Robbins, an as sayer, and his wife. Uenevlevo A. Llndsay-Robbina, was received from the City of Mexico yesterday, and through Its receipt publicity was for the first time given to the story of an al leged bigamous marriage, the facts in connection with which having been carefully concealed for nearly three weeks. Robbins is accused of bigamy, and ■while no complaint against the woman who accompanied him was sworn to, the telegram announces her apprehen sion and that she will be held pending instructions from the authorities of this county. The complaint against Robbins Is on file in Justice A. R. Ling's court, where it wae recorded January 29 .by C. J. Lindsay, 1706 Bridge street, a lumber man and father of the woman to whom Robbins is said to be wrongfully wed- Fieeing from California In a direc tion opposite to the one taken by Rob bins and his alleged illegal bride aro his first wile, Mary Jack Robbins, and his mother, Mrs. Francis Caldwell Rob bins, wife of a wealthy mining en gineer living at 915 West Filth street.- The purpose of this flight, It is said, is to escape the humiliation they be lieve would attend the publication of the affair. Will Be Brought Back Sheriff Hammel or one of Ills depu ties will, It Is expected, leave for Mex ico City Monday to bring Robbins and the woman back to Los Angelea. Bobbins, it was learned yc-s-eraay, married Miss Mary Jack in British Co lumbia In 1902, and came to Los An eeles with his wife, who had become an invalid about two and a half years ago They lived at the family home, 915 West Fifth street, and Bobbins worked with his father in the Union Trust building. Miss Lindsay was employed as stenographer in an office adjoining the one occupied by tho mining en gineer and his assayer son. The couple spent a large portion or their time together during the past year, and Robbins was a frequent visitor at the Lindsay home, where. It Is said, he lepresented himself to be a single man. He procured a license to marry Miss Lindsay January 8, the wedding taking place quietly, and the couple departed almost Immediately, leaving no word as to their destination. The following day Lindsay Intro duced himself to the elder Robbins. •■I see your Bon has married my daughter," he said. Robbins replied there must be a mistake, that his son was married, but he had heard him speak of another person bearing the same name, anfl suggested tho possibility that this per son was the Benedict. Girl's Father Complains Then an unavailing search was made for the younger Robbins or 7 for' in formation concerning his supposed double. Nothing was learned about the latter while an undefined rumor placed the assayer and the woman in Mexico. Mr Lindsay swore to a complaint be fore Deputy District Attorney Keyea January 29. and telegraphic instruc tions were Immediately sent to the authorities of the southern republic for tho apprehension of the couple. About the same time Mrs. Bobbins, mother of the alleged bigamist, hur riedly left Los Angeles, taking with her the invalid daughter-in-law. They evaded the efforts of the authorities here to apprehend them in order that they might be returned as witnesses should Robbins be arrestod. They went to several places In Oregon, stop ping only a short time in each town, and aro now said to be In Spokano with friends. Robbins' Interests are in the hands of Schweitzer & Hutton, attorneys, who declined to state yes terday what their defense would be in the event he is returned to Los Angeles for trial. A dispatch to Tho Herald from Mexi co City states that Robbing is being held in Jail without bond. CHINA TAKES STEPS TO POLICE MUKDEN RAILROAD Several Hundred Soldiers and Other Officials Sent to Manchuria by the Peking Authorities TOKIO, Wednesday, Feb. 17. —China is taking steps to police the line of the An Tung-Mukden railway with her own men, and for this purpose sent in several hundred Chineyo soldiers and police. This was commented upon by the Japanese newspapers as somewhat arbitrary action, in view of the agree ment between Japan and China and the fact that, under this agreement, the question of the policing of the route was left open for further consldera- However, the Japanese officials state the authorities have no intention of making any protest, so long as tho re quired protection is afforded by the Chinese authorities. When the railroad has been reconstructed and the actual carriage of freight commenced be tween Japan and the Siberian railroad liy this route, the question of policing may or may not become serious; mean whilo the Japanese are content to work under tho protection of the Chi nese authorities, and Japan recognizes China's sovereign rights upon the soil.

