NORWALK CHINESE MUST GO.
Exciting Times at that Little
• Town Last Night.
George Hebe Ho Had to Discharge
His Chinamen or See Them Hung-.
Supervisor Hay Prevented Bloodshed
By Ilia Timely Arrival—An Armed
Crowd Dlip-rae Only After
Attaining Their Object.
Yesterday afternoon a telephone
message was received at the.Bheiill's of
fice from Norwalk stating that the white
laborers of tbe district intended to
make a midnight descent upon the Chi
nese employed at George lleberle's
vineyard, which ia located about a mile
and a half south of Norwalk.
It was further stated* that the Anti
Chinese league had sent an ultimatum
to Heberle, warning him that unless lie
immediately discharged his Chinese
help, that they would be hung by the
mob before morning.
Shortly after the receipt ol the tele
phone communication, Supervisor Hay
left for lleberle's vineyard, and on ar
riving there and investigating the mat
ter, sent a message to Sheriff Cline, in
which he said bloodshed was imminent,
and asked that as strong a force of offi
cers might be sent to Norwalk in ac
short a time as possible in order to as
sist the four deputy sheriffs already on
the scene. *
Under Sheriff John Brooker waßted
no time, but in'company with four dep
uty sheriffs, all the available force, pro
cured a team and drove to the ranch,
leaving Loa Angeles at 7 o'clock last
HKBERLE FORCED TO GIVE IM.
Additional news oi tbe affair was sent
tbe Herald by telephone at 11 o'clock
last night* as follows:
Before the arrival of the officers, riders
bad been sent out over the country, no
tifying all anti-Chinese crusadew of the
necessity of their presence at the attack
during the night. Considerable feeling
had been aroused among the more
responsible people, while others were
agitated and were at fever heat.
Unless their wishes were complied
wilh they threatened to kill the Chinese
before tbe dawn of day, aud from their
determined appearance it looked as
though trouble of a most serious nature
The crowd gathered about 9:30 o'clock,
and numbered between 40 and 60 men.
A number of tbem carried shotguns or
rifles, while others resorted to clubs and
revolvers to use in case they should be
met in large numbers by the Celestials.
The crowd of Chinese destroyers were
led by Elmer Dolley, a young Artesia
rancher. He was the committee of one
who notified Mr. Heberle during tbe day
that he must discharge the Chinese or
see tbem lynched.
Tbe situation became alarming. Heb
erle had not yet complied with the
warning, and the mob grew more deter
mined. Several of tbe leaguers advo
cated an immediate annihilation of tho
entire grape-picking crew, without giv
ing Heberle further time in which to
It became evident that Heberle, who
ie a courageous and determined man,'
was strongly opposed to the discharging
of the coolies', and it was several bouts
before be definitely decided as to what
be would do.
Being pressed by the mob for the hut'
time, he was prevailed upon to dis
cbarge the Chinese. He is a very
brave man, but was Dowerless to pro
tect the Chinese against such a gather
ing. He complied with the wishes of
the men very reluctantly.
It is said that but for the intervention
of Supervisor Hay, Atwood Stork and a
few other leading citizens there would
certainly hatje been bloodsbed. These
gentlemen induced Heberle to discbarge
the Chinese and also pacified the mob,
after which the crowd dispersed without
It was a very chilly ride back to this
city for the depuf? sheriffs.
JUDGE SMITH ALL RIGHT.
Be Hays He Will Uo lv Lob Angeles in
Mr. F. R. Willis, Ute attorney, re
turned Monday from a trip to Chicago
and eastern' points. While in Chicago
he saw Judge B. N. Smith, who was
severely injured by an electric car some
Mr. Willis left for home last Wednes
day, and saw Judge Smith about one
hour before his departure. He states
that Judge Smith's injuries are not bo
bad as was first reported. None of hie
limbs were broken, nor has he sustained
any internal injuries. He had five
ribs broken and received an abrasion
upon tbe skull and a cut on tbe hip.
Judge Smith was getting along nicely
and desired to be remembered to all of
the boys, and instructed Mr. Willis to
tell the Los Angeles people tbat be
would be borne within three weeks.
Mr. Willis also saw the physician at the
hospital where Judge Smith is staying,
and he, too, said that the judge would
be out in about three weeks.
Mr. Willis gave it as bis opinion that
the present stringency in financial af
fairs is more the result of the uncer
tainty over the probable tariff legisla
tion by tne present congress tban the
silver question. He talked with a num
ber of manufacturers and they generally
blamed the present condition upon the
uncertainty of tbe tariff. Affairs were, :
he said, getting easier in tbe east. He
states also that the indications point to
a large influx into Southern California

