A Search for His Hidden
THE HABITS OF A MISER.
Did He Plant His Money Under
the Trees or Did He Give
It Away ?
On the 28th of July, 1887, Kichard
Jasper died in tbe Sisters' Hospital in
this city leaving no will, and his pro
perty, consisting of a number of mort
gages, was placed in the hands of the
undertakers. During Jasper's lifetime
he had frequently mentioned a brother
and sister residing in Birmingham,
England, and had said that when he died
he wished all his property to go to his
sister as ho was at war with his brother.
Recently these heirs at law have made
an application through the courts for
the property which Jasper left, and the
question how much he left has become an
important matter. According to the Court
records the estate in martgages was
valued at about $8,000, but it is believed
that Jasper was worth some $20,000 or
$25,000 when ho died, and the idea has
possessed the minds of his and
others interested in the case, that at
some point in the vicinity of this city the
bulk of his fortune lies buried. A search
into Jasper's history shows that this sup
position has a reasonable foundation for
all who ever knew Jasper say that he
was miserly in the extreme, and lived
the ideal life of the miser of tradition.
So far as possible his history and habits
have been traced back through a period
of several years in the hope that some
clue might be found whereby the money
he had might be located.
Of his movements during these years is
as follows: Prior to 1874 or '75 Jasper
lived in Solano county, and when he left
there for Los Angeles he sold his land,
160 acres, for a considerable amount,
just how much has not been ascertained.
People who knew him in that part of the
country state that he was eccentric and
never talked of his business affairs.
When he changed his place of residence
he did not change his habits, for he was
regarded by everyone as a miser, and
some are certain that ho distrusted banks
to such an extent that he never deposit
ed his money with them, preferring to
bury it in the earth.
it was probably in 1875 that be walked
into a real estate agent's office
in this city and ask.-d him if
he had any good land for sale.
The agent replied that he had and took
him to look at the land, situated at the
foot of South Main street, about six
miles from the heart of the city. Jasper
purchased thirty or thirty-live acres of
this tract paying $65 per acre for some,
$50 and $45 for the rest, according to
situation. To the agent's Surprise, after
concluding the bargain, Jasper paid cash
down for the land. He pulled the money
out of his pocket carelessly and the agent
could not say how much more he had.
Jasper resold this land for several times
the amount which he paid for it, but he
resided on it until 1884 or 1885. During
his residence on his ranch he boarded
with Mrs. Waldron, who lived opposite,
and slept in his barn with his
horses. Mrs. Waldron thought him
the most peculiar man she
ever saw. He made several trips to
Solano county to collect payments due
on the land he had sold there. Jasper
never left his ranch to set money, and
on one occasion Mrs. Waldron wanted
$500. The bank was closed and she told
Jasper of her predicament. He told her
not to mind tbat, he would get the money
for her. He went over to his ranch and
returned in a few minutes with the
money. Another neighbor thought Jas
per a peculiar mac. He knew that Jas
per had foreclosed a mortgage on a ranch
at Downey, and after living there for a
while that he had returned to his Main
street ranch. His impression was that
Jasper was worth a considerable sum of
money, and that he always kept it
A Deputy County Clerk knew Jasper
at this time, and his sister-in-law was
about the only woman he would do any
thing for. He had been known to hitch
up his horse and drive her into town
with her eggs for the market. As a
general rule Jasper was
AFRAID OF WOMEN, I
And he had been known to have hidden i
from them. On one occasion he crawled
under some bushes and was pulled out.
Another peculiarity he possessed was to
lock his stable door when strangers
appeared so as to prevent an interview. ,
In 1883 he loaned $2,000 to a man named
Strump, but he did not take the money
from a bank.
In 1884 or '5, as before stated, he dis
posed of his ranch and came into town.
He had sold his horses at private sale
and obtained permission from Mr. John
C. Bell to sleep in a little room in a shed
in a corrall, on Los Angeles street, for
tho use of which he paid $4 per month.
YVhile living here he always did his own
cooking, and his habits were none of the
cleanest. He lived in this room
about a year and employees
about the place noticed that he frequently
dug about the corrall, but they never
knew what he was digging for.
In the .fall of 1885 he took lodging at
Mrs. Olsen's lodging-house on San Fer
nando street, and in 1886 he went to
Europe. Shortly after his return he ap
peared to be sick, but he would eat
nothing but what he had cooked himself.
Mrs. Olsen was of the opinion that he
was too stingy to allow himself a suf
ficiency of nourishment, and she fre-
Suently saw him eating dry bread washed
own by a cup of water. She thought
he was a most peculiar man. and he
seemed to have no faith in banks as
places of depositing money for safety.
