TO BE TRIED
Murderer Enters a Plea of
Not Guilty
APPEL'S IDEA DOESN'T WORK
THE MOTION TO SET ASIDE IS
SIMPLY DENIED
Because His Theory in Regard to Police
Court Judges Does Not Apply
to This City
When Blacksmith Arthur was called
upon to plead to the murder of Mrs. Melissa
Ransome, the motion to dismiss the Infor
mation was denied by Judge Smith In a few
words. He held that there was no merit
In the ground alleged by the defense, and
that under the Whitney act the Los An
geles city Justices still have legal jurisdic
tion; that whatever there might be in
counsel's contention that the changed
classification of this city by a late act had
legislated out of office the police court
Judges, It did not apply to this case, and
could not be considered.
Arthur now entered his plea of not guilty
and his case was placed upon the call cal
endar to be set next Monday.
A DRUNKEN FREAK
Ex-Convict Wilson Acquitted of on
Attempted Violent Hold-Up
William Wilson, a hobo, was tried yes
terday in Department one of the superior
court for the crime ot assault with intent
to commit robbery on one J. A. Moreno on
the night of November 22nd last, and ac
quitted by the jury under Instructions of
Judge Smith.
Moreno Is a barkeeper at a saloon on
North Main street culled "Our House."
which entertains pretty rough customers.
Wilson and his partner, John Drew, had
patronized the place, and it was thus that
Moreno recognized them when they ut
tacked him.
He was going home late at night, ac
cording to his testimony, when near the
plaza the men accosted him and asked
for a quarter. He repired that he had no
money, but Wilson insisted that he had,
and said that he was going to have it. Drew
was anxious to withdraw, but Wilson
would not, ami exclaimed: "I am going
to have all he has got." With that he as
saulted Moreno, but failed to get his purse,
containing $78 and a $10 diamond stud, for
both of which he was reaching, as assist
ance came in/ the shapo of Officer Tala
mantes.
The men ran away, but were captured
some time later at the Good Samaritan, a j
lodging house for the poorest class of way
farers, on tipper Main street. It was not
denied that the fellows were drunk at the
time, and It was probably this which led
the court to characterize their conduct as a
drunken freak, while instructing the jury
to acquit Wilson. j
The evidence against John Drew was not
as strong as that against Wilson, and when
the latter was discharged, the deputy dis- .
trlct attorney moved that the information
against Drew be dismissed, which was
done, and both men turned loose, so that
they may Indulge ln a few more drunken
freaks If they feei like it. Wilson is an
ex-convlct.
ONE OF THE PUSH
Mrs. Mary Bentley of Koarney Street '
to Wreak Political Vengeance
J. B. Goytino had until Tuesday for one
of his tenants on Kearney street Mrs.
Mary Bentley, a lady whose sweet temper
and urbane manners are celebrated from
Calabasas down to Gospel swamp. She Is
comprehensively described as a holy ter
ror. Goytino obtained a judgment against
his tenant for rent due and owing, and
a writ of ejection.
Deputy Constable Martin was sent to
Berve it. Mrs. Bentley struck him in the
right eye and did other ladylike things to
demonstrate her disapproval at her en
forced moving. She swore, which was a
relief to her feelings, that she would get
even on Justice Young and Constable Yon
kin because of this Siberian outrage, and
that they would find it out at election time,
because she controlled hundreds of votes.
HIS IDENTITY LOST
Strange Case of a Chinaman Who Was
Struck on the Head
The unknown Chinaman found In a de
mented and filthy condition near the Chap
man ranch, San Gabriel, on the 12th of this
month by Constable M. T. Wright was
yesterday committed to the Insane asy
lum at Highlands by Judge Clark. j
He was recently Injured on the right side
of the head and the scar ls still fresh. He
does not know when or how he was in
jured. Since that time he has forgotten his
identity and knows nothing about his for
mer life. This is ono of the cases of which
novelists have occasionally taken advan
tage to develop an interesting story. He
has been baptised Wong Sue so that he
may go by some sort of a name at the asy
lum, but it is not the name that he had
when he left the middle kingdom.
New Trial Jurors
The new term trial Jury (if Department
one began its work yesterday after a num
ber of the jurors had been excused for
valid cause. Attachments were ordered
issued for several defaulters. Some of the
excuses offered by reluctant jurors were
amusing and others ridiculous. One fat
old gentleman claimed to bo very deaf in
his right ear, the infirmity having been
growing for twenty years. As he heard
exerything tho judge asked him In a very
low tono of voice, it is unnecessary to say
that he did not succeed ln begging off,
whereupon he laughed ns heartily as the
rest at the lnsuccess of his little trick.
Summers's Many Troubles
Last Saturday a young man named D.
Summers threatened to kill his ex-wife
on a Pasadena car. while he was Intoxi
cated. He had no weapon and was merely
booked by Officer Cox, who arrested hini.
for intoxication. Judge Owens fined him
MB, which was paid by his relatives. But
meanwhile the divorced wife had obtained
a new warrant In which he was accused
of threats to kill, and when Summers

who escorted him to the county jail, where
he now is. His examination was set for

