IS CLOSING IN Strong Case Against Hen- Shaw and Graham FOR HOLDINQ UP CHINAMEN DEFECTIVE COMPLAINT KNOCKS A CASE OUT Gllbert Young Withdrew His Plea and Elects to Take Chances—Suit for Commissions The prosecution closed yesterday morning in the case against Henry Hen shaw and Frank Graham. Deputy Dis trict Attorney James put In quite a strong case against the defendants, and the testimony of Pete Ayala, a young fellow 19 years, who testified at the pre liminary examination but who has since disappeared, seemed to complete tbe chain of evidence. This particular witness' testimony was objected to strongly by Attorrey Shlnn for the defense, and when it was first offered, on Monday, Judge Clark for the time ruled it out on the ground that inasmuch as the prosecution had not had a search made in the San Ga briel canyon, where report bad it Ayala had hidden away, they were rot entitled to have the testimony read to the Jury. On Monday night the deputy at Azusa went six miles up the canyon, but Ayala could not be found, the search result ing In a failure to find him as in the case of half a dozen other clues that had been followed. On this showing the court yes terday admitted the youth's testimony. Pete Ayala boarded with Henry Heir thaw and his family, Frank Graham also being a boarder. The witness, In his transcribed testimony, went on to tell how he was sent over to the Chinese camp by the defendants on the day pre ceding the robbery to see if the China men, had been paid off. Upon returning he informed them that it was so. Con tinuing, he circumstantially related what took place and how he saw one of the defendants enter the camp, and that they discovering that he had knowledge of their escapade gave him $20 from the proceeds of their plundering expedition to keep his mouth shut.- AH of these details corroborate the testimony given by G. V. Brighton., th-i man who did the detective work, and wormed himself Into the confidence of the defendants. He learned from them the same facts narrated by Ayala as well as others that have grooved in with the testimony of other witnesses. In the afternoon the witnesses put forward for the defense testified mainly to the time when the defendants hired a rig from the stable on Aliso street and returned it. The tendency of this> evi dence was to show that it would not have been possible for the defendants to have been, ir Azusa at the time alleged by the prosecution. The further hearing will be continued today. COTTAGE ON INSTALLMENTS A Trio of Worthies Held for Stealing Barley Felix Runge, John D.Walker and John Powell were arrested about a week ago for having stolen twenty-three sacks of barley from Tom Biggart at Moneta, a little place not far from Redondo. John Powell pleaded guilty ln the township court to the charge, and his companions were yesterday tried before Justice Young and a jury and found guilty of the offense charged. Runge is the ingenious individual who realized the imbecility of paying rent for a home when he might have a place of his own. He had a horse and light wagon and in his peregrinations about the city he nipped up any unconsidered trifle he found lying around loose, and which might prove of service to him in his house building. He stole a bundle of •hlngles here, a keg of nails there, some pieces of scantlir.g from one place and some other building material from an other, until as a result of his Irrepressi ble eagerness to be a householder he had erected a trim little cottage In East Eos Angeles. But before his homestead was completed he was called to time and served 100 days In the city jail. The defendant Powell, after entering his plea of guilty some days ago, was held without sentence in order that be Wight testify against his companion. Yesterday he told on the witness stand •II the circumstances of the robbery, ■nd told also how and to whom It was •old in East Los Angeles. His story re ceived corroboration from several other witnesses, and this morning he himself will come up forsentence. The time for sentencing the two de fendants who had selected to take their chances of trial had been set for four ocloek. At that hour Attorney Foley, counsel for the defense, made a motion tn arrest of judgment. He pointed out tbat the complaint alleged that the bar ley belonged to one Tom Blg gart, while the evidence disclosed the fact that one Lennon was the owner of tbe grain. Deputy district attorney con ceded that Deputy Cily Attorney Cham bers had drawn up the complaint rather inartlstically, but notwithstanding he urged that the law did not require the ownership of stolen property to be set forth but for one thing—to show that it belonged to someone other than the de fendant charged. Justice Young evi dently thought that was good law and overruled the motion. Then again Mr. Foley bobbed up with a motion for a new trial on the ground that the verdict was contrary to law •nd contrary to the evidence, etc., etc. Counsel showed that while the verdict of the Jury found tbe defendants