willfully, knowingly, unlawfully and mali- j
ciously intending to injure and impeach the j

of affiant, did write and cause to be written I

in the words following, to wit:

Further, at said time and place said defen

The said false and defamatory article meaning,

undertaker in said City and County, had paid
to affiant the sum of $800, which he had ex

the said accused may be brought before a
magistrate and dealt with according to iaw.
The four defendants had been apprised
of Dr. Levingston'B intention by an article
in yesterdays Call, and accompanied by
one of their attorneys, Charles W. Reed",
they called at the Central police station
and surrendered themselves. Attorney
Reed had previously obtained an order
from Judge Joachimsen for the release of
Dr. Dille on his own recognizance, and the
three others had presented their bonds of
$.tOO each to the Judge and received orders
of discharge. About a dozen prominent
citizens had gathered in the Mayor's oflice
eacli eager to go on their bonds.
Their bondsmen were as follows: W. H.
Little and M. C. Hawks for Mr. Truman;
Mayor Sutro and Rollo V. Watt for Mr.
Gaden, and Mark Strouse and Charles E.
Eaton for Mr. Dexter.
The formality of taking the four defend
ants to the City Prison and registering
their names was gone through and then
The case was set for this morning. Reel
B. Terry will appear as special counsel for
the prosecution on behalf of Dr. Leving
ston, and Attorneys Gavin McNab and
C. N\ Reed will represent the defendants.
Mr. Gaden, in speaking of the arrest,
said that it was a farce. The statements
in the article complained of were made
under the advice of their attorneys, and
they could have been supplemented by
"We are determined to purify municipal
affairs," said Mr. (laden, ''and" this is only
the beginning. We are prepared to go to

