Would-Be Highwayman Found
Guilty as Charged
A Busy Day In {he United States Circuit
and District Courts
Fulkerson flust Stand Trial for Using tha
flails lor Conducting a Lottery Scheme.
Qeneral Court News
Walter Prescott, the would-be high
wayman, who attempted to hold up
Frank Walker, a conductor on the Uni
versity electric car line on the night of
February 6th last, was tried in depart
ment one before Judge Smith yesterday,
and convicted of assault with intent to
rob. Prescott boarded tlie car near
Thirty-first street, on its last trip in, and
when the conductor came to him for his
fare he presented a large revolver and
commanded Walker to give up his coin.
Walker retained his presence of mind,
and continued to engage the would-be
robber In conversation for a distance
of five or six blocks, when he caught him
off his guard and knocked him off tho
car with his Hist, TheeaOndUOtor did not
stop his car, and Prescott would never
have been arrested if he had kept his
mouth shut.
Some days later, however. In con
f ned in Folsom penitentiary at the same
time that Prescott was doing time, he
gave the whole thing away. The man
was making inquiries about another one
of the gang, when Prescott told him that
he had run away. The man in question,
he said, had been implicated with him
In attempting to hold up a street car
conductor, and had lost his nerve and
left the city. When asked why he, too,
did not leave the city he said that there
was no danger, as he could not be iden
tified, and he was therefore safe. I,ater
the man was telling about the incident
to a young Mexican lad, who in turn
hunted up Police Officer Talaniantes,
and Prescott's arrest followed.
At the trial yesteray Prescott was pos
itively Identified by the plucky conduc
tor as the man who had tried to hold
him up, and all the evidence went to
show that he was the right man. In his
defense, Prescott swore that he was not
In the city at the time of the attempted
rbbbery, but was engaged In beating his
way to Los Angeles from Arizona. On
his arrival In the city he had been ar
rested by the police on a charge of hav
ing stolen a lot of tobacco, but this could
r.ot be proven against him and he was
released. He was again arrested on the
same charge, but the prosecution fell
down on this also and he was again re
leased, but was subsequently arrested
on the charge on which he was being
The story told by Prescott was such a
palpable fabrication that the jury wasted
but little time in deliberation, and re
turned a verdict of guilty as charged.
Two Decision! by Judge Ro»s Against the
Southern Pacific—Other Mattere
Judge Ross of the United States cir
cuit court handed down two important
opinions yesterday concerning the right
of the Southern Pacific railroad com
pany to lands under Its grant. The de
cision in each case was against the rail
road company.
The cases were entitled Southern Pa
cific Railroad vs. Amicus Smith, and
Southern Pacific Railroad vs. Otto
Groechi and they were fully argued some
months since by Mr. Singer on behalf
of the railroad and J. H. Call on behalf
of the defendants. The court holds In
substance that the Southern Pacific
railroad was guilty of gross laches and
delay In falling to file its map of defin
ite location and to select the lands, and
that five years of such delay would de
feat the claim of the company to the
lands as against the entries of the de
fendants. The court further holds that
where the company lost landn on one
side of Its road within the granted
limits by reason of prior disposal by
the government that it cannot go on
the other side to make up such defi
ciencies by selection, but that such se
lections must be made from the same
side of the line upon which the losses

but as the parties have not been arrested

adjourned until Monday next.
To Cancel Certain Deeds
Judge York yesterday heard the case
of J. Butler vs. F. C. Smith and took the
same under advisement. Mrs. Butler is
suing to cancel certain deeds to real
estate and also an assignment of mort
gage, both of which she made to de
fendant, and to recover about $400 no

checks on as many hanks, which checks

her estate, and by reason of his position
she had full confidence in him. It was

which occasioned him .to do the acts he
has to her detriment. She also states
that her own mind has been affected

