SHOOTING OF
HENNESSEY
ACCIDENTAL
Rancher Owen Tells
of the Franklin
Tragedy.
Did Not Intend to Fire at
the Man He Believed
a Thief.
His Gun Discharged as He
Stumbled While Walking in
the Darkness.
DEATH OF THE HIRED MAN.
Fell at the Feet of His Employer, Who
was to Have Been the Victim
of His Joke.
Special dispatch to The Call.
SACRAMENTO, Dec. IS— lt now ap
pers that not only was the killng of
Matt Hennessey by Hon. Eben Owen
unintentional, but purely accidental.
So general is the feeling exonerating
Mr. Owen that the Sheriff has per
mitted him to go on his own recogni
zance.
"For several years past there has
been numerous petty robberies in "the
county around my ranch," said Mr.
Owen to-day. "Several of my neigh
bors had their houses entered, and pro
visions and clothing were stolen.
Several shots have been fired at the
marauders, and there has been a gen
eral feeling of insecurity. A great
many farmers have had their chicken
roosts robbed, and I myself within the
past two months have had meat stolen
from the ranch dairy house, and have
missed sundry other articles around
the ranch. I have also been under the
impression that my flock of chickens .
has been dwindling in size.
"These robberies have been discussed
at the table when the hired men were
present, and I have stated in conver
sation at the table that I would be
tempted to shoot a thief as I would a
highway robber. The men who worked
for me thoroughly understood my
views in regard to petty thieves.
"A few evenings ago . we were
aroused by the barking of the dogs.
Thinking that someone was prowling
about the place I took my gun and
went outside. One of my hired men
took a rifle Hennessey accompanied
us. We went out toward the dairy
house, but could see nothing, the night
was bo dark, .but from the way the
dogs acted I was of the impression
that they had seen something. We
'seeked' the dogs on and I fired my gun
into the air. The dogs gave chase, and
we followed them, only to find that
they were chasing one of my mules.
Hennessey seemed to think that this
was very funny, and kept joking me
about it after that and laughing up
roariously.
"We had supper last night as usual
that is, at 6 o'clock. After supper the
men went out and fed and watered the
teams. My room in the house is a sort
of general sitting room. I allow the
men to sit there and read and talk
when they want to. Last night they
did not come into the sitting room,
but went upstairs to bed. J. B. Stev
ens and his son were in the sitting
room with me, and we were talking to
gether by the fire. My housekeeper
was in the kitchen. About 7 o'clock
my housekeeper came to the door and
said that something was wrong with
the chickens. I picked up my shot
gun, which is a hammerless affair,
and which was loaded with No. 6 bird
shot, and walked to the outside door,
where I stood and listened. I could
hear nothing, and, remarking to my
housekeeper that she must be mis
taken, I returned to my place by the
fire, leaving her and young Stevens
standing listening in the doorway. A
moment later I distinctly heard a*
chicken cry out as though it were be
ing choked.
"The moment the gun was dis
charged the cry of 'Oh, oh,* came from
the tree, and instantly the body of a
man fell to the ground. I yelled and
the folks came running from the house.
Ona man brought a rifle and Stevens
a lantern. He held the lantern near
the man's face, and we saw it was
Hennssey. He gasped once or twice
and died. The charge of bird shot
had entered his breast just in front of
his heart.
"I cannot understand the matter at
all. I don't know whether he was try
ing to steal the chickens or had
climbed the tree to play a practical
joke. He could not have been stealing
the chickens, for what could he do
with them? And then there was no ev
idence that he had done more than to
choke the chickens to make them cry
On the other hand, I cannot under
stand how a sane man would have at
tempted to joke in any such way "
Harry Owen, the brother of Eben
Owen, who was present when the lat
ter was being interviewed, declared
that yesterday morning Matt Hennes
sey had been telling him about Eben
having taken a mUle for a chicken
thief.
"Matt laughed uproariously about
the matter." Harry Owen said, "and
referred to the mule as Eben's chick
en thief. He seemed to think it very
funny." "
Continuing Harry said that Matt
Hennessey -was a man who was al
ways joking. He was a good-natured
fellow and was full of good stories of
experiences he had while leading the
life of a tramp.

