GREENE DEED Its Inward History Being Divulged WARE TURNS STATE'S WITNESS DAMAGING STATEMENTS MADE AGAINST COMPTON The County's Fumigation Debts—The Livingston Alimony Cace —The Alaniz Will Contest Closed The preliminary examination of A y E. Davis, W. M. Ware and' Charles Compton was begun im the township court yesterday. The defendants are charged, with J. H. Shields and John Doe, with fraudulently conspiring to sign the name of Louis H. Greene to a deed for the purpose of obtaining a loan from the Columbia Savings bank. Deputy District Attorney McComas and Attorney Earl Rogers, as special counsel, prosecuted, and each of the de fendants was represented by separate counsel. W. H. Shinn represented Compton, Theodore Martin, Davis, and B. E. Vickrey the defendant Ware. The trial of these defendants, when it reaches the superior court —that is, if iliey are held to answer—promises to be most beautifully tangled up. When Davis and, Ware were arrested they were examined and held to answer. An information was filed against them by the district attorney, to which a de murrer was filed, and the informality of the information was confessed. Judgs Smith ordered that a new information be filed, but instead of that being done, a new complaint was issued against the present defendants and J. H. Shields and that mythical John Doe. The pres ent examination, therefore, began yes terday under rather exceptional condi tions. Counsel at once raised the ques tion of the court's Jurisdiction as to the re-examination of Davis and Ware, for the reason that a case was pending against them in the superior court, but that question was disposed of perempto rily. Then Mr. Shinn, in behalf of Comp ton, demanded a separate trial, and that also was denied.. The conspiracy was of such a nature that each of the parties to it played into one another's hands in such-a manner that the prosecution thought a strong probability existed of a failure to hold the defendants if separate examinations were accorded. At the same time a joint examination adds materially to the technical diffi culties. An ordinary attorney having a good pair of lungs—and most of those practicing at the Los Angeles bar are so possessed—can, if in a combative hu- mor, raise more objections in five min utes than the court can pass upon in half an hour. When three attorneys, as yesterday, are pitted against one an other and unite together for the purpose of opposing the prosecution the time is apt to be made lively. And it was. Every bit of evidence was objected to by one or the other of the defendants' counsel, and sometimes by all three. Quite fre quently the court would sustain an ob jection as to one defendant and over rule it as to the others, and as a con sequence of this a very tangled up record must ensue. But it is one of the draw backs attending a joint examination. and cannot be avoided. Lewie H. Greene was the first witness put forward- by the prosecution. He testified that he formerly lived, in Cin cinnati, Ohio, but is now engaged as a horticulturist in the Ojai valley. He stated that his father returned to Cin cinnati last spring, and that lot 1 of th- Daly tract was purchased by his father three or four years ago. A. P. West, cashier of the Columbia Savings bank, identified the forged deed. It was first shown to him by O. P. Clark of the Title Insurance and Trust com pany, who went to witness' house about 9 oclock one night and said he had made a loan for the bank. The bank had loaned' him some money on the property some days before, andi some suspicion was aroused by the fact, and the inves tigation that followed revealed the fact that the deed was a forgery. "We examined the records," said wit ness, "and saw the deed had been re corded properly. I conferred with. Mr. Clark, the gentleman who had made the loan, and he sect a telegram to Mr. Greene at Cincinnati. Next morning 1 saw the answering telegram. The loan referred to had been mad; to A. E. Da vis by the Columbia bank through th:- Title Insurance Co. The loan v.as $1000 and was made on a mortgage of lot 1 of the Daly tract. The first time I saw Davis was om the morning of his arrest. He then stated that he had traded off a piece of property at Denver, including the $1000 he got from us, for the Daly tract lot. He said he had bought the Denver property from Ware for $300 a day or two before. At later date he said when he went into the deal he thought all was straight. When he brought a check for $950 to our bank the clerk ac companied him and he got it cashed at the Citizens' bank, ar.ci after getting the money he said he met Ware, who was waiting for him, and handed the money over to him save $-50. He had spent $10. but $240 was on deposit in the Broad way bank and he gave me a check for the amount. He