HE WAS HIS OWN DETECTIVE.
A Diamond Robbery for Which No One Was Punished. How the Suspected Person Managed to Prove His Innocece. A Case Where Circumstantial Evidence Was Upset by a Well-Directed Effort to Find the Person Who Was Guilty. The following story was told by a de tective familiar with the matter to a Herald reporter recently, and was vouched for as an actual fact through out : Some time ago tbe papers had consid erable to cay about a diamond robbery which occurred in ihiß city. The jew els belonged to a well known lady of this city, who had deposited them as security for a loan she had negotiated with a business firm. This firm was composed of two partners, both respect able men, and tbe brother of one part ner was the bookkeeper aud trusted man of the establishment. He was a bright young man, oi good habite, and was engaged to be married to a most estimable young woman. This young man and the two partners were the only persons who knew the combination to tbe safe in which the diamonds were kept, and this safe had inside doors which were locked by a key. One of those kvs the young man* carried on hia key ring, the other bain,?, kept in the keyhole ot the safe door, as this door was not in tended as a res.stance to burglars, being only of thin metal. Now when this young clerk came to the office on the morning of the burglary, he found on opening the outer door that the inner door was locked but tbe key was not in its accustomed place. He took the du plicate key out of bis pocket, opened the door, and there in a pigeon hole reposed the key that ought to hava been in the keyhole. He at once knew that some thing was wrong, and a quick inveßtiga tion showed that the precious diamonds which were tbere tne evening before were gone. The memb rs of trie firm Were summoned ami an investigation was commenced. Every feature of the caee pointed to tbe gui't of the young clerk. He claimed an alibi aud estab liehed it. The young woman he was engaged to lived in a neighboring town, and that evening he visited her and staid all night at the houses, haring a room with a brother of bis fiancee. This brother was certain that the clerk had not gone out of the room during the night; it would have been possible for a man to havo left that place, cay at lv o'clock, driven to Los Angeles, opened the safe and returned to the house again before daylight, but as stated the clerk's room-mate was positive he had not left bis bed during the night. Notwith standing the police and detectives main tained that there could be no doubt about the clerk's being the guilty man, and oertainly no one else could be sus pected. He knew the combination and had the keys. The young man could not prove his i: nocence, but it was decided to let the lor go and not to take auy further steps in u.e matter. The clerk, however, was frantic at bis position; he knew he was innocent, but it seemed as if he must always have the Btigma of being a thief. However, he eet to work as a detecti-e himeelf. He thought out a theory that some one had had a duplicate key made for that in side door, and lie began a pilgrimage to all the places in the city where it would be possible to have a key made. At first without success, but after several days' bunt be discovered a tinker on Los Angeles Btreet who, when shown the key, eaid yes, he had made one just like that for a gentleman a few weeks before. The man had brought au im preßßion in a piece of soap. No, he could not remember the man's appear ance exactly, but he would know him il he saw him again. The clerk was exultant. The tinker's testimony waß.the first ray of light he had seen in his trouble, and he asked him to go to the office and tell what ho knew about tbe key matter to the part ners. The. locksmith consented, and in a few mom nls they entered the place of businesß and the new development was listened v o eagorly by the partners, and they shook hands with the clerk as a token of their returning confidence. "And can you not tell us anything about tbe man who ordered that key?" asked one of the partner*. "No, I can't describe him, but I am sure if I saw him I would recognize bim," answered the locksmith. As he completed his words the door opened and in walked a young man who waß a confidential friend of both part ners, a young fellow who had had the use of tbe office, and who was highly es teemed by all the parties concerned. As he entered the locksmith looked at. him and said: "That's the man who orkered the key from me." Tbe newcomer turned pale and stag gered. "I never took the diamonds. It's a lie. I never took them," he cried. "None of us have mentioned dia monds," quietly replied one of the partners. The newcomer turned whiter than before and faltered his way to a chair. "Now, why did you get the man to make you a key to the inside door of my safe, and how did you open the outside door, and what have you done with the diamonds?" continued the member ol the film who had first spoken. The young fellow stammered a few incoherent words and then confessed everything. He bad managed to learn tbe combination of tbe safe by watching closely when it was opened. Then one day, while pretending to look at some of bis own paoei's which were in the safe, he took the key of the inside door out of the keyhole in which il was, and press ing it into a piece of eoap which he had in hie pocket, ho got an impression oi that. When he got tbe duplicate key made be entered the office one night by means of an ordinary skeleton key, and opening tbe safe took the dia monds. The kej' be found in the key hole of the inside door he put inside of tbe safe and locked the door with the key he had bad made, doing this pur posely to throw suspicion on the clerk who carried the only other key on hit- I'nmense.

