A DIFFERENCE Between the Petition and the Facts THE ENGLISH OF ABILDGAARD !ONCLE COLLIS SUED BY MRS. MARY HANNON Mark Lewis and Bob Wankowski Are Purged of Contempt—Trainer Maben Sued Tho hearing of the petition for a writ Of habeas corpus applied for by Mrs. Fannie Hlckson was continued yester day afternoon by Judge Allen until next Monday. Airs. Hlckson all. Red that her daughter, May Ethel, a little, Innocent looking country girl, not less than 11 years of age, was restrained of her lib erty by John McGarvin at his Ashing camp at Alamltoa bay, Long Beach. She also claimed that the girl received im proper clothing, was neglected and greatly exposed to evil and t< mptatlon, ■which threaten her downfall and mi:;. From the reading Of this petition a person might, be Inclined to think that Alamitos bay is the most corrupt place ln the world, and poor, old John Mc- Garvin as desperate a pirate as c' er cut a throat or Scuttled a Ship; but. as a mat ter of fact. John is * good, peaceable and undent fisherman, who is the grand father of Ethel May Hlckson. His granddaughter is nun I; attached to him and will not leave him and her aunt, a chunky little girl of her own age. This is the reason that Ethel's parents have made use of the writ of habeas corpus, and also because Grandpa Meliarvin has made up his mind that so long as the lit tle girl wanteil to stay with him she might do so, and her "paw and maw warn't a-goin' to git her onless the Jedge sed so." When the court inquired with whom the little girl would like to remain until the time of the hearing, she unhesitat ingly said she woidd go hack to her grandfather, and she never cast a look in the direction of her parents. As it was out of the question to remand her to the custody of the sin-riff. Judge Allen placed her in charge of the old fisherman, who promised to produce her at the hear ing, there being no objection interposed by Mrs. Hickson's attorney. The only reason why the blood-curd ling allegations in the complaint were made seems to be that John McGarvin is a widower, and thnt the daughter is sued from his second marriage is net old enough to exert much maternal care over Ethel while the old man Is away fishing for a living. Lastly, there is oc casionally a dance at Alamitos bay in the evening to drive dull care away, and Mrs. Hickson's attorneys urge thai the Bound of music might expose the little girl in short dresses "to evil and tempta tion, and eventually to her downfall and death."

Hannon, a widow, and the guardian of her six minor children, is the plaintiff, and she demands that Uncle Collis shell out of his strong box $15,000 for damages and ■ an additional $2000 for rents and rrofits I and costs. Mrs. Hannon explains that in Feb ruary, 1894, the corporation entered her and her children's land, containing about 23 acres and situated on the Compton road oust south of the south charter boundary of Los Angeles city. J where its employes cut down 61 decidu ous fruit trees and 161 orange trees in bearing, dug up the soil, built embank ments and fences, and Just ran their old railroad through it as if they ow ned the • earth. It is still there and the Hannon's line is carved into two portions which can only be reached by climbing oyer fences or rolling down excavations. The plaintiffs say that at no time did they give the Southern Pacific the right 8 to trespass upon their premises or to build a track upon it. hut that when they demanded hack the slice thus taken from their orange grove they were ejected from it by the great monopolists. t They pray that the court will make Uncle Collls' people return them the In ' vaded strip and that he be made to "cough up" $17,000.

Mr. Lewis proved that he had been sick in hi d for more than a week, unable to attend to hi? duties al the bank and Mr. Wan kowskl explained that the attorneys for the defense had promised to telephone him when hie testimony was needed, but that they had failed to do so. The rep resentations satisfied the court and th two gentlemen were purged of the alle gation of contempt. They then testified as to the genuine ness of the signature of «'■. J. Griffith t i a number of checks, yet Mr. Lewis ex pressed some doubt as to the signature on exhibit A. which is the document up on which the trial bears. This conclud ed the case for the defense and rebuttal evidence was then Introduced by the prosecution. It led to ceaseless wran gles between the two side.*, hut at 11:30 there being no further testimony either way, the arguments commenced.

