What He Had to Say About
A Story Which Was Not Be-
lieved in Court.
The Testimony Fails to Connect
Harris with the Case.
The Judges Decide That the Charges Were
Untrue, and That the Evidence Did
Not Sustain Them.
Yesterday Judges Cheney ami Mc-
Kinley sat all day long as committing
magistrates to hear testimony in connec
tion with the story told the other day by
ti. W. Bush, now awaiting sentence for
burglary, which story alleged that C.
Jennings and Emil Harris, the detect
ives, have kept him and his pal, Clarke,
out stealing for their l>enefit. This is
the second time this matter has cropped
out. Not long ago Policeman Auble
swore out a complaint charging Jennings
with receiving stolen goods. Justice
Austin held an examination, and Auble
failing utterly to prove anything, Jen
nings was discharged. Tbe story of the
burglars, Bush and Clarke, is substan
tially the same as that of Auble.
When the ease was opened yesterday
Deputy Hardesty, of the District Attor
ney's office, appeared for the State,
and W, T. Williams and Henry
Edelman for the defense. A
large contingent of constables, police
officers, detectives and Sheriff's deputies
were on hand to hear the testimony.
The examination began by placing
Mrs. Mary A. Kimball on the stand,
who testified as to her house being en
tered by burglars on the afternoon or
evening of February Ist. The lady also
identified a gold ' necklace that" was
taken upon that occasion, being tho one 1
that Bush claims he handed over to !
I. B. Cohn, the pawnbroker, testified
that Jennings pawned the article in
question at his place.
Bush was then put on tbe stand, and
told his story, which was given verbatim
in the Herald when he gave it before
Judge Cheney voluntarily the other
day. He said he told this story first to
Officers Auble and Bowler. Tlie Chief
may have been present. He told
Hardesty when he was in the
jail, and Hardesty suggested that
he tell it before the court when he
should come before it. He said he lived
at the house of Emil Harris after he
had done a good deal of stealing and
after he had been in jail for crime.
Jennings knew he was going to burglar
ize some place on the night the Kimball
place was robbed. He got Bush a dark
lantern, or tried to do so. He went all
over the stojry of Jennings pawning the
"watch, chain", etc.
iB. Cohn, tf l *? pawnbroker, was
• Sailed and identified tne stuff jYniilrtgs
brought to him between February 13th
and 18th laßt. He jraVe J*ftwn tickets
for them irt the name of G. W. Bush.
Fred. C. Smith, the constable, testi
fied that about February 20th, or a tittle
later, Jennings told him all about this
pawned stuff and said he was working
Bush in the hope of learning where the
watch stolen from Governor Waterman
was. Smith and Jennings held a con
sultation as to how far it was safe to go
in pawning stuff supposed to be gotten
by theft in order to lead the thieves into
a trap where they could be caught.
James Clarke was called by the prose
cution, to tell about the sale of tbe
chain. He and Bush met Jennings and
gave him the chain to sell. He wanted
to get acid to test it, and after this be
sold it for $2.50. He gave tbe money to
Mrs. Kimball was recalled by the
prosecution, and identified the stuff
stolen from her house when it was bur
glarized February Ist. She lost every
thing. The ring was worth $20, a brace
let worth $50, a pin worth $80, earrings
worth $150, were all taken. They were
all solitaire diamonds. "Besides the rob
bers took $40 or $50 in coin. She identi
fied ail shown to her in tbe court.
Here tlie court recalled Bush, to make
him tell a good deal he had concealed
before. He had stated tbat Jennings
and Harris would not give him
money enough to enable him to
ge. out of the country. Before
the court got done with him it cropped
out that he got $12.50 in money, $10 for
the bracelet, $12 for the earrings and
other sums. Some of the jewelry be
said bad been lost, and some of it, the
diamond earrings, he says he gave
Captain Anderson, Deputy Sheriff* at
San Pedro, testified that about February
20th Jennings had told him all about
this stolen stuff and where it was, and
that he was working Bush, in the hope
of getting Waterman's watch, stolen at
I. Cohn testified to seeing Jen
nings pawn the chain at I. B.
Conn's. He thought the chain in evi
dence the one.
J. F. Burns, ex-Chief of Police, testi
fied that Jennings told him at divers
times between February 7tb and 2d
about these pawned goods, and that he
was trying to catch Bush or Clarke for
the Waterman watch.
Jennings went on and told his own
story. He is a detective for Harris &
Metzler, and a deputy constable. He
has been with Harris five or six months.
He has lieen an officer live or six years.
He was a deputy under Sheriff Kays.
He first met Bush about six weeks ago.
He came to Jennings on the street and
asked if there was a reward for the re
turn of Waterman's watch. Jennings
said he thought so, and arranged to
meet Bush next day. Bush told him he
thought he might get it. After this
they met frequently, and then Bush
asked him to pawn the things. He said
he got them from his girl, and wanted
to pawn thetn, not sell them. Thieves
are generally in a hurry to sell
stolen goods. Jennings pawned these
articles. He went to their room to test
the chain in the hope of getting at Borne
other plunder tbat might be there, but
failed to induce them to show any more.
Hti gave them all Cohn gave him,
and the pawn tickets. He said he went
to Conn's and the drug store to ask for
the lantern, not with the intention of
getting one, but to keep them on the
string. He gave the officers from time
to time all he could learn about these
boys. He' never pawned any other
articles at Cohn's, nor sold any, although
he had been a clerk in tbe place.
Auble and Bowler were put on, and
swore they would not believe
Bush under oath. They had sworn
the same thing before in the Doc
Dowling trial. Several people were put

