GIVES HIMSELF UP TO FACE CHARGES Former Bookkeeper Accused by Father-in-Law of Threat ening to Kill IS RELEASED WITHOUT BAIL Confessed Defaulter Who Es caped Prosecution Will Face Preliminary Hearing Today Carl J Huber, former bookkeeper for the H O Harrison company, automo bile dealers, who disappeared several weeks ago under mysterious clrvum ftances and who a few weows later surrendered himself to the New Or leans police as a defaulter, appeared nt central police headquarters yester day and surrendered on a charge or threats to kill. ■...-» Huber disappeared several weeks ago after making a large deposit of money in a downtown bank for his employer* and a small deposit on his own ac count. When he did not return home that evening his friends became wor ried as to his -whereabouts and ap pealed to the police to assist In locat ing Him. His employers assured them that he was not short in his accounts and no reason could be assigned for his sudden disappearance. Several weeks later he surrendered himself to the authorities In New Or leans, stating he was wanted in Los Angeles on a charge of embezzling $500 from the Harrison company. His em ployers stated they did not want to prosecute him and he was released. Nothing was heard of him from that time until yesterday, when he walked Into Police Judge Rose's court and surrendered himself to Bailiff W. H. Hubbard, an old friend, saying he ■understood there was a warrant out for his arrest. Hubbard introduced him to Judge Rose and he was arraigned and his preliminary hearing set for this afternoon at 2 o'clock. He was i-eleased on his own recognizance. The charge was prefaired ngainst him by his father-in-law, Andrew K. Maartell, who alleges he threatened to kill him several times. Martell states that Huber and his wife -were separat ed on account of the former's exces sive drinking and that Huber blames iim for alienating 1 her affections.

Judge Conrey in the superior court I ruled against them in their suit to | compel City Clerk Lelande to certify I their referendum petitions as ade quate. The case was dismissed. The former watchmen are still full of fight and are considering the use of the initiative provision of the city charter. When the council passed an > ordinance abolishing their positions they promptly invoked the referen dum. When their petitions were filed they wore referred to the city attor ney. He reported back that one man had signed several of the petitions and this invalidated them. They were thrown out and as the number of names remaining was less than the to tal required, the city clerk refused to certify them to the council. At this Juncture the former watch men applied to the superior, court for a writ of mandamus to compel the city clerk to certify the names thrown out. While this proceeding was pend ing the council passed another ordi nance repealing the ordinance against which the referendum was directed. This put the petitioners in the attitude of fighting something that had ceased to exist. In dismissing the action yesterday Judge Conrey ruled that the petitions thrown out by the city attorney were invalid, for the reason stated by him. •-♦ SPECIAL TRAIN TO CARRY GUESTS TO KUNS' HOME Party from Los Angeles Leaves for Lordsburg Today The formal opening of the David and Margaret Homo for Orphan Children, recently presented to the Home Mis sionary society of the Methodist Epis copal church, will be attended by the eociety In a body today.

News of the Courts CHILD STEALER'S FATE IS IN HANDS OF JUDGE Probation Officer Makes Qualified Recommendation on Woman's Application for Probation The question of whether probation will be granted to Mrs. Catherine Smith, recently found guilty of child stealing, now rests almost entirely with Judge Davis. The report of Chief Frobatton Officer Dodds, filed with the court yesterday, is a qualified recom mendation for probation. "If it would be possible to release Mrs. Smith," it reads, "on a penal bond of sufficient magnitude to insure observance of the condition that she will hereafter cease from practicing her alleged profession, I would rec ommend that her application for pro bation be granted and her house be placed under the supervision of the Southern California Medical associa tion. Otherwise I would recommend that her application be denied. "I have known the reputation of this woman ever since coming to this city and it has always been of a very un savory character. "I have a leaf from W. J. Danford's r.-iph book in which it shows fees from Mrs. Smith aggregating $3000 in one month in 1908 to protect her from pos sible prosecution in certain cases that are referred to." At the hearing yesterday Dr. A. C. Pratt testified that in prison Mrs. Smith would not live a year. W. L. Warren testified Mrs. Smith is a woman of kindly nature. The Judge took the matter under advisement. Sentence, will be pronounced Wednes day at 9:30 a. m. VIGOROUS FIGHT STARTED FOR WILMINGTON LOTS Guardian of Manuella Adarga Wants Property Returned A vigorous fight for the possession of three lots in Wilmington, said to be worth $50,000, was begun before Judge James yesterday. The question rests entirely on the sanity of Mrs. Manuella Adargo, who deeded the property to her daughter, M. A. Camplllo, n 1903. The parties to the suit are Manuella Adargo, by her guardian, Thomas R. Whlttey, against the daughter, M. A. Campillo and T. E. Campillo. In addition to the attempt to show insan ity an effort is being made to show that the second defendant conspired to get the property. As a step in that direction the testimony of the daughter that she had never been properly mar ried to T. E. Campillo was secured. The case was continued till June 30. COURT SETS TRIALS OF TWO CATALINA FISHERMEN The trials of Salvadore Cariso and Steve Williams, who are charged with illegally setting nets in the waters off Catalina island, were pot yesterday by Judge Davis for September 1 and 2 respectively.

