LUCEY'S DOCTOR BILL.
He Thought the City Physician Was
Working for Nothing.
Major Gett and Judeo Davis Have a
Sot-to—A Gambler's Misfortune—
Judge Henrj- Perploxcd.
In May of last year Edward Lucey, a
gambler, was run over by a railroad train
and had his legs badly mangled. Ho was
taken to the Receiving Hospital, where
City Physician Xiehols amputated the
crushed limbs and performod other med
When Lucey began to recover prepara
tions were made, as is the custom in such
cases, to have him removed to the County
Hospital. But the young man and his
friends objected to his going thore, and
pleaded with the doctor to have him cared
for at some private place. Dr. Xiehols
consented to take the case, and had Lucey
placed at the Ridge Home, a private hos
pital, where he treated hini daily.
Lucey's friends took up a collection of
several hundrod dollars, and placed £200
on deposit in a down-town saloon for the
USED UF THE MONEY.
Dr. Xiehols did not collect the money
immediately, however. When Lucoy re
covered sufficiently to partially enjoy
life again, he began to use up the $200,
until only £70 was left. Then tho maimed
man's friends warned the doctor that un
less he collected the money there would I
be none left. Dr. Xiehols, through his
attorney, W. A. Gett, Jr., attached the'
$70, and on yesterday the matter came up
for hearing in Justice of tho Peace Henry's
Dr. Xiehols gave the facts as he under
stood thorn whilo on the witness-stand,
and then Lucey told his story. The lat
ter said that he supposed all along that
the doctor was acting in his capacity of
City Physician. He did not know that
Dr. Xichol's free services ended when a
patient left the Receiving Hospital.
The doctor.on cross-examination, stated
that Lucey himself employed him, after
he left the Receiving Hospital, so there
could bo no excuse for his ignorance.
SOME I.WiAL TIL.TS.
During the hearing of the case there
were several amusing tilts between at
torney (iett and ex-Judge Davis, Lucey's
counsel. Each accused the other of
knowing no law nor anything else, and
would probably be at it yet had not Judge
Henry interfered and threatened to throw
the case out of court if they did not desist.
There was no otber testimony offered
except that given by Lucey and Dr.
Xiehols, and the case was submitted on
Judge Henry scratched his head in a
perplexed manner, and said he was at a
loss for an opinion in the matter inst

over and read up the statuto which fixes

A Delegation of Southern Indians Call
at the Governor's Offlce.
Five strapping Indians walked into
Governor Markham's oflice yesterday
and asked to see the Executive. The
attaches in the oflice lost their presence
of mind ibr a few moments at the sight of
the invading redskins, but finally re
gained their composure suiliciently to in
form the tanned visitors that the Gov
ernor was not in town.
Secretary Johnson mustered up enough
eoarage to ask them the object of their
mission, and they informed him that
they were a committee representing the
tribes on the Banning Reservation, in
the southern portion of the State, and
had tome to Sacramento to make a re
quest of Governor Markham.
Chief Cabizon Gervasio of Indio, San
Diego County, had been, they said, de
posed as tiie head of the tribes by Indian
Agent Rusk, because, thoy claimed,
Chief Cabizon had remarked that the
Agent was not doing liis duty properly.
They wanted the Governor to write to
the authorities ut Washington and ask
them to have the former chief reinstated.
Before departing the warriors left their
cards, as follows: Captain William Pablo
of Banning, San Bernardino County;
Chief Cabizon Gervasio of Indio, San
Diego County; Captain Matteo Sobos of
Gapicha Village, Pala, San Diego County;
Captain Jose Pachito of Puma Village,
Pa!a, San Diego County; Captain Veil
Palhawit of Sany Cidrb Village, War

They promised to call again, railroad
fare being cheap.
RUM AND MORPHINE.
The Ruin They Havo Wrought Upon a
Former Sacramento Girl.
In Judge Worley's court this morning,
says the San Francisco Post of last even
ing, sat two young women, pale and hag
gard, and groaning for want of opium.
They were sad sights as they sat wait
ing sentences for vagrancy and drunken
ness, as thoy begged piteously for "dope."
Alice Davis, with a bath and good
clothes, would pass muster almost any

Arlington on Saturday night last whilo
exhibiting herself in a nude condition on
Third street. She was crazed by the drug
that sho had used.
"Judge," she said, in a very clear voice,
"I have never been arrested before. I
am a married woman, and if you will
only let me go this time you will never
be troubled by my presence here again."
"Yes, but the officers know and testify
that you are a common drunkard and a
fiend," was the reply ofthe court.
"Won't you let me go just this time,
"No, I can't do it."

WHERE ARE THE POLICE?
Gross Indecency Practiced on the
Kiver Front Evory Day.
A large number of men and boys daily
bathe in the river between X and It
streets. They frequently behave in an
unseemly manner. They do not wear
bathing suits, and frequently expose
their persons in a disgusting and pur
posely indecent manner.
Passengers by the down river steamers
are insulted by these exposures, and on
Saturday last the offense was particularly
aggravating. The lumber and warehouse
men do their best to prevent these scenes,
but can succeed only partially.
If the police authorities would make an
examplo of some ofthe offenders who
havo not the decency to wear even bath
ing trunks, the nuisance would not be
continued. The practice of nude bathers
exhibiting themselves in this way is
against the law, and it behooves the
police department to detail an officer to
visit tho river front and look alter these
offenders against decency.
Ladiea cannot go out boating without
being grossly insulted by men and boys

A STATE MANSION.
Proposition To Erect a Residence
for the Governor.
It May Be Built by Citizens, Who Will
Tako Chances of Getting Thoir
The subject ot providing a suitable
home here for the Governor of the State
has been revived since the unfortunate
death of Governor Markham's little
daughter, Genevieve. Tne San Francisco
Post last evening, in an article on the
subject, says it has been conclusively
proved that the recent affiiction of
Governor Markham, the death of his little
daughter, was due to the defective plumb
ing ofthe house in which ho lived in this
"The lamentable occurrence," it says,
"has caused the question of the State
building a suitable gubernatorial resi
dence to be agitated with more vigor than
it has ever been before, and from the
present outlook it is more than probable
that individual citizens will take the mat
ter into their own hands."
It has been proposed by several repre
sentative citizens to erect a suitable resi
dence for the Governor by private sub
scription and then appeal to the next
Legislature to reimburse those who paid
for the structure.
The proposition has been favorably re
ceived by a good many people, and'it is
expected that some definite action will
soon be taken in tho matter.
Among those of Governor Markham's
friends who are earnestly in favor of car
rying the now idea into eflect is Colonel
In conversation on the subject Mr
Chadbourne said that it was about time
tliat the great *tate of California should
erect a building lit for the chief executive
to live in. The present condition of affairs
was simply disgraceful to a State of Cali
fornia's size and importance.
"A building which would meet all the
requirements of tho Governor is essenti
ally necessary, in my opinion," contin
ued Mr. Chadbourne.
"It should be so arranged that ho would
have a large dining-room and other
apartments necessary for public enter
tainments, and at tho same time contain a
Hutlicient number of rooms for tho resi
dence of the family of the Governor,
where they would be practically apart
from the rooms given up for use on pub
'The building should also be in eloso
proximity to the State Capitol. The Gov
ernor is liable to be called upon at auy
hour of the night to go to tho State Capi
tol, and he should reside in the neighbor
hood, if this movement to erect a Gov
ernor's mansion takes shape, as I hope it
will, I will cheerfully subscribe and help
in every way to make it a success."
Still It Was Not Oppressive.
