IN HIS OWN BEHALF.
Wong Ark Denies That He Shot Goot Gue. He Was Hitting the Pipe When the Shooting Occurred. The Defense Make Out an Alibi With Three Witnesses. An Interesting- Day In the Murder Trial. The Proeeeutlan Introduces Evi dence In Rebuttal. The defense sprung their alibi yester day in the Wong Ark trial, and intro duced two Chinese witnesses who swore that they were smoking opium with the defendant at the time of the shooting, on the night of April 26th. When court assembled in the morning District At torney McLachlan and Interpreter Chan Kin Sing took the stand and testified to immaterial facts. Ah Deck, a merchant, was then called. He does a general merchandise business, and has known Wong Ark two or three years. On the day that Goot Gue was shot he saw Wong Ark several times. •On the night of the murder he was with Ark at the laundry, smoking opium from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., when the witness went back to sleep. Deck located the laundry on the map as well as the room where he and Wong Ark wero smoking. Sue Woon was also there, having come In about fifteen minutes after the wit ness's arrival. When Deck left atl a.m. Wong Ark was still there smoking opium. The next day he heard that Wong Ark had killed a woman, and talked with his partners about it, being under the impression that the shooting occurred in the morning. Deck then went to Ark and said to him: "You killed a woman." Ark said that he did not, and asked what time the shooting occurred. Deck informed him, (although he said he did not know himself) and Ark replied that at that hour he and Deck were smoking together in the laundry. Going back a little the witness said that while he and Ark were together in the laundry the night before, between 10 and 11 o'clock, they «reard a pistol shot. Deck said, "Listen—a pistol shot," and after discussing the matter they came to the conclusion that some one wsb prac ticing marksmanship. The witness re turned to the laundry at 2 o'clock the next day ; Ark was still there and had never been out of the building. Under cross-examination Deck said that he left his store at 8 o'clock on the night of the murder. His partner and a number of other Chinamen were in the store when he left, but just who the other men were he could not remember. He knew it was be fore 9 o'clock when he left, for he looked at his watch. He went di rectly to the laundry to smoke, but did not tell his partner where he was going. Ark was at the laundry when he got there and Sue Woon came soon after ward. Woon, who was the proprieter of the place, asked Deck if he wanted to smoke. There was only one pipe and after Deck had smoked it he handed it to Woon, who, in turn, handed it to Ark. The witness was positive that he did not leave the place till after 10 o'clock. A candle was burning in the room all of the time. Deck did not have his own opium, but smoked Wong Ark's. He did not see Goot Gue that night. Woon soon went into another room to lay down, saying that he had to get up early and work. Ark, Woon and the witness were in the room when the pistol shot was fired. Woon explained that it was a common occurrence for pis tols to be fired oft" in the back yard. He first heard of the murder at 10 o'clock that night. He also heard people talk ing about it in the street when he got up next morning. They accused Wong Ark of killing the woman and he asked them when it occurred. They told him at 10 o'clock the night before, and he said that it was impossi ble for Wong Ark to have killed Goot Gue, as he was smoking opium with the witness at the time of the shooting. At 2 o'clock on that day he went to Ark, who was still in bed, and said: "Men say that you killed Goot Gue." Ark did not get up but turned over and went to sleep. A juror—Do you know what time it was when the shot was fired? Tho witneos—Yes; it was at 10:30. I looked at my watch as soon as I heard the shut. Sue Woon was the next witness, and testified that he has kept a laundry in Los Angeles for the past two or three years. On being shown the pistol found in Ark's room, the witness identified it as his own, which he bought in San Francisco. He kept it in his room under the pillow. Woon was in his laundry at the time of the shooting, with Ark and Deck. He left to go to bed at mid night, leaving the other two men still there. The event of the day was the calling of Wong Ark to the stand to testify in his own behalf. He testified as follows i "My name is Wong Ark, and I am the defendant in this action. I live in Fook's building, upstairs. I own a pis tol something like this one (being shown the pistol which is supposed to have killed Goot Gue.) The last time I fired my pistol off was on the American New Year, and it has not been dis charged since. In the evening of the day Goot Gue was shot I was at Woon's laundry. I went there at 9:30 o'clock. No one was there when I got there, but Ah Deck came soon afterwards. Woon came in at about 10 o'clock. Woon went to bed before Deck and I left. I was not out of the room from the time Deck arrived, until he left. I heard the shot, and Deck said: 'Listen —a pistol shot.' Woon then said: 'It is not un common for people to come around here and fire off their pistols.' lthen undressed and retired. "Ah Deck came to see me the next day about 2 o'clock.