guilty of larceny from Biggart the evidence undeniably showed that Lennon was the owner of the grain. If this case was disposed of Lennon could swear to • new complaint and bring the men to trial twice for the same charge. Mr. McComas interrupted counsel to •ay that he would not oppose him on his motion, informing the court at the same time that he was rather afraid of the complaint as drawn and he would rath er have the matter disposed of than chance an appeal. Thereupon Justice Toons granted the motion for a new trial, instructing the district attorney to tnm • new complaint bs this morning. Doubtless when the men are brought to trial on the new complaint the plea of twice in jeopardy will be raised and mayhap they will not go to jail after all. ON TECHNICAL POINTS An Opinion in Which the Mt. Wilson Affairs Figure An opinion, was handed down, yester day by Judge York in the important and I complicated suit Of W.Rlgby, jr., again-1 T. S. C. Lowe. Albeit the matter is rath er technical it is not without general in- i terest, for the reason that assignments to third parties for the purpose of main taining action are becoming ordinary occurrences. "In this action." says Judge Tork, "I hold that the assignment of the chose in action purporting to be made by the General Elet- j trie company and purporting to be! signed by said General Electric com-1 pany by Thomas Addison, such assign. ment being for the purpose of enabling plaintiff to maintain this action there-, on, for and ln behalf of said General j Electric company, was void, In that j such assignment was r.ot in the ordin- : ary course of business of said company, j and the said Addison had no special au thorlty to make said assignment. "In his testimony, upon which it !s; contended the authority for the assign- | ment ls shown, Addison, testifies that he holds the position of local or district manager for said company for what is known as the coast district, and has held it continuously since the organization of the company in May or June, 189 D. He says that he put the claim in ques tion, into the hands of Pickins, Fulton & Company for collection, and assigned it to W. Rigby, jr., the plaintiff in this ac tion. The assignment is endorsed 'Gen eral Electric company, Thomas Addi son, district manager.' He further says that probahly- half or two-thirds of the bills of the company are paid direct at his office; that the remainder are sent to the ger.eral office ln Schenectady. Ht says, further, that his company has adopted the plan of making all oollec tlons at Schenectady for business done through the districts and that plan is followed very closely for all the offices except the Pacific coast office. The plan is varied very much here for the reason that it is so far away. But the large proportion of the collections are made in his office. '.'This does not show any regular coursv of' business on the part of the General Electric company of transferring the title to its choses in action to strangers to enable them to maintain actions for the collection of the same, The author ities cited by plaintiffs' counsel sustain him in the proposition that a general agent can endorse negotiable paper to a bank to enable the bank to receive pay ment of the same. That is the usual and ordinary course of business. It is true that a practice is somewhat ln vogue of making assignments of chores in action to third parties to enable those third par ties to maintain actions instead of pros ecuting the action in the names of the real owners. But that practice has not become a general one; neither is< It usual or ordinary. And owing to the danger to which such a practice would subject debtors who might, by reason of such a practice, be required to pay a claim twice, it 19 to be hoped that the practice will not become a general one. A judg ment in such an action is not an estoppel to an action, by the alleged assignor or. :he same claim, except on proof de novo of the assignment, and In such subse quent action, the burden is on defendant to prove the assignment. So dangerous a practice should not be extended be yond its present questionable status. Inasmuch as the assignment of the claim due to the General Electric company to the plaintiff is not valid he cannot main tain this action as to that claim. "As to the second cause of action, th? assignment of the claim to plaintiff is shown to be valid, but in the second cause of action there is no allegation, except by inference, that the bill of ex change, so called, has not been paid. All the allegations of non-payment that I find are that the defendant has failed neglected and refused to pay the fame. Notwithstanding this' allegation the debt may have been paid by the drawers of the bill of exchange or by some other person. On the authority of O'Hanloti Vs. Denvlr, 81 Ca1.62, I shall hold that th» complaint is good against a general de murrer or motion for a non-isuit. Thes? are the only questions upon which any doubt should exist. "After plaintiff had