DETECTIVES AND TAXES.
A SAN FRANCISCO WIDOW AND HER
LOS ANGELES LOT.
Sho Makes Serious Allegations Against
Two Well-Known Private Detectives.
A Story Which Comes from the North.
"Mrs. C. Rappold, a widow living at
721 Filbert street, applied at police court
two for a warrant yesterday," saya tbe
San Francisco Chronicle, "and told a sad
tale. She said that two and a half
months ago she went to Theodore C.
Metzler, a private detective, to have him
pay the taxes on a lot in Los Angeles,
which she values at $500. The woman
says she offered to give Metzler the
amount necessary to pay the taxes, but
he declined to take it. He said he
wanted tbe deeds, which he would send
to his partner in Los Angeles, Emile
Harris, also a private detective, who
would find out the amount of the taxes
first. Mrs. Rappold returned next day
and gave Met/.ler the deeds, which he
said would be returned in a few days.
"The days grew into weeks and the
weeks into months, and every time the
woman pleaded for the return of her
deeds Met/.ler assured her that it would
be all right; that his partner was in
possession of them. Mrs. Rappold be
came alarmed at the delay and wrote to
the treasurer of Los Angeles to find out
the amount of her taxes, and to her sur
prise she received a reply stating that
Emil Harris had paid the taxes and had
the amount credited to his name.
"Tbe woman claims that Harris and
Metzlcr are endeavoring to defraud her
of her property. She has a daughter 18
years old and a son 17 years old. Her
husband, who died twelve years ago.
was a resident of Los Angeles, where he
owned considerable property, but it was
gradually sold by bis widow, until noth
ing remains today but the lot which
Mrs. Rappold maintains has been taken
possession of by Private Detectives
Metzler and Harris.
"As the courts had adjourned, Mrs.
Rappold could not get a warrant, but
will nrobably do so today."
Mr. Harris could not be found last
night, as the Herald desired to give
his side of the story. Mr. Harris was
at one time captain of police in this
city, anil hi* reputation is such as to
make it probable that Mrs. Rappold
has been misled in her charges.
The Recommendations for the Atten
tion of the Council.
At the regular weekly meeting of the
board of public works, held yesterday
morning, the following report was'
adopted for] presentation to the coun
cil on Monday next: ,

Recommend that the city engineer be
instructed to prepare plans nnd specifi

sent an ordinance of intention to lay

The board suggests that Mr. Van Du
sen's motion to this elf'ect calls for a
new departure in the matter of side
walks, but while it is a fact that wooden
sidewalks were done away with in the
city some years ago, it recognizes the
fact that they might be admissable in
the outlying districts for the purpose of
approaching school buildings, etc.

THE WOMAN'S EXCHANGE.
A Worthy Enterprise Which Merits
A HEBALD reporter yesterday in
spected the exchange at the Woman's
home on Fourth street. This -depart
ment is in charge of Mrs. Josslyn, a
very capable person. The display of
pretty and quaint novelties is some
thing remarkable. A lint- of Indian
goods has been added and ladies who
have not seen the exhibition will be
surprised at the variety and number of
artistic bric-a-brac to be found in the
show cases. These are consigned by
ladies in needy circumstances. The
money obtained for them is turned over
to the consignee, less the per cent,
which is used to maintain the home.
Parties desiring Christinas and New
Years presents should visit the ex
change. Visitors from the east will
find many dainty souvenirs of Southern
California to take back home. The ex
change is a little too far from the main
travel, otherwise many of the artistic
things to be seen there would find a
Complaints Which Were Yesterday
Put on Record.
Y. L. Elliott yesterday commenced
suit against the Los Angeles Gas com
pany to recover $3342.28. Elliott claims
that the gas company contracted for his
services as superintendent at the rate of
$3000 the first year and $3300 the second
year, and that the company has violated
Winifred R. Hunt, widow of the late
Samuel 15. Hunt, applied yesterday to
have N. G. Cochran appointed adminis
trator of the estate of her late husband.
Tho property is valued at something
Nelson Stoddard wants $10,000 dam
ages from the Pacific Railway company,
the result of one of the cars striking his
buggy and throwing the complainant to
the ground, thus injuring his spine.
Prank Errist filed a complaint yester
day with the county clerk, praying
judgment against A. R. Walters on a
note for $320.
He Goes to New York and Returns
William Wolfe is a printer boy who
has mainly grown up in this city.
About a year ago he decided to pay a
visit to the east and see the sights. Al
though Willie has not yet reached the
age when that able instrument, the con
stitution of the United States, says he
knows .enough to vote, he still knows a
thing or two, and when he reached New
York and looked around a little he came
to the conclusion that he could teach
the Gothamites something. Willie will
not tell just how he did it, but somehow
he managed a little speculation so that
the New Yorkers parted with a wad of
$1,800 before they got through with
him. He is in Los Angeles once more
and shows his admiring friends a roll of
greenbacks that would have looked
quite consoling even in boom days.

