DEFENDANT CALM AT MURDER TRIAL Accused of Killing Wife. George Figueroa Stoically Faces Judge and Talesmen JURY SELECTION DIFFICULT Mother of Prisoner and Victim's Relatives in Court During Opening Hours With a band of crepe around the Jpft ileeve of his perhapi v an evidence of grief over the first h of his wife, Mrs. Sarah Pugsloy Figueroa, whom he is accused of killing — George Figucroa appeared In Judge Willis 1 court yesterday for the opening of his trial on the charge of murder. Seated by his attorneys, Joseph Sey mour, jr., and Fred AY. Morrison, Figueroa retained his self-possession to a great degree, despite the fact that the trin! Is a matter of llfo or death to him. His only evidence of concern was an extreme pallor of the lips. His mother, who, with Fijsuerna's father and aunt, sat almost directly behind him, viewed the proceedings, through tears, often finding It neces sary to clear her vision by the use of the handkerchief she constantly clasped in her hand. Mrs. Glendora. Pugsley, the mother of the dead woman, and her son, ap peared early in the courtroom, the young brother also wearing a band of crepe about his sleeve. He remained nil day, though ho sent his mother home at noon. Capt. J. D. Fredericks, district at torney, and Arthur Keetch, one of his assistants, are conducting the prose cution, most of the duty in that line having been performed so far by Mr. Keetch. It was apparent early In the trial that a long time would be needed to obtain a jury. Many possible Jurors were .called and excused for various reasons, until by early afternoon the first venire was exhausted. Only five of the necessary men are ready to hear the evidence. A new venire was Issued, being re turned late in the afternoon when the work of selecting Jurors was re sumed, with the prospect of it con tinuing well Into today. Flgueroa is accused of shooting his •wife to death at Santa Monica the night of May 22, only 24 hours after they had eloped to Santa Ana, where they were married without the knowl edge of her mother. On the night of the alleged murder, Mr. and Mrs. Figueroa are said to have been drink- Ing with J. H. Surber, an oil field em ploye, who afternard Is said to have accompanied them home. FINES 11 VIOLATORS OF DOG MUZZLING ORDINANCE Shape of Canine's Head Lightens Fine for One Owner Eleven more violator? of the flog muzzle ordinance appeared In police court yesterday. A lucky one was B. M smith of 314 West Sixty-first Btrei t, who got off by paying the- minimum fine. $1. Smith explained that he had tried every conceivable means of kee] ing the 'log muzzled, but "he always man aged to work it off. He's got a pecu liarly shaped head, your honor," he explained.

HOT DAY? NONE IS FROZEN TO DEATH Collars Wilt as Angelenos Trudge on Through 92-Degree Heat THE RAINFALL IS A BIG BLUFF Weather Man Rushes Out with Yardstick, but It's Too Late The man who had to postpone his suicide l»ri* — for i!« of an Icicle wherewith to jab himself was not MM only An- Relono who suf fered from the warm weather. A dozen persons in the city would have testified last night that at some time during the day they were irri tated by the heat. It was warm. Only a few very eccentric persons were to be seen with skates on. It was not only warm. The humid ity was humiliating. If it was not the humidity it was something else. Piano moveri and other active citizens com plained on every hand of something in the air that robbed existence of its charm. Breathing was hard. Most people, however, breathed the greater part of the day in spite of the diffi culty. In the morning an amateurish at tempt at rain was made, but someone got the hook and threw it into the storm at the beginning and stopped l^v©-' ■ ft the show. Not enough rain fell to make a mark on the rain slate at the weather office. The. deluge evaporated before the weather man could get the yardstick, so no authentic record can be kept of it. On July 14, ISB6, Los Angeles had a real, soaking .24 inch falling. On July 6. 18S7, there was another cloud burst, when .05 Inch poured down on the city. There have been three or four other showers In July in the last 100 years, but no record is held of any deaths by drowning. The weather ycaterday is said to hive been caused by a Sonora or summer storm that is performing just across the Mexican border line. With this apology the weather man will be almost forgiven, although it is Impos sible to put away resentment entirely. The official report of the weather magnatea sayi that at 12 o'clock yes ti rday the temperature was 80 and the humidity 82. At daylight the tem perature was near 71 «id the humidity S6. The maximum temperature for the day was 92. olutlona adopted by the Lovely Los Angeles league discountenance the desertion r,f Los Angeles and the emigration to Alaska vhich was talked of by tome of the village knockers yesterday. When seen late last even ins the'knockers had decided to^in dorse the resolutions. WELCOME EXTENDED TO DR.

