IS SHE SANE?
A Strange Story Told by
Letter.
THE POLICE COMMISSIONERS.
Mattel's Discussed by that Hon
orable Body Yes
terday.
An extraordinary communication was
handed to the Herald last evening
signed by Carrie A. Petchner. A lady
passing in the vitinity of the Girl's Home
was suddenly accosted by a strange-look
ing woman, with disheveled dress and
wearing no shoes, who thrust into her
hand the note, with a frantic request that
she should get it published.
The note was addressed to "Mr.
Wright," evidently meaning Officer
Wright of the Hnmane Society. The
writer begs him to let the public know of
tho unwarrantable detention from which
she is suffering at the Home. She says
that she was induced to go there on the
understanding that she was to remain
only a day or two, and that now she has
been there over a month. "Mrs. Wat
son has been very kiud," she says, "but
what right has she to detain me? The
courts have not decided that I am insane,
and my detention here must be illegal."
She tells a long and confused story about
a step-mother who drove her away from
an elegant home in Riverside, against
whom she has a lawsuit pending which
demands her immediate attention. It is
the plan of this stepmother, she says, to
keep her away from home long enough
to cause her to be disowned, and that ad
vantage had been taken of an illness,
during which she lost control of her
mind, to have her brought to Los Ange
les. The note is decidedly incoherent,
and the writer can hardly be sup
posed to be entirely sane, but the state
ments which are made about an illegal
detention are such as to render some sort
of an investigation advisable.
POLICE PATRIARCHATE.
Puissant Patres Provide lor the
Pavement-Pounders.
The concord at the regular meeting of
the Police Commissioners yesterday was
pleasant to look upon. No reference was
made to the police muddle or the at
tempted action of the Council on Mon
day last regarding the same, except an
occasional fling at the Messrs. Book and
Sinabaugh by the Chief in a bantering
way. But it was observed that the work
of the Commission hinged on those
matters which were complained of in the
remarkable.Cabal or Star Chamber re
port of the Investigating Committee of
the Council.
The Commission opened its delibera
tions with Chief Cuddy and President of
the Council Humphreys present, and
Mayor Workman in the chair. The cases
of the saloon men were first taken up.
A petition was received from a number of
residents on New High street, complain
ing that the Acme Saloon, at No. 201,
was a disreputable place, frequented by
fallen women aud thair "Macs," who
made night hideous with oaths, wild
veils and shrieks of maudlin laughter.
The place is kept by Peterson & Lawlor,
and the Chief was directed to suppress
the female side of it. Frank H. Ceding,
of 40 Wilmington street, cor. of Jackson,
petitioned to have the revocation of his
license rescinded. Action was postponed.
The applications for licenses by Omelin
eau oi Guytano, New Post Office
Building, and J. G. Mailings, 318
South Main street, were laid over
for one week. The application of
Toal A. Prouts for a saloon at 123 Requena
street was denied, and that of George
Odell, at 17 Commercial street, granted.
The usual reports of Captain Loomis
and Sergeants Harris and Davis, stated
that all was quiet in the city, but
that gambling games were running.
The Chief stated no games were run
ning, except now and then a poker game.
Upon mention by the Mayor the case
of Carrie Abbott, whose "Mat" will not
let her reform, was referred to Police
Matron Watson for investigation. The
Chief thought that Book could tell all
about it, aB he has been about these peo
ple a good deal of late.
The Chief at this juncture asked for an
opinion of the Board regarding the prose
cution of women of the town. He thought
that if they were driven from the local
ities in which they now congregate and
are fairly sequestered that they would
distribute throughout the respectable
portion of the city and in mansion houses,
and fill the thoroughfares with street
walkers. He stated that since his ad
ministration and the sequestration of
these women that only two cases of men
being robbed by them had occurred,
owing to the surveillance kept over them
by the police. This surveillance would
be impossible if they were driven here,
there and everywhere. The Chief as
sured the Board that whatever it sug
gested would be carried out to the letter.
