ROUNDED UP AGED INDIAN WITNESSES Trial of Rindge Road Case Re calls Old Suit Brought by Indians LAND CLAIMED BY GRANT Pioneers Listen to Testimony Regarding Early Days in Southland Grizzled pioneers of the Santa Mon ica country who are testifying: for the government in its fight in the United States circuit court to open the roads through the Rindge estate to public lands which they reach, remind the old government officers of the time Ralph Dominguez, court crier and official interpreter in the Spanish and Indian tongue for the United States courts here, rounded up five of the y oldest Indian braves of the tribe of the great southwest down on the Yuma desert to appear as witnesses in a case then pending in court. The case was one which attracted much attention twenty-one years ago, and affects the disposition of 45,000 acres of land in San Bernardino county. It was brought by the San Gabriel mission Indians against John G. . North and Richard Girth. The white men claimed a grant from the Southern Pacific railroad. The Indians claimed the grant from God, and said It was a part of their reservation. HUNT FOB WITNESSES In order to substantiate the clear title of the Indians to the property it was necessary, as in the Rindge case, to bring forward witnesses who were x familiar with the property from Infancy. Domtnguez, who was at that time a deputy United States marshal, gent down into the desert to hunt wit nesses. ■'■ ■~v:'• Dominguez was gone many weeks. Court adjourned, patiently waiting for his return. The newspapers amused themselves by having him scalped, burned or buried alive by the Indians at intervals. Dominguez passed through many hardships, but he returned with five gray-haired chieftains many times older than himself. These Indians, two of whom are alive today, ranged in age from 75 to 140 years. Grizzled, bent and wrinkled with age, they testified in court to hav ing plodded across the Yuma desert when boys with adobe packs on their naked little backs for the building of the San Gabriel mission. Asked why they did it they replied for love of the padre whom Jesus had sent on earth. Jaun Saberia, who is the oldest Indian in the United States, and who still lives in the Arizona desert, was one of the witnesses. ATA OLD MEN Harabisio Cabajon, who was chief of the Yuma tribe and who is now dead, \va3 also a witness. He was 80 years old. His father died a few days pre vious to his departure, at the ripe old age of 140 years. Francisco Apache, another or the In dian witnesses, was 105 years old, and Ramon Largo, another, was 104 years old. These Indians, who knew the country before the coming of the white man, ha 1 been on the war path several times. Many traveled miles to see them and they excited great curiosity. Do minguea said they rode their horses many miles without tiring, and In their native tongue gave him volumnes of in formation. "Their memory was vivid of events from childhood," said Dominguez, "or they were the most cheerful liars I have ever met. At any rate they won the case for their tribe and the land ■was annexed to their reservation, much to the chagrin of the defendants and the railroad." FIGHT BOOZE ALL YOU WANT AFTER DOSE OF 'IT' Drug Clerk Discovers Salt Which Preserves Man's Noodle BOSTON, May B—lf in the near fu ture, you should be seated in your fa vorite cafe and see a man at the next table pouring enormous quantities of liquor into his "innards" and yet ap parently preserve the clarity of his mind and the steadiness of his body, watch him closely.

"THE BARRIER" WELL ACTED BY BURBANKERS Play Itself Has No Great Dra matic Worth but Seems to Please BY SHIRLEY OLYMPUS PLACE a diamond in which there is a flaw in the hands of an ex pert lapidary, and thought he work with consummate skill, he never will be able to bring* It to a state of polish and perfection. If the flaw hap pens to be great the casual observer will detect it at first glance. Always a microscope will find the imperfection. As with gems, so it is with plays. . "The Barrier," Eugene Presbrey's dramatization of Rex Beach's novel, produced for the first time in Los An geles yesterday afternoon at the Bur bank theater, is an Illustration of what has been said above. The fault of the drama is its unrealness, the introduc tion of too much extraneous matter, if the term may be used. Without dis cussing the meaning of "action," it may be said that "The Barrier" lacks that element. It is talky. In a word the play, which is a poor melodrama at best, has not the dramatic values to make It of lasting worth. No amount of clever acting and excellent char acter drawing can hide the defects and bring the play to state of perfection, even so that the casual . theatergoer may be deceived, or rather pleased. SCENES LAID IN ALASKA The scenes of the play are laid in Alaska, at an out-of-civilization trad ing post. The gunfire began twenty years before the opening of the play and terminated in the dark, the tab!e and lamp having been overturned. Two men, John Gale and Dan Stark, the most, dominating figures in the play, are engaged in a stage struggle to the death. When lights are turned up, one of the men is seen dying from a knife thrust through the heart and the other nursing a wounded wrist. The villain gets his deserts; the other who is a lesser sort of hero is raised to a plane of near-respectability and almost-heroism. Between the time the villain appears at the trading post and gets a drink of whisky a multiplic ity of events, some of them having no connection with the story, come to pass. Gold by the ton Is discovered in the immediate vicinity. A United States army captain falls in love with a supposed half-breed girl who is not half-breed at all, and wins her after being hectored, cajoled and threatened in a most artificial manner, although he has an honorable affection for the girl. There are a lot of other events of which it is needless to speak. HEAL BARRIER SELFISHNESS At times one is in doubt as to just what "the barrier" really is. Once it .seems that the obstacle between, the soldier-man and