**Dr. SNELL Dead -- ‘New Era’ Dec. 8th -- The many friends of Dr. SNELL in Pacific Grove will be pained to hear of his death, which occurred in San Francisco Thursday afternoon. Dr. SNELL, who was a cousin of the renowned Wm. Cullen BRYANT -- they were playmates together as boys -- came to Pacific Grove about 5 years ago from San Jose, where he had been a practicing physician for 15 or 20 years. He had been twice married and had 2 sons and a daughter by the first wife. His daughter, Miss Clara SNELL was married the day her father died, to J. ELLIOTT, who moved from Monterey to Pacific Grove a few months ago. She was of course unaware of the fact of her father’s death, the telegram announcing it not arriving until after the marriage ceremony had been performed. Mrs. SNELL and Mr.&Mrs. ELLIOTT took the early train for San Francisco yesterday morning to attend the funeral which will take place in that city.

**ROBBERS CAPTURED -- Sheriff McKILLICAN of Alameda county and 2 railroad detectives passed through Salinas on the north-bound train last Monday with George RAY and Bill RAINFORD whom they had arrested that morning at King City. The prisoners are charged with having robbed the secretary of the Joshua Hendy Iron Works of $15,000 on the local train at Oakland about 2 years ago. The 2 men have been working on the KING ranch at King City for the past year and claim to be innocent of the crime with which they are charged. They have been shadowed by detectives for some time and the officers think they have secured the right men.
**CHASING A BIG WHALE -- The beaches and rocks in the vicinity of Pacific Grove were lined last Saturday with spectators eagerly watching the maneuvers of a huge “right” whale, which was spouting within rifle range of Chinatown Point. It could be easily seen that the whale was of mammoth size. Don PEDRO, the famous whaler of Monterey and 3 sturdy fishermen started in a whaling boat in pursuit of the monster of the deep. The weather was rough and they were led a chase far out beyond the heads. A press dispatch sent out Saturday evenings says: “Up to a late hour this afternoon the men have not returned and considerable anxiety is expressed for their safety. A terrible wind is now blowing, which is liable to increase to a small hurricane, so it will be a pretty hard night on the men if they have to weather it all night. If the whale is captured it will net the men at least $2,000, as the smallest ever captured in Monterey brought $1,500.”
