THE COURTS.
The Wong Ark Jury Fail
to Agree.
Justice King's Error in the
Case of Carretas.
Attorney Biscailuz After a Big Fee
From Leouis.
Wong Ark Not Admitted to Ball—Carre
tas Not Guilty of Attempt to Kape.
Court Note*.
As was predicted in yesterday's Her
ald, the jury in the Wong Ark murder
trial could not agree upon a verdict and
were discharged after being out a little
over eighteen hours. On the first bal
lot the vote stood five for acquittal and
seven for conviction. On the second
ballot the tables were turned and the
result was five for conviction and seven
for acquittal. Shortly afterward one of
the jurors who voted for acquittal
changed his opinion and stood out for
conviction of manslaughter, and no fur
ther changes were made until the jury
was Anally called into court yesterday
morning.
When Judge Shaw assumed tho bench
shortly after 10 o'clock yesterday the
twelve good men were brought before
him and the foreman was interrogated
as to whether they had agreed upon a
verdict. The reply was that they had
not and there was possibility of their
doing so. Upon this showing the jury
was discharged from further considera
tion of the case and an exception to
this action of the court was entered for
the defense.
Wong Ark's attorneys then made a
motion that the defendant be admitted
to bail in the interim prior to the next
trial of the case, but Judge Shaw denied
the motion, and remanded the prisoner
to the custody of the sheriff. The jury
which tried Wong Ark was an excep
tionally good one, and the crank who
usually shows up in such bodies was not
present. The six men who voted for
acquittal did so upon conscientious prin
ciples, and can not be blamed for their
action ia the face of the testimony and
instructions. The prosecution hopes to
bring the defendant to his just deserts
on the next trial, howeyer, by mean iof
the new evidence they have obtained,
and with their knowledge of tiie theory
of the defense.
JUSTICE KINO'S ERROR.
Attorney A. A. Montano had Fran
cisco Carretas, the Mexican who was
charged by his wife with having made
an attempt to rape their daughter Bea
trice in Verdugo cafion some time ago,
brough before Judge Smith yesterday
on a writ of habeas corpus. At the ex
amination of Carretas on the charge of
assault with intent to commit rape,
Deputy District Attorney Diehl asked
for the dismissal of the case, and
had Carretas rearrested for battery, the
evidence not upholding the former
charge. Carretas pleaded guilty to bat
tery, and was fined $30 by Justice P. E.
King of Burbank on Tuesday, with the
alternative of imprisonment in the
county jail "in the proportion of two
days for every dollar of the fine."
justice King undoubtedly meant to
write "one day for every $2 of the fine,"
in accordance with the amendment to
the law passed by the last legislature,
but his clerical error in making out the
commitment sent Carretas to jail for
sixty instead of fifteen days. The ap
plication for a writ was based on this
error and was argued in behalf of the
prisoner by A. A. Montano and by
Deputy District Attorney Diehl for the
state. Judge Smith denied the petition
on the ground that the judgment, that
is the tine of $30, was regular, and that
the error occurred merely in prescribing
how the fine should be satisfied. Car
retas was remanded.
This is liable to prove a teat case. The
legislature at its last seesion amended
the law, or attempted to do so, so that
a prisoner committed by a justice of
the peace might only be con
fined one day for every $2 of his
tine, instead of one day for every dollar
as heretofore. The amendment, how
ever, applies only to one section of the
code, and it is a question if section
1446, which likewise provides for im
prisonment at the rate of a dollar a day,
is affected. This point has never yet
been passed upon by the courts, but it
is probable that Carretas' attorney at
the expiration of fifteen days will apply
for his release on the ground that he
has fully .satisfied his fine of $80,
when a ruling on the question will be
come necessary.
AN ATTORNEY'S FAT FEE.
The trial of the case of Jean Leonis vs.
M. V. Biscailuz, an action to annul the
transfer of half the plaintiff's interest in
the estate of his brother, Miguel Leonis,
to the defendant, which, it is alleged,
was obtained by fraud and misrepresen
tation, occupied the attention of Judge
Wade in department three of the supe
rior court all day yesterday, and is not
yet completed. Jean Leonis's complaint
sets forth that he arrived iv this coun
try from France a little over a year ago,
for the purpose of looking after his in
terest in the estate of his brother, of
which he was entitled to one-fifth. Be
ing ignorant of the language and cus
toms of the country, he employed M. V.
Biscailuz, who is also a Frenchman, to
defend his rights, and agreed to pay
himj as compensation for his services
whatever sum might be fixed by court.
