Another Republican Official In Serious Trouble. Justice of the Peace Savage Arrested Yesterday. Can Bail Money Be Subject to a Garnishment? A Peculiar Combination of Delicate Law Points—What the Justice Has to Say About the Case.—He Gives Bail. 'At 4:15 o'clock yesterday afternoon Theodore Savage, justice of the peace in and for the township of Los Angeles city, was arrested in his court room in the Temple hlock by Constable Fred C. Smith, upon a warrant charging him with a felony. lie at once accompanied the officer to the court room of City Jus tice Austin, who issued the document, and there he was joined by his counsel C. C. Stephens, Esq. After a short consultation with his attorney, Justice Savage appeared before Justice Austin for arraignment. A complaint, sworn to by one Frederick L. Keeley, was then read to him. It contained al legations to the effect that on August 4th last, one Alva Udell was examined and held to answer in the superior court by Savage, in his official capacity .as justice of the peace, under bonds in the sum of $1600. This sum was ten dered by Udell in cash and accepted by Savage, who ordered the defendant re leased. Contrary to law, however, Sav age had omitted and still omits to transfer and deliver to tbe clerk of said superior court said sum of money. The charge having been read to the defendant, his attorney addressed the court and stated that he knew nothing of the details of the case, but had been informed that this money had been garnisheed within an hour of the time when he received it from Udell, on a judgment for $3,200 by one of the latter's creditors in San Fran cisco. Pending the decision of thil case, his client was in a quandary as to whom he should pay the money, and that, he believed, was the reason why it had not been paid into the superior] court. Judge Savage had offered the money to Judge Cheney that afternoon at 2 o'clock, but he had re fused to accept it until he took legal advice on the matter. It was evident that JJtbese criminal proceedings had been instituted by parties who intended to use criminal proceedure to force Judge Savage to act in the matter. He hoped the court would fix the bail in a nominal sum. His client was a county official and already unler $5,000 bonds. Assistant District Attorney McComas, who appeared for the prosecution, ex pressed his willingness to consent to this, provided that Justice Savage de posit with the court the sum of $1500, which he was said to have in his pocket. It would be perfectly safe in the hands of Justice Austin. The court, however, did not think that the defendant had any legal right to dispose of the disputed money in that way, and after hearing further argu ment, set the examination of the defend ant for 9 o'clock tomorrow morning, bail being required in the sum of $2000. Justice Savage left the court room with Constable Smith at 5 o'clock in search of bondsmen ; and about half an hour later was released; his wife, Mrs. Florence Savage, and City Treasurer M. D. Johnson, having duly qualified as his sureties in that amount. Justice Savage was seen by a Herald representative after his arraignment, but declined to make any statement. It has been known for some days past that Savage has been ihadowed by detectives. He has been followed to Santa Monica several times, and his every movement has been watched. But in the meantime Udell, although he has once furnished bail, is a sufferer, inasmuch as he is forced to submit to confinement, and is locked up in the county jail. There are several very fine legal points involved in this case. Deputy District Attorney Hardesty claims that it is an impossi bility to garnish money in the hands of a public officer, procured in the dis charge of his official duty. On the other hand Savage claims that there is a decision of the supreme court which holds that such monies can be garnished. He states that he is perfectly willing to pay $1500 into the superior court, but he"does not want to place himself in a position where the parties garnishing ■can come upon his Dondsmen and le cover. He says he is in no way able to pay $1500 twice at this juncture. There will probably he some further revelations in the case today of a most sensational character. ELECTION PRECINCTS. The Petition of the Democratic Clubs to The Supervisors. The following petition was presented to board of supervisors on Saturday, and taken under advisement: To the Hon. Board of Supervisors of the county of Los Angeles: Gentlemen : Your petitioners, citi zens and qualified voters of the county of Los Angeles, respectfully represent and show to your honorable body : that at the presidential election of 1888 there was cast in Los Angeles city, for the va rious candidates for President of the United States, a total of 12,227 votes, as shown by the records of the county, and in the city of Pasadena a total of 1,434 votes. That at that election the city of Los Angeles was divided into thirty - seven election precincts and the city of Pasadena into four. That by the returns of that election on file in the office of the county clerk, it appears that there were in Los Angeles city eight election precincts that cast over 200 votes; twelve that cast over 300; six that cast over 400; four that cast over 600 votes ; and in the city of Pasadena the lowest vote cast at any one precinct was 312. Your petitioners further represent and show that from the best evidence obtainable it appears that the city of Los Angeles has now a population of 60,124, and the city of Pasadena 4,812. That by dividing these numbers by the recognized standard of five it would give the number of voters in Los Ange les city as 10,025 and in the city of Pasa dena as 003. Your petitioners further represent and show to your honorable body that by an Hit of the legislature of the state of California, approved March 20, 1889, section 1127 of the political