INDICTMENTS IN
DYNAMITING CASE
PUZZLE TO JURY
Question That Split Times Legal
Forces Now Confronts
County Probers
CALLING WITNESSES DELAYED
Officials Can't Decide Whether to
Accuse Accessories Before
Catching Principals
With the Brand jury investigation
into the Times disaster only two days
old, ;i big question is already looming
before the Inquisitor* concerning pos
sible Indictments. From the general
trend of the two days' proceeding! it
is becoming evident that the dynamite
theory is to be accepted by the jury as
the eiiuso of the explosion. In fact, the
matter of the time of calling the San
Francisco witnesses to testify regard-
Ing tlio trail left by dynamite suspects
was discussed yesterday. And in this
connection arose the question concern
ing indictments, a question that has al
ready split tho legal force! connected
With the case fur apart.
The question hinges on tho point as
to whether, with the principals to the
explosion uncaught, it woukl bo wlso
to lntroduco before the jury a lino of
evidence calculated to Involve acces
sorles, Chief of Police Poymour of
Ban FranolßCO has informed the local
authorities that he would consider such
a handling of the caso as simply ri
diculous, lie declares that the convic
tion of an nccessory without first ar
resting a principal would be impossi
ble and has mado strenuous protest
against detailing his men to ferret out
wilnesses to be used before the grand
Jury In an attempt to involve others
than the suspects already sought. In
this stand Beymour is backed by at
least one of the legal authorities In the
case and It is the basis of the exist
ing clash between Seymour and Rog
ers.
r.WSF. OF THE DELAY
Around the matter centers the pres
ent delay in serving subpoenas on
many of the San Francisco witnesses,
iind because of it the grand Jury is
"making haste slowly" in the process
(if Its investigation. The Jury was ad
journed yesterday afternoon until 10
o'clock Monday morning, but it was
announced that further local witnesses
would be called at that time. As for
the San Francisco witnesses, they will
certainly not be brought down here
before. Tuesday or Wednesday of next
week and even then It is improbable
that witnesses regarded as possible ac
cessories will be among their number.
If such witnesses are examined at all
they will be among the last to appear
before the grand Jury.
At yesterday's session of the grand
jury two new witnesses gave strong
testimony pointing to dynamite being
the cause of tho explosion. The first
of these witnesses was E. Nashold, a
"mining man from Kern county who
claims to be an expert regarding ex
plosions and who declared that he
witnessed the Times explosion and
that it was undoubtedly duo to dyna
mite.
TORE 1101..E IN HOOF
Nashold declared that lie was in his
room on an upper floor of the Nadeau
hotel preparing to go to bed when he
heard the explosion. He says that he
looked out and saw a great hole torn
In the roof of the Times building and
that through this hole came a burst
of flames and smoke. The witness
claims that both the sound and tho
force of the explosion were similar to
that of dynamite. He said that he had
been superintendent of constructiion
Jn building the South Park railroad
Into Leadville and that he had used all
types of high power explosives in this
work. He gave it as his positive ex
pert opinion that the explosion was not
due to gas and was due to dynamite.
Dr. Julius Koebig, an analytical
chemist, was another expert witness
who declared th# explosion was due
to dynamite. Dr. Koebig declared that
he had made an examination of the
Times debris, had found strong- evi
dence of a dynamite explosion and had
even located the source of it in the
ruins of "ink alley," about thirty-five
feet from Broadway.
FINDS TRACES OF DYNAMITK
Dr. Koebig described the tests he <
had made to discover what had caused
the explosion, and mentioned the dis
covery of Infusorial earth such as is
loft by a dynamite explosion. He had
diagrams of the Times ruins and indi
cated with them how the force of the
explosion was dlrectetd and gave de
tailed data as to the phenomena con
nected with It. ■ ;
William Mulholland, chief engineer of
the aqueduct, was recalled as a wit
ness and gave further evidence as to
the Investigation made by the commit
tee appointed by Mayor Alexander. He
said that all of the evidence found by
the committee pointed to dynamite as
the cause of the explosion.
The following- members of the Inves
tigating committee were also present
to testify but were excused until Mon
day: Gen. O. J. Sweet, IT. S. A. (re
tired): J. S. Carman, E. H. Fosdiek
and Charles Wellborn.
John P. Krempel, the architect who
designed the Times building, brought
plans and specifications of the struc
ture to the jury and explained in de
tail what the resisting power of the
walls amounted to.
The work of Identifying those "who
met death in the disaster was complet
ed yesterday by the testimony of Mrs.
John Howard, her son and daughter re
garding John Howard; William Was
son regarding his brother, Edward
Wasson; George M. Prink regarding
his son, Elmer Prink, and H. T. Mor
ris regarding his cousin, W. O. Turn
bull.
.Mlllilv LOCAL WITNESSES ,
At the conclusion of the session yes
terday afternoon it was anounced that
more local witnesses regarding the ox
plosion would be called on Monday.
. Among the first of the San Francisco
witnesses who will be called to testify
next week will be Mrs. Belle Lavln,
the woman now held in the county jail
here on a charge of murder in connec
tion with the Times explosion. Mrs.
Lavln will probably testify directly aft

