ATTEMPTS TO KILL GIRL HE LOVED
USES I PISTOI
THREATENS THE ONE WHO
YOUNG WOMAN A HEROINE
William Narvaez Is Arrested After
Flourishing Weapon and Threat.
. enlng Sweetheart and Her
Maddened by , Jealousy and the
thought that the . woman who had
promised to be his bride had ceased to
love him, William Narvaez, a. jockey,
attempted to kill his sweetheart, Mis«
Louisa Mugneml, at her home, 828 East ,
Twelfth street, yesterday morning 'by
shooting her. Navaea was prevented
from carrying out his intentions only by
the timely interference of Miss Louretta
Brown of Magnolia , street Ffndlng
that, his plans were about to be frus
trated Narvaez turned on Miss Brown
and a struggle ensued.
Just |as Narvaea had overpowered
Miss : Brown, Mrs. Julia * Mugnemt,
Louisa's mother, came upon the scene.
Cries from the two terrified girls at
tracted other members of the house
Fight for Weapon ■ . • .
In an instant H. H. Smith and Narvaez
were : struggling desperately for posses
sion) of the weapon. Once when the
Jockey succeeded In pointing the pistol
: at , Miss Mugneml, witnesses say, lie
pulled the trigger but the discharge was
prevented by the finger of Smith, which
■was;crushed by the hammer .. of the
•weapon. One of the young women
called the police and . a few minutes
* later .', Patrolmen Roy Allen and Hub
bard arrested Narvaez.
Late yesterday afternoon Narvaez was
arraigned before Police Judge Cham
bers on the charge of flourishing a
deadly weapon. Judge Chambers fixed
'the ball at $200.
Courtship of Pair
j Nearly a year ago the jockey, who is
■well known as a rider on the western
coast/went to the Mugneml house, at
; that time 1111 San Pedro street, and
secured a room. . There he met Louisa
:': ' Mugneml and in a short time the two
apparently grew very fond of each
"other."* Though the parents objected to
the match the two were often together.
; 'A friend of Miss Mugnemi says the girl
promised to marry him twice before ho
left Ascot for. a northern track, t , ■• • -';. ;
; During his- absence from -the. city It
isi said that a handsome young United
Btates- army lieutenant took the place
of, Narvaez in the heart of the young
woman. V. Narvaez returned and pleaded
his suit in vain. Louisa's father be
coming alarmed sought the' police and
four months ago Officer Boyd arrested
Narvaez, but no case could be made cut
against the Jockey.
'.Monday Louisa received a letter from
Narvaez, : supposed to have been writ
ten at his home In San Jose, asking her
to go to the postofflce at It o'clock and
there she would find a registered letter
containing money. With this money
Louisa "was to go to a pawnshop and
buy back a ring and a watch Narvaea
Raid he had pawned. Louisa consulted
with' her friend, Miss Brown, and de
cided that it was only a ruse to get her
'to meet him. . . . . ,
the afternoon Mrs. Mugneml
discovered Narvaez about the house and
invited -him in. He demanded to see
Louisa. After he had attempted to per
suade;.'her to remain home with him
while the others of the household went
tola dance in the evening Mrs. Mugnemt
told him that he could see her daughter
no more. This angered the Jockey and
he is said to have threatened the family.
■About 10 o'clock yesterday morning
Narvaez ! appeared at j the house and
asked' for Louisa. She sent word that
she did not wish to see him. The in
stant , he received the message he was
filled '* with rage. With a wild laugh he
started for the bathroom, where Louisa
had hidden. As he neared the door he
drew his revolver and shouted that he
would "clean" the house. Miss Brown
.witnessed the affair and becoming
frightened ■ rushed after the man. To
talking- of the affair Miss . Mugneml
said that she owed ' her life to Miss
Brown. - . ,•

HANG FOR MURDER
JURY OMITS RECOMMENDATION
DELIBERATES 30 MINUTES
Sentence Is Deferred, but Under Law
the Only-Penalty for First De
gree Is Execution on '
. ■■'■.: . Gallows
After deliberating less than half an
hour yesterday afternoon . the Jury In
the case against Joseph Schnaldekl,
charged with the I murder of Mrs. C.
Salmon, returned a verdict of "guilty of
murder in , the first degree" and made
no recommendation for mercy for the
condemned man. ■ ■ »■
Sentence was deferred, but the verdict
under the law leaves but one fate for
the prisoner, that of death by hanging.
Schnaldekl was bordering on. hys
terics when the jury filed into the court
room. He looked from one juror to an
other, peering at the men from behind
his heavy rimmed glasses as though he
were trying to find some sign of sym
pathy -from them. . ■ •>, ... < ;
Nearly 300 persons were in the court
room and corridors awaiting the verdict
and most of them were either friends of
Mrs. Cecilia Salmon, the victim, or
neighbors who j had . given charity to
Schnaldekl when he arrived in Los An
geles several, years ago.
The day_ was taken up by the state
ments of the lawyers, and the attorney
for Schnaidekl made a brilliant address
In a last effort to secure a life sentence
for his client He was answered by
Deputy District Attorney Donnell. .';
MaJ. Donnell showed no mercy in his
arraignment of Schnaldekl and the de
fendant sat with bowed head, tears oc
casionally coming from his eyes and
shuddering while the attorney stood be
fore the jurymen calling upon them to
return the death sentence.
"I do not ask you to consider the de
pravity of this man," said Attorney
Donnell. "I do not ask you to consider
his low, contemptible character in try-
Ing to besmirch the name of his Htaln
less victim. 1 do not ask you to con
sider the- disgrace -brought ' upon the
poor children of that woman nor the
perjury of the defendant. All I ask In
that you consider the statement of that
murderer when he acknowledged on tht»
stand that he had stabbed his true
friend with his dago 'knife after she
had helped him.
"Hal"' not! insane nor has he shown
any reason why he should not suffer thin
extreme .penalty. 'If ever you had a fit
subject for hanging this Is the man. ;If
you" have_any sentiment about return
ing a", verdict of death simply, return a
verdict of murder in the Arst degree as
LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST s, 1905.
charged and this court will have no
other alternative than to pass the death
sentence." , ,,-... ■ ' • • ; -
. When the verdict was read Schnaldekl
bowed his head and a hoarse sob came
from him. He seemed dazed as he was
led to the cell and the bailiff was com
pelled to assist him to walk.', y, .■; -. •:
