COURT RELEASES MAN WHO IS CHARGED WITH CRUELTY Because It was shown that Hender- Hnn Packwood, accused of keeping a horse that was ordered killed by the R. P. C A., was not In physical posses- Finn of the animal when the order was made, lie was discharged by Police Judge Hose yesterday when he was ""* placed on trial for cruelty to animals. It appears that Packwood had the horse in the care of a liveryman. The 6. P. ('. A. officers found that the ani mal was in a poor condition and sent notice to Packwood to kill It. Pack wood, It is said, disputed with th« liveryman concerning the bill and re fused to pay the amount asked, allow ing the animal to remain In the pos session of the proprietor of the stable. When the S. P. C. A. officers learned that the animal had not been killed they arrested him on a charge of cruelty to animals for not obeying their orders. When these facts wore made known In police court Judge nose promptly dismissed the case against Packwood. As the matter now stands, the livery man must care for the horse and con tinue to feed It until Packwood sees fit to pay the bill, and if he kills the ani mal he Is liable to be sued for killing: " a horse belonging to another man. •«• . . • INVENTORS GET PATENTS The pioneer patent agency, Hazard & Strause of Los Angeles, reports the following list of patents granted to Southern California Inventors for the week ended March 8: Van Renselear Cheney, Los Angeles, door hanger; "William D.

POLICE BAFFLED IN SHOOTING MYSTERY Death of Marquez, Found Dying from Bullet Wounds, Deprives Detectives of Only Clew owing to the fact that Francisco Murquez, who was found In a dying condition MM a shanty at Cuba Sta tion, died at the county hospital early yesterday morning as the result of a gunshot wound of the stomach, the de tectlVM probably never will learn the identity of the man who flred the shot. Tho case of Marques', is shrouded in mystery, and (i. W. Chamberlain, who admitted tuning shot Marquez and Identified the latter as one. of two chicken thieves, made a mistake In the identity of the man With whom he struggled. The detectlvai i« arned that the wound Inflicted on Marquee was caused by a much smaller bullet than that Bred from Chamberlains pistol. Marques shortly before he died de- Clan <1 that he was Shot by one of sev eral men with whom he was drinking, and that he never moved from the spot where he had fallen. When the sur geons probed the wound they removed a .32 caliber bullet. Chamberlain, who was arrested be fore Marquee waa placed on the oper ating table, looked at the wounded man and positively identified him as the man at whom he had shot while the latter was attempting to make his escape with two bags of chickens. Chamberlain produced a .41 caliber derringer and oaid it was the weapon with which ho had flred the bullet at the chicken thief. Since the case came to the notice of the police. Detective* MoCaoa and Beaumont have been working to un ravel the mystery and have fulled to learn the Identity of the man at whom chamberlain shot. Defective McCann found two empty .32 caliber shells near where Marquez was found, but has not been ablo to find out the names of the men who were with Marquez when he was shot. Coroner Hartwell will hold an In quest over the body of Marquez today at a local undertaking establishment. 'ENGLISH PASTOR' TO BE GIVEN TRIAL BY JURY William Mortis, who claims to be a minister of the Church of England and who was arrested by the police Mon day on a charge of stealing money from Fred Peatfleld, a horse dealer, pleaded not guilty in Police Judge Froderickson'M court yesterday to a charge of petty larceny and demanded a Jury trial. Hia case waa set for trial for March 31, and in default of $100 ball ho was sent back to jail. Despite the fact that Morris paid $3 to Peatfleld Monday afternoon and in the presence of Detective Hoslck asked that the sum be credited to his account on tho amount he had taken, the sup posod minister intends fighting the cuse. When searched Morris had in his pos session a list with the names of more than a hundred persons, some of them well known merchants of this city, who had subscribed amounts from $1 to $3 for his "free will" offering. The de tectives are investigating this matter. They say that instead of giving the money to the poor Morris used It to buy liquor and to pay for pool games.

