THE CASE OF MRS. GORDON Whose Dementia Requires Care From Friends RESTRAINT IS NECESSARY And Recovery Is Probable Under Proper Treatment Pasadena* Case of Aberration Which Has Attracted Huch Attention—Notes From the Crown of the Valley PASADENA. Oct. 20.—The sad case;of Mrs. H. C. Gordon, the insane woman wbofis being cared for hy her mother, Mrs. E. P. W. Packard, has been made the subject of such a highly sensational And misleading account in a morning pa per that Tne Herald's representative has taken the trouble to ascertain the tacts of tbe case, now that the matter has been made pubtlQ. and finds that the "shock ing case ol brutality" has no ground whatever to upon. As a matter of fact. Mrs. Gordon is receiving far better care tian site would ever be likely to re ceive in any asylum, and while one can not fail to have tbo greatest compassion for her, as well as all owners who are so bereft, it is also just as clear that a per son who is so insane as to be violent at timej must be, for bis own good, more or less confined. It is true that the wo man is unarmed most of the time in a sort ct cage, so tbat she cannot do vio lence go t.'.rjyone, but her mothei says she is given frequent exercise and fre Sli air, but that she is always gla r J to get back to hur accustomed quarters. Mrs. Packard says that the cause of her daugh ter's insanity was a fall, in which she struck on her head.about three years ago. She w.u suJdenly attacked with a mild form o: dementia, though occasionally violent, and was consigned by her hus band to the Agnews asylum. Mrs, Pack ard, Mrs. Gordon's mother, was at that time in Chicago, and believing that her daughter might he benetited by an opera tion Known as trephining,she begged Mr, Gordon to bring his wife east for an op eration. A large number of physicians were con sulted, but tbey all pronounced such an operation ot no use, art for her. She grew steadily wjrse while trav el in j with her husband, when she was | Anally examined by a lunacy commission | and sent to Agnows. Mrs. I'ackard showed a certiticate from the medical di rector of tliis institution turning tne pa tient over to her for treatment. Mrs. Packard is a woman whose life has been a remarkable one in some respects, and her experience has been ono that few people c raid endure and still retain their reason; and moreover it has been such as specially qualities her for the very task Bii9 is ii iiLrtuking and which has called out such unwarranted abuse. In ber life of 7!) ye vrs she has seen more trouble and persecution than falls to tho lot ot one person out of a thousand, and all in the name of religion. Mrs. Packard is a woman of great eccentricity. Her his tory, as tobi by herself, is a romance ana her Rareef remarkable. She is the suc cessful authoi of numerous books, from which she derives her income. She is an aidant advocate of woman's suffrage, and her story, it true, is startling. She was born in l»Hi and has been from child hood a unique character, possessed of de cided views. But she unfortunately mar- : ried a man who was narrow-minded and latiatl cal. She assisted iiim in his work, but grad ually she began to have opinions and ideas of her own upon the subject ol re ligion contrary to those of her husband and his followers. She allowed these er ratic ideas to be expressed in her teach lugs of the Bible class. She could not rec oncile her ideas of a Supreme Being with the narrow faith she was called upon to subscribe to. Consequently tier bus ban l's parish ioners'counseleddiim to deal with her. With fanatical zeal this inhu man husband had his wife nut into no in sane ayslum tor no other reason than that she refused to believe in the doctrine ol "total depravity." This was in 1860, Bi cause Mrs. Packard begged for better treatment of the poor lunatics by whom she was surrounded, she was thrown in to tbe cell with the maniacs, where she was kept for months, perfectly sine and yot among these howling and raving roadmen. When she finally get out of this asylum she began the work which l:as occupied her for over twenty years. In fact she wrote one of her bioks in the asylum while surrounded hy these poor demented creatures, who used to call her ''Miss Kindness." She says sho has been instrumental in having thirty-four bills passed by the different state legis latures, giving tho insuiid a few of too rights to which they arc entitled, notable the right to received and write letters when in their lucid intervals.: Health Oiticer Rowland says Mrs. Gor dan is receiving the best of care, ami will probably recover under her mother's kind and careful treatment.