All the parties to this story live here yet, and all of tbem, including the guilty one, still oc cupy positions of trust and responsi bility. No one but the parties them selves and the detective who told the story to a Hebald reporter and the re porter know who the men are, and that knowledge will never be divulged, as it could serve no good purpose now. The clerk who was first suspected waa over joyed at his Buccesß at proving his inno cence, and his wedding with the young woman to whom he was engaged soon followed, and he is today one of the most prosperous young fellows in Los Angeles, but it is dollars to doughnuts that he never has forgotten his one piece of detective work. THAT REDUCTION OF SALARIES Compensation of High School Teachers Hero as Compared with Elsewhere. The motion made by Mr. Buehler, in the board of education last "Monday night, to put back the salaries of the high echool teachers to the old figure which prevailed prior to the closing ses sion of the old board, has created some comment in educational circlea, and, feeling it to be a matter of general im port, a Hebald reporter was Bent out to make inquiry as to the merits of the caße. He went first to the office of the city superintendent of common schools, but Mr. Freisner was not in, so he had a few words with Mr. Baker, the chief clerk of the office. "Mr. Baker, you were not present at the meeting on Monday night, at which Mrs. Huglies denied that the outgoing board had increased the salaries of the high school teachers. In reply to Mr. Buehler, she eaid that a reduction had been made for the Bake of economy about a year ago, and the board merely put them back to where they stood be fore the reduction was made. Is that correct?" "Yes," replied Mr. Baker, "that iB all correct in the main. The teachers had been hired at a certain figure and their wages had been scaled off before the expiration of the year for which they had been hired. Mrs. Hughes' resolution merely put them back to the old figure." "Did Mrs. Hughes or any other mem ber of tbe old board know that there was a large deficiency in the echool funds at the time they put the salaries back to the old figure?" "Oh yes, Mr. Frießuer had notified them that thete would he a large defi oiency, although be did not then be lieve it, would go as high a, $10,000," Baii' Mr. Baker. This was all the reporter wanted to know. He then went in eearch of Mre. Hughes, who was chairman of the teach ers' committee in the old board. The lady was Been at her cosy mansion in St. James' park, and, on the reporter making hia bußinc-sa known, the lady eairi: "You see we had a ehrinkaee in val ues here several years ago, and a diffi culty in the collection of taxes for all sorts of purposes In course of time this shrinkage affected the echonlp as well ds anything else, as the number of school children waß constantly on the increase, while the money for the eup port of the schools was as constantly diminishing in amount. About a year ago the board resolved to economize in every possible way and bo reduced the salaries of all tbe high school teachers except the principal and the music teacher. Several of these teach erß were offered better salaries to go elsewhere but many of them had acquired pleasant homes here and did not care to leave. Tfiose who stayed by ua were assured that whenever it could be done their wages would be put back to the old standard; and hence all of them, so far as I know, have rendered as good service for the reduced compen sation as for their original salaries. Hence the retiring board felt that as they had worked nearly 18 inonthß at a scale of compenßation 20 per cent lower than they could have gotten elsewhere, they were fairly entitled to have their Balaries put back to the Btandard of 1890. Do you believe in cheap teach ers'?" asked the lady. The reporter replied he did not; he thought that popular education was one of those thiDga in which that which is compensated the least is paid for the most. "Very well," continued Mrs. Hughas, "I am not afraid to go on record in this matter. I believe in getting the best teacherß one can get, more especially in a high echool, which requires extra care and study to qualify one for the position of a teacher. You get cheap teachers and your children come out of school knowing a little of everything and a good deal of nothing. But if you want yourcliildren thoroughly schooled, you mußt get teachers who have under gone the requisite preparatory discipline thenißelves. Mr. Kierultf, Dr. Boaland other gentlemen on that board were of the same opinion as myself as regarded the reduction of salaries as only tem porary. Hence they voted on