MANY INJURED
IN COLLISION
WOMAN IS HEROINE OF THE
HOUR
Mrs. L. A. Newton Fearlessly Plunge*
Into Wrecked Electrlo Car
and Aids In Rescue
of Wounded
Inttrurbnn car over on Its side, Just
as; though it were a nutshell.
Many Injured by Glass
"An the cra*h came I turned my back
to the front glass and braced myself
for It. I escaped uninjured save for
the blow I received by a woman be
ing thrown against me. An soon na
I felt the enr settle I leaped out and
did what I could to assist the other
passengers.
"First I caught Bight of a man
whom I learned was Mr. Davenport.
After trying for somo time to get as
sistance, for I saw that he was being
crushed to death beneath the weight
of. the car on his head and hip, I suc
ceeded and we carried him out from
under it.
■ VBy thJs time all had gained suffi
cient presence of mind to assist and
wo succeeded ln carrying out the badly
Injured first and then assisting thoso
who were slightly injured. The show
ers of broken glass together with the
force with which the car was over
turned caused many injuries.
"The inside of the overturned car
was spattered with blood of the vic
tims,, and most of the occupants were
bleeding from cuts and bruises and
several were unconscious."
Almost all of the victims of the ac
cident were members of tho Stanton
post of the Women's Relief Corps, and
were on the way to attend a meeting
of the corps.
Condition of the Injured
Mrs. H. A. Lambert, 129 South Flow
er street, was one of the most se
riously Injured of thoso ln the wreck.
Her skull was fractured and the mus
cles of her neck were tarn and bruised.
Mrs. Lambert's buck was bruised, as
•was her chest. Mrs. Lambert Is tho
niece of Councilman Hiller. The nurse
in attendance upon Mrs. Lambert said
that It was likely that her injuries
would result fatally, but that no accu
rate statement of her condition could
be made until there were later devel
opments. Mrs. Lambert has under
gone two operations of a serious na
ture within the past two weeks and
consequently her recuperative powers
will be taxed to the utmost.
While Mrs. Lnmbert was seriously
injured, her little five-year-old son,
Herbert, who was riding in the seat
beside his mother, was not Injured In
the slightest particular. At the first
shock of the collision the boy was
thrown under. one of the seats of the
car and thus escaped injury.
Mrs. E. C. Willis of 413 Bonnie Brae
was nlso severely shocked and hurt.
Mrs. Willis is quite advanced In years,
being past 60, and the shock was ac
cordingly all the r greater. Her head
was quite severely, cut and there were
several contusions on her back and
sides. There is thought to* be no dan
ger that Mrs. Willis will. not survive,
although sit last reports the reaction
had begun to set flu and she was in a
serious condition':"- • It was impossible
to ascertain whether or not there were
any Internal Injuries.
Mrs. A. McOuiidless wns with Mrs.
Willis at the time of the accident, but
was not Injured beyond being shocked
and bruised.
Mrs. 11. Mart-hand of 148 West Jef
ferson street was cut on the neck and
face by the flying glass arid bled con
siderably before assistance could be
obtained.
Mrs. S. O. Richardson, daughter of
Mrs. Man-hand, was thrown against
the Kent in front of her by the shock
of the collision, and as tho car jumped
backward after tho shock, she was
flung to the floor, where her head
struck 1111 iron st^it support. It is
feared thnt her throat is so seriously
injured that she may never recover the
use of her voice. It is not »s yet
known whether her skull Is fractured
or not. "... . j ;
One of the car inspectors was seen
soon after the accident and the serious
ness of the accident was spoken of.
"Yes." said ho, "that was sure a bad
accident. Why those cars that wdre
Smashed cost every cent of $51)00 each.
It certainly was a terrible loss."
"There were several people injured,
were there not?" he was askerl. "Yas,
I believe there were. Oh,- that was a
terrible loss, two cars .-ill smashed up

