Nothing Learned About H.
Jay Hanchette.
President Wells of the Chamber
of Commerce Talks.
He Does Not Regard the Disappear
ance as Serious.
He Thinks the Missing Secretary Hay
Be ln Texas—Another Beport That
He Is In Yellowstone Park.
The chamber of commerce rooms were
besieged all day yeaterday by persons
anxious to know if anything had been
learned aa to the whereabouts of the
missing secretary, H. Jay Hanchette.
Up to the present writing, however,
nothing has been learned.
In an interview with a Herald re
porter yeaterday, C. M. Wells expreaaed
himself as follows:
"I have not, nor do I regard Mr. Han
chette's silence and disappearance as
serious. In a conversation with me a
short time previous to my departure, he
talked seriously of going to Texas to look
after aome property there to which he
and hie brothera were heirs, and which
was in the possession of thoße who had
no right to it. Some correspondence had
passed between the parties, but from
what he told me I judged
that his chances in the matter
were so small that the trip was
not worth while, and I used all my pow
ers of persuasion to dissuade him from
making the trip. I think it likely, how
ever, from the fact that he was seen to
take a train for St. Louis, that he sud
denly decided to make the trip. In
Texas he may be at a distance from tel
egraph offices and newaoapers, and may
not soon hear of the fact that he is sup
posed to have met with foul play, not
withstanding the wide publicity given
to the matter by the Associated Preas
diapatchea of Sunday night. I shall not
regard the matter aa serioua for a week
at leaßt."
A telegram was received at the cham
ber of commerce from C. D. Hanchette
yeaterday, asking if Mr. Hanchette's
baggage had arrived here aa yet. A
constant watch has been kept at the
railroad station for aome daya, but the
baggage certainly has not arrived.
A Herald reporter yeaterday visited a
married sister of Mr. Hanchette'a, who
lives out at Cahuenga. but her informa
tion was not so recent aa that already
obtained, her laat letter from her brother
being dated about the Ist of the month.
A Chicago Dispatch Says Mr. Hanchette
Is Alive and Well.
Chicago, May 18.—There is little
doubt in the minds of the police that H.
Jay Hanchette, the missing manager of
the California orange carnival, is alive
and well and in Yellowstone Park. Al.
Beaumont, the doorkeeper of the car
nival, has direct information that it was
Hanchette'a intention to spend a month
in Yellowstone Park to restore his phys
ical energy, which was run down from

Chicago, May 18.—The whereabouts

are being made in railroad circles. A

To the Editors of The Hbbald, Los Angeles:
Gentlemen—The following facts may be of
benefit to the public:
For three years I suffered much from what I
was led to believe was Blind JHlet, and 1 had
recourse to several so-called specialist doctors,
without any beneficial result whatever. As day
after day my sufferings only increased, I at
last consulted Dr. Zabala, of this city, at his
office, "Ducommun lllock," who, after a formal
examination, at once informed me that the
cause of my suffering was a Fistula, which an
operation would be necessary to remove. This
operation he performed on the 23d day of April,
last, most skillfully and successfully. The
result has been so satis£ictory, that I feel as if
ten years had been added to my life, and in
gratitude for the relltf afforded me, I publish
this, my testimony, in favor of tbe said Dk.
Zabala, for his able and intelligent treatment
of my case. Yours truly,
Prof. A. Cuyas, A. M.

