Cronkhite, a well-known dentist of this
city, was married to Miss Alice L. Ed
wards, a niece of Professor Melville
Dozier, of the normal school. Dr. Read

ants were a little boy and girl six or
eight years old, each carrying a basket
ol flowers, and as the bridal party re
tired after the ceremony these little
ones preceded them and scattered the
flowers along the aisle. The decorations
of the church for the occasion were
unique and quite elaborate. In front of
the pulpit a graceful evergreen arch had
been erected, from the center of which
a large floral bell was suspended. Be

during the ceremony. The grand organ
was presided over by Miss Rider, of the
Baptist college. _

A very enjoyable musicale was given
at the elegant residence of E. A. Forres
ter, Esq., on Thursday evening by Miss
Katharine Kimball and pupils, assisted
by Miss Carrie Conger, pianist and ac
companist, and I'rof. Stamm and Mr.
Miss Kimball was in line voice, as
usual, and sang several selections of
classical music, the closing "piece de
resistance" being "Yon Josie Mista,"
which showed her flexible voice to ad
vantage, and won her a merited encore,
which she responded to with a little
ballad entitled, "A Life Lesson." The
pupils all did well, and showed by their
efforts the excellent training they are
receiving. The ease and absence of
mannerism were especially noticeable.
Miss Conger is recently from lowa, a
pupil of Sherwood, of Boston. Her bril
liant touch and careful rendering of the
difficult "Valse de Conceite" by Lieb
ling, was enthusiastically encored by
lovers of good piano music. She responded
with a little Spanish dance, very quaint
and pretty. Among those present were :
Professor Stamm, Professor and Mrs. H.
E. Hamilton, Mrs. J. D. Cole, Mr. and
Mrs. Larrabee, Miss Mollie Adelia

Hostile Apaches vs. Indian Education.
Editors Herald—ln 1880 the hostile
Apaches under Geronimo were captured
by United States troops, after a chase of
many months. The children who were
with them were perhaps as unfortunate
a group as we have any record of.
Whatever education they had was ac
quired from their savage degraded par
ents and associates, while upon the war
path. What could be worse"?
When this party reached ..Florida as
prisoners the children were sent to the
Indian training school at Carlisle, Pa.,
under the successful management of
Captain R. 11. Pratt. They were photo
graphed as they arrived; just four
months after they were photographed j
That our citizens may see what civili
zation can do for the most degraded i
savage child, I have placed in several j
prominent show windows of this city,
copies of each picture, and I invite all
citizens to stop and examine them. My
object in doing this is to call attention
to the efforts now made by the govern
ment to civilize and educate the Indian.
Having learned by more than two hun
dred years of bitter experience that it
costs less to educate and civilize an In
dian than to kill him with powder ami
ball, I will not here discuss either the
moral or political phase of the Indian
question. The Indian is among us—a
very troublesome factor. He must soon
be absorbed into our body politic. Al
ready many of them are voters, and all
will be very soon. Does it not become
us to compel them (as well as our white
population), to secure a common school
education? We give to any foreigner
who will become a citizen, 160 acres of
land and the benefit of public schools.
Surely we ought not to do less for the
The government training school of to
day endeavors to give the Indian an
English education with a practical
knowledge of the domestic arts, and
such use of tools as will enable him,
When he leaves school, to find ready
employment as a skilled laborer.
He must be able to do something use
ful well to enable him to find employ
ment on the crowded labor market. He
j must have such an education as will en
able him to be self-supporting, or he
will immediately join that great army of
white tramps who have had good educa
tion but prefer a blanket' and to beg
rather than work. In this state we all
feel the need of a better class of laborers
in house and field. Let us utilize what
we have. There are from five to ten
I thousand Indians in this state. For these
the government has done nothing;
about twenty per cent of this number
are of school age. We have eleven
schools in Southern California. The
commissioner of Indian affairs intends to
establish in Southern California an In
dian training school during the present
year. This effort will tend to improve
this class of our people, and the mission
ary should'second the teacher. I ask
your thoughtful attention to this sub
ject. Again I urge all to call and see the
pictures. See what four months of
kindness can do for a savage.

