CROWD THREATENS HIM WITH
Special Policeman Fights Desperately
With Assailants, at the Same
Time Holding Fast to
Surrounded by a mob of nearly a
hundred angry men, Special Officer
Arlngton for nearly twenty minutes
fought off the attacks ' of the crowd
single-handed and held prisoner a man
nearly twice as large as himself last
evening at Fifth and Central avenue.
Again and again the officer blew his
whistle, and when at last help arrived
it was all that three officers could do
to restrain the furious. mob from tear
ing the little negro special limb from
Several times before assistance ar
rived Arington was knocked down
and once his revolver and handcuffs
were pulled from his pockets and tossed
many feet away, but a sympathizer
restored them to him. After Arlngton
had handcuffed his prisoner, Peter Pe
terson, two special officers responded
to the repeated calls for help and a
few minutes later a patrol loaded with
police arrived on the scene and dis
persed the mob.
Arington became involved in trouble
when he attempted to arrest Peterson,
•who was fighting with a smaller man.
Looking around, Peterson with an oath
rushed on Arlngton, who evaded his
blows and attempted to mison with
him. Arlngton had been told thnt
Peterson attacked the chauffeur of an
automobile who refused to give Peter
son a drink.
Peterson and other ice handlers and
men In that vicinity took up the cry
of "Kill the nigger," and as the spe
cial grappled with his husky opponent
he was pulled backward by the collar.
Peterson fled to a street car which
was passing and boarded It. Arlng
ton freed himself and followed him.
Peterson was ejected from the car by
the crew and Arlngton collared him.
Three shots, supposed to have been
fired at Arlngton, attracted the atten
tion of several special officers some dis
tance away, and when they arrived on
the scene they found Peterson in irons
and Arlngton holding the mob at bay
with a revolver. Despite the efforts
of the specials the assembled crowd
surged about the negro and his pris
oner, threatening to lynch the officer.
When reinforcements arrived from
the central station the crowd dispersed,
but after the officers had left small
groups of men gathered about and
made dire threats against Arlngton.
The general sentiment was: "If any
negro policeman comes down here he
will not live long."

What Sulphur Does
For the Human Body in Health and
The mention of sulphur will recall to
many of us the early days when our
mothers and grandmothers gave us our
daily dose of sulphur and molasses ev-
ery spring and fall.
It was the universal spring and fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all,
and mind you, this old-fashioned rem-
edy was not without merit.
The Idea was good, but the remedy
was crude and unpalatable, and a
large quantity had to be taken to get
Nowadays we get all the beneficial
effects of sulphur in a palatable, con-
centrated form, so that a single grain
Is far more effective than a tablespoon-
ful of the crude sulphur.
In recent years, research and experi-
ment have proven that the best rul-
phur for medicinal use is that obtained
from Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and
sold in drug stores under the name of
Stuart's Calcium Wafers. . They are
small chocolate coated pellets and con-
tain the active medicinal principle of
sulphur In a highly concentrated, ef-
fective form. .
Few people are aware of the value
of this form of sulphur In restoring
and maintaining bodily vigor and
health: sulphur acts directly on the
liver and excretory organs and •purifies
and enriches the blood by the prompt
elimination of waste material.
pur grandmothers knew this when
they dosed us with sulphur and mo-
lasses every spring and fall, but the
crudity and impurity of ordinary flow-
ers of sulphur were often worse than
the disease, and cannot compare with
the modern concentrated preparations
of sulphur, of which Stuart's Calcium
Wafers is undoubtedly the best and
most widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liver
and kidney troubles and cure constip-
ation and purify the blood In a way
that often surprises patient and physi-
Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experiment-
Ing with sulphur remedies soon found
that the sulphur from Calcium was
superior to any other form. He says:
"For liver, kidney and blood troubles,
especially when resulting from constip-
ation or malaria, I have been surprised
at the results obtained from Stuart's
Calcium Wafers. In patients suffering
from bolls and pimples and even deep-
seated carbuncles, I have repeatedly
Been them dry up and disappear in four
or five days, leaving the skin clear and
smooth. Although Stuart's . Calcium
Wafers is a proprietary article and
sold by druggists, and for that renson
tabooed by many physicians, yet I
know of nothing so safe and reliable
for constipation, liver and kidney
(roubles and especially In all forms of
Bkln disease as this remedy." ;
At any rate people who aretir«l of
pills, cathartics and so-called blood
"purifiers,", will flnfl In . Stuart's Cal-
cium Wafers a far safer, more iialata-
ble and effective preparation. ,

F. J. Zeehandelaar, secretary of the
Merchants and Manufacturers' associa

one of the foremost men in his profes

floats for the parade of the La Fiesta
de los Flores next May.
Mr. Robinson has for years had en

