The Company Will Probably Ask That
Judge Shaw Be Disqualified From
Sitting in the Case
It looks very much as though the counsel
ln the water case are vying with each other
to see which can file the most voluminous
document on the questions at issue. The pe
tltions in the two injunction suits tiled have
been of 70and 50 pasts of matter respective
ly, but the company yesterday knocked out
all records. Their answer to the city's
prayer for possession of the plant, a re
ceiver and an Injunction, was Hied ln the
afternoon, and consists of about 110 pages
of typewritten matter. It embodies all the
information, allegations and petitions cf
the original complaint tiled by the company
against the city, also that of the city
against the company, together with the ex
planation necessary to an understanding
of both and of the result hoped to be at
It is denied that the city has any right
to the Crystal Springs Land and Water
company's property and much other prop
erty which is alleged to belong to the Los
Angeles City Water company, and the
statement is made that the plant and prop
erty which really belong to the defendant
and come within the terms of the contract
are earning an income of no: more than
$8,000 per year, and is burdened with an in
debtedne.-s of $100,000 or more.
In their prayer the company again tsk
that the city be tnjoirutl from taking pos
session of the plant or from Interfering
with the collection of water rents, and that
the city's petition for the appointment of a
receiver for the plant and property be de
nied. The company's attorneys also filed
two affidavit a which suggest that they will
set up a claim that Judge Shaw is not qual
ified to hear the city's suit against the com
pany. One of these affidavits is Signed by
B. F. Lewis, of the city assessor's office,
and states that Judge Shaw is a taxpayer
on worth of property in this city, in
cluding two lots on Maple avenue, with im
provements, in all worth $6,240. and 1690
worth of personal property. The other
document is signed by Charles YV. Clark, a
collector for the water company, and se's
forth that Judge Shaw is a regular cus
tomer of the water company and in July
paid his rentals, but has not done so in
August because of the injunction which he
has himself granted restraining the com
pany from making such collections.
It is not known that Judge Shaw has any
intention of hearing the city's case, but if
he attempts to it is not unlikely the com
pany will introduce these affidavits in or
der to show his disqualification. 1-ioih in
junction suits come up today, anil one nf
them will probably be continued. The city's
answer to the complaint in the company's
suit has not yet been tiled.
Judge Shaw Makes a Personal Investi
gation of a Divorce Suit
The court yesterday Indulged in a little
investigation on its own "hook," and the
lather unusual proceeding resulted in an
entirely unexpected turn in the case under
Fred T. Altmeler, a young man now In
the employ of a large grocery firm in Los
Angeles, was a petitioner before Judge
Shaw for a divorce from his wife, Mary J.
Altmeler, who now resides at the corner of
Second and Main streets. The couple were
married at Pueblo. Col., In 1880; but, on ac
count of the husband's health, moved to
Little Rock, Cal.. in 1*94. where they en
gaged in the hotel business. Then the
trouble began. The husband alleges that
the wife was cross, Irritable and at times
violent. She would keep him awake ail
or the greater part of the night, often car
rying on an altercation at the top of her
voice and occasionally indulging ln screams
which would not only disturb the guests In
the hotel, but often aroused the neighbors
in distant parts of the settlement. She
threatened to leave him, and once started
to walk across the desert to Palmdale. nine
miles away, but was finally persuaded to
return, and subsequently took a dose of
poison as another method for ending her
miserable existence.
Heroic methods saved her life, and th»n
she sought relief in attempts to Injure the
husband, employing the broomstick and a
rifle as the mediums, but being foiled in this
contented herself with accusing the young
man of committing adultery with her sis
ter, the charge being made in the presence
of other people. All this was alleged in the
plaintiff's complaint, and was substan
tiated by a guest of the hostelry under his
management, and his mother, Mrs. Hus
The court interposed a question now and
then, and did not seem entirely satisfied
with the testimony. Finally a witness re
marked that the husband had on one occa
sion accused his wife of being too free with
one of the guests, and this seemed to define
the proper course of action to the judge.
"Can you produce the defendant in
court?" he asked of counsel.
"I think so, your honor," was the an
"Then let her be subpoenaed at once,"
came the order.
