the Ladles' Donblea—Notes
From tbe Courts.
Yesterday waa a perfect day for thoae
ln attendance at the Santa Monica Lawn
Tennia tournament, although not quite
as delightful for tbe players, the morn
ing being aomewhat hazy and cloudy,
thua making the light extremely trying
at times, but tbe young men put up ten
nia that was simply immense, and the
audience, which was a large one, waa
more than delighted. Every event waa
an exciting one, and when Lester and
M. A. Chase met in the all-comera
singles the interest and excitement was
well nigh at fever heat.
It waa a pretty game nobly fought,
hotly contested and well won, and vic
tor and vanquished have both of them
juat cause to be proud of their efforts,
and I know they have the thanka of the
entire audience for furniahing th6mauch
a game to admire.
Mr. W. E. Leater haa greatly improved
since laat year and one can hear it on all
eidea that it not thia year at come future
tournament he will wrest tbe laurel
wreath of the championahip from the
brow of a worthy antagonist and cover
himself with glory.
M. A. Chase ia cautious, alert, fear
leas and ever watchful of the points of
The play commenced at 3 p. m..with
tbe grand stand and courts crowded to
their utmost capacity.
In the firat act Lester showed up in
remarkable form and won by the score
of 7-6. In tbe aecond act Chase turned
the tablea, winning by the score of 6-3,
thia brought the excitement up to fever
heat foT the third.
Tomorrow will be a great day. Tbe
all-comers' doubles will be finished aa
will the ladies' einglea. And in the
afternoon tbe finals of the ladies' sin
gles, and the tournament winner will

Joe Daily, the great non-touchable
San Francisco player, will arrive, and

aa ia tennie, tbe equal of any.
TUB PLAY OF YUSTKRDAY.
Play commenced yesterday morning
with L. N. Chase and Routh aa antago
nists in the third round of all-comers'
singles at 9 o'clock, with a good attend
ance and spirited play on the part of tbe
contest ante. It was a pretty match,
both of the young men playing a strong
game and evenly matched. L. N. Chase
finally won by the score of 7-5, 7-9, 6 2.
M. N. Chase, the Riveraide favorite
and all-around good player, met tbe
San Francisco crack tennisite in thie
round. It was a beautiful game where
acience reigned euprems, and both men
were on their mettle to win. Stetson,
who playa a well nigh perfect game, waa
in excellent form and waa the perfection
of agility and watchfulness, aa he an
awered the shrewd attacks of his wily
opponent. His drives were extremely
severe, bnt Chase, who ia playing an im
mense gams, which haa won the admi
ration of all. eueceeded fn defeating his
northern friend by the score of 6-1, 6-4.
There is no need of any one taking his
defeat sorely after such a magnificent
contest, and Stetson at the close waa aa
full of admiration for young Chase aa
any one else on the court.
Alexander of Santa Barbara and F.
Carter alao had a fine contest, in which
the Santa Barbarian came out tbe victor.
Score: 6-7, 6-3, 6-3.
Thia left tbe Chaee brothere aa con
testants in one act, L. A. defaulting to
hiß brother, M. A. Chase, and Alexan
der and Lester as antagonists in the
fWher set of tbe semi-finale, which waa a
euperb contest from start to finish, Les
ter finally winning by the score of 2-0,
ln the finals M. E. Chase and W. E.
Leeter played for the tournament prize
and the privilege of playing Champion
R. P. Carter, the big-eonied and all
round gentleman and athlete who ia
watching the game intently.
Ohaae defeated Lester after a atnbborn
contest by the score of 6-7, 6-3, 6-2, 6-0,
and will play R. P. Carter, the present
champion, thie afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
Tomorrow will be the great day of the

the all-comera' doubles with tbe follow

and F. Carter being pitted againat
Pilcher and Freeman in tne preliminary
In the preliminary round R. P. and
F. Carter beat Pilcher and Freeman.
In the firat round Steteon and Hoy, who
showed up remarkably strong and look
like tournament winnere for this event,
were pitted against Acker and Young,
defeating them by tbe score of 6-2, 6-2.
Roach and McGilvray also defeated
X.Carter and Waring, 6-3, 6-2.
In the ladies' doubles Misses May
Carter and Shoemaker defeated Mra.
Teale and Mra. Hendricks by the score
of 6 1, 6-2
The ladiea played well. Mra. Teal
played remarkably gracefully but out of
form. The play of Miss Carter and Miss
Shoemaker was up to their old-timG
excellence. Another thing which told
against the Mines. Hendricks and Teale
was tbat they were used to playing on
faster courts, and thia court waa strange
to them in consequence.

