VOLUME LXXVIL— NO. 126. NEWS OF THE COAST. Capture of a Famous Jewelry Thief in Los Angeles. SAN JOSE'S ROSE TAIR. Preparations Under Way for the Santa Clara Floral Exhibit. SONOMA COUNTY WINE SALE. Uklahto Entertain the Half-Million Club-Captain Webb's Latest Freak. LOS ANGELES, Cal., April 14.— As the Tesult of some clever work on the part of detectives Auble and HawJey, John Thompson is in the City Jail charged with being a "feme" for burglars. The evi dence against him seems so strong that therecar.be fit tie doubt of his getting a long term in State prison. The capture of the man will explain many burglaries committed during the last six months in Southern California, principally in jew elry. The closest scrutiny has been kept on pawnshops and jewelry-stores, but rarely has any of the stolen property been recovered. It remained for a tomale-cart to reveal Thompson's crimes. The detectives no ticed that many ex-convicts seemed to be patrons of Johnson* tomale stand, and a close ...

BLACKER GROWS HE CLOUD OVER EMMANUEL BAPTIST CHURCH. Blanche Lamont's Body, Found in the Belfry. SHE WAS STRANGLED. Durrant Believed to Have Killed Her and Minnie Williams. ARRESTED AT WALNUT CREEK Minnie Williams' Purse tn His Pocket— He Declares He Is Innocent. In the presence of the crimes which have | been committed under the roof of the Bap- i tist Emmanuel Church the hardiest imagi nation recoils in dismay. Not one of the ; most terrible forms of degradation, j brutality, cruelty and deception are i found lacking in them. It is the | story of the murder of two conspicuously | bright, innocent and lovable girls, in which the hand of assassination seems to have been gloved by the most sa cred things — love for a man, confidence in the loftiness and purity of Christian faith and, possibly, reliance on the skill and honor of a physician. It was bad enough that these elements seem to have been act ive in the case; worse that the very sanct uary of infinite compassion should have be...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Financial Difficuities of the Exclusive Athenian Club. IT MIGHT BE DISBANDED. The Police Find No Trace of Reed's Assailants— Rosborough's Benefit. The Athenian Club, Oakland's exclusive en's social organization, is in a bad al way. Unless some of its wealthy members come forward with subscriptions and pay off the indebtedness, or money is by some other method, the elegant apartments where tho wit and wisdom of the Athens of the Pacific have been wont to gather and where wine and good-fellow ghip have mingled will soon be a thing of the past. Whether or not the club should sell its belongings and go out of existence was seriously debated at a meeting held on Saturday night last, and, while several schemes for putting new life into the club were propounded by the members present, the outlook was by all acknowledged to be dubious. The matter first came up when W. W. Foote, who was. np to the last election, president of the club, introduced the in coming officers. In...

12 EASTER IN THE CHURCHES The Easter lily adorned altar and pulpit yesterday. There was no church in.which the delicate flower, emblematic of all that is pure, was not seen in all its glory. It held prominence in the offerings of this great Christian festival. The day was serene. It was perfect spring weather, with a warm sun and a clear sky. The church bells rang out at early dawn and again at night, as though in unison, to greet the Savior, who the church teaches has on this day risen from the dead. The anniversary was celebrated with augmented services in all the Christian churches. There was an especially large outpouring of people, and fashion was in no wise neglected. Natty Easter bonnets and brilliant Easter costumes were promi nent at beautiful Easter devotions. Fash ionable congregations bowed in humble prayer before the altar of the Savior, who suffered death for the purification of man kind. At the Catholic and Anglican churches the services were especially elaborate, as ...
