LAWYER'S FEE Being Unpaid the Client Is Committed THE SEA MARRIAGE QUESTION JUDGE ALLEN AGAIN TO PASS UPON THEIFACTS How They Dealt Out Justice in the Early '50's—W. Avery Goes to States Prison to Be Cured It la perhaps a debatable question as to what extent an attorney owes alle giance to his client. It is an old, worn out fiction that lawyers are only feed and never paid. Nowadays the al mighty dollar cuts a very important fig ure in helping an attorney to arrive at a decision as to whether he will or will not undertake a defendant's defense. At the same time attorneys, as a general rule, are liberal in the interpretation of the duty, and many a defendant re ceives for nothing the time end labor that If he were a man In good circum stances would cost him a large sum. Soma time ego two men. named Ash mead and Wilson, were tried for burg lary, committed out at University. At torney W. T. Blakeley defended Ash mead, and when his client was found guilty and sentenced to a term in the , state's prison, counsel announced his Intention of appealing the case. Judge Smith granted a certificate of probable cause and that had the effect of staying the carrying out of the Judgment of the court. Ashmead remained In thecounty Jail while his counsel. Attorney Blakeley, drew up the necessary papers and filed the appeal in the supreme court. The matter has now been in the supreme court for some time, but Mr. Blakeley came before Judge Smith and represent ed that his client desired the withdrawal of the writ of probable cause, and it was so ordered and the commitment placed in the hands of the sheriff. Ashmead, as a consequence, has been taken north to serve his sentence. Now comes the sister of Ashmead, who maintains that Attorney Blakeley's action in making application was with out warrant; that her brotherdld not de sire to go north before the supreme court had passed upon his case, and that the attorney acted as he did out of spite because he had not been paid the amount agreed upon. Such a charge of unprofessional con duct against an attorney ls the worst possible thing that cart happen to a young practitioner; and as it Includes also something very like a serious con tempt of court by false representations, It ls quite likely that the matter will be investigated^ A HARD CASE Goes to tho State's Prison to Be Cured of the Morphine Habit It is rather hard when a man realizes that his only hope is in being sent to the state's prison, and yet that is precisely the attitude that William Avery took yes terday. He was arraigned before Judge Smith on the charge of having stolen a bicycle, and, waiving time, stood ready to re ceive sentence. The court wanted to know something about the matter, and then Avery's story came out. About two years ago he was treated while lying sick with hypodermic injections of morphia to alleviate his pain, and when he recov ered he continued, to take a "shot" when ever he felt twinges of the old complaint. Soon he was a confirmed morphine fiend, and there seemed, to be no escape for him. His passion for the drug was such that, not having a hypodermic syringe in his possession, he stole one and was ar rested and served, a s"hort time In the city Jail for petit larceny. Lately, like the prodigal of old, he came to himself and' determined to break away from the mor phine habit. He knew that of his own volition he could not do so, and with the utmost deliberation he went andi stole a bicycle that was standing against the curlb of the street. He then made his way to Detective Hawley and informed nim of what he had. done, and was duly placed under arrest. Being the second charge of petit larceny against him, Avery's crime ranked as a felony, and that was how and why he appeared before Judge Smith yesterday. There was not much room for moraliz ing in a case of this kind when, the-de fendant had coolly elected to go to the penitentiary, and so Judge Smith sen tenced Avery to two years at San Quen tin. A PARTNER'S TRICK Clean Shaven Drivers as Drawing Cards for Butchers The case of F. Alexander against T. Bossier came up yesterday before Judge Allen on a motion by the defendant to dissolve fhe injunction that had been Is sued when the suit was begun. Both plaintiff and defendant were for a time partners in the "Bon Ton" butcher store at 2624 South Main street. The de fendant sold his. interest to hi 9 partner and clearer! out, but a short time after opened up another "Bon Ton" butcher store at 2647 South Main street. Alex ander contends that when he bought out Bossier he understood as part of the contract that the latter would not open up in his immediate vicinity as an active competitor In business, carrying on busi ness under the old name, etc. In his an swer Boes-ler denies all of this. He con tends that