Board of Public Works and Railway
Company Agree to Construct a
New Bridge at Arroyo
de los Posos
Members of tho King's Highway Im
provement association held a meeting at
the association's hall, Brooklyn avenue
and Enchandia street, last night for the
purpose of hearing the report of the com
mittee recently appointed to interview the
board of public works on tho subject of a
new bridge at the Arroyo de los Posos.
This is the famous death dip curve where
the fatal accident on the Pacific Electric
road occurred last August.
According to the report made by J. N.
Seeres, Alfred Wllholt, J. Jassaud, F. A.
Markott and Charles Paul, the committee,
a definite date will be set for the work
to begin as soon as Attorney Dunn of tha
Pacific Electric returns to Los Anpreles.
The street railway company has already
consented to the change being mane and,
according to the committee, the members
the board have also agreed that the
work should now go ahead.
Plans Are Drawn
In a letter written to Chief Engineer
George E. Pillsbury of the Pacific Electric
by Horace B. Ferris, secretary of the
board of public works, it is stated that the
city engineer has for several months had
plans for a new bridge, and only awaits
formal notice, to have the work started.
"The street railway company has been
fair In all offers It has made," said Mr.
Wilhoit last night. "Its officers seem to
know the dangerous character of the
curve there and wish to have it elimin
ated. The board of purjllc works has noi
come to the front In this matter the way
It should, but the residents of this vicin
ity now hope they have seen that It is
necesary to have some change made and
will not delay any longer."
At the request of the members of the
improvement association a police call box
was placed on Brooklyn and Enchandia
streets yesterday. The members of tho
association have been striving during the
last year to have a box placed In this
In a suit filed yesterday in the super
ior court Mrs. Rettie Miller asks $20 000
damages from the Pacific Electric Rail
way company for the loss of her hus

Fourth street car. /
The complaint charges that the de
fendant on May 5 purposely, recklessly
and unlawfully caused Its car to run
clown hill on a sloping grade at a speed
exceeding twenty miles an hour.
It is further alleged that there was no
■warning bell, nor was any attempt
made to check the speed of the car,

Petty Crime
Harrison Oliver was sentenced to
serve seven years' Imprisonment at San
Qucntin yesterday, having been con
victed last week of stealing 800 pounds
of copper wire from tho United States
Telephone company.
Oliver has served several terms In the
penitentiary and when arraigned for
sentence attempted to make it appear
that he had been imposed upon in the
present case, but Judge Smith was of a
different opinion and said:
"Never in my experience on the bench
have I met a defendant that could put
up so lngeViious a defense as you. Ihe
story that yqu told the judge hero is
tho best piece of fiction that I have
heard for some time.
"I don't believe that there Is a lawyer
in this city that could arrange a bet-
e in°Tho trial Oliver claimed to have
received the wire from a traveling
junkman, whose wagon had broken
down in front of the prisoner's house
and the next day Oliver came to Los
Angeles from Santa Monica, where he
was living, and arranged to sell It. He
was captured just as he was about to
sign a receipt for tho money.
This part of the transaction ho at
tempted to explain by saying that his
supposed friend, the traveling junkman,
could not write.

Mrs. L. H. Houston, who resides at

the little cottage property In which the
family lived. Shortly after this the
house burned down and there was no
insurance. . Following this came the
death of her oldest son and in the In
terim and twice since William, the
missing 1 boy, met with serious acci
dents, both of which involved medical
treatment and long confinement to his
The mother Is afraid that he has met
with another accident of some kind, as

his personal safety and in play and
boyish adventure takes chances which
the ordinary boy would not think of.

