battery. The court took the case under

away and ran into his mother's house.

A SUPREME COURT DECISION.
The Case of Catharine Banbury vs.
A decision of the supreme court was
yesterday filed in this city, sustaining
the judgment of the superior court in
the case of Catharine Banbury va.
Delos Arnold, appellant.
The action waß brought by respondent
who waa vendor in a contract for the
sale of certain real eatate, to enforce
certain performance of the contract on
part of the vendee, who was the ap
Plaintiff was the wife of T. Banbury
at the time of entering into the contract,
and there was no certificate of acknowl
edgment of the woman to the contract.
The court decides that the acknowl
edgment is a ministerial act of the
notary and is not an essential part of
the conveyance of the woman. That
■under the code is regarded simply aa
proof of the acknowledgment. * It
did not make any difference, there
tore, that this complaint failed
to state and the contract to
show an acknowledgment, and the
judgment of the lower court ia a.fiimed.

EADS IN TROUBLE.
BRAUN & CO.'S CLERK CHARGED
A Young Employee Who Discovered a
New Way to Rob—Colleoted for Orders
on the Warehouse and Kept the Pro
ceeds—He Offers to Make Restitution.
A complaint was drawn by the district
attorney late on Wednesday afternoon,
charging Jesse W. Eada, a trusted em
ployee of F.W.Braun&Co., with embez
The story as told the district attorney
by the member of the firm who procured
the complaint, shows that the young
man who stands charged with the crime
haß robbed his employers in a system
atic manner for some time past.
Eads is about 35 years of age, and has
acted in the capacity of shipping clerk
for the firm. Messrs. Braun & Co. keep
a large stock of gooda in storage, and it
was part of the shipping clerk's business
to make the orders out for goods required
from the warehouse, and to make out a
slip for each lot, on which the gooda were
to be charged up.
Theae slipa, together with the money
received should be turned over to the
cashier, but Eads' desire to gain money
tempted him to destroy the slips and
pocket the cash. He tried it once too
often, and on October 17th was detected
in appropriating $10. •
The firm, it is said, has been aware of
some irregularity for several months
past, but could not imagine where the
trouble lay until the shipping clerk was
discovered to be the culprit.
Eads acknowledged his guilt to his
employers and has offered to make good
the amount taken. The firm is diapoaed
to be lenient with him.
The warrant for his arrest has not
yet been served. Mr. Braun said last
night that the affair would probably be
adjusted today in which case criminal
proceedings will be dropped.
The full amount taken is not known,
but the peculations extend over some
months and may reach $500.
THE BOGUS MORTGAGE CASE.
Hoy Was Not Green, Neither Was
John C. Hoy was placed on trial be
fore Judge McKinley yesterday on an
information charging him with having
forged the name of Morris M. Green to
a promissory note for $4000 on the sth
of September with intent to defraud
Mr. Green and 0. A. Stassforth, a
broker to whom he offered the note,
with a bogus mortgage as security.
Another man, named Edward L.
Baker, ia also charged with the same
offense, and will be brought to trial in a
couple of weeks. The facta of the case,
which were given in full in the Herald
at the time of Hoy's arrest, are sub
stantially aa followa:
Baker went to Stassforth and said he
knew a man who lived out of town who
wanted to borrow $8000 on eighty acres.
A visit was paid to the place owned by
Morris M. Green, and Baker introduced
a man whom he called M. M. Green to
Stassforth. This man, it was shown
later, was not Green, but John C. Hoy.
Mr. Stassforth was on the witnese stand,
and told hie experience just as it was
reported in the Herald at the time. He
told how he at first believed Hoy to be
green, and how on investigation he dis
covered the fraud, which led to Hoy's
The case will be resumed at 10 o'clock

Three Long-Named Indians Found
Guilty of Murder.
Mo-jau-qua-di-ver, Chu-dul-en-u and
Ham-ah-san-la-nu were yesterday found
guilty in the United States district court
of the murder of a medicine man named
Kap-e-dar, in December of last year.
The defendants are all Yuma Indians,
and they choked the medicine man to
death and then stamped upon and beat
his body because he let a patient die.
A number ot Indians were called aa
witneaaeß, among them being the chief
of the tribe and Mojave Bill, but they
were all blissfully ignorant of how the
unfortunate medicine man came to his
death. Some of them heard he had a
cough, but they did not know anything
about his demise, although the whole
crew admitted having seen the body soon
after the deed was committed.

for the authorities to get her to this city
to testify. The crafty comrades and
friends of the three murderers stowed
her away on the reservation, and have

the murderers left. They returned,
however, and burned the remains.

