out and found he was not really hurt.
Then I heard Drew and saw his arm
sticking out from a pile 1 of timbers. I
ran over and after much difficulty was
able to drag him out.
"He would not let me attend to any
of his wounds, but begged me to go
and find his wife and babies.
Hears Mrs. Drew Cry
"I walked around and finally heard
Mrs. Drew crying. I saw right away
that I could never reach her alone.
"I went back to see Drew, who was
lying down, - hardly able to talk. To
encourage him I told him I had found
his wife, and that she was all right, but
I could not get her out without help.
He asked about the children and I told
him I had seen only the one.
"I started out to look for the chil
dren and found the two girls at one
side. They didn't seem to be much hurt.
I took them around with the little boy
to their father.
"That just left the child Thayer to ac
count for, and I felt sure he was with
his mother. I knew I had done all I
could alone. I ran all the way and
was nearly dead when I got to the
grocery store at Altadena. I told the
folks and they telephoned to Pasadena
•for help."
That Mrs. Drew might have saved
herself any injury but for her moth
er's love for Thayer, the 5-year-old boy
Whose body was buried In the debris,
is the story told by Dorothy, one of
the twin girls.
"Mother," she said, "heard the rocks
making a funny noise, and she pushed
me and Helen out of the door and told
us to run for the incline. And we ran
awful hard, but when we looked back
there was no house at all.
"Mother had gone back in the face of
almost certain destruction to save
Thayer, who was in one of the rear
rooms of the pavilion." v
Relief Train Sent
A relief train bearing physicians, po
licemen and volunteers hurried to the
scene. Halfway up the mountain the
car struck a landslide and was obliged
to stop, but the volunteers pushed on.
Men worked waist deep in the stream
and groped under timbers piled in the
canyon.
Fred Drew was found on the rocks
where he had been dragged by Carker,
with his youngest son near him. Next
to be extricated from the wreck was
Mrs. Drew, whose body was found ly
ing directly under streams of water
flowing from a broken pipe. For a
long time it was feared she was dead,
and even now she is in a precarious
condition.
Then the men turned their attention
to recover the body of* the missing
child.
Dr. A. D. S. McCoy, Dr. Williams and
Dr. F. F. Rowland, the physicians dis
patched on the first car, attended the
victims as they were removed from the
wreck, and had them removed to the
Pasadena hospital.
On the other side of the mountain,
on the Mount Wilson trail, two mules
drawing a loaded wagon were caught
in a quicksand formed by the cloud
burst and buried to their necks. Th»
wagon was submerged and the driver,
swept from his seat, only saved him
self by grasping the overhanging
branch of a tree beside the stream.
Ranchers helped the driver to dig his j
team from the mud after the storm
subsided.
BOY IS DROWNED IN
LOS POSOS ARROYO
Falls Into Swollen Stream—Mother,
Frantic with Grief, Declares
Son Was Pushed Into
Water
Killing oranges as they floated down the
swollen stream of Arroyo de Los Posos near
the Covina junction on the Pacific Electric
line, young Hernello Valdez, a Mexican boy
13 years of age, lost his balance and fell Into
the muddy torrent, where he was drowned be
fore he could be recovered by his companions,
who rushed to his aid.
His mother, frantic with grief, is almost
insane over the loss of her son, and in her
ravings insists he was pushed into the
water. Bystanders, claim the boy fell in
when no one was near him. His parents live
in the State street camp of the Pacific Electric
railway, where his father Is employed. The
body was taken to Pierce Brothers' morgue
and an inquest will be held today.
BUSINESS STREETS
FLOODED BY STORM
Cars on Some Lines Tied Up by
Water— Formed at Alameda
—Railroad to North
Closed
"More water than I ever saw in Los
Angeles before," was the general com
ment at noon yesterday when pedes
trians waded about in streets that were
running curb full.
The rain, that continued through
most of Thursday night and Friday
morning, reached its reight about noon
Friday when it came down in torrents.
Street car service-was interrupted to
a considerable extent, and the way of
the pedestrian was hard. Downtown
the water came down from the hills,
flooded the business streets and racing
down toward Alameda street formed a
lake of wide dimensions.
At Buena Vista street and Sunset
boulevard a car "left the rails and
traffic on the Main and Garvanza line
and on the Hollywood -line was tied up
for half an hour.
As soon as the sun came out, how
ever, the floods disappeared and by
night Spring street was dusty.