James Burdette appeared In court fnr
the defendant and demurred to the onm

presents a misjoinder of actions, whfbh
he stated could not be done. Counsel
for the plaintiff held that the action was
tn accounting and therefore as many
causes could be joined as the pleader
had a mind.
The Lytic Creek Case
The case of the Lytle Creek Water
and Improvement company vs. the
Orapeland Irrigation district entered on
Its fourth week before Judge MoKinlev
yesterday. The testimony is mostly
technical, and promises to continue for
several weeks yet. The fight is over
the waters of Lytle creek, in San Ber
nardino county.

rar the statement of fact seemed
plain and easy of substantiation. When
evidence began to be taken, however,
the lying commenced, and continued on
one Bide or the other until the last wit
ness was disposed of. From the mass of
contradictory testimony Justice Young
finally decided to give the plaintiff Judg
ment for $100.
I The Lower Court Reverted
In the case of the people vs. C. D.Piatt,
on appeal from the Justice's court, Judge
Smith yesterday reversed the judgment
of the lower court and the defendant
was awarded a new trial in department
one. Piatt, who Is a Jeweler by trade,
and who has frequently figured in the
courts on divers charges, was convicted
of malicious mischief iv throwing acid

Their Petitions Denied
Charles E. Lovell, a native of England,
yesterday applied for admission to cit
izenship before Judge Clark. Lovell is
a deaf mute, and an Interpreter of the
finger language had to be sworn In. His
examination was not satisfactory, and
Judge Clark told him that he would have
to study the constitution a little more
before he could come in. Lovell In
sisted that he had studied the constitu
tion, but he could not make himself
understood very well through his Inter
preter, and was accordingly turned down
for the time being, at least.
Lewis Bayer, a native of Germany,
was also denied admission. Bayer
knew thnt the law-making power of
the United States was vested In con
gress, tiut when he solemnly asserted
that the senators were elected by the
people Judge Clark told him that he had

college, was yesterday arraigned be

No Divorce for Brlcker
In the divorce suit nf Wiliam J. Brlck
er vs. Addle G. Brlcker, tried before
Judge McKinley some days ago, judg
ment was yesterday given for the de
fendant dismissing the action. The case
was one of the most sensational that has
been before the courts for some time
past, and the disclosures were anything
but creditable to either party. The judge
evidently concluded that it was six of
one and half a dozen of the other, and
acted accordingly.
Suit to Recover
William E. Pile, as trustee of an ex
press trust, yesterday brought suit
against Frederick Stock to recover $.144,
with interests and costs. The defendant

A Subject ol Queen Vie and the Silvery War
bier, Mickey Ualton
Among the batch of twelve drunkards
that appeared in the prisoners' dock in
the police court yesterday afternoon
were two who were distinctly original
in the pleas and actions. Jim Murray
is Irish and a loyal subject of old Queen
Vie evidently, from the kick which he
registered against being tried in an
American court. Murray was taken to
the station last Saturday night in th"
patrol wagon, being utterly unable to
navigate, yet he persisted that he was
n°t drunk, but had that tired feeling for
which he had taken something else be
sides sarsaparilla. It did not matter
much, however, what the trouble was,
the justice could not try him without
the queen s counsel being present to look
after him, as he had never renounced
his allegiance to the old sod. Justice
Owens overruled his strenuous objec

Mickey Dalton, the sweet-voiced sing
er of the chain-gang cell, appeared on
on Intoxication complaint, but he was
recognized as an escape and tried on
that count. On April 2d Dalton, under
the name of Welsh, was taken in for
drunkenness, and on the Bth sentenced
to thirty days in jail. He worked on
the chain gang but two days and made
his escape on the Bth, while the guards
were not looking his way. Dalton creat

An Elderly Lady Thrown From Her Cart and
Cut and Bruited
A runaway team attached to a light
road wagon created great excitement
at the corner of Third and Spring streets
at about 2 oclock yesterday afternoon
1 hey were standing in front of Wells-
Fargo's express office, on Third street
when they became frightened and
dashed off up Third to Spring. A Trac

The runaway team attempted to pass
between the car and the cart Their
vehicle struck the cart and Mrs Harri

and fell upon her head. The horses tore
themselves loose from the wagon and
left it stuck between the car and Mrs.

