NO. 172 TRYING TO ROB A HOUSE Persistent Attempts to Commit Burglary at Highland Park A DOQ DOES NOBLE DUTY Four Times Have Men Come, but Been Scared Away Several Weeks Ago a Man Oof Into the House but Was Surprised—fir. Kearse Has Shot Several Times Lately About the moat persistent attempt to burglarize a house reported in a long time has occurred at Highland Park dur ing the last month or so. No less than four trials have been made to effect an entrance and time , away valuables, but each ono has failed ol consummation. Thia object of tbo attention of the rob bers is the residence of Mr. Wm. I. Kearse, or what is more generally known os the Hatch place. The last visitation of the marauders was on Friday night and on Wednesday before tne same par ties, presumably, were also around the grounds. On both occasions they were scented by the watch dog which aroused Mr. Kearse by barking and the proprietor lired at the men, but did not succeed in hitintg them. Some weeks ago two men tried to get into the bouse after dark but on one occasion they were prevented by tbe dog and on the other wero frightened away after getting inside. The house is very isolated, standing on a nigh piomontory about a quarter of a mile from the Santa Fe and Tasadena electric car tracks and fully three hun dred yards from the nearest neighbor. The approach is abrupt, that to the front boing by a flight of steep stairs, while along the sides and coming to the rear is ,a winding road. High stops also lead to the front porca on which sleeps the watch dog every night. Some weeks ago Captain Morris, the father-in-law of Mr. Keaise, was aroused about 11 oclock at night by hearing foot steps in tbedltlingroom underneath him land he called Mr. Kcarse's attention to it. Tho latter armed himself and went down to investigate. From tne room and lending into tbe pantry is a swinging door and about eight feet further on is still another door connecting with the kitchen. On the other sde of the parti tion are two more doors that communi cate with the dining room, thus making a complete circlo of doors. Mr.Kearse walked as noiselessly as possi ble but the burglar evidently hi ard bim coming and started to escape through the pantry. Mr. Kearse followed him up closely and heard each of tne four doors close in turn and also perceived the man escape through the window. The fellow had evidently come to size up matters and get the lay of the lane or <>le» h * could not have known of tbe four doors and made his escape as he did. About two nights later Mr. Kearse was awakened hy loud harking of tbedog.and goiitg to the window of the front room which overlooks the front yard saw a man standing on tho fourth step in the grasp oi the dot, wnicb held him fsst by the left arm. The fellow had apparently gone up on thu porch and tried to get In y too parlor window where the dog had surprised and driven himdow.i the stairs. Mr. Kearse at first thought it possible tnat the man was a friend wno had come to see bun about something important, nnusaid: "What is wanted?" To this the fellow gave no reply, but continued to retreat down the steps, the dog all the time holding bis arm. The animal is a large St. Bernard, and merely wanted to detain tho man until told to let loose or bite. Mrs. Kearse had come to the window, too, and sbe called to her husband to get his gun and shoot toe fellow. He caught tbe weapon and by the time he had re tuned to the window tho burglar had gotten on the lower ilight of steps, but was unable to shake the dog from off his arm. Mr. Kearse started to take aim, but his wife relented and begged him not to shoot. He then called the dog to let bo of the man, and as soon as the latter found himself looso he turned and bolted down the hill about seventy yards distant tr. where cart and horse and another man stood waiting. "Are you all right, Jim?" asked this fellow, who held the reins. "Yes; but drive like h—," replied the latter as he jumped into the cart. The other lost no time in obeying ami lashed the horse into a run and sped down the hill. They drove to tho avenue anil took the direction hack to this city. Nothing more was heard irom the rob bers until last Wednesday night, when they asain made their appearance on the grounds of Mr. Kearse. The dog heard them and at once aroused the household with his barks. Mr. Kearse sprang to tbe window and saw a couple of shadows running along the brow of the hall and took several shots at tbem, but evidently did not hit cither. Last Friday night about llorl2 o'clock the fellows came arourid once more and once more did the dog see them and arouse his master. Mr. Kearse saw the outlines of two men running and tried to pink them with his shotgun, but as he had no opportunity to aim tbey got away. These repeated attempts to get into the house show that tne robbers are profes sionals and seem to think that thero is a large quantity of valuable property iv the house, and propose to make every at tempt and risk almost anything to secure entrance. \ Just what further attempt to rob the house will be made cannot be stated, but at nil events Mr. Kearse is prepared to give the marauders a decidedly warm re ception, and the next time they cume there may be ono less to drive back to town. So far as has been reported no otber houses in that locality have beeu ap proached, the operations being confined to tha large vvlnlo house on the hill.

