LEAGUE OF JUSTICE BRANDS BRUTALITY OF THE POLICE DISGRACE TO CIVILIZATION Beating and Bullying of Prisoners and Vio lation of Citizens' Constitutional Rights Scathingly Denounced THAT Los Angeles patrolmen beat, bully and make arrests at ran dom to win promotion in the de partment are some of the conclusions which the League of Justice has reached after an investigation into the conduct of affairs in the police sys tem in this city. In the report upon the investigation, sent yesterday to the police commis sion, »the city council and the civil service commission, the league con cludes that the whole system is wrong; that besides the above mentioned abuses prisoners are thrown into filthy cells in the city Jail anl are put through a cruel "third degree" at headquarters. Of the harsh treatment given prisoners by officers, the league hiis this to say, in part: "It is revealed that some officers are ■undub- harsh and cruel in their treat ment of prisoners. Protests from both men and women have come to the of fice of the league because of the cru elty to prisoners which has come to their notice. In at least one case pri vate citizens felt compelled to inter fere with a patrolman who was mal treating a prisoner without cause. It is not a practice common to the whole force, but rather a matter of individ ual caprice which should be subjected to discipline. In this connection the league desires to call attention to the profane abuse of prisoners, which is ■wrong in itself and which can do no good to the service. It matters not who the prosoner may be, the law pre sumes him innocent until proved guilty by due process, and he Is enti tled to humane treatment on every hand. "Still further it Is discovered that officers in their anxiety to make a good record of 'arrests and convictions' seek to induce prisoners to confess, with a promise that they "will be let off easy.' Rights Are Violated "We find some of the worst abuses of the whole department at the police station and city jail. Prisoners are brought before the desk sergeant and amount of bail assigned. If they fail to have the amount required, they are incarcerated in the city jail without the right of communication with friends or attorney. Then they are left to the mercy of a 'trusty' to get into communication with friends or attorney. This outrageous procedure was admitted recently before the po lice commission by an acting desk ser geant as a matter of common practice. Such an outrage against justice is a Court Discredits Story of Policeman and Acquits Pierson Despite the fact that Patrolman Finn attempted to prove that John Pierson was violating a city ordinance by smoking on the front end of a Cen tral avenue car Saturday afternoon, Police Judge Chambers yesterday ac cepted the straightforward statements df .Mr and Mrs. Plerfon, who stated that the accused pimply had an un llghted cigar in his mouth, and ad judged Pierson not guilty. Pierson was arrested Saturday after noon by Patrolman Finn, who also took into custody H. B. Truitt, a gen eral repairman for the Los Angeles Railway company. Finn claimed that Truitt was smoking and, so Truitt as serts refused to show his badge, he be ing in plain clothes at the time. Both men accompanied the officer to the police station and not until they arrived at the desk sergeant's window, so they assert, were they aware that Finn was an officer, he having refused to display his shield until that time Truitt's case was the first one called in police court yesterday afternoon. Finn testified that Truitt was smok ing in the front end of the car and was placed under arrest when he re fused to cease smoking or go to the rear end of the car. Truitt testified that the cigar was unlighted when he boarded the car and that he did not even place the cigar stub in his mouth during the entire time he was on the car. Mrs John Pierson corroborated his Btory and declared that the officer "scolded" Truitt and refused to exhibit APIARISTS STING BEE INSPECTORS LOS ANGELES AND SAN BER NARDINO MEN SCATHED Charge Is Entered at Concluding Ses sion of Convention That Super, visors Appoint Incompetents to Important Duties The California Bee Keepers' associa tion closed its twentieth annual con vention in the Chamber of Commerce building yesterday with the election of officers for the ensuing year and hear ing a rf-port from M. C. Richter, a Santa Barbara bee expert who was ap pointed to look into the work of George B De Sellem, recently appointed in specter of apiaries for Los Angeles county by the board of supervisors against the wishes of the bee associa tion. Richter's report contained charges of incompetency and negligence of duty on the part of the supervisors' ap pointee. Richter said that De Sellem refused to work Monday because of a strong wind that was blowing, and that In hi.s inspection Tuesday he exhibited gross ignorance in the handling of bees and in the knowledge of the foulbrood disease rapidly gaining headway among the hives. "De Sallem only In spected five frames out of every eight In his search for the disease," said Richter, "claiming that only the strongest frames need be examined." Roars of laughter greeted this ref erence to the inspector's knowledge of - AVER'S HAIR VIGOR ; Ingredients: SSS^'tt^AiiSa?-wlllS"^siSlt Show this to your doctor.

