Inner workings of the theosophlcal Insti

ing the trial of an action tor libel. Mra.
Katharine Tlngley, head of the Universal
Brotherhood, has brought suit againat the
Tlmes-Mlrror company of Los Angeles.
The sensstlonal turn waa given In a
deposition by Louts Fitch of Hartford,
Conn., who said he was employed aa a
bookkeeper by the Universal Brotherhood,
of which he became a member and had
privileges accorded to few others.
Mrs. Tlngley, he added, was considered
a prophet In line of succession dating back
to Budda, Christ and Mahomet. She told
deponent that marriage relations as known
to the world were wholly fslse and per
verted and that people who lived at Point
Loma would finally reach a stage where
weddings would not be necessary.
The pledge of the order bound members
to obey the leaders In all things and the
sole leader was Katharine Tlngley.
Mrs. Tlngley had control over everybody
and everything. She said where every
member should lodge, what they should
eat, when they should eat It, whom they
should hats conversation with and even
designated those who were not to be looked
Mrs. Tlngley had a dog named "Spot"
and told him that "Spot" was a great deal
more than a pet.
"I believe I know," she eaid, "that Mr.
Judge's spirit entered Into "Spot at his
death. Mr. Judge gave 'Spot' to me at the
time of his death and at the time I as
sumed leadership of the Universal Bro'her
bood as his successor."
Mrs. Tlngley even supervised the Inter
course of members of the same family.
Thus she would not allow a Mr. and Mrs.
Hanson to speak with their own children.
Fitch then described some of the cere
monies performed In connection with the
The cuetoms prescribed for all meetings
and gatherings, except the Sunday morn

garment without sleeves, belted with a

Mrs. Tlngley, he went on to say, waa a
worker, and that although her title was
leader, she waa frequently addressed as
"Puerple" by her official cabinet and often
times .as "P" and "mother" until ahe re

CAMPBELL HELD FOR TRIAL
Maa Charared wltb Elarht Burglaries
Mast Go Into District
When he waa arraigned before Judge
Berks yesterday James Campbell, whom
the police ssy Is one of the most In
dustrious burglars they have been able to
round up this year, waa bound over to the
district court. He waa held for trial
under $S00 bonds.
The complaint against Campbell con
tained two counts for burglary, while there
are six more pending, another new ease
having been brought to light against him
since his arrest. Campbell did not appear
to be much disconcerted when he was
brought to face the charges and to the
observer he seemed relieved when the
court hsd concluded the hearing.
With the arrest of Campbell comes a
trying condition to the police In their en
deavor to secure the evidence they desire
against the prisoner. Tbey have found
that certain Junk dealers, after purchas
ing me plunder, deface it by heating or
breaking, until It is easily disposed of.
When the officers call, looking for a trace
of the stolen property. It Is so badly dis
figured that the task Is made most difficult.
Chief Donahue says that steps will soon
be taken to remove this barrier to the ef
forts of the officers, and possibly the city
council will be asked to pass aa ordinance
covering the matter.

HILL WANTS Na MORE LAWS
Says Railroad Commission In Wasb
lacton Waald Retard
SEATTLE, Wssh., Dec. 80. James J.
Hill and his party, Including Mr. Harris,
president of the Burlington, left this after
noon for the east and will arrive in St.
Paul for Christmas. After the first of th
year Mr. Hill announces that he will take
a trip to Europe for a rest.
In discussing politics he said the Great
Northern waa not In politics In this or any
other state, and would not be ao long aa he
could prevent It.
The paasage of a railroad commission
bill tn this state, he said, would retard
some of the plans be had for the develop
ment of trade. The fight now was for
Seattle to handle transpacific trade accus
tomed to tbe Suet canal. He did not an
ticipate a financial depression, but believed
that while there waa a tight money mar
ket It was prudent business foresight to
prepare for any financial condition that
might come in the near future. Adverse
legislation would do more to Injure tbe de
velopment of any part of tbe country than
a railroad could offset.

