A CURIOUS FAMILY TANGLE
Julius Brousseau Claims to Have
Been Defrauded
OF HIS HOUSE AND LOT
Arrested as a Drunk and Now Looks
Like a Forger
Billatt Found rjuilty In the United States
District Court—A Friendly Railway
Suit to Settle Right ol Way
A ease presenting several sad features
•ltd whicli appears to prove the truth of
the scriptural adage that "a house divided
against itself cannot stand." occupied the
attention of Judge Pierce, in department
three of the superior court, yesterday.
The aged and feeble father of Judge i
Brousseau appeared in an action to compel I
bis daughter, Mrs. Liziie Sage, to reconvcy j
totiira his home at 1337 Star street, in this j
city, which property was obtained un
der rather curious circumstances.
The old man is bent with years, he giving
his age when on the witness stand as 83.
In November of last year he lost his wife,
and the fact of his life-partner being taken
from him after sixty-three years of wedded
happiness appeared to break him entirely
down. He claims that his daughter Lizzie
about this time besought him to make his
will, and when he consented brought to tho
house Judge D. P. Hatch. She read the
document to him, and he being physically
weak and in consideration of her promise
to nurse, care for, support and maintain
him for the short remainder of His life,
signed the document, which be understood
was his will. W. C. Petchner was present
and acted as notary, and the act was com
pleted.
At a latter date Mr. Brousseau discov
ered that the document he had signed was
a deed of transfer conveying the house and
lot on Star street to his daughter. The
considerate kindness of Mrs Sage
changed and she became cross and abu
sive, she permitting lierson,ayoung fellow
of 20 years, also to act disrespectfully to
his grandfather. The old gentleman's
feelings were fur'her outraged by his
daughter allowing a horse which sho owned
in her own right to trample tho flowers in
the garden whicli his deceased wife had
taken pleasure in tending.
The household expenses had so increased
since his wife's death that, previous to the
alleged fraudulent transfer of the property
he had been compelled to place a mortgage
of $500 upon it in order to pay the current
household expenses. Being tired of the
constant friction and chafing tinder the
trick played upon him. Mr. Brousseau
asked his daughter and son to leave him in
peace. They refused, however, to go,
claiming that they had a right to remain
where they were. Then the old man, in
January last, had a deed prepared n .-on
keying the property back to himself, but
Mrs. Sage had a very decided objection to
signing any such document, but did fur
ther seek to control her father by taking
possession of the deed of title to the burial
lot in Evergreen cemetery.
In order to settle the matter decisively
and get rid of the human incubus that op
pressed him, Mr. Brousseau instituted the
present suit in order to compel Mrs. Sage
to execute such deed of conveyance as to
vest in him the title to it.
After the examination of the plaintiff
Judge Hatch was put on the stand by the
defense inasmuch as be had urgent busi
ness to attend to elsewhere. The evidence
of this witness was in direct conflict with
that of Mr. Brousseau, as given on the
stand and also as set out in bis complaint.
Briefly it was to the effect that lie was
called by Mrs. Sage to see Mr. Brousseau
about making In- will. He conferred with
the latter when neither his daughter or
anyone else was present. Tlte old «aan
was anxious about tbe expenses attending
the probating of his will antl when told
that altogether such expenses would aggre
gate about $200 he was much disturbed.
The witness asked him if he had irrevocab
ly determined to leave everything he pos
sessed to Mrs. Sage, and upon being an
swered in the affirmative, advised that in
preference of makins a will ho convey the
property to his daughter. Mr. Brousseau
was satisfied with this and at the same
time requested witness to draw a deed of
mortgage, as Mr. Francisco, a storekeeper
in the vicinity, was ready to advance ifsoo
upon it. When the papers were prepared
Mr. Francisco refused to advance the
money without stating any reason, al
though witness inferred from what he said
at the time that he was afraid the old man
was about to die. The money, however,
was ultimately obtained elsewhere and ihe
deed of conveyance to Mrs. Sage duly
signed.
In answer to tho speeili" interrogatory of
the court, the witness said that at the time
he noticed nothing to warrant the idea that
Mr. Brousseau was not in a sound mental
condition.
A. M. Francisco, who keeps a store close
to the Brousseau place, was the next wit
ness, and in certain very essential particu
tars contradicted the testimony of Judge
Hatch. He testified that the condition of
Mr. Brousseau immediately after his wife's
death was such a3 to incapacitate him from
doing anything or taking interest in any
thing. He was more or less continuously
weeping. The reason that Mr. Lattin, tho
gentleman whom he bad procured to ad
vance the mortgage, refused to advance
the money on the property was because lie
discovered that the insurance papers were
made out in the name of Mrs. Sage, and
•he told them that the other papers would
be made out in her name also. They wero
willing to lend the money to Mr. Brous
seau, but not necessarily to his daughter
under the then exisisiing circumstances*
Kegaiding the household expenses of
the Brotisseans, the witness stated that
they increased very materially after Mrs.
Sage arrived. While not positive, lie be
lieved that all the ordinary necessaries of
life were purchased from him, antl when
the young man Sage came over to the store
to order things tie always had them charged
up to the account of his grandfather.
Under cross-examination witness con
ceded that the negotiations for the loan of
money were uegun with him by Mr. Brous
seau previous to his wife's death. The
old man had repeatedly, too, spoken about
making his will and dividing his property
among his children, but never could de
termine what to do.
Judge Brousseau, upon taking his seat
upon tbe witness stand, gave his aga as !i I
years, provoking the court to remark that
he was ten years older than he, the court,
had thought. Truth to tell, the witness
presented a marvelous appearance, con
sidering his age, and did not look one day
over 50 years.
This witness testified that his father had
been a millwright for fifty years and had
built the house upon Star street about fivo
years ago. His father had consulted with
him on all business affairs' exclusively un
til last June and not after that time until a
few days before the commencement of the
present action. Just before his mother's
death his father appeared to become child
ish, and not in any way himself, and after
she passed away he didn't upiiear to bo ra
tional.
It will be noted from a perusal of the
above sy'iopsis of the testimony given that
•liner one side or the other is making an
attempt to carry tbe case by some very di
rect and straightforward swoaring. The
further bearing of tbe case will be resumed
this morning when the defense will have
further opportunity to deny the old man's
allegations.
BORN WITHOUT LUCK
A Defendant Arrested as ■ Drunk Later
Looks Like a Forger
Some men are born under an unlucky
star, and R. W. Billett must consider him
