N. S. ARNOLD

business in California since early times. He
was horn at West Stockbridge, Mass., on the
22d of October, 1828, and arrived ill California
on the 27th of July. 1850. • His first occupa
tion in the golden State was the same that
claimed so many, in fact the vast majority
of the new arrivals, namely mining. Not
having arrived in the fateful year of 1849
Sir. Arnold was not entitled to admission to
the Society of California Pioneers, but
sharing the conviction common to a great
many otber men who arrived in this city
about the -nine time that lie did, he took the
stand that there should be a society formed
which should include those who, though not
pioneers in the 1849 limitation, should be
called the Society of Territorial Pioneers.
He therefore was Instrumental in forming
this society and lias held important offices in
its organization, lie resides at 614 Van Ness
avenue, and is the father of a large aud in
teresting, even talented family. Some of
the boys display considerable musical abil
ity ami the eldest daughter has proven her
self a teacher of high order. Mr. Arnold is
not much above the general height, with
piercing eves and a long white beard. He
as many interests in this State, some of
which are very valuable.
CEor.GE BUBBOWES. D.D.',-
Is one of the oldest clergymen on the Coast,
enjoying the greatest confidence, reverence
and affection, not only of his particular de
nomination, but of all with whom he conies
in contact. He is revered for his saintly
life, his ability ns a teacher. For years be
was a leading professor in the Presbyterian
"Theological Seminary of the Pacific, resign
ing from active duties only when forced to
admit that the years were 'telling upon him.
In controversial theology ho has always
been a keen reasoner, a live opponent, but
full of Christian courtesy. He was born at
Trenton, N. J., on the 3d of April, 1811.
His arrival in California dates back to July
28, 1859. He at once took up bis vocation as
a teacher. Those who have had the privilege
of being under js Instruction, or of sitting
under his preaching, will ever remember
him, no less for bis earnestness than for his
masterly presentation of his theme. His
appearance is suggestive of some noble old
prophet of a milder dispensation than that
which called for ibe denunciatory periods of
the ancient Hebrews. lie belongs to the
class who, "believing in the terrors of the
law, yet would persuade men."
In bodily health he is feeble, but his mind
has lost none of its fore. -■:-

THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO. SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 30. 1890-SIXTEEN PAGES.
i|Wy,LFRIEDA— By. Mrs. Emma E. Specht
U&ifi (St Louis; by the author). Mrs.
jpVli' Specht has presented a novel that is
full of deep thought, one that will set read
ers to thinking as they peruse the pages, lt
is a book that will commend itself to those
who are engrossed in mental phenomena
end the study of occult science. It is a
picture of physical nnd soul struggle. The
book contains but little of the conventional
novel ; the principal characters have passed
the heyday of youth and its follies. The
heroine, Alfrieda Uammersley, is a woman
of extraordinary ill power, who elevates
herself to a higher and purer plane of ex
istence, and carries with her in her upward
course those she conies in contact with. Her
influence shows the power of mind over
matter. Iv the preface the author writes:
In writing a novel upon such mi abstruse sub
ject, it was necessarily impossible to do moro
limn touch upon lhe main tcalures of the case iv
polui, 1 avn.R au Immeasurable Held yet un-

iiieeiatlOß Us UUllis, will it assume eliliar the
aspects of a far-f. ichtd narrative, an important
message or a I ueiiir, oveidiawu composition.

lions will also be placed upon lhe meaning of

and nieuial development.
Society as 1 Have Left It. —By
Would Make-all-astir. (New* York: Minerva
Publishing Company.) This is a satire upon
Ward McAllster's book, "Society as I
Have Fouud It," and is a clever skit, fol
lowing closely upon the linos of Mr. Mc-
Allister. The author says that "ill" book
'is intended to miss everything, with a beau
tiful disdain for any sense," and adds:
"Since my book is completed 1 have seen a
travesty on it, called "Society as 1 Have
Found It,' and following very closely upon
the lilies 1 liavo laid out. 1 havo now de
tectives trying to discover where and bow
they got my copy. But anybody who reads
both books will sec the difference."
Tue Magnet of Death.— By Lew Van
derpoole. (New York: VauderpoolePublish
ing Company.) The author has in this
work,* in vi.-w ot the fact that so much in
un tleru fiction rails' at marriage lies and
their sanctity, aimed to treat tliat subject
1 •in a more wholesome standpoint. He
endeavors to show by his story that all ate
more or less fatalists, nnd that in accordance
with tlie belief of ihe Hindoos wln-na
wronged husband is lying iv his grave where
his wile's heartlesssess lias sent him, when
her final hour has come, she is drawn to him
by tne strongest power iv the universe— the
magnet of death— and that it matters not
whether mountains or seas divide them,' or
even it she be on a sick bed Wasting away
with illness, she will still be drawn to him.
Over hill and held, across stream or ocean,
by deseit track or through loicsl solitudes
the magnet w ill still draw her on, her leet
knowing no weariness, until her head is pil
lowed un his grave. The book is dedicated
"as an admonition to the person who on
receiving it finds her name written on the
page by the »utlmr*S hand."
A Wakdof the Golden Gate.— By Bret
li.ite. (New York and boston: Houghton,
Mifflin & Co.) This is a very Interesting
story of California life iulheearlyuays and
is told in the well-kuo'ivn author's best
style, lt presents many phases of tlie limes
to which it is aevo'.ed, and is entertaining
from beginning to end, alike to those who
lived in Calilomia in the "days, when the
waters came up to Montgomery street,"
and to those who came in later years. .For