CHURCH FACTIONS WAR AT REDONDO Newly Organized Christian Con gregation in Contention Over Preaching LETTER BRINGS A HOT REPLY Rev. L. H. Koepsel Refuses to Leave Pulpit and Also Charges 'Knocking' Difference! between members of the congregation of the Church of Christ, Redondo Beach, have iiroused so much bitterness that fifteen members are trying to oust the pastor, while forty are standing- by him. Tart correspond ence has been made public and an at tempt by the minority to persuade the Rev. L. H. Koepsel, the preacher In the case, to leave by paying him $50 has been indignantly spurned by the evangelist. The church Is of the Chris tian denomination. It was organized a few months ago. The Rev. Mr. Koepsel came from Missouri, where he had been engraved in evangelistic work for about' ten years. His coming to Redondo Beach resulted in the organization of the Church of Christ under the auspices of the missionary board of Christian churches of Southern California, and he was made paster. DISSEXSIOK STARTS The new pastor propounded his ortho dox beliefs In a manner that caused dissension in the church, when one memher wrote him a threatening let ter with the assertion that ho might be treated to a course of eggs not kept In cold storage if he did not desist from his orthodox ideas. It seems that the dissension has been increasing and fifteen of the members recently withdrew from the church, leaving the remainder of about forty of the original members. The paator wrote a letter to the missionary board regarding the position he held in the new church. The reply was sent to him •by the secretary of the board with qualifications detrimental to the continuance of his pastoral relation. But the remaining- forty are standing steadfast by the pastor. The secre tary of the board of directors of the church, Fred. Pfeifer, said yesterday that the remaining members would rule the church and retain the present pastor notwithstanding the opposition. The letter to the pastor from the secretary of the mission board fol lows: ' EMERBOVS I.KTTKR My dear Brother Koopsel: Tours of July 10 received. I presented it , to the board. I regret, personally, that any misunderstandings have arisen in regard to your work with us. I wanted to be your friend and encourage you in every way I pos sibly could. I have done nothing that I Intended to reflect on you in any way. but It seems that it was Impossible for you to understand things as I had hoped you would. I will be just as glad and willing to help you as I have been at all times. Concerning Redondo and Tngle wond matters, we had presented petitions asking- that we would not again send you back. Concerning the demand which you have made upon our board. So far as any financial obligation is concerned, not one of our board understood that we were Involved In any way. So far as any personal understanding which you may have had with Brother Shepherd Is con cerned, I suppose, of course, that you feel tnat that was authorita tive, while our board feels that there was really no financial obliga tlon In the matter, they do feel that because of your expectation, and perhaps the idea that Brother Shepherd, their secretary, had in regard to the work there, that there is a moral obligation Involved, and In the depleted state of our finances are perfectly willing to do whatever seems to be just and right In the. matter. I am authorized to say to you that we will send you a check for $50 on condition that you keep entirely out of both fields hereafter and that all relationship, either im plied or understood, with our board, shall come to an end. This proposi tion is absolute, and we mean by keeping out of the field to not even continue by correspondence the stirring up of strife and setting of the elements of the church against each other in Redondo. T trust that you will see your way clear for an immediate acceptance of the proposition and we will then make the remittance just as soon as we know your decision in the matter and the return of our treas urer makes it possible. Tours very fraternally, F. W. EMERSON, secretary. KOKPSEL'S TtKn.Y The Rev. Mr. Koepsel replied in a drastic manner, of which the following is a part: My dear sirs and brothers: A communication of July 13 has come Into my hands and I reply. Per sonally. I should keep silent, but for Christ's sake, reply. Tour