". There should have been, according to
■the decision of the citizens' committee of
the Half-million Club, a. delegation from
: San Francisco in Sacramento last night.
Too much business in the bands'.of the
committee prevented, such a delegation
making the trip. As a result the com
mittee of citizens of Sacramento wired the
Half-million Club that the mass meeting
had been, postponed until to-night and
requested that speakers be sent to address
the public, of the capital city this evening.
The committee on promotion of the Half: '
million Club was even unable to reply
favorably to this request, so it is more
than likely ■ that' Sacramento's mass

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1895.
WATT'S PLACE VACANT.
The People's Bank Directors
PRESENTED ANOTHER BILL.
Depositors Talk of Suing- "Receiver
Sheehan and His Bonds
The board of directors of the People's
Home Savings Bank held a meeting yes
terday afternoon, at which Directors J. W.
Coleman, S. K. Thornton, T. S. Williams,
I. L. Merrill and George Stone were pres
ent. Directors J. C. Johnson and Rolla V.
Watt were absent.
Director Williams submitted a long type
written report on his investigation of the
methods adopted by Receiver Sheehan and
Attorney AVatt in managing the securities
of the bank in the southern part of the
State. The report was adopted.
Mr. Watt sent a bill for $1250 to the direc
tors for services rendered as attorney for
the bank. These services were enumera
ted as preparing and entering decree in the
case of the People's Bank against the Pa
cific Bank $1000, counsel in the case of
Wolcott against the Pacific Bank $100, and
examination and report on guarantees of
Los Angeles Consolidated Railway Com
pany bonds $150.
A warm discussion followed the reading
of the bill between Directors Thornton and
Coleman, who contended, respectively, for
and against the payment of the bill. Mr.
Thornton desired that Mr. Watt should be
invited to attend the meeting of the board
and explain the bill more in detail. Stren
uous objection was made to this by all the
rest of the board in chorus, and a motion
was made and carried that Mr. Watt be
discharged as attorney for the People's
The written resignation of Rolla V.
Watt, brother of the deposed attorney, was
received and accepted by the directors.
A meeting of the executive committee,
representing the depositors of the People's
Bank, was held yesterday evening. It was
decided that the committee should request
the attorneys of the California Safe Deposit
and Trust Company to bring suit against
Receiver Sheehan and his bondsmen for
the recovery of $17,000 which Mr. Sheehan
has paid for assistants and attorneys' fees
since he was appointed.
IF NOT THERE, THEN HERE.
Should Sacramento Decline
the Local Grand Jury
Gagan and the Senators Want to In
vestigate the Combine— Dutchy's
Encounter With Smith.
If the Sacramento Grand Jury does not
investigate the senatorial combine and the
charges of crookedness which have been
made the Grand Jury of this city will take
the matter up.
William Gagan, the foreman of the Grand
Jury of this city, was anxious to begin an
investigation here. Appointments were
made to meet him by persons who were
supposed to be able to give information,
but the appointments were not kept. Then
it was urged that action by the Grand Jury
here might interfere with the steps being
taken by the Grand Jury in Sacramento.
Last week when H. M. La Rue, foreman
of the Sacramento Grand Jury, was in
town, he dined with W. H. Gagan one
evening', and the matter of the investiga
tion was discussed at length.
There is a strong belief among the mem
bers of the local and of the Sacramento
body that the combine was in existence,
but there had been great difficulty in secur
ing any definite legal proof which would
justify an indictment.
'•Young Dutchy's" statement to the press
was much stronger than that made in the
oifice of W. W. Foote.
In speaking of the statement then made
11. M. La Rue said that Young Dutchy
declared that he wouTd only tell the de
tails when summoned before the Grand
Jury in Sacramento, and he demanded ex
pense money in advance. Mr. La Rue
was not anxious to make any advance on
such an uncertain contingency. Now that
"Young Dutchy's'' statement has been
made public it is quite likely that he may
•be summoned to the capital to repeat
undsr oath what he has told the newspaper
As a result of his statements, so the story
goes, "Young Dutchy" got into an en
counter in front of the Lick House yester
day which did not end altogether credit
ably to his pugilistic reputation.
From those who should be in a position
to know of the doings of the "combine"
comes nothing but a burst of general de
nial of Hansted 's statements. It is guard
edly admitted that there might have been
certain feminine influences used in the
matter of the pilot bill, the Consolidated
Charities bill and the scalpers' bill, but no
ooe will take the onus of responsibility for
definite statement save Hansted, who is
being generally denounced.
