THE GANG IS BROKEN UP.
Youthful Highwaymen Are
Now in Jail.
Lloyd Damron and Bert Woolley
Complete the Gang.
A Tory Systematic Scheme Organized
by Boys to Rob Chinese Vege
table Peddlers on Their
Way from Town.
Two more youthi, who started out to
imitate the .lames boys, were arrested
yesterday for complicity in the recent
robberies at Garvanza and Glendale. It
looks aa though the gang of young
criminals has been broken up.
It will be remembered that Smith and
McCracken were arreated the night be
fore almoat in tbe act of robbing Ah
Pon.
Theae young readereof lnrid literature
gave the "snap" away yeaterday to the
officers, and now their partners are
aleeping beneath the same roof.
One of the boya arreated yesterday
waa Lloyd Damron, aon of the attorney
wbo created considerable notoriety for
himself in this city some time ago. The
other boy arrested was Bert Woolley.
whose father resides at 717 Temple
street. Young Smith and McCracken
were very contradictory in tbeir state
ments, but they gave out enough infor
mation to justify tbe officers in making
tbe additional arrests.
Young Damron was arrested at Gar
vanza by Deputy Sheriff Critz, and Bert
Woollev was arrested by Deputy Sheriff
William Cline at the boy's residence.
He is 18 yeara of age.
Some time ago young Woolley ran
away from home, beating his way to
San Francisco and back. When he re
turned he took a well-laid plan to not
let bis parents know tbat be was here.
He went to the Damron boy's home at
Garvanza and wrote a letter, addreaßing
it to Lloyd Damron. He headed and
dated it Freano, to throw hia parents off
tbeir guard. He then got young Dam
ron to go to his, Woolley's, parents and
show the letter, which plan was carried
out successfully.
This well-laid scheme was entered
into by the gang of would-be terrors to
jive time for them to commit tbe depre
cations, as Woolloy's parents did not
mow where be was.
The boys organized themselves by
mrohaaing revolvers and plenty of cart
idges. Some of them had two revolvers
tnd were prepared to holdup the biggest
Ihinese vegetable peddler in that neck
>' woods.
There bad been three holdups, in each
nstance the victims being robbed. The
fleet of the depredations was soon felt
n tbe community and tbe residents al
raya locked tbeir doors at night. It is
bought tbat the four boys are the
uilty persons and are responsible forall
he robberies that have taken place in
he vicinity of Garvanza and Glendale.
The one act of Woolley in deceiving
ia parents as to his whereabouts is
nougb to show tbe methodical style in
■hich all the hold-ups were to be made,
he entire gang will probably be Bent to
ac Whittier reform school.
Deputy Sheriff William Cline stated
tst night that the Chinese peddlers fail
> stop at their old eating house on the
lendale road on account of the robber
is. They hurry home before the shades
' night, or youthful highwaymen, over
ike them. The boys have created
inch indignatian in the vicinity by
leir systematic manner of holding up
binamen.

The Ba~e,Called In.
Dne of the most noticeable changes in
ihion this season is that which affects
3 dressing of tho hair. The "fringe"
s been gradually giving place to softly
,ved bandeaux, and the bandeaux are
creeping gradually lower down until the
return seems imminent to tho puffed and
waved bandeaux to be seen in the por
traits of Jennie Lind taken along in the
fifties. To young and delicate faces the
stylo has an agreeable piquancy and
quaintness, but to women past their first
youth or with stroiig, coarse features the
bang has a softening effect much to be
desired.
Another style now gaining favor and
one becoming To round faces with low
foreheads is that of turning the hair
back from the forehead loosely in a twist
that is lost in the light coils and puffs ar
ranged in the middle of the forehead.
In this stylo of coiffure the front hair is
parted off on either side ami twisted in
tl)r- old fashioned waj into two rolls.—

RAILROAD COLLISIONS.
