LOS ANGELES-PACIFIC
PLANS FARE REDUCTION
Will Sell 60 Ride Commutation
Tickets for $3, Begin
ning Jan. 1i 1911
Reduced fares on the lines of. the
Los Angeles-Pacific railway, to be
come effective on or about January 1,
1911, were made known yesterday in a
letter signed by D. W. Pontius, traffic
manager of the company, which was
filed with the board of public utilities.
The new order provides for the issu
ance and sale of sixty-ride individual
commutation tickets for $3, Rood for
ninety days; thirty-ride family com
mutation tickets for $2.10, good for
ninety days, and forty-ride school
commutation tickets for $1.50, limited
to the school term, for use between Los
Angeles and Gardner junction on the
Hollywood line and Highland avenue
on the Colegrove line.
The tickets will be honored between
the points named via any route.
Transfers will be issued to cars of the
company's line in Los Angeles, Holly
wood and Colegrove.
On the name date the Be fare will
be extended from Arlington street to
Vineyard on the Sixteenth street line.
In regard to the proposal to estab
lish a flat rate fare of 6 cents between
Los Angeles and Hollywood and Los
Angeles and Colegrove, General Man
ager Sherman by letter Informed the
board of public utilities that the time
had not arrived when the company
felt that a sufficient return from its
investment would accrue from a 5-cent
fare.
The letter says in part:
"Desiring in so far as we consistently
can to promote a good understanding
and friendly feeling between the resi
dents of the Hollywood and Colegrove
sections and our company, an investi
gation has been made of the effect
upon our revenue of the single trip
6-cent fare that has been requested,
nnd we regret that we cannot profit
ably carry on our business under that
rate with conditions as they are, :;s the
bulk of our business would lie carried
on under a rate yielding us only from
% to % of a cent per mile. The coun
try between is not yet thickly pecu
lated, and we have no compensating
.short hauls, as in the case of city rail
ways, to make up losses on the longer
hauls.
v "Annexation may become very wide
spread, consolidation of city and coun
ty government being even now con
templated, and obviously the inter
urban electric railway lines could not
make effective a rate of 6 cents within
BUCh possibly enlarged limits and con
tinue in business.
"In the character of our reconstruc
tion work on the line to Hollywood,
niiil in the improvement of our service
to follow, we are. trying to show the
spirit of friendly co-operation with
the residents of that section, and hope
linn our side of the question may lie
considered by our Hollywood friends."

COUNCIL MAY GIVE $7500
TO HEAT POLICEMEN'S FEET
East End Squad May Get Steam
Pipes Near the Floor
The yearly epidemic of cold feet
among the policemen of the Eastslde
station, which breaks out aa the chill
blasts of winter start to whistle, this
year stands in a fair way to be nipped
in the bud. Yesterday the finance
committee of the council intimated
that it would recommend to the coun
cil to appropriate $7500, a portion of
which will be used to stave off tho
pedal frigidity of the Eastside squad,
the money to be expended in removing
the heating system pipes from tho
celling and installing: them nearer the
floor.
\ the heating system now operates,
offices of Captain Jlaupt's detail have
no other method of warming their
toes than to stand upon their heads
In nn effort to reach the glow of
pipe.". Captain Haupt objects to hav
ing his station house turned into an
imitation of a head-balancers" act in
a tliree-ring circus, and through Chief
Galloway yesterday made a plea for
a heating system which would be all
that the name implies.
The central station is, according to
the statement of the chief, in need
of a reorganization and repair of its
radiators, and part of the $7r>oo will be
used to correct the existing- faults.

