THE SUICIDE AT WESTLAKE
A Young and Good-Looking
Woman Tired oi Life
MINNIE JUDY THE NAME
A flirt, So Par as Known, of Excellent
Character
Nothing Known ol ths Causes That Impelled
*" Iter ea to Sslf-Destructlon-A Troubled
mod Seeks Troubled Waters
The body of a woman, apparently about
25 years of age, prepossessing in appear
•nee, well dressed, and showing evidences
of refinement, was found floating in the
water at Westlake park yesterday morning
by a passer-by. At about 7:30 oclock,
while on bis way to his work dawn town,
Fred Franks saw, in pissing along the
Beventh-Btreet side of tha park, a woman's
hat floating on the water and near by on a
bench a cape. He immediately ma le an
investigation, and on a closer approach no
ticed what appeared to be a dress on ths
surface of the lake. Beneath tho ripples
could be discerned the form of a woman
resting face downward in about five feet of
water. He immediately went for help and
the lifeless body was drawn ashore.
It was evident that death had ensued but
a few hours previously, as the body was
but slightly affected by its immersion. The
body was that of a young woman of the
blonde type, somewhat above medium
height, and weighing in the neighborhood
of 125 pounds. The hair was of a sandy
color and the eyes blue. In life she had
apparently been a comely woman of mid
dle station. When found tlie corpse was
fully dressed with the exception of bat and
shoes, and was lying in shallow water some
fifty yards to tlie west of the new boat
house and band stand at the foot of the
steep bank which at that place descends
to the lake from the sidewalk on Seventh
street.
Officer Mercer soon arrived and the au
thorities were notified and the body re
moved from the gaze of the curious throng
which had by this time gathered to tlie tin
dertaking rooms of Orr & Hines on Bro id
way near Seventh street. Here the drip
ping garments were removed and an at
tempt was made to establish the identity of
the mysterious suicide, for such it proved
to be.
In the pocket of the dress was a purse
which contained but a few cents in change
and a pawn ticket issued on February 'JO
by "Uncle" Morris, a Main street pawn
broker, for $5 on a ladies' cold watch.
This bore the name of Nellie Emerson and
118 South Main street as an address. Both
name and number were found to be ficti
tious, although Morris remembered the
woman who hnd pawned the timepiece on
the date named. Numbers of people,
hearing that a body had been discovered in
the lake, called at tiie morgue, but it was
not until late in the afternoon that a posi
tive identification was made. At 3 oclock
W. Davis, son of the proprietress of Hie
Menlo hotel on South Main street, saw the
body and at once pronounced it that of
Minnie Judy, who had been employed by
hie mother as a domestic at the hotel for
the past two years.
Some ten days ago she had left hor em
ployment and since then tiiey had heard
nothing of her until finding the body on a
slab in the morgue. Davis stated that the
girl had always conducted herself in a be
coming manner while at the Menlo and he
could ascribe no cause for tlie commission
of the deed. Later in 'he afternoon W. H.
H. Reavis, who runs a lodging house at No.
113 East Third street, came to the under
taking parlors and identified the body as
that of a young woman who had a week
ago last Sunday rented a room of his wife.
She was seen but little while in the house,
not seeming to care to associate with the
other lodgers. Nearly all day Wednesday
bad been spent in her room and when she
left is not known.
She was in the habit of caring for her
own apartment, and the bed yesterday
morning was neatly made and showed no
evidences of occupancy during tiie night.
In the room weie several articles of femi
nine wearing apparel and some letters
which had evidently been written to hor by
a brother. No word or note was left to tell
tbe tale of her distress that led to the
dreadful deed, and the only explanation
that can so far be given is a love affair of
some description. Mr. Reavis states that
on last Sunday night she had a gentleman
caller who, on leaving, was heard to say to
her: "Now, be sure and be there, and
don't disappoint me." Prom this it is in
ferred that an appointment of soma kind
was made, but whether kept or not is not
known. She had appeared to be short of
money and had paid only a portion of the
pent of her room for tiie week.
The poor girl mu3t have been
In great distress and anguish to
go out into the pelting rain and walk all
the way to the lake, there to make deliber
ate preparations for death, and calmly
throw herseif into the water.
Conductors ou the electric cars do not
remember of carry ing any passenger an
swering her description, but one states that
his car waa stopped at a late hour by a
woman, who answers description of de
ceased, who asked tlie distance to the
park. He offered her a ride on the car,
but she turned away and disappeared in
tiie darkness.
Coroner Campbell took charge of all the
dead girl's effects and will hold an inquest
this morning at the undertaking rooms.
Miss Judy gave her name at tlie Third
street house as Nellie Emerson, tlie same
as on the pawn ticket. She came originally
from Portland, Ore., where, it is under
stood, her parents reside. For some time
past she has been keeping company with a
man who is said to be a fireman on the
railroad, although it has been impossible
as yet to ascertain bis name. When dis
covered he may be able to throw some
light on the mystery now surrounding the
tragic suicide.
The brother of the dead woman is John
Judy, who lives on Auacortes street, Wash
ington, Oregon. A sister-in-law, Mrs.
Orma Judy, also resides in Niagara, Oro
county, that state. Telegrams have been
sent notifying them of the suicide, and ask
ing what disposal shall be made of the re
mains.
LOS ANGELES W. C. T. U.
Holds Its Fourth Annual Meeting-Election
of Officer.,
Instead of the regular Wednesday after
noon lecture in the First Baptist church
yesterday, the Los Angeles Woman's
Christian Temperance Union held its
fourth annual business meeting, with the
president, Mrs. Lucy T. Blanchard, as
chairman.
The annual reports of the secretary, cor
responding secretary and treasurer were
read showing a very gratifying progress in
tbe organization during the past year.
Mra. Tallerday, as superintendent of the
Flower mission, also presentated a report
of the distribution of bouquets during the
year in numerous worthy cause*. A hint
waa given to the society that this was the
proper season for planting flower seeds,
and that sweet peas and other easily cul
tivated blossoms would make most accept
able donations to the Flower mission.
Mrs. Lucy T. Blanchard followed with
the president's report, in which she slated
that the past twelvemonth had marked the
most prosperous year of the union's exist
ence; that tho membership during that
period had more than doubled itself aud
that ite treasury had met all demands, leav
ing a small amount to its credit with wnicii
to begin tha now year. The work bearing

