Ford of this city Is among the people whocome under ithèlsat named class, and one of his experiences along the Une of having relatives fairly hurled at his head, came along a year ago, when one fine day, in October -the following letter -was- received by Mr. Ford from Watsonville:  WATSONVItiLE, Oct. 25, '04.  Mr. Geo. Ford:. Dear Sir-This  letter may surprise you, because it is from a stranger. But I am a niece of yours now. I am Edwin Carleton's wife; only been* married, nine months. But why I write this letter is for information from you, Mr. Ford. Edwin wenit away seven weeks ago, without even telling me where he was going, so l want to know if he has been at your house. I am nearly worried to death over it. He often spoke of you, and that he was going to see you some time. If he has been thiere, or is there now, tell him to write immediately; also you answer as soon as possible, if you please.  Yours Truly, MRS. EDWIN CARLETON, 29 Menker, St., Watsonville.  New, while Mr. Ford, perhaps, has no objection to having a whole barn-ful of nieces as they may happen along in the ordinary manner, he rather shied at the prospect of having a young woman from Watsonville butting into the Ford family in this unceremonious way, and straightway he took his typewriter in hand and indited a letter of explanation, in which he set forth with minute particularity the fact that no person by the name of Edwin Carleton has the right i to claim kinship with George W. Ford, and added some little fatherly advice to the effect that the young Watsonville woman would better investigate her husband's record before reaching out for his relatives. This letter was duly received by the woman at Watsonville, is a couple of wee!;s after it was forwarded, the following came in answer from her:  WATSONVILLE, Nov. 5, '04.  Mr. George W. Ford: Dear Sir— Yours reoeived, and you say you haven't any relative by the name of Carleton. It is very strange, when my husband, Edwin Carleton, said he had an uncle in Santa Ana by the name of Geo. Ford, and you said you went to the Postmaster and he said that there was nobody by the name of George Ford. It so states on the envelop, "Geo. Ford, Box 23, Santa Ana." It is a very funny proposition, I must say. (Mr. Ford asked at the postoffioe if there was another Geo. Ford in the city, and addressed her in one of his own printed envelopes.)  My husband enlisted in the Spanish-American war from your place and he said you had his discharge paper. If you have, please send it to me by mail; also there is an estate to be settled up of $1400. How about that? My husband stated that you were a brother of his mother, and before he was of age you werp his guardian. This is a very serious, affair, Mr. Ford, although I do not want to have any hard .feelings between you and I, but I simply want to know the truth. My husband wouldn't tell me a lie about you being this uncle and about this estate, so I would be more than thankful to you if you would tell me the truth. My husband has disappeared very mysteriously, and I wrote to you asking you if he had been there. I would like a little more information than you gave me in your letter. Please do not disappoint me.  Yours Truly, MRS. ED. CARLETON.  That settled it with Mr. Ford, for when it began to look like the Watsonville woman had designs on his bank account as well on his name, he '.cut her out as a correspondent, and .ha» not since heard- from her. Investigation, however, shows that thé young woman, from Watsonville may have ¿ome ground : for writing as she did ■to Mr. Ford, as it-la possible that she. married a certaduftEdiwIn Carleton who lived here at one .time, and who may have told her that George W. Ford of this city was his uncle. Carleton en listed in 1899 aad went.to the Philip-Pines In Company F, commanded ; by. Captain Prescott.„ He returned here in 1901, having )jeen discharged' in May of thai, year,, .¿¿terwarda Carleton worked at various jobs in this city, actio« as horae wrangler In several of the local livery stables an£ later-left under a ^loyd for being mix-' ^ up in an allegcjd v àhàdy transaction ?» of tf lVee-  Carletanr again existed;  là  I«—,  : W.  the week at  J M  -^spending ÎOt Bprtrigs.

Harding has been training ten or twelve children for some time In a little play, which was given at-her home at 605 West Second street yesterday alter noon and proved such a pleasing success that it will be repeated this evening at 8 o'clock. The proceeds will go to the Jacob Riis fund, which is used to send the poor children of New York to the country. It takes a very little sum to send a child for two weeks and these dozen little ones', sympathizing with those who are suffering so tenribly In the big city and grateful for their own blessings have been using a part of theii 1  vacation in this.way. ,Thte evening the admission will be'ten cents and refreshments ten cents, and it is hoped that there* will be a good attendance "inasmuch aa ye do it unto! the least of these, my little ones, ye do it unto me."  8eine Ordinance Passed.  The Board of Supervisors ,to-day passed an ordinance making it a misdemeanor to carry on seine fishing within 1000 feet of any -pier or wharf in the county. , The offense ls punlsh-able .with a flue of $500, or imprison-inent: for. six months or tooth fine and Imprisonment. The ordinance specifically states that this prohibition of seine fistoiag shall not affect the catch-W pfjo^'fish ^ fte. wharves or  SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2.—The conference between the officials of the Clark road and the . Southern Pacific was brought to a close late yesterday afternoon, after another day's wrangling. At the close of the meeting, It was announced 1  .that a satisfactory arrangement had been agreed' upon, under which the two roads will exchange business in the southern part of the State. The result is a decided victory for the Clark' forces, for It has been generally understood and openly hinted' by the Hairrlman representatives that the Salt Lake road would be granted no concessions in the way of traffic, or switching arrangements.  SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2.—The exact terms of the deal agreed upon by the Clark road and Espee are not  made public,' nor will the attending officials say anything of the influences', that were brought to bear to bring? about the final decision of the Hard'! man forces. It is 1  aaid, however, that the hint vr&» openly made in the meeting that the Clark- road, unless given a satisfactory' traffic arrangement in the southern part of the State, would proceed to a war of rates and compete for Southern Pacific traffic by absorbing the Southern Pacific's locals.  It was also hinted to the Harrlman forces, so the story goes, that the Clark road' was. quite able to parallel all of the Southern Pacific's local lines and take chances in Southern California, and that such roadB Would be built, if necessary, to secure to the Clark road what it considers a fair share of Southern California traffic.  SANTA FE EXCURSIONS EAST.  The Santa Fe will sell excursion tickets August 15 and 16 for Foresters' Meeting at Buffalo, August 22, at $88.50 for round trip—good 90 days.

KEELER, Agent.  Who Has the Halter?  Day before yesterday a halter belonging to the Standard Oil Company was lost on Main street and the finder brought it to the Blade office to be advertised. The halter had been some time in use and didn't smell as sweet as a rose, and was hung outside the Blade office yesterday afternoon on a bicycle raok. Last night some one stole it, and to-day when Mr. Bissett, driver of the Standard Company's wagon called to get his property, it was not forthcoming. Now, the halter is worth about four bits, but the city editor of this staid family journal will give two dollars reward for information that will lead to the conviction of the person iwho stole it, as it is well worth the price to discover a man mean enough to steal a fifty cent halter from poor old John Rockefeller.
