SUES BANK FOR $110,000
BECAUSE OF PROSECUTION
Trial of the suit of Dr. J. B. Sloane
against the American National bank
for damages of $110,000 for alleged ma
licious prosecution was begun before
Judge Moss of the superior court yes
terday. The suit grows out of Sloane's
arrest in 1908 on a charge of embezzling
$700 belonging to the bank, it being
claimed at that time he took advantage
of an error in bis account and overdrew
his deposits to the extent of that
amount. .
After a preliminary examination
Sloane was discharged by tho late
Justice E. E. Selph, who held that
Sloane could not be held responsible
for the bank's errors. Sloane acknowl
edged that he received the money, but
contended that it was drawn from tho
bank in the regular course of a num
ber of large financial transactions.
Publicity given to the matter, he testi
fied yesterday, damaged his credit and
business, and he has frequently been
denied courtesies in business dealings
that would otherwise have been shown
t,o him. The trial will be resumed
Tuesday.

ASK EXTENSION
FOR CREGIER CO.
WORK ON FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
DELAYED
Inventor Presents Claim to Council
for $1800, but Offers to Cam.
promise for Half That
Amount
Fifteen weeks' extension of the con
tract between the city and the Cregier
Signal Alarm company for the inaugu
ration of 100 fire alarm boxes in the
University district is the recommenda
tion the supply committee intended to
make to the council yesterday morn
ing. But somehow the report of the
committee was mislaid, either by acci
dent or design on the part of some
one not friendly to the Cregior com
pany, and was not presented to the
council yesterday.
Although It 13 urgently necessary
that action be taken at once to install
this system, in the opinion of the fire
commmission, It will be Tuesday be
fore the city -council can take action
on the matter.
Unnecessary delay on the part of the
city, chiefly due to procrastination by
the former council, has caused the
fifteen weeks for the installation of
the system originally provided In the
contract to lapse, and except that the
320 poles needed to carry tho wiroK
have been purchased, little has been
done towards performing that part of
the work the city Is bound to do. N.
Banks Cregier, Inventor of the system,
has been in Los Angeles the entire
time, and, because the city failed to
keep Its part of the contract, he pre
sented a claim of $1800 for dfimages.
Mr. Cregier offered to cut the claim in
two, but demands that he be paid $900,
and if this is not fortheiming he prob
ably will bring suit against tho city.
The supply committee has referred this
claim to the city attorney to determlno
if it is a valid one.
When n communication from the (Ire
commission was read to the council
yesterday asking that every assistance
be given Cregter for a speedy installa
tion of his system, Martin Betkouski
stated that he wished to place the
blame where it belonged, and said the
chief of tho fire department and the
superintendent of the signal system
were chiefly responsible for the delay.
ABANDON PLAN TO ERECT
ENGINE HOUSE THIS YEAR
Lack of Funds Will Delay Work on
Figueroa St. Structure Until
Nsw Budget
In spite of the demand of tho in
surance underwriters that some action
be taken soon for the construction of
the engine house on Figueroa street,
north of Seventh, it does not appear
likely that the engine house will be
begun during the present fiscal year.
A statement to this effect was raado
to tho council yesterday by Council
man Betkouski, chairman of the build
ing committee.
According to the plans and specifica
tions that have been prepared for this
engine house, it will cost about $90,000,
but only $20,000 whs niiropriated In tho
budget for this fiscal year by the
former council for this purpose. It wag
the idea of tho former council that this
sum would be sufficient to start the
building and that next year additional
money could be appropriated. But tho
present council does not like this plan,
and neither does the flre commission.
There is not enough money with which
to do the work, so it Is not likely to
bo done until the fund is replenished.
