DESPONDENT AND SICK
WILLIAM WISCHMIEB TURNS ON
THE GAS AND DIES
His Wife Was Dead and His Children
Were Well Cared for—A Letter
of Explanation
Another unfortunate elected to die by
the gas method yesterday. This time it
was Henry Wischmier, a widower, 36
years of age, who formerly lived at Cin
cinnati, Ohio. The deed was committed
at the Grand Central hotel, on North
Main street, where Wischmler engaged
a room on Wednesday night, registering
from Santa Monica.
Shortly after noon yesterday the cham
bermaid sniffed gas in the hall and trietl
to find where it was coming from. The
odor seemed, to he strongest near the
room occupied by Wischmier, and she
decided to call him and see what wasthe
matter. Receiving no answer when she
knocked, the chambermaid called Joe
Orr ,one of the roomers at the place, who
looked over the transom and saw that
some one was lying upon the bed in the
room, apparently dead. The door was
forced open, and It was found that On
had not been mistaken.
Wischmler had apparently been dead
for several hours. He lay upon his back
with his arms by his side and his mouth
wide open. The expression upon his face
indicated that he had met a painless
death.
There are no gas burners in the rooms
at the hotel, although the pipes run
through so that burners can be- attached
at any time. The suicide had unscrewed
one of the joints in this pipe, which al
lowed a large quantity of gas to escape.
A letter was found on the mantel, writ
ten by Wischmier, in which he explained
the cause of his action. A copy of the
letter is as follows:
To Whom It May Concern: This Is to cer
tify that I am very despondent, melan
choly and sick and tired of this life, and
have nothing to live for but my two child
ren, aged 11 and I) years. I am out of em
ployment and bodily unable to work, and
do not care to live any longer. My wife
is dead; died Aug. 10, ISO 6. My children
are very well taken care of and live ln
clover with my father-in-law at Alle
gheny City, Pa. My father lives in Cleve
land, 0., 927 Pearl street, where I was born
May 16, ISGI. I am therefore 36 years 3
months and 16 days old. I am prepared to
meet my Lord and Redeemer, so good-hv to
all- I. HENRY WISCHMIER.
The coroner was notified and the body
was removed to Garrett's undet taking
parlors, where an inquest was held at 8
ocdock yesterday evening. Wdschmjer
formerly worked for Dexter Sampson,
the Spring street undertaker. The coro
ner's jury returned a verdict of suicide.
ESCAPED FROM THE COURTROOM
A Dope Fiend Eludes n Score of Pur
suers and Gets Away
For a few minutes yesterday afternoon
it looked as if a bomb had explodi d In
Justice Morrison's court room by the way
everybody pourtci out of the doors and
down the stairs. But it wasn't a bomb
or any other explosive that had caused
the excitement, In fact, It was only a
sickly dope fiend by the name of Frank
Horton, who seemed) almost too wasted
to stand on his feet alone that was re
sponsible for the confusion. He had
been brought Into court charged with
drunkenness and disturbing the peace
and was sentenced to fifty days in. jail.
Just as Bailiff Appe-i started toward the
prison with the dope fiend and several
others the former decided to make a
break for liberty. When the bailiffs
head, was turned he scooted off through
a side door into the hail and down the
stairs.
Several of the spectators In the court
room saw the play and sounded the
alarm. In an instanta dozen officers had
rushed out through the door and were
soon tearing down the stairs after the
fugitive. Lawyers, policemen and news
paper reporters all joined In the chase.
New life seemed to have been infused
Into the flendrs frail frame by the vision
of long weeks nf separation from the
orug he loved so well, and he proved ro
mean sprinter, showing only his heels
to the promiscuous crowd which had
taken after him. He cut aoroas First
street and ran between a row of houses
on the north side of the street. His pur
suers soon thinned out, but a policeman
and a reporter, the latter of whom is
recognised by the name of "Lengthy
Bob," kept up the chase until the fugi
tive was lost sight of. They returned to
tell how near they came to catching their
man, who had, however, made good his
escape.

