TUFTS TOO TOUGH FOR THEO.
He Takes the Nomination for Mayor. The City Ticket Nominated Yester day by the Republicans. Five Ballot* Necessary to Determine the Mayoralty Contest—McFar land and Hutchinson Re nominated. The Republican city convention yea terday surprised the oldeat inhabitant. It nominated J. Q. A. Tufta for mayor. Mr. Summerland and Mr. Hazard were really not in it at any time. Mr. Sum merland, aa waa predicted by the Her ald, led all the candidateß on tbe firat ballot, but he polled all of hia vote then and was 23 votea short of a nomination. Mr. Hazard failed to loom up as hia frienda anticipated, but after Mr. Tufta had won the victory he took the platform and publicly agreed to support the nominee. The convention failed to make the nomination of Mr. Tufta unanimous, although the motion waa made. The light for the nomination for city attorney waa made quite spirited by the speech of H. H. Appel in sec onding the nomination of F. R. Willie. Mr. Appel accußed Mr. McFarland the incumbent and candidate of the convention for re-elec tion with being the tool of the corpora tiona. This allegation Mr. McFarland denied, and the convention nominated him on the second ballot. The convention wae an orderly one, and dispatched business with unusual speed. Mr. Millard made an excellent chairman, and F. J. Cooper also waa a very competent secretary. Morning; Hetalon. At 10 o'clock .yesterday morning' Chai rman Walter S. Moore of the city cen tral committee called! theVßepublican city convention to order. At this hour most of the delegates were in their seats. Armory hall is somewhat larger than Turnverein hall and it is much harder for a speaker to be heard in it. Colonel Moore in calling the conven tion to order made a speech in which he referred to the excellent results which had followed the application of the Porter law to the last Republican pri maries. Secretary W. H. Burns then read the call and the roll of delegates as re turned to tbe county central committee. TUB ORGANIZATION. Nominations for temporary chairman being in order, George L. Arnold nomi nated S. C. Hubbel. Hon. T. J. Carran placed in nomina tion S. G. Millard. Charles E. Day was also placed in nomination. The roll of wards was then called, and Mr. Millard was elected. He received 109 votes to 78 for Judge Hubbel. Prior to the time the vote was taken, Mr. Day withdrew in favor of Judge Hubbel. Mr. Millard was declared elected, and on motion of Judge Hubbel his election was made unanimous. Messrs. Hubbel and Ling were ap pointed aB a committee to escort Chair man Millard to the platform. Mr. Mil lard was received by the delegates with applause. He made a very clever Re publican campaign speech, also thank ing the convention for the honor that had been conferred upon him. F. J. Cooper was elected temporary secretary, with C. Soward and A. L. Newbauer as assistants. J. W. Calvin was elected sergeant at arms, with Messrs. Adams, Frank, Wil kins and Foster as assistants. THE COMMITTEEB. The usual motions were made for the appointment of committees, to consist of one member of each committee from each of the nine wards. On motion of S. A. Garrett, the chair man of each delegation was directed to hand in the names of a member tor each committee. Three pages were appointed, aB fol lows : Ben Ferner, J. C. Piatt and David Kinsey. The committees as named by the vari ous wards were as follows: Permanent Organization—L. M. Brown, H. H. Appei, George Sinsabaugh, J. A. Thomas, W. E. Dunn, L. Thome, C. H. Humphreys, A. G. Rivera, G. L. Ar nold. Resolutions—W. Homer Kennedy, W. A. Spalding, A. E. Pomeroy, S. B. Hynes, Horace Hiller, C. H. Alford, J. C. Cusick, T. J. Carran, S. C. Hubbell. Oredentiala—W. Cole, jr., Harry lies, M. G. McCoon, H. T. Cooley, T. J. Thomas, Wm. Dodge, M. Barnes, C. E. DeCamD, T. Teele, sr. The convention then adjourned until 1 p. m. Afternoon Session. The afternoon session of the conven tion was called to order at 1:15. The flret order of business, Chairman Willard announced, was the report of the committee on credentials. The com mittee had no contests to settle and re ported that the delegations as returned to the city central committee were en titled to seats. In addition the report eaid: "Your committee recommend that no proxies be given outside the delegation unless to a resident of the ward, and in that event only with the approval of a majority of the delegation present. Should any proxies be given they must be in writing, signed by the delegate giving the same and first filed with the secretary of the convention. "We further recommend that the names returned by the city central com mittee as receiving the highest number of votes at the primaries for the offices of councilman and members of tbe board of eaucation in the respective wards be declared the nominees for these respec tive offices in their several wards by this convention. Mr. Phillips of the Second ward ob jected to the report of the committee as to the choice for councilmen and mem bers of the school board. The report was adopted, though with tbe exception that it waß made not to cover tbe Second ward. At the primaries last Saturday 0. Morgan was nominated for the coun cil, but a majority of the delegates are for Major J. M. Frew. The committee on permanent organ ization and order of business reported as follows: That the temporary organization of this convention be made the permanent one.

