KronschnabeL had been shot and killed while on duty. . Too dazed and her heart too. hurt to shed a tear, she sat, staring into paoe, , repeating over and over again, "It can't, be true; there has teen a terrible mistake," At first she was told that he was injured In . an accident At once she Insisted that the girl who had brought the news telephone the Receiving Hospital. A police surgeon answered and asked to talk to her, and when he said that her husband was dead she dropped the receiver and fell, fainting, Into the arms of her maid, Evangeline Nora. Then she sent for her friend and neighbor, Mrs. Perry Lowe, who tried to comfort her. The young widow has Just undergone a serious major operation and left the Speed Officer Killed (Continued from First Page.) the lookout for speeders and automobiles cutting the corner. CUTS THE CORNER. Offloer La Niece stated that the murder car, running west on Twenty-third street, cut the corner, turning south into Main street, to such an extent that both he and Officer Kronschnabel remarked that the driver must be intoxicated. Shouting to his partner to remain where he was, Officer Kronschnabel sprang to his motorcycle pulled the machine from its stand and started after the automobile which had almost reached Twenty-fourth street. "'My partner caught up with the machine, which was not making any great speed, almost at the corner of Twenty-fourth street," said Officer La Nleoe. They both turned the corner of Twenty-fourth street "together. That Is the last I saw of either one. Shortly alter the two machines went around the corner I heard what I thought was the backfire of the automobile coming to a stop. The next thing that I knew about It I saw the police ambulance dash by me and turn into Twenty-fourth street. Then I followed and arrived on the soene Just In time to see them plcj- Tom up and load him into the ca'- I was told that he was alread; dead."

Good Samaritan Hospital only three weeks ago., 6fy was In bed, asleep, when the messenger,- bearing the news of her life's greatest sorrow. arrived. ' : . 1 ' She told over and over again of how good her husband had been to her, and bow he had waited on her In her Illness, as though she were a baby. She pictured their happy married life, and one of her great est concerns was what she would tell the baby, little 4-year-old Flor ence. i "What will I tel the baby? It will break her little heart, for she worshiped her daddy, and she was the idol of his heart," she sobbed. Before their' marriage twelve years ago. Mrs. Kronschnabel was Miss Florence Salter. She was" born in London and came to this country with her brothers and sisters. Im mediately after they were married in Christ Church, the then young policeman took bis bride to the cosy home at No. 350 East Jefferson street, where they, have lived ever since. Mr Kronschnabel has two sisters and two brothers living here, but all of Mr. Kronschnabel's rela tives are in South Dakota. She is 34 years old and her husband was 37. of the murderer but believes that he was young and wore no hat She failed to see the license number of the machine as it sped away. Miss Blaidsell In her statement said that she did not see the shot fired but heard the sound and then saw the officer topple from his machine. She paid no attention to the machine but ran at once of the injured man. BELIEVED MOTOR BANDIT. Working' on the belief that the man who shot Officer Kron schnabel is one of the automobile bandits' who for several weeks have been stealing automobiles and then holding up pedestrians and automobile parties about the city and that ha was not alone last night at the time of the killing. Chief Butler called into Central Police Station every motorcycle officer off duty and every officer willing to bring his own automobile for police use. With a squad of officers in each car the Chief gave instructions to the officers to patrol the city and stop all suspicious-looking automobiles. They were also given the numbers of two cars stolen last night which answer the description of the murder car. The two cars which, according to the police, may be in use by the bandits are Overland No. 179338, black body, black running gear and top up. It was taken early In the evening from in front of Occidental College and belongs to O. F. Hart-man of No. 402 South El Molino, Pasadena. The other car is a Studebaker, No. 108718, black running gear and dark blue body. The top was up and some of the side curtains. It was stolen from In front of No. S87 South Fremont street, the home of the owner, R, D. Ferson. From the Sheriff's office every deputy sheriff between this city and San Diego and as far north as San Francisco and notified. Deputy Sheriffs were sent from the local Sheriff's offce out over all the county roads and every machine leaving the city in any direction will be -stopped and Investigated.