ASK FIVE-CENT FARE
Tho petition of residents of Straw
berry Park for a five-cent car fare on
the Los Angeles & Urdondo railway
was referred to the public, utilities
commission by tho city council yester
day. This railway charges an extra
five-cent fare after passing Florence
avenue, although the line extends fif
teen blocks farther within the city
limits. Tho fact that the Los Angeles
& Redondo has no franchise north of
Slauson avenue, although It runs its
cars to the city depot at Second and
Spring streets, may be used as a lever
to sucure the concession of five-cent
fares to Strawberry Park.
CITY WILL PAY BILL
The demand of J. J. Harris for $591
was approved by the city council yes
terday, notwithstanding the objections
of the city auditor. The debt was in
curred when Mr. Harris transported
the election booths at the last general
election and furnished tables and
chairs. The auditor refused to approve
the demand because the total amount
was more than $500, and under the pro
vision of the charter regular bids
should have been secured through ad
vertisement. In order to avoid this
provision of the charter the demand
had been cut into two bils, one for
$3DI and the other for $200.
ASKS CONDEMNATION
The Jefferson Street Park tract syn
dicate has asked the city council tn
begin proceedings to condemn Third
avenue to a width of sixty feet across
the right of way of the Southern Pa
cific. This syndicate owns most of the
property that would bo affected by
such proceedings. Third avenue has
been dedicated as a public street on
both sides of the railroad right of
way, but there is no public thorough
fare across the tracks.
NO DISCUSSION OF LICENSES
Owing to the absence of President
Work. 1? and Councilman Washburn
yesterday morning, the council did not
continue its work of considering the
license ordinance. The license ordi
nance which C. M. Taggart, t:ix and
license collector, has presented will
make little difference in the total rev
enue of the city, but some inequalities
will be adjusted.
INSPECT PLAYGROUNDS
Guided by the members of the play
ground commislon, tho park commis
sion yesterday made a tour of inspec
tion of tfye city playgrounds. While
they are separate departments and
controlled by separate commissions,
the work of the park and playground
departments is closely allied, and the
park commissioners desired to becomo
familiar with the city playgrounds.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 26, 1010.
CITY WORKERS TO
GET PAY WEEKLY
COUNCIL STRIKES BLOW AT
LOAN SHARKS
WILL DISMISS EMPLOYES WHO
BORROW ON WAGES
Hardship of Waiting Entire Month
for Money Is Done Away
with Under New
System
All city laborers who work for wages
by the clay will hereafter receive their
salaries every week instead of monthly,
as has been the case. Tills is the first
timo this method has been tried, al
though once before bi-weekly payrolls
were put into practice for a few weeks
and then discontinued.
This change in tho manner of paying
the la borers was instituted by Council
man Miles S. Gregory, who introduced
a resolution in the city council yester
day which was unanimously adopted.
The primary object of the weekly
pay roll is to give the wage earner his
money more quickly, bo that he will
not be dependent on loan sharks to
carry him from one monnth's pay day
to another, as Is now the case in
many instances. The resolution shows
its purposes by requiring that every
laborer employed by the city who has
given any one power of attorney to
collect his wages must revoke such
power within ten days or be subject
to dismissal. This is the same action
taken by the fire commission with re
gard to the members of tho fire depart
ment. The resolution adopted by the
council follows:
Resolution of Council
Be it resolved, that the head of
each department of the city of Los
Angeles in which laborers are em
ployed be and is hereby instructed
to present for approval by the coun
cil a weekly pay roll for the pay
ment of all such laborers; such pay
rolls to be audited and approved In
the same manner as other pay rolls
are audited and approved, except
that the same shall be weekly in
stead of monthly.
Be It further resolved, that every
laborer employed by the city or by
any department thereof who has
heretofore given any order, author
ization, power of attorney or other
authority to any other person to
collect his salary or wages or to
receive his warrant from the city
auditor or in any other manner to
represent him in connection there
with shall, within ten days from the
adoption of this resolution, file with
tho city auditor a written revocation
of such authority.
