MOB GLAMORS TO
LYNCH JAPANESE
Oriental Throws Stone at Boys
Who Attack Him, and the
Missile Hits Woman
CROWD RESPONDS TO SCREAM
Actor Saves Restaurant Keeper
Who Is Menaced at Sev
enth and Olive Sts.
Attacked by three youths at Seventh
and Olive streets at 8 o'clock last
night, John Ishlwnta, a Japanese res
taurant proprietor of 610% West
Seventh street, hurled a large stone at
his assailants. it missed them and
struck Mrs. F. H. Case, wife of a
Santa Ana sugar factory official, who
was walking on the opposite side of
the street with J. F. Carroll, a guest of
the Adams hotel, 532 South Grand ave
nue. The missile, thrown with
force, struck the young woman on the
chest, inflicting an uffly wound.
A crowd of seventy-five men and
boys quickly gathered, and before the
woman was taken inlo a corner drug
store they were chasing- the Japanese
with cries of "Lynch him!" "Kill him:"
"String him up!"
Harry Hanlon, a vaudevile performer,
whisked the Japanese Into the offices
of the Home Telephone exchange and
saved him from rough handling. He
was taken to the police station and
booked on suspicion of assault and will
be held by the police until the woman's
husband arrives from Santa Ana and
decides whether he desires to prose
cute him.
Mrs. Case was removed to her apart
ments in the Adams hotel. It is
thought she has received a broken
collar bone and possible Internal In
juries.
The Japanese was walking along the
street when three boys, wiio have not
been found by the police, pounced upon
him. one of them seized him by the
coat collar and "rushed" him for sev
eral paces while his comrades pelted
him with stones.
Suddenly the youth who was holding
Ishiwata, who is of small stature and
was helpless in the boy's gm>-p, threw
him forward on his face in the street.
No sooner had the Japanese fallen than
the youngsters kicked and beat him.
The Japanese regained his feet, and
fighting fiercely picked up a stone and
threw it at his nearest asailane.
The rock narrowly grazed the boy's
head and struck Mrs. Case. Her
scream as she sank to the pavement
drew a crowd. Quickly the word
spread that a Japanese had struck a
woman, and with one accord they
closed about Ishiwata. Menaced by
the mob, he ran down the street and
into Hanlon's arms. Hanlon placed
the Japanese before him, and facing
the pursuers motioned as though he
would draw a gun. They halted for a
moment, but still continued their
threats. Taking advantage of the situ
ation, the actor ran with his prisoner
into the Home Telephone exchange,
with the crowd in close pursuit, and
barring the doors awaited the arrival
of the police. The patrolmen drove off
the mob, and the Japanese was taken
in the patrol wagon to the central
police station.
Ishiwata, who speaks little English,
dramatically went through a panto
mine illustration of the accident be
fore Acting Lieut. Long in his private
office. The officer ordered him held,
pending a further investigation and to
give Mr. <"'ase an opportunity, if he so
desired, of filing a complaint against
the prisoner.

