HE MUST HANG
Barthelman's Appeal Is
THE INSANITY PLEA SCOUTED
THE SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS
The Objection to McComas' Closing
The order denying John H. Barthel
man, convicted of murder In the first
degree with the death penalty attached,
a new trial has been affirmed by the
eupreme court, and the judgment of the
superior court of this county must now
soon be executed.
The case, briefly reviewed, was as fol
lows: Barthelman's wife had been di
vorced from him. He followed her one
evening on the street, while she was
going home with a female friend, and
asked her to give up to him the custody
of their child. When she said "No, the
man drew a revolver and shot the un
fortunate woman several times, inflict
ing wounds from which she shortly aft
erwards died. The murder was cold
blooded and unprovoked, and the testi
mony adduced at the trial before Judge
Smith so proved it to be.
The only defense offered was insanity.
The appeal was mainly based upon the
refusal of the court to give certain ln
etructions to the Jury. The supreme
court says that the court acted very
properly. Neither were the exceptions
taken by the defense In respect to the
allowance of non-expert testimony
With reference to some flights of
rhetoric induged in by Deputy District
Attorney McComas in his closing ad
dress to the jury, which the defense In
its brief had stigmatized as misconduct,
the supreme court tersely says "that
there is nothing in It." He merely used
■well-known historical incidents to Illus
trate his argument. And, moreover, the
court had told the jury that If counsel
for the people went beyond the evidence
or a rational discussion of it, that it was
their duty to disregard it.
The case, in the opinion of the court,
was fairly presented, and it sees no
legal reason to disturb the verdict or
to reverse Judgment.
It will now be the duty of the sheriff
to bring Barthelman back from San
Quentln for the purpose of having him
resentenced and the date of execution
The Evidence Is All in and the Case
Taken Under Advisement
The taking of testimony was resumed
yesterday morning before Judge Clark
in the Creede will case. The contestants
Introduced Ben Goodrich, an attorney,
who testified that John T. Jones, the
attorney for the proponents of the will,
had told him several days after Creede's
death that the trouble was that the
will was not signed. Jones had Just re
turned from San Francisco when he
made that statement.
William Phlfer, a brother-in-law of
Creede's, married to his sister, swore
that he was at the house during the
entire week prior to July 7, 1897, the
date of the signing of the will, and
Creede was not there during that periou
B. Gordan, the South Spring-street
tailor, related that some time after
Creede's death Phifer said to him that
he did not know whether his brother
in-law had left a will or not. Witness
suggested that Phlfer had better go to
an attorney, as Jones was then away
in San Francisco, and Mrs. Creede was
likely to cause trouble. Mr. Gordan,
upon being interrogated upon the sub
ject, announced that Phlfer had told
Attorney Barker, the lawyer whom they
visited subsequently, that he did not
know that there was any will. An at
tempt made by Attorney Gage to make
the witness say that Phifer had said
that Creede had not "left a will," in
stead of "made a will," was not suc
Attorney Donald Barker was not per
mitted to testify, on the ground that
any statements made to him by Phifer
In the afternoon Max Gumpel. the San
Francisco expert, was handed the al
leged will, and after identifying it, he
said that the name of N. C. Creede had
first been stamped upon the paper with
a glycerine stamp, after which it had
been written in ink, or, rather, painted
over with a pen.
A microscope was brought into opera
tion and the signature placed within its
range, for the purpose of allowing the
expert to qualify his statements and ex
plain the mode by which the signature
had been traced over the stamped name.
Mr. Gage offered to submit the case,
but Frank Finlayson objected to this
course, and proceeded to argue his views
on the subject. Later Mr. Gage replied,
and the court then announced that he
would take It under advisement.
A Lawyer Who Denies Everything in
the Arthur Case
Charles H. Arthur, the Pasadena
blacksmith, who murdered Mrs. Melissa
Ransome oh Spring street on the 2r,th of
January last, has not yet entered his
plea in the superior court. At first he
was willing to let the law take its course
at once; now he wants the best legal
talent to defend him. In the meantime
he is struggling along with Lawyer W.
P. Hyatt as best he may. to have the in
formation accusing him of murder set
aside. Mr. Hyatt yesterday filed a doc
ument In support thereof, in -which ev
erything was taken advantage of that
had been brought forward by Durrant's
attorneys at the preliminary stage of his
battle for life, only to be knocked out
piecemeal, as ninepins are in a bowling
The attorney denies the Jurisdiction of
the superior court to try" Blacksmith
Arthur, because he was not Indicted by
the grand Jury, but Informed against by
the district attorney; denies that the
district attorney has power to file an
Information; denies the Jurisdiction of