IT IS ALL MADE OVER
THE WESTMINSTER ON THE WAY
TO COMPLETION
Tennessee Marble, Mexican Onyx and
Staff Used in Construction.
Steam and Electricity
The work of reconstruction Ib going
rapidly ahead at the Westminster, and
the result, which promises to be a Com
plete transformation from the interior
arrangement that has obtained ln the
past, will be readily recognizable when
the hotel opens, November Ist. There
will be but one entrance, and that on
Main street. It will measure fourteen
feet wide, will be flanked on either side
by brown stonercolumns 36 Inches square,
and they In turn will support a brown
stone slab upon which the name of the
hotel will be carved.
The floor of the main offlee is covered
with three-quarter Inch white tiles that
are dotted at intervals with stars of
blue There is also a border of blue tiles,
and all are vitrified, non-absorbent and
lustreless. There is a four-foot wains
coating in the ofllce of handsome Ten
nessee marble, with a pinkish gray
ground, broken with serpentine lines.
Heavy crossbeams divide theceiling into
large square panels, which at the inter
section of the side walls continue to the
floor in the form of pilasters, thus divid
ing the walls into panels as well. The
beams and pilasters are covered with
elaborately wrought cream white staff
work.
Down the center of the office are the
same supporting ironcolumns. which are
also covered with the staff. The paneled
wall and ceiling space is of rough plas
ter, tinted. The counter is of Mexican
onyx, supported by small onyx pillars,
and all beautifully grained and polished.
The working office is enclosed by a ten
foot partition; five feet of hard paneled
wood, the rest of cut glass. The main
staircase has been, carried back to the
elevator and leads to the second floor
with two turns. The stairs, banisters,
posts and landings are all of the Ten
nessee marble, and at each of the latter
are cushioned settees.
In arrangement the ladies' reception
room is just as it was. The floor is in
laid hard wood, and the supporting col
umns are covered as in the office, with
staff. Around all of the supporting col
umns on the ground floor are circular
steam radiators, and the whole house
will be heated by steam and lighted
throughout with electricity. The parlor
on the second floor is left practically as
it was.
From the old barber shop back of the
ofllce on the Fourth street side has been
evolved a handsome reading and. writ
ing room for men, and an entrance has
been cut through to the barber shop
that faces on Main street. A grill room
has been constructed out of the old bil
liard room, and above the doorway in
the wide corridor that leads to the din
ing room is a balcony for musicians, en
cased In art glass. In the latter room,
which has been, much enlarged, there is
a hard wood inlaid floor of Shasta pine.
The east windows are of art glass, as
are the Fourth street windows in the
main office.
The upper floors have been quite met-
amorphosed—windows and doors cut
through, rooms thrown together, parti
tion removed and wells built. Each
suite has its bath, with tiled walls and
porcelain tubs, stand ing on marble slabs.
There is new plumbirug throughout, and
the building is to be refurnished from
ground to roof.

