He Snubs the Board of
And Coolly Ignores Their Re
quest for His Resignation.
The Justice Does Not Mind Their
What Is Likely to Happen if He Should
Persist in Forcing Himself Upon the
Yesterday afternoon while the board
of supervisors was in session Justice
Lockwood popped into the room, thrust
a paper into Chairman Perry's hand,
saying in an off-hand way, "A communi
cation, sir;" and the justice then disap
peared as fast as he had arrived.
Clerk Blake gave a lecture to the board
of Lockwood's communication,which was
Los Angeles, Cal., July 30, 1890.
To the Honorable Board of Supervisors of
Los Angeles, Cal.:
Gentlemen—l have this day received
a notice from your clerk of the passage
by your honorable body of the following
"Be it resolved, That we hereby ask of
Mr. Lockwood that he forthwith resign
his office of justice of the peace."
You preface that resolution by the fol
"Whereas, Justice of the Peace W. C.
Lockwood has been arrested upon a
criminal charge amounting to a felony ;
"Whereas, From his own admission it
appears that he has violated in a serious
degree the law he has sworn to uphold;
"Where as, The attempt to preside over
and administer the laws, civil or crim
inal, by an officer who is himself so man
ifestly involved in the violation of our
laws, seems to us contemptuous of law
and an indecent indignity to the
The law has provided a remedy for
such a condition of affairs as you enum
erate in your first charges. I do not
find in such law any clause vesting in
your honorable body authority to make
such a request.
In your third "whereas" you make no
charge, but enunciate a sentiment to
which I can heartily subscribe, and here
let me suggest to your honorable body
that I have not done nor have I had any
intention of doing anything inconsistent
with that sentiment.
I therefore understand your commu
nication to be the formal and unofficial
opinion of five gentlemen, who have
publicly condemned a man upon rumor,
and without a hearing, and as such it
shall receive my consideration.
W. C. Lockwood.
Upon motion of Supervisor Martin
the communication was placed on file.
It is stated that an effort will be made
to have Justice Lockwood's official acts
investigated by filing a complaint in the
superior court under section 771 of the
penal code, which provides ior the man
ner of removal of certain officers not
liable to impeachment. The rumor has
not as yet taken a very substantial
shape, but it is very probable that the
action spoken of will be taken.
Justice Lockwood on Tuesday stated
in court that the press was manufactur
ing unfavorable public sentiment against
him, but that the citizens were in a
large majority favorable to him. A
Herald reporter yesterday very impar
tially inquired into the sentiment of the
people of this city respecting that asser
tion, and is bound to say that Justice
Lockwood was not justified in making
snch a statement. While some persons
take it for granted that he could hardly
refuse his particular friend a harbor of
refuge, even if the crimes alleged against
Damron are at all true, the greater
number seem to believe that, as an offi
cer of the law, such loyalty to a fugitive
from justice, though he was his friend,
Bhows a want of legal sense which dis
qualifies him as a dispenser of justice
Today at.lo o'clock the examination
of Mr. Lockwood will be commenced in
the township justice's court, and Justice
Savage expressed his determination not
to accept any further pleas for the pur
pose of extending the time of the de
fendant's preliminary examination.
HENRY, WILLIE AND HERMAN
Tire of Traveling and Try to Get
While collecting tickets on the train
from Santa Monica yesterday morning,
Conductor John P. Bassett discovered
three juvenile stowaways on one of the
cars. They were taken into the baggage
car and questioned, when it was learned
that their names and ages were, respect
ively, Henry Lawler, 10; Willie Lundy,
7, and Herman "Dutchy," also 7. The
two younger boys stated that Lawler
had induced them to accompany him to
the beach on Tuesday morning, and act
ing under his guidance they had boarded
the noon train, and successfully eluding
the eagle eye of the ticket-puncher,
reached Santa Monica without trouble.
