Gives Judgment for Defendant.
A dispatch was received from New York last nigbt to the effect -that John H. Coe. who', was found dead in- the rear of a Sixth-street &aloon last Sat urday morning, was the son of John W. Coe of Brooklyn. ;i prominent pol itician and former State .Senator. Coe i» said to have l^d a wayward life for many years. in New York. He disap peared suddenly sonic years ago and nothing was heard of him by his rel ative* till the news of his death was sent East. Coe Comes of Good Family Mrs. White Gives Up Fight. Mrs.. Jennie White, the divorced wife of the late Jonathan Whit<\ who recently lost a long legal battl« to re cover White's «state, she claiming that the decree of divorce obtained by White had been secured by fraud, yesterday filed a notice waiving her right to appeal from the decision of Judge Troutt. which declared her to be without interest in White's estate. to Leslie Falkenberg, "that the-law re stricts me-' from sending you , to * " the penitentiary. I can'oiily order your im prisonment in • the County Jaill ' but your, term -there will be the longest I can legally: impose. You are the most contemptible .wretch that ever faced this court. Your Instincts are those of the ¦ hoodlum. " I . will sentence you to morrow." • Falkenbefg;was convicted of mali ciously obtaining a warrant for the' ar rest of -Mamie Garrlty, the mother of his_ : two , illegitimate children, .with whom he had quarreled. He sent word to the woman that he' would like to see the youngest, of their offspring, a ten month-6ld babe; and when she 1 -took it to the house of his parents and left it there.' Intending to call later and get it, he swore' out! a warrant ..accusing her of abandoning the infant/ arid alleging that its "father was his brother George. In court it. came, out that he never had a brother George, and that his charge against, the woman was systematically trumped up'. for the purpose of obtain ing revenge on the unfortunate woman. Dr. Thomas- i-r. . Brennan submitted his defense yesterday .to the charge that he embezzled $37,000 : from the Rev. P. J. i Grey, 1 and evidence in* rebuttal will be heard next. Saturday ".by .Judge Fritz. R. W.'- Putnam, a notary public at Paso Robles, testified that .on Sep tember 13, 1899, while Dr. Brennan and Father Grqjr were staying at the hotel there, the latter signed a document as signing all his money on deposit in .the Hibernia Bank to the defendant, and that the aged clergyman 'seemed to be "in good and vigorous mind" at the time. Five photographs of as many different houses in which the doctor and priest had dwelt were produced to disprove the charge that the defendant had insufficiently cared for his pa tient's comfort." Mary Ann Wilkinson, who had served as housekeeper for Brennan, testified that his 'treatment of Father Grey had always been good, and then Brennan submitted ah affida vit made by him and dated January 7, 1904, that- Father Grey had signed th,e checks? on which he drew the $37,000 from the Hibernia Bank. After he had been sentenced to six months' .imprisonment for vagrancy John Roach glared at Judge Mogan and yelled: ."^Vhat.have I done to get such a dose as that?" " . Then the, court gave him thirty days additional for.disturbing the peace, and John again bridled up and was about, to say something more when Bailiff Hickey considerately grasped his col lar and harried him from the. court room. ' • . . Myrtle and Francis Gallagher are held' to answer to- the Superior Court on a charge of robbing John Parker of $60 in a Minna-street lodging-house. The defendants are man and wife, having been married many years, in Judge -Conjan's court- each tried to pass up to the other sole responsibility for. the robbery. "Their bail 1 was fixed at $500 each.- • • . . ' !- ;.• Teresa. Hendry. accused' of; bombard ing with rocks the "residence 'of v W. F.

