TWO CONFIDENCE OPERATORS.
vThe Police Yesterday Make an Important Capture. H Queer Story of Men Who Live by Gulling tho Innocent, %hey Advertised for Clerks • Without Any Experience—Establishing a It much of a San Fran elaoo Concern, Police Captain Roberts and Detectives Auble and Beneon yesterday morning arrested O. Mellequoid alias C. Toland alias H. O. Parker, also G. W. Crowell •lias Hood. The men were at 119K West First atreet, and were conducting an alleged employment office, which they stated • was a branch of their San Francißco | "office. When the officers entered the men were seated behind a Bmall table, 1 upon which were two blank receipt •books. In the room was a poor man and his :* wife, who had been lured to the so -called employment office, v These sharpers had advertised for a 'Clerk, "experience not necessary," and the man and his wife had called to in vestigate the alleged position offered " and to pay over the $200 "as a guarantee of good faith." _ Tne men were taken to the central po lice station, where Mellequoid was charged with forgery and Crowell, alias Hood, ia held on suspicion. , Mellequoid is charged with forgery in ■ and, on being arrested yeater .' day, admitted tbe fact. Tbe police have r had a deacription of the man for some ■'time; also that of Crowell. When ! searched at the police station Beveral 'confederate atatea $100 notea were found kin the possession of Mellequoid; also i other paraphernalia known aa "green •"goods," üßed by confidence men. , The men were taken to a photogra t pher's, where their photoa were taken i lor the rogues' gallery. L In the latter part of last December (,two men opened a bunco employment I agency at 13 West Second street. The t landlord of that house yeßterday iden i titled Crowell aB one of the men who 'rented the room. Theirscheme waa sim r liar to that of the one for which they t were arrested yeaterday, and was ex tpoeed by the Hebald come time ago. ' Among their victims waa a Swedenamed Janaen, who applied for a poaition and waa employed at $80 a month. No ex perience was necessary; all that waa •required was that he should remain in the office, anawer all questions, and to charge $1 as a registration fee from all applicants for work. The Swede was required to deposit with them $150 aa a guarantee of good faith—perhapa that he would answer all of the silly queß tlona of cranks who naturally drift into an office. The men promised to have the office neatly carpeted, and that the man'a salary would be paid him out of the proceeds of the buainess. They stated that thia waa a branch office of the Kan Francisco office, and that after it had been fitted up he would be left in ' charge, and would practically have a I "soft thing." He paid the $150 and took their note of hand, payable in 60 days. He waa then given possession of tbe table and a blank book, of which the following is the style of receipts is sued to laboring people in search of em ployment : Established 1884.

The men not returning to tlie office within the two or three days specified, Jansen stated the case to Chief Gluss. Moffatt detailed two men to visit the room, and on theii arrival the bunco fellows had fled. It ia believed that they were watching Janeen aa he entered the chief's office, for it is known tbat the confidence op erators were in their room only a few minutes before tho complaint was made. A few days afterwards the men were heard of in Lower California. A letter waa received by the landlord from Crowell requesting him tj hold their baggage until one of their friends should call for it. The letter bore the post mark of Tia Juana. It is Relieved that they, went directly to San Francisco from Lower California, and resumed operatione at their main office at No. 17 Grant avenue. The Herald yeaterday contained an account of a atreet fight between W. A. Pierce and W. F. Eobb with a"atory be hind it." Pierce, it is claimed, waa victimized out of $300 in San Franciaco by Ross, from whom he purchased a mythical half interest in a real estate business. He was subsequently, it is alleged, BWindled out of $150 >>y Ross and another man named Renaud, who came upon the scene later. After the arrest of Pierce and Ross last Monday evening, a man who gave the name of Hood, and pretending to be deaf, appeared at the station and aaked the amount of Roaa' bail, Hood stated tbat he had given to Ross a check for $300 just before tbe tight. Ross bad no check upon hia person When searched ; he denied any knowl edge of the check, and said that Hood's name waa G. W. Crowell and that he waa his friend. Thiß naturally created auapicion as to hiß identity, and on investigation the detectives have, they think, connected Rose and Mellequoid with Crowell alias Hood. Pierce was fined $5 in Justice Sea man'a court yeaterday for battering Ross, and the case of Robs will come up today. Chief of Police Glass telegraphed to the chief of police at