A dismissed employe stepping up be hind Charles Atherton, known as the top boss, drew a revolver, and crying: "To pay you back!" fired three shots. Atherton fell, probably fatally wounded. The shooting occurred In the midst of tho work of recovering the 177 bodies entombed in the mine. Eleven bodies had been brought up. Atherton was standing at his post at the mouth of the shaft, working to get the bodies up. About him sto«d a circle of widows and orphans, all eager to learn whether the next life of the hoist would bring up their dead. Suddenly the shots were fired in rapid succession and a man ran from the crowd. In the confusion it was whispered that W. W. Taylor of Chi- oago, general superintendent of the mine, was the victim. But a moment later Atherton was found lying on the ground. Mob Followed Him A hundred enraged miners, headed by Sheriff Skoglund, ran down the rail road tracks after the would-be assas sin while the crowd behind shouted "Lynch him! Shoot him!" The fugitive was captured in the main street, the revolver still in his hand. He gave his name at Peter Brown, who was later Identified as Melaa Manditch. He Bald he shot Atherton because he had been refused a job, and had been looking for James Steele, superintendent of the company mine here and at Granville, 111. Later a mob surnnunded the Jail and tonight the prisoner was taken to Princeton for safe keeping. Atherton came here from Granvlll'", where he has a wife and family. He was taken to tho hospital at La Salle, where it was said he probably would not recover. Tho peculiarly well-preserved condi tion of the bodies found today gave hope that the recovery of the other bodies will not be as difficult as was expected. One state mine Inspector said the bodies resembled mummies. Only seven were identified. Among them Steel, superintendent of the company When the alarm of fire spread through the mine the father of the boy dragged his son several hundred feet Tho father was discovered by rescuers and taken up alive. The boy was overlooked. CRUISERS WEST VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND DISABLED Burn Three Times as Much Coal as Sister Vessels in Run from Honolulu to U. S. VALLEJO, Cal., Feb. 18.~It has been learned at Mare Island navy yard the cruiaeri West Virginia ai*l Maryland wero both in poor condition when they reached San Francisco from the orient last Monday. Tho West Virginia, It is asserted, en tered port, running only one engine with two cylinders, instead of her four engines with four cylinders each. Tho conditions in the entflM room wore such that Lieutenant Commander Raines of the cruiser not only recom mended the vessel bo sent to Mare island for a general overhauling of her machinery, but has filed a formal pro test with the navy department against taking the West Virginia to sea when the fleet sails form San Francisco. Both the West Virginia and the Maryland, it is said, consumed from 260 to 300 tons of coal dally on the run from Honolulu, while the California and South Dakota, running at the same speed, used only 100 tons each. The Pennsylvania is also reported to be much in need of an overhauling. 200 IN LINE TO GET YUMA LANDS CROWD WILL CAMP IN STREET UNTIL MARCH 1 Women and Children Among Home Seekers—Coveted Chances to Enter Bring Fancy Offers The high cost of living in tho cities and the better opportunities afforded by living the simple life on a farm Is why 83 per cent of the men and women In the now famous Yuma line, reaching from the government land office in the Chamber of Commerce building to First street, are holding their places for ten more days and nights. From W. S. McMannon, a former soldier in the Philippines, who took up his position at the entrance to the building at 11 o'clock Thursday morning, to Aaron Hopefleld. a feeble, white-haired old man, at the extreme north end of the block, the line had grown to 200 per sons up to a late hour last night, whereas but 173 farms are to be dis tributed. Clutching his white police ticket bearing his number, Hopefleld refuses to doubt for an instant that many of those before him will either tire from their long vigil or that a suf ficient majority are holding their places without the necessary qualifications, and before the final opening March 1 expect to find a buyer. In fact along the entire line, among young men and old, married and single, the utmost optimism prevails. Worried by Rubbernecks The long line of humanity attracted large crowds passing on Broadway, and the "rubberneck" instinct asserted itself so strongly that the police de partment deemed It wise to send an other policeman to keep the street open. Shoppers, business men, loungers and photographers swarmed about ask ing questions until they brought sharp retorts from the Yuma "waiters." "These 'rubbernecks' worry