A LIVELY GRANDMA
OB WAS NOT TOO OLD TO WORK
A CONFIDENCE GAME
CHARGED WITH ABDUCTION
As Interesting Tale of a Fight for the
Possession of Little Vera Nelson.
General Court Newa
A complaint was Issued by the district
attorney yesterday afternoon charging Mrs.
Jennie McNeil, a woman 50 years of age,
with the abduction of her grandchild. Vera
Nelson, 7 or 8 years old. Investigation de
veloped a most interesting and protracted
tight for the possession of the child.
Some two or three years ago James Nel
son and wife were divorced ln Salt Lake
City, Utah, the mother, by the decree of
the court, being granted custody of their
J-year-old daughter, Vera, to whose sup
port Nelson was ordered to contribute a
certain sum each month. The father was
very anxious for possession ot the child,
and probably with a view to securing an
assistant ln preventing him from so do
ing, Mrs. Nelson found a second husband
and protector ln the person of A. H. Mike
sell. A position as the child's defender
proved no Idle responsibility, it seems, for
husband No. 2 has been kept in hot water
ever since by Nelson's attempts to obtain
the little one. The first occasion on which
Nelson got hold of Vera was in a mining
camp ln Utah. Mlkesell finally got her
back, but ln the operation carried away a
dose of cold lead as the price of his bravery.
Mlkesell and his wife subsequently moved
to this city, and engaged in the grocery
business at 312 West Sixth street. Nelson
moved to Wyoming. This distance of sep
aration has not tended to cool the ardor of
the father's desire for his daughter, how
ever, and according to Mikesell's story the
attempts at actual kidnaping have been
frequent and daring. For some reason
unknown, Mrs. Mikesell's mother, Jennie
McNeil, an aged but lively grandmother,
has taken her first son-in-law's part ln the
contention, and has been the active factor
in the recent attempts to get the little
girl for Nelson, in February last she ob
tained possession of Vera and before Inter
vention could be made effective landed her
In Rowland, Ore., where the father them
resided. A trip by the mother was neces
sary to get her back, and operations were
then suspended until about two months
ago, when grandma again turned up ln Los
Angeles. She appealed to Mlkesell on the
ground that Nelson had promised to fur
nish her a home if the little girl were per
mitted to live with her, and as a matter
of compromise Mlkesell finally agreed to
furnish her a place to live In this city, and
this offer, he states, was accepted. Mrs.
McNeil wasiapparently contented and noth
ing suspicious occurred until Tuesday
night.
Mrs. Mlkesell was quite 111 and they were
preparing to move over on Maple avenue,
having sold their Sixth street grocery. The
grandmother suddenly appeared on the
scene and asked that the little girl be per
mitted to spend the night at her house.
The mother objected at first, but on the
promise that Vera would be returned in
the morning consented. Morning came and
no Vera. Suspicion was aroused and about
noon Mlkesell went to Mrs. McNeil's lodg
ings, where he was confronted by a card on
the door bearing the Information that the
grandmother had gone to Santa Monica
with the little one and would be back in two
or three days. This tale was not credited
and the step-father began a search for In
formation.
It was not long before he discovered that
Nelson had telegraphed transportation to
Mrs. McNeil and the child, and subsequent
Investigations showed that they left on
the 11:55 train for Sacramento. Mlkesell
thereupon appealed to the district attor
ney, and by 4 o'clock a telegram describing
the woman ana Vera was ln the hands of
the police at Bakersfleld. It Is probable
they will be brought back to Los Angeles
today, when the grandmother will be con
fronted with the charge of abduction.
The outcome of the affair will be watched
with Interest.
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Matter of Claims Against the State
Still Undecided
The San Francisco barristers who have
been so solicitous for the welfare of Lus
Angeles county that they offer to collect
certain claims which they have found the
state owes the county for the small con
sideration of 50 per cent were yesterday
given a hearing In the matter before the
board of supervisors. None of the several
attorneys who are after a contract were
present, but all were represented by local
members of the bar, and before the meet
ing ended all had come down to the com
mon proposition that one of the firms will
make the fight for 25 per cent of the
amount recovered whatever, It may be.
The board did not feel Justified in entering
into a contract Just yet, but will give the
matter further consideration.
The supervisors have been gtvlng the
building of a new Jail some little consid
eration lately and It is not Improbable that
before long steps will be taken looking to
the erection of a modern and substantial
structure. The plan most favored at pres
ent is to locate this new building on the
lot' now owned by the county across the
street north of the courthouse and to have
it Include a residence for the sheriff as
well as the jail. Blunge baths and a fumi
gating system will be Included ln the plan
la order to have the place what It Is by
no moans at present—a sanitary prison.
The old Jail will then be reconstructed as
a county recorder's office, that officer's
present quarters being altogether too limit
ed and divided.
Bids for the county printing contract will
be advertised for during the next ten day*,
and will be opened on September 10. The
(clerk was also authorized to advertise for
bids for the tiling of the new tunnel run
ning from New High street to the elevator
tower. James) W. Hellman has been award
ed the contract for furnishing such extra
election booths as may be needed.
An application from a number of county
property holders that they be included In
the Chatsworth pound district was
granted.
The .petition of Perry & Harding fon a
license to conduct al saloon at the Five Mile
house on El Monte road was granted; that
of Jean Nouguier for a license to conduct
a saloon at Los Nietos was a subject of
protest, the hearing of which was set for
September 21.