At one time he buried $480 in a pile of
loose dirt that had been thrown out of a
hole, and showed Mr. Olsen where he
BURIED A CAN
Containing $440. Mr. Olson, on filling
the hole, found the can, and on opening
it found that there was $460 in the can.
Of this $20 was taken for rent and the
rest Mr. Olsen returned to Jasper.
While he was sick at Mrs. Olsen's lodg
ing house Mrs. Dr. Wilkins examined
him and, finding that he was in the last
stages of consumption, advised him to
go the Sisters' Hospital. He entered the
, hospital on July sth, 1887, and the Sis
ter Superior says that he had $400 when
he first came there. He afterward took
the money away. Dr. Kannon, who at
tended him at the hospital, stales that
Jasper told him that he had a brother
and sister in England, and had advised
him before he died to send for a lawyer,
but Jasper refused. Before his death Dr.
Kannon had seen him digging with
his hands under a certain tree
opposite the Sisters' Hospital and
on another occasion he had caught
Jasper in the act of covering up some
thing in the mud at this particular place.
Another favorite haunt of his was under
three large pepper trees on Beaudry ave
nue, and at the corner of this and an
unnamed street. He frequently staid in
the vicinity of these trees for a day at
a time, though he was never observed to
be digging there.
These facts were sufficient to warrant
the supposition that Jasper had buried
the proceeds of the sale of his ranches,
especially as his habits precluded the
idea that he had spent the money for
living. The fact that the mortgages he
possessed only accounted for $8000, also
pointed to the fact that the balance of his
money must have been hidden away,
especially as no bank could be found
that he had ever visited. The parties
into whose hands the matter was placed
have been trying to find the money for
sometime past. The corrall has been
dug over, the trees that he frequented
have been dug under and no place that
he has been traced to has been missed in
tie search. So far, the money has not
come to light and there is a bare possi
bility that he may have placed it in
charge of some one. It was known that
quite a number of parties hung around
him and some were quite familiar with
him. This branch of the case is being
looked into now and the result will
shortly be known.
AT THE SEA.
Notes from Santa flonlca on a
As soon as it became evident that yes
terday was to be another hot day in
town a rush was made for the railroad
depots and tickets for the seaside resorts
were in great demand. Fully 3000 per
sons provided themselves with coupons
for Santa Monica and the seating capacity
of the early trains was taxed to the ut
most. When the ocean was reached it
was found that the other extreme was
there for not only was it not hot but a
fog prevailed and made the atmosphere
absolutely cool. This did not, however,
deter those who rejoice in a dip from
thus indulging and the rush on the vari
ous bathing houses was as great as could
be comfortably handled. During the
afternoon the sun struggled hard to
make his appearance but all in vain, for
although now and then one of his
glittering shafts pierced to moths r
earth he was compelled to hide
his majesty behind the lowering
clouds that covered the firmament.
A good deal of interest was taken in the
water performance given by the Silbons
in the plunge bath, and these gentle
men showed themselves to be as clever
in the water as they are on the trapeze.
A fine new boat has been placed on the
beach, and this afforded a good deal of
amusement to tbe natatorial experts, j
who rowed out into the deep water and I
then took a header and swam to shore.
Attention was called in these columns
some time ago to the then bad and dusty
condition of the land and walks about
the Southern Pacific depot, and the hint
has evidently been taken, for cinder bal
last is being placed all about, and makes
an excellent roadway.

DIED~FROM HIS BURNS.
The Inquest on tlic JCody of Uott
An inquest was held on the body of
Gottlieb Grossman, who died at the Po
lice Station at 5 o'clock yesterday morn
ing from the effects of the burning he
received during the fire at his residence,
No. 420 Buena Vista street, on Saturday
night. , .
A number of witnesses were examined,
but nothing was shown as to the origin
ot the tire beyond the fact that two empty
coal oil cans were found on the premises
after the fire, one of which had a hole in
it. H. C. O'Bannon and John Craig,
who were on the opposite side of the
street, G. H. Crane, who roomed next
door, and B. W. Hammett, who was on
Bellevue avenue, each testified as to
hearing the explosion, and almost im
mediately after seeing the sides of the
housafall out, revealing a massof flame
within. Of these Hammett alone saw the
man Grossman, who was sitting on the
doorstep of the next house, horribiy
burnt. Officer Jeffries testified to seeing
the deceased come out of the burning
house and fall down on the sidewalk in
front. The witness was the only one
who saw the coil-oil cans.
Dr. J.J. Choate testified to having at
tended Grossman at the station. De
ceased had told bira that feeling tired he
had lain down and fallen asleep. Upon
waking he was enveloped in flames and
he at once ran ont through the fire. He
said he did not know how the fire
started. He died from the effect of the
burns. Deceased was a German about
46 years old and married. As deceased
was the only occupant of tbe house at
the time, it'will never be known as to
how it originated.
