Ebell Society Lecture
Before the Ebell society yesterday, at
2 p. m.. In its rooms on Main street, R.
B. Baumgart delivered an Interesting
and scientific address. The philosophy
of knowledge was under consideration
and the speaker treated the subject from
•11 standpoints. Mr. Baumgart propound
ed the questions of Hypatia: Where
are we 7 What am I? Whateanlknow?
Where am I loved? and treated of them
in a lucid manner. The various theories
of the origin or creation of the universe
■were expounded, the atheistic or self-ex
istence, pantheistic or self-created and
the theistic which says that the universe
was created by external agency.
He quoted extensively from the an
cient and modern philosophers, Algosolll,
the Arabian down to Spencer. "To
know more man must be more," and de
spite Mr. Baumgart's reasoning the sub
ject was left unsettled. After the lec
ture he answered questions propounded
by the audience, which consisted almost
exclusively of ladles.

Th* Judgment In the Pomeroy Water Suit Paid
Into Court by the City—Paaadena Elec
tloa Contest Piled—Court Newa
Joseph M. Kinley yesterday brought
suit against the Southern California
Railroad company for $50,000 damages,
the papers being filed just before 5
oclock. Mr. Kinley, who Is a well-knovn
attorney of this city, some days ago pur
chased a 500-mile ticket from the railroad
company, to be used at will, until the
same was exhausted, for which he paid
$12.56. He complied with the usual con
ditions, signing his name on the back of
the book as required. The ticket was
used at various times, until but 109 miles
remained. Having business at San Diego
Mr. Kinley boarded one of the company 's
trains, and when the conductor came
around to collect the tickets tendered
the 109 mileage remaining as part pay
ment of his fare, at the same time tender
ing the difference to make up the fare to
San Diego in cash. The complaint al
leges that the conductor, Instead of hon
oring the ticket, took it up, and insisted
on Mr. Kinley either paying his fare or
leaving the train, and when he demand
ed the return of the ticket refused to sur
render It, intimating that the name on the
back of the ticket was not his own, but
that It had been forged. Finally at Ana
heim the conductor put Mr. Kinley and
his baggage off the car when the train
proceeded to San Diego.
Mr. Kinley further alleges in his com
plaint that he was on his way to San
Diego on important legal business, and
that in consequence of the delay he suf
fered material damage, to say nothing
of the humiliation and disgrace of being
ejected from the train under the circum
stances in the presence of a large number
of people, and from the unjust and un
called for Insinuations of the conductor,
for all of which he asks $50,000 dam
Captain Janea Convicted
Captain Janes was yesterday convict
ed In the United States court before
Judge Wellborn of sending obscene mat
ter through the mails. Janes is the pub
lisher of a nondescript sort of a paper
which he calls the Non-Partisan. the like
of which does not exist perhaps in the
United States, and some time ago print
ed a most salacious article under tho
heading Ripe and Unripe Women, and it
was for sending copies of this paper con
taining this article through the malls
that he was indicted. As his defense,
James claimed that he did not deposit
the paper containing the obnoxious ar
ticle In the postofflce, and introduced
some character testimony. The jury was
only out about tf -'ty minutes, and
stood eleven to one • conviction on the
first ballot. A short time ago Janes had
a copy of the Bible sent to him through
the malls, and afterwards printed quo
tations from the Songs of Solomon,
which he claimed were in the same strain
Ets his urticlc.
James was iocked up In the county jail
last night. His attorney will make a mo
tion for a new trial this morning, i

charged with having threatened to kill
"Dr." Gay S. Allen, was yesterday put
under $500 to keep the peace, In default

finement, and it is alleged, as a result
of his Ignorance, she suffered serious in

wo has since been arrested on a charge
of practicing medicine without a license.
Mrs. Bentley was In court with her In
fant, while her husband took charge of
the other child, aged 4) or 5 years. She

that he will secure her release this

The third trial of James Marshall,

denominated fatal, and in place of hav
ing the error corrected, and proceeding
with the trial, the case was dismissed.

