CORONER PROBING
DEEP MYSTERY
FINDS NEW THEORY IN OCEAN
PARK CASE
SUICIDE - MAY V BE SOLVED
Woman Whose Body Is Unidentified
May Have Been a Quest at the
Westminster Hotel in Los .
Angeles
Was the woman , whose body whs
found no'atlnu In the surf off Ocean
Park Sunday, the same one who won
taken ill at th» Westminster hotnl a
few weeks atfo, and when she had p.ar
tlally recovered was found to be In
destitute circumstances?
This is the queHtlon that Is puzzling
Coroner Trout and the authorities Juat
now.' If their theory is correct there
is doubtless a pathetic Btory back of
the case, which now appears to be
shrouded in deepest myntery.-
"Mrs. Webster, professionally Maria
Stone.',' These ore the two "names
under 'which the unfortunate woman
who stopped at the hotel was known.
A letter written to the postmaster of,
a near-by town, to the for
warding of certain mail, wan returned
to the local hotel a' few days ago and
bore the above signature.
Descriptions' Closely Tally
Manager R. W. Larlatt of the West
minster gave Coroner Trout a descrip
tion of Mrs. Webster, or Maria Stone,
yesterday, and It Is said to have tal
lied with that of the corpse found at
Ocean Park. A gold tooth on the left
side of Mrs.^Webster's mouth ans
wers to the "''lescrlptlon of the one
in the, mouth of the deceased. ■
About six weeks ago Mrs. -Webster,
or. ■, Marie Stone, engaged apart
ments j at the Westminster.
The second day she! was there she
was taken 111, and "so serious was her
condition that It became necessary to
summon, a trained nurse to' her bed
side. For about four, weeks the wo
man lay suffering from her affliction,
but It is said she spoke very little of
her life.' No one seemed to know just
who Bhe^was, but the clerks say she
was a woman of rare culture and re
finement. . .
Relates Sad Story
'.When- ..the j woman had j partially . re,
coyered she Haw Proprietor Frank
Johnson of.the hoteland explained to
him- her. strained circumstances. She
told , him tearfully, that she had not a
dollar ■ In . the world ,i and knew, not
where to ] get one. . She owed a' large
bill, but could not pay it. : : Mr. John
son, considering the unfortunate condi
tion of the woman, < said 'he would
make everything alright and for her
not to worry. Manager .. Larlatt then
secured quarters for her In a house on
Sixth street, It is said,' and ' since noth
ing has been heard of her. „ . .■ .'■;..
Last night Larlatt declined to dis
cuss the case. He said he preferred
to await developments.. He said the
woman' left the hotel In a cab and that
he did- not; know where she j had gone.
Asked if he had not found a home for
her on. Sixth street he refused to
answer.
Looks Like Suicide
' From all accounts it appear* that the
woman' went to the Sixth street place,
however, at Larlatt's suggestion, • and
his action in taking up the case. with
the coroner leads to the*; belief ; that
she ; mysteriously 'disappeared from
there. It is regarded as very; probable
that the left the -place, whlle^ln a fit
of despondency, and went' to ;. Ocean
Park for the deliberate purpose of end-
Ing her life..
v According to Coroner Trout, 1 the body
of the woman found at Ocean. Park had
evidently/ been In | the water , four : or
five 'days, as it was badly decomposed
when discovered.. The remains will be
buried at j Ocean Park by Undertaker
Ouldlnger today. ' < ,
■'• Yesterday afternoon Coroner Trout
received word from W. H. Robinson of
gan Luis Oblspb, who telegraphed to
him' that there was a probability ' he
could clear up the mystery, that he had
since found whom he feared was the
suicide.

'RECALL' IS LOOSE;

