A Man Ruthless}/ Slays
♦ THE MIKDERER IN JAIL.
A Horrible Scene—The Woman
Shot Five Times in tbe
One of the most fearful, deliberate
and foul murders ever committed in
Log Angeles county, or on the (.'oast,
horrified this community yesterday.
Ahout 6 o'clock a telephone message
reached the police office that a man
had killed his wife out on Alameda
street. A Herald reporter got the
news quickly, and procuring a team
drove rapidly to the scene, corner of
Alameda and Jellerson streets.
A SICKENING SIOIIT.
A jabbering crowd of Mexicans of
both sexes and of all ages was land
ing along the street in front of the
scene of the tragedy. Arriving at the
gate the reporter met a sight which he
had seldom seen before. Lying upon
the ground, in a large puddle of blood,
lay tiie prostrate form of the unfortu
nate woman. Blood was flowing
in a slow stream from her mouth,
and her back, between the shoul
der blades, was riddled with bullets.
Her two little girls were tripping
lightly around the inanimate form of
the mother who had once smoothed
their tresses with a gentle touch and
whose fond kiss had so often relieved
their pain. The older one is eleven
years of age and »the youngest an in
fant of four years, They did not ap
pear to realise their loss. They were
petted and eared for by tho Mexican
friends, who did all in their power to
THE FOUL DEED.
leaning upon the fence was an aged
Mexican named Urios, who, by
his deep intelligent expression,
suggested that he knew something
about the case. He was approached
by the scribe and after some little per
suasion in Spanish he told the follow
•'I was about here this afternoon
ahout 3:110 o'clock when I
saw Mrs. Calzada standing
on the stoop with her children
standing by her side. The husband,
Francisco Calzada, came along aud be
gan talking to her and I paid no more
attention to them. In it few moments
1 was startled by a shot . Looking up
I saw Calzada standing in the garden
with the youngest child hi his arms.
His wife had fallen to the ground and
he deliberately bent over her and
fired five more'shots into her back.
He then started down Jelterson street
still carrying the infant in his arms.
At the corner a young man named
Ygnacio Jelomcnes grablied the pistol
from his grasp and .placed him under
arrest. He tied his hands with a
piece of rope and left him in my
charge while he went on horseback
after an otliecr."
Oificer Gilbert arrived shortly after
ward and conveyed the man to the
City Prison where he was charged
The reisjrter remained until Coroner
Meredith arrived and took charge of
WHAT THE MURDERER SAYS.
The City Prison was visited and the
murderer was found locked up in one
of the cells. He was called out. He
is a Mexican, rather small in stature,
and of very dark complexion. He has
a soft, gentle voice. He told the fol
"My wife and 1 separated two years
ago and we have not lived together
since. Boon after I went away to San
Francisco she went to live with an
other num. 1 asked her frequently to
let me have my little girls, so that I
could place them where they would lie
educated and brought up in decency.
She persistently refused. To-day
I went out to see my little,
girls. I did not go out to kill her.
She was in the yard and I asked her
to bring out the'children. She said
she would not do it. Presently I no
ticed my little girl, and I went up and
kissed her. I told her to bring her
little sister to me and she did ho. I
took the little one in my arms, but
my wife did her best to pull it away
from me. I then took my pistol out
of my belt and
I SHOT HKK.
"Yes, I urn sorry for it all, but it is
dove now. 1 thought it was liest to
kill her for my children's sake, and
that is why I did it. 1 did not want a
a woman who was not decent to bring
up my children. I brought suit twice
ih the Superior Court to get the chil
dren, but each time I lost. 1 met and
saw my lawyer yesterday about try
ing it again ;'but there is no use talk
ing about it now—it is all over."
The prisoner went back to his cell
and stretched himself out on the
bench as unconcernedly as though
nothing unusual had liappcned. Thfc
brute was armed with a Remington
45 pistol, and had a belt full of car
tridges. This looks as if he went to the
house with no good intentions.
HISTOBV OK THE FAMTKK.
Twelve years ago Francisco Calzada,
the murderer, anil Inez Comercey, the
victim, were married in tlie city of
Mexico. They lived happily for some
years and then moved to California,
first settling at San lluenavontura
where three children were born. After
sometime a cloud came over their hap
piness antl an estraugment ensued
This was made up however and the
couple moved to I>js Angeles street
and settled in the cottage where the
tragedy took place. Calzada secured
work in Wright's vineyard near Ver
nondale and everything for a time
went well with tho pair. About two
years ago however Calzada accused
his wife of infidelity and taking his
little boy left for Santa Barbara where
he put the boy ut school. Ho then
returned to San Fernando and got a
job of herding horses for A. Bubio.
To Uubio.about two weeks ago he
stated his whole family history. He
reviewed the fact at his separation and
deeply deplored the fact that he and
his wife could not agree. EH said
that he loved her even Btill as fondly
as he did on his wedding day, but he
said that her virtue was v thing of the
past. Since they parted she hud
taken into her affections a iiergonage
named A. Uomanero, with whom she
had since been living. Ho said that
he could not have his little girls domo
cilcd under the same roof of iniquity.
