GRAVE CHARGE OP MURDER RESULTS FROM RANCH FUED Walnut Center Rancher States Before Dying that He Had No Chance for His Life. Corley, Released on $10,000 Bonds, Says Beale Would Have Killed Him. There may he more complications develop than appear on the surface at the preliminary examination of Ollie O. Corley for the murder of Rancher \V. F. Beale of Walnut Center, which Is now the charge placed against the young man since the death of Reale at the California hospital a week ago today. The examination i.s set for August 19th, at 10:l!0 o'clock, at Covina, before Justice Marshall, and Corley is now at liberty on bonds furnished by Messrs. E. E. Cook and Claude F. Congdon, In the sum of $10,000.00. The funeral over the body of W. F. Beale was held at Santa Ana on Monday afternoon, after an inquiry had been made into the cause of death by the coroner. Samuel Beale, a brother of the dead rancher, who lives at the Dresden rooming house, No. 224 South Main street, and who is an ironworker, states that in his estimation the act. of Corley was coldblooded murder. Corley says '.hat he Is very much exercised over alleged threats made by Samuel Beale that he will avenge the murder of his brother, and that Tie is contemplating taking some steps to protect his life through legal process. On the death of Beale, Sheriff Hammel of Los Angeles county ordered the re-arrest of Corley, and Deputy Sheriff George W. Van Vliet took the young man into custody on Saturday, just as he was returning to the Cook home from Los Angeles, where he had gone in the company of Mrs. Elmer E. Cook to institute procedings at the. office of District. Attorney Fredericks in regard to the alleged threats made against his life. Corley has retained Attorneys Davis, Rush and Willis defend him. Although the of Los Angeles to greater number of people in Walnut Center seem to favor Corley's side of the tragedy, there Is, however, another faction. Since the tragedy it has been remarked several times that the affair could have been prevented had the young man been removed from the community. "Ii I had a hired man who was going to shoot one of the .neighbors, I •would get rid of him," is the way one rancher remarked upon the affair. Others in the neighborhood say that Beale was responsible for the discharge of one other ranch hand who had incurred his animosity, nnd that Corley was retained iu order to show Beale that he could, not. run everybody out of the village. The deposition of the dying rancher was taken iate Friday afternoon at the California hospital by District Attorney Fredericks, and his version of the quarrel places all the blame on Corley. He said: "1 was crossing Cook's field on my way to my own lot. corley was mow- Ing, and as I came near him he said, with an oath, "I've got. you, now,' and drew a revolver from his pocket, with which he fired at me. I had no weapon and drew my knife, but Co.rley fired at me. I ran as far as I could after I was shot, and then 1 dropped where I was found." Young Corley's story, told to the district attorney in spite of the letter's warning that it might be unwise for him to talk, is of an altogether different nature than that of Beale. Corley says: "Before I went out to do my mowing, Thursday afternoon, Mrs. Cook asked me if I had my revolver with me. I told her that I had not, and did not think it necessary to carry one, uut she said that as I was going to mow near Beale's pumping plant, he might attack me, and she insisted on my taking a revolver that she had In the house. "I had cut three or four turns with my mower, having some difficulty with my restive team, and was sitting on the headboard of my mower, resting, when Beale saw me and started across from his land at me. As he got near me he said, with many oaths, "I hear you are carrying a gun for- me. I'll cut your throat right now,' and he drew his knife from his pocket and advanced on me with It half open. I replied mildly, and circled about the team, and he struck at 1 me over the team, which was frightened and dashed off. He was coming at me then, cursing, and with the knife in his hand, .when I 'drew my gun and fired. The first shot struck him in his hand, and as he turned I fired again I was so excited how many shots that I do not know I fired. Beale ran about; 500 yards and then dropped, ant I at once went back to the ranch house and told what, had happened.'

