$5000 CAT MAKES
HIT IN CLUB SHOW
Miss Rambeau Buys Silvery Kit

TO RAFFLE WHITE ANGORA
Gate Receipts of Feline Exhibi
tion Net $200 a Day-Rib
bon Prizes Awarded
The second day of the fifth annual
exhibition of the Los Angeles Cat club
at Pantages theater yesterday showed
cage after* cage of bored und tired look
ing cats. The hundred and forty-five
aristocrats of catdom are beginning to
feel the weariness of cage life, to miss
the attention of adoring mistresses and
masters. The ivory balls and tinkling
bells suspended from the tops of their
boxes, tho rolling balls and other toys
supplied for their amusement are
commencing to pall and the spoiled
darlings have curled down on their
cushions with blinking eyes and refuse
to show off any longer. Even the
Teddy beur which is tho inseparable
companion of Mischief, pet of Miss E.
K. Harrison, has tailed to amuse and
is left unnoticed In a corAer.
Many cat* have found new owners,
only the $1000 cats and the one $5000
feline proving poor sellers.
Miss Marjorie Rambeau passed tho
greater part of tho afternoon inspect
ing tho cats, but for a long time was
too torn between the many different
beauties to decide which one to buy.
At last at the far end of the hall she
spied the one cat of the collection for
her.' A small silvery kitten, nine
months old, waiting for a new mis
tress and a name, was pushing an in
dulsltive nose through tho bars when
Miss Hambeau saw it.
"Oh, there is my kitten," she ex
claimed, and would look at no other.
'•I shall name him Uungha pin."
With a rapturous smile from Miss
Hambeau and a Contented purr from
Cungha Din the pair left together like
tho oldest of friends.
HAUGHTIEST OF A LI, CATS
"Herald," the cat named for this
paper, was feeling particularly lively
all day. He is a fine white Angora,
presented to the club by Mrs. John D.
Mercer. Tonight he will be raffled off
ut 9 o'clock. The holder of the lucky
number at the raiXle will become the
possessor of a finely pedigreed cat for
the price of 25 cents, the amount of a
Among the haughtiest of all the cats
there is Colonel Dunham, the famous
"hotel" cat. The Colonel has spent his
entire life at hotels and has but re
cently moved from the King Edward
hotel, which was built by his master
and namesake, also Col. Dunham.
Stirling Sensation, wholly unaware
of the appropriateness of his name, is
a beautiful, silky black cat, valued by
Ills mistress, .Mm. A. Franklin, at $50001
which made quite a hit.
Bob, the only Manx cat in the ex
hibition, is proud in the unusual pos
session of five toes and holds himself
with an air which plainly indicates his
knowledge of his own value.
A tea room is run in connection with
the show so that those who cannot
tear themselves away from the kittens
may have lunch on the spot. With this
device and the gate receipts, the wom
en declare that they are clearing from
$150 to $200 a day. The exhibition will
close this evening with the presentation
of a sliver spoon to the cat which has
the largest number of votes for being
the most popular animal in the show.

URGES REFORM IN
Secretary of Treasury in Annual
Report Advocates Many
WASHINGTON, Dec. B.—Currency
reform: extension of tho scope of the
national banking laws, in the event
of no immediate general changes in
the monetary'system; crvil service re
tirements, a sustoms service free from
"practical" politics; businesslike meth
ods in tho daily transactions of the
government and a general abolition of
red tape wherever it clogs the wheels
of the government business, are among
the recommendations contained in the
annual report of Franklin MacVeagh,
secretary of the treasury, presented to
The expenses of government in the
fiscal year 1912, for which this ses
sion of congress is asked to appro
priate, are estimated at $830,494,013.12.
The esymated expenditures of the
Panama canal are given as $56,920,
--847.69, making a total of $687,414,860.81.
The estimates, if carried out, rep
resent net savings of about $13,000,000
In the executive departments, as com
pared with the appropriations for the
current fiscal year.
Receipts for 1912, Secretary llao-
Veagh estimates, will be $680,000,000,
which would leave an ordinary surplus
of a round $50,000,000. If the treasury
.should continue to pay for the Panama
canal out of the cash drawer aa at
present, such a surplus would be
turned to a deficit of $7,414,860.81.
Secretary MacVeagh expresses the
hope that the monetary question will
come into congress detached from sec
tional or political consideration.
superfluous customs houses, mints and
assay offices should be abolished, the
report says. There is an over-supply
of the latter, and the mints in Sun
Francisco, Denver an Philadelphia are
not fully employed.
The Secretary also promises to send
to congress a list of customs houses
which he says, "are no use under the

DISCUSSED BY EXPERTS

of currency reform" was discussed by

tional monetary commission; Senator
Burton, a member of the commission;
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Andrew, a former secretary of the
commission, and Director Roberts of
the mint at a special session of the
American Academy of Political and
Social Science here tonight.
Senator Aldrich declared that in his
opinion the reform at the present bank
ing system was the most important
work now before Vthe monetary conj
missiori. The currency problem would
adjust itself, he said, when the bank
ing system was taken care of.
