Small Advances Lead in Each of the Districts—Read and See Promptly at ]0 o'clock tomorrow evening the special prize period now in progress in The Heralds 128,000 voting contest will conn- to a clove. Ballot- Ing will be carried on up to the stroke of 10 for oißht special prize-, to be di vided among the two candidates show ing the two greatest Increases In each Of the four contest districts. l.rjl At OPPORTUNITIES Increases made between May i and May L'l inclusive ore what Will tnesse prizes. rue reason tor offering prizes for increases shown is to en courage new candidates to start cam paigning and to encourage veteran can didates to continue their campaign. As can be seen, all candidates entered this Special prise period on an equal foot ing because no votes cast prior to May 8 apply On this offer. It is only what lias been done since May 7 and what will be done before 10 p. m. tomorrow that counts. IXCRBASIW ARK SMALL The vote standing of candidates was published in yesterday's paper, and it you looked It over you found that the increases made up to fi o'clock Wednes dya evening were very .small. Miss Ruth Virden of Oxnard, a brand new candidate, had shown an increase of 16.459 votes, and this gives her the lead for the $650 worth of California HERR PROCHNOW property, consisting of a $250 lot in Brawley, Imperial valley; a $200 lot in Westmoreland, Imperial valley, and a $200 lot in Ocean Side Park. The 16,489 represent approximately one club (ten new yearly subscriptions). Miss Virden reached this Increase total with a few hours' work, and thus has shown all candidates what determined effort can accomplish. SOME MORE EXAMPLES Jennie Van Allen, representing the American Woman's league In this city, lias cost 8630 increase votes, and led for the $100 diamond ring. She was fol lowed closely by Mrs. Hester T. Grfif tith, with 5686 votes, leading- for the $100 lady's evening gown. Miss Mar garet Welgand, who has been a special prize winner In almost every offer, had shown 27f>3 increase votes, and thus led for the $100 music course under the per sonal instruction of Prof. A. D. Hunter. Mrs. Mary Bailiff, who has just begun to appear among prominent candidates, had cast 1400 increase votes and was in line for the $75 diamond ring. Miss Henrietta Holle, who has been carry lag on a consistent campaign, was lead log for the double trip to Lake Tahoe •with 510 votes. Mrs. Anna KalHwoda, ■who has maintained a splendid record through her own efforts, was leading for the $55 violin with 450 votes, and Juan Barcena of Yum a, Ariz., was leading for the Eastman kodak with 400 increase votes. "A GENTLE TIP" The last three totals mentioned rep resent, less votes than are issued on a new yearly subscription (850 votes). This .shows you what splendid oppor tunities are offered candidates who have ability to see and do things, some candidates might say: "These small leads do not mean anything. There no doubt will lie changes on the last day of the period.',' The contest man would call the attention of these people to some of the results at the close of the last period, in which candidates won valuable prizes through an afternoon's activity. Notable among these easy victories was that of a candidate who ■won a kodak and supplies ($33) with 7000 votes, representing approximately a half dozen yearly subscriptions. DO VOl it BEST Now, what candidate has not a half dozen friend: who would gladly cast their votes when their doing so meant fo much for a favorite? All candidates must understand that the city and out side territory are on an absolutely equal footing. The candidate residing in some small village In a most, lone some territory ,m win the very highest prize. All that 18 necessary is a few hours' hustling.

