GEN. BUTLER'S CAREER. UKNKRAI. M'COOK'S OPINION OF OLD BEN. He Was Not a Soldier, bat Possessed High Administrative Powers and Ability in Many Ways. "I cannot give you much of an opinion about General Buthr," said General McCook yesterday to a Herald reporter in response to an inquiry, "for I never met him, and what I think of him Is based on hearsay evidence, Yotl ask what I think of him as a soldier. Ido not think he was a soldier; as far as I remember, he never commanded a line of battle or issued an order in the field. Of course what I know or think of him is based entirely on beareay evidence, as I never served with him, never really knew him, and only saw him on one oc casion, when we both took breakfast at Willard's hotel in Washington, he at one table and I at another. "As an administrative officer, his success at New Orleans putß his reputa tion beyond question. His administra tion of affairs in that city was produc tive of good. His hanging of Mumford for hauling down tbe flag at the custom house has been criticized, but that was tbe time for severe measures, and they resulted in much good throughout that part of tbe south. "He was essentially a governor, rather than a soldier, and as I have said, he seemed to have been born to take charge at New Orleans. Butler was a moat peculiar man but in all particulars Bhowed an able mind. He showed his erratic nature in his opinion of West Point graduates. In his talk and in his look he spoke in a most derogatory manner of Weat Point era, yet he always surrounded himself with them, if I remember right an over whelming majority of his subordinates being from that school. "I have always held a high opinion of General Butler, because of my complete confidence in the justness and correct ness of President Lincoln's judgment; Mr. Lincoln I knew relied very much on Butler's opinion, and frequently con sulted with him and asked his advice. As a politician, as an administrator, aa a lawyer, and as an able man Butler stands high, and it is not derogatory of him to Bay that he was not a soldier. He might have been if he had had the opportunity, but he served his country well and ably wherever he found him self." THE POLICE COURT. An Alleged Assault on a Little Girl. Other Notes. There was a large crowd at Justice Seaman's court, but it was all out' i le of the prisoners' dock. An alleged im moral assault case was to be heard, and every Beat was occupied. John Lorenzi was charged with attempting an out rage upon Annie Giavanellla, aged 4 years. The mother of the girl testified at length to the effect that the young man had frequently visited her house and had often taken tbe children out to play. It was alao shown by the testi mony that while the defendant waa quite a distance from the house with tbe child it was partly a public highway, and that she could at all timea see the young man and ber child from her house. Hia honor took the case under advisement. Lou Foo answered to his name when Clerk Bert Lewia asked him to stand up and answer to the charge of • petit lar ceny in stealing a calico dress. Foo said he was a good Chinaman, gave $100 bail and demanded to be tried by a jury of his peers. George Glenn, who was charged with defrauding a hotel out of $75, received a remittance from home yesterday, paid the bill, and the case waa dismissed. The hotel people being satisfied, evi dently, that no crime was committed, after they had received their money, THE SUPERVISORS. Proceeding)) at Yesterday's meeting- of the Board.