Biscailuz then drew up a contract in
English, which he pretended to trans
late to Leoni3, and which the latter
signed and acknowledged before a no
tary public. This contract reads as fol
lows :
"I, Jean Leonis, of the county of Los
Angeles and state of California, do
hereby grant to M. V. Biscailuz, of the
same place, an undivided one-half in
terest in and to all of the property of
Miguel Leonis, deceased, left in the
county of Los Angeles and died pos
sessed of elsewhere of which I am en
titled, or may come to me from the
estate of said Miguel Leonis, deceased.
"Witness my hand this 17th day of
June, 1890:
"(Signed) Jean Leonis."
Leonis contends that h« was misled
by Biscailuz as to the purport of the
document he was signing, and was in
formed that it was merely an agreement
to pay the defendant whatever sum the
court might fix for his services.
Biscailuz will endeavor to prove that
Leonis made the grant with a full
knowledge oi what he was doing, and
'that no misrepresentation was used.
The amount involved in the case is
about $12,000. Itcymort, OrGla & Rey
mert appear for the plaintiff and Dupuy
& Bentley and Richard Dunnigan for
the defendant.

PORT COSTA TRAGEDY.
MORE OF THE DETAILS OF THE
ACCIDENT.
One of the Passengers Tells the Story.
Spurgeon's Horrible Death-Dr. Dor
sey's Assistance.
The San Francisco Examiner of Tues
day prints a very vivid account of the
accident to the Los Angeles express
train on Monday, at Port Costa, from
which is taken the following account
given by C. D. Robinson, who was on
the train:
"The accident occurred at one-eighth
of a mile to the east of the ferry slip at
Port Costa. We were going along at a
moderate rate of speed, as I thought,
and the first thing I heard were some
toots of the locomotive whistle to down
brakes. The brakes were applied very
sharply and then there came that famil
iar thump, but it was not severe enough
to cause any alarm. Some of the pas
sengers got out of the cars and ran up
towards the engine and when I got there
I found one of the worst smashups I
ever saw in my life. The tender and
about one-third of the engine was driven
into the mail car to within ten inches of
the end. . .
I found that we had run into a gravel
train of about fifteen or sixteen cars
standing on the main track. When the
trains collided, the gravel engine, being
lighter than ours, jutted on top of
our engine about fourteen inches,
and the footplates and bolts were
smashed. ...
"The head brakeman of the gravel
train and the engineer and fireman
jumped when the trains came together,
but the head brakeman was caught and
thrown into the cab in a sitting position,
with the cab jammed on his breast,
smashing the life out of him. I looked
in and saw him lying there. It was a
horrible sight. His face was swollen
and puffed, and he was as black as a
negro. All the blood in his body seemed
to have.oozed out of his mouth and
nostrils.
<l We got to work as quickly as we
could to release the men imprisoned in
the wreck of the mail car. A passenger
named S. Comstock, from Visalia, who
had formerly been a woodman, got a
railroad ax and began chopping away
the stanchions at the door from below.
He was a big, strapping fellow, and every
lick of the ax told. I got some sailors to
put some half-hitches around the
stanchions, and we succeeded in clearing
the way. Then a man covered with
blood began crawling out through the
window. It was the engineer of our
train. He waß, fortunately, but very
little injured.
"Then another man came out not very
much injured. Comstock kept chopping
away, and we got at Spurgeon, the mail
clerk. He was bruised and scalded
dreadfully, and he lay there helpless
and moaning. It took us half an hour
to get him him out. He was wedged in
the door of the mail car in about ten
inches of space, and suffered terrible
pain. On the way down to this city he
died, but notbefore he sent a dying mes
sage to his mother. ■
"Luckily there happened to be a lady
doctor, Mrs. Dorsey, on the train and
she at once went to work like a heroine
attending to the wants of the injured un
til the arrival of the railroad company's
doctor. The conductor of our train alse
rendered valuable service in rescuing
the inmates of the mail car at a time
when hundreds of people were standing
around entirely bereft of their wits.
"It will not do for tne company to as
scribe the accident to the act of God.
The curve is a dangerous one as one end
of it cannot be seen from the other end.
In the middle of this curve stands a
watch tower commanding a view of both
ends of the curve, and up to a short
time ago a man used to be stationed in
the tower to prevent just Buch accidents
aB this, but rumor has it that the com
pany discharged him for economical
reasons and the observation window was
boarded up."
