OFFICIAL TRUCES HERZIG OFFENSES Postoffice Inspector O'Connell, Who Caused Arrest for Frauds, Is in City CLOUDY RACING OPERATIONS Final Activities of Man Accused by Government Affected Nat Goodwin Mines Simon Herzig, alias George Graham Rice, arrested In New York, charged with using the United States maiU to defraud in connection with the & F. Scheftels company, of which firm he Is supposed to be the head, is a clever criminal, according to Postofflce In spector James O'Connell of San Fran cisco, who furnished the New York federal authorities with most of the in fomation and evidence winch led to Herzlg's capture. Mr. O'Connell is in Los Angeles in connection with his regular duties with the postofflce department. According to his story, Herzig, or Rice, as he is better known, is a bright, capable, well educated man—one who can easily make his fortune by honest business methods. Mr. O'Connell stated last evening that the beginning of the deal which has resulted in the man s ar irest was probßbly the first legitimate business operation he engaged in in his life, and that even in this, when ho thought that he could make a fortune ho could not resist the temptation to be dishonest. FRAUD ORDER IN SOITH Herzlg's first conflict with the federal authorities occurred in New Orleans, where he was operating a horse-tip ping bureau known as the Mexin-Gay company. A fraud order was issued against him there by the postoffice de partment and his company was driven out of business. He next appeared in San Francisco, running a turf-tipping bureau, and it was there that he first came under the eurveillance of Mr. O'Connell. He went by the name of Jack Hornaday. A cleanup was made by him in the bay cities, and nlso in Los Angeles, where he at fhe same time conducted a similar bureau under the alias of Bud Ham mell. Fraud orders issued against him In both places at the instigation of Mr. O'Connell resulted in his being driven out of the two cities. Following his expulsion from Los An geles Herzig went to Reno, and then to Ooldfleld. He began a brokerage business and later bought out the Larry G. Sullivan company, making a Bmall fortune by Belling mining stocks. OPERATIONS IN CHICAGO After his Nevada experience, accord ing to Mr. O'Connell, who during all this time had been keeping track of the operator, Herzig went to Chicago, where the B. F. Scheftels company was formed. He was its head, under the name of George Graham Rice. The new company soon moved to New York and was doing a small business, but Herzig, not satisfied, sent one of his chief lieutenants out to Ely to investi gate conditions there. This lieutenant discovered the Ely Central property, a valuable piece of land owned in San Francisco. It lies adjacent to the Ne vada Consolidated holdings. The in vestigator reported back to Herzig, who went to look at the property himself, and being satisfied negotiated for it with the owners, who sold out to him. DISTURBS CURB BROKERS "I believe that Herzig saw In this property a chance to become rich legit imately," said Mr. O'Connell last even ing at the Lankershim. "At hast it was the first time to my positive knowledge that he ever engaged in an honest business proposition." Herzig bought the stock in the Ely Central, took it to New York and put in on the curb. He advertised extensively in the New York papers. He kept the price of the stock up and Incurred the en mity of the other curb brokers, who began fighting him. He came under, the ban of the postoffice authorities by securing mailing lists from the Nat C. Goodwin company and the L. M. Sulli van Trust company and sending his publication through the mails. From the record looked up by Mr. O'Connell, Herzig is alleged to have served a term in the Elmira, N. V., reformatory when a boy. Later he served a sentence in Sing Sing for for- gery. Whether he can be convicted on tho evidence secured, Mr. O'Connell refused to state last evening. He did state, however, that In all probability he KO'Connell) would go to New York to testify against him. Y. M. C. A.

