MACDONALD IS TO WED
Given a License Yesterday to
Marry Miss Loretta
A FAMOUS CASE RECALLED.
He Has Purchased a Home and Will
Find Employment In the Rolling-
Henry Macdonald, heir to the estate of
Captain C. K. S. Macdonald, obtained a
marriage license yesterday, which author
izes him to wed Miss Loretta Ryan of
1642% Mission street, a young lady of 19,
to whom he has been engaged for about a
year and a half.
The affair recalls one of the famous legal
battles of tiie State, laid out on lines for
which California has become famous the
world over. The death of Captain Mac
donald left an estate which contestants
hurried into litigation, variously esti
mated to be worth from $TiO,ooo to $150,000.
Relatives of the deceased drillmaster op
posed the claims of a wonian known as
Claude Lee, a variety actress, who appeared
in behalf of her son, for whom she claimed
Macdonald as a father. After a long and
sensational trial, Judge Coffey decided
that the boy belonged to Macodnald, and
that he was the lawful heir to the estate,
which, at the time litigation closed, had
dwindled down to about $25,u00.
Since that time and up to February 2 of
this year young Macdonald has received a
monthly allowance under the guardianship
of Mr. .MauiM->n of Madison, Burke & Co.
l/pon the latter date Macdonaid attained
hi? majority, and since that time he has
been allowed $125 per month.
An effort was made at this time to have
the young man declared incompetent and
another guardian appointed to manage his
estate, but Judge Coney did not take kindly
to the proposition and was not satisfied
with M:'>cdo!iald : s agreement to have the
money deposited in a bank subject to the
ordorof the court.
Out of his allowance Macdonald has
supported his grandmother and given his
mother regularly $25 per month.
lie has purchased a new cottage at 923
Alabama street, where he will take his
bride after the marriage ceremony, which
will be performed by Father Duran at St.
Joseph's Church, on Tenth street, one
week* from to-morrow. Macdonald's
grandmother, Mrs. Mary McGregor, will
reside with the couple, and young Mac
donald says he expects to go to work in
the rolling-mills at once. He seems quite
confident :n his ability to support a family,
even though he had none of the money of
the old drillmaster to fall back upon.
The prospective bride is a pretty bru-

nette. She lives with her mother and
brother. They are lavish in their praises
of young Madconald, who has been living
with the family for the past three or four
weeks, and declare that the daughter of
the house could not be given into better
keeping. Miss Loretta is very busy these
days between the dressmaker's and the
new cottage, which is being furnished after
her own taste. The modiste is at work on
the bridal costume— white satin, trimmed
with orange blossoms and chiffon lace.
The young people brought the veil home
last evening and Mrs. Mvan was so much
pleased with it that she kissed them both.

