WRIT DENIED TO THE TRIO
Now in Jail Charged With Forgery fl mmm supervisor Gives Testimony in the Times* Mirror Libel Suit THE MISFIT OF A JUSTICE A Military Delinquent Is Brought Before tbe Commissioner More Grist Being Thrown Into the Ever < rinding Divorce Mill The (in Consumers' Association ol This City Obtain a Temp orary Restraining Order— Lsgal Opposition to Opening Wall Street—General Court Notes A. Mi Carpenter. Frank Hamm and George Mitchell, the trio who are await ing their trial for forgery, attempted to make their escape yesterday by the ever popular habeas corpus route. The defendants' counsel raised some knotty points of law, but after looking over the authorities Judge Smith denied the application for a writ and ordered the defendants remanded. The three delinquents are charged with having passed llctltlous due bills, Which purported to be for labor per formed on the Newell and Qamewell building. The application for release was based on the contention that the fictitious instrument was in itself genu ine, and only the endorsement false, and that the instrument was in reality anon fergable one. The coort in ruling on the matter ruled that the point really at Issue, apart from certain rablldiuary points of little or na Importance, was whether In actual fact the paper known as a due bill was a forg abjfl instrument or not. Upon this point of law extracts from the authorities and also ;i decision by the supreme court of this state, In the case of George Monroe who. rather curiously, was tried in de partment one. One of the modifications of the defini tion of forgery brought about by the broadening of judicial proceedings was that a forged instrument was a writing tending to injure another. The court In its analysis of thf characteristics of the due bills in question, held that they fell perfectly within the rule laid down by the supreme court. The contention of counsel that the crime committed, if any, had been that of obtaining money under false pretences brought the case mure thoroughly within the rule. By this decision of Judge Smith the forlorn hope of the defendants of escap ing from the meshes of the law on tech nicalities of law must be abandoned and the case be tried on Its merits. The rimes Libel Suit Mrs. Mary Brady occupied the witness The Story of Dr. Shores' Success True medical skill and experience tell the grand old story of Dr. Shores' success. Dr. Shores tells you what ails you, and cures you, and has only one price for the millionaire and the laboring man— ss per month, all medicines free. Doctors who have investigated will tell you Dr. Shores' treatment for catirrh is the best known to modern medical science. Climatic conditions materially affect the action of drugs on the human system. Dr. Shores has carefully studied our 'climate, and applies this knowledge in the treatment of his thousands of patients. That is why he cures men, women and children who have vainly spent thousands on other doctors here and in Europe. If you have catarrh, or any chronic disease, if your kidneys or liver are not working normally, a common complaint in this climate, come to Dr. Shores and he will cure you. Read the testimony of home people, and they will tell you Dr. Shores' treatment cures. SUFFERED FOR 18 YEARS Mrs. Lizzie Qeldert Grateful to Dr. Shores for Her Restored Health n.M"X e ?L , f re W rd PPr, r - Shores' treatment as simply wonderful," said Mrs. Lizzie oeidert, the fashionable dressmaker, at 725 South Broadway, "i suffered with catarrh or trie head and throat for eighteen years, and suffered dreadfully. In a few weeks' treatment under Dr. Shores I feel like a new woman. I could not have believed it possible that he could have made such a change in my condition in so short a time. Consultation in Person or by Letter Free stand In Judge York's department yes terday and was subjected to cross exam ination regarding the matters the publi cation of which so lacerated her feelings that only a $30,000 salve will heal the wounds. J. H. Woolman followed the plaintiff upon the stand and as It was understood that he was the supervisor alleged by the Times' San Diego correspondent to have exceptionally kindly feelings to ward the "little grass widow," his testi mony was unusually Interesting. Being asked by counsel to tell about his dealings with the plaintiff, witness staled that he hud known her as a neighbor for some time and In 1892 she came to him and said that she was quite destitute. She didn't want charity in any form but Just a chance to work. Through his Intervention she was sent as nurse to the poor farm, but owing to the attention she was compelled to be stow on her younp children she failed to satisfy the superintendent and he dis charged her. Then he brought her case before the board of supervisors and three children were sent from the day nursery to Mrs. Brady, and she was al lowed $10 per month for each child. At the day nursery the county had to pay $12.50 for each child. Mr. Woolman failed to remember how it was that one of Mrs. Brady's own chil dren was also placed on the pay roll, but from his statement hIS Interest In the case \ve\\ one simply of good nature and philanthropy. J. K. Buck at the time referred to was chairman of the board of supervisors, and his testimony was corroborative of that given by the previous witness. Harry Chandler, superintendent of circulation with the Times-Mirror com pany, was put upon the stand presuma bly for the purpose of showing how the libelous article had been spread broad <ast through San Diego county. The eye of the counsel for the prosecution gleamed when he told the witness to turn to his books and state to the Jury the circulation of the Times upon Jan uary !l, 1803, In San Diego county. The witness turned up the record and stated that just thirty copies of the Times sat isfied the gnawing demand for Dos An geles news In San Diego county upon the day In question. Upon the some date the total circulation In and out of the state was 11,200 copies. Counsel's eyes drooped at this show ing. At first glance it seemed as if plain tiff's feelings had been rather easily damaged when thirty copleß of the al leged article in one entire county could make a $30,000 wreck. The witness was retired, but Junior counsel for the prose cution seized the circulation books and began to con the pages. It may have been that those thirty copies of the Times originally had been entered up as 3000. Finally the books were resumed and other witnesses followed In testifying to certain particulars in the main case. As a whole this particular libel suit Is pre-eminently dull. The evidence large ly is of tho dry as dust order and the monotony of routine is only relieved by counsel "sparring for points." New Suits Frank Vail vs. W. J.

