IN HARD SHAPE Branscomb Slips the Law's Meshes Again COLON LOSES HIS LICENSE SCRAMBLE FOR THE ESTATE OF THOMAS YORBA Citizens Who Became Such for What There Is In It—A Lawyers' Tiff in the Majors Divorce Suit Harvey Branscombe, the Calabasas constable, was before Justice Young in the township yesterday for disturbing the peace of John M. Colon, a local store and saloon keeper. Both men have a rather unhappy fac ulty of getting mixed up in any trouble that may be raised, and happenings of that sort are every day occurrences at Calabasas. Colon charges that Branscomb and some of his friends came to his store and not only refused to pay the amount of his account, but tore the account from the book and made away with it. The storekeeper ran out and down the road to a neighbor's to get a pistol, and upon his return discovered that Branscomb had left the place, but that the till drawer had been broken open and about $14 taken out. Colon then came to the city and swore out a warrant for Brans comb's arrest. The trial yesterday resulted in at least proving Colon to be a fabricator, with out, however, showing Branscomb to be an angel of light. Upon the case being given to the jury a verdict of not guilty was returned. Colon was in hard luck yesterday in other respects, for the board of super visors revoked his saloon license. Hence forward he will, in a business way. have to confine his attention to groceries to the exclusion of whisky. THE YOBBA CASE An Incompetent's Estate of Which No Eeport Has Been Had for Tears Thomas Torba was the member of the numerous family of that name that be come demented in 1883, was pronounced incompetent by the superior court, and Philippe Yorba was appointed guardian of his person and estate. The latter consisted of about 2000 acres of land in Orange and Riverside coun ties that yielded an annual rental of about $350. On February 18th of last year the incompetent died and quite re cently his guardian made the only re port that he ever has made since-being appointed to the trust and asks that the report be confirmed and -he relieved. But others of the Yorba clan have inter posed a contest in department two, al leging, in brief, that the report is a cooked up account and largely the re sult of rough estimates on thepart of the guardian. The incompetent was boarded with the brother-in-law of his guardian. G. C. Peralta, for the by no means excessive sum of $10 per month. On this account, alone, however, there is now due $1549.21. During the intervening years since 1883 the estate hae yielded $8538, and of this $7250.70 has been paid out for a variety of things, traveling expenses of the guardian figuring with great regularity. The guardian went upon the witness stand yesterday afternoon and the fur ther hearing will be continued today. A NUMEROUS TBIBE Citizens Whq Become Such, for What There Is In It Karl F. Ditterich yesterday applied to Judge "Van Dyke to be admitted to all the rights and privileges of citizenship, but was turned down and refused for an exceptional reason in this city, although similar cases are numerous enough throughout the country. In answer to the inquiries of the court, Mr. Ditterich incidentally stated that he was returning to Germany, and de sired the protection that American citi zenship would give him. Judge Vat- Dyke very plainly intimated that he was not going to admit any man whose sole purpose appeared to be in seeing how far his country could be made to serve his purpose, without having any thought as to how he could serve his country. For all the court knew, Mr. Ditterich might be the means of emhroiling the United States in a difficulty with Germany, and the law regarding citizenship was never Intended to cover any such contingency. In New York there has for years been a regular grinding out of foreign citi zens, and particularly in the Central American republics United States citi zens are neither few nor far between. Their residence in this country was just long enough to gain the coveted paper-*, and their return to their own country enabled them to carry on tricks other wise impossible. Mr. Ditterich's case is not parallel with these, perhaps, but is along the same line. THE MAJOBS DIVOBCE A Misunderstanding as to Who Bep resents the Plaintiff The sensational Majors case, came up before Judge Allen yesterday and an in terchange of compliments took place be tween attorneys H. H. Heath and Cal vert Wilson upon a motion for substitu tion of attorneys. Mrs. Louisa Majors Instituted proceed ings against her husband, Harry - Am ador Majors, a short time ago, and base.l her suit on very sensational grounds. It was desired to keep the facts quiet, but all the same they leaked out, and were published at the time. The defendant huabar.d desires to have the case heard in Tulare county, where he resides, and his attorney made a motion to that effect yesterday. Thereupon Attorney Wil son was about to oppose any such dispo sition of the case, altogether ignoring Mr. Heath, who is the attorney of record for Mrs. Majors. Mr. Wilson claimed that he had been appointed by the plain tiff, vice Mr. Heath, discharged. The latter gentleman, however, protested against retirirg from the case unlesshh' fee for services be paid. There was considerable jangling and then Judge Allen interposed by saying that he was not inclined to encourage the habit some people have contracted cf obtaining the services of an attorney and then discharging him peremptorily and without remuneration. The casv was adjourned until Saturday to per mit some understanding to be arrived at. Mr. Heath to be recognized until regular notification of his dismissal Is made. TIDE LANDS RESERVED