there is no possibility of the public being mistaken asito the two busi nesses, for the reason that he has a spick and span shop, newly painted wagons driven by young and smooth-shaven drivers, while his whilom partner has an InDerioeily appointed etore, old. and worn-out wagons, driven by old- and fceavily-moustached drivers. What figure these nice distinctions may have In moving the court remains to be seen. THE SEA MARRIAGE Judge Allen Again to Pass on the Nor man-Thompson Nuptials The case of Homer Norman against Jeannette Thompson Norman was yes terday transferred from Department three to Deportment six. It was agreed and stipulated that tbe case be decided on the pleadings, the defendant con ceding all the allegations of the plain tiff to be true. This ls the case of the runaway couple from Duarte, who claim they were legal ly married at sea. When the matter came up some time ago on habeas cor pus proceedings Instituted by the girl's father. Judge Allen held the marriage to be invalid and the girl was returned to the custody of her parents. Habeas corpus proceedings can not be appealed from, and this suit was begun to have the court pass upon the validity of the marriage. AN ODD CASE Illustrating How Justice Was Ad ministerd in the Early 'SO's In looking over the old records of the county at the court house a good opin ion may be formed of the remarkably free and easy methods, to use the mild est term, in vogue in the early 50's. The following record of a horse-steal ing case would be hard to beat, in so far as it shows what persistence was displayed in locating the thief and the amicable terms upon which that gentle man stood with an officer of the court: The People vp. Andreas Duarty—Grand larceny; October 14, 1851; W. B. Osborn sworn as interpreter. This day defendant appeared before me on a charge of having stolen a Horse from Mr. Stockton In this caus the de fendant was arrested on a Warran is sued by Justice Scott Ygnacio Palo meres sworn as Witness and it appear ing to the satis faction of the court from said evidence that the defendant is not guilty as regards Stockton's Horse but from said evidence it did appear that the defendant Duarty was guilty of stealing a horse from Ygnacio Palo mares worth two hundred dollars he is therefore held to answer at the court of Sessions now In Session and it let to bale in the sum of six hundred dollars. Ygnacio Falomares goes ball. Justices costs 3 paid by county. Sheriff costs 2.20 The idea of convicting one man of a crime by the evidence submitted in proof of the guiltiness of another is very rich; and the idea of the official inter preter and Injured party stepping for ward as his bondsmen Is infinitely re freshing. FATE OF THE NEBEID The Yawl Forfeited, to Be Sold at Six Todays' Notice The fate of the yawl Nereid has been decided. She has been forfeited by or der from the federal court and will be sold at six days' notice from the mar shal, the writ to be returnable any time during the term up to January, 1898. So much for having been used- In the un hallowed pastime of smuggling Chinese.

BROOKS Doubles His Last Year's Subscription for La Fiesta '98 The following letter which was re ceived yesterday at Fiesta headquarters is self-explanatory, and the secretary is piously hopeful that others will emulate the praiseworthy example of Mr. H. O Brooks, who is a prominent business mar. of this city, and who penned this letter: "Evidently, from what I see In the papers, it is uncertain for La Fiesta for the ensuing year. I sincerely hope that it will not be abandoned. I, for one, will double my subscription rather than see it fail. I do not regard it as a paying in vestment personally, but strangers are more impressed by La Fiesta, the flower display especially, than we who see it every year, and the thousands of flow ers constantly blooming In our yards. "There never has been, nor will be, any money better expended to advertise Los Angeles than by keeping up La Fiesta in whole or in part. "When I first came to California the floral parade Impressed me as the grand est and most impressive thing in parades that I had ever seen, and there are thou sands on thousands who carry to their Eastern homes the pleasantest memor- ies, and who write and talk of La Fiesta as one of the most delightful occasions of their stay here." Y. W. C. A. RALLY Opening of the Winter Season's Work and Classes The educational rally of the Young Women's Christian associatkm will be helci Thursday evening at eight oclock at the rooms of the association, 211^4 West Second street.

The new quarters, of which the asso ciation took possession a few months ago, afford opportunity for carrying or. a much larger work in physical training than in former years and apparatus work is to be introduce-d.

