MISS QUACK I.UNT.
Mica Grace l.uot teatilied that ehe had
been an inmate of the county hospital
in September. Was there for treatment
for diphtheria. "I was there four days.
Mrs. Ilne.au ln!d me to leave, and that
any time I waa ready to go tbe express
Wagon was ready for me. I went away
and subsequently went to Boyle Heights,
to friends: but they wouldu't let me
stay. I then returned to Mrs. Cortel
ypn's. I returned to the hospital tbe
next day. Saw Mrs. Hagan and asked
permission to remain a couple of days,
but she wouldn't let me remain. The
first day I was there Dr. Hagan prodded
me and asked me it 1 had a young man,
and I said 'no,' and be laughed. He
asked me that question the second time,
and I laughed and he laughed.
"When I was in tbe tank bouse Mrs.
Hagan called on me, and so did tbe doc
tor. A man they called Jack brought
me food, and he (Jack) asked me if I
wanted to go to the park with him for a
nice time. When I left there my throat
hurt me some when I coughed. One of
tbe doctors gave me a bottle of medi
cine to take when I went away. I left
there on Monday, and returned to Mrs.
Cortelyon's. One of ber children was
taken sick ; a little while after this other
children ; there were six took sick and
three of them died with diphtheria.
Mrs. Cortelyon was also taken sick with
tbe same disease alterwarda."
Tbe witness said there was a case of
diphtheria abont two blocks from tbe
Cortelyou family before ehe was taken
sick, but she had not been nearer tbe
casa than to pass the bouse once.
On redirect tbe witness stated that
when ehe first went to the hospital she
was partially undressed and taken to
tbe bath room. The clothes she bad
taken off previous to going into the bath
were returned to her within a half hour
thereafter with the information that
they bad been fumigated.
George Hamilton was next; residence
at East Alhambra. He testified: "I
was in the British navy five years;
went to tbe hospital last month; was
taken from my room on Spring street;
waa choking. Dr. Parsons examined
me and took me to the hospital; was
there about a week; saw very little of
Dr. Hsgan; didn't see b.m in my
ward more than four or five times;
received treatment entirely from Dr.
Parsons. Dr. Pareons was exception
ally kind to me, although a little off at
times. Met Dr. Hagan once. Was in
ward five, too; did not observe any mis
treatment on the part of the doctors to
ward any of the patients. The wards
were well kept and clean. The only
thing I did not think right was tbe lack
of bathing facilities. They had hot
water but three times a week. I cannot
say that there was an insufficiency of
medicine. Dr. Hagan would strut about
like a newly full fledged lieutenant
aboard ship, and was correspondingly
bard to approach. The patients used to
chaff him and asked bim several times
if when be went to heaven be wouldn't
come back and tell them how it was.

.~'r. VP. 11. Dukeman, uworn—Was the
<nn»ily physician of Mr. Oortelyou. Xha
y,!''' famed Grace Lunt bad been exam
• jieil l>v hurt, and be found hor to be in
the earliest stages of diphtheria. Under
stood Mr. Cortelyon made subsequent
arrangements for her to be taken to the
county hospital. About 10 days later
be was called In to attend Mr. Cortel
yon's family, three of the children and
their mother being taken with the die
aase. The length of time between an
exposure to tbe disease and coming
down with it was varied. It might be
14 hours, and it migtit bo 14 days. In
regard to the child which was away, but
came back shortly before she was taken
with the disease, he had investigated
to see if the child bad been exposed to
tbe disease, but" ho could not find where
it had been.
Ou cross examination the witness
said it might be possible that the dis
ease had been communicated by the
Lunt girl to tbe children betore Mibs
Lunt was taken to the hospital. Wit
ness was of the opinion that diphteria
was c constitutional disease as well as a
local one; that the germs might be con
tained in the bodily secretions.
On re-direct examination by Mr. Dil
lon, witness said recovery from diptheria
in five days was almost impossible.