OFFICIALS THREATENED WITH
"PEOPLE'S WEAPON"
NORTON AFTER COUNCILME
Persistent Rumor on the Btreets and
In the City Hall That a Petition
Is to Be Circulated— Strohm
-
Case Mentioned
The "re^M" Is loose nftnln.
That bee 1 which buzzed »o pemlstent
ly In the ears of Sixth 'war voters was
In evidence yesterday.
AmonK those slated by rumor for a
visit from the ; "people's -weapon" is
Owen McAleer, mayor of Ijos Angeles,
and several councllmen. ,
• Mr. McAleer says It In a ghnstly Joke.
He declares he has not even heard the
buzz of the bee. Uut on the streets
and about the city hall there was a
general belief that something had gone
wrong, either in the Sixth ward or:in
the councils of the Good Government
league, and that In reality a recall pe
tition would be circulated.
Decapitation of Chief Strohm, al
leged ' unfriendliness to the Foster
alarm sjkem nnd a belief on the part
of the Merchants and Manufacturers'
association that the mayor heeded not
the requests of that organization arc
given as causes for the mysterious
buzzing of the Sixth ward bee.
Threatens Council
K. H. Norton, president of the Good
Government league and leader of the
Davenport recall, declared last evening
that while he knows nothing of an at
tempt to recall the mayor, there is like
ly to be something doing in that line
with one or more of the councllmen.
/"I don't know anything about the
rumor that an attempt will be made to
recall Mayor McAleer," said Mr. Nor
ton, "but I do know that unless some
members of council look out something
Is likely to drop pretty soon."
Mr. JJorton said j there are' several
Important ; questions, affecting the mu
nicipal government to come up at the
next regular meeting of the Good Gov
ernment leafjue, but he declined jto di
vulge i their nature.- He Intimated,
however, .that^tbe.' council will come In
for a good share of the proceedings.".
."Our organization," continued Mr.
Norton, Is now Incorporated under the
state , laws, and we are well prepared
to -meet "all emergencies. We do not
propose to undertake a contest of any
kind with our eyes closed. ■■. When we
start something- we usually know
where we stand. ' There is nothing- that
succeeds so well as success, and such
is our motto."
Mayor Laughs
The mayor laughed .■ heartily when
told of the rumor.. He asked what' the
occasion for all this Is and said -he in
no wise considers it serjously.
"I ; cannot understand '■; how such a
rir/iorvcould have started,"; said the
mayor. ■ "There can certainly be -no
foundation for ' it. It's simply a huge
Joke. „'. ( „
','What ground do they base their al
leged proceedings on?", asked the
mayoi , and he was reminded of the
Strohm incident : and ° the Broadway
lighting case."--
: "Oh," he said,' "so far as the Strohm
case is concerned there can be no com
plaint. - There were numerous com
plaints and .charges we might have
brought up. As for the Broadway light-
Ing question,; that has been settled
satisfactorily." . . .
BROKEN BEAM THE CAUSE
Inquiry Shows Negligence In Brooklyn
Church Catastrophe
By Associated Press.
I NEW YORK,' Feb. 28.— A searching
investigation was begun today by the
county and borough authorities of
Brooklyn to ascertain the cause of the
collapse of the floor of the Fleet Street
African Methodist Episcopal Church' of

killed and upward of fifty injured.
.It was ascertained today that the
cause of the collapse was the breaking
of a heavy beam supporting the floor
and running lengthwise of the church
near the south wall. Under the weight
of the great number of people gathered
above It snapped ■ squarely In two mid
way between the front and rear of the
church. ;.'.'.. v • : ■ . ■ ' '■•'.•'■'

By A m'«' ln t •»! Pt»s»,
RENO, Nev., Feb. 28.— William Woods,
sometimes known as "Red" Woods,
was lynched at Huzen at an early hour
this morning.; Woods, wltha compan
ion, attempted to hold up D. A. Wise
and James Wallace near the passenger
depot last;' night Agent Ferguson
heard the calls for help from the vlo
tlms and rushing out scared oft the
highwaymen, who took flight. Fer
guson pent five shots ufter them and
succeeded In bringing Woods to a halt.
The , prisoner was taken to the town
Jail, a. wooden structure.
His arrest caused the people of the
town to urlse in arms and as the night
advanced their anger beoume unman
ageable. Deputy Sheriff Allen cau
tioned coolness, but his entratles were
In vain. f. It j waa after 2 o'clock when
the crowd, by " this ' time . thoroughly
organized, marched to . the Jail. 'An
axe and a sledgehammer were used'ln
bursting open the door and soon Wood,
trembling with fear, was dragged from
the jail.
No formalities were used. He was
led and carried to the nearest telo
graph pole.' A rope was thrown over
the crossarm and in' a moment the
fellow was swung into the air. The
free end of the rotfe was then fastened,
the mob dispersed and it was after 3
o'clock this morning before the people
found the body.
A coroner's Jury wns summoned, a
verdict of death by hanging by un
known . parties returned and by noon
the body was interred in theHajspn