The league summarizes Its conclu sions as follows: "1. That there is a wrong notion of the efficiency of a policeman. "2. That the practice of 'arrests on suspicion' is not only wrong In itself and subject to unlimited abuse, but a danger to the rights of all citizens. "3. That some officers are unduly harsh and cruel in their treatment of prisoners. "4. That the attempt of officers to induce prisoners to confess so that their record of 'arrests and convic tions' may be increased is a perversion of justice and a danger to the com munity. Police Station and City Jail "1. That prisoners are Incarcerated without the right of communication with friends or attorney. "2. That Innocent men are Incarcer ated In the same manner as witnesses. "3. That the 'sweating process 1 and 'third degree' are practices, though common to all large cities, that ought not to be tolerated among civilized people. "4. That it is an outrage to use evi dence gained under duress against a prisoner. "5. That the indiscriminate incarcer ation of prisoners is productive of evil. The City Jail "1. That the jail is kept in a dirty, filthy, shameful condition. "2. That a system of ventilation could be devised and the building kept clean. "3. That there is no need to subject the taxpayers of this city to the ex pense of securing a new location and building. "4. That the crowded condition of the jail may be remedied and that jus tice may be facilitated by the estab lishment of a night court. "5. That there should be due pre caution against disease and other evils. "In conclusion the league suggests that some system'of training be de vised for this department. This could be done without expense to the city and would give greater efficiency. "With few exceptions the league has not given the detailed facts upon which this report lias been based, for it would make the report unnecessarily long. However, these facts and cases will be gladly submitted to this body whenever it desires them. Other mat ters, too. not mentioned here, will be brought to your attention. 1' The report is signed for the League of Justice by Louis A. Handley. his badge. Because of the absence of a witness for Truitt the case was con tinued by Judge Chambers to Friday afternoon. When Pierson's case was called Pa trolman Finn testified, as in the case of Truitt, that the accused was smok ing I? the front end of the car and refused to desist when asked. Finn then said he placed the man under arrest The two witnesses subpoenaed by Finn testified as to the conversa tion between the officer and Fierson. Mrs. Pierson stated that her hus band boarded the car and had an un lighted cigar in his mouth at the time. She declared emphatically that ho was not smoking and said the officer ar rested her husband without cause. She was angered at the manner In which her husband was arrested, and spoke vigorously and told her story without the least hesitancy. Pierson then testified and declared his cigar was not lighted and said the officer arrested him without cause. The accused stated he formerly was in the army and makes it a practice to famil iarize himself with the various ordi nances and to obey them. At the conclusion of the testimony of Pierson the judge adjudged the ac cused not guilty and discharged him from custody. Truitt stated a short time after his arrest that he would prefer charges against Patrolman Finn and have him haled before the police commission. It is thought Pierson also will prefer charges against Finn for the manner in which the officer made the arrest. the bee, which later changed to In dignant protests from the bee men against what they claimed was an in justice wrought upon them by the su pervisors whirh would result later in untold harm to the bee Industry. Other and more serious complaints were registered by San Bernardino bee men to the effect that their inspector of apiaries was neglecting his duties to the detriment of the industry, and that steps be taken to oust him from of fice. R. B. Herron Is inspector In that county, being placed In office five years ago by the superivsors of that county despite a strong protest from the bee men. President Burdick of the asso ciation said last night that repeated ef forts had been made to oust Herron from office, but so far without success, because of his friends on the board. Looks Like Life Job "Supervisor J. B. Glover," said Mr. Burdick, "when we asked him what wore the prospects of putting Herron out, told us that as long as the com plexion of the San Bernardino board was what it Is today Herron would hold his job. This condition exists in the face of the ravages of a new dis ease with which we are just beginning to cope and which threatens, If not checked, to lower the quality of Cali fornia honey and practically destroy our eastern market. Recent investiga tion shows that Herron spent fifty two days in the field and 106 days in his office last year." The association closed Its convention with a vote of thanks to the chamber of commerce, the agricultural depart ment of the University