of $20,000 to his four daughters, each to re

20 years. Miss Susie reached that age in
January last, and it was said she was

He Thinks He Is the Tall Man
Who Murdered Cornelius
The police, believing that "Hank"
Meyers, the sure-thing gambler, may have
bsen implicated in the murder of Cornelius
Stagg at the Ingleside House, are leaving
no stone unturned to back up that belief.
Yesterday Robert Lee, the colored man
who was in the sitting-room with Stagg on
the night of the murder and had ample
opportunity of studying his appearance
and manner, called at the City Prison yes
terday. Meyers was brought out of his
cell for Lee's inspection. He looked at
him carefully for a minute or two and
listened to his voice while he was talking
to an officer. ,
After Meyers had been returned to his
cell Leu said that in height and build the
prisoner closely resembled the tall man
who fired the fatal shot. The voice was
also the same, and there were other points
that led him to the moral conviction that
Meyers was the man. He had a good look
at the upper part of his head on the nieht
of the murder, and he said then that the
man was of light complexion, light eye
brows and broad forehead. This answers
Yesterday morning a thorough search
was made of the brush near the residence
of Superintendent Hvland of Spring Val
ley W ater Works for the tall man fired at
on Wednesday night by Special Officer
John Daiton, but no trace of the man
could be found.
The police are inclined to think that the
man was some tramp, as the neighborhood
is infested with them, and knowing the
excited condition of the residents he be
came scared when Daiton ordered him to
stop, and ran, fearing trouble.
Chief Crowley has not yet received a re
ply to his dispatch to the Governor, sug
gesting that a reward be offered for the
capture of the murderer.

