THE KNOX CASE Curiously Contradictory Evidence A DEBT RISES IN JUDGMENT MISS MIZENER IS SUING THE BRADBURY ESTATE Charge of Embezzlement Against G. Lindenfeldt— Regarding the Work on the Baltimore The defense opened in the case of Mrs. Julia Knox, charged with perjury, yes terday, anA a somewhat different com plexion has been thrown upon the cir cumstances of the case, which have been in themselves sufficiently entangled. As a matter of fact ,Mrs. Knox cannot, on oath, say absolutely whether she signed or did not sign that note for $250, payable to Mrs. Driscoll, and drawn in the office of Attorney Pierce. But she Is very positive that if she did sign it, It was under a misconception, and she had no reason to sign a note for any such amount. iWhen the defendant testified In the township court that she had never sign ed the note, and repudiated it, she did so. so she testified, for several reasons. First, because she never owed Mrs. Driscoll more than $100, other than a few small amounts, which she had re paid, and there was, therefore, no sense In. having signed a note for the larger amount. Secondly, the occurrence which caused her to become indebted to Mr. Driscoll for $100 did not occur until March, 1595, while the note was dated in January, 1895. Thirdly, and lastly, Mrs. Knox felt fortified in the stand she took when she remembered that she had in her possession Attorney Pierces receipt for the $100 which she had re ceived from Mrs. Driscoll, and at once turned over to Mr. Pierce as counsel fees. These several facts were so firmly en graved on Mrs. Knox's mind that she felt perfectly certain in her repudiation of the $250 note. But the note is in evidence, and it is certain that either Mrs. Knox signed it or that her signature was forged. With regard to its being dated previous to the time when the $100 was paid over, At torney Pierce and Mrs. Driscoll both stated upon the witness stand that the note was antedated to the time in Jan uary when the debt of $150—making up the balance of the note —was contracted. But both of these witnesses testified practically to the contrary at the pre liminary examination, and, after the signing episode in Attorney Pierces of fice, several witnesses testified to con versations in which Mrs. Driscoll took part, and in which she claimed an in debtedness on the part of Mrs. Knox of only $100. On Christmas night of 1895, In the presence of Mrs. Knox, her husband and Miss Emma Hassfurther, after Mrs. Knox had spoken in a rather downcast manner regarding her troubles of the past year, Mrs. Driscoll remarked: "You are not in debt much, and the $100 note you owe me you need not worry over. I would not call for it at all if it was not for my son George." Then again, in April, 1896, the same people being present, and also Edward Sales ,the latter asked Mrs. Knox if she owned her place, and she replied: "I do not consider that I own it until It is paid for," and thereupon she turned to Mrs. Driscoll and inquired: "Have you destroyed that $100 note of mine?" and Mrs. Driscoll responded: "Yes, I've torn it up." With regard to the tearing proposi tion, and as explanatory of it, Mrs. Knox had paid $50 on the note and later having done various kinds of work for Mrs. Driscoll, the latter said they would cry quits and she would tear up the note. And so she did, apparently, for the note in evidence has been torn into bits and then pasted together. But it is a $250 note, not a $100 one. THE BALTIMORE HOTEL Judge York Rules Upon Points Im portant to Those About to Build 'An opinion handed down yesterday by Judge York in the. suit of W. H. Perry Lumber and Mill company vs. P. A. Garvie et al. touches upon several points of importance not only to con tractors, but to every one who contem plates building. The above suit arose out of difficulties and contentions in connection with the. erection of the Baltimore hotel, on Sixth and Olive streets, and the court holds that a stipulation in a contract for build ing a house to be used for hotel or lodg ing house purposes that the contractor Will pay $15 per day as liquidated dam ages for each day's delay In the con struction of ihe building is void because actual damage? in such cases can be readiiy ascertained. I hold that oral contracts modify the original plans in which the parties to the contract and the architect participated, and which were executed, were valid contracts and changed tho original con tract to the extent of the executed mod ifications. I further find that several delays in the work in question were caused by the owner to the damage of the contractor, and that the contractor used reasonable diligence in the prosecution of the work. The owner was. during the work, insist ent, and constantly urged greater prog ress in the work. For instance, the owner was to have the electric wiring done by independent contract; the plasterer could not proceed with the lathing until the wires were in, and about two weeks delay in the construc tion was caused thereby. The owner insisted that other work could be. done during the time of the delay in wiring for electricity, but the contractor would have been doing such work to a grea; disadvantage. I have noted fifteen in stances where the contractor claims that delay was caused by the owner, and many of them are substantiated by the evidence. The owner wasi however, exercising more than ordinary diligence to prevent these delays. All parties, including the