BLOOD AT CALABASAS
A MYSTERIOUS MURDER RE
PORTED TO THE'OFFICERS
Coroner and Deputy Sheriff Summoned
But No News of the Particulars
of the Crime Yet
A message from San Fernando yes
terday afternoon to Coroner Campbell
Informed him that a murder had been
committed at Calabasas yesterday
morning. No details of the tragedy, not
even the names of the parties, were giv
en. The coroner and his deputy, John
Summerfleld, left at once for the place.
About the same time a similar mes
sage was received at the county Jail.
Under Sheriff Clements and Deputy
Sheriff Harding started for the scene of
the crime, hoping to arrest themurderer.
Sheriff Burr was at San Fernando and
was sconce communicated with and told
of the crime.
Calabasas is nearly forty miles from
the city and is remote from telegraph
or telephone stations. There are no
means of communicating with the place
and the particulars of the murder could
not be learned last night. Up to 4 oclock
this morning the officers had not re
turned. ~
LOST THEIR ALL
The Verter Family Burned Out on
Alvarado Street
The members of John Verter's fam
ily lost all they possessed and came
near being burned to death in a fire
which destroyed their home on Alvarado
street, near Berkeley, shortly before 10
oclock last night. The family occupied
a six-room cottage, remote from other
dwellings. Verter, his wife and eight
children retired last night about 9
oclock, and about an hour later Patrol
man Arguello discovered that the roof
of their house was in flames. The fire
had started from a defective flue and
was fanned by a strong wind. The offi
cer was nearly a quarter of a (title away
when he flrat saw the fire, and by the
time he reached the building the flames
bad spread until the entire roof was
ablaze. He aroused the inmates, and
they had barely time to leave the build
ing before a portion of the roof fell In.
Verter and one of his sons made every
effort to save their household goods,
rushing repeatedly Into the burning
building and carrying out small articles.
They were not able to save much, but
managed to secure the clothing of the
other members of the family. Verter
was severely but not seriously burned
about the arms and face and his son's
hands were blistered. The house was
totally destroyed, and there was no In
surance on it. The loss will amount to
about S2OOO.
"Three Great Ideas"
A large audience assembled 'at Bin
vatsky hall last night to listen to a lec
ture by H. B. Leader on "Three Greal
Ideas." The first idea, said the speaker,
,1s that there Is a great cause—tn the
sense of an enterprise—called the Cause
of Sublime Perfection and Human
Brotherhood. This rests upon the es
sential unity of the whole human fam
ily, and Is a possibility, because sublim
ity in perfection and the actual realiza
tion of brotherhood on every plane are
one and the same thing. The second
Idea is that man Is a being who may be
raised up to perfection. This noble doc
trine was In the mind of Jesus, no doubt,
when he said that we must be perfect.
?ven as is the Father in heaven. This
is the idea of human perfection. The
third idea Is that these Ideals, as living
facts, will fill the soul with hope and
raise all who wish to help'the human
race to a realization of universal broth
erhood.
Insane From Illness
Mrs. Lucia A. Harris, Violently Insane,
,vas arrested yesterday afternoon by
Patrolmen Robblns and Conley at her
home on Sixth street, near Pearl, at the
request of her-relatlves. She had been
111 of typhoid fever several weeks ago,
and when she recovered her reason was
dethroned. She was taken to the police
station and later removed to the county
hospital. It is thought her insanity will
yield to proper treatment.
A Yuma Suspect
James O'Neal, who was held to answer
on a charge of burglary at Fort Yuma,
San Diego county, Saturday afternoon,
was brought to this city last night by
Deputy Sheriff W. C. Horan of that
county. He was locked up over night In
the city jail, and will be taken to San
Diego this morning. He is accused of
having robbed a store in Fort Yuma of
$50 worth of goods.
Too Much "Red"
Louise Maublin, who resides at 806
Howard street, was sent to the receiving
hospital yesterday afternoon, uncon
scious. It was supposed she had taken
an overdose of laudanum or some other
opiate, but Dr. Hagan discovered that
her condition was due to a too-familiar
association with "Dago red." The stom
ach pump was applied and she was soon
returned to consciousness.
Y. M. C. A. Annual Meeting

