               FIREWATER TO BLAME

The Double Crime of a Drunken Indian

A Redskin Clubs One Man to Death and Shoots Another

From the Independence (Inyo) Independent

  About sunrise last Sunday morning an Indian known as Jack GUNN shot and killed frank PADERES at Crystal Spring, about seven miles from Darwin. At an earlier hour the same Indian had killed another Indian not far from the same place. The first victim seemed to have been beaten to death. The murderer had been drinking whisky during the night. Shortly before killing Paderes he came to Crystal Spring, where there is a permanent camp of wood-choppers and Indians. He made an attack with a club upon another Indian and Paderes urged him to desist. He went to a hut, got a gun and went up on a hillside overlooking camp. Paderes was then sitting in from of his cabin and did not see the Indian. The latter took deliberate aim and shot the former through the body. Gunn them proceeded to load his weapon again, an old-fashioned rifle, and Francisco OLIVAS, who was within speaking distance but entirely unarmed, called to him asking him what he meant to do. The Indian replied that he was going to kill his questioner. Olivas dashed down the canyon in an instant and started for Darwin. He threw off his clothes as he went and when he got to the mouth of the canyon divested himself of every stitch of clothing and rushed into Darwin stark naked. When the alarm was given a messenger with a team was sent out to Keeler, twenty-four miles distant. From Keeler a telegram was sent to Dr. WOODIN at Independence. The doctor quickly started for Darwin, relays of horses being furnished at Lone Pine and Keeler, but before he reached Darwin, Paderes was dead. Olivas came on to Independence on Monday and on his testimony a complaint was preferred by District Attorney GILL and a warrant for the arrest of the murderer was issued by C. MULHOLLAND, Justice of the Peace. Under Sheriff (next line not legible) evening in pursuit of Gunn. The murderer had a long start, having left the scene of his crime Sunday morning, while the Sheriff had to ride over sixty miles to reach that place and started on Monday evening. Gunn knows every trail and spring in the wild mountain and desert country to which he fled. A party of young men from Lone Pine and several Indians volunteered to go with YANEY and assist him. The hunt will be kept up as long as horses can be made to move. Frank Paderes is described as having been a very quiet and industrious man and his murder causes much indignation about Darwin.

 

               TEACHERS ELECTED

No Changes Are Made, Except in the High School

 The City Board of Education held a meeting last evening for the purpose of electing teachers for the ensuing year. The whole matter had been decided in caucus, and there were no changes except in the High School, for which teachers were elected as follows: J.H. POND, Principal; Mrs. E.B. PURNELL, First Assistant; Miss Frederika de LAGUNA, Second Assistant; Miss Anna N.  TYNDALL, Third Assistant, and Miss Minnie BARKLEY, Fourth Assistant.

  Miss Sarah LAWSON applied for a position as substitute teacher.

  It is rumored that there was some very queer “backing and filling” in the caucus, held several days ago, and that after action had been taken, there were some peculiar “reconsiderations.”

  To a Bee reporter, however, Norton acknowledged his guilt and said that nothing could be done to Ray, as he knew that he was going away and also knew that he had money.

  The Pacific Grove constable will arrive here to-morrow and return with the boys.

EVERY-DAY BIOGRAPHY

September 27

Jacques Benigne BOSSUET, a celebrated French divine, one of the great pulpit orators of France, born at Dijon, September 27, 1627. Died in Paris April 12, 1704. He has been styled by different commentators, a "Father of the Church," "The Corneille of the Pulpit" and "the Eagle of Meaux." Bossuet*s individual distinction is, that he was a great man, as well as a great orator. His funeral orations are generally esteemed the masterpieces of his eloquence. He had great occasions, and he was great to match them.

Samuel ADAMS, a celebrated American patriot and orator, born in Boston, September 27, 1722. Died in October, 1803. He was a member of the first Continental Congress, and a "signer" to the "Declaration of Independence." So ardent was his patriotism, that he was one of the leaders who were to be exempt from the pardon offered in 1775.

Joseph Green COGSWELL, L.L.D., an American scholar and author, born at Ipswich, Mass., September 27, 1786. Died November 26, 1871. He, with the historian Bancroft, founded the celebrated "Round Hill School" at Northampton, Mass.

Raphael SEMMES, an American naval officer and author, born in Charles county, Md., September 27, 1809. At the beginning of the civil war he entered the Confederate navy and obtained notoriety as the commander of the Alabama, which was so ruinous to the commerce of the Federal States. Sixty-five ships and $6,000,000 were destroyed by this one vessel, which was at last sunk in the battle with the Kearsarge off the coast of France.

Epes SARGENT, an American journalist and miscellaneous writer, born at Gloucester, Mass., September 27, 1812. Died December 30, 1880. He was an author of excellent educational works, and editor of the New York Mirror and the Boston Evening Transcript. Several of his poems have been set to music and are favorites.

Thomas NAST, an American caricaturist, born in Bavaria, September 27, 1840. When fifteen years old he began to furnish illustrations for the papers, and during the war began his long series of effective political caricatures in Harper*s Weekly. It is said the Thomas Nast did more by his caricatures to deprive Horace GREELEY of the Presidency than any other man or party. 

FALL OF A BRIDGE

IT COULD NOT STAND THE STRONG TEST

Two Men Severely Injured - Indignation in San Bernardino County

SAN BERNARDINO, September 27 - The suspension bridge with a three-hundred foot span has recently been completed over the Mojave river, near Victoria, fifty feet above the river.

