WHAT BEFELL D. B. YANTISS
AND HIS BLUFF
BROOKS SHOT THE COFFEEPOT
An Irate Texan Who Did Not Keep a
Civil Tongue and Was Called
Down With a Shotgun
Edward Brooks, a young farm hand, was
discharged from custody yesterday by Jus
tice Downing at San Pedro after a pre
liminary examination on the charge of as
sault with the Intent to commit murder.
The court room was filled with farmers
of the typical Texas kind, with big bunches
of whiskers on their chins
Th complaining witness, Destos B. Tan
tlss, was one of that kind. He is also
a ranch hand working in the Willows dis
trict, near Wilmington. He testified that
last Sunday morning he was preparing
breakfast in a little cabin at the place
where he works when a dog entered the
place. He said to the dog: "You damn fool,
get out!" and kicked him out. He says that
Brooks, who was in the next field, over
heard him, and called out: "You call me a
damn fool, you ?" Mr. Yantiss
'lowed that no one could call him that,
and he made for the other man to make
him take it back. "He wasn't sure that he
could lick Brooks; maybe Brooks could lick
him; but he was a-going to make him
take that there back." Brooks told him
two or three times to stop, but Yantiss
kept on, and then the defendant, who had
a shotgun, threatened to fire, and did so
when the other was only fifteen feet away.
Then Brooks turned and ran, but not be
fore Yantiss had offered to go to his cabin
and get a Winchester if Brooks was "sot
Deputy District Attorney James asked
the witness if the shot from the gun had
hit him. He said no, but that it had struck
the cabin wall, hit the coffee pot that was
on the stove, letting the coffee flow into
the fire, and that it had also perforated
Toung Brooks took the stand ln his own
behalf and told another story—the one
which was believed. He said that his em
ployer had set him on watch in the field
where he was on Sunday morning to gather
eggs laid by truant hens, and see to It that
the gang at the cabin didn't get away with
them, as they were accused of being in
the habit of doing. Destos B. Yantiss saw
him there and inquired what he was doiny.
snd he replied that he was gathering eggs.
He was on his own ground, but Yantiss
nevertheless ordered him away, calling him
a at the same time. The Texan
started for him. Brooks warned him sev
eral times to come no nearer, but as he
kept advancing he discharged the shot
gun over the fellow's head to scare him
and ran away.

Holloway Wants Big Damages for a
Foot and a Big Toe
The suit of George Holloway against
the Pasadena and Pacific Railway com
pany for $50,345 damages- Is on trial in De

Judge Van Dyke and a jury.
Holloway on the 25th of November
boarded car C.I of the company at Pasa

excursion, after having purchased a re
turn ticket. Owing to its crowded con
dition upon the home trip, he says, he
was obliged to sit on the floor with his
feet on the outside step. Near Rosedale
cemetery, while upon a curve, he was
thrown off the car by a jerk in such an un
fortunate manner that the wheels of the
car passed over both his feet. One of
them had to be amputated and the big toe
of the other foot suffered similar treat
ment. The plaintiff had to pay $250formefl
ical attendance and Jf's for a nurse. For the
injuries received he demanded $50,000.
The Pasadena and Pacific Railway com
pany, on the other hand, claims that a
special car had been provided for the
Pasadena excursionists, which was to
leave at a stated time, but that Holloway
was impatient to get away a little sooner,
and preferred to be uncomfortable ln a
crowded car. Instead of awaiting the de
parture of the other one, in which there
was ample room. The defendant further
alleges that be h3d secured a seat in car
00. but gave It up to another passenger
for the purpose of taking a seat on the
floor, and that if be had used his hands
and his feet while so seated he would not
have fallen off.

