LILLIAN AND MAUD EMBRACED.
Mr. Dickson Denies the At tempted Suicide. They Smelled Gas but Conld Not Tell Where It Came From. AJt. and Mrs. Dickson Evidently Are ;j»uch Enamored of Each. Other and the Incog Uonipany Is Happy. Tbs Herald Rome days ago exclu sively published the account of the nar row escape from asphyxiation at the Madeau hotel of Miss Lillian Burckhardt ol the Incog company, who, off the stage, is known as Mrs. Charles Dickson, wife of the well-known comedian. Aa stated then Miss Burkhardt was found laat Saturday night in her room at the Nadeau in an unconscious condition, the gas being turned on full and all tbe windows being closed. It was rumored that Miss Burckhardtthought ehe had reasons for being jealous of her hus band's attentions to MisßMaud Haslam, the leading lady of tbe company. The Btockton Mail of Tuesday giyee the following iurther details aboui the matter: The dispatch from Lob Angeleß pub lished in yesterday's issue of the Mail concerning Mr. and Mrs. George Dick son and Miss Maud Haslam of the Incog company was referred to the in terested ones last night by a Mail re porter, and they denied in toto the story of Mrs. Dickson's attempted sui cide and her alleged jealousy of Miss Haslam. But in various ways it waa learned that there was a scene in the Nadeau hotel in Los Angeles, where tbe troupe was staying, that might reason ably give rise to the suicide rumor. SAID TO HAVE BEEN HYSTERIA. It seems that Mrs. Dickson, whose stage name is Lillian Burckhardt, has not been in good health for some time. She is of a highly nervous temperament, anyway, and her illness, which is some what of a seriouß nature, has a strong tendency to aggravate her sensitive con dition; and it must be apparent that the .part of the laughing girl which she plays in Incog has not a tendency to im prove her nervous Btate. It may be sur mised from this explanation that Mrs. Dickson is inclined to hysteria, and it was a spell of this kind, according to those who claim to know all about it, which led to the trouble in Los Angeles. Mr. Dickson wanted his wife to go ahead of the company to Salt Lake or Denver and rest there until they ariived. He argued that ahe would never recover if she insisted on playing the one night stands, or even moving witb the troupe so rapidly. Mrß. Dickson was not in clined to act upon tbe suggestion, and exclaimed wit h tbe petulance of a young wife, when Mr. Diclißon ineisted that this was the best thing for her to do, that he wanted to get rid of her, or made some other remark equivalent to that. By that time ehe waa in Buch a nervous state that ehe could not play. Mrß. Connelly, the wife of tho tal ented Ed. J. Connelly, another member of the troupe, is Mrs. Dickson's undat- Btudy, and her services are kept wholly in reserve in anticipation of Mrs. Dick- Bon's sickness or passing indisposition. Mrs. Connelly played that night. A HONEYMOON SPAT. Mr. and Mrs. Dickßon are yet in their honeymoon, having married in Cincin nati only six or seven weeks ago, and the members of the company regarded the little tiff between them as some thing to be laughed at. As a young hus band Mr. Dickson was inclined to think more seriously of the matter. When* the players returned to the hotel Gustav Yorke and another one of the troupe were sent as messengers to Mra. Dick son's apart men is to invite her tv join her husband and the several members of the company at their customary mid night lunch. Mr. Yorke got no response to his knock. He listened, and all was still. Then he entered. He caw two unoccu pied rooma with a bathroom adjoining. The gas was burning brightly. No big theatrical trunks were in eight. Mr. Yorke thought of that lovers' quarrel, and an exciting sequel flashed across his imaginative mind in an instant. "She has run away," was the thought, and Mr. Yorke, followed by messenger No. 2, went tearing down stairs, and rush ing into the presence of the players, he exclaimed dramatically: "My God! She is not there! She haa gone witb the trunks and everything." A scene of bustle and confusion fol lowed. Mre. Dickson had not gone. The ex planation was eimple. There was a bedroom beyond the bathroom. It had been engaged by the Dicksona. Mr. Yorke didn't know it. The trunks were in there. So was Mrs. Dickson. The door waa locked ou the inside. More excitement waa to follow. When an entrance wan made the smell of gas was strong, and Mre. Dickson was iouud in a weak condition, A doctor wae hastily summoned, and she was soon all right. It became whispered around then that ehe had attempted suicide by asphyxiation. "ONLY SEWER OAS." Mr. Doblin, the manager of the Incog