Woodward and placed in the county jail on a charge of embezzlement. It is alleged that Bartell used $323 of the packing company's money for his own use.

White, the local cashier for the company, swore to a complaint In Justice H. A. Plerce's court charging him with a felony. FEAR OF TIDAL WAVE IS NOT SIGN OF INSANITY CHARLES A. ROBINSON'S WILL IS PROBATED Judge Rules Peculiar Belief About Seismic Troubles and San Fran. Cisco Grafters Does Not Con stitute Incompetency Because a man has decided opinions about municipal graft, and has an In herent fear of earthquakes and tidal waves, he Is not to be considered In sane, according to a decision rendered yesterday by Judge Rives in the probate court. The point was raised in the contest of the will of Charles A. Robinson, who died in Los Angeles a few months ago, leaving an estate valued at J12.000. He mado but one specific bequest in the will, giving $1500 to Miss Teresa Martin of San Francisco, a niece of his wife's, whom he regarded as his own child. The rest of the estate he left to be divided among the other heirs. Upon this special bequest Mrs. Rob inson has raised a contest, claiming that the deceased was of unsound mind, and citing as Instances of his mental aber ration that he repeatedly talked of the graft charges at San Francisco, and also feared the whole Pacific coast was to be destroyed by another earthquake and a tidal wave. He was 81 years old. "Contestants argue," said Judge Rives, in ruling adversely to the contestants, "that his discussions about official cor ruption and his fear of a tidal wave were fixed delusions. "Fortunately it Is not neceßsary that a man have scientific knowledge, nor hold correct political theories to enable him to make a will. It may be that he had exaggerated ideas of municipal corruptlo'i and was unnecessarily afraid of seismic disturbances, but in the light of recent upheavals, together with the proximity of them to the time of the making of the will, I am not prepared to say that any ideas he had on those subjects were entirely unfounded."

QUEEN ALEXANDRA ILL; OPENING IS POSTPONED By Associated Press. LONDON, July IS.— Queen Alexandra is suffering from a slight and temporary Indisposition, and the opening of the new hostel of St. Luke's hospital, over which she was to have presided, has been postponed in consequence LOS ANGELES HERALD; FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 19, 1907 SAY THEY CANNOI QEI ENOUGH CARS HANDLERS OF FRUIT TELL THEIR TROUBLES Evidence Before Commission Is De. nunciatory of the Holdings System of Distributing Cars During Shortage Eloquent denunciation of the holdings eyatem of distributing care l:. time of shortage was tho feature of yesterday's hearing of the interstate commerce com mission, but when the witnesses were prone to air their private grievances Commissioner Finlaysson promptly inter rupted them and said that he was inter ested in finding out which of the two methods was instrumental in eavlng tho most fruit. J. S. Haight, president of the Haight- Bethell Fruit company of Hedlands, was tho first witness. 'He testified to (several instances in which his firm had been put to considerable bother and actual loss through the refusal of the Santa Fe to provide cars when needed. On cross examination, Mr. Haight ad mitted that his company followed the practice of buyers of fruit generally and bought only at their own figures, even waiting ur.til the end of the season if a grower would not accede to their proposi tion. He had a very uncomfortable time re plying to the many hypothetical questions of Attorney Chapman for the petitioner, but he refused to recede from his former declarations in favor of the system at prerent In force or the Southern Pacific. "Under the holdings rule of apportion ing cars ir. time of shortage," he said, "we should have to go out of business." Denounced the System A. McDermott, manager of the Citrue union at Highland, was next called. He has charge of buying, shipping and in fact all of the union's business, In his district, and was positive that the hold ings' rule was absolutely detrimental to the buyers' interests. ,- In citing an instance of loss that the holdings system had occasioned, Mr. Mc- Dermott taid: "I bought an orchard w..n the understanding that I was to pick not less than two carloads of fruit a day, and on February E7 I notified the local agent of the Santa Fe that I had two carloads waiting for shipment. .'• '¦¦ "I didn't get a car until March 4, and the next one March 9. nearly two weeks after I had ordered them. The second car of oranges were almost worthless when they arrived at their destination." By Attorney Britt, the witness was told to state if his purchases for the sea son had not been greatly diminished by the enforcing of the holdings system. "Yes, fir; they were." he replied. "I had to quit buying last year. I bought twenty-five orchard?, but because I was unable to ship promptly I was able to handle only two orchards at East High land last season." "Do you mean," .asked Comissioner Finlayeon, "that the lack of cars was solely responsible for that great differ ence?" "Well, there were several reasons why we did not get more of the business at that station, but we could have had much more if we had been assured of having cars when we wanted them. I had to haul most of the crops we got at East High land over to Redlands and chip them over the Southern Pacific." .-The-. witness said that not all of the members in the growers' association ship ped through the exchange, for he had bought the entire crop of one of the di rectors of the local exchange. "If they are good fellows, they stay with the exchange, but If they like they sell to us." The hearing adjourned last night until Monday. STOCK EXCHANGE WILL BANQUET NEVADA MAN President Brewer of Goldfield Chamber of Commerce to Be Honored Guest of Local Busi ness Men William J. Brewer, president of the Goldfield chamber of commerce, will be the guest of honor at a banquet tendered him by the board of governors of the Los Angeles Stock exchange. The ban quet will be spread at the California club July 20. Following the friendly reception accord ed Los Angeles merchants on their trip through Nevada local business men are desirous of furthering the friendly rela tions existing between that district and Los Angeles, and it is partly with this purpose in view that Mr. Brewer will be the guest of honor at the spread next Monday.

