HE DENIES IT Mayor Snyder Repudiates an Interview A LIE OUT OF WHOLE CLOTH BADLY MIXED ATTEMPT TO MAN UFACTURE A SENSATION iurid Headlines Over a Tissue of Falsehoods—The Call's Latest Break—Talk With the Mayor After several days of effort to con vince the people of Los Angeles that it bad a mortgage on misinformation from this city, the San Francisco Call in Fri day's Issue capped the climax by a much-mixed attempt to couple the water question, as it is now before the public, with the burning of the Pico Heights school house on account of a lack of water supply, totally ignoring the fact that that district is supplied by an en tirely different company, in no way in terested in the present proceedings: In double-column headlines and black face display type the Call delivered it self: NO WATER TO FIGHT THE FIRE Los Angeles Is In Dally; Danger of a Dis astrous Conflagration And Still the Allied Villainies of the South ern Metropolis Plead for Delay in Securing City Water Following these startling emanations was an alleged extract from an inter view with Mayor M. P. Snyder, in which he is made to say: The fire On Pico Heights 1* an unanswer able plea for the early settlement of the water question. The three syndicated dai lies can now continue their policy of de fending those officials who are blocking the city's acquisition of its water plant. If they wish, but every time they/bolster up procrastination la this matter they are jeopardizing the lives and property of hundreds of people. Every day of delay, that could be avoid ed by the city council taking up the ques tion and treating it intelligently, honestly and fearlessly as representatives of the people, and not as special pleaders of the water company would be a great! boon to the people. Just think of those Innocent • ehool children whose lives were in danger this afternoon. Why, the contemplation ls appalling. If anything was needed to arouse the people to action, my opinion Is that Providence has sent that thing. This homily would he ' important if true," but unfortunately is totally with out foundation. Mayor Snyder yester day morning stated emphatically that not a word of the alleged statement or interview had been Bpoken or written by him. He was at a loss to know how such inane words could have been put in his mouth. The only time that he had furnished anything for the Call was a signed statement which he gave to the repre sentative In this city in reply to a re quest for his views on the water gui S tion. He claimed to know nothing of other interviews, nor of the use to which his statement was To be put in an at tempt to bolster up the Cull's position. Heing asked for a signed refutation of the. fraudulent interview, he declined, saying that he had had enough and would go no further into the matter he "did not propose to give out any more statements—and the interview closed. KNOCKED SPEECHLESS An Attempt to Catch an Electric Car Proves Disastrous ■Wilfred Smith, aged 19, who resides at 921 West Jefferson street, had a narrow escape from death under the wheels of | a Main street car at 11:86 o'clock las*, night. As it was he was injured in a peculiar manner, and for a time it was thought he would be speechless for a long time, and perhaps permanently. With his brother, Cecil Smith, he went to Chinatown, and afterward to the Orpheum theater. Leaving there, they walked about for a time and then de cided to return home. A Main street car had just passed the corner of Third street when Wilfred started to catch it, calling to his brother to follow him. The car was going at full speed, and just as he reached for the hand railing his foot Slipped, and lie was throw n headlong to the street. He fell in such a manner that the rear step of the- car struck him on the hip. His head was down, and the additional blow caused his head to Strike in one of the holes in the street. He was unconscious when his brother reached him a moment later. The car was stopped at once and both Conductor David Brooks and Motorman J. F. Mc- Closky went back to where the injured man lay. They could do nothing, how every, and returned to their car. The patrol wagon was called, and Smith was taken to the receiving hospital, He re covered consciousness sonn after his arrival there, hut was unable to speak, although he knew all that was said to him. Dr. Hagan, who was called, said the case was a most peculiar 0n,,, and one which rarely occurred. He said the injury had temporarily paralyzed the man's speech-center, making it impos sible for him to articulate. 11,■ later partially recovered his voice, and wanted to be taken home, lie was put to bed in the hospital, however, and was not taken home until II o'clock this morning.

