Fail to Secure a New Trial.

Sureties—Bur Yuen's Trial—New
The sentence of Ah Sing, recently con
victed of the robbery of Dr. Tom She
Bin in department six of the superior
court, was finally pronounced yesterday
morning by Judge McKinley, who gave
the defendant seven years at San Quen
tin, denying the motion for a new trial.
There were some rather sensational
developments in the attempts of counsel
for the defendant to secure a new trial,
in which A. A. Montano took quite a
prominent part. In an affidavit filed in
support of the motion for a new trial
Mr. Montano made some serious charges
against witnesses in the case on the part
of the prosecution. He was originally
assisting in the prosecution of the de
fendant, being employed by Dr. Tom
She Bin. He acted as counsel up to the
close of the preliminary examination of
the defendant, when his services were
dispensed with. Day before yesterday
he appeared iv the role of an affidavit
maker iv support of the defendant's at
tempts to secure a new trial. In his
affidavit he stated that Ah Yueng, who
was a witness for the prosecution, testi
fied falsely on the trial of the case in
the superior court, having told
him befoie just the opposite
to what he actually did testify. That
he afterwards met the witness, who told
him he could not help testifying as he
had done, and begged Montafio to say
nothing about the falsity of the testi
mony. He further states that he was
in the court room during the defend
ant's t rial and told H. H. Appel it was a
shame that lie should be convicted, as
he was confident it would be tne result
of a put up job.
In addition to Mr. Montano's affidavit,
there were several of a similar import
by Chinaman. When the case was
called yesterday the district attorney
presented counter affidavits by Dr. Tom
She Bin and others alleging the falsity
of the statements contained in the affi
Mr. Guthrie, of counsel for the de
fendant, commented upon the affidavits,
and in making his point that the defend
ant had been convicted upon perjured
testimony, hit Mr. Montafio several hard
raps. He believed that it was the duty
of an honorable attorney to have arisen
in court when he was satisfied that per
jury was being committed, or to have
told counsel about it.
Judge McKinley made no remarks
about the matter, simply denying the
motion for a new trial, and sentencing
him. An arrest of judgment was grant
ed to enable the supreme court to con
sider the points in the motion for a new
trial, and Ah Sing went back to the
county jail, where he will remain until
the court of last resort has passed upon
his case, whether it be in six months or
ENFORCING THE RULE.
One of the continuance cases where
the county comes out first best, owing
to the rule adopted by the superior
judges, came up yesterday before Judge
Clark. Itwasin the case of Sweet vs.
Stewart, a suit for damages for non- de
livery of fruit trees as per contract. The
plaintiff was not ready, and no satisfac
tory reason for a continuance being
shown,the court compelled the payment
by plaintiff of the cost of continuance
and jury fees.
HE HAS GOOD SURETIES.
J. C. Joplin was brought before
United States Commissioner Van Dyke
yesterday upon a charge of obstructing
the passage over government land in
Bell's canon, Orange county. The com
missioner fixed his bond at $250, which
was given, the sureties being Tom Mott
of Los Angeles and James McFadden of
Santa Ana. The examination of •he
defendant was set for October 20th.
The commissioner also heard testi
mony in a charge brought against James t
Brown for perjury, committed at Win-'
Chester, San Diego county, in connection
with a land office filing. It developed
that there was a technical flaw in the
proceedings, and the defendant was dis
SUR YUEN'S TRIAL.
For a murder trial, that of Sur Yuen,
the Chinaman accused of murdering
Fong Dick at La Canada last April, is a
monotonous one, except, of course,,to
the defendant. Yesterday the case was
resumed, and testimony was taken dui
ingtheday, the witnesses going over
the details of the crime as heretofore
fully given in the public press. The
evidence is circumstantial, and many of
the witnesses are Chinese. The testi
mony is taken through an interpreter,
and it would take more than a Phila
delphia lawyer to size up the impression
made on the jury.
The principal witness yesterday was a
Chinese vegetable peddler, who called
at the house of the murdered man with
two other Chinamen, the morning after
the commission of the crime. They had
not seen the deceased, and went through
the house, discovering the dead body in
the little room where he slept. The de
fendant was there and assisted in the
search, betraying little emotion.
Another Chinaman was examined,
who testified that he said the deceased
had $300 a few days before the murder.
The prosecution has not yet concluded
its introduction of testimony, counsel
for the defense indulging in very search
AN ORIGINAL PLEA.
Yesterday in department one a habeas
corpus proceeding was instituted, which
embraces an original manner of looking
at the responsibilites of drunkenness.
Ike Earnest was sentenced to thirty
days in the city jail for a plain drunk,
and insists, through counsel, that the
punishment does not fit the crime. He
was found drunk on Main street and
run in by the police. Since hia incar
ceration he has been relegated to the
chain gang. He claims that under the
ordinance he is illegally restrained of
his liberty, holding that although
drunk, that he was neither a nuisance
nor disturbing anybody's peace. The
court continued the hearing until the

