A SCORCHING REVIEW Judge Smith Denounces Wholesale Perjury IK II CHEW UN GOW CASE -— I The Pasadena Mail-Box Rob' beries Now Uncovered ' FLSCHIA UNDER ARREST ; Medical Experts Give T ■siomony io tbe Shorb Trial Dr. Sanbora Araln Tries the Habeas Corpus Route The Improvements at Rubio Canyon Not Appreciated—New Water Com pany at Santa Monica —A Lem on Exchange atCahuir.ga. Chew Wing Gow, alias Big Jim, is to have a new trial—perhaps. I , Yesterday morning Judge Smith gave his decision upon the motion for a new trial, that had been argued on the night previous, and in the course of his re marks scathingly referred to the dellh- , crate and outrageous perjury that had been committed in the case. In touch- •' ing upon the testimony of Mis? Cordelia I Tillman upon the trial, which she re- j tractcd in her first affidavit, and later ! again made affidavit that the previous one had been obtained through thecoer- I cion nf Le Compte Davis of counsel for ' the defense, the court spoke strongly. , After a caref il examination of the affl- I davits and with the personal knowledge ' he had of Mr. Davis, he completely be lieved Mr. Davis' affidavit in which spe- i cific denial was made that any coercive measures had been adopted. "If I had been upon the Jury," said the court. "I would have acquitted the j ' defendant, for the case Is full of per- j Jury. I have no confidence in the testi mony, and that such a state of things i . should exist is dangerous—it's mon- \ strous. If a man's life is going to he | , taken away. It is necessary to know just i w hat one is doing. If men are to be con- , vioted on such testimony as we have , heard here today, it is a travesty upon , civilization, and being satisfied that the case is full of perjury, I cannot pro- ; ■ nounce sentence upon it." In the course of his remarks the court ■ referred to the testimony of several of the important witnesses. Hammond i Bell, he did not believe, was nearer 1n \ the place of shooting than two blocks i when Wong Chee came to grief. That | was what Bell told one witness, who did appear reputable and trustworthy. But ' - Nat. Lewis' arfcl the Chinese testimony the court repudiated, and tlie Haizlip*. ; for Uie defense, were also scored. In the face of these facts the court entatained the motion for a new trial, on | . the ground .that the evidence was In . sufficient to sustain the verdict. Now. the question arises.it Hammond- ; Bell, Miss Cordelia Tillman. Mr. and Mrs. Haizlip, Nat Lewis and the Chinese witnesses are tainted with perjury,what is there left of the case? Not one of these witnesses could go upon the wit i ness stand, In the event of a new trial. I without being impeached, i And still the point is in dispute as to \ I who killed Wong Chee. DR. SANBORN AGAIN. | Remanded Back to Highlands on Habens , , Corpus. Dr. F. C. Sanborn, who made his tech nical escape from Highlands a few days ago and was remanded back to the asy lum by Judge Shaw, again made his ap- ' , pearance yesterday in court. Messrs. Ladd & Hughes represented Dr. Sanborn, and another attempt was made In department four to have him i released from confinement on habeas corpus. Dr. Campbell: medical director i of the asyluum. and other witnesses were ' pri sent In court. t Upon the case being called Chief De puty District Attorney Holton moved that Inasmuch a-: the case was practical- , ly an appeal from the decision of Judse ■ Shaw, it bo transferred to his depart- ; ment. Messrs. Ladd & Hughes argued strongly against this being don?. Judge Van Dyke pointed out to the attorneys that there wa sonly one superior court in the county, and that ail the judges were co-ordinate: that tlie decision of : one was the decision of all. ar.d as a mat ter of propriety, the care ought to be j transferred to department five. Counsel for Dr. Sanborn protested, and then the court said that in any case he questioned whether the court had jurisdiction of the j ■ case. Reference made to the law books seemed to show that a clause of the con stitution applicable to the oas* at bar would remove it from the jurisdiction of ] the court. Mr. Ladd protested that the supreme court had in several decisions covered the point, and so the case wa adjourned for half an hour to give the enterprising attorney opportunity to gather authorities in his attempt to ! . knock out the constitution, Upon reconvening and after some ar gUmenit by counsel, Judge Van Dyke j held that the court had no jurisdiction of the case. When. Dr. Sanborn was committed to Highlands he was a confirmed morphine i liend. While be has fully recovered from ■ the effects of the habit, it is the opinion of Dr. Campbell that he has not regained j that mental equlqolse that will enable j him to refrain from like indulgence in * tbe event of his release. His case has received, perhaps, more than ordinary I attention, at the hands of the medical \ director, as that gentleman knew Dr. Sanborn before his commitment and also his father, who is a prominent medical j man in Vermont. THE POSTAL ROBBERIES. ' From the Pasadena Mail Boxes Traced to One John Fuschia. | A young fellow named John Fuschia has been an inmate of the county jail since November "oth with the charge 1 against him of having burglarised a store at Pnsadena. As a matter of fact, he was being held under that chargje Ito gi"e time to the sheriff's olilce tn I effect the capture of his partner, George, i Ray, a cook, who arrived from Kansas: : C Ity early in November. The men arc accused of having brok-t en npen and looted fnurtecn of the.street mall boxes at Pasadena or. the night of November 19th. Fuschia was captured the next day and has remained In Jail ever since. ar ,d it now appears that his partner has escaped. A complaint j cnarging Fuschia with the crime was LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNIXG, DECEMBER 4, ISSO, yesterday filed In the United States court. When the robberies of the mall boxes were reported Postofflce Inspector Flint conferred with Sheriff Burr, with the result that Under Sheriff Clement and Deputy Marsh were put upon the case. It was found that a plumbing shop had been broken into and some tools taken with which to break open the mail boxes. ' Fuschla i.ad worked in the shop, and ' roomed above it. but the night previous ■to the burglary he had removed away. . Following tln>c'.ue thus afforded it was found that Fuschia and Hay had been playing pool together and left the place nlio'ut \ oclock. At Al Barren's saloon on Fast First street Kay entered, leaving i his companion outside. He told Al. : Uarell. with whom he was acquainted, that he hud promised to take a girl to a dar.ee and had not money enough 'tn take her home. It was raining and he : asked Al. to hire a horse antl buggy for him at Lafferty's stable, close by. This was done and Hay said he would settle up when he drew his pay for working as conk at the Ei-triicht saloon. The horse and buggy were not return ' ed until 11:30 In the morning, the two men handing the vehicle over to the hostler and then hurrying quickly away. It Is | presumed that the men then proceeded to Ray's room, in a First street lodging I house, and then went through the letters that had been stolen, for portions of letter! were afterwards found about the room. Shortly after 8 oclock in the morning both men showed up at Barren's saloon, where Ray offered a check for $25. made payable to Rosa Crandall and drawn by B. Radd nf Pasadena. Barrell wanted to know who had endorsed the check and Fuschla remarked that it was some of Ray's handiwork. The check was refused, but was again offered to Mr. Goldsworthy, Requcna and Main streets, ! in payment of a suit of clothes. In quiries beincr made by telephone regard ing the check frightened Ray. and he disappeared, leaving the check behind. The men's movements wore traced step by step, and at 4:"0 In the afternoon Fuschia wa« arrested in the room of his partner while lying asleep. Ray, after I separating from Fuschia, succeeded !n j passing one check at a clothing house, receiving In return a suit of clothes and $10 In cash. "KID" THOMPSON'S LUCK Three Concurring Opinions of the Su preme Court The decision of the supreme court In the case of "Kid" Thompson came tn ! hand yesterday. The defendant was j convicted upon a charge of derailing a train with Intent to rob it. The appeal was taken from an order refusing a new j trial, and the only point made was that j the court erred in giving instructions. An appeal from the judgment was sepa rately taken, and there being no bill of exceptions to be settled, that appeal reached the supreme court first and was I long since decided. The act under which the prosecution I was had was an act adding one section to the penal code. "This act arose from the necessity of the times, and was ere- j ated for the purpose of stopping train j wrecking and punishing train wreckers." The evidence discloses without conflict that the- defendant did not board or at- j tempt to board the train till after It had i been wrecked. At that time the train was r.nt an operating one and could not have been wrecked. Therefore, when the defendant boarded the train with Intent to rnh it—lf he can be said to have done so—the act could not by any possi billty have contributed towards wreck- j ing the train. "Tliis." says the court, "would not ] necessarily have prevented the convic tion of