Witnesses Who Seem to
The Chinese witnesses put upon the
stand in the Wong Ark murder trial,
yesterday, knew as little and had for
gotten as much as those examined ithe
Charley Ah Him, one of the leaders
in the Hop Bing Tung society of high
binders, who sat next to the defendant
and watched tho proceedings carefully,
left the room every few moments and
communicated with his trusty lieuten
ants Ah Loon and "Irish" in the halls,
who in turn kept the waiting witnesses
informed of the progress ot the case and
of any testimony that might affect what
they were expected to swear to. An in
stance which demonstrates how bold
Wong Ark's friends have become oc
curred at noon, when Officer Rohn had
a brief talk with Leu Took, ohe of the
witnesses for the prosecution, who had
been frightened out of telling what he
knew. Took said to the officer on that
occasion: "You have a God; c»egot no
?;od. If I no say what they (Ark's
riends) tell me,' they kill me."
The case was called at 10 o'clock in
the morning. Captain of Police Rob
erts, Detectives fowler and Wallin and
Officer Bevan were put upon the stand
and each testified briefly as to the events
immediately succeeding the murder and
the part they took in the search for and
arrest of Ark. Chief Glass was then
called and examined at length. He
identified Ark's pistol and photograph,
and said that they had been brought to
him by Bevan on April 27th. Bevan
told him that Goot Gue had identified
the picture as that of the man who had
shot her, and also the pistol as the one
used by Wone Ark. The chief then re
lated how he had detailed all the men
he could spare to run down the mur
derer and apprehend him.
On cross-examination, Attorney Hard
esty, in order to show Chief Glass's
animosity against the defendant and
himself, asked the witness if he did not
say in the courtroom, at the time of
Ark's examination: "The G—d d—d
s— of a b—h, he ought to be taken out
The chief admitted that he did.
District Attorney McLachlan—And
did not Mr. Hardesty say to you on that
occasion that if he had you out in Ari
zona he would shoot you?
The chief (with a smile)— Yes, he did ;
but I don't think he would do it.
This little episode created a breeze of
mirth in the court room, and Attorney
' Hardesty was preparing to continue the
controversy, when he was stopped by
Officer Rohn was recalled, answered a
few unimportant questions and the
prosecution closed its case.
Shortly after 11 o'clock Attorney Har
desty rose to outline the case which the
defense proposed to make out. It was
their intention to prove, he said, that
the woman Goot Gue had had trouble
with a Chinaman, other than Wong Ark,
about a month before the homicide. The
man in question got into a quar
rel with her over a game of dominoes
and struck her on the shoulder and
breast with the butt end of a revolver.
He threatened to kill her and would
have done so probably nad not Officer
Rohn been summoned to protect the
woman. The policeman took the China
man in custody, but he was soon re
leased because the woman did not wish
to prosecute. About three days before
the murder, while Goot Gue was stand
ing in front of her house, a shot was
fired at her from the roof of a house
across the street and the bullet lodged
at her feet. The defense also proposed
to show that Officers Bevan and Rohn
were enemies of the defendant and had
sworn to get even with him. They had
proof that Bevan had entered into a con
tract with Wong Ark to let the latter's
tan games run at the rate of $10 per
game per week, half of which was to go
to Rohn. Wong Ark had paid this
money over to Bevan regularly, placing it
in a paper and slipping it, by agree
ment, into Bevan's pocket as they met
in a certain alley way. They proposed
to show that on January 30, when an
article appeared in the Herald, stating
that fan tan was running without inter
ruption in Chinatown, Bevan went to
Wong Ark and showed him a copy of
the paper, telling him at the same time
that he must close his games for a few
days, until the thing blew over. They
would also show that tbe games did
close during the agitation carried on at
that time by this paper, but that they
afterwards reopened and Ark continued
to pay tribute to the officers. One day
Rohn came to Ark and said that he was
afraid Bevan was holding out on him;
that he was not getting his share of the
swag, and wanted to know how much
Ark was paying Bevan, but this Ark re
fused to tell him.. Finally Ark found
that the officers were getting all of the
profits of the games and that he
could not make any money with such a
heavy drain. He therefore told Bevan
that ne was going to close up. About
this time Bevan got wind of a trap
which was being laid to catch him, and
accused Ark of being in it. The men
had a quarrel, and Bevan threatened to
get even. Mr. Hardesty also stated that
he would show that immediately after
the shooting of Goot Gue, a man who
answered the description of the China
man who had threatened to kill the
woman, was seen running away from
tbe spot toward Alameda street. They
would prove also that Rohn had
not been in the restaurant where
he claimed to be at the time of the
shooting for a month prior to that event;
that he had tried to beat the proprietor
down in the price of his meals, and had
been warned to keep away.
»When Mr. Hardesty had finished giv
