Samuel Meyer makes no explanation of his peculiar conduct in trying to disgrace the name of his dead wife. He is keeping out of the way of the reporters. His efforts to keep secret the fact of his marriage to Grace Benjamin that he might get a share of his mother's wealth have been futile, thanks to his wife's loyal friend Mollie Holland and the documentary evidence in tiic Aiameda Hall of Records. Those who know him speak of his want of application and inability to make of himself a useful member of society. He has been the black sheep of a respected family.

Oakland is overrun with thieves and burglars, and the police seen utterly un able to check the epidemic of crime. The thieves do not seem to be after money alone, for they carry off everything in sight that is portable, and there is no doubt that in one instance at least a horse and wagon were used to carry off the plun der, as nearly a carload of stuff was re moved. Neither do the gentlemen of the jimmy and dark lantern pick upon any particular quarter, for they have left their footprints in East and West Oakland and among the business houses of Oakland proper. In only one instance has there been any thing near a capture, and that was on Monday morning last, vrhen Special Officer Avers took a shot at a fleeing thief, who had a sack of silver plate on his back, stolen from the residence of George Faulk ner, ...

Police Prevent an Angry Mob From Doing Violence to the Doomed Man. MiNNK\mLiP, Match B.— "ln two hours I will be a free man." Thus said Harry Hayward to-day, and in less than three hours a jury of his peers gave the lie to his words, and placed its seal Upon the word "guilty." With the same immovable stolidity with which he has watched the trial of his case, the prisoner received the verdict of the jury. There was not a shadow of a change in color, not the relaxation of a single muscle, no visible collapse or sign of any emotion ; ever the same cynical and sneer ing indifference. According to the statutes of the State of Minnesota, only one fate can await Harry Hayward — to be hanged by the neck until he is dead. Neither the jury nor the Judge could alter the sentence, no matter how strongly in clined they mig...