The cauae which led to the parade

LIABLE TO CONVICT YOUNG.
Donald Grant's Startling Testi
The Defendant's Presence at tbe
Scene of the Crime.
Startling Developments In Tonne's Trial
Yesterday for the Murder of
Irene O'Brien—The Testi
The third trial oi "Billy" Young
upon the charge of murdering hie mis
tress, Irene O'Brien, waa productive of a
new witness yesterday.
It waa a witness who caused a sensa
tion to the defense. Instead of being a
witness who was known in the former
trials, he was sprung without any pre
monition, and his testimony waa ao com
pletely a aarpriae that the defendant
and hia counael held their breaths dur
ing the recital that came from hia lips.
The trial was begun in the morning
without any features of unuaual interest.
The testimony waa for aome time juat
like the testimony that haa drawn a
crowd of tbe peculiar people who have
filled tbe corridors and court room here
Joe Dockweiler was called and testi
fied about hia movements and what he
did not Bee on the night Billy Young ia
accused of having thrown a lamp at
Irene O'Brien in one of the desolate
"crlba" on Alameda streets, which
caused her clothes to catch on fire and
burn her to death.
Daisy Payne told about as much aa
the preceding witness, and tbe jurara
looked aa though tbey were somewhat
at a loss to know whether Lulu Dorman
saw the defendant run out of the burn
ing woman's room or not.
Donald Grant was called by the pros
ecution, and there was a curious, eur
priaed look on the face of the defendant
and his counsel. Thia aurpriae was
heightened when A, M. Grant, one of
the jurors, looked with something more
than curiosity at the young man who
marched in and took the witnesa stand.
The juror ia in the aaphaltum buai
neaa and waa drawn npon the special
venire of 20, after the regular panel was
exhauated. He waa picked up on tbe
atreet by William Cline, deputy sheriff,
who had no idea that his brother waa
a juror. The juror waa one of tbe term
trial jurors laat term in Judge Wade's
court, and Billy Cline knew both him
and bis brother. He had about and
hour to get tbe special panel and saw
Grant on tbe Btreet.
Tbe men have the same general cast
of features. They are Scotchmen, and
are men generally respected by those
who know them. The juror ia a con
tractor and the witness ia a mechanical
The story that Donald Grant told waa
listened to in absolute alienee. It will
be remembered that Lnlu Dorman, one
of tbe unfortunate crib women who haa
figured so prominently in thia caae, tea
titled that she heard quarreling in tbe
room of Irene O'Brien, which waa near
her room; that she beard Billy Young tell
Irene with an oath to lie down until he
put her out; that aome men knocked at
ber door and asked ber what wae tbe
matter and aaid aome trouble waa going
dta ia some of the rooms; tbat ahe caw
Billy Young run out of Irene'e room and
out the back way, exclaiming aa be
"Have me arrested, you tf —, and I'll
kill you, too."
It waa on Lulu Dorman's testimony
that the prosecution hae relied. The
defense brought witnesses to prove tbat
Young waa in Dohney's honse and waa
not at the murdered woman's crib at the
time she was burned. This directly
contradicted Lulu Dorman's testi
The defense also attacked the capa
bility of the woman to give clear testi
mony, and crucified her by showing that
ahe waa a cocaine fiend. Her appearance
waa enough to clinch tbat, and although
her evidence waa clear and ahe could
not be mixed up on cross-examination,
the defense relied on tbe jurors not be
lieving such a waif and wreckage upon
the shores of humanity as ahe showed
heraelf t» be.
When Donald Grant took the stand
the expectant look of the defense soon
changed to a worried appearance as that
downright young Scotchman told his
story, which waa in substance as fol
"I was at the San Fernando depot the
night the woman waa burned," he aaid.
"Istarted to walk to the city, and came
down Chinatown and Alameda street. I