Horrible Results of Some of the Latest
Suggest Tbat Something: Most Be Done.
A majority of the so called accidents
on our railroads in the last three or four
months have not been caused by tho fail
ure of rolling stock, bridges or roadbed
to stand the strain put npon them, but to
the terrible carelessness of employees in
places of great responsibility. The col
lision in Michigan was caused by the
reckless disobedience of plain orders on
tbe part of the officers in charge of one
of the trains. Apparently these officers
readily took the risk of continuing be
yond the point where they had been di
rected to stop, knowing that at any time
they might meet another fast train on
the same track. It will be noted that
they were able to escape by jumping off
just before tbe collision tbat killed 26
passengers. %
The collision in Illinois a few hours
earlier between a limited express and a
train of coal cars could not have taken
place if those in charge of tbe freight
train had exercised ordinary care and
observed the fundamental rules of the
service. These are the latest additions
to an appalling list of blunders and in
stancea of reckless disobedience which
have caused great loss of life since the
beginning of last summer, and this latest
collision, followed by a fire that left only
the charred bodies of many victims who
could not be identified, is the worst of
all.
It is true that in the last few months
many railroad lines have been overtaxed
by a sudden and exceptional growth of
passenger traffic which has found them
poorly equipped both as to the safe
guards which are needed and the em
ployees required for the work. It is prob
able also that on some roads employees
who were trustworthy under old condi
tions have become untrustworthy ami
even reckless under the strain of over
work. But, while the people generally
may be interested in discussion of the
underlying causes of such a series of
dreadful events, they are more deeply
interested in suggestions as to the action
which can be taken to prevent such
carelessness and disregard for the safety
of passengers, as have been shown this
year.
Are the penalties which a company
may suffer heavy enough? The loss of
property in a collision is not an impor
tant loss for a great corporation. The
conviction of a conductor, or an engineer,
or a train dispatcher on a charge of man
slaughter can exercise very little re
straining influence upon tbe company
that employed him. But if it were pos
sible to collect through the courts large
sums in damages for the lives that are
lost the companies would be much more
careful both in the supervision of their
employees and in the establishment of
block signals and other safeguards.
For the 26 lives sacrificed in Michigan
the relatives of the victims can recover
from the company almost $180,000, or
$5,000 for each life. If this limit, which
is imposed by the laws in most of the
states, were removed, such terrible
slaughter as this would be so expensive
to a company that the establishment of
approved safeguards would not be neg
lected, and every possible effort to insure
tbe efficiency of train officers and the
preservation of passengers' lives would
be made. Under present conditions a
railroad company commonly suffers a
much smaller loss in money when a pas
senger is killed than when one is crip
pled.—New York Times.
WHY HE KILLED HIMSELF.
A Seaman With a Good Becord Could Not
Endure a Beprimand.
John Neil, a seaman in the United
States navy, serving on board the re
ceiving ship Independence, Mare Island
navy yard, was reprimanded the other
morning for having overstaid his leave
of absence, and for punishment was or
dered restricted to the ship for a period
of 60 days. As soon as Neil received his
decree of punishment he went below
into the ship bagroom, where he was
found later with a bullet wound in bis
right temple. He was a man of unusual
distinction, having received medal hon
ors from congress for bravery and mer
itorious conduct.
He enlisted in the navy in 1861, served
with Farragut at Mobile Bay and lashed
the admiral in the rigging of the Hart
ford, where he stood by his side through
out the fight. Since the war Neil has
served continuously in the navy and
was one of the survivors of the ill fated
Trenton, which went down in Apia har
bor. He received general mention for
bravery in rescuing shipmates from the
Vandalia, which was also wrecked in
the same gale. He was a native of Ire
land, aged 62, and a member of the
Grand Army of the Republic and the
Regular Army and Navy union. The re
mains were interred in the navy ceme
tery at Mare island under the außpices
of the Army and Navy union.—New
York Sun.