ing the jury a synopsis of what he in
tended to prove, Officer AVallin was re
called. It was attempted to prove by
him that Goot Gue was not in imme
diate fear of death when she made her
alleged dying statement, but the court
would not allow questions on that point
to be put to tbe witness. Attorney
Guthrie went into an elaborate explana
tion of what they wanted to adduce by
such questions, but was cut off short by
the court, much to his disgust.
Hook Moy, Len Took's wife, took the
stand and testified that she blew the po
lice whistle intermittently seven oreight
minutes before Officer Rohn arrived,
after Goot Gue was shot. She was at
home tbe next day when Bevan called
to see the wounded woman, hut did not
see her husband give the officer Ark's
picture. She did not; go into Goot Gue's
Deputy District Attorney B. W. Diehl
was called, and the defense attempted
to prove by him, as they had done with
Wallin, that Goot Gue, at the time she
made a statement implicating Wong
Ark as her murderer, in the presence of
Diehl, Judge Owens, Wallin and others,
was not convinced that she was going
to die. This was objected to and ruled
out, and then Attorney Guthrie, by a
slip of the tongue, asked Diehl if Goot
Gue told him who shot her. The an
swer was that she said Wong Ark shot
her, and the defense was responsible for
the production of a piece of evidence
they had been striving days to suppress.
At this point a recess was taken till 2
When the court reassembled after
lunch, Leu Took was put on the stand,
and gave evidence as to what happened
in front of his houee immediately after
the shooting, and in Goot Gue's room
the next day. He denied that Goot G"e
told Bevan that Wong Ark shot her, and
said that the woman was lying half
asleep when Bevan came into "her room
the day after the shooting. Bevan had
a pistol in his hand, which he put to the
witness's nose, asking him to smell it.
The witness could not distinguish any
odor. Bevan then went up to Goot Gue
on tiptoe, and, snapping the pistol, said,
"Him, him shootee you?" The sick
woman replied in the affirmative. Bevan
at the time liad no picture. The witness
never gave him Ark's photograph, and
never asked him to keep quiet about it
because he was afraid of being hurt.
The district attorney asked Leu Took
if he had not said to Officer Rohn in the
hall at the noon recess: "You have a
God; me have no God. If Ino say
what they (Ark's friends) tell me, they
kill me." The witness denied having
said this, and stated that he had said to
Rohn : "Me likee talkee true: me sabbe
God—see?" Thus Took got out of a
very embarrassing situation.
On Took's re-direct examination the
defense tried to get in the quarrel Goot
Gue had with the "big Chinaman," but
it was not admitted. The witness de
nied that he told Officer Vignes, on
April 27th, that if he gave Wong Ark's
hiding place away he would be killed.
Attorney Hardesty asked Took about the
shot fired at Goot Gue before her mur
der, but this was ruled out on an objec
After the district attorney's question
about the witness's conversation with
Rohn in the hall, Mr. Hardesty asked
the court to make an order compelling
the officers to keep away from the wit
nesses in the hall. He did not think it
right that they should be running into
the court every few moments with new
stories and spring them on the defense
without notice. The order was de
Officer Auble took the stand and testi
fied to finding a pistol in Ark's room,
under the pillow*ot the defendant's bed.
It was fully loaded and he could not tell
whether it had been fired off recently or
not. He took the cartridges out and
put them on the table. The cartridges
attached to the pistol in evidence were
not the ones he had handled, although
the pistol was the same. Charley Ah
Him's brother was in Ark's room while
he was there, and so was Officer Vignes.
There was a picture of Goot Gue on the
Lem Hing was called. He was in a
three-foot alley, between Marchessault
and Apablasa streets, at the time of the
shooting, together with Wong Tung and
Wo Chung. As he was about to step
out into Marchessault street, a man
came running toward him, but turned
on seeing him and ran in another direc
tion. This was right after the shot was
fired. The witness was asked where he
had met his companions, and replied at
a certain gambling room.
The district attorney attempted to
cross-examine this witness without an
interpreter, but he couldn't sabe, al
though he had been talking glibly in
the hall a few moments before. The
witness also had a bad memory and
could recollect very little about what
happened on the night of the murder.
He had heard of the Hop Bing Tung so
ciety, but was not a member of it, and
did not know where its rooms were.
Wong Tung, on taking the stand, cor
roborated the testimony of the preceding
witness. He was an employee of Ah
Mow's, he said, and was custodian of
the Chinese theater.
At this point Attorney Hardesty again
asked for an order of the court com
pelling the officers to keep away from
the witnesses. The district attorney
also objected to Charley Ah Him run
ning in and out of the court room on hia
mysterious errands, but no order was
Wo Chung was put on the stand to
corroborate the testimony of the last
two witnesses, and after he had testified
briefly, court adjourned.