Mr. Dillon—"Could a girl leaving
there with a sore throat and a bottle of
gargle, be said to have recovered from

. and witness said that he thought not.
j In bis practice be had not known a case
I where the patient had communicated
I the disease after he had, co far as tbe
throat was concerned, recovered from
the disease. In tbe case of the Cortelyon
children, he thought the disease might
have been communicated before or even
! aUer tbe Lunt girl bad left tbe hospital.
CHARLES H. BROWN.
Cbarlos H. Brown, being sworn, said
he bad visited the hospital nearly e\ery
Sunday for a longtime. Iv noticing the
conditions as to cleanliness, witness said
tbe hospital had been kept of late very
much cleaner than formerly. The
kitchen is not as clean as it should be;
had noticed when he went to the kitch
en dishes were always washed before
being given him. Did not think Dr.
Parsonß baa used proper conduct toward
tbe patients, at least some cases. Once,
when in tbe surgical ward, a man who
was said to have been run over, was
brought in; tbe man was crying with
pain and taking on considerably, when
j Dr. Parsons said, "What in h—l are
I you crying about?"
Witness bad told Parsonß on one occa
sion not to insult his (Brown's) wife, as
he bad done, or he would thrash him.
' On cross-examination witness said his
wife bad told him she went -to Dr. Par
sons and spoke to him about the attend
ance a certain oatient bad been receiv
ing. Dr. Parsons told ber that she had
no business to make such complaints,
and said: "You ladies bavealready lied
enough about this institution."
Witnesß and his wife were not con
nected with tbe organization known as
tbe King's Daughters; and did not visit
the hospital as representatives of any
organization, but as private citizens, to
do snch good in a small way as they
could. Witness believed the trouble
■ was that there were not enough nurses
there, and that Dr. Hagan was too often
called away by bis private practice, so
that he could not attend in person.
Witness had told Dr. Hagan he ought to
have better medical assistance at the
place. Witness thought Dr. Hagan was
trying to run tbe place cheaper than Dr.
Brainard had done.
MISS C. RICKEY.
Miss C. Rickey, sworn—Had been a
: nurse at the hospital for some time un
der Dr. Hagan. She bad charge of four
wards and Dr. Hagan did not call often
at those wards. Her impression was
from what she saw of him that he was
gruff and abrupt in bis manner. Wit
ness knew of one case in which a child
whose bead was infested with vermin,
had been put to bed without being
bathed, as there was no regular supply
of hot water at the hospital.
On. cross-examination, witness said
she did not know of her own knowledge
that patients had been discharged be -
fore they bad recovered.
Bupervißor—"Do you know what that
little girl who had vermin on her head
was sent to the hospital for?"
Miss Rickey—"l cannot say. The
vermin on her was almost a disease in
O. It. GRUBB.
O. E. Grubb, sworn—Eeßide in Lob
Angeles and have kept a lodging house
(called the Terre Haute house) on East
First street. When W.K.Wilson was
run over by a header wagon in October
I went with him. He had a shoulder
dislocated and two ribs broken. The
physician in attendance bandied him
quite roughly and took his arm out of a
sling, which gave bim great pain. Dr.
Hagadorr, was the physician attending
him and Wilson complained of the rough
Mr. York—"Did you see the accident
in which his ribs were broken V"
Witness —"No, sir; I knew nothing of
tbe case except what witness told me."
John Bargland, sworn —"Was an in
mate of the county hospital, and had
been there in November last. About
the 18th that man remained there two
days, and wag told by Dr. Parsonß to go,
so he came to this city and went to a
lodging bouse. Tbe patrol wagon came
for bim and took him to the police sta
tion and thence to the county hospital,
where he was kept five or six dayß with
out medicine. Dr. Parsons came in, and
when witness asked him why de did not
come before, he said he forgot all about
Mr. York—"Were you not told by tbe
physicians that medicine would do you
no good, that you were ailing with heart
Mr. York—"Did they not tell yon how
to conduct yourself at tbe hospital—not
to do anything that would excite you' "
Mr. York—"Did you not go there on
a permit from the supervisors allowing
you to stay there two days? And did
not tbe physicians dismiss you because
your permit bad expired?"
