THE ARIZONANS.
Am Important matter That They
Will Consider.
The Arizona legislators, whose arrival
was chronicled in yesterday morning's
Hkkald, fonnd a good many old friends
•bout town yesterday, and seemed to be
enjoying their brief stay in Los Angeles
immensely. They held an informal
caucus in the parlors of the Nadeau yes
terday, where they have established
their headquarters, but nothing of note
transpired. A Hebald man yesterday
had the pleasure of a long chat with Sen
ator George W. Cheyney of Cochise
county. "It is, as you say, a long way
around," said the Arizonian, when the
conversation on the roundabout trip the
party was making came up. "It is
about 125 miles from Phienix, the end of
the railroad, to Prescott," he continued,
"but it is a terrible piece of country to
.traverse at this season of the year. For a
number of miles one would have to travel
through the snow, but the chief difficulty
is as regards the rivers for there are two
to be crossed en route and either of them
is liable to be impassable. One year we
tried it by stage and got over the first
river and mountains all right, but when
we got to the second stream we had to
turn back because it was a raging tor
rent. Under the most favorable circum
stances the journey could not be accom
pliaed by stage in less than twenty-six
hours, and as this would mean an incess
ant jolting, we prefer to make the four
day's trip by rail and travel comfor
tably."
"How about the railroad that was to
be built from Prescott to Phcenix?"
asked the scribe.
"Well everything pertaining to it has
been dormant for some time, but we
mean to bring the matter up at this ses
sion. The situation is as follows. From
Prescott Junction on the Atlantic and
Pacific to Prescott, a distance of
sixty miles is operated a road
controlled by Colonel Bullock, and from
Maricopa on the Southern Pacific to
Phoenix, a distance of thirty miles, is a
line operated by Colonel Bean. Now,
between Prescott and Phienix is a gap
of only 120 miles, and four years ago the
Legislature passed a bill authorizing the
issuing of county bonds for a railroad
from Prescott south. This line has never
been commenced, however, because
among the clauses of the bill was one
defining the route of the road,and this, it
was said, was got in by some one inter
ested in the property it would traverse.
Colonel Bullock is perfectly willing to
build the road if he is allowed to follow
his own route, but the question comes up
whether, if the route is changed, the bill
warranting the bonds does not become
void, and by the Harrison bill no more
indebtedness can be increased in
Arizona, and therefore no more bonds
issued. The legal point of whether
or not the route can be changed without
forfeiting tbe bonds will therefore be
brought up at the coming aession, for we
are all very anxious to ccc the road built.
Its completion will make a revolution in
the markets of western Arizona, as you
will see by the following illustrations:
At the present time alfalfa hay is quoted
at six dollars a ton in Phoenix ; it is thirty
dollars a ton in Prescott because that sec
tion is not agricultural and has to import
all of its hay from California. On the
jotber hand lumber is fifteen dollars a
thousand in Prescott and thirty-five dol
lars a thousand in Phu nix, because Pres
cott is a timbered section and Phoenix is
not. I could quote you many more such
instances, but those I have given will
suffice to show how things would be equal
ized by the building of this little piece of
road. As regards traveling accommoda
tions, it is needless to mention them, for
it would save about three and a half days
out of four days on a trip like this."
The Legislators have decided to re
main here until to-morrow when they
will leave on the Santa Fe overland for
Prescott where the Legislature rallies on
Monday next.
A QUEER CASE.
Two .Tien Arrested for tne Seduction
of one Girl.
Eva Barber has procured the arrest of
David B. Brown and Arthur Isaacs on a
charge of seduction by means of false
promises. The young women who is
but 18, was up to a short time ago, the
■"living half-lady" in a Main-street place
of amusement, and she alleges that on
the 17th of August the accused accom
plished her ruin. Her performance was
as an optical delusion, only the upper
portion oi her person being visible, ap
parently on a table, under which nothing
could be seen.
She alleges that Brown seduced her
on promise of marriage, and that while
she lived with him, believing he would
keep his promise, Issacs also seduced
her, and after this occurrence Brown
refused to marry her, and she swore to
the complaint. The young men claim
that they did not seduce her, and that
she was not morally inclined, but was as
liberal with her favors to others as she
was to them. They were admitted to
bail in the sum of $1,000 each and tbe
examination was set for the 23d instant.
THE WALTERS ESTATE.
Its Administration Is Becoming
Quite mixed.
On November the 12th the State com
menced a suit in the Superior Court
against David Leiva, Magdalena Colima
et al., to declare that they have no in
terest in the estate of George Walters,
who died at the age of 72 in January,
1888. Walters at his death left an estate
valued at about $30,000, and shortly after
ward David Leiva and his mother, Mag
dalena Colima appeared, and claimed to
have an interest in the same. Leiva,
who is now on trial on a charge of mur
der in Judge Cheney's Court,alleged that
he was the illegitimate child of Walters,
and had been acknowledged as such by
him. The complaint alleged that Walters
died intestate, a bachelor and without
children. Yesterday tbe attorneys for
Leiva filed an answer, allegeging that
the complaint was untrue and that the
action had been commenced too soon,
since five years had not elapsed since the
death of Walters and the estate is now
pending administration in the Superior
Cjurt.
THE POMONA AND ELSINORE.
Important meeting- of Directors!
Held Tuesday.
A meeting of the Board of Directors of
the Pomona and Elsinore Railroad waa
held in the office of the South Riverside
Land and Water Company Tuesday. All
of the directors were present except W.
E. Hampton of Elsinore. The Board
authorized the President to procure right
of way from Pomona to Los Angeles and
terminal facilities in tbe latter city. A
survey is also to be made through the
Cajon Pass and steps will be taken at
once to consolidate the Pomona and Elsi
nore and the Elsinore and Ban Diego |

