FOUR CHUNKS OF LEAD IN HIM.
The Shooting: ot'D. F. Richards
Autonio Agruilar the Man Who At-

a Conflicting I,ot of Stories About the
oaSe**3ftr, ItlcharriV Statement
Not Corroborated by Ula
W If*,-The Details.
A startling and probably lata) shoot
ing BlTair, which created intense eacite
ment, took place last right at 8 o'clock
ou the couth sid'i of Second street, a
short distance below Los Angeles. D.
F. Riclmrdß was shot four times by
Tne phooting took place while tho
streets were full of pedostrians end the
four reports rang out clearly through the
night air. A rush waa at once made by
ail tlioae in the vicinity to the spot ami
the two actors in the tragedy were im
mediately seized. Aguilar was captured
by Sergeant Morton, he gave him
seli up quietly to the officer and
handed him his still Bmoking re
volver. The wounded man was
leaning agninst the side of the building
irroaning deeply and covered with blood.
He eras perfectly conscious and de
nounced Agniiar as his murderer. Both
men were at once hurried to the police
station, Richards walking all the way,
assisted by J. VV. Kgan, and leaving be
hind on the sidewalk a trail of blood.
At the station Aguilar was searched
and then consigned to cell Bin the city
prison. The weapon, by which the
shooting was done, was a 38-calibre
Smith & Wesson revolver, four chambers
of which had been discharged.
Richards was taken into the receiving
hospital and laid upon the operating
table, where an examination of the na
ture of his injuries was at once com
menced by Police Surgeon Bryant-
He grouned and writhed in agony
while beiug undressed, and as his cloth
ing was removed and the ghastly nature
of the wounds revealed, he certainly
had good cause for suffering. He had
received fonr gunshot wounds —three in
the body and one in the head.
' The shot wbich struck him in tne Lead
had evidently been fired from very close
quarters, because tbe front of his bat
was liberally sprinkled with partially
bnrned powder grains. The ball struck
him on top of the bead, about an inch
back from the commencement of the
hair, aud penetrating the skin, glanced
when it struck the skull, ploughing an
irregular and ragged furrow for about
three inches and then escaping. The
crown of the hat shows two bullet holes,
front and back, marking the entrance
and egress of the ball, and is a witness
to hie remarkable escape.
On tho outside of tbe right arm near
its junction with the shoulder another
ball entered, and passing through in an
upward direction escaped from tbe top
of the shoulder.
Another ball passed entirely through
the right arm a short distance below the
elbow, taking a downward slant. These
wounds are simply flesh ones, and while
of a painful nature, are not dangerous.
The fourth wound, however, is the one
which may cost Richards his life. The
ball entered tbe body on the right Bide,
in the neighborhood of tbe tenth rib,
6nd frlftriced downfarrl onH T*
us not been found, although it location
hag been repeatedly probed for. The
wounded man's injuries were at once
dreesed and morphine was given htm in
considerable quantities to' reduce his
pain. Up to an early hour this morning
he was resting easily. Dr. Bryant eon
eideres him in a dangerous condition;
in fact, his recovery remains entirely
with the effects of the bullet in the
body, which will be probed for again
While writhingon the operating table,
Richards stated that he had at last re
ceived what he had expected for years
"[ knew that man would shoot me,"
he said; "he always said he wonld, and
my wife is at the bottom of it all. She
only lately told me she would never stop
until she had succeeded in having me;
killed. She has been living with this
murderer. She won't live with me. Oh,'
what will become of my two poor chil
dren? lam 67 years old, and was born
in Camden, Me. Oh, what shall I do?
It's all that woman's fault. She is
wicked, deceitful and untrue, and won't
live with me, while she harbors and
loads with her caresses this miserable dog
Aguilar," and so the wounded man ran
on, talking incoherently, partially
crazed with pain and fright.
Antonio Aguilar, wbo occupies cell
No. 6in the city jail, was asked how he
came to shoot Richards, and told that
he was charged with being improperly
intimate with Mrs. Richards, indignant
ly denied the last assertion and claimed
that be had only acted as a man would
in defending his life.
Aguilar was extremely agitated and
distressed at his condition, and said:
"Richardson only two weeks ago point
ed a revolver at me in his wife's bouse
and said that if it were not for the pres
ence of tbe women he would kill me.
He has repeatedly threatened to kill
me, and I have been in fear of my
life. Tonight I did not see him
until we met. Richardson at once
commenced calling me tbe foulest
names, and said: 'I've found you at
last and will kill you,' at this he forced
his hand back into his hip pocket as if
to draw a pistol. What conld Ido but
fire; I did not know he was unarmed. I
did know of his threats to kill me on
eight. Richardson treats his wife
very badly, she has to support
herself and two children. He never
gives ber anything and what he makes
goes in drink.