Mrs. Altmeler, a tall, pleasant-looking
young lady, did not arrive until the middle
of the afternoon, ond was Immediately
sworn. Her testimony proved to he a com
plete denial of every allegation contained
in the plaintiffs complaint, except as to the
preliminary information stating the time
of marriage, etc. She stated that the trou
ble between her and the husband was mere
ly a misunderstanding and an inability to
agree. The rilie episode she alleged was
not true, inasmuch as she had intended to
use the weapon (in a certain woman who
frequently came to their house and threat
ened to take her husband away from her.
Mrs. Altmeler stated that she had filed no
answer to her husband's divorce petition
merely because she no longer loved or cared
for him. and it did not matter to h> r wheth
er he got a divorce on false grounds or how
he got it.
The court felt that his Investigation had
not- bei n for nntight. and ruled that a. di
vorce could not be granted .under the facts
as they appeared to be. The case may be
Judge Shaw Finds a Good Man From
The Calabasas district has a well estab
lished reputation as the breeding ground
for crime. The courts have come to rec
ignize this fact and have no hesitancy in
frequently giving the neighborhood a "hot
shot" in the form of comment which in
earlably is open to interpretation us a
statement that "there is not a really re
spectable man ln the district."
It is therefore no wonder that Judge-
Shaw was much surprised at an occur
rence which took place in his court yester
day. A man was before him with an appli
cation for naturalization and was accom
panied hy the usual witness. The judge ex
amined this witness about as follows:
"How long have you known this appli
cant, sir?"
"About six years, your honor."
"What can you say for him as to his re
spectability and general character?"
"He is a good man. your honor, and has
always been a good man since lirst I knew
"Where does he live?"
"In Calahasas, sir."
The court turned to his clerk post haste.
"Here, Mr. Clerk, here is a good man from
Calabasas; swear him in, quick."
The new citizen of the United States will
undoubtedly be held up to brother towns
men as a shining example.
Petitions From Attorneys Who Have
the County's Welfare at Heart
Rogers. Peterson & Slnckand Derbin &
Derbin are San Francisco attorneys who
seem to have dug around ln the musty and
dusty records of the past and discovered
that Los Angeles county is being deprived
of certain moneys which the state should
long ago have paid over to the supervisors.
With a sincere interest in the county's wel
fare they have therefore notified the super
visors cf their discovery and offer their
services to assist the district attorney in
recovering the amounts. Of course, they
want 50 per cent of all that is recovered,
but no one minds a little thing like that.
The matter was taken under consideration,
Douglas. Pyburn & Co. are other ener
getic members of the legal fraternity. They
offer their services to the county for 2,*> per
cent of all moneys recovered from the state
as consideration for the support of indi
gents. The law of 1880-83 is quoted. This
matter was also taken under consideration.
J. W. Ferree was appointed bee inspector
In place of Elon Hart, who resigned, and
H. D. Robertson's resignation as Lancaster
pound Inspector was lilled by the appoint
ment of C. W. Hutch.
The bids of Laventhal & Sons nn whiskies
for use at the county hospital and that of
Steams & Sons on wines were accepted.
J. A. Sevey was refused a license for con
ducting a restaurant at Gard c na and E. B.
Karnsworth was refused a license to con
duct the saloon known as the "Red House."
Jean Monquier's petition for a San Gabriel
saloon license was tiled.
Sixty days' further time was granted tht
contractors on the courthouse elevator.
Gambled It Away Then Left Her to
Her Own Resources
According to the story of Mrs. Lena
Downs, told on the witness stand in JuHge
Shaw's court yesterday, she is the victim
of an arch conspirator who loved and mar
ried for a mercenary purpose, and having
exhausted the possibilities in the desired
direction left for greener tields and pas
tures new.
Lena Harrison and James R. Downs
were married only two short years ago.
according to plaintiff's allegation, after a
courtship extending over a comparatively
short period, during which, however, the
inexperienced maiden was induced to be
lieve that her suitor was a man of inex
haustible means and with such rare capa
bilities as an accountant that scores of
lucrative positions were constantly seek
ing his services. That such was by no
means the case the young wife learned
soon after their marriage, but the real con
ditions were not fully realized before the
husband had sold his eonllding spouse's
piano, watch and every other valuable on
which he could lay hands.
