Shasta's Defaulting Treas
urer Given a Ten- Year
Affecting Scenes in Court During
the Last Act of the
R cital cf the Prisoner's Former Char
acter Brings T ars to the Eyes
of His Friends.
REDDING, Cal., Nov. 19.— The last act
in the trial of William Jackson, Shasta
County's embezzling Treasurer, was
brought to a close this afternoon at 4
o'clock. At that hour the one-time
"watchdog of the treasury" was brought
before the bar of justice for embezzlement.
The fact that Jackson was to be sentenced
was kept a secret and no spectators were
present but a Call reporter and Democrat
As befitted the solemn scene that was to
take place the courtroom was dark and
presented a gloomy appearance. Ths pris
oner was brought forward, looking Dale
and haggard, and when the sentence had
been passed upon him his face wore an ex
pression of relief that it was all over, it
was the most solemn courtroom scene that
was ever witnessed in Reddinp. The pros
ecution, conducted by District Attorney
Rose, the reading of the complaint by
Deputy Clerk Cunningham, and the sen
tencing of the ex-Treasurer by Judge
S ceney — all three old-time friends and
bosom companions of the defaulter — was
Indeed a painful duty and not a dry eye
was noticeable in the courtroom. During
the reading of the compiaint Jackson ap
peared cool and somewhat collected, but
when it came to pleading Jackson broke
down and his ro:ce grew so husky that the
word "gulity" was hardly audible as it es
caped his lips.
After the plea was entered Attorney
Smith, for Jackson, announced that they
would waive time for sentence, and asked
that tne commitment be made out for San ;
Quentin prison.
Judge Sweeney recited the facts of the
case and asked Jackson if he knew of any j
reason why sentence should not be im- j
posed. At this Attorney Smith arose and !
dwelt on the past good character of the ;
defendant; the fact of his having replaced
the money since his arrest, which was not
necessary and which he could not be
made to produce; also of his saving the
county the cost of a lengthy trial by plead
ing guilty at this time. These facts were
related by Smith as mitigating circum
stances in order to lighten the sentence,
but Judge Sweeney, while explaining the
duties of a Judge in sentencing a criminal
?"■»* painful to the judicial officer, and
that ia this case, owing to the long ac- i
quaiutance, etc., it wa3 particularly so,
still, he said, to conform to his line of
duty he could .»ee no ottier recourse than
to give him a sentence of ten years in San j
Quentin prison.
Jackson seemed to stand it fairly well, |
and after shaking hands with the few I
sympathizers present he was escorted to i
bis ceil in the ja I. He will leave here in
charge of the Sheriff Tuesday night to
serve his time in San Quentin.
Sat tern Cmpttmttwtm JTUI Develop Them
"ii a Large Scale.
REDDING, Cal.. Nov. 19.— A sale of
mining property which will be of untold
benefit to Snasta County and Redding
took place this morning in this city, by
which mining claims that are known to
be rich in gold, but which have never been
'.developed to any considerable extent,
were disposed of to a wealthy company of
New York State, who intend to develop I
and work them on the large scale which
their known wealth certainly deserves.
W. B. Murdoch, a mining expert and
also owner of the claims, conducted the
Bale of the property, wnich is the cele
brated Sybil group of quartz mines, situ
ated in the French Gulch mining district, j
and comprising the Monterey, Louise, I
Rosa and numerous other claims. A
lease of the property had been held by ,
William Brown, but the lease recently !
expired, making the sale possible. In- j
formation of this large transfer was '
obtained from Murdoch himself, still that i
gentleman stated he did not feel at liberty j
to give the purchase price or the name of j
th* company.
The purchasing company is said to be <
backed by great wealth and with its inten- !
tion to develop the property on -a large |
scale, the sale conducted to-day certainly I
means a great thing for French Gulch i
in particular and Shasta County in
general. From all accounts of the
merits of the property "the new owners
have made no mistake in their purchase,
and when great wealth is laid bare on this
property, as it certainly must be worked
on a large scale, with extensive machinery,
etc., the mining realty of Shasta County,
and in fact of all Northern California, will \
ri»e in vaiue, central good times prevail '
and we shall have a taste of the "days of '<
old, the days of gold— the days of '49."
2w« Ban Francisco fJrutntnerM Save a
Perilous Experience.
REDDING, Cal., Nov. 19.— A steady
downpour of rain during the past twenty
hours has caused a rapid rise in the river
and all the streams. The rain has, in
creased since Monday and is falling in tor- {
rents to-night. The rapid ri-e in the |
creeks has been the means of quite a num- !
ber of accidents. H. A. Van Amringe and
R. B. Stevenson, liquor and cigar drura
irers of San Francisco, came near being i
drown- d on their way to this city, between !
here and Cononwood, last night. They I
■were trying to make time and therefore i
were pushing on la*t evnlng, after leav- j
ing Cottonwood, despite the fact that it
was raining hard and had been doing so
for twelve hours. Before reaching Ander
son they had the horses swimming several
times, and on one occasion had to jump
out and swim themselves.