BRESSE IS VERY RETICENT.
Will Neither Affirm Nor Deny
A Reported Act by
There is a story in connection with the
discovery that Mrs Nettie K. Craven was
in possession of what purports to be a
holographic will made by James G. Fair,
which was made public for the first time
yesterday. It was told by one of the attor
neys forthe heirs. According to him none
other than Governor Budd made the dis
Mrs. Nettie R. Craven spent a good deal
of the time at Sacramento during the re
cent session of the Legislature working in
behalf of the teachers' pension bill. While
in Sacramento on several occasions Mrs.
Craven declared that if the bill became a
law the teachers' pension fund would be
started with a legacy of $50,000 which she
had secured. This statement was repeated
as an argument why the legislators should
vote for the bill. Mrs. Craven interviewed
Governor Budd to see if he would sign the
bill if it should be sent to him, and the
Governor'-s curiosity being aroused by the
legacy statement he proceeded to inter
view Mrs. Craven. She was averse, it is
said, to answer his questions concerning
the legacy, but finally, under his skillful
cross-examination, the fact was developed
that she claimed a legacy from Fair, and
subsequently the lead-pencil will was pro
duced. The attorneys, who in part base
their hopes of breaking the will which
place? the estate in the control of execu
tors not members of Fair's family, declare
that Mrs. Craven is in possession of infor
mation which she withholds from them,
declaring that she will not tell all until she
takes the witness-chair in court.
Another factor in the attempt to break
the will of September 21 is a written state
ment said to have been made by ex-
Senator Fair shortly after that date, though
the document is not now known to be In
existence. Charles Heggarty of the firm
of Knight & Heggarty, "attorneys for
Charles Fair, has faith in the story that
the statement referred to was made."
This statement, if the story be true, pur
ports to have been written by Fair and in
dicated how he wished to divide the
property. It was not in the form of a will,
but intended to serve as the basis around
which a will in all its legal phraseology
might be built. In this statement Fair
declared his intention to divide his prop
erty about equally among his children, and
made provisions for other relatives about
as things appear in the holographic will.
It is said that Senator Fair handed this
paper to J. 8. Angus and Louis C. Bresse
with the remark, '"How would it do to
divide my estate in this way?" and that
they declared that it would bean equitable
Louis G. Bresse, when asked yesterday if
this were true, would neither affirm nor
contradict the story. By his manner he
sought to contradict it, declaring that all
sorts of stories in connection with the Fair
estate were now afloat, but adding that he
could say nothing about the matter. When
pressed lor a direct yes or no answer Mr.
Bresse positively declined to give one, de
ciaring that he would make no statement
concerning the Fair estate or the Fair wills
and referring tb.3 inquirer to the attor
In the office of one of the attorneys for
the heirs who seek to break the will just
placed on record is a lar^e collection of pa
pers in Fair's handwriting. These are of
various sorts, from a telegraphic message
to more pretentious documents. The sig
natures vary. The slant of the admitted
signatures differs. In some instances the
documents are signed "James G. Fair," in
others "J. G. Fair." The letters are not
always made in the game way, and they
differ in size and other respects. In one
instance the middle initial "G" is looped
to the first letter of the surname. In otner
cases it stands without the connecting
There is what might be termed a family
resemblance between the various admit
tedly genuine signatures, but to the casual
glance these differ more from each other
than does the signature to the holographic
from some of them.
The postal authorities began to take a
hand in the case yesterday. Postmaster
McCoppin wrote to Charles Fair asking for
the letter from South Dakota, in which it
was declared that the stolen will would be
returned if a certain sum was sent Mrs.
Chamberlain of that State. Tne postal au
thorities believe that the author of that
letter has been trying to victimize other
people. Charles Heggarty declared that
the letter had not been kept, and there
fore Mr. Fair was unable to assist the
R. H. Warfield of the California, returned
from San Diego last night but maintained
an absolute silence with regard to the third
will and the conversation liad with James
"I shall make no statement," said he,
"either to the press or to any one. What
ever was told me was given* in confidence
and I shall respect that confidence. I shall
make no statement and none of my family
will do so, unless summoned before the
court to tell what we know. I must de
cline to discuss the statements which the
papers have published."
The tenor of Colonel Warfield's remarks
indicated that he could make disclosures
of importance if called upon by the court
to do so, though there was no direct state
ment of that nature.
As a sequel to the discovery of the holo
graphic will the report was current yester
day that the relation of Mrs. Craven to the
School Department would be severed.
H. L. Dodge, the president of the Board
of Education, declared that he knew of no
such contemplated action.
"I suppose the report arose from a re
mark made by myself," said Charles B.
Stone, one of the members of the board.
"I said I did not think Mrs. Craven was
doing the department very much good."
Mr. Stone was asked if he referred to her
connection with the will recently discov
"It was not so much that," replied Mr.
Stone. "I said that she seemed to have
become a politician rather than a teacher.
No steps have been taken looking to her
removal from the department, and I do not
know that any such action is contem
The attorneys for the heirs of the Fair
estate are jubilant. There was a demand
for a will and a will was found. This will
was in the possession of Mrs. Craven and
she pave it to the attorneys. Reuben H.
Lloyd deiares, as a result of his last con
versation with Mrs. Craven, that the will
is undeniably genuine. The attorneys for
the executors under the old will declare
their conviction that it is a forgery.
The attorneys for the heirs have one
point of advantage. If the holographic
will is declared to be genuine and the last
testament of the late Senator, their case is
made. If that will falls they are as well
off, in a legal way, as they were before, for
they can begin where they begun orignally
to contest the will of September 21.
But here another factor comes in. If
that will fails, W. S. Goodfellow, attorney
and esecutor, has a prior will to fail back
upon, and another back of that, and still
another, and how many othera no one but
Mr. Goodfellow himself knows, and he
won't tell, because it would give the other
side an advantage. There may be ten or
twenty or forty ot these wills.
Here Reuben H. Lloyd, the attorney for
the daughters of the dead Senator, claims
vantage. He declares that Fair was a
singular make-up of contrary moods; that
he was constantly making wills, and the
fact that so many wills were made before
September 21 he indicates is good reason
for the assertion that a will, or several of
them, had been made subsequent to that
Attorneys for the heirs say that wills of
a later date than the holographic one
produced by Mrs. Craven may be found,
but they admit that they do not know of
any such wills being in existence. They
are not disposed to regard the reputed
daughter of James G. Fair Jr. and Mary
Ellen Lampman as a possible heir and
seem to fear no contest from that source.
Herbert Clark, who served so many
years with Fair, makes his headquarters
with Angus & Bresse in the Fair building
He disclaims all knowledge of all wills.
"Senator Fair was a very reticent man,"
said he yesterday. "Though I was with
him so many rears he told me nothing of
his affairs, lie was not a man to repose
confidence in anybody."
Mr. Clark disclaimed all knowledge of
any heirs left by James G. Fair Jr. The
child left by Mary Ellen Lampnjan might
have been young Fair's daughter and
might not. He knew nothing of the child
or its mother.
Charles Hcggerty, one of the attorneys
for Charles Fair, is sanguine that the
holographic will is a genuine one and
that the court will so view it. He declares
that there is more doubt about Fair's sig
nature to the will which was stolen from
the office of the County Clerk than there is
about his signature to the Craven will.
Governor Budd is expected here to-mor
row to consult with Knight & Heggerty
and with Charles Fair.
Mrs. James Haskins has frequently been
heard to say that the rumor that Mrs.
Craven was expected to inherit her fortune
was without foundation. She has often

Dainty Dorothy Morton has only one
passion outside her profession, but it takes
up every moment of her spare time. She
is a bicycling fiend, and whenever matinees
and rehearsals do not interfere with her
freedom she hies to Golden Gate Park and
spins along on her wheel with as much
energy as she puts into her part at night.
"Yes, I confess I'm a crank about the
wheel," she said, when seen behind the
scenes of the theater last night. "I am
having a number of the prettiest little
buttons made, stamped with the letters
D. M. C. C— that stands for 'Dorothy
Morton Cycling Club.' You have no idea
how many people have asked to join, but
the club is going to be awfully exclusive.
I thought at first of trying to find out the
Freemasons' initiation rites, but then I de
cided to invent an ordeal myself. Even'
one who joins will have to go through it
before getting a button conferring member
ship to the D. M. C. C."
When asked whether the initiation rites
were to be secret ones Miss Morton replied
that, on the contrary, the more people
present the more fun it would be. "I have
warned all my friends who want to be
come members that they will have to par
take of a banquet, which I shall provide at
my own expense. There will be limburger
cheese, fromage de brie, garlic and onions
and beer. Do yon think any one could
ride successfully after partaking of those
things? I don't, and that is where I ex

