Spring St. Verdugo Canyon Tract CLAN CAMERON ENJOYS MERRY NEW YEAR MEET Members of Fraternal Order Sit Down to Typical Scotch Supper and Hear Celtic Songs . New Year's festivities of Clan Carii eron, Order of Scottish Clans, were participated in by a crowd that tilled th<^ two halls in Mammoth hall build ing. A typical Scotch supper was fol lowed by the following program: Address of wolcome, Chief M. C. Meiklejohn; song, "My Bairnie," Mrs. W. W. Kirk; song, "The Old Rustic- Bridge," Clansman Aitken; address, "Hogmanay," Clansman David G. Baillle; song. Miss Baker; flageolet solo, "Selections," Clansman J. Begg; song, Mrs. Ross; dance, Highland Fling, Miss Carson; song, "Angus Mc- Donald," Clansman W. W. Kirk; song, Clansman J. Smith; song, "McGregors" Gathering," J. A. Anderson; song, J. Harrison; dances, reels, strathspeys and schottisches, till the wee sma' lioo'rs; then, "Let's gang hame, Davle! Gie's yer airm." The order of Scottish Clans is world wide. It is one of the greatest of the fraternal insurance societies, and al though it is young in Los Angeles, is achieving the same remarkable success that has attended It elsewhere. The social feature of the organization Is merely incidental. It takes care of its sick members and provides for the widows and orphans of deceasi-d mem bers. Secretary Wilson, Mayor Alex ander and many of the leading citizens of the United States are either affil iated with the Clans or are in active sympathy with the order. Since this organization was founded it has been the means of helping thou- sands of beneficiaries to the aggregate extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars and in Southern California, where a large per centage of the pop ulation is composed of people of Scot tish blood, It will be a noteworthy ad dition to the "fraternals."

TRAFFIC AGAIN BEING RESUMED AFTER STORM MANY TRAINS OPERATE ON SCHEDULE TIME INTERURBAN LINES ARE STILL SOMEWHAT CRIPPLED Salt Lake Road Demoralized and All Wires Are Down Eighty Miles In the Desert with Bridges Gone The Southern Pacific and Santa Fe trains are operating again on schedule time. Through connection with the east and northern points via the San Joaquln valley have been re-estab lished and the ravages of the storm effaced to a degree that makes travel safe. The Pacific Electric interurban lines suffered considerably and it will bo. some time before traffic on schedule time Is completely restored. The Hunt ington Beach line to Los Angeles is entirely out of commission. At a point below El Monte on the Covina line 700 feet of filling has been swept away and it is said that ten days will elapse before the damage is repaired. The Glendora, Santa Ana and Whittier lines are weakened. Traffic to Be Resumed According to a statement issued last night by General Manager T. J. Mc- Caffery. the Glendora cars will be in operation this morning, the Santa Ana cars this afternoon and the Covina line will commence handling through pas sengers with short transfers. The Co vina line, Mr. McCaffery stated, would not be completely repaired for through service until Friday or Saturday. The Los Angeles & Renondo railway enjoys the distinction of being the only car line in Southern California that was not -affected by the recent storm. The Los Angeles Street railway suf fered only slight inconvenience from the rains and its cars are operating the same as usual in all parts of the city Salt Lake Demoralized Traffic on the Salt Lake road Is ut terly demoralized as a result of the ravages of the storm. The wires are down for eighty miles in the desert, and the full extent of the damage can not as yet be ascertained. Bridges and miles of track are gone. Nine miles east of Los Angeles the concrete ap proach to the San Gabriel bridge has been torn away, and it is thought that it will take several days to rebuild it. The washout of the Garvanza bridge on the Pasadena line and the loss of trackage on the Long Beach line has resulted in the complete tie-up of the Salt Lake road. NEAR DROWNING-SEALS AND SNAKES FEATURES OF FLOOD SITUATION LONG BEACH, Jan. 3.