Caae Against Marcher and Jackson
Vow in the Superior Court
Deputy District Attorney James will to
day file tbe Information ln the case of the
people against Frank A. Marcher and J.
W. Jackson, ln which the defendants are
charged wtth obtaining money by false pre
tenses.
The complaint sets forth that the de
fendants on January 19,1898, being desirous
of obtaining a pretended loan of 81109 from
one Henry J. Loomls, and with Intent to
cheat and defraud him, falsely represented
that they were the owners of a certain
stock of Jewelry worth 83300. To Impress
the value ot the stock upon Loom!*, the de
fendants are alleged to have represented
that the Jewelry would if melted still be
worth about 81100 ln gold and was a good
and sufficient security for the loan they
sought. It Is further alleged that the jew
elry ln question, consisting of % number ot
watches, lockets, pins and finger rings,
had no gold whatever ln them except a
thin washing on the surface, and were net
of a value exceeding 318!).
Marcher and) Jackson got the money,
were subsequently arrested, tried before a
justice's court and held for trial In the su
perior court ln the sum of $1200 each. They
will be tried ln September.
HE WANTED TO MARRY
But the Oirl's Mother Alleged Just
Cause for Interfering
Deputy County Clerk Kuts received a
communication from Mrs. Nellie Harwood
the other day ln which the writer Btated
that she objected to.the projected marriage
of her daughter, Alice Crable, to Edward
W. Land of Blsbee, Arisona. She further
stated that her consent had once been
given, but since then Just cause for with
drawing it bad developed and she there
fore desired that no license be Issued.
The would-be groom soon after appeared
and asked for the license, but "Cupid" Kutz
Informed him of the instructions received
by the matrimonial department and re
fused the document prayed for.
"Well, but you see I have the mother's
written consent all right," insisted Laud
•with considerable self-assurance, as he
flashed the Instrument.
"Yes, sir," replied Kuts, "but If you will
look at the date you will see it was written
ln June, and my instruction is dated Aug
ust 15th."
The young man looked at the later docu
ment for a moment and then a bright idea
selxedt him.
"That letter has no bearing in the matter.
The code makes no provision for ihe recis
sion of a consent, once It Is given. I have
the consent and want my license." It was
a strong bluff but it didn't work.
"I don't know what the code says." re
plied Kuts, "but I do know what common
sense teaches, and you'll not get the li
cense."
The young man walked sadly away, prob
ably contemplating what a fickle world it is.
TWO DIVOBCES GRANTED
Judge Shaw Disposes of His Quota in
Short Order
Yesterday's divorce cases were short and
to the point. The first was that of Robert
B. Urmston against Ella Urmston and the
decree was granted on the ground of aban
donment and adultery. The parties were
married in May, 1894, and took up their
residence ln Los Angeles. According to
plaintiff's story, the wife soon grew rest
less and left him for a-period, what she did
during that time never being fully or sat
isfactorily explained. The husband look
her back to his hearth and home, neverthe
less, and matters went comparatively
smooth until March of the current year
when she again forsook the plaintiff and
has since been living in Needles, where, the
husband alleges, her deportment has been
that of a woman of the town. The court
granted him a divorce and possession of
all property.
Margaret Harrlgan was the other peti
tioner for a legal separation. She married
her husband in Pittsburg, Pa., in 1873, and
they have resided ln California for twenty
years or more. The ground of the action
was abandonment and the court granted
a decree together with custody of the two
children and 810 per month for their sup
port.
The case of Louise R. Medler against
Frank Medler for a divorce and alimony
will probably be before the court within a
few days.

Want Another Trustee

Scott borrowed 83682 from the California
bank giving as security therefor a trust
deed to certain lots ln Pasadena and certain
stock, the same to be held ln trust by J. M.
Wltmer and S. J. Lewis and should Scott

It is a typical representation of the primi
tive homes of this section of country. It is
made of Nebraska sod, cut into blocks, and
is plastered insldie. As the weather has
been alternately moist and dry this sum
mer, conducive to the most luxuriant
growth In all kinds of vegetation, the sod
house has put forth a crop of grass on the
outer walls of such thickness and color that
it stands as a living, growing advertise
ment of the pasture lands of the middle
west. No amount of literature or explana
tion could have spoken so well for the
prairie lands as does this "sod house." No
exhibit receives more attention, foil It) is
enjoyed by the two distinct classes of sight
seers that constitute the entire moving
crowd, viz: people who have never seen sod
houses and those who have lived in them.To
the former it is picturesque and amusing,
and many are the pleasing remarks one
hears from them. To the latter it brings
memories of by-gone days and struggles,
and one hears remarks of ambitious be
ginning days and the trials and pleasures
of prairie life.
When one has satisfied his curiosity with
this unique exhibit, he can walk out into
the backyard and get a delicious country
supper of stewed chicken, cream gravy,
apple pie and milk, and as this self same
back yard Is the spacious, open, beautiful
exposlton grounds and thts twilight, out
of-door supper Is accompanied by sweet
strains of band music, perhaps some of us
will carry away with us more pleasing
ideas of "sod house" life than those people
who have spent summers In them outside
of an exposition, ground.
