ALEXANDER ASKS
BIG BOND VOTE
Mayor Declares That Harbor and
Power Investments Will Bring
Revenue to the City
An appeal to the vu'ers to bo to the poll»
next Tuesday ami vote for the harbor and
power bonds wan made by Mayor Alexander
In fin open letter yesterday. The mayor In Ills
statement says:
. As the executive head of the city of I-os
Angeles I <i>"-m It my duty to call your
-particular attention to the election to be
held In [hi city on Tuesday, April 19, 1910,
for Hi. purpose of authorizing the issuing
Of 13.KW.000 for harbor Improvement ami
t3.500.U00 i"i the parpen of building power
plant* along the Oweiu rlvor aqueduct.
I:..th of th«sa propositions are money
earner* and In no i— represent the In
curring of it burdensome Indebtedness; for
eventually they will pny not only the ex
pensn <if operating them, together with
Interest on ,the bonds, but will provide a
(Inking fund which will pay the principal
without additional taxation, and will pro
duce a revenue which should be sufficient
to wipe out th* entire city Indebtedness.
No city m ever before presented with
■uch mi opportunity, one that will Insure
Its future growth and prosperity, and In
• the future contribute to the expenses of
maintenance and remove the excessive bur
- din of taxation.
The aqueduct will develop a capacity of
120,000 electrical hore« power. A mean
capacity of 60,000-horse power can be de
veloped dally. Tills means nn, enormous
permanent asset, and It Is estimated that
tho profits from the power plants will more
than pay for the entire aqueduct project.
At the present time the city Is paying
about $240,000 annually for electricity for
municipal purposes. This can be eliminated
by th" construction of a power plant, and
xthe location of manufactories here will be
greatly encouraged by the ,tact that the
city will have electric power to sell at
cheap >irtßs. .
II \I! IK lie MKA.VS MILLIONS
The Improvement of the harbor means
■ that wo will have the advantage of cheap
transportation for our*" manufactured pro
ducts; that we can offer the public dockage,
wharfage and warehouse facilities at the
very lowest price, and the recovery of the
tidcloniM In th« harbor for the use and
benefit of the people means millions In
value and affords the most advantageous
locations' for factories.
Los Angeles entered into a contract with
Wilmington and San Pedro and agreed that,
If they would consolidate and give the
control of the harbor and Its earnings to
the consolidated city, the harbor would be
lmornv»d by the great city no that the con
solidated city would reap all of the ad
vantages of the opening of the Panama
canal.
History shows that the best Investment
. Of cities Is the improvement of their har
bors. Immediate growth and prosperity at
tend such development, and thereby Is af
forded access to the ocean, which Is, iln "
truth and in fact, the people's highway.
This. Insures , protection against railroad
- combinations.
The development of the power plants and
the Improvement of the harbor will, In my
opinion, guarantee that Los Angeles will
be a city of a million people within a very
few years, and the territory contributory
' to our harbor will be developed propor
tionally. >..
I earnestly urge you to vote for the bonds _
. before going .to your places of business,
and to see that your friends and neigh
. bors do likewise. Do not rely on the other
fellow to do It. I , :

DIXON HINTS REPORTER
ASSAULTED PRISONER
Police Captain Names Paul
Braud in Connection with
Attack on Negro
In a report which he has submitted
to tho police commission, Capt. C. K.
IMxon has Implicated Paul J. Braud, a
police reporter on the Times, in nn
assault believed to have been commit
ted on cii.nii's Willlami, a negro
prisoner, mi tho night of December is.
The matter of the assault is now un
der Investigation by the grand jury,
mid th.) DOMOS commission has delayed
ai-tlun on the matter four weeks to
give tin- grand jury time to report.
Williams shot Patrolman E. K.
Saunders, December 15, and nfter he
Wit arrested ami taken to the police
station, it is claimed the prisoner was
brutally mnnhandlpd. ('apt. TMxon be
lieves the assault occurred in tho po
lice station, und while hi' does not
nnme any officers who may have
taken part in it, hi> states that riraud
■howed evidence of having been im
plicated 1n the affair. Chief Galloway
was Instructed by the police commis
sion to do all he could to assist the
grand Jury in its Investigation.
Williams was beaten .so terribly .that
he will die, according lo his attorney.
When arraigned recently on a charge
nl' shooting the policeman, it was de
veloped that Willlama has contracted
tuberculosis ns a result of his in
juries.
In his report, Capt. Plxon says of
tin I'harles Williams case:
"From the meager information I
have been able to glean, I am of the
opinion that Williams was assaulted
after he was taken to the jail, and
one of tho reports hereto attached
shows indications and statements to
the effect that one Oraud, reporter for
the Times, assisted in the assault. •
"It is my opinion that it would bo
a good case for the grand jury to in
vestigate, because it is evident to my
mind that there has been a concerted
effort to cover up the matter, and as
several of the participants or wit
nesses to the matter are not members
of the police department a police
commission Investigation might not be
sufficient."
("apt. Dlxon bßses his report on n
written statement made by Officer C.