"As to his saying I am the cause of
his wife leaving him, it is false, I never
had any improper relations with Mrs.
Richardson. I have always kept tbe
law and now I am forced into thia by no
choice of my own."
Just here Aguilar broke completely
down. He was born in Los Angeles and
both his parents reside here. He is a
hod carrier and was working on tbe
building on Spring street between Third

MRS. RICHARDS INTERVIEWED.
Late last njrlxt » , Herald reporter
called on Mrs. Kirrrards, Who lives on
the northwest corner of Kurtz and
Workman streets, East Los Angeles, the
number being 825 Knrtz.
Mrs. Richards had retired when the
reporter arrived, and when she learned
of the shooting was very much agitated.
Almost tne first questions she asked
were: "Is he dead ? Is there no hope
"Well, I am very sorry," said she,
"but I was afraid it would have been the
other man. It is a long story and I have
had a great deal of trouble with my hus
band, he would not support me and my
children and I have had to take in wash
ing for a living."
"Two years ago I got a divorce from
him on tbe charge of non-support and
111 treatment. The court awarded me
tbe two children and the property. He
came to me afterwards, however, and
promised to reform and I re
married him. Since then he has
been treating me shamefully. Last
October he left me and went to Gold
Run and I did not see him again until
about three weeks ago. During that
time I made np my mind tbat I would
procure another divorce, and witb that
intention sent up to Gold Run to see if
I could find him to have the papers
"About three weeks ago I went down
to Redondo on a picnic, and tbat day
while I was away my husband came
back, broke into the bouse and stole a
revolver I had and took the keys of the
house. Tbe district attorney, however,
made him return both to me. Just
look at the furniture of this room,
Richards has taken the most of it and
"He has taken an unaccountable dis
like to Antonio Aguilar, why I don't
know, and has brought charges against
me of criminal intimacy with him. I
have known Antonio and his family for
nine years, and be is a good boy. lam
43 years old, and Antonio is only 28.
Tbe idea of any such relations is absurd.
"Aguiler occupies with another boy
called Los Vauslay a bed in the barn out
there, and they both board with me and
pay me $4 a week, which is a great help.
He ie a bard working boy and is a hod
carrier. About two weeks ago my bus
band pointed a pistol at him and would
have killed him if I hadn't interfered.
He did that right here in this room.
Two days ago he told me he would kill
him on sight.
g}"Aguilnr has been almost scared to
death for the last two or three days; he
was a raid my husband might shoot
him while he waa working that he gave
up his job aud told his employer the
reason. He works for a contractor on
Spring street, between Third and
Fourth. Last night he was so worried
tbat he couldn't sleep.
I have some neighbors around me here
whom I think are responsible for tbe
trouble. They have been advising my
husband to kill Antonio, and have
charged me with intimacy with him.

After the calling of the roll the sub
ject of the purchase of land on the
Providencia ranch, on which to erect
the headworks for the supply of water to
the city, was brought before the counoil.
The city attorney reported that the
title to the land was good, and he also
presented an ordinance permitting the
city to purchase the land.
Mr. Munson moved that action be
taken on ihe subject at once.
Mr. Nickell stated the fact that he had
been away from the city for sometime
and that he did not understand all about
it. "I do not object to tho city buying
this land at all. bnt I do object and
would not rote that 130,000 be paid for
Mr. Innee rose and said that he was
rurprised to hear Mr Nickel say he did
not understand about the bonds. He
denied the fact that tbe council was be
ing crowded into a hasty decision. We
are here today, chosen by the people to
do a duty, which it is their wish to be
"I challenge any one to say that any
citizen opposes the purchase of these
bonds bat the City Water Co., and their
intimate friends. The citizens of this
city are with us today and desire the
purchase oi this ground."
Mr. Nickel said that he was a friend
of the city aud people he represented
and said, "In thia purchase of land I
claim that the injunction served on it
today put a different face on it. I be
lieve that $30,000 will buy that land 10
years hence, and it will do it then be
cause it would be worth no more at that
time. lam willing that the land be
bought and paid for from the proceeds
of the bonds, but I don't beleive in
paying out money which we have not
Mr. Marlz, one of the taxpayers, pro
tested that be thought the council was
acting hastily in the purchase of this
land. "When the land should be
owned by the city," said he, "there
would be no additional money on hand
to build the works, and if the bonds
won't sell, we may have this land lying
idle on our hands. I think if we at
tempt again to buy it, when in a better
condition financially, it can be pur
chased easily. I voted for the bonds
last time, but I am apprehensive that
they may not be voted by the citizens
again. I consider $30,000 a fair price
for tbe land."
