BALMY CLIMATE
RESTORES INVALID
JOHN A. SULLIVAN AND WIFE
OF ST. LOUIS AT REDONDO
Social Leaders of the Missouri Me.
tropells Delighted With Winter's
Sojourn In Southern
California
When Mr. and Mrs. John A. Sulli
van, doclal leaders of Bt. Louis, left
their southern home two months ago Jn
search Of health for Mrs. Sullivan,
who had suffered a severe fracture on
her head the early part of the winter,
they came direct to Los Angeles.
The sea breezes were recommended
by the physicians and health was
sought on the beach at Redondo.
On their arrival at the hotel Mr.
Sullivan divided the time between his
charming wife and basking In the sun
among the pretty flowers of which he
roulrt not Seem to tire.
"My dear," he said to Mrs. Sullivan,
"what you require is rest, freedom
from any excitement, and nourishing
food. ITou are yet too 111 to mingle
with the merrymakers and we will
spend the time out In this glorious
sunshine remote from the sound of the
voices of the throng."
This sage advice, Mrs. Sullivan de
clares, was given without the slightest
suggestion of mirth.
It was also given the first day they
arrived. .
The second day found Mr. Sullivan
acquainted with several tourists and
Mrs. Sullivan slightly improved. The
third day the worthy man knew all the
travelers and his wife was still better,
by the fourth Mr. Sullivan was not
only acquainted With all the persons
at the hotel, besides the gardener at
the carnation gardens and the hotel
gardener, but he was the honored
guest In the dining room beside.
From that began /a rbund of gayety
for the Jovial Mr. Sullivan and Mrs.
Sullivan, who came in search of health.
In point %t fact, it Is rumored they
both forgot what they came for unless
It might have been to have a good time
and make everybody around them
happy besides.
"When A boating party was planned,
which meant that the party should
rise at 4 a. m. and be ready to start
a half hour later, Mr. Sullivan was
the first up and the liveliest of the
crowd. A bowling match found him
equally active, the center of attrac
tion, while the ball room, golf course,
daylight excursions seemed to inspire
new enthusiasm with each day's rising
sun.
While taking photographs under the
palms recently the throng hurried Mr.
and Mrs. Sullivan out and with a piece
of mosquito netting, an improvised
bouquet and a white sheet wound
around her shirt waist Bult for a train,
proclaimed her once more a bride,
insisting that they were the gayest,
youngest and most popular couple^ of
them all.
Many regrets will be felt at the
early departure of the Sullivans for
St. Louis, where they will meet their
married daughter. But they will remain
away but a short time for they will
return to Southern California soon.
They .could never feel satisfied again
away from the balmy air and sunshine,
three days of which served to restore
an Invalid's health.
MINISTER STRIKES AT
. VICE IN LOS ANGELES
Urges Christian People to Organize
for Salvation of Amer
ican Cities
The Rev. Sidney Q. Kendall lectured
to a large audience at the Trinity M.
B. church south, corner Ninth and
Grand avenue, last night, his subject
being "The Battle of Armageddon."
Mr. Kendall said: v ''
"Armageddon is the Vmoral conflict
which, in seems likely to
reach Its climax in .the struggle for the
city.
"Reform movements will not be per
manently successful until they have a
religious basis. What is wanted Is the
awakening of the Christian conscience
with regard to j civic duties. In Borne
cities the enemy Is practically Jn pos
session.
"We need a plan of campaign that
shall create enthushtsm and unity
among our friends and diversion and
dismay among our enemies.
"The story of the traffic In girls can
not be matched In Central Africa nor in
central hell. This will arouse the
Christian conscience and unite Chris
tian sentiment more than anything else.
"The victory In Los Angeles has dem
onstrated that there Is a factor avail
able for victory tit which purity leaders
have hitherto taken but little account—
and that factor Is the collective con
science of the entire Christian public."
Mr. Kendall will lecture again to
night, taking for his subject, "The Po
lice and the Social Evil, or Society Be
trayed by Its Defenders."

