Another Republican Official
In Serious Trouble.
Justice of the Peace Savage
Arrested Yesterday.
Can Bail Money Be Subject to a
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
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.
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
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
And your petitioners will ever pray,

Little Legal Matters Which Occurred
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,

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
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
Crushing Has Began and the Red, Red
Wine is Running in Streams.
The vintage of 1800 has begun in real
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.
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.
