Pasadena News Notes of Interest Pasadena Agency. 114 East Colorado Street. PASADENA, Aug. 29.— E. E. Twom ley, superintendent of track work for the Santa Fe, had a narrow es cape this afternoon when aya v num ber of Mexicans engaged in re pairing the tracks in the railroad yards in this city tried to mob him for discharging threo of their number. As It was, the timely arrival of Officers Copping and Pierce with loaded re volvers was all that saved him from a severe beating, perhaps worse. Twomley has some fifty Mexicans under him and th.ey have been in clined to be ugly for a week past, obeying his orders with grumbling and black looks. This afternoon the trouble came to a head when the fore man, thinking he. had found the ring leaders, discharged three of the cholos, . Lucaa Quenteros, Vlctorlano Quenteros and Jose Alvlno. The men suddenly seized picks and shovels and backed by the other laborers made an attack on the foreman. Twomley put his back against a convenient wall and kept the men off with a club while a passerby telephoned for help. The three men pleaded not guilty before Justice Congdon this evening and their hearing was set for tomorrow morn ing.' There are likely to be other ar rests. Bicyclists In the Net I Policeman Schultz brought in nine bicyclists this morning gathered on South Mentor avenue, charging them with riding on the sidewalk. The offi cer visited the locality on the com plaint of some persons residing there who said that pedestrians were hav ing a hard time to maintain their rights on the sidewalks. For an hour and a half the wheelmen were gathered into the dragnet as they came along. Police Judge j "Wood was informed by the spokesman of the party that the street at the point named was nearly impassable, making It almost necessary for bicyclists to ride where the side walk would be .were there such an ar ticle in j the neighborhood. _. The court let' the party, oft; on suspended .sen tence, promising to examine' the place in person and to let the wheelmen oft scot free if their statement waa true, otherwise the. usual fine of three-dol lars per capita. To Buy Voting Machines The city council today discussed the advisability of purchasing six United States • standard- -voting machines, as recommended by the special committee which witnessed a, trial of the machines at Los Angeles yesterday. .These si* machines would mean an expenditure of $2400 by the city, the county being willing to pay the other half of the total- price. It was finally decided to postpone a decision until next week. At the same meeting: today the city attor ney reported that he had written to the counsel of "the Pacific Electric Rail way company asking by what right the company had erected poles along North Lake avenue without extending their line along that section of the street and that his letter had been ignored. Tha council ordered- a quantity of street work, but adjourned early because of the intense heat. Pasadena Brevities Dr. Ward .B.

SAN BERNARDINO, Aug. 29.-A sensation was sprung before the city council last night when- the matter of the sale of the Rialto electric line fran chise asked for by Seth Hartley came up, resulting in the sale being hung up. The prospects . for the granting of the franchise are now exceedingly doubtful. I Attorney Byron Waters appeared on behalf of John A.' Cole, a property owner past whose property the line will run. ' He submitted a lengthy brief, the principal ■ point in which was that the city could not grant a franchise for the carrying of freight in the street by a street railroad. The point is a new and novel . one r and 1 created/ a ■ sensation among attorneys, of whom there were a number present. ■■■.-■ ;|J ; ■ o'^ . The validity of the publication notice of sale of the franchise i was i success fully attacked with tnV result that the council, by a tie vote, refused to again order the notice to be published. The matter, j however, .went over to next Monday night, when. Mr. Hartley will probably have his 'attorney present' to meet those, who appeared' on behalf of the interests opposed to the line. While the Santa Fe railroad was not openly represented at the meeting it is gener ally understood that the real opponent of the new line is that corporation, which will j lose its . monopoly of the Rialto orange growing .district if the line Is built and is given a freight carry- Ing ■ privilege. The • forest flre that started In the mountains yeuterday afternoon north west of the city ia atlll raging. The flames, which started near the foot of the mountains west of Devil canyon, have reached the crest of the range and got into some of the heavy timber. This afternoon they are sending up large volumes of smoke. It is feared In the valley that the sawmill property in that section is in danger. The forest rangers are lighting the flre with the aid of ranchers in that vicinity and the summer campers ,-. in the mountains. The work is carried on; with difficulty owing. to the scarcity of water in that section. ■ •■".*•. 0 James P. Hurh«a. who hai been awaiting trial in the county jail for several weeks on a charge of assault on 15-year-old Kate Moreno, last night attempted to take his own life'by drinking a pint bottle of formaldahyde which was being used by the Jailer for disinfecting purposes. Physicians were promptly summoned, • Everything pos sible was done to save the man's life, and he is still living, though in a crit ical condition. Hughes has been in the. county Jail for neany a. year on various charges, and he was once sent to the penitentiary from Los Angeles for burglary. He believed the girl, his ac cuser, had stolen the Jewelry that he was to sell in order to secure money for his defense. ' A baby belonging to a French family named John Aselntwler, living at La tona, has been smothered to death by being too closely covered with the be3 ing in its cradle. The services of Cor oner Pittman were calledMn to hold an inquest. John Hansen, the man who has been constable at Barstow since, time im memorial, has ' resigned his job. It !s understood that since the fee. system came into vogue Hansen. has not been getting any business, the work all be ing secured by Tom Smithson, the Santa Fe's special officer at the desert town. Saloon Troubles Crop Up Again The supervisors are confronted by the question of whether Ludlow Is, or is not in Ludlow precinct. The *matter came up on the matter of the liquor license of Mrs. Preston, which stated when filed that Ludlow was In Bagdad precinct. It developed that at the last election Ludlow precinct went "dry" and the people there ' objected to the saloon. The ■ license will probably be revoked and a hotel license granted in its place. If this is not done the saloon will have to be moved about four miles across the line. The old Chlno saloon fight Is on again. John Sandoz has applied for a license but it is opposed by Supervisor Pine of Chlno and the Anti-Saloon league As Sandoz has been once convicted for violation of the liquor law the super visors will hear testimony as to his fitness to receive a license.
