FATHER FIGHTS TO REGAIN DAUGHTER Four-Year-Old Girl Becomes Cen ter of Legal Mael strom TROUBLE BEGAN IN CHICAGO Dr. Schroeter Accuses Wife of Deserting Him, Taking Tot with Her Pretty 4-year-old Alice Schroeter, who for more than a year has been living peacefully with her mother and grandparents at 949 North Lincoln ave nue, Pasadena, suddenly became yes terday the center of a legal whirlpool. Her father. Dr. Oscar V. Schroeter, bringing his attorney from Chicago, be gan a struggle for her possession by having the little girl, her mother, Mrs. Ether Schroeter, and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James Z. Charbonneau, all summoned Into court before Judge Wil bur on a writ of habeas corpus. The powerful writ was served late the night before by the sheriff. A year and one-half before, according to the testimony of the father, he had returned tired from work one evening to his home in Chicago and found a note from the wife saying she had left him. The baby also was gone. After a few days he heard she was In the northeast part of the city of Chicago, and he hurried there, only to find she had gone the day before to other parts not known, having obtained money trom some friends. "When I did hear where she was I got my affairs In shape as soon as I could and came," said the physician. WAS USHAPPT "Was your married life a happy one?" iquestioned the attorney In examina tion. "Most decidedly not. My wife was highly extravagant. She did many things that were not appropriate, ran bills without my knowledge In many places, deceived me, even borrowed money in addition to running the bills. I paid her debts after she left. "We quarreled some, too. She would leave the baby with one of the neigh- Imrs for a whole day at a time. Often I would return at night to find the baby In the care of the woman next door, and my wife gone to a lodge meeting or somewhere else. "I gave her an even $100 a month to conduct the house with, but she didn't use it for that purpose." The wife, taking the stand, dpnied the greater part of what the husband had told, claiming she frequently got nothing to run the house with. "He asked me to get out and earn money, and was so unreasonable about money matters I could stand it no longer." MOTHER VNTIT Most of the efforts of tho father's tittnrney were to show the mother an unfit person to care for the child, the claim being set up that since coming In re Bhe had left the child with her grandparents for days at a time, while she journeyed to San Diego and other points. Except while searching for em ployment, the wife denied this em phatically. Something of the spirit actuating the. principals was shown when James Charbonneau, the aged grandparent, nrose in court to object to his son-in law using his name at nil. The court found it necessary to Inform him that ■UCh instructions were unßoupht from a/ witness. "When, later, Mr. Charbon neau took the stand he stated the physician's temper to be of the ungov ernable sort, while his daughter, on the other hand, was of the unusually mild type. An adjournment was taken until 4 f. m. Monday in order to obtain other witnesses, the child, In the meantime, being placeil in the care of Its grand parents, remission was given the father to visit her at any time. CONTEST ENFORCEMENT OF CITY ORDINANCE Light Co. Declares Law Licensing Trades Unconstitutional Five distinct suits, all directed against city ordinance No. 20,000, that licensing professions, trades and occu pations, were filed in the superior court yesterday afternoon. Like the com plaint of the Log Angeles Gag and Electric corporation of the day before, all allege unconstitutionality. The banks are the chief contestants on this occasion, being the Los Angeles Trust and Savings bank, the Security Savings bank, the German-American Savings bank and the Southern ♦rust company. In addition the Southern California Edison company Is a plain tiff. The ordinance resisted is that which the citizens ratified at the referendum election of June 30.

