Couth Pasadena Contractor It Found
in a Dying Condition Following a
Bath in Which a Drug
Had Been Dissolved
Pasadena Agency,
7 North Raymond Avenue,
Phones: Sunset 18U7, Home 2124.
PASADENA, May 26.— Madison A.
Tipton, aged 55 years, a well known
building contractor living on Magnolia
avenue, South Pasadena, lost his life
at a late hour last night while taking a
bath In the bath room of his residence.
He has been somewhat troubled with
rheumatism and has been accustomed
to dissolve a small quantit- of cyanide
of potassium in the water of his bath
before bathing in the belief that the
simple remedy would assist in the cure
of his trouble.
Apparently when he prepared the bath
last night he put too much of the medi
cine in the water, so that its effect upon
the heart was too severe, bringing
death. This is the supposition, at least,
although the coroner will investigate in
a formal way, holding an inquest Mon
day at 3 p. m. at the funeral porlors of
Ives & Warren In this city.
Mr. Tipton lived with hiß wife and
three children, and according to their
statements was in the best of spirits
yesterday. As soon as his condition was
discovered a surgeon was called and for
several hours everything possible was
done to save the dying man's life, but
in vain. There Is no hint of suicide and
the Incident is looked upon as purely

PASADENA, My 26.— Much excite
ment was caused last night by the ex
plosion of a motorcycle on Raymond
avenue near Colorado street. The ma
chine was in flames for a time and
bystanders attempted to extinguish the
flames by the use of their coats. The
owner finally trundled the machine
away to a repair shop without giving
his name.
The funeral services of the late Al
bln Merrill will be held tomorrow at
2:30 p. m. at the Lake Avenue Congre
gational church. Rev. S. G. Emerson
will preach and the local G. A. R. will
have charge. Interment will be at
Mountain View cemetery.
Strain's camp, on the summit of
Mount Wilson, will formally open for
business tomorrow. Advance engage
ments indicate that the approaching
summer season will be the busiest in
the history of the camp.
The employes of the Hotel Maryland
provided elaborate floral emblema_for
the funeral services of Mrs. Theodore
Thompson, wife of one of their num
ber, this afternoon at 246 South Euclid
avenue. Rev. George P. Bird, pastor of
the English Lutheran church, preached

LONG BEACH, May 26.— President
L. W. BUnn of the Bllnn-Roblnson
Lumber company of Los Angeles has
stated that his company would put up
the proposed large mill and plant at
West Long Beach as soon as the con
troversy between the city and the Salt
Lake Railway company has been set
It developed that the Salt Lake Rail
way company recently sent to this city
a prospectus of the deed which they
proposed to place in escrow, giving to
Long Beach certalr rights and privi
leges, but that the document seemed
to the city trustees and city attorney
to be "covered with strings" and not
in accordance with the agreement en
tered into by the railway's representa
tives and the harbor committee of the
chamber of commerce.
The deed has been returned for re
vision. After it has been acceptably
drawn up and placed In escrow the

causing the streets between Fourth and
Eighth, at West Long Beach, to be
formally abandoned. The lumber com
pany will build between these two

who were Injured in last evening's ter
rible automobile wreck at the La
manda Park crossing of the Santa Fe,
are reported from the Pasadena, hos
pital this evening to be out of dan-
EOT. * ■
That they should escape serious in
jury while their comrade should be
almost instantly killed seems little
short of marvelous. But such seems to
bcb be the case. Miss Hart has entirely
recovered consciousness and except for
her severe body bruises and the shock
lsI Is said to be doing finely. . Wold is also
badly bruised, but It appears that no
bones are broken. Both Miss Hart and
Chauffeur Wold corroborated the ac
count of the accident as given in this
morning's Herald. There is consider
able indignation at the manner In
which authentic news of the occurrence
was concealed last night.
The remains of Walter Foster are
at the rooms of Adams, Turner &
Stevens, awaiting the coroner's Inquest,
which will probably be held there at 4
p . m. tomorrow.

who has the arrangements in hand,
will address a number of local young

VENICE, May 26.— Notwithstanding
that this was a muggy day and abso
lutely void of sunshine, a crowd of
probably 7000 persons found plenty to
pass away the time pleasurably, as the
presence of probably half that number
remaining at a late hour this evening
would seem to indicate.
Under the management of James
Kavanagh the Venice White city, pre
viously designated The Midway, was
formally opened to the public and
proved a popular hub for the amuse
ment seekers. An exhibition of Japa
nese athletics by natives of the
chrysanthemum land was the chief at
traction at the grounds and was of a
decidedly meritorious order.
Wrestling, sword contests and wire
work that thrilled the spectators were

