"Women of Shakespeare," by Mrs.
Charles Adams
Mrs. Charles Kendall Adams, wife of Pro
fessor Adams, president of the Wisconsin
State university, who is spending the winter
in IiOS Angeles, yesterday gave a most in
teresting and scholarly address before the
Friday Morning club to a large audience of
the members on "The Women of Shakes
peare." The speaker's familiarity with her
subject and long quotations from the differ
ent dramas given without book, paper or
notes, to illustrate her points, indicated
that the subject had been given long re
search and study. Her comments on the
various characters were keenly analytical,
and her conclusions broad nnd generous,
though in some instances differeing from
other students.
The speaker took up the various charac
ters as types of womanhood; Rosalind por
traying joyousness; Portia and Celia the
value of friendship; Catherine, "the queen
of earthly queens," who, if her character is
simply analyzed, was but a good woman.
The description of Cleopatra going down
the river to meet Antony, the speaker con
siders one of the finest things in Shakes
peare, and the whole play teaches that
though sin may be disguised in superb art
there is no escaping its deformity nnd its
.consequences. The speaker confessed that
she was unable to determine the queery
so often put, "Did Shakespeare intend to
be a great moral teacher?" but the fact re
mains that he was.
In "Macbeth" there are traces of haste
which intensifies its power, the writer
catching its dramatic, not its historic, force.
Two great characters dominate the play,
and neither can be successfully acted. Mrs.
Siddons, after forty years spent in study
and on the stuge, confessed herself unable
to portray Lady Macbeth. The speaker
held her responsible for her husband's first
plunge into ruin, and she is a type of the
over-ambitious woman: a woman quick to
think, quick to act. She wns what many
have been from the beginning, and will be
to the end. Dcsdemonn was next taken
up, and side lights from a new point of
view thrown upon her character by the
speaker's keen perception.
Rivalry in the Operation of Limited
The rivalry between the Santa Fe nnd the
{southern Pacific company in the race for
patronage of the limited trains operated
from the east to this city by both companies
kas become very intense. The Santa Fe
train which arrived yesterday brought the
following passengers. B. F. Spencer, Chi
cago, 111.; H. C. Holmes, Boston, Mass.; E.
•0. Danforth and wife, Toledo, O.; M. B. St.
Cyr, Boston; W. B. Gallagher, Colorado

wife, Colorado Springs, Colo.; H. Skongcn
berg, Ella Kroe»ohell, Bertha Arond, Mrs.
E. Kroeschcll, Chicago; A. R. Orecne, Mad
ison, Wis; Homer Laughlin, Los Angelea.
The Santa Fe company is receiving about
four new engines a month.

Riversido office of the Santa Fe, has been
transferred to this city in the freight office.
•T. Baumann, former ticket agent at River
side, takes lhe place vacated by Mr. Strait
and is in turn succeeded by T. West.
The Southern Pacific has temporarily re
placed the oil burning apparatus in some of
its locomotives by the coal burning grates.
This is on account of a shortage in oil sup
ply. The Santa Fe is largely supplied from
its own wells.

Santa Fe Lape is in the city from San Ber
Superintendent Beainer of the Santa Fe,
with headquarters at San Bernardino, is
in the city for a day or so.
Santa Fe employes in the general offices
here are investing largely in the securities
of that system, us they have had a boom
recently. The stock of the company has
long had only a nominal value in the stock
market' but is now advancing so as to be
come an interesting factor to speculators.