CRIPPEN'S FATHER
ALSO FACES DEATH
Aged Parent of Man Convicted of
Slaying Wife May Not Live
Until Execution
VERDICT CAUSES BREAKDOWN
Angeleno. Dependent on Chari
table Neighbors, Is Threat
ened with Pneumonia
Myran Crippen, aged father of Dr.
Hawley 11. Crippen, who was convicted
recently of the murder of his wlfa ami
sentenced to death in London, may not
live to hear the sad news Hashed across
tile Atlantic that his son has gone to
death on the scaffold. Mr. Crippen is
t s;; years of age. He li.is been ill sev
eral days, and last night the physician
who is attending him said that ho is
threatened with pneumonia.
Although confident ever since his
sun's arrest that the latter is inno
cent, Mr. Crippen has been broken by
the sorrows heaped upon him lately.
He has been unable to work and has
been provided with a room and meals
through the kindness of L. N. Frank,
who has charge of a rooming house at
224 South Flower street, and others.
Dr. Lee Burt, who is attending the
man. believes he will not recover.
'The old man is penniless and his
circumstances are most pitiable," said
Dr. Hurt last night. "His physical
condition, linked with disease and the
worry caused by his son's Impending
fate, la more than he can withstand
much longer. He should be put in a
hospital."
All through the recent trial of his
son for the murder of his wife the
aged lather could be seen hovering
near the newsstands awaiting the re
ports of the hearing. Those who saw
him daily could see his step grow less
linn and his form bent. He was helped
and looked after by his sympathizing
in iijibors, but the final verdict was too
much.
MANY SIGN PETITION
. LONDON, Nov. 17.—Solicitor Newton
has secured several thousand signa
tures to a petition for a reprieve for
his client, Dr. Hawley H. Crippen, sen
tenced to die for the murder of his
wife, the actress, Belle Elmore.
TIGER CUB CAPTURED IN
TEMPLE JOINS N. Y. ZOO
New Arrival Has Tourist's Trou
bles with Customs Officers
NEW YORK, Nov. 17.—The latest
addition to the Central Park zoo is a
brawny tiger cub, captured two
months ago by a party of American
naturalists in the ruins of a 3000-year«
--old temple- at Chlohen Itza, Yucatan.
The Americans lassoed the little fel
low and carried him in a bag on mule
back to Progre»so, where he was pre
sented to Mrs. Marie Wright of Roch
< In, X. V., who was returning to the
United States after spending four
months in Mexico aw a delegate to the
Centennial celebration.
The tiger had a hard time on ship
board, being- attacked with a sickness
and requiring constant care through
out the voyage. Nor were his troubles
over when the ship reached her dock
in Brooklyn. The rod tape of the cus*
toma department held him confined to
hia narrow box tyi the pier for more
than twelve days, because of a gov
ernment rule that wild animals may
not be imported except by a licensed
dealer.
Mrs. "Wright finally was told that the
tiger would pass muster if brought for
a public collection. She accordingly
turned over all her rights in her cap
tive to the Central park officials and
they Becured his release from detention
at the hands of the customs men.

TAFT SAYS CANAL
PROGRESS GREAT
Declares Results Show Lock Type
of Ditch Are Preferable
to Sea Level
(Associated Press)
COLON, Panama, Nov. 17.—Presi
dent Taft sailed for Charleston at 6
o'clock this evening aboard the ar
mored cruiser Tennessee, after four
interesting' days on the Isthmus.
Before leaving the president said:
"This is the fifth time I have visited
the Isthmus, and I have gone over the
whole line and looked into every part
of the improvements. It is about
twenty-two months since I was last
here, and in that time the progress
made has been most satisfactory. In
deed it has been remarkable.
"The first thing that strikes one is
the fact that work is being done ap
parently on every foot of the fifty
miles (jf the canal and done under an
organization of men, plants and mate
rials that operates as economically and
effectively as if it were a machine
with Goethals in control of the lever.
"When I waa hero twenty-two
montns ago the main question was the
confirmation of the judgment of con
gress In having adopted a lock type
canal Instead of a sea level. The ex
tent to which Gatun ilam and the. locks
have been completed has removed
from every impartial observer the
slightest doubt of the wisdom of the
decision made and the feasibility of
the plan adopted; This conclusion is
further confirmed and clinched by the
difficulty occasioned by slides in Cu

