The JVeto Courthouse 3>ot Approved by
SANTA CRUZ, Cal., Oct. 26.— Thomas
Beck, superintendent of construction,
under appointment by the Board of Super
visors, has communicated to R. M. Mc-
Cabe, contractor for the new Courthouse,
that some of the work is not in accordance
with the specilications.
One of these defects is the improper po
sition of the opening in the basement.
Another is the omission of half-joists in
the lower floor of the Courthouse.
The ihird complaint is the placing of
several of the iioor beams on small brick
piers built in the basement openings.
"This mode of construction/ the super
intendent says, "is shoddy to the last de
gree, and is not only unsightly, but is
un-afe and in every way unworkmanlike. "
Mr. Beck read the communication at a
meeting of the board to-day, and .Mr. Mo

The matter will be considered further at a
meeting on Monday.

This company has had the advantage of
the Valley road people in the matter of

done at this end and no heavy or difficult

That the company intends to haul all
kinds of freight to and from the west side
is now generally understood, but notwith
standing this it is distinctively a coal road,
for it is but a means to an end in the de
velopment of the mountain? of wealth

An Able Discussion of the Evo
lution of the Moral
Professor W. H. Hudson of Stanford
University lectured before the Charming
Auxiliary of tne First Unitarian Church
last evening, the subject being "Tho Evo
lution of the Moral Sanction."
The lecture dealt with two separate
though closely connected questions, the
nature of the moral sanction, properly so
called, and the revolution of this moral
sanction out of other sanction? for conduct
which have preceded it in a slow develop
ment of the race, and with which it is
still frequently confused.
"Our consideration of these subjects
must necessarily be brief and superficial,"
said Professor Hudson, "since they lead
us everywhere to the verge of important
issues in ethical theory, which ought,
strictly speaking, to form a feature of this
discussion, but which we must here pass
over without a word.
"In our everyday speech the phraseology
of morality is cuYrently emplojed, when
upon analysis we discover that no judg
ment that we should describe as moral is