Mr. Forrester—"How did you get
"By steamer, sir. I came to San Pedro
from San Francisco."
Mr. Forrester--"And you came here
all the way from San Francisco on pur
pose to go into the hospital?"
"And did not the supervisors tell you
that they would let you go to the hos
pital if yon would go back to San Fran
cisco when their permit expired?"
A LUPKR AT LARGE.
Eugene Charles, being sworn, said:

tendent. I eat at tha table known at the

people have eaten their meals.
Mr. Dillon —"How often do yoa get
meat at that table?"
"Sometimes twice a day and some
times three times a day."
Witne,: said that when be first went
there he got medicine, tome strychine
pills. "l'hey gave me uo medicine
lately because they said I could not
get well," The nurse in the ward where
he lived was named Jouob. He ÜBed
bad language to patients and is surly
and ill-tempered. He now has charge
of ward No. 5. There is a leper at the
hospital. He sleeps up at tbe water
tank but is allowed fnil range of the
grounds. I was at the county poor farm
but Dr. Burdick sent me to the hospital
for medical treatment.
Mr. York—"How many times have
you seen that nurse drunk that you tell
"Four or rive times."
In reference to the leper witness said
Dr. Brainard had allowed the man to
sleep in one of the wards but Dr. Hagan
had separated him from the other

TO VISIT TUB HOSPITAL.
Mr. Dillon asked for permission to
take three depositions, Mrs. Kelly, Mrs.
Brown and J. Walling, all of whom are
too sick to attend this trial in person.
Mr. York said he bad no objection to
tbe depositioas. but he wanted all the
evidence ol the prosecution to be gotten
in before the defense opened tbeir testi
Mr. Dillon now moved the board go
over to tbe hospital to see those pa
tients while talking to them in relation
to tbe occurrences. The proposition
waß objected to by Mr. York, who lives
in Paßadena and was afraid of missing
The prosecuting attorney said he bad
been obliged to put in his testimony and
would take bis own way of getting it in.
So be moved the board go to the county
hospital at once.
The proposition was objected to by
Mr. York, but Dr. Hagan wanted the
matter disposed of at once, co they ad
journed till this morning at 10 o'clock.
THEY WANT MOKE LAND.
THE PARK COMMISSIONERS CLAM
OR FOR MORE LAND.
Elyalan Park to Be Enlarged and
Utherwlae Beautified — The
Uaaal Bemtodi Ap
pro Ted. •
The park commissioners held a meet
ing yeßterday. Present: Messrs. Hub
bell, Cross, Pinney and hlesmer; Judge
Frank Wiggins addressed a letter to
tbe board on behalf of the chamber of
commerce, asking for suitable planta to
decorate tbe interior of tbe Southern
California building at tbe midwinter
fair. Tbe request was granted and tbe
matter placed in the hands of Superin
tendent Le Grand.
The following resolution waa adopted
and ordered sent to the city council:
"Whereas, £lysian park at the pres
ent time is irregular in shape, and tbe
land adjoining tbe park is now compar
ative worthless and has but little value;
"Whereas, Tbe improvement of Ely
sian park is enhancing the value of all
lands contiguous thereto; and
"Whereas, It is necessary, in order to
fully develop and improve Klveian park,
that lots 5, 6 and 7, block 46; lot 8,
block 42, and lots 2, 3 and 4 of Hancock's
survey should be added thereto; now,
"Resolved, That the council of the
city ol Los Angeles be requested to take
the necessary steps to have said lots
condemned, and such other proceeings
that said lots be added to Elysian park
as part thereof.
["Note—The park commissioners be
ing desirous of informing tbe council
that the present road, known as tbe
Burro trail, passes over lot 8, block 42,
Hancock's survey, and is the only ac
cessible way of getting through this
park, would further state that the park
commissioners have communicated with
the owners of lots above described, and
find it impossible and impracticable
to procure said lots at the prices asked
for the same."]