on the Los Angeles Loyal Temperance Le
gion, the Juvenile and Ransome Home, was
also included in the report, with the com
ment that these causes receive greater at
tention in tiie future. It was also sug
gested that scientific temperance instruc
tion be included, as well as an introduction
of parlor meetings for the purpose of awak
ening greater interest in tbe temperance
cause.
Mrs. Elmira T. Stephens, superintendent
of parliamentary usage, made a few pleas
ait remarks, congratulating the society
upon its adaptability for parliamentary
regimen and on its improvement in busi
ness discipline.
The election of officers for the ensuing
year was as follows: President, Mrs. Lucy
T. Blanchard; corresponding secretary,
Mrs. Florence A. Sopp; recording secre
tary, Mrs. Florence M. Chambers: treas
urer, Mrs. Orace C. Wallace; superintend
ent of flower mission, Mrs. Tallerday;
superintendent of literature, Mrs. Lawton;
director of parliamentary usage, Mrs.
Elmira T. Stephens. Mrs. Blanchard, the
founder of tho Los Angeles L. T. L. and its
head for the last thirteen yearn, was un
animously re-elected president, merely as
a matter of form.
Following the successful precedent of
last year, similar programs of weekly lec
tures on practical topics have been ar
ranged for the coming months. Next
Wednesday Mrs. H. W. Duncansou will
repeat a lecture given recently beforo the
Friday Morning club on Tho Public House
keeping in Chicago.
THE DUNBOYNE ANCHORED
With Half Her Cargo Discharged She
Rode tbe Gal:
The English Consul Will Investigate Charges
of dross Brutality by tbe Mate
to a Sick Seaman
The Dunboyne, fears of whose safety
have been rife in the last forty-eight hours,
is now safely anchored about fifteen fath
oms f.om tbe end of the partially wrecked
wharf at Port Los Angeles. The Dunboyne
deeply laden with cement and salt made
a quick passage from London, hor actual
timo being somewhat short of 120 days.
She had discharged about one-half of her
cargo when the storm came up and the
rickety wharf was wobbling so seriously
that she put to sea. She has sustained no
damage of a serious nature. Ono of her
crew, Hans Johansen, an able seaman,
shipped on her a few days prior to her de
parture from the Thames. Two weeks
later lie was seized with a severe attack of
inflammatory rheumatism and was unfit
for duty. His shipmates, who speak well
of him, nursed him, turn about, and as soon
as lie was able to stand hia watch Johansen
turned out. But the mate charged him in
nautical vernacular with "soldiering," and,
it is said, kicked and beat him shame
fully. Mr. Johansen has his well stocked
sea chest aboard the "Dunboyne" and
though $17 are due him, he was penniless
when found by The Herald reporter. The
English consul will see to his case and
that justice is done him at a hearing to
morrow.
A DAYLIGHT ROBBERY
People Being "Held Up" Daily by Fake Doc
tors—Why Can't This Shameful
Prsctlce Be Abolished
Every day complaints are registered by
persons who have been robbed by the so
called "specialists" of this city. Glowing
announcements are daily put in the papers
by a class of medical "bums," who claim
everything but honest treatment and ex
perience. These "persons" or specialists,
as they call themselves, claim to cure
everything from a case of swelled head to
dyeing whiskers by a foreign method only
known to them.
Dr. Shores was interviewed last evening
in relation to the outcome of these fellows.
Dr. Shores said: It is like last year; the
town was filled with fakirs, but they soon
left to locate in pastures green. But when
thoy are here they all try to imitate our
style of advertising, thinking the public
will fall into their trap. Why, they have
even hired my ex-employes and made
propositions to Dr. Fretwell, with our medi
cal company; but it was all in vain, as
our men are all honest and will not accept
of any dishonest systems.
Then, again, those fellows have a lot of
"pluggers" out, both men and women,
which is a cause for a revocation of their
license. They put many pictures in the
papers of which the directory fails to re
produce in name.
Why do you give ten days' free treat
ment. Dr. Shores, the reporter asked.
Because, said Dr. Shores, I don't feel
like allowing tbe sick people to be imposed
upon, and for that reason I will give ten
days' treatment and medicines free to all
who apply before March Bth.
Well, doctor, you are certainly doing a
good work.
Yes, for today I have treated 125 patients,
and all have expressed themselves in the
same way.
You can tell your readers, said Br. Shores,
that all treatment and medicines will be
free this week. I extend a cordial invita
tion to all, no matter what trouble they
may have, to come this week and I will
give them ten days' medicines and treat
ment free of charge. The public are the
judges as to the success of anything.
Will you continue your free treatment
offer after next week, Dr. Shores?
No; this will be the last week, aa we
could not afford to extend it, and then the
imitators will have a chance to copy our
system. You watch, and you will see their
mad efforts to duplicate our announce
ment.
With this parting remark Dr. Shores
was called to attend his patients, about
thirty men, then awaking his presence.
It is safe to say that hundreds are thank
ful to Dr. Shores for his genuine offer of
ten days' treatment and medicines free to
al! who apply before Sunday, March 8 th.

