THE HILL STORY.
A Chapter of It From Nation
al City.
How The Masher Hid Under
a Bed.
The Part Fred Drew is Said to Have
Played.
Hill Wrote to His Wife Tbat He Was
Dying When He Waa on His Way
Hack to San Bernardino —Mrs.
Hill on the War Path.
The National City record contains the
following chapter On the Frank E. Hill
story:
Our readers will remember that quite
a sensation was created about a month
ago by the escapades of one Frank E.
Hill, whose wife was working at the
International hotel in this city. Mr. Hill
had been working in San Bernardino,
where it seems he gained the affections
of one of the belles of that place, Mies
Wozencraft, to whom he was engaged to
be married, and the wedding set for New
Year's night. On New Year's eve Mr.
Hill put in an appearance here, dropping
in rather unexpectedly to his wife, who
was attending tbe masquerade ball. Mr.
Hill plead important business the next
morning and again departed for San
Bernardino, leaving hia trunk here.
Mrs. Hill that evening, woman-like, ex
plored her husband'B trunk, and discov
ered one of the wedding invitations
which had been issued. She lost no
time, and on vengeance bent followed
her truant hueband and caused his arrest
for bigamy. But Frank was a per
suasive deceiver, and Mrs. Hill let him
off after getting a public acknowledg
ment from him that she was his true
and only wife.
But here is the sequel. Frank was
still on the mash. It develops tbat
while Mrs. Hill No. 1 was still in bliss
ful ignorance ot his baseness, and at
the flame time he was making desperate
love to Miss Wozencraft and getting
ready to marry her, he was on his knees
begging another San Bernardino beauty
to skip by the light of the moon with
him on Christmas day. But this little
game did not work, and when the ex
pose came he skipped to San Francisco
and his lawful wife came back to
National.
A friend of hie named Fred Drew,
who was to have been his best man at
the Hill-Wozencraft wedding, accom
panied him in his flight, and as it now
transpires acted as go-between, and
wrote letters to Miss Wozencraft from
'Frisco attacking Mrs. Hill's character,
all of which resulted in a reconciliation
between the lovers, and which eventu
ally and within the past week brought
him back to San Bernardino.
Meanwhile the Examiner had exposed
bis little game through the ag> ncy of
Mr. Hancock of the International hotel,
and in consequence he found himself
thrown out of a lucrative position he
was holding. He was a constant at
tendant at tbe Howard street M. E.
church in San Francisco, and when he
found himself once more thrown upon
the cold, cruel world without a penny
in his inside pocket, he professed re
ligion, and immediately struck the
pastor for a loan with which to come to
National and visit his wife. He failed
to "raise the wind" in that manner,
however, and then he wrote his wife to
come to him at once as he was "dying,
Egypt, dying," and wanted to leave
such word for his sisters as could be
intrusted ;to no ears but hers. He
wrote that be had telegraphed to his
sisters and when he died he wanted
them to take his wife home to live with
them. He signed his loving effusion
"Your fast sinking husband."
Mrs. Hill, the sympathetic soul, did
not want to see her erring, wayward
spouse left to strangers' hands in his
last moments, hut before going to San
Francisco she wired the Examiner ask
ing whether he was really and truly
sick or only shammi.tg. The response
was to the effect that Mr. Hill had hus
tled money on his watch and overcoat
and left for parts unknown.
It was but a few days after when he
turned up in San Bernardino, but he
kept in hiding for four days, Miss Wo
zencraft meanwhile paying him daily
visits. She wrote a letter, at Hill's
dictation, for publication in the Exam
iner and Los Angeles Herald, attacking
Mrs. Hill's character. It appeared in
both papers last Saturday, and sounded
like the incoherent ravings of a dope
fiend.
These communications put Miss Wo
zencraft's relatives on the track of him,
and it is stated that when they went to
his lodgings to drag her away. Hill
crawled under the bed. .
Mrs. Hill left here Sunday for San
Bernardino, where evidence is being
collected with the view of prosecuting
Hill and Drew for malicious libel. Let
ters have been received here from Fair
haven, where the couple were married,
establishing Mrs. Hill's good character
and sympathizing with ber for her un
fortuuate marriage venture.