self as such an individual. Going on what
to him appeared to be rather an innocent
spree when the year of 1895 was fading
away,he was arrested as a common drunk,
but quickly found such minor offense
changed as he found himself in the ruth
less grasp of tbe federal authorities. The
entire story was told yesterday in the
United States district court before Judge
Wellborn.
It developed during the hearing of testi
mony that on December 14th Billett was
arrested for drunkenness, and while being
searched at the police station a plaster of
paris mould, such as is used by the govern
ment in casting half dollars, was found
upon his person. He explained that the
die had been given him by a fellow with
whom he had been drinking. An investi
gation was begun, and in Billett's rooms
on Spring street, between Fifth and Sixth
streets, were found the materials for carry
ing on a counterfeiting business. There
was a quantity of plaster of paris, a big
spoon of certain particular make and an
assortment of acids. Thereupon the
United States authorities preferred the
charge against Billett of having feloniously
in his possession certain dies and other
materials.
Police Officer Barker testified to arrest
ing the defendant and finding upon his
person tbe die in question. Mrs. M. Rich
ards testified to his hiring and occupying a
room in her house, and Detectives Auble
and Goodman gave evidence bearing upon
the discovery of the illegitimate materials
in Billett's rooms. Deputy United States
Marshal Oaks also added to the weight of
evidence by telling how the defendant con
fided to him that he was a budding genius,
inasmuch as be had devised a machine for
coining money.
No testimony wns put forward by the de
fense, and the jury retired to consider the
verdict about 3 ocloek. After an absence
of an hour and a half a return into court
was made, when the verdict of "guilty as
charged Was returned.
The defendant then proceeded to make a
statement to tbe court, in which he said
that the die found upon him was given to
him and retained by him as a curio. Being
a plasterer by trade, that in itself was suf
ficient excuse for having piaster of paris in
his room. He did not seek to explain away
the presence of the acids.
Billett waived time for sentence, but the
court appointed Monday next at 10:30 as
the time for dealing out a chunk of justice
to the unfortunate defendant.
"TO BE OR NOT TO BE"
The vase ol Edward Reed, a Sewing tachine
Agent, Heard
Arguments in the case of Edward Reed,
an agent f\r the Singer Sewing Machine
company, occupied the attention of Judge
Smith in department one the greater
part of yesterday.
The habeas corpus route was chosen in
order that the matter might be definitely
settled whether the agent of a mercantile
concern outside the state could be com
pelled to take out a license by the state or
county authorities. Attorney H. O. King
argued the matter for two hours without
having exhausted one case which lie cited
to sustain the position he took, that the
charge made for a license to sell goods
manufactured outside the state is unconsti
tutional. He returned to the charge upon
court reconvening after luncheon, and
cited other cases iv support of his conten
tion.
Assistant District Attorney Willis did
not consume the time of the court longer
than sufficed to draw attention to the fact
that, in all the instances cited by opposing
counsel, some of which had been passed
tiuoti by the supreme court, where license
charges had been pronounced unconstitu
tional, a discriminatory clause in favor of
the particular state where the ordinance
was drawn was the reason why the supreme
courts of such states bad pronounced
against such ordtnances. In this state,
however, the ordnance bearing upon the
matter does not discriminate against the
products of other states or in favor of the
products of California. The license is a
tax placed upon the calling and not upon
tho goods.
The case will be submitted on briefs.
A TOO VAULTING AMBITION
I Cienfuegos Sets Oat to Peddle Wood snd Ends
With Embezzlement
< 'asimiro Cienfuegos is the name of a too
ambitious young fellow who wanted to get
rich with the smallest possible expendi
ture of vitality on bio part. He agreed
I with a countryman of his named Ynacio
! Ocana, living outside the city limits, that if
the latter would load his wagon with wood
1 be would guarantee to sell it to advantage
lin the city. Ocana had a good wagon, a
I good team of horses and plenty of wood to
I hand so loaded up the wagon and trusted
: the outfit to his friend Cienfuegos.~Tne
latter proved ever so much better than his
word, for he not only sold the wood in Los
Angeles hut sold also the wagon, and if the
horses did not disappear it was only be
cause a purchaser was not forthcoming.
When Ocana failed to get any returns
! from his mercantile venture, or to hear
| anything about it, he set about making in
quiries. He recovered his team, but found
tnat the wagon and the load of wood had
vanished from view altogether. He then
sought solace for hia wrongs in the office of
the district attorney, and having poured
out the story of his woe, was somewiiat re
; lieved when a complaint was issued at his
j request and a warrant issued for the arrest
lof Cienfuegos on the charge of embezzle
| meut.
TO EVADE PAYMENT
The su?reme Court Decides the Cave of a
Note for $8.15
The supreme court has affirmed the judg
ment of tho lower court in the case of Geo.
H. Deacon vs. H. A. Blodgett, wherein the
plaintiff sought to recover on a note for
| $83S, with accruing interest, on an agreo
| ment, by the terms of which the defendant
! promised to pay the face value of the note
j in the event of Deacon disposing of certain
1 lands entrusted to him for that purpose by
j Blodgett. In any event the note was to be
taken up at the expiration of one year and
sooner if the land deal was consummated.
As a matter of fact the land was not sold
and Blodgett refused payment of the note.
The lower court decided in favor of the
] plaintiff on the ground that the possible
I sale of the land was only one part of the
j agreement, and that Blodgett was to pay
j the sum at the expiration of one year in
any event. This view has also been taken
by the supreme court and the judgment
j has been sustained.
A CURIOUS CASE
A Change Prom Selling Cigarj to Burglariz
ing a Grocery Store
The very gentlemanly and well dressed
defendant known as H. Ingalls, who was
charged with having burglarised River's
grocery store, next to the Clifton House, on
Temple street, was held to answer the
charge yesterday by Judge Young. Bail
was llxed at $1000, and Judge Gottschalk
and Joe Meyers qualified as sureties in tho
necessary amount.
There am some curious circumstances
in connection with the Ingalls case that
will not be thoroughly cleared up until the
case comes up for trial. It is claimed that
the defendant was in the cigar trade in
San Francisco, and only recently came to
Los Angeles. Not being known here he
has not been able to bring any witnesses to
speak in his behalf, and so far the prosecu
tion has had everything its own way.
jLOS ATTGELES HERALD: PRIDAY MOR-NTNG. MARCH 6, 1896.
While circumstances are against Ingalls,
there are some disci epancies in the state
ments of witnesses for the prosecution
which will have to be explained at a later
date.

