IS PRINCE OF MINIG OPERATORS Sensation Caused by the Arrival of Frank L. Gardner. HIS PRESENCE WAS A SECRET. Barnato's Adviser Has Been Busy Examining Mines on the Mother Lode. GUEST OF A FEW BIG FimflEßS. Mr. Gardner Is Worth Between $30, --000,000 and $40,000,000, and Is Known as ''The Kector." Frank L. Gardner of London, one of tbe most distinguished and wealthiest mining engineers in the world, the adviser for the late Barney Barnato and other great mining kings, has been in San Francisco and vicinity for the past two weeks. He came to examine into the mines and ascertain the opportunities for making in vestments. He has visited the mother lode, and also examined some of the mines of Placer County and other places in a preliminary way. He is favorably im pressed with what he saw. Mr. Gardner's visit here has been kept a profound secret. He has not registered at any hotel, although he has had rooms at tho Palace for the reception of friends who were aware of his presence. His coming has been a sensation in the inner circles among financiers and big mining men. Mr. Gardner left on the Central Pacific overland for New York last night, but he is expected to return here soon, and will probably take up some very important mining properties. He met W. H. Crocker, Charles D. Lane, Alvinza Hayward, Joseph D. Redding and other well-known people while here. He also went with Mr. Hayward to Nevada for a short time, lt has been learned that while here he was the guest of J. H. Doolittle of the Gould and Doo little mine at his residence, Page and Shrader streets. His family, consisting of his wife, niece and sister-in-law, besides a retinue of servants, were with him. An effort has been made to keep Mr. Gardner's visit from being known. He desired it himself, and his wishes have been strictly observed. However, these details were gathered yesterday. Joe Redding met him abroad and since his arrival here has been with him a great deal. Mr. Gardner has long been known as ""the rector" because of his quaint ways a.;id abstemious habits. It is said he sr.ands higher in Europe than any other adviser on all financial matters. lie now wants to buy some big Califor nia mines, and it was because of this that he visited the mining regions in person. He is worth from $30,000,000 to $40,000,000. It was Mr. Gardner who laid the ground work of all the great deals for the Bar natos. He was their adviser, and, it is said, carried them through. He is about 44 years of age, with dark hair and mus tache, and has a quiet manner. Mr. Gardner is one of the heaviest own ers in the leading mines at Johannesburg, "Kimberly, Perth, " Coolgardie and else where, owning, as is stated, all over the world in gold, diamond and silver prop erties. He is a practical mining man, highly educated in all the branches of the business. He is an American, too, but for many years has made his headquar ters in London. He is now on his way to Paris, and on reaching New YorK will take a steamer of one of the French lines .for that city. He will return here in the fall. >>It is expected that some very large mining transactions will be made through him, affecting Cali fornia and bringing much money to the State. CHINESE MUEDER. Chun Ah Chun on Trial for Hit Life in Judge Dunne's Court. Chun Ah Chun, charged with murder for complicity in the murder of Gin Lum Lee, a Chinese druggist, on the 4th of last October, is on trial in Judee Dunne's de partment of the Superior Court.

So far as the testimony has been devel oped the prosecution will claim that Chun was hired to point out the murdered man, and that Chin Ah Wall, his accomplice, did the shooting. Wah has been already convicted of murder in the tirst degree and is serving a life sentence in the State prison.

