Shakespeare Club Works for Juvenile Courts Roberts Reception. PASADENA. Office of The Times. No. 29 South Raymond avenue, June 18.

The fact that. Col. G. G. Green 'has postponed one year the building of his handsome annex to Hotel Green on Recount of the elevated prices of labor and material, should serve as an object lesson to the unions and other combinations which are partially responsible for the prices.

Col. Green planned to have the work started several months ago, but a letter received yesterday by Manager J. H. Holmes contains the Information that work on the lean-to of three hundred rooms will not begin till this fall, when it will be begun slowly, the colonel figuring that gradually prices will drop. It Is proposed 10 nave me new House finished In time for the season of 1903-4.

Col. Green made a careful examination of the steel and other material situations throughout the East, and taking Into account the big wages demanded by all kinds of artisans here, to delay the work. Now, here Is where, in the minds of the men who build hotels and things, the unions make the mistake: Prices have been placed high that when they drop they will fall a long way, and somebody's head will be cracked. Hotel builders talk of importing labor, and even if they don't do this, the reputation of this section as paying great wages will induce cheap lahor to come in. The contractors declare that they are willing to.

pay reasonable wages and say nothing about it, but the extreme existing is bound to cause trouble for the extremists. "I bave been talking with Contractor Slavln and with several architects," said Manager Holmes of the Green yesterday. "Slavin tells me that he is paying his mortar-mixers on the Potter Hotel at Santa Barbara f3 per day. I understand that bricklayers demand $8 a day, and that the workmen on Slavin's contract are about to hold a meeting for the raising of wages still higher. A man who is about to erect a hotel in Pasadena, containing 120 rooms, figured that tt would cost him about $50,000.

When he asked me what It would cost him, 1 without knowing the figure he had in mind, said $125,000. He said he wouldn't stand that. He asked an architect the same question, and was told that tne nouse would cost him between $125,000 and $150,000. Material Is up the same way, steel and bricks, etc. Steel is me worsi.

sieei is quoted now at about $120 per ton. We paid less than $30 per ton for the steel In the old buildings. We simply figured that the 1 profits from the annex for this year "would not balance the extra coot of building, and decided to delay the building until the season following. So it may be easily figured, even hy a union man with one-third of an eye, that the inflated wage standard is a losing game in the long run. In the mean time, work In rearranging the Interior of the present house Is going ahead, looking to better accommodations for greater Hotel Green.

The elevator in the east building Is being removed, 'and soon partitions will be taken out to provide a bigger corridor. Col. Green has just finished a new hotel In Woodbury, N. J. FRACTIOUS AUTO.

Bralnard Dewey of Congress street had an exciting experience with his Oldsmoblle a night or two ago, and he Is still wondering why ha wasn't killed, and "Ms vehicle smashed into Old Iron. Everybody knows how steep the Eagle Rock road is where It winds over Scovllle Hill on the west bank of the arroyo, a mile west of town. A fly would need grappling irons to stick on It In some places. Dewey was coming down the hill at a rattling pace, when his controller got the better, or worse, of him, and before he knew what was doing, away they flew, first into space, and then, bumping down the sides of a precipice half a hundred feet In height. But young Dewey hung onto the rudder, or whatever they call it, and dodged trees and stone successfully.

The rubber tires clung to the side of the precipice, and the vehicle kept right side up. The chaff eur was not hurt, and the mobile was only slightly bruised. Dewey gathered himself together and went home. In the morning he got up early and reported the damage to Hodge who got out a big auto, some tackle and pulleys, and hauled the fractious Oldsmoblle to the trpR JTJVKNILB COURT. At the regular meeting of the City Council yesterday a communication was received from the ladies 'of the Shakespeare Club, urging the establishment in this city of a juvenile court.

The communication was as follows, and was referred to the committee of the whole: "At a regular business meeting of the Shakespeare Club held on Saturday, June 7, It was voted that the secretary write to the Mayor and City Council, calling attention to the action taken by several eastern municipalities In establishing- the so-called juvenile courts, in which young offenders may, be tried without bringing them in contact with hardened criminals; where, so far as possible, they may be kept under the care of special officers; their offenses tried behind closed doors; where, when practicable, they may be given indeterminate sentences, dependent upon future good behavior, and kept under the personal supervision of an official, to whom they report at stated Interval "The Shakespeare Club respectfully asks the Mayor and Council to Investigate the workings of these juvenile courts, which have proved so satisfactory In Chicaeo and other eastern cities In reducing the ratio of juvenile crime, and they also respectfully request them to take any stops which in their judgment may seem advisable toward modifying the present arrangements under which juvenile offenders are tried In our courts. "The. combined Child Study Circles rf Pasadena, represents several hundred parents have assured us of hearty Indorsement of this artlon of the Phekespeare club, in bringing to the consideration of your honorable body, and we have the approval of the leading educators of the city."

