A Cable Gripman Crushed

He Throws Himself in Front

Edward L. McWilliams, a gripman in
the employ of the Los Angeles Cable
Railway CcmpaiQr, committed suicide
yesterday morning in a sensational man
ner, by throwing himself in front of an
approaching train on the Los Angeles,
Glendale and Pacific or "Cross" road at
the Well-street crossing in Fast Los An
geles. McWilliams, who had been in
the cable company's employ since the
opening of the Downey-avenue line in
September last, was very popular with
his fellow-employees on account of his
genality and good humored disposi
tion, and his reputation with the com
pany was that of a sober, industrious
and reliable man. With these facts in
view it is somewhat difficult to account
for the unfortunate man's sudden mania,
although the method to which he re
sorted proves beyond a doubt that he
was moved by an uncontrollable in
fluence, which could be nothing less
Shortly after 10 o'clock yesterday
morning McWilliams was seen by Mrs.
E. M. Hamilton, residing at No. 141
North Lecouvreur street, East Los An
geles, as he was walking aimlessly along
the track of the Cross road. His actions
at that time were sufficiently strange to
attract that lady's attention, though in
what the strangeness consisted she was
subsequently unable to state. At 10.25
o'clock, Engineer M. I). Jacobs and Fire
man,l. E. Webster, of the Los Angeles,
Glendale and Pacific train, which is due
in this city from Pasadena at half past
10 o'clock, noticed McWilliams coming
leisurely down the Well-street hill
toward the track as their train ap
proached the crossing at the Glendale
junction curve. To the sur
prise of both men, McWilliams,
on reaching the foot of the hill,
stopped when within ten feet of the
track ; but as the engine drew near, lie
made a sudden rush forward as if to
jump on the pilot, and throwing his
arms up like a diver, pitched forward in
front of the locomotive and fell right
across the track. Engineer Jacobs im
mediately applied the air brakes and
stopped his train in almost its own
length, but the train had passed over
the body of the unfortunate man before
this could lie accomplished. The train
men and several passengers who saw the
occurrence ran back to the place where
McWilliams lay, but it was found that
he had been instantly killed, and the
train proceeded to its "destination. On
arrival in town the trainmen at once
notified the authorities of the occurrence,
and Coroner Meredith soon afterwards
took charge of tlie body and caused its
removal to the morgue.
The body of the unfortunate youth
was lrorribly mangled by the cars, his
chest being crushed in and his face
mutilated entirely beyond recognition.
In spite of the terrible appearance the
corpse presented, a large number of mor
bidly curious people visited the morgue
and inspected the remains during the
day. McWilliams was a native of Mis
souri, 28 years of age, and leaves a wife
and one child to bemoan their loss.
At 7 o'clock last evening Coroner
Meredith held an inquest upon the body
at the undertaking parlors of Orr &
Batch, at which Engineer Jacobs,
Fireman Webster, and a passenger
named Geo. Partridge testified to the
facts above recorded.
John Dix, a shoemaker residing at No.
48 Kuhrts street, East Los Angeles,
stated that McWilliams was his nephew,
and that he had been acting strangely
of late. He had not been working since
Thursday, but was taking a vacation for
a few days. Hj had been under the
Impression that somebody was working
against him, and that an attempt was
being made to poison him. Several
other witnesses were examined as to the
occurrence, and all corroborated the
railroad men's story; whereupon the
jury returned a verdict of suicide, in ac
cordance with the facts.
Mrs. White Has Her Collar-Bone
It is stated that yesterday morning
Mrs. Clayton White, who recently ob
tained a divorce from an attorney and
collection agent of that name, was as
saulted by her former husband in the
presence of a number of her immediate
neighbors, and received such injuries as
will incapacitate her from her house
hold duties for some time to come.
Mrs. White, who was a Miss Hanni
ford, married Clayton White some nine
years ago, and on Monday last she
secured a divorce on the grounds of
cruelty and failure to provide, White
offering no opposition to her suit. She
was also granted the custody of her two
children, a boy 7 years of age and a little
2-year-old girl, it being understood, how
ever, that their father should be per
mitted to call and see them. Yester
day morning White called at his former
wife's residence on the corner of Fickett
and Pennsylvania avenues, Boyle
Heights, presumably for this purpose,
but on gaining admission to the house
he taxed his wife with having been the
cause of their troubles, and after an un
pleasant scene it is stated that he drew
a pistol and flourished it about threaten
ingly. Mrs. White left the room and
went out on the lawn in front of the
house, whither White followed her.
He then struck her, knocking her down,
and as she rose again choked her almost
to insensibility. Several of her neigh
bors witnessed the affair, but as all were
women, none dared to interfere, and
White walked off, leaving his fainting
wife to take care of herself. Mrs. White
was picked up and carried to bed, when
it was found that her collar-bone was
broken in tw i pluces and that her right
shoulder and mm \\ ere terribly bruised
from the blows inflicted by her cowardly
ex-husband. Police burgeon Morrison
was telephoned for, and attended to the
lady's injuries, which were of a serious
nature and rendered her almost entirely

conduct, the result of which was that
Mrs. White positively refused
to swear to a complaint
against her assailant, claiming
that she knows him better than anyone
else and fears that he would do her some
more serious injury, should the matter
be made public. It is said that appeals
were made to two policemen to arrest
White by the neighbors, but that the
officers refused to interfere on the
ground that they were not authorized to
do so, without a warrant.

