It was quite a tonic to the tired enumerator, but It cost him con siderably more than three cents to make a return call on the facetious person to get the correct information. i "We are caußed a great deal of trou ble by recalcitrant individuals, who form n. mistaken Idea of their own lrn portaaco, or chronic meanness, refuse at first, to give us the required infor mation," said 11. C. Llchtenberger, spe cial deputy to Census Supervisor J*armer last night. "All the enumerators have instruc tions to treat the public with all possi ble courtesy and to rkfrain from an officious and authoritative demeanor, b/at the high pressure under which we rife all working, necessary to the com pletion of the census in the required «ime limit, makes tt Impossible for us to pass three or four hours with s any Individual who takes a notion to with hold information. Furthermore it is a Ifreat injustice to the enumerators, who are working by the name. ' "It is quite possible that tho next refusal to give necessary data to an enumerator will be followed by the ar rest of the offender as an example. I may butt in but won't be a goat," he says. "Since the explanation of the census law to tho hotel men of the city, they have been doing all in their power to help us," said Mr. Farmer yesterday, "arid returns from these, as well as from all other sources, are coming In very satisfactorily." i The enumeration of the Japanese In little Tokio has been practically com pleted, and work will be commenced in Chinatown this morning. The Ori entals have been very frank with the enumerators.

COMET GIVES EYEACHE TO GARVANZA RESIDENTS Halley's Fiery Flyer Is Seen but Briefly by Few at Sunrise Halley s comet, that njysterlous wan derer in the skies and for which hun dreds of persons have risen from their beds "early and craned their necks to view, wns seen yesterday morning a few minutes after 5 o'clock by at least three persons living in Garvanza. The celestial body was observed by the throo spectators Just a little north of the point where the sun made its orbit a few minutes later than when It was discovered by tho early risers. In appearance it was not unlike the familiar stars, being a little larger than the morning star and In appear ance oval and silvery. It did not sein tlfate, but when the rays of the sun, which at the time was below the sum mit line of a ridge of hills, it made tl yes of the observers ache and be come nearly blinded. The comet wns visible to the behold ers for the space of ten minuten. when tho brightness of the sun, which, in relation to the vision plane of the spec tators, was close to the «ky tramp, made it physically impossible to gase at the object with any degroe of com fort. From now on It will be more difficult each day to observe the astronomical wonder, until it drops behind the solar body, when It may be seen again with approximate ease. Just after sunset 1 the evening. No tall could be seen unless It was the tail together with the head which gave the aerial traveler the oval form. WILLEMSTAD. Curacao, AT>ril 19.— Halley's comet was visible to the naked eye here at 5 o'clock this morning. WOMAN SWALLOWS POISON; DOOMED TO SLOW'DEATH Admits Intent to End Life, but Ho tel Man Scoffs at Story NOGALKS, Ariz., April 19.—A young woman, American, and a stranger here, took twelve ounces of corrosive sub limate with suicidal intent last night. Physicians say she probably will die within eight days. The young woman came to Nogales five days ago from Mexico and regis tered at one of the hotels here as "A. Kennedy." She took a room alone. Two days later Al Kennedy, a former saloon man and gambler, carthe from Mexico and registered at the same hotel. He took the same room and the couple were registered as man and wife. Sunday night or Monday morn ing Kennedy hunted up a physician and said the woman had taken poison. She confessed to the doctor she had taken twelve grains of corrosive subli mate with suicidal Intent. The pro prietor of the hotel doubts that the woman has taken poison. He says she has a good appetite and thinks she la "playing "possum" for a purpose. POLL TAX REBEL IN ILLINOIS IMPRISONED Costs City $3.25 a Day to Avenge $1.50 Debt GRAFTON, 111.. April 19.—Because J. J. Keon, a Socialist leader, refuses to pay a poll tax of $1.50 he began this afternoon to serve six months in jail. The city hall has been converted into a jail by screening the windows with chicken wire, and Keon declares lie will serve his full time rather than pay the tax or work it out at 75 cents a day. Ho holds such a tax is unconsti tutional. Keon's meals will be brought, from the city's leading- hotel and a special deputy has been sworn In to look after him, making the cost of his keep to the city $3.25 a day.