RESULT OF THE SAN ANTONIO
CANYON WATER WAR.
Judge Van Dyke Decides That the Tun
nel la Not Doing aay Damage.
If It Does He Will
j Judge Van Dyke yesterday rendered
! a decision in the case of the San Anto
nio Water company and Pomona Land
and Water company vs. the Sierra
Water and Power company et al., in ac
cordance with an opinion filed, denying
the request for an injunction.
Largo interests have been at Btake in
tho present litigation, and the decision
has been anxiously awaited by tbe
parties interested and the people of Po
mona, Ontario and vicinity.
For more tban 10 years prior to the
commencement of the action, says the
court, the plaintiff corporation have
diverted aud distributed for use among
their respective stockholders all the
water flowing down the San Antonio
canon, except 20 inches thesSof, appro
priated by aud belonging to a man
At the dam in the ceflnn, near its
mouth, the water belonging to the
companies is equally divided. The San
Antonio company takes one-half on the
eastern Bide of the stream, and con
ducts It southeasterly through pipes
and aqueducts to Ontario colony and
Ontario, distributing it. The Pomona
Land and Water company takes the
other half to Pomona and distributes it.
-The defendant company has begun the
excavation of a tunnel up tbe canon five
or Gix miles fiom its mouth to develop
water, tafejadjng to convey it down the
cafion and apoirfond.
Ths-plaifitiiTs allege that the tunnel is
co-nsttuetelrso near the channel of the
creek aa tt) etraw aome of its water from

Rffd say that at tfcj JjjtopoEed depth and
in the tinnrl is being con
structed it'"will noE diminish or divert
any of the w/ator in the stream.
It was agreed that the court ebould
v'sit the premises, and he did so. From
j the showing made in court and from the
i personal inspection made, Judge Van
j Dyke thinks that no diminution of the
waters flowing in the creek has so far
occurred. He also considers that the
conetrnction of tbe tunnel will not result
. in a diminution of any waters to which
tbe plaintiffs are entitled.
He says tbat in view of the large
number of people and vast interests de
pendent on the distribution of water by
the plaintiffs, it is not strango that ap
prehension of interference with the
water right should be aroused. Still, in
order to justify ths court in restraining
parties from seeking to develop water.it
ehonld appear reasonably certain that
an interference or divorsion haa taken
place or is likely to occur.
In the further extension of the tun
nel if at any time it should be developed
that danger to the flow of the stream is
imminent, the court would net hesitate
to restrain such diversion or fnterfer
ference. But for the present the order
to show cause is discharged and a pre
liminary injunction is denied.

The police commission at its meeting
yesterday continued its crusade against
tbe "crib" element, and ordered the
chief of police to immediately enforce
the law against the houses of ill-fame on
Ixe Angeles street between First and
Contrary to ite former custom, the
commission failed to revoke tbe license
of one saloon reported upon very unfa
vorably by the chief, tbe place being
the Backet saloon at 7i'.i North Alameda
Btreet, owned by Jean Rappet. This
case has been twice continued, and now
tbe saloon is permitted to run.
A report of the chief of police, pre
sented by Officer Marsh, regarding tbe
immoral houses at the places mentioned,
was read. The matter was originally
brought up by a petition from the busi
ness men on Los Angelee street, who
protested bitterly against the disreputa
The report showed there are five
"cribs" in tbe low building, numbered
125, 127, 129, 131 and 133 North Los
Angeles street, each room being occupied
by immoral women. The property be
longs to Mrs. W. Rumpp, who secures a
rental of $15 a month Irom the fallen
women. The report stated that, consid
ering the class of people, these places
were orderly, and no robberies bad been
reported nb having taken place in them.
The soliciting of the women is not aone
in a more open manner tban by tbeir

The mayor asked the clerk to read the
law, the section covering the question
being 316 of tbe penal code, which is aa
"Every person who keeps any disor
derly bouse or any house for the pur
pose of assignation or prostitution, or
any hon°e of public resort by whicb the
peace, comfort or decency of the imme
diate neighborhood is habitually dis
turbed, or who keeps any inn in a dis
orderly manner, and every person who
lets any apartment or tenement, know
ing tbat it is to be used for the purpose
of assignation or prostitution is guilty
of a misdemeanor."
After some discussion on the matter,
Mr. Boebyehell moved that the chief of
police be instructed to take proper steps
to abate the nuisance, and if the offend
ing persons refuse to comply with the
requirements of the law, the chief was
instructed to bring criminal proceed
ings. The motion was adopted.

Mr. Bradish moved that the license of
the saloon be revoked, but the motion
was lost, the mayor, Messrs.Weldonaud
Bosbyshell voting no, and Messrs.
Bradiari and Tin ts voting yes.
A compromise was effected by the
motion of Mr, Bosbyshell, who moved
that the chief of police notify Mr. Rap
pet to remove all belts and enunciators
out of the saloon, and to cell liquor only
in the saloon. This motion was carried.
Rappet has been selling liquor in 32
of the "cribs" by means of orders by
enunciators, and this business will now
be stopped. Then the question arises,
will the women again flock to the place
as of yore?
The chief reported on the petition of
George W. Scherer for transfer of license
of saloon at the northwest corner of Sev
enth etreet and Maple avenue from
Charles Hildebrandt, which wae granted.
On report of the chief transfers of

on the petition of Ramon Garcia for
transfer of permit for liquor license of

Wiethen St Nicholson, and on motion of
Mr. Boabyshell the permit was granted.