AN INFORMAL LUNCHEON
Mr. Towne Meets Ex-Gov. Sheldon at
the Silver Republican Club
A party of distinguished gentlemen, some
of whom have international reputations,
assembled ot luncheon yesterday at the
Silver Republican club. The luncheon was
altogether Informal and the menu con
sisted of simply the good things supplied
every day at the club house. Forty gentle
men were accommodated at the large ta
ble In the dining room and for an hour
all enjoyed the oratory of the club visitors
and a few members.
Congressman Charles A. Towne, ex-Gov
ernor John P. Altgjeld of Illinois and ex-
Governor Lionel A. Sheldon of New Mex
ico were the guests of honor, and of course
all of them spoke, their addresses being
without preparation, but full of'witty pas
sages. Judgp J. W. McKinley, who, by the
way, is a pronounced "goldbug," was also
one of the party. He is an old college
chum of Mr. Towne and had called at the
club to see him. He could not get away
without a speech and he delivered a neat
address, which was repeatedly applauded
by his friends "the enemy, as he styled
them. Messrs. George PaWon, A. J. Utley,
Col. I. E. Messmore and others also spoke.
Next Tuesday evening at 8 oclock a pub
lic reception will be tendered Mr.Towne
at The Herald office. At that time an
opportunity will he given the many ad
mirers of the distinguished visitor tx> meet
him personally. The reception will be en
tirely informal.