The .complaining ..witness did'. not appear- to prosecute and the de fendant's counsel dramatically declared his readiness to proceed with' the trial and demanded, either ;instant dismissal or-.the immediate production of' testi mony sufficient to convict. 'Then he darkly hinted .that the complainant had been "smuggled away.". : A' continuance till to-morrow was ordered. »\ ¦ The defendant 'alleges that *he.'has a c!aim against. Mr. Whittler for an injury inflicted' in the long ago and that she is willing to -setUe-it-for $7000 cash. Some time ago she was arrested for assailing the complainant' at his place of business and Judge Mogan dis missed the case wHen she had -prom ised to abstain from repeating the of fense. When she was reminded yes terday of that' promise she informed the court that she had not broken it. as her latest offense was not com mitted at the place" of business, but at the residence of the complainant. Julius Kruttschnitt, the newly ap pointed 'director of transportation of the HRrriman lines, yesterday stated that in a few days a circular will be is sued announcing the appointment .of A. L. Mohler, president of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company, to the position of; general manager of. the Union Pacific Company's lines* east of Green ¦ River.-. . •• . '• In this way the operating responsi bilities of the entire Union Pacific road and 'its branch lines will b» about equally divided between Mohler and W. H. Bancroft, who was appointed gen eral manager of the Union Pacific lines shortly after the retirement of Horace G. Burt. Bancroft's Jurisdiction will include the Union Pacific from Green river Ho Ogden. the Oregon Short. Line and' the Salt' Lake division of the Cen tral Pacific road, between Reno and Ogden. Mohler's successor as j general manager of : the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company, Mr. Kruttschnitt said, -will be E. E. Calvin,- at present assistant general manager of the Ore gon-Short Line. To him will also be assigned the charge of all the Southern Pacific Company's lines in Oregon. These changes, explained Mr. Krutt schnitt, will greatly'facilitate the gen eral operating of all the Harriman lines from the office of the director of trans portation in Chicago. Wllii KEPORT TO CHICAGO. "General Manager Bancroft," said Mr.. Kruttschnitt, '"will, have his head quarters in Salt Lake, General Mana ger Mohler will operate from offices in Omaha and General Manager Ca)vin will remove to Portland. At present the' manager of the lines in Oregon re ports to the' general manager of the Southern Pacific Company in this city. In the future, however, he and the two general managers of the Union Pacific systems and the Oregon Short Line will report direct to Chicago." Mr. Kruttschnitt added that Charles H. Markhanr, his successor as general manager of the Pacific system of the Southern Pacific, will arrive here in a few days and 'immediately proceed to acquaint himself with his^new duties. Mr. Kruttschnitt expects to remain in San Francisco several weeks. . A telegram was received by Passen ger Traffic Manager E. O. McCormick of the. Southern Pacific Company yes terday stating - that j his "successor, Charles Fee, will arrive on Sunday, and it is very likejy that the new offi cial of the Harriman .line will be in ducted into offic.e on Monday next. Let ters .received here • by several railroad men from •friends of Fee in St. Paul state that. the officials of the Northern Pacific Company have been striving in every", manner" to persuade Fee .to re consider his '¦ acceptance ' of 'the offer from the Southern Pacific Company and remain with the Hill road.

There is considerable gossip In local ialfroad circles over a report received here from the East to the effect that S. *F. B. Morse, former assistant pas senger traffic manager of the Southern Pacific Company,- is to re-enter the railroad, business. Morse, who is one of the most popular tr#fflc men' ip the Southern States,- "retired from the Southern Pacific Company about ten months ago .to become a "partner of Daniel J,- Sully, the cotton operator, whose failure last week was a sensa tional affair in Eastern commercial circles. *• • ' .'-^ Morse, during his railroad experi ences in tha South," became "thoroughly acquainted \ with the cotton situation and this fact led to his becoming a member of the 'Sully firm, the failure of which is said to have cost him sev eral millions which he aiade during his ! short connection with Sully.; One of | the stories that reached here yesterday is that President Harriman- r>f tnfc SoHthern Pacific: Company had offered him'hisold position at Ne"w Orleans, .but local officials of the Southern "Pa cific discredited this report. 'v . Another story is that Morse has been Offered the position of passenger traffic manager of the Frisco road, witft head quarters in Chicago. E. Bonsall, formerly agent of th% Southern Pacific Company at # Napa, who has been-appointed traveling" pas senger^agent of the Harriman lines in 1 Cincinnati, left yesterday for .the scen§ of his future duties. He succeeds Warren F. Holton, who comes here as traveling passenger agent of the Pied mont Air LJne. Calmon Wins Contest. The Supreme Court tiecided yester day that Alexandrine Sarraillr, as ad-* rhinistratrix of the estate of Frederick Gamier* was not entitled to a piece of real estate deeded to the decedent ¦by Eugene Calmon under a misappre hension. Gamier negotiated a deal between Calmon and Josephine Bey ersdorff, representing that- the latter would sell a'piece of property for $11, 50j0 and the piece of land involved In litigation. Garnlec paid Mrs. Beyers dorff the $11,500 and had the e«?ra land mentioned deeded to himself.

