SAN FRANCISCO, Cab, October 14.
According to tho district attorney's
office, Eugono E. Schmitz, former mayor
of San Francisco, now a convict, has
lost his right to appeal to tho higher
court through a blunder of his nttornoy,
Charles 11. Fairall, and must go to the
Moreover claim is made that after
Fairall discovered his mistake ho sought
and procured a change of tho record
transcript of appeal to cover his own
errors. Tho recommendations in ink

prosecution rofuses to accept service of
Schmitz was sentenced on tho 8th of
July. Fairall took an appeal on tho
samo day, assuming that judgment had
been entered on tho rough minutes. Tho
fact that this had not been done, it is
declared, made his apepal fruitless.
Judgment was not entered or en
grossed until July 11, three days later.
Clerk McManus and Judge Dunne have
made an affidavit to that effect. The
law, however, allows ninoty days in
which a new appeal may bo filed. Fair
all, who did not discover the error until
a printed transcript was placed in his
hands, has allowed this period to slip
by without making any move. He then,
it is said, induced Deputy Clerk Buck
ley to sot the date of entry back to
July 8. A correction of both tho certifi
cate of judgment and the certificate of
appeal appear on the margin in ink
under Buckloy's initials.
Tho district attorney's office has re
fused to accept service of the transcript,
as tho appeal bears on its back neither
tho signature of Lnngdon nor that of
Judge Dunne. It is not known what
course tho prosecution will pursue in the
matter, as it was first mado public by
Fairall himself, who started an investi
gation by declaring that thp records of
the court had been changed.
