THE DISCOVERER OF HANCHETTE.
Bob Farrell Bobs Up Again With His Yarn. The Missing Man Hid in His Room in Sacramento. As Yet He Has Not Appeared in Public and there Seems Small Hope of His Doing; Ho—A Sense less Canard. By the Associated Press. The Associated Presa dispatch pub lished yesterday morning concerning H. Jay Hanchette, ex-city editor of the Hbrald and secretary of the chamber of commerce, who disappeared mysteri ously two years ago from Chicago, did not create much excitement in this oity, as nearly every one who read it con cluded that it was but a reproduction of the yarn, spun here some time ago by one Robert Farrell, and not worthy of belief. That Farrell is the author of the Btory is evidenced by a special dis patch received by the Herald from a reliable authority in Sacramento, yester day, and appended below. Farrell is the individual who baa bobbed up in Loa Augelea on several oc casions and pretended that he had dis covered the whereabouts of Hanchette, wae in correspondence with him, and that Hanchette would turn up in Loa Angeles ere long. To all entreaties on the part of the frienda and relativea of the missing man Farrell turned a deaf ear, assumed a mysterious air, and de clined to divulge the secret locked in hia breast. His last visit to this city was juat prior to the election, when he hung around the newspaper offices, posing aa the diacoverer of the long-lost Han chette and evidently seeking notoriety by having his name mentioned in con nection with the Hanchette mystery. Not succeeding very well in this, he finally took himself off, and thereby hangs a tale, which, if a atatement made to a Herald reporter by a firm of relia ble publishers who employed him for a portion of the time he was in this city as solicitor, be true, might get him in serious trouble should he ever return here. Well, it seems that he haa turned up in Sacramento and is revamping the story of the Hanchette discovery. At last accounts Mr. Hanchette had not yet turned up. Following is the telegram above referred to, which explains itself: Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 11.—If H. J. Hanchette is in thia city he ia well dis guised or ia keeping well in the shadows of the fog which haa hung like a pall over the city for two weeks. No such name appeara on the hotel registers, and no one appears to know anything of the missing man, except Robert Farrell. Farrell has secured an appointment ac watchman in the senate, through Sena tor Carpenter. Some days ago Farrell exhibited a tin-type likeness of Han chette to Captain Barrett of Los Angelea and informed him that Hanchette would be in the city iv a fefc days with a view of clearing up the mystery eurrounding his disappearance. , Te a reporter Farrel this morning said : "Confidentially, I will tell you that Hanchette arrived in this city last night. He is now closeted in my room with one of his Los Angelea friends. He iB de termined that no one shall discover his identity until the proper moment. The confidence he has imposed in me was not voluntary. I accidentally discov ered him in tbe northern part of the state in the employ of a large concern, and was about to cause his arrest. To avert this be told me his story, and it was reasonable that I agreed to keep his secre.." In the course of the conversation.Far rell said Hanchette's own wife would not recognize bim if she should meet bim on the street. He is clean shaved and wears colored glasses. Overdue Teasels. Port Townsend, Wash, Jan. ll— Anxiety is manifested is shipping cir cles at the non-arrivr l of the British ship St. Monian, nearly 200 days from Santos, Brazil.

The German bark Emm Pasha, which sailed from Iquique, October 18th, for this port, has not yet arrived, although vessels sailing subsequently arrived some weeks ago. Bismarck Implicated.

Husted, while serving his sixth term aa speaker of the assembly of the state ol New York, writes: "Stats cf New York, Assembly Chamber,) Albany, Jan. 16, ISSO. j J desire once more to bear my testimony tn the value ol Allcock's Porous Piasters. I have used them for twenty-five years past, and can conscientiously commend them as the best external remedy that I have known. Years ago, wnen thrown from a carriage anil seriously injured, I give them a thorough trial. In a very short time the pain that I was suffering disappeared, and within a week I was entirely relieved. On another occasion, when suffering from a severe cough, which threat ened pulmonary difficulties, which I was rec ommended to go to Florida to relieve, I deter mined lo test the plasters again. I applied them to mv chest and between my shouldar blades, and In less than a fortnight was en tirely cured. On still another occasion, when suffering Irom an attack of rheumatism in the shoulder to such an extent that I could scarcely raise my arm, I again resorted to the pla-'-sm. and within a few days the rheumatism en tirely disappeared. I have them constantly by me, whether at heme or abroad. My family as well as myself have lounl them to be a sover eign remedy both for external and internal troubles. 1 never had butone kidney difficulty In my life, and the application ol the planters cured me in a week. I desire, as I said before, to bear my testimony in a public way to their e(Hc ty and I know ol no better way of doing it than by giving my personal experience."