PROPOSED RAISE OF LIQUOR TAX SPLITS COUNCIL TWO MEMBERS DECLINE TO VOICE OPINION COMMITTEE MEETING TONIGHT MAY DEC.OE QUESTION Vote on Increase at Present Stands Three and Three, with Possi- bility of Deadlock from Remaining Ballots A deadlock on the question of in creasing the liquor licenses appear! Imminent in tho city council if tiie public welfare committee reports In favor of the measure! not before It. Three members of the' council are un alterably 'Opposed to increasing the license fee*. They are I,usk, Gregory, and Works. Three members are In favor of nn Increase. Theye are Wash burn, Andrews and Williams. Two members, Hetkouski and O'Urien, re fused to make public statements yes terdajr of their position on the matter, hut it Is well known Hetkouski is a high license man. The question of Whether high license will be adopted or the council spilt squarely In two appears to be in the hands of O'Hrirn, and he said yesterday ne would vote the way he believed was proper when the time comes. Another public meeting of the public welfare committee will be held tonight and ii 1h expected the proposed liquor ordinance will be taken up and dis cussed section by section. Capt. D. II Smith of the National Model Ll cense league is in the city and will appear before the committee as a liquor license expert on behalf of the liquor Interests. Members of the council yesterday in dulged in a pfmral discussion of the new liquor ordinance. It was brought vii by a partial report of the Welfare committee presented by W. J. Wash burn, chairman of the committee. The report was as follows: Chairman Washburn's Report Tour public welfare committee, to whom was referred the matter of liquor legislation, beg leave to make 'a partial report as follows: Much apprehension has been ex pressed that your committee In tended to report an ordinance con taining drastic and unreasonable provisions that will interfere with the proper conduct of the business of those engaged In the sale of liquor, and in view of the wide spread interest in this matter, and the fart that a proper considera tion of the ordinance will require pome time. it Is deemed by tills committee wise that the general policy governing its actions may be mule known nt this time. "Disreputable places" may be defined to be those which maintain booths or private rooms that are used for gambling or Immoral pur poses; those which are the redez vous for Immoral women; „ those which afford conveniences for de bauching young people, of both sexes; those which are conducted under the names of clubs but which are not subject to police regula tion. "Disreputable methods" may be defined to Include the purchase and sale or lease by private parties of permits for the sale of liquor granted by the city. It Is the Intention of this com mittee to finally report an ordi nance that will, as far as possible, . compel those conducting disrepu table places to change their prac tices or cease doing business, and to stop disreputable methods, r 41 The ordinance which was pre pared by Guy Eddie, Esq., will , serve os a basis for the delibera tions of your committee. . We have had two or three con ferences with the police commis- . sion and two public hearings at which nil persons interested have been Invited to be present and point out those features which were objectionable, and your committee has received much Information that will bo of value when It meets to consider the provisions of the or dinance. As was publicly announced at each of the hearings, no drastic or unreasonable provisions will be In serted. It will be impossible to frame an ordinance, general In its •cope, tliat will not cause incon venience to some, but this will be made as light as possible. "We do not intend to place the licenses at a figure that will be unjust either to the liquor sellers or to the city. A question upon which a wide di vergence of opinion exists can not be covered by an ordinance in a manner that will meet the views of all. We Intend to be fair, and we feel that we have the right to expect the support of those people who feel that it is a substantial improvement upon existing condi tions, even though' it does not al together meet their views. In discussing this matter Mr. Wash burn said: . • ' "I wish to supplement this report by a few remarks relating to the con templated raise in the amount of li cense to be charged to the liquor deal er. I have received many communica tions from people who protested against the raising of licenses upon the theory that an increased revenue accruing to the city from this source will defer the day when prohibition shall be adopted by the people of this city, for the reason that the people will be reluctant to relinquish this revenue. This theory has also been voiced at the public hearings which we have had, by members of the Min isterial union. "I do not agree with them. Opinion is divided among the members of the Ministerial union'as to the effect It will have. • One of the most influential clergymen of this city, not many days ago, stated to me that he had been for many years a close observer of the causes that lead up .to prohibition, particularly as to the effect ■of an increase or decrease of licenses. He stated that ■ the cause of prohibition, had been furthered' by an increase of license rather than by a decrease. Be that as it may, the people of this city not many years ago decided by a vote ' that they did not want prohibition. ■-- ■- 