Introduced hi? evidence and rested, defendant moved a' non-suit and stated that.s-hould the non suit be denied, he would submit the case on plaintiff's evidence. Motion for non suit is therefore denied and judgment ordered to be entered for plaintiff for the amount claimed In his second cause of action and that plaintiff take nothing on his first cause of action." WITHDREW HIS PLEA A Defendant by Permission of the Court Takes His Chances An Information was filed yesterday In Department one by the district attorney against Gilbert Young and William Hoffman. The men are charged with having broken into the Eagle stables on Broadway sometime ago, and after beat ing and choking one of the employes, who slept in the office and acted as watchman, robbed the place of some money and miscellaneous articles. Yesterday the defendant Young waived time and pleaded guilty to the charge, but upon an outline of the facts being given to Judge Smith the latter stated that It was more serious than he had supposed, and whether a plea of guilty was entered by the de fendants or they were convicted by a Jury the sentence must of necessity be a fairly heavy one. This being so the court permitted Young, if he saw fit, to withdraw his plea of "guilty." The de fendant thereupon did withdraw his plea and will stand trial with his com panion. In telling of his connection with the case, Young maintained that he did not enter the stables and assist in the burg lary. He conceded, however, that af ter the crime had been committed Hoff man came to his room, only three or four doors from the stables, and roused him out of his bed. He got up ar.d Joined his friend in having a good time upon the proceeds of the robbery. FOB COMMISSIONS DUE E. S. Ayers Trying to Gain a Second Verdict The old time suit of E. S. Ayers against Albert Thomas, doing business as the Union iron works, has again come to trial in department three, before Judge York. The suit is or* to recover 11438.63, with interest, costs, etc. Upon the pre vious trial of the case a verdict was re turned ln favor of the plaintiff, but the defendant appealed tbe case to the »v LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 22, 1897 preme court, and it was remanded for retrial. Ayers was salesman, solicitor and col lector in the employ of the defendant, and the claim arose in the course of his business, being amoun.ts alleged to be due as commissions. The evidence tak en upon the previous trial is being al lowed to go In by stipulation as It stan is ln the transcript, and there being very little additional testimony the trial of the case will be much curtailed. "NICK" GOT IT And It Took the Jury Just Ten Mln- utes to Do It It took thejtlry in Department one just ten minutes to return a verdict of burg- I iary In the first degree against "Nick" ! Codo. The defendant, brake in some of th? departments in a rooming house on, ! East First street and stole a number of I personal effects belonging to the room j ers. All these articles were identified and there is no doubt whatever that the i verdict returned exactly fits the case. Thursday was the day set by Judge Smith for sentence. New Suits Filed I F. G. Calkins ar.d Rosamond A. Cal j kins vs. The Equitable Building and Loan association—A suit to compel de fendants to transfer two certificates of j stock upon its books to plaintiffs, and to ! issue new certificates or pay the sum of $1552; being value of the shares. Thomas Walls vs. A.R. Maines—A suit to recover $554.64 for goods delivered. Charlotte Pitman vs. George Buck and Bank of Whittier—A suit to recover $306 on a note, with 12 per cent Interest from August 20, 1896, attorneys fees and costs, and decree of sale against lot 5, block 28, in the town of Whittier. May Steam in Peace The steam tug Tiger Is released from the libel placed on her by C. J. Smith receiver of the Oregon Improvement company and the Pacific Coast Railway company, an order to that effect having been macie yesterday in the United States district court. The order also releases the claimant of the tug, C. K. Eldrldge. The order was granted on the petition of the attorneys for both sides, all differences having been adjusted out of the court room. The Divorce Mill The application ijf Alice Wlxon for a decree divorcing her from Reuben Wixon, on the ground of desertion, was heard yesterday by Judge York. The evidence was indefinite, the wife not knowing why her husband had left her. The cas? was continued for further evi dence. Court Notes The matter of the guardianship of Dorothy E. Creede, the infant daughter of the late Nicholas Creede, was con tinued' yesterday In the probate court to the 28th inst. In the friendy suit of Rowley against Hervey and Dr. Lindley o quiet title, the defendants filed disclaimer, and Judgment was yesterday given by Judge Allen for plaintiff. The jury serving ln department five was discharged from furher duy by- Judge Shaw. A new panel will be se lected from sixty Jurors ordered re turnable on September 29th.

