MAKE APOLOGY TO JEWELER THEY ROBBED
Greek Hold-Up Men Tell Victim They Are Sorry, And Ask Him Not To Prosecute
And Add To Their Grief
OROVILLE (Butte Co.), August 28 - Ben SALVATORI and L. MILLIGI, the two
Greeks who robbed A.M. ANDERSON, the jewelry peddler, last Friday, were up
before Justice WARD yesterday and were bound over to answer before the
Superior Court on a charge of robbery.
They both confessed to the theft and gave full details of the crime.
The had seen ANDERSON make a display of his money, they said, and plotted
the hold-up. They told where they had thrown their guns away, and all other
After the examination Justice WARD inquired of them through the
interpreter if they had any questions to ask ANDERSON. They held a whispered
consultation, and finally stated that they wished to apologize to him for
They begged ANDERSON to let them go, as they had apologized. But the
officials did not see it in that light.
Chico People Wed Away From home
CHICO (Butte Co.), August 28 - The marriage of several well-known Chico
people in other cities has been announced here, and in most cases the news
has come as a surprise to their most intimate friends.
Last Sunday Frank RIFFE and Mrs. Annie SCHNEIDER departed for Sacramento,
where they were married later in the day. Mrs. SCHNEIDER is the well-known
proprietor of the Dooley restaurant of this city. The married couple will
spend their honeymoon in San Francisco and Santa Cruz.
The marriage of W.H. WADE, a former well-known young man of Chico, to Miss
Gussie May HOOK, of San Jose, in that city last Tuesday, has just become
known here. The young couple will make their future home in Chico.
Yesterday a marriage license was issued in Oroville to Walter Lee LAWSON,
aged 21, and Sarah J. LETTERMAN, aged 17, both of Chico. The consent of the
mother was given. Later it was learned that that parent is the mother of
twenty-one children, and is contemplating marrying again soon. She resides
on Nord Avenue north of Chico.
Jeffress Property Brings Good Price
RED BLUFF (Tehama Co.), August 28 - The JEFFRESS property on the northeast
corner of Walnut and Jefferson Streets was sold yesterday for $4020, the
previous bid of $3750 being raised by Mrs. Mary A. FORTIER. Judge ELLISON in
the Superior Court confirmed the sale at this figure inasmuch as the
property was sold by Public Administrator E.F. LENNON for an estate.
This sale marks a new high-water mark in values of Red Bluff real estate,
and while some old residents declare that other values will not keep pace
with this figure, still there are many conservative investors who hold that
desirable property here is cheap at the present prices.
It will be remembered by Bee readers that this same corner was settled
upon as the site of the proposed Carnegie Library, but this movement was
defeated by certiorari proceedings, and then the gift of a $35,000 building
from Mrs. Elizabeth KRAFT ended the proceedings. This last-named building
has not been commenced on account of legal difficulties in securing the site
on the opposite corner.
Northern Electric Buys More Property
MARYSVILLE (Yuba Co.), August 28 - The right-of-way agent for the Northern
Electric Company has purchased of William GERN the latter's lot at the
southwest corner of Fifth and I streets used recently for holding open-air
dances during the Summer months each year.
It is understood negotiations are under way whereby the same company is to
become the owner of the A. WEISS row of cottages in Fifth Street, between G
and H Streets.
These deals and others under way seem convincing proof of the railroad
people's determination to widen Fifth Street to 100 feet instead of eighty
where their main line of double track for both freight and passenger service
will be laid.
93-Year-Old Man Enjoys the Circus
REDDING (Shasta Co.), August 28 - The oldest person who attended the circus
yesterday in Redding was Frederick ROCHON, aged 93 last March. His home is
in the County Hospital. Yesterday his heart was as young as that of any
6-year-old boy, and he walked with light step two miles to see the big show.
ROCHON is famous locally as the discoverer in 1870 of a nugget worth $3725,
which he picked up on Spring Creek, near the site of the town of Keswick.
Exonerated Napa Man Before Dying
RENO (Nev.), August 28 - There will probably be no prosecution resulting
from the death of Charles DELANEY, a gambler, who was fatally beaten by
Julian SECORD, formerly of Napa, Cal., in a street fight on July 15th.
DELANEY died last night. SECORD has not been arrested.
DELANEY exonerated SECORD before death and mrs. DELANEY asks that there be
no prosecution, saying that her husband was to blame. DELANEY was a bad man
and had a record of killing a man in Colorado.
Bride's First Meal Was Cause of Fire
OLD DIGGINGS (Shasta Co.), August 28 - The two-story dwelling occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Kirby P. STOWE and owned by the Bank of Tehama County was
burned Saturday afternoon. The fire originated in a defective flue. The loss
on building is $500; contents, $250; no insurance.
Mr. and Mrs. STOWE were married only a week ago, and the wife was cooking
the first meal in the new home when the fire started from the defective
PLACERVILLE (El Dorado Co.), August 28 - The body of a Chinaman known as
"Crazy Sam" was found on a trail leading to the Landecker Mine. The Chinaman
had been dead for a couple of weeks and the corpse was dried and shriveled,
there being nothing much left but skin and bone. No inquest was held, as the
old man had unquestionably died from natural causes.
Early Settler Dead
PLACERVILLE (El Dorado Co.), August 28 - Mrs. James KEANE, of Lotus, died at
her home on Sunday evening about 8 o'clock. Mrs. KEANE was a native of
Ireland and an early settler in the county. She was 60 years of age. Two
sons and four daughters survive her.
DEAD MAN FOUND BY LITTLE BOY
No Papers In Pockets To Establish Identity and Body Is Badly Decomposed
After Week's Exposure
ONO (Shasta Co.), August 28 - The badly decomposed body of a middle-aged man
was discovered yesterday morning on Jerusalem Creek, twelve miles west of
this place by Roy McFARLIN, little so nof (sic) A.J. McFARLIN. The lad was
so badly frightened by his grewsome find that he did not stop to take a
second look, but scampered off over the hills two miles to tell his father
about what he had seen.
Word reached here at noon and a telephone message was sent to Coroner
BASSETT at Redding. He arrived here last night and left early this morning
to hold an inquest.
Nothing is known here except that the body of the dead has not been
identified by those of the McFARLIN neighborhood who visited the spot
yesterday. No papers of any kind were found in the pockets. No one could
recognize the features. The man had probably been dead for a week, but who
he was or where he came from is a matter of conjecture. Possibly the Coroner
may be able to get more definite information.
Sent to Stockton
MARYSVILLE (Yuba Co.), August 28 - Judge McDANIEL and a Commission in Lunacy
pronounced Henry RACKELBUSCH, an aged farmer of Prairie district, of unsound
mind last evening. He was taken to the State Hospital at Stockton to-day.
