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. • ",

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
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
"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. .

million dollar hotel deals In Mexico, in
which I was supposed to'be the prime

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.

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,
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
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
