P. liun-i-.-t.'-, Ki, y. !c .-iii..^ C 'itrtia A vt. One of the longest and tnogt closely contested preliminary examinations ever held in this township is drawing to a Hose in the inquiry being held concerning the frusta surrounding the fatal shooting of William F. ^Beale of Walnut Center by Ollie O. Corley, a ranch baud in the employ of | Elmer E. Cook, which occurred on j August (ith'at the Cook ranch. The examination was started on Wednesday morning of this week, continued until Thursday, the session lasting all day, continued again until Friday, and the close of the proceedings on Friday evening found the case still unready for Justice Marshall's advisement, being carried over until Wednesday, August 2Gtn, when it is expected it will close. The examination has been dramatic in places and sensational throughout, bringing into prominence members of well- respected families in Walnut Center. Unofficial opinion seems to be about evenly divided, as to whether or not Corley will be held to answer to the Superior court on the charge of murder. BEALE'S ARTICULO MORTI. The greatest contest of the trial waa the argument, between Assistant District Attorney,^ MoQanifi* for the. prosecution and Attorney Davis of the firm of Davis, Rush * Willis for the defense, on the question of admitting the dying statement made by Beale at the California hospital to District Attorney Fredericks. Tdis point was fought all Thursday attention and far into the morning of Friday, and finally became a part of the evidence through its being admitted as such by Justice Marshall. Attorney DRV is' contention was based on the argument that Beale, at, the time the statement was made, bad not, given up all hope of recovery, and therefore the document could not bo looked upon as a solemn declaration of a man approaching inevitable death. It was known to a few that the reason for the bitter fight against introducing this document was made because of the scandal which would arise on its being read, but it was a surprise to the greater number when it was read. Beale's statement in part is as follows: "I was (on the day of the shooting) running my engine, and I came down to see how the irrigation was getting along, and when I came back I crossed the oichard nursery stock and was cutting off suckers, and all at once I heard the engine make a few nilsweH and supposed something was wrong. I cross- ed the ditch in the ronil and ran right into this man (Corley) find ns I turned into the rood he jumped oft! his team. 1 didn't know what it meant. I thought there was something wrong witli his t.oatn. Ami as I walked up to go by he snid: 'Here, I understand you have been lying about me. Did you ever see mo do- wrong with Mrs. Cook? I said I did. If you were doing that wit h my wife there would be something doing.' !' Mr. Fredericks— 'Mr. Beale, this man Corley has made a statement to me which is entirely different from the one you are making. I want to call attention again to the fact that you are making this statement at the end of your life, This is the end. You wouldn't wrong anyone at this time?" Beale—"Certainly not." Fredericks—-"Then you may proceed." Beale—"When I said that he reached in his pocket. I said to him: 'You're not going to shoot me in the back?' He had struck me in the back before and I had turned away from him. As I turned ha shot me in the back as I was running. I threttaneJ to. fell I him.. n > v •< Fredericks— "Why 1 do you think he wanted to kill you?" Beale—"Beoanse I waa pretty plain spoken about what I had seen him doing with my sister-in-law, and I bad told him so." Fredericks—"What did yon sen him doing?" Beale'a answer is bore stricken from th« document and was not read in court. CORLEY'S VERSION. On the witness stand yesterday us the last witness of the examination, the accused man, Ollie O. Corloy, in ml e a complete and lull denial of the statements made in Boale's document to the district attorney. Cor- ley'a version is in substance that ho was mowing for Mr. Cook in a field about 500 feet away from tbo pumping plant. Before he went out into the field he was told by Mrs. Cook to take a gun, and having loaned bin own gun to a friend that day, be accepted a gun from Mrs. Cook and went out into the field. He had made one or two rounds on the ma • chirm when he saw Mr. Bealo cross twenty acres and disappear in the nursery. Corloy says that his machine bad come around next to tho roful a nd was about fifteen or twenty Beautiful and Costly Residence. One of the finest residences In this section has just been completed on Barranca street, (ho splendid new home of D. L. Peters, the well known real estnte dealer of I.OB Angeles, [n Mils vicinity where elaborate and expensive dwellings are to be found on every side, the home of Mr. Peters stands out. among them as a model of quiet elegance, the result of the artistic taste of its owner. Mr. and Mrs. Peters have just completed moving Into their new homo. The eost of the building was $9,500, which does m>t include the fine stable in the rear, which Mr. Peters now employs as an inito- moliilo house. The residence sits hack flfly yards from the street In the midst of the 1 owner's 'twenty acres of Valencia and Washington navel orange trees, the ! grove which was purchased of George l Reeg last December for' $10,000, and | will be encompassed on all sides by a 1 cement retaining wall along the i st.reet.8, macadam-oil drives and cc- I ment bridge at the entrance. On each j aide of the front, drive electric Jets | flash from the low stone parapets at i equal distances as one approaches I bouse, lighting the drive brilliantly, The entrance reminds one of the colonial mansions of the east, and tho effect is heightened by a glimpse of tbe broad, stone porch, open the entire length of (.he front, of the residence. On entering the double doors the visitor ia agreeably surprised at. the open, cheerful effect obtained by the absence of the usual narrow hallway, for this house Jtaolf seems to welcome the guest before the appearance of the host.
