The Stool-Pigeon Methods
Cause a Downfall
A Divorce Desired, and a Slice of the
Property—Suit Against Colonel
Folk Compromised
The bottom has fallen out of the Tup
per case, and the prospects of the de
fendant's being sent to stage's prison
just at present are exceedingly small.
The defense set up has been an indirect
oi»e. The mere fact that Jailer Kennedy
either did or did not, in collusion with
Fay Harris and Harvey Jen.kins, lay a
trap tor Tupper would not relieve the
defendant of the criminal intent. In
the event, however, ot its being shown
that s-uch a trap was laid and that step
by step Tupper was led ir>to it until the
criminal intent found its culminating
point in the overt act, which constitutes
any crime, then the crime Itself is so
overshadowed by the immorality of the
method as to palliate the defendant's
guilt even though it might not Justify it.
"But "the best laid plans ort gang
agley,"say» the poet, and in this case the
prosecution have been, hoisted with their
uwn petard. In other words, in the at
tempt by means of accomplices to fasten
the guilt upon Tupper, the foundation
was laid for the motion of a non-suit
made by defending counsel yesterday.
and which was practically granted. The
jury today will have to consider not
whether defendant "sent and delivered"
a pistol to "Kid" Thompson, as charged,
but whether he "attempted" to do so.
On the first charge Tupper, if convicted,
would have gone to the state's prison
for several yeans, but the latter crime
can be punished with only six months
in. Jail. And that is only if convicted.
The "stool pigeon" method, conse
quently, has not been crowned with suc
cess in this case.
It has been a peculiarity of this case
that the witnesses when cross-examined
by the defense adopted, almost without
exception, a negative attitude. Thfc
positive yes or no were consplcuousiy
absent, and when replaced by "I don't
remember," and guarded answers that
permitted the particular witness to
"hedge," to use the phraseology of the
betting ring,in the event of being crowd
ed too close.
Then, the atmosphere has a debilitat
ing effect upon certain witnesses. Dur
ing the trial some witnesses! have opened
their testimony with apparent candor,
and with the lapse of the noon hour have
reappeared In court and continued their
statement in such manner as to indicate
a mental decrepitude rather surprising.
Upon court reconvening yesterday,
P. J. Kennedy, county Jailer, was re
called for further cross-examination.
The first questions put by defending
counsel wer,e not kind, whatever may
have been the motive, reasonable Or
otherwise/, that prompted them.
"Were you ever indicted by a grand
Jury 1", inquired Mr. Oliver. .
"Never, sir."
"Were you ever charged with any
crime by a grand jury?"
, "Did you ever have a conversation
with Sheriff Burr before the commis-
The Arch Concocter of Diabolical
sion of this offense, in which you told
him you knew of the pistol that was to
be passed Into the jail?"
"I don't remember such a conversation
and don't believe I ever did."
''You wouldn't have ever told the
sheriff a lie, would you?"
"I don't believe that I ever did."
"Are we to understand that you don't
know whether you told Mr. Burr a false
hood or not?"
"If I did have such a conversation I
would have remembered it, and 1 have
no remembrance of such a conversa
That let Mr. Kennedy out.
Fay Harris, one of the accomplicesand
runaway witnesses, was upon the wit
ness stand Just long enough to deny em
phatically that he was in the county
jail on the evening before the Tupper
trial was called.
The prosecution then announced its
case as closed.
Atorney Mills asked that the Jury
might be retired in order that he might
argue on a motion for a non-suit. The
Jury was accordingly instructed to re
Mr Mills then began an argument that
lasted for nearly an hour and that raised
a most important point, sustained by nu
merous authorities quoted In the reports.
The contention of Mr. Mills was that,
unless the overt act constituting the
crime conjoined with the criminal In
tent, no crime had been committed.
