Testimony Relative to the
Killing of Pietro Paglinso.
THE BTOEY PARTIALLY TOLD.
The Boys Arrested and Their Guns
Taken Away by the Uncle
of the Deceased.
The Coroner's jury which was im
paneled yesterday afternoon to decide
upon the causes which led to the death
of Pietro Paglinso did not progress very
far with the work. A considerable de
gree of interest attaches to this inquest,
as the evidence taken may be of a sort
to cause the two boy?, Stephen Smith
and Charles Oashen to be held for mur
der. They were brought in from Pasa
dena yesterday morning and were taken
to the County Jail. Their parents ac
companied them to the inquest and
watched the inquest with an intensity ot
interest which can well be imagined.
The boys are of a good family and excel
Only three witnesses were heard,
Deputy-Sheriff Botello, Dr. McGowan
and F. Paglinso, the uncle of the dead
boy. Deputy-Sheriff Botello testified
that he had gone to the scene of the
affair and had seen the body with a gun
shot wound in the left breast. He
hunted through the neighboring country
with Deputy-Constable Donahue. They
met some wood-choppers who gave a de
scription of two boys who came
over the hill which tallied with that
given to witness by the uncle of
the deceased. He then lost tract Of tbem
and going to Pasadena, notified Deputy
Sheriff Slater and gave him a description
of the boys. Subsequent to tbe arrest of
the boys he bad a conversation with
them and one of them said they had not
taken the guns out of the house, but the
young Italian himself, who wanted
money for them, after he had given them
up. Smith afterward said they had been
in the shanty where the guns were, [bat
had taken nothing out with him. He said
they were standing outside by the door
when the young Italian rushed in for his
gun. They then turned around and
walked away. The Italian followed
them down the hill. At this point the
witness testified that Smith was stopped
from telling anything mrther by his at
torney, who told him to say nothing fur
ther if he wanted him to go on with the
case. Witness had asked Smith if he
had not carried the shot gun, and Smith
had replied that he had.
Dr. McGowan testified to having ex
amined the bcdv of deceased, and that
he had found the heart filled with bird
F. Paglinso, the uncle of Pietro, testi
fied that his nephew was 16 years old,
and worked for him on his farm at Syca
more Grove. On Saturday morning last
he saw two persons shooting on
his farm by the watermelon patch.
One had a shot gun and the
other a rifle. He went down to arrest
them and they ran away. He had his
rifle in his hands and called to them to
stop in an angry tone of voice. They
then stopped and he asked them what
they were hunting. They replied they
were shooting quail. He asked them
for a piece of deer, and said, "You have
killed a deer." They said they had
not killed a deer, and that they came
from Pasadena. He then asked them
which road they came to see if they had
passed by the notices he had posted
warning people not no shoot on his farm
under penalty of the law. They pointed
out the road and he then arrested tbem
and took their guns away. He took the
boys to his house and the boys talked
gently and asked him to let them go and
they would not come back again.
He told them that he would
charge them $25 for shooting on his
place, and they said they would give
him $15. Ho said be did not do this so
much for the money as to be sure and
keep them away. The boys then said
they would give him $20, antt he said he
would take it, and told them not to say
anything about it, as he thought they
were too young, and he did not want to
take them to court, as they had to go to
school. He had been informed that he
had the authority to arrest persons shoot
ing on his ranch. The boys asked him
to let them have the guns, as they did
not belong to them, but he said they
could not have them until they brought
the $20. He told them to come Sunday,
as he had to go to town, and they said
they could not come on ' Sun
day, and that if tbey found the
money they would come back
that day or Monday. They asked him
who would give them the guns if they
couldn't find him, and he replied that
they could "holler loud" and some of
the men on the place would hear them
and would come and give them the guns
for $20. The boys then went away about
fifty yards and then asked to be allowed
to eat their lunch in the house. He told
them to go up to a corner of a little
cation where their was water and eat
their luuch. The boys went about ten
or fifteen yards more and stopped and
ate their lunch there. Witness then left
and went up the hill to arrest some other
parties whom he bad heard shooting,
and when he returned the boys were
gone. The guns were in the house then,
and he left shortly after for this city
with a load of wood. When he returned
home about 9 o'clock in tbe
evening his other nephew told
him that he had heard a
shot, but did not know who
fired it. He went"nto the house and
saw Pietro dead on a bed. He then came
to Los Angeles and notified the Sheriff.
On his return he looked around and saw
that the boys guns were gone. He got a
lantern and went to the place where his
nephew had fallen. It was about 00 or 75
feet away from the house. He saw the
footprints of the two men, and they were
the same as those made by the hoys. He
had noticed the shoes worn by the boys,
and remembered the marks they made.
The testimony of Paglinso was taken
with much difficulty, as he speaks but
little English, and no interpreter could be
secured. He showed great irascibility of
temper when he was interrupted, and at
the end when he was asked by one of
the jurymen whether the two young men
who were seated opposite him, indicating
Smith and Cashen, were the two who
came to his house, he sprang to his feet
and gesticulating wildly, declared that
they were the murderers of his nephew.
He was restrained from making any as
sault on them, and apologized for his
violence, saying that his grief had crazed
him. In order that Paglinso might at
tend the funeral of his nephew, which
was set for 3 o'clock, the jury adjourned
about that time and will not come to
gether again until to-morrow morning.