company, invited the Mail man to Mr. Dickson's dressing room between the acts last night. "I want this thing Bet right," said he, "becauae a great in justice has been done Miss Haslam by the published dispatches, and bb for Mr. Dickson, tbere never was a more de voted husband." "It's all rot," eaid Mr. Dickson, "and there is not tbe slightest foundation for putting my name and Miss Haslam'B together. Nobody knows that better than Mrs. Dickson. isn't that so, dear?" he added, turning to hiß wife. "Why, certainly, Oeorge," eaid'Bhe, smiling sweetly. "I told Mrs. Dickson," eaid her hus band, and he gently patted her cheek once or twice, and then took her hand and patted it as he spoke, "tbat she had better play here tonight to dispel any doubt about her usual health and our domestic harmony. Were it not ior thiß reason I would insist upon her re maining off the stage for a while, be cause Bhe is really in no condition for excitement. "Now, as regards that gas business, my wife knows nothing about it. We smelled gas, but did not find out where it came from. It wae perceptible at any time all over the hotel, but par ticularly so in this closed room. I think lii■>'.,, it wae sewer gaß." Then Miss Haßlam waa summoned, and she endorsed the statement made by Mr. Dickson. "There never hae been any feeling but friendliness between "When pain and anguish wring the brow A mlalssdring aagsl tuou"—Bromo Sol tzer. Mrs. Dickson and myself," she re marked. The two beautiful women smiled sweetly at each other, and during the conversation they graceiully posed in each other's embrace. THAT FROST IN FLORIDA. None of tho Leading Commission Houses Know I im : uin . About it. Yesterday morning a rumor was cur rent on the streets that an Arctic bliz zard had shot along the entire Atlantic coast, extending down into Florida and damaging the orange crop oi that state very Beriously. As the orange crnp of Florida comes into market about live to six weeks later than tbat of Southern California, and as the failure of the crop in Florida would necessarily create an augmented de • mond for Southern California citrus fruits, a Herald raporter.waa dispatched to interview come of the commission houses with reference to the extent ot the Florida blizzard. He first went to the Earl Fruit com pany, where he found Mr. Earl was out of town, but the gentleman who waß in charge of affairs said he bad heard of the reported frost in Ftorido, but had no definite reports from any of the eastern correspondents of the bouse. The re porter then went down to the Germain company's warehouses on Loa Angelea street, and the young gentleman at the desk had heard nothing of the blizzard in Florida. He admitted, however, that it true ii meant higher priceß for California orangee. THE AGENTS CONVICTED. GALLAGIIER AND SMITH EACH SEN TENCED TO A FINE. • Poweleon's Case Again Continued by Justice Austin—AXlnor Cases Which Were Acted On Yesterrlfty. T. J. Gallagher and G. H. Smith, the 80-called emoloyment agents, pleaded not guilty and were tried by the court. They were ably defended by Attorney Moye G. Norton, who succeeded in get ting them a light sentence inj,the face of overwhelming evidence. Witnesses were examined but the main points of the testimony did not vary from the facts printed in the Herald yesterday. It waa proved to the satisfaction of the court that the prisoners accepted moneys from the laborers applying for positions, knowing that no positions could be guaranteed, and had,6ent them to places for work from which no orders had come. The prisoners were found guilty, waived time for sentence and were each sen tenced to pay a line of $25 or the alter native of 25 days imprisonment. In Jiißtice Seaman's court yesterday Ihe caseß of G. W. Burgess, W. H. Don nel, Jack Rodriguez and J. M. Rollins were continued until the 20th inst. They are charged with a misdemeanor in cutting the limbs from some trees on complainant's property for the purpose of putting up au eltctric wire. Justice Austin vesteiday continued the case of Frank Powelson until the 2MJ inst. He is charged with battery in blackening the eye of a disreputable woman in a low resort on Alameda street. W. H. Warner, a troublesome vagrant, was sentenced to 90 days' imprison uent. George Hebbsrt was convicted of petit larceny in stealing a coat, and will be sentenced today. A warrant was eworn out in Justice Austin's court against E. E. Sawyer, on the corriplaint of F. E. Sturgis. Saw yer is charged with battery. He was arraigned for trial, and hia bail fixed at $50. Sawyer is a conductor on a Boyle Heights* car, and is charged with kicking the complainant, who inaisted on riding upon