Next Mondity has been set as the time for hearing before Judge Bord well the request for dji injunction against the enforcement of the ordi nance in the Los Angeles f!n.s find Elec tric case. Probably all will be heard together. PUTS 70 DEGREE LIMIT ON MILK TEMPERATURE Council Decides That 60 Degrees Would Work Hardship The milk ordinance, to which ob jection was made, by dairymen be cause it required that all milk be kept at a temperature of sixty degrees, and which was amended bo the temperature of the milk was placed at seventy de grees, was passed by the city council yesterday. Councilman Andrews ex plained that because of Inadequate transportation facilities the council felt that an Injustice would bo worked on the dairymen by requiring the sixty degree standard, us milk would raise In temperature in unrefrigerated cars. Councilman T. L, O'Brien, stating that he had not carefully read the ordi nance, voted "no" on roll call. When the ordinance? was sent to the mayor's office for his pig-nature it was discovered that through some prror the ordinance read bo to require the milk to be kept at a temperature of sixty degrees. Mayor Alexander will not siijn it until the error ia corrected. ALICE E. SCHROETER, FOR WHOM A LEGAL BATTLE IS RAGING i WOMAN AIMS GUN TO HALT OFFICER Constable Sent to Seize Furniture Meets Resistance That Baffles FORBIDDEN TO ENTER HOUSE Mrs. Fisher Finally Turns Weapon on Self, but Relative Intervenes "Stand back! Don't you dare move another step, or I'll surely pull this trigger!" exclaimed Mrs. Goldie Fisher yesterday as she pointed a loaded pis tol at the head of Deputy Constable Harry W. Bell after he had broken open the front door of her home at 4413 Stanford avenue. The officer was given a claim deliv ery document issued by Justice Sum merfield's court on oath of the manager of a furniture company which alleged that Mrs. Fisher was unlawfully holding furniture belonging to the company. The document eet forth that the woman purchased furniture of the company, tho bill amounting to $125, this amount Mrs. Fisher having agreed to pay In Installments. Claiming that she was in arrears on the installment payments, the firm se cured a claim delivery, and, armed, with this. Constable Bell went to the house, determined to secure the money or the return of the furniture. Bell stated that when he informed Mrs. Fisher of his Identity she imme diately slammed the door and refused to acknowledge the service of the legal paper. Though his sympathies were with the woman, Bell had to perform his duty, and, placing his shoulder to the door, forced It open. An expressman and one of the firm's representatives accompanied him over the threshold, but the trio did not go more than a few steps when Mrs. Fisher pointed the revolver at the deputy and hysterically bade him to halt. Bell's companions backed outside, while the officer stayed to show Mrs. Fisher the futility of her resistance, but the determined woman, not wishing her home to be dismantled, did not let the gun waver and again ordered Bell to leave the -house. The deputy stepped outside, and, drawing his gun, displayed it to Mrs. Fisher's view, at the same time in forming her that he would never shoot a woman, but that he was determined to do his duty. He further Informed her that he was about to enter the house and she should think serlbusly before pulling the trigger. According to Bell, Mrs. Fisher then turned the gun. toward her right temple and threatened to shoot herself if he persisted in carrying out the orders of the court. It was at this exciting Juncture of the realistic drama that Mrs. T. Mar tin, a relative of Mrs. Fisher, appeared on the scene and made a settlement satisfactory to the furniture company. Mrs. Fisher at her home last evening said: •'I would have phot that officer, and he knew it. I don't blame him, for he was only doing his duty; but I do blame the furniture man. I wasn't going to lot him take my furniture away, for then the children and I would have had to sleep on the floor. I offered to pay the last installment, but they insisted that I pay $10 court and constable's fees, which I refused to do. I have no money. My husband is very sick in Kansas City, and I want to get to him; but I really don't know where the money is coming from. One of my little boys is Kick, too. "I never turned the gun on myself, and I tell you that officer would have had to walk over my dead body before he could have taken one piece of fur niture out of the house. He admitted that I had the drop on him." Relatives of Mrs. Fisher stated that she is an expert marksman, being able to hit a 25-cent piece at fifty yard 3 with a rifle.