And be it further resolved, that
no such laborer shall at any timo
permit any other person to draw
his salary, nor shall at uny timo ap
point any other person as his agent
or attorney to collect his salary,
nor delegate to any other person at
any time the duty of obtaining his
salary warrant from the auditor,
or the duty of collecting the same
from the city treasurer without first
having obtained permission so to
do from the head of the department
in which the said laborer Is em-
Be it further resolved, that any
violation of the conditions specified
in this resolution by any laborer
shall be deemed good cause for sus
pension from duty or dismissal from
the service of the city.
NEIGHBORS IN WATTS
TAKE FIGHT TO COURT
All Sorts of Misdemeanor Offenses Are
Laid at Doors of Members of
Four Belligerent
Families
"What do you want to lie like that
for," shouted an Interested spectator in
Justice Summerfield's court yesterday
morning at the preliminary hearing of
Gua Peterson, charged with disturbing
the peace at Watts Park, when Mrs.
Emma Burger, the complaining wit
ness, was testifying as to offensive
language which she asserted had been
used by Peterson toward her.
"1 can't beat you lying." returned
Mrs. Burger, as she arose from tho wit
ness chair, h* face a crimson red.
The hearing yesterday was the out
come of a neighborhood quarrel be
tween four families residing at Watts
Park. The trouble started sometime
ago, when Mrs. Louisa, Peterson, sister
of Poterson, Bold some land to Mrs.
Burger. Water on Mrs. Burger's land
was furnished by means of a windmill
situated on Johnson's place, and car
ried through pipes to the land.
After the sale of the land the water
was shut off from Mrs. üßrger and she
brought a suit in the superior court to
have the matter settled. Tho court
decided that she had no right to the
water. Soon after the dismissal of the
suit a chicken belonging to Peterson
strayed into tho yard of Mrs. Burger
and she was arrested i <r chicken steal
ing. She ""/as tried and acquitted.
Following her arrest, Mrs. Burger
had Peterson arrested for threats to
kill, charging that he had threatened
to take her life several times. At this
stage of the proceedings Mrs. A. Sea
man of tho Watts Park grocery, gave
bond for the release of Poterson.
Upon returning- home in the after
noon after depositing the bail, she dis
covered that her children had been
beaten by Mrs. E. F. Springer, another
neighbor. The consequence was that
Mrs. Springer was arrested on the
charge of battery. She was tried on
the chargo and fined $3.
The preliminary hearing of Gus Pet
erson, on the charffe of threats to kill,
came up yesterday morning and was
dismissed, and the charge of disturb
ing the peace was then made against
him After hearing the evidence of
both sides Justice Summerfleld dis
missed the case.
MURDER CHARGE FILED
AGAINST EDW. S. KEYES
Following 1 tho action of the coroner's
jui-y which returned a verdict of acci
dental death at the lnquMt which was
held over the body of Daniel Todd,
who was killed Tuesday night at Ver
non, a complaint was l.ssued yesterday
by Deputy District Attorney Ford,
charging Edward S. Keyes with the
murder of Todd.
Keyes was arraigned before Justice
Summerfield yesterday afternoon and
his preliminary hearing set for 10
o'clock Wednesday in the same court.
His bail was llxcd at $10,000, which he
was unable to give, although it was
thought that his mother, Mrs. Dollio
de Turk, would furnish it.

News of the Courts
25 YEARS BOY'S
PRISON SENTENCE
MUST SERVE TERM FOR TRY
ING TO KILL MOTHER
Judge Willis Says Society Must Be
Protected from John Haun.
schek, 19-Year.Old
Youth
■With the expression of a person who
is compelled to listen to what is being
said, but without any particular in
terest in the spoken words or their
meaning, 19-year-old John Haunschek
stood in the criminal court yesterday
and heard Judge Willis sentence him
to a term in San Quentin penitentiary
until his years have almost touched
tho half-century mark.
