lo Justice Young's Court Room
Yesterday Afternoon
Made a Rush at Defendant and Deputies
Have to Interfere
Meeting ol the Bar In Memory ot (Jen. nana.
|| 11*14—Truman Burglary Caoe Con-
ttnued Till Today
What promised to be a very ordinary
and uninteresting ease ln Township J us
tlce Young's court yesterday, developed
an incident ln the atternoon that was
distinctly exciting. William Parrlott
was suing W. H. Howard for wages al
leged to be due him for twenty days'
work at repairing a threshing machine
at 16 the day. The first witness placed
on the stand ln the morning, a man nam
ed Berry, was apparently very much an
noyed at being kept waiting a couple of
hours, and made no bones about so tell
ing the court and defendant's counsel,
whose witness he was. He firmly re
fused to give any evidence until his wit
ness fee was paid. The justice upheld
the demand and the witness was finally
pacified by a dollar being thrown on the
table. In the afternoon there was a very
lively five minutes, which very much
demoralized the appearance of the
courtroom. Attorney Murphy was ad
dressing the court for the p'tint iff,
when Mr. Bordwell, counsel for the de
fense. Interrupted him and maintained
that he was misquoting the testimony.
Mr. Murphy repeated what he had said
and Mr. Howard then intervened by tell
ing him not to state falsehoods. Mut
phy told the defendant to keep quiet,
but Howard repeated that Murphy was
stating what was untrue. The alterca
tion was growing very warm when How
ard made a rush at Murphy and at
tempted to hit him. The men closed and
were only separated by the efforts of
Constable Yonkln and several deputies
who rushed forward to Interfere. Cus
pidors were overturned and the furni
ture generally disarranged. Howard
declared that it would Just take him
two minutes to do up his assailant.
When order was restored Murphy apol
ogised and then repeated the testimony
as corrected by Mr. Bordwell. Finally
the case was taken under advisement.
The Truman Burglary
The case of the people vs. G. B. Bryant
arraigned for the burglary of Major Ben
Truman's house on the) 4th of February,
when a number of valuable Jewels were
stolen, was on motion of counsel for
the defendant continued till this morn
ing at 10 oclock. There is also a charge
pending against Bryant for burglarious
ly entering the house of Horatio It. Has
kell on the night of the r.th Inst. Mrs.
and Miss Truman were both on hand to
testify In the former case, and were
much disconcerted at the postponement,
since they had already been consider
ably Inconvenienced to be present. MaJ.
Truman was also much provoked and
went upstairs to complain to Gen.Will
lams in the district attorney's office. The
ladles declared that they could not be
present on the morrow, but Gen. Will
lams Insisted they must obey the sum
mons of the court.
In connection with this case Carl En
tenman, a jeweler, has brought a
cult in replevin against Constable Good
man in the township justice's court.
Goodman found Inßntenman's establish
ment five diamonds which he was so
certain belonged to a ring that disap
peared when Major Truman's house was
burglarized that he retained them.

Three Young Men Whose Room Is
Preferable to Tbeir Company
Detectives Arrest Them on Suspicion, but
Release the Trio Upon a Promise
to Leave the City
By this time there are probably three
crooks less In the city, as Brown Math
ney, A. P. Ryerson and Frank Gillespie
who were arrested on Thursday morning
by Detectives Hawley and Auble. were
yesterday released from the city Jail and
advised to make themselves scarce Thlj
precious trio arrived in the city during
Fiesta week, but were soon spotted by
the detectives and have since been con
stantly under surveillance. As showing
the character of these men a little of
their record is quoted:
Brown Mathney is about 33 years old
and was first heard of In this city some
time In 1891, when he was arrested by
Detective Benson, together with the no
torious Eddie Moran, bank burglar and
all round crook. Benson saw them bury
some drills, caps and fuse in the founda
tions of the Tenth street hotel, and in
their room found powder and burglars'
tools, which Indicated that the pair were
contemplating some Job. There was no
case against them, but they were run
out of town in short order. The next
heard of Mathney he was arrested In
Oakland on a charge of murder. One
night, nearly three years ago, a grocery
store In that city was burglarized and
the thieves surprised at their work by
two officers. A running revolver flglit
followed, in which one burglar and an
Officer were killed. The other thief got
Mathney was arrested, and had two
trials on a charge of murdering the po
liceman. On the first the Jury disagreed
and on the second lit? was acquitted.