A Parisian Newspaper Novelty.
A farthing newspaper is the latest
novelty in Paris. It is called La Vie,
and is edited by Pol Martinet, an an
archist, who has 6pent no inconsiderable
part of his life in prison for his violent
writings. As a farthing, or, to speak
more precisely, a 2A. centime piece, is un
known to the French currency, the new
venture is faced at the outset by a se
rious practical difficulty, but the pro
jector gets over it iv a rather ingenious
fashion. Tho paper is to be printed in
two different colors, each color being
used on alternate days. Purchasers of a
paper of one color will be charged a
halfpenny, but they will get in exchange
for it on the following day, without
further charge, the paper of the other
color. —Loudon Daily News.
Money In Honey.
Some of the beekeepers in Skagit coun
ty, Wash., will take 100 pounds from
each of quite a number of their colonies
this season. This means $20 per swarm,
gross, which is regarded as better than
100 per cent interest on the investment.
—Tacoma News.
The sting or the tarantula (a Dome de
rived from Taranto, a town in Italy), the
moat venomous of spiders, was popularly
supposed to produce a disease called
"tarantism," which could be cured only
by music or dancing, and the danr>.i
which cured it was called "tarantella,"
You can see the peasants dance the ta
rantella now, but without waiting for
slider bites.-* St. Nicholas.

Fun For Newsboys.
Marshall P. Wilder was the principal
one of the entertainers who combined
to give the newsboys a few hours of fun
at the Newsboys' lodging house. It was
the first of the series of entertainments
arranged for the amusement of the boys
during the winter, and an audience of
250 greeted Mr. Wilder. Never was any
audience more amused at that funny
man's jokes or more appreciative of his
occasional pathoe. In the funniest of
the stories some of the small bodies
shook until they held their sides with
their hands and laughed until many a
tear found its way down a grimy cheek.
No entertainer who comes before these
newsboy audiences need fear that the
point of his, work will be lost.
When the boys' turn came and the
professional gave way to amateur talent,
there wae one newsboy who blacked up
and put on a dresscoat for his 6tump
speech. He was laughed at more than
any of the other amateurs excepting
Billy O'Brien, whose imitation of the
actors he bad seen at the Bowery theater
was a clover enough piece of work to
have been a credit to a professional.
When the pie match came between
two newsboys, there was no hard feeling
because the negro boy won, because it's
already a tradition of pie eating matches
that the colored boy always does win.
So no offense was meant when he was
called Snowball, and a number of hands
assisted him vigorously in wiping the
remains of the contest from his face. It
was an evening when there was only
time for fun, and every one of the 250
boys present knew that and kept it in
view.—New York Sun.
Little Maiden*.
How Bhould little maidens grow
When they're 10 or over?
In the sunshine and the air.
Wholesome, simple, fresh and fair.
As the bonny daisies blow
And the happy clover.
How should little maidens speak
When they're 10 or over?
Aa the birds do, and the bees.
Singing through the flowers and trees.
Till each mortal fain would seek
The merry hearted rover.
How about her eyes and ears
At this stage of growing?
Like the clear, unclouded skies,
Not too angry, not too wise.
So that all she sees and hears
May be worth the knowing.
And the little maiden's*heart?
Ah, for that we're praying
That it strong and pure may grows
God, who loveth children so.
Keep her from all guile apart.
Through life's mazes straying!

An Aristocratic Nose.
"Mame," said little Elsie to her elder
sister, "Flossie Green says I've got a pug
nose. Have I? And what kind of a nose
have you got?"
Mame glanced proudly at her aristo
cratic profile and answered in satisfied
tones:
"Mine is a Grecian, I guess. And I'm
afraid your nose is a pug, Elsie."
And a quarter of an hour later Elsie
was saying cheerfully to one of her sis
ter's callers:
"Mame will come down in a few min
utes. I guess she's greasing her nose.
That's the kind she's got."—New York
