William Stephen* Return* from East.
em Trip and Notes Factor*
Which Insure Prosperity
of Lot Angele*
William Stephens, president of tho Los
Angeles chamber of commerce, arrived
in Los Angeles Tuesday night after an
absence of almost a month in t>i east.
Mr. Stephens was in Saratoga part of
the time, attending the triennial Knights
Templar conclave, and also working to
get the conclave of 1910 for Los Angeles.
While Mr. Stephens and his committee
were unsucce3sful,— Chicago getting the
next conclave— their work this year will
probably insure the :neet!ng of Knights
Templar hero three years liter.
The admiration of "the east" for Los
Angeles and California, Mr. Stephens ue
clares is becoming more pronounced every
day. The vote In favor of securing Owens
river water also occasioned many con
gratulations for this city. Mr. Stephens
said, "The people in the east are Just as
much In love with California as ever, and
a good deal more. I had more personal
Inquiries from people who wanted to
know about our state than on any
previous trip.
Local Confidence in Evidence
"The remark that Is common every
where is about our Owens river election.
No matter where I went, tne people said,
'There must be something back of a city
. • votes unanimously on such a big
* There is purely something to
[f they have $23,000,000 confidence
, •¦• . «».'
V El g that has brought Los
Angeles ; r.i u.ularly to the attention of
the east. • is the Shrine council and
Fiesta. I met hundreds of Shrlneiw and
friends of Shrlners who had spoken di
rectly to them, who were amazed at the
wonderful entertainment, and surprised
that a city the size of Los Angeles could
provide such a sumptuous reception for
bo rany guests.
"Los Angeles is getting a goodly share
of the eastern emigrants. Trains west
bound are full of passengers. As an
example, although we telegraphed two
days ahead, and tried in every way to
get lower berths, we did not succeed.
They had all been engaged, from Chicago
to Los Angeles.
¦'*! think that California will get a
great price for her fruits and grain this
year. In the east, the fruit crop is seem
ingly ait ¦ absolute failure. Wheat and
corn are bo.'h moderate.
Climate Is Big Factor
"The weather in Saratoga during the
conclave was the most delightful that
could ever have happened.— ln a city
back east. But still, never before on my
eastern trips have I been so glad to get
back home. I come back more favor
ably Impressed with our city than ever
before, far beyond any other trip.
"Why? Well, first because of an
equable climate that lets a man sleep at
night. It is my pet hobby that Los An
geles is the finest summer resort on
earth. Nowhere else can one enjoy all
the arlvanta. ~s of a first class city and
yet sleep comfortably every night.
"Then, secondly, we generally have fair
crops. Third, there is a better class of
people here, aa a whole, than In any
other city in the United States. Los An
geles takes a good man r.nd his family
from every city in the coui.try, often the
best man in tho city.
"And lastly, I am glad .0 gnt back to
a city that has J23.000.000 confidence in
herself. The contintred growth of tho
city Is beyond any question, and I
wouldn't try > estimate a limit on it,
because there It no limit."
FAILURE OF AUTOMATIC
LIGHT CAUSES ACCIDENT

Head-on Collision

slightly injured In a head-on collision be
tween Downey avenue cars at San Fer
nando and Ann streets yesterday morn
ing.
The collision Is said to have been caused

BOARD DROPS NEW
MILK INSPECTOR
CURL WAS TOO LENIENT WITH
DAIRYMEN
Only Two Men Remain on Eligible
List and They Do Not Relish
Serving as City's Dairy
Sleuths
The board of health yesterday dropped
Milk Inspector W. W. Curl from Its rolls
on the ground of incompetency, and In
searching the eligible list for a successor
discovered that there were only two
names left and both of these men would
probably decline appointments if ten
dered them. A new civil service exam
ination must soon be ordered.
Commissioner Newell called up the Curl
case. He said he had heard complaints
and he wanted to know what basis if any
existed. «•
Health Officer L. M. Powers said:
"Cnief Inspector Hood and myself fol
lowed Curl on his rounds for two weeks,
and came to the conclusion that he
seemed to be unable to enforce his com
mands. He was too lenient or not ener
getic enough for an Inspector. The dairy
men would stand him off with one plea or
another."
Chief Inspector Hood said Curl was not
getting results and he regarded him as
Incompetent.
The board promptly dropped him as he
has not served his full six months' pro
bationary period and holds office at the
pleasure of the board.
Owns Interest in Dairies
John I. Moise and Edwin Oberschelp
were reported a? on the eligible list.
Inspector Hood said he understood that
Moise owned an interest in a Los Angeles
dairy and a half interest in one in Los
Angeles county, hence he believed he
would not accept an appointment.
"Let us have his name stricken at
once," said Mayor Harper. "He can't
own a dairy and inspect them too. We
want the eligible list cleared."
Oberschelp holds a lucrative position
with an oil company and took the milk
Inspector's examination with a view to
ultimately doing outside work if his
health demanded It. He is quoted as
having said that he would not want the
Job unless he could get a district agree
able to him. He must make his choice
within forty-eight hours or be eliminated
from the list.

