Cincinnati Weekly Enquirer (Newspaper) - August 08, 1877, Cincinnati, OhioS. Vol. Xxxviii no. 2. Wednesday morning August 8. 1877. I i of whole no. 2097. Enormous fortunes. Tkv Kle Hoit Man in the world a com Purlison of the incomes of foreign billionaires with those of great a Ine on Nerc. 4 san Francisco if the richest men in the world Are not today living in California it is almost certain they will be found Here half a Century hence. We give below the translation of an article from the Gazette a German newspaper published at Frankfort on the main one of the financial centers of Europe. We do not endorse the correctness of the statements but they Are interesting As showing the Way in which foreign financiers Are estimating the resources of California a the late Rothschild of Paris left a Fortune of 1,000,000,000 francs $200,000,000which amount at five per cent per annul would yield a yearly income of 60,000,000 francs $10,000,000. The deceased belonged to a family whose members beside being unusually Rich divided this heritage among themselves so that it is possible that now another Rothschild owns As Large a Fortune As the one mentioned did. The Marquis of Westminster who also died not Long ago was estimated by some to be Worth �800,000 $4,000,000 per year by others however at Only about half of this sum on the ground that his possessions his principal wealth con aisted in real estate were heavily encumbered. Much of his capital had and beside this been spent on worthless improvements. Thus the total wealth of the Marquis his income taken As the proceeds of five per cent per annul of his entire capital would according to the former estimate amount to �16,000,000 $80,000,000according to the latter to �8,000.000 $40, xxx ,000. Considering now that in England the Law of primogeniture exists and this especially in regard to real estate the great bulk of which always remains in one Liand it lies reasonable to suppose that the principal heir of the Marquis most Likely blessed beforehand already with riches will now reach his testator As to the vastness of Fortune if not surpass him. A but enough of the old world of Europe and her Money Kings. Let us turn our eyes now toward the new world american especially toward California and Nevada those blessed countries which forty years ago were no More than Road less wildernesses since then however traversed by railroads have become the Bountiful treasure and fruit vaults of the Anglo Saxon race. About three years ago the yearly income of senator Jones of Nevada from Bis Silver mines in Nevada was estimated at $5,000,000, which would lie equivalent to a capital of $100,000,-000 at 5 per cent per annul. Surely tins is a Fortune that is most rarely gathered especially in the course of one Many a life still it has now been greatly surpassed. J. W. Mackey draws out of his Silver mines in Nevada us yearly income of �2,750,000 $13,750,-000which would he the interest at 5 per cent per annul on a capital of �55,000,000 $275,000,000. In figuring now the income of the four gentlemen named above per month Day hour and minute in round sums we find about the following results mines As the richest men in this state and set Down the four men who Are the principal owners of the Central Pacific Railroad and connecting roads As ranking next in order with the qualification that we do not hold ourselves responsible for these calculations. They have at least the Merit of shrewd guesses with considerable data to fortify the opinion. No doubt other names might be added to the following list of those of our citizens having fortunes of $4,000,000 and upward capital. Income. Flood a of Brien.

In fact we have no Means of determining accurately the fortunes of a considerable number of men who Are very Rich. The number of men who Are millionaires in this state was never so great As now. None of them were Rich Twenty years ago. Quite a number of those who bad Large fortunes five or six years ago do not now figure in the list of millionaires. The ups and Downs of mining interests have made the principal difference. A considerable number also who were not Rich five years ago have Large fortunes to in this state Only Westminster. 180, xxx ,000 4,000,000 800,000 10.000 .4.o Jones. 1100,000,000 6,000.000 400,000 15.000 600 10 Mackey. 1275,000,000 13,750,000 1,000,000 85.000 1,600 25 capital.

