The Santa Monica Case
Threshed Over
, j !*•
Another Peculiar Transaction In
Which Webb Is Implicated.
Another Arrest May Result
1 The preliminary examination of As
i bury Feesell on a charge of grand lar
ceny was held yesterday before Justice
Guldlnger at Santa Monica and resulted
in the defendant being held over to the
superior court for trial. ..During, the
course of the hearing some very damag
■ ins evidence was brought out against
Deputy City Marshal Willard Webb,
I who is charged with having received a
bribe from Feezell.
The examination was set for 10 oclock,
1 but owing to the failure of the district
attorney to have a representative on
■ hand before 11:30 oclock the proceedings
were delayed an hour and a half. As
soon as the defendant was brought Into
court he was Joined by Attorney Morgan
and Policeman Webb and the three held
a private conversation In one corner of
i the room for some minutes.
! Deputy District Attorney Williams
j conducted the prosecution and Attorney
Morgan has been employed by Feezell
o look after the defense.
Louie Turner, a trusty at the county
i Jail, was the first witness called. He
'■■ stifled to having seen the note written
by Feesell to Emmett In which it.was
t'ti ted that Webb had received $100 and
hn i promised to get the complaints
aga Inst the two dismissed. The witness
that while In the same cell with
' -ell, after the tatter's arrest on the
new complaint filed by Emmett, Feezell
had ■said to him that he didn't see why
Enimett had done as he had after every
thii had been fixed up with Webb so
thui. l oth would get out of the scrape.
Att rney Morgan objected to the tes
tlmony on the ground that the evidence
j while olng to place Webb In a bad light
: did not show Feezell's guilt. The court
ruled mat the evidence was admissible,
ras the drcumstances under which the
\ statements were made indicated guilt on
V h par: of Feezell.
-I Will "'.fcFadden, also a trusty at the
.1 uunty jail, testified that Feezell had
it ild him that he had given Webb $100 to
-\>h i n. it of the scrape and that every
\ ~ i ' been all fixed when Emmett
I'd gone back on him. A letter written
, I the < nty Jail by Will Emmett to
\i Retell and which was found on Fee
persoa after his second arrest was
il ns an exhibit. It was Jhe answer
i'lttei L this letter which Webb is
.' Ofiirged wuh having Induced Emmett to

of the affair as W has all along, but was
much hampered in siviftf his testimony
by a - severe hon-tencss.
Ex-Police man We i ■■ testimony, re

but nothing of importance was brought
Emmett's father testified that Feezell
had acknowledge' to him that he took
the money, and that FeeatH said that if
he would)send Spark* to l.im, he (Feezell)
would gtVc thr- money ba k.
Judge Morgan then moved for a dis
missal of the caw , on the grounds that
the evidence was not sufficient to show
that any robbery hud be. it committed.
Judge Guidlngi r, hovever held Feezell
to appear bi fo • tne 9UPi ., or court.

made against Webb, infurmatloh of

The Telephone Company Commencing
to Lay Its Cable
Small mobs of people gathered on the
corners and in the street yesterday af
ternoon while some men were busily en
gaged In lowering a long section of lead
pipe from a large reel into various holes
on Broadway and Spring street. Every
body wondered what it was, and they
"guessed" and they "reckoned" and they
bluffed and a few knew.
One of the latter turned with a large
scorn to two men—who were contem
plating the pipe disappearing into the
aperture, and incidentally discussing
whether or not It might be gas-pipe—and
said: "That is the new telephone cable;
It is to go underground after this and
the poles are to come down."
The men nodded their heads slowly
and tried to appear as if they understood
all about It, and one, who looked as if he
seldom enjoyed a lucid interval, re
marked: "Oh, yes, I see! They run it
down that hole and then round the city
through the sewers." Several bystand
ers fainted on the spot.
While the underground cable is not
gflng to "run through the sewers," it
will be placed in the conduit as faaTas
It reaches here from the east, and as
soon as is practicable the poles will be
removed and everything will be under
ground. This lead tubing holds 204 wires,
each wholly protected with paper insu
lation; and being Insulated and twissvd
there will be none of the difficulty that
is so frequently experienced when the
wires run parallel from the poles as they
do now—that of being obliged to hear
what other people are saying who ore
talking over separate wires but are nev
ertheless audible.
Will Take the Chamber of Commerce
Directors to Pasadena
Sixteen of the directors of the chamber
of commerce are to attend the tourna
ment of roses at Pasadena today in fine
style. A big English tallyho with heavy
red wheels, belonging to the Tallyho
stables, has been completely covered
with red holly, trimmed with smllax.
On each side of the coach are the letters
C. of C. in smllax on a ground of holly.
The coach will be drawn by six white
horses, whose harness will be wrapped
in red. Four men worked all day yester
day on the decorations, and the directors
will come back this afternoon with a
banner, without doubt.
Exhibits for the farmers institute are
fast arriving. Firu ranch, Plru City,
sends a display of Washington Navel
oranges, grape fruit, pomquots and
olives on the branch. A. O. Holmes sends
in Bellflower, Winesap, Winter Pear

