THE JURY TRYING HIM FAILS TO
General Mansfield Gives His Version of
His Encounter with the Irascible At
torney—Mr. White Tells His Story.
In the police court yesterday morn
ing Clayton White, the attorney, ap
peared before Judge M. T. Owens upon
the charge of battery preferred against
him by General John Mansfield.
With his customary facetiousness,
Attorney Brooks moved the court for a
•continuance until 2 o'clock, which was
On reconvening at 2 o'clock, the de
fendant, stated that Mr. Brooks was un
avoidably detained, but in order that
there might be no further delay, he
would conduct his own case. He then
made a motion to exclude spectators and
reporters from the courtroom, but
Justice Owens promptly denied the re
The complainant, UeneralJohn Mans
field, was then called to the stand. In i
effect, his testimony waß as follows:
"1 am an attotney at law, occupying
an office in i*" s ": Temple block. Mr.
Dunlap has the ftom next mine. 1 have I
no acquaintance with the defendant,
though I have seen him a number of I
times and know him.
"On the 20th of November he came
into my office and passed on to Mr. Dun
lap's room. I was writing at the time.
He went to the window, which opened i
on Spring street, and began calling
loudly to some person across the way.
His noise annoyed me, but I said noth
ing , and in a short time he ceased.
"I kept on with my work, and in a j
moment or two he began calling more
loudly than before.
"I got up and went to the door be
tween the rooms and called, 'Mr. White.'
He did not reply. I called again and he !
turned toward me. I said, 'Mr. White,
you forget this is my office. You are
just out of prison and I don't care to
have you shouting from my window, as
I don't desire any of that kind of noto
"I turned half way around to return
to my desk, and had my hand on the
door frame, when I fe|t a blow on the
head from that fellow's fist. I was over
whelmed with astonishment that he
should strike me, and before I realized
what was going on he struck me again
in the face, which was badly bruised and i
discolored from the blows.
"I then closed with him, and lie at
tempted to stick his lingerß into my
eyes. We struggled, and I threw him
the floor of my office. Mr. Dunlap and
another gentleman came in and pulled
us apart, and a few moments later a
policeman arrived. When White got up
I saw a revolver underneath him, and
picked it up and handed it to Officer ;
Sergeant W. T. Jeffries was the next
witness called. His testimony was to
the effect that as he passed under the
window of General Mansfield's office on
Spring street, he heard some one say in
a loud voice, "I'll shoot the s — of a
b —." He rushed upstairs to the lirst
floor of the Temple block, and found
White and Mansfield, Dunlap and
Adams, in a room, the two former being
bloodstained and disheveled, as if after
a light. He then arrested all the par
ties, but finally took the defendant to
J. B. Dunlap, an attorney, oorrobor-I
ated General Mansfield's testimony in
every particular, and Judge D. M. Ad- |
ams, who came in at the tail end of the j
fight, also corroborated the complainant. J
The defendant, Clayton White, then j
took tbe stand on his own behalf, and in
a nervous and excited manner testified j
in effect as follows:
"I bad the misfortune to be in the
county jail, but was released on Novem
ber 19th. I had told my friend Move
Wicks to secure my weapons from the
court, because while I was in custody I
had a letter from a party who threat
ened to do me violence as soon as I got
"The court refused to give up the
weapons to Mr. Wicks; but on the
morning of the twentieth I went to
Cheney's court and got them. I then
attended to some business I had on
hand, and in the afternoon started out
to get a permit to carry my weapons. I
took them along as I had an idea that I
would have to show them. I met officer
Weatherman at the junction of Temple
and Spring streets, and as I did not
know the law with regard to such mat
ters, I asked him about it; and he re
ferred me to the chief or mayor. I then
went up to my office in the Temple
block, and after cleaning things up a bit,
started out again. Seeing Mr. Dunlap
in his office, I wentover to speak to him,
and met General Mansfield in the door
way. I saluted him pleasantly and
passed in. While sitting at the window
with Mr. Dunlan, I saw my friend Judge
Adams, across the street, and as I had
not seen him for a long time, he hav
ing just returned from Nicaragua,
I called across to him, placing my
hands to my mouth. I was unable to
attract his attention, however, and he
turned the corner out of sight. Pres
ently I saw him emerge from the door
way of the Allen block and I beckoned
and yelled to him again, a little louder
than before. Mr. Dunlap told me not
to shout, as he would go over and catch
Mr. Adams; but I was afraid he would
miss him. Mr. Adams heard me finally
and as he started to cross the street I
went to meet him. As I did so I heard
General Mansfield say in a loud and in
sulting manner, 'What do you mean by
making so much noise about my office?'
I apologized, but he grew more angry
and said, 'I wish you to understand,
sir, that this is my office.' I told him
that I had not intended any offense and
apologized again, but he got more and
more excited, and shook his hand in ntv
face as if about to strike me. As he
was crowding me and I thought he would
hit me, I struck him and re
ceived a blow in the left eye at the
same moment which made me"see stars!
We then went at it and pounded each
other for a little while, until his supe
rior strength overcame me and he swept
me into his office like a whirlwind and
pushed me against a desk. Mv feet then
slipped from under me and 1 fell, he be
ing on top of me. The general then
gouged my eyes in the most approved
f ishion while we were on the floor, and
f tried to reciprocate. As we were roll
ing over on the floor, I heard some one
come in and ielt that I was being
grabbed and dragged backwards by the
niouldera. l s touted, then, 'Don't let
him get back at me, or I'll shoot him,'
because i was afraid he would Btamp me
in the belly. As I rose to my feet, my
revolver fell from my pocket, and as I
stooped to pick it up some one kicked it
away and tin g< neral got it. Just then,
a policeman entered and said,
'All <>1 yon come with me.'
The genual went into his private office
to wa-ii his face and the policeman

