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."

east of Los Angeles the concrete ap

been torn away, and it is thought that
it will take several days to rebuild it.
The washout of the Garvanza bridge

resulted in the complete tie-up of the

engulfed in a slough near the Fred
Bixby ranch, five miles east of town.
The horse was drowned, the buggy

Stevens was found, clinging to the

were hunting ducks.
No Salt Lake trains are running be

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

Los Angeles & Salt Lake load within
thirty days at least.
The washouts are the most serious in
the history of the road.

The greatest damage appears to be
west of Caliente, Nev. All wires be

believed that Morgan Shiveley re

which caused his death, the coroner's

to this Jury, and we recommend that

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
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
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
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
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
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

If Stone had befriended Shively, why
did he not run to Stone's room or to

RINGING IN NEW YEAR
WITH COWBELL COSTS $10
It cost R. J. 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
"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.