After several endervore to change the order of business as to nominations, the report was adopted as read. MAYORALTY RESOLUTIONS. Nominations for mayor were next de clared to be in order. An amendment was made that nom inating speeches be limited to three minutes, and the motion prevailed. The point of order waa made that nominations were not in order until the committee on resolutions had reported. The chair ruled that the point was well taken. The committee on resolutions an nounced that in five minutes their re port would be ready. The chair again called for nominations for mayor. Hon. J. L. Murphey then took the platform, and placed in nomination Henry T. Hazard. In his opening re marks Mr. Murphey dwelt upon the statement that the people and not the bosses controlled the Republican party. He was also in favor of municipal owner ship of the gas, water and electric light works, as well as the telephone system. Mr. Murphey predicted a boom for Los Angeles such as it had never before seen, and he thought that now was the time for the party to select the best can didates it could possibly name, without regard to personal feeling. The speaker gave each of the candidates a very fine personal compliment. When the name of Theodore Summerland was mentionnd it was received with great applause. When finally Mr. Murphey- reached tbe name of Mr. Hazard, he <said that no one but a boodler could say aught against him. He referred to Mr. Haz ard's political success. Judge Variel of the Ninth ward then placed J. C. Tufts in nomination in a brief but pointed speech. Mr. Thomas of the Fifth ward, Coun cilman Alford, and Major M. L. Starin all seconded the nomination. Thomas J. Carran placed the name of Theodore Summerland before the con vention, whom he pronounced to be a typical Californian. Tbe nominations were then closed and the report of the committee on resolu tions was read and adopted. The candidates, Messrs. Hazard, Tufts and Summerland, then endorsed the platform. The chair announced a resolution, which was adopted, that the delegates of each ward vote a secret ballot, and that tbe chairman of each delegation an nounce the vote of the ward. The candidates then stepped forwaid, and with a few remarks deposited their $5 as:essment. ME. UOKTON'S SPEECH. R. L. Horton of the Fifth ward, hold ing a proxy of the Second ward, in a speech seconded the nomination of Hazard. Just then J. L. Murphey, also of the Fifth ward, showed that Horton was not a delegate. At the same time Police Commissioner Lewis rose aud stated that Horton could not come as a delegate from the Fifth ward. Amid a great deal of noise and con fusion Horton arose to a question of privilege and explained that tbe Fifth ward delegation was a Tufts delegation, and that no opposition ticket was placed in tbe field as Hazard objected to it, and that if he chose to come as a delegate he could have done so. THE BALLOTING. The first ballot waa then taken, re sulting as follows: Tufts 63 Hazard 62 Summerland 80 Total vote 205 Necessary to a choice, 103. The second ballot resulted as follows: Tufts 70 HHzard 56 Summerland 79 Total vote 205 Necessary to a choice, 103. The third ballot resulted as follows: Tufts.. 78 Hazard 49 Summerland 78 Total vote 205 Necessary to a choice, 103. The fourth ballot resulted as follows: Tufts 101 Hazard 27 Summerland 77 Total vote 205 Necesmy to a choice, 103. Just as tbe ballot was declared one of Summerland's friends announced that Mr. Summeiland wished his name with drawn, but the remarks were hooted down. Tbe crowd then started a great howl for Hazard, meaning the Summer land votes to be thrown to Hazard, but when quiet was restored Mr. Summer land got up on the platform and stated that there had been a misunderstanding and that he meant to stay in the fight another ballot. The chair then ordered the roll called, and Mr. Tufts was nomi nated. The ballot was: Tuffts HI Hazard 45 Summerland 49 Total vote 205 Necessary to a choice, 103. TUFTS DECLARED THE NOMINEE. Mr. Tufts was then declared the nom inee of the convention. Mr. Summer land amid cheers escorted the gentleman to the platform and introduced him as the next mayor of Los Angeles. Mr. Hazard moved that the nomina tion of Mr. Tufts be made unanimous. A vote was taken upon tbe motion and some noes could be very distinctly heard. Mr. Tufts, on taking the platform, re turned his thanks to the convention for the honor conferred upon him and paid a flattering compliment to Messrs. Sum merland and Hazard. THE SECRET BALLOT. S. A.