Oakland, immedi ately after the arreat of the men and re ceived an answer to th; effect that Roes and Mellequoid were both wanted in Oakland for forgery, and that an officer (Cake Bromo-Seltzer lor Insomnia Before retiring—lOo a trial bottle. would leave Oakland this morning for Los Angelea, Among the personal effects of Robs arc papers Bhowing that hehailafrom Cin cinnati and ia married to a rather pretty woman named Esther L. Ross; at least her photograph bliowb her to be pretty. A letter addressed to her by him, breathes all kinds of lovo in its several atages. and finally drops into poetry, asking her "Art thou a queen ?" Her answer was not among his letters. In his satchel were also found numerous employment agency blanks, showing that he aud Mellequoid had been in a similar business in Seattle, Tacoma and numerous other cities on the coast, and they even attempted to do business iv the dead city ol San Diego. The Batchelß which the men left in the lodging house on their hasty flight, and in reference to which they wrote the landlord from Lower California, were yesterday taken possession of by the chief of police. Chief Glass also telegraphed Chief Crowley asking if Crowell was wanted in San Francisco, and last evening received this reply: "Will wire you in the morning whether we want Crowell." Following is a description of each of the men: Charlea Mellequaid—Age about 32 yeare; blackem th j height, 5 feet B> 2 ' inches; weight, Hid pounds; dark hair and brown eyes. William St. Clair Robb—Age 35; born in Columbus, O. j neight, 5 feat (S% inches; weight, 129 pounds; brown hair, brown eyes, ssar on side of neck. George Crowell, alias Hood, aged 38 years ; height 5 feet 5?4 inches ; weighs 149 pounds; brown hair sprinkled with gray; blue eyes ; Indian ml* work on back of his hand; the little toe of his right foot is missing. Crowell seems to be deaf; but it is be lieved that he is shamming. The department h.>a done good work in arresting these three confidence oper ators, who have successfully swindled laboring men and others in numerous towns, under tho guise of real-estate and employment agents. They had blanks of every description, and for every species of salable real estate, and guaranteed employment of every nature foi every applicant. They are the most shrewd and suc cessful confidence men in that line who have visited the coast for many years. A LEPER ON THE STREETS IHE HOIERIRLS OBJECT SEEN YES TERDAY BY TWO DOCTORS. A Frightful Cnso that Demands Instant aud Vigorous Action on the Part of the City Health Ofhcsr. A Chinaman yesterday at about noon was promenading on Spring street, near Firßt. There were doubtless other Chinamen in that vicinity but they did not attract much attention, but the Mongol referred to was remarkable in many ways. In the first place hia nose was gone, aud he had no ears, hia face was spotted ;.nd swollen, and altogether he presented a very repulsive appear ance. Dr. Hagan and Dr. Orme happened along about that time and their atten tion waß at once attracted to the disease eaten Chinaman. "It'a a case of leproßy," said Dr. Orme. "And a very bad rejdied Dr. Hagan, who" has 'spent considerable time in the Hawaiian islands etudying the terrible malady. The two physicians talked to the wretched man. He eaid hia name waa Ah Jim, and that he had lived here for two years. "Where do you live?" asked Dr. Hogan. "In Chinatown," was the answer. "But whereabouts in Chinatown? On what atreet?" he waa asked. "No Babe" waa all he would anawer, and no amount of questioning would ex tract any further information from him, and he trotted on his way. Dr. Babcock also saw the leper before he got away, and agreed with the othera that it waa a caso of true Asiatic leprosy in an ad vanced stage. This is a pleasant matter to contem plate ; according to his own statement thiß leper has been living here unguard ed, going where he pleased, when he pleased, and has had full opportunity to infect otherß with hiß horrible disease. It is these matters that a city health officer is supposed to look after, and that official will do hima6lf credit if he goes to work at onco and captures this walking pest and isolates him perma nently. His being at liberty is a conatant menace to the health of un suspicious people. There is no telling what laundries and shops be may fre quent nor how many people he elbows and jostles on his walks about the city. He should be hunted up today and put where he can be carod for and where he cannot .inflict irreparable injury to others. THEY CAN WED. People Who Yeaterday Secnred Their Marriage Licenses. The following marriage licenses were yesterday issuod by tbe county clerk: Pauline Garcia, aged 22, a native of California, and Oludina Daniel, aged 15, a native of California, both residents of San Gabriel. Nathan Campbell, aged S3, a native of Tennessee, and Lucille Chipron, aged 33, a native of Illinois, both residents of Los Angeles.

