BRUTAL GASPIPE THUGS MUST HANG. Supreme Court Seals the Fate of Siemsen and Oabner by Denying Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
BRUTAL GASPIPE THUGS MUST HANG. Supreme Court Seals the Fate of Siemsen and Oabner by Denying Appeal. San Francisco. —The last hopes of Louis Dabner and John Siemsen, the two condemned gas-pipe thugs, who cruelly murdered a Japanese banker in this city nearly , two years ago, were swept away Monday by the Supreme Court by two decisions sustaining the death sentences that were pronounced upon the men by the Superior Court. The crime for which the two men will forfeit their lives was most unusual in its brutality and daring. Shortly before noon on the day of November 3. 1906. Siemsen and Dabner entered a Japanese bank on O’Far-rell Street, near Webster, and, while pedestrians were calmly passing in front, cruelly and with an intensity that was horrifying, beat to death M. Munkata, the manager, and seriously injured an assistant named Sasaki, making their escape, in the end, with over $2,000. Upon their capture Dabner made a full confession and, later, on being confronted with his acco...
Redwood Officials Clash With Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
Redwood Officials Clash With Railroad. Redwood City.—Friction between the town authorities of Redwood City and the railroad company, which had its origin when the Board of Trustees denied the railroad permission to locate its gates on a public highway, owing to a question as to rights of the town and the railroad over some open streets, developed into open w'ar. A railroad section gang had been set to work tearing up the sidewalks on Mound street preparatory to moving the gates tvhich protect that thoroughfare. This was the first move toward laying two more tracks through the town. While the work was in progress the town authorities, who had been notified, swooped down upon the section gang. The alterations immediately ceased and the walks were restored to their former condition.

What Lompoc Needs [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
What Lompoc Needs Under this head from time to time will be made observations—wise and ! possibly otherwise —intended for the good of Lompoc. Just now we rise to speak to the point of a lecture ! course for next year. We under stapd the committee having it in charge last year are debating in their minds whether they shall undertake j the task of putting through another i course. We think they should. If they do not feel that they could give the time to it some one else who could afford to should do so. It is something Lompoc needs. It’s a reflection on the community to say or think that Lompoc can’t or wont support a good course. All that is needed is to “get the habit.” The little town of Primghar, lowa, only boasts of eight hundred souls in all within the corporate limits, but i t can proudly boast of the • trongest and most successful lecture course that a town of that size anywhere in the world can lay claim to because it got the habit. This season the inhabitants of Primghar ar...

May Change Route Of Palmer Pipe Line [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
May Change Route Of Palmer Pipe Line F. E. Bedicheck, general agent of the Associated Oil company for Santa Barbara county, has been at work for some time in an effort to get a right of way for a pipe line from the property of the Palmer Oil company to Santa Rita, where it is proposed to connect with the main line of the company. He has met with many obstacles, says the Santa Barbara Independent, and it is feared that he may have to give up this route and send the oil through a pipe line from the Palmer well direct to the Brookshire Oil company's property, where the Associated has a six-inch line. Mr. Bedicheck thinks that he is being “held up,” and says that he will not permit it, even if his company has to take a longer route.
Dewey Ten Years After Manila Bay [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
Dewey Ten Years After Manila Bay Washington, April 29. —May Ist was the tenth anniversary of the battle of Manila Bay. Admiral George Dewey, the hero, at 71, is a finely preserved specimen of the sturdy old sea dog. He is rugged and healthy, keen of eye and clear of skin, vigorous and active. In his office in the navy department he looks more the retired capitalist than the annihilator of Montojo’s fleet. His face is kindly, his smile one of pleasant, good nature. He lacks the gruff abruptness of “Fighting Bob” Evans, but he has all his “determination and quickness of decision. Dewey entered the navy some years before the civil war. He was attached to the Mediterranean fleet until 1861, then transferred to the West Gulf squadron. He was with Farragut when he forced the passage of Fort St. Philip and F&lt;?rt Jackson, and in the sub?equ§nt fights which gave him possession of New Orleans. Later he served with the North Atlantic and European squadrons. His rise was rapid. He wa...

Richard Jose’s Singing Charms Our People [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
Richard Jose’s Singing Charms Our People The appearance of Richard Jose with the high-class comedy company, in “Don’t Tell My Wife” at the opera house Thursday evening was the sweetest morsel that a Lompoc audience has ever been treated to in a musical way. Such a treat is a priceless privilege and the cost of a seat should not have caused so many to stay away. No singer, past or present can be compared with this marvelous songster whose voice is as magical and sweet as the tones of a Stradivarions and its range almost as great.” Dick” - Jose is everybody’s favorite —a great big rolly-poly boy of 45 —with the same boyish note in his voice that always characterized him, and the same kindly manner that beckons friendship. He sang his new favorite, “The Beautiful River of Life” and some of the old, old songs that only he has not allowed to die. And such music! No one can reasonably expect to hear “Silver Threads Among the Gold” sung by another as it was sung by Jose Thursday evening. H...