RAILWAY ACTION

Governor of Kansas Makes Vigor
ous Protest at Interstate

CONSTRUCTION RISKS TRIVIAL
Executive Offers a Million Dollar
Bond That He Can Disprove
Corporation Claims
(Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Oct. 28.—Presentation of
evidence by the shippers who are op
posing the proposed advance in frelgnt
rates was concluded today before the
interstate commerce commission with
the testimony of Governor fj/. K.
Stubbs of Kansas, who in character
istic manner declared his opposition to
an increase in rates and his belief as
a practical builder of railroads that
valuations have been placed too high.
"I'll put up a million dollar bond,"
said the governor, "that I can con
struct a main line railroad in Kansas,
an up to date line, too, for W!>,000 a
mile, and make 10 per cent profit on
the Job."
The lowest estimate of railroad
building offered by the railroads more
than doubled the governor's estimate.
KAII.ItOAI) 8111-DING "EASY"
At one point in the cross examina
tion by Attorney T. J. Norton of tho
Santa Fo Governor Stubbs declared:
"Now let me tell you something.
There is not as much risk in building
a railroad in a good territory as in
starting a bank. Ido not think the
railroads need preferential rates. They
can make money as they are, and they
should be run on the same business
basis as a bank."
"Don't you think, governor," asked
the attorney, "that the Santa Fe road
is .entitled to the increased value of
its properties in Kansas? You do not
deny to the Kansas farmer the ad
vance in the price of his land?"
"Yes," quickly rejoined Governor
Stubbs, rising from his chair and em
phasizing his words by pounding on
the judge's bench, "but that land is
worth more because of the honest la
bor of the men, women and children
on every quarter section of Kansas
land, and the stock values of the rail
road holdings have been juggled and
inflated, and I do not know how much
water there is In it."
TAKKS ISSIE WITH KII-I.EY
Governor Stubbs repeatedly referred
to the position taken by President
Ripley of the Santa Fe that market
quotations of. railroad stock was a fair
criterion of property values.
Later in the cross-examination Gov
ernor Stubbs again stood up and punc
tuating his woras with blows on the
bench beside him, said:
"The railroads ought to be allowed
to make 5 or 6 per cent on their actual
investment and also lay aside a nice
surplus for emergency use. But they
ought not to invest this emergency
surplus from time to time in permanent
improvements and then add it to the
capitalization. Every business man
ought to have a surplus for a rainy
day and the railroads should, too."
Continuing on this line, he said:
"I do not think that $25,000,000 Is too
great an amount for the Santa Fe as
an emergency fund for a bad year or
a washout. But keep that fund sepa
rate and do not capitalize It.
"Now, let me tell you," he added
emphatically, "the people will be
pleased to pay the railroads liberal re
turns on their actual investment if you
will only stop your stock juggling."
In a lull in the examination Gov
ernor Stubbs leaned forward and said
to the railroad attorney examining
him:
"You've asked me a lot of questions.
Now let me ask you one. What was
the basis of the Santa Fe issue of
$102,000,000 of stock In 1896, when the
roads were consolidated; was that on
the actual valuation of the road?"
Auditor Bailey of the Santa Fo sys
tem answered that the stock was is
sued and exchanged for the old stock
and bonds held by the. stockholders of
the road.

