SALVATION LASSIE ADDIE JANN.
She Makes a Fearful Charge
Against Her Father.
Charges and Counter Charges in a
Downey Trespass Case.
The Cbbo of Sc.hlebler vs. Behnsen _
Matters in the United States
Court—New «ulta Filed.
Court Notes.
The trial began yesterday in depart
ment one of the superior court before,
Judge Smith and a jury of Chris Jann,
accused of the rape of his young
daughter Addie Jann, now a member of
the Salvation army.
The defendant waa tried several weeks
ago npon a charge of incest, but the tes
timony which was taken Upon the trial
showed a crime of rape, if auy crime
was committed, and a new information
waß filed by the district attorney charg
ing the latter offense.
The story of the young girl at the firat
trial was of Buch a nature that it could
not he published, it being in suba ance
that her father had taken improper lib
erties witb her for a period of time
stretching over three or four years past,
the first time beiug when she was only
13 years old
When the case waa called yeaterday
there were a number of epectatore who
wiehed to hear the testimony, among
them being 15 or 20 women who ap
peared greatly interested in tbe case.
It took aome time to impanel the jury,
and it was necessary tf have a special
venire. Tho follow Jg jurors were
finally selected.
Orville B. Allen, . T . Q. Adama, J. H.
Barnhill, Leonard O. .Hark. Oscar Chese
brough, Edward W. F.tilor. Arthur F.
Gilmore, A. Davis, D. VV. Roland, Mil
lard Fillmore, John Hardwick and Tony
Meamer.
Calvin Edgerton, counael for the de
fendant, interposed a plea of former
jeopardy and also of a former acquittal
when the charge waß incest. He then
moved to have the trial conducted with
closed doors, stating tbat it waa not a
caee in which the disgusting details
would subserve any public good to be
heard by spectators. The court granted
the motion, and at the suggestion of
District Attorney Dupuy even went so
far as to order eeveral attorneys out of
the room, quite an unusual proceeding,
in view of their being a privileged clape.
The women who were occupying seats in
the court room were exceedingly loath
to go out, and the court repeated hia
order several times before they slowly
and reluctantly left the room.
The first witness called waa the girl,
Addie Jann, who was dressed in the reg
ulation Salvation army uniform, and
looked quite neat and coquettish. The i
firßt question almOßt asked by Mr. Du
puy brought the case to a standstill. It
was in rpgard to the girl's age.
Mr. Edgerton objected to her answer
ing the question on the ground that she
could not know of her own knowledge
and that the answer would be incompe
tent.
Tbere was some argument upon the
question, after the jury had been ex
cluded, aud tbe court finally took the |
matter under advißernent until thia
morning.
It Is quite an important point for tbe
defendant. They have no family records
showing the date of the girl's birth, hia
wife cannot testify againßt him. and be
will not, co that if the ago of the prose
cuting Witness cannot bo legally ascer- >
tamed, the caee ia liable to collapse.
A TRESPASS APPEAL CASE.
Charges and Counter-Chnrges Between
Neighbor*.
An appeal caee from a justice's court
at Downey was on trial before Judge
Wade yeßterday afternoon, in which
the length to which neighborhood quar
rels often go was Bhown very clearly.
The.case waß one of trespass, brought
by R N. Walton vb. Mrs. E. O'Connell,
and Justice Settle of Downey gave judg
ment for the defendant, from which the
plaintiff appealed.
The parties to the suit occupied ad
joining land near Downey. The plaint
iff and Albert Langshaw had three lots
in the California Co-operative colony
tract, and aUege that between May 1,
1892, and June 1, 1892, Mre. O'Connell
was the owner of 35 head of cattle, aod
that the animals trespassed on their
land, destroying "hay, grain and ver
dure" to the amount of $299, for which
amount judgment was aeketl.
Langshaw transferred hie claim for
damagee to Walton, in whose name the
Buit waß brought.