WATER RATES ARE STILL UNADJUSTED Councilman Says That Hollywood Company Got Its 'Gifts' by Holdup PROPERTIES ARE INVENTORIED Utilities Board Asks Time to Make Supplemental Report on San Pedro Rates Three sessions of the council —morn- ingr. afternoon and night—were held yes terday to c.insider the question Of water rates for the Union Hollywood Water | company and the Ban Pedro Water company, and al the end of the night session Meyer I.issuer, president of the I of public utilities, asked time to submit a supplemental report on the San Pedro water rates. He said that certain facts had been brought oui at ! the Inquiry that the board had vainly tlied lv get, ami i ile.-i- miii 11 n• • i.ii . c . justified further report. This supple ' mental report Is expected next Monday morning. By putting the engineer for the Ban Pedro Water company On the witness stand. 11. J, Ooudge, attorney for the San Pedro Water company, answered the question asked him yesterday by T. B. Comstock, engineer for the board of public utilities, of what had become of more than a hundred millions of gallons of water that had been pumped through the mains and yi t hail never come oil* of the taps of the record con sumers. Mr. Comstock had taken the figures of the water company's engl ■ neer, A. J. Connors, for the statement iof pumpage, nut Connors s-iid last night that he did not mean the figures to be accurate. He declared he com p'uti d his figures of pumpage on the maximum capacity of the pumps and multiplied a maximum pumpage by til. hours the pump was In operation, and that he did n<>t deduct anything for the time the pump was out of com mission for leakage, waste or anything else. TROBE HOLLYWOOD HATM The time of the council during the morning and afternoon hearings was taken up by the I'nion Hollywood Water company in an effort to show that the reduction in rates for water service recommended by the board of public utilities be not applied to it. Officers of this water company were On the stand almost seven hours and tried hard, under the careful ques tioning of W. P. Haas, attorney for the Union Hollywood company, to show the council that the valuation of plant and depreciation were as had been figured In the report submitted to the board of public utilities. Every nickel's worth of property owned by the I'nion Hollywood Water company was Inventoried for the benefit of the council, for it is on plant valuation thai the rates will be fixed, the law requiring that the council must make a rate that will give a fair return on the money invested. The councilmen who had to listen to this technical talk could hardly keep awake, but there was one bright little Incident in the morning session. Meyer I.issuer, president of the board of public utilities, brought it out when he casually asked O. E. Wern, secretary of the Union Holly wood Water company, how much the company received when it laid pipes In new tracts of land. Mr. Wern innocently answered that the com pany expected and »eccived a bonus Of 126 a/i acre. (.M.i.s "(JUTS' iioi.nrr Lissner wanted to know why that was not included In the company's nents of earnings, and Wern replied that a bonus was not earnings, but a pi ft, and was included in an item of $26,000 of "revenue from other sources." An argument sprung up over the question of whether this money was earnings or what, and Councilman Betkouskl settled it conclusively when he said: "Just call it plain holdup, for that's what it is." The councilmen have been highly pleased with the way in which T. B. Comstock, tlie engineer for the board of public utilities, has handled the water- eases. He appears to be ready for any situation and oven the clever est lawyers the corporations can bring against him cannot shake his fund of fact. He is loaded to tin guards with figures bi arlng on every subject under discussion and has turned to the ad vantage nf the city little things tho opposing attorneys thought were for i Ivea alone. r|':iis was especially noticeable In the presentation of the i thi Union Hollywood Water , ompany.

On Monday evening, May 23, we will have another landseekers' excursion to Lindsay, the famous' Early Orange District of Cali fornia, at which time we have a rate of $5.00 for the round trip, including sleeper. This special rate is made to landseekers in order that those who have never seen the Lindsay Orange District and who are really desirous of getting hold of first-class orange land, close to town, school and churches, may have an opportunity of seeing what we have to offer at very small expense. We do not care what district you have seen or what bargains have been offered you. We feel sure we have something better for considerable less money. Lindsay is not an experiment, as there are over 10,000 acres planted to oranges, ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. These groves we can guarantee to be in perfect condition and far ahead of any other groves the same age in the state. We have several large subdivisions which we have recently put on the market in 10, 20 and 40-acre tracts, all close to Lindsay, and as we own every acre we offer for sale we are in a position to make prices and terms on this land to suit all. Now, if you are interested in orange land and are in position to buy if you see something that suits you, do not delay but come in at once and arrange to go up with us on Monday evening, as we know we have what will suit you, no matter how particular y° arC D.
