MUCH NEEDED
A Decision on the Status
of Police Judges
ONE WAY OR THE OTHER
FOWLER'S EXPLANATION SATIS-
FIES THE COURT
He Had a Bona Fide Chill—Suit on a
Freeze-Out Game —Bad Conduct
of Mary Leach
There arc now three cases in the su
perior court in which the legal existence
of the police judges of this city Is ques
tioned. They may be all decided before
the middle of next week, and in Justice
to everybody they should be, one way or
another. Officer Fowler satisfactorily
explained his use of whisky In the wit
ness room on Monday and was purged of
contempt. The and the
Wiillamses, who constitute the I'acilic
Oil Refining and Supply company, are
at war on a game of freeze out. A burg
larious negro junk dealer was sent to
Folsom for one year and William H.
Barnes, the young Englishman who
forged checks to procure money for
riotous living was let off with two years
at San Quentin. In both cases Judge
Smith was merciful to the culprits, each
of whom had more than one accusation
to his credit. The other forger, Charles
Compton, was given a bad name by a
number of prominent citizens. His
case may be expected to reach the
hands of the Jury this afternoon.
FOWLER HAD A CHILL
The Contempt Proceedings Dismissed
After the Officer Explains
Police Officer F. M. Fowler was called
up before Judge Smith yesterday to
•how cause why he should not be pun
ished for contempt in having been guilty
of conduct unbecoming an officer cf
the law in the witness chamber of De
partment one of the superior court.while
the same was in session on Monday af
ternoon.
"Mr. Fowler," said the judge. "I heard
a very' bad report about you yesterday.
You gave a man money to get you a bot
tle of whisky and it was taken into the
witness room."
The accused officer answered that he
should prefer to make a sworn state
ment, but the court not thinking this
necessary, be explained that he had be
come very sick on Monday afternoon
with chills and fever, and not being per
mitted to return home by the attorneys
for the prosecution, was thinking of
taking some medicine when Boyd, the
fellow who afterwards on the stand in
the Compton case reported the matter,
suggested himself that whisky would be
a great help, and volunteered to get it.
Fowler gave him money sufficient to
purchase a pint flask and Boyd brought
It to him, when the officer drank some
and the accommodating messenger also
took a gulp.
The Judge said that the idea of a bot
tle of whisky being brought among wit
nesses In the courtroom was absolutely
reprehensible and could not be over
looked. The court had no objection to a
man himself taking a stimulant as a
medicine, but offering it to others was
grievously wrong. It was very annoy
ing that such a thing should have oc
curred.
Officer Fowler admitted his mistake,
but said he was so sick at the time that
he was not quite himself and he had no
recollection of having offered any of the
stuff to anyone else but Boyd. Roth
Deputy District Attorney McComas and
Lawyer Earl Rogers came to the rescue
of the officer, stating that he was un
doubtedly suffering from a severe chill
and was not permitted to leave the
courthouse when, as a matter of fact,
he should have been at home. Mr. Mc-
Comas thought that it was really Boyd
who wanted a snifter, and suggested it
to Fowler as a medicine, because he
hoped to get a "wad" himself.
After a few words of warning. Judge
Bmlth told the policeman that his ex
cuse was accepted and the alleged con
tempt purged.
FREEZE-OUT GAME
The Maginnis People and the Pacific
Oil Refinery and Supply Co.
Mrs. Alice Maglnnis and her husband,
A. P. Maginnis, have commenced a suit
against the Pacific Oil Refining and
Supply company (incorporated), and
other parties, to enjoin them from sell
ing 997 shares of stock of the corporation
to pay an alleged delinquent assessment
of $1994.
The stockholders of the company are
Mrs. Alice G. Williams, who has 1000
shares; James H. Hurin, F. H. Polndex
ter and Henry L. Williams, who each
own one and Mrs. Maglnnis, who has the
balance of the 2000 shares of the capital
stock. In her complaint tlie lady, who
is afraid of being "froze out," alleges
that H. L, Williams, the husband of
Mrs. Alice Williams, is the power behind
the throne; that the stock in his wife's
name is only held in trust by her for his
benefit, and that the other defendants
were presented by him with one share
apiece so as to qualify them to act as
directors in his personal and private
board, at which they vote just as Wil
liams wants them to.
In May, 1897, F. H. Poindexter, ac
countant, reported that the corporation
was indebted to President Williams in
the sum of $38,873.52, money advanced,
and $3750 as salary for twenty-five
months at $150 per month, up to May Ist.
1897. The directors acknowledged tie
full debt and it was further resolved
that the monthly salary of $150 should bt
continued after May Ist of last year.
The Maginnissea emphatically deny
that Williams ever advanced any sum
whatever to the Pacific Oil Refining and
Supply company, and that the board of
direc tors knew it to be so. In Decemb r
the next move war made by the board,
so the complaint continues, In that they
ordered the levy of an assessment of S2
per share, payable on or before January
21st at the company's ofllce. 816 Wilcox
block, delinquent stock to be sold on
February Sth to pay such assessment.
Plaintiffs allege that the only indebt
edness now existing against the com
pany is a note to the Citizens' bank for
13000, which will not be mature till July
IS, next, and that the only purpose for
which the move of the board of direct
ors was made waß to acquire Mrs. M»
glnnls' stock and freeze her out.
Judge Shaw Issued a tempore ry in
junction which was served before the
stock could be sold yesterday and or
dered the case set for hearing in his de
partment.
ARTHUR ARGUMENTS
Attorney Appol Speaks on the Lack of
Jurisdiction of City Justices
The argument on the motion to set
aside the information charging Charles
H. Arthur, the Pasadena blacksmith,
with murder, was heard by Judge Smith
yesterday morning. Attorney Horace
Appel presented the law points involved,
the chiefest of which was the alleged
lack of Jurisdiction of City Justice Mor
rison to hear the preliminary examina
tion of the murder charge preferred
against Arthur. The lawyer also claimed
that the prisoner had not been given
sufficient time for tt, but had been rail
roaded from the committing magis-
office into the superior court.
As these contentions that the city
justices have been legislated out of of
fice by reason of the provisions of the
Whitney act no longer apply to Los An
geles are becoming unpleasantly fre
quent In cases where the people are op
posed to an application ot too-oft re-
Iterated delays, it is to be hoped that
the matter may be squarely tackled by
one of the superior Judges soon, and not
dodged, so that an opinion from the su
preme court may thereafter lay the mat
ter at rest.
Deputy District Attorney Willis was
not prepared to answer Mr. Appel's ar
guments at once and could give no au
thorities, as none exist, upon the point
at issue, but he asked until today to
file the opinion of the superior court In
bank In the case of Ah Louie vs. Police
Judge Owens. Judge Smith will proba
bly give his decision on the motion to
set aside the information today and re
quire Arthur to plead at once if it be de
nied.
Mr. Oage is by no means engaged in
the defense of tbe case yet. Mr. Appel
appeared yesterday for Mr. Gage in the
proceedings and Mr. Hyatt was una
voidably detained elsewhere from tak
ing part In them. If Mr. Gage is retained
Mr. Appel will also be, and then a vigor
ous legal battle for the life of the mur
derous blacksmith may be expected, and
the old chestnut of temporary insanity
resorted to once again.
UNFAITHFUL MARY
Hiram Leach of Elizabeth Lake Has
Just Cause of Complaint
Hiram-M. Leach, a farmer from Eliz
abeth Lake, applied yesterday at the
district attorney's office for a felony
complaint charging his wife. Maty 1...
nee Andrade, and a Frenchman, who
has also a ranch about four miles a way
from the Leach homestead, with adul
tery and open and notorious cohabita
tion. After he bad told his woes a com
plaint was issued and lie was directed
to take it to Justice of the Peace Buck
ley of Pulmdale, who would issue a war
rant for the arrest of the culprits.
