THE SECOND ACT
Of A Legal Farce Comedy
.Justice Theodore Savage In a
Because He Cannot Get Rid of a Lot
The Conflicting Features of the Case-
Orders from Various Courts Which
Seem to iClash—The Situation.
Justice of the Peace Theodore Savage
is suffering from an embarrasment
of riches. He haa $1,500 in
gold coin in a little sack
which he prayed a number of people to
take from him yesterday, but without
success. Several persons wanted the
money, and the justice seemed willing
to give it to anyone of them, but he
was not permitted to, and so he and his
attorney, C. C. Stephens, trotted about
from one court to another, with the lit
tle sack of gold, vainly trying to find a
judge who could tell them what to do.
The law is occasionally eminently
ridiculous. It is so in this case, the
features of which may be stated as fol
Justice Savage is arrested in one court
for embezzling $1500 deposited with him
as bail by Mr. Alva Udell, which the
complaint says should be turned over to
the clerk oi another court. Justice
Savage has the coin intact, so he cannot
have embezzled it. He has not turned
it oyer to the clerk of the other court,
because an order was issued from still
another court restraining him from so do
ing. All the time an order from a San
Francisco court has been in force gar
nisheeing the money in favor of certain
creditors of Mr. Udell. . Wean while,
Mr. Udell has been arraigned in the
superior court, and held to answer a
criminal charge, but though he
has the $1500 cash bail in
Justice Savage's court, he Cannot get
that money into the Buperior court, be
cause the superior court will not author
ize Justice Savage to turn it over, and
so Mr. Udell has to go to jail. If the
whole matter were set to some catchy
music, and all the judges, lawyers, and
parties interested placed on the stage
of the opera house, the result would be
a comic opera of unparalleled absurd
Mr. Stephens at last gave up the con
test and had his client, Justice Savage,
deposit the money in bank, and this
morning the second act in the legal
farce will take place when the curtain
is rung up in Justice Austin's court on
Savage's examination on a charge of em
bezzling the money which he has in the
sack deposited in the bank.
Yesterday afternoon an attempt was
made to unwind the tangle before Judge
Van Dyke, who had issued the order
restraining Justice Savage from paying
the money over to the* clerk of the supe
rior court. There were lawyers enough
present to settle anything. Justice Sav
age was represented by Mr. C. C. Steph
ens; Mr. Udell by J. Marion Brooks;
Mrs. Udell,who wants to be divorced, but
who has a possible interest in the $1,500,
by Mr. Horace Appel, and the San Fran
cisco garnishors oy Mr. Wilson. There
was a talk of two hours resulting, which
naturally resulted in nothing but talk.
There were rumors afloat yesterday of
certain sensational features which might
be .connected in some way with the case,
though nothing definite could be learned.
The Business Transacted at Their
The board of supervisors met yester
day, pursuant to adjournment, Chair
man Perry and a full board present.
On motion of Mr. Rowan the matter
of the court house bonds was set for
consideration on Thursday next, and the
matter of ventilating the new building
also went over to the same day.
The much mooted question of the vot
ing precincts of Pasadena again came up
for discuss ion, and on motion of Mr.
Martin the clerk was instructed to cor
respond with the city clerk of that place,
and inform him that according to the
report of the census marshal, that city
was only entitled to tivefirecincts.
In the matter of the proposed county
road at Garvanza a aeed and certificate
of title for the right of way was received
and referred to the district attorney
with the request that he report thereon
On motion of Mr. Davies, the follow
ing resolution was unanimously adopted:
"It appears from the certificates of
the board of trustees of the Compton
city school district that an election was
held by the electors of said school dis
trict, whereby the board was duly au
thorized to issue bonds of said district in
the sum of $1,500 for the purpose of
building a school house. It was by res
olution decided that three bonds of
the Compton city school district be is
sued : No. 1, due' Jan. 31,1892, for $500;
No. 2, due Jan. 31, 1893, for $500; and
No. 3, due Jan. 31, 1894, for $500: bear
interest at 8 per cent, per annum." •
On motion of Mr. Davis, the clerk was
directed to advertise for bids for the
purchase of said bonds.