THE LOS AKGELES DAILY HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, NOTEMBER 6, 1888,
CHARGED WITH ADULTERY.
an. Ollle Taylor, WUo Charge* Ber
Raabana with Cruelty.
Mrs. OUie Taylor, of No. 12 Jackson
street, was arrested yesterday afternoon
on a warrant issued through Justice
King's court, charging her with adultery.
She is a bright, comely young woman,
who gives her age as only 17. When
brought to the station she indulged in a
long and hard fit of cryinr, but at last
became calm enough to talk, and told a
She said that she had been married to
William Taylor, her present husband,
two years ago at Napa City, "she
being then a young girl- of 15.
He soon turned out to be. a very unsatis
factory life-partner, as he did very little
for her support, and frequently beat and
ill-treated her. They lived in a miserable
fashion, he often coming home drunk
and threatening her with desperate vio
On one occasion about six months ago
he gave her a terrible beating, as a re
sult of which she was unconscious for
several hours. He left the house and the
neighbors cared for her. Taylor went
away from the city, and was gone so long
thatOllie hoped she was rid of him.
There was some furniture in
the house and she disposed
of this and and went to work at
the house of an acquaintance. When
the husband came back he was very
angry and had Mrs. Taylor arrested for
theft, but she was discharged. She then
determined to iiistitute proceedings for a
divorce, and with wnat money she could
save from her earnings she employed a
lawyer and started the machinery of the
courts at work to give her the desired
In the meantime OUie had made tbe
acquaintance of a Frenchman by the
name of Desretus Joseau and the two
agreed to marry as soon as
the divorce proceedings had come to
a conclusion. The two secured rooms
with a German woman at No. 19 Jackson
street. They had been leading a quiet
life here for some time when tbe hus
band discovered them and determined to
have his wife arrested for adultery. The
fact of the crime appears to be tolerably
evident as Joseau makes no effort to
deny it, and their living together is said
to be known to a number of people who
reside in that vicinity.
Joseau says that he did not consider he
was doing anything very wrong in living
with tbe woman and that he will do
bis best to help her out of the
scrape. As her husband had long
since deserted her, and divorce pro
ceedings were well under way, he sup
posed, he says, that this practically
freed the woman from the bonds of legal
matrimony. The young woman evidently
regards the case from the same point of
The husband Taylor says that the
woman has always been untrue to him,
and that he left her on that account.
That he gave her on parting $500, and
she has bestowed this money on the
Frenchman. This story is vigorously
denied by the woman and Joseau.
A Seantau'a Mult. #
A decision was rendered yesterday by
District Judge Erskine M. Ross, in the
case of August Lutke vs. the British
bark Bruckley Castle. This was a case
in which the libellant is an ordinary sea
man, who signed articles for a voyage from
Penarath (Cardiff) to Monte Video, and
any ports within the limit of 75 degrees
north and 60 degrees south latitude, the
time of service not to exceed three
years and to end in the United Kingdom
or on the continent of Europe, between
the Elbe and Brest. He had left the
sbipat San Diego in August last aud
claimed pay at the rate of £'i a month.
The defense objected inasmuch as it was
a case of a foreign seaman on a foreign
ship, and asked that it be referred to
other tribunals, but this plea was thrown
out. The defense, however, showed
that the libellant had deserted and the
court dismissed the libel at the libellant's
For Weal or for Woe.
The happiest concourse of all Los An
geles gathered at 115 South Spring street
yesterday afternoon. It was a wedding
party; the groom and bride both young,
handsome and radiant with the belief of
life's goodness of reward. It was an
other German union, that of Mr. Rudolph
Stuettig and Miss Augusta Geisler, but
three months from the Fader land. The
comely and girlish bride is the sister of
Mrs. William Wepking, of this city. The
happy young benedict is a promising
young business man, and now that he is
married and settled down will forever
remain a solid Angelefio. The wedding
dinner was an elegant affair and the
hundred or so guests who partook so de
clared. The Herald congratulates the
young voyagers upon the matrimonial
A railroad man in from Arizona, says
that the thirty-five miles of road between
Fairbanks and Biebee is all graded, and
the tracklayers have commenced laying
down the rails. Contracts for building
sixty miles more of road have recently
been obtained by contractor Joe Hamp
-Bon, and it is believed that this new con
struction is to be done between Calaba
sas and Tucson. The Herald's inform
ant said that Arizona is livelier now than
it has been for some time. There is a
mining boom throughout the territory,
and numbers of capitalists are coming in
and investing heavily. The cattle land
is being fast settled up, and this is very
advantageous to Los Angeles, as nearly
all Arizona's hay, fuel and general sup
plies come from this city.
Anxious to Vote.
The railroad men flocked into town
by the score yesterday, and numbers
more will arrive this morning, so as to
cast their ballots at to-day's election.
Messrs. H. B. Wilkins, of the Santa Fe,
and C. F. Smurr, of the Southern Pacific,
will leave the city during the day for
St. Louis, where the Transcontinental
Association meeting is to be held on the

