ADAMS IS SICK
But Axtell Tells His Story
to the Jury
ADJOURNMENT TILL MONDAY
MBS. EROLINDA COURTNEY OF
DUARTE GOES FREE
Jhe Temple Street Cable Ca3e—A
Policeman'ts Troubles —Mort-
gaging Temperance Temple
The trial of Walter L. Webb was be
gun fn earnest yesterday morning before
Judge Van Dyke nnd a jury in Depart
ment four of the superior court, and went
on with a will until shortly before the
noon hour, when the absence of ex-Mem
ber of the Board of Education J. F. Ad
ams brought the case to a standstill, so
far as the taking of testimony is con
cerned, that must last until Monday at
While the council chamber has been
filled almost to suffocation evening after
evening during the pendency of the in
vestigation by the board, with all classes
of people, there was a woeful lack of In
terest shown in the court proceedings,
which mean in the end Webb's ignomin
iouf dismissal from or disastrous reten
tion ln office. There was room to spare
in Court room No. 4 at all times yester
day. Most of the audience consisted of
city hall hangers-on, small-caliber pol
iticians and representatives of "de push."
besides a few Individuals who are friends
of the defendant. There were also pres
ent some persons who do not love Webb
and who would be happy to witness the
downfall of the man who aimed to be
czar of the school department of Los
As a matter of fact, nothing could have
been more devoid of interest than the
rehearsal of the crookedness of Axtell.
Adams and Webb, now lacking all the
spice of novelty that lent some actuality
to the revelations of those who were held
up, as they told the corrupt doings in the
Webb sat beside his attorney, Me
serve, alert and wide-awake, prompting
his council or digging into the big vol
umes which form the evidence taken
before the grand jury, for some needed
passage with which to confront Axtell.
The member of the school board from the
Ninth ward may be Inwardly nervous as
to the results of his trial, and he has
good reason to be, but he will not be
charged with having shown lack of
sand to fight his cause, however bad it
may be. His pugnacity may yet aban
don him, but never until he shall have
fought his battle to the bitter end. His
outward demeanor in court shows no
fear —nothing but the eagerness that
hate inspires to confound his accusers
and show them up in as bad a light as
he stands himself.
The ex-superintendent of buildings
and Janitors, Axtell. chewed gum or to
bacco to give himself countenance while
on the stand and under the cross-exam
ination from the defense, which was
merciless and cruel in the extreme, if not
undeserved. Some questions he an
swered affirmatively; some of his state
ments at variance in different places he
explained as best he could; some ques
tions he parried skillfully, and when he
was pushed too far, the attorneys for the
prosecution interposed objections on the
ground that the questions were imperti
nent, irrelevant, irresponsive, immateri
al and not cross-examination. But while
the witness was ln the hands of Webb's
attorneys, although they showed that
Axtell's storia's before the board and Ax
tell's stories before the grand jury were
not alike, they failed to shake the evi
dence in chief at his examination yes
In order to save time, It was stipulat
ed between the attorneys on both sides
that Webb was the member of the
school board from the Ninth ward, and
E. E. Cooper the janitor of the Sentous
etreet school, at a monthly salary of $65.
Then Cooper was called, but failed to
answer. Axtell had just been sworn and
was ready to be examined when the jan
itor arrived. He was substituted for Ax
tell and told how he had been a janitor
for three terms. Then he related the
story of the hold-up by his superintend
ent, which has been fully related in these
columns during the investigation by the
board. He wanted to pay his assess
ment in installments, but that was de
nied him, and when he was ready to pay
he sought Axtell, who sent him to the
Key. Pitman with his $05 and directed
him to hand the sum to him. On cross
examination, Cooper denied knowing
that he had been recommended by Mem
ber C. C. Davis. He said that he saw
Webb for the first time long after he had
received his appointment.
It was now Axtell's turn. Under the
ciuestions of the prosecution the witness
went over all the matter again, which
was adduced at the investigation of the
board and the grand jury and caused
the latter body to issue its accusation
He testified, however, for the first
time yesterday that "Webb was present
at a conversation in which Adams and
himself also participated at which the
Cooper hold-up ,vas first mentioned.
Webb, he said, suggested to him that he
should get money from Cooper, and both
Highest Honors—World s Fair,
Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.
A Pure fJrape Cream of Tartar Powder.
i 40 YEARS THE STANDARD.
