COURT MATTERS.
Kestrained From Signing
City Demands.
ARSON IN THE FIRST DEGREE.
Lattimore Convicted After a Long
Trial—The Chandler and
Other Cases.
Among the new suits will be found one
brought by C. J. Richards, restraining
City Auditor Lopez from auditing certain
demands, and City Treasurer Johnson
from paying the same until their legality
has been determined upon. These de
mands were the subject of a message
from the Mayor on Monday, and caused
considerable discussion in the Council.
The Mayor stated in his message that he
had some time before drawn the attention
of the Council to the provisions of the
charter requiring that all amounts over
$300 should be paid only on contracts,
and that all under that figure required
the passage of ordinances authorizing
their payment. This being the case he
held that the demands referred to pre
sented to him for his approval were not
legally contracted, there having been no
ordinances authorizing the expenditure
of the money. He therefore refu ed to
approve them and sent them back to the
Council, which, after a warm debate, ap
proved them over his veto and ordered
them paid.
The complaint filed yesterday states
that on the 20th of January the Council
approved and ordered these pretended
claims paid as though the same were
valid. On the 27th of January they
were presented to the Mayor for his ap
proval, but he rejected them, and on the
3d of February returned them to tbo
Council, which "again ordered them paid.
The complaint was accompanied by an
order restraining the Auditor and Treas
urer from auditing or paying the de
mands.
IN THE COURTIS.
Lattlniore Convicted of Arson In
the First Degree.
The trial of the negro, John E, Latti
more, was concluded in Department 1
yesterday morniDg. After argument it
was given to the jury, and in a very short
space of time these twelve men good and
true returned a verdict of guilty of arson
in the first decree. The case was a hard
one to get a verdict on. This is evidenced
by the fact that the negro has been tried
two or three times before and no result
reached. The trouble is that the evi
dence is purely circumstantial, and it is
difficult to remove all reasonable doubt
from the minds of ail the jury. In this
last trial the matter was put
in the hands of Decretive March,
who worked it up with great
skill and the conviction is largely due to
hia thorough work. Deputy District
Attorney McComas aided by his
effective cross-examination of tbe
defendant, which had the effect of get
ting the wily negro excited sufficiently
to make him talk. Sentence will be
passed hereafter.
This case was followed by tee trial of
Burden* Chandler, an ex-councilman,
charged with taking a bribe as a rr ember
of the Council. Tnis is the noted elec
tric clock game case. The detail hare
all appeared several times in the Herald.
F. G. Teed, cierk of the Conr.'.-il, was the
first witness. He was put on to show
that Chandler was in the Council
and voted on the licensing of the
dock. Th*re was a great legal dispute
between W. P. Gardiner, Chandler's
counsel, and the District Attorney as to
the admission of this testimony. The
main point raised is that the indictment
charges that in January 4, 18S8, Chand
ler got $300. from F.O.Rodman, man
ager of the Turf and Grain Exchange,
owned by Rodman, of this city, and
Henry Schwartz snd Jerry Driscoll, of
San Francisco, and that he received the
money under a promise that he would
vote in the Council against the suppres
sion of the clock game. But the clock
game wag not licensed at all at the date
referred to in the indictment. No such
license was issued until the 16th of
March, more than two mouths later.
The ordinance to lisence the clock was
before the Council at the time, and it be
gins to look as if the charge ought to
have been that Chandler took the money
to vote for the passage of the ordin
ance. The facts were finally allowed
to be put in, although the court inti
mated very plainly that he thought
Judge Gardiner was perfectly right in
the position he took. As the prosecution
was allowed to go on and put iv all the
testimony there was on their side, they
rested before court adjourned.
After Mr. Teed there were examined
Henry Schwartz, Sidney Lacy and Mr.
Rodman. The three told in substance
of Chandler goiDg to the Turf and Grain
Exchange with the supposable intention
of breaking the bank bahind the clock
But the electric current was too strong
for the city dad, and broke him. Then, in
the language of the sporting fraternity,
Chandler "squealed." In December
he got |200 back, having made
threats that if the money was
not paid he would make it cost the firm
a good deal of money. So the money
was given him under a promise that he
would cot come again to play. Then in
January he came and said he was a big
loser and that he wanted more money.
He was reminded of bis promise not to
play, but he said he played through third
patties. He said he must have money,
that he had pawned his wife's jewels
and she was going to a party and if he
did not get the things for her she would
find it out and make things disagreeable
at the house. By threats of making it
cost the firm heavily, and saying
he had a '•pull," as the Mayor
would stand by him, he got
$300. He then promised not to play
ag<Mn and to be a friend to tbe game
outside. Later he struck the clock
people for $1,000 on the same old plead
ings, but did not get it. That is in
substance the testimony of the three
witnesses for the peop'e. When the
District Attorney announced that the
people were ready to rest, court ad
journed. No doubt a motion to quash
the indictment will be renewed this
morning, and it may be granted.
The Edelman cases came up in De
partment 3, and were, continued until
Saturday, at which date Captain Knox
and Major Furrey, of the late Grand
Jury, are cited to appear again.
The case of Banning against Banning
came up in Department 2. The case
is an old one and has been up before
the Supreme Court. It is in regard to
the partition of a part of tbe Banning
estate, and the only question at issue is
brought by the defendants, who are con
testing the title of heirs and the validity
THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HEKALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 5. 1890.
of certain deeds. The whole matter of
partition has been left to b commission
of three persona, each party to the action
selecticg one and Judge Clark tho third,
who must be a surveyor. Messrs. C. l.
Healey and Hon. J. R. Toberman have
been agreed upon by the Banmngs.
Judge Clark will name the third in a
day or two.
Joseph Swope was before Department
2 and a commission in lunacy. He
is ordered committed to Stockton.
In the same department F. H. Oeding
and Jovian H. Forthman. both natives
of Germany, were made citizens.
Before Judue McKinley, Harrington, a
vagrant, war brought on a writ of habeas
corpus. Harrington was committed by
Justice Stanton of tha court which the
Supreme Court has declared unconstitu
tional. He was released from custody,
but was at once rearrested by an officer
in waiting. There are a number of
similar cases, but it is thought they will
not resort to the habeas corpus proceed
ings to regain their lost liberty, as they
will all be rearrested, and tried before
Justice Austin, by which they may get
as severe a sentence as before, and lose
all the time already spent in jail.
Jack Dunn will "not be able to avail
himself of this decision, as no motion to
set aside the judgment on theso grounds
was made by him. He will "go over
the road," as he is under sentence.
Of the venire of thirty-two term trial
jurors returned in the United States Dis
trict Court, fifteen were excused for vari
ous causes, principally sickness. A
special venire for thirty additional jurors
was ordered issued, returnable next.