Mrs. O'Connell, in her anewer, claims
that about the date referred to lo tbe
complaint, the plaintiff had cattle pas
turing on her land in tbe care of several
herders. She admits tbat the cattle en
tered plaintiff's land, but with his con
sent and tbat of Langshaw aleo. She
also alleges that Walton drove the
herders away trcm the cattle, with the
purpose of a'lowing tbem to do some
damage and get a caee againßt her, be
cause tbey had a grudge against her.
Out of this strained situation bitter
feeling aroao, neighbors were dragged
into it, and yesterday, when the case
wae called, there were numerous wit
nesses from the neighborhood in attend
ance, each side being engaged in tbe
earnest endeavor to prove the other pre
varicators. Several witneSßfcß were ex
amined during the afternoon and the
caße will be resumed this morning. In
connection with the case a criminal
charge has arisen against Mrs. O'Con
nell, againet whom a complaint has been
filed in Justice Bartholomew's court in
this city, charging her with suborna
tion of perjury in the procuring of cer
tain evidencs on the trial before Justice
Settle. She has been arrested on this
charge and her examination has been
Bet for January 3()th.
Experts Were Needed.
The caee of Sehiebler ye. Behneen,
which has been going on in Judge Mc-
Kinley'e ccurt for two days past,
hae developed come interesting features,
in which certain documents are charged
to be forgsriee. The suit, while only
upon a promissory note for fSUS 85, has
involved the introduction of several ex
perts on hnnd-writing ou both sides.
The note in tjueltion was given at Del
6ur, in September, 1801, by tho de
fendant and his wife. The defendant
claims that the note was extorted In a
fraudulent manner, and aske that the
plaintiff take nothing by his suit.
It ie alleged by the defendant tbat the
plaintiff and bio wife prepared an order
addressed to himeelf aud purporting to
No Antl-Pyrtiie ln Bromo-BeUser.
Cures all headaches; 10 cents a bott'.e.
he siened by Herman Behnsen, request
ing him to pay the plaintiff the sum of
money in controversy. The plaintiff
represented that the order was genuine,
and by his ropreeentaliort Henry Bebn-
Een and wife eigne., the note. It ia al
leged that tliif order was a forgery, and
the legal struggle in the case has be
come quite exciting, quite a number of
witnesses being prevent yeaterday dnr
ing tbe introduction of testimony. The
case will be,"resume.i this morning,

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 19, IC9B.
CHIEF MORONGO AND HIS PEOPLE
The Ruler of the Potrero Res-
ervation in Town.
He Describes Some of the Political
Dissensions Among the Tribes.
Ills Subjects Making Great Progress us
Baucbfirs ou Their Lands Near
Banning—Tho School
Facilities.
Juan Morongo, chief of the Banning
liuliane, wae in the city yeßterday. He
is a character in his wav and is well
kuown to the people of this country.
The old man holdß his commission di
rect from Washington. Besides being
chief of the Potrero reservetion he is
also the head man oyer four other chiefs
of various reservations about Banning.
Hiß duties consist mainly of going where
there is trouble among the Indians and
endeavoring to settte amicably all of
their dissensions.
He was in Perris Tuesday night stay
ing at the government's new Indian
echool building, and came to Los Angeles
yesterday. The purpose of Chief John's
trip was to obtain (roni Indian Agent
Rust the commießion of Joaquin lores
as chief pro tern of the Desert Indians,
vice Chief William VViliiam who is now
sick. Jorquin accompanied Chief John.
A Hekalo reporter had a talk with
tho chief yesterday and found turn to be
very well informed. He talks very good
English and speaks to the point.
"Tell me something of tho Banning
Indians, chief?"
"Weil, at the last cenBUB taken two
years ago there were 192 persons in the
Potrero reservation. I' is situated about
three miles to tbe northeast of Banning.
A short time ago the government de
cided tbat all heads of families were to
receive 20 acreß of land for farming and
100 acres for pasturage. Those over 21
years of age get 10 aires. There iB water
to all of this land, and tbe men receive
patent grant. Tbe land is situated near
tbe foothills, and the people are all do
ing nicely. They plant beans, barley,
corn, vegetables and fruit. A great,
many of tbem are planting barley, and
there will be a good sized crop this year.
