NEW STILE CURS GIVEN A TRYOUT 'Pay As You Enter' Vehicles are Installed on the Central Avenue Line PICO WILL GET THEM NEXT Gates and Signal Buttons Baffle Passengers Not Accustomed to Their Use "Pay as you enter" street cars were put Into operation on the Central ave nue line of the Los Angeles street rail way yesterday, thirty-seven of the new cars being in service Their tryout was seemingly a success, as the regular schedule time was maintained for the greater part of the day, although no layovers were possible at either end of the line. This necessary rush will prob ably be overcome in a few days, how ewi-, as yesterday the crews were hand icapped by new cars, stiff trolley poles, which continually jumped the wire and a innxi vi pttusenKera who liiii not un derstand exactly what was expected of them. Many little comedies were enacted yesterday by the traveling public who were not "on" to the ways of the new system. People would insist on trying to pry open the exit gate, which dues not, will not and cannot open until the car has come to a dead stop. This fiat is operated by compressed air and is under the control of the' motorman. There is one other exit Rah- at the rear of the car, which most people used yes terday in preference to waiting until the front pate WBM opened. The average time taken by those pet ting on the cars was no greater than the time consumed in boarding the old style cars, where only one or two pas sengers were getting on. In cases where a half dozen or more passengers were mounting, the delay was greater! however, as those at the rear of the line were compelled to wait until those in front paid their fares and received transfers. Another delay is at railroad crossings, where the conductor has to collect his fares before he can go out in front and flag his car across the tracks. Promptness was facilltati d yesterday by having railway inspectors and switchmen located at each end of the line to attend to changing the trolley, putting the fenders up and down ami doing other stunts necessary before the cars can start on their return trips. coxnrrroßN not commi nicativk The conductors on the new cars are about as communicative as graven images and seem to have no desire to explain how things should be done. This feature does not aid the passen gers in learning to any great extent, and several times yesterday caused the loss of much time. When a passenger desires to get off the cars he reaches above his head and pushes a button which signals the con ductor. The latter in turn signals the motorman. This system is successful in the day time, and in cases where the passenger knows the streets well enough to know where to dismount, but at night and to strangers proves troublesome. Yesterday several passen gers who desired to get off at the Arcade station were carried by because they diil not understand how to stop the car.';. As yesterday's run was in the nature nf an experiment it is probable that a number of these bad features will be eliminated as soon as discovered by the railroad- company. Forty more cars are now being rebuilt in the Los Angeles shops Into "pay as you enter" cars, and these, as soon as completed, will be put into operation on the Pico heights and Hooper avenue lines. In time all the Los Angeles com pany's cars will be of this new type, as In the future all cars sent to the shops for extensive repairs will be built over into the "pay as you enter" kind.

PROBATIONARY SYSTEM PROVES BIG SUCCESS Juvenile Offenders Ordinarily Prove Tractable When Placed in Charge of the Officers What mysterious spell is there in the probation office of Los Angeles county whicji so affects the minds of boys and Kills of youthful age that it has a stronger hold on them than either their parents or the law? That is tin' question which has been mystifying detectives, parents an 1 others who have had anything to do with delinquent children brought into the probation office each day after they are disposed of by the Juvenile court, which pen. rally places them on probation. Chief Probation Officer Dodds and Probation Officer McLaughlln both ap p. ar to have some peculiar power ovi r the minds of the youngsters which makes them confi ss their misdeeds and causes them to try to live correctly. MANY REPORT WhKlil.Y Hundreds of girls nnd boys who have been found guilty of delinquency in one form or another during the-past few years report to the probation offi cer once a month >>r mice a week, Many of them have defied their parents and the juvenile court habitually, but once they gel into the hands of the proba tion office and commence to report reg ularly they usually experience a change of heart and try their best to keep on tie straight path and "make something Of themselves. ' Several instances have arisen of late win re youngsters, reporting regularly to the probation office, have violated tin law in some respect once more and have been apprehended. They have .1 any '!< linquency to detectives, parents and tie court, but when con fronted by a probation officer have broken down-and confessed. It lias become a matter of pride with the probation officers, this power over the youngsters which enables them to secure complete confession of their misdeeds, and it is claimed as the chief of the successful application of the probation law. UF. THI.I » THE BBCBET "There is not much of a scent about it, aid Probation officer Dodds yes terday, 'it is simply a case where we place the future of the delinquents in their own hands. Wo respect their con ns and take an interest in I ach person reporting to the office.