—Samuel Hol loway and Bert Stephens, aged 14 and 13 years respectively, were driving yes terday in a buggy which suddenly was* engulfed in a slough near the Fred Bixby ranch, five miles east of town. The horse was drowned, the buggy wrecked and Holloway would have been drowned had not young Stevens run to the Bixby home and secured help. Stevens was found, clinging to the tulles, his face only above water. He was chilled and almost exhaused. The boys lost a shotgun, with which they were hunting ducks. No Salt Lake trains are running be tween here and Los Angeles owing to high water at Haynes, Clearwater and Hobtvrt. The last trains weie sent through Friday night and the tele graph wires were down Saturday. Workmen are busy on the line, work ing from both ends. The Long Beach Salt company, whose salt works is located on the Mats west of town, was the heaviest individual loser in this vicinity, J40.000 worth of fait being swept away from their grounds. It had been .stacked in long pllei. Foreman H. S. Fagan and his gang of section men, working on the .spur track of the Salt Lake, between the salt works and the Pacific Lumber com pany's plant, were rescued yesterday In a skiff, their bunk cars having been Hooded by the rising water. Three seals have bei»n found high and dry In town, during the last few days. one on American avenue, one near the Cafe Royal and another high on the beach. It is not really believed they were "rained down," but the manner of their coming is a mystery. A thou sand snakes of many different^ kinds were observed yesterday and today clinging to the Pacific Electric trestle near Wilmington. .They had been washed down in the swollen streams and clung to the piling. SALT LAKE ROAD WILL NOT OPERATE THROUGH TRAINS FOR THIRTY DAYS SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 3.—Railroad traffic is seriously delayed on account of the prevailing storms. Owing to washouts in the southern part of Utah and Nevada, it is probable no through trains will be run over the San Pfdio, Los Angeles & Salt Lake load within thirty days at least. The washouts are the most serious in the history of the road. Word was received today that 1000 feet of track and two bridges are out near Minto, at the mouth of Sawmill canyon. The greatest damage appears to be west of Caliente, Nev. All wires be tween that place and Los Angeles are down, and the full extent of the dam age is not known, but the officials fear the greater part of the track between Caliente and Rex, a distance of fif teen miles, is washed out. General Manager Wells, with a large force of men, is at Caliente. All pas sengers are being transferred at Ogden to the Southern Pacific, Snow in Wyoming and Colorado is causing delay on the Union Pacific and Denver & Rio Grande roads. On the Montana divisions of the Ore gon Short Line trains are reported blockaded by snow. HAIL FALLS AT SAN DIEGO SAN DIEGO, Jan. 3.—Hall fell here today. The rainstorm continues to night. J HAND OF GUILT POINTS TO STONE DECLARE JURORS WOULD HOLD MAN AND WIFE IN MURDER CASE DETECTIVES DISCOVER BLOODY FINGER PRINTS More Evidence Gathered in Endeavor to Find Person Who Murdered . Morgan Shiveley at San Gabriel After having viewed the home of Mr. ! and Mrs. O. A. Stone, located at San . Gabriel bouleyard and Broadway, , San Gabriel, and in which It Is believed that Morgan Shiveley re ceived wounds early Sunday morning which caused his death, the coroner's Jury returned the following verdict: I ■Morgan Siiiveley came to his death i on the second day of January, 1910, by hemorrhage following the cutting of the ulnar artery, said cutting in flicted by person or persons unknown to this Jury, and we recommend that Mr. and Mrs. Stone be held to the, higher court." The Jury, with Coroner Hartwell In , charge, convened early yesterday afternoon at Alhambra. Three wit nesses were called. They were Fred It. Donaldson, the motorman of the Pacific Electric car of which Shiveley formerly was the conductor; Frank Fowler, a resident of Alhambra and one of those who found the botfy of the dead man and viewed the hoTise early Stinday morning, and Dr. A. D. S. Me- , Coy of Pasadena, who performed the post-mortem examination. Repeats Sunday Statement Donaldson's testimony was identical! to the statement made by him Sunday ' morning. He related how. in company with Shiveley, he had ridden to Shlve- '■ lay's home and had then gone to his i own