NORWALK CHINESE MUST GO.
Exciting Times at that Little • Town Last Night. George Hebe Ho Had to Discharge His Chinamen or See Them Hung-. Supervisor Hay Prevented Bloodshed By Ilia Timely Arrival—An Armed Crowd Dlip-rae Only After Attaining Their Object. Yesterday afternoon a telephone message was received at the.Bheiill's of fice from Norwalk stating that the white laborers of tbe district intended to make a midnight descent upon the Chi nese employed at George lleberle's vineyard, which ia located about a mile and a half south of Norwalk. It was further stated* that the Anti Chinese league had sent an ultimatum to Heberle, warning him that unless lie immediately discharged his Chinese help, that they would be hung by the mob before morning. Shortly after the receipt ol the tele phone communication, Supervisor Hay left for lleberle's vineyard, and on ar riving there and investigating the mat ter, sent a message to Sheriff Cline, in which he said bloodshed was imminent, and asked that as strong a force of offi cers might be sent to Norwalk in ac short a time as possible in order to as sist the four deputy sheriffs already on the scene. * Under Sheriff John Brooker waßted no time, but in'company with four dep uty sheriffs, all the available force, pro cured a team and drove to the ranch, leaving Loa Angeles at 7 o'clock last night. HKBERLE FORCED TO GIVE IM. Additional news oi tbe affair was sent tbe Herald by telephone at 11 o'clock last night* as follows: Before the arrival of the officers, riders bad been sent out over the country, no tifying all anti-Chinese crusadew of the necessity of their presence at the attack during the night. Considerable feeling had been aroused among the more responsible people, while others were agitated and were at fever heat. Unless their wishes were complied wilh they threatened to kill the Chinese before tbe dawn of day, aud from their determined appearance it looked as though trouble of a most serious nature was inevitable. The crowd gathered about 9:30 o'clock, and numbered between 40 and 60 men. A number of tbem carried shotguns or rifles, while others resorted to clubs and revolvers to use in case they should be met in large numbers by the Celestials. The crowd of Chinese destroyers were led by Elmer Dolley, a young Artesia rancher. He was the committee of one who notified Mr. Heberle during tbe day that he must discharge the Chinese or see tbem lynched. Tbe situation became alarming. Heb erle had not yet complied with the warning, and the mob grew more deter mined. Several of tbe leaguers advo cated an immediate annihilation of tho entire grape-picking crew, without giv ing Heberle further time in which to decide. . It became evident that Heberle, who ie a courageous and determined man,' was strongly opposed to the discharging of the coolies', and it was several bouts before be definitely decided as to what be would do. Being pressed by the mob for the hut' time, he was prevailed upon to dis cbarge the Chinese. He is a very brave man, but was Dowerless to pro tect the Chinese against such a gather ing. He complied with the wishes of the men very reluctantly. It is said that but for the intervention of Supervisor Hay, Atwood Stork and a few other leading citizens there would certainly hatje been bloodsbed. These gentlemen induced Heberle to discbarge the Chinese and also pacified the mob, after which the crowd dispersed without further trouble. It was a very chilly ride back to this city for the depuf? sheriffs. JUDGE SMITH ALL RIGHT. Be Hays He Will Uo lv Lob Angeles in Three Weeks. Mr. F. R. Willis, Ute attorney, re turned Monday from a trip to Chicago and eastern' points. While in Chicago he saw Judge B. N. Smith, who was severely injured by an electric car some time ago. Mr. Willis left for home last Wednes day, and saw Judge Smith about one hour before his departure. He states that Judge Smith's injuries are not bo bad as was first reported. None of hie limbs were broken, nor has he sustained any internal injuries. He had five ribs broken and received an abrasion upon tbe skull and a cut on tbe hip. Judge Smith was getting along nicely and desired to be remembered to all of the boys, and instructed Mr. Willis to tell the Los Angeles people tbat be would be borne within three weeks. Mr. Willis also saw the physician at the hospital where Judge Smith is staying, and he, too, said that the judge would be out in about three weeks. Mr. Willis gave it as bis opinion that the present stringency in financial af fairs is more the result of the uncer tainty over the probable tariff legisla tion by tne present congress tban the silver question. He talked with a num ber of manufacturers and they generally blamed the present condition upon the uncertainty of tbe tariff. Affairs were, : he said, getting easier in tbe