THE OTHER SIDE.
THE OPPKNHEIM AFFAIR IN A NEW LIGHT. The Husband's Statement—His Wife Is Now With H6r Brother—Mr. Oppen heim Has Not Neglected Any Obli gations. With reference to the story of domestic infelicity reported in yesterday's Herald about Mrs. E. M. Oppenheim, another phase has been developed. This side is the story of Mr. Oppenheim himself, who looks.upon the matter from an en tirely different point of view. This is the gentleman's story: "t married my wife in Montana, and never had any trouble with her until Wednesday night, February 3d. I have lived at Mrs. Knight's, No. 220 New High street, ever since my wife came to Los Angeles, on September 10th. I live there yet, though my wife does not. "I wept Pome to Mrs. Knight's on February flrti at 6 o'clock for my dinner; ate my meal, and told my wife I would go out for a couple of hours. I came back at 8 o'clock, and found that she had left. I waited for her until 10 o'clock, and then went to Beckwith's drug store, where my wife's brother, J. C. Jones, is employed. He did not know where she was, and I went back to Mrs. Knight's. It was 10:40 when my wife got there, and I asked her where she bad been. "She replied that Bhe had gone to dinner with a San Francisco traveling man named Thornton. "I said I wouid not tolerate any Buch actions,and she seemed penitent. "On the following Friday, however, she went out again, this time, ostensi bly, with her brother, J. C. Jones. "I made more objections to her going out without my permission, and on Sat urday she packed her trunk, and, with her brother, moved to 309 North Broad way, where she is at present. I have gone there several times to net her to come back to me, but she has refused. "The story of my having abandoned her is, therefore, false. She did leave some dresses at Mrs. Knight's, but it was as security for her brother's room rent. lam still living at Mrs. Knight's and have always met my obligations." SACRAMENTO NOTKS. Looaemore Granted a Pardon—Recruits for San Quentin.

Parker's $250 diamond ring, and who was convicted of grand larceny, was sentenced to one year at San Quen tin. Cbarleß Allen, who received the ring and secreted it in the rear of a dive, was sentenced to one year at tbe same institution. There was another surprise in the Allen murder caee in Judge Van Fleet's court this morning, when Harvey Gor don pleaded guilty of murder in the second degree. This indicates that he proposes to tell all he knows concerning the assault upon, robbery and murder of Robert Allen last May. Gordon was convicted of the robbery of Allen, and sent to Folsom for a term of seven years. He was brought back to Sacra mento as a witness for the state to testify against J. D. Smith, James Furlong, Robert Mushett and Young McKay, all under indictment for participation in the same crime. Their cases were con tinued to the 29th inst. FOUND IN A TRUNK.

Wine Men Dissatisfied With the World's Fair Commission. San Francisco, Feb. 15.—The viticul tural commissioners are complainfcg be cause the world's fair commission has delayed the appointment of a man to have charge of the wine exhibits at Chi cago. They think the appointment should be made immediately, because under the rules all exhibits of wines must be in Chicago by the Ist of next July, and as yet the wine men have not commenced preparing their ex hibits. The claim is also made tbat many men who propose exhibit ing do not know what to do with their samples and are waiting to see who is to have charge of them. If tbe appointment is not announced at the next meeting of the commission in March, the viticultural people say the wine exhibit, bo far as California ia con cerned, will be a failure-. They Bay a long time is by wine men to se lect their eamnleß. The man in charge of the exhibition will find it a portion of his duty to write to the wine-makers urging them to prepare exhibits and send them to him for transportation to Chicago. The viticulture men say the world's fair men underestimate the im portance of the wine industry, although close to $100,000,000 is invested in the business. Tho McKinley Administrative Act.

This the complainant avers was an illegal and wrongful act on the part of Woody; hence he asks that he be removed from the office of trustee of the town of Po mona. SPORTING NEWS.