Ball Last Night
Masonic hall was well filled last even

a musical and literary entertainment

short address, in which he explained why
the last day of the year belongs especial

graceful host and introduced the other
contributors to too evening's entertain

Won't Prevent Work at the Govern-
ment Plant
WASHINGTON, Dec. 81.—It Is as
certained at the Navy Department that
a of the Patent Office experts
recently submitted in the matter of the
patents for Harveylzed armor plate may
result in the withholding of payment of
further royalties on plate furnished by
large steel companies. The question sub
mitted by Secretary Long to the Patent
Office was whether the employment of
a temperature above' that of cast iron
is an essential feature of the Harvey
patents, and the experts reached the
conclusion that such heat was an essen
tial feature of the device. The Navy
Department armor plate experts are of
the opinion that the highest temperature
is not essential to the obtaining of the
most hardened plates. The use of tem
peratures not quite so h(gh as that cov
ered by the Harvey process is not re
garded as an Infringement of the Har
vey patents.
Realized on the Old First Presbyterian
Church in the New
The Rev. Burt Estes Howard, when
asked last evening what probable effect
the supreme court's decision would have
on the First Presbyterian church, stated
that he was not prepared to say; that
he had heard nothing of it Until Judge
McKinley telephone! him of the decision
and that he had seen none of the trustees
of the church since.
When asked what use had been mado
of the money that had been paid for the
old church property, Mr. Howard stated
that all of it, and more, had gone fhto
the church property on Flgu roa street,
except a small amount which had been
used to settle an old indebtedness out
standing against the old church.

presentation of the white flag to the
regiment, Is tolerated good-naturedly by
the audience, and always has been

The element of Incongruity is recog
nized as the chief moving cause of
laughter; therefore, In treating of death,
corpses, coffins, undertakers and burials,
all.in a comic way, the Hoyt play is a
huge success. The audience laughed to
its heart's content last night, and, really,
when once reconciled to the peculiarly
ghastly nature of the topic chosen, it
was easy to laugh at jokes upon "stiffs"
on Ice, and even to cackle at the con
cluding joke on the militia, that, as their
supposed corpse had turned out to be
alive, they should celebrate the discov
ery by a "grand resurrection ball."
Lansing Rowan, as the widow, looked
charmingly and gave all the importance

the Sam T. Shaw company changed Its
bill to "Shadows of a Great City." The
change' was not all that could be de
sired. The action of the melodrama was
slow, and the players failed to arouse
the sympathies of their audience to any
great extent through five long acts. The
scenes in the piece are laid tn and about
New York, and include, among others,
a pawnbroker's shop and the prison on
Blackwell's island.
Sam T. Shaw made a manly sailor, but
did not make the decided hit In this part
that he did earlier in the week. Al. H.
Hallett made a good Jew, and W. H. de
Vaul made a sufficiently "tough" part
out of the sneak thief. If H. W. Gilbert
would strive for clearer articulation, a
better idea of his conception of his part
might be gained. Birdie de Vaul made a
pretty and effective Helen Standi** and
won the sympathy of her auditors In her
defense of her lover. As Biddy Roman,
Nellie Maine Shaw made the hit of the
evening. She is the spark that keeps alive
the fire of the piece. The balance of the
cast was conscientiously filled. "Shad

WASHINGTON, Dec. 31.—The Direc
tor of the Mint, from information now
at hand, says that there is substantial
evidence that the world's product for the
calendar year of 1897 will approximate,
if not exceed, $240,000,000, an increase of
nearly 20 per cent over 1896.
The gold product of the United States
for 1896 was $53,100,000; for 1897 it will ap
promimate $61,500,000, an increase of
The production of Africa for 1896 was
$44,400,000, returns received up to Dec.
Ist, 1897, indicate that the gold product
of that country for the year 1897 will be
$58,000,000, an increase of $13,600,000.
Australasia, for 1896, $45,200,000; for
1897, the indications are that it will not
be less than $51,000,000, ah increase of
Mexico, for 1896, $8,330,000; for 1897
estimated at $10,000,000, an Increase of
The Dominion of Canada, for 1896, $2,

Increase of $4,700,000.
India's product for 1897 is esimated at
$7,500,000, an increase of $1,400,000 over
Russia's gold product for 1896 was $21,
--550,000; for 1897, estimates to approxi
mate $25,000,000, an Increase of $3,600,
The Indications for the United States ,
are that Colorado will lead in the pro
duction of gold for 1897, as it is estimated
that the product will be not less than
$20,000,000. California will follow with a
product of probably $19,000,000. With
the exception of the South Appalachian
range, It is" bellevecTthat there will be an
increase in every producing State and
Territory of the gold product over that
of 1896.