Attempted to Pass Through Gas Com.
pany's Yard in the Dark and
Meets with Awful
A man whose name is supposed to be
Cochran fell or walked into a vat or pit
cf boiling water at the works of the Los
Angeles Gas and Electric company at
Aliso and Vignes streets shortly after 9
o'clock last night, and was so badly
burned about his lower limbs, hips and
abdomen that he will probably die.
For nearly three-quarters of an hour
after the accident happened Cochran was
kept lying on the ground at the gas works
suffering excruciatingly because of tho
inability of the hospital to send promptly
an ambulance to remove him, and it was
not until after a call had been sent to
Bresee Bros, for a conveyance that the
sufferer could be moved from the spot
and taken to where he could be given
relief and surgical attention. In the mean
time, despairing, of the coming of the
emergency and general hospital ambu
lance, the police patrol was sent for, but
by the time it arrived there the Bresee
ambulance had taken tho man away.
According to the employes of the gas
company nothing was known of Cochran
until they heard his screams for help.
Two or three workmen ran into the yard,
where the carbon pits are located, and
found the man rolling In agony on tho
ground. It needed no explanation to tell
what had happened him. The near by pit
of boiling water on the edge of which he
was lying, and the cooked appearance of
his limbs was enough. In some way
Cochran had walked or fallen into the pit
and received his burns. The vats are
level with the ground and uncovered. It
Is probable that in passing through the
grounds Cochran in the dark walked Into
the pit. After he had scrambled out and
before help came to him he had managed
to tako off his trousers and undergar
Nothing Is known of who Cochran is,
and the only information obtainable about
him is that he is supposed to have rela
tives living at 232 East First street. There
was no one at home there last night to
give any information concerning him.
Superior Court Judges Hutton and Wil
bur left on their vacations yesterday.
Presiding Judge Monroe started for Eu
rope earlier in the week.
Judgo Hutton will not go away this
summer, spending the most of the time
at his Santa Monica home, busy with
submitted casts. He expects to pass part
of the time fishing at Catallna.
Judge Wilbur will take his Sunday
school class of boys on a camping trip
in the mountains, where they will study
spineless cacti.
On account of the large amount of busi
ness on hand, It has been arranged to
have three departments of the superior
court in session all through the summer.
A complaint was issued by Deputy Dis

which he owed to Carmean.

At 3:35 o'clock yesterday morning Pa
trolman McCart, while walking his beat
on South Main street, discovered a fire in
the rear of the store at No. 533, occupied
by the Fields Paint company. He at once
telephoned an alarm to the fire depart
ment, and shortly after, as the firei
seemed to be gaining headway, he turned
in a box alarm.
The fire department made a slow run to
the scene and before the arrival of the
apparatus the officer discharged his re
volver in the air to attract the attention
of other policemen. Sergeant Kriege and
five officers hurried to the scene and the
situation was explained.
The officers then broke In the rear door
of the paint establishment and with a
number of buckets Secured from an empty
building adjoining they formed a bucket
brigade from a near-by hydrant, and by
the time of the arrival of the fire depart
ment had the blaze under control.
Several barrels of linseed oil, one of
which was on fire, were removed from
the building by the officers to prevent an
explosion and the consequent spreading
of the flames. The loss to the establish
ment is estimated at $100.
When fined $10 by Justice Summerfield
yesterday. Kid Solomon laconically re
marked that his troubles had begun when
he was defeated by Abe Attell in a recent
twenty round bout.
"Kid" was arrested Monday by Deputy
Constable Glllls on a warrant sworn to
by J. Cunningham, who testified In the
trial that he had seen the pugilist shoot
anrl kill an oriole some weeks ago, while
training for the light with Attell.
Solomon denied shooting at the Balti
more warbler, saying that he had found
the dead bird and carried it to the train-
Ing quarters, where, he declared, Cun
ningham was employed as dishwasher.
After the fight he had discharged the
kitchen mechanic, and in revenge, Solo
mon averred, his erstwhile employe had
brought the charge.
"How could he see me kill anything."
protested Kid, "when he was washing
pots when I went hunting?"
He smiled when the fine was Imposed,
and remarked as he paid it that it was a
mere trifle.
The wedding of Maude Gilbert and
Harry J. Ginn, both of the Burbank stock
company, which was announced as immi

evidently an event of the Immediate fu

delphia, came to Los Angeles yesterday,
and in an unguarded moment announced
that she was here to act in the ca-pacity
of bridesmaid at the happy event.
Neither Miss Gilbert, her sister nor Mr.