Business Transacted at Yesterday's Session of the Council. Many Arguments for and Against tlie Southern Pacific Railroad Company's Petition—Miscel laneous Matters. The city conncil met yesterday morn ing and Colonel Smith appeared before that body and devoted half an hour to showing that a steam railroad on Ala meda street virtually cut the city into and established a Chinese wall between Boyle Heights and the western part of tlie city. Had this road never been al lowed to pass south of Commercial street we might have had today a nnion depot like that of Portland, Ore., a city of about equal commercial strength to our own but with less population. Mr. Pat ton has said tnere should be a common avenue of approach to the city and all roads should be entitled to use the same tracks if two tracks are to be built on Alameda street. Let the Santa Fe line have the same use of these double tracks as the Southern ; and the little Redondo road also, if it desires to widen its gauge to a standard road. The city may have to pay damages to the Southern Pacific for removal of their track?. It may cost this city dearly but, as Mr. Houghton had said yesterday, this is not a city of 60,000 people alone. It is a city with great producing country back of it and a city of great commercial destiny. It must necessarily reach a population equal to the present population of San Fran cisco, if not greater. It has today over 100 trains per day running in and out tbe city; and, setting aside tbe local trains connecting with the ferries at Oakland, it has more trains than San Francisco and Oakland together. This city needs her streets for thorougfares, and the railroads csn stop outside the city limits, aB they do in every metro politan city, except Washington. Once make this concession of a double track to the Southern Pacific, without making a similar concession to rival roads run ning into this city, and you fasten upon the people of this city a burden it should not be aßked to boar. COLLINS' VOICE WAS FOR WAB. Mr. Michael Collins, ex-councilman from the Eighth ward, was the next speaker. His remarks were almost en tirely statistical. He waa fortified with a great long profile map, about the length of Don Giovanni's conquest roll. He began to overhaul the frontage signed upon the railroad company's petition for a double track, and said that he held in his hand a remon strance from Mr. Simon, who owned 50 feet front. Mow the railroad comes in here with the name of C. C. Cabot signed to its petition. This man Cabot does not own a foot on Alameda street. He ia merely the administrator of a dead man's estate and the guardian of a minor heir who is aa intelligent as moat young men of his age, and aa near being able to manage hia own affaira an any young man of hie age in the state. Hia name is affixed to our remonstrance against tbe petition, and it becomes a question aa to whether you will allow this young man'a remonetrance or hia guardian's signature, who does not own an inch of the land he haa aigned for. I tell you thia company haa not got on« --third of the frontage on its petition, let alone the majority. I will road now the frontage on that Btreet, aB taken from tho assessment rolls. Mr. Munson —I move that the city engineer bring in his official man of Al ameda Btreet and compare it with the mapa presented by theee contestants. One of these maps seems to differ with the other in frontage, and an appeal to the city engineer's map seems to be tbe only way of obtaining diainterested evi dence in this matter. BRING ON THE ENGINEER. Mr. Dockweiler was summoned and brought in his maps. Prior to his ar rival a dispute arose as to the amount ol frontage held by Stephens & Work man. Mr. Workman—We own 88 feet. Mr. Collins —My map here says 85 feet. Judge Bicknell—You are incorrect, sir. Oar map says 80 feet for Workman & Stephens. Mr. Workman —I say 88 feet. An inspection of the official map made by the city engineer showed a frontage of 80 feet. The members now got out slips of paper and began to "keep a tab" on the frontage as Mr. Collins read off from his long and narrow strip of parchment. President Teed had Dockweiler's trac ing on his desk and acted as a sort of moderator between Mr. Collins and Judge Bicknell. "There, now," said Mr. Collins, "if. these gentlemen have got over one third