J. W. Mackey however whose Fortune increases $25 in every minute and 42 cents in every second is the richest of the Rich under the Sun which Bounds the More marvelous when we learn that thirty years ago to was in Ireland a penniless boy Twenty years ago a speculative Salesman travelling through the United states of America and sixteen years ago a bankrupt devoid of every thing. But be it As it May or. Mackey is hardly forty five years of age owner of three eighths of the great Bonanza the richest Silver mine that Ever was run and thus knows just exactly Why he leads on in the Buttle of the estimates made by this foreign journal arc speculative and curious but some of those relating to the wealthy men of this coast would need careful revision. For instance John p. Jones some years ago while a Large owner in Crown Point and other productive mines might have been Worth some millions at least we suppose his income then was a fair dividend on several millions. But he some time ago ceased to be a very Rich Man and we presume to Day he does not consider himself to have More than moderate Fortune. No doubt the richest mining firm in the world is that of flood amp of Brien Mackey amp fair. Their interest in two Bonanza mines at the present depressed prices can not be less than $23,000,000. They own the Bank of Nevada with a paid up capital of $10,000.000 and a Reserve fund of $2,000,000. They Are reputed to own $20,000,000 in United states Bonds. Their real estate and other property in sight can not be Worth less than $3,000,000. Besides these investments they own a controlling interest in several other mines some of which like the Best and Belcher Are believed to be on the line of Rich deposits and May at some future Day to classed in the list of a Bonanza mines a add these items together and we have a total of $60,000,000, which is an under estimate of their wealth but How much so we can not say. The annual income on this property is not less than $20,000,000. The individual interests can not be defined but we a hould hesitate to endorse the statement of the German financiers in this particular. It would not Surprise us however if satisfactory proof were offered that the entire As sets of these four men would foot up $100,-000,000. Next in order we should estimate the wealth of the four principal owners of the Central Pacific Railroad and the other connecting roads of californian Sanford Huntington Crocker and Hopkins. These men Are the largest owners of Railroad property in the world. Most of this property is unencumbered by the Issue of mortgage Bonds. But we suppose that these four men have a Clear margin of rising $50,000,000. Besides Railroad property they own a great Deal of lend town Sites alternate sections country mate City real estate and so on. It is a Low estimate to say that they Are Worth $12,500,000 apiece. Prospectively they Are Worth vastly More. It May indeed turn out with their nearly three thousand Miles of Railroad and their Large amount of real estate that six or seven years hence they May be. If not now a he richest men in California or in the United states. For the present however we adhere to our estimates and set Down the men who Are the principal owners of and the Day. Means financial a a ruins that men in the hazards of business have lost wit i a Strong probability that they will More than make their losses Good in the future. If it is a land of a ups and Downs a there never was a country where men got up so soon As in this. There is Spring untiring Energy men who have Faith in themselves in the country and in the Good Providence which is on tie Side of All who honestly try to help themselves. We have purposely omitted from this article the Long list of men Worth from $1,000,-000 to $3,000,000. There is not another country under the Sun where so Many have made Large fortunes in so Short a time without capital for a Start. There is not another a Oung City in the world which contains so arge a population of wealthy men. These facts illustrate in a striking Way the wonderful resources of this coast. The men whose fortunes have been enumerated Are Only Middle aged. It is More than probable that some of these or their heirs will be the richest men in the world.

From the Danbury news John Henry was with Julia the other evening when she observed a John dear what is All this talk about contracting and expanding the currency and which do you believe in a a Well my Sweet a said John pulling up his Collar a that depends upon circumstances. In some cases i should advocate contraction of the currency and in others an expansion of it. It is according to the circumstances that is the condition of a but what is the difference Between the two and How do circumstances effect them that a what i want to know. a ooh that a easily explained a said John in a tone of great cheerfulness. A for instance when we Are alone we sit on one chair done to we a a Well that a contraction.

Correspondence san Francisco chronicle Shanghai june 6.�?in the District of Tien men it has been customary to use Small Cash As local currency the chinese Cash varying in size from that of an old fashioned Copper cent to those now used. A Large shop in one of the villages took Small Cash in payment of cloth but demanded the Large Cash for Salt and other articles. One Day a purchaser objected to pay the larger coins in satisfaction of purchases contending that Small Cash was local currency and that the shop had no right to make an exception to the general Rule. The Wordy War waxed warm and at last the Shopman dragged off the purchaser to a Petty official who was his personal Friend who decided at once in his favor and ordered the defendant to pay Large Cash which he did and then went to his neighbors to complain How they were wronged let a the official and the shop. The excitement Rose to a regular riot during which the offending establishment was wrecked and on the arrival of the chief magistrate he was mobbed the people requiring him to Promise there should be but one kind of currency in the future. On pretence of going to this office to Issue the reclamation he escaped to the provincial capital and represented the Village in a state of revolt. On this the governor general or dered a High military officer to take an escort re investigate the matter. The presumed insurgents hearing of the approach of the troops Hung a Banner far up the Road by which they would come on which was inscribed a though urged thereto by the officials still we will not the soldiers kept on and arrived at the Village b dark to find it occupied by women and chi Dren Only All the men having ran away. Then begun a scene of pillage and horror impossible to detail. Little children were torn from their mothers arms to be outraged the women suffering like and worse indignities. With the exception of one Hundred and Twenty who committed suicide to avoid the disgrace. They took away every article of any value having even dug up the floors to seek treasure.