1 ffiiiri 111 ifr i 'if i^r r:iTr I-Y-itfUi Jwarinntii^i n*4iinf Unquestionably the sentiment of this city today Is that they want reßula tlon and control of this traffic that will make for a betterment of condi tions. I believe, and i know that every other member of this council believes, in temperance, and we. all have a strong feeling to minimize, as far as possible, the evils surrounding the liquor traffic. As a matter of principle, If It is wrong to Increase the license, charged the saloons, It is equally wrong to charge their present rate, or any other rate. It If equally clear to my mind, and I believe it Is to every citizen, that if we have free sale of liquor in Los Angeles condi tions will be Immeasurably worse. if it. Is wrong, as a matter of principle, to recognize that liquor selling exists in this community. It Is wrong to pass any law regulating the traffic. In other words, we would have a wide open town. • "If the licensing of the liquor traf fle is justifiable at all, it is proper that the tax should be so adjusted as to be fair to the dealers anil to the city. If, upon this theory, an Increase in the license Is proper, I feel that this council, if It should give up revenue* that properly belong to the city for the sake of influencing a future vote upon prohibition or any other question, that wo would fall in our duty as public officials." Lusk Expresses Views President Works asked Judge Lusk, a member of the welfare committee, to express his views on the proposed ordinance . "I am opposed to raising the licenses at all," said Judge *Lusk. "But my objections are not the same as those I have heard presented. I. believe an increase would do the little man an injustice. It seems to be the policy of the city that 200 saloons shall exist here, and If they are wanted by the city they should have a Square deal. I believe if the license fee was in creased to $1800 a year many of the saloon men would have to go out of business. . "I am also opposed to the proposed tax of $100 a month on social club*. The fee should be nominal, $20 or $25 a month, enough to give police juris diction. There are other things in the ordinance to which I object, but I expect to make my objections known In committee." Councilman Gregory declared the or dinance as It now stands is entirely too drastic, and that he approved all Judge Lusk had said with regard to the license fees. Councilman Andrews did not believe the license fee in the new ordinance too high. He called attention to the fact that under the old practice of trafficking In licenses saloons paid the breweries $10,000 for their licenses, or when they did not buy them outright paid $50 or more a «n.onth for the use of the license. He said the saloons should be taxed enough to pay for the trouble they make. Councilman Williams declared the license fee of $150 a month would suit him and he was ready to vote for that amount. ■ ... Betkouskl and O'Brien said nothing, but President Works expressed his views forcibly. "I am opposed to Increasing the li cense fees for three reasons," he said. "In the first place, I do not believe the city should accept any money at all that Is made from the liquor business. I believe the business Is Illegal In it self, and that no permit the city can grant will legalize It. I am not dis posed to vote for any legislation that will more strongly Intrench the sa loons in thi« city. I believe If-Tf had not been for the fact that the city was receiving $200,000 a year revenue from the saloons they would have been voted out of existence at the election a few years ago when the people de cided they should stay. Again, I be lieve the amount proposed is exces sive. As long as the city recognizes the saloons as legal they are entitled to the same protection as the banks or any other business. It should be our purpose to make them Just as de cent as possible. If the habit of treat- Ing and serving free lunches could be abolished half the drunkenness of the city would be wiped out." FAVORS FLAGMEN AT TEN CAR CROSSINGS Board of Public Utilities Will Prob ably Recommend Taking Steps for Better Public Safety Flagmen at ten crossings on the Pa cific Electric between the Sixth street depot and Slauson avenue will probably be recommended by the board of public utilities to the city council. No automatic device that has yet been Invented will guard the public safety sufficiently, is the opinion of the utilities commission. The commission, accompanied by Assistant City Attor ney John W. Shenk and General Man ager McMillan of the Pacific Electric, went down Long Beach avenue In auto mobiles yesterday to observe traffic conditions. President Lissner of the board counted the cars, and at the Vernon avenue crossing found that twenty-three cars passed Inside of ten minutes. At this rapid rate, safety gates would not do, for they would be down all the time, and an electric alarm bell would not serve the purpose, as it would be ringing all the time. Flagmen are the only remedies the commission can suggest that will ade quately nil the Ml. - The attention of the commission was called to the rapid rate at which the Long Beach cars traverse Long Beach avenue by complaints of citizens who live along the line and fear for their lives. The commission does not believe the cars should be forced to slacken speed but that the public should be protected from the speeding cars. « » » TABLJ2 OF 'I'Kill'lil! vn 1:1.«. Station*. Max. Mm.

