SAVED BY MR, MEYER.
A Juror in the Paulseil Case
HE VOTED FOR ACQUITTAL.
The Eleven Who Were for Convic
tion Charge Him With Per
The trial of William E. Paulseil for the
daring robbery of a Market-street faro
game on February 16, 185H, reached its final
stage yesterday after running its course for
The proceedings yesterday presented
several unusual features. There was a
surprising defense, representing the de
fendant Paulseil as not a robber, but as
having been himself robbed, clothed by the
real criminals with all the circumstances
THE DEFENDANT PAULSELL TELLING- HIS STORY IN COURT.
[Sketched by a "Call" artist.]
of crime under an unjust accusation for
over a year. There was the pathetic spec
tacle of his brother, an honored member
of the bar, pleading for his brother's vin
dication in the lace of overwhelming odds
and himself taking the stand in his de
fense. There were the facts of the prison
er's reputable family, his aversion to
wealth, the testimony of friends from all
over the country to his having borne a
good reputation, even though his occupa
tion was Known to be that of a professional
gambler. There was the eternal "woman
in the case," a strong attempt to prove al
most a complete alibi up to the very arrest
of the defendant, the appearance of the
defendant himself on the stand and, in
fact, every element of interest culminating
in the verdict of the jury.
Upon the convening of Judge Belcher's
court in the morning every seat was occu
pied. Attorney J. Paulsell made the open
ins statement" for the defense. He de
clared his side would show every move
ment of the prisoner from 7:40 o'clock on
the evening of the 15th of February, 1894,
until his arrest about 3 o'clock the next
momintr, and outlined those movements
as having been from the Burlington Hotel
to various saloons and gambling-jilaces
until he reached Carroll's resort at 620
Market street shortly after 2:45 a. m.
Then counsel made the startling state
ment that he would show that his brother
on pushing open the street -loor had been
confronted by two men, who had robbed
him of about $17, taken off his hat and re
placed it by another, had then thrown a
mackintosh over his shoulders and pushed
him out into the street to fall almost into
the arms of the arresting officers. His
general contention would be that as the
heir to large property interests and on good
terms with a rich mother he had no mo
tive for committing the crime with which
he was charged.
The fiist witness to support this line of
defense was W. H. Tidball, a railroad de
tective, who said he had seen the prisoner
and a man named Marshall, about 2:35
o'clock on the morning of the robbery, in
front of the Peerless saloon. Although he
knew this fact, he had not spoken about it
until a month before the trial.
I. R. Wilbur, formerly partner of the de
fendant's father, testified to the prisoner's
good character as far as he knew it. This
line of testimony was afterward
'piven by Mike H. Smith', a saloon-keeper
•>f this City; General J.W. B.Montgomery,
k rancher; "Sheriff Wilson, Attorney J. D.
Sproule, Banker Robinson, T. H. Bernard,
livery stable-keeper, all of Chico; John
Stevenson, farmer; F. T. Gordon, guu
deale.r; W. W. Ward, saloon-keeper; Mayor
W. T. Ellis Jr., all of Marysville; James
Orndorff, saloon-keeper of this City; Attor
ney A. T. Vogelsang of this City and Judge
E. HL Tarns of Stockton.
George A. Gushing, a gambler known as
"Cariboo George/" testified that at 12:30
o'clock on the morning of the robbery he
had been asked at the Golden West Hotel
by the defendant for money, on a debt of
over $100 owed on a "string account, but
that Paulsell refused to take $5 when it was
Fred Marshall, a gambling man and
sport, had met Paulsell at about 12:30 on
that morning at the Golden West Hotel,
and saw him at 2 o'clock in the barroom
there. Together they went to the Peerless
saloon and down Market street, meeting
one Frank, or "Tod," McDonald, who was
not produced to testify. Opposite Wid
ber's drugstore, on the corner of Third and
Market streets, the prisoner and Marshall
had separated, the latter going down Third
and Paulsell continuing along Market to
ward Carroll's faro place. Just before sepa
rating Marshall had glanced up at the
Chronicle clock tower and remarked to his
companion that it was 3:45 a.m. The
prosecution had shown that the robbery
4. took place about 3:40 a. m.
Then the defendent took the stand. In
answer to his counsel's questions he told
he had left his room on O'Farrell street
on the evening of the 15th February and
engaged a room at the Burlington "Hotel
for himself and a friend. From there he
bad roamed about town, going to several
gambling places and at one staking a dol
lar on the last or "hot" card of the deck,
getting his money back. He had asked
p 'C»nboo" Georee for some money and
had refused to take a small sum offered.
Among the places he visited was Carroll's
faro place and there he only entered the
first room and withdrew after making
some passing remarks. Then he went
back to the Burlington and remained there
until 11 p. m., when he came out again,
leaving his overcoat and cuffs as > pledge