such words as 'ought' and 'duty.' words
which taken upon our lips a dozen times

would think of connecting with ethical

hypnotism plays a part.
Startling Charges of Suborna
tion of Perjury and Crimi
As sensational a case and one involving
as important interests as any ever tried in
this State has been on hearing before
United States Commissioner Heacock for
the past two days.
The issue involved is the right to patent
on the present method of electric lighting
by the well-known alternating current sys
tem, and millions of dollars are at stake.
In the exciting proceedings of the past
two days there has developed one
of the most remarkable stories of
fraudulent conspiracy in which four broth
ers were pitted against one; charges of
perjury and subornation of perjury; a ser
ious street right in front of the* Palace
Hotel, which was barely prevented from
be ins: a fracas with pistol accompaniment;
deadly threats by one brother against
another; the disarming of an attorney
and his client by Marshal Baldwin in the
rooms of Commissioner Heacock, with a
subsequent apology by the attorney, and
an intimation of hypnotic influence hay-
ing been exercised to secure certain testi
The case is that of Walter K. Freeman
vs. the Westinghouse Electric Company of
Pittsburg et al., brought in the Federal
court at Washington, D. C, in which the
plaintiff seeks to establish his claim to
being the inventor of the alternating cur
rent for electric lighting. The plaintiff
has already won a number of similar suits,
among the defendants having been Thom
as A. Edison and Karl Zifernowsky, the
world-renowned electrician of Austria.
Issue in the pending case was joined in
1838, and for several years testimony has
been gathered in behalf of Freeman, whose
case in chief was closed about two months
ago. Just prior to that time, according to
Mr. Freeman's statement last night, the
attorneys for the Westinghouse Electric
Company acknowledged virtually that the
case as it then stood was impregnable.
It then remained for the defendants to
put in their testimony. The case being a
patent case and before a Federal court the
hearing could be heard before any Federal
tribunal and, as Mr. Freeman phrased it,
the defendants had the venue changed to
the court farthest removed from the scene
of the original proceedings, believing that
the plaintiff would by reason of lack of
means be unable to make an appearance
or be represented by an attorney. Notice
of this change was not served on Mr. Free
man until the 17th of October and by mak
ing all haste he was enabled to reach this
City, with Attorney J. B. Church of Wash
ington, D. C, his counsel, on the 23d, just
twenty-four hours before the matter was
to be heard before United States Commis
sioner Heacock. Their appearance on the
scene was so great a surprise to the de
fendant's attorney, H. 8. Mackaye of the
well-known New York law firm of Terry,
Duncan <fe Mackaye, and bo disconcerted
him apparently that a continuance of the
case was asked until the 25th, which was
Wnen the case was opened on Friday,
Wallace E. Freeman was called by de
fendant's attorney as a witness. Counsel
for Freeman then made the following sen
I desire at this point to enter an objection to
the taking of the testimony of the witness, on
the ground that ne has been brought from his
home In New York City to this City and pro
cured, by bribery and under false pretensions
and false representations as to his responsibil
ity in the matter, for the purpose of testifying
in this case, and with the understanding that
being removed from the jurisdiction in which
he gave his formor testimony to the present
jurisdiction, he would be relieved from liabil
ity under the statute governing the crime of
Counsel for Freeman further stated that
a conspiracy was originated and was par
ticipated in by H. S. Mackaye, alias Wil
liam A. Steele, counsel for the Westir.e
house Electric Company, and Warren P.
Freeman, a brother of the plaintiff, and
that both or one of them procured from
witness while he was in a state of intoxi
cation an affidavit which has been used to
influence the witness in the subsequent
Counsel further stated that in pursuance
of their conspiracy the said H. S. Mackaye
did, in conjunction with Warren P. Free
man, enter into an agreement to procure
the assistance of Wallace E. Freeman and
others to enter Into an agreement for the
formation of a company, for which com
pany the said H. S. Mackaye, alias Wil
liam A. Steele, agreed to furnish a large
Bum of money, viz. $100,000 in cash, and
to pay large sums to witness, it being
agreed between the parties that the forma
tion of the company and the payment of
the sums of money were but a cloak to
cover the payment of moneys for the pur
pose of procuring false testimony from
witnesses. Attorney Church continued :
Pursuant to said conspiracy the witnesses
about to be examined were induced to come
from New York to this City under the impres
sion that they were to obtain lucrative em
ployment, and that when thus brought to
gether they were for the first time informed
that they must testify in the present proceed
ings according to a prearranged plan, and that
neither the plaintiff nor his counsel would be
When plaintiff arrived at Oakland, Cal., on
his way to this City he was met by two of the
witnesses cited to appear here, and the nature
and extent of the conspiracy and the deception
practiced upon the witnesses was then for the
first time disclosed and called to the attention
of the counsel for Freeman.
These witnesses, A. H. and M. L. Free
man, who had formerly testified in behalf
of W. K. Freeman, requested advice from
plaintiff's counsel as to the proper course
for them to pursue, but he declined to ad
vise them and referred them to John A.
Boone of San Francisco.
Wallace E. Freeman was then placed
under oath as a witness for the defense.
He testified that about the 15th of Septem
ber he met Mr. Alackaye in Long Island
City, New York, and that he made a con
tract with the attorneys of the Westing
house Electric Company to proceed to Cali
fornia and for a nominal consideration
endeavor to get the witnesses who had
previously testified in benalf of W. K. Free
man to so change their testimony as to aid
the Westinghouse Electric Company in
destroying the value of their testimony.
Witness" then described how this was
done by Mackaye representing himself to
be William A. Steele, the well-known cap
italist of San Francisco, and agreeing to
furnish $100,000 to establish and operate a
rubber goods factory in San Francisco and
take A. H. Freeman of Riverside and M«
L. Freeman into partnership if they would
make affidavits in the case under discus
sion which would benefit the cause of the
defendant. The affidavits were duly made,
the witness testified, but the discovery as
to who Mackaye really was was not made
until shortly before the hearing in this
City was begun. He also testified that
Warren P. Freeman was an active worker
against tlie interests of the plaintiff.
This ended the testimony for the day,
but in the evening another exciting chap
ter was addod to this extraordinary case.
While Attorney Church, Walter K. Free
man, the plaintiff, and A. H. Fieeman
were standing in front of the Palace Hotel,
Warren P. Freeman came along and A. H.
Freeman asked him where his tool, Wal
lace E. Freeman, was.
This led to criminations and recrimina
tions, and finally Alexander H. Freeman
struck Warren P. a heavy blow with his
fist. Warren then kicked him in the
groin. At this point Walter attempted to
drag Alexander away, but seeing Warren
reaching for his pistol jumped for him and
prevented him from using it. Warren,
however, threatened to kill Alexander be
fore the latter left California. Alexander
was bo badly injured that he is unable to
When the case was called yesterday
morning Attorney Church stated tnat he
had reason to believe that both Attorney
Mackaye and Warren P. Freeman had
come armed into court with intent to com
mit assault on W. K. Freeman and his at
torney. Both men were found to be
armed and, though Mackaye afterward
apologized, the matter is not yet ended, as
it will be referred to United States Circuit
In the course of his testimony yesterday

