EARTHQUAKE CAUSES PANIC ANGELENO HEIGHTS FEELS A SEVERE SHOCK OFFICE BUILDINGS TREMBLE Residents of the Suburban District Rush From Their Houses as the Ground Quivers Be. neath Them An earthquake of considerable vio lence was felt distinctly in Los An geles yesterday afternoon nt,. 3:55 o'clock. While the shock was slight In the downtown district, on Angeleno Heights the disturbance was of suf ficient, magnitude to cause residents to »ush panic-stricken into the street. The shock wns of several seconds' duration, and although noticeable to v comparatively few people on the street, was experienced with no slight de gree of surprise and alarm by persons ii\ some of the taller office buildings. Weather Forecaster George 13. Franklin in his office on the sixth floor of the Trust building, Spring and Second streets, said thut owing to the lack of apparatus he had' no means of determining the severity of the dis turbance, but he had felt a distinct trembling of the building at the time. In the vicinity of Helen street on Angeleno Heights the earth's trembling seemed to be more pronounced than in any other part of the city. The build ings in this district are principally frame dwelling houses, but In a two story brick structure tho effect was pronounced. The last noticeable tremor of the earth's crust at Los Angeles was ex perienced Christmas day, when the most severe earthquake in the his tory of the city was felt. During the past two weeks seismic disturbances huve been reported in va rious parts of California, and in San " Francisco several of considerable vlo ' lence have been experienced. BANKER MORSE NOT PASSENGER ON LINER Engaged Stateroom but Did Not Board Lucania — Mrs. Gelshenen's Children Sail By Associated Press. NEW YORK, .Jan. 7.— Charles W. Morse, the banker, did not arrive from Europe on the steamer Lucania today. He engaged 11 stateroom on the vessel and it' was expected he would sail on board at Queenstown, but he failed to appear. 1 Assistant District Attorney Garvan today said he placed no credence in the report that Mrs. William Gelchenen was In New York and that she would appear before the grand jury on Mon day. Mr. Garvan said: "I accept the word of her lawyer and her. son that she sailed last Tuesday. We, are satisfied that Mrs. Gelchenen was not a passenger on the Deutsch land today. Mrs. Gelchenen, her daugh ter. Miss Edith English and Miss Dunne, aunt of Miss Gelchenen, were passengers on the Hamburg liner. .."That telegrams, letters and baskets of flowers were sent to the Deutschland for Miss Gelchenen is easily explained by the fact that many of her friends, hearing that she was to sail today, sent those tokens of friendship." Mr. Garvin denied a report that sub poenas have been Issued for Attorneys ■' James M. Back and Samuel Unter meyer for their appearance before the grand jury, and later District Attorney Jerome said that no subpoena had been ■ issued for Charles W. Morse.

TALK OF GRANT FOR SENATORSHIP PROSPECTS ARE NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY IS ON WAY TO SACRAMENTO Rumor That Effort Might Be Made to Throw Flint Vote* to San Diegan After the Flrtt Few Ballots By a Staff Correspondent SACRAMENTO, Jan. 7.— Senatorial gossip is so indefinite thut even tho "wise" politicians of all factions have discontinued their services as profes sional mathematicians and have re signed themselves to the Inevitable. As each day brings a new candidate into the field, so does the gossip Increase and vary the fact that the aspirants and their campaign managers nre now In San Francisco trying to square mat ters with the "organization." "Watch that man Grant" was the password today. "He's on hla way from the eiißt to Sacramento and will ur rive Sunday." So far there have been no evidence of a Grant boom, although it is known that he is In a receptive mood. Tho San Diego delegation does not place much in his prospective candidacy, but say if things begin to look up for him they will flock to his support. It was rumored about the different political headquarters today that an effort will be made to throw the Flint votes to Grunt if the former aspirant finds he cannot win after the first few ballots. This, however, is not credited, as Flint is an "organization" man, and if it Is found they cannot be success ful Oxnard, Flsk, Knight or some other "organization" mun will proba bly be the choice. The "organization" holds full sway In the legislature, al though there are those among the law makers who scorn the idea of corpo rate dictation. Such legislators are to be found in the Bard column. All sorts of rumors are afloat to the effect .that the "sack" will be opened after the first ballot is taken on the senatorial question. The quiet but san guine role assumed by Oxnard has led to .the belief that he will be the first to dish out the "needful" wherewith. It Is also predicted that Fisk and Flint will "come through" at the appointed time if they have not already done so. A senatorial deadlock in a California legislature is said to be like a coveted prize in a grab bag. Bard Faithful to Trust Senator Bard will not be here Mon day, as was expected. Affairs at the national capital demand his presence, so that he may not-reach Sacramento before Thursday. Following is the text of a telegram received by his cam paign managers from the senator to night: "I am anxious to do everything pos sible to co-operate