THE FIRST-STREET WIDENING.
The Supreme Court Settles the Case. Ah Yung Offers No Witnesses iv His Trial for Murder. The Trip Hammer Case — Hrs. House's DamagM Suit—Mrs Brown Nuu. suited—New Cases Filed. Court Notes. Supreme Court Clerk Ashmoro yes terday received a short opinion in the case of the City of Los' Angeles, appel lant, vs. Alice Dehail et al., aflitmiuf the judgment of the superior court. It was au action, says the opinion, to appropriate to the use of the plaintiff as a public street certain iota oi the de fendants under proceedings taken by virtue of the act of March 0, 1889. The complaint Bet forth an ordinance for the widening of Firat street from Los Angeles to Alamsda streets, adopted by the plaintiff July 8, 1889, and also the various eteps taken by the municipality under thac ordinance, and alleges that a portion of the land required for the widening of the street is tho property of the defendant, Alice Dehail, aud that the commissioners appointed under the ordinance determined that stie would be damaged by the improvement in the gum of $3718 50; that this amount of money was tendered to her with a re quest that she execute a deed for tbe land to the city. She refused to accept tbe money or make tbe deed, and prayed judgment for the condemnation of the land upon the payment to the defendants, or into court for their benefit, of the amount of compensation therefor to which they are entitled. A demurrer to this com plaint was sustained, and from the judgment rendered thereon in favor of tbe defendants the plaintiff appealed. The opinion states that in the case of Dehail vs. Morford (05 Cal., 457) it was held that the ordinance under which these proceedings were taken did not confer upon the city any jurisdiction to make the improvement contemplated thereby, and it is very evident that if the ordinance was ineufficent to give to the city any jurisdiction to make the improvements, the commissioners ap- Eointtd under that ordinance would aye no authority to determine the amount of money which the owners of the land to be taken should accept for its conveyance to tbe city, and that the owners can not be compelled to ac cept that amount or to make a convey ance of their land. The action cannot be upheld as a pro ceeding to condemn the land inqueßtion under the power of eminent domain or by virtue of the provisions of eectiou 18 of the act of March 6, 1809. Before such proceedings can be instituted it is nec essary tnat the municipality shall have passed a valid ordinance for the widen ing of the street. As the ordinance in question conferred no authority to make the improvement, it caunot be used as the basis of any action tor condemnation of the land sought to be included in the iui imminent. NO DEFENSE PUT IN. Ah Tung Goes t» tho Jury Without a Statement from a Wituesa. Tbe Ah Yung murder trial before Judge Smith, in which tbe Chinaman is accused of the brutal murder of the young Mexican boy Fernando Quijada, reached the arguments late yesterday afternoon. The curious spectacle waa presented when tbe defense was reached of no de fense being made. Mr. Uuthtie, coun sel for the defendant, rested his case without the introduction of a single witness, evidently preferring to risk his client's neck to the reasonable doubt provided by law than to any statements that he might make or witnesses for him. During the morning the prosecution introduced additional testimony to prove tbe murder of the boy, and the identification of hia hat and basket found under a atairway in the kitchen of the house where the murder was committed. It waa also brought out more clearly that tbe Ohinaaaau seen running away from the scene of the tragedy bad jumped over a fence in close proximity to the water closet wheie the remains were fonnd. In the afternoon Ah Hing, one of the Chinamen who went to the houte after it was reported vaguely that a China man had been killed, testified in regard to hie visit there in company with Ah Suen and Ah Duck. He had not found anything at first, although they searched tbe house and followed the track of the man who jumped the fence clear to some Chinese vegetable gardens out Macy Btreet, near the river. When they came back he discovered the remains in the cesspool. When he found it was not Ah Yung who had been murdered he and hie companions abandoned tbe search. The prosecution rested, and the jury waa taken to Chinatown by the court to inspect the premises where tbe murder occurred. After they returned the de fense rested and arguments were begun. Horace Appel made the opening argu ment for the prosecution, making a clear presentation of the chain of eveute Burrounding the defendant. He will be followed this morning by Mr. Outbrie, for the defense. Tbe court room wae crowded with spectators during the day. Illegally Dumped Out. Mra.

