Attorneys for Young Chinese Ask
Alternative Writ of Prohi

Testify Against Country
man Now on Trial
Startling events developed in the de
tention of Mills Sing, a Chinese hit,'!'
school boy it; yearn old, held for con
tributing to the delinquency of Abblo
Sheehan, In tlio superior court yester
day, when .luclk*'. Curtis D. Wilbur was
cited to appear before Presiding Justice
Allen of the appellate court next Mon
day morning to shew cause why an
alternative writ of prohibition should
not be Issued to prevent a preliminary
hearing of the charges against the
Chinese, which was to have taken place
this morning In department eight.
The action of the appellate court
caused a sensation in view of the fact
that the niiier Is one that is seldom
exerted by the former, and tlie citation
followed a series of dismissals and ar
rests of the Chinese \><>y which have
mule the sur*'rior court appear like a
shuffleboanl for the handling of legal
The citation against Judge Wilbur
was made after a petition had been
submitted to Justice Alien by Attor
neys Paul Schenck and George L. Mc-
Keeby, who declared that when Judge
Wilbur held Sing for a bearing he was
not sitting as a committing magistrate,
and was therefore not acting within his
jurisdiction. The attorneys cited the
law In which it is declared that all
mlsdeameanors committed In cities of
the llrst class are within the exclusive
jurisdiction of the police and city Jus
tice courts.
Attorneys for the defendant also held
that there Is io provision in the law
authorizing a judge of the superior
court or Juvonllo court, or nny other
magistrate, to sit as a committing mag
istrate for the purpose of conducting a
preliminary examination of misde
meanor charges.
jriMii: vniißVft cited
On the legal points being presented
to him, Justice Allen cited Judge Wil
bur to appear and explain under what
ruling he will hold the preliminary ex
amination of Mills Blng, and the un
usuul developments In the, case promise
a sensation in legal circles.
Another phase of the arrest of Sing
and efforts to secure corroborative evi
dence against him Is that a prominent
member of a Chinese society in San
Francisco visited local Chinese a few
days ago and declared that if any of
his countrymen gave evidence against
Sing it would result in a tong war
among the orientals which would
spread to cittea all over the coast.
In the meantime strenuous efforts
have been made by the authorities to
tind Abbie SMeohan, who has boon miss
ing for several months. She is a pretty
girl of 17, and Sing was first arrested
when found living with her in October.
Since his arrest she has been carefully
hidden by Chinese frlands of the
prisoner and it is feared that she has
met with foul play in the effort to de
stroy all evidence against the youthful
When Sing was arrested last October,
he was placed on probation hy Judge
Wilbur pending a hearing, which was
set for -May 6. This hearing never
took place and early in May of this
year, the precocious Chinese youth was
arrested oin the charge of contributing
to the delinquency of Abbie Sheehan.
a minor child. Following his arrest it
was discovered that Sing had secured
Kdith Curtis, another white girl unier
eighteen years of age, and was con
ducting a white slave traffic among
the Chinese in the city.
Only the statement of Edith Curtis
could be secured against Mills Sing.
She declared *c and other Chinese had
held her a prisoner at the Chinese mis
sion in this city against her will, and
that Sing brought numerous country
ben to visit her In the place and col
lected considerable money from them.
No corroborative exidence could bo se
cured against Sing for the good reason
•hat about twenty Chinese disappeared
from tho city immediately after his
arrest. It was then that the old of
fenae against Abbie Sheehan was sworn
to and he has boen held on It since.
Attorneys for Sing have secured his
dismissal from custody live times on
technicalities since ho was first arrest
pd. Each time another charge present
ed in a different form secured hip ar
rest and up to date the Chinese youth
has been arrested seven times, prac
tically for the same charge, presented
in a different form.
When first arrested in May, Sing
was taken to the Juvenile court and
after a hearing in whloh Edith Curtis
testified agninst him ho wns held to
Justice Summer-field's court. It Was
thought the ordinary course against
litni would bo followed and that he
would bo hold to answer in the super
ior court and tried.
Faulty information resulted in his
dismissal, but Probation Officer Me-
Laugrhlin arrested him again on an
other charge of mistreating Abbio Shee
lian. There was some flaw in the form
of the complaint as made out in the
district attorney's office and the Chl
nese was again dismissed. After these
proceedings were repeated until the
dismissals and arrests began to grow
monotonous, the case was again
brought up before Judge Wilbur ami
yesterday morning Attorneys Schneck
and McKeeby presented objections to
Judge Wilbur hearing the charges
against Sing.
When the attorneys finished their
objections, which 'were on the ground
that he had no jurisdiction in the case,
Judge Wilbur Bet the hearing of Sing
for this morning at 10 o'clock In de
partment eight. When the attorneys
attempted to argue with him. he slmt

In Tears. Mrs. Osborne Asks Aid
in Difficult Search
Weeping bitterly, Mrs. Jesse Os
borne appealed to the newspapers yes
terday to help her find her only son,
Lester, 16 yeare old, who disappeared
from his home, 572 North Hill street,
January 8 in company with another
boy who is believed to b» Earl Spicer,
two years his senior.
Circulars containing a description of
the boy and his photograph have been
sent throughout the country.
Last summer the boy disappeared
with Spicer and after a two weeks'
search by his mother was found roam
ing about the city, sleeping on dry
goods boxes In alleyways. He was
taken home, where he was ill for three
months with pneumonia.
It is believed the boy left home with
Spicer, with whom he spent most of
his time. Spicer is said to plying out
of San Pedro on some sailing vessel,
although it is not definitely known.

