A Young Girl Becomes Un
conscious in a Car.
She is Taken to the Police
Station for Treatment.
A Man Picked Up Insensible Near the
Kail road Track.
It is Supposed that He Tried to Com
mit Suicide and Threw Himself in
Front of a Train.
About 0 o'clock last night a telephone ,
message was received at police heaCt
quarters that a young woman was either
drunk or sick at the Seventh-street
power house of the Ixis Angeles Cable
Railway Company. Sergeant Jeffries
and Officer Sanchez responded in the
patrol wagon, and on arrival at the
power house, found a young girl sitting
on one of the benches on Grand avenue
in an unconscious condition. At first it
was supposed that she was dead, but
she was conveyed to the city jail as
speedily as possible, and Dr. Wing was
summoned. After noting her symptoms
he came to the conclusion that she was
suffering from opium poisoning, but as
she began to rally and ultimately re
gained consciousness, he left her
in charge of Jailer Hare, in
the woman's department of the jail.
She told the officer that her name
was Pauline Clinton, that she was
17 years of age, and had left her home
and parents in Sacramento, because she
could not '"have as much fun at home"
as she did here. When questioned, she
denied having taken any drug or poison,
and stated that while skating at the
rink in Hazard's pavilion, she had fallen
on her neck, but did not remember any
thing after that. This story is corrob
orated to some extent, as she was seen
to get on a Seventh-street cable car on
Spring street early in the evening; hut
no eSn as to the cause of her uncon
sciousness could be ascertained.
About an hour after she had recovered
consciousness, she having in the mean
while been in excellent spirits, laughing
and talking gaily, Jailer Hare had occa
sion to leave her, and three-quarters of
an hour afterwards he was surprised to
hear her gasping for breath. Running
to the woman's cell he found her uncon
scious on the bed and apparently dying.
Dr. Lasher was summoned from the
Hollenbeck, and subsequently Dr. Mor
rison, the Police Surgeon, arrived, and
l>oth physicians worked with the pa
tient for several hours. Neither of the
doctors were, however, able to come to a
conclusion regarding the cause of the
It was hardly possible for her to have
taken poison during the period-she was
alone after Jailer Hare left her, and it is
most improbable that after recovery
from her first attack, the poison, if she
took any, would react in so strange a
manner. She had none of the symptoms
of poisoning and did not appear lo be
suffering any pain.
At 3 o'clock this morning the girl vast
still unconscious, and the doctors were
doing all in their power to prevent disso
lution. Her condition was very critical,
and death was liable to occur at any
A Man Picked Up Near the Railroad
Early yesterday morning two milk
men, while driving homewards, discov
ered the body of a man in an uncon
scious condition, lying close to the
Southern Pacific Railroad Company's,
track, near the East Lbs Angeles park.
Blood was flowing freely from wounds
on the man's face anil head, but as he
was still alive, the milkmen picked up
the injured man and carried him in
their wagon to the Fat<t Side station,
and, there being no one about, they car
ried the insensible form into the office
and left it there, driving away without
leaving any clue as to their identity.
Some time afterwards one of the East
Side patrolmen called at the station and
was considerably surprised to find what
he supposed to" be a dead man lying
there. He at once notified the officials
at headquarters, and the injured man
was conveyed to the station in the
patrol wagon by Sergeant Jeffries and
Officer Sanchez for medical treatment.
He*, was readily identified as Eugene
Destry, a Frenchman, with a rep
utation .as a member of the "mac"
brigade, and on being searched
the sum of $244.40 was found upon his
person. Dr. Wing was hastily sum
moned and Destry's injuries were at
tended to. They were found to consist
of an ngly seal]) wound, a long gash
extending from below the left eye up
wards fbr about six inches, and sundry
other bruises and cuts on the head. On
recovering consciousness Destry stated
that he resided at No. 344 Alameda
street and at 10 o'clock lie was taken
there at his own request, hut the woman
who occupied the place refused to allow
the officer to leave him there, and they
were compelled to take him back to the
station. He professes ignorance of the
affair, but it was subsequently ascer
tained that a sheep-herder named G.
Cullen, while driving a flock of sheep
along the road near the Southern Pacific
track, saw Destry deliberately step on to
the track in front of the "Cotton flyer,"
as it approached him, and that he saw
the cowcatcher strike him and knock
him off the track. Cullen was unable
to leave his herd, but he notified several
people of the affair. Prior to the acci
dent Destry had appeared to be dazed
and bid inquired the way to town from
several people, although he kept walk
ing away from the city. The Frenchman
is not considered to be dangerously hurt,
as no bones were broken.
A Small Boy Thrown Out, but Not
About 0 o'clock yesterday morning,
the little nine-year-old son of S. C.
Stevenson met with an accident, which
fortunately did not prove very serious.
While holding the lines of Mr. Whalen's
butcher wagon, on Orange street (the
butcher being absent), the horse took
fright and ran away, and in turning a
corner, after running a block, the wagon
ran over a large stone, throwing the
little fellow out, overturning and smash
ing the wagon considerably. The boy
was picked, up by a passing teamster
and carried into a house close by. He
was thought to be badly hurt, and was
