BLAME DEATH
TO GAS FAMINE
MAN FOUND DEAD WITH JETS
OPEN
Believed to Have Left Coeki Turned

tempt to Secure i
Light
The gas famine which has prevailed
ln Lob Angeles during the last two
nights is blamed for the death of Gun
Severans, a Belgian, whose body was
discovered In his room at 432 East
Third Btreet, by the landlady, Mrs.
Flora Sautter, yesterday noon.
When the door was opened the gnu
was found to be flowing full force with
the Jet turned on. Severans had re
tired In the dark, according to the land
. lady, owing to the lack of gas.
"Mr. Severans was with us in the
parlor Monday night," said Mrs. Saut
ter. "He retired about 10 o'clock and
said he supposed he would be com
pelled to go to bed in the dark. Yes
terday morning I knocked on his door,
but as he did not answer I thought he
did not wish to get up, no did not knock
again until after 12 o'clock. "When I
received no reply I asked Ed Cox. an
other roomer, to look over the transom.
He saw the man was dead and called
the police. I do not believe Severans
committed suicide, but think he turned
the eras on to see if he could light it
and when he found that Impossible
neglected to turn it off."
SAYS HUSBAND CRUELLY
CRITICISES HER DRESS
YOUNG WOMAN APPLIEB FOR A
DIVORCE
Declares Spouse Humiliated Her In
the Presence of Guests at a Hotel.
Case Is Taken Under Consideration
to Clear Up Tangle
Because, as she alleged, her husband
took exception to the style of evening
garb she wore and frequently humilated.
her by making slighting remarks about
her clothing where others could hear,
Mrs. Virginia L. Brown, a beautiful
southern girl, yesterday began her suit
for divorce before Judge Conrey of de
partment 5 of the superior court.
Mrs. Brown's gentle manner and the
humiliation she showed at being com
pelled to tell her troubles in a divorce
court won her many friends and seemed
to create a favorable impression with
the court.
Her husband, J. A. Brown, a young
man of considerable means, still lives
in South Carolina, where they were
married July 3, 1904. Brown, according
to the evidence, lived off his income
without work and spent most of his
time annoying his pretty wife.
On many occasions, when the young
woman attired herself herself, in her
most charming garments in order to
please her husband when they had
planned to attend some evening affair
in the good old southern style, he
would, according to evidence, make
slighting remarks about her, such as:
"You spent enough time upstairs to
have dressed yourself. You only look
half dressed now."
These remarks made before guests at
the hotel where they were staying, and
even before strangers, caused the young
bride such humiliation that, with her
relatives, she left her ungallant master
and came west.
Owing to some mistake in the service
of papers the case was taken under
consideration until the tangle can be
straightened out.

COUNTY HOSPITAL
Pleads with Judge to Give Him Sus
pended Sentence, and Promises
He Will Go to Work and Reform.
Charged with Vagrancy
Charged with being a vagrant and a
common drunkard Harry Ballard. a
pitiful specimen of humanity, stood
before Police Justice Austin in his court
yesterday afternoon and pleaded for
mercy.
"I have never drank a drop of In
toxicants in my life, judge," he said,
"but I am a user of morphine. I
learned to use it three months ago in
the county hospital, where I was sent
on account of stomach trouble, with
which I have suffered during the last
year. The physicians gave me mor
phine to relieve my sufferings and I
continued Its use when I left there a
month later. I am willing to work
and if you will give me a "floating"
sentence so I can leave the city I will
plead guilty to the charges. I do not
want to go to jail and will agree to
leave Los Angeles or go to work at
once here if you will give me a
chance."
After hearing the story Justice Aus
tin decided to hold the young man until
this morning-, when ho will be brought.

take charge of his case.
Ballard was arrested by Policeman
Roy Alltn Sunday night. According
to the police, be has become a con
firmed user of morphine and seldom
works. It is thought if he is given a
thirty (lavs' sentence on the chain
gang the morphine will got nut of his
system and he may not again begin its
use.
WANT ONE MORE INSPECTOR
Health Board Will Assure Good Meat
When the System I. Per.
fected
The employment of one additional
meat inspector will enable the health
department to Inspect and stamp the
meats from every packing house and
abattoir that sells to the Lob Angeles
trade. Only the larger packing houses
now. have their meats inspected by the
government inspector, while the smaller
fry are unable to secure inspection.
This latter difficulty will be obvl
ated when the system of meat Inspec
tion by Los Angeles inspectors Is per
fected. li will first be necessary for
Hi, council to pass an ordinance pro
viding for meat inspection. Such an
ordinance haa been drawn up by the
city attorney and recommended by the
health department.
, AH meat must then bear either the
Kovernment stamp or the nUnip of the
J -oii Angeles inspector. •