east. He states also that the indications point to a large influx into Southern California •i settlers as well as tourists. DOING GOOD WORK. Th* Illustrated Herald and ll» F fleet aa a Missionary. A Herald representative chanced to be in the University bank yesterday, when be wae bailed by George L. Ar nold, who recently returned from an eastern trip. "I Cant to congratulate the Hkrai.d," said Mr. Arnold, "for the grand work tbat it is doing. When I was at Normal, Illinois, where the State Normal pchool is located, I We boasting of Los Angeles and the resources of the surrounding country. The people there did not seem to give much credit to what 1 said, but the second day that I whs- there along came your illustrated Columbian edition to back up every statement that 1 bad made. The result was that two of the most influential citi zens of that small village made up their minds to come to I,ob Angeles shortly with the view of making this city their home. "The work that you are doing in sending that excellent publication to public libraries, reading rooms and hotels, where it will be read, deserves the encouragement of every citizen; for it is bound to do an incalculable amount of good. lean vouch for what it has done at Normal, ant) that iB but a small village, and if it Ima done bo much good there, what will it not do else where? When that paper" reached that little town almost everybody in the place fairly scrambled and fought ior the privilege of reading it first." Mr. Arnold's experience iB but one of many of the same nature that the HtHAUD is constantly receiving news of. an injunction Denied. RESULT OF THE SAN ANTONIO CANYON WATER WAR. Judge Van Dyke Decides That the Tun nel la Not Doing aay Damage. If It Does He Will Act. j Judge Van Dyke yesterday rendered ! a decision in the case of the San Anto nio Water company and Pomona Land and Water company vs. the Sierra Water and Power company et al., in ac cordance with an opinion filed, denying the request for an injunction. Largo interests have been at Btake in tho present litigation, and the decision has been anxiously awaited by tbe parties interested and the people of Po mona, Ontario and vicinity. For more tban 10 years prior to the commencement of the action, says the court, the plaintiff corporation have diverted aud distributed for use among their respective stockholders all the water flowing down the San Antonio canon, except 20 inches thesSof, appro priated by aud belonging to a man named Dexter. At the dam in the ceflnn, near its mouth, the water belonging to the companies is equally divided. The San Antonio company takes one-half on the eastern Bide of the stream, and con ducts It southeasterly through pipes and aqueducts to Ontario colony and Ontario, distributing it. The Pomona Land and Water company takes the other half to Pomona and distributes it. -The defendant company has begun the excavation of a tunnel up tbe canon five or Gix miles fiom its mouth to develop water, tafejadjng to convey it down the cafion and apoirfond. Ths-plaifitiiTs allege that the tunnel is co-nsttuetelrso near the channel of the creek aa tt) etraw aome of its water from ' it. atui Irordroiftngs and adjacent ciene | gas, prosecution of j the t annul tsi&tmjjfeato. the amount of | The denies these allegations Rffd say that at tfcj JjjtopoEed depth and in the tinnrl is being con structed it'"will noE diminish or divert any of the w/ator in the stream. It was agreed that the court ebould v'sit the premises, and he did so. From j the showing made in court and from the i personal inspection made, Judge Van j Dyke thinks that no diminution of the waters flowing in the creek has so far occurred. He also considers that the conetrnction of tbe tunnel will not result . in a diminution of any waters to which tbe plaintiffs are entitled. He says tbat in view of the large number of people and vast interests de pendent on the distribution of water by the plaintiffs, it is not strango that ap prehension of interference with the water right should be aroused. Still, in order to justify ths court in restraining parties from seeking to develop water.it ehonld appear reasonably certain that an interference or divorsion haa taken place or is likely to occur. In the further extension of the tun nel if at any time it should be developed that danger to the flow of the stream is imminent, the court would net hesitate to restrain such diversion or fnterfer ference. But for the present the order to show cause is discharged and a pre liminary injunction is denied. STEWART WILL COME BACK. He Haa Contested to Hia Identity and Will Be Held. Chief of Police Glasß received a tele gram yesterday morning from Chief of Police Knox of El Paso,"Texae, stating that Stewart, tbe defaulting street su perintendent's deputy, bad confessed to big jdentity.

