Harry Wicks, who is charged with Bhooting Arad Howe in front of McGin nis' saloon on Main street, was brought before Justice King yesterday for prelim inary examination.

A gang of five beggars stationed them selves on Los Angeles street yesterday morning and began operations on the passers-by. Officers Arnez and Bosciui happened on the crowd and promptly bagged them.

Grant ia ill arith a high fever and, being entire ly without friends, the pair were com pelled to ask the city for assistance. They were evidently people of the better class. M.

William wan taken before Justice Austin yesterday afternoon, and the oth of September was set for his trial. He was admitted to bail in the sum of $100. THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 30, LBBB. A LEGAL SOCKDOLAGER. Let Is Work the Problem Out. Impressario Coughlin had his prima donna, the mellifluous Minnie Huff ar rested for grand larceny last night. The charge is that she walked off from the stage with masculine smalls and doublet belonging to the impressarial wardrobe. A nice legal question arises in this ar rest. Of course Minnie was clearly within the law in putting on the apparel, whether for rehearsal or performance. If she refused to undress afterwards, and walked off within the things that she had legally put on, at what exact point does the felony come iv. At the refusal to undress? A woman is not compelled by law to undress. Suppose she had no other things handy, it would be an act of propriety for her to refuse. But suppose that the"impressario had availed himself of the old law maxim, that one can take his own wherever he finds it, and pro ceeded to seize his things, who would have been responsible to the law for the shock that would have been sus tained by the public? Not Minnie, surely. The naked facts might have trojbled her; but the impressario would clearly have been responsible to the law for the consequences to the pub lic. If the law does not permit a creditor to levy upon one's personal effects in di rect and actual use, how can a prima donna be held for larceny and stripped of the property, even it the </i/om owner ship is In another, when she placed it on in the performance of a professional duty and in her legal right. She might be pursued for contumacy, if the court had ordered her to undress and she had re fused ; but this would have been in the nature of a civil proceeding. To force her to undress, vi et armit by legal pro cess would in a case like this be rather uncivil; and whilst we believe that Min nie would have the tight to redress, if she thought fit, (even in a case of misfit,) the damages to the impressario could oily be nil. There might also arise a nice question as to the legal identifica tion of the party attainted. Is, for in stance, Minnie Huff when sl:e is to all intents and purposes Prince Fortunatus, a male or a female ? Answer us that, "aye, marry, and perpend." There be imbroglios in this extraordinary case. I ndellvend Telegrams. Undelivered telegrams at the Western Union Telegraph office, No. 8 Court street, at 10 P. x., August 29th: Mrs. C. D. Bowles, C.
