May 2, 1908


Above, the daring "ladder thief" strikes at the Doheny residence on Chester Place (apparently named for Stanford student Chester Silent) ... Below, a fascinating tale of legal intrigue, tangled relationships and greed told in the story of a land baron's love child--and 3,000 acres in Santa Barbara County where oil was discovered ... Beulah Hawkins awakens after 85 days ... Six Navy destroyers arrive in San Pedro ... Mounted police pursue several cars after the drivers attempt to drive the Arrowhead road in San Bernardino that is restricted to horses ... Someone sabotages the streetcar tracks at 9th Street and Channing and nearly causes a bad accident ... And the Chamber of Commerce is asking for auto owners to loan their vehicles so visiting sailors can get a tour of Los Angeles.
