Each one of tbem oonfeaaea that it waa tbe otber wbo did tbe killing. Both eonfeaa to having robbed the atore and the etories about tbe mysterious man who sprinted down the alley and was chased by this pair of disingenuous assassins goes ont of the case forever. Tba confessions of both the men cover tbe details of tbe awfnl orime and are in harmony ou all the principal points excepting tbat of wbo actually held tbe revolver which dealt death to poor Camille Elikan. There fhe atoriea di verge. They are directly oppoalte on this point. And tbat ia all tbat now re mains of the caae—to find which breaat conceals a heart with murder in it, and which conaoience carries tbe weight of ' remorse which must surely rest npon tbat of tbe man who fired that fatal abot. Yesterday at Long Beaoh the two men were examined before Justice E. Roae orans and by him bound over to await trial in the superior court. The miniature court room in what passes for a oity hall in Long Beach was packed almost to suffocation when the deputy sheriffs brought the two men in. Tbe desire of the people to get a glimpse of the men whoehot down their fellow citizen in cold blood waa so great that men and women stood up on chairs for hours and craved their necka and curved their backs to glue tbair eyea on the pair. The evidence which Sheriff Oiine haa to give waa of a startling nature. Ha was tbe first witnoss. District Attorney Dillon wasted no timo in uselesa prelim inaries, but at onoe put tbe question: "Has either of these defendants made any statement or confession to you?" "Yea." Tbere waa a breathleaa stillness in the crowded court room. Tbe diatrict attorney naked him to atate what the confession was. "Mr. Healey sent for me to come to bis cell. Mr. Kenyon, hia brother-in law, had talked with bim in tbe cell for perhaps 10 minutes previously." Attorney H. D. Woolmer of thia oity, who la defending Feeler, at this point objected to tbe testimony Sheriff Cline was about to give, bnt bis objections were overruled and tbe witneaa pro ceeded. "Healey aaid, wben I entered hia cell, that he deeired to make a statement of the details of tbe affair and I told him to go ahead. He met Feeler, he aaid, in Los Augeles. Tbey bad ahortly after taken a trip to Santa Ana, where Feeler, who is something of a musician, played ior a dance. They talked over the pro position of robbing Elikan while on this trip, bnt did not arrange the details until alter they had returned to this Oily and then gone to Long Beach." Ou tbe night of tbe robbery, according to the atatement made to Sheriff Cline by Healey, he went first to the front of the store of Elikan and knowing tbe location and condition of things, took it upon himself to open tbe store. He took the rear door off tbe hinges. In side he went through tbo drawers under the counters looking for money. He had a brace and bit and a chisel and was inside boring a hole in one of the drawers, which wae locked, wben be beard a shot fired. Feeler waa on tbe outside, and when he—liealy— itished out Feeler eaid to him, "Let's go this way; hurry up!" He did not see Elikan at all. Feeler had the satchel and they ran down the alley to American atreet, thence out to Ocean atreet and down on the beach. Then tbe satchel was ont open, tbe money taken out, and tbe eatchel thrown into tbe sea. The money wae divided, put in three different places, and then, together, the two returned to the scene of tbe murder, first stopping at the lodging houae to change clothes. Healey told Sheriff Cline where tbe money would bo found. On Saturday Mr. Cline weut to the placea designated and found tbe money. Fart of it waa ander a plank in tbe rear of Healer's father's place. The remainder bad been thrown in the aand under tbe framework of a disused tent near by. Healey told the sheriff that tbe piatol used belonged to him. Feeler threw it into the ocean after the deed. Then came aome very damaging testi mony against Feeler, which hia attorney tried hard to keep out. In Heaiey's statement