WAS A COMMON-LAW WIFE And Wished to View Her Hus band's Body HE WAS A LOVING CONSORT And Also a Drunkard and a Mor- phine Fiend An Unfriendly Sister-ln-Law Charges That the Common-Law Wile Is Attempt* Ing to Qet the Property Associated Prcs3 Special Wire NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—A young wo man calling borslf Mrs. Jane Baugb, with Inwyers and a policeman, called this afternoon at 14 West Thirty-seventh street, where the body of Baugh, who died Thursday, was lying and demanded admittance. Tbey were met by John Harkins, tbo unole of tbo dead man, and to him Lawyer (Jhadscy suid: "This younu woman is my client and the wife of George Baugb, whose body is lying inside, and we demand on her behalf that she be admitted and allowed to view tbe remains of her husband." This was a surprise, because Mr. Baugh was not supposed to bave been married. 'If you come up the steps and attempt to effect an entrance," replied Mr. Harkins, "1 will throw you oat. We don't know who you are and don't want to." The young woman said: "Ob, let mo take a look at my poor, dead husband." Then she went into hysterics and was carriod away. One of the lawyers gave tho following statement: This young woman is the wife of the dead man and we are prepared to prove it. It is true that sbe is only the conimoii-law wife, hut in this [state it is equally as binding as if tho ceremony was performed by a clergyman. Our cli ent met the young man about a year ago ami he subsequently introduced her as his wife to many reputable people whose affidavits to that effect wo have. Last Thursday young Baugh, who was a heavy drinker and addicted to the use of mor phine, was removed in an ambulance to Roosevelt hospital, where he died two hours after his arrival and his body was removed by order of his sister, Mary Baugh, to tne residence of his uncle, al though bis wife vigorously protested against it. On Friday Deputy Coroner Lonlin performed an autopsy on th" body, whicn showed that Laugh died if opium poisoning, and tha coroner, al though ft is not. genorally known,ordered our client placed under police snrveil" lance on the claim of his sister that this young woman had poisoned her hus band." Mrs. Baugh, as she calls herself, said tbat on Friday evening the sister of the dead man had called at her flat and bad violently aassnultcd her and knocked her down and threatened to shoot her if sbe attempted to como to the funeral or view the remains of ncr brother. On Saturday her attorneys obtained a temporary in'juncton, restraining the sis ter from disposing of tho remains. Judge McAdam of tbe superior court, sinned the order and made it returnable Mon day. It was served on Miss Baugh Sat urday night nnd at the IS a c time sho wan also served with papors in a civil action brought by the alleged widow against the sister of the deceased, to re cover $10,000 damages for tho detention of the body and for assault. The relatives of Bsucb will re sist the injunction. They claim that the woman who calls herself his common law wife is attempting to get his prop erty.

NO IRISH BULL THIS TIME The Bull Fight at Agricultural Park Yesterday CAPTAIN TARIN'S CLOSE CALL He Was Tossed Into the Air Twice, but Got Away Several Narrow Escapes at the Toreador Ex hibition Yesterday Afternoon —A Green Hand (Jets Rolled About About 80(1 people traveled out to Agri cultural park yesterday afternoon,attract ed by the fame of the bull fighters that were to give an exhibition of their skill to those attending. And they saw some sport that, allowing for the lameness that was necessarily part of the show, was quite enough to keep the audience guessing about the chances that each man was taking. Tho sport did not comrasnoe till near ly 3 o'clock and the people grew a trill c impatient. Bnt the fun began direotly tbe lirst animal was let loose. He kept tbe toreadors busy dodging his vicious rushes, uad the man iv red was on the run all the lime. Finally the bull got tired and the vaqueros came in and drove him out. The second bull proved to be rather a tamo one, and the bullfight ers lost no time in requesting his imme diate departure. But the third was good ennui h to make up for all thereat put to gether. Ho came in with a rush and a bound and kept everybody on tho run, all tho time tbat he was with tbem. Captain Turin was in the center of the ring, and tbe bull made a quick charge at bim. He avoided the first with great dexterity, but the animal turned short and caught bim In the back, rolling him in tbe dust. He rolled aside and the bull passed on, causing tbe gentleman to make one of his celebrated sprints to the boundary. There was a man in bluo whose name was Diaz, and the way that he would tanta lize the bull caused that animal to stand still and almost sued tears at his inabil ity to give the man a good poke in Borne portion of his anatomy. A second time he made for tbe captain, for whom he now