Henry Kegel on Trial on a Charge
of Wife Murder.
A Bait Ahoat Hollers—Notes of Cmaes on
Trial Yestorday -Snv Suits Filed
With the County Olerk
An opinion was received yeaterday by
Deputy Clerk Sisnon from the supreme
conrt, for filing in thia city, in the case
of Charles Townsend, respondent, vs. J.
S. Briggs, appellant; an action for tbe
recovery of damages for personal in
juries to the amount of $20,000.
It appears that the respondent and
one Leach are joint proprietora of a shop
in San Buenaventura, where they carry
on the business of manufacturing ma
chines for pitting apricots and peaches.
On the afternoon of the 18th day of
June, 18S9, the plaintiff entered the
store to see an acquaintance who waa
employed in the shop, and stepping to a
machine, commenced to turn the wheel,
j making a loud noise, and thereby dis
turbing defendant, who was working in
an adjoining room. On being told by
[ defendant to let the machine alone, uu
|der pain of chastisement, he replied
with an oath, "I would like to see you
pound me," whereupon defendant oblig
ingly did pound him, using for that pur
pose a mallet, and employing such force
in the handling of the weapon, that he
knocked him across one of the ma
chines in dispute, causing Buch severe
injuries to plaintiff's lcit arm that it be
came necessary to amptutate it, in order
to save hie life.
The answer denied all the charges in
the complaint, and alleged tbat the
injuries received by complainant wero
caused by hia own wrongful acts and
carelessness, while wilfully and unlaw
fully trespassing upon the property of
defendant. A verdict for $500 was re
ceived by plaintiff upon the first trial,
but a motion for a fresh trial was made
and granted, aud ou appeal the order
was affirmed. (Townsend vs. Briggs, 88
Cal., 230.) On the second trial eleven
special interrogatories were submitted
to the jury and answered iv favor of the
plaintiff. A general verdict was altt i
returned, awarding the plaintiff $9000
damages, for which sum judgment was
entered. From this judgment and aa
order denying his motion for a new trial
the present appeal is prosecuted by de
In spite of allegations that the evi
dence did not justify the verdict, that
the damages allowed were excessive and

court found that, although tbe'evidence
waß conflicting, still, that there was suf

and order appealed from are affirmed.
He Ia on Trial, Charged With Killing
Henry Kegel appeared before Judge
Smith and a jury in department one of
the superior court yesterday for trial
upon the charge of murder, he being ac
cused of having caused the d„ath of his
wife, Alice, on July 23, ISS7, at Ounon
delOro. He was defended by Messrs.
Baker and Lehman, while Deputies
District Attorney Conkling and Dupuy
appeared to conduct the case for the
Most of tho day's session was con
sumed in the task of eelecting 12 jurors
to try tlie caae, but at 4 o'clock p. m.,
tbe following jury bud beun empaneled
and tho trial wae commenced in earnest:

Freeman, S. D. Crow, J. S. Ulick, L. E.
Bayer, E. M. Shiprnan, D. W. Rowland
aud A. W. Patton.
' After the usual preliminaries, each as
the reading of the information, etc., the
prosecution opened its case by calling
J. M. Meredith to the witness stand.
His testimony, which was very brief,
was to the effect that he was coroner for
this county in ISS7 and held an inquest
in this city upon the body of Alice
Kegel, on July 31st of that year, three
days after her death, which occurred at
the county hospital.
At the close of witness' testimony,

Aylsworth, B. B. Brown, R. Cahill, J.
G. Glenny, F. W. Hetz, J. Kennedy, J.
March, A. Bmith, B. Stead, A. Thorne
and A. H. Wood.
It appears from the evidence that on
November 11, 1890, a contract was en
tered into with defendants to erect and
construct throe return fine tubular boil
ers, with manure-burning setting for
$(i()00. Theae boilers were erected and
$4000 paid to plaintiff, part payment on
The balance of $2021 07 not having
been paid, plaintiff brings suit to recov
er the same. In answer, defendant
claims that when the boilera came to be
tested they were not satisfactory, and,
therefore, a cross complaint is filed, in
which defendant claims damages in the
Bum of $6,079.94, by reaeon of the failure
of plaintiff to perfect the boilers within
the time named in the contract.

