Pomeroy and Hooker, and Is Followed by nr. Scott for the People—An Important Point In Probste l.sw Decided by Judge Clark. Argument commenced in the great head ! works condemnation suit before Judge Shaw yesterday. The city had secured : sjtne valuable testimony after the ad journ mont of court, which thoy wished to intro duce, but Judge Shaw declined to again i open up the case and the argument ] opened. The courtroom was comfortably ] died, most of those in attendance being * the civil engineers and other experts who I had testified on one side or the other, with I a fair sprinkling of attorneys. (ion. Chapman opened for Mossrn. Pom l eroy ol- Hooker. The general is regarded ia? one of the best authorities on water 1 lavs in the state, and he had fortified hint ! self w : th a largo amount of data in support of hi* contention. Tho speaker ridiculed tke testimony offered by the experts for theoity, beinu especially severe on Mr. Purcell. He said it was an absurd propo sition to claim that all the water whicli fell over the watershed became a part of the i Los Angeles river. The water <m the Providencia rancli had no connection with ! the Los Angeles river. It was percolating j water and belonged to the laud. General j Chapman further pointed out tiiat the ex j perts for the city had failed to account for j several thousand inches of water whicli I even they admiited had fallen. The cross j' section made by the city on which so | much stress was laid, he said was ab solutely worthies*, so £ar as proving any thing was concerned. Another matter touched upon by General Chapman was what he called the unfair manner in which the calculations made by these experts as to the rnn-off and evaporation had been made. He declared that all his side wanted were the facts in the case, antl that this apparently was not what waa wanted by the other side. General Chapman care fully dissected the testimony of each ex pert, and reiterated his statement that by no stretch of tho imagination could the water in question be connected with the flow of the Los Angeies river. It was per | colating water pure and simple, and as I such belonged to the owners of the land. General Chapman spoke for about live hours. Mr. Scott of Lee it Scott followed for the city. Mr. Scott in hi* turn ridiculed the statements of General Chapman, and in a j general way claimed that all the water, j both on the surface and underground, be ) longed to the Los Angeles river, and that j any diversion would lessen the flow ill the ' stream. Today Judge Variel will follow Mr. Scott and City Attorney Dunn will probably close for the city. Supreme Court Opinions. Two supreme court opinions were re ceived at the office of the clerk yesterday for tiling. In the case of Simpson, plaintiff aud re spondent, vs. Ferguson, defendant and | appellant, from Riverside county, heard in I bank after being heard in department, the opinion of the department that the judg ment of the lower court should be reversed jis sustained and the court below directed : to modify it in accordance witli ihe motion of appellant. The suit grew out of a mort -1 gage on a growing crop. In the case of Frank B. Merriam. appel lant, vs. Maria Poggi Bachioni and Louis Bachioni, respondents, from San Diego county, the judgment and order of the lower court are affirmed. The opinion is written by Commissioner liritt, concurred in by Commissioners Van Chef and Belcher j and affirmed hy Justices McFarland, Ter n! pie and Henshaw. The suit grew out of j the possession of a tract of public land in San Diego county. The State Hay Contest In the matter of the estate of C. de Rey nolds, deceased, before Judge Clark yes terday, an opinion was tiled sustaining the demurrer to tiie complaint and allowing ■ tendaysin whicli to amend. Incidentally, I however, his lienor ruled tiiat in case a i person died leaving no heirs at law the i state may contest the will, as au heir | might, as the succession is regulated hy : the code. In the estate in question, de ! ceased, having no heirs, left her estate to ; Mrs. de Fay by will. On this will being ' offered for probate, the people, at the rela i tion of the attorney general, contested the ! same. Tiie demurrer was sustained on the | ground that the complaint was not prop erly drawn, it having failed to state that I deceased had no husband and was a widow ! at the time of her death. | The suit is in the nature of a test case, ] and much interest is felt among the legal profession over the outcome. The Brown Rape Ccie The examination of Mehan and Mori no. the two men charged witli rape on the per son of Little I.ydia Brown, was concluded beiore Township .1 ustice Young yesterday. Tiie mother of the child corroborated her story as to Mohan, and lie was held to j answer in $1000 bail. The child refused ! to testify against Morino. and lie was dis i charged. Judge McKinley made an order giving i the custody of the children to the father, I and a home has been found for them with I Mrs. Watson. The mother was without ] means to pay her fare to San Fernando, j and this was r ised hy Sheriff Burr and she was sent home. This ends the episode j for the time being. j Let Down Uaiy Charles Heitsmith, charged with violat ing the postal laws, yesterday pleaded J guilty and was sentenced to ten days im prisonment in Ihe county jail. Heitsmith I recently sent a dunning postal card to ] Harry Benton of Pasadena. The case was ; tried in the Cnited States district court be fore Judge Wellborn, and the penalty im posed is one of the lightest on record for the offense charged. New Informations File!