his dark-eyed, raven locked Inamorata is their difference in social standing. Again it seems, just for an instant, the fact that the girl is rich and her sweetheart a poor army officer. Again it seems to be the fact that she is supposed to be a half-breed Indian—which she is not. Again it seem a to bo the fact that her supposed father is not married to her supposed mother —thai he is a squaw-man. To the writer the real barrier to the hap piness of soldier and maid is his self ishness. Ho pities himself and forces one to think he Is making a great sacrifice In asking the girl to marry him. Just as though any respectable girl who loves and is loved is not worthy of being any man's wife! The various characters in "The Bar rier" are wonderful products of make up and environment, It really is too bad that the playsmith did not fur nish his characters with the same ex cellence of dialogue and action that the actors have given them in the me chanics of portrayal. Take, for In stance, David Hartford's John Gale, who has been hunted by an enemy for twenty years and who has given a (treat and good paternal love to the daughter of his enomy. If the char acter were one we could respect, Mr. Hartford's characterization would be one of the best bits of his career. One cannot respect a man who con soles himself with becoming a squaw man, after his sweetheart, the wife of another man, has been shot to death by her husband because of the illicit affection. Bo it is with Harry Me.s tayer's Poleon Dorpt, a French-Can adian hopelessly in love with the sup posed half-breed girl. Mr. Mestayer sustained his charaotpr In manner, makeup and dialect from first to last, and secured the only real sympathy of the play, but— ' HERO IS TAHNISHED ONE The lack of true southern chivalry, life selfishness, the Blavlshness to caste, the lack of thai boundless faith of love, makes Captain nurrell, U.

Quiet, fearless, unro- LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MOHNING, MAY 0, 1010. At the Ball Game lenting even when Death reaches out its hand, Stark does at all times Just What one expects. Mr. Landau never faltered or failed and made his part stand out in bold relief. There are two women in the play. One is the Indian squaw, Alluna, por trayed by Louise Royce, and the other .\v. la, the supposed half-breed acted by Marjorie Rambeau. Miss Royce hum- a most artistic presentation. Her make-up and her general demeanor wen- far above usual stock company efforts. There is too much artificial romance about Necia. hence Miss Rainb.au cannot make the character one of her stepping-stones to greatness. The charm of her personality and her deli cate gradations from grave to gay are not sufficient to make the spectator joyful for the character. The delicious naivete and the artless guilelessness of the sirl arc lost in sudden reversals to Inherent hardness of heart and nar rowness of psychological poise. We are thankful for Marjorie Rambeau, but not for Necia. Those who took "The Merry Widow" and "The Devil" seriously should go to the Majestic theater and witness a performance of Kolb and Dill's bur lesque Offering, "The Merry Widow and the Devil." Estimates and view points will be changed rapidly after an evening spent watching the comedians" travesty. •The Devil" was more or less satirical, more or less immoral, a sort of dramatic hysteria which swept over the country. It left many of its victims weak from horror. "The Merry Widow" was and is more or )■ ss of a disease which set the world to waltzing and has kept the world at that pleasant occupation ever since the first strains of the glorified cake walk were wafted to eager ears. The Kolb and Dill burlesque will banish the former horror and revive interest in the waltz. With material of basic worth it is easy to determine the fact that a bur lesque of the two pieces is exception ally clever. It is not a bit too ful some to say that the Kolb and Dill players are at their very best in "The Merry Widow and the Devil." The two comedians themselves are not the whole show, although they aro i largely responsible for the laughter. ! Maud Lillian Berri, Percy Bronaon and Laura Oakley, the last named a sort of a comic valentine old maid, are most decidedly in the running all the time. Miss Berri has the part of Fonia who wants to be and becomes a merry widow of the grass, not sod, variety. As in former offerings Miss Berri is stunningly gowned end sings several songs which bring forth prolonged ap plause. Mr. Bronson as Prince Dan dilo looks quite handsome and is pleas ing withal. C. William Kolb is the I" vil. calling himself Jollidog, and Max Dill is his big-stomached self as Heinrich Disch, a valet-janitor. Mr. Bwickard, Mr. Best, Mr. Stanton and Mr. McGulre do excellent work all the way through the piece. Their best ef fort is In the song and foolish dance, "Glrllea, Girlies, Girlies." Kolb and Dill also appear in this danre. The chorus is well drilled and handsomely gowned. In '-The Merry Widow and the Devil" all the famously familiar music of the Lehar oppra has been orabod led. Some new numbers have been in terpolated, The comedy is much broader anrl better tlian in the Vien nese offering-, so that on? Is almost forced to .say that 'The Marry Widow and the Devil" is more enjoyable than "The Merry Widow"—and vastly cheaper. g q * • • Ferris Hartman has elected to elope his remarkable run of thirty weeks at the head of his excellent musical stock company at the Grand opera house this week with that genuine old favorite, "The .Serenade." There isn't a thing in the entire three acts that would serve as a morsel of food for thought and therein is it popularity. To the lover 'if a restful hour of catchy, tune ful music, of pretty stage effects and tripping choruses "The Serenade" will never grow old nor tiresome. "The Serenade," as every theatergoer knows, is a vehicle for some delicious little songs that sparkle, that Ret into the subconscious mind and make you hum them in your sleep and that make you feel entertained and refreshed, af ter you have heard it all.