A remarkable cat has been discovered in st. Lawrence county. A correspondent says a you May state if you choose that we have a White Thomas cat in this neighbourhood belonging to no one in particular that has forsaken the manner of cats and become a Fisherman. This cat does not hesitate to plunge into the River and catch a fish and can be seen every morning and at other Timea through the Day travelling along the River Bank jumping from atone to Stone in tie rapids looking for fish and when he gets his Eye on one in he plunges and Seldom fails to bring out his it if. A xxv is in Luck. He is lecturing in England and behold the a a zoom at Bordeaux goes into bankruptcy and offers for Sale an elephant a dromedary a Camel three pan of Shantung reported tie trial and execution of Chen Szije a native of the Fang Yih District for the crime of Patra cide. From tie evidence adduced at tie trial which has been pending for some time it appears that on the Goth of april 1876, the culprit who up to that time had lived with his father on a footing of proper filial obedience had sold a Pear tree for 3,000 Cash and having this amount of ready Money was desired by his father to pay on his account the sum of 500 Cash which the elder Man owed at the Village Bakers. Chen Szije pro a posed to wait awhile longer upon which his Ather abused him As a disobedient son seized d chopper and rushed at him with it. Threatening to kill him. Chen Szije defended himself As Best he could but his father continued to grapple with him until at length having possessed himself of the weapon Chen Szije dealt a blow at his father unthinkingly which Laid him prostrate and insensible with an incised wound on the forehead. In great terror at the consequences of his act Chen Szije gave an alarm declaring that his father had been wounded by robbers and some of his neighbors and relatives hurried with the Tippo to make inquiries. It so happened that Chen Szije was alone in the House at the time As his wife was on a visit to her Mother and he was Able to conceal the real state of the Case. After lingering in a state of unconsciousness for three Days his father died and he proceeded of his own motion to have the remains interred employing a couple of mendicant whose names Are unknown to convey the coffin to a grave dug on his own land. Two months later two of his uncles Brothers of the deceased returned from a journey and they then questioned Chen Szije with regard to the alleged murder of his father by robbers and to his having failed to make report to the authorities and solicit an inquest. Thrown into confusion by this interrogation he was unable to conceal the truth any longer and having confessed the act he had committed he was denounced to the District magistrate and committed to custody. A question arose and was referred to the higher authorities regarding the necessity for an inquest on the remains but As it was considered that decomposition must have set in and As the relatives who had come to the Rescue deposed to the nature of the wound and the treatment they had resorted to in plastering it with flour while the other relatives of the deceased begged that the remains of their Kinsman who had met so sad a Fate might not be further disturbed the late governor Ting Pao Cheng sanctioned the conclusion of the trial without an inquest. The prisoner having confessed his crime was accordingly sentenced under the statute relating to parricide to suffer death by Ling Clie slicing and As the scene of the crime although within the distance of 300 i referred to in the statute is at the sane time separated from the provincial capital by the yellow River the Law permits under these circumstances that execution take place at the provincial capital itself. The sentence has accordingly been carried into effect and the head of the parricide has been forwarded to the scene of his crime to serve As a could any thing be More unjust or terrible than the Fate of this Man who because he defended himself from the Blind fury of another albeit his own father and in carrying out his natural instinct of self preservation unwittingly and unwillingly deprived his father of life was made to suffer an extremity of agony no pen of mine could depict even if 1 cared to further than to state Ling Clie Means slicing the living quivering flesh by inches from the Boneso me being taken to wound no vital part until the Yery last so the victim May Drain his cup of anguish to tie Dregs the same paper has an abstract of another decree. Sentencing a poor wretch to a like Fate for murdering his aunt and a Cousin in revenge for harsh language and if we take the lists of punishments for like offences approved by the throne we Are astonished to see How frequently death by torture is the Fate of those who injure their relatives.