Complaint was made that the bridge was unsafe and the county employed A.H. KOEBIG, civil engineer, to examine the bridge, and he pronounced it unsafe.

The California Southern railroad track ran alongside the river under the bridge, and Fred PERRIS, the railroad*s Chief Engineer, notified the Board of Supervisors that the county would be held responsible for any damage done by the bridge.

The Board declined to accept the bridge unless the contractors would put the bridge to a test and show it capable of supporting the weight called for in the contract.

This morning the test was made in the presence of the Board and many citizens.

An eight-mule team, hitched to two wagons, loaded with ore, was placed on the bridge. There were ten men on the bridge at the time, when the structure went down with a crash, severely injuring two men, named Austin ELLIS and Sam MARSH.

There is great indignation and excitement at Victoria. 

A HOUSEHOLD NECESSITY

George L. GRIFFIN, of Richmond Hill, Long Island, N.Y., recommends Allcock*s Porous Plasters in the following frank language:

"We have been using Allcock*s Porous Plasters for many years and in fact they have become a household necessity in our family. In every case where they have been applied, they have proven themselves satisfactory and given immediate relief. We recommend them very highly, and trust our experience will be the means of inducing others to give them a trial."

DEADLY ELECTRIC WIRES

WINCHENDOM, September 27 - Edward T. RYAN, aged 18, and G. BARNARD, aged 20, were instantly killed yesterday by electric wires coming in contact with an incandescent circuit on Pound street. Barnard*s hands were badly burned and it is supposed that Ryan attempted to assist him and himself fell a victim.

A TERRIBLE BLOW

 

McAuley Almost Unjoints Bishop's Neck

 

A WELL-DIRECTED SWING

 

A Very Sudden Termination of a Glove Contest

 

The glove contest at BROWNE's Comique last evening between Jack McAULEY, of San Francisco ,and Bishop of Sacramento, did not last as long as did the Turner-Hall fight of the night previous, but it was equally as exciting as long as it did last. Both men are pow-ful young fellows, but McAuley has had considerable experiences as a fighter, a fact which gave him great advantage over BISHOP, who has heretofore been satisfied with such set-tos as naturally come to a deck-hand on river steamer.

 

SMITH HAS HIS DAY

George SMITH was chosen referee and made his usual speech, varying it somewhat by announcing that "no fouls will go, short of "chawing off an ear or gouging out an eye."

In the first round, Bishop was very nervous and showed lack of confidence in himself. He made several weak and ineffectual lunges at McAuley, and was heavily thumped. It was so manifest that McCauley could win, that at the end of the round his friends urged him.

 

NOT TO FINISH BISHOP

Too speedily, but prolong the contest awhile. Acting upon this advice, McAuley attempted no slogging in the second round, until Bishop clinched him and attempted, apparently, to wring his neck, when Jack pulled away and gave his adversary a smash in the nose that brought blood.

In the third and fourth rounds Bishop showed up strong, and he went as McAuley, who was not in first-class condition, most savagely, forcing him about the ring and landing many blows upon his face. He used both left and right, but with a half-arm movement that prevented the blows producing much effort.

 

McAULEY WAS BADLY WINDED

However, and was advised to put his man out in the next round.

 

Bishop again forced the fighting in the fifth round, and banged McAuley at so lively a rate that the pugilist's friends began to get nervous. McAuley dropped his hands and "took his medicine," and Bishop's backers howled with delight. McAuley had not quit, however. He was simply waiting for an opportunity to get in "a LaBlancha swing" - which style of blow he is said to have originated, and in the delivery of which, at all events, he can give "The Marine" pointers.

 

A TERRIFIC BLOW

The proper moment finally arrived, and quick as a flash, McAuley wheeled, threw the whole weight of his body with the force of the back-handed blow, and landed his right across Bishop's neck. Bishop fell as if shot, and had he been hit on the head with a baseball bat he could hardly have been knocked out more-completely. He was carried to his chair, where his seconds made an examination to ascertain if his neck had been broken. Fortunately, the terrific blow had not gone to that extent, and Bishop was carried to a dressing-room. He was very sick for a time, but, after several hours, was able to go out upon the streets.

 

TIRED OF LIFE

 

A Laborer Hacks Himself With Knife and Razor

 

From the Marysville Democrat, March 5

 

About 12:30 this afternoon, T.J. KELLY found a dead man in the north portion of the stable on C street, with a horrible gash in his throat, and his clothing covered with blood. Coroner BEVAN was informed, and the body was removed to the undertaker's office.

 

From Mr. Kelly we learn that the man was a brickmason, and asked permission about a week ago to sleep in the barn until he could find employment, since which time he has been sleeping in the barn every night. He was seen sitting near the stable about 7:30 last evening, and as his body was quite stiff and cold, it is probable the deed was committed shortly thereafter. An examination revealed a sickening sight. The man had evidently gashed himself, and was quite successful as the several portions were lying near the body. The gash in the throat was a very deep one, and extended almost from ear to ear, the jugular vein and wind pipe being severed.

 

Lying close to the body was found a razor and a large pocket knife, both open and covered with blood.

 

The man was about 55 years of age, with dark, bushy hair and chin beard, was 5 feet 7 inches in hight, and wore a brown scapular about his neck, denoting that he was Roman Catholic.