There are about 225 acres lying almost
in the center of the park owned by I.
W. Hellman, George Hansen, L. and J.
Garibaldi, H. W. Keller and A. Solano.
Repeated attempts have been made to
get prices on this land, which tbe com
missioners consider reasonable for tbe
city to pay, but no offer lower than
$12,000 for 35 acres could be obtained.
The commissioners therefore urge con
demnation proceedings under tbe law of
eminent domain. They believe that
with tbe city in possession of this land
the park could be made in a not very
long time to rival the famous Golden
Gate park of San Francisco.
The pay roll for December ($2568) and
a number of demands were upproved.
Bills amounting to $573.34 were referred
to the auditing committee.

The Past Year's Revenue is Sat

San Francisco Examiner: There was
a feeling of quiet satisfaction among
tbe leading officers of the Southern
Pacific company at the corner of Fourth
and Townsend streets yesterday as
tbey contemplated the preliminary
figures of the year's transactions. It is
clearly shown by these that the opera
tions of the Southern Pacific system
will show a not gain almost as great as
that of last year.
This state of affairs ia particularly
gratifying to the managers of the prop
erty in view of the fact that so many
of the roads in the eastern states have
been disturbed by the stress of hard
times. Tbe wave of depression that
swept over the country appears to have
done less injury to the Pacific coast than
to any other section of the union, judg
ing by the effect on railroad traffic and
Tbe latest complete official returns
are no to tbe end of October of this
year, the statement showing the gross
earnings to be $40,137,000.
At tbe same time in 1892 the gross re
ceipts amounted to $40,398,000. It is
known that tbe tonnage moved by tbe
Southern Pacific during last month and
this was the largest ever known on this
coast. Tbe volume of the traffic was
unprecedented, and though the rates
were low the gross earnings amounted
to an immense sum, on account of the
quantity of freight moved.
A FAIR NET REVENUE ASSURED.
In 1892 the gross earnings amounted to
$48,972,000 and the operating expenses
were $31,288,000, giving the net result of
$17,684,000 to the good.
The operating expenses for this year
will aggregate about the same as last
year, and though the officers of the com
pany admit that tbey look for a slight
decrease in the net earnings they think
the falling off this year will be very
slight. Tbe difference will certainly be
smaller proportionately than was shown
at tbe end of October in this year, for
the reaeol that the November and De
cember receipts were muob in excess of
tbe receipts of those months last year.
A particularly pleasing phase of the
situation is tbe fact that the Pacific
coast's portion of the business was in
jured in but a Blight degree, if at all, by
tbe financial blight that touched so
many of the older communities. This
may in some part be due to the natural
recuperative capabilities of tbe com
mercial communities west of tbe Rocky
SMALL LAND SALES.
"Tbe sale of granted lands belonging
to the Central Pacific Railroad company
haß been very small in 1893, compared
to Bales of previous years," said W. H.
Mills, the company's land agent, yester
day. "Tbe business has not been more
than half what it ought to have been;
not more than half what it was in the
previous 12 months.
"I ascribe this decrease in business to
the low price of lumber and beef. Most
of the lands now held by tbe Central
Pacific company are timber lands and
grazing lands. When there is a slow
demand for beef and lumber nobody is
anxious to buy our lands.
"In Capay valley things have been
different. There we have disposed of
42 subdivisions of land, which is equiv
alent to establishing 42 new homes.
Near Merced tbe Crocker lauds are also
being taken rapidly."
Jerome Madden, land agent of tbe
Southern Pacific company, said: "The
situation this year has been deplorable.
I never saw it co bad. Tbe actual sales
were so small that I am ashamed to
make a statement for publication. The
total will not exceed 17,000 acres. We
used to sell more than that in one day
and not think much of it.
