THE BEBSION OPENED.
The audience that oathArprl at thai
opening meeting waa composed almost
exclusively of women, two or three
lonely representatives of the male side
Of the house being present.
The meeting was called to order by
the president, followed by prayer by
Rev. Florence Kallock, assistant pastor
of the Universalist cbnrch.
The reports were then received from
the various districts, and the real busi
ness of the session commenced with an
informal talk by Mrs. Kate Tapper Gal
pin of Los Angeles on the subject of
How to get the most ont of the parlia
She made a strong and effective plea
for nnity among the various elements
that constituted the convention, urging
that all sectarian and partisan spirit bo
laid aside and that the one object—to

Her remarks » u re exceedingly clear,

An invitation was then read from
President Keyes of Throop Polytechnic
Institute, offering the freedom of the in
stitution to the visitors.
On motion the invitation was accepted
and a vote of thanks extended.
Mrs. Stephens, the president, was next
heard to excellent advantage in a short
address explaining the object and aim
of the parliament and revlewipg its
history. She opened by stating that a
broad and liberal spirit was among the
chief things to be cultivated in tbe
assemblage and that it was the earnest
desire of the projectors of the move
ment that every thing of a denominational
character be kept out of its proceedings
That the doors of the parliament stand
open to every woman regardless of re
ligious belief, and expressing a hope
that notwithstanding the diverse inter
ests that would be brought together that
all would work in harmony and good fel
lowship. . This address closed tbe morn
ing session, and an adjournment was
taken nntil 2 p.m.
The Afternoon Meeting.
Promptly at 2 p.m. the delegates were
called to order.
The flrßt paper of the afternoon was
delivered by Mrs. Louise T. W. Conger
of Pasadena, who chose as her subject.
Heredity and Environment, a most deep
and interesting theme, that has a most
direct and important bearing upon the
individual as well as national life.
The paper was written in moat excel
lent style, and dwelt upon the import
ant responsibility that is vested in the
parent and' the sacred dnty that de
volves upon them in bringing forth well
born children. The contrast between
the effects of heredity and environment,

was brought out, the idea being that
much of the undesirable that heredity
beqteathed to an offspring may be
effaled by a proper environment during
tho tender years of childhood.
Tie reading of the paper proved in
tensely interesting to the audience, and
there was a very general participation in
ths discussion that followed, led by Mrs.
H. B. Manford of Sierra Madre, who, in
the course of a 10-minutes talk, brought
out a world of unique ideas.
The Duty of Christian Women to
Society, was the subject of a well
hsndled paper by Mrs. Martha S. F.
J'.rnt of Pasadena.
The field covered by this address was
exceedingly broad, and most interesting.
The conflicting duties of home and
demands of society were touched upon,
and a proper medium pointed out.
While the duties of the wife and mother
were given a prominent and important
position, the speaker holds that in the
hems is the proper, and in fact the only
place, to inaugurate permanent and far
reaching reforms. The paper closed
with a plea for a cultivation of the
snirit of charity, a quotation from
Paul's beautiful reference to this virtue
being given with much effectiveness.
Mrs. Francis M. Elderkin of Los An
geles led the debate that followed the
reading of this article.
The interest aroused by the ladies was
attested by the large number that joined
in the debate, which was continued for
over an hour.

close of the debate, the chair announc

The discussion of this paper waa led
by Dr. Bridge, who waa, as it happened,
the only man honored with a place upon
the programme of the parliament. The
doctor took up the diecusaion in a most
happy manner, admitting many of the
difficulties which women physicians
labor nnder, bnt contending that at
preaent they atand on the aame footing
aa the men, bo far as college advantages
are concerned, and that the demand that
more medical colleges be opened to
women ia nonsensical. He contended
that coeducation of the eexea waa not
deairable in medical colleges, and that
better resultß could be obtained by sep
arate colleges for each.