By Henry Chrlstecn Warnack. There is no revenge in the dead. In a rage of madness that is like unto the breaking up of the world Virginlus slays the tyrant Applus Claudius, but when he has flung this broken and despised clay at bis feet, his heart yet breaks with the grief that blots the stars. Probably not since the days when the Jenny Llnd Theater at San Fran cisco was the cradle of all that has been truly great lu the history of the American stage has the West known such acting as the two scenes from "Virginlus" presented by Wil liam Farnum and a brilliant com pany at the Mason Operahouse last night as a part of the Upllfters benefit for the Children's Hospital. Only once before have I heard such applause from a Los Angeles audience and that was on the occasion of the same actor's Interpretation of Maro Anthony at the Majestic Theater last July.- Mr. Farnum is a wonaerrui actor for the soreen because he has a soul and an intelligence that will photo graph, but he belongs to the stage, where this high intelligence, taking a supreme measure of the feelings, may be registered by his superb reading. When we shall come again to plays of herolo mold, calling for genius,. reason and strength, the Farnum of the shadow world will return from that vivid ghost land to the world of sound as well as sight It would be impossible in the few words of print to convey any idea of the shock of power which this great actor brought to his audlenoe last night. He was extremely happy in his support the work of Mr. Charles Clary especially, bearing the stamp of large nobility. We are charitable people, we oi Los Angeles. The Mason was filled to the overflow for this sweetest of all charities, and the entertainment was one of remarkable worth. There was quality to every number. The upllfter minstrels were a joy. George Beban reaa one numoer or rare humor and another of deep tenderness. His personality blends these qualities admirably, making his stage presence as natural as an ADrll day. His nlay. "The Sign of the Rose," has long been ranked as an American classic. Mack Bennett s Keystone classlo danoers created one of the big numbers of the evening which moved the audlenoe to break the spetd limit for laughter. Mr. Bennett's people sparkled all through the programme, and a number of other of the movie camps contributed gener ously to the big galaxy of talent which made the evening entirely agreeable. Will Stago "Everyman." T?lehari1 Ordvnskl hn deflnltelv decided to present Hugo Von Hof-mannstall's modern version of "Ev-.i u..,nn" at Trlnlrv Auditorium the evening of January 8. This will un questionably be one or tne great performances of 1917. It will be Mr. Ordvnskt's one big effort for Los Angeles before departing for New York to produce the De Koven opera, to which Percy Macitay nas written the words. High School Play. Tha children of Manual Arts High School presented Josephine Pea- body's "The Wolf of Gubblo," in a creditable manner yesterday afternoon and last night and will repeat this performance on the evening of December 2L The work la staged under the direction of Miss Maude T. Howell. The Influence of Rob Wagner in the seenlo designs Is one of inestimable value to the production. A finer picture than the street scene and arch in Aot II Is seldom to be witnessed upon any stage. All of the little principals do exceedingly well, especially Master James Polsdorfer, as the good St Francis of Assist, who. as Chesterton puts it "loved where all men hate and hated where all men loved. Hubert Batys creation of the Wolf Is picturesque and acceptable. The Wolf has a wonderful line "only one thing men do well It Is the belt- , The great line of St Francis, and for that matter of the play, is. the little ooor man's answer to the worn, an who aays that a wolf will newr be a man.

' Vengeful NOT ALWAYS SO FUNNT. PROPERTY" LAMP POST PLAYS . CHAPLIN NAS1Y TRICK. . By Grace Kingslcy. Charlie Chaplin, ' world - famed comedian, was rather badly Injured In an accident at his studio yesterday. Hs was working in a picture called "Easy Street," when a oom-edy lamp-post without waiting for its oue, after the mariner of comio furniture in Charlie's pictures, aoruptiy and without apparent rea son fell over on Chaplin, the glass oreaKlng and cutting his faoe, and the body of the post which was of Iron, catching Its viotlm oft his guard and crushing him. Chaplin was at once removed to his rooms at the Athletio Club, where, it la said, he will have to remain for at least a week. Likes Ragtime Rialto. Henry Chrlsteen Waraack is happy. He has at last arrived on Main street Log Angeles, which Is much more difficult to achieve some times, he avers, than getting on Broadway, New York. Ever since he first turned a photoplay, it has been Henry's ambition to be seen at the old Grand, and today and tomorrow he Is there, or at least one of his screen dramas is being shown in that house. "The Morals of Hilda" is a Red Feather feature directed by Lloyd Carleton. and star ring Gretchen Lederer, with Lois Wilson and Frank Whitson as sup port - The story Is one of deep pathos, and is based on the Califor nia law on legitimatizing the birth of every child. Visiting Face Card. Martin Lehman, who first put Los Angeles on the theatrical map many years ago, but is now manager of the Orpheum In Kansas City, is here on a visit , Cupid Hits Sophie? There are rumors floating about the Orpheum that Sophie Tucker is to wed, but so far no one has learned what name will take the place of 'Tucker" on Sophie's visiting cards. Emigration Note. Arthur Wenzel. who helps to keep Oliver Morosco and his stars from sinking into obscurity, is to leave the Morosco fold for pastures new. He will accompany Benjamin Brod- sky, motion-picture magnate of China, to New York and then back to the Orient, where he will ' proceed to reveal to a waiting world how they make pictures in China He says he will also learn to translate the tatting-pattern names of his Chinese stars. Let Literature Go Hang. When Warner Baxter makes his appearance as the cub reporter in "The Cub," a comedy Which will go on at the Burbank Theater Monday night, it will recall one of the most momentous periods of his young ex istence. Before Baxter decided to beoome an actor he heard the literary world calling him. Anyhow, he thought he heard a call, but be thinks now It was some other noise. He ob tained a Job as a "cub" reporter on a small paper. The city editor gave him an assignment at 1 o'clock. At one minute past 1 o'olock a stranger stopped him as he was leaving the office and said: I am the managing editor. I want you to hurry to the composing-room and get me a slx- oolnt bulldog." The cub started out At midnight they were still sending him from one department-to another. The next day he decided literature could go to the dogs as far as he was concerned, and started In search of work as an actor. They Look Pretty, Too. There are two little girls In the DlaRhlleff Ballet Russe. to be seen at Clune's Auditorium during Christ mas week, who are having an awful lot of trouble because they are so good looking. They are Valentine Kachouba and Ekaterina Galanta. They are only modest members of the corps de ballet, but everywnere they go the photographers want to take their pictures. This disposition on the nart of the camera men, as can well be imagined, is not at all pleasing to the premiere dansuses. When Kachouba's picture appeared on a front page of a New York 'newspaper's Sunday magaslne sec tion, the entire company went to ur, DlaehllefT with their resignation In addition they must have whispered something to Mile. Kachouba, for no amount of coaxing can lure her to faoe a camera now. Galanta, however, is a very spirited miss, and stoutly maintains that tf anybody wants' to take her picture she Is th one to decide whether or not It shall be done. Pointed Paragraphs.