The joung lady iB a stranger in this part of the county, but during her stay has borne herself above reproach. The fiend has not been arrested. It is expected that the tunnel of the San Antonio Electric Light and Power company in San Antonio canon will be completed by the middle of April or the Ist of May. The work is being pushed night and day. The threatening' weather of Sunday afternoon has passed away and the sky is now clear and cloudless and the air as' balmy as spring. Wm. E. Ward of Los Angeles, formerly of the Pomona Daily Times, paid a flying visit here a day or two ago. His genial countenance iB familiar to all our citi zens, and he always receives a warm and hearty greeting from everybody. The M. E. church was crowded Sun day evening on the occasion of the open ing of the Prohibition campaign of 1892. The speaker was an eloquent one and tbe music and singing were excellent. We understand that proceedings were to have been instituted in the superior court against W. M. Woody, city trustee, to oust him from his position as trustee for indirectly contracting with the city. We know nothing about the merits of the case. We do know, however, that Pomona is now full of contentions, and there does not seem to be much harmony prevailing. J. H. Todd, of the Pomona pipe works, has just completed and tested seven miles of pipe iine at North San Ber nardino. Three miles of this was 24 --inch pipe and four miles was C-inch pipe. He has rive miles more to put in in the lame vicinity and two miles for the Alessandro company, and twelve miles for Redlands. Our item in yesterday's Herald con cerning the sale of our school bonds, was a little inaccurate in one or two particulars. The highest bid was 5 per cent premium and accrued interest, and the bidders reserved ten days in which to inquire into the legality of the bonds. The Pomona winery is an extensive establishment and sells wine to all who want to buy, in quantities of from one gallon to a carload. A shipment of a carload was made a day or' two ago to the east, for the benighted easterners to drink. So, you see, Pomona is doing some missionary work. Some carloads of lumber are daily re ceived at our lumber yards. Plows are going in every direction these fine days since the rain. The click Of the pruning shears is also heard on every hand, budding leaf and flower are beginning to peep forth, and nature, and man too, seem to be active, push ing and vigorous. The grip seems now to have passed as silently away as it came, and it will linger as an unpleasant memory. It saddened many hearts and several homes in this city, and it is to be hoped that it has taken its fl'ght into the dark, mysterious realms of eternal forgetful ness, never to return. The "high license" people of this city claim, notwithstanding all resolutions to the contrary, that this city went in favor of high license at the last city election. It is a fact that four out of the five officers voted for by the en tire city, were elected upon the high license ticket. Two of the three trustees voted for by wards were elected upon the high license ticket. There were two hold-over trustees, and in the first ward a majority of one of votes cast was for the high license candidate. After the ballots had been counted and plaped in the box it was claimed by some one that' one of the ballots was irregular, and should not be counted for Burdick, the high-license candidate. The question, whether this vote should be taken out after having been counted, the ballots strung upon a string and placed in the box as the law required, was left to one member of the election board, who was a high-license man; and for fear of be ing charged with unfairness he decided to take off that vote. This made a tie vote between Woody and Burdick. Thess facts were given me by the officer of the election referred to, and on all these facts the high-license people say that it surely requires an elastic imagination for a man to say that this city pro nounced in favor of no license at the last election. Whatever question, however, may di vide our people for the time being! the fact remains, that Pomona stands pre eminent as one of the most desirable locations in all semi-tropic California. She contains all the elements of pros perity and progressiveness with which a generous and kind nature could endow her, and her future opens out like a beautiful and charming revelation, full of unlimited possibilities. LETTER BAG. Mr. t'lsryV Statement. Editors Herald : In your paper of tbe 12th instant, you put me before the public in a very unfavorable light as one of the bondsmen of Charles Raskin, who is antagonistic to J. P. Goytino, the other editor of a French journal, in their various controversies. Id your issue of yesterday you repeat the dose in a prominent article, headed "A Bondsman for Raskin," and an nouncing that "H. Clary, the saloon keeper," was before Justice Owens for contempt of court, in attempting to in fluence Juryman M. Pamucino against Goytino, on tho trial for libel, for which he had been arrested on a complaint of Miss Virginia Raskin, the - sister of Charles Raskin. You say that Goytino was acquitted on his trial—but you don't say how! The fact is that the complaint was defective, on account of a bungling, inaccurate translation.from the French and Spanish languages, and on the trial the "variance" became ap parent and worked a dismissal. That does not prove innocence! To revenge himself on me for being the unlucky bondsman that helped. Raskin to There's a Big Difference Between The suit that's right in all respects and the suit that isn't right in any. Put one alongside the other and the differ ence becomes so glaringly apparent that a smile can scarcely be resisted. The strange thing about it is this You're pretty sure to be asked to pay as much for one as you can get the other for. That seems to be incredible but all the same it is literally true. o o m pare: Our Make, Material, Trimmings and general Get Up with those of our competitors and you'll soon find the difference.

But that Bhot m ssed its mark, as well as his abusive newspaper slang. The charge brought against me was false, was disproved, notwithstaLding his own powerful testi mony and that of his attorney, Mr. Appel; and Judge Owens so decided, and dismissed the proceedings against me. Please publish this fact in justice to me, whom your former articles have caused much injury. Respectfully, H. Clary. Los Angeles, Feb. 15, 1892. Merits of Butterine.