Adams and Webb mentioned that It
should be a month's salary.
When the witness had been sub
poenaed to appear the first time before
the grand Jury he said to Webb: "What
shall I swear to at the examination be-
fore the grand jury?" and Webb's reply
was: "That's dead easy. Swear It into
Mr. Meserve's cross examination dealt
with most of the statements witness had
made before the grand jury and at the
investigation, his purport being to show
that he had perjured himself repeatedly.
In explanation, Axtell said that some of
the testimony given by him had been
false, because he knew that if he told the
truth h,e would surely lose his position.
He testified that when he had sworn that
he had received no money from Pitman
or any one else he had obeyed instruc
Axtell denied positively that the next
day after Webb had demanded from him
his undated resignation, he tore it up
and threw it in the waste basket, sayins
that he had been misinformed, and
apologized for his hasty action. Webb,
he added, never again referred to the
resignation when he had it.
The witness further said that he had
never written, dictated or signed a letter
to Attorney Frank F. Davis releasing
him of his obligation as his lawyer not to
testify to privileged communications
which might have passed between them
respecting this case. He also denied that
Jim Hellman was present at any of his
conversations with Davis.
Mr. Meserve tried to introduce into the
case a part of the grand jury's report for
1593, in relation to schoolmasters, at
which time Axtell was also up before
that body, with a view of showing that
at that epoch, like Old Dog Tray, the
witness had fallen into bad company
On redirect examination by Major
Ponnell, Axtell was asked if he could ex
plain the conflicting statements he had
made before the grand Jury in regard to
money matters. He answered that fie
itad been under the impression at that
time that the inquiries were in regard to
money paid for positions in the school
department, and it was under that im
pression that he testified as be did. He
also said that he understood that his
resignation in the hands of Webb was
operative at any time, because it was
undated, nnd Webb had told him that he
wanted it for future use.
J. F. Adams was now called, but there
was no answer. Deputy Sheriff Fleming
was sent for, and he stated that he had
served the subpoena upon Adams on
Thursday at 11:30 a. m. The witness
was in bed sick, and protested that he
was not shamming-. Thereupon the
court ordered an attachment issued
against Adams returnable at 12:45, and
an adjournment until that hour was
At that hour the officer reported Adams
still in bed. and unable to dress, where
upon Drs. Campbell and Hagan were
appointed to visit the invalid and report
at 10 o'clock next Monday, to which time
the case was continued, notwithstand
ing the protests of the defense.
And Now Sesma Whom She Shot
Boars Because of His Expenses
The case of Erolinda Courtney,
charged with an assault to murder, was
dismissed yesterday by Judge Smith on
motion of the district attorney's office.
It will be remembered that Erolinda
Courtney, a Mexican woman, shot R
young man named Juan Sesma in the
back on September 27th near Duarte.
Mrs. Courtney was a married woman,
living apart from her husband, who was
credited with consorting with male
companions and being addicted to drink.
It is said by Sesma and his friends that
she, like Mrs. Potlphar, forced her at
tentions upon the coy Juan, and that he.
even as the chaste Joseph had done, tied
from her blandishments and sought la
bor in the fields with a spade.
There the jealous and scorned Erolin
da followed him and shot twice at the
man. who in consequence of a bullet in
the loins was laid up ln bed for a month
and nearly died.
The case was all ready for trial when
it wa,s dismissed, owing to a misunder
standing between the deputy- district at
torney who had the case in charge and
the complaining witness and his friends.
They had stated at one time that they
were willing to drop the prosecution if
the Courtneys would pay Sesma's ex
penses during his illness, and thus the
case stood yesterday when it was dis
But no sooner had the defendant been
discharged than Mr. Sesma commenced
complaining because he had not received
a cent of his medical or other expenses,
and he considers himself aggrieved. Er
olinda has gone back to her husband Jim
and it Is not unlikely that this action of
hers is in a measure accountable for
Sesma's present roar.
TEMPLE STREET CABLE
The Petition to Discontinue Part of
the Road to Be Withdrawn
The matter of Alvord against the Tem
ple Street Cable Railway company was
heard yesterday before Judge Allen in
the superior court and the petition from
the receiver of the road, Ed T. Wright,
for leave to discontinue the running of
cars from Texas street to the western
city limits was denied. This matter is
now in the hands of the city council,
which expects to deal with it at its next
The people of the locality to be affect
ed, if the measure should carry, are up in
arms against it and will protest as hard
as they can next Monday in the city hall,
if it be necessary, but everything indi
cates that the obnoxious petition will be
withdrawn at that time.