THE CASE OF PEOPLE VS. DORIAN.
The Decision Rendered tester
day by Judge Smith.
Matters Which Were Acted Upon by
A Disagreeing .Jury— The .fustics Waa
Sick—The Federal Courts—New
Suits Filed — Sundry
Superior Judge Smith in the appeal
case of tbfe People vs, 0. P. Dorian yes
terday handed down an opinion
reversing the decision. of the
lower court. The defendant Dorian
was convicted of keeping a dis
orderly house at Santa Monica. The
opinion of Judge Smith is as follows:
The defendant was convicted -in the
recorder's court at Santa Monica on a
complaint charging him with keeping a
disorderly house and also permitting
riotous and disorderly conduct in his
Section 6 of ordinance 84 provides a
penalty for keeping a disorderly house,
and section 6of ordinance 122 provides
a penalty for permitting any riotous or
disorderly conduct in a saloon.
The penalty for violation of the first
is a fine not to exceed $100, or by im
prisonment in the town jail not less
than 10 days nor more than three
The penalty provided in section 6,
ordinance 122, is a fine not to exceed
$200, or imprisonment not to exceed 90
days, or both.
From the above it is plainly apparent
that two offenses are charged in the
complaint, and hence the complaint
should have been set aside. While it is
true no demurrer ia provided for in crim
inal practice or police courts, still it
may be used, or the same end can be
reached by motion.
Section 1526 of the penal code pro
vides what a complaint shall contain in
these cases, and the language there ex
cludes the idea of two offenses being
charged in the same complaint.
It is also nrged by the defendant that
the ordinances npon which defendant
was convicted are in conflict with sec
tion 316 of ths penal code. If bo, the
ordinances, or at least those portions so
in conflict, are void. This is the settled
law of this etate. Bat it must be the
Section 6 of ordinance 84 was repealed
by sect inn 6of ordinance 122, and said
section 6 provides, among other things,
as follows: "Nor shall he permit any
riotous or disorderly conduct in his sa
loon or place of business." This is not
in conflict with seotion 316 nor any gen
eral law of the state. Section 6, ordi
nance 4, has the following provision:
"Any person who shall keep or main
tain . . . any disorderly house .
. . shall, on conviction," etc. This is
not in conflict with section 316 afore
said, for it is not made a crime there to
keep a disorderly honse, but, in sddition
to disorderly house, the "peace," com
fort or decency of thenmmediate neigh
borhood must be habitually disturbed
The complaint, however, charges two
distinct offenses, for which a demurrer
snoma nave neen sustained. Judgment
reversed, with direction to fe'.le court to
set aeide the complaint, with leave to
file a new complaint, and it is so or
The Justice Was Sick.
There was about half the population
of Downey on hand in Justice Bartholo
mew's court yesterday morning. The
good people waited around a conple of
hours, talked with one another, stood in
the hallway, Bat down on the stairs and
then went away.
The multitude had been subpoenaed
to be present to testify in the case of
the People vs. Mrs. E. O'Connell, who
is charged with subornation of perjury.
Mrs. O'Connell was to have had her pre
liminary examination yesterday. About
GO witnesses are to testify in the case.
It is claimed she suborned Asa Oline, a
15-year-old boy, to commit perjury in a
case that was on before Justice Settle at
Downey. As Justice Settle was sick the
examination could not go on. Justice
Bartholemew bad to continue It and the
60 witnesses had to return to Downey
after idly spending the day.
The Jury Disagreed.
Charles Peterson was tried yesterday
in department one of the superior court
on a charge of receiving stolen goods.
The jury was out about seven hours but
could not agree, and was discharged.
This was the second trial of Peterson.
On the first trial he was convicted, but
was given a new trial on a technical
error in the drawing up of tbe Verdict of
The testimony taken yesterday was
substantially the same us that taken at
the first trial, but it was not regarded bb
strong enough to convict by two men.
It was aheged that Peterson purchased
a revolver from Joe Bellisee, knowing
the same to be stolen.
The Federal Courts.
Tbe trial of Ah Wing on a charge of
manufacturing opium was commenced
yesterday in the United States district

