Mrs. A. J. Everett of Marietta, River
side county, whose husband created a
scandal some time ago by eloping with
Mrs. Nellie Wagatnff of the earne town,
has instituted suit in the superior court
of that county agalnßt her husband,
George H. Everett, for a divorce.
The suit is the sequel to a etory of
domestic trouble which has already been
more or less fully ventilated in the pa
pers, says the Riverside Enterprise.
Everett, it will be remembered, is tbe
man who some weeks ago eloped with
Mrs. Nellie W age t elf of Murietta. The
guilty couple were surprised at Pomona,
and Everett wao held for trial on a
charge of adultory. He was sent to tho
Los Angeles county jail, but aftor a brief
incarceration was set free through the
medium of a writ of habeas corpus.
In the meanwhile Mrs. VVagstafT had
fled and her husband was searching for
her; end in the meanwhile, too, Mrs.
Everett had begun an action against her
husband for separate maintenance. Mr.
Wagßtaff, aftor a long bant, found bis
erring wife in Los Angeles, and for a
time at leaat there was some sort of a
reconciliation. Mrs. Everett also be
came* ft A iCurtniu sen*'* reconciled to
her hnibW*. 'toe bt.td'r dffded to her
property tnd iho agreed to
drop tbe suit upon bis paying the coats
and exp■.•r.oe.s of ■ the --proceedings. He
failed, however, to perform all the con
ditions of tbe agreemfnat and Mrs. Ev
erett's action for. eeparate maintenance
ia still pending.
" Mrs. Everett's 'present Bnit for divorce
ib brought, it is understood, for the
purpose cbietly oi securing the eu itody
of their children. In her complaint
Mrs. Everett charges her husband with
committing adultery with Mra. Wagatatf
on the ICth of last June in Riverside
county. She also alleges the eaine of
fense with the same person at other
times and in various counties.
She makes no claim (or ali> ay, be
ing content with the property which her
husband conveyed to her after she be
gan her suit (or separate maintenance.
The couple have been married some 16
yoars and have four children.

The new bond required of County
Trcamrer T. J. Fleming by the board of
eopervisors wae filed yesterday, having
received the signatures of tbe six su
perior judges of this county.
It was taken before the board by Mr.
Waldo M. York, representing tbe treas
urer, and at bis request tbe board passed
the following resolution:
Reeolved, By the board of supervisori
of Los Angelea county, that tbe bond
now tendered by Tbos. J. Fleming as
connty treasurer, approved by the
judges of the superior court on October
20, 1893, in lien of the bond given by
bim heretofore be filed, and that the
same be taken and considered aa the
said treasurer's bond, exclusive of aaid
first bond from this date.
TUB NEW BOND.
Tbe sureties upon tbe new bond are
ac follows: Hervey Lindley, $20,000;
George W. Hughes, $15 000; Sam Lewis,
$20,000; W.J. Washburn, $10,000; R.

A RADICAL CHANGE.
One remarkable circumstance about
the new bond ia tbe story it tells.
The clearing house banks no longer
have any part and parcel in it.
It ehowe that the banks of the city,
that ia. the clearing house banks, will
no longer accept tbe apecial deposit of
county funde upon the conditions which
the law imposes to keep the money
strictly aa a special deposit and not use
it in their busbies?.
In the new bond the treasurer practic
ally cuta loose from tbe old order of
tbinga, ac there are none of tbe four
banks interested in tbe former bond
who aie represented upon the new one.
There are some sureties on the new
bond interested in the California bank,
and what effect that will have upon
where the treasurer will do business ia
a matter.of conjectnre. But a glance at
the names shows tbat it is practically
crmpoaed of entirely different names
from the first bond.
When it was exclusively stated by the
Herald several days ago that the coun
ty treasurer would give a new bond, it
waa aleo atated that some of the names
on the bond were coneidered insuffi
Yesterday, in attempting to let these
gentleman down easy, Treasurer Flem
ing waa reported in an evening paper aa
douymg the accuracy of the statement
mode by tbe Herald.
The board of supervisors can easily
show Mr. Fleming a document which
they have in tbeir possession, a report
by the district attorney, in which the
names of eight of his former sureties are
given, and upon which the supervisors
' BUggested to Mr. Fleming tbat a new
j bond would be tbe proper thing.
THE SURETIES NOT EXAMINED.
The approval of the new bond by tbe
judges of the superior court was done in
a very quiet mauner. No information
I was given about it to newspaper re-
I porters, although they signed it October
I 20th of last week.
Tbe Herald did ascertain that some
>of the signatures had been obtained and
it was so stated the next morning.
It was ascertained yesterday that tbe
new sureties were not personally ex
amined by any o( the judges who ap
proved the new bond, any more than
j they were upon the former bond, al
| though tbe law says tbat such sureties
) "shall" be personally examined on oath
iby the judges before tbey approve tbe
Judge Shaw was seen in his chambers
and said that he had not examined any
of the new sureties. He said that while
the law was as stated, still not to exam
ine the sureties would not invalidate
the bond. It had been the custom fol
lowed in tbe case of all official bonds
siuje the present administration came
in, although County Clerk Ward was
instructed by the judges sums time ago
to notify all porsons hereafter to bring
their sureties with them when tbey had
to give an official bond.
'litK COUNTY MONEY.
County Treasurer Fleming was found
late in the afternoon in big office, much
relieved by the formal filing of his new
bond, and said tbat the new bond
marked a radical change in tbe handling
of the county money. He could not
tell yet just what the result would be.
He did not contemplate a removal of
the county funds now in the banks im
mediately, but supposed it would finally
result iv all the county cash being
locked in the treasury vault.
Mr. Fleming seemed very happy that
he should have experienced so little
difficulty in giving.euch a large bond bo
speedily and without tbe assistance of
the clearing house banks.
A gentleman well posted on county
matters said iv the afternoon that the
policy which ie indicated by the new
bond is that the county money will be
withdrawn from the banks, which de
cline any longer to handle it unless tbey
can use it. This will mean tbe with
drawal from circulation of about $250,
-000 all the time, and at some seasons of
the year a much larger sum. Still, be
said, the banks have been so afraid to
use the money for several mouths that
it has been practically withdrawn from
circulation, and it will not come sud
denly when it is formally withdrawn by
tbe treasurer and locked up in the court

