A BRIEF FILED In the Marriage Case of Janet Thompson THE REPORT OF HER INSANITY THE UNEXPECTED DISCOVERY OF THE DRAKE WILL Little Martin Poco Given Over to a Guardian—Another Little Scrap in the Leonis Matter There have not been lacking in all ages of the world men of light and lead ing In the scientific world who have pro nounced love as an. incipient form of in sanity, to be calmed and quieted or de veloped into an acute form by attend ing circumstances. The report was current yesterday thai 15-year-old Janet Thompson of Duarte, whose sea marriage with Homer Nor man is being contested by her father, had developed symptoms of decidedly unsound mind. When Judge Allen ordered that pend ing a decision of the case the young lacy should be placed under the care of some motheriy woman to be agreed*upon, Mrs. Sheldon, wife of one of the deputy sher iffs, was chosen, but It developed that the Sheldon family were at the seaside. It was then decided that Sheriff Burr should take the young wife (?) to San Fernando and place her under the care of Mrs. Burr, ar.d that wasdor.-e. While no authentic information could be obtained yesterday afternoon, color was given to the report anent Janet Thompson having developed insanity by the fact that during the afternoon the sheriff left for San Fernando, an unusual thing for him to do In the middle of the week. However, the decision of the court may be given with regard to the valid ity of the sea marriage, it is safe to say the sympathy of very many people will be with the young folks. The girl, though only 15 years of age, looks, like many California girls, much older than her years. She is mature of face and form and if the manner of herelopement did not indicate equal maturity of mind, at least in that respect errors of the kind have ere this beer, committed by women many years her senior. Attorneys Walter F. Haas and A. M. Stephens yesterday filed their brief for the young couple with the court. It Is a voluminous document, consisting of twenty-two pages of typewritten mat ter, and, within certain lines, Isexhaust ive In treatment. Mr. Haas has during the short time at his disposal gathered together a mass of authorities to sus tain, the several points he made in argu ing for the validity of the marriage, and beginning with the "natural rightsof in dividuals" to marry—as laid down by Blackstone and Bishop on Marriage and Divorce —he has proceeded in logical sc- quence in making his proof under the several headings: "Age of Consent;" "What Constitutes a Solemnization of Marriage;" "How a Marriage Made in Another State is Regarded by the Cali fornia Laws;" "The California Statute Construed;" "Was the J. Wiley a Vessel of the United States;' "The Rightsof the Court on Habeas Corpus;" "Critical Re view of Opposing Counsel's Points." Today, in all probability, Attorney Le Compte Davis will, in behalf of the father of the girl, file his opposing brief, andi the matter will then be considered by the court. A BASQUE DAY People Who Speak No English Nor Care to The hearing In the habeas corpus pro ceedings yesterday before Judge Allen wherein the custody of 3-year-old Mar tin Poco was in question, revealed, at least, that the Basques are not prone to tell the truth when a lie or an. evasion will serve the purpose much better. The mother of the child had, according to the husband, Juan Poco, left him ar.d tied with her paramour. Michel Harzou to a disreputable house on New High street, leaving her 3-year-old baby at home with its father. Afterward she came back and stole the child Trom her husband, carrying it to the low resort whither she had fled. If these assertions are true, the baby, of course, would go to the father, and so Mrs. Marie Louise Poco went upon the witness stand to controvert them. She said that her husband ejected her from their home on Alameda street, and she had gone to the notorious house because she knew she could get credit there. Last Sunday, however, she left there, and went to the Lafayette hotel. "Did you know that the Buena Vista house had a bad reputation?" asked wit ness' counsel. "I don't know nothing," was the, reply. "Did you think it was a, properj place for a lady to live?" "I didn't know nothing." "Why did you leave?" "A friend of mine told me to." The witness made her answers through an interpret'r. and conceded that when her husband ejected her an express wagon took her things and the belong ings of the man Harzou up to the Buena Vista house. She denied Illicit rela tions existing between them, however. Harzou also went upon the stand, and through the interpreter denied every thing save a proper friendship for Mrs. Poco. He allowed, however, that the woman's husband had caught him sitting on the edge of her bed, and the day she was ejected he also was told to quit. Some flagrant contradictions and evasions had been, manifest on the testimony of both witnesses, but when the woman' attorneys put upon the stand the keeper of tha n.egro resort known as the Buena Vista house Judge Allen refused to permit it The idea of the proprietor of a house of ill fame being asked to testify as to the virtue of anybody was a trifle too ab surd. F. Goyllno, editor of the French paper, testified as to the good character of Juan Poco, and the latter's hard-working hab its having been shown, Judge