The natural water Way stretches beyond Houghton wit i its Copper mines on the hillsides and almost cuts a Channel through to tie Ortii Shore of the Laker the neck of land being Only two and a half Miles wide. As Early As 1864 a corporation was formed for the construction of a ship canal across this narrow isthmus. Work was begun during the next year but Progress was Verv slow. A Cut of 300 feet wide and 15 feet deep was to be made across a swamp where a Forest of heavy growt i had once been upturned by a Reat storm and tie surf on the Shore Ren ered necessary the construction of a Strong breakwater. Work went on tie capital Stock was increased again and again immense land Grants were made by tie state legislature and by Congress and tie property was mortgaged and remortgage and in 1872, seven years after tie construction of the work was begun the canal was still unfinished and tie mortgages aggregated $3,300,000 at 10 per cent interest. Foreclosures litigation and bankruptcy proceedings followed and a Sale was finally ordered at Houghton the highest bid being $850,000. As the liens amounted to Over $3,861,000, the bondholders have sunk about $3,000,000 in this ditch. A new company with a capital of $4, xxx ,000, is now endeavouring to Complete the work.

Labouchere did no to Nee at Del Mon Leos with Forster and a railway president. From London truth a few years ago i was in America. A Friend of mine a thoroughly practical Man for he was then president of one of tie largest railroads since involved in no end of troubles used to Tell me of wonders he had seen performed by a medium of the name of Forster. A let me by All Means see them a i said and it was arranged that i should but for one reason or another i never came in Contact with Forster until the night previous to my leaving the country. I had asked the railway president and two or three other friends to Dine with me at Delmonico a a famous new York restaurant. We had a private room and when dinner was nearly finished i happened to say to the president that after All i should leave tie country without meeting Forster. A shall i Send for him a he said. A by All Means a i replied and he wrote a note to invite him to come to the restaurant and smoke a Cigar with us. Soon Forster appeared. He was a pleasant gentlemanly Man. Dessert was on the table and he sat Down drank his wine smoked his Cigar and joined in the general conversation. After a Little while this conversation gravitated into a discussion on spiritualism. Forster asked me what i thought of him. I said a Lyon Are my guest so i do not wish to offend you but if you really want to know i regard you As a Clever a i have a he answered a a certain Power. We Cheritis derived from spirits acting through me i do not know but i am certain i have this As he said this the chair upon which he was sitting began to crack portentous by As though it were going to fall into pieces. A give me the chair a i said and i tried to make it crack in the same manner but it was a solid piece of furniture and i utterly failed. Then there were noises like explosions in All parts of the room. A is that conjuring a he said. A probably a i replied. A can Vou do it a he asked. A no i can not a i answered. At this moment there were loud banging on the ceiling. I rang the Bell and asked the waiter in French who was in the room above he went to Sec and came Back with the information that the room was vacant. A a Confederate a i observed to Forster but he denied it. On this we sat Down round the table. Forster produced a card with an alphabet in Large letters on it and told us to ask questions and then to touch the letters pausing when we heard a rap. One of my friends was a Scotchman. He asked where an Uncle had died naming him. A scotch unpronounceable word was rapped out. A that was the name of his country House and he did die there a said the Nephew. I then asked where an aunt of mine had died a in the Isle of Wight a was rapped out. A wonderful a he observed which indeed it wus for the lady happened to have died in London. Suddenly. Forster got up from the chair and wriggled himself behind me on which i another Friend was sitting Laid hold of his Arm and gave him a message from his sister who had died some years previously. There seemed to me nothing of the slightest importance in the message. A go into the next room a said Forster to the brother a and she will speak to he did and on his return said that she had spoken to him. He looked Pale and Dis composed. A Well what did she say a i asked but he would not Tell me. Then we wrote on pieces of paper a 1 rolled them up in balls y Means of tin Thabet Forster read them without open ii them. A Are you convinced a he Aski i me. A not in the least a i answered. I then went into a Corner of the room turned my Back on Forster and having written a word on a piece of paper folded it up and rang tie Bell. Wien the waiter came i sent him for an envelope and having put the paper in the envelope which i closed and put it before a Candle to see that the Light could not Shine through it handed it to Forster and asked him to read the word. He pressed the envelope to his forehead and then correctly read it. A does this convince you a he said. A it convinces me a i replied a that you have some curious magnetic Power or that you Are amp singularly Clever i answered a but it Loes not certainly convince me of spiritualism. Show me a spirit or a ghost or a head or a a to see these a he answered a you must sit with me for hours in the dark evening after evening and then perhaps one of these manifestations May appear to a that is to say a i replied a if i get thrown into a morbid dreamy state you will persuade me that i see something that has no real existence. Thank you a and i handed him a Cigar which he lit and relapsed from a medium into a pleasant companion. A witness in a will Case recently tried in London testified that for years he had kept the dead body of his child in a room in his House. This reminds Mayfair of the Story of a gentleman who lived in the neighbourhood of Park Lane beeping the body of his wife on the roof of his nouse. By her marriage settlement a Large legacy was due to her husband As Long As she was above ground. When she died the disconsolate husband had her embalmed put in a coffin and placed in a mausoleum erected on the roof of his House. J. I a a.