then said that at first he thought he was engaged in legitimate business, but afterwards was sure the deal was all crooked or he wouldn't have been given such a heavy commission for his share. "I saw a aetcj in the possession of Mrs. Davis," said witness, in answer to a direc". inquiry, "conveying from J. 5) Shields to Davis lot 16, block 4, West Highlands, Arapahoe county, Colorado." HeaSthy Mind Healthy Body ... Both brought ... about by Postum Cereal Food Coffee When the usual volley of objections were hurled against the identification and Introduction of this deed in evi dence. Mr. McComas said that he simply Introduced It on general principles, as it might prove useful later on. There was a laugh at this mode of piling up evidence of all kinds on the supposition that something or other would hit the mark, but the objections were overruled all the same. On cross-examination witness stated that the Columbia bar.k gave the check to the Title Insurance Co. It was made payable to that organization and was paid by the Citizens' bank on a balance there belonging to the Columbia bank. Melvln Howard was the next witness put forward by the prosecution and he was by no means a willing witness. He did not, judging from his hesitancy, teil anything more than he was compelled to, but what was extorted by direct questions was quite Interesting. The witness is an attorney, and s>tated that he had known Compton for two or three years. He had a conversation with him last May when a deal in Washing ton street property was discussed. "I told him," said witness, " the proc erty was for sale and the owner in. the east, and the price $4000 for which I thought it would be sold. Another time I had a note for $300 I was trying to ne gotiate. I couldn't get it cashed and Compton told me never to mind, that some money was comimg to him on turn ing a little trick, and he would give me $100. The deal, it was understood, was the one he had spoken of before as a 'mortgage trick.' in which he was going to clear $1000. "I saw in the paper that the Daly lot had been conveyed to Mr. Davis and I told Compton, when I next saw him. that the sale in which he was interested had been made and he could get his money. He afterwards told me that the fellow had skipped out with all the mon ey, and I didn't get my $100. "I know something illegitimate had been done with the lot," continued Wit ness, l "and that Greene had not sold out. I questioned Compton about it, and he said that they had played a trick upon him and mentioned Davis as the man who. had got the money and run oft with it. He told me that on the evening of the day that I told him that the sale had been made, after he had gone to hunt the man up and when he failed tb find him." On crossi-examination the witness stated that when he told Compton that he knew the deal had been made and the deed recorded, Compton stated he knew nothing about it. In answer to the inquiry of the court witness said he knew about the lot be cause he was attorney for Green and had been trying to sell the lot. When he saw the deed mentioned in the paper as having been recorded he knew some thing was wrong, for he knew Greene was ien the east, and Mr. Cuddy, Greene's agent, was in the City of Mexico. Wit ness made no mention of having knowl edge of the shady transaction for a couple of weeks after he knew the fact itself. When Davis was arrested Comp ton told witness of the fact and said that "they had got hold of Ware, too, and he supposed that he'd also be drawn into it. After witness had had an interview with the chief of police Compton told him that he, too, had been up at the police station for three or four hours, but "that he didn't care." , Reverting back to the time when Mr. Howard saw in the daily paper ot the deed having been transferred witness stated that when he told Compton that "that trick had been turned," the latter threw up his hands and professed great surprise. He at once said he would go and hunt the fellow up and return with the $100 he had promised to loan witness. The evidence of Mr. Howard was rather "scrappy" and disconnected, but one fact stood out in bold relief, and that was that his own attitude in the matter he was testifying to as Greene's agent was. to say the least, peculiar. But If some little surprise was permis- l -sibl- over Howard's testimony, that of the defendant, Ware, was more so. This defendant went upon the stand as a wit ness for the prosecution and turned spate's evidence. He gave all the details of the plot to swindle the- bank, and stripped of its superfluous and minor points he testified as follows: "I first met Compton about the 10th of May in an office at the corner of Sec ond and Broadway. Mrs. Remold sent for me and introduced me to Compton. We spoke about raising money on certain property on Flower street and another lot on Washington street. In discussing the proposition he said it wasn't safe lo tackle that, but that we could go along and see. We got the abstract and found $3000 mortgage on it. He said, "Now you see!" Then he said he'd find a piece of property, and he then brought up the Daly lot. He said: "Here's a piece of property the owner of which is in the east. The man that handled it us.