It is said by the managers of the road
to have been due entirely to the initia
tive of Receiver Wright, and that they
are not in harmony with the contemplat
ed step, because the present income of
the road, for one thing, does not justify
it, and because they are also averse to
relinquish a valuable franchise to a
part of the road which must in time be
come well settled.
On the authority of Edgar E. Lefevre,
an attorney-at-law, who is connected
with the management of the cable road,
it may be stated that Wright's petition
to the council Is to be withdrawn.
He Need Not Tell Them to a Police
man ns He Is One Himself
In the case of Louisa Matuskiwiz vs.
Wm. Matuskiwiz, an action for divorce,
Judge York yesterday made an order
that plaintiff have the custody of the
children but Unit defendant have leave
to see them at Mrs. Matuskiwiz's place
of residence between 1 and 5 oclock
daily, pending trial. The reason for this
order was the desire of the defendant to
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1897
take out his children today to show them
a Christmas tree, to which his wife ob
jected because on the four or Aye occa
sions, since their separation, that he
has taken them for a walk he kept them
out too late.
Mrs. Matuskiwiz filed an affidavit in
which, among other weighty reasons,
stated that on the last occasion her hus
band, who is a policeman, took out the
two boys,3 and 6 years of age respective
ly, he kept them away until after night
time. When they were brought home
they smelled strongly of beer and both
were sick afterward.
She also says that she and her mother
have prepared presents for the children,
and it is their desire that they be allowed
Christmas at their own home.
Ofticer Matuskiwiz has always main
tained thut his troubles are due to too
THE JURY DISAGREED
Crandall Has Another Chance to Try
The fate of Frank D. Crandall was
placed in the hands of the Jury in De
partment one at 12:34 yesterday after
noon, after Dt-puty District Attorney
-McComas had made a stirring closing
argument for the people and Judge
Smith had read voluminous Instructions
to the jury. At 6:18 no intimation had
been received that they were getting
near an agreement, and the court or
dered them to be called in.
In response to a query from the court
as to how they stood with regard to num
bers, but not as to the guilt or innocence
of the defendant, the foreman, who had
evidently not well understood, blurted
out: "We stand eight for conviction and
four for acquittal." Judge Smith was
not please at this lack of jury etiquette,
but his protest was mild. Upon an as
surance from another juror that there
was a prospect for an agreement, they
were ordered back to deliberate.
Again at 10:30 in the evening they
came into court with the same tale, eight
for conviction and four for acquittal.
On the representation of the foreman
that there was little probability of an
agreement's being reached, they were
A Petition to Mortgage It for $20,000
The Woman's Christian Temperance
union of Southern California yesterday
petitioned for leave to mortgage Temper
ance temple, corner of Temple and
Broadway, for $20,000. There is due up
on the building now $13,000 and the union
desires to make in it various improve
ments which will cost $7000.
The lower and a larger part of the
second story now devoted to an audi
torium that is not remunerative will be
converted into stores and offices, by
which the revenue and rents could be
materially Increased. The petition is
signed by Mrs. Lizzie H. Meserve, who
is the president of the union.
Mrs. Marlntt's Complaint
The complaint in the suit of Josephine
Marlatt against Louis B. Marlatt has
been ordered dismissed by Judge York.
It was a case in which a husband had
conveyed by deed to his son all tha com
munity property, leaving no provision
for the wife's support. She alleged
fraud. On the other hand the defend
ant claimed that his mother and him
self had compromised by Mrs. Marlatt
accepting as payment in full a promis
sory note for $1500 payable Jan. 1, 1905.
The court held that such was the condi
tion of affairs and that the plaintiff was
not entitled to a partition of her de
ceased husband's estate or to a decree
annulling the deed.
Judge Allen yesterday set the argu
ment in the ease of the city of Los Ange
les against W. W. Everett, the abscond
ing police court clerk, and his bonds
men for Jan. 15. In the meantime on
the 3d of the same month the case of Ah
Louie vs. Police Judge Owens is to come
up in bank, and as it will turn upon the
non-legality of the acts of police judges
and police clerks in the city of Los An
geles under the Whitney act since the
beginning of 1596, which is a part of the
defense in the Everett case, the litigants
expect that the judgment of the whole
bench in the Ah Louie case will be as a
guiding star to them to lead them out
of troubled waters in their own suit.
