Signor Nicoletti Thinks It

Fifty Thousand Dollars Asked from the
"Herald"—What the Plaintiff Has
to Say About His Case.
Mr. Stephen Nicoletti appeared yes
terday at the county clerk's office, with
his attorneys, for the purpose of filing a
complaint against the publishers of the
Herald alleging slander. Mr. Nicoletti
nor his attorneys appeared to know that
the law required the filing of a bond
with such a complaint, and it was not
until late in the afternoon that they
presented the instrument, with G.
Tononi, "a capitalist," and A. Perri, "a
laborer," as sureties to the amount of
The complaint is herewith given in
Stephen Nicoletti, plaintiff, vs. J. J.
Ayers and J. D. Lynch, co-partners, de
Plaintiff complains and alleges that
they now are, and at all times herein
after mentioned J. J. Ayers and J. D.
Lynch were co-partners and the pub
lishers and proprietors of "The Daily
Herald, a newspaper published in the
city of Los Angeles, county of
Los Angeles, state of California;
that the said J. J. Ayers and J.D Lynch,
well knowing the premises, did on the
26th day of July, 185)0 cause to be pub
lished, and published in said newspaper
of and concerning the plaintiff, and
concerning the premises, the following
false and defamatory matter, to-wit:
let us have a democratic movement.
It would puzzle any Democrat at pres
ent living in Log Angeles county to know
why he should be moved to any en
ergy of enthusiasm in response to the
leadership of Mr. J. T. Gaffey, under
whose inspiration the polls of the city of
Los Angeles were burglarized Saturday
week, by the aid of Walter S. Moore and
the Oro Fino Club.
There is no such enthusiasm; and, we
may add, there never will be.
Why should a man like John T. Gaf
fey, through the aid of a Democratic
club, with his running mate, Walter S.
Moore, of the Republican Oro Fino Club,
be allowed to down the honest Demo
crats of Los Angeles city and county ?
and echo answers, Why?
Why should the loafer element of the
Democratic party, or of any other party,
through money introduced" from abroad,
be able to put on a Democratic ticket, as
a delegate for San Jose, a man who has
served a term in the penitentiary at
San Quentin ?
If there is a delegate to the San Jose
convention who has served a term in
San Quentin, is it not right that the
Herald should suffer greatly and should
feel that the party has suffered an intol
erable injury in the appearance of this
man's name amongst the delegates who
represent a great party and a patriotic
and original idea? One of the editors of
the Herald is one of the delegates-at
large to the Democratic state convention
at San Jose, and he has no hesitation in
saying that he will send in his resigna
tion as a member of that body unless
this person is expunged from such mem
No honest Democrat desires to sully
his unselfish devotion to principle by
sitting in the same body with pariahs
and pimps. As Mr. Gaffey has under
taken the control of the Democratic city
primaries, in conjunction with Walter
S. Moore, we would like very much to
know exactly what the Oro Fino (Re
publican) Club and the Tammany (Dem
ocratic) Club have to say about the most
infamous developments ever known in
Los Angeles county. The people who
have paid Mr. Walter S. Moore and Mr.
John T. Gaffey, if they have paid them
anything, have thrown their money
away. The outrages at the polls Satur
day week have created a sense of over
mastering indignation amongst the citi
zens of the city of Los Angeles, and in
the country this sentiment is immensely
The Democratic voters of the city of
Los Angeles are waiting with great and
growing anxiety to find out whether or
no they are a job lot of shysters and
tricksters, to be handled by Mr. John
T. Gaffey, late from Santa Cruz, with a
lovely lisp on his tongue and Fixley's
nomination for office, and Mr. Walter S.
Moore, lately returned from the interest
ing Moyamensing precincts in Phila
delphia, presided over by the Hon. Billy
McMullin, of holy, pious and immortal
As a matter of fact, the honest Demo
crats, both in city and county, want
none of this ''shenanigan." They claim
a fair deal, and they repel with inex
pressible indignation the methods which
make the voter a mere chattel, and
parties nothing more than agencies for
perpetuating political prostitution.
We may be treated to the old refrain
that Democrats have been guilty of such
political malpractices, and are guilty of
them now, in some measure. To this
we answer that the arraignment is per
haps true, but the Democratic party has
always been quick and peremptory in
rebuking misbehavior in its servants.
We may also be permitted to quote that
old, time-honored adage, that "two
wrongs never make a right."
That afterwards, to-wit: On the 2Cth
day of July, 1890, the said J. D. Lynch,
one of the defendants herein, at the law
office of Stephen M. White, in the city
of Los Angeles, county of Los Angeles
and state of California, did publicly as
sert that the plaintiff herein was the
person to whom he had reference in the
foregoing article as having served a
term of imprisonment in San Quentin,
in words and language as follows, co-wit:
*'I never saw Mr. Nicoletti before; I
have no animosity towards him, but I
have a right to make the issue which I
did. Mr. Nicoletti, I was told, had
made a murderous assault with a knife
on some person ; that he had been im
prisoned and tried and that the jury
had ( disagreed; that he was then re
tried" and acquitted; the use of the term
San Quentin was perhaps wrong."
That said language was published of
and concerning the plaintiff by the de
fendants, as aforesaid, with the intent
and meaning to convey, and the same
was, by the persons who read said lan
guage, so published, understood and be
lieved to convey a charge that plaintiff
had served a term of imprisonment in
the penitentiary at San Quentin, state