A SUBTLE POINT.
A Justice of the Peace Who Is Not, and
Yet Is, Justice.
District Attorney Dillon has filed an
opinion before tbe board of supervisors
in a curiona case which haa occurred in
Compton. W. A. Gains was elected
justice of the peace there in 1890, quali
fied, and filled the office. In November,
1892, J. A. Nichols waß electrd as hia
successor. He failed to qualify, and
afterwards, but prior to the first Mon
day in January, 1803, Mr. Gainß was
appointed aa hia own successor. Tbe
district attorney hold* that thin appoint
ment la void on tha ground that there
waa no vacancy, Mr. Gains's time not
yet having expired. The result ia that
Mr. Gains ia atill the justice and yet ia
not tbe juetice. lie may continue to
act aa justice until hia successor ia ap
pointed and qualified.

The story of it aa gleaned by a

eyes, a rough, full beard, and is email of
stature. On the night mentioned,
"Willie," with another hobo, took Fred
Sanford, one of the boys who care for
the horses at the race a cor
ner of tho grand stand and proceeding
to drug him, attempted to commit a
crime against nature on hie person.
The hoboß were seen in their devilish
work by one of the boys who live at the
park. lie immediately notified Mr.
Sanford, who, coming no, sent "Willie"
sprawling across the floor by the force
of his doubled fist. Tbe other fiend
escaped. Mr. Sanford, ttking care of
his son, called to tbe crowd which had
collected to catch "Willie."
They secured the trend, and putting a
rope around his neck proceeded to string
him up by the neck to a post of the gate
which leads in upon the race course.
There he hung until his face was black,
when he waa let down, nearer dead than
alive. He waa placed on a street car,
bleeding and bruised, and sent off.

Tbe California midwinter baseball
season opened up jesterday afternoon at
Athletic park, and judging from the
number in attendance and tbe enthu
siasm manifested the revival of the na
tional game in Los Angeles will be a
brilliant success. There was a little
hitch in the proceedings at the very
start, owing to an alleged attempt to
collect old debts hy new methods, but
the effort did not amount to a perma
nent obstruction, and the game was
called only a few moments late.
The rains of the laat few days had
brightened up the grounds until they
were, aa tbe horse reporter would say,
lightning fast. The diamond waa as
smooth as a billiard table, and the out
field was packed solid. Altogether it
was a most auspicious opening.
While all tbe regular Loa Angelea
players have not arrived yet, there were
enough of them, with a couple of anb
etitutes, to put up a strong game; and
victory would have perched upon the
local banner had not the unexpected
happened, as usual.
The Angela scored in the first inning,
with two hands out. Lange, the same
elongated Willie that played with the
Ciklands laat season, hit to right field
for two basea, and Parrott followed bim

Irwin'a error of Speer's drive to short
completed the catastrophe.
In the eighth inning the Angels again
took a short lead. Parrott hit for three
bases and stayed there while two men
were being put out, and finally scored
on Griffith's hit to center. It looked
very much ac if Hinea had caught the
latter fairly, but the umpire decided

Stkm Si the Case* Which Were uu
The trial of William and Martin
Devine and Clide Sheets, charged with
robbing a Chinaman near Vernon last
August, waa rosumed in Judge Smith's
court yesterday morning. The prosecu
tion continued to put in testimony der
ing the day, and had about concluded
at the time of adjournment. Qrite a
number of Vernon people are in attend
ance upon the trial. The defense will
endeavor to prove that tho defendants
were not the persons whocomuiitted the
robbery. During the examination of
Officer Goodman of the police detective
force some conflicting statements by
Sheets were brought ont, which looked
Buspicious. At first he told the officer
he was sick at home the night of tne
robbery, but afterward contradicted
this and said he was away. He also
told the officer the names of some per
sons whom he claimed were the guilty
persons. It is doubtful whether the
case will be concluded today.

not only stops a cold but it is re
markably successful where the
cough has become deep seated.