took me to the station, where they
searched me and found my knife. They
kept me locked up for three or four
days, without a chance to get bail, and
I came nearer dying then than I ever
did in my life."
In reply to a question put by a juror,
White said: "I was in jail upon con
viction of simple assault. It was an un
The complainant was recalled, and
Baid: "The statement of the defendant
that I struck him before he assaulted
me, is absolutely false and untrue. I
am 65 years of age, and never struck a
man or was struck by one in my life be
fore. When I realized that he had done
so, to use the words of General Grant,
'I moved upon his works and gatheied
him in.' "
The case was then argued, and at 5 :45
o'clock entrusted to the jury, which re
turned at 8:15 o'clock with the an
nouncement that the jurors were unable
to agree upon a verdict. They were
THE CITY VOTERS.
Their Number and Proportion in Each
As there seems to be some doubt in
the minds of a great many people as to
whether or not a full vote was cast at
the municipal election, the following
figures arc given with the view to their
enlightenment on thesubject:
There are in the city in round num
bers 10,000 voters, of whom 800 are in
the First ward, 1800 in the Second,
1050 in the Third, 1250 in the Fourth,
000 in the Fifth, 400 in the Sixth, 1350
in the Seventh, 1400 in the Eighth, and
750 in the Ninth ward.
Of the forty-seven precincts into
which the city has been divided, the
smallest contains 100 voters, while the
largest contains 500 voters. Taken as a
whole, however, the average number of
voters to a precinct is 220.
AT THE CLUB.
A New Set of Officers and Directors to
The annual election of a board of di
rectors for the California club will be
held on December 13th. The polls will
be opened at 12 o'clock, noon, and kept
continuously open until 7 o'clock p. m.,
of the same day.
The following is the regular ticket,
which comprises the existing board:
Dan Freeman, W. G. Hughes, C. Ca
bot, H. J. Stewart and J. W. Montgom-
The annual meeting of the members
will be held on the same date, for the
purpose of receiving from the president
his report of the accounts and general
business of the club. The present quar
ters in the board of trade building have
been leased for another year.
Alessandro Ma hint; Rapid Strides.
The great success of the Bear Valley
and Alessandro Improvement company,
is the all absorbing topic of conversation
wherever real estate is talked through
out Southern California. You can
scarcely meet a person who is not more
or less familiar with it, either he him
self or some of his acquaintances, being
the owner of one or more ten-acre lots
in that beautiful valley ; and it is not
only the people of our own county that
are buying lota in Alessandro, for you
will find by looking over the list of pur
chasers, and their places of residence,
that nearly every state in the union is
represented, with scarcely an omission,
and the interest is growing stronger day
by day. Every mail brings scores of
letters of inquiry, ami nearlyevery train
brings parties who are anxious to look
over the promised land. Everyone
seems delighted, and all exclaim, with
hardly an exception,
The Half Was Never Told,
And their names are also added to the
list of the owners of land in Alessandro.
We took a drive the other morning over
the new road from Redlands, which the
company has constructed at a cost of
nearly $5000, which shortens the dis
tance some three miles, making Alessan
dro now only one hour and a quarter's
ride from Redlands, and a delightful
drive it is. We were ourselves surprised
at the great improvements made there
since the day of selection, October 15th.
Redlands boulevard is now laid out and
graded from the mouth of the tunnel,
three miles, to Moreno, 120 feet wide
and smooth as a floor. Alessandro
boulevard crosses it at Moreno and runs
eaßt and west, and is also graded for six
and one-half miles, the same width and
equally as fine as the Redlands boule
vard ;" cross streets all laid out, with
names on every street. It did not seem
possible so much could be accomplished
in so short a time. Houses and barns
are being erected in all directions.
Scores of teams are at work on the tract.
Some 500 acres are already plowed, ready
for the first rain. Religious services are
now being held every Sabbath in Ales
sandro, a Sunday school started, and
site for a church selected. The pur
chasers are taking hold in dead earnest.
Hundreds of acres are already under
contract for cultivation the present sea
son. In the meantime the company
has not been idle. Three miles of pipe,
or about one-third of the distance, is
Tunnel No. 1 extends into the moun
tain 1200 feet; more than half com
pleted. Tunnel No. 2, of 100 feet, is com
pleted ; tunnel No. 8, of 205 feet, is also
finished. Water will be running
through those pipes and tunnels by
March 1, 1891. Thousands of acres
have been waiting and waiting for hun
dreds of years for some such man as
Frank E. Brown to be born, who had
the pluck and nerve to build Bear valley
dam, and then to guide its contents
and pour its life-giving waters on to the
thirsty earth in Alessandro, which will
make its barren plains bud and bloßsom
like the rose, and bring forth its fruit in
due season. What will you say, then,
you who are now hesitating about pay
ing $85 per acre, which is the price to
day? Am fearful you will call your
selves hard names; for land in Alessan
dro, with water on every ten acres from
Bear valley, will be worth any where
from $200 per acre upwards. It requires
no prophet to foretell the future of Al
essandro, with nearly 9000 acres already