Mrs. Wag-nor and llor Suit Against tlie Fulton Iron Wurki. Another day was taken up yesterday in department six before Judgo George E. Otis, sitting for Judge McKinley, in the trial of the damage suit for $3000 brought by Mrs. Lucy Wagner and her husband against the Fulton Iron Works. A clerical error waa discovered ia the complaint, which stated that the plain tiff had spent }25,0()0 on the property alleged to have been damaged by the j irring caused by the trip hammers of the iron wotks. It wbb amended to read 12500. M. C. Fordham, who lives in tho vicinity of tho works, was the first wit ness and said he had suffered incon venience frgin the noise and soot com ing thcrefrSm. Theelderlv husband of the plaintiff, Cornelius Wagner, testified that he could never lie down on his lounge with comfort, owing to the noise from the work. Hia health had been impaired by it, aud he had left thero by advice of a physician. He never expected to fully recover his health. The noise had also affected hia hearing. The plaintiff, Mra. Lucy Wagner, a beaithy-looking, matronly lady, told her tale of woe to the jury, the burthen of which was that her nerves bad been destroyed by the boiler-making noisea at the factory; that she was obliged to take opiates to counteract the terrible strain to her nerves. The trip hammers jarred her house so that it cracked the plastering, made the dishes dance on the table, and the soot from the chimney stack covered her clothes so that she was obliged frequently to take them from the line and wash them again. Upon cross-examination Mrs. Wagner said that the noise from the railroad locomotives near by and the switching of trains did not disturb ber peace of mind at all because Bhe was used to it she supposed. It was only the iron works noises that affected her nerves. When the plaintiff rested the defense wanted to take the court and jury down to the iron works aud let them inspect the premises, but the court refused to allow it to be done, holding, that necessarily the jurors could not go there without im bibing new evidence. If it was possibla to file the trip hammers in evidence and bring them into court, he would allow it, hut as that did not appear to be feas ible, they would proceed with the case. The defendants were granted permission to amend their answer by making it more specific, and tho case went over until this morning. Non-Suit Granted. Yesterday moruiug, ia the $20,000 damage suit broug'it by Mrs. Kate Crown against the Teraple-etroet cable railroad, a non suit was granted by Judge Shaw upon motion of the de fendant's counsel. The court held that tho death of Mr. Brown, who was caught by the machinery in the pit at the cud ot the line, was not due to any careless ness on the part of the company. Tvs unfortunate man was caught in mmc manner that can never be explained. Court Notes. In the ca3o of Claud L. Hill, charged with embezzlement, demarreta were presented upon both informations, and continued to Monday for further argu ment. An iuforrtution waa filed by the dis tiict attorney against Charles Peterson, charging him with receiving stolen property, and December 15 was set for his arraignment. The property alleged to have been received is a pistol belong ingjto L. B. Cohn, and that it waa re ceived from Joe Belliele November 20. A 30 days' stay of execution was granted by Judge Shaw yeateiday in the damage suit of Mra. Bridget Kelly vs. The Sunset Telegraph and Telephone company. Upon motion of the plain tiff's counsel, J. Marion Brooke, tbe jury waa called in and asked if tbe verdict of $500 damages for plaintiff was correct, giving an affirmative answer. The case of S. 0. Clematis va. The Cu camonga Fruitland company was tried before Judge Van Dyke yesterday and submitted on briefs to be filed.

""V LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 15, 1892, THE ANGELS SWAT THE SPHERE And Do the Greater Part of It in One Inning, While the Han Joses Could Not Hit Together. The Former Win the Uume by a Henre of 6 to 3-Harper Hit Hani In tho Fuurtli lulling —Ama- tour Games. United effoits at the bat are always productive of runs, if it is kept up long enough, and yesterday's game of base hall at Athletic park waa a beautiful ex emplification of the valuo of concerted action. It was a peculiar game in many respects. Harper held his opponents uOn'ti without a hit for the first three innings; and then they solved tbe enigma of his curves and won the game out before they could ba headed off. On the other hand, tho visitors did their batting at odd intervals when no practical good could follow, except in one instance. Then Denny placed one for two bags, with two men on bases, and evened up matters a little. The San Joses made their first run in the third inning. With one hand out Everott placed a fly ball down on tho foul lino. It dropped about a foot out side, but the umpire allowed the batter to stay at Becond base. Djoley waa an easy out, and so should Clark have been, but Stafford threw low and Everett scored on the error. The Angels then had a streak of old time batting energy. McCauley hit the first ball that started toward the plate aud made a clean double. While Tred way was negotiating a bate on balls the old gentleman stole third base, and Glenalvin's tri-eocker drove both in ahead of him. Lytic hit safely and scored the captain, stole second base, took third on a sacrifice by Baldwin, and scored on Knell's hit. The visitors got their last two tallies in the fifth inning. Dooley sent one over Brown's head for two bases, Clark waited for four wild ones, and then Denny waited until he got one to suit him, and sent it far enough to Rain sec ond base, scoring Dooley and Clark. McCauley and Tredway both scored in the seventh inning. McCauley hit for a single and Tredway followed with a triple, registering his own tally on a wild pitch. The ecore: LOS ANGELES.

From the reply the following extracts are taken: My experience in such mattera haa been quite large, and it ia certainly a fact that smelters are not desirable neighbors and that they are not likely to increase the value of your land. It seems to me that if the city is desirous of haviug smelters located so close, that they Bhould appoint a commission to as sess the damages to surrounding prop erty or let the smelter move further out, and buy enough land to command the situation; of rourso, much depends SWATLETS.

