ITS USUAL POSE.
The District Attorney's Office
Did Jealousy Prompt Proceed
ings Against Savage.
The End of the Local Legal Farce
Justice Savage in Court—The Charge of
Embezzlement Dismissed — The
Justice Denies a Sensational
Tlie second act in the local legal farce
comedy, "The Hoodwoed Bail Money ; or
Who's an Embezzler," was played in
Justice Austin's court room yesterday
Judge Savage, his attorney, C. C.
Stephens, the !f1,500 in a sack, Assistant
District Attorney McCoraas and detective
Keiler each did their little acts. Judge
Savage paid tlie money over to Deputy
County Clerk Grain, took his receipt for
it, and the case was dismissed.
Mr. McComas made the very extraor
dinary remark that the charge of felony
made against Justice Savage was done
simply to make him take some action in
The district attorney's office has appar
ently again made a spectacle of itself.
One gentleman who is well informed as
to the situation said to a Herald repor
"The whole affair was caused by jeal
ousy of Hardesty. Those other fellows
saw what a ten strike he made, in the
Damron-Lockwood business, and they
thought they would eclipse his record, so
they went to work and hired detectives
and had Savage shadowed, and when
they thought he was short, they had
him arrested. But Savage was too
smart for them, and now they and their
smart detectives are in a most ridiculous
position. Everybody is laughing at
them and justly so, for they have acted
like greenhorns. The only reputation
they have made out of the matter is that
of men who don't know their business."
That also seems to be the opinion of a
There have been sensational stories
afloat about Justice Savage, which in
connection with the flash-in-the-pan
criminal procedure on the part of the
district attorney's office have caused
considerable comment. The justice was
told the story yesterday by a Herald
reporter, which is, that one evening
recently he was in a saloon on Com
mercial street, and by some means was
buncoed out of a check for $500 made
payable to "cash or bearer," and which
check was drawn against the $1,500 be
longing to Udell. The men's names
concerned in the alleged bunco business
were given, and are those of well known
"sure thing" operators. It was also
reported that a detective was in or
about the saloon at the time, and it
was supposed by those who heard this,
that Savage's arrest was a consequence.
On bearing this statement Justice
Savage was very much surprised, and
denounced it as a base fabrication. He
was in Santa Monica at the date this
matter is said to have occurred. He had
not drawn a $500 check for over two
years. He had not used any of the
tor any purpose. He was intense
ly indignant and repeatedly denied
the whole story.
It is more than probable that several
damage suits will grow out of the first
and only presentation of this farce on

Mr. Martin, made a special order for 10
o'clock this morning.
In the matter of the voting precincts
of the city a petition was received from
the Republican clubs of the city, asking
that the supervisorial and precinct
boundaries be made to conform with the
ward boundaries. On motion of Mr.
Rowan the same was ordered filed, and
the boundaries of the forty-seven pre
cincts as shown upon a map before the
board were adopted.
A petition was received from the trus
tees of the San Pasqual school district,*
asking that $1713.34 be transferred from
the school building fund of that district
to the special school fund, and on motion
of Mr. Martin the same was granted.

His assertion that the "motley crew"
of sewer laborers is principally composed
of Italians, is untrue. That they are
"dirty and greasy" is also untrue.
The immaculate editor lives, undoubt

who works all day under the rays of the
burning sun, with the dirt blowing on
his perspiring person, can look as clean
and sweet as a person who handles
nothing heavier than a quill.
Shame on the editor of that paper,
for casting reflections on labor! If he
discovered "but a faint look of intelli

of the reformers and condemn the ex

duces such beings, instead of condemn

"Damfino." Judge Shaw was looking
placidly up at the ceiling, the clerk was
whittling a match, a few Azusa people
were lazily watching the proceedings in
the case of Webber vs. Ott. This is a
horse case. Mrs. Webber, who is now

her father, when she was ten years old
gave her a mare colt. This was at the

came to years of maturity, and every

the world. Mr. Justus died and the
estate was put into the hands of Mr.
Ott as executor. Then Mrs. Webber
tried to recover two of the mare's colts

Who Arrived in the World on an Over
The Southern Pacific overland train

morning, several hours overdue, brought
among its passengers, one who created
somewhat of a sensation among her

leaving Bagdad in San Bernardino

tourist car, which was promptly turned
into a temporary lying in hospital. A