us," said Henry Jenson, who occupies the fifth place from the front. "If I have been asked one question I have been asked a thousand. Some woman prods you with a bundle in your left ribs and wants to know when the parade is coming by. A man to your right taps you with his cane and wants to know 'what's up, 1 and the next minute a newspaper man politely requests you to 'look pleasant' into his camera. I tried to sleep last night on this three legged chair, but questions from curi ous persons kopt me awake until long after midnight." A little yellow-haired girl, Geneva McCan, 8 years old, whose father brought his wife and four children all the way from Missouri for the land opening, staunchly held her gapa's place in the line yesterday for six hours while he slept at home, tired from his long vigil of the night and day before, Geneva's mother cannot take the father's place, like any other women in the line, because she must care for three little children. Tired of City Life A few numbers from Geneva, 10-year old Bryan Miller, whose father is also going to help carve out the history of the Yuma lands and has a wife" and live little children to help him, is look ing wistfully Geneva's way. The two amuse themselves by throwing tiny notes over tho heads of the older people to each other. Several paces down the line Mrs. Clara Millane from Washington, a wid ow, is holding her own. "I am tired of living in the crowded .cities," she suid last night. "I want to get out into the big open, when there Is fresh air, cows and chickens. It will not be my fault If I do not have the prettiest home In Yuma, and I see no reason why I cannot make a success of my farm as well as any man." B. Spangler of Los Angeles says that he has raised a family In the city and has at last awakened to the fact that the country is the place for him. "This paying out all you make for high-priced meats and the necessities of life Is not what It is cracked up to be," he, said, "and I have determined to get out where I can savo and live right at the same time." Alabama Woman No. 23 "The simple life for mine," said Mrs. Emma Simpson, who is sharing the watches with her husband. "Tho high cost of living and better opportunities afforded on a farm have decided my husband and myself to go on a farm." A. H Simpson, her brother-in-law, head of a large family, occupies the place next to her. Mrs. J. T. Rymal of Alabama is not (Continued ou Pa*» Six) 1 VICTIM OF POLICE 'PURITY SQUAD' IS FOUND 'NOT GUILTY' BY JURY Efforts Made to Induce Miss Fisher to Drop Charges Against Officers .Who Ar rested Her Without Warrant and Beat Defender SENSATIONAL testimony was adduced in. Police Judge Fred erickson's court yesterday afternoon during the trial of Mar garet Fisher on a charge of vagrancy, when George King, who was beaten on the head by Patrolmen Browning and Bowe of the "purity squad," testified under oath that he was approached by a man who said he was a friend of the officers of the "purity squad" and the latter attempted to induce him to refrain from bringing charges against the arresting officers and having them haled before the police commission. The jury before which the woman was tried evidently did not think much of the testimony offered by the "purity squad" and after being out less than ten minutes returned a verdict of not guilty. The trial of Miss Fisher, who was ar rested more than a week ago on In formation furnished by W. C. Proctor, a notorious police spy, treated great In terest, as the existence of Captain Dixon's purity squad was believed to be at stake when the case was brought to trial. All officers who have been classed as "purity patrolmen" nocked to the assistance of their brother of ficers In trouble and hindered the prosecution by all trying at once to give advice to the deputy district at torney and tell him how to conduct the case so the woman would be convicted of an offense of which the purity squad has been trying to prove her guilty for the last two years. Tho ilrst witness for the prosecution was Patrolman W. C. Bowe, who testi fied to having visited the building at 822% South Main street in company with Patrolman J. E. Browning to in vestigate a report to tho effect that the Fisher woman was conducting a house of ill fame. The witness then stuted that he and Browning sent Proctor to visit the woman, and gave 4>im two marked dollars with instruc tions to endeavor to Induce her to break the law so that they could rush in and arrest her. The witness said that after tho spy had been In the room a short time they entered the apartment and" told the woman she was under arrest. Proctor, the tool of the , "purity squad," testified that he went into the barber shop conducted by Miss Fisher and had handed her the two marked dollars when Browning and Bowe en tered and arrested her.

