COMPANY DECLARED BLAMELESS FAMILIES OF DEAD MEN MUST SUE ELSEWHERE OWNERS OF LONG BEACH HOTEL VINDICATED Decision of Judge Wilbur May Cause Suspended Sentence In Dam. age Suit Won by the Plaintiffs Pull of intensely significant interest to the families of the deceased workmen killed November 9. 1906, in the concrete building which partially collapsed at Long Beach Is the decision handed down by Judge Curtis D. Wilbur yesterday in the case of Alexander Bovay against the Long Beach Hotel company for $26,000 damages. By this decision tho guilt for the acci dent, which caused the death of a num ber of workmen is considerably narrowed down. Families of the deceased working men have been confident all along that they merited damages, but have not known where to place the responsibility. It has taken long months of litigation ln the superior court to determine the mat ter. In the written opinion of Judge Curtis D. Wilbur, rendered yesterday, the Long Beach Hotel company Is exonerated from guilt. The following extract from the opinion is self-explanatory: "From the foregoing authorities It fol lows that the defendant was not liable unless he knew, or should have known, of the defect in the plans, and there Is no evidence to indicate that they had any knowledge or suspicion or any rea son to believe that the plans were de fective. "The evidence ln this case has not Induced such a conviction ln my mind as would justify a judgment based upon the proposition that the collapse was proxlmately caused by a defect in the plans. Judgment and findings therefore must be for the defendant, inasmuch as the evidence does not preponderate in favor of the plaintiff." File Amended Complaints The first suit brought by Bovay was against both the hotel company and F. L. Spaulding, the contractor. Owing to Insufficient evidence against the con tractor the action against him was dis missed. Then Attorneys Williams, Goudge '& Chandler, for the hotel company, pro ceeded to show that the contractor and not the hotel company was to blame for the falling of the Bixby hotel. This contention led to the decision ren dered above by Judge Wilbur. In the meantime Mrs. Jewett Phillips had brought suit against the hotel company ln Judge Conrey's court before a Jury and had secured a conviction and judg ment of $10,000. The decision of Judge Wilbur appears to be in direct contra diction to the finding in Judge Conrey's court and may lead to a suspension of the sentence. On motion of the attorneys for the hotel company for a new trial the fine was temporarily suspended. It now ap pears likely that the flne will never be collected and that Mrs. Phillips will have to look to Contractor Spaulding for damages. Meantime amended complaints have been pouring into the superior court ln which members of the families whose relatives were killed In the accident make F. L. Spaulding defendant. From this time on it seems likely the hotel company will be eliminated from the liti gation and the struggle will be between the contractor and the plaintiffs who claim damages. Already six suits have been filed against Spaulding and will come up for trial as noon as the holidays are over. TELLS STEPS NECESSARY TO FORM NEW COUNTY Deputy District Attorney Renders De cision of Great Importance to the Members of Pomona Secession Forces An important decision was rendered yesterday by Deputy District Attorney Hartley Shaw on the proposition of Pomona to form a new county. The decision was drawn up in lengthy documentary form and ad dressed to Dr. R. P. Shepherd, manager of the campaign fund and head of the secession forces. The decision decides the status of voters who are competent to express an opinion on the question of separation and the portion of the registered voters required to make the action valid. Sixty-five per cent of the voters in the district desiring separation must express themselves favorably to the plan. Any group of persons near the boundary of the proposed county can have themselves excluded from the county by a 65 per cent adverse vote. A peculiar legal proposition presents Itself in this connection. According to the law a single individual, being ihe only resident of a given district near the boundary of the proposed county, can have himself excluded from the new political division. The re mainder of the inhabitants of the county have nothing to say ln regard to the action of a given group who de eire to establish themselves into a. separate county. The decision centers around three main propositions and Attorney Shaw has taken them up ln order and dis posed of them as follows: First — Remonstrances of the opposi tion will have no weight unless filed -with the board of supervisors as the petition must first be filed with the board before the boundaries of the proposed county can be definitely as certained. Second — Any one desiring to with draw his support from the opposition may do so by signing the petition for separation, which is the only docu ment considered by the board of super visors. Third — Petitioners must be regular electors of the district comprised In the new county at the time of the signing of the petition and their names must v at that time appear on the great regis ter of the county. POLICE FIND BLAZE VAINLY SOUGHT BY FIREMEN Members of the fire department yes terday morning searched high and low for a fire near Sixth and Grand ave nue, but after a futile effort to find the blaze returned to their stations.