After wandering about the beach all da>
they concluded to return home, but
found that there was no train, the last
having left at 3:45 o'clock. Hungry
and tired, they wandered about until
dark, when a good Samaritan
took them into his tent and gave them
fiupper and blankets. They left their
harbor of refuge early yesterday morn
ing, however, without waiting for break
fast, as they feared that they might be
turned over to the officers, and watched
for an opportunity to slip into one of the
cars of the first train. In this, however,
they were disappointed, as the trainmen
were moving up and down in the cars ;
and they were forced to wait until the
train returned at 10:30 o'clock, when
they slipped on board unnoticed.
Mr. Bassett having seen an item in
the Herald regarding the disappearance
of Willie Luljdy, turned the trio over to
BaggagemarrTJack Manning, who, after
reading the boys a lectureanent running
away from home, made them happy in
his genial way, until they arrived at' the
Arcade depot, when they were taken to
the police station to await the arrival of

charging her with the murder of his
wife. The warrant was issued by Jus
At 11 o'clock Miss Latta, who had
been confined in the county jail during
the night, was brought before the town
ship justice for arraignment, Henry T.
Gage acting as her counsel. She was
extremely cool and self-possessed. The
prisoner, who is somewhat deaf, re
quested to read the complaint herselt.
She had nothing to say in reference to
the matter. Justice Savage set her ex
amination for 10 o'clock tomorrow, and
remanded her to jail without bail.
A GOOD POLICY
To Be Followed by the Democratic
The executive committee of the Dem
ocratic Alliance met yesterday afternoon
in the Downey block for the purpose of
making the necessary arrangements for
fitting up their new quarters. Dr.
Joseph Kurtz called the meeting to
order, and stated that the intention of
the executive committee was to see that
the club was thoroughly organized and
that the class of Democrats who were
members of the alliance would take an
active hand in the coming contests, and
that there should not be any of the dis
graceful scenes enacted again that were
so apparent at the recent primaries.
Ex-Mayor W. H. Workman also said
that it was high time that such prac
tices were sat down upon. A repetition
of such outrages would be fatal to the
success of the Democratic party
in this city and county. He
felt, however, that the material
which composed the Democratic
Alliance would be strong enough to ef
fectually stamp out such disgraceful
practices in the future, and place the
party and its standard-bearers in a
strong position before the public.
Acting Secretary E. C. Taylor re
ported a little over $400 on hand and
about as much again standing out
which could be collected readily when
the club was in good working order.
On motion of John P. Moran the fit
ting-up of the quarters were left to
Hon. W. H. Workman, Dr. Joseph
Kurtz and G. E. Dickson. It was de
cided to have a meeting next Wednes
day evening, and at that time the regu
lar meeting night of the club will be

A Little Sketch of the His
tory of the Industry.
Mr. Chas. Stern's Reminiscences
Since the Year 1854,
The Old Days When the Mission Was
the Only Wine in the Section.
An Interesting Tale Concerning a Pe
riod of Nearly Forty Years in
In this age of progress in all things
material, it is at times highly interest
ing to look back into the past, so as to
trace the march of cause and effect and
thereby endeavor to predict the out
come of the future ; and when such retro
spection falls upon a line of industrial
pursuits, whose past has been such as
to augur a prosperous future, then the
mind loves to linger over such in fond
Among the many paths of industry
that arc of a progressive nature, per
haps none can offer such satisfaction to
the observer of events as the growth and
expansion of wine-making in California,
an industry which, scarcely known forty
years ago, has already assumed national
importance and whose future is destined
to be most brilliant.
The origin of this, the most noble of all
professions, lies with those old devout
Spanish missionaries, who, in times long
by-gone, dotted the coast of the Pacific
with a chain of missions of which noth
ing is left today except a mass of crum
bling ruins, which serve as evidence of
their antiquity. While the missionaries
were zealous defenders of the faith and
were constantly in arms to defend and
advance the causes of the church and
matters spiritual, they nevertheless
were keenly alive to matters temporal,
and guided by the scriptures, they fol
lowed the hint given to Noah by an all
wise Creator, and left to the new world
an heritage more lasting than monu
ments of stone and iron, and which will
exist as long as thirsty humanity.
