LUCKY STRIKE The Varied Fortunes It Brought the Creedes RATHER CHECKERED CAREER fIOW LOU PATTERSON OBTAINED HER COGNOMEN Can Eat Lots of Dope—Married and Divorced So Often Her Memory Is Hazy as to Details There Is a strong resemblance between the present status of tho Creede will contest and a kitten walking over hot bricks. There is a dainty handling of the testimony that seems to betoken some thing sensational later on. The facts developed yesterday could hardly be termed sensational, although they were somewhat spicy, and from the very fact that the present trouble has arisen, in part, at all events, from the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Creede were rough-spun characters, acknowledged to have been under the influence of the morphine hab it, an element of strange, uncanny In terest is given to the case. Wrst of all yesterday Mrs. Creede was called to the witness stand to prove that she was the same person from whom George Vandever, In 1866, had In en granted a decree of divorce. Tha con testant was garbed the same as on Tues day, in a lustrous black satin, gray cloak and a black velvet hat with ostrich plumes that appeared a trifle coquettish for the rather heavy spectacled face be neath. The witness stated that when she married Vandever in IS'.S her maiden name was Nancy Louise White, As she had previously stated that she was S3 years of age last July, she must have been only about 14 years old when she first assumed matrimonial obligations. Running through the list of her various marriages Mrs. Creed? testified to her name in each case and then was retired. Mr. Finlayson. upon offering in evi dence the certified record of the Vande ver divorce, was met With emphatic ob jection from the other side. Until n< arlj the time for adjournment arguments and counter-arguments were indulged ln on the relative merits of tweedledum and tweedle dee. Mr. Foley, on behalf of the proponents, argued that the Illi nois court had no Jurisdiction of the di vorce proceeding, and offered a long string of statutory objections which ne cessitated that Judg» Clark should re view the actions of the court of a sister state, after having first decided that the legal tribunal of this sister state actual ly had jurisdiction. The court refused to accept such an onerous undertaking, overruled the objection, and let the dis puted documents go ln. These various documents are of the "hot stuff" variety and are well spiced with racy detail. Vandever alleges that his wife had run off with a man and at later date had entered a house of prosti tution at Paducah, Ky. On the ground of adultery committed within the boun daries of the state of Illinois the court In Illinois granted the decree to Vande ver, and not for having in the first in stance deserted him. The court records ln the several di vorce proceedings to which Mrs. Creede had been a party were next put in evi dence over the renewed objections of the opposition, and the first witness was called to the witness stand. This was a young lady, quite prepossessing in ap pearance, who gave her name as Ida Bloom. From her pronounced accent it might be inferred that she was of Ger man origin, her testimony being given in a manner which didn't indicate the very highest order of intelligence. Briefly, her testimony was as follows: OUT IN CREEDE CAMP "I first met Mrs. Creede In the Creede camp in Colorado in February. 1892. Mr. Creede and his nephew, Sherman Phifer, were In tho camp also, and I worked there as cook for seven months, and then for one year at Pueblo. We all went to Pueblo together and remained there from September, 1592, to September, 1593. In September, 1893, we started for Los Angeles. I went with .Mr. and Mrs. Creede to Las Vegas hot springs, It be ing their wedding trip. Before the mar riage Mr. Creede spoke of his wife as Lou Patterson, but after as Mrs. Creede. When the marriage ceremony had been performed Mrs. Creede indicated her new condition by wearing a wedding ring. In Los Angeles I remained with the Creede's for ten months, and then was away for three months. On return ing I was with them for about five or six months. "During th? time I was with them I knew Mrs. Creede used morphine al! the time. I have seen her take it two and three times a day, and she carried it in littie bottles, ihe morphine being in powder form. The relations between Mr. nnd Mrs. Creede appeared to be happ>, and sho attended to him with assiduous attention. When Mis. Creede Wag under thi Infiuenci of morphine she appeared lively, g i tempered and went about her work more eh, erfully than at other times. Ait r an hour or more she would act in tut ordinary way, nut i don't think site ever wen; wlthoul mor phine. Ordinarily she was lively and talkativ.:-. ■■ i ■to .k int..si-, atm Awarded Highest Honors—World's Fair, Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair. 