raotorman of the trolley car thought It was
the last of the train and started to cross
the tracks. When he got his car tn the
middle of the crossing the three freight cars,
which had broken loose from the train, came
rolling along and before he could get his
car over the crossing It was struck with
terrific force by the freight '.are.
Dash Through Wtadows.
The trolley car was completely turned
over and the passenger! thrown through
windows, up against ths doors and on top
of one another.
They were struck In the face with broken
timbers, glaa and everything else moveable.
Ambulances and physicians were summoned
and a crowd which had collected about the
wreck atarted to extricate those who were
caught in the wreck.
The three moat seriously hurt were taken
out unconscious and the physicians directed
their efforts toword reviving them. A
member of the family of each woman ar
rived and refused to allow them to be taken
to the hospital and they were removed in
the ambulance to their homes.
What caused the train to become un
coupled la not known. The trolley car was
completely wrecked. Traffic was blocked
both on the railroad and trolley lines for
nearly two hours.
BBAR IN A TRAP.
Dragra-ed a Forty-Pound Weight
Through Two Conatlea.
Somewhere In the forest region that ex
tends from Cogan House township, Lycom
ing county, to tbe Black Forest, In the
southeastern part of Potter county, reports
the Philadelphia Record, there Is roaming
these daya a big black bear with a forty
pound ateel trap and a ten-foot chain at
tached to hla leg.
Thla bear broke away with one of Joseph
Hopkins' trapa, near Brookslde, about a
week ago, and the laat heard of the shackled
beast 'waa up In the Slate run region, over
thirty miles from Brookslde. For two days
a party of four hunters chased the fugutlve
bear and once one of the men saw bruin
shambling along and out of rifle range.
Though handicapped by the weight of the
trap and the long dangling chain, the bear
waa evidently able to travel faster than
were the men, for the fact that he was
aeen In the upper Slate run district three
days after hja escape ahowa that he waa
yei note to get over territory lively.

ling heifer. It had been preying on Farmer
Hopkins' sheep and pigs for a month before
it allowed Itself to be luvelcled Into thm
trap, and It waa probal "y hla desire for a
change of diet that resulted In hia downfall.
Hopkina hung a calf's head iht r.
the ground, beneath which the largeat of hla
jaw-iooin traps waa hidden.

bat the trap waa gone. The captive bear
must have aet himself free, for the chain

saw ma Dear. The trap was fast to one of
IU hind legs. Now, besides being out the
bear and all hla sheep and shoats, Mr. Hop
kina la also minus hla $20 bear trap.
Old huntere are eagerly discussing the
probable fate of the shackled bear. Most of
them think that he will keep on going and
going, toting his heavy load with him until
he worries and starves himself to death,
unless somebody chances to shoot him, and
even then the meat would be inferior, for a
bear aoon losses his plumpness and tbe
flesh becomes dry and tasteless In captivity.
Other backwoodsmen who know aomethlng
of the habita of bears say that thla bear
will return to hia quarters that he occu
pied last winter and will there await the
natural process of mortification of the Im
prisoned foot to be freed from the trap;
that tba leg will then heal up and a three
tooted bear will be seen next season. Crip
pled In that manner the bear eouM
around lively enough and over a small terrl-
lory, dui aa could never again Join the hik
ing forays of his companions.
When seen In the Slate run region tbe
bear was shambling along an old log road,
going In the direction of the heart of the'
Black forest that Eden of black bears and
catamounts. Two unarmed woodsmen saw
hlra. They were first attracted to him by
tba rattling of the chain aa tt dropped
along over the rocks, and, hiding In the
thicket along the roadside, they were within
ten .yards ot tha bear when It passed and
hey had a good chance to aee him. The
men aay that he had a moat forlorn look on
his face, aa though worried, weary and dis
heartened. He half Jerked, half dragged
the heavy trap along, but when one of the
men yelled at the top of his voice the poor
beast broke Into a dogged run, as though
yet determined to escape any further tor
ment at the hands of man.
Like some derelict on the ocean thla
shackled bear will probably wander aim
lessly and aadly among the ravinea of the
Black forest, to be seen now and thea by
buntera, aervlng to add aest to the fireside
stories In camps or affording material for
yarns at tbe village atore.