After his broad statements published in
the Call it was wondered among his own
set what Hansted would do or say
next. The personal opinions of Han
sted's friends as to his statements were any
thing but complimentary.
In one of his statements Hansted is
credited with saying that he was asked if
he "wanted his money with Senator
Linder's or separate."
Senator Linder was seen last night and
So far as I am concerned I really know noth
ing about Hansted, nor did I ever have any
dealings with him beyond those of an ordinary
acquaintance. I met him in Sacramento with
people I know, and treated him politely. That
is all I know. As to the pilot or any other bill,
I can only say that I never gold my vote in my
life, although I may have voted in a line not
quite consistent with my ideas in order to
oblige a colleague. As to money in the last
Legislature, 1 saw none.
When I came to Ban Francisco I received a
letter from this man Hansted asking me to in
tercede in his favor in order to hasten the pay
ment of an alleged debt due him for services
In the Senatorial contest. I declined to inter
fere and received a second letter containing a
very definite threat. The using of my name
in his alleged confession is, I presume, the re
sult of his threat. Further than this I know
nothing about either Hansted or his lobby
schemes. I was in no combine nor did I know
that any existed.
E. A. Phillips, who, Hansted intimates,
brought up $7000 to influence , negative leg
islation in the pilot bill, said:
I have nothing more to say other than that
when I have any testimony to give I will give
it to the Sacramento or any other Grand Jury
before whom I am summoned to appear. Katur
ally, I believe the matter will be sifted to the
bottom, and that in all probability all the men
mentioned in connection with the alleged com
bine, will be subpenaed to appear in Sacra
mento. Then the truth will probably be told,
but as I said before the pilots put up not a cent
for any kind of legislation whatever.
When the last story of Hansted's impli
cating Senator Linder was made current it
aroused no little ire among the Senator's
friends. According to report Ed Smith,
an ex-Assembly clerk, met Hansted in
front of the Lick House yesterday, and re
monstrated against the use by Hansted of
Linder's name. One word led to another,
and Smith, it is stated, promptly punched
Hansted, knocking him down and kicking
him after hewas down. Hansted is an ex
prizerighter, but is said to have been
badly worsted in the row.
In speaking of the trouble afterward
Smith, who is a strong friend of Senator
Linder, is credited with saying, "I am not
a coward, but when I had "him down I did
kick him, and I am glad of it."
Neither Hansted nor Smith were to be
found at their homes last night, nor had
any of their habitual haunts known them
up to a late hour last night.
Mike Smith, at whose saloon a meeting
between Senator Seymour and Hansted
was said to have been arranged, said, "I
am tired of being mixed up in that man
Hansted's rows and tired of being called
his particular friend. I know him only
casually and have no business relations
with him whatever."
CONGRESSMAN JOY COMING
He Will Be the Guest of the
Union League Club in
In Early Fall He Will Wed the Widow
of the Late Dr. Washing
Congressman Charles F. Joy, a promi
nent attorney, who will represent the
Eleventh District of Missouri, which is the
city of St. Louis, in the next Congress, is
on his way west and will reach this city
Mr. Joy is a brother of Edwin W. Joy of
this city, and has the proud distinction of
being the only Republican who has ever
been elected to Congress from that Demo
cratic stronghold, St. Louis. He was de
clared elected at the election before the
last by a majority of about seventy, but his
seat was contested by J. J. O'Neill, in
whose favor the contest was decided by a
Democratic House. Mr. Joy's political
friends and admirers secured his renomi
nation, and he was elected by a majority
that no contest will disturb.
In view of the political prominence Mr.
Joy has attained the Union League Club
has decided to make him its guest during
his stay in this city, and on his arrival will
escort him to its rooms. He will be given
an informal luncheon, and at a later date
he will be invited to a dinner to be given
in his honor by the club.
His visit to this city, the second in five
years, will be of two weeks duration and
one of pleasure.
The Union League Club may think that
it will monopolize the time of the visitor,
but in this it will find itself mistaken, for
there is at the Occidental Hotel a little
widow who is anxiously awaiting the arri
val of the train that carries him hither.
.She is petite, with hair that is snow
white, and is. inclined a little to stoutness,
but is one of the most brilliant conversa
tionalists and most pleasant little ladies
San Francisco has ever known. She is the
widow of the late Dr. Washington Ryer,
and in the fall she will become the bride of
In 1888 the lady, who was Miss Elizabeth
Ina Grant, of Boston, Mass., accompanied
her father to Santa Barbara, and he being
well pleased with the locality made it his
home. There Miss Grant met Dr. Wash
ington Ryer, who became a warm friend.