Quoting from Bishop the axiom that
"the acceseory follows the principal like
a shadow," he called the attention of the
court to the fact that Fay Harris was the
principal in this case and not the defend
ant, and this conceding that the defend
ant had the criminal Intention Imputed
to him by the prosecution. The language
«f tte statute under which the defendant
was charged read: "deliver or send Into
the Jail," and a defendant circumstanced
as Tupper was alleged to have been
could only "send into the jail" a pistol
if the man to whom he delivered it wae
compelled by him to so act. If Uarris,
after having received the pistol from
Tupper, had ju»t gone about his busi
ness, counsel argued, the charge couldn't
lie; and that Harris acted under compul
sion from Tupper was negatived by the
prosecution itself, It being conceded he
was a feigned accomplice.
Along this line counsel made quite a
strong argument and incidentally
quoted numerous authorities* on the
"stool plgeoii" industry.
In the case of one Love, charged with
burglary, the supreme court of Illinois
was quoted by Mr. Mills as follows:
"Strong men are sometimes unpre
pared to cope with temptation and resist
encouragement to evil when financially
embarrassed and impoverished. A con
templated crime may never be devel
oped into a consummated act. To stim
ulate unlawful intentions, for the pur
pose and with the motive of bringing
them to maturity, that they may be
punished, is a dangerous practice. It is
safer law and sounder morals to hold
that when one arranges to have a crime
committed agalnt-t his property or him
self, and knows that an attempt is to be
made to encourage others to commit th- 1
act, and others to be led Into and encour
aged in its commission by one acting in
concert with such owner, that no crime
is thus committed. The owner and his
agent may wait passively for the would
be criminal to perpetrate the offense,
and each and every part of it, for him
self. They must not aid and encourage.
Whose Zeal Seems to Have Outstripped
His ri3cretion
or solicit him that they may seek to pun
In the case also of one Hayes, cited
alsO by counsel, the supreme court of
Missouri, has this to say of the use of
stool pigeons: "Human nature Is frail
enough at best, and requires no encour
agement in wrong doing. If we cannot
assist another and'prevent him from vi
olating the laws of the land, we at least
should abstain from any active efforts
in the way of leading him into tempta
tion. Desire to commit crime, and op
portunities for the commission thereof,
would seem sufficiently general and nu
merous, and no special efforts would
seem necessary in the way of encourage
ment or assistance in that direction."
These are words of mercy as well as
of justice, attributes that have not been
distinguishing features in this case.
Upon the conclusion of Mr. Mills' ar
gument Judge Smith, while overruling
the motion, warned District Attorney
McComas against conducting the prose
cution along the line pursued, and hold
ing the contention of defending counsel
to be valid. Inasmuch, however, as the
greater offense—that of actually sending
into the jail—lncluded the lesser—that
of attempting to send a weapon into the
Jail —the court held that the question
was one for the jury on the minor point,
and could be dealt with when the Jury
was instructed.
The Jury was then recalled and the
defense proceeded to open its case. The
first witness put forward was H. H.
Yonkin.township constable and previous
ly a deputy sheriff. He testified to be
ing familiar with the county Jail. He
stated that he knew the lattice work of
the middle tank, and although he had
never measured the aperture, he didn't
think a pistol such as the one submitted
could be passed through.
David Martin, deputy constable and
previously deputy sheriff, also stated
that the lattice work of the middle tank
was such as not to permit the gun (sub
mitted) being passed through.
"You never tried to pass a pistol
through, did you?" enquired Mr. McCo
No, sir."
Mr. McComas took a card that had
been prepared by the defense as repre
senting the holes in the lattice work, and
with some difficulty but considerable
triumph passed the pistol through. The
lattice work is made of steel, however,
and by stipulation the witness was de
puted to go to the jail and experiment,
at the point where Kramer is said to
have been caught In the act of passing
the pistol.
Upon tf.e witness Martin returning
into court he stated that he had been
able to pass the pistol through the lat
tice work. He had to do so very gingerly,
however, .first putting through the bar
rel and trigger guard, and then bending
the weapon down to permit of the pas
sage of the hammer.
Claude E. Hill, a prisoner in the jail,
was the next witness, and testified to
being in the jail on the 14th or 15th inst.
and to seeing Harris and Jenkins in the
jail somewhere about 5 o'clock. Harris
came first and went away and returned
with Jenkins, Kramer and Mr. Kennedy.
