THE MISSING MAN SAID TO HAVE
Robert Farrell Claims to Have Seen Him
at Tehama—His Letter About the Af
fair-Still His Story Is Doubtful.
H. Jay Hanchette has been seen in
California during the paat week, accord
ing to Robert Farrell, who wrote the
following letter which was received at
the chamber of commerce yesteiday :
"Chico, Cal., Sept. 9, 1891.
"Mv Dear Wiggins : You will be as
much surprised as I was, when I tell
you that I met H. J. Hanchette this
morning. I got on the train this
morning at Tehama to come here,
and the first man I got mv eyes on
was Hanchette. Now, you will think
lam mistaken, but lam not. I know
the man too well; worked with him too
"I went up tohim,Blapped him on the
shoulder and called him by name. All
he would say was that I was mistaken ;
but I know that lam not. In looks he
has not changed a bit. His beard is just
the same, but his clothes are not so good
as they were. He is now wearing
one of the suits he used to wear in Los
Angeles. His actions are the same, but
his voice ia changed, and ia very much
"To one party here he gave h's name
as H. J. Mitchell. At the postoffice this
evening he inquired for letters as John
Blackman. To me he gave the name of
Hamilton. The only thing he would
admit waa that he had a wife and child.
He said he had never heard of the cit}
lof Los Angeles. He said he was going
to the new mines, Pine Nut. in Nevada.
"Now there is no use. I cannot be
mistaken. This is Hanchette; not his
double, nor his ghost, because ghosts
don't smoke cigarettes.
"I leave here Friday for Greenville in
Plumas county. lam traveling for the
Co-opemtive Cigar company of San
Francisco; and iri about three weeks
will be in Pine Nut. My health is about
as usual, but I am considerably shaken
up over meeting Hanchette.
"I am certain there is no mistake in
this. If you care tb answer this direct
at Susanville, Lassen county. Also
send me two or three Los Angeles pa
pers. Have not seen one since I left.
Had a letter from' home yesterday.
Hope thii will find you well.
"I remain, yours truly,
As will be : seen by his letter Fan-ell
is positive that the man he saw on ttwj
train was Hanchette. He knew the
missing man very well, having been
employed on the Herald while Han
chette was city editor.
His letter created considerable excite
ment among those who were made
aware of the information contained in
it, but aiter careful consideration, the
officers and a number of members of the
chamber of commerce are led
to believe that the man whom
Farrell took for Hanchette was
the person encountered by Mrs. Han
chette and others in San Francisco, and
who has come to be known as "Han
ehette's double." '
It is argued that Farrell must have
had some doubts about the man he saw
being Hanchette, or he would not have
taken the slow process of informing his
friends in this city.
A strange feature of the story is that
the man gave three names, it would
seem that a person endeavoring to hide
from his friends, if that was the purpose
of tbe man, would not cause suspicion
to be directed to him by giving three
Hanehette's friends here are hoping
that the story is true and that the miss
ing man is really alive. A dispatch was
sent to officers at Cffico giving the facts
contained in the letter and requesting a
search. No reoly had been received
when this was written.