The heavy fumes from the smelter will certainly reach your place, if only one-half mile away, as though it settle's, quite quickly, nt.ll it drifts along for some distance before it finally settles These fumes consist of many poisonous ingredients, fuch as arsenic, antimony, lead, zinc, sulphur and sometimes, In case of roasting, the different chlorine gases and their combinations, which are, as we all know, very injurious. I think, however, of late years they have arranged condeneing chambers, so as to condense most of these obj-ctionable gases; hut in any event I should not welcome the erection of large smelting works to near my home. NEEDHAM KNOCKED OUT. BILLY SMITH OF BOSTON DID THE BUSINESS. Danoy Was Game, hut His Opponent Was Sly and Fought Liko Fury. The Victor Kepeat » edly Hissed. San Francisco, Dec. 14.—Danny Need ham, ex champion welter-weight, and Billy Smith of Boston engaged in a glove contest for a $2000 purae at the Pacific Athletic club tonight. There was a preliminary contest between Dan Cook and Tom Gorman, novices of this city. It was to have been a 10-round affair, but Cook was knocked out in the sixth round. Needham and Smith appeared as soon as the preliminary contest was finished, and the battle began. Smith scored the first blow, a light right arm hook on the jaw, but was hissed for chok ing Needham in a clinch. Smith fought very freely, Needham not having warmed up. Clinches were frequent and Smith took every possible ad vantage. Needham scored several hard lefts jabs in Smith's face in the third. The Bostouian took a great many chances in his anxiety to wind up the fight quickly. Both men countered heavily in the fourth. Smith fougtit vicioutly and made the pace pretty hot for Meedham, wuo was forced to back ground fre quently. Needham landed a s.ckeuer over Smith's heart aud swung a hard left ou the neck. Needham stopped a rush with o. slilf hah-ttrm blow ou tho neck. Smith was bleeding at the mouth. The fifth and sixth rounds were marked by hard countering. Most of Smith's right swingi lauded on Need ham's ribs, Out he closed tlie sixth with a leit s.iing ou Needham's fi-ce, stagger ing the latter. i'lie seventh was a hard round. Smith having a trifle tho best of it. iie had a lump over his left eye. Needham'e lip Wab bleeding. In the eighth Smith nearly dropped Needham with a left in the mouth. In tbe ninth Neednam sent him to a silting position with a right upper cut. The latter rtta'iated by knocking Netd ham down with a right. He had Need ham groggy, and held to him, slugging 1 with his right on the bead and taking every advantage. Needham waa sent down again, but drove Smith back with two savage left drivea that landed through luck on Smith'a jaw. Need ham was in bad shape at tne end of this round. Iv the tenth the men came together iv a hot rally. The referee waa acci dentally Bent aprawling. Smith threw Needham, but the latter, though shaky, came back burd on Smith's nose, which bled freely. It was give and take, with tho chances in favor of Smith, who was much the fresher of the two. Iv the eleventh there was great coun tering with lef 18. Smith was strong aud his right hooks vary forcible. Neeuhain was fighting an uphiil battle with much ' determination. Smith's eyea were clos ing- | Iv the twelfth round Smith slowed up ; somewhat and Needham rested. , In the thirteenth Smith rushed, but Needham stopped him. Smith got in two rights on tbe heart and one on the wind tnat ataggered Needham. Smith took every advantage, aa from the start, and he attempted to uppercut Needham when he dropped to hia kneea with a right-hander. The spectators shoated in indignation. In the fourteenth Smith Btarted in I like a whirlwind, Blugging with right \ and left, giving Needham no chance to make a atand. He knocked Needham down twice, and then sent him flat on hia face with a righthand uppercut. Needham waa lifted and borne to bis corner by hia Becouda, while Smith i jumped lightly from the ring after hav ing fought almost incessantly for nearly t an hour. Creacent City Races.

Sir Walter Scott is an example of a great man, who, so far as we can judge, enjoyed paying tho penalties of his greatness, even in his hour of death. Ho was great enough, but then ho was that kind of a man, and the circumstances among which he lived were favorable. That was before the day of the penny post, of the electric telegraph, of rail ways and of the interviewer, und in his, prime liS lived at Abbotsford, which is equivalent nowadays to saying that ho lived at Joppa. He seems to have been singularly free from the penalties of greatness, which have enormously in creased sinca the Wizard of tho North went homo, und such of them its came in his way ho seems to have heartily eu- joyed. He appears now and then to have relished being turned into a rare show, and to being pointed at wherever ho went as Wa.ter Scott. Indeed this be ing poiutetl at seems to have been rel ished by mauy men whose greatness was undoubted. Thackeray seems some times almost to have resented not being pointed at.—All the Year Round.