yesterday and was virtually closed, al
though the decision of the court was re
served until this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The defense decided to put in no tes
timony,and while no decision has been
made by the court, it is generally re
garded as certain that the defendant
will be held to answer, and will make
his defense before the superior court.

No Line ISelng Planned to San Fran
cisco—The Points of a Talk With
the Santa Fe's President.
Santa Fe affairs must be couleur de
rose. Never was President Manvel so
affable to newspaper men as yesterday.
As a rule this important railroad per
sonage, when approached by a reporter,
is about as talkative and amiable aB a
frozen clam. He, like all railroadmen,
never tells anything of importance, it is
true; but as the people like to read
what such personages say, and then
guess at whether they are telling the
truth or the reverse, their utterances
have to be chronicled.
M. Manvel arrived from San Francisco
yesterday afternoon, and went at once
to the general .office of the company,
where he was awaited by a Jot of local
railroad officials. First was James
Campbell, presidentof the Santa Monica
Wharf and Terminal railroad company,
which proposes to build fiom Inglewood
to Santa Monica. Mr. Campbell stag
gered under the weight of maps, plans
and right oi way deeds he carried, but
his face was illumined by a smile of tri
umph when he came out from his talk
with the Santa F6 "magnet."
Mr. James McFadden, the owner of
the Santa Ana, Newport and Sunday
Observance railroad, was next. Mr.
McFadden had a map of his road drawn
on the back of a copy of the ten com
mandments. He talked with the mag
net for another hour, while an official
of the Terminal railroad cooled his heels
in the ante room waiting his turn.
Colonel Gassen, of San Diego, also did
some anteing in that ante room. The
colonel had the San Diego Pacific Beach
road in his pocket. From the way all
these gentlemen looked when they came
out after their talk with Mr. Manvel, it
is fair to presume that they sold their
roads, if such was their object.
In answer to the reporter's catechism,
Mr. Manvel said that he had not received
any propositions from San Francisco
people about building to that city; no
sir, he had no surveyors locating a road
to the north; no sir, he did not contem
plate building a road to the north; no
sir, there was nothing in all the reports
to the contrary, no sir.
No, sir; he did not intend to build
any extensions of his system in South
ern California. Temescal mines? Well,
he was going there; if he could see tin
enough he might build the spur. He
did not know what he would do about
the Temecula canon route. It would
not do to rebuild it where it had been,
and the company had no money with
which to reconstruct it; he would look
the matter over while here and decide.
The money market is very tight. No
matter how good securities are, it is
almost impossible to sell them. South
ern California seems to be better off
financially than any other part of the
country. He is very well satisfied with
the business done by the local roads
during the past year. The prospect for
business is excellent.
About the proposed lino to Santa
Monica|he knew nothing more than that
there was such a scheme. He would
look into it while here, but had come to
no decision as yet.
That is about what the gentleman
said. There are some people who will
think he did not mean all of it, particu
larly about the plan to build north.

Bays the Blade, of that city. There is
no doubt that the object of his visit is
to make the arrangements for the mov
ing of the old Southern Pacific depot or
building a new one on Fourth street.
It is the rumor that a new passenger
station will be built. Since the street
cars fail to connect with the old depot it
is to be hoped that Fourth Btreet will
soon be graced with a nice bran new
depot. VVhat's the matter with an ar