Fruit treeß are e'so planted. On the
bind that I cultivate I have set out 300
apple trees.
"Formerly the people did not like to
work and cared only to make a living.
Now it is different, they want to make
come hing more."
"What schools have you?"
"There is a government day school in
Bar. ning, which has about 20 pupils in
attendance. The Catholics have a school
about one mile north of Banning. They
have a contract wi'h tbe United States
government by which they get a certain
sum of money for pupil they take
charge of. It ia a hoarding school, and
there are about 100 pupils enrolled.
They are not taught any prrticular
trade, but the girls learn how to eew.
The Indians like this faith very well.
There is also a Moravian missionary and
hia wife on the reservation. They have
no day school, but bold church and Sun
day Bchool. The school at Perriß will
be opened very soon, and will
bold about 150 pupils. About eight
children from our reservation wiil at
tend. I have a little girl 13 years old
who is learning to play the piano and I
will eend ber to Perria. The boys can
not be taught any t.ade there at pres
ent because the appiopriution was not
Urge enough to erevt the buildings
necessary for thiß purpose."
"Is it true that Mr. Rust is not pop
ular and should be removed as agent?"
"No. The reason that some of the
people do not like bim is because he
will not let them have their own way.
On our reservation there iB a young fel
low n».med Will Pablo who ran away
fiom t'a wife and two babies und while
drunk killed another Indian. A
number of the tribe said
tbat they wanted bim for their chief,
but Mr. RiiHt said no, for if he could not
take care of his family he could not
take care of the reservation. The chief
muat be a man of family who could be
depended upon. Tbia made tbem very
mad, and they circulated petitions and
told things to tbe newspapers, trying
every way to have Mr. Rust removed.
"Down with the Desert Indians there
waß an old chief named Cabazon. He
would do nothing for hie people aud
they got tired of him. They told bim a
number of timea to come to the meeting
for they were going to bold an election.
But be would not come. Finally they
held an election and chose William Wil
liam for the chief. Old Cabazon re
fused to go away, and still wanted
to be chief. The Indians told
Mr. Rust and be told Cabazon
that William William waß the chief,
Cabazon got. mad and he too haa tried to
have Mr. Ruet put out. These are the
only compiaiutß ugainßt Mr. Rust and
tbey are made only by tbe bad fellows
of the reservations. The good oneß are
eatiefied witb Mr. Rust."
"Tell of the attempts made to poison
you about a year ago?"
"I bad bought some fresh meat in
Banuing one evening and brought it
home, putting it in the milk house. 1
had a piece of the meat for supper. The
next day my wife, when she waß putting
it on the table said that something was
tbe matter with it, aB it wae
awfully bitter. I did not cay
anything to her because I
thought abe waß mistaken. The meat
couhl not have become spoiled in that
time. She tasted it, and again said it
was too bitter to eat. I paßsed it to a
Mexican, who works for me, and after
tasting a piece be, too, Baid that it
was bitter. Then I took a piece, but it
left Buch an awful bitter taste in my
mouth that I told my wife to give it to
tbe dogs, thinking it had spoiled. I did
not swallow auy of the meat.
"I went into the yard aud in a little
while one of my girls came running to
me and said that the dog was sick. I
ran back to the house, and knew at
once that the dog had been poisoned. It
died, as did several cats, in a little
while.
"I never could find out who put the
The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Hoiaes— 40 Years the Standard
poison on the meat. Tho door to the
milk bouse was not locked, and the per
son who did it could have gotten into
the bouse very easily. It was done at
tbe time that the trouble with Will
Pablo waa in progrese."
THE REFORMERS.
Home Meaaures on Which They Want
Legislative Action.
The various sub committees oi the
Citizens' Nou-Partiaan Reform aesocin
tion have been working steadily ever
Bince the last general meeting of tbe
organization, although they have held
but few formal meetings.
Whenever any member deairea that
action on come needed reform be taken,
he gets a quorum of tho committee to
gether in any rffice and tbe matter is
discussed. Olten they meet on the
street and decide what ia to be done.