The Salt Lake Timet has the following,
i which will be read with interest: Some
very interesting and important rumors
concerning the future plans of the Union
Pacific are now in circulation. One is
to the effect that the company is nego
tiating for a long lease of the Central Pa
cific, and another is that the Union Pa
cific-Northwestern combination is to be
made more so,id by the election of Mar
vin Hughitt to the presidency of the en
tire combination. This is a very plaus
ible story. It is a well-known fact that
Vanderbilt is largely interested in the
Union Pacific and Northwestern, and
that it is his ambition to have a Vander
bilt system from New York to San Fran
cisco. The leasing of the Central Pacific
will complete the link. The Union Paci
fic, on the other hand, needs the
Central Pacific. If it secures that
| road it will be on a more independ
! ent ' basis in its attitude to the
: other roads which now or will form a
i junction with the Central Pacific at
I Ogden. The other roads, however, will
naturally endeavor to prevent this plan
; being carried out. as its accomplish
ment would place them at the mercy of
the combination. Meantime, so it is
reported, the Milford extension of the
Union Pacific will be stopped until
something definite is learned as to the
probable result of the negotiations now
said to be in progress. It is also rumored
that an order has been issued for the
temporary suspension cf work on the
Los Angeles extension. If all these re
ports are true, they show that there is
to be a lively railroad fight of consider
able magnitude with the Union Pacific
and Northwestern combination on one
side, and on the other the roads that are
interested in keeping the Central from
going into any alliance that would
naturally prevent fair treatment at the
Baccalaureate Sermon Preached by
Yesterday morning, an hour before
the time appointed, the college chapel
began to fill up with students and
friends who had come to hear the bac
calaureate sermon by President M. M.
Bovard. On the left side of the rostrum
was seated a choir, composed of Messrs.
j Rice, Hayes, Robinson, Daugherty,
Ross, Hall, Conaway and Lapham, with
| Mrs. Coe as pianist. Seated in a semi
j circle back of the choir were President
: Bovard, Dean Cherington,Profs. Whitted,
| Coe and Gray, Rev. B. B. Corey of Red
| lands and Dr. Matthew, pastor of TJni
| versify church.
Promptly at 11 o'clock a hymn was
announced, and after singing, Rev.
Corey led in prayer. Miss Leila Breed
then sang "My Redeemer and My Lord"
(Dudley Buck). Dr. Matthew read as
scripture lesson I Corinthians,lßth chap
ter. Dean Cherington made the an
nouncements for the remainder of com
mencement week, after which President
Bovard preached the baccalaureate ser
mon, taking for his text the fifth verse
of the first chapter of First Timothy :
"Now the end of the commandment
is charity out of a pure heart, and of a
good conscience and of faith unfeigned."
The following is a brief synopsis of
I understand that the word "end"
here means final cause, and that "com
mandment" is general and means the
word of God. It would then read "the
gospel is charity out of a pure heart."
The object of the commandment is that
men may live a true life and that it may
not be a failure, but a success. He
wanted to emphasize a "true life" more
particularly than usual, that this class
which is now to graduate may recall
each commencement Sunday, as the
years roll on. Without any prelim
inaries, he would call attention at
once to the need of a faith rooted and
grounded. The fundamental element is
the belief of the truth. It is not easy to
know all the truth. Some things we "can
never know, but the things that con
cern us largely are those we do not know
but believe. Paul says: "Faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the evi
dence of things not seen." The educa
t'on of this class is to enable them to find
out what is truth, and they ought to
have more settled faith than others who
have not had the advantages. They
ought to be all of unfeigned faith, one
that rests on testimony that we can be
lieve. The ground of unfeigned faith is
Belief enlarged till it is unfeigned
faith is the foundation of a true life.
The guide to a true life is a good con
science. It has sometimes been said
that a good conscience is one that is
free from pain on account of guilt. A
jioor one might be that. A good con
science is more than one void of offence,
ft means one that is a real benefit, that
will detect right quickly and feel wrong
keenly. We need nowhere more to fol
low the guiding of a first-class conscience
than in Southern California, and follow
it for Christ's sake. The good conscience
must come out of a pure heart, so we
must get the pure heart. This is an age
of charity but the motive can be
improved. It must come out of a pure
heart. The mistake that has been so
often made in this country in preaching
of a pure heart is that it is the end of all
things, (lod wants charity; God wants
loving deeds ; God wants from all these
people good fruits out of a pure heart,
not simply pure hearts.
The difficulty we have in keeping our
religion is not in telling of it, but in not
doing it. Only tell it to save and benefit
others. Use Christ as an example.
Every true life has a grand aim. He
then advised the senior class to spend
much time in reading God's word and in
prayer, and not make religion and right
living secondary to their business. A
hymn was then sung and the benedic
tion rfronounced by Dean Cherington.
Rev. B. C. Corey in the evening

