LESS CONGESTION OF CAR TRAFFIC Broadway Blockade Not So Great as Monday Night, but Cars Still Are Delayed HURRYING JOB, SAYS KUHRTS Howard Huntington Says Co. Is Donig the Best It Can Under Circumstances Broadway's street car blockade was less extensive last evening and the complaints of travelers less numerous ln consequence. The Los Angeles Rail way company puts the blame lor the delay on the city, which recently or dered the removal of the third rail in Seventh street. City officials, however, do not hesitate to assert that the com pany has not expedited the work as much as It might, because it seeks to bring odium on the present municipal administration. However that may be, it was evident last night that cars -were being moved much more rapidly than the preceding evening, when for a time all south bound cars on Broadway were stalled and the line of waiting cars extended from Seventh street to Second. A dis patcher stationed at the scene helped to get the cars through quickly. MITCH CRITICISM There was much criticism of the com pany yesterday because it did not put on a big night force, take up the rail and repave the street quickly. Today it is probable that there will be a con ference between city officials and mem bers of the company's engineering force lor the purpose of discussing ways anil means to do the work quickly. Prior to this conference city officials declined to talk. So far as could bo learned yesterday only a few men were at work ln the street at one time, and they were scat tered over a distance of three blocks. It was the opinion of those who think the company has been letting the work lag that many more men could have been utilized. WHAT KCTIKTS BATS Chief Engineer Kuhrts of the Los Angeles railway said last night: "Wo are not trying to hold up the work. Mr. Huntlngton's orders are to deliver material as rapidly as possible and to push the work. It has been claimed that we are not working enough men on tho street. I would be able to put 300 men on the street in an hour's notice if there was anything they could do. "As It is, we have only three hours at night ln which we can deliver material, and the contractors outside the city hold back on that. There are as many men at work as there is rock tor them to handle. "During the day we cannot deliver trains of material in Seventh street, as we have only one track as it Is, and that must be kept open for the traffic of regular cars. Even that Is slow business, when we have two cars a minute over that line all day and more than that number during rush hours. "I will have the paving eet within two days, and after that It will have to stand nine days to harden before the asphalt capping can be put on. As soon as that is in place the cars can run again on the new track. Then we will take up the second track." HUH'imOTOWI BTATKSEENX General Manager Howard Hunting ton said: "I have Issued orders to handla the work as rapidly as possible. It Is a question of material and the ability to deliver it during the rush hours that bothers us. Seventh street Is the first cross-town thoroughfare and has heavy automobile and team traffic. Other streets are Jammed with traffic, and it is Impossible to reroute cars. I have gone into the situation thoroughly. "There are questions coining up which make it necessary for us to have the good will of the people, even if that were not my father's policy at all times. We are doing tho best we can, and if anyone can show us how we can relieve the congestion I should be glad to go into the question at any time." UNION PICKETS WEARING DISTINCTIVE BADGES The leaders of the striking union metal workers have Issued orders to the members doing picket duty to wear a distinctive badge showing the nature of their business. This order was is sued to easily identify pickets in case trouble should arise in the Vicinity of the boycotted plants. The striking brewery workers havo donned bright red badges bearing the word "Flcket." The strikers are still confident of winning out and are awaiting the ar rival of tents which they are goinng to erect in their proposed camp at Edendale.