of California and Los Angeles Herald for its part in promoting the best interests of the association. Officers elected were: President, B. G. Burdick; secretary and treasurer, A. B. Shaffner; executive board, M. H. Mendleson of Ventura, J. W. Ferree of Newhall and Ralph Benton of the University of California. Alimony is rising along with other necessaries of life. LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 17, 1010. WILL TAKE IMPORTANT ROLE IN PASSION PLAY JOSEPH B. TROY AS PETER ACTORS IN PASSION PLAY WORKING HARD Production in 21 Acts to Be Presented at Auditorium Week of March 14 Rapidly Rounding Into Shape With every rehearsal of the Passion play, which will be presented at the Auditorium theater the week of March 14, the production is rounding into shape, and according to the statements of William Stoermer and others who are directing the production, will be a great success artistically. All the parts have been assigned and rehearsals are held four times each week. Nearly all the players are letter perfect in their lines already. It is not generally known that the Passion play is not to be viewed in a single night of a single performance. It takes three nights to present the great story. The play is in twenty-one acts, seven of which are given eacli night. They depict the life of Christ in a most intelligent manner, and in such a way that no possible offense may be taken. Father Cassian, who is one of the Franciscan priests interested vitally in the play, has declared that the char acter of Christ will be made dearer in the hearts and minds of all who witness the Passion play. The version to be presented in Los Angeles is in many respects like the play given at Ober ammergau, and so far as known there never has been tin objection raised to the performances there. Joseph B. Troy, one of the leading actors in the play, will assume the role of Peter. In order to guarantee the success of the Passion play from a financial standpoint subscriptions are being raised by those in charge of the pro duction. All the money netted from the play will be used in restoring the missions of California, President Taft at a dinner tendered him in Riverside said that the restoration of the mis sions was one of the most laudable ideas ever advanced. He said the his tory of California is based on the mis sions, and for that reason they should not be allowed to fall into decay. WANTS TO BAR MOTHER-IN-LAW HUSBAND DOESN'T LIKE HIS WIFE'S RELATIVES Sidelights on Domestic Life Shown in Divorce Trial —Woman Says Husband Threw Shoe at Her Appeal to the courts for an injunc tion to restrain a mother-in-l;iw from visiting her daughter's home is threat ened as one of the incidents in the di vorce action of Mary E. Lilley against her husband, William C. Lilley. The case was heard in part by Judge Houser of the divorce court yesterday and continued for two weeks. Before the continuance was ordered Judge Houser conferred with Carlyle Wynn and H. H. Appel, attorneys represent ing the wife and husband, respectively, and as a result efforts will be made pending the next hearing to effect a reconciliation. Mrs. Lilley says this is out of the question, because her husband will re peat the cruel treatment to which he subjected her before their separation. On one occasion, she said, he threw a shoe at her and several times swore. The posibility of patching up the do mestic breach is also doubted by Lilley, who says all his troubles are due to the effect of his mother-in-law's pres ence in his home. "I expect to appeal to the courts for an injunction to restrain this man's mother-in-law from visiting his home, either while ho is present or during his absence, provided a reconciliation is brought about," said Attorney Appel, as he left the court house. No action of this character was in stituted up to the time the courts closed yesterday. WHAT IS A REPUBLICAN? The president entertains highly inter esting opinions of so-called Repub licans who spend most of their time ex posing Republican measures.—Wash ington dispatch. And yet can any one blame them? Possibly their opposition is justified, If the Republican measures referred to are in the same class With the Repub lican tariff bill of last summer. Pos sibly, too, they don't know what the president considers a Republican measure, because he advocated one kind of tariff revision last year and was beamingly satisfied with just the opposite. Which was the Republican measure, anyhow—the revision that the president wanted, or the one which he got? He urged the former and he boosted the latter. He praised the m.n who most of all prevented him from getting what he wanted, and he was silent In regard to those who honestly tried" to carry out his pledges. We should say It was mighty hard these days to b^> a progressive Republican. Nobody knows whether a progressive Hi publican is a Murdoek or a Tuuney In the executive estimation. It looks like a clear case of "You'll be damned If you do and you'll be damned If you don't."—Puck. THURSDAY SPECIALS I 1 " . .

