Lillian Ashley After Mr.
HEAVY DAMAGES DEMANDED.
Peculiar Allegations Made by a
MILLIONAIRE'S SHARP REPLY.
Says the Plaintiff Is Ugly and That
Her Story Is Simply for
Los Angeles, May B.— Miss Lillian A
Ashley has brought suit against E. J.
Baldwin, the San Francisco millionaire,
for damages in the sum of 575.000. In her
complaint she alleges that in the mouth of
March, 1893, by means of artful aud false
promises he succeeded in inducing her to
assume illicit relations with bim, and that
subsequently she became a mother, and
prays that damages be awarded her in the
It is learned that one day last December
a woman who gave the name of Ashley
called at a house on South Olive street to
secure rooms for herself and a young man
who accompanied her and who, she sa d,
was her brother. Two rooms were assigned
to them, and the landlady saw nothing
more of them for ten days, when they sig
nified their intention of giving up one of
them and occupying the other.
The landlady saw that they were in
straitened circumstances and | they were
given to understand that they were not
wanted about the house, but they begged
that they be allowed to remain longer and
no further attention was paid to them
until a few days after, when a baby girl
was born. Tbe brother continued to re
main in the same room during the illness
of bis sister.
To these about her Miss Ashley said
that the father of her child was a wealthy
man in Boston, who had sent her here at
bis expense. Since her arrival she said
she had received £2000 from the uukoown
"When the baby was born she sent in
telligence of the fact to bim, but he re
fused to believe the story, and to satisfy
himself he sent a detective here, who suc
ceeded in confirming the news of the
baby's arrival. The physician's birth
certificate at the Health Office was a con
tradiction to the woman's previous stories
concerning the child's parentage, as she
gave the baby the name of Beatrice Bald
win and named its father E. J. Baldwin.
Mm Ashley, after receiving her money
from Boston, ceased to refer to the un
known man in that city, and often spoke
of her intention to sue "Lucky" Baldwin
for £200.000 damages, claiming that she
bad visited Coronadowith the well-known
It is understood that the $2000 which she
received was invested in a residence in
E. J. Baldwin, in speaking of the suit
brought by Miss Lillian A. Ashley, said
last night tbat ii was a case of blackmail.
He was so ungallant to remark that the
plaintiff was "old and homely," and that
any one who knew her would not credit
the charge made against him. He also
declared that be bad been advised more
than a year ago that an attempt would be
made to blackmail bim in a suit such as
that Just filed in Los Angeles, and added:
"I want the suit to go on. They think
they have an easy game in me, but I will
show them bow to fight. 1 will gamble
that she will never recover a dollar from
me. The charge 13 without any founda
H. 1. Kowalsky, the attorney, with whom
Mr. Baldwin had been discussing the suit,
was present and laughingly remarked:
"Mr. Baldwin is going to show Colonel
Breckinridge of Kentucky how to fight a
case of this kind. Seriously speaking
there is no foundation for the suit. It is a
case of blackmail. We have proof tbat
this woman blackmailed a wealthy man in
Boston, and shall produce the evidence. It
is a conspiracy on the part of several per
sons in the southern portion of the State,
who have urged this woman to bring the

Big Cut in Freight Rates Out of
Chicago, May 8. — The lines in the
Western Freight Association went at tbe
rates to-day with an ax, and by the time
they bad finished their work theie was not
much ie 1 1 of the schedule formerly in
fotce between Chicago and the Missouri
River and betweeu tbe Mississippi and
Missouri rivers. The freight rates of all
classes were cut squarely in half, the re
duction being £0 per cent of the rates in
The cause for the reduction is said to be
the Missouri Pacific road, which some
time ago declined to enter the agreement
of the other lines to maintain rates, and
which has, it is asserted, been cutting
rates without regard to the tariff in effect
on the lines of the Western Freight Asso
ciation. The present reductions are made
with the object of bringing the Missouri
Pacific to time and compelling it to main
The rates put in after to-day apply not
only between Chicago and the, Missouri
River but from ail points on the Missis
sippi River to all points on the Missouri
River as well.
Chair Caldwell of the Western Pas
senger Association lias called a meeting of
the association for to-morrow to see what
can be done with tbe present rate troubles
in his territory. The general opinion,
even among the best friends of the West
ern Passenger Association, is that nothing
can save it but a thorough reorganization

