The Solomon Block Fire—Mrs. Payn ter's Sa.«l Condition. Something is liable to drop in the very near future in connection with the recent fire on Spring street. It was un doubtedly a case of incendiarism, but suspicions and opinions are not evidence in a court of law, and arson is|one of the I hardest crimes to fasten on the culprit. ! That is why no arrest has been made I thus far. However, Los Angeles is not ' a very healthy place for fire bugs, several j having been sent up for their anxiety to obtain insurance money in the past, and it will not be surprising if the scoundrel who fired the building Sunday night is yet made to answer for his vile crime, which providentially failed to result in several innocent people being burnt to death. As it was, however, several people have lost their all by the infamous deed. A Herald reporter yesterday discovered several incidents in connection with the late fire which will have considerable weight when an investigation is made. Several people have taken the initia tive in getting up a subscription to make good the loss sustained by Mrs. Paynter. That lady, who has five chil dren, is in very delicate health. She has for several years made her own liv ing and cared for her offspring, but the fire destroyed every thing she had in the world. Some benevolent women have commenced getting subscriptions to a fund for|her relief. The Herald will be glad to assist in this matter, by receiving and acknowledging subscrip tions and forwarding them to Mrs. Payn ter. This seems to be a case of a most desiring woman who has bravely strug gled against misfortune and who has now received such a severe affliction as to entitle her to the respectful assist ance of good people. THE SUPERVISORS. The Business Transacted at Yester day's Meeting. At the meeting of the board of super visors yesterday the regnlar monthly demands on the county treasury were audited and ordered paid.

DECISION FROM THE SUPREME COURT. An Important Suit on Claim and Delivery. Biscailuz Wins His Big Fee—Court Notes. Justice Harrison, of the state supreme court, has rendered a decision, which is concurred in by Justices Paterson and Garroute, affirming the judgment of the lower court in the case of Claudius vs. Aguirre, a suit on claim and delivery, which was decided in favor of the plaintiff, and appealed alter a new trial had been denied. The decision recites the cause of action as follows: "The plaintiff brought this action against the sheriff of the county of Los Angeles to recover the possession of cer tain personal property which had been levied on by him under a writ of at tachment issued in an action against the plaintiff's vendor, and at the time of issuing the summons made the statu tory claim under which the property was taken from the defendant and de livered to him. Upon the trial of the cause the court rendered judgment in favor of the plaintiff for the possession of the property, together with damages for its detention, but made no finding as to its value. From this judgment and an order denying a new trial the de fendant has appealed, upon the ground that the transfer of the personal prop erty to the plaintiff from his vendor was fraudulent, inasmuch as it was not ac companied by an immediate change of possession; and that the judgment as tendered is erroneous, for the reason that it does not provide for a recovery of the value of the property in case a delivery cannot be had." After.citing many cases similar to the one at issue in some respects the de cision says, apropos of the last-named grounds of appeal: "Under the provisions of section 627, C. C. P., in an action for the recovery of specific personal property the jury are authorized to find the value of the property, if their veedict be in favor of the plaintiff, only 'if the property has not been delivered to the plaintiff,' and, c converso, if the property has been de livered to the plaintiff, they are not re quired to find the value ; and in such a case there is no verdict upon which to base an alternative judgment." In conclusion the decision reads: "We think that the mere failure to include in the judgment a clause which cannot have any operative effect, or confer any right or protection upon either the plaintiff or the defendant, does not affect the substantial rights of either party, and is not sufficient ground for the reversal of the judg ment. "The judgment and order denying a new trial are affirmed." The suit of Jean Leonis vs. M. V. Bis cailuz, to set aside a grant oi one-half of the plaintiff's interest in the estate of Miguel Leonis, deceased, was continued and concluded before Judge Wade in department three of the superior court yesterday. A number of attorneys were called to the stand by the defense, and all gave testimony to the effect that they did not consider the fee obtained by Lawyer Biscailuz for his professional services in defending Leonis's claim to a portion of his brother's estate an exor bitant one. The defense also introduced a mass of testimony to prove Biscailuz's good char acter, which had been attacked by the plaintiff. The case was submitted "with out argument, and Judge Wade ren dered his decision without further con-' sideration. The court held that the plaintiff had entirely failed to prove the allegation of the complaint that the grant was obtained by misrepresenta tion, and ordered judgment and findings for .the defendant. Biscailuz's fee amounts to about $15,000. Attorney Shinn, of counsel for Mason Bradfield, charged with the murder of Joe Dye, appeared before Judge Smith in department one of the superior court yesterday and asked that the case be set for trial at as early a day as possible. District Attorney McLachlan argued for a delay, and, the Renault case coming up, further argument on the matter went over till today at 10 o'clock, when the case will probably be set. Judge Lucien Shaw and Reporter F. H. Langley departed yesterday for a visit to the Yosemite valley. The condemnation suit of the Los An geles Terminal railway company against John Bonn, for a right of way acro.'S lot 50, of the Myers tract, this city, was on trial before a jury in department five yesterday. The suit of Henry W. King & Co. vs. J. T. Sheward, for a judgment of $334 on account, was on trial in department four yesterday. NEW SfITK. Thomas J. Siuart sues Arthur 0. Blake to recover $831.14, on a promis sory note. F. \V. Younghaus sues W. H. Hardy to foreclose a mortgage for $750. Horace G.

I was covered with scrofula sores from my in- ol to my waist, suffering so that I could not sleep nights, and could lie down ouly with pillows under my arms. My head was so sore that I could not wear a hat: and being a farm er, I could not »o bireheaded, so wore a very soft handkerchief on my head.