The adventurer then had no further use
for a family and refuted to contribute to
its support. The dosing 1 episode in thf
romance took place yesterday in the su
perior court, when the wife was granted a
divorce on the ground of non-support.
But the Court Did Not See Necessity
for Any
Attorney Whitney was the first man to
jump into action in Judge Shaw's court
yesterday. He apparently did so with n
previous determination to get to the bot
tom of the court's reasons for so uncere
moniously knocking out his proceeding
against Gregory Perkins, jr., and Attorney
Dunning for contempt. The court had
merely found them not guilty and ordered
their discharge, and the order was duly
enured in the clerk's journal. Whitney
stated to the court yesterday that he un
derstood the matter had been decided, but
could tind no opinion given in the record.
"You will find all the opinion there that is
necessary*" said the judge.
"Well, will not the court give an opinion
In the case?" asked Whitney, persistently.
"All I have to say is that the parties had
a perfect right to bring another suit after
being defeated In one. The ground of
your proceeding might be a matter plead
ing in bar, but there was no contempt,''
The court dismissed the question with
this explanation and took up other business
while Mr. Whitney walked disconsolately
out of the court room.
Another of the Atlanta Chinese Theat
rical Troupe
Que Moy. another of the poor little Chinese
women who came to this country with the
theatrical troop to the Atlanta exposition,
was ord'eretl deported by Commissioner
Van Dyke. Que had been "married" to a
highbinder and there was much less inter
est manifested In her case hy the popula
tion of Chinatown than is usual on trials
for violation of the exclusion act, espe
cially of women. She heard the order that
remanded her to her native country with
the same immovable countenance and
stolid air that never under any stress of
circumstances deserts the women of her
race. There is not much happiness in store
for Que Moy and such as she, for it is slav
ery if she goes and slavery if she stays and
degradation a thousands-fold worse.
Rebman Put a Deep Hole in the Earth
According to Contract
John Rebman has brought suit In the
superior court against the East Whittler
Land and Water company to enforce the
payment of-money due for we ll drilling.
The"plaintiff alleges that in April he en
tered into a contract with the defendant to
drill a well on certain lands in township 2.
By the terms of the contract the company
was to pay him $3 per foot for the firs* 1000
feet, $3.25 per foot for the next 100 feet and
$3.50 fo.r each foot beyond 1100 feet. The
plaintiff alleges that when a depth of 1144
feet was reached the parties mutually
agreed that work be discontinued, but the
company has paid only $1100 on the con
Plaintiff therefore sues for $2379 balance
But One Footed the Bills, According to
Plaintiff's Complains
Peter Kehl has brought suit against E
Somers to recover $624 due him under an
agreement to which the two were parties.
The plaintiff alleges that he and the de
fendant are stockholders In the Electric
Power company, and that he has spent
$:;169.7S in purchasing property and im
provements for the organization, the other
members of which agreed to pay him their
portions of the amount as soon as theysold
their stock holdings. He claims that the
defendant has sold a portion of his stock,
hut refuses to pay anything toward the ac
count as agreed, hence the suit.
Stopped the Sale
Attorney Appel asked Judge Shaw for a
stay of execution yesterday ln order to
prevent the sale of 1723 acres of land which
was a part of the I.eonis estate. The court
had ordered the sheriff to sell It to satisfy
the Judgment awarded to Elizabeth Mur
ray some time ago in her suit against Etch
epare. Mrs. Leonis' agent, ln whose name
the property now stands. A suit is pend
ing, however, by which Mrs. I.eonis seeks
to recover the land from Btchepare, and
the Murray judgment may eventually be
paid by Mrs. I.eonis.

man who was also arrested for connection
with the crime.
Dismissed the Case
Deputy District Attorney James yester
day dismissed the case of the people against
Angel Mason before Justice Wilson at San
(Jahriei. Mason was charged with assault
ing Pablo Rocha with a deadly weapon, but
is It was found that the defendant only
fired a shot which accidentally hit the com
plaining witness and that the affair was
the outcome of a quarrel in which Mason
was assaulted with a knife in the hands of
Rocha's father, the matter was dropped.