of this frontage I miss my calcula tion badly." Judge Bicknell—Marcus A. Foster, 150 feet. Mr. Collins—lt don't go. Who signed that—the mayor of this city ? Judge Bicknell—Yes, sir; as Mr. Fos ter's attorney and agent in fact. Mr. Collins (excitedly)—l tell you, it don't go. Mr. President, is there any thing in your desk to denote Mr. Marcus Foster's withdrawal of bis signature to our patent? Mr. Teed—No, air. Mr. Collins—Then I deny the right of Judge Bicknell to use Mayor Rowan'H signature to any document as agent of a man who baa signed against that propo sition. Mr. Teed—l think, sir, that tho signa ture of a man in reference to hia own property would alwaya take preference over tbat of his agent. Mr. Collins—l think I have stated this case plainly enough for any man to understand. I cannot see bow any man in this council can vote to confiscate the property of the people on Alameda street for the benefit of this corpora tion. BICKNELL, THE IMPERTURBABLE. Judge Bicknell replied to Mr. Collins and eaid he had no desire to mislead this council. He said the railroad com pany had agreed to "grade, curb and gravel" the street after the petition had been presented to the council that had just gone ont of office. He denied hav ing acted with duplicity in this matter, and charged the omission of the words "curb and gravel" upon the printer who set up the petition aforesaid. He did not discover the error until the en tire edition bad been worked off. He then reviewed the question of safety on Neuralgic headaches promptly cure'l by Btswj-Seluer—lOo a trial bottle. railroads, showing that two tracks wonld diminish the chances of the loss of life by collision. He said that the law de manded that railroading ahould be done In safety; and referred to the growth of buaineaa in the city from year to year, aa well ac to the proßpective increase of business likely to accrue from the con struction of the big wharf at Santa Mon ica and the proposed harbor improve ments at San Pedro. The city was grow ing and the deficiency of track room on Alameda street waa already causing an occasional blockade at the Arcade depot. The computation of frontage on Ala meda street, between First and Fourth streets, is 3320 feet, of which 1645 feet are signed in favor of the Southern Pa cific railway's petition and 1675 feet on the remonstrance against it. The council then took a recess until 1:30 o'clock p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION, The council reassembled at the ap pointed hour, with President Teed in the chair, when Mr. Munson moved that all consideration of the proposition be deferred till Monday, February 20th. Mr. Galley moved to amend by order ing tbat the petition be denied. There being no second to the motion, the ques tion recurred upon the motion to post pone to the 20th inst., which wag car ried by 8 ayes to 1 no. BTRKET LEGISLATION. Mr. Munson moved that the Btreet superintendent be instructed to lower the gutters on west aide of Pearl street, ! between Fifth and Sixth, bo aa to per mit the escape of Btorm water. The motion waa adopted with Borne trifling amendment. REQUISITIONS APPROVED. The Bupply committee reported an approval of the usual batch of requisi tions for current expenses. This report was considered by sections, when Mr. Nickell inquired if these requisitions were final aad tbat no more money was to be spent than what waa asked in the requisitions. He eaid that there was a great deal of extra expense being con stantly incurred over and above the amount called for by the requisitions, and this was notably perceptible in mat ters connected with the engineer's office. Being assured that the present outlay for boring holes for foundations of city water works along the line of the river should cover all expenditures in that direction, Mr. Nickell withdrew his objection and the report was adopted without dissent. a CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT. In the matter of the drop in the side walk at Fifth and Pearl, the engineer re ported that the drop occurred from a miscalculation in a former establish ment of grade in those streets; and fur ther suggested the same be remedied at a cost of $50. Adopted. He further reported ordinances of in tention to sewer portions oi Bartlett and Pearl streets, also one to grade, gravel and cement