CITY GETS DUKE'S FORMER GARDENER Frank Sherer, Braw Scot, to Be Superintendent of Parks for a While Frank Sherer was yesterday ap pointed "temporary" landscape en glneer and "temporary" acting park su perintendent by the park commission. While it is expected Sherer eventually will be the choice of the commission, all the "temporaries" were put in to play safe. If the commission makes up it=> mind it doesn't care for Sherer the "temporaries" leave an easy way to slide out. Sherer is about as big as a minute, physically, but Is said to be a pretty warm proposition when it comes to knowing about landscape gardening nnd how to make parks beautiful. He has been doing: some work for the com mission in connection with the proposed improvements in the parks, and what he has done has been most satisfactory, He Is a Scotchman by birth but a naturalized American by choice, and for the last twenty years has been doing nothing but puttering around gardens somewhere. He began his career as a gardener's apprentice on the estate of the duke of Richmond and Gordon. Home class to that! Then be entered the service of the British government in the Hoyal botanic garden in Edin burgh, and there he took a technical course in the university studying the sciences underlying horticulture and forestry. Snerer ramp to this contry as soon as lie could break away from Scotland and was the landscape gardener at Dungeness, Carnegie's winter home In Florida. He was also connected in a similar capacity with the Gould estate on "Long Island. In fact, dukes and millionaires and things like that are about the only people Sherer lias asso ciated with, according to the biographi cal sketch handed out by the park com mission yesterday.

See that you get what you ask for That Moving Habit appeared before the commission yester day to see If that body would stand f'nr it. The matter Is entirely up to the council, for this land must be ac quired by condemnation at the expense of the property owners, but Commis sioner Silent let It be plainly seen that he, for one, did not want any more parks until the parks that the city now has look like real parks. BROOKS SLAYERS UNCAUGHT; POLICE CHIEF BEGS HELP My detectives and patrolmen are not able to so much as get a workable clew to the identity of the murderers of Patrolman David Brooks; please ask the council tn offer a reward for some private citizen tn get <>nt and do it. WU the damaging- confession of Chief Galloway i<> the police commission last night. it was evident that it wai a bitter pill fur the commission to swallow, for the commissioners didn't say very much about it and hesitated somewhat, but finally agreed to ask the council to post a reward of $500 to b>- given to the man, woman or child who can produce the murderers of the patrol man. WANT TO COLLECT $10,000 AND FIX UP CENTRAL PARK Hand over that $10,000 that was set aside for public comfort stations in Central park so we may fix up the park in other ways os the demand the park in other ways, is the demand the council, 'l'lu- $10,000 for comfort sta tions was appropriated in the budget last July, but it has stayed there • ver since, ami the commission believes thai the money might as well be working. If it can get the. money the park board will proceed at once to reconstruct the park. One of the first things t,i I" done will lie to spade up the ground and sweeten the soil. A water system for automatic sprinkling will be in stalled. GIVE THE PUBLIC MARKET RIGHT TO LAY SPUR TRACK Sure thing, lot the Los Angeles pub lic market have a spur track on Ala meda street, near Industrial, but don't be too liberal, says the board of pub lic utilities in ix report to the council which will be acted on this morning. Instead of granting the franchise for twenty-one years, as has been the cus tom, grant it (or ten years only, says the board, and then make it revocable at the will of the council. •-►-» — WANT GRIFFITH PARK PROTECTED FROM FIRE Firebreaks must be built in Griffith park right away if that magnificent tract of forest and mountain is to be saved from the danger of fire this sum mer. In order to do this the park com mission will ask the council today to appropriate $3000. This money will be used to employ twenty-five laborers to build the firebreaks and trails. When ever possible the two will be con i. ted so the same money will spread around more. LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 17. 1010. YOU CAN SELL GOLDFISH, BUT NOT CARP, SAYS LAW Commission Is Afraid Westlake Park Will Sink to China The park commission can sell gold fish out of the parks but it cannot sell carp. That is the law. Get that, will you! Isn't that cutting it pretty fine twlxt tweedledum and tweedledee? The park commission does not want to s.-ll any goldfish, but it does want to sell some carp. A fish dealer has offered to pay the city $25 a month for ihe privilege of taking: the carp out of Westlnke park and the commission hailed the proposition with joy, for It was almost ready to pay somebody to do it, for the carp eat the nests of other fish and destroy them. But no. Nothing- doing! says the city attorney, unless an ordinance or two is amended. By the time the necessary red tape can be accomplished and the ordinance put into execution the blooming carp will have chewed a hole through the bottom of the lake and let the whole park down to China. SOMETHING IS DOING ON THE LIQUOR ORDINANCE Well, at last there there is something really doing on the liquor ordinance. The public welfare committee stuck itself off In a corner yesterday after noon with Guy Eddie, city prosecutor, who is also likely to be the next city attorney, and trimmed away at the new liquor legislation that has been so long under consideration. There was much to do and the committee re turned to the work last night. More work will be done on it during the coming week, and Eddie said last night that it is probable the ordinance will be reported to the council for adoption next Tuesday. ♦ » » — PAUL KERKOW IS DENIED LIQUOR LICENSE FOR CAFE Paul Kerkow does not seem to have any stronger pull with the police com mission today than he did last Jan uary. Just to .show him that such was the case, the police commission last night denied his application lor a res taurant liquor permit for his cafe at. ■m South Broadway. Kerkow had a permit once, but it was revoke,] January 10 when It was shown to the satisfaction of the com mission that Kerkow hud sold liquor without regard to whether a beefsteak with the hnttle.

Hardies Orthodoxy Is Given Two Hard Jolts at Meth odist Gathering One minister plainly informed an other that he was "as orthodox as the devil" at the Methodist Preachers as- Hociation meeting yesterday at the First Methodist church. The conroversy began when Rev. Alexander Ilardle exiiressed his radical orthodox views In connection with the announcement that J. C. Seherer, presi dent of Throop Polytechnic institute of Pasadena, would deliver the commence ment address for the University of Southern California June 16. Rev. Mr. Hardle denounced the liberal Viewi of Dr. Hcherer as dangerous in their influence. In defense of Dr. Scherer Rev. Mutt S. Hushes gave him a glowing tribute and informed Rev. Mr. Hardla that he was closely allied to the devil as well as his orthodoxy. This did not prevent Hey. Mr. Hurdle from making an attack on Robert Louis Stevenson, on whose life and work Rev. J. A. Oeißßlnger, pastor of the Univer sity church, read a paper. Mr. Hardie accused Stevenson of being an infidel and made a protest that the paper was very unsafe, instruction. Xn defense of liis paper. Key. Mi. GtotMlnfftf fairly squelched the opposi tion made by Mr. Hardie in a way that Itarted tlie delegates laughing. Rev. Mr. Geisalngor's paper gave a plain statement of the life of Steven son, inrluding his illness and hardships in his literary work. A resolution was adopted reprardinK the indorsement of a bill which Con- gressman Smith of lowa will introduce' in the house of representatives making the sending of prize fight photographs or literature through the United States mails punishable by heavy tines and im prisonment.
