PASADENA, Oct. I.— Chief of Police
Plnkham sent a telegram yesterday to
the chief of police at Aberdeen, Wash.,
requesting the arrest of one C. Tessler
if he could be found. This afternoon
answer came that the man wanted was
under arrest and asking for further in
structions. These were sent by mail.
Tessler is wanted as the confederate of
Percy Collett, the clerical looking young
Englishman charged with having burg
larized so many houses in and near
Pasadena during the past year. Chief
Pinkham has been looking for Collett's
accomplice ever since the arrest at Los
Angeles Friday and among the prison
er's belongings he found the clew he
desired. A little more investigation
proved to the chief's satisfaction that
he had found the man who for a year
past has been helping Collett in his
wholesale burglaries throughout this
section. The telegram was sent to Ab
erdeen at something of a venture, it
not being absolutely certain that Tes
sier was at that place. The outcome Is
causing the chief much satisfaction.
Collett Is said to have remarked when
he was placed under arrest that his
captors had run up against one of the
sharpest men in the country. The boast
Is probably very nearly the truth, but It
looks as though the young man has at
last met his match.
Not Allowed to Obstruct
Contrary to ' general belief the city
administration has not added the mat
ter of street railway fares to the othei
subjects under consideration by its rep
sentatives and the representatives of
the Pacific Electric company. When
Mr. Dunn of Mr. Huntington's legal
department was before the city council
last week City Attorney Fitzgerald in
cidentally remarked that he hoped that
the Pacific Electric company would at
no distant time go back to the former
plan with reference to its ten-ride com
mutation tickets, namely to allow such
tickets unlimited time instead of thirty
days as at present. Mr. Dunn said
nothing and neither Mr. Fitzgerald nor
any other member of the conference
understood that this question was to In
terject a new point of disagreement in
to the row of others up for discussion.
The administration does not consider
the pushing of this matter Just now and;
would much prefer to have it left for
future consideration. Just at this time
there seems good reason to look for an
amicable settlement of the other points
of difference and fears are entertained
that the fare question might prevent or
certainly obstruct a settlement.
$75,000 for Y. M. C. A.
1 The leaders of Pasadena's Young
Men's Christian association have set
their hearts upon raising the sum of
$76,000 between now and the fall of 1906
for the purpose of making certain addi
tions and alterations to the handsome
association building now in use and al
ready overcrowded. This amount it Is
planned to distribute as follows: $10,000
for a gymnasium; $10,000 for baths and
a swimming pool: $10,000 for the equip
ment of the boys' department; $10,000
for the educational department; $25,000
for general construction, and $10,000 for
general equipment. A busy campaign
•will be waged this winter for the ac
complishment of this purpose and there
is no thought of failure.
Attempted Hold-up
Dewey Hall, a North Pasadena ex
pressman was held up by two men
Friday night, while on his way home
from Los Angeles. As he was passing
the ostrich farm two men stopped his
horse and ordered him to come down
out of the wagon immediately. Not
being armed he started to comply when
an electric car from Pasadena came
around ths bend, the headlight throw
ing a dazzling light upon the scene.
With a curse both men turned away
and ran for shelter in the bushes of
the arroyo. Hall says the men were
white and wore dark masks. City
Marshal 11. V. Reid of South Pasadena
was at once notified of the attempt,
but thus far has not found the men
or any trace of them.
Pasadena Brevities
There was the usual crowd of specta
tors at the Arcadia coursing park, but
no excitement. Constable Austin of
Pasadena was an Interested observer,
but made no arrests. The "coursing"
went on uninterrupted.
George Washington Wolse, aged 81,

Color of Hair Said to Indicate n Per-
son's Temperament
Many people believe that blonde or
light, hair denotes affection and dark
hair constancy. A person without hair
is not devoid of character; far from It.
The disposition of the average bald
headed man is to show such solicitude
for the welfare of others that ho neg

