DROWNED IN WESTLAKE PARK Body of a Wayward Suicide Recovered DESERTED AND DISOWNED ———— A Pitiful Tale of Love and Despair Told by Her Letters May Emerson Pound by a Fisherman-Mary of Her Recent Lite and the Causes Leading to Her Daath "One mora unfortunate weary of breath Rashly Importunate, gone to tier death." These time-worn Hues are once more Invoked to tell tho story of a'conliding Woman, a man's duplicity and the con sequent result—suicide. From the dark waters of Westlake there was yesterday recovered the body of a handsome wo man who had been driven to her death by the faithlessness of her husband or lover, who had been discarded by her mother and family, whose only refuge seemed to her distracted mind tiie obliv ion of eternal silence, and who accord ingly sought surcease of sorrow be neath the silent waters which have swallowed so many secrets In the past and will undoubtedly do so In the fu ture. Yesterday afternoon Frank Yon Kol kau was fishing for carp on the western bank of the lake, about luO feet south erly from the rustic bridge which spans an arm of the pond near the middle of the farther shore of Westlake, He bad cast his line several times out Into the water, and the hooks finally became en tangled in something from wh|;h lie was unable to dislodge them. Continu ous puiilng on the line moved the hid den object on the bottom, and Yon Kol kau pulled away until he suddenly brought a portion of a woman's dross to the surface of the water. When he real ized what he had hooked ho called for help, which quickly came, and at 12:45 the body was recovered from the water and laid upon the bank. A telephone mesage was sent to po- MRS. MAY BfIBRSON, THB SUICIDE From photo by rreislar lice headquarters and the coroner noti fied of the ghastly Unci. The body was that of a female about ;s years old, me dium height, brown hair and well-de veloped form. It was dresed in a black and white striped Bhlrt waist and dart! skirt, stockings and Bhoes. From tin appearance it had been in Hie water sev eral days, as the face was blackened and discolored and the llesli of the hands shriveled and water-soaked. On one ol the lingers was an Imitation diamond ring, but In the pockets nothins i o. cio.se tier identity or the reason for tin deed. The corpse was conveyed to the undertaking rooms of Kregelo & Bresee, where it was quickly identified. .She was a Mrs. May Emerson, by occupation a waitress, and who has lately resided at i' 29 West First street, but who was for merly connected with the Baltimore hotel cafe, situated on Seventh .street near Olive. Headers of The Herald w ill remember that some six or seven weeks ago there was published an account of a party deserting his wife and leaving his cred itors in the lurch, who had been con ducting tho cafe in connection with the hotel at that place. The man's name v as not given out of respect to the wishes of the deserted woman, who pleaded that she did not wish her parents to know ot her disgrace. That man was Fred Em erson and the woman the sent.- whose body now lies on a slab at the morgue, and whose last dying statement breathe only love for the scoundrel who had wrecked her existence. Erflerson and his wife, when the Baltimore hotel w as completed, leased the privileges of the dining room from Mrs. Snodgiass, the proprietress, and for a short time con ducted the place apparently success fully. Then one day Emerson was miss ing, and at the time ugly reports were circulated that he hail gone with another waitress who had been employed by him. He sent through the mail two letters, one to his wife and one to Mrs. Snod grass, stating that he felt unable to face his creditors and had left, never to re turn. At the hotel It was denied that he had left in company with the waitress, as she had been there after Emerson's de parture and secured some clothing which she left behind when she quit several days before he disappeared. However, he was gone and the deserted girl ac cepted a position with the new manager of the cafe and continued in that capa city until the place shut down altogether, Then she took a room at TJ.~> South Hill street and resided there for several weeks. One of .May's especial friends was a Miss Lizzie Chute, who rooms at No. 229 West First street, and is em ployed as a waitress In a neighboring restaurant. To her May had confided In her trouble and received an invitation to come and room with her. Miss Chute saw that Mrs. Emerson was dejected and despondent and thought that her companionship would tend to cheer her up. Accordingly, on last Thursday May moved her trunk to Miss Chute's room, No. 26, and the girls remained together until Mrs. Emerson disappeared. Last Saturday nißht. the girls were in the room In company with two gentlemen callers, one named Alex Zeckendorf, who frequently came to see Mrs. Emer son. Miss Chute and her escort went to the theater at about » oclock, leaving May and Zeckendorf in the room. As she went out Miss Chute called to May to cheer up, and asked Zeckendorf to re main and endeavor to arouse her friend from her despondent mood. This it seems was not done, as shortly after she dismissed Zeckendorf and when alone (made her final prepai ations for death. On that day .May had rei eived a letter from her mother in San Francisco, which seemed to greatly dishearten her, Miss Chute was made acquainted with a part of the contents, which informed the recipient that she was cast off as a daughter and would not be received at her home. This action wus taken, it is believed, on account of the mother's as certaining or believing that her daugh ter was never really married to Emer son although passing as his wife. When Zeckendorf had gone May wrote three notes, one to a Mr. Fowler, one addressed to her husband and one to Lizzie. The note to Mr. Fowler was left lying on the bureau. Miss Chute's epistle May placed in her own trunk and locked it, while the third, to her hus t LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING-, MAY 13, 1SB«. oana, sne iook witn ner. At aoout ?