AIRSHIP RACERS DEFY BLUE LAWS Baltimore Aviation Meet Resumes Contest Sunday Despite Arrest of Officials LATHAM GIVES EXHIBITION Drexel Pierces Clouds—Police In terference Reduces the Attendance (Associated Press) BALTIMORE, Nov. 6.—The Balti more aviation meet, interrupted by the storm of Thursday, which wrecked hangars and damaged several aero planes, was resumed this afternoon. But the troubles of the promoters were not at an end. Many excursionists came from dif ferent points, and, knowing they would be here, the officials determined to re sume the program today, notwith standing that the commissioners of Baltimore county had declared last night that they would not permit it. The possibility of police interference reduced tho attendance. However, the county police contented themselves •with arresting several ticket sellers and other officials, who were taken before a Justice of the peace and released under bail. The county commissioners are said to have acted under a very old "blue law." The aviators had not made as good progress as was anticipated in repair ing their aeroplanes, and there were no formal contests this afternoon. Hu bert Latham made three exhibition flights, one for altitude, in which he scored 2100 feet. J. Armstrong Drexel reached the field late, but shortly after arriving made a try for altitude and reached 3500 feet. Both flyers reported very low tempera tures. The contests will be resumed tomor row. Announcement of Saturday next as an added day was made tonight. Shipping News SAN PEDRO, Nov. B.—Arrived: Steamship Santa Kosa fmm San Diego; (team schooner William H.

American Women's League Tho Los Angeles chapter has the coveted honor of giving the first re sent for tho state of California, as Claudia Haicn White, president of the LOS Angeles chapter, led the entire United States in point of numerical strength In votes cast for the im portant oillce which means state or i ganigatlon. Mrs. White is, peculiarly I qualified in training and temperament for this high office. She has probably organized more clubs and societies, ami assisted in procuring funds for the building of a greater number of churches, orphan asylums, hospitals and colleges than any other woman in thi.s country, and her versatility has won for her the highest recognition. She has a keen, analytical mind, and Los Angeles is proud to give to Cali fornia so brilliant a woman to dis charge the exacting requirements of the state regency. The first winter meeting of the Los Angeles chapter house was held in Symphony hall, Blanchard building, j Wednesday evening, November 2, at 8 o'clock, with Dr. Henriette E. Sweet in the chair. Dr. Sweet was recently appointed president of tho Los An geles chapter by the executive board to fill tho unexpired term of Pearl Adams Spaulding, resigned. Dr. Sweet is well loved in the Los Angeles chap ter as well as in the northern part of the state, where she has organized a I number of chapters. Her most con j spicuous work for tho Los Angeles chapter was the organization of a ten weeks' class in body building, and she has generously offered to repeat the course this winter as soon as seventy five members register at the chapter house. Dr. Sweet's class in body building will be conducted at the Sweet-Lowe Rest home, 3311 Temple street, one of the most charming homes in the country. STAR-GAZER GIVES IMITATION' Professor Edgar F. Larkin of Mount Lowe observatory delivered the prin cipal address of the evening, which was a rare combination of wit and the garnered wisdom of his fifty years' study of the stars. Professor Larkin is a distinguished member of the American Woman's league, and his ! humorous account of his experience in joining the league at the first national convention held last June at Univer sity City was keenly enjoyed. Professor Larkin invited the Los Angeles chapter to spend the day and evening at the observatory at Mount Lowe in January, the date to be an nounced In the Los Angeles Herald. It will be a rare opportunity for mem bers to be the guests of this distin guished astronomer. Mrs. Ella K. Sprinkel, vice president of the Los Angeles chapter, gave an able talk on debentures and the con solidation of the Lewis publications centering in the Woman's National Daily. The change is so radical that the explanation was deemed essential, but it is meeting with the gratified approval of the members of the Los Angeles chapter. VOTE FOR AMENDMENT NO. 1 9 Under the present system of taxation The State Board of Equalization raised the tax valuation of Los Angeles County for the fiscal year 1909 and 1910 40% which cost the county $600,000 For which there was no remedy Next year they can raise Los Angeles county 100% > if they so desire and there will be no remedy as their power is paramount unless the tax-payers vote for Tax Amendment No. 1 which will do away with this evil Therefore all owners of real estate vote for Tax Amendment No. 1 See Unanimous Resolution of the Governing Committee Los Angeles Realty Board LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 1910. Mrs. Martha Chapln gave a spirited address on the plans and purposes of the league. Mrs. Chapln attended the first national convention and has qual ified for tho next convention. She is very prominently identified with the Woman's Relief corps. Miss Lottie WandS, who organized the Los Angeles Chapter quartet, gave an exquisite vocal number, ac ■ companied by Mrs. Talbot Winship. Dr. George W. Carey of South Pasa dena announced a course of twelve lectures to be given at Burbank hall, 542 South Main street, the first to be j given Wednesday, Novemher 9, on i "The Paradoxes of Civilization;" and on succeeding weeks will be given the following: "Different Kinds of Devils or the | Troubles of New Thought People," | "Let