A DEMOCRATIC JOINT CAUCCB ON LIBRARY TRCSTBES. Billa for the Repeal of the Railroad Commission Introduced In Bath Houßes-T.egiNl.Uive Notes. Sacramento, Jan. 11.—A joint Demo cratic caucus was held tonight to nom inate a board of five state library trus tees, to take their seats March 1, 1894. A ticket had been prepared bearing the nameß of R. P. Hammond, San Fran cisco; Ed Leake, Yolo; Dr. M. Gard ner, Sacramento; F. T. Baldwin, San Joaquin; W. 8. Green, Colusa. But this met with some opposition, and Curtis Lindley of San Francisco wae se lected in place of Hammond. It is ex pected that a joint ballot on trustees will be taken Friday. The trustees will then elect a librarian to succeed Per kins. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. In the senate today a number of bills were introduced, among them one by Hart to create the counties of Putnam and Buena Vista out of a portion of Tulare connty, with the county seats at Porterville and Tulare; by Gesford, a bill making it tbe duty ot the legislature to prescribe railroad rates and fares, passengers rates cot to exceed 2 cents a mile. THE ASSEMBLY. , Schlesinger of San Francisco pre sented a resolution providing for the ap pointment of a special committee of five by the speaker to investigate the act of the railroad commissioners, as to whether they have performed their du ties and have adopted a proper schedule of rates and fares aa contemplated by law, the committee to have power to send for persona and papers and to pre sent articles of impeachment against any commissioner direlect in hia duty. Mathews introduced a joint resolu tion to refund money to certain settlers on government landa in Fresno, Monte rey and San Benito counties. Godchaux introduced in the house the ! same bill as presented by Gesford in tbe : senate, abolishing the board of railroad j commissioners and empowering the leg- j islature to fix the rules and lures. It provides that for passengers not more than two cents per mile shall be charged. ! For freight and merchandise tbe charges | are specified in what is called the "Cali- j fornia distance tariff," adapted and is- ! sued by the western classification com mittee, which took effect Januaty 1, 1893, and contains 2280 items of charges for distances from five miles to 1000. Anderson introduced a resolution pro viding for a constitutional amendment abolishing the poll tax after January, 1895. Androus of Los Angeles presented a concurrent resolution, which waa referred to the public land com mittee, reciting tbat applicants for the purchase of lieu lands had been informed somehow of the legal status of the lands yeara before the secretary of the interior made pub lic his decision, in which he holds that settlers and buy ere from the state have no title to such lands, although they have resided upon the lands many years, and made improvements valued at about 1100,000. It asks that the committee on public land be directed to ascertain if the eecretary of the in terior quotes the law correctly with reference to the act of congress granting such lands to California; if tbe state surveyor-general was in fault in advis ing settlers that their applications were legal; also if settlers have a claim against the state for the amounts paid for their lands. BBN BVTLBR'S DRHISR. His Bnd Was Sndden an* Without Ap parent Fain. Washington, Jan. 11.—Gen. Benja min F. Butler, whose sudden death early this morning caused a shock of sur prise, was about the capitol yeaterday as usual. In going about he took a cold and coughed some during the afternoon, but appeared cheerful as usual. He ate his Bupper and retired at about 11 o'clock. An hour later his body servant waa awakened by his coughing and went to him, finding that he had gone to the bath-room. Butler said he coughed up mucous, mingled with blood. He seemed to think nothing of it, however, and retiring again, dismissed tbe servant. An hour later the servant was again aroused by his heavy breathing, and found Butler in a very bad way. A physician was sent for, and on arriving at once discov ered that tbe general waa at the point of death from pneumonia. He died almost at once. His end waa apparently pain less. The certificate of death Bays he died from heart failure, superinduced by acute pneumonia. His nieces, Mrs. Dunn and Miss Ste vens, who kept house for him, were at his bedside when death came. Tbe in terment will take place at Lowell, Mass , in the family lot beaide the remains of his wife and son, Benjamin, who died in 1876.