- He said: 'Why don't you get up?' I told him I was sick, and he said: 'Why, the policemen accuse you of having shot Goot Gue. I asked him when the shooting occurred and he said between 10 and 11 o'clock the night before. Deck then left, aud the next thing I knew Officers Bowler and Vignea came. Bowler said: 'Come, put your clothes on; we want you.' I did not shoot Goot Gue and I don't know who shot her. "About two weeks before the shooting Officer Bevan threatened me. He called me a liar and a thief, and said that he would get even. That was because I could not pay him any more money to let fan tan games run. I began paying him money a long time ago. First four games started up—two in the Fook building and two on Apablasa street. At this time I was paying him 13.50 a week per game. He "said that I must not hand him the money, but that I should wrap it up in a piece of paper and put it in his pocket at a place where he named before he went home every Saturday night. When the first article appeared in the Herat.n he came to me and said : 'Ark. tell the boys to close up for a time; the paper has got on to us, and we will have to lay low till it blows over.' A few days later he came to. me with a copy of the paper which had my name and the names of the proprietors of all the other games in it, and told me again to be very careful. He said to watch out for Bowler, Bosqui and Auble, because he did not want them to find hira out. After the article appeared I asked him to take less than $5 per week, which amount I was paying him, but he refused, and I told "him the boys could not afford to pay so much and were going to close up. He called me a liar and a thief, and said that I was hold ing out on him." Twelve o'clock having arrived, the court at this juncture took a recess. AFTERNOON (SESSION. Upon the reassembling of court Ark again took the stand, and, after a few questions put by Attorney Hardesty, was turned over to the prosecution. On the night of the murder Ark took a walk about Chinatown for about three-quarters of an hour, and then went to Charlie Fook's joint. He stayed there about fifteen minutes and then weht to Woon's laundry, traveling along Marchessault, Alameda and Apa blasa streets. He arrived at the laundry about 9:30 o'clock, having left the same place about 7 o'clock before going to Charlie Fook's. No one was at the wash house when he got there. Ah Deck came next day about 2 o'clock and asked him to get "up. Deck said that Ark was accused by the police of killing Goot Gue. Ark replied: "You're fooling me; how could I have killed her?" Deck assured the witness that he was in earnest, and then Ark asked him what lime the shooting oc curred. When Deck told him he called to the latter's mind the fact that they were smoking together when the shoot ing occurred. Ark still thought that his visitor was fooling and went to sleep again. He was still asleep when the po licemen came. Bowler told him to dress himself, as he had nothing but his shirt on. Vignes asked him why he shot the woman, but Ark made no reply. Bow ler said: "We want you; you are ai rested," and Vignes said: "Put the handcuffs on him." The defendant became acquainted with Officer Bevan about five months before the shooting. He didn't make the bargain with the officer about al lowing the games to run, however, till some time afterward. The deal was made on Alameda street near one of the cribs. He told Bevan that the boys would pay $3.50, but Bevan stood out for $5. He told the boys what Bevan said and an agreement was finally made on the basis of $3.50 per game per week. Bevan at this time had been on the beat about one month. Three or four pay ments were made before the Herald's expose, but Ark could not remember the exlct sum he paid Bevan. On being shown a copy of the Herald of the date of February 2d, Ark identified the arti cle about gambling in Chinatown as the one shown him by Bevan. When the defendant left the stand Hardesty said that it was necessary to make out the case of the defense that the court take judicial knowledge of the time the moon rose on April 26th last, but Judge Shaw