Destructive Fire Caused by a Can of
A Clerk's Proseneo of Mind Prevents
an Explosion—Chief Guthrio W ants
Protection for Ills Men.
If anybody had entertained a doubt as
to the dangerous character of gasoline,
the lire that occurred yesterday at Cham
berlin <k Milliken's store, on X street, be
tween Sixth and Seventh, must have
It was a red-hot lire, and completely
eutted tho stove and crockery store from*
stem to stern—from the front doors to the
rear ones on the alloy, IGO feet away.
There was not much saved from the
stock of goods, only a few light articles
that were taken from the salesroom in
front out upon the sidewalk.
The fire started in the rear of the store,
and in an instant tho place was in flames.
It seems that W. F. Pfund and one of the
employes were there handling cans of
gasoline. Pfund took hold of a can by
the handle and was lifting it from the j
floor when it burst in flames. With great i
presence of mind, and at the risk of his
Lie, he grabbed up the burning can and
dashed it out into the alley.
In tho mean time the burning fluid
spread and communicated with that of
other cans. Near by was an iron barrel,
or drum, containing upward of 100 gal
lons, but before it was endangered the
two men rolled it through the building
into the alley and to a place of safety.
Chief Engineer (Juthrie was just ap
proaching the corporation house, on the
alley, at the end of the block, and saw
the "burning can when it was thrown out.
He sent in an alarm at once, and the de
partment soon had streams of water
Souring into the blazing building from
oth front and rear. But the lire was
burning with such rierecness that most of
tiie woodwork and stock was ruined be
fore the flames could be quenched.
The building is a one-story brick, just
west of tin- one recently occupied by S. S.

announced that after consultation with

THEY WANT GUM HO.
A Determined Fight Being Made by
The Girl is Discharged on a Writ of
Habeas Corpus, But Is Immedi
ately Arrested Again.
The scramblo lor the possession of Gum
110, tho pretty Chinese girl who recently
escaped to this city from Colusa, where
she had been compelled to live a life of
shame by her owners, was resumed in
tho Superior Court yesterday before
Judge Van Fleet.
The Rirl had been stolen from her own
ers in Yisalia (who, by the way, had im
ported her from China as a slave), and
had been taken to Colusa. There she was
put through the formality of a marriage
with a Chinaman whom she never saw
before. Sho was then turned over to
Horn Duck, tho slave-owner, who en
gineered the job to steal her. The object
of having the girl married was to prevent
her former owners from taking her again.
When the girl ran away from < olusa
steps wore taken by the slave-owners to
ret-over her, ;is. being comely, sho was
considered a valuable chattel. A war
rant was sworn out for her arrest by her
alleged husband, charging her with em
bezzling some of his jewels.
The girl was endeavoring to make her
way to the Mission in Han Francisco,
where sho could be protected and cared
for by'the philanthropic ladies wh i have
charge of that place, but was arrested
hen 1. The ladies came to her assistance,
and a writ of habeas corpus was peti
tioned for. There was a partial hearing
of the matter several days ago, and on
yt st< rday it was concluded. An immenso
crowd of Chinese filled the courtroom,
and were greatly interested in the case.
The slave-owners were there too.
Charles T. Janes, who appeared as at
torney for the girl, proved by Justice of
tlie Peace Liening of Colusa that the girl
was married, and the girl v Btified to the
same thing. The girl also testified that
she did not give her consent to the issu
ing of the warrant lor her arrest.
.Mr. Jones th. n asked for the discharge
of the girl on the ground that under the
law husband nor wile can proceed or ap
pear in court against each other except
where cither has committed an act of
violence upon the other.
Attorney Blanchard, who appeared for
the other side, disputed this, and read
some law on the subject.
After quite a lengthy argument by both
Bides, Judge Van bleet granted the. writ,
and discharged the girl.
The girl was scarcely outside the court
room door when tho Colusa officers, who
were heru to take her back, served an
other warrant on her. She was charged
again with embezzlement, but this time
the names of two other Chinese appeared
as the complaining witnesses, and not tho
Attorney Jones had suspected just such
a move, and had his papers ready, lie
rushed luck into Judge Van Fleet's
court, and had another pi titkm for a writ
of habeas corpus signed, and made re
The haste on Mr. Jones'part was to
prevent the slaveholders from bailing the
girl our. In this case they could take
possession of her and hide her. Then,
when the date of trial came up, they
would have the case dismissed, because
of tho "absence of witnesses whoso
whereabouts are unknown," and thus
free themselves from the liability of for
feiting the bail.
It is an old trick of the slaveholders,
and one that has been worked success
fully very often.
The fight will be taken up again to-day.