code was amended to read as follows: "1127. The board of supervisors or ether board having charge and control of THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1890. elections in each of the counties, and cities and counties of the state, shall, as soon before a general election as is con venient, proceed to divide each county, or city and county, into election pre cincts, of which there shall be as many as shall be sufficient to make the num ber of votes polled at any one election precinct to be not more than two hun dred, or as nearly as can be ascertained." Your petitioners respectfully represent that the election to be held on the 4th day of November pros., is a 'general election' within the meaning of the above-quoted act. We iurther represent and show to your honorable body that at a meeting held by you on the—day of August, 1890, a resolution was adopted whereby it was resolved that the city of Los Angeles should be divided into thirty eight election precincts, and no more. That by the figures above given of the population of Los Angeles city and the city of Pasadena, and in pursuance of law, the city of Los Angeles should have been divided by your honorable body, into five election precincts. That "if this is not done, large numbers of voters in these two cities will be prevented from voting, and great inconvenience will be caused those voting and in the counting of the votes cast. Your petitioners therefore earnestly urge and request your honorable body to reconsider your former action in the E remises, and to divide the citieß of os Angeles and Pasadena into election precincts of which there shall be as many as shall be sufficient to make the number of votes polled at any one elec tion precinct to be not more than two hundred, as nearly as can be ascer tained. And your petitioners will ever pray, etc. A. J. King, J. H. Melvill, W. P. Hyatt, Wm. Crawford, Committee on behalf of the Demo cratic clubs of Los Angeles city. COURT NOTES. Little Legal Matters Which Occurred Yesterday. Yesterday the several departments of the superior courts were reopened, the judges having returned from their vaca tions. In department one, T. J. Dorsey was arraigned on charge of having com mitted an assault with a deadly weapon upon the person of John Abbott. The assault was committed in the Eintracht saloon on the Fourth of July. Dorsey is a policeman. The defendant was given until Wednesday to plead. The trial of Jos6 Yarba for the mur der of Jesus Figueroa, was set for today before Judge Cheney. Neither side was ready, and a continuance was asked and granted. There are several absent wit nesses whose presence is desired before the case can go on. On June Bth Yorba killed his man at San Gabriel. The trouble originated over a game of cards. The defense claims that the killing was done in self defense. The trial calendar will be called in department one on Wednesday. Judge McKinley, who has been hold ing court while the other judges have been enjoying a respite from their labors, will now take a brief season of rest him self. PENMAN'S LITTLE VICTIM. A Little Girl at San Fernando Sub- jected to Outrage. John Penman is resting behind the bars of the county jail with a charge of attempted rape pending against him. Penman lives at San Fernando. It is alleged that he took undue liberties with the seven-year-old daughter of John Brown, a resident of the valley, According to the evidence adduced at the preliminary examination, Penman appeared at Brown's house on the 20th of last month in a light wagon. He asked Mrs. Brown to permit him to take her two children, one a boy and one a girl, out driving. The mother consented, but after Penman had been absent some time she became worried, and sent a neigh bor named Burr in search of the chil dren. Penman was found with the girl hid in some bushes in a compromising position. As soon as Penman saw Burr he ran. The children were taken home and a doctor was called in. An examination dis closed the fact that the villain had not accomplished his purpose. Burr then swore to a warrant charging Penman with attempted rape. He was arrested, given a preliminary examination on Saturday and held to answer to the superior court. THE VINTAGE. Crushing Has Began and the Red, Red Wine is Running in Streams. The vintage of 1800 has begun in real earnest. Yesterday the crushers were started in that great winery of Chas. Stern and Sons' on Mission road near the covered bridge. For the next two months this concern will crush 100 tons a day. A big start was made by the firm when the purchase of 2,500 tons from the Nadeau vineyard has made. All that couid be learned as to the prices paid is contained in a spirited remark made by the head of the firm to the effect that he thought more was being paid than is justilied by the state of the markets in the east. The varieties being first crushed are Zinfandel and Truseau. It is something of an undertaking to crush 5000 tons of grapes. The outcome in wine is about 140 to 150 gallons to the ton. Thus the 5000 tons will produce about three-quarters of a million gallons of wine. WORK WILL SOON BEGIN. The Santa Fe To Construct The San Bernardino Belt Line. It is expected that the Santa Fe will in a few days begin the construction of the Belt line at San Bernardino. It will be fifteen miles long. There are a few rights of way to secure before work can begin,but the adjustment of these mat ters is well advanced and on all prepara tions are made to begin work as soon as these little matters are closed. The Season Breaking Up. Santa Catalina will soon be like some banquet hall deserted. A great many of the birds of summer have already taken their flight for their city homes, and many others are preparing to follow soon. It has been a gay season at that favorite watering place, and great num bers of people have spent a pleasant summer there. Sudden Death.
