PLUNGES INTO A CANYON Youth Falls from a Trestle Over Arroyo Drops Over Seventy Feet but Sustains Only Scratches Narrowly Escapes Being Run Over by a Street Car, and to Save Him self He Holds to Edge of Bridge To face death in two horrible forma within a period of five minutes, to plung-e seventy feet through space from the Arroyo Seco trestle to the ground below and yet escape injury other than n few bruises and scratches. Such was the experience of Roy Frame, the 20 year-old son of James Frame, 79 South Marengo street, last night. The elder Frame Is retired from busi ness and his son attends school In Los Angeles. Last night the boy on his return from Los Angeles left the car to visit friends, and later undertook to walk to his home. He followed the car track until he reached the trestle over the ArroVo Seco, Just west of the os trich farm. The trestle Is about two blocks long and spans the arroyo at a point where the gulch is seventy feet deep. Frame started to cross in the dark ness. It was then about 10 o'clock, and when half way over he saw the gleam of the headlight of a car as it rounded the curve behind him and come speeding toward him. In a frantic attempt to escape the lad dashed forward across the trestle. For i dozen yards or more his flying feet caught the ties, and then in the dark ness he slipped and one foot shot down between the heavy timbers and he plunged forward to his face. For it moment he lay stunned and then munaged to crawl to the edge of the trestle and let himself down over tne edge. He could not see below him for the Intense darkness, but he knew what was there — shrubbery, trees and sharp rocks — and he clung desperate ly to the ties while the trestle trem lilcd and swayed with the jarring of the cars then upon It. For a moment more the lad main tained his hold and then suddenly his fingers Rave way, his nails tore at the wood and with a scream he Bhot down ward. A passenger saw tho body drop from sight and as soon as possible an ambulance was hurried from Pasa dena. The boy was found in the brush be low. How he escaped death in the depth and darkness is a miracle, but aside from a few bruises and scratches no Injuries can be found on his body. It Is thought that the branches of a tree might have broken his fall, but the youth remembers nothing from the time he let go until he struck in the brush and rolled over in the bed of the arroyo.

PRICE: \ n *"l.?V n :;V"\ 65 CENTS DEMOCRA TS SAY NO TO PROPOSITION OF ARBITRATION PLAN TO DROP CANDIDATE FAILS Non-Partisans Would Have Mayoral y Contest Made Simpler by the E'iminati >n of One of the Nominees, but Harper's Friends Refuse to Accept the Idea An effort on thn part of thR non partisan committee was made yester day to bring about a trlpnrtlte agree ment to nrbltrnto ns to which two of the thrrn lending candidates for mayor should withdraw In favor of the third. The Democratic city executive* com mittee litte lust night declared that they would not submit to arbitration the question as to whether their nom inee for mayor, A. C. Harper, should withdraw from the race. As a result, the effort of .the non partisans failed at the start and the conditions between the Republicans and the non-partisans remain as they have existed for several days. Future Developments Uncertain Whether nny further efforts at ar bitration between these parties will be made could not be learned last night. At a meeting of the non-partisan ex ecutive committee yesterday afternoon It was decided to make the proposition to the executive committees of the Re publican and Democratic parties to ar bitrate on the question as to which of the three nominees, Lee C. Gates, Dr. Walter Llndley oe A. C. Harper, should withdraw In favor ot the third. Identical letters were sent to the chairmen of the respective city com mittees. Chairman D. C. McQarvin for the Republicans said that he would call a meeting of his committee today. The Democratic committee was In session when the letter was handed Dr. D. W. Edelman, the chairman, and after extended consideration an answer was framed, positively refusing to en tertain the suggestion of arbitration. Offer of Arbitration Made Following is a copy of the letter which was addressed to the respective chairmen of the Republican and Dem ocratic city central committees: "Nov. 15, 1906.