The state board of railroad commis
sioners held a meeting yesterday, says
Tuesday's Chronicle. The most inter
esting point in the proceedings was that
in relation to the complaint of R. G.
Sneath, of the Consumers' Ice company,
relative to the high rates on ice. The
railroad people denied, in a long answer
to Mr. Sneath's complaint, that its rates
oi transportation were prohibitory of an
enormous demand on the local com
panies for ice for use in the warm val
leys of the state or elsewhere, or that
such demand exists or would exist, were
it not for the transportation company's
present rates on the cold commodity.
It denies that its schedule rates are ten
times the rates of roads leading from the
great lakes in the east to various interior
points, or at all in excess of such rates,
after making proper allowance for the
additional cost of service to the defend
ant ovpr the cost of similar service in
the east. It avers that its rates are
reasonable and just.
With regard to the report that the
taking off of a brakeman from the South
ern Pacific train caused the recent acci

dent J. A. Fillmore has said had there
been fifty brakemen on the train they
could not have prevented the disaster, it
being the fault of the engineer and of
the men who should have seen to it that
proper signals were placed along the
track in the rear.
A new overland freight tariff, pre
pared by the Transcontinental associa

Changes are made in the east-bound
rates as follows: On dried fruits in car
load lots the rates to all points is re

pounds. On tea and tea dust the less
than carload rate to the Missouri river
has been reduced from $3 to $1. On bul
lion, released at $190 valuation a ton,
the rate to New York haß been fixed at
$1.20. On dried peas the rate has been
made $1.10 to all points, and on tank
material a new rate of 55 cents to the
Missouri river has been put upon the
Up to yesterday the green fruit ship
ments of the Southern Pacific company
to the east for the season were 2430 car
loads, as against 2050 up to the same
date last year.
A great rush of raisin shipments to
the east is now expected by the railroad
people, as the result of the reduction of
$10 a carload in rates, which went into
effect yesteiday. Raisins have been
held back awaiting the reduction.
The Shaw surveying party, of the
Peninsular railroad force, is going ahead
more rapidly than at first, says the San
Diego Sun. The two most formidable
canons have been passed, and the sur
vey line is now headed directly south
east. This morning the advance camp
was pitched seventy-two kilometers, or

sent down last Friday to San Quintin
arrived safely and all are at work.

told a Herald reporter that ex-Chief
Auditor A. D. W. McCullough, of the

five years Mr. McCullough held a sine

The Record Not Broken for Forty
W. T. Popper, of the Soldiers' home,
writes as follows about fast steamboats:
Editors Herald: I hear it frequently
said that the recent performances of Mr.
Will Hearst's new steam yacht Vamose
was really wonderful! While it must
be admitted that great progress has been
made within the last two or three de
cades in the building of vessels and ma
chinery, the writer does not hesitate to
assert that nothing has been gained in
special instances in the way of speed for
, forty years.
In support of my assertion, which will
probably strike the reader of this gener
ation as being the output of a truly good
Chicago man, reference is made to the
fact that twenty years ago the Robert E.
Lee covered the distance between New
Orleans and Red Church, a distance of
twenty-five miles, against a current
twice as strong as that of the Hudson
river below Albany, in one hour's time.
The steamer J. M. White performed the
same feat ten years before, imitating the
example of the Peytona, under Captain
ThalcroßS, set more than ten years pre
viously—in 1848, I think.
As these facts are matters of record,
within easy access of your New Orleans
exchanges, it is hoped they will Bee that
the laurels won by old Mississippi boat
men, now lying at their last anchorage,
are kept green.

So says Jenness-Miller, the famous
lecturer and writer on dress reform
and physical culture, and a celebrated
writer in a medical journal says: "Face
powders and toilet preparations have a
legitimate use in the toilette of every
woman and a use properly made need!
not any more than the proper use of a
perfume displease any one, while it
cannot be denied that they add to they
personal beauty and attractiveness and
give to the wearer an expression that
can be interpreted by any practical ob
server to mean that this woman is neat

sklf. In the use of toilet preparations
it is easy to distinguish the well-bred
from the vulgar," Another well-known
authority, Dr. Arthur Dean Bevan,
professor of anatomy in the Rush Med
ical College and P. A. surgeon U. S. M.
H, S., writes without reserve on a
kindred subject. What he says:
Chicago, Jan. 31, 1888.
W. M. Wisdom—Dear Sir: As yon
requested, I have examined the formula
of your toilet preparation called Rober
tine. I can assure you that the ingred
ients are both bland and harmless, and
that the compound would form an
excellent application in irritated con
ditions of the skin.
Society ladies and noted artistes
throughout the United States unhesi
tatingly pronounce Robertine the "per
fection" in a toilet article. Once tried
always used—such is its history.
