Why Dr. Sweany Has Left
the City.
It is Said That She Has a Little
Amount of 95,200 Against
Probably there are a good many people
in the city who are wondering why Dr.
Sweany, the medical specialist, who con
ducted an establishment in the P.net
Building, 31 North Main street, is no
longer in his office. If there are any who
are awaiting his return they will, in all
probability, watch and wait in vain, for
the gentleman in question has hied to
the far North, where the climate is
cooler and the scope for his operations
more extensive.
Dr. Sweany came to this city a couple
of years ago and dropped into a nest lit
tle fortune. His waiting rooms were
also filled with patents, and the Doctor's
bank account became more and more
plethcric as the days rolled by. He was
not a man who would be liable to inspire
love at first sight in the maidenly breast,
for he was one of those individuals who
are popularly described as having been
behind the door when nature was dis
tributing her charms. He had win
ning ways, though; at least, such
was the case in one instance
for a widow, who had been left a few
thousand by her dear departed, became
enamoured of him, and set siege to his
heart with lovo darts well sharpened by
her previous experience. So often has
the elder Weller'a advice to his son
Sammy of ' bevare of vidders," been
bruited about that it has become a mat
ter of general knowledge, but the doctor
heeded it not, and met his admirer half
way. She took up her residence in the
same building where tbe doctor
dwelt, and although a strict watch
was kept over them by the proprietor.
Nothing wrong could be traced to t heir
doors, although it was generally conceded
that they were living together. Dr.
Sweany, about this time, began to experi
ence one of those reverses of fortune
which are likely to fall in any quarter.
His business began to fall away, and at
last he was unable, at least he said he
was, to pay the rental of his rooms. The
landlord was, however, obliging, and
allowed the account to run along for
three months, at the end of which time
the doctor announced that he was going
•way on a trip north.
"must PAY CP."
Mr. Baugh, the proprietor of the house,
was determined, however, that his tenant
should not go off in that manner, if pre
vention could possibly be obtained, but
in response to the threats of prevention
Sweany remarked that "it was impossible
to get blood out of a turnip," and that he
had no money. He offered, however, to
give some mortgages in his possession in
lieu of cash, and these were finally ac
cepted, and he packed his trunk and de
The details of his parting with his lady
lore are unknown save to the principals,
bat it was evidently a very affecting af
fair, for the doctor's voice was choked
with emotion as he shouted a final
"adios" from the window of the coupe
which was to haul him to the station.
His lady love became very unsettled
after he had gone, and the fever of dis
content, which had been sown
in her veins, broke out one
morning, for site gave Mr. Baugh
notice that she was also about to leave.
Out of curioiity one of the inmates of the
house searched for her objective point,
and discovered that she was on tbe doc
tor's trail. From a statement that has
been noised about during the last few
days, it would appear that she has good
reasons for following him up. Although
not positively known, it apoears that he
carried away with him $6,200 of her
money, whether as a loan or
not it cannot, of course, be said.
At any rate, she is evidently
running him to earth, and the outcome
of the chase will probably get publicity
in the quarter where she "kills."
Mr. Baugh has had a good deal of
trouble with the mortgages Dr. Sweany
left him. One of them proved to be
utterly worthless, and another has been
cashed after great bother and expense.
He says that when he makes up his
books this month, he will enter the bal
ance doe him- from the Doctor in the
"Bad Debts" account.
The Ceremonies Which Are Observed
iv Its Celebration.
The feast of the Passover, which com
menced on Monday at sunset, will con
clude on Tuesday next, when the final
services will be held. It is the custom
lor all members of Hebrew families to
assemble under one roof during Passover,
and great is the grief of any who are un
able to be present. When all are about
the table the head of the family appears,
arrayed in death garments, and the cere
mony begins. A cup of wine is drank as
a welcome to the festival. After this the
paterfamilias washes his hands. Some
of the herbs are then dipped in salt water
and distributed to those at the table with
a benediction for the fruits of the earth.