certain portions of Eehan dia Btreet. The first was passed under suspension of the rules, while the latter was referred to the board of public works. The final ordinaries establishing the grade of Ninth street between Lake and Park View streets was then pasaed un der suspension of rules. MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA. On motion of Mr. Campbell, ordi nances of intention to change and estab lish the grades of certain parts of Michi gan and Pennsylvania avenues and Bsyley street were then taken up one at a time and pasßed under a suspension of rules. An ordinance to grade, gravel and put a redwood curb upon Bartlett street be tween Montreal and Beaudry avenue was passed under a suspension of rules. LOWER MAIN AND WABUINOTON STREETS. Mr. Pessell moved that . the street superintendent be instructed to effect repairs on Main street near the city limits; also that the city engineer be ordered to establish the grade of Wash ington street between Central avenue and Sau Pedro Btreet. Adopted. A motion to order repairs on San Pedro street near Washington and Twenty-third streets was sent to the board of public worka. A ISBEEZE ON ZANJA WATER. Mr. Pessell, from the committee on zanjas, made a recommendation that the new flume on East Alameda street be lowered five feet, at a cost not to exceed $24, which was adopted. The same gentleman moved that a gate be put in and waste water from the electric works turned into the Zsnja Madre tunnel, which was embodied in the same report. Thiß led to a very animated discussion between Messrs. Pessell and Nickell, the latter of whom said it involved an unnecessary expense, in return for which the city received no compensation from the electric works. STREET SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. Mr. Wat sou, street superintendent, was personally present when his report was read, asking for six more men and three more teams with which to put the streets in order. Mr. Teed—l would like to ask the su perintendent if he does not think that all the work to be done at this season, with showers coming down every day or two, is not just so much money thrown away 1 And would it not be better tv let tbe whole thing go over until April and then do the work in a more perma nent manner? Mr. Nickell—ls thiß expense unavoid able, and must it be incurred at once? Mr. Wataon—l think bo, or I would not advocate it in my report. Tnia city haa 86 square miles of streets, and we have now 32 men at work on tbem. In the summer, when there are no freshets arising from rainstorms, that number of men is more than enough. Just now it is insufficient. This portion of the report went to the board of public works. The' rest, cover ing some very important matters of routine work, was adopted.

Gov't Report Ro&feJ Baking AB»?£MWEDt PURE A NEW KINK IN THE MYSTERY. Mrs. Haywood Now Complicates the Nordholt-Bentley Case. Some Interesting: Statements in Her Cross-Complaint for Divorce. Did Bentley Deed the Nordholt Prop erty to Hia Attorney and Give Him a Large Amount in Cash 1 It looks now aB if neither the Nord hold heira nor Bentley would get much benefit from the big Nordholt estate, to secure which it ia alleged Bentley pois oned his wife; for yeaterday further complicationa ensued which will make fat fees for the attorneys. When all tbe litigation ia over, Bentley either ac quitted or found guilty, and the lawyers' fees and court expenses paid for all the litigation, the $100,000 estate will not be visible to the naked eye. Yeßterday Mrs. George Haywood filed an answer to her husband's complaint for divorcs, together with a cross-com plaint, which, it is claimed, contains aome interesting matter. The cross complaint, it is alleged, denies that Mrs. Haywood has ever done anything on which her husband has any ground for bringing a suit for divorce, and asks for a decree, attorney's fees and alimony to the extent of $200 a month, on which to support herself and her three children. But the sensational part of the com plaint ie said to be in Mrs. Haywood's description of her husband's property, which she claims is all community prop erty, and amounted to $00,000, more or less. This property consists of cash and real estate. The latter, it is said, Mrs. Haywood describes fully in the com plaint, and that the description exactly