ONE CABLE ROAD SUIT ENDED.
Judge Ross Dismisses the St. Louis People's Complaint. Yesterday's Developments in the Wong Ark Trial. Proceedings In the Various Department* Yesterday—Nutea In Ca*e* Which Were on Trial — Mew Salt* Filed. In the United Stateß circuit court yeaterday Jndge Rosa dismissed the suit Of the St. Louis Railroad company, the Fourth National bank of St. Louis and the Boatmen's bank against tbe Pa dfic Railway company for lack of jurisdic tion. The opinion handed down is an exhaustive analysis of the suit brought by the St. Louis Railway company, and his finding*) in this cape apply to the other snitn in which the Pacific Railway company was made defendant. Stripped of its technical phrasingß and embellish ments, the salient points of the opinion are as follows: This is a motion to dismiss the suit for want of jurisdiction made after the filing of an answer to the merits, but be fore trial. Tbe answer, however, also denied the jurisdiction of the court. It is well settled that the circuit courts have no jurisdiction except such ac is conferred by the constitution and laws of the United Statea, and that to bring a caae within it the jurisdiction must be affirmatively shown. The controversy between the parties to the present suit grows out of con tract, and the asserted jurisdiction of this court is founded solely on the diverse citizenship of the parties. The complaint alleges that the plaintiff is, and at all times therein mentioned has been, acorporationdulyorganized under the laws of the state of Missouri, and a citizen and an inhabitant thereof, hav ing its principal place of business in the city o! St. Louis, of that state; that the defendant is, and at all times mentioned in the complaint has been, a corpora tion duly organized under the laws of the state of Illinois, and a citizen of tbat state, having its principal place of busi ness, however, at the city of Los An geles, state of California, and iB and has been, during the time mentioned in the complaint, an inhabitant of the city of Los Angeles, etate of California; that the defendant corporation was organized for the purpoee of doing business in Loa Angeles city, the chief object of wbich waa and is the construction, ex tension and operation of street car lines, which purposes were expressed in ita articles of incorporation; that there is and at all times mentioned in the com plaint has been a statute of California providing for corporations doing busi ness in this state, designating some per son iv. thia state on whom process may be served, which waß done by the Pacific Railway company. . . . Nevertheless the court holds that this designation of a person to re ceive process does not make a corpora tion organized without the state of Cali fornia a citizen or a resident of the etate of California within the meaning of the act of congress defining tbe jurisdiction of circuit courts of the United States. . . . Inasmuch as it is provided that where the jurisdiction is founded only on the fact tbat the action is be tween citizens of different states, euit shall be brought only in the district of the residence of either plaintiff or de fendant, and aa this district is not the district of the residence of either the plaintiff, the St. Louiß Railway company, wbich is a corporation of the state of Missouri, or of the defendant, tho Pacific Railway company, which is a corpora tion of the state of Illinois, this court has no jurisdiction in the controversy between them, and for want of jurisdic tion thia suit is dismissed. Wong Ark's Trial. Nothing new was developed in the Wong Ark case yeßterday. The prose cution rested its case and the testimony of witnesses for the defense began. The defense placed eeveral witnesses, all of whom were Chinese, on the stand in tbe afternoon, but tbe only point of interest was in the testimony of Low Fon. On cross-examination be testified that at the time of the shooting he was en gaged in putting up the shutters to the windows, preparatory to closing his store for tbe night. Immediately on hearing the report of the pistol he looked in the direction from whence it came and saw tbe woman Fook Moy standing on the porch lustily blowing a police whistle. He did not see the mur dered woman. This was in direct contradiction to the deposition of Fook Moy, who swore that when the shooting occurred ehe was lying on the bed,- and upon hearing tbe snot dressed herself and went to the woman's assistance. The Chinese witnesses were all ex amined through an interpreter, in the face of the fact that they understand English and speak it fluently. Court Notes.

