GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER
•Ika Verdict In tne Graaal Murder
Cue.
The trial of Charles Orassi came to an
end yesterday afternoon. The de fendant
testified on his own behalf as follows:
Monroy and I were engaged in loading
railroad ties. I and another Italian were
complaining of the work. After working
a while the deceased came and ordered a
certain tie to be placed in the car. I
dbjecteu, M he could, take it as well as
I. He then grabbed me by the waist
and used vile language. He said be
would kill me if I did tot take tioia C
the tie. He struck me. Another
man also began to beat me. I tried
to get away, but failed, as deceased
was much stronger than I. I concluded
it necessary to defend myself, and drew
my knife and cut him on the left side
Monroy was so angry that he did nol
feel the first cut and continued to stnk<
me. The second cut—the one on th(
neck—Monroy received was caused bs
his leaning over on me and coming ir
contact with the knife. He then let m<
go and I put up my knife. I did no
strike Monroy after he let go of my arm
nor did I pursue him.
Argument by the counsel in the casi
commenced at 11 o'clock and at 3 o'clocl
the jury retired to deliberate. The jnr;
returned * verdict of guilty of man
slaughter.
a railroad fraud.
A Caution for Aaente and Dualnan
Mem.
Agent Amos Bmr, of the Vanderbilt
system, received yesterday the appended
circular from Mr. Carlton C. Crane, the
representative of the company in Port
land, Ore. Accompanying it was a letter
stating that the individual referred to
was working the coast, and would prob
ably turn up in Los Angeles in the course
of a few days. The warning was as fol
* oWß Portland, Ore, January 19,1889.
Our attention has been called to a
party representing himself as R. H. Hill,
Traveling Passenger Agent for the Lake
Shore and Michigan Southern Rail
way, having cards to that effect,
giving no location. He signs himself R.
H. Hill, Ohio. I would say for your in
formation that this party is a fraud. He
also claims to be the son of Addison
Hills, assistant to the President of the
Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Rail
way. He evidently fails to notice the
difference in the names, he claiming hie
name to be Hill, and at the same time
the son of Mr. Hills. He is quite
shrewd and carries two or three annual
passes; also telegrams and letters. His
rascality was discovered here yesterday,
and the police are now on his track; but
it is quite evident, from all appearances,
that he has left town. We find that his
cards were printed here at a local print
ing establishment. His rascality beiDg
discovered immediately, it presented no
opportunity to defraud either the rail
road or hotel people here.
"Carlton C. Crank,
Paseenger Agent."
THE SANTA MONICA ROAD.
It Will All Be Finished This
Vm«i
Mr. Spillman, the contractor for the
Los Angeles and Pacific road stated yes
terday that the surfacing on the new line
to Santa Monica will be completed this
week and tbe road ready for operations.
Inquiry was then made at the offices of
the company as to when trains would
commence running, and Superintendent
Shaw stated that the date had not been
fixed. The directors may possibly desire
to start the road up at once, but then
again as there is not much travel to the
seaside at this season of the year they
may think it advisable to postpone the
commencement of operations a little
while longer.
A Traffic Trouble.
Mr. C. F. Meek, General Manager of
the Denver, Fort Worth and Texas Road,
passed through the city yesterday en
route to San Francisco. His visit there is
in connection with an important move
that has just taken place in the railway
history of the coast; one which may
probably lead to a dispute between the
Santa Fe and Southern Pacific.
By the terms of a traffic arrangement
entered into between the Southern Pacific
aud Santa Fe whereby the Atchison had
the use of the Souhern Pacific's tracks
into San Francisco for its freight cars, the
Santa Fe undertook to keep out of the
Southern Pacific's territory in the south
eastern part of the country, that is, in the
Louisiana and Texas district. The Santa
Fe has, however, just closed a traffic con
tract with the Denver and Fort Worth
Road, and as this last named line oper
ates between New Orleans and Denver,
complications are liable to arise, as the
Denver road will be competing with the
Southern Pacific and sending its freight
north by the Santa Fe. The officials of
all the roads interested see the tine point
that they will have to contend with, but
are keeping very mute as to the probable
outcome of the affair.
Tired of l.lfe.
Mr. Jay D. Vanßuren.of the Herald,
who has just returned from Washington
Territory, witnessed a very tragic affair
while crossing the Columbia river from
Kalama on a transfer boat, on his way
here. The boat was well filled with pas
sengers, and one of them, in the attire of
a workingman, was noticed to remove
his coat, and then throw his hat into the
river. He then climbed onto the rail,
and before anyone could reach him,
plunged into the water. Life preservers
were thrown after him and a rescue
boat manned and sent out as soon as
possible, but the suicide had disappeared
before he could be reached. From papers
found in his coat it was seen that his
name was George Knight. Despondency
was the cause of the deed.
The A. and P.'s New Bridge.
Mr. L. A. Grant, of the firm of Grant
Bros., the railroad contractors, who did
a good deal of the work on the California
Southern, and who are now employed on
the Atlantic and Pacific's new bridge
over the Colorado river, was in town
yesterday- He said that the work is
progressing favorably, and that the new
piece of track will be ready by the Ist of
March. The Atlantic and Pacific are do
ing the bridge-work themeelves and will
also do the tracklaying, the Grant butfit
■imply preparing the approaches and do
ing the grading. _____
A Hallroad fllen'a Club.
An athletic club ia being organised by
the Southern Pacific's employees in this
city and the trainmen are interesting
themselves a good deal in it, ss it will be
a pleasant place to pass their leisure
moments between runs. A half 80x23
with alB foot ceiling has been obtained
for the purpose in the Ludnum xMock on
San Fernando street, and will be fitted j
THE LOS AIfGKLUS DAILY HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 23. 1889,:
up immediately. Messrs. P. H. Mundy
and J. W. Vane have undertaken the
work of organizing the affair and are
leaving nothing undone that can ensure
its success.