'DR; A Pure Orape Cream of Tartar Powder. ,40 YEARS THE STANDARD, liquors, but used to imagine things. Sometimes she would think men were looklns through tho windows and at times would get up at midnight and sweep around and sometimes go out and begin washing the porch balustrade. There were servants ln the house to do all such work. In addition to the mor phine she 'dipped snuff,' taking a small teaspoonful at a time. I first saw her taking snuff in Colorado and right along since then sho has taken it." Upon cross-examination the witness explained how Mrs. Creede used to take her doses of morphine. She would pour powder amounting to the size of a pea Into her hand and swallow it. In 1893 witness accompanied her mistress to Riverside, Ala., on a trip and they were absent from Pueblo for about six weeks. It was at the latter place that Mrs. Creede had the hallucinations regarding the men looking in at the windows. Wit - ness was not at the house in Los Angeles i when Mrs. Creede left It, being absent in Montana, but upon her return she remained with Mr. Creede as cook until his death and for several months after. I THE AMETHYST PARTNERSHIP Mrs. Creede. recalled, gave a lengthy statement of her life with her hus*band from the time of their meeting until the separation in January, 1887. She stated that she first met him at Del Norto, Col., in 1891. She then told him that she had found indications of gold in the Indian Territory, and thereupon both went out pwispecting, with Sherman Phifer mak ing the third member of the party. It was then agreed that each one should have one-third of whatever was found, but as it happened nothing was found. On the next trip Creede said that Lou Patterson ac she was then known— and he would share in any proceeds share and share alike, and upon this un derstanding they again started off, Sherman Phifer, the nephew. Joining them later. After prospecting around they struck the place since known as the Creede camp, and then, nfter working amund, Creede gave up in despair. He packed the burros and wanted to cleat out. But Lou Patterson was made of pluckier stuff and begged him to remain for awhile longer. After some demur she got him to consent to remain Just three days longer, and the woman with her own hands unpacked the burros. In those fateful three days the ledge was struck and the discovery of the Ame thyst mine became a matter of mining history. "He made $1100 a day out of the mine,' said Mrs. Creeds yesterday. "After wards, when we first spoke about divid ing up, he said he would give me $5000. and when we reached Pueblo he prem ised to give me a house. Some time after that I made the house over to Sherman Phifer at Mr. Creede's request. Creede appeared so hesitating that I asked him why we could not divide up and he could let me go. He replied that he would have halved up before but for fear that I would go away, and that If he did so then that I would leave. He said that I had promised to marry him, and if I wouldn't do so that I would have to go to law to get my share. That conversation was In April; we were married In May and we came to Los Angeles in September. At that time there was m property stand ins In my name, for he said if we were married no necessity would exist for putting it in separate names. POISONING THE "DOPE" "I first commenced using morphine," continued Mrs. Creede, in answer to the interrogatory of her counsel, "in the fall of 1376. I had got kicked by a cow and the doctor gave me morphine to ease the pain, and I kept on taking it. 1 took it dry by tho mouth and never hypoder mic-ally save when the doctor gave it to mo. I have used fifteen to eighteen grains a day. I used it Just when I need ed it. Never so seldom as four times a day, but I can't tell how many times. A bottle lasted me about two and a ha'.f days. I used snuff ever since I was 7 years old, hut never used liquors. In January of last year I took morphine in tablets and have some of them yet. Creede was using them, saying that he could quit it by taking them, and I told him that I didn't like them. He got vexed, and so I took them anyway. He gave me a bottle of them, but I didn't use them and got some of my own of the same kind." "Why didn't you use them?" inquired Mr. Finlayson, curiously. "Well. I thought that as he was in with that woman they might put something else ln. "I quit using tablets wh»n I left the house, for they made my brain feel as If It was in a compress. I left the house about January 4. lv.iT. I took from twelve to fourteen grains in the tablet form and sixteen grains sometimes each day while I was taking