News of the Courts WOMAN HALTS SALE OF DELINQUENT OIL STOCK Charges Unlawful Acts to Com pany's Directors and Gets Injunction Rosabelle H. Graves yesterday ob tained at the hands of Judge Moss, acting presiding Judge of the superior court, an Injunction restraining B. E. Bach, Joseph S. Rittlgsteln, Warren Gillelen, H. D. Vanderveer, W. C. El derton, W. W. Peddler and George Renwick and the Los Angeles-Coa linga Oil company from selling delin quent stock Sept. 12, as planned. The plaintiff alleges that she, as a stockholder, objects to what she be lieves are unlawful acts upon the part of the defendants, who are directors of the concern. She asserts they have held Illegal meetings, away from the principal place of business, and with fewer directors present than are re quired by the by-laws. She objects to assessments being made upon the stock, she says, when she believes that the board of direc tors gave two of its members, Ped der and Elderton, $750 as a bonus for obtaining the lease of oil lands, and ■when she thinks that Gillelen has stock valued at $1000 for which he has not paid. When she found that the stock was to be assessed anew to pay expenses and the delinquent shares to be sold Sept. 12, she asserts she did all in her power to prevent such actions, thinking them unnecessary if Elderton, Pedder and Gillelen would pay Into the treasury what she thinks they owe it. She obtained the Injunction. An ac counting when the case goes to trial Is asked.

On this occasion, the conductor de manded that Cook pay his fare, mak ing his intention of not accepting the ticket torn from the book by Cook well known. Cook did not want to pay twfee and his reluctance, he avers, re sulted in the conductor "kicking him In savage and brutal rage," giving him a black eye and throwing him from the car, to his groat physical discomfort.

Municipal Affairs FAVORS CITY ENGINEER CONTROLLING OIL TESTS Criticism of Petroleum Inspector Causes Plan to Consoli date Departments In a letter to the board of public works W. H. Humphreys, inspector of public works, suggests that it prob-1 ably would be advantageous if the de-1 partment of oil inspection was placed j under the control of the city engineer's j department. Mr. Humphreys' letter j Is In response to some criticisms that have been made concerning the depart ment of oil inspection, and especially C. A. Blackmar, the oil inspector. When these criticisms were made | concerning Mr. Blackmar, he asked the department of public works if his de partment had been of value to the department of public works, and Mr. Humphreys replied that it has. Mr. Humphreys says: "If it were not for the tests that are made, foreign Ingredients in excess quantities would undoubtedly be lur ii is net! us on this work. "There is a certain phase of the oil testing, however, which I feel we should consider at this time. "In the department of oil inspection we are maintaining a laboratory with an inspector and his assistants, In which laboratory, as I understand, lu bricating oil and the various petroleum products are tested, and under which department a certain police surveillance is exercised over petroleum operations. "The city is also maintaining a lab oratory, with one assistant, under the city engineering department. The line of work conducted by these two de partments is along such similar lines that it appears they should be com bined Into one department. The city would undoubtedly save money in mak ing this consolidation, and there is no reason why the efficiency of the serv ice could not be maintained. WORK IS NECBSSAKV "We have, as yet, much to learn about road building, particularly the use of petroleum products In road con struction. This is made apparent to us when men who are making a life study of this work differ so in their Ideas of construction and aro responsible for some very pronounced mistakes. To that end, our engineering department in making tests of the asphalts and oils which go into the construction of our streets and in watching the results ac complished is not only able to deter mine the quality of the material fur nished, but also to make a material advancement in our street construe- tion. "You will recollect that a few years ago our asphalt streets did not com pare with those which are being laid at the present time. I believe we have the best asphalt streets to be found anywhere. This point, of being able to watch and follow up the results of certain mixtures is of material value to our city. Thera/ore, I feel that it would be a mistake to take this in vestigation out of the hands of the city engineer and carry out the idea pre viously suggested, that all oil investi gation should be under one depart ment, I would recommend that the en gineering department be given full charge of the testing of all oil and petroleum products. '•To this I would make one excep tion—that is, that some of the oils used along the line of the aqueduct