CALL URGED FOR RAILROAD BOARD Friends Now Believe Local Demo crat Will Be Candidate for Commissioner POLITICAL POT IS SEETHING Chairman Norton Calls Confer ence to Canvass Makeup of Party Ticket Joseph H. Call has taken under ad visement the formal request marie by a committee of prominent local Dem ocrats that he become an avowed can didate for railroad commissioner. Mr. Call, when first urged to an nounce his candidacy, replied that he felt rather reluctant to enter the race. He finally agreed to reserve his de cision, however, and it is the hope and the expectation ot his thousands of friends in the Democratic party anJ out of it that ho will accept. Democrats believe that with Joseph H. Call as the candidate a nomination is equivalent to an election. They point out the Importance to the state of redeeming the railroad commission from Southern Pacific domination and they argue that this can only be done if men like Mr. Call will come into the fight and thus make it possible for local shippers to wrest from a hostile railroad corporation equitable rates, rates among other things that will per mit them to compete on equal terms with San Francisco. It is the hope of those Democrats who first proposed the Call candidacy that Mr. Call's friends will see him, or call him up on the phone and urge him to stand for the nomination. This should be done at once,.and it is prac tically certain that if enough men show their interest In the matter and make it plain to Joseph H. Call that his party needs him, he will not refuse. Mr. Call yesterday again declared emphatically that he would not be a candidate for the gubernatorial nom ination. He assured Albert M. Norton that he realized his candidacy would result in dividing the vote of the Good Government forces within the Demo cratic party and that nothing was fur ther from his intention than to endan ger the success of the Good Govern ment movement within Democratic ranks. Judge Ling and J. F. Paulding were speakers at the weekly meeting of the Btanton Boosters' club held in the Hollenbeek cafe yesterday noon. John T. Pope, the club's executive, presided. City Attorney Leslie Hewitt, who had been announced to speak in behalf of Mr Stanton, was not present. Before adjourning the meeting Pres ldeQt Pope appointed Messrs. Harmon and Leeds a committee to secure the presence of Assemblyman Cogswell at next Tuesday's meeting of the club and to invite him to make an address. Mayor Alexander is not a Stantgn man and he doesn't hesitate to say so. No one yet has ever accused the mayor of trimming. Certainly he was not in a conciliatory mood yesterday after noon when he met Charlie Fleming on Broadway in front of the city hall and stopped to speak with him. "What are you doing now, Char lie?" his honor askod. "I'm boosting for Stanton," Fleming replied. "You ought to come in ith us." The mayor didn't hesitate an in "l'm tired of having people talk to me about Stanton for governor," he retorted. "I, personally, would rather vote for Walter Parker." Certainly he couldn't have put it stronger, for the mayor's liking for Parker probably is Just as fervent as the liking of the Southern Pacific boss for the mayor. W. T. Harris was yesterday named as secretary of the Democratic county central committee, vice Irving Walker, resigned. Mr. Harris entered upon his duties immediately and from now "on the committee will undertake a strong campaign to secure the best possible list of candidates with which to go before the people at thf coming pri mary election. Harris is a hard worker and a man who always has been prominent in the Democratic ranks. Up to the time of his appointment as secretary he had been chairman of the campaign com mittee and he was largely responsible for the thorough campaign conducted by Los Angeles county Democrats at the last presidential election. More re cently he was chairman of the commit tee on credentials at the state confer ence held here a few days ago. Mr. Harris came to Los Angeles about six years ago from San Bernar dino, where he had been secretary of the local Democratic central commit tee. He is in the real estate busi ness. Albort M. Norton, chairman of the Democratic county central committee, yesterday sent out a circular letter to every precinct committeeman in Los Angeles county, announcing the call- Ing of a county conference to be held May 14, at which each committeeman will be entitled to name two delegates. At this conference the makeup of the Democratic county ticket will be can vassed. The letter follows: "Dear Sir: I desire to have the Las Angeles county central committee composed of men who will take an active part in the coming campaign. Our county central committee Is well organized in this county, but I desire to have It in still better condition. "If you care to continue to act as committeeman in your precinct, and will take an active part in the cam paign about to come, will you kindly fill out the enclosed card and mall to me Immediately? If I do not get a re sponse from you by April 28 I will take it that you do not care to act as oommltteoman; so if you care to act be sure to answer by that time. If you cannot act as committeeman kindly send me on the same card the name of some active Democrat in your pre cinct who will act. "A conference of Los Angeles county Democrats will be held in Blanchard hall, 233 South Broadway, on May 14, 1910. By a resolution adopted at the last meeting of the county central committee, each committeeman is en titled to select two delegates to the conference, to be selected in any way the committeeman may desire. Will you kindly decldp who these ti%> d«i«- DRAMATIC CRITIC WHO DIES AFTER SIX DAYS' ILLNESS X in, 'WE; Mt mkC GEORGE A.

