Yesterday the devotees of tennis had
their fill of the game for there has never
been an equal exhibition of the sport in
Southern California as that enjoyed by
the assemblage which packed the grand
etand to suffocation and tbe space be
tween tbe courts and tbe stand.
Tbe great drawing card was tbe exhi
bition game between J. L. Daily, the
San Francisco expert and exponent of
the game and Carter. It was to be
played under championship rales, tbe
best three out of five, and altbongb Car
ter did not take kindly to being made
the attraction for the Roman pageant in
the grand stand, he kindly took his posi
tion and played. He played as he never
had before, every stroke was a good one,
his judgment never faltered, still he
seldom gbt a ball where the alert pro
fessional could not pick it np and re
turn it with added force.

present tournament.
Daily plays a perfect game, which
seems to be effortless and bis drives are
the pink of perfection, there is not a
feature of the game but what he plays to
the queen's taste. Lithe, agile, with
endurance of a trained athlete, it is
worth a journey many times the dis
tance between Los Angeles and tbe sea.

MISS HOFFMAN'S STORY.
i
AT FRIENDS-' BVOGKSTIOH SHE
FILES A BWOK.V STATEMENT.
An Authoritative Denial or All tha Al
legations Hade In Decteotlva Law
son's Report, Supported by
On* from Sir. Tront.
i- * V ,
Miss E. L. Hoffman, who was men
tioned in Detective Lawson's report on
the Bentley case, yesterday at the sug
gestion of friends called on District At
torney Dillon and prepared for him an
affidavit which was filed with bim. In
brief the document reads as follows:
She relates in this the way the be
came acquainted with Bentley by an
swering an advertisement whioh he in
serted asking for a correspondent. They
corresponded and finally met in San
Francisco. She had known a Mrs.
Reynolds In San Francisco, and when
she came to Los Angeles Mrs.
Reynolds secured a room for her. After
arriving bere she discovered wbo Bent
ley really was from Mrs. Reynolds, and
that he was married. As soon as she
found he was a married man she
told bim their acquaintance must cease.
Mrs. Reynolds suggested, she says, tbat
she bad better continue her acquaint
ance with Bsntley, that it might be
profitable. She would not consider any
such tbing, and went to the Figueroa
hotel. Mr. Lemmert, the landlord,'she
says, spoke of the Bentley affair, when
her name was first mentioned in con
nection with it. and she told tbem how
she had made his acquaintance. Mr.
Lemmert , she asserted, that evening in
troduced jjbdge Guthrie to her, who ex
amined* am letters, from Bentley and
he told Uatuert' tbt bad > case
a.a net '/Fatillty arra could get money
from hm» tnu, she' said she did not
want to rate money that way all she
wanted was -to.--bi} let alone.- -After
looking at the letters be advised -her to
leave town if she did not wish to become
a witness in the cate; That they were
looking for her as a witness in tbe case.
She left that evening and went to Santa
Monica, and tbe next day, much to her
surprise, ber trunks and 'property that
she had left at tbe Figueroa hotel were
sent to her, though the understanding
when she left was that her belongings
were to remain until she returned.'
She then became suspicions of the
motives of Guthrie and Lemmert in ad
vising her as they had, and returned to
Los Angeles the next morning.
She went to Anaheim next day to sew
for a Mrs. Langenberger, but first went
to tbe postoffice in this city and left di
rections about forwarding her mail. She
had no thought of hiding or keeping out
of tbe way of tbe officers, and took no
pains to conceal her whereabouts, and
told several acquaintances in Los An
geles here she was going. Bha has net
been at any time in Alhambra. Tbe
articles which have been printed about
ber are untrue. She never told Lawson
or any one else tbat she bought poison
for Bentley,and never did buy any poi
son for him, and never gave him any.
The affidavit is sworn to before the
deputy district attorney, M. W. Conk
ling.
Accompanying this document was
also filed an affidavit from Mr. J. H.
Tront, which states that Miss Hoffman
never purchased any poison from him or
at his store, and that he never made any
inch statement to Lawson or anyone
A guest of the Hotel Figueroa daring
Miss Hoffman's stay there writes to the
Herald sneaking most highly of the
lady and ber character, and stating that
she is surely tbe victim of misrepresent
ations, a theory which she seems to have
very fully established.