The Imps of the Congo Forcbt.
Stanley considers the relief of Emm
Pasha far and away the most difficult of
all hia African achievements.
"There was nothing in the expedition
through the Dark Continent to compare
with the frightful experience of the great
and gloomy Congo forest." said Stanley.
"None of us will ever forget it to our dying
day. Day after day the dripping rain,
the saturated forest, sodden ground, and
half the time not even the dull leaden
sky above was vif-ible through the damp
ceiling of the think fore3t of trees over
our heads. Looking like veritable evil
spirits in the half-light were the ugly
dwarfs, with their tiny bows and poisoned
arrows, shooting at us from their lurking
places as we hacked and hewed our way.
"At first we regarded these insicnifi
cant, pot-bellied and atrociously ugly
little wretches with a good deal of con
tempt. What could they do against
such pecple as we, with our breech
loaders? Ah, but they aoon taught ua to
respect them, as man after man fella
victim to their poisoned arrows. They
came near getting my first officer, Lieu
tenant Stairs; he carried the point of
one ol their arrows in his breast for four
teen months before it came away. One
inch closer to the heart and it would
have killed him."
A Frightened itlan.
A telephone message waa received at
the police station yesterday from come
man who declared that there was a mad
dog at No. 218, South Hill 'street and
that a policeman wiih a gun was needed
to kill it. It appears that there are some
people who will never learn that hy
drophobia is an unknown article in Cali
fornia. A small dog was found in the
neighborhood cutting up in a peculiar
fashion, but tbe animal was very far
from being mad. The neighbors said
that the man was badly frightened and
had sent bis little son out to drive the
dog away, while he himself hid in tbe
house.
THE RAILWAYS.
An Important Letter From Mr.
Taylor-.* small Excursion.
Major E. W. Jones recently received a
letter from Thomas Taylor, of Cedar City,
relative to railway matters in Utah arid
Nevada. He says that heavy snows have

