THE TESTIMONY IS ALL IN
ARGUMENT COMMENCED IN THE HARMON
MURDEK TRIAL
The Defendant Telia His Story on the Witness
Stand—Shot; Carroll In {Self-Defense—
Supreme Court Opinions Received for Fil
ing—Brown Habeas Corpus Proceedings
The taking of testimony in the trial of
Lewis Harmon, charged with the murder
of Thomas Carroll in December last, closed
in department one of the superior court
before Judge Smith yesterday afternoon at
3:4f> oclock. After the examination of
several witnesses as to character the de
fendant was put upon the stand in his own
defense. As heretofore outlined, self
defense was the plea. After detailing the
events of the day of the tragedy, Harmon
came down to the actual shooting, lie had
accounted for having the revolver in his
possession by saying that, it had been re
turned to him by a friend to whom he had
loaned it, and had not had time to take it
home. He went to the saloon where the
Bhooting took place to get a shotgun bo
longing to him to take it home. When he
first, went to the saloon Carroll was not
there. Afterwards ho came in and made
a break at him with a knife. He warded
that off, when Carroll aeain came at him
with the knife, and, believing ttiat his life
was threatened, he drew his revolver and
eTiot him. Harmon told his story in a very
straightforward manner, and made a good
impression on ihe witness stand. He
would not have shot if Carroll had not
come at him with a knife.
At the cloto of tiie testimony District
Attorney Donnell opened the case for the
prosecution and was followed by Mr. Lu
cas of counsel for the defense, who spoke
up to the hour of adjournment. This
morning Mr. Hunsaker will speak and Dis
trict Attorney Donnell will close for the
people.
Supreme Court Opinions
' Three supreme court opinions wore re
ceived at the office of the clerk in this city
yesterday for filing.
In the case of Andrew J. O'Connor, re
ceiver of the defunct Consolidated National
bank of Ban Diego, respondent, vs. E. \Y.
Morse et al.. defendants, and .1. H. Braly,
appellant, the judgment ol' the trial court
'ia reversed. Braly was Burety on a non
negotiable note for $1308.90. On the day
of its date Mr. Kraly paid one-third of the
' note, and later wanted to pay the whole
amount, but wanted it stamped so that he
could bring suit on it: but his offer was re
' fused by the bank, as this would have
: slopped the interest and released Braly
from obligation to pay attorneys' fees.
The lower court gave judgment for the
amount. The supreme court says the re
" Fusal of the bank to accept payment was a
gross violation of duty antl good faith. The
appellant is clearly exonerated from lia
bility on the note and the court erred in
■ rendering judgment against him.
In the case of James T Dunn, appellant,
vs. Charles Price et al., respondents, the
supreme court has affirmed the decision of
the lower court. It was an action to recover
fO'session or value, alleged to be $116, of
four horses and two sets of harness. Judg
ment went for defendant.
* The judgment of the lower court is also
affirmed in the case of lieorge Taylor, re
spondent, vs. K. P. Hill (sheriff) and T.
West, jr., appellants. It was a suit to com
' pel the sheriff to apply proceeds of a sale
of property on execution to the payment of
claims of plaintiff and hia assignors for
labor performed for the judgment debters
within Bixty days preceding the levying of
the execution. The judgment went for the
plaintiff and the defendant appealed.
Committed to Whittier
Annie Kestner, the 13-year-old girl ar-
Gated in the Chicago lolging house, en
aln street, by Officer Long, was yester
day examined before Judge ('lark and
ordered committed to the reform school at
Whittier during her minority. Although
but 13 years old, the child is fully devel
oped and would easily pass for 18. She
confessed that she had been seduced when
but '.) years of age and had since contin
ued in her evil ways. She said that she
had once before been in a reform school
in Kansas, where she had been sent by
her mother. The girl did not show the
slightest shame at the position in which
she was placed. M,o said that she had
always had her own way, and did not see
why she should not continue to do so. She
said that she intended to return to a life
of shame on her release from the school.
She will be taken to Whittier this morning.
Suing for $20,000 Damages
The case of John P. White vs. Marrian
A. Thomson, Moses Bates Thompson and
C. M. Baker, a suit for $20,000 damages
for malicious prosecution, was on trial be
fore Judge Van Dyke yesterday. The
trouble grew out of the removal of a fence
between the property of the parties on
Cummings street, in Boyle Heights. White
removed the fence, and Baker arrested
him for malicious mischief. On the trial
before Justice Morrison White was ac
quitted, and then he instituted the dam
age suit. After hearing the testimony, a
motion for a non-suit as to the Thompsons
was granted by Judge Van Dyke, but de
nied as to Baker. The suit is really the
outcome of a neighborhood quarrel, and
Mr. White's weakness for litigation, he
having figured as the complaining witness
in one or two cases of a similar character
in the police court.
Pleased With the Remit
Deputy Sheriffe Marsh and Martin
Aguirre, who worked up the case against
I the brutal murderers of Mrs. Mary J. Piatt
■ at the Paehango reservation, were greatly
; pleased yesterday over the news from
' Kiversrle that Ventura Molino, one of the
I murderers, had pleaded guilty and been
I sentenced to imprisonment for life. This
! action on Molino's part insures the con
viction of the others, as he will be a wit
ness against them. Apuirre and Marsh
deserve great credit for the manner in
which they worked up the evidence in this
case. The murder was one of the most
brutal and unprovoked in the criminal
history of the state, and for a long time it
looked aa if the perpetrators would escape
justice, and the fact that they have all
been captured, and will probably pay the
extreme penalty, is cause for congratula
tion.
Said He Waa a Clurderer
Yesterday afternoon while Cnder Sheriff
Clements was sitting at his desk in his of
fice at the court house, an elderly man
walked in, and, announcing himself as the
I Whitechapel murderer, said that lie
' wanted to give himself up, as tlte pursuit
I had got too hot for him, and, after travel-
I ing all over the world, he had concluded to
,' surrender to the authorities. Mr. Clements
I asked the man how many women he had
I murdered, when he replied that he did not
know: all he wanted was to surrender
! himself and end the suspense. As the
; man was evidently insane, I lements took
I him over to the jail and locked him up.
He gave the name of .1. M. Covington. The
crank is evidently a man of some educa
tion. Nothing is known as to hia antece
dents.
Claim* Heavy Damages
I Dr. Denis .S. Green of I 'asadena yester
{ day filed a suit against W. I. F. and Marie
| Antoinette liandolph to recover $20,000
I damages for malicious prosecution. On
I the 17th inst. Dr. Green was arrested at
i I 'asadena on a charge of cruelty to ani
mals, on which he was tried before Justice
Morrison and acquitted. The plaintiff al
leges on information and belief that the
complaint was made by W. I. K. Randolph,
' the charges are false and that the defend
ant did not know them to be true when
made. The plaintiff claims that he has
bsen damaged to the amount named and
has brought suit to recover the money,
with coats.

On Trial for Embezzlement
Lloyd V. Nauscawen, formerly post
master at Visalia, was on trial in the
United States district court, before Judge
Wellborn, yesterday, on a charge of em
bezzling (7110 in government funds. The
case is a rather peculiar one, and the
friends of Nauscawen say that he is in
sane. He was a soldier in the late war,
and always stood well in Visalia before the
embezzlement. His friends say that he is
insane, and some strong testimony on that
line was introduced.