and which require only a simple test to de termine their values, which can and is now being done at the cement plant at Monolith, be placed under the en gineer's department only incidentally. IXVESTIUATE AT LABORATORY Councilmen Betkouskl, Whiffen and Stewart visited the laboratory of Oil Inspector Blackmar yesterday morning and Investigated the books of the de partment. During the investigation it developed that one of Betkouski's com plaints againct the oil inspector is that he docs work for others than the city, although drawin™ a monthly salary of $175 from the city. Mr. Blackmar him self brought up the subject and stated that he had prepared.oil specifications for every state in the country and had even worked for the Japanese govern ment, but he declared he was justified in doing work for others because he did it outside regular office hours. He declared that he did some of this out side work in the city's laboratory, but that ho had a right to use the labora tory for personal purposes, as a largo part of the apparatus belonged to him personally and he used it for the city s Benefit. __-__», HAMBURGER TO RECEIVE STEAM HEAT FRANCHISE M A Hamburger was yesterday as sured bj President Lusk of the city council that the council will pass the notice of sale for the steam heating franchise lie ask* next Tuesday. Mr. Hamburger's application for this fran chise ha« been before the council for several months, hut there has been Home opposition to it and long delays have occurred in committee:-'. He wants what will probably be the shortest franchise in the city. His plan i to connect the Hamburger d part si ;■■ with the Hamburger Ma i tic theater by a pipe line so the theater may be furnished heat from the larger building. The council was disposed to adopt t c notice of sale of the franchise yes terday, but a small point had been overlooked in the ordinance and it was returned to the legislative committee for correction. There seems to be no doubt that it will be paastd. FIREMAN BELL INSISTS ON COMMISSION TRIAL C. P. Bell, a fireman of engine com pany No. 14. has been ckrd'to ap pear before the tin commission at its session next Thursday morning to ■horn cause why he should not be dis -1 from the service for Immoral conduct. The commission held an executive session for nearly an hour yesterday morning with Bell and tried to con vince him that it was better for him to resign than have a public trial be-. cruise of the nature of the evidence against him, but he would not ecu to leave. MANCHESTER FARE REDUCTION Five-cent fares to Manchester ave nue «iii be granted by the Log Angeles X Kidondo road not later than Jaim ary 1 according to a report mail,' to the council yesterday by Councilman O'Brien. Mr. O'Brien is chairman of a special committee appointed to Investl (hp matter of street car fares In the southern part of the city PROTEST AGAINST CAR BARNS IN NEIGHBORHOOD Opposition to Proposed Buildings on Santa Barbara Avenue Protesting against th<- construction of car barns on Santa Barbara avenue. Just south of Agricultural park, a big crowd of Interested persons appe:uvil before the public welfare committee yesterday afternoon. The protestants want the land on which It is proposed to build the barns added to the park. The Los Angeles railway officials promised they would build a handsome concrete structure on the land that would not be an eyesore, even if it waa to be used for housing cars. The committee did not come to any decision yesterday but intimated that it probably would recommend that the property owners secure a petition signed by at least 25 per cent of the j property owners in the proposed as sessment district and then steps would be taken to condemn the land and add It to the park. GETS $3750 JUDGMENT AGAINST PSYCHOLOGIST Dr. Price Must Pay Commission for Sale of Stocks George H. Walker, who filed a suit against Dr. W. R. Price, mining stock promoter and psychologist of- Long ] Beach, for $5109.50 as commission for I the sale of stock, yesterday wai given a Judgment for $3750 by Judge Moss, of the superior court. Walker alleged that he sold 9062 shares of stock in the National Gold Dredging company for $1 a snare, for which transaction he wanted a com mission of $3624.80. He also declared that at the request of that concern he had sold 5938 shares at the same price and that the company had given to Price to turn over to the plaintiff in payment, $1454.5fi. He averred that he frequently had made demand upon the psychologist for both sums but had al ways been refused. MISSING LINK TO BE ON EXHIBITION HERE Charles I, a Chimpanzee, Feature of Barnum & Bailey Circus The greatest bicycle rider and acro bat In the world Is nothing but a chim panzee. His name in Charlie the First and he is easily the star of the 400 artists with the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth. He seems to have all the divine gifts of man—of course, excepting the power