Leach has had all sorts.of trouble
with his wife, who is a Mexican woman,
31 years of age. They were married in
188!), but have no children. A too great
fondness for other men caused Leach to
separate from her four years ago. and
he has since tried twice to get a divorce
from his unfaithful spouse, but some
unforeseen hitch spoiled his calcula
tions.
Augustin Ferrler. the man in the case,
has resided in the Elizabeth I#ake dis
trict for a number of years, and he
has a quarter section partly Improved,
upon which he has not yet finally proved.
The undue Intimacy of Ferrler, who
is 4U years of age. and Mrs. Leach has
been a matter of comment up that way
for some time. In order that none of
the gossips should be mistaken as to
their relations, the Leach woman took
up her abode with the Frenchman on
his ranch on December 15th, and is
there still. Tbe much-suffering Hiram
thinks now that If he can secure a con
viction against '.hem, but Mary prin
cipally, there is a chance yet that his
divorce suit will come out all right.
CHINESE HABEAS CORPUS
A Le?al Status That Should Be Deter
mined One Way or Other
Acting upon the suggestion of the
judges of the superior courts in their
opinion on the Ah Louie petition for a
writ of prohibition against Police Judge
M. T. Owens, the attorneys who have
the Chinese clientele resolved to bring
the matter of the legality of the police
judges of this city to an issue by means
of the writ of habeas corpus. For this
purpose one Ah Sang, arrested by Spe
cial Officer Ross Phillips on December
12,1897. on the charge of unlawfully deal
ing and playing fan tan through the
medium of nickels, a bowl, a stick and
dominoes for money, and arraigned be
fore D. C. Morrison, police Judge, was
surrendered by his bondsmen to the
custody of the chief of police yesterday,
and his petition for a writ of habeas
corpus filed In the superior court. Th"
illegality of Ah Bang's arrest and de
tention in the city jail is gone into fully
in the petition, and covers the entire
ground made use of in the Ah Louie case.
The writ came up for hearing before
Judge A'an Dyke this afternoon, the pe
titioner being represented by Messrs
Appel & Whitney and Marble & PhlbbS,
and the chief of police by Special Deputy
City Attorney Chambers. The latter
gentleman stated that he was not ready
to proceed with the case at this time.
Judge Van Dyke suggested then that
it be continued for hearing until aftei
the court in bane decides the matter of
the city of Los Angeles vs. W. W. Ev
erett and his bondsmen, which involves
the same points as the present case, no
tably the legal existence of police judges
and police clerks under the Whitney
act in the city of Los Angeles. This will
be heard on Friday in Department six.
All parties being agreeable, the hear
ing of Ah Song's petition was then set
for next Monday morning by Judge Van
Dyke, and the prisoner was released on
bonds given by Ms friends. On Monday
he will again go through the cere
mony of being surrendered to keep up
the legal fiction that he is restrained of
his liberty.
THIEVING "J'trNKSTER"
A Coon With a New Name Goes Up to
Folsom for Burglary
James .McCoy, a big. black man, who
had in police circles the reputation of
keeping his Junk shop stocked by steal
ing the articles which he kept on sale,
pleaded guilty in Department one yes
terday to one information charging him
with burglary. Another one was then
dismissed by consent. In each case the
crime consisted in forcibly entering
LOS ANGELES HERALDt WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 9, JB9B
premises and therefrom stealing sets of
harness, which Is McCoy's specialty In
crime, as much as the selling of them is
In business.
McCoy's attorney explained. In miti
gation of the burglar's conduct, that he
was a "Junkster," at which the court
cocked up his eyebrows interrogatively.
It developed that a "Junkster" Is a par
ty who keeps a Junk shop. This reason
not being deemed sufficient by Judge
Smith to satisfactorily explain why Mc-
Coy "burgled" as a steady business, he
turned to the prisoner himself, who said:
"Yo' honah! Ah had bin trying to get
along nicely, but de perlice wouldn't let
ma. They found the harness In mah
house and sed dat I had stolen It."
"And so you had," said the judge, as he
let the black man off with one year at
Folsom, and granted him two days' stay
of execution in which to settle his sec
ond-hand business and bid good-by to
his wife and child.