LARGE AUDIENCE WELCOMES . ' THE YOUNG PIANIST. By Edwin Scliallert Not always does a prophet go un recognized In his own country. Still, lf he would get the fullness of rec- ognltlon It is never a mistake for him to venture abroad to Increase the stature of his fame. . Lester Donahue has grown too big to confine his musical activities to Los Angeles alone,- even though he is only 23 years of age, and still the same slight, rosy-cneeKea MJ M(, Rev Glenn McWlulamBl Becre-as of yore, but I dare say he hadl to Mayor Woodman, has con- rather play here than any place infracted to perform the marriage the world. And Los Angeles, in its . own big way, turned out and gave him 1 a rousing welcome yesteraay aner-noon at Trinity Auditorium, where he made his formal homecoming musically, after his large eastern successes. Mr. Donahue is only going to re main with us a short time, but most of those who were present at the concert could wish that It might be long enough to afford an opportunity of hearing this clever young artist again before his departure to con quer further worlds. His return was surrounded by the atmosphere of rapt attention on the part of the audience, and tne orn Uanca- of Llsat harmonies. The con certo in B flat he played with the Symphony Orchestra is a very splen did type of composition for the display of Mr. Donahue's virtuosity of style. He gets a scintillating array of tone as his fingers trace the varied pattern of notes over the keyboard. The gladness of youth has not di minished In his ert It still is as palpably evident in the diamond- flash of his tone as ever. Meanwhile time has broadened the scope of his power and allowed him to acquire a technical equipment that 13 well-nigh Invlnoible. Lightness and swiftness were the dominant characteristics of his playing of the Liszt concerto. It is a mood that fits his youthful vigor well. Especially toward the close, pianist and orchestra galloped along together to the joyous tempo In a way that provided an exhilarating finale. Donahue and Director Tandler smiled at each other when the final chord was struck. It was a large accomplishment, the rendition, and they could not help taking some enjoyment In it themselves, because the few rehearsals had provided none too .much time to become familiar with the work. Within speaking distance of the surcews of the concerto was the presentation of the Brahms Symphony No. 2 in D ma.for. As a whole the work reveals Brahms In some of his most delightful moods, loslncr not one whit of the -wondrous richness of structure the while. The third movement Is the concentrated essence of loveliness, and the second reaches a certain exaltation of feeling. While the melodic worth of the wood-wind passages was not fully emphaslred, the rendition under Director Tangier's baton was. on the whole, quite clean-cut and well colored. In fact. It is very remarkable how much progress the orchestra Is rt the musical side of their productions. . Beethoven's Overture to Eemont and that Revolutionary Etude of Finland, Sibelius tone-poem, "Fln- landla," were the other two numbers on the programme. The sr-mngement of the orchestra has been chartered somewhat brln-rlng the woodwinds to a more advantageous position; and It helped to add character. Lester Donahue was- recalled Ave time after playing the concerto, and at lost surrendered his desire not to delay the progress of the con-cort. plsving Liszt's "Dance of the Gnomes." The programme will be repeated tonight Flrat Ortera Rehesrsel.

Asked by Mr. Parry If be had known of the Incident at the Sierra Madre Club, Dr. Chapman replied; "Capt Helms did not tell me he was a member of the Sierra Madre Club, nor that he visited there three or four times a week and drank intoxicating liquors. He did not mention blue moons, pink garters nor cocktail with onions in them when he asked me for the letter of Indorsement If he had he would not have received the letter worded as the one I gave him."

A the alleged libel referred to the captain as a user of intoxicants, the ruling affirms that portion of the article. Former Supervisor Jones, who accompanied Capt Helms on the trips to the Plumbers' and- Bakers' Union smokers, testified he never saw the captain drink. Asked If he knew the captain did not drink, he replied he could not say. Alexander W, Bonnyeastle proved a remarkable witness. Testifying as to his membership at the Sierra Madre fClub, he declared when he played games of cards with Capt. Helms they- played solo, and the only prize for this game was a glass of water. "Water solo" was such an unusual pastime for clubmen.