"The main tiling is to talk to them as though you were on the same basis with them. rl'h" trouble with many would-be- reformers is that they talk from too high a standpoint and so gain iii the interest nf the young people.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MOKNTNG, MAY 16, 3010, WILL INVESTIGATE SHOPBELL DEATH Woman Patient Seen to Fall from Window of the Good Samaritan Hospital POLICE ACCUSE OFFICIALS Witness Says Faces Appeared at Window Peering Down on the Prostrate Victim The coroner and the police depart ment received information yesterday that will cause them to make a rigid Investigation Into the death of Mrs. Mamie E. Shopbell, wife of a real estate broker living at 206 West Tenth street, Who died under mysterious circum stances Saturday In the Good Samari tan hospital, where she was a patient. Members of the board of directors of the hospital will investigate the death and the management of the institution, according to a report. .>:•>"■** The coroner said yesterday that he jriiMi.lliiv vvOuEJ lioiu eUi uKjucal LUUit) despite Dr. Pahl's assertion that be is willing to sign a certificate that Mrs. Shopbell died of nervous shock. Information obtained by the police and coroner yesterday from Mrs. J. E. Hoxey, 9-2 Potter Park avenue, whose residence adjoins the hospital, is deemed important. Mrs. Hoxey de clares she saw a woman, who proved later to be, Mrs. Shopbell, fall from a window of the fourth story of the hos nli Kce adjoins the hospital, is tiled Important. Mrs. Hoxey de nes she saw a woman, -who proved >r io be .Mrs. Bhopbell, fall from a idow of tlie fourth story of the hos pital and strike the ground, and that she lay there some time before she was j picked up and carried inside the build ing. Mrs. Hoxey believed at the time that some one had thrown the woman through the window, as the woman ugh the window, as she says she saw several jjprsons appear at the win dow Immediately afterward and look down at the prostrate form. Mrs. Bhopbell entered the Good Sa maritan hospital Thursday for an ope ration which it was thought would al leviate the pain she suffered from a complication of diseases. m:i:n to kaix, She was seen to fall from the window he was seen to fall from the window of her bedroom Thursday, and accord ing to a report made later to the coro ner, died from nervous shock. The po lice were notified of the incident, and detectives sent to make an investiga were notified of the incident, and lives sent to makii an investiga tion, but they were repulsed by the management of the institution, and re ported to police headquarters that they were unable to headquarters that con •re unable to gather any facts con cerning Mrs. Shopbell's death. Captain Flammer, chief of detectives, thought the case needed investigation and noti fied Coroner Calvin Hartwell, who prob ably will hold an- inquest today. The coroner's office is said to have experienced considerable difficulty in ascertaining the facts of several deaths in the Good Samaritan hospital. Police records show that a notorious diamond thief was apprehended while a patient in the institution under an assumed name, and that he had given a dia mond to Dr. Pahl's wife in payment for the physician's services. Mrs. Pahl, who was in possession of the diamond, refused to give it to the detectives, and the police were forced to obtain a search warrant before they recovered the valuable stone. Instances are cited by the police where inquiries as to the condition of patients, who, as was learned later, were dead, were met with replies that they were "doing very nicely." As a result, newspapers reported certain persons were improving, and telegrams were sent to their relatives to the same effect, when in fact the patients were dead. V. ■'". Another instance is cited when an in •e sent to their relatives to the same ■ct, when in fact the patients were nother instance is cited when an in sane patient escaped from his captors in the hospital and climbed to the roof of the building in the cold air, scantily clad, and of the refusal of the nurses and attendants to bring him down. Af ter hours of exposure the patient was brought down from his perilous posi tion by policemen summoned by people living near the hospital. Gregory Perkins, jr., secretary of the board of directors of the hospital, said yesterday that if the Investigation, either by the police, the coroner or his associates, showed that either Dr. Pahl or his wife had suppressed the news of the death of any patient during the i time of their management, both the j physician and his wife would be dis missed from the service of the Good Samaritan hospital. mXI.INi: ALL INFORMATION The hospital of the Good Samaritan is an Episcopalian institution, and I Bishop Johnson is presrdent of the ' board of directors. Last night, in com menting upon the Shopbell case, the bishop said that the hospital's only reason for secrecy in this, or any other case, is to protect the patient or the patient's family. He added that the ! hospital authorities are frequently an noyed by Inquiries which are regarded as impertinent and which come from persons having no right to the informa tion they request. He further said that I In- would call Mrs. Pahl, who is the executive head of the hospital, on the I telephone and request her to make a statement for publication. This statement, when It came, how ever was merely a repetition of what the bishop had already said. Mrs. Pahl passed the buck right back. She said the bishop had been apprised of all the facts in the case, and that those same facts, In their entirety, had been in the possession of Coroner Hartwell from the first At the same time that she declined to make a statement for publi cation she was busy preparing a writ ten statement of the case for submis sion to the board of directors. > Coroner Hartwell, to whom Mrs. Pahl said bishop had full information, ised the buck right back.

I SVMMONB ATTORXEV GENERAL "During the Bth, 9th and 10th I gave much consideration to the Glavla record as was consistent with previous engagements, but paid no attention to the speeches. (in the 9th I tele graphed the attorney general to come to Beverley that I might consult with him on the case. He arrived Satur day afternoon, September 11, and pur suant to an appointment made by telephone, came to my home on Sun day morning, September 12. Ho then delivered to me the draft of the opin ion prepared by Mr. Lawler, and said he had had an opportunity on coming from New York to read the answers of Mr. Ballinger and others. I read it and then said to him I had made up my mind as to my conclusions and had drafted part of my opinion, but I wished him to examine the full record and bring me his conclusions before I stated mine. He took the whole record away. "During the day I examined the draft of opinion of Mr. Lawler, but it was thirty pages and did not state the case in the way in which I wished it stated. It contained references to the evidence which were useful, but its criticism of Mr. Plnchot and Mr. Glavis I did not think it proper or wise to adopt. 1 used only a few para graphs from it containing merely gen eral statements.