 

George BROWN, a colored man, identified the remains as those of a man who helped lay the foundation of Joseph GIRDUER's house near Sutter City, about two years ago. He was known as "Stamping Jack."

 

AN OLD CLAIM

 

For Services Rendered Under General Fremont

 

From the Napa Journal

Benoni M. HUDSPETH died of cholera in Sacramento in 1850. At the time of his death there was due him from the Government nearly $1200 for services rendered as a member of Fremont's famous exploring expedition, and steps are just now being taken by friends to have the claim allowed to the old pioneer's sister, Mrs. N.W. WOOD, who is at the present time a resident of Napa county. Among the documents that will be forwarded to Washington to establish the justness of the claim and the identity of the original claimant is a commission signed by Governor John C. FREMONT under the date of April 2, 1847, and by which Benoni M. HUDSPETH was appointed Captain in the California Battalion, of which the late Uncle Billy EIGINGTON, of this county, was a member.

MYERS DISCHARGED

THE SHOOTING OF SASAMA DECLARED ACCIDENTAL

Conclusion of the Examination in the Police Court Yesterday Afternoon.

 

When The Bee's report of the examination of young Cyrus MYERS for the killing of eleven-year-old Guadalupe Sasama closed in the police Court yesterday afternoon, the defense began it's case by placing Patrick BURNS on the stand. He swore that he was walking along in the vicinity of Fourteenth and W streets when he heard the shots fired.

 

Louisa GUTTENBERGER, a young lady who lives in the neighborhood, testified that she saw young MYERS fire at mud hens in the pond. When she left SASAMA had approached and asked what Myers was doing. This testimony tended to corroborate the version of the affair given by Myers to Chief DREW, to the effect that Sasama was accidentally shot while taking the pistol from Myers to fire at the mud hens.

 

H.F. DILLMAN and Henry L. BUCKLEY swore that the reputation of the Spaniard Francisco REYES for honesty and veracity was exceedingly bad. Reyes is the party who claimed to have been an eye witness to the shooting.

 

Cyrus Myers, the defendant, was next called,and related a story similar in substance to that given to Chief Drew. The shooting was purely accidental. When witness was shooting at the mud hens Sasama asked to be permitted to take a shot, and was handed the pistol. Witness was stooping to pick up the empty cartridges when the pistol went off, and Sasama fell to the ground. Witness said the Sasama boy and himself had always been good friends.

 

The case was submitted without argument. After reviewing the testimony, Judge CRAVENS discharged Myers, holding that the affair, unfortunate though it was, was purely accidental. His Honor placed no reliance in the testimony of the Spaniard Reyes, who had contradicted himself in so many particulars.     

 

FALLEN FROM GRACE

Brock DORAN, who used to figure conspicuously in the Police Court when Judge BUCKLEY held the scales, was booked at the station house this morning by officer WAGNER on a charge of being drunk.

 

THE CAULFIELD RANCH

Judge VAN FLEET's Court has been occupied to-day with the case of HERZOG vs. TALBERT et als., for the recovery of a certain portion of the "ranch" of the late Henry A. CAULFIELD, and to eject the parties at present residing thereon.

SUTTER'S FORT

Some Suggestions Made by an Old Pioneer.

To the Editor of The Bee - Sir: Your valuable paper, which has ever been foremost in anything and everything that could in any way better your city, will, I am sure, be glad for a little advice from an outsider, especially when the subject is on of State interest, and that subject if Sutter's Fort. Now that the bill is passed and signed by our Chief Executive, and the fort is now the property of the State, the aim of every good citizen should be to see that the intentions of the main movers in the success of this matter are carried out.

 

In a conversation held with Co. C.F. CROCKER soon after his donation to the purchase fund of this property, he expressed a desire to see it restored to as near its original state as possible, and I agreed with him in this. But this idea , it seems, is not to be carried out, at least I should judge not from a conversation I overheard while visiting your city last week, and the substance of it was that the old property should be converted into a park, or flower garden, if you will. Now, in God's name, what attraction would this be to the tourist or sightseer? Why, every private residence in our whole State has a flower garden. There is nothing new about a thing of this kind. No, we want the old walls rebuilt, not so high as they were, but something after this, and we want the old building restored, or fastened in some way that time will not affect it, and then a building or structure built over it in the shape of a tower, or the like. After this, let a monument of General John A. SUTTER be erected there, and let every thing that is old or historical be deposited in this museum of antiquity.

 

I believe I have a right to make these suggestions, as I was the first man in this State who sent General J.G. MARTINE, of your city, $50. This was the cannon that fired the first shot, and I am proud of it and, Mr. Editor, if it is ever short of funds, I will help.

 

MUSEUM ASSOCIATION

Election of Directors at the Art Gallery Last Evening

An adjourned meeting of the California Museum Association was held last night at the Crocker Art Gallery, for the purpose of electing a Board of Directors to serve for the ensuing year.

Several matters of a business nature were disposed of, after which the election of Directors was entered upon.

 

Drs. G.L. SIMMONS and W.A. BRIGGS were placed in nomination, but declined on the ground that their professional duties engaged their whole attention.

 

D.A. LINDLEY was also placed in nomination. He likewise declined, saying that he was already giving as much time to public affairs as he could afford.

 

There being no further nominations, the Committee holding the proxics instructed the Secretary to cast the vote of the Association for the following named persons, who were declared the Board of Directors for the term: Mrs. Margaret E. CROCKER, Judge W.C. VAN FLEET, J.E. MILLS, D. LUBIN, C.U. HARTWELL, Frank MILLER, F.Y. WILLIAMS, Dr. George PYBURN, Christopher GREEN and J.A. WOODSON.

