Another Chapter in the City
Water Works Deal
"Jayhawker" Consequently Has No
Claim for Commissions
Some More Information About a Big Trans
action That Only Materialized on
Paper-Virtually Settled
In ruling on v demurrer yesterday, in
the suit of Woodward vs. Perry, Pierce
et al,, .fudge McKinley virtually settled
the case, holding tha*. Wooodward hau no
oase. Woodward, better known as "Jay.
hawker," brought suit against Peiry,
Pierce et al. for a commission for nego
tiating the salo of the City Water com
pany's stock to Pierce and Shaffer, wbich
sale was never consummated,a suit now
being pending in the superior court to set
the whole matter aside. As tho case is
an important on-, Judge McKinley's
opinion is given in full, as follows:
In tnis action the plaintiff seeks to
establish his rights in a certain contract
for tbe purchase of stock of the Los An
geles City Water company, aim also his
interest in the stock itself by reason of
the contract. The defendants who made
the contract in Question for the sale of
the Block to the defendants Pierce and
Shaffer have tiled a supplemental an
swer and a cross-complaint, both of
which allege a breach of contract by de
fendants Pierce and Shaffer and ask to
have the same cancelled and annulled.
Plaintiff and defendants Pierce and
Shaffer have attackeu tne suppemental
answer and cross-complaint by motions to
strike out and demurrers.
Counsel cite a large number of cases
upon tbe question as to what constitute
propel matter to be set up in a cross
complaint, but such cases are only in a
small degree helpful in determining tnis
motion, since each case depends upon a
particular state of facts and none of tbem
are closely analogous to the one at bar.
In every case the court is obliged to de
termine.from the statement of the course
of action in the complaint and that in
tbe cross-complaint whether in the latter
the defendant seeks affirmative relief re
lating to or depending upon the contract
or transaction upon which the action is
brouebt or effecting tbe property to
Which it relates.
The contract upon which tbis action is
brought is not the contract between de
fendants, wbich cross-complainants seek
to iiave cancelled, but the contract be
tween plaintiff and defendanls Pierce and
Shaffer, under which he claims an inter
est in tbe lormer contract. The affirma
tive relief sought by the cross complaint
does not, therefore, relate to, or depend
upon, the contract upon which tbe action
is brought. Hut although that is the
contract upon wbich the plaintiff brings
his action, he is not contented to rest
upon the establishment of bis rights
under it against Pierce and Shaffer, but
makes the other defendants parties and
seeks a decreo against them establishing
his rights in the original contract aud in
the stock agreed tn ho sold.
The property affeotod by tbe action is
therefore not only tbe two contracts, but,
the stock itself.
If the plaintiff is successful in this ac
tion, he will secure a decreo that be bas
an interest in the contract between Pierco
and Snuffer and tbe other defendants and
in the stock covered by that contract. He
has joined the defendants other thnn
Pierce nnd Shatter because he seeks relief
against them establishing his right in tbe
contract and in the stock.
Tbe claim that all rights under tbat
contract have been forfeited affects the
property to whiclt the action relates and
is the proper subject of cross complaint.
Tbe plaintiff seeks to establish an in
terest in tha contract and stock, while
defendant's dispute that interest and
seek a decree that whatever interest he
has together with that of their co-defencl
atits, has been forfeited. The Code ex
presses it that they may seek such relief
"against a party, so ttiat they are not
limited to relief against the plaintiff
alone, but may ask it against any party
to the action.
I can see no good reason why the same
matters should not he set up by both cross
complaint and supplemental answer.
The one is for the.purpose of preventing
tbe plaintiff from procuring relief, the
other in order to obtain it.
If defendants have a good defense they
certainly ought not, for that reascn, be
precluded from claiming affirmative re
lief, if entitled to it, nor be precluded
from making tbeir defense because enti
tled to affirmative relief.
The supplemental answer is direotetl
against plaintiff, since it sets up matters
which, if established, will prevent its ob
taining a decree binding upon defendants
that he is the owner of an interest In the
atock covered by contract betwoen de
If it be true that the rights of the pur
chasers sbottitl be forfeited by reason of
a breach of contract, plaintiff cannot ob
tain a judgment against the defendants,
who have filed tho supplemental answer.
The cross compliant seeks affirmative
relief against plaintiff and defendants
Pierce and Shul'fer, as very clearly ap
pears from its allegations and prayer.
The cross complainants are,in my opin
ion, proper parties to ask for a forfeiture
of the contract.
The contract was with a part of tho
cross complainants aa trustees and the
question of their authority to make tho
contract cannot be raised now upon this
demurrer. Tne otber stockholders who
join in the cross complaint am also proper
parties because having an interest in the
stock, but are not necessary parties.
That time was of the essence of the
contract seems very clear from the terms
of the contract, not only because it ex
pressly so declares, but because the cir
cumstances ar.i such as to make it essen
tial to the interesst of all parties that
performance be made within the limited
The contract does net sbow an exe
cuted sale, but all executory contract, un
der which the title to tne stock was
placed in tbe Union Trust company to be
passed upon the performance of certain
conditions prcc«dent by Pierce and Shaf
fer as to payment.
The only matter in the contract indicat
ing that the title pasied to Pierce and
Shaffer anti that the stock was held as a
pledge,is the agreement to have the stock
transferretl to the Union Trust company
to bold as "collateral security for tue
parties of tbe first part hereof for the
faithful performance of all the condi
tions, etc.;" but the agreement,taken all
together,shows that tbe terms "collateral
security" was loosely used and tbat the
property was to be held in escrow in
stead of as security.
<> The stock was to be transferred to
Pierce and Shaffer unon tbe making of
the payments required by tbe contract,
but they do not anywhere in the agree
ment promise to make the payment or
perform any condition whatever. In the
event of their failure to perform,the $50,
--000 paid in cash was to be forfeited and
their rights under the contract termi
nated,and then, although not so expressly
stated in the contract, it would be tbe
duty of the Union Trust company to rc
transfer tbe stock to tho parties who bad
placed it in tbeir hands.
The point is made that no demand
npon the Union Trust conipeiiy is alleged
fur tbe return of tbe stock, hut that is
not a question which plaintiff or defend
ants, Pierce anl Shaffer, can raise, sines
tbeir demuner only goes to tho suffi
ciency ot tha complaint against them and
not as to its sufficiency against otber
The allegation of a tender of perform
ance and demand arc not necessary to
the statement of a cause of action for for
feiture by reason of a meach of the con
ditions of tbe contract.
The cross complaint is upon the theoiy
that Pierce and Shaffer have lost the
right to Derformnnce by their failure to
perform the co:id : tior.s upon their part.
A tender of performanco and demand
are necessary where the vender seeks to
enforce a contract, but not when forfeit
ure is Fought on account of a breach of
its terms.
The portion of paragraph X of cross
complaintjand the same numbered par
agraph of supplemental answer, covered
by motion to strike out, is :i mere con ■
elusion of law: anil paragraphs XII and
XIII of same pleadings are immaterial
and should be stricken out.
Paragraph XI contains an allegation
that plaintiff and defendants, Pierce and
Shaffer, claim an interest under the con
tract, a proper pllegation to show the ne
cessity oi their cross action againstthem.
The motion to strike cress complaint
and supplemental answer from the tiles
will be denied, and demttrrar overruled,
with ten days to answer cross com
plaint, and the motions to strike out
parts of cross complaint and supple
mental answer will be granted except as
to paragraph XI, as to which motion
will be denied. ,

