was accused several months ago of

that Mr. Howard is not a mean man.
If he would only take the trouble, he
might make everything clear and ex

the case of Jesus Miranda, charged
with murder, were arrested on bench
warrants yesterday by Deputy Sheriffs
Alexander and Bepulveda, The men are
F. N Miller, W. H. Jackson and Phil

in jail until their testimony is taken

cause why they should not be punished
for contempt.

crimes.
Joseph Murphy Is the man who
offered a Chicago judge his wooden
log as payment for a $.> fine the Judge
had Imposed because the previously
mentioned Murphy had forgotten him
self and had become Intoxicated. Not
having $5, thn first thing that Murphy
thought of when lined Was his wooden
log. Murphy did not stop to consider
that the leg was of email value as a
marketable, commodity. It might have
been worth $5 to him, but to the World,
which has little sentiment in barter
and trade, the limb—apple tree— was
probably worth little more than $2.40.
In the first place. It had been worn
for some time, so It was necessarily to
bo classed as second-hand goods.
Second, it was made to order. Murphy
having been measured for it by a
fashionable Chicago carpenter, so
there was a slim chance of it fitting
the general public. It must have been
very embarrassing to the judge when
Murphy made his peculiar proposition.
He had enough business judgment to
realize the Intrinsic worth of the
article in question, and yet it must
have been hard to express his opinion
upon what to Murphy was surely a
most delicate subject.

Some Women
THAT hair Is scarce is known by all
persons who watch the markets
carefully, but. even the mosi de«
voted market fan would hardly think
thai it is so scarce that burglar*
should Include; it on the eligible lis-l of
stealabe articles, Mrs. Qraos Bvam
of St. LOUIS does not know why a
burglar stole her raven locks a» she
slept one balmy eve. There Is no real
reason why anyone should want hair
these days, n lias been so long since
any genuine hair has been seen thai
it is no longer expected In even the
most exclusive circles. There are SO
many satisfactory Imitations that no
man should risk his liberty In an ef
fort to obtain thi"! original thing. The
only plausible explanation that can be
given for this thief's strange taste Is
that be is a collector of curios, with
an especial liking for relict of aivi'iit
days.
Miss Louim L. Obcrmullrr, hollo girl
for an Alton, ill., telephone company,
asked her employer to bo allowed to
take a few hours off to got married.
The employer, a married man probably,
at least a man with Borne grudge
against matrimony, refused to grant
Miss Obermuller leave of absence. Ho
might have had a suspicion that she
wanted to spend the afternoon at the
Alton ball park eating peanuts and
drinking pop and throwing the peanut
bUtollij ttiiil "'"' l'"P bottles at ill'- Uliip,
but, whatever ho thought, he refused.
M4ss Obermuller said nothing, that is*,
to her employer. Of course, being a
telephone girl, she had to say some
thing to the customers. She was heard
to make such remarks as "Number?"
and "Lino busy" a number of times
after her talk with the cruel employer,
but nothing was thought of It. The
time for the marriage was set. Time
sped. Hour by hour the appointed mo
ment drew near. A half hour before
the day and date and the minute, Miss
Obermuller left her post. She had
stuck beautifully, beautifully. But
now she deserted. Then she went and
got married. The minister and bride
groom, two very essential articles on
the property list at a wedding, were
waiting. The. Alton Telephone company
will now have to employ a new tele
phone girl. Serves them right.
Tastr 'is a funny proposition. Rome
like this and some like that, and what
one would abhor another would revel
in. There is a woman in St. Louis,
Mrs. 'li'irpp Everhart, who is basing
a plea for divorce on the ridiculous
charge that her husband forced her
to plow. The mysterious thing is that
any woman of refinement should have
an objection to such delightful outdoor
exerci.se. The charge. It seems, would
be good reason that the marriage con
tract be reinforced rather than it bo
severed. What ordinary wife is of
fend the opportunity of such sweet
employment, far from the madding
clubs, far from the toil of the bargain
counter and the fumes of the midnight
supper? What vocation could be more
delightful than that of a chauffeur of
a country plow? Nature to the north,
south, east and west. Nature on all
side*. Nature everywhere. To temper
criticism with kindness, as the dra
matic critics Bay, Mrs. Everhart is an
unappreeiatlve wife.
Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont, suffragist,
addressed a gathering of nurses in
N<nv York recently. Mrs. Belmont told
the nurses that they ought to have a
union. The possibility of such a na
tional calamity makes all thinking
persons shudder as the aspen leaf,
which is something remarkable In the
\vny of shudders. Think of a nurses'
waikout. Suppose that you are down
with the gout. There is a strike and
your nurses desert you. Tou join with
other afflicted in hiring strikebreakers.
Tou employ a corps of non-union
nurses brought west on a special train.
The striking nurseß find it out. They
besiege your house. They pitch, un
derhanded but forcibly a fulisade of
pebbles through the window of your
sick room. A large pebble hits you on
the gouty knee. There is no escape.
The house is surrounded by nurses.
Let us hope that this terrible picture
will never become realized.