room for the night. "Stone came running in about 4:45 a. m.," continued Donaldson, "and said 'the Mexicans have gotten Shiveley.' We then went to Stone's house and ended by finding the body." Frank Fowler, who is one of the claim agents of the Pacific Electric railway, corroborated Donaldsons tes timony regarding the condition of the house and the finding of the body. The last witness called was Dr. A. D. S. McCoy of Pasadena, who stated that Shiveley met his death through ! hemorrhage caused by -the cutting of the ulnar artery. The cut which causod the genial conductor's death was inflicted Just below the elbow of I the left arm on the inside. Verdict Soon Returned Only a few minutes were neoeisary for the jury to return the verdict after bavins hoard the testimony and having Viewed the blood-bespattered kitchen of the Stone's home at San Gabriel. Meanwhile Stone occupied a cell at the county Jail and expressed little concern at the damaging evidence which hourly was being gathered. Late in the afternoon Sheriff Hammol and S. L. Brown, chief of th». detectives' bureau, were closeted with Stone, but little was gained from the interview. Stone idly toyed with a match arrfl refused to answer any but the sim plest of questions. He denied and af firmed nothing beyond clinging to his theory of Shiveley having been at tacked by Mexicans. Who the Mexi cans are, why they chose Shiveley for their victim and why they overlooked a gold watch and money in plain sight upon a shelf Stone would not answer. Although no definite charges have as yet been preferred against either Stone or Ills wife, it is believed by nearly every person who has visited the scene of the crimp that Stone in flicted the wound which caused Shive ley's death. As under the questioning of Sheriff Hammel and the detectives Stone's defense slowly fell to pieces he became more and more reticent, finally refusing to answer the simplest of questions. Finger Prints Copied All yesterday was occupied by Thief of Detectives S. L. Brown at the scene of the tragedy, and much satisfaction was expressed at the results obtained. Prints of the thumbs, fingers and hands of both Stone and Shiveley were made! ami the window shade through which Shiveley leaped in his effort to escape was taken to Los Angeles. Smeared and daubed with blood, from which Brown hopes to obtain finger prints tallying with those of the un fortunate Shiveley, and with but one small sliver of glass left to which ad here bits of human hair, this piece of evidence presents a most gruesome appearance. Careful search of the Stone home and the premises failed to reveal a medium-sized kitchen knife with which, It is believed, Shiveley's wounds were inflicted. To those familiar with the details of the crime Stone's theory that Shive ley was assaulted by an outside par ty appears nothing short of absurd. Stone claims that he fired a shot from his revolver in order to let persons know that Shiveley was In trouble. Why ho did not attempt to defend Shiveley, why ho did not follow Shive ley's supposed assailant when he lied through the window, and why the bul let was found to have been fired from an altogether different direction than that given by Stone the prisoner could not or would not answer. Exit Was Cut Off From the kitchen, where Shively slept, the only possible exit in case of emergency is the front door. That Shively was cut off from this door is evident from the fact that there are no blood stains in the hall leading to the front porch. In an endeavor to follow out Stone's story that Shively was being attacked, no possible entrance for his assailant hits been found. Every door of tho house either was locked or barricaded. Every window, with the exception of thoie in the kitchen, wag in the usual condition. Both kitchen windows were broken, one by Shively when he plunged headlong onto the wet ground, and the othej- by numerous articles belonging to Shively which were hurled through It. The window through which Shively escaped was the only one of tile two kitchen windows largo enough l.i ;i(lrnit tho body of a man. If Stone had befriended Shively, why did he not run to Stone's room or to the front part of the house instead of hurling himself through a window is Open at B:3© a. m.