there be Light," "Wonders of the i Human Body," "The Discovery of Cos- ' mie Law," "What Is Electricity?" "The j Philosopher's Stone," "The Vision of the New Time," "Spiritual Phenom ena," "The Occult Meaning of Slang Phrases," "The End of the World and What Then?" "Peace Through Chem istry." The following resume of the sum mer's work was read by the secretary, Miss Jennie Van Allen: The report of the secretary of the Loa Angeles diaper of the American Worn- | an's league for the season ending No vember 1, 1910. The last evening meeting of the Los Angeles chapter was held In Symphony ! hall, Blanchard building, June 3, 1910, when a formal vote for the selection of a lot suitable for the Los Angeles j chapter house was taken. The Los Angeles chapter having ful filled its part the plans of these prop erties, together with the votes, wore expressed to Mr. Arthur, head of the j chapter house department at Unlver- i sity City and will receive due consider- ' atlon when the Los Angeles chapter qualifies for a $r>o,ooo chapter house by enrolling 2500 full paid members. The year 1910 will be memorable in j the history of the Los Angeles chapter, j After the appointment of Pearl Adams Spaulding as coast manager of the ] American Woman's league the growth of the league movement was phenom- ; enal, and under her brilliant adminis tration more work was accomplished i In five states than in the entire United States. It was felt to an extraordinary I degree in this city, through the medium , of monthly federated meetings Inaugu- i rated by Mrs. Spaulding, which re- I suited in the consolidation of two j powerful chapters, the Los Angeles ] chapter and the E. G. Lewis chapter, Mrs. Ella K. Sprinkel. president of the ; former and Dr. Henriette E. Sweet president of the latter, on March 4. Mr. Lewis' birthday, under the name of the Los Angeles chapter, with a member ship of 500 and now numbering over 1800, having over 1000 more members than any other chapter in the United States. Mr. Lewis suggested the election of j Mrs. Pearl Adams Spaulding as presi- I dent and Mrs. Ella K. Sprinkel and ! To Watchjhe Count All believers in clean politics and an honest count of the ballots who are willing to volun teer their services to watch the count on the night of election day, beginning at 6 o'clock p. m. and ending with the close of the count, are urged to report today at Good Government head quarters, 318 Fay building, corner of Third and "Hill streets, giving their names, addresses and telephone numbers. An honest count of the ballots is a vital necessity. Such service as is now asked of good citizens is one of the most important they can render to the cause of political decency. It is a high type of work, and no citizen should feel himself above it. Some of the best known men of Los Angeles already have volunteered their services in this direction and have been assigned to precincts where it is anticipated they may be needed. THE GOOD GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION GUARANTEES FULL PROTECTION TO EVERY MAN WHO COMES TO THE FRONT. Volunteers are requested to call for Mr. Zahn, Mr. Reynolds or Mr. Warren. Telephones, Main 6603, F4792. GOOD GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION, .' George Baker Anderson, Secretary. Dr. Henriette E. Sweet as first vice president*, with equal power In tho conduct of the chapter; also Claudia Hazen White, Mrs. Loland Norton, Mrs. Amelia A. Gunten as vice presidents, and Miss Jennie Van Allen, secretary and treasurer. Mrs. Spaulding recently resigned her ! position as president of the Los An i geles chapter, and at a meeting of the board October 17 Dr. Sweet was unan imously appointed president to fill Mrs. Spaulding's unexpired term. An event of national importance to the American Woman's league was the | winning of tho beautiful bungalow in the Los Angeles Herald's voting con test. It is now known as tho Los An geles chapter house, and the title is I vested in the name of the Los Angeles chapter, to be held In perpetual trust ; for the chapter. This was done by the expressed wish of E. O. Lewis, founder of the league, who personally gave $1100 at a critical period in the contest, and to Mr. Lewis' generosity and the splendid co-operation of the Los Angeles members this chapter is indebted for a chapter house worth $5300, a piano worth $600 (Mrs. Spauld ing having advanced $100 at the time this was won), a $250 lot at Brawley and a $100 diamond ring, making the gratifying total of $6250, thus making the Los Angeles chapter the largest and richest in the United States. The money advanced by Mr. Lewis and Mrs. Spaulding is regarded as a loan, and will be naid as soon as the lot at Brawley and the diamond ring are sold. The new chapter house has been the scene of many delightful affairs dur ing the summer, the most notable be ing the house warming on August 3, and the flag raising day on September 17. The charming Saturday evenings with music and other attractions are now merged in the organization of a remarkable array of classes under the direction of a coterie of brilliant wom en who gratuitously give their ser vices to supplement the correspondence courses of tho league. Tho following classes have been organized: LUw—Mrs. tiara Shortbridge Foltz, at her offices in the Merchants' Trust building, at 3 o'clock Saturday after noons; Dr. Susan lialfe, parliamentary law, at her offices, 505 Mason building, Tuesday evenings at 7 o'clock; Miss Constance Lister, music, at the home of Mrs. M. M. Howarter, 922 Maple avenue, Friday evenings; Mrs. Emily Lockwood Hubbert, art, at her studio, 1801 West Twenty-first street, Friday afternoon, 2 to 5; Miss Ida M. Coates, art, at her studio, 215714 West Wash ington street; ornamental lettering, Miss Emilie S.