to Sheriff Cline he told how Feeler bad detailed to him the circumstances of tbe shooting. Ac cording to this statement Feeler said he went up to Elikan as he appeared at the rear corner of tbe store. Elikan pnt the satohel down on the ground. Then he stooped again to get it. and the shot was fired while he was stooping. While the sheriff was making tbia statement Healey asked permission of the court to aay a word, and when granted it he said something in regard to the location of the money which could hare no bearing on the killing in any way, and whioh was calculated to convince aome one, perhaps, tbat the man is ot weak mind. The next testimony taken was tbat of Dr. James W. Wood, the physician and auigaon who was first to reach Elikan, and wbo helped perform tbe autopsy. His testimony is very material in prov ing who the shooter was. According to his testimony tbe bullet did not range downward, but passed through tha side of tha neok on a level line, thus proving tbat wben tba shot waa fired Elikan was standing np aud tbe man wbo fired it must have been about of bia height. The cause of death was hemorrhage and tba shook to the apinal cord, against which tbe bullet lodged. The greatest sensation came when W. W, Lowe, tbe witness following Dr. Wood, produced a written statement made by Feeler, and sworn to in the presence of witnesses. Thia atatement, though much like Haalay's in aome matters, ia directly oppoaed to it on the chief issue—tbe identity of the authorof tbe death wound. Tbe statement in full is as follows: confusion or fieleb. My name ia E. A. Feeler. On tbe night of tbe 22d of November, 1894, I was in Long Beach. Tez Healey was witb ma. - About 10 o'clook on tbat night Mr. Healey went cut of tbe bouse where wa were staying and stayed about 15 min utes and then returned, saying he had had trouble to open Mr. Klikan'a drawer and get tbe money, and that Klikan waa in Lowe's bouse and it was time we were going to work. Both of us then went to the rear of Mr. Elikan'a store. Mr. Healey tore off a board that wae nailed over • part of tbe door where aome glaaa had been broken ont. He then reached in and tamed tbe bolt, then taking tbe pins from tbe hinges put tbem in his pocket and pushed tbe door iv. Then stepping in himself, with Ihe tools he bad, consisting of a brace and two bits, left me in oharge of the Hnnv ...Inn If M r \ '\\iran Di.n..rorl inj ——— -, -—/ -—■ -- —■ - -rr —- — «■*•*■ made too much fnae for me to sandbag him. While he waa working inaide, and 1 was standing at the door, he beard some noiae and came out witb an arm full oi canned corn beef. We then went together to the house west of the bouse we were stopping in and hid tbe cans under tbe steps. Then we returned to Mr. Klikan'a store.- He went inside, leaving me at tbe north side of tbe house. He had been Inside about two or three minutes wben Mr. Elikan ap peared, carrying bis valise in hia rigbt hand. I spoke to Mr. Healey, aaytng, "Some one is coming." He cams to the door where I waa atanding and Mr. Eli kan atood about wbere he fell. Mr. Healey atepped out of tbe door and, putting a revolver in Mr. Elikan'a face, said: "Throw up your hands." Mr. Elikan replied: "What ia tbe matter?" Healey aaid: "Throw up your hands I" Elikan atarted to walk backwards, set ting down tba valiaa. Mr. Healey aaid: "Walk out of tbat gate." Mr. Elikan said: "I think you are tiying to fool me." Healey then said: "Walkoutof that gate or I will aboot you," aboving tbe gun rigbt into Mr. Elikan'a face. Mr. Elikan grabbed the revolver in hia left hand. At tbat instant Mr. Healey fired, raiaing hia banda aa be did ao. Mr. Elikan fell, aaying "Ob," several timea. Healey then grabbed tbe valise in hia left hand, aaying, "Come on," to me. We ran out the gate north of the door, running down tbe alley eaat. We ran down towarda American avenue, turning down towards Ocean avenue, crossing Ocean avenue and going down tbe ate pa at tbe foot of American avenue. We then ran down to tha water's .... ...