Klatt jlO to ring out the old year and ring in the new, because his "ringer," in the shape of a cow bell, happened to descend upon the head of an aged man standing at the corner of Fifth and Spring streets New Tear's eve. When Klatt was brought before Judge Rose yesterday he quickly pleaded guilty to a charge of disturbing the peace, which prob ably meant disturbing the top piece of the aged man's anatomy. "What were you doing that you are before this court?" asked Judge Rose in his most judicial tone when Klatt stood up rather shame-facedly before his honor. "All I did was to welcome Mr. Nine teen Hundred Ten," answered Klatt In a light manner. "You also made an old man feel another question which has been asked and which has gone unanswered. Buttons Found in Ashes A careful sifting of the ashes in the stove at the scene of the tragedy brought to light several buttons and pieces of garter, both of which, it is believed, were Shively's property. Marshal Ben Parker of Alhambra stated yesterday that when he reached the Stone home early Sunday morning ho found that the ashes in the kitchen stove still were hot. The coroner's jury which recom mended the hclding of Mr. and Mrs. Stone to a higher court was composed of F. E. DeMerritt, A. J. Richards, B. D. Brown, J. B. Teagarden, I. W. Palmer and S. E. 'Williams. VICTIM WAS FORMER UNIVERSITY STUDENT LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 3—Morgan Shiveley, stabbed to death at San Ga briel, Ca!., was well known in Lincoln, where his parents and sister live. He was a student in the University of Nebraska, and for several years was in the railway mail service, running out of Lincoln. George A. Stone and Bhlveley were acquainted in Lincoln. Stone married a Lincoln girl and soon after their marriage they went to the Pacific coast. ILLINOIS PLACES BAN ON SOUTHERN RAISED CATTLE Governor Deneen Issues Proclamation Prohibiting Importation of Beeves from Several States SPRINGFIELD, Ills., Jan. B.—Owing to the prevalence of Texas fever among southern cattle a proclamation was issued today by Governor Deneen at the request of the state board of livestock commissioners, prohibiting the importation into Illinois from Cali fornia, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and several southern states between Feb ruary 1 and November 1, 1910, unless the cattle are accompanied by eertili cates from au inspector of the United States bureau of animal industry that they are free from the fever. If not so certified they must be un loaded at the National Stockyards in East St. Louis or the Union Stockyards in Chicago and placed in separate pens and either dipped under the direction of the inspector of the United States bureau of animal industry or Imme diately slaughtered. In the former case they may be shipped into the interior of the state. SECOND COLD WAVE OUT OF NORTHWEST IS PREDICTED WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.—Out of the northwest is coming a second cold wave which weather bureau officials promise will spread during the next thirty-six hours over the entire coun try east of the Misslssippf except east ern Florida. A temperature of 44 de rreei below zero was reported at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, and early today zero temperatures were reported fiom the northern Rocky mountain region and the northern plateau region. your welcome," chimed !r. the arrest ing ofßcer. "Well, the old gink happened to get in the way," replied Klatt. "I was swinging that bell just to show the new year that I was not afraid of him and to let Mr. Nineteen Hundred Nine know I was glad to part com pany with him. I guess I mistook that old man for Mr. Nineteen Hun dred Nine and so swatted him one for good luck." _» "Well, you walk over to Mr. Clerk and show him you are a real sport by handing him $10, or I'll let you get well acquainted with the inside of a jail," said his honor. •'Easy," said Klatt as he pulled out his wallet. As he quickly walked out of the courtroom he was heard to mutter, "Never again will I get huffed at an old year just because it is old." ASKS FOR ARREST OF ERRING SPOUSE WOMAN APPLIES FOR WARRANT AGAINST HUSBAND Accuses Him of Taking $200 of Her Savings and Part of Cloth. ing and Deserting Her Accompanied by her parents and a large following of sympathetic rela tives, Mrs. Joseph Horn, 1046 Maple avenue, appeared at police headquar ters last night and asked for assist