IN A BATHTUB.
WHERE MRS. JAMES L. NOEL SAYS SHE SLEPT. V So She Sues Her Husband for a Divorce- Leo Lilienthal Made a Co-Defendant —Mrs. Noel Allowed Fifty-five Dollars a Month Alimony. James L. Noel for seven or eight years has resided in this city; he kept a liquor store and saloon on Main street, and is supposed to have made a great deal of money. He married in Petahlma in 1873 and lias a family of two children. Mrs. Noel is now in San Francisco,where she has recently filed a complaint against her husband asking for a divorce and alimony. Mrs. Noel alleges in her complaint that she was compelled to leave her hus band on account of his brutal treatment. So violent did Noel become when under the influence of liquor that on one occa sion his wife was compelled to take her children and spend the night in the barn. At another time she slept in a bath-tub and covered herself up with old clothes. Blows and kicks were accompanied with vile names and epithets applied to the wife in the presence of her children and friends, and contributed to cause her great bodily Buffering and mental anguish, Leo Lilian thai is made a co-defendant with Noel, it being alleged by the wife that her husband had transferred to him property in this city valued at $20,000 in order to prevent her from obtaining ali mony. She asked the court to set aside this assignment on account of fraud. Noel in his answer denies all the alle gations of the complaint, and claims that Mrs. Noel's mind is deranged. The case came up in Judge Rearden's .court in San Francisco Friday on a mo tion by the wife that she be allowed $250 a month alimony, $500 counsel fees and $50 costs pending the trial of the action. In an affidavit she set forth that Noel is a prominent liquor merchant in Los Angeles, which, in connection with cer tain valuable real property, yields him an income of $500 per month. In a counter affidavit Mr. Noel sets forth that owing to business reverses he had been compelled to assign his busi ness and property to J. Leo Lilienthal and Lilienthal & Company, to make good an indebtedness. His present in come he claims to be but $50 a month, which he receives as manager of a hotel in Porteiville. He admits the joint ownership between himself and wife of a homestead in Los Angeles valued at $5000. On this showing Henry Ach, Noel's attorney, asked Judge Rearden that the motion for alimony should be denied, but the judge took a different view of the matter, and ordered that Mrs. Noel should receive $55 a month alimony. The further hearing of the case was continued indefinitely. Suggestions About Organization. Editor Hekald :—The discussion now going on as to how the primaries should be held, if it does no other good, will re sult in awakening the Dem ocracy to the necessity for more effective county organizations. All the local clubs have declared themselves in favor of purity in primary elections, and it is fair to presume that the wisdom of the county central com mittee will devise some satisfactory plan. The question of organization however has scajcely been touched upon until the adoption by the Seventh Ward Dem ocratic club of the resolutions appearing in Sunday's Hbbald. It seems to me that the suggestions are in the right direction as far as they go. To a person familiar with political methods in the states of New York and Indiana, where every foot of ground is contested and every nook and corner ransacked for voters, the plan of cam paign in this county seems loose and ineffective. I am a believer in a political machine, not only because it is a necessity to good government, but because it is in evitable. There will always be a ma chine for the people or against them, and the machine is the best one which most nearly reflects the popular will. In this city and county there are sev eral influential clubs, each independent of the other, and each naturally ambi tious to be regarded as the most potent factor in politics. There being no com mon authoritative power to direct their efforts, the work of a campaign is many times duplicated and the attendant ex pense increased, while the struggle for supremacy often leaves lasting scars on the party. The clubs are composed of loyal, enthusiastic Democtats, and that very enthusiasm leads to these results. It is the fault of the system. Again, it handicaps the committee. If it avails itself of the services of a particular club, it is liable to be charged with partiality, while if it fails to do so, it may be said to be guilty of negligence. The need of the hour of this county is a strong cohesive organization »ith its branches radiating from a common cen ter, the central committee, and under its direction and control. The plan in operation in San Francisco, hinted at in the resolutions, modified to suit this locality, would it seems to me be as nearly perfect and come as close to the people as any that could be de vised. This scheme, as the Herald knows, consists of district and precinct clubs organized by and subject to the central committee. The precinct ciub is the Democracy of the precinct. Every Demo cratic voter, as nearly as may be, is ex pected to be enrolled on the club mem bership, and he cannot be so enrolled unless he is a registered voter. In these clubs the party battles of the Democracy are fought, contests are set tled by the central committee, new elec tions are ordered if necessary and party conflicts settled within the party. In this method the entire strength of the party is utilized and directed against the common enemy; and the central committee has behind it a powerful and compact organization. This does not, by any means, do away with the independent club which, out side of the regular organization, per forms a most important part in educat ing public sentiment and creating en thusiasm in the party ranks. In an "off year" victory is secured by getting out the party vote. With this plan of organization and the Tilden method of canvass in operation, I believe that harmony would be prompted, many votes gained and the interests of the party and the people best subser ved. The opportunity for the county cen tral committee to'distinguish itself is an excellent one. Wh. Alex. Ryan, THE RAILROADS. The Company Organized to Build From San Francisco.

