CHILD CRIME IS
ON THE INCREASE
MANY YOUNG OFFENDERS ARE
ARRESTED
Officials of Department Say Harm
Done by Youthful Miscreants
Among Their Associates Can
Hardly Be Estimated
Police reports of the last few months
show that child crime is growing in
Los Angeles with great rapidity.
- The arrest of Adolph Jtivera of 529
Aliso street last evening brought from
the head of a department the expres-
Blon: "If I could learn the secret of
preventing this reign of child crime,
I would sacrifice much. And if I could
prevent it I would sacrifice much
more."
Rivera is thirteen years old, but Is
well known to the police. Attracted by
the sight of hundreds of loose car
tridges lying on the counter of a Main
street shooting gallery, Hivera stepped
up to the counter and when he thought
no one was looking took a large quan
tity. He was Immediately detected
and his arrest followed.
"There seems to be no end to this
reign of petit crime," said a police offi
cial yesterday. It Is not so much the
few lads who aro continually in trou
ble, but the boys they lead into vice
and crime through association.
"Comparatively speaking, it is very
easy to take care of those boys who
are known to uh, and with some little
difficulty the new cases can be cared
for. But the real trouble Ib thnt the
more general child crime becomes the
more It spreads, and the evil inlluence
pulls in the innocent.
"Once a lad becomes a hardened
little criminal he has made himself a
likely candidate for the penitentiary.
It has been our experience that few
lads are pavftrt out of the many thnt

Other police officials, officers, dis
trict attorneys and Juvenile Judges say
that in nearly every case when a lad
is started on the downward path he
never ceases until he falls.
THRUSTS DEATH ASIDE
Trainman Lifts Baby From Track
Before an Onrushing
Train
Special to The Herald.
PORT JERVIS, N. T., Nov. 4.—Fire
man Charles Reugger and Trainman
Dwyer of a Delaware division way
freight heroically saved the life of a
little girl yesterday.
The way freight was coming east at
a lively speed. Near Hancock En
gineer Daniel Reagan was horrified to
see a girl about 3 years old directly In
front of the engine and only a few
yards away. She was too youngr to re
alize her peril and frolicked on the
ties.
Reagan applied the emergency, but
It was apparent the train could not be
stopped In time, so Fireman Reugser
and Trainman Dwyer ran along the
running board to the cowcatcher.
Although his own life was in danger,
Dwyer made his way to the very end
of the pilot and reached ahead of the
train. He was being held from falling
forward by Fireman Reugger and a slip
of either of the men would have meant
death.
Dwyer leaned far over, grabbed the
child and held her in the air as Reug
ger helped him to a safe position. The
engine passed several yards more over
the track before it stopped.
The child's mother, thinking her little
girl was killed, ran screaming down
the track. When she saw the little
one safe she wept with Joy and grati
tude.
BURGLARS JEER AT PEOPLE
They Work Openly at Blowing Open
a Safe and Secure Its
Contents
Special to Tho Herald.
STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 4.— Three
burglars blew open with nitroglycerine
early this morning the 7000-pound safe
In Jeremiah Miller's general store,
which is also this Springdale postofflce.
A fourth man stood outside on guard.
There were five explosions and the
four men walked away with $500 in
postage stamps, laughing and Jeering
at the villagers, who were terrorized
at their crime. They did not even take
the precaution to throw a blanket over
the safe to deaden the explosion. The
store's shades were up and the lights
burning brightly.
The burglars smoked and chatted
while at their work. They tried four
times to blow open the strong box In
the interior of the safe but failed. It
held several hundred dollars.
In the past seven years five safes
have been blown up in Mr. Miller's
store. On March 16 last his store was
burned to cover a burglary.
TRIED TO GIVE IT AWAY
Nevada Rancher In Chicago Anxious
to Dispose of the Bum of
$6,351
Special to The Herald.
CHICAGO, Nov. 4.— A. Mueller, a
ranch owner from Nevada, attempted
to give away 96351 In front of the
Palmer house this morning.
Policeman Peterson was attracted
from across the street by Mueller's
actions and as he approached the
Nevadan threw the money on the side
walk and called out:
"Will no one take It?"
"Yes, I will," said Peterson, as he
picked up the money and seized Muel
ler. Mueller aald he had arrived In
Chicago Tuesday and had disposed of
several carloads of cattle. He then
began drinking. He was locked up
temporarily.
