S. C. Spencer to Be Tried as an Accom
plice on Thursday—High Tributes
to Judge W. A. Ryan
There was no need of a second ballot to
decide the fate of A. R Campbell, on trial
in Department one yesterday on a obargo
of grand larceny. The case was turned
over to the Jury at and five mlrtutrs
later it returned a verdict of guilty. Cnmp
bell, it will be remembered. was> accused
with one D. C. Spencer with hnvlnjr bun
coed Fred Seagrave of SS4 South Hope street
out of $500 by representing themselves as
memhers of the Patton-DaVies Lumber
company. Campbell trot Seagrave to give
him $500 on the representation that he
would give him the position as collector for
the lumber company and wanted the $500
as security.
The prosecution yesterdny placed several
witnesses on the stand, who testified to
having seen the defendant and Sens-rave
In conversation on the day of the steal.
One witness testified to having heard Camp
bell refer to Spencer as Ross, one of the
company's collectors.
To all this evidence the defendant's at
torneys made no direct reply, but attempt
ed to secure Campbell's release on !ok-»1
technicalities. Early ln the day they asked
for a dismissal on the ground that the evi
dence offered did not go to show that
Campbell had committed larceny nnd that
If he committed any crime It was thnt of
obtaining money under false pretenses.
Attorney Shlnn. one of the attorneys for
the convicted man. argued that the money
was loaned Campbell by S-eagraveand that
the present action was only an excuse to
try to get it hack. This statement brought
a smile to the face of every one familiar
with the evidence. Even the judge's usual
severe meln while on the bench lost for a
moment its customary expression. When
the attorney had finished his needless ex
ertion Judge Smith denied the motion nnd
ordered the case to proceed.
It did proceed, but in a manner extreme
ly unusual. The prosecution's case was
all ln and It was In order for the defense
to call its witnesses. Whether from an
oversight, or because lt had none to put on.
the defense opened with an argument hy
Mr. Shlnn. In which he attempted to ex
plain to the jury that things were not as
black as they looked. It was an up-hill
task, and he soon tired nnd sat down.
For one solid hour Deputy District At
torney McComas reviewed tbe swindle
pointing out each step as given by Mr
Spencer ln his testimony. The members
of the Jury looked bored, and even the pris
oner himself was seen to nod as If s othed
to forgetfulness. Arguments were tin

Judge Boss' Decision in the Circiut
Court Reversed
The San Diego water case .that has been
In the courts since 1894, was taken to the
San Francisco court of appeals recently, on
appeal from a decision given by Judge
RpSS in tho United £ rites circuit court.
This week the decision was given ln the
cast?, reversing that of Judge Ross. The
court held that notwithstanding the fact
the constitution declares that the use of the
waters of tho state appropriated for Irri
gation purposes is a public use, and upon
the petition of twenty-five consumers tht
commissioners of the cunty may nx the
i ite* to be or.n'ged by the '.ompanj and
paid by the consumer, nevertheless until
such rates are Axed in pursuance of law
the corporation furnishing the water and
the consumer receiving it nre left free to
make such contracts as they may see lit
to make, and their agreements will be sus
tained by the courts.
"In other words, there ls no provision of
the liw of the state and no principle of
public policy which inhibits such con
tracts. Corporations engaged in the bust*
ness of furnishing water for irrigation, un
der the laws of California, whether they
Require the water by appropriation of the
waters of the state or otherwise are pri
vate corporations. They are now here de
clared to be public corporations or quasi
public. They conduct their business for
private gain, for reasons affecting the pub
lic welfare they are given the right of em
inent domain, and in order that the use
of the water may be fairly and equably
adjusted to consumers and their rights r*ro
leeted under the constitution, it Is provided
in a certain contingency the rate to be
paid by the consumer may be fixed in a
manner prescribed by the law. The use is
public only to the extent that the corpora
tion may be compelled to furnish the water,
provided it has the capacity to do so, to all
who receive and pay for the same, and thnt
the rate of compensation shall be fixed by
the law incase the parties cannot agree."
To the Late Judge W. A. Ryan by
Local Attorneys
A goodly number of the memhers of the
Los Angeles bar met ln Department four
yesterday for the purpose of passing ap
propriate resolutions on the death of their
friend and associate, Judge W. A. Ryan,
After the selection of Judge Van Dyke,
as chairman and M. J. McParry as secre
tary of the mooning, Judge Van Dyke ex
plained the nature and purpose of tlu
gejthering, saying that it was to pay tribute
to one of the members of tihe local bar who
had been called to the higher court, where
n higher law applied. He asked for sug
gestions as to the most suitable manner of
expressing the respect the local bar felt
to its prominent deceased brother.
R. J. Adeock, an old business associate
of the deceased, said he had known Judge
Ryan since boyhood, and had always found
him upright, honest and always a gentle
man. Hefore taking up the study of law
the deceased was a mechanic, but was later
elected city clerk of Galesburg, a position
he held for twelve years. While holding this
position he took up the study of law, and
in wns admitted to the bar, second in a
class of 70.