BLANCHE NOT IN A TANTRUM.
She Talks About Pacific Coast
Art Appreciation.
Though San Franciscans Did Not Like
Her Los Angelenos Do.
BIIi« Wilth Says She Wai Misrepresented
by Reporters in tha Bay Olty, and
Hires Soma More Talk
About Her Views.
Miss Blanche Walsh, the talented
leading lady oi the Frohman company,
now presenting Bronson Howard's play,
Aristooraey, abont the merits of which
there la snoh a vide diversity oi opin
ion, is, according to the San Francisco
papers, a very difficult and dangerous
yonng lady to interview.
The Examiner reporter, whose shining
success in detailing an interview of what
did not occur, under the start
ling head oi "Blanche in ■ Tan
tram," evidently went prepared for
a most difficult task that he did not ex
actly consider himself oapable of doing
justice to, and as a result a few of her
vivid imaginings appeared in that now
celebrated interview.
Ta a Herald reporter., who presented
himself at the Westminster last night
after the performance, with a request for
a short interview;, no such danger was
in sight daring the pleasant time that
followed his entry into Miss Walsh's
parlor.
With pleasing readiness and charm
ing grace she expressed her willingness
to answer all questions that would in
any way be of public interest.
In reply to c question as to the origin
of the statement that appeared in some
of the San Francisco papers, to the effect
that the people there were in no way
educated up to the dramatic standard
that she waa accustomed ta find in tbe
east, and. that San Francisco was "a jay
town, anyway," Miss Walsh very earn
estly said:
"The article first appeared In tbe
Examiner, there being no foundation
whatever for Such a ridiculous charge-.
"How would I, a young actress, claim
to set myself op as a judge and declare
that the people had not the proper un
derstanding of what was good \n the
dramatic line, when Sarah Bernhardt,
tbe greatest aotress of our time, Petti,
surely the most marvelous and skillful
songstress that aver lived, and others
who stood highest in their art, had ap
peared there and had been enthusiastic
ally received and appreciated? And as
for using and applying the term "jay
town" to San Francisco, it is a phrase
that lam not in the habit oi using nor
have I ever thought of ruing it in refer
ence to any place.
"The reporter of the Examiner came
to me, waa received by me, and kindly
and courteously answered when he pat
to me a multitude of tiresome and need
leas questions concerning my reception
in qtber cities, the opinion of the critics
and the cost and material of, my dresses.
"I am at times slightly nervous, and,
as I am new tearing up your card in lit
tle bits, so, perhaps, aid I tear up the
card of the Examiner man, and that was
the foundation for his story that I was
in a tantrum and tore np his card and
with a violent gesture threw it down.
Before going he asked me for my pict
ure, as he wished to pnblish it next
morning in a review of the play and my
dresses. Instead of applying the picture
to any such purpose he used it in tbat
cruel attack on me, which I consider a
most reprehensible departure from pro
fessional courtesy.
"While I recognize at all times that it
is tha right of the critics to state their
opinions of a play and those who inter
pret it, and if they do not approve con
demn, it seems to me that they are go
ing out of their province when they at
tack a young girl without cause.
"In Ban Francisco the people showed
that they did net like Aristocracy, nor
me in my conception and impersonation
of Diana Stockton. Of course much as
I would have liked it to have been
othetwise, I feel that they have a right
to their opinion.
"Two years ago, when I appeared
with Marie Wainwright, my efforts were
enthusiastically received. So far, San
FrarJeisoo has been the only city that
has failed to appreciate our play, and I
was greatly gratified and moved at the
large and appreciative audience gath
ered at your beautiful play house this
evening to witness our performance.
"I like Los Angeles and her people; I
have always been kindly and consider
ately received here, and I hope with all
my heart tbat your people will like me
and always entertain that pleasant feel
ing toward me that I do toward them.
"1 cannot imagine how anyone living
in this beautiful city, with its lovely
climate, attractive drives, people highly
educated to ail tbat is good and elevat
ing and with its wealth of beautiful
flowers at all seasons of the year, can
help liking everything and everybody.
I may perhaps be pardoned when I say
that I want everybody to like ma, par.
ticularly everyone in this beautiful
City," and the retreating scribe van
ished, bearing in mmd what a charming
picture this very earnest yonng woman
made as she expressed this very femi
nine wish. He thought tbat could the
Eeople of this city see ber as he just
ad, her conquest wonld be complete at
once.