Tho term fixed by Judge Willis was
twenty-live years, the court taking
into consideration not only the last
crime charged against tho youthful
prisoner, but also his record of mis
deeds during the past nine years.
Haunschek's latest crime was the
attempt to kill his mother, Mrs. Ida
Haunschek, owner of a small dairy
near Colegrove. When he was 10
years old he was arrested for grand
larceny, and he admitted he had
stolen several bicycles. He was sent
to the Whittier industrial school for
that offense, and shortly after his
parole was arrested a second time, a
similar charge being made against
him. Again he was taken to the state
school, and again paroled.
"I was paroled four times and ran
away once," he said yesterday. "It
did no good to send me there."
The last time Haunschek was re
leased from the Industrial school was
in July, shortly after the death of his
father. Since then he resided with his
mother, refusing to assist her In any
way, she said after his arrest, and
objecting strenuously to the presence
of a man hired by her.
The culmination of this opposition
occurred February 14, when young
Haunschek placed four ounces of for
maldehyde in his mother's coffee pot.
"Possibly you are not to blame; you
can't help it, and that is what makes
your case a sad one," said Judge
Willis. "The only thins society can
do for you is to place you where you
cannot take life."
Haunschek's face, stoild and almost
expressionless, did not change as he
heard the sentence, and he turned on
his heel to follow the bailiff to the
"bridge of sighs" leading to the coun
ty jail.
BELIEVED RIVER BED
FILLED WITH GOLD
R. R. Christie, as Defendant in Suit,
Tells Why He Invested In ■
Price's Mining
Scheme
R. R. Christie, formerly a close friend
of Dr. W. R. Price, the Liong Beach
psychologist and mining stock seller,
told Judge Hervey yesterday he had
been victimized through Price's mis
representations regarding the value of
the property of the National Gold
Dredging company and was induced to
give a note of $5000 for the purchase of
stock in January, 190 S. Two months
later he paid $3000 on the note, and in
the following July learned for the Hist
time he had been investing in some
thing from which no returns could be
expected.
Christie was defendant in Judge Her
vey's court in an action brought by P.
B. Sepulveda, Price's assignee, for the
recovery of the $2000 balance claimed
to be due on the note.
"I purchased that stock on Price's
representations that the eleven miles
of American river bed he said was
owned by the dredging company was
filled with gold," said Christie. "When
I learned the falsity of this and other
statements I told Price I was done with
the proposition and would never pay
another cent on the note, and I have
not."
The case Is still on trial. A case In
which Price is charged with obtaining
money by false representation is pend
ing in the criminal court, and a sfm
llar case Is on file In a Justice court.
PLAINTIFF FOR $10,000
GETS FALSE NOTIONS
Thinks His Attorney Was Looking
After All Court Expenses, but
Learns Differently
John Trossler, a German, demanded
a Jury trial In Judge Hervey's court
yesterday when his suit against the
L,os Angeles & Redondo Railway com
pany for $10,000 was called. His un
derstanding with his attorney, he said
after taking the witness chair, was
that a jury would be in the box when
he began his testimony. His attorney,
Job Harriman, denied any knowledge
of such an arrangement.
Judge Hervey told Trossler if ho
v.ould pay the costs to the present time
he would transfer the case to a de
partment where a jury was sitting.
"I paid my attorney the costs," said
Trosslor, and this was met with an
other denial from Attorney Harriman,
who announced he would have nothing
more to do with the case.
Trossler refused to produce the
money necessary before a jury Is se>
lected, refused to let the case proceed
without a jury, and Judge Hervey or
dered the action dismissed.
Trossler sued on account of personal
Injuries alleged to have been sustained
January 27, 1908, by being thrown from
a car on Seventh street.
CRIMINAL LIBEL CHARGE
DISMISSED BY JUDGE
Tho charge of criminal libel pre
ferred by T. E. Gibbon against State
Senator W. H. Savage, which was on
trial yesterday and Thursday before
Police Judge ltosu, was dismissed In
the afternoon on a technicality.