that he would return.
The defendant then detailed his meeting
with Cushing. "Tod" McDonald and Mar
shall, leaving the latter about 3:45.
"I walked down to Carroll's place," con
tinued he, "intending to drop in for a
game before going to bed. When I reached
G2O Market street 1 noticed the door was
slightly ajar, and as I pushed it open and
entered I was confronted by a man who
pointed a pistol at me and called out,
"Then a secona man came round and
began to search me. "See if he's got any
weapon,' said one. 'He's got some money,'
said the other. 'Take it,' said the man
with the gun. So he took $17 in gold and
silver from my pants pocket.
"Just then the man with the gun —
though both of them had guns — said,
•The upstairs are hollering.
You better get rid of your coat.' Both the
men had on long mackintoshes.
'So one of them whips off his coat,
knocks my hat off. puts another hat on my
head and" places his long coat round my
shoulders. Then he takes hold of my
clothes and runs a long pistol down the
log of my left leg next the flesh and shoved
me into the street." At this point the
witness rose and dramatically showed how
the pistol was thrust down his trouser-leg.
"I was dazed and staggered along toward
Montgomery street, when I heard the
jingle of coin dropped on the sidewalk. I
put my hand down and found a stocking
which had been left in the outside pocket
of the coat placed upon me by the robber.
The coin was dropped from that and when
1 saw some officers approach I handed it
Assistant District Attorney Peixotto
cross-examined the witness. Paulsell said
he had not made known this perfect de
fense before because of his lady friend at
the Burlington. He had not wished his
wife to know he had been arrested.
"Why didn't you tell the arresting offi
cers ?" urged Peixotto.
"I realized the position I was in." said
"Well, if you realized your position,
what was it? What were you arrested for?
Not because of your friend at the hotel,
was it? What did you think it was for?"
But the witness only repeated that he
realized his position, and asked his cross
examiner with an air of reproach whether
lie thought it necessary for a man to tell
all his troubles to an officer.
"Those men, you say," pursued Peixotto,
"didn't wear masks. Should you know
The witness smiled.
I don't think I should," he answered.
Then he was asked about their guns;
whether there was much difficulty in
thrusting the long pistol down his trouser
leg, and whether ne thought that men
who had just robbed a bank of thousands
of dollars would care to waste time in rob
bing him of his small change.
The defendant-witness stuck to his story
of the robbers robbing him, and said he
thought he would have been out of prison
by 11 o'clock the next day. That was the
reason he had given a fictitious name.
For a year and four months he had not
divulged the true facts of that night.
In corroboration of the defendant's state
ment that he had thought he would soon
be released an officer testified that on the
morning after his arrest he had stated that
all would be explained at the proper time,
and had asked him to get his overcoat and
cuffs from the Burlington Hotel.
Then the case went to the four attorneys
for argument. Associate Prosecuting At
torney Martin Stevens opened, followed by
Attorneys Bert and Paulsell for the de
fense, Assistant District Attorney Peixotto
closing. Each talked for fifteen minutes.
The defense urged that there was no mo
tive for a crime, as Paulsell would inherit
one-fourth of $46,000 in a few years, had a
general interest in an estate valued at
$114,000, and was good friends with his
mother, who had private means amounting
to $35,000. The line of defense was prob
able and the good character of the defend
ant has been vouched for in court.
The prosecution ridiculed the defense as
a fairy tale of the first water. Nothing but
a goat or an ostrich could swallow it. There
should not be a different law for the rich
and poor, and the fact that the defendant
was honorably connected should not weigh
against the evidence of his guilt. Upon
the jury Uy the burden of putting a stop
to this class of crimes in the community.
After Judge Belcher had delivered his
charge, with special reference to the de
fendant's own testimony and the value of
circumstantial evidence, the jury retired
to deliberate on its verdict.
There was an unexpected sensation in
the case last night, and one of the jurors,
Julius Meyer of 1122 Turk street, may find
himself in serious trouble before many
days are past.
The jury retired at 4:30 p.m. and at 6
o'clock went to supper. The Judge had
notified them that he would be in court at
8 o'clock to receive their verdict.
Shortly before 8 o'clock Judge Belcher
took his seat on the bench and the jury
was called in. As soon as they had taken
their seats John Hinkle, the foreman,
sprang the sensation.
"Your Honor," he said, "we have
failed to agree upon a verdict, and there is
no use sending us back, as one of the
jurors says he is prejudiced against the
court and will stay out three months if
necessary rather than agree. It will be a
waste of time to discuss a verdict any