The Company Said to Be Oppose
ing Bulla's Aspirations
A Case Where San Pedro and Other Interests of This City
Are Much Concerned —Mr. Bulla's Idea
of the Situation
• Now that tho Republicans have elected their governor, they are beginning to •
• look anxiously at the question of a United States senator from this part of the •
• state, and seem to realize that they have a fight which makes imperiled many of •
• their fondest interests and hopes. The county members of the legislature are *
• pledged for Mr. J?ulla, and there is no question but what they will stand by him •
• as long as he has any show, and it is thought that he has more than a good fight- •
• ing chance. •
• San Diego is, of course, for Grant, and it is said that he has also captured the •
• Orange county delegates. Pic has also on his side all of the inductive of the •
• Santa Fe. •
• This will surprise many people, but it comes from such a source! that it can •
• hardly be questioned, though the authority of the statement cannot be given. •
• It is from a man who knows every move being made, and can be accepted as cor- •
• rect, despite any contradictions that may be made. The Santa Fe company •
• have not heretofore taken much part in politics, but they have had the benefit of •
• coaching from "Uncle," and met with a defeat in their first effort, the working •
• for George Arnold during the past campaign. •
• The most industrious Arnold men were from the general offices of the company •
• here, and they were ably seconded by the Arcade depot push. But that is a •
• tale that has been told. •
• Why the company is for Grant is because they have decided apparently that •
• ocean commerce must be centralized into Sun Diego. They have established a •
• Pacific steamship line there, and have recently put much money into prepara- •
• tions, particularly in wharfs and terminal facilities. Anything that would hurt •
• San Pedro will be pie for them, and likewise for the Southern Pacific. "Uncle" •
• has been quoted as saying that he would prefer to have anything happen, even •
• at tbe cost of business, that would defeat the men who are fighting him on the •
• Santa Monica harbor matter. . •
• Mr. Bulla was seen last evening, and talked as follows about his fight: "I •
• am in the fight for the scnatorship, and will stay there till lam elected or de- •
• feated. I believe that I have much more than a good fighting chance, but a •
• contest of this kind is something that no one can feel certain about until it is •
• completed. I have no reason at all to be discouraged, and from what Ido •
• know feel quite comfortable about tbe outcome. I have all of tne county dele- •
• gates under instructions from their convention, and I think as well from per- •
• sonal preference." •
• So, then, the question resolves itself down to the fact that the north will have •
• the controlling voice in the matter, and Mr. Bulla's chances are dependent on •
• whether he can find enough support there, among those who are opposed to •
• General Michael Henri De Young and Mr. Knight, and General Barnes, and •
• whether he can overcome the railway lobby which will support Grant from the •
• Santa Fe, and possibly the Southern Pacific. This does not look very encour- •
• aging for him, but it is not so bad as it appears on "its face, for he has been at •
• work for a year or more past, and has won support from many regions that his •
• opponents do not think have been approached. He has no money, but Senator •
• White found himself in the same position, and he has the entire support of his •
• community, which Senator White also had. •
• General De Young will not get any comfort from this part of Southern Cali- •
• fornia. General Barnes might, if the Bulla boom bursted. Mr. Knight has few •
•' friends here, and it is probable that a dark horse would take the vote from here •
• in case Mr. Bulla was overcome. The light will be a hard one, and the new ele- •
• ment of the Santa Fe's sack, in addition to "Uncle's," will add to the complica- •
• tions that are likely to ensue. •
Application for a New Trial Has Been
Filed on Information Received
From California
SAN BERNARDINO, Nov. 11.—A long
communication has been received from
Judge Frederick C. Taylor, who committed
Mrs. Winslow of llighuand to the asylum
at Stamford, Connecticut. He states that
Mr. Winslow at first tried to avoid the
forms ol law and to place his wife quietly in
the asylum, 4>ut found the law would allow
her to be kept there only forty-eight hours.
He then came to Judge Taylor, after con
■siilling Mrs. Winglow's stepmother, and
filed tbe usual petition, alleging her to be
insane and asking for her commitment to an
asylum for the Insane. She did not appear
in court and the hearing was continued at
tbe sanitarium of Dr. McFarlnnd, under
the direction of two Stamford physicians,
Dr. Bohainan and Dr. Van Fleet, selected
by the judge. Mrs. Winslow stated that her
relatives were entirely without knowledge
of the proceedings and the case was post
poned three weeks. The judge himself
wrote to five of them whose nnmes she gave
him. In response to these letters. Mrs. O.
11. Woodward, a sister of Mrs. Winslow,
from Canton, Ohio, came on and also Dr.
Miner, cousin, and his sister, and he brought
Dr. Downes of Hartford, Conn., a specialist
in insanity. None of these, however, ap
peared at the hearing, nor did any witnesses
of her sanity appear, but the two physicians
appointed by the court testified at length
that Mrs. Winslow was insane and a proper
subject for commitment to an asylum. Mr.
Winslow was the only other one present.
His first petition was filed August 15th and
the commitment made September 10th. Ac
cording to the laws of Connecticut the writ
of habeas corpus is alway available to re
open such a case, nnd any relative or friend
can at any time petition the court for release
on the ground that the insanity no longer
exists. An appeal can be taken to the su
perior court at any time within one month
after the commitment. Dr. Miner has taken
such an appeal and the case will be tried over
asain on information received from Califor
nia. There is no distinction between Dr.
McFarland's "sanitarium" and an insane
asylum, except in name. -His place has the
appearance of a farm more than a public
asylum. Mr. Winslow is with his wife and
her friends are allowed to see her at all con
venient hours.
The resignation of Rev. A. J. Frost as pas
tor of the Baptist church bus been accepted

