Edison Official Urges Employes to
Help Defeat Ordinance
at the Polls
Says Electrical Business in Los
Angeles Between Devil
and Deep Sea
Employes of the Southern California
Edison company were urged in get out
and vote and work against the light
rate ordinance by H. it. Ballard, secre
tary and assistant general manager of
the company, fn a speech at a banquet
given by the employes to the officers of
the company at Levy 1* last night.
Thn <• hundred were present.
The electric light rate iltuatlon was
discussed at length from the company's
standpoint. George Decker was chair
man and B. i'". Pearson acted :is toast
master. Mr. Ballard, who was the
principal speaker, wild In part:
"The sitiialitai Is ji lst thin—the elec

to earn interest on our securities, and
on the other regulations of the bond
houses which require them to rertlfy to
a reasonable earning power before they
can dispose of our securities to the in
vestors. Now there you are.
"We cannot mako people buy bonds
that will not pay as good a return on
the money as other forms of securities,
and we cannot fro ahead With exten
sions unless we Bell bonds to pay for
the. extensions.
"The board of public utilities de
cllned to give us a chance to appear
and present our proof of valuations
and demonstrate the cost of making
and delivering electricity. The council
took up their report and rushed H
through with unceremonious haste, and
the result Is the 7-eent rate ordinanci

the city of lop Angeles which is 40 per
cent below the average rate in fifty
seven representative American cities.
"YOU men know where the work of
electric construction lias been going on.
It Isn't only in the downtown districts
nor in the settled residential districts
but out on the new subdivisions where
tracts are being platted and streets
graded in advance of the carpenter and
the mason or the painter, who follow
wllh absolute certainty In the footsteps
of the men who plant poles, string
wires and lay gas mains.
"Most of you were with us during
1007. Money was pretty close (hat year
and there ' was not much extension
work. It wa% not until the financial
conditions eased up and the extensions
wen' continued that the building tradi ■
resumed activity and the city began to
grow again. You have friends among
the real estate men and the builders
and you know that they will confirm
this statement.
■•In 1907 «c could well isome securities
and do some extension work. That was
because the condition was general and
not local and our company was on a
good basis and the bond people knew
that just as soon as good times came
back we would be In a first class posi
tion to go on earning a reasonable am!
proper return on the money that they
have entrusted US with.

Good Government Forces Draw a
Crowd to Aker's Hall to
Hear Addresses
Coming Election Will Mean Step
Forward or Backward
for This City
Guy Eddie, city prosecuting- attorney,
in an address to. the voters of the V«r
non district, in Aker's hall, Central av
enue and Vernon street, last night, ap
pealed for the indorsement of the pres
ent Good Government administration,
the election of Messrs. Stewart and
Whiften to the city council, stating
that on the outcome of the pending
councilmanic election next Thursday—
which will bo a step forward or back

to determine whether or not they will
Invest their capital in Los Angeles fol
lowing the development of the great
Owens river water power projsct.
"The eyes of millions of people
throughout the civilized world," he
.-iid. -are eagerly watching us, and
these people have been pointing in the
past to the City of the Angels as a
paragon of the progressive and popular
form of government, in which the brew
ery, railway, power, lighting and other
public utility and commodity corpora
tions have been compelled to serve the
people, observe their laws and accede
to tin Ir wishes.
"These outsiders have held Los Ange
les up as a model city in their .struggle
to reform and improve their own mu
nicipalities, ami they have watched the
Hist six months of our progress under a
Good Government administration with
intense interest.
"The word has gone out through the
newspaper! of the country that the new
administration has done more for the
City Hum any in its history; that it
lias been conducted more loyally to the
people's Interests, and that it has
proved a triumph for right and jus
tice. They are watching us, at tins elec
tion, to see what our own people think
of it; to see if the voters will maintain
their commendable attitude toward vice
and pernicious politics; to see if they
will indorse the course taken by the
present administration for better gov
ernment and capable officials; in other
words, to see if the people who instltut
ed tnis municipal administration as an
experiment for better government re-
I gret or approve their action.
"The corporations have put up two
candidates for the city councilt which
body of law makers will in the next
rouple. of years direct the disposition of
many miliions of dollars to be expend
ed in the development of our harbor,
water system, streets, highways and
power plants, and these corporations
are waging a desperate and decisive
battle to elect those candidates.
"The reform organization, o» the oth
er hand, has nominated two candidates
against them—Messrs. Stewart and
Whiften—whose election by the voters
will sustain the present administration
and indicate that the people desire, good
"It is to be the hardest battle the
corporations have ever* waged,

moral lesson at its election next Thurs
day Win of lose, it will be regarded
as a lesson for others to remember.
Apathy on the part of the Good Gov
ernment voters of this city will alone

