Hides In Shed While Blaze Spreads.
Half a Dozen Cottages De.
stroyed — Warehouse
Because ho was afraid his mother would
whip him little Clatana Ortiz ran away
and hid after he had dropped a lighted
candle into a pile of clothing in a closet
of his home. The flames spread and be
fore the fire department had succeeded In
extinguishing the fire property to the
amount of $3600 had been destroyed on
which there Is no insurance.
The buildings destroyed were the wag
on factory and blacksmith shop of E. J.
Jaqulth at 360 South Alameda street, the
one-story frame store buildings at 366 and
358 South Alameda street and five one
story cottages In the rear of these num
The fire started shortly before 5 o'clock.
Ciatana Ortiz, who is 6 years of age,
had gone Into the closet to find some
article which he wanted, and he climbed
up on a chair to take a lighted candle
from the shelf on the doorway of the
closet which was always open. He let
the candle fall and it dropped into a
pile of clothing which lay on the floor
of the closet.
In an instant the clothing was afire.
Seeing what he had done and afraid of
the punishment which he felt sure would
follow he, ran from the house and hid
in a shed in the rear of the building.
None of the other members of the Ortis
family were in the house at the time, and
the fire gained much headway before It
was discovered.
The buildings were of frame, very old
and the fire literally ate Its way through
walls and roof with lightning speed.
When the fire department arrived it had
gained such headway that It was seen
impossible to save any of the buildings
From the Ortiz residence, which was in
the rear of 358, the flre caught the walls
of the Jaqulth establishment and this
building, a long and high frame struc
ture, was soon one mass of flame. From
here it spread to the warehouse of the
establishment in the rear of which were
stored many new wagon beds and ma
The frame building adjoining the Ortiz
home on the north caught almost at the
same time, and all but the front of it
was burned.
Cottage Burns
Immediately in the rear of this build
ing was the home of Joseph Oldani, an
Italian, who Is a grading contractor and
held leases on all the other buildings
destroyed except the wagon works. The
Oldani home was a six-room cottage. It
caught from sparks and was practically
destroyed with the greater part of the
contents of the building.
Four other frame cottages in the rear
were also destroyed, but nearly all of
the furniture in each was taken out be
fore the flre reached them.
For a time the large barn of the Beklns
Van and Storage company and the ware
house of the same company were in dan
ger, but by good work the firemen, under
the direction of Chief Lips, kept the flre
from spreading to them.
George E. Steams Is the owner of the
buildings destroyed and the losses are
estimated as follows: Jaqulth wagon
works, $500 on building, $400 on tools and
$1500 on finished and raw material; No.
3JB, occupied by L. Vegas, $300 on # build
ing, $100 on contents; No. 356, occupied by
A. Roderlguez, $250 on building, $100 on
contents; cottage in rear of 358, occupied
by T. Ortiz, $150 on building, $150 on con
tents; cottage In rear of 356, $150 on build
ing, $75 on contents, owned by R. Carillo;
cottage occupied by Joseph Oldani, $500
on building, $575 on contents; two frame
sheds used for storage purposes, $76.
Shortly after 7 o'clock sparks which
flew from the burning Jaquith building
started a flre on the roof of the one
story frame dwelling at 816 Bast Fourth
street, occupied by Peter Keane. The
blaze was extinguished by the chemical.
The loss was nominal.

Draws Text from "He Showed Mercy
to David"— Expounds "Loving
Kindness" as Shown
by the Bible
At the First Congregational church,
Wm. Horace Day, pastor, preached yea
terday morning on "Davids Experience
of Mercy." His text was from 2, Sam.,
1:51: "He showed mercy to David." He
said In part:
"There is in the Bible the terrible word
sin; beside It we find the glorious word
mercy, or, loving kindness, as it is in the
revised version. David's experience il
lustrates God's mercy to «..e successful
man, to the sorrowful man and to the
sinful man.
"It is by the mercy of God that a man
has his chance for success. To David He
gave wonderful chances for success. Be
cause he behaved himself more wisely
than all the servants of Saul 'his name
was much set by.'
"These initial successes gave him op
portunities for the development of lead
ership, but such a chance could not have
been his except as he had received it
humbly. We again understand why God
found David a man after His own heart
In the way he received these mercies.