quotes Mr. Cameron as stating that it
waa President Adams's wish that the
extension of tho Utah Central should be
pushed as rapidly aa poasible, which is
said to mean thua far a rato of a mile a
day., Mr. Cameron also told Mr. Taylor
that Mr. Adams had aaid the line would
come to Los Angeles.
Mr. Taylor waa ono of the first to dis
cover the fact that thero was some other
road at work endeavoring to get to Los
Angeles besides the Union Pacifi j, and
the information waa made public by the
Herald. Mr. Taylor saya that there are
'two companies of surveyora at work in
Utah for thi? other iine, aud he thinks
they mean buaineea. He sugge-eta that
whatever subsidies are offered from Los
Angeles come in the shape of a proposit ion
to the railroad which shall build into this
city first. Ho saya that the Utah, Ne
vada and California Company, with a
capital of twenty millions, have secured
a right-of-way through the city of Prove
for two years. Mr. Tiernan, the presi
dent, conducted the negotiations.

IMPORTANT LETTERS.
Major Joins- Correspondence—A
I'OMtal Regulation.
Major E. W. Joi.ee, in his capacity of
President of the Chamber of Commerce,

lic interest. Several of these wore in
spected yesterday. A recent letter from
General V&ndever announced that the

authorities suggesting that this regula

respondence making the circuit, espe
cially in a season when washouts were
likely to occur. R. W Haynes. one of
ihe assistant postmasters, replies, an
nouncing that the suggestion had been
adopted and the time lengthened to four

Major .Tones recently had a letter from
James E. Carries, the librarian of the

partly for himself, and he remarks that
he takes a lively interest in this section,

