PASADENA, Nov. o.— Where there Is
a will there is a way, and this old say
lngI Ing has never been more beautifully
exemplified than In the ense of the
much needed emergency room for the
local police department. T'X -,'' 1
Imi-II mi-I Chief of Police Plnkhftm In
eludedc luded a request for money enough to
outnt a Hne surgical department In his
annual expense estimate. Then the
city council cut out that feature be
cause the city had not enough money,
Next the police tried to get some char
itable person to pay for the depart
ment which wan so much desired. This
plan also failed.
Neither the police nor Police Commis
sioner M odill, who appreciated the need
for such a department, were discour
aged, however, and the' officials got
together with the reHult that In , all
probability the problem has been solved
and the way It has. been worked out will
bc announced at the meeting of the city
police commissioners next Monday.
Medlll and Surgeon McCoy, who does
much of the departmental work, hit
upon a portion of the corridor entrance
lnto the police station na Just the plane
for the emergency ward, and then they
enlisted the assistance of Mayor Wa
te'rhouse in the enterprise. As money
was scarce Y>\ McCoy. pruned down the
list of supplies and Instruments to the
minimum and Commissioner Medlll. Is
building with his own hands the ope
rating table.
3 Two partitions, a couple of doors and
less than a hundred dollars of material
for the actual work is all that the city
will have to buy, and there is every in
dication that the new ward will come
lnto being before December 1.
The police have needed such a room
for years. Two men have died within
the past twelve months upon the floor
of the station house, In lieu of a bet
ter place.
These two coses made a profound Im
pression upon the police authorities,
and as a result the agitation for the
emergency ward was started. \
ltI It is hoped that after the ward Is
once in "operation it can be added to
• Hltle by little until It conforms to the
needs of the department.

HOODOO PURSUES THIS
PASADENA UNFORTUNATE
REDUCED TO BEGGARY, MAN IS
SENT TO JAIL
Falls from Stepladder, Slips on Cherry
Stone, Is Overcome by Heat, Falls
Off a Car, Breaks an Arm and
Steps on a Nail
Rporlnl to Thn TTornld,
PASADKNA, Nov. !).— Martin Cole,
just sentenced to the city jail for five
d*yi In Los Angeles, Is well known In
Pasadena, where, his series of peeullnr
mi.sfiirtiineß have mnde him nn object
of unusual tntereet
So persistently has the man hern
followed by 111 luck that, within a year
and a half he has been reduced from
the position of n sober and self-respect
ing painter to the rank of a common
mendicant.
About a year and a half ngo Cole
♦fell from the third step of a steplad
der upon which hp was working. The
fall In Itself did not amount to much,
but the man struck In such a manner
that he fractured a vertebrae. All the.
man's money went in getting a silver
"bone" set Into his spine to replace the
fractured one.
Released from the hospital, Oie
stepped upon a cherry stone on Col
orado street in Pasadena, fell to the
sidewalk and struck In such a mnnncr
that the sliver plate presaod upon his
spinal column. It took six men to hold
him during the fits which, followed.
Again released from the hospital,
Cole exposed himself too soon to the
heat of the summer sun, was overcome
by the sun at Colorado street and Fair
Oaks avenue and lay for days In his
room unable to move.
Again tempting Providence, Cole
started out and Imprudently ran for a
car at the same corner where the sun
had previously knocked him out. Ho
missed his hold on the hand rail, fell
under the car and a part of one of his
heels was cut off. He came within an
ace of death, but was saved and again
taken up for repairs.
Out upon the street in a few weeks,
he went to Los Angeles, slipped in step
ping from a curb stone, struck his back
upon a fire hydrant and dropped un
conscious in the gutter. There the po-
Uoe found him and took him to the
city jail, diagnosing the case as one of
ploim drunk. Cole lay for a day without
medical attention, when the police be
came alarmed and had him examined.
Once again Cole was at the hospital
for repairs, and finally being- dls
ch«rged he went to Chicago to try a
change of luck.
Nothing much happened to him there,
as he only had an arm broken and ran
a rusty nail through his foot while
away.
Returning to Los Angeles he decided
that it was not safe to attempt work of
any kind, and so he set to work beg
ging-. For this he is in the city Jail,
while hi» hoodoo wanders at large.
WRESTLE IN VAIN
WITH SEWAGE CASE
Special to The Herald.
SANTA MONICA, Nov. 9. — After hav
ing spent more than two hours in B.
heated debate relative to the disposi
tion to be made of the city's sewerage
and in questioning the action of the
board of city trustees in steadfastly re
fusing to make any disposition of the
$24,000 voted more than a year ago for
septic tank purposes about 300 citizens
who answered the call of the board of
trade in attending last night's mass
meeting at the city hall left for their
homes without anything of a definite
nature having been done In the matter.
The meeting was called to order by
W. I. Hull, president of the board of
trade, who stated that a petition had
been presented to the city trustees by
Ocean Park business men, who de
manded thai the septic tank be built
at Bay street.
He said that the interests of Santa
Monica demanded that the petition be
denied.
