L. Williams et al. vs. Producers' Oil company et al. it is inter esting to note how the Couthern Cali fornia railroad was made party to a con tract to purchase oil as fuel on Its road. The testimony in the case showed that In January. IMS, Williams, desiring to embark in business and being acqualnt !ed with A. P. Maglnnis, who was then an officer of the Southern California Railway company, entered into a con tract with him, by the terms of which he agreed that If. Maglnnis would use his Influence with the railroad company m securing to Williams a contract to fur nish all the oil consumed for fuel by the company for the period of two years, he would pay Maglnnis a commission of 10 cents per barrel for all oil sold to the company during the continuance of the contract. Maginnis, sure enough, rustled around and did induce the com pany with which lie was connected to c.mtrai t with Williams to buy all fuel oil from him for a period of two years, ending July, 1897, at the rate of $1 per barrel of 42 gallons each, and by which contract Williams bound himself to fur nish certain tanks for storage, give a bond for faithful performance of con tract, and on this basis the contract went into effect. But Williams had no oil himself, and 'so he hied him to the Producers' Oil company, of which Maginnis was a di rector and officer, and contracted with that organization for oil enough to till the contract with the railroad company, at "o cents per barrel of 42 gallons each, for oil over 10 degrees' gravity and 66 cents per barrel of 42 gallons for oil under that degree of gravity. In order to till this contract, the Producers' com pany had to raise some money, and $10, --000 was obtained from the Farmers and Merchants' bank upon a note indorsed by Williams, Parker and Maginnis and secured by a mortgage. The Producers' company sold to Wil liams 70M barrels of oil above 16 degrees' gravity and a large amount of oil below such gravity, including 357 barrels of "Bellroek" oil, all of which Williams had mixed and delivered to the railroad com pany and pulled down the contract price of $1 per barrel. The note was paid, with the exception of $6000, and the Producers' company de faulted in this amount, and the Indors ees stipulated with the hank that they would pay. Parker, ot his own means, paid $2000, and Williams paid, for him self, $2000, and for Maglnnis $2000, which last amount was due Maglnnis for his royalty on the oil sold to the railroad company. When the full amount of the note was paid Williams caused the hank to execute a transfer to himself and Parker of the note and of the mortgage security, and they jointly brought ac tion to foreclose tho mortgage. Magln nis intervened, alleging that he had paid his third on the note, and that Williams and Parker held assignment of one third of the note and mortgage in trust for him. Hut Williams denied Magln nis' claim, on the ground that the con tract by which he was to receive com mission for the oil sold to the railroad company was against public policy and void, and that, growing out of this and other collateral contracts, all of which are shown to be as irregular as the rail road contract, an indebtedness exists from Maginnis to Williams in excess of the $2000 paid on the note in behalf of Maginnis. , Judge Allen, In his opinion, pronounces the contracts us fraudulent in their in ception, but that the profits of the ille gal transaction were divided between the guilty parties, and that Williams paid to the hank for Maginnis $2000 as and for his share of the profits. To this extent the contract, although illegal, was executed, and this position will not be disturbed. Williams having voluntarily paid Maginnis, or the bunk for him, $2000, the court finds that Maginnis sub rogated to a one-third interest in the note and mortgage; and, while it would not grant relief to Maginnis under the original contract, it refuses also to grttnt relief to Williams, which tends to re fund to him any portion of the profits of the transaction paid out by him. The judgment, therefore, is, so far, for Ma ginnis. A REPENTANT LAD Who Gave Promise of Developing Into a Clever Criminal Quite a handsome 17-year-old lad named Louis Baker pleaded guilty to burglary in Department one yesterday. An information was filed by Deputy District Attorney Willis, and time being waived the boy stood up to face the music. Well dressed and gentlemanly in deportment, with a wealth of fair, golden hair surmounting clean cut feat ures, Baker did not look as if he could be guilty of the list of crimes charged against him. It was shown, however, that on Sept. 10 he broke into Arlington & Heed's store on Broadway and stole some cam eras and other articles. More re cently it was discovered that this guileless looking youth was responsible for the burglarizing of the Southern California Arms company's store on First street, j when a Winchester rllle, a lot of cart ; ridges and other articles were stolen. A : Silt ing street storekeeper had the win j (low of his place of business broken by Baker, who stole on that occasion a dynamo. The father of the defendant was in j court and stated that he is a railroad | man in the employ of the Southern Pa i cifie. He stated that his boy had a good i home and ls a clever mechanic and has I made good wages working for a firm on First street. Mr. Willis intimated to the court that he was satisfied In his mind that the boy was under 18 years of age, and under such circumstances he asked that he be sent to the school at lone. "Well, young man, you are in a bad fix," remarked the court to young Bak er, "and if you are sent to lone—and 1 would hate to send you-to state's prison —I hope you will reform." "I'll do that all right," responded the youth in a remorseful tone of voice. "Do you think you really will re form?" queries the court again. "Yes, sir; all my ideas are to re form." "Is that because you have been caught In your depreciations?" "No, sir, it's the shame and the dis grace," and the blonde head was low ered as the boy realised his position. "Well. I'm inclined to give you a chance," said Judge Smith, and so it ls the judgment of the court that you 'ba confined at the Preston School of In dustry at lone for the term of three years." AN OFFICER'S EXPENSES What It Costs to Maintain a Kan "as An Officer and a Gentleman Ex-Police eOfflcer A. B. A. Bates was again on the rack in Department one yesterday. At the time his wife ob tained a divorce she was granted $20 per month as alimony, which has not been paid, and yesterday the delinquent hus band appeared in answer to a citation for contempt ln disobeying the order of the court. Attorney Ling, representing Bates, of fered affidavits of Drs. Rogers und Mc- Coy, eye specialists, and also a certifi cate given by ex-Police Surgeon Dr. E. A. Bryant all of which tended to show that if Bates paid the amount ordered by the court to his wife he would be then In a position practically of destitution, and seriously detrimental to his health. Bates, while on the police force, suffered an accident, which almost deprived him of his eyesight, and he has been in the doctor's hands ever since. He re ceives from the police officers' pension fund $41.06 per month, and that is all he has to support himself nnd pay for med icines—his medical advisers he does not appear to have been able to pay anything at all to date. His counsel tiled an itemized statement yesterday in which Bates' necessary expenses were set forth, and Mr. Hinckley, on behalf of the wife, examined the husband as to his shaving and laundry outlay. After Bates had been put through a lengthy examination the matter was taken under consideration by the court. THE DIVORCE MILL The Week's Filing of Suite Rather Be low the Average Judge Shaw yesterday granted a de cree divorcing Annette Waring from S. \V. Waring on the ground of failure to provide. The couple were married in 1889, but the husband became dissipated and profligate. In the same department a divorce was granted to Mary M. Sulli van against John E. Sullivan, on the ground of desertion. The following suits for divorce were flled during the past week: Sophie Karle against George Earle. C. C. Harraty against John Harraty. L. B. Sloan against B. F. Sloan. N. F. Oglesby against W. J. Ogelsby. Lavina Bardone against Humbert Bardone. Emilia Taylor against Walter Taylor. THE HERALD SHED H. W.

The question of debate was: "Resolved, That the United States should at once recognize the independence of Cuba." The affirmative was argued by F. W. Allender and Frazier M. Salee of the Progressive lyceum, and F. J. Syvert son and Theodore L. Syvertson of the Y. M. C. A. Debating lyceum contended in the negative. In addition to the de bate there was a musical and literary program. Judge B. N. Smith acted as president of the evening. The judges decided the debate in favor of the affirmative.
