Difficulties Attendant Upon Launch.
Ing Are Finally Overcome and
City Rejoices at Great Ban.
i Itary Improvement

trary to tho belief that the outfall
newer which the city Ima been con
structing could be launched within
thirty minutes, the force of men em
ployed in the work labored for nearly
twelve hours.
The newer Is a unique structure,
planned and built under the super
vision of Thomas Nixon, a well known
contractor of this city. It 1« 600 feet
in length, with a weight of 131 tons.
The pipe proper is made of planking
and lo dovetailed In a mnnner which
makes It water tight. The Joints are
tarred and painted with zinc, which
will withstand the salt water. Around
the outside are placed railroad rails,
which »ire strung on n girder, allowing
fifteen rails to form the circle about
the pipe. Between the Ts formed by
the rails cement has been packed and
the mass thus forms a non-corrosive
The contract called for $6000 for the
construction and launching, but the
work has been attended by so many
difficulties that $10,000 will barely cover
the expense.
In the launching was employed a
series of sixteen-foot wheels, strung
ftlong ' at twenty-four-foot Intervals,
with an Ingenious device for liberating
them when their work of carrying the
pipe which was hung from their axles
nas finished. The plan worked ad
mirably until the wet sand was
reached, and then the wheels sank in
the sand and it required all' the efforts
of two crews of men with tackle to
propel the mass nt the rate of perhaps
an Inch per minute into the water to
Its final resting place. When 300 feet
of the sewer was In the water some of
the wheels were liberated by the heavy
waves, and this precipitated the end
of the pipe to the sand, making the
launching still more difficult.
This sewer Is to be connected with a
pipe which leads to the end of the city
sewer system and will convey the sew
age out into the bay instead of allow
ing It to be dumped on to the beach,
as has been the case for some time.
The poisonous natural gases that
have been encountered in the southern
part of the city tunnel have resulted in
the death of one of. the workmen. An
geio Lopez was asphyxiated while at
work early Sunday morning. >i ; ;
After a hard struggle, In which
weapons wore displayed but not used,
Detectives Talamantes and Rlteh last
evening arrested David Patterson,
wanted on a charge of having stolen
a horse from the Santa Ana stables on
East First street. Patterson was at
his home at 854 San Julian street when
the detectives captured him.
The complaint on which Patterson
v.as arrested was sworn to by John
Morris, proprietor of the Santa Ana
stables. It is alleged that Patterson
went to the stables and made ar
rangements to put chase a valuable
horse, promising to come back the fol
lowing day with the money. He re
turned all right, but instead of having
any coin to pay for the animal he gays
the man In charge what purported to
be an order for the horse.
The theft was discovered the next
day and Detectives Talamantes and
It I toh were given charge of the case.
They traced Patterson into Orange
county and came upon him just at
liusk, As soon as he saw the officers
Patterson retreated to a clump of
bushes and opened fire upon his pur
suers. None of his bullets reached the
mark, and rather than risk a chance
ambush . in the dark the officers al
lowed Patterson to escape, thinking
that in_ time he would return to his
home in Los Angeles.
Yesterday Ritch and Talamanteu
learned that Patterson was at his home
on ' San Julian street. When the of
ficers asked for him at the front door
Mrs. Patterson, who answered, stated
tliat her husband had not been homo
for several weeks and that Bhe did not
know his whereabouts. While she was
talking Patterson was hiding behind
a . door a few feet away, and when
he thought the time ripe ran for the
back door.
Detective Ritch had anticipated this
move, however, and by the time the
man wanted had reached the rear of
the house the officer was there to
seize him. The struggle which ensued
was anything but a peace conference,
and | Rttch had to break In a heavy
door before he secured his prisoner.
Patterson was searched but no weapons
were found on him. The officers would
take no chances, however, and took
their prisoner to the police station se
curely manacled. -
'i Patterson will be tried on the charge
of grand larceny.

Developments In the Kawich Region.
Why Los Angeles Should Help
Build a New Rail.
"January" Jones Is a name to conjure
with. It's the name of the luckiest man
who ever struck Goldfield. "January"
Jones has attained world wide fame as
the man' who discovered the January
lode, from which he extracted over one
million dollars In the time that elapsed
from January 5, 1901 to January 1, 1905.
Mr. Jones' own version of the Janu
ay strike makes Interesting reading and
furnishes prospective visitors to Gold
field with food for reflection. He says:
"I was one of the first mining en
gineers to be attracted by the reports
about Tonopah's richness, and when I
arrived the camp was Just beginning
to attract wide attention, on the re
ports of the great ten million dollar
Tonopah mine. I took a lease on a
Tonopah property and met with fair
success, and when my term expired I
decided to Investigate GolUfleld.; '.
