The youth of Judge Hanna was char
acterized by a hard struggle for ex
istence, to which emergency he proved
thoroughly equal. Since his fourteenth
year he has practically supported him
self, his first money being earned as a
clerk in a general store in Bath, N. Y.
In 1848 he went to Ohio and clerked in
the Recorder’s office for a couple of
years, and while there had his attention
called to the steady stream cf emigration
headed towards the western coast. In
the spring of 1850 he joined a train
bound for California, but owing to the
inadequate supply^ of provisions the
train broke up at Salt Lake City, and 1

gathered in order to proceed to their
Judge Hanna waited for a month and
then accompanied four other people with
a wagon and two yoke of oxen to the
coast, eventually arriving in Hangtown,
now Placerville, where he mined with
more than average success. In 1852 he
reached the Yuba river, and remained
there until the Fraser river excitement
of 1858. He then made his way to San
Francisco, intending to follow the latest
trend, but instead took boat for Creseut

Tinsman and Mrs. Ede were thrown
together and started to swim toward
the south bank7 of the river. Miss
MacMillan, however, was more excit
ed. Mr. Jacobs, who was swimming
splendidly, was apparently attempting
to encourage her, when she grabbed
him around the neck and body, hold
ing on with a death grip and despits
his helpless position, he put upa
strong battle. With only one arm
free, he swam with the young lady
down the stream and toward shore, a
distance of perhaps 100 yards. When
about twenty feet from shore and be
fore aid could reach them, he appar
ently became exhausted and both he
and Miss MacMillan sank from sight.
Mrs. Edo and Mr. Tinsman also
fought bravely for their lives, the wo
man especially swimming until she
was exhausted and dragged to the
bottom by the strong current.

NEGROES FOR CALIFORNIA.
One Thousand Will Migrate Frew
Texas to Golden State.
Houston, Tex., May 16.—An exodus
of negroes from Texas to the Pacific
eeast. during the past several days has
Increased, until now it is of large pro
portions. Hundreds have left this sec
tion and over a thousand are prepar
ing to go. Almost every train carries
small bedtes of from ten to fifty. The
transcontinental roads have been
called on to make special provisions
for the traffic. Most of the negroes are
headed for Lower California, but some
are going to Washington and British
Bitterne3 of racial feeling, which
ha3 been intensified recently by
crimes of the worst class of negroes,
has brought about the negroes' deter
mination to quit Texas. The matter
has been discussed tn churches and se
cret societies, and the movement ns a
thoroughly organized one. It is the
better class of negroes that is going,
leavln gthe vicious behind.
They believe that on the Pacific
eeast there is no antagonism against
the race and that negroes and white
people live in peace and unity. The
exodus presented a serious phase and
threatens a labor famine in better ag
ricultural sections and in cities.
