A HARD CASE Earlston, the Balloonist, Held to Answer IN A $2500 BAIL BOND THE STORY OF PRETTY LITTLE BEULAH MINOT Her Experience An Object Lesson to Some Girls, and Also to Barents. The Young Divorcee Richard Earlston, the "balloon ascen sionlst," as he has been described on the posters, has had his bubble reputa tion pricked and Is now in the Jail for lack of a J2500 bail bond td appear in the superior court and answer to the charge of rape upon pretty little Beulah Minot. The story of this escapade of the gay aeronaut will be yet fresh in the public memory. How a warrant was some time ago sworn out against him by the father of the girl, and a mnrriage cere mony only sufficed to settle the difficul ty. Then another wife—an earlier love of Earlston's —was reported as having materialized and the balloonist's offense against Beulah Minot appeared in an aggravated light and he was arrested at San Diego on the charge of rape. The exploitation of such a charge iir court does not afford a particularly edi fying spectacle, and yet there is an in terest attached to this case altogether beyond the mere curiosity of the mor bidly inclined. The experiences of Beu lah Minot are rather a sad commentary upon the disobedient habits of number? of boys and girls—habits which too often drift them into the ranks of the incor rigibles. On the other hand, if the action of the girl's parents, in handing their 15-year-old daughter in marriage to a man of whom they knew absolutely nothing. Is to be taken as a criterion, then surely the discipline to which Beu lah w as subjected must have been of a curiously contradictory character. When the case came up in the town ship court yesterday, Assistant District Attorney Williams prosecuted the case, with Mr. Alien as special counsel, and Mr. Murphy represented the defendant, Richard Earlston, who was> accompa nied into court by J. Baldwin, his man ager. Witnesses en both sides were ex cluded during the hearing of the case, and as a consequence some very pro nounced discrepancies were to be noted in the testimony. The first witness was Beulah Minot herself. She does not look a day older than she is, and is quite pretty and a de cided brunette. She answered to the name of Beulah Minot, but counsel for the defense was most punctilious in al ways addressing her, during her cross examination, as "Mrs. Earlston." No sooner had the girl taken her seat upon the witness stand than Eatiston's coun sel raised the point that inasmuch as the witness was the wife of the defendant she could not testify against him. Mr. Williams conceded the marriage on July 15th, but claimed that the crime alleged was perpetrated before that date, and the court held that in a case where a crime was committed against the per son of the wife then the law held that she could speak, and her testimony would be competent. That cleared the ground for action, albeit the allegations of bigamy faded into the far beyond. The girl began by giving her address on San Pedro street, and then proceeded to give the details of the eventful 29th of May, when she first met and was cor rupted by Earlston. "In the afternoon I went to the Fiesta park with three friends," said she, "and there was intro duced to Earlston. I accidentally met him again on the same evening at Sixth and Main streets, about 8 oclock. He stopped me and asked me where I was going, and I told him, and then he said he would walk with me. When we reached the park he asked me to sit down for a little, and then proposed 1 should accompany him to his room as it was so cold in the park. I refused to go, but he told me about some pictures he would like to show me, and coaxed me until I went with him On the way we went into the saloon at Sixth and Spring street and then went up to the room at 530H South Spring stret." An interruption took place at this time for Mr.. Allen, the attorney associated with the prosecution, charged Baldwin, the defendant's manager, with making faces at the witness and trying to catch her eye. The court was about to order Baldwin out of court, but in response to the question the witness stated that she had not noticed Baldwin at all. To render assurance doubly sure, Mr. Wll- Hams had the alleged offender sub poenaed, and then, ss a witness, he had to leave the court room. Resuming the thread of her narrative, the witness' said: "He (Earlston) locked the door of the room and put the key in his pocket. He explained a lot of pictures to me and then took advantage of me." That was as far as the girl could ge, for she broke down in a storm of tears. Her womanhood rebelled against tell- ing such a story as hers with the eyes of all In court riveted upon her. What ever her sins of omission or commission, her modesty asserted itself, and she sobbed as if her heart would break. Twice she essayed to speak, but failed, until she had recovered her calmness. Then she went on to tell how- Earlston had tried to persuade her to remain in his room all