WON'T PEACH Tough Youngsters Refuse to Say Who Made Them Drunk The two boys. Jim Hayes and Tom Garrity, who were sent into the police station Monday from Adobe street ln a condition of unconscious drunkenness, were brought before Justice Morrison yesterday morning. Both lads are un der 16 years of age. They pleaded guilty and were sentenced, Garrity, the older of the two, to ten days in Jail, and Hayes to two days. Garrity said that he was working in a fruit cannery and pleaded for mercy, as he would lose his. job if he did not go back to work at once. Justice Morrison decided to suspend sentence during good behavior. Hays was unable to think of any good reason why he should not go to Jail and will have to serve his time. The officers are puzzled over the ques tion of where the lads secured the liquor which they drank. One of them claimed that they obtained it from the debris of the Star saloon on Alameda street which was burned out Sunday night. The statement is not believed and an effort will be made to find out who the parties furnishing the liquor really are. Wheat On June 26 wheat sold at 63%. It has since sold at $1.02%. Difference, 39%, or $3,975 on 10,000 bushels. One hundred dollars would have made this amount by our system of Joint Investment accounts slnce June 26.

THE FIRST TRIP MANY MERCHANTS VISITED SAN PEDRO YESTERDAY To See the Steamer Albion, Which Takes ths First Shipment of Goods to Mexico One hundred members of the Mer chants and Manufacturers' association, among them many of the most promi nent business men of Los An geles, accepted the invitation of the Terminal Railway company yesterday and Journeyed to San Pedro in a special train. In the cars provided for the guests, there were at tentive waiters presiding over huge punch bowlsand piles of succulent sand wiches, which beguiled the excursionist upon the way. The cause cf the Junket was the leav ing of the steamer Albion for Mexican ports. This boat is the Columbus of Cal- i ifornla-Mexlco trade, and her initial trip means a good deal more than appears at first glance. By strenuous efforts the Terminal officials and the Merchants and Manufacturers' association suc ceeded in making San Pedro the north ern terminus of the line, instead of San Diego, as was first proposed. The mer chants and manufacturers of Los Ange les are going to use this boat as a vehi cle for spying out the land, and have sent emissaries to report upon the con dition of trade in Mexico, the class of goods desired, the prices the Mexicans will pay, the terms of credit, in fact, to make a thorough investigation of trade, so that much of it may be diverted to Los Angeies. Consenut n llj .Hi any of the merchants and manufacturers are personally Interested ln the outcome of the trial trip of the Albion. All the visilors showed a commenda ble spirit of curiosity regarding the ton nage and general appurte nances of the ship, peering Into cubby holes, and as suming nautical attitudes upon various portions of the vessel's framework. A party, headed by Max Meyberg,climbed on the forcdeck and were photographed. Captain Milton Thwing, who Is In com mand, was kept busy answering ques tions, and proudly pointing out his own cabin, a roomy apartment about 4xli. Captain Thwing displayed an ingenious arrangement whereby, when he retired, he could put his head out of one port hole, and his feet out of the other, arid thus always keep his extremities cool. This he considers a great point in the climate he is seeking. He also passed around a box of Mexican cigars, the receptacle apparently having been struck by a cyclone when he sadly re turned it to the diminutive cabin. The Los Angeles firms who have con tributed the seventy tons of freight shipped from the Terminal wharf are Wlgmore & Co., Craig. Stuart & Co., Kerckhoff. Cuzner Lumber company, and Baked iron works. The shipment includes various kinds of furniture, groceries, wagon and buggy material, and lumber, both rough and finished. In addition, Maier & Zobeleir\ Simon Maier, M. A .Newmark & Co., and the Los Angeles Soap company, (Forthmann & Bergen), have sent a representative to look up the trade conditions