 

After the election the Board met for the purpose of effecting organization. Officers were selected as follows: President, J.A .WOODSON; Vice-President, Dr. George PYBURN; Treasurer, the Bank of D.O. MILLS.

 

BEE BUZZES

On Tuesday night last week, John MELLO, an old resident of Butte City, Amador county, drove over a grade near Morgan mine and was crushed to death under his wagon.

 

 

JUMPED INTO THE SLOUGH

Another Complaint About a Railroad Switch.

A Big Coal Bill Paid.

were read by mayor COMSTOCK, and unanimously adopted by the Trustees.

 

Police Court Clerk's Salary

Mayor COMSTOCK brought up the matter of the appointment of Alex. DUNN

as Clerk of the Police Court, and asked the Trustees if they were ready

to confirm it. As there was some dispute about whether they could be

compelled to pay him the salary of $150 per month, as provided by the

Legislature, the question was laid over for further investigation. It was

remarked that Dunn would have a hard time getting such a large salary,

since no provision had been made for it in the tax levy. City Attorney

HART had told the Mayor that as the law provided for it, the salary

would have to be paid. There is, therefore, a prospect of some more legal

sparring, as the case is similar to the recent controversy over the

appointment of extra policemen.

 

   Contractor PIERSON notified the Trustees that the repairs he had

been making upon the levee at the foot of V street were now ready for

inspection. The Board decided to go and see the work at 2 o'clock Thursday

afternoon.

 

Complaint Against the Poundmaster.

G.W. HARLOW complained that the Poundmaster had illegally taken a cow

belonging to him from Twenty-fifth and K streets. The Board promised to

investigate.

 

AH JIM ALL RIGHT

He Peddled From a Sack and Not a Basket.

 

Judge CATLIN Again Reverses a Decision of the Police Court.

 

 In the Police Court, several weeks ago, Judge CRAVENS found a Chinaman

named Ah Jim guilty of peddling peanuts without a license, contrary to

an ordinance of the city.

 

    The Chinaman appealed to the Superior Court, and Judge CATLIN

rendered a decision this morning reversing the Police Court. The decision is

as follows:

 

The ordinance (Section 12, ordinance 17) requires a license to be taken

out for "peddling fruit, nuts and candies and edibles from a basket."

 

   The defendant did not peddle the nuts from a "hand basket," but from

a sack.

 

   At first view it may seem rather technical to make the distinction,

but penal statutes are to be strictly construed.

 

   The ordinance is not against peddling peanuts, but is against

peddling them in a hand basket. To ** readily understand that there might be

no objections to peddling peanuts, while the mode of peddling them

(rest of line not legible).

 

   The ordinance has specified the manner of pursuing the occupation,

rather than the occupation itself.

 

   As a matter of construction I am limited to the words used and

cannot speculate upon the intention of the authors of the ordinance.

 

   I can find no way of construing a "sack" to mean a "hand basket." If

the ordinance had been directed against peddling from a "sack" I would

find it difficult to construe the word "sack" to mean "hand basket."

   Judgement reversed and complaint dismissed.

MAKING SCHOOL BOOKS

Progress of Work on the State Series Geography.

It Will Be Embellished With Twenty-three Finely Executed and Instructive Engravings

C.H. HOLMES, engraver for the State School-book Series, and his assistant, W.E. SMITH, are busily engaged in preparing the engravings which are to appear in the new geography. The drawings from which the engravers are making the wood-cuts were designed by Charles DICKMAN of San Francisco and Mrs. Miriam WEEKES of Sonoma, with the aid of W.H.V. RAYMOND, chief editor of the State School-book Series.

Great care is being taken by Mr. Holmes and Mr. Smith in the work of reproducing these drawings, and the book when issued will, it is claimed, delight the teachers. Mr .Raymond is not yet prepared to say, however, when the geography will be ready for use, but it is safe to say that it will be quite a long time even before the State Printer commences work on it.

There will be in all thirty-three engravings in the book (not including maps) and they will differ greatly in design from those in other geographies. On one page there will be four designs showing the difference in the strength of the light furnished by a candle, a coal oil lamp, a gas-jet and an electric light. This will illustrate the progress of science and the growth of inventive genius in the world.

Accurate engravings of Sutter*s Fort and the old mill at Coloma, where gold was discovered, will adorn one of the pages of the book.

An entire page will be taken up in showing the wonderful progress in invention for cooking purposes. The first cut shows the old-fashioned style of cooking by suspending an iron kettle from the center of three upright sticks joined at the top; the second shows the brick oven and fireplace; the third is a cut of a stove, and the fourth an engraving of the modern range, with its appliances.

One unique design shows a blank space in the center of the page shaped like the map of North America, and surrounding this are engravings so placed as to show the natural products of the soil in the different sections of the continent, and the temperature of the regions.

The methods of transportation by land in modern and primitive times are shown in another place. The Arabs are seen on the desert with their camels loaded with freight; an American party crossing the plains by wagon-train is portrayed; then there are pack animals climbing the winding road up the mountain side; next, the stage coach, and finally the complete railroad train of the present day.

A Greek church at Sitka, and an Indian hut and a grave in the same region are shown in small cuts.