City Trusthee W. S. Vawter then, re
sponding to the request of Mr. Hull,
stated his views and made it plain that
he would oppose the plan to constrj^ct
the tank if one is constructed elsewhere
than In the Pier avenue district.
A. R. Fraser, president of the Ocean
Park Improvement company, attempted
to arraign Individual members of the
board for the hostile attitude he alleges
they have taken toward south side In
terests, and was called to order by the
chairman. Other speakers included Rev.
I John Brown of the Episcopal church.
Judge J. 8. Noyes, and David Evans,
an Ocean Park capitalist.
The general verdict of the meeting
wus that the only feasible plan of over
coming the sewerage problem Is in the
establishment of a main to connect with
the Los Angeles outfall at Hyperion.
Suit to compel the board to build the
tank Is now In prospect.

MAD HATTER SPOILS FOR FIGHT
BESPATTERED CROWD PLEADS
WITH DAUBERS
Baldheaded Man Receives a Bucket of
Green Fluid on His Bare Pate
and Starts a Brief
Rough House
The contents of a bucket of gray
paint. Judiciously and Impartially dis
tributed over the clothes and counte
nances of more than twenty pedes
trians, proved the Incentive for a small
riot near the Penny Arcade at Fourth
and Spring streets yesterday mornlns
and It required the united efforts of
three police officers to protect the
careless palntert, Henry Oleuon, from
attack.
Oleson was painting beautiful de
signs on the Arcade building yesterday
morning, mingling a dark shade of
gray with a well-mixed tint of green.
His partner manipulated the green
paint at one end of the scaffold while
Oleson smeared on the gray from his
end of the same scaffolding about
twenty feet above the sidewalk.
Spring street In the early hours of
morning is a busy thoroughfare and
hundreds of pedestrians marched past,
all with an upward glance at the
happy painter, who whistled cheer
fully.
Just below the scaffold a hat re
pairer plied his trade and a bootblack
kept those with the muddy shoes in
good humor. Suddenly aB the painter
swung his brush an employe of the
hat-repairing outfit stepped to , the
sidewalk from the doorway of his es
tablishment.
Hatter Wins First Bout
The man's head was devoid of adorn
ment and its bald plnkness shone in
the morning sun. The painter gava
one extra flourish to his brush and a
round, slippery hunk of gray paint,
left the brush, turned two flip-flops !n
the air and, guided by the hand of
fate, hit square on the bald spot of
the hatter. The hatter looked sud
denly skyward just In time to receive
a second splash of paint In one eye.
With a yell of rage he Invited the
painter to descend and discuss the sit
uation.* The punter descended, put up
his hands, while the hatter, thinking
of the damage to his cranium, struck
forth with his fists and damaged the
painter's face.
The painter had nothing further to
say, but by a roundabout method
climbed back to his perch on the scaf
fold and drew the ladder up with him.
As for the hatter, he returned to his
work and scraped off the paint. Five
minutes later the bootblack bowed a
customer to the edge of the doorway
to his stand and asked to brush the
man's clothes. The stand was directly
beneath the end of the scaffold where
on the 3llnger of green paint plied his
trade. As the bootblack whisked his
broom over his customer's clothing a
chunk of green paint landed on his
head.
Still keeping hold of his customer's
collar — for he was brushing that por
tion of his garments — the bootblack
looked skyward to pour forth Insult,
whereupon a second splash of greon
paint sizzled down and, striking the
custotmer at the point where the boot
black had hold of his collar, It tickled
his spinal column and then wiggled
down his back, while the unfortunate
customer squirmed and jumped about.
Hatter Grows Mad
Oleson, who had first dropped the
gray paint, noted the trouble and watt
ed, for his time was soon to come.
The bootblack armed himself with a
heavy shoe-brush and called defiance.
The enraged customer yelled a like
challenge and then the hatter, unfor
tunately for him. concluded that he,
too, was due to get mixed up in tti ■
proceedings.
Without thought of Impending lalam
lty he stepped out of his eatubllshinuitt
to the sidewalk and attempted to an
i.r thiri in Hu Qlaoussjon, Olaaon took
oiid lust look mill then joggf.l ih
luu-krt of gray paint ut his skii> ami
never even looked to nee how true hud
lii-.ii his aim,
The bucket, paint and all, landed
square on the indignant hatter's cran-
Him, the paint trickling down over his
nose and shoulders and the 'bucket
perched on his head like a helmet.' .
For a moment' the air was. blue anil
the painter leaned . down ' and tendered
his excuses'to no avail. .The antics cf
th« • customer, * the- bootblack and- the
hatter attracted a crowd of a hundred
pedestrians to the spot. They enjoyed
the fun until the hatter, oovered with
paint, began to romp among; them and
excitedly tell his troubles. ,
Then there was trouble, for every
man and woman in the crowd received
impartial sections of paint, rubbed into
their clothes from the madly dancing
hatter.
In a moment there were yells that
boded little good for the painter, but
he looked down with a cold and cal
culating eye from his high perch and
smiled benifjnantly.