and make enough money to star with, be

and Miss Morton, with a serene smile,
walked off in answer to the callboy's sum
Ten minutes later she came back to her
dressing-room, muffled in a white cloak
and carrying a big bunch of red roses.
"My labors are ended for to-night," she
exclaimed, sinking into an armchair and
fanning herself gently with the bouquet.
"I meant every word of what I said about
the cycling club, except that I hardly ex

upon. I shall have to reach that by hard
work; and the cycling is only an amuse

without any music, and said, 'You are not

Miss Morton has only been on the stage
four years, but it seems that four months
were enough to make her determine that
she would always be an actress. She was
singing in a church at St. Louis one day
when llallen and Hart heard her and made
her an offer to join their company. San
Francisco was one of the first places she
visited and at the end of the tour she
found herself so stagestruck that she has
remained in the profession ever since.
This year it is the fashion in the East to
send po-pular actresses diamonds instead
of flowers, and Miss Morton has benefited
by the fad to the extent of a large number
of bracelets, -stars, necklaces and jeweled
watches. "Many of them have come from
people I never saw in my life," she said
when asked about her jewels. "Of course
I feel honored at getting them, but I do
not seem to care so much for diamonds
and things as many people— they are
always the same and one grows tired of
looking at them. These are infinitely pret

JUDGE SANDERSON'S DECREE.
Real Estate Men Say That It
Will Bring Less Than
The property of the Pacific Bank is, to be
sold for the benefit of the creditors of the
People's Home. It is hoped that it will
bring $200,000, but the hope is considered
almost a vain one, for it is appraised by
experts at only $175,000. The fact that it
is to be sold was definitely determined by
Judge Sanderson's decree entered yester
day, and by his appointment of R. P.
Hammond as commissioner to sell the
land and the old building on the corner of
Pine and Sansome streets.
The sale is to be for the purpose of satis
fying the mortgoge which the People's
Home Savings Bank has held over the
Pacific Bank property since January 1,
1893. In the various financial and compli
cated transactions which bound the Peo-
pies' Home Bank to the Pacific Bank, the
Pacific Bank became indebted to the
savings banK to the amount of
$203,666 G4, and interest enough to
increase the debt still further. To se
cure this debt the Pacific Bank executed a
mortgage on its property on the corner of
Sansome and Pine streets to the People's
This mortgage was fought against by the
stockholders of the Pacific- Bank, who saw
the only real security for their own debts
liable to slip from them to the People's
Home creditors, but it was finally "exe
cuted, and now by Judsre Sanderson's de
cision it will be sold to secure the clamor
ous creditors of the People's Home Bank.
The decree of the court amounts to a
foreclosure of this mortgage to satisfy a
claim which with principal and interest
amounts to $21!>,444 20. This of course bars
ail other claims on the property which
may be held by other persons, unless there
should be found a purchaser for more than
the value of the mortgage, but as the out
side figure given as the value by disinter
ested real estate men is not over $200,000
the propects of any one but the People's
Home creditors being benefited bythe sale
seem slim and distant, The property
as it stands is now in the hands of
G. H. Umbsen, well known among the
real estate men of the town, and by order
of court he will continue to act as re
ceiver and to collect all the rents and
profits issuing from the property until it is
sold. In the meantime It. P.'Hanimond
has been appointed as a commissioner to
sell the property, with bonds set at $10,000.
He will have charge of the sale and will
attend to all arrangements. The lot is de
scribed as follows: Commencing at a point
formed by the intersection of the northerly
line of Pine street with the westerly line of
Sansome street, running thence northerly
on westerly line of Sansome street 35 feet
6 inches, thence at right angles westerly
and parallel with said northerly line of
Pine street 87 feet 6 inches, thence at right
angles southerly and parallel with said
westerly line of Sansome street 35 feet 6
inches, thence at right angles easterly and
along said northerly line of Pine street 57
feet 6 inches to the point of beginning.
"The land is the only item that a real
estate agent can take into consideration,"
said Herman Shainwald of Shainwald,
Buckbee & Co., when spoken to about the
matter. "The building is an old one and
the rooms are not suitable for offices. They
are too large and on that account the in
terior will have to be remodeled. There is
no elevator and that again is a drawback.
The land is worth about $4000 a front foot
or in a lump sum land and improvements
are worth about $175,000."
"The property would bring about $190,
--000 or $200,000 in the open market," said
Wendell Baston of Easton, Eldridge & Co.
"The building would have to be modern
ized in order to make it any good for
offices. The value of the asset lies in its
frontage on Sansome and Pine streets. The
corner is a good one, but the People's Home
Savings Bank will do well if they get $200,
--000 for it." __