Crazed Indian Chief Galloway yesterday declai personally would reprimand Liuut. Herman Krlege and tin: three patrol men for failure to perform their duty an police officers and arrest Charles Edmi ndson, accused of abusing his family while he was under the influ em c of liquor. Chief Qalloway, with considerable] beat, stated the officera failed to do their duty;* that their excuse of hav log no warrant and fearing > ritii ism by their superiori »:is a mere fabri cation and that the real reason for their not taking the man Into custody whs because the latter was armed with a revolver and showed every In dication "i using it if lie was molested. Captain Dixon said tin- men had acted right in not arresting Edtnond- SOB without a warrant. He declared the men went to get the half-breed, and when the latter closed the screen door to the front entrance of his home and defied the officers to take him he had act«d within his rights and the policemen had no authority to enter the place. Captain Dixon further stated the three officers reported the matter to lieutenant Kritge and the latter, after learning that Edmondson defied arrest and that two small Chil dren In the house were afflicted with the measles, decided that the officers had best not run the risk of catching the dread malady by entering the place, and upheld them for not making the arrest without a warrant. When their actions were approved of by Lieutenant Kriege the three men left Kdmondson victor in the matter and returned to the police station and felt quite satisfied that they had per formed their duty as policemen when Patrolman Windsor ma do out a report and submitted it to his superior officer. The police then allowed the affair to drop and no further activity was taken in the matter until it was brought to the attention of Chief Gal loway, who in turn ordered Lieutenant Williams to detail men to take into custody thn defiant offender. The arrest was made without any trouble, and Edmondson, in the custody of Ora May, secretary to the chief, and De tective Bert Cowan, was locked up in the city jail. Used Poor Judgment "These men used very pf'or Judg ment as police officers," said Chief Galloway vest. rday. "The woman stated she would swear to a complaint against Kdmondson. The officers knew ho had attacked her and knocked her down with a vest, in the pocket of which was a bag of silver coins. They also Knew this man had chased his sister-in-law from the room. They had no cause for worry regard ing censure from their superior offi cers. It was a different case from that of immoral women who are arrested without warrants. In this case the man defied the police department, was flourishing a revolver and prob ably would have used it on some per son' had he the opportunity. Any per son with common sense would have realized that it was a case of imme diate action and placed this man in jail where he could not do any harm. Instead of that they allowed him to bluff them away and then hid behind thp excuse that they had no warrant and were fearful of the consequences of arresting him. "I have Investigated this matter personally find I disapprove of their actions I will have them in my of fice and they will be given a severe reprimand. If such affairs are again brought I" my notice more severe pun ishment will be meted to those failing to do their duty." Captain Dixon did not care to dis cuss the matter other than say that the men acted right in not arresting Edmondson. He. stated the man mere ly was guilty of a misdemeanor and Uiev ha.l no right to enter his home and arrest him without a warrant.

"But it sabed me from bein' 'cused ob carryin' er pistol," replied the ne gro, who had an empty horse pistol and a box of cartridges in his posses sion.
