"CHALMERS--MAN DROWNS WHILE REPAIRING A DAM. Damage to a Mining Company's Property Will Require a Year to Repair Besides Entailing Much Financial Loss. [Special Dispatch to "The Examiner."] MERCED, December 14. -- News has reached here that a portion of the dam on the Merced river near Benton Mills, Mariposa county, has washed out resulting one death and great financial loss. The dam was built by the Mariposa Commercial and Mining Company for the purpose of applying power for their numerous mines in that locality. It was completed a year ago at a cost of $33,000. The break in the dam consists of a hole three feet long and three or four feet high and is located at the bottom of the foundation. An immense body of water is pouring through the hole and as all efforts to stop the leak have failed, the superintendent has given up hope and it is expected the entire dam will be washed out. A years' time will be required to reconstruct it. Among the men employed to repair the leak was John CHALMERS, who has been in the employ of the company for sometime. In stepping or jumping from one timber to another he fell into the swift current of the river and was drowned." Source: San Francisco Examiner, 15 December 1902, p. 9.

"CHAPMAN--DEATH of W.B. CHAPMAN -- W.B. CHAPMAN, the Comedian, so well known as a popular actor in this city, where he was ever a great favorite, died at his residence in San Francisco on the 8th inst. Mr. CHAPMAN was the first who opened the Stockton Theatre, which he made so popular with our citizens by his own irresistible powers, seconded as they were by his sisters, Miss Caroline CHAPMAN and Mrs. W.B. HAMILTON. He was aged 70 years. The S.F. 'Alta,' speaking of his death, says: "For 29 years, Mr. CHAPMAN has held a prominent and distinguished position upon the American stage. He began his career as a boy, at Covent Garden Theatre, where his father had been an actor during 30 years, and where his brother Sam, 2 years his junior, played Prince Arthur in "King John," with Mrs. SIDDONS. From thence he went to the English Opera House, and became noted for singing many of the songs of the elder MATTHEWS. In 1828, he received offers to visit the United States, and accepted an engagement with Mr. GOVERNEUR, making his 1st appearance at the Bowery Theatre, New York. Two years after, he became joint manager with his brother Sam, of the Walnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia. As a low comedian he was always ranked among the 1st in the country, and Dr. PANGLOSS, Billy LACKADAY, Toney LUMPKIN and a very wide range of characters, including eccentric comedy, and, later in life, leading old men, Mr. CHAPMAN had no superior, while in many personations he stood unrivalled. He possessed an infinite fund of humor -- its quality the most unctuous and irresistible. For a few months past, Mr. CHAPMAN evinced symptoms of declining health, but his friends and family did not apprehend the swift approach of the final summons, until a few hours before his death. His close was calm and peaceful. The last words to his devoted brother, Mr. HAMILTON, were: "It's over now -- they story's told." And placidly he sank to sleep. Mr. CHAPMAN leaves a wife -- for 27 years the constant and beloved companion of his joys and sorrows -- and 2 boys, both of whom already evince bright tokens of that histrionic genius with which so many of the family have been gifted."