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 1895.
DEATH DEEPENS MYSTERY.
Ex-Senator Buck Dies Without
a Word or a Gleam of
THE TRAGIC STORY IS UNTOLD.
Miss Harrlngrton's Body Laid Away
With No Clew to the Murderer
or His Motive.
There were two happenings yesterday
which were related to the strange and
awful Harrington tragedy, and they were
the reverse of "developments."
Ex-Senator Leonard W. Buck, one of the
highly respected, well-known and influen
tial citizens of the State, whose indirect
and mysterious connection with the re
markable story of crime has been told from
hour to hour and from day to day in a
manner that has enlarged the mystery,
died at 5 o'clock yesterday morning in Oak
land as unconscious as he had lain since
Saturday evening. He spoke not a word
Four hours later the mangled and
burned remains of Miss Ellen Harrington
were taken from the undertaking parlors
where they rested and placed in the vault
at Holy Cross Cemetery, where they will
await arrangements for the funeral. The
circumstances of the case do not make it
likely that the body will be disturbed in its
casket until it is finally laid away in a Sac
The story of the crime, which must be a
strange and thrilling one, is as deep a
secret as ever. Nothing developed yester
day which gave a promise that it would
ever be told. As far as is discovered,
nothing was brought to light which
gave a clew to the murderer or
which even suggested a motive for the des
perate butchery. As a mystery the case has
few parallels. If Captain Lees and the de
tectives working on the case had any infor
mation which warranted a suspicion of any
one, or which afforded a possible theory
which suggested an adequate motive, they
kept it closely to themselves. Nothing of
the sort developed elsewhere.
Two incidental facts were clearly estab
lished by investigation yesterday. Both
made cruel and unjust suspicions' relating
to the dead woman's character. It is plain
that she died as she had lived— a woman
with a clean heart and a clean life.
Since the hour of the discovery of the
crime it has been stated and believed, even
by the police, that Miss Harrington was
partially undressed when she was killed.
It has been assumed that her assailant,
whether he surprised her or not, was in
her apartments while she was making her
The fragments of burned clothing which
were taken to the Morgue with the body
were examined yesterday for the first time,
and by a Call reporter. They gave posi
tive proof that when Miss Harrington was
killed and her clothing tired in an effort to
destroy traces and evidence of the crime
she was fully dressed and as she
had been during the entire forenoon.
Mrs. Kellogg, who saw her one hour
before her death, describes her as
dressed in a light-blue sateen house wrap
per. Nearly all her clothing that lay
about the upper part of her body was
burned in the flames, but the portions of
all her garments upon which her body
lay were naturally preserved from the lire.
Of the sateen wrapper described before
by Mrs. Kellogg the back of the waist and
a strip of the back part of the skirt for
nearly its entire length is preserved, show
ing conclusively that she had it on when
she fell where her burned body was found.
Exactly similar evidence concerning all
the rest of her clothing is preserved and it
The testimony of Dr. Barrett, who per
formed a careful autopsy, also contradicts
the theory of the police, which has been
I repeated a good deal, that the murderer
used two weapons, one a heavy, blunt in
strument, with which the lacerated wounds
and fractures were made, and another a
heavy, sharp cutting instrument. Dr.
Barrett says that there were no wounds
which were cute at all.
The murderer struck this victim eight
i powerful blows with some blunt and heavy
I weapon. Six of them reached her skull
I and two her lower jaw. Miss Harrington
was not only a woman of exceptional size,
vigor and health, for one of her age, but
Dr. Barrett testifies that her skull was ab
Blows with a heavy weapon would be
needed to fracture and crush an ordinary
skull in the manner shown by the autop
sy, and the wounds give evidence that the
murderous attack was desperate as well as
I deadly. It is not strange that there was no
outcry heard, for any one of the six blows
dealt would have knocked any human
The hardest blow, whether the first or
