LOS ANGELES IN
STATE JF PANIC
Discovery ol Two More Bombs
BOMB FOUND AT OTIS HOME.
Infernal Machine Discovered in Zee-
handelaar Residence Effort Sus
pected to Destroy Auxiliary Plant of
Nonunion Paper Times Building
Destroyed With Lost of Twenty.
Los Angeles, Oct. 3. Following the
xploslon which destroyed the build
ings and plant of the Los Angeles
Times,' with loss of a scorevof lives,
na attempt was made to destroy the
residence of Harrison Gray Otis, pub
lisher of the Times, by means of an
internal machine. A suspected eft'oit
to blew up the auxiliary plant of that
paper and tho finding of a powerful in
fermil machine In the residence of Sec
retary Zeehandeluar of the Merchants'
.ind Manufacturers association has
wrought this city to tin Intense state
of suspense and excitement. General
Otis and the other responsible heads
of the paper unequivocally charge the
Times bulldlns disaster and the nar
rowly averted attempts at further de
struction of life and property to labor
The present trouble Involving the
Diets family which led to the shoot
ing Is the result of a quarrel Dietz
had with Bert Horel, a school super
visor of Winter, over the rent for a
building used for school purposes. The
quarrel took place on Sept. 7, when
Dletx shot Ilorel through the neck,
the wound not proving fatal, however.
A warrant was sworn out for Dietz"
arrest, but he has prevented service
by threatening to shoot. Knowing
Deltz' record as the defender of Cam
eron Dam, deputies have been careful
about approaching him.
With equal emphasis the leaders of
union labor here and throughout the
state repudiate the accusations and
have offered all aid In their power in
the effort to detect the culprits.

No clue to the outrage has been un

together with the offers of local news

largely of Americans, had descended,
That they were klllad Is thought certain.
Latest reports place the known dead

CARELESSNESS IN THE
USE OF FIREARMS IN CITY
There has been entirely too much
promiscuous shooting of fire arms
within the city limits of late. Almost
every day in some part of the city
the report of a gun is heard, and no
one apparently knows the reason, nor
how near some one .comes to being
seriously, if not fatally, injured. Only
last week a young lady residing on
High School Hill was sitting at. her
piano, and while turning over her
music heard the report of a gun to
the south of her residence, and al
most simultaneously a shot, or bullet,
crashed through the window only a
short distance above her head. Where
the bullet came from, or who fired
the gun is not known, but the young
lady had a close call for her life. It
would seem that one should at least
be safe when sitting In their own
parlor. The criminal carelessness of
some persons may result ln the death
of an Innocent person, and the only
way to prevent such things is to ar
rest and punish every person firing off
a gun within the city limits. Acci
dents of this sort are ' frequent
enough in tho sparsely settled coun
try districts, and should certainly be
guarded against in a thickly popu

Floyd Gibson Injured.
Floyd Gibson, son of D. Gibson,
formerly in the music store ln this
city, was run down last Friday, near
his home at Missouri Valley, by an
automobile and severely, if not fatal
The little boy was on his way from
school in the evening, when another
child of about his age seized his hat
end threw it across the street, and
the little boy dashed after his hat,
not noticing an approaching automo
bile, got directly in front of it and
was run over before the . machine
could be stopped. The car was not
being run fast and the driver did
not expect the child to run in front
of his car, and could not stop In time
to save the boy. No blame was at
tached to the operator of the auto.
The little boy was picked up un
conscious and carried to the hospital
and medical aid summoned. Mrs. H.
G. Van Horn departed for Missouri
Valley this morning to visit Mr. and
Mrs. Gibson and assist them in caring
for the littll fellow.