seemed to havo a special grudge, and again he caught bim at tbe boun dary, tossing bim right up in the air. The crowd held its breath, expecting to see the man caugnt on th« horns os be came down, but instead he caught hold of the rope that ran around the top of tho fence and pulled himself up out of harm's way. By quick work the man in blno got the bull away and the person in red again sprinted for the "bnrladeros," or small fonees behind which it is per missible to hide. In fact, bayond 1111 oc casional wave of his red flag at the bull when he was at the opposite side of the ring, tne man in red did little else but sprint all the time. When the fourth Dull was brought in ana had made thing' pleasant for a little while, a Spaniard who had been sitting on the fence watchinc thu performance, could no longer control himself and he slipped into the ring amid the shout! of the people. He made for tlie hull and tbe bull made for him. Waving his big som brero at tbe animal the 'paiis.no" at tempted to dodge the coming rush, but his foot slipped and the hull rolled him over. The other men got the bull quick ly away ajd the green hand took another try at it. Again the animal s.tw some easy game ahead and he took advantage of it. Witb a Corbett rush the bull took the unhappy Mexican in tbe scat of his trousers and* he hit the ground with force enough to joggle all bis teeth loose. Tnis was enough for him and heyielued to the entreaties of his numerous friends and climbed out of the ring. Then came two vacqueros and they las soed tbe bull, threw biiu and all the bull fighters sat on him, the man in red show ing great valor at this portion of the game. A rope being around his body tho bull urose, but be had a man on him und lie stuck there. The red rags of the toreadors buttered in vain, as the bull was occupied in trying to get rid of tho incubus on his back. But try as be would the wary Mexican held on, and tho bull dashed around in vain. Finally <he animal came close to the boundary and the rider seized the opportunity and the rope at the same time and drew him self up to a place of safety. Again the vacqueros threw the bull for the purpose of taking the rope off bim and then tho clowns entered the ring. They presentsd a most grotesque appearance, for tbey wore meal sacks that were stuffed with excelsior, ana tbey wabbled In tbeir walk tne dignity of Rouen ducks. Wben the bull would charge them tbey wouhi lay peacefully down on the ground and allow him to step all over them. Several times the bull would catch them squarely on some portion of their persons and start them rolling, but nothing of that kind seemed to hurt tbem Finally 1 tbe bull got discouraged and sulked in tbe ourner, utterly refusing to play in I anybody's back yard So the vacqueros came in and drove him into outer dark ness and there was a short lull. At last some of the spectators who had been tired with a desire to emulate the unfortunate Mexican who had beiore ven tured into the ring, entered the enclosure and essayed to wield the red rag before the wild bull. But tbe bull refused to oa wild and adopted the tactics of the man in rca, running away at every possible opportunity. So the people came away apparently quite satisfied at the exhibi tion that tbey had witnessed. LONDON MONEY Increased Demand Only Slightly Pelt and Rates Remain Unchanged LONDON, Sept. 20.— The extra call for money due to the increased demands in the mining markets and the usual quar terly requirements have been only slight ly felt in tbe money market and tbe rates were virtually unchanged. There was some talk, however, of colonial borrow ings, and it is expected that France will shortly ask for a heavy loan to cover tbe tloating debt and the expense of tha Madagascar expedition. The stock mar ket has been occupied witb a heavy set tlement and little fresh business was done. The mining market continues to almost monopolize attention, though tho tune was generally distinctly firm, espe cially for American railioad consols an other high class stocks. English railroads ware well supported. Tbe foreign mar ket was quiet. American railroads were further improved, more confidence being displayed here.

LONDON, Sept. 29.—The Standard says regarding the Chinese situation: The position of the Chinese govern ment is extremely perilous. It has enough on its hands without a quarrel with England. It is too soon to say that the tall of the Manchu dynasty is immi nent, but the news of tho spread of the Manommedan insurrection in tne prov ince of Kan Su is alarming. Tho British demands must be supported by the pres ence of our lleet in tbe Yang-tse Kiang if not by the occupation of Nanking. "We 'doubt if the Manchu dynasty could survive such a shock.

"What we want done," the Times con tinues, "we must insist upon having done, not by futile representations to Peking, but by going to the spot in ques tion and seeing it done ourselves."