of speech. Darwin said there was a missing link in the chain that connects man with the lower animals. The scientists of today have asked Charlie the First to move up from the foot of his class and take the vacancy. In 1903 a party of scientists found Charlie the First in the forest that hugs the equator in Africa. He did not run from them, as would be sup posed. Instead he walked confidently up to one of the party and offered him an armload of cocoanuts. When the scientists pushed on the animal fol lowed, first running into the thicket and bringing along with htm a crude mattress, woven from barks and moss. Charlie marched with the party for days. Seeing the negro servants carry ing water and fuel at meal times he helped them. As an experiment the scientists placed the animal In the care of the skipper of a tramp steamer, where he learned without coaching to wash dishes and keep the deck clean. On his return to London, eight months later, one of the party, a Dr. Buchanan, took the animal with him and there began to prepare him for an exhibit. The animal learned rapidly. He learned more by his desire to imitate than by being urged to his tasks. The idea of exhibiting Charlie the First with a circus did not occur to the doctor until one day he discovered that the animal could ride his bicyc)o. Scientists and doctors began to come lung distances tn see the chimpanzee which had lioen described as the missing link. Among those to take an Interest in the won derful erratum were the king of Eng land, Emperor William and Alfonso of Bpain. There was but one opinion— Charlie the First was the missing por tion of the Darwinian chain. The London agent of the Barnum & Bailey ciheus induce! Dr. Buchanan to bring the animal to America, and it will be seen in Los Angeles on Tues day and Wednesday. September 20 and 21. as one of the features with the bis show. Everything Charlie the First does proves him moie human than ani mal. He has chosen the clothing and the habits of a man. He dines with the use of a full table equipment. He sleeps in a bed and carries a watch. In privates llfo he Is amiable and ap preciative. He plays on the piano, pitches horseshoes and plays billiards. His keeper is merely the janitor of his littte house, for Charlie the First gews on his own buttons and shines h!a shoes. As a performer he excels man. He is an accomplished bareback rider, a skillful trapeze artist, a fin ished high-wire walker, a clever jug pier, a splendid acrobat and -a funny clown. On orw of the stu;res he presents c liiey.-lo act he created himself. Mere instinct could not evolve such skill. Anyone who rides i bicycle knows It requires the judgment and reason of human intelligence to learn. Yet this xeature i;; ■ greater rider than any man ever seen with a circus. Here ■< •••• the proofs that Charlie the First possesses a divinity of mind far in excess of nature's intent. FORMER CONVICT ARRESTED FOR PASSING BAD CHECKS VALLKJO, Sept. L.George W. Kelly, recently released from the state prison at Folsom, \vhr>re he had served time for having passed fictitious checks in Benlcla, has been held to answer be fore the superior court for a similar offense, alleged to have been committed hero last Saturday.

NEW TAX ON PENNY ARCADES Penny arcades will have to contrib ute largely to the city's revenue.

REGAINS WIFE HE LOST DURING WAR'S TURMOIL Extraordinary Reunion Dating Rearward to Civil War Times Reported in Ohio KENT, Ohio, Sept. I.—As quaint a romance as was ever written in fic tion has found its equal here In real life. Philip Carr has been married to the wife he lost in the turmoil of the Civil war nearly a half century ago, and is enjoying with her his second honeymoon. They were married a few days ago, but it was only yesterday that the facts became known as :o their life history. Separated by raiding- guerillas who captured the federal malls; divorced because of a believed desertion, each remarried and each again widowed, they found the love of their youth still aflame on an accidental meeting not long since and their new betrothal followed at once. Carr Is now 74 years old and his wife is sixty Xght. It was In 1862 that Carr, respond ing to Lincoln's second call for troops, marched to the front, leaving his bride of a year and his infant daughter be hind. Some months later, when remit tances stopped, she was Induced to r>p ply for a divorce on the grounds of desertion. Later she remarried and went east. When Carr returned from the war hi* bride was missing and he learned of the divorce. Stung to the quick, he, too, married another. Many years int er her second husband and his s.-ronl wife died. Recently he returned to fne Bceneß of his boyhood and here ~ie mat the "girl he left behind him" in the days of '62. Ho explained how the mails had been raided and the letters, written with the stub of a pencil in the Tennessee trenches, stolen with hl% slender savings from his soldier i;ay.