ance in tracing her husband, who, she said, deserted her yesterday, taking all his own clothing, part of. her clothing and $200 of her savings. According to the young woman's story, she was married to Horn, who was employed at Levy's cafe, a year ago Christmas, and until recently their marital life had been one of serenity and happiness. She told that she was employed at the American laundry works and by frugality had saved $200 of her scant wages. That lior husband was young and Kooil looking she tearfully admitted, and gave this as a probable reason for his sudden departure, leaving her pen nlleaa and without clothing except her working dress. "He had been talking of goinff to Chicago," said Mrs. Horn, "and I agreed, but told him to wait until we saved more money and I would ao lompany him. I believe that he li;is been Influenced by a man in whose company he has been recently and is imbued with the idea that his good looks will win a wealthy wife in Chi cago. If he wanted to leave me, and said so, I would not have worried M much; but the last thing I expected was when I found he had taken tho J2OO I had placed away in a little cheat in our home. I want .he police to find and punish him." Mrs. Horn was instructed to appear at the district attorney's office this morning, where she will doubtless re ceive a complaint charging desertion. EXTENSIVE DAMAGE DONE TO BRIDGES AND ROADS NEAR ONTARIO ONTARIO, Jan. 3.—The rainfall in this city for the recent storm amounts to 5.14 inches. The large amount of water did great damage to roads and bridges in the surrounding country. The auto road in San Antonio canyon, which was built two years ago at a cost of $20,000, is nearly ruined, the decomposed granite has been washed away and great ruts torn in the road bed. All bridges between Pomona and Ontario have been torn out, also those between Upland and Claremont. The large well on Sixteenth street belonging to the San Antonio Water company has caved in and can only be repaired at a large expense, Classified Ad. Section NEARLY A MILLION PAID FOR ACREAGE LOCAL CAPITALISTS PURCHASE LARGE TRACT Lands Situated in Citrus Belt, Between Riverside and Corona, to Be Developed — Plenty of Water With the filing of articles of lncor* poration of the Arlington Land and Development company there comes to light one of the biggest land deals con summated this year in Southern Cali fornia. Robert Marsh & Co., the Wright & Callender company, both leading real estate firms, and George I. Lamey, a well known hydraulic en gineer, are the incorporators of the new company. The purchasers state that in taking over the 40,000-acre ranch known aa the El Sobrante de San Jacinto, con sideration $900,000, it was their purpose to subdivide and sell to local dealers. The San Jacinto ranch has been owned for the last twenty-five years by the San Jacinto Land company, limited, of London, Kngland, and managed in this country hy W. E. Pedley, civil en gineer, and Arthur Shuttleworta Holden. The ranch consists of about 40,000 acres, one great valley stretching away into another, and has been farmed by] tenants for barley crops, with the ex ception of some 1200 acres which are planted to citrus fruits, and are regard ed as among the very finest groves in the Riverside and Corona belt. In location these lands are ideal* lying as they do contiguous to the beautiful Victoria avenue colony, and being accessible either from Riverside or Corona means of beautiful drives through orange groves. Thera is abundant water in the valleys, tha drainage being from a vast territory; lying to the north and east. Springs crop out here, and there over the prop erty, and the riparian rights are re« garded as very valuable. The Arlington Land and Develop ment company is contemplating the establishing o" a townsite, the exten sion of an electric railroad, the con struction of reservoirs and also to pre pare the lands for irrigation. Tho ranch shows a variety of oppor tunities, one portion of it being pecul iarly adapted to alfalfa, another por tion presenting ideal slopes for lemon and orange land, while thousands of acres of level valleys are valuable for general farming. This sale is significant, in thgt it goes to show that the Los Angelea dealers fully realize the many advan tages that the Riverside citrus belt affords, other deals of large magnitude having been consummated by Los An geles dealers in this vicinity during tho past year.
