She is Annie Johnson, a Friendless
Stransrer Swedish Girl.
While a Domestic in the Family of Rev.
Dt. Eli Fay She Submits to Snowden
Under Promise of Marriage.
J. H. Snowden, charged with seduc
tion under promise of marriage, was on
trial yesterday in Department 1 before
a jury composed as follows: (1. (iris

Annie Johnson, a Swedish girl, who
was in the laundry at Bellevue Terrace
when Snowden was a cook in the estab
lishment, and who afterwards went to
live at Rev. Dr. Eli Fay's as a domestic,
is the girl. She was put on the stand
yesterday forenoon as soon as a jury" had
been impaneled, and told her story
pretty much as it was told in the lower
courts some months ago. Briefly as she
gave it in court it runs as follows:
She first met Snowden at the Bellevue
Terrace. He was a cook there and she
was employed in the laundry of /the
house. When they first met she was
displeased with him and did not care to
meet him, but he was very affable anil
so persistent with his attentions that she
could not get rid of him. While she was
at work he would come in and talk with
her; he was of a jealous disposition and
disliked to have anyone else speak to
her. She frequently asked him not to
be so attentive to her. When he could
not see her he would send her dishes of
strawberries and oranges and prepared
good dinners for her especial benefit.
He was lavish in his compliments and
said he was very fond of her and wanted
to marry her. She would reply that she
was not ready to marry; that she had
not given the subject thought. But he
continued his attentions, and at last she
began to grow fond of him. She soon
left Ihe Bellevue Terrace and went and
stopped with a family named Larsen, on
San Pedro street, near Seventh. There
be called upon her nearly every evening
and renewed his prayer for her to marry
him. She occupied a room, but he never
was in it hut twice. They usually sat
out on the porch or took walks.
After a short vacation she went to Dr.
Fay's house and entered upon her duties
as a domestic. Snowden continued his
attentions and renewed his proposals of
marriage. She consented. He said he
had a $10,000 ranch in New Mexico ; had
$600 in bank, and his father in Kansas
City was willing to give him $22,000.
His finances were such that he could
place her beyond the necessity of work.
After her consent to marry him be
urged that they assume the relations of
man and wife. She protested, declaring
that it was improper and a great sin.
He argued to the contrary; that it was
no violation of any law to act that way,
as they had pledged their love and were
in reality the same towanLeach other as
though they had passed through the
legal form of a marriage. At hist she
On cross-examination the girl said she
was 2:5 years old. She was raised in
Sweden, and came to America alxmt
twenty-one months ago. She came with
two brothers. Snowden had illicit inter
course with her first about three weeks
after she went to live at Dr. Fay's. This
was after he had made promises of mar
riage to her. He said he did not care
how soon they were married, that he
would leave that to her. He visited her
on San Pedro street nearly every evening
while she was there. She was there about
three weeks. He used to stay with her
until 10 or 11 o'clock. He accompanied
her to the when she went there,
and came again the next evening. On
the occasion that he was in her room lie
put his arms aliout her and caressed
her. IFe talked of marriage while she
was on San Pedro street sometimes.
She once heard a Mr. Hepburn, at
the Bellevue Terrace, say that
Snowden was a married man. She
paid but little attention to it at the
time, for ttie reason that she was not
then at all interested in Snowden.
Afterwards the defendant assured her
he was not married, and then she be
lieved him before all others. Her father
and mother are still in Sweden, her two
brothers in Kansas. She came to Los
Angeles in company with a girl she had
known at home in Sweden, who had
been to Los Angeles, and whom she met
in Kansas. She is back in Kansas now
with her own parents.
Doctor William Brill testified tbat
Snowden came to his office on the
morning of December 11, 1889, about ti
or 7 o'clock, and asked him to go with
him to see a servant-girl at Dr. Fay's,
who was ill. Snowden told the doctor
to go with him directly to the
girl's room, as the family was
still asleep. The doctor did so,
and found Annie Johnson suffering very
much. He asked her some questions
and concluded it was a case of miscar
riage. He asked her if she was married
and she said not. He then questioned Inl
and Snowden and they both said she
might be pregnant, but "Snowden put in
a very emphatic disclaimer as to any
responsibilty in the premises. He made
one examination and concluded she had
been pregnant, but was not sure; it was
very early in the period if co. About
this time Mrs. Fay made her appearance
and being made acquainted with the
facts she turned to Snowden and said:
"Charlie, you are responsible for this,
and if you do not'marry this girl at once
1 will shoot you." Snowden said that
was all right, that he would marry her
forthwith. Dr. Brill attended the girl
until she got. better.
Mrs. Harriet Kelsey Fay, the wife of
Rev. Dr. Fay, told how she came home
after marriage to Dr. Fay, August 7,
1889. She found Annie Johnson there
as domestic. "When she arrived Snow
den was there. From that on he came
constantly to the house to see Annie.
They sat together on the veranda or in
the kitchen. He used to stay until well
into the evening. This continued until
December 11. Annie was ill two or
three times just before that date. Mrs.
Fay was afraid that Annie would not be
able to do the work, at last, and Snow
den said he would cook until she got
well. He served for a few days in
the girl's place, until she got
well. Mrs. Fay went over the conversa
tion in Annie's room, when Dr. Brill was
there, just as the doctor told it. She