"MAY GO TOMORROW,"'
SAID MR. DAVENPORT
AT REUNION THURSDAY
At the Davenport home last night
there was much sorrow and more thnn
a score of friends of the family called
to offpr their sympathy and lend sld to
bereaved members of the household.
"We nil held a reunion yesterday,"
said It. M. WBtnon, one of Mr. Daven
porfti sons-in-law. 1 "Mr. Davenport
Kpemed to be happy nnd we nil opent
nn enjoyable afternoon talking of old
times together.
"During the conversation my father
in-law nald, 'Well, children, I am get
ting older every year.' At that one of
his daughters looked Up and nald, 'Why,
daddy, you will Jive for twenty years
more."
"Mr. Davenport smiled and maid, 'I
don't know, daughter, I moy die to
morrow.' His prophesy was fulfilled
within twenty-four hours.
"We were notified first of the accl
dent by my father's partner, who wan
on one of the earn at the time lof the
nccldent. He was the first to reach Mr.
Davenport and he assisted In lifting the
body from under the wreckage. My
father-in-law had a number of Impor
tant papers In his pocket; papers which
he kept nlwnys with him, and these
were scattered about. I understand
that they were picked up by one of his
friends and placed in the cure of a
druggist near the scene of the accident.
The papers contained, besides records
of considerable importance, a list of nil
his property holdings, among them be
ing a list of houses which, through his
real estate business, he had been build-
Ing ln various parts of the city for the
past few months.
"He had recently moved to his new
homo at 1006 West Klghth street and
had been living here about two
months."
James P. Davenport was born at
Alexandria, W. Va.. in 1841. His father
wns a farmer and he was reared on the
farm until he was 15 years of age, when
the home place was sold and the family
moved to a farm in the vicinity of
Urooklyn.
When the Civil War broke out, four
years later, Mr. Davenport was one of
the first to volunteer. He wns accepted
through the New York naval examina
tion station and was mustered Into the
United States navy.
He was sent to the scene of opera
tions on the Mississippi immediately
following his enlistment and as the tide
of war swept westward he was sent
with a number of picked men to guard
the federal Interests on the Pacific
coast. He remained there during the
remainder of the war and was mus
tered out with honors at the close of
the war.
From the naval post at Mare Island
he went to Nevada City and became a
commercial salesman. He married in
that city nnd later moved to San Fran
cisco, where he represented the com
mercial house of Sherwood & Sherwood
for many years as one of their most
efficient workers.
Thirteen years ago he came to Los
Angeles and built a home at Tenth and
Maple avenues. The home still remains
and Is known as the Davenport home
stead.
Mr. Davenport was known and well
liked by hundreds of prominent and in
fluential families of Los Angeles. Loy
alty to the city of Los Angeles was his
first thought and many of the great
improvements of the city have been
fathered by him. ,
His widow and three daughters, Mrs.
R. M. Watson of 1056 West Eighth
street, Mrs. G. M. Crowe of 737 Fran
cisco street and Miss Ethel Davenport,
survive him.
Mr. Davenport was an Elk In good

members of the order. f . - .

MR. DAVENPORT ONLY
OBJECT OF "RECALL" .
IN WORLD'S HISTORY
J. P. Davenport was elected to the
city council as the Republican repre
sentative of the Sixth ward In the
spring of 1902, but did not serve out
his term, as he was recalled by his
constituents for voting to award tho
contract for the city printing to the
Los Angeles Times. He was the only
city official on whom the recall was
ever tried ln this city and according
to tho statement of city officials tho
only one In the world.
This did not appear to be an enor
mous crime in the eyes of those with
whom he came in dally contact, whilt
ln his official capacity, and he la re
membered with the kindliest feelings
by every city official and his col
loasues.
He was chairman of the supply com
mittee, a member of the board of pub
lic works mid of the lighting and water
committees, positions which are con
sidered of high Importance In the city
hull.
'We never had such a thorough sys
tem in tho supply committee before or
since Mr. Davenport Was a member of
the council," said Minute Clerk Wilde
yesterday. "He would have the sup
ply committee meet every morning at
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 2, 1905.
9 o'clock And look nvor the requisitions
of the day before, delve into the neces
sary data «nd knew every little pen
point that wad nought for any depart
ment."
The election for his recall was heM
September 1* and when he was counted
out he Immediately took the rase to
court find proved that his recall was
technically wronff. Through the de
cision which he won Against the munic
ipality the city tvaa compelled to pay
him for his full term, although It
lacked three and a months of being
completed.
EX-COUNCILMAN VALUED
WORKER IN COUNCILS
OF HUMANE SOCIETY
An a worker In the caune of the Hu
mane society, Mr. Davenport recently
had been laboring earnestly to prevent
the sale of tobacco to minors. A few
days ago he visited local newspaper
oftlces and explained that ordinances
governing the sale of tobacco to mlnora
would be enforced. Articles regarding
this were published only a few dnys
ago,
Mr. Davenport took {treat Interest In
the work and deolared himself heartily
ln favor of all measures calculated to
prevent Injury being done the youth by
cigar and tobacco dealers.*
Ills efforts were aimed directly at
dealers who conduct small stands ln
the vicinity of schools.
Mr. Davenport was busy for several
day» distributing circulars In which it
was stated that all persona violating
the laws regulating the sale of tobacco
to children would be prosecuted.
FORMER ASSOCIATES
OF THE EX-COUNCILMAN
AFFECTED BY TRAGEDY
"In the death of Mr. Davenport Los
Angeles has lost a valued citizen," said
Mayor McAleer last night. Mr. Mc-
Aleer was so overcome by the death of
his former associate in the council that
he could hardly speak.
" He was a good soldier," continued
the mayor, "a good husband and a good
father. Los Angeles has sustained a
heavy loss."
Former associates of Mr. Davenport
in the council will attend the funeral ln
a body. Mr. McAleer and ex-Council
man Nofzlger will call on Mrs. Daven
port this morning and tender their sym
pathy on behalf of tho city council, of
which the deceased was a member.
Other associates of Mr. Davenport, In
cluding ex-Mayor M. P. Snyder, spoke
in high terms of the deceased and com
mented on his efficient work in the
council nnd as a member of Important
committees.
COUNCILMAN ED KERN
PAYS TRIBUTE TO WORTH
OF FORMER COLLEAGUE
Councilman Ed Kern, a member of
the city's legislative body with Daven
port, last night paid a fitting tribute
to the work of his former colleague.
Mr. Kern said: The news of Mr.
Davenport's death was certainly a
great shock to me. Knowing him as
I did and having served with him in
the city council, I could not but love
and respect him for his good quali
ties. He was frank and openhearted.
Generous to a fault,, he was always
the first to respond to a call for aid
from the sick or afflicted." Mr. Daven
port was a true and loyal friend.

