The Boyle Heights line will go to Brooklyn avenue. - The Pasadena avenue line of the Pa cific Electric and the Temple street, Eighth street and AVestlnke park linen of the Interurbnn will nil leave from the center of the city at 1 nnd 2 o'clock, going over the regular lines. This service will begin after midnight Monday] The cars on the return from the 2 o'clock trip will go Into the barns as directly as possible and will not return to the point from which they started. This schedule Is considered highly satisfactory for a starter, by suffering Angelenos, who have been trying for years to secure an all night street car service. The cautious experiment of the railway companies to see If they can make a late car service pay for Itself, or at least not make too great a hole In the dally earnings of the day service, Is hailed with delight by those who have been compelled to go to bed early or walk home after the cars have stopped. This extension gives cars an hour and a half later than has been the case heretofore and not only allows the tollers of the night a chance to ride home to their families and the theatergoers an., opportunity for a little dinner after the theater, but also gives a chance for those who are compelled to go to their daily labors in the stilly watches of the early morning to avoid the lurking high wayman. ; . . - '; Begins on Holiday The company expects to lose money on the owl cars at the beginning at least, but it is not at all probable that any money will be lost after the first few weeks. It is probable that the first owl cars will be crowded. Not only will a large number of persons ride on them for the novelty of the thing-, but Mon day Is a holiday, Admission Day, and thousands of visitors will be in the city. This, in itself, will crowd the owl cars as well as the day cars. Those who are familiar ■with the owl service in other cities the size of Los Angeles declare that the companies will make money on the 1 o'clock car, but lose on the 2 o'clock car. They add, however, that a 8 o'clock car will not only cover the loss of the 2 o'clock car but leave a goodly margin of profit, especially when the system Is well un derstood. • ", BERKELEY GETS COLLECTION Bradlgle Botanical Specimens, Num. . berlng 100,000, Donated to the University of California By Associated Press. - '• ■: .•;■;"•', -i\ BERKELEY, Sept. 7.— President Wheeler today announced the gift to the University of California of the en tire botunical collection belonging, to <Jtfr.

PETERSBURG, Sept. 7.— The Batjenoff commission, which Is elabor ating reforms for the army, has recom mended the admission of Jews to the officer corps, from which hitherto they" have been excluded except in the ca pacity, of surgeons. ■The recommendation, which is coupled with the condition that the assent of the. officers of. the unit to which they are assigned must be secured In each case, will be presented to the emperor for approval and Is In . line ! with the policy to : which Premier Stolypln is committed. \,J* ■ , It probably will be accepted though the recently formed anti-Jewish party Is campaigning energetically against the proposition and is also much enraged at the decision of the minister of edu cation providing for the unrestricted admission of the Jews'to the universi ties which goes into-, effect at 'the opening of the, next term. The Svelt declares that If the Jewa are unrestrictedly admitted, . In ten years they will have driven the Rus sians from the higher schools. The Jews heretofore have- been restricted to from three to five per cent of the enrollment. Dispatches from Odessa and other cities in Southern Russia report the re turn of many Jews who went to Pales tine under the influence of the recent movement. They complain of Inability to exist there owing to the oppression of the Arabs. STEVE ADAMS SEEKS - HABEAS CORPUS WRIT By Associated Press. " BOISE.

SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 8, 1906. BARBOUE QUIETLY RETURNS Speculator Is Now at His Home in Long Beach Says Big Claims are Paid and Balance Will Be Adjusted Natural Increase In Value of Realty Holdings Enables Promoter to Straighten Up His Affairs and Start Anew After an absence of seven months, during which time various newspaper stories have been printed concerning his disappearance and the cause thereof, Henry P. Harbour quietly returned to his home at Long Beach from Ense nada last night, and now declares that he Is ready to face his accusers and eventually, will be able to meet his obligations In full. The story is familiar to Herald read ers. Barbour was an extensive real estate dealer and enjoyed the confidence of numerous wealthy residents of Los An geles and the surounding cities. • Speculations which for the time.be ing tied up all of his available cash, and left him without sufficient funds to meet his obligations, brought numerous creditors with demands for Immediate settlements. ■ < ' For a time Mr. Barbour attempted to raise enough money to satisfy them, but failing, he quietly left the city and went to Knsenada. \-ry(" There, according to Mr.' Barbour's statements last night, he has been liv ing quietly, awaiting the time when he might return to Long Beach and satisfy his creditors. Comes to Pay Up When seen last night by a Herald reporter at his home on Lime street. Long Beach,-Mr. Barbour said: r-;f. -■- "I have returned for one reason, and for one reason only, namely, that I might make an-effort to settle In full with my friends who placed confidence in me and to whom I am Indebted." "All of the larger claims have been adjusted, but those who have small claims are entitled to a square deal, and I am going to see that they get it. "For this purpose a meeting will be called within a few days, and those who have claims against me will be given an opportunity of talking the affair over. "When I left Long Beach ther,e were assets In the shape of stocks, options and equities in general in Long Beach, San Pedro and Los Angeles sufficient to pay all of my debts' in full, provided the property was handled properly. "In the first place, the amount of my Indebtedness was greatly exaggerated. "It never amounted to m6re than one tenth of the sum given to the public by some of the newspapers. Big Claims Adjusted ; "The larger amounts have already been settled, and the smaller sums will be attended to just as soon as possible. "I will see my counsel immediately, and after we have had an opportunity of looking over the books, we will call a meeting and try to arrange some basis of adjustment. "I want to say right here that those to whom I am indebted have been very patient and considerate, and the news papers as a rule, especially The Herald, hove treated me fairly. "The whole story in a nutshell Is that I had too many obligations. "Of course, my assets were sufficient to meet them all, provided I had time to realize on valuble properties, but when a sudden call for settlements came I could not realize enough to meet them. Properties Increase ■ "However, one of the remarkable things about the whole deal, and one of the things which makes It possible for me to look forward to settling up my accounts in full, is the fact that while I have been away nearly"every piece of property In which I was in terested had increased In value all the way from 25 to 60 per cent. This will greatly assist me in raising funds with which to pay off my creditors." ' $20,000 Unpaid When asked to state how much the remaining indebtedness would amount to Mr. Barbour replied that It would not exceed $20,000,-and intimated that it would be considerably less than this figure.. "Since leaving Long Beach," said Mr. Barbour, "I have been living a rugged, outdoor life. "As a consequence I am feeling good, and now that there is a chance to settle my obligations I can assure you that my future looks several hundred per cent brighter than It did a few months ago. . "You probably heard stories about million dollar hotel deals In Mexico, in which I was supposed to'be the prime mover, but there was nothing to them. "I did look around considerable, and my business qualifications naturally Cuutluuiwl on vuuu ing, * , DEFRAUDS HUNDREDS; THREATENS SUICIDE By Atsoclated Press. NEW YORK, Sept. 7.— Hotel keepers of this city who were defrnuded last month out of bills for board, lodßlng nnd carriage hire, to say nothing of the cash paid to him on worthless checks, doubt If "the smooth stranger" Is really dead.

CALHOUN STANDS FIRM REFUSES TO RECOGNIZE THE CLOSED SHOP Carmen, However, Are Informed That Their Hours and Wages Will Not Be Affected Irr Any Manner By Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 7.— As a re sult of today's developments there is in prospect a deadlock between the United Railroads and its employes, who decided last Wednesday evening to submit the question of hours and wages to arbitration. ,An unexpected complication has arisen tonight through a demand ;of the' employes" for recognition of O the" ciosed shop, which President Patrick Calhoun has refused to concede. In his reply to the demand for the closed shop, Mr. Calhoun says: "In reply to the information you have now given me that certain members of your unions decline to work with men now in my employ, I cannot make it too clearly my unalterable position that I will not discharge any man who faith fully and efficiently, performs his serv ice to make place for some one else; and I certainly will not do this at thu dictation of anyone. Under my Instructions, however, the fact that no one employed during the strike will be discharged will not in any way affect the hours, wages or class of labor that the former men re turning to work would have, nor will they In any way be discriminated against after their return. "I understand that there are only about twenty men affected by the ques tion you have now brought up and I trust you will find some way to avoid further differences between us." For the present the result of the questions submitted to arbitration seem to hava been forgotten. President Richard Cornelius of the carmen's union, with representatives of the affiliated organizations and ""TV. P. McCabe, secretary of the labor council, are tonight considering the reply of President Calhoun. ASSASSIN'S PLANS ARE FRUSTRATE 1 ! By Associated Press. ST. PETERSBURG.