A Panoche Gentleman Has Secured
Something Which lie Wants
Is In No Humor to Take as Much
as $500 for Something that Is
at Times Neglected.
In the San Benito Valley there is a
most picturesque little place, which is cele-
brated for the excellence of its crops, and
the sturdy character of its native sons.
One of the good families of the place is that
of the Ashursts, the boys being well
known for their straightforwardness and
manly bearing. Indeed, in that region
there is no one more respected. Some
little while ago, however, one of them
(Robert) began to appreciate that all was
not well with him. He did not pay mucti
attention to the growing weakness that he
felt, thinking that it was only a passing
ailment. But here was where he made a
serious blunder. As his disease progressed
he began to realize that he was indeed ill.
He tried all that he could do to shak» off
the attack, using all the remedies that he
knew of for that purpose, but still it kept
getting more and more firmly implanted
in his system. Almost on the verge of
giving up, he wrote to the Hudson Medical
Institute— great institution for the
cure of the sick— and he at once got a letter
telling him that he need not despair. And
now, after having heen under the skill of
the specialists there for a couple of weeks —
just fancy it, only a fortnight— he has been
done so much good that he frankly says
that he would not be where he was just
those few days ago for five hundred dollars. ■
Here. is a letter that he nas seen fit to write
to the management of the great institute:
Panoche, Cal., August 13. 1895.
Hudson Medical Institute, San Francisco,
Cal.— Gentlemen: I reply in pursuance to
your requests. I have been taking your medi-
cines for about two weeks and am greatly
pleased with the results. Am no longer trou-
bled with headache, backache or aeep pains.
My eyesight is very much better, blood does
not rush to my head as it used to and as a con-
sequence my intellect is brighter ar.d brain
clearer. Have gained six pounds since com-
mencing treatment. My bowels do not yet
move as regularly as they should, but 1 take a
tablet every night, and that may be all risrhtin
time. I realize that it takes time to efi'ect a
cure. Honestly, gentlemen, I would not take
$500 to relapse into the state I was in Defore I
applied to you. I remain yours respectfully,
Robert Ashurst Jr.
Now, that is the letter of a highly re-
spected and intelligent young man, and it
shows most conclusively how remarkably
efficient and rapid in its work the treat-
ment of the specialists of the "greatest of
all curative establishments on this con-
tinent" is. But Mr. Ashurst is by no
means alone in his high opinion of what
is being regularly done for suffering hu-

am feeling so good now that if 1 felt any better
1 could jump out of my skin."