>:-" Mrs. Emerson called at the Royal bak ery restaurant on Spring: street and asked for Albert Fink, a waiter em | ployed there. To him she delivered the I note addressed to Fred Emerson, and bade Fink find him as soon as possible and deliver her message. This he prom ised to do. He knew Emerson well, as the latter upon returning- to town after his sudden departure had been employed at the Royal as a waiter. Then Mrs. Emerson walked down the street with Fink as far as Third and Hroadway, where they parted. She was dressed rather unusually for her, ami Fink remarked that her costume was hardly what she had been accustomed to, receiving the reply that It did not matter. She then bade him good bye, saying she was going to the Hotel Lillie and boarded a Westlake car at'about 8:43. Her handkerchief was waved in farewell, and she remarked that he would never see her again. He thought little of the remark, however, as she had on several occasions seemed down hearted, and went away. He was the last person, so far as known, to speak to the dead woman. She evidently went straight to Westlake and threw herself Into the water. It Is known that be fore she boarded the car she had in her possession her mother's letter, for It was shown to Fink, but what she did with it is not known, as no trace of a message of any kind was found upon the body. Miss Chute returned from the theater and found her companion missing. On the bureau was the note to Fowler, but nothing was thought of it and it lay there. All day Sunday passed and by evening Miss Chute had become thor oughly alarmed. Mr. Zeckendorf called and to him her fears were explained, resulting In their deciding to open Fow ler's note and see what was the matter. This was done, and although the con tents were of an ordinary nature, mere ly asking Fowler'a pardon tor speaking harshly to him at one time and saying good-bye forever, they were enough to cause alarm. A thorough search of the room was made to ascertain If any other message had been left, and it was finally decided to break open May's trunk and see what it contained, hoping that it would reveal something to throw light on her disappearance. This was done at about 8:30 Sunday night, and on opening tho lid the first thing that greeted their pyes was an envelope lying upon the top tray and addressed to Lizzie, her friend. The finding of this confirmed their worst suspicions and the letter was opened and read by Zeckendorf, Miss Chute feeling unable to the task after perusing the Hrst few sheets. The envelope was addressed "Miss Lizzie Chute, room 25. No. 229 West First street." and contained the follow ing message: Dear Lizzie: I leave all my things to you except my breastpin, which please send to my little sister after you hear from them, if you do not keep it your self. And my picture send to Mrs. New man, 231 Clipper street, San Francisco, and my sister. Miss Bertha Flagg, 1619 rjkvlsadero street. San Francisco. Dear Lizzie, what is life without the one you love; with all his faults I love him still. I was good, true and kind, what more was I to do? But as all know I loved him. Perhaps he will think of it when I am gone. I w Ish him all the luck and happiness there is in this world, which is very little. Now. Lizzie, forgive me, as you know I am so unhappy. I will say good-bye to all of my kind friends, and when you see Fred tell him that he won my heart and then broke it. I have no hopes of anything better in this world, so I will say good-bye darl ing. Please excuse all as you must know how I feel. I am your unhappy MAY. P. S.—You can let the world know 1 died for him, On the reverse of the last page were scrawled the following lines: "Pleas, , tear up sill my letters that are in my i trunk. The nickels are for you and Arthur." Within the envelope were two 5-cent pieces, all the poor girl had left in the world aft.-r reserving a nickel for [ the payment of her street car fare to Westlake to end her misery. Miss Chute I and Zeckendorf immediately reported | the matter at the police station, and detectives were detailed on the case. The letter was left in their hands and Monday was snent in a frvtitio«« search for the missing girl. Yesterday Detective Steele and Mr. Fowler were out at Westlake, and had but Just returned from there when word was received of the finding of the body. Fowler was on hand at the morgue and instantly identified the body and told the sad story. The note which was ad dressed to him is In his possession, while that to Miss Chute was turned over to the coroner to be used at the inquest to day. Fink was seen at the restaurant and the letter which he had to be turned over to Emerson was obtained from him. He said he had been unable to see the lat ter, as he wtts supposed to have left for San Francisco Monday night Emerson has been very friendly with Miss Mag gie Love.who rooms at 53.1% South Spring street, and who is referred to in the fol lowlng letter as the one who separated May from her pseudo husband. She is also the waitress who was suspected of having eloped with Emerson at the time of the Baltimore cafe affair. It is said that Mrs. Emerson discovered that there was something more than friendship be tween them and accused Fred of infidel ity. Her whole letter'breathes a touch ing spirit of charity and darkly hints at Incidents In Emerson's career that are as yet unknown to any save the dead girl and himself. Below Is her mcsjiage In full as given to Fink for delivery to Emerson: LOS ANGELES, Saturday Afternoon. Dear Fred: I wantt d to see you once more before I left, but fate was against me. Now, Fred, when I am gone and you never see me again, think of the good times wo used to have. I will forgive you for everything, but why did you tell my past life to so many? I kept