LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 1905.
COMPRISE SIXTY-FIVE PER
CENT OF VISITORS
Railroads Gather Statistics Showing
New Facts In Regard to Passen
gers Bound for Southern
Sixty-five per cent of the tourists
who conic to Los Angeles every winter
are women. This is a minimum per
centage taken from the records cover
ing two years and made at the request
of an official of one of the transconti
nental railroads. The figures for the
first part of the tourist season show
that three-fourths of tho number of
tourists arc women, but as the season
continues tho percentage falls. There
is no reason to believe that statistics
collected on the other roads entering
Los Angeles would differ materially
from those now at hand.
The explanation given by the offi
cials of the road is that eastern, busi
ness men do not have the time or op
portunity to make the California trip,
but send their wives and families.
Many later come westward and return
home with their families after a few
days' sight seeing.
The result of these purely economic
conditions shows Southern California
to have a far larger number of women
residents In proportion to men during
the winter season than at any other
Why a railroad should wish to know
the percentages of sexes that it car
ries from the east to the Pacific coast
is a mystery to the larger number of
persons. Through the statistics col
lected, however, small innovations,
unnoticed by the average man, but ap
preciated by the gentler sex, were put
into effect, liberally advertised anil
brought with them a satisfactory in
crease In patronage.

SHEER DARING IN
BEAUMONT ROBBERY PUZZLE
Suspects Arrested, but Officers Are
Not Ready to Divulge Clews
Nothing in the criminal annals of
Los Angeles of the hold-up variety
equals the Heaumont cafe robbery. It
is unique for being neatly and care
lessly carried out.
Tho bold hold-up men got away with
between $250 and $300 after invading a
crowded cafe, and escaped under the
broad glare of electrlo lights, with one
of tho attaches yelling for police aid
and the robbers covering their retreat
with tho firing of pistol shots.
Nothing more up-to-date, spectacular,
even bizarre could be Imagined in the
line of desperate robberies. The entry
of the men whs bold to rashness. They
parted the swinging doors with a
bluster Hnd bluff. ' They wore noisy,
even stormy. They swept things bo
fore them. Their monks were adjusted
and their pistols glittered. They had
their faces protected, but they could
not conceal the fact thnt they were
new in the hold-up business. They won
by pluck nnd boldness and after tak
ing desperate chances. Experienced
police offlrerH, nfter a careful analysis
of the case, wonder at the desperate
courage of the men.
Tho officers' are convinced that the
men were amateurs inasmuch us they
left all approaches to the plnce un
protected and entered the cafe with
bluff and bluster. Professionals are
more prosaic. They do things accord-
Ing to rules and prescribed ethics. They
never leave any gates oppn behind
them, any room for a surprise, and be
sides they work as noiselessly as pos
Chief Hammcl, Capt. Bradlsh and, In
fact, the entire detective force Is in
terested in tho capture of the men.
Whether professionals or amateurs,
they are regarded as dangerous men
by the detectives.
Several arrests were made yester
day. If the officers have any theory
they are saying little.
Chief Hammcl last night would pot
say what clews had come into the
hands ot the department. The
officers have some theories , which
they are working out, but for the
time they do not care to discuss them.
They believe they will ultimately get
the right men.
HUTTON DENIES CHARGES

Jury With Much Valuable

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26.—Attor
ney Hutton, who was removed from
the office of police commissioner by
Mayor Schmitz yesterday on the
ground of immorality, strongly denies
the charges against him. He declares
that irregularities in his private life,
even if true, which he does not admit,
have nothing to do with his official
standing. He says that, though out
of touch with the mayor, he has been
in a position to obtain much informa

the grand jury. For several hours
today he was in communication with
the police committee of that body and
it is asserted detailed many facts in

and disreputable interests which he
said were behind his removal from