LOS ANGELES HERALD! SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 5, 1905.
CAST OUT WITH CHICKENS
Wife of Nearly Thirty Years Sends
Frederick Scheuler to the
Poorhouse
Special to The Herald.
DENVER, Nov. 4.— After twenty
eight years of married life, the past
few years of which have been spent In
litigation with his wife, Frederick
Scheuler Is a feeble, penniless, aged
outcast. Turned out of his home by
his wife through processes of law, his
scanty ' wardrobe thrown into tho
streets, the chickens from which he re
ceived his last source of revenue, upon
which he was meagerly maintained,
driven away and scattered with the
winds, he has made an Individual ap
peal to Judge Mullins for relief. But
the judge, whose duty it is to admin
ister the cold letter of the law and
not to warp it so as to season It with
mercy against the legal rights of one
for the charity of the other, could only
listen to the old man's story In silence
and tell him to go his way unaided.
The decision which was the final un
doing of the old man was rendered by
Judge Mullins the first of the week,
which gave the wife, Mrs. Catherine
Scheuler, the little home occupied by
him In the suburbs of Denver as a
chicken ranch. Immediately after the
decision the wife went upon the prem
ises and took possession. She gathered
together her husband's few effects and
threw them Into the road In front of
the place, and then made war upon the
chickens. With a broom and missiles
of every description, according to
Scheuler's attorney's statement, shß
chased them to the four winds, and
they, like their former owner, are out
casts and a prey to the elements and
the wild animals of the surrounding
hills.
The last suit involved the little
chicken ranch in an unlawful detainer
action. A number of years ago Mrs.
Scheuler brought suit against her hus
band for divorce on the ground of in
compatibility of temper. In this she
failed. But the attorney for Scheuler
claims the court erroneously entered a
decree against the husband for ali
mony, thinking a divorce had been
granted. He maintains that alimony
can only be given where a divorce is
granted. Anyway, he says that after
the old man by gardening and selling
eggs and spring chickens had paid ali
mony under the order for more than
a year, he was taken sick and fell be
hind.
He states that the wife permitted the
debt to accumulate without making nn
effort to collect until it amounted to
a large sum. She then obtained an ex
ecution against her husband, and the
sheriff levied on the chicken ranch
property. He sold It, and the wife be
came the purchaser. The old man had
no place to go and refused to walk out
upon the common. Mrs. Seheuler then
brought suit of unlawful detainer.
They fought it out from justice court
to county court and then appealed to
the district court, where Judge Mullins
has rendered a final decree against the
old man.
Without a dollar to his name,, un
able to appeal tha case further or pay
attorney's fees, he was informed by
his attorney that there was nothing
else to be done. It was then that
Scheuler went for a last appeal to
Judge Mullins.
"I guess I will have to go to the poor
farm," said the old man, as he feebly
plodded across the court yard and
down the street, without a dollar or a
friend to his name.
FOUR ACES PROVE FATAL
Pat Sheedy Says That Winning Often
Quickens Heart Action to
Danger Point
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.— Pat Sheedy,
In his time probably the greatest card
gambler the world ever knew, said
yesterday that there was In his mind
no doubt whatever that Col. William
Slmms, the Huntington (W. Va.) stock
dealer who dropped dead holding a
royal flush In a poker game, was the
victim of excessive emotion over good
luck.
"That royal flush killed him," said
Mr. Sheedy. "It is the most logical
thing In the world to those who know
what It is to win or lose large amounts
of money. I know by experience.
Poker, however, never excited me. A
horse race does. So will a prize fight
today. I have felt the hair rise on my
head at a great racing finish, where I
had much money on the winning horse.
"The elation, at times, was almost
painful, and for a minute my heart
did three times as much work as It
was made to do. Loss, does not affect
the heart action as does a great gain.
The heart's action slows up under loss
and dissapointment. The result is
great lassitude. On the contrary, when
the normal man makes a great gain,
he will experience a buoyancy of spirit
for hours.
"If his heart is not normal that same
big winning may make him ill.
"It may kill him, as It did Col. Simms
and as It did another man down south
only last week, who drew to three aces
and got the fourth. These men un
doubtedly did not have normal hearts,
but under the ordinary Incidents of
dally business life they would probably
have lived many years.
