News of the Courts DR PRICE'S FINANCIAL DEALS PROBED IN COURT Effort Is Made to Collect Judg ment from Wife of Long Beach Psychologist The trial of the ease of J. M. Sewell against Mrs. Mary L, Price, in which the plaintiff is trying to learn Why ho cannot collect a judgment for $u.:t>.lS against the defendant's husband, Dr. "VV. R. Price, psychologist and stock promoter of Long Beach, was begun yesterday before Judge Hervcy of the superior court. Sewell purchased from Dr. Price a large block of stock in the National Gold Dredging company and later, on the ground that the stock had been sold to him under misrepresentations, ob tained a judgment for $772t>.1b against the psychologist. Obtaining the Judgment was far dif ferent from obtaining the money, ac cording to Sewell, who declare! that all he has been able to collect is $3.55 and that only with the aid of officers. He declares that Dr. Price has transferred all of his property, in cluding a valuable home at Long Beach, deposits in the Citizens Saving* bank of Long Beach and 245 shares "i stock in the Building Association of the Society of New or Practical Psych ology, valued e.t $2450, to Mrs. Price. He asks the court to set aside all of the alleged assignments of possessions to Mrs. Price by Dr. Price and to order her not to dispose of the property. WOMAN TELLS OF LOANS Sewell makes the further allegations that Dr. Price has given Mrs. Hannah Cushing a mortgage on the Long Beach home for $7000 to secure her against loss because of monely loaned to her. Sewell asserts that Mrs. Cush ing never has been in a position to make such loans. On the witness stand, however, Mrs. Cushing testified about many of her financial transac tions, declaring that through Dr. Price she had loaned $2000 on property in San Francisco owned by Mrs. Price, obtain ing 5 per cent Interest on her money. "Did you not know that you could obtain 8 per cent?" queried an attorney. "In some cases," answered Mrs. ■ Cushing, "but I prefer a safe 5 per cent to a doubtful 8 per cent." In response to more questions, Mrs. Cushing admitted that another loan she had made through Dr. Price was that of $4000 to the psychologist's friend, Clinton Johnson, in March, I'JIO, with Interest at 8 per cent, payable in advance. It Is to the Clinton Johnson named by Mrs. Cushing that Sewell asserts Dr. Price, to avoid an attachment, transferred 1400 shares of stock In the Building Association of the Society of New or Practical Psychology. Among the witnesses on the stand yesterday was Mrs. Price, who asserted that the property given to her husband was in payment of $12,000 which, when she was 18 years old, she obtained from the estate of her father and which she then turned over to her husband.

ACTION OVER OIL LAND LEASE GOES TO TRIAL Plaintiff Alleges Terms of Con tract Were Violated Trial of the action of H. C. Hullinger to obtain damages of $59,850 from the Big Sespe Oil company was begun yes terday before Judge Cole of Imperial,, sitting for Judge Moss in department ten of the superior court. Hullinger asserts he arranged for a lease of ICO acres of alleged oil proven land in Ventura county from the de fondant in the action, agreeing to pay $1 i.OOO and a one-eighth royalty for it. He entered into the lease, he said, with the belief that there were on the prop erty an oil well producing fifty barrels a pipeline to transportation facilities and mechanism needed for his successful operations. The plaintiff avers that after he had paid $2000 on the lease ho learned that the defendant could not give him a lease of the ground because it had ar title, possessing only a mining claim location. He also avers that there was no oil well on the property and that the machinery which he cx i ected to use was also lacking. Another allegation is that he con tracted with the defendant for 10,000 barrels of oil if his operation of the land did not prove successful and that the other party to the contract did not keep up to its terms. Because he was unable to supply oil to fill orders for which he had arranged and because oi his consequent loss, he wants dam ages of $59,850.

REMOVAL OF GRAVEL IS MENACING CITY BRIDGES City Must Expend $30,000 for Repairs Unless Practice Ends, Official Reports According to City Engineer Homer Ilamlin, the city soon will be called upon to expend something like $30,000 to reconstruct the underpinning and piers of bridges across the Los An geles river, and all because from 700 to 1000 cubic yards of sand and gravel are being taken from the river bed every working day in the year for use in building operations. The city charges nothing for this material, though a rule is enforced prohibiting excavating within a cer tain specified distance of bridge piers. The city engineer, however, says that this requirement will serve only as a temporary expedient. He explains I that so much material is being taken j from the river bed that the level is j materially lowered and each flood, he j says, will wash more and more of the protecting sand and gravel from the I pier foundations into the excavations j lower down stream. Ultimately, Mr. j Hamlin says, this will lead to serious trouble. The matter came before the board of public works yesterday in the shape of a suggestion from Commis sioner Humphreys that the city coun cil be asked to adopt an ordinance prohibiting the use of the sand and gravel for any but building purposes. The objection to the plan, Mr. Humph reys confessed, was that a stretch of live miles of river bed would have to be covered by inspectors, and he sug gested meeting this expense by charg ing a nominal fee for the material re moved. He said that comparatively little material probably is being used for purposes other than building oper ations at the present time, but thought it would do no harm to safeguard the future. Subsequently it developed that the ordinance was desired to prevent the use of river bed sand and gravel to construct the approaches of the Buena Vista street bridge and as a compro mise it was decided to , change the specifications for that work so that other materials will be required for this purpose.