How a Wily and Persistent Mover Manages to Get Into the Houses of Others. George Zimmerman, a drayman of this City, enjoys the unique distinction of hav ing been evicted from dwellings he has occupied more than any man the Sheriff's orhce has yet had to deal with. During the past six years he has been put out of at least two dozen houses for which he has refused to pay rent and it has come to such a pass .that he is on the blacklist of several real estate offices and cannot rent a dwelling from them at any price. Zimmerman seems to rather enjoy be ing put out of the houses that he pre empts, and smilingly refuses to move or pay rent when the agent of the house he happens to be in informs him that be must take either alternative. According to the deputies of the Sher iff's office, who have evicted him so many times that they have almost lost count of the number, the drayman has several methods of getting into houses before his identity is discovered. When his house- hold effects have been carried into the street by perspiring deputies, he has his wagons ready and loads them in a few moments. Then he starts driving the stuff himself until he locales a house which strikes his fancy. Usually the key is at some corner grocery, and he sends one of his children in to get it on the plea that the mother is waiting at the house to examine it. The wagons are waiting at some loca tion around the corner and out of sight, and the key once in his possession, it takes the drayman but a few moments to un load his effects and place them where only a legal process can get him out. On a few occasions Zimmerman has called for the key himself, saving that his wife is pleased with the outward appearance of the dwell ing and wants to see the interior. The result is almost invariably the same. Zimmerman gets possession, the rent Is not forthcoming, and the Sheriff is called upon to perform his periodical duty. During Sheriff Laumeister's adminis tration Zimmerman was evicted eighteen times, and since Sheriff Whelan took the reins tlie deputies have the Zimmerman belongings so often that they know every individual piece as well as they do their own. W Yesterday the drayman was assisted out of the house at 33 East avenue, and some time ago was compelled to vacate the premises at 1315 San Jose avenue. In December, 1895, he was evicted Irom 10 Wool street. It is the usual custom to grant those I who are evicted a few days in which to j find new quarters, but Zimmerman has given so much annoyance in this line that he is to be ejected summarily in future, as [ he was under other administrations. FOLLY OF A YOUNG GIRL Hattie Heritage Thought She Could Not Live With- out Her Friend. She Swallowed a Dose of Arsenic and It Is Doubtful if She Will Recover. Hattie Heritage, a pretty girl 15 years old, attempted to commit suicide Inst evening at her parents' residence, 119 Sil ver street, by swallowing a dose of arsenic. On April 4 the girl's constant com panion and friend, Emily Griffiths, com mitted suicide in the name maimer. Her lover, James Strice, had decided to go to Los Angeles and Emily met him by ap pointment on the night before he was to leave at Fourth and Harrison streets. She pleaded with him not to go away and leave her and when she could not shake his resolution she told him she had before leaving her home to keep the appoint ment put some arsenic in a bottleiul of soda water and had swallowed it. ■ Sirice rushed her to the Receiving Hos pital and everything possible was done for her, but the poison had already taken effect and she died. The unexpected death of her companion made Hattie despondent and she was con stantly grieving at her loss. Almost every day she visited her grave, carrying with her a bunch of flowers. She would remain beside the grave for hours, weep ing and bewailing her loss. She told her parents and friends that she could not live without Emily. She had been a particularly bright and cheer ful girl before her friend's death, and it was hoped that time would bring her round again. During the absence of her parents last evening Hattie went to a corner grocery and bought a box of rough on rats and a bottle of soda water. She went home, and emptying the soda water into a tumbler poured in, nearly ail the box of arsenic and swallowed the contents. After swallowing the poison she became remorse-stricken, and rushing out of the house, met a brother of Emily Griffiths and told bim she bad taken poison. She begged him to take her to a doctor, but he ran till he came across a policeman, who summoned the patrol-wagon, and she was driven to the Receiving Hospital. Dr. Thompson at once applied the usual remedies, and it is possible that the, girl may recover. Ironclads and ttig Guns. Irving M.