"By attending to both these matters at your earliest oportunity, you will have started what in a very short time will be one of the best organized coun ty central committees in the state. Yours very truly, "ALBERT M. NORTON, Chairman." Philip A. Rtanton and a number of his supporters visited Watts, Compton and Downey In automobiles! yesterday. At each place delegations of citizens were met and addressed by the candi date. Mr. Stanton and party left later last night for Calexico, where an automo bile tour of the Imperial valley will be begun. Next weeek the candidate will visit all of the beach cities of Los Angeles and Orange counties, and the follow ing week will start on his eight weeks automobile tour of Central and North ern California. LAUD NEW ENGLANDERS FOR PATRIOTIC INTEREST Now Englanders crowded the assem bly room of the chamber of commerce to overflowing last night at the re ception given by the chamber to the New England society and the Sons of the American Revolution, and standing room in the adjoining rooms and corri dors within reach of the speakers' voices was at a premium, although a large number strolled about the exhibit hall renewing old acquaintances. The program wuh opened by Joseph Scott, president of the chamber of commerce, with an addre=B of welcome, In which he complimented the New Englanders on the interest manifested in things patriotic by the society, as well as the prominent part many form er residents of the "down east" states have taken in the upbuilding of Los Angeles. Judge C. J. Noyos, president of the New England society, in responding: to the welcome of the chamber, took oc casion to compliment that body on the splendid work it has done in connec tion with the harbor and aqueduct. The prinlpal speaker of the. evening was Dr. Clarkson N. Guyer of the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, who delivered an address on "Patriotic Societies." Bishop T. J. Conaty delivered a patriotic address, and Miss Emma Marmon and Mrs. Carlotta Gotwaldt contributed several vocal solos to the program.

DOBINSON IS CALLED BY DEATH Dean of Local Dramatic Critics Dies After Illness of Less Than a Week LIVED HERE FOR 35 YEARS Was Pioneer Real Estate Man and Active in Developing Los Angeles George A. Doblnson, formerly welt known as a man of affairs, and re cently noted for his interest in the drama and authoritative knowledge of everything pertaining to dramatic art, died yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock after an illness of less than one week. He was itrlcken with apoplexy last Thursday night, but partly regained consciousness Saturday and hope for his recovery was aroused. Monday morning a change for the wor»« took place and he continued to sink until the end. • Mr. Doblnson was born in London, England, August 21, 1843. He studied law there, and after coming to Cali fornia in 1870 was admitted to general practice. His first residence in this state was in San Francisco, where he was associated with the R. G. Dun Mercantile agency, going from there to Portland and eventually coming to Los Angeles in 1875. He became in terested in real estate and had busi ness affiliations with prominent men of the city, among them Tom Rowan, since deceased, J. A. Fairchild and Louis Vetter. Ha was interested in the subdivision of the Bonnie Brae tract, Just tliis side of Westlake park, then a meadow land, and was an owner of extensive property interests at that time. Throughout his life Mr. Doblneon was a student and patron of the stage, and had a complete collection of lit erature pertaining to theatrical affairs. He finally drifted into the position of literary and dramatic critic on the daily papers here, a position which was thoroughly congenial to him, and in which his authority was recognized. He was easily' entitled to the title of deanlof dramatic critics here, not only in point of ability, but in experience as well. Recently he established a school of expression, which has a large clientele, not only of students who aspired to dramatic work, but of others who de sired to develop good taste in litera ture and greater flexibility and ex pressive powers with the speaking voice. The surviving relatives in Los An geles are his widow, Mrs. Florence A. Dobinson, and one sister, Mrs. \V. R. Blackman. The funeral services will be held at Donlnson's auditorium (the Gamut club) Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
