MOB PURSUES MAN IN WOMAN'S DRESS Walter Waller, Ticket Agent, Has Exciting Experience on the Streets at Night COMPANION MAKES ESCAPE Mastjuerader, After Arrest. Tells Police He Took Sister's Clothes for Joke Attired in hnndsomp hobble eowns, stylish black bats and dainty patent leather shoes, two young porsons at tracted much attention at the I,os An geles-Pacific depot near Fifth and Hill streets last night, and veto having considerable fun until they were recog nized as being young men in women's clothing. One of the pair boarded a moving oar and escaped. The other was pursued several blocks and cap tured on Broadway near Fourth street. At the police station the masquo-rader gave his name as Walter Waller and said he is a ticket agent at the Ma jestic theater. The masqueradcrs appeared on the downtown streets some time after 9 o'clock last night and paraded along Broadway. They visited a dance hail, dancing several times with different young men. Finally they again sought the streets. This time they extended their opera tions to Hill street until they passed L. B. Delano of :>GIO Went Eighth street, who recognized Waller, despite his dis guise. BLONDE CURLS AUK SEIZED Without hesitating, Delano seized tlie pretty blonde curls worn by Waller. The masquerader screamed as the black velvet turban and the wig part d and was retained in the firm grasp m Delano. Without waiting to sec the fate of his companion, the other mas querader, whom Waller later said was Tom Ferrell, who lives in Alpine itreet near Grand avenue, ran into the street ;ind leaped aboard a Hollywood car, making his escape. As soon as Waller found he -uas recognized, he drew up his hobble skirt as hiffht as the narrow folds would permit and essayed a record-breaking pace down the street. He was close ly followed by Delano and the letter's two companions, H. P. Pederson and Joe Swanson of 601 West Seventh street. Despite the fact that he was in cumbered with the narrow, awkward skirt and his movements were consid erably hampered by a quantity of lin gerie and hieh-heeled French shoes, Waller made a remarkable showing in Ills race for freedom. At Fourth street he was slightly in advance of his pursuers, who gathered recruits along the way until Broadway was reached when the crowd numbered more than a hundred persons. STt'MBI.ES BEFOBK MOB Waller kept on running, hopping, leaping, stumbling and skipping along. He made a quick turn at Fourth street and Broadway to elude his pursuers, many of whom continued down Fourth street, ljut he lost his grip on the tight skirt and staggered and fell. "Show him no mercy," roared sev eral men. "Tear off his clothes and wo will show such persons how to mislead gallant younsr men." With that they made a rush for the inasquerader, and he would have fared badly had it not been for E. C. Heff ner 'of 928 West Fifty-second street, who broke through the crowd of youths that surrounded Waller and dragged the latter away from them. Then, as sisted by Delano, Pederson and Swan, pon, He'ffner escorted the bedraggled one to the central police station. There Waller adjusted the frilled lace collar lie wore and smoothed a small black "beauty" patch on his left cheek, al lowing the officers to view two g«ld bracelets on his wrists. BAYS CLOTHES AUK SISTKH'S When questioned by the detectives, Waller declared that he took his lister's clothes and donned them to have a little fun with Tom Ferrell, who also secured a full outfit of Nine attire. He declared to the officers that this was the first time he ever uttempted to masquerade as a. woman. When it came time to place Waller in jail on a misdemeanor charge the detectives were undecided where in place him. Some argued that persons attired in a full outlit of women s clothes always were placed in charge of the matron, but it finally was de cided to lock up the accusi d In a cell by himself in the men's part of the jail. Waller is 17 years old and lives at 1005 West Eighth Btreet, COLORADO TO INVESTIGATE.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 28, 3010. HEALTH IN CITIES TO BE PROTECTED Sewer Work and Water Will Cost $4,000,000 in California This Year (Special to The Herald) SACRAMENTO, Nov. 27.— Approxi mately $4,100,000 will have been ex pended by the end of the year in this state for sewers and better water, ac cording to statistics compiled by the state health board's engineer inspector. This outlay may be taken to represent the attempt of California citizens to d dge the annual typhoid tax In pre vious years it is estimated typhoid fever has cost the people of the state at least $1,440,000 in doctors' fees. nurses' bills and loss of time. Largely by the expenditure of large sums for better sanitation this typhoid tax has been cut down from $1,440,000 to $960, --000 in the last two years. The saving of nearly half a million of dollars has been brought about by reducing the typhoid death rate of 600, representing a probable total of 4800 cases, to 400 deaths, or a probable total of 3200 cases. The loss estimate of $300 to the case is very conservative, as there are in stances where sickness from typhoid causes an outlay of $3000 or even $4000 for doctors and nurses' bills alone. IMPROVE!) KEWKBa