FORGOT HIS HOME WEALTH.
fie Left a Fortune in California to !
Become Rich in (Sonth Africa.
Another strange discovery ha« come
to light In the Hibernla Bank deposits
that have been neglected for many !
years by their owners. It appears that ]
Jeremiah Pendergast, long mourned as
dead. Is alive and prosperous in South j
Africa, where he has made a fortune.
It is learned that he has apparently for
gotten that $12,000 await him in the Hi
tornia Bank of San Francisco.
The history of Pendergast'a deposit i
Is one of the most Interesting of all the i
old estates that have lain unclaimed for
years in the vaults of San Francisco ,
banks. In the first place it now amounts
to $12,000, being the largest sum of all
the unclaimed deposits; and, in the next
place, it has perhaps been more widely
advertised and more generally claimed
than any other sum in the list Strange ;
ly, however, nearly all the Pendergasta,
save the real owner seem to have heard, \
of this money and laid claim to It, wbil<|
the original depositor has lived quietly j
in South Africa all these years, heedless
of the fact that his gold lies in the bank ;
awaiting the owner's orders. Attorney j
Oscar T. Shuck has Just located the
original Jeremiah Pendergast in the
Congo Free State, where the old man
lives in great luxury, having amassed
a large fortune since he went there as
one of the pioneers of nearly twenty
"Pendergast went to South Africa In
1878," said Attorney Shuck, "being one
of the leaders of a California colony,
lie left a good Bum in the bank here, i
since which time no one has ever heard j
of him until I got word that he was wellj
end rich. The nearest trace we ever .
got of him here was that he was at the i
old Empire Hotel on Pacific street some
time between 18GS and 1870. Hundreds j
of alleged heirs have been after the es- :
tate, but it will no doubt, soon reach j
the original depositor."
A strange fact about the case Is that:
the public administrator recently peti- :
tioned for letters of administration, al- i
leging In a general way that Pender- !
gast died some years ago in Nevada.
Judge Slack went so far as to aprvpinS ■
Atorney J. J. Dwyer io~represent the i
«bi^^etrsTbut Attorney Shuck sug- :
gested that Pendergast still lived, |
whereupon the letters of administration j
It Li quite probable that the claimants
were really Induced to believe that j
their ancestor died In Nevada, where !
an old miner named Pendergast ex- j
pired in a fire that destroyed his cabin j
end himself at midnight in a mountain ■
fastness. They will soon learn, how- ,
ever, that the true Jeremiah Pender> ,
gust, who left a few thousand dollars j
in the Hibernia Bank in IS6B, went to '■
South Africa with only a little money,
and is now grizzled with age, but gilded
with gold also. The real heirs to this j
strange pioneer lived in Massachusetts, j
The bankers and attorneys, as well i
as the public administrator, are won- |
dering why the pioneer of '49 deserted i
his gold here, even to become a pioneer :
in the African gold fields. At any rate,
the money is safe. The distribution of j
a living man's funds has been prevent- j
ed, and $12,000 now awaits the owner's !
order.—San Francisco Chronicle.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing, Hopkins & Co.'m Review of
Porland, Or., Oct. 14 —There has
been a decided change in speculation
from extreme dullness to unsual ac
tivity within the past month. The
change has been so sadden that the
trade is becoming accustomed to it,
and all the indications point to aotive
markets for the rest of the fall, and
well into the winter. There is a more
confident feeling among operators in
general, and the improved business
: situation also has a good effect. There
is no doubt that the turning point has
come, and that we have seen our low
est prices this year, and probably for
some years. The advance in prices has
given the bulls good profits and scared
the bears so that they are not inclined
to make much of a fight against higher
prices, as the bull fever is on and will
have to run its course. There will not
'■ be an easy time for the short sellers,
i and for the present they will have to
be satisfied with small profits. There
will also be plenty of setbacks for the
bulls, but all indications point to a
higher range of prices. Of late there
has been advances followed by sharp
breaks, but the prices have not reached
Jto the previous low point. This is the
way the bull leaders expect the markets
to work all the way up. .
For years it has been the custom of
the trade to take no stock in bull move
ments unless based upon heavy country
buying. The fact that the countrymen
have not come in of late has deterred
many from taking the bull side with a
vim. There has been a moderate in
crease in outside speculation, but the
bulk of the new business has come from
a different source —the foreigners.
I They have to a great extent taken the
place of the countrymen. They are
large traders and the majority have
made money. Their trade comes to a
few houses and is not as apparent as
the country business, and hence is very
deceptive, there being a great deal of
it at times that takes all offerings in a
quiet way, and the pit traders wonder
where the stuff goes to, as it does not
come on the market again for some
time. When they get to making money
; they stay at it, and thus far have been
able to catch the turns to better ad
vantage than the majority of the home
operators. This will tend to keep
them in the market right along.
Exports of wheat continue large, be
; ing 4,050,792 bushels last week, against
about 8,000,000 bushels a month ago.
i and 2,224,000 bushels for the corre
sponding week a year ago. We would
' call the attention of those who bleieve
the present price of wheat too high, and
who think the advance has been too
rapid to be maintained, to the increase
in exports last week over those of a
; month ago when the price was iSo
cheaper. We also quote as a reason
for this heavy increase the estimates of
the Hungarian minister of agriculture
on the deficits of wheat in the several
different exporting countries, which we
think has an important bearing on the
price question. He estimates the de
ficit of wheat in America, compared
with 1895, at 50,000,000 bushels,
which is less than any of the American
authorities estimate it. He estimates
the Russian deficit at 75,000,000 bush
: els; the Argentine at 12,000,000 bush
: els. This makes a total deficit in these
three exporting countires of 137,000,
--000 bushels. Besides the shortage in
these three countries there is a short
age in India of about 50,000,000 bush
els, and a considerable shortage in Aus