the car without paying the customary nickel. Sawyer demanded a jury trial. Detective Gus Smith found an incor rigible youth, known among the newa gamins as Tony, in a private room in a lodging house on Fourth and Main etreets last evening. The boy gave as an excuse that he waa trying to sell pa pers, but as he had been arreated on two other occaeiona, under similar cir cumstances, he was taken to the police station. Tony ia about 5 yeara of age aDd iB about aa large as a piece of chalk. Officer Smith stood him up on the clerk's deßk and Clerk Heneley questioned him about hia incorrigible conduct. He was then shown the interior of a dark cell, and on promising to behave in the fu ture was turned loose, and lost no time in leaving the station. A DISTINGUISHED HONOR. Oen. Torres ie Callod to Important M 111- tary Unties. Gen. Luis E. Torres, governor of tbe state of Sonora and of the northern hall of Lower California, and who haa many frieuda hero, waa called to the City of Mexico by President Diaz on the 2(sth ult„ Bays the San Diego Union, and tendered the appointment of c lief of the Eleventh military zone of the re public. The appointment ia regarded in the light of a high honor and a deserved reward for distinguished services. The acceptance of the post by General Torres will necessitate nil resignation aa gov ernor of the northern district of the peninsula, a change greatly regretted by residents of tbe peninsula and by all Americana an either aide of the line. lienßral Torres will be retained, how ever, aa governor of Sonora and aa eenior senator from Sinaloa to the Mexican congress.

LOS ANGELES TTERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 20, 1*93. PETER JACKSON ON EXHIBITION The Australian Pugilist at Turnverein Hall. He and Frank Childs Do Some Easy Sparring. The Australian Greeted by a Large bnt Unenthusiastlc Audience—A Talk with the lilt; Fellow About Ills Profession. An opportunity was given to the sport loving public last evening to Bee the Australian colored pugilist, Peter Jackßon, at the Turnverein ball. The house was filled with spectators, but little or no enthusiasm was shown. A number of preliminary rounds were given between local men and excited little intereat until Peppers, the ex-long distance rider, aud Cotton appeared for f< ur rounds. Peppers is the man who did up a lot of San Francisco Sports who tried to md me bim recently to engage in a false contest. His hands were in a frightful condition last night, he being unable to close them at all. Thia fact the audience of course did not know, and they could not understand why Peppers did not mix it up more. Cotton is a wonderfully muscular fellow, ac agile as a kitten, and looks ns ii he could put up a good contest. Parson Davies then introduced Frank Childs, the local heavy weight, and Peter Jackson, the Australian. Jackson is not in condition, but showed up a wonderfully handsome figure, which is moulded ou such symmetrical lines as to hardly deceive one aa to the extent of hiß muscular development. His arms are co long as to give them the appear ance of being slender. Childa wae Inly a head, if not more, Bborter than his opponent, but aa re gards breadth of shoulders, and proba bly circumference cf biceps, he is not far behind the antipodean. The five rounds were characterized by friendly sparring, and served to show nothing as to the ability of either man, beyond their quiokueeß and the fact that each was capable of hard work. A TALK WITH PETER. Parson Davies and Peter Jackson did not show themselves much on the street yesterday. The conqueror of Slavin kept hie room, where he was visited during the afternocn by a number of the Bporting gentry. To those who have only seen Jackson in training, with those wonderfully tapered legs aa hard as iron, he presented an odd ap pearance. Hia weight is now about 218 pounds and he has a Bort of indolent look that is quite the reverse of his character. Jackson is not an Australian by birth but was taken there when a child by his father, who was Bteward on a Bailing vessel. His place of nativity was one of the West India islands. One thing is always to be Baid of Peter—his language is always courteous and never protane or vulgar. A man could meet him daily for a year and never hear either a boaating word out of him or a remark that might not be repeated in the presence of a lady. The reporter, looking the big man over for a minute, said, " Well, Jackson, you certainly can not have any fighting engagements on hand, judging by your shape. You look as big as a stack of corn?" Two snowy white rows of ivory gleamed through the colored man's lips as he replied, "No, and