The Thirteenth Infantry Band, sta tioned at Angel Island, will go on a concert tour about April 20 for a pe riod of twelve days. It will play in the leading cities as far east as Salt Lake. Captain George P. White, quarter master's department, has gene on leave cf absence to Los .Angeles and expects to return by the 31st. During his ab ernc Lieutenant Camp is acting .for Him. , ¦ •;.: Colonel Owen J. Sweet is not recov ering as fast from his illness as his brother officers and his friends would desire. Every attention and every com fort is given him in the General Hos pital and it is hoped that during the next fev. days he will begin to show elgns of improvement. Evidently . his etrenuous work in the Philippines has much to do with his present malady. The Twenty-ninth Infantry will be the next regiment to return from the Philippines. It is scheduled to leave thtre on April 15. According to pres ent indications and so far as o.rders from the War Department are con cerned, this regiment will be the last to leave the Islands and will not get away for twelve months at least. Troop M. Ninth Cavalry, under com mand «>f Captain L. W. Cornish, has fitted up social club quarters in its barracks. These quarters are of a pre tentious sort and all expense has been borne by the troepers themselves. The rooms are fitted with billiard and card tables and those musically Inclined can enjoy the use of a fine piano. The Philippine Scouts put up a fine drill yesterday between 3 and 4 o'clock on the grounds in front of the General Hospital buildings. For the first time the band played during the drill and added much to the smartness of the occasion. At 3 o'clock dress parade took place, followed by manual of arms, and again the band was a feature. The First Squadron. Ninth Cavalry, now stationed at Ord Barracks, has been selected for the national parks' detail of California, where it will re main for about five months. Last year the Third Squadron, now stationed at the Presidio, had the same detail. This is deemed one of the finest details in this department and is much sought after by the different squadrons of trooper? stationed on the coast. The reK^ilar monthly field day of the Tenth Infantry will be held this morn- Ing at 9 o'clock on the grounds in front cf the hospital buildings. Yesterday afternot-n the grounds were all staked off for the proceedings, and unless rain prevents a fine morning's sport can be exrected, at a splendid programme ¦ of events has been arranged. McEnerney °also * contended that the indictment was without force here as an indictment, but was to be examined as any other bit of evidence. He then attacked it as failing to make a pre sumptive case against the defendants, apd closed by citing cases to support the defendants' .contention that the Government is bound to support the indictment w&h other evidence. The same line of argumen.t was carried on by Wheeler, who again questioned the jurisdiction of 'the court at Washing ton and was reminded'by the Commis sioner of his wish not to consider that matter. McEnerney made a Tierce attack on H<^nf*y's positions/ repeating in the main arguments that had been set forth by his associates, Schlesinger and Knight, on Monday, but driving them home with great force. He further ar gued that California and Oregon not having attacked the Government's title to the lands deeded to it by the defend ants, that title was good, and therefore, that every act alleged in» the first thirty-four courts of the indictment was an entirely lawful act, because the Government had not been defrauded of any land. If any fraud had been com mitted it was against those States. Replying s tp- a question by Heney, counsel- made this remarkably frank statement of the position taken by the defense: We" hold that when a man conveys land within a reservation to the Government In exchange for.; land selected outside the reserva tion ttic transaction * js complete whei> the Govcrnmept 'acc*Dts it and cannot be at tacked, no matter whetKer the land within thc° : reservation l^as b*cn acquired' by fraud or net. » mcK.vi:hxky's able plea. The Commissioner brushed the whole matter aside with the significant