secretary claims to be a "friend" of mine. He came to visit, but a "chronic knocker," did not have the manhood or courage to face me with an accusation that my preaching and practice was not in accordance with the customs of the so-called Christian churches. I am preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not the oral or written tra ditions of people. This adversary stealthily interviewed your secre tary. Tour secretary from that partisan representation condemned me and that adversary scattered the news about while I was work ing my physical limit to win men and women to Christ. Again your secretary sent word by the same adversary that he. the secretary, was in correspondence to send a man as successor to me. Tour secretary wrote a letter in which he definitely to the same "knocker" stated that as soon as I was or could be eliminated a suc cessor to mo would be found. This letter was read in v meeting while T was absent. Friendship, of course, dictates the butting in, in the friend's absence. At the same time that your secretary was writ ing me half complimentary letters, he was "writing the reverse to others. I have done everything openly. He says a petition came from both places, but he does not state his part In procuring them. If r am correctly informed, one contains the names of thirteen or sixteen persons. That is not forty two or forty-five. That meeting was a lawless one.

SWIMMER DIES AFTER AN ATTACK OF CRAMPS Salt Lake Employe Loses Life by Entering Water While Overheated Suffering from a shock, caused by going Into the water in an overheated condition, Charles Gates, 37 years old, an employe of the Salt Lake railroad at Otis station, was taken from a train yesterday morning and rushed to the California hospital, where he died at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Gates, in company with several other employes of the railroad, took a swim in a creek several miles from Otis Sunday afternoon. Gates was over heated at the time, and in a few min utes after ho,, had been In the water he was stricKTsn with cramps and be came unconscious. As he was going down for the third time he was noticed by his comrades, who rescued him and took him out of the water and onto tho bank of the stream. Oi*y after considerable time was he revived sufficiently to warrant his being taken to the railroad station and placed aboard a train for Los Angeles. He reached here yesterday morning and was hurried to the Cali fornia hospital and a fight made for his life, but without avail. Dr. Guy Cochran, physician for the Salt Lake, attended him. The body was removed to the un dertaking parlors of Cunningham & O'Connor after the coroner had been notified of his death. His relatives have not been located. LAW LEAGUE*IN* CONVENTION NARRAGANSETT PIER, R. 1., July 18.—Nearly 100 members of the legal fraternity from all sections of the coun try attended the opening meeting of the sixteenth annual convention of the Commercial Law league of America. Many social events have been arranged. GRAND JURY CONVENES NKWARK, Ohio, July 18.—The spe cial grand Jury called to investigate the lynching of Carl Ktherlngton, the anti saloon detective, convened today. METHODISTS HOLD BIG ENCAMPMENT Second Day Shows Great Inter est Manifested in Ser mons and Talks PRAYER MEETING AT SUNRISE Dr. Francis T. McConnell Delivers First of Series of After noon Lectures HUNTINGTON BEACH, July 18.— The second day of the Southern Cali fornia Methodist encampment was marked by sermons by Dr. Graeff of Hemet, formerly pastor at that place, and Bishop E. H. Hughes. A heavy shower fell during tho early morning hours and prevented most of the wor shipers from attending the sunrise prayer meeting. Dr. Graeff preached to the assembly at 10:30 a. m. on "The Mount of Trans figuration." He said that he believed in the immortality of both soul and body. As evidence of the immortality of the body he cited the appearance of Moses to* the disciples 1600 years after his death, and the appearance of Elias 9WI years after his death. As further evi dence of the immortality of this soul he said: "No one familiar with the Now Testament record can doubt the immortality of both soul and body. The Bible tells us in language that is unmistakable that Dives recognized Lazarus afar off, even though ho had been but a beggar here below. The