I cannot say that I am Borry. I am nearly 152 yearß of age, and that ie pretty old for a fighter, though not so for people in other walks of life. I have bad some hard fights in my time and I feel that I am entitled to a rest. I shall fight no body again but Jim Corbett, and he doesn't Beem very anxious for it. It ie rather late in the day for him to be drawing the color lino after having fought mo once for over three hours. Had I been in the same condition as when I met Slavin in England, that fight might not have lasted so long." "That wasa pretty sharp fight, Peter," eaid the reporter, "and you mußt have been iv superb condition to have won it as you did." "I never can remember to have felt as well as I did that night," eaid Jackson. "Slavin felt very well, too, for some of his blows were terrific. But a rushing fight, such aB he made, was just into my hand." "Will you fight anybody but Cor bett?" asked the scribe. "No, Bir, not if I have anything to cay about it, and I think I have. There is no great money in righting. Training expenses and wages of attendants eat up a bushel of money. There ie not 60 much cost in exhibiting, and a good deal more amusement. I am anxious to meet Corbett, but nobody else. It is just aB I tell you, fighting aud training make pretty hard work. I feel lam en titled to rest about this time, and I am going to have it." "They Bay you aregoiDg to be an actor, Peter, like Sullivan and Corbett," eaid the reporter. '•Urn—is tbat what they call it?" asked Jackson, as hia short upper lip broke into a smile of incredulity. "That's what I heard—that you were going to appear shortly as Othello," re plied the pencil-pusher. The roar of laughter that came forth from the big black man cannot be de scribed. He threw open his black Prince Albert coat and drew up hia tall figure in his chair as with eyes almost swim ming with tears, he eaid : "No, sir, none of your tragedy for me. Uncle Tom's CabiD, perhaps, but Othello, never. You newspaper folks are sich fellers to joke." And as the reporter left the roi m, the black Herculeß shook hiß hand kindly and added: "I'm ail broke up on Othello!" NOT EXORBITANT. No Truth In a St. Fanl Alan's Alle gations. There appeared in an evening con temporary ou Wednesday afternoon the complaint of a resident of St. Paul, who claims that he was overcharged for room and board for himself and family at one of the principal hotels in this city. As the article in question reflected upon all of the leading hotelß of Loa Angeles, a Herald reporter last evening made a tour of the principal ones to ascertain, if possible, the exact circumstances nl the case. Upon questioning Mr. M M. Potter, the obliging manager of the Westminster hotel, he at once acknowl edged the article in question referred to hie hotel, and waß anxioua to mans a statement. "It is simply this: Mr. J. 11. Saunders, who ia without doubt the originator of the publicatiou in reference to my hotel, came to my house on the 10th inst. accompanied by his wife and young daughter. I gave him the prices of the various rooms ac cording to location, and he finally se lected 12-1 on the eecoud floor, to which is attached bath, toilet, closets, etc The size of the room is 14x28 feet and facing eastward, the tunny side of the house, which are some of my choice rooms. Vly rate was $10 a day for the three, but ac Mr. Saunders agreed to remain a week I made the price $9 a day, which wbb apparently perfectly satisfactory to him at, the time. During his sojou.-n in my hotel he was furnished wiih two fires and charged $1 for eaine, the customary rate. This Mr. Saunders reluied to pay, and subsequently I deducted it from his bill rather than to have any argument with him. He had no further objection to his account, wbich he paid without hesitation. My rates are from 75 cents to $3 a day for rooms without board, and from $2.50 to $0 with board. My guests have their choice. I endeavor to treat every oue as nicely as possible, and this is the first time any complaint, has ever been made to my charges. Mr. Saunderß, in his statement, claims his room was 10x14. This ia false." Mr. Potter then invited the reporter to room 124, which wbh measured, and it showed to be 14x28 feet and wae elegaDtly furnished, con taining bath, toilet and closets, heing in one of the finest locations iv tbe hotel. It would seem Mr. Saunders had no cause to complain for what he got, for ha could hove been accommodated with much cheaper quarters. In justice to the hotels of Los Angeles it can be stated their rates are very reasonable, and it is seldom anyone evor has anything to aay of a detrimental nature as to the prices asked, AN