OLSEN'S OVERALLS. A Damaging Link of Evi dence Against Him. Were the Stains Upon Them Ivett's Blood? That Is a Point For the Prosecution ■to Prove. The Examination of August Olsen For the Murder of Old Man Ivett Begun. Associate* 1 . Tress Dispatches. Merced, Cal., Nov. 28.—Justice of the Peace Robertson called his court to order this morning for the purpose of giving a hearing to August Olsen, the man arrested for killing John Ivett, a wealthy rancher, November 9th. The defendant was present, accompanied by his attorney, N. H. Hatton, of Modesto. District Attorney Breckenridge asked that Court Reporter Ostrander be ap pointed to serve as reporter in the case, and ti™t. B. F. Fowler, district attorney elect, be recognized as associate counsel for the prosecution. The defense then asked for an order excluding all wit nesses from the court room. The request was granted, and the trial of the case be gan by about thirty-live witnesses be ing sworn. The first two witnesses, Mrs. J. AY. Gibbons and Miss Vacaro, testified that they knew Olsen, and that they met a man on the road near Mugler ranch on the Sunday evening of the murder. Miss Vacaro was positive that it was •Olsen, and described his dress and horse. He was at Mugler's place and had a companion. Olsen was horse back. He wore a white hat with about a 3-iuch brini. He had an overcoat on and blue overalls. She noticed nothing tied to his saddle. She did not notice Olsen's companion and could not describe him. Mrs. Gibbons was not sure it was Olsen, but remembered meeting two men at Mugler's ranch. Mrs. Harsley, wife of the postmaster at Snelling, sivore that Olsen came to the office after dark, Sunday night, No vember 9th, and asked for Ivett's mail, but she, not knowing him, made him wait till her husband came from the rear of the store. Harsley swore that he waited on Olsen, but he had no mail for Ivett. Olsen wore a light slouch hat and oassimere pants and a long overcoat. J. P. Janes, an employee ol the late Ivett, testified substantially us follows: "I am a laboring man, and have resided at Ivett's for a long time. I waa there Sunday, November9th, the day previous to the finding of the body. I saw Olsen there that day, at the lower house, where the men stopped. The men all played cards, drank wine, and bad a good time that day, Olsen included. He had ou a broad-brimmed white hat and light pants and a long overcoat. He •lid not have on the same clothes Mon day at the inquest. About 4 p.m., Sunday, Olsen said he would leave, and I did not see him afterwards that day. I was quite familiar with Ivett. Mrs. Ivett was away, and he ate at the lower house, with the men, and slept at his residence on the hill. He left the lower house about dark, and started for home. He forgot his dog, Ora, that generally slept at the upper house with him. The dog was locked in the cellar, and he for got her. I was the first to find Ivett's body. He did not come to break fast] and I had some busi ness with him; so I went up to the house, and found him dead, with his head mashed, lying on the cellar door, ami one foot caught un der him. I called the boys, and Charles Wench and the rest came up. I saw bloody footprints on the porch and one in the yard, between the house anil the tank. I left the ranch then and went to La Grange to notify Mrs. Olsen, Ivett's mother-in-law, and did not get back un til after the body had been moved. I did not see the Chinese cook Sunday afternoon. We ate supper by candie light. We had cards, music, dancing and a general good time Sunday, but all were on good terms, and there was no quarreling. The ranch is kind of a public place. People come and eat and feed their horses and go away and nc questions are asked. About twenty men were present that Sunday. The court at this point adjourned foi the noon recess. None of Olsen's rela tives were present in court, except his i brother Jake. It was reported in town today that or Wednesday evening there was a shoot ing affray on the Ivett ranch. A deal And dumb man, supposed by some to bt a detective, had been prowling arount the ranch for several days, and James Warren, one of the hands, epoke to Mrs. Ivett about it, and she gave him orders to drive him away. On Wednesday evening he saw him, and loaded up s shotgun and fired at him. The. man was running, and ti.3 charge missed him Warrants have been issued, but as yel the officers have not returned, ..and nc particulars have benin received. Chat les Wench was the first witness olnced .on the stand after the soon re cess. He testified substantially aa fol lows : "J have resided at Ivett'e and been in his employ for about thirty years, off and on. i" was with Olsen all day Saturelay previous to the murder of .Ivett. £ helped him dig a grave far a man who died on the ranch Friday. JJe stayed Saturday night tnd Sunday un iil about -J o'clock, when he left for Hnelling's. Sy.