NIC CREEDE'S WIDOW
BOSS VOX IMPRESS THE COURT
SHE MADE A VALID CONTRACT
Wltb, Creede and Judge Clark Orders
That Her Contest of the Will
Shall Be Dismissed
Nld Creede's will, so far as the widow's
•ontest of it is concerned, has been sus
tained by Judge Clark; so also the oontract
by whloh upon the payment to her of 320.
--000 Mrs. Creeds renounced all further
claim to the estate of her husband. The
court does not pass on the question raised
tbat the will Is Invalid because it is not
signed and attested according to law, hold
ing that it is unnecessary and would be im
proper on account of there being another
contest pending on that ground.
The story ot Nlc CreeUe and his career
Is well known to the public, but many are
not sufficiently familiar with it to know
what an Interesting situation was created
by his death and the subsequent develop
ments In connection with the disposition of
bis estate. Creede was a miner and Mrs.
Creede, previous to their marriage, accom
panied him on his prospecting tours for two
or three years. In that time they discov
ered and became possessed oil a. mine ln
Colorado which proved a bonanza. She
thereupon induced the old man to marry
her, and the ceremony was performed at
Las Vegas in May of 1803. She had been
a party to several previous unsuccessful
marrlgaes, but through the kindness of In
dulgent divorce courts and the intervention
of providence had been freed from these
marital entanglements, and the court finds
that thlsi marriage was valjd. and bind
The couple ultimately settled An
geles and from the proceeds of their for
tunate mineral discovery were able to live
a life of ease and idleness. But wealth did
not bring domestic happiness to them, and
ln the subsequent litigation it developed
that Creede was frequently attracted by
the fresher charms of a certain housemaid,
and .whether from this cause or not It does
not clearly appear, but In the latter part
of 189S negotiations were opened by which
the couple sought to agree on terms of
separation. On January 2,1887, these nego
tiations culminated ln the desired separa
tion, Mrs. Creede receiving J20.000 In cash
and tendering a receipt by which she agreed
to release Creede "from all obligations or
liabilities of every name, nature or de
scription to either provide for my support
or maintenance or from any inheritance
that L might have from his estate in case
of his death; and after this date I shall
have no claim on him for any purpose
whatever, this being intended as a full and
complete settlement of all property Inter
ests between N. C. Creede and myself."
After receiving the 520,000, paid in cash at
the First National bank. Mrs. Creede went
to Mississippi, and Creede brought a suit
for divorce. The wife, who bore an unen
viable reputation as somewhat of a high
flyer, learned of this suit through the regu
lar channels, telegraphed a notice of con
test and started for Los Angeles post
haste. Creede died while she was on her
way here, and although the report was
never fully corroborated, tt was generally
supposed that his death was brought about
by his <swn desire to rid himself of the
troubles and responsibilities of this life.
He left a will in which he bequeathed the
bulk of. hts estate, valued at about $150,000,
to a little adopted daughter. Edith Dorothy
Creede. Mrs. Creede. thus deprived of an
opportunity to contest the legal separation
which her husband had obtained from a
higher authority than she was capable of
reaching, set herself about doing what
ever she could to get another "swipe" at
the property. She therefore contested the
probate of the will on the grounds that she
was the widow of the deceased and that
the Instrument offered for probate was
never signed by the deceased nor attested
by subscribing witnesses, as required by
the statute. The heirs contended that she
was not Creede's widow and that her In
terest in the estate was estopped by the
contract which she signed on January 2.
1897. after being paid $20,000 by Creede.
The court now finds that she is the true
and lawful widow of Creede, and In thnt
respect Is entitled to contest the will. Bm
the contest Is dismissed on the ground that
the contract she signed was valid. On this
point the court says:
"X wile may release or contract away her
Inheritable interest ln her husband's prop
erty and thereby debar herself of the right
to administer his estate or to question any
disposition thereof that he may make by
his last will and testament. Counsel for the
wife contend that she did not do so; that
the contract in question was tbe product
of undue influence. There is evidence tend
ing to show that Creede's housemaid was
the apple of discord and that there was
a deep-laid conspiracy on the part of
Creede, assisted by his attorney, Jones, and
agent. Hunter, to rid himself of the con
testant to the end that he might marry
the girl. There Is not sufficient evidence
to justify such a finding. The contestant
■ testified that while she saw Creede and the
housemaid kissing and hugging she did not
care. This is probably true, for a woman
entertaining the notions with respect to the,
relations of the sexes held by contestant, as
evidenced by her history, would not be apt
to be affected by such lapses on the part
of a husband.