the defendant. He could still have been convicted ar.d punished for throwing out a switch for the purpose <0, wrecking the train. The evidence was sufficient to sustain a conviction upon j that ground. But unfortunately the Jury was instructed b> tlie court as fol lows: "If the jury believes from the evi dence that the defendant, W. H. Thump- Bon, with Alva Johnson, at the county of Los Angeles. In the state of California, on the 15th day of February, 1894. Boßrrd ed an express car in a passenger train, on the Southern Pacific railroad at Ros- i coe Station, in said county, and by force 1 and violence, ur by putting in fear of i some injury to the person of the messen- , ger in charge of said car did rob, steal and carry away any money of any value j then in the custody or under the cure or in the control of said messenger, then i the jury should llnd the defendant j guilty." "Under the opinion rendered upon a former appeal boarding a train under such circumstances as the evidence in ' this case tends to prove could not con- I stitute tlie crime of train wrecking. The ' jury were told that they must convict the defendant of the offense of train ! wrecking if they found that he boarded ; an express car. which, without conflict, the evidence shows was rf-ot there, when , the evidence tends to show he boarded it. a part of a train which could have been operated or wrecked and by put ting In fear the messenger in charge of the car—not of the train-did rob or steal anything of value in the custody of the messenger. Other instructions of the court are, analyzed and held to haw been erron eous, and for these reasons the judg ment is reversed and a new trial or dered. The opinion is v rit'en by Justice Tem ple, concurred In by Henahaw and dis senter! from by McFarland. Chief Jus tice Beatty and Justice Harrison each shave written concurrent opinions. The former makes reference to the novel practice pursued In this case of brlngin up the ap peala from the judgment. and trom the order denying a now trial sep arately and upon sufficient records, "This else." says the chief justice, "fully illustrates the proposition that such practice is productive of delay and un necessary expense, and that it Is as in convenient as It is unusual. For the purpose of preventing auch proceedings i In ih> future I would suggest that this ' may easily be done by following the rii rectlon.s contained in Section 1248 of tlie renal ('ode. which Impose upon the court ty clerk the duly of printing and trans- ' nutting the record in criminal oases. Justice Harrison in his opinion .le- I votes it entirely to an examination cf the third instruction given In the lowe" ciurt relating to the throwing of th" 1 switch, etc. Justice Harrison draws it tentlon to the fact that the Instruction assumes that there was evidence that Johnson threw out the switch, and tli.it the defei'dant was merely present, aid.. ! ing. abetting and counseling him in the perpetration of the offence, wherea= 1 the only evidence in reference thereto i ! was that of Joht son himself, who te--- I tilled that the switch was thrown ou' : by the defendant. While this portion nf ' . the instruction could not. however have prejudiced the defendant, the latter pm-. , tion was clearly so, in presenting to the j jury the fact that Masters was killed : and thus directly charged him with horn - | loide, No charge nf this nature was ; made in Ihr Information. AT RIJBIO CANTON. \ The Improvements Not Regarded as a Blessing by Every One. ! The improvements being made by the board nf supervisors In the Ruhio dis trict are being chalteneged. Jacob rtu del, w ho la a vineyardlst In th" district. ■ has entered suit agalnsl the county of Los Angelei am! the board of super visor? as Individuals. He claims that he owns lands lying about three miles from Eaton canyon, which makes out of the San Gabriel mountains, ar.d that during the winter months the canyon delivers a lange vol ume of water, which, after watering the foothills and plains, flows by a natural channel over his lands. This waterway i is Incapable of carrying any additional water, and: as It is had to be controlled by plaintiff, i But he complains that the board of supervisors is constructing dams and canals to divert the outflow from Rubin canyon, which lies two miles west of Eaton canyon, into the waterway of the Eaton canyon flow, which, he al leges. Is Incapable of receiving it. i Mr. Rude] has a residence, winery, and I a large tract of land set out to vines, •all of which are impaired if the alleged Improvements are carried out. He asks that a rest raining order Itaue prohibiting the continuance of the works recently i Inaugurated. DR. SHORB'S