WAGE FIGHT TO GET AERO MEET FOR LOS ANGELES The Aero Club of California, under auspices of the Merchants and Manufacturers' association, is making an effort to have the midwinter avia tion meet held in Los Angeles, but unless a change can be made it will be held in Pasadena. Early efforts were made by the Aero club to have the meet in Los Angeles next January. The club sent 144 let ters to prominent aviators throughout France, Kngland, Australia, Canada and America, asking their views re garding events, amounts and distribu tions of prizes, the intention being to meet in Los Angeles. Word was received, however, from the Aero Club of America, New York, that Pasadena had won the meet. The Aero club feels that the 300,000 of Los Angeles should win the meet for this city instead of ior the Crown of the Valley, which has 30,000 inhab itants. The Aero club proposes to exert ev eryl effort to persuade the national club to change the meet to Los Angeles. CONGRESSMAN GRAHAM REPLIES TO CRITICISMS SPRINGFIELD, 111., Sept. 14.—Con gressman James M. Graham, Demo cratic member of the Ballinger-Pinchot investigating committee, today replied to the criticisms, voiced by the Re publican members ot the committee in Chicago. Congressman Graham says: "The reports of Mr. Madison and the Demo crats were on tile and in the posses sion of the Republican members for four days, giving ample time for pointing- out any error or defects that might be in them. Instead of .seizing the opportunity and giving the public their views, they content themselves by calling names, which little indulgence really hurts nobody and possibly re lieves them somewhat. "If Mr. Ballinger is innocent and has been unjustly assailed, how utterly cruel and Inhuman it is to withhold his vindication. On the other hand, If he has been an unfaithful public servant, can it be wrong to let the public know about it?" • » » Footpad—Your watch, mister, and be quick about it. Pedestrian — me pass.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 15, 1910. 400 ALHAMBRANS OPPOSE CONTRACT Citizens' Meeting Names Com mittee to Take Steps to Se cure Municipal Plant About 400 taxpayers of Alhambra held a mass meeting in the Alhambra high school building last evening, and after a lengthy discussion concerning the action of tne Alhambra board of trustees In signing a contract with the Pacific Light and Power company for furnishing Alhambra with light for the next five years, decided to keep I up the fight for a municipal lighting I fnt, and to that end authorized P. | Anderson, chairman of the meeting, | appoint five citizens as a commit- I to take preliminary steps toward securing a charter for Alhambra, mak- ; Ing it a city of the fifth class. At present Alhambra, being a sixth class city, cannot own its own plant. About three weeks ago the board or trustees and the electric company of ficials held a conference, at which time the matter of Alhambra having Its own distributing station was dis cussed. According to R. M. Wallace, president of the board of trustees, the officials of the power company signed a contract to- furnish electric power to the proposed municipal distributing station at a rate of 3 cents per kilo watt. For some reason the power com pany withdrew Its agreement and then the trustees attempted to get a prom ise of light from other electric com panies, but their efforts were fruit less. WALIACE OUSTKD Despite the protests of hundreds of taxpayers and of K. M. Wallace, presi dent of the board of trustees, the ma- I Jority of the trustees temporarily de posed Wallace from the chairmanship, placed another member in the chair and authorized him to enter into a contract with the Pacific Light and Power company to furnish the city of Alhambra with current for the next five years for an average of 400 lights ! which are to burn on an all night i schedule. The amount named in the contract which the company will re ceive from the city Is $38,535. Ever since the signing of this con tract Alhambra has been up in arms. , The first mass meeting was held Wednesday, September 7, and at that time a committee consisting of P. T. Anderson, T. W. Forbes, W. C. B. Jaynes, C. W. Bardlck and Dr. B. Reed was appointed to ascertain what further action would be taken to nul lify the contract entered into by the trustees and the power company. At last night's meeting the committee handed In the following report: COMMITTEE'S REPORT "As members of the committee we desire to say. that inasmuch as the board of trustees, in their legal and official capacity, have entered into a contract with the Pacific Light and Power company for a period of five years for lighting the streets of Al hambra, we feel that as members of said committee our duties are at an end, and we would recommend, as members of said committee, that all further discussion and agitation over the matter be dispensed with for the present. "We also, as members of said com mittee, desire to express our full con fidence in the members of the board of trustees who voted to approve of the contract, believing, as we do, that they acted as they thought best for the community." When this report was read there was a general sentiment against heeding the advice of the committee, and on the question being put to a vote the majority of those present decided that the fight for a municipal lighting plant should be continued. The chairman was then authorized to appoint a com mittee to take preliminary steps to ward getting a charter for Alhambra. W. M. Northrup, vice president of the Alhambra Home Telephone com pany, caused a mild though expected sensation at the meeting when he arose and, holding on high one of thousands of circulars that had been thrown around Alhambra, he informed the assemblage that his character had been attacked in the circular. The circulars were signed "Taxpayers," and the article which Mr. Northrup resented was as follows: "Do you know that the manager and the vice president of the Home Tele phone company are leading the fight for a municipal plant and that they want to rent the use of the Home Tele phone company's poles for street light ing? "Do you know this would give a splendid opportunity for graft?" NORTHRUP MAKES DENIAL Mr. Northrup then said: "The man that wrote and had printed these circulars In which my character has been attacked is not fit to be in de cent society, and I challenge him to make himself known. I want the man who wrote this to stand up. Why, the thief that enters your house Is more of a man than the author of this circu lar." E. O. Fawcett, manager of the tele phone company, also resented the graft insinuation and requested the writer to make himself known and then "settle it, like a man." Nobody admitted hav ing- been connected with the composi tion or. printing of the circulars. The assemblage cheered both Mr. Northrup anifllr, Fawcett, and denounced the unknown author of the circulars. W. F. Haas, city attorney of Alham bra, was one of the first speakers and he attempted to point out that the trustees had no other alternative than to sign the contract with the power company or let Alhambra remain dark until it secured a municipal plant, •which would be in two or possibly three years. WALLACE TALKS Mr. Northrup replied to the speech made by the city attorney and received applause. R. M. Wallace was next called upon and the audience gave him a prolonged ovation as he stepped for ward. When President Wallace con cluded City Attorney Haas requested permission of the chair to again speak a few words. The people hissed him and yelled for him to be seated, but he faced them and when quiet was re stored the city attorney made a brief address and was given cheer upon cheer by '.he same crowd that had loudly hissed him but a few minutes previously. The committee then reported that If Alhambra had a municipal plant the city could light Its streets for five years at a cost of $31,260, and at the same time pay off half the indebted ness on the plant. There were many speakers, and when the meeting adjourned at a late hour women as well as men avowed that If It was possible to nullify the contract with the power company they would go without electric lights until a municipal plant was secured, for they felt that the power company had forced the Issue. No woman is quite sure what things are stored away on the top shelf of the closet In the spare bedroom upstairs.
