A BULLET BELOW THE HEART W. A. Majors, a Pullman Porter, Mortally Wounded RESULT OF SHOOTING CRAPS A Scene of Bloodshed in the Arcad e Depot Waiting Room After Flooring; Hl3 Antagonist, the Shooter Walks to the Police Station and Surrenders There was considerable excitement in colored circles last evening:, occasioned by 'a shooting scrape between a couple of ne groes in the waiting room of tlie Arcade Depot, at the foot of Fifth strict. W. A. Majors, a Pullman porter, was mortally wounded by E. C. Bryant, a colored ex pressman, and after tiring the shot the latter walked two miles to the police sta tion and surrendered. Wheu Bryant walked oooliy into the station and told Clerk Oridley that he had wounded a negro, but he did not know how badly, tho police officers standing around were not ut all surprised, for the tragedy had been expected all clay. Early in the Dooming Bryant visited the police station and i>" ■ ■ •! for protec tion. He state 1 that We Ines lay evening he had his rabbit's foot with bin an.: was unusually lucky at shooting craps, the favorite game of chain I among darkies. "I didn't get nothing hut a nat ural every time," lie told one oi the pD liceme.i confidentially, "and a* a read ; I skinned Majors out of He took his los-. very much to heart at tirst and tried to get me to give hi in back his money, but 1 wasn't no fool and I hang On to it. At last he became Ugly And said that he would kill me or lie would get his stuff back. Early this morning I was told that I had better look out for Mijors, and as I know he is a dead bard loan, I am afraid of my life and 1 want the police to pro tect me." The idea of providing l!rvun! with a body guard did not suggest its-It to "Judge" Bean, the clerk, but he called up Special Otlicer Mule, who is stationed at the Arcade Depot by the Southern Pacific Company, ami told him that ltryant, who stands witli his express wagon near the depot, was afraid of being murdered by Majors, and lie asked him to prevent bloodshed if he could. Rule replied that he would attend to the case, and he cer tainly did all in his power to prevent trouble, but it had to come, and he was powerless to stop it. The best story of the shooting is given by E. Steinnian, who has a package stor ing office in the depot, and these are the facts as he related them to the police re porter of The Herald last evening shortly after the shooting: "About half past six this evening I was in my office attending to the details of my business when I heard a quarrel in progress, at the other end of the depot on the same side as my place. I opened the door and walked out, and first saw a cou ple of negroes standing in front of the lunch counter. One of them, whom I afterwards learned was Bryant, was per fectly cool and collected, but th* other fellow, Majors, was in a terrible rage, and although Bryant, appeared to expostulate with him, he would not becalmed. Fin ally Bryant said, 'If you do not keepaway you will get yourself into trouble.' Ma jors then rushed at Bryant and got hold of him, but Ed Lowton, who tends bar for Tom Dormody, got hold of'tlio aggressive colored man and led him off, fearing that If they were not pulled apart one of them would be killed. "Officer Rulo came up at this moment and took Majors outside and cautioned him to keep out of the depot and leave Bryant, who was not bothering him, alone. Majors then pulled a $3) bill out of his pocket and offered it to the officer to permit him to return and do up his colored pal. The offer, of cour-e, was re fused. Four different times the trouble hunting fellow returned, and each time I headed him off, and would not allow bin to come in. "Finally Majors slipped in the back door of the depot anil rushed over in the direction of where Bryant was standing, In front of the ticket window. Officer Rulo got hold of the fellow and tried to drag him away. Bryant turned to walk off, when suddenly Majors grabbed a heavy stool and swung it over his head iv an attempt to strike Bryant with it. Rulo succeeded in getting it away from him, and again the officer endeavored by the use of all the strength at his command to lead Majors away from the scene of con flict. Quick as a flash Majors grabbed another chair, and, with Rulo still holding him, rushed at Bryant. The latter, no doubt, thought he had stood enough, and he pulled his pistol and lired. The depot was well filled with passengers, including men, women and children. They scat tered in all directions and Majors fell to the floor, while Bryant, went out the front door, on his way to the station to sur render. Majors was assisted to his feet by sev eral bystanders, and he at once