TRIAL. ; Medical Testimony Only of a Technical Nature. The trial of Dr. A. S. Shorb, charged | with the murder of Mrs. Jennie Snyder, at East Los Angeles, is quite ghastly enough In its details to please the ab normal minded individual, but presents little that can be of general interest. Yesterday all the evidence put for ward was of a severely technical char acter. Dr. J. K. Carson. Dr. Salisbury. Dr. G. W. Lasher. Dr. A. G. Forget, and Dr. J. P. Stewart all testitled regarding the injuries Inflicted upon Mrs. Snyder and stated that the extraction of certain portions of the lower intestines was the actual cause of death. Each witness was subjected to an ex haustive cross-examination by Senator White, the general trend of the ques tions being to show tia.t the removal j of the intestines would have been ren dered necessary by the criminal opera | tion that might possibly have been pre viously performed, j Further expoit testimony will be glv- | en this morning, when the further hear- . Ing of the case Is continued. THE DIVORCE MILL, I More Grist Confirms to Pour Into the I Judicial Hoppers.

Upon complaint of J. B. Castrucclo, R. j L. Wright and C. T. Buchanan, the fnr- ! \ mer being at nne time a member nf the ; w 11-known firm of Mead. Wright &, j Co., wholesale butchers, and the latter formerly a deputy sheriff, were arrested , by Deputy Constable Mhgnemi and ar- I ralgned in the police court on a charge ! of disturbing the peace yesterday. Since the failure of the butchering j firm Wright has been running a saloon ! on North Main Btreet, Buchanan being ' employed as a bartender. A short time ago Wright's license was revoked by the I police commission, on account of a pro i test made by the business men In the I locality. Wright was inclined tn blame I Castrucclo for the matter, and. meeting i him on the street Wednesday evening, FDGF both he and Buchanan proceeded to up braid Castrucclo In the choicest lan guage. The latter avoided a difficulty, but re taliated by swearing to the complaint yesterday morning. Wright and Bu chanan were arraigned before Justice Morrison, pleaded not guilty, and de manded a jury trial, which was set for the llth inst. at 9:30 a. m. Bail of $50 each j was produced and the defendants re ; leased to await their hearing. I I TO ROOM RANDSBURG. | The Mining Camp Will Have a News paper. Randsbure. the new mining camp of promise, will soon have a paper of its | own. G. W. Glover, who for years was i editor, proprietor, etc.. of the South Pas i adenan. at South Pasadena, has. sent a newspaper plant to the new Eldorado. I and he went up there last evening to set lup shop and bnom the camp. Glover is t a good fellow, but he has some kind of j rollsi vis scruples against saying that I anyoody has died, though It is a fact he cannot gainsay. He alw ays says of such | unfortunates that they "passed from j earth life." It remains to lie seen how i such round-a-ibout allusions to a demise w ill Like in Randsburg, for if the owner of a claim tlnds it necessary to plunk a ' hole Into a would-be claim Jumper he will nnt want the newspaper account to : give any such promise of another life lo the victim of his bullet. AN ITALIAN DIFFICULTY. The U/se of a Rake as an Offensive Weapon Causes an Arrest. ! At 5 oclock last evening B. Speritosant, jan Italian, was landed in the city Jail by Deputy Constable Mugneml on a I warrant issued upon the complaint of Rocco Latronlca, charging the crime cf battery upnn his person. Wednesday evening the men enga-ted in a quarrel and Speritosant struck at Latronlca with a lake, the weapon fortunately missing his head, but striking his foot, one nf the teeth penetrating the great toe and Inflicting a painfull wound. Latronlca had his Injury dressed in the receiving hospital, and yesterday morning swore nut the complaint. The defendant was found at his home by the deputy constable, arrested and tak n to jail. He will be arraigned in court to day, ar.d will probably plead guilty. COULD NOT IDENTIFY HIM. Mike Veite Discharged From Suspicion of Attempted Robbery. Mike Veite, the young tramp run down by bloodhounds Wednesday night and locked up In the city jail on suspicion of being one of the men who attempted to hold up and rob Mrs. Fraley and daughter at the Walnut street briuge. was yesterday morning released irom custody and discharged. Mrs. Fraley and her daughter came to the station and were shown the prisoner, but were utterly unable to Identify him as one of their as.iilants, as at the time |of the occurrence it was quite dark and she could not swear whether the foot pads were white or black, only knowing j that they were young fellows, of dirty, disreputable appearance.
