REV. THOMAS J. CONATY IS FOR ANNEXATION BELIEVES HOLLYWOOD SHOULD BE IN GREATER CITY Noted Churchman Sees Mutual Ad« vantages If Merger of Two Communities Is Ef fected Rt. Rev. Thomas J. Conaty of the diocese of Monterey and Los Angeles Is enthusiastic over the prospects of the consolidation of Hollywood with Los Angeles at the election to lie held Monday. On coming to Los Angeles seven years ago to assume the head of one of the largest dioceses in the United States, Bishop Conaty became a "booster" for Los Angeles. He has spread the work of the church to all parts of the city, increasing the num ber of parishes from six to sixteen, aside from the chapel on the site of the proposed new cathedral, which ho says shows his confidence in the city better than words could express. "It will be a splendid thing both for Los Angeles and for Hollywood when the latter is a part of the city," said the bishop in speaking of the proposed annexation. "Los Angeles has had a wonderful growth and Hollywood is a splendid suburb. It will bo good for both cities to bo merged." The bishop said that ono of the strongest proofs of his belief in the future of Hollywood is the College of the Immaculate Heart, a college for girls conducted by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart, which three ye irs ago erected a large college building costing nearly $200,000. Many residents of Hollywood are members of the Catholic church, and the clergymen of that denomination have,taken a lively interest in bringing Hollywood into the city. In this move ment Bishop Conaty has concurred heartily, although, according to his usual custom, he haH taken no active steps In political issues, simply lending his influence to the issue which he firmly believes will be a great benefit alike to Los Angeles and Hollywood.

PRELATE WHO FAVORS UNION OF CITIES BISHOP CONATY FIVE HURLED TO PIT IN ELEVATOR TWO MAY DIE AS RESULT OF ALAMEDA ST. ACCIDENT EMPLOYERS ARE INVESTIGATING CAUSE OF DISASTER Most Seriously Injured Are John McComb,. Well Known Ath. lete, and William E. Rail Five employes of the Hughes Manu facturing und Lumber company, 1430 Alameda street, were hurled into the durk pit of an elevator shaft rtly after the morning whistle calling them to work had blown yesterday, when an elevator upon which they had started to descend from the second story fell with a crash to the basement. Tho men were pushed and pummeled about in their fall by two trucks loaded with doors and window frames wh.ch were on tho elevator with them. As a result two may die. The Injured John McComb, 1420 West Twenty third street, foreman; possible basil fracture of skull, right'knee crushed; believed to be dying; at California hos pital. William E. Rail, foreman. 1427 East I Sixty-ninth street, right arm frac tured, dislocated shoulder, bck wrenched and possibly fractured, se vere cuts and bruises about the h"ad and body; condition serious; at Cali fornia hospital. Jacob Golish, 1721 East Newland street, both ankles broken, lacerations and bruisea about the head and body: condition serious; at Crocker street hospital. P. G. Wiley, broken left foot, bruised about body; at Crocker street hospital. E. A. Case, back and arm wrenched, badly bruised about head and body; taken to Crocker street hospital. No Cause Discovered The accident cannot be accounted for by elthor the proprietors or the em ployes of the lumber company. Ac cording to C. E. Perkins, secretary of the company, no trouble had been ex perienced with the elevator before, and yesterday morning it was In perfect running order. The fact that two of the passengers were foremen of the concern and that many of the employes In the mill were under their jurisdic tion has given rise to a question as to whether the elevator cable had been tampered with before It made its t>\ti\ trip. An investigation is being made, Immediately after the accident em ployes of the company rushed into the basement and with great difficulty ex tricated the injured men from the wreckage and carried them to the first floor. Intense excitement was created in the vicinity, as the crash of tho ele vator striking the basement floor was plainly heard ' for blocks around. Per sons living near the mills and pedes trians passing by crowded about the shaft, hindering for a time tho work of rescue. Dr. J. L. Jones of the T^os Angeles hospital was summoned immediately and cared for the injured men until they wore removed to the hospitals, It Is feared that JleComb, who is well known in athletic circles, will die, the attendants at the California hospital stating that he is suffering from a basal fracture of the skull. Rail, who is an aged man and who is suffering from a possible fnoture of the backbone as well as a broken arm and dislocated shoul'or, is thought to have little chance for recovery.

