Merritt Eight members of the city council yesterday voted against changes In the building ordinance that would have made possible the erection of the Hu lctt C. Merritt building t>t Eighth and Broadway. Councilman O'Brien alone voted to make the changes. The limit of height remains as heretofore — feet on tho property line find thirty for ii mansard roof. The total height of the proposed r.'.Li-ritt building- Is £33 feet. Mr. Merritt Intimated when ho first learned that members oC the council wen not friendly to his plan that If unfavorable action -were taken he would appeal to the people direct through an initiative ordinance. '" gave out a statement last night review- Ing his plan and his efforts to obtain such changes in the ordinance as would permit him to build the structure and intimated that if thi people of ■ ■•• city want the building, he will give them a chance to ay so. it. is possible, therefore, that the Initiative may be invoked. LAW! > BS M I I"M> SESSION There was a great array of lepral talent and prominent citizens yester day when tho matter was taken up for consideration by tin council. Ar rayed with Mr. Merritt, for the build ing was a committee from the chamber of commerce composed of H. ','. Os borne, Carl E. McStay, J. V. Vickers, 11. R. Callender, Percy 11. Clark, Wal ter Lindley, Arthur W. mey, .1. B. burn, L. M. Coke and E. P. Bos bysii. : Lined up against Mr. Mernitt ana the chamber of commerce were H. W. Iveny, representing Spring street property owners; Herbert J. Goudge, representiner Broadway property own ers; Dana W. Bartlett, representing: the city planning committee, and Marshall Stimaon, representing the Municipal league. Never was there such a flow of oratory In the council chamber, Kpi gram and alliteration flew thick and fast. 11. W. O'Melveny said, ami other thing! that "every skyscraper is a housing trust." Mr. Goudge contended that if sky-scrapers were permitted Hlong the narrow streets of Los An geles there would soon be no sunny side to tho street and that the streets would become "damp, dark, dreary, draughty defiles of dim depths with tho denizens dying of dread disease." Mr. Goudge wanted to say something else that bcßan with "D" but there were women present and he relieved himself with every other word in the English language that started with that letter. r on Biior windows , said that the business men who were in favor of I Lrently overlooker! that fact ■ cusfc mci : plenty of on the sidewalks to look in the .^liop windows anil that the : j too cong rt( dto i ; window d ile if skyi era wi .; t p d.

The clirvrn- Tier of commerce therefore respectfully requests tho mayor and city council to amend the present building ordi nance bo far a:-< to permit such orna mentation of build in,tier proper limitations find conditions in addition to the present limit iv height of 180 feet." in a statement made last night Mr. Merritt said the building was to serve Its a. memorial lo his father, r>n mt thority on iron ores, and to house tho greatest mining club In t'ue world. He nxprossed tho opinion it would have been a great advertisement for Los Angeles—as valuable in that respect as the C;ill building has boon to San Francisco, He said that it is within the power of the. people to amend the ordinance and that if they want the structure and will p-ivo him ;m oppor tunity to build it, he will provide the money and proceed without delay.

WOMAN BORROWS ON NOTE; AMAZES HUSBAND IN COURT An amazed husband listened to tho story of hi* wife's duplicity In the. rfiirt of Justice Tlnird yesterday, when Mrs, H. C. Tl tel er admitted borrow ing money on a note, suit for the col lection of which Thacker had been called to answer, Thinking that some lit:. had been made in procuring service on him, Thacker -was dumfound when his wife arose in court and admitted that she had borrowed sums of money from time to time from M. P. Krikorian, a grocer, giving her husband's note therefor. She, said she needed tin money, but did not tell her husband of borrowing for fear of angering him. She hoped to pay the money back she said, when funds from a life insurance policy on which she had been paying began to accrue. This was another surprise for the husband. Tho note had been sold to a collect- ] ing agency and judgment was given for the amount sued for. with five ; day.-' stay of execution.

The theater was packed to the doors, fully half of. tho seats being occupied by children, It was a ■pedal chil dren's matinee of "Tho The performance was progressing smoothly when suddenly a Woman sit ting close to the stage Jumped from her seat, stumbled Into tho aislo and ran hysterically to the exit. For a moment there was pause. Then an uneasy rustling.' The gallery start ed to stampede and In the parquet crying children began an unreasoning scramble for safety. Other women started tor tho doors and then some one raised tho cry of fire. Tho chorus tried to drown the noise In the audience by singing as loudly as possible. Then Hartman made hts appearance. At once he realized what had happened, appreciated the danger, and in an instant ho contrived a solu tion. Turning to tho wings he called Ito his children. They answered their father's call and ho took them by the hand. '•There is no danger," he said. "None. Those are my children. I love them, ladies, Just as you love your children, and if there was danger I assure you I should try to get them out of the theater instead of holding them here on the stage." By this time Walter Da Leon and Muggins Davles had come on the stage. Smiling, they, too, reassured the terror stricken audience. In the audience itself men and wo men, cooler than their neighbors, de voted themselves to stilling the panic. Down in front one man pushed back into her Beat a fear-crazed woman who was struggling- to reach the aisle. Then he caught and held her little daughter, who was trying to climb over tho back of a seat on her way toward the door. Following Hartman's speech someone started to applaud. Th ■ ushers took I it up and in another moment the dan ger had passed. The chorus retired, De Leon and Muggins Davies began their duet and the performance was resumed. The trouble, so far as its source could be determined, originated with one woman who though;, she smelled smoke and who at once became fear i stricken. H. N.