Prank Finlayson said he felt called upon
to say n few words because o-f the high
opinion he held of t.he. deceased, who had
been taken away at the time most men
were commencing to make a success of
their lives and work. "You always knew
where to find W. A. Ryan," said he. "He
was a man painstaking in everything that
he undertook, and when he was asked for
his views on any subject, you knew that
he always had an opinion and would always
express It.
Upon motion of Mr. Dillon, the chair ap
pointed the following committee to frame
suitable resolutions: Stephen M. White.
L. H. Valentine. A. E. Meserve, Frank
Finlayson, C. A. Miller, R. J. Adeock and
H. O. Dillon. The meeting then adjourned
until Monday afternoon.

Plenty of Refrigerator cars—The New
Minimum to Be Dropped—Notes
and Personals
The result of the meeting of the refriger
ator ear agents, held on Wednesday last at
the office- of General Freight Agent Cham
bers of the Santa Fe. has resulted' In an
agreement to furnish !O»X> of such cars for
the orange traffic beginning early next
month, that is about two thousand cars for
each road, the Southern Pacific and the
Santa Fe. This, of course, ls besides the
cars the lines have themselves and those
which drift to them from other lines with
west-bound freight occasionally. There ls
every reason, therefore, to believe that
there will be plenty of transportation facil
ities this season.
Both Mr. Chambers of the Santa Fe nr.d
Mr. Luce of the Southern Pacific say there
have been no developments about the ques
tion of a new minimum for orange ear lot
shipments this year. Tt is evident from
what is said and the attitude of the rail
way people, that they do noL think the
matter will be pushed to nn affirmative
settlement, as the agitation in the press
and the decided opposition of the growers
and shippers has caused a lukewarmness
about the matter in official circles. There
is. however, one thing that Is settled be
yond any doubt, and that ls that there will
be no reduction of orange rates this or
any other season If the railways can pre
vent. The general offices take the
ground that the present rate was put into
force at a time when lt did not pay the
roads, as a means to develop the growing
of oranges. This has been done, they
claim, nnd now that they have worked up
the business hy means of a row rate un
til it has reached large proportions, they
think they should get the heneflt. The
shippers do not take this view and will
probably keep up the agitation for a lower
Two New Lines
H. E. Huntington, with his friends Mr.
Borel and Mr. De Guigne, left for the north
yesterday afternoon, after having made a
thorough inspection of their property, the
Los Angeles street railways, and decided on
at least two extension*. w"hich will be
commenced at once. The first of these will
he a line to Brooklyn Heights. This will
follow largely the same route as the old
Boyle Heights road via Allso street to th°
river, the route on the east side of the river
depending somewhat on the result of the
surveys now being made by the company's
corps of surveyors. The lino will be of
the very best quality, equal to any In the
city, and ns soon as the route to be fol
lowed Is determined absolutely, the con
struction gang will be put to work. This
will provide transit facilities to a large
section of the city heretofore unprovided
Probably today work will commence on
the extension of the Ninth street line and
the reconstruction of the track of that
branch. The company has o franchise
for a line from Main and Ninth east to Mn
teo street, and this will he at once built
though lt may not be completed to the
proposed terminus at once. At any rate
It was asserted by General Manager Wood
yesterday that it would be built above, so
as to form a considerable addition to the
Mr. Wood was asked If there had been
any developments as to the talked of pur
chase by the Huntington syndicate of the
Santa Monica and Pasadena trolley lines
which had been denied by General Sherman
and Mr. Clark. He declined to speak a;
all for the company, but said that ln his
opinion Huntington had acquired all th'
work he wanted now ln the purchase of the
city lines, it being evident from what he
sald that he does not believe that there Is
anything to the story.
lt was learned, however, that Hunting
ton has purchased Abbot Kinney's Mateo
street line, though at what figure could not
he exactly ascertained, hut as Mr. Kinney
Is said to be perfectly satisfied with the
bargain. It is BUpposable that both prin
cipals are happy. The Pne begins at the
Santa Fe station and runs south on Santa
Fe avenue on private holdings and on Ma
teo street to Ninth, thence east to Santa
Fe avenue to the city limits.
The syndicate also purchased yesterday
the franchise held hy J. C. Kays and asso
ciates, the route of which ls from the corner
of La Grande and Mateo streets south to
Ninth street, thence tn Santa Fe avenue
thence westerly on Ninth to Spring, thence
north on Spring to Seventh.
Wreck on the Southern Pacific
On Tuesday last the west-bound Southern
Pacific express train was wrecked at Red
Rock station on the line thirty-four miles
west of Tucson. It was one of those
lucky accidents which happen without any
very disastrous results, though no one can
tell how lt escaped being a tragedy except
by pure chance. It was all caused in the
first [dace by n blunder, for a freight train
had gone on the siding for the purpose of
letting the passenger train pass, hut the
switch was stupidly set so as to throw the
express train from the main line onto the
very switch where the freight train was
waiting. The engineer had no time to
think or to act before the smash came.
It resulted ln the complete destruction of
the two engines and two freight cars as
well as a mall coach. One engineer, he of
the passenger train, was hurt, as well as
his fireman, and the mall agent had sever
al bad bruises to show as a souvenir.