FORGER BARNES GOES UP
Allowed to Plead Guilty to One Charge.
Two Years in San Quentin
William H. Barnes, the young English
man who has lately been victimizing lo
cal saloon keepers by foisting upon them
spurlos checks and pocketing the
amounts they called for, was permitted
to plead guilty to one charge of forgery
yesterday, with the understanding that
the two others would be dismissed. The
attorney for the defense made a plea for
his client of former good conduct and
attempted to palliate the crimes by say
ing that Barnes had given these checks
expecting to be prepared to take them
up himself when he received returns
from his gold mine. These explanations,
of course, left the circumstance of the
forgery of fictitious names as a matter
of business for the purpose of "raising
the wind" unexplained. There is no
doubt, however, that the prisoner had
some influential friends left in his
trouble, and some of these were present
to say a good word for him.
Judge Smith, however, contented him
self with the statement or the attorney,
and, after reading his usual little lec
ture to Barnes, sent him to San Quentin
for two years.
A BAD REPUTATION
Given to Charles Compton by Promi
nent People of This City
The whole of the evidence introduced
by the defense in the Compton forgery
case was In yesterday at 3 p. m. At that
time counsel for defendant moved that
nearly all the evidence presented by the
prosecution tending to shew that there
existed a conspiracy between the defend
ant, Compton, and Davis and Howard,
be stricken out. These motions em
braced nearly all the testimony of a
character that must necessarily convict
the prisoner, if tbe jury should bring in
a verdict uf guilty. The court promptly
and firmly denied these motions.
Numbers of witnesses were next called
by the people to prove the character of
defendant, Compton, and they all cheer
fully testified that for truth, honesty and
Integrity it was bad. Among the wit
nesses who knew the unsavoriness of
Compton's reputation were Supervisors
Hanley and Davis, Cashier Howe of the
First National bank and Secretary Hart
of the Southern California Music com
pany.
Karl Rogers opened the argument for
the prosecution shortly afterward. It Is
very likely that the addresses to the jury
will be concluded In time to permit the
case to go to It before the close of the
afternoon session today.
Pattison Divorce Case
The divorce case of Mary J. Pattison
against her aged husband, James H. W.
Pattison, in which cruelty is alleged,
is now on trial with closed doors in De
partment three and likely to last several
days. The cruelty of Mr. Pattlson did
not consist so much, according to Mrs.
Pattison's story, in being guilty of it
himself as in permitting It on the part
of his grown children by a former mar
riage. The lady married the old gentle
man for his supposed wealth, which had
been transferred from his control to
that of others without her knowledge.
The particulars of the case were fully
published several months ago.
Sells No More Meat
Henry C. Hergott yesterday filed his
petition in Insolvency. He and Rudolph
Weiman were in partnership as butchers
at the Cheapside market. 2246 Smith Main
street, under the firm name of Herget.t
& Co. The parties became financially
involved and were attached by H. R.
Hinsen, assignee of the Cudahy Packing
company. The firm owes $537.02, and the
personal liabilities fit Mr. Hergett are
$1488.45 more. The fixtures, horses and
wagons and book accounts due are val
ued at $664.45. butt are subject to the
suit of H. R. Hinsen.
New Suits
The Second Baptist church of this city
yesterday petitioned for permission to
mortgage lot 29 of the Maple-avenue
tract to the American Baptist Home
Mission society of New York for $350.
A foreclosure of mortgage suit was
Bled by the Farmers and Merchants'
bank to recover from H. Granville
Peets et al. $8673 on a note assigned
by Richard Garvey to the corporation
and secured by forty acres in the rancho
Botrero Grande.
The Case Dismissed
Judgment dismissing the cause and
for costs against the plaintiff was yes
terday signed by Judge Van Dyke in
Department four in the case of B. L.
Mills vs. S. G. Spier. The suit was upon
an alleged promissory note for $1500.