His reverend spirit shines through "who
am I that thou hast brought me thus
"God shows mercy no less In the send
ing of adversity. The man who succeeds
is apt to forget unless that It Is the gift
of divine mercy. Only the sting of ad
versity can bring him back to dependence
on God. Did you ever find a man whose
success was perfect? The sudden calami
ty falls.
"In such an hour all David's success
seemed lost and he came to Jonathan say-
Ing, 'as thy soul liveth there is but a step
between me and death.' He fled for his
life and endured tne severities of Adul
lam in place of luxuries of the court, and
yet the mercy of God was In his loss
of Saul's favor.
Mercy In Sorrow
"When death came Into David's home
he was heart-broken. But David, the
mourner, found the mercy of God ade
quate for comfort to a sorrowing father.
Later in his life he suffered the sorrows
worse than death. Absalom lead a re
bellion and drove his old father out of
his citadel. The old king had been driven
out of Jerusalem by his rebel son Ab
salom. There are griefs worse than
death. The weeping man mourned not
alone for the loss of his power, or his
wealth, but as king for his broken realm.
"The national unity which he had spent
his life in cementing was about to perish
because his son led the south In rebellion
against the north. The sorrow of the
father was even deeper— was It not his
son who threatened his life, the son
whom he had loved, whom he had show
ered with most generous gifts all his
"The evil way of that son filled the
paternal heart with woe far greater than
that which death Itself can give. In such
hours as these Dnvld discovered the death
of the divine mercy. Many a man In the
hour of his sorrow has found how much
his friends loved him and then how much
God loved him. So with this Hebrew
"The divine mercy shows Itself in the
banishment of sin. Thank God we never
entirely escape from the consequences of
wrong. Many a man who today Is re
spected and leading a splendid life would
not have been In the path of rectitude
If the bitter cup of exposure had not
been pressed upon his lips.
"Sin Is the terrible fact in each life.
Whether It be In the new theology of an
immature but brilliant man who tells us
that sin is self-ward and love all-ward,
God-ward, and that there Is conflict be
tween the two, the atoning process by
which man is won from selfish life to
real love to God, must go on. •
"That process is as eternal in the heart
of God as His mercy Is eternal. It ap

Samuel J. Small, Who Won for Oper.
ators Signal Victory In San Fran.
Cisco, Pays Visit to Los
Samuel J. Small, president of the Com
mercial Telegraphers' union, arrived from
San Francisco yesterday morning and
was a gueßt of the local union.
At a special meeting held yesterday
afternoon Mr. Small discussed with the
telegraphers the recent trouble In San
Mr. Small, who is stopping at the
Rosslyn, is a frank, genial man and made
an instant hit with the Angelenos who
entertained him yesterday.
Asked if there was any likelihood of
further trouble between the telegraphers
and the companies Mr. Small said:
"Not the slightest chance. We gained
great concessions from the companies at
Oakland. All our men have returned to
work but a few and the promises are
to reinstate all within thirty days.
"If the companies keep their agree
ment, and we hope and believe they
will, all will be smooth sailing. The ar
bitration committee will Bit on the propo
sition of an increase of wages within a
few weeks.
"All over the United States the teleg
raphers are alert and enthusiastic.
"Yes, the eight-hour day is still a live
issue. Very much alive. From Maine to
Mexico there is a demand for a relaxa
tion from long, grinding hours of toll.
Men and women tre aroused and the
clamor will not quiet until their demands
are heard, tinder existing circumstances
men may be forced to work fourteen,
sixteen and eighteen hours a day. True,
they are paid overtime. These overtime
earnings are quoted by telegraph super
intendents to show what real sinecures
the operators enjoy.
"The wage question will not down.
They may delude the public by their per
sistent press propaganda, but the work
ers are not to be blinded. In Buffalo a
number of operators are working for
$27.50 a month. We shall not rest until
these wrongs are righted. We insist that
women doing equal work shall receive
equal pay.
"We are fairly well treated by the news
papers, but one news service showed a
tendency to carry a great deal of com
pany news. They hardly dare to be
openly unfair.
"We have the agreement signed by the
union official, officers of the telegraph
companies and the representative of the
United States government. We shall
stand by that agreement and we shall
firmly Insist the San Francisco officials
stand by it also.
"As far as I have seen it Los Angeles
is a beautiful city. I have been de
lightfully entertained. I shall certainly
return here at my first opportunity."
Mr. Small was given a complimentary
dinner at Casa Verdugo yesterday by a
number of local telegraphers.
He leaves for San Francisco this morn
