Sprague. the assasßin of the Garvanza Constable. He died in the course of the morning, and a jury of inquest was summoned as soon as practicable. Dr. W. L. Mc Ulster testified as to the condition Sprague was iv when he was called to see him. There were four small shot in the body, two on the right side of the abdomen, one over the eye and one iv the neck. These were all superficial. The fatal shot bad been made by a bullet which had entered the body on the right side under the twelfth rib, and had passed through the liver and out two inches above the lower point of the breast bone. I. M. Patterson testified that there were twenty in his posse, that the man was in a frenzied condition, and fired at every one be could get a fair shot at. The wit ness joined in the chase, carrying a shot gun, and had himself taken several shots at Sprague. He saw H. W. Patton shoot twice, but was not sure that it was his bullet that finally did the work. W. F. D. Jones described the fight at the house of Sprague, and testified to the shooting of Harnischfeger by Sprague, and to the efforts of the latter to kill the witness. J. E. Lindsey told how he joined in the chase with the rest, and fired at Sprague with a gun loaded with buckshot. He heard Peters say to Patton: "I authorize you to shoot."" E. Peters, who is City Marshal of South Pasadena, added his testimony to the same effect. The jury brought in a verdict that the deceased came to his death "by a rifle shot tired March 17th by some one who was pursuing him as a criminal, by au thority of the Constable, but who it was that fired the fatal shot does not appear to the jury." The terrible tragedy at Garvanza was a common topic of conversation on the streets yesterday. It was rumored at one time that both the men were dead, but at the time of this writing Hatnischfeger was still alive, although death could be only a short, distance away. The wound is undeni ably mortal. The act of Patton in shooting at the man to stop him, even at the risk of tak ing his life, was universally commended. In his frenzied condition the man, if allowed to escape, might have taken the lives of several others as he did that of the unfortunate Constable. Tbe verdid of the Coroner's jury, which practically absolves Patton from all blame, eeemet to give general satisfaction. THE WASHOUTS REPAIRED. All Trains But Tnoae on tne L. A. A P. on Time Again. The railroad officials are in good spir its again, for the lines are all opened once more. The washout on the Te junga, which closed up travel between this city and the north, was all fixed early yesterday morning, and before day broke the procession of delayed trains b gan stringing in. As soon as possible a train was sent out from the Wolfskin depot for the north, it pulling out at 5:20 a m. and carrying to their destinalions the passe.-jgers from the East who were waiting over here. At 7:15 the first train since Thursday was dispatched to Banta Barbara, and at 9:30 a. it. an East-bound train was run out. By noon everything was in its usual condition, and all trains on both the main line and branches are now running on time as heretofore. The Santa Fe is also in its normal con dition, co the only road at present tied up is the Santa Monica eection of the Los Angeles and Pacific road. The damage done to it, however, will be repaired to day, as there are only three washouts and President Hall stated yesterday af ternoon that if there is no more rain the line will be running again to-morrow. Weather reports from all over Califor nia at 4p. at, yesterday showed] that it was still partly cloudy, except south of Indio, where all was clear. The indica tions are that there will be another slight fall in tho mpuntains, and probibly a little in the valleys surrounding Los An geles, but as the clouds are rapidly break ing up the storm may be said to be over. "At Home." Company F, Seventh Regiment, First Brigade, N. G. C, made Armory Hall merry last evening with one of their delightful "at homes." About 200 guests participated in the revelry, and, owing to the excellent management, there was not a Bingle hitch to mar the pleasures of the evening. The officers of the occasion to whom the thanks of all interested are due were as follows: Executive—Lieut. H. B. Sullivan, Chairman, aided by Messrs. A. M. War ren, O. Ragland, W. W. Colmery, I. S. Niles. Roception—Hon. J. W. A. Off, Chair man, assisted by Messrs. B. L. Binford O. G. D. Stone, F. E. Steams, F. G. Fin layson. Floor—Squire J. E. McLean, assisted by Messrs. J. Franklin, C. B. Smith, F. J. Peck, F. W. Dinsmore. The Seventh regiment orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. M. Knoll, furnished excellent music during the evening. Laketiarrty Subsiding. Navigation is about to cease on this splendid sheet of water at the corner of Spring and Ninth streets. For several days the small boys of the neighborhood drove a rushing business with their mosquito fleet; but yesterday the water had lowered by seepage to a degree that raised a series of mud bars and brick reefs along the channels. The frogs tiave taken possession of the pool, and make night vocal with their strident music. This lake never would have] been formed, nor the one at the junction ' of South Spring and Main, if storm j drains had been provided at the oorners j before the streets were paved. It will 1 cost the city a pretty penny to make ' these drains at all points whore they 1 have proven, by the late rains, to be in- J dispensable. A Crazy Patch-Work Exhibit. The managers of the Dime Museum announce a crazy patch-work exhibit to commence next Saturday and will dis tribute several hundred dollars in prem iums. Ladies intending to enter their handiwork should do so before Thursday night. £MS A TRADE. It Results In a Suit for SBO,OOO Damages. Caspar T. Hopkins commenced suit yesterday in the Superior Court against J. D. Yocura and N.tthan G. Yocum to recover $20,000 damages, for alleged deceit. The complaint sets forth that J. D. Yocum is the father of Nathan G. Yocum, and that in July, 1887, defend ants had, by assiduously cultivating the friendship of plaintiff aud professing L'reat atfeclion for him, so