The Mayor said that Alameda street
had become most disreputable and that
Mr. Newmark, who owns property on
the street, had stated to him that he
wiched someone would burn it down.
Ths Mayor was emphatic in the ex
pression "that the "Macs" should be
driven from Ithe city. [A "Mac" is a
hanger-on or lover of fallen women and
lives off their wages. The name is a cor
ruption of the French Macquereau—and
at home is a sort of favored all
round man of work, and friend.]
Mr. Humphreys thought that the mat
ter should be left to the judgment of the
Chief and the City Attorney in proceed
ing against this class of criminals. The
law should be enforced as far as possible,
but as the city ordinances conflicted with
tbe State law, the Police Department
should not be held responsible
for the inffeectiveness of the laws.
He moved that the Chief and
City Attorney be instructed to take such
steps under the law to rid the city of
houses of prostitution, of "Macs" and all
such disreputable characters. Carried.
He also moved that the Council in
struct the City Attorney to prepare
an amendment to be added
to Ordinance 224, making more
stringent the provisions relating
to houses of prostitution and "Macs,"
and defining absolutely the authority of
the police over such criminals under both
the city ordinances and the State law.
i Carried.
I John Zitter's saloon, 12H Third street,
wa • complained of as disorderly and he
was cited to appear before the Board at
its next meeting,
The Chief was instructed to order his
men to report saloons on their beats re
sorted to by disreputable women, and to
prosecute to the fullest extent of the law
these places, the women and their
"Macs." Adjourned.
A SON AMD HEIR.
Mrs. Ertffith Presents Her Hus
band a 12-Pound Boy.
Mr. G. J. Griffith was certainly born
under a lucky star. Blessings of all
sorts crowd upon him, thick and fast.
His ventures of whatever sort have been
prolific beyond comparison in their rich
returns. Something over a year ago this
lucky and plucky Angeleno, it will be re
membered led to the hymeneal altar one
of tbe most charming young ladies of
tlie Angel City, in the person of Miss
Mesmer, the daughter of one of
the oldest and most respected of
the citizenß who have been
instrumental in building up Los Angeles.
Mr. Louis Mesmer of course is referred
to. And now comes the climax to the
great number of blessings which have
have been so lavishly, but meritoriously
meted out to Mr. G. J. Griffith. Yes
terday morning Mrs. Griffith presented
her husband with a splendid twelve
pound boy. All day yesterday the happy
father of this great big bouncing boy was
the recipient of many felicitations
at the hands of his hundreds
of friends in the city, for Mr.
Griffith is decidedly what is known as a
popular gentleman. Mr. Mesmer came
in too for his due share oi the compli
ments as the grandfather to such a
splendid boy. The Herald desires to
join with all the other friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Griffith in "wishing for a continual
outpouring of blessings of all sorts upon
this young household and particularly
upon the head of the little stranger, who
is hereby heartily welcomed into the
world. May all his days go unclouded
by.
AT THE GRAND.
Big Houses Ureet Mrs. LonEsuore-
Potts at (he Urand.
Mra. Potts' reappearance in this city has
inaugurated a different order of things,
and if feminine adaptability continues to
develop as it has done of late the proper
sphere of man will soon be the wash
house or the nursery. This is said quite
seriously. There was a time when lovely
women was glad to follow humbly in the
steps of her lord and carry the camp ket
tle and the missionary oven. Her very
existence was then a concession made by
the lords of creation. There was no
nagging, no domestic difficulty, no back
talk in those days. If she did not do as she
was bid she was promptly flattened out
with a club, and another shouldered the
cooking range and the rest of the uten
sils. These were halcyon times for the
(tern sex who had nothing to do but read
the scriptures and lie in wait for their
enemies. At a later period of
life when the refining influence
of religion put a stop to
cannibalism or men got too tough to be
eaten, lovely woman was allowed to
imuse her lord—who dressed her as a
101 l and kept her in a glass case and
;hrew sugar at her when he wasn't split
ting somebody else's head for saying she
vasn't the prettiest doll then in exist
>nce, and so the world goes. Mrs. Potts
leld an audience of ladies at the Grand
)pera House yesterday afternoon in rapt
ittention during a lecture of two hours,
ifter which they were dismissed wiser
vomen than when they entered the
heater. She continues her lectures to
vomen every afternoon this week.
