Short of the Demand
Special to The Haiald.
SANTA BARBARA, April 24.— A. J.
Anderson, one of the sailors
from the Bennington, met with a seri
ous accident, the result of which can
not be determined.
Anderson and about thirty of his
companions were at tre plunge at tho
Flaza del Mar doing stunts in the
water to the great amusement of a bier
gathering of friends in the balcony.
Anderson made a sensational dash
down the chute and nearing the bot
tom fell and instantly disappeared
beneath the water. In a very short
time he was taken out and It was
found that he was unconscious from
contusion of the brain. He was r«
moved to one of the ships where he
remained In a semiconscious state
throughout the entire night.
It Is not known how serious the in
jury will prove, though it is feared that
the skull has been fractured.
Sailorman In Trouble
Frank Clearey of the flagship Chi
cago is In trouble In this city. He
left his ship on a one duy leave of
absence and failed to reappear. The
matter was placed in the hands of
the city police and he was apprehended
in one of the saloons- on State street.
Cleary at the time of his arrest was
dressed in citizen clothes and all In
dications point toward desertion. He
will be held to answer to thut charge.
The Bean Outlook
Commercial Agent Shllllngsburg of
the Southern Pacific gives some Inter
esting figures In connection with the
bean Industry of this and Ventura
county. He stated that at present
there are about 75,000 sacks of beans
in the two counties. Of these 60,000
sacks are Limns and the ' remainder
Lady Washlngtons, and small whites.
At this time .last year there were
300,000 sacks in. the two counties and
In five months from May to September
there were 85,000 sacks 'Shipped, leaving
a holdover of 200,000 sacks. If there '.s
the same demand for beans this year
as there was lust there will be a com
plete clean up and there will be a
shortage of 10,000 sacks. . The fact that
this is the case is the cause of the
present high quotations.
