Long Experience on Bench Teaches

Couples Are Far from
"I" I Bin rot of (lie pel -.re-inn III. 'I be
lieves nil mnrrlagen are made in
heaven. 1 have had lone experience
lnI In shHi nffalm In my career on tne
superior bench of U>s AiiKeW/s county,
and from many ra»e« I have seen I
have reason to believe that the lives
endured by pome »< these young people
who marry In haste to repent at leis
ure In hell." •■>.'•
Such was lll'' statement of Judge B.
N Smith or department one of tha
per lor court Tuesday afternoon In
handlns down a decision In favor of
the defendant's cross complaint In the
divorce proceeding* of Mrs. Alda Gie-
FchPti against Ootllob Olesclien.
The fane had bepn on i rial before
Judge Smith for the past two days and
late yesterday afternoon, before the
defendant hud even taken the stand
to testify In his behalf, the Judge re
fused to hear any further evidence and
granted the man ft divorce on tin
(.round of desertion.
Probably a score of witnesses were
heard In the case ami oven with their
1 ntlre testimony summed Up there a«
nothing of 0 nature to have caused j
««Uch an acute marital rupture, except
the constant little things which so!
often cause Incompatible young per
form to separate.
• Thr young people married In San
Francisco March 2, 1904, and three days
later arrived in Los Angeles and went
to live wllh the groom's family on
Boyle avenue, The husband, who was
28 years of age at the timo r his
marriage, is a rcond-iookine young 01
low with an excellent position In Los
Aiirplpr. and his first effort was to
provide a beautiful little home for his
Hut trouble camp quickly. The
bride's parents wrote to her every day.
According to the evidence in court, the
yomiK woman frequently received sev
eral letters a day from her people
In the north, and those letters pener
aiiy caused sorrow. The husband's
mother testified that her dHUKIUer-ln
law was generally In terns after re
ceiving her morning letter, and fre
quently spent the greater part of the
day writing answers. '
Not Made in Heaven
The mother-in-law also testified that
Mrs. Qleschen had told her that she
had married young Giesehen despite
her mother's protests mid objections.
Just before the birth of the baby
and just after the arrival of the little
Stranger (rouble occurred in large
quantities between husband and wife,
the little bride complaining that her
husband did not care for her and was
cruel in his lark of consideration.
After the baby'B birth the wife, ac
cordlng to the conclusion of the court
from the evidence produced, became
afflicted with hallucinations, and many
of her allegations set forth in her
complaint for divorce from her hus
band on the ground of cruelty were
said to bo hallucinations of that period.
' After. the court had listened to the
greater portion of the evidence Judge
Smith stopped the proceedings before
tfee»»A-ouijg, man who alleged desertion
had time to complete his case. •
"It Is . evident," said Judge Smith,
"that these young people cannot live
together and would never he happy
together. again. . 1 am not: of that per
suasion that Imagines all marriages are
made In heaven. My long experience
on the bench has shown me that many
marriages where the parties are not
properly mated are hells on earth. I
"I believe that the divorce is a safety
valve, the outlet for mismated couples.
If some of those good people who
decry and condemn divorces could see
some of the married men I have had
hefore me, both in tho criminal and
divorce courts, they would change their
minds about the divorce question.
"I believe that this man failed to
appreciate his wife's condition at that
time and he probably was careless.
Rut this poor girl has failed to make
nut a case of cruelty. The young man
asks divorce on desertion, and as they
cannot ever live happily together and
he has made out his case, I shall grant
him his decree."
The wife was given all the silver
warn, glassware and valuable presents
she received for wedding gift?, together
with a fair slice of community prop

Fiftieth Year of Residence in Los Angeles.
Long Ago Laid Foundation for For
tune by Shrewd Foresight
HALF a century an Angeleno, Louis
Roeder. celebrates todny.
Fifty years ago today one of
the few remaining of the pioneers ar
rived in Los Angeles. He is Louis
Rosder, then a young German wood
worker, and he came south from San
Francisco on the steamer Senator in
It was not an easy trip down and
not a big city that he found at this
end of the line, but even then it had
possibilities enough to induce a young
man to stake his whole chance on its
future, and Louis Roeder did not throw
that chance away.
AVlth httl? or nothing but his hands
and the trade he knew well he started
to make a fortune. The fact that he
owns several business blocks, residence
property and much other valuable real
estate in Los Angeles is sufficient tes
timony to the success of his ambitions. 1
With each twelve months the pio
neers of the CJO's are becoming fewer.
Mr. Roeder has seen hl» comrades ih
the battles of those early days die one
by one and It has been one of his
greatest hopes that he might live to
celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of.
Witnessed Stirring Scenes
The humble beginning of this pioneer;
may serve as a monument of encour
agement to young- men of today. When
he first came here he began working
at his trade and part of his duty each
day was the placing of from twenty to
thirty draw bands on the leaking wood
en pipes of the city's water system,
which was soon afterward turned over
with great glee by the padres to a
At this time the population was over'
half native Spanish and the rest
Americans, English, Germans, French
and Irish. At that time there were
no Chinese, but It was not long before
they made their appearance.
One of the early experiences of Mr
Roeder came with the advent of the'
Chinese. It was not long after they
arrived that they started their tongs
and societies and soon trouble began
to brew. One day there was a disturb
ance and a Chinese bullet landed In a
white man's body. |
The whole town turned out for re
taliation and before the sheriff or his
assistants could remove the offenders