City Justice Morrison, on the ground
Quoted in the Ah Louie petition for a
writ of prohibition against City Justice
Owens, recently turned down by the su
perior court in bank.
All the other grounds for a dismissal
of the information are just as technical
and untenable as those that precede, and
will no more than those brought forward
to defeat the ends of Justice or delay the
execution of the law in more celebrated
cases, meet with any success.
TOOK A "SNIFTER"
Officer Fowler Gets Into Trouble Over
a Drink of Whisky
A peculiar incident occurred in de
partment one yesterday during the trial
of the Compton forgery case, one of the
prosecuting witnesses, Police Officer
Fowler, being called to account by Judge
Smith from the bench for having intro
duced whisky Into the witness room.
The fact of his having done so was
brought out by Attorney Shinn during
the examination of a man named Boyd
as a witness for the defense. The facts
in the case, as they are given by wit
nesses, are as follows:
Fowler, who Is one of the principal
witnesses for the prosecution, while sit
ting in the witness room awaiting a call
to the stand was yesterday morning
taken ill with a severe chill. His condi
tion was apparent to those present, and
several remedies were suggested. Boyd
thought that a drink of whisky would
be the thing, and at Fowler's request
went out and brought in a 26-cent bottle.
Fowler took a drink and offered those
in the room some. Three refused, but
Boyd and another witness named
Hughes are said to have imbibed. Fow
ler went home at noon too ill to stay up
and called a physician.
When the facts as to the drinking of
the whisky became known In court
from Boyd's statements Judge Smith
expressed surprise at such an act and
cited Fowler to appear before him and
answer for contempt. The latter was
under the care of Dr. Hagan last night.
The physician stated that Fowler was
really ill, having had a severe chill fol
lowed by a high fever, which might de
velop Into serious Illness.
CONTESTS THE WILL
A. C. Drake's Claim That His Father
Was Unduly Influenced
Alfred C. Drake, a son of John C.
Drake, deceased, yesterday tiled papers
contesting his father's will. The elder
Drake died in this county on May 2sth,
1597, but the petition for the probate of
his will was not filed until February Ist,
1898. He left 360 acres of land In North
Dakota, of the value of $3000; in Oneida.
N. V., 170 acres of land valued at $4000,
and evidences of debt aggregating be
tween $6000 and $7000.
The heirs of the deceased were the
contestant, a son by a former marriage.
Mrs. Estelle M. Drake, the widow, and
her minor children. He now alleges thnt
the paper purporting to have been his
father's will was not such; that he never
signed his name to it. nor that the per
sons alleged to have subscribed thereto
did so in effect.
Other allegations are to the effect that
John C. Drake was weak in body and
mind, as the result of a cancer of the
brain, and thus easily and unduly influ
enced. Contestant claims that his step
mother and one Carl Robertson, whose
name appears on the will as one of the
subscribing witnesses, circulated false
and scandalous reports to the father
concerning his son, and told him that if
he willed anything to Alfred he would
soon have It dissipated, and that in con
sequence the elder Drake disinherited
STATUTE OF LIMITATION
An Attorney's Claim Disputed Because
of His Poor Legal Advice
A new trial has been ordered by the
supreme court in the suit of C. J. Per
kins vs. the West Coast Lumber com
pany, appealed from the county of San
Bernardino by the defendant.
C. J. Perkins Is an attorney-at-law,
who was the legal adviser of the lumber
company at a monthly salary. When
the corporation owed him $1879, and it
failed to settle the amount, Perkins sued
and recovered judgment. The company,
however, had put in a counter-claim for
$3400 against its attorney's demand on
the plea that it had been damaged to
that amount by reason of Perkins' bad
legal advice in some prospective litiga
Perkins instituted his action In IS9O,
and the counter-claim was not pleaded
until three years and ten months later.
He then set up that it was barred by the
statute of limitation, but the supreme
court holds that such was not the case
when the counter- claim was filed, be
cause that very filing at the time it was
done suspended the running of the stat
That Is the Charge Preferred Against
E. A. McCombs appeared yesterday af
ternoon at the district attorney's office
wtth a story that W. P. Hyatt, an attor
ney, had collected $150 belonging to him,
which he blew in, and he wanted a war
rant for his arrest.
Edward A.McCombs is a cement work
er of Jefferson street near Rosedale av
enue. He claims that he entrusted the
collection of the sum of $150 in the hands
Of Hyatt In October, 1597. The lawyer
obtained the money all right, but instead
of turning it over to McCombs he put
him off at various times with many spe
cious stories. But the cement man's pa
tience became finally exhausted and he
is now satisfied that his money has been
Justice Young Issued a warrant for the
arrest of Hyatt on the charge of felony
embezzlement, and it was given to Con
stable Yonkin for service.
NO BAIL TAKEN
The Las Virgenes Assailants Held to

