Pasadena, Feb. 20.—A vicious cutting
affair, which came near eliding fatally. 10
far as two of the participants wore con
cerned, occurred dn East Colorado street,
near Lake avenue, Last evening about v
o'clock. The tight was the result of a
drunken row. The young fellows, live in
number, having visited Garibaldi's saloon,
located jutt out-due of the limits, were on [
their way home when the fight occurred.
W. Harrington, who lives at the corner
of Colorado street ami Hill avenue, ami
Elmer Newton, who is employed by Har
rington, were out. The other members of
the party are Ray unit Will Fit/.pntrick,
sons nf w. F. Piupatrlck, the contractor, j
ami Andrew Parks, a foreman (or Fitz
patriek. These three young men have
made themselves scarce since the cutting,
ami us yet the police have not been.able
to locate them.
It seems the crowd met at tho saloon,
ami after drinking, started fur town about
11 o'clock. On the way they got into a
quarrel which ended in alight just in front
of the East Colorado street car stables.
Newton and Harrington were pitted
against the Other three and came out in
bad shape. Knives were freely used, New
ton being stuck twenty-two times, nine
teen stabs being in tin' face and neck. One
of the cuts almost severed his nose and
another barely missed his eye. His face i
is. in fact, all'cut tn mince meat and pre- 1
tents a terrible appearance.
Harrington got off with fewer cuts, but !
One wound reached the spine and may
prove serious* The erics ul distress aroused j
people in the neighborhood, but when they
arrived no one was in sight. Later Har
rington notified Officer Orr, who, in com
pany with Alexander Stewart, made s
search. Newton was found on the back
J torch of Dr. Kugg's residence, where he i
•ad crawled. None of the other fellows j
were in sight.
The Fitzpatrick boys were cut In the j
aif ray, but how brolly is not known. War- j
rants have been issued fur the arrest of all 1
three of the men, but up to a late hour
this evening they had not been caught, l
It is thought that both Harrington and 1
Kewton will recover; hut they will carry I
the scars for life.
Rev. a. C. Rone Lectures Under the Auspices
of the A. P. A.
The Mask Torn Off Romanism was the
Subject of an address by Rev. A. 0. Bane, 1
at the M. E. Tabernacle last evening, j
under the auspices of the A. I*. .V.
Among others on the platform were 1
fltOv, Clark Crawford, Bfiv, H. K. Ward,
Rev. Dr. HanweU and officers of the as-1
The speaker was introd need by Rev.
Clark Crawford. Taking up at once his
theme, he said: "The A. P. A. is not
opposed to religions Liberty but to relig- ,
fous Intolerance, it la not organised to
bring religion Into politics, but to drag
religion out of politics, The Catholic]
Church does not believe In religious lib
erty and has always set her face against
it. We claim that this is not. a country
to be ruled by any church—Catholic,
Presbyterian or Methodist. No church
should rule here. It. was the intention of ■
the Catholic Church to gain control of
our political machinery wherever pos
sible. The Roman biararcby claims Im
munity from the civic law, as shown by
the encyclicals of Pope Plus IX. A man
who acknowledges allegiance to Rome
and the T'npe cannot be true tO the con
stitution of his country." Extracts were |
read from the Jesuits' oath.
The Catholic Church, said the speaker,
is founded on secret societies, and yet she
ip continually waging war against secret
Societies outside of her control. Mosi of
the Catholic societies are of a military
nature.-and it is stated that 700,000-Cath
ollc soldiers can be raised in this Country.
"The great danger," said Rev. Mr.
Bane, "is from the church gaining eon- ,
trolof the Government. It is estimated
that Catholics compose about 16 per I
cent of the population of the United
states, but hold *2 per cenl of the offices.
"Koine's aims are again t the public
schools and she purposes to t mil them.
The people, however, arc waking up. til
< o ogress last year new members voted
that the English language should not hi'
taught in the public schools of New Mex
ico. One hundred and sixteen of 1 hem
were left at home at the last election.''
Congress was scored for appropriating
millions ,»f dollars to Catholic schools and
Catholic Indian schools, a political turn
over was predicted in in:*;. " The A. l\ a.
has grown to membership of in
six years and has Increased 50 in I'asa

visit to the wrecked Lytle Creek bridge,
between Colton ami Ban Bernardino, and
from there drove up to San Timoteo
Creek, where the bridge on the Moreno
road was washed out some weeks since.
it is proposed to put in three sixty-foot
spans over Lvtle ('reek, and the esti
mated cost is from 93500 to $:tonO. The
kind of material has not yet been de- <
cided upon.
The proposed San Timoteo bridge will
be one Span of U9O feet. The material will
either be all steel, or part wood and part
steel. The necessity for a substantial
bridge, with solid foundations, is atopar
ent when it is remembered that the tirst
bridge built over this creek, ami which
was Washed out tWO years ago. was but
thirty feel in length. The second bridge']
was seventy feel long, and now thechan- 1
nel has widened so as to demand one 130 j
j feet. The cost will be about $2200 if nil j
steel is decided upon, otherwise from]
llfiOO to $1800.

