C. C. BROWN IN NEW ORLEANS.
Be is There to Claim the Fortune Left by His Sister. A Characteristic Interview With the Eccentric Sacramentan in a Local Journal Charley Brown, who went to New Or leans the other day to claim the fortune left there by his sister, Fanny Sweet, Is evidently making his presence in the Crescent City known,' judging by the from the "Times-Democrat" of recent date: "I am Charles C. Brown, the man from Sacramento, the only brother of Fanny Sweet, and I am glad to meet a representative of the 'Times-Demo crat,' " and the speaker extended a big. round hand that showed distinct signs of manual labor for a shake. "There Is lio mystery connected with my claims and there has not been the slightest Becrecy in my movements since coming to New Orleans, as has been intimated. !We have nothing to conceal." This was Charles C. Brown's own (Way of introducing himself. He is here from Sacramento, Cal., to contest thft (Will of Fanny Hinckley-Mills, better known as Fanny Sweet, and he claims to be the only legitimate heir to the fortune, which is variously estimated about the $75,000 mark. He is accom panied by his only son, Jay R. Brown. "Then tell me the secret of this etrange life that has pased without anyone really understanding it," re quested the reporter. "My dear young man, that life, why, It would fill a book. But I will tell you all I can, and my lawyer will tell in open court the things I can't. "You must go back with me to the old homestead in Ohio and try to think It about the year of 1824. Two hundred tniles above Cincinnati, in Lawrence County, at Proctorsville, on Paddy Creek —yes, plain old Dutch Paddy Creek. There is where we five children Were born, right on the bank of the creek. My father was John Jay Brown, a plain old Dutchman, who served four years in the army of the Rhine. My mother's name was Rebecca Small •wood before she married and she was a Frenchwoman. "The first child was James Brown, who long since died at Bristol. Next came Mary Brown, born in 1820, who married James McVey and later moved to Huntington, W. Va. Sarah Henri etta Brown was the third child, and she married John McCormick of Cincinnati. They started to California in the great frold rush of 1849, but he never reached there, dying on the plains. The fourth child was Rachel Fanny Brown, who was just two years, two months and twenty days older than I, which makes Jier having been born in 1821, as my birthday was February j, 1824. "This, then, was the starting point of my sister Fanny. We lived in Proctors ville, Ohio, as children and until Fanny vas IU years old. At that time, which v/as about 1841, Fanny went down to Cincinnati to see her sister, Mrs. Mc- Cormick, who was there with her hus -1 ;;nd. This was our first separation and It so happened that I saw but little of her after that. She remained in Cin cinnati until my sister and brother-in law started to drive through to Califor nia, when she went with them. My bother died on the way, but the two women pushed on to California. "It was then that I took to steam boating. I came down to New Orleans and for years steamboated up the Red 3 Liver from this port. 1 recall many of the old vessels we ran. Oh, this is no new city to me! In its old days I knew it well and many of the old shipping houses here. "While in California my sister Fanny had trouble with a man named Putnam end shot him. It is no secret and I don't care If you publish it. Yes, she shot him. Then she was spirited away from there, and after much rambling: about the country she suddenly turned up at the eld homestead in Ohio. It wasn't long: tintil she grot into some trouble with my brother-in-law, McVey, and sued him for a big - sum. That suit was one of the famous cases in the Ohio courts of those early days. I returned there at just this state of affairs and learned the situation. It enraged me very much and I saw Fanny only once. The time I saw her she was standing on the deck of the steamboat Henry A. Jones, Captain Bill Knight, which was lying Rt anchor in the Ohio River near our home. Fanny asked me to come on hoard and down into the cabin: that r-he was in trouble and wanted to see me. I told her 'no'; that I would have rothing to do with the case, and turned away. "That was in IST>G, and it was the last time I ever saw my sister Fanny. I sold out everything and skipped. "In the meantime I had married Jay's mother," continued Mr. Brown, pointing to his son, and walking across the room to blow a wad of tobacco out of his mouth. Then he pulled a long shot bag out of his pocket and took from it a large plug of old Star, one corner of which he proceeded to twist eft between his thumb and forefinger. The good-natured Californian then con tinued: "We went to Missouri and located in Jasper County. Our home stood on the county line —in fact, half in Jasper and half in Lawrence County—but it was not a home divided against itself. I first went to Sacramento, Cal.. in 1868, and we settled there permanently in 1872. I have been right there ever since. While I was in Missouri my sis ter Fanny drifted down the river to New Orleans. In 1877 she wrote to the Postmaster at Sacramento, Cal., and asked if I lived there and to send her my address. He gave her my address, and from that time she kept