a holiday gift for children who are fond of
fascinating laity tales, It is au entertaining
and well-written collection of stones dicta
ted at school in Russian to the writer, tod
her by nurses and servants in her father's
household, and some are translations of
stories current among tho piople of Russia,
'lhe perlect recklessness regarding possi
bility— say nothing of probability— lends
a special charm to the Russian story. Noth
ing stops the. progress cf events. The most
: startling phenomena occur in the most
every day sort of way, and none of the
characters seem BUiprlsed at occurrences of
which tho bare ration almost deprives
one of bieath. It is a most interesting book
for sludt nts of lolk lore. For sale at the

Diseases" is the title of a book written by
W. E. Forest, 8.5., M.D., New York. The
author of this bonk says that he is not a dis
believer in drugs when drugs are properly
applied and used, but holds that the pro uer
place for urugs in most cases is in acute dis
eases, and that in chronic cases other meas
ures are more important, and drugs, when
used, should be employed only temporarily
and in a secondary place. He holds that a
physician should ue something more than a
dispenser of pills, powders and plasters,
and that his highest aim should bo to teach
the patient to care for himself by simple
and natural means. In his book he explains
his method, and gives many valuable, inac
tion! suggestions and lays down rules which
if followed must prove of great benefit to
those to whom they will apply. The book

AFTER TWENTY YEARS.
Fraud Charged in the Adminis-
tral 10 11 of an Estate.
A bill in equity was filed yesterday in the
United Slates Circuit Court that brings to
light allege I systematized efforts on the part
of an administrator to deprive the lawful
heirs of a d ceased land-holder of this Slate
of their rights. The complainants are
Catherine O'Doiinell arid Mary Dugan, resi
dents of County Donegal, Ireland, and tho
defendant is Roger O'Donnell of this city. •
The complainants charge that on Febru
ary 0, IWIB, Hugh O'Donnell died intestate
in this city, and left property, both real and
personal, to thu value of about £70,000.
They also claim that the heirs to this prop
erty at that lime were Jeremiah O'Donnell,
a brother, and Margiret McMonigle, Mary
Gallagher and Catherine O'Donnell, sisters,
of whom Jeremiah O'Donnell and Mary
Gallagher have since died.
Roger O'Donnell was appointed adminis
trator by the Probate Court in the following
March and in such capacity acted until 1879.
In his petition for letters he represented
that lie was so acting at the request oi the
complainants, and upon entering on his
duties as administrator, and to obtain abso
lute control of lhe property, he represented
to the heirs that it was about to be lost to
them on account of a lawsuit and asked for
powers of attorney fiuui each, with full
posers to fiet.
What purported to be powers of attorney
were given by all except Mary McMonigle,
and O'Donnell commenced bis work, so it is
charged, by having the ilibernia Bank lore
close a mortgage on a parcel of land and
compelling its sale. This piece of property
was sold to James McDevitt for $42,000, a
price which the complainants deem wholly
inadequate. Though the parcel WasT sold in
1870, len years later the Recorder of Deeds
failed in show a deed from the Sheriff to
In 1870 O'Donnell petitioned the court ol
this city for a guardian of the person of
Margaret McMonigle, and B. P. Oliver was
appointed, The defendant then, to secure to
his own use a parcel of land in Lake County,
obtained leave to sell it, and lie himself be
came its purchaser.
The complainants aver that the estate was
at no time iv jeopardy on account of a pend
ing law-suit, and that O'Donnell'* claims
were false; that the papers which purported
to be powers of attorney were in fact deeds
abslute on their face to the estate, and they
pray that the deeds thus fraudulently ob
tained be set aside. "»
It is stated that Roger O'Donnell is a cap
italist, residing at the coruer of Dupont and
Vatlejo. streets. -

Terrible Death of Heury Miller, a lioy

There being no school yesterday he made

to the sixth story. 01 a carpenter who was
working near by lie asked what time it was.
"It is just twenty* minutes after 11," replied

vwtcli in his pocket ho was- horrified to see

It was over eighty feet to the ground floor
and during the terrible fall the little fellow
struck three times against projecting beams.
He finally struck the ground, a mass of
bruised, quivering, but lifeless flesh and
bones.' A surgeon was summoned, but an
examination showed Unit the boy must have
been killed before this frightful downward
journey bad terminated.
Contact, with the projecting timbers had
broken both. ami crushed the skull.
The Coroner was' notified of tho accident,
alter whieli the mangled remains wero re
moved to the home of the grief-stricken
parents. ' .
