A Kind Friend Offers Hera
The Seibert Insolvency Case Being
Straightened Out—The Eveling
Divorce—Court Notes
It was a rather striking and excep
tional scene in Judge Allen's court yes
terday morning, when further investi
gation was made into the case of Kit
tie Ransom, the Pasadena girl whose
mother gave her such a shady character,
and its linale was also unusual, although
eminently seatisfaetory.
Miss Kittie loomed up in court as
debonnair as ever, her mariner being
tinged with a defiant, bravado. But she
was alone, and no one save a girl com
panion spoke a good word for her, while
several Pasadena witnesses testified in
favor of the mother.
Assistant District Attorney Williams
first put upon the witness stand Charles
H. Arthur.the man whom Kittie charged
her mother with living in adultery with.
He stated that he is a blacksmith, sin
gle, and with four children. For about
a year he had intimately known Mrs.
Ransom, but denied anything wrong in
the acquaintance that had existed. He
conceded, however, that most of his idle
time was spent in the society of Mrs
Ransom, his children being grown up
and away from him. He knew her as
a "noble, pure, industrious woman,
struggling to fight the poverty staring
her in the face," and lie made her house
his home and she had done the mending
and the many trifling services of which
the benighted single man stands in need.
The witness testified to having heard
Kittle use most abusive language to her
mother when the latter would be up
braiding her for her behavior.
"She used the most abusive language
I ever heard man or woman use." said
Mr. Arthur, "and I know the girl con
traded disease."
"How do you know that?" inquired the
prosecuting attorney.
"Because her mother told me so," was
the answer.
"Oh, that doesn't cut any figure," in
terrupt, d the court, "if her mother told
jrou so."
"Well., she f.ld me herself." and wit- i
ntss thus amended his answer.
"What time did a fourteen-year-old
girl tell you such a thing?" queried Judge
Allen In apparent astonishment.
"She told me herself." repeated wit
ness, adding, "We were quite intimate
"I should think so," murmured Judge
Allen, and witness resumed his narra
"She was going with a gentleman
named Mr. Wright, and her mother was
perfectly willing she should do so, and
so was I, but she sought other company
We were perfectly willing for her to go
with him anywhere, but she went off
with others."
Mrs. James Ayers testified to living
close to the Ransoms and heard the
girl use bad language in conversing with
her mother.
Frank Wright, a night watchman at
Pasadena, and presumably the man
with whom Mrs. Ransom and Mr. Ar
thur were willing that Kittie should
keep company, testified to Mrs. Ran
som's good reputation. He visited the
house and had seen Arthur there, but
knew of no improper relations between
Then the one solitary witness spoke up
a good word for Kittie but as> Emma
Ecroyd Is alleged to have been Kittle.*
boon companion ln her escapades her
words did not go for much. She gave
her age as 15 years and said she was
often at the Ransom house. One night
she was stopping with Kittie, and Mr
Arthur and Mrs. Ransom came *ome
from Los Angeles about 11:30. Mr. Ar
thur was slightly intoxicated, and he
and Mrs. Ransom sat around "raising
Cain" until about 3 oclock in the morn
ing. He wanted Kittie and witness put
out in order that he could go to bed.
Judge Allen interfered at this point
and paid he believed it to be wrong to
send any girl to Whittier that is not
wholly bad. He had postponed the hear
ing in this case in ordej; that the charge
alleged by the girl might be investigat
ed, and he believed her story false. It
had been shown that she was incorrigi
ble and bad. The court addressed itself
to Kittle, gave some word? of advice and
ended with the suggestive words:
"Young lady, you've taken the road that
will lead you to the potter's field in9ide
of five years."
The order of commitment to Whittier
was made ar.d then Kittie broke down
and cried. At that moment a lady who
gave her name as Mrs. Gibbs stepped
forward and ftated that if the court
would permit it she stood prepared to
give the girl a home, in preference to
having her sent to Whittier.
Mrs. Gibbs stated that she followed
the business of dressmaking ar.d resided
with her husband who is a painter anr.
paper hanger, on Beaudry avenue. She
wore the purity emblem of the W. C. T.
U., ar.d upon taking the stand stated
that if Kittie would simply promise to be
a good girl she would take her and treat
her as her own. Mrs. Gibbs got a few
scorching remarks in anent the Whittier
reform school before being forestalled
by the court. Turning to Kittie Mrs.
Gibbs in kindly accents told her how
happy she would try to make her if she
would on her part just be a good and
obedient girl. She furthermore told her
how she hated to see any girl sent to
Whittier and that she didn't believe al!
that had been paid about her.
Kittie dried her eyes and gave the re
quired promise to her well intentions!
guardian and Judge Allen ordered the
commitment suspended for thirty days
At the expiration of that time Mrs.
Glbbs will report to the court and if Kil
tie's behavior has been satisfctory that
order will be rescinded.

A Battery Case Springing Erom the
Leonis Trouble
A couple of weeks ago Deputy Consta
ble Hughes of Ballona township was
fined $50 by Justice Barclay for a bat
tery upon Harvey Branscomb, the Cal
aliasas tough, who has been either di
rectly or indirectly involved in almost
every broil that has taken place in his
neighborhood, where everybody appears
to go "heeled" and aching for a scrap.
Yesterday on the appeal of the case.
Judge Smith said Hughes did exactly
the proper thing, and in so doing was
probably the means of preventing a
Behind the actual war between Brans
comb and Juan Melendez, in which
Hughes came to grief, and, as Indicated
got $50 the worst of it, there lies a little
scrap of a story which forms a part of
the infinitely larger and more import
ant story of the vicissitudes of the Le
onis estate.
