A Chinaman Arrested for a Misde
meanor Has No Remedy but a
Writ to Be Released
The autocratic ways of some of tho em
ployes in the police department cropped up
again yesterday when Ah Jim, s Chinaman,
had to apply for a writ of habeas corpus
to regain his liberty. Jim, the Celestial,
was arrested Monday night by Sergeant
Smith and Officers Phillips and Blackburn
and charged with conducting an opium
joint. Sergeant Smith instructed the desk
clerk to accept no bail in his case. It was so
entered on the police blotter and cash bail
was refused when presented by the pris
oner's friends. Ah Kee, another heathen
who was on a visit to Ah Jim's place, was
also arrested at the same time for smok
ing opium, but in his case no detentlve or
der was promulgated by Sergeant Smith
and $100 was accepted for his appearance
before Justice Owens yesterday afternoon.
In the face of the positive refusal of the
police to release Ah Jim on bonds, he en
gaged the services of Lawyer Treat, who
had tho prisoner brought up before Supe
rior Judge Van Dyke yesterday forenoon
on a writ of habeas corpus. After hearing
the facts the court ordered Ah Jim's re
lease until arraignment in the Justice's
court on furnishing a $200 bond, which was
immediately given. Ah Jim has now hired
three lawyers, Messrs. Phibbs, Treat and
Appel, and proposes to light his case vigor
The chief of police was kept in ignorance
of the action of his subordinates until the
writ was served on him, and it is said that
he emphatically expressed his disapproval
of their actions. This matter of refusing
bail in petty cases sometimes leads to
ludicrous contradictions. As a defense,
the police claim that legally they have no
right to accept bail, but It is seldom re
fused in misdemeanor cases. If it was not
legal to take it in Ah Jim's case it could
not be legal to take it in Ah Kee's.
A short time ago a woman was arrested
on Third street and charged witli intoxi
cation. Oposite her name was the entry
"No bail." Before noon the next day a
"pull" had been successfully workeel and
she was released on her own recognizance.
At. 1:30 in the afternoon the remarks, "No
complaint" was set opposite her name, and
that was the last of this case. Yet it was
allegeel that this drunken woman not only
had debauched a district messenger boy,
but had drawn a dirk upon a police officer
with murderous Intent.
The Jury Visits the Spot to Determine
This —A Chapter in Chase's Life
In the damage suit trial of Mrs. Elizabeth
B. Church against the Los Angeles Rail
way company for serious hurts alleged to
havo been received by falling off a car, as
the result of Ihe negligence of the cor
poration's employes, the plaintiff con
cluded her side of the case yesterday. The
jury was then taken out In charge of the
sheriff to view the place where the acci
dent occurred, on F street near the Pico
Heights postofflce. Tho defense will at
tempt to show this afternoon that It was
entirely due to her own neglect that Mrs.
Church was injured.
During tho forenoon session a pension
agent named M. M. Chase, who has made
the acquaintance of various jails In hi*
time, was placed on the stand in behalf of
the plaintiff. From where he stood, on th»
opposite side of F street at the time of
the accident, this witness claimed, he hart
been able to see everything that happened,
and the clmcumstanc»s were as alleged by
Mrs. Church. The defense claimed that If
Chare stood where he swore lie was the
body of the car intervened between his
view and the Jt'rson of Mrs. Church, and it
would have been a physical impossibility
for the witness to have perceived what he
said had occurred. It was for the pur
pose of determining the veracity or other
wise of this witness' testimony that the
jury was taken out to the spot.
On cross-examination Chase wa.s asked
If he had ever been convicted of a felony,
to which he cheerfully replied that he had
ait hough as innocent as tbe unborn babe
Peing> requested! to> tell; the- way In-which
he became an inmate of the penitentiary,
Mr. Chase said that he was at a railway
station up north on his way to visit Ore
gon relatives, having in his possession $845.
a railway ticket and a gold watch and
chain. He visited a saloon at this station
and was drugged. When he woke up his
wealth was gone. A man told him to gel
aboard of the train, as it was ready to
start. Chase told him that he had been
robbed and was dead broke. His Inter
locutor told him that he was the con
ductor; to get on the train and it would be
all right.
Chase followed this advice, and very soon
the real conductor came along and asked
him for his ticket. He said he had none.
But a party who sat beside Chase broke
in with; "Ohl yes. you have a pass! Here
It is," and the fellow pulled a pass out of
the witness' vest pocket and handed it to
the conductor, who pronounced it a for
gery, anil the man beside Chase and an
other party near by, who were di teotives,
pulled in the victim of circumstances and
had him tried for forgery. The jury
choose to believe the witnesses for the
prosecution and took no stock in Chase's
story. And thus it happened that he was
sentenced to the penitentiary. "But," ad
ded Mr. Chase, with pride, "they didn't
make me do any work in the pen, and
treated me like a guard while I was there,
and they didn't lock me up Inside."
Mr. Chase also admitted that he had
Eone under the alias of General Fitzgerald
when he was in the employ of the San
Francisco Call as reporter, and that he

The City Concludes Its Evidence and
Defendants Will Now Testify
All the oral evidence for the plaintiff
was submitted yesterday before Judge
York in the suit of the city against the
Crystal Springs Land and Water company
and the Los Angeles City Water company,
and the defendants will today proceed to
lay before the court their side of the case.
