THE ARGUMENT COMMENCED
THE uREAT HEADWORKS TRIAL IS RAP
IDLY NEARINQ THE END
dsn. Chapman Opens for Messrs. 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

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

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. The great Beecher saitl: "The
only door to trito knowledge is the sim
plicity of childhood."

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.
