SANTA MONICA, Dec. 17.—(Regular
Correspondence.) Daniel Meloy, a far
mer, well known in this city and a resi
dent of Twentieth street, spent last week
at NewhaU. While there Mr. Meloy met
an old friend who had been his comrade
in war times named George A. Smith, a
member of the Soldiers' home out on
furlough, who unfolded to him the re
markable story of his life, which will
goon have a very happy sequel.
In 1847 Smith married a pretty country
girl in the state of Maine. In 1K49 he
was stricken with the prevailing gold
fever and, leaving his wife on the farm,
started for the gold mines of California.
Upon arriving here he prospected for
several years in the Sierra Nevada
mountains without, however, striking |
pay dirt. Letters from home grew few
er and came at longer and longer inter
vals, finally ceasing altogether and then
came news of his wife's death at the old
home place in Maine.
Having no success in the mining busi
ness, Smith embarked ln a whaler and
alternated in leading a seafarer's life
with the fascinating life of the pros
pector for the shining metal until the
war broke out, when he enlisted, serving
his country for five years. At the close
of the war he again adopted the life of
a snllor, spending twenty-five years
aboard ship, during which time he cir
cled the globe many times, visiting al
most every country of both the new and
old world, finally arriving in San Fran
cisco in 1890 on the return trip of his last
gca voyage. Being then seventy-three
years of age and ln poor health, he ap
plied and was admitted to the Soldiers'
home near Santa Monica, where he re
mained several months. The rest and
pood food he received at the home built
him up in such shape that at the end of
four months he wont out on furlough,
working at various occupations and
finally landing in NewhaU, where he has
been In the employ of a man named
Mercer until this past week.
About three months ago he met an old
neighbor from Maim', who informed him
that the information received concern
ing the death of his wife was incorrect,
and that she was still living nnd faith
ful to the husband of her youth, whom
she believed to bo dead. Smith imme
diately wrote to her and in due time re
ceived her reply. Yesterday was pension
day at the homo and Smith received the
means to follow out his intention of
starting for his old home, where he will
greet the wife ho has not seen for forty
eight years. The old man is unable to
explain the unhappy mistake which
caused so much sorrow to both.
He said yesterday: "1 Will start back
to Maine today and if I live till the 4th
of March next I will bo eighty years
old, having lived only two years with
my wife and forty-eight years away

DEATH OF W. O. SWAN
The death of William O. Swan, aged
7G years, occurred this afternoon at 1
o'clock at the home on Grant street.
Asthma, with which he has suffered for
some time, was the immediate cause of
death. The physician called this morn
ing and said that he could live only a
few days longer at best. He died a half
hour later. Deceased was a sea captain,
who came here in 1577, when the town
was the Indiana colony. He was a highly
respected citizen. He leaves two daugh
ters and two sons—Mrs. Annie S. Mar
vin of this city, Mrs. F. D. Buttrick of
Boston, Deputy State Controller W. O.
Swan, jr., and Charles W. Swan of Los
Angeles, who was formerly secretary of
the local opera house company.

A young man claiming to be a brother
of Eugene Howard, on North Moline
avenue, sold a saddle to A. P. January
of East Union street last evening for
$2.C0. The youngster left his horse, a
pretty gray mare, with H. H. Matthay,
on the same street. He promised to come
back for it, but has not yet appeared.
The fact that Eugene Howard has no
brother, together with the young man's
non-appearance, leads to the belief that
the horse was stolen.
A horse belonging to M. E.Wood ran
away this afternoon on Union street as
the owner was getting into the buggy.
Mr. Wood was knocked down and run
over, but not seriously hurt. The horse
ran on. smashing Mr. Shipley's cart and
the rig to which he was attached.

SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY
RIFLED BY EXPERT SAFE CRACK
ERS THURSDAY NIGHT
They Worked the Combination and
Collared $1200 Worth of Cash
CHINO, Dec. 17.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) The Chino postoffice was
robbed last night by expert safe crack
ers. The front door of the postoffice was
opened with a skeleton key and the
safe opened by working the combina
tion. Entrance was evidently gained
through the back window. The robbers
rifled the contents of the safe, taking
$700 worth Of stamps and $300 in cash,
besides over $200 in money belonging to
Postmaster Sleppy and the Bowling
club. A number of valuable papers be
longing to Mr. Sleppy and other parties
were also taken, making the loss a
heavy one. No clue of the robbers has
yet been obtained.
SAN BERNARDINO, Dec. 17.—(Regu
lar Correspondence.) There is a pros
pect that the city will take hold of the
present sewer plant and by
make some use of it. The system, which
was built in 18S8, includes thirteen
streets, which cost in all $72,300.23, com
prising nine miles of sewer, made with
vitrified pipe. Upon this there has beer
paid probably one-third the entire
amount to the contractors. While there
were many claims that the contract was
not carried out according to the speci
fications, and that pipe was put in which
had been condemned by the Inspector,
yet these points did not come up for the
courts to pass upon, and as far as the
legal tribunal is concerned it is the best
system in the world, although the city
trustees refused to accept it on those
grounds and it never has been accepted.
The grounds brought up before the
courts for non-fulfillment of the con
tract by the citizens were the illegality
of the assessments to the property hold-
ers. The city attorney has prepared an
elaborate opinion on the legal status of
the case for presentation to the board
next Tuesday night bearing upon the
question, whether or not the city would
be responsible for the unpaid assess
ments, with interest, in case the system
was accepted at this time and ordinance
passed compelling property holders or
all the streets to connect with it. It is
understood that in his opinion the city
has the right to do so and not render
itself liable for the debts due on the
plant. The need of more sewer connec
tions was shown when the Santa Fe
company, after making connections,
was cut loose from it, on account of legal
complications, and a tract of land se
cured where the company could pip*
their sewage. This has become so sat
urated that it is complained of as a nui
sance that must be abated, and the only
way to abate it is to again connect with
the sewer main.
An object lesson In fumigating for
orange scale and other fruit pests was
shown recently at Ontario. The orch
ard of Col. J. T. Paul was very badly
infested with the scale and when the
horticultural commission began Its sea
son's work this was one of the first at
tended to. After several weeks, to give
animal life opportunity to show itself,
if there was any left under the tent at
the close of the fumigating process, Col.
Paul collected samples of orange leaves
from all over the orchard, from the tops,
middle and bottom of the foliage, seek
ing those also from the most protected
nooks and crannies, and had them ex
amined under the strongest compound
microscopes in use at the Claremont
college. The strictest examination failed
to find a solitary trace of animal life in
any form on the samples. The gas not
only kills every form of Insect life, from
scale to bugs and beetles, but birds
caught under the tent when it Is thrown
over a tree have been killed instantly.
This is an excellent showing for the
horticultural commission and shows it
deserves the commendation given it by
the grand jury, which said: "We regard
this office as entitled to special consid
eration, having 1" charge, as it does, the
protection of the industry paying nearly
three-quarters of the taxes of the coun
