Attorney Brooks Sues for an Account
ing From a Client —News of the
Courts—New Suits Filed
It did not take Judge Shaw long to exam
ine into the merits of the contempt proceed
ings against Gregory Perkins. Jr., and At
torney Dunning. The matter was submit
ted to him on Monday and yesterday after
noon he ordered that the defendants be dis
chargtd. There was no opinion rendered,
the court simply ordering the following en
try to be made relative to the disposition of
the matter;
"The court finds that E. T. Dunning and
Gregory Perkins, Jr., are not guilty of con
tempt, and it is therefore ordered that they
be discharged."
The proceeding was instituted by Attor
ney L. C. Whitney, counsel tor Herman
Kolm, last Tuesday, and was against Greg
ory Perkins, Jr., and Attorney Dunning,
secretary and counsel for the board of trade
respectively. The matter was incidental to
a settlement of the affairs of Kolm Bros.,
insolvents, and the action was based on the
idea that the defendants had conspired tc
hold up certain moneys which Judge Van
Dyke had decided belonged to Herman
Kolm, who was not a member of the insol
vent firm.
No Other Alternative for Defendant
in a Divorce Suit
Judge Shaw does not believe in hearing a
case unless it is presented to his court with
due regard for all the little technicalities
of law, and this belief yesterday led him to
refuse consideration of an oral motion be
cause it had not been filed in proper form.
The action was in connection with the di
vorce proceeding of Louise F. Sargent
against Louis Y. Sargent. The parties were
married In June of 1593, and after raising
a child to the age* of 3 years separated in
February, ISW7. the wife subsequently
charging that Sargent deserted her, and on
that ground she brought suit for a divorce,
alimony and custody of the child. The de
cree was granted on June 2 of this year in
Judge Van Dyke's court, the defendant be
ing l ordered to pay his wife $5 per month to
ward the support of the child. This he had
failed to do In the two months sincepassed,
the wife therefore asked the court tc
force Sargent to comply with the order.
The defendant was ordered'to appear yes
terday to show cause why he should not
be held for contempt.
The matter came up before Judge Shaw,
and Sargent's attorney had an answer pre
pared In which he embodied a motion al
leging that the wife is living at No. 225 West
First street as a common prostitute and
therefore is not a fit person to continue in
custody of the now 4-year-old child; tha*
the defendant's uncle, a Long Beach phy
sician, is willing to adopt the offspring, and
praying the court to change the former or
der so as to place the child in the care of
this relative of the defendant's. This an
swer had not been filed with the clerk,
however, nor had the $2 filing fee been paid,
and on leurning this fact th* court peremp
torily ordered thnt Sargent be eonrmitti'd
to jail until he paid the alimony as or
Sargent, who is a butcher on Vermont av
enue near Washington street, but was for
merly a sprinkling cart driver, dug down
and paid the alimony instanter, and the
"widow by grass" went her way rejoicing
accompanied by an admiring male friend,
who sat by her during the proceedings and
seemed to share all h-.r emotions as tho case
But J. "Mary Ann" Brooks Was After
the Whole Thing
Attorney Brooks, better known by the
sobriquet "J. Mary Ann," was the plaintiff,
through Attorney R. J. Colyear, ln a suit
against Frank Aguello and Y. Luce-re
heard in Justice Young's court yesterday
It seems that some time last year P. H.
Lucere, a barber at 417 North Main street,
was arrested and held to answer in the
t nlted States court to the charge of mail
ing an obscene letter. Brooks & Trask
were employed to defend' him, and there
was some agreement between Y. Lucere,
Frank Aguello, who are respectively broth
er and brother-in-law to P. H. Lucere, and
the latter's attorneys, by which they were
to pay the attorneys' fees. There was no
written agreement, however. The attor
neys performed their work well and their
client was discharged. Aguello paid $40
toward the fee before the trial of the case,
and now claims that was all he agreed to
pay. The attorneys insisted that their fee
was to be $100, and that both sureties were
responsible for the whole or any part of
the amount.
Aguello was obdurate and seemed so sin
cere ln his assertion that he had' paid/ as
per the agreement that the court disregard
ed Attorney Brooks* testimony to the con
trary and gave judgment for thes6oagainst
the other surety only.
East Part of the County Worried Over
the Smallpox
Dr. F. P. Cave, of El Monte, was before
the county board of supervisors yesterday
to ask that an order be issued making vac
cination compulsory. There are a number
of casts of smallpox in the eastern part of
the county, and as the disease originated
among the ignorant Mexicans of the vicin
ity, who will not take the- necessary pre
cautions to prevent its spread, the peopie
are much alarmed lest it should become
The supervisors did not know whether
they had sufficient power to order every
body in the vicinity to be vaccinated, so
took th- matter under consideration until
they find out what they can do. The coun
ty will probably have to pay the vaccina
tion fee for many of the poorer class.
Suit to Recover Property
A case removed from the Superior Court
was filed In the I'nlted Stales Circuit Court
yesterday. Kalherine G. Bieecker seeks to
recover from Kate A. E. Johnson, of Chi
cago, a certain lot of iand In the Park Villa
tract of Los Aug i-s, which th" claims waa
obtained by fraud. Harry L. Bieecker.
1-usbnnd of Ihe plaintiff, was arrested in
Chicago charged wi'.h embezzlement. The
Jefendant threatened that unless Mrs.
Bieecker executed a conveyance of the
property to her she would cause Bieecker
to b» pros* cuted on tho said charge, which,
jnder- the laws of Illinois. Is a felony, and If
Ihe conveyance was executed the charge^
would be withdrawn and the accused dis
charged from custody.
Mrs. Bleecker claims that her husband
was innocent of the charge, and she be
lieves It was made for the purpose of ob.
talning the property, and she brings suit
for Its recovery.
Was not Insane
Holger Peterson, the San Pedro lad who
has for several days been confined In the
county hospital awaiting examination for
insanity, was yesterday brought be-fore
the usual examining commission In the
presence of Judge Shaw. The testimony
and the boy's own story tended to show
that he was no more than feeble-minded,
and the physicians recommended that he
be sent to an asylum for that character of
unfortunates. As a new proceeding will
be necessary to secure such action from tne
court, Judge Shaw discharged him.
Josef a de Celis Estate
Another suit in foreclosure was yester
day filed in the Superior Court against the
de Celis estate, which seems to be laboring
under an excessive financial burden. M.
Q. Baker is the complainant this time, and
he seeks to recover on a note of $1,500.
which is secured by a mortgage on the
property at the northwest corner of Six
teenth and Los Angeles streets. The mort
gage is indorsed by H. A. Moore, and is
dated December, ISM.