NAMES OF NEGROES.
The Curious Nomenclature That Orig
inated in Plantation Life.
Of course on every plantation there
was several negroes of the same name,
and the negroes, who are apt at such
things, used various and peculiar sobri
quets to distinguish them. On my fa
ther's place there were An' Taller Liza,
An' Black Liza, and 'An Pop-eyed
Liza, and Unker Big Jake,
linker Little Jake and Unker Knock
kneed Jake. There were in one family
three generations of Bens, all pos
sessed of a physical or mental in
firmity. The old man, who had been
kicked in the head by a mule, was crazy.
He spent his days and pretty nearly all
his nights standing under a broad china
tree preaching of the judgment day. He
was Unker Fool Ben. His son, a mid
dle-aged man, afflicted with an ulcer that
made him lame, was Unker Hoppin'
Ben. The grandson, who trembled with
j the palsy, and, besides, was simple
minded, was Unker Chilly Ben.
Though able-bodied, he was never re
quired to do any work, and wandered
about the place without let or hin
At the close of the war a large major
ity of the Southern negroes assumed the
name of the family to which they be
longed, getting it fearfully twisted some
times, as, for Instance, Grim for Gra
ham, Baskey for Arowbaski, etc. Some
went back in search of names to their
former owners in Virginia or Carolina,
who had either lost them through debt
or raised them to be sold to the negro
speculator, who brought them further
south to be sold again to work
the cotton and rice plantations.
In this way you will now find
the grandfather of a family bearing the
name of his old master in Virginia, the
j son that of his owner at the close of the
war, while the grandson assumes some
fanciful name suggested by circum
stances. So I know an old man calling
himself Jim Sanders. His son is Jim
James Jr. There is not, nor ever has
been a Jim James Sr. His son, again, is
Jim Grandson. Upon the plantations
you still occasionally come across the
once familiar names of Sambo, Cuflee,
Dinah, Sukey, etc., but very rarely even
there. Grandisons, Mortimers, Leilas,
Natalies, etc., have taken their places.
Bible names, with explanatory pre
fixes and suffixes, are great favorites
among the devout portion of the negro
community. The man who works my
garden is King David Jonsing. My

dain with his own hands to minister to
his necessities. Besides these, I num

Potash as a Fertilizer.
Excepting pears and winter apples,
nearly all kinds of fruit succeed as well
or better on light soil than on that
which contains more clay. For peaches,
plums and cherries sandy soil is
especially adapted. The only caution
needed in growing these" fruits is
to make the lands rich, and to
supply large amounts of mineral
fertilizers. The stone fruits are es
pecially greedy for potash, and if wood
ashes cannot be readily obtained, the
potash salts furnish a "good substitute.
In forming the seeds of any fruit, as in
ripening the fruit itself," potash is in
dispensable. Lack of this or other
mineral elements retards the fruit in
ripening, and often, after standing still
for one or two weeks for want of ma
terial to develop the fruit, it crops to
the ground. Lack of mineral plant food
is probably the original source of
grape mildew and rot, though once es
tablished it flourishes under almost any
conditions. Most cases of grape mil
dew originated in vines whose vitality
was weakened by overbearing. But ex
cept when boughs break through being
too heavily loaded, there is no such
thing as overbearing that does not mean
a rather insufficient supply of plant
food for nature to perfect the fruit it has
set and undertaken to ripen.—[Ameri
Invention of the Compass.
The valuable invention of the compass
is involved in mystery, and its real dis
coverer is unknown". Laliteau, in his
history of the Portuguese discovery of
the new world, says that Vasco" da
Gama brought it to Lisbon from the
coast of Africa on his return from
Melinda, where the Arabs then used it,
and he believed the Portuguese to have
been until then ignorant of it.
Some attribute it to Flavia Gioia, of
Amalphia, about the year i:>o2;
while others again are of the opinion
that the invention is due to the Chinese,
and that one of their emperors, a cele
brated astrologer, was acquainted with
it eleven hundred and twenty years be
fore the christian era; nor have others
again been wanting who supported the
opinion that it was known in the time
of Solomon. The ancient Greeks and
Romans are also supposed by some to
have used it, but the silence of their his
torians on this subject renders this state
ment doubtful.—[New York Ledger.

This resort is now open for the summer under a
new management. The house has been put in
perfect order, and we are prepared to insure
the comfort and pleasure of all guests. The
island is too well known for its own unparul
' leled attractions in the way of climate, fishing,
| bathing, scenery, etc., to call for extended com
ment here. The culinary department will
| have special care, and good cooking will be the
prime object of the new management. The
dining-room is large, well ventilated and will
be kept in perfect order. Terms reasonable.
