What Was Done ItnTorc the Judges
William Nelson , a Tenth street clothing
man who failed recently , confessed judg
ment in this yesterday court for the sum of
$ ! il.42 ! ) in case brought by the Rico ,
Friedman & Marshal company for goods
The injunction case of the BEH Pub
lishing company against the city council's
giving the city printing to tlio Repub
lican was boins ; argued yesterday before
Judge Wakoly. Ldward W. Simeral ap
pears for the BEE and City Attorney
Webster and Mr. Hall of
Tlmrston & Hall are opposed. Mr.
Simeral opened the case in a short argu
ment and was followed by Mr. Webster ,
who spoke over two hours. Mr. Simoral
made his clewing argument in the
afternoon. It is probable that the hear
ing of the case will bo continued during
part of to-day.
AN AFFECTING SCEN'K.
Yesterday morning twolittlo boys were
brought before Judge Wakoly on an
order to their parents to show cause why
the boya should not be sent to the reform
school. The lads namus are
John Freeman , white , and Thomas
Shooloy , colored , and they had been
guilty of some little misdemeanor. The
scene in court was very allbctinc , cspoc
iully when the aired mother of the col
ored youth pleaded for her boy. She is
a hardworking washerwoman , has a
family of seven children to support , and
tearfully promised * the judge she
would keep her boy away from
bad company if ho would onjy
bo Inft with her. She did
not want the stigma of being a "reform
school" inmate upon him. On the other
hand , the father of the white boy , who is
well-to-do took the of
a - - carpenter , case
his boy most inditlcrontly , acting ns if he
would like to have the state relieve him
of the lad's support. The contrast was
marked and the color line where parental
affection comes in was audibly com
mented on by all present. Judge
Wakoloy will decide the matter to-day
Suits in roplovin were filed yesterday by
the Independent Refining nnd National
Refining Oil companies against L. A.
Stewart for 18,000 , and against oil in
transit and 'warehouses , and other simi
lar suits will be iiled before evening.
It is now pretty well settled that there
will bo reductions both on the number of
employes and the amount 01 wages on
the Union Pacific very soon. It is said
by those likely to know that men will be
laid off in all the mechanical depart
ments and the additional work thrown
upon the old men. In all probability the
latter will "kick , " to use a phrase of the
( lay , when they will politely tfo invited
to stop down and out nnd their places
filled by new mou at lower wages. In
fact , it is said that the cleaning of the oars
by tlio Union Pacific and Pullman com
pany given to contractor Fleming is only
a nulil way of getting the n.en to work
for loss money. In fact , they have been
notified that at the Transfer clean
ing grounds that they will only
get $10 per month , whereas thcv have
been receiving $5i ( per month heretofore.
The consequence is that the railroad
men are a little uneasy.

A CAUIFOnmA ROMANCE.
TrlaU and Vlcl < oltiidc < < of a Komalo
Globe Democrat : The neighborhood
of While Rock Springs , Rl Dorado
county , California , is excited over thn
discovery of a fortune hidden in a chim
ney by a miserly old woman of tlmt
placo. The discovery forms the lust
chapter in n curious tale of the vicissi
tudes of fortune on this coast.
Mrs. Dart i-arly in the fifties lived In E.
Dorado county , and had a pretty diuipli-
tor named Lou , n girl ot sixteen , Tito
mother was well oil' , aud when her
daughter fell In love with a saloon-keeper ,
Austin Kct'ly , she violently ob
jected to thn match. The lover *
were married , however , nnd moved to
San I'rniiclsco , where Kcely made a lucky
strike In mining stocks , clearing up ever
$100,000. Ho was not satUliud , nnd
wanted to be a millionaire , and in the ef
fort lost every cent. Then ho fell to
dainklng , liquor made him demented ,
and ho was finally cent to the lii nna
asylum. His wife went to live with her
mother in El Dorado homo.
After a few months Kreley was tils'
charged cured , and ho wont to live with
ins niotlior-in-law. She Uetested him ,
and made it so unpluusanl that his In
sanity returned , and onu day In a lit ot
raiio lie chokec her to dunth. There waa
a great popular excitement over the
crime , but when the trial came Itooly
was acquitted on Ihu grounds of insanity.
The excitement ot the trial , however , re
duced Kcely almost to Imbecility , nnd It
was found ho could not even miiiugo the
farm which old Mr.s. Keoly left to her
daughter. Though search liud boon
niatju of the premises for hidden treasure ,
ns it was known the old woman had
saved ii'iieh money , nothing was found.
Mrs. Koi'ly then moved to Sacrament' ' )
and rented the farm , but the tenants so
neglei'ted the place that a few weeks ago
she determined to move out to it. Shu
bet rowed M > IUO munuv to repair the
building and make it inhabitable. To do
this it was found noei'sMTy to tear down
the chimney attached to the house. All
hopes of finding the fortune which ev
erybody was sure had been left by the old
lady find been abandoned , wliitn the fall
of the chimney revealed a strong box
containing 8,000 in gold coin. Thus
for the second time in life Mrs. Kcely
found herself in comparative luxury.
The surprise was the more agreeable
since with the welcome acquisition will
come relief Irom the poverty which for
years had been her lot. Poor Austin
hardly retains sense enough to appre
ciate this good fortune. Everybody
about White Hock Springs rejoices in the
good luck of plucky Mrs. Keoly.
It Is related as a prelude to thisstranga
story that old Mrs. Dart , to whose mono'-
getting skill and miserly proclivitieh the
Kt'oli-ys owe their release fiom poverty ,
had a romantic career herself , bhonrir-
ricd a lint ; looking man of apparent
means in Now Orleans , but her marital
happiness was of short duration , for she
soon discovered that her husband was a
professional gambler , and she abandoned
him. She came to California , and placrd
little Lou in iNow Orleans convent.
Mrs. Dart located at White Rock
Springs , and lived and died there. H r
husboiiil , likewise , followed fortune with
the setting sun , but , although ho livnd in
Sarreinento for many years , he novnr
again , to his wife. His name was Henry
