Departure of the San Juan, Captain
The steamer San Juan sailed for Panama
and wayports yesterday in command of
Captain Frank H. Johnston, late of the
City of New York. Captain Johnston
looked happy as he stood on the bridge
and waved "good-by" to a delegation of
friends who came to see him off.
Business with Central America continues
light and the San Juan did not carry out a
very large cargo. tfusiness men say the
trade with the south has been duller this
season than it ever bas been before.
There was very little damage done to
the steamer Mexico in the collision with
the tug Walter Hackett. In the confusion
caused by the sound of scraping steamers
and the, shock of collision passeDgers at
first thought that something serious had
happened. Luckily it will require very
little patching; to repair the vessel.
Capttin Modtell of the Hackett was
mentioned in The Call as being the
skipper who figured in the newspapers
once as the man who smashed into the
wharves so often when in charge of the
revenue boat Captain Montell is not the
person. lie is a careful and efficient offi
cer aud has always given satisiaction as a

Captain A. P. Lorentz°n does not think
that the sealing schooner Matthew Turner
has been lost, but there seems to be every
nroof that the stories from Japan regard
ing the vessel are true.

WANTED FOR FORGERY.
Kollo J. Burton to Be Extradited to
Rollo J. Burton, who has been employed
in the mining exhibit at the Midwinter
Fair since February last, was arrested on
Saturday night and locked up in the City
Prison. He was booked "en route to Los
Angeles, witness," but it turns out that
ibis was merely a subterfuge.
The real reason of Burton's arrest was
that he was wanted by Wells, Fargo &
Co. on the charge of forgery. Burton is a
mining man and was prospecting near
Yuma, Ariz., when the forgery was com
William Bohne of Ehrenberc, Ariz., on
July 11 last year deposited S3OO. in Wells,
Fargo & Co.'s bank here. He lost the cer
tificate of deposit and some weeks after
ward it was presented to Gandolfo & Sau
guinetti of Yuma by Burton, who asked
for 5125 on account. He got SIOO and
asked that the remaining Sii should be
sent to Thomas Hamilton of Ehrenberg.
He signed the name of William Bobne on
the back of the certificate for the part pay
ment and left it with them.
About a week later Gandolfo & San
guinetti received a draft through H. H.
Hawkins, druggist, Kingman, Ariz., for
the $375 due on the certificate. They did
not honor the draft, but communicated
with Wells, Fargo & Co.. and were in
formed it was all right, so it was honored.
Wells, Fargo & Co. were astonished
later when they received a letter from
Bohne that be had lost his certificate of
deposit, and requesting a new one to be
issued. Then the forgery was discovered.
Burton does not deny the charge, but
says that he found the certificate on a
mountain trail, twenty-live miles from

Saved by a Rail.
The Pacific Cable Railway Company
sued the Consolidated Piedmont Cable
Company in the United States Circuit
Court, charging infringement of a patent
granted to A. S. Hallidie for a device pre
venting grips from striding the inner walls
of curves in railways. They were not suc
cessful, however, and took the case to the
Court of Appeals, where a decision was
given yesterday in favor of the defend
ant on the ground that an old-fashioned
rail is used by the company, after the
Hovey patents of 1876.