When the subject of the purchase of water-bearing land came before the City Trustees last night, two propositions were awaiting their consideration. W. W. Lowe offered lot 7 of the American Colony tract for $1800, and the Palos Verdes Company offered lot 44 In the same tract for $1500.

Glass-bottom Boat Nearly Forty Feet Long, and Capable of Carrying Many Passengers, Launched Yesterday Large Catch of White Sea Bass. AVALON. June 17. The big mast for the wireless telegraph plant Is in place and secured. It stands 155 feet out of the ground, and as the location of the plant Is 370 feet 'above the nea, the top of the mast stands 575 feet above sea level.

There are no Instruments of any description on the mast-nothing but an ordinary insulated wire extending from the top down and Into the station, where it connects with the receiving apparatus. The height of the mast above the sea level cuts little figure, further than It seems to be necessary to have a wire extending at least 150 feet In the air to be able to properly receive messages, and the mast is for the purpose of holding this wire. The engine and dynamos were set In motion yesterday and ran like a top. It now -only remains to get the delicate machinery properly adjusted and "tuned" to vibrate with that of ths shore station at White's Point, which may require several days of experimenting before it will be possible to flash messages across the channel. BIG GLASS BOTTOM.

The inventor of the water-glass scarcely foresaw that his simple glass in the bottom of a box would, in the process of evolution, be made to do duty as the bottom of a boat. That was accomplished some years ago, but today marked another era of progress when- William Gurlns and M. Tobln launched a glass-bottom boat thirty-eight, feet long and seven feet four Inches beam and capable of seating nearly sixty persons. The boat was built at Mathewson's yards here, is a side-wheeler, the paddle wheels being five and a half feet in dlnmster. There are two "wells," eah ten feet long, in the center of the boat, through which one looks down Into the depths of the sea and has a slx-horse-power engine.

The launching drew great crowds to the beach this afternoon, and it was done in first-class style, Miss Aurelia Gurins, after a little speech, breaking a bottle of champagne over Its bow and floating out a pennant bearing the name, "Mo-naml." TUNA. ALL LUCKY. The tuna are having all the best of it this year. They have succeeded in keeping out of the way of the angler for the most part, and when they have taken a bait, so far, they have come off masters of the situation. After Judge Beaman's four-hour experience yesterday a number of anglers scoured the ocean In the vicinity of his fight, but one, H.

W. Lance, getting a strike. Mr. Lance fish was Inseeurelv hooked and the hook tore out after five minutes of fighting. This morning Col, Stearns, who caught the big 197- pounder In March, had a strike and was getting on beautifuHy with his fight when a shark cut the line and caused the colonel to lose the tuna.

When the fish struck the bait, a flylng-flsh, was forced up the line some fifty or sixty and when In reeling in, it came to the surface, a big shark made a rush for it. George Johnson, the-colonel's skipper, saw the movement and seizing a gaff hook impaled the shark, but not before tt had snapped the lino and released the tuna. RECORD FISH -CATCH. The record fish catch of the season was brought In this morning by Mars-den Landers and, William Morgan with the Nestella. They went to the Isthmus yesterday afternoon Intending to go around the Island today, but getting into a school of white sea bas this morning, they gave uo the trip and turned their attention to the fish.

They had twenty-two white Sea bass, many of which weighed forty pounds, and the average waa above thirty-five pounds. Miss Eva Durkee of Denver this morning caught six white sea bass and two rock has Mrs. L. Patterson of Mankato, caught two white sea bass. Miss Catherine Millers, the guest of Gen.

The Coliseums were 183 pins to the good last night, the total score standing 2535 to 2412. Without exception, the members of the winning team bowled in good form and steadily from the first ball to the last.

FREIGHT TROUBLE. The board passed a resolution In reference to the freight conditions here. No provision has been made for freight which arrives for local shippers, over either of the railroads. It is left in the cars and the merchants are greatly Inconvenienced procuring it, as the cars are constantly moved.
