KILLED IN LIQUOR.
SENT ALL UNPREPARED TO HIS
Unshrivod, Unhouseled, Unaneled, With
All His Imperfections on His
A day or two before Christmas a very
distinguished lawyer of this city was on
a street car, making his way to his home
out on Adams street, lie is a man of
charming manners, knows everybody
and is liked by everybody. Sitting by
him on the car was a neighbor, in whose
bands was a package suggestive of some
thing meant to minister to the inner
man at Christmas time. An intimation
on the part of the disciple of Justinian
that the day was not about to be for
gotten elicited the remark that the con
tents of that bottle were not to be used
directly for the celebration of the great
Christmas festival, but that indirectly
they might add to the happiness of the
man who carried the package.
"No," said he, "the fact is I have got
to do a bloody deed and 1 do not like to
do it. But the fellow must die, and I
must kill him."
Such sanguinary sentiments from a
man known for his mildness of disposi
tion were startling, and the man of legal
lore listened, as might be expected,with
interest for further revelations.
"Yes," the other went on, "and be
must die tonight, I have got him to my
house for the purpose of doing him up.
But Ido not like to Bee him suffer. I
tb"refore intend to get the contents of
this bottle, or most of it, down his
throat, and then while he is under the
influence I will commit the deed, that
might unne:ve me if he were in his
senses, and likely to suffer pain."
"Oh! as to that," he went on, "I have
fully made up my mind to kill him—to
do it myself. There is no help for it.
Christmas would not be the enjoyable
day I intend it to be if that fellow walks
the earth and looks upon the rising sun
So interested had tbe popular lawyer
become by the time the car stopped to
let the two friends off, that Tom, as we
shall call him, determined to go by
John's house, as we shall name the
other. When the gate was reached
John was still expatiating on his dislike
to shed blood and his abboirence of see
ing a fellow-creature suffer, but at tho
same time, his fell determination that
his victim should first be doped with
brandy and then meet his fate. So the
two entered the gate together, Tom de
termined to see that his friend did
nothing rash. Inside the gate was a
comic scene to light the tragic gloom of
the oncoming event. A big turkey gob
bler was flying in blind terror away
from a small puppy, which was enjoy
ing the fright, he had instilled into the
big feathered biped.
"See them," remarked John. "Ever
since those two have been here that pup
has kept the gobbler in mortal fear, lie
chases him all over the place."
Here he turned and looked at Tom
with tbe remark, " You do not believe
me, but 1 actually bate to kill this
fellow." And then with a sigh went on,
"but it must be done, and 1 may as well
do it once and have it over."
He started back for the barn, and the
legal light kept close behind him. In
the barn he carefully uncorked the bottle
of '"Baldwin's best" brandy aud set it
on the stand.
"Now," said he, "let us have him out
andg°* this down his throat first."

and brandy. He lay down, stretched
his neck to its full'length, and went
into a state of absolute un
consciousness. John picked up his
hatchet, and with the nerve of a
Sybarite approached his sleeping victim.
As he struck a powerful blow that cut
the head clear from the neck lie said,
"See how beautifully lie has laid hip neck
for decapitation. Now Tom, that is the
way a turkey should be killed. He feels
no pain, and never knows he is dead."
The matter is referred to the society
for the prevention of cruelty to animals.
Think what a boom it will make in Cal
ifornia vineyards, if brandy is to be
used in all the slaughter houses of the
country. But do not let the prohibi
tion party hear of what is going on, for
besides the inroads to be made on the
morals of the gobblers, what effect will
the meat thus saturated with alcohol
produce on those who dine thereon?