them, About September, 1894, I went to Rlsinore and then to Riverside to take the Keeley cure. Creede told me if I could get cured he would go. I paid my own way and stopped for about three weeks. The cure ruined my nerves and I think ev ery one else that takes it. Sometimes I feel all right nnd sometimes Btrength seems to go out of my hands. I loft be fore the cure was completed and thought I would go crazy. Since then I have seemed not to be able to use much mor phine and other times I can take all I want. I had to keep using it. Sine times I'm too warm; sometimes nervous and have the blues anil 1 couldn't tell all the different symptoms. The least exertion causes a perspiration, but i guess that's weakness. If Igo without morphine my voice gives out and has on occasions gone away altogether. THE WOMAN IN THE CASE "Do you know Maggie Kearny?" be gan counsel, opening up a new phase of the case. "Tee, sir: I tirst met her at the intel ligence office." "How long prior was it to the time when you left Mr. Creede?" "About six or seven months." "What did she come for?" "To nurse the baby." "For awhile I suw he was Infatuated with Maggie," continued Mrs. Creedi. in narrative form. "I hud seen him hug sing and kissing her, and I asked him if we couldn't get on better. When I'd come to the room Maggie would run out and if I'd shut the door he'd open it. 11, told me that the only way we could get on better would be if we'd quit, and he asked me what I'd take and quit. I said I didn t intend to quit any way and asked him who would take care of him if he got Bick, lb- asked me if I'd takes2o,oooand quit. I asked him if I wouldn't quit what then. !!,■ said there were lots of ways of getting rid of ~ person. Next day or the day after the agreement was produced. creede told me i could take the money unci he would give mo „„„... | ater j could go down to Texas or Mississippi. I ask-d Mr. Jones why I should leave my nome and he advised that I had better sign it for if I went to law I mightn't get anything. He was Mr. Cre, de' s law yer, but I had no lawyer for they told me I didti't need anyone. The day the LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY f 3,1898 agreement was signed Mr. Creede, Mr. Jonee and I had the conversation about it. I d»sn't read it and didn't ask about the wording for they said It was all right. It may seem strange that I didn't know what 'alimony' meant but I didn't. I might, however. If I handn't been hurt and worried by the whole affair. The agreement was signed In the First Na tional bank, where we went for the pur pose. 1 said 'I don't think I ought to sign this but I suppose I may as well." I then got Into a hack and went home and sat down and cried. I had received a check for $20,000 at the bank from Mr. Jones. I saw Creede on the Sunday at th? house where he told me that if I went to Texas or down south he probably would come to me by and by. When I left the house C. F. Hunter bought my ticket and I went cast. I had thought of staying In the city and making a fight for the money at that time but I Was discouraged and thought things would mmc around." (IX CROSS-EXAMINATION Sir. Cage began the cross-examination of Mrs. Creede by making her go over all of her matrimonial experiences. The dates, many of them, were so remote that she failed to rsmember the fsets ln connection with one marriage, saying that site couldn't remember. "A little matter like a matrimonial venture doesn't impress Itself upon your memory?" sarcastically queried counsel. "Well, when there are so many," was the reply, "you are liable to miss one." Heing asked how it came that she had for a long series of years been known by the name of Lou Patterson, witness replied that one night at Paducah, Ky.. a girl named Lou Patterson was going to a masked ball with an escort. At the last minute almost she asked witness to take her place and gave her her mask. She did so but at the ball her escort got involved in a light, and it was reported around that Lou Patterson and her fel low had been in trouble. By way of nickname the cognomen had clung to her more or less ever since. Being questioned regarding the $20, --000 received by her from Creede and asked if she had ever offered to return the money, she replied thnt she had not. She had no reason to. She had a right to it and was not in the habit of return ing money given to her by her husband. ' And you had $30,000 or $10,000 during the two years previous to the time of the separation, hadn't you?" inquired Mr. Gage. "No, sir, I had not: I never had any money save in the way of some presents, and money for us to live on." Counsel submitted for witness' Inspec tion checks drawn during 1894-96 by the late N. C. Creede. checks aggregating In value $17,500, all in favor of witness. Si mie of these Mrs. Creede acknowledged receiving, while others she denied hav ing ever received in Los Angeles, al though she conceded she might have re ceived them at Pueblo, Col. The case will be resumed this morning. A STRANGE COMPLICATION John Woodruff Convicted of Embez zlement While Innocent A most extraordinary complication has arisen in the case Of John Woodruff, whose trial in Department one' was brought to a conclusion yesterday morn ing by the Jury returning a verdict of guilty. Woodruff was tried on the charge of having embezzled a team belonging to G. Fetterman, a Long Beach livery man, in July last. The Jury adjudged him guilty and placed the value of the team nnd rig at $250. and within a couple of; hours afterwards evidence was forth coming that strongly indicated that Woodruff had been wrongfully convict ed; that most if not all the witnesses for the defense knew positively that he was innocent and for the best reason in the world—they knew positively that his brother Sam Woodruff was the guilty party. All of the defending witnesses testified to a man named Sam Williams answered the description given by the witnesses for the prosecution in eveiry particular. The defense showed that the defendant, John Woodruff, had shaved on the 4th of the month, while the prosecution con tended that when the team was taken on the sth of the month he had a pretty full b-ard. A very fair appearing alibi was proved by the defense, but Assistant District Attorney Williams argued to the jury that the defense was a matter of relationship, and the Jury let the district attorney do their thinking for them and returned a verdict of guilty. The defending witnesses hoped to clear John Woodruff by telling half of the truth, and without implicating th' brother. What they swore about Sam Williams on the stand was true, but they failed to state that Sam Williams is the ordinary name by which Sam Woodruff is known. Even Judge Phillips, who de fended the case, didn't know that. If John had been acquitted nothing mop would have been heard of the matter, but having been convicted, his relatives insist that the Simon-pure offender stand up and face the music. Last night the constable's deputy, in company with Woodruff's brother-in-law, went out to hunt up the offender. Meantime, however, John AVoodruff ■stands in a curious position. He is not guilty of wrong, and yet he is a convicted prisoner. There is no basis upon which may rest an application for a new trial, the court cannot set the jury's verdict aside, and it seems as if it remains only with the governor, upon proper recom mendation of the facts being made, to pardon him for having been while inno- C( tit adjudged by a jury guilty of crime. INJURED INNOCENCE Lena Perret Has Her Whilom Lover Arrested H. Harris Argalvite, a young fellow of about 20 years, was arraigned before Justice Young yesterday on the charge of seduction. The complaint was made by Lena Perret, a young girl, who • barges the dobonnair Argalvite with having accomplished her ruin on or about June 1, 1 SOT. Miss Perret was a Solvation Army lassie, but since her fall from grace has severed her connection with the organization. She has followed the occupation of table waitress at the Ellis house on Broadway and has roomed at the Temperance tabernacle on Temple street. Argalvite is a well appearing young fellow who has been employed at a wooilen supply house on Broadway. Dis examination was set for Friday. Point in Federal Law Noah Lee, the yowth indicted a short time ago for train robbery in Indian territory, has been in the county jail here awaiting the warrant for his re moval to the eastern district of Texas. Yesterday morning Lee's attorney ap peared at the district court and restated the application for a warrant of re moval under section 1014 of the revised statutes. As the question involves a very Important point ln federal law—tho rlgnt of jurisdiction of one district court In the district of another —the matter was taken under consideration and Judge Wellborn will render his opinion Friday. Peck Wants to Be Free Petition for a writ of habeas corpus was filed in the district court yesterday by W. P. James, attorney for Augustus E. Peck, the postofflce clerk who was arrested on the charge of stealing letters from the office. The federal grand Jury Indicted him and he waa sentenced under accumulative counts to eighteen months' imprisonment. The petition claims that Peck has served his time on one of the counts, and ns each of the seven charge him with the same offense his discharge from custody is asked. The matter Is taken under considera tion and will come up Friday. New Suits Filed The Midland Brick and Tile company •vs. Charles L.