WILLIAM PAUL'S REGISTRATION. Judge Smith Holda the Grand Jury a Legal Body. Two Brief Opinions Received from the Supreme Court. Happenings Ycterday In the Courts. Caamaa F. and Guilty—Nutas <jf Cases Acted On. New Baits. Judge Smith yesterday overruled the demurrer in the case of William Paul, charged with illegal registration. The principal point which counsel raised was that the graL.d jury which returned the indictment against the defendant was illegally drawn and impaneled, the same poiuta having baen raised in other cases now pending in the 'superior court. Judge Smith, in overruling the de murrer, handed down the following opinion in the case : The motion to set aside, though cover ing much ground, may be condemned under three heads. First —That the indictment is not found, indorsed and presented as pre scribed in the code. Second —That the memberß of the grand jury who found the indictment were bo biaeed and prejudiced against the defendant as to prevent them from acting impartially in the matter. Third —That the grand jury waß an illegal body. As to the first objection, by an in epection of tbe indictment it seems to comply in every portion with sections 940, 943, 944, It was properly found, indorsed and-presented in accordance with those sections. Irregularities in selecting, summoning and impaneling the jury cannot be considered under that head. (See People vs. Southwell, 46 Oal. Z4l, People vs. Colby, 64 Cal. 37, and People vs. Hunter, 54 Cal. 65.) Second, that the grand jury was biased, etc. Under this head counsel contends that because the same grand jury that found the indictment in ques tion had previously indicted the defend ant for the same offense and it bad been set aside for informality and resubmit ted to them, that therefore they must have been convinced of his guilt at the time it was bo resubmitted, and there fore disqualified under sec 896 Penal Code, which provides for right of chal lenge for actual bias. But it must be remembered that this is tbe seme case first submitted to the grand jury, that there is no pretense of any bias against, defendant when the grand jury was im paneled, and it is plain that as a general rule challenges must be interposed at tbe time of impaneling a jury, and only when defendant has not been held to answer for the same offense can a chal lenge be interposed afterwards; but tbe challenge must be confined to tbe state of mind of the juror at the time the grand jury ia impaneled. Were it otherwise, it would result in an inquiry into all testimony and proceedings com ing before them after their organization, which would destroy the very object for which a grand jury is (impaneled. Besides, section 997 penal code, in providing for cases where indictments have been eet aside use thia lauguage, "unless it," meaning the court, "directs that the case bo re submitted to the same or another grand jury." See People vs. Henderson, 28 Cal., 465; People vs. Turner, 39 Cal., 370, and People vs. Colmere, 23 Cal., 639, which, though not deciding the Question, still throw much light on the point. Third —That the grand jury was an illegal body. Under this head connsel has advanced several causes. The view taken by the court renders it unneces sary to enter into a detailed considera tion of these. None of the causes urged by counsel under this head come within the letter or spirit of the causes enumerated in the code upon which a motion to set aside may be predicated. Tbe causes upon which a motion to eet aeide an in dictment may be based are specifically enumerated in section 995, penal code, and for these and none other can euch motion be sustained. People vs. South well, 46 Cal., 141; People vs. Schmidt, 64 Cal., 260; and many other cases to the same effect are found in our reports. Defendant's contention that tbe court had no right to order the resubmission of the case to tbe grand jury for the rea son that the case was not dismissed at the instance of defendant, but on mo tion of plaintiff, must be untenable. Proceedings before grand jurieß were never a bar to another or second prose cution. They are purely ex parte, and until trial begun before petit jury, no jeopardy attaches. So that the motion to act aside must be overruled, and it is bo ordered. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS. Two Brief Opinions Received Yesterday by the Deputy Clerk. Deputy Supreme Court Clerk Ash more received decisions in two cases yesterday. The opinions were very brief. In the case of Spence vs. Scott, the court says: "Upon further considera tion of this cause, after hearing in bank, we are satisfied with the conclusion which wbb reached by department one in its opinion filed September 2, 1892, and for reesons stated in said opinion, the judgment and order appealed from are affirmed." In tbe case of the people of the statu of California, reepondent, vs. John Moran, appellant, the court, in denying the motion for a reversal, says: "The clerk, by mistake, having failed to make a record of the filing of appel lant's brief in the foregoing action, it was not brought to the attention of tbe court upon the consideration of the merits of the appeal. Appellant now moves to set aside tbe judgment