lie had been placed in about the same
position that the Colusa officers, who are
here now, occupy at present.
<>n Monday last Constable Brissi 1 ar
rived in Los Angeles with a Chinaman
from this city named Leone Sing. The
officer promptly reported at police head
quarters, where he stated he had a war
rant for the arrest of a Chinese woman
named Soon Lee, on a charge of grand
larceny. The complaining witness was
a Chinaman at Sacramento named Ah
Lung, and it had been represented to the
authorities at Sacramento that it was a
"straight case." Mr. Brissel s.-iid that he
did not want to lend himself to any un
derhand practice, and when the status of
affairs in Chinatown in Los Angeles was
laid before him, said if he found it was a
job he would have nothing to do with it.
Chief Glass then detailed Detective
Auble to assist Brissel, and taking the
Sacramento Chinaman with them to iden
tify the woman, they proceeded to China
town. They entered one of the houses,
when the strange heathen promptly
pointed out the Best-looking inmate, a
woman known as Toy Soon, as the guilty
party. As soon as 'this was done, the
officers were thoroughly convinced that
it was simply a blind to get possession of
the woman, who was known to be the
wife of Wong Chien. she having been
legally married to him at Fresno, for
which she had a certificate.
The arrest wa> made about noon, and
it was the intention of the officer to leave
with his prisoner on the L:35 train, but on
the representations of the local officers he
took the woman togthetCity Prison until
the matter could be investigated.
By this time the news of the arrest had
spread throughout Chinatown. The
heathens were in; a state of highi excite
ment, and in a short time a large delega
tion, headed by Wong Chee and the hus
band of the woman, put in an appear
ance at the Police station.
In the meantime the District Attor
ney's office had been communicated with,
and on the representations of Police ("ni
cer Bevan and others, a writ of habeas
corpus was at once applied for, and Dis
trict Attorney Ryan of Sacramento noti
fied by wire of the facts in the case. The
woman was then taken before Judge Mc-
Kinley, but as he was engaged the hear
ing was continued until Tuesday, the
prisoner being released on 1300 cash bail,
which was promptly deposited.
Monday evening Constable I'rissel re

From tho fact that the woman is the
wife of a member of the company "which
is opposed to Wong Ark, who was on
trial in Los Angeles for murder, tho offi
cers were of opinion that the attempt to
get possession of the woman Avas for the
purposo of intimidating the Chinese to
prevent them from giving evidence in
the murder trial. At any rate, it was tho
general opinion that had the woman been
got out of the city she would never have
reached Sacramento, as she would have
been intercepted at some point on the
road and got out of the hands of the
oliicers on some trick, as has been done
in other cases.
The Constable did not bring the woman
with him, as she was released on a writ
of habeas corpus. It was alleged in tho
writ that the matter was simply an at
tempt to get possession of the woman.

ROBBED BY HIGHBINDERS.
A Chinese Woman the Victim—Three
Last night a Chinaman appeared at tho
the Police Station and swore out warrants
charging Fong Ah Him, Fon Ah Lucy
and Fong Ah Moy with robbery. He
said they had assaulted and robbed B
Chinawoman of her money, and even
nulled her ear-rings from her ears.
Three officers were detailed to go with
the Chinaman, who promised to point
out the robbers. He identified the three
men named, and they were arrested.
When they were searched by Police
Clerk Clark portions of a broken" pair of
ear-rings were found in the purse of one
of the prisoners, which gives color to tho