When the young lady, with her parents,
removed from the South to Oakland, Dr.
Ryer followed, and it was not long before
it was announced that the doctor and
Miss Grant were engaged. In 1890 they
were married, but their married life, a
.most happy one, was but of short dura
tion, the doctor being taken away by
death in 1892: Dr. Ryer left to his widow
a handsome fortune in money and prop
erty, some of which has recently been dis
posed of by order of court in the settle
ment of the estate.
Mrs. Rver has been connected with the
Golden Gate Kindergarten Association of
this city, has given much to charity, and it
is said values money only for the pleasure
it can produce to those she deems worthy
ot her charity.
Those who have the pleasure of the
lady's acquaintance say that she is a most
charming dresser and is most companion
able. AVhen Congressman Joy takes her
to his Missouri home there are many who
will sincerely miss her.
The announcement of her engagement
was a surprise to her friends. She left here
on a visit to St. Louis to see some relatives
of her late husband. There she met the
Congressman-elect and it was not long be
fore he won her.
HER LIFE ON THE STAGE.
Mrs. Elizabeth Saunders Will Celebrate
Her Seventy-Sixth Birthday.
Like the pioneers who came to this coast
in quest of gold, and who are narrowing
down in numbers through the ail-smiting
hand of death, the actors and actresses
who worked in early days in order to afford
amusement to the toilers in their "off"
hours are becoming limited in number.
There are a few left, though, and they
are revered and respected by those who
have enjoyed their performances. Among
them is Mrs. Elizabeth Saunders, who to
day will be 76 years of age.
Mrs. Saunders was born in Philadelphia,
and is of histrionic stock. Joseph Jeffer
son, the inimitable Rip Van Winkle, is
her cousin, and other relatives were de
voted to the stage. She early displayed
her capabilities, .and made her debut in
the city of Brotherly Love. Her first ap
pearance here was at the old Metropolitan
Theater in 1852. She arrived here in 1850.
but did not appear upon the stage until
two years later.
She was very popular in her parts at the
Metropolitan, and when Tom Maguire
opened his theater on Washington street
she played there for awhile.
It was during the palmy days of the old
California Theater that Mrs. Saunders
made her chief success, and which was the
foundation of the fame which came to her.
The old stock company, of which John
McCullough was for awhile the head, made
itself famous in histrionic circles. No
better nor brighter company ever per
formed behind the footlights in the United
States. Each member of it was a star in
his or her peculiar line. Among the ladies
were Mrs. Judah, Ellie Wilton and Mrs.
Saunders. Of all the talented female part
of the company Mrs. Saunders is the only
one that is living.
Eight years ago she retired from the
stage and since then has been living in her
quiet home at 504 Capp street.
"Oh," said Mrs. Saunders last evening,
"when I talk of the old days recollections
and reminiscences flow in so thickly upon
me that I get confused. We have never
seen such theatrical days in a dramatic
way in this city since the old California
company drifted apart. The nearest ap
proach to it was the company which Tom
Maguire had in the Baldwin Theater eigh
teen or nineteen years ago."
Mrs. Saunders intends to celebrate her
birthday by keeping open house to her
friends to-day. She has but recently re
covered from an attack of the grip, but she
will be at home to her friends to-day.

being delivered. See it. It's a beauty.

ESCAPED WITH THE CHILD.
While Attorneys Fight the
Su bject of the Battle Is
Exciting: Struggle Over the Posses
sion of Little Ethel
The usual serenity of Judge Coffey's
court was broken by an unseemly and
noisy incident yesterday morning, which
ended in a fight between attorneys, special
officers and bailiffs and the stealing of a
child from the custody and care of the
court. The controversy was over little
Ethel Rynder, over whose guardianship
the belligerents were fighting, legally in
the court and with their fists out in the
The child, according to the story of the
officers of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Children, which is prosecut
ing the case, is the illegitimate daughter
of a man named Brown. She was
left in the care of Mrs. Tobelman
by her mother, and Mrs. Rynder produces
a document to show that the transfer of
the custody of the child was legally made.