some one waa being hurt and tbat we
had better see about it. I did not know
tbe men. We knocked at a door and
this girl, Lulu Dorman, came to it. I
thought the trouble was there, but ahe
told v's to move on, and we did. I got
aa far aa the plank walx that leads' out
up to the alley aud juat then a man
came running out of one of the rooms.
He got tangled up in a line of some sort
and I heard him aay something to tbe
girl, but could not tell what it waa. As
be passed me he aaid something to me
of which I could distinguish: 'You —,
yon have me arreated, too.' Then he
ran right along up to the walk and dis
The witness 1 was asked if he could
identify the defendant as the man. He
aaid he believed it wae, but would not
awear poaitively it waa becauae the man
he aaw had a moustache.
The defense tried their best to break
Donald Grant down on the cross-exam
ination, but it made no perceptible
change in his testimony.
He said that he had kept quiet about
the matter becanae be did not want to
be mixed up in such an affair. He in
advertently told Officer Bice a few days
ago that he was there the night of the
burning and when he saw he had put
his foot in it, told him what he bad

There were others of the witnesses of
former trials on tbe stand during the

OVER A LAND CLAIM.
Michael Swartz Charged With Threats
Michael Swartz, who, it is said, ia a
bad man from Acton, was brought in by
the United Statea marshal and lodged in
the county jail yeaterday.
Swartz ia charged with threatening the
lifoof E. E. Owen, and ia held under
heavy bonds, which he ia unable to give.
The trouble, it seems, arose over a gov
ernment claim in the vicinity of Acton,
which Owen took up some time ago and
proceeded to improve, in accordance
with the requirements of tbe law.
Owen expended considerable money
and time in improving hiß land, and it
never entered his bead tbat anyone
would attempt to contest his claim,
Howover, upon returning from a abort
abaence from hia land one morning he
states that he found Swartz comfortably
eneconced in hia cabin prepared to stay,
and when Owen demanded an explana
tion he waa coolly informed that he
(Swartz) bad taken possession of the
land, and that Owen had forfeited all
right to it on account of hia absence.
Moreover, he waa fully prepared to es
tablish hia right to tbe claim by the aid
of a big shotgun which he carried, and
Owen was ordered to make himeelf
acarce around the ranch or prepare to
make his will, aa he would blow the top
of hia head off if he ever showed up there
Owen, not appreciating this original
method of having hie property confis
cated, at once had a warrant sworn out
against Swartz, and hiß arreet followed,
Time for tho trial will be set on Mon
day next. In tbe meantime Uwen ia in
possession of tbe land.
The Police Waging; » War on Such
The police are making a determined
effort to put a atop to the selling of
Chinese lottery tickets and have been
making it so exceedingly warm for the
celestial dealers in thia species of mer
chandise lately, that tbe heathen are
becoming very ahy of selling ticketa to
Yeaterday five Chinamen were up all
charged with selling ticketa. They all
entered a plea of not guilty, and their
cases were act for later in tbe week, with
$50 cash bail up in each caae.
The extent to which this lottery busi
ness is carried on in this city ia surpris
ing, the amount handled by the
Chinese companies managing these af
fairs running yearly to enormous
amounta. The lotteries have three
drawings daily, and manage to collect a
goodly sum of cash each time.
The Cbineae themaelvea are liberal
patrona of the gamea, for anything in
the shape of gambling will catch a
Chinaman, but the amount tbat is con
tributed by white people largely in
creases the profits of the business, and
aa tbe lottery companiea allow large
commissions, tbe temptation to make a
few dollars ie usually stronger than the
regard for the strong arm of the law.
The liberal sized fines which are be
ing doled out to the dealers, however,
are having a very beneficial effect, and
it is becoming hard for strangers to
purchaae lottery ticketa.