HIS VISIT LENGTHENED
KB, TOWNE WILL EXTEND HIS
STAY IN CALIFORNIA
Alteration* In His Itinerary—No More
Speeches but a Little Time for
Hon. Charles A. Towne of Minnesota
has written Mr. Nathan Cole, Jr., re
garding his trip to California, in which
he states he fears greater demands are
likely to be made upon him for speeches
than he has time to spare, and urgently
requests his friends to consider his po
sition in coming west. He expects to
put in nearly all of 1898 on the stump,
and the latter part of this year he knows
will be an arduous one for him. He
contemplates his trip to California be
ing one of great good to the cause, and
has finally consented to deliver a greater
number of addresses than he Intended
when he consented to visit this state.
Mr. Towne will deliver addresses in
the twelve places in California stated
in The Herald of yesterday. In his let
ter referred to. he announces that he
has decided to spend another week in
this state, in order to fully comply with
the wishes of his friends, but absolutely
limits his speeches to the cities already
scheduled. The extension of his stay has
caused a change In the dates of his ad
dresses In several places, and Secretary
Cooper yesterday wired to all places af
fected by the change and announced that
Mr. Towne's itinerary will be as follows,
which corrects the Itinerary published in
The Herald yesterday:
Mr. Towne will speak In Los Angeles
at Hazard's pavilion (as already an
nounced) on next Saturday evening,
His other engagements are:
Ventura, Monday, February 14th, at
1:30 p. m.
Santa Barbara, Monday, February
14th. at 8:30 p. m.

Santa Ana. Monday, February 21st.
Fresno. Wednesday February 23d.
Oakland, Friday, February 25th.

Stockton, Monday, February 28th.
Sacramento, Tuesday, March Ist.
Wednesday morning, March 2d, he will
leave for Oregon, where he will make
several speeches; thence to Washing
ton, to fill a like engagement.
Mr. Towne desired that his itinerary
be so made up that he could have the
pleasure of seeing as much of the more
attractive portions of California as pos
sible during his stay in this state. Sec
retary Cooper has therefore arranged
his schedule so that he can spend an
extra day in Los Angeles, Santa Bar

the conclusion that hereafter they will

of union men, unless the union men care
to be mixed op with non-union men. The
firm has always favored and upheld union
principles, having turned away men who
were not union men, giving the preference
to union laborj but at this time they do
not make any distinction, so that they are
first class men; others need not apply.
