Another Tragedy in the L.

i •
Officers of the Company Declare That
There Was Nothing Wrong
With His Accounts
In a moment of desperation aggravat
ed by the Intense- pains in his head
caused by an abcess at the point of the
jaw, Captain Montifort G. Bolton yester
day morning committed suicide by send
ing a bullet through hl&braln. He lived
just long enough for his best friend to
see him breathe his last gasp.
On Monday afternoon Captain Bolton
left the office of the Los Angeles Electric
company, where he had been employed
as book-keeper, about an hour before his
usual time. W. H. Burns, the secretary
of the same company, noticed that Bol
ton seemed somewhat despondient, but
d eclares he attributed it to his ill-health,
the state of which was generally known
throughout the office. It is, however,
severally claimed that he resigned his
position and also that he had been dis
charged. Presumably, Captain Bolton
then went to his home, corner of Pico
and Telegraph streets, Pico Heights,
where for some years he had been living
with R. H. Chad wick. Recently, how
ever, Mr. Chadwick has been absent in
Europe, and the house was occupied
only by Capt. Bolton and the house
On the morning of his fatal act, Bolton
arose a few minutes before? oclock. He
callec'j the housekeeper and told her not
to prepare breakfast before 9 oclock,
and then gave her a note which he de
sired her to deliver to Thomas Beattie
immediately. The latter's residence is
not over three blocks from Bolton's
house, and the housekeeper hurried over
with it.
Mr. Beattie was watering his lawn
when the servant arrived with the mes-,
sage, a somewhat unusual thing in It
self, but not such as to arouse suspicion
of anything like the true state of af
fairs. But when the contents of then.ote
were read, matters assumed a different
shape. The letter read as follows:
Dear Tom—l cannot stand this racket.
It may be all over by the time you get
this. I am almost crazy. M. G. B.
Even then Mr. Beattie could scarcely
believe that his friend had put an end to
his own existence; but none the less, to
make sure, Beattie hurried over to Bol
ton's house to sice If there was realiy
anything wrong. He entered the house,
pushed open the door of his friend's
room and the ghastly truth was. revealed
to him.
There lay Captain Bolton with a bullet
hole in his head, from which the life
blood was fast flowing. The bedclothes
were literally saturated In blood, which
had soaked through and dripped on the
carpet. The dying man's eyes were
glazing as Beattie rushed" Into the room,
and after a couple of minutes' of faint
breathing Captain Bolton died. In his
right hand was a revolver, a 38 caliber
Smith & Wesison, and two chambers
were empty. The muzzle of the weapon
was stained with the dead man's, blood,
for he had forced the barrel into his eat
before pulling the trigger. Captain Bol
ton was clad only in his nightgown,
trousers and slipperE, and these gar
ments, too, had become saturated with
Mr. Beattie notifledi the coroner, and
Deputy Summerfield soon arrived and
took charge of the remains, having them
removed to the undertaking parlors of
Orr & Hines.
Captain M. G. Bolton had at one time
been a prominent figure in Los Angeles
society, but lately had retired within a
small circle of friends, though he kept up
his athletic interests, to which he was
particularly devoted. The reason for his
act can only be surmised, but coming as
it did at such, a time in the affairs of
the company that had employed him,
it. has given rise to many unpleasant
rumors. Captain Bolton, before dying,
had written and sent a letter to Mr.Cllne.
but the nature of his communication
and whether any admission of guilt had
been made in it could not be ascer
Bolton had been in the employ of the
electric company for more than ten
years as a bookkeeper, having been put
in the position by W. R. Blackman, the
now defaulting cashier of the company.
A Herald reporter saw President Cline
of the gas company and put a point
blank question as to whether fir not
there was anything wrong with Cap
tain Bolton's account. Mr. Cline gave it
as his opinion that there was no shortage
in Captain Bolton's books.
Captain Bolton was born in Ireland,
County Wexford, being at the time of his
death 42 years of age. He served for a
time in the British army, being stationed
several years in India. He held the-rank
of captain- in the Seventieth regiment of
the line, and In India was a member of
Sir Ashley Eaton's staff. He passed all
through the Egyptian war, being pres
ent at the battle of Telelkebir and the
! surrender of Arabi Pasha.
He was an unmarried man, though
some four or five- years ago his engage
ment was announced to a young lady
from the east, who was wintering here.
Her father, however, objected so stren
uously to the match that after awhile
it was broken off, and the girl returned
to her home.
A Herald reporter called on W. R.
Blackman at the county jail yesterday
afternoon to see if he was able to throw
any light upon the death of Captain Bol
ton. Beyond the fact that he knew that
Bolton had suffered with an abcess of
the Jaw, Mr. Blackman could give no
information that would lead to the dis
covery of the motive for the dead man's
act. The books kept by Captain Bolton
are now being experted, and the result
will be made public in a day or two.
