PASADENA. Dec. I.— "Mike" Clavin,
the ex-saloonkeeper from East St.
Louis, 111., now confined in the local
police station lock-up and awaiting the
urrival of an officer from his home town
to take him back, is alleged to have a
darker crime to answer for than simple
embezzlement from the brewing firm
which furnished him liquor. Chief
Pinkham has had advices from East
St. Louis to the effect that Clavin Is
charged with having stolen nearly $2000,
the entire property of two orphaned
children under his care. When the
father died he left the two children
$2000 life insurance. Clavin was ap
pointed their guardian and his frlen.l,
one Jerry Kane, went his bond. Clavin
is said to have squandered the money
nnd disappeared. Kane and the East
St. Louis police and people became
wildly indignant and used every effort
to capture Clavin. Clavin came to Los
Angeles and finally became frightened
and tried to make another move. He
came to Pasadena to take the train in
order to throw the Los Angeles police
off his track. Chief Pinkham arrested
him In a few hours after he reached
here. The prisoner does not fancy go

To Vote on Concerts
Charles Grimes, who has assumed the
leadership of those favoring Sunday
afternoon band concerts, has hit upon
a plan for determining Just how the
people of the city stand upon this ques
tion. Within a few days blank peti
tions for and against band concerts will
be scattered throughout the city and
every voter will be urged to express
his opinion one way or the other. These
petitions will be collected and pre
sented to the city commissioners at
their meeting of Monday afternoon, De
cember 1. It Is stated that enough of
the commissioners huve stated that
they will vote to give the use of one
of the city's parks for band concerts
if the majority of the people want
them, to reverse the board's former de
cision. There is a feeling that th»
holding of last Sunday's concert in a
private lot opposite a city park after a
majority of the commissioners had
voted against allowing the concerts has
lost thn movement some of the sup
port it would otherwise have had.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER a, 1905.
RECLUSE BURNED TO DEATH
Odd. Character at Santa Barbara Be.
lleved to Have Met Horrible
Special to The Herald.
SANTA BARBARA, Doc. I.— The
charred remains of John Harrington
were found at the door of his hovel
near the city dump grounds early this
morning, and the suposltlon Is that
he met death during the night as the
result of having his clothes burned
from him while In a drunken stupor.
Harrington is familiarly known ns
"The king of the city dump." He
has lived here several years and has
had charge of the dumping grounds,
living near them In a rough structure
made of waste material gathered from
the dumps. He lived there in two
small rooms and picked up a scanty
living by doing odd Jobs. It was ru
mored that he was a miser and had
large treasures stored In his shack,
but this Is not credited by those who
knew him best.
It is believed that Harrington met
his death while sleeping off a Thanks
giving spree. Near him was found an
empty whisky ilask. He probably
came home late at night and built
a hot fire in the grate and then fell
asleep near the fire which caught his
clothing and enveloped him In flames
before he awoke and crawled from his
hut only to die near the door. The
building did not catch fire. A coro
ner's Jury met thl3 morning and
brought in a verdict of accidental
BAND DISPUTE ON AGAIN
New Proposition Brought Forward at
Long Beach by Donatelli's
Special to The Herald.
LONG BEACH, Dec. I.— Manager
Gattone of the Donatelll band now
comes forward with a new proposition
toward band support. Recently he
thought that a Saturday night dance in
the convention hall would be all that
could ba desired, but the half of the
population of Long Beach that could be
termed as non-liberal held their handß
so high in their horror at the idea of a
dance in the $40,000 auditorium that he
has suggested another proposition, and
will relegate all the dances to the sun
pavilion, 1800 feet from the shore at
the end of the pier.
It required desperate measures on the
part of one or two members of the
board of trustees to carry a measure In
that body permitting the Saturday
dance. At the meeting of the council at
which the measure was passed C. J.
Walker, a prominent citizen, a leading
member of the Methodist church and
otherwise well known here, was present
and objected strongly to the action. He
even threatened to withdraw his
monthly subscription of $30 to the sup
port of the band should even a monthly
dance be given in the convention hall.
But Trustee Oiikford stood up for
what he believed to be a businesslike
scheme that would mean the retention
of the Donatelli band in Long Beach
und replied to Mr. Walker's arguments
with equal force. When the vote was
taken the trustees lined up throe to two
on the proposition. Those in favor were
Trustees Campbell, Oakford and Losee.
Against Trustees Eno and Cate.
Exactly what the new tdPa is has not
been made public, but it has received
the sancltion of the board of trade und
will be put forward by that body. In

OF JAIL BREAKERS
SAN BERNARDINO MAN TURNS
Prisoner Who Drew Straws on Agree.
ment to Make Confession of
Digging Tunnel Deserts
Special to The Herald,
SAN BERNARDINO. Dec. 1.-Charles
Bauer, Arthur Chandler and Frank
Jones, who recently with James Mar
tin tunneled out of the county Jail,
expecting to make their escape, but
instead fell into the hands of officers,
are now on trial in the superior court
charged with jail breaking. Martin re
cently pleaded guilty and Is expected
to testify against his fellows.
After the men were recaptured James
Martin made a confession stating that
he had dug the tunnel and the other
three were in no way to be blamed for
it. It soon developed that before mak
ing their break for liberty the men
drew straws, the man drawing the
longest straw agreeing to make a con
fession of guilt as to digging the tun
nel if they were recaptured. Martin got
the straw and made the confession, but
it is said has since made up his mind
that he does not care to stand alone

others are equally guilty of, though he
pleaded guilty in the superior court.