Olive Jordon, Who Will Pass the Winter in Southern California IW \ ' ' -* "**■ 'jM ■P ■■■ "^■ks^ i / y* *m X? ji - ' ! —-■ ' M Eg ■|yHK^!y| i> h M$ bblbl MJ *4* &*£%.%jM mm / , ..• ./M a# W. C. T. U. Department It is the aim of the legal department of the Woman's Christian Temperance union to bring its influence to bear on legislative bodies for the enactment of just laws and the repeal of unjust ones; to secure a constitutional amend ment for the prohibition of the liquor traffic; to secure such legislation as will prohibit the white slave traffic and effectually stamp out the hideous crime which is a deadly menace to all young womankind.. Many of the unions in country places and small towns have no legal depart ments, but it is important that every W. C. T. U. woman should be familiar with the laws of the state relating to herself and children and be prepared at any time to use her Influence for the protection of her home and loved ones. The pitfalls of destruction are found in the most remote corners as well as in the cities, and no mother knows how soon the boy or girl she has reared so lovingly and tenderly may be the next victim. The element of mother love in government Is the only hope of safety for the girls and boys from the dangers which beset them. In the Progressive Woman are a few California laws compiled by Alice Park and declared correct, which are here given for the thoughtful consideration of The Herald readers: A woman may make any legal con tract a man may make. The courts have decided she is a person and a citizen, though not a voter. A woman who is unmarried suffers no injustice as to property rights. She may hold property, engage in busi ness and will property as freely as a man. An unmarried woman has the same right that a man has, married or un married, of relinquishing citizenship in the country of her birth or of her one legal parent, and enrolling as a citizen in the country of her choice. Marriage gives to a woman the cit izenship of her husband. An Amer ican girl who marries a Frenchman becomes a foreigner. Marriage has no effect upon a man s citizenship. He is counted as a sepa rate individual always. She is not so counted. Charlotte Perkins Gilman calls her a "subcitizen." Marriage takes away even a wom an's name. This is a distinct loss. If a man lost his name by marriage he would be able to sco his loss. Prece dent has blinded both men and women on this point. A wife may hold separate property. All that she had before marriage (pro vided care Is taken to separate it in the beginning and keep it separate) ah that she may receive as gift or inher itance, is separate property. This may be kept in her name alone and is whol ly under her control. A husband may hold separate property under similar conditions. A homestead may be declared by either husband or wife, its value be ing limited to $5000. The furniture of the home and the clothing of the wife and children are community property, but may not ho sold without the con sent of the wife. Joint property is that owned In part nership, i All earnings of husband and wife are community property. If this were ro nlly held in common it would belong to both partners. But community prop erty is under control of the husband alone. Calling it community or com mon, is small comfort, as the husband control! it just as long as he may live. The only restrictions placed upon the husband are that he shall not give such property away ami cannot will it all away. He can will away half of it. But the wife cannot will away the othi-r half. The half he cannot will away she can have If she outlives him. If she dies first she loses the shadow of title she had alive. While he lives she cannot control a dollar of com munity property, even though it is a dollar "she earned. If she dies first she cannot will any part of community property to anybody. Tier death re moves all restrictions and gives it all to him absolutely. It is a matter of common knowledge that the wife is required to sign deeds when the husband sells property. Many people wrongly believe that this sig nature is necessary, and that it im plies n degree of control by the wife, even a half interest in the property. These conclusions nre false. If she did not sien the deed there would be a possibility of a suit over the title, in order to prove that the property was sold for a valuable con glderation, the only conveyance the husband is forbidden to make. To prevent a possible suit with cost and delay, the lawyer and buyer require the wife's signature. Rut the action is only a precaution. Wives have tried JULIA A. GARRISON in vain to recoVer a share in com munity property sold without their knowledge. These are facts, even though people often refuse to believe them. A husband is bound to support his wife. A wife is bound to support her husband when he cannot support him self. Her separate property is liable for certain community debts. Divorce may be granted for any of the following causes: Adultery, ex treme cruelty, willful desertion, will ful neglect, habitual intemperance or conviction of felony. A wife may work for years in or out of the home, economizing hero ically, planning to use her savings for her children's education. But her death without the possibility of will ing the money to her own children may be followed by the husband's re marriage and by the squandering of all her accumulations by the second wife, while the children of the first