Officer Harris took the animals to the
station and from there to a livery stable
where they were put up. the owner not

Mrs. Harrison was carried into Ebin

Yon Ahrenholdt Sentenced
Charles J. yon Ahrenholdt, the baron
in hard luck, appeared before Justice
Morrison yesterday afternoon and
Pleaded guilty to the charge of carrying

a plea, for a light sentence and said that

Should He Not Declare Himself
on Silver ?
They Think He Is Justified in Maintaining
Discreet Silence
It Will Be Sufficient Time When He Has Se
cured the Nomination—Hervey Lindley
Says, "Ask Hanna"
In view of the uncertainty of Mr. Mc-
Kinley's position on the silver question
a Herald reporter yesterday put the fol
lowing question to a dozen or so promi
nent Republicans of this city:
"Conceding that tho financial question
is one of paramount importance to the
business and general Interests of this
country, should not Mr. McKinley of
Ohio declare himself on the free coinage
of silver question?"
Hon. S. O. Houghton—The conven
tion should settle the financial ques
tion, and if McKinley accepts
their platform that will be suf
ficient declaration on his part. I
have no hesitation In saying that I am
personally In favor of liberal coinage of
silver at least. I think silver should
furnish the bulk of our money for do
mestic exchange. I have no Idea what
Mr. McKinley's views are, and I do not
know any one who does know.
Mayor Rader —Yes, I certainly think
ho should declare himself. The party
will, however, of course declare them
selves at the convention on this question,
and McKinley, as any other candidate,
if he gets the nomination, will have to
conform himself with that platform.
H. T. Gage—l think it would be a piece
of effrontery for me to dictate to tbe
candidate for so high an office what he
should do in this matter. My own views
may be very distinct, but that is another
Hon. R.N. Bulla—lf Mr. McKinley has
definite ideas on the subject, as 1 sup
pose he has, and wants to be bound by
that definite opinion, I suppose he ought
tn declare himself. On the other hand,
if he is willing to take the expression of
the party feeling at the national con
vention and stand upon that, he has
every right to remain silent.
James Slausorn—The question is too
categorical and the answer depends up
on too many circumstances.
Hervey T.indley shook his head, and
with his charming smile, said—Excuse
me. I am not running Mr. McKinley's
campaign. I should suggest that you
refer the question to the thoughtful
consideration of Mr. Mark Hanna.
T. H. Brotherton, president nf the
Citizens' bank—l should thing Mr. Mc-
Kinley has already sufficiently declared
himself on numerous occasions, espe
cially during his campaign for governor
of Ohio, and I believe he is in favor of
sound money. He will not stand upon
the California platform.
J. H. Braly, president of the Southern
California Savings bank —I don't think
he ought. He should he free and un
trammeled by any expressed declara
tion, so that when he comes to preside
over the interests of the nation, and
after he has had the best possible oppor
tunities of looking over the whole finan
cial field, both of the T'nited States and
the world, he can better judge what is
best for this country. Personally I am
in favor of free silver.
Judge Charles Silent—No. I am willing
to trust McKinley upon tlie silver or
any other question without a declara
tion. I am favorable to silver, but not
in favor of free coinage. The Ohio prat
form, which was evidently inspired by
him. suits.
ICy-Mayor H. T. Hazard—l believe
that the party oupht to and will define
a clear and unequivocal position—no
Ktracirlle. McKinley ousht to know
what that platform Ik before he is nomi
nated. But I do not think he is called
upon to declare himself before he gets
the nomination.
A man in the street remarked: "He Is
very wise to keep his mouth shut. He
is after the presidency, The conven
tion will Kive him the nomination and
also edve him his platform."
Several prominent members of the A.
P. A. were approached, but in view of
the present division in their camp over
McKinley, politely declined to answer.
Intimating that it would not be politic
on their part to do so.

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of tlie 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
sickness are, not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millionsof families, and is
everywhere estcemerl so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy whicli promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
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,
anil the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, hut if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere. Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction.
