Broadway Jammed by People
Who Want to Get Earliest
Accounjs of Elections
Partisanship Is About Equally Di
vided, and Woolwine Fight
Leads in Interest
Broadway, between First and Sec
ond streets, was crowded for hours last
night with people getting the election
returns through the medium of The
Herald bulletins. The Herald's bulle
tins on the returns In Southern Cali
fornia were ahead of any others In the
city, and the results In New York, New
Jersey, Massachusetts and other east
ern states were given first by The
In the great crowds that gathered to
watch the bulletins partisanship seemrd
to be about equally divided. No mat
ter what the scattering returns indi
cated they were greeted by cheers.
Greatest attention seemed centered and
the most feeling was displayed over
the contest for the district attorney
ship. Whenever the returns indicated
Woolwine in the lead applause swept
through the crowd, and when Freder
icks figures totaled highest his friends
In the crowd tried to outvoice the
Woolwine people.
When the early returns showed Bell
In the lead a number of men In the
crowd secured bells and gongs of every
description and for half an hour bed
lam was let loose by these celebrators.
There was also a notable demonstra
tion in front of The Herald office when
the returns showed beyond question
that Dix had carried New York state.
As state after state in the east
showed Democratic victories and Dem
ocratic gains the Jeffersonlan portion
of the crowd gave itself over to cele
Through special wires in The Herald
office and special arrangements to flash
the Associated Press bulletins in front
of The Herald ns soon as they were re
ceived, this paper was notably first in
retting the returns. Not only was it
the first to get the results in New York,
New Jersey and Ohio, but it kept up
with the count for county officers as it
progressed in different parts of Los An
geles county. Because of the lengthy
and complicated ballot in California
this year returns were necessarily slow
In coming in, and it was late before the
results In the county fights seemed at
all definite.
The big crowd In front of The Herald
continued to watch the returns until
after midnight. Greatest interest was
aroused through the uncertainty in the
state and some of the local contests.
Despite the excitement aroused by
some of the returns the best of order
was maintained in the crowd, and the
only work for the policemen in front of
The Herald office was to keep a way
clear for passing cars.
Driver Charged with Overweigh-
ing Butchers' Waste
Walter Hester, a driver and collector
for the United Phosphate company, was
arrested last night by Detectives Mc-
Namara and Dixon and booked at the
central police station on a charge of
petty embezzlement.
It appears that Hester collected
bones, tallow and other material of a
similar nature from the various meat
markets in this city. The detectives
say ho made a practice of allowing
credit for more than he purchased and
dividing the difference with the per
■ons from whom he made purchases.
According to the officers Hester
bought the fertilizing material by the
pound, paying a. cent and a quarter for
bones and more for the other stuff.
When he would weigh the stuff, they
allege, he would add 10 per cent to the
weight and then divide the difference
with the seller.
According to the detectives Hester is
said to have embezzled more than $2000
worth of fertilizer during the past year.
The accused is married and has a
■wife and baby living at 625 Wall street.

Wide Prohibition Votes
KANSAS CITT, Nov. B.—lnterest In
the constitutional amendment provid
ing for statewide prohibition over
shadowed every other consideration in
the election today.
All-day prayer services were held in
every ward in this city under the aus
pices of the W. C. T. U. This organ

in each ward and women went to places
near the polls and held outdoor prayer
The supporters of Howard F. Lea,
Republican, and William P. Borland,
Democrat, candidates for congress in
\he Fifth district, were active. Lea is
■he only progressive Republican con
lressional candidate In Missouri.
After a thorough Investigation of the
fruit growers In Florida, following the
hurricane which recently swept that

Luna Park Management Buys
One Animal in Berlin
and Gets Two
At Phoenix, Ariz., is "Luna," a baby
camel Just one day old, awaiting to be
brought to Los Angeles.
"Luna's" mother, a handsome Afri
can animal, which was born on the
sands of the Sahara, was purchased
by the Luna parK management, Los
Angeles, from the great Hagenbeck
zoological gardens In Berlin. This
transaction was completed a month
ago and the handsome specimen was
at once shipped to America.
The baby's mother forgot to mention
the fact that she was ( expecting a
daughter and the 'act was not chron
icled by her shippers, either, bo that
the park management here was great
ly surprised yesterday upon receiving
a telegram from the Wells-Fargo ex
press people that a baby camel had
been born in the car consigned to this
city and that, in the opinion of a vet
erinary surgeon, neither mother nor
child would be benefited by any fur
ther transportation for some days. The
telegram was sent from Phoenix, Ariz.,
where the car had been sidetracked.
Accordingly mother and child were
given fci care of the Dodds Transfer
company of Phoenix and there they
will remain a sufficient number of
days to enable them to proceed with
the rest of the trip.
Camels born in captivity are rare.
There are probably not three infant
camels In civilization at the present
time. The little creatures are ex
tremely valuable, cich being worth as
much as a big herd of cattle—even at
the present price of beef.
Charles Martinez Uses Knife to
Emphasize Objection to Bill
Suey Yuen, a Chinese restaurant
keeper at Alameda and Marchessault
streets, said it was porterhouse.
Charles Martinez said it was some
thing else, unless his taste deceived
him. Then the trouble began.
Half an hour later the Oriental
reached the receiving hospital with a
long gash on the forehead which he
said Martinez had indicted. The lat
ter was arrested, charged with assault.
Martinez took dinner yesterday in
Yuen's place. He said he ordered por
terhouse, listed on the menu at 30
cents an order. After eating the steak
he said he had been served a substi
tute for porterhouse and refused to
pay more than 20 cents.
When the Chinese protested Marti
nez drew a knife, according to the
complaint. He struck Yuen above the
eye. When Patrolman Moyer of the
Chinatown squad stopped hostilities
the Chinese was stretched on the floor,
bleeding profusely.
WATKRTOWN, N. V., Nov. B.—The
war which the local board of educa
tion is waging against high school fra
ternities has reached a climax with the
expulsion of sixty-four out of a total
enrollment of 884 students in the high
school. Their expulsion followed their
refusal to sign a paper renouncing
present or future membership In secret
high school organizations.
Twenty-nine of those standing out
against the board are girla. The ex
pelled ones have engaged an attorney,