— D. C. McGarvin, chair man Republican city central commit tee, and Dr. Walter Lindley, Repub- lican candidate for mayor; and Dr. D. W. Edelman, chairman Demo cratic city central committee, and Mr. A. C. Harper, Democratic can didate for mayor: "Gentlemen — The executive" commit tee of the non-partisan city party of the city of Los Angeles and Lee C. Gates, the non-partisan candidate for mayor, realizing that the number of candidates for mayor might prove dangerous and having In mind only the Industrial peace of the city of Los Angeles, hereby present and offer to arbitrate the question as to whether two of the candidates for mayor on the Republican, Democratic and non-par tisan tickets shall be withdrawn. "To this end this committee proposes as follows: That the Republican city central committee appoint two persons; that the Democratic city central com mittee appoint two persons; that this committee appoint, two persons; that the persons so appointed shall select a seventh person, the said seven per sons to constitute an arbitration board. "That each of the candidates be al lowed to appear before said board and present his claims to said board; that after such hearing, said arbitration board decide which one of said candi dates for mayor shall remain on the ballot to be voted at the city election, and which two of said candidates shall withdraw their, names from the ballot. "Executive committee of the non partisan city central committee. "J. A. FOSHAY, Chairman. "M. LISSNER, Secretary. "LEE C. GATES." Democrats Say No Late last night the Democratic com mittee sent the following negative reply to the non-partisan committee: "LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15.— James A. Fashay, chairman, and M. Llssner, sec >etary, executive committee of the non partisan city central committee, and Lee C. Gates: "Gentlemen — Your communication of this date addressed to the executive committee of the Democratic city cen tral committee and to A. C. Harper, Democratic candidate for mayor, rela tive to the formation of an arbitration committed to decide upon the with drawal of two of the mayoralty candi dates of the Republican, non-partisan and Democratic parties,, has been re ceived, and we beg to state that the same has been referred to the executive committee of the Democratic city cen tral committee, who direct us to reply thereto as followes: "The Democratic party of this city has unanimously chosen A. C. Harper as its candidate for mayor. His charm of personal character, his honorable career as a citizen of this city for nearly forty years and his wsl known ability as a business man fit him to be an Ideal mayor of this city during the next three years, when vast enter prises are to be undertaken by our municipality. "To allow his withdrawal voluntarily or as the possible result of the finding of a committee of arbitration would deprive the voters of this city of their cherished desire to see him elected mayor. "Believing as we do that the majority of the voters of this city desire the elec tion of Mr. Hurper. we can see no rea son why he should arbitrate his right tf this office, with a possibility that his withdrawal would be, compelled by such a committee— a possibility which we oannot for one moment consider.

Respectfully, "E. O. EDOERTON, "W. T. CRAIG, "D. W. EDELMAN, Chairman. "JAMES C. HANLEY, Secretary." Presented to the Chairman After the meeting of the non-parti san executive committee duplicate copies of the Identical letter were pre pared, Marshall Stlmson took one of the copies to the headquarters of the Republican city central committee and handed It personally to Chairman Mc- Garvin. After rending the communication Mr. McGarvin said that a dectnton as to arbitration would rest with Dr. Llndley, but that a meeting of the city executive committee would be held Saturday to consider the subject. Secretary Llssner of the non-partisan committee took the other copy to the headquarters of the Democratic com mittee and found that ctfmmlttee In session. He placed the communication In the hands of Chairman Edelman and then withdrew. The committee, which was considering campaign af fairs of a general nature and had no previous warning that the question of arbitration would be sprung upon it, at once dropped nil otljer subjects and took up the non-partisan proposal. Late last night Dr. Lindley was called up at his residence and Informed of the developments of the evening. He declared that It was news to him, and that while he had heard the inti mation that a move of some kind was on, he had not been informed as to its exact nature. Asked as to his possible action, he said he preferred not to discuss the subject at present. Secretary Llssner said last night that the non-partisan executive committee was led to include the Democrats in the arbitration plan by reason of the fact that many of those who have pledged themselves to support the non partisan' ticket are Democrats- and that in Justice to them the head of the Democratic ticket should be asked to place himself upon the same high plane of civic patriotism. Made Public by Gates Mr. Gates gave to the press the first intimation that a three-cornered arbi tration proposition had beeji devised by the non-partisan executive committee. The announcement was made by Mr. Gates during the cpurse of a speech at a meeting held by the First Ward Non partisan club at Downey avenue and Avenue Twenty-one, and It caused a lively sensation in the audience which almost completely filled the hall. Mr. Gates had made a characteristic speech, in which he argued in his usual vigorous manner for non-partisan ac tion in civic affairs and the divorce ment of party politics In the municipal government of Los Angeles. He then repeated the statement made