the Judge, "the defendant has had a ™>r

fectly fair trial. It is the duty of the jury
to be guided hy the law and evidence only.
If a juror is prejudiced against the court
that should not enter into the question of
a verdict. You have been engaged several
days in hearing the case and it is desirable
that you should reach a verdict."
"I think this is a matter for the Grand
Jury," said Foreman Hinkle. "I would
ask permission of the court to consult with
the court and the attorneys in the case in
regard to the juror referred to."
"I have no right," said the Judge, "to
grant any such permission. You should
agree upon a verdict and I shall return at
10 o'clock to receive it."
"I would suggest," said Hinkle, "that
you send a Deputy Sheriff with us, other
wise there is a probability of this juror
being thrown out of the window."
The suggestion was unheeded by the
court and the jury retired.
Shortly before 10 o'clock the Judge again
took his seat on the bench and the jury
was called in. In answer to the usual
question Foreman Hinkle said they could
not agree upon a verdict. He handed the
court the following report:
We, jurymen in the case of the people against
W. E. Paulseil, beg to report to this court that
Juryman Julius Meyer declared in the jury
room, after the second ballot, that he was
prejudiced against the court and should not be
in this case, and that he had been reprimanded
by the Judge in another case and would not

Juror Meyer asked permission to make a
statement, and he was warned by Assistant
District Attorney Peixotto that it would be
better for nim to consult with his attorney
first, as what he might say would be uaed
to his prejudice in any subsequent pro
ceedings that might be taken against him.
Meyer persisted in making a statement.
He said : "After the second ballot the fore
man asked who was the juror that had
voted for acquittal, and I replied that I
had. I said there was evidence, which I
mentioned, that put a reasonable doubt in
my mind of the defendant's guilt, and they
all laughed at me. That made me excited
and I said that in another case in which I
was a juror the Judge had made remarks
against those who were for acquittal that I
felt keenly and which ought to make me
prejudiced against the court. I said that
they could not force me to vote against my
convictions, even though I should stay
there tor three months.'
"He distinctly said that he was preju
diced against the court." said Foreman
Hinkle, "and would not change his vote if
he should stay out for three months."
'•Am I to understand." asked Mr. Peix

"Yes, sir," answered Foreman Hinkle.

The Judgo said he remembered the case
spoken of By Juror Meyer, but the remarks
he then made should not interfere with his
duty as a juror in any other case.
"Gentlemen, you are discharged," said
the Judge to the jurors. "Mr. Peixotto,
you will take whatever action you may
deem necessary in regard to Juror Meyer.' 1