The Pasadena and Pacific Railway com
pany are seeking to obtain a right of way
through a tract of land adjacent to Pasa
dena, consisting of about 2000 acres and

at Lugo ranch, and was assessed $25 for
the offense. The fine was paid.

in department four. Judge Van Dyke being
still confined to the house by a very severe
cold.
FOUND NOT OUILTV
Hutcbins and Moorehead Acquitted of the
Charge of Battery
Bob Moorehead and D. S. Hutcbins were
yesterday discharged by Justice Rossiter
from the charge of battery preferred
against them by the Birubaura family.
Mrs. Birnbaum, the mother, and pro
prietress of the store in which the famous
light of Sunday last took place, was re
ported as sick abed and unable to be in
court. Judge Rossiter would not allow of
any postponement of the matter on that
score, however, as the remaining four
members of the family were on hand
to testify. The ease had been
carried over from the night previous, and
was takeu up at 0 ocloek and lasted until
nearly 1 in the afternoon. All hands told
their version of tbe trouble and of just how
the clubs, hammers, guns, screwdrivers
and other implements of warfare were
used with diligence and discrimination
upon each other.
At the close of the testimony Justice
Rossiter promptly found tbe defendants
not guilty and discharged them from cus
tody. This, it is probable, will close the
matter, although the attorneys for the
Brinbaums have stated that they would
appeal.
A Disappointment
The eminent pianist, Carlyle Petersilea,
was to have given the first of a series of
Beethoven recitals at the Southern Califor
nia Music hall last night. Unhappily but
half a dozen people showed their discrim
ination by putting in an appearance. It
was not surprising that Mr. Petersilea
shou'd deem so meager an audience un
worthy of his abilities and reputation, and
he refused to play. The fate of tbe rest of
the series is not yet announced, but it is to
be hoped that the others may materialize
more fortuitously.

DR. A. T. SAN DEN—Dear Sir: I want you to know what your Electric Belt

know of a good thing. 1 have been a sufferer f 10m sciatica for five years or more,
and was pretty badly done up at times. When I would stoop over I would not be
able to get up again without great pain, and suffered a great deal from it. I got re

derful effect on my sl:ep also. Before using it I could rarely sleep more than four
hours during the night, but I can now sleep eight hours soundly and wake up in the