began hunting for Bryant to do him up. When he found he had gone, he walked unat tended to a neighboring drug store and asked that his wound be dressed. He did not wait to be attended though, leaving in a few moments for his room, close by on Ceres avenue. The patrol wagon was telephoned for. and the wounded man wastakedto the Receiving Hospital upon a stretcher. During the tussle with Majors Officer Rulo, who was for many years upon the regular force, and -who is well along in years, strained his left arm and had to repair to the drug store close by to have it attended to. To the Herald reporter he substantiated Bteininan'a narrative and said in addition that, be did all he could to prevent the shooting. "The fact of the matter is," said Rulo, "the darkey was hunting trouble all day and he only got what he wanted and what he de served, t know nothing about what the issue was between Majors and Bryant, but 1 do say that the latter could not help doing what be did.' 1 At the hospital Dr. Bryant made a superficial examination of Majors' wound and said that he could not till how seri ously he was hurt until he probed for the ball. He preferred to wait to do (hat un til the patient recovered, to some extent at least, from the effects of the shock. He said, though, that he would not be sur prised if the wound was fatal. Bryant was locked up and he talked quite freely. He said that he was sorry that the shooting occurred, but that he firmly believed that his life was in danger, and that he fired as a matter of self pro tection. He knew that Majors was a bad man, and he took all the chances he cared to. He was hounded all day by him, and when he shot he thought it was necessary. GROUND TO PIECES BY WHEELS A Tramp Throws Himself Under ■ Moving Train Yesterday morning at 7:30 o'clock an unknown tramp suicided at Wilmington, by throwing himself under a moving train, and his death was instantaneous. The engineer's story is as follows: When a little way from Wilmington two men were seen walking along in the same direction as the train was going, on the track. One of them wore a fez cap and looked like a Turk. The whistle was tooted to notify the men to get off the track. The two men stopped and talked energetically, the Turk making violent gesticulations. The latter got off the track and in a few seconds the deceased diil likewise. One was on one side of the track and the Other opposite him. Just as the engine was within a few feet of the deceased he turned suddenly and dived headlong in front of the loco motive with a horrible cry. When the Turk was Interrogated he was too dumfounded to say much. He said that he had been at the Midwinter Fair and was trying to find something to do in this section of the country. He did not know the deceased, and was only a fellow tramper with him a few short hours. Coroner Campbell was notified, and he went to Wilmington on an early morning train. An inquest was he'd and the jury re turned a verdict in accordance with the facts. PRESIDENT NEWTON TALKS He Tells About Major Barrett's Schemes at Sacramento The (icntlcman Will Not Say Whether the Ex-Superir.tendentof the electric Road Favored or Opposed the Hill The story published in yesterday's Herald concerning the passage of Speaker Lynch's bill, whereby Agricultural Park, in this city,and on the other agricultural association grounds in the state, may re vert to the original stockholders, created considerable of a stir iv sporting und real estate circles. A meeting of the directors of the Sixth District Agricultural Association was belli yesterday, at 107 North Main street, at which J. C. Newton presided. Prior to the meeting the story us published was discussed, but very little was said, for the reason that B, V. Wright and Lewis Thome , secretary of the association, who admitted having bought, up considerab.a stock during tbe last few mouths, pr p suniably in anticipation of the passage of Speaker Lynch's bill were present, and those members of the board who are op posed to their methods preferred not to discuss tlie matter with them at this time. Captain .1. C. Newton, president of the State Association, and who has taken more interest in the prosperity of the grounds in this city than any one else connected with them, was seen after the meeting adjourned, by the Herald man. "1 have rem! the account in today's Herald," said he, "aud the story is sub stantially correct, save in one place, where lam wrongly quoted. This matter is of great Importance to the people of this part of the state, and f tun satisfied in my own mind that jobbery has been re sorted to, and at the proper time the whole matter will be exposed and the