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING* MARCH at, 1905.
PROMINENT ST. LOUIS COUPLE VISITING CALIFORNIA
MR. AND MRS. JOHN A. SULLIVAN OF BT. LOUIS, WHO HAVE
BEEN SPENDING BEVERAL WEEKS AT REDONDO
CITY HAS NEW
OFFICIAL SEAL
DESIGN SUBMITTED ACCEPTED
BY COUNCIL
Striking Feature Is a Shield Upon
Which V Emblazoned the Four
Flags of the City's ,
' History
According to the rights vested In
them by the new city charter, the city
council yesterday adopted a new offi
cial seal for the city of Los Angeles.
The main feature of the new Beal is
the shield, upon which are emblazoned
in heraldic form four flags Under
NEW SEAL OF LOS ANGELEt!
which Los Angeles has lived and
grown. First the Spanish flag,- then
the Mexican,- the California Republic
and the coat of arms of the United
States.
The citizens of Los Angeles have
rights and a history peculiar to them
selves in the west, for they live in one
of the few cities in the western half of
the country which was founded prior
to the adoption of the Constitution of
the United States. The city was es
tablished in 1781 and has been in exist
ence ever since.
Another peculiarity, according to the
city attorney, is that Los Angeles has
rights which antedate the constitution
and these rights are recognized and re
spected by the laws of California and
the United States.
Surrounding the shield are several
ornamental devices typical of the cli
matic ] conditions and products of the
section of the country of which Los
Angeles is the center.
The English College of Heraldry has
been followed in the design and color-
Ing of the seal.

THIRTY-CENT GAS
IS NOW PROMISED
DEVICE TO MAKE IT FROM
CRUDE OIL
Noted Eastern Inventor Claims That
He Has Found a Solution for
the Great Fuel
Problem
Gas that will burn at SO cents a thou
sand feet!
That is what E. H. Amet, a noted
eastern inventor, who is how in Los
Angeles, promises to do for the people.
Mr. Amet has recently completed a
device which, he claims, •will generate
pure gas from crude oil. He has se
cured a United States patent on the in
vention and' haß applied for foreign
rights.
For many years Mr. Amet has been
engaged in the science of invention,
having been prominently associated
with Thomas A. Edison and . other
famous Inventors In devising means of
improving phonographs and many use
ful electrical inventions.
"With my new Invention," said Mr.
Amet, "crude oil may be turned di
rectly into gas In Isolated places where
it does not pay to use pipe lines.
"My whole secret lies in a novel and
complete generator, which, when ex
plained, is as simple as anything in
the world. The gas generated by this
device may be used on all makes of
gas burners.
Will Be Great Saving
"This new generator will work . a
great saving In operating gas engines.
For Instance, the present distillate en
gine requires distillate of 46 degrees or
over, and with my invention the en
gines may be run from crude oil, the
gas generating direct."
Mr. Amet believes his invention will
in time solve the great fuel problem
which is taxing the minds of the people
all over the country Just now. He says
that as long as crude oil remains cheap
the cost of fuel production by his gen
erator will be reduced to a minimum.
Mr. Amet IB stopping 1 at the Hotel
Redondo, whore he has a regularly
equipped laboratory and has been con
ducting his experiments.' He came to
Southern California in .January to test
the different grades of oil produced
here and apply it to his invention.
One hundred and seven patents are
already recorded in Mr. Amet's name
rxt the national capital.
.When he, secures. his foreign patents
Mr. Amet will make known the exact
nature of his ' newly invented gas
generator.