The week that has just closed has been a remarkably brilliant one, with tennis, polo socials and dances in numerable, various straw rides in the delightful moonlight evening, and the tennis ball at the Casino, together with the excellent bathing, have made it the most memorable of the season. Yester day there was a goodly number of ex cursionists who came down and enjoyed themselves in every way imaginable. The surf, which is the chief attraction, was liberally patronized. In the afternoon the excellent concert on the esplanade was the chief attrac tion. Go where one would, on beach or bluff, in the various resorts, there was sure to be seen a group of business men earn estly discussing the wharf news, and the various new enterprises about to be in augurated for the upbuilding of the town. Last week there were eighteen sales of realty and there will be twice the number this week. Walking among the happy crowd of strollers upon the beach the following were seen : H. V. Wattell, AY. F. Nord holt, J. M. Crawley, Robert Hamilton, Judge It. A. Ling and family, J. Lee Burton,-Major Horace Bell, J." D. Bar rows, Dr. French, Charles Stillson, Fred Eaton, B. Colin, F. J. Capitain, A. P. Conrad and family, Dr. Lindenfeld, Philip Blind, Miss May Jackson, H. C. Hall and family, Charley Wickeman, Mrs. Chawvin and Miss LauraChawvin, Mr. and Mrs. N, R. Stanton, Misses Lulu and Jose Sepulveda, Edward Slaney, Wm. Benz, Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Walsh, Miss Menichein, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Perry, John Golmer, Joe Sehultz, Charlie Herebsch, C. K. Collins, Chris Kremble and family, W. P. Mcintosh and family. L. P. Abbott and family drove down from Compton, accompanied by Miss Lily Games, At the I'alms they were joined by J. Caress and family," and I. M. Abbott. Beneath the trees on the esplanade they spread their cloth and reveled in the good tilings the ladies had prepared for the occasion. C. T. Webber has returned from his northern trip. The gentleman states that for comfort and all the accessories that make life a pleasure, Southern Cal ifornia leads—Santa Monica being far preferable to any northern resort. Marcus Hellman of base ball fame spent the day here. Pomona and the San Bernardino county citrus belt were represented here. The lawn tennis contests will lie com menced today with renewed vigor. ALAMITOS BAY. Little Items From One of the Seaside Resorts. Therehave been more visitors at Alamitos during the past week than at any time during the season. Mr. Peter Warner and family of Boyle Heights, after spending several days here, returned last week. Col. Norcutt of Los Angeles has camped here for two weeks. P. G. McGough and family, Robert Reynolds and family, and B. Montgom ery and family, all of Riverside, have been spending the season here. There is some hope that the advant age of this place as a harbor will be realized by some of the railroad pro jectors. Rumors of the completion of the Los Angeles and Ocean road are heard. Mr. John Blalock and his sister, Miss Lizzie Blalock, both of whom have had a long siege of typhoid fever, and Mrs. Jordon and family, all of El Monte, have been here recuperating their healtn. Mr. John Freeman and family, S. L. Jones and family, S. Black and others, of Artesia, have been enjoying their summer vacation at the bay. Hunting, fishing, bathing and boat ing are the regular amusements every day. the sloop Alamito, with the McGar vin brothers and Mr. Albert Evans, of Pasadena, on board, entered the harbor under full sail last evening, bringing with them some fine results of their skill as fishermen. Aug. 27. THE TAX COLLECTOR Not Afraid of Withdrawals From His Bond. "The report that I have in any way avoided service of any papers upon me by an officer of the law is false." This was the remark that Robert S. Piatt, county tax collector, made to a Hebald reporter last evening. Mr. Piatt states that he had been in the city all along ; that while it was true that he had not visited his office on Saturday, he had been at all times ready to accept notification that one of his bondsmen had withdrawn as one of his sureties. "Have you been as yet notified that Li Bxiby has withdrawd from your bond?" was the next question asked by the reporter. "No I have not," said Mr. Piatt. "But if the gentleman desires to with draw he is previleged to do so. If the enemies I have expect to secure my office by prevailing upon my bondsmen to withdraw from my bond they are mistaken. I can play at that game as long as they want to, and I will win in the end .unless I am sadly mis taken." NEARLY COMPLETED. The Whittier Reform School to be Fin ished In Thirty Days. The reform school at Whittier is rap idly approaching a state of completion. It is now all plastered, and thirty men are engaged in doing the finishing work. The contractors, Messrs. Mackay & Skinner, state that the entire job will be completed within thirty days. | £j& The Cod j ' ( //JiaVr That HelpB to Cure I I ||/ The Cold. ;|i \\ The disagreeable < Hi \ g taste of the | cod liver oil is dissipated in I SCOTT'S EMULSION! jor Pure Cod Liver Oil with HYPOPHOSPHITES ! i ory T.TlMirri -A.