Mr. Nickell jnit here stated in a very
forcible manner that he was heartily in
fav»r of buying tbe land, but he was not
present for advocating the buying of a
a piece of ground we don't know
whether we can use or not.
Mr. Munson seemed to think tbat if
probability was they would never be
abl« to g»t it, "Mr. Nickel!," said he,
"says we can get it any time, but if be
had been in the city and knew the feel
ing and the antagonistic attempts of the
City Water company, I think he would
change his opinion. If tbe City Water
company gets control of it there is no
telling what the city may be compelled
to pay for it in the future. Thia subject
of purchase has been before the council
for a long time, and has been thoroughly
considered, and I think it should be
definitely settled now. The land should
In response to a question from the
chair Mr. Rhodes said that tbe property
had been offered to the city for $25,000
by Mr. Pomeroy. "Now, however,"
said he, "there is Mr. Hooker to deal
with, and the price has risen. If we
lose this opportunity of purchasing it,
the probability is that when we are com
pelled to buy, ite owner at that time will
increase its price very largely."
Dr. Campbell said hs had been on both
committees and had looked into the
matter of the funds thoroughly, and ad
ded : "I know we have sufficient money
to buy this land. This proposition is not
on ordinary land; it is on the proposi
tion of buying land by means of which
the city can better be supplied with
water. I want just here to be placed on
record as being in favor of purchasing
On request of Mr. Munson, City En
gineer Dockweiler gave an exhaustive
description af the character of the works
it was intended to erect, and stated why
the ownership of the land in question
was of vital importance to the city. "We
are getting sufficient land by this pur
chase," said he, "to furnish the city
with water for all time, and we can get
50 feet higher than the Crystal Springs
company, and that will give much great
er pressure in the pipes than in those
owned by the City Water company. The
City Water company has been paying
Pomeroy and Hooker $5 a day for the
right to carry water across this land,
and if that is figured out it will be found
to be 6 per cent on $30,000."
Mr. Munson referred to an old Suit
brought 12 years ago, in order to pre
vent any one from obtaining water
rights, and which was now lying dor
mant in the co .rts, with a chance of
being called up at any time.
Mr. Nickei said: "The point now is
that we don't need the land at present.
We don't know whether we can use it
or not. I don't believe in taking 130,-
OOOof the city's money for that purchase.
We may use the land in a few years and
can buy it then."
The city engineer then said in reply:
"Suppose tbe people will vote the bonds
for us to build the water works, where
will we be able to find the land?"
Mr. Nickel then very vehemently de

dared that the land was 50 per cent
higher than it was worth and it could
be bought for $15,000. "I can say I
never spoke or. had a confidential word
with any member of the city water
works. I will fight them. I am in
favor of the water works, but I don't
want money spent for something we
cannot nseand spent before the bonds
Mr. Munson said he waa surprised to
see Mr. Nickel stand up nnd combat this
proposition for which the people had
voted 4to t. "We must buy the land
and we are now at a most critical point
in its purchase and I want to be placed
on record as believing that we should
buy the land, because I think it is in the
interest of the city to do so, and it may
be the saving of many thousands of
dollars. Kvery year that passes the
value of thn around will increase, for
instance look at tbe present value of
the Spring Valley works in San Fran
Mr. Nickell sprang up and exclaimed
in a very excitable manner that he was
there to contend for what was right, and
he was going to do it.
"In respect to the price of the land,"
said Mr. Campbell, "it was intimated to
me several days ago that tbe present
owners were offered more than the pres
ent figure, and I believe they can get
more money for it tomorrow, but they
want the city to own it."
Mr. Innee remarked that Mr. Niokell
voted against the purchase simply be
cause he was not posted and did not
thoroughly understand the benefits
v. inch would accrue to the city from its
Chairman Teed at this point of the
proceeding directed the city clerk to call
the roll for the votes of the members.
The motion was defeated on a vote of 6
to 3, President Teed and Messrs. Gaffer
and Nickell voting against the purchase
of the land.
A motion to adjourn was then intro
duced, but lost.
Tbe report of the finance committee
waa read and approved.
The qneation of the couplings to be
used on the wooden pipes of the outfall
sewer then came up, and after consider
able discussion the matter was referred
on motion of Mr. Nickel, to the city engi
neer and tbe sewer committee for con
sultation and a report be sent to tbe
council at their meeting next Monday.
The council then adjourned.