"Rumors were rife that Goldfield was
rich In mineral, but no strike of any
great Importance had b&en made when
I decided to take a lease on the Janu
ary claim In January, 1904. My pnrt
ners scouted the idea- of leaving Tono
pah for what they considered a myth
ical Goldfield bonanza, but I had faith
in the January claim and had quietly
examined it and convinced myself that
there must be mineral somewhere.
There was good float to be found on
the surface, and while the owners of
the claim refused to permit a more
careful examination I discovered
enough to convince me that I wanted
the January lease, so my partners were
cut out and I went it alone.
The Great January Mine
"January 5, 1904, proved to be the
most eventful day In my career and
also a milestone in the history of
Goldfield, for on that day the news
was flashed in the camp that I had
struck It rich. In fact, my miners had
only worked an hour or two and had
simply removed a thin layer of earth
when there was revealed the great
'January' vein. From the grass roots
the ore ran from $250 to $2500 a ton,
nnd as fast as it was mined we placed
It in sacks and packed it to the railroad
on horses and mules, under the espion
age of armed guards. AYe took out In
one single day as much as $20,000, and
on account of the great cost of send
ing the ore to market, threw on the
dump vast quantities of ore, running
from $40 to $60 a ton. This dump con
tains today one million dollars worth
of this grade of ore, which will even
tually be treuted by reduction plants
on the ground and shipped In the form
of concentrates to the smelters.
"I am sure that If I could have hired
more men I would have taken out two
millions Instead of one million, but as
It was, I am pretty well satisfied, and
have reached a point where avarice
Is no longer a factor In my nature.
But I am still deeply interested In the
Goldfield and Tonopah district, where
I own a great many promising proper
ties, any one of which may develop Into
a 'January,' as the region Id mineral
ized for a distance of 200 square miles
around Goldfield.
In the Kawich Regions
"Strikes are reported dally, and only
six months ago a man by the name
of Heed, in passing through the Kawich
region, southeast of Goldfield, dropped
oft his horse to examine a ledge stand
ing above the ground, and to his
amazement found the rock literally
covered with free gold. This recounts
the discovery of the now famous Gold-
Reed mine, a mine which Is said to
have five million dolUrs worth of ore
in sight, and on which fifteen leasers
struck ore running from $250 to $1500
a ton In twenty-four hours after they
went to work.
"I was tipped olt on the Gold-Reed
strike and reached aKwlch In time to
Becure five claims on the Gold-Reed
ledge. These I have incorporated Into
the Kawich Gold Heed Mining com
pany'and I am going to make the com
pany a winner. Kawich, at present, has
a limited water supply, but with the
development of a permanent supply It
will soon make a record as a shipper."
Continuing Mr. Jones said: "There
In a tendency In Goldfield that Is rapid
ly crystallizing Into an unwritten law
to deal severely with 'wlld-catters.' Ev
ery prominent man In town Is Interest
ed In keeping up the good name of tho
grent Nevada camps. I, myself, have
been offered $5000 a month for the use
of my name In 'wildcat' schemes, which
shows you the extent to which some
vicious promoters will resort to fleece
the public from their money. Legiti
macy has been my hobby, and the
properties In which I have become In
terested up to date have all turned out
satisfactorily. For Instance, one of my
enterprises, the Bullfrog Eclipse, was
put on the market at ten cents a share
less than sixty days ago, and today the
shares are selling on the exchange at
Goldfield and San Francisco for twen
ty-five cents."
More Rich Strikes
"Don't be surprised," continued Mr.
Jones, ■ "to hear of other equally won
derful strikes as those already report
ed, for in all my career I have never
seen such a marvelously rich mineral
country as the Goldfleld-Bullfrog-Tono
pah district. So prolific has nature
been in her endowment of this region
with mineral resources, that everybody
has a chance to strike It, and the poor
man with perseverance and a little
knowledge of minerals has a good
chance to open up a bonanza.