News of the Courts
LAURA-JEAN-LIBBEYED
MAN AVERS WIFE CRUEL
Husband Secures Divorce from
Mate Who Prefers 'Yellow
Backs' to Cooking
That the readinsr of trashy novels by
a wife constitutes cruelty to the hus
bnnd was a theory advanced in the
divorce court, where Judge Church
of Fresno presided yesterday.
Edward W. Smith, who was given a
decree of divorce from his wife, Kosa
V. Smith, asserted that Mrs. Smith
had been cruel to him by the continual
perusal of trashy novels against his
will and to his detriment when she
Laura-Jean-liibbeyed throufch the day
instead of preparing his meals.
Smith told of frequently returning
home at night, tired from a long day's
work, to find that supper was not
vt ady ami that his wife was curled up
on the sofa reading the trials and
tribulations of misused heroines.
When he remonstrated, he said, his
wife told him he 'knew what lie could
do if he didn't like it."
Furthermore, he alleged, his wife be
came so infatuated with reading the
yellow-covered volumes that she de
manded of him that he supply her
with more of them, striking him and
calling him vile names when he re
fused.
Margaret Clinton, who told the court
that her husband, Dr. Edward M. Clin
ton, a physician of San Francisco,
whose wealth is said to be in the
neighborhood of $200,000, deserted her
after gradually growing colder and
cloder, was given a divorce.
Mattie Ida Palmatory was granted
a decree from Jake Palmatory upon
her satisfying the court that her hus
band had failed to provide for her.
For a similar reason Eva Cadn'.an was
divorced from Edwin J. Cadman.
The contested divorce action of Gus
tave W. Maas, president of the Insti
tute of Mechanical Orthopaedics, who
accuses his wife, Bessie Maud Maas,
of Infidelity, was resumed.
Only three new divorce suits were
filed yesterday. They were those of
F. Joseph Knisrht against Gertrude
Rebecca Knight, Ethel L. Gilley
against Henry E. Gilley, and Lulie
Ucdington against Ralph Redington.
ASSESSMENT OF STOCK
CAUSES INJUNCTION SUIT
Court Asked to Stop Paradise
Mountain Company Sale
Asking an injunction preventing the
sale of delinquent stock In the Para
dise Mountain Mining- and Milling
company, Thomas \V. Aisbitt and
other stockholders in the concern yes
terday filed a suit against it and W.
H Miller, O. W. Teutschman, H. B.
Woodward, H. Galeron, Jr., and C. W.
Pendleton, who, according to the com
plaint, "protend to be directors."
The plaintiffs claim to own about
54 000 shares of stock in the company
and are objecting to an assessment of
2 cents a share to pay an indebtedness
of $IS,UOO which, it is charged, the al
leged directors contracted without the
consent of the corporation. The stock
upon which the assessment was levied
became delinquent October 10, and un
less the injunction is granted it will
b'' sold November 1.
The court is asked to declare the as
sessment null and void, to enjoin the
defendants from selling the stock and
to appoint a receiver to look into the
affairs of the company.
TIMES EXPLOSION VICTIM