The top cake of matza is broken and
half of it is concealed, to bo burn ad on
the follow ing year. The other half and
tbe bone and the egg are held up, and in
a prescribed form the father explains
to his son the significance of the
Passover, with a review of the
Bufferings of Israel in Egypt. Af
ter this a hymn of joy is
recited, a blessing invoked, and a second
cup of wine is drunk. Then all rise and
wash their hands. Blessings are pro
nounced over three cakes of matza, anH
the master of the house eats two small
pieces reclining in his chair. More herbs
mre eaten, and then a regular supper is
served. After the supper small pieces of
a cake of matza are eaten, a glats of wine
is drunk and a grace pronounced. A cup
of wine is then poured out for tbe prophet
Elijah, and for a time thereafter every
body keeps silence. The door of the
house is opened, that tits expected Messiah
may enter freely and find a ready wel
come, should it be the appointed time of
his coming. A fourth cup of wine is
drank, with a great deal of recitation of
hyms and historic incidents. The cere
mony is concluded by singing the paschal
He la mighty. He will rebuild His home
Quick* in our daya speedily
itoA build, God build, O build this hoase
A time of general recreation ensues
after the hymn, and a feature often in
troduced for amusement is a hunt for
the mmttm. The paterfamilias bides the
piece reserved for the next year's burn
ing, and offers a prize to the child who
shall discover it. Other plays are in
dulged in until the hour for retiring. In
ancient days there was a confusion in tie
calendar by which some of the Jews
were not certain of the exact date (a
which Passover should be celebrated. It
was accordingly celebrated on two suc
cessive days, and in orthodox congrega
tions this custom still prevails. The
paschal Bupper, therefore, was eaten not
only on Monday evening but on Tuesday
also, and the ceremonies in the syna
gogues were repeated for the same rea
son. Tuesday morning the same people
who had gathered at the Bynt
gegue on Monday evening were there
again to listen to the reading of the
law, the "Thorah," or the Pentateuch.
The service began with the singing of
hymns and the recitation of prayerp.
This time every member of the
congregation wore a gown of black,
with a broad white band on the
back and front, and a tall hat. After
the singing of many hymns and the
recitation of prayers, the cantor or rabbi
went into the pulpit to produce the sacred
scrolls, upon which are written the five
books in the Bible that constitute the
Hebrew law. The ceremony was at
tended with a great deal of formality and
recitation before the curtain was drawn
away from the ark. Two shields were
then revealed, each of the finest work
manship, and bearing on the face a panel
on which the commandments are in
scribed. Behind these shields were the
scrolls. A procession was formed from
tbe pulpit to the reading desk, two mem
bers of the congregation bearing the
shields. The scrolls are of the finest
parchment, rolled up on spindles
as in tho olden times. The law
requires that the five books shall be
written on them in absolutely correct
Hebrew, without a blot or blemish of any
kind. If, in transcribing the law, the
writer makes an error in as much as a
single letter the whole Ecroll is destroyed
and the work begun again. The scrolls
were placed upon the reading desk, and
five members of the congregation were
selected to read the Thorah from them.
The readers rushed their work at a very
rapid rate, but it took them more than
two hours to complete it, and meanwhile
the entire congregation remained to
listen devoutly to the familiar tale.
When it was concluded the scrolls were
returned to the ark with ceremonies sim
ilar to those which marked their produc
tion. Passover lasts eight days, count
ing the extra day that allows for a mis
take in the calendar. No services were
held in the synagogue during the middle
three days.
A Santa Ana Election Which la Be-
lug tJonteated.
James W. Layman commenced suit in
the Superior Court yesterday, against
Geo. T. Insley and Theo. Lacy, to con
test their right to hold the offices to
which they were elected at Santa Ana,
on tbe Bth of April. The complaint sets
forth that on that date Geo. T. Insley
and J. 0. Nichols ran for City Marshal,
and Theo. Lacy and G. A. Edgar ran for
the Treasurership. Eight hundred and
fifty votes were cast. The contestant
further states that a pink ballot paper
was furnished by the Secretary of State,
and those voting for Edgar and Nichols
used this color, 300 ballots being cast for
Nichols and 250 for Edgar. Insley
did not receive more than 172
votes on pink paper, nor Lacy more
than 200. There appeared at the polls,
however, a blue ballot on which the
names of Insley and Lacy were printed.
This paper was not furnished by the
Secretary of State, and contestant ob
jected to the casting of ballots of this
color. His protest was not heeded, and
the blue ballots were received and count
ed and the Santa Ana Trustees declared,
as a result, that Insley and Lacy were
elected to the respective offices of Mar
shal and Treasurer. Contestant claims
that the blue ballots should not have
been counted, and asks the Court to de
clare that the other parties were elected.
The contest will be heard on May 6th.
Tin- Stockton l.lue Will Connect
With the Ctah Road.
It is now said that the Stockton,
Fresno and Southern Road, which is to
be built at once, according to the state
ments of its backers, will connect directly
with this city by means of the Los Ange
les and Salt Lake Road. By the plans at
prosed set forth, the road will reach
Merced, Fresno, Centersville and Bak
erefield, and then connect with
the Los Angeles line. It is
claimed that fifty miles will be
in operation by September Ist, but the
line is liable to receive big opposition
from the Southern Pacific. Mr. Hunt-
ington has already announced that he
intends to make a big tight with them,
for he says he will extend his San Joaquin
line frcam Oakdale south. The new com
pany is, however, reported to have strong
financial oacking, and announces its in
tention of staying in the field.