A A -»- ¦?¦¦»-¦?¦¦< The Musical World I Genevra Johnstone-Bishop THE piano recital next Monday night at the Woman's club house by Miss Cecil Cowles will be an interesting event. The program will be published in Sun day's Herald. Mme. Emma Calve, who Is to appear, In concert in this city on Tuesday evening, December 17, at Simpson auditorium, is this season making the most comprehen sive concert tour ever undertaken by a great singer. It embraces the entire United States from coast to coast and a side trip into Mexico. The opening con cert was given in Portland, Me., and the route extends to Portland, Ore. Forty one out of the forty-five states will be traversed and a little more than 30,000 miles will be covered in the five months allotted to the tour. About fifty concerts will be given ir all. Two a week will be the general average, though there are some weeks in which three will be given. Mme. Calve Is traveling in her own luxuriously equipped private car, with a retinue of servants and attendants. These include a private secretary, a femme de chambre, an expert coiffeur, a chauf feur and two chefs and a waiter com prising part of the household staff at the Chateau de Qabrlelles, her country place in the department of the Arveyron In the south of France. In a special bag gage car are carried two French motor cars in which madame spends several hours each day motoring when the weath er permits. No great singer ever traveled surrounded by quite so many of the creature comforts, and yet Mme. Calve Is dissatisfied with what she terms "the turmoil and the strife" of it all, and declares that it is extremely doubtful if she will ever again consent to make any thing more than a very short trip. Traveling with her is her own specially selected concert company, which includes Mile. Rene Chemet, a violinist with an extensive reputation throughout Europe, and Camllle Decreus, accounted one of the most facile of all accompanists. The programs have been arranged with the idea in mind of giving not only Mme. Calve but all the other artists exception al opportunity for the display of their virtuosity. MILAN, Oct. 22.— That Americans can come to Italy and make a success ln grand opera is proven again in the case of Blanche Hamilton Fox, the young mezzo soprano from Boston, who has been singing here the past two years under the stage name of Bianca Volplni. Miss Fox has just returned to Milan from a few months' visit to London and Paris, where she met and sang for Oscar Hammerstein, who was delighted with her voice and who predicted great success for her; also for Jean de Reszke and Mme. Nordlca, both of whom at once became greatly interested in her voice. Miss Fox has received a number of tempting offers recently, and from among them she has chosen to accept a contract to sing during the coming carnival season at Mantova and Venice ln the eporas "Alda," "Battiste" and "Meflstofele" at Montava, and ln "Mignon," "Trovatore" and "Favorita" at "Venice. The opera "Battista" was composed by the well known and talented priest, Don Finl, and was written as an oratorio, but will now be given as an opera, and Miss Fox has had the honor of being selected to create the role of Theodora. I understand the entire house Is sold out for the society vaudeville November 18 at the Mason. A young American singer, Edith De Lis, made her debut at Covent Garden in "La Tosca" October 23 and had success. They say she has a flne voice and as an artist and actress she already shows great capabilities. She is a native of Boston and very young. Campanari taken suddenly ill at Char lotte, N.

FIND LEGAL FLAW IN BRIDGE SCHEME OPPONENTS OF ELYSIAN SPAN ARE ACTIVE Argue That Pease as Councilman and as Acting Mayor Had No Right to Vote on and Sign Measure With Niles Pease as councilman voting for the Downey-Elysian bridge condem nation and Niles Pease as acting mayor signing the measure, opponents of the bridge at Buena Vista street believe they have the scheme tied up. Some of them made the discovery y9G terday and forthwith proceeded to organ ize a movement to delay the new steal highway, saying that the steps were ir regular. , Councilman R. M. Dromgold, as presi dent of the improvement association,' has worked long and earnestly for this brjdgo to merge and facilitate all of the tra'fflo out the Pasadena and northern highways and he had congratulated himself on hav ing pushed the legislation as far as the condemnation stage anyway. Now new obstacles threaten to arise. The city's legal department had pre pared the necessary preliminary proceed ings to acquire the needed land for ap proaches from the railroads and privata holders. Some buildings will have to be torn down to make room for the approaches, but most of the land must be obtained from the steam railroad owners. Funds for the bridge will be found in the next fiscal year and ln the meantime work will bo ahead on other bridges un der the agreement formed among the councilmen themselves. When steps are well under way for the Elyslan bridge Councilman E. A. Clam pitt will urge action on the plan to widen Buena Vista street for which purpose the Southern Pacific has agreed to give a slice of its yards lands. A legal opinion has been asked from City Attorney Leslie R. Hewitt relative to Mr. Pease's dual connection with the condemnation proceedings. CONTRACTORS MUST MEET THEIR CLAIMS PROMPTLY CITY'S LEGAL DEPARTMENT CITES LAWS ON SUBJECT Petition Filed by Two Men Concern. ing Alleged Debt on Public Work Calls Attention to Regulations The city's legal department has ren dered another opinion for the city council which again calls attention to the strict ness of the statutes requiring contractors on public work to meet their just bills for wages, materials, etc., promptly. Chris and Steve Danasovich are peti tioners in a case and they nled petitions under the act of March 27, 1897, being "an act to secure the payment of the claims of material, men, mechanics' or laborers employed by contractors upon state, mu nicipal or other public work." i The act provides in substance that evfti-y contractor awarded a contract for the ex ecution of certain public work therein mentioned shall give a bond to secure the claims mentioned and that in case the contractor fails to pay any such person ior any work done under such contract the person claiming pay may within thirty days from the time of the comple tion of the work file with the city coun cil or other body by whom the contract was awarded a verified statement of hia claim together with a%statement that the same has not been paid. At any time within ninety days after the filing of such claim the person filing the claim may commence an action against the sureties on the contractor's bond. Hence the Danasovich petitions havo been filed without any action being taken by the city council, the petitioners hav ing their rights under the statutes.