the last night of the old board to put them back to the old scale. The present board is composed of men having no experience in any such matters; and one or two of its members are there purely from mo tives of speculation. Time will show whether they or the old board most had tbe interest of tbe schools at heart." BOWERS AND SAN PEDEO. The San Diego Man • hink* Colonel Cralg hlll's Report Is Incorrect. Whispering Willie Bowers, it appears, will not support the San Pedro harbor appropriation matter very forcibly, not withstanding hiß many promises made before election to get all the money pos sible for that project. The San Diego Sun of Mqnday prints the following: Mayor Sherman has a letter from Con gressman Bowers, in anewer to the joint resolution adopted by the council con cerning Engineer Craigbill's report on a harbor for Southern California. Mr. Bowers says the matter will be referred to the river and harbor committee of the bouse. He expresses the opinion that Craighill's report will not have great weight, as the incorrect features will dis credit the entire document. Mr. Bowers says, however, that he is the accredited representative in congrees of Los Angeles aB well as San Diego, and it is his duty to secure aid for an artificial harbor at San Pedro if it can be secured. The let ter will be transmitted to the council to night. But Mr. Bowers will cease to represent the Los Angeles district after March 4tb. Thereafter he will repre sent only the present seventh district, which does not include Los Angelea. To retain an abundant head of hair of a nat ural color to a good old ago, the hygiene of the ■c.ilp must be observed. Apply Hall's Hah: Kenower.

Mr. Bradish offered a resolution to the effect that all officers hereafter appoint ed shall be appointed aB specials on pro bationary Bervice for a term of three months, at the expiration of which time they shall either be assigned to duty as regular policemen or dropped from the force altogether. This waa adopted. APPLICATION FOB LIQUOR LICENSE. Emil Waldeck applied for a retail liquor license, at 106 North Main street. He haa resided here niqe years, and is 32 years of age.

Evidently this large batch oi applica tions was something more than either the mayor or his associate commission ers desired to consider at tbat time of day. Mr. Bosbyebell gave a yawn that betokened the approach of springtide, and Mr. Weldon asked if there was any business on the table aside from ihe pile of applications aforesaid.

Robbed by New York Sharpers He Cheerily Goes to Work Again. In Jim Marseko, the bootblack, Los Angelea has a warm advocate and a devoted lover. He has no use for any place but this, not excepting his sunny Italian home on the bay of Naples, and whenever New York is mentioned Jim emits a groan. He haß been away from Los Angeles for over a year and re turned about two weeks ago bringing his wife and babies with him. Jim formerly blacked boots in a barbershop on First street. He waß very diligent, always attending to business, and by dint of hard work managed to save by degrees several hundred dollars. Some of this he sent to his wife in Italy. Finally he found himself with $150 ahead, so he started for home. All went well until he reacked New York. A couple of men saw him at the depot and asked if he wanted to find a hotel. Yes, Jim wanted one. The men eaid tbey owned one and would take him to it. After walking him some distance they finally got him into a dark alleyway and proceeded to go through him. They took his watch, $150 of hiß own money, and some money entrusted to him by Los Angeles parties, in all about $250. In the ecullle Jim was severely cut and bruised. After yelling lustily for a while, a policeman came and helped him to a drug Btore. Jim stayed in New York for one week and then went to Italy. He worked bard awhile there and finally determined to return to Los Angeles, with tbe present lesult. At present he is the official Bhiner at the Nadeau hotel, and bids fair to save enough money to be able to laugh at his experience with New York sharpers. TABLE DECORATIONS. What Fashion Hat to Bay About the Matter. Fashion regulates not only our wear ing apparel, but in the way in which we decorate our dinner tables aa well. Sim The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard plicity of style has quite crowded out the more ornate fancies of former yeara. Where once a center piece, three or four feet high,obscured completely tbegueete on one side of tbe table from tbose on the other, there is now a fiat arrange ment that cannot possibly interfere with the vision. At a recent holiday dinner a round mirror, on which was placed a white