Chamber of Commerce Secretary
Prepares for Eastern Displays
Frank Wiggins, secretary of Los An
geles chamber of commerce, left for
the east yesterday to complete ar
rangements made by the organization
to install an exhibit thjs winter in
New York and Chicago and re-esta
lish the display now being maintained
in Atlantic City. The proposition has
been under consideration some time,
but the chamber did not desire to make
an announcement of it until financial
arrangements had been completed, as
the expense is to be heavy.
The contrast between life in sunny
Southern California and life in the
wintry east will be sharply drawn, ac
cording to Mr. Wiggins, and cannot
fail to bring many persons to this coast
as a result. Mr. Wiggins will return
to Los Angeles December 1 and dur
ing his absence H. B. Girley, assistant
secretary, will be in charge of the
chamber of commerce headquarters.
The National Land and Irrigation
exposition, opening in Chicago Novem

California Claims No Territory
East of Mid-Channel in
the Colorado
PHOENIX, Atlz., Nov. B.—The
boundaries controversy, which came
up early In the session of the consti- |
tutional convention, was disposed of I
today by the adoption of the original
proposition, the committee on federal
relations reporting that California i
waived all claim to territory east of
mid-channel In the Colorado river.
Today was fixed for degate on the
recall measure, but after much argu
ment and parliamentary wrangle it
was postponed till Thursday morning,
when" it is expected a warm contro
versy will take place over the pro
vision to recall the Judiciary, though
no minority report excepting judges
from operation of the recall was sub
mitted. The most Important minority
amendment offered separates the re
call election and the election to fill
the vacancy so created.
Gen. E. W. Thomas, commander of
the department of Colorado, was
extended the privilege of the floor
tills morning, being the first upon
whom that honor has been conferred
by unanimous vote as required by the
rules of the convention.
Another effort made to hold night
sessions during fair week was defeat
ed, the convention adjourning at noon
till tomorrow morning.

Takes Long Time to Vote
CINCINNATI, Nov. B.—President
Taft arrived here today to cast his
vote in the O'Brienville district of Cin
cinnati. He went from the train to the
home of his brother, Charles P. Taft,
going to the polls later.
President Taft voted at 11:37 a. m.
The polling place was an unoccupied
store room at 2034 Madison road. The
president spent four minutes in the
booth, marking the ballot. He seemed
to be examining every name on it.
President Taft sent the following
telegram to Warren G. Harding, the
Republican candidate for governor:
"I congratulate you on your wonder
ful canvass. No matter what the re
sult today you have commended your
self to your fellow citizens and have
effectually united Republican ranks for
future contests."

Struck under the chin by the handle
of a small trip hammer at the Wash
ington Iron works yesterday morning,
John Moore, 18 years old, an ironwork
ers' apprentice, living at 1779 Albion
street, so severely injured his tongue
that he was taken to the reeciving
hospital for treatment. '
Moore was working over the ham
mer shortly after the works opened
whet* the handle new up, striking the
boy under the chin. His Jaws snapped
together, the teeth closing- over the
tongue. The tip of that organ was
nearly bitten off.
Many prominent professional men
gathered at luncheon yesterday to dis
cuss woman's suffrage. J. H. Braly
was host. The luncheon was given at
the Angelus hotel for the purpose of
furthering the plans of the equal suf
frage workers.

by witticism on the subject, it was
accorded gTave consideration, and the
men spoke feelingly on the advantages
of equal franchise.
Mr. Braly'a guests were Dr. Robert
Burdette, Rev. H. K. Walker, Rev.
Charles E. Locke, Rev. A. C. Smlther,
Rev. Horace Day, Dr. Baker P. Lee,

