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." *
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
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.

cotpmotion in Duncombe alley attracted

The officers succeeded in rescuing him
from the angry mob, and Hung was

iTo Circumnavigate the Globe
In a Boat.
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
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
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.