M. Vance's, 1058 S. Main street. The Los Angeles chapter has had a number of beautiful gifts presented in tho way of china and silver by Mrs. Dora Sturges; tapestry and water col ors by Mrs. E. L. Hubbert; a hundred year-old heirloom by Miss Margaret Fette; a beautiful silk flag by three members; a splendid bunting flag from twelve of the members of Uncle Sam's post, who aro also members of the chapter. The Los Angeles chapter house is the only one on the long list under the name of "special," and we ai-e under great obligation to the Los Angeles Herald for this distinction—The Herald having made possible this beautiful temporary chapter house. It is due The Herald that subscriptions be universal, as it is the only way the chapter has of chronicling the past and future events. We can only recognize what it means to the Los Angeles chapter to have a great newspaper back of it, when we realize it is the only chapter in the United States to have the sup port of a great metropolitan news- paper. Taken as a whole the Los An gelos chapter has made a splendid rec ord—back of it lies the magnificent planning of Pearl Adams Spauldlng, who has risen from the humble post of coast manager to the head of the organization department of the entire United States. She is the only woman at the head of a department who is a member of the board of trustees and one of the vloe presidents. The Los Angeles chapter was the first to present a trowel for the lay ing of the first chapter house corner stone in California, In fact the first chapter In the United States to present a trowel. The Los Angeles chapter is also the first to organize a woman's exchange; the first to have a proposi tion made them by a large real estate firm to sell property on a commission basis, it has also organized a home finding department, and inquiries are coming from all over the United States from people who are looking for a home or business location in California; and the first to have a house wanning. It was also the first to establish an Arbor day, the date for the first ceremony to be announced later. Many members have promised fruit trees, ornamental shrubbery and rose bushes for beauti fying the chapter house grounds. The Los Angeles chapter Is the first to Rive a. series of outdoor meetings In the parks, which have been delight ful In this semi-tropical land, the first being held at Echo park and the sec ond at Eastlake park. The chapter house will be closed Saturday nights during the winter, but will be open every day from 9 to 5 with the exception of Monday, when it will be closed until 1 o'clock p. m. This was done by order of Herbert Lane, business manager of the Ameri can Woman's league. Los Angeles chapter has given California a regent who has led the entire United States in point of the number of votes cast for her —Claudia Hazen White, a wom an who Is loved most by those who know her best. FOOTPADS MENACE MAN WITH DEATH Knife Flashed in Face of Victim of Highwaymen in South Prichard Street POLICE HOPE FOR CAPTURE Three Desperadoes Believed to Be Same Ones Who Commit ted Series of Crimes While tvfo men pinioned his arms and a third flourished a knife in his face, John Dunlap, 112 South Prlchard street, was robbed in the glare of an arc light near his home early yester day morning. A three-quarter-karat diamond was cut from his necktie, a watch and chain torn from his vest, and a large wallet filled with cards and papers, which the robbers evi dently believed contained money, taken from him by the man who held the knife. Houghly throwing Dunlap from them, the men curtly command ed him to "move on" under penalty of having his "windpipe slit," and as he walked away they disappeared. Dunlap, his clothes torn and disor dered, made his way to police head quarters, where he reported the hold up and gave an accurate description of the robbers. Dunlap's descriptioin has furnished tho police with a clew which they believe will enable them to arrest the men. The tactics which t*ie men used in holding up Dunlap cause the police to believe they are guilty of similar robberies, although not operating together. Dunlap was returning to his homo after a visit with friends and had reached the arc light when he heard three men behind I.lm. Halting for a moment to allow the men to pass, he tbs seized on each side and his arms and head were bent backward, while the knee of one of the men who held his arms was pressed against his back. Bent almost double, with tho pout sleeve of one of the men pressed against his mouth, Dunlap was help less in their grip. Deftly the robber wielding the knife went through his clothes with the skill of, a profes sional. As the man finished Dunlap was Jerked upward and flung: head fore most from them, almost falling to the pavement. Steadying himself, he was about to look around when one of the men commanded him to walk ahead. Dunlap lost no time in getting away from the robbers.