"Come down a minute," coached one
pedestrian as he surveyed the skirt
of a fine overcoat.
"Naw," grinned the painter.
"Please come down, I want to fell
you something," coaxed another, and
the crowd nodded a sympathetic af
firmative.
"Nix," grinned the painter as he
lighted a cigarette.
"Come down nnd we'll explain this
thing and fix it up," wheedled an elder
ly gentleman whose broadcloth coat
had a neat pattern 0f gray, slimy
paint on Its spinal column.
"Un-nuh," said the painter, with a
wise smile.
About that time there was a con
certed yell of vengeance and the of
ficers arrived on the scene. They
crowded the pedestrians back to the
gutter, the while they also contracted
pieces of paint.
But the troubles were not over, for
a squad of men were at work flushing
the culverts at the corner and the
gutter was running water a foot deep.
When the pedestrians were shoved
back into that dirty fluid and felt the
cold trickle over their shoes, trousers
and ankles, their patience gave out
and they rushed for tho painter who
smiled down at them.
A relief squad of officers cleared the
street and now about fifty be-palnted
men are waiting for the day when they
shall again meet the painter on the
street.
FINDS BOULDER ON
SUSPECT'S PERSON

DISPENSE WITH
ATTORNEYS' AID
WOMEN TRY THEIR OWN CASE
IN COURTS
Justice Young Hae a Weary Time
Listening to Wrangle Over Suit.
Logic of the Conteetants
Startles the Court
Armed with legal document! galore,
which they di.i not understand, and ad
dressing the Judge on subjects of law
ln a manner which he (ailed to appre
ciate, Mrs. Florence <:. I Falkner and
Mrs. Mary McPhetaen, Los Angeles
dressmakers, neither of whom had ever
before been In ■ court room, yesterday
undertook the trial, without aid of at
torneys, of a suit for debt brought by
the one agalngt the other before Jus
tice Young of the township court.
• The cose ha» been continued for some
time pnst by Justice Young In the hope
that th* Women might settle their diffi
culties without carrying the argument
lnto legal circles, . for th« Justice had
his Ideas about ii woman's argument
relative to law and lie feared the meet
lng. / .
Yesterday Mm Falkner, the plain
tiff, appeared In court and announced
herself ready to proceed. The case was
continued until after the Unsold hear
ing had terminated and then the plain
tiff, after counting out the three-dollar
trial fee with great care, proceeded to
march to the attorneys' table, while
Justice Young, with a last despairing
glance for a chance to 'escape, wearily
mounted the bench and began the trial,
Deals Out Double Negative
Mm. Falkner wan the first to be
sworn and n« floon as she took the wit
ness stand she beffan a long statement
of her porsonal dealings with Mrs. Mc-
PheKsen, while the Justice looked on In
awe and oroaslonally attempted to In
terrupt by such exclamations ;ih "Ex
cu«e mo, excuse mo, madam, but that
evidence Is immaterial," but Mrs.
Falkner paid no heed and the court
listened In alienee to the oration.
A bunch of bills, made out by Mrs.
McPhessen, were thnn produced and
Mrs. Falknor started to road them. The
justice Interrupted with the suggegtlon
that according to the rules of law the
defendant might see the papers before
they were Introduced us evidence.
Mrs. McPhesFPn marched forward,
looked at the papers and when asked if
she objected to the papers, nodded her
head and stated:
"I don't owe her no money."
Fifteen minutes were again taken up
before the justice straightened out the
tangle and by explanation and Inuendo
managed to have the papers admitted
as evidence.
The two women had met in Log An
geles and had planned to go to Seattle
and there open an establishment. When
they got as far as San Francisco Mrs.
McPhessen alleges she borrowed $24
from Mm. Falkner, giving, a pawn
ticket for $886, loaned on diamonds, as
security.
Mrs. Falkner had an itemized account
of railroad fare, meals, such as break
faßt, supper and an occasional lunch,
room rent, moving of trunks and in
addition tha Interest on the loan, fig
ured out to a nicety, and the costs of
the suit.
Judge in Despair
The latter had to be stricken from
the bill under protest.
Then the women argued the case in a
manner so thoroughly feminine that the
justice fairly gasped In an attempt to
understand the line' of argument.
One long statement would be made
only to be refuted by the single sen
tence:
"I did not/
When the justice would ask the rea
son the indignant reply would be:
"Just because."
After the reasoning had gone on for
two hours the justice In a wave of de
spair settled the suit by giving the
plaintiff damages for $38.36 and costs.
The defendant's reply was that she
would pay when she got ready, and
she left the court room.
The plaintiff aßked where she could
get the money and what good that
judgment business was going to do her,
and the justice, after begging that the
talkfest be discontinued, suggested
that she swear out an attachment on
judgment.
This Mrs. Falkner did not under
stand, but paid the coßts without a
murmur, living in hope.
As for Justice Young, he cast one
glance after the departing figures of the
attorneys and then with a sigh of re
lief began to read the latest pamphlet
on anti-woman suffrage.