The Southern Pacific railroad, which
opened both coast and San Joaquin val
ley lines yesterday forenoon, again
went out of business as far as the
north was concerned, and last night it
was stated that no trains were running
out of Los Angeles on either division.
It is expected that both lines will be
opened again today.
The Salt Lake experienced further
trouble with its Glendale and Pasadena
»-«jiniies. which have been closed since

The Los Angeles river was higher
yesterday than it has been any time
this year, and the Arroyo Seco was
nothing less than a torrent.
WALLS OF BUILDING
FALL WITH WIND
Mortar Softened by Continued Rains
and Bricks Tumble in During
Storm —Damage Estimaeed
at $3000
Two high walls of a brick building
in the process of construction at the
corner of Fifty-fifth street and Mo
neta a.venue were blown down yester
day at 1 o'clock by the gale which
swept the city with great velocity.
The damage is estimated at about
$3000. The building Is owned by J. M.
Rhodes, who lives in the same neigh
borhood. Continued rains softened the
mortar which held the bricks together,
and when the gust of wind struck the
wall broadside it could not withstand
the pressure and crumbled in with a
great crash. The north wall was left
standing, but if the rain and wind con
tinue it may also give way.
TREES UPROOTEQ AND MUCH
DAMAGE DONE BY STORMS
SAN BERNARDINO, Feb. 12.—
wind storm which passed over the city
about 2 o'clock this afternoon caused
considerable damage in the way of up
rooting trees all over the city, and this
part of the valley. Trees blown onto
the street car tracks caused a partial
interruption of street car traffic for a
time, while the home of Mrs. Lydia C.
Winchester was badly damaged by a
large tree crushing in one corner of
the building.
The rain has now reached. close to
fifteen inches*for the season, or almost
equal to the record of the entire season
last year. If the rain continues here
many days longer great damage will
result to ranching interests. Mountain
streams are running high, though they
are not badly out of their banks in
this section.
MUCH ANXIETY FELT OVER , ]
ACCUMULATION OF WATERS;
SAN PEDRO, Feb. 12.—Much anxiety Is felt
here concerning the deep hole bounded by
Eighth, Ninth, Mesa and Pacific —streets, I
which" Is filled and overflowing with storm
water drained from the Palos Verdes hills and j
surroundings.
It is estimated this serervoir contains more
than 10,000,000 gallons of storm water, and It
Is momentarily expected this immense body I
of water will break through and follow the old .
water course north of Eighth streat, which
will throw it down over the main business
section of town, causing extraordinary damage
here. The continual downpour here is In
creasing the danger every minute.

LOYAL LEGION PAYS
TRIBUTE TO LINCOLN
TOASTS DRANK IN HONOR OF
DEAD PRESIDENT
Remarkable Paper on Aeronautics by
Professor Lowe Read* by Major
Donnell—Document to Be
Sent to "Congress
One hundred and twenty-five mem
bers of the military order Loyal Le
gion of Union soldiers in Southern Cal
ifornia assembled last night in the*
banquet hall of the Hotel Alexandria
at one of the most remarkable meet
ings in the history of the local legion
for the purpose of commemorating the
one hundredth anniversary of the
birth of Abraham Lincoln.
Appointments of the banquet hall
were exquisite and elaborate and ap
propriate decorations arranged for the
occasion drew forth exclamations or
surprise and admiration from the as
sembled guests.
Brigadier General Charles D. Viele,
U. S. A., president of the legion, pre
sided, while Companion George H.
Stewart acted as toaatmaster. After a
silent toast to "The President," Major
H. T. Lee responded to the toast
"Abraham Lincoln." In simple and
effective language he told of Abraham
Lincoln, the president, soldier and man
as he knew him personally. He brought
tears to the eyes of the old officers and
the younger generation of sons of the
revolution with his account of the
American flag which he carried
through the war and which on one oc
casion had entangled the head of Lin
coln as he rode near on his prancing
horse.
Major Lee holds that historians have
not chronicled correctly the Gettysburg
speech of Lincoln, which the newspa
pers of that time reported as falling
flat. Major Lee heard the speech and
he asserts positively it was the "great
est speech ever made to the Anglo-
Saxon race up to that time," and that,
while it did not bring forth applause,
It aroused a mighty sob of sympathy
from all the men and women who
heard it. , .
Paper on Aeronautics
One of the most remarkable papers
ever written was read by Major Don
nell for Professor T. S. C. Lowe In re
sponse to the toast "Aerial Service in
"War." Professor Lowe is the father
of American aeronautics. He built the
largest balloon in the United States
before the war and traveled in it a
long distance carrying a large amount
of munitions of war.
