CHARGE VIOLATION OF LIGHTING RATE Corporation Collectors Accused of Receiving Money Under Repealed Ordinance TEST OF LAW INTIMATED Company Head Asserts That if Information Is True, Acts Are Due to Mistake Several complaints Of overcharging 1 by collectors of the Edison Electric company and the Pacific Light and Power company were received by City Prosecutor Guy Eddie yesterday, in ■which it was charged the men were collecting on the basis of 9 cents a kilowatt hour instead of 7 cents, as is provided In the new ordinance. Complaints charging an employe of each company with violating the light rate ordinance, which was ]>ut into effect July 1, were issued shortly be fore 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon. S. C. Habcr, collector for the Edison Electric company, Is charged In the complaint with collecting accounts of customers at a 9-cent a kilowatt hour rate. F. B. Goodrich, collector for the Pacific Light and Power company, is accused of charging customers of the company for the recarbonizing of, in candescent lamps, which is In violation of the ordinance. Warren D. Wood, head of the con tract department of the Edison Elec tric company, when asked concerning reports received by Prosecutor Eddie, stated that "he didn't know anything about it." J. Homer Sampson, acting chief col lector of the Pacific Light and Power company, was more willing to talk of the matter than Wood. He explained that "If anything of that kind has occurred, it is through the mistake of the collectors. The new rate of seven cents did not go into effect until the first of July," he said, "and we have had considerable confusion in making out the new bills. Or perhaps the cus tomers have become confused by an old bill under the old rate and the new rate which did not become effective until July," ho continued. It is understood that the power com panies will make test cases of the two charges which have been preferred against their respective employes. The Pacific Light and Power company- will attack the part of the ordinance re lating to _. the charge being made to customers for the recarbonizlng of in candescent lamps, and the Edison com pany will attack the reduction in the rate.

The program is diversified in such a manner as to make the offering as a whole real vau deville. The offering of the Monitl opera com pany is pleasing and attractive. "The Mardi Gras In Paris" 13 a tabloid opera. A slender plot is used as a basis for introducing selections from various grand operas, such as "Pag llacci," "Love Tales of Hoffman," "Lucia" and others. The interpolations are made cleverly and In a way that tells a complete story. Captain Gru ber's animal act Is one of those which cause every audience to wonder if Dar win were not right after all. A trained elephant of enormous size, a beautiful horse and a tiny pony do various ! stunts which must have been learned j only after years of training. This act i is the one big novelty, although Loie Fuller's "Ballet of Light" is extremely unusual and in a class by itself. The ballet Is a combination of graceful young women and electrical effects. Will Cressy and Blanche Dayne fur nish numerous laughs with their sketch, "Grasping an Opportunity." Holding over on the bill are the Five Olympiers In plastic poses, White and Simmons, black-face comedians; An nabelle Whitford in unique songs, and De Lion, billiard ball manipulator. ... "Billy," the enjoyable farce-comedy, was presented for the second week of its run last night at the Belasco thea ter. A capacity house enjoyed the per formance. ... Seemingly apropos of the present po litical chaos over the gubernatorial election is "Running for Council," the musical playlet at the Princess this week. "Running for Council" is full of musical specialties. Fred Ardath is one of the hits of th" show in his role of the Irish saloon keeper running for alderman, while Earl Hall as the.Ger man barkeeper, who also aspires to political honors, gets away with his share of comedy. The two are also rivals in love for the hand of a rich widow, and complii atlngly humorous love scenes result. Geraldine Woods plays the widow's part, while Bessie Hill and George Spalding are pleasing ly cast as the barkeeper's son and daughter. Frank Bronson made his debut with the company as a tramp. Lillian Hoffman is featured in "Yaki ana Rag" and. Mabelle la Yore in "The Dublin Rag." The "splash me" girl returned to Bristol pier cafe this week. When that young miss ran away from the out-at sea hostelry two weeks ago to be mar ried to Lonnie Garwood she declared that stage life was no more for her. Sunday she reappeared upon the stage of the Bristol pier cafe clad In the al luring bathing suit which assisted in making her a footllght favorite and again sang her "splash me" Hong to the delight of the guests gathered there. The former Frances White added sev eral new songs and costumes to her act, each appearance being greeted en thusiastically. Swan Wood, the dancer of national fame, was one of the big features of the free vaudeville bill also. Her rope dance and Hawaiian presentation proved as winning as any previous numbers. Miss Phillips, hailed as "the new Carmen," proved to be more alluring than ever in her society costumes and operatic compositions. "Happy" Van .Men Bang several new popular songs, delighting the big au dience while the Instrumental soloists on the bill were received enthusiastical ly The bill will run the entire week. What is said to be the best bill that Sullivan & Considine have offered in many a week opened yesterday at the Los Angeles theater, headed by Tim McMahon's "Watermelon Girls" In their miniature musical comedy en title,!

This is a Fran ciscan feast that obtains its name from the Portluncula, or Little Church at Assist where St. Francis established the Franciscan order and where he re ceived the bestowal of the Indulgence, which has become known by that name. Local interest is added to the feast, as it was on August 1 that the river, now known as the Los Angeles, was discovered and called the Portluncula, by which name It was known until the coming of the Americans who, unable to master the pictureque name be stowed by the Franciscan padres, re named it. The city itself received its name from the Church of Our Lady of Angels at Assist, where St. Francis conducted his work.

A. Whiting, representing the os teopaths, recently requested the board to permit him to appoint an osteopath to treat a patient in tho county hos pital. The treatment was to be free of charge to the county but it would give the osteopathic college recogni tion. The board tabled the matter un til yesterday when lengthy protests against the admission of osteopaths to the county hospital were made by Dr. a. S. Lobingier, representing the Los Angeles County Medical associa tion, and by Dr. George H. Kress, representing the hospital medical staff. Dr. Grace Wyekoff was the only osteopath at the hearing. * Dr. Kress, the representative of the hospital staff, held the board's close attention as he read page after page of a lengthy protest. The staff's con tention is that if the osteopaths were allowed to practice in the county Insti tution it would, virtually be giving the hospital into the control of a minority of the medical profession: that the physical welfare and comfort of citi zens who are ill and injured, and for whom the county hospital primarily exists, would not be bettered but would bo made worse, and that If the osteopaths were recognized the result would be that the great mass of the educated profession in this city would be antagonistic to the hospital and its methods, and further, that the great mass of the citizens would share these prejudices. Dr. Grace Wyekoff only spoke once and this was to inform the board that she had done a good deal of charity work, contrary to the statement of Dr. Kress that very little charity work was done by the osteopaths. Follow ing this short statement by the osteo path, Dr. C. H. Whitman, superinten dent of the county hospital, Informed the board that the woman who had first asked for osteopathic treatment in the county hospital, had place, herself under the charge of an osteopath and is now paying 512 per week for treat ment. . , ,_,'_» After Dr. Lohingior had registered the protest of the Los Angeles County Medical association. Chairman Nellis of the board said: "A while ago I went on record gainst the osteopaths and I still stand the same way. I'm for the allo paths." Supervisor Eldridge then said: "I move you this whole thing be eliminated. Let the medical fraternity take care of the county hospital as It has done for the past twenty-five years. When the osteopaths make a showing, then let them in the gates." After a short discussion, the hoard took the matter under advisement. BARACA MEMBERS HONOR NEW OFFICERS IN UNION The Rev. Jeffe W.