with my suppor ters, but statehood affairs, which in terests the whole country, California especially, i.nd my responsibility in leading the opposition forbids deser tion when victory seems near." Preparing for Exercises Advantage is being taken of the ad journment of the legislature to decorate the assembly chamber for the exercises of the electoral college next Monday afternoon. A profusion of American and California Bear flags are being effectively used about the speaker's desk and the pillars and balcony railing. The local legislative population was further decreased this afternoon through the departure for San Fran cisco of more members of both houses. JOHN T. PARKERSON. MAKES PLEA FOR PRESCOTT Personal Friend of Speaker Resents Criticism "Gen. Frank C. Prescott told me em phatically before the Republican con vention thut he would pledge himself tc no senatorial candidate, and if he went to the legislature It must be with the understanding that he should act as he thought best for the interests of Southern California and his constitu ents," said Holdridge 6. Collins, a close friend of the speaker of the as sembly yesterday, in commenting upon the attacks of 111 faith which have been made upon Mr. Prescott. "He further Bald he had been ap proached by candidates who had asked him to give assurances of support in case of his election to the legislature. To all advances of this kind he 'had eald he would not under any circum stances accept the nomination If that nomination was to come to him in re turn for pledges on his part." PRESIDENT ENTERTAINS PEER Japanese Statesman Makes Call at White House By Associated Proas. WASHINGTON. Jan. 7.— Baron Ken taro Kentano, a member of the houße of peers of Toklo, was a late caller at the White House tonight and remained with the president for over an hour.

STATEHOOD BILL SENATE BUFFER WILL BE USED TO STAVE OFF VARIOUS MEASURES - MANY VESSELS GO ASHORE Senator Beveridge's Efforts to Induce Opposition to Agree to Date for Vote I* Without Success Special to Tim Herald. WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.— There seems no longer any doubt the state hood bill Is once more slated to play ita old role of buffer for the session with no prospect of passage unless in a greatly modified form. Senator Bev eridge, who is in charge of the bill, busied himself lost night and today trying to Induce the opposition to agree to r date for a vote but without suc cess. He has had several conferences with Senator Bailey of Texas, leader of the Democratic opposition, with the result that the Texas senator has made a tentative offer to accept the bill If it is modified so as to admit New Mexi co as a separate state and leave Ari ze no. Indefinite In its present territorial status. Senator Ball-dy is willing that Okla hema and Indian Territory should be tied together as one state, but wants certain changes In the provisions re lating to them. This offer Senator Bev erldge has rejected. He. insists that the bill must stand or fall in sub stantially its present form. There seems to be no doubt that the bill will fall of passage in any form. Even senators who are ostensibly in favor of it privately tell th-sir friends It has no show and practically admit It is being used as a buffer to stave off. consideration of, the pure food bill and other measures the senate leaders don't want to deal with at this session. EXPERTS DIFFER AS TO AUTHOR BUTLER-REAVIS CASE NOT YET - ENDED Prof. Ames Declares That Miss Butler Wrote the Missives, While Rev. Mr. Hough Denies the Allegation More than one hundred schoolma'ms crowded into the rooms of the county board of education yesterday to hear Prof. D. L. Ames of San Francisco, said to be the most noted expert on handwriting in the world, testify in connection with the charges preferred by Miss Cora A. Reavls, a teacher in the Union avenue school, against Miss Isolda Butler, who also teaches in the same building. The attorneys for Miss Butler again renewed their objection to the taking of testimony on the ground that the county board was without jurisdiction to hear the charges, but the objection was promptly overruled and Attorney Willis opened the case ou behalf of Miss Reavis. He. said he Intended to show that the letters received by Miss Butler and subsequently made public were not written either by Miss Cora Reavis or her sister, but by Miss Butler herself, who penned them In a disguised hand for the purpose of making trouble. At this juncture the attorneys for the defense^ admitted that neither of the Misses Reavis had penned the letters, whereupon Miss Reavis' attorney asked If the defense would also admit that Miss Butler was the author. This question was denied and Prof. Ames was called ns.the first witness. Prof. Ames testified at great length and finally Insisted that the letters were undoubtedly In the hand\yriting of Miss Butler. On cross-examination Prof. Ames re fused to alter' any material point In his testimony and he was excused. Rev. George A. Hough of San Fran cisco, formerly a teacher of penman ship in this city and a recognized hand writing expert, testified In behalf of Miss Butler, and his testimony was di rectly opposite to that given by Prof. Ames. Further hearing In the case was con tinued until January 21, at which time the case will probably be disposed of. .« ■ > RAILROADS FIGHT SCALPERS Large Systems Ask for Permanent In.