re mark: "I do not regard the warrant as very material, but will admit It. As at present advised I am unwilling to go into the question of . the court's jurisdiction. It is not my business to interfere with a superior tribunal." The rest of the day was occupied by McEnerney and Wheeler in replying to Heney. Wheeler ha<J not concluded when 4 o'clock brought the adjourn ment, and he wiK continue this morn ing at 10:30. V Heney closed by citing eases to show that the Government's' titles obtained from the defendants would nof stand against a suit by California or- Oregon. Then, after offering in evidence the bench warrant from the Supr.eme Court of the District of Columbia, he rested. Schlesinger and Wheeler of defendants' counsel vigorously objected to the war rant, the latter declaring that it had been issued by a court without juris diction. "That is just what we allege these defendants did," replied Heney. "They object that the indictment is defective because it falls to set forth, in each of the thirty-four counts, which method was- used. But that was not necessary. The indictment simply charges that the defendants adopted these three methods of obtaining school lands fraudulently, in order to«have them included in the reservations and then exchange them for the thirty-four tracts of outside lands belonging to the Government." HteACOCK LETS IX LIGHT. At this point Commissioner Heacock interrupted with a question that was at once taken by all in the courtroom as showing his agreement with the Government's position. He said: L'nder the words of the indictment specify ing: the iiarrrls the defendants are charged with c^nspirinc to ohtaln from the State by fraud three methods of a!le£ed frauQ are set fcrth. May it not be true that in the. case of the larcer parcels offered to the Govern ment all three of these methods were used to obtain ! nsscssion from the States? May not one section or quarter sc-lion in the tract hsvo l>een obtained on a fictitious name, an other by using; the name of a man not quali fied to buy. and still another part of the, tract by usinp th» name of a man who. al th-HiEh nualifled. had no intention of settling upon the land? The indictment here is valid' in spite of the defendants' objection that we charge they conspired to defraud the Government by three methods, one or more of which they claim were lawfu!. In fact all we were required to. Allege was that the defendants conspired to defraud the Government and that In further ance of this unlawful agreement they com mitted one overt act. If two of the methods by which the defendants grot possession of the State school lands should b«» shown to be lawful the indictment would still stand as to the -third method. ' The forest reservation act was made neces sary by the stripping of the timber from (aft a reap throughout the* country. It has never been the Government's policy to make money out of its outside lands, but to hold them for the benefit of the citizens that should become actual settlers. It was never con templated that fraudulent titles- lnsi.1» the reservations could be exchanged for valuable tracts outside. United-, States Commissioner E. H. Heacock spent the entire day yesterday in listening to further argument in the land fraud cases on the motion of the two defendants, Fred A. Hyde and Henry P. Dimond, to dismiss the Gov ernment's complaint and relieve them from the necessity of going to the na tional capital for trial. Several inti mations given by the Commissioner during the day were accepted as indi cating his disinclination to grant the motion, unless the defendants put in evidence establishing their Innocence, but his final decision will not be known until the conclusion of the argument to-day. Francis J. Heney, special counsel for the Government, in concluding his argument, arraigned the State officials of California and Oregon for negligence in the methods by which individuals had been able to get possession of large areas of the school lands through fraudulent means, and in* violation of the purpose of the Government that these cessions Ehould benefit the whole people of the United States by being sold only to actual settlers.