architect, seem to have forgotten the terms of the contract, and as the work progressed changes were made and extra work was done without any attempt to comply with the methods provided for the same, as specified in the contract. The owner even now invokes the terms of the con tract, relating to extras, only where he thinks the charges for extras are unjust. The building waa completed on Febru ary 26, 1896. By the terms of the-contract betwen the owner and the contractors the contractors were to receive $24,000 for the construction of the building, of which sum $14,400 was paid in accord ance with the terms of the contract, and $9600 thereof and said $280, due for ex tras, are unpaid. Plaintiff and intervenor are entitled to judgment against Mackay & Young, as prayed for in their complaints, and for foreclosure of lien to the extent of the amount due from Oarvie. Attorney's fees will be allowed plain tiff in the decree of foreclosure against Mackay & Toung and Garvle to be fixed In the decree. Findings will be prepared in accord ance herewith. AN EMBEZZLEMENT CHARGE Is Preferred Against George Llnden f eldt by a German A complaint was sworn to In the town ship court on Monday, charging George Llndenfelt, who is with the firm of Pep per & Lindenfeldt, in the practice of the law, with offices in the Bullard block. The charge preferred wasembezzlement and was made by Christian Horn. It appears from the statement of the prosecuting witness, that he gave young Lindenfeldt $300 several months ago, with instructions to advance the money to any of his friends or clients who stood prepared to give a mortgage on unen cumbered real estate. Time passed along but Lindenfeldt made no report regard ing his disposition of the money. Final ly, Mr. Horn claims, he inquired about the matter, and the young man showed him a two-story residence, upon which he stated he had loaned the amount. Mr. Horn was not able to get a note or mortgage from the alleged borrower, and, becoming impatient, placed th matter In the hands of another attorney, who subsequently reported that Mr Lindenfeldt had neither note, mortgage nor money. Upon this representation, Horn wer.t to the office of the district attorney, who drew the complaint upon which a war rant was issued from Justice Young's court. In consequence of the indisposi tion of his wife, Lindenfeldt ha 9 not been at hi 9 office for a day or two, but yesterday afternoon the defendant hav ing heard of the charge preferred against him, surrendered himself in the township court and was released pend ing the examination on furnishing a bond for $1000. THE BRADBURY ESTATE Being Sued for 82500 by Miss Pearl Mizener Pearl Mizener, a young lady who was for a time stenographer and typewriter at the "Crocker," is trying to recover $2500 from the Bradbury estate. Some time ago she filed suit against Simona M. Bradbury, individually, and also a? trustee of the Bradbury estate, in con junction with John Bradbury and Ro sario Winston. Yesterday the suit came to trial before Judge Shaw and a jury, in department five. It appeared that on or about Sep tember 25th, 1894, the defendants were putting in some trees along the frontage of the sidewalk of the Bradbury man sion on Court street. The excavation? made for the reception of these trees served as a pitfall, it is alleged, for Mia? Mizener, for upon returning to her home on the night of October 4, she fell into one of the excavations and got such a severe bruising and shaking up that she was confined to her bed for ten daya. She was, she claims, compelled to en gage a nurse and, what with physician." fees ar.d drugs, ran up quite a large bill. Of necessity, too, she was absent from her business, which was yielding her $60 per month, and through such absence lost the position altogether. In these premises Miss Mizener that she be awarded $2500 as damages. New Suits Filed The matter of the application of the Grace Methodist Episcopal church—The petition of the church that it be permit ted to sell the property at the southwest erly corner of lot 23, block 4, of the San chez tract, situated on the rear of cer tain property on First street, and having no access to that street. Unless sold In connection with the property adjoining and with frontage on First street it Will have little value. The estate of Philip C. Stoll, deceased —Petition of Katie Stoll for probate of will. The estate is valued at $12,050. The estate of Lester A. Rowell, de ceased —Petition of Fred Rowell for let ters of administration. The estate is valued at $400. The Divorce Mill A decree was granted yesterday by Judge Clark to Mrs. C. B. Rowe, quite a handsome young lady of the Spanish type, divorcing her from T. R. Rowe, on the ground of desertion. The couple married only a year or two ago, and from the outset there was some unhappiness on account of the husband being given over to intemperance. His people are well to do at Mount Vernon, Indiana, and he lived on the money he received from home, but would not turn to and work. He never gave his wife a cent, and finally! did her the good turn of leaving her and returned to his folks in the east. A Heavy Foreclosure Judge Clark yesterday granted a de cree of foreclosure in the suit of H. G. Hubbard against the University Bank of Los Angeles to recover on a mortgage for $15,000. The property involved ie known as the Redick block, ar.d is situated on the southeast corner of First street and Broadway.

