NEWS OF THE COURTS JUDGE HALTS STRUGGLE TO SECURE STOCK BOOK Attorneys in Southern Commer cial Case Row in the Court Room Two attorneys had such a lively tussle over a book of stock certificates yesterday In Judge McCormick's de partment of the superior court, in the course of the hearing of the case of Simsje Vujacich against the Southern Commercial company, that the jurist •was forced to call them to order. Before that point was reached, how ever they were near a physical com bat, ' having torn several pages from the book of certificates in their efforts to possess It. Vujacich is only one of a score or more of Slavonians who deposited their earnings with the defendant. Now they say there is about $7f>oo coming to them, but that they cannot get it and fear that it has been used to build a distillery in Kentucky. In the midst of the case yesterday K. C. Powers, attorney for the Southern Commercial company, noticed that A. M Strong, attorney for the Slavonians, had in his possession a stock ecrtihcate book of the concern Powers was repre senting. He seized the book. Strong demanded that it be returned to him—instanter! Still Powers clung to It. Judge McCormick ordered Powers to return It. Still he kept it. Strong grabbed at one edge of tne book and obtained a hold. v Powers jerked and yanked. Strong pulled and struggled. Five pages were torn out before Judge McCormick rose on his dignity and ordered the attorneys to cease their contest in such positive terms that they did«o, and at a further com mand Powers'returned the book to Strong. The latter had obtained the book in a manner which he did not explain, but It was to have been introduced as evidence In case C. C. Grove, a witness, had been able to identify the signature of Lewis Farmer, an officer of the Southern Commercial company, which he was unable to do. The case has been before Judge Mc- Cormick three days, and because of the ignorance of the Slavonians of Eng lish it has made little progress. It ■was continued yesterday, to be re sumed August 23. MUST PAY IN CASH, NOT IN IBEX MINING STOCK T. M. McKinney Is Awarded Judg- ment for $192 That a dollar in money Is worth more than Hlock in the Old Ibex mine, the par value of which is $1, was the gist of the decision of Judge Hervey of the su perior court yesterday when he de clared that Calvin Ferguson must pay his employe, T. M. McKinney, $192.75 In cash and not In shares. McKinney claimed that he went to work for Ferguson at the Old Ibex mine, which is about four miles from San Bernardino. He was to receive $2 a day for his labor, and he worked 177 days, believing that he would be paid In cash and thinking that the small Bums he drew were merely on account. Finally he learned that the greater part of his wages was to be paid him In stock in the company, which la capl ltalized at $1,000,000, the value of the stock being placed at $1 a share, two of which were to be his daily. McKinney rebelled and finally went to court, where he acknowledged that email sums had been paid to him in real money and where Judge Hervey decided that he has coming to him $192.75 In cash.

Carter, ASKS $15,000 DAMAGES FOR INJURED REPUTATION Mrs. Wentworth Says Mrs. Vann Called Her a 'Dirty Chicken Thief If the judge thinks as do the plain tiffs, in a slander complaint which was filed yesterday in the superior court, regarding the value at words, the John Kendrick Bangses and the Qeorge Ban McCutcheons of the country will have to evolve a new literary scale of prices. Very angry at being called a chicken thief, as she alleges she has been, Mrs. Annie M. Wentworth. with her hus band, E. O. Wentworth, who conduct a grocery stere at Latin, on the Long Beach line of the Pacific Electric rail way, are suing Mrs. M. Vann of the same place for fIF.OOO damages on the slander complaint, and $100 for attor ney's fees. The Wentworths make three charges, all of which begin with the assertion that before May 4 of this year Mrs. Wentworth bore a good leputation, but that since she has been accused of stealing- chickens it has suffered great ly, so greatly that only $15,000 will ease the pain. The first charge is that Mrs. Vann uttered these words: "Tell Mrs. Wentworth that this is only two out of the dozens of hens she has stolen from me." The Wentworths think those words are worth $5000, and have sued accord ingly. The second charge follows, the words being an alleged quotation from Mrs. Vann: "You are a dirty chicken thief. And there are other things you have stolen besides. The whole neighborhood can prove you are nothing but a dirty chicken thief." For those words $5000 more. Charge No. 3 is,contained in the fol lowing sentence alleged to have been spoken by Mrs. Vann: "You've stolen dozens of hens, dozens of them, when you had to go to your knees in water to get them." Another charge of $5000. Each accusation is alleged to have been spoken by Mrs. Vann in the pres ence of divers persons, including Mrs. Helen Wentworth and Mrs. Mary A. Madden.