There cannot be i life, and that anything which (ends to much stress laid on the indis- i destroy that village lessens the valu< CLEANING CITRUS TREES. (By C. K. Beniis.) The season for successful treatment of black scale upon our citrus trees is now at hand, and it behooves us all who have any such infection in our orchards to at once complete our arrangements for Its extermination. In young and vigorous trcs this pest seems already to have Its young brood fully hatched out, and this will be true on the older trees by September 1. So excellent has been the work of our best fumi?.',ators in this valley for he past few years that it is a rare ^xception to find it necessary to repeat he treatment yearly If done in proper easou, although many of our most uccessfnl growers think it profitable o do so. All growers who did not lave their trees properly fumigated or black scale last fall should see hat they are disinfected this fall. Your horticultural commission is muicl of the fact that the citrus grow- >rs of this valley (with a few rare exceptions) have never required that coercive measures be taken by the .Karri for the disinfection of trees, our growers being fully alive to the im- >ortance of the best up-to-date prac- :ices in citrus culture. Fortunately Covina has no red scale 'o contend with. The few scattering infections of purple scale must be fumigated Immediately, as their eggs are now ready to hatch. Unlike the black scale the purple can be destroyed in its mature stage, including the eggs, so we should not. Invite the danger of the spread of this infection by allowing the eggs to hatch, as nearly all kinds of these scale pests can be spread only in their crawling stage, immediately after the hatch. Now a word about the townsltes. Your present commission has been greatly commended for its policy of requiring trees and shrubbery In town- sites to be freed (rom scale pests or dug out. Although some owners have thought our action arbitrary, all have been more than pleased with the results so far. Covina, Glendora and Azusa are next in order, and all infected trees within the townsites must be treated this season, and in ordei to .have the work done as cheaply and effectually as possible, one or more fumigators should b* given all the work at once, so it can be done consecutively and before the large or chard jobs are begun, as no one can afford to break into large work to do here and there 'a townsitc with a few tents. Nothing depresses your visitors more than the sight of unkempt, town site trees, particularly where the best citrus conditions are claimed. ScutllliBta is unusually prevalent, and it seems as if nearly every old black scale shell in occupied by this fine parasite, or shows the aperture from which it has emerged, and many will presume that they have destroyed all the scale. But wherever much scale occurred last year you will find lOO putable fact that a dollar spent at ! "'his land and places him i further an '* " ' home nnd inclined to drift. This club, it is argued, will cover the ground more efficiently than nny organization hitherto tinder the direct supervision of any sectarian organization. (James of all kinds not demoralizing" will be permitted, athletic work of all kinds encouraged and assisted with the proper paraphernalia and instruction, vocal and Instrumental :nnsic (might In classes, speakers arranged for on topics dealing with the lirlnciplos for which the club stands, and an efficient bureau of employment formed, which will onibnice ovory mini ivho comes to this town in need of work, regardless of station or circnm- stnnros. This, is the principle upon which the new club is taking form, ind with this idea in mind it is hoped Ihiit the business men will soon see ii way to take up and finance Mils work and stand sponsor for It in the future. The Sun From a Balloon. At (ho height of two miles the «\m Rhinos with a tleiTi' Intensity unknown below, where the dust nnd the de-user air scatter the rays, \vhii-h, tliim diffused, lose their intensity while Illumining every nook nnd corner of our houses. At heights exceeding live miles this diffused light Is mostly gone, nnd the sun shines a glowing bull, sharply outlined In a sky of which the blue Is so dark as to approach blackness. At the outer limits of (ho atmosphere tin* sun would appear a brilliant slur of massive size among other stars, and If one stepped from Its burning rays Into shadow he would enter Egyptian darkness. At the height of a mile and a half we .found It necessary to shelter our fnces (o prevent sunburn, although the nlr around us was but little warmer than that of the previous nlRlH, being about 45 degrees. As the afternoon wore on nnd the balloon began to cool and sink we were obliged to throw out much sand, casting It away a scoopful at a time, and just after sunset It WHS even necessary to empty two or three bags at once.—II.