W. H. Thomas, partner in the law
firm o! Brousseau & Thomas, committed
suicide early yesterday morning by tak
ing eleven grains of morphine.
Dr. Davisson was eummoned to Gar
vanza, where Mr. Thomas resided, at 1
o'clock yesterday morning. He was
met by Mra. Thomas, who told him tbat
ber husband was acting very strangely,
and she waß afraid he was dying.
Dr. Davisson examined his patient
and found symptoms of morphine poi
son. Everything waa done by tho phy
sician to save Mr. Thomas's life, but he
never rallied and died shortly aftei 6
Some two yeara ago Mr. Thomas had
a severe attack of pneumonia, which
entirely destroyed hie health and consti
tution, leaving his lungs in a dangerous
condition. Since then the deceased
had suffered considerably, and a few
days ago was operated upon by Dr.
Davisson, who removed a pernicious
growth from iiis lungs.
Yesterday Dr. Davisson happened to
be in the attorney's ollie, when the
former remarked that he did not think
he would ever recover hie health. He
appeared to be in a very despondent
frame of mind, and Dr. Davisson endeav
ored to cheer him up, but without suc
cess. Before the doctor left Mr. Thomas
asked him if be could give him some
morphine to allay the pain be was suf
fering from, but Dr. Davisson not con
sidering the drug a proper thing for his
patient to take, refused.
Attorney Thomas came to this city
four years ago from Lockport, Ind., and
was made a partner in the law firm of
Broußßean, Hatch cc Thomas.
Soon afterwards Judge Hatch left the
firm, leaving Judge Broseeau and
Thomas tbe sole partners.
Daring tbe Markbam campaign the
deceased did good work for the Repub
lican ticket, and waa a delegate to the
county and Btate conventions in 1890.
He was a prominent member of the
order of Odd Fellows, and of the
Knights of Pythias.
The deceased was 42 years of age and

Yesterday morning in department two
of tho superior court a meeting of mem
bers of the bar was held to take appro

A DAUGHTER'S SAD POSITION.
The Liw Cannot Recognize Ber aa a
Judge W. H. Clark, in department two
of tbe superior court, yesterday filed an
opinion in quite a novel case, in which
an alleged illegitimate child of R. Ball,
deceased, endeavored to secure a part of
A decree of distribution of the estate
to Sarah J. Ball and Matilda C. Ball,
surviving wife and mother of the de
ceased,, was entered by Judge Clark De
cember 21, 1892.
Since tbat time the child in question,
Viola Ball, made a motion to set aside
the decree, to be allowed to prove her
heirship and right to share in the estate.
She contends that she was adopted by
tbe deceased under the provision of the
civil code which provides that the father
of an illegitimate child, by publicly
acknowledging it as his own and other
wise treating it as a legitimate child,
adopts it, and it is deemed for all pur
poses legitimate from the time of its
Tho court sayß there was a sufficient
showing of excusable neglect of the peti
tioner to appear at the proper time, she
residing in another state and not having
knowledge of Mr. Ball's death; still, ad
mitting all the facts eet forth in the
affidavit to be true, they fail to show
conduct on-the part of the deceased as
would clothe the petitioner with the
rights Bhe seeks.
It was made to appear that Mr. Ball
was the father of Viola Ball, but no one
lof the elements necessary to constitute
|an adoption, except the affidavit of her
! mother, Ktnma Mahafley, who deposed
; that the deceased publicly acknowl
| edged the child as his own and treated
' ber as a legitimate child.
This, however, related to a time be
i fore the birth of the girl. It waa in Penn
i sylvanai, in 1874. Thedecsased and Km
jma Mahaffey became unduly intimate.
|He promised her parents to marry her,
j but left the state before the birth of
the petitioner and came to California.
| The question before the court was
; whether any conduct or acknowledg
i ment of the father of an unborn,
I illegitimate child could be su
! ficient to prove an adoption or
or admissible for any purpose except
upon the issue of paternity. After dis
cussing the law at some length, it is
decided that It could not, and the
motion to set aside the decree is denied.
STICKS BY THE DECREE.

Commissioner Francis Thomas.
Yesterday the petition presented by
Francis Thomas, commissioner to cell
the cable road system, to have special
instructions as to the payment of re
ceiver's certificates was beard bafore
Judge Van Dyke. Arguments were
made on both sides and the court deter
mined the matter orally. Tbe order di
rected to be entered was as follows:
The application of the commissioner
for instructions having been continued
to this day, parties being present by
council and having been argued and
submitted, tbe court orders that it
deems it unnecessary to make any modi
fication of the decree, holding that a fair
and reasonable construction of the de
\ cree means, appeals pending at the time
The application for supersedeas on
the appeal from portions ol tbe decree is
denied, for the reason that if the appeal