And right here may be added paren
thetically, and it speaks well for their
judgment of soil and climate, that the
grape they introduced and named in
their honor —the "Mission"—has never
been surpassed by any of the hundreds
of varieties subsequently imported into
the state of California in the endeavors
of enterprising vignerons to excel in the
quality of their productions.
In the old days the vineyards were
few in number and quite modest in pro
portion, and were only to be found in
the immediate vicinage of the mission
chapel,for their product was consecrated
to the church, and, being of sacred ori
gin, it is not difficult for the faithful to
believe that these worthy toilers in the
vineyard of the Lord found in its pro
duct the necessary "inspiration" with
which to replace their wasted energies ;
and it is also worthy of belief that be
fore raising the flowing bowl to their
lips they devoutly made the sign of the
cross and muttered silently a short
prayer of thanks.
Under the watchful care and guidance
of these old pad res there soon made itself
felt an air of quiet prosperity and happi
ness. Every chapel boasted of its thriv
ing little village, whose inhabitants were
skilled in pastoral pursuits of various
kinds, and writers of the times often
spoke in terms of highest praise of this
glorious country and the truly Arcadian
existence of its inhabitants.
But matters were destined to change.
The war with Mexico was followed by
the annexation of California to the
United States of America, and the old
inhabitants, who up to that time had
lived in peace and tranquility, suddenly
found themselves confronted with the
hardships of war and strife.
That these circumstances altered en
tirely the character of the people needs
only passing mention. Many of them—
notably the oldest ones—followed the old
padres back into Mexico; others fell in
defense of their rights and property, but
by far the great majority adapted them
selves to the changed conditions and
began anew those pursuits which they
had been taught of old.
In the wake of the war followed many
of an adventuresome turn of mind, who,
either enchanted with the natural beau
ties and wonderful climate of the coun
try, or owing to accident and reverses,
determined upon settling in the new
country, and eventually became large
land-owners. Subsequently the discov
ery of gold sent a vast army of fortune
hunters into the state, who spared
no nook or corner in their search
for wealth and treasure, and when tin
successful in the mines they too fol
lowed the example of their predecessors
and turned their attention to agricul
tural pursuits, for which the country
was admirably adapted, owing to a soil
of wondrous fertility and a climate of
marvelous perfection, two things which
still exist today to charm the eye and
gladden the heart of the modern tourist.
In common with other pastoral pur
suits viticulture made commendable
progress, and the year 1850 saw a large
part of what is now the city of Los Ange
les in a state of the highest cultivation,
evenly divided between oranges and
Of the thousands who found their way
to California was the founder of the
present Arm of Charles Stern & Sons,
whose name was destined to become in
separably linked with that of California.
A German by birth and wine-maker
and merchant by profession, on arrival
in California he was naturally directed
to the possibilities of the new country
in that line.
About 1854, Mr. Charles Stern came
to Los Angeles. The Messrs. Koehler it
Froehling were about to go into business
in this city as makers of wines and
brandies from the native grapes. Mr.
Stern entered the service of this firm,
and during the following five years de
voted all his energies with the enthusi
asm of a devotee to the task of learning
the mysteries of wine-curing and dis
tilling. He took every pains to post his
mind with all the intricacies of the busi
ness, and at the same time devoted
much attention to studying the possi
bilities of the industry in'this section in
the line of wine and brandy-making. At
the end of these five years of practical
study, Mr. Stern proceeded to San Fran
cisco, where he formed apartnership with
Richard F. Perkins, then postmaster of
San Francisco, and in November, 185 it he
went on to New York, accompanied' by
Samuel C. Perkins, son of the above.
