BEAUTH DOCTOR'S FAMILY This Time Frank Willard Appears Wm l A DIVORCE SOU Mrs. Clyman's Pugnacity Dc velops in Court OPPONENT'S EYE BRUISED Piielan and Avery Are Satisfied With the State's Prison So Tbat Tbey Will Be Cured ol the Terri ble "Cope" Habit Joe Quald, an Irish Workman, Claimed to be Aching for a Scrap—Opinion on Mechanic's Liens by Judge Shaw—Notes. Mrs. Sarah Clyman, who swore to a complaint against William Mollen and charged him with having struck her, made her appearance In the township court yesterday, to make proof of her allegations. The Herald, ln telling of the trouble between this lady fair and the French man out at Belvldere, spoke of her as belonging to that peculiar type of ad vanced womanhood that is able to look out for themselves, even to the point of physical force. Mrs. Clyman repudi ated the Insinuation with Indignation. It developed yesterday, however, that the lady does not trot- in the shy and bashful class, but, as before indicated, can give a great hulking man all the entertainment he need desire with her fists. The trouble arose when Mollen teth ered his horse on some land by permis sion of the owner. Mrs. Clyman ap peared on the scene and turned the horse loose, as appeared from the evi dence, and oalled Mollen a *— — ■ — to boot. As a matter of fact, Mollen ls nothing of the kind, but simply a big and rather athletic Frenchman. When he stood the abuse all right the Irate lady sailed in with her fists and played a tattoo on Mollen's face. He put up his hands to guard off the blows, but there was no evidence to show he struck back. True, Mrs. Clyman said he did, and brought a dress into court with one sleeve torn off to prove his brutality. But Mollen's bruised eye spoke vol umes for him, and Mrs. Rousslnet, a witness and the lady who owns the land where the horse was tethered with her permission, gave testimony that told against the plaintiff's story. It waj in evidence, too, that on a previous oc casion Mrs. Clyman tried to prod a man against whom she had some petty spite, In the stomach with a pitchfork, and altogether she was proven to be a warm member. If anything more were need ed to prove this it occurred when Justice Young stated, in dismissing the case, that the complainant had been the ag gressor, and that no evidence had been produced to show her allegations to be founded In fact. Mrs. Clyman left the court room and wilted for Mrs. Rousslnet to "do her up" as she passed out. The latter named lady was afraid to leave the court room and Attorney Orflla appealed to the court for the protection of the witness. Constable Yonkln went outside and read the riot act to the pugnaciously Inclined woman, and she then went oft with her husband. OLD MEMORIES STIRRED. Frank Wlllard's Children Awarded to the Mother. The suit of Ellen M. Willard against Frank A. Willard was up In department six again yesterday before Judge Mc- Kinley. This time the ease was called with re gard to the matter of the custody of the children. There is a divorce suit pend ing, and some interest is given to the case by the fact that Frank Willard ls one of the Willard family that came to grief about a year ago in the United States district court. Old man Willard, the present defen dant, Frank, and his brother and his wife were all gathered into Uncle Sam's legal net by Inspector Flint, on the charge of misusing the United States mails. The little lady in the case was a quite attractive brunette, and she, with the co-operation and assistance of her hus band, and the other defendants In a minor degree, contrived to hit upon a most lucrative scheme. The mere fact of conceiving the idea labeled her as a brainy little woman. She invented a decoction, the application of which made women have a beautiful, roseate com plexion. Agencies were established throughout the southern country, and each agent, to qualify as such, had to buy so much stock. The representations made easily brought the scheme within the definition of a swindling device, and the Willards, with tho exception of Frank, rusticated for some months in Jail. But things were made easy for them, and they were sent to Santa Bar bara, where they might be more com fortable. Another charge against them, too, was not pressed upon their release from confinement. Now the brother, Frank, who Is Jus tice of the peace at Rosedale, is in the deep waters of matrimonial disturbance. He married a young lady in the east, of good family, and who rejoices in having a father with lots of cash. Whether a sufficiency of the cash did not <Ji-|ft Frank's way or not is uncertain, but at any rate his wife separated from him, and asked, and was yesterday awarded the custody of the children. As offspring of the marriage, there are Bessie, aged 11 years; George, aged 9; Queena, aged 7, and Fay, aged 2, and It is anticipated that the family will receive another ad dition. Until that event takes place It is likely that the divorce case will not come for trial. THET MADE CONFESSION And Go For One Year to States Prison at Folsom ■William Phelan and William Avery are the two young fellows who, of their own accord, stated that they had done a small turn at