SILVERWOOD 221 south spring LOS Angeles Sixth and Broadway Bakersfleld Long Beach san Bernardino Maricopa | - SALOONKEEPER'S CHURCH BUILT TO SPITE RIVAL Liquor Men Fall Out and Mission Band Reaps the Benefit of Conflict NEW TORK, Sept. 19—New Tork has a "spite" church, erected. it is said, as the result of the business rivalry of two saloon keepers ln the Bronx. The church, a little wooden build ing, was opened for worship yesterday with a congregation of thirty persons. For some time the liquor trade in the neighborhood has been divided be tween two saloon keepers whose busi ness rivalry has been keen. There is a state law which forbids the keeping of a saloon within 200 feet of a church. One of the saloon keepers, it ls said, decided there could be no more effec tive way of putting a rival out of business than building a church near enough to him to compel him to clone up when his license ran out. The property on which the new con gregation will pray belongs to the sa loon keeper and was donated byhim for the purpose. The other liquor 'man asserts the church was plainly erect ed to force him out of business and he Is angry. He declares he will retaliate by taking steps to build another church on property owned by a rela tive within 200 feet of his rival's door. The result may be that both men will be forced out of business. The mission authorities In charge of the new house of worship decline to be drawn Into the controversy. "We shall conduct the church along ; our regular lines," said the pastor, "without thought of any controversies j with which we have nothing to do." i DEFECT IN INFORMATION DELAYS DR. MARTIN CASE Lawyers Score a Partial Victory for Fresno Physician I FRESNO, Sept. 10.—Dr. J. L. Martin, accused of having caused the death of his wife in this city beoauso of neglect, scored a victory ln the su i perior court before Judge Church to [ day, when the information ln his case i was set aside and the demurrer sub mitted in his behalf by Attorneys I Everts and Ewing was sustained. The action of the court was taken on the ground that the Information which was drawn up by Police Judge Briggs, before whom the preliminary examination was held, was not suffi ciently strong In Its legal verbiage to warrant the defendant being brought to trial. Deputy District Attorney McCormick, on whose motion the court set aside the complaint, stated that he consid ered the demurrer of the defense valid, and this afternoon will have Judge Briggs submit another and moro com plete Information. The bonds of Dr. Martin, under which he Is at liberty, will stand the same as they did before today's de velopments. BECKER IN SAN JOSE JAIL SAN' JOSE.

IDS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING' SEPTEMBER 20, 1910. CRIPPEN'S FAILURE TO WED CRUSHES SPIRIT OF TYPIST Sensational Evidence Adduced at Inquest into Death of Belle Elmore LANDLADY TELLS THE STORY Noted Pathologist Believes Body Found in Doctor's House Was That of Female [Associated Press] LONDON, Sept. 19.— Something of what Ethel Claire Leneve felt as she. awaited the fulfillment of Dr. Hawley Crippen's promise to make her his wife was revealed at today's session of the , inquest Into the death of Belle El more, for the murder of whom the doc tor and his typist are Jointly charged. In her distress Miss 'Geneve con fided in. her landlady, Mrs. Jackson, and the story that the latter told on the witness stand rivaled the most sen sational evidence Introduced at . the preliminary trial. Mrs. Jackson said that the accused girl gave up the room which she had occupied at the home of the witness, March 12, explaining that she was leaving to be married to Dr. Crippen. • Until the first week in February Miss Leneve had slept regularly at Mrs. Jackson's. After that she stopped at the house only occasionally. She said she passed the other nights at the home of friends. On one occa sion Miss Leneve mentioned having been at the HUldrop Crescent home of the Crippens, early In February, to help the doctor in a search for a bank ,book which showed an account of $1000. She added that a diamond tiara and rings had been found in the house and that the doctor had raised SJSSO on these. MISS U2>'EVte DEPRESSES* About the middle of February, the witness said, Miss Leneve appeared miserable and depressed. Such was her state that Mrs. Jackson followed the girl to her room to learn, if pos sible, the source of her trouble. Miss Leneve, the witness said, was in a terrifying state of agitation. Her eyes seemed fairly starting out of her head. The landlady insisted on an explana tion, telling the girl she must have something awful on her mind to be in such a condition. The witness said that the other replied: "Would you be surprised if I told you that it was the doctor and Miss Elmore? He was the cause of my trou ble when you flrst knew. She is his wife and when I see them go away together it makes me realize my posi tion as to what she is and what I am." Kirs. Jackson asked: "What is the use of you worrying about another woman's husband?" To this Miss Leneve answered: "Miss Elmore has been threatening to go away with another man. Dr. Crippen has been waiting for her to do so, when he would divorce her." Solicitor Newton, who is looking out for the interests of Crippen and Miss Leneve, closely cross-examined Mrs. Jackson, suggesting that her lodger's excitement was due to the landlady having resurrected a trouble which the girl experienced during her earlier association' with Crippen, but the wit ness maintained the correctness of her evidence as given. THINK* BODY A FEMALE Prof. Pepper, the pathologist, re peated the testimony which he had given at the trial ln the Bow street court. In response to questions by the coroner he said: "I have formed a very strong opin ion that the parts were those of a female. If I take the hair discovered into consideration there is a strong presumption, almost conclusive evi dence, that the parts were those of a female." A Juror was very anxious to know why a Scotland Yard man had allowed the doctor to get away once he had fallen under suspicion. Dew re sponded that he had a. perfect answer to the attacks that had been made upon him and he would like to reply to the question, but the coroner would not permit him to do so, declaring that the subject of Crippen's flight was "outside the scope of the present in quiry." The Inquest was then adjourned un til September 26. MYRON WHITNEY, FAMOUS CONCERT SINGER, IS DEAD Soloist of Half Century to Rest Near Joseph Jefferson SANDWICH, Mass., Sept.