NORTON'S SUICIDE Reminiscences of Two Former Los Angeles Boys The suicide of Isaac Norton in San Francisco has created a good deal of interest in Los Angeles. Ike, as he was familiarly called, and his brother, Abe. are well known to most of the people here who have been residents of the city for ten years and more. They were born here, and their parents are still residents of Los Angeles. For the past seven or eight years the father has not been in business, owing to his advanc ing years. But for a great many years, more than thirty, he did business here. The last place where his store was lo cated was on Main street, just below where Court street connects. He was in the boot and shoe trade. Here is a very touching incident con nected with his son's death. Moses Nor ton is old. He lives with his aged Wife out on Ninth street. Ike and' Abe were the apple of their eye. Both had been filial sons and their parents thought the world of them. A great number of friends, working without consultation but with a common inspiration, have so managed things that neither of the old people have seen a newspaper since the first .announcement of Isaac's suicide. They have been informed of his death as being sudden, but from natural causes. They still mourn him as dead but not as a suicide or defaulter. The two brothers were born and raised here in Los Angeles. They went to school together, and since they grew up have been as inseparable. Away back in the early SO's Abe was deputy county clerk under old-Wiise Potts. Later Abe and Ike went into business in the mines up at Calico. They married two sisters, the daughters of Mr. Jackson of San Bernardino. Six or seven years ago they went to San Francisco. Abe was in the mint all the first Cleveland term of office, and probably is there again under Daggett When Welborn was made collector of internal revenue at San Francisco Isaa? was made cashier. As cashier he han dled money some days to the amount of $10,000. Anyone who knew Ike Norton, well would have gone on his bond fo sloo,ooo. He was considered perfectly honest. He was about 37 years old, and his de parture from the paths of rectitude is a severe shock to the theory of moral ists who claim that a man once he passes thirty does not often change his mora! habits, especially if they are good up to that time. Gambling has been the cause of Norton's downfall and death. HISTORICAL SOCIETY It Met Yesterday Noon in the Bullard Block A meeting was held by the Historical society yesterday noon in S. O. Hough ton's office in the Bullard block. The celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the nation's birthday was the subject under discussion, a detailed program for the event was decided upon and com mittees were appointed to work the mat ter up.

JUNE A BUSY MONTH WITH CHIEF CLERK JOHNSON OF THE R. M. S. Annual Baport — Recommendations for Change* Toward Getting Better Service There are no busier people about the federal building than J. M. Johnson, chief clerk of the railway mall service, and his assistant, J. W. Holland. As Is generally known. Uncle Sam celebrates his New Year's day, July Ist, as the fis cal year of the postoffice department ends June 30th of each year. This means a very busy month of June, for all em ployed In this great branch of the gov ernment, and whatever may be the opinions prevailing in the outside world as to "fat government positions," It Is evident that there are none in the post office department. "If any one doubts the democracy of the postofflce department," said Mr. Johnson yesterday, "he should glance in at the windows where the business ot the department is being done these days. He will certainly find all hands at work. Uncle Sam does not furnish ten men to do the banqueting and five to do thi work, as is the case with some corpora tions, but every one, from the top down, must roll up his sleeves and jump in, it the work of the department is properly attended to." The annual report, which includesrec ommendationg for such changes and ad ditional service as the advancement of the country may require, is specially oc cupying the attention of the chief clerk's office at present. "It is one thing to ask and another to get what is needed," said Mr. Johnson. "We have never been abe to persuade the department back there on the 'peaceful Potomac' that the west in many places is doubling its popula tion about twice in a decade, and that our asking, while it may appear to them to come from a locality that can never get enough, is only in keeping with the actual necessities which confront us." Among the recommendations 19 one asking that transfer clerks be appoint ed for the Southern California and Southern Pacific depot? of this city; clerks whose duty It will be to transfer the malls between trains, such transfer clerk to have a room where he cou'd open the pouches and distribute the mails which would reach him in pack ages, and in that way make quicker and closer connections between incoming and outgoing mail trains for local points in Southern California. A transfer clerk has also been asked for, to be stationed at the Southern Cali fornia railway depot at San Bernardino Recommendations have been made for railway postoffice service on the line be tween San Diego and Foster, in San Di ego county, and also on the National City and Otay railway line between Sar. Diego and Tia Juana, on the Mexican, border. The placing of mall service ar.d rail way postofflce service on the line of the electric company between Pasadena and Los Angeles is touched upon in the re port, but Mr. Johnson does not deal witn that matter extendedly. for the reason that Assistant Superintendent Lewis of the railway mail service of San Fran- clsco went over this line in its whole length, from Altadena to Santa Monica in April, 1896. when the road was first opened, and made a full report on the entire line, recommending that railway postofflce service be established there on. This report is on file with the de partment, and as soon as the additional service can be allowed fa thing con trolled by congressional appropriations) it will be established. The distribution of the Lof; Angeles city letter mails by the railway postal clerks on the line between Albuquerque. N. M., and this city, is another matte-. that has a prominent place in the report. It has been demonstrated that the dis tribution of city mail? by the clerks of the railway mail service is a success, and it now becomes necessary to per fect the system by which this is done, and to Increase the number of men upon whom this work devolves.