-d to be chief of police here and was then in the City of Mexico. He told us to go and get a certificate of title and by the time it was ready he'd have the money to pay for it. J. H. Shields, at 11.1 South Broadway, looked after It and some days later Compton put up the money to pay for it. He said, however, that he was disappointed because he thought that we would have got the certificate from another company, and he didn't think the bank would advance money on that one, but that we could buy. "There was a deed made out to me the same day the other one was, and that one was handed to me by Compton in the alley behind the New York kitchen. I told him 1 didn't want it made out to me. and I knew my wife would not sign it, and so we went back and another one— the one in evidence —was made out in Compton's office at Spring and Temple streets. I told him that Davis would get the loan. I had seen Davis a day or two before that and I asked if he would go into a real estate deal. I said I had a party who would deed a piece of prop erty to him and asked him if he would get the money on it. He said he would, and went out and saw the lot. He said it was a good piece of property, and I took him down to Mrs. Reinold's office. A card of introduction was given to him by Mrs. Remold to the American Loan company." Witness proceeded to tell of the nego tiations carried on for obtaining a loan and resuming said he got the money one Wednesday morning. Compton was standing outside the bank watching the money being paid." said witness. "He went down to Decker's saloon and after Davis came out he and I went to Ed McGinness' saloon and he put the money out on the table. He took up $250 and I took up the remainder. Charlie Comp ton came in then and we went inside and I pulled the money out. He said "Divide It up." I told him to do it. He then said, "What'll we do with the women?" i said 1 didn't know, and he shared $100 for her and $100 for King, the notary; $400 for himself, and he said. I think, that Howard was to have some of it. I LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 7, J897 got $180, and of this $150 was for myself; $20 for the abstract, and $10 for J. H. Shields. We each stowed the money away and went out to the bar and I took a cigar and he took a drink. Compton said, "Ed, you take a drink and kill the piece,' 'and he put out a dollar. Witness retailed a conversation with Compton In which the latter said that In case of trouble he could "stick the Jury" every time, and that he had two good friends in the district attorney's office." This raised a laugh in court and Deputy District Attorney McComas inquired if Compton had mentioned the names of his friends in the district attorney's office. "Yes," answered witness," he said Wil lis was one and Williams the other." That was the story told on direct ex amination. Attorney Shinn pleaded sur prise in the defendant Ware being put upon the stand in such a way, and said he was not prepared to proceed at once with his cross-examination. McComas objected to any delay, but the court thought the defense were entitled to some time under the circumstances, and so the case was continued until this morning at 9 oclock. FUMIGATION INDEBTEDNESS Twenty Nine Suits to Recover Begun by the District Attorney The old question whether the orchard ists throughout the country who have had their orchardsand groves fumigated under direction of the horticultural commissioner can be made to pay their back debts or not for such service is being taken up by the district attorney's office. Under the old law, all the indebted ness contracted by a fruit grower for fumigation was considered a lien against the property, but the law failed to provide any mode by which the lien could be enforced. In suing to recover on a note a man upon winning judgment has it declared a lien against the mort gaged property given to secure payment, but the horticultural commissioners were face to face with an altogether dif ferent state of affairs. Suit could, it is true, have been brought against the in dividual grower, but upon the case com ing to trial it might be found that the property was heavily mortgaged or had, perhaps, changed hands, and the courts could not in such case declare the sum, whatever it might be, a lien against the property. With the passage of the