An Appeal From San Diego That Proved to Be Futile In the suit of Abraham Klauber et als.. against T. J. Higgins et al., the supreme court has affirmed the Judg ment ar.d order of the superior court of San Diego county from which the ap peal was taken by plaintiffs. The action was brought by Klauber ar.d eighteen other plaintiffs against Higgins and a large number of other defendants, Including the City of San Diego and the board of harbor commis sioners of that city. The premises"in con troversy are tide lands over which the waters of the Bay of San Diego ebb and flow-.and the appellants claim title there to upon applications for their purchase under a general laws of the state, ap proved March 28, 1868. The lower court round that r.one of the plaintiffs were seized of the lands, or entitled to posse sion, and that the defendants did not at any time enter upon the same without right or title. The supreme court holds that the ter iitory within which the land in question is situated was reserved from sale, and the officers of the land department of the .state had no authority to sell it, no mat ter what they mny have deemed the character of the land—as whether tide lands or not—was. Therefore, there being no law for the sale of said land, its atten-.pt.-d sale of the patents intended to perfect said sale are void. FOR ROAD TRUSTEES Attempt to Mandamus the Supervis ors Not a Success The petition of R. Garvey, J. D. Dur fee and W. M. Snoddy for a writ of man damus compelling the beard of supervis ors to appoint road trustees for the E! Monte district, was beard by Judge Van Dyke yesterday. City Deputy District Attorney Holton filed a demurrer and contended that the clause of the new law bearing upon the matter was not applicable, inasmuch as the law does not go into effect next year In addition, however, certain points are now before the courts ir. Alameda county and pending a decision there no acjjlon has been taken by the board, even if these vacancies did occur under the new law this instead of next year. Judge Van Dyke sustained the de murrer.ar.d in so doing in practical effect denied the writ. New Suits Filed Thomas Meade vs. R. M. Widney— A suit to recover $374.50. with interest from August 10, 1872, paid in excess of what was due for a tract of land, being part of the Ahila tract, situated at Or ange and Jefferson streets. The tract was supposed to contain 34.37 acres, bu. actually contained only 27.48 acres. W. C. Patters-on vs. T. S. C.

Drake of El Monte for letters of administration. The es tate in this county is valued at $600. Board of Supervisors Yesterday was the time appointed for opening the bids for the Long Beach 5-ohool district bonds. Only one regular bid. accompanied by a check, was re ceived, it being from Hellman & Sar tori. That firm offered for the $10,0fln 6 per cent bonds par, accrued interest and a premium of $181. and that bid was accepted. The bid of Hellman & Sartori required, however, that a "certified copy of proceedings be furnished prior to de liver of bonds satisfactory to our attor neys." John M. Colon, the Calabasas store keeper who has had a saloon license and has, it appeared, made his place more or less of a rendezvous for rough char acters, had his license revoked. The application of W. B. Carter for a saloon license at Terminal island was granted, upon filing a bond. The Divorce Mill Judge Allen granted a decree yester day to Rosa M. Berman divorcing her from Elias M. Berman, on the ground of desertion. In the same department George Van dervier was granted a decree divorcing him from Matilda Vandervier. on stat utory grounds. Like Christy, "statu tory grounds" covers a multitude of sins, but ordinarily it denominates sins either of omission or commission too racy for more precise and accurate definition. The defendant put in neither defence nor appearance, although it is understood that she is in the city. Court Notes E. E. Keeeh and J. T. Houx were yes terday admitted to practice in the United States circuit court. The supervisors began Fitting as a board of equalization yesterday and will remain in session until the 19th Inst. Hugh Lafferty, a native of Ireland, was yesterday admitted to all the rights and privileges of citizenship by Judge Smith. James E. Wright, master of the schooner Nereid, pleaded "not guilty" in the district court yesterday to the charge of illegally landing, Chinese in the United States and the case was con tinued for the term. R. Gillmore withdrew his plea of "not guilty" in department one yesterday to stealing a buggy and team from N. H. De La Matyr, valued at $150, in May last and pleaded "guilty." He was sen tenced to be confined at San Quentin for three years. Judge Allen gave a decree in foreclo sure yesterday to plaintiff in the suit of Louis Lebus against Andrew Stephens et al. for $20,367.30 and $1000 as attorney's fees and order of sale against two tracts LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 7, 1897 of 150 and 174 acres, respectively. In the Hancho La Ballona. W. E. Tripp, who was so speedily ar rested a day or two ago. after being dis charged in the United States court, was .xamined before Justice Young yester day on the charge of misusing the United States mall with intent to de fraud. Tripp sent an order for certain school books from Monrovia to C. C. Parker, the Broadway bookseller, ap pending to the order the name of Prof W. G. Walker, ar.d promising to remit the cost upon delivery. The defendant has been for a long time in Jail, and here tofore Is said to have led an unimpeach able life. That did not avail him, how ever, for he was held to answer In the United States district court in $500 bail.