and grant a rehearing of the cause for that reason. Upon an examination of tbe specifications of error relied upon by appellant's brief, we find nothing to justify a reversal of the judgment. Let the motion be denied. A Fresh Boy. Yesterday afternoon Fred Kossner, a boy 16 yeara old, was before Judge Smith, charged with being an incorrig ible. Hie mother, a Mrs. Rice, was present and told the judge how bad the young fellow was. She wae unable to control him and he would neither go to school nor learn a trade. The boy was examined by tbe court and displayed a precocious depravity that very well justified the sentence of the court of three years at the Whittier school. The boy was perfectly self-possessed and was not at all affected by the evident dis tress of his mother. When Judge Smith committed him he coolly asked him if that was all, and when his moth er tried to get some expression of feel ing out of him at their parting the un gracious young fellow poshed her away and would not bid ber good bye. His callousness to any feeling waa remarked by everyone in the court room, and did not leave a very good impression upon those who law it. Gunman Guilty. Francisco Guzman was tried in de partment one of the superior court yes terday upon the charge of burglarizing the houee of Francisco Hernandez, at Azuea, on the night of October 21st laet. Hernandez went out of his house, and although he came back very soon, Guz man had in tbe meantime pushed open a window, took a valise and several arti cles and got away for the time. In the valise were two $10 bills. He was ar rested and has awaited his trial for some time. The facts was very clear against him and he was found guilty of burglary in the first degree. Tuesday next being fixed for tbe time for sentence. Court Notes. Judge Van Dyke yeaterday rendered judgment for $984.03 for plaintiff in the case of the Pacific bank va. Bath et al.; a suit upon a promissory note. In the case of Meyer Lewis vs. Wil liam O'Reilly; a suit upon a note for $2400; plaintiff's motion to exclude cer tain testimony was granted, and motion for a judgment on the pleadings was granted, the case not going to the jury. Judge Smith yesterday granted a di vorce to Henry Donnadieu from his wife, Mary Donnadieu, on the ground of adul tery. The case of J. F. Adama vs. Dr. David Burbank was finally concluded yesterday in Judge McKinley'a court, as far aa the taking of testimony was, concerned, and the caae went over until next Monday for argument. Judge Wade yeaterday granted a divorce to Mrs. Carrie A. Blackmer from her husband, J. K. Blackmer, the ground being failure to provide. The petition of Hattie I. Moss for the adoption of Clemence Felton, 15 years of age, was granted yeßterday by Judge Wade. New Suits Filed. Among the documents tiled yesterday in the office of the county clerk were the following: Petition of Walter L. Wotkyne et al. for the appointment of Walter L. Wot kyns as trustee in place of B. Marshall Wotkyns. S. Halle vs. F. 11. Barclay, suit for foreclosure of a mortgage for $2000. Crane company vs. Citizens' Water company, suit on a promissory note for $477.11. TWO INQUESTS. The Death of Mrs. Woodward—Freder ick Mow's Sudden Demise. Coroner Cates held an inquest yester day over the remains of Mrs. Eugenic 8. Woodward, who was accidentally burned to death at Sierra Madre on the previous day. The horrible accident occurred in the morning, while Mrs. Woodward was preparing breakfast, during which a coal-oil stove waa overturned. The oil from the etove immediately caught fire, which communicated to the unfortu nate lady's clothing. Her screams brought her husband to ber aaaiatance, who wrapped the bed clothing about her and succeeded in checking the flames. Medical aid waa summoned, but the Buffering woman died in a few hours. The remains were brought to this city yesterday and the funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from 840 South Hill street. Deceased was the wife of M. F. Wood ward, well knerwn in this city. Frederick Mow, a civil engineer and recently from Riverside, died suddenly in a lodging house on South Main street Friday evening. He was aged about 62 years and waa suffering from cancer in tbe stomach. Coroner Oat eg held an inquest yesterday and a verdict was ren dered accordingly. THE WOLD'S FAIR. The Meeting; Yeaterday of the Ladles' Auxiliary. The ladies' auxiliary to the world's fair committee met yesterday, and more than usual enthuaiasm waa manifested. Committees reported favorably on pro gress of the work. Mrs. Mary E. Hart, chairman of the historical committee, introduced Father Adam, who promised the committee, with the consent of the biahop, the 14 mission paintings. Mr. Barrows said the painting of Pio Pico could be loaned to the association, and Miss Kelso stated that selections from the Southern Cali fornia historical collection would be loaned, on guarantee of safety in trans mission. Miss Fish mentioned an ornithological display at Santa Monica, which could only be obtained by purchase. Mrs. Lanßing reported that the eilk culture association is making many beautiful souvenirs in the silk line, and that the work on the orange wood man tle is progressing.