new county government act these difficulties were obviated, and the deputy district attor ney has instituted suit against twenty nine orchardists and growers through out the county for amounts due. Im 1895 the county expendad the sum of $6602.22 for fumigation, and now the at tempt is being made to recover at least a portion of this money for some of it probably will never be recovered. The delinquents who are now being proceed ed against are as follows: Joseph B. Pearce, Francis England, J. J. Tweedy and Cyrus Brown, all of Downey. W. Wood, Silas B. Root, W. D. Spen cer, Moses A. Abbott, Tracy Abbott, the heirs of G. Lynch, J, Root and J. W. Reynold, all of Rivera. Peter O. Johnston and George W.Max ?on of Ranchito. A. H. Dun'.ap, John C. Hlatt, W. O. Graham and James Quill, all of Whit tier. S. M. Sevier, P. G. Carter, J. C. Whit tlngtcn, Lulu Pyle Little and H. C. Pyle all of Monrovia. M. D. Johr.s-on and A. M. F. McCul lough of Duarte. Frederick Schwan of Pomona. George Hockwell of Covina. J. A. Trayler of Pasader.a. H. T. Hazard of Los Angeles. THE LIVINGSTON CASE A Quick Ruling by tbe Supreme Court The first decision of Judge Allen's that has been appealed to the supreme court has resulted in a confirmation of his de cision. The case was a painfully sad one, and in this case of S. W. Livingston vs. Mrs. M. A. Livingston the novel point in volved was whether a wife must sup port her hue-band if he no longer can do so himself. In this case the couple re sided at Pasadena, andi the husband was over S3 years of age. The coupl? had lived happily together until his wife's daughter by a former mar riage came to live with them. Then the trouble began, as the stepdaughter at once took the whip tn hand, induced her mother to have her husband examined for insanity, and made his life a burden in every way. He was weak and sick, needing a nurse, but he was so neglected that a neighbor took pity on him and brought him back to health. When he had recovered- he went home again, but was ordered to occupy an outside room and the quarrel as to where he would sleep finally drove him away again. Judge Allen decided that a husband who is thus driven from his home and is without means of support and cannot work on account of infirmity, can main tain an action against his wife for a reasonable allowance out of her separate property. The case was appealed, and, the de cision awarding $24 a month for the old man's support was sustained. Yesterday morning he came into court by his attorneys and gave notice that he will apply for an increase of this allowance. The hearing will occur or. the 12th inst.

The Alaniz Contest Some time ago the contest over the will of Concepcion Alaniz resulted In a verdict for the contestants, and such finding seemed so utterly opposed to the evidence that the defeated parties gave notice of a motion for a new trial, in tending to appeal the case if the motion should be denied. Yesterday, however, a stipulation was filed in court that a new trial be granted, and the will be admitted to probate. The difficulties, whatever they were, were settled out of court ar.d the contest is now at an end. If, however, the will that was contest ed had been broken a previous will was in existence identical with the last ore save in a difference of executor. Mrs/. A. Concepcion Rubio-Warner is the ex ecutrix of the present will and gave bond in $10,000. The Divorce Mill A decree was granted yeste-rday to Brigida Aliniz de Avise by Judge Allen, divorcing her from Jesse Avise, on the statutory charge. The husband keeps the saloon in. the San Julian house, cor ner of Fifth and San Julian streets, and the claim set up was that from the 13th to the 19th of July he lived at the San Julian house with one Joeie Sanchez in open adultery. The eight children were awarded to the wife. Some time ago Ella Burns filed her complaint in divorce against A. J. Burns, alleging cruelty. The husband filed a cross-complaint alleging deser tion, and yesterday when the case came to trial the wife defaulted, and a decree was granted to the husband. Court Notes Frank Bush, who pleaded guilty to stealing three pounds of coffee and had against him a prior conviction of petty larceny, was sentenced by Judge Allen yesterday to one year at San Quentin. A writ of habeas corpus was issued yesterday by Judge Allen, directed to Mrs. Watson, 935 Bartlett street, that she produce in court Bertha C. Gard, aged 8 years, who, it is claimed, is being restrained of her liberty. In the habeas corpus proceedings of Janet Thompson, of Duarte, who claims to have been married at sea, A. M. Stephens was made attorney of record with Walter Haas, in the defense of the young couple. The time for filing briefs was also extended by the court to Tues day, the 10th inst.
