HE WAS HIS OWN DETECTIVE.
A Diamond Robbery for Which
No One Was Punished.
How the Suspected Person Managed
to Prove His Innocece.
A Case Where Circumstantial Evidence
Was Upset by a Well-Directed
Effort to Find the Person
Who Was Guilty.
The following story was told by a de
tective familiar with the matter to a
Herald reporter recently, and was
vouched for as an actual fact through
Some time ago tbe papers had consid
erable to cay about a diamond robbery
which occurred in ihiß city. The jew
els belonged to a well known lady of
this city, who had deposited them as
security for a loan she had negotiated
with a business firm. This firm was
composed of two partners, both respect
able men, and tbe brother of one part
ner was the bookkeeper aud trusted
man of the establishment. He was a
bright young man, oi good habite, and
was engaged to be married to a most
estimable young woman. This young
man and the two partners were the
only persons who knew the combination
to tbe safe in which the diamonds were
kept, and this safe had inside doors
which were locked by a key.
One of those kvs the young
man* carried on hia key ring,
the other bain,?, kept in the keyhole ot
the safe door, as this door was not in
tended as a res.stance to burglars, being
only of thin metal. Now when this
young clerk came to the office on the
morning of the burglary, he found on
opening the outer door that the inner
door was locked but tbe key was not in
its accustomed place. He took the du
plicate key out of bis pocket, opened the
door, and there in a pigeon hole reposed
the key that ought to hava been in the
keyhole. He at once knew that some
thing was wrong, and a quick inveßtiga
tion showed that the precious diamonds
which were tbere tne evening before
were gone. The memb rs of trie firm
Were summoned ami an investigation
was commenced. Every feature of the
caee pointed to tbe gui't of the young
clerk. He claimed an alibi aud estab
liehed it. The young woman he was
engaged to lived in a neighboring town,
and that evening he visited her
and staid all night at the houses, haring
a room with a brother of bis fiancee.
This brother was certain that the clerk
had not gone out of the room during the
night; it would have been possible for a
man to havo left that place, cay at lv
o'clock, driven to Los Angeles, opened
the safe and returned to the house again
before daylight, but as stated the clerk's
room-mate was positive he had not left
bis bed during the night. Notwith
standing the police and detectives main
tained that there could be no doubt
about the clerk's being the guilty man,
and oertainly no one else could be sus
pected. He knew the combination and
had the keys.
The young man could not prove his
i: nocence, but it was decided to let the
lor go and not to take auy further steps
in u.e matter. The clerk, however,
was frantic at bis position; he
knew he was innocent, but
it seemed as if he must always have the
Btigma of being a thief. However, he
eet to work as a detecti-e himeelf. He
thought out a theory that some one had
had a duplicate key made for that in
side door, and lie began a pilgrimage to
all the places in the city where it would
be possible to have a key made. At
first without success, but after several
days' bunt be discovered a tinker on
Los Angeles Btreet who, when shown
the key, eaid yes, he had made one just
like that for a gentleman a few weeks
before. The man had brought au im
preßßion in a piece of soap. No, he
could not remember the man's appear
ance exactly, but he would know him il
he saw him again.
The clerk was exultant. The tinker's
testimony waß.the first ray of light he
had seen in his trouble, and he asked
him to go to the office and tell what ho
knew about tbe key matter to the part
ners. The. locksmith consented, and in
a few mom nls they entered the place
of businesß and the new development
was listened v o eagorly by the partners,
and they shook hands with the clerk as
a token of their returning confidence.
"And can you not tell us anything
about tbe man who ordered that key?"
asked one of the partner*.
"No, I can't describe him, but I am
sure if I saw him I would recognize
bim," answered the locksmith.
As he completed his words the door
opened and in walked a young man who
waß a confidential friend of both part
ners, a young fellow who had had the
use of tbe office, and who was highly es
teemed by all the parties concerned. As
he entered the locksmith looked at.
him and said: "That's the man who
orkered the key from me."
Tbe newcomer turned pale and stag
gered. "I never took the diamonds.
It's a lie. I never took them," he
"None of us have mentioned dia
monds," quietly replied one of the
partners. The newcomer turned whiter
than before and faltered his way to a
"Now, why did you get the man to
make you a key to the inside door of my
safe, and how did you open the outside
door, and what have you done with the
diamonds?" continued the member ol
the film who had first spoken.
The young fellow stammered a few
incoherent words and then confessed
everything. He bad managed to learn
tbe combination of tbe safe by watching
closely when it was opened. Then one
day, while pretending to look at some of
bis own paoei's which were in the safe,
he took the key of the inside door out of
the keyhole in which il was, and press
ing it into a piece of eoap which he had
in hie pocket, ho got an impression oi