THE HARRINGTON MURDER
Captain Lees Will Say Nothing
at All Concerning the
THE MYSTERY A DAY LONGER
Suspicious Stories Involving Ex-
Senator Buck Have No Evidence
to Confirm Them.
Captain Lees refuses to say a word about
the Harrington mystery, and yesterday
was as barren of developments in the case
that would point to either the manor the
motive responsible for the murder as the
previous days had been.
"Read the Pbst if you want to know why
I will not talk to reporters," Captain Lees
said last evening.
The evening paper referred to contained
yesterday a sensational story to the effect
that the Police Department was sure that
ex-Senator Buck, who died Tuesday morn
ing, was tho man who killed Miss Harring
ton, and that the information in the pos
session of Captain Lees supporting that
theory was withheld because the man
more than suspected was dead.
While Captain Lees has consistently re
fused from the first to express an opinion
about the connection of Buck with the
case, either to assert or deny the hints, sus
picions and intimations in this direction
that have gained currency, there has ap
peared no evidence whatever to warrant
connecting ex-Senator Buck with the
crime. The stories told by his family and
by Moore, the hackman, which establish
an alibi for him by showing that he did
not reach the City last Saturday until a
littld after the discovery of Miss Harring
ton's remains, have not been contradicted.
Detective Seymour has been endeavoring
to clearly trace Mr. Buck's movements that
day and to establish his whereabouts dur
ing the noon hour by further convincing
testimony, but no information that he may
have gained has been given out.
The remains of the late ex-Senator Buck
will be laid away this afternoon, the funeral
to be under the auspices of Live Oak
Lodge of Masons and the Knights Templar.
The friends of the deceased and the Police
Department must soon be able to put all
mere rumors of Mr. Buck's goings and
comings on that day definitely to rest by
producing convincing testimony. Captain
Lees has not even insinuated that he sus
pected that Buck knew anything of the
Not a supgestion of a clew to the mur
derer developed yesterday, nor anything
pointing to^ the possible motive for the
crime. Ttie case is remarkable among
murder mysteries for the complete ab
sence of any evidence of any kind upon
which even rational theories and sus
picions may be built.
The Harrington inquest is set for to
morrow, but there is no apparent promise
that it will result in advance toward a so
lution of the mystery.
The arrangements" for Miss Harrington's
funeral will not be made until Saturday
after the return of Mr. and Mrs. Rae from
Sacramento, where they went yesterday.
It is yet uncertain whether the burial will
be in" Sacramento or Chicago.
Mrs. Jackson, the widowed sister of the
deceased, in whose favor the will reads,
had a long private talk with Captain
Lees in his office at the City Hall last
night. Mrs. Jackson herself" adheres to
the belief, which appears to be the result
of intuition more than anything else, that
her sister was murdered by unknown
enemies who plotted her death. Mrs.
Jackson for many years held closer rela
tions to the deceased than any others of
the iamily, and while she knows nothing
directly related to the crime what she
knows of the life and character of her
sister has been learned by the police in
Mrs. Jackson had a scare at 1017 Ellis
street yesterday and last night she was
given police protection. An officer was
detailed to stay in the house and the watch
will likely be continued until Mrs. Jack
son can sell the furniture of the flat, which
is willed to her, and get away, which she
will do as soon as possible. The canse of
her scare was the appearance yesterday
afternoon of a man who walked about the
street awhile studying the outside of the
place, ana who then came inside, an
nounced himself as a detective and went
to fumbling about the papers and books
lying around. When his authority was
questioned he could not prove it and he
was put out. He is thought to have been
some amateur detective who wanted to
unravel the mystery. However, Mrs.
Jackson was afraid and went at once to
the police station, with the result that she
will hereafter be guarded in the apart
ments where the terrible tragedy took
It is said that the people now occupying
the different apartments in the house are
getting ready to move out and away from

HAWAIIAN EXILE'S STORY.
Carl Klemme Says That He
Was Slowly Starving
He Incurred the Enmity of the Gov
ernment by His Objections to
Carl Klemme yesterday followed the ex
ample of P. M. Rooney Dy swearing to his
charges against the Dole Government in
Hawaii. He charges gross neglect of the
comfort of political prisoners, and says he
was singled out as a "suspect" because of
his opposition to the coolies. His state
ment is as follows:
Was arrested January 7, 1895, at about 3 :30
p. m., and placed in a cell. My cellmate was
P. M. Rooney. I was not given hammock nor
blanket till next night. At about 8:30 in the
morning of January 8, 1895, a breakfast was
placed in the cell; it consisted of hardtack,
beef, potato and tin of tea. Was not allowed
out of the cell till about 12 :30 p. m. ; was then
fiven about an hour of exercise. Next day,
anuary 9. 1895, was not out of my cell till
about 2:30 p. M.
All this time I suffered severely from asthma.
January 8, 1895, 1 was called into the office by
the jailer. He said to me that my wife was
outside; that she had told m« that my young
est child was sick ; that she had left some medi
cine for me. He ask<^d me in the presence of
A. P. Peterson how I used the medicine. He
then stated that I could not use it at night— l
must use it during the day. He would not
allow me to take it in the cell. I was refused
on this occasion permission to see my wife.
Through lack of medicine and irom close
confinement my condition became worse daily,
and at last I could scarcely speak.
About the 22d of January, 1805, at 9 p. m., I
was removed to another cell. From 4p. si. of
February 2, 1895, until 2 p. m. next day I was
not given food nor allowed exercise.
Finally I could stand my sickness no longer.
I asked Kamana, deputy jailer, for a doctor.
He said that 1 would have to wait until the
next morning. This was the morning of about
the 14th or 15th of February, 1895. I insisted
upon having a doctor immediately. After
much delay Dr. Grossman was sent for. About
ten minutes after the doctor had gone 1 fainted
in the prison yard through weakness. For
some time I had eaten nothing because of my
sickness. I was carried into the hospital.
After about fifteen minutes, with the assist
ance of two men, I was brought back to my
On the 21st of February, 1895, 1 was called
into the office of the jailer and left with one
Henery. The office door was closed, and no one
else was In the office. This was about 2 o'clock:
P. M. This man Henery has been in the coun
try about five months. Henery said that he
had seen the Marshal and my brother, Henry
Klemrae. He had come to me as a friend; had
talked the matter over with the Marshal and
my brother, Henry Klemme, and they had de
cided it was best for me to leave the country.
1 told him 1 was guilty of no crime and would
not go. He told me that he knew this, but that
I would be tried and found guilty; that I had
lost all my friends.
I then asked him if Hawaii had a Russian
government now. He laughingly replied that
if I did not agree to leave the country he would
arrest my two brothers immediately. He
turned toward me as 1 started to leave and
said, "Take my advice and go, for you will be
found guilty." I said I would go if the country
would buy my property.
The next day I saw my brother. He advised
me to sign an agreement to leave the country.
I asked, "How is this?" He said that he had
seen the Marshal and that the Marshal had be
come angry at my refusal to leave, and had
said that he had enough evidence to convict,
andjthut if he had not he would find evidence. I
then decided to agree to leave. I was confined
for forty-six days— from January 7, 1805, until
February 22, 1895. 1 have not been in any
wise connected with the recent insurrection. I
had no prior knowledge of any such intended
insurrection. Gael Klemme.