up a cor respondence with my wife and also my eon Jay." "By what name did you know her?" asked the reporter. "We always thought her name was Hinckley until the year 1870, when she wrote to me. saying that she had just lost a big lawsuit in New Orleans and •was broke. She asked me to send her SSO. I drew up a check for $100, with out a word of explanation, and inclosed ft in an envelope to Fanny Sweet. In that request she signed herself 'Fanny Sweet'; that was the first time I had ever known her by that name. We un derstood that she married men by the names of Seymore and Ranger while in "Pure and Sure.' 7 Cleveland $ Baking Powder, Cooks like it It's sure to make cake light and dainty. Recipe book free. Send sump and address. Cleveland Baking Powder Co., New York. California, but this was only a report. I do not know to my personal knowl edge that Fanny was ever legitimately married." "Does the bank have any record of that $100 check?" put in the writer. "As soon as I learned of her death, 1 went to the bank to inquire about tht, check, and they said all old checks were destroyed every ten years. If that check could be traced it would prove my identity without further words." "And you feel confident that there is no other heir to this fortune, whose owner declared that she had no living relative?" "There can be no other, unless it be a niece, the daughter of my sister, Mrs. McVey. She would be about 54 years of age, and her name is Rosanna Fuller, living in Dayton or Cleveland, 0., and Ido not know which. She has two chib dren. Our family was the queerest family you ever saw, we were all regu lar 'Wandering Jews,' as you can see." "What is your occupation, Mr. Brown?" C. C. Brown smiled a good, healthy California smile, stretched himself up to his full stature, walked across the room, spat in the cuspidor, and, with his hands in his pockets, said: "I do nothing but rent houses and collect rents. They call me a capitalist, which is not exactly true in these days. But I make out to live, when I am at home, and have some to spare. I shall stay in this city until the case is set tled. My son there is an attorney-at law, and he has his sheepskin, too —I call diplomas 'sheepskins.' " Mr. Brown is very athletic in build, and would make a splendid center rush for a college football team, if he was> forty years younger. He is 72 years ol age, but he does not look it by ten years. "I am six feet in my bare feot," said Mr. Brown, and he stood up, filled his lungs and threw his shoulders back to show the powerful man he is. "I was v' feet 1% inches during my army days, and I was on the pension side, too, but I am not drawing a pension." This claimant to the Fanny Sweet es tate can give an excellent description of the woman he says was his sister. She was 5 feet 0 inches, being only three inches lower than himself. In younger days she had a head of won derful yellow blonde hair, which c hanged to a darker hue in her old age. Mr. Broun says his hair was very light at one time, but has grown darker, and now is growing light again. C. C. Brown bears a letter from C. H. Hubbard, Mayor of Sacramento, ad dressed to Mayor Fitzpatrick of New Orleans, which tells of Mr. Brown's long residence in the former city. The bearer will be presented to Mayor Fitzpatrick to-day by Attorney William K. Horn. Other letters have been brought from the far West, which are now in the hands of Attorneys Rogers and Dodds, who have charge of the case in court. One is from Judge Matt. F. Johnson of the Sacramento Superior Court, and is addressed to the Judge of the Probate Court. Another bears the signature of Judge A. C. Hinkson, also of the Sacra mento Superior Court. Judge W T . A. Henry, for seventeen years Judge of the Police Court, addresses a note, "To whom it may concern." The President of the National Bank of D. O. Mills, Sacramento, has furnished Mr. Brown a letter of credit to the New Orleans National Bank, which has already been presented. When the special dispatches from New Orleans first announced the death cf Fanny Sweet in the San Francisco papers C. C. Brown received the fol lowing letter: "San Francisco, Jan. 13, 1896. "C. C. Brown, Sacramento, Cal.—Dear Sir: I was pleased to see by telegraphic news in the papers that you stand a chance for a handsome fortune in New Orleans, and I sincerely h°P e it will turn out to be true. At any rate, I take the liberty of writing and congratulat ing you upon your good fortune. Your sister told me something about the sister recently deceased, and I have no doubt you are the heir. "JUDGE S. C. BENSON." "Say, young man," and the reporter felt a hand touch his shoulder as he was leaving the room. "I wish you would do one thing for me through your paper. Correct the impression given out in the papers that there is a great mystery surounding my claims to Fanny Sweet's fortune. There is none whatever. Ev erything connected with the case is open to the world. I am the only brother, and we will prove that she did have a brother. Good-by. Come again and let me talk to you about California. There's nothing like it."o ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION. The following articles of incorporation have been filed in the office of the Sec retary of State: The Corinthian Yacht Club.