Defendant demurred to the complaint,
which demurrer was sustained without
leave to plaintiff to amend, and the
above-mentioned judgment followed.
Naturalized
Thomas W. Herbert, a native of Scot
land, was naturalized yesterday by
Judge Shaw in Department five of the
superior court.

WOMAN'S REFORM LEAGUE
Socialism and Charity the Subject of
Rev. Bliss's Lecture
The regular meeting of the woman's
department of the Onion Reform league
was held yesterday afternoon at Guild
hall, with the usual large attendance.
Preliminary to the address. Rev. W.
D. P. Bliss announced that during his
! absence from the city for the next two
weeks Dr. Moore of Santa Barbara
would deliver the lectures —next week
on "Direct Legislation.'' and on that fol
lowing "Public Ownership."
The subject of the address of the
afternoon w as "The Relation of Charities
ito Socialism."
"Socialists." said the speaker, "enter
into the movement from two standpoints,
humanltarlanlsm and justice, but more
largely from the former motive. Work
lngmen's organizations do not want
charity, but justice and equality, conse
quently we llnd among them an antag
onism to charity. The word 'charity' is
used in the modern sense of relief, and
not in the old Greek sense of love. The
modern charity has grown up with an
evolution of its own. Associated char
ity had its rise in London with the prison
work of Dr. Chalmers, and In America
in the city of Boston. Many Socialists
oppose the associated charities move
: ment. With an implied sneer at its stat
l lstical attitude. The poor feel that they
want work and cannot get it, and. though
! people may try to relieve their wants
i with the kindliest feeling, they resent
j it. They want to be independent, and
when they cannot, they become hyper
sensitive. The feeling underlying this
', is born of a self-respecting manhood and
womanhood.
"We are the creatures of early en-
I vironment, and when we consider tbe
surroundings of the poor, the wonder
Is that they are as noble and kind as they
! are. The person who is not dependent
|on work cannot realize the difficulty of
obtaining it, and the poor feel that an
attempt to analyze their poverty is an
j insult. "
"Said an eminent writer: 'The philan
thropy that proposes to relieve suffering
postpones the philanthropy that im
proves conditions.' This is what tho
i poor feel and express in a coarser way.
; but they must not be left to suffer and
j die while Socialism is coming; therefore,
! we need charities.
, ' Women can do as much for Socialism
ias they have done for charity."
TO BE TRIED TODAY
Neath and Brown Must Answer for
Disturbing the Peace
Harry Neath and A. H. Brown, for
whose arrest warrants for disturbing the
peace were sworn out Monday at the in
stance of Chief of the Fire Department
Moore and Assistant Chief Smith, were
presented before the police court yester
day afternoon at 1:30 oclock by Officer
Henderson. The cases were continued
until this afternoon at 3 oclock, in order
that both sides could have an opportun
ity to secure the attendance of witnesses.
The two men were released on bonds.
Both tho defendants had expected that
they would be charged with turning in
false alarms of fire, but, instead, the
charge was that of disturbing the peace.
It is based upon the alleged misconduct
of the two men last Thursday night,
when they went to the quarters of chem
ical engine company No. 3 and aroused
the members by yelling: "Fire!" The
horses were released and hitched up, the
firemen supposing, of course, there was
a fire In the immediate vicinity of the
engine house. At this Neath and Brown
hooted at them and called them vile
names. It is probable that the addition
al charge of impeding the progress of a
fire engine while responding to an alarm
will be preferred against the men.
Highwaymen on Wheels
A wheelman of West Forty-sixth street,
New York, was not long since attacked,
robbed and left senseless by two highway
men mounted on bicycles In Central park.
Repeated accounts of robberies by men
mounted upon the swift revolving wheel
have apeared In the papers in various
parts of the country. In each Instance, so
far as learned, they have evaded the po
lice. Those depredators of the health, dis
eases of the kidneys and bladder, will
likewise in all likelihood escape arrest,
and pursue their atrocious career un
checked, unless they are arrested In the
outset by the potent intervention of Hos
tetter's Stomach Hitters, the finest di
uretic, as well as tonic, known to modern
times. The genial preventive named Is the
best known medicinal safeguard, not only
against renal, but also rheumatic and
malarial disorders. It Is at the start that
disease is the more easily and completely
overcome. The use of the Witters is fol
lowed by the happiest results In cases of
dyspepsia, constipation, liver complaint
and nervousness.

