THE DYE KILLING.
Mason Bradlleld's Examina tion Commenced. The Testimony of Witnesses to the Shooting. •3Jo New Points of Any Moment Developed. The Wonnda Found In Dye's Body—The Manner of the Arrest of Bradfleld—A Number of Witnesses Examined. The preliminary examination of Mason Bradfleld, the young man who is charged with the murder of Joe Dye, on Thurs day, the 14th rnst., was begun before Justice Owens yesterday morning, and was only fairly under way at the close of the day's proceedings. Shortly after 9 o'clock young Bradfleld was brought to the courtroom from the county jail by Sheriff Gibson in person. He wore a neat and well-fitting suit of dark blue. Mrs. Bradfleld, mother of the accused, accompanied her son, and took her seat by his side in the court room. Bradfleld himself sat between his two attorneys, Messrs. Shinn & Ling, and throughout the entire day evinced the greatest interest in the ex amination, leaning over every few mm; utes to propound a question or offer a suggestion. Deputy District Attorney Phibbs rep resented the people, and as soon as court convened called Dr. H. D. Percival to the stand. Dr. Percival was the first man to reach Dye's side after the shoot ing and was also present at the autopsy. Hia testimony was substantially as fol lows: "I was sitting in my uncle's office, on Commercial street, below Germain's store, when the shooting occurred. I was reading a newspaper at the time, and was sitting about six feet from the door. At the first shot I jumped to my feet apd ran out, when I heard the second. When I first saw the deceased .he was in a reclining position, about seventy feet from me, supporting him self on his elbow; but before I reached him he lay flat on his back. Tlie feet were toward the southwest and the head to the northeast. I opened the coat and vest, and discovered bullet wounds on the left side. Death occurred in a few moments." In reply to questions from Mr. Phibbs, the witness gave a detailed and some what technical description of the wounds which caused Dye's death. They were, he said, nine in number. One of these passed through the fleshy part of the arm and thence into the exterior cavity of the thorax. The remaining eight shots entered tbe body between the second and lower riba. The angles of the perforations were between 46 and 60 degrees, and all of the bullets passed in the anterior surface of the body—none from behind. Mr. Ling took tbe witness after Mr. Phibbs bad concluded, and endeavored to get him tangled up aa to the direction in which Dye was facing and the loca tion of the gun which killed him. "Will you awear that the deceased was facing notth and either standing still or walk ing toward Los Angeles atreet?" said Mr. Ling. A. —Yes; judging from the angle of the wounds and the position of the body. Mr. Ling took the supposed position, and the witness indicated the direction of the wonnda. "Now," said Mr. Ling, changing his posi'ion, "could I have re ceived those wounds standing thus?" A. —I don't think so. Mr. Ling thought he could. Dr. J. S. Crawford was called, and testified that helhad known Dye twenty seven years. The deceased had lived moat of that time in Loa Angeles. The witness saw Dye the morning he was killed. He also knew Bradfleld. He was once a sort of partner of Dye's, but he understood they had had a falling out. On cross-examination the witnese tes tified that he met Dye on the morning of his death, in front of his (the wit ness') office, near the junction of Main and Spring stttets. Dye roomed in the Spence building. The witness had been on Dye's place in the Sespe cafion, and knew that he and Bradfleld were not on very friendly terma, but he had never told Bradfleld that Dye had threatened to kill him. Q. Did you not have a conversation on the street, in front of your office, about three months ago, witii Bradfleld, in which you told him that old man Stone had given you Dye's pedigree; that he was a bad man, and Bradfleld had better look out ? A. No, sir. Q. Did you know that Dye had threatened him? A. No, sir. The witness had been told by Dye that aome parties had jumped his "Oil Spouter" claim at Sespe, but Dye did not mention Bradfleld individually. He knew that Bradfleld was keeping out of Dye's way because of their trouble, but did not pay much attention to the mat ter. Mrs. Adelaide Blumenthal took the stand, but did not have much to say. She ia engaged in the clothing business at 303 Commercial street. She heard the shots, ran out of the house and to the body. Her testimony was chiefly valuable in corroborating previous evi dence as to. the position in which Dye lay. Chas. Labart, a sign painter, who lives at 127 South Broadway, was next called. He was at the new Arlington house on the