MOVING PICTURES SHOW ACCIDENT TO ACTRESS Mrs. F. B. Tomkins in Sisters' Hospital as Result of Fall From Buggy With every detail of the accident which may cost the life of Mrs. F. B. Tomkins recorded on the film of a moving picture camera, the young woman lies this morning on a bed in the Sisters' hospital, grievously hurt, the full extent of her injuries not yet determined. Physicians in charge of the case, however, reported her condi tion as somewhat improved last night, and said her chances for recovery are good. Mrs. Tomkins, who is better known to the theater-going public as Marguerite Favar, has recently been employed as leading woman of a stock company maintained at Glendale by one of the moving picture firms. Saturday after noon the company repaired to a ravine near Elysian park, where they pro ceeded to enact a drama, intended to be shown later in moving picture thea ters ull over the country. SHOW OI'KXS Mrs. Tomkins was cast as the heroine. She played the part af a young girl whose father, objecting to his daugh ter's matrimonial plans, takes her away from her sweetheart, who Is left stand ing disconsolately in the road as the old I man and his daughter drive rapidly homeward. In this scene Mrs. Tomkins, after having been bundled unceremoniously into the buggy, stood up to throw a farewell kiss to the man behind. Just then the horse, answering a touch of the whip, sprang forward and the actress pitched out of the rig, alighting on her head. She was picked up un conscious, and remained in that condi tion until yesterday afternoon. Con cussion of the brain with a possible basal fracture of the skull was the physician's diagnosis. This is the first instance on record in which an accident, threatening such serious consequences, has been caught in its entirety by a motion picture camera. THE POSSIBILITIES Should the young woman die it is likely that the pictures would be intro duced in evidence, in case an inquest i.s ordered; while in the event of a civil suit for damages, irrespective of a fatal termination of the accident, the film certainly would be offered as evidence before the court, thus giving rise to a new point in legal procedure. Before her marriage Mrs. Tomkins, then Marguerite Favar, played smi brette roles at Fischer's theater, now the Princess, on First street. Los An geles has been her home for several years, and she has many friends here. LOSES NAME BECAUSE WE WONT HAVE IT BACK Court Allows Deserted Son to Call Himself Russok NEW YORK, May B.—"naek was the name of my father—the father who de serted me and abandoned me when a child of tender years, leaving me in the care of my mother," was told by Her bert Back yesterday in the supreme court in a petition asking that his name be changed to that of Herbert B. Russok, the name of his mother. Judge Blanehard, struck by the novel purpose of the petitioner, signed the order granting Mr. Back the right henceforth to be Mr. Russok. Mr. Back stated to the court that he was born in America and lived at No. 100 West 144 th street. He had no debts, he added, nor would the change asked for do injury to anyone. Neither was H his intention to file a petition in bankruptcy nor to defraud anyone. For no other reason than the one stat ed, he said, did he desire to have his name changed.

The man takes note of present occurrences and can speak of them, but everything relating- to the past is a blank to him. he does not know who he iy, what his name is or where he lived. For ten days the man's life was de spaired of. For the greater part of that time he lay in a state of coma, and his death was hourly expected. A few days ago, however, he .suddenly re gained consciousness and tho physi cians began to ply him with questions. To their astonishment the patient proved as much in the dark about him self as they wore. The man, who was fairlj- well dressed, was found unconscious in Her riott street. There was no letter or pa per in his clothing to furnish a clow to his identity. The physicians wore puzzled over the cause of the patient's condition, as his organs were in an apparently normal state. Several times he rallied, but af ter each favorable turn hud a sinking spell. Finally when all hope had been abandoned he regained consciousness, but his condition was like that of a child. He remembered nothing.