Detective Auble was accordingly de tailed to bring the young man back to Lob Angeles. He will probably return on Friday.

Brit Those Nanghty Knnnciators Must Be Removed. The Proceeding* .if the Board Yesterday, Tbe War Against the Orion -Saloon Licenses Granted and i raui ferred. , The police commission at its meeting yesterday continued its crusade against tbe "crib" element, and ordered the chief of police to immediately enforce the law against the houses of ill-fame on Ixe Angeles street between First and Aliso. Contrary to ite former custom, the commission failed to revoke tbe license of one saloon reported upon very unfa vorably by the chief, tbe place being the Backet saloon at 7i'.i North Alameda Btreet, owned by Jean Rappet. This case has been twice continued, and now tbe saloon is permitted to run. A report of the chief of police, pre sented by Officer Marsh, regarding tbe immoral houses at the places mentioned, was read. The matter was originally brought up by a petition from the busi ness men on Los Angelee street, who protested bitterly against the disreputa ble dives. The report showed there are five "cribs" in tbe low building, numbered 125, 127, 129, 131 and 133 North Los Angeles street, each room being occupied by immoral women. The property be longs to Mrs. W. Rumpp, who secures a rental of $15 a month Irom the fallen women. The report stated that, consid ering the class of people, these places were orderly, and no robberies bad been reported nb having taken place in them. The soliciting of the women is not aone in a more open manner tban by tbeir sitting at the windows in slight attire, lt is said that ladies will not pass along the atreet on account of these disrepu table women and their almost open places. The mayor asked the clerk to read the law, the section covering the question being 316 of tbe penal code, which is aa follows : "Every person who keeps any disor derly bouse or any house for the pur pose of assignation or prostitution, or any hon°e of public resort by whicb the peace, comfort or decency of the imme diate neighborhood is habitually dis turbed, or who keeps any inn in a dis orderly manner, and every person who lets any apartment or tenement, know ing tbat it is to be used for the purpose of assignation or prostitution is guilty of a misdemeanor." After some discussion on the matter, Mr. Boebyehell moved that the chief of police be instructed to take proper steps to abate the nuisance, and if the offend ing persons refuse to comply with the requirements of the law, the chief was instructed to bring criminal proceed ings. The motion was adopted. RAITKT's saloon a necessity. The matter of tbe saloon of Jean Rap pet, at 719 North Alameda street, came up. Mr. Bradish moved that the license of the saloon be revoked, but the motion was lost, the mayor, Messrs.Weldonaud Bosbyshell voting no, and Messrs. Bradiari and Tin ts voting yes. A compromise was effected by the motion of Mr, Bosbyshell, who moved that the chief of police notify Mr. Rap pet to remove all belts and enunciators out of the saloon, and to cell liquor only in the saloon. This motion was carried. Rappet has been selling liquor in 32 of the "cribs" by means of orders by enunciators, and this business will now be stopped. Then the question arises, will the women again flock to the place as of yore? SALOON LICENSES. The chief reported on the petition of George W. Scherer for transfer of license of saloon at the northwest corner of Sev enth etreet and Maple avenue from Charles Hildebrandt, which wae granted. On report of the chief transfers of licenses were granted to Charles Arthurs ' for saloon at 411 North Main street, from H. Clarey. The chief made a further report on the petition of C. H. Scbmtdt for permit of license of saloon at 701 East Eighth Btreet, and also presented a protest ol a Mr. Morgant against the issuance of a permit. Action was postponed one week and the chief instructed to make further report on the petition and protest. Tbe chief of police reported favorably on the petition of Ramon Garcia for transfer of permit for liquor license of saloon at 2134 East Firat street from Wiethen St Nicholson, and on motion of Mr. Boabyshell the permit was granted. , The following petitions were read and referred to the chief: E. S. Morton, for license transfer, of saloon at 712 East First street from Mrs. Frank Curta ; G. A. Norman, for permit of saloon license at 233 East First street. WANT TO UE POLICEMEN.