-ett ate supper wiih the men at tt.e lower house, and after supper, I thini: it was about tl o'caock, he smarted for tbe upper house, where he slept. I heard some one say: "Mr. Ivett, we want some wine? I don't know if they gat it. I left than for my cabin, which is between the upper and lower house. On Monday morning, on going to the upper house, I found Ivett lying on the norcli on the north side of the bowse, in a pool of blood, and Wood all over the wall and gate. He was lying on his side; one foot was caught in the cel lar door; his head-waa mashed in. I went in to his house and found a letter to his wife half-finished. His spectacles were on the letter, and the lamp was still burning. I found bloody tracks on the porch and ground near the body. I heard no disturbance at the house that night. I found a email lamp and cellar key lying near Ivett. His hat was near him in the blood. I remained with the body till the coroner came. I covered the body up with a sack but did not touch it, and allowed nothing to be dis turbed until the coroner came. We left everything as we found it, except blow ing out the lamp. I did not notice a piece of whip lying under Ivett." * THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1890. Crudentio Porteo, a Mexican, was then sworn. He said he talked English, but could not always explain himself. The district attorney said he thought he could get along without an interpreter, Porteo said: "I reside at New Year's diggings; started for Hornitos Sunday: stopped over at Ivett's all night Sunday night; arrived there at about 2 p. m.; stayed until Monday morning; got up early and went to Merced falls, aud was there when the news came that Ivett waa dead. I did not know he was dead until told so at the falls. I did not gc to Hornitos, but returned to Ivett's I saw Olsen at the ranch Sunday. He wore a large slouch hat broad brim ; wore a brown overcoat ant light woolen pants; saw him witfc his horse. He had a bundle, about six inches thick and fifteen inches long, tied to his saddle. I could not tell wh t it contained. The saddle had a broken horn. Olsen went to the cellar and got a drink of wine ; had not been at Ivett's for a month before." Witness then described the mysteri oos bundle. He gave the dimensions as above, and said it looked like a pair of overalls wrapped up. Thomas 0. Adams was then sworn. He said he had been at the ranch two days when Olsen came Friday. "Olsen came to see rue, and stayed with Ivett at the upper house; was in Olsen's company nearly all day Saturday. He wore a large broad-brimmed white cowboy hat; at the inquest he wore a different hat; he also wore a long over coat and brown pants. He left Sunday ! evening and said he was going to Bnell j ing, thee. home. Tvett told him to tell j mother that he got a letter from Sophie, Ivett's wife, and if she got better would be back soon. Ivett and Olsen then parted; Olsen went away, and Ivett went to his home. We were all having a jolly time, drinking wine, playing cards, music and dancing. I saw a Frenchman at the ranch Sunday morn ing." I Thomas Search, another old-tinier on the ranch, was sworn and testified to about the same facts as Adams had. 11. M. Lanley was sworn, and testified 1 that he saw Olsen Sunday evening, and that he had a similar bundle on his sad i die to the one heretofore described. Henry Latour was sworn and said: "I jam a blacksmith in Snelling; know Ol sen; saw him in Snelling the 7th inst.; found a miner's drilling hammer on the street, and he said it was his; gave it to him, and looked and found a pair of pinchers he had lost." R. A. McCann testified as to Olsen's I drees, hat and bundle. T. F. Griffith, one of the men who was j sent by the sheriff to search Olsen's j house, testified as follows: "On No vember 10th, under direction of Sheriff j War field, in company with John Gib bons and Robert Ballard, I went and searched Olsen's mother's house, near La