County Superintendent Says He
Finds Many Errors
Mark Keppel, county superintendent
of schools, has announced that he will
require H. C Miller, state school cen
sus marshal, to arrange the school cen
sus of Los Angeles city alphabetically,
taking out all duplicates and recapit
ulating the entire census or, in other
words, making a complete new report.
Mr. Koppel stated yesterday he had
found that children 4 years old and
attending kindergarten have been
marked at five years by the order of
the census marshal.
"We also fliid," he said, "that many
persons seventeen years old and older
were changed to fifteen and sixteen
years old. We find that a number
listed at seventeen, eighteen and nine
teen years were counted. A large num
ber were counted twice.
"Taking them altogether, there prob
ably are 1200 counted as census chil
dren who ought to have been listed
as under five years or not at all. The
census marshal's first report showed
59,166 children. Hia. second report
shows 56,208. His third report probably
■uill show 65,000."
The school tax is levied on the cen
sus, and the 4000 names which will be
taken out of Miller's report when he
recapitulates it will represent a saving
of $56,000 to the taxpayers.
F. Fouree appeared before Justice

cured and that it suffered excruciating
pain each time it was driven.
Union Leaders Say 1000 Work
ers Are Out, While Em
ployers Say 200
President of Union Tool Company
Admits 106 Machinists
and Molders Quit
With tho Metal Trades council as
serting that 1000 metal trades workers,
most of them from the large shops of
Los Angeles and the Craig shipbuild
ing plant of Long Beach, abandoned
their tools yesterdaj and the. employ
ers of the large shops asserting that
only a few more than 200 quit their
work, the exact situation in the strike
of the metal workers declared Tues
day night is not to bn ascertained.
The metal workers are just as posi
tive in their belief that the strike is
assuming menacing proportions as the
employers are In maintaining that it is
hardly noticeable and that they have
nothing to fear.
Hr.ports from tho five or six large
shops and the forty or fifty small ones
affected by the strike at a meeting of
the trades council in the Union Labor
temple last night Indicated that 1000
men had quit. John I. Nolan, Pacific
coast representative of the Interna
tional Molders" union, said that this
Included 225 moldors, between 800 and
fiOO machinists and 60 patternmakers,
besides a number of men of the allied
trades. At least 50, he said, had left
the Llewellyn iron works.
Nolan declared that the strike will
become serious if the men are not
granted their demand of an eight-hour
day and a $4 minimum wage scale.
He said that the metal workers had
only begun to show their power.
According to statements made yes
terday afternoon by the six employ
ing companies supposed to be most
affected by the strike only about 200
men quit work yesterday. There are
a number of small shops which lost
several workers, but Inasmuch as the
battle ground is supposed to lie in the
shops of the larger concerns the em
ployers say that there is hardly any
noticeable result of the strike.
The Union Tool company was the
greatest loser by walkouts yesterday
morning. E. D. Double, president of
the company, admitted last night that
106 machinists and molders had quit
work. There are 400 employes in the
Union Tool shops, so the output, he
says, will experience about a 25 per
cent hold-up. Mr. Double expects
most of the men to return within a
short time. He does not think that
any more will leave. He said yester
day that at least fifty of the men who
loft were non-union. AH of the union
men, be said, have already gone.
At the Llewellyn iron works it was
reported last evening that only 10 or
12 of the 752 employes left. It was ex
pected that no others would leave.
The managers expect no trouble.
nnniNE from tie-up
H. G. Miller, secretary-treasurer of
the Union iron works, said that since
the output of the factory was in the
main structural steel his company
would not be affected by the strike.
The three machinists who were em
ployed in the shops as toolmakers quit.
President Fred L. Baker of the
Baker Iron works said yesterday after
noon that 17 of his men had left their
work. Four or five ef these, he said,
were machinists and the others only
helpers. He looks for no others to
leave, although he admits that in spite
of the fact that he has been through
many strikes he yet knows nothing of
them and does not know what to ex
pect. He asserted that the Founders
and Employers' association as well ns
the Merchants and Manufacturers' as
sociation is firm in its stand for an
open shop and industrial freedom.
Seventy-five employes of the Craig
shipbuilding plant at Long Beach
joined the strike yesterday morning,
asking for the same things as the Los
Angeles laborers. The plant, which
employs 350 men, -was not seriously
crippled, according to John F. Craig,
who put other men in the strikers'
places as rapidly as possible.
San Francisco and Surrounding
Towns Avert Strike
trades employes of this city and sur
rounding towns were granted an eight
hour working day today in all shops
controlled by the California Metal
Trades association. About 15.000 pat
tern makers, machinists, molders, ma
chine blacksmiths and boiler makers
are affected. No written agreement
was signed, but it is mutually under
stood that the eight-hour schedule and
former wages shall continue Indefi
The shorter day went into effect on
the expiration of the agreement signed
about three years ago when a scale of
hours was fixed which would make the
elpht-hour day begin June 1, 1910.