"In my mind the depression has been
caused by tbe uncertainty in regard to
tariff legislation. This hag hung ac a
cloud over tbe whole country. Then bo
many silver miners are out of employ
ment, the output of the mines baa been
curtailed and the general outlook has
been diecoaraging. Under such circum
stance nobody wanted to buy lands, no
body bad money to invest in lands or to
pay for lands that they had already
"Take it down in Fresno county, for
instance. With wheat at its present
price, what encouragement is there for
a man to plant when he knows that bis
crop will net bim a deficit instead of a
"There have been two speculative
sales in the year, but I do not claaa
them with the actual sales. One of
these ia a sale of about 26,000 acres near
Summit lake, in Fresno county, where
an extensive irrigation system is being
inaugurated. No profit is expected from
this system for four or five years.
"The same may be said of the disposal
of 500,000 acres, more or lose, in the
southern part of this state to the Colo
rado River Irrigation company. This
land lies in the vicinity of Salton, where
that great depression exists. This salo
is speculative, and the company does
not realize any immediate returns'there
Treasurer N. T. Smith of the South
ern Pacific company yesterday said that
though the past year had been one of
slow business in some ways, yet the
company bad been kept on a cash basis
throughout, and that its pay cars are
sent out regularly on tbe monthly trips.
"With tbe beginning of January I
look for better times," said Mr. Smith.
"The banks are full of money, and with
a return of confidence that is bound to
occur, this money will gradually be Bent
out, and all kinds of business will be
SUSSKIND VS. CLINE.
Judge Mr X inlay Decides ma Interesting
Jndge McKinley rendered a decision
yesterday morning in tbe case brought
by Henry Susskind against John C.
Cline, sheriff, to recover $20,000 worth
of diamonds, findings and judgment
being ordered for A. F. Hall, the as
signee and intervenor, for the possession
of the property, and for tbe defendant
Cline for his costs. •
This case has attracted the attention
of dealers in diamonds and jewelry, not
only on tbe coast bat the leading mer
chants in that line in New York, and has
come to be known in this community as
one of the celebrated cases.
In September, 1892, Mrs. L. M. Wag
ner filed her petition in insolvency and
waa adjudged an insolvent. Tbe as
signee took possession of tbe goods that
could then be found, amounting to about
$10,000 in value, and sold the same to
Henry Sasskind, distributed the pro
ceeds and obtained bis discharge. The
creditors, suspecting that a large quant
ity of goods had been concealed, waited
until the goods were brought I rum their
hiding place and put in the store with
the goods of Mr. Susskind. They then,
through their attorneys Graff & Latham,
commenced an attachment proceeding
in order to get possession of the same,
took an inventory of the goods—which
amounted to $27,000 —and through the
assignee claimed that they were part of
the goods of tbe insolvent estate which
Henry Susskind and Wagner bad con
spired to conceal for tbe purpose of de
frauding tbe creditors of L. M. Wagner.
The trial consumed the greater portion
of two weeks, and the argument was
concluded a week ago last Saturday.
Yesterday morning Judge McKinley,
before whom tbe case was tried, ordered
findings and judgment for possession of
the goods, to be entered in favor of A. I.
Hall as assignee, and a further judg
ment in favor of J. C. Cline, the sheriff,
who had taken possession of the goods
under a writ of attachment against Mrs.
L, M. Wagner, for his costs and dis
bursements in defending the suit against
A LARGE SALE.
A Real Kitate Dicker or Magnitude
One of tbe most important real estate
transactions that has taken place for
some time will be recorded today, It
comprises 3GO acres of tbe Briswalter
tract, for which Mr. G. J. Griffiths
receives the comfortable sum of $100,000,
or about $606 an acre.
The purchasers are Messrs. Grider,
Dow & Merrill, who will at once sub
divide tbe property and place it in the
market. The Southern Pacific company
is removing its tracks from San Pedro
and Pine streets and will run its Santa
Monica trains on the south boundary of
the tract. Mr. Griffith has remaining a
large acreage in that vicinity.
