Visits Among the Exiles of the North
Martin C. Marsh, secretary of the
Democratic central committee " and one
of the delegates from this county to the
state convention, returned yesterday
from a trip to the northern end of tlie
Pacific coast. After the adjournment of
the San Jose convention, Mr. Marsh
went north through Oregon. Wash
ington, and even to Victoria,
toria in British Columbia. He states
that in the Puget sound cities he
found a great many Los Angeles people,
all of whom were urgent in their inquir
ies about this city, and every man of
whom was desirous of returning to
Southern California at his earliest oppor
Mr. Marsh is well acquainted in San
Francisco, and he asserts that the nomi
nation of Mayor Bond as the Democratic
candidate for governor insures the elec
tion of the entire Democratic state ticket.
"The workingmen are for Pond," said
Mr. Marsh to a Herald reporter yester
day. "They will stand by him through
thick and thin because he has been their
Discussions and Reports Among Repub
Senator W. W. Bowers, the Republi
can nominee for congress in this dis
trict, returned yesterday to his home at
San Diego to recuperate for the cam
paign. While in this city the senator
had a very busy time. He was called
upon by all of the various ward heelers,
and the demands that were made upon
him were a caution. However,Mr.Bowers
confronted the situation in a noble man
ner. By keen and sagacious manage
ment, such as he only possesses, every
body went away apparently satisfied
and there were no outward breaks.
But with some of the former delegates
who supported Mr. Lindley in the con
ventions it was different. All evidently
was not satisfactory, to judge from the
numerous consultations that were held
between the ex-delegates. Unless a set
tlement is arrived at within a few days,
some interesting disclosures will prob
ably be made concerning the inside work
of the Fresno and Ventura conventions.
A Defect in the Information Against
"Dr." Lelia Latta.
Lelia Latta was not arraigned on a
charge of murder yesterday before Judge
(Sieney, because the legal exactness of
phrase was not observed in the informa
tion charging her with the offense. In
it she was charged with the murder of
Alfretta B. Swanton, but the document
failed to state that the victim was a
human being, so a new information con
taining that statement was filed.

was examined about a year ago, but it
was thought she might possibly recover.
Frank Barker yesterday applied to
Judge Wade in department three of the
superior court for a writ of habeas cor
pus, and it was denied him. Some time
ago Frank was placed under bonds, on
application of Mary Ward, to keep the
peace. Failing to furnish a $600 security
he was sent to jail. The reason he
asked his release was because the
testimony in the justice's court was
taken down in shorthand instead of by
the justice of the peace, as he alleges
the law provides. .
J. C. JUDSON.
He Passes Away After a Protracted
News reached here yesterday of the
death of J. C. Judson, well known here
generally, and particularly SO in tailroad
circles. Mr. Judson died in Pittsfield,
Massachusetts, where he has been lying
ill for many days. He was in New Eng
land working up the excursion business
for the fall and winter, when he
j was taken down at Pitts-
I tield. His malady came and went
so fitfully that until the last
he was not considered in great danger.
A few days ago his wife at Alhambra
was informed of his improvetnentalmost
to the point of absolute recovery,and she
was looking forward to his early return
home when informed of his death. Some
two years ago Mr. Judson was severely
injured about the head in a railroad
accident in Pennsylvania, and this is
supposed to have been the remote cause
of his death.
The deceased came to Los Angeles
about eight years ago and was in the
employ of the Southern Pacific. He
then allied himself with A. Phillips and
Company, in the excursion business,
and finally formed a company of his
own. His partners telegraph that the
business will be continued and the
widow's interests guarded. The body
will be brought here for interment.
Deceased was only thirty-three years
A SEXTON'S TROUBLES.
The Court Forces Him to Support His
The case of Berkenstoek vs. Berkett
stock occupied the time of Judge Wade,
in department three of the superior
court, for a considerable time yesterday
afternoon. Mrs. Berkenstoek sued Mr.
Berkenstoek for support. This was purely
the nature of the action. The defend
ant, Mr. Berkenstoek, represented him
self at the bar of justice, while Mrs.
Berkenstoek was represented by Barris
ter Louis Yuckel.
There were several scenes in the conrt
room during the trial. Judge Wade on
several occasions threatened to send the I
defendant Berkenstoek and his princi
pal witness, hisr son-in-law, to jail unless
they ceased their disorderly conduct.
Finally the whole matter was settled by
the judge allowing Mrs. Berkenstoek
$20 per month of her husband's wages,
it having been shown that he earned
$45 per month as sexton of the Odd

A LEATHER STRAP
On a Boy's Back Produces a Family
Charles Story is a hard — working,
respected resident of Thirty-seventh
street, who a few days ago had o'ecasion
to correct his sixteen year 'old son in
the good old-fashioned way with a
leather strap. Mrs. Story objected and
entered the room while the strap was
being properly applied,and attempted to
interfere. Mr. Story remonstrated with
her, and at last placed her outside of the
door and proceeded with his operation.
Mrs. Story got very angry and swore out
a complaint against her husband, charg
ing him with battery. Officer Huston
arrested him last nignt, but on deposit
ing $100 cash bail he was released. Mr.
Story has a good reputation, and few
believe that the charge against him is
based on facts.
POND AND DEL VALLE.
The Spanish-American Club Hang Out
The enthusiastic young men of the
Spanish-American Democratic club are
determined to be heard from in the
campaign. Yesterday they hung across
Upper Main street, at the corner of Mar
chessault street, a fine Pond and Del Valle
banner. The corners on both sides bear
a tine portrait of the two candidates,
with the name of the club between. In
the center, twined artistically with the
legend on each side, is a pretty land
scape picture with a lakelet in the cen
ter, on whose waters float several fine
pond lilies. The boys know how to do
things in a handsome way.
Dorgey's House lturned.
At 7 o'clock last evening, the fire de

an alarm from the corner of Ninth and
Flower streets. The blaze was located
at 1327 Flower street, but before the
department could do effective service,
the house was entirely consumed. The
furniture was saved. The house was
occupied by Police Officer Dorsey, and
it was fully insured. The losa was $1800.
The origin of the fire was a defective

Great arrangements are being made
for the grand Democratic celebration to
occur in this city on the evening of Sat
urday next, the occasion being the visit
of Hon. E. B. Pond, the Democratic can
