As the result of a sudden veer Into a treacherous gully at the corner of Cienega street and Grand avenue, four occupants of T. F. Griswold's big Maxwell touring car were hurled out at 6 o'clock Thursday evening, and Mrs. .7. R. Elliott suffered a bad fracture of the arm above the elbow and serious contusions about the body. Mr. and-Mrs. Griswold and Mr. and Mrs. Elliott, with the latter's infant, were all precipitated into the rough ditch, and the car was placed out of commission temporarily. In falling, Mrs. Griswold struck the body of Mrs. Elliott, escaping from the accident with only painful bruises. It. is said that the baby was uninjured. The accident occurred near the home of P. W, Tulley, and Is supposed to have, been caused by the machine striking the deep gully at the turn, rendering it unmanageable. Had It not been that Mr. Griswold was slowing up to take the turn, the accident might have been of even a more serious nature. The Injured lady, with the other occupants, was removed to the Elliott home In Mr. Tully's auto, where Dr. J. D. Reed had been summoned. The fracture will confine Mrs. Elliott to her home for some time. The party was returning from a trip made to Mr. Elliott's ranch at Chi no and. the ride had been uneventful .(4^ ' jL ~-^-- LONG>A3T ENDS. Covina Ranchers Who Starved Out Physical Disorders Now Eating Regularly. The long fast of David Overholtzer and Perry Bashore, two well known Covina ora.nge ranchers, is ended.

The establishment of T. Oshiro, a Japanese, was raided on Friday night of last week by Constable I. C. Fairly and several deputies. The Japanese opened the store in the Mexican settlement, north of Irwindale several weeks ago and immediately began tho Illicit sale of llpuor. That the business hns been prosperous was proved by the many empty boor cases that were found on t.he premises. Five cases of beer were confiscated by the officers and the proprietor fined $10. It is the Intention of Oshiro to open a poolroom In a few days, but tho American and Mexican residents of I ho neighborhood are circulating a petition praying that his pool room license bo revoked. Many of the proprietors of the Japanese labor camps oppose the opening of the pool room on the ground that the laboring men will be unfit for work after spending their nights at such a place. The establishment run by Oshiro Is not the only one which has been selling liquor without a license If anyone jnay judge by the frequent sounds of carousing that can bo hoard at night and by the numerous visitors, both Japanese and American, who emerge from the camps with smacking lips and satisfied expressions.