THE PROPOSED BOULEVARD
The Buena Vista Street Route Has
Warm Advocates
At the meeting held by the North
west Los Angeles Improvement associa
tion last evening at 1034 Temple street,
President Bartels was absent, and W. A.
Stratton acted as chairman. Thomas
Kelley presented an argument advocat
ing the Buena Vista street route from
the old Plaza to Elysian park for the
boulevard. It was accepted and Mr.
Kelley was instructed to publish it. The
argument is as follows:
"The Northwest Los Angeles Improve
ment association, ever alive to the inter
ests of the Second ward, has taken up
the matter of procuring the Los Angeles
and Pasadena boulevard by the Buena
Vista street route from the old Plaza to
Fremont gate, which is the main en
trance to Elysian park. This park com
prises about Gi'O acres of land admirably
adapted for park purposes. Its magnifi
cent aggregation of hills, vales, canyons
and plateaus, beautiful knolls and wind
ing paths, with a panoramic view from
the higher elevations, unsurpassed in
Southern California, form a combina
tion of attractive features of which
every citizen of Los Angeles may
feel proud.
"What Regents park is to London, the.
Bois de Boulogne to Paris, Central park
to New York, and Golden Gate park to
San Francisco, Elysian park should be
to beautiful Los Angeles, the future
Paris of America, where Dame Nature
has bestowed her gifts with such lavish
hand. This park should be improved by
drives, walks, terraces, grottoes, water
falls, cascades, lakes, fountains, brooks,
rustic bridges, islands, etc. Trees,
shrubbery, plants and flowers of every
variety would grow luxuriantly all the
year round In this park. The sheltered
nooks being frostless, the most delicate
trees, plants and flowers grown in tropi
cal regions would thrive there and add
immeasureably to the attractions of
the park.
"Therefore, we think that on account
of the great importance of a broad street
to the entrance of Elysian park, would
determine a majority of the property
owners to favor Buena Vista street over
any other route. Besides, if in the
future the parks should be connected by
one grand boulevard running around the
city, this will be one link in the chain."
The following resolution was also pre
sented and adopted:
"Resolved, By the Northwest Improve
ment association, in regular meeting
assembled, that we heartily favor the
Buena Vista street, Pasadena avenue
and Orange Grove avenue route for the
boulevard to Pasadena, according to the
petitions and maps filed with the city
clerk of Los Angeles on August 9, 1897;
and
"Resolved, That we earnestly urge the
board of public works to recommend the
granting of said petitions at its meeting
on September 3d, without further de
lay." •
A committee composed of'VV. A. Strat
ton, A. C. Summers, Thomas Kelley
and J. A. Craig was appointed to confer
with the boulevard committee at the

AT THE THEATERS
ORPHEUM.-The attractive bill of
fare presented at this house draws large
audiences every night. The star of the
past two weeks will leave after Sunday
night, so that only a few opportunities
are yet available for seeing heir in the
dances which she has made her own.
Papinta, the "myriad dancer," os the
eastern Journals have called heir, from
her use of many mirrors which reflect her
poKeu and movements from every point
of view, grows in favor with each repe
tition of her four favorite dances, in
which she appears in all the seductive
combinations of colorings that art can
produce, or human ingenuity Invent.
Her grace and. sprightliness give a char
acter to this unique exhibition that
makes every performance have a dis
tinctive charm of its own.
The singers, Elvira Fa-encelll and
Tom Lewis, have gathered fresh laurels
each evening for their artistic and, yet
unpretentious rendering of operatic and
other airs. The Creole song is one of
their most popular selections.
The Nieholls sisters- in black face are
highly praised for their spirited and cor
rect reproduction of the manners and
customs, of the southern darkey ladies,
and their turn is a particularly clever
one.
Ous Williams, Hilda Thomas and the
remaining notabilities on the program
secure their share of the applause also.

BURBANK THEATER.—The form of
entertainment .preferred by the patrons
of this house is< made amply evident by
the nightly increase of its patronage.
"The Bowery Girl" goes" largely because
of the introduced specialties, which are
very well done by Grade Plaisted, Dick
Sullivan and others. There is no coher
ence even from the melodramatic point
of view to "The Bowery Girl" as a play,
but the audience likes it and it is full of
life, incident and high strung dialogue.
Everybody has a knife or a pistol readiy
for everybody else, and when somebody
is not being abducted or thrown into a
river, a mine explosion is on hand to fin
ish their business. The play is highly
exciting, but not regarded as dangerous.

The Veil on the Sailor Hat
The fasihion of tying white veils around
all kinds of hats is already becoming so
general that it Is no longer good form.
A pronounced> feature of summer shoul

the appearance of an extended neck ruff.

Queen Victoria and the empress of
Austria represent the extremes in
weight among the royal ladies of Eu
rope. Victoria weigs a plump 224 pounds
and the Austrian empress but 102. The
dift'eience in their height is also ex
tremely marked, bo that if they stand
side by side they would be a living rep
resentation of the familiar picture, "The
Long and Short of It."
When Queen Victoria visited the Dub
lin exhibition in 1849, with here two eld
est children, an Irish farmer came near
the royal carriage in one of the parks
and said: "May lt.please your majesty,
call the next one Patrick." In the fol
lowing year was born the. Duke of Con
naught, who was christened Arthur
William Patrick Albert.