PUGH-HAYES Married Last Night at Figueroa- Street Residence Miss Mary Adella Hayes and Thomas William Pugh were married last evening at S oelock at the home of the bride's parents, the Rev. John Pittenger of ficiating. The house was lavishly and effectively decorated with flowers and greens. In the hall were scarlet carnations and gladioli. Pepper branches and long strands of English Ivy were used as a background to the flowers in the hall as in the drawing room, where the color scheme was pink and white. Across one corner of the room was a bar, cov ered with pepper sprays, from which was suspended with loops of white ribbon, a huge wedding bell made of pink carna tions and white roses and sweet peas. The rest of the room was decorated with the same fragrant blossoms and some xquisite por.d lillies. Under the bell the bridal party stood, the bride gowned in a cream white silk adorned with dainty lace and ribbons. She wore neither vail nor gloves. The skirt of her gown was cut walking length, and the bodice was made high in the r.eck ar.d with long mousquetaire sleeves. Only the immediate families were present ar.d Mrs. Margaret J. Pugh, sister of the groom, becomingly gowned in a white lace, trimmed organdie, made over pink, played the Mendelssohn wedding march on the piano. After the ceremony dainty refresh ments- were served in the dining room. The table was decorated with a center piece made of La France roses and maiden hair ferns, and over the surface cf the cloth were strewn tiny Madame Cecil Bruner roses. The going-away gown was of blue novelty cloth, the bodice made with Eton jacket and a white vest of liberty chif fon over satin, hat of green straw, trimmed with shaded pelargoniums and violets. Mr. and Mrs. Pugh have gone to Santa Barbara, and will receive their friends Wednesdays after August Ist at 1044 North Figeuroa street. INSPECTOR FLINT Is on the Rampage for Postal Law Breakers Postoffice Inspector M. H. Flint is Ju bilant over the fact that the receipts at the Los Angeies postoffice for the last quarter ending June 30th. 1897, were $47,799.94, as against $44,088.37 for the tame quarter last year. Mr. Flint says he thinks an increase of over $3700 is a very good reason for feeling cheerful, and nobody disputed him. Mr. Flint also stated yesterday, with a gravity that indicated he meant busi ness: "You might say to the people who send letters ir papers and other second class matter that section 327 of the post al laws holds such offenders liable to a penalty of $10, and we have been having so much trouble with that kind of thing lately that we are giving the matter very close attention. Th good and righteous people that think they can save 2 cents by transgressing this section in the postal laws may And themselves out $10 instead. News From Cal Byrne A recent letter from Cal Byrne writ ten from New York, conveyed the inter esting news that he and his mother and brother were just embarking on the same vessel on which Mrs. Ward and her family would make the trip across the Atlantic in staterooms that adjoined hers. At the time of writing neither Mrs. Ward nor the Byrnes knew of the Bradbury incident.

In 1882 Chaffey Brothers laid out and established the Etiwanda colony in San Bernardino county, and in 1883 they founded Ontario, laid out the celebrated Euclid avenue, established the Chaffey College of Agriculture, and in so doing erected a monument to their enterprise and business capacity that will endure for all time. In 1886 the Chaffey Brothers disposed of their interests in Southern California and went to Australia where the Vic toria government made them a liberal offer to establish two irrigation colonies on the Murray river. This offer was to the effect that Chaffey Brothers could purchase 500,000 acres of land for the sum of $20 an acre, and that all the mon eys spent in improving said lands, either by themselves or their assigns should be credited to them on their purchase price. On this basis the town and settlement of Mildura was established and 20,000 acres of land was sold at an average price of about $100 an acre. The system of water works established to irrigate this land and the improvements put on the land was sufficient to entitle them to a deed from the government to about 60,000 acres, one-third of which was sold. The Mildura settlement today numbers about 5000 people and the finest oranges and lemons in Australia are grown in this settlement. As evidence of this fact two years ago the govern ment held a citrus fair at Mildura to which all parts of the country sent cit rus fruits for competition, and although all the judges were from outside locali ties Mildura took all the premiums. One year ago a second citrus fair was held at Melbourne, and Mildura sent its fruits to this fair and again took all the prem iums, other sections declining to com pete. The history of the financial panic which struck Australia in 1892 is still fresh in the public mind. The heaviest banks of that country suspended and millions were lost In the cyclone. Most of these banks resumed payments again, only half a dozen or so failing to open up. While stockholders in the banks lost heavily depositors lost but very little. Many stockholders were unable to come up with the necessary money to save their stocks and thus they lost all. while others made payments upon stock which is not today worth as muchi as it cost to save it, but the payments had to be made. Prices of real estate went down until it seemed as though bottom l would never be reached, ar.d fine properties could not be sold at any price to save their owners from ruin. It is said that it never