THE EVENING.
Two crowded houses assembled yes
erday at the Grand Opera House. La
lies and babies captured the citadel in
he afternoon, masculinity was debarred
tnd at a discount. It was a "hen party"
n every particular of the words,
>ut in the evening wives took
heir husbands, sisters pressed their
>rothers into service and yeung ladies
heir sweethearts until "standing room"
)ecame the order of affairs. Mrs. Potts
itters wholesome truths in a most charm
ng and convincing manner. Her audi
inces evince their appreciation by re
naming until the close of her lectures,
.nd accord her their most careful atten
ion. She is possessed of great personal
nagnetism, and although her subjects
,nd surroundings are sombre and gru
ome, her appearance and brilliant
lashes of humor eliminate the eerie con
tition of aifairs. Her engagement con
inues during the present week. Her
.fternoon lectures will be given exclu
ively to ladies, but at tbe evening en
ertainments both sexes will be admitted.
Tlie Next Attraction.
For next week Mr. W. A. Thompson,
the well-known manager, will give the
ater-goers a new thing in this city. He
will introduce to Los Angeles audiences
Miss Hattie Bernard Chase and selected
company. They will open at the Grand
on Monday night for one week. The
play is a musical comedy, Hags, the Wild
cat. Miss Chase is a new luminary in
the theatrical sky. A soubrette of the
Lotta school, she has just closed a suc
cessful season at the Bush-street Theater,
San Francisco, and comes here well
spoken of by the press of the Bay City.
The supporting company is said to be
well drilled and in all respects compe
tent.
The Sweeping machine.
A part of the City Council was present
last night on Main street where a trial of
the new street sweeping machine was
made. A contract between Mr. £. C.
Burlingame and the city is pending, and
the Councilmen expressed a desire to see
the machine tested before closing the
matter. The machine was thought to
operate very well last night, but there
was some doubt expressed as to whether
the streets would not be more thoroughly
cleaned if a heavier sweeper were placed
on the street to dig up the dirt for this
one to sweep aside. This matter will
probably be discussed at the next Coun
cil meeting.
A Chinese Flg-ht.
Two Chinamen named How Tong and
How Sam Sing created quite a disturb
ance in China Town last night. They
became involved in a quarrel and How
Tong belabored How Sam Sing with a
stick. The fight attracted a large crowd
of Celestials who only dispersed when
Officer Fowle took both men to the
police station where How Tong was
charged with battery.

A VOCALIST'S TROUBLES
Arrested for Grand Larceny
Upon Her Arrival.
THE WE VTEKM AN N INQUEST
To be Held This Morning: at Nine
O'clock-Who Did the Shooting
on Temple Street ?
A year ago last spring Miss Minnie
Huff, who possesses a very fine voice,
entertained the audiences of the Tivoli
in San Francisco by her excellent ren
dition of the prima donna parts in the va
rious operas given at that place of amuse
ment. In June of 1887, in company with
her mother, she visited Coronado Beach,
and while there she ventured into the
water upon the assurance that there were
no dangers lurking beneath its surface.
Her first bath resulted disastrously to her
for she stepped upon a stingaree, which,
resenting such treatment, thrust its
weapon into her flesh. She did not re
cover from the effect of the wound si c
received for nearly a year, during which
ti me she made the acquaintance of Thos.
X, Carlin, who had some years ago been
connected with another opera company.