Municipal Affairs BIRTHS FOR YEAR ARE 5186 AND DEATHS 4722 Tuberculosis Shown to Be on In crease Among Natives of the City There wore 4722 deaths in the city of Los Angeles during the fiscal year end- Ing June 30, showing a death rate of 14.2, estimated on a basis of population of 300,000, according to the annual re port of Dr. L. M. Powers, health officer, submitted yesterday at the meeting of the board of health. This Is 610 in ex cess of last year's mortality total. To offset the mortality record, there were 6156 births, showing an increase over last year's visits of the stork of 7.79. Tuberculosis claimed 781 victims out of 790 cases reported. It is considered that there has not been efficient work in preventing the spread of this disease, and the physicians are slow to report to the department the existence of a case under their care. The health of ficer states that physicians should co operate with the health authorities in stamping out this plague by promptly reporting the existence of a case in their practice in order that measures may be taken to prevent contagion. Dr. Powers says that there is no dis position on the part of the health de partment to interfere with a case under a physician's care, but that tho authorities merely flesire to see that measures are taken to check the spread of tuberculosis. t Of those who died of tuberculosis, 242 had not resided in Los Angeles a year. Seventy-one natives of Los Angeles were among the list of victims, show ing an Increase of the disease locally. Twenty-seven children less than 2 years old died of the disease. The tuberculosis mortality table of the last few years, with the exception of the one just ended, shows a lessen ing of the number of deaths, as com pared to the increase in population. Notwithstanding the population of Los Angeles increased through con solidation proceedings, the number of cases of typhoid remained almost sta tionary. There were 26 cases during the year. There were 8480 cases of measles. Dr. Powers recommends that more nurses be appointed to Inspect schools. There are now five nurses in the de partment, requiring that each one in spect twenty schools. Tho health of ficer favors a tuberculin test of cows supplying milk to Los Angeles, and asks for the appointment of a city veterinarian and four inspectors of cattle. CLUB ASKS THE CITY TO PROHIBIT FIGHT FILMS The communications from the Ebell club and the Civic association of Los Angeles asking that the council pass an ordinance preventing the presenta tion of moving pictures of the Johnson- Jeffries fight In Los Angeles were re ferred to the welfare committee of the council at yesterday morning's meeting. A doubt existed in the minds of some of the councllmen whether there was not an ordinance in effect covering such a matter. Council President Lusk read the sec tion of the penal ordinances of Los An geles which prohibits the reproduction of moving pictures of any prize fight or similar fight. It was suggested by Councilman TVashburn that when the committee was considering the prohibition of prize fight moving pictures it might be well to Investigate the moving picture re production of certain other subjects besides prize fights. He intimated that stricter regulation of the subjects re produced would be beneficial to the youth of the community. GARBAGE REPORT SENT TO WELFARE COMMITTEE The city council yesterday referred the report of the board of public works concerning the removal of garbage to a point five miles beyond the corporate limits before disposition of the same and in reference to receptacles for gar bage along the sidewalks to the pub lic welfare committee. Councilman Andrews seemed to think that an injustice was being done to Contractor Alexander, who he described as being "moved about hither and thither until he knoweth not where he goeth next." "I will require," interposed Council President Lusk," that in future any councilman quoting Scripture will Lk> required to give the verse and chapter ot the quotation in order that it may be verified." BOOK OF CITY'S PENAL LAWS FOR POLICEMEN A bound copy of the penal ordinances of Los Angeles will be added to the equipment of each police officer, if the supply committee acts favorably on the, request made to the council yester- day by the police commission. It was ■tated that each copy would cost $2, and $1.50 a year would be necessary to keep the book up to date with amend ments to the ordinances. BOARD OF HEALTH SAVES $3455 OF APPROPRIATION The board of hnalth saved 18465 out of the appropriation the city made tj tin? health department last year, and for tho ensuing year will ask for an appropriation of $75,600. It is stated that the board hopes that the city council will appoint four more milk Inspectors, four more sanitary inspec tors and a city veterinarian. POSTPONES WHARF RATES A. I. Firming, secretary of the har bor commission, asked the council yes terday morning to postpone the meet ing scheduled for the afternoon for a consideration of the establishment of a schedule of wharfage rates and harbor tolls until August 9 at 2 p. m., as further information on the subject was desired before the council would be aski (1 to take action. The request was granted. $1000 TO FIGHT CASE The council yesterday transferred fl ito the city attorney's fund to aid In defraying the expense of defending ;in net ion brought against the city by the Uiildh Hollywood Water company to restrain the municipality from en forclng the new water rates on that company.

Zerfing. police surgeon, has asked the city council to raise the salaries in his department. He asks that assistant surgeons be given $125 a month instead of the present $90 sal ary. He suggests that his own salary, in view of ihe number of hours ho must give to the emergency hospital service, be raised from $150 to $260. Zerfing states that in the future he shall refuse to attend a patient for pay subsequent to discharge from the hospital. This decision comes as a re sult of adverse criticism on the part of members of the medical fraternity.

The communication was referred to the supply committee.

EDDIE WANTS VOTE ON THE DICE SHAKING LAW Prosecuting Attorney Guy Eddie has suggested to the city council that at an early date a popular vote be taken on whether dice shaking at cigar stands shall be allowed. A measure prohibiting dice shaking at cigar stands was defeated at the general election of last December. Eddie claims that the spectacle of a crowd of men engaging in a dice game in sight of the passers-by on the side walks tends to besmirch the fair name of Los Angeles by giving a bad im pression of the city.