Allen said he thought the case was a proper one for stipulation. Addressing the hus band, he said he sympathized with him. At the same time a man. without a wife or a home could not care for a child of tender years. Then the wife, doing evil as she may. has a mother's feelings, and is entitled to some consideration. By agreement it was decided that the child should be cared for by Domingo Hirlart, who keeps a hotel on Aliso street, the father to have access to his boy at any time, ar.d the mother or. Sundays. AN UNEXPECTED FIND An Attorney Who Made a Haphaz ard Discovery Last evening Attorney Ear! Rogers was- too busy staking hand* with him self to do much else, and the reason for his Jubilant state of mind war briefly this: Mr. Rogers' Is ore of the attorneys in the estate of J. G. Drake, deceased, and represents the son. The widow has all along maintained that there was no will left by her husband and that he had deeded all of his property to her during his lifetime. Mr. Rogers wanted to know definitely how things stood and yester day Mrs. Drake had to answer a citation to show why she didn't produce the property. Instead of appearing in court, however, she left the state for Dakota, and thereby rendered the citation pro ceedings of no avail. A Mr. Carl Robertson did appear, however, ard stated to Mr. Rogers'tha: he represented Mrc. Drake and he thought that the attorney was dealing rather hardly with her. "See here," sad he, as he unfolded a document- "here's an agreement between all the parties that straightens the whole matter out." Mr. Rogers took the dociaient In his hand and rapidly surveyed It. At a glance he saw that it purported to be a will of the deceased, with the widow's signature as one of the witnesses. "Well, now," said Rogers, "I'll just gc and see that this is recorded right away." Robertson's eyes became as big as moons; he made a grab at the c'locumert and with it J.i his hand made off asquiel; as he could. Now that Mr. Rogers knows that a Will exists he is going to see that it is pro duced and filed. The puzzle is how ana by what mistake it came to be produce. i in such odd fashion. THE LEONIS TANGLE A Special Administrator Now Being Asked for There was another little scrap over the Leonis estate in department two yesterday. The disputes of that estate are of such a diversified and multifaii ous nature that somthing is popping up with great regularity almost every week. A party of the heirs represented by Major Bell wanted a special adminis trator appoin ted, and another party rep resented by Judge Brousseau and At torney Dunnigan didn't want anything of the kind. The former contended that there was a quantity of grain on th.- Elizabeth Lake property that would be lost if an administrator was not ap pointed, ard the latter with equal ve hemence urged that Judge Clark had made an order for the distribution of the estate. If the eistate was ready for distribution it couldn't be in need of a special administrator. As a fact, the minute order on the record did show that Judge Clark had made such an order, but Judge Allen Mt a delicacy in taking any action !u a case of which he knew nothing and JueVge Clark everything. After some spatting between counsel, the court appointed Judge Biysseau to see that the grain was gathered In, and then continueci the hearing until Judge Clark's return. IT WAS FORGED V. P. Rivera Gets Into Trouble Through High Living A complaint was sworn to yesterday ir. the district attorney's office, and a war rant issued from the township court for the arrest of V. P. Rivera. R. Wollner, who made the complaint charges that Rivera, who comes of good family, but Is credited with being a "high flyer" around town, passed upon him a check made out as follows: LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10. 1897. First National Bank of Los Angeles, Cal. Pay V. P. Rivera, or order, $15, fifteen dollars. S. P. ROWALD.

Daniel in the chair. The other directors present were Messrs'. W, A. Henry, M. A. Newmark, John 8. Thayer and Max Goldschmidt. The secretary reported that F. W. Wood, manager of the street railroad companies, had called to see him with regard to the request made at the last meeting for information as to the pos sibility of increasing the service by run ning cars after midnight. Mr. Wood stated that just at this time it would be impossible for the companies to increase the service in this way, but that they had the matter in mind and would meet the wishes of the public as soon as it is. practicable to do so. The committee on membership made its second report to the directors, and the following new members were elect ed, viz.: Althouse Fruit Co.. Christo pher & Sparks.caterers; East Side bank; Charles Gassen, wholesale ar.d retail butcher; L. W. Godin, boots and shoes; Wm. H. Hoegee. tents and awnings; Hoffman & Weller, hardware; Wm.

Within about sixty day they have securecj twenty-eight new members. The members of the comnii' tee und;r the leadership of the chair man, A. B. Cass, and the special com mittees assisting them, have been un tiring in their .efforts. They are still at work and hope to secure at least fifty new members before making their final report. The sixth annual session of the na tional irrigation congress will meet le. Lincoln, Neb., September 28, 29 and 30. next.

The members of the fenate and house of representatives ane' the governors of states and territories, together with accredited representativee of foreign nations, will be admitted as honorary members. The board of trade is in receipt of a request from the na tional executive committee to appoint a delegate to the congress, £nd.jthe mat ter was referred to the president with the request that he make the appoint ment. Last year Los Angeles had the honor of furnishing the president of the congress, C. B. Boothe, who was the del egate from the board of trade. BADLY MIXED Three Long Names on One Short Street The nomenclature of the streets of Los Angeles city is a peculiar combination of inconsistencies, but much good work has been done toward straightening out the Irregularities of the system. While this is true there is more work that needs attention. For instance, in the southwest portion of the city there is a street only four blocks long. At one end of the street is a sign stating that the street is named Athena. At the other end of the street is a sign giving the name of Hellman, and about midway is an other sign giving the name of Thirty sixth street. This street extends from Wesley avenue to McClintock. Now the facts of the case appear to be, as The Herald is reliably informed, that the real name of the street is Thirty-seventh. If a resident on that street should re turn from the city late at night, a little tired, could he And his way home? And if not, where would he go? When a res ident of that street subscribes for the Daily Herald, as many of them do, and should give his name and number of the street and one of the names, what is the poor carrier going to do when he gets down in that section of the city and finds a street with so many aliases? Could not the city superintendent of streets order all of these signs taken down and substitute therefor the cor rect name, or call it No Man's street, and thus give the residents of that sec tion and the paper carriers a chance to And themselves? A Proud Father Police Officer Fowie, acting clerk In the absence of Judge Bean, Is the proud and happy father of an eight-pound daugh ter which arrived at his home yesterday morning. A gratuitous distribution of cigars at the police station followed the happy event. Final Inspection J. H. Drain, street superintendent, will make final inspection of East Lake ave nue, between Aihambra and Henry streets, Thursday, August 12th at 9 oclock a. m. William Johnson, a laborer who was arrested when Intoxicated, was examined for Insanity yesterday, and upon recom mendation of the examiners ordered dis charged by Judge Allen. All prices of wall paper greatly reduced. A. A. Heltatrom, 324 South Spring street. KING'S BAD BREAK GOES ON A TEAR AND GETS KNOCKED OUT A Question Whether He Attempted Suicide or Was Going Gunning for Emil Harris Warren Ktog, notorious bunco steerer, sure thing gambler and all around con fidence man, is lying on a cot In the city jail with two ugly scalp wounds, one on each side of his head. On the blotter he is charged simply with drunkenness. King was found in a room at the Flor ence lodging house en South Main street. Shortly before noon a pistol shot wit heard in the room which he occupied, and the landlord rushed In to finei King lying upon the bed bleeding from an abrasion in the right temple. A smok ing revolver lay upon the lloor and tho odor of burnt powder filled the place. Notice was at once sent to the police department and Officer Shields and Ser geant Jeffries hurried off to the place to investigate. When they arrived the appearance of the room gave every indication of an at tempt at suicide. The revolver was picked up and found to contain one load ed cartridge antl two empty shells. King's finge-rsor his left hand were pow der burned, showing that he had evi dently grasperj the weapon with his left hand and discharged it with his right. The bunco man lay in a stupor, a con dition result irq rather from the quantity of liquor which he had consumed than from any other cause. He was loadeeS into the patrol wagon, and taken to the receiving hospital. Dr. Hagan attended his injuries, which were found to be slight, and nothing more than mere abrasions of the scalp, after which he was locked up In the jail. Just whether King meant to commit suicide or not is a question which to hare! to settle. He was drinking in a well known resort with a number of others late last night. When he got ready to go home he was pretty thoroughly un der the influence of liquor, and one of his companions offered him the use of his room In the Florence, as he did not expect to go home himself. King ac cepted the offer and, taking the key to the room, left. That was the last seen of him until yeirterday morning at about 11 oclock. when he made his appearance at Kmil Harris' private detective office on Court street. Harris was formerly chief of police in this city and the relations between him ar.d King have always been anything but friendly. The old 111-feelirg was recently revived since the arrest of "Rebel George," the gold brick swindler, who turned a trick here by which I. W. Lord and Geo. A. Bowren were relieved of iIO.OOO. Harris worked up the case in the interest of Bowren and has been very active in gaining evidence against "Rebel George," who is a bosom friend of King's. Harris and Kirg came down the stairs together and stopped in front of the ci gar stand at the corner of Court and Main streets. King asked Harris to walk into a saloon and have a drink. The detective refused, whereupon the bunco man slapped him in the face. With that Harris landed a stinging blow upon. King's chin and at the same time grabbed his cane away from him and began beating him over the head with it. The fighting was rapid but brief, and resulted in the ignominious defeat of the confidence man, who beat a retreat but returned ir. a few minutes. Harris was standing by the curb in front of the cigar stand mertiored before, when King stepped up behinc'i him and grabbed him by the throat. Harris struggled to get free and Anally got his revolver out of his pocket and began beating his as sailant over the head with it. Again the fighting was brisk, with odds decidedly in favor of Harris. Finally the two men were separated and one of King's friends got him into a buggy and drove away with him. On. reaching the Florence King got out and went up to the room where he hadi spent the night. Going to a bureau drawer he took out a 38-caliber revolv er. He was in a very bad humor, and it is not known whether he intended to kill himself with the weapon or expected to go gunning for Harris. In eitherea.se he macte blundering work of It. It is more than probable that he intended to start after Harris, and in fooling with the? gun to see if it was loaded accident ally discharged it owing to the befuejdled condition of his brain. A reporter saw King in jail yesterday afternoon. He was still so drunk that he could give no intelligent account of himself and ir. a rambling way tried to Grey. .. Hair . ..