Edward Loudenclos Covers Ten Miles
of Completed Trail to Carnegie
Solar Observatory in Forty.
nine Minutes
Special to The Herald.
PASADENA, May 26.— Edward Lou
denclos, astride a Reading Standard
motorcycle, covered the almost ten
miles of the new trail up Mt. Wilson
this forenoon according to his own
figures In exactly 49 minutes.
Returning he arrived at the bottom
of the trail in 45 minutes, stopping five
different times to take photographs.
This Is the first vehicle of the kind
and probably the first wheeled vehicle
of any sort to mount this mlle-hlgh
peak. Friday afternoon the contractor
who has been engaged on the trail for
about a year announced the completion
of his labors. Preparations were be
gun at once for the first complete trip
of the observatory auto-truck to the
summit of the mountain over the trail.
Loudenclos, who is an enthusiastic
young motorcyclist and secretary of the
local club, went part of the way up the
trail some days ago, but was prevented
from reaching the top by the blasting
which was still going on there. At 8
o'clock this forenoon he left his home

trip. By 11 a. m. he was back>with the
story of his success.
Visitors at the Mt. Wilson hotel on
the summit were astonished at about
9 o'clock to hear the chug-chug of a
motorcycle on the trail, then the ma
chine shot into sight, the driver calmly
navigating the various lesser trails
around the hotel and then caimiy with
out more than a smile at the entlrus*
iasm of the crowd disappearing again
down the trail toward the foot of the
mountain. Manager Beard endeavored
to stop the motorcyclist, expecting to
congratulate him on his feat and to
give him the seat of honor at the hotel

Intent on making the round trip in
record time, and according to advices
did so with a vengeance.
He states that he experienced very
little if any difficulty in making either
the ascent or the descent and found
the trail In excellent condition. His
success Is expected to lead v other ad
venturesome spirits to attempt the trail
on motorcycles.
Manager Beard, now sole owner of
the Mt. Wilson hotel, offers properly to
entertain the first automobile party
which shall mount the new trail. It
looks as though the burro trains up
Mt. Wilson are about doomed before
the march of this up-to-date means of
passenger and freight transportation.

PASADENA, May 28.- The Crown
City was visited by a genuine back
east thunder storm this afternoon, ac
companied by a considerable fall of
rain. At intervals during the after
noon the flash of lightning and the roll
of thunder were vivid reminders of the
April shower* «o common outside of
California. In the mountains rain fell
in torrents driving hundreds of pic
nickers to shelter.
During tho storm a number of fuses
were burned out about the city and
at least one flre was directly traceable
to the lightning flashes. At about 5:30
this evening, during the liveliest ex
hibition of celectlal fireworks, the flre
department received a call from the
millionaire home of Charles P. Wil
liams at the northeast corner of Buena
Vista street find Meridian avenue. This
Is Just outside the city limits, but at
the suggestion of Mayor Earley, Chief
Clifford sent out the chemical engine to
render assistance. It was discovered
that lightning communicating through
the elecVric light wires had set flre
to a portion of the wall. Owing to the
difficulty of reaching the smoldering
flre it took some time to extinguish the
blaze, but it was done at last and with
only a nominal loss.
This Incident served to remind the
South Pasadena neighborhood of its
urgent need for better flre protection

of the County Weekly Press associa

In a characteristic address he told them
that although as yet he considered Ven

that he has set for it.

George Glover of the press association
the wishes of the association that he
live long and happily and that he carry
with him its further evidence of esteem
for him in the handsome "gold watch

Apparently Just as he was about to re
pume his seat Mr. Gabel remembered
something more, and again iddresßltig
Mr. Glover presented him with a "solid

the railway company. The presents,
which were of the mock variety and
worth together about two bits, elicited

of the breakwater into the sea by Mrs.

leaning on the railing which surrounds

broke and slipped through her fingers.
Several of the members of the Ha

had experience in diving for shells In
their native land, discussed diving for
the treasure, but were dissuaded by
their fellow musicians, who believed
that the rocky bed Into which the bag
sunk offered too many dangers to make
a try at its recovery worth while.
The bag, Mrs. Steely said, contained
$15 in currency, several pieces of costly
jewelry and numerous keepsakes and
correspondence of value to her only.

LONG BEACH, May 26.— Fred Har
vey Brown, an electrician, of 806 Main
street, this city, has just perfected an
apparatus whereby phonograph music
can be heard by a wireless device by
any one who wears it and by no one
else. The company owning the Long
Beach skating rink is contemplating
placing a Victor phonograph in the
center of the large rink and arrang
ing with Brown to furnish his patent
transmitters to all skaters so that they
can get the benefit of the music. The
phonograph would bo started as in an
ordinary talking machine, but only
those who place the wire coll on their
heads and have the transmitters at
tached to their ears can hear the
music under Brown's arrangement.
Pasadena capitalists have taken
Brown's device urffler consideration
and may decide, It is reported, to place
the apparatus in a large playhouse in
Los Angeles. Manikins of the various
famous singers will be constructed to.
lend realistic effect, it is said, if the
latter scheme is carried out.