Springfield Republican july 31st-1 the most Lawless proceeding in the recent criminal annals of Western Massachusetts w As the murder of one and possibly two respectable Farmers at North Savoy on sunday near the door of the Advent Chapel by a local rough Herbert l. Blanchard who already boasted of having two wives because one of the victims objected to the Fellows attentions to his Young daughter. The wounded men Albert and Francis Starks were Brothers and tie former is reported dead while there is probably Little Chance for the recovery of the latter. Bla Fichard Lias been arrested and lodged in Greenfield jail. Blanchard is about Twenty five years old hails last from West Hawley and was a farm labourer. He is known As a most unsavoury character has served several sentences in jail for larceny and is said to have also lived in Texas and Mexico once running a Faro Bank. He has always gone around with a pistol and knife but despite All this is noted for his Success with a the Albert and Francis Starks were about fifty and forty years old respectively and Clara Starks to whom Blanchard was attentive is the daughter of the younger brother herself too Young to keep company with any Man so that it was natural on this ground alone that her father should refuse to let Blanchard come to tie House to see her. Blan Chahl had boasted of having two wives but told the neighbors he would soon have Clara under his control and evidently meant no Good to her. Tie silly girl was persuaded to remain Friendly to him and to meet him outside of her Home without the knowledge of her parents and one evening about a fortnight ago while they were walking together half a mile from Home a shot was suddenly heard not far away and a Bullet flew past their Heads. Blanchard picked up a Stone and started in the direction of the shot when a Man jumped from a Thicket of Bushes fired again without effect and then fled. Blanchard had so Many enemies in town that there is no telling who his assailant was but he thought if they were to proceed to such extremes to break up his Intercourse with the girl the risk would be too great for the fun so he made no More attempts to see her after that. Such were the preliminary relations of the parties hut there is More or less discrepancy in the details of sundays affray As All the witnesses were excited he the imminent Prospect of being themselves involved. The affair happened at an adventist Chapel at what is known As Spruce Corners in tie Northern part of the town the Community being largely composed of adventists and spiritualists. The parties All attended service at this place sunday morning and some one showed Clara the South Adams newspaper of the Day before containing an account of the shooting when she and Blanchard were walking she was crying Over this when coming out of Church and by one account her father hearing about it from her lips after he had asked her what the trouble was became greatly enraged and right up to Blanchard who was not fur off and began denouncing him. Blanchard told him to be careful or lie would get Hurt but Starks insisted on having it out then and there and in the fight that followed it is claimed for both parties that tie other struck the first blow. As both had friends among the people standing about the Chapel in full sight and hearing it seemed at first As if the quarrel would become general. Albert Starks rushed in to Rescue his brother the father of Clara and others tried to help Blanchard. When the latter was overpowered the others were finally pulled off from him and then As soon As his arms were freed stung with rage at his defeat he Drew his revolver and shot Albert Starks who was being held by two men and immediately turned and discharged another barrel at Francis with whom tie fight had begun. He then fired several shots into the crowd but without effect z. A. Kemp and mrs. Joseph Hawkins being among those aimed at. Both men were hit in the body and Albert was reported dead last evening the Ball entering pack of the shoulder Blade and passing Down toward the heart. Francis is thought to be mortally wounded the Ball entering his body above the hip and passing upward. Blanchard was at length surrounded and his revolver with one full chamber taken from him. The Only excuse offered by the people for not taking him into custody is that it would have occasioned a free fight for his friends even after the shooting it is said would have fought for him. Another Story is that some of Blanc hard a rough associates began the trouble to give him a Chance to revenge himself and that As the Starks Brothers came out of the building they were set upon by George Bourne and Francis Barden the latter seizing Albert Starks and both going Down in the struggle when Barden obtained the advantage and called to Blanchard to a give it to him a and the latter tired at Albert and then at the others. Blanchard does not seem to have been satisfied with wounding two men and Imp riling others but As soon As he was at Liberty he started for a neighbouring House and soon appeared coming toward the crowd with a double barrelled shot gun.