WOULD STAY ERECTION OF
WATER BOARD BUILDING
Improvement Association May
Take Case to the Courts
At a meeting of the North, North
oast and Northwest Improvement as
sociation yesterday afternoon in the
chamber of commerce committee
rooms, resolutions were adopted in re
g-ard to civic Improvements among
which was the matter of preventing
the water board from completing its
new building, by the process of law if
necessary.
This new building is being erected
on the corner of Fifth and Olive streets,
against the wishes of the city coun
cil, which says the board should be
housed in the city hall.
A petition was also adopted asking
the city council to change the old city
cemetery Into a park and also to ap
propriate $100,000 for the payment of
work on the completed Sunset boule
vard. This work will cost over $700,
--000 and the council is asked to bear a
share of this expense because of the
increased cost of purchasing condemned
property.
A committee was apointed to look up
the weed ordinance if any and if one
is found which will answer the purpose
a petition on enforcement will be pre
sented to the proper officials, with the
intentions of keeping weeds off vacant
lots and sidewalks.
Attention was called to the fact that
Los Angeles' vantage point in regard
to the harbor situation lay in the trans
portation and a resolution was adopt
ed pledging the association for a mu
nicipal railroad to the harbor.
DRUGGIST PROVES TO JURY
HE DID NOT SELL MORPHINE
F. M. Eaton, proprietor of a drug
store at Lake Shore boulevard and
West Temple street, was found not
guilty of selling morphine without a
physician's prescription by a jury yes-,
terday following his trial in Police
judge Frederlckson's court.
Baton was arrested May 2 by Officer
p\ A. Brown, Inspector of the state
board of pharmacy, on B charge of
selling morphine to 1,. N. Raphael
without a prescription. Raphael, it was
alleged, came from the drug store and
When searched by Brown had morphine
in his possession which he said he had
purchased from Eaton.
Raphael was arrested ana given a
iail sentence of fifty days on a charge
of vagrancy.
It appears from the testimony in
troduced at the trial yesterday that
Raphael stole the morphine instead of
Baton selling it to him.
The jury was out only ten minutes.

FELLOWSHIP PROTESTS
AGAINST PRIZE FIGHT
Churchmen at Banquet Denounce
Jeffries-Johnson Match
Members of the Los Angeles Fellow
ship to the number of over 200 Bat down
to dinner at Christopher's last evening.
Reynold [■:. Blight, minister of the Fel
lowship, was toastmaster, and toasts
were responded to by Mayor Alexander,
Dr. S. Hecht, rabbi of the B'nai B'rith
temple, Councilman J. J. Andrews, Mrs.
M. K. Garbutt and Arthur Mayers.
The greatest of enthusiasm prevailed.
There was much chorus singing, and a
most delightful evening was spent.
Hy unanimous standing vote the fol
lowing resolution was passed with
much applause:
"Resolved, That we, the Los Angeles
Fellowship, express our emphatic pro
test against the prize fight advertised
to take place In our state on July 1.
We believe such exhibitions are sub
versive of the best Interests of the
state, are contrary to the ideals of hu
manity, are out of harmony with the
progressive spirit of the age, and should
be prohibited In the interest of public
order and morality. We also believe
that the widespread advertisement of
the event, and the discussion of the dis
gusting detail of the preparations, pan
der to the basest passions. Instigate to
brutality and crime, and are demoraliz
ing- in their effect upon the youth. Wo
therefore urge our local press to elim
inate the prize fight news from their
pages."
Among those present were: Gen. and
Mrs. K. C. Bellows, Mr. and Mrs. Qeo.
W. Ferris, Dr. and Mrs. T. Pereival
Gerson, Adam Boeck, Mr. and Mrs.
Edwin M. Williams, Mr. and Mrs, A.
M. Seckler, Mr. and Mrs. H R. Warren

SANTA FE FREIGHTING
HEAVY; BUY MORE CARS
Business Said to Be Greatest in
History of the Road
Santa Fe freight operatives stated
yesterday that the freight business of
the southwest is now 20 per cent larger
than It ever has been, even during the
record-breaking months before the
slump, in 1908. Proof of this statement
Is found in the orderg which have been
placed by the Santa Fe for additional
equipment with which to handle the
enormous tonnage of traffic. Eight
thousand five hundred new flat cars
will be delivered to the Santa Fe sys
tem by September 1.
The Santa Fe has also had to order
5000 new box cars to handle miscella
neous freight, including general mer
chandise and grain from the middle
west. In addition to this order, thin
road has placed orders for 1000 dump-
Ing cars and 1000 ballast cars, to be
used In the track work now under way
along the southwestern divisions. An
other record-breaking order Is Jor 1000
large cars, half of which will be used
for transporting automobiles and the
otlior half for furniture.