"Goldfield and Tonopah are rapidly
growing into 4 solid. towns and the best
Indication of this Is the fact. that the
banks carry heavy deposits, and that
the merchants are erecting the most
substantial class of buildings. Town
lots in Goldfield now sell at $10,000
which I could have bought a year ago
for $150 each. A proportionate scale of
prices now prevails in Bullfrog and
In speaking of the railroad situation
Mr. Jones said: "We must have better
transportation in order to give the mine
owners, a chance to market their low
grade products. It Is necessary at
present to unload and transfer freight
three times over the Mound House
route and Los Angeles should get busy
and help compel the building of a road
to connect with the Salt Lake route
at some point between here and Las

Ice and Coal Wagon Drivers Strike
ity Associated Pleas
ST. LOUIS, April I.— A general strike
of ice and ' coal wagon drivers was
instituted here today, having been
called at a meeting of the International
Brotherhood of Teamsters last night for
the purpose of forcing the signing of a
contract guaranteeing last year's scale
of wages. Practically every coal and
ice wagon driver In St. Louis has quit
work, and many hotels and large con
sumers were forced to make their own
deliveries. It is estimated that 1100 men
are out.

Boyle Heights Chosen for the Crea-
tion of a Representative Resi
dential Tract — Streets to
Be Improved
Real estate announcements are bo
numerous In these piping days of ex
pansion and prosperity In Los Angeles
that something out of the ordinary l«
required In order to command the un
divided attention of the home-seeking
and Investing public.
Janss Investment company, with
offices In the Mason block, corner of
Fourth and Broadway, has just been
organized for the purpose of Improving
and disposing of n magnificent tract,
of 400 acres on Boyle Heights. To
handle such an enterprise properly
calls for capital, good judgment and
enterprise; and the Janss company
has undertaken the work In a manner
which promises much for the future
o" the section directly concerned and
for those who may become interested
in the subdivision.
Included In the big tract of the
Jnnss company Is the Highland Villa
subdivision of about 170 acres, at the
end of the East First street line of the
Los Angeles Railway company. For
merly It was known as Hazard's East
side addition, extending from the city
limits to Rowan avenue, and from Allso
street on the south to Wabash avenue
on the north.
Highland Villa tract Is only twenty
minutes' ride, by the conductor's time
card, from First and Spring streets,
where high ground, pure air, pure
water, fertile soil, cool breezes and
magnificent scenery are the great at
tractions. Highland Villa tract is In
the cream of East Los Angeles, so to
speak, in the indispensable adjuncts of
good health and comfortable living. It
is nlghest above sea level of any tract
in the city.
Topography of the tract varies, in
that part It Is level — "as smooth as
a floor" — while the remainder is slightly
rolling, stretching toward the foothils
in a beautiful landscape. Toward the
north and east rise the stern peaks
of the Sierra Madre range, the snow
capped summits of Mount San An
tonio and Us companion peaks being
plainly visible, with nothing to ob
struct the glorious view. The southern
edge of the Janss holding forms the
edge of a level plateau, from which the
ocean and Catallna island may be
plainly seen on clear days, with the city
of Los Angeles lying between. To the
southeast Is Whlttter, snuggling up
against the foothills.
Soil Is a rich red loam, which yields
readily to cultivation. Several years
ago 25,000 eucalyptus trees were set
out on a part of the property. The
principal streets are lined with those
stately trees, while elsewhere they
have been thinned out, except for shade
purposes on the several lots.
Bountiful supply of pure water Is an
indispensable condition. Highland Villa
street will be supplied from the com
pany's private wells on Stephenson
avenue. These wells are fourteen inches
in diameter, and the flow, with pump
ing, is thirty miners' inches— a magnifi
cent supply. This water will bo piped
to the tract by tho company, and each
lot buyer will be supplied absolutely
free of charge. It is believed this is a
niore liberal offer than has been made
Arrangements alrendy have been
made for electric light service, the
main wires of the Pacific Electric com
pany passing within a few feet of the
Laying out and grading of streets
already Is well under way, and as
soon as this work is done the laying
of sidewalks, of which more than seven
miles will be constructed, will be be
gun and pushed to completion as
rapidly as the most liberal employ
ment of men and money will permit.
This property was purchased at a
figure which permits the company to
give purchasers a large and certain
profit on the purchase money. Prices
of lots will range from $250 to |4SO
each, and most liberal terms will be
given., Besides this the company will
build houses on the property for lot
buyers and accept payment In Install
Janss company, as will readily bo
seen, starts under the most favorable
auspices, and It Is fair to presume that
Highland Villa tract, with Its mani
fold advantages mid the easy term?
offered, will be quickly sold out.
The JniißS company Is Incorporated
for $200,000 nnd backed by half ii mil
lion besides; Is made up by men of
honesty and Integrity, which will guHr
iintco to every buyer In tho Highland
Villa tract that each promise will In
strictly adhered to, and that dealings
are niHde with responsible people.
For those who are not able to put up
the cash the Janss Investment Co. will
sell lots and build for those who desire,
and purchasers can pay in monthly
payments. . .