Reasons Why the Protestants Have V . / <v:..:..l o ..... : XW VfiiiVJttl otauuiu^t The Opinion In Full Which Was Ren dered Yesterday to the Super visors by District Attor ney Dillon. District Attorney Dillon yesterday filed an opinion with the board of super visors ia regard to the protests of ex- Justices of the Peace L. Stanton and P. E. King, against giving up their offices, about which matter there has been con siderable talk. The quo warranto pro ceedings spoken of heretofore by the justices have not been commenced. The opinion of the district attorney, which ie as followe, shows what he thinks of the points advanced: L. Stanton, esq., and P. E. King, eeq., claiming to be justices of the peace, and F. P. Hardie, claiming to be a con stable of this township, on the 31st of December, 1892, filed their pro teats with the county clerk againet giving up and surrendering the dockets, papers and tiles in their poesesaion pertaining to aaid township upon the ground "tbat the act of the board of supervisors on the 2d day of June, 1892, by which aaid supervisors attempted to charge and create a new township, known as Los Angeles town ship, waß illegal and without authority of law, and that there ia no legal or authorized person elected or qualified to succeed Baid justice, and that said office ia not now, nor has it been at any time since the election aud qualification of said proteetant, vacant." Each of the above protestants rely upon the same ground, It is further eet forth. in the protest "that one Grove S. Bartholomew threat ens to, and aa protestant believes, will prosecute aaid protestant under section 76 of the penal code of the state of Cal ifornia if piotestant refuses to surrender up the said office, and deliver up the papers and files of said justice to eaid Bartholomew." Section 7G ot the penal code iB as fol lows: "Every officer whose office is abolished by law or who after the expir ation of the term for which he may be appointed or elected, or after he has re signed or been legally removed from office, wilfully and unlawfully withholds or detains from his successor, or other person entitled thereto, tbe records, pa pers, documents or other writing apper taining or belonging to hia office, or mu tilates, destroys or takes away the same, id punishable by imprisonment in tbe state prison not leea than one nor more than 10 years." Tbe order of tbe board of supervisors of June 2, 1892 (minutes, vol. 14, p. 546), is ac follows: "That the present town ship boundarieeof Loa Angeles township and Los Angeles city township in this county be, and the same are hereby changed, and a new township therefrom ia hereby created by uniting and con solidating tbe territory within said townships into one township." '1 he power of the board to make tbat j order is found in section 25, subdivision |2, statutes of 1891, p. 300, and is as fol ! lows: The boards of supervisors, in their re spective counties, have jurisdiction and power, under auch limitations and re strictions aa are prescribed by law. Subdivision 2. To divide the coun ties into townships, . . . change She aame, and create others, as con venience requires. The only limitation upon this power is found in section 5 of the act of March 11,1891, page 3, which is aa follows: Neither boards of supervisors . . . shall have the power to alter the boun daries of any township ... so ac to change the boundaries of any sena torial or assembly district as constituted and defined in this act. Section 58, (statutes of 1891, page 314), provides: That in townships containing cities in which city justices are elected tbere shall be but one justice of the peace. The same section ' further provides tbat tbe board of supervisors of each county, on or before tbe first Monday in September, 1891, and thereafter as pub lic convenience shall require, shall di vide their respective counties into town ships for the purpose of electing justices of the peace and constables. The respective terms of office of the above protestants would have expired by law, independent of the above acta of the legislature, on the 2d day of Jan uary, 1893. Section 9 of article 11 of the constitu tion bears upon this point, and from it I quote the following language: Nor shall the term of any such officer be ex tended beyond the period for which he is elected or appointed. August 22, 1892 (Mm. vol. 15, p. 139) the board entered a resolution ac fol lows : Resolved, That L. Stanton be and in hereby appointed justice of the peace of Los Angeles township; but in my opin ion that appointment would not con tinue him in office after the Ist of Janu ary. 1893. Upon the foregoing statement of the factß, and the law applicable thereto, I am of the opinion : First. That the board of supervisors had power to change the boundaries and consolidate the two townships in mau ner and form above entitled. Second. That neither the eaid L. Stanton, esq , or P. E. King, esq., now legally hold the office of justice of the peace, nor does the eaid F. P. Hardie now legally hold the office of constable in said township. Third. That the said Grove S. Bar tholomew is a legally elected justice of the peace of said township, and that he is entitled to the possession arid custody l.oat. unce lost, it in difficult to restore tlie Oair.

THE THEATICAL SITUATION. Manager Wyatt Executes a Fine Stroke of Business. For some days past rumors of an im portant change in the theatrical situa tion in thiis city have been current, which were to the effect tbat Manager Wyatt of the Los Angeles theater had secured the Frohman-Hayman series of attractions for that bouse for a term of years. Mr. Wyatt was questioned about it yesterday and at first attempted to evade admitting the fact, but when shown by the reporter tbat the informa tion came from a reliable source stated that the report waa correct, a contract having been made with Messrs. Froh man and Hay man to have all their own companies and all the companies man aged" by their agency under the charge of Mr. Juliua Cohn play at the Lob An geles theater. More than that, Mr. Wyatt stated that he had closed a con tract with Manager Stock well of San Francißco to play all hie bookings for two years. To a great extent the Frohman- Hayman agency has a monopoly of the booking of all traveling companies, and the resulta of the contracts can be judged. It was stared at the time that Mr. Perry tbe owner of the theater secured Mr. Wyatt's services that the selection could not have been improved upon, and the results show the state ment to be correct. Mr. Perry ia conatantly improving hia beautiful houae and when the further alterations be will make are completed, it will be a perfect theater in all particu lars. Kerns vs. White. Editors Hbbald : A short time since I saw in the San Francisco Examiner a statement that T. J. Kerns (Populist) of Los Angelea county, and a member of the present legislature from said county, was under no obligations to vote for Stephen M. White for United States senator. It may be true that Mr. Kerne ia under no obligations, either expressed or implied, to the Examiner, but I am here to say most emphatically that he is to bis constituency pledged and prom ised from every Democratic rostrum upon which he appeared to cast bis vote for "our Steve" for United States senator in the event of his election. As Demo crats we claim we elected him (Kerne), and as Democrats we shall hold him res ponsible to the full performance and execution of those pledges and promises. Tbe Democrats, at least, ani the people generally of this county, have an eye directed to the faithful performance of those promises so cheerfully volunteered, and should they fail to materialize, hereafter politically tbere will be some blood upon the moon. I know whereof I apeak, having made, in company witb Mr. Kerna, the campaign. Respectfully J. N. Brewer, Vernon. Cholera at Hamburg.