Mr. Clarence A. Miller is the attorney
of the aeeociation. Whenever the com
mittees take decisive action on anything
they turn if over to Mr. Miller,
to be drawn up in proper
legal shape, ready to be presented to
the legislature for action.
The last resolutions given to him are
one for the reduction of the commis
sions of tho county assessor and another
to look into the legislative enactments,
to ascertain whether the police and fire
depanmenta can i.ot be conducted ao
as to be kept out of politics.
Mr. Bulla haa presented a hill before
the legislature to the effect that delin
quent tax sales recur to the state. Tnia
ib in line with a rimiiar res ilntion
adopted by a recent meeting of the bar
of the city. The resolution further pro
vides that the land will be held redeem
able for five yeare upon payment of a
certain aum of money, to be increased
each succeeding year until paid.
JESSIE MARSHALL TO MARRY.
Mr. T. Liwr.nca of Philadelphia to
Wed it- r Today.
A wedding is to take place this after
noon wbich will cause some general in
tereat, Mr. L T. Lawrence of Philadel
phia will be united to Mias Jessie Mar
shall, who will be remembered as the
plaintiff in a suit for damages against a
wealthy resident of Oceanside, San
Diego county, named Jacob Taylor.
Mias Marshall was awarded a verdict of
$25,000 by a Los Angelea jury, but it ia
aaid that the defendant co arranged his
property that the plaintiff found it dif
ficult to collect the judgment. The
matter, however, ia now before the su
preme court, and will be heard from it
ib thought about the 22d ma ant.
Somo time ago Miaa Marahall and
her mother, a Mrs. Wilßon, were
again brought into prominence by
the arrest of a Mr. Crandall,
on a charge of having defrauded life in
surance companiea by pretending he
was dead and permitt ing hia former wife
in Buffalo to collect the policies which
he bad secureJ. He had lived in South
ern California for Borne time, and had
married Mrs. Wilson.
Mr. Lawrence states that he iB a mem
ber of the Blatt of the Philadelphia Rec
ord, and pmpoeea to in ike his home in
this city. He knew Miss Marshall in
the east before he came to California,
and h ! *! affection for her haß been only
increased by the trouble abe haa had to
endure.
HIGH SCHOOL. SALARIES.
Iheir licit action aud the Deficiency
Further lMscuaned.
Tho interview with Mrs. Margaret
Hughes on the reductian of the high
echool teachers' salaries, as effected at
the last meeting of the board of educa
tion, haß aroused acme feeling among
her co-membera. Messrs. W. N. Bueh
ler, F. W. Stein and James ABhman of
the board yeßterday concurred in the
following expression of their views on
the matter:
"The board of education of laat year
left a deficiency of $24,(100 to be taken
care of by the incoming board, and on
top of that, at their laat meeting they
raised tbe ealariea of tbe teachera in the
high echool. Now they want to saddle
the blame for rescinding thia action on
tbe new board.
"If the old board were aware of the
fact that they had wronged the»teacberß
of the high school, why did they not put
their ealariea back to the old" echedule
at the beginning of the term? The ap
propriation from the city for laat year
was $107,000, of which tbe last board
spent in round numbers $02,000 in six
months, leaving the new board only
$15,000 'or the next six monthß, which
would leave them a deficiency of over
$10,000 at the end of tho next fiscal year,
if they only paid the teacher •' and jan
itors' salaries, without spending any
moneys for improvements or repairs."

AB'fjgm&EDi PURE
FEES PAID BUT NO JOB HAD.
Laborers' Complaint Against an
Employment Agency.
G. H.Smith and T. J. Gallagher Ar
rested on the Men's Charge.
It Xs Claimed That the Kmployment
Agency Collected a Fee from the
Men and Then Sent Them ou
a Wild Goose Chase,
G. H. Smith and T. J. Gallagher were
arrested yeaterday afternoon on the
charge of obtaining property by false
pretenßea. Smith waa arrested by Offi
cer Craig and taken to the central police
station and Gallagher waß arrested by
Officer Gua Smith and Detective Bosqui,
on a warrant sworn out before Justice
Austin by Daniel O'Neill.