ioned Floor and Mar the
Pretty Paint and Cur
tains
With the arrival of a new horse ambu
lance at the stables of the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los
Angeles horses which fall in the street
from illness or injury will In the future
be better taken care of. By the use of
the new ambulance they will be gently
picked up, placed in a comfortable,
pauded wagon and conveyed to a hospi
tal, where they can be treated.
The wagon is a large, roomy affair,
palntrd In bright red and gold and with
an official looking gong in the front. The
bed is near the ground. By dropping the
endgate there Is a gentle decline to the
street. Down this a false bottom rolls
until it Is on the • treet beside the horse.
The injured animal Is securely strapped
to this and the false bottom, with horse
attached, is drawn into the wagon by a
rope attached to the bottom and to a
windlass.
Luxuriously Fitted
Inside the wagon is comfortably fitted.
Heavy cushions hang around the sides
to prevent Jars. Wide cloth-covered
straps are used to hold the animal In
place.
Lady Mac, a bay mare belonging to the
superintendent of the society, N. W.
Zlmmer, had the honor of taking the first
ride in the new ambulance. She was
taken from a local livery stable to Cen
tral park in the wagon, where a picture
was taken and the workings of the am
bulance were exhibited.
This ambulance is the only one of its
kind In the city and one which the society
has long been striving to secure. Hither
to the society has been able to do nothing
for injured horses, of which thrre Is one
or more every day. In me past many an
imals have had to be shot— animals which
the society expects henceforth to be able
to help.
Society Does Good Work
Money for this cause has teen in pro
cess of collection by society members for
almost a year, secured both by private
donations and by benefit entertainments.
The ambulance arrived In Los Angeles
from New York last week, but during the
journey across the continent box car tour
ists slept in it and the red paint was
badly scratched. It was in the repair
shop till yesterday. The wagon bears the
seal of the society and the words "Ambu
lance of the Los Angeles Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."
Leather curtains on the sides can be
let down during inclement weather and
afford protection to the animal within.

Spanish War Veteran Forgets His
Name and Does Things Con.
cernlng Which He Has
No Memory
Fay Martin, the veteran of the Phil
ipine campaign who was arrested some
time ago charged with embezzlement,
was taken to the county hospital yester
day and will be held there under the
observation of physicians until it Is de
termined whether he is insane.
Martin was wounded during the Phil
iplne campaign while aiding in the re
pulse of Spanish .roops that were attack
ing a battery of which he was a member.
A bullet glanced from the rim of a gun
carriage wheel and passed through his
head. Martin was taken to a field hos
pital and later was sent back to the
United States.
After coming *o this county Martin
went to a hospital, where It was found
necessary to trephine his skull and re
place the bone, which was removed, with
a silver plate.
This is one of the most delicate oper
ations known to the surgical world, but
In Martin's case It proved successful.
Begins to Exhibit Peculiarities
After being discharged as cured the
young soldier obtained employment with
an express company, and lor a year was
looked upon as a reliable and con
scientious employe. Then one -lay he dis
appeared, and for more than a week
nothing was heard fom him.
At last his employers received word
that Martin was in the county hospital.
He had been found roaming the streets,
and when questioned had been unable to
tell his name.
Since i.iat time Martin has been in the
hands of the >ollce at numerous times,
but never with any charge against him
until two weeks ago. He has been picked
up on the street frequently, when un
aule to tell his name or anything about
himself. When in his right mind the
young man Is said to be an ideal work
man. He does not drink, and so far as
known has no bad habits.
Friends have agreed to make good the
small amount of meney Martin Is said
to have embezzled. This money was a
collection made by him while employed
by a local express company.
These friends Intend to have competent
surgeons examine the wound, and it is
probable the plate in Martin's head will
be taken out and refitted. It is thought
a portion of this .late ; pressing on the
brain, and that a new operation will re
lieve It.

were wrong they should be fired, and if
they were right Sayles should be fired."
He stood by his officers, he said.
Dr. C. E. Dickson inquired excitedly if
it were really true that the commission
had reinstated .Sayles. a man who had
served only a few weeks of his proba
tionary term, and hence held his Job at
the will of the board.
"They must be a crazy bunch," Dr.
Dickson said.
"Or else we are crazy," remarked Mayor
Harper.
Sayles 1 contention is that Sehwegel
tried to get him to withdraw from the
eligible list, on which he ranked higher in
percentage than Sehwegel, and on refus
ing Sehwegel threatened to force him out.
Sehwegel denies this charge and says
complaints of restaurant owners are on
file in which Sayles' methods of inspec
tion are crltlcised.-