A. Fllcher, secretary of the state board'of trade, in a communication to the cham ber from Hamburg.Germany, a few days ago: LOS ANGELES, Cal., Sept. 27, 1897. I have read with much surprise the letter published recently ir the city press to your honorable chamber from Mr. J. A. Fllcher, secretary of the state board of trade, on the subject of canai gre, and feeling that Mr. Fllcher has been grossly misinformed by the report of "one of the largest importers of ca naigre in Hamburg" on some of the vital points, I would respectfully submit to the chamber 6ome remarks in connec tion therewith. As to the relative percentage of tan-' nic acid In canalgre as against other tan ning materials, I would call attention to the report of the Chicago world's fair commission on thlssubject. In book A, page 14, section A, division 2, class 552, you will find the report of F. It. rGammon, superintendent of depart ment H, which says: "I report that this exhibit (canalgre) af ter a careful and thorough Investigation of all standard commercial tanning material, md the compAfison of the manufactured product of jCejkyt'ioeff..herewith, j Bm C f the opinion W-m>wihiW»re contains a larger quantity of > *hnr> »nvl. with less injurious substance, that* emy other known tanning materl.il In use." Further: "About ISO tests of various leather tanned with canalgre by different manufacturers, discloses that leather tanned wltrl this material ls much stronger, more durable and flexible, and is affected less by heat and moisture than that tanned by any other material." The Hamburg report further states that "In England there may stjll be about 150 tons, for which £4 10s was bid. But £5 10s per tor was asked." Now, I say that during the past eighteen to twenty-four months there has been shipped to England from California, Arizona and one or two other places in this country, over 1500 tons of dried ohtpe, equal to 4500 tons of the green roots; and that within the past sixty or ninety days they received in Liverpool nbout 200 to 300 tons of dried chips. These were sold foi more than double the price quoted by the Hamburg agent. I have had quotations and offers from •England during the past six months for -my amount of canaisre chips at prices never less than double the amount of .he Hamburg importer's quotation, art: money lay In one of the banks of this city, and I think is there now, to ad vance to me 75 per cent of this price for chips against bills of lading. I have received from Liverpool a sam ple of dried canalgre chips which were part of a lot of 170 tons sent from this country and sold there for £10 per ton. This sample was sent to me for the pur pose of comparison with the California product. I mention these details sim ply to dispose of the question of market price. The Hamburg report further says: "Should It be possible to make an ex tract of the canalgre roots and to ship •.he tanning acid contained in the roots !n the form of extracts, it would be quite different." The Hamburg importer is evidently very ill-posted on the facts, for it is a fact that canalgre extract re ceived an award at the late Chicago world's fair for its superiority over all other tanr.lng materials. It is probably true that more canalgre Is being planted in Southern California than in any other part of the state (but this is being planted with eastern cap ital almost entirely). The Hamburg friend of the farmers of Southern Cali fornia while admitting that extract of canalgre would "be quite differert," seems to overlook the somewhat import ant fact that it is necessary to grow the roots before you can make extract, and from advices I have in my posses sion from most reliable firms In Eng land, it is a fact that the California grown canalgre commands the highest price In the English market, a price that the Hamburger's figures do not com mence to approach. The question of profit is ore that Is very largely controlled by "cost ofpro duction," and- that only experience can settle. All I wish to say is that the let ter of "one of the largest importers of canalgre in Hamburg" is not correct, and Mr. Fllcher has been misled, and I trouble you with this letter for the sake of fair play for an Industry that ls prob ably understood by very few people, but which, with its natural attendants, viz., glowing the roots and extracting the acid here, tanning the leather here, and, finally, manufacturing boots ar.d shoes here, all of which will come in time, will be a most Important com mercial business ar.d a great benefit to this much-favored country of Southern California. Since writing the above I have thought it might be well to quote from a letter dated July 21, 1897, from a Hamburg house to our company, asking us to "send a large, fresh sample of your ca nalgre and quote me your lowest deliv ered price In Hamburg." This does not indicate that there is, no demand for canalgre, ever, in Ham burg. Tours very truly. JOHN ALTON, Secretary California Canalgre and Ex tract Company.