The Building of the New Union Depot Cannot Proceed Until the Mat ter is Ssttled. The State Board of Examiners held a meetfng yesterday, Governor Budd, Secretary of State Brown and Attorney- General Fitzgerald being present. The bill of Bateman Bros., for work on the new union depot in San Fran cisco, by authority of the Harbor Com missioners, was presented to the board for payment. There being some question as to whether the Harbor Commissioners had properly authorized the work, Attorney- General Fitzgerald advised that for the purpose of testing the matter, and for that purpose only, the Governor and Secretary of State allow the bill and that he should refuse to do so and no tify the Controller not to draw his warrant for it. In this way it could be brought before the Supreme Court through mandamus proceedings. After some discussion the board acted in compliance with the Attorney-Gen eral's advice. The Supervisors of Napa County wish to refund their county bonds, and As semblyman Wilkins came up yesterday to see about it. The Attorney-General s&id that if the indebtedness was con ircacted previous to the adoption of the new Constitution, the Supervisors had a right to refund the bonds. He was of the opinion that it was the duty of the State to give preference to the bonds of its own counties when offered to it for investment. The board agreed with him, where proper inducements were offered. A letter was read from the Secretary of the State Normal School at Los An geles, saying that an offer had been made for some parallel bars and cheap drawing tools, and asking permission to sell them. The Governor suggested that they be sent to Glen Ellen, saying that they could probably be of use there. It was astonishing to see the work done by some of the feeble-minded children there, in carving with pocket-knives, making frames, etc. He looked forward to seeing them learning trades and making many articles a few years from now. The Governor next spoke of brick made by patients at the Napa Insane Asylum, which was sent to San Fran cisco to use in building the new build ings for the State University there. The Attorney-General thought that it was doubtful if it could be done legally with an article that would come Into competition with free labor. His re mark brought on a spirited discussion among the members of the board, which covered the proposition of Labor Com missioner with regard to the employ ment of convict labor in manufactur ing. The Governor could not see why one of the State institutions should not be able to buy its supplies in certain lines from another State institution. Secretary of State Brown said the State had great quantities of stone at Fol som, and the free labor was perfectly Willing to use it. There was $2(10,000 worth of stone to be used and the State .. as going outside and buying the stone in another State. As no disposition could be made of the subject under discussion, until the plans for the affiliated colleges were adopted, the matter was dropped. The Burr claim came up for expenses of the requisition proceedings for the arrest of an ex-County Treasurer named Hammond, the case being the one in which Governor Waite of Colo rado refused to honor the request of Governor Markham. Governor Budd stated that the Con stitution of the United States provided that the Governor of a State shall sur render a prisoner who flees to another State, and that Governor Waite's state ment that the papers were not in ac cordance with the law was not correct, as Colorado had no law on the sub ject and the requisition was according to the United States statute. As it was not the fault of Burr that he did not bring his prisoner back, the bill was allowed, with the exception of his expenses from Los Angeles to this city. The board did not consider that there was any fund from which the bill of $492 for the funeral expenses of the late Lieutenant-Governor Millard could be paid by them, but decided to recommend to the Legislature, at the September meeting, that it be paid. The bill of R. J. Whittaker, who went to New York to bring back a prisoner, was taken up and Secretary Markley said that he told W'hittaker before he went East to get vouchers for everything, and Whittaker refused to do so. The bill was allowed after being considerably cut down. Secretary Markley presented his re port on the evidence of the Jordan claim and the Governor said that it would also have to be considered at the September meeting. "I do not see why," said the Attorney- General. "It has been passed on by a former Board of Examiners, and I do not see that we have anything to do with it." "Well," said Secretary of State Brown, "I think we had better refer the matter to the Attorney-General to find out whether it will be necessary at the September meeting to recommend it to the Legislature." "All right," said the Governor. "How many more things are you going to refer to me?" asked the At torney-General. "Oh, we all know you have not much to do just now," said the Governor. "Yes, we know that, and we have something else to refer to you," said Mr. Brown. "We want your opinion on the matter of voting. There are a large number of people in this building who have to reside in Secramento to fulfill their duties, but who wish to vote ln their real homes. I am, for instance, living in Sacramento at present, but my home is in San Francisco, and I want to vote there." "Well," said the Attorney-General, "then you will have to get the Legisla ture to make a good appropriation for an office for you there, like they do for me, and have you attend the Supreme Court, and you will be all right." "Oh, the trouble with Brown is, that they do not need Republican votes here in Sacramento, and he wants to get down to Democratic San Francisco where his vote will count." "Well, if that is the case. I shall have to stand in with you Brown and help you out," said the Attorney-General, with a laugh. "In the meantime I am hungry, and I want to go to lunch." Such being the case, the board ad journed to allow him to satisfy his hunger. Carlson's Assailant Held. Isaac Pierson, who is charged with trying to kill Nels Carlson by stabbing him last Sunday, concluded not to put in any defense on his examination yes terday morning, and was held to an swer on a charge of assault to murder, with bail fixed at $1,000.