completely -aincd his confidence that the plaintiff relied implicitly upon all their state tnents and representations; that, having thus gained his confidence and disarmed his suspicions, defendants combined and conspired together to übtain from plain tiff, without any adequate or any mate rial consideration, the Olivewood House in Pasadena, valued at $10,000 and $4,000 in money ; that, in order to induce him to convey the home to them, defendants lepresented to hitu that they were anx ious to obtain it for a residence for Mrs. Hannah T. Yocum, the wife of J. D. Yocum and mother of Nathan G. Yocum, and that they in tended if they could obtain it to give it to her as a residence; that iv order to effect their purpoec, defendants offered to re ceive the Olivewood House in part pay ment at $10,000 for a tract of twenty acres of land in San Diego county adjoin ing Lucerne at the north end of Elsinore Lake, the value of which they repre sented to by $20,000 and upwards; that defendant, Nathan G. Yocum, had laid out the town of Lucerne in lots, and was eadeavoring to collect a population and create a town, and that the value of ad joining property depended in a great measure on the success which said Nathan G. Yccum had had iv making Bales of lots. It was represented that out of DOO lots, between 000 and 700 had been sold at an average price ol $500 for ordinary lots and $000 for corner lots 50x150 feet; that the twenty acres of land were covered with brush so as to make it difficult to tell the character of the soil, and the defendants adroitly prevented the plaintiff from suspecting that the land differed in quality from the adj .lining cleared lands, and so diverted attention from that point to prevent hiui from making an examination, and repre sented that the land could be divided into lots similar to those in Lucerne. The com plaint further alleges that J. D. Slocum drove plaintiff in a wagon around the edge of the land, and represented that tbe few rocks on it would only be suffi cient to use for building foundations for houses. The exchango was made, and plaintiff left the State and did not return until September, 1888, when he discov ered, and now charges, that the twenty acre tract was almost worthless; that it lies directly in line of a drift of stone from the mountains, which stone completely covers the ssil and renders it of no value greater than twenty dollars per acre. Plaintiff alleges that the sale of lots did not reach 300 and the price did not reach $400, and that instead of giving the Olive wood house to Mrs. Yocum the defend ants sold it to J. McCoy for $10,000. Plaintiff asks damages of $20,000. A SOCIAL. Another Euteriaiunient for Plcas urc-Seckera.

EiGLESOJ * 01. : * CATARRH, Throat Diseases, Bronchitis, ASTHMA, CONSUMPTION Together with diseases of the EYE, EAR AND HEART, Successfully treated by M. Hilton Williams, M. [>.. M. CP. S. 0.. HOLLENBECK BLOCK, Cor. Spilng and Second Sts., Los Angeles, Oal. Consumption Can Be Cured. This has been demonstrated in thousands of cases treated by UK. WILLIA With his new system of medicated inhalations, also the oxygen and compound oxygen treat ment, comblued with proper constitutional remedies for the liyer, stomach, blood, etc. Probably no system of practice ever adopted has been so universally successful as that in troduced by Dr. Williams for the cure ol Catarrh, Throat Diseases, Bronchitis, Asthma and Consumption. CATARRH. Catarrh Is often regarded by the patient as a cold in the head, and he often expresses his astonishment at his remarkable tendency to contract a fresh cold. Indeed, he declares he is scarcely free from one cold before he takes another; and lie is always exceedingly careful It is also a matter of surprise to him that the cold always seems to settle in the head and throat. At times many of the symptoms of Catarrh may seem to abate, and the patient is led to hope that the disease is about to wear off: but another class of symptoms soon appear, and he learns to his horror that instead of recovery from the disease it Is somewhat changed in its character and has extended to the throat. A sense of weariness is tometlmea felt In read ing, speaking or singing, hoarseness at times occurs, a sensation of dryness Is sometimes (cli In the throat, or It appears that some foreign substance, as, for instance, a hair, obstructed the throat: there becomes a sense of languor aud fatigue, the breath lessens upon a little exertion, a short, hacking cough, a peculiar sound In clearing the throat, a feeling as though there was not room enough in the chest to breathe; these and other symptoms occur after the disease haß made considerable progress Then It is a time when consnmption is about to begin its dreadful work. Up to this point the progress of the disease may nave been slow, and ihe patient may In expressing his confident hope that it will ' wear off," declare that he has had the catarrh for years and has not seemed to become much worse, and trusts he will "by and-by" recover. But this delusion is the grand error which hss peopled our cemeteries with consumptive forms, as all forms of catarrh end finally in consumption. Inhalations are applicable lv all diseases of the respiratory organs, but must be prepared for each Individual case as they severally re quire. By the employment of proper Inhalation in the form of medicated vapor (not steam or spray) we are able to produce immediate and direct action upon the diseased surface iv the pharynx and nasal passages, for air will find its way into the most remote and intricate cavities, where it is Impossible to make fluid appllca' tions. By these m.aus every case can be cured Persons desiring treatment by this system of practice can use the remedies at home as well aa at our office, and which will cause no incon venience or hindrance to business whatever I have seen so many of these cases cured that I do not consider any case hopeless unless both lungs are seriously Involved Even then the Inhalations aid us In dissolving the mucus and in contracting and healing the cav ities, which nothing else can do with the same success The very host references from those already cured.