The California Big Trees are pictured and also the primitive and modern dwellings. The advancement in style is illustrated by a comparison of the olden American and African hut with the mansions of the present day.

The interior of a bank is shown, illustrating the methods of transacting commercial business.

There are also engravings of types of the different races; the date and fan palm trees; a milkmaid in Holland costume; the city of Rotterdam; the town of Hammerfest (the most northern town in Europe); Moscow in Russia; the most northern cape in Europe, and several other interesting geographical features.

Twenty-three of the engravings have been finished, but it will take almost six months of hard work to complete the remaining ten. 

CONDITION OF THE VICTIMS

Mamie Frates Appears Better - Julius Wohl is Dangerously Hurt

There seems to be some ground on which to build a hope that Mamie Frates, the victim of John Perry*s pistol, may recover. She was feeling quite bright yesterday, but the doctors do not know where lies the bullet that entered her skull, and therefore cannot tell how dangerously she is wounded.

Julius Wohl, the car-driver who was so brutally assaulted by E.F. BURKE on Sunday, was not able to leave his room yesterday to testify against his assailant. He complains of terrible pains in his head, and there is no telling but that his injury may yet take a fatal turn.

The condition of Robert ALLEN, who was hammered into insensibility some weeks ago by Jack HALEY, GORDON and other thugs, and then robbed, is not much changed. Physically he is gaining strength, but mentally his progress toward recovery is very slow. It takes very little to excite him, and he is frequently out of his mind. 

The "Horribles"

A meeting was held last evening, at the office of Dr. SHAW, for the purpose of arranging for a "Horrible" parade on the Fourth of July.

Dr. Shaw called the meeting to order, and briefly stated its object.

The following officers were elected: W.B. HAMILTON, President; J.E. MAYO, Vice-President; Jos HILL Secretary; Finance Committee, Peter MENKEN, J. SCROGGS, J.E. MAYO, K.E. ROBBINS, Frank WOODSON, T. DITTMAY, John MILLER and Joe KLEIN.

No programme was outlined, but those interested will hold another meeting in a few days to determine some line of action. 

Farrell McMorry*s Estate

The will of the late Farrell McMorry, formerly of this city, has been filed for probate in San Francisco. All the property is declared to be community estate, and is left to the widow, at her death to go the daughter and her children. There is, however, provision for the payment every month of $50 to William McMorry, brother of the testator, during his natural life. Testator also directs that his tomb shall cost $4,000. The value of the estate is not given, but it is said to be a large figure. 

Vance Back Again

D.M. Vance, who with lawyer Carpenter of Stockton was sentenced to 200 day*s imprisonment in the County Jail of this county some months ago by Judge Catlin, was taken into custody by Sheriff Stanley at Stockton yesterday and brought back to this city to serve out his unexpired term. Lawyer Carpenter tried to stop the Sheriff and his prisoner by means of habeas corpus, but the court dismissed the writ.

APROPOS OF RELICS

Sheriff CUNNINGHAM has in his office one of the most cheerful collections of law-breaking implements I ever saw. When I get particularly blue I go and stand in front of it with my hat off, and muse until I am thoroughly exhilarated. The cabinet in which these treasures of the Sheriff are stored is a large one, and it is full to overflowing with all sorts of knickknacks, bearing inscriptions which inform the spectator in a vivacious way that they have been used with effect. The piece of glass with which Fred GRAVES committed suicide, and which is covered with his gore, is a grave subject for contemplation. Then there is the knife with which WILSON cut KENNEDY; the knife that killed John GRIFFIN; the knife that killed a silversmith; the knuckles used by a San Francisco hoodlum; the knife used on HUGHES; the pistol with which O.G. LANGMAN was shot; the pistol with which Arthur McKOWAN killed himself; the coat of mail worn by George COX; knots from the ropes that hung FRENCH, MARTIN and others; a skull dug up in the street; shotguns used by stage robbers; burglar’s tools; counterfeiter’s outfits, and a hundred other little bits of rare, quaint and curious criminal vitru - enough to make the most somber old sinner in the land revert lovingly to the achievements of his youth. 

SOMETHING MORE CHEERFUL

While rambling around over the city I ran across an old graveyard, a forsaken, apparently forgotten “silent city,” where the weeds have held undisputed sway for years, and desolation has a dead cinch on every grave.

In this old cemetery there is only one tombstone, standing in a corner. The rest have been knocked over and dragged away by the champion pitchers and catchers of the future, who were in need of a baseball ground near the center of the city. The diamond is laid out in the middle of the cemetery, and the small boy, who never fails to bring into harmonious contact all the materials at his disposal, has used a tombstone for the home plate. 

Church Entertainment

The Ladies’ Aid Society of the First Baptist Church gave a musicale and literary social last evening in their church. The opening piece was a piano solo by the Misses Mamie MALONE, Nellie HARRIS and Mabel LYONS. This was followed by a solo by Rev. STEVENSON, “The Hunter’s Glee”; a recitation, “Aunt Serena’s Trialations,” Miss May WOOD; saxophone solo, Frank KLEINSORGE; Scotch Song, Alex GIBSON; banjo solo, Edward GIBSON; piano solo, Ethel DeMATANVILLE; vocal solo, Mr. GREENLAW; vocal solo, Miss DAVIS.

After the entertainment the guests were served with ice cream and cake by the ladies. There was a large crowd present. 