what they saw of the accident, which
Fpems to have been the result of a jolt

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 31, 1898
AN EXCITED CROWD
EAGER READERS SURROUND THE
Policemen Necessary to Keep the Side
walk Clear for Pedestrians—The
War Feeling Intense
The bulletin service of The Herald was
resumed again early yesterday morning,
and thousands of men, women and children
learned the very latest news from Wash
ington and Madrid as fast as it came in
over the wires throughout the day, by
means of the bulletins posted in the win
dows of The Herald office on Broadway
and at the many branch offices throughout
The excitement of the multitude that
crowded Broadway, wailing eagerly for
the latest news reached a fever heat at a
few minutes after 9 o'clock, when The Her
ald extra made Its appearance with the full
Associated Press dispatches up to that
hour as well as many special telegrams
and cahle messages bearing on the war
There was a wild rush for the edition.
Without giving up their places ln the front
ranks of the excited crowd, that surged to
and fro, men and women eagerly bought
the first copies of the extra and stood read
ing aloud the dispatches to their less for
tunate neighbors in the throng.
When it became known that Spain had
not yet consented to an armistice in Cuba,
and that she would not allow the Ameri
cans to continue to feed the starving Cu
bans, there arose a prolonged murmur of
disapproval of the course pursued by the
present administration. All were loud In
their denunciation of Spanish cruelty.
Many argued that war should be declared
against Spain at once. Some of the crowd
In their arguments still supported the
policy pursued by President McKinley, but
the majority throughout the day showed
a very marked disapproval of his policy of
Up and down the principal thoroughfares,
where The Herald extras were sold, little
knots of excited men gathered on the street
corners to discuss the situation. Every
thing, even the important details of busi
ness, was neglected and forgotten, while
merchants, bankers, clerks, office attend
ants, laborers, mechanics, cab drivers and
tourists read the dispatches and discus
sed the probability of war with Spain.
Many were the complimentary remarks
on the enterprise of The Herald in being
lirst to make known the important news of
the day by means of Its bulletins and tbe
9 o'clock extra. There was no lack of
patriotism to be seen in the eager faces
or to be heard in the conversation of the
street corner crowds. About noon the crush
In front of The Herald office had grown to
an alarming extent, threatening to block
up that portion of Broadway. Notices
were posted in the windows informing the
turbulent mass of humanity that the police
department requested that the people w*ho
gathered to read the bulletins should not
obstruct the pavement. Officer C'onely,
whose beat is on Broadway, was then in
structed from police headquarters to keep
the passageway and pavement clear, and
not allow the crowd to delay or prevent the
traffic along that portion of Broadway.
Commercial Bodies to Select Framers
of the Measure
A committee from the Merchants and
Manufacturers' association waited upon
the board of directors of the chamber of
commerce at yesterday's meeting and pre
sented a plan for selecting representatives
from each organization to form a com
mittee for the purpose of framing a new
city charter. They requested a meeting
of the two boards to jointly discuss the
proper mode of procedure. On motion, the
request was granted, the date to be ar
ranged to satisfy the convenience of both
Director Newmark. chairman of the com
mittee on railways and transportation, re
ported that the proposition of inducing
Soutii American steamship lines to stop at
this port on their way to San Francisco
could not be carried out, as It was Im
possible to offer the Inducements the
steamship companies would require.
The secretary reported that the collec
tions far defraying the expenses of the
Omaha exposition were very satisfactory,
and that GO per cent of the total amount
subscribed would soon be in the treasury.
Romulo Pico has added to the relic de
partment a copper cannonball found at the
old fort in San Diego; also a stone cannon
bail found seventy feet under ground at
the same fort, and a cannonball fired from
an American vessel into Ouaymas, Mexico.
Tie also exhibits a flat iron 140 years old
and a powder horn from old Mexico.
The chamber of commerce of Santa Ana
adds to the Orange county table an ex
hibit of seedling oranges and an asson
ment of seeds, grain and peanuts.
The Los Alamitos Sugar company makes
an exhibit of granulated sugar.
A. S. Auchincloss of Redlands displays a
cluster of grape fruit.
The Mount Lowe and Catalina people will
construct a revolving album for the pur
pose of exhlbltng photographs of their re
sorts at the Omaha exposition.
A. P. Griffith of Azusa and A. C. Thomp
son of Duarte will make a display of sev
eral varieties of oranges at the exposition.
A Proposition to Bring a Portion of It
to This Oity
A proposition has been submitted to the
Merchants and Manufacturers' association
by Johnson, Carvell & Co. of this city that
will be of great Importance to Los Angeles
and make this city in the near future an
outfitting point to Alaska. This firm is the
agent for the Johnson-Locke Mercantile
company of San Francisco, and the latter
has made arrangements for the running of
a line of steamships between San Fran
cisco and St. Michaels, transferring freight
and passengers there to a fleet of Yukon
river steamers, carrying the freight and
passengers direct to Dawson City. These
steamers are well equipped with all neces
sary conveniences for the accommodation
of 000 to 800 passengers and have a capacity
of 3500 tons of freight each.
If sufficient support to the promoters be
given, the steamers will run direct from
Redondo to St. Michaels and Dawson City,
anil the same rates as to passengers ami
freight will be given as are now charged
from San Francisco or Puget sound points.
It is estimated that a large number of
people will go to Alaska from Southern
California, Arizona and as far east as
Southern Colorado, and it would be more
advantageous to those gold hunters to
equip and outfit in Los Angeles and travel
direct from here to Dawson City than go
to San Francisco or to I'uget sound points,
It is calculated that in this manner at

