Small Accident on the Re
dondo Branch Line.
Three Passenger Cars Get Off
Strikers and Non-Strikers Among
Result of the Recent Action of the Order.
The Purohase of the St. Louis and
San Francisco Line.
A slight accident occurred on the
Eedondo beach line of the Southern
California road yesterday morning. No
one was injured and very little damage
was done, but the road was blocked for
the rest of the day.
The first train in the morning leaves
Los Angeles at 9:05. It was well filled
with passengers. As it was running be
tween Burwell and the beach about four
miles this side of Redondo, one of the
trucks of the tender jumped the track.
The combination car which was attached
to the tender and the two coaches which
made up the rest of the train bumped
together and their trucks left the track.
The train was running at a moderate
rate of speed and it came to a sudden
halt. The passengers were a little
shaken up but no one was injured.
They left the train and walked to Re
dondo, but when the time came to return
the track was still obstructed. The Redon
do Beach Railway Company thereupon
came handsomely to the rescue and
honored the tickets of the Southern
California line. The passengers all re
turned to the city by the Redondo Beach
line none the worse in any way for the
The overland on the Santa F£ was ten
hours late yesterday, delated by the ac
cident to the freight train on the At
lantic and Pacific at Albuquerque.
The recent action of the Order of Rail
way Conductors in deciding by a vote of
210' to 66 to repeal the clause in the con
stitution prohibiting strikes is likely to
have some effect on the growth of the
Brotherhood of Railway Conductors, the
organization which was founded in this
city about two years ago and which
held its first annual convention here
last fall. The Brotherhood had
its origin in the fact that the
order was unable by the terms of its con
stitution to go into strikes. It enrolled
in its membership at the start most of
the conductors who were running on the
coast lines. Its growth throughout the
east was rapid, and there was a lively
probability that in a short time it would
have taken away a large percentage of
the members of the older order.
This sudden change of front on the
part of the order is likely to result either
in the stopping of its growth, or in the
consolidation of the two organizations.
It is not improbable that the latter will
be the final outcome, although as the
founders of the brotherhood are very en
thusiastic over the success of their
scheme, they may not favor going back
into the old order.
A large number of the representatives
who voted against the motion to repeal
the prohibition of strikes left the con
vention, and the bodies which they rep
resented declaie their intention of with
drawing from the order. In case they
do so, there will be a third organization
started on the old principle of "no
A recent number of the Railway Age
gives the following interesting comment
on the consolidation of the Santa Fe and
the St. Louis and San Francisco:
The most important consolidation of
railway interests which has taken place
in a long time is that just effected in the
purchase by the Atchison, Topeka and
Santa Fe Railroad Company of the abso
lute control of the St. Louis and San
Francisco railroad. The two companies
have long been equal partners in the
Atlantic and Pacific road, running from
a junction with the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe near Albuquerque, N. M.,
west to Mojave, Cal., 927 miles, but the
joint ownership has not been harmon
ious. The St. Louis and San Francisco
people claimed that the Atchison com
pany was receiving the larger share of
the benefits of the arrangement, and the
former had for some time threatened to
build an extension from its terminus at
Sapulpa, I. T., west to Albuquerque and
thus secure direct connection with the
Atlantic and Pacific independent of the
Santa Fe, over whose track the traffic of
the St. Louis and San Francisco to and
from the Pacific coast is now carried on
between Burton, Kan., and Albuquerque,
N. M., a distance of 700 miles. The
construction of the threatened extension
to Albuquerque would cut off a large
■amount of business from the Atchison,
and would involve the building of some
600 miles of road through an unpeopled
and for the most part an unpromising
country, and as the purchase by the
Atchison Company of the St. Louis and
San Francisco has probably prevented
the construction of that line, it has
saved the unnecessary expenditure of a
vast amount of money.
The St. Louis and San Francisco Com
pany now operates 1,441 miles of road.
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
Company owns, operates and controls
7,119 miles, and the consolidation of the
two companies gives the enormous mile
age of 8,560 miles, making by far the
greatest railway system that has
yet been known. The purchase
brings the Atchison company into St.
Louis and makes that city the terminus
of one arm of a great transcontinental
line. A branch of the Atchison's line
from Chicago already reaches to within
about 140 miles of St. Louis, and it
seems quite likely that this gap will now
be filled, when the Atchison will have
quite a direct line from Chicago to St.
Louis and thence, by means of the St.
Louis and San Francisco's line to Paris,
Texas, will secure a considerably more
direct route to a connection with the
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe line than it
now has by way of Kansas City and the
Southern Kansas line. Other advantages
to the Atchison Company from this pur
chase are evident by a study of the map
and there is no reason now apparent
why the consolidation should be adverse
to the interests of the public. At the
same time there is a natural fear of such
gigantic aggregations of capital and
power, and every move of this kind will
doubtless be met by greater watchful
ness and more stringent legislation on
the part of the people.
A Suggestion From One Who Has
Suffered by Long Delay.
Editors Hkrald—Every one who has