THAT REDUCTION OF SALARIES
Compensation of High School Teachers
Hero as Compared with Elsewhere.
The motion made by Mr. Buehler, in
the board of education last "Monday
night, to put back the salaries of the
high echool teachers to the old figure
which prevailed prior to the closing ses
sion of the old board, has created some
comment in educational circlea, and,
feeling it to be a matter of general im
port, a Hebald reporter was Bent out to
make inquiry as to the merits of the
caße. He went first to the office of the
city superintendent of common schools,
but Mr. Freisner was not in, so he had
a few words with Mr. Baker, the chief
clerk of the office.
"Mr. Baker, you were not present at
the meeting on Monday night, at which
Mrs. Huglies denied that the outgoing
board had increased the salaries of the
high school teachers. In reply to Mr.
Buehler, she eaid that a reduction had
been made for the Bake of economy
about a year ago, and the board merely
put them back to where they stood be
fore the reduction was made. Is that
"Yes," replied Mr. Baker, "that iB
all correct in the main. The teachers
had been hired at a certain figure and
their wages had been scaled off before
the expiration of the year for which
they had been hired. Mrs. Hughes'
resolution merely put them back to the
"Did Mrs. Hughes or any other mem
ber of tbe old board know that there
was a large deficiency in the echool
funds at the time they put the salaries
back to the old figure?"
"Oh yes, Mr. Frießuer had notified
them that thete would he a large defi
oiency, although be did not then be
lieve it, would go as high a, $10,000,"
Baii' Mr. Baker.
This was all the reporter wanted to
know. He then went in eearch of Mre.
Hughes, who was chairman of the teach
ers' committee in the old board. The
lady was Been at her cosy mansion in
St. James' park, and, on the reporter
making hia bußinc-sa known, the lady
"You see we had a ehrinkaee in val
ues here several years ago, and a diffi
culty in the collection of taxes for all
sorts of purposes In course of time
this shrinkage affected the echonlp as
well ds anything else, as the number of
school children waß constantly on the
increase, while the money for the eup
port of the schools was as constantly
diminishing in amount. About a year
ago the board resolved to economize in
every possible way and bo reduced the
salaries of all tbe high school
teachers except the principal and the
music teacher. Several of these teach
erß were offered better salaries to go
elsewhere but many of them had
acquired pleasant homes here and did not
care to leave. Tfiose who stayed by ua
were assured that whenever it could be
done their wages would be put back to
the old standard; and hence all of
them, so far as I know, have rendered
as good service for the reduced compen
sation as for their original salaries.
Hence the retiring board felt that as
they had worked nearly 18 inonthß at a
scale of compenßation 20 per cent lower
than they could have gotten elsewhere,
they were fairly entitled to have their
Balaries put back to the Btandard of
1890. Do you believe in cheap teach
ers'?" asked the lady.
The reporter replied he did not; he
thought that popular education was
one of those thiDga in which that which
is compensated the least is paid for the
"Very well," continued Mrs. Hughas,
"I am not afraid to go on record in this
matter. I believe in getting the best
teacherß one can get, more especially in
a high echool, which requires extra
care and study to qualify one for the
position of a teacher. You get cheap
teachers and your children come out of
school knowing a little of everything
and a good deal of nothing. But if you
want yourcliildren thoroughly schooled,
you mußt get teachers who have under
gone the requisite preparatory discipline
thenißelves. Mr. Kierultf, Dr. Boaland
other gentlemen on that board were of
the same opinion as myself as regarded
the reduction of salaries as only tem
porary. Hence they voted on the last
night of the old board to put them back
to the old scale. The present board is
composed of men having no experience
in any such matters; and one or two of
its members are there purely from mo
tives of speculation. Time will show
whether they or the old board most had
tbe interest of tbe schools at heart."
BOWERS AND SAN PEDEO.

Whispering Willie Bowers, it appears,
will not support the San Pedro harbor

withstanding hiß many promises made
before election to get all the money pos
sible for that project. The San Diego
Sun of Mqnday prints the following:
Mayor Sherman has a letter from Con
gressman Bowers, in anewer to the joint
resolution adopted by the council con
cerning Engineer Craigbill's report on a
harbor for Southern California. Mr.
Bowers says the matter will be referred
to the river and harbor committee of the
bouse. He expresses the opinion that
Craighill's report will not have great
weight, as the incorrect features will dis
credit the entire document. Mr. Bowers
says, however, that he is the accredited
representative in congrees of Los Angeles
aB well as San Diego, and it is his duty
to secure aid for an artificial harbor at
San Pedro if it can be secured. The let
ter will be transmitted to the council to
night. But Mr. Bowers will cease to
represent the Los Angeles district after
March 4tb. Thereafter he will repre