"The excitement was too much for
them.
"I've watched the emotions of men
under the stress of gambling excite
ment In all the countries In the world
for over thirty years, and I know
what I'm talking about when I say
that great winnings will sometimes
kill, but a great loss never. The first
overtaxes the heart action, the second
practically decreases its work."
MAGGIE ARRIVES IN NEW YORK
She Cooks Now for Senator Hanna's
Widow at the Swell Gotham
Hotel
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.— "Hanna's
Maggie." the concoctor of that historic
hash with which the Ohio senator re
galed distinguished breakfast guests,
Is at the Gotham hotel.
She is there In her professional ca
pacity as cook, but the guests of the
house, with a single exception, are bar
red from the gastronomic delights cre
ated by her skill.
Maggie cooks for only Mrs. Mark
Hanna, the senator's widow, who has
established herself permanently at the
Gothum. The only private hotel kitchen
on record has been constructed for her
exclusive use and under her personal
supervision. It Is entirely apart from
the main kitchen of the hotel, and
every utensil In its equipment was se
lected personally by "Hanna's Mag
gie."
All this was accomplished by Mrs.
Mark Hanna In the face of seemingly
Insurmountable barriers. No sooner
had she decided upon New York as a
place of perirmnanent residence than
she began to plan for the installation
of Maggie as her personal chef.
When the Idea was first suggested
at the Gotham the management nearly
collapsed. The unheard of plan of a
personal chef was bad enough, but the
scheme for v separate kitchen amazed
the management.
Hut all things are possible for a wo
man with an accurate knowledge of
what ehe wants and the money to pay
for it. 80 the Hanna kitchen was con
structed and the triumphant Maggie
hurrying in from her. Ohio home took
poseession.
There is no record of this favored
cook's full name— so far as van be
learned. Through all the years of her
service with the Ohio aenator she was
known only as Maggie, and as the
fame of her dishes spread, the title was
lengthened to "Hanna's Maggie."
President Roosevelt has partaken of
Maggie's hash time and again, and
has found it good. Many other dlstin
guished men in public life have done
the same with the same result, and
many were the plots laid to lure Maggie
from the senator's service.
The feast at the marriage of Ruth
Hanna was prepared by Maggie's own
hands, and on that occasion Major
Gen. Corbln offered a toast in her hon
or. As the three hundred guests rose
cheering from their chairs the beaming
Maggie bowed her thanks from the
kitchen door.
Hanna's Maggie" owns a snug lit
tle Ohio farm and has money enough
to keep her the rest of her days In
solid comfort. Senator Hanna attended
to that in his will.

us In that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.— Rom. 5:8."
It will be there for a whole year.
The text, which occupies a billboard
twenty-five feet long and eight feet
high, facing the bridge on the south at
the curve into Sands street, was viewed
yesterday, for the most part with ex
clamations of astonishment, by BOO.OOn
rersons who passed across the struc
ture.
Who caused the big gospel sign to be
painted is as yet a mystery. It was
completed only Monday morning, and
was practically under public observa
tion yesterday for the first time. It is
Joined at one end to a large whisky
advertisement, and this curious Juxta
poßltion was the main topic of com
ment yesterday on the part of the
bridge passengers.
The sign stands on the roof of the
five-story building, 978 Fulton street,
the ground floor of which is occupied
by a saloon. The building Is owned by
D. Haggerty, a rich old neighborhood
grocer, whose little shop is at 99 Wash
ington street, near by.
Mr. Haggerty refused to divulge the
name of the man who had the gospel
sign painted.
The arrangement, It was said, was
made by a tall, thin young man, who
said that several religious men wore
associated with him in the enterprise.
He requested that his name be kept
secret. He said he had been looking
around for some time for a vacant bill*
board to put the scriptures on.
"Some people." said the mysterious
enthusiast, "forget there Is a God. In
order that the people of New York may
not entirely lose 3lght of his existence,
I have decided to keep his name and
precious words before their eyes. I
want all to remember him. There are
all kinds of signs in sight but the
right one."
Whoever the rich man was, he made
every arrangement to hide his identity.
Not even the name of the painter is
on the sign nor any clue thereto.
Grocer Haggerty got a check for (250
for the use of the billboard for one
year. The gospel sign has come to
stay.