DENVEU, Jan. 7.— Alva Adams was tonight declared by the legislature to be the duly elected governor of Colo redo. ' The returns showed Adams, 123,078; Peabody, 113,304. Plurality lor Adams, 9,774. A cheer greeted the announcement ol the election when made by Lieutenant (governor Haggott. The Republican candidates to all the ether state offices were declared elect ed. Under the terms of the agreement leached today by the various factions In the legislature, no notice of contest can bo filed by Governor Peabody until after the Inauguration of Mr. Adams which is set for 10 o'clock Tuesday morning. It hns not yet been definitely deckled by Governor Peabody whether or not he will make a contest. Will Declare Adams Governor When the legislature convened this morning Representative William Grif fith of Cripple Creek asked for a re cess until 4 o'clock In the afternoon, giving as his reason for the request that "the white winged dove of peace Is about to light on the dome of the cspltol." It was nine long hours before the dove came down and muny and devious had been her flights before she lit. It was a day given over to secret cau cuses, to conferences, to propositions and counter propositions. It was final ly agreed at 5 o'clock in the afternoon that the vote should be canvassed, that Alva Adams should be declared gov ernor and that no contest should be made for any office until after his inauguration at 10 o'clock next Tues day morning. Throughout the entire struggle for the. governship the chief aim of both Democrats and Republicans has been to secure the appointment of the .two new judges to the supreme court. The question of whether Peabody or Adams sat in the governor's office was a sec ondary matter. Wolcott Force Victorious . The Wolcott Republicans were insist ent in their demand. that they be rec ognized in the appointment of the judges and it was finally agreed that the appointees Bhould be George W. Ealley of. Fort Collins and V. M. God dard. of Denver. The Wolcott men made a "strong fight for Judge M. E. Lewis of Colorado Springs, whom they preferred to Goddard, but they finally gave way. When the republican leaders called upon Governor Peabody to Inform him of the conclusions they had reached and to tell him that his only hope of a second term lay through a contest in the republican legislature they were met by a wrathful and indignant man. He refused to accede to their wishes and for four hours his friends labored with him. It was only the personal pleadings of some of his closest friends that finally induced him to agree tJ the plan proposed, and to send the names of Bailey and Goddard to the senate for confirmation. Differences Are Adjusted The Peabody men would not give way until the supreme court this afternooa refused to declare legal the proceedings of yesterday. It would not declare them illegal, simply declining to pass on the matter at all. At 7 o'clock all things were settled even to the fact that Lieutenant Governor Haggott Bhould preside over the joint session, except while the canvass wtia in pro gress when he would give way to Speaker Dlckson. The senators filed into the house with Lieutenant Governor Haggott leading. The Iteuteant governor mounted the speaker's rostrum, where Speaker Dick son was awaiting him. The men eye'l each other for a second and then Hag gott,. with a laugh, extended his hand and it was cordially grasped. The speaker stepped back and the lieutenant governor called the session to order. He announced the purpose of the Joint session to be the canvassing of the votu and then gave way to the speaker. Representative Griffith moved a re consideration of the action taken yes terday, the resolution creating the com mittee of fifteen, was laid on the table and that body passed out of existence. The canvass of the vote then com menced and continued until midnight. Scene in Court Room The election commissioners of Den ver late last night refused to turn over to the legislative^ committee of fifteen appointed, yesterday any of the ballot boxes in their possession. This morning Attorney John M. Wal dron, representing the committee,' ap plied to the supreme court for an order on the commissioners directing them to surrender to the committee certuin bal lot boxes. Senator. T. M.