WITH THE BAT Los Angeles Defeats Santa Cruz at Fiesta Park AN EXCELLENT GAME OF BALL UP TO THE EIGHTH INNING NEITHER SIDE SCORED 1 Good Team Work and Good Catches at Critical Moments Were the Fea tures—Another Game Today What was perhaps the best and clean est game of baseball that has been con tested here this reason was that played yesterday at Fiesta park between the new Los Angeles club and the team from Santa Cruz which made such an excellent showing in the San Francisco tournament. The prediction had been made that it would be a good game but even the management did not expect to see such playing as the two clubs put up. Tho score. 5 to 1, in favor of the home team, does not indicate in any manner the relative merit of the two clubs, for as is often the case Los An geles won by taking advantage of an opportunity which the other side af forded them to pile up the scores. It can not be said positively that the local club is any better than the visit ing nine because one game cannot be taken as finally settling the question of superiority. Two more evenly matched clubs in point of the quality of their work would be hard to find. In the manner in which Santa Cruz plays the came is four ' an explanation of their recent showing north. There is a total absence of efforts to attain individual prominence at the expense of the club's standing or chances of winning. It is the team work which wins games and it ls team work upon which Santa Cruz re lies. A lover of the sport might witness a dozen national league games and not see such playing as the 300 people who went to Fiesta park yesterday saw. The game throughout was a series of close plays and there was not an innins of the whole nine in which some brilliant piece of work was not cheered by the spectators. To particularize and give a description of all the fine plays would require columns of space. Perhaps the most difficult catch was made by Hop kins in right field. Three men w ere on bases and two men were out when Dev eraux. Santa Cruz's best batter, drove the ball into right for what looked 1 ik a circuit of the bases. Hopkins ran backwards as fast us he could, jumped in air. his right hand shot upward and he nabbed the ball, saving the game. Decker made a fine catch in left field in the eighth inning which prevented two runs. Leland came in for equal credit by making an equally good stop. Balsz. the Santa Cruz pitcher, will be in the national league some day if he pitches as w ell in all games as he did yesterday. Deveraux carried oft the batting hon ors, making three hits out of four times at bat. Harvey held the visitors down to five hits and two of them were barely hits. Steinfeldt held down the third base bag in a manner which would have made Collins, who leads the third base men, envious of his work. Steinfeldt plays with Cincinnati this season at a four-figure salary. Three of the horn team s five scores were made on Dun gan's two-base bit in the seventh in ning.

JANUARY 23, 1898 A SOAP STORY As Tom by Luetgert on the Witness Stand DETAILS OF THE FATAL DAY TOLD WITHOUT CHANGE FROM FORMER ACCOUNTS Fear of Poverty Assigned as the Rea son For the Disappearance of the Woman Associated Press Special Wire CHICAGO, Jan. 22.—The crowd at the Luetgert murder trial today was greater even than the day before. When Luet gert took the stand today he was appar ently much more composed than yester day and answered the questions pro pounded him by his counsel ln a firm voice. The defendant was inclined to go into details more than his attorney, Mr. Harmon, desired. When asked to pay less attention to detail, Luetgert with some show of anger, said that he would tell his story thoroughly or not at all. The most important feature of Luet gert's recital today was his narration of the reason for the presence of potash in his factory. He said it had been in his factory nearly two months before the day of his wife's disappearance: that it had not been concealed and that he was to make soft soap out of it. The prisoner also told of his sleeping in the factory, which he explained, was nec essary because there were many things to which he had to attend to at night. When Luetgert finally reached that part of the story enumerating the hap penings on May Ist. the date of his wife's disappearance, the audience and jury paid the closest attention. "Do you remember what transaction you made on the morning of May 1st?" asked Attorney Harmon. "I ate breakfast early and went to my office." • What was the first thing you did that day?" "I gave some orders. I old my men to go to the basement to remove some bar rels of salt. I then went down and saw that the three barrels of tallow were in their place." Continuing, the witness told of burled bones he had in the factory basement and of fat he intended to convert into sausage. He told of the small meat market he conducted. ■When you purchased a barrel of pot ash early in March," asked Mr. Harmon, "what was your purpose?" "To make soft soap." "What arrangement, if any, had you made with reference to cleaning the factory?" "One day. after the Xew York trip, Mr. Charles came home and said there was i chance