J. Sweeny, detailed as wngonman.
Sweeny's statement was:
"One of tho police reporters named
Rraud, for a week after the arrest,
frequently complained of his hand
hurting him, and several times made
the remark that ho 'certainly gave
that nigger what was coming to him.'
"He made this remark and showed
his bruised hand to several officers In
the tiall of the station, but at this time
T cannot reoall who they were. But in
view of this man's injuries, and the
unpleasant notoriety It has brought on
the police department, I think it
should be investigated."
Rraurt last night declared he knew
nothing about the assault on Williams.

AFFINITY CHARGE
STARTLES COURT
Mrs. H. M. Daniels Takes Stand
Against Dressmaker Who
Is Seeking Divorce
TELLS OF AN INVADED HOME
Mrs. G. 0. Ringer Accused of
Having Won Husband of
Witness from His Family
When the trial of Mrs. Geno O.
TJlnger's suit for divorce was resumed
In Judge. Houser's court yesterday,
Mrs. Flenrietta M. Datllalfl caused a
sensation by testifying that Mrs. Kin
ger, in the role of an "affinity," had
invaded the Daniels' home. Mrs.
Daniels nlso is seeking a divorce.
Mrs. Daniels, ;i refined and attrac
tive women, declared she had decided
to testify to protect her home and her
children. She altered that her hus
band, J. H. Daniels, had told her that
Mrs. Ringer, who is a dressmaker, wan
his "affinity," and that he loved her
better than anybody in the world. Hit
husband has asked her to free him,
declared Mrs. Daniels, but she had re
fused because of her children and her
firm belief that he would marry Mrs.
Ringer If the latter were given a di
vorce. Her testimony was ostensibly
for the purpose of preventing this ar
rangement.
Mrs. Daniels filed suit for divorce
some months ago on the grounds of
cruelty, and the trial Is set for May
12. On the stand yesterday she would
not Bay whether she was going to con
tinue to prosecute the case or not. She
said her husband, who owns a grocery
store In the city, went to live at the
home of Mrs. Ringer. She alleged that
he was seen with the woman frequent
ly, and that he came to her and asked
her to get a divorce from him so that
he might be free. He told her that
the woman's name was Mrs. Williams,
she alleged, and acknowledged that he
loved her desperately. L,ater, dhe said,
he came to her and told her the story
WMM a myth and that he never went
with or loved any other woman.
Mrs. Daniels said she found out the
other woman In the case was Mrs.
Ringer and she called on h/T to talk
It over. She said that Mrs. Ringer
acknowledged a fondness for her hus
baDd and "gave herself away" In a
number of ways. She alleges she saw
a woman's apparel on her husband's
bed and became convinced that there
was an intimacy between tho two.
"I will not state what T think," she
said, "because T have no real proof."
Mrs Ringer took the stand and de
nied that any love affair existed be
tween her and Daniels. She declared
she admired him greatly. On being
que*tioned she said that It was not
until lnst Vovember that she com
menced going out on certain occasions
with Daniel*, but that they never
drank anything. She acknowledged
that the room occupied by Daniels was
next to her's and that there was a
door between. She said she used the
room to reach her front room and that
the clothing seen on the bed by Mrs.
Daniels was a new dress for a cus
tomer.
Daniels took the stand Inter on and
declared his wife was endeavoring to
secure his property. He took the part
of Mrs. Ringer and stated that there
was nothing but friendship between
them. , ,
The little daughter of Mrs. Daniels
was a witness also. On being ques
tioned, she told how she had been
awakened by the noise of her parents,
Mr and Mrs. Daniels, talking in an
adjoining room of the house. She said
their voices were raised above the or
dinary pitch and she distinctly heard
her "papa" tell her "mamma" that he
loved Mrs. Ringer more than anybody
in the world.
Following this statement Judge
Houser took the case under advise
ment.
LIQUID AIR EXPERT TO
SPEAK AT ASSOCIATION
Y. M. C. A. Entertainer Startles
Porter with Demonstration
William Fatty, the man -n ho entertained
large audimeas In 1-os Angeles seven years
ago with his demonstrations of liquid air,
appeared yesterday at the Y. M. C. A. bullil
lng, at which place he will lecture on Thurs
day night, with two very large and very
cold bottles of frozen oxygen, and caused
considerable amusement by his Impromptu ex
periments.
Oscar, the negro porter, admitted that he
was not fully informed as to the merits of
air In that form, and obligingly held out
his hand to sen how It felt. A moment later
he Interrupted a furious massaging of tho
trosted member long enough to protest feebly,
"I^waee. num. Ah done need that hand."
Mr. Tatty has added experiments with
wireless telegraphy and radium to his lecture,
ami promises a most interesting and con
vincing demonstration of tho future possl-
Millies of both subjects.
"Despite the fact that the high cost of
production," said Mr. Patty, "ha» prevented
the practical application of liquid air to many
commercial uees, its field Is constantly grow
ing, and the big steel companies use largo
quantities of It for cutting, with a blow pipe,
armor plate and other forms of «teel whluh
defy ordinary tools."