French Method of
Developing the Bust
Mdme. Dußarrie Explains How
the Bust May Be Developed
2 to 8 Inches in 30 Days
"I am explaining for the first time to
the ladies of America," says Madame
Dnßarrte, "the French method of de
veloping the bust. It Is much more
effective, the results appear much
more quickly, the breasts become more
firm, plump and symmetrical, the
method is more simple, the effects
more lasting, and altogether beyond ;
comparison with flic results produced i
here.
•You know the French people have I
the development of the bust and form i
down to a fine point.
"By this French method, the breasts
may be developed from Z to S inches
In 30 days. This applies to women of
almost any age, from young girls to
elderly matrons, whether the bust is
absolutely not developed at all, or has
jjrown weak and flabby, and hangs, no j
matter from what cause.
"It is beauty of form that attracts
much more than the features. You j
will always find it so with both sexes,
"I will be only too glad to tell any j
■woman who is interested what this
simple French method is, if she WQIJ
enclose a 2 cent stamp to pay for the
postage. I will send an Illustrated
booklet in a plain sealed wrapper that ;
will explain it all."
We suggest to our lady readers ;
that they write to Madame DuUarrie
for particulars of this remarkable
French method, enclose 2 cents in ]
stamps for the Illustrated booklet and j
address it to Mdme. Dunarrie, Suite j
TM\ Quinlan Building, fnleago, 111.
Y.M.C.A. EXPECTS
MANY MEMBERS
Campaign in Progress Promises
Remarkable Increase in Or
ganization's Strength
Four hundred members are needed |
in the world's convention membership :
campaign of the Young Men's Chris- i
tian association. This was the report
of Chairmen Parmelee and Lyon last !
night. Citizens are urged to more than j
make up this deficit today. To aid |
business men in turning in their mem
berships downtown headquarters at
455 South Spring street (telephone j
A 5365) will be kept open. This location |
in the heart of the business center is i
chosen so that every interested man j
or boy may file his application.
It has been learned that Portland |
is also after the next Y. M. C. A. con
vention, and Secretary Luther tele
graphs that Kansas City Is in a-similar,
campaign for EOOO.
In speaking last night of the returns
of the day Mr. Lyon said:
VOLUNTARY RESPONSE ASKED
"The pride of our city is at stake.
Our men have worked nobly, but it
is physically impossible for them to
cover the ground. I believe there are
several hundred men who have re
ceived the letter from Mr. Cass or oth
ers who are just waiting to join, but I
expect to be called on. I desire to say
to them that it will be practically Im
possible for them all to be visited, and
we must depend upon their voluntary
response ill order to reach our desired
goal. We must send our telegram to
President Letts Saturday night.
"The fact that within the past ten
days 800 members have been reecived, ,
a large portion of whom came in yes
terday, indicates that the balance of
our 400 is easily within our reach, pro
vided the Los Angeles spirit asserts
Itself."
Vice President Cass, whose letter
went to many business men, said:
"It should be borne in mind that ;
identifying oneself with the association
not only will help to bring a world's
gathering, with thousands of visitors
here, but will show an interest in one
Of our most valued public spirited in
stitutions, whose every-day work on
the young men and boys in their all
around development makes a contribu
tion to the future of our city beyond
estimate. I urge every public spirited
citizen to respond to the need for
memberships at this time."
PLANS FOB SATURDAY WORK
Lunch will be served at 12:15 o'clock
at the downtown headquarters, where
it is desired that the best report pos
sible may be had. It is suggested that
those Interested do everything possible
in the forenoon on account of short
hours in some places Saturday, al
though headquarters will be open all
day and workers out until late at
night.
Boys' Work Director Cross said yes
terday there were many boys on his
list who could not pay for member
ships, but who would bo a good in
vestment for business men who wished
to take out memberships for these
boys.

ALIEN WOMAN NAMED TO
BE CITY SCHOOL NURSE
Civil Service Commission Certi
fies Subject of King George
for Appointment
Dr. Sherwln Gibbons of the board
of health discovered at yeaterday b
meeting that Miss Beatrice K. Hutch
inson, who had been certified to the
board by the civil Bervlce commission
as eligible to appointment as school de
partment nurse, having taken the com
mission's examination, is not a citizen
Of the United States, she still holding
allegiance to England. On thes'i
grounds her appointment was held up.
The woman frankly admitted that she
was still a subject of King George and
asserted that at the time she appeared
before the civil service commission she
made no effort to hide her nationality.
"Did you tell the civil service com
mission that you were not a citizen of
the United States?" asked Dr. Gibbons.
"Why," she responded, "my applica
tion blank plainly showed that."
••[ cannot understand," exclaimed Dr.
Gibbons, "why the civil service com
mission can adopt bucl) tactics as evi
ed here. The commissioners must
have had sufficient knowledge of the
woman's citizenship to decline to give
mi examination. The state law ex
pressly provides that ellglbles to ap
pointment to the position of school de
partment nurse must be citizens of the
United States, yet they inconvenience
this woman and clog the meetings of
the hoard by sending us s person who
is Ineligible to appointment.
"A short time ago the civil service
commission refused to examine an ap
plicant for this position on the ground
thai she was not a citizen—l refer to
Miss Nil hols, whose work as a nurse
was wholly satisfactory, yet now they
send ua b certified eligible, whom wn
find prior to her examination admitted
that she had not received her final
naturalization papers."
Miss Ella i>. nates was appointed a
nurse in the school department.

SANTA FE GETS 80,000
TIES FROM TASMANIA
English Traveler Tells of Big
Shipment of Eucalyptus
for Railroad
J. T. T. Paxton, head of a corpora
tion composed of English bunkers, is
in Los Angeles, en route home from a

ing after the interests of his corpora

ment of eucalyptus ties, which will

which are to be experimented with by
the .Santa Pc railroad.
The ties, according to Mr. Paxton,