Grange; found overalls in a room occupied by Frank Peterson, a Swede ; gave them to Ballard." Sheriff Warlield was sworn and iden tified the overalls shown in court as the j same ones. Frank Peterson was sworn: "Live at Olsen's; saw Bollard, Griffith and Gib ! bons on the 10th or 11th inst. at the i ranch ; did not see the overalls ; did not I tell Griffith or anybody they were j Olsen's; did not show them around." : As this testimony was just the oppo- I site from what the prosecution expected, | they had to impeach the witness and a I long argument ensued. Witness then I acknowledged that he did go to the I room with the officers; saw them take a pair of pants and shoes, but no overalls, j lie also denied telling them that the . overalls were Olsen's. i The district attorney explained why he ! was so particular in identifying the I overalls; he said he discovered what ap peared to be blood on them. That Dr. i Sherman had made a chemical analysis of these stains, and they proved to be human blood. Witness then said he slept in the room where the overalls were found, and kept his in this room. "I was at the ranch the night oi the 9th inst.; don't know w hen Olsen came home." | The court then adjourned until to morrow morning. AH H UNCI'S BACON Saved by the Opportune Arrival of the Police.

The Start To Be Made From The Needles Soon. The Trip as Planned AVill Occupy Somewhat Over Two Years. Godfrey Sykes and Charles McLean Will ; Attempt Thia in a Boat Twenty two Feet Over All. The boldest scheme ever hatched in the minds of sailors has beer, conceived at The Needles, in San Bernardino county, in this state, and steps are now ! being taken to put the scheme in opera- j tion. Godfrey Sykes and Charles Mc- Lean are the men whose bold brains I have planned the most hazardous trip j ever undertaken by men. They propose i to circumnavigate the globe in an open ! boat only twenty-two feet in length. They are now about to start, and the plan of their trip is thus given in the San Francisco Examiner: Thpy will launch their little craft on the Colorado river and pull down the river light to Yuma, where they will ballast and provision her and then make for the gulf below. Their trip, as roughly and briefly mapped out, will be as follows: Reach ing the Gulf of California at tbe month of the Colorado river, they will follow the Mexican and Central American • coasts to South America, down, to Ma : gellan straits, thence up the east coast las far as Cape St. Roqne. From Cape St. Rogue they will cross the Atlantic and go to Sierra Leone on the African ! coast, thence cast along the European ; coast to the British islands. They will then return through the Bay of Biscay into the Mediterranean sea, through the Suez canal ami Red sea to the Indian ocean, along the coast of China and Japan, passing Singapore, Hongkong ami Yokohama, up the Russian coast. Leaving the Russian coast at Petropol ofsky, they will cross the Pacific ocean ;at the Aleutian islands, and thence come down the coast of Alaska and Ore gon to San Francisco. They calculate that the trip, provided 'no unusual amount of bad luck over takes them, will occupy the best part of two and a hah years, and they hope to be back in time to attend the world's lair in Chicago. The boat in which these daring navi gators propose to make this trip around the world is 22 feet overjjdl, 20 feet keel, | and 7 feet I? inches beam. It is built after the Mackinaw pattern, though the lines are finer than those of the iWacki i naw boat, and there is more bulge amid i ships. The material used is well i seasoned selected Arizona pine, and she haa 21 strong steel ribs. She is provided ■ with four water-tight loclters for BtOW i ing books anil instruments, and two air chambers forward and aft capable of bearing up 600 pounds each out of j water. She has a six-foot deck forward and : the same size deck aft, which, with the j washboards, will be covered with heavy ; canvas and painted. Light, she draws 10 inches, and loaded and ballasted, 22 i inches. The craft is a double-ender and : weighs '.150 pounds. The sails are three ,in number, being a mainsail, foresail and jib, and are oi the Pound pattern, a i combination of topsail aud mainsail. Believing that the American plan of ; center-board is preferable, both for i speed and safety, the builders have I rigged her with one of boiler iron, with 1(i feet of surface, which gradually runs when