ALL OBSTACLES SAN PEDRO ANNEXATION STILL POSSIBLE Strong Effort Will Be Made at Sacra. mento to Get an Amended BUI Passed Permitting Consolidation Los Angeles and San Pedro may yet have an opportunity of voting on the question of consolidation. There Ib a strong probability that the legislature, before final adjournment next week, will pass Senator Savage's bill with slight amendments, making it possible for Lob Angeles and the harbor city to consolidate, providing' the propo sition Is favored by a majority of the voters of the respective cities. lt became known yesterday that a deputy In the office of District Attorney Fredericks left Monday night for Sac ramento for the purpose of attempting to have passed by the legislature during the closing days of the session a bill which will enable the cities of Los An geles and San Pedro to hold an election to decide the question of consolidation. This deputy, it Is said, went to the state capital as the representative of the Los Angeles chamber of commerce. The fact that he has gone to Sacra mento has not been advertised by those •who were aware of his mission, arid neither has announcement been made that he Is going as the representative or at the suggestion of the chamber of commerce. lt Is confidently asserted, however, that the visit is the result of an effort on , the part of the chamber of com merce to cause the legislature to pass the consolidation bill, with certain amendments, before adjournment next week. The nature of the amendments sought is not known, but it Is thought that the desired changes are the removal of several of the drastic provisions, or lessening them to some extent, con cerning the number of signatures re quired to petitions calling for a special election to vote on the question of consolidation and for a reduction In the two-thirds vote necessary for rati fication. No one connected with the consoli dation work even would admit yester day that another effort would be made to have the legislature pass- an amended bill. The law committee of the consolida tion commission yesterday submitted to Judge Hunsaker, representing the chamber of commerce, several 'points regarding the status at Wilmington, and It is expected that the committee will make a report tomorrow or Satur day on the v advisability of proceeding with the work of bringing about the consolidation of Wilmington with Los Angeles through the disincorporate of the inner harbor city. • -; / ; ■ , LOS ANGELES W. C. T. U. WILL ELECT OFFICERS The Los Angeles Women's Christian Christian Temperance union will elect Its officers for the new year at the First Methodist church today. The officers will be elected at the morning session, which begins at 10 o'clock. The meet ing will continue all day. The Lob Angeles union is said to be the largest in the world. When the last national convention was held the local union was awarded the white silk banner as being the largest In the world. Its membership at that time was 1000, and although deaths and re movals and the forming of new unions have depleted this number to about 800 it is still the largest in the world. Mrs. Lucy Blanchard, who for fifteen years has stood at the head of the so ciety, will probably succeed herself aa president. She waa the first president of the union when It was organized in 1892. RAILWAYS ARE MUCH DAMAGED WASHOUTS AND LANDSLIDES DELAY TRAINS Through Traffic on Salt Lake Tempo rarily Suspended — Cajon Pasa Reported Clear — Santa Fe Bridge Threatened Softened tracks, landslides, washouts and weakened bridges made it hard going- for the railroads yesterday, al though conditions were better than on the preceding day. At San Fernando tunnel, on the Southern Pacific, be tween San Fernando and Nowhall, a landslide occurred which probably will not be cleared until tomorrow noon. Two hundred men were at work last night, but the hundreds of tons of earth and rock which rolled down the track make the clearing slow work.. At Barstow much damage was done to a bridge on the Santa Fe by the Mojave river. Two piers of the bridge were washed away. Tuesday traffic < was stopped In the valley, but yes terday transfers were made at Bar- Htow and part of the schedule was run. A squad of 100 men working all Tues day night cleared Cajon pass by 6 o'clock yesterday morning. Long pro cessions of trains were waiting on both sides of the landslide, but progress was slow all along the line on account of the soft roadbeds and patched up wash outs. The schedule on the coast line of the Southern Pacific Is badly upset. While no very serious damage has been caused by the storm, the weakening of the grades and bridges has slowed travel so none of the rains have been on time. 1 • Through truffle is blocked by the sub merging of all the tracks at Elgin, Nov. All through trains will have to bc annulled. Salt Lake through traf flo already Is nearly a week behind and it probably will delay it another week. Three trains returned yesterday morning, having been recalled with all the other eastern trains which . had left, . The New Orleans line of the South ern Pacific was a heavy sufferer from the storm In the Colorado desert. The deluge of ; rain . and the rising of the Salt,. ii sea, submerging the tracks, de layed trains, but did - not destroy any « ' the tracks * SAGKIIVGr ORE Only a Few Shares Left at 6 Cents — Get in on the Ground Floor.