I grabbed tbe valise and carried it down to tbe beacb and threw it into tbe water. He fol lowed me. We then went down the beach eaat to the steps. Then we went in a northeasterly direction to where some of tbe money waa bid by ua in a frame building. Then we went down tbe alley until wa came to a new barn. Mr. Healey atopped and hid tbe niokela in aome atraw. Then wa went weat until we came to hie fath er's house. We went into the back yard and hid under the house and I bid the hinge pins. Then we went out to the alley and aouth to Ooean avenue to tbe bouse where we were stopping. I waa disguised. We took off our disguise and threw tbem down into a water closet. Mr. Healay wore an old suit of blue olotbee. Tbia confession of Fealer'a waa aworn to by him. It waa written by Mr. W. W. Lowe while Feeler made the atate ment orally. It ia witnessed by Meaars. J. S. Spiers, W. Blockman and W. M. Lowe, and aworn to before Justice Rose crana. The reading of tbia document in the little oourt room created aa profound a sensation as could bave been made. And one of thoae wbo waa most visibly affected by it waa Healey. Tbe oolor caSe to hia sallow face and mantled bis obeeks with orimson, all the color went from hia thin lips, while hia eyee sought tbe floor, and hia handa were claaped tightly together. Deputy Sheriff Moore testified in re gard to finding a bundle of wet under clothing in tbe room where tbe two were stopping before tbe murder and where they went to change the olothing after the hiding of the money. He also found a cartridge in the room, tbe bul let in which waa of tbe aame aize as the one wbicb killed Elikan. Mr. Bailey, wbo found the bulk of the money, testified to tbe oircumatancea of the finding of it. At the end of thia testimony Justice Rosecrana announced that he would hold the two men without bonda to await action in tbe superior court. The people ot Long Beacb are face to faoe now with a situation which ia in tensely peculiar, toeay the least. Look ing at the man whom they have known only a few days ago aa a law-abidina citizen, they are compelled by the re sults of yesterday's dramatic ecene in their midst to believe that there beats in tbe breast of this man a heart aa black as a whole life of orime might bave made it. Tbe evidence ie ell against Healey, leaving ont the sworn statement of Feeler, and the man's own words betray him. The shot was not fired while Elikan wat in aatooping position. Fur ther, it seems improbable tbat Elikan would have laid: "You are fool ing," if he had been confronted by a stranger holding a revolver to bia face, but if tbe revolver had been in the hands of some one he knew, in other words, in Healey'a bands, then tbe remark would fit the caae. Still further, the tracks found in the abed, 15 feet to the rear of tbe snot where the killing was done, fit the shoes of Feeler but not those worn by Healey, and tbe shot wae fired at close range, for the face was blackened and bnrned by tha powder. Yesterday some facti regarding Feeler's life were learned by a Herald reporter from a gentleman of this city. Feeler was born in San Diego. His par ents died while he was young, and he LOS ANGELES TTERALDt TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, 1894. was brought up in the family of a ranehar near tha southern oity. He came to Los Angeles about two montba ago and waa stopping with a man named Wm. Lynch. He has a brother, W. A. Feeler, of Whittier. He waa in tbe habit of spending most of hia time around the club room at 132 East First atreet, and waa a roper-in for tbe place. Among tbe habitues nf tbe place be went by the name of "Pinkey," on account of always wearing a pink ahirt. He had a partner named Ben Harris, and during the summer tbe two con ducted a dance house at Anaheim land* ing. Folic* Court Cases.

Tbe Democratic oan didatee for tbe various offices nnder tbe city government are working aa candi dates never worked before, tbe incentive being the faot that victory ia an assured fact, owing to the disorganized condition of the Republican party in this city. Every evening presents the spectacle of regular Republicans and independent Republicans holding rival meetings in various parte of the city, at whicb each side devotee the major portion of the time to denouncing' the otber aa "boas ridden" and "ring rated" and predict ing dire disaster to tbe taxpayers and citizens in the event of tbe election of tbe rival faction. Mr. Hazard deolarea tbat tbe water company ia behind Mr. Rader, while Mr. Rader's partisans point to Mr. Hazard as the quintessence of all that ia bad in politics. Meanwhile the Democratic oity com mittee is receiving assurances from all sides tbat the ohanoes for Democratic success were never brighter, as tbe plat form adopted by the Democrotio city convention covers the whole ground of what sbonld be in municipal govern ment, and tbe make-up of the ticket ie such tbat tbere ia no chance for attack in any single instance, a faot whicb ia dearly demonstrated by the silence of the opposition. It is generally com mented on by tbe business men c thia city that the Democratic ticket is the strongest tbat has ever been nominated in this oity and will command the sup port of the conservative element regard less of political bias. In spite of tbe attempt of tbe Republican bosses to create the impression tbat tbe working men have deserted the Democratic party and will bolt tbe city ticket on Decem ber 3d. tbe faot remains that tbe work ingmen of tbia city as a whole are working in perfect nnlson in support of Mr. Ryan and tbe whole city ticket, recognizing the fact that nnder the class legislation of the Republican ring now in control of tbe city government their only hope of aeouring their fair proportion of tha patronage lies in the sncoess oi tbe Demo cratic party at tbe coming election. The city council, now controlled by tbe Republican city ball ring, have par celled out the various commissions co that ability to pack a caucns or oarry a primary eleotion ia the only requisite required to secure employment under tbe city government in every branob, from the bigb ealaried clerk to the bumble laborer in tbe streets.