disciples recognized Christ on each of his several appearances after his res urrection." Dr. Francis J. McConnell, president of De Pauw university, delivered the first of a series of ten afternoon lec tures on "The Christian Fundamen tals." Dr. McConnell is one of the leading philosophers and logicians of the world, and proposes to treat this subject from the philosophical stand point. His addresses promise to be of more than usual interest. The subject of his first address was "Religious Certainty." He said: "Religious certainty is not so much a matter of argument as of experience. I once prepared an article attempting to prove by a process of logical reason ing that 1 was the only person in existence. When I presented the case to a personal friend he said: 'What you say is conclusively proved by your logic. It is beyond question. I can not disprove it, but If you are the only person in existence, why mention the matter to me?' His point was that logic may be fla,wless and still of no value. Ho acknowledged the import ance of logical tests for religion, but said that after all the supreme test is the religious life. That which is itself false cannot produce truth." Bishop E. H. Hughes preached an able sermon at night, taking as hiii subject "Fear." He pointed out thai the worst enemy of Christianity was fear oa the part of Christians. Taking as his example Nlcodemus, who when in trouble came to Jesus by night. He sniil the men and women of the world today are afraid of the criticism of tho world, else they would be Christians. Jesus was not a popular leader at that day, and many who would otherwise have accepted his teachings would not come to him because of worldly crit icisms. Many people today are not Christians because of the same fear, but there is not in the whole state of California, not even in Northern Cali fornia, a man mean enough to make fun of one who comes to Christ by day. The world rejoices in a man who stands out boldly for Christ. Evangelist Smith took charge of the service, and several manifested an In- trrost In the prayer. He says he hopes not a meeting will pass durine the whole encampment without a conver sion. Two conversions were, reported from Sunday evenings service. Program for today Includes minrtao prayer mi-etlnß-, a sermon at 10:30 a. m. by Rev. Morris Bauphman of Klslnore, a second lecture by Dr. McConnoll mid a sermon by Bishop Hushes at night. The directors are J. L. Pltner, presi dent; H. E. Murkett, secretary; F. D. Mai her, treasurer; A. W. Adklnson, S. A. Thompson, G. B. Foster and J. C. Elliott.

BOTTLE MISSES WHISKY TENOR; STRIKES WIFE Father-in-Law Is Good Judge of Music but Proves to Be Poor Shot "I don't know whom I'm going, but I'm nn my way," Bang Milton Koark, as ho staggered into his home at 114S Temple street, whore he and his bride live with his wife's parents. Efforts were made to prevent Roark from disturbing his mother-in-law, who was sick in bed in an adjoining: room. Finally the Finger agreed to keep <|uiet. but evidently feH too happy to lot joy bo restrained and begun to sing "it looks to me like a big night tonight." By this time the patience of tho fathor-ln-law became exhausted and he roughly commanded the young man 1., destlt and KO to bed. This angered the disciple of Caruso and ho at tempted to put tho father-in-law to bed with the Rick woman. After a strenuous struggle Roark was ejected from the room and loft alone on tho front porch to sing to himself. This suited the young man for a short time, but he decided he was not having enough fun and forced an entrance to the room and began to annoy the sick woman by singing snatches of assorted ragtime. Finally, the father-in-law determined to put a stop to the one-sided enter tatnmpnt, and seizing a beer bottle he hurled it at the head of Roark. The missile flew wide of the mark and struck Mrs. Koark, the 18-year-old bride, full In the face, inflicting threo la. i rations on her upper lip and fore head. Tho police were notified, and hus band and wifo were taken to the cen tral police station. Mrs. Roark was treated at the receiving hospital and sent homo, but Roark was locked up in tho olty jail. As he was being placed in the tanks he declared that ten drinks of the whisky he had purchased would qualify any person for a posi tion as leading man in a grand opera company.