to sell the factory. He told me to keep the place very clean as the people did not know anything about the business and w hat we would call clean, they would call dirty. Well, I argued the stuff I had then for fat I could not sell: potash was cheap and I thought it was cheaper to make soap. When I used to work for F.ngel Brothers, 1 learned the recipe for making soap." Inspector Schaak, who sat alongside the jury, smiled as Luetgert told of his •xperiences In the line of making soft soap. ' When did you first see this barrel of potash?" asked Mr. Harmon. "The next day." • Where did it stand?" "It was between the office and the meat market, where everybody who ante in could not help but see it." "Did you give any orders about that barrel?" "Yes. I told Smokehouse Frank to break it up and told him it was stuff that would burn, and to cover his face so that he would not get hurt." "Now, will you tell me why you de layed from March until two weeks before .May Ist, before making the soap?" "The men came too soon to see the fac tory, before it was cleaned." • What time Saturday. May Ist, did you return home?" asked Attorney Har mon. "Oh, I can't tell the exact hour. It was late in the afternoon." •What was said in conversation be tween you and your wife while eating .-upper?" Luetgert hesitated for some moments before speaking. • Well, my wife made some remarks I do not want to repeat," he finally re plied. "Tell us all about that conversation," -aid Mr. Harmon. "Mr. Harmon." replied Luetgert, "I will not repeat what my wife said that light unless forced to." "Mr, Luetgert," said his senior coun lel, "you will not be forced to tell any thing you do not wish, but as your coun sel, I want you to tell every word that passed between you and your wife that night." "My wife asked me about the manner if fur closing mortgages and when 1 told her she said: 'Then we will lose verythlng.' 1 told her we would. 'Then this is all we get for our thirty years' work,' she said, 'since we came to Amer ica.' "I told her it could not be helped, that I w as nut afraid to work and would face the world afresh and work hard for a living if necessary." As he told of the loss of his fortune and his willingness to begin all over agitin, Luetgert seemed to be greatly affected. Teat's came to his eyes, his chin trembled and lumps rose in his throat. "My wife said she was not afraid, but that I could work and earn a living," continued Luetgert, "'But what will people nay? They will laugh at us.' she said. I told her to let them laugh: that laughing would not take away my work. She said: 'If this should conn-, I don't want to live.' She said she wished tie children were dead. About this time Louis came in and asked for money to go to a circus, anil his mother told him that we had no money for circuses. I gave the boy ten cents." "What happened next?" asked Har mon. "She said: 'If th<> Sheriff should come, you will not find me here.' I told her that it was foolish to talk that way. She said it was not foolish; that there was noth ing foolish about it and if things kept on as they had for the last two months, 1 would not see her any more. I laughed and said she had better stay with her ohildren. She Bald that I had always laughed at her. I did not pay much at tention to her remarks because she had been talking like that for several months." "How was Mrs. Luetgert's mind af fected by the long illness of your little boy, Elmer, the winter before?" askd Mr. Harmon. "It affected her a great deal and she often made the remark that she would rather see the child dead than alive. She made these remarks in the presence of both children." "Do you recollect what time of the night it was?" "I don't remember exactly," Luet gert said. He then told of his going home and afterwards said: "When I saw my wife she was sitting in the kitchen against the east wall and reading a paper. I think it was a German paper. I could not find the tea and asked her where it was. She said she did not know but that the girl always tended to that. The girl was in bed. I found the tea in the basement pantry and went upstairs again. There I saw Louis and my wife.'' Luetgert told next of speaking to Louis and of carrying a lantern, which he always did in going to the In answer to a question he said: "I turned and left the house by the north door; yes, that was the last time I saw my wife." Luetgert had his eyes fixed on the jury as he said this. The jury leaned for ward in their seats and paid the closest attention to the narrative. When questioned again as to whether he knew at what time ot the night he re turned to the factory, Luetgert said once more he did not know, not having looked at a clock. "Do you remember what kind of weather it was?" asked Mr. Harmon. "Yes, tt was cloudy weather." At this point, the court took a recess. FREE FIST FIGHTING IN THE FRENCH CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES The Mere Mention of the Name of Dreyfus Suffices to Cause an Uproar PATHS, Feb. 22.