Bauer came in last night from hie mines in the Golden Rule district. He brought with him a few pounds of rock from a new find he made upon the ground of one of his claims. He found a few small pieces of float a few days ago, and as it looked well be followed it up and found a ledge six feet wide of lead ore, which is pronounced by those who have seen it as being one of the biiigeet prospects i l the connty. Assays made give a result of 84 ounces silver and 41 per cent lead per ton. There are eaid to be a thousand tons in sight and the ore is being Backed and piled up for shipment. B. F. Packard has returned from Los Angeles, where he sold 175 head of beef steers from his range on the line. He did well with them. He will leave in a day or two for the Pan Handle, where he will secure pasturage for a large num ber of feeders. Buffalo Bill and a party of hunters are in Flagstaff fitting out for a trip to the Grand cafion. [Tucson Btsr, November 17th. Another accideot occurred on the Southern Pacific near Dragoon summit last night. An engine ran into a hand car and played sad havoc with it. A Mr Blott was the man injured. At this writing it is thought that Mr. Blott'e limbs will have to be amputated, but it is hoped that he may recover without that. Engineer Corbett was also in jured Tuesday night, but not seriously. James Finley, tbe prominent mining man, is at Harahaw engaged in superin tending the shipment of the Huntington mill to the owners of tbe Antelope mine at Tucson. The mill will be taken by freight wagons to Tucson. Thie ia the same mill which has ground out so much wealth for tbe Hermoaa. [Prescott Courier, Novomber 14th ] Quite a lively chloriding camp is springing up on Groom creek, about a mile and a half from Groom Creek sta tion. Free milling gold ore which aver agea $25 per ton ia being taken from eeveral claims in that vicinity, and aa tbe ore ia very easily mined and the total cost of hauling is but $6 50 per ton, it leaves quite a fair profit for the miner. J. H. Drew came in from the William son valley country Saturday, bringing with him aome very fine specimens of lithographic atone. Deputy Sheriff Rybon returned Satur day evening, bringing with bim Indian Jim, who is suspected of having mur dered Michael Donovan, whose body wae found in the Verde valley some days ago.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 19, 1892. YIELDED AS OTHERS HAVE DONE. Lecherous Old King's Excuse Justice Austin Gives Him a Long: Yesterday* Happening;* In the Police Conrts — Matter's Clothing; — Mr*. Arnold Honorably Dis charged— Note*. Justice Austin's court room was packed yesteiday afternoon by a motley mob, eager to get a glimpse of tbe mor bid minded Walter £. King, and to hear his sentence on the charge of a misde meanor, in tampering with Emma Moore and Florence Watson, both under the age of 16 years. When asked the usual question if he had anything to say why sentence should not be pronounced, the aged, debased fellow stood up and said: "Yea; may it please the court, I have a lawyer engaged, and —" Judge Austin—The attorney in your case haß made motions for a suspension of judgment, also for a new trial, both of which have '>een overruled. The prisoner then mounted the wit ness stand, saying: *'I have a great deal to say, your honor, but I shall not occupy your attention very long. lam not guilty of debauch ing little girls, and—" The court —You are not charged with that; I suppose you have sufficient in telligence to understand the nature of the charge. The prisoner—"Yes, your honor; lam charged with a misdemeanor, but I am no more guilty than those girls. Tbey aie girls in years, but women ia devel opment and in knowienge. I never en ticed.those two girls to my room. They came there with other girls. They were perfectly willing to be fondled, as tbeir evidence shows. I did not have to speak to them a second time ; they eas ily submitted—and I simply yielded, as other men have done. At the conclusion of his defense Jus tice Austin imposed a tine of $250 or 250 days in jail. King stood still a moment, as if scarce ly realizing the sentence, then sat down without showing any emotion. He was taken back to jail. At a very early hour yesterday morn ing ex-Sheriff Martin Aguirre saw a man place a bundle by the side of a palm tree near the Arcade depot, as if he in tended to hide it. The fellow ran away ac soon as he saw that he was observed. Tbe bundle so surreptitiously hidden waa pent to tbe central police station. It contained a suit of clothing and other wearing ap parel. In a pocket was a letter ad dressed to Conrad Matzer, who is em plowed at Ebinger'e bakery, working