NO MERCY FOR ROBBERS
Judge Wallace Sends Thomas
Hutchinson to Prison
Two Other Convicts Get Twenty
Years Each— One of Them
Tries to Escape.
"It is all because the police have it in for
me," said Charles Hennessey yesterday
morning in Judge VVallace's court when
he was asked if he had anything to say
why he should not be sent to the State
prison for having, in company with
Thomas Hutchinson, held up and robbed
a sailor named Michael Mattison on Sec
"I was arrested and taken to the station,
and was there an hour and a half before I
knew what I was arrested for. I was con
victed through the lies told by the police."
"That is the same old story," said Judge
Wallace, "told by all who come here. I
know that you have been convicted of a
heinous crime. The sentence of the court
is that you serve twenty years in Folsom
Then Hutchinson's case was called. He
had a prior conviction of petty larceny
against him. A motion had been made
for a new trial by Hutchinson's attorney.
It was charged that a juror named Robert
Watson had answered on examination
that he had never seen Hutehinson before,
whereas he had been on the jury which
formerly tried him for petty larceny.
Judge Wallace did not think there was a
ground for a new trial on the submitted
facts and denied the motion. He then
asked the prisoner if he wanted to say
anything. He proved to be even more
talkative than Hennessey and also scored
the police, saying that they were prejudiced
against him and intended to railroad him
to the State Prison. He waxed eloquent
in the assertion of his innocence of the
His attorney, Mr. Woodbury, also made
a strong plea for clemency on behalf of the
"There is grave doubt of his guilt in this
case, and surely this is an opportunity for
mercy to be shown." he said. "The boy's
parents are respectable people, living in
Sew Zealand. The father has just arrived
h«?re, and is so prostrated with grief that a
severe sentence on his son will kill him.
The mother is on her way. I appeal to
your Honor that a sentence of life impris
onment would be a monstrous injustice
here. It would be horrible, infamous. I
pray your Honor to show some mercy."
Judge Wallace said he regretted that the
law gave him no choice in the matter of
punishment. The lowest sentence was, in
his opinion, imprisonment for life.
"Robbery," said the Judge, ""is a crime
that ought to be put down with an iron
hand, and as the law tixed no maximum
for the punishment to be inflicted, I have
decided that for a first offense a sentence
of twenty years' imprisonment should be
imposed. But where there is a prior con
viction I have no power to interfere. The
law prescribes a rule and I must follow it. "
And Hutchinson was sentenced for life.
Five boys of tender age_ were arraigned

requests though, and set next Thursday as

In the case of Andrew Beck, convicted
of robbery, a motion for a new trial was
denied and Andrew was sentenced to serve
twenty years in San Quentin.
Michael Thomas, who had pleaded guilty
of grand larceny, was sentenced to five
Thomas created quite a sensation later
in the day on Broadway, in front of the
County Jafi. After the prisoners had been
sentenced they were taken back to the
jail in the Sheriff's van to await their re

getting out of the van he suddenly slipped
the handcuffs from his wrists anil made a

