FOR HIS LIFE
Ed McCamish's Trial Com
mences Today
SANTA MONICA'S DULL SEASON
ALLEGED TO ACCOUNT FOR
THREE FAILURES
Damage Suits Against Railroads Set
tled—Parents Surrender Their
Children to Others
•yd McCamlsh will be placed on trial for
his life today in department one, on an
Indictment charging him with murder
ln the first degree for having shot and
killed McCoy Pyle. McCamlsh was a
deputy under the man whom he la
charged with murdering. The tragedy
occurred April 24 last, at Castiac switch,
near the Ventura county line. The two
men had not been on friendly terms for
some time before the killing, and it was
due to this that McCamish is now
charged with the crime. They had had a
dispute over the division of fees ar.d other
trouble. Shortly before the date men
tioned McCamish announced that his
ED M'CAMISH
room had been, robbed of a number of ar
ticles of value. Soon afterwards he told
Pyle that he had discovered a clew to
the thieves and requested him to accom
pany him to arrest them. To this the
constable agreed, and the two men went
to Castiac switch. There late on the
night of April 24, McCamish claims' they
were approached by two men whom he
believed to be the thieves. He says Pyle
covered them while he went forward to
handcuff them, when one of them drew
a revolver and fired, shooting Pyle
through the head. The two men then
escaped. That is McCamish's story of
the killing, but the position of Pyle's
body when others reached the place;
the fact that his head was powder
burned; the previous feeling between the
two men and the inability of other offi
cers to find any trace of the two sup
posed thieves, led to the belief that no
such two men as McCamish mentioned
existed, and he was accordingly arrest
ed. The prosecution will endeavor to
prove that Pyle was killed while he slept
and that McCamlsh killed him. The trial
Is expected to corisume nearly or quiti
a week.
AN AGREED JUDGMENT
Unusual Ending of What Appeared
to Be an Important Suit
The suit of Lizzie M. Stone et al.
against the Redondo Railroad company,
in which plaintiff demanded $25,000
damages on account of the killingof her
husband by a train owned and operated
by the defendant company, was brought
to a sudden termination in department
four yesterday afternoon when practi
cally by agreement a judgment for
plaintiff in the sum of $387.50 was ren
dered. Mrs. Stone, who also sued as
guardian for Alice I. and A. L. Stone,
her minor children, was represented by
T. E. Gibbon, while the company's in
terests were looked after by Borden &
Carhart. An agreed statement of facts
was presented to the court, and the
statement was made that the defendant
agreed to the judgment in the sum men
tioned. That judgment was then ren
dered and each party paid its own costs
and upon the signing of the judgment
the case was finally disposed of for the
Judgment was satisfied at once.
The basis of the suit was the accident
al killing of Geo. M. Stone on Catalina
avenue, Redondo, December 17, 1893. The
complaint alleged that while he was
walking along the tracks of the company
a train approached him from behind at
a dangerous rate of speed, and without
any lookout being maintained on It, and
struck and killed Stone. Suit was fll3d
December 14,1895, and the company filed
a demurrA- to the complaint March 9,
1896, but the demurrer was everruled.
On April 24, 1896, an answer was filed in
which it was asserted that Stone was