LITTLE HERO'S STORY AWAKEHS SYMPATHY KIND HEARTED PASSENGERS HEAR PATHETIC STORY Boy Digs Out Store of Treasures and Reveals Story of Privation Which Brings Imme diate Returns "Fare!" "Walt till I find my money." "Well, get a guerney on you, I can't wait all day," and the big broad shoul dered conductor on Boyle Heights car No. 278 continued on his Journey through the car, while the six-year-old passengar to whom he had been speaking vigor ously kept up the search through his pockets. "Here, sonny, let me hold your things for you." said a young woman who was seated near the boy, and who gazed smil ingly into hiß frightened face. "Placa them here in my lap while you hunt for your money." Following her request the little fel iow began emptying his pockets into the young woman's lap. First there tumbled forth a ball of string, followed a second later by a ball of flsh cord, a top, three broken pen knives, a couple of pieces of lead pencil, a slate pencil, a glass marble, two exploded cartridges, a piece of rod glass, some chalk, three nails, some rai sins and a miscellaneous lot of Junk which could not be classified. "Guess I'll find it, if I keep on," said the little fellow as he continued the search, while the young woman gazed ln astonishment at the articles her lap contained, but despite all the lad's ef torts he was unable to find any money. "Where were you going little boy?" asked/ a kind faced elderly woman who sat across the aisle and who had been an interested witness of the proceeding*. "Mamma told me to go to the doctor and get my arm set," replied the little fol low. "I fell off the shed while putting up a clothes line for her a week ago and broke my arm. She took me to the doctor and he fixed it, but now I have to go and get it fixed again. Mamma went with me before, but thought I could go alone this time and she was busy." Story Arouses Sympathy "Well, I'll pay ' your farce," said the woman as she handed the conductor a half dollar, and when the man handed back the change she motioned him to give it to theiboy. "Let the little fellow have it," she said. "He deserves It." Other passengers on the car then came forward and the lad was questioned about the accident and how It happened. He told his questioners his name was Frankle and that he lived in Boyli Heights. We explained that money was not as plentiful at home at present as it had been ln times past, and for that reason he was not visiting the physician as often as he should. He told how his mother had given him ten cents for street car fare that day, but that the family would not have meat for supper as a result, as ID cents was all thero was in the house at the time. As his listeners heard his story they turned and brushed away tears, until an elderly man thrust his hand into his pocket and pulled it forth filled with change. "Here, my lad," he said, "put this in your pocket and then you'll have plenty of car fare next time." His example was quickly followed by others, and when tha boy left the car at First and Spring streets his pockets contained not only chalk and marbles but money.

Golden, a real estate man, living at No. 4 Temple court, were troubled Wednesday night by hor rible nightmares. In fancy he saw a panorama of phan tasmagoric and Impossible creatures pans before his eyes, some of them so near that their fiery breath and glittering eyes burned into his very soul. Naturally Mr. Golden fought off the demons surround ing him and ln his valiant efforts fell from a couch on which he had thrown himself late at night, exhausted with the day's work. When the man was taken to the re ceiving hospital Dr. Tanner found nls mouth badly injured and some of his teeth loosened. He w.as attended to and sent home. POLICE ARE FORCED RELEASE A YEGGMAN Man Held Several Days on Suspicion Is Given His Liberty and ' Told to Leave Los Angeles A man who is thought by the police to be one of the most noted yeggmen in the country has been released from the city jail, and the city of Los Angeles has been rid of a man on whom suspicion has rested since his arrival in the city some weeks ago. The alleged yeggman is W. R. Parkor and he was released yesterday from the city jail after being held almost a week on suspicion. Parker was caught trying to dispose of "phony" Jewelry, but the only evidence the police could find on his person was the setting of a brooch which had at one time contained fourteen gems, presumably diamonds. Parker admitted his work was that of disposing of "fake" Jewelry, but in such a way that he made his business seem legitimate. The man's familiarity with the Jargon used by yeggmen Is startling and proved to the detectives of Captain Flammer's office that he Is an old hand on the road and in the work of gaining a livelihood ln any way except through laber. The conversation of Parker is al most unintelligible to a person unfamil iar with the expressions of a professional yeggman. Parker was told by the police to not only leave the station but the city. FRIENDS IDENTIFY BODY OF VICTIM OF TRAIN Man Killed by Santa Fe Wednesday Night Found to Be William Polk McDonald of Downey Friends of William Polk McDonald, a laborer, of Downey, Cal., yesterday idon tlfied the body of the man found near the Santa Fe tracks as that of their friend. McDonald at the time of his death was on his way to Los Angeles and is thought to have been struck by a train. Yester day morning when ho did not return to his home in Downey some anxiety was felt among the members of his family, and his father-in-law, J. P. Montgomery, started for Los Angeles to search for him. Reading the accounts ln the morning papers of the fatal accident Montgomery visited the Santa Fe hospital, where he found the body of his son-in-law. The body will probably be taken to Downey for burial.
