SENSATION IN COURT.
Jndge Bronsoeaa Withdraws From a
Case—Complaints Agalaat Bohlller.
The few spectators in Jndge Van
Dyke's court room were treated to a gen
uine sensation yesterday morning when
tbe case of Sterling va. F. Schiller and
L. Langlois was called, whioh has been
on trial for several days past.
The defendants were oonspicnous by
their absence, and the absence was em
phasized still more when Mr. J. Brous
seau, their attorney, arose and with
drew from the caae. He aaid tbat from
information he had just received he was
impelled to ask permission to withdraw,
and it was granted by Judge Van Dyke,
The oourt saw Mrs. B. Langlois in the
room and aaid to her that a continuance
would be granted in the case until thia
morning, and in the meantime abe
would bave a ohance to procure other
As will be remsmhsred, the point in
volved in the caae ia the validity of a
leaae for a house at 717 Temple street,
and a receipt for a year's rent at $39 per
month, which tbey claim they paid.
Mr. Sterling alleged that the defendants
paid bim only $39 and that the leaae he
gave was by the month. He intro
duced testimony to show that the lease
and receipt produced were forgeries.
The testimony was evidently so con
clusive that Schiller and Langlois de
cided to abandon the case and save
themselves from oriminal prosecution
by making towards places of safety.
The trouble developed a new phase
yesterday afternoon, and now telegraphic
warrants are chasing Fred Schiller, wbo
at latest accounts was headed for the
Mexican line via San Diego. There are
three warrants in all, two charging for
gery, and the other is in the nature of a
bench warrant, issued by Police Judge
Seaman, because the fugitive Schiller
failed to respond to a obarge of felony
committed in October 17th, when it is
alleged he poisoned seven chickens be
longing to Mr. Sterling.

ORAN MILLER'S CRIME.
On Trial for the Morder of "Fisherman
Pete" Last Jnly.
A murder case was on trial yesterday
in Judge Smith's court which presented
some puzzling conundrums to the jury.
It waa the caae of Oran Miller, aoouaed
of the murder at Portuguese band July
7th last of Peter Peterson, otherwise
known sb "Fisherman Pete."
Miller ia a young fellow about 18 years
old, and was formerly at the Whittier
state school. At the reform school he
was called "Bog-bouse Miller," a term
by wbich the boys designated a weak
After leaving tbe institution Miller
made his way to San Pedro. He stole a
rifle from the lighthouse, traded it for a
revolver, and turned up Jnly 7th at
Fisherman Pete's rude dwelling. Pete
wns mending a net. Miller asked him
for a drink of water. According to Pete's
statement before he died, be told the
youth to go inside and get a drink, and
he did so. After coming out he asked
the way to Redondo, and Pete told him,
going on with his work. In a few sec
onds he looked up and Miller was in the
aot of shooting him. Peterson died at
the county hoapital a few days after
from the wounds he received.
Miller admitted the shooting when ar
rested by Constable Winther but said
tbat when he asked for water Pet arson
told him to get out and called himja vile
name; that thereupon be shot him, as
he allowed no one to call him thatfname.
He made this statement to Mr. W nther
and also to Deputy District Attorney
These facts were all brought out at the
trial yeatotil.iy, and tbe defenae placed
themselves squarely on the insanity
plea. A number of officers of tbe Whit
tier school were put on the stand, and
all testified that Miller is of weak mind
aud wae bo regarded during the two
years he was there. They clearly es
tablished the faot of his being weak
minded, but the witnesses were divided
in opinion as to bis mora) responsibility
for his acts, aome believing that be thor
oughly knew the difference between
right and wrong and others tbat he did
The testimony on both sides was
closed and the case will be argued this

Chicago, Oot. 23.—George V. Hank

trade he has followed so long and in
which he has been so successful that his
fortune may be conservatively estimated
at $2,000,000. He has alreapy disposed

Monday night he will resign as presi

of all bis interest in the Indiana track.
He declared tonight be no longer had a

Chicago or elsewhere, and that within a
week he would be entirely out of the
saloon business as well.
"I own the Harlem track," said he,
"and want to make it the first racing
park in the world."
With the probable exception of
Miohael C. McDonald, no man has ever

The report of the "zanja committee
whioh was adopted wae aa follows:
In the matter of the petition from Ha
gan and othera objecting to zanja water
being allowed to run on the anrfaee of
Toberman street, we find tbat the street
superintendent has recently graded up
Toberman atreet and placed it in excel
lent condition. No public zanja rnns
on or along aaid street. Bat two or
three parties have taken water, using
this street as a conduit and it is a pos
itive damage to said street to allow
zanja water to run along and across it
as it haß been done. We therefore rec
ommend that the water overseer sell no
water to be run along tbe surface of the
street, but that the property owners ba
allowed to construct a pipe for eaid pur
pose along said street, the city agreeing
to pipe across all intersections.
A CONDUCTOR EGGED.
Novel Assault Made by Tbrae Girls on
Conductor Kuntz of tbe Temple-street
line was the viotim of an assault with
stale eggs by a trio of young women last
evening, and if tbe ticket puncher ad
heres to his determination expressed
shortly after the assault, the young
women will make their bow in the police
court within a day or two. Mr. Kuntz
says he ia at a loes to know why be should
have been egged by the girls.
The affair ooourred near Grand ave
nue. Kuntz, who was not on duty, was
seated on the dummy coming into the
city, and as the oar passed a vaoant lot
three women ran out and threw the hen
fruit. One of tbe eggs struck Kuntz fair
in tbe face and ruined his clothing.
Police Officer Fay, who was on the car,
jumped off and went in pursuit. He
captured one of the girls, whom he de
scribes as being very handsomely and
richly dreased and very beautiful. The
other two escaped. The girl would give
no reason for acting as she did, and the
officer let her go after obtaining her
name. He says if Kuntz secures a war
rant he can get b!1 three of tbe girls.