Then he was prosecuted on thehurglarv
charge, also est aping in this instance
Altogether he was in Jail in Oakland
some eighteen months. He Is said to
be one of the smoothest crooks on the
Ryerson is a young man about the
same age as Mathney. nnd was only re
cently released from a term in San Quen
tln, w here he served fifteen months for
forgery. He Is also front Oakland and a
hag egg. of Gillespie not so much is
known. He is about 28 years old and
cv idently on a bad road, as his asso
ciates would Indicate. There is said to
be still another member of the gang in
the city, hut he has not been taken in
aud will probably get out of his own
Shortly after their arrival the men
were spotted, although they avoided the
most public streets, and every move
they have made has been carefully not
ed. They occupied rooms in different
i Parts of the city and only met at night
Mathney and Ryerson had a room on
Buena Vista street, and Gillespie one on
South Main. There was also another
place on Temple street where confer
ences were held. A close watch on them
was kept, and everywhere they went
they were followed, their habits, asso
ciates and meeting places ascertained in
order to get an idea of what they were
up to.
It was the intention of the officers to
give them enough rope to hang them
selves, but the plan miscarried. Thurs
day morning Detectives Hawley and
Auble gained access to Gillespie's room
after he had gone out to breakfast in
the morning, and were placing private
marks on his clothing, hats, etc., in or
der to know them should they be left
at the scene of a crime, when Gillespie
suddenly and unexpectedly returned 'o
the apartment, having forgotten his
watch. Nothing remained but to arrest
him. which was done. An hour or two
later Mathney and Ryerson were bagged
and their room searched.
Every man was heavily armed with
revolvers and three masks were found,
also a quantity of dynamite caps. No
burglars' tools were discovered. At the
station the men were closely Interrogat
ed and their photos taken for the rogues'
gallery. Yesterday morning the tro
w ere taken out and shown to the morn
ing watch of police, who were warned
to look out for them. Later In the day
the men were released and told to leave
the city immediately, or they would be
arrested as vagrants. This they have
probably done. All are finely dressed
and seemed to have plenty of money,
and would be the last persons to be sus
pected of such desperate characters.
Altogether their departure is a good
thing for the community, and the de
tectives are to be congratulated for
their good work:

The New Hack Ordinance Not
Entirely Satisfactory
The Board of Public Works Failed to
• Meet at the Usual Time
Owing te the Absence ol a Hejorlty el ths
Members — Building; Permits Issued.
Petitions and Protests Filed
The draft nf the proposed new hack
ordinance as prepared by a committer
ot the Merchants' association and the
hackmen. and published in The Herald
yesterday morning, does not appear to
be entirely satisfactory to a large num
ber of business men and property own
ers, and it. will not be allowed to pass
without a vigorous protest. The fact
that Broadway, between First and Sec
ond streets, has not been included in the
territory covered by the ordinance is
especially objectionable, and several
business men having offices on that
block were on hand at the city hall yes
terday morning to enter their protests.
The effect of leaving out this block
they say, will have the effect of forcing
vehicles from the proscribed districts
upon them, which will result in prat -
tleally blockading the street. As it
is now, they say, they feel the incon
venience of .standing vehicles along the
curbs more severely than any other part
of the business section, for the reason
that several of the truck companies
have offices near by, and their huge ve
hicles remain on the streets during al
most the entire day. Property owners
on the blocks adjoining the proscribed
territory are also up in arms, as they
are fearful that they will be overrun
with vehicles of all descriptions. Al
together the outlook for the proposed
new ordinance is anything but encour
The property owners oft the north side
of Main street, between Marchessault
and Ord streets, ask for the dismissal of
proceedings for the laying of a cement
sidewalk at that place, on the ground
that Ihe bid of IS cents per square foot
Is unreasonable and excessive, and fur
ther that It is not needed at this time.