STONE SAYS HE KNOWS SLAYER MOTORMAN SO TESTIFIES IN MURDER HEARING STATEMENT FOLLOWED FINDING BODY OF SHIVELY Man and Wife Have Preliminary Ex. amination on Charge of Being Implicated in San Gabriel Crime George A. Stone and his wife, Clara Stone, both charged with the murder of Morgan Shtvely, a Pacific Electric conductor, on January 2, sat stolid i and unmoved through their prelim inary examination, which was begun yesterday before Justice William M. Northrup in the Alhambra court room in Bast »un Gabriei. The defendants as they tat beside i their counsel, Jud Hush and Le \ Compte Davis, seemed to have no In terest in the proceedings and remained ; indifferent as the facts of the case were being reviewed by the witnesses. Only when Donaldson ttated that alter finding the body of Shlvely, Stone de clared, "I know who killed him," did the defendants appear to take notice of what was going on before them. At this point Stone sat upright in his. chair with his arms folded and with I a staring look tried to catcli the eye of the witness. Many Curious Present The small courtroom was crowded to overflowing with curious long be fore court was called to order. The doors and windows were lined with person! and every available" space which offered standing room was oc cupied. The first witness was Alfred H. Street, deputy county surveyor, who identified a drawing of the. interior floor plan of the house which he made at the request of S. L. Browne, chief. detective of the district attorney's office. Dr. A. D. S. McCoy, autopsy surgeon | of Pasadenu., described the wounds on ■ Shively'a body and testified that the I one which severed the artery in the i left arm was the only one which was | sufficient to cause death. He stated, that the man's bleeding to death with- j in from twenty to thirty minutes after j Its inlliction resulted from this wound. He also testified that there were wounds in the palm of the hand, which indicated that they had been caused by grabbing the blade of some sharp instrument and the Instrument having been pulied away from his hand as he grabbed it. Pictures of the wounds on the arm were Introduced as evidence. Upon the completion o£ re-cross ex amination adjournment was had for noon. ■ Motorman Testifies At the opening of the afternoon ses sion the first witness to be called was Fred H. Donaldson, Alhambra, who was the motorman on Shively'a car, and who had known the defendants for tho past five moi.ths. The ques tions put to Donaldson by Joseph Ford, deputy district attorney, were confined chiefly to details regarding the relations between Mr. and Mrs. Stone and Shively and tho facts and circumstances which happened the night before the murder was com mitted; also the timo at which he and Shively left their car after get ting through with work on the night of the murder, and from tho time they left their car to go homo until the body of Shively was found. Donaldson said that he and Shively parted at the entrance of the Stone residence about 2:15 a. m. and that there were two lights burning in the house, which was always the case, as they left the lights lighted for Shively. "About 4:45 o'clock in the mdrning I was awakened at my house by Mr. and Mrs. Stono. who came to my house and informed me of tho tragedy. Stone kept repeating, 'They got Mor gan,' " testified Donaldson. Cry for Help Heard "Stone said he heard a cry for help in the kitchen of his house and that he rushed down stairs, but that bhive ly was gone and that tho kitchen was in disorder. The windows and the lamps were broken and the tables and chairs overturned, and it appeared that there h-i,l been a struggle. The iloor was covered with blood and the bink, which had been torn off the wall, was partly filled with blood. "Stono said that Shively must be found or ho would freeze to death, as ho was clad only in his night clothes, and it was raining at the. time. Stone and I wont back to his house to search for Shively, while Mrs. stone remained with my wife, We first went Into the kitchen and then started to hunt for Shively in the shed at the rear of the house and all around in tho neighborhood. At dawn several of the neighbors had been summoned, ami the search was continued until it was found in Broadway street, near Eighth street, about 1800 feet from the ' Stone house. At the time of the find ing of the body I was within a couple of hundred feet from the place where tho body was found and saw Stone coming up the wash toward me. We heard the cries of those who had found the body and hurried to the place where it was lying. Stone did not go up and look at tho body, but asked, 'Is he dead." Upon saying this he turned around and started back to the house." Dining Room Described Donaldson was examined very close ly as to the position of the table in the dining room of the Stone house and also as to the mirror, lamp, trav eling bag and wash basin which had been thrown out the window. Hn also testified that after returning to Stone's house after finding Shively's body Stone told him that he had fired a shot from the dining room towards the rear porch, thinking that by doing so he would scare away any one who happened to be in tho kitchen. Dis trict Attorney Ford examined the wit ness very carefully and thoroughly as to the revolver and rifle found in Stone's possession. The court after finishing the exam ination of Donaldson adjourned until Monday morning tit 9:30 o'clock. It is thought that the examination will last for two or throe days, as there are quite a number of witnesses yet to bo questioned. Eat at the Angeius grill.

Auto in Parade Comes to Grief Spring street at Its busiest hour yes terday was startled by the apparition of a suffragette uprising. A broken down auto, blocking the Third street crossing, and a little group of woe-be gone but deter. -Ined individuals in skirts lent color to the Idea that a projected raid on the city hall had been Intercepted by the diligence of the police. They were sham suffragettes—mem bers oi: the cast of "Angel Town," the breezy Gamut club satire on municipal politics, now running at the club thea ter on South Hope street. A part of the theme of "Angel Town" concerns an imagined surrender of civic au thority to the leader in a local cru sade for votes for women. To impress this fact on the general pedestrian pub lic, members of the club dressed up in skirts yesterday and proceeded to pa rade the downtown streets in autos, to the equal defiance of propriety, po lice and autoists' luck. The latter fac tor promptly showed its face at the corner of Spring and Third. Some thing went wron^ with one of the au tomobiles, and a halt was occasioned. While crowds gathered to peer into the faces of the timidly shrinking and much befiounced women, the chauffeur tried to locate the trouble. Alter half an hour's struggle, the machine was righted and the parado proceeded mer rily on its way. "Angel Town" will have Its last pro duction tonight.