south of the lands of L. Zimmcr.
The Redlands Water company has filed a
complaint demanding the 100 inches of watei
due it from the Bear Valley Land and Water

New City Park at Vernon
To tbe Editor oi the Eos Angeles Herald:
Some time ngo, at an election, the sum of
$10,000 was voted by the citizens of Los
Angeles for the purchase and improvement
of a tract of land for a park for a district
limited north by Jefferson street, south by
Slauson avenue, cast by Alameda street and
west by Main street.
A petition to the city council is now ex
tensively circulated and signed, asking the
council to purchase a piece of 9',i acres of
E. F. Kysor, bounded east by Central av
enue, west by Park avenue, north by Forty
eighth street and south by Fiftieth street—
a piece of land about twice the size of Cen
tral park, located at Sixth and Olive streets.
This piece of land was intended for a purk
and improved for such fifteen years ago, and
a great many people bought homes around
it and improved the same, with the expec
tation that this piece of land would always
remain a public park. On it is located an
avenue of grand old pepper trees, and grow
ing on the tract are immense umbrella trees,
palms and other ornamental trees, which it
takes fifteen years to grow to the present
The tract has a frontage of about COO feet
on Central avenue, the main thoroughfare
of the southern portion of the city of Los
Angeles, en which is being operated an| elec
tric railroad giving excellent service and
affording easy access to the park. There is
a deep well on this piece of ground, fur
nishing an inexhaustible supply of water,
nnd the soil is very rich, as is proved by the
wonderful growth of trees. The sum of
$10,000 is sufficient not only to pay in full
lor the land, but also to immediately make
such improvements on it as are necessary
in a city park.
The growth of the population along Cen
tral avenue during the last live years has
been very great, probably greater than in
any other portion of Los Angeles city; and
'• there is a population located along the
northern portion, of Central avenue which
will be especially and particularly beneiited
by a park located on the site now proposed.
It is essential for a city park to be located
directly on a street car line so that families
' may reach it direct without transferring ii
possible, and without having to walk from
the cars to the park; and this piece of land
'seems to be admirably suited for the pur
pose of a park. W.
Dangers of the Bicycle
To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald:
While protests arc!in the air for the abate
ment of nuisances, cannot something be
done in behalf ol! thd honest pedestrian?
Against collision with vehicle and street
car we pedestrians are comparatively safe;
but who eau account for the vagaries in the
mind of a reckless bicyclist?
About a month ago v young girl and a boy
of 10 were run into by a cyclist. Although
it was nearly dark he carried no light nor
did he ring a bell.
The little boy, Howard Bentley of
1327 South Hill street, wus knocked insensi
ble, his head bitting the Santa Monica car
rails. The festive rider never halted. As
the big car was rapidly coming on the boy
would have been crushed to death if it had
not been for the desperate struggle of tbe
young girl, who) at first was nearly paralyzed
with fear. Two men carried the boy home,
where he lay unconscious for hours. He is
still out of school, with a prospect of six
months' vacation before him.
This is the closest call that I personally
know of, but other collisions have come to
my knowledge without my asking for infor
I know places where little girls are jostled
on the sidewalks and sometimes knocked
over, because in the scramble they can't all
get out of the way.
A lady told me not long ago she saw a
bicycle sweeping down on her and jumped
aside, only to find the rider dodging that
way. She tried the opposite direction and
found him there also. Thrusting her para
sol into the wheel the rider was forced to
dismount. Whereupon he showed consid
erable temper. The lady told him as it
seemed a question of herself or her parasol
she preferred to sacrifice the latter.
I confess whenever I cross a street and
see a bicycle coming near I feel the inde
cision of little Jenny Wren's father creeping
over me. Poor soul! Frequent journeys
after "three pen'y worth o' rum" had well
nigh destroyed his brain. Still, the instinct
of self-preservation was strong within him.
I often wonder what he would do in these
days of the bicycle. JOSIE E. COOK.
Hit With a Hammer
Thomas J. McDonald was arrested yes
terday on a warrant charging him with as
sault with a deadly weapon. He was ar
raigned before Justice Owens and released
under §500 bonds. Andrew J. Springer
swore to the complaint. Springer is n hose
man and McDonald the captain of chemical
engine No. 4 on Pico Heights. The men
got into a fight Wednesday and Springer
claims that McDonald, struck him on the
skull behind the left ear with a hammer. In
any event, Springer was hit by some one,
for he was given medical attendance at the
receiving hospital. Springer claims that
McDonald "has it in" for him and took the
first opportunity of injuring him.
A Soldier's Sensations
"It was the big shell and shrapnel," said
a soldier from Cuba, "that made us hug the
ground, but it was the little Mauser bullets
that killed our men." It is the same in
every day life. People shiver with panic
at the mention of smallpox or yellow fever,
but it is the little disorders of the stom
ach that really do the most killing. The
best medicine for the stomach is Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters. It cures indigestion
and dyspepsia. It is Just as good for
women as for men. For a run-down, de
bilitated condition nothing is so good or so
sure to cure. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
is an old-time remedy. It has stood tho
test for years, and its popularity increases
day by day.