gttiltv parties held up for public censure. I "The feasibility of offering Lynch's bill, continued Captain Newton, ''originated with Mr. Wright, I am quite sure, and - when he bought up all the stock from the several stockholders, with whom he was associated, 1 am convinced he knew that the law would be so changed at this ses sion of the Legislature that the park prop erty would revert to the stockholders. The stock so purchased by Wright and Thome cost them about |100 a share, and if the park is today worth £>40,U0n, us is claimed, the £90 shares would be worth nearly f9OOO a share. Had these stock holders who sold known that the Lynch bill "was going to be introduced, they would not have parted with their stock for so low a price." When asked what Captain A. W. Bar rett, the well-known politician had been doing at Sacramento, Captain Newton replied that he could not tell. "All I know," said he, "is that I re ceived a letter from Barrett some time ago to reply by telegraph what 1 thought of Assembly Bill 4411, which had then passed in the Assembly and was on its third reading in the Senate. I at once went to Sacramento, and when I got there I found that Barrett was out of town. The proprietor of the hotel where he was stopping said that Barrett had gone to San Francisco iv the interest of his 'scheme,' the application of which term I thught in itselt a little peculiar. "Did Barrett oppose the bill in the Senate," queried the reporter, "as it is said he did by Mr. Thome?" "I cannot tell about that,' said Captain Newton, "but I do know that he tele graphed to Nick Covarrubias the very night of the occurrence that Governor Budd bad .signed the bill and that it was then a law. Before the newspapers could print the news Nick Covarrubias had the facts and whether by Barrett's in sruct ions or not 1 cannot say, lie at once set about securing some stock. All the stockholders save those, on the inside, were in ignorance of the impending change and hence were not prepared to re tain their stock as they would have done If they had known that in a single day it, had multiplied in value. Whether Covarrubias got hold of any stock or not I can't say, out I know he endeavored to secure some in any event." Mr. Dillon of the 'firm of Dillon <fc Kuealiy, contractors, was surprised yester day when he read of the passage of the Lynch bill, and remembered thai he had sold his stock to his friend Wright. To another stockholder who is exactly in the same boat, he stated yesterday ''that he had been done up." "It. is a strange thing," said C. F. A. Last yesterday to a Herald reporter, "that Wright secured my stock last January and the book shown to The Herald mail dirl not show the entry." 'Is it possible," asked the reporter, "that the transfer of stock recently has not been kept entered for the reason that Secretary Thome expected that his mo tives iv securing shares of stcok would be called in pneatlon later on and that he had the book as a 'bluff,' to show to the reporters?" "I can't say," said Mr. Last, "but if tbe transfer of my shares of stock does not appear upon it it is not straight." Many persons who have recently sold their stock are on the warpath, anil it is hinted that the directors of the State Vs sociation will not let go their hold until they have taken the case to the courts A well-knonw local attorney has already been retained in the matter.

REAL ESTATE AND BUILDING Men Who Sell the Earth and How They Sell It POWER OF PRINTERS' INK Developments in Various Parts of the City and Country Public Improvements a Potent Factor In Raising Property Values—Some Recent Sales. While the current week has witnessed no phenomenal movement in real estate, it will nevertheless go on record as hav ing borne fairly satisfactory results to the men who sell the earth. Activity has principally been confined to city property, although several good sales of country realty are reported. Pasadena and" Pomona are the towns that figure most prominently in the subur ban real estate transfers, San Pedro, Santa Monica, Long Heach and Monrovia also report some sales, while qviite a nice movement seems to have developed at Aztisa. A good many men of wealth and enterprise own property at the latter place, and the little foothill town prom ises to become one of the most prosper ous places in the San Gabriel valley. Property along the new electric line to Pasadena is picking up. Garvanza and Highland Park arc enjoying quite a nice little boom in consequence of the im proved transportation facilities. Pasadena itself is feeling tbe benefit of electric car service for the first time. The old Pair Oaks avenue horse-car line has been