SANTA ROSA. Jan. IS. — J. B. Jorz
lias been dismissed after long years of
service af= assistant station agent here
for the Southern Pacific, ostensibly for
using office stationery for private cor
respondence, but in reality, according
to his friends, because of his anti

of high license as more effective than
pt inhibition. In gathering material for
his argument lie addressed the brewers'

War. on Disreputable Places
Now Doing Business
The directors of the California state
brewers' association met yesterday af
ternoon in their offices in the Humboldt
Bank building to consider measures to
place the retail liquor business upon a
higher phine. The suggestion was of
fered and favorably received that steps
be taken to rid the industry of disrep
.utable characters and objectionable
places. It was proposed that this be
done by withholding financial aid from
all questionable establishments and by
assisting the authorities to punish vio
lators of the law. . • !
The association resolved to advocate
all measures tending to uplift the
moral tone of the retail trade so as to
create and foster a more favorable
sentiment in the community toward the
brewing industry. * To this end the

Exploited Against Will "*
In speaking of the efforts made by
the laws and others to commercialize
his work, Burbank said:
"I am exploited whether I am willing
or not, and very much against my own
wishes in the matter. Does, it pay to
exploit commercially a proposition
which does not. stand on a sound basis
of character and' value?"
. Burbank' answered' the j criticism of
his lack of originality in the develop
ment of the -.spineless cactus by saying:
."At the time of the introduction of
.the first of my spineless cactus—opun
tla—^-nearly three, years ago, the fol
lowing words occupy the fli'st place in
the catalogue:
"'For 'more than 50 years I- have
been quite familiar with "thornless
cactus" of many .species and 'varieties.
In fact, one of the first: p<*cs> which I
had in^ earliest childhood was a thorn

.-"The phyllbcactys and imany of the'
cereus family, are also thornless, not a
trace to be found on any part of the
plants of fruit.,
Thornless Cactus Common
"'Thus the somewhat Indefinite pop
ular . name "of "thornless cactus" . has
been ".used, by, persons -unacquainted
with these facts, for be it \ Known that
the "thornless cactus". Is no more of! a.
novelty than; a "thornless". watermelon.
But among tire cacti which grow to an
immense size "with great rapidity and
which can be readily cultivated^ in gar
den, field or?desert-no perfectly thorn
less ones were known and very little
interest taken in the cacti of any;-klnd,
either thorny or thornless. As to.their
agricultural or horticultural, value.'un
til the work of improvement was. taken
up in -my experiment farms and'- im
proved, perfectly thornless, rapid grow
ing varieties had been produced and
made known within. the last few years.'
"The facts in the case are too well
known to need comment,". he added.
"Let some one even now mention a
single absolutely; thornless cactus of
agricultural value produced by anybody
or, not produced on my. own i grounds.'.'

Paulhan rose to the pecasion. With
out any announcement his machine ap
peared on the far west course, beating
against, the wind. It came around and
overthe heads of the crowd with the
wind at a speed of 60 miles an hour.
"The Frenchman, the Frenchman;
he's a darling:" yelled s*me.
\u25a0 : "He's a fool," said' others. •
Paulhan came down as though he had
decided against "further flying, but be
fore the crowd had time to forget their
first wonder he came over their heads
again and pointed the flat nose of his
big white plane toward the mountains.
It was 3:09 o'clock.
"He's off for the cross country record
of the world," announced the- mega
Then^what a' craning and stretching
in the restless crush. The ushers were
powerless. .
Heads* for Mountain
For .10 minutes the machine flew
onward and upward, straight toward
the snowline 6t the Sierra Madre 1 range.
Old Baldy peak was the compass point.
It lay in shining white relief against
the greenish sky behind it.
Over the foothills hung a dark, haze.
Paulhan disappeared from the unaided
sight of the spectators when he reached
this bank. Through the glasses he
could be seen rising over the haze and
taking; a canyon t^rail, as it looked, to
the summit, f Soon -he disappeared from
all sight of those on the field.
. Bulletins were sent out and posted
on a blackboard as the machine passed
over the various small towns on the
way to the Baldwin. racetrack.
"He's over Arcadia now," came from
the megaphone.
'.'He'll be In another Arcadia soon if
I am not mistaken," said a pessimist,
gazing toward the silent places of the
hills. ;-;\u25a0/:
Airship Seen Returning
At 4 o'clock there was a great shout.
Some one had seen the airship again.
Soon it came into sight, blown from its
outward course and on a line with
.Mount "AVilson..
To the eye it rose above the moun
tains, and there was a cry that Paulhan
had gone a mile high. It looked as
though an eagle had come out of its
home in the crags and was hunting for
an evening meal in the barnyards of
the valley.
The machine became more and more
plain- and even the- experts watching
and timing were surprised at the speed
with' which it returned. Mr."- Bishop
figured that It would take Paulhan
twice as long to come back as It had
to go against the high wind. The
aviator had struck a milder current in
the high altitude and was coming home
on this.
Soon he was over the field and set
tling gently. The Frenchman received
his reward when he stepped stiffly out
of the saddlo and as»ked for a cigar.
"I will go twice as far some day,'
he promised.

Leo Slezak
The Prince oj all Grand. Opera \Tenars
now, sings^for.the
Edison Phonograph
THf big feature of the Grand Opera season in New York *
is the wonderful voice of the great lyric tenor, Leo Slezak, |
of the -Metropolitan Opera House. Not since the days
when Nordica shone forth as the brightest star among the Wag^
nerian prima donnas has such a sensation occurred in the musical
world as the first appearance of this great tenor, in the role of
Verdi's Otello. _\_ M^HP -" '
The fact that Slezak has made ten new Records for the
rEdison Phonograph, mak.es it not only possible for those who|
• cannot afford Grand Opera prices to hear this wonderful voice,!
but no matter where you live this peer of all lyric_ tenors b'
. » within your reach. __
Slezak sings for the Edison Phonograph the~same great anas*
from the Italian Operas that have made him famous in America— |
and our contract with him is practicalljr'exclusive, covering the
'songs to be sung during his American engagement- __
I - • Slezak Records are all Amberol. Amberol Record* play longer than
any other Records made, so that only on Amberol Records do you get
Grand Opera as it should be pbyed, without hurrying or omitting. 4 And.
only on the Edisott Phonograph do you get Amberol Records.