We have received from tbe well-known manufacturers of Rochester, New
York, Messrs. Curtis & Wheeler, a line of their finest Bhoes. Anybody knows
this make of shoes and to say that anything as to the wearing quality for the
style and fit would be superfluous. It is only necessary for us to say that these
goods will be sold by us at the prices that rule in everything at the People's
Store. It has been our motto for the past six months to raise a standard of mer
chandise throughout our house, and at tbe same time lower the price to the low
est living margin wherewith to do business. There can be no doubt of the ulti
mate success of this principle; the best of merchandise at the lowest of price is
bound to win in every race. It is only a question of time, and we have been more
than surprised how quickly our efforts in this direction have been appreciated.
It ia our aim to place before you ttie best merchandise and at as low a profit com
patible with existence. During the present month we arc striving to raise a cer
tain amount of money which is absolutely necessary for us in our business. We
have to get this in order to enjoy good tenderloin steaks in the future. So during
this month we are selling goods for pleasure, not for profit. It ia to your advan
tage as well as ours to take time by the forelock and surprise yourself with what
ever may be needed in the wardrobe or in the house.
In men's shoes we carry the well known brands of Hanan & Son's and Lilly,
Brackett & Co.'s; for superior workmanship, style, durability, fit and style, these
two concerns cannot be excelled.
We will sell you today a line of Hanan <Sc Son's button shoes at $4, the regular
price'of which is $6.
We will sell you Hanan & Son's best work at $0, the price of which varies
from $8 to $9.
We will Bell you a line of Lilly, Brackett & Co.'s calf shoes at $2.50, the price
of which ia $4.
We will sell you a line of men's calf button shoes at $1.50, the price of which
Now if you can beat these prices for these qualities in the shoe line, then our
name is Dennis—we'll shut up, dry up and blow away.
In ladies' shoes we will offer you at $0.50 the beat work made by Curtis &
We will offer you at $5 a line of Curtia & Wheeler's shoes, as well as other
manufacturera, that cannot be mated in this town under $0.50.
We will sell you at $2.50 a line of ladies'dongola, perfect fitting, extra quality,
patent leather tip shoes, which sell regularly at $3.50.
We will sell you Viegard, Langslow & Carry's hand made, dongola, button
shoes at $2 a pair; our price for the same lias always been $3.50.
We will sell you today at $1 a pair a line of misses' sole leather tipped, button
Bhoes, with heels, 11a to 2s, the regular price of which ia $1.50 a pair.
This ia just like finding 50c. because we never since we have been in business
have taken the price of these shoes.
Infanta' kid shoes, 50c a pair.
Child's shoes, 4s to Ba, 75c a pair.
Only a few days more at which you can have a chance at what is left of Our
clothing. We have received an offer from a concern in San Diego to take our en
tire stock. We much prefer to give it to our patrons in Loa Angelea, but we want
the room, as stated before, wherewith to increase our other departments. We
are now making improvements in our store, painting and papering, and aa soon
aa thia is done, we want to commence the alterations of our fixtures.
You can buy clothing from ua today at 50c on the dollar of what it cost us in
. You can buy overcoats for $2.95.
You can buy men's suits for $8 that no living concern can sell you under $16.
You can buy boys' wool suits from ua at $1, not cotton made, that you pay
$1.50 and $2 for, but wool.
If you are in need of a hat we would consider it a favor if you would give ua a
call. Besides from business, we have a splendid line of hata, and the prices at
which we are now selling them, considering our press for money, ia cheaper than
you have ever bought headgear before in your life.
At $3 we sell you hata that ordinarily sell for $4.50.
At $2.50 we cell you hatß that you cannot duplicate in this town under $3.75
At $2 we sell you hats that are made for ua, bear our stamp; we guarantee the
wear or refund the money, and you cannot buy such a bat under $3 anywhere.
At 90c and $1 we are selling a line of French fur felt crushers for men or boys;
the lining on the inside of the hat is worth $1.
In boys' wool hats we are selling a line at 45c ; same aa we have always sold
at 75c; if our hats are not the cheapest and the best for the money that you have
ever bought, why when you see them do not purchase.
DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT.
The slaughter continues here unabated. We are offering the beat values in
dress gooda aa ever passed on the counter by any dry goods houae in the
We are selling a line of homespuns at 15c a yard that we had marked to sell
Now when we mark an article we aim to be from 5c to 25c a yard under the
closest competition in this town, so you can imagine what this means.
At 25c we are selling aline of Bedford corda, the very latest novelties in dress
goods, solid colored henriettaa, plaids, checks and stripes, dress goods that are
At 35c we sell you a line of all wool tricots, in grays and browns, regular price
of which always has been 50c a yard.
At 50c a yard we sell you a 54 inch, all wool Scotch material; our price on
these goods was $1 a yard; it only takes 5 yards of thia width to make a complete
suit; for $2.50 you are buying a dress that you cannot duplicate in this town
under $7.50; thia is the plain, unvarnished truth.
At 50c a yard we are selling a line of camel's hair plaids; the regular price on
these goods is $1.25; this ia not wild exaggeration, but every merchant will tell
you that they cannot purchaae a fair quality of camel's hair fancy dress goods
under $1 a yard.
A line of French flannels, in solid colors, at SOc a yard;. it you can buy them
anywhere at 75c then we forbear claiming these cheap.
A line of bed comforts at $1 apiece; if they are not cheap at $2, then we are
willing to send them back where they came from.
At $6.50 we will seil you a line of chenille portieres; if you can buy them for
$10 anywhere, then we lay no claim to their being cheap.
Ladies' fast black, drop stitch hose at 30c a pair; these are the quality that
we always sell at 50c, and we assure you upon honor that you cannot buy a sir*
ilar stocking under 60 to 65c in this town.
LADIES' UNDERWEAR DEPARTMENT.
We will sell you today at 50c apiece a line of ladies' natural gray or white
wool underwear; if these can be bought in this town at $1 apiece ours are not
worth 10c; our price on these goods was $1.10.
TO THE PUBLIC.
We are putting on all the steam that it is possible for us to carry in order to
do business—the volume cannot be too great. Every department in our store
contributes largely to the success of this sale by reason of the price that we are
making on every article tbat we carry. Go into any department in our Stores and
you will find cut prices. We do ours in the hopes of interesting you in our mer
chandise and getting you to leave as much money with us aa possible.
