NETTIE IS LEFT GOT.
Espiritu Chijulla Gets Half the Miguel Leonis Estate. Proceedings Yesterday in the Various Courts. The Leonis Will Contest Is Settled at* Last. A Woman Scorneil, With Actor Carroll In the Caste—Remanded to Jail. Court Notes on Cases Which Came Up Yesterday. The long-contested Leonis will case , which has occupied the entire attention of Judge Clark in department two of the superior court since the morning of May (sth, was turned over to the jury yester day at 0:25 a.m., and by 5:10 in the evening a verdict had been returned. The result of the trial is favorable to the claim of Espiritu Chijulla, and against that of Nettie Pryor, who is debarrbd from any of the benefits of the estate, although she is declared to be the child of Leonis by Librada Pryor. The verdict was in the form of questions and answers, as follows: "Did Miguel Leonis, deceased, and Espiritu Chijulla agree to be man and wile?— Yes. "If yes, when?— August, 185S). "If yes, was it followed by a mutual assumption of marital rights, duties and obligations 2—Yes. "Is the cnild, Nettie Pryor, a child begotten by Miguel Leonis, deceased?— Yes. "If yes, did he publicly acknowledge her to be his child?— No." 'The last answer is the one which shuts off Nettie Pryor from claiming a share of the estate by denying tier legitimacy. The argument in this case was com pleted Thursday evening by W. T. Will iamß for tbe claimant, Nettie Pryor, after it had gone on three days. Ar. ad journment was then taken till yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, when ihe court read very brief instructions to the jury, and at 9:25 sent them out to deliberate on a verdict. The whole day was spent in the jury#room, and the result even then was not unanimous on all the counts. The estate is valued at all the way from $200,000 to $300,000, and of this snug sura the old Indian woman, Espiritu Chijulla, will inherit half, the other portion going to the French heirs. The history of the life of the old Frenchman, Miguel Leonis, makes an interesting tale. He came to Southern California with the earliest settlers, and died in this city in 1890, having been fatally injured by a fall from his wagon. A little over thirty years ago he met Espiritu, whom a fury has declared to be his. widow, and the two began living together at "El Escorpione," which was the name of Leonis's ranch. Kspiritu has at different times lived with two other men, and by one had a son named Juan Melendez, who made his home also with Leonis. The most intimate friend of Leonis in this city was Don Jose Mascarel, and whenever the, old Frenchman came tq town a room always awaited him at the house of his friend. Fifteen years ago Librada, a daughter of Mascarel's who had just separated from her first hus band, was staying at her father's house. Leonis made one of his periodical visits at tbe residence, and was given a room next. to Librada's. Mrs. Mascarel went to her daughter's room at 11 o'clock one evening and found Leonis and Librada in bed together. The couple were scolded roundly, and appeared to be duly repentant, but the result of this slip was a daughter, who was given the name Nettie Pryor, the latter part of which was the name of the man whom Librada subsequently married. Leonis frequently called on Librada after this occurrence, paid all the ex penses *>l confinement, and seemed to take great pride in his child. But he forgot all about her in his will, Which was made in 1882. This document pro vides that $5000 shall be placed in trust for Espiritu; that $5000 more shall be paid her to use as she pleases, that all tbe rent of the estate shall go back to France. A provision is added to the will, however, which says that if Espiritu, who is called a "faithful housekeeper," con tests the will in any manner, she shall get nothing. The jury, however, has awarded the old lady more money than she ever thought hi possessing in her wildest dreams, and more than she could spend in a lifetime. "a woman bco'rned." John Carroll, an actor, refused the hand of a wealthy and fair lady several years ago, when she thrust it at him, and he has regretted it ever since. Car roll used to be one of the cleverest men on the variety stage, so he says, and could "do an act" with the best of them, but he has sadly degenerated since then. Friday afternoon while Carroll was mak ing for this city from San Francisco, on the front end of a blind baggage car, he was ruthlessly fulled off at Burbank by Constable Curran and lodged in jail. Carroll toldCurranabout"the woman in the case" as soon as he was taken in custody. "She is around here in the bushes somewhere; I can't escape her. She won't let me go ten minutes from her." Curran asked a few questions about the mysterious woman, and learned the story which he told Judge Smith and Drs. Kierulff and Kanuon, sitting as an insane commission yes terday. Carroll's story is to the effect that ever since he refused the hand of the sup posititious lady she has been following him about from place to place, persecut ing him by all the means in her power. She followed him when he walked across the desert and paid people to refuse him anything to eat. She has had him ar rested a number of times, and fixes it so that he can't get work at his profession. He tried to get a job in San Francisco, but failed because she got ahead of him, and then he came down this way to avoid her. She followed him closely, however, and he heard her talking out side tbe jail at Burbank. When questioned by the doctors, Car roll admitted having received a blow on the head in Pueblo about five mouths ago. He was adjudged a harmless lu natic and turned loose. REMANDED TO JAIL, Judge Smith yesterday denied the writs ot habeasjcorpus sworn out by At torney Hugh J. Crawford in the cases 01 John O'Day and John Powers, petty larceny thieves, and remanded the pris oners pack to jail. The writ was asked on the ground that in amending the penal code the last legislature had re pealed by implication the clause under ROYAL BAKING POWDER m Prof. Hanks Shows The Great Economy in its Use.