After a long &enes of misfortunes, dur
ing which they several times despaired ot
saving the team, they finally wound up
by getting on n blind road, ran into a
uitch and broke the axle of their bupgy.
This compelled them to camp out the re
mainder of the nk'ht in the rain and mud.
When the morning light finally appeared
they succeeded in getting the services of a
blacksmith and having their nonrepaired,
reachine thi city in the afternoon. They
were nearly exhausted on arriving here,
and consider t emselves extremely fortu
nate in getting out alive.
Small Jliot'at Keivolck.
REDDING, Cal., Nov. 19.— A small sized
riot between mines mil laborers is said
to have been waged at Keswick, where the
big smelters of the mountain mines are
located, four miles irum this city, this
afternoon. No particulars can be iearned
now, but ten complaints have been sworn
out and that number cf rioters will be
arrested tomorrow and brought to this
city for trial.
Uneasiness as to the Whereabouts of
Clark E. Wood, Under Bonds on an
Embezzlement Charge.
FRESNO, Cal., Nov. 19.— N0 one knows
the whereabouts of Clark E. Wood, who
is under $3000 bail to appear in court for
trial whenever wanted on a charge of em
bezzlement, which he is alleged to have
committed while chief ceputy in the
County Clerk's office several months ago.
There are rumors that he has departed
with the intention of never returning, but
his bondsmen are having no fears iv the
matter. Before Wood left he went to Dis
trict Attorney Snow and stated tliat he
had a position at railroading offered him
in Montana which he woald accept if
allowed to leave the State. He said he
would return for trial whenever wanted.
Wood has twice been tried on the embez
zlement charge and both times the jury
disagreed. The District Attorney has
given ud hope of securing a conviction,
and he wilr therefcre have the case dis
missed. He told Wood he could go to
Montana if he couid get employment, and
I that the case would not be brought up for
I trial at least for time. Whether
j Wood went to Montana or not Is not
i known. The last beard of him was when
: he was in San Francisco a few weeks ago.
I But as he will not be wanted for trial
! again his bondsmen are not trying to
i locate him.
Wood embezzled $000 while acting as
I commissioner in a foreclosure sui".. The
money was placed in bis charge, but he
failed to turn it over. He was at tuat time
! chief depuiy in the County Clerk's office.
! Wood fled to the East when demands for
the money were made upon nim, but after
a few weeks he returned and gave himself
; up. He was lormeriy a leading politician,
I and it was through friends that raised
money to employ the best local attorneys
to uefend him that he was finally got out
of the difficulty. That the way of the
transgressor is hard is amply proved in
i Clark Wood's case. Once be was a popu-
I lar and highly successful young man, who
I had the brightest prospects before him,
j but now he has hardily a friend in thecom
| niunity. Since he has been out on bail he
! has proved himself very ungrateful to the
! friends he had.

Thought to Be a 3lodettt> Crook Wanted
for Embezzlement.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., Nov. 19.— A young
man going by the name of Harry Patter
son was arrested here this afternoon for
the crime of embezzlement alleged to have
been committed in Modesto. The accused
man has only been in this city about ten
days, but has . succeeded in gaining the
confidence of the members of the Chris
tian church, of which he claimed to be a
member. He also sang in the choir and
affected great interest in temperance
work. These manifestations of piety were
the cause of his arrest, as the description
receive) from Modesto poinied out with
great minuteness how the swindler had
gained the confidence of tne people there
and what he would probably do at his
next stopping place. The personal de
scription of ibe Modesto crook fits the
man arrested here to a dot and the officers
are confident of having captured the right
man. He s about 25 years of age, speaks
with an English accent and is a smooth
and plausible talker. A telegram received
to-night from the Modesto officers says to
hold ihe suspect by all means as he is un
doubtedly the right man and if so a dan
gerous coi:Ddence operator.
CARSON'S assavlt CASE.
Editor Sam Davit Declines to Promeeute
His Assailant-
CARSON, Nev., Nov. 19.— The assault
by the United States District Attorney
yesterday on the editor of the Appeal
grew out of a charge made by the Appeal
that the attorney feared to proceed with
the prosecution of the Coffin contempt
case, and also charged him with neglect
of duly and general ;esal i-icoia! etence.
In an editorial this morning the Appeal
reiterates the charges, but the editor de
ciines to resort to legal means to protect
himself from further assault and refuses
to swear to a complaint. Dr. Guion, how
ever, at the request ot citizens, has noti
fied the authorities that he will swear to
the complaint, and a dozen witnesses of
the most reputable character have offered
to testify that they saw the assault made
with brass or st«el knuciles and a aix
shooter. The question of jurisdiction has
been raised, and the local authorities are
conferring with the United States authori
ties regarding the matter, as the assault
was committed by a United States Gov
ernment officer in front of the Postoffice,
on ground belonging to the Government.

District Attorney Bell's
Elcquent Plea fcr
Closely Reviews the Chain o!
Evidence Against the
At'.orney John T. York Follows for
the Defense — Prosecution to
C:o;e To-Day.