The lecture rooms of the TJuion League

Major Jones was elected vice president.
In beginning his speech, the governor

After making a short review of the
present financial depression existing in
tbe country, the main causes which
have led up to this conditiou of affairs
were taken up.
There has been too much consultation
with bankers and money changers in
the present flurry, eaid the epeaker.
What tbe statoßtnen who are endeavor
ing to regulate the finances of the country
need to do, is not to consult the bank
ers, but to go down into the shops and
out among tbe farmers and find out what
the people want. Take a bath of public
opinions, as it were, and learn what the
The channels of trade of thie country
at thie time are clogged for want of a
circulating medium. - The warehouses
of Chicago are now crowded with grain,
which Europe is in need of and will pay
good prices for, yet it cannot be moved
for lack of money.
In New York, the financial center of
the country, the clearing house has been
obliged to issue $37,000,000 worth of
clearing bouse certificates to meet the
necessities of trade.
The trouble with the country plainly
enongh is that there ie not enough
money. We are receiving an annual
increase in our population of 1,200,000,
and no provision ia being made in our
circulating medium for thia increase.
Aa the boy growa put more cloth in hia
coat or there will be trouble.
According to official statistics there is
in the country money to tbe amount of
$24.44 per capita. It ia found, however,
that after deducting the amount locked
up in banks, and what has gone out of
circulation for various reasons, that the
actual amount in circulation will not
average over $8 or $9 per capita.
England, with only two-nftbs more
foreign traffic and only one-fifth aa much
domestic traffic aa tbe United Statea, haa
$23 per capita.
Germany haa $34 and France $55.
The latter is the most prosperous coun
try in Europe, and at thia time in a
more flourishing condition than the
The circulating medium of this
country should not be leaa than
10 per cent of the domestic traffic,
which would give our people money

The Democratic party was taken to

vine character, and were it not for legis
lation in its favor it would rank no
higher than silver. With the use of
gold under the present laws, the modern
Shylock ia able not only to take the
pound of flesh but the blood as well.
It is useless to bother with European
nations in a vain endeavor to reach a
universal agreement relative to silver;
too much time has already been spent
on tbia line. A national policy that
would give ua the balance of trade and
build up our merchant marine was held
to be the remedy ior many of the prea
Tbe lecture throughout was well re

Pure and Wholesome Quality
Commends to public approval the Cali
fornia iiouid laxative remedy, Syrup of
Figs. It is pleasant to the taste and by
acting gently on tho kidneys, liver and
bowels to cleanse the system effectually,
it promotes the health and comfort of
all who use it, and with millions it ia
the beßt and only remedy.
While exhibiting a "new-fangled"
revolver to a friend last evening, Mr.
Nolan of the real estate firm ol Nolan &
Smith, accidentally discharged it in his
office on Second street, under the Hol
lenbeek. An excited crowd rushed to
the door expecting to find the gory
corpse of somebody who had bandied
another gun that "wasn't loaded." No
damage w,as done.

What Borne ex-Angel Ball Flayers
The Chicago Herald ot recent date
contains the following, part of which
will be of intereet to local baseball
"President Hart has corralled a new
herd of colts, and soon there will be a
batch of new faces on the team. None
of the old ones will be released, but a
few may be laid off without pay. The
team has only won four games since
July 24th, and has shown no symptoms
cf improvement. Game after "game hae
been lost by execrable fielding and poor
work in the box. It may be impossible
to strengthen the box, as pitching tal
ent ie rare, but it will be possible to
brace up tbe weak infield and the rather
loose jointed outfield. President Hart
announced yesterday that he had re
ceived the signed contracts of Glenal
vin, O'Brien, Hughey and Camp
and is negotiating with several
others. He is determined that Chi
cago shall be represented by a
team capable of winning a few
games by way of variety, and if neces
sary will engage an entire nine. In the
present etate of affairs no men will be
turned loose. If only one of the new
men develops into a good player he will
be satisfied, Glenalvin has been play
ing second base for the Oaklands, of the
California league. He is an ex-Colt and
ie regarded ac just the man for second.
He left California yesterday and is due
next week. His arrival may putLange's
nose out of joint, although that bard
working player may be sent into tbe
outfield. J. J. O'Brien is an infielder
who haa been doing good work for the
Augustas, of tbe Southern league. He
was with Brooklyn two years ago.
Hughey is a pitcher from the Southern
league. He made a good record while
a member of the Kansas City and Mil
waukee aeeociation teams. Camp is a
third baseman from the Atlantas. He
is a bard hitter and a crack fielder. He
was given a trial by St. Louis last year.
The other players are good men, and if
eecnred will help to patch up some of
the bad holes existing in tbe makeup of