Every one who knew Mrs. Hill here
speaks very highly of her ladylike qual
ities.
THE SILVER GATE MINE.
A Denver Syndicate Secured It Yes-
terday.
Yeßterday Charles L. Eager, repre
senting Parker Dear, of San Diego
county, bonded tbe celebrated Silver
Gate mice, on the Santa Rosa ranch, to
a Denver syndicate for the sum of $250,
--000, the bond running for ninety days.
The average assays from this mine
have been 500 ounces of silver and 2%
ounces of gold to the ton. Mr. J. S.
Brown, an experienced miner, engineer
and expert, representing Denver capi
talists, will put on a force tomorrow to
properly develop the claim. Mining
experts claim tbat this is one of the
richest in California, and if the anticipa
tions of the owners are realized tbe
Hkrald predicts a boom in the camp.
THE HOGAN COMMITMENT.
A Contemptuous Attorney Released on
a Habeas Corpus Writ.
John T. Hogan, tbe attorney who had
a battle with Justice Sweet of Wilming
ton, and who was committed for con
tempt by that magistrate for an in
definite period ot time in an indefinite
place of incarceration, was brought be
fore Judge Wade yesterday on a writ of
habeas corpus.
When the writ was returned, the com
mitment on which Hogan was yanked
out of the peaceful atmosphere of Wil
mington into the turbulent environ
ments of the county jail, was read by
Assistant District Attorney McComas,
who remarked in a satirical tone that it
was "'slightly defective." Judge Wade
then looked it over, and at once dis
missed Hogan from custody.
HOY AGAIN.
JUDQE M'KINLEY GRANTS HIM A
NEW TRIAL.
The Judge Virtually Says Hoy Is Inno
cent — The Affidavits Whioh Secured
the New Trial — Remarks From the
Bench.
Judge McKinley of the superior court
yesterday granted a new trial to John C.
Hoy. An affidavit on hie behalf was
presented by Attorney J. G. Rossiter.
In this affidavit Hoy alleges that he
was introduced by Ed Baker to a nan
purporting to be M. M. Green, by whom
he was authorized and employed to sign
his name to a mortgage. When J. K.
Stump was produced in the court Hoy
recognized him as being the man who
represented himself to be Green.
On the night of December 6, 1891, he
further alleges that Stump called on M.
W. Green and confessed to him that he
had represented himself to Hoy as being
M. M. Green, and had authorized him
to sign his name to the mortgage. Asa
result, Hoy alleges he was made a vic
tim and induced to commit a crime.
Judge McKinley then granted the pe
tition for the new trial and took occa
sion to say:
"There is no doubt in my mind that
the circumstances of the case which
were brought out fully in the Baker
trial showed that Stump was introuced
to Hoy as Morris M. Green.and directed
Hoy to mortgage the property, and that
Hoy was used as a catspaw by the con
spirators to obtain the money upon the
mortgage. Hoy's fault was the testi
mony which he gave in the trial of bis
case.He must have hud some doubts and
misgivings as to the party who was in
troduced to him being the real Mortis
M. Green, and I have some doubts
whether, under all the circumstances, I
ought to grant a motion for a new trial
after that testimony. But I have no
doubt whatever that-if the testimony as
set out in this affidavit had been
brought before the jury upon the trial
of the case in the first instance, the de
fendant would have been acquitted;
that the jury would have believed, as the
court is well satisfied, that he was
used as a catspaw by these other
parties. lam also satisfied from his
testimony and from hearing the testi
mony in both cases, that so far as
business matters are concerned, while
he is a man whom you would not say
was of unsound mind, yet he is not of
full business capacity", and is feeble
minded. Of course there would not be
much excuse for a man who had Bound
business sense being entrapped in a
scheme of this sort; but it is very evi
dent that he had not, and that he was
used for this purpose for that very
reason, and was thus imposed upon by
the others concerned in the fraud. 1
think that under all tbe circumstances
of the case, under the showing made by
this affidavit, and my familiarity with
the evidence, that it is my duty to grant
a new trial in this case. The motion
for a new trial is therefore granted."

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 7, 1892.
MOVED IN.
The New Court House Being
Filled.