In Jim Marseko, the bootblack, Los

Italian home on the bay of Naples, and
whenever New York is mentioned Jim
emits a groan. He haß been away from
Los Angeles for over a year and re
turned about two weeks ago bringing
his wife and babies with him. Jim
formerly blacked boots in a barbershop
on First street. He waß very diligent,
always attending to business, and by
dint of hard work managed to save by
degrees several hundred dollars. Some
of this he sent to his wife in Italy.
Finally he found himself with $150
ahead, so he started for home. All went
well until he reacked New York.
A couple of men saw him at the depot
and asked if he wanted to find a hotel.
Yes, Jim wanted one. The men eaid tbey
owned one and would take him to it.
After walking him some distance they
finally got him into a dark alleyway and
proceeded to go through him. They
took his watch, $150 of hiß own money,
and some money entrusted to him by
Los Angeles parties, in all about $250.
In the ecullle Jim was severely cut and

At present he is the official Bhiner at

enough money to be able to laugh at his
experience with New York sharpers.

THE SINGLE TAX.
Mow the Principle Works at Hyatts
Washingtonians are watching with
interest the workings of a new economic
experiment wbich is being tried at Hy
ittsville, just outside the limits of tho
District of Columbia. Hyattsville, so
far as known, is the first place in the
world to put the single-tax system into
practical operation. Of course it is not
complete even there, for the Hyatta
villians are still subject to tariff taxes,
as well as to the general taxation of tbe
state. But all the local taxes of tbe
town are now levied on land values
alone, irrespective of improvements. The
first step towsrd tbe adoption of this
plan was taken two years ago, when
personal property was exempted from
taxation. This change was made by
general concent, and has worked so well
that nobody proposes to go back to the
old rule. But when the town commis
sioners last year determined to exempt
improvements on real estate as well,
there waß a row. The capitalist who
owned two acres of vacant land in the
center of tbe town and was holding
it for a rise, did not relish the idea of
paying as much in taxeß as a dozen
families that had built cottages on tbe
same amount of ground. An anti-single
tax party immediately sprang into ex
istence, and an indignation meeting was
called and resolutions adopted request
ing the commissioners to retreat or re-
Bign. They declined to do either, and
proceeded to collect the taxes under
the new syßtem. The next step of the
antis was an appeal to the courts, and
thia is Btill pending, although the first
judge who heard the case dismissed the
complaint, and the prospects of a re
versal of hie deciaion are not flattering.
Meanwhile the town has been prosper
ing. More buildings have been put up
there within the past six months than
in any similar period of its history. The
total revenuea have been largely in
creased, and at the same time the Bmall
hOßee-holdere have found their taxeß re
duced by from 25 to 75 per cent. But
the large land-holders are stilt unrecon
ciled, and are working industriously to
defoat the single tax commi'eioners at
the coming election in May. The ningle
taxers are equally active, and Hyattß

Tbe Herald has published tbe tacts

as Sec. 36, TIN,R9W, S. B. M. The
land waß settled upon aa state land, and

should have the chance to perfect their
The following communication gives
the situation from the point of view of
one of the Bettlers.
Editors Herald: As there have
been several dispatches sent out in re
gard to violence in the contest about
our section 36, I can say tbat as to our
Bettlers, wbile we have been exasper
ated almost beyond human endurance,
it ia our earnest intention to keep with
in the bounds of tbe law.
However, we aak. Have we not just
grounds for a righteous indignation?
Many of ua have lived upon this land
for years in the full faith that our Btate
title was as good a- the beet; and had
we known otherwise we would have
been only too glad to have had it recti
fied, if such proved to be tbe case.
And now a dispute arises between the
atate and the general government about
this title. Without the knowledge or
consent of the real owners some land
aharka,who have not the faintest shadow
of a moral claim upon our lands and
homes, are permitted to put a ding upon
them. The only inexcusable excuse
they could offer when they came and
demanded our homes wbb that if '"we"
had uot tiled upon them some one else
would. By the Game logic why should
"we" not go to tapping tills, breaking
banks and holding up railroad trains, for
if "we" don't do it some one else will.

of its citizens' homes, this stain upon
the social sentiment of our people, this
Bhame upon American civilization, to
pass without one word of public rebuke
to such marauders. Think of the old
homestead of that old father aud moth
er ; think of the home of your own crea
tion, tbe wife, tbe mother, tbe little
oneß, and what would be your mind it
some foreign despoiler should enter that
home for self-appropriation without your
knowledge or consent.
By united words, by resolution either
in mass or society meetings, let it be
known tbat men cannot enter the sacred
precinct of home for euch a nefarious
purpose without bringing down upon
their heads a public storm that will for
eve" relegate them both morally, social
ly, and in business, to the region of the
moles and the bats. Then again try pe
tition to our state assembly, for if tbere
ban been a mistake between the state
and general government, this ought by
all means be co rectified tbat the state
can confirm the title to the settlers and
real owners. Respectfully,
