Mrs. Minnie Abbott Smith began an
action for divorce from Isaiah H.
Smith, one of the heirs to the Keating
estate, in Judge Monroe's court yes
terday, In which the defendant denies
that he was ever legally married to
the plaintiff. A feature of the con
test is that Smith married the widow
of the late Andrew J. Keating, and on
her death he is said to have received
$100,000. which the heirs are seeking
to have returned on the ground that
Smith was not legally can view

self and child occasionally, she said.
and addressed a number of cards and
letters to her which she introduced in

Following her testimony, Judge Mon

he told the attorneys for the plaintiff
that evidence corroborating the al

are seeking to have Smith return

wife were present at the trial and

News of the Courts
Joy Rides and Absence Nights
Make Beatrice Again
H. I* Griffith secured an interlocu
tory decree of , divorce from Beatrice
Griffith, on the ground of desertion
yesterday In Judge James' court, the
testimony indicating that the defen
dant preferred late hours, automobile
rides and conquests over a wider
range, than the confines of a comfor
table and sedate home allowed.
The plaintiff testified that his wife
had frequently stayed away over night
and on returning had explained that
she was visiting her mother, when tele
phone messages to the latter revealed
that she had not seen her daughter
during the time Involved.
Prances Griffith, sister of the plain
tiff, testified that on one occasion Mrs.
Griffith came up to their home,in an
automobile with other men and/ asked
her to feu «/ut for a "joy riuts." She
had refused, saying to the defendant
that it was unbecoming a married wo
man to run around with other men.
Mrs. Griffith, the plaintiff's mother,
also testified against the defendant,
declaring that she had frequently been
missing over night and was known to
be out with other men. Her daughter,
Frances, declared she had seen the
defendant on the street after an ab
sence and that she looked as though
she had been in a fight, the indica
tions being that she had been celebrat
ing to an unusual extent the night
The husband testified that after he
married the defendant, he found out i
that she was an adopted daughter and
was only 16 years old, when she rep
resented to him that she was IS years
of age. .
Mrs. A. L Sturges Tells Story as
She Weeps in Court
With tears running down her
cheeks, Mrs. Almee Louisa Sturges
explained to Judge Conrey yesterday
that she was trying to secure a divorce
because her husband requested her to
and because she loved him enough to
comply with his request.
The defendant was Varney Knight
Sturges, and the plaintiff in the case
charged him formally with desertion
and non-support. She said he had
suggested that she get a divorce from
him on those grounds, and he gave
her $50 to pay the expense of the suit,
she told the court.
The situation was a pitiable one for
the plaintiff, who has an impediment
in her speech. Never was there a
plaintiff in an action who was less
anxious to win than she was, and on
hearing her story the court dismissed
the case, the plaintiff leaving the court
room with tears streaming from her
eyes and undecided whether to feel re
lieved or otherwise.
Gus Witt, who is known as "Gloomy
Q-us," was held to answer to the

Witt is charged with forging the
name of J. I. McKenna to a check for
$12, which he passed on W. A. Saxman,
a grocer at Santa Barbara and Nor

Attorneys for Donovan contended
that there was insufficient information
against him for a cause of action, but

of tlie defendant, Judge Davis held him
for trial Monday morning at 10 o'clock

James A. Anderson Reviews Work
of Year—Annual Election
of Officers Held
Tho Municipal League of Los Angeles
held its annual meeting at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon and elected the
following officers for the coming year:
President, J. O. Koepfll: first vice
president, James A. Anderson; second
vice president, R. W. Burnham; mem
bers of executive committee, in addi
tion to the foregoing, Marshall Stim
son, J. \V. Whittington, Martin Beklns,
Frank Simpson, A. L. Stetson, Louis
Lichtenberger, B. N. Coftman, Dr. El
bert Wing:, Traeey C. Becker, Louis W.
Myers and Willard Arnott.
Vice president James A. Anderson
submitted a report for the year last
past, which in part follows:
"Following: a period which was, per
haps, the most important in the history
of the league, and in which events of
great importance crowded fast upon
each other, the year now drawing to a
close seems almost tame by compari
son; and yet the influence of the league
as a forceful factor in civic affairs was
probably never so far-reaching as at
present. The growth of the league has
been most gratifying, its membership
now amounting to about 1000; and de
spite the active part taken in strenu
ous civic matters, which unfortunately
aroused intense feeling among our citi
zens, the resignations have been negli
•The most important act of the league
during the past year was the initiation
of the ordinance creating the public
utility commission of this city.
"Last November the first test of the
non-partisan primary election provision
of our charter was had. This league
is to some extent responsible for the
adoption of this amendment, for
through its efforts this, with others of
great importance, was presented to the
voters through the initiative provisions
of the constitution, and adopted by the
"One of the most recent acts of your
committee was the indorsement of the
report of the city engineer relating- to
the paving of railways between their
tracks, and the approval of an ordi
nance as to such matters presented by
our city attorney. The questions
raised are of the greatest importance,
as under the lax and uncontrolled
methods heretofore adopted by the
railways the result has been that the
tracks on paved streets have been a
constant annoyance to the traveling
public, and in many cases a disgrace
to the city, and have proved conclu
sively that such methods are wrong.
"Your president has been in close
touch with the good roads situation as
a member of the advisory committee.
He also, as a member of the commit
tee representing the civic bodies, aided
in the work of consolidation of Los An
geles with the towns of Wilmington
I and Pan Pedro, and recently, as head
of this league, was a member of the
committee having in charge the cam
paign for harbor and power bonds.
"Since the last report the issuance
of the paper known as Municipal Af
fairs by this body has been discon
tinued, and in its place a department
of the Pacific Outlook Is devoted to
those matters.
"In this connection I must say the
best thing that has happened for the
league for the past year is the gradual
restoration to health and strength of
our beloved former secretary, Charles
D. Willard, who has so far recovered
that, while not taking the active part
which in early years contributed more
than aught else to the success of our
body, can and does sive us the constant
aid of his experience and wisdom, and
in particular haa charge of the munici
pal affaire department of the Outlook.
'The immediate future looms large
for Los Angeles. There lies before us
the great work (if development of our
harbor, of the development and distri
bution of our electric power, and of
providing for wale of .surplus power
and Owens river water. These are
calling Insistently for attention, and
will tax the energy and forethought of
our officiate and citizens to the utmost.
"The league stands ready to work
with other earnest citizens to insure the
success of these great affairs, that the
expectation! of our people when voting
the necessary bonds may be fully