AMATEUR DETECTIVE. HE SUCCESSFULLY KUNS DOWN A FKOsTESSIONAL CKOOK. Tbe Result or a Merchant's Masquerade. A Tramp Who Was Well Provided for Cold Weather. A well known business man in this city during the temporary lull of bus iness and partly prompted by curiosity to see what kind of a gang ia quartered near the viaduct on First Btreet, re placed hia nobby clothea with a last year's suit; and thus disguised started out to do a little detective work on private account. He was so thorougly disguised tbat a professional tramp mia took him for one of their fraternity, and when he eauntered in the free soup joint, which is run by mistaken human itarians, in the vicinity of tbe Santa Fe depot, tbe merchant detective was received in full fellowship by the noble band of loafers, begg-ira and trampa who make tbat place their headquarters, when not down town beggiug and steal ing. He wsb approached by a tough look ing fellow who gave the name of E. F. Ludwig and was shown a watch, which Ludwig said he had stolen. The mer chant detective listened to the fellow's statement, aud finally Ludwig proposed to the merchant detective to go into partnership with him. The novitiate in the detective line wbb now satisfied that he had judged ths gang rightly, and without even the formality of flashing up a star, took tho real tramp into cus tody and brought him to the central police station. When seirched, Ludwig had his en tire wardrobe with him. He wore two coats, two vests, and two tattered gar ments tbat had been shirts. A watch, worth about $25, was found upon hia person, which was taken charge of 1) Clerk Moffttt. Ludwig was locked up aa a suspicious character. FORESTERS IN MASQUE. Aniselena Circle's Very Snccessfnl En tertainment Last Evening:. The firat masquerade ball given by the Angelena circle No. 106, Companions of the Forest, was held at Armory hall last night. The affair was largely at tended, and waa successful in all respects. The costumes looked pretty, and the characters were generally well sustained. No at tempt at rough play waa made dur ing the evening, and the crowd was thoroughly orderly. One of the features of tho affair was a party of eight all clad in black and wbite dominos. They generally got together in the rquare dances, and formed a pleas ing Bet. One of the funniest and beat sustained characters was that of Topsy. Aunt Dinah, her companion, was also good During several of the intermissionß the crowd gathered in the middle of the fi ior and clapped tbeir bands, while a man in a gray suit, a darkey and a Chi naman danced. Finally Topsy joined in, and an old-time hoe-down aud cake walk was gone through with. There were plenty of clowns and jest ers who, together with the Chinamen aud darkeys, made the fun. Shortly before 11 o'clock the aecond grand march was started and at ite con clusion all unmaßked. The programme of 10 numbers waa then danced.

Joseph Craw, a boy aged 12 years, was the victim of a horrible fatal acci dent last evening about 7 o'clock at the Arcade depot grounds. In attempting to board a freight train his footing slip ped, and he fell to the ground partly beneath the engine. His right leg was broken at the thigh, and the bones of the upper leg compl <ely crushed, and a portion of the right side of the lower body wae also crushed. The left leg was broken below the knee, the oones being crushed to a mass by the wheeU. The right hand was also crushed, two fingers being cut off. The little boy was taken to the receiv ing hospital in an unconscious condi tion, doubtlesß Buffering excruciating pain from the shock of the frightful ac cident. Medical aid was summoned and his wounds attended to by several phy sicians, but the unfortunate boy died at 9:30, after lingering for about three and a half hours. The accident occurred just outside of the Arcade depot, in the grounds, and about 100 feet south of the depot. The conductor waß switching the engine on the tracks and making up a freight train. It is stated by a man who wit nessed the accident that several boys, including young Crnw, were jumping on and off the cars, and as the unfortunate boy attempted to jump on he missed hie footing, fell, and was crushed bei-eath the wheels. The little boy's mother was at once notified of the distressing accident, and, accompanied by two of her boys, visited the receiving hospital. She was over whelmed with grief on seeing the man gled body of her little boy as it lay upon the cot unconscious. With a lady friend she remained watching over the little fellow until the last moment. The family, consisting of Mr. Joseph Craw, Mrs. Craw and five children, live at 714 East Third street.