The necessary deeds for the new Flor
ence and Compton road having been re
ceived and filed, the land therein de
scribed was declared a public highway.
The board then adjourned until today."
Opens an Office for the Transaction of
Land Office Business.
H. W. Fatton, who'made a close run
for the nomination of surveyor general,
before the San Jose convention, has
opened an office at room I old Wilson
block for the transaction of United
States land office, state land office and
general business. He will also handle
mines and oil territory.
Mr. Patton leaves this morning for
Ventura county, where he has oil in
terests. He will return Thursday or

General Manager Major Ben C. Tru
man went east yesterday, to make pre
parations to open the permanent ex
hibit at Chicago.
They are Coming our Way if We Will
From Milford to Pioche, Nevada, is
145 miles. The Union Pacific has
graded 120 miles of this distance, and
there are rails at Milford to iron 23
miles of this road, but the track cannot
be laid, because no ties can be obtained.
If the ties could be had. the whole dis
tance would be operated at once.
This would bring the new road
145 miles towards Los Angeles,
its intended terminal point on the Paci-
its, intended terminal point on the
fie, that is if we will let the road get
into this city. San Diego would pro
bably give $1,000,000 for such a road,
and grant it all the facilities it would
care to ask for.
The Chicago Herald of the 27tli, ulti
mo has this to say about the efforts of
roads to reach Los Angeles, in reference
to the Pacific Short Line.
Behind everything else and resting on
the success of the Milwaukee & St.
Paul's attempt to secure control of the
road, is another poweriul transconti
nental alliance. The Oregon Short Line
and Utah Northern railway —the Union
Pacific's western auxiliary line—is
building from Ogi i southwest to Los
Angeles, and . also to reach San
Francisco and break the monopoly
which the Southern Pacific now has at
that city on all existing rail lines lead
ing north, south or east from the
golden gate. This has roused
the anger of the Southern Pacific Com
pany, which stands ready to throw off
its Union Pacific connection for any able
bodied competitor. Should the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul secure the Pacific
Short Line the present plan, which has
passed through all the preliminary
stages, is to forma closer' alliance be
tween the Milwaukee & St. Paul and the
Southern Pacific, shutting out all the
latter's connections at Ogden. This
would also take in the Pacific North
west, as the Southern Pacific now has a
line from San Francisco to Portland and
is building to Puget sound.
It has been thought that the Missouri
Pacific was behind the new combination
between the Colorado Midland and the
Rio Grande Western. A well informed
railway man of this city says it is the
Rock Island road that controls the sit
uation there. The following from the
Salt Lake Tribune seems to confirm that
view—but after all, the Missouri Pacific
and the Rock Island are the same:
W. J. Lawrence, the newly appointed
superintendent of the Colorado Midland,
who takes his position next Monday,
leaves the Rock Island with a fine rec
ord. He went to Colorado Springs when
the road was built to that point, as su
perintendent of the western division,and
has gained a high standing among the
officials of the road. The Midland is a
road that requires a good railroad man,
as it is all in the mountains and requires
constant attention. Mr. Lawrence is sup
posed to be the best man that could have
been selected for the position.
The Locomotive Fireman's Magazine
estimates that the membership of the
various railway orders are as follows :
Brotherhood of Locornotiye Engineers,
20,000; Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire
men, 18,000; Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen, 10,000; Switchmen's Mutual
Aid Association, 0,000; Brotherhood of
Railway Conductors, 2,000. Of these all
but the first named are members of the
Federation, thus giving that body a
membership of 42,000. The order of
railway conductors, before tho Roches
ter convention, estimated their member
ship at 20,000.

in the East, and the only ones permanently successful.
Over 300 miles of this paving are now laid in the principal
cities of the United States. It is supplanting stone, wood,
and other pavements. Recommended by sanitary and
civil engineers of cities, because:
1. —It is cheaper to maintain.
2—lt saves wear and tear of vehicles and lessens cost
of drayage in increased loads hauled.
3. —It is clean, free from dust, mud and unhealthful ac
cumulations common to every other pavement and dang
erous to health.
4. —It is comparatively noiseless; in this respect
a boon appreciated by business men, invalids, dwellers in
hotels and homes.