The defendants deny that the basin
through which the Los Angeies river runs
is composed of sand and other loose ma
terial, and that Its banks are composed of
such materia! that the water from the sur
face permeates and percolates to a great
distance or sinks considerably below the
bed. It is also denied that excavations
made in the valley will diminish the quan
tity of water flowing in the stream. While
it ls admitted that it would be possible by
excavations cut beneath the river to di
vert the surface water, they deny having
made such. Defendants review the his
tory of Los Angeles grants under
the Spanish and Mexican regimes,
the saie of the Los Fcliz ranch to
a, J. Griffith, of the sale of ihe water
rights of the latter to the city, and deny
the rights claimed by the plaintiff to have
been vested in ths city under this convey
On the other hand, the defendants assert
their rights to develop water in the five
acre tract known as the Crystal Springs
tract, and by means of excavations gath
ering 090 inches of water, measured under a
four-inch pressure. They deny that the
water developed by Its system diminishes
the flow in the river.

The Matter of Dividing the Spoils of
the Orange Growers at Issue.
, Notes and Personals
All Is not as smooth as It might be be
tween the Santa Fe and Southern Pacie
In the Iniquitous agreement to pool on
orange shipments. As was predicted in
this paper some weeks ago would be the
case, President Ripley ot the Santa Fe is
discovering that he ls no match at all for
Mr. Huntington when it comes to finan
ciering or railroading. Mr. Ripley finds
himself outgeneraled, and the opinion of
many railway men expressed early in the
season, when it first became known that
the two lines had combined, ls being ver
lled, that they would repeat the lion and
the lamb story, and lie down together, on'.y
that Ripley would be the lamb in
side of Huntington. The main rea
son why orange growers find that they
have to pay $1.25 on their oranges year
after year Is this form of combination. It
has always existed of late years between
the two lines to a small extent, but this
season it was formetl on a large scale by
Mr. Ripley, who thought that he could not
get too much of a good thing, and. like
many others before him, classified Mr.
Huntington as the good thing. Now be is
beginning to think differently.
It seems that the Union Pacific and the
Rio Grande Western have not been satis
fied of late with their share of the orangs
business untler the agreement, and that
Mr. Ripley has also had his eyes opened to
the mistake that has been made in finding
tho hostility general in Southern Califor
nia against his road.
During the closure of the Fairview tun
nel on his line he was obliged to turn over to
the Southern Pacific the orange traffic,
and now the latter line has 1100 cars the
advantage of the Santa Fe. According to
the terms of the agreement, It is necessary
for the Southern Pacific to turn over to
the Santa Fe shipments enough to keep the
account even, but this Mr. Huntington, it is
said, has declined to do, but instead has
tendered to Mr. Ripley a check for the dif
ference between the cost of transporting
the fruit and the money received, in other
words, the protlt. Mr. Ripley, however,
was curious to find out what it cost the
Southern Pacific to carry freight, so he
asked for a bill of details, and this seemed
to be too large, and he has remonstrated,
calling for his balance of 1100 carloads, or
a settlement on a basis of what it would
have cost the Santa Fe to have hauled the
same fruit. There is considerable feeling
about the matter among the men con
cerned, but it is thought that Mr. Ripley
finds himself in such a position that it is
better for him to swallow his discomfit
ure and finish the season without a rup
ture of the pooling agreement.
But there are two other lines, the Union
Pacific and the Rio Grande Western,
which claim that they have not had their
share of the shipments, and they propose
to bring the matter up before the trans
continental freight bureau, at its meeting
at Monterey this month. The fight is in
teresting, but meanwhile the orange
grower has to be content and get bis ten
cents a box for his fruits while he watches
the railways quarreling about the division
of what they have spoiled from him.
The Southern Pacific has put a time table
into effect which permits of the round trip
to Catalina in one day, giving thirty min
utes on the island.
The Santa Fe has thrown away all Its
brooms and dusters, and cleans Its cars en
tirely by compressed air. administered by
means of a hose. It does not leave an
atom of dust in any corner.
All of the Santa Fe cars are being fitted
with electric lighting apparatus.
Los Angeles commercial travelers are
trying to get a rate of 2)6 cents a mile be
tween points in Arizona and New Mexico
and this city.
Richard Kerens of the Terminal railway,
who Intended to come to Los Angeles this
month, states that he will stay in Wash
ington until the San Pedro harbor matter
Is settled.
The San Francisco papers are urging
the construction of a line between Mo.lave
and Bakersfleld, connecting the Valley
road with the Southern Pacific and the
Santa Fe. The gap is only sixty-eight
miles long, and would give the state an
other overland railway.
Peter Harvey, general agent of the Balti
more and Ohio, is in the city.
General Agent Claudius Colby of the Erie
ls ln Southern California for a short stay.
A. J. Stratton. general agent of the Chi
cago and Great Western, ls In town.
It appears now as if the general freight
agents of the railways would make a
small reduction In orange freight rates
for the remainder of the shipping season.