The proposition is for each mine to buy
as many feet on the Brunswick lode as
they have on the Comstock lode. Then
all will combine and bear the expense of

he explained. "Why, where the Sutro

Probably the most important matter to
be discussed is that of the mineral lands of
California. The railroads have taken up
hundreds and thousands of acres of min
eral lands, and one object of the executive
committee will be to devise some plan by
which these lands can be thrown open to
the public. It is a serious question, and
one in which every Californian is more or

THAT FAIR WHEAT SALE
Editor Will S. Green's Opinion
of Its Effect Upon the
THINKS PRICES WILL FALL.
How Profit Could Be Made by Con
verting Much of the Grain
Will S. Green, editor of the Colusa Sun,
was asked yesterday how he thought the
sale of the wheat owned by James G. Fair
would affect the interests of the grain
growers of California.
"You ask what the effect of the sale of
the Fair wheat will be. I say the effect is
bad," replied Mr. Green. "The fact that
so much wheat is congested in this mar
ket, so to speak, will cause freights to go
up, and if freights go up of course the
price of wheat must go down in order to
meet opposition in the markets of the
"You see, Fair piled up this wheat, and
now if they are going to ship it all it will
require all the ships that will be available
in this harbor for months, whereas if it
had not been bought and stored here the
ships would have carried it out in the
natural circulation of commerce, as it
"The same effect has been seen in years
past along the railroad and along the Sac
ramento River — particularly along the
"People were in the habit of storing grain
along the railroads and the Sacramento
River waiting fora market, but they found
when the market came there were not
boats enough to carry off the grain, and
the dealers having boats encaged to carry
so much wheat at certain times were able
to make the farmers bid against each other
for the sales of wheat. The price to the
farmer would therefore go down. Of
course the same effect would take place on
account of the Fair wheat.
"Experience has taught the farmers
something and now they prefer to store at
Port Costa or at some pface alongside the
"In regard to whether the wheat that is
infested with weevil is worth shipping I
would say that that will have to stand on
its own basis In a foreign market. With
the present price of pork and wheat, it
will pay to feed a tolerably good article of
wheat to hogs, but certainly no weevilly
wheat should be shipped. It would pay
much better to feed it to the hogs. If they
would do this, the more Fair wheat there
is tainted by weevil the better for the
"Any one can see that this method of
disposing of the grain would be of benefit
to the people who own it as well as to the
people of California. Unless wheat is first
class there is little chance of selling it in
Liverpool or elsewhere for more than the
freights; but by turning it into pork there
is a sure profit. If it could be disposed of
in this way the demand for ships would be
lessened and the farmers who have new
wheat could get it to market for a lower
rate than is bound to rule so long as the
Fair wheat is held in the warehouses or is
bidding for ships."
