A serious but not necessarily fatal
accident occurred at Second and Broad
way. last night at 6:20 o'clock when
Mrs. C. B. Gibbs of 619 East Washing
ton Btreet was hurled from her
bicycle beneath the wheels' of- Chief
Lips' fire wagon, driven by E. M. Cox
of Engine company No. 3.
'"'After running over Mrs. Gibbs,. Cox
continued .down Second street, paying
Tio heed whatever to the injured wo
man, who was carried to the office of
Dr. A. J. Berry In the Copp building,
suffering from severe body bruises and
in a Btat« of nervous collapse.
■ A wave of indignation swept over the
pedestrians, who rushed to the assist
ance of Mrs. Glbba, which was further
augmented when her husband, who had
witnessed the accident, yet not being
aware of the victim's Identity, became
frantic with grief and excitement as
he realized that his wife had been hurt.
Horse Spares Her
. That lira. Gibbs. sustained no more
serious injuries than she did. Is prob
ably due to the fact that Cox's horse,
after colliding with ' the cyclist, ap
peared to possess something approach
ing human Intelligence and deliberately
jumped across the prostrate woman,
who was hurled directly between the
wheels of the cart.
Mrs. Gibbs was riding south on Broad
way as the flre wagon dashed down
pecond street from the Hill street sta
tion. At the intersection pedestrians
waved to her frantically, but not be
fore she had come near the center of
Mrs. Gibbs succeeded In partially
stopping her bicycle and had one foot
on the pavement as the horse plunged
against her. As she lay unconscious

no, though the majority understood
that such a proceeding would not be
fair to their friend.
It Is certain, however, that the Los
Angeles delegation will' go to Sacra
mento with at least one vote In their
pocket for Nathan Cole. After that It
is not certain what course will be pur
sued, but there are indications that
the delegation will vote for James D.
Phelan, If they can be convinced that
Phelan will accept the nomination. It
is said that one member of the delega
tion has a letter from Mr. Phelan say-
Ing he would accept the nomination if
tendered, but this could not be con
firmed last night.
The feeling is general, however, that
Phelan is In a receptive mood: that he
can unite all the forces; that he will be
unanimously nominated, and that he'
can readily defeat Glllett and the rail
road machine ticket.
Robert G. Loucks, the city attorney
of Pomona, will be the candidate of the
Los Angeles delegation for the nomina
tion of attorney general. Mr. Loucks
has gained much prominence through
out Southern California by his suc
cessful fight agaln6t corporations.

New York Bankers Believe Order
Will Be Respected
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Sept. 7.— Secretary
Shaw's letter on the use of public
money for. speculative purposes created
a great deal of surprise in banking- cir
cles in this city, where it was believed
that a good deal of the money to be
deposited by the government at Inte
rior points would speedily be diverted
to this center.
Special interest was shown in the
secretary's order enjoining depository
banks from lending government money
at high rates. It was recognized by
New York bankers that the trade is In
a position to maintain a close watch on
the operations ot the depository banks
in this connection, because of the re
port made by them five times a year to
the comptroller of the currency.

After drifting helplessly fourteen
miles 2000 feet above the earth In an

Matteray .made the ascension against
his judgment knowing that the ma
chinery had been broken and spliced.
But the crowds, eager to see a man
risk hia life, declared that the story of
the broken propeller shaft was told as a
ruse to' avoid making an ascension.
Therefore. Matteray went up just to
"make good." .
People living along the west coast of
Green bay have failed to discover any
trace of the aeronaut.

Prediction is Made by Delegate to
the Republican Convention
That Phslan Can Be
Special to The Herald.
PANTACRUSS, Bept. 7,— The Southern
Pacific excursion, nn a lifelong Ro
publlrnn tersely characterized tho state
Republican convention, was concluded
today, nlthough officially It was brought
to a close yesterday whon the candi
dates selected by the railroad interests
formally wore placed In nomination.
"If the Domorrntß of California ever
hnd a golden " opportunity to elect a
fltnte ticket thoy have It now," said
ono of the drlpßntcs as ho started for
the depot this morning. .
And this particular delegate ad
mitted that he voted for Gillett, but
ho cxplnnerl that he ' Is tied to tho
Southern Pacific machine.
"Wo have nominated Glllett, but we
have not elected him," is a significant
remark made by dozens of delegates,
mnny of whom are known to have
voted for the slate from top to bottom,
Democratic Victory Predicted
"If the Democrats nominate James
D. Phelart they will elect the next gov
prnor as sure as fate, If not the en
tire ticket," was the emphatic decla
ration of an old-time Republican and.
oiip who has held a state office.
"The ticket nominated today is a
Southern Pacific affair from top" to
bottom," he continued, "and every de
cent Republican In the state should
blush for shame at such an open
demonstration of corporation control
In Republican affairs of California.
"I am not saying this for publication
or for effect, neither will I declare how
I shall vote, but I expect to see Gll
lett defeated If Phclan Is nominated."
Even those who profess to believe
that -Glllett is the best man the Re
publicans could have nominated ex
press fear of the outcome should the
Democrats nominate Phelan at the
convention to be held In Sacramento
next Tuesday. ' .-. •
Damper on the Convention
Throughout the proceedings of the
convention there was an absolute ab
sence of enthusiasm usually displayed
at state conventions held by political
It was conceded on every side that
the slate had been made up by men
employed by the Southern Pacific. The
names of party leaders, both national
and state, were not greeted by the
demonstrative applause that might
have been expected, and the reading
of the platform was not once Inter
rupted by cheers.
Former Judge McKiniey's advice, In
hls>peech as temporary chairman of
the convention, to "stand pat" on the
tariff was received almost In silence.
y Relief From Dull Routine
The only enlivening features wore
DorSey Pat ton's humorous speech, the
attempt by Abe Ruef to bring about
the nomination of Miss Kate Adam 9of
Napa for' superintendent of public In
struction, and the Summerland-Hen
derson "contest" for railroad commis
sioner. ■ - >
Otherwise the convention was very
much on the routine order. Tho old
warlinrses of the party showed no
indication of "smelling the smoke of
battle from afar," but Instead they
gave visual evidence of smelling the
smoke from tho Southern Pacific ma
chine from very close quarters.
It Is pate to say that the Republicans
of California will display more than
common' lnterest In the doings of tha
Democratic convention at Sacramento
next week. • '. ■.",■ >,•■■'-