the second one, struck the victim on the
side of the head about an inch and a half
above the right ear, producing an irregular
fracture of the skull bone three inches in
diameter. This blow was delivered up
ward in relation to the head, slb is shown
by the particles of bone that were driven in
that direction. Another blow landed a little
behind the right ear and produced a frac
ture, and another one struck just in front
of the right ear. On the left side of the
head were a lacerated wound and a frac
ture that extended around the base of the
skull and there met the fractures from the
other side. There were two lacerated
wounds over the right eye, but no frac
tures. The lower jaw was fractured near
"The wounds were apparently all made
with the same instrument," said Dr. Bar
rett yesterday, "and were distinctively
lacerated wounds. There was more or less
contusion or bruising of the scalp about all
of the wounds. No knife could nave pro
duced a fracture. The weapon must have
been a blunt and heavy one and the blows
delivered with great force. I have never
saen such fractures of a skull except as the
result of a streetcar accident."
Things are very quiet up in the two
story-and-basement flat at 1018 Ellis street
now. No crowds gather outside, though
people stop frequently to look with awe
and wonder at the first-class but common
place bunch of flats with distinguished
stairs up to the two front doors.
The upper flat, which was lately and for
five years the dead woman's, is in posses
sion of the legatee, Mrs. Josephine Jack
son, and her brother-in-law and sister, Mr.
and Mrs. Rae of Sacramento. They have
many friends who call and they are not
especially thick with the other tenants.
A statement yesterday by Mrs." Crouse,
who saw the tramp, disposes of the tramp
theory, if her confident fixing of the time
when the nomad called at her basement
door and then went up the front steps is
correct. She says that the tramp called
at fully 1 o'clock, and also that he did not
look particularly vicious. She is the
woman, too, who has seen the man and
the buggy most, aud she says that it is two
or three weeks since she saw Mr. Buck
The arrangements for taking Miss Har
rington's remains to the vault in Holy
Cross Cemetery from Porter's undertaking
establishment had been kept secret and no
crowd was on hand. There was no cere
mony. The casket was placed in a hearse
and eight friends followed in two carriages.
Those who made the journey were: Mrs.
Josephine Jackson and Mrs. D. W« Rae,
sisters of the deceased: D. W. Rae, Mrs.
Roberts, niece of L. W. Buck: Mr. and
Mrs. Dwver, old acquaintances in Chicago;
Mrs. E. Shotwell and A. P. Knorp, Miss
Harrington's late landlord and his daugh
The funeral has not been arranged, but
will take place in Sacramento at some
There is a brother of Miss Harrington
abroad in the world somewhere ana he
probably does not know of his sister's
death. He is Daniel Harrington, the old
est child of Timothy Harrington, who
brought his family from Prince Edward
Island so many years ago. He is a ship
carpenter and two years ago came here
from Chicago. He worked here five
months, and, not liking California, went
East somewhere and has not been heard of
by his family since.
Captain Jack Harrington was another
brother. He died some years ago. He
was a drillm aster at Camp Douglas once
and served his country elsewhere during
the war. In Miss Harrington's parlor
there hung six large portraits. One was of
Captain Jack, another was of herself, and
the remaining four were honored prelates
of the Catholic church, among whom was
MR. BUCK DEAD.
The Ex-State Senator Passes Away
Without Regaining Con
The death of L. W. Back, which occurred
at dawn yesterday morning, in Oakland,
was made especially sad to his family and
his hosts of friends by the unfortunate con
nection of his name with the Harrington
tragedy. Almost as for his life his family
prayed for at least a brief spell of con
sciousness and ease that would enable him
to tell the story that they wanted him to
tell more strong! y than did the San Fran
But the end came at 5:15 a. m., without
the unfortunate victim of Saturday's acci
dent having spoken a word or having given
a faint sign of recognition to his heart
Tne Coroner held a brief inquest and the
jury gave the following verdict: "The de-

