WEDNESDAY JUNE 30, 1875.
A Los Angeles Beat Caught.
We rind the following in the Call of
the 25th:
Alexander Craig, a confidence oper
ator, who, for a number of years, has
been engaged in victimizing citizens
of this State, was brought up from
Ban Mateo yesterday and lodged in
the City Prison, en route for Fairfield,
Solano county, where he is to serve a
six months' term of imprisonment for
having swindled a man named Cham
berlain out of a sum of money, by
falsely re presenting himself as a Ma
son in distress.
Last evening the Call's criminal
news detective had a conversation
with tlie prisoner on the subject of the
crime he had committed, after which
Craig said: •
"Look here; some of these papers
have beeu showing me up in a very
bad light, and have tried to make it
appear that I was in the habit of
swindling the poorer classes of people
and those lacking intelligence, and
that I was obtainiug money under
false pretences from newsboys. Now,
I wish you would state that all this is
false, for my operations have been witli
citizens of this State who are known
as among the most intelligent and
wealthy."
"How long have you been in this
business?"
•Well, since '67," replied Craig. "In
that year I was teaching school at
what is now called Downeyville, Los
Angeles county; butpeoplesoon found
what my game was, and up went my
situation. By the way, talkitig about
Downeyville, puts me in mind that J
beat ex-Gov. Downey out of $250—
just borrowed the mouey, you know.
I also beat a man named Workman, a
big wine dealer down in Los Angeles,
out of $65ti. Those are the kind of
men I went after. Why, among my
victims I can name Michael Reese,
Wm. G. Ralston, ex-Gov. Stanford, ex-
Gov. Haight, Charles McLane, James
Lick and Ben Holladay, and I could
number many more if I took time to
think."
"Did you obtain much money from
these persons?"
"Let me see," replied the prisoner;
"there was Reese; I got $60 from him:
borrowed it for three months; told
him that I was an intimate frieud of
of one of his friends, and that I want
ed a little money to go to Oregon, as I
was without funds. I tell you what,
I've done a good deal of talking to get
money, but to get that money from
Reese was the toughest job I ever un
dertook. It took three hours of solid
talk to get him to yield. He let me
have it, though, without interest.
Then there's Ralston. I told him that
I was Col. A. Livingstone of Ken
tucky, aud got $40 from him. Stan
ford loaned me $30 upon some repre
sentation I made to him. Ex-Gov.
Haight let me have Sls on the repre
sentation that I was an ex-member of
the Legislature of Kentucky. C. Mc-
Lane also advanced me $15 and James
Lick let me have $35. Ben. Holladay
gave me $40 and a pass on one of his
steamers upon some representation I
made to him."
"Didn'tyou raise considerable money
by the Masonic dodge?" asked the de
tective.
"Well, no;" replied Craig; "not so
much as people represent; but I'll tell
you what, I had a good time with the
money I did get, and was well treated
wherever I went. On one occasion I
went to ono of your county officials
here, and he treated me as if I was a
second King Kalakaua. He took me
to the theatre and got a private box
for me, treated me to oysters and
champagne; but when he found out
that I was a beat, how his chops did
drop!"
"Who was that?"
"Well," said Craig, slowly,"! would
rather not tell Just now; but PI! tell
you what you can say, that after I fin
ish my term in Fairfield I intend to
turn over a new leaf aud lead an hon
est life."
An officer having business with the
prisoner came up at this time and
the conversation with Craig termin
ated.
"Coal-Oil Johnny."
The country is familiar with the
petrol! uqi buhble of years agoj how
men rose in the morning beggars, and
retired at night millionaires; how na
bobs became mendicants in the breath
of a wind. One of the heroes of those
notable days is Johnny Steele, or
•"Coal-Oil Johnny," as he is now fa
miliarly called. His history is known
to all newspaper readers, and they
will remember how he went to bed
one night a laborer at $20 a month,
and awoke in the morning the heir
of the richest oil well in Venango
county. He didn't know what to do
with the money which flowed from
his well. He it was who purchased a
hotel in Philadelphia at extrvagant
figures, and gave it away the next
day; who would buy up a dance house
at a big price for the piivilege of run
ning it one night; who would pur
chase a fancy team' use it once, and
give it away; who bought a minstrel
troupe, and ran it a whole season for
the fun of it; who never refused to
lend money, nor ask its return.
He stepped from penury, through one
million and a half of dollars, back to
penury again, iv sixteen short months
Then he came West; and now he is
at work with a gang of bridge build
ers in Shelby county, down on the
Rock Island road, at a salary of one
hundred and seventy-five cents a day.
He is jjust as happy and contented
with his frugal fare and lowly lot aB
when he basked in the smiles of For
tune's favor . Hia wife clings to him
in adversity with true-hearted love,
and accepts the situation with all the
grace which characterizes a noble
woman. She joined his fortunes
when sunshine gilded his path; she
now seeks to make his pathway bright
beneath the shadows of adversity.
Their home ls at Dunlap. Johnny
says many of the stories of his waste
ful extravagance are false. His re
verses came from loans made to frieads
who failed to repay them. A broken
bank carried down $120,000 at one
swoop, and another bank took $40,000.
Out of the wreck of the latter he hopes
to get euough to get his good wife a
beautiful dress aud a nice new house.—