An inquest held yesterday at 1
o'clock at Orr & Hlnes' undertaking
parlors upon the remains of Captain
Bolton. Only two witnesses were exam
ined, Tom Beattie, who testified in ac
cordance with statements already re
cited, and W. H. Burns, secretary and
—From his latest photograph.
treasurer of the Los Angeles Electric-
Lighting company. Mr. Burns swore
that so far as he knew the
accounts of the deceased were
all correct, and that he-had no con
nection with the Blackman defalcation.
After the testimony the Jury rendered
a verdict that the deceased came to his
death from a gunshot wound inflicted
by himself. Coroner Campbell, from an
investigation of the wound, was able to
ascertain just how the shooting was
done. He found that Captain Bolton
shoved the revolver into his ear before
filing. The bullet shattered the skull,
and was cut out by the coroner on the
opposite side of the- head.
The funeral will take place this af
ternoon at 2:30 from Orr & Hines' to

Council's Committee and
the Inspectors
Some Interesting Revelations About
Preparation and Examination.
Matter Under Advisement
Boiler Inspector E. W. Church and
his deputy, Charles" M. Little were placed
on trial for their jobs last night at the
council chamber before a special com
mittee of the city council which had
been appointed to investigate the charg
es preferred against these officials by the
board of examining engineers. The
trial continued nearly three hours, but
the decision of the committee was not
rendered a 9 they took the matter under
advisement and will make their report
to the council Monday. There is not
much doubt as to what the decision will
be, for the trend of the case was against
the inspectors, and it is more than prob
able that the charges will be sustained.
In spite of the seriousness of the mat
ter to the two officers' the investigation
was not without Its amusing features.
There were- explanations galore which
did not explain; close approaches l to cli
maxes in which it seemed that the lie
would be given; developments'as to the
manner in which inspections had been
conducted which caused old engineers
to smile.
The fight between the Inspector and
his deputy against the rule of the board
of examiners dates- almost from the
time of the organization of the latter
boc'.iy. Since that time there have been
many phases to it and last night's in
vestigation was the culmination. To be
gin with, Inspector Church was not
recognized by the board until his bond
had been filed and fully approved, al
though his deputy, whose bond got In
first, was made secretary of the board.
Soon after the bond matter was settled
and Mr. Church w as Inducted into office
his deputy, Mr. Little, conceived an
idea by which he apparently hoped to
catch a few dimes or dollars on the
outside. The board was of course con
ducting examinations for engineers reg
ularly, but a few incompetent men had
been rejected when Mr. Little opened at
his home a school for engineers. The
.'chool prospered from the start and the
enterprising deputy found his coffers
lilling. About the same time the board
nf examiners noticed a great similarity
in the answers that all applicants were
making to the- list of questions giver,
them. These answers savored) of a
pre vious familiarity with the questions.
Then it was discovered that the ques
tions put to the pupils In Mr. Little's
kindergarten were almost Identical with
the board's list of questions. Of course
no intimation was then made that the
deputy was using the board's questions
or was schooling his patrons for exami
nations, but the board thought the
coincidence strange. Mr. Little's expla
nation of it last night was that he must
have secured his questions from the
same text books that the board used and
that he might have hit upon their ques
tions. At any rate, no charges were
openly made at that time of any jug
gling~"with the official list. The board
i'imply learned of the matter and quietly
changed its list of questions and) the
manner of conducting the examination.
That was but one chapter of the trouble,
but its sequel appeared- when a few days
after the change had been made there
appeared among the engineers a petition
addressed to the city council asking that
the board be abolished.. This received
many signatures, and by another strange
coincidence many of those who signed
It were or had' been under the tutelage
of Mr. Little. Then the board went to
work to fathom the entire trouble. It
was ascertained—f'o the board claims—
that Inspector Church was indirectly be
hind this petition; that it was written in
the city clerk's oflice, submitted to Mr.
Church, approved by him and then cir
culated. With the board the matter
;lo n became a fight for its own existence,
and the members began a quiet investi
gation of the manner In which the busi
ness of the boiler inspector's office was
It was found that since Mr. Church
has been in office 180 inspections had
been made, and of these all but nine
\vi re by hydrostatic pressure, and were
not, so it is alleged, by internal examina
tions. The board declared that they
were nearly all simply tests-, and not In
spections such as are provided for in
the ordinance. There were a number nf
instances In which only such a test was
possible, but it is said there were others
in which examinations were asked for,
but not made.