Municipal Affairs
Rages Because It Is City's Turn
to Pay for Ornamental
Street Lights
My! my! my! But Josias Jeremiah
Andrews did "Jump on" some nice
people yesterday. They were Gilbert
Wright, P. W. Blanchard, Joseph Mes
mer and some others who appeared be
fore the streets committee to take up
the subject of the city paying for the
juice in the ornamental lamp posts on
Hill, Broadway, Spring and Main
streets for the coming year.
"It's not a square deal for the city
to pay for the beautlfication of your
Broadway property," said Andrews.
"Square deal!" is Andrews' cuss word.
"Ifs not right that the poor man
who gets $2 a day should be made to
pay taxes so you rich peqple can have
lots of light In front of your property
when he hasn't even one little arc lamp
out in his neighborhood. If you want
these lights, you should pay for them
The ornamental lamp posts were
erected on a "gentlemen's agreement"
with a former council that the prop
erty owners would pay for the posts
and the light every other year, the city
to pay for the light on alternate years.
The city must pay for the next year,
and it will cost more than J36.0U0 to
light the four principal main streets.
That's why Andrews objected so hard.
The members of the committee
chewed on this light business until
they were all pretty warm under the
collar, then they passed the buck to
the board of public works for a recom
A. D. Patterson Fails to Repay
One Woman $300
A. D. Patterson, a fireman of engine
company No. 5, was dismissed by the
lire commission yesterday morning be
cause he was naughty. Incidentally
Mrs. M. C. Husman's heart is plumb
■busted," for she says Patterson prom
ised to marry her and didn't do it.
According to testimony introduced at
the hearing yesterday morning, the
mere fact that the marriage ceremony
was not performed didn't appear to
make much difference. Both of them
said so to the commission.
ilrs. Husman claims that while they
were on friendly terms Patterson bor
rowed $300 of her to go into the busi
ness of buying and selling horses. Some
time after she found out he was mar
ried legally, and then she demanded
he return her money. He gave her a
note for the amount and promised to
repay it $20 a month. He made two
payments and then stopped, threaten
ing to blackmail her, she says, if she
pressed the claim. But she took a
chance and presented the claim to the
flre commission.
Loading Station Probably Will Be
Moved to New Site
The streets committee of the council
got as far with the solution of the
garbage problem yesterday as taking
It under advisement. That the matter
has been under advisement for several
weeks didn't seem to bother the com
mittee at all.
The ultimate solution of the proposi
tion seems to be that the garbage
leading station will be located at the
old Incinerator site, where it will be
out of everyone's way. But to do this
will require either that the garbage
must be hauled in cars through the
main portion of the city or that a third
rail must be laid for a mile along Santa
Fe avenue to make the tracks on that
street standard gauge. One of these
alternatives probably will be de
cided on.
Fifty or more men and women who
object to the present loading station on
Aliso and Anderson streets appeared
before the committee yesterday and
made a mighty protest against its
further continuance at that place. ■
The fire department is being buncoed
on its purchase of briquettes, accord
ing to a statement made to the. fire
commission yesterday by Commissioner
Hawley. He declared that every sack

weight and that the city is paying
$5.50 a ton for the fu<l while the con

It Is a common thing for people to pur

As a matter of fact, they do not accom

is true If we examine into the matter care

amounts of minerals. That is why it Is