the night previous at the meeting held in Akey hall at Vernon and Central avenues regarding the original proposi tion for arbitration between Dr. Lind ley and himself and which was pub lished In yesterday's Herald. He de clared that after the non-partisan ex ecutive committee had decided that it could not, in justice to the 8000 and over of those who had signed pledges to support the non-partisan ticket, sub mit the question to arbitration, again met two days ago, at which time the committee again agreed upon the same verdict. Tells the News During the past two days, however, further pressure had been brought to bear upon the committee. "I will now divulge something that will appear In the press tomorrow," continued Mr. Gates, "and that is that the executive committee of the non partisans held a meeting this afternoon and decided to submit to both the Republican and the Democratic city central committees a proposition to arbitrate as to which of two of the three candidates should retire in favor of the third and make that candidate's I election an absolute certainty. This course shows the brqadmtndedness nnd the spirit of patriotism with which the members of that committee are Im bued." The audience, which hud sat silent. realizing the import of the statement, broke into vigorous applause and with declarations that the non-partisan nominee would be the one to remain in the field. Mr. Gates soon afterward left for a meeting at 2115 East First street, which had been addressed by Ben Ward and M. T. Collins pending the arrival of Mr. Gates. The non-partisan nominee for mayor was equally heartily re ceived at this meeting, at which he made practically the same speech arid statement made at the First ward meeting. At the close of Mr. -Gates' speech on Downey (avenue R. W. Dromgold, nominee for the council from the Flrßt ward, spoke and he was followed by Mr. Ward. Each of the speakers was well received. Sunday night Mr. Gates will be the principal speaker of the evening at Bethlehem mission, Vlgnes and Du commum streets. Rev. Dana W. Bartlett, non-partisan nominee for councilman from the Eighth ward and the pastor of the Bethlelu !•! mission, also will deliver an address. Mr. Gates and Rev. Bartlett will dis cuss non-partlaanahlp In civic affairs from an ethical viewpoint, and it Is expected that Bethlehem mission will not be large enough to contain the audience which will lie attracted to hear the discussion. At talks' hall on South Spring street tomorrow night Mr. Gates and Ben Ward are scheduled to speak.

SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 15.— Two men are dead, two others dying and another seriously in jured as the result of a deadly pis tol duel tonight in the attempted holdup of a saloon by two masked robbers. Shortly before 10 o'clock to night two men with handkerchiefs over their faces and revolvers in their hands entered the saloon of John O'Connell at Sixth and Brannan streets. One of them came in by the Sixth street en trance and the other through the Brannan street door and immedi ately ordered those present to throw up their hands. Twelve men were in the saloon at the time, including the bar tender, John O'Connell. a nephew of the proprietor. All complied with the order given by the masked men except Ctaorge O'Connell, a retired and pensioned police officer, who drew his revolver and commenced shooting at the robber near the Sixth street etnrance. Seeing the gun flash in O'Con nell's hand, the robber began fir ing at the plucky ex-policeman at almost the same moment. While tNfe two men were engaged in the deadly duel that followed, the second robber began shooting at the patrons of the saloon that were standing with their hands above their heads. Duel Quickly Over The entire affair lasted but a few moments. When the smoke of the battle cleared away, four men were lying on the floor of the saloon, three of them dying and the fourth seriously injured, O'Connell with two bullets in his chest ; Stephen Lynch, twice shot in the abdomen; Louis Delatour, with his jaw torn away by a bul let, and Michael Kennedy, shot in the ear. From the Sixth street door a trail of blood led across the street to the sidewalk opposite the sa loon, where was found one of the robbers with his mask still on, dead, with two bullets fired by O'Connell in his chest. The sec ond robber escaped and the police are scouring the city for him to night. The dead man was identified by Detective Sergeant ODea and Detective Reagan as Frank Burke, an ex-convict recently re leased from San Quentin and who was well known to the po lice in the south of Market street district. O'Connell died soon after being taken to the central emergency hospital, where it is said that Lynch and Delatour, both labor ers, cannot recover. Kennedy's wound, while serious, is not nec essarily fatal. O'Connell, the dead ex-police man, served twenty years in the police department of this city and has a splendid record for bravery. He was retired and pensioned about two years ago. TABLE OF TEMPERATURE > City. Mia.