How a Party Trailed a Big
ANOTHER * MISSING YOI|TH.
The Mysterious Disappearance of
Gns Sehaeffer—Foul Play
On the sth of last July a merry party
consisting of Messrs. R. A. Irving, Ed.
Melius, J. Riley and Andy Campbell,
left town for a hunting and fishing tour
in the mountains. They returned last
week with the usual amount of adven-
I tures to narrate, and the following is a
recital of the experiences of Mr. Irving
as narrated by him to a Herald man
"We had a two-horse team well laden
with provisions, blankets, rifles and shot
guns and at the wheels trotted a $30©
brace of bloodhounds, the property of
Ed. Melius. We headed over to the
Temescal, where we camped for a time
to enjoy the shooting, for there are mil
lions of quails there and in addition to
this pastime we went deer hunting and
had the good luck to bring down two
tine bucks at one outing. We then went
over to Coldwater Canon and fonnd
superb fishing. The streams are full
of magnificent speckled trout and we
bad a royal time of it fcr
Borne days I can tell you. There is one
thing though that I think ought to b*
brought before the notice of the Fieh
Commissioners and that is the practice
that is carried on up there of throwing
dynamite in the water for the sake ol
killing the trout. It is carried on openly,
and all sportsmen will agree that it is dis
graceful, for the trout is too good a fish to
be killed off in that way. But I want to
tell you of our greatest experience, and
A BEAR STORY,
Every word of which I will vouch for as
being tbe truth. After leaving Coldwater
we crossed over into Horsethief Canon,
and there we saw bear tracks leading up
the mountain side. We decided to trail
him down and Ed. Melius went ahead
with the dogs, Riley took one side of the
ravine, I the other and Campbell climbed
up to the top of the ridge. I was creep
ing cautiously along, for the brush is
rather thick thereabouts, and
suddenly my heart went into
my mouth, for about Eeventy-five yards
ahead I saw his bearship leisurely lolling
with his back toward me. Only those
who have enjoyed the experience of
bear-hunting can realize how I felt at
the introduction, but I determined to
bring him down, if possible; so I raised
my Winchester to my shoulder and fired.
Either my aim was not true, or else he
moved just at the moment I shot, for tbe
ball only struck him in the leg, and as
he looked angrily ronnd I unloaded and
gave him a second dose. He winced a
little, but did not seem to be badly hurt,
and as he sprang to his feet I saw that I
bad an ugly customer to deal with, for
he must have weighed about 1,000
pounds. He started toward me, and as
he did so I involuntarily dropped my
rifle and commenced to climb up an
adjacent live-oak tree. When 1 looked
down again the bloodhounds were just
on their way to him, and then I saw him
throw out one paw, and one of the dogs
fell back dead, completely ripped
open. The other boys began to close
in, and Mr. Bruin, who had doubtless
heard that discretion was the better
part of valor decided not to stay and
meet such a majority. In less than a
minute afterward he was half way up
the mountain side and although a regular
volley of bullets followed him by way of
salute he was evidently not hurt much
for he went lumbering off at a lively pace
after he reached the plateau and was
soon lost to sight. Beyoad this little ad
venture I do not think that there is any
thing else in our trip worth chronicling
unless it is that we killed four fine deer
one morning near the Santa Margarita.
The trip throughout was a delightful one
and for those who need rest and recrea
tion I know no cheaper nor more pleas
ant method of putting in the time than
the inaugurating of an excursion party
such as ours."
A MISSING YOUTH.
si run iii' Disappearance ol lius
About six weeks ago the overland
train conveyed into the city a youth
named Gus Schaeffer, who had pur
chased in Illinois a ticket for Los An
geles, as he had some relations living
here. He went to their residence on
South Maple street and took up his
abode with them while he made arrange
ments for establishing himself in some
business house. He passed his time
Sdown town, and one morning about
three weeks ago he left in the usual
manner, intending evidently to return
before night. But strange to say, he has
not been heard from since, and it is
feared that he may have possibly met
with foul play. It is evident tbat he had
no intention of absenting himself, as he
had but very little money with him at
the time, and did noteven take a change
of linen. His relations are searching
the city for information concerning his
whereabouts, but so far nothing definite
can be obtained.
A Pleasant Social.
The twentieth anniversary of the mar
riage of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Field took
place at the corner of Main and Jefferson
streets in the Field block Saturday even
ing. Seventy relatives and friends were
present. The groom was attired in his
wedding suit made twenty years ago. A
sample of wedding cake made by Mrs.
Field twenty years ago was exhibited.
Dancing and social converse occupied the
: evening, after which a bountiful colla
tion was served.