COUNTY ACCEPTS PRENDERGAST BID Highway Commission Will Begin Work on Part of Long Beach Boulevard GEO. VANSYCLE COMPLAINS Writes Supervisors Second Lettei Asking Reasons for Delay in Harbor Roads Tim highway commission will under take the construction of a short stretch of Long Beach boulevard between the city limits of Long Beach and Willows. F. F. Prenderffast submitted a bid for the work, and on the bid being opened by the board of supervisors yesterday the highway commission reported that it was $839 In excess of the engineer's estimate. The bid of Prendergast was $5875, The highway commission thrn informed the board that the work would be done by it. Contractor Prenciergnst also was the only bidder on the work to be done on Compton avenue between Compton and "Watts. For this work he asked $12,372, this bid being $3<lo in excess of the county engineer's figures, but the highway commission recommended that It be accepted, and the board acted accordingly. The board of supervisors yesterday received a second letter from Geonse Vansyckle, In which the writer asks t<> be informed concerning the delay ln constructing the boulevard to the har bor cities. The letter is as follows: "Gentlemen—ln reply to my inquiry and complaint of 28th ult., regarding the very lengthy and unnecessary de lay in the paving of the Harbor boule vard, I wish to say that the excuses given therein by the highway commis sion are not at all satisfactory and es pecially »hen they state that this pav ing is not expected to be done before next Bummer, 1911, one year from this time. "This Information was, to say the least, astounding, as no one had at all believed but that the paving would be actually completed the present sum mer. The property owners along this boulevard and the harbor Interests, as well as Los Angeles city proper, de mand that the paving of this road be pushed through to completion as rap idly as possible, without nny further unnecessary delay. At least four fifths of this roaod Is now ready for paving, allowing for the several short fills recently made to settle during the coming winter rains. "Of the three present roads to 'Wil mington, San Pedro and Long Beach, there is not one of them but that Is a disgrace to the community, and this most central and shortest route to all three harbor cities should not be fur ther delayed through what appears to the writer as unseen, unknown, cer- talnly unnecessary Influence. "Other roads, in every direction throughout the county, are being paved, some of them miles away from a paved connection with Los Angeles, yet this most urgently needed . and shortest route to tho harbor, for both commercial and pleasure traffic, through a heavily populated section, Is being put off from month to month and year to year, instead of being rushed through to completion at the earliest possible moment. "Now, gentlemen, the excuses of the highway commission are not at all sufficient to satisfy the property own ers and taxpayers of the harbor boule vard district, and we trust that this road will be no further delayed, but will be completely paved, with the ex ception of the few recent Ehort fills, this present summer." BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO BUY STEAM ROLLERS Acting on the request of the highway commission, the board of supervisors yestetrday authorized the offering of bids for the purchase of two steam rollers for county road work. A. E. Loder, chief engineer of the highway commission, informed the board that the rollers were needed in order to take over the work of con tractors If they do not show the proper amount of speed while doing county work. Several contractors have made com plaint that heretofore when adver tising for roller bids the specifications have been drawn In such a manner that they would only fit one make of machine, thus barring many bidders. Kngineer Loder assured the board that the specifications for the two rollers will apply to many makes of machines. The bids will be opened In two weeks. RETURN FROM VACATION Betective J. C. Chapman and his wife, who have been passing the last two weeks at Murrieta Hot Springs, returned to Los Angeles yesterday. The entire time they wore absent was passed in fishing, horseback riding and long tramps through the mountains. Mrs. Chapman, who had an attack of rheumatism before the trip, is wholly recovered from the ailment and is in perfect health. Mr. Chapman resumed his duties in the detectives' office yes terday.