government to show that Ah Wing man
ufactured opium in Hanford, Fresno

mony the defendant's attorney moved

THAT POWER OF ATTORNEY.
Attorney Hayford Says Ho Consented to
Attorney Hayford stated yesterday
that the revocation of Bentley'a power
of attorney to himself was done of his
own consent. "The power of attorney to
me was made irrevocable," said the at
torney, "but I gave my written consent
to its revocation, in order that the other
counsel for the defense might get deeds
to certain property to secure their fees.
I did not get a deed to secure my fee. I
got it in another way. Yes; I am still
leading counsel for Bentley, and shall so
remain until he is acquitted or hung.
It is possible that I will consent to a con
tinuance of. the examination of Bentley
It is Btated on good authority that the
prosecution is fully aware of the where
about of the $11,000 raised by Bentley
through a mortgage on the Nordholt
The prosecution is ready, it is under

covered from his recent illness.
Apropos of the case, the Phoenix, A.
T., Gazette Bays: Henry Bentley, who
engaged in the business of marrying
rich widows in California, and who ia
charged with the murder of hia wife in
Loa Angeles, and against whom there
seems to be a-pretty strong case, was
formerly mail rider between Prescott
and the Bradshaw mountains, and ie
well known in Phoenix.

called on the district attorney yester

Sometime ago Mrs. Lagier's husband
died from the disease glanders'. He bad
caught it from two horses which he
ownea. The horses were shot.
But it so happened that these two
horseß were about all the property that
Lagier had. They were condemned by
tbe authorities and shot but there is no
provision made by law by which the
party who owns tho diseased and con
demned animals is to be remumerated
for the loss thus incurred.
In this particular case a great hard
ship was worked, as Mrs. Lagier ie left
witn nothing. The district attorney
presented the matter to the board of
supervisors. An endeavor will be made
to render some assistance, though of
course the unfortunate woman can re
ceive nothing solely in consideration of
the horses being ahot.

A. J. Eby was allowed $44 for 22 days'

THE ELECTRICIAN'S REPORT.
The electrician, J. H. Hogan, filed a
lengthy report in which he called at
tention to the condition of the alarm
service. The following are extracts
from the document:
The motives of my recent report on
the fire alarm system seem to have been
misconstrued. I wish it to be distinctly
understood that I am not the agent of
the (jamewell or any other fire alarm
company ; and also that if 1 cannot op
erate the system to my satisfaction I
have the courage to say co and to state
the reasons why it will not so work. I
challenge anyone to bring before me an
unbiased man, versed in electrical mat
ters, who will pronounce the present
fire alarm system a good and reliable
Sinco I have been appointed electric
ian I have rebuilt nearly the entire sys
tem, and tbe city has not been put to
tbe expense of one ebllar for poles.
. . . I have been etkmomicai to the
extent that the beßt possible service
was rendered by the system at the least
One matter upon this subject to which
' I wish to call your attention is the
Baying which I have made in the pur
chase of zincs, of which we use about
SOO per year. When I assumed charge
of the alarm system 1 found that for
yeara the city had been paying 60 cents
each for battery zincs; I knew this to
be exorbitant, and bo notified the
foundrymsn furnishing them, and Bince
that time up to date I have been fur
nished with tbe same grade of zincs by
the same party at 25 cents eacb. . . .
Lately I have not had the nfce-nary
co-operation on tbe part of the officials
and employees of the tire department in
keeping the fire alarm system in proper
working order. On the sth day of the
present month the Boyle Heights sys
tem opened at 2:10 a.m. The gongs at
engine bouses 3 and 6 and at the chief's
residence struck one tap. The bell at
my residence ia on the East Bide circuit,
and did not strike. I waa not notified,
and consequently knew nothing about
it until late in the morning. The reason
given by the chief for not notifying me
was that he did not know my telephone
number. . . .
In reference to the remarkß made at
your meeting of the Bth met. as to some

cteief emineer or superintendent of the
fire alarm system, and shall deposit with
the chief engineer or Buperintendent of
the fire alarm aystem the sum of twenty
five (25) dollars from which amount the
cost of moving the wires will be de
ducted and the balance, if any, re