night, but the memory of the past again overcame her, and she stammered through her tears that she didn't want to tell; that she couldn't tell anything more. "Who's been talking with you?" que ried Mr. Williams, for it didn't suit the prosecution to have the main witness fall down. "If he didn't wrong you 1 want you to say so." The words were not spoken very gent ly, and Beulah confessed that the de fendant hael grievously wronged her. That he kept her in his room until 7 oclock in the morning. On cross-examination Beulah stated that the three friends with whom she went to Fiesta park on the day she met Earlston were Minnie Yansey, Mat Meeker and Fred Bogans, the prize fighter. When she left her home that evening about 8 oclock it was without her mother's knowledge, and she intend ed going to a friend's house on Sixth street, between Grand avenue and Hope street. The witness got somewhat tangled up when speaking of having told of her escapade with Earlston to other people, nor did she become much more lucid w hen taken in hand by Mr. Williams. "He kept you all night and you told no one; is that so?" inquired counsel in surprise. "Yes, s>ir." "Why?" "Because I wanted the matter kept a secret." "Were you afraid of your father and mother?" "Yes. sir." That concluded the examination of th 3 girl and she looked as if she was glad the trying ordeal was over. Her mother, Mrs. E. Minot. gave her testimony with deliberation, and yet the statements seemed so curious as con cerning her own daughter that they seemed slightly Incongruous. "After they had been married by Rev. Mr. Knighten," said witness, "Mr. Earlston called me into the back parlor and told me what he had done to my little girl on the 29th of May. that he had found her a sweet, pure girl, and that he loved her dearly and would be good and true to her. From that time he never did live with or support her." Being asked regarding her daughter going out upon the evening when she met Earlston. Mrs. Mlr.ot said that it was not ten minutes after she mißSed her until she hnd nil the officers on that heat looking for her. Early next morn ing—about 6-30-she found her hiding In the clothespress. and in a hysterical con dition. About three weeks after the mar riage Earlston come to the city from San Diego and went to live with a«g!ri named Mary "Wells at the St. Charles hotel. Having asked permission to visit his wife, who was ill In bed, he told Mrs. Minot that he only went with the Wells girl because he had got her into trouble: that he had to take her around and spend money on her so as to smooth her down and buy her off. That night it was understood that Earlston was to watch by the bedside of his wife, but in the early morning hours the mother heard him go out, and she arose to see how Beulah was faring. She found the bedroom door closed, and upon entering the rooms discovered that the two windows, that had been lowered for ventilation on account of the heat? had beer, raised and locked, the transom over the door had been closed, and the lamp had been turned up until the light was flaring out of the chimney. The defense objected to this testimony, but Mr. Williams contended that it was material. Inasmuch as it showed the in tention and attempt to kill the girl, and in so doing destroy all evidence of th; marriage. Which he claimed was a fraud ulent one. Justice Young wanted to know of Mrs. Minot why she consented to her 15-year old daughter marrying a man quite un known to her, and whom, up to the time of the ceremony, she had never seen. The question was easier asked than an swered. The witr*ss stated that when Detective Goodman reported to her that the girl had passed the night with Earl ston. she though it the best and wisest course to pursue to consent to the mar riage. Thomas F. Minot, the husband of the previous witness and father of Beulah, corroborated his wife in many particu lars. On the 29th of May he stated that he hunted around for his girl till nearly midnight and then he Informed the po lice officers on. the beat to keep a lookout for her. Next morning he saw Beulah in the clothespress about 8 oclock. Earl ston he never saw until the night after the marriage, in a saloon at the corner of Los Angeles and Third streets. Mr. Minot could give no other expla nation than his wife for having allowed his young daughter to marry an utter stranger. One or two other witnesses testified In the case, corroborating the main points of the story as told above. Taken in its entirety the narration' would seem like a yellow-backed penny dreadful, were it not a very modified relation of actual fact. LARK-ELLEN HOME A Tribute of Honor Made to Ellen Beach Yaw An application was yesterday filed In the superior court by the tyoard of trus tees of the news ond working boys' home, asking that the crturt permit that the name be changed to that of "Lark- Ellen News and Working Boys' Home." The petitioners named are as follows: Mrs. C. H. Bosbyshell, Mrs. E. A. For