Oliver pleaded guilty to a charge of forgery in Judge Willis' court, and Wednesday was set as the day for sentencing. Ho was charged with drawing a check on the Security Savings bank for $21 and signing the name of one Samuel Page. F R. Rozales, who had formerly pleaded not guilty to a charge of fel ony, changed his plea to one of guilty, and his sentence will be pronounced tomorrow. LAWYERS TO OPEN FIRE IN MRS. DRIGGS' TRIAL The taking of testimony in the second trial of Margaret Driggs, charged with forgery, was completed yesterday. To day the arguments of the attorneys will begin.

TESTIFIES ABOUT POLICE RAID 'TIP' Houghton on Stand at Dixon In vestigation Admits Play ing in Poker Game HEARING IS AGAIN CONTINUED Board of Commissioners Finds Friction Exists in the Department (Continued from rage One} tloin had been given him that It was only a matter of time before the chief would have him dismissed, and he was advised that he would either have to "get" the chief or his own position would be lost. He claimed that these Impressions had been produced In his mind through statements of news paper men. msT,iKi:r> him Dlxon contended that both Dill and Sergeant Sebastian had a dislike for -him, and that this, perhaps, would lead them to color their testimony In regard to alleged statements that Dlxon made regarding his superior. Attorney Morton took his client In hand. "Have you," was asked, "been loyal to your chief and to the commis sion?" "I have done all in my power," re sponded Dixon, "to uphold my chief and the commission." Mayor Alexander interjected, "We are satisfied that there is friction in the department, and we are going to run it down If it takes all summer." RAID ON GAMBLING BOOM At the afternoon session of the inves tigation the raid on the gambling rooms in the San Fernando building formed the chief matter for investi gation. < The accused police official denied that he knew anything- of the fruitless raid of roooms 637 and 638 of the San Fer nando building until thirty-six hours after the raid had been attempted. He claimed that upon the dismissal of the purity squad and its assignment to patrol duty and the formation of the metropolitan squad he gave the new squad a list of places under sus picion as being disorderly houses, two of which were successfully raided by the police. O. H. May, the head of the metro politan squad, was asked by Dlxon's attorney: "What were the instructions given you by Capt. Dlxon on taking charge of your squad and reporting for duty?" MAY'S INSTRUCTIONS "He said: 'Arrest all violators of the law.' " "Did he mention any who were to be spared from arrest?" "He did not." Stacey Lamb, the agent of the San Fernando building, told of the events leading up to the time of the raid on the gambling rooms of C. J. Hughes and Frank Bartlett. "When Hughes and Bartlett came to me," said Lamb, "asking to rent two rooms to be occupied by a bona fide club, I told them to go to Capt. Dixon and secure his assurance that they were to run a legitimate club, and that there would be no police interference. They did not see Dixon, but some weeks later I was assured by Dr. A. D. Houghton that the club was to be run on a legitimate basis, and that hence there would be no police Inter ference." MTSTERIOUS MESSAGE Lamb gave the story of the telephone message which asked him to warn the occupants of rooms 637 and 638 that tho police were approaching, and of his having carried out the Instruction com ing from the unknown man at the end of the wire. Commissioner Topham denounced Lamb for having tipped off the gam blers. He was only quieted after re peated urglngs for silence on the part of his fellow commissioners. Dlxon was returned to the stand and testified that prior to the raid he had been apprised of a gambling game going on In the Sun Fernando building, and had instructed the officers who re ported the matter to him to go to any lensrth in securing evidence. He told them to cut holes in the plaster to watch the rooms, and that he would ptand behind them in event of a dam age suit. SAW RAID COMINO H. C. Seber, one of the men con nected with the alleged gambling out fit told the commissioners that bofore the telephone tip came to the San Fer nando building he was satisfied that a raid was to be conducted, as during the afternoon preceding the raid the hall had been besieged by several news paper photographers, who were indus triously taking pictures of the doors leading into the club. "What did you do?" Inquired Sidney Reeve, deputy city prosecutor. "Well, I sized up the situation; went t o dinner, and then concluded that I was in need of a long walk." Seber was not present when the raid was attempted. HOUGHTON ON BTAND Dr. A. D. Houghton was called, and awakened the interest in the case by insisting that the charge on which Capt. Dixon was being tried be read before he would consent to be sworn. It was explained that the reading of the charge had been waived by Capt. Dixon. "I don't care what Dlxon did, ' re sponded Houghton; "the charter is made for us all, and I Insist upon my rights." •"Do you refuse to be sworn?" asked the mayor. "I do not, but I want to be assured that I am going to be given a square deal." DENIES GIVING TIP On being assured that this would be granted him, Houghton testified that he had told Lamb that a legitimate club would be conducted by Hughes and Bartlett. He denied any participa tion in tipping off the Impending raid, and testified that at the time the raid was made lie was delivering a lecture before the Academy of Sciences. "Did you ever play cards in those rooms?" Houghton was Interrogated. "Yes, I have played casino there," he answered. "Have you ever played poker there?" asked Deputy Prosecutor Keeve. "Any gambler in the world will tell you that I never played a game of poker in my life," retorted the witness. "Did you ever try to play?" was in sisted. "YeH." Before leaving the stand Houghton told the commissioners that any state m.nt that lie had tipped off the gam blers was an absolute falsehood. Two newspaper reporters offered tes timony that Capt. Dixon had not been fair to all the members of the repor- $5.75 Btmr49S4^^DffMDWAY COR. 4TH. LQjANO£Ur* '* Women's Pumps £1-69 Women's Mid- \^%ig% and Oxfords ... .1 Summer Vests L*2<~ M iIQ .