afternoon of the 14th inst. when the shooting occurred. He went there to put a new pane of glass in a lamp sign. He entered from Wilming ton street, and was about to go down the Commercial-street rftairway when he heard the shots. There were two girls in the hall, the chambermaid and one other, and they screamed, "What's that?" Immediately after the shooting a man ran out of a hallway leading to the north from the main hallway, and branching off from it about fifteen feet from the stairs. He had no hat, and if he wore a vest, it was unbui toned. In build 1)0 waa slight, and his face was ornamented with a dark moustache. He only caught a glimpse of the man andWuld not know him again if he saw him. As the man passed he said some thing, which Lahart did not catch, and then proceeded toward the Wilmington street entrance. The witness, almost immediately after the shooting, went down stairs and over to Dye's body. He heard someone say: "Who is it, Joe?" and then another voice replied: "He ia too far gone to speak." Lahart then returned from room 29, from Which the man in the hall had seemed to come, and saw several people there who told him that tbe THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 24, 1891. shots were fired from that room. He saw no gun. At 12:30 a recesa waa taken till 2 o'clock. Aftebnoon session. The firat teatimony waa by Marie Uhalt, cbnducted through an inter preter, as she is a native of France. She testified that she was in the European house at a window on the side toward the Arlington on the day of the shoot ing. She had heard the shooting, but had seen nothing of it. She saw Dye after he was shot. J. W. Matuszkiewiz, the local editor of the Sud Californian Post, testified that at the time of the shooting of Dye he waS in the office of the paper, 220 Commercial street. He had heard the shots, and on looking around, saw Dye lying on the sidewalk, and ran to him. Looking at him he saw that he was dead, and supposing that he had killed himself he looked for a revolver. Officer Roberta coming up at this point, he entered the Arlington with the officer, and from information received they went down the stairs lead ing to Wilmington street. There they saw a man walking quickly toward Re quena street. The officer called to the man to atop, and at the second summons the man did so. The witness spoke to the man, asking what he did it for. In reply the man said : "I know what I did it for." In reply to a question by the witness as to his name the man gave his card. The card was produced in court, and the witness identified Brad fleld as the man who gave it to him. Dr. Kannon testified that he had made a post mortem examination of tbe body the day after the killing. At this juncture an adjournment was taken till tomorrow at 2 p.m. ROBERT AND MINNIE. THE SCHOONER CHARGED WITH ALL SORTS OF CRIMES. District Attorney Cole at Last Files a Libel—The Accusations Against the Little Craft. Libel proceedings were yesterday com menced in the United States district court by District Attorney W. Cole, against the schooner Robert and Min nie, which is now lying at San Pedro under arrest, to forfeit that vessel to the use and advantage of the United States government. The "information of libel," as it is technically'called, is an interesting document, and in substance is as follows: It recites the seizure of the vessel by Marshal Gard, on May the 9th, near Dead Man's island, and asks her forfeiture to the United States for the following reasons: "That heretofore, viz., on the 21st day of April, 1891, at the port of San Fran cisco, state of California, and on waters which are navigable from the sea for vessels of more than ten tons burden, and within the limits of said state, one George A. Burt, and divers persons to tbe attorney unknown, were knowingly and unlawfuly concerned in furnishing, fitting out and arming the said schooner, called the Robert and Minnie, with in tent that the said schooner Robert and Minnie should be employed in the ser vice of certain foreign people, viz., cer tain persons known as the Congressional party, then citizens of and residing in tbe republic of Chile, organized and banded together in great numbers in a r med rebellion and attempted re vol tuion and carrying on war against a certain foreign state, viz., the aaid republic of Chile, and the government thereof; to commit hostilities against tbe citizens and prop erty of a foreign atate, viz., the republic of Chile, with which the United Statea now are and then were at peace. And the said Burt and the other persons so concerned in furnishing, fitting and arming said vessel called Robert and Minnie in pursuance of such intent did on said 21st day of April, 1891, at said port of San Francisco, on