Phone Home AB7Ol Los Angeles, Cal. Phone Home AB7Ol "THE WOMAN WITH THE HOE" CREATES SOMETHING OF A SENSATION SUBURBAN 1 TOWN IS BADLY TORN UP Dispute Between the Keltys and the Bartholomols Results in an AI. leged Assault and Will Be Settled In Court If Millet, the creator of "The Man With the Hoe," could have taken a day off from the land of shadow a few days ago and could have Journeyed to the vicinity of Graham station he might have found the sentiment for a modern ized creation entitled "The Woman With the Hoe." At any rate, he would have, found sentiment for a lively picture of some kind, no matter whether he called It the Battle of Waterloo or some other name. Yesterday, as a result of the scene which has disrupted both the political and social world of Graham station, Mrs. Emma Bartholomol ap plied at the district attorney's office for a warrant of arrest, charging Mrs. Dora Kelty with battery. The warrant was Issued and Mrs. Kelty will be tried before Justice Stephens of the township court. But In the meantime half the people of Gra ham station are calling each other "mean things" over the row between the Keltys and the Bartholomols, and the peace of the little station has been disrupted. , According to the story told yesterday by Mrs. Bartholomol to Assistant Dis trict Attorney McComas, on the morn ing of February 24 she was taking a stroll along 1 one of the boulevards of Graham station and was admiring the beautiful bronze statues when she hap pened to pass by the Kelty home. Members of the Kelty family were out in the front yard chasing the grass hoppers off the buttercup bushes, and Mrs. Bartholomoi turned and glanced toward them. Wheher or not she raised her lorgnette or not to lpok at the maneuvers of the Keltys she did not state. She did state that she made some remark to her escort about how nice the weather was and that Mrs. Kelty Instantly imagined tli.n the re mark had been made about the Keltys. Words ensued — words of anger and re proach—and Kelty Is alleged to have said something to Mrs. Bartholomol, and then Mrs. Bartholomol said some thing to Kelty and Kelty said some thing back, and Mrs. Bartholomol's escort said Kelty had no right to talk to Mrs. Bartholomol that way. There upon, according to the allegations of the complaining witness, Kelty con vexed his flat in the direction of the escort's face, causing precipitate dodg ing by the escort. It ia further alleged by Mrs. Bar tholomol that Kelty seized a hoe with which he had been knocking rattle snake* off the lemon vines and was about to hack his initials In her escort when she Interfered by shouting that the man with her wan an invalid and that being in that condition he ought not be hit on the head with the hoe for fear it might hurt him. Kelty agreed with her* and the hos tilities were about to terminate, when, according to the allegations <xr the cuniiilalnt Hied yesterday, Mrt, with a ahout of "Well, you art: nut an invalid," swung the hou in a direct line for Mrs. Bartbolomoi'* liuad. ' missed, but on the return the huu LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING. MARCH 7. 1907. landed on Mrs. Bartholomoi's shoulder and caused physical and mental pain. The affair was reported to the chief of police of Graham station and he consulted with the mayor, and a com mittee of adjustment was appointed to arrange the affair. That was a week ago, and since that time Mrs. Bar tholomol has been waiting an apology and a settlement. There has been none forthcoming and the complaining witness alleges that Mrs. Kelty recently stated that it was too bad the blow had not landed better. Now they will thrash it out In court, and Graham station will relapse from Its throes of desperate excitement. WORK IN SIGHT FOR THE SMELTER RHYOLITE WANTS TO SHIP ORE SOUTH Mine Owners of Nevada Are Greatly Interested in the Construction of the Big Works at San Pedro « Special to The Herald. RHYOL.ITE, Nev., March 6.— 8. F. Taylor, president of the Rhyollte board of trade, in his report Just before leav ing for the east on a tour In the inter ests of the Rhyolite board of trade, said: "There never has been a time In the history of the district in which the city of Rhyollte was as prosperous as it is now. There are more miners at work in the mines today than there ever has been before and the supplies, ma chinery and hoists that are coming in daily more than fill the capacity of the road. Mr. Warm has stated that he will send no more cars In after the 10th of the month until the congestion of the yard is lessened. "The Echo Lee district, twenty-five miles south of the city, Is also in excel lent shape. There have been rich strikes on the Lee Gold Grotto and upon the Echo Lee properties, while the consolidation of the Burro interests will enable active mining to begin on that property at once. Railway Makes Promise* "The telephone rate to the Pacific coast has been cut to 50 cents for ten word messages by personal order of Clowry of"New York and Sunta Fe of ficials have assured me that they will enter into no rate agreements with the Salt Lake that will be detrimental to Rhyolite Interests in Southern Califor nia. " I have urged the building of the Sun Pedro smelter for the purpose of saving from one hundred to two hundred miles in the hauling distance to the smelters, for the engineers of the Las > Vegas & Tonopah railroad gave an estimate of 8 0,000 tons of shipping ore when the road was first talked of, and with that much ore In the mines a hundred miles on each ton will make a large differ sties to the shipper In his cost price, -'i. "The spur track on the Montgomery- Shoshone line is :.. practically , complete I ft X la^k f^ I ■ ■ t * - bT*i.^Lw m- ' - r r -f m\ and all that is needed now 1* the lay ing of the steel to make that line com plete. This will mean that the ship ment of the $1,000,000 dump of the great mine will begin at one.'. The new strike In the West Extension will mean that a boom in stocks may be expected bo fore the spring is over, as the Bullfrog Teddy also has been Bhowtng up In a way that has caused a fluster in the market, even this early in the spring."