El Hammond's Bondsmen Are
Liable for $17,000
A Mistake in tbe Synopsis Telegraphed
Down Sunday Morning
The First-Term Bondsmen Will Have to Pey
Nothing-Statement ol the De
faulter's Account
The opinion of the supreme court in
the case of the people against the bonds
men of El Hammond was received at tbe
office of the clem in this city yesterday
for filing. A very brief synonsis was
sent down by the Associi ted Press,which
appeared in The Herald's telegraphic col
umns Sunday morning, to the effect that
the bondsmen had been hold liable for
17861.80. This is a mistake, as by the
opinion tbe bondsmen are held liable for
the full amount of the defalcation, $12,
--963.81, with interest from November 7,
1887. and costs of suits, which will bring
the amount up to approximately $17,000.
Judgment for the amount waa given by
the lower court, which judgment and
order have been affirmed.
At the expiration of Hnmmond'e lirst
term, on January 3, 1887, Hammond was
a defaulter in the amount of $7861.88,
which moneys were collected by him as
tax collector during nis lirst term of
office upon the general tax roll;!that is,
sa ; d lum was not only paid out, but was
not in his bands as tax collector in any
form, tbe same having been appropri
ated to his own use. Hammond held
said office continuously from tbe time he
first entered upon it in January. 1885,
until about March 21, 1887, when bo ab
sconded. At the beginning of his second
term tbe delinquent tax list for the fiscal
year, 1880-7 was delivered to Hammond
for collection, anil he was then charged
with tho amount thtroon, $80,0111.54.. On
January 22, 1887, the county auditor
servod upon him the rollowing demand:
"To E. Hammond, Toxj Col.ector—you
will at once pay into the treasury $7801.•
80 in settlement of tbo gene.at taxes."
On January 24, 1887,Hammond paid over
to tho treasurer the sum of $7801.80. hut
tbe money so paid was money collected
by him upon said delinquent tax list
during his second term, that is to say,
after January 8, 1887. Tbe court found
the following to he a statement of the
condition of Hammond's account for tho
second term:
To amount of delinquent tax list.. .$30,016.64

and sold to the state. ..$2,472.70

Balanca due and unpaid $1?,903.84
The said credits do not include the
said sum of $7801.80 paid to the treasurer
on January 24, 1887, in compliance with
the demand of tho auditor. The plaintiff
bad judgment for said snm of $12,903.70
and interest thereon from November 2,
1887, at whicu date the action was com
menced, and defendants appealed from
said judgment and from an order deny
ing tbeir motion for a new trial.
The contention of the bondsmen was,
first, that as Hnmmontl did not qualify
on his second term, ho was not legally an
officer and therefore his bond was in
valid;,and, second, that even if they
were liable at all, they coulti only be
held for the amount ot the shortage,after
deducting the $7801.80 embezzled during
the first term. The court held, however,
that tbe misappropriation of the $7801.80
of money which should have been credit
ed en the first torm was exactly the same
as if the money had been stolen after he
entered ou his second term of otiic. In
regard to the contention that Hammond
not havins qualified for his second term,
tbe court holds that there had been no
cbange in the person holding the office
during the two terms, and that as Ham
mond duly made nnd executed his bond
fur his second term, ho forfeited all rights
existing under his first term.
It is probable that \ meeting of the
bondsmen will be held today with a view
of ascertaining tho amount each will
have to pay and takj such stps as may be
in their power to make ail boar their
share of the burden.