Tne men keep a so-called employment
office on First street, between Spring
and Main. Bail in each caee was fixed
at $100. Neither succeeded in giving
bond and were locked up.
Late yesterday afternoon a crowd of
15 or 20 angry and excited laboring men
beseigcd the otfice of Chief of Police
Glaes, and each began relating his al
leged troubles with Smith & Uallagher.
According to their statements tbey had
eacb paid to the firm eumß ranging from
50 cents to $3, for which,
they allege, they were guaran
teed work at $1 75 a day. Tbey
were sent to Mr. Grill, who is superin
tending the excavating on Second and
Hill etreete. They were told tbat there
was no work for them and that the
agency had not been authorized to em
ploy help, as none was needed there.
The angry laborers came back in a body
and demanded tbe return of their I
money, which demand, they allege, wae I
refused.
The laborers then boeeiged tbe chief'a
office. Cierk Moffatt took their names,
their complaints were listened to, and
tbe warrants aud arreßts followed.
The superintendent of the excavating
work at Second and Hill streets, stated
to a Herald reporter:
"Smith and Gallagher bavaboth been
out here, asking us to employ men
whom they might send üb. I told them
that we did not need the services of an
employment agency; that I could pick
up on the etreets all the men that we
wanted; we did not authorize the
agency to send ua men—we employ men
by selecting them ourselves."
Tbe manager of a reputable employ
ment agdncy said to a Herald reporter:
"It ie tbe practice and tbe rule of em
ployment agencies to refund to appli
canta the feea paid by them when they
do not get work. For instance: An
order ia sent in for a laborer. We have
a man on our books who has paid us a
fee to get him employment. We send
him with an order to that place. But if
the place has already been filled or the
applicant dots not get the place, we re
fund the fee. Again, if we send a man
out into tbe country aud he does not get
ttie position we refund the fee, but tbe
person to whom he ia conaignsd muat
pay that man's expenses from and back
to the city. The employer must aign
an agreement to that efftct before we
will Bend an applicant out of tbe city.

Not from a Financial Standpoint
"I do not recommend Chamberlain's
Cough remedy from a financial stand
point, for we have othera in stock on
which we make a larger profit," says
Al. Maggini, a prominent druggist of
Braddock, Perm., "but because many of
our customers bave spoken of it in the
higheet praise. We sell more of it than of
any similar preparation we have in the
store." For sale by 0. F. Heinzeman,

to Senator White.
Hie chamber of commerce was so
elated over tho news of the Interna

The chamber of commerce would do
well to tendera public reception to United
States Senator-elect Stephen M. Wbite
on bis arrival in the city. The matter
will be brought before the directors this
week.
The chamber received 2500 informa
tion pamphlets nf Southern California
from Rand, & Co., Chicago,
Tuesday, and 2*oo more yesterdsy.
These are a new supply of the books de
scriptive of this country ip»ued by the
chamber last year. They are being
widely circulated and have been produc
tive of much good for this section.
Yesterday's contributions were Nicka
jack apples from L. C. Mason, Artesia;
Eureka lemons, J. A. Smith, Artesia;
seedling oranges and white winter Pear
mains, J. VV. Branch, Artesia; navel
oranges off of 3 year-old trees, Robert

BUSINESS PICKING UP.
An Indicative Fact from Wells-Fargo'a
Offloe.
There is no better indication of gen
eral affaire in any locality than the bus
iness done by Wells, Fargo & Co.
Mr. William Fiidbam, the general
manager of the company in this city,
stated yesterday, in reply to questions
from a Herald reporter, that the com
pany's business in this city during the
past three months had increased at an
unprecedented rate, and had exceeded
all former figures.
"The revival is not confined to gen
eral business, but extends to real emate
aB well," said Mr. Pridham. "I just
learned of an offer of $30 000 cash which
waß made today for a piece of property
that no one could do anything with a
year ago. Everything points to greatly
increased prosperity."
Mr. Pridham showed the reporter a
pleasantly worded circular signed by
President Valentine, announcing the
presentation to every employe of the
company of a world's fair souvenir half
dollar, as a token of the esteem the men
are held in by the company. .