Juan Melendez is the son of old Espi
ritu Leonis, widow of Miguel Leonis,
one of the brothers whose fortune has
been the cause of so much wrestling,
both in and out of court. When a home
stead was set out of the general estate
for the old lady, it was set out on what
is either government or railroad land,
the exact status of It having yet to be
determined by the United States gov
ernment. Just above this tract of land
Branscomb has for some years held 160
At tbe time the homestead was set
out for the Senora Leonis, one Antunez
was and had been in possession of the
Calabasas store and saloon, located at
the tract, and had been paying rent to
the Leonis estate. But as soon as the
homestead matter was settled he refused
to pay any further rent on the ground
that It was government land. His hold
ing comprised about 61 acres, and a
suit ln ejectment was brought against
him by the Senora Leonis, and finally
he was thrown out. Then the old lady
took possession, and her son, Juan Me
lendez, has lived with her.
But the fates were against the old Se
nora. Old and worn, •illiterate, and not
speaking English, she possessed the sim
ple virtues of the old-time Spanish race,
and could not cope with the scheming
Americano. Worth about $1,000,000 not
ao very long ago, she la now not worth a
dollar, albeit if justice la not altogether
a farce, she will yet recover tbe major
part of her property from those who
.■xplolted It for their own benefit. Lau
rent Etchepare was her confidential
agent, and with htm she became involved
in trouble, and ln a large measure It Is
him she blames for all the disaster that
has overtaken her fortunes. When the
friction first developed between the old
!ady and Etchepare the latter, It Is
claimed, prompted Antunez to go and
squat on the land from which he had
legally been ejected. He did so, and
rented some eight or ten acre* of It to
Branscomb. Juan Melendez, as repre
senting his mother, ordered Branscomb
not to plow or make use of the land, as
Antunez had no right to rent the land
or use it himself. Aa a matter of fact.
Branscomb did not need any such Infor
mation, for, his 160 acre tract adjoin
ing that of the Senora Leonls, he knew
the exact stateus of the whole case.
He just chose to play his part in the
little game to the end. He plowed the
land and sowed it to barley. A short
time ago Melendez went into the field
with ihs team to cut it. True, he hadn't
planted the grain, but It was on ys
mother's land, and the man who had
planted it had no right to do so. The
field of grain was just adjacent to the
place where Antunez had lived, and
where Melendez had been living since
the time when Antunez was ejected.
Branscomb got wind of what was beins
done, and came to Melendez and pro
ceeded to oarry things with a high hand.
He cursed and swore around and 'threat
ened the horses standing by wltl^a piece
of gas pipe with which he had armed
himself. Deputy Constable Hughes.who
had witnessed a part of the fracas from
the house of Melendez, where he had
ensconced himself, ran out and took the
weapon from Branscomb and called a
halt to the Impending hostilities. In
order to get revenge, Branscomb swore
to a complaint charging Hughes with
battery, and Justice Barclay inflicted a
fine of $50. From this judgment Hughes
appealed, and yesterday Judge Smith
granted a new trial of the case in his
department, on the ground that the
judgment was contrary to the evidence,
and that a great deal of illegal and Ir
relevant testimony had been admitted
ln the trial court.
Judge Shaw Straightens the Matter
in an Opinion
In the matter of the assignment of B.
F. Seibert, an opinion waa rendered yes
terday by Judge Shaw. The account
submitted is settled and filed except as
follows: (1) That the assignees be al
lowed $3018.32 as commissions, instead of
$4537.63 as charged. (2) That there be
charged against the assignees for Inter
est on balances of cash kept by them the
sum of $2217.39, making a total of inter
est charged against them of $3000, in
stead of $782.61 as charged in said ac
It Is also ordered that the assignees
be allowed $500 on account of the serv
ices of Messrs. Brosseau & Montgomery,
as attorneys, and $1000 as balance
dije for services and advice of
Victor Montgomery as attorney
for the assignee from 1882 to the
filing of the account. It Is further order
ed that the assignees proceed to distrib
ute pro rata among the creditors the
balance remaining in their hands, and;
that they pay into court $698.06 remain-!
ing uncalled for from former dividend*
declared by them
The Evelingra Agree to Disagree and
Divide the Property
Fred Eveling waa granted a decree
yesterday by Judge Smith, divorcing
him from Josephine Eveling, on the
ground of cruelty. The husband is to
pay over $260 aa the wife's share of the
community property, and the 2 year old
girl will by consent live with the father.
The difficulty in the Eveling household
was in its lnciplency but rapidly devel
oped into a case where the hot tempered
wife tired of the slow and probably the
somewhat stubborn methods ot her
mate, who is a boiler maker ln the em
ploy of the Southern Pacific company.
Judge Allen granted a decree to Mary
M. Collett, severing the marital tie be
tween her and C. H. Collett, on th*
ground of extreme cruelty.
Court Notes
Sarah J. Mosher filed her petition yes
terday in the superior court, asking for
letters of administration ln the case of
Ezra D. Mosher. The estate is valued
at $600.
I. J. Beals, who was charged with cru
elty to animals, was arrested by Con
stable Yonkln yesterday and brought
before Justice Young for arraignment.
The case for examination was set for
July 7th and the defendant permitted to
go free on his own recognizance.
In the suit of the National Bank of
California va Los Angeles Iron and
Steel company Judge Shaw yesterday
held that the account of the defendant
Putney be allowed except the item of
$650 for attorney's fees, which Is cut to