Yesterday afternoon the growers' com
mittee appointed by the recent conven
tion of orchardists met the Santa Fe and
Southern Pacific agents and had a long
conference on the subject. The commit
tee consists of Messrs. Packard, Griffith.
Johnson. Blanchard, R. H. Young, Ruggies
and Major Klokke.
Nothing more was done than, to discuss
the matter in a general way. but the rail
road men held out some Idea that a con
cession might be made, though the de
mand for a reduction from to 75 cents
was considered to be too extreme. Fur
ther conferences will be held, and as soon
as possible the question will be laid before
the general freight agents of the two lines.
It is probable, however, that the final ac
tion will be taken by the transcontinental
freight bureau, which meets at Monterey
on the 21st Instant. At this trfiie the freight
authorities of all the line concerned will
be present and they will have full power
to act.
It has been reported for some time that
the Los Angeles and Santa Monica Elec
tric company intended to erect a handsome
building on a lot of their own on the south
side of Fourth street, between Broadway
and Hill, for their general offices. Pres
ident E. P. Clark yesterday said that the
company had Intended to put up a good
edilice there, but the matter was now at
a standstill. A movement has about suc
ceeded to cut an alley through the block,
taking twenty feet off the frontage of the
lot. The matter Is now in the hands of
the commissioners, and it will be several
months before the company can come to
a decision as to its plant 1 .. Mr. Clark thinks
that tho ruling taking so much of his
frontage is very unjust.
Police Detectives Told Where to Go to
Get Them
Ed Rogers and L. A. Armstrong were
yesterday arraigned before Commissioner
Van Dyke, charged with counterfeiting
United States coin. The hearing was set
for Monday at 2 p. m and bail fixed at $200
each, ln default off which they were re
manded to the custody of the marshal.
The arrest of the men was accomplished
late Monday night by the police detectives.
Armstrong and Rogers lived in a lodging
house at the corner of Third and Los An
fc-elos streets, where they ran their counter
feiting outfit. Armstrong was the driver
of a milk wagon and his partner Is a cook,
it is thought that the former passed the
spurious coin on his milk route, but ap
parently this was too slow a way of get
ting rich, so they looked around for a
speedier means of putting the stuff ln cir
culation. They were introduced to Henry
Simmons, a photographer, to whom it was
suggested that he aid them in passing the
bogus money. Simmons said he did not
care to go into the deal, but knew a crook
who would. He then reported the matter
to the police. A detective was Introduced
as the crook and was shown all tho moulds
for the dollars, halves and quarters that
the pair were making, together with all the
outfit. This detective stepped outside the
door a minute and then two other detect
ives walked into the room and arrested the
men. It is thought that In addition to the
pair being counterfeiters, they have nlso
been engaged ln petty stealing, as quanti
ties of cigars and cigarettes were found in
their trunks.
Jordan, an Ex-Whittier Inmate Es
caped From the Officer—Haley,
the Other Suspect, Released
Somewhere in the county a young man
named Norman Jordan is trying to get rid
of a pair of handcuffs that were not pre
sented to him to keep, while Officer Ben
Robbins is lying awake of nights trying
to figure out how he will be able to recover
those same articles ot authority. Jordan
was arrested Monday night and the brace
lets were placed upon him, but he bolted
with them and has been at large over
Jordan is believed to have participated in
the recent hold-up of the Lagur.a saloon,
kept by F. Escallier, on the Whittler road.
The robbery occurred Saturday night. Es
callier and his son were held up at the
point of a pistol by two masked men, who
bound and gagged them. The robbers
ransacked the place and secured about 535
In cash. The officers had been told to look
out for Jordan and take him to the police
station. About 8 oclock Monday night Of
ficer Robbins discovered Jordan seated
in the boat house at Westlake park, drink
ing with another man. Jordan was at
once taken In charge by the officer, and,
upon demurring, was handcuffed. The
officer took his prisoner to the corner of
Seventh and Alvarado streets and tele
phoned for the patrol wagon. While
standing at the corner Jordan suddenly
bolted across Seventh street and struck
down Alvarado street, with Officer Rob
bins and Special Officer Williams in pur
suit. Robbins drew his revolver, but the
weapon would not work, so he had to try
to run down his man, which he failed to
do. In justice to Robbins, however, it
must be said that he would have caught
his man bad he not been bundled up with
his big club and dress uniform, which re
tarded him seriously. Jordan ran sev
eral blocks south on Alvarado street, and
then double back across lots to Westlake
park and disappeared in the foliage, all
further trace of him being lost.
Officer Robbins then went and took Ar
thur Hale} - from his home on Orange
street, on suspicion of having also been
implicated in the saloon hold-up. Haley
denied positively at the police station ever
having had any recent affiliations with
Jordan, but he was locked up, nevertheless.
Yesterday Detective Goodman went out
to the Laguna saloon and brought Escal
lier and his barkeeper to the station for
the purpose of identifying Haley. This
they failed to do, and upon their express
ing the positive opinion that Haley was
not one of the robbers, he was released.
Jordan is a tough customer and has al
ready served a sentence in the Whittier
Reform school for burglary.