"But that there was discord Is admitted,
and accordingly in December, 1896, we find
them negotiating for a settlement of prop
erty rights and a separation. It was finally
agreed that they should meet and together
go to the bank, and accordingly they did so,
an agreement being entered Into and $20,
--000 being paid by Creede to his wife in the
presence of President Elliott cf the First
National bank. Mr. Elliott testifies that
the contestant appeared to be entirely ra
tional at this time and to understand the
nature and character of her act. I have
not lost sight of the evidence that the con
testant was for years a confirmed opium
or morphine eater, and that the result of
such a habit Is to weaken the intellect and
powers of resistance: so, too. the rule that
where a contract between husband and
wife by which the husband acquires an
advantage is questioned by the wife, pre
sumption Is that It was without adequate
consideration and procured by undue In
fluence has been kept In mind.
"The wife testifies to no nagging, solici
tations, importunities or threats upon the
husband's part or to any unfair advantage
taken of the marital confidence, If any
marital confidence existed, and the nego
tiations seem to have been conducted en
tirely by plaintiff and by the deceased's at
torney. Indeed, viewing the evidence as a
' •whole and taking Into consideration the
character of the contestant as disclosed by
her testimony, no conclusion can be reached
save that she found this marriage, as she
found so many other marriages, a failure,
and was ready and willing, to use her own
expression, 'to get up and get out,' her
only anxiety being as tc the amount of
money she should receive.
"The estate, estimated to be ot the value
of tUtsOOO. I find to be the separate prop
erty of the deceased. Should he die Intes
tate the widow would succeed to a one
half, but he might, as It Is claimed he did,
exclude her and dispose of the whole there
of by will. She had but an expectancy, and
I fall to see why the court should hold that
for a release thereof the sum of 820,000 was
not an adequate consideration. It follows
that the complaint of Mrs. Creede must be
dismissed. Let such order be entered."
The matter of thts estate is being settled
much more rapidly than was expected. A
contest for the guardianship of the little
adopted daughter, in which there were
five applicants' claims presented, was last
week decided in favor of Mrs. Bashford,
the child's mother, and since the foregoing
decision of the widow's contest of the will,
there now remains but the contest ln behalf
of the child herself. This proceeding is
founded on the claim that the will is not a
valid one, because it was not attested and
signed according to law, and It was for
the reason that this contest was pending
that the court did not pass on this point
in Mrs. Creede's case.
Little Edith Dorothy Creede, under the
terms of the will, is heir to a large portion
of the estate, but by a provision of the
document, in order to ever come into pos
session of the property, must maintain a
chaste and moral character until she
reaches womanhood. It Is this provision
that the contestant probably seeks to
knock out, rather than that which only
gives the child a portion of the estate; not
through fear that there will be any deslr*
on the part of the little one to violate the
requirement, but because it might prove a
dangerous incentive to unscrupulous and
deslKning persons to make a target of the
girl's character. The court could, with
propriety, hold that the will is valid with
the exception of the clause in question, and
such a decision wesrK undoubtedly be sat
isfactory to those h«ving the child's welfare
Mrs. Creede may, of course, appeal her
contest to the supreme court.

TWO DIVORCE SUITS
Mrs. Bergstrand Successful but Mrs.
Herman Makes a Failure
Judge Shaw finds that to dispose of all
the divorce cases as rapidly as they come
up for hearing would entail an amount of
labor which cannot property be required of
a court ln the season customarily devoted
to the enjoyment of vacations, and has
therefore adopted a plan looking to relict
from what under the most favorable cir
cumstances is both an unpleasant and
wearisome character of, litigation. Two
divorce suits will be heard each day this
week excepting Saturday, and the quota
for that day will probably not be long in
Yesterday's cases were those of L ,M.
Harman against William Herman ami E.
B. Bergstrand against C. E. Bergstrand.
In the latter a decree was granted, but
Judge Shaw seemed to believe there was a
"nigger in the wood pile" in connection
with the former case, and denied the pe
Mrs. Harman sued 1 for a divorce on the
ground of 111-usage, failure to provide ana
abandonment. The testimony Introduced
in an endeavor to sustain these complaints
went a long way toward doing so, but one
of the witnesses, Mabel Brown, through
the court's questioning, stated that on one
occasion the wife threw a cup at the hus
band, and he thereupon struck her and
left the house, taking his trunk with him.
The wife seemed to consider this testimony
as a great Joke, and indulged in a hearty
laugh over It. Subsequently she ventured
to prompt the witness, and was severely
reprimanded by the court for her trouble.