tirao yesterday Christian Soil and
John P. Green, two old prospeotors, be
lieved they said good-bye to poverty
and had jumped into riohes that
clouded the fame of Monte Cristo from
view. They were the possessors, they
were confident, by means of filing a
mining claim on a portion of the ocean
shore near the cliff house, of the rioh
est quicksilver mine in the world. A
moderate estimate of its value they
thought would reach $10,000,000, and
as the ledge was on property owned by
Adolph Sutro, as they thought, they
believed they oould acquire it under
the mining law.
The dream was short-lived. They
had scarcely left the city hall, after
filing their mineral notioe, when they
learned that they had located on a
piece of the Presidio, instead of the
possessions of the mayor. With this
knowledge away went shimmering
dreams of untold wealth, for title to
military reservations is beyond the
reach of the caveat of the law regard
ing mining claims.
But even in the face of this disheart

immutable hand had banished them

hope that the government will allow
them to develop as much of their claim

Omaha, Neb., Oct. 12.—Merchant
Rosenbloom, of Omaha, was today re

court because he could not name the
number of representatives each state

who has obtained notoriety through in

Rosenbloom was subjected to a severe
fire of cross- questions. He answered
correctly as to the manner of electing
a president in this country, the re
quirements of a foreign citizen desir
ing to become naturalized, the number
of senators and representatives in
congress, and the number of senators
and representatives Nebraska has in
congress, but when asked the number

was stumped. He offered to name
some of them, but this was not satis
factory to the court. Becoming some

"I am only a plain business man,
your honor, and do not have the time
to study up all these questions."
"That does not make any differ

"if the people don't know any more
about the requirements than you do,
they should never be naturalized."
The court closed the book with a
slam, curtly informing the applicant
that he talked too much and could not
get his papers.

The Disaster Was Due to a Dense Fog

An eastbound freight train, in trying
to enter the yard, was stopped by a
switch that refused to work. Before
the trouble could be remedied, a spe

the fog, the danger signals were not
seen until too late. The second train
dashed into the first one, wrecking the
engine and several cars. Hardly had
this collision occurred, when passen
ger train No 8 crashed into the rear
of the wrecked special, and a few min

"The white population cannot es

The native race is among us a weaker
and morally inferior people, and we
owe them such protection as they can
not exert for themselves. The appe
tite for intoxicants seems with them
uncontrollable if liquors are obtaina
ble. We protect by stern enforcements
of the statutes other wards of the law;
minors and feeble-minded and common
drunkards; and we have permitted the
statute enacted to remain dead, ne

government assumed jurisdiction and
latterly because the federal courts
have declared the alloted Indian a citi

of the opinion that the constitution and
courts upon the ground of public inter
est will sustain the law placing men ol
Indian blood in category named above,
requring the shield and protection el

calm, candid examination by you oi
the whole situation and such report as
shall in the future be a guide to officer!
and magistrates, that the public may

extinguished the flaming clothing,
seeming to forget all about the boy.
He rushed out of the house, his cloth

back into the building, but was seized ■
by the townspeople. When the house
was all aflame he gave up the strugglt

was over and he would kill himself.
He was taken back to town, where h<