Mr. Lowe's paper follows in full:
Mr. President, secretary^,, ladles and com
panions of the Loyal Legion:
1 have been asked by President General
Vlele and Secretary Gilbert to prepare a paper
on the 2 use of aeronautics for' military and
naval purposes, to be presented at this meet
ing on the occasion of the celebration of the
one hundredth birthday of the immortal Lin
coln. . ■ %
I shall be able to conclusively show to you
that to Abraham Lincoln is due primarily the
introduction of the very first practical balloons
for war purposes, and since its valuable use In
the United States army during the Civil war,
other nations have copied after those days, and
now the popularity of aeronautics for war pur
poses is certain to develop the beat methods for
general aerial navigation the world over, and
will be the means of bringing about a lasting
peace among all the higher civilized nations
of the earth, and unitedly can compel toe
peace of the weaker, nations, as I shall en
deavor to show. Thus the great work of Lin
coln will, including this, branch, go on through
all ages to come.
How It Began
In 1857, S and 9 I was engaged in studying
the upper air circuits, while Lieut. Maury of
the Washington observatory was getting out
his charts of the ocean currents.
• In 1859 I began the construction of the largest
balloon in the world, and in 1860 I made a trial
trip with it from Philadelphia to the Atlantic
coast, carrying a weight, including the ma
chine, of 14,010 pounds. 1 Had hydrogen Instead
of coal gas been used it would have carried
fourteen- tons, being inflated only three-fourths
of its entire capacity.
Under the auspices of the Franklin institute
of Philadelphia and the Smithsonian institution
of Washington, at the special request of Prof.
Joseph Henry, I made, ion April 20, 1861, one
of the most remarkable high altitude balloon
trips In history, to make a final test of the
upper air currents, starting at 3:45 a. m. and
landing on the Southo Carolina coast at 1
o'clock p. m. the same day (nine hours and
fifteen minutes).
All of these scientific tests and especially
the last trip so impressed Mr.. Lincoln that he
requested Secretary Chase to telegraph Mr.
Potter, publisher of ,the Cincinnati Commer
cial, to have me co tj_ Washington and have a
conference with him. After satisfying himself
of my loyally he made provisions for a series
of tests for real war purposes. —
After many successful observations I per
fected a balloon telegraphic system and sent
the first dispatch as follows:
"Balloon Enterprise in the Air, June 18, IS6I.
"To His Excellency Abraham Lincoln, Presi
dent of the United States:
"Dear Ffom this point of observation
we command an extent of country nearly fifty
miles in diameter. I have the pleasure of send
ing you the first telegram ever dispatched from
an aerial station, and acknowledging indebted
ness to your encouragement for the' oppor
tunity of demonstrating the availability of the
science of aeronautics in the service of the
country. I am your excellency's obedient ser
vant, "T. S. C. LOWE."
Invited to Conference
In response to the above Mr. Lincoln invited
me to another conference at the White House,
where I spent the night, and after the depar
ture of a number of his able assistants, he
called me into his business room and we sat
down at an old fashioned writing table (no
desk or surplus* furniture in the room) where
we discussed several matters of Interest to
him. He thanked me again in the name of the
nation for the Information I had given him
concerning the seqejsion of Tennessee,: about
two weeks before it was officially announced,
for I had attended the first meeting of the
legislature at Nashville on this subject In the
afternoon, and at the night session with closed
doors that state went out of the Union. An
account of how I acquired this Information
without being present would be interesting,
but too long for this paper.
Mr. Lincoln said he had acted upon the
information which I had wired him, greatly
to the benefit of the country. He was par
ticularly interested in my sketches and de
scription of my new idea of directing the fire
of artillery so that the gunner could hit a
mark that he himself could not see.
Mr. Lincoln gave me a letter of introduc
tion to General Scott, leaving the subject of
where balloons should be sent and best used
entirely to his judgment, but the general, at
his age of 82, seemed to have no use for bal
loons, and gave me .no orders, but other com
manders in active service in the field had
plenty of use for all that my limited machin
ery and assistance could do.
Sends Messenger
On the 25th of July Mr. Lincoln sent a
messenger to my camp requesting me to call
at the White House If possible that evening.
At this interview he said that he had Just
received information that it would be neces
sary to build an ironclad mortar boat to shell
the enemy out of their fortifications at Island
Number Ten on the Mississippi river, that
our fleet might mass to supply the armies be
low; that they had already been detained
more than a month at a cost to the govern
ment of a million dollars a day, and as it
would take at least that much more time
to build an efficient ironclad it would make
war in the west very expensive.