to jail the citizens hud them strung
up to any post or tree they could
find. Four of these were hanged on
a prairie schooner ill front of the shop
in which Mr. Roeder was employed.
Wedding a Popular Event
Cupid is just as much in evidence
In small towns as he is in large towns
and thus it was that Louis Roeder and
■\Vilhelmlna Huth one day issued in
vitations to a wedding.
It was in ISB6 and the entire town
was invited to attend. Every one took
a holiday and went to the wedding.
There was a church ceremony and then
the entire town went to the Old Mission
where the banquet was spread. Every
wagon. Saddle horse and conveyance
of every other kind was at a premium
that day and those -who could not ride
started early and walked.
After the wedding there was the
housekeeping an <J it was begun in a
small house at the corner of Fourth
and Main streets, where the Farmers
and Merchants' bank stands today.
The Germans of those days not only
contributed an important clement to
the industries and business of Los An
geles, but also to Its amusements. They
organized themselves into a singlnit
society whose first meetings were at
George Lehman's — "Round House
George's." They next moved into
quarters in Don Abel Steams block
on Los Angeles street and as they
Increased In numbers they built old
Turner hall. The Turnverein Germania
hall mi Main street is now the home
of this once small singing society and
all through its life Louis Roeder has
been a prime mover.
Incidents of interest in this pioneer's
life have been many and he could tell
stories by the hour that would make
the eyes of young Los Angeles open
Wide with wonder. Through every
thing, even his two terms in the city
council, Louis Roeder has been hon
ored ai a man and a citizen.
Now that he is provided with enough
.Mid more of this world's goods he
can sit back and watch the young men
Of today forge ahead on the founda

for their breakdown Is hard to explain.
They gave way the same as a man does
when he is overworked. You can Im
agine what they have had to do since
the recent cold spell sot in. as we had
only 0 small amount of gas in reserve
and were totally unprepared for it.
Explains Gas Famine
"The average person who has had no
experience with . generators has little
knowledge of their workings and can
not understand how anything of the
nature of a gas famine could occur.
When I tell you that we have men em
ployed at our plant at all times, work
ing: with might and main to keep the
supply of gas up so there will be no
complaints, you will understand that
we cannot be blamed when mien on
accident occurs. As Boon as the gas
was turned Into the mains the num
ber of complaints which had been re
ceived at the gas office since Satur
day began to decrease, and the officials
could again hear the ringing of the
telephone bell with a feeling of ease."
lt has been estimated that more than
2 001) complaints were received at the
'gas office during the famine. These
were from Indignant consumers who
held the company, responsible for the
lnconvenience to which they were put.
in addition to this the telephones In the
mayor's office and In the office of tho
gas and meter Inspector wem kept
ringing by persons who supposed it
was up to the city to compel the corn
[i;inv to furnish gas.

The Christmas Spirit
By F. P. DUNNE
Mr. Dooley 's article means a thrill of plea-
sure for tens of thousands of readers. You'll
have to £o batik to Thackeray or Dickens to
jet such a rare presentation of the Christmas
feeling as you rind in this Dooley article. It

Science, St. Skinflint
and Santa Claus
By WILLIAM ALLEN WHITE
Here is a fantasy of Christmas that is a joy.
It's a beautiful sermon in disguise. You hardly
know it's a sermon as you read it; you think
it's just good fun, but before you are through
you are glowing with the stimulation of Mr.
White's wisdom, and you are feeling that life
is happy and human nature is pretty good after
all in the main. You won't get anything better
Stories — Stories— Stories
A beautiful child story by George Madden Martin, that might
almost be called "Emmy Leu in the Army,* the beginning of a series
of lales about "Letitia, Nuriery Corps. U. S. A.* — a frank, lovely,
little girl in the background of Army Life.
A thrilling;, humorous narrative of a great fight called v "Tooth
for a Tooth by Edward Peple, the author of "The Prince Chap."
A fine touching, little story of married life by Mary Stewart
Cutting — amusing and tender, almost tragic, a happy burst of
sentiment at the end.
Another one of the series of "Adventure! in Contentment" called
the "Joy of Possession," a chapter of life such as we would all like
to live — wholesome, satisfying, true.
A beautiful love story — "The Great Refusal* — by Dorothy
Canfield, the old theme refreshed with power and vigor and circum-
stance, making it ever new.