No pecuniary damages, it Is claimed, would be an adequate remedy for the loss of its machinery, fixtures, etc., and would amount to absolutely destroying plaintiff's business, which is valued at $100,000. The plaintiff has no speedy remedy and has already been damaged in the »urn of $25,000, and therefore It Is aßked that, the defendant be restrained by an Injunction from removing or in juring any uf the fixtures placed upon the premises of any person whomsoever.

Trultt of Downey town- Bhip distinguished himself a short time ago by sentencing one William McKln ney to 180 days for stealing six apricots from an orchard. The defendant was charged with petit larceny and the Justice stated that he was convinced that this was not Mc- Klnney's first offense, and consequently lie gave him a month in jail for each and t)V»<*y apricot stolen. The case came before Judge Smith yes terday on appeal, and as the demurrer to the complaint, In which It was alleged the crime charged did not constitute a public offence, was confessed, the court ordered the defendant discharged from custody. A Forged Order William H, Calne, a colored man who for some time was In the service of Uucle Sam, was brought before Commission er Van Dyke yesterday. The charge preferred against the de fendant is that while stationed at Foil Bayard, with Co. F.

CLEAR SPARKLING WATER A Remarkable Discovery Recently Made Near El Monte J. 5. KMilan Develops Three Hundred and I ift y Miners' Inches Near the San Gabriel River One of the most remarkable and un expected discoveries of water has re cently been made in the San Gabriel valley about two miles from El Monte. J. S. Killian. the owner of some four hundred acres of land, desired to raise alfalfa over the greater portion of It and this could only be done by Irrigation. A spot was selected about a quarter of a mile from the west bank of the San Ga briel river, on a direct line between the mouth of the San Gabriel canyon and the point where the river passes through the Puente hills. Here he sank a twelve inch well and at a depth of 105 feet struck an immense body of water, much to the astonishment of his neighbors.The water rose in the well to within forty feet of the surface. Mr. Kiilian at once sank three other wells in a line, whose depths vary from 125 to 165 feet. Two of these Wells he combined and, placing a No. 5 rotary pump twenty feet below the surface, was gratified to find he could raise a continual How of 150 miners' inches of water. No. 4 rotary pumps were at once placed in the other two wells and a continuous flow (jf 100 miners' inches of water ob tained from each. The water which is obtained from a hitherto unknown un derflow of the river is brought to the surface clear, cold and sparkling, and runs down a ditch, a full 350 miners' in ches. Notwithstanding the Immense volume of water continually pumped out, the water in the wells is never reduced and remains continually at forty feet below the surface, showing that the underflow is a very large one. People are visiting the spot from all parts of the valley to Investigate the wells, and there is a probability that other wells will be sunk on the line of the underflow. The present pumps are run by a 60 --horse-power engine, for ffhlch oil is used as fuel. About two years ago Mr. Killian sank a well some distance below the present place and obtained 60 inches of water. This not being sufficient, he became con vinced that water in much larger quan tity could be obtained on the present spot and, contrary to the advice of his neigh bors, commenced to sink the wells. The result has astonished everyone and the supply of water cannot be determined. It is learned that Mr. Killian intends sinking new wells and putting in a 500 --horse-power engine with the object of supplying Los Angeles with water, how ever as that may be, only the future will show. One thing Is now certain, a large and apparently exhaustless supply of water has been discovered in a locality heretofore dry as a bone. Prof. Cates, Examiner Prof. E. E. Cates, principal of the Sand street school, on Thursday and Friday, will conduct the entrance ex amination for the Massachusetts Insti tute of Technology.