A CRUSHED ACTOR. He Ask* Chief Glass to Get Him a Job. There was a abort eerio-comedy in one scene at the office of the chief of police yesterday morning. An actor, formerly connected with an "organization of talent" recently stranded, entered the door of the chief's office in an "Ingomar, the-barbarian-like" attitude, and after rehearsing his story of the wrongs of a cruel world, asked the chief to get him some employment, finally admitting that he had a trade, but did not have an opportunity to work in that line. Chief Glass replied that he was not runnin « an intelligence office. Exit crushed tragedian, left center door, calling down the vengeance of the "beavings" upon the world in general.

Mr. Amos Eddy of Compton and His Alfalfa Narrative. A Crop Which Yields Ten Tons to the Acre in a Year. Wo Backs His Statement with an An davlt Which will Be Framed and Exhibited with the Hay. Mr. Amos Eddy of Compton aenda in to the chamber of commerce, for tbe world's fair, seven cuttings of alfalfa which make an aggregate of 21 feet in length. The specimens represent re spectively seven months' growth ; and for fear the astonishing growth be doubted, Mr. Eddy accompanies it with the following affidavit: State of California, county of Los An geles; Amos Eddy, first being sworn, deposes and says that be is a farmer residing at Compton, county of Lob An geles, Btate of California, and is the owner and occupant of a ranch of said place, consisting of about 27 acres and has resided toereon for tbe past 20 years and cult: vated the same; that the seven packages of alfalfa hay here ex hibited, were grown and raised by him on said ranch and are specimens and samples of each of tha seven cuttings during the year 1892, respectively, on the same land during said year and are a fair average of the whole field of about 18 acres; that the field as aforesaid yielded, for the seven cuttings during said year, about 10 tonß to the acre, without any irrigation whatever. That the bales or packages here exhibited are only a fair average aa to quality of the crops cut in this neighborhood; that the soil is alluvial, made by the overflow of the Los Angeles river, in years ago.

It took one of tbe 40-inch display jars to hold them. They will be processed and cent forward with the balance of tbe exhibits to Chicago. C. M. Wells writes from San Francisco that tbe spaces had been* virtually al lotted for California's exhibit of fruits in the horticultural building, and being very unsatisfactory tbe supposition is tbat a reallotment will be made and the space for the citrus exhibit will be as signed in bulk, thus giving a better op portunity for displaying the citrus fruits. He also writes that the rules governing quantities are ready, awaiting the approval of the board, and will be out inside of a month. Tbe different organizations have been waiting on these rules for tbe lust six months, as they will determine materially what each in dividual will be required to prepare in tbe special departments. At the laet meeting of the state com mission it was decided to hold a meeting of three of the members within a month in Los Angeles to pass upon the southern exhibit. In consequence of thia meeting all persons having world's fair goods that are ready will report im mediately to their various organizations. This, of||course,tepplies only to goods that are unperishable. Those prepared in Los Angeles county to be aent to tbe chamber of commerce. It is desired to make an exhibit of photos of ranch life. All those fiehing to make euch exhibits will confer a favor by sending such photos to the Los Angeles county world's fair head quarters. Thoße desirous of having their dwellings exhibited in the revolv ing album will confer with W. H, Hill of Pasadena. Tbe United States government has made another demand upon the South ern California World's Fair association for aamples of tobacco raised in this district, to be placed in the government display of tobacco raieed in the United States. Specimens of cotton are also requested. Parties having samples of either product will confer a favor by sending such to the chamber of com merce. . Citrus growers want to bear in mind that there ia a round trip ticket offered to the world's fair for the largest citrus exhibit, quality considered, by one in dividual. It is desirous to make the decorations of the California etate building in Chi cago of as much of the native foliage ac is possible. Persons having quantities of grasses that can be cured and retain their color will oblige the committer by communicating with them relative to tbe matter. I " WORTH A GUINEA A BOX."
