"GODDARD--HUSBAND'S DISGRACE BROKE WIFE'S HEART. Mrs. B. G. GODDARD Succumbs to Grief and Weakness, Leaving Three Young Children Worse Than Orphans.

OAKLAND, December 14. -- After pleading in vain from her deathbed with her prisoner husband to cease drinking, Mrs. B. G. GODDARD gave up the struggle to-day. With her three little babes, her sister and her brother-in-law gathered about the bed, the woman died of a broken heart. But a few hours before the wife's death the husband was brought from his cell in the jail to his wife's home at 1963 Webster street. GODDARD was overcome and on bended knees swore in the presence of his dying wife never begin to touch liquor, but in thirty minutes he was pleading with his keeper as they passed a saloon to allow him a last drink. A highly respected citizen, GODDARD sometime ago forged the name of W. M. WATSON, his employer, to a check for $45. He was held to answer before the Superior Court upon a charge of forgery by Police Judge Mortimer SMITH. The disgrace, with all that had gone before, was too much for the wife. Mrs. GODDARD was thirty-five years of age and was born in San Francisco. She was well educated and used to comfortable circumstances. Her parents are both dead. The only surviving member of her own family is her sister, Mrs. RINLEY. To-night Mrs. RINLEY said: "The death of my sister is extremely pathetic, and I don't know what we will do with the little ones. My sister grieved over her husband's trouble and I fear it caused her death. The tots do not know that their mother is dead yet, and I cannot bear to tell them. There is little money in the house; we have little, and much has been spent on Mr. GODDARD's defense. I think this will break his heart." When informed of his wife's death by the prison keeper at the County Jail to-night GODDARD broke down and cried like a child." Source: San Francisco Examiner, 15 December 1902, p. 9.

He was at once carried into another apartment, where he expired in a few minutes in spite of all that medical aid could do. A messenger was dispatched for Mrs. GODOY, who arrived just in time to find her husband dead.

It was charged by the wife and sister-in-law of GORDON, who keeps an extensive millinery establishment on the corner of Minna and Second streets, that SCHELL came to their place on Monday afternoon, and while they were in the working room back of the salesroom, leaned over the counter and took $11 from the drawer. They (as they assert) pursued him, and called for a policeman, but SCHELL made his escape at the time. The same evening GORDON and his wife met SCHELL in the street and charged him with the theft, which he denied. As this part of the subject has not been investigated SCHELL's guilt of the larceny may be doubled. He informed some friends of the accusation which had been made against him, and it is probable that they advised him to take the course which he afterwards did. Yesterday morning, about 11 o'clock, he went to GORDON's barber shop, (it appears that he had previously lurked around his house for an hour or two.) and said to him; "George that affair last night, was not correct." Some further words passed between them, when SCHELL struck GORDON over the head with his cane, breaking the cane. They then clinched, when Ralph DORR, who with E.A. WILLETT had accompanied SCHNELL to the shop, attempted to separate them. He was unsuccessful, but the employees of the shop succeeded. As soon as they were separated SCHELL drew a Derringer pistol, which he had borrowed from Levi SOLOMON, and fired, the ball passing through GORDON's breast. GORDON ran to the street, where he fell, and SCHELL followed and beat him over the head with the pistol. He was soon after arrested."

"GORDON--TO BE INTERRED in SAN FRANCISCO -- The body of John GORDON, deceased, was sent to San Francisco yesterday for interment. Mr. GORDON had borrowed a horse of Mr. John DILLON to ride several miles in the country on Wednesday. The same evening the horse was found, about 5 miles from the city, by a vaquero, the saddle being under the animal's belly. Notice was given to Mr. C. McCLOUD of this fact, who shortly afterwards, while riding home, discovered a body lying upon its back on the ground, his attention being attracted to it by a steer, which was scenting it. An inquest being held on the body, it was found to be that of John GORDON, and the horse mentioned, was the one he had borrowed from Mr. DILLON. The horse had evidently ran away, throwing his rider, whose foot hung in the stirrup, and was dragged until the animal became exhausted. From the marks on the ground the horse started a 2nd time, and after dragging the body about 10 feet, the foot was disengaged; but too late, as life must have been extinct. The deceased?s coat was found a distance off, his vest was drawn to the back of his neck, and his shirt drawn over his head. He was badly bruised upon his back, breast, and arms, but death evidently had been occasioned by the horse kicking him on the forehead, the hoof striking over each eye of the unfortunate man with force sufficient to occasion death. Near him was a $2.50 piece, and several half dollars were upon the ground, and 1 half dollar lying upon his person. The singular distribution of money was somewhat puzzling. The deceased was a married man and his wife telegraphed from San Francisco that his body be sent there for interment. The horse he rode was a vicious one; having ran away with Mr. DILLON a short time since, frightening another horse which Mr. DILLON's son was riding at the time, which also ran away and occasioned the child?s death. GORDON was aware of the disposition of the horse, but urged Mr. DILLON to allow him to use it after being at first refused." Source: Stockton Daily Argus, 18 May 1861. Transcribed by Dee.

Some further words passed between them, when SCHELL struck GORDON Over the head with his cane, breaking the cane. They then clinched, when Ralph DORR, who with E.A. WILLETT had accompanied SCHNELL to the shop, attempted to separate them. He was unsuccessful, but the employees of the shop succeeded. As soon as they were separated SCHELL drew a Derringer pistol, which he had borrowed from Levi SOLOMON, and fired, the ball passing through GORDON's breast. GORDON ran to the street, where he fell, and SCHELL followed and beat him over the head with the pistol. He was soon after arrested."

"GORDON--The case of Willis CORSE, indicted for the murder of McCreary GORDON at the Sazerac Saloon, San Francisco, on the 5th July, has been concluded by a verdict of Not Guilty. After the verdict of the jury, Judge HAGER remarked: You may consider yourself very fortunate in the verdict of the jury. I do not consider you guiltless; for you might have avoided a difficulty by retiring. Your escape now, I hope, may have the effect of warning you from getting into difficulties hereafter, and be a lesson to conduct yourself for the future as a good and virtuous citizen.

Louis GOUHL, his partner, went with him to the Bay and remained with him until his death.

Both of these men were upright and industrious, and highly respected in the community. They were natives of Prussia and single men. Both men have resided on Deer Creek for several years, and were not known to be subject to paralytic fits.

"GRAY--A Prominent Man Dead. Matthias GRAY, a well known music dealer of San Francisco, died in that city at 7 o clock Wednesday morning last. One week ago Mr. GRAY was stricken with paralysis of the brain, which was followed by congestion of the lungs and heart. He gradually sank and Wednesday morning brought the termination which the attending physician foresaw as inevitable from the first. He leaves a widow and a son 11 years old. He was a prominent member and director of the British Benevolent Society and a member also of the Bohemian Club. * * * Passed Away. Matthias GRAY, the well known and very popular music dealer of San Francisco, who passed from earth a few days ago was one of the most noble and generous men on the Pacific Coast. His many charities were mostly of a private nature, and bestowed in such a manner that the receiver hardly knew whom to thank. A few years ago a lady who was in trouble concluded to get up a concert at Platts hall, San Francisco. The lady was not personally acquainted with Mr. GRAY; but that generous man had heard of her misfortune and distress, and when she called at his store to ask what he would charge for the use of a Steinway piano for the occasion, Mr. GRAY very politely informed her that she could have the use of the piano free of charge.