—The chamber of deputies was thronged today and there was great excitement when Cavagnaic repeated the Interpellation of the gov ernment on the subject of Dreyfus. He affirmed the existing report of Capt. de Renaud, containing the confession of Dreyfus, whose guilt, he added, was thus established, and blamed the govern ment's silence. M. Meline. in reply, said he could not communicate the contents of Capt. de Renaud's report. The government did not think it right to publish it. because the ministers thought once only the discussion was opened it could not be closed. M. Cavagnaic stated that the moral result sought had been attained and that he desired to withdraw his interpella tion. This caused great excitement in the house, and M. Jaures. the Socialist leader, reintroduced M. Cavaignaic's in terpellation for the government. He pro tested against the attack on the So cialists, and accused the Conservatives of helping to adopt reactionary methods and of preparing a way for debate. The accusation caused a tumult among the members of the chamber. Continuing, M. Jaures characterized as "lies" the incomplete charges "filed in the prosecution of Zola." (Applause from the Left. M. de Bornls, Conservative, accused M. Jaures of being the spokesman of the Dreyfus syndicate, to which M. Jaures replied: "You are a scoundrel and a coward." M. de Bornls thereupon made a rush towards the tribune, but he was seized by Socialists and a series of fights en sued, during which M. de Bornis fought his way to the tribune and struck M. Jaures. The Conservatives and Soclialists charged the platform and the melee be came general, with fighting and shout ing on all sides. The president of the chamber, M. Brisson, being powerless to restore order, left the chair, saying: "I am going to consult the procurator general." A few minutes later the order was given to clear the tribune, amidst the greatest excitement among the contend ing deputies and journalists, who were threatening and jostling each other and almost coming to blows. Several persons in the press galleries exchanged blows during the uproar, and the people in the public galeries climbed upon the seats, shouting encouragingly or allusively at the deputies. When the order was given to clear the tribune the reporters were invited to retire, but before doing so several of them made a demonstration in favor of M. Jaures, shouting "Bravo, viva Jaures." The subsequent proceedings in tho chamber were not known for some time, as the doors were closed, but later it was announced that the bureau of the chamber was In session under tho pres idency of M. Hrvison, considering meas ures advisable to be taken. MORE RIOTINO ALGIERS, Jan. 22.—Further anti- Hebrew demonstrations have taken place here, in which the windows of a number of Jewish shops were smashed. The streets are now patrolled by troops. Birthday Dinner Dr. and Mrs. H. W. Tebbetts of 160" S. Grand avenue entertained with a din ner on Friday evening in honor of the twentieth birthday of their son Hiram. Covers were laid for ten, and the favors were ink caricatures of the guests. Those prescent were: Misses Real, Ar nold. Turner. Itose and Martin: Messrs. Christy, Martin, Crist, Thomson and Tebbetts. Chinese New Year The usual crowd of slght-eeera thronged Chinatown last night and the rowdies and roughs, as usual, made life a burden for the Celestials.

The prin cipal part of the New Year's ceremonies Is now over, atul little remain!! to be seen in the Chinese quarter.

The source of this information is the most reli able, and while it may confirm the oft repeated statement that surgical operations have attained a degree of perfection during recent years that astonishes those who use the knife as well as the world at lartte, there is no doubt but that thousands of lives are yearly sacrificed on the operating table. And to the laity, the man who is not versed in the manner in which the body is con structed, nor to w hat extent it may be dis sected while life exists without serious or fatal damage, it seems that surgical opera tions Should be reduced to a minimum, it not altogether done away with. With this end in view, and a laudable ambition to further health and happiness. The English and German Expert Specialists hive devoted many years of careful research, close appli cation and an untold amount ot successful p.-act ice. Believing it will benefit as well as interest people generally to know more about man's make-up, the doctors of this great institu tion propose to publish a series of illustra ted articles on the subject. Today the dis eases and symptoms of two of our most important organs, the kidney and the liver, will be briefly mentioned. The thousands of cases of diseases ol both these organs which The English and German Expert Specialists have cured at various stages, during the past twenty-live years, enable them to deal with such subjects in a most intelligent manner. The Liver The function of the liver is to aid in the digestion of food. It also has a sugar-form ing function, and makes quite a respectable quantity of liver sugar to be used in the human system. Bnt the real work of the :iver is to make and secrete bi'e juice. This bile secretion is collected in the liver cells and ducts and passes out of the liver pto the gall bladder.