PERMITS MORTGAGE Judge Bordwell yeterday granted the Lark Ellen Home for News and Work ins; ISoys permission to mortgage its property. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 13, 1910. ALL DAY AND NIGHT BANK STOCK CASE POSTPONED Judge Bordwell Sets Hearing for September 8 The action of Hugh Blue, trustee of 1155 shares of stock of the All Day and Night bank, to obtain possession of the stock which is now in tne pos session of the county clerk, was con tinued until September 8 by Judge Uordwell of the superior court yester day. Following the order of Judge Con rey for the transfer of the siock to Blue's credit on the books of tile bank, Newton J. Skinner, president, and W. J. Conner, secretary, became guilty of contempt of court by not obeying and the supreme court cited them to appear before it in San Francisco September 5 to explain. Before that, however they had placed the disputed 1168 shares, pledged to se cure a loan of $94,000 and purchased in Blue's name when fhe loans were not repaid, in the custody of the county clerk. Judge Bordwell's order yesterday in continuing the action was because of the citation of the .supreme court. COURT HOLDS SPELLACY FIGURES ARE CORRECT Wealthy Oil Operator's Conten tions in Suit Filed by C. S. Young Are Sustained Although the issues in the case have not been finally determined. Judge Monroe of the superior court made it clear yesterday in the case in which C. S. Young is suing Timothy Spelleujy, wealthy oil operator and prominent Democrat, that in no event will he allow Young more than is due him on claims admitted by Spellacy. Thus Spellacy virtually wins the suit, as Young, dissatisfied with what was con ceded him by Spellacy, sued to get more. The case will be resumed Au gust 24, when both sides will render accountings of moneys expended. Oral arguments will follow. Judge Monroe declared that Young is entitled to the proceeds of the invest ment of $8144.99 in 1901 in deals which resulted in the formation of the Mascot Oil company and the Illinois Crude Oil company, and which is shown in a contract between Young- and Spellacy made November 10, 1902. According to the terms of that agree ment, Young Is entitled to one-eighth of the stock of the Mascot company and one-twelfth of that of the Illinois Crude. As the former is worth about $2,500,000, his share in that should ap proximate $300,000. The other concern is valued at about $100,000. Young's claim that he is entitled to more because of alleged manipulations of $24,002.03 by Spellacy will not be allowed by Judge Monroe, and as the damages of $500,000 have been dropped from the suit the result is sure to be a loss for Young. Spellacy conceded to Young just what Judge Monroe is willing that he should have, the exact «unount of which will be determined after the ren dering of accounts August 24. PROPRIETOR SUES MEN WHO LEASED ROOM TO HIM S. Forzley Asks Courts for $3162 Damages Another suit resulting from the in junction obtained by the Central Na tional bank, located in the O. T. John son building at Fourth street and Broadway, preventing S. Forzley from conducting a tea, coffee and light lunch establishment in the. basement of that .structure, was filed yesterday In the superior court. Forzley is the plaintiff and the de fendants are N. H. Shuff and John W. Watson, the latter being believed to transact business under the firm name Of Watson & Co. Forzley claims that Shuff, while act ing as the agent for Watson, while both are alleged to have no right to rent the basement for such a purpose, did nev ertheless sublease it to him to conduct the tea, coffee and lunch establishment November 29, 1903. On the ground that the fumes from the cooking wore a great annoyance, the bank officials soon sought an In junction preventing Forzley from con ducting his business below them, and they obtained the restraining order Ferbuary 27, 1910. Forzley now says that he expended $9°3 50 in fixtures for his lunch room, but because of the hurry in which he had to vacate the premises he was un able to dispose of them for more than $S-'.70. He asserts also that he spent $10" in defending himself in the injunc tion proceedings, and in addition says that while he was in command he was making a net profit of $7r. a month, and therefore, if the lease had run the re mainder of the time for which it was made, thirty months, his profits would have been $2250. Claiming, therefore, that all of his financial troubles are results of Hhuff and Watson leasing to him what they had no right to rent for such a pur pose, he asks the court to award him judgment for a total of S3IS2 and costs. ART GLASS MAKER SUES BUILDING STOCK OWNERS E. T. Off and Hugh E. Montgomery were made defendants In a suit Bled In the superior court yesterday by W. Loßoj- Dixon, a member of the Ulxon Art Glass company of Pasadena, who wants judgment of $401.60 against the former ami $421.70 against the latter. Dlxon alleges that the East Colorado Street Building company of Pasadena owes his concern a sum which, with interest for many months, amounts to $"'3ll and that Off's share In tile in debtedness, llgured from the fact that he owns 2000 shares in the building company, Is $401.60 and that Montgom ery, who owns 2100 shares, should pay $421.70.