LOS ATTGEEES HERALD: "WEDNESDAY MORiNTNG-. OCTOBER 30, 1896. HOW BUTTON KILLED BOHM Bohm's Cheekbone and Eye Crushed In THE HARLEM MOTOR ROAD The Stockholders Are All Eager lo Let Go The Rock Pile Ready—An Irrigation District to Qo Out ot Business—General News Notes SAX BERNARDINO, Oct. 29.-Pr«d Heap was tbe first witness called 111 tho prosecution in tlie Button case in Judge Otis' department tnis morning. It was Heap who organized tlie hunting and rishi.ig party which terminated 10 tragic ally, and ha was Standing by when IJut ton tired the fatal shot. The balance of the jury was selected yesterday evening, anil tha full panel is an follows: A. \V. Totter, Charles K. White, George Cooley, .lames Birch, Q. A. At wood. G. A. Collins, D. A. Fenla son, Lewis I. Coy, Casper Cooper, N. Milliken, L. AnekerandM. W. Tate. As soon a, tho opening statement of the case had been made the piOiecution cnllecl Fred Heap, and he detailed all ol the circumstances of the shooting. From this statement unci what was brought out on cioss-examination, Button ana liohm hud been quarreling all the way up the canyon and several times it was difficult to prevent trouble, both being more or less under the influence ol liquor. Arriving at the camp this was intensi fied,and after a knife lißd been taken from Bedim, Button finally jumped upon him, stamping his face with his heavy boot heel, and as otner evidence will show, crushing Bohra's check bone and proba bly destroying tbe sigh*, o! one eye. Button then withdrew to whero his horse was tieu, returning a few minutes later. As to the details of what followed, Heap is unabie to give an accurate statement, further than tho fact that Button jumped behind a tree until he had hisritlo cocked, when he stepped out and lired, the shot killing Bohm. ,'ihe district attorney's opening state ment tilled up the gup in tha story. It is claimed that when Button returned, Bohm picked up a shot gun, snapping it at Button, but it was not loaded. It is said that lie then placed a shell in tlie gun and had it raised to lire, when But ton shot, the bullet going through Bohm a left arm, striking him in the left breast. Heap has been on the stand all day, anil it is doubtful whether Che cross-ex amination wilt be completed tonight. Public interest in the case holds out, and Judge Otis' court room is thronged all the time. That Button has some friends is evident, und they are stoutly maintaining their belief that he acted in self-defense. TO (JO OUT OF BUSINESS. The disorganization of the Citrns Belt irrigation district is to be effected ll a majority of the voters of the district so decide, an election tor that purpose hav ing been calleu NovemOP.r 19tb. The sen timents of tne settlers are against sus taining the orgnnizjtion, not a dollar of the bonds having been sold and Judge Boss' decision preventing any sale. The district was orngnizod in un der the Wright law. and embraced about 8000 acres, of which about 1000 ig improv ed. Bonds in the sum of $2U,000 were voted, imposing a lien of $oti an ncre on all land embraced in the district. At tempts were made at various times to float the bonds, but the deals invariably fell through. Consequently no water was de veloped. The settlers derived their supply from the I.ytle ( reek Water und improvement company under a contract with the Sem i company, which, when it sold the land, agreed to sell or rent water to pur chasers of lar.il until such time as water wus developed in the district. The Sav ings Union of San Francisco, wbioh had a blanket niortgnge on the entire tract, bos lived up to its obligation. The pre vailing sentiment in the district regard ing the Wright act is that its nullification is v good thing. The district is in debt lor running ex penses since its organization, the liabili ties including items for salaries of officers and zanjero, attorney's fees and printing. A deal has been effected with the Senii- Trjpic company by which the claims of all creditors will be satisfied. THE HARLEM MOTOR. There is tt deal on foot for the sale of the Harlem motor line, running from this city to Highland, but the Southern Pa cilic is not the prospective purchaser, as has been claimed. The Kentucky corpor ation has been doing some buying of small railroads in this vicinity, hut the Harlem line forms nw part of its plans. Tno sale which is now pending is ono which has been largely engineered by Keciover Brodrick of the First National bank. The hank has a claim against the company, and Mr Brodrick has lound a buyer lor the road, providing a price be liked which will be acceptable all around. The stockholders in the Harlem road do not want any money out of it, or at least will be glad to get out without put ting any more money into it. That Is to say, they will turn the road over to an/ company or individual who will assume its liabilities. They havo even gone farther and agreed to pay 25 per oent of this indebtedness, if Mr. Brodrick's buyer will take the road and pay the ether 75 per cent. But from what can be learned, this proposition will not be ac cepted. The contemplated sale does not have any connection with the proposed loop line, either steam or electric, at least the prospective purchasers only contemplate at present an independent line to the springs and possibly to Highlands. If the Arrowhead resort shall be rebuilt it might be a business proposition to ex tend, but all that MM absolutely no con nection with thu present deal wnich is simply an effort on the part of tha bank to get thu money due the hunk out of the property. If tho road is sold at all as a result of the present negotiations, it will baenme the property of F, Kohl of Centralia. 