electricized and enrs began making reg ular half-hourly trips from Columbia street north, Wednesday morning. The terminus of the line at present is Wash ington Heights, but connection will soon be made with the Mt. Lowe electric road at Altadena. Then when the gap is filled between Qarvansa and South Pasadena, a continuous electric route will be in opera tion between Los Angeles and Rublo Canyon. Property along the electric line, all the way from Lis Angeles to the mountains is already feeling the stimulus consequent Upon improved transportation facilities. Boyle Heights. Another section that is likely at an early date to feel the effect of electric lo comotion is Boylfl Heights and tlie beau tiful stretch of country beyond, as far as Whittier. Ex-Mayor Workman, who has done so much for the upbuilding of the section of the city east of the river, Ifl at work on a scheme by which it is proposed to construct an electric road out Fourth street, by the SistuVs orphan asylum and Hollenbeck Park and thence to the town of Whittier. It ; s understood that the property-holders at Whittier offer a bonus of 150,000 to the company building the road and that the Baker ranch will add ,$:!0,000 to this subscript ion. It is claimed that there is no don hi as to the ultimate construction of this electric line. Another Influen *c that is tending to improve the demand for property on Boyle Heights is the prospect ot the early extension of the sewer system. Work will soon be commenced for sewer ing a large district on Boyle Height.., in cludingjthe principal residence and busi ness section that is not already provided with proper drainage. Property hoi lets on Boyle Heights are also nailing witli delight the Improve* ments begun by H. .1. woollacott on First street, just east of the river. Mr. Woolla cott is here subdividing tho old bastb.ill grounds—nine acres of good level land, lying on either side of First street, be tween the river and Boyle Heights hill. This long stretch of unimproved land has long heen an eyesore to people traveling back an forth between Boyle Heights and the city proper. It has made Boyle Heights appear to be a separate and dis tinct town, instead of part of the City of the Angels. Mr. Woollacott will now till tiie gap by cutting the acreage up into building lots, making street Improve* ments, etc.i and selling the lots at auc tion, thus making it pretty sure that they will be built upon. Along each side of First street, from the bridge to the foot of the hill, there be a stretch of 600 feet of cement sidewalk, which will make Boyle Heights more accessible to pedestrians than at present. With all these improvements in contem plation, it may be confidently expected that Boyle Heights will experience such a boom within the next six months or a year as it has not felt since it lirst came into prominence as a delightful residence quarter. ('. M. Wells, ex-president of the Cham ber of Commerce, is one of the latest ae quisltions to the Boyle Heights colony of prominent citizens. Mr. Wells recently bought the Smith place, at the corner of Mott and Fourth streets, containing live acres, has moved there with his family and is making some substantial improve ments. Real Estate Agents The impression is sometimes created that the real estate business in hos Ange les is very dull because there are so many real estate agents who seem to be doing practically nothing. It is ajj fact, that many agents scarcely manage to eke out a living on the commissions they derive from sales, but if a careful study*is made of the subject it will be seen that these agents lack the means or enterprise to place their business properly before the public. A man cannot bury'himself in a stuffy little office and expect to do aland ottice business simply because he happens to have a great deal of salable property listed on his books. The property he may have for sale may be ever so cheap and desirable for investment, but he can not sell it without doing something to attract customers. He must ad vertise in some form in other to let people know what he has to offer. Tbe most successful men in the real es tate business in Los Angeles today are tho heaviest advertisers. Of course, the man who advertises must have something meritorious to offer. A fake is sometimes successfully advertised, but not always. The men who run fake propositions may succeed for a little while, but they must in the end give way to legitimate trades men. Fortunately very little faking is at tempted in these days in Jx>s Angeles. Real estate values have berome so settled, and buyers are so cautions that it is diffi cult to make a success of anything but