IT IS REAL RABIES
EMINENT CANINE AUTHORITIES
i ALL AGREE
The Disease Easily Contracted by the
Germ—Victims Neither Avoid
Water Nor Froth at Mouth
In view of the wide and active Interest
aroused ln the question as to whether or
not the rabies germ ts here or has been
brought into this section of the state a
number of opinions were sought yesterday
from men whose profession has brought
them closely in touch with dogs and the
disease, here and elsewhere.
Dr. R. J. Withers, veterinary editor of
the American Field, who has for years
been at the head of the Chicago Veterinary
college, and who for the past three or
four years has been a practicing veter
inary surgeon in this city, says he sees no
reason why rabies should not be here. He
has heard repeatedly thero was no such
thing here, but as, since June or July, 1897,
he has treated nine cases of It, he is pre
pared to state that whatever may have
been the rase, there ls no doubt but that
the germ has been brought to Los Angeles
in some way.
As rabies is made a subject of test and
experiment ln the Chicago college. Dr.
Withers may reasonably be supposed to
know what he ls talking about, and to
know the disease when he sees It. He
says he is absolutely positive that the
cases lie has treated nre genuine, and i
that no good can result from calling it ,
any other name, or deceiving the public <
ln the matter. t
Dr. Withers Bays climate has nothing to
do with the disease, nor has environment;
statistics show that it is more prevalent
ln cold weather than ln hot; that it is due
to a specific poison—whether of some
micro-organism or toxic poison has never
been definitely determined ns yet; that
skunks, coyotes and wolves are all subject
to It, and its manner of introduction here
Is easily explained by the advent of a dog
which had been bitten either ln the moun
tains or in Arizona by one of the stricken
beasts.
There are two forms, Dr. Withers states,
tho paralytic or dumb rabies, where the
jaw drops, and the violent, where the dog
roams about and barks and bites. The
first symptom is a tendency to depraved
habits: the dog mopes and sneaks off.
wandering about, then comes back to its
home; paralysis siezes the vocal chords
and produces the curious cross between
a bark and a groan that Is an unmistak
able symptom.
There are two widely accepted beliefs
übout rubles that are absolutely wrong—
one Is that water ls repugnant to it, the
other that it foams at the mouth and has
spasms. On the contrary, a dog ln the
last stages of the disease will make per
sistent efforts to drink, but owing to the
paralyzed muscles In his throat he can
not swallow; they never froth or foam at
the mouth, although the saliva may be
Increased a little, and If a dog does foam
and develop spasms It ls a pretty sure
sign of an epileptic fit, rather than rabies.
M. D. Waters, the dog trainer, who ls
also the official dog catcher and is an all
around dog authority, corroborated Dr.
Withers in all essentials, and told of a
specific instance in which he had inocu
lated some guinea pigs with serum from
the brain of a dog that was believed to be
a victim of rabies. In twenty-one days
the disease developed and they died.
He says the brain becomes congested
with the disease, the mouth dry, parched
and very red, and the whole nervous sys
tem is affected. That no especial breed
»f dogs Is liable to It. and that It depends
very much on the physical condition of a
dog that is bitten by a rabid animal
whether or not the disease develops. It
Is a good deal like human beings who are
exposed to smallpox or similar diseases,
if their physical condition ls such as to
render them a prey to disease they are
stricken with it.
In England, Mr. Waters says, rabies has
been reduced to one-fifth of what it used
to be by prompt measures for stamping tt
out whenever It appears. By muzzling all
dogs for the time being and taking a rea
sonable amount of precaution the trouble
is soon entirely overcome. That Is what
Mr. Waters thinks should be done here
now, because he is as positive as Dr.
Withers that there have been and are cases
of genuine rabies here.
Dr. R. T. Whittlesey, the veterinary sur
geon, ls also emphatic in his statement
that he is "thoroughly satisfied" that
rabies has been brought here, whence he
does not know, but he has had a number
of cases since April, 1897, and they were
all the real article. Dr. WhHtlesey con
curs with the other authorities mentioned
ln all the salient points as to symptoms
and manifestations of the disease.
"DIDN'T DO NOTHIN"
How Disturbing Members of a Negro
Club Are "Induced" to Leave
"Long John" . Scott, colored, who
stands six feet three barefooted,
posed as a much eprsecuted man
before Justice Owens yesterday af
ternoon. He had been arrested the
night before by Patrolman Lehnausen for
disturbing the peace of the Manhattan
club, an organization of pronounced color
and odor, but of doubtful order, on Los An
geles street, and before he was landed in
Jail he led the policeman a lively chase
over several blocks. President Brown of
the club told of John's misdeeds In this
fashion: "Youse see, I'se the head presi
dent of the Manhattan. We'sselect. John,
there, he's a member. He comes up to
the. club after Imblbin' drinks of Dago red.
or green, and starts to argufyin'. When I
tries to 'pease his wrathful passions he
didn't see it that way, and so I has to chas
tise him. Of course, he becomes worse
and worse obstreckerous, and we decides
he must be moved. Me and one or two
or three others wo moves him. We leads
him to the stairs and then Induces him to
leave. He takes the i nducement In a
hurry, for there war three or four pushin'
him. When he gets to the street, Mr. Po
liceman, he grabs him. and here he ls."
The officer told of the arrest, and of his
sprinting match, and then the defendant
declared it all "a outrageous falsehood,"
saying he "didn't do nothin'." Justice
Owens thought It was merely n case of too
much whisky, and fined John $10, or in lieu
thereof gave him ten days in Jail.
CONDUIT LAYING
Why a Concrete Base Is Not Put in on
Paving Replacement
Street Superintendent Drain ls besieged
by kickers every day, who come to com
plain of the manner in which the paving
companies now putting down the under
ground conduits on Broadway and cross
streets are replacing the street. Nearly
every person seems to have tho idea that
the foundation of Broadway is concrete,
and think that the company ls shirking Its
duty when they see no cement going into
tho work.
As a matter of fact, the foundation not
only of Broadway, but of First. Third,
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth streets ts of
broken rock, while the other streets have
a concrete base. It is beyond the power
of the street superintendent to compel the
company to replace the paving with any
other material than of the same kind as
ls taken out. He has requested tho San
Gabriel company to put In a concrete base,
but cannot compel it to do so, save where
the street is of such material.

store of A L. Affell, on First street, be

days ago, where he secured nearly $200

GUILTY OF POOL SELLING
▲ Jury So Declares F. Weitzel After
Two Days' Trial
F. Weitzel was found guilty of violating
the antl-bookmakJng and pool selling or
dinance yesterday by a Jury In Justice
Owens' court. The case had taken nearly
all of two days, the entire first day being
consumed In the selection of a jury. The
hearing of the evidence began yesterday
morning at 9 o'clock, and by noon the
case was completed. The jury was out
twenty minutes before returning a verdict
of guilty.
Weitzel was formerly a bookmaker at
some of the big race courses of the country.
After the close of the fall race meeting
at Agricultural park he opened a book here
on the rao?s~at San Francisco and other
tracks.
The conviction ln this case was one of the
first that has been secured here on such
a charge. From time to time several al
leged bookmakers have been arrested, but
they have almost Invariably escaped pun