refused to take ju dicial knowledge of anything. The case was being tried by the jury, he said, and it was not his place to do as the defense requested. Detective Fred Smith was then called as an expert on opium smoking. He testified that he was familiar with Chinese habits, and illustrated how two persons would naturally be in a bunk while "hitting the pipe." Under cross-examination the witness said that if the bunk were only two and a half feet wide and next to the wall, the smokers would have to be head to head, with the outfit between them. At this point Attorney Hardesty left his seat and rushed excitedly up to the wit ness and District Attorney McLachlan, exclaiming, "What's that, sir; what's that?" "Take your seat, will you. You've had your turn, and now I'll have mine," said the district attorney. "Take your seat, Mr. Hardesty," com manded the court, and the attorney sub sided, saying to Judge Shaw : "I'll do so if you say so, sir," and looking wickedly at the district attorney. Leu Took was then recalled, and testi fied to speaking with Goot Gue the morning after the shooting. The woman told him that just as she came out of the house some one shot her, but she could not tell who it was. The man who did it never spoke to her. Wong Choo was also recalled and cor roborated the evidence just given by the preceding witness. Officer Bevan was then called in re buttal, and denied in toto the state ments of Wong Ark, that he paid tbe officer money to let fan tan run. He first went on the Chinatown beat on February Ist. The captain of the police placed lata there on account of the ar ticle in the Herald. He showed Ark one of the Herald articles, in which the defendant was referred to as one of the chiefs of Chinatown. Under cross-examination Bevan said he knew Ark before being assigned to Chinatown, having met him at a row that occurred in January. Officer Vignes testified that when ar rested Wong Ark had all his clothing on. Officer Auble testified to being present in the hallway when Leu Took told Officer Rohn that he was afraid to tell the trruth. Officer Rohn took the stand and denied that he had had a conversa tion with Ark about the latter's paying money to Bevan. Fook Moy and Officer M. T. Bowler also testified briefly, and an adjourn ment was taken till tomorrow at 10 a. m. There are but two more witnesses to examine. LOST DIAMONDS FOUND. But the Owner Had to Ante One Hun- dred Dollars. Mrs. T. W. T. Richards,. while out driving last Sunday, lost a satchel con taining a gold watch and several thou sand dollars worth of diamonds. An advertisement in Tuesday's Herald brought a response that the property was found and would be returned for $260. As only $25 reward was offered in the advertisement, it looked as though the finder was trying to practice extor tion. The police department was com municated with, but they held that the demand did not constitute an offense, ami they declined to make an arrest. Accordingly a meeting was arranged, the result of which was that the spark lers were handed over to the owner for $100. Tbe name of the finder has not been made public, TIIE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 11, 1891. THE BICYCLISTS. The Great Road Race* on the Los Angeles Wheelmen Show Signs of Activity. A Handicap Race From Los Anireles The Members of the Los Angeles Wheel men—lnteresting; Notes for Riders . of the Silent Steed. The handicap road race to be held on the Fourth of July from Los Angeles to Santa Monica will mark the opening of the bicycle season in Southern Califor nia. The Los Angeles wheelmen pro pose to make this the greatest cycling event ever held in Southern California. A list of the prizes to be given will shortly be published in the Herald. Intending competitors should not fail to enter on or before July Ist, at the Tufts- Lyons Arms company, or with D. C. McGarvin, the captain of the Los An geles wheelmen. It is confidently ex pected that there will be from fifteen to twenty competitors. The Tufts-Lyons Arms company will give a handsome gold medal to the bicyclist making the fastest time. No time limit has been agreed upon, the handicapping being left to the discretion of a special handi capping committee. A gentlemen interested in wheeling has kindly furnished the Herald with the following information: The reorganization of the Los Angeles wheelmen took place on the 13th of last May, at which time the following offi cers were chosen for the ensuing six months: President, Dr. H. Bert Ellis; vice-president, R. C. Woodworth; sec retary-treasurer, E. W. Stuart; first lieutenant, W. A. Tufts; second-lieu tenant, W. J. Allen; bugler, W. M. Jenkins ; executive committee, H. C. F. Smith, J. L. Kapus and J. Phil