Which Were Given to Sheriff Hammel Yesterday

PARIS POLICE DOGS
GIFTS TO HAMMEL
Sheriff Receives Bloodhounds
Used to Trail Apaches of
French Capital
Two valuable police dogs from Ber
lin, which trailed several of the
Apaches of Paris to their lairs ami
were instrumental In the capture of
some of the most notorious criminals
in Europe, arrived in Los Angeles yes
terday as a gift to Sheriff Hammel
from a friend. The sheriff declined to
give the name of the donor.
The dogs arj lithe, wiry little fellows,
each about the size of a wolf and pos
sessed of great strength. Their hair is
black, coarse and stiff. Their eyes are
small and their noses pointed. It is
said they possess a keener scent and
greater courage than the bloodhounds
of the southern states. They are fer
ocious on the trail and scarcely can
be handled by their masters when tak
ing the scent. One of their character
istics is the teeth which are sharp and
pointed like a wolf's.
Blackle and Nora are the names of
the dogs. Their pedigree dates back
many generations of dogdom is the
service of the European police. They
were born in Berlin but trained in
Paris. In the French metropolis they
were used with a pack of police dogs
to run down the Apaches several years
ago, when their depredations were ter
rorizing that city. It is said they are
valued at $1500 each.
Blackle and Nora have been ruled
with an iron hand. They know only
brute force as power. A kind word
or an attempt at familiarity elicits
only the display of two rows of keen
edged teeth fashioned into sword
points.
The dogs eat only raw meat and
toasted bread soaked in water. They
sleep during the day and prowl at
night. They prefer the dark corners
of their cage to the light. George Gal
lagher, jailer, is the only man who has
made friends with them so far.
The dogs were lodged in the county
building yesterday with the utmost
secrecy but their sharp, wolf-like cries
attracted attention. George Clark, a
negro janitor in the building, who was
not aware that the man hunters were
in the basement, went downstairs yes
terday afternoon in search of a broom
he had left there the day previous and
emerged from the basement minus a
portion of his tapuaeri. Sheriff Ham
mel agreed to reimburse George for his
loss providing he would feed them dally,
but Clark will not take the sheriff's
proposition under consideration.

TELLS FREDERICKS
MAKE BLUFF GOOD
Schiffman Wires: 'I Have Been
Waiting All Morning to
Be Arrested'
Glendora, Cal., Oct. 28. ,
John D. Fredericks,
District Attorney,
Los Angeles.
Have waited here all morn
ing for your deputy sheriff with
warrant. Unless you want, to
go down into history as a four
flusher, make your bluff good.
Fred C. Schiffman.
John D. Fredericks, district attor
ney, is still hearing from Qlendbra.
yesterday Fred C. Schiffman, who was
threatened with arrest by Fredericks
Thursday night when he questioned
the district attorney, sent a tart tele
gram to the prosecutor calling on him
to make his bluff good.
Apparently Fredericks had no inten
tion of causing Sehiffman's arrest, for
lie made no move in that direction
yesterday. Seemingly he was trying
to convert the unexpected reception at
Glendora into a "closed Incident," for,
according to authentic reports from
that place, his departure was marked
by loneliness and the laughter of a
crowd gathered in the street.
Fredericks did attempt to arrest Mr.
Schiffman Thursday night, but when
challenged to bring Schiffman to Los
Angeles, he lost his nerve. Schiffman,
it is stated, had paid the hall rent so
that Fredericks would have a place to
speak. When he asked the speaker em
barrassing questions, however. Freder
icks lost his temper and attempted to
arrest him. as related exclusively In
The Herald yesterday.
The Glendora meeting probably was
the most exciting that Fredericks had
participated in during the campaign.
Many of the quetslons hurled at him
by Thomas Lee Woolvvine were taken
up by his auditors, who wanted to
know what he had to say. He lost bis
temper, and the meeting narrowly es
caped transformation into a rough and
tumble fight between the angry prose
cutor and his questioner, toward whom
he advanced menacingly until others
interfered.