forth, are wilfully and maliciously false

defame and scandalize the plaintiff and
to hold him up before the community
and his friends and neighbors and asso

confidence and respect of his neighbors
and friends. And by reason of the pub
lication thereof the plaintiff has been
injured in his good name, reputation
and credit, and has sustained damage in
the sum of $50,000, therefore plaintiff
demands judgment, etc.

He Gets a New Trial on a Grave
The hearing of a motion for a new
trial in the case of Thomas A. Brooks, a
young man who some time ago was con
victed of rape on the person of Anna
Caskey on the Ist of April, took place
yesterday afternoon in Judge McKin
ley's court. It will be remembered that
the two young people eloped together
from Santa Monica, went through an
alleged mock marriage here, and were
arrested a couple of days later in Santa
Barbara. Anna Caskey was not present
at the trial, having left the state, so her
preliminary testimony was used at the
trial. Since then she has returned, and
is anxious to help Brooks out of his
trouble. The ground upon which the
new trial was asked was newly discov
ered testimony, and consists in the affi
davit of Anna Caskey, who calls herself
Mrs. Thomas A. Brooks, who avers that
he did not commit the crime
alleged, nor did he have any
relations of any nature with her
from the time they eloped until
they were arrested by the officers. Mrs.
Brooks, if such she be, is a young
woman, weighing 163 pounds, 5 feet 8
inches in height, and she appears fully
18 years of age, although she is herself
of the belief that she is not 15 yet. The
court granted the motion, and it is very
probable that this will be the last of the
A NEW TERMINAL
For the Rapid Transit aad Redondo
The Redondo Beach Railway Com
pany is trying to secure terminal facili
ties at the foot of First street, on the
east side of the river. It proposes to
have its depot on the Clement tract,
i providing that it finds it can swing its
line into the city by way of Compton
and the south. This move will entail a
great expense, but the present terminal
puts it at such a great disadvantage that
something must be done.
This is but one detail of a large
scheme now being negotiated between
the Redondo road people and the San
Gabriel Valley Rapid Transit Company.
The idea is that the two shall unite on
this depot proposition, and thus make
the two roads one virtually from Azusa
and Pasadena to the sea. It would
make both lines easy of access, and
j would increase their business tremen
dously. At present the plan looks as if
it could be easily consummated.