In the small intestine it meets the food fronj the stomach and • begins Its digestive action. The starchy and fatty foods are not digested by the stomach juices, hence there is'much work to be performed by the bile, the pancreatic fluid and the intestinal juices before the food is passed on to the large bowel and cast off. The bile digests the starchy and fatty constituents of the food and renders them so soluble that the little absorbent vessels pick up the line particles of nourishment and carry them away to nourish the body. Gallstone, with Deposit at One End Symptoms of Liver Troubles: A sense of fullness over the liver, with a feeling of weight and dragging on that side. At times the waistbands become uncomfortable and breathing is difficult; dull pain under the right shoulder blade. On placing the fingers just below the ribs and pressing firmly over the liver surface a slight soreness will be noticed. The stomach disorders that result from some forms of liver trouble are due to in creased activity going on in that organ and are most distressing. Sour stomach, bitter eructations, bloating, foul breath, dull head ache and dislike tor exertion; the dryness Of throat ami mouth, and bitter taste morn ings, are always present. The appetite is poor and the food has no flavor—even the memory fails and a depression of spirits comes on. Jaundice is the most serious complication of liver troubles and may be due to several causes. Whether it be due to catarrh of the bile ducts, tumors, cancer, abscesses, ob struction or wasting of the liver, is an im portant question to be decided before intel ligent treatment can be given. The methods employed by The English and German Expert Specialists are so thorough and scientific that the cause of the iaundice is carefully detected, and the treatment is then most successful. Compound Gallstones, it centric Laminae The Kidneys Many people realize that they are ailing from some cause or other, but neither they nor their family physician can locate the disease or loosen the deadly fangs of the in satiate monster that has fastened upon them. Such victims must succumb at no distant day unless rescued by the help of a skillful hand. The whole system is drained through the kidneys. The enormous quantity of impuri ties of the blood, including a vast amount of poisonous matter, must be carried off and drained through these organs. If they fail to fulfill their important functions, these deadly materials must remain in and taint the blood, thus hastening death. Symptoms: The urine may give either pleasant or disagreeable odors, or the smell may be like the mild fumes Bf ammonia. A deposit of brickdust may occur in the dark urine, and a white, cloudy deposit may ap pear in the lighter urine. The quantity Will Vtry, being less when the urine is dark and Greater when the urine is pale in color, ometimes a brickdust sediment will fall to the bottom after the urine has stood a while. Crystals of Urn Acid Again, the deposit may be thick, white and ropy. These deposits indicate the beginning of disease in the kidneys, and should serve as a warning that help is needed. The changing of color and quantity of urine is another warning that your kidney Is wrong. Pain over the region of the kidneys in the small of the back, with dull, heavy pains extending lower down in the back, are sure signs of serious and well-established kidney trouble. The various organs of the body begin to show evidences of the trouble in the kidneys. The heart is overstrained trying to push the blood through the blocked and clogged kidneys. The blood becomes loaded with impurities that it can not cast off in the natural way. Microscopic examinations and chemical analysis are the surest methods of detect ing in the urine signs of kidney trouble. By this process there is no uncertainty—no haphazard estimates. Mach cell and particle of the granules of the deposit give up their secrets! The microscope owned and used by The English and German Expert Specialist! is the most powerful and costly ever brought to the Pacific Coast. Do not wait until you feel a pain in your kidneys before vou'have the condition ot those delicate and important organs ex amined. Thousands of people die every year from kidney diseases and never experience a pain. In fact, more than half the kidney diseases are painless. This does not mean, however, tnat diseased kidneys may not be painful. Some diseases of this nature pro duce the most excruciating suffering man kind has ever experienced. I Phosphatic Deposit from Diseased Kidney The kidney expert of The English and Ger man Expert Specialists has made a careful study of these organs for many years. He urges the importance of having the kidneys tested frequently, and states that an untold number of deaths occur every month from kidney ailments, and that the cause of many such deaths is a mystery to most physicians. There is no disease so deceptive, and none so fatal after it has passed a certain stage. Gall Stones Gall stones are concretions which form in the ducts of the liver, the bile ducts and the gall bladder. The symptoms are very sudden and distressing pains, frequently of a tearing, grinding character, sometimes so severe that the sufferer faints. The English and German Expert Specialists never fail in curing this trouble.