from Mazatlan to San Benito. The ship Albion will touch at the var ious ports along the coast, Ensenada. San Qulntln, where 1600 sacks of flour will be shipped, Mazatlan, Montenillo, Acapulco, Salina Cruz and San Benito, being the most important places, be sides stopping at a number of small In termediate stations. The round trip, it is expected, will occupy about thirty-six days. On the second trip, several of the Los Angeles merchants expect to go to Mexico, though this depends entirely upon the reports brought back to each firm by its agent. EAST SIDE NOTES Surprise and Birthday Parties—Notes and Personals A pleasant surprise party was ten dered Miss Erne Randolph at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Browning on Hancock street last evening.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE SENSES Some Have Degenerated and Some Improved Since the Early Ages It is a very curious question, especial ly if the question include the first ani mals created as well ns the first men, whether there be any difference between sight, hearing and smell in those early days ana at the present time. Smell was one of the most Important senses then, for It aroused appetite, enabled the animals to seek and llnd their mates and to track their prey, and it gave them warning of a foe's approach or presence. With man now it Is of only third rate or fourth rate Importance. The organ of smell, among some of the drat creatures, was not near the end of the snout or nose, but near the brain, and was v.'< 11 --pafltJed or cushioned with fat, ar.d pro tected by a tender skin, or by scales overlapping each other. Hut It was not more keen or more delicate then than it Is now, especially in our hunting dogs. Cats, too —and these are among the later animals—have this sense in great per fection; A cat has what ls called tho homing instinct, and If carried awuy from home in the dark It car. return by precisely the same road. It Is said that because every field, ditch, village or house leaves its own odor in just the right order on the cat's brain, like a succession of pictures, and animal smells its way back as we would see outs. The organ of smell seems to com municate with the memory, for the scent of a flower will sometimes bring back to a grown man the scene associat ed with it in his childhood, and a thous and other subtle thoughts and feelings, so that he seems literally carried back into his past life. The first creatures knew nothing of fragrance. The sweet-smelling flowers were not then in existence; besides, their brains were too small to enjoy the deli cate pleasures of sweet odors. Hearing was comparatively poor with the first animals, for often an external car was lacking. The outside ear not only protects the- delicate nerves within, like a hoori, but also gathers or collects sounds. A man of defective hearing Instinctively puts his hand behind his ear for this purpose. Birds that have no external ear can easily be surprised by night and taken, while their acute vision shows their every movement by day. The savage races had little idea of music. They liked noises as children like drums and horns. The savages on the midway plalsanee had great delight in their native music, which was discord to our ears. It required larger brains and finer training to have the full de light in melody and harmony that our musicians now possess. The eye also in the gigantic creatures of early periods was osmetlmes rudimentary, though again It was of large size and protected by a ring of bony plates Instead of the lovely silken eyelashes that protect and adorn the human eye. now. In some of those lizard-like animals that burrowed in the mud there were three pairs of eyelids, one of them transparent, so that the animal might see through It closed. It Is said that early writers, like Homer, speaks of very few colors, chiefly red. or "purple," as they called It then. En joyment of beauty, of graceful curves and lines and proportion or of harmon ious and varied colors and their delicate tints belongs to a later state of cultiva tion, a more developed brain, than most of the early races knew. —Philadelphia Times.