covers the real estate in this city be longing, as was supposed, to Bentley, which was deeded to him by his wife, Mrs. Nordholdt, and which her children are now Buing to recover from him. It is inferred from this that Mrß. Haywood and her attorney, C. C. Stephens, aro under the impression that Bentley hae deeded to Haywood all the property he got from his wife, and if thia ie the case it iB community property; if it ia com munity property why of course Mrs. Haywood haa an interest in it, and thua nno.her knot is tied in the title. It ia said that a further allegation in the cross-complaint is to the effect tbat Haywood has on deposit in the Farmers and Merchants bank about $10,000 iv in the name of Abbi* tl. Michael. Li» typewriter, which money is supposedly the result of a mortgage of a portion of ; the Nordholt property. i At any rate Attorney C. C. Stephens yesterday admitted that he had secured an in/unction restraining the Farmers and Merchants bank from paying out any money that it has in the name of George Hay wood or Abbie Michael, and also restraining Haywood or Abbie Mjchael from drawing such money, and served a lis pendens on the real estate. Altogether the whole busiueßß iB in a pretty tangle, and the outcome no man can foretell. No deed of the real estate from Bentley to Haywood appears on the recorda. but it is a possibility that the deeds were made before Bentley gave Haywood his irrevocable power ot at torney. In this case it would not be necessary to file the deedß until Hay wood wanted to transfer tho property, as Bentley having given that power of attorney could not make any further deed. YOUNG—COLVER. The Wedding Yosterduy of a Well-Known Newspaper JUan, Bichard James Colver, one of the most talented young newspaper men of the city, and Miss Evelina P. Young, daughter of Robert J. Young of Decatur, 111., were married at 12 o'clock yester day at St. Paul's church, on Olive street. Miss Young ia a charming young lady, and the couple start upon their wedded life with an unusually large circle of warm friends. The wedding waß a quiet but a very delightful one. Those in at tendance were the relatives and intimate friends of the bride and groom. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Thomas W. Haßkirfs, D.D. The bride was given away by Mr. Edward Somervillo, and looked ac blithe and bonny a bride as one could wish to see at the chance., in a handsome white bridal coßtume. After the wedding an informal reception was held, and then the bridal party went to tbe residence of the groom's father, Capt. Frank B. Colver, on North Figueroa street, where a pleasant re ception was given. The very best wishes of a host ot friends is extended for the happiness of tbe bridal couple. Dandruff.

Two years and eight months ago the ladies in the congregation of Immanuel church on Tenth Btreet Bet about paying off a debt of $5000, accumulated in the furnishing and upholstering of the church. One of the foremost in the work waß Mrs. L. A. Kelly, now a resi dent of San Francisco, but there were others who took up the labor of love where she had laid it down. Mrs. J. J. Ayers, Mrs. Mathews, Mrs. Salisbury and a score of others that might be named, all labored with n common end in view, until yesterday all the debts growing out of the equip ment of the church were paid off and obliterated forever. The Sunday school roomß of the church were thrown open last night in commemoration of the event and a gen eral reception was given by the congre gation to their friends. Rev. Mr. Chi chester presided and the little room had been beautifully decorated with roses and ivy with an appropriate motto in smilax on the wall. After an addrees by Dr. Chichester, a paper was read by Mrs. Salisbury, president of the Ladies' Aid Bociety. Then Mrs. Mathews, treas urer of the Ladies' Aid Bociety, read her financial report and then a brief address was made by Mrß. J. J. Ayers, vice president of the asaociation. Then Dr. Boa!, Mr. Patterson, Colonel Ayera and several other gentlemen spoke briefly and the company were invited to a collation in the adjoining room where sandwiches, colfee, cake and ice cream were served by the young ladies of the congregation, after which everybody went home delighted at a ploaßant re union and glad to think that the church debt was a thing of the past.