He said that at our last interview he be
came impressed that my system of signals to
our gunners might accomplish the object. He
then gave me the following card to General
Scott^, requesting me to see him the next
morning and explain what I required and Its
Importance and to report results during the
day. It reads as follows:
"Will Lieutenant General Scott please see
Professor Lowe once more about his balloon?
"A. LINCOLN."
"July 2., 1861."
I presented this card four times during the
day and each time it was returned, twice say
ing that the general was engaged, the third
that he was at lunch, and the fourth time
that he was asleep! This is the reason that
I have the original card to show you here
tonight.
I was more fortunate In delivering several
other letters which Mr. Lincoln had favored
me with, but as a substitute I have another
original letter written by Mr. Lincoln to a
committee of the Methodist conference. It is
considered one of his most remarkable and
diplomatic letters. This letter was sold at a
fair in Philadelphia to help raise funds for
the Soldiers* hospital, and was bought by
Mrs. Lowe, who treasures it beyond price.
Reports Failure j
To return to the subject. Knowing that Mr.
Lincoln was expecting to hear the results of
my visit to General Scott, at 4 o'clock that
afternoon I reported to him my failure to sec
the general. . Without a moment's hesitation
he picked up his hat and asked me to ac
companying him over to General Scott's head
quarters. .
The guard presented arms,* the door was
opened and in less than ten minutes General
Scott gave orders on Captain Dahlgren, . com
mander of the Washington navy yard,, and
Quartermaster General Meggs to furnish me
with everything I might require to introduce
my aeronautic system on land and water. I
lost time in running the Potomac block
ade to get a balloon to Fortress Monroe, and
sent a complete outfit to Island Number Ten
and In twenty-four hours after my signal
system was put into . operation the: enemy
evacuated their stronghold and our fleet ran
by without further hindrance.
Another of my balloon strategies caused the
lifting of the blockade on the Potomac which
enabled the, earlier departure of our trans
port carrying troops to Fortress Monroe for
the peninsular campaign. ,;-.
My night and day balloon obseravtions be
fore and during the battle of Fair Oaks en
abled the uniting of our army in time to save
it from destruction, so says the hero of that
great battle in a letter to me, which I still
have, and the testimony of the foreign officers.
Fits Out Expedition
In 1866, at the request of Emperor Dom
Pedro, I fitted out an expedition to accom
pany the Brazilian army and navy up the
Paraguay river during the war with Paraguay.
When their fortifications were reached the
Paraguayans opened fire, but the Brazilians
held their fire until the balloon went up and

enemy's stronghold, when a ~ vigorous attack
was made and their guns soon silenced. So
overawed were the Paraguayans that in a
few hours they sent in a flag of tram and
the war ended. * ,
With my knowledge of construction and op
eration of the largest globular balloon by
many times ever constructed and which is the
strongest and best form, together with the
present light and powerful engine construc
tion to go with them, I should never again
think or directing artillery fire other than
that which the balloon itself could accomplish
with Its tons cf powerful explosives and surer
aim under the system I have perfected no
destroy a fortification or a fleet of battleships
or a navy yard .to prevent new battleships
from becoming troublesome —and'do this while
entirely out of reach of land or naval ar
tillery.
■; Fifty of these machines can be built. at the
cost of one battleship, any one of which would
be worth for war purposes more than a
dozen of the largest warships ever built.
Since I have already demonstrated by actual
tests that airships can be made and operated
j that can carry twenty tons and retain their
lifting force indefinitely (a year at least with
out reinflation), I could, should occasion re
quire it. build an aerial warship in six months
that could be operated with such terrible effect
that it would fully demonstrate the necessity
of a great international congress which could
successfully declare against wars of all kind".
Aerial Navigation Useful
Then aerial navigation, which is now at
our doors, can be employed for the more legit
imate and better uses of science, pleasure and
commerce as well as explorations now impos
sible without an air navigating vessel that
can carry heavy weights an*, propelling ma
chinery.
So far I have not alluded to the late suc
cessful demonstration by the use of aero
planes. This is a branch of air navigation
which first attracted my ' attention, and I
now have plans of such a machine which 1
sketched in 1857, which, when put in operation,
will prove successful as has been proved by
a number of aviators, notably the Wright
brothers, to" whom the greatest credit and
support should be given.
