the representative of his road at the
conference and although the question
has a large local significance. Assis
tant General Freight and Passenger
Agent Parkyns will not be present.
J. Ross Clark said yesterday that it
was his belief that the dispute would
be settled satisfactorily to all parties
concerned. Railroad officials, who ad
mit they are not on the inside, express
themselves as doubtful of the outcome.
They say that if the Salt Lake is per
mitted to use the switching tracks of
the Southern Pacific the privilege will
be gained only' by paying a large sum

POLICE ARE WATCHING HIM
Fashionably Attired Young Man and
His Smart Equipage Cause Many
Complaints, and Women Ask
for Protection •
Beware of the Broadway "masher."
For the past several weeks com
plaints have been made to the police
of a young man who nightly par
ades Broadway,' making eyes at women
and girls who have- occasion to be on
that thoroughfare at a late hour of the
The young man was N first noticed
about three weeks ago. He rented a
horse and runabout and slowly drove
along the west curbing, watching the
women as they passed up and 'down
before the windows of the large depart
Regularly at 9:30 o'clock each even
ing the man made his appearance un
til he came under the notice of an of
ficer on that beat. The officer fol
lowed and the result was interesting.
Mr. Masher slowly drove along the
curb ' until he espied a fair young
woman coming toward him. Then he
leaned out his runabout and said. "Ex
cuse me, you have dropped your hand
kerchief." The girl turned and saw
no handkerchief, but the "masher"
had been right in his speculation and
he and his new friend were soon driv
ing away together.
Masher Is Mashed
Several nights ago the "masher" met
his match. He reached a position about
midway between Second and Third
streets on Broadway when he espied a
coy young woman standing at the
curb with her back to the street. Here
was the opportunity of a lifetime and
while the woman's face could not be
seen because of the shadow and be
cause of a heavy veil, the "masher"
considered the fine apparel and the
petite figure and resolved to make a
"Want to take a ride, little girl?"
The "little girl turned and stepped
Into the runabout before the astonished
young man had a chance to assist her,
and as the couple drove away the pe
destrians chuckled. .
Further down the street the young
woman nestled over to her friend and,
raising her veil, said: "Wha' youah
goln,', honey?" the "masher" gasped as
he saw; the ebony features of his
"catch" and tried to persuade her to
leave, ' but It took several hours of
moonlight driving before she decided
to take her departure.
SYNDICATE LEASES PARK;
PLANS BIG IMPROVEMENTS
Chutes park has changed hands and
the new -proprietors, a syndicate head
ed by Sol Davis of the , Golden State
Realty ' company, are preparing to
transform it Into an amusement place
on a scale of grandeur not approached
by any similar resort in the west.
' Plans are well under way for con
verting the park Into an all-the-year
round resort with the' present' attrac
tions on an enlarged and remodeled
scale, , .with the additions of features
not unlike 'those' which make Coney
Island famous ! the world over. These
plans will be matured ' and put Into
execution at once, it being expected
that the resort will be completed and
open for visitors early In the winter.
According to the terms of the lease
tecured by the syndicate from the Los
Angeles , County Improvement ; com-
pany, which extends over a long' period
of years, every feature now Included

FEARS THE FEVER
MILLIONAIRE'S BODY WILL NOT

DAUGHTER IS RECOVERING
Danger From Disease in the South and
Hot Weather Compel Widow to
Remain In Los
Fearful of .the ravages of yellow
fever, now prevalent in the south, ' Mrs.
Milton T. Hancock, widow of the mil
lionaire inventor who lost his life in
a r. automobile accident ten days ago,
will not take the' body of her husband
to Shreveport for interment until some
time next fall. •
It was the . first intention of Mrs.
Hancock and family, to leave Los An
geles for Shreveport some time during
the coming week, as the fourteen-year
old, daughter Eugenia, who sustained
injuries in the automobile collision, is
now able to travel. The fever epidemic
now raging and the heat are features
of the southland, however, which the
family does not • care to meet at the
present time. . . i - '
The body of Mr. Hancock will be left
In the vault at Rosedale until the fam
ily Is ready to accompany it south the
later ' part \of ' September or the first
of October. Following the arrival in
Shreveport, the body will be placed
In the mausoleum,'' which was erected
eight years ago by the late capitalist.
In the interim, 'the family .will re
main quietly at their home on South
Parkavenue. : - ; ; ■
Mrs. J C. D. McNatt, a daughter of
the deceased, 'whose residence is In
Parkton, S. C, was expected, to arrive
In Los Angeles yesterday, but up until
last night no word had been received
from her and It is feared that she
may be detained by the fever quaran
tine now in effect , in many of the
cities of the' gulf states. '"
Mrs. Hancock's stay, in Los Angeles
will give her opportunity to settle
'questions of business/ which were.be
fore Mr. Hancock at 'the. time, of his
death, and also to appear In* the dam
age suit which John Saul, the Injured
milkman, has' started against the es
tate. ' ''■ - ; ■'"• <■'■ ■■'; .