marriage are taken from school and put at once to work. One California woman, a 49'er, mother of a crippled son, spent many years of deep anxiety as she grew old, because she knew the law prevented her from willing a dollar of commu nity property to this son. She had the added fear that her husband would manage to divert the .community prop erty so as to leave her penniless in her old age. She could not protect her son or herself irom poverty. Other wives are as helpless, whether they know it or not. A married woman may become a sole trader by certain legal steps, at some expense, and with humiliation. As such she may control her earnings and business as an independent individual. Women are admitted on the same terms as men to all departments of the state university. Women of cour age forced their way into the univer sity years ago anii left the doors open. Women are eligible to school office throughout the state. Half the county superintendents of schools are women. Women serve as school trustees. Women occasionally fill high educa tional positions, but usually the high salaried places are given to men, who are promoted over the heads of expe rienced and able women. Women are lawyers, doctors and ministers in churches of all denomina tions except three. No law prevents their serving as jurors, but custom has so far prevented their service. Women do not receive equal pay for equal work either as teachers or in other positions. Women receive less pay for identical or better work. Women are taxpayers. Taxation without representation is tyranny now as it was in 1776. "The age of consent" is 16 years. A girl cannot legally sell any property at 16, but she can consent to the loss of her virtue. Girls are often stolen or seduced, but convictions vare ex tremely rare. The codes protect clams and lobsters and fish and birds, but they fail to protect girls sufficiently, or to punish those who trade in girls as sex -slaves. Woman offenders against any law are arrested by men, imprisoned with men (police matrons are not found in all jails), tried in a court by men lawyers, jurors and Judge, according to man-made laws. Half the jurors should be women, at least in cases re lating to crimes by women or against women. Wompn have not even school suf frage in California. They are allowed to vote partial suffrage in twenty-nine states. Three for school district trus tee; three are school and taxpaylng suffrage.. Eighteen states have some form of school suffrage. One state has municipal suffrage. Four states have votes for men and women on equal terms. The women of California may vote after both branches of the legislature have given a two-thirds vote in favor of an amendment, without signature of governor, and after the men of Cal ifornia have, given a majority vote In favor of votes for women. Women who are suffering injustice in their homes or In the courts are seldom able to take a public stand against present laws. Women whoso husbands are better than the laws, and women who are not in subjection arc froe. to take an active part in the movement for equality and freedom.

COSTUME PLAY HOLDS BOARDS AT BURBANK 'When Knighthood Was in Flower 5 Pleases Greatly-Stirring Melodrama at the .Grand SHIRLEY OLYMPIUS Costume plays, wherein there is a goodly mixture of love and pathos and wherein the < laracters are drawn in a big, bold manner, will never cease to be pop»lar. And this fact was at tested yesterday when the Burbank players presented "When Knighthood Was"in Flower." The matinee audience which filled every teat in the theater seemed to enjoy every moment, of the drama, judging from the numerous calls and the interspersed applause during the various acts. Not all of the applause was atven because of the play itself, however. Most of it was given to show thi appreciation of the efforts of the Burbankers whose act ing made the performance delightful. Charles Major's novel, "When Knighthood Was ir Flower," was one of the best sellers ever placed upon the book market. Likewise Paul Kes ter's play, a dramatization of Mr. Majeor's book was in its heyday the biggest money-getter on the dramatic market. The power which attracted then still exists in the current attrac tion of the Burbank theater, so Oliver Morosco should be able to buy another auto or two as a result of the busi ness of the week. It is necessary to give but a brief outline of the play's story. Mary Tudor, sister of Henry VIII, king of England,, is forced into a betrothal to the king of France, an aged and wholly detestable old o.idger. Mary loves Charles Brandon, captain in the King's Guards, and he loves her. They arc parted just as the marriage is to take place. Mary leads her kingly hus band such a merry chase that he, soon gives up the ghost. Brandon comes back from his exle to his love, they marry and all ends happily. Of the role of Mary Tudor. Marjorle Rambeau made a success, judging from one standpoint. But in plain, unadorned justice, I am bound to say Miss Ram beau over-acted. She burlesqued her character by too many low-comedy gestures. And again she insisted on being kittenishly comical at times when there was no need for any but a natural display. This criticism is made of Miss Rambeau's acting while the character Mi'lvllle Dollar from Guaymas. Mex.. via ilishly termagant moods. Mary Tudor was according to all accounts, full of life, headstrong, whimsical, darmg any- I thing, an angel or a she-devil as the