AN OILY DEAL
Into Which the Southern

A REPENTANT YOUNGSTER
EX-POLICE OFFICER BATES IS
AGAIN ON THE BACK
i' ' ■
A Damage Suit Filed Against The
Herald—Divorces Below the
There are "wheels within wheels" In
the carrying out of most contracts, but
in the suit of H. 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
, 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
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
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
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
"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
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
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
Emilia Taylor against Walter Taylor.
THE HERALD SHED
H. W. Patton Desires to Annex Some
Yesterday afternoon a suit was filed
against The Herald Publishing company
by H. W. Patton to recover the sum of
$50,000 as damages suffered by reason of
a certain article published in The Her
ald's issue of the 21st inst.
Apart from the article claimed to be
defamatory the complaint merely sets
out the statutory farts, and that the ar
ticle in question was false. The law
linns of Works & Lee and Winder &
Davis, with M. W. Conkling, represent
the plaintiff in the case.

SAN BERNARDINO, Cal.. Jan. 22,1898.
MR. W. F. MoBCRNEY—Dear Sir: It
affords me much pleasure to testify to the
efflearv of your Kidney and Bladder Cure.
I have been troubled with my kidneys for
the past three years. nnd have doctored
with the best physicians, lull regret to say
they done mo no good. Doctors say it was
from change of life. The pain was so In
tense it was almost unbearable.
I was advised to try your medicine, and
the lirst dose gave me great relief, and
the second dose relieved me entirely. I
have not taken half the bottle, and I feel
like a new woman. I have recommended
your medicine to a number of my friends,
and they all speak in its praise. If this let
ter is of any us" to you. use It. Yours
truly, MRS. LOUISE MARTIN.