went to do so, but while Mrs. Kay was
busy for a minute he ran oft and never
Doctor Eli Fay told how Annie

to an inquiry at an intelligence office.
Be employed her. This was about three
| weeks before his wife came there.
Police Officer Bosqui told about the
I arrest <>f Snowden. Tbe warrant had
been given Bosqui. He was looking for
j him two or three days. One day be
! learned that during the evening Snow
den would come to Dr. Fay's to see
Annie, so Bosqui went to the house
I early and concealed himself in a small
(oom off the kitchen. Soon he heard
I footsteps, and then he stepped out and
i found the man leaning on the window
I talking to Annie, lie put him under
;at rest. Snowden did not want to go,
but after he got into the patrol wagon
,he said ii was all right; that he would
j soon get out of thja. He acknowledged
I his intimacy with the girl, but said
j several others were so, too. one of them
a "'nigger." Next day while in the
jail Snowden told Bosqui these parties
were all in town, but he did not know
just where. When the time for exam
ination came, be swore to a statement
regarding the "nigger," and gave his
name. On this a continuance was had.
but no search was sufficient to turn up
the "nigger." He never mentioned the
names of the two or threeoshers. When
arrested he was telling the girl he was
a married man.
The State rested at this point, and
Snowden took the stand in his own be
half. His defense was a general denial
of all excepting his intimacy with the
girl. He did not promise her marriage,
and he did not mislead her as to his not
being a married man. He denied flatly
the whole conversation with Bosqui,
and claimed that he visited the girl
solely at her solicitation.
On cross-examination he said Lucy
Fnss and Katie Blake, anil a boy named
Tom, and a lot of others w hose names he
did not know, had told Annie in his
presence that he was married. He got
badly twisted up in this, and when he
left the stand tbe defense rested without
putting on their witnesses to corrobo
The case was briefly argued, and at a
little after •"> the case went to the jury.
The jury stayed out a short time and
returned a verdict of guilty as charged.
REGULAR MEETING AT THE CHAM
BER OF COMMERCE.
A Large Addition to the Membership.
The Permanent Exhibit to Be Reg
ularly Decorated—Various Committees
The smaller hall of the Chamber of
Commerce was crowded with ladies of
ihe annex yesterday morning, who came
to attend the meeting of that organiza
tion. The institution started out with
a membership of fifty, and seventy-two
were added to the list yesterday, making
a total of 122.
A committee on constitution and by
laws was appointed, consisting of the
following ladies: Mrs. Amy C. Brown,
Miss Louise Jones, Mrs. Dr. Wilder,
Mrs. It. M. Widney and Mrs. George
Stoneman. The committee wili meet at
the chamber to begin work next Thurs
day morning at 10 o'clock.
Mrs. C. P. Bradrield, of the public
schools, offered a suggestion to the effect
that a display should be made in the
permanent exhibit of the work of all the
different grades of the schools in order
that visitors and the pnblic generally
might form an idea of the standing of
the educational institutions of this sec
tion. She was appointed the chairman
of a committee to report a definite plan
to carry out this idea.
It was decided that (lowers should be
brought every Monday for the decora
tion of the permanent exhibit. The
following committee was appointed to
attend to this work next Monday: Mrs.
.1. A. Anderson, Mrs. Emma Allen, Mrs.
C. M. Brown, Mrs. E. .1. Bradford, Miss
Mary Crawford and Mrs. A. \V. P.
A g I deal of discussion took place
over the question nf keeping the exhibit
open on Sunday. It seemed to be the
general view of the ladies that it would
receive a larger percentage of visitors on
that day than on any other, and that it
would be a good plan to keep it open.
A committee was appointed to attend
to the work of securing furniture lor the
rooms, which have been set aside forthe
use of the ladies, [t consists of the follow
ing ladies: Mrs. Dr. McDonald, Mrs. 11.