He is young man aged about 25 years, living on Ann street, and haß been employed by the railroad com pany for the past six years. JIM WAS VERY FICKLE. Married Ono Night anil Divorced ln the Morning. Indiana have their social troubleß, Bays the Yuma Times, as well as white people, and feel aB keenly the ostracism resulting from being fired bodily from the red "-100" just aa much aa folka of finer hair. A little incident illustrating Indian social usage, which threatened at the time to become gory, occurred among the gang of aborigines camped on the Gila river about a mile above town. Old San Diego, the weather sharp whoae prophecy of high water waa mentioned two weeks ago, has a buxom young daughter who is dead stuck on getting married to something, a charac teristic that has pervaded white society to some extent, one or two instances be ing on record to that effect. The girl's choice fell on a young buck named Jim, who wore owla' feathers in his hair and had latitude and longitude lines drawn ou his mug with red ochre. On the payment of $5, whicb, among Indiana, ia paid tho thrifty father-in-law instead of to the probate judge or to the equally rapacious justice of tiio peace as prevails in our wasteful system, Jim took hia bride home where half of the Yuma trib» gathored to partake of the wedding feaat, which conaieted of a lean cow rescued by the Indians Irom a bog in the river after she had been dead 11 dava; that beine the only time Indians are willing to risk their lives and limba in dragging cattle out of the mud. Among the gormandizers at the mar riage feast waa a sweet little red dump ling whom Jim had never seen before but who distanced hia bride ao far in comeliness and artiatic designs in Ver million on bet face that the young fel low was struck all of a heap, and when Mra. Jim would aek him to pass the preserves or to slice some more of the b~ned turkey, he would make the aw fullest breaks on record and actually poured a gallon of hot. tea down hia bride's neck under the impression that he was filling his tuest's cups. Before morning Jim had determined on a divorce. This in Indian life ie a simple affair and consists simply in bustling the old lady home, which Jim did, instructing her after breakfast the next morning to got out of his sight or he would kill her. The Indian "400" was not much sur prised at thia move, for Jim has a habit of changing wives about as often as he changes his shirt; but when he an nounced bis intention of immediately wedding the new mush, Indian society was shocked, and San Diego, who con sidered the family escutcheon sullied, delivered himself of a frightful collec tion of Spanish expletives and went gunning for the matrimonial deserter. Our informant states that San Diego loaded up the gun with as much powder as he could afford and as much old iron as be could find, and that the charge really stuck out of the barrel more than three inches. Tbe fugitive from parental wrath took to tbe hrueh until the old man had cooled off and friends made him promiee not to perforate the hide of the bride groom at his next wedding. THAT FOOT RACE. Howard Does Not Think Much of Nsra- mure'a Ability to Run. The item in the Hebald a few days ago in relation to the proposed Howard- Naramore foot race seems to have stirred up some feeling. Naramore made a statement yesterday and today Howard writes aB follows: Sporting Editor Herald: In your issue thia morning I noticed a commu nication from Mr. T. 0. Naramore, jr., in relation to a proposed foot race be tween him and myeelf. Mr. Naramore claimed that the reason the match wan not made waa because the "Howard men" would not give him time to get into shape. I regret that Mr. Naramore lias seen fit to run into coteriety about the affair. The proposition to run waa made in the form of a joke and haa since been so regarded. I will say. howeyer, that while I am not a profeasional run ner, I believe that I could give Mr. Naramore a 25-foot handicap and then beat him in a walk. C. V. Howard, Miles' Nerve and Liver FHU.
