Sig. A. Farini's farewell benefit, which
takes place at the Lcs Angeles Theater
Monday, April 29th, promises to be quite
an elaborate affair. The programme

with the following cast: "Margherita,"
Miss Lulu Beattev; ''Siebel," Miss
Annie Cohen; "Martha," Miss Bern ice
Holmes; "Fautt," Mr. AVm. WaddiDg

Big. Farini. These aots will be given in
full costume and with scenic effects. Be
sides the celebrated Hungarian quaitatte
a fine picked orchestra has been engaged,
and, judging from the rehearsals, the
public may expect an extraordinary
treat. Farini has labored faithfully to
elevate the musical taste in Los Aneeles,
and he certainly deserves a full house.
All the arrangements are in the bands
of his friends and a competent commit
tee. We understand that the Klks are
also making preparations to reciprocato
the Signor's kindness in assisting them
so generously in their last benefit. The
tickets for reserved seats are now ready

Charles E. Cook, the manager of the
company, writes from San Francisco that
Xord FaunlUroy played in two weeks to
$20,000, and he expected that the busi

during the rest of the engagement theie.
This piece has of late been attracting a
great deal of attention. It was based on
a story written for children, which had
bf en extensively read, both by them and
by the older folks, with a great deal of
pleasure. The principal character in the
play is taken by twochildren,who appear
00 alternate nights. Both are said to
play their parts to perfection. The per
formances will be crowded here.

THE DUAL TRAGEDY.
Inquest on the Hemains of French
The inquest on the remains of the un
fortunate French woman who was killed
ia a brothel on Alameda street on Friday
morning, was held at 10 a. m. yesterday
by Coroner Meredith at the morgue.
Tbe first witness called was Joe Sing,
tbe cook employed by tbe deceased, and
be testified as follows: "I have worked
for the deceased a week. On Friday
morning at 7 o'clock I made coffee and
called her and Scott by knocking at the
bedroom door, which is next to the kit
chen. I get no answer, so I went to mar
ket and returned about 9 o'clock and
oookei breakfast. I then called them
•gain, but did not get any answer.
About I o'clock I was over by the fence
1 heard some noive in their .oom, and I
thought it was them calling me, so I
went to tbe room and opened the door,
which was not locked. I looked in tbe
room and raw the man and woman botb
in bed. There was blood on the floor
and on the bed. I then went to the sa
loon and called the saloon-keeper."
Alfred Oliver, the saloon-keeper in
question, who resides at No. 305 Ala
meda street, a few doors from the scene
of the tragedy, was the next witness,
and testified as follows: "The deceased
went by the name of Annie, and Scott
lived with her. On Thursday evening
between 10:30 and 11 o'clock Scott got
out of a hack in front of No. 313, and
came into my place, where he bought a
half-pint flask of whisky and gum, and
left the house. The next afternoon,
about 1 o'clock, a Chinaman came torn'
saloon and s •Imeto go with him, and
I w»nt to the room of the deceased. In*
CI in \a an poshed open the door, and I
saw Scott lying on tne front of the bed,
and the woman on the other side. She
was dead. I then went and telephoned
for ths police."
Doctor .1. J. Choate was the next
called, and said: "I was called on Fri
day afternoon a little before 2 o'clock to
THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, APRI». 15. 1859
go and see the deceased and the wounded
man, Scott. I went, and found the
woman on the back of the bed, dead, and
the man lying on his back on tbe front
of the bed. He had a punctured wound
in the right temple, and seemed to be in
a stupor. I aroused him and asked him
if he was suffering, and he replied that
he had a severe pain in his forehead
Neither the room nor the bed presented
any appearance of a struggle having
taken place in it. He was covered up,
and the deceased was uncovered. lasted
him what time it was done, and he said
hetween 4 and 5 o'clock that morning;
that he had gone to bed about
11 o'clock, and was awakened by a pistol
shot; that he turned his head ana saw
something dark, heard another pistol
shot and felt that he was shot himtelf;
•that he was unconscious for some time,
and that he came too and felt chilled
and cold; that the door was wida open,
and that he got up and closed it, the
effort causing him to vomit a quantity of
blood; that he returned to bed and saw
his pistol, which he had left on the chair
by the lamp, laving by the side of the
deceased in bed. The wound in the
head of the man had the appearance of
a gunshot wound. It was powder-burned
around for about an inch, and the hair
was singed. In my opinion the woman
never moved after she was shot. I made
a post mortem examination of her re
mains yesterday, and found a punctured
wound extending through both hem
ispheres of [the brain, which caused her
death. Surrounding tbe hole in the
temple there is a circumscribed place
two inches in diameter, which is black
ened as if from pawder burn; the hair is
A number of letters were handed to
the Coroner which showed that the de
ceased woman's maiden name is
Hortense Vandoorne, of Roubaix,
France, at which place, at No. 28 Rue de
France, her mother Ursule now lives.
The family is under the impression that
the deceased is married and in some
decent business. Whether she was
married to Pierre Lebrun, the man who
left her a short time ago, does not ap
pear from the correspondence, thoi'gh
letters from his and her relatives would
lead one to believe so. From envelopes
ready for mailing found with tbe de
ceased's letters it appears that his
proper name is Charles Lebrun and his
address Mayfield, Santa Clara county.
Tae testimony lei g 1 if, the jury re
tired aad subsequently returned the
verdict "that Hortense Vandoorne, alias
Anna Lebrun, alias Anna Scott, a native
of France, aged about 38 years, came to
her death on the 12th day of April by a
gunshot wound in the head, inflicted
with a revolver, and whether the said
shot was fired by the deceased, or
Charles Scott or a person or persons un
known, we the jury have no means of
Scott is, if anything, improving.and he
rested well yesterday, and seemed to
suffi'r but little pain. He is carefully
tended both night and day, and the doc
tors have strong hopes now of being able
to pull him through. If he Bhould re
csver he wili doubtless be placed on
trial for the murder of his mistress, as
the circumstantial evidence is
very ttrong against him. He adheres
stoutly, however, to his original state
ment regarding the affair and nothing
can shake his testimony.
Bryan, his partner in the blacksmith
business, seems to be rather unfortunate
in the selection of a companion in his
business. Before he took Scott in the
concern he had for his partner Frank
Wilson, who shot and killed a man in
the Crystal Palace saloon some months
ago. Wilson, it will be remembered,
escaped, and was never captured.
Mr. Rose Wants to Know Where
Mr. L. J. Rose informed a Hbbald
man yesterday tbat he has liberated
twenty-four English skylarks which he
imported to his Rosemeade ranch some
months ago. He says that directly the
birds were freed they flew straight up
and attained such an altitude that they
were indiscernible. Since then they
have not been seen and Mr. Rose says
that there is no telling to which part of
the country they may have gone. He
therefore desires that all of the papers
that should notice this item would men
tion the fact of the birds being about and
request their readers to communicate
with Mr. Rose if any of the birds should
be seen. They can be easily told by
their manner of flight, for, on leaving
the ground, they always go straight up
before proceeding toward any of the
points of the compass. Then, again,
they can be distinguished by their song,
for they sing when flying, and one's at
tention would be immediately attracted
by their pleasant notes.
