Former guesta of tht> Broadway Van
Nuys, now scattered at various hotels,
arose early yesterday morning and be-
Kirn a search for their valuables, which
th*y left behind in their hurry to es
cape from the flre which destroyed the
structure Sunday morning. Mrs.
Thomas H. Benton was made happy by
thfi recovery of $5000 worth of Jewelry
which was found in a drosscr drawer
i>y a traveling man.
The ruins were well guarded by the
polico, who gave aid In the search and
succeeflpd in rinding many watches
which were Btlll ticking away under
pillows. L. , A. Falck of San Francis
co found two of his trunks in good
condition and their contents uninjured.
Airs. Falck lost seveml hundred dol
lars' worth of jewelry and clothing.
A New York traveling man went to
Ills room . not expecting to find any
thing of value, but found a water
soaked pair of trousers in which were
a check for $125 and $65 in cash.
Tales of Bravery
Many tales of bravery nnd many
humorous Incidents were told yester
day by the men who escaped from the
hotel as they sat around the lobbies
of. other houses, clad in perhaps the
only garments that they possess.
While the fire was burning its
fiercest some one reported that there
was a woman on the fourth story.
Not stopping to think of self-preserva
tion a traveling man ran upstairs and
kicked in the door, but found the room
empty.
If there are any persons who should
be designated as heroes the guests say
they are Roy Goff, chief clerk, and
Kobert Bradley, the elevator boy. The
two worked like Trojans from the time
they were first alarmed until every
person was out of the building. Goff
wtated yesterday that the elevator was
unsteady and would jump from one
lloov ■to another and that they could
not stop it when they wanted to.
Elevator in Tantrum
When they come down from the top
floor the elevator would go to the base
ment and Jump up again. As they
passed the first floor Goff would push
the guests one at a time out of the
elevator. He continued this until each
load was disposed of.
Bradley carried the four-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
Searles down the stairs and out Into
the street. He received a liberal
Christmas present from Mr. Searles
yesterday.
To the fact that a friendly poker
game was in progress, keeping six of
the guests up until an early morning
hour, Is probably due the saving of
many lives. ;.Those engaged in the
same rushed about the hotel awaken
ing many persons and wel'e the last
to leave tho burning building. Not one
of them saved as much as a tooth
brush, as one of them expressed it
yesterday, except thu clothing they
hud on.
Will J. Denny, representing an east
ern shoe firm, visited his room yester
day and found an order book and two
of hits sample cases undamaged. He
stated that they were worth $500 to
him. .•',-.
• All of the hotel books and mail were
saved by Night Clerk H. T. Murcli.
The. mall is being distributed today
from the Broadway hotel, where tem
jiordry quarters have been established.
The proprietors of the Broadway Van
Nuyd, Messrs Clark & Forsyth, stated
yesterday that they were unprepared
to say as to whether they would con
tinue in the hotel business or not, but
that they probably would, if not in the
old quarters, new outs. They said that
Ihb. question of building rests with the
owners of the building, the Henry
Martz. estate, but that it is their do
i-:ire to have the building rebuilt ut
once.
H. C. Eagan, president of tho Van
Nuys Broadway Catering company,
Buld yesterday that hu is anxious to
attain establish his business, but that
he liuk had no conference with the
owners of the building. He stated that
his totals fully $11,000 and that he car
ried but $2000 insurance.