burglary, and of their own volition showed the officers where the plunder was secreted. At the time both young fellows were serving a sentence, on another matter. In the chalngang and they then stated that they had a desire to see how things w ere carried on Inside the state peniten tiary and for that reason preferred the additional, charge against themselves. When they were arraigned and plead ed guilty before Judge Smith yesterday another reason for their desiring to go to the state's prison developed. They LOS ANGELES HERALD* SUNDAY dtfOROTNG, SEPTEMBER 27, ISM. are both "dope fiends" and are anxious to be cured of the habit. One of them at least la not as Innocent of the peni tentiary as he would have had the offi cers believe, for he has already done time. According to their own confession they burglarized the house about 3 ociock ln the morning so the crime was burglary ln the first degree. Judge Smith, how ever, took Into consideration the fact that they themselves had made con fession and had recovered the stolen goods, and sentenced them to only one year's Imprisonment ln the state's prison at Folsom. ON MECHANIC'S LIENS An Opinion by Judge Shaw Affecting Three Distinct Suits An opinion handed down yesterday by Judge Shaw In the suit of Patten, et al. vs. Lawrence et al.. Is of Interest to contractors and workmen generally. The action was one to foreclose a Hen for materials furnished to a contractor to be used in the erection of a dwelling house, and one point ln the case Involved the construction of a clause of section 1184, C. C. P., and another the interpre tation of a clause of 11S7. The clause of 1181 is as follows: "No payment made prior to the time when the same ls due under the terms and conditions of the contract, shall ba valid for the purpose of defeating, diminishing or discharging any lien in favor of any person, except the con tractor, but as to such Hens, such pay ment shall be deemed as if not made, and shall be applicable lo such liens." By the terms of the contract a pay ment of $375 was to be made when the work required by the contract should be completed and accepted. The con tract required the construction of all the work on the building, except the painting, let to another party. In order to do the painting properly It was neces sary that the finishing hardware should be fitted and then removed until the painting was finished. To complete the building entirely it would then be neces sary to replace this hardware. The con tractor fitted the hardware and removed it, and then called on the architect for a certificate of completion. The final touching up of the plastering and the repairing- of a small space left unplast ered was also undone. Tho final plac ing of the hardware and the completion of the plastering undone would not re quire but little over one day's work, and would not cost 55. With the build ing in this condition the architect is sued the final certificate stating that there was $441.80 due the contractor, deducting $133.80 for hardware and screens and releasing the contractor from further performance except at his option. This seems to mave been hone under the Impression that the finishing hard ware and screens had not been furnished, but in fact It was furnished and lacked ?"'y the final placing as stated. Upon this both architect and owner accepted the building as complete and the owner paid the contractor the sum of $440. The contractor afterward replaced the hardware and finished the plastering so as to make the work complete. It was insisted this payment was made prior m tlme wnen the same was done. Two other cases—Madera Flume Co. ys. Lawrence and Kerekhoff et al. vs. Lawrence—were consolidated with this one upon trial and tho aggregato amount of Hens foreclosed were $1141.82. The amount of the contract price ap plicable to the payment of these liens was $902, being the final payment of $,6i and $135 unpaid on, the completion payment. Findings were filed for plaintiffs, for Patten et al. for $651.57 and $75 attor neys' fees and costs; Madera Flume Co., $324.60 and $50 attorneys' fees; Kerek hoff Co., $165.65 and $40 attorneys' fees The sum of $902 due from Lawrence to be divided pro rata among the above claim ants. Foreclosure ordered. DISTURBED HIS PEACH An Irishman Who Is Aohlng for a Scrap William Best lives down by the river and says he ls ln fear of one Joe Quaid, an Irishman, who yesterday disturbed his peace. Both men live close together and have not had the friendlest feeling toward one another, for they have not Bpoken "as they pass by." Yesterday morning Best got up early to go to his work at Pasadena. As hs went down the road he heard someone coming behind and turning his head saw Quaid pick up a rock and at the same time cuss him with a fluency that betrayed his intimate acquaintance with the vocabulary of blasphemous oaths. Just then the car came along and in the presence of the other people Quaid did not follow out his evident intention. Best, however, was not pre pared to take further chances and swore to a complaint in the distlct attorney's office. A DEVELOPMENT SCHEME. A Company's Articles Cover a Wide Field of Possibilities.