Jerome Will Not Interfere
It is considered entirely unlikely
that District Attorney Jerome will in

Aetna of Hartford and half a dozen
more of the larger companies to be

SITUATION SERIOUS
Diplomat Talks of Controversy With
the Sultan
By Associated Press.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Wednesday,
Nov. 29.— Delayed.— Speaking to the As
sociated Pres3 today a prominent dip
lomat said:
'The people of tho United States do
not realize the seriousness of the pres
ent situation. Tho tension between the
sultan and the powers is growing dally
and the general feeling of uneasiness Is
increasing, though there is probably no
reason for anxiety as far as the safety
of foreigners Is concerned, especially ln
the capital.
'The powers could not have chosen a
worso time than the present for tholr
ultimatum. They might as well send
an ultimatum to the pope during holy
week ns expect the sultan to do any
thing in the last week of the festival
of Kamazan or during the festival of
Balram.
"The sultan and his ministers are
this week engaged dally from 3 o'clock
In the afternoon In listening to fa
natical discourses by the mullahs (or
priests), who dwell on the past great
ness of the caliphs In a manner which
undoubtedly impresses their audiencw
with the impossibility, certainly with
the undeslrabllity of yielding to the
powers. JISSE?
These performances will soon be over,
however, when matters will probably
assume a more sane and normal course;
but there is no doubt in my mind the
sultan will need on this occasion much
squeezing. He may be content enough
to see certain Islands In the position of
the powers rather than see his hold
on the last of his European possessions
weakened.
'This feeling naturally is shared to a
certain extent by the higher army
authorities, who would be very much
disinclined to see Turkish territory
ceded or anything equivalent to such
cession without striking a blow.
"Should )t be reduced to a question
between Turkey and Bulgaria, Rou
mania or Greece, or between Turkey
and all three, Turkey would most As
suredly be found spoiling for a light.
She has between 300,000' and 400,000 men
in European Turkey today and she
could easily and quickly concentrate
600,000 there. Although Bulgaria has
a well drilled and well equipped army,
Turkey's great numerical superiority
would count for much.
"Turkey clearly Is eager to fight on
this matter with tho bordering coun
tries, and every day that passes with
out witnessing a settlement of the
present difficulties makes it increasing
ly harder for either the sultan or the
powers to give In."
American Interests in Macedonia are
somewhat Inconsiderable. With the
exception of a few scattered mission
aries' establishments they hardly ex
tend beyond Salonica.
At the great reception of November
8, on the occasion of the festival of
rtairlam, the foreign diplomats were
not permitted to occupy tho usual
seats, but were aligned to others from
which they could see nothing.
As a consequence most of the diplo
mats, including Mr. Leishman, the
American minister, left the hall of au
dience.
According to reliable reports there
have been 900 political murders in
Macedonia during tho last eleven
months.

The opportunity of talking to an
American seemed to be particularly
welcome to the emperor, who spoke
in an extremely appreciative vein of