on to testify to Jennings's good reputa
tion. Emil Harris said he did not know
who Bush was w hen be took him to his
home, that he knew him by tbe name
of McDonoboe, and tbat while at bis
house Bush bad not committed any
crime. Auble swore Bush had commit
ted burglaries while at Harris's house,
but be failed to mention one of them.
Judge McKinley gave the tirst opinion-
He said that the statements of the two
' convicted thieves seemed to be quite
I without corroborative evidence from the
outside, and against the testimony of the
witnesses who had Iveen beard. They
! would not stand. Judge Cheney said
that no case had been made against the
detectives. They were therefore all dis

Colonel Hotvland's Illness.
Colonel C. H. Howland has been con
fined to his bed the past week with a
serious illness. It was the culmination
of a long ailing from la grippe, which
formed a swelling of the head and face
and ended in a severe abscess at the ear,
which has been'not only painful, but
dangerous. He is now, it is thought,
slowly recovering, and hopes lo be out

NO CHANGE IN FREIGHT RATES OR
FARES IN PROSPECT.
The Transcontinental Association Seems
to Be Acting Harmoniously—Miscel
laneous Matters of Interest—Personal
The people who, a couple of weeks
ago, when the first cut in passenger rates
took place, were vociferously declaring
that a fierce rate war was alxmt to begin,
have gradually become silent. There
has been no increase on the first cut,
and the prospect is now that when any
change in the present schedule is made
it will be rather in tbe way of restoring
the old rates. This cannot be done
without a ten days' notice, and as no
road has entered this notice the present
rates will maintain for at least ten days
more. The Transcontinental Associa
tion, instead of breaking up, appears to
be iv a more sojjd. shape than ever. The
tact seems to be that there is no likeli
hood of a rate war either on freight or
passenger business as long as business
continues as light as it is at present.

TO HELP WORKINGMEN.
What Mr. Humphreys Thinks Would
be a Good Plan.
Mr. Joseph Mesmer and others went
out a few days ago to collect money with
Which to put unemployed workingmen
into a way of earning a living. The sub
scriptions did not swell to a large sum.
The list was then turned over to W. H.
Workman and John F. Humphreys, to
see what could be done. Mr. Humphreys
was seen by a Herald reporter in regard
to the project, and he developed this
plan as a good one: Money is scarce,
but a great many people have lots that
are not readily salable. Instead of
money, let these people put in a cheap
lot. Make a list of these, and let the
Chamber of Commerce take hold of the
matter and hold an auction at the court
house some day and sell all the property
subscribed. With this money take a
number of families as far as it will go
and put working people who do not
find employment on small pieces
of property. Get an old plug of a horse,
for rent or otherwise, get a cow and a
tent, and let the family go out and raise
something for home use and the market.
Many people have patches of unused
land which might be leased to such fam
ilies at a nominal rental.
That is Mr. Humphreys's plan, which
he thinks might be made practical. It
is plain that every family so helped will
thereafter be able to take care of itself,
and that at the same time it will be do
ing a benefit to the community.
The Hellman Benefaction.
Bishop Mora complains that a misun
derstanding appears to have sprung up
in some quarters in regard to the bene
faction recently given by I. W. Hellman
to the Catholic orphan asylum from the
Briswalter estate. Tbe gift was in the
form of real estate, and not money, and
it was promptly turned over by the
Bishop to the Sisters' orphan asylum in
Boyle Heights. The Bishop has been
somewhat annoyed by people calling
upon him who supposed that the sum of
$5,000 cash had been placed in his hands
for miscellaneous charitable purposes.
The property was given to him merely
that he might transfer it to the Sisters.