Excursion Notes.
Four carloads of excursionists arrived
in the city early yesterday morning. The
ist has not yet been turned in by the
Company's traveling agent, but is prom
ised for to-morrow.
A special trainload of Phillips excur
sionists arrived in the city yesterday
evening over the Santa Fe.
A special vestibule train consisting of
six carloads of Raymond & Whitcomb
excursionists arrived in town over the
Southern Pacific yesterday. The tourists
left the East on theßthinst. and stopped
en route at New Orleans, El Paso,Tucson
and other points of interest. Their names
appeared in last Friday's Herald.
The Rock Island sent out an excursion
last night, one will leave over the U. P.
to-day,;and a Phillips Bros.' party to
morrow.
Mr. Jay W. Adams, the Chicago and
Alton's representative here, has received
one of tbe Company's handsome and
comfortable excursion chairs of the latest
pattern. He has placed it on exhibition
in the window of his office, on Spring
street. .
One for the Shippers.
The railroads are determined to make
money this year if possible, and yester
day an order went into effect that
shippers will think as another "facer"
although certainly not a heavy one.
Heretofore merchants in this city when
desiring to order goods in the East could
by applying to the agent of the railroad
over which tbe consignment was to come,
have telegrams relating to the order sent
free of charge. Notification haß however
been received by tbe railroad men tbat
this courtesy is no longer to continue and
the shippers must pay for their own dis
patches.
Another Special Train.
It is said semi-officially that the Pull
man car works are building for the
Southern Pacific and Unicn Pacific a
train of passenger cars that will be the
exact duplicate of those that make up
the present Golden Gate special. The
object of their construction is said to be
the running of a "special" twice a week
between the coast and Omaha, and it is
announced that when the new train is
put on six months' excursion tickets will
be honored. It is expected that the new
train will be ready by February 15th.
Pullman Paneiiferi.
The following Pullman passengers left
yesterday for San Francisco and the
East:
By the 1:30 p. m. train—T. Hamilton,
W. A. Clinton. M. Hooper, G. Boardman,
L. W. Blum, H. Neil, M. Chandler, Mr.
Russell. S. O. Houghton, Mrs. M. A.
Price, L. Berdega, A.Todd, J. Cohn,Geo.

Traveling facilities.
The adoption of a line of second-class
tourist sleeping cars on the Southern Pa
cific system between this city and Chi
cago, wrs noted in these columns at the
time of their inanguration, about ten
months ago. As was expected the experi
ment has proved a very successful one,
and Mr. Denison, who put the cars on tbe
road, has determined to launch out still
further. Hereafter, therefore, the cars
will run through from San Francisco with
out change.
Books and Stationery Cheap.
Assignee sale, Oltnstoad & Wales,' 210
S. Main street.
Tne BagKafc-naateri.
The general baggage-agents arrived
yesterday according to schedule, and
have taken up their quarters at the
Nadeau. A Herald man had the pleas
ure of meeting several of them during
the course of the day, and iound every
one of them delighted with his California
experiences. A number of the visitors
will go on an excursion to Pasadena to
day, and on to-morrow's overland train
most of them will set out for their East
ern homes, as business will not permit
of an extended vacation at this time of
the year.
Ticket Cutting.
The news has been received by the
ticket agents here that cutting is going
on in San FrancUeo on Eastern rates. A
good deal of it is being done secretly, and
the railroad men up there have instruc
tions to meet any cut that may be made.
Up to the present time the war has not
been a severe one, the principal reduc
tion being of $8 on tickets to New York.
The contest will not extend to this city,
as there is an understanding among the
agents here that has never been broken,
even when disastrous wars have been
raging up North.
The Meat Market.
A good deal of stock is coming into
town from Arizona, about fifty carloads
a week being received by the Southern
Pacific. A dispatch yesterday from
Yuma stated that two special trains ot
cattle bound for Los Angeles had just
passed that point, and will therefore
arrive in town to-day. A trainload that
arrived yesterday will be sent down to
the Sentous spur to-day.
A tiaod Display.
A splendid exhibit of fruit is to be
seen in the Santa Fe offices on Spring
street. It consists of preserves and
fruits of all descriptions, one orange
weighing one pound three ounces, and
being 16 inches in circumference. The
display is an attractive one, and numbers
of Eastern visitors stood admiringly
scrutinizing it throughout the day.
We recommend the me of Angostura Bitters
to our friends who suiter with Oyspepsfa, but

Another Fall in Plunder.
The proprietors of tho Plunder Store,
10 North Main street, are determined
that their winter stock of clothing must
go. They have made immense reduc
tions this week in every Hue of clothing

made for spring stock. They are offer
ing extraordinary bargains in men's and
boys' overcoats. They are selling very
good overcoats for $2.98, $3.48 and $3.98.
These goods must certainly have cost
more at the factory. They are offering
cassimere suits this week at $3.48 and
$4.98; English worsted suits, $5.98, and
four-button cutaway dress suite, $12.50.