dashed after him, and was joined in the

buildings in Ottawa and the shrine of St.
Anne de Beaupre.
At the end of last July Father Caraher
arrived in Ireland. He spent ten days in
visiting points of interest and then crossed
over to Scotland. Here he visited the field
of Bannockburn, made famous by the
Scotch poet, Burns, and Stirling Castle.
The view from this historic castle he con
siders to be the finest, he saw in the old
country. The beautiful scenery of the
Highlands alapcame in for a share of the
reverend gentleman's attention, as did also
the many natural wonders which abound
in Scotland. lona, the home of St. Colum
kille, was visited, and the beautiful cave
of Staffa. which the reverend father
thought to be one of the wonders of the
world, was also taken in.
After leaving Scotland the border was
crossed to England. Cathedrals and
churches naturally took up most of Father
Caraner's sightseeing time. York Minster
was visited, as were many other cathedrals
in England. Arriving at Southampton
the Southwestern Company's boat was
taken to Havre. A short seven hours'
journey brought Father Caraher to Havre.
The picturesque churches of Normandy
were visited, as was the grand cathedral
at Rouon, which is sketched by so many
artists in search of the beautiful.
La Madeleine and Notre Dame, the two
historic churches of Paris, were next vis
ited. At the former Father Caraher wit
nessed a grand high mans which was cele
brated in memory of Ferdinand deLesseps.
After making a tour of France, Switzer
land was reached. The great St. Bernard
was crossed and a visit paid to the hospice
of St. Bernard. The ancient hospice was
founded by St. Bernard of Menthon, and
the monks tnere still possess some of the \
breed of genuine St. Bernard dogs, which j
have many times been reported to be ex
Turin was the first town visited in Italy, j
While in that city Father Caraher called
upou the Very Reverend Father Sasia, S. J.,
Provincial of the Province of Turin and
ex-Superior of the Jesuits of the Pacific
Coast. Father Sasia made many inquiries
after his friends by the Pacific, expressing
his affection and remembrances of thi3
City and California.
At Rome Father Caraher was received
in audience by the Pope. The reverend
father was greatly impressed with his ap
pearance, saying that while the Holy
Father is feeble in body through age, yet
his intellect is quite clear and his eye is
yet undinimed. Of St. Peter's Father
Caraher said that "there is no church un
der the sun to be compared with-it in point
of size and magnificence."
After leaving Rome, a trip was made to
the great Benedictine monastery of Monte
Casino. It is interesting to note that this
monastery at one time during the middle
ages controlled the destinies of the re
ligious world. Many popes were given to
the church from Monte Casino.
Ship was taken at Brindisi for Alex
andria, and thence to Cairo. The latter
city is largely peopled with English,
French and Austrians. Father Caraher
was surprised to find such a large and
thriving city so far up in Egypt. A visit
was made to the Khedive, whom Father
Caraher describes as a young man of about
22 years of age. It is thought in Egypt
that trouble is likely to make its appear
ance before very long, as the young Khe
dive rather resents the interference of the
British Government and the occupation of
his territory by the British soldiery, 5000
of whom are located in Cairo.
"I have been disappointed in many
things," said Father Caraher, "but I was
certainly not disappointed with the Pyra
mids. I'hey are truly some of the wonders
of the worla. I entered the tombs of the
Egyptian monarchs and climbed the
pyramids of Gizeh and Sakarah."
Palestine was the next country visited, a
landing being made in Jaffa, via Port Said
and the Suez canal. Father Caraher
went to Bethlehem, where he celebrated
mass on Christmas morning at 3:30, in the
Church of the Holy Sepulcher. After
staying some little time in Jerusalem
Jericho was visited. Father Caraher en
joyed the peculiar sensation of a swim in
the Dead Sea, which is said to contain 25
per cent of salt, or to be a more buoyant
body of water than the great Salt Lake.
After trips to Galilee, Mount Carmel and
the Lake of Tiberias Beyrout was reached
by steamer. Thence Father Caraher went
to Damascus by stage. Branching off
from that city, he visited such old cities as
Antioch, Tarshish, Aiexandrette (named
after Alexander the Great), and stopped
some time in Smyrna.
The ancient city of Constantinople was
next reached. The celebrated mosque of
Saint Sophia was examined. Ship was
then taken up the Bosphorus to the
Black Sea. Here Father Caraher saw the
Grand Sultan at the ceremony of Selam
lick. This ceremony takes place on Fri
days, when the Grand Sultan comes from
the palace to worship in the mosque. It
was described by the reverend father as a
most imposing spectacle. Thousands take
part in the ceremony, and lines of military
are present to add aignity to the scene.
A visit, was then made to the islands of
the Grecian Archipelago, principally Pat
mos, Chios and Samos. The return jour
ney was made to Italy, thence to the man
ufacturing town of Lyons, France, by way
of the great Mont Cenis tunnel. Father
Caraber also stayed at the old papal city of
Avignon. Lourdes was visited, and a quick
trip was then made through to Paris s».nd
back to London via Newhaven and Dieppe.
After a short sojourn in London Father
Caraher crossed toHnlvhead and thence to
Dublin by steamer. The political situation
in that city is admirably summed up by
the reverend gentleman: "Dublin is largely
Parnellite. Of the six members for the
county and city four are Parnellites and
two Tories. I was extremely grieved to see