spirit or occasion moved her, but withal a woman and therefore adorable. Mary I Tudor never was a buffoon, however. I Miss Rambeau gave full expression to all the phases of Mary's character and i disposition, but Miss Rambeau added i an ultra comedy note which could eas ily and should have been dispensed with. Byron Beasley made Captain Charles Brandon a virile, up-standing ' man, and pleased thereby. But Mr. LSt-asley is not a romantic actor in any sense of the word. I understand he made a brilliant success of the role of the Dauphin, the "heavy" of the play when it was presented last on the i Burbank stage. But Mr. Beasley did the best he knew how aa Charles Bran don, and angels and stars can do no more. Willis Marks made much of the small role of the kings jestur while David Landau as the Duke of Bucking ham, David Hartford as the Dauphin, Grace Travers as Mary's lady-in-wait ing Ethel yon Waldron, Percy Bron son, and others in the cast gave ex cellent account of themselves. "When Knighthood Was in Flower" has been given a handsome stage mounting; especially is this true of the opening act. When twelve or more near-murders are narrowly averted in the course of a tour-act play it may rightly be called v thrilling melodrama. Also it may be said that "there's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will." Such are the observations which must necessarily be made by any person who "sits through a performance of "The Cowboy and the Squaw," the current attraction at the Grand opera house. From the moment the curtain goes up on the initial act until it rises again on the fourth and only peaceful act there are battle, murder and sudden death in the atmosphere, but none of it ever comes out of the atmosphere. One be comes accustomed to the smell of gun powder, the sound of firearms being discharged and such expressions as "I will kill you or "Get out of my sight or you will be taken away on a stretcher" before "The Cowboy and the Squaw" comes finally to its denoue ment. But there is in the play some thing which makes one's nerves tingle and one's blood rush faster through one's veins. Therefore "The Cowboy and the Squaw" Is a real thriller and worth while as melodramas go. As the title suggests the locale of the play is in the west—Cu»ter county, Mont., to be accurate. The free, fresh air of the plains, the virility of big, broad, elemental men and the sweet simplicity of women of the plains as well as those of the city are to bu found in the play. "The Cowboy and the Lady" is a society drama with the damper off. Roy Sutherland, who plays the cow boy, is delightful in the role. He seems to be particularly adapted to such char acters, his "big broad^'frame and his kindly, gentle voice just suiting the part. Iva Shepard also makes a mo3t distinct impression as the girl from Chicago who falls in love and eventu ally marries the cowboy. Her role, though not "showy," is one which gives her ample opportunity to display her ingenue charm and graceful personal ity. Lillian Hayward scores heavily in the role of Silverheels, a Crow squaw whose doglike love and devotion to the cowboy leads her Into devious paths. Gertrude Claire creates no end of mer riment as Bridget McGinnis, a ranch cook. Chester Stevens is the "bad man" of the play. He is that, and then some. Others in the cast, including Joseph De Grasse, Minnie Janicke, Sid ney Diamond, Herbert Cramer, Lindley Phipps, Robert Chandler (no relation to "Whose Looney Now") and Frank Opperman, the last named making much of a "bit" in which he character izes a half-breed, give good account of themselves. A broncho riding and roping exhibition is a special feature of the performance. The Glrton company will leave the Grand this week, opening next Sunday at the Empire theater in West Third street. Ferris Hartman and his com pany will open at the Grand as soon^is certain repairs are made to the build lng- . . . The Pollards and the Nation**- opera company will open a week's engage ment at the Auditorium tonight in •The Mikado," the greatest opera Gil bert and Sullivan ever" wrote. The re cent revival of the famous opera scored heavily in the east, and capacity buwi ncss is looked for during the engage ment of the PollardH at the Auditorium. • • • With Bob Fitzsimmons, the man whom Jeffries felled, and his wife in a comedy skit, written by Bob hlmßelf, BURBANK REHEARSES 'THE ETERNAL THREE' New Play of Two Los Angeles Authors Now Being Staged by Manager Morosco Manager Oliver Morosco of the Bur bank theater has started work on the details of what he believes will be the most Important theatrical event of tho year In Los Angeles. This will be the production on October 16 of . a new play entitled "The Eternal Three," by two Los Angeles authors, Frederick Eldridge and Reed Heustls. The Burbank Is noted In the east for tho number of successful plays which first sco the calcium light there. Tho most recent of these Is Edgar Selwyn'a comedy, "The Country Boy," staged at tho Burbank last summer with Richard Bennett in the leading role, and which Is now the most spec tacular of tho season's successes on Broadway. Mr. Morosco believes tliat "The Eternal Three" will prove one of the most powerful plays written by Amer icans in many years, and he is giving the production his personal attention. Usually one week is all tho prepara tion a stock production Is accorded, but while the company Is putting on '■The Substitute," which follows "When Knighthood was in Flower," Mr. Morosco will be hard at work getting everything ready for the pre miere of the new play the following week. This drama Is of the modern type dealing with life in tho great middle class, and it will give Miss Marjorie Rambeau one of tho strongest roles she has ever had. Howard Scott, the popular character actor, who has Just signed a one year's contract to play at the Burb»Jik, will make his first appearance since his long European tour, and will spend a week In foregathering with old friends before getting down to work again. While in New York he refused three flattering engagements. One was th«r role of the detective In tho new pro duction of "The Deep Purple," in which Richard Bennett is boing starred; another the lead in "Boots and Saddles," and the other a promi nent place In the cast of the forth coming production of "Chantecler." But as Mr. Morosco met tho New York managers in the matter of salary, Scott decided to return here, where he has so many admirers. "A Man's a Man for a' That," as the ftaturod attraction, Pantage's new vau deville villa on South Broadway will begin the second week of its existence this afternoon. Other prominent fea tures of the bill will be Jessie Edwards and her Pomeranian Spitz dogs in a novel act; Myrtle Victorlno, "The Fashion Plate Soubrette;" Buch broth ers, comedy acrobats; Jack Hawkins and company in a comedy skit, and Claude Golden, the Australian card king. • • • This will be children's week at the Orpheum. Beginning with the mati nee today, the house will present a bill appealing especially to the little folk. It will be headed by Captain George Auger, the tallest actor on earth, who is eight feet six inches high, and who will appear In his own sketch of "Jack the Giant Killer," with a company of midgets, including p;rnest Rommel as Jack. The sketch is a thrilling replica of the fairy tales, of youth, reproduced in most lifeliko fashion, with weird light effects and scenic investiture, and will be highly realistic. On Saturday afternoon a reception will be held on the stage for the youngsters. In which the captain, Mr. Rommel and the other little folk will "participate. Bert Kalmer and ■ Jessie Brown have a novelty dancing act for this week, with beautiful ac cessories, some new songs and many clever steps originated by Mr. Kalmer. The Jack Artois duo is a team of comedy acrobats, who in clown garb do many astounding feats. The Bison City four is the first quartet to visit the Orpheum in some time, and as it is*>ne of the best known on the road, will be more than welcome. Charac ter Impersonations by Its members make it novel. The delightful "Top o' th' World" dancers, with the polar bear, the collie ballet and all the pretty girls, remains to add joy to children's week, while M. and Mrs. Connelly, McKay and Cantwell and the Krags trio make up the rest of the bill, with special motion pictures to give it a final touch. Altogether, it is one of the most attractive programs the Orpheum has offered of late. . c • c The visiting bankers are to occupy all the seats at the Orpheum on the nights of October 5 and 6, when the house will be turned over to them, at the request of the entertainment com mittee, who selected the Orpheum as the representative theater for this purpose. Mr and Mrs. Connelly, who are pre senting one of Sir W. S. Gilbert's plays, "Sweetheart," at the Orpheum this will no doubt go to see his most famous opera, "The Mikado," at the Auditorium, where it is to be sung this week, making an odd coincidence, for seldom does a city house dramatic and musical works by the same writer in the same week. • • • Emmet Devoy, the •veil known mu sical comedy star, with beautiful Her mine Shone and a company of agree able players, offering Mr. Devoy's original and screamingly funny farce entitled "The Saintly Mr. Billings," will head a bill of new feature acts opening at the Los Angeles theater this afternoon. This is Mr. Devoy's first vaudevile tour, he having for the pust few years been the star of various musical comedy productions. He was recently seen here as the star of "In Dreamland." Dorsch and Russell will be another unique act on the new bill. They are known as "The Musical Railroaders," and have a musical act which Is ab solutely new and novel, while it re quires a spectacular stage setting. Violet Allen and her company will offer their lively farce called "Keeping an Appointment," and based on the old saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention." Others on the new bill are Black and McCone, the military acrobatic comiquen; Mary Ann Brown, I the fascinating character comedienne, 1 and Milton and Delmar, offering their original rural comedy sketch entitled "Uncle Si's Visit." ■ a c Mlas Margaret lUlngton's engrage ment at the Majestic theater, which begins this evening In her new play, "Until Eternity," ends the period of darkness at the Independents' local house.

Whence polished rays llko lances fly, A pud of dust adown the road; A horse that pants beneath his load; A flower that blooms along the way, And by the morrow fades away. A weary «tcp, a hopeless sigh— Oh, whence and wherefore this July! July! July! A twilight sky; A whlHper as the breeze draws nigh; And leaves a perfumed. Hweet farewell. From dying hlosnoms loved so well. A city strange In cloudland there; A starry radiance In the air. Kind nature does not quite deny Some tenderness c'en to July.