Barnett of Ven tura County Sends a Brief Budget of Frozen Facts John Z. Barnett of Ventura county has found that it is not all gold that glitters, particularly when the glittering quali ties are supplied by wild-haired stories concerning the Klondike, such as have been freely disseminated by many who "have returned for supplies" within the past few months. Mr. Barnett was for several years n supervisor in Ventura county and was one of the best known citizens of that section. Early last summer he left for the Klondike and Is now sorry that he did so. if a. letter written to a Los An geles friend is any indication of his present true state of mind. The letter Is dated at Bonanza Oul< h. Northwest territory, October 31, IS'»7. and runs as follows: "I will give you the promised letter — If it ever reaches you. I arrived at Daw son City on the last day of September, after having been out fifty-eight days from San Francisco. , "This is a very hard country. White | they have some gold here, Ihere is a 'great deal said on the outside that Is exaggerated and a great many claims made for this country that I have die- I covered to be unfounded In fact. I would . not advise any man to quit a good job and come to the Klondike. 1 will give I you a partial list of the prices prevall j ing here for necessary articles of food. Flour sells for $1.25 per pound, coffee 92, candles $50 per twenty-pound box, sin gle candles frequently selling for $1: beef brings $1.25 per pound. Everything else runs in proportion. There is a great shortage of food of all kinds and many people will have to go out on the ice as soon as the river freezes over or starve. The hotel gives meals for $11.50 or three meals for $10. So you can readily see how the newspapers get their stories about men getting $1 an hour or from $10 to $15 a clay for working on tlie claims. "Now. about the gold fields. I have investigated only in the immediate neighborhood of this camp, in which there are probably about 800 claims. Probably only five or ten per cent of the whole number are paying. I know v number of men who have been here for five years and today they have not grub enough to carry them through the win ter, and they are md whisky heads,' either. A man has to work every day in the year. You will hear a different story told by these people when you get In this country from what you hear in the states, and see in many of the newspa pers. As a matter of fact, the Alaska Commercial Trading company and the .Northwest Territory Trading company have nearly all the best mines in th* n< irthwest. "I have a steady Job and expect to work all winter for $1 an hour. If i have money enough in the spring to buy as much grub as I have on hand now. I will try my luck in the gold tlel<|s. Hut it will be on Uncle Sam's territory. No Canadian government for me. It cost us $fa duty on our little outfit. When you make a kick the Canadians will ask: 'Well, why did you pass the Dinghy bill?' "Everything is staked out here, so th'-re is no chance to do any prospect ing until spring. When I have spent a year or so in this country I will have a better knowledge of the place, but I am satisfied that this is a poor place for a laboring man. If you alt down and think of all the hardships you can imagine, you will have but half an idea of what must be endured to get to and live in this country." SERIOUSLY CUT Three Men Hurt by a Sheet of Plate Glass George Street was seriously Injured and Fat Culligan and C. W. Snodgrass were painfully cut yesterday afternoon on First street, near Broadway, by the breaking of a large sheet of plate glass which they were moving from the show window of F. U. Jones' book store. Sev eral days ago a bullet was fired through the window by some unknown person and the glass was badly broken. Street, i Culllgan and Snodgrass were sent to put In a new glass. As they were lift ing the broken pane out one of the men slipped and lost his hold. This caused I the glass to break, and before the men could get out of the way they were i aught by the falling fragments. A large piece struck Street on the leg above the knee and tore the flesh off to the bene for quite a distance. He was also severely cut about the head and should ers. Culllgan nnd Snodgrass were cut about the wrists, but their injuries were not so severe as those sustained by Street. The injured men were taken to the ret elvlng hospital, where Dr. Hagan I dressed their wounds. [• • ♦ Policelets Fred West, arrested by Patrolmen Hla< kburn and Johnson for disturbing the peace of Chinatown by loud yelling and cursing, was fined $10 yesterday, or given the alternative of ten days in Jail. Harry Ellis, who was arrested with a Mrs. Way on a charge of disturbing the peace, was found guilty in the polios ourt yesterday and will be sentenced today.

LOCAL TRAFFIC NEWS SANTA FE OFFICIALS AT WORK ON THE TUNNEL A Clash of Opinion as to the Cause of the Fire—Local News Notes and Personal Mention Thnt troublesome tunnel of the Santa Fe company near Williams, Ariz., is still causing more agitation than Debs ami his A. K. I. ever dreamed of. The officials are divided as to the cause of this second tire and the means to be employed to extinguish it. General Manager Nevln is quoted as seedling at tlie Spontaneous combustion theory, while those in the operating department, or at least some of them, cling to that idea. It has been decided to use water in trying to extinguish the present (lames, which ought to settle the theory one way or the other. If it is spontane ous the water will simply add to tlie deadly work of the lime: if the tire was caused by ordinary accident the result of a good soaking will end the trouble at once. The regular passenger trains of the Santa Fe are operated on both sides of the tunnel, and there passengers and baggage are transferred, a board walk has been laid about the obstruction, and as the distance is only 300 feet it is md much of an obstacle. The limited trains and all the freight trains are operated on the Southern Pacific tracks. NOTES Ex-Mayor Hilly Carlson once had a railway, mostly on paper, in San Diego, which ho called the San Diego and East ern Terminal Railway company, and he did succeed in laying a little track in some instances driving the spikes him self. When the Consolidated hank of that city failed Mr. Carlson brought suit against it for a claim, hut did not get w hat he wanted and is now trying to have the case reopened. Assistant Superintendent Prior of the Southern Pacific company is busy now all the time trying to get men enough to operate the road with its increased de mands caused by the blockade of the Santa Fe. It is due to Mr. Prior's In defatigable effort that the line is kept clear in spite of all the traffic that is accumulating. Oranges are going out to the east at the rate of about 126 cars dally. H. It. Ritchie, at present Pacific coast agent for the Chicago and Northwestern i ailway, with headquarters at San Fran cisco, Is slated to be the generul freight agent of the Union Pacific under the re organization of that company's operat ing department. Dave Goldberg, the king ticket broke-- Of the northwest, with headquarters at Butte, Mont., is in the city for climate. H. Fisher, formerly of the Burlington road in this city, has been made as sistant passenger agent for the Chicago and Northwestern. Tom McCaffery, the train dispatcher of the Arcade depot.

Three Saloon Men in Court for Ordi nance Violations At last the police seem to be In ear nest in their efforts to enforce the Sun day and midnight saloon doling ordi nance. There were three cases of alleged violation of this ordinance before Judge Owens yesterday and, while none of the caaea was tried, the complaints ware in regular form and the policemen who had made the arrests were present and ready to prosecute the cases. When the case against S. Scelver, who was arrested Sunday afternoon, was called, the defendant failed to respond. The case was passed until tomorrow at 1:80 p. m., when he will be given an op portunity to plead. F. M. Hubbard and A. Guiol, Who were arrested at 1 oclock Sunday morning at First and Wilmington streets by Sergt. Jeffries and Patrolmen Hubbard and Dyke, answered when their names were called. They were not ready for trial, however, and at their request the cases were continued until February 17 at 11:30 a. m. A Cough Should Not be Neglected.