waters navigable from tbe sea by vesaela of more than ten tons burden, place and cause to be placed on such schooner large quantities of arms and munitions of war, viz., 10,000 rifles, 10,000 bayo nets, 10,000 musketa and 500,000 rounds of ammunition therefor,and transported the same on said schooner to an anchor age on the Pacific ocean near to and within three miles of tbe island of San Clemente, which island is a part of the state of California, and is in the south ern district of California and within the jurisdiction of thia court, and after wards, viz., on the 19th day of May, 1891, then and there did commit hostili ties against the republic of Chile by then and there unlawfully delivering said arms and munitions of war on board of a certain steamship called the Itata, which was then and there a warship in the possession and under the control of said insurgents, and to the officers thereof, to be used by said insurgents and by said ship in- carrying on war against the citizens and property of the said republic of Chile, and said warship Itata was at the time of the delivery to her of aaid arms and munitions of war on the Pacific ocean and within three miles of aaid island of San Clemente, within thia diatrict and the juriadiction of this court." The court is then prayed that all per sons interested in the vea3el be cited to appear and that the vessel be declared forfeited to the United States. As asked for in the libel, Judge Ross ordered a "monition" to iaaue to the marshal commanding him to attach the schooner Robert and Minnie, "her tackle, apparel and furniture," and to detain the same in hia cuatody until the further order of the court. The marshal is also instructed to give due notice to all persons claiming the schooner to appear before the court on Tuesday the 16th day of J,une to defend their rights and show cause why the vessel should not be forfeited. The grand jury accomplished but lit tle yesterday in its investigation of the Itata cose. It is said by those well in formed, that a final report will be handed in to the court Tuesday noon.

Spring street. THE CHILDREN'S POET Third Grade School Children Discuss Longfellow. Impromptu Compositions at Thirtieth-street School. • Pleasant Ways of Teaching Children Practical Lessons. Mrs. West's Class of 9-Year-Olds Enter tain the Herald School Reporter- New Methods. A German writer has said that child ren between the years of 8 and 12 are more like jipung animals than at any other time in their lives. That ia the kind of children over which Mrs. Lizzie A. Weat, the third grade teacher of the Thirtieth-street school, exercises su- pervision. , Mental arithmetic, with its hard problems and necessity for speed, used to be the most disagreeable of studies to the present generation, when they were children, but it has lost some of its ter rors. There were no oral answers to the problems that were slowly and dis tinctly given out to the children under Mrs. West. Each child had a slip of paper upon which its name was written, and as a problem was solved the answer was written on tbe slip, numbered, and when all were written the slips were collected and the teacher probably spent some of her stay-at-home hours in cor recting and marking the slips. A leaaon in written arithmetic came next, with about a dozen of the boys at the blackboard, the othera working on paper and slates at their desks. Human nature is ever the same if methoda of teaching have changed, for there were the same sly looks of one boy at another's work to see if his answer was right, and the aame slow boya who had to have a minute or two longer thWothers to finish their work. There was, however, an absence of positive dishonesty, for there were no copied answers, and if a little lad found that hia answer differed from hia neighbor's, there was a puzzled look, but no alter ations made. There was no counting of fingers, either, to obtain a result, the work being carried on mentally or upon the board before the scholar. A lesson in spelling came in with the arithmetic in the shape of such words aa "minu end," "subtrahend," "remainder," etc., which were all correctly written and properly uaed. Arithmetic over, and there was an ob servation and language lesson. The class had previously had a lesson on spiders, and had been told to see what they could learn about them. Asked who knew anything new upon the sub ject, a score of hands were instantly raised, and a little fellow being selected, spoke up in an animated way telling how the wind spider goes to work to set up housekeeping. Other scholars gave further facta in the spider's family his tory. Now a freah supply of paper waß given out, and worda were given which were to be introduced into sentences. It was