The firm of Perkins, Son & Co. was duly
formed and became the pioneer concern
in introducing California wines and
brandies in the eastern markets.
At that time there was no wine in tlxU
ate excepting the Mission variety in
troduced by the Mission fathers when
they came from Spain by way of Mexico.
The varieties of wine were of course very
limited, and very little of the product
of this state waß at all acceptable to
the taste of the consumers. No end of
difficulties arose on all sides, and it re
quired persistent effort of the most
herculean nature to overcome the ob
stacles cast in the way of the new
firm. It required all the natural
stoicism of the German character, made
vital by the enthusiasm of a young man
who had chosen his calling in life and
would not be defeated in his purpose to
continue to battle with the great odds
against him, and, finally, to triumph
over all antagonisms and win success
out of such hard circumstances. But
the natural obstinacy of the'man, with
his love for his work, wrung success out
of the obstacles in his way. The proof
of this success is best found in the popu
larity of the house under all its styles in
all the years of its existence, and the
| ready sale of all goods offered under the
brands of the house, things that have
steadily increased at all periods of its
career, and which today are greater than
In 1875 Hon. L. J. Rose was admitted
to a partnership in the firm. Samuel
;C. Perkins died in 1579, his father hav
-1 ing passed away previous to that date.
; The firm name was then changed to
■ Stern it Rose. So it continued until
j 1887, when on the sale of Sunny Slope
!to the English syndicate Mr. Rose re
j tired from wine-making, and the
I business was continued by Mr. Chas.
j Stern, who added his three sons to the
firm, under the style of Chas. Stern &
j The dealings of this bouse have always
I been marked by a directness, fairness
I and absolute integrity, resulting in win
ning a most enviable reputation for all
I the goods handled under its brands.
These goods now enjoy a national repu
tation among all connoisseurs in good
wines and brandies. The plant of the
firm on the river bank by the covered
bridge, in this city, is known here as
the oldest, and now as the
largest and most perfect in the
section. The head of the house
has spent a lifetime in the business, and
every hour has been devoted to the
I study of the work. His sons have been
! all educated as wine men from their
j early years, and the practical experi
ence of all the members of the firm
! puts them far in the lead of all competi
i tors in their line. Mr. Alfred Stern is
the resident man here. He lives with
his family in the lovely cottage em
; bowered in shrubs and flowers just by
the distillery on Mission road. His
' lawn and trees show a little of the
leisure hours he can snatch from the
duties of his profession, and their luxu
riant growth shows that he is skilled in
more than one art.
Mr. Charles Stern says if sophisticated
| goods could be kept, out of the way there
| would not be half enough grapes in the
i state to make brandy, so great is the
: demand for pure California goods of this
' kind. As it is too many dealers take
I one barrel of pure goods, and by the
J addition of spirits convert that into six
barrels. The output of the Stern distil-
I lery last year was 70,000 gallons. The
j crop of grapes this year is good, and but
| for the depressed state of the market re-
I suiting from the malpractices of these
i rectifiers, the prices would range at $20
ito &50 a ton. But in the demoralized
state of the market the prices are not
likely to go far above hall these ligures.
THE FULL TERM.
Cassulo to be Incarcerated for Ten
Years at Folsom,
Yesterday being the time set for the
sentencing of Giovanni Cassulo, found
guilty of the manslaughter of Emanuel
Valerga, whom he had stabbed in the
groin, the prisoner was brought before
Judge McKinley. The deceased was
killed by Cassulo during a carouse in
which claret formed the inebriating
staple, and for a very flimsy motive.
The court gave the prisoner the full
term allowed by law, ten years in the
Folsom penitentiary. Several respecta
ble citizens of this city, of Italian ex
traction, said that the sentence is a just
one, and that it was a blessing Cassulo
was out of the way because he was a
bad man, with a violent temper, who
would probably have become involved in
other difficulties if his career had not
been cut short by the courts.