San Gabriel csfion is proving to be
more than a delightful summer retort
for those who seek rest and health.
Gold is being found at the bead of
tbe csfion in paying quantities, and if
future finds prove as profitable as pres
ent ones, Mountain Charley, the pros
pector, will be referred to in a very
short time as Millionaire Charley.
This individual has made the cnfion
his home for 14 years, and his occupa
tion has been probing mother earth for
some of her r:ebes. And at last he has
been successful, having located a pros
pect that is showing large quantities of
color.
The mine is located In the Narrows,
about 12 miles above the store and camp
oi Follows Bros., and yields principally
free gold, several specimens being se
cured which were lumps of free gold,
the largest of which weighed $3(3,
Several persons have made tiatterine
offers to Mountain Charlie, but tbe aged
mountaineer and prospector prefers to
profit himself for his long years of con
stant and patient research.
The caiion will no doubt be visited by
many people who are interested in
mining propertied, and it will, beyond
question, prove to be another rich camp
at an early day.
Tbe specimens were brought into the
city by A. M. Parker, a resident of tbe
Ckfion, wbo was very earnest in his de
scription of Mountain Charlie's find.
THE COURTS.
Cum on Trial Yesterday—New Suits
Filed.
Contrary to general expectations the
Billy Young murder trial was not con
cluded yesterday.
At the morning session of court tbe
testimony was finally closed, tbe de
fendant being recalled and testifying in
his own behalf. He denied having been
at Irene O'Brien's crib at tbe time she
was burned, and "stated in detail what
he claimed were his movements that
night. He denied tbat be ever threw
any lamp at the girl, and followed along
the line of the alibi outlined by the wit
nesses for the defense.
The opening argument for tbe prosecu
tion was made by Deputy District At
torney A. W. Ryan, and he reviewed
the testimony for over two hours, mak
ing a strong presentation of the case.
He was followed by Zu. Peck, for the
defense, who occupied the balance of tbe
afternoon. There was a large crowd of
spectators in tbe court room all day.
Tbe conclading arguments will be made
this morning.
It is the general idea tbat the prosecu
tion has made a much stronger ease
than on either of the preceding trials of
the defendant, bat whether tbe jurors
will convict or not is ah unknown
quantity.
Judge Smith granted a decree by de
fault yesterday to Mrs. Mary A. Robin
son from Millard F. Robinson upon the
ground of desertion.
G. M. Worden, wbo was held to an
swer to the superior court on a charge of

errors made by the justice. .

A petition from property owners was
filed with the city clerk yesterday for
presentation to the council, protecting
against the removal of the electric lights
from the mast corner of Figueroa and

ights be allowed to remain.
They claim that tbe lights on low
maeto, as proposed by tbe council, will
not sufficiently light that portion', of the
city owing to tbe thick shade trees.
The petition adds tbat the long distance
from police headquarters and lack of
proper police protection at this point
make it necessary for a large and pow
erful light at the corner of the streets in
that vicinity.

by it. '