with the exception of Chris. Cloetta,
who was ordered to appear, for sentence

been with whole crops. It is difficult to

LELIA LATTA ON TRIAL.
THE BOYLE HEIGHTS DOCTRESS
BEFORE THE COURT.
Mr. Swanton and Dr. Barber Testify.
The Latter Gives Strong Evidence
for the Prosecution.
The doctress with the alliterative
name, Dr. Lelia Latta, of Boyle Heights,
was on trial yesterday before Judge
Shaw, on a charge of having killed Mrs.
Alfaretta Swanton, of Boyle Heights, by
means of a criminal operation.
Miss Latta is a good looking woman
who is possessed of very effective brown
eyes, a rich chevelure, a willowy figure
and an air of refinement. She was well
dressed yesterday and was surrounded
by a number of women friends
who displayed much interest in her. She
did nut, appear to have much weight of
guilt on her conscience, for she passed a
pleasant half hour before court opened
in conversation. She is defended by
Henry T. Gage and Judge ■ arpenter,
and befriended by John Bryson, who
occupied a seat beside her.
Mr. Swanton, the husband of the
woman who was killed, testified as to
his wile having secured the services of
Miss Latta for the purpose of having an
abortion performed, the illness of the
poor woman and her dreadful death.
Dr. Barber testified in regard to his
being called in the case the morning
preceding the afternoon on which Mrs.
Swanton died. His evidence was to the
effect that he was told by Dr. Latta that
the patient was suffering from a mis
carriage ; that upon examination and
from the general symptoms he was oi
the opinion that an operation had been
performed. He had asked Dr. Latta
what had caused it. Site "looked up in
my face and smiled and said, 'I suppose
you are like all men—will give a woman
away.' " She afterwards told him that
she bad introduced a catheter and
given drugs which were calculated to
produce an abortion. He further said
that Dr. Latta had told him that
by arrangement Mrs. Swanton had
agreed to notify her if she grew worse
by banging a towel out the window.
That in the afternoon he again had been
called, and on his arrival found the
patient dead. Dr. Latta had asked
him, "What will I do?" He told her
to remain there until he sumiuoned the
He then gave a detailed and scientific
report of the port-mortein. He also
stated that tbe introduction of a cathe
ter was one of the means used to pro
duce an abortion. His testimony was
not materially changed on cross-exam
Dr. J. M. Harris, who keeps the drug
store at 1842 East First street, testified
that he had sold the defendant emmera
gogue pills two days before Mrs. Swan
ton died. Tbe witness also explained
the component parts of the pill, and
stated what they were invariably used
for. Coroner W. A. Weldon testified in
regard to holding the post mortem ex
amination, and the condition the body
was in at that time. Dr. Choate, who
was also present at the examination,
testified, when court adjourned until
A ST. LOUIS PHYSICIAN.
He Testa • California Production. —Hie
A St. Louis gentleman whose affliction was
sick headaches was so surprised at the core
effected by Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, that he
called it to the attention of a relative, who hap
pened to be none other than Dr. F. A. Barrett,
the well-known St. Louis physician of 2662 Shen
andoah Street The doctor saw at once that it
differed from the potash preparations in that it
was purely vegetable, and becoming interested
in It, began a series of investigations, and in a
subsequent letter candidly admitted its curative
properties, aud says: —
Wishing to test its virtues further, I rued It
In my own family, and prescribed it for patients
who required a general system regulator. As a
result, I can say it is an almost absolute cure for
constipation, biliousness, dyspepsia, indiges
tion, and sick headaches. These troubles usu
ally come from a disturbed condition of the
stomach and bowels, and Joy's Vegetable Sarsa
parilla is the best laxative and stomach regula
tor I have ever seen, and as a general system
corrective is almost perfection itself.

AN INTERESTING- LAW POINT FOR
The Southern Pacific Road Assumed to
be Liable for Damages Caused by a
Santa Fe Company's Locomotive.
A new law point in this state waa
brought up in the United States circuit
court on Monday on the argument on a
motion for a new trial by Colonel G.
Wiley Wells, in the case of Baldwin vs.
the Southern Pacific company for dam
ages resulting from the burning of plain
tiff's grain, caused by sparks thrown out
by a locomotive on the track of the de
In the trial it was shown in the evi
dence that the sparks came from a loco
motive belonging to the Santa Fe com
pany, which at that time had the rights
of a lessee over the defendant's tracks
between Colton and this city. On the
ground that this fact showed that the
Santa Fe was responsible, the case was
decided against the plaintiff.
The motion for a new- trial was based
on the point, new as stated in this state,
which was that, to quote from the brief,
"tbe Southern Pacific company permit
ted the Santa Fe to use their road and
arc liable for the negligence of the Santa
Fe," on tbe principle that "a railroad
lessor is liable for the lessee's negligence
in setting fire to crops on abutting
owners' lands, and the lessor and lessee
are jointly and severally liable for dam
ages arising from the operation of the
road by any or either of them."
Authorities were cited upholding this
view from the United States supreme
court decisions and from reports of every
state in the union except California.
The point is an interesting one, as
being distinct from tbe position of the
law regulating the liability of lessees
and lessors in other than railroad prop
The matter was taken under advise
ment by the court.