Bell’s Saturday Sale

Bell & Co. will sell at auction to-day, at 10 A.M., at 519 J street, the furniture of two houses, removed to salesrooms for convenience of sale, consisting of parlor, dining-room, bedroom and kitchen furniture, and a large lot of spreads, comforters, linen sheets, etc.

At the commencement of the sale, by order of George W. BOOTH, guardian of the estate of John STEWART, there will be sold a diamond pin, gold watch, plated chain, gold-headed cane, etc. Also, horses, buggies, harness, etc. 

Back to Texas

Sheriff PHILLIPS, of Collins County, Texas, arrived last evening from San Francisco, where he has been sojourning for several days, and will to-day start back for Texas with HARDING and BATES, the negro incendiaries and highwaymen, who were captured here. 

Death of John Perry’s Victim

Mamie Frates FERNANDES, the poor girl who was shot the other day by John Enos PERRY, because she would not marry him, died last night at the home of her parents, 224 P street. Her funeral will take place to-morrow.

The property was sold to Schwekendiek for that price.

PASSED AWAY

DEATH OF ONE OF CALIFORNIA’S PIONEER PREACHERS

The Rev. J.A. Bruner Had Been in the Pulpit for Half a Century.

A telegram was received this morning from San Leandro, announcing the death at that place of Rev. Joseph Asbury BRUNER, father of Hon. Elwood BRUNER and A.J. BRUNER, of this city. He passed away at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Charles WOODMAN.

The deceased was one of the oldest and best known ministers on the Pacific Coast, and his voice has been heard from nearly every Methodist pulpit in the state. He was a native of Virginia and had reached the ripe old age of three score and ten years. His parents removed to Ohio in the early days, and he was educated and became a minister of the gospel in that state. He was married in Chillecorbe, Ohio, and his wife only preceded him to the grave two years ago. Eight children were born to them: six sons and two daughters. Five of the sons and one of the daughters are still living. Rev. Mr. BRUNER and his family came to California in 18**, locating at Marysville where he preached for a number of years. In 1863 and 1864 he occupied a pulpit in Sacramento. He was a very talented man and one of the most eloquent and forcible pulpit orators on California. He was always of a genial nature, happiest when doing something to help others out of distress. He always took an active interest in educational matters and graduated four of his sons from the University of the Pacific.

At the last conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church the deceased preached his semi-centennial sermon, and then retired from active life. He was last located at West Berkeley. At the last session of the Legislature he was elected Chaplain of the Senate, but owing to ill-health he was only able to perform his duties for a short time. The cause of his death was dropsy of the heart.

The funeral will take place in Sacramento on next Tuesday. 

MUSIC AT THE PLAZA

A Fine Programme Arranged for To-morrow Evening

C.A. NEALE, the accomplished leader of the First Artillery band, has arranged an exceptionally fine musical programme for the open-air concert to be given at the Plaza to-morrow evening. The seventh number will be an adaptation by Mr. NEALE of “The Lover’s Quarrel,” introduced here by Thatcher’s minstrels, and which “caught on immensely.” 

THE BEZIRK FESTIVAL

George BERNHARD, of the El Dorado Saloon, 826 J street, has received the privileges for the Turn Bezirk. In this the management was wise, for no one will better look to the interest of the Lociety than Mr. Bernhard. 

THE FOREST HILL CRANK

He Is Still in Jail and Had Been Drinking

Frank ALBRECHT, the demented merchant of Forest Hill, Placer county, of whose wanderings with his two little boys there was an account in last evening’s Bee, is still in the county jail. The two boys have been put in charge of a lady. The mother of Albrecht, accompanied by the Assessor of Placer, arrived here this morning. The young man will be kept in confinement until Monday, and if he is not all right by that time he will be examined by the Commissioners of Lunacy.

It appears that Albrecht has been drinking heavily of late. He married a woman who, it is said, is addicted to strong drink, and who rarely allows herself to become sober, and he doubtless determined to keep up with the pace set by his “better half.” A physician who has examined Albrecht, however, is doubtful whether he will regain his mental equilibrium by getting the whisky out of his system. 

MURDEROUS CHINESE

A Fruitless Search of Highbinders In The Coolie Quarter.

Officer WILSON raided a notorious highbinders’ roost in Chinatown last night and searched a number of the Mongolian toughs for weapons. The hunt proved unavailing, however, for the highbinders propensities are careful not to carry weapons in these days unless when they have direct occasion to use them.

On Thursday night one of the gang met one of the fallen Chinese females, the chattel of some fat coolie, and began to abuse her as savagely as the Chinese vernacular would permit. When she retorted he drew a pistol and blazed away a couple of times in the air, apparently to terrify her, and then fled into one of the innumerable byways of that quarter. 

MRS.,HARRRIGAN DEAD

A Well Known Woman Passes Away Early This Morning

Mrs. Margaret HARRIGAN died at her residence in the rear of Pioneer Hall at 1:30 o’clock this morning. The deceased was the wife of Thomas Harrigan, one of the early comers to California and the owner at the time of his death, 1862, of what was then known as the Centerville race track, located a little south of the County Hospital. He left his property to his wife who was obliged to mortgage it. The mortgage was subsequently foreclosed. The loss of the land seemed to prey on the mind of Mrs. Harrigan and she always considered that she had been defrauded out of what was rightfully her property. For years she has haunted the law courts and the offices of the county officials and lawyers, and for a long time had standing advertisements in various papers of the State, offering large sums to an attorney who would restore the estate to her.