Buta Very Valtiab 1 * Document Establishing
the Rights of Claimants Is
Irretrievably Lost
There was filed yesterday in the office
of the County Clerk the complaint in an
action involving nearly fIHO.OOn. R. C.
Ouirado, formerly a druggist in this city,
is the plaintiff, and his suit is only the
forerunner, in the event of success, to
three others by which one-half of the
late Governor John G. Downey's estate
would be diverted from his present heirs
to go to those of his first wife, Mrs. Maria
J. Ouirado, wdio was burned to death
in the Tehaehepi railroad disaster of
January 90th, LBeB,
The action is brought against J. Downey
Harvey, administrator Of the estate , and
! Eleanor Martin. Annie Donahue and
i Winefride Martin, the heirs at law of the
I late Downey. The allegations are that
i Governor Downey died intestate in March,
I 1894, leaving an estate of $1,401,428.37,
jas appears by the inventory which was
! bled in June," 1884, In 1852 Downey mar
; tied Maria J. Ouirado, who died on Jaiiu
! ary 20th, 1883, leaving, beside her hus
-1 band, four brothers named R. C. Ouirado,
I M years old. Leandm, 50; Bernardino
| 49, and Frank, now deceased. The latter
i left three children whose names are
] Vicente, of the age of 12; J. X., 10 years
| bid, and AloniO, who is now f years of
; age.
| Plaintiff Ouirado says that after the
! death of his wife, Governor Downey asked
him ami his brothers to give him a quit
claim deed to their interest in her prop
erty, so that he might handle the totality
of "the Downey estate without hindrance.
| and dispose of it to advantage.
In order to secure the consent of his
i wife's heirs. Ouirado avers that Governor
, Downey promised that if they did his
j bidding they would lose nothing by it,
I because he would remember In bis will
i and provide for his four brothers-in-law.
Relying upon this pledge, the four men
! executed to Mr. Downey a quit-Claim
: u*eed for all their interest in Mrs. Dow
ney's property. On September 17, 1888,
; the deceased, in his turn, fulfilled his
' promise by handing to K. v. Guirado the
' following document:
Los Angeles Cal.. Sept. 17, 1888.
I agree to leave in my will one-half of
my estate to the heirs of my wife, Maria
! J."Downey, now dceased, which I admit
; and acknowledge to be one-half of my
■ estate, anil' upon my death, when this
paper is shown to my executor, be is au
thorized and directed to make a deed to
i one-half of my estate to my wife's said
■ heirs. The deeds heretofore made by
said heirs, or any of them, are to be of
no validity against them after my death.
John G. Downey.

, C. Guirado.
This document remained in the cus
tody of Mr. Guirado until the Ist of Jan
uay, Isici, when, by some unexplained
meatu it*vrai Host or destroyed.
Ouirado now claims that his right to a
, part of the Downey estate remains un
! affected by the loss of this paper, and
that its conditions are still in full force,
because the deceased made no will in his
■ lifetime, died intestate and left his
pledges unfulfilled. He states that he
and the other heirs of his sister have
made a demand of the administrator and
the heirs of the Downey estate, for one
half of its amount and that it was refused
Personally, he alleges, he is entitled to
one-fourth of the property left by Gov
ernur Downey, and he prays, the Superior
, Court of this*county that the due execU
-1 tion of the contract he established by
1 judgment, and that J. Downey Harvey
ami the ottier heirs be directed to deliver
to him a deed for his share, or failing
this, the sum of $175,178.29. R. A. Ling,

But what rubbish is all this talk of
i "best possible husbands." A girl lakes
■ the man who offers, if lie appears to lie
upright, honorable and In*earnest. If she
does not. she runs a risk of going
m seed, with :i rod nose, a canary
bird and a lap dog. The Chief trouble
with her is not to know whether she has
got the best article in the market, but
whether the man who says that he loves
her means what he says. tt is easy for ;i
man to acquire the art of lovemak
ing, and. with a little practice,
some men can do it quite skill
fully. fcToW to know when they are
obeying an Irresistiole and ungovernable
impnlr-e is the thing a girl wants tn be
able to determine. Better learn than
make herself s connoisseur In men. a
woman's happiness is to a large degree
dependent on the quality of him to whom
she has given herself, body, soul and
heart, hut, if he really love** her, she can
mold him liim to her will. Then eon
sidering that ail women believe they
know how to "manage" a husband—she
tan make a "good husband out of him,
for lie will be like clay in the hands Of
the potter.
