Man Struck by Automobile in Pe

Several Days in
L. M. Mosher, 49 years old, proprietor
of a carpet cleaning establishment, who
was struck by an automobile driven by
Harris M. Hanshue, a well known rac
ing driver, at Third and Spring streets,
Thursday night, died at the California
hospital yesterday afternoon. The body
was taken to the undertaking estab
lishment of Orr & Edwards, and the
coroner probably will hold an inquest
to determing the responsibility for the
The accident which resulted in the
death of Mosher was one of the most
spectacular that has happened in this
city for some time. Hansliue, accom
panied by his wife, who was convales
cent, was driving a high-powered rac
ing auto in Spring street. He was pro
ceeding slowly to enable his wife to
look In the show windows decorated
with Christmas goods. The motor was
not geared to slow speed and the en
gine stopped as the machine was creep
ing along. Hanshue got/ out of. the
auto and cranked it. As the engines
started a refractory clutch jarred In
place and started the vehicle. Han
shue sprang over the hood to stop tho
engines, but was not quick enough to
avoid striking Mosher, who was cross-
Ing the street.
Mosher lived at 321 Temple street.

[Special to The Herald.]
SAWTELLE, Jan. o.—Eleven vie-
I tims have been claimed by death as
I the result of the New Year's feast at
the home of Mrs. Dionisia Garcia de
Valdez at Illinois and Tenth streets.
A twelfth victim still is suffering. The
1 two tiny babes, too young to eat of
1 the poisoned food, are still kicking
their heels merrily, ignorant of the
'■ fact that most of their relatives have
! been made ready for the grave in the
short space of forty-eight hours.
Braulio Preciado was the last to die.
He answered death's roll call as No. 11
yesterday morning. His wife is still
living and is said to be out of danger.
Ptomaine poisoning from a jar of
pears eaten at the New Tear's feast
• is the answer given for the blotting
I out of three families, but there have
been strange questions asked and
I strange whispers bruited about, and

Will Be Long Funeral
Friday a long funeral train will pass
through Santa Monica to the little
Pasqual Marquez burying ground hid
den behind the old church and school
house in Santa Monica canyon.
Final plans for the funeral have not
been arranged, but it is understood the
services will occur probably at the
Finch undertaking parlors, with pos- |
sibly a short service at the Catholic
church of this city. Nothing will be
known definitely until after Coroner
Hartwell completes his Investigation of
the wholesale poisoning at the Inquest
to b' held tomorrow. The Inquest is
timed for 10 o'clock in this city.
Coroner Hartwell has decided to
conduct a rigid investigation of the
affair from beginning to end. There Is
a certain mysterious aspect to the case
in the minds of some that is thought
to influence the authorities in their
course of action.
No one here has ventured, with any
reasonable degree of certainty, to sug
gest that poison was administered to
the dinner party with criminal inten
tions, yet there is a feeling that pos
sibly some responsibility for the an
nihilating of almost three entire fami
lies may be fixed conclusively.
Little attention is paid by physicians
to the suggestion made shortly before
his death this morning by Braulio Pre
ciado, last of the victims to succumb
to the deadly poison, that the poison
was probably introduced into the fruit
because of the fact that the tops of
the cans in which It was contained
were old and had been used for the
same purpose on several occasions. It
is held by physicians Jiat such con
dition would not be required to pro
duce ptomaines. Deep interest Is cen
tered on the results of the coroner's
Mrs. Juana Preciado, the third of
the three daughters who feasted with
their mother Sunday at the Preciado
and Fernandez home at Sawtelle, when
] the poisoned pears were eaten, has
shown no symptoms of ptomaines.
This Is accounted for by herself. She
says when she tasted the psars she
found them sour and Immediately spat
| out the portion she had taken. She
j declared that she swallowed none of
I the fruit. Despite this, physicians are
i inducing her to receive a course of
treatment for the purpose of prevent
ing action of possible poison if present.
It was announced tonight that, to all
appearances, Mrs. Preciado would suf
fer no ill effects.
The unu-jally slow effect the poison
had upon Braulio Prediado is the sub
ject of wide discussion bera among
those who have watched the develop
emnt of the case. Although he aU; a
dish o.f the pears at the game time
with the other diners, he was the Uiki
to become ill. This was more than
thirty hours after th^ (east. Practical
ly all day Monday he worked steadily
and experienced no feeling of uneasi
ness until late Monday night. Then
he began a stubborn fight to ward off
the effects of the poison which was
slowly but surely getitng in its deadly
work. He took to bed yesterday aft
ernoon, only after he had given up all
hope of recovering.
Of the Preciado family, which orig
inally consisted of four, none remains
but the distracted mother, worn and
haggard with the vigil of three nigli£s
with her dead and dying relatives. It
is expected by friends that this in
Itself will have its ill effect upon her,
even if she escapes the terrible late
of her family. Mrs. Preciado is said
to be in dire financial straits, and
friends are raising a fund for her.
Alfonso Fernandez, husband of Mrs.
QuadaloupC Fernandez, an\png the first
to die, and 3-year-okl Tsabel Fernan
dez, who soon followed her mother, ar
rived at the grief clouded home today.
He has been working in the mountains
north of Topango canyon, far from a
telephone, and could not be given the
news sooner.
Dark-eyed little Maria Gundaloupe
Fernandez, all that Is left of the hap
py family to console the father, is
being oared for by Mrs. Adolph
Laughlin, a kind neighbor, who has a
little girl of the same age, 3 months.
The body of Mrs. Valdez still lies at
the Marquez home on Tenth street to
night. It was intended by relatives .to
remove the remains to Sawtclle today,
but this course waa no^ permitted by
Coroner Hartwell until he arrived cm
the icene and began his investigation.
The remains of Mrs. Dolores Garcia
and her two children, Frank and Al
fonso, are resting at the Klrkelle un
dertaking parolrs In this city, while
the seven other bodies are at the Finch
morgue at Sawtelle.
SYRACUSE, N. V., Jan. s.—Twenty
seven cases of ptomaine poisoning, all
but one traceable to the ' eating of
cream puffs or chocolate eclaires, have
been discovered. In this city.
M. H. Newmark Accepts Position
That Pays No Salary and Can
Submit No Bids While*
In City's Service
The personal sacrifice made by M.
H. Newmark in accept '•• 4 a position
on the harbor commission was shown
to some extent yesterday when Mr.
Newmark lost several thousand dollars
by reason of the fact of his being a
public servant.
A few dajrs ago the board of public
works opened bids for commissary
supplies for the camps it maintains
along the aqueduct. The firm of M.
A. Newmark & Co. was the lowest
bidder on fourteen or fifteen items, and
the contract for these items, amount
ing to several thousand dollars in the
course of the year, was awarded to
this company.
Soon after the award was mt. 'c, and
before the contract had been signed,
the mayor appointed M. H. Newmark,
T. B. Gibbon an ' Stoddard Jess as the
harbor commission.
M, H. Newmark is a member of the
firm of M. A. Newmark & Co., and
the city attorney ruled that under the
provisions of the city charter the New
mark company could not sign the con
tract while one of its members was
in the city's service.
Mr. Newmark, with the other har
bor commissioners, gives the time he
spends in the interests of the harbor
to f " city without compensation, as
no salary is attached to the position
of harbor eommlßSln-er, and in addi
tion loses valuable city contracts that
would put real money into his pocket.