The Inventor of Gaslight.
Philippa Lebon, born May 29, 1768,
French chemist and engineer of roads and
bridges, is said to have been the inventor
of gaslight, having produced gas for illum
inating purposes derived from wood. He
labored hard and long to perfect his in
vention, made his discovery Known in 1799
and it was patented September 21 the same
year. About a year afterward he published
the result of his researches and experi
ments. Lebon began by distilling wood to
obtain from it ga?, oil, pitch and pyroiig
neous acid, but his work indicated the
possibility of obtaining gas by distillation
from fatty substances. From the taking
out of his patent to 1802 he made
many experiments. His first thermo
lamps were established at Havre; but the
gas which lie obtained, being a mixture of
oxide of carbon and carburetted hydrogen
not perfectly puritied, gave only'a poor
light and evolved a disagreeable odor, so
that his discovery found little favor, and
he was ruined by his experiments. He
died December 2, 1804. The ideas of Lebon
were soon put into practice in England.
Albrecht i. Wlnsor, a German inventor,
claimed the credit of having invented the
process of lighting by gas about 1803,
which was introduced at the Lyceum
Theater. In 1805 many shops in Birming
ham were illuminated" with gas made by
the process of Winsor and Murdock.

LOOKING FOR VACANT LAND.
The Co-operative Commonwealth
Asks Help on Credit and Sees
a Great Future.
That co-operative commonwealth which
is struggling to be safely bom is getting to
be more interesting every day. It is likely
to have a history that will give light to
other socialistic movements and to stu
dents of sociology and human nature,
whatever the length and glory of that his
tory may be.
Laura de Force Gordon, the president,
Manager Sells and others who are now en
gaged in getting socialism iixed so that it
will work have plans that are growing
every day and which now embrace a
scheme to provide at once and at any time
self-supporting employment to any man
or woman in all California that may be out
of work, besides giving to the members of
the commonwealth their full share of what
they produce, instead of letting capital
get the biggest share, as it does, they say,
under the competitive system.
The promoters of the Co-operative Com
monwealth are getting some prominent
people interested in it and are conlident of
getting sufficient encouragement and sup
port to set the enterprise on its feet and
enable it to then work out its own natural
destiny. The prospects and plans of the
commonwealth appear to be rather indefi
nite and embryonic yet, but the great cen
tral idea is that industries of various kinds,
controlled and managed by the directors,
shall be established, and in them each
member shall share the burdens and
profits. Members who wish to will live in
barracks at headquarters and be charged
with the expense of their support. As
work is given them they will be credited
with it, and when they work out in the
world a part of what' they earn will be
kept and credited to them.
It is proposed to get vacant land that
may be turned into vegetable gardens, es
tablish laundries, etc., and run an employ
ment bureau. Then any man or woman
in want may find a place to sleep and
plenty to cat, naying the commonwealth
by aoing a day or two's work a week nntil
regular employment can be found. Some
unoccupied land within the city limits is
being looked after quietly. This move is a
result of the successful experiment of
Mayor Pingree of Detroit. The com
monwealth is still somewhat pinched and
wan in appearance. The fifteen members
who are bunking and eating in the little
old red cottage on Nutoma street are find
ing provisions hard to get, and the land
lady is getting excited about the rent; but
better times seem close at hand. Within
the past day or two many people with
socialistic theories and an Interest in the
cause of labor have expressed an interest
in the movement and yesterday three of
the directors were appointed a committee
to soiicit aid, not as charity but on credit,

Natoma street, who constitute the practical
nucleus of the commonwealth, was the
most imperative thing, and the following
circular, with the names of the directors
attached, was prepared :

The Co-operative Commonwealth is an asso
ciation of men and women desirous of imme
diately relieving the sufferings of the unem
ployed and improving the condition of the
industrial classes generally. Every member of
our commonwealtn is desirous of earning an
honest iiving by honest labor faithfully per
formed. We do not ask charity. We want
employment. Until it is possible to secure
work for the many unemployed we ask the
generous people of Ban Francisco to assist as
in furnishing the necessaries of life to our
unfortunate fellows, who are actually in want
of bread. You are not asked to give, but we
ask you to help to furnish provisions, clothing,
furniture, beading, dishes, vegetables, fruits
or money, for which you will be duly
credited on the books of the commonwealth
to be paid for in labor at the usual rates when
ever an order for such services as may be re
quired is sent to the otlice, 1215 Sansome street,
room 10. We respectfully ask all hotel
keepers and restaurant proprietors to donate
what surplus food they can spare.
The officers of this association are well
known and responsible citizens and invite the
fullest investiKation of the means and objects
sought to be accomplished. We have an army
of unemployed— capable men and women— and
can supply all kinds of help for the house,
shop or farm immediately, and earnestly ap