MAKES BRIQUETTES OUT OF SAWDUST Local Man Perfects Invention Which Will Provide New Fuel for Nation GOVERNMENT GRANTS PATENT Fuel Is Cleanly, Durable, Inex pensive and Burns Consider ably Longer Than Coal A new fuel, especially designed It the relief of householders, who wit blackened hands and soot-smudge faces have sought to construct a cliei' ful fire in the grate with coal at J'-O ton, has been invented by a Los Ant lan, David C. Met'an, proprietor the McCan Mechanical works on Lc Beach avenue, one of the largest pin of its kind in the city. The fuel Is wood briquettes, man. fiuiu tho iofu.-e 01 pittnillK ami saw mills, and is'the result of two years of hard study by Mr. Met'an of a means of compressing wood shavings into a block of a size convenient for use in stoves and grates, without tho use of a cure or Inflammable cement as a means of holding the substance together. The claim of discovery allowed to Mr. McCan by the United States pat ent ■ottice on March 11 reads: "As an article of manufacture, a compressed, elongated, cylindrical briquette, having rounded ends and composed of wood shavings and the like." There are now pending twelve patents on the auto matic machinery designed to produce the blocks, each covering many sepa rate claims. "For many years inventors have en deavored to produce a block of com pressed wood shavings which would stand the handling necessary to trans fer it from the factory to the point of consumption," said Mr. McCan yes terday, "but they all have failed to produce a commercially successful arti cle because, either using a block having square corners or a cylinder with square ends, they could not prevent them from crumbling when bandied, either by using a core or an inllamma ble cement as a binder. "The success of my discovery hinges on the law of physics which provides that when a loose mass Is compressed in a cylinder along lines concentrating on the central point, the mass -will co here without the use of any foreign I substance as a binder. WILL STOP 810 WASIB "It has been estimated that $2,000, --000,000 has been lost from the resources of the United States by the destruction of the waste products of the sawmills and wood-working factories during the past forty years. Aside from wood waste, the briquettes can be made from any carbonaceous material, such as we*eds, roots and straw." The machine with which Mr. McLan manufactured the briquettes on which he secured his patent is a massive group of cast metal, weighing 40,000 pounds It can well be imagined that such weight and strength are necessa ry, as the loose shavings fed into the pressure chamber are eleven times the hulk of the completed briquette. The pressure used is 35.000 pounds to the square inch. The briquette being three inches in diameter, makes it necessary for the machinery to be constructed sufficiently massive to withstand a pressure of more than a quarter of a million pounds. In spite of its weight, the press is well balanced and is ope rated by a 20-horsepower motor. The machine is entirely automatic and will run without attention for an indefinite period, turning out a ton of briquettes per hour. The supply of the plantß installed will be by means of a belt conveyor trom the machines to a bin from which the shavings or sawdust will be removed by a. suction fan, which will allow all foreign mat ter, such as nails, rocks or solio. pieces of wood to drop to one side. An auto matic measuring device on the press allows a certain quantity of the shav ings to. fall into the supply chamber, where a plunger forces it into the main pressure cylinder, the supply plunger forming part of the wall of the main pressure chamber, dropping back on the return stroke and allowing the briquette to fall out of the cylinder. Two plungers operate in the main pres sure cylinder, the rear plungev being reinforced by heavy springs, which take up any overcharge of sWvings or provide an escape if any foreign ma terial finds its way into the chamber. WILL 8813. AT *7 A TON Mr McCan expects to be able to sell the briquette at retail at *7 per ton. Fach one is seven inches long by three inches in diameter, with founded ends, and weighs a pound and a half more than lignum vitae, the most dense of natural woods. The inventor claims that it will burn for an hour, steadily and brightly, gradually disintegrating from the expansion of the air inclosed in the fiber of the wood. "The invention is past the experi mental stage," Baid Mr. M.-ian. "Hundreds of tho blocks have been turned out by the machine, not one of which has shown a tendency to crumble when handled. They burn brightly with le«s smell and smoke than natural wood and burn equally well in air tight heaters or open grates. They are absolutely (lean and can be handled without soiling the most delicate hands. "The blocks have stood very rough handling without crumbling and even when sawed into quarters have held their shape." _ CHICKEN IS WITNESS AT TRIAL OF OWNER NEW YORK, May 15.—Exhibit "A," in, shape of one live chicken, was the best witness for Mrs. Tlllie Gelsend of Brooklyn, when she was arraigned to day before Magistrate Hylan in the New Jersey avenue court on complaint of Jacob Williams, who runs a kosher butcher shop and who alleged she had stolen the chicken.