THE CENSUS TAKERS.
COMPLAINTS REPORTED FROM ALL
OVER THE COUNTRY.
Mr. Porter Says There is Nothing in
Them—Another Arrest Yesterday—The
Man in Jail—The Neutral Strip.
Supervisor of Census L. E. Mosher
received a telegram from Robert J. Por
ter, the chief of the bureau, telling him
not to be worried by the "kicking"
which was going on in his district, as
reports of similar sort were coming in
from all over the country. Mr. Porter
says that the supervisors find when
they come to investigate the complaints
that in nine cases out of ten the people
who declare they have not been counted
are to be found on the books.
Mr. Mosher has asked that the men
who have been at work in this district
be paid by the day instead of by the
name as was originally planned. None
of them have made satisfactory wages.
As the men are expected to work very
hard and the job lasts only a short time,
it is the intention of the government
thtti they shall receive about $6 a day.
Those who have been at work in this
city have averaged between $2 and $3 a
day, many ot' them not making more
than ifl or $1.50.
John J. Freeland, a man 65 years of
age, who lives at 775 Buena Vista street,
was arrested yesterday for refusal to
answer census questions. It seems when
the enumerator asked him his name he
answered that he did not know. The I
census taker, thinking that he meant to
be obstinate, gave his name in for
arrest. Mr. Freeland explains his an
swer now by saying that his mother
says that his name is John F. Freeland,
while his father says that it is John 15.
Freeland. so that he really is not sure
which is right. In default" of $500 bail
Freeland was sent to jail.
The enumerators who are working in
the northwestern section of the city re
port difficulty in ascertaining whether
people are living inside the city or not.
This is the locality where the boundary
is most uncertain. There appears to be
a sort of neutral strip, a piece of land
several miles long and several hundred
feet in width, covered with numerous
occupants of which, mindful
of the J|mger from the city and county
tax collectors, refuse to state whether
they live in one or the other, and trans
fer the imaginary boundary about to one
side or another to suit their purposes.
The people when asked by the census
takers whether they live in the city or
not are unable or unwilling to answer,
and the authorities are rather at a loss
to know what to do.
County Clerk Hamilton, of San Diego,
■writes a very liuinorous letter to Mr.
Mosher, in which he asks that Mr.
Paine, who was arrested a few days ago
for refusing to answer questions, be
gently dealt with, as it is "his first
REPUBLICANS IN COUNCIL.
Meeting of the Executive Committee of
the County Committee.
The executive committee of the county
Republican central committee held a
session yesterday morning in the rooms
of the Union League Club.
Fred J. Gilmore, chairman of the
county central committee, called the
meeting to order, and C. W. Pendleton,
the secretary of the committee, read the
call. It was in the form of a petition,
bearing the requisite number of names.
The regular meeting had been called by
Mr. Gilmore for the sth of July, but W.
E. Arthur, who was among the peti
tioners, explained that the extra meet
ing had been called because something
of a misunderstanding had arien with
regard to the manner in which the selec
tion of delegates to the state convention
should be made.
The secretary then called the roll, and
the following were found to be present:
Gilmore, Pendleton, Finlayson, Frank
enlield, Cochran, McLain, Summerland,
Wray, Tanner, Dreher, Arthur, Rutan,
Ilaverstick, Barron, Parker, Owens and

Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, ISS9.
There is nothing comparative or hesitating in their language when
the official analysts, chemists and scientists speak of the quality of
the Royal Baking Powder. "As good as," " harmless," " pure " are
tame phrases to describe the superlative merits of this great baking
powder. Whenever actual, scientific, practical tests are made, it is
emphatically declared superior in its leavening strength, purity and
wholesomeness. Witness the report of Prof. Wenzell, of the College
of Pharmacy Department, University of California:
San Francisco, Oct. ig, iBBg.
From actual analysis made by me,)
I pronounce the Royal Baking Pow

the text of the call issued by the execu
j tive committee of the state central com-
I mittee was ambiguous, and he advised
i that the central committee of the county
i should decide for themselves what

With regard to apportionment the
, following resolution was passed:
Resolved, That each and every elec

delegate and one for every fifty votes,
! and one for every fraction of twenty-five
or more votes cast for Harrison and
This would make a convention of be
tween 1140 and 360 delegates.
Mr. Finlayson moved that a commit
tee of five, including the chairman and
secretary, be appointed to formulate a
j call, detail a line of work, fix upon
dates for holding the primaries and
county convention, and report to the
committee next Saturday morning. The
motion was carried.
By unanimous consent the committee
was empowered to employ M. R. Hig
gins and \V. S. Moore as experts in the
matter of figuring out the apportion
ment of delegates.
The chairman then appointed the fol
lowing on the above committee :J. R.

of Mr. Summerland, Robert Owen was
added to the committee.

CURED BY CUTICURA.
My disease (psorinsis) first broke out on mv
left cheek, spreading across my nose, and al
mosl covering my face. It niii into mv eyes
and the physician whs afraid I would lose my
eyesight altogether. It spread all over my
head, and my hair all fell out, until I was
entire!*/ bald-headed: it then broke out on my
arms and shoulders, until my arms were just
one sore. It covered my entire body, my face,
head and shoulders being the worst. The white
scabs fell constantly from my head, shoulders
and arms: the skin would thicken and be red
and very itchy, and would crack and bleed if
scratched. After spending many hundreds of
dollars, I was pronounced incurable. I heard
of the Cuticura REMEDIES and after using two
bottles Cuticura Resolvent, I could see a
change; and after 1 haa taken four bottles, I
was almost cured; and when I had used six bot
tles of Ccticuua Resolvent and one box of
Cuticura and one cake of Cuticura Soap, I
was cured of the dreadful disease from which I
hail suffered for five years. I thought the dis
ease would leave a very deep scar, but the Cuti
cura Remedies cured it without any scars. I
cannot express with a pen what I suffered be
fore using the Cuticura Remedies. They
saved my life, and I feel it my duty to
recommend them. My hair is restored as good
as ever, and so is my eyesight I know of
others who have received great benefit from,

The lady is much mistaken who thinks she
has thoroughly cleansed her face because she
has just washed it with water and soap. To
prove it—let her then use a little CUCUMBER
AND ELDER FLOWER CREAM, by rubbing it
thoroughly in the skin and then'wiping the
face well with a towel. The result —as seen on
the towel—proves it. Soap and water scarcely
remove the impurities from the surface of the
skin; they never penetrate and cleanse the
pores; besides soap is a caustic, and dries and
wither* and turns the skin dark. Indeed, many
eminent dermatologist* go so far as to declare
that a woman should never apply soap and
water to her face if she wishes to preserve a
fresh complexion and youthful appearance.
Cucumber and Elder Flower Cream
possesses all the purifying and cleansing quali
ties possible. It is composed of milk of almonds,
I juice of cucumbers and extract of elder flower,
and contains no vaseline, glycerine, animal fat
ior other substance wnioh would in any way
dry, wither or darken the skin or cause a
growth of hair on the face. It is neither greasy,
Clammy nor sticky. It renders the skin beauti
fully pure, soft, and of a satin like texture and
bloom, keeping it free from wrinkles, and
youthful looking, t %
