Former Secretary of Peruvian Legation in Trouble Over Board Bill

Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 8 - Mrs. Louise Scott GARLAND and her husband, Senor Andro GARLAND, formerly secretary of the Peruvian legation at Washington, were arrested here today on the charge of disturbing the peace. The charge was preferred against them by their landlady, on account of a dispute over a board bill.
According to Mrs. GARLANDs story, she came to Los Angeles recently for the purpose of nursing her sister, Mrs. George BOOTH, at the Angelus Hospital. and took up quarters in a rooming house near the institution. Her husband followed, and it is said that they have been anything but companionable.

Deny the Charge.

Todays arrest was the climax, although both denied that they disturbed the peace, and declared that the landlady and her daughter created more of a noise than they in the dispute over the bill.
The incident adds another chapter in the affairs of the GARLANDs, about whom there was so much notoriety a year ago in June, when Washington society was stirred up over the stabbing of Senor GARLAND, supposedly by Col. Charles A. EDWARDS, of the Democratic campaign committee, with Miss SCOTT said to be at the bottom of the trouble.

Married Life Unhappy.

That her later married life to the Peruvian has not been all happiness, was evident today, when Mrs. GARLAND refused to furnish the required $50 bail for her husband, though her purse was said to be well filled with bank notes.
He can get out of this the best way he knows, but Ill not furnish his bail nor pay his fine, said she as the jail doors clanked behind her husband.
He never did anything for me, and we have not lived together since we were married in Washington. Trouble is all I have known since I met him. I came out here to nurse my sister and he followed. I am not going to tell my right name to the police because it is immaterial, and I do not desire to bring disgrace to myself.