Gov't Report Powder UPON THE RECENT SEANCE A SKEPTIC IS ANSWERED KINDLY AND CONSIDERATELY A Man Msy Be Wise In Physical .Science and Earthly Lore and Yet Know Nothing of the Silent Forces and Hidden, Though Existing, Laws ol Nature A communication In tho form of an open letter to Edward Hutchison, the kicker, and signed Ella Lucy Hefriam, of 323 West Second street, lias been sent to Ihb Herald, It reads as follows* 1 have just read your alltisio;. to a recent seance, given by Elsie Reynolds in Music hall, in this morning's (Monday) HERALD. I often see your name appended to articles on tl ie sido of reform, as you see it. All of us Who love truth, law and order, etc., cannot but be moved by the inharmony and inequality now holding high carnival in every department of our world, aud feel impelled to speak our aggrieved feelings to the public, whenever a kind editor permits us. But when we approach the domain of the occult—the invisible, many of us, be ing as those ''Who have ears, hear not; and having eyes, see not," need to have a care, lest we lie "wise only in our own conceit." 1 was once, dear sir, aa skeptical as your self, concerning the phenomena of spirit ualism. Possibly more so. In fact, I was so bigoted, thai i lied from any contact with it, or its defenders. What I then termed an accident brought me face to face witli evidences of inter-communion, which, after carefully weighing and sifting to have discarded as delusions, and fraud, would have been to lay aside my senses. For eleven years I have carefully pursued these phenomena. I have endeavored to avoid too much enthu siasm either way. A home circle of inves tigators, privately and honestly conducted, has led me to my prosont attitude, whicli is, in the lirst place, to "judge not." Sec ond, a man may be very wise in physical science and earthly lore and yet know nothing of these silent forces—these hid" den laws that move and unite and supply the necessary conditions ot communicat ing with those who are thus proven im mortal. I witnessed this same seance witli you, and while sitting there among those "misguided people," feoling their skepti cism all about me. I thought how differ ently the same affair appears to those of differing moods, ( luce I would have been able to perceive only fraud or suspicions of fraud, while now I perceive the grandeur of the possibilities of such a seauee. Eleven years ago I would have Inwardly hooted at and possibly outwardly condemned, as you have done, that of which I personally knew nothing, my changed iueas being the out- j come of an experience interwoven with as j little prejudice as possible, desiring only i the truth. Do you know, my friend, what it must be to present yourself for publio mediumsbip, to place yourself before nil their merciless shafts of suspicion, keen, satirical orlti" cism and contempt, not only for the me* dium, but for the cause site represents? When even many inwardly cry, "crucify him, crucify himl" A medium is a sen sitive and his or her brain a sensitized plate, in direct(oontar-t with all the vulgar curiosity, cold scrutiny and rude influences brought to near upon It. How can wo ex pect them to become passive anil kind enough in their own minds and soujs as to rise to their possibilities as instruments ol the highest, the grandest philosophy on record! When the public learns that "many things, hidden from tho wise and prudent are revealed unto babes"—that totlay we are sitting in the partly open door of a new and brighter revelation than earth lias yet received and tbat that revelation can only come through certain laws, only as yet dimly perceived but not understood even by its votaries, then we will attend those places its students do the best they can under all conditions, seen and un seen, within and without, soberly and be comingly. We will go in the spirit of truth, and desire to learn,and toassist,and because we cannot explain or peer into the intricacies of the phenomena ourselves, we will not go away laden with opprobriums for the medium, nor slurs at mediumship. Mediurasnip has its own laws, and mediums have a hard enough time, those who conscientiously try to set forth this truth, without reaping unjust criticisms. I believe we cannot lie too careful about what we send to a newspaper in the way of condemnation, lest we un consciously wound and wrong some one who may be just as honest as we are our selves.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Busy Preparing an Exhibit for san Fran- Cisco—New Displays The Covina Citrus association today sent tho chamber of commerce two boxes of fine navel oranges, 180 to the box, bright and smooth skinned.

The secretary of the San Diego chamber of commerce writes that they are arrang ing to pay the chamber a visit in a body Fiesta week. J. A, Filcherof the California Press club writes that the association is arranging a visit iiere for La Fiesta. 1!. F. Bunker of the San Francisco Daily Report, president of the Half Million club, writes that it will be with us to witness the scones of La Fiesta. The chamber is engaged in an effort to bring the excursion of Minneapolis states men, now in San Francisco, down here and iiope to snooped. Mayor Under sends the secretary of the chamber a letter from L. G. Smith of Fos toria, (J., asking for a sample of the whit est sand from this section, stating that if it prove to be what it is thought it will result lin an important industry being brought I here. Does this mean a glass factory? It is one of the industries of Fostoria, Sicretary C. D. Willard is home from San Diego, much improved by the little ■ est he has enjoyed. HE WANTED LIQUOR. [ And Because He Did Not (Jet It Raised a Row. R. V. Musso runs a grocery store at 213 Wilmington street, which place was last evening entered by a plumber named .1. F. O'Connor, wiio already bad a good load of liquids aboard and wanted more. When told that the place was not a saloon and he could not procure what was wanted, O'Con nor become abusive and was ordered to leave. Not going, Musso jumped in and put him out, using force when O'Connor resisted. After getting the man out and cutting his nose with a smash in the face, Musso had him arrested and jailed for drunkenness. Lightweights Challenged Kid O'Brien, judging from a letter re ceived yesterday, is anxious for a fight. Here is a cony of his communication: Sporting Editor Herald: I hereby chal lenge any lightweight in Southern Califor nia to box me fifteen rounds or more at 130 pounds, give or take two pounds, for $.r>o a side, before any reliable club,which shall hang up a substantial purse, Jack Fogerty preferred. Only boxers meaning business need respond to this challenge. The Rush at Fixen & Co.'s While the saying that women are "born shoppers" is but too true, yet they have the discernment to know a bargain when they see it. This was proven by the crowds of women that thronged the store of Fixen & Co. yesterday to attend their muslin underwear Bale of some 2400 gar ments. There is no mistake about it— those garments were bargains, and the buying fair sex seemed to appreciate it. Fixen & Co.'s reputation for doing as they advertise is unitnpeached, and when ad vertisements of bargains appear over tiieir name in the daily press it ia always taken advantage of by those of judgment. Wanted to Shoot. In an alley back of the Grace Methodist church John Stonier was last night found drunk. On being arrested and placed in the patrol wagon he got obstreperous and told Officer Robbins that he proposed to kill him. at the same time reaching for his hip pocket. Robbins was too quick for him, however, and removed from his per son a small-sized cannon before Stoulon could get to use it. He was booked as a plain drunk.