The Meeting of the Citrus
The Surplus Set Aside for the

The Ladies' Annex to the Chamber of
Commerce—The Prosecution Closes
in the Castac Case.
The executive committee of the State
Citrus Fair held its final meeting ves
i terday. Those present were Richard
j Gird, managing directoi ; C. M. Wells,
and Eugene Germain of Los Angeles;
F. Edward Gray, Alhambra: Frank A.
Milier. Riverside; •). K. McComas, Po
mona, and 11. K. Snow, Tustin.
The treasurer, Mr. Germain, reported
receipts. H.' 5 27.5»7; expenses, 12,836.97;
leaving a surplus of $1,001. In consid
eration of the fine displays made by Al
hambra, Pomona and Duarte as local
ities, and Orange, Ventura and Santa
Barbara as counties, the committee voted
an award of a diploma to each for excel
j lent display of citrus fruits.
1 The following resolution was adopted:
Ruolved, That any surplus on hand
after all expenses are paid from ihe late
citrus fair, be placed in a savings insti
tution, at interest, to be kept as a nu
cleus for ihe formation of a fund to be
need to represent the citrus fruit inter
est* of the Sixth Congressional district
at the Chicago World's Fair. It was
j Rewired, That tbe committee recom
mend that any surplus thai may ftCCTtte
from any further citrus fair, held in the
district, be added to this fund for the
same purpose. It was also
Retotvea, Tbat the citrus fair surplus
placed at interest for the purpose named
be subject to the control of this citrus
fair executive committee, as trustees.
A resolution was also adopted that it
is the sense of the committee that the
next State Citrus Fair, under the
auspices of the State Board of Agricult
ure, should be held in Los Angeles city,
this being the commercial center for all
Southern California, and the only point
from which proper benefit can" he de
rived for the citrus fruit-growing inter
ests, for the advancement of which the
State appropriations were made.
An unanimous vote of thanks was ten
dered Captain F. Edward Gray forthe
efficient and intelligent manner in which
he superintended and managed the fair.
The committee held a long session,
from 10 o'clock in the morning until 3 in
the afternoon. There was great diver
sity of opinion as to the disposition of
the surplus, and it took a great deal of
talk to decide the matter to the satisfac
tion of all,
THE BIG HOTEL.
Mr. Denker Once More Has Some Hope
When Mr. A. H. Denker gets an UWa
in his head he never lets it rest until he
accomplishes if. If in great hotel project
is not dead, but only taking a rest.
There is some hope that a revival of it
may be seen before very long. This
hope is made the greater by the report
of the building of a hotel in the City of
Mexico to cost $2,000,000. Los Angeles
is a better theater for such an enterprise
than the City of the Aztecs.
Last winter a gentleman from London,
the agent of a great English syndicate,
was here looking over the country, ana
he and Mr. Denker had an interview in
regard to the hotel. The stranger looked
carefully over the site and the plans and
went away not unfavorably impressed.
And this is very natural. The English
capitalists have put in $208,000,000 into
American enterprises in the last year or
two. The figures are from a carefui esti
mate made recently by the New York
Sun. Henry Villard is credited with
putting a million of English capita! tit
this present time into the condensed
milk and cheese business around St.
Paul and Minneapolis. Now, there is
this to look at in these investments in
American breweries and other plants.
They have been built up during a long
series of years by slow degrees and
piecemeal. Most of the plants are
things of shreds and patches. The
money is paid to people who are skilled
in the business and who have the
run of the trade of the section.
There is nothing to hinder these people
from taking the English money, putting
up a brand new plant from turret to
foundation-stone, with the newest and
best machinery known to this day, and
knocking the new purchasers out every
In the case of such a thing as our
hotel there is no such risk. The man
who builds it will have the field to him
self for a long series of years to come,
probably forever. Los Angeles has a
name all over the world for the salubri
ous climate and the charming scenery
with which nature has endowed her. A
great hotel, with all modern conven
iences and luxuries, would attract tbe
very best tourist trade of the world.
Daring severe winters at the East
thousands and tens of thousands
of people come here to spend
the winter. Tbey came when hotel
accommodations were very indiffer
ent in Los Angeles. How then would it
be with a hostelry, first-class in all re
spects and on a scale that would allow
of a perfect service at lowest profitable
rates? Lender such circumstances there
ought to be no risk as to such an affair

THE CASTAC CASE.
Examination of Witnesses for the
The preliminary examination into the
Castac cation case was resumed before
Justice Austin yesterday morning for the
fourth time. Dr. Granville McGowan
was called by the prosecution and testi
fied to having held a post-mortem ex
amination upon the bodies of Cook and
Walton, at the request of the Coroner,
on March Ist. He then detailed tbe
result of bis examination, and identified
a bullet which was offered in evidence
as tbe one he had abstracted from the
body of the deceased, Dolores Cook.
The next witness was Mac Pyle, a
rancher, who testified that he picked up
a number of cartridge shells from the
road in front of the cabin from which
Chormicle anil Gardner fired, after they
had left the place. Mrs. Cook,
the wife of one of the dead
men, was called, but the court
ruled that her testimony was immate
rial, and at this juncture the prosecu
tion rested its ease.
Sheriff Reilly, of Ventura county,
was called by the defense and testified
that the defendants, Chormicle and
Gardner, surrendered themselves to
him voluntarily. He also stated that
he bad know n W. C. Chormicle for sev
eral years, and that his general reputa
tion for peace and quietness in the com
munity in which he resided was good.
P.. Rose, an old-time resident of the
Castac cafion, was then put upon the
stand for the purpose of establishing
Chormicle's right to the land upon
which Walton insisted upon trespassing
after being warned by the former.
While he was being examined court ad
journed, and the ease was continued
until Tuesday morning next.
