Mayor Snyder Repudiates
an Interview
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
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
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

Los Angeles Defeats Santa
Cruz at Fiesta Park
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

As Tom by Luetgert on the
Witness Stand
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
• What was the first thing you did that
"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
"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
' 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
"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
"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
Luetgert hesitated for some moments
before speaking.
• Well, my wife made some remarks
I do not want to repeat," he finally re
"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
"My wife asked me about the manner

this is all we get for our thirty years'
work,' she said, 'since we came to Amer
"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
"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
"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
"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.
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
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

towards the tribune, but he was seized
by Socialists and a series of fights en

his way to the tribune and struck M.
The Conservatives and Soclialists
charged the platform and the melee be

chamber, M. Brisson, being powerless
to restore order, left the chair, saying:

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
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

When and Where the Complex Ma

Repaired and Cared For
During the past few weeks the human
stomach has been removed without causing
death, and in one particular instance with
out inconvenience to the patient. 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

quantity of liver sugar to be used in the
human system. Bnt the real work of the