Dr. I>a\ iMitn'M Account of the Affair —lie Wait a Lawyer of Coimequeuce and a Politician —A liar Meeting. W. H. Thomas, partner in the law firm o! Brousseau & Thomas, committed suicide early yesterday morning by tak ing eleven grains of morphine. Dr. Davisson was eummoned to Gar vanza, where Mr. Thomas resided, at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. He was met by Mra. Thomas, who told him tbat ber husband was acting very strangely, and she waß afraid he was dying. Dr. Davisson examined his patient and found symptoms of morphine poi son. Everything waa done by tho phy sician to save Mr. Thomas's life, but he never rallied and died shortly aftei 6 o'clock. Some two yeara ago Mr. Thomas had a severe attack of pneumonia, which entirely destroyed hie health and consti tution, leaving his lungs in a dangerous condition. Since then the deceased had suffered considerably, and a few days ago was operated upon by Dr. Davisson, who removed a pernicious growth from iiis lungs. Yesterday Dr. Davisson happened to be in the attorney's ollie, when the former remarked that he did not think he would ever recover hie health. He appeared to be in a very despondent frame of mind, and Dr. Davisson endeav ored to cheer him up, but without suc cess. Before the doctor left Mr. Thomas asked him if be could give him some morphine to allay the pain be was suf fering from, but Dr. Davisson not con sidering the drug a proper thing for his patient to take, refused. Attorney Thomas came to this city four years ago from Lockport, Ind., and was made a partner in the law firm of Broußßean, Hatch cc Thomas. Soon afterwards Judge Hatch left the firm, leaving Judge Broseeau and Thomas tbe sole partners.

A DAUGHTER'S SAD POSITION. The Liw Cannot Recognize Ber aa a Legitimate Child. Judge W. H. Clark, in department two of tbe superior court, yesterday filed an opinion in quite a novel case, in which an alleged illegitimate child of R. Ball, deceased, endeavored to secure a part of his estate. A decree of distribution of the estate to Sarah J. Ball and Matilda C. Ball, surviving wife and mother of the de ceased,, was entered by Judge Clark De cember 21, 1892. Since tbat time the child in question, Viola Ball, made a motion to set aside the decree, to be allowed to prove her heirship and right to share in the estate. She contends that she was adopted by tbe deceased under the provision of the civil code which provides that the father of an illegitimate child, by publicly acknowledging it as his own and other wise treating it as a legitimate child, adopts it, and it is deemed for all pur poses legitimate from the time of its birth. Tho court sayß there was a sufficient showing of excusable neglect of the peti tioner to appear at the proper time, she residing in another state and not having knowledge of Mr. Ball's death; still, ad mitting all the facts eet forth in the affidavit to be true, they fail to show conduct on-the part of the deceased as would clothe the petitioner with the rights Bhe seeks. It was made to appear that Mr. Ball was the father of Viola Ball, but no one lof the elements necessary to constitute |an adoption, except the affidavit of her ! mother, Ktnma Mahafley, who deposed ; that the deceased publicly acknowl | edged the child as his own and treated ' ber as a legitimate child. This, however, related to a time be i fore the birth of the girl. It waa in Penn i sylvanai, in 1874. Thedecsased and Km jma Mahaffey became unduly intimate. |He promised her parents to marry her, j but left the state before the birth of the petitioner and came to California. | The question before the court was ; whether any conduct or acknowledg i ment of the father of an unborn, I illegitimate child could be su ! ficient to prove an adoption or or admissible for any purpose except upon the issue of paternity. After dis cussing the law at some length, it is decided that It could not, and the motion to set aside the decree is denied. STICKS BY THE DECREE. Judge Van Dyke Kefaaea to Instru Commissioner Francis Thomas. Yesterday the petition presented by Francis Thomas, commissioner to cell the cable road system, to have special instructions as to the payment of re ceiver's certificates was beard bafore Judge Van Dyke. Arguments were made on both sides and the court deter mined the matter orally. Tbe order di rected to be entered was as follows: The application of the commissioner for instructions having been continued to this day, parties being present by council and having been argued and submitted, tbe court orders that it deems it unnecessary to make any modi fication of the decree, holding that a fair and reasonable construction of the de \ cree means, appeals pending at the time of sale. The application for supersedeas on the appeal from portions ol tbe decree is denied, for the reason that if the appeal |ii properly taken it operates as a stay : and no order is necessary, and whether the appeal is properly taken or not is for the supreme court to determine.
