As Much Blood In Evidence as if a
Small Battle Had Occurred.
Notes and Personals
Captain A. C. Jones, who was one of the
passengers on the Santa Fe train that was
wrecked on Tuesday at Wlnslow, states
that the affair was much more serious than
has as yet leaked out through the reports,
owing to the policy of the railway com
pany through General Manager Nevin ln
suppressing the details as far as possible.
Captain Jones says ttmt the sights after
the accident were horrible. There was us
much blood in evidence as if a battle had
occurred. The passengers were forced out
of the cars, many of them in their night
clothes, and were bedraggled ln the waters
of the Little Colorado river, intiu which
the cars were thrown, and were streaming
with blood. One old man was perfectly
covered with Dm streams from his wounds, i
and walked up and down shaking the drops
from his hands and arms. The railway
men refused to give any information to
the travelers, and though they were treat
ed all right .is far as could be done then, ■■
there was much mystery made of the at- 1
fair on the part of the employes. It ap
pears that the broken rail stuck up and
was wedged against the axle of the rear
' car. In which was Captain Jones. The car
turned over, taking four others, and over
three lengths of the track came with it.
Three of the dangerously wounded were
left at Winslow. and their condition when
the train left could not be learned.

They Were Sold at the Police Station
i Yesterday
George D. Bowers, the bunco man, has at
last secured his valises, which the police
were holding under an attachment. Some
months ago Bowers flew rather high in
this city, and became indebted to the Van
Nuys hotel for an extensive bill. He
shipped his valises containing clothes and
various personal effects to Leo Strauss,
•'owner," Sacramento, and departed for
that locality himself. The police secured
his valises before they hud been sent north
nnd have held them since. Bowers was.ar
rested and brought back to stand trial on
a charge of beating a hotel bill, hut upon
settling the indebtedness the; complaint
against him was dismissed.
Bowers then applied to Chief Glass for
his valises, but the chief refused to sur
render the articles. Routzahn & Gllkey,
the tailors, had attached them for J52.50,
balance on a Mil of $117 for clothes. Bow
ers said he had arranged to have that bill
settled, but the chief declined to let the
valises go unless he made affidavit that ho
was Leo Strauss. This Bowers declined to
do. Bowers evidently came to some under
standing with the tailors, however, for
yesterday the goods were sold to W. R.
Bacon for $50 on behalf of the tailors, the ir
bill evidently having been settled by Bow
ers. The latter now has his valises with
out making an affidavit.