The train, it is said, was making forty miles an hour. The engine rolled down the bank, crushing its crew to death while two cars were upset and splin tered. Three sleeping cars were de railed, but not damaged and threo were left on the rails. The dead: ENGINEER L. A. DIXON. FIREMAN ERNEST ALGER. Seriously injured: Mrs. Charles Lamont. William Nesbitt of Oakland, assist ant chief engineer, internally hurt. R. McGhee, dining car porter, arm broken and internally hurt. The slightly injured are Mrs. M. B. Nichols, Ann Arbor, Mich., body bruised; Mrs. H. B. Barnhard, Indian apolis, back sprained, feet Injured; Miss Louise Mushopf, Beach City, 0., scalded; Conductor James Metz, San Francisco, arm crushed; William Miles, Oakland, dining car chef, arm broken; B. McCleary, brakeman, Ban Francisco, hand cut; A. 10. Peterson, dining ear conductor, San Francisco, hand cut. The accident occurred shortly after 5 o'clock in the morning and few of the passengers In the sleeping ears hud left their berths. The four in jured women were In a capsized tour -1 t sleeper, but none of the passenger! In the standard coaches suffered any Injuries. None of the injured will die as a result of their injuries, it was stated by railroad officials tonight. Both the Injured and unhurt passengers arrived here on v special train early tonight. A few hours latar a regular train brought the body of Engineer Dixon of San Francisco, which was recovered this afternoon, and the Injured mem bers of the crew. The body of Fire man Edward Ernest of San Francisco was recovered late tonight, but' it is still at Metz. Three members of the train crew, William Miles and Charles Williams, both of Oakland, and Robert McGhee of San Francisco, were taken to the company hospital here. Conductor W. H. Metz, who was thought to have b«en seriously injured, went to San Jose, and it is now said his condition is not serious. The injured passengers were removed to a local hotel in automobiles. All but one, Miss Laura Muskeph of Beach City, 0., were able to walk to the conveyances. Passengers said little excitement at tended the wreck. Farmers and cow boys from ranches in the vicinity of Metz brought food to the train and none suffered from hunger. HE'S ONLY A PUPPY, SAYS OWNER OF COWISH DOG F. B. Colby pleaded Ignorance of the law in defeflse to a charge of allowing a dog to roam about the neighborhood without a muzzle, in Police Jud^e Fredcrickson's court yesterday, Al though the dog stands about two feet high and Is full grown, Colby declared that the dog Is only a puppy and not quite six months old. "Judge, I thought the ordinance did not require a muzzle to be put on dogs under six months old," said the de fendant. "He's got teeth, hasn't he?" queried the judge. "Y-c-h," said the defendant, meekly. "Can he light?"-asked the court. "Oh-on my, no-ou," quickly respond ed Colby. "Three dollars or three days," com manded the court. Colby chose tho cash fine. 'I SHOT HIM; HIM' NO GOOD,' SAYS CHEROKEE CINCINNATI. Ohio, July 12.—Ex cept that he is a Cherokee and that he came to Cincinnati with a "Mexican" show, which disbanded here, the local in,lice are unable to identify an Indian who today was held on a charge of murdering John Donovan, a negro. "I Bhot him. Him no good," was the Indian's explanation of the affair. Questioned as to his identity and his home lip p't'iised to answer, except to say ho was a "government man." When th« case was called in police court the Indian was muto. A hearing was scheduled fo* July 16. W. C. T. U. Department i The first world' 3 convention of the Woman's Christian Temperance union ' met in Faneuil hall, Boston, Mass., No vember 11, 1891. From the world over came delegates to that great confer ence. Frances Willard sat upon the 1 historic platform surrounded by those grand women who had responded to her summons, crossing oceans and con tinents to confer with the ■woman whose farseeing vision and indomltablo spirit had planned and outlined the great work there inaugurated. Lady Henry Somerset of Great Britan, pres ident of the British Women's Temper ance association, led the devotions and made an address of great power, which was followed by a presentation of declaration of principles by Miss Willard. Since that time biennial conventions have been held in Chicago in 1893 Lon don, England, 1895; Toronto, Canada, 1897; Kdlnburgh, Scotland, 1900; Ge neva, Switzerjand, 1903; Boston, Mass., 1906. ** The eighth world's convention was held last month in Glasgow, Scotland. The officers elected were: The countess of Carlisle, England, president; Mrs. L. M. N. Stevens, United States, vice president at large; Miss Agnes Slack, Kngland, and Miss Anna A. Gordon, United States, honorary secretaries;; Mrs. Mary E. Anderson, Canada, treas urer. The queen mother, Alexandra, sent a telegram to the convention ex pressing her sympathy with the move ment. It was the largest and most repre sentative convocation of the world's W. C. T. U. ever held. Delegates were there from widely severed points of the world's great map. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Eng land, Japan, Sweden, Belgium, Ger many, Canada and the United States all sent prominent white ribbon leaders and speakers. A reception was given to delegates and visitors by the lord provost of Glasgow. The following descriptive sketch of Glasgow and places of interest visit ed by delegates during the convention Is taken from the Union Signal, the national official organ of the W. C. T. U.: "Glasgow, the convention city, is the second city in Great Britain, with a population of 750,000. Its first impres sion Is one of extreme utilitarianism. Tall factory chimneys smoke In every landscape. In coming up the Clyde to the pir-r seventy-three v si Is on the stocks arc to be counted, now building, among them the largest Dreadnaught JULIA