Special to The Herald.
Stansbury and Fred C. Clark, attorneys
from Washington, D. C, were at the
Mascarel hotel yesterday. Mr Stans
bury is ,a special attorney of the gov
ernment Indian service, making a tour
of the western states for the purpose of
Investigating certain Indian depreda
tions that have been committed during
the last sixty years. Mr. Clark Is an
attorney representing the interests of
those who have made their claims, and
as his friend is working in the inter
est of the government they constitute a
sort of transient court, which goes
from plact to place examining Into In
dian claims and often trying the Issues
on the ground. Witnesses are exam
ined according to court methods, with
a court stenographer present, and with
the usual direct, cross-examination and
redirect examination. The attorneys
had hoped to find an important witness
in this city, and were intending to
turn the Mascarel hotel Into a United
States court for his examination, but
after they had hunted the city over
they found that their man had fled
and they hastily went In search of him.
Messrs. Stansbury and Clark are
acting under a congressional act of
1891, which provides for the payment of
claims made by settlers who had their
property destroyed and ofter their
families killed by Indians, as far back
as 1860. The government considers the
Indians Its wards, and therefore deems
itself responsible for any depredation
committed by them while they are
under the restraint of the government.
The amity clause of the act provides,
however, that Indians in a hostile con
dition are not its wards, and no claims
are paid for crimes oommitted by them
when they are on the war-path.
Messrs. Stansbury and Clark say
that there are at present about 8000
claims for indemnities for Indian de
predations in the western states, and
that they aggregate a sum of over

Special to The Herald.
VENTURA, Oct. I.— An accident oc
curred on Ventura avenue yesterday
shortly after noon, as a result of which
Charles Simpson sustained a fracture
of one leg between the knee and ankle.
Rather peculiar circumstances sur
round the accident. Lee Wilson, who
lives a few miles north of town, was
starting for home when he was taken
with an attack of heart trouble and
fell from the wagon. While the crowd
which had collected, was discussing
what to do, Mr. Simpson drove up with
a horse and buggy. He took the sick
man in and started for his (Simpson's)
home. The groans of Wilson frightened
the horse, which finally started to run.
When nearly in front of Simpson's
home the buggy struck the sidewalk,
throwing both men out. Mr. Simpson's
leg was broken as above stated. Mr.
Wilson's Injuries were not serious and
he has greatly improved. The buggy
was demolished.

Kansas Saloon Smasher Believed to
Be Heiress to a Big
By Associated Press.
WICHITA, Kas.. Oct. I.— Joseph W.
Phoenix of Hamilton, Ont., is anxious
to learn the whereabouts of Carrie Na
tion, and offers a reward for informa
tion that will tend to show that she was
once a resident of London, Ont. It is
suspected that the Kansas smasher has
fallen heir to a big fortune, and it may
be possible that she may yet become
famous in other ways than smashing
bottles, mirrors and glasses.
Mr. Phoenix wrote Mayor Ross as fol
Mayor of Wichita, Kas.:
Dear Sir: Kindly Inform me what
Carrie Nation's maiden name was be
fore she was married in the first place
and whom she married first? Was he
a doctor? Also please tell her present
address, and if she was originally from
London Canada. If Carrie is the per
son we suppose she is you shall be well
paid for your trouble.
It is believed that Carrie Nation once
lived in Canada, but no one has yet
been seen here who was able to answer
the question of Mr. Phoenix. It is
hardly probable that Carrie committed
any overt act prior to leaving Canada,
or that she has slipped over the border
when the sharp-eyed Canadian officials
were not looking and took a smash at
a few Joints in some of the towns in
her native province.
Mayor Ross, in replying to Mr. Phoe
nix, stated that Carrie Nation had
never been a resident of Wichita, and
one could almost distinguish evidence
of pleasure upon the mayor's part In
the way he said It. He also intimates
that upon the occasions of Carrie's
brief visits to Wichita In the past she
had doubtless been too busy with other
matters to call upon him and enlighten
him relative to her antecedents, hence
he was unable to tell what her maiden
name was, whether her first husband
was a doctor, whether she ever lived in
London, Canada, or where her present
address is. It is possible, however,
that some of Carrie's admirers in
Wichita may take the necessary
trouble to enlighten him in this partic