JOHNSTONE SAVED
BY TRICK OF WIND
Aviator Despairs of Life After
Going Up 8471 Feet
in a Gale
NEW YORK, Oct. 28.—The crowd at
Belmont Park today was all for Ralph
Johnstone, when from Middle Island
village, L. 1., fifty-five miles off the
course, he brought back a new Amer
ican record of 8471 feet for altitude—
the second he has added to his string
in the international meet.
"Tell you what, boys," Johnstone
said when he landed, "it was just the
mercy of Providence that saved my
neck. When I Thought I was within
touching distance of the new world's
record I kind of forgot all about the
wind and began to reach out for more
height. Then I suddenly said to my
self, 'young man, you better see how
much gas you have got.' It's the truth,
I had just enough to turn over the two
propellers. When I kept her nose up
the juice ran down into the engine
and she coughed. The minute I pointed
down I lost my fuel and she began
to miss.
"I was not much scared until I got
down to earth and saw what a gale
there was. Then I was frightened for
fair.
"While I was tossing pennies with
myself the wind turned me dean
around and landed me front end back
wards, but that was just what saved
me. If I'd come down head first the
wind would have picked me up, tipped
me over and smashed me to pieces."
What fluttered the hangars far more
today than Johnstone's narrative,
though, was the selection by the Aero
Club of America of an American team
to defend the Gordon Bennett lnterJ
national speed trophy. Hamilton, with
his 110-horsepo\vi>r "Hamiltonian;"
Drexel, with a 50-horsepower Bleriot,
and Brookins, in the new Wright racer,
were named by election.
The substitutes are Mars of the Cur
tiss team, Molssant with a Bleriot and
Hoxsey of the Wright team.
The French team consists of Latham
with a 100 horse power Antoinette, Le
Blanc with a 100 horse power Bleriot,
.Vulirun with a 50 horse power Bleriot
and Simon and Harrier each with a 60

Eight long speeches, seven of them
in the open air, and a mad dash,
through the orange belt in an automo
bile taxed the endurance of Theodore
A. Bell yesterday. But he recuperates
rapidly and will be fit for a turn
around the kite shaped track today,
when he will make seventeen short
speeches.
The two meetings with which he
wound up the day's campaigning, one
at San Pedro and one at Long Beach,
brought out more than 3000 people to
hear his promises of clean government.
At San Pedro, where fully 1500 people
heard him speak in the open air, citi
zens said it was the largest crowd that
had ever gathered In the harbor city
at a political rally, and far surpassed
the audiences the Republican candi
dates have had.
At San Pedro Bell spoke at Sixth
and Palos Verdes streets from a plat
form composed of four wagons covered
with bunting. He was preceded by
Spellacy, Blanchard, Handley and Al
bert L. Stephens, and while they were
talking- Bell was dined by the Demo
cratic club at the Albion cafe.
NO ••SIRKENDEK, HK SAYS
At San Pedro Mr. Bell said in part:
"My opponent throughout this trying
fight has failed to bring, one chargo
against my character, he has not made
one specific accusation, there is not
one act in all of my sixteen years of
public life to which he can point ac
cusingly, yet he has done what I
thought he would not do; he has re
sorted to insinuation, Innuendo, hints
dark and ominous, whicn all good men
class in the category with anonymous
letters. He has not dared to say, ''in
lie has hinted I • have sold myself to
the Southern Pacific. Listen to it the
way he does it. He says over and over
again, 'If Theodore Bell i« elected gov-'
ernor It will be a victory for tho
Southern Pacific machine.'
"Gentlemen, that is Infamous. I was
fighting this battle When Mr. Johnson
wan on the other side advising With
the enemy. I fought this tisht in con
gress, 1 (ought it four year* ago at!
vigorously and aa vehemently as any
man in California ever fought it. Doea
he admit that? No, but now, at the
eleventh hour, when I nave all but
won the buttle, lie Is going about
hinting and insinuating that I have
surendered just at the time when sur
render would nut bo necessary, even
if I were so inclined, because the pub
lic sentiment is so aroused that I will
be elected governor without the slight
est concession or compromise."
M'KAKH AT I.ONO DKACH
From the San Pedro meeting Bell
went to Long Beach and spoke at the
Auditorium, where a crowd of maro
than 1500 people greeted him.
Court; 1 I-- Hoodenpyi, candidate for
the assembly, presided at the meeting,
and Hiram Blanchard, candidate for
clerk of the supreme court, was the
tlrst speaker. He was followed by
Timothy Spellacy, candidate for lieu
tenant governor.
Spellacy told some funny stories to
Illustrate what a poor speaker he con
sidered himself, ami then made on*
of the best short speeches of the cam
paign-
He declared that from the sentiment