LOCAL TRAFFIC NEWS
SANTA FES BURNED TUNNED IS
OPEN TO TRAFFIC
Today's Trains Will Go Through With
out Any Transfer of Passengers
Rainfall at Various Points
The Santa Fe officials looked very hap
py yesterday afternoon when the news
came from Williams, where the burned
out tunnel Is, that the debris had been
removed and that traffic through It
could be resumed today. The work of
putting in the steel lining, It was calcu
lated, would be completed this forenoon,
so that the train which will leave here
this morning will be able to go through
without any transfer of the passengers.
The road has been blocked by the burn
ing of this tunnel very nearly three
weeks, and during that time it has been
obliged to pay the Southern Pacific com
pany a tremendous aggregate for mile
age of the trains the latter company
hauled over Its tracks.
The expense of repairing the tunnel
has been something disheartening, also,
as the work had to be done twice, on
account of the fire breaking out the
second time, after the repairs of the
first conflagration had been completed.
The affair will be responsible for an
amount to be numbered by not less
than six figures, not to speak of the
wear and tear of officials.
THE RAINFALL
The rainfall was not as deep as a
well, nor as big as a sea, but it will
! serve—for the time. From the reports
made yesterday morning by the station
j agents of the Southern Pacific company
the fololwing figures are obtained. Tbe
first represents the fall for the twenty
four hours ending at 7 oclock yesterday
| morning, the second the amount for this
season to date, and the third the amount
for last season:
Redlands, .40; 5.07; 11.31
Crarton, .37: 5: 12.03.
Ontario, .45; 6.05; 10.05.
Port Los Angeles, .10: 2.58: 12.37.
San Gabriel, .33; 4.45: 11.83
Duarte, .16; 4.02; 10.58.
Whlttier, .33; 4.90; 12.13.
NOTES OF TRACK AND TIE
The Southern Pacific will send an ex
cursion train on Tuesday next to Snn
! Fernando mission. The travelers will
be met by the citizens of that place,
j who will have vehicles to take them to
! the old mission, show them the largest
j olive orchard in the world, and end the
festivities with an old-time barbecue.
Five passenger trains arrived from the
east yesterday over the Southern Pa
cific line, all of them loaded to their
full capacity.
HE IS KNOWN HERE
W. H. Griffiths of Leadville and His )
Local Career J
The Associated Press dispatches of )
yesterday morning contain a story j
about the indictment in New York of
William it. Griffiths of Leadville, pro
prietor of a newspaper of that city. The
charge was that of grand larceny, and
was based on a sale of three $.">OOO notes |
to R. J. Bolles of Denver, which were
endorsed by Mr. Griffiths. The indict- ,
ment was dismissed by Judge Fitzger
ald on the ground that Its subject was ;
a matter for a civil suit rather than a
criminal prosecution. One of the en- j
dorsers was Earl B. Coe, who is now a ■
police commissioner of Denver and who
appeared before the grand Jury as a I
witness in the interest of Bolles.
The (irlfllths mentioned Is well known |
in this city, or at least a man of the
same name, who is proprietor of a
Leadvllle paper, is well known here,
having some three years ago resided
here, and at that time was largely inter
ested In a mining venture at Riverside,
including the Santa Rosa mine. He
w as also concerned in a number of other
deals here, but none of them amounted
to much.
Just before bis departure for the east
he married a young lady of this city,
and they started for Colorado together,
but she was taken ill at San Bernardino
and he left her there and has not re
turned since. The Incident caused oon- j
Blderable gossip at the time, and it wan |
thought that a suit for divorce would
result, but as far as learned yesterday j
no such proceedings have been brought.
The young lady has remained here with j
her family ever since.