111., father of O. H. ami Walter Kohl of this city. Receiver Brodrick and Colonel T. J. Wilson have been endeavoring to bring the stockholders in the company anil Mr. Kohl to terms, but nothing has yet been agreed upon. THE ROCK PILE READY Judgo Knox this morning sentenced four tramps to serve ten days for evading railroad fares, and a few moments later he was grieving because he had not made it twenty days. In the meantime he had learned that the rock idle is ready, and saw at once that he had missed a golden Opportunity to give four healthy laborers twenty days' employment. Tho carpenters finished their work this forenoon, und teams are hauling rock from Colton today, so that everything vill be in readiness tomorrow morning if Sheriff Holcumb wants to put lifs freo labor bureau into operation. It is pos sible, however, that this may bs post poned until November Ist. There are now about twenty prisoners in tbe county jail who a-e eli.iblo to go to work at the resort at tbe foot of E street, ond .Judge Knox • contribution this morning swelled the number to possibly twenty-Mve. They will be In charge of one man, who will act as guard, and Jnvez Hocking will probably be the person appointed to the place. The purchase ol the hammers, chains and other necessary articles is being looked after by Supervisor Newburg, antl ai soon as this is completed the chain gang will bo marched down E street for work. he report of the county's rock pile is already spreading, and news comes in from ISarslow that there aro fifty tramps there who art afraid to come on through Inr fear they will oa picked up and com pelled to labor. Tbe contingent which came before Judge Knox this morning is the advance gnaid of the party, and their success is not reaasuiing. NOTES OF THE DAY. Mr. and Mrs. Frank I). Keller have re turned from Coronado,whither tluy went on their wedding trip. Mrs S. O. Tuthill, nee Kurtz, left this morning for Los Angeles, —here she will reside in tne future. A tire was discovered in the bath room of K. F. (Earner's residence Sunday morning, hut was quickly controlled by the tire department. Chairman; Turner of the board of super visors has been instructed to have built an addition to tbe jail at Needles, and it is to be used for ttie purpose of a morgue. There is no undertaking establishment at Needles, and recently the fact has been emphasized that there is no place whero the oead can be cared for, particularly those who must be cared for by the coun ty. The lattst case in point was when a passenger on the eastbound train died at lllake one night last week ami the body was taken tn the Needles jail, causing an exodus of prisoners before morning. Cards are out for the wedding of Mr. Charles A. Gallagher and Miss Mnrguer ite Johnson, at the First M. E. church, Wednesday evening, November 6th. \ carload of excursonists from Illinois, under charge of H. 1.. Randall of the Burlington road, arrived in this city to day.

STREET CARS AT SANTA ANA A Resolution to Abandon the Old Franchise CAPITAL IS NOW WAITING To Put in a System the City V/IU Be Proud Of The Miller Liquor Case Decided In a Way Which Does Not Please the Prohibitions s BAXTA ANA, Oot. 29.—The stockhold ers of the Santa Ana, Orange and Tustin Street Railway company held a meeting in the (Jommeicial bank parlors yoster day. They approved the uction of Presi dent liundy in tendering the surrender of the franchise of the road to the city and passed the following resolutions: Resolved, That we, the stockholders oi the Santa Ana, Orange and Tustin Kail way company believed and deem it to he necessary and advisable to surrender and abandon the franchae now held by this Company and to discontinue operations thereunder, and that all property should be disposed of and that the proceeds of suoh disposition should he applied to ward the payment of the indebtedness of the company; and therefore we, asjstock holders, hereby authorize and empower ttie hoard of directors to proceed at once in this direction to abandon and discon tinue operations as aforesaid and to sell or otherwise dispose of said properly as in their best judgment may subserve the besi interests of the company nnd the stockholders thereof. A gentleman representing outside cap ital was In the city yesterday nnd said, after looking over the city and surround ings, tbat as soon as tlie present street railway company wns out of the way he would af ply for a franchise for a street railway and would put in a system that Santa Ana would be proud of. This shows very conclusively that Santa An, can't do without a street railway and if the present company want to surrennei their franchise and are bound to Oa-f; the best tiling to do is to erxourage tiomo other capital to invest and givVus a good system. THE MILLER CASE. The case of the city against Chris Mil ler for running his saloon contrary to the Pomona liquor ordinance now in force in this city was today passed on by Su perior Judge J. W. Towner, who said that section 5 of said ordinance compelling the proprietor to remove tables, chairs, benches, screens, etc., and provide that the bar shall bo in full view of the street, is void because it is unreasonable. This knocks out the mosl objectionable part of the ordinance, and this is the point the saloon men were working for. Mil lar had been convicted on a charge of selling liquor without a license. He made a motion for v new trial, which wns heard today before Recorder Mattnews. Tho motion was denied und Miller was sentenced to pay a "no of $75 and costs, or suffer ten days' imprisonment.

SANTA BARBARA'S BONDS The City Officials Struck by a Sudden Cold Wave The Proposal Voted Down by Over Three to One — Funeral of County Clerk Bradley SANTA BARBARA, Oct. 29.—While tbo climate of Santa Barbara is undoubtedly fine, the mayor, city engineer and mem bers of the city council found the atmo sphere exceedingly chilly last evening.