Allotment of Rooms on the Top
The District Attorney Gets a Move
On Himself.
The Oounty Superintendent of Schools,
Historical Society and Liw Library
To Be Housed—Justice Stanton
May Get a Court Room.
Yesterday the attaches of the county
district attorney's office moved from
theii old quarters on Main street into
the new and commodious, as well as ele
gantly appointed, apartments in the
new court house. As a consequence
there was an air of lofty elation and
mildly suppressed joy about each par
ticular luminary comprising the per
sonnel of the district attorney's pha
lanx, and they spent much of the day
in getting a thorough eyether and ney
ther accent. Early in the day Assistant
District Attorney McComas and Deputy
Marble had their coats off, and in con
junction with Deputy Yorke they set
about putting their new quarters in or
der, while the remaining contingent of
McLachlan's able staff passed festhetic
opinions on the labor proposition and
its application by McComas et al.
The new quarters of the district attor
ney are on the fourth floor of tbe court
house, and comprise eight rooms at the
south end of the building, immediately
in front of Judge Wade'a court room.
District Attorney McLachlan'a room ia
the center part room, and the rooms of
the assistants open into a central cham
ber, which, if Deputy Marble is given
full sway, will be decked much in the
same manner as the Taj Mabal interior,
with lapis lazuli trimmings cut bias.
The rooms will be suitably furnished by
the supervisors, and are alike
bright, spacious and convenient
in all their appointments.Sß The
rooms at the back of the building
on the top floor will be utilized for store
rooms, while the law library will be
located in the center room, immediately
above Judge McKinley's court room.
The apartment is admirably suited for
library purposes, being roomy, with
high, ceiling and plenty of light. When
the Solonsof the law library first visited
the room they were not altogether satis
fied, but as it has been nearing comple
tion they have signified their perfect
satisfaction to Supervisor Forrester.
At the north end of the floor on the
New High street side of the court house
are located the apartments which have
been assigned to County Superintendent
of Schools Seaman. There are six rooms
in all, and they are most admirably
suited for the purposes intended, and
County Superintendent Seaman is anx
iously awaiting the opportunity to move
out of his present cramped quarters on
Main street into hia new location.
The room immediately adjoining Su
perintendent Seaman's quarters on the
Temple street side is a spacious one,
available for a court room. There has
been some talk of assigning it to Town
ship Justice Stanton, but as yet nothing
definite has been decided.
The room In tho rear of the above
apartment is even more spacious, and
the county board ol" supervisors have
wisely set it apart as a hall of records
for the historical society.
The arrangement of the apartments
on the top floor is fully in keeping with
the lower floors of the new temple of
juatice. and in the point of the beautiful
view to be obtained from the windows,
it is decidedly superior to the lower
floors.
Obituary.
The funeral of Wm. J. Neeley, one of
the old and most honored citizens of
Los Angeles, took place last Wednes
day, Feb. 3rd, at 10 o'clock from the
residence of his oldest daughter, Mrs.
H. C. Hall, 241 Belmont avenue. The
death of Mr. Neely was made all the
more sad by the absence of his youngest
daughter, who reached his bedside too
late to be recognized by her father. She
was called from her school in the east,
where she has been for the past four
years, and from which Bhe wauld have
graduated had she remained three
months longer. Mr. Neely was 69 years
old at the time of his death; he came to
Los Angeles in 1876 from Victoria, Texas,
where he had served his constituents for
eight years as county clerk with credit
and honor. Four years after his arrival
in this city his wife died, since which
time he has been associated with the
Los Angeles Oil Co., of which organiza
tion he had held the position of secre
tary up to the time of his death. The
friends of the family deeply sympathize
with them in their bereavement over
the loss of a beloved parent.

GOYTINO DISCHARGED.
The District Attorney's Office Makes a
Blunder.
Justice Owens seemed to have exam
ined Mr. Appel's motions in the Raskin-
Goytino libel case closely between tbe
sessions of Friday and yesterday. The
objection made by the counsel for the
defense on Friday that the complaint
was not sufficient, was overruled at the
time. The Herald, however, pointed
out the remarkable variance in tbe sev
eral translations of the alleged libelous
article, and with some reason.