Humphreys of the Board of 1 Public Works Acquires Deer Stalking Education W. M. Humphreys of the board of public works has returned from an eight days' trip along the line of the j aqueduct, bubbling over with^entlnisi- i asm for the project. He was accom panied by Homer Hamlin, city en- | gineer, and J. R. Prince, searcher in I the engineering department. A few days rest was Mr. Hum- j phreys' principal object in his trip, but he acquired a liberal education in geology, engineering and Owens val ley fauna. The principal geological feature that impressed Mr. Humphreys was the formation of the mountains and he dis covered one feature that has, not been dwelt on to any extent in the various stories of the aqueduct. This is the formation of a number of mountains in Long valley. The tops of these i mountains are of a soft stone forma tion and as flat on top as though they had been pressed with a steam roller, said Mr. Humphreys. When the snow on these mountain tops melts it seeps into the soft stone formation and it Hows out later in the year in clear, cold streams. All this water belongs to Los Angeles and as it comes out in the summer months when most needed It insures a steady flow that is not possible with the or dinary mountain formation. But shooting at a deer and killing a. coyote was the wierdest experience Mr. ] Humphreys had on his trip. While bowling along in an automobile in Long valley Mr. Humphreys saw a deer on top of a hogback mountain, i There wasn't any doubt that it was a I deer. Both Mr. Hamlin and Mr. Prince I saw it and not one in the party ever touches a drop. Mr. Humphreys grabbed his trusty gun and stealthily climbed the moun tain to the point where he had seen the deer, but when he reached the spot he found a coyote. He didn't intend to make that long climb for nothing, so he shot the coyote. HAMLIN WILL ASK TO CONSTRUCT CULVERTS Thinks Contractors' Bids for the Work Are Too High When contractors want exorbitant prices for a little piece of work, Homer Hamlin, city engineer, has a plan to teach them a lesson. He advises the board of public works to reject all bids and secure authority from the council to do the work by day labor. He has done several jobs in this way, and in every case the city has done, it hundreds of dollars cheaper than the lowest bid submitted by a contractor. This is the case In the construction of the culverts across West Adams street at Hobart boulevard. Hamlin estimated that these culverts could be constructed for $1606, and this he con sidered a liberal figure. The lowest bid received by tlje board of public works was $1891.75. When Hamlin saw these figures he asked the board of public works to secure authority from the council to do the work by day labor. The board will ask the council for this privilege next Tuesday. The engineer believes it will not'cost the city more than $1500 at the highest to do the work, but he needs a good foreman. He is willing to pay a man capable or handling the work $6 a day, especially as it is a short job. UP TO HEALTH BOARD TO ACT ON GARBAGE STATION Petition Filed in Council May Be Opener for Injunction A petition to the council, couched in legal phraseology and supposed to be preliminary to an Injunction suit, was filed yesterday by the protestants against the garbage loading station at Anderson and Aliso streets. The peti tion recites what a nuisance the load ing station has become and asks that the council take immediate steps to have it abolished. The protestants say they are poor people and not able to hire lawyers and go to court as they would like to do. The matter of granting relief in this case rest 3 now with the board of health, for if that body approves the Goudge patent sanitary garbage load ing station, a plan which was presented to the public welfare committee of the council Thursday, Charles Alexander, the garbage contractor, promises to have one built within sixty days. While the loading station will probably re main where it is, the proposed build- Ins will eliminate the objectionable features. PAPERS SERVED IN THE BILLBOARD SUIT Papers in the injunction suit of T. H. B. Varney against the city of Los Angeles were served on councilmen yesterday. Varney Is known as the "billboard kin?." He objects to the operation of the new billboard ordin ance. He has been granted a tempo rary injunction and /the argument for a permanent injunction will be heard next Monday. Varney objects to three provisions of the new ordinance—the height limit of six feet, setting the billboards ten feet back of the property lines and twenty feet from a building. CITY MAY HALT PROPOSED WIDENING OF BLAINE ST.