rester, Mrs. J. B. Brown, Mrs. F. C. Ca rey, Mrs. E. A. Watson, Mrs. J. S. Luck enbacb and Mrs. J. C. Murray, and th.c reason for the change of name Is em bodied in the following statement: "The said news and working boys' home of Los Angeles was organized and is conducted solely for charitable pur poses, and among other things has for its object the providing and caring for and sheltering the needy and homeless boys of Los Angeles, and providing them with physical, intellectual and moral training, to keep such boys as are try ing to help themselves, and to aid them in becoming useful and virtuous citi zens; and such society has been and now is dependent for Its support on the gifts and bequests of charitably disposed per sons. Second, the said home has within the last few weeks been the recipient of a considerable sum of money, being th" proceeds of a concert freely and gener ously tendered for the benefit of the home by that talented artiste and dis tinguished woman, Miss Ellen Beach Y-aw. Third, It is deemed proper and fit ting, and as a mark of recognition and appreciation by the officers of the home of the kindly interest evinced by Miss Yaw in the welfare of the said institu tion, and of her thoughtful and gener ous act In rendering to it such substan tial aid, that its present name be changed to that of "Lark-Ellen News and Working Boys' Home." THE YOUNG DIVORCEE The Husband Was a Terror and the Wife Kind—So She Said The further hearing in the Young di vorce suit was continued yesterday be fore Judge Van Dyke. It was very dull and very uninteresting. The defense put a number of witnesses upon the stand to prove the intemperate habits of the plaintiff anel med.ical testimony to show that Mrs. Young was justified in leaving her husband. That testimony, however, was discounted by the court holding that while something might be said in that regard for a wife temporarily refusing cohabitation, no evidence of that kind would suffice to justify a continued ab sence on the part of the wife. Late in the afternoon Mrs. Lulu Young testified in her own behalf and in sup port of her cross complaint. She was LOS ANGELES HERALD $ WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 25, 1897 not a good witness, although she was a i thoroughly self-possessed one. Every thing she said had. to be drawn frcm her by General Pierce by verbal force. Th? i sum total of her testimony was that her - husband was a habitual drunkardi and made the home a hell. At such times he I would so home, complain ct everything, swear roundly, grit his t**lh and look savage at his wife as if he would kill i her. He repeatedly shook his fist In her face and told her it was hard work to keep his hands off her and that there would be a traged.y in the house some day. On the other hand. Mrs. Young said she was "just as considerate as pos sible and made excuses for him for what he might say before the neighbors on the ground of his being sick." The cross-examination of Mrs. Young will take place this morning and. the re buttal testimony by plaintiff.

THE COMPLETE ANGLER Remarkable Fishing Party That Went Out at Long Beach A remarkable gathering of men went fishing last Saturday at Long Beach. The party was composed of S. K. Skeel, I a professional nurse; W. T. Williams, a druggist; Dr. Campbell, the coroner; Messrs. Kregelo & Bresee, undertakers, and the Re-v. Thompson of Boyle Heights, a divine. Here are all the requisites for a funeral, commencing with the original sickness. So the party divided' its work accord ingly. Skeel baited the hook, Williams supplying the bait; Dr. Campbell pulled the fish in, Messrs, Kregelo & Bresee pre pared- the finny cadavers for shipment to land, and the Rev. Thomson breathed a pious prayer at the close of the cere monies. The plan worked to perfection, for the crowd hauled in 940 pounds of fish as proof of the completeness of their party. IMMIGRATION COMMITTEE Met Yesterday at the Chamber of Commerce The committee on. immigration met yesterday afternoon at the chamber of commerce to confer with Judge Charles Silent in reference to a plan for pub lishing a pamphlet to be sent to northern ports and Alaska. There were present Messrs. Duque, Woolwine, O'Melveney, Kays and Gibbon. After considerable discussion, the com mittee agreed to suggest to the board of directors the advisability of purchas ing such a pamphlet and having it dis tributed widely through the northwest this fall. Trial of Fan Tan Players Ah Jake and Quong Quan, who were arrested by Officers' Hubbard and Me- Graw for playing fan tan, were tried be fore a Jury yesterday afternoon in Jus tice Morrison's court. The defendants' lawyers laid great stress upon the fact that the pollcemen.n were unable, through their ignorance of Chinese, to tell wheth er the Chinamen were betting on any particular color, or in fact were betting at all. To this end both Hubbard and McGraw were subjected to a most rigid examination. The case went over until today.