Swell Function in Preparation for the
Coming Winter—San Franciscans
Will Participate
A novel nnd attructtve entertainment will
be held in Los Angeles during the coming
winter. Tho Horse Show association of
Southern California is rapidly completing
its plans for the tlrst annual exhibition. It
is proposed to make this exhibition a swell
function and to run It upon the same gen
eral lines as the famous horse show of New
York. Already many of the society peopi« In
this city have signed the subscription list
of boxes, which entitles the holders to from
four to six seats In tftch box for the entire
season of four days and two or more per
formances each day.
There will be exhibited all classes of
horses—'trotters, runners, driving horses,
ponies, trick horses, hookneys, cobs and
draught. Besides these special fea
| tures will be introduced. such as
a floral day. polo playing rough
riding, '.he tire drill, coach driving,
hurdle riding, etc. Cups and money prist s
to tho extent of several thousand dollars
will be offered by the association for the
best horses in each class, as well as for the
best equipages and performances of driving
I and riding.
Horses will be entered for competition
from all the adjacent cities and towns, at
well as from Santa Barbara, San Jose nnd
San Francisco. From the latter city many
line roaches and other equipages have al
ready been promised, it being the intention
to discontinue the horse show for this sea
son, at least, in San Francisco. This will
give an opportunity to the society people
and horse owners of that place to have h
change of scene and climate by coming to
Los Angeles to make exhibits, as well as to
display thell skill ut riding and driving.
M. S. Severance, the president of fh. as
sociation, and M. B, Wooster are the orig
inators of the idea of holding the meeting
in this city, and thus far th°y have met
with much BUCCcess and voluntary co-op
eration from the loading citizens.
Fiesta park will probably be selected as
the most desirable site for the exhibition.
Plans are now being drawn for th. I.ok-s
and seating arrangements. In the center
of the park will be the arena, of ellptical
shape and about 200 feet in length by 80
feet ln width, where equine sports may b
Indulged in. Surrounding this Is to bo ft
promenade which separates the boxes and
the arena. Bock of this will be the seats,
over which will be awnings and decora
tions. The offices of the association are to
be in the Byrne, building, whore all infor
mation as to boxes, seats, entry blanks, etc..
will be given.
An Ex-Police Officer and a Deputy
Constable Clash
3. O. Richardson, formerly a police offlcpr.
was arrested yesterday afternoon by De
puty Constable Mugnemi on a charge nf in
terfering with an officer. The trouble was
the outcome of an attempt of Mugnemi *o
replevin some furniture which Mrs. Rich
ardson had partially paid for.
Mrs. Richardson conducts a 'edging
house at 148 West Jefferson street, and pur
chased some furniture from the. Southern
California Furniture company. She stiii
owed ¥24.45. A suit was begun against her
In Justice Morrison's court yesterday and
a writ of replevin issued. Mugnemi went to
serve this document, in company with th.
driver for the furniture company. When
he reached the house Richardson met htm
and said that Mrs. Richardson was not at
home. The officer replied that he was
armed with a legal document and he had
the right to serve the paper. Richardson
demurred ami forced the officer out of th-v
house, claiming that, as Mrs. Richardson
was absent, the writ could not be served.
Mugr.eml then said he would place Richard
son under arrest for interfering with an
Richardson, according to the officer, re
sisted, and they had a tussle on the porch.
The driver took a hand, ln the fracas, and
Mrs. M.arch.ant. a daughter of Richardson,
attacked the driver and gave him a severe
thrashing and scratching. On the other
hand. Richardson claims he did not strug
gle hard and that Mrs. Marchant was
shoved aside by the driver and her arm
badly bruised. Richardson was taken to
the station and released during the evening
on ball. Deputy Constables Mugnemi and
Tom Quinn later returned to complete serv
ing the paper, but Mrs. Richardson paid
the jud-gment and costs, and thus part of
the trouble Is settled.
A. Ohmcyer Says He Would Not Be
A. Ohmeyer, dog trainer nr.ri fancier, was
nrr.sted last evening by Officer Sparks.
Julius yon Haeht, a tamale vendor and dog
fancier, swore to the complaint again?!
Ohmeyer. According to the letter's state
ment, he has been training and running
dogs at tho Agricultural park coursing for
some months past. He has ln his kennel a
dog named Fleetfoot. Two weeks ago,
when the drawings for the roursinlg were
made, Fleeetfoot drew with The Ghost.
Yon Hncht owns Doneaster, and this dog
drew with San.a Ana Boy. Fleetfoot and
Doncaater were easily the best ln thc:r
events. Ohmeyer claims that Julius came
to him and suggested that, as Fleetfoot was
sure to defeat Doneaster in the second ties
and would be a hot favorite, it would be an
excellent idea for Ohmcyer to dope Fleeet
foot and allow Doneaster to win. The own
ers could back Doneaster and thus make
a wad of money. Ohmeyer refused to be
come a party to such a proceeding.
Later Yon Hacht. so Ohmeyer says, tried
to bribe a friend of his to dope Fleetfoot.
On Thursday of last week Ohmeyer
| brought charges against Yon Hacht before
the coursitig club. a,nd last Tuesday the
charges were considered. Subsequently
! both men were Intoxicated In the Orpheum
i Annex saloon. Ohmeyer says he saw Julius
and started for him. He does not remem
ber what he called him or said to him, as
he was drunk. Julius claims OhmeyeT
threatened to kill him.

literature, and with marked success. In

stories. The scone Is laid tn his native
province of Esthonla, a region which Is
probably less known than the central por

with the traditions, poetry and the spirit of
the people and region. It is written with 3
skill In language that is nothing less than
remarkable for a foreigner, not an error of
Judgment or construction being found. The
sketch Is an unpretentious bit of work, but
the way In which the characters are drawn

Into us, cutting off the rear of our car as if
It had been shorn with a razor. Col. Baker
was sitting in the smoking compartment,
with Std Laoy opposite to him. Sid was
nodding, with his head down, when :he
crash came, and he was suddenly fired as if
from a catapult, hi* head striking right Into
the colonel's stomach. Wow! Then there
was trouble. The colonel did not reallg*
what had occurred and h- wanted to make

Manager Fred Truett of the Associated
Press has returned from San Frunelsoo,
looking a little pale, but rejuvenated by
his rest und the quiet time he had there.
Ho was taken out for a drive to the park
while there by Eugene Bert and some other
friends, .and was shown all the new sights.
As he did not want to let them realize that
he was Jay from being out of town for so
long, he paid little attention to the objects
pointed out to him, merely remnrklng as
they passed: "Oh, yes; that all right. I
read all about that In the papers some time
ago." This was done with the loyal Idea
of Impressing the people up there thnt
nothing of any consequence happened any
where that the I,os Angeles folks failed to
lonrn of. Finally the carriage passed the
lodge in tho park. "Say, Fred," said nert.
"there's the new lodge. It wns built to
take the place of the one that was burred,
down last winter." "Of course," replied
Truett. "I remember reading about that
fire a: the time It happened." There was a
derisive roar from his companions nnd they
did not pay for a thing the rest of the day.
It was the same old lodge; there had never
been any fire, and Fred lost hi? reputation
at one fell swoop. To hear this story as It
should be told, ask f.ouls Vetter to recite it.