Justice LockAvood Held to
AnsAver a Criminal Charge,
But He Continues to Hold His
His Attorneys Go On His Bonds—Public
Opinion Demands His Retirement-
Justice Savage yesterday morning
denied the motion made by counsel for
W. C. Lockwood to dismiss his case.
The motion had been made on Friday
afternoon, immediately after the pros
ecution rested, and was taken under ad
visement by the court. In denying the
motion the justice stated that the evi
dence to which he had listened disclosed
first, that a felony had been committed
and that the defendant was aware of it;
second, that Lockwood knew that J. 51.
Damron had been charged with it, and
third, that W. C. Lockwood harbored
and protected Damron after his bail
bond had been declared forfeited and he
had become a fugitive from justice.
Mr. Shinn stated that on consultation
with his client and associate counsel it
had been determined that the defense
would offer no evidence.
The court thereupon held Justice of
the Peace Lockwood to answer before
the superior court as an accessory after
the fact, and put his bail at $3,000. Mr.
Hardesty pleaded hard to have the bail
increased to $5,000, but Justice Savage
said he saw no reason why he should do
Immediately after the parties had
withdrawn from the court-room District
Attorney Kelly was served with a notice
by Messrs. Shinn & Ling that they
would apply for the discharge of the
prisoner by means of a writ of habeas
corpus. They requested the district at
torney not to file an information until
the writ could be heard. This request
was disregarded, as Mr. Hardesty, at 2
p. in., filed his information in Judge
The time for Lockwood's arraignment
was set for tomorrow at 10 o'clock.
At the same hour, T. C. Carran, one
of Lockwood's bondsmen, surrendered
him and he was placed in,charge of
Deputy Constable Johnston, in whose
company he spent the afternoon
hunting a new bondsman.
At 4 o'clock Lockwood had found a
sufficient number of friends to go on his
bond and appeared before Justice Mar
shall in the township justice court with
R. A. Ling, W. H. Shinn and Henry J.
A. Sthur, who qualified in the sum of
$500 each and A. C. Lockwood, father of
the defendant, who became surety in
the sum of $1,500. The bond was ap
proved by the district attorney and the
The rules of the superior court of this
county prohibit attorneys-at-law from
becoming bondsmen for persons accused
of crime who have to stand trial, and for
that reason it will become incumbent
upon Messrs. Ling and Shinn to with
draw from Lockwood's bond on Monday,
or after he is arraigned. It is under
stood that his father owns valuable
property in this city, said to be worth
about $15,000, and for that reason Lock
wood will hardly be at a loss to find
sufficient sureties to keep him out of
A number of people yesterday ex
pressed the opinion that Mr. Lockwood,
now that he is to be tried at the bar of
the superior court for a crime which
may land him in the penitentiary for
five" years, should either resign or ob
tain leave of absence until this scandal
ous affair is settled either way—by his
acquittal or conviction. Without enter
ing upon the presumption of his guilt
or innocence, they say that out oi self
respect, and deference to the wishes of
the board of supervisors the general
public and the opinion of the
press, he cannot, if he has any
manhod, pretend to dispense jus
tice from the bencli until the stain
now resting upon his character has been
cleared. It is known that Justice Lock
wood has sought to know the opinion of
some of his colleagues at the bar re
specting the judiciousness of his remain
ing in office, and one prominent attor
ney, when so approached, emphatically
stated that Lockwood, in his opinion,
should have resigned as soon as he was
arrested on the charge of forgery. Mr.
Lockwood's peculiar ideas of how jus
tice should be administered may easily
be appreciated when it is learned that
his devotion to Jim Damron biased him
on other occasions. For instance, when
Siegel, the hatter, was about to swear
out a warrant for Pond's arrest on a
charge of forgery, Lockwood, the jus
tice, urged the complainant to temporar
ily stop legal proceedings because he an
ticipated that the recurrence of so mam
forgery charges might cause a public
feeling that would prove dangerous to
Jim, the penman.
Lockwood may not feel desirous to
forego a very decent salary, with no
more work daily than he cares to do,
but it seems a hardship on the tax
paying community that he should re
ceive monthly $106.60', when, as a mat
ter of fact, one week of this salary has
been earned sitting in court-rooms as a

The board of park commissioners held
a special session yesterday morning in

After approving the pay-roll of the de

ing to $1,560, and a number of demands
aggregating $360, the board instructed
Clerk Robinson to request the council
to cause a connection to be made be
tween the new pipe at Westlake park
and the Jones reservoir, on account of
the uncertainty of the water supply
under the existent arrangements.
The routine business having thus been
disposed of, the commissioners took up
the question of abandoning the original
board, in favor of themselves as the new
board, recently appointed by the gover
nor. After some discussion of the mat
ter it was decided that the new board
should meet in the near future for the
purpose of organization, after which it
will pass resolutions informing its pre
decessor of its action, by virtue of an
act passed by the last legislature. These
resolutions will be received and spread
upon the minutes of the old board,
which will then adjourn sine die.
Mr. Schultz's Method of Getting Plenty
Jack Skinner, the contractor, has an
unfenced lot at the corner of Wilmington
and Requena streets, where he keeps a
lot of lumber. For the last six months
Skinner has been losing considerable
quantities of his material, and he has
lately set Robert Meisser, one of his
employees, to watch it.
Yesterday afternoon Meisser saw two
men with a light wagon transferring a
load of wood from the lot to their ve
hicle. When be attempted to stop
them one of the fellows ran away; but
the one who drove the wagon, and who
gave his name as Nick Schultz, was de
tained until the arrival of Officer Harris,
who brought him and AVitness Meisser
to the station. Mr. Skinner was sent
for, and alter hearing the facts charged
Schultz with petty larceny. Schultz
claimed to be in the employ of Mr.
Shearer, the contractor, and had his
orders to take away the lumber. Mr.
Skinner says that story cannot be true.