The following letter wbb received at the
II f.rald office Monday evening, but was
not printed with the decision of the Court
in the James case, because of the great
amount of news there waa to handle. The
letter referred to by Mr. Jamee appeared
attached to the decision in the Herald
yesterday:
Editors Herald—Permit me to say
that I am in no way whatever responsi
ble for the letter addressed to Judge
Clark in regard to my case, and purport
ing to come from a friend of mine. I
was not consulted by any person about
it, I did not write it, nor give my perm is
sion that it should be written, and none
is more indignant than I that any pro
fessed friend of mine should seek to in
fluence the Court on my behalf. I fc ave
withheld my defense until now. acting
under legal advice, and because I h aV e
ever held the idea that the Amorican
people were too just to judge a man from
the statements of one side, and especially
when that side was necessarily preju
diced.
As to the proprietor of this paper be
ing friendly towards me—as stated in the
anonymous letter—if the columns of his
paper are any index to hia state of feel
ing towards me, his friendship manifests
itself in an exceedingly singular man
ner. At the name time, I am free to
confess I would rather have such out
spoken expresaions againßt me, than the
sly, crafty, cunning and sneaking under
mining of my character attempted by
professed frienda whoee dastardly con
duel I ahall ere lorur. expose.
Being perfectly innocent of any wrong
doing, I have kept closed lip B) a ml I
shall continue to do co until the proper
time, but I here wish it to be distinctly
nnderstood that I ahall use every legal
method within my power to hinder a
wicked and adulterous wife from gaining
a divorce from me upon false and nnjdst
grounds. Faithfully yours,
Geouok W. James.
<>eorgrism.
Editors Herald—Mr. George says
that neither labor nor capital ahoild be
taxed, but all needed revenues for ail
purposes should be derived from land
values.
Thia system would place the moat
burdensome taxation on one claea of
labor ever deviaed by the brain of man.
Land has but little practical value ex
cent what may bo developed by labor.
It ia true that in a state of nature land
producea a spontaneous growth upon
which wild animala fit for human food
subsist. But they are of no use until
prepared for such food by the labor of
the hunter.
In settled communities lands are only
valuable on account of being utilized by
labor for the production of crops or for
building purposes; or, if not so utilized
at present, the practicability of their
being thUR utilised in the future. In any
case, land can only be made valuable by
labor. With >ut labor it would bo prac
tically worthless. The labor required to
cultivate the soil and build houses is the
main thing that adds to the original
nominal value of land. It is true that
land and houses in or near a large city
are more valuable than similar lands and
houeea far remote from the cily, bat
without labor they would be
equally valueless in either case
Land that can neither be cultivated nor
uaed for building purposes or for mining
must forever remain without value.
Hence labor ia the foundation, the groat
essential thing upon which reals the
value of all land.
Now when Mr. George wculd levy all
taxes on land values tie would simply
tax the labor thtt develops and utilizss
thoee lands; consequently the entire
taxes of the country would have to be
paid by the labor of those who till the
aoil or build houses.
On Sunday evening I asked Mr.
George whether the farmers under his
system would not have to add the
amount of their extra taxes to the price
of their farm products, thus increasing
Ihe price of human food. He answered
that such would not be the reeult, How
ever, I know 4hat if, under the George
system of taxation, the price of farm
products did not advance in proportion
to the increased taxation, that
the present occupants or owners
of land could not cultivate
it more than one year, but would then
ba sold out for taxes, and thua, at one
fell swoop, would be destroyed the foun
dation of our society, the dearest and
most sacred spot on earth, the home
stead.
But for the sake of argument wo will
give Mr. George the benefit of hia own
theories, and It naturally and logically
follows that he, the great champion of
labor, proposes a system that would free
Jay Gould, Vanderbilt, and all such men
from all taxation, and fasten the whole
burden upon the labor of tho«e who till
the coil and build houses. Without labor
the land can pay nothing, consequently
the labor that makes the land available
or productive would pay al) taxes. And
then what a glorious time the non-tax
payers, money sharks, dead beats and
loafera would have in inducing the Fed
eral, State and municipal authorities to
make extravagant expenditures.

lie Wants an official Fool-KlHrr.
Editors Herald—Being, perhaps un
fortunately, the owner of a house in thia
Angelic City, I today found left on the
premises a printed notice, signed by the
City Engineer, notifying me that certain
numbera should be affixed on the house
"aa required by Ordinance No. 499,
paased December 20, 1889, and that un
less you comply with the provisions of
said ordinance within five days, you will
be subjected to the penalty therein pro
vided, of a fine of not less "than $10, nor
more than $30, or imprisonment in the
County Jail fur not lees than ten daya,
nor more than thirty days."
Thia strikes ma aa altogether too mild
a threat for a free country, and I auggeet
the addition of a lien on the premiaea, to
be followed by a Bale to the neareat
curbatone eh.irk for painter's costa. I
would further suggest, as equally prac
ticable and constitutional, that the Coun
cil appoint a city fool-killer, whose
function will be, in detecting any City
Father in tbe £ct of doing anything
sensible, or, for the matter of that, any
thing honest, to kill him without any
notice whatever, and so avoid the ex