A Prominent Citizen's Death
LONG BEACH, Nov. 11.-Elmer Bacon,
60 years 1 of age, while out riding with his
wife this morning, complained of severe
pains in the region of his heart, and, hurry
ing home, he expired almost immediately
afterward. Mr. Bacon was one of the sub

respect and confidence of all who knew him.
His sudden death causes a shock to the en
tire community.
The deceased came here with his wife and
daughter between three and four years ago
from Streator, 111., and, investing in prop
erty, he decided on making this place bis
future home. Mr. Bacon was a prominent
member of the Christian church, contribut

The Wife of Hancock's Former Pal Is Anxious—The Accused Murderer Pre
tends That His Former Mistress Was the Leader
'• SANTA ANA, Nov. 11. —The confession of the alleged murderer, Hancock, •
• yesterday, that he had been the head of a band of thiCVes Who operated in four •
• of the counties of Southern California a few years ago, has brought him several •
• interested callers today. One of them was a Mrs. Carter, who is supposed to be •
• - the wife of one of the men named by Hancock as his accomplices in burglaries. •
• The woman appeared unnerved, and when her request to sec Hancock was •
• refused she became quite agitated. She subsequently inquired who was Han- •
• cock's attorney. This woman came here three years ago from the east, claiming •
• to be the wife of R. Teel, at Newport Beach, who was about to marry a re- •
• spectable young lady. Her story, while denied by Teel, broke off the match. •
• The woman remained here, finally marrying a hobo named Carter, whom the •
• officers are now wanting. a
• Charles Knox, whom Hancock also implicated in his burglarious operations, •
• was today arrested at Fullerton and brought to the county jail this afternoon •
• by Constable Prendergrast. Mrs. Gross and Carter are both expected here to- •
• morrow. They will be placed in different portions of the jail, apart from Han- •
• cock. c
• Hancock is anxious to be tried, but also wants his accomplices in crime to be •
• punished. He lays his wrong-doing on the woman, Mrs. Gross, his former •
• mistress, who, he says, planned all robberies committed by the firm. Knox c
• refuses to make any statement whatever since his arrest. He has been working •
• for some time at the oil wells near Fullerton. c
The Favorite Hostelry In Anfe-Bellum Days—Often Patronized by