TO GIVE STUDENTS CREDIT
FOR WORK OUTSIDE CLASS
NEW YORK, Nov. 17.—Columbia
university is preparing a plan for giv
ing academic credit for student activ
ity outside of the classroom, such as
work on the college newspaper and
magazine, debating membership in lit
erary societies. Athletics will not
count.
A year ago President Butlor recom
mended such a course for students not
in athletics. Students who will profit
by the new arrangements are the mem
bers of the editorial board of the
Spectator, the college daily newspaper,
and the editors of the literary month
ly. When the plan Is fully worked out
It is probable that students who take
part in college plays will get credit
for their work.
EDUCATOR SAYS PARTY
POLITICS UNPATRIOTIC
College President Asserts Ameri
cans Divided in Factions
Fighting Each Other
CHICAGO, Nov. 17.—There la no pat
riotism In party politics and there will
he no real tariff revision until it is
done by an impartial commission, ac
cording to Dr. Cyrus Northrup, presi
dent of the University of Minnesota,
who addressed the National Founders'
association at its annual banquet here
last night.
"The great trouble with the American
people," he said, "is that thoy divide
Into two great parties and tiien fight
each other. When a fiouii measure is
proposed iby a good party the other
party does not frankly approve the
measure, and help pass the laws neces-
Bary fur the adoption of the measure,
on the contrary, it tries to sidetrack
on some technicality, admitting it is
good In intent but not correct In form -
all because they are afraid the party
proposing the measure will got too
much u'oUit ior it if the law is adopt
ed. That is politics, but not patriot
ism.
■Take the tariff for example, Unlike
a majority of college officials, especial
ly college political economists, I al
ways have been In favor of protection
and opposed to free trade. 1 always
have I.' lieved, and believe now, that
our country has done well to protect
its Infant Industries.
"But when our Industrial enterprises |
1,. , ime strong as nyiny of them now
are, it is absurd to 'talk any longer
about the protection of Infant Indus
tries so far as these are concerned.
We all know perfectly well that the
dutli S on a good many things might be
reduced wtlhout any danger to Ameri
can industrial prosperity; but we are
not in a position t" say so frankly,
and trot the duties reduced, foi
somebody else is working as hard as.
possible to keep the duties that affei I
his Interest as high as they are now.
We cannot afford tv have protection
taken from us and let it remain on
other people.
"And so the light goes on, everybody
resisting a lowering of the tariff as
far as it would affect their own busi
ness."

AMERICAN AGENTS
EXPECT UPRISING
Secret Service Officers on Alert
for Trouble in Towns
Near Mexico
(Associated Press)
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Nov. 17.—
Federal secret service officers who have
been working here for the last several
days today learned many details of the
revolutionary plot in part uncovered
by the Mexican government.
A general rising along the border
from Nogales, Ariz., to Brownsville,
Texas, was set for Sunday, November
20. Nogales is the headquarters of the
junta operating in Sonora. It lias been

by a seemingly inexhaustible supply of
money, which has been used to pur
chase arms in this country-
Authorities in Washington were ap
prised of these facts, but as yet the
revolutionists have committed no act
that can be constituted as overt under
the federal statutes. Consignments of
arms are under surveillance in San An
tonio and elsewhere. When an attempt
is made to take them across the border
they will be seized.
According to federal officers bore,
the revolutionary propaganda Is: Th«
release of all political prisoners; the
welcoming of all political exiles; the
establishment of a popular govern
ment; the capture of all customs
houses; removal from office of Diaz
and his adherents.

Angeles know how discolored our city
water often is after the early rains.
Aside from these vegetable im
purities, our water at all times con
tains considerable amounts of min
erals. Those are entirely dissolved in
the water. They are taken into the
system when the water is consumed,
and Instead of being assimilated by
the body, are deposited in the ar
teries—a fertile cause of rheumatic
and kidney troubles.
These minerals cannot be separated
from the water by any mechanical
device whatever. Filters, percola
tors and all such devices fail in this
particular.
To free water from minerals en
tirely dissolved In It you must change
the nature of the water. Distillation
is the only sure, perfect process.
We distill Puritas twice, as two
distillations are necessary to water
purity. We aerate it with pure ozone,
secured by passing a current of elec
tricity through filtered air. We bot
tle Puritas in clean glass demijohns.