TROOPS ENTER FORTRESS TODAY TO RELIEVE VOLUNTEERS AT PORT ARTHUR INCENDIARY FIRES REPORTED Gen. Nogl and Gen. Stoessel Meet and Discuss Campaign and Make Plans for Future Action My Associated Press. HEADQUARTERS OF THE THIRD JAPANESE ARMY IN FRONT OF PORT ARTHUR, via Tien Tsln, Jan. 6. —The meeting of Gen. Nogl and Gen. Stoessel today was as undramatlc as the' conclusion of the siege. It had previously been arranged to take place at noon In the single undamaged house of the village of Shulshl. This house was a miserable hovel called Plum Tree cottage. Through a misunderstanding Gen. Stoessel rode out of Port Arthur at 10 o'clock accompanied by Col. Reiss and two staff officers, to the Japanese lines, and missed. the Japanese officer dele gated to escort him to the meeting place. The general rode there without an escort and was receiyed by a junior officer who happened to be on the spot. The, latter telephoned to Nogl, who hurried his departure from headquart ers and arrived at 11 o'clock, accom panied by Maj. Gen. Ijlchl, his chief of staff, and Cols. Yasuhara, Matudlara and Watanabe, staff officers, and M. Kawskarln, secretary of the foreign office at Toklo. Permitted to Keep Swords When Nogi, looking careworn, entered the compound of the cottage the two generals cordially shook hands and Nogi, through an Interpreter, expressed his pleasure at meeting a general who had fought so bravely and gallantly for his emperor and country. Gen. Stoessel thanked Gen. Nogl for the pleasure of meeting there the hero of the victorious army. Gen. Nogi explained that he had re ceived a message from his emperor ask • ing, that the greatest consideration oe shown to Gen. Stoessel and his officers In appreciation of their splendid loyalty to their emperor and country. Because of that wish, he added, the Russian officers would be allowed to wear their swords. Gen. Stoessel expressed his gratitude to the Japanese emperor for thus sav ing the honor of his (Stoessel's) family, and said his descendants would appre ciate the thoughtful kindness of the emperor of Japan. Praises Army's Bravery The general also expressed the grati tude of hl3 officers and thanked Nogl for sending the message from Stoessel to Emperor Nicholas and transmitting his majesty's reply, which read: . "I allow each officer to profit by the reserved privilege to return to Russia under the obligation not to take further part in the present war or share in the destinies of their men. "I thank you and the brave men of the garrison for the gallant defense." Both generals then mutually praised each other and their officers for their bravery. The conversation afterward turned on the explosion of the mine at Sung shu mountain fort. Gen. Stoessel said the entire garrison of the fort was killed or made prisoners. The Russian commander greatly praised the Japanese artillery practice, especially the concentrated fire instan taneous with the explosion of the Sungshu mine. Pi -J): ■■■■':■ Talk of Nogi's Sons The gallant deeds of the Japanese infantry, Gen. Stoessel added, spoke for themselves. It was impossible to exaggerate their good qualities. The skillful work of the engineers had also won his Admiration. Continuing, Gen. Stoessel said he had heard that Gen. Nogl had lost both his sons and praised his loyalty In thus sacrificing his sons who had died fight ing for their emperor and country. Gen. Nogi smiled and replied: "One of my sons gave his life at Nanshan and the other at 203 Meter hill. Both of these positions were of the greatest Importance to the Japa nese army. I am glad that the sac rifice of my sons' lives had been in the capture of such important positions, as I l'eel the sacrifices were not made In vain. Their lives were nothing com pared to the objects sought." Gen. Stoessel then asked permission td present his charger to Gen. Nogi as a token of his appreciation and ad miration. Accepts Horse for Army Gen. Nogl expressed his thanks for the Russlun generul's kindness, but said he could not personally accept tha horse, but udded that he would accept it for the army, since he considered thut the Russian horses were the prop erty of Japan and he felt he could not make Gen. Btoessel's charger his pri vate property. ' Gen. Nogl also promised that when the horse was handed over to him to Bee that it will be treated with the greatest kindness out of respect for the brave Russian general. Thereupon Gen. Stoeusel assured Gen. Nogl that tie ad (Coutlnued ou Vugo Xwv.) PRICE: DAILY, BY CARRIER, 65 CTS.

STANDARD OIL MAGNATES WAR ROCKEFELLER WOULD FORCE LOOMIS TO RESIGN Startling Revelations in the Bank ruptcy Case Against Brokerage Firm of Munroe & Munroe Special to The Herald. NEW YORK, Jan. 7.— There is war In the camp of the Standard Oil company because of revelations In the bank ruptcy case against the "laundry brokerage" firm of Munroe & Munroe, which show that Vice President Archi bald G.