LABORER IS KILLED BY
GREEN MEADOWS MAN MAKES
D. L. Sackett, Blinded by Glare of
Headlight of Swiftly Moving Car,
Walks on Tracks and Sustains
Blinded by the brilliant headlight of a
San Pedro interurban car, D. L. Sack
ett, a laborer residing at Green Mead
ows, walked ' in front of the swiftly
moving car a half mile from the sta
tion last evening about 8 o'clock and
sustained injuries from which he died
at 2 o'clock this morning.
With a wild scream Sackett threw
up his hands as the car struck him,
and was hurled many feet to the right
of the track. ■ ■ ■ < ■
Horrified passengers clambered out of
the car and found Sackett lying In the
weeds several feet behind where the
car stopped. The limp form of the dy
ing man was picked up and taken
aboard the car and brought to Los
Angeles. After an examination Dr.
Quint found that Sackett could not
live. The bumper of the car struck
the man in the abdomen and the pel
vic cavity, crushing the bones and
mangling the flesh.
Passengers on the car say that Sack
ett deliberately walked in front of
the car. The motprman had no oppor
tunity, they say, to apply the air In
time to stop the car. As Sackett stepped
between the rails he realized in an
instant that he was about to be struck
and with a piercing scream reeled and
would have fallen If the car had not
caught him and tossed him to one side.
After remaining at the receiving
hospital for several hours Snckett re
gained consciousness enough to call
for his wife and children. Efforts were
made to learn his version of the affair,
but he had only a hazy recollection of
the accident. Late lust evening Mrs.
Sackett arrived in Los Angeles and im
mediately went to the receiving hospi
tal. She held a short conversation with
her husband, but he r.oon relapsed into
While Sackett lay dying at the re
ceiving hospital it was learned through
his wife that hla youngest child, a lit-
tle girl of 4 years, was dying at Green
Meadows. News of the child's condi
tion was kept from the father.
A theory of suicide was advanced
late last evening by the police at work
on the case. It was learned that Sack
ett had lost his insurance policy and
being in nearly destitute condition it is
thought possible that he attempted to
kill himself, no knowing that he could
have it renewed. Mrs. Sackett, when
her husband confided to her the fact
that he had lost his policy, was thrown
Into nearly a hystericnl condition. She
acknowledged that their financial con
dition was very bad.

FIVE LOST FROM
GREAT SEAS SWEEP OVER
Besides Those Washed Overboard,
More Than Thirty Persons In
the Steerage Are Injured
by the Waves
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Oct. 14.— Five lives are
known to have been lost and more than
thirty persons Injured, one fatally and
some of them seriously, on the Cunard
line steamer Campania last Wednes
day, when a gigantic wave rolled over
the steamer and swept across a deck
thick with steerage passengers. So sud
den wqh the coming of the disaster and
so great the confusion which attended
and followed it that even the officers
of the steamer themselves were unable
today upon the vessel's arrival here to
estimate the full extent of the trag
edy. It is possible that the five persons
known to be missing from the steerage
may not constitute the full number of
dead. When the Campania reached
quarantine today ten of the Injured
passengers were still in the ship hos
pital, some of them seriously hurt and
a score of others were nursing minor
John Graham, of Milwaukee was one
of the passengers washed overboard
and lost. He was traveling in the steer
age. The others who ai - e known to
have lost their lives were Margaret
Cleary, Mary Cosgrove, Niels Ekberg
and Elizabeth Grunadotter.
The Campania was plowing along un
der full headway last Wednesday aft
ernoon. A heavy quartering sea was
running, but the weather conditions
were far from unpleasant and the big
boat's decks were crowded with pas-
Bengers. The steerage deck was cov
ered with merry-makers and there was
nothing to indicate the approaching dis
aster, when suddenly the big steamer
lurched to port and scooped up an enor
mous sea. 1 The wave boarded the
steamer about mldshJp on the port
side and swept clear across the steer
age deck, completely filling the space
between that deck and the deck above
and carrying -everything with it. The
steamer's side was buried and pas
sengers on the deck above the steerage
were submerged to their waists as the
immense volume of water rolled aft
and then surged forward. All the cabin
passengers on the upper deck succeed
ed In clinging to supports while the
waters surged around them and were
saved, but the unfortunates In the
steerage deck found themselves ut
Power of Seas Irresistible
The Irresistible rush of waters, sweep
ing toward the forward part of the
ship, carried everything before It. Net
tings, heavy railings and other ob
structions which had been arranged
near the railings to prevent passen
gers being washed overboard, served
their purpose only In part.
So great was the volume and force
of the rushing waters that a door in
the rail was smashed, and through this
opening, five of the helpless ones who
had been caught by the wave, were
swept to their death. Others dashed
against the rails and other like ob
structions and toscaped death, but

many of them received severe Injuries.
One young woman had both legs
broken at the thigh, and several per
sons Buffered broken arms and ribs,
while more than a score were bruised
When the wave cleared the vessel,
the forward part of the deck was
strewn with injured and for hours Dr.
Varden, the ship's surgeon, aided by
a number of physiclanß among the
cabin passengers, was busy In attend
ing to their hurts'. In the meantime
an Inspection of the steerage was
made by the ship's officers and It was
learned that five of the passengers
were missing. No further confirma

First Passenger Lost by Accident
Wednesday's disaster marks the
first time in the Cunard line's history
of more than sixty years that a pas
senger has been lost from one of Its
steamers by accident.
Although some of the passengers
thought that the Campania should
have stopped in an attempt to Bave
those who were washed overboard, the
officers say that this was practically
an Impossibility. Both passengers
and officers say that the waves in
Wednesday afternoon's gale were th>
highest they had ever seen. At tlmrs*
they broke as high as the top of the
smoke stacks. An hour before the
accident a second officer on the brldjre
was struck by the descending crest of