H. D. Barrows Talks of the Early
Schools of the City
The regular monthly meeting of the
pioneers of Los Angeles county was held
last evening in Caledonia hall, with the
usual attendance. Four persons were ad
mitted to membership: Mrs. Kate Connor,
a native of Lombert Helm, Germany, ar
rived in Los Angeles June 21, 1871; John C.
Anderson. Ohio, May 24, 1873; Myron E.
Evarts, New York, 1858; Elijah Moulton,
.Montreal, Canada, May, 1845. Mr. MouKon
was the pioneer dairyman of the city and
carried the total supply of lacteal fluid
necessary to supply his customers around
the pueblo in a small buggy.
The program of the evening opened with
a violin and piano duet by Misses Ida and
Lottie Dottcr. Louis Roeder disclaimed his
ability to make a speech, but instead' told
a story of the old times with his charaicter
is'tlc humor. The moral of the story was
the Importance and, not Infrequently, the
policy, of cordial and hospitable treatment
of strangers visiting Los Angeles.
H. D. Barows followed in a short paper
on the early American schools of the city
Mr. Barows' own career as a teacher began
here, on his arrival ln 18.14, as tutor ln the
family of William Wolfskin, ln which Rev.
J. W. Douglas and Miss Goodnow had pre
ceded him. Don Ignbcio Coronel was at
that time teaching a Spanish school.
Among the memihers of the board cf edu
cation of that early time mentioned were
Judge Wm. G. Dryden, George J. Pluni
mer, W. H. Workman, William Prldham,
George H. Smith, Dr. Joseph Kurtz. A
number of interesting facts were given of
the early teachers of the city.
Miss Lottie Dottr-r closed the exercis'-s
with a piano solo. The m-etlng for Septem
ber 6 will be the annual, at which officers
will be elected for the succeeding year.
The constitution provides for the annual
meeting being held on September 4, that
being the date on which the pueblo of Los
Angeles was founded, but that day falling
on Sunday It will be held as usual on the
first Tuesday of the month.
Employes' Bonds No w Filed With the
The government has allowed an addi
tional permanent clerk for the Les Angeles
{lostofflc.e. Mr. Roe Is the man selected for
the place.
Employes' bonds heretofore given to post
masters will be sent now direct to the gov
ernment. Presumably this law has been
changed- to relieve postmasters of the re
sponsibility, though fortunately it has
worked- no hardship on those of Los Ange
les, as no employe has ever been one dol
lar short in his accounts, consequently
there has been no occasion to make good
any losses.
The time of tho mall service for Dale, the
new bonanza mining camp, has been
changed so that now mall leaves Dale on
Thursdays: mail from this city leaves
Palm Springs on Tuesdays at 1 oclock.
Travelers can now make the through trip
from this city on the same day.
Inspector Flint was over-run with visit
ors and plied with questions yesterday by
anxious politicians, to find out who rents

One Time That Ex-Soldier Tom Quinn
Sid Run
In future, when Deputy Constable Tom
Quinn has to move any wagons he will se
cure a horse to do the work. He tried to
act as his own beast of burden yesterday,
but It so nearly had serious results that he
took a solemn oath never to repeat the
rerformar.ee. He was sent to the residence
of Dr. C W. linger on-Second street near

Bunker Hill avenue to levy an attachment
on a horse, harness and spring wagon. The
female members of the house objected lo
such a summary proceeding, but Tom was
not to be deterred by such a little thing :ts
a woman's objection, so he visited the yard
to discover that only the wagon was there.
Hring of a cautious nature, he did not
take chances on going away to secure a
horse to haul rhe wagon, fearing that iL,
too, would disappear; so he determined to
take the wagon to the station himself. It
was hilly, he reasoned, and gravitation
would help him considerably. It did. He
got between the shafts and started down
the hill with the rig. He forgot to put or.
the. brake, however, and)within*a few yard?
the wagon was racing down the street at a
terrible rate, with Tom hanging on with
wild determination and trying to steer it
out of the course of other vehicles. He
managed to turn the runaway wagon Into
Hill street, but the jolt threw the top off.
He finally brought the wagon to a standstill
and after placing the coveron it hauled the
vehicle to the police station and turned it
over to the authorities.

v Second —That there is now on hand a larger stock than was ever before inventoried.
w Third— That the Pre-Inventory Sale disposed of nearly all broken assortments and remnant lines. tf