Houghton are elected."
Mr. Eddie also urged that It Is of
personal and vital interest to each and
every voter to cast a ballot against the
corporation candidates and in favor of
Messrs Stewart and WhilTen, and in
favor of the lighting rate ordinance,
because if there aro enough of those
votes it will sustain the ordinance

residents of the Crown City in the

into the struggle In that city, and has
equipped himself with a vast amount

cost of producing electrical energy, the
expense of distributing It, the advan

promised, will effectually clinch the ar
guments In the interests of the people
of Los Angeles in their battle for lower

Mr. Wood will deal particularly with

R. G. Lamar Asks Colored Voters
to Support Stewart and Whiffen
An appeal to the negro voters of
Los Angeles to support Messrs. Stew
art and Whirten, the Good Government
candidates for the two vacancies in
the city council, was issued yesterday
by K. G. Lamar of 1413 Vt Lawrence
street, one of the best known colored
citizens of Los Angeles, who has al
ways taken an active interest In the
Good Government movement in this
city and done a great deal to unite
the people of his raco in the cause of
cleaner politics and municipal purity.
Mr. Lamar's appeal follows:
The Good Government officials
of our fair city have set a prece
dent that heretofore was unheard
of and they are to be compliment
ed by every good citizen. What
they have done will affect you as
a part and parcel of this city, and
now that there are two vacancies
to be filled for councilmen, and
ordinances to be sustained, passed
by the present council, they are
worthy and deserving of your sup
port, for indeed, we do need these
two councilmen.
If our fellow-brother could not
afford to give away their fran
chises through thn votes of Bar
ney Healy and Doc Houghton,
neither can you. If he can afford
to live and rear his family in a
good, clean city, under a good and
clean administration, so can you.
Awake yourselves to a sense of
duty; go to the polls and vote; de
mand the time of your employer;
for this is your only chance to
clear your country of the services
of your enemy. Vote for George
H. Stewart and Frederick J. Whif
The Rev. A. B. Prichard, pastor of
the Central Baptist church, scored
Darwinism and agnosticism as twin
fallacies and evils with a national In
fluence for bad at a large session of tho
Pacific Coast Christian Workers' con
ference at the Bible Institute yesterday.
Dr. Prichurd also spokr during the
Bible study hour. He compared pres
ent day conditions to conditions of
Bible times, speaking on the book of
Jude. He especially urged strict ob
servance of laws, denouncing bitterly
the evils of apostacy, agnosticism, nen
suality and lawltnnill.
At the afternoon session the Rev. W.
G Palmer discussed the subject,
"Handling the Masses," and D. E.
Luther, secretary of the Young Men's
Christian association, talked on tho
topic "The Advantages of Union Evan
gelistic Efforts." Lust nißht "The
Evangelistic Church" was the subject
of an address by the Hey. Lapaley A.

Gives His Reasons Why Voters
Should Support Whiffen
and Stewart
George H. Dunlop of Hollywood,
president of the Los Angeles Good
Government central organization, yes
terday issued a statement of reasons
why Frederick J. Whiff en and George
H. Stewart should be elected l>y the
people of Los Angeles to Mil the two
vacancies in the city council in pref
erenco to Barnoy Healy and "Doc"
Houghton. The three principal rea
sons cited by Mr. Dunlop are:
I—Hecause their character nnd
ability qualify them to be valuable
public officials.
2—Because Mayor Alexander and
tho present city council are giving
Los Angeles a successful non-par
tisan city government and deserve
an indorsement from the voters of
Los Angeles by having two council
men elected who are in sympathy
with the administration, rather
than two who are opposed to it.
3 —Because the present city ad
ministration Is energetically seek
ing to put into effect the plans of
the citizens of Los Angeles for the
development of a municipal electric
plant as a part of tho: Owens river
enterprise, and for the development
of a great municipal harbor at San
Pedro. In its effort to accomplish
these two great enterprises the city
administration is being opposed by
a combination of private interests
heretofore often dominant in our
local politics, but not so with our
present city administration. The
Southern Pacific railroad and the
electric companies of this city of
themselves form a powerful local
combination, but they have influen
tial allies all across the continent
and in the money center of New
York city. In the eyes of these
allied Interests any municipal own
ership of public utilities .should be
discouraged, but successful muni
cipal ownership, v.ith all the bril
liant prospects possessed by these
two great enterprises of Los An
geles, must be defeated at all haz
ards. Therefore every effort is
being made to discredit Mayor
Alexander's administration. Its
small mistakes are exaggerated
and its great successes minimized.
We of Los Angeles, however, un
derstand the situation as it is and
will stand by our municipal enter
prises. We will not vote to place
in the council two men who had so
little appreciation of the future of
Los Angeles that they voted to give
away the river bed franchise, and
to whose business Judgment we
would not trust our private affairs,
but will vote for Messrs. Stewart
and Whiffen, whose business judg
ment takes equal rank with their
personal honesty.