Jersey City Dominie Says Men Pay
Too Much Attention to Women's
Beautiful Hair and Neglect
the Sermon
Special to The Herald.
JERSEY CITY, N. J., Oct. I.—
Nearly every woman who attended
the service at St. Joseph's Episcopal
church tonight wore hats in response
to a gentle hint from the Rev. Dr. E.
L. Stoddart, rector. The hint appeared
in the current issue of the church
weekly, distributed today among the
parishioners. Those who come to
church hatless were stared at by the
others who had read the clergyman's
article on St. Paul and hats.
Dr. Stoddart recently returned from
Europe, where he spent a year's vaca
tion. He found that many women of
his parish had acquired the habit dur
ing the summer of going to church,
particularly on Sunday evenings, with
out hats. He does not approve the
innovation, but didn't say so from the
pulpit. He reserves all his little lec
tures and business talks for the Bul
letin, and the members read it relig
Rector's Authority Is St. Paul
Dr. Stoddart in his "hint" said:
"In the seventh chapter of first Cor
inthians St. Paul the apostle distinctly
torbids women to remain bareheaded
in church. Of course in this lively age
we have many a flippant critic who
would smile at any such command of
the great apostle, and say that 'that
may have been well enough for the
first century, but as regards us, why,
Paul was a little behind time.'
"That may be true, though I must
confess that, as far as my experience
goes, I have not only found no one
who has outgrown St. Paul,, but no one
who, in greatness of thought, breadth
of vision, and profound spiritual saga
city begins to approach him. But even
if we have outgrown him in some re
spects, have we done so in the matter
of bareheaded women in church?"
Dr. Stoddart said that "The glory of
a woman is her hair," and it has al
ways been considered one of her
chaims, to care for which she devotes
much of her time and upon which she
relies for part of her attraction.
"Is it not evident," he continued,
"that the church is not the place for
the display of this attraction? Is It
not clear that to come to church with
an elaborate coiffure Is to come with
something which draws attention of
man to the woman who Is so adorned?
"Is it not plain that this is not in
harmony with the angelic spirit which
we have Just described? We are used
more to see in the streets and theaters
women with bare heads.
Mustn't Attract Men In Church
"It is unquestioned that in all this
the woman attracts the attention and
often the admiration of men. But it
la just tnis which she is not to do in
church. If I understand the apostle
right, in the house of the Savior woman
in to be supremely modest and her
charms restrained with none of that
abandon with which she' swings along
the field or shore, with browned arms
and disheveled locks. There is to be
a distinction of places and also of man
ners. '
"But ■It ■ may be asked if, by ■ excess
of gaudy hats, 1 woman may not attract

much to say about the modesty of

former case the attention Is drawn to
the clothing or the jewelry. In the

ter to Rockefeller, Protesting
Against Gambling
Special to The Herald.
CLEVELAND, Oct. I.— "Three times
this department has been called upon
to raid rooms in the Weddell house.
These rooms were used for gambling
purposes by professlonel gamblers. I
cannot believe this has been done with
the knowledge and consent of yourself,
as the proprietor, and I take this
means of advising you of the situation,
and soliciting your co-operation in our
effort to br-alc up this most vicious
and unlawful practice."
This was the substance of a letter
received by John D. Rockefeller, and
sent by Fred Kohler, chief' of police.
Kohler wrote it with a raid at the
Weddell, owned by Rockefeller, fresh
in mind.
A complete gambling layout was
found in rooms on the second floor.
Several men were playing poker. The
men were- not arrested but the para
phernalia was seized.