ceased. Leonard William Buck, a native
of New York, aged til years, came to his
death by cerebral hemorrhage, resulting
from a fall from a cart at the corner of
Twelfth and Castro streets, and we find
that the fall was accidental. He died at
929 Adeline street."
The funeral will be held to-morrow at 1
o'clock p. m., from his late residence, at 929
Adeline street, Rev. Dr. Akerly officiating.
The burial will take place under the aus
pices of Naval Commandery No. 19,
Knights Templar of Valleio, of which the
deceased was a member. Interment will
be at Mountain View Cemetery.
Senator L. W. Buck was born in Truxton,
Courtland county, N. V., on July 8, 1834,
and was educated at Honer, N. V., at the
Courtland Academy. He was married
September 10, 1856, to Miss Anna M.,
daughter of Dr. and Mrs. M. B. Bellows
of Seneca Falls, N. Y. He was commis
sioned lieutenant in Company H., 175 th
New York Volunteer Infantry, in
August, 1862, but resigned in Feb
ruary, 1863, owing to ill health.
He came West to Clinton, lowa, in 18(>n,
where he went into the hardware business.
The crisis of 1873 cautrht him and he lost
all he had of this world's goods. He came
to California in 1874, settling at Vacaville
in March of that year. On the first of
October ne moved to what has ever since
been known as the Buck ranch.
He leaves a widow and live children to
mourn his loss. Frank H. is married and
lives on a fruit ranch near the old home
stead at Vacaville. He has two young
sons. Fred married Dr. Akerly's daugh
ter and resides on the old homestead at
Vacaville. He has one son. One daugh
ter, Nellie, married John B. Cory of Lodi,
the son of Dr. Cory of San Jose. They re
side on a fruit ranch. The other* two
daughters, Miss Emma and Miss Anna,
reside at home with their parent*.
When Mr. Buck came to California he
went into ranching near Vacaville, and
owing to his ability as a manager made his
property pay. He secured from time to
time other property, until at the time of
his death ne owned a number of very
valuable pieces of property. It is esti
mated he was worth $300,000. He came to
Oakland eight years ago to educate his
youngest daughter, and bought the home
where he died, 929 Adeline street, and has
since resided there.
Captain Lees was asked yesterday if, in
view of ex-Senator Buck's death, he was
prepared to make any statement as to what
he wanted to see him about last Saturday,
and he replied: 'No, I have no statement
toj make. I will say that Mr. Buck's death
has greatly embarrassed me and will
hamper me considerably in following out
The captain, accompanied by Detectives
Seymour and Handley, spent two or three
hours yesterday morning in making a
careful search of the small room used by
Miss Harrington as a kitchen and her
storeroom for any weapon that might
have been used by the murderer. Every
nook and corner was searched, but nothing
was found with the exception of an old
hammer in a drawer. There was nothing on
the hammer to show that it had been used
by the murderer. Besides the kitchen is in
the hallway behind the door leading to the
rear apartments occupied by Mrs. Kellqeg
and which she found locked on the inside
when she discovered the tire on Saturday
"If the hammer had been used," said
the captain, "there would have been stains
of blood upon it, and other evidences of its
use by the murderer. It is my opinion
that the weapon used by the murderer was
carried away with him. '
Detective Seymour visited Oakland yes
terday and called upon C. S. Chamberlain,
472 Tenth street, the gentleman whom Mr.
Buck's son Frank said crossed over to San
Francisco with his father on Saturday
Chamberlain could not definitely fix the
time. He said he reached his store about
12 o'clock Saturday. He wrote two short
letters and then went to a restaurant two
or three doors from his store, where he had
lunch. Then he went back to the store for a
patent fruit box he was to take over with
him to the Union Box Factory at North
Beach. Then he caught the broad gauge
train at Seventh and Broadway and joined
Mr. Buck, who was on the train. He was
with him till they reached the City.
Mr. Bullock, Mr. Chamberlain's partner,
said he got to the store about five minutes
to 1 o'clock, and Chamberlain did not re
turn for the box while he was there. This
made Chamberlain think that he might
have taken the box to the restaurant with
him. He might have crossed with the 1
o'clock boat or the one later. He was not
The statement of Moore, the hackman, to
Detective Seymour on Monday was that he
saw Mr. Buck waiting for the train at
Seventh and Adeline streets at 1:45 p. m.
The family state that he did not leave the
house till 2:30 p. m., so that there are con
tradictions as to the time he crossed over
to the City after reaching home from Sac
The police are anxious to find out what
Mr. Buck's movements were on Saturday
prior to his fatal accident, but for what
purpose they decline to state.
Raleigh Barcar, the proprietor of the
Vacaville Reporter, who was the gentle
man that accompanied Senator Buck to
Oakland last Saturday morning, was inter
viewed at Vacaville yesterday. Mr. Barcar
said that he came across Mr. Buck shortly
after entering the train at Elmira and im
mediately commenced a conversation with
him on the various topics of the day.
Mr. Buck seemed in the best of spirits
and apparently in good health, and at no
time was anything said that led Mr. Bar
car for a moment to think his mind was
burdened with anything unusual. Mr.
Buck left the tram at Sixteenth street,
Oakland, and nothing further was thought
of the matter by Mr. Barcar until after the
news of the sad accident reached Vaca
EXIT THE DOUGLAS.
The Noble Couple in Hiding From Man
ager and Mother Near
Lord and Lady Sholto Douglas are in
hiding from an angry manager and mother.
Last Monday his lordship was to all ap-
pearance taken suddenly ill with nervous
prostration, and hurried away to Los
Gatos, where nerves are made whole and
life prolonged to an interminable age.
Her ladyship went through the morning
rehearsal and then disappeared like a liv
ing figure behind the stage curtain.
This rapid exit not on the bills was
planned by Douglas "tender and true" to
get himself and wife out of sight of her
mother, who desires to keep the new Brit
! ish noblewoman on the stage, and the
I manager of the Auditorium Theater, who
I holds a contract over his star actress. Mrs.
Douglas, as she is known in anti-monar
chical circles, yesterday received a sum of
| money from her husband's Eastern
i friends, and, like a dutiful wife, carried
I the coin to her good man, who is not at
Los Gatos, but in some quiet retreat near
The aforesaid contract which Manager
Moore suspends over the hidden couple
was signed by Mrs. Mooney two weeks ago
several days after her daughter's birthday,
consequenily it is held that she is not
legally bound by its conditions.
The marriage in the church of which so
much has been said is only part of the free
theatrical advertising which Lady Douglas
has received. It will never take place as
the young people are legally wedded and
are satisticd with that.
They intend to sail on the next steamer
for Australia, where Lord Douglas will
embark in horse racing, far away from
mother-in-law, manager and American
A TRUE LOVE AFFAIR
Irving Blinn, the Millionaire's
Son, Marries Miss Nannery,
a Pretty Actress.
The Nuptuals Are Solemnized by the
Rev. Father Gannon at the Home
of the Bride Last Night.
Irving Blinn, the son of L. W. Blinn, a
millionaire lumber-dealer of Los Angeles,
and Miss Genevieve Nannery, the actress,
were married at the home of the bride's
parents, William Nannery, 433 Second
street, last night. The Rev. Father Gan
non officiated. It was a very prettily
arranged ceremony. The ushers preceded
the bridal party, carrying ribbons in their
hands, and as they approached the front
room several yards of ribbon were paid
out on either side, forming a silken aisle
for the bride ami groom and their attend*
ants. The bride and groom were attended
by Misses Ada Ramsclell and Josie Sea

