The right of way already acquired extends from the business section of Pasadena to two miles within tho city limits of Los Angeles. From tho termination of the acquired right of way the company has three prospective rights of way into Los Angeles and Pasadena, and as soon as the site far the terminals are selected the remaining rights of way will be obtained. This selection will take place aa soon as the 6000 re maining shares of tho capital stock of $3,000,000 have been disposed of. "Upon reaching the business section 'of Los Angeles the road will be built underground to the point of Its ter minus. All the rights of way aequlrod so far and those which are to be ac quired are all private and not held un-* dor franchises from the city. Upon the completion of the road, which is expected to be within this year, trainer will leave each terminus every twenty minutes, and it is estimated that at least 20,000 persons will be carried over the line in a day from Pasadena, Los Angeles and intermediate points."

ROSS CLARK HOME FROM SALT LAKE CITY High Official of Railroad Has Been Conferring Regarding New Route In Nevada J. Ross Clark, second vice presi dent of the Salt Lake railroad, re turned yesterday from Salt Lake City, where he went last week for a confer ence with other officials of the road re garding: the rebuilding of the Salt Lake line through the desert. Although E. G. Tllton, chief engi neer of the road, last week made a preliminary report to Mr. Ciark and to W. H. Bancroft, first vice presi dent, water and weather conditions were such in the Meadow valley that tho feasibility of rebuilding the line through that locality could not be defi nitely determined. The present Indications are that there is little prospect of building again through the Meadow valley wash region as there are two survey ing parties out looking for new routes. Definite action will not be taken by the railroad officials until reports are received from the surveying parties, which will probably be in ten days. CHAPLINS PREPARING APPEAL When Frank N.

L. Donnell, 30 years old, scion of a well known Riverside family, turned on tho gas yesterday after lock- Ing himself in his bedroom ut the home 0 fhls aister, Mrs. Nettie Young, 354 South Clay street, manager of the Col by and Iteed cafeteria in South Hill street, and was found shortly after wards by several friends who were to accompany him to San Diego. A strong odor of escaping gas led to his discovery and breaking down the door of his room they arrived Just in time to sabo his life. At thu re ceiving hospital where he was treated, tho police surgeons stated that, had his friends been five minutes later in „ finding Donnell, they could not havo revived him.

Forgive me for doing this but I am drinking and my love for you Is too great to permit separa tion. Take good care of our little girl and be good. Goodby, your husband." Tho note to his sister asks that she forgive him for all the trouble he has caused her and that drink and his separation from hl3 wife is the cause of his action. According to his bister, Mrs Nettle Young, this Is the second attempt hade I by her brother on his life the last hay- | ing been made by swallowing a large dose of carbolic acid several years ago ] in San Bernardino after drinking heavi- | ly for a week. Mrs. Young is fearful that her brother will yet take his life and states that, when he Is under the influence of liq r, ho has struck her many times and threatened her life.

GAS COMPANY ACCUSED OF BEING A NUISANCE North Main Street Property Owner Declares In Court That Smells and Noise Cost Him Money Allegations that the proximity of the Economic Gas company's works depre ciated the value of his property and caused tenants to remove are made, in the suit of Newton W. Crane against the corporation, trial of which was be gun in Judge Moss' court yesterday. Crane demands aggregate damages of $20,000. He owns five dwellings in the. 1600 block on North Main street, his property being located within forty feet of the gas works. The damage to his property, ho says, was caused by foul gas, smoke and the noise of escaping steam. A peculiar incident In the trial was the discovery that a witness who had almost concluded his testimony never had been subpoenaed In the case. This witness was Herman Rambaud, IGU6 North Main street, and his noncommit tal responses to questions propounded by Crane's attorneys puzzled the latter. "I know nothing about the matter," said Rambaud, when asked concerning conditions in the neighborhood of the gas works. "Is not your name Herman Ram baud?" asked the puzzled attorney. Rambaud said it was, and added he lived at the place where the subpoena was served. It was some time before it developed that Rambaud has a son bearing the same name as his father. The subpoena, it was stated, was In tended for the son, who had received it but turned it over to his father, believ ing It to be a grocery bill. SECTION FOREMAN KILLED John W.
