      FORECLOSURE JUDGEMENT
      San Francisco Call, Volume 87, Number 66, 4 February 1900
      Judgement Granted in Favor of the Farmers' and Merchants' Bank
      LOS ANGELES . Feb 3.-Judge Allen rendered his decision in the big Shorb foreclosure suit to-day and gave judgement to the Farmers' and Merchants' Bank of Los Angeles for $164,000, with accrued interest, amountting in all to over $182,000. The suit was against Maria Jesus Shorb and others, and a vigorous contest was made. Mrs. Shorb, who is the widow of the late J. de Barth Shorb, is making a desperate effort to save even the shreds of a tattered fortune.
      Whatever rights the Shorb children may have in the property about to be foreclosed must be the subject of a separate litigation against the bank if they are not satisfied with the judgment just rendered. Mrs. Shorb, it is understood, will appeal the case to the Supreme Court.