DENVER, June I.—Today's confer
ence between ten representatives of
striking Globe smelter men and Gen
ral Manager Franklin Guiterman of the
American Smelting and Refining com
pany failed to settle the strike. The
men demanded an Increase of 30 cents
a day in wages. The company sub

increase or the restoration of the scale
of 1907. The strikers' committee will
leave the matter to a vote of the men.
DENVER, June I.—Representatives
of the engineers of the Denver & Rio
Grande railroad today had a confer
ence? with Horace W. Clarke, general
manager, at which they demanded a
new wage scale and other concessions
from the road. The increase asked was
not made public. Clarke will arrange
further meetings. One of the reasons
given for the demands is the high cost
of living.
BOSTON, June I.—Refusals of re
quests for wage increases were the
causes of several strikes inaugurated
in Boston today. About 1500 men, in

struck. If their demands are not grant

union men will go out.

Rev. John Bentzein of Portland to
Join Dr. Brougher
At a largely attended meeting of the
congregation of Temple Baptist church
last evening a report of the executive
committee was unanimously ratified,
calling to the assistant pastorate of
the church Rev. John Bentzien of Port
land, Ore. His salary was fixed at
$2000 a year.
The work of Temple church has
grown so rapidly and largely since the
advent of Dr. J. W. Brougher as pas
tor that an assistant to him became
an urgent necessity. Mr. Bentzein
served with him in that capacity at
Paterson, N. J., and Portland nine
years in all.
"In that time we've done some good
team work," said Dr. Brougher last
evening. "We've never had a disagree
ment or criticism, one of the other,
and as he's a wonderful man for the
details cii* pastoral work, I am sure his
coming will be a line thing for Temple
church as well as for me."
Carl Engle Seriously Wounded by
William Johnson
Because ho objected to being called

Carl Engle in a saloon at Fifth street
and Ruth avenue yesterday across the
nose with a knife, mistaking him for
the man who had called him a Swede.
Johnson was arrested.
Johnson and some friends were
drinking in the saloon and one of them
persisted in calling him a Swede. Fear
ing that a fight would result the bar
tender ordered Johnson out.
Johnson walked around to the rear

tonder. Instead of the bartender ap
pearing Engle opened the door and
was slashed. Englo went to the Crock

NEW YORK, June I.—Victor L. Ber
ger, who engineered the campaign
which made Emil Seidel the Social-
Democrat mayur of Milwaukee, is in
New York foi v. series or lectures on
Socialism. He declared the Socialists
expect to carry both New York ami
Chiriimo, and thinks both the olu par
ties are doomed.
"The Republicans are hopelessly
split and tho Democrats are "rotting
away" Is the way he puts it, in a
Statement given out today. "This first
important Socialistic victory in a large
city," he continues, "means the sweep
of the popular tide toward the radical
doctrines and the end of the two im
portant political parties.
"The Democratic party I view as a
decomposing carcass that met its end
because of lack of principles and
ideals, and the Republican party as a
disintegrating force in government.
"The spread of insurgency in the Re
publican ranks means the formation of
a new party that will be composed of
the defecting elements in that party
and the Democrats who have espoused
the cause of .W. J. Bryan.
"The other party will be made up of
machine Republicans and gold Demo
"Neither Theodore Roosevelt, nor any
other Republican is able to close the
wide breach in the party and the mori
bund Democratic party cannot be re
constructed sufficiently to take ad
vantage of the schism in the opposi
tion faction.
"In the forthcoming congressional
campaign, the Republicans will lose
heavily, but the Democratic gain will
be minimized by the inroads of Social
ism, which I believe will have repre
sentation In the next congress.
"The wounds in the body politic will
not be healed by the formation of new
parties and there will be no balm un
til the Socialists finally come into na
tional power. I am not fixing a date
for this event, but should the new par
ties continue in the mistakes of the
present dominant elements, a revolu
tion more disastrous than that which
overthrew the aristocracy in France
a century ago will result."
Committee Will Conclude Prelimi
nary Tour with Trip Today
The committee appointed by the
county supervisors to Investigate the
charges filed by the advisory commit
tee against the hgway commission will
resume its preliminary tour of the
county highways this morning and by
tonight expects to have concluded the
general review of the road work.
Joseph Scott and the other members
of the committee will go to the San
Dimas quarry today and inspect the
facilities, quality and quantity of rock,
etc., used in the road construction. It
Is believed likely the committee will
also inspect several of the culverts
and some of the bridge work on Pros
pect avenue. The greater part of the
day. however, probably will be passed
at San Dimas.
Tomorrow morning, or by Monday at
the latest, the committee will settle
down to the more strenuous work of
taking evidence, compiling facts and
mnking comparisons. When this work
begins a more careful and detailed in
vestigation will be made of those sec
tions of road work specifically cited in
the complaint of the advisory board.
It is expected that it will be several
weeks before the committee is ready
to make known any definite findings.