Perci val; membership committee, W. E. Tyler, F. E. Olds and Phil H. Lyon. The following cyclists comprise the Los Angeles wheelmen: H. C. F. Smith, J. Phil Percival, R. C. Woodworth, Dr. H. Bert Ellis, D. C. McGarvin, C. Guillo, J. Korn, J. L. Kapus, W. M. Jenkins, D. L. Burk, Phil H. Lyon, William A. Tufts, H. E. Bnndy, W. J. Allen, E. E. Russell, Jay Sweazea, F. E. Olds, E. W. Stuart, L. D. Sale, H. E. Schofield, J. S. Perry, John W. A. Off, A. W. Herwig, G. A. Yon Brandis, Walter E. Tyler, Frank H. Pfaffinger, Frank O. Meyer, Fred A. Healey, H. B. Cromwell, Fred S. Thomas, Al Brooks. Will Noble, F. G. Watson and last, but not least, our six-foot-two—Charles E. Gale. The club has a good start, and bids fair to become a club of 100 members within the next year. A good reason for this is that it will be a league, club. As there are no doubt a number of people that do not know what "league" club means it will not be amiss to give a few facts in regard to it. The League, of American Wheelmen was founded at Newport, R. 1., in the year 1880, its ob jects being to promote the general in terests of cycling; to ascertain, defend and protect the rights of wheelmen; to encourage and facilitate touring; to promote the building and preservation of good roads, and to regulate and govern all amateur sports connected with the use of the wheel. The League of American Wheelmen has the largest membership of any amateur athletic association in the United States, it hav ing a membership of 20,000, and steadily growing at the rate of (the last few years) 4,000 per year. The California division of the League of American Wheelmen has a member ship of 550, which figure is rather small when taking into consider ation the number of wheelmen in the state. The cause of this is that the ma jority of the wheelmen are in the north ern part of the state, consequently the north gets all of the officers and all of the money. To illustrate how the wheel men of Northern California get all of the money, it is only necessary to read a circular from tbe chief consul of the California division, dated May 1,1890. This circular says: "A century run (100 miles) is hereby called for May 1,1890, etc. An L. A. W. special train will leave Hollister at our convenience, and it wilt cost members of the division nothing to return on it." That was very nice indeed for members living in the northern part of the state, but of course it is practically im possible for any member in the southern part of the state to travel over 450 miles to go on a century "run," and ride back free on the Bpecial train—back to San Francisco, of course. It is pain fully evident who got the benefit of the "free special." But every dog lias his day, and tbe members in the south have sent a petition to the president of the league praying that California be divided into two divisions, which they are likely to get, as E. W. Stuart, the local consul for Los Angeles, has a letter from Presi dent Dunn saying that "the matter has been brought before the executive com mittee in a favorable light, and that he has the best interests of Southern Cali fornia (the counties of San Diego, Or ange, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Kern, Ventura and San Luis Obispo) at heart and will do all in his power to give us the division. With a Southern California division, with headquarters in Los Angeles, wheeling in this part of the state would take an immense boom. NEW SUITS. Complaints Filed Yesterday With the County Clerk. Among the documents filed with the county clerk yesterday were the prelim inary papers in the following new cases: Clara M. Preston sues Robert H. Blanding et al. to foreclose a mortgage given to secure a promissory note for $200 executed December 17, 1889. Gilbert Smith sues John M. Glass to compel the payment of $1000, which money is alleged to have been paid to said Glass by L. M. Wagner on account of the plaintiff in consideration of his having imparted valuable information as to the whereabouts of certain pre cious stones belonging to Wagner. Leon Flohant sues J. F. Crank, re ceiver of the Pacific railway company, to recover $60,000 damages for the loss of his left foot, which was caused by his being thrown off a cable car and run over on the San Fernando-street viaduct.

The holding of the World's Fair in a city scarcely fifty years old will be a remarkable event, but whether it will really benefit this na tion as much as the discovery of the Restorative Nervine by Dr. Franklin Miles is doubtful. This is just what the American people need to cure their excessive nervousness, dyspepsia, headache, dizziness, sleeplessness, neuralgia nervous debility, dullness, confusion of mind, etc. It acts like a charm.