Natiian Cole Jr., Declines to Goßetbre Sacramento Convention as a Candidate for Nomination : for Governor— Large Business :.. Interests Cause of Action kilith >'.'■' .SEPTEMBER , 5, } : 1906. Mr. W. Ona Morton, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Delega tion to the Democratic State Convention, Los Angelesj . Cal. : Dear Sir— Upon, my. return from my. vacation in the giant for est I learned of the action of the Los Angeles county delegation in I making me its candidate for the nomination of governor before the Democratic state, convention to be held at Sacramento. " " I assure you that this is the highest compliment ever paid x me in my life, and I also assure you that words cannot express my feel ing of gratitude toward each member of the delegation. ' I am also informed that many delegates throughout Southern California and in. other portions of the state have expressed their intention. to vote for me at the convention; to these as well I wish to tender my thanks and to assure them of my feeling of gratitude and good will. . ,' '■'•:'.., • I regret exceedingly to say, as I have often said before, both privately and publicly, that it is practically impossible for rrie to ac cept this nomination even were it tendered me, which last contin gency is not entirely probable. With others I am engaged in the development of a very impor tant industry in this state in the construction and operation of a beet sugar factory in the San Joaquin valley. Possibly I might abandon this work to accept public office even to my own detriment, but in doing so there is danger of jeopardizing the interests of others who have invested largely in the enterprise. ,' V I have never sought nor held public office, but I have a keen appreciation of the duty of every . citizen to serve the state when such course seems necessary. In the present case I do not consider myself entirely worthy of the honor sought to be conferred, nor am I unmindful of the fact that the Democratic party contains many men who, by reason of long service in the par,ty, by temperament and by ability are better qualified than I am to fill this . high, office. With keen regret I am therefore compelled to state that I can not be an aspirant for the nomination as a candidate for governor and that I must refuse such nomination if made. Feeling certain that in its wisdom the coming Democratic state convention will nominate a candidate in every way qualified to fill the office, I now pledge him my hearty support. V;\ ■ Permit me again to thank the delegation for its confidence in me and the great honor conferred upon me, Without doubt the great est I have received in my life. Yours sincerely, \\^ -^NATHAN COLE, JR. Great regret was expressed yesterday by Democrats generally, and by dele gates to the Sacramento convention In particular, over the refusal of Nathan Cole, jr., to become a candidate for the nomination of governor. His letter, addressed to Mr. W. O. Morton, chairman of the Lios Angeles delegation to Sacramento, explains the situation clearly and gives the friends of Mr. Cole to understand J that for business reasons he feels impelled to withdraw his name from further con sideration by the Democrats of South ern California In connection with the governorship. ' That this determination is Irrevocable goes without saying, for it Is known that Mr. Colo gave the subject long and serious consideration, and was willing to give his time and money to the suc cess of the party. Hefound, however, that to enter upon a campaign of the whole state- of California might jeopardize the financial Interests of buslnee* associates by attracting his PRICE: SINGLE COPY 5 CENTS attention away from the great Industry 1 which he and his company are just be ' ginning at Vlsalla. When this declsloln was communi cated to the Los Angeles delegation yenterday, it created unanimous ex pressions of regret and disappointment. Such Democrats as A. C. Harper, \V. O. Morton, Tony Schwamm and Capt. Cake at ence protected to Mr. Cole and asked him to reconsider his determina tion, as it was easily to be seen that the nomination was within Mr. Cole's, grasp; but a few moments of explana tion and argument convinced them all that Mr. Cole meant what he said; that ho had declared himself only after he hit I viewed the whole situation from every standpoint, and that his reconsid eration was not possible. A number of the delegate* met again last night, with S. P. Clark as the lead ing spirit, and formally declared that at ■ least a complimentary vote would be given Mr. Cole at Sacramento. ,Thls Is all they could do, although some were cess of the party. He found, however, In favor of to vote plainly continuing. Continued urn '»■*• two. '■ REGISTER TODAY Won't full tn register Iminj. *»p' 20 I* <h« Mm <lsf of imce If r°" vrl.h to T««« thl* ffltl.
