"SHERRY--THE SAN FRANCISCO TRAGEDY -- The catastrophe at Minna and New Montgomery streets, San Francisco, was more destructive of life and limb than was at first reputed. 4 persons were crushed to death and several others were badly injured, 1 or 2 of whom may not recover. There seems to be but little doubt that the disaster was the result of culpable mismanagement as the unsafe condition of the walls of the new building had been discussed the evening before they fell. The 'Chronicle' of Thursday says: The killed are Johanna McDONALD, aged 37 years; Mary LOGAN, aged 35; Peter McDONALD, aged 9 months; and Lizzie SHERRY, aged 11 years. The last named is a daughter of Mrs. McDONALD by her 1st husband. Johnny SHERRY who was spoken of as having been injured, was in a doubtful condition yesterday, he having been more seriously injured than was at first supposed. Coroner LETTERMAN took charge of the remains of the killed, and they were conveyed to the morgue and there laid out. 3 tables were placed side by side, on one of which Mrs. McDONALD was place, on the next lay her dead children, and further on were the remains of Mrs. LOGAN. Soon after 10 o'clock in the morning a crowd of persons thronged to the Morgue with that morbid desire which is a part and parcel of human nature -- a desire to look upon the faces of those who have been suddenly called to that unknown country from whose bourne no tidings are received, or no traveler returns. The Coroner's Clerk, Mr. O'BRIEN, then opened the doors of the Morgue and from that time a continual crowd poured in until evening, when it was found necessary to refuse admittance to any more. It is estimated that over 5,000 persons, men, women and children, visited the room in which the bodies lay." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 25 Feb 1871. Transcribed by Dee.

"SKINNER--SAD AFFAIR -- In relation to the finding of the body of Frank H. SKINNER, in the water at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, on Wednesday last, and which was mentioned in our San Francisco dispatches in yesterday's 'Independent,' the 'Bulletin' of last evening contains the following additional intelligence: "In our report of the finding of F.H. SKINNER, yesterday, we stated that up to the hour of going to press nothing was known of his death. We have since learned that he left his house 2 weeks since in order to make arrangements for a trip to the East. He was not again seen, nor heard of, until his body was found on the ocean beach. It is said by some that he had money on his person at the time of his disappearance, and that foul play may have transpired. This, however, is merely conjecture."