SANTA CLAUS VISITS CHILDREN
WHO AWAIT HIM AT HOSPITAL
Santa Claim pnld a visit to the
Children's hospital yesterday and sev
enteen little sufferers, have forgotten
the aches nnd pains In their tired
bodies In the mere Joy Of living and
being eared for.
The scene in the medical ward of
the honpital yesterday was enough to
mnke the pesslmint hide his face In
shame— such a little thing made the
children hAppy.
Santa Claua not only went to the
hospital but he went equipped with a
pack arranged to suit each little one
for whom the presents were Intended.
Trains that will wind up and run on
tracks, Just the kind that three of the
boys have dreamed about for many
a long month, caused those same little
lads to be transported Into a land
where aches and pains are not.
Little Mother Mads Happy
Krledn, tho little mother of the hos
pital, who piicnds no much time reliev
ing the sufferings of the other children
that she has little time to consider her
own, received the coveted doll, and
her motherly little heart was satis
fled ns it has soldi mi been before.
Willie, the boy with the blue eyes
and the fine sensitive face, who was
willing to trust everything to Kanfn,
found that his trust hud not been mis
placed, and Banta Is still one of the
idols of his life.
Wallace received the much longed
for automobile and one of the nurses
put on his coat and laid him on the
lloor where he could watch it run.
Conche, the Mexican baby, hugged a
rag doll in her arms and was su
premely happy, Another tiny baby
tooed Just as delightedly over a rattle
with bells on It.

mas Day Away From
Home
More people ate Christmas dinner at
the hotels yesterday than have ever
before visited Los Angeles hostelrles
In one day. It was the plan of the hotel
managers to serve dinner from noon
until 7:30 o'clock in the evening but it
was ten o'clock before the last guests
had been served.
So many requests were made for res
ervations that the hotels refused them
after an early hour In the afternoon.
All of tho hotels opened up the avail
able space which they could turn Into
dining rums and hired much extra help.
Even then they were hardly able to'
take care of the guests and many of
them not only had to wait to be served
but had to wait for seats In the dining
rooms.
The hotel representatives of the local
newspapers were the guests of the Hol
lenbeck Hotel company and enjoyed
the repast more than* usual on account
of the strenuous work incidental to
big and stirring events of Christmas
eve.
The idea of taking the family dinner
at one of the hotels Instead of having
an old fashioned Christmas dinner at
home has become popular in Los An-i
geles and these family gatherings, in
connection with the regular patronage,
taxed the hotels to their utmost capac
ity to take care of their guests.

MUCH TROUBLE AT
BIG LINER'S SAILING
KISSING BEE, SPAGHETTI AND A
FREE FIGHT
White Star Line's Republic Held Up
Two Hours Because of Overplus
of Italians and Their Favorite Food.
From Bussing to Beating
special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Dec. 25.— Four thousand
pounds of spaghetti, two stowawa ys
and a free for all fight yesterday de
layed the departure for Naples of the
White Star liner Republic nearly two
hours. It was the beginning of the
homeward rush of Italians who, after
getting together a little money In this
country, sail every fall to spend th«
winter In the home country.
There were more than 2000 Italians in
the Republic's steerage and the scene
on the pier before the big ship sailed
was one of much excitement, each Ital
ian apparently wishing to kiss every
other Italian. The result xtas that when
the two tons of spaghetti arrived the
dock employes had the hardest kind of
a time getting it on board, it being al
most impossible to get to the gangplank
through the crowd of hysterical , Ital
ians.
Roundsman Creel of tho Charles
street station, who was in command of
the police on the pier, had to send for
assistance in order to preserve a
semblance of order. While the spa
ghetti was being placed on board and
the kissing bee was in full blast tho
free for all fight began.
The principal vletlm was Dominlco
Guanima of Pittsburg, one of the home
bound Italians. Guanlmo was on his
way to the pier and was crossing West
street when along came a ragmufrln
parade. One of the parader?, a little
fellow dressed like an Itulian, did not
like Guanlmo"B looks, and Immediately
made a remark that did not please the
Italian. Dominlco poked the youngster
with his umbrella and Immediately the
parade in full blast the freo for all
fight began. '■ •■ ;,
The boys punched the Italian and
poked him with sticks, and when Sal
vatore Olslo, a truckman, picked him
up he was badly cut and bruised. Olslo
took the injured man to a drug store,
where his wounds were attended, after
which he hauled him to the pier and
placed him on the ship.
The trouble did not end with the res
cue of Quanlmo nor the plucing on
board of the spaghetti, for Ju/st before
the liner sailed two stowaways were
found on board. They had hidden them
selves In tlio hold, but were promptly
put ashore. •

the cuts they received by the falling
glass, but the physicians who are at
tending them say that they will all