Henry E. Huntington Confirms a
Report of Contemplated Man
agement Change
Railroad May Trade Los Angeles
Line Holdings to Get Own
, ership of P. E.
The Southern Pacific will, within a
short time, own outright and operate
all the lnterurban lines formerly con
trolled by the Pacific Electric com
pany and the Huntington family.
Confirmation of this fact came la-st
evening direct from Henry E Hunt
ington, president of the Paciilc B-lec
The announcement comes as the re
sult of a conference held yesterday
afternoon between the heads of the
two corporations concerned. All yes
terday afternoon Mr. Huntington and
W. E. Dunn, head of the Pacific Elec
tric legal department, and wuliam
F Herrln, head of the legal depart
ment of the Southern Pacific in Cali
fornia; Epes Randolph, head of the
same company's interests in Arizona,
and Paul Shoup, assistant Ben| ral
manager of the Southern Pacifies
electric lines in California, were clos
eted together. Following the meeting
Mr Huntington admitted that nego
tiations had been entered into which
contemplated his retirement from the
Pacific Electric and the operation of
that line by the Southern Pacific. ±Ie
sttaed that the negotiations had not
gone far enough to warrant stating
this as an absolute fact, but that if
satisfactory arrangements could be
made the change would be made. ±i«
"The result of yesterday's confer
ence will probably result in my re
tiring from the management of trie
Pacific Electric, in fact, retiring from
that line entirely, and devoting my
time to the Los Angeles railway ex
clusively. The change has not been
definitely made yet—the negotiations
are simply under way and nothing
has been decided. "We will be in con
ference against tomorrow, and I win
have somthing more definite to give
out following that conference."
Under the present arrangements the
Huntington interests own one-half the
stock of the Pacific Electric and the
Southern Pacific the other half. The
Southern Pacific also owns 45 per
cent of the Los Angeles street rail
way. It is believed that the Hunt
ington Interests are trading their
shares in the Pacific Electric com
pany for the Southern Pacific's inter
est in the Los Angeles railway, which
will give them absolute control of the
Los Angeles railway, although com
pletely ousting them from the Pacific
"If the Southern Pacific takes over
the Pacific Electric," continued Mr.
Huntington, in speaking of the result
of the conference, "that company will
adopt a liberal policy In operating it.
Of this I am sure. The Southern Pa
cific will operate the property along
the lines which the present manage
ment has done, carrying out the im
provements which we have begun and
those which we have contemplated."
No reason for the change in man
agement of the company would be
given by any of those concerned.
A few weeks ago the Los Angeles
Railway corporation, a concern or
ganized to take over the assets of the
Los Angeles Railway company, ab
sorbed the city lines of the Pacific
Electric company. At that time it
was rumored that Mr. Huntington was
about to relinquish control of the Pa
cific Electric in favor of the Southern
Pacific. This fact was denied at the
time by officers of the company, who
stated that the move was made solely
to make universal transfers possible.
A few days later the absorption of
the Los Angeles & Redondo Railway
company by the Pacific Electric was
announced. This also was denied, but,
following yesterday's conference, the
truth of the rumors- became evident.
The report that the Pacific Electric
was to be absorbed by the Southern
Pacific was denied at first also by
offlcfuls of the electric company. This
fact, it is said, lends strength to a
report in financial circles that the
Huntington interests are being- forced
to retire from the road by the South
ern Pacific, which corporation de
sires to centralize under one head its
electric holdings.
It is believed that the retirement
of Mr. Huntington does not mean the
retirement of officials of the company
other than those closely identified with
the Huntington inetrests. In all prob
ability the Pacific Electric, the former
Los Angeles & Redondo and the Loa
Angeles-Pacific lines will be consoli
dated under one head and J. McMil
lan, present general manager of the
Pacific Electric, put in charge of the
consolidated lines as general manager,
Thomas McCaffery, general superin
tendent, moving ui> in the same man
ner, and D. A. Munger, general pas
senger agent for the Pacific Electric,
becoming general traffic manager of
the entire system.
It is said that to make room for
this last change D. Pontius, at pres
ent traffic manager of the Los An
geles-Pacific, will return to the South
ern Pacific steam roads, where a po
sition will be made for him.
No definite date for the change has
been set, according to officials, who
state that none will be until after the
deal is completely settled. It is be
lieved, however, that the change will
come next January 1.
Charged with "switching" furniture
from one house to another without
permission of the owner, Mrs. Emma
Reid of 1037 West Seventh street will

Child in Orphanage Says She
Thinks Parent Will Be
Glad to See Her
In an effort to find her father, from
whom she was taken In infancy and
placed in an orphanage in New York,
Hortense Hughes 12 years old now
living in another orphanage in Moll*
nett. Mo. has written the chief of
police of this city.
Chief Galloway yesterday received a
letter from the girl penned in a child
ish hand begging the Los Angeles au
thorities to help lind her father. She
says she has reason to believe her
parent is in this city and would be
glad to hear from his daughter.
"Please find out if he wus ever mar
ried and if he had a daughter named
Hortense" the child writes. "If you
will give me all the information you
can get I will be so thankful."
The meaning in the child's letter in
some parts is not entirely clear. In
the first paragraph she refers to her
self as "Hortense Hazelton" but she
signs the letter with "Hortense
Hughes." The police believe she was
adopted into some family before being
placed in the New York orphanage and
her name changed. She says her
father's name is H. W. Hazelton.