DESPERATE MEASURES INVOKED Writ to Restrain Judge Campbell From Forfeit ing Lawrence's Bail. ISSUED IX JUDGE SEAWELL'S COURT Examiner Defendants Are Scam pering to the Woods of British Columbia. HEARST IS lEEPLIG IS THE DARK Glaus Spreckels Firm in His Purpose to Corral the Whole Herd of Libelers. A. M. Lawrence, one of the Examiner defendants in the Claus Spreckels libel suits, was arrested last -Wednesday on a charge of criminal libel and was before the Police Court yesterday. Charles S. Aiken, for whom a warrant was sworn out, has skipped, and it is said that he is in British Columbia or or. his way there. Livernas'i started for the British Pos sessions shortly after the first suit was in stituted by Mr. Spreckels. Livernasb is supposed to have been in some position of authority about the Examiner office J when Mr. Spreckels was accused of holding up the stockholders of the Watsonvilie Sugar Company. Hearst is still under cover in New York, and using every precaution to keep out of sight. Williams is commonly supposed to hold a power of attorney from the absent Hearst, but on tbe advice of counsel refused to answer a question on that point before Notary Craig. When committed for contempt ior refusal to an swer the question, Dick Whelan, tbe Sher iff, and Pat Reddy, the Sheriff's lawyer, decided that a notary had no power to punish for contempt. Williams was not arrested for criminal libel. It is said that he agreed with the Examiner lawyers that Hearst ought to admit service and lace the music. The general break of the defendants for cover may delay Claus Spreckels in his purpose to bring Hearst to the bar of jus tice, but the plaintiff, in these cases has entered the contest with a firm determina tion to bring the responsible man of the concern which Lawrence is supposed to represent to a reckoning. The attention of the interior press of this State is called to this spectacle in modern metropolitan journalism. Here is the Examiner boasting every day that it is a fearless exponent of journalism, and yet when it is put to the test before the law no man can be found in the estab lishment witling to acknowledge responsi bility lor anything that is printed in the paper.* The great fighters for the people break for British Columbia timber as soon as a determined man goes after the jour nal for proper redress in court. The sentiment of nine-tenths of the peo ple of San Francisco as expressed in daily comment is that Hearst lias shown him self to be a weakling. Alter all the lury and bravado of independent and fearless journalism he hides behind a residence recently acquired in New York to shield bimseli. He makes a'great show ol bold ness when the adversary is some weak, broken-down politician or workingman without influence, means or capacity to resist attack, but as on as a resolute man is encountered who will stand neither bluffing nor evasion the boasteJ expounder of tearless journalism cannot be found. He has fallen so low in the estimation of newspaper people that his own employes are ashamed of his course. If punish ment lor contempt was universal his own lawyers would be punished for contempt of their client. Andrew M. Lawrence was to have been arraigned yesterday morning before Po lice Jud^e Campbell. Just as the wily hireling of W. R. Hearst did when arraigned before the last Legislature, and as he has done in the Federal courts, he wriggled and dodged the i«sue. refusing to appear and answer to the crime of which he is accused. With the assistance of three attorneys and one Superior Judge Andrew M. Law rence managed to avoid doing what other men in this community have been com pelled to do ever since the Police Courts have been established. ', Charged with a misdemeanor, he refused to obey a com mitting magistrate's order, and has suc ceeded to that extent at least that he has obtained a delay by clogging up the records. ■'."•" / When the case was called in the morn ing Attorney Barnes stated that he did not deem it necessary to have Lawrence present, and he, as counsel, would plead for Mm. This was objected to by Attorney Grove L. Johnson, representing the people of the State. He argued that the law re quired the delendant to plead in person at his arraignment bufore the Police Court. General Barnes quoted one authority showing that his position was sustained, but Attorney Johnson pointed out to the court that the > authority was only appli cable to cases in the Superior Court. The case went over until 2 p. m., but Lawrence was not then present. "1 desire to acquit General Barnes of any ulterior motives," stated Attorney Johnson addressing the court, "but it is my belief that the line being pursued is a cunning attempt to take this matter out of the jurisdiction of both this and the Superior Court. '■"'."'lf the delendant be not present for ar raignment and has no opportunity in per son to examine witnesses or cross-exam- me them, as is his privilege according to the statutes, and he be held over to he tried before the Superior Court, the plea for a dismissal there will be made with all legal right that the delendant was not permitted to cross-examine witnesses, and in lact was not present before the commit ting magistrate at the time of the ar raignment. This would be sufficient cause to have the case thrown out of court. "Who and what is this defendant A. M. Lawrence -that he should be treated with any more consideration; than any other man accused of a public offense?" Attorney Johnson cited the case of Fitch and Pickering, who were arraigned some years ago in the Police Court before the Hon. David Louderback. The speaker represented the defendants and pleaded that it was unnecessary to have them pres ent. Judge Louderback took a different view of the matter, and thereafter the de fendants were in court every day of t»ie examination. ; ~ Ex-Judge'Louderback, who is of coun sellor Theodore Figel, sat next to Attor ney Johnson as the latter was " recalling the proceedings of years gone - by, and unconsciously nodded : his head >in acquiticance, Judge -Campbell observing the nodding and gently smiling mean while. :.;- '■• v;\ "Call Andrew Iff. Lawrence," ordered Judee Campbell, addressing the bailiff. "One moment!" exclaimed Attorney Ciunie. "Before you call him I would like to be heard in this matter." I- V "Call Andrew M. Lawrence first, Mr. Bailiff, and I will hear you afterward." Lawrence made no response, and Ciunie stated that of course the defendant would be produced if the court so desired. : "I am here as one of counsel with Gen eral Barnes and Mr. McEnerney. T. c latter is momentarily detained in another court and he would like to be heard in this matter. "1 would ask, then, that the case be continued over until to-morrow morn ing at 9 or 10 o'clock" "I will Ire busy Tit that time myself." said the court. "I will let the matter stand for an hour. At 3:3o»o'ciock this afternoon you must have (ha defendant in court or I shall declare his Loud forfeited and shall have to send and pet him." At the appointed hour Attorney Ciunie came into court without Lawrence, but with an order issued by Superior Judge Seawell restraining Judge Campbell from issuing a bench-warrant for the arrest of Liwrence and from forfeiting the bond. The oraer likewise set the hearing on that particular bond and warrant question for Aueust 23 at it) a. m. before the Superior Court. "Under the circumstances," stated Judge Campbell, "I do not very well see how 1 can proceed with the hearing of the case. lam firmly convinced that lam riirbt In law io insist on the defendant be ing present in person at bin arraignment, but I can do nothing to brine him here or in the matter of lorfeiting his bond in the face of that restraining order. What do yor. think of it, Mr. Johnson?" "Your Honor," answered counsel, "that order is not worlh the paper it is written on, and I, for one, as counsel, would go on with the case as if it had not been is sued." ';■•'.' Judge Campbell caused some merri ment by asking the attorney: "And will you go to jail for me if Ido proceed?" ' - '/'' ,:.'j "-Mr. Barnes and I are ready to goon with the case, as we proposed to do from the start, without the presence of Mr. Law rence," said Ciunie. To this Attorney Johnson objected, and the case was set for Saturday morning, to be reset then if it were not possible to have Judge Seawell shorten the period when the hearing is to be had in the Su perior Court. Immediately after this movement on the part ol Lawrence's counsel to delay the proceedings and to shield the de fendant from the gaze of Police Court spectators Grove L. Johnson filed a peti tion, as follows, to set aside the order of prohibition: In the Superior Court of the City and County of San Francisco, State of California. Andrew M. Lawrence, petitioner and plain tiff, vs. J. A. Campbell as Judge of the Police Court of the City and County of San Francisco, delendant and respondent. You and each of you will please take notice that on Monday, the 16th day of August, 1897, at the opening of court on that day at 10 a. m., or as soon thereafter as counsel can. be heard, the above-named defendant and respondent will move this honorable court and Hon. J. M. Seawell, presiding Judge and Judge thereof, at the courtroom of said court. Department 1, in the new City Kail, San Francisco, < alifor nia. to dissolve, vacate, set aside and dismiss the writ of prohibition herein issued by the said court on the 12ih day of August, 1897, on the ground that the same was Improperly, im p-ovidently and illegally Issued, and that the affidavit and petition upon which the same wis issued did not and does not state facts sufficient to authorize the issuance of said writ or any writ of prohibition, or to constitute any cause of action against this defendant respondent, and upon the hearing of this motion defendant and respondent will rely upon all the papers on file in his action and proceeding and oral and documentary evi dence then and there to be produced. Dated san Francisco, August 12, 1897. J. A. Spiuetti and Johnson, Linlorth <fc WhitaKer, attorneys for defendant and re spondent, to Andrew M. Lawrence, peti tioner and plaintiff, and W. H. L. Barnes, Garret W. McEnerney and A. J. Ciunie, at torneys for said petitioner aud plaintiff. This proceeding, instituted in Judge Sea well's court to prevent a forfeiture of Lawrence's bail in the Police Court, may strike lawyers as well as laymen as some what extraordinary, but it must be borne in mind that the Examiner defendants are in a desperate situation. It is pos sible that Judge Seawell was misled by a one-sided statement of the case. No reason seems to have been shown why an Examiner defendant, charged with having committed a crime, should not appear in court just the same as any other offender. The facts in the case will be presented in full when the petition for vacating the order of prohibition comes up next Mon day. It is safe to predict that Lawrence will be compelled to attend the sessions of the Police Court before the trial is finished or suffer a forfeiture of his bond. The arrest of ..Lawrence is merely an in cident of the proceedings instituted by Claus Spreckels. Lawrence is only a subordinate who is supposed to have some authority derived from Hearst to repre sent the absent proprietor. He was asked some questions before Notary Craig which he declined to answer, and he will be a«ked other questions before the same notary. The Sheriff may be called upon again to discharge his duty, and the pub lic will be invited to see what course he will pursue. It is well understood that Hearst will pull every string that can be reached to delay the proceedings, for he Knows by this time that ultimately he must re spond. Tricks of the law, evasions and scampering out of town to dodge service of summons will he common enough be fore the trial is ended. Every shifty dodge to evade responsibility in court weakens Hearst in the estimation of the com munity and deprives his paper of influ ence. BEBSHfi WsSJmS ■••■-"-'■ - THE SACRAMENTO CASE.