M'COMAS WANTS TO VOTE And Thinks All Femininity Should Be Given the Ballot. Single Taxers and Female Suffra gists Discuss Things. Abbot Kinney Opposee tha ■nfranehlso ineut or Women—Mrs. MoCemas' Address—Featnraa of the livening. An audience, filling all tbe seats in Unity obnroh lecture hall, was in at tendance at the aingle-tax meeting laat night, and tbe proceedings throughout were listened to with the deepest inter est by all present. Mra. Alice Moore McOomas was the principal speaker of tbe evening, her subject being Woman Suffrage, of which she is one of the fore most and ablest advocates in tbia por tion of tbe conntry. A large percentage of the audience was composed of women, most of whom were evidently favorable to the enfranchisement of tbe fair sex; but there were also numerous represen tatives ol privileged manhood present, one of whom, Mr. Abbot Kinney, was tbere to aay something in opposition to woman suffrage. Single-taxera were on hand, of course, as it was their meeting, and they were prepared to supplement tbe suffrage discussion witb a presenta tion of tbe single-tax philosophy. The exercises opened witb instru mental mnsio by 'Miss Alice B. Mo- Comas, wbo rendered a fine piano solo. President Ralph Hoyt announced that on and alter next Monday evening, De cember 3rd, the olub would bold its public meetinge in tbe Blancbard (Sc Fitzgerald hall. The programme for next Monday evening wonld comprise good muaic, an address by Lawrence Dunham of New York City, an original poem by Wm. 8. Creitfhtou, esq., of this oity, a discussion of economic questions, and otber attractions. When Mrs. MoComas was introduced she waa greeted with hearty applause from both sexes, and during her ad dress she was listened to with rapt at tention. For half an hour she held tbe close attention of all, and her concise arguments, historical facta and sharp, pointed hits at tbe more popular objections to woman suffrage fre quently oalled for loud applause. She urged that suffrage waa a natural right to woman, tbat her depri vation of the ballot was morally wrong and politically unwise; tbat wherever women had either partial or complete suffrage it bad proved a success; tbat the movement wae steadily growing and oould not be retarded much longer by unjust and foolieh opposition. Taken all in all the address of Mrs. MeOomaa was about as pungent, instructive and entertaining as is ever heard in favor of woman suffrage—especially considering the brief time occupied by the apeaker. Musio was then again indulged in—a violin and piano dnet by Profeaaor Geis man and Miss McComas, whioh was highly appreciated. Mr. Abbot Kinney was then intro duced to oppose tbe arguments made In favor of equal suffrage by Mra. Mc- Comas. Mr. Kinnav advanced noma extremely original ideaa on tba subject. He agreed with the equal suffragists that women are better and purer than men, and suggests tbat we continue tha causes which produced tbia effect. In anawer to tbe question of abstraot right to a voice in government, Mr. Kinney held tbere was no sueb thing as abstract right unless you have tbe power to back it. Mrs. McComas answered tba oppo sition speech of Mr. Kinney in a con cise five-minute epeech, in wbicb she managed to carry the audiencs with ber. Taken all in all, tbe atmoepbere in tbe room emaoked strongly of eqnal rights to a voice in the government whicb gov erns the public. Tbe single tax then came to the front and questions were asked by the inquir ing and answered by tbe informed. A high degree of interest obtained throughout the disoussion, and the op ponents of tbe economic reform were treated with respect and good feeling by tbe single taxera. Messrs. Oonkling, Wood, Miller and Hoyt. The objections involved in tbe questions were auch as are often heard, and the answers were offered in the same spirit of sincerity wbicb evidently actuated those wbo pro pounded the questions. At 10 o'clock the large audience, after being supplied with literature, dis persed in a pleasaut mood. THE DEBS INJUNCTION SUIT. Tha Final Decree Btgn»d and tha Di fondants £<>jolD«d.