Stolen Diamonds and Jewelry Recovered
by tbe Police
Officer Reynolds' Clever Capture—Th* Hotel
del Coronado Systematically Plun
dered by the dang
A complaint alleging grand larceny
Will be sworn out against George Yore,
the 18-year-old bell-boy whose arrest
on Main street Tuesday night was ex
cluslvly mentioned in yesterday's Her
ald. When Officer Reynolds captured
him Yore was trying to dispose of a
diamond pin which had been stolen from
O. T. Johnson of the Westminster while
he was a guest of the Hotel del Coro
nado during the hotel men's visit to San
Mr. Johnson occupied room 147, and
while attending the banquet given to
the bonifaces, lost his Jewel. As stated,
there were at least four in the gang
who were systematically robbing the
hotel guests, and all were discharged at
the same time. They left San Die
go, came to this city and took lodgings
at 321 Temple street. His companions
left for San Francisco three days ago,
and from Yore's statement took with
them a large amount of stolen property.
Officer Reynolds, who made the arrest,
first had his suspicions aroused by the
boy's actions and maneuvers In trying
to sell the pin. He went intp one
pawnshop and offered it for a low price
and was directly accused Jjy the pawn
broker of stealing the article. At this
he snatched the pin and ran. When
first taken Into custody he said the dia
mond was given him by a relative, but
later in the evening was taken Into the
private office of Chief of Detectives
Moffltt and closely questioned. While
there he broke down and acknowledged
that the pin was stolen. While Chief
Glass and the detectives stepped aside
to consult a moment, Yore dropped sev
eral other pieces of Jewelry Into a spit
toon, but was discovered In the act.
On examination a pearl brooch, one
child's ring set with pearls, one ring set
with rubies and diamonds and a dia
mond shirt stud were found where he
had thrown them. All these articles
are evidently of the plunder the gang
secured, but are believed to constitute
only a small part of the whole. Yore stat
ed that he was but a tool In the hands
of his older accomplices and that the
above was merely his share of the stuff
stolen while they were employed at the
big hotel.
Word was sent to San Diego of the
capture and a reply was received that
an officer would come up Immediately
for the prisoner.

Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report
A Pleading Communication to
tbe City Council
The Fire Department to be Kept Out of
Several Plremen Were Up tor Dereliction of
Duty and Two are Dropped—Ed Smith
and the Poll Tax
The contention as to whether or not
the city has the right to usea the fire
hydrants which are the private prop
erty of the water company for street
sprinkling purposes is again reaching
an acute stage. The company is com
plaining and complaining very hard at
the shifting tactics of the council in
the matter, and yesterday its agents
filed the following:
It is with regret that the undersign
ed, the Los Angeles City Water com
pany, has to call the attention of your
honorable body to a burden that is be
ing imposed upon the city water com
pany, and has grown to such an extent
that the company cannot very well
longer submit to it; but they prefer be
fore commencing any legal proceedings
for the protection of their rights to call
the attention of the council to it, in
the hope that you will, without the ne
cessity of litigation, protect the com
pany by your own action.
By referring to the contract between
the city and Griffin, Beaudry and Liz
ard, which contract has been assigned
to the Los Angeles City Water com
pany, you will see that among the things
which the grantees of the franchises
there conferred undertook to do were
to lay down in the streets of the city
twelve miles of iron pipes of sufficient
capacity to supply the inhabitants of
said city with water lor domestis pur
poses and should erect or cause to be
erected one hydrant to be used as a
protection against fire at one corner of
each cross street of said city where the
water pipes now are or may hereafter
be laid by virtue of this contract, and
again that they will within one year
from the date of the contract place a
hydrant to be used as a protection
against fire at one corner of one street
at each cross street where the pipes are
now laid, and will erect hydrants at
other street corners, according to tho
terms of this contract, as fast as the
pipes are extended through the streets
of said city, and again, that they will
make all the improvements mentioned
and set forth in the contract and keep
the same in repair at their own cost
and expense for the said period of thirty
The company has erected fire hy
drants In accordance with the contract,
and are still placing them wherever
it is requested by the council, and it
has been keeping them In repair at
its own expense.
But you will see by the provisions
above quoted that, they were to be erect
ed to, be used as a protection against
fire, and that was the only purpose to
which they were to be devoted. But the
hydrants which the company has thus
far erected for protection against fire
are> being used, for the purpose of fill
ing the street sprinklers engaged In
sprinkling thel streets! of Los Angeles,
and by such use the burden of maintain
ing them is increased fifty fold, and
as these fire hydrants have become very
numerous and are constantly increas
ing in number,, increased: cost) of main
taining them in repair, when such use
is made of them, is very great, and the
company now protests against such use
being made of the" hydrants; at, all, un
less indeed the city choose to assume
the burden of maintaining them' ir, re
pair. And we respectfully request the
council to forbid the using of the hy
drants by the street sprinklers, or' else
that the council will' engage: to pay the
expense of maintaining the hydrants in