THE OLD SPANISH RECORDS
No Way as Yet Provided to
Have Tbem Translated
A VERY IMPORTANT MATTER
The Boerd of Fire Commissioners in
Session
Several New Rules Are Adopted-Walter S
noore Say 3 That lie Is Out of Politics
snd Is for Quay for President
City Attorney Dunn some two months
ago suggested in a written communication
addressed to the council, that the city pro
vido for the translation of the old Spanish
municipal archives into English. Tho
matter was referred to the finance commit-
tee, where it has ever since been lying
asleep. When Charles McFarland was
city attorney, lie tried hard to have the
translations made, but he never suc
ceeded. There are seven volumes of these
archives and one of records, dating back so
far as 1850. One and one-half years ago,
ex-Mayor Stephen C. Foster offered to do
tho work for a lump sum of $500,
but his tender was never accepted, since
which time In individual instances these
records have had to be, for ollleial pur
poses, translated, at a cost of over $200,
which translations have proven of no per
manent value. Tiie information in these
records will be very much needed by the
ciiy throughout the whole of the coming
important negotiations and litigation with
the Los Angeles City Water company.
A.ME.NDINU FIRE RULES
Chief Walter S. Moore presented to the
board of fire commissioners yesterday set-
eral proposed new departmental rules.

or 40 inches at a weight of 180 pounds;
intervening sizes in proportion.
"Previous dismissal from any depart
ment of the Los Angeles city government,
or from any lire department, shall be
cause for rejection.
"In addition to the above qualifications,
applicants must hereafter tie shown to
possess such practical fitness and intel
lectual and physical capacity as the board
of fire commissioners and chief engineer
shall consider requisite."
The above was adopted. ,
The chief reported that he had investi
gated the interests involved, and had been
informed that the East Los Angeles en
gine house was located too far from mains
and wires to be at the present time lighted
by either gas or electricity.
Chemical engine house No. 5 will be
lighted by May the Ist, the latter being,
with the exception named, the only house
in the department not at present provided
| for in this particular.

The petition of Newell Bros, to be per
mitted to excavate for an oil tank for the
Bullard building on the site of the old
courthouse on Spring street was referred
to the chief for investigation.
It the chief's written company reports
for February, the members of the board
noticed several unexplained absences of
callmen. Moore was instructed to investi
gate this matter and make a written re
port to the commission.
The board instructed the chief to provide
chemical engine No. 5 with ladders.
The commissioners decided to examine
the newly made repairs to the iTaza engine
house preparatory to accepting the same
on behalf of the city. The chief was in
structed to inquire and report why the or
dinances pertaining to lire escapes and
stand pipes is not complied with,
being ordered to interview individ
ual owners of buildings in the
matter and report their intentions. He
was also instructed to interview the land
lord of the premises on which the Third
street engine house is located, to learn
whether there is any danger of engine No.
8 and its crew being suddenly turned
adrift, without house or home.
The chief reported the following acci
dents during February: On tbe 13th in
stant, while responding to box 84 at C :50
p. m., Chemical company No. 5 ran into
tlie iron manhole at Maple avenue and
Twenty-second street, damaging the

MOORE WAS MISSING
Walter S. Moore, chief of the fire depart
ment, was not a guest nt the Young Men's
Republican league banquet held last even
ing. He wants it understood that ho and

statesman of his parly now living.
SOME money is owing