SENTENCES HEIKE FOR SUGAR FRAUD Judge Sends Former Trust Sec retary to Blackwell's Island for Eight Months A FINE OF $5000 IS IMPOSED Additional Chapter Now Closed in Scandal Caused by Under ; weighing of Cargoes ■(Associates Press) NEW YORK, Sept. Charles R. Heike, former secretary and treasurer of the American Sugar Refining com pany, who has been called the "man higher up" in the sugar trust, was sentenced ' today by Judge Martin in the United States circuit court to serve eight months in the New York peni tentiary on Blackwell's Island and pay a line of $5000, on conviction of having conspired to defraud the United States government by underwelghing of sugar. In imposing sentence, Judge Martin said that as Heiko had been convicted on only one count of the indictment charging him with aiding the conspir acy, instead of all six counts, as the other defendants had been, and taking Heike's age (66 years) and his accus tomed mode of life into consideration, he would be Inclined to .suspend sen tence altogether. But as punishment must be inflicted as an -example, he could not follow his personal Inclina tion, Judge Martin added,' and ho therefore added the eight months' prison sentence to the $5000 fine. Judge Martin granted a stay of exe cution of tho sentence pending an ap peal to the United States circuit court of appeals. The court also reduced Heike's ball, which had been $25,000, pending sentence since his conviction last June, to $16,000.. ■ CONSPIRACY BY WEIGIIEJta Heike's sentence is the culminating point in the federal government's pros ecution of American Sugar Refining company officials and employes, grow ing out of the extensive underwetgh ing frauds on the Williamsburg docks of the trust, brought to light by Rich ard Parr's famous raid on the docks in 1907. Four weighers of the com pany and Oliver Spitzer. their dock boss, were convicted ln the flrst crim inal trial in connection with the frauds, and the weighers are still serving out their sentence of a year in the Black well's island penitentiary. Spitzer, who was sentenced to two years in the Atlanta penitentiary, was pardoned during the trial of Heike, Ernest W. Gerbracht, the refinery su perintendent, and four minor employes of the company, for conspiracy. He turned state's evidence and his testi mony played an Important part in, the conviction of Heike, Oerbracht and the checkers. IMMUNITY PLEA FAILS The sugar company, meanwhile, had returned to the government more than $2,000,000 out of which, it was shown, the customs had been defrauded by the underwelghlng operations. Heike's case was a long time coming to trial, as he first pleaded immunity because of the testimony which he had given before the federal grand Jury in an other sugar company proceeding. His plea was overruled by the supreme court of the United States. Gerbracht was sentenced last week to two years in the Atlanta penitentiary and to pay a fine of $5000, but was allowed a stay pending appeal. - ■ - SENIOR WILL BE TRIED FOR RUNAWAY MARRIAGE Mrs. Schwarzaur Fears Whittier and Attemps Suicide SAN DIEGO, Sept. 19.— the out come of a hasty marriage and an elopement immediately afterward, George W.

FLEETS HAVE INSURANCE VALUE, SAYS 808 EVANS Asserts Armada of 100 Ships Would Be Cheap SEATTLE, Sept. 19.—Rear Admiral Tvans, retired, arrived in Seattle last night. Replying to the criticism of the expense of a large fleet of warships in the Pacific, Admiral Evans asserted that as an insurance feature alone It would pay the government. "It has been figured." said he, "that the cost of a fleet of 100 battleships would not exceed one-tenth of one per cent of the property within reach of twelve-Inch guns on the Atlantic coast." , As demonstrating the Insurance value of battleships, he pointed opt that at the beginning of the Spanish-American war property along the Atlantic coast depreciated in value, and houses ex posed to the sea could not be rented at any price. . , , I • _ Even after the Panama canal is com pleted' the government should keep a permanent fleet on the Pacific coast. He Insists the hazard of ships passing through the canal during a war would be too great to risk the entire fleet on i the Atlantic coast.