THREE WANT TO GUARD INSANE MAN'S PROPERTY COURT DECIDES THAT THE WIFE IS LOGICAL TRUSTEE ntlmations of Joint Ownership, Affec tion and Disaffection Serve to Make Decision More Diffi cult for Judge When the petition of Mrs. Benita De clour asking that she be appointed guard ian of her husband's estate was called in the probate court yesterday it was found that there was no opposition. Belgian Consul Ponet and Mrs. Fannie DeMousset also coveted the appointment, but Judge Rives deslded that Mrs. De clour was the proper one to take charge of the property, and she got the appoint- m v"ctor Declour was adjudged insane several weeks ago and committed to the state hospital at Patton. His estate con sisted principally of two houses, one in Los Angeles and another in Alhambra, which he owned Jointly with Mrs De- Mousset. His interest in the properties is valuel at $700 or JSOO. Because of his Joint ownership and to protect everyone concerned the Belgian consul thought he should have control, but after hearing the testimony he was satisfied to allow some other person to have charge. From the evidence it appeared that De clour and his wife did not get along very well at their home in Pasadena, and it was openly charged in court that this dis cord at home was the cause of the old man becoming Insane. Mrs. Declour has a daughter by a former marriage, who, it is said, was the real hone of contention between Declour and his wife. One of the witnesses testified that once In a family row the daughter had thrown her stepfather on the floor and her mother had helped her to thrash him. In the melee the old man's arm had been bitten, but whether by the girl or her mother was not made clear, for both denied it. Declour was in the habit of spending most of the day in Los Angeles at the homo of Mrs. DeMousset, going to his wife's home every night. Mrs. Declour was aware of his daily visits to Mrs. De- Moussot's home, but made no objection. In deciding the guardianship petition Judge Rives said that there was no doubt that Mrs. Declour was entitled to the ap pointmont, and he fixed the bond at JISOO. which she furnished. She is employed In a Pasadena laundry. FIRE BOARD TURNS DOWN FUEL YARD APPLICATIONS Several applications for feed and fuel yards were denied yesterday by the fire commissioners, because of protests from neighbors . L M.

JUDGE TELLS OFFICERS TO CATCH AUTO SPEEDERS DOUBTFUL CASES 'IEVER INSURE CONVICTION Court Tells Patrolmen That Flagrant Violations Are Plentiful and They Should Be Looked After "You speed patrolmen ought to respect the Intentions of careful, considerate drivers of automobiles who exercise dis cretion in running their machines. Why don't you go after the reckless men who drive their automobiles at high speed and violate not only the letter but the spirit of the law? "There are many flagrant violators of the law whom you never get. Most of them are automobile salesmen. I know of two named Reuss and Meyers. Get after those fellows and bring them to me and I'll see that they don't come again." These and many more things were said to a pair of speed patrolmen of the Los Angeles police force by Justice Freder ickson yesterday when the case of War ren Carhart was being tried. It appeared from the evidence that Car hart was going but very little over the speed limit, if he was exceeding it at all. There was a doubt as to the exact speed Carhart was making, and the speed pa trolmen pushed their doubtful case so vigorously that it called forth the above statements from the judge. Carhart is the son of a wealthy, banker in Los Angeles and occupies a prominent position in society. He said that he was not violating the law, and as the evidence given by the policemen was doubtful. Justice Frederickson dismissed the case. If you want to go east, C.