The magistrate held that tho utter
ance complained of was not libel, but
that if it was false It might have been
slanderous. He found that Savage
stood up on the door of the senate at
Sacramento and made the statement
orully.

COURT ADMITS ERROR;
GRANTS NEW TRIAL
JUDGE ROSE ASSUMES BLAME
IN SWINDLE CASE
Verdict Finding Three Men Guilty Is
Left with Bailiff In Absence
of the Magis
trate
Fearing he had erred in permitting a
.jury to return a sealed verdict into
the hands of the court baHUt i" "is
absence from the bench, Police Judge
Hose elected to assume the burden of
the error, and yesterday he granted a
new trial to Dolph M. Greene, Harry
G. Connor and R. E. Ivett, charged
with conspiracy in the case of J. H.
Umberger. The trio was found guilty
of conspiring to swindle Umberger in
selling him a half interest in a "garage
in Lebanon street which contained two
derelict automobiles.
Judga Rose passed on the question
of the verdict being given into Bailiff
Hubbard's hands in the absence of the
magistrate at that time and ruled that
it was not error. Yesterdty he con
sulted authorities which caused him to
reverse himself and grant the defen
dants a new trial.
Greene and his associates appeared
before the magistrate yesterday for
sentence, and they were somewhat
amazed to be informed that a new trial
had been granted. Deputy District At
torney Veitch, who convicted the al
leged business chance swindlers, was
visibly disappointed at the turn of
events, but he began preparations at
once for the retrial.
"I learned that I had committed
what might be constructed nn error
by the higher courts," said Judge Rose
atterward. "I passed on the question
of the bailiff receiving the jury's sealed
verdict in my absence several days
ago. At that time I thought it legal,
but today I found authorities which
convinced me 1 had erred and that It
would furnish ground for an appeal.
It is not pleasant to be reversed, so I
assumed the burden at this time. It
will not be a hardship on the prosecu
tion, as the evidence is fresh and^ the
witnesses are at hand."
The retrial of the Umberger case was
set for March 21.

NEPHEW OF FORMER
STATESMAN GUILTY
W. F .PLATT CHANGES PWEK ON
BURGLARY CHARGE j .
Pomona Storekeeper Tells Court Drug
Habit Caused Him to Com.
mlt Crime —Wants
a Change
W. F. Platt, nephew of Thomas C.
Platt, Nfew York's former senator,
stole a march on his attorney yester
day, slipped into the criminal court,
pleaded guilty to a charge of burglary
and slipped back to the county jail to
await sentence, which Judge Willis
told him would be given at 9:30 o'clock
Tuesday.
Platt has been in the county jail
almost a month, and says he is tiring
of the experience and wants a change
of scenery. He is accused of burglary,
having, it is alleged, stolen cutlery
and table linen from the home of S,
D. G. Anderson in Pomona January 20.
and placed the goods on the shelves of
his little store in Pomona.
Following- his arrest Platt denied he
had stolen the articles, asserting he
purchased them, knowing them to be
the proceeds of a burglary. He made
the same statement to his attorney,
John Boardsley, in Judge Willis' court
several days ago and the case was set
for trial.
Yesterday he sent word to the dis
trict attorney's office he wanted to
plead guilty to the tairglary chargre.
"Did you steal the goods?" asked
Judge Willis.
"I'm guilty," was Platt's response.
"If you received the stolen goods and
did not commit the theft, you are not
guilty of burglary," instructed the
court.
"I'm guilty," Platt insisted.
Platt attributed all his troubles to
the use of morphine. He was a physi
cal wreck when first taken to the
county Jail, but says he has overcome
his desire for the drug.
"I have not had a day's luck since
I began its use and that is more than
eij?ht years ago," he told Judge Willis.
"The experience I have just gone
through has cured me and I feel con
fident I will not resume the habit."