Southern Pacific will be represented by
Messrs. J. C. Stubbs and R. Gray.
A Burlington excursion will leave this
city for the East on Thursday.
In future all of tbe Union Pacific ex
cursionists will enjoy a 24 hours lay-over

A party of American gentleman, who

A discouraging situation, truly.
"Never mind, lean row you there in

had charge of the party, as their mur
"Why man, it is seven miles, there are
four of us in this heavy bota—its a big
job you undertake," said one.
"No matter, I have done the likes be
fore and can do it again," cheerfully re
plied the broad-shouldered Irishman, as
he stowed away the sail and bent to tbe
oars. He was a splendid oarsman and
the boat was soon under headway again.
"What would I not give to enjoy your
health and strength," remarked the Pro
"Yes, I am pretty healthy, and though
I am past sixty I feel as strong as ever,"
replied the guide. "Butonly three years
ago I stood at death's door, and never
thought to pull an oar again. You see,
I was in the woods all winter, logging,
and I got into the water one day and
caught cold. It settled on my lungs and
I had a bad caugh which hung on till
I ran down almost to a skeleton."
"Call in a physician ?"
"Yes, I went twenty miles through
the bush to see a doctor; he gave me
some medicine, but it didn't help me
"How was the cure effected?"
"An old Scotch lady, who had come
over from the States, gave me a prepara
tion of balsams and herbs, which she
said the early settlers in America used,
and it soon stopped my cough and put
me on my feet again."
One has but to travel along the frontier
to learn how easy it is to get along with
out doctors, and how effective are the
natural remedies which the old grand
mothers know how to prepare. They
often cure where the best physicians
Every mother of a family knows how
coughs and colds are quickly and radi
cally cured with syrups and teas made
from balsams and herbs which "grand
mother taught us how to make."
Warner's Log Cabin cough and con
sumption remedy was, after long investi
gation into the merits and comparison
with other old time preparations,selected
from them because proved to De the best
of them all. It has brought back the
roses to many a pallid cheek—there is no
known remedy its equal as a cure for
coughs and colds.

Delicate mechanism Disordered and
The most delicate and intricate piece of
mechanism in the human structure is the
nerves. As the telegraphic wires transmit the
electric force, so do these sensation, the focal
point being the brain, where sensation centers.
Mental anxiety weaken, this mechanism, sud
den shocks paralyze it, but dyspepsia is the
most obdurate foe. This foe is utterly defeated
by the lrresistab c tonic, Uostetter's Stomach
Bitters, and tbe cessation of disorder In the
stomach is reflected in brain and nerves by re
stored tranquility, and tranquility of the
nerves implies, in this instance, renewed vigor.
A distinguished medical authority says, "The
victim of nervous disquietude who flndschloral
at night and bromides by day necessities,
should know that a cure must be sought among
agencies which strengthen the nerves," ana
assuredly Hostetter's Stomach Bitters has
proved to be the best of these. Malarial com
plaints, constipation, bllllousncss, inactivity of
the kidneys and rheumatism often involve
nervous troubles by sympathy, and are all
eradicated by the Bitters.
A Double Influence.
Dr. Flint's Remely is a medicine which will
cure cases of neuralgia which other remedies
have failed to reacb, as It exercises a double
influence, in one case over the circulation, ai d
in the other over the nerves. Descriptive