Property owners on the east side of
Hope street, between the Normal school
grounds and Sixth street, petition for a
twelve-foot cement sidewalk, wdth ce
ment curb, at all points where the same
Is not now completed.
Property owners along Bunker Hill
avenue between First and Court streets
petition for the change of grade on
Runker Hill avenue on that block, so
that the elevations above sea level at a
point 133.5 feet north of First street shall
be on the west side 397.7:: feel,-and on the
east side at a point 133.5 feet north of
First street the grade shall be 397.73 feet
above sea level. At the northeast and
northwest corners of First street and
Runker Hill avenue the grade shall be
as now established on First street, at
405 feet above sea level. At the south
east corner of Court street and Bunker
Hill avenue the elevation shall be ;t;«r.
feet above the sea level, and at the
southwest corner of Court street and
Runker Hill avenue the elevation shall
he 394.5 feet above sea level, as now es
A numerously signed protest has also
been riled by property owners against
the proposed grading and Hilling on
Hunker Hill avenue, between Temple
and First streets, according to the ordi
nance posted on said street,
Mayor Rader yesterday received a let
ter from M. McLean, Plnos Altos. N. M..
asking for Information about a man
named John c. Caskey. who Is supposed
to be in this city or vicinity. Caskey is
described as being over six feet tall,
with blue eyes and light hair, and the
forefinger of ea< h hand missing. He is
about 26 years of age.
There was no meeting of the board of
public works yesterday. Councilman
Munson was out of the city, and as he
had the key to the desk in which the
archives of the board are kept, nothing
could be done. Besides, Mr. Kingerv
had to officiate at a school (lag-raising
in his ward, as the proxy of Rev. Mr.
Pitman of the bo*rd of education, who
had not returned from his missionary
labors among the delegates at the Re
publican convention at Sacramento
This being the cafe, Mr. Pessell met and
adjourned until 10 oclock this morning,
when the regular business will be pro
ceeded with. The most important mat
ter to come up Is the new hack ordl- :
nance, and Mr. Knight of the Merchants'
asoclation and a representative of the
hackmen were on hand to advocate the
measure prepared by them, and which
was published ln The Herald yesterday
The following permits were issued by
the building superintendent yesterday:

Examination el the Time Check Swindlers
Set for flay 13th
Before Justice Oweiis in the police
court yesterday afternoon B. P. Carnl
cle, A. M. Carpenter, Frank Hamm and
George Mitchell were arraigned on
charges of feloniously, fraudulently and
knowingly issuing and discounting
forged, false and fictitious time checks
on the Newell and Gammon block.
When originally arrested Carpenter,
Hamm and Mitchell were arraigned on
two charges of forgery each, but it was
feared that a conviction could not be
obtained on this count, as the alleged
signers of the checks are undoubtedly
fictitious and have no existence. It is a
plain proposition that if a man does not
exist his alleged name cannot be forged.
In accordance with this determination,
the quartet were first arraigned on the
new complaints, there being three each
against Carnicle, Carpenter and Hamm
and one against Mitchell. Time for ex
amination, by consent of all parties, was
set for "Wednesday, May 13, at 10 a. m.
None of the men were represented by
attorney, but all will be at the examina
tion. After this proceeding was com
pleted and time had arrived for going
on with the_examlnatlon on the first
complaints, Deputy District Attorney
James stepped forward and asked that
they be dismissed, which whs accord
ingly done and the three defendants dis
charged so far as they were concerned
The ball on each count of the last three
complaints was fixed at $2000, which will
leave Carnicle, Carpenter and Hamm
$6000 each to procut-e in order to be re
leased and Mitchell $2000. None have as
yet been able to secure the necessary
Carnicle has fully recovered from the
faint-Ins; spell or fit which he sustained
Thursday morning In the county Jail,
and expressed himself as feeling ln his
usual health. He Is ln hopes to soon se
curebondsmen and be released pending
further proceedings.