roads. This is the most important piece!
of local railroad news for months. The
action of the directors would seem to
mean business and apparently indicates
the presence of a transcontinental road
in the background, probably the Union
Pacific. Further developments may be
expected before very long.—[South Riv

THE LEIVA CASE.
Did Lopez rira a Snot at the De
fendant?
The prosecution in the case of David
Leiva charged with the murder of Pedro
Lopez, finished its taking of testimony
yesterday morning with the examination
of Dr. McGowan, who had removed
some of the shot from the wound in the
breast of the wounded man. The de
fense opened its case by an effort to
prove that Frank Snea, one of the wit
nesses of the prosecution, had been
tampered with. Snea was not able to
remember any of the conversations on
which the claim was based.
Dr. William Dodge was called as a
medical expert and was asked a number
of questions of a hypothetical order for
the purpose of showing that the story
told by the witnesses for the people that
Lopez had run several steps after being
shot through the heart, was not likely to
be true.
Pedro Roche swore that he heard
three shots fired and that Lopez had
shot at Leiva before the latter fired. On
cross examination he added that he saw
the deceased run toward the defendant.
The witness denied that he had talked
with any of the lawyers for the defense
about the testimony which he was to
give.
The firet sensational testimony for the
defense was offered by Francisco Rivas
at the afternoon session. He was the
first man on the ground after the shoot
ing. His house was about 150 yards
from the stable where the old man was
sitting when he was shot. The witness
was changing his clothes, but upon hear
ing tbe shots he ran to the spot and was
tbe first to help lift the old man
from where he was lying in
a pool of blood. Beneath him
was a revolver covered with blood —
an old fashioned affair. He did not re
member of Lopez carrying a pistol. On
cross-examination, the witness remem
bered a conversation with 03borne the
interpreter some time ago, but could not
recall having told him that he saw no
pistol, and that the defense had put him
up to this point in the testimony.
Objection being taken at this point by
the attorneys for the defense to Os
borne's serving as an interpreter when
he was also to be a witness in the case,
bis services were dispensed with and
Mr. Naud was put in his place. The
witness then denied having made any
arrangement with the defense about his
testimony.
Josefina Rivas, the daughter ©f Fran
cisco, was the next witness. She had
heard the shots as she stood on the
front door step of her father's house.
She cried out,"They have killed Lopez,"
and ran toward the stable. Her father
got there first and there were several
others on hand before she came to where
the old mau was dying. She could not
remember what her father did. She did
not see a pistol nor see anyone pick one
up.
Beatrice De Riva, Francisco's wife,
was with her daughter at the time ol the
shooting and heard two shots. She saw
nothing of the shooting.
Raymon Leiva met the defendant at
Verdugo and took a drink with him. He
stood outside the saloon while the fight
was in progress. He saw Lopez strike at
the defendant. He did not see the de
fendant try to shoot anybody.
The Court then took a recess until 10
o'clock this morning.
Improvements Heine; made.
Great improvements are being made at
the Dime Museum on Main street, near
First. Messrs. Doyle & Isaacs, the en
terprising proprietors, are reconstructing
the building from beginning to end. The
show this week is a good one.

Harry Cullom was tried yesterday in
the United States District Court on a
charge of selling liquor to Indians at
San Bernardino. He was found guilty
by the jury and was sentenced to two
months at the County Jail.

The Board of Health will meet this
afternoon at 2 o'clock, and will take