It was on a visiting day and the day be
fore Tupper was brought to trial.
"What are you in for?" inquired Mr.
McComas, on cross-examination.
"I don't lenow that that has anything
to do With the case," was the response.
"He needn't answer that question,"
Interposed the court.
Mr. McComas tried to prove It to wit
ness, but the court interposed and held
that Mr. McComas could only ask those
questions prescribed by statute.
Sheriff John Burr next took the sitand,
being made S witness for the defense.
"Do you remember a conversation you
had with Jailer Kennedy previous to the
commission of this alleged crime, when
Mr. Kennedy told you he had knowledge
that a gun was to be passed into the
jail?" began Mr. Oliver.
"I don't recollect any such conversa
tion," was the answer. "We had a con
versation of another scheme where an
other party was to find a rig and a gun
for Tupper."
"You knew of this scheme before it
happened, didn't you?"
"No, sir."
"Do you remember stating to the re
porters of the Times and Herald at the
St. Elmo hotel that you knew of the gun
coming In, and intercepted it in order to
save human life?"
"I don't remember any such conversa
"What |l the rule regarding permits at
the jail?"
"Three visiting day 9 a week."
"Ordinarily the permit is good for one
day, i 9it not?"
"Yes, but sometimes it Is good for
thirty days."
The stub-book for April was produced
and Mr. Burr stated that the book did
not show stubs of admission for Harris
or Jenkins on the 16th of April (the day
when the gun was introduced into the
The only inference that could be drawn
was that both Harris and Jenkins had
been Introduced wi,th official sanction.
W. H. Young, clerk of the township
court, wa3 the first witness for the de
fense in the afternoon. He testified to a
complaint having been filed in his court
on April 17th against Jenkins and Har
ris, by Jailer Kennedy, for having sent
a pistol into the Jail.
Arthur Ashmtad, a county prisoner,
being called, testified to bt ing in the
middle tank between 12 and 2 o'clock on
April 16th. He saw trusty Kramer go
to the back of the tank, but he saw him
make no attempt to shove a pistol In
side, nor had Kramer any pistol in his
hand. He called to "Kid" Thompson to
Speak to him. Kennedy came and looked
through the front of the tank and then
walked around and Kramer walked
away with him. Kramer said to the
"Kid": "I haven't got it," and that was
On cross-examination witness said
that the only reply the "Kid" made was:
"All right." Kramer had no coat or
vest on at the time.
"Did you have any knowledge of a
gun being sent to Kid?" inquired Mr.
McComas on cross examination.
"No, sir."
"You were In jail on a felony, pending
an appeal?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did you have any hand in working
up the matter of sending a weapon in to
•Kid' Thompson?"
"No. sir."
"You know Adolph Beechman, on First
street, don't you?"
"No, sir."
"Didn't you send to him or some other
locksmith to have a saw or key made?"
Objection to the question was sus
"Didn't you join in the scheme to re
lease 'Kid' Thompson, and afterward
tell Kennedy so?"
"No, sir."
"Well, well, Mr. McComas, do you
want to try this man?" inquired the
Judge Smith held the prosecution down
to the strict line prescribed for impeach
"How long have you been in jail?" re
sumed the deputy district attorney.
"About nine rfionths."
"Have you been promised any assist
ance in your appeal?"
"No. sir."
"We don't profess to have a 'pull'with
the attorney general," ventured Mr. Ol
The witness made no answer.
J C. Cokanour, also a county prisoner
corroborated the previous witness. He
was In the middle tank on April 16, and
saw Kramer come to the west end of the
tank and call for "Kid." He had no pis
tol that the witness saw, and when
Kennedy came around Kramer followed
him. On July 14, Wednesday of last
week, witness saw Harris and Jenkins
in the jail, and gave the conversation
that took place among other of the pris
oners when they were seen.