bisque swan, formed the central decora tion. The spreading wings of the bird left a space which was filled with green carnations, while a circle of smilax, green carnations and lilies of the valley ornamented the edge of the mirror. Loosespraye of flowers caught by flow ing ends of ribbons and laid carelessly across the center scarf on a table form very artistic as well as inexpensive dec orations. Silver wicker baskets filled with the new "American Belle" rose and with the handles tied with bows of wide pale blue satin ribbon are very much in vogue. A Leghorn hat, filled with moss, in which long-stemmed roses are set, is an other attractive device. If cut flowers are too expensive, a bit of growing green can be used with de lightful effect and do service many times. Violets are very pretty if used in loose clusters, but when massed together are apt to be rather overpowering in their fragrance. This fact should be remembered in the choice of all Bweet-smelling flowerß, as an odor tbat is delightful emanating from two or three selected blooms will become positively sickening if employed in quantities.—[San Francisco Evening Post. THE BOOM COMING. A San Franclsean's Opinion' of the Situation Here. Mr. Wendall Eaaton, the well known business man of San Francisco, recently returned to that city after a visit to this part of the state, and in an interview published in the San Francißco Post, spoke as follows of what he observed i] Commenting on the general outlook for business Mr. Easton said this morn ing that everything was looking better in the districts he had visited, and that he is also satisfied that the same ele ments which prevail in Southern Cali fornia will before long find their way to thi? part of tbe Btate to its immense benefit. "Our firm has organized its busi ness," eaid the real estate man, "bo aa to give special attention to country lands as well as to tbe city trade. Our excursion work out of Lob Angeles for San Diego has been particularly success ful. The first of theae excursions for the season left Los Angeles on the 10th inst. with 78 land-seekers. The latter are now being entertained by a com mittee of citizens, and the chief ad vantages of the country will be shown them. The second excursion will leave next Friday aud already SO people have been booked at the Los Angeles office." The Pomona Protfreßs, one of South ern California's prominent journals, makes the following remarks of its dis trict. : "Everything is booming in Southern California in country lands, and nur serymen report sales of deciduous treea as three timea greater thia year than any previous year for Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Diego. Nine thousaud acres are to be planted in prunes alone and tbere will be 10 timea aa many acres o! lemons set out this year aa ever known in a previoua sea- Bon." According to Mr. Easton, Los Angeles city property is also feeling the strong movement, although the activity in San Diego seems to be in acreage property along the line of the San Diego flume, out toward the El Cajon valley, where a large area of planting has taken place, mostly in oranges and lemone, with come deciduous trees in the valley proper. THE SINGLE TAX. Mow the Principle Works at Hyatts villo. Washingtonians are watching with interest the workings of a new economic experiment wbich is being tried at Hy ittsville, just outside the limits of tho District of Columbia. Hyattsville, so far as known, is the first place in the world to put the single-tax system into practical operation. Of course it is not complete even there, for the Hyatta villians are still subject to tariff taxes, as well as to the general taxation of tbe state. But all the local taxes of tbe town are now levied on land values alone, irrespective of improvements. The first step towsrd tbe adoption of this plan was taken two years ago, when personal property was exempted from taxation. This change was made by general concent, and has worked so well that nobody proposes to go back to the old rule. But when the town commis sioners last year determined to exempt improvements on real estate as well, there waß a row. The capitalist who owned two acres of vacant land in the center of tbe town and was holding it for a rise, did not relish the idea of paying as much in taxeß as a dozen families that had built cottages on tbe same amount of ground. An anti-single tax party immediately sprang into ex istence, and an indignation meeting was called and resolutions adopted request ing the commissioners to retreat or re- Bign. They declined to do either, and proceeded to collect the taxes under the new syßtem. The next step of the antis was an