THREE FAILURES
Santa Monica People Who Found the
Season Too Dull
Hannah O. Trimble, known as Mrs.
M. M. Trimble, through Tanner & Taft,
her attorneys, filed a petition In insol
vency in the superior court yesterday af
ternoon, praying that she be adjudged
an insolvent debtor and therefore ex
empt from all claims, debts, liabilities'
and demands in accordance with the in
solvent act of 1895. The petitioner la a
resident of Santa Monica, w-here she
has been interested in the Santa Monica
hotel. The schedlule of liabilities and
assets, accompanying the petition shows
a total Indebtedness of $3024.13, divided
among some twenty or more creditors.
The scheduled assets consist of house
hold furniture valued at $ v OOO, which is
mortgaged for nearly that amount In
favor of Robert A. Marsh, and also the
lease of the hotel property, which is
stated' to be worth $250.
Later in the day Robert A. Marsh filed
a petition in insolvency through the same
attorneys. His liabilities' are stated to
be $1162, ar.d ten creditors'are mentioned
in the schedule. He is also a resident of
Santa Monica ar.d. his failure is supposed
to have been precipitated l by that of
Mrs. Trimble. Among the assets there
!s r.o realty, but the mortgage of Mrs.
Trimble on household goods is listed.
This' is for $1900, but $430 of it is assigned
to Maier & Zobelein. In addition he
holds a note of Mrs. Trimble for $375, and
has in his possession bills receivab:e for
$150, making the toal assets $2925.
George A. Pleasanee andi F. R. Pleas
ance of Santa Monica, doing business
under the firm name of Pleasiance & Co.,
filed a similar proceeding, both as a firm
and separately as Individuals. They
have been engaged In the furniture busi
ness and the assignment is said to have
been caused by the dullness of trad* and
their inability to realize fundsfrom their
stock. The liabilities are statedi to be
$1429.99. an* the ass'e-ts $2700. The latter
are made up of a stock of furniture and
book accounts. There are twenty cred
itors.
CHILDREN GIVEN UP
Pathetic Proceedings in Which Par-
ents Surrender Offspring
The unusual spectacle of a father and
mother parting with their own children
and transferring to another couple ail
their legal interest in and control of
their offspring was presented in depart
ment one yesterday afternoon. WOlfort
Weldon Lyon and Ida May Lyon, his
wife, appeared before Judge Smith and
voluntarily surrendered all legal claim
that they had upon their two children,
Roy. aged about 4 years, and an un
named baby, to Gilbert T. and Alice M.
Smith. The necessary order of court
was soon prepared and the transfer was
made in due form, without any explana
tion of the action being made. I! Is un
derstood, however, that Mr. and Mrs.
Smith have long been friends of the
Lyon family, and being childless- they
determined to adopt two children. They
are able to give the children the best
possible education, while Mr. Lyon is
not sufficiently well blessed with this
world's- goods to carry the education as
far as he would wish. It was therefore
their love for their children and their
desire to better their condition that led
the parents to place them where they
know they would be properly cared" for.
Brief as l were the proceedings, there
was about the matter an element of sup
pressed pathos-. The children played
around the court room while their pa
rents were affixing their signatures lo
ihe papers which transferred the little
ones to the keeping of others. There was
nothing unusual in the form of the pa
pers, only the usual obligations of guar
dianship being assumed by Mr. and Mrs.
Smith.
SUITS FOB WAGES
The Wright Association Made De
fendant by Former Employes
Two suits were filed against the Wright
association yesterday by former em
ployes who pray judgment for amounts
alleged' to be due them as wages for
services rendered. The first action was
brought by J. A. Smith, who, In his pe
tition recites that he was employed by
the diefendent company from January 4
until August 12, and worked 109*4 days
during that time. His pay during that
time was $2.50 per day for twenty days
and' $2 for the balance of the time, mak
ing a total of $228.51. Of this $60.57 is
alleged to be due and unpaid andi judg
ment is asked in that amount in addition
to costs andi $100 attorneys' fees.
T. G. Barnett, another employe of the
association, sues for $71.35 alleged! to be
due as wages out of $162 which he is said
lo have earned. He also asks for $100
additional for attorneys' fees and for
his costs.
MORTGAGED FUBNITUBE
Is Hade the Basis of a Suit Against
Several Defendants
R. E. Muncy, Mrs. S. E. Muncy, H. A.
Burgess, Mrs. Lou Burgess, I K. WMlson
and Fred A. Walton were made defend
ants in a suit filed yesterday in the su
perior court by S. A. Cook, in which plain
tiff seeks to enforce the payment of a
promissory note for $250 and foreclose a
chattel mortgage on certain described
LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER i, (897
household goods. The note was executed
by the first na.ned defendants ln favor
of Mr. Cook December 6, 1895, and was
to bear Interest at the rate of 5 per cent
per month. It was secured by a mort
gage on certain personal effects. After
the execution of the note Muncy and
wife sold the goods to Burgess and wife,
subject to the note and mortgage. They
in turn transferred It to Wilson,, and he
to Walton. Cook now sueseach of them,
as they have retained an interest in the
goods, which were still farther Incum
bered in the several transfers. He de
mands Judgment for $292.24, the note
with interest, and for the further sum of
$350 as costs, attorney's fees, etc.
FOR THE DEFENDANT
Wolf skill Loses His Suit Against the
Los Angeles Railway
In department four, before Judge Van
Dyke, the entire time of the court yes
terday was consumed in the trial of the
damage suit of Milton Wolfskin against
the Los Angeles Railway company. Late
in the afternoon judgment was rendered
in favor of the defendant. The case will
not be appealed.
The plain.tiff was formerly a flagman
at First and Alameda streets, in the em
ploy of the Southern Pacific Railroad
company. He Is 80 years of age, and is
apparently quite Infirm, as he cannot
walk without crutches. For his cause
of action he averred that on July 30,1895.
he was standing in the middle of the
street intersection mentioned, with his
flag in his hand to warn passersby not
to cross the tracks, as a train was ap
proaching. Several teams were waiting
for the train to pass, and as it approached .
one of the teams, belonging to the defend
ant, became frightened and started to
run. Wolfs'kill was run over and sus
tained a fracture of the leg and other
severe injuries, the effects of which will
be permanent. He claimed that the dri
ver of the team was careless and negli
gent and could have avoided the acci
dent. He demanded $15,000 damages
The plaintiff failed to prove the care
lessness alleged, however, and the court
rendered the finding stated.
Released From Jail
F. T. Harris and Harry Jenkins com- 1
pleted their sentence of forty days in
jail for contempt of court yesterday,
and were released from custody. They

