"BARNEY--San Francisco -- Mysterious Death -- Probable Suicide -- A man named Daniel F. BARNEY, aged about 36 years, a carpenter, who had at times appeared deranged upon the subject of spiritualism, was found dead in an out house at the middle station near Fort Point. The body was found lying on the ground floor, upon the left side, with a gunny bag of straw under his head. His throat was cut, but the jugular vein was not severed, and the wound was not sufficient to have caused his death. On a further examination, a handkerchief was found tied tightly around his left arm above the elbow, and a deep cut across the arm, severing the bronchial artery, and penetrating to the bone. Strange to say, the sleeve of his under shirt was drawn down over the wound, and the over-shirt was buttoned at the wrist. The following letter, together with a number of accounts, and several verses of poetry showing that the deceased was laboring under Spiritualism, was found in his pocket: 'Mr. BONE, Sir: Please collect my account from Mr. SAYWOOD, and pay my bill to Mrs. CUMMINS, and an account with Mr. TAYLOR the post merchant, on Stockton street. Fear nothing. Respected friend, all is right, Adieu, Barney N.B. -- You see I have no idea of being long lost. D.B.' The man had apparently been dead for 2 or 3 days.

"BATCHELDER--Death Of Capt. Batchelder--Passing Away of a Well-Known Man of Oakland--Oakland Jan 1--D.F. BATCHELDER, who for twelve years was a popular special policeman on the Broadway beat, between Ninth and Fourteenth streets, died very suddenly at his home, 811 Isabella street, this morning, of valvular disease of the heart. He was a native of Boston, aged 76 years. His wife died three years ago. The death of "Captain" BATCHELDER, as he was familiarly known, recalls a suit of no small proportions dismissed in the United States District Court some time ago. It involved the title to 160 acres of land known as BAKERs Beach, near Point Lobos, San Francisco. Captain BATCHELDER married Mrs. Maria BAKER, widow of the late John Henry BAKER, in the early '70's and shortly afterward the property referred to, and left by J.H.BAKER to his widow, was mortgaged by the newly-acquired husband, Captain BATCHELDER, for $36,000. The mortgage was held by the late John BRECKMYSTEL of San Francisco, who, it was afterward claimed, had foreclosed on it very suddenly one day and subsequently bought the property in for $60,000. This occurred in 1879, and in about June of that year BATCHELDER commenced suit for its recovery and the case has ever since hung fire in various courts, until recently, when it was thrown out of the United States District Court on the ground of lack of jurisdiction. Deceased leaves only a stepson, J. H. BAKER, who is also an officer, and who stated to-night that his stepfather's death would by no means terminate the effort to regain possession of BAKERs BEACH. The date of the funeral has not been determined, but the body will probably be interned in the family plot in Odd Fellows Cemetery, San Francisco." Source: clipping dated 1 Jan 1899.

"BATY--OLD PIONEER PASSES--The death of John R. BATY removes another pioneer settler of this valley. The end came at the residence of Mrs. Wm HILL, at Modesto, where he was visiting. Coming to this valley and settling at Fort Bidwell when this part of the State was teeming with hostile Indians, his life was one of excitement, thrilling adventures and danger. He was a good neighbor, thoroughly imbued with old fashioned hospitality, and his latch string was always on the outside of his door, and he will be sadly missed in the community in which he has lived so long. John R. BATY was born in Ohio, September 3, 1839 and died March 5, 1925. He came to California in the 60's by way of the Panama route and located at Fort Bidwell and was married to Miss Laura MASON, daughter of Judge MASON, of Lake County, Ore., Oct. 30, 1870. To this union twelve children were born, and reared on the old home place at Bidwell. They are as follows: Thos BATY, Montana; Ella BATY, decreased; Mrs. I. S. McGOWAN, Los Angeles; Mrs. I. H. SKILLMAN, Fort Bidwell; Mrs. H. BARDUE, San Francisco; Mrs. E. G. PETERSON, Fort Bidwell Virgie SKILLMAN, deceased; Mrs. W. D. HILL, Modesto; Mrs. W. W. HUGHES, Roseburg; Mrs. R. L.