Two Interesting' .Foreclosure Suits from La Canada Valley. Proceedings Yesterday In the Various Tribunals—New Cases Filed. Court Notes—Marriage Licenses. Two young men, Louis Etting and Burt Hadley, were on trial before Judge Smith in department one of the superior court yesterday, charged with knocking down and robbing Louis Boiron, a mid dle-aged Frenchman, the night of Sep tember 6th, on Alameda street. Considerable interest attaches to the case from the unusual efforts being made in the defense of the boys, and the sensational testimony of a young woman, which, if unimpeached, will be bound to convict them. When the case was called at 10 o'clock, ex-District Attorney J. R. Dupuy ap peared for both defendants, and Judge Rowell of San Bernardino, who was re tained by Hadley's relatives in that city. Deputy District Attorney Blades ap peared for the prosecution. A jury was impaneled by noon and the prosecution had not finished its testimony at the time of adjournment in the afternoon. Louis Boiron was first called by the prosecution, and through an interpreter related the story of the robbery, which was quite a simple affair. He was walking along Alameda street between 11 and 12 o'clock of the night in ques tion, and had reached Jackson street, when he was knocked down by a blow on the head, which somebody struck him from behind. He was partially stunned, and when he got to his feet again fonnd his gold watch, chain and locket missing, which he swore were on his person just before he wae assaulted. He did not see his assailants and could not identify the defendants when brought before him. He said he had had several drinks during the evening but was not drunk. The defense developed upon the cross examination of the Frenchman. Mr. Dupuy asked him bis business on Ala meda street. Mr. Boiron eaid that he had tried to see a French woman named Julie Conteau, whose house is near the fcene of the robbery. He had rented a room from her in a house at Santa Mon ica, which he bad given up, and had called at her place on Alameda street that, evening to see her, but she was out. He had just come from there when he was robbed, as he had to leave the city at 4 o'clock in the morning and wanted to see her. The defense evidently is expecting to be able to show that Boiron was robbed before the time which he alleges that painful experience occurred. Police Officer McClain was near the scene of the robbery when he heard some one shout, "There go the men who robbed the Frenchmen." He saw three men running out Jackson street, and leaving the depot night watchman in charge of Boiron, ran after them. He chased them clenr to First street, where he caught them and marched them back to Alameda street, where Boiron waß un able to identify them. Nevertheless, they were held on suspicion. On cross-examination Mr. Dupuy in quired very minutely into the distance from Julie Conteau's place and tbe scene of the robbery, which was distant about 60 feet. He also inquired into other lo cations and distances in the Alameda street section of the city. When the name of Viola Mendenhall was called, a rather good-looking young woman with flushed cheeks came for ward and the defendants and their friends betrayed unusual intereetin her. She responded to the preliminary ques tions in a voice so low "that the reporter waa obliged to repeat every answer, and did not appear to relish her situation at all. She testified: "I am living at the New Orleans hotel, and know both the defendants. I saw tbem both at the Denver house on Main street near First, September 6th." Mr. Blades produced a gold watch and chain and the witness identified them. "I have seen them before," she said unwillingly. "Mr. Hadley told me it waa taken, in a conversation the same day he gave me the watch to keep for him. Mr. Etting was present at the time." "They gave me the watch to keep un til they asked me for it, Hadley told me." "Told you what?" "Told me they got it from a party that he and Mr. Etting had robbed. They had taken it away from him. Burt Had ley produced the watch. They did not cay who they took it from. Etting told me something about getting the watch the same aB Mr. Hadley said. Hadley eaid they knocked him down and took the watch from him. They told me that when they took it from him they broke a piece from the chain. They eaid it happened Tuesday night, the night be fore this conversation. They said an officer tried to catch them and they ran away. Etting told me he had the watch in his pocket at the time they met the policeman." Mr. Dupuy went after the young woman on a severe cross-examination, inquiring into her private history minutely until stopped by the court. She admitted that she is not living with her husband, and was very reluctant to tell where she has lived in the city, say ing she had resided at her present place of abode, at the Denver house and vari ous other places. She finally admitted that she had also been for a week at the Home for Fallen Women, and from there went to the county hospital. She had lived in the city three yean as a waitress in restaurants. Upon being closely pushed by counsel, The Verdict of Mankind Claims confidence. It crowns Apollinaris "Queen of Table Waters," proclaims it übiqui tous, and, as the London Times says, " Familiar in millions of mouths as any household word." " Its long-continued and world-wide use attests its merit."