who after Saving been served with sub- 1
poenaed to appear and testify, went into •
hiding and were only found after great
difficulty by the officers. They were
first sentenced to fifty days each, but
as they were confined in jail for eight
daye before being sentenced, Judge
Smith gave them the benefit of ten days. 1

superior court against Clara Blackman,
administratrix of the estate of Armir.da
McCauslan.d, to perfect a title and secure
an equitable partition of certain real
estate in which both claim to have an

Would License Cats
"I have looked Into the subject enough
to satisfy me," said Judge Urquhart of
Georgetown, "that cats should be li
censed the same as dogs. They are much
more of a nuisance In every way than
dogs, are kept in larger numbers and
much more revenue could be secured
than Is received from the dog license
tax. There may be some reason for
keeping dogs, though I am not sure
about it, but there are no reasons what
ever for keeping cats. A dog howls now
and then at night time during certain
changes of the moon, and is to that ex
tent a destroyer of sleep, and thereby a
nuisance. Cats, however, make ten
times the racket that dogs do and seem
to keep It up, change of the moon or not.
As far as hydrophobia is concerned, cats
cause it as frequently as do dogs, for,
after all, it is a rare, though terrible
thing. I do not And that cats have ever
been licensed or tagged the same as
dogs, though I cannot understand why
not. I can furnish plenty of law on the
subject, for all the law that is behind the
dog license Is with equal force behind
the proposition to license cats. The peo
ple of Georgetown seem to run toward
owning and keeping cats. Every house
has one, and some houses have a dozen.
The noise that this class of nuisances
make is more distressing, more pain
producing and more annoying and in
tolerable than any made by any combi
nation of the other nuisances."—Wash
ington Evening Star.
American Plans for Paris Exposition
Moses P. Handy, special commissioner

was chief clerk of the bureau of awards
of the world'sColumblan exposition. The
New York office will be ln charge of Col.

Descent From a Balloon by a Bicycle
A parachutist, known as "Professor"
Anthony, has accomplished a sensational
descent at Luton by dropping from a
height of 3000 feet, while "pedalling" a
bicycle. This Is said to be the first in
troduction of the bicycle Into this haz
ardous kind of exhibition. Signor Bai
lenl of the Crystal Palace, took the bal
loon up with the "professor" dangling
below the car, and when an elevation of
3000 feet had been reached he gave the
signal to drop. The parachute opened
by an apparatus workeciby "peddalllng"
the bicycle and the "profecwor" after
wards stated that he dropped fifty feet
before it opened properly. During that
time he had to "pedal" hard. The de
scent was very slow on account of the
parachute being rather too large and the
parachutist was carried by the wind to
some farms near CadcMngton, from which
place she rode back to Luton.—Pall Mall