Testimony Against Collector
Berry's Vigilance.
Cannon, Muskets and Soldiers
Seen on Board.
Three Men Who Will Testify to
Those Statements.
The San Diego Sun Calls the Matter the
Government's Cue Against the
Collector—What Three Men
Dlseovered on Board
the Steamer.
The fact that the steamer Itata had
arms and soldiers on board when in San
Diego harbor, has been disputed by Col
lector Berry of that port, and affirmed
by Marshal Gard. The marshal has
maintained that if Berry had done hia
duty in the premises, the affair would
have had a different result. In connec
tion, the following taken from the San
Diego Sun, of yeaterday, will be of
Captain Keith of the pilot boat Dawn,
Ed. Jones, the day carpenter on the
Itata, and A. Blair, the night carpenter,
were aubpoenaed today to appear before
the federal grand jury and will go to
Los Angelea tomorrow'in charge of Dep
uty Marshal Crawford. They promise
to be interesting and important wit
Captain Keith will testify, it is said,
that the Itata was a man-of-war, giving
circumstantial data, which will com
pletely upset the story of the Collector
of the Port J. R. Berry. Captain Keith
knowa all about the anna and munitions
of war on board the vessel and the num
ber of men who were concealed in the
The two carpenters who were em
ployed to make certain needed repairs
to the interior of the boat very soon ob
tained a knowledge of what was going
on, but were pledged to keep their
mouths shut while the Itata remained
in port. They came across several
heavy guns covered up with canvas, and
saw 260 stands of new rifles and 200
stands of old ones. Their work also
brought them into proximity to,. the
men concealed in the hold. These were
Chilean sailors or marines, and they
were packed in under the bows like so
many sardines, with little ventilation
except what they got through a hole in
the forecastle deck. This bole was con
cealed from outside view by a great
coil of rope shaped like a bee
hive with a small orifice in
the top. To make the hole larger
a little of the rope waa unwound and
soup and other eatables were lowered to
the men below. The collector's and
marshal's deputies passed by thia coil
frequently, but were too attentive to the
courteous and friendly conversation of
the captain to be mindful of it.
At the time the carpenters aaid noth
ing and cawed wood, but their lips are
now unsealed, and they promise to
strengthen what has become the govern
ment's case against the collector very
materially. Besides giving thia evidence
they will testify that a tackle arrange
ment had been deviaed by which two of
the heaviest|guna could be instantly
raised from the hold, upon an alarm , be
ing given, and brought into uae on the
The captain of one of the steamers
that visits thia port tells the Sun that,
under a new law or ruling the customs
officials are obliged to make a thorough
search of every incoming vessel, even
removing sheathing where it is neces
sary in the search for contraband goods.
Thia was the understanding of Marshal
Gard, and he supposed when the Itata
waa turned over to him that she had
had the thorough inspection required
by law. Had he known the facts in the
case he would have put a company of
soldiers on board and telegraphed for
the Charleston.
The Mantle of the Late Dr. Paddock
Falls on Phillips Brooks' Shoulders.
Dr. Phillips Brooks, who was chosen re
cently by the Episcopal diocesan conven
tion sitting at Boston to succeed the kite
Dr. Paddcck as bishop of Massachusetts, is
a giant physically as well as mentally, for
be is more than six feet tall, and is ac
counted one of the best pulpit orators in
America. Dr. Brooks was born ln Boston
Dec. 13, 1835. Graduating at Harvard in
1855, he turned
his attention to
theology and at
tended the Episco
pal Seminary at
Alexandria, Va.
He was graduated
there in 1859, and
the same year be
came rector of the
Church of the Ad
vent in Philadel
phia. Three years
later he went to
the Church of the
Holy Trinity, in
the same city, and
in 1869 he returned
to Boston. He be
came rector of
Trinity in that
city, and has made
it one of tbe best known nouses oi woranip
in the country.
As a preacher Dr. Brooks towers far
above most of his fellows. He is distinctly
Low Church. In spite of this his wonder
ful eloquence has made him eagerly sought
for by all parties. Since becoming rector
of Trinity Dr. Brooks has refused a pro
fessorship at Harvard, and in 1886 he re
fused the offer to make him assistant
bishop of Pennsylvania.
His sermons have been printed, and the
volumes have a large sale. He has pub
lished several books, among which "The
Influence of Jesus," which appeared in
1879, and "Baptism and Confirmation," in
1880, are notable examples.

An Alleged Plot to Secure an Insane
Man's Property.
A man named J. D. Walker was
brought in from San Pedro last evening
and booked at the police station. Walk
er is an old miner from Arizona and has
quite a large amount of property. Hie
brother, who delivered him to the of
ficers, tells a strange story legarding the
unfortunate man's condition and recent
experiences. Walker, it seems, had a
stroke of paralysis some few years ago,
and since then his mind has at times
wandered. According to this brother's
statement these attacks come on with
the approach of hot weather, but dur
ing cool and pleasant weather Walker
is perfectly sane. The brother claims
that of late the patient, who has been
in Arizona, has been doing
well,' and that the present at
tack was brought on through a
deliberate scheme on the part of out
siders to get hold of Walker's money.
Walker was locked up in an asylum at
Tucson, and driven into a state of fur
ious insanity, finally being rescued by
his brother, who brought him to Los
For a little while he seemed to be
quiet enough, but last night began to
smash the furniture, and was taken to
the station. He will probably be sent
to Napa as soon as he can be examined
before a commission.