The bride was elegantly attired in a white
satin, duchesse, long train, orange blossoms,
and the bridesmaids— Miss Seabrook and
Miss Ramsdell — were prettily arrayed in
pink striped satin and cream silk respec
It was a very impressive ceremony. The
rooms were handsomely decorated and
rich and elegant costumes were worn by
the ladies present. Mr. and Mrs. Blinn
were kept from being present by the illness
of the former, but telegrams congratulatory
and strongly expressed showed the young
groom's parents were with him heart and
soul and approved his choice of an actress
bride. The presents were numerous and
costly and the wedding supper was a
triumph in the caterer's art.
After the ceremony, and the congratula

SEARCHING FOR A CLEW
The Mystery of the Murder of
James Howard Still
TWO YOUNG MEN ARRESTED.
They Give Satisfactory Explanations
of Their Movements and Will
Who struck the blow that killed James
Howard, the harness-washer for Wells,
Fargo & Co., at an early hour Monday
morning is as great a mystery as ever.
Detectives Coffey and Cody and Police
men Perrin and McPherson were working
on the case yesterday, but they failed to
find a clew to the murderer.
It was deemed advisable to hunt up the
two young men who were in the saloon of
P. J. Horan, 741 Howard street, when
Howard went into the saloon, between 2
and 3 o'clock that morning. They proved
to be William Graham, a teamster, living
at 1023 Bryant street, and John J. Lyons,
a teamster on Stone's ranch, Elmhurst,
Graham heard he was wanted and sur
rendered himself to Coffey, Perrin and
McPherson. Detective Cody went to
Stone's ranch and found Lyons stacking
hay. He took him to police headquarters,
where Graham had also been taken.
Graham said he went into the Bee Hive
saloon, Third and Howard streets, about
11 :80 o'clock Saturday night, where he
danced a jig. Lyons, whom he had not
met before, was there and asked him to
dance again. They had some drinks and
left the saloon about 1 o'clock Monday
morning. Lyons took Graham to the sa
loon of Richard Ash, his cousin, at 755
Howard street, but it was closed.
They found Horan's saloon open and
went in and had some more drinks. While
there, a man, whom they identified last
night as Howard, came in with Horan.
He was under the influence of liquor and
asked, "What do you think of a man of my
size getting lost?" Howard invited them
to have a drink with him and then they
threw dice for another drink. Lyons lost,
and while they were throwing the dice
again a dispute arose about Howard's
throw and he left the saloon and turned
toward Fourth street.
They remained in the saloon for two or
minutes longer and left. When they
reached Morosco's old theater they met
the night clerk of the San Francisco
,lodging-house and Graham, who occasion
ally slept there, gave him 25 cents and
asked him to open room 62 for him as he
was going to a restaurant to have some
thing to eat. He and Lyons went to the
restaurant, where they remained for some
time, and Lyons left to catch the first boat
Graham's statement was corroborated by
Lyons and afterward by the night clerk of
the lodging-house and the people in the
restaurant. Horan, in his statement pub
lished yesterday, said they saw the two
young men talking with Howard at Mo
rosco s old theater. In this he was mis
taken, as it was the night olerk.
Graham and Lyons say they left Horan's
saloon between 2 o'clock and a quarter
past 2. If this is correct it would acree
with the statement of the proprietor oi the
Old Friends' saloon, on Third street, near
Folsom, that Howard, accompanied by a
woman about 45 years of age, had a drink
in his saloon about 2:30 o'clock. It would
also coincide with Jerry Galvin's state
ment that Howard and the woman were in
his saloon about 3 o'clock and remained
five or ten minutes. Less than an hour
afterward Howard staggered into the
Southern station, wounded and bleeding.
The police have been bending all their
energies to find the woman who was last
seen with Howard, but without success.
She told Galvin she was a widow with
three children, and one of them was a
grown-up daughter. She may explain
away the mystery.
Graham and Lyons were locked tip in
the City Prison for the night, but will be
discharged this morning when an order
can be obtained from Chief Crowley.
To Economize Time.
A statistician has computed that the
average business man spends 37% eight
hour days at luncheon, 22% at breakfast
and 451-2 at dinner every year. That is, he
spends one-third of his entire time at the
table. It is suggested that this time might
be economized by hiring some ono to read
to him while he is eating. The business
man who spends his meal time thinking
and planning over his business probably
would find this a profitable experiment,
not so much because of the improvement
to the mind, but because of the distraction
and consequent rest that it would give.
The best way to occupy one's mind during
meals, however, is in pleasant, light con
versation; nor should anybody consider^
time so spent wasted. But speaking of
hired readers, a better plan can be followed
through the perfection of the phonograph.
This instrument will have reached its real
stage of general usefulness when a person
can set it going during his meals or at any
other time when his eyes are occupied and
his mind at liberty, and have the latest
novel, the daily newspaper or the current
magazine read to him from it. — Buffalo