A. GARRISON in the world. The streets are In the main narrow, with many angles and irregular courts, traversed by a won derful system of electric tramways at an average fare of 2 cents a mile for the passenger. The residence districts show great uniformity of architecture, nninumrntal stone houses of two stor ies, but with the greenest of grass plats an gayest of kowofl shrdlupu plats and gayest of flower beds in front. Open squares contain magnificent public buildings and large parks are frequent, while the harbor or Broomie law gives the pleasing variety of water with men and steamers ewarmlng like ants over it. Ten miles on* the spurs of the Scottish highlands are visible standing guard over this city of stone —not a wood building or a street of native soil in all its vast expanse. The tradition goes that about the middle of the third century a Chris tian missionary, St. Ninlan, estab lished himself in a cell at Glasgow. The next record comes with the patron saint, Kentigern, besi known as Mun gO, who began missionary work here about the middle of the sixth century, erecting a church on the Bite of the present cathedral, where he was bur ied in 603. The existing cathedral was built 800 years ago; it is one of the two which escaped destruction during the Reformation, the other being in the Orkney isles. The style Is early Eng lish. Sir Walter Scott, by the mouth of young Osbaldlstone, sayn of it: "The pile is gloomy and massiv? rather than an elegant style of Gothic architecture, but Its peculiar character is so well preserved that th 3 impression of the lirst view was awful and solemn in the extreme." In its beautiful and famous crypt Scott placed one of the notable scenes of "Rob Roy." Today this ven erable cathedral is the possession of the Established (Presbyterian) Church of Scotland, where a special seivipe for the world's W. C. T. U. was held on Sunday afternoon in charge of Rev. Hector McKlnnon. Its grand interior attracted members of the convention for the morning hour, the wonderful music from Its famous choir (organ loft) and the Christly sermon of its pastor, Dr. Mulr, urging Christians of all creeds to forget the points on which they differed and to remember only those upon which they agreed, in such a setting make an unforgettable oc casion, especially as some there had for the first time the opportunity to sit at the Lord's table in the church of their Covenantor fathers. An excursion to the cathedral, fol lowed by a garden tea, was one of the privileges' of the convention during the week. The elevation on which the cathedral Is located Is connected by the "Bridge of Sighs" with the Necropolis, from time immemorial the burial place of the dead. It is on a conical hill 300 feet high, surmounted by a tall col umn bearing the statue of John Knox, all its slopes and terraces being cov ered with monuments and reclined slabs —some of them 1200 yearn old. The university, second in seniority of the Scottish universities, estab lished in 1460; the splendid building of the art gallery and museum; the spacious municipal buildings of which Glasgow is so Justly proud; the roytri botanic gardens, were daily Bought by the delegates In excursion parties, con ducted by the hospitable Scots. In the midst of this historic setting the eighth world's W. C. T. U. con vention assembled on June 7 at 10 a. m. in John's Street United Free Pres byterian church, which afforded large space for committee rooms, postofflce and literature tables. The floor of the church was well filled by dele gates, seated according to nationality, visitors occupying the galleries. Flags of all nations, suspended before the galleries, made brilliant with color the dark interior, toned by the ages. June 4 a monster children'! demon stration was held In the fine city hall, the second auditorium for size In Glas gow, seating 6000 adults. Its space is most impressive; Its organ said to be the largest in the world. The vast body of the hall was filled with chil dren; 250 marvelously trained as a choir led the singing from the plat form. No stronger intimation of the majestic and conquering step of a world's procession to come in the white ribbon cause could have been made than in this demonstration by the children. It kindled one's faith and tired one's zeal to white heat. Brief addresses were made by Miss Anna Gordon, U. S. A., who was en thusiastically received, and by Dr. Mackenzie of Cape Colony, Africa. Mrs. Wilbur Crafts of Washington, U. 8. A., a recent delegate at the World's Sun day school convention in that city, and superintendent of that department In the world's W. C. T. U., reported most effectively with the flags of all na tions in her hands, giving the number of Sunday school children under tem perance teaching as amounting to 57,000,000; of these 25,230,000 are in the United States." Why should not Los Angeles have the next world's convention in 1912? FRENCH BARK IN DISTRESS MONTEVIDEO, July 12.—The- French bark Bayard, which nailed from Glas gow April 7 for Portland, Ore., was spokfn the 10th near Montevideo In latitude 34 south, longitude 52 west, in distress. Tugs have been sent in tfearch of her. '