Mr. McComas tried to persuade wit
ness that he had not seen Jenkins and
Harris last Wednesday night, and fall
ing in that he sarcastically asked ques
tions as to his conviction recently on
the charge of arson. On the objection of
the defense, the Jury was instructed to
disregard the remarks of the district at
torney with regard to witness' convic
The court reporters for The Herald
and Times were both examined regard
ing an interview had with Sheriff Burr
at the St. Elmo hotel on June 9th. The
sheriff then stated that Kramer had
been reinstated as waiter on Kennedy's,
table on account of his assistance to
Kennedy in the matter of the pistol be
ing taken into the jail. Also that the
plan adopted had been rendered abso
lutely necessary by reason of the des
peratecharacter of "Kid" Thompson and
to save life.
Otto yon Martiny, convicted a few
days ago of a felony, testified that after
Kramer was relieved from his duties
as a trusty he took his place. He car
ried food to the Jailer's family and any
prisoners up there. He filled the duty
of waiter for about six weeksand during
that time he saw Kramer very many
times. He was not confined, but was
about the corridors.
The witness was very reticent, and
appeared to be fencing in his answers to
the questions propounded.
"Has anyone been asking you not to
testify?" inquired Mr. Oliver.
"No; no one asked me," replied- the
"Did anyone tell you you had better
not testify?"
The witness was silent. Finally he
stated that he didn't remember, and
that Mr. Kennedy told him to tell the
"Is it not a fact that he told you he
would see Mr. McComas and see that he
did not press your case hardly?"
Witness again lapsed in.to silence, and
a fencing contest ensued between the
witness and the counsel. Martiny re
fused to come out and flatly deny that
any pressure had been brought to bear
upon him to prevent him from testify
ing, and yet that was the inference from
the hesitation he displayed.
Bernard Mills, an. attorney at law and
one of the attorneys In the case, upon
going upon the witness stand testified
that he saw a letter addressed to Margie
Brown from 'Kid' Thompson, in which
the writer wanted her to get a hatan.d
a gun. Tupper's name was not men
tioned in it. "Mrs. Brown came to my
office," said witness, "In company with
Tupper. She didn't Introduce Tupper,
and when she* asked my advice on the
letter I told her not to have anything to
do with such a matter."
The witness next gave his conversa
tion with Kennedy at Santa Monica,
when he railed upon Kennedy as an of
ficer to arrest Harris and Jenkins, and
detailed the facts which have heretofore
been made public. ,
Byron L. Oliver, another of the attor
neys for (he defense, made a statement.
"I was representing Kramer in thc
supreme court, and having read about
the attempted Jail break in. the papers
I went up to see him. I told him he had
injured his case and asked him what he
meant. He then told me that it was all
right, for Kennedy knew all about il.
That Harris and Jenkins were to brin£
the defendant's pistol into the jail, and
he himself was to be caught in the act
of passing the pistol. He further slated
that Kennedy said that my brief wouid
not cut much figure, but that if he was
granted a new trial on his appeal, he,
Kennedy, would see that the case was
Witness also told of his conversation
with Kennedy in. the supreme court,
when the latter asked him to withdraw
his argument, particulars of which have
already been published. Witness also
stated that Kennedy had told him,
when witness remarked how injudicious
Kramer had been in lending himself to
the scheme, that he proposed to protect
Kramer and that some such scheme was
necessary to preserve life in the case of
such a dangerous criminal as "Kid"
The witness was retired, and the ca?e
for the defense closed.
District Attorney McComas opened in
argument and made a short running
commentary upon, the case. Today ar
guments will be resumed and the case
may go to the jury late In the afternoon.
A Phoenix, Ariz., dispatch says that
the governor yesterday signed requisi
tion papers for the return to the terri
tory of "Colonel" Tupper, implicated
with "Kiel" Thompson in the proceed
ings subsequent to the Roscoe train rob
hery. The Ai izona charge is that of un
lawfully branding cattle. The crime is
alleged to have been committed last
year on the Gila river, west of Phoenix.
A Household Divided Against Itself
With a Vengeance
An odd and complicated divorce suit
came up in Judge York's department
yesterday in which there is about $60,000
worth of property involved.
The suit has been brought by Mary J.
Pattison against JamesH. W. Pattison.