appeal to the courts, and thia is Btill pending, although the first judge who heard the case dismissed the complaint, and the prospects of a re versal of hie deciaion are not flattering. Meanwhile the town has been prosper ing. More buildings have been put up there within the past six months than in any similar period of its history. The total revenuea have been largely in creased, and at the same time the Bmall hOßee-holdere have found their taxeß re duced by from 25 to 75 per cent. But the large land-holders are stilt unrecon ciled, and are working industriously to defoat the single tax commi'eioners at the coming election in May. The ningle taxers are equally active, and Hyattß viile is having a political campaign to which the presidential fight was merely an undress rehearsal,—[S. E. Moffett in Stockton Mail. Highest of all in Leave&ing Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report A SETTLER'S OPINION. THK SITUATION DESCRIBED ON SEC TION THIRTY-SIX. The Original Land Owners Will Not Kesort to Violence but Demand the Right to Keep Posses sion of Their Own. Tbe Herald has published tbe tacts about the decision of the United States supreme court regarding some land north of Pomona, technically described as Sec. 36, TIN,R9W, S. B. M. The land waß settled upon aa state land, and the holders getting a title from the etate supposed it was good and have im proved their holdings. The decision re ferred to holds tbat the Btate had no title, tbat the land belonged to tbe fed eral government, and some real estate men immediately filed upon it, and ap parently intend to dispossess the men who have worked on it, and put their money in it, and who it would seem should have the chance to perfect their title. The following communication gives the situation from the point of view of one of the Bettlers. Editors Herald: As there have been several dispatches sent out in re gard to violence in the contest about our section 36, I can say tbat as to our Bettlers, wbile we have been exasper ated almost beyond human endurance, it ia our earnest intention to keep with in the bounds of tbe law. However, we aak. Have we not just grounds for a righteous indignation? Many of ua have lived upon this land for years in the full faith that our Btate title was as good a- the beet; and had we known otherwise we would have been only too glad to have had it recti fied, if such proved to be tbe case. And now a dispute arises between the atate and the general government about this title. Without the knowledge or consent of the real owners some land aharka,who have not the faintest shadow of a moral claim upon our lands and homes, are permitted to put a ding upon them. The only inexcusable excuse they could offer when they came and demanded our homes wbb that if '"we" had uot tiled upon them some one else would. By the Game logic why should "we" not go to tapping tills, breaking banks and holding up railroad trains, for if "we" don't do it some one else will. To show the Btatua of our cast; let me give the following as a sample in which many homes are included: Mark Rickels, a hard-working young man, by day's work and economy saved enough money to purchase a few acres of this land, planted it to trees of his own raising, built a small house and haß been enabled to give his old motiier a home in which to spend her declining yeara. J. L. Marshall, an honest, hard-work ing old man, 73 years of age, with hia wife, bought some of this land, and by their united help have established them selves in a nice borne in wbich to spend their last days. T. S. Oldham, 70 yearß of age, haß put the earnings of years of toil into a good home here. The writer and hiß wife have a nice little home of five acres, Upon which we have lived for eight years. We hove it all planted and in bearing trees; a com fortable home and its necessary sur roundings, all of which ia the fruit of our own toil. Thia is our home, the home of our little children. And these came sharks who would wreat the bard and honestly earned realty from laboring men, who would turn from their comfortable homes aged people, who would send adrift from the only Bhelter they have upon God's earth wives, mothers and little children, are today poßing with bats in hand be fore the public of Lob Angeles as gentle men, ac business men, respectfully soliciting its patronage in their business relatione.

This popularity at home, where Hood's Sarsa parilla and its proprietors have been known for many years, could not continue if the medicine did not possess merit And these facts should certainly convince people in other sections of the country that Hood's Sarsaparilla Is a good, reliable medicine.