until late of evenings. Detectives Auble and Benaon called upon Matzer and aeked bim if he had lost anything. He replied that he had not, but, npon going to bis room on South Spring street, near Sixth street, be excitedly said : "Mine Gott; everything ia gone, and $10 in the pockets, too!" All of the clothing wae found in tbe bundle, ex cepting an overcoat, which the burglar wore; he also took tbe $10 and presum ably the next train. MRS. ARNOLD HONORABLY DISCHARGED. About 3 o'clock yesterday morning Officer Bates and Special Officer Ford saw a man walking along First street, near Vine, carrying a large clock. Tbey naked him the time, and he replied that it waa not running, but that he waa taking it to a watch maker'a shop to have it fixed. The officers replied that it was rather early yet, and suggested tbat he go to the central police station and wait until the jewelers opened, or rather until the justice coui t opened. On being taken to tbe police station be was charged with burglary. His name is Louis 0. Tucker. Later in the day Mrß. Belle Arnold was arrested on a similar charge made by Mrs. Mitchell. Mrs. Arnold formerly kept a restaurant and Tucker was her chief cook. The restaurant failed. She statea that she loaned Tucker a large am ount of table linen, silverware, etc., for the purpoae of atart ing up another restaurant. Tucker, it aeeme, was hiaownbeatcustomer—in the wine and beer orders—and consequently tbere waa another failure. Thursday night, late, Tucker called at Mra Arnold'a rooma and informed her that he had placed the borrowed articlea in a saloon on Firat atreet in the vicinity of "Oape Horn," and advised her to go and get them. • He then, it seems, returned to the restaurant, smashed everything in sight, poured gasoline around recklessly, took the big clock and left. When Mra. Arnold called at theßaloon designated and took the things away she waß somewhat surprised on being put under arrest. Mrs. Mitchell also swore to the warrant charging Tucker with burglary, atating tbat her premises had been entered and the prop erty taken out. The article* taken are known to belong to Mra. Belle Arnold, at least herself and Tucker co etate, and the circumstancea point that way. W. T. Williams, esq., who had known Mr. Arnold and wife in Ventura county, appeared aa her coun sel in Justice Austin's court, when the case wae called later in the day. Sev eral witnesses were examined, hut noth ing criminating Mra. Arnold waa ad duced and, on motion of the district at torney, ehe waa honorably discharged. Tbe complaining witness, Mrs. Mitch ell, gave her own residence as that of the Alameda houee. The case of Tucker will come np today. Captain Roberta of the police department haa known Mr. and Mra.

A fall cutaway coat was stolen from the room of Max Lowenthal yesterday. Detectives Auble and Benson found the coat in a second-hand store on Los An geleß Btreet. John Dillon and Harry McDonnell, boys, were before Justice Austin yester day charged with destroying 250 feet of curbing and pavement on Thirtieth street, near Grand avenue. The case went over until next Monday. Justice Owens' court waa occupied throughout yeaterday in the trial of three Chinamen, arrested by Sergeant Jeffries and a squad of officers, charged with dealing lottery.

THE DESERT TO BLOOM. Details of an Irrigation Company Near The St. Louis Globe-Democrat of No- I vember 3d Baya: "One of the most gigantic irrigation echemea ever ad vanced in the United Statea ia being per fected near Yuma, in Arizona. The canal ia now being built and will be 126 miles in length, 120 feet in width and 12 in depth. The water will be taken out of the east bank of the Colorado river, and will give fertility to millions of acrea of land heretofore belonging to the arid waste known as tho Colorado desert. An immense volume of water cornea down the Colorado at all times of the year and there is no neceasity of dams or reservoirs to hold a reserve, yet, not withstanding the advantages no at tempt baa ever been made to use it for irrigation purposes. The land ia now covered wi h a waste of cactus and aage brush, but every where water toucbea it it ia pe culiarly fertile, and especially ia it adapt ed to tbe raiaing of tropical fruits. The Sonora orange has been tried success fully, and though it doea not grow well iv Southern California, thousands of acres will be planted here. The irriga tion project ia in the handa of capitalists from Denver and New York. Tbe water will not run part of the time, as in other canals, but all the time, and it will prac tically amount to changing the courae of part of the river, from which branch . ditchea will lead.