AMD WATER Ninety-three California towns and cities will contribute to the grand to- I tal of $4,126,866, which it is estimated , will be spent in the state this year for I sewers and better water. The bulk of the amount will be raised by small and medium-sized centers of populatjpn. The places represented are scattered through the state all the way from Calexico, the border city, where it is proposed to install a sewer system in volving an outlay of $35,000, to Alturas, the inland metropolis near the northern boundary, where preliminary considera tions have been made for a sewer and .water system. An analysis of the data compiled by 1 the state engineer inspector results in ' the following tabulations. The total probable expenditure in the state for sewers and better water will amount to $4,126,556 by the end of the year. A | total of $017,094 has already been voted j on for now sewers and disposal plants, and $838,772 for extensions and im- I provements of established sewer sys- I terns. The cost of proposed sewers yet to be voted on is estimated at $1,L'25,300. This makes a total probable expendi ture for sewers during the year of $2, --981,166. Bonds for new water systems have been voted on to the amount of $846,000, and there are planned expen ditures estimated at $300,000, or a total probable expenditure of $1,146,000 for better water by the end of the year. HEALTH TO HE SAFEGUARDED The large outlay for sewers and sew age disposal plants by California towns and cities protect the health and the money interests of the farmer. These measures dispose of wastes which would otherwise flush or drain Into streams, thereby making the surface waters of the state unsafe for human use, unfit for stock and defiling, be sides, the wooded retreats along creeks and rivers. If an equitable basis of health reciprocity was established be tween rural and urban districts the dwellers of the country would be more careful about locating their toilets along- streams that supply the towns. The farmers who produce milk and vegetables would see that no disease germs were carelessly conveyed to the consumers in the city. Under the cir | cumstances county boards of super visors would bo justified in Increasing their health appropriations in order that measures may be enforced which will protect the cities and towns from the country.

One of the recent charities dispensed by the senora was the clothing of 4000 children by the department of public education, which movement was warmly approved by the government. Many of the children who were recip ients of the generosity of the presi dent's wife had never known what a suit of clothing was, having never worn anything but the one-piece cot ton tunic Senora Diaz was so much pleased with the innovation introduced among these children that she is now contemplating a plan by whtch the children of the poor who do not attend school shall be comfortably and prop erly costumed. In this she has the support of her husband and the gov ernment. The wife of the president is a woman of great pride, and It is said that her attention was called to this need of the poorer classes by a friend who was visiting her from Spam, who thought it was a pitiable sight to see so many girls and boys going to school clad in a cotton garment which not only gave them no protection from the elements, but in many Instances was immodest. Senora Diaz studied the matter, and the more she pon dered on the condition brought to her attention the greater grew her resent ment Uiat such a state of things should exist in the domain ruled over by her husband. She presented the matter to President Diaz in such a forceful manner that he authorized the department of instruction to abate the condition.

DETECTIVE TALAMANTES' CASE MAY END TONIGHT Police Commission May Render Decision on Attempted Ex tortion of Money Charge At the meeting of the police commis sion tonight the long drawn out trial of F. J. Talamantes, the detective wno is accused of attempting to extort money from a brother Mexican for in formation of the whereabouts of his daughter, will probah>y bo concluded. The extortion charge is the principal one, but during the progress of the trial other accusations have been made, such as perjury, subornation of per jury, larceny und other crimes. Most of these offenses are alleged to have occurred several years ago, some of them ten years ago, and would be out lawed as far as criminal procedure Is concerned. But the police commission has the power to take cognizance of them, even if the law has not, and if in the opin ion of the commission the charges are sustained, and Ta'ain!intns proved an unlit poison to have on the police force, he can be dismissed. Whatever the conclusions the com mission may draw from the testimony presented to it during the trial, tho commission several months ago decided that Talumantrs was not a proper per son to have on the detective force, and ordered him put to work at walking a beat. As detectives are a ci»il service classification, the civil service commis sion notified the police board that it had not power to do anything of the kind, and Talamantes was restored to the detective force, much against the will of the commission.
