W saro" Stanyau, not long BSO a
prosperous insurance man of
thfa city, but who disappeared
boob after marrying a woman
who already t l>ad a husband,
has been found. He Is lying In
the County Jail of San Bernar
dino County* bring: held as a
witness to the murder of Fred
Hldridge, a peddler, which oc
curred tn the mountains near
that place. He Is ragged and
unkempt and bears the appear
ance of a hobo. His story of
his wanderings since he left
San Francisco shows that
much of the time he has led
the life of a tramp, and has
tried to drown the past in al
cohol. He gave his name when
taken Into custody as Samuel
J&ckson. His identity wns^ dis
covered through a letter he
wrote to a friend here. He
' says domestic troubles caused
his flight.

"Sam" Stanyan is in a cell of the Coun
ty Jail at San Bernardino." The" mystery
furrounding the sudden disappearance of
this well-known San '\u25a0' Francisco . broker,
who left his home and~nEWly '; wedded wife
on March 30 of last year and who had
never been heard of here again until yes
terday, is completely cleared up. A tele
gram to The Call from San Bernardino '
proves without a doubt that a man shab
bily dressed and jailed at San Bernar
dino to be held as a witness is Stanyan.
Samuel Stanyan is held in San Bernar
dino under the name of Samuel Jackson
as a witness, he having admitted seeing
the murder of Ernest Homo In the moun
tains on September 6, Fred Eldridge,
Romo's partner, being accused of the
Stanyan is dressed like a common tramp
and he was arrested with a crowd of
drunken acquaintances. Unlike in former
years, when he appeared in his office
dressed in clothes of the latest cut, dia
monds adorning his fingers and a general
air of prosperity about him. Stanyan is
now merely a weary hobo, one of the
great class which works a little , and
trends the rest of the time In Idleness.
Stanyan, or Jackson, as he now calls
himself, made the confession to Sheriff
Ralphs of San Bernardino after a vigor
ous sweating process. Stanyan • stated
that he was returning with Eldridge from
their work on the Arrowhead reservoir
end that the murder was committed
after a quarrel between Eldridge and
Romo, the former firing a shot from; his
revolver with deadly effect. :
The evidence that Stanyan was in San
Bernardino under an assumed name came
In a letter addressed to a friend in tUia
city and signed "Samuel Jackson." It
was rtctived at the San Francisco post
tfiice yesterday and furnished the ne^es :
cary link In the chain of evidence .which
piovesthe man's identity. The story- is
cr.e of a reckless life of dissipation wnich
Etanyan has led 6<nce his flight from San
Francisco last year.
Th© friend to whom the letter was ad
dressed claims to have been a companion
cf Stanyan. or "Jackson." as he was
known then, when the two were touring
Southern California on foot. They were
close partners and worked and rested al
ternately, drinking heavily, all the time.
One night Stanyan 'confessed his Identity
to bis friend, and said he was once a
prosperous business man of San Fran
Then the friend left and he heard noth
ing more of ' Stanyan until; yesterday, >
when the letter reached him". The .en
velope was taken at once to the German
Insurance Company, where Stanyan was
formerly employed, and ' the writing was
compared with the entries which Stanyan
had made in the books there.
When C. H. Ward, the manager of the
company, saw the writing, he unhesitat
ingly declared that It was ; the ! work , of
his former employe. Then, on closer com
parison with the writings made • in . the
books, he said that it resembled Stanyan's
writing in every way, exoCpt that it was
a little too regular.
The story of the life of "Sam" Stanyan,
as he was familiarly called byl many of
his business associates, is a highly In- ;
teresting one. So . successful was 1 he , In
the Insurance. business that he was re
garded us a "man of exceptional ability,
lie was trusted by all.

Miss Marie Knittel, -of San Rafael; Con

that the bride was already married „to

SACR->—r.NTO. Sept. X.— Tragedy,
'more terrible than that through th«
lines of which death stalks, was wrlt
, ten in the Einmons" - trial to-day. It
,came:upon the crowd -"of spectators in
Judge Hart's department of the Su
perior \u25a0 Court with ' the sudden , surprise
of a shock. It marked the entrance of
*ex-Senator; Harry Bunkers, convicted
of ' the ] felony of bribery, ' to bear : wit

District "Attorney Seymour, had,'con

Jury and the court had ordered him to
proceed with 'the' presentation" of his

over" his gaunt f rame."