Naturally Railroad Men Look Upon
It With Favor.
Washington. May B.— The sixth annual
convention of State Railroad Commission
ers met to-day at the rooms of the Inter
state Commerce Commission. There was
quite a representative gathering, as State
officers charged with any duty in the
supervision of railroad . affairs are entitled
to seats in the convention. Mr. J. H. Pad
dock of Illinois called the convention to
order, and Mr. Woodruff of Connecticut
was elected chairman.
The most important feature of the day's
proceedings was the presentation, of the
maiority and minority reports of the com
mittee appointed at the last convention to
make "a report on pooling of j freights" and
division of earnings. The majority re
port favors the repeal of section^ 5; of the
interstate "commerce' act, which . prohibits
pooling. Mr. Becker. In his minority re
port, says section 5 should not he re
pealed. The proposition to allow com
teting roads to divide between them net
proceeds of their earnings i-, he asserted,
nothing but an effort to create under the
forms of taw a gigantic railroad trust.
HOW ABOUT BRUTALITY
Changes Proposed in the Rules for
New York, May B.— The rules com
mittee appointed last November to make
rules governing the playing of football
met to-night in the University Athletic
Clubrooms and adopted a set of rules that
will hereafter govern the game. Walter
Camp of Yale was chairman of the com
mittee. Among the changes proposed by
the committee and adopted by the Uni
versity club are the following :
In rule 1, section "E," a punt is made a
kick-out, with the drop kick and place
In rule 6 the words "without touching
the dress or person of player after the
kick," are omitted in regard to the obtain
ing of a goal.
Rule 8 makes the use of a signal neces
sary by the man intending to make a fair
catch before that counts as such.
Rule 15 provides for the duty of the um
pire, referee and lineman, making the um
pire's decision in foul and fair tactics final,
or of referring to both referee and lineman
if he so desires. All catching along the
line is prohibited. The lineman will keep
time, who is under the direction of the
referee. Only one official representative
for each side shall be permitted on the
fie 1 in esse of accident to a player.
Rule 16 changes the playing time from 45
minutes to 35 minutes for each half.

New York, May B.— The Herald's Mon
tevideo dispatch says: The address of
President Peixoto at the opening of the
Brazil Congress to-day dealt severely with
Portugal for the course followed with the
officers of the insurgent fleet after their sur
rendering Rio Janeiro Bay.
After relating the history of the revo
lution, the President's message said that
Brazil enjoyed friendly relations with all
the world except Portugal, and the strained
relations with that country were due to
the abuse of the rights of asylum by Cap
tain Castilbo of the Mindello.
Portugal was responsible for Captain
Castilhu'B course, the President declared,
and in permitting the escape of the fugi
tives to other than Portuguese territory he
had committed an act of hostility toward
Brazil. Brazil would pursue the question,
he asserted, and push the matter to a sat

Subsequent investigation showed that
she never took any stage at that point.
Decker claimed that she eloped with an
other man, and showed letters that went
to show that she was with the man some
where in the East.
The matter was then hushed up, yet
many people were not well satisfied and
have always claimed that Decker made

to have, in a measure, established these

PUBLIC - PRINTING OFFICE.
The House Considers the Selection
of a Site.
Washington. May B.— The bill for the
erection i/f a public printing office in
Washington occupied the House during
the greater part of the day and came to a
rather ignominious end. A number of
amendments and substitutes were offered
to the first section, providing for the pur
chase of « site, but the only thing which
finally came out of the melee was a re.o
ution by Holman to refer the question to
a commission, to consist of the Committee
on Public Buildings and Grounds, with
instructions to select a site on ground now
owned by the Government.
The naval appropriation bill was called
up and briefly explained in some of its
parts by Mr. Cummings, but the House
adjourned at 5:05 o'clock, before he had
concluded hi. remarks.

O'Hare, the Coroner's physician, who
made the autopsy on Brandt's body, in the
witness chair for cross-examination. Dr.
OH.re described a very much emaciated
and badly decomposed body— so much so
that be supposed it was valueless for the
purposes of pathology. The brain was
almost fluid, and the organs were in a
very bad st>«te of preservation.
Mr. McAlpine, who made a micro
scopical examination of the organs, testi
fied that, owing to the advanced state nf
decomposition, tbe examination was
mainly of a negative character.
Dr. Charles A. Doremus testified to find
ing arsenic and antimony in the remains.

.The Mountain . Sheep of California.
Editor Call -Sm: Section 626 of the Penal
Code of California says:
Every person wb ■ sball at any time ln the State
of California , bunt, pursue, take, kill or destroy
any antelope, elk, mountain sbeep. female deer or
does, snail be guilty of a misdemeanor.
So strong are ttte provisions of this very
proper law that the animals mentioned are not
even to be molested. It may be well for per
sons to hesitate before . repeating the deed of
the amateur hunter as set forth la last Sunday's
Call, as they may place themselves iv a posi
tion amenable to prosecution by the Officers
whose sworn duty is to see that this law is
strictly enforced. I trust that the Interior press
will call attention to this law. H. F. C.