Mrs. Harrigan was a native of New York, aged 55 years, and leaves a son and a daughter. The former is located in Suisun, and Miss Harrigan occupies a position in the Postofficce in this city.

The funeral will take place from the Cathedral, to-morrow afternoon, 1t 3:30 o’clock.

Five Hundred Dollars Raised to Retain a Lawyer to Sue Out an Injunction Against the City.

The people below town along the line of the drainage canal evidently do not intend to tolerate the drainage canal any longer. They say that they see no prospect of getting the city of Sacramento to do anything in the direction of stopping the dumping of sewage into the canal, and they have therefore come to the conclusion to see what the law will do protect them against what they maintain is a grievous wrong.

A meeting was held recently by the owners of land affected by the canal to consider what steps should be taken to compel an abatement of the nuisance. It was finally concluded to take legal proceedings against the city. A subscription list was prepared and Carl MUNGER appointed to secure signatures. The meeting resolved to enter into an agreement with Judge J.W. ARMSTRONG to represent the injured people and an agreement with the attorney was prepared to begin proceedings at once.

MUNGER had no trouble in getting all the money needed and several subscriptions of $100 each were made.

The attorney agrees on his part to push the proceedings to a final conclusion, however far the city may see fit to control the matter.

It certainly looks now as if the issue were fairly joined, and if the city still refuses to care for the sewage without injury to people below the city, who have rights, it will find itself engaged in a costly series of litigation.

The people who propose to prosecute this suit evidently mean business and Sacramento might as well, apparently, make up its mind that the nuisance complained of must be abated or else that the lawyers will be fronted a fine opportunity to make a raid on the treasury. 

 

Some large and luscious cherries grown in the garden of E. ELLIS, at Ninth and Q streets, were sent to The Bee office, to-day. 

AN OLD MAN’S DARLING

She Gets Away With a Large Sum of Money

NEW YORK, June 20 - Until last Monday Samuel BURBANK, one of the wealthiest merchants of Hempstead, L.I., had remained a bachelor. That day he married Lottie OXFORD, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Harry OXFORD, an insurance broker of Brooklyn.

Oxford had asked BURBANK for the loan of $5,000 to buy a house. Burbank declined, but said he would give him $10,000 if he made Lottie marry him. Oxford took time to think the staggering proposition over, and in a few days said that the girl would marry Burbank if the $10,000 was forthcoming.

Burbank then formally proposed to the girl, was accepted, and on Monday married. After the marriage Lottie refused point blank to go home with her husband, and he left without the wife or the $10,000.

Later he brought suit, charging Oxford and his daughter with conspiracy to rob him of $10,000, and now Oxford has brought suit against him for slander. 

A MYSTERY DISPELLED

A Burglar Confesses That He Committed a Murder

WICHITA (Kas.), June 20 - The mystery surrounding the murder of Christopher HELM, a wealthy cattleman whose body was found on the Cherokee strip, riddled with bullets, has been dispelled. A burglar who was fatally shot at Cherokee, Texas, confessed that he and a man named Ben SCOTT killed HELM and robbed his body of a large sum of money. It is said the authorities have Scott located.

               CHARGED WITH LARCENY

Mrs. Johnson Falls Sick, and Into the Hands of the Police

 A woman named Mrs. JENSEN occupies a cell at the Police Station, where she is detained on suspicion of being the person who was recently accused there of stealing some jewelry from the residence of a family in which she was employed.

  It appears that she was taken ill at a lodging-house and was removed to the Receiving Hospital for treatment. From a conversation with her there, and the fact that she answered the description of the woman who is wanted at Walnut Grove, and the further fact that she came from the place, the police assumed that she was the one wanted there.

  A telephone message to the Record-Union from Walnut Grove last night stated the Mrs. Jensen is the party who is accused of having stolen two rings from a family at New Hope, near there.

  A Constable left there last night to arrest and take her back.

               FIGHTING OFF DEATH

Police Officer Arlington Still Lives But is Unconscious

Little Hope for His Recovery - Annie Manning’s Will - Result of the Autopsy

 The terrible tragedy in which Police Officer William ARLINGTON was shot by his mistress, Annie MANNING, who afterward shot herself ,was the talk of the city yesterday.

  Everybody knew the popular officer, and all liked him.

  Despite the fact that the doctors pronounced Arlington’s wounds fatal, he is still alive, and may live for several days yet. Some even believe that he may get well. City Physician NICHOLS said that while he considered that the wounded officer did not have

               ONE CHANCE IN A HUNDRED

To survive the effects of the deadly bullet, yet there had been cases in his practice in which persons had recovered from just such wounds. Of course, there is no hope of ever extracting the bullet, and if the officer recovers he will always carry the bullet in his brain.

  Hosts of the wounded officer’s friends called at the police station yesterday with the expectation of seeing him, but in each case they were denied admission into the hospital, the doctor having left strict orders in this regard. The sufferer has to be kept as quiet as possible, and there is noise enough about the place caused by passing trains, without that which would be added by visitors.

  A nurse is in constant attendance, and everything is being done to make the wounded man as comfortable as possible. He is still unconscious. At times he appears to rally and to recognize those about him but he cannot speak.