Strong Recognition of The Herald
On the Part of local Advertisers
FOR many months past The Herald has. steadily
gained in advertising, and, while advertiser and the
management of The Herald have been more than
gratified with results, it was not considered necessary to
rush into print with a glowing story of success, for one
can hear on every side commendations of the policy of
The Herald and congratulations upon the wonderful
progress made.
However, it is but just to our old and new advertisers
to make a statement of increased business for the last
quarter ending December 31, 1909, when The Herald
had to its credit an increase of 42,586 inches over the
same period of 1908.
Furthermore, The Herald made the largest gain of
any paper in the city during the month of December, a
gain of 15,837 inches over December, 1908.
This is simply an evidence of recognition of The
Herald by the business men of Los Angeles.
The Herald is proud of the stand it has taken, the
battles it has won and prizes at full value the loyal sup
port of the business men of Los Angeles.
Further Search of the Scene of the
Tragedy Reveals Articles Which
May Be Important
in Case
A complaint, jointly charging C. A.
Stone and his wife, Clara, with the
murder ot Morgan Shiveley, was issued
by Deputy District Attorney Frank
Blair yesterday and later tiled in the
justive court at Alhambra, where war
rants for the arrests of Stone and his
wife were issued. These were served
on the couple in the county jail.
The complaint issued yesterday is
sworn to by tenjamin F. Parker, con
stable of Alhambra, and while the cir
cumstances surrounding the killing of
Shiveley are of such a character that
there still remains in the mindj of the
investigators a doubt as to the connec
tion of Stone and his wife with the
crime, the tiling of. the charge will
have tl.o effect of keeping the man and
woman in jail while further investi
gation is bMng made.
Interesting Finds Made
To carry on this investigation fur
ther search was made of the house in
which the tragedy occurred and the
surrounding grounds. The results of
this search were brought to Chief De
ttctive Brovne's office yesterday, con
sisting of a shirt of the size worn
by Stone, a butcher knife, carrying
small rust marks; a razor, several col
lars belonging to Stone and a number
of receipted grocery bills, showing that
the larder in the Stone house was sup
plied by Shiveley.
• Tlk shirt \ 3 ihe object that drew
the most a'tention in the <'.strict at
torney's office. Constable Parker said j
he found the 'garment under a cactus 1
bush, 150 yards away from the house \
where Shiveley was killed. The shirt
was still damp from the rains, but a
number >t small led spots were found
on the bosom and were examined
closely. These may later be examined
by a chemist;
Knife and Razor Not Important
Detective Browne said he did not
believe the butcher knife, which was
j found on a shelf in one of the rooms,
] played any part in the tragedy. Be
• lief that the razor was connected with
the murder, ho said, must also be j
I abandoned. It was found on a shelf
lin the bathroom and no bloodstains
I could be discovered on the blade..
Although Stone and his wife were
questioned closely yesterday neither of
them made aiiy admissions that would
strengthen the suspicion already di
rected against them. They probably
will be arraigned in the Alhambra
justice court today.
Patrolman Displays Remarkable For.
titude When Foot Is Crushed
by Train
Remarkable fortitude was exhibited
by Patrolman Louis Canto, who sus
tained a crushed right foot when he
| attempted to board an outbound pas-
I senger train at Fourth and Alameda
, streets yesterday afternoon. When
' taken to the receiving hospital he
begged the surgeons not to notify his
aged mother of his injuries, and told
them to amputate the injured toes
without administering an anaesthetic.
Canto attempted to board the third
baggage car of an outbound Southern
Pacific passenger train. He missed the
step and his right foot slipped under
! the wheels. He jerked out his injured
I foot and fell away from the track. He
j was picked up by the train crew of an
j other train and taken to the patrol box
at Third and Alameda. He was sup

police station and asked for an ambu
The surgeons found that all the toes
on the right foot were crushed, and
I amputated them at the first joint. The
surgeons persuaded Santo to take an
anaesthetic. Later he was removed to
the Sisters' hospital. Canto is unmar
ried and lives with his mother at S3O
Bartlett street.