—New York Medical Journal. Mrs. Mendenhall said the New Orleans house is a dance house. "Were you not living at the Denver house with Robert Harvey?" asked counsel. The court euetained an objection to this question, and the witness declined to answer whether any one occupied her room with her. She said she occupied room No. 8, and tho defendants' room, Mo. 1, was across the hall, and ehe was introduced to them by Robert Harvey. She had known them about a week when they gave her the watch. Mrs. M. R. Hilbish, matron of the Home for Fallen Women, was called and her testimony corroborated the story of the preceding witness. The girl was at the home about a week, and after she had been there a day or two she handed her tbe identical watch, chain and locket identified by Louie Boiron as his property, and told her that the defend ants had given it to her to keep for them. After Bhe had left the defend ants came there and wanted to see her, as they suid, to get "a watch of theirs she had." They aßked where they could find her. Andrew M. Armour, also connected with tho institution, had been given tbe watch by Mrs. Hilbish and turned it over to the officers. At this point the court adjourned un til this morning when the trial will be resumed. TWO FORECLOSURE SUITS. An Intricate Land Transaction and the Result. Foreclosure suits were instituted yes terday by H. W. Magee of Pasadena, which will possibly reßult in the thor ough investigation of certain land tran sactions in the La Canada valley north west of Pasadena, which have been go ing on there for two years past, and which may result in quite sensational features. The suits begun by Mr. Magee are two in number, one of them against Mrs. McCormic and the other against Mr. McArthur and wife. Mr. Mc.irthur sold Mrs. McCormic a cultivated fruit ranch of 40 1 , acres in June, 1891, for $30,000. She gave Mr. McArthur a mortgage on the premises and six notes for $5000 each, the last payable in 1896. Incidentally she gave him a deed to some Atlanta property, which she had some trouble in getting back, but that transaction does not ap pear in these suits. November 2,1891, Mr. McArthur endorsed four of these notes to Mr. Magee and assigned the mortgage to him which had been given by Mrs. McCormic. The latter has paid the first and last notes, but the first note assigned to him fell due August let last, and has not been paid. According to the terms of the mortgage, Mr. Ma gee has brought suit to declare the whole amount unpaid and the notes due, foreclosing upon the whole. He asks judgment for $20,000 and interest. The second suit, in which Mr. McAr thur and wife are defendants, is brought by Mr. Magee to foreclose on a mort gage given by Mr. McArthur October 13, 1891, for $10,500, for one year. The mortgage iB upon land in La Canada and elsewhere, and judgment is asked for the full amount and interest. Sent to Whittier. At 4:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon Enriquez Contreras was brought before Judge Smith for tbe purpose of staying proceedings in the assault to rape charge against him and send him to the Whit tier reform school. He waß held for trial Saturday for criminally assaulting little Tillie Contreras, 6 years old, and an information was filed the same day by the district attorney. The boy is not 14 years old yet, and it was thought best to send him to the reform school instead of the penitentiary. The boy waß wil ling to go, and after hearing some evi dence as to his age he was committed to that institution for two years. A Tangled Title. The suit of R. W. Abbott vs. Emma R. Means et al., to quiet the title to certain property on New High street near Franklin street, valued at $40,000, was decided by Judge Wade yesterday in favor of the plaintiff. The action was brought to enable Abbott to clear the property of encumbrances and hold it in trust for the Means heirs, three of whom are minors, Mrs. Emmaß. Means, the widow, having a life int°rest in it. The encumbrances amounted to $13,000, and came from street assessments, pav ing and other items. The property was so tied up by means of the different in terests that this method was taken to secure funds to clear off the encum brances. Court Notes. Judge Clark yesterday granted M. M. Dalton a divorce from Mrs. Mabel E. Dalton, on the ground of desertion. The case of Sevier vs. Whittington, a suit to recover damages for the taking up of a water pipe, was on trial before Judge Van Dyke and a jury yesterday. Walter Rogers, Oscar Brenemar, Al fred Jacobß, Joseoh P. Lodge and Pat rick Cronin, feeble minded children, were brought before Judge McKinley yesterday by Superintendent Walter Lindley of the Whittier reform school, where they have been, and on motion were committed to the home for feeble minded, at Glen Allen, Sonoma county. The case of Everson vs. The Wilming ton Transportation company waß dis missed in the United States court yes terday. Judge McKinley granted a divorce to M. Wilson from his wife, D.