The plan of the Co-operative Commonwealth
has been examined by me and seems practical.
Its oßieers are sincere and its members deserv

the people of our State. E. L. Fitzgerald,

commonwealth yesterday in her home and
office in the Fulton House on Larkin
street. She talks fluently and takes an
earnest interest in the young socialistic
enterprise that she took up when it struck
'•This is the first time I ever had any
thing to do with a scheme like this," she
said. "I am a socialist, and I don't care
who knows that. I have thought for years
that the social system was wrong, and* that
there is coming a revolution as great as
that which swept feudalism away. I feel
that the system is wrong which allows the
ones who produce the wealth to remain in
poverty while the wealth accumulates
where it cannot be used. So I take an in
terest in the workingman, and I cannot
see how intelligent people who have any
heart can fail to take an interest in people
who are kept in want, and perhaps wicked
ness, amid wealth whioh does nobody good.
"When they came to me a week ago last
Saturday I was told that they had nothing
to eat. I said, that shouldn't be, and 1
went right down into Baltery street and
got four sacks of potatoes and some other

and accepted the presidency, with the un
derstanding that it shouldn't take too
much of my time. Five of the men are

and when they went to work the other
morning they had nothing but bread and
potatoes for breakfast. Well, to-day I
appointed a soliciting committee who will
go out with these circulars, and. I think
they will be successful.

The men who do the work, in turn, will be

"I have never studied the history of
any of these socialistic colonies and can
not judfie why they fail, but this will be
different. This will be socialism applied.
The people of these colonies always get off
by themselves, and they combine social
and business life. This will be a business
enterprise entirely, and will be operated

competitive system, so to speak. We will
probably run a co-operative bakery and a
laundry, and such things. We will have a
big employment bureau and will be able to
supply labor of any kind. You have no

TWO STRANGE WEDDINGS.
The Shortest and Talleat Couples Ever
Married in Kngland.
On May 28, 1884, the wedding of the
shortest man and woman ever married in
England wps celebrated in St. James Hall
at Manchester. The bridegroom was Fran
cis Joseph Flynn, called "General Mite." a
native of Greene, in the State of New York,
who was born on October 2. 1864. and was
exhibited in Piccadilly, at London, from
November 22d, 1880. His height was 21
inches and his weight was only 9 pounds.
The bride was Milly Edwards, who had
been exhibited in London, in July. 1882.
She was 15 years old at the time of her
marriage, and weighed only 7 pounds, says
Spare Moments. At the "other extreme,
Captain Martin Van Buren Bates of Ken
tucky, in the United States, and Miss
Ann Hanen Swarm of Nova Scotia
who exhibited themselves together in
May, 1871, and were married at the Church
of St. Martin's-in-the-Fields, London, on
June 17 of that year, were each about seven
feet in height. Another peculiarity of the
latter wedding was that it was attended as
bridesmaids by their friends. Millie Chris
tine, who had been exhibited with them—
negro twin sisters, born in North Carolina,
in the United States, in 1851, who were
united in a manner very similar to the
brothers known as the "Siamese Twins."
These girls were wholly distinct in the up
per part of their bodies, but one in the
lower part of the spinal column and pelvis,
or backbone, and lower part of the body.
They sang and danced well, and were
named the "Two-Headed Nightingale."
In will, understanding and conscience
they were distinct; but happily, they
agreed well together, and were very happy.
They were exhibited in London as lately
as February 17, 1885. At both, of these
weddings there was, of course, a very large
number of spectators.
Queen Anne of England had a yen* red
face, from the constant use of stimulants.