Since my first I thoughts were put on paper
the box kite has been perfected, as well as
very light internal combustion engines (first
perfected for automobile use), and these two
machines combined are exactly what has so
far enabled all aviators to navigate the air.
The Wright brothers as well as that great
genius, Sir Hiram Maxim, according to recent
letters received from them, inform me that
they are working to improve and strengthen
the present mode of construction of aeroplanes,
while the design of my machine of fifty-two
years ago, in strength and efficiency, requires
no improvement, and had I possessed the light
powerful engine of today the air would have
been navigated at that time.
Sees Great Development
These aeroplanes will have as many styles
and forms as do wheeled vehicles of today,
and thousands of them will be in use to every
one of the heavy weight carrying balloons,
but their carrying capacity will always be
limited, and not being able to ever reach the
altitude of the balloon will always be at its
mercy in times of war. The balloon, -whenever
desired, can poise directly over the object to
be destroyed and can never be reached by
shot or shell or aeroplane, while the aeroplane
must keep in rapid motion and can hit no
object with accuracy without coming within
reach of light rapid-firing guns.
Now if I be permitted to digress from the
subject for a moment, I would suggest a senti
ment in which I feel that all members of
the Loyal Legion the country over, as well
as the i people of the United States in general,
will heartily concur.
George Washington is Justly known as the
father of his country- After passign through
innumerable great trials, during a long and
tedious war, with insufficient forces to sus
tain him, victory at last crowned his efforts
and a new nation was born with numerous Im
perfections, which lasted with more or less
friction, however, until 1861, when God sent
Lincoln, who wiped out the country's inher
ited stains and established a NEW UNION,
■which is destined to last for all time as a
shining example to all the world.
Therefore Abraham Lincoln, as the savior
of his country, should at least stand on a
par with the great Washington, and the day
of his birth be made a national holiday by an
act of congress.
Not because it would make Lincoln any
greater in the eyes of the world, but as a
duty which every citizen of the United States
owes to himself.
This epoch-making address on aero
nautics is being sent by Professor
Lowe to congress with an urgent re
quest that a fund be established by the
federal government to subsidize and
encourage experiments in aerial nav
igation.
In most eloquent phrase and lan
guage Companion Samuel H. French
responded to the toast "Woman," tell
ing of the struggles of Lincoln, whose
mother died -when he was 9 years of
age.
"The American Soldier" was treated
in a masterly fashion by Major John
A. Payne, U. S. A.
Admiral O. W. Farenholt, TJ. S. N.,
told in a brief review of the early
struggles of the navy and the needs of
the present navy of the United States.
"The M. O. L. L. U. S.: Its History
and Its Work," was treated by Colonel
W. R. Smedburg, TJ. S. A., recorder
of the order.
Old war songs were joined in by the
entire assemblage of guests. Patriotic
selections were rendered at intervals
throughout the evening by the Alexan
dria hotel orchestra, under the direc
tion of R. J. Angelotti. The banquet
and its appointments were under the
personal supervision of Assistant
Manager Joseph Reichl.
EAGLE IN HARLEM
STIRS THINGS UP
Tackles a Tom Cat and Fights the
Whole Solomon Family Before
It Is Arrested
Accused of "felonious assault on a tom
cat and four human beings, and also of
disorderly conduct, in that It almost scared
the life out of the neighborhood, a big gray
eagle was locked up In the East One Hun
dred and Twenty-sixth street police sta
tion last night.
The bird was arrested, after a rough and
tumble fight, in the yard In the rear of Jo
seph Solomon's butcher shop, 1624 Madison
avenue, near One Hundred" and Eighth
street. It was tearing a large cat to death
with Its talons, all the while screaming like
a lost child, when Solomon, Pffeffer, his
helper,' and other folk rushed to the win
dows at 6:30 p. m.«
Pffeffer threw his sweater over the eagle,
which did a Salome dance and then stood
on its head. The whole . Solomon family
tried to club or grab it, but the enraged
eagle fought them off for twenty minutes,
drawing blood from three or four who got
too close.
Finally Pffeffer flung a burlap bag over it,
and then tied the mouth of the bag and
bore the bird to the police station.
Doorman Hugh Armstrong made a special
cell for the bird . oui of a dry goods box.
Instead of being arraigned today before a
magistrate, the eagle will be taken to police
headquarters and turned over to the prop
erty clerk, who will turn the King of the
Air over to the Bronx Zoo. No one knows
whence the eagle came.—New York World.