my word and have not even told your right name, but it is all light, it Is over with now. I deserted one that loved me, and now the one I love has deserted me for another, so I think that is punishment enough. Now, Fred, 1 w ill ask you once more not to talk about me. You have, I know, but if you cannot say anything good, don't say anything bad. I loved you and tried to do right; and God knows I was true to you. What more was I to do. We were all right until you took that cafe; what a sad mistake It was. Say, Fred, in your, own heart I know you do not love that girl, hut you did love me once; I know it. I hope, Fred, you will never cause another to feel as 1 have felt. Just ask Lizzie if I love you. Fred, life seems a burden to me, nowl can not care for anyone. What is life without love? Now T will say good-bye for the last time. May your life be happy when I am out of sight; be good and you will never regret it. 1 wish you good luck. From your unhappy MAY. I. S.—This was on your first and on my last. The postscript refers to a little Im print of a blue forget-me-not which w as evidently cut from the corner of a sheet of letter paper, probably the first missive May received from her quondam lover and pinned at the bottom of the poor girl's note. Her last thoughts in life were of the man who had won her love and then deserted her. Inquiry at 633% South Spring street developed the fact that Marguerite Love loomed there in No.;;(,, but she was not to be seen, fin the door was pinned a rard on which was written: "I will re turn in ten minutes." and to which the letter "M" was signed. Ten, twenty minutes went by and she had not re turned, and the search was given up. The whole case is one of the saddest that has yet occurred in the city, and It is probable that further developments will be forthcoming at the coroner's in quest today. All prions or' wall paper greatly reduced. A. A. Lekstrom, 324 South Spring street. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Rs&! Powde?

The Rev. Webster „f Pasadena and the Rev. Eli Fey. the tivst Unitarian minister of Los Angeles,now of I'asadena.were formally elected co-workers of the convention, fin motion of Mr. Jones.steps were taken to request the participation of the Rev. J. S. Thomson, Dr Hansen wished to go still further and voted that an invitation be extended to all clergymen. Mr. •Tones wondered why all lovers of God and their fellowmen should not be in vited. J. D. Gaylord expressed himself as still not satisfied and the spirit of good fellowship, one of the dogmas of Universalism. ran along the gamut, of ONE humanity until there was not a Chris tian or sinner "on the face of the earth" that was excluded. This action left nothing to be desired and the audience composed Itself to satisfaction and com placence to listen to the two distinguish ed addresses of tho morning on "Tho Church." Rev. Bradley spoke on the first sub division of the subject, Essentials to Membership. In this discourse Issue was taken with the general idea that all who are Inclined be promiscuously ad mitted into church membership. With inclination, those employed In the work shop of the church, should have the same requirements of ability, sagacity and unity that lead to the successful development of any undertaking In business lines. Dr. Conger presented the second sub division. Helps to Members. The church be defined as not only the place to hear sermons on Sunday, but as God's home, where there Is work every day for everybody; where the members are hrothers in one family, the strong; and brave fighting the battles for the poor and weak. Worship, the christening of children and their rearing in the sunny Influence of a religious home, baptism and lastly communion, were exempli fied as the "helps." In the communion of the I.ord"s Snnpcr all could sit down as one family; all troubles, strifes and enmities laid aside, and the stranger and weary traveler Invited to break bread, sharing in the feast of the Spirit, where all dwell together In universal love and the bonds of peace. Thesaora ment of the holy communion followed the address as a natural sequence, and closed the morning session. In the afternoon an interval of a half hour for business was followed by an Interchange of ideas oil the best meth ods of conducting Sunday schools. ,T. P. Chamberlain made an interesting ad dress on The Ideal Scholar, and the Rev. David Heap on The Ideal Teacher. In the absence of Mrs. Mary G. Valentine, who was expected to present a pnper on The Ideal Superintendent. L. M. An drews of Santa Paula opened a discus sion on this subject with an impromptu address of marked ability. At the evening session the'attendance, which had been growing throughout the day, reached an audience of a most gratifying size for a denomination which, though of rapidly widening in -11 in nee, has not had time for great strength of members. Rev. A. A. Rice, pastor of the Unlversallst church of Los Angeles, opened the services with an ad dress of welcome, which was responded to by the president. Dr. Conger. The Rev. C. A. Garst of Riverside preached the convention sermon. It be ing an excellent presentation of the theme, Sorrowing Yet Rejoicing, based on Second Corinthians. vl;10. As the Joy of deliverance follows the sorrow of sin, according to the words of Paul, so the conflict In the affiliation of truth and love, faith and reason, justice and mercy, the seen a"d the unseen. Is swept away, said the speaker. Interpreting life from the side of divine love. Infinite wisdom and limitless benevolence, we rise to a comprehension of the unity of divinities. In every day life where there Is apparent antagonism the earnest soul seeks and obtains the solution which otherwise challenges intelligence and defies faith. The musical features of the evening were a solo by Mrs. Todd, anthems by the congregation and seeral fine selec tions by James G. Clarke.