NAPA, Cal., Nov. 19.— Court reconrened
; this morning and the trial of Wililam
; Moore was continued. District Attorney
I Bell made an eloquent plea to the jury for
the prosecution, speaking substantially as
If it please the court and gentlemen of the
j jury, we should congratulate ourselves upon
nearing the close of this case, and ior a cai-e of
this magnitude we should not complain of the
time that has been consumed in it. Thi6 is the
j most important trial that has ever been held
j in the county of Xapa. It is an unusual thing
i for twelve men to be drawn from the body of
' the county for the purpose of passing upon
the issue of murder. It is true we have had
I such cases here before; but the prominenceof
the victim in this case and her husband, the
deep atrociousness of the crime, the utter wan
t tonness and malignity shown by the assassins,
! place this charee at the head of all crimes that
have ever been committed in our immediate
vicinity. And now, as we approach the close
j of his trial, the duty devolves upon me as
I your District Attorney and as the representa
j tive of the people of the State of California
in this action to di>cusa the evidence
that has been produced before you in this case
and to analyze the testimony of the witnesses
and state to you my views, whether you act
upon them or not, as to what I think shou.d
be accepted as true or what should be discred
ited as false. At this time, in order that we
may give this case the attention it c.a ms at
our hands and deserves, we should lay aside
| every other consideration that may arise, lay
| aside all other business that may come in our
; minds and concentrate every faculty and our
| entire attention upon the one great momen
tous question that confronts us, and it seems
to me we can better understand the circum
stances attending the terrible killing of Mrs.
Greenwood on that fatal night if we will for a
few moments forget the scenes here in court
I and turn back the hand of time for a peroid of
| nearly six years and take a view of the home
> of the Greenwoods on two days and a night in
; the month of February, 1891.
The District Attorney then graphically
j pictured that home before and after the
I assassins had entered, and continued:
In discussing this case I shall try to be as
I fair to the defendant as I am to the people
< whom I represent I will discuss the evidence
; and take it up in its logical order.
The District Attorney then brought lor
i ward in a masterly manner the evidence
i introduced by the prosecution He ex
plained and narrated again the terrible
events of the night of February 9, 1891, as
told by Captain Greenwood on the wit
ness-stand. The testimony of the other
witnesses was then referred to by Mr. Beli
| substantially as follows:
Hugh Kei'y, on tne following morning, dis-
J covered Mr. Greenwood wounded by the road
; side, and went to the Greenwood nouse and
saw the dead body of Mrs. Greenwood ljing on
! the bed. Sheriff McKenzte corroborated this
testimony. Drs. Pond aud Haun of Napa and
Professor Price of San Francisco examined the
organs of the stomach of Mrs. Greenwood and
found positive evidence that Mrs. Gretnwood
had been poisoned. Peter Lynch related how
Moore had worked for him.
Fred Stemmle related how on the eighth day
of February he purchased from Schmidt a sil
ver watch formerly owned by Moore. Stemmle
also identified Moore as the man being with
Schmidt in Vallejo on the eighth day of Feb
ruary, 1891. H. L. Amstut* identified the
watch as one repaired by him in December,
1890, at the request of Mr. Lynch, who 6aid
the watc!i belonged to William Moore. Sev
eral wltr.e-.ses along the Va.lejo read testified
that Schmidt and Moore, or men answering
their description, had passed up the road
toward > apa on the day of February 9. Mrs.
Holland positively Identified the defendant ai
the man seen on that day. Jake Shorer and
others identified Moore as the man who went
to the German house on the nigntof the mur
der. George Knox related how Moore, a short
time previous to the murder, had possessed a
battle of chloroform, the bottle similar to ihe
one seeu by Captain Greenwood on the night
of the murder. He also testified that the pis
tol discovered under the bridge was formerly
owned by Moore.
The District Attorney then referred to
the motive that bad prompted Moore in
making the confessions to W. B. Schaug
and others, saying that remorse of the
prisoner had been the prompting motive.
He referred to the confession itself, say
ing that no one but the person who had
participated in the murder conld narrate
so accurately what happened on that
awful night. The District Attorney elo
quently closed his argument to the jury
by asking that justice be meted out to the
prisoner at the bar.
At the conclusion of the argument by
the District Attorney, John T. York made
bis closing argument for the defense, in '
which he said:
We appear fu'ly realizing the importance oi
thU case, realizing that the defendant Is a
man irom the lower walks of life, without
money, influence and friends. In criminal
cases a defendant fs innocent until proven
guilty. How much more is this true in a case
where a man's life is at stake. He must oe
considered innocent until proven guilty be
yond a reasonable doubt. There has been
strong circumstantial evidence introduced in
this trial against the defendant, but this chain
of evidence cannot be stronger than iv
weaken 'ink.
Mr. York referred to the good reputa
tion and character of the defendant while
working in d.fferent parts of the State,
and then spoke of the mental con! i ion of
defendant when he made his alleged con
Mr. Beerstecher then closed on the part
of the defense by a most eloquent p:ea to
the jury. He referred to the prisoner's
good character, to his mental condition
when making the confessions and to the
inconsistency of the confessions to the
real facts in the case.
Mr. Gesiord will close for the prosecu
tion to-morrow morning.