least 500 prospectors could be Induced to
outfit in this city, and ns each will require
supplies to the value of $400, the arrange
ment proposed will bring at least $200,000 ln
circulation among tho merchants here.
The Merchants and Manufacturers' asso
ciation, realizing the importance of the
movement, yesterday appointed a commit
tee to take the matter in hand and prepare
plans by which intending gold hunters can
be Induced to start from this city.
FELL SEVENTY-FIVE FEET
An Eleven-Yenr-Old Oirl Drops Down
A serious accident occurred to the littie
11-year-old daughter of Peter Hanson Mon
day night, which nearly cost the Ohild
her life. Hanson, who resides on Warren
street, between Eighth and Ninth streets,
sent the littie girl out Into the yard about
S oeiock In the evening to get a bucket of
water from their well. As a general rule
the well is left covered until after the
children have gone to bed, but on this occa
sion the boards had been accidentally left
oft the top. and the child stepped Into the
hole, which is fully sixty-five feet deep.
In falling she struck her shoulders and
head against some projecting timber, and
the right upper rib was driven four inches
through the back. Her father had seen
her fall, however, aud climbed down the
ladder which runs inside the casing, only
just In time to save the girl from drowning
in the five feet of water which the well con
tained at the time. She will recover In time,
but will be confined to her bed for weeks.
From the construction of the well it ap
peared to be a miraculous escape from
dieath. since had she struck head lirst on
any one of the various timber braces she
would undoubtedly have been killed.
WILL GO EAST
Dr. Forest Will Be Taken to New York
Dr. W. E. Forest goes to New York to be
examined on the charge of grand lar
ceny. His attorneys yesterday decided
not to fight the matter further when the
habeas corpus was denied by Judge Van
Dyke. The original complaint charging
Dr. Forest with being a fugitive from jus
tice was dismissed in Justice Morrison's
court yesterday on motion of District At
torney Chambers, as thte charge had been
made merely for thfijiuroose of holding the
defendant until the arrival of the New-
York officer. Detective Sergeant Price
does not intend leaving for the east unfll
tomorrow, with Dr. Forest.
Dr. Forest said last night that he had
prepared a statement for publication, but
on the advice of his attorneys had decided
not to make It public. He had nothing
further to add regarding the charge against
him except to say that he had ln writing
what would prove his innocence in his
transaction with Freeman and McElwee,
and on his arrival in the east would de
mand an immediate trial. Dr. Forest said
that the principal reason why he had been
averse to going east was because it would
interfere with Ids business.
DANGEROUS STREET CROSSING
An Accident Which Nearly Entailed
Owing to the condition of the street In
tersection at Ninth and Alameda streets,
Mrs. L. Bush of 111 F.ast Pico street Irad a
narrow escape from being killed last night.
As Mrs. Bush and her husband and two
friends by the name of Hart were driving
along East Ninth street the wogon struck
a deep gutter running right across the road
at Alameda street. The sudden cup and
concussion with the sides of the excava
tion, which is fully fourteen Inches deep
and lined with rock, caused the wagon to
hound into the air, throwing Mr. Hart and
his wife on to the wagon tongue and Mrs.
Bush entirely out of the vehicle on to the
groundk the wheels passing over her body.
She has not been In good heaith for some
days, and the shock acted very seriously
on her nervous system. She was picked up
and carried into S. N. Bell's residence, at
10' JO East Ninth street, and a doctor was
soon in attendance. The extent of her In
juries, which are internal, Is not known
yet, but it is probable that the accident
will necessitate her laying up for several
days. This crossing is said to have been
the cause of four accidents In the last ten