BUSINESS MAN TAKES OWN LIFE REGISTERS AT HOTEL UNDER ASSUMED NAME WRITES LETTERS TO RELATIVES AND CORONER Oliver O'Brien of San Francisco Kills Himself —Body Founfc Seated in a Chair Placed in Front of a Mirror Seated in a rocking chair, which had been placed in front of a mirror in a room of the-Hotel Chapman, Fifth and Wall streets, Oliver O'Brien, well known in business circles of San Fran cisco and whose home was in Oakland, was found lifeless last night. On the floor of the room, near the chair was a revolver, and a bullet wound through the right temple told the story of the man's suicide. O'Brien registered at the Chapman, Monday night, under the name of R. C. Johnson and had not been seen from the time he signed the hotel register, until his body was found. J. L. Smith, proprietor of the hotel, had made sev eral attempts to enter the room oc cupied by O'Brien, and believing the man had gone away unexpectedly did not become suspicious until last night. A Japanese servant reported he be lieved O'Brifin was In the room. Pro prietor Smith entered with a pass key und found the body. On the dresser in the room were several letters and notes. One was addressed to O'Brien's mother, another to his wife and a third to his brother, J. J. O'Brien, a member of the San Mateo Lumber company. These letters weresealed. A note found clutched In the hand Cf O'Brien dispelled any theory of murder. It was addressed to the coro ner and read: "Notify Niny brother, J. J. O'Brien of the San Matoo Lumber company, also the secretary of lodge 171, B. P. O. E., of Oakland. Body Identified The body was identified by an in surance card in one of the pockets, which stated the bearer was Oliver O'Brien, a salesman for the Robert Dol- lar & Sons Shipping and Lumber com pany of Sas Francisco, giving his busi ness address as the Merchants Ex change building-, San Francisco. His place of residence was 371 Sixty-third street, Oakland. Investigation showed that O'Brien, who in the course of his business visit ed Los Angeles several timos a year, registered at the Hotel Hayward, Feb ruary 10. He left the hotel, the fol lowing day without taking his baggage, and his whereabouts from that time until Monday night are unknown. It is said that O'Brien had been drinking and was despondent, and that he planned to end his life is indicat ed by the fact he registered at a small hotel under an assumed name. In the letter addressed to the Oak land lodge of Elks, part of which was made public was the following: "Take good care of my two sons until they have grown to manhood, and for God's sake keep them away from the curse of drink, which has caused the downfall of many good men." The letters to his mother and wife were not opened and will be given to relatives, who were notified last night of the death. It is expected his wife and brother will arrive soon from Oak land. When news of the suicide was re ceived a committee of the local lodge of Elks visited Bresee Bros, undertak ing rooms, where the body was taken and agreed to take charge of the funeral arrangements and send the body to Oakland. O'Brien was about 40 years old, and regarded as a successful salesman, having been engaged in the lumber busisess for a number of years. Besides bis mother, he leaves a wife and two sons in Oakland, and a brother, J. J. O'Brien. i HE GAVE*TV AWAY Numeberless are the stories told of George Washington. Upon one occa sion, while the American army was in camp, Washington heard that the colored sentries were not altogether re liable. He determined to teat the mat ter for himself. One night , therefore, when the password was "Cambridge," the general went out and walked up to a colored sentry. "Who goes there?" cried the sen tinel. "A friend," was the reply. "Advance, friend, and give the coun ter sign." "Roxburgh," said Washington. "No, eah," replied the soldier. "Charlestown," said Washington. The sentry lost patience. "I tell you, Massa Washington," he said empha tically, "no man go by here without lie say 'Cambridge.'—Seattle Times. FATALLY INJURED BY GRAND AVENUE CAR Former Mining and Oil Man Sustains Fracture of Skull That May Result in His Death F. E. Lightfoot, formerly a mining man and oil worker, was struck and fatally injured by a westbound Grand avanue car at the junction of Spring and Franklin streets last night. At the receiving- hospital it was found by police surgeons that Lightfoot was suffering- from a basal fracture of the skull and bruises about the head and body. Patrolman Fisher was an eye-wit ness to the accident, and in his report stated Lightfoot became confused in crossing the street and did not notice the approach of the car. He was struck and tosiied to one side. The car, No. 595, was brought to a stop, and at first it was thought Lightfoot was not seriously injured. A basal fracture of the skull was dis covered when the injured man was taken to the receiving hospital, and this, according to the police surgeons, will result in death.