An Equivalent for Suicide.
Tf we allow our bodily infirmities to make
away with us through neglect, have we such
an Immense moral advantage over the deliber
ate suicide. Scarcely. For example, the deadly
progress of Bright's disease, diabetes, acute
nephltisand gravel is sure—often terribly swift
in the catastrophe. Most people of average in
formation know tha,t this Is the simple, unvar
nished truth in regard to those widely prevalent
maladies. To delay judicious medication is
special y suicidal in such cases. The means of
restraint is to be found in Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters. Give an impetus to the action of the
kidneys with this safe and reliable diuretic, and
the infant complaint is shorn at its birth of the
power for evil. Allow it to grow, and antici
pate the worst. The Bitters, which annihilates
these growing troubles, also eradicates dyspep
sia, rheumatism,malarial nnd liver complaints.
Appetite, sleep and vigor are nlso promoted by

MR. DAN EURNS VISITS GOVERNOR
His Visit Causes Some Pretty Close
Guesses as to Who Will and Who Will
Not Get Soma Fat Appointments.
Mr. "Dan" Hums arrived from San
Fiancisco yesterday and went at once to
the residence of Governor-elect Mark
ham, at Pasadena, where he now is.
Governor Markham has not made any
official statement regarding appoint
ments, yet a Herald reporter, after
having done considerable investigation,
is able to do some guessing, which,
in time, will be found to be about cor
In the first place a good guess would
be that the name of Charles Dunsmoor,
as bank commissioner, will be with
drawn before, thp legislature meets, or if
it is not the nomination will not be
affirmed. The chances are that S. K.
Thornton will capture that sinecure.
Another guess about which there is
hardly any doubt is that C. F. Bassett
will, in March next, succeed W. D.
English as harbor commissioner.
Then there is the nice office of state
printer, in connection with which the
names of the editors of the Times and
Express have been mentioned. It is
not assumed that either of these two
gentlemen have posed as candidates for
it, but whether they liave ornot, neither
of them will get it. As to who will be
put, there the Hekald reporteHteould
make a good guess, but it is a little too
early yet to name the man.
Mr. Burns will remain, probably, for
several days with the goveinor.
A Salesman Stuffs an Order, and the
Result is a Suit.
Henry W. King & Co. have brought
suit against J. T. Sheward, claiming a
balance due on a recent transaction of
The above notice in yesterday's Ex
press gives an erroneous impression.
The transaction occurred nearly two
years ago. The house sent me over
eight hundred dollars' worth of goods in
excess of written instructions. As they
did not have a lot of shirt waists, kilt
suits and jersey suits to the amount of
four hundred dollars 1 ordered, they
sent in place of the above order over
eight hundred dollars' worth of long
pant suits, after I had instructed them
not to send them, and wrote me stating
what they had done,and gave the names
of other houses that dealt in the class of
goods I ordered. They stated if I could
not use the long pant suits 1 could re
turn them, which I did. They claim
they afterwards sold the lot for !f()Oo,and
are now attempting to collect the differ
ence. As 1 have all the correspondence,
I will have no trouble whatever in gain
ing my ease. It is one of those cases
that all merchants have to contend with,
where an over-zealous employee stuffs
an order to make his sales look large,
and when the goods are returned the
house makes a big kick. Fortunately,
this time I have the salesman's letters.

Mrs. Sophia A. Keyes, the beloved and hon
ored vice-president of the Woman's Christian
Temperance uniouof Southern California, has
gone from among us to her eternal home be
yond. All who knew her, whether slightly or
intimately, were inspired and strengthened by
her wonderful faith, strong courage, sym
pathy with every good work, and zealous de
votion to the cause so uear her heart.
We shall sec he face no more, nor hear from
her dear lips the helpful words save in memory,
but the "daily beauty of her life," now. that
she has left us, will bring heaven closer to our
hearts and lives.
Looking at it from our narrow, human point
of view, we can but poorly spare her, but "God
knows best," and so we will try to show by this
"discipline of pain" a deepened devotion to the
work to which she was so wholly consecrated.
To her relatives, especially to the aged mother
and the daughter, who have been deprived of
her loving care and tenderness, and who will
miss her sweet p esence all through the long
days, our hearts go out ill tender sympathy.
