President of Pasadena Rapid Transit
Line Says Sister Cities Will Be
Brought Closer To.
"Twelve-minute car service between
Pasadena and Loa Angeles within a
year and a fare of 10 cents" is the
prophecy of Horace M. Dobbins, pres
ident of tho Pasadena Rapid Transit
company, made in an informal talk
which he gave at the semi-monthly
meeting of the North, Northeast and
Northwest Improvement association
yesterday afternoon in the chamber
of commerce committee rooms. In
speaking of the proposed lino Mr. Dob
bins said:
"Already the company has acquired
224 pieces of private right of way, rep
resenting six miles of the line, which
will be nine miles long. 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."

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.

Notes Left by Bedside Indicate That
Brooding Over Separation from
His Wife Was the Cause
of Rash Act
Brooding over the separation from
his wife, who is suing him for divorce
in Kiversldo where they formerly
lived, F. 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.
The young man left a note addressed
to his wife and to his sister. The noto
to his wife reads:
"Dear wife. 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.
"I am going to take steps to put him
in an asylum," said Mrs. Young, "for i
1 am fearful of the- consequences if he
remains at large. I think he must be
deranged from sorrow at tho separa
tion from his wife and child, who left
him several months ago."
Despondent because of his wife's
death, which occurred a week ago, An
drew Eckstein, 40 years old, 1044 Fe
dora street, a seed house salesman,
committed suicide. Eckstein slashed
his throat with a razor, opened an
artery In his left wrist and wrapping
a rug about his shoulders and neck
wedged his head Into a gas grate in (
the parlor of his home and turned on
the gas.
The body was found yesterday |
morning by William Hienman, a
friend, to whom Eckstein had confided
that because of the loss of his % wife he
had become tired of living and con
templated Bulcido. T* body is at
Pierce Brothers' undertaking parlors.
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
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.
John W. Stowcrs, 35 years old, a sec

lors. Stowers came to Los Angeles
six weeks ago from Pittsburg, Pa., and
recently secured employment with the

M. Takewawa, After Release from tha

In Los An. . j

After nine days of confinement In

cashier of the defunct Japanese bank,
First and Wilmington streets, was re
leased yesterday morninß on $5000 bail,
and rearrested immediately and
brought to Los Angeles charged with
a misdemeanor, under the state law.
The Los Angeles complaint alleges
that Takewawa, while cognizant of tha
fact that the bank was insolvent, con
tinued to receive deposits, which have
not boon accounted for. After remain
ing in jail several hours, friends of
Takewawa obtained his release on $100
The bail was placed at a small
amount, after conference with Deputy
District Attorney Paul J. McCormick
and Police Judge Frederickson. As
Takewawa already was under $5000
bonds and owns a handsome residence
at 1-M West Jefferson street, nominal
bail was deemed sufficient to warrant
his appearance in court to face tho
misdemeanor charge,
Takewawa was arrested at his homn
January 11, and until yesterday hi«
friends were unable to raise the $5000
bail demanded. When the money was
produced the Santa Ana officials, fear