SPRING ST. Established 1875 TO MOVE HERE General Headquarters of the Santa Fe System AN IMPORTANT CHANGE TRANSFER TO BE MADE BY THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER Albuquerque Left on the Side Track. Los Angeles the Chicago of the Southwest Los Angeles Will on or about Septem ber 1 become the general headquarter? for all of the western divisions of the Santa Fe railroad syste m. The i 'repar ations' for the change are about complete and rome of the officers who will be af fected by It are now on their way to this city. For years the general officers of the company from which nearly all the business west of the Missouri river is controlled, have been locateel at Albu querque, N. M., and It is from that point that the offices are to be moved to Los Angeles. The change has been contem plated for several months and once be fore, nearly a year ago. it was-about to be made, but for some unknown reason the order was not issued until within the last month. It has been known here for weeks by the officers 1 of the company that the move was to be made, and prepara tions have been begun accordingly but the tnattef has not been made public and even now the officers will not give out just what changes in the offices will be caused thereby. The first Intimation here that such an important move was to be made was ob tained yesterday from a press dispatch from Denver. According to this dis patch General Superintendent A. G. Wells and his entire office force were reported to have been ordered to Los Angeles by Friday of this week, but In quiry at the offices here elicited the in formation that the change will not be completed befcre September 1. General Manager William G. Nevin, of the Southern California railway, was seen at his office yesterday and asked as to the effect of the change of offices. He stated that the matter was not as yet in such shape as to permit him to make public the full particulars. He ex pects additional orders and information in a few days when the official announce ment of the change will be made. From another source, however, it was learned that when the offices are moved, Los Angeles will bear the same relation to the western divisions of the Santa Fe system as the Chicago headquarters bear toward the eastern portion of the road. This will mean that the business of the system as far east from the coast as Albuquerque will be controlled and directed from this city. This portion of the system includes several divisions. On the main line west of Albuquerque there are two division headquarter."east of this city. One is at Gallup and has charge of the road from Albuquerque to Williams. The other is at the Needles and controls, the line from Williams to Barstow and thence to Mojave. The. Los Angeles offices look after the busi ness of the Southern California railway, which is also a part of the system. Just how many additional employes of the company the change of headquarters will bring to this city has not as l yet been decided upon by the company, but the number will not be large, as they will include only the office force of the general superintendent. Those who have been mentioned as coming are J. W. Walker, chief clerk; F. B. Sutton and E. C. Gott, stenographers; S. W. Saltmarsh, Mrs. W. A. Walker and Miss E. L. Robbins, car clerks. The report that J. H. Kuhns, general storekeeper, and his office force, are to be removed to Santa Barbara is believed here to be erroneous. While the storekeeper's office may be moved it is not considered probable that his head quarters will be at that point, but at some city which is the terminus of at least two divisions so that his work could be more easily performed.

Women do not Like to Tell a Doctor the Details of Their The reason why so many women suffer in silence from the multiple disorders con nected with their sexual system is that they cannot bear to broach the subject to a man, even if he is a physician. No one can blame a modest, sensitive woman for this reticence. It is unneces in these times, however, for a woman es to all afflicted women a most generous •Irs. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass., bids every ,vho suffers to write to her and confide nptom that annoys her, and she will give cc without charge, and that advice is >on the greatest experience ever possessed >r woman in this country, and extends over of twenty-three years, and thousands upon Isof oases. Why suffer in silence any longer, my sister, when you can gethelpfor the asking? Don't fear to tellher every thing. The ense of Mrs. Colony, whose Jetter to Mrs. Pinkham we publish, is an illustration of the good to be received from Mrs. Pinkham's advice; here is a woman who was sick for years and could get no relicf —at last in despair she wrote to Mrs. Pinkham —received in return a prompt, sympathetic und inter ested reply. Note the result and go and do likewise. " I was troubled with such an aching in my back and hips, and I felt so tired all the time, and had for four years. For the last year it was all I could do to drag around. I would have such a ringing in my head by spells that it seemed as though I would grow crazy. I ached from my shoulders to my feet and was very nervous. 1 was also troubled with a white discharge. I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., received a prompt reply and followed her advice, and now I have no backache and begin to feel as one ought; in fact, I never felt bet ter in ten years than Ido now.