done nothing in a business way."
"And, now," said the reporter as he
started to leave, "how about your fu
ture? Will you remain here and go
into business again?"
"Yes, indeed," said .Mr. Barbour,
"My home is here, my ■wife has been
here all the time and is still here as
you see, and I intend remaining In
Long Beach." ; .: \-

Disappears In February
Henry P. Rarbour disappeared Feb
ruary 5. On that day, when one Los
Angeles newspaper reported him flying
to Canada, and another to Mexico, he
was Interviewed by a Herald reporter
at the Douglas block.
At that time he declared he had no
intention of leaving t,oa Angeles. Ha
admitted being financially eunbarraseed
and said that owing to the impor
tunity of his creditors he was shutting
himself away from all visitors.
It was known for. a long time before
this that he was a! heavy and rat her
rash speculator in the real estate
market, but the termination of his
connection with the Los Angeles Dock
and Terminal company under peculiar
clrcumetanoes came as a big surprise.
It was then reported that ha had fled
leaving $250,000 in debts behind him.
Burks Expresses Confidence
■ At that time Dana Burks, president
of the Los Angeles Dock and Terminal
company, said he had no reason to
b.ejleve that Mr, Barbour was a dis
honest man,
"How much he owes I have no
means of knowing," said Mr. Burks,
"but I have tha fullest confidence In
Mr. Barbour as a man' and cannot be
lieve that he would be dishonest and
flee from the> city. He has no reasons
for such actions.
"Barbour was Instrumental In selling:
to the company the land that It ac
quired about the proposed harbor, and
he was given a hlock ' of stock as his
commission. In all his dealings he
was always strictly upright, but In his
private business ho was a largs specu
lator and took a good many risks.
"When the directorate saw that Mr.
Barbour was putting himself forward
too much and that he was being
quoted too much In the press as one
of the leaders of the company it wan
thought best to have, him step out.
That Is all there Is to his leaving the

The Pacific Electric Railway Company
to Ensenada, by boat.' Mr. Barbour
returned to Los Angeles last' night
by the same route.
On Sunday morning, February 11,
The Herald -exclusively announced the
whereabputs of Henry P. Barbour. By
that time otjier papers hqd placed him
Jn Vermont, Europe and Canada. But
the guesses proved to be w|ld ones,
for he was In Hnsenada.
He was keeping In close touch with
some of his closest L«os Angeles
A prominent attorney of. Los Angeles
visited him there In. the hope of aiding
him to untangle his affairs, The. at
torney announced at that time that
within a few hours of the time Thn
Herald representative Interviewed Mr.
Harbour at the Douglas building ha
was on his way to San Plego.
"He did not go there on my advice,
but Insisted on getting away from tho
clamoring creditors and I could not
persuade him to remain- In the mate,",
paid, the attorney, "He Is not a fugi
tive from justico, he In simply cloliik
what many other jnen* do .under simi
lar circumstances— getting; away from
the racket. He felt that he could not
work to advantage In Los Angeles. All
talk aivinit any criminal action being
taken Is nonsense. "
McCarty Gets Judgment
Monday, February 12, W, U, Mo-
Carty w given Judgment against
Barbour. The rase went by default
.when the defendant failed to appear.
Thai 'same day a prominent Long
Beach man told a Herald reporter that
Barbour waa regarded. , an orn of. the
most solid men In the beach city. ■.»■
"I have . known Mr. Barbour for a.
long time," she said, "and there , was
never any Intimation that his credit
was not good. He was a promoter, but
always stood well at the. local banks
and was reputed k to bo wealthy. Ho
used to tell me of the enormous profit
he mado on various deals and in every
project for the advancement of Long
Beach Mr. Barbour took a prominent
part* . . . . N
"His holdings In the Ocean Pier tract
were con&ldered very ] valuable, and
Buch was his personality that he could
borrow various sums pf money hera
from private parties without any se-'
curlty, I do not believe that he has
ever been dishonest In any of his deal
ings, but he was a speculator and took
long chances,"
At the Bay view hotel in . Ensenada
Henry Barbour lived quietly. He had
little to do with the other guests,
and took lonely trips riding through -
the country or sailing on the ocean. *
From tlma to time Tha Heraldpub-.
Ughed interviews with him hut In nona .
of these did he give warnings of his
Intentions to return to California, Af
ter his Interview with the Los Angeles
attorney ha received quantities of mall -