Frank J. and Maggie Pattison, and
Georgie McCarthy and her husband. The
plaintiff and the principal defendant
were married in Los Angeles in 1894 and
the husband's two daughters, Maggie,
aged 17, and Georgie, aged 15, lived with
the newly-married couple in the Fort
Hill house. It is alleged that the girls
drank to excess and cussed and swore
like little troopers. They also stayed out
late at night and consorted with lewd
and immoral people.
Shortly after the marriage these
daughters scandalized their step-mother
and when remonstrated with called her
" a d old slop barrel" and other
choice epithets. In April of last year
Georgie married and defendant gave her
a house on Olive street. Mrs. Pattison
thought if the girl Maggie would go and
live with hersister she might have peace,
but her husband would not have it.
Frequently Mrs. Georgie would return
to the old home and relieve herself by
cussing her step-mother, and on one oc
casion last November she dragged Mrs.
Pattison across the room while the
daughter Maggie threw coal at her. And
this in the presence of the husband, who
made no remark. These curiously dis
posed daughters even went to the length
of threatening to put strychnine in Mrs.
Pattison's food.
As a consequence of the abuse Mrs.
Pattison became nervous and ill and In
fear of her life. She now claims that the
defendant's conduct to her both before
and since their marriage has been false
and fraudulent, and she believes he did
so only to further his designs, and after
their •consummation compel her to get
a divorce.
In a recent suit brought against him
by his sister and others it developed
that Mr. Pattison had, without the
knowledge of his father, introduced a
number of interlineations in a deed made
by his father to him to one lot. The suit
was for an accounting. The marriage
took place during the pendency of this
suit, and the defendant then represented
to his fiancee, who was also his cousin,
that he had won the suit, whereas it had
gone against him. She returned to her
home in Missouri and he in writing to
her said that when she returned, and
previous to their marriage, he would
settle a certain amount of property on
her. In 1894 she returned to Los An
geles and he assured her that he had
made certain settlements. On the very
day of the marriage, but prior to the
ceremony, he went before a notary and
purported to convey lots 9 and 11, block
V, of the Allso tract, to the plaintiff.
This deed was never recorded, however,
and it has since developed that these lots
belonged to defendant's father and were
two of those fraudulently Inserted in the
deed referred to. At the same time de
fendant made a number of other con
veyances not, as plaintiff alleges, for
the purpose of passing title, but to de
fraud her of her marital rights.
Mrs. Pattison claims her husband's
estate yields about $350 per month, and
she asks that she be awarded an al
lowance of $1500; that she be granted a
decree of divorce, awarded the Fort Hill
homestead, a reasonable amount of ali
mony, and that the several deeds be de
clared null and void.
The plaintiff filed an amended com
plaint yesterday, and so the case was
continued to be reset.
The Suit Brought by Mrs. I. M. Folk
Settled Out of Court
Quite a sensational trial was spoiled
yesterday when the suit of Mrs. I. M.
Polk against her ex-husband, Colonel
Polk, to recover $15,480.72, with 7 per
cent interest from October 31, 1892, was
The suit was brought to recover these
moneys as having been entrusted tc
Colonel Polk for safekeeping, and at the
time that suit was brought all of the
colonel's property in the city was at
tached. The answer was filed on March
15 last, and it was then set forth that
the expensive taStes of Mrs. Polk, her
exceeding love for bric-a-brac and In
clination to tf avel had made sad havoc
with that 115,000. Just before filing this
answer Colonel Polk made one of his
periodic visits to the southern republic,
but for reasons that did not appear upon
the surface posted down the coast, and
made the trip by yacht. Not long ago
he was united in marriage to Miss Min
nie Bradbury at the Palace hotel in San
Francisco, and Ute couple went to Mex
ico for the honeymoon. They returned
to the Arcade station In Los Angeles
Just about the time that Wriothesley
Russell Ward and Mrs. John Bradbury
were waiting to take the train for the
north at River station.
The suit yesterday was called up by
Judge Ballard, sitting for Judge Shaw,
and dismissed, it having been compro
mised out of court. While not made
public, it Is understood that Mrs. Polk
is to have a life interest in the Hope
street property, as well as some stocks,
etc., aggregating about $8000.
