John Francisco POPE of Chicago, father of John D. POPE and Emilie D. POPE, minors and grand children of the late John R. DOYLE, who was at one time leader of the bar of this State, has petitioned the Superior Court of the county, asking that a citation be issued to John J. DOYLE and Edmund M. DOYLE to appear and show cause whey they have not filed an account as trustees of the estate of the minors. John R. DOYLE died on December 23, 1906, leaving a will by the terms of which a trust was created whereby the two POPE children were to receive their mother’s share of this estate. John J. DOYLE and Edmund M. DOYLE were named as trustees. They were to invest the money received by them and apply the income to the education of the minor children. The trust was to terminate when the boy reached the age of 25 and when the girl became 22. They were then to receive their inheritance together with the accumulations. The petition recites that the trustees have never filed a report. Judge BUCK issued a citation to the two trustees, compelling them to file their account within ten days. The two POPE children have been residing in Chicago with their father for many years. Their mother died at her father’s home in Menlo Park about twelve years ago. Mr. POPE is a prominent attorney of the Windy City. Mrs. Antonia DOYLE, grandmother of the minors, died in 1910, and her estate was distributed only recently.

Last “Take” of a Pioneer Printer
A loyal friend, true and honest, is a fitting tribute to the sacred memory of the late William Henry MEACHAM, who died last Friday morning, May 23, 1913 at his home, 612 Prospect Row, aged 62 years, 1 month and 25 days.
He had worked Thursday and in the evening said he was feeling first rate, played with his little grandchild, Virginia COLLINS, and retired in good spirit. During the night he was taken with a pain in his stomach and the family were aroused; the trouble seemed to subside and they all retired at 4:20 a.m. At 6 o’clock Mrs. MEACHAM went to his room and called him, but no response came and she thought he was fooling her, even after she put her hand on his head which was still warm. Finally she saw his eyes and at once realized that he was no more. Dr. Morrison was called and responded promptly, but to no avail. At the inquest it was found through the autopsy that he died of acute dialiation of the heart.
Wm. H. LEE, of Santa Rose, a brother-in-law of Mrs. MEACHUM, was notified by wire and arrived about noon. By Mr. LEE’s advice it was arranged to take the remains to Santa Rosa, where the funeral took place Sunday.
The “Press-Democrat” and “Republican” of Santa Rosa each contained quite elaborate accounts of the death and funeral, from which we quote the following excepts:
“The remains of W.H. MEACHAM, a former resident of Santa Rosa, were tenderly laid to rest in the family plot in Rural cemetery on Sunday afternoon, the remains having been brought from San Mateo on the evening train Saturday.”
“The deceased had been engaged in newspaper work here for years, and after leaving here edited the Galt Gazette and was with other papers of this State. He was employed in the office of the San Mateo Index at the time of his death. “
“There was a large attendance of the relatives and friends of the deceased including a number from San Mateo, where he has resided of late years. There was a profusion of floral offerings, showing the respect in which he was held by many friends. The bearers were Editor J.L. Brown, of the San Mateo Index; Frank Woods, James Wood, C.C. GROVE, Thomas J. BUTTS and Charles E. LEE.
“Surviving the deceased are a widow, who was formerly Miss Katie CASTRO, two daughters, Mrs. Laura COLLINS and Miss Jaennette MEACHAM, and granddaughter, Miss Virginia COLLINS, all of San Mateo. A sister and two brothers, Mrs. CAMERON, of Meacham Station, George MEACHAM of Sparks, Nevada, and David of the old home place, who survive the deceased. Mr. MEACHAM was born in San Francisco April 18, 1851, and is believed to have been the first white child born in that city. He was a school mate of Attorney Thomas J. BUTTS, C.C> GROVE and a number of others who still reside in this section. The deceased was the son of the late Alonzo MEACHAM, one of the earliest pioneers of Sonoma county and the first postmaster of the original Santa Rosa, known then as Franklin.”
Mrs. E. GOODSPEED gave birth to a fine baby girl last week.
Harold HICKS, nephew of Mrs. H.F. HOWARD, has a badly sprained instep.

A very pleasant surprise party was given to Mrs. Edward FREYER last Friday by a few of her friends, including Mrs. Fritz HANSEN, Mrs. Ben HANSEN, Mrs. E. FORSELL, Mrs. Gust. JOHNSON, Mrs. CAMPBELL and others whose names we did no get.
Albert HENDRICKSON, the ten-year old boy residing at 525 Winter street, who had his foot crushed by an S.P. freight train while switching at Daly City station last Saturday, was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, where it was found necessary to amputate two of his toes.
Little Pauline JOHNSON was given a party at her home, 130 Irvington street, last Friday in honor of her 7th birthday, at which the following invited guests were present: Mrs and C.F. QUIRLY, Mrs and J.M. PITTS, Rev and Mrs. F.C. BOREN of Oakland, Mrs and C.A. JOHNSON, Rev. C.L. DUNCAN, Herbert and Paul BOVEN and Misses Elizabeth PITTS, Alice MATHIAS, Pauline JOHNSON. (Boven and Boren as printed)
Mrs. Bridget E. DUNN, an old resident of Colma, and very highly respected, died suddenly of paralysis last Monday, May 26, aged 66 years, 2 months and 25 days, a native of Ireland. The deceased was the mother of Edward P. and Joseph DUNN, Mrs. Annie CLARK and Mrs. Chas. SUENDERMAN. The funeral took place Wednesday and a requiem high mass was celebrated fro the repose of her soul at St. Ann’s church, after which the remains were laid to rest in Holy Cross.
Little Girl Died From Hydrophobia
Two weeks ago these columns contained an account of a dog that afterwards died at Colma of hydrophobia, having bitten little Jane BAKER, the 4-year old daughter of C.B. BAKER, of St. Paul Minn., who with his family are spending the summer at Moss Beach.
The child was taken to a San Francisco hospital where she received every care and the best medical skill, but the physicians were baffled and the child died last Monday, May 26.

The Daly City Post Office Name Changed
The welcome information has at last come from Washington that the citizens of Daly City have succeeded in having the name of their post office changed from “Vista Grande” to “Daly City”, an achievement that has been sought in repeated efforts since Daly City was incorporated over two years ago.
With this change also come the information that Mrs. Hazel C. RUSSELL has received her appointment as postmistress and she took charge May 20.
Mrs. E.L. LANG who resigned, did so much to the regret of the patrons of the office, for she was exceptionally efficient in her duties and gave perfect satisfaction in every way. But it seems we are most fortunate in Mrs. LANG’s successor, for Mrs. RUSSELL Is in every way agreeable and bids fair to make an excellent official.

The Trustees of Daly City