MERKEL SHOWS
LITTLE CONCERN
SLAYER OF TWO WOMEN ON
TRIAL FOR LIFE
Prosecution Will Insist on the Death
Penalty In the Murder Case
Now Before Superior
Court
With a calm and contented expres
sion on his wrinkled face, Ernest L. C.
Merkel, an aged man from "nowhere
In particular" and "Jack of all trades,"
went on trial yesterday before Judge
Smith In the superior court, .charged
with the murder of. two defenseless
women.
Tho case of John McClure, the old!
miner, who has been sentenced to die
on the gallows, linrdly disposed of, now
comes the trial of Merkel, who is also
charged with the commission of a dou
ble murder.
The information charges the defend*
ant with but one murder, as in the Mc-
Clure case, yet the prosecution intends
to show the facts of the second murder
in further proof of the premeditation
and cold-bloodedness of the act by
which two women met death. '
It Is a significant fact v that Deputy
District Attorney McComas and Deputy
District Attorney Fleming, who prose
cuted McClure, have been selected to
prosecute Merkel, and, as In the Mc-
Clure case, the prosecution will Insist
upon the death penalty.
Attorney W. P. Hyatt was appointed
by the court to defend the prisoner.
Wife's Life Unhappy
Mrs. Merkel, who met death at the
hands of her aged husband, was a
.young and comely woman of 25. Mer
kel, It Is alleged, induced her to come
to this country under promise of mar
riage, and it is asserted by misrepre
sentation. Their married career, how
ever, -was of brief duration. It was al
leged she was compelled to leave him
on account of his cruelty. „.■,:■ ; /
The young woman found employment
as a waitress in the Busy Bee restau
rant, kept by Carl Fox and his wife,
Mrs. Frankie Fox.
Mrs. Merkel and the Fox woman were
friends, and the former went to live
In the Fox home, back of the restau
rant. For some time before the trag
edy Mrs. Merkel was in fear of her life,
and only ventured out of doors in com- 1
pany -with Mrs. Fox. On the evening
of December 2 the two women left
the back door of the restaurant to cross
the yard to their rooms, when Merkel
sprang from a secluded place and fired
the fatal shots.
Second Victim
Merkel's Wife died Instantly and Mer
kel then turned his attention to Mrs.
Fox, who attempted to escape. She
also fell a victim to the enraged man.
Dr. George W. Campbell, who'per
formed the autopsies on the bodies of the
dead women, was the first witness
called to the Stand by the prosecution.
He testified briefly to the course pur
sued by the bullets.
Carl Fox, the husband of the woman
for whose murder Merkel is now on
trial, -was one of the most important
witnesses called by the prosecution.
He testified that his first acquaint
ance with the defendant dated back to
over a year ago, when Merkel called on
him relative to securing a position for
his (Merkel's) wife in the Busy Bee
restaurant.
On the day prior to the tragedy Mer
kel again called on the witness and in
formed him that his wife "was getting
too strong." He also requested Fox not
to furnish his wife with the customary
amount of food.
Wanted Wife's Earnings
From the testimony given by Fox
it appears that Merkel again visited the
restaurant .on the day of the tragedy,
at which time he attempted to force
his. wife to turn over her earnings to
him.
Alvln Grenel, who was employed as
a bartender at the Strasburg saloon,
told the court that Merkel exhibited a
revolver on the day previous to the
tragedy.
The attorney for the defendant did
not disclose his line 'of defense. The
following comprise the Jury: Myron
Bates, John Dlxon, Joshua Dean, A. P.
Griffith, George Gardner, John J. Grif
fin, George A. Harris, E. C. Hlne, T.
M. Neece, T. Thrall, George Taylor,
George W, Walte.

Fire on Echandla Street
A one story frame house at 424
Echandla street was last night par
tially destroyed as the result of a fire
which sprang from unknown causes.
The furniture and other contents of
the house were damaged to the extent
of $300 while the house Itself suffered
about $500 worth. The house is occu
pied by Bert Shaw and his family and
when the blaze broke out those in the
place were asleep. They awoke before
the flames gained much headway how
ever, and escaped . without injury.

Successor
The McKlnley home is soon to have
a change made in Its aboard of direc
tors. Rev. Hugh K. Walker, the presi
dent of the board, has announced his
intention of • resigning because of the
pressure of other work, and an Invita
tion has been tendered to Gail Borden
to accept the vacancy. The directors
were called together for a meeting last
Saturday, but on account of the inabil

The patrons of the home are trying
to secure another cottage to add to the
three already on the grounds. The
home Is crowded at the present time,
and the directors say there are many
applications for admission which are
declined because of lack of accommoda
tions.
The proposed cottage will cost about
$3500, and of this amount the Ladles'

$500 in cash and promises. Mrs. Ar

to accommodate twenty boys.

the city might unite with the street car
company, which is expected to con