All these circumstances combined to cause
the court to feel that the wife irtlght be
somewhat to blame for the trouble; any
way, he denied the decree. Mrs. Harman
had three children ln court with her, and
one of them, a mere tot of a girl, was
placed on the stand to testify how cuelly
her papa had treated them. The wife
states that shesupports herself by nursing.
Mrs. E. B. Bergstrand was a much
abused lltMe lady who was married to C. E.
Bergstrand In Pasadena two years ago. He
was a Jeweler, and she had a flourishing
millinery business, so between them the
income was no Insignificant one. But not
long after the marriage Mrs. B. discovered
that her husband had a mania for gambling
and that all hie salary was being Sacrificed
LOS ANGELES HERALD, WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST f7,1898
to the god Mess of chance. The family
larder was supported mainly through the
efforts of the wile, and this condition
Anally caused the millinery stock lo become
so depleted that It would no longer do for
such a fastidious and fashionable city
as Pasadena. They moved to Santa
Monica, and the same result. The wife
Anally became so discouraged that she
eventually gave up her store, and they
moved to Los Angeles, where Mr. Berg
strand secured employment in the Rival
Jewelry store on South Broadway. He
kept up his gambling, and Mrs. B. was
forced to go to the store on pay night ln
order to Iget his weekly wages before he
had wasted It.
But such a situation could not prevail al
ways, and one memorable night the hus
band, according to the plaintiff's story,
coldly told her he no longer loved her.
Separation followed, and the wife ailleges
that for some time after he lived with an
other woman at 822 South Spring street.
What Anally became of him did not appear
ln the testimony, but as the court granted
the wife a decree he is now free to dis
tribute his charms wherever and on whom
soever he may choose.
In a Peck of Trouble as the Result of a
William McN'ally, who was recently ar
rested at San Pedro on the charge of crim
inally assaulting a nine-year-old girl, was
yesterday arraigned before Judge Shaw.
According to McNally's story his trouble
Is altogether the outcome of a three weeks'
spree, during which he apparently got him
self into such a condition that he neither
knew nor was accountable for what he did.
On the night given as the date of the
crime he wandered Into the boarding house
of Mrs. Caznax at San Pedro and secured
a room. He was drunk, and soon found
it necessary to leave the apartment for a
short time after he was undressed and
ready for bed. According to his story,
when he returned he got into the wrong
room, and, through this error, crawled'into
bed with' the little daughter of the land
lady. The next thing he knew he was
flying through the streets with an angry
father brother in hot pursuit. He af
terward succeeded in rescuing his trousers
from the room in which he had undressed,
and was found and arrested next day while
wandering about the piers.
Mrs. Caznax, the complaining witness in
the case, alleges that the little girl came
screaming to her soon after MeNally was
shown to his room. The little one's un
derwear was badly torn, and her story led
them to make the charge under which the
man was arrested.
However mitigating the circumstances.
MeNally finds himself In a scrape which
will prove a most valuable temperance les
son to him, whatever the outcome may be.
GAS AND OIL
Suit Between Developers for Alleged
Breach of Contract
Justice Young had a hard time to keep
two litigants from violating the time
honored dignity of the court yesterday. Tne
case before him was that ot W. M.
wieler against A. H. Hedley, in which the
plaintiff sought to recover »i2O for breach
The plaintiff alleged that in September,
1536, he entered into a live year's contract
with the defendant by which he was to use
the gas of two wells as a partial considera
tion for the pumping of the oil from th:
wells. All went well until in December ot
the same year, according to the complaint,
when the defendant cut the pipe of one
well and maliciously set fire to the gas. In
May, 1?9", he is alleged to have shut off the
other well, thus refusing to furnish any
more gas as per contract. The plalnt'fT
values the gas of the first well at $30 per
month and of the other at $10 and there
fore sues for $220 and costs.
The defendant made no answer further
than a general denial, but ln the trinl yes
terday seemed just aching to tell the plain
tiff what he thought of him. The court
and attorneys tried to keep him still but In
spite of them all he managed once to give
Lultwleler the He and wanted tn say more.
It developed that under the contract the
plaintiff had sold th* gas to a man named
Bonk and it was not until this took place
that Hedley objected. The court has th'
matter under advisement.
Harold L. Murphy, a slender and repent
ant lad of 12, was yesterday imprisoned lr.

He acknowledges that he stole a purse con
taining seven or eight dollars and the prop
erty of Miss H. M. Young of Pasadena. A
