Judge Van Kcynegoni and Patrick Reddy

the air look smoky for a few minutes. A

case, now on trial, and the ex-Senator was
crowding him hard to the wall in a way

Finally the Judge stopped proceedings and
*>o!d Mr. Keddy in hastily chosen words that
sftrft manner of conducting his case wcuid
not'be tolerated any longer, and that he
must employ respectable methods or suffer
the penalty of hi? acts.
The word "respectable" was not the one
[ihe Judge real!] meant to use, hut it fell
like a spark In a magazine, and the inevit
able explosion followed. Mr. Keddy jumped
no and fairly bottled. The windows actually
trembled while in- was thundering to the
Judge bis sentiments about respectability.
It look loss than ten seconds for every one
in that court-loom and all surrounding
ones to find out that Mr. Keddy considered
himself Quite as decent and respectable as
Judge Van Feynegoin, or any otner Judge,
lie did not propose to be Insulted in that
way, and the Judge or any one else that did

It was Judge Van Keyn.gom's turn now

died down almost as suddenly as it rose.

Native Sons Award Colors to

THAT SEA-WALL COSTJRACT.
Failure of Owens Ilrotherr. to Secure
Sureties on Their Bond.
F. J. and J. K. Owens, who secured a few
days ago the contract for the construction of
Section IJ of the sea-wall for $93,320. are
haying a hard time, in finding bondsmen.
The bond required is $30,000, and they were
given until Saturday to procure sureties,
aud this time lias been extended until
Monday next. S_S
On Thursday the Owens Brothers ap
peared before the Harbor Commissioners
with sureties, who were verbally examined.
Amour; them was Richard McCann; the con
tractor, who was accepted as a surety for
§10,000, but yesterday notified the Commis
sioners that he had withdrawn Irom the
bond, and would refuse to qualify.
The Commissioners again met yesterday,
ani the Owens Brothers were represented
by Andrew J. Clunie. There appeared to
be a reluctance on the part of the Commis
sioners to accept the bondsmen of Owens.
The sureties who had testified on the day
before were not all accepted. The Commis
sioners had sent out to the New City Hall
and ascertained the amounts or which they
in one c.rse a man named -ikclly had quali
fied for $5000 and be was only represented
by $1400 on the assessment roll, In cases
where the sureties had only $10,000 worth of
petty and had families or homestead In
cumbrances the Commissioners refused to
accept the sureties, except for small
amounts. Clunie claimed that Owens had
to obtain sureties for $30,000, while the Com
missioners hold that he must have sureties
for double that amount. A number of the
sureties presented by Owens Brothers have
As Commissioner English said: "We
must be careful about this thing, and have
only responsible men on the bond, for the
contract price is a very low one and we
must be over cautious."
In regard to McCann's withdrawal from
the bond, Attorney Clunie showed the
board a telegram signed by McMullin of the
San Francisco bridge Company asking Mc-
Cann to come at once to his office, as he
wanted to see hint on important business.
The San Francisco Bridge Company is the
next lowest bidder for the contract, and on
the following day McCann withdrew from
Owens' side claim that the extra care of
the Commissioners and the stumbling blocks
put in their wav is all the part ot a plot to
prevent them from presenting their bond in
lime, and thus throwing lie contract to the
next lowest bidder, who is a rich man and
can easily secure sureties at a minute's
notice. - .-■';*,"

tify me in holding or acquitting the defend

mony was given by the prosecution, and
Marriott was held in bonds of t'-'IAK) to ap
pear for trial in the Superior Court. lie is
accused by Superior Judge I). J. Murphy
with having published a libelous article on
his lienor in connection with "Little Pete."
Judge Murphy was present with his coun
sel, ex-Judge C. B. Darwin. ;■*.'••*■_
Paul Desmond, clerk in Judge Murphy's
court, testified regarding his connection with
the Superior tribunals, but what he had to
say was of a technical nature.
Detective Hubert Hogan testified regard
ing his connection witn the "Little Lete"
case, when he seized the singular papers,
whicli have never been satisfactorily ac
counted for, in the Chinese safe hi a room m
Chinatown nearly three years ago. He
stated that the papers contained entiiesof
money paid to various public officials as
"presents" from "Chris" Buckley dowu to
petty otlicers. On the list there was no
entry of a Sl'-uO present to Judge Murphy.
Judge Murphy then took the stand
anxious to make a statement
" What in the world induced you to take
money from 'Little Pete' in this case."
asked his attorney.
" Well. 1 did not take any money from
Little Pete, and nothing induced me to do
it," sternly replied tiie Judge, his voice sug
gesting an excited state of iiiind. " 1 never
spoke to 'Little Pete,' and lie never spoke
to me about the casu while it was on trial,
or at any time, and no one else ever spoke
to me about it. Iliad in communication in
any way, shape or form with ' Little Pete,'
or anybody in bis behalf, and I had no inter
ference wiih that case at all." '
"Have you observed a communication en
titled 'Little Pete and .Murphy,' in a weekly
paper ou August 30th?"
"1 have read it."
"Is it true?"
"It is not true in any particular excepting
the fact that it speaks of me as a Judge. As
to anything reflecting on mc as a man or as
an official there is not one word of truth In
it. 1 have never bad anything to do, di
rectly or indirectly, with 'Littlo Pete' at
either of his trials, or with anybody in his
behalf. 1 never received Sl or Sl_o., or
any other sum in that case, nor in any other

Enormous Increase in Earnings. ■- _? ".. ...
The statement of the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe Railroad Company for the
year ending June 30, ISO), has just been
made public. In view of the recent rumors
that this system would extend its line from
Mojave to this city, and the many-argu
ments i übllshed against the probability of
Mich a scheme on account of the financial
condition of the Sauta Fo Company, tho
following figures taken from the report may
provo interesting. They show a remarkable
and encouraging increase in gross earning - ,
and still more so in net earnings, compared
with the record of the previous year: . ■:-•_

The fact that while the gross earnings of
the entire system, with practically no in
crease in mileage, increased $3,893,-18 in the
year, aud tho net earnings 53.952.144 is
certainly very notable. Such a record has
no precedent In the history of railroading.

pay the 4 per cent interest required on its

can also pay about l\f, per cent on the SSO,

effect of abolishing commissions is a ques

Some say "yea," others "nay," and when
asked for his opinion of the argument; one
of the general agents said yesterday: "It's
the proper caper and the best thing yet."
The ageut doing business n»xt door had a
different opinion, as follows : "It is the very

The Committee of Filteen from the Bro-,

of cheating Henry Walters in a transfer of
property In Oakland.
Attorney XV. W. Foote appeared for the
defense, and claim -t* in his motion that no
offense had been committed, as Walters bad
not relied on Sir no's word in the transaction
and consequently there were no false pre
tenses. A lenglliy argument was made by
the other side against this opinion, and
various authority s were limited by the
prosecution to sustain its views.
The defense likewise introduced numerous
authorities, claiming that a precedent had
been established in the ease, and that under
the Slate laws btriue was not guilty of the

Strine owned thirty-one acres of land in
the Peralta Tract, Brooklyn, and last May
transferred it to Wallers in exchange for a
ranch and personal property in Fresno
County. Tho day previous be had a trans
cript of title made by a reputable firm of
searchers, and subsequently got a second
mortgage, of $9*-_0 on the property. The
title, upon examination by Walters, appeared
correct (as it really was for its date).
Walters testified that he did not accept tlio
word of Strine, but had the title examined,
nnd on this statement the defense claims
that there was no pretense whatever made
In the transaction. "All that could be said
of the case," said the defendant's counsel,
