The Varied Fortunes It
Brought the Creedes
RATHER CHECKERED CAREER
fIOW LOU PATTERSON OBTAINED
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
"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

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
"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
"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

"Tee, sir: I tirst met her at the intel

when you left Mr. Creede?"
"About six or seven months."

in narrative form. "I hud seen him hug

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,

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
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.
"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
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
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.
Lena Perret Has Her Whilom Lover
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.