failure by the prosecution to present suf

Justice Owens will pass sentence on
Weitzel tomorrow.
GONE TO THE KLONDIKE
Heinish Was Not to Be Stopped in His
Search for Gold
H. A. Helnlsh, formerly of this city, is
now on his way to Alaska, after having
twice escaped from officers of the law. He
was one of the party on board the steamer
Alice Blanchard. which sailed from San
Pedro last Thursday. A warrant had been
Issued for his arrest on a charge of fall
ing to support his family, and an officer
was sent to San Pedro to serve it. The
much-wanted man could not be found, and
the steamer sailed. The warrant was
then mailed to San Francisco, and when
the Alice Blanchard arrived Uiere Heinish
was arrested. He put up a cash bond of
840 and the case was to have been tried cm
the day that the Blanchard left San Fran
cisco. The accused failed to appear in
court and could not be found by the officer.
It is supposed that he got away on the
steamer. Heinish Is said to have left hi*
family destitute here, taking with him all
the money he could raise on their household
effects.
Why Kirriemuir Is Famous
Not long ago I wa traveling from Aber
deen to Perth. A man sitting opposite
studied me for a minute, slid then, evi
dently being convinced that I had average
intelligence and could appreciate a great
sight if I saw it. he said: "If you will
stand up with me at the window I will
show you something in a minute. Tou
will only get a glimpse suddenly and for
an Instant." I stood. He said: "Can you
see that?" I saw some smoke and said so.
He said: "That ls Kirriemuir." I sat down
and ho sat opposite me and watched my
face to see that the fact that I had had a
glimpse of Klrriiemuir, or rather of its
smoke, was one thoroughly appreciated
and would carry In retentive memory for
the rest of my life. Then I said: "Mr.
Barrle was born there." "Yes," he said,
"he was; and I was born there myself."—
From a speech by lan Mclaren.
French Penalty on Obesity
Fat men must be on their guard when
traveling on French railroads. A 340-pound
citizen of Lille who had bought a third
class ticket, after failing to wedge through
the doors of a third-class and of a second
class carriage, entered a flrst-class com
partment and rode to his place of destina
tion. The railroad sued him for the dif
ference In the fare, to which his defense
was that, having sold the ticket the com
pany was bound to provide doors to the
third-class carriages that would admit
him. The court, however, held that he
must have known his own girth and the
size of the carriage doors, and should have
bought a ticket admitting him to a wide
enough compartment. It refrained from
making him pay for excess weight.
Shaving Rules in Paris
The sanitary authorities of Paris have
Issued Btringent Instructions to barbers,
Informing them that all metal Instruments
must be plunged directly after use Into
boiling soapy water. All combs of tor
toise shell, ivory or celluloid must bo re
placed as far as possible by metal, so as
to be more easily cleaned and disinfected.
Scissors, razors, clippers and brushes must
be heated to 10(1 degrees centigrade, or
placed ln a receptacle containing a pre
scribed chemical solution before use. Shav
ing brushes must be dipped In boiling
water. Instead of powder puffs, blowers
must be used. Finally, hairdressers must
wash their hands before passing to an
other customer.
Queer Bequest of a Gambler
A citizen of Kharkoff, Russia, recently
purchased a statue of Apollo Belvldere,
which one of his children soon afterward
overturned and broke. Out of its hollow In
terior rolled a little bundle, which, on be
ing opened, was found to contain Russian
bank notes to the value of 3000 rubles, to
gether with a declaration of one Chevalier
Ironun Prokhcroff, to the effect that the
money contained in the handkerchief was
Ihe proceeds of hfs*gamblin« transactions,
and was designed to build a church. The
slip bore a date In the year 1840. It Is sup
posed, therefore, that tbe owner died sud
denly, and thus was unable to carry out
his pious design.
Feeling the Earth's Pulse
The fanciful notion which men used
sometimes to entertain that the earth is,
in some sense, a living thing would prob
ably have derived support from the re
cent observations of Professor John Milne
and others on the shivers and quivers that
frequently run through its rocky frame,
but escape notice except when watched
for with specially constructed and exceed
ingly delicate apparatus) Professor Milne
reports that apparatus of this kind has
now been mounted in Canada, British Col
umbia, the United States, South Africa,
New Zealand, Java, India and Argentina,
as well as In England and at various places
on the continent of Europe.
His Wife Forgave Him
William Lowo was given his liberty in
the police court yesterday, after having
spent several days ln Jail. He was arrest
ed at the Instance of his wife on a charge
of making threats to kill. She declared
that he became enraged at her, while he
was drunk, and threatened to take her
life. After the arrest was made the wife
relented and used every effort to secure
her husband's release. It was explained
to the court that the couple had become
reconciled and the charge against Lowe
was not pressed.