jAH Competition With the Popular Sile
Temporarily Withdrawn
I All Forces tO.Unlte Upon an E fort to Supply a
Lonz Nieded Tourist Hjtel for This
City Immediately
' The plan to erect the proposed Adams
street tourist hotel now stands before
this community without competition, all
parties connected with both that and the
! Westlake enterprise having agreed to
this arrangement yesterday. The Ad
ams street, project being "first in the
Held, and having developed sufficient
i favor to insure ultimate success, it has
! been agreed that the speedy perfection
of the enterprise shall not be retarded
by any competitive effort. The Wll
shire company, generous subscribers to
the original enterprise upon Adams
street, has withdrawn its subscription
list pending the completion of the fund
for the Adams street proposition, or un
' til July Ist. This action enables citi
zens who recognize the imperative ne
! cesslty to this city or a first-class tour
■ Ist hotel, to promptly aid that object
, without dividing their subscriptions be
tween friendly rival enterprises.
The Adams street proposition eontem
j plates the erection of such a hotel as
shall be fully the erjua] of the best ap
-1 pointed establishments of the kind 111
i America, it has already reached a stag ■
w here the leading capitalists, corpora
■ tlons and citizens generally look upon It
With favor, and are supporting it ln pro
portion to their financial ability. None
! question its wisdom or necessity, and
' the only reason that its success has been
i thus long delayed Is the now-endetl com
| petition which it has encountered. It
I is confidently expected that the whole
I amount of the balance now required will
jbe raised within the present month.
To accomplish this desirable end it is
j only necessary for citizens to subscribe
i as they ate convinced they should. Tip.
I issue Is now unequivocally before this
j community, ami if it wants a hotel It
j must signify that fact by subscribing
to the required fund. Generous help will
be needed, and this worthy enterprise
will stand or fall depending upon
whether that help is given.
! Below is the correspondence leading
to the agreement:
LOS ANGELES, Cal.. Hay 8,1896.
J. S. Slauson, Esq., and Others. Adams
street Hotel Committee—Gentlemen: It
seems to be the impression that the Ad
ams street hotel project and the Wllshire
boulevard hotel cannot both be carried
to a successful issue at the same time.
:ind that by attempting to carry both
simultaneously both are likely to fail.
AYe profoundly feel the *)"eat public need
of a good tourist hotel in this city, and
believe that all personal Interests should
yield lo this need. We havo shown our
good will toward your project by sub
si rlhlnsr $100(1 to your donation fund, that
it may not be said that we have In any
way contributed to the failure of your
I inject, If It shall fail. We now offer
to temporarily withdraw the Wllshire
boulevard hotel project until the Ist day
of July next, so that your committee
tan push its work to a successful Issue,
believing that if you succeed we shall
also hereafter succeed, and whether you
succeed or fail with your project we hope
thereafter to receive the generous assist
ance of your committee and friends.
Yours very respectfully,
By W. B. Wllshire.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 8,1896.
The Wllshire Company—Oentlemen:
We have just received your letter with
drawing until July Ist your project for
a tourist hotel upon the beautiful Wll
shire boulevard tract. Your subscrip
tion of $1000 heretofore made to the
Adams street hotel, together with this
more than generous and self-sacrificing
offer of withdrawal of your projected
enterprise, is fully appreciated by us
and doubtless will be by this commun
ity, and greatly encourages us in the
hope and belief that Los Angeles will
now have a tourist hotel worthy of the
wants of this place.
Truly yours.

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts —gentle efforts —pleasant efforts -
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
j sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
! tion of the system, which the pleasant
, family laxative, Syrupof Figs, prompt-
Ily removes. That is why it is the only
; remedy with millionsof families, and is
j everywhere esteemed so highly by all
1 who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
: one remedy which promotes internal
, cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene-
I ftcial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that yon have the genuine arti-
I cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies arc then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative.
. one should have the best, and with the
| well-informed everywhere. Syrup of
Fig's stands highest ami is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction.