A resignation which he presented a week ago was refused notice by the com mission. Parker, who was a former member of Captain Dixon's purity squad, was brought into the limelight through a letter presented simultaneously with his resignation last week, in which a woman made rharges of a serious na ture against him. RESIDENCE DISTRICT IS CLOSED TO CLAIRVOYANT Police Commissioners Revoke a Billiard Hall License The police commission decided last night that Mrs. H, Annuve would not be permitted to ply her calling as a clairvoyant in the residential district, denying her permission to conduct her business at 4620 Vermont avenue. She now has a permit to delve into the future at 753 South Hill street. A lengthy protest from property owners and residents in the vicinity of 4(520 Vermont avenue, asking that the application of Mrs. Annuve be denied, was received by the commission. Mrs. Abou Arroji was granted per mission to practice palmistry at 418^ West Sixth street. Mrs. Helen In- gersoll was licensed to conduct a clair voyant establishment at 121V4 South Broadway. The license of Clarence G. Hart to conduct a billinrd parlor at 228 East First street was revoked by the com mission after charges of allowing minors to loiter in the place were sus tained by the evidence presented. The commission took similar action on the license of George Gostas, who was found guilty of permitting dis orderly conduct to exist in his billiard parlor at 10S East Fifth street. The charges of conduct prejudicial to the best interests of the depart ment, preferred by Chief Galloway against Officer Earl Busse, were not heard before the commission but were continued to next Monday night. Capt. Flammer, who is one of the leading witnesses In the case, is out of tho city on police business. William F. Cooper, a former mem ber of the police department now con fined in the state hospital at Patton, was formally dismissed from the force. Cooper is suffering from locomotor ataxia. About a month ago he at tempted suicide and was committed to Patton. The city attorney delivered an opin ion that Cooper's eligibility to a pen sion would not be vitiated by this formal dismissal. SOCIALISTS WILL HAVE TICKET OF UNION MEN Leader Says New Labor Party Is Uqnecessary A. A. Holston, a prominent Socialist and attorney of Los Angeles, stated yesterday that the Socialist party of Los Angeles county will have a full ticket on the ballot at the primary election August 16 :iext, and that the candidates for nomination at this elec tion would run on a Socialist platform. "It is probable, however," said Mr. Holston, "that these candidates will be selected from the ranks of the union labor organizations. This appearing to be almost a foregone conclusion among the Socialists we fail to see any reason for the existence of a union labor party or ticket, which it has been reported some of the union labor leaders are attempting to form. "Practically every Socialist who will go on the ticket at J.he August pri maries will be a member of a labor union. We expect to work with tho support and co-optratlon of the union labor men and they regard our ticket as their own. For this reason the new union labor ticket spoken of seems to be superfluous."