While she was unable to appear upon
the stage, Miss Huff's mind was active,
and she wrote an operetta, which she and
Mr. Carlin determined to give in public
at an early date. They happened
to mention their plans to a man
named Coughlin who said he was anxioi a
to become manager of an opera company
and arrangements were completed where
by the company known as the Minnie
Huff Crioket Company was to take to the
road. The preparation for the produc
tion of this opera required the expendi
ture of some money and this Coughl'n
paid taking in return a note from Miss
Huff for $187. The Minnie Huff Cricket
Company appeared at San Diego to a fuU
house where Miss Huff re
ceived considerable praise. It also ap
peared at Coronado Beach and at Na
tional City. Miss Huff states that she is
certain that the profits of the performan
ces were considerable but she did not re-'
ceive what should have been her share.
The company appeared early this week
at Oceanside where the difficulty arose
which led to the arrest of both Miss Huff
and Mr. Carlin last night upon a charge
of grand larceny by Detective Metzler at
the Santa Fe depot in this city.
Miss Huff states that the manager,
Coughlin, claimed not only the properties
of the company but her wardrobe, and
that she and Mr. Carlin were enjroute to
Elsinore where the opera was to ha\e
been given. They left Oceanside yester
day, having only their street clothes
with them, and were surprised upon ar
riving at the depot to find the detective
waiting to arrest them on a telegram from
Oceanside, stating that they were wanted
in that place for grand larceny. Miss
Huff states that Bhe cannot imagine how
she could be charged with grand larceny
for wearing her own clothes away from
Oceanside, especially as the clothes be
longed to her and had never been the
property of her manager. Miss Huff re-,
ceived her musical education in Europe,
and sang five years in opera on that side
of the Atlantic.
THE WEYERMANN CASE.
All Inquest to be Held Early Tnis
Morning;.
Bernhard Weyermann, the youth who
was shot on the evening of the 20th on
the corner of Fort and Temple, died
early yesterday morning. In the evening
when it became evident that he had only a
few hours more of life, the dying man
sent for Notory Public W. S. Waters and
Attorney F. H. Howard and made a final
statement. Mr. Howard is the counsel
for Arthur, who is accused of the murder.
This statement is in his hands and will
not be made public until the preliminary
examination takes place. Arthur wag
arrested Monday and held on a charge of
assault to murder. His examination,
which was to have taken place before
Justice King yesterday, was postponed,
owing to the alteration in the charge.
He had been admitted to bail at $500,
but was rearrested early yesterday morn
ing immediately after his brother's
death. The body of Bernhard was
taken to the Morgue yesterday morning
and a postmortem examination
held by Drs. Kurtz. Choate and
McGowan. The examination of the
body was ordered by the District
Attorney with a view "of ascertaining
from the direction of the bullet, whether
it was possible that the man should
have shot himself. The result of the
investigation will be made public at the
Coroner's inquest, which will be held
this morning at nine o'clock. The case
is still mysterious, as all the statements
of the dead man have after all seemed
only to confuse the matter. At first
Bernhard asserted that his brother was
nowhere about when the shooting took
place, and that an unknown man com
mitted the deed. This statement was
corroborated by the father and by Arthur
himself. Then when the detectives
learned of the various quarrels of the
brothers and asked awkward questions
concerning the revolver which he had
formerly owned, Arthur said that he had
been lying before, and that the truth of
the matter was his brother had shot him
self. He was still unable, however, to
account for the revolver. When con
fronted with this account of the affair,
the wounded man made a new statement,
declaring that he had drawn the revolver
from his brother Arthur's pocket, and
when the latter undertook to get it away
from him it went off. It is stated that
the final statement does not differ ma
terially from tbe one that preceded it.
A Small Fire.
An alarm of fire was turned in by
telephone yeeterday evening about half
past nine o'clock. A small, one-story
dwelling occupied by C. M. Heinz, an
employee of the Second Street Cable Car
Company, was in flames. The house
was located on Lake Shore avenue, just
back of the Second Street Park. Hems
and his wife were asleep when the fire
broke out and barely escaped with their
lives. Owing to the failure of the
Department to get the exact location
through the alarm, the engines did not
arrive on the spot in time to render
much assistance. The house was
burned to the ground and all that was ia
it destroyed.