When tbe original article, as repre
sented by the prosecution's translation,
was offered as evidence yesterday, coun
sel for the defense objected on the ground
that it was incompetent, irrelevant
and immaterial, inasmuch as there was
a |decided variance between the text
and tbe proof offered. The objection
was sustained by the court, and Deputy
District Attorneys Diehl and Phibbs
were in a quandary.
Mr. Phibbs thought that the variance
was a matter for the jury to weigh, and
cited authorities for his opinion. The
court suggested that drafta of orders to
the jury be submitted so as to be given
to the jury. This was after it had been
understood that the people rested their
case. Afterward, however, the prosecu
tion introduced as a witness Tom Laugh
lin, formerly a typesetter for Gyotino.
The testimony of the witness was rather
tangled, principally on account of the
frequent objections of counsel for the
defense, wbo insisted upon a proper
foundation for all questions put to Mr.
Laugblin.
When, in the cross-examination, Mr.
Appel put a doubtful question, counsel
for the prosecution objected. The court
remarked:
"I think an answer to that question
ivould be immaterial."
Mr. Appel at once replied : "I agree
with the court in that the evidence of
this witness is immaterial. Let the
witness go!"
The court then stated that if counsel
desired to argue the case they might go
ahead. Counsel for the defense declared
that tbe defense neither desired to swear
witnesses nor to argue the case, and the
prosecution coincided.
The case then went to tho jury, and
in ten minutes a verdict of "not guilty"
was rendered.

LETTER BAG.
The Orrgg Cue.
Editors Herald ; Will you please al
low me a word or bo concerning '"W. P.
Gregg, a former county hospital
patient." I have known him for a long
time, and it was at my request that he
went to the county hospital last Octo
ber. I called upon him during Novem
ber and December, and he not only ex
pressed himself statisfied, but expressed
himself as highly pleased with his treat
ment in ever way.
I saw him soon after he came from the
hospital, and be 'said to me: "If it
wasn't for the coughing of the con
sumptives I would go back again." I
visited him on the afternoon of the 29th
ulto., and he asked me if I would ask
Dr. Brainerd to put him in some other
ward than the consumptives; and said:
"I liked everything tiptop, but I
couldn't stand the coughing of those
consumptives in that ward." Several
months ago he was injured, while
digging a sewer, by a cave-in. He did
not have proper treatment at that time.
As his friend 1 take no stock in the
charges said to have been made against
the county hospital officers, for he spoke
in the highest terms of them all to me.
Furthermore, I can say that his treat
men in the hospital waa far superior to
that after he left it.
Yours sincerely,
John H. Collins,
Pastor Third Congregational church.

AN OPPORTUNITY.
Wagner's Auction Sale of Part of Hia
Jewelry Stock.
A most interesting announcement
made by Mr. L. M. Wagner, the piopri
etor of the noted Kirnberley, the great
jewelry store of this city, will be fonnd
in the advertisement columns.
Mr. Wagner has heretofore conducted
two stores, his old place at 126 North
Main street, and his palatial Kirnberley
at 125 South Spring street. He has to

BAD ECZEMA ON BABY.
Head One Solid Ho re-Itching Awful.
Had to Tie His Hands to Cradle.
Cured by Cuticura.
Our little boy broke out on bis head with a
bnd form of eczema when he was four months
old. We tried three doctors, but they did not
help him. We then used your three Cuticuba.
Remedies, and after using them eleven weeks
exaUly according to directions, he began to
steadily improve, and
after the use of them for
sfing*- seven months his head
i was entirely well. When
£* m mtmW \ we began using it his
ttjjajr ■ head was a solid sore
1 from the crown to hia
I eyebrows. It was alao
nJ»S» I a " over his ears, most of
vX,* •*"s> / his face, and small
- \ I places on different parts
I'jf) I ofhtsbody. There were
V, \ L B ' xtee u weeks that we
/V Jk had to keep his hands
rim mmftl " e( * '° ' uc °rad)e and
w "* hold them when he was
taken up; and had to keep mittens tied on his
banes to keep his finger nails out of the sores,
as he would scratch if he could in any way get
his hands loose. We know yonr Ccticuba
Remedies cured him. We feel safe in recom
nieuding them to others.