Mrs. TobeJman was a Mrs. Rynder, and
the officers of the society say that Tobel
man denies that she was ever married to
him. In view of that fact she was not con
sidered a fit person 10 care for the child,
and as she was living partly upon the
charity of neighbors, a certain Mrs. Kindle
berger brought suit, through the society,
for the guardianship of the child. As a
preliminary to the trial of the case, the
society took charge of the little girl, and
for some time past she has been staying at
a seminary in Oakland.
There were not many people in Judge
Coffey's court when the case opened, but
suddenly with a cry of recognition Mrs.
Tobelman sprang through the doorway
and made across the courtroom for the
girl. Following close behind was her at
torney, John McGlynn, and a crowd of
friends and sympathizers, and regardless
of the Judge's plea for order and decorum
and the admonitions of the bailiff they
gathered around the object of their search
and nearly went into hysterics.
John Finn, the court bailiff, proceeded
under order of the court to throw the
rioters out, and he had proceeded as far as
Mr. McGlynn and Special Officer Wells of
the "society," and was going back to quiet
the woman, when the noise of conflict rose
outside the courtroom door, and he hur
ried out again.
McGlynn and Wells were nutting the
merits of their cases to trial by combat,
and Finn and Deputy Sheriff Usher, who
happened to pass along at the time, joined
in. When they had stopped and looked
around they found that Mrs. Tobelman
had departed and had taken the child with
McGlynn has sued out warrants for the
arrest of the Deputy Sheriffs and
says he intends to prosecute them.
McGlynn says he advised his client
to take the child by force if necessary, as
he believes the society has acted unlaw
fully. Judge Coffey has absolutely de
clined to proceed with a case which has
opened so inauspiciously, and so the case,
when it comes up next Tuesday, will be
heard by Judge Slack.

DISCOVERED GOLD MINES.
Deposits Favorably Reported
On by the State Uni
Samples From the Workings Give
Indications of Perma
J. A. Yerington, a mining man from the
Silver Star district, was in the city yester
day. It was reported that Mr. Yerington
has a bond on the mines of the Douglass
Company, and also on the Brown mine,
for sixty days, and that he was here to
make a sale of new mining property. Mr.
Yerington was very reticent in regard to
booming the proposition in any way,
shape or form at present, for the reason
thst he does not think the time propitious
for any great influx cf people to the camp.
He, however, said in regard to the locality
ana condition of the new works:
This camp was discovered about a year ago
last fall. Kd Brown took up the Hardscrabble
claim, and Grassie & Co. took up five claims on
the extension of the Douglass group. These
claims have been consolidated, together with
the mill and all water rights. The district has
been thoroughly located, and some of the out
side claims show remarkably well.
The Oneida and Jupiter claims are also mak
ing a good showing, some exceedingly rich ore
having been extracted. The general output of
the mines in that district is, however, of lower
grade, although the Hardscrabble shows by
actual measurement 4000 tons of $1)0 ore
which is in reserve.
A mill of five stamps capacity has been
erected by the company's prospectors, and it
has been kept steadily at work since the mid
dle of October. The Hardscrabble mine is
considered to contain enough ore to keep the
mill running steadily for several years. The
extension, the new party claims, has enough
ore to keep the mill running steadily for a year,
and along the main lode ore is being extracted
for a distance of a mile through to the Grassie
Mr. Yerington possesses samples from
the principal workings showing the char
acter of the ore and large contour maps
showing the position of all the claims and
the geographical position of the district
from the railroad— a distance of eight
miles, the nearest station being Soda
A great many mining men have exam
ined the samples, and the same have also
been submitted to the State University,
and exhaustive reports have been made as
to the character of the lode. The reports
show that the new mines compare very fa
vorably with the celebrated Treadwell
mines in Alaska. The deposits of the pre
cious metal are very similar in their char
acteristics to those of the Alaska mine, and
the results have been arrived at after the
mines have been developed pretty fully, in
some places to the extent of 200 feet. An
encouraging feature that has been observed
is the fact that the newthiines show that
the deposits do not appear of an easily ex
hausted character, but, on the contrary
have every indication of permanency.
Mr. Yerington told one or two amusing
anecdotes of overanxious people desirous
of doing a little gold mining on their own
account. All such attempts have neces
sarily proved futile, as all the claims have
been taken and there is no good to be done
by overcrowding the new camp in its in
Paid for the Chicken.
The case of Demartini against Holbrook to
recover the price of a chicken which the plain
tiff killed at Holbrooks order and upon which
he was subsequently tried for cruelty and ac
quitted was called in Justice Groezinger's
court yesterday. Holbrook decided to pay the
claim and costs, and the case was dismissed.