a straight business proposition. It does not require an especially astute individual to observe that the biggest : .ac cesses in the real estate trade are scored by the men who get hold of desirable tracts, subdivide, make substantial improve ments and then advertise heavily, Half a dozen or more firms could be mentioned that have achieved splendid successes by this method. It is needless to specify, you all know theni. Notable Successes ' A notable instance of what may be ac complished by judicious use of printers' ink is found in the case of the subdivision and sale ot tbe Briswalter, Central avenue and Adams street tracts. The enterpris ing gentlemen wdio are handling these properties have spent over $!X)00 in adver tising them and, perhaps, as much more in making improvements. The result is that out of IMS lots in the Briswalter tract, which was opened to sale on the loth of January, 1894, seven remain unsold. Of the sixty-two lots in the Central avenue tract, which was put on the market last Monday, ten remain unsold. The first two weeks of this period was rainy weather, so, practically, the tract has been nearly closed out in less than three weeks. About one-half of the 27!» lots in the Adams street tract, which Was opened last June, have been sold. The foregoing sales represent only a part of the business of this firm. They have in the meantime sold a great deal of acreage and miscellaneous city property, and they attribute all their success to ju dicious "advertising and correct business principles. Another instance of notable success, due to the same causes outlined above, is found in the sale of the South Bonnie Brae, the Harper and the Clark & Bryan tracts. A number of others could be enumerated and dilated upon, but space forbids. Where Dirt Moves No section of this city has shown a more rapid develppment in the past six months than the district east of Main and south of Pico. Grider & Dow have built up quite a little city in the Briswal ter and Adams street tracts. The plain along the Maple avenue and Central av enue electric car lines is dotted with new cottages, most of them of a neat and cosy type, interspersed here and there with imposing mansions. John Gray, a wealthy contractor re cently arrived from the East, is erecting a handsome residence, to cost $8500 to $4000, at the corner of Adams street and Paloma avenue. The double-tracking of the Central av enue electric line and the substitution of new double-trucked cars instead of the old rattle-traps so long in use on that line is enhancing the value of property in that direction. A better car service on the Maple avenue line is helping that section. The proposed electricising of the Main and Jefferson street car line will stimulate properly values along those thoroughfares. Clark & Bryson report several sales in their new Flgueroa street tract. It is al together probable that a dozen or more gooil families will be located on this tract ere long. Quite a healthy movement has set in along Vermont avenue in the Southwest. If the proposed boulevard system is car ried out, Vermont avenue will become a popular residence street. Building goes on at a tremendous pace in the South Bonnie Hrae tract and the district between Eleventh and Pico and Union and Alvarado. Several tine resi dences are in course of construction on Alvarado Heights. The Northwest Improvement Associa tion keeps hammering away and is clear ing the decks for an era of great develop ment. In fact scarcely a section of the city can be named that is not showing very decided signs of improvement. Acreage Property The demand for acreage is not so good as might be expected in view of the pros perous season ahead for ranchers and orchardists. There is some inquiry for orange land, but owners of orchards do not desire to sell and the price of raw land in the orange belt is kept up so as discourage would-be investors. Some good sales, however, are reported, n Sunny Slope acreage is going off rapidly in chunks ot live to twenty acres. There is an occasional sale at Gardena, ami that prosperous settlement never looked better, No section of the country shows greater development than the Alamltos bay re gion. The five and ten-acre tracts planted to lemons and other fruits last year pre sent a most beautiful appearance. A great many comfortable homes dot the land scape. The excellent water supply and absence of frost are making Alamitos a great winter vegetable growing district. St* aw berries and guavas are being planted extensively. Some Recent Sales Wood it Church's Pasadena office report the following sales: Ten acres at Altadena, mostly planted to apricots, for !p4.">00.
