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-
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
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
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
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
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

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

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
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
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.

j Much of the tedlousnesa Inevitable
j during the business formalities of con
ventions generally was overcome yes
terday by a cheerful air of good fellow
ship that was ushered in during an early
period of tiie proceedings, and was con
tinued throughout the day. 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
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
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