               ANNIE MANNING’S DEATH

 The remains of Annie Manning are still at the morgue. Yesterday afternoon Dr. G.A. WHITE, assisted by Drs. C.B. NICHOLS and G.C. SIMMONS, performed an autopsy on the body. Dr. White submitted the following report of the autopsy to Coroner George CLARK, and it will be produced at the inquest:

 “In the presence of Drs. G.C. Simmons and C.B .Nichols, I this day held an autopsical examination of the body of Annie Manning, deceased. There was found a gunshot wound upon the right temple and a slight wound upon the chin. The bullet which made the wound of entrance was felt beneath the scalp upon the opposite side of the head, and several fragments of bone, crushed out by the passing ball, were felt in the immediate neighborhood of the ball.

               FRACTURED IRREGULARLY

 “Upon raising the scalp the skull was found to be fractured irregularly in its entire circumference. The ball passed transversely through the two hemispheres of the brain, tearing away the upper part of the corpora striata. The wound of entrance was irregular in shape, one and one-half inches in length by measurement. No power-marks were observed n the skin, but powder discoloration was noticed in the temporal muscle beneath, indicating that the muzzle of the pistol was placed against the temple. The great size of this wound was caused by laceration from powder explosion.

  “The slight wound seen on the chin was probably caused by falling upon the corner of a piece of furniture or other hard object. No other wounds or abrasions were found upon the body. The wound was necessarily fatal and death must have been instantaneous.”

               THE WOMAN’S WILL

 The will of Annie Manning was filed in the County Clerk’s office yesterday for probate. It is a brief and simple document. In it the testator says: “I give and bequeath unto my mother, Mrs. William MEYERS, of 121 Lafayette street, Stockton, Cal., all the property, both real and personal, of every kind and nature which I own, or may have or own at the time of my death, absolutely and unconditionally to her.”

  The mother of the deceased is also named in the will as executrix of the estate without bonds. The will was drawn up just a year ago.

  Accompanying the will is Mrs. Meyer’s petition for letters of administration. She estimates the value of the estate at $5,000. It consists of household furniture, jewelry and money in bank.

 

               EX-CONVICTS

The Police Will Henceforth be Provided With Their Portraits

  When a convict is discharged form the Folsom Prison hereafter his portrait and record will be in the possession of Chief of Police DREW, as Warden AULL has consented to furnish them. A better plan would be for the Warden to notify the police here when discharged convicts are put upon the cars, so that the officers may be able to identify the men. Unless the photographs are taken at the time the men are released, it will in many cases be difficult, if not impossible to identify the men, as prison life works great changes in them.

  There can be no doubt that most of the crimes committed here are the work of ex-convicts, and it certainly would be a great aid to the police to be able to identify each discharged prisoner that stops over here.

 

               THE WILY CHINEE

It Costs Ah Chung Fifty Dollars to Give Opium to a Prisoner.

  In the Police Court yesterday Ah CHUNG, a Chinaman who was caught in the act of giving a member of the chain-gang some opium, was ordered to pay a fine of $50, or in default to serve twenty-five days in jail.

  Joe WALCH was convicted of disturbing the peace of Charles YATES, and will be sentenced to-day. Yates, against whom a counter charge had been filed by Walch, was discharged.

  M.E. FAGG was fined $5 for disturbing the peace of W.F. KUHNIE.

  The cases of J. ROCKEY, charged with petit larceny, and Ling KEE, charged with embezzlement, were dismissed.

  Ed. Emerson was fined $30 for disturbing the peace on Fourth of July night, and Joe FARREN was taxed $5 fir a similar offense.

 

               Installation of Officers

 District Deputy Grand Councilor A. SCHOEMAKER installed the officers of Sacramento Council, No. 96, O.C.F., on Wednesday evening. The hall was well filled by members of the order and friends. An interesting programme, consisting of recitations and instrumental music was well rendered, after which those who desired remained to enjoy a dance.

  On Wednesday evening the Olive Branch Ladies’ Benevolent Society held an installation and entertainment at Pioneer Hall. The programme consisted of songs by Henry and Charles BALZ, Mrs. WICKWIER and Mrs. OCHNER, a piano solo by Miss Eva EVANS, and recitations, etc., by Dr. CURTIS, who also sang “Robinson Crusoe.”

  District Deputy Grand Master William KRAUSE, of District No. 42, installed the following officers of Schiller Lodge, No. 105, I.O.O.F., on Tuesday evening; G.KORTSTEIN, M.G.; Wm. DAVIS, V.G.; Benj. _______, R. Sec.; M. GRAF, Treasurer; P. NEUMANN, Warden; John LINDENMEYER, Con.; Jacob KEIPER, In. G.; B.H. CHAPPMANN, Out. G.; George NEUMANN, R.S.N.G.; John BOLZE, L.S.N.G.; F. STRAUB, R.S.V.G., S. WILD, L.S.V.G.; R. REUTER, R.S.S., T. JERGENS, L.S.S.

 

               In Court Again

  James RUTHERFORD filed papers in the County Clerk’s office yesterday in a suit for divorce from his wife, Louisa. He charges her with desertion. Recently the wife instituted suit for divorce from Rutherford on the ground of cruelty, but when the case came on for trial she could not produce the testimony necessary, and he was granted a non-suit.

 

               Fire on the Riverside Road

  While N. MENKE and a friend were driving on the Riverside road last evening they saw a fire in a house about a mile this side of Oak Hall. They hitched their horse and went to the place and assisted in extinguishing the flames before they gained much headway.

BARTON gave his own age as 29 and England as his nativity. McCORMACK says he is glad to be rid of the woman, and as this disposition is agreeable to her new husband the feud between the men may be regarded as at an end.