rains but it pours. The financial panic was not enough chastisement for the people of that country but for the past three years there has been a drought. Australia ex ported 600,000 tons of wheat per annum, but in consequence of the dry seasons that country is importing wheat from California to feed her own people. Aus tralia exported from $150,000,000 to $200, --000,000 worth of wool annually but at the present time over half of the sheep have died of starvation. This is the rainy season in Australia— or rather the end of the rainy season ar.d it has been another dry one. The fruit interests of that country are being developed in a very satisfactory manner. On account of failures of fruit tn Southern Asia and Europe, prices of the Australian crops have been good. It is not uncommon for the vineyardist there to clear from $500 to $600 an acre from his Sultana grapes and some other varieties of fruits are very profitable. Mr. Chaffey was questioned by a Her ald representative, relative to the gov ernment ownership of railroads, and In reply he stated that it was not satisfac tory. The railroads were not run. as economically as they would be by pri vate corporations. That under the laws of Australia no private company could own and operate a railroad; therefore the government had a monopoly of the business; freights and fares were high er there than In the United States. For instance, the distance from Adelaide to Melbourne is about the same that it was from Los Angeles to San Francisco, ana yet, while the fare from Los Angeles to San Francisco was only $15, the fare from Adelaide to Melbourne was over $19. Fares and freight were about 20 per cent higher there than here. As regards labor agitation. Mr. Chaf fey stated that the labor organizations of that country had absolute control of the country, and that capital was very chary about taking hold there at pres ent to put the country in business shape again, although he thought that the final result would be a medium ground that would be satisfactory to both ele ments. Civil service was in force in all de partments of the government, including! the operations of the railroad. Public servants did just what the law required, and they could rot be Induced to go out side of that routine on the most trivial affairs. When a person in the public service became 65 years of age he must retire on a pension whether he desired to do so or not. The courts are clean and justice is meted out promptly to all alike, whether rich or poor, and there is none of the law's delays found in the United States.

Corruption in public affairs is prac tically unknown, and the political boss as known in American politics Is an un known thing in Australian elections, one member of parliament would agree with another member to support his measure if he would return the compli ment, but the fraudulent purchase of votes is unknown either In parliament or at the elections. The Torrens land system is very satis factory, and while it is not compulsory, no one could sell a large tract of land until it has been placed under that sys tem, and he was glad to know that Cali fornia had taken steps to adopt the sys tem. The insurance plan of the system Is its best feature. A stamp Is placed on each land certificate, and this creates a fund to enable the government to guar antee titles; therefore, when a man held a government title no matter how much fraud was behind the title the govern ment must make it good to the holderof the certificate. Mr. Chaffey comes to Southern Cali fornia on important business, which may result in his becoming heavily in terested again in this country. He leaves next Monday for New York, and he may go to Europe, although he may return to California in a few weeks without making his trip abroad. In any event, he will soon be back in California again. In the meantime his wife will remain here visiting friends. His two sons are m Australia yet, one of them being in charge of his large business interests there. Although the Chaffeys lost very heavily during the past few years and have lost their interests in the great ir rigation colony enterprises, their pri vate interests there are still quite large, and they still retain the vigorous busi ness push which has placed them in charge of such vast bupinessenterprises. Queer Political Economy Senator Caffery of Louisiana, who is a free trader on national lines ar.d a pro tectionist on state lines, explains that his vote for higher duties on sugar was in the interest of "home consumption," whatever that may be.

Naturally, a careful investigation into the. qualities of Postum preceeded Its adoption by the officer in Chicago. It is quite generally known to athletes them selves, that Postum Cereal Food Coffee adds. In a marked degree, to the power of any man for continuous physical ex ertion, the heart, lungsand nerves.work ing vastly better than where ordinary coffee has been used. The reason for this is that Postum is made of certain parts of cereals, skillfully selected and sci entifically prepared. Certain in gredients of food are needed by the human body to supply the peculiar gray substance that should fill every nerve cell in the body. This cannot be obtained from drugs, but must come from food. Postum Cereal Food Coffee is made from these elements. It looks like coffee and tastes much like It, but Is a distinct beverage, rich in food value and standing on its own merit. Many people have had Postum poorly made. It Is rich and delicious when boiled 15 minutes' and served hot, with enough in the boiler to make it a very deep seal brown- color. POSTUM CEREAL CO., Lim., Battle Creek, Mich.