Men's Christian association occurs this
evening. There will be short reports of

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24, l&9s
SAN PEDRO EXCITED
RUMORS ABOUT A NEW RAILWAY
PROJECT
Andrew-Wolff Moore to Ask for a
Franchise—He le Noncom
mittal As to His Plans

San Pedro has a man of mystery, who
Is creating considerable excitement in
the harbor town, which Is now ripe for
all kinds of surprises In the way of de
velopment affairs. This man Is named
Andrew Wolff Moore, and he has the
reputation of being a man of some note
In the railway world in the east. How
long he has been here, and what he In
tends to do, are matters that can only
be surmised, beyond the few Indications
that he has given out himself.
What gives him present prominence
in San Pedro, and, as a result, in Los
Angeles, is the fact that he has told a
friend that he intends to ask for a fran
chise on West street in that city at the
next meeting of the city council. The
man to whom he told this is an old
friend of his, named M. T. Atkins of Riv
erside, who knew him In the east when
he waa the right-of-way man for Jay
Gould.
West street is one of the wide avenues
of San Pedro, which runs along the north
side of the town, skirting the additions
which have lately been made to the
place. It extends from the eastern lim
its of the town to the Southern Pacific
lands on Point Flrmln, and reaches ex
actly to where a new railway would wish
to come In. Mr. Moore added that he
bad his right of way alongside the coun
ty road, but from what polht he did not
see fit to tell.
The story has some significance when
It Is taken in connection with the news
published In The Herald recently, that
right-of-way agents are securing pas
sage for a railway from Manhattan
Junction, where the Santa Fe and the
Terminal cross tracks west of the city,
to Pomona, paralleling the Southern Pa
cific from Puente to Pomona. This was
thought to be some move of the Terminal
but this Is now contradicted by
General Manager Hynes and Vice Pres
ident T. E. Gibbon. The Inference, then,
is fair that this scheme may be part of
Mr. Moore's plan, In which case the en
terprise may assume most important
proportions.

DEATH OF A PIONEER
EX-MAYOR NICHOLS JOINS THE
GREAT MAJORITY
Expires From an Attack of Congestion
of the Lungs—First Mayor After
Admission of California
John G. Nichols, one of the oldest
American residents of Los Angeles, died
Saturday night at the home ef his son,
City Auditor T. E. Nichols, 221 West
Thirty-first street, after an illness of
but a few days' duration. The cause of
his death was congestion of the lungs,
resulting from a severe cold contracted
about a week ago. The end had been ex
pected for some time and he breathed
his last surrounded by those of his chil
dren who are in the city. The deceased
was in his 86th year.
Mr. Nichols played a leading part In
the early history of Los Angeles, being
one of the most prominent residents of
the city during the troublesome times
before, during and after the Mexican
war. In 1852 he was elected mayor of
the city, being the first mayor after the
admission of California into the union.
He served one year and after his re
tirement from office took a prominent
part in public affairs for years, although
he did not again hold a city office. He
was the father of the first American
child born in Los Angeles—his son, John
G. Nichols, jr., who was born April 15,
1851, enjoying that distinction.
Of late years he has made him home
with his son and has not on account of
his advanced age been prominent In
ptiblie affairs. Several years ago he sus
tained an Injury from which he never
fully recovered. He was coming out
of the Potomac block and stopped to
watch the moving of the old Presbyteri
an church which stood at the southeaet
corner of Second and Broadway. While
gazing upward he tripped and fell on
the stone steps and fractured his hip,
The Injury came near causing his death,
but by careful nursing he survived, al
though he was never again as active as
before, and since then has spent most of
his time at home. He was known to all
the pioneers of the city and county and
his acquaintances among the citizens
who came to the city later numbered
hundreds.
Four sons and two daughters survive;
him. They are: T. E.. John G. and-Elmer
E. Nichols of this city, D. B. Nichols of
Guadalajara, Mexico.; Mrs. Florida Carr
of Yreka, Cal., and Mrs. Roba Carlln of
San Francisco.
For years Mr. Nichols was a member
of the Methodist church. The funeral
will take plaoe this afternoon at 2*oclock
from the Vincent M. E. church. The in
terment will be at Rosedale cemetery.