ODD FELLOWS OF WOODLAND.
WOODLAND, Dec. 18.— Odd Fellowship seems to be having a healthy boom in Yolo County. No other order
has so large a membership. There are six subordinate lodges located at Woodland, Davisville, Winters, Knight's
landing, Black's and Capay, having an aggregate membership of 420. There are three Rebekah Degree lodges, one
at Woodland, one at Winters and one at Blacks, and all are in a strong and prosperous condition. There is one
encampment. It was organized in this city on the 20th of May, 18S4, is known as Encampment No. 71, and now
has a membership of fifty. The officers are: Ed Toothaker, past chief patriarch; J. L. Dennis, chief patriarch; H.
T. Barnes, high priest; T. H. Heidtman, senior warden; Fred Ascher, junior warden; Carl Barr, treasurer; W. N.
Masters, scribe, and H. C. Howard, K. J. Clanton and C. E. Truck, trustees. An all-night meeting is now in progress
at which the degree has been conferred upon twenty candidates, as follows: George I-:. Clark, Jno. Leathers, Frank
Hulburt, 11. J. Arvedson. J. A. Murray, A. L. Ludden, John Campbell, W. G. Irvin, Peter Crosse. D. Wyckhoff, C. E.
French, A. M. Britt, F. J. Bender, James Benassim, A. M. Cook, D. L. Hunt, Robert Lee, J. S. Scott, J. A. Turner
and Claude Tisdale.
A degree team, representing the two Sacramento encampments, Occidental and Pacific, arrived on the even
ing train. The team consisted of twenty-six members. At midnight an adjournment was taken to the Hotel Ju
lian, where a sumptuous banquet was served. At this hour feasting, merry-making and speech-maKing is going
on. After the banquet the company will return to the encampment hall and degree work will continue until
morning.
THE TALENT
IN BAD FORM
j Bliss Rucker Was the
Only Winning Choice
at Oakland.
Napamax, in Poor Fettle, Was
Easily Defeated.
Conley First on Alvero, a SO to 1 Shot.
Yankee Doodle Got a Close
Decision.
The Burns & Waterhouse entries did
not pass such a bad day of it after all
at Oakland yesterday. The two-year
old Bliss Rucker scampered away with
the Burlingame stake and the fast
mare Shasta Water showed her heels
to some rapid company in the high
weight handicap. . The other two en
tries, made in different events, ran be
hind the money, not because the con
ditions did not suit them, but for lack
of speed. Altogether, it was a most
unhealthful day for the talent.
They started off on the wrong foot,
and apparently never got straightened
out. The win of Bliss Rucker marked
the only victory of a favorite through
out the afternoon.
Longshot Conley started in by taking
the first race with Alvero, an outsider,
with SO to 1 about him in the betting.
The field was a large one, and the fav
orite. La Mascotte, looked a winner up
to the last few yards, when Conley
came with a rush astride the despised
one and won by a head. Kamsln. the
second choice, far and away the best,
was third.
Then came the seven furlong run for
two year old fillies. It was said that
Napamax was herself again, but her
ragged showing did not indicate such.
St. Calatine, with plenty of 7 to 2 about
her in the ring, led all the way and
won easily from Martha 11, which came
with a great burst of speed, snatch
Rheumatism is a disease
Of the blood. The way
To cure it promptly
And permanently is to
Take Hood's Sarsaparilla
Which acts directly upon
The blood, neutralizing the
Acid and curing the
Sharp pains, stiff joints
And aching muscles.

ing the place from the pegged out
choice.
The Burlingame stake, over a mile,
drew out but a small field of four
starters. Coupled in the betting Bliss
Rucker and Altamax were odds-oil
choices, with Senator Bland next in de
mand at 5 to 2. It proved a tame af
fair from the beginning. Bliss Rucker
went out in the lead and made a run
away race of it, winning from the
jump. Altamax, his stable mate, was
an easy .second over Buckwa. Senator
Bland was outrun from the send-off.
Speir's crack sprinter O'Connell was
completely snowed in in the high
weight handicap. Asked to carry 135
pounds, Conley could never get him
near the front, and finished in fifth
place. In a furious drive through the
stretch, by superb riding, Thorpe got
the second choice, Shasta Water, home
a head in advance of McLight. Out in
front for the greater part of the dis
tance, Bellicose "dogged" it badly and
was unplaced.
The hurdle handicap furnished an
other upset. Dan Honlg's jumper Our
Climate, was pounded down from twos
to an even money chance, but Was cut
down when half the distance had been
traveled and was led over the line by
the rank outsider Malo Diablo, piloted
by Cooper. Captain Rees was third.
Mainstay was played for a good
thing in the last race and finished be
hind the coin. All sorts of money went
in on him at odds of 8 to 5, but Midas
ran his head off the first five furlongs,

Since the deadly epidemic of La
Grippe came from Russia in iS.'O there
has been no remedy so successful as
Dr. Humphreys' Specific "77." It
meets the epidemic condition and is
the cure for all its manifestations;
I taken early cuts it short promptly;
i taken during its prevalence it preoccu-
pies the. system and prevents its inva-
sion; taken while suffering from it a
, relief is speedily realized.
The headache, backache and influ-
enza are of comparatively small conse-
quence and are easily controlled, but
the cough or bronchial irritation is
most serious, particularly in the feeble
or when the vitality is impaired; hence,
the danger and necessity of promptand
continued use of "77" until every ves-
tige of the disease is eradicated.

DR. PIERCES BELT
Cures Disease Without Medicine.
OTHER BELTS CAN BE HAD; SOME
very cheap and others very high: but if
you want the BEST you MUST have Dr.
Pierces We could fill this whole newspaper
with letters received from people who have
been cured by Dr. Pierces Belt, but we won't
do it: would cost too much, and then we should
have to charge very high prices for the belts,
like the "quacks" do who put such big* adver-
tisements in the papers. The following letter
is like hundreds of others which we now have
on hand. Read it carefully:
IT CURED HIS BACK.
riainsburp:. Cal., August 21, V*ll.
"DR PIERCE & S. .v. San Francisco— Gen-
tlemen: Once again 1 address yon, this time to
order a -"!" belt. The one you sent me last Oc-
tober was a beauty, and the party for which I
ordered it was well pleased with its effect on
him: so much so Indeed that I have never
heard him complain of his back hurting him
since. Bo please mail one of your No. - Chain
Belt! complete to Mr. of Plainsburg, Cal.,
and I will take the chances of having him say
it did not help him. I remain, yours truly,
"GEORGE A. KAHL."