About that time there was a clash be
tween Inspector Church and Mr. Frank
Rademacher, engineer at Maler & Zobe
lein's brewery, who is himself a member
of the board of examiners. It seems
ibat twice Mr. Rademacher made en
gagements with Mr. Church to Inspect
the boilers which he operates, and. both
engagements were broken without ex
planation. Then the brewery firm re
ceived an official communication from
Mr. Church asking that they appoint a
time for the inspection. Naturally, the
firm demande d of Mr, Rademacher whs
he had not attended to the matter, when
as a matter of fact he had twice done so.
Mr. Rademacher laid the matter before
the board, and the other two members,
Messrs. G. W. Judkins and Fred J.
Fischer, passed a resolution calling upon
Mr. Church to explain to Mr. Rade
macher's employers that the latter had
not neglected his duty to them.
This was- not done and the resolution
was not placed on the minute book of
the board by Mr. Church, Its secretary.
Upon this was based later the charge
that Mr. Church refused to obey proper
When the petition for the removal of
the board was presented before the coun
cil the board promptly replied by filing
its charges based as stated. Council
men Baker, Gride"r and Matthus were
appointed to Investigate both the peti
tion and the charges and appointed last
night for hearing. Mr. Baker presided
at the investigation. The members of
the board of examiner*, Mr. Church, Mr.
Little and about thirty engineers were
in attendance at the beginning of the
session. After Mr. Baker had stated the
purpose of the meeting Mr. Rademacher
was asked to explain that portion of the
charges in which it is alleged that Mr.
Church was Interested in the petition for
the removal of the board.
Mr. Baker then requested any person
who had signed the petition for the re
.moval of the board to come forward and
make whatever complaint they had to
make, but there was no response.
Mr. Church was then asked to make
his defense. He began by saying that
he had had nothing to do with the peti
tion, and that so far ag he or his deputy
were concerned they had not engineered
the matter. His reason for not obeying
the order to work separately was that
he had injured his haUd and needed the
constant assistance of his deputy. He
had been unable to make interior inspec
tions of nearly all the boilers, either be
cause the manholes were too small or the
boilers were hot or because they were
such boilers as could not be entered.
Church then read a statement in his
own defense.
William Fischer was called upon and he
stated positively that Church had come
to him, told him about the petition and
as much as told him to sign it.
Messrs. Judkins and Fischer told th?
committee what they knew of the
charges, and they, too, were asked many
questions. Mr. Little also came in for
many questions and admitted having
made an insertion in the petition at Mr.
Church's direction before it was circu
lated. Forced to admit that he had
known about the petition, Church ex
plained that he did not think there was
anything dishonorable in his action.
The charges were taken up In detail, and
for more than hour there was a general
discussion in which several engineers
participated. Engineer Lafferty told
how the boiler in the Hoilenbeck hotei
had been damaged by a test in which
a high pressure had been applied to a
low pressure boiler. J. L. Ebey cited
another case somewhat similar.
Then came Deputy Little's time to
explain all about that school for en
gineers. Councilman Hutchison put the
question to him direct whether tha
school was not a humbug so far as mak
ing engineers was concerned, and
whether it was not simply for the pur
pose of coaching applicants so that they
could pass an examination. With some
difflctllty he elicited a qualified admis
sion that such was the case. This caused
considerable laughter at Little's ex
pense. The committee gave both sides
every opportunity to present their case,
and on motion of Councilman Baker the
matter was taken under advisement.
A Race With Death
The story of an unhappy bridegroom,
whose hair grew gray in a single morn
ing, and that the morning of his mar
riage, is reported from Zigard-, in Hun
Mltru Popa, born in Teregova, son of a
small farmer, and affianced to a daugh
ter of a prosperous citizen of Zigrad, re
cently started for Zigrad, there to wed
and bring home his bride. The place can
be reached in two hours by the mountain
road. There was, however, a short cut;
it led through the railway tunnel with a
single line- ot rail. Popa laid ear to the
ground and listened. As there was not
the slightest vibration he took courage
and ventured into the dark passage.
Here, the report goes on, he had been
stumbling along as best he could, when,
after ten minutes passed in the total
darkness, and being, as he judged, near
the center of the tunnel, he heard the
distant rumbling of an approaching
The noise grew louder behind him and
Popa ran; louder still, and Popa raced.
It was a via dolorosa with the small
point of daylight far off amid' the dark
ness, and if he could win it, then it meant
life, safety and bride, but the thunder of
the train grew ever nearer. Fortunate
ly the gradient was a steep one, and the
express was called express by courtesy
only, and the race between the man and
death terminated at the tunnel's outlet,
the man winning by about bis own
The mercifully sluggist "schnellzug"
passed into the daylight as the bride
groom fall prostrate on the bank. When
he had started- he had dark brown hair;
when he arrived at the bride's house it
was as white as the bride's veil. The
lady, however, accepted him on the
somewhat dubious ground "that the hair
would come all right in time, and that
the injury was covered by insurance."