"In view of the opinion which Redly, Campbell & Metson rendered to the Bneriff, and which is published herewith, it is inter esting to note the decision rendered by the Superior Court of Sacramento County in the Weinstock - McCluichy case. In that suit this law firm, now the adviserof the Sheriff of San Francisco, was the counsel of record for the plaintiff, McClatchy. Elaborate argument was made to convince the court that the notary had power to punish for contempt, and the court, hearing the argument and consider ing the numerous authorities presented, ren dered this decision: " 'I then must conclude, from the high au thority given, that notaries have power under our statutes to punish for contempt a witness who refuses to answer a question proper to be asked.' "The lawyers employed to advise the Sheriff were not led into ambush. The brief which Johnson. Liuforili & Whitaker handed over to Reddy, Carupoell &■ Mctson contained a cita tion of the Sacramento case, and Mr. Ready knew when he advised the Sheriff that nota ries had no power to punish for contempt that a decision to the contrary had been rendered in a case in which his firm was counsel of record and in which a client of the firm gained the paint ut issue-" Reddy, Campbell & Mctson were of counsel in that case. The briefs made In this office and sent to Messrs.

It Is true that I knew of the decision rendered by Judge Johnson in Sacramento, but with all the respect 1 entertain for the learning and ability of that gentleman, I differ from him on the law in question. Mr. Hiram W.

Attorney Frank Titus and Miss Mabel Love were married at sea early Wednes day morning, on the tug Amy. The wedding party, which consisted of a friend of the bride and a friend of the groom, were driven hurriedly from the Cafe Zinkand about midnight Tuesday, to the tug, which lav at the Folsom-street wharf. In a few minutes, the little craft was steaming through the Golden Gate, and once outside the Heads the ceremony was soon over. The reason the couple were married in that way was, they say, to make the cere mony legal. Mr. Titus was divorced but a few months ago, and the law makes it illegal for a divorced person to marry in the State before a year after the granting of a divorce. As in other States where the law has been tested, the way to avoid the law is to go to some sister State whore there is no such law, or, as in this case, be married at sea. It has been given as the opinion of many good lawyers that the marriage is perfectly valid. The bride is the daugh ter of Mrs. Josephine Love, a well-Known teacher in the Denman Grammar School. Speaking of the matter yesterday, she j said: "The engagement of my daughter to ! Mr. Titus has been known to me for sev | eral months. . They would have been married long ago but for the fact that Mr. Titus is a divorced man, and the law, as you know, stood in the way of their being married in this State before the expira tion of a year from the time of his separa tion. • "We, that is Mr. Titus, his father, my daughter and myself, had arranged for a trip to Reno, where the ceremony could be performed, but it would seem that the young couple were too impatient and took the quicker although less pleasant means of marrying. "I regret that they did so, but now that it is done I am glad to extend to them my blessing, and I am certain that Mr. Titus' father entertains the same feelings." ' -[•'} Davis Will Content.