had experience of the "law's delay"
will doubtless hail with delight any im
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 2, 1890.
provement upon the present methods of
litigation; but I imagine very few will
take kindly to the suggestion offered at
the recent meeting of the State Bar
Association, to establish an appellant
court through which all cases must pass
before reaching the supreme court.
With only two courts it requires from
three to five years to reach a final ad
justment of any case of great impor
tance, and if there were a third the time
would probably be extended to seven,
possibly ten years. I myself have had
everything I possess involved for the
past three years in a lawsuit, and, not
withstanding there have been two de
cisions of the supreme court and one of
the lower court in my favor, lam told
by my attorneys that it will be at least
another year before the matter is settled
beyond appeal. All of this, too, on a
mere legal technicality in the face of the
fact that my equity was so clear and un
mistakable that any intelligent, honest
man would have decided the case in ten
Under these circumstances it is but
natural that I should give the matter of
our judicial system (or lack of system)
a good deal of thought, and the result
has been that I have formulated a sys
tem that, I am satisfied, has very many
advantages over that now in use, the
chief of which are the following:
First. In every case a speedy decision
will be reached, and, in at least half of
them, the decisions will be just.
Second. It will greatly lessen the
cost of litigation and to a great extent
prevent crime, for the certainty that
punishment would be meted out to at
least half of tbem, would have a very
salutary effect upon the criminal
Third. It would greatly reduce the
number of courts and abolish the office
of that insatiable vampire, the court re
I would have in every county two de
partments, civil and criminal, but so
expeditiously would the business be
disposed of that in all, except three or
four of the most populous counties, one
judge would be able to preside over both
departments. As is the case now, a
man would need to have no special
knowledge of the law to make him
eligible to the oflice of judge. In addi
tion to the judge and clerk, the only
other adjuncts of the- court would be a
blind boy and a lottery wheel. In the
wheel of the civil department there
would be one hundred cards of equal
size, on fifty of which would be printed
the words "For the plaintiff," and on
the others the words "For the defend
ant." In the wheel of the criminal de
partment fifty of the cards would have
printed on them the words "Not
guilty," and the others the word
"Guilty." The court being in session,
when a case was called by the clerk
the blind boy, after revolving
the wheel rapidly a few times,
would thrust in his hand and draw out
a card; when this was handed to the
judge be would announce, "For the
plaintiff," "For the defendant,"
"Guilty" or "Not guilty," as was indi
cated by the card which had been
drawn. The clerk having entered the
finding would proceed to call the next
case. As fifteen minutes would afford
ample time for the trial of any case, one
judge would be able to dispose of at
least fifteen cases a day, or three hun
dred per month. In this way every
case could be tried within twenty-four
hours after it was placed on the docket.
I would of course provide for appeals,
but the supreme court would be similar
to the lower court in its method of
transacting business, and as each of its
two departments could try three hun
dred cases per month they would never
be behind. Thus there would be no
possibility of any case lingering in the
courts more than a week or ten days.
In addition to the advantages that I
have already enumerated, I think the
knowledge that such speedy justice (or
retribution) will be accorded them will
deter many from "going to law."
I am aware that the plan will in a
great measure take away the occupa
tion of the "legal fraternity," but I
contend that if need be the state can
support them as pensioners for much
less than is now paid them for "obstruct
The jury, tbat "grand bulwark of
criminal liberty," I would relegate to
the limbo land of the lost and un
lamented, as the grandest illusion of any
All candid persons who have taken
note of the defects and abuses of our
present system, the purchase of courts
and the bribery of juries, must at once
recognize the great superiority of the
one I have described above, but even
this is open to abuses, for the judge might
be bought or the blind boy educated to
distinguish the difference between the
feeling of a "guilty" and a "not guilty"
card. I am making still further im
provements, and hope that before the
next meeting of the legislature I shall
be able to perfect a "slot-and-nickle"
machine that will dispense with the,
judj>e and the blind boy.
If I am successful with this latter im
provement, the plaintiff, by dropping a
twenty-dollar gold piece into the ma
chine with his complaint, may at once
receive the judgement of the court.
As the Herald is a progressive jour
nal, I shall hope to have the weight of
its influence in procuring the adoption
of the above. Yours truly, Simplex.
NO SPECTACULAR WEDDINGS.
And Consequently There Are No More
Spectacular weddings are going out,
says the London Truth. A reason for
this change is the remote possibility of
the nuptial benediction being the
preface to a divorce-court suit. So
many divorces dans le high life have
either taken place or are being peti
tioned for that marriage is no longer a
guarantee for security. Why make a
fuss about a slip-knot, and particularly
when the fuss must cost a deal of
money? Two young, lovely and
wealthy princesses, one of whom
is of Anglo-American and the
other of Portuguese birth, are
about to invoke Saint Naquet.
The former has been married a little
more than a year, and is devoted to the
fine arts. The other is hardly out of her
honeymoon. She married the grandson
of Maria Louisa, queen of Ferdinand
VII of Spain, and is not pleased with