Greco, night clerk at the Hotel Florence, about 4 o'clock yesterday "morning. . Policemen J. H. Pearl and D. Mur phy, .who made the arrest, ; found Greco's head so badly v cut that they sent him to the Receiving Hospital. The clerk says the afctsault grew, out of a discussion over drinks Eppinger had ordered taken to hisToom in .the Flor ence. Eppinger wanted the drinta, . but had no money to pay for them, and the bartender refused to serve them. .Then Eppinger dressed himself, went down stairs and soon afterward, Greco says, the assault was made. After striking the clerk Eppinger hurried 'back to : his room, where .he was arrested. , Eppinger declares that the clerk struck him; with a cane and ' that he merely slapped ' his face in retaliation.- '< Y.

The police have thrice. arrested Ruby for va grancy, and her • third appear ance as a defendant was made yesterday in the court of ' Conlan. A special pleader had been engaged in her behalf, and he was -in a fair way of having her dismissed when Officer Joy casually said ' ¦ something that prompted the Judge to address a few questions to jier. • The answers dis closed the fact that she had been fear ing her- child in the delectable atmos phere of the dancehouse and then she was pronounced guilty and ordered to appear to-day for sentence. Sixteen-year-old Patrick Crotty • is one of the most active and highly re spected members of the Standard Ath letic Club, an organization of boys em ployed in the Union "Iron" Works. • The club's headquarters occupy the" second floor of the building at Nineteenth and Kentucky streets, the lower portion of the structure containing Louis Edel stein's stock of Second-hand furniture. In the court' of Cabanies yesterday .Jlr. Edelstein accused Master Crotty" of having been the ringleader of a crowd of club lads that mobbed him abput- 8 o'clock Monday evening while he. was about to board a street car and . pro ceed to his '.lodge. The complainant averred furthermore that the defendant struck him with a stick. • .., •. There was tio lack of testimony, for the defense. A swarm of. Master G?rot ty's juvenile acquaintances were posi tive that from 7 till 9 o'clock '. the ac cused was in the efubroom, ' punching the bag and o indulging in other meth ods of self-rnflicted physical .torture.! Despite }he overwhelming evidence of an alibi, however. Master Crotty was bound over to keep the peace toward Mr. Edelstein and all other residents trf South San Francisco. After straining their ears and ' their imagination to ascertain what j Steven Sadowa was trying to make intelligible expert dialecticians groaned and con* fessed themselves baffled. Linguistic sharps also stood . beaten by Sadowa's verbal contortions, and finally Judge Mogan postponed his hearing of the man's testimony until the services of a person qualified to translate muti lated Polish into up-to-date ' English can be obtained. Enough of Steven's gibberish could be interpreted to con vey the information that he learned to talk in some part of Poland's fair land that is in proximity to the em pire of the Czar and has mixed up some of the Slavonic lingo with its own origipal tongue. It was .as a complainant that Steven appeared in court. He charged a mid dle aged and decidedly unprepossess ing female named Sarah Martin. with having pilfered $180 belonging to him, and it was his effort to explain how the alleged robbery occurred that drove the interpreters to despair. From other witnesses, however, it was learned that Steven came to the great, city from the town of Hanford, where for two years he had worked industriously as a dairyman and scrimped his pecuniary expenditures until he had saved $300 of his scanty salary. With this goodly sum in his pocket he sought social recreation on the Barbary Coast and found it in a Pacific-street dance hall. There he saw and was Immediately smitten by the matured charms of. Sarah. Without insisting upon the for mal introduction that in some other cir cles of society is considered an essen tial preliminary - to the proper fore gathering of strangers. Miss Martin permitted herself to be addressed col loquially by the gentleman from Han ford. In her defense it may be pleaded that his weird dialect left her in doubt as to what he was saying when he asked her to accept liquid refreshments at his expense, but such a plea must collapse before the fact that- she un hesitatingly imbibed the beverage when he handed it to her. It has also been proven by the undisputed testi mony of persons among those present that Steven and Sarah did not dance, but nosed as wall flowers and sipped arcient spirits until they departed from the temple of Terpsichore in the small hours of morning. What happened after that is known only to Steven and Sarah, but prob ably will be disclosed to-day with the aid of an interpreter, in search of whom the city is now being scoured.