In the matter of the claim of Ellen
Anderson against officer S. Van Cleve,
for 142.50, the latter admitted that it
was a just debt and that he intended to
pay it as soon as he could. As the
debt was contracted before Van Cieve

to take any action in the matter, and
the report was received and filed.

Mr. Dexter then inquired whether
there were not some vacancies on the
force to be filled.
Mayor Hazard replied that, there were
one or two vacancies, but until the chief
came in with a request for more men he
would oppose any motion to make new
appointments, and hoped the board
would abide by its resolution adopted at
a previous meeting, to that effect.
At the regular weekly meeting of the
board of fire commissioners, held yester

The Row Between Lizzie and Petete
at San Pedro.
On the 11th of November, Lizzie
Reyes and Petete Ramirez, inmates of
the notorious Brown's dance house, at
San Pedro, became involved in a dispute
and set upon each other with knives.
The result was, that the Reyes woman
cut a gash In the face of her rival. Yes
terday the merits of the case were en
quired into before Justice Carpenter.
Deputy District Attorney Diehl con
ducted the prosecution, lhe court room
was crowded with the most degraded
women of the Spanish, American and
African race. Probably a more de
praved set of females never before
gathered together in a courtroom in this
county. The evidence was of a most
conflicting and contradictory character.
Some even testified that the Ramirez
woman made the first attack. The
charge of an assault with a deadly
weapon against Lizzie Reyes was dis
missed. She will be tried in the near
future, however, for a simple assault.