less to lavish money on trousseaus.

The Strains Contradict the Placentia
About a week ago an article pub
lished in the Anaheim Gazette was re
printed in the Herald, in reference to
the Societas Fraternia at Placentia.
The article contained a statement rela
tive to the alleged conduct of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Strain. The last issue of
the Gazette publishes the following let
ters from Mr. and Mrs. Strain :
Editor Gazette—ln your issue of last
week, under the heading of "A Wayside
Scrap," my name and that of my family
are brought into unnecessary and un
truthful prominence. The whole tale is
a vile fabrication, a tissue of falsehoods
held together by a thread of truth suffi
cient to deceive the unwary, and tickle
the the palate of the scandal-mongers.
Looking over the sentences I see not
one in which I am referred to that is not
false, and to reply separately would take
up too much space, but to a few I must

fraternity, community or organization

is made that I stood by while a person
spat in my wife's face.
Next comes the house-moving lie, and
indeed I thought that, having paid for
the moving and owned the land, I was
at liberty to move where and when I
liked, but it seems not.
Well, why I moved was this: We slept
only thirty feet from a stable and cor
ral with four horses, and in wet weather
with open windows at night the stench
was too much for healthy sleep. Again,
we were only thirty feet from the main
ditch, and with a baby and young chil
dren it was dangerous. We were also so
close that the dust from passing teams
interfered with our comfort. My wife
at that time almost lost her life wading
down the ditch over two miles, thinking
one of our children was in H. These
reasons we thought sufficient to move.

occupations, and dislike to waste my

deeply to have to reply to such an
article, but try to carry out the motto of
Burns, "Do right and fear nae shame."
Yours truly, Thomas Strain.
I fully endorse the foregoing, written
by my husband, and wish to say that
the statement that any person spat in
my face is utterly untrue and without
foundation, and at the time referred to
my husband was one mile away and
knew nothing of what was occurring. I
am sorry that the "scrap" occurred, as
it is made the occasion of many slander- j
ous reports having no foundation in fact. !
The statement that I sent for my brother- J
in-law is, like most of the others, un- !