in position from nothing forward to 2 feet aft. At present she will carry only 150 square feet of sail, but after ar rival into their tirst port on the coast j this is to be doubled. A sextant, barometer, compass, ehro • nometer and log-ship, with probably a photographic outfit, will comprise "the ; useful and scientific armament of the : boat, while a small condenser will be carried, to be used in case tire crew run out of water. It is calculated that she can be easily victualed for the two men for tour months. Besides the symmet rical and buoyant appearance of the little craft, the men claim that she will ! prove a fast sailer, and they propose to • win some money from the Britishers on I their trip through English waters. An other source of pride to them is the claim that she is the tirst seagoing boat built 7000 feet above sea level. The hazardous undertaking is not the result of a moment's thought. On tho contrary, both men have cherished the idea for years, and each only awaited meeting a man who would take the I same view of the matter as he did. In a "cow camp" in Arizona the two men j met more than a year ago, and there and ; then the journey was agreed tb. Charlea McLean, tbe elder of tbe two I men, is a native of Paisley, Scotland, | and is between thirty and thirty-one i years of age. He has had seven years' | experience before the mast in whaling ; and coasting vessels, and is an expert in ] sailing a small boat. He is a very quiet, | unobtrusive young man, and though re ; tiring and unassuming in conversation, I has at?, air of decision and determination j about him. He says he knows and ao- I predates the hardships which he will have to undergo, but he is confident of I success. "For years," said he, "I was planning i a trip of this kind, and I had it all laid ! out ready to be put into execution, but ; could find no one whom I thought was j just exactly Cue man to accompany me. 1 Finally I diiiitad into Arizona and"went into the cattie business, where 1 met | 'Red' Sykes. "One night, after a hard day's round j up, we lay in camp smoking and talk i ing, when I casually referred to my pet ' scheme." i " 'What's that, Charlie,' said Red, j 'do you want to coast it around the I world, too?' '■' 'Yes, I have dreamed of it. and thought of it for years.' — j " 'Then, my boy, we will put the scheme through, for I, too, have long desired to make such a trip, and you are the very man to go with inc.' " Thus was the compact entered into, and from that day until this they have worked and looked forward to the d.iy of sailing. Godfrey Sykes, familiarly called "Red" Sykes because of theauburn hue of his locks and the ruddy, rosy glow of his face, is a native of""Merrie Eng land," having been born in London twenty-seven years ago, He is agenius, and not unlike many geniuses, he is eccentric. His parents attempted to give him a thorough classical and liter ary education, and though, through im patience, he did not remain at college long enough to obtain hia degree, he ia a thorough scholar, be ing well up in philosophy, as tronomy, mathematics and Latin and Greek. Some years ago he took quite a fancy to navigation, and after studying it and learning all he could of it theoretically, he made four voyages around the world. In order to take ad vantage of his surroundings he did not ship before the mast, but would pay bis passage in vessels which did not carry passengers, and when out at sea would assist the officers in navigating their ves sel, thus putting into practice the theory which he had learned! Both men are decidedly in earnest, and determined to succeed, if success lies in their power. Both are handy at any kind of work, and both ore good navi gators. They begin their journey with a full realization of the many dangers and privations before them, but they are confident of succeeding. Should their littb vessel be capsized, she in so con structed that by removing the masts she Will right herself again, and though she should be filled with water she will not sink, and when bailed out is as good as before. From every port which the voyagers put into they will write back to their friends, and inform them in detail of their journey. Considerable interest is being taken in the enterprise here and in Western Arizona, and a great crowd w ill assemble at The Needles on,theday of their departure, to bid the intrepid sailors adieu and wish them godspeed.