They were young and still virtuous and
he predicted a aad late for them in after
life if they were reurwd under the guM
ariee of a mother who had fallen. Re I
said that he intended coming to this
city and secure the children if he
could. Last Sunday night he arrived
here and took a room at the Italian
hoarding house on Alameda street.
He remained around the streets al
most continually until yesterday after
noon, when he decided to call out and
see his wife and try and get possession
of tho girls.
What occurred on his arrival at the
house of his former wife is related
above. It is the most horrible mur
der on record, and it was by tt scratch
that Calzada reached the jail alive.
He said that he wanted to die for
what he had done, and was perfectly
willing to Ixj lynched. An autopsy
will be held this" morning by Dr. Muc
tiowan, and at 10 o'clock the Coroner
will hold an inquest.
A t'lowinir Well of Uoea Water,
Another Pile-Driver Ordered.
A fine flowing well of sweet water
has lieen struck at La Ballona at a
depth of eighty-seven aud one-half
feet. This is important for the Har
bor Improvement Company, ns the
water in the surface well used in the
steam boilers was a little brackish and
might make mischief alter a long use.
Kx-Governor Perkins is much
pleased with the work at that place,
and says that if the managers go on
as they are now going they can send
in light-draught steamers in two weeks
from date. He and Capt. Goodnll
will return in a short time fur further
One of the largest coal dealers in
the State is here to ascertain on what
conditions he can get sufficient wharf
room for his business at tlie harbor.
Another pile-driver has lieen or
dered and will soon be at work, as tbe
present driver, although doing well,
cannot do all the work in tho time re
quired. The dredger is doing a good
work and is the finest on the coast.
The work of track-laving on the
Ballona branch of tbe California Cen
tral is going on steadily, and from the
present progress of tlie work, will
reach tidewater this week. From
present appearances much of the
freight now landed at San Diego for
tlie interior stations on the California
Central will be landed at Ballona
within a few weeks. That will create
a large change of business, as the line
from Ballona to Pasadena and other
places east to San Bernardino is 130
miles shorter than from San Diego.
The Tustin Auction Sale.
About four carloads of people wont
from this place yesterday to the auc
tion at Tustin. Among the number
were many who had never before vis
ited Tustin or the Santa Ana valley.
To say that they were charmed iH but
It) feebly express tlie feelings of those
who first looked upon this wonderful
valley and its ■'t'ume" town —Tnstin.
The excursionists were met at the
train by carriages and street cars
which conveyed them from Santa Ana
to Tiistin. Here all arrangements had
been made for the reception of the vis
itors. At the (/rounds H. H. Matlock
& Son, the i>opular auctioneers, cap
tured tlie wanderers and held them
captive for an hour and a half. In
that time they disposed of all the lots
— Tl in number —at ham Me auction,
for about 125,000. While the lots were
sold at fair figures, they were, never
theless, reasonable enough to (rive
each purchaser an opportttnfty to make
money on his investment. This pur
chasers will surely do, as in the judg
ment of all lots in TiiHtin will double
in value within four months from this
date. The unexcelled lieauty and pro
ductiveness of the locality warrants
such a prediction. In conclusion, it
may be well to say that great credit is
due to J. W. Gardner, as manager,
and H. H. Matlock it Son, as auction
eers, for the highly successful manner
in which both excursion and auction
sale was managed.
The Public Administrator.
Mr. Z. Decker, the Public Adminis
trator, was in the city yesterday. Mr.
Decker says that the little late un
pleasantness lietween himself and the
Grand Jury resulted from his failure
to each month make a report to the
County Clerk of the business trai s
acted in his office. Mr. Decker says
that he. was entirely ignorant of the
existence of such law, and the County
Clerk says that such law has not been
observed by any previous Administra
tor. The money receivod by Mr.
Decker was deposited with the County
Treasurer. As to the published rumor
that Mr. Decker had used a portion of
the public funds coming into his hands
for the pnqiose of speculating in real
estate, the gentleman is happy to state
that he was provided with sufficient
funds of his own, and was not obliged
to nor did lie draw upon the trust money
in his ham Is for real estate speculation.
He says that his bondsmen were will
ing to obligate themselves in any ad
ditional amount required. Decker
isn't built like people who do wrong
tilings intentionally, and his little neg
lect of making his report to the County
Clerk cost him the small sum of $25.
Nobody thought* nor does anybody now
think that Mr. Decker was guilty of
any intentional wrong. Mr. Decker's
statements are carried out by the facts
and the I Ikkai.h is glad to do him sub
Cinderella at the Opera House.
Next Monday, the Kth, Manager
Wyatt has Mrs. Benton's spectacular
opera of Cinderella interpreted by five
hundred of our little misses varying
in age from three to twelve, and
young ladies from fifteen to twenty
years. Mrs. Benton comes endorsed
and recommended in the highest
manner by the management of the
Madison Square Theater, New York,
and otner first class managers, and by
private, citizens of high social position,
all of whom join the public press in
admitting that Cinderella is one of the
most magnificently mounted and ex
quisitely managed spectacular and
musical efforts ever attempted. The
sale of seats commences on Thursday
morning, popular prices prevailing—
