EDWARD HEGEMAN, who has been the Marshal at Kern city for about 2 years, has been missing since last Friday week, and it is believed that he has left for good. A hasty examination of his books shows an apparent shortage of about $700. As Town Marshal HEGEMAN collected the town taxes and it is in connection with these that the seeming deficit occurs. His supposed flight has caused considerable excitement in his town, as he was trusted by everyone. HEGEMAN left Kern city on the night of March 27th and has not been heard of since. It has now developed that he borrowed $10 from each of 4 or 5 of his friends, on the plea that he wanted to go to San Francisco and see the Southern Pacific officials about having his name removed from the railroad blacklist. His disappearance caused no particular notice until about a week ago, when inquiries were made for him. It was learned of his borrowing money, and his books were privately examined, resulting in the discovery of an apparent shorta
$1,040. Another examination was made and the amount reduced to about $700.

GREGORIO had purchased a ring from Mr. HUBBELL during the day and when he left the store was seen to drop another one on the sidewalk, pick it up and put it in his pocket. A ring was missing from the case and the man was suspected of stealing it. He was arrested and on being searched produced the ring.

On taking a 2nd thought in the matter Mr. HUBBELL decided not to prosecute the case and the man was released on paying the costs incurred by his arrest. GREGORIO is a prominent member of our Portuguese population. He has always borne a good reputation and is quite well off. He has a band of about 10,000 sheep over near Huron and has other property in this county.