noticeable that the sentences written were nearly all natural ones, such as the child might uae in conver sation, and alao that they were all cor rectly constructed, revealing the re sults of previous good training. A few questions evidenced the fact that the children understood every word they used. Penmanship, grammar, orthog raphy, observation, quickness of thought and a correct position at the desk were all taught at the same time. The teacher had a way of correct ing, an awkward position at the dealt by drawing funny little diagrams on the board, then calling the child's attention to it, when, with a laugh, the position was corrected and work went on. A sentence waa required naming aome kind of plant that cloth ia made from. Flax waa chosen, and gave rise to a little conversational talk about the plant. A box in which flax seed waa growing waß produced from a window-sill, and a little girl brought it shyly forward for the inspec tion of the reporter. Hemp was another plant spoken of, and a box of hemp-seed shoots was produced. Cotton was men tioned, and a box full of baby cotton plants came to light. A sort of air of proprietorship pervaded the conduct of the children during this lesson, for they had witnessed the planting of all the seeds, and had watched for the appear ance of the first shoots of green, so that they felt that they knew what they were talking about. Now came a short lesson in penman ship. As the children had never uaed pen and ink before entering upon the third grade, 'the chirography was something remarkable, to say the least, but there was evidence of careful attention to the copy. The chil dren all dropped into easy positions with a degree of uniformity, but no stiffness about them, and the teacher took care to relieve the little ones by a frequent change of position of the hands and bodies for a few seconds. The writing lesson over and the gong sounded for recess, sending the children 'out to fifteen minutes of riotous play. Back again in their seats, a reading lesson was taken up, .the scholars choos ing the lesson for themselves, and the hard words being discussed by the. whole class as the lesson progressed. fiooks away, and the children recited in concert one of the beautiful poems of Longfellow, the poet whom all can un derstand. They chose their own poem, and recited it beautifully, and with more expression than concerted reciting usually displays. A few questions re vealed the fact that the children were well acquainted with the poet's history and work, and could tell the nameß and give a little sketch of the principal poems, where they could not recite them entire. New sheets of paper were distributed and the children told to write something abont the poet. Some of them merely wrote the names of his poems; some made an attempt at biography and brought in a few lines from his poems. Here are three of these efforts: No. I. "Henry W. Longfellow waa a poet, and once a little-boy who his poetry went to see him- Mr. Longfel low asked him which of hia poems he liked the beat (he knew them most all >, and he said: 'The Children's Hour.' The little boy had an autograph album, and asked Mr. Longfellow to write in it, ao he did, and he wrote the Children's Hour. When he said good-bye. Mr. Longfellow put his arm around the lit' tie boy's neck and kissed him good-bye. The little.boy is a man now,and came to visit our room. Algae Khjsey. No. 2. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow lived in a beautiful home in this country. He died in 1882 and that was nine years ago. While he was sick people tele phoned from all over the United Statea to ask how he was, and every one felt sad when he died. He wrote aome fine poema, and we know aome of them here. [Here follows a list of tho principal poema:]. . George Bleck. No. 3. Mr. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in 1807 and died in 1882. He was 75 years old. He was a very very old man and a very good man, and he wrote beautiful poems, everybody liked him because he was so good, and we have read a great many poems of his and we know the story of the Village Blacksmith, the Arrow and the Song, the Open Window, the Launching of the Ship and Evangeline. Ruth Beckwith. A lesson in sight reading from a book which none of the children had read, and which was passed around from child to child, with a lesson in American his tory, closed the session. The restive little youngsters, a major ity of whom were boys, had been kept busy and interested the entire time. There had been a good bit of work ac complished, but the attention had been unflagging, and the teacher's gentle su pervision was as unfelt by the children as its results in goodorderand profitable work were apparent to the viaitor.