It is not necessary to know the chem
istry of ammonia, or to know how it is
made from old hoofs and horns and rank
gas liquor, to realize that this drug
should be handled carefully and kept
out of the reach of children. Serious
accidents from ammonia are by no
means uncommon. Quite a number
have come under our notice within a
short time, a few of which are given be

used in the papers. Many details, of
course, are omitted, but enough are giv

AMMONIA KILLED HIM.
Herman Harrowitz, a Russian painter,
suffering from cramps, entered a drug
store to obtain a remedy. As he felt
faint, the druggist handed him an am

through ignorance, drank the ammonia,
and at once fell to the floor in great ag
ony. He clutched his throat and stom
ach, and blood gushed from his mouth.
His throat, mouth and lips became fear
fully swollen and inflamed, and although
an antidote was administered, he died
in great agony.

unhealthy and unfit for habitation.

A Friend to Fleming.
BIMTOM HjBBALD : When a man calls
another man behind the bars a liar, he
can hardly be deemed more valiant
than the Bmall skeptical youth, who
doubting the Biblical story of the bald
headed prophet and the bears, waited
his chance to insult a gentleman whose
top locks had departed. One day, in
front of his house, the young Ingersoll,
spying his game, yelled out at the top
of his voice : "Go up, thou bald head !"
retreated rapidly behind his father's
hall door and exclaimed: "Now, come
on with your bears."
My knowledge of the character of the
unfortunate defendant is limited to a
residence of several months in the On
tario hotel, of which we were guests,
and I have pleasure in saying that Mr.
Fleming bore as good a reputation there
as does the "generous" Judge Smith or
E. T. Murray (whoever he may be).
There is little use in friends 01 foes of
Fleming rushing into print. Enough
evidence of false swearing, erroneous
ruling and improper charge to the jury,

Will anyone for a moment believe
that an honest woman * * »
would calmly discues, with the man,
arrangements for their respective sleep

next room to the married man without
locking her door? Nothing more evi
dently false was ever offered in evidence
before a '"generous" judge, or an "intel
ligent" jury. By the bye, one of the
jurymen said to me next morning after
the verdict, "I am sorry for Mr. Flem
ing. I thiuk he is a very nice man."

Los Angeles, June 11.
Rather Enthusiastic for Fleming:.
Editors Hekalo : One remarkable
feature presented in the Fleming
case, and one that should call for a re
view,is the bitter vituperation displayed
by personal enemies of this now suffer
I am called upon to speak in his de
fense as a business man, who is neither
a personal follower or his enemy. To
me, as to many others whom I have
heard express an opinion, this whole
affair is a put up job. Mr. Fleming is
no stranger in Southern California. For
eight years he has stood before the pub
lic aa an active, energetic preacher,
educator and business man. Perhaps
his work is best known in connection with
what is called the Chautauqua movement,
In this field it is well known that he has
had a long, hard fight in securing the
removal of the Chautauqua assembly
from Long Beach to Redondo. As a
leader in this work, he has a record
•worthy of admiration. One year ago
the daily papers were full of praise for
the great work wrought out by this gen
tleman ; now, today, because charged by
a servant girl, all that he has done for
•the church, for popular education and to
bnild up Southern California, seems to
be forgotten. I say it is unfair, unjust.
The best estimate to be put on any man
is the record of his daily life and work
covering a period of years. Now,
if the "ex-Rev." is a bad man,
why |has it not been shown? No hint
ever has been made that he has ever be
trayed a trust, taken any advantage of
his social relations with hundreds of
families,been either a liar or a libertine,
or in any other respect dishonest. E. T.
Murryin today's HußALDsays: "Flem
ing's previous record was bad," and that
"his own letters prove him to be a hypo
critical liar." I suppose the allusion here
made to "letters" and to"a previous rec
ord" is a reference to the publication of
what purported to be a sketch of Flem
ing's life, in the Daily Times of May
20th; as no such evidence was intro
duced at the trial. That the' publica
tion of this "life" (so-called), was a
most outrageous assault and mean un
derhanded attempt to create public sen
timent against a man charged with a
crime, no one will deny. Who wrote
this record? J. C. Rossiter, of Pasadena,
the attorney who is seeking
on behalf of Mrs. Fleming and
her family to get possession of Flem
ing's property, and a divorce, and who
I surmise is "E. T. Murry." This
"record" was offered to the Herald, I
am informed, and refused. In this the
Herald is entitled to gratitude. If
every man charged with an offense can
be stabbed in the back by an attorney
under cover of the columns of a daily
paper, who is safe from the grossest
slanders? So far as this life is con
cerned, I have the most positive infor
mation that every charge is absolute'y
false. There is but one truth under
cover of all this vituperative abuse.
Fleming, when 19 years old, was led
into a marriage with a woman seven
years older, with whom he never
lived, and from whom he was di
vorced for adultery committed before he
married her and afterward. I am told
by a leading minister of the Methodist
church that, when Mr. Fleming united
with the Methodist conference here, his
papers in the divorce were examined by
the bishop and presiding elders, and
were satisfactory in every particular.
In fact, had Fleming's record been bad,
why has not some one beside the attor
ney, and his wife, found it out?
If the people who have thus far
planned and executed this plot to de
stroy a man to satisfy personal griev
ances, tJnink they have succeeded, they
are mistaken. Active measures are be
ing taken by Mr. Fleming's business ac
quaintances to furnish him with the
sinews of war, and we will stand by him
to the end, which will be a full vindica
tion both in law and in fact.
I am told that Mr. Fleming when
asked why he does not reply to these
articles in the news papers said : "I am
charged with the commission of a crime
in the courts. In the courts I shall an
swer the charge. If Mrs. Fleming
chooses to publish the letters written to