Cause Remains Mystery
Superintendent JV. J.. Atkm of the
Los Angeles Railway company stated
yesterday that the Hollywood car was
not badly wrecked but that ■ the other
cars arc almost beyond repair on ac
count of being telescoped In the double
collision Sunday night at the corner of
Spring and Second streets.
"It is more than likely," said Mr.
Akin yesterday, "that the trouble with
the machinery of the runaway car
never will be known. The impact of
that car against the one at the foot
of the hill Und two against the Holly
wood car was so great that it twisted
the machinery on our cars out of shape
and ruined ull chance of determining
anything by the apparatus itself.
"I cannot find anything that points
toward the fact that Motorman Mlllan
was to blame and I am proud of the
way the employes stuck to their posts
In time of danger. I consider that we
are very fortunate that no one was
killed."
Other officials stated that they be
lieved that none of the employes of
the company were to blame and that
the accident was unfortunate and yet
fortunate for the passengers who all
escaped with their lives— that it was
unavoidable and yet almost providen
tial.

of men as motormen, Inspectors and
mechanics that enn be found. From
personal observation I know that the
company hns nn excellent system of
Inspection and that the rules of thfl In
spectors ure rigidly udhered to.
"Regarding tho accident Sundny
night, I believe it was In every wny
unn voidable. We must remember thnt
the finest piece of mechanism may un*
accountably get out of order at most
unexpected times and In an unforaeen
manner. So long no we have street
enrs we shall have nccldp/its. It Is the
desire of all railway companies to
minimize the possibility of these acci
dents. The Los Angelea Railway Offi
cials are no exception to this rule and
they nre daily tlolng all thnt human
effort can do to make accidents un
likely and to throw every safeguard
about their passengers.
Most Powerful Brake Made
"The magnetic brakes are made of
the best material that can be produced.
They are much more carefully con
structed than any other brakes on the
market. The magnetic brakes are cal
culated to hold cars on grades where
any other pattern of brakes would be
useless. '„, *
"The brakes oit the Second strfot
lino cost twice ns much as any strnlght
nir brakes on the market and nre, from
n standpoint of safety, worth many
times as much.
"Air brakes uro not uhcY! where roads
operate csirs on grades over 3 per cent.
Air brakes on such grades would slide
the wheels and the cars would Blip
right into danger. The magnetic brakes
hold on rails which are covered with
grease, ice, sleet or water.
"To show the method of operation
of the magnetic brakes is to convince
one of Its superiority over air brakes.
In applying the mngnetlc brake the
first movement of the motorman Is to
cut off the power from the motors.
"By means of the brake controller
the fields of the motors are reversed
and while the car moves the four
motors become generators and produce
a current which Hows through the
brake magnets to the ground, the rail
in this case forming the ground con
nection, and the magnets adhere to the
rails and drug backwards, thus apply
ing the brakeßhoes to the wheels of the
car.
Accident Was Unavoidable
"The brake effects are the back tort,
that is to say the back pressure on the
motors, which are really at this point
dynamos for the brake appliance; the
drag of the track shoe on the rails
and the wheel shoes brushing again?t
the wheel. Summarized it is the re
tarded current, dragging track shoe
and 'clamping brukeshoe which ho.da
the heavy car on any grade.
"The brakes are examined by an in
flexible system of inspection. The
motormen nre Intelligent, efficient n«d
alert. I am convinced that the acci
dent, under these circumstances, could
not have been foreseen or, prevented.
"That this motorman was competent
and gritty there can be no doubt. That
was shown by his action in staying at
his post and doing all he could to stop
his cur nnd when he found that Impos
sible ho stood bravely nt his post and
was there when tho crash came."