From the TrUCounty Scribe, Jlymoulh, lU.
Mr. and Mrs. Campbell Thompson run the 11
historic Cuyler House ut Plymouth, 111., a boa- '
telry whsre Abraham Lincoln often slept, '
where " Dick" Yates, Lyman Trumbell and ,
Richard Oglesby bought refreshments for the ,
inner man in ante-bellum days, and from tbe j
veranda ot which Stephen A. Douglas de- <
livered one of his great speeches.
This article has not so much to do, how- '
ever, with this historic hotel, as it has with ,
tho landlord's thirteen-year-old laughing, ;
bright-eyed, rosy-checked daughter Ollie. i
As one sees her to-day, the picture of per
fect health, it is hard to believe that nearly
nine of tho thirteen years of her life were spent
on the bed of invalidism, that for months sho
lever walked, and for years suffered the pain,
aisery and distress of inflammatory rheuma
18m in its worst form.
Able physicians were employed but no
permanent Denefit resulted.
Mrs. Thompson heard of a wonderful cure
which had been effected by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Palo People, and wus influ
enced by it to purchase some of the pills for
her daughter.
Before she had taken half a box, there was
marked improvement in her condition; when
lhe had taken two boxes she was completely
restored to health. TS-day, there is not a
healthier child than Ollie Thompson.
The case came to the attention of tho editor
of the Tri-Cuu-nty Sarib'., and a reporter was
detailed to learn tho story of this remarkable
cure from Mrs. Thompson's own lips. She
said: t
"Ollie was a hearty, well-developed child
from the time she was born until she was
throe years old. In ISB7 she was taken down
with inflammatory rheumatism. For nine
years she was never entirely free from the dis
ease, and ranch of the tMnc was in an alarm
ing condition. At tirces, she could not walk,
and her spine was drawn out of shf ,c so that
Luru, who was married last summer while
with her parents visiting in Illinois, re
mained in that state with her husband.
Francis Dolle was discharged by Justice
Morrison yesterday of the offense of petty
larceny. Dolle was tried last week for
the alleged theft of an overcoat from "Dr."
Lewis Paint. Le Brim de Surville claimed
that be learned Dolle had stolen the coat
several weeks after Paint missed it, but be
did not go to Paint until four months later
to tell him of his suspicions. The prosecu
tion got out a search warrant and discov
ered the coat in the possession of Dolle.
The latter claimed, though, that he had
.purchased it from De Surville. It was
proved that Dolle had been in a livery
stable about the time the coat was taken
from that place, but the prosecution failed
to connect Dolle with the disappearance of
the garment.
Detective Silvey of the San Francisco po
lice department arrived yesterday to take
Perry 1). Reed, alias Fred Smith, north for
examination on the charge of forgery.
Reed was employed as a bell boy in the
Lane hospital, San Francisco, and he is
accused of stealing, on October 22, a draft
for $50 from Mrs. W. V. Brady of Salinas,
who was a patient at the hospital. The
draft was from the Salinas City bunk, and
was made payable to her, on the First Na
tional bank of San Francisco. The paper
was stolen from a table in her room while
she slept. Detectives discovered that Reed
had cashed the draft at the City of Paris
store, where he made a purchase. The
draft bore the forged signature of Mrs.
At the regular meeting of the board of
trade, held yesterday afternoon, resolutions
of respect to the late George H. Bonebrake,
who Was at one time president of the or
ganization, and to the late W. J. Broderick,

A communication was received from the
Philadelphia museums, stating that Presi
dent P. M. Daniel and Vice President J. J.
Bergin had been confirmed 'by the
board of trustees as members of
the advisory board. The following
new ■ members were elected: Backer

Fred Tuttle, a young man, was before
Justice Owens yesterday on a charge of as
sault to commit robbery. Jasper Moore,
an old man residing near Echo Park, claimed
that Tuttle and another man jumped upon
him and tried to rob him while he was in
his back yard the night of October Bth.
Moore was able to fight the men away.
Tuttle denied that lie had been near
Moore's place, and proved by several wit
nesses that he had been in various saloons,
or some Los Angeles street joints, at the
time he was charged with attacking Moore.
The complaint wus dismissed and the pris
oner discharged.
There is honesty among sailors. Several
days ago a man named Johnson wus before
Justice Owens bl a charge of drunkenness,
and found guilty. The prisoner pleaded
not to be imprisoned, as be would lose his
ship, and his accumulated wages as the
result. He promised to send his fine to
the clerk if he was but allowed to return to
San Pedro- lie was lined $3 and given his
liberty. Clerk Kinsey was very much sur
prised yesterday to receive a letter from
Johnson enclosing the line.

"Dr. Grigran, of Augusta, was the first
doctor who had her case. He doctored her
through two serious times of tbe disease, and
finally told us he could not cure h»r. We
doctored her most all tbe time, but when she
was ten years old she had an unusually severe
attack, and we called in Dr. Kreider, of Prai.

tried hard to cure her but finally gave it up.
He said, ' I can do nothing further, tbe case le
