Michael Hallisey, in a fit of madness shot himself in the neck with a 38 revolver, Wednesday morning. Hallisey moved from Los Angelesi to El Monte about six weeks ago, and lived in the house where R. Baker used to live. He owns a 20-acre ranch north of town, and had just completed building a new house on his ranch, and Wednesday morning, he was preparing to move his household goods to his new home, when he had a quarrel with his wife, and then he shot himself in the neck, producing an ugly wound. Dr. Bowerman attended him. Hallisey was taken on a P. E. car to the Good Samaritan hospital at Los Angeles. HalllHey was a quiet man and had but little to say. It. is not thought the wound will prove fatal.— El Monte CJa/ptte. The Misses CJoldie Deemor and Hazel Rogers of fJlendora have been guests during the past week at tlio home of Mr. and Mrs. James Honhuni of East Center street. OILED MACADAM. Contractor Charles A. Baldwin of Pasadena Tells How Macadam Roads ' are Built in His City. Contractor Charles A. Baldwin of Pasadena, who has built many miles of macadam streets in Pasadena ano* other cities, was present. Tuesday evening at the regular meeting of the city trustees and told in a brief and interesting way the results which are being obtained with oiled macadam roads in Southern California. "The oiled macadam road," IIP sald^ "is both noiseless and dustless, giving it an advantage even over the asphalt pavement In this respect." He recommended for residence streets, with traffic similar to Center street, a layer of from 2 to 2V 2 inches of crushed boulder rock, bound together with one and one-half gallons of heavy oil to the square yard and rolled until a thoroughly hard and smooth surface Is acquired. This work could be done at an approximate cost of three cents per square foot. Much might, be added, he said, to the appearance of the street by cement gutters. If this were done on Center street it would probably add an additional cost of $6.00 per lot. After listening to Mr. Baldwin, the trustees deemed it wise to postpone the final adoption of the specifications for the paving of Center street until an adjourned meeting to be held on Tuesday next. The Interest which Is being manifested in the Improvement of Center street, was again shown by the attendance .ot^^ property owners Interested. The following demands were allowed and ordered paid: ;. A, M. Pence, $1.7; J. L. Matthews, $4; B. C. Prentiss, $27.75; Sam Cook, $36.50; Pacific Light & Power Co., $32; T. Braden, $47; Covina City Wa- M. L. Mohnerl., $38.40; F. O. DoHsery. M. T,.

Congressman James Mcl,arhlan, father of the Pacific Coast government, steamship hill, Introduced at the session of congress Just closed, returned Wednesday from Washington, coming to Los Angeles by way of San Francisco. Mr. McLarhlin, In speaking of tho recently passed tariff bill, said that nothing more favorable to California could be asked than tho ne\V law. "No true California!! can object, to the tariff bill signed by President Taft," said Mr. McLachlan." No state fared better than California, and wo indeed have much to rejoice over. "But of greater Importance to tho West than the tariff bill Is tho pacific Coast Steamship line, controlled by the government, which I advocated with a bill to consummate It. "On every hand I am assured of a more enthusiastic reception for the Pacific Steamship bill next year, and I can say now that I intend to prosecute the measure to a successful issue, "Before returning to California I made a trip to New York to look over the ground thoroughly, for Now York will be almost as greatly affected by the bill as all the Pacific coast cities. . "Its hearty reception there is assured. "I also made a trip to Panama and talked to all the officials In charge there about the bill, and the affect It v('Oul({j'' In the canal zono, r Nothing; "caii'b^adrie'diei'e until flie"conisf'ejfi of; the secretary of war Is given and tho officers refused to bo personally quoted.' OBSTACLES IN VIEW. "Why, that bill will moan l.he eventual great, development of the richest, section of the country-- Hi" Pacific Coast. In tho of l.he measure. One Is— In the poth of Hie measure. One Is— and I assume Hiis entirely—Hie opposition of the transcontinental railroads, which will undoubtedly do all in their power (o prevent Its passage. The other -and this Is generally known—IB that, tho legislators are prejudiced against enterprises o,' this kind, controlled by Hie government." Mrs. Whltsel Visits Friends In Highlands. Mrs. J. M.