He was grilled un mercifully by the woman, who, being a German and not able to speak Eng lish fluently, conducted her case In a remarkable manner and put to rout several witnesses for the prosecution. Browning, considerably excited, his face flushed and his manner uneasy, took the witness chair and told his story of the affair. He said that he furnished Spy Proctor, who is employed by Captain Dixon and is paid out of a special fund, with two marked sil ver dollars and instructed him to visit tho barber shop conducted by the wo man and attempt to persuade her to commit an immoral act. He said that after Proctor had been in the room a short time they entered and placed the woman under arrest after finding the two marked dollars in her possession. "This woman ran out of the room, and I went after her and got her back," said Browning. "This man King rushed into the room after breaking in the door and Interfered. Patrolman Bowe, my partner, was away at the time, having gone to telephone for the patrol- wagon." On cross-examination Browning de nied having broken in the door to gain entrance to the room occupied by Miss King. When asked whether or not ho used force in getting her back into tho room from where she had gone Brown ing declared he persuaded her to re turn to her room by "coaxing" her and grasping her by the arm In a gentle manner. At this moment Miss Fisher produced a silk waist which was torn in many places, and after waving it at the Jury declared it was in good condi tion until It was ruined by Patrolman Browning, who used her roughly and had torn the garment by dragging her (Continued on Face Three) I *^ CENTS SELLS MEAT KEPT SEVEN YEARS IN STORAGI PLANT Startling Charges Made in New York —Indict- ment Ordered BIG TRUST INDICTED Supplies Kept on Ice Until Market Demand Raises Price to Suit [Associated Press] NEW YORK, Feb. 18.—Prosecutor Garvin said tonight that acting on his recommendation the Hud son county grand Jury of New Jersey had instructed him to draw up the form of an indictment against the National Packing .company and Its directors. The grand Jury, he said, had posi tive evidence that food products in some instances have been kept in cold storage for seven years. It was stated tonight that the Na tional Packing company had already been indicted. Prosecutor Garvin'a statement, although technically a de nial, forecasts such action soon. It is understood the indictment, when fin ally presented, probably will be for conspiracy in restraint of trade, as the court instructed the Jury it might find on this charge. Mr. Garvin believes the best proof of a conspiracy to restrain trade lay in the minutes of the National Pack ing company, which had been read to the jury. In the' directorate of the National Packing company appeared the names of many recognized holders of great packing interests. Apparently, said Mr. Garvin, these companies were working independent ly, but he believed he had evidence that directors of the National Pack ing company had taken formal action to hold surplus supplies in storage until the market prices should meet their own figures. The ddrectors are J. Ogden Armour, Edwin Morris, E. F. Swift, E. M. Mor ris, Arthur Meeker, Edward Tilden, T. J. Conners, L. A. Carton, T. E. Wilson, C. H. Swift, L,. H. Heyman, Samuel J,. Mcßoberts, F. A. Fowler, A. W. Ar mour, L. F. Swift and Kenneth K. MacLaren. It is understood that each will be named specifically v.'ith the exception of Mr. MacLaren, who is a resident of New Jersey, and has no known active share in the management of the com- pany. For more than a fortnight the Hud son county grand jury has been investi gating the preservation of foodstuffs and the alleged affiliation of railroad a and western packers with cold storage houses in Jersey City. An indictment found, Mr. Garvin said tonight, would be broad enough to cover every detail of the case in which he thought the chance of a conviction possible. The testimony of chemists and biolo gists has been heard by the grand jury, and evidence has been laid before tha state board of health. Consultations also have been held with Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief chemist of the depart ment of agriculture.