roll was approved and sent to the coun
cil for ratification.
COMMUNICATION FROM MR. GRAVES.
Mr. W. F. Graves, who built tbe fire
alarm system, sent in a communication
reflecting very severely upon Mr. Ho
gan, the city electrician. Its great
length forbids publication.
Mr. Brodrick said it Was a very im
pertinent communication, and be moved
it be laid upon the table.
Mr. Kuhrts said that where there was
no much smoke there must be some fire.
Before Mr. Hogan took charge every
thing worked weil. Now we have tele
phone alarms, day after day, on account
of the alarm system not working. So
far as tbe impertinence of the commu
nication was concerned Mr Graves' rep
utation was at stake. He put in the
alarms and left them in good working
order, so tbat he is entitled to some re
spectful notice by the board. Tbe com
munication was, after some debate, or
dered to be placed on file.
APPROVED AND ORDERED PAID.
The demands against th 9 department
being covered by requisitions, were or
dered paid. Tbey amount to $224.01,

years of experience in the alarm tele
graph servica of San Francisco and prop
erly vouched by the several superintend
ents of alarm telegraph service in tbat

MR. lIOOAN'S DECAPITATION.
Mr. Kuhrts moved that tho officn of
electrician, now held by Mr. Hogan, be
declared vacant on and after the Ist day
of March next. He said he did this not
out of personal dislike of Mr. Hogan,
but because he believed that no man
could serve two masters. Mr. Hogan
was also in the employ of the District
Telegraph company, and he bslieved
that the city electrician should give his
undivided attention to the city's work.
The mayor inquired whose name was
to be used to fill the position.
Mr. Kuhrts said tho matter was some
thing that was a matter of indifl'erece to
him. He would be in favor of any com
petent person that might be suggested.
The mayor said it might work badly.
Suppose that Mr. H >gan, hearing that
hie office had been declared vacant on
the let of March, should resign today
and leave the department without, an
Mr. Hogan, having notified the board
that he had something to communicate,
was then called in. Ilia communication
waa merely in reference to expense in
curred in repairs to the line.

moment, then sect in his resignation by
Mr. Brodrick. The resignation was ac
cepted, to take effect March Ist.

THAT ALLEGED JAIL.
An Attempt Bolue; Made to Render lt
The Bubject of a city jail that
furnishes secure abiding places for
the prisoners that come within the
supervision of the police department,
occasioned considerable comment yes
terday. In view of the repeated escapes
that have been made, Chief Glass or
dered changes made in the jail. Some
partitions were taken ont and the rear
part of tbe jail was the scene of Boine
confusion during the morning.
The changes that were made bring
the prisoners more directly under the
view of the jailors, and they will have
the chance of seeing what the prisoners
are doing more than they have been
able to do heretofore. The fact remains
that the only way in which prisoners
can be kept in the abaolete place called

OPINIONS OF KZtItELE MEN WHICH
riumv AN Kst A OF PROSPERITY.
Merchants and Real Estate Men Unite
ln Expressing a Rose - Colored
View of tho Condition
Businesa in Lob Angelas is constantly
on the increase, and the general feeling
among buaineas men is that tbe outlook
for a brisk buainesß spring aud summer
was never better. This is the consensus
of opinion of merchants engaged in every
line of trade who have been interviewed
by a llkkalo reporter during the last
few days. In no single instance waa a
busineßß man approached who com
plained of the present condition of trade.
In every caae they were satisfied, and
with many there was a feeling of ex
ultant glee over the way trade was.
J. T. Sheward, the well known dry
goods merchant, in a conversation with
a Hkbald representative said: !
"With me the outlook never was
brighter and not only thie, trade
than at thia time of tbe year
was never better at the pres
present, and it ia just 30 per cant ahead
of what it waa in February, 1802. Now
when 1 sell, and merchants in my line
sell lots of goods, it ia certainly a sure
indication of the general prosperity pro
vailing in the community. The spring
trade has opened up right lively. Not
only is thia true of Los Angeles city but
my out of town orders are al»o on the
increase. My opinion is that this year
will be proßperoua throughout in South
ern California and next year will come
the real activity in all lineß of trade, real
estate and everything."
Mr. J. M. Hale, of tho firm of J. M.
Halo A Co., dry goods merchants, waa
also seen. Mr. Hale spoke of tbe exist
ing businesa activity in the most en
couraging tones. His firm, ho utated,
was really surprised at tbe amount of
business Viey were doing, but they were
always prepared for more.
ln real estate the sales still continue
to be quite frequent. Mr. S. K. Lind
ley reports quite a demand for propetty
at East Whittier. Several sales have al
so been made iv the Adams-street Horre