The accusation cfi J. Heckenlively,
who charged Justice of the Peace G. W.
Waite of Compton with having illegally
charged him $1.50 for drawing up a
bond in a criminal case, was dismissed
yesterday by Superior Judge Shaw on
One of the allegat!ons was that the
accusation did not state facts sufficient
to constitute the charge or offense con
templated by section 772 of the penal
code, nor facts sufficient to require the
defendant to plead or make further an
swer to the charge. Judgment was or
dered for the justice of the peace for his

THE PRESIDENT'S EXPECTED OR
DER OH CIVIL SERVICE
A Heat Point of Law Raised in the
Hawaiian Annexation Bill—Re
lief for the Klondike
WASHINGTON, D. C, Doc. 18.—(Spe
cial Correspondence to The Herald.)
The civil service law has been more dis
cussed during the present session of con
press than any other subject. A speech
for or against the civil service has been
injected Into the discussion of every
bill that has come before the house. And,
as indicative of a desire for further dis
cussion of this question, the part of the
legislative appropriation bill relating to
civil service has been held for action
after the holidays. A good many bills
have been introduced on this subject
some to repeal the law entirely; some to
make various modifications. From the
persistency of the spoilsmen, it seems
probable that there will be either a com
plete or partial repeal of the law. This
is not at all sure, however, because the
quiet force of the great body of the peo
ple who are favorable to the law will, per
haps, affect the members more ln their
votes than it does in their talk. It is re
ported today upon fairly good authority
that tho president, who is in favor of
civil service will anticipate any radical
action against the law by congress by
issuing a modification order. This order
will rescind a good part of the famous
blanket order of President Cleveland,
placing at one time 43,000 offices under
the classified service. It Is expected that
this order will remove from the classified
list all bonded officials, such as deputy
collectors of customs, deputy collectors
of internal revenue, deputy marshals,
assistant district attorneys, assistant
sub-treasurers, and probably the chiefs
of divisions in the departments and
probably the departmental messengers
One of the neatest points of law which
congress has encountered in some time
has developed in Senator Morgan's bill
Tor the annexation of the Hawaiian is
lands. Senator Morgan incorporates in
his bill the language of the Hawaiian
treaty. The treaty could be passed only
by a two-thirds vote, and that It could
not get. The bill, of course, could pass
by a majority. Hence the question: Is
it legal for the bill to use the language
of the treaty and therefore enact into
law by a majority vote a treaty which
would require a two-thirds vote? Some
of the best lawyers in the senate are
on each Eide of the question. Its solution
will come after the reassembling of con
Several resolutions have been intro
duced looking to the relief of sufferers
in the Klondike country. Secretary of
War Alger leaves for Ottawa tonight to
advise with the Canadian government
upon joint measures of relief to be car
ried out by Canada and the United
States. Samuel S. Dunham, the expert
of the department of labor, who was
some time ago sent to the Klondike, has
not been heard from, and it is feared
that he is lost or has perished from hun
ger or cold.
Senator Cannon of Utah opened up
a new question by introducing a resolu
tion calling upon the secretary of the
treasury for his authority for using the
revenue cutters to arrest or detain ves
sels supposed to be used in filibustering.
A feature of congress has been the
number of bills introduced providing for
national parks. Such bills have been in
troduced affecting Vicksburg, the battle
of Dade's massacre, parts of the state of
Washington, a road through the Yosem
ite, work on the stage roads of the Yel
lowstone and other places—all showing
great interest in the extension of the
national park system.

To Whom It May Concern:—
This Is to cert by that Dr. Wong Ulm cured me
of liver and kidney troubles. I was greatly con
stipated and my back ached so much that I had
great trouble In steeping. When 1 went to Dr.
Wong Htm, he felt my pulse and said my troubles
were caused by In grippe which I had several
years ago. He knew more about my system than
X thought anyone could know. I took his medicine
as directed, and nm now well. I have gained eight
Bounds during the last month: eat better, sleep
etter and feel better ln every way than for years,
I can cheerfully recommend Dr. Wong Him to the
sick. Yours truly, HAItVEY DAVIS,
