Illinois hall overflowed with people
on Tuesday evening last when the
Young Men's Literary Society gave a
minstrel entertainment. Over 1,000
people were in the hall and more wanted
to go in but could not. The programme
itself was excellent and many of those
on the programme displayed consider
able talent. Eugene Kohler acted as
manager, Charles P. Kitts as assistant
manager, William Jelfries as treasurer
and R. W. Klages as musical director.
Frank Scheidler was the "middle man,"
Dick Sullivan and Fred Kitts handled
the "bone," and Eugene Kohler and
Ben Lanning twirled the tambourines,
all with as much grace as if they had
been on the boards before. Harry L.
Price, Eugene Kohler, L. F. Shepard
and Dick Sullivan sang solos, and the
Universal Quartette composed of Messrs.
Shultz, Carr, Thiele and Shipron, sang
excellently. In the second part, George
Hough delivered a comic sermon, Eugene
Kohler exhibited considerable ability
as a slight of hand performer. The
Universal Quartette sang several
songs, Messrs. Kitts & Lansing gave a
sketch entitled "Woman's Rights,"
Ben Everest and Ward Gould played on
several musical instruments, Messrs.
Kohler and Jackson sang several planta
tion melodies, Geo. Hargitt and Arnold,
J. 8., gave a sketch entitled "Boy Lost."
The Satis Bene Mandolin Club, com
posed of F. H. Sidail, A. H. Field, B. O.
McCord, Adolph M. Monsanto and W.
H. Alter, played several selections, and
the entertainment closed with a farce
entitled Fun in a Haunted Cooper Shop,
in which several of the above-men
tioned young gentlemen took part. The
entire performance was most satisfac
The Symphony Concert.
The First Congregational church was
tilled to overflowing on Monday night,
the occasion of the symphony concert of
the Los Angeles Orchestral Society. The
programme was excellently selected and
the society did exceedingly good work
considering that it was its first public
concert. The members of the orchestra
played with a unison that is seldom met
with under such circumstances, and as
a consequence there was far less discord
than might have been expected. There
was every indication that in the near
future Los Angeles will possess an or
chestral society which will compare fa
vorably with the older societies of other
cities. The orchestra played Beethoven's
overture to Egmont, Mozart's 12th sym
phony in G. major, G. Bach's night
song, Yon Suppe's overture to Leichti
Vmalliere, Schubert's symphony in B.
minor, and Mendelssohn's "War March
of the Priests." Miss Jeannette Wilcox,
who has a contralto voice with consider
able power and flexibility, sang Fil
lippi's "Perche" and Atditi's "Let Me
Love Thee." 11. E. Hamilton played
Leonard's violin "Fantasee de Alle
mande,"and Charles A. Valentine, Geo.
Grosser and Miss C. Stiles played
Dancla's second concert, for two violins

The Planter at Anaheim Destroyed
Early Yesterday Morning.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock yesterday
morning fire was discovered in the cen
tral portion of the Planters' hotel at
Anaheim. When discovered it was too
late for the supply of water on band to
be of any service, and the wooden wing
of the building was entirely destroyed
and the brick wing was seriously dam
aged. It is estimated that the loss on
the building and furniture will reach
$15,000, with an insurauce of $9,000.
No one kuew what started the fire, and
the cause will probably never be known,
for the fire had gained such a headway
before being discovered that those who
investigated were unable to find its
origin. Very little of the furniture was

THE WEYSE CASE.
Testimony of the Defendant and His
The Weyse divorce case was resumed
in department 3 of the superior court
yesterday morning, and occupied the
attention of Judge Wade all day.
The proceedings commenced with the
examination of the defendant, O. G.
Weyse, who denied the statement made
by his wife and sister-in-law relative to
his having quarreled with the former at
Staten island, at which time they al
leged that he smeared her face with a
rotten orange and struck her at a picnic.
He denied that such a scene as had been
described by his wife, during a thunder
storm, had occurred between them, and
it was not true that she gave birth to a
child next morning. In short, the wit
ness denied each and every statement
made by his wife, except that in regard
to the College street trouble. He
explained this by stating that on
going to the postoffice one day
he found a letter in the box, which he
at first supposed to be addressed to the
firm. He learned, however, on opening
it, that it was written to his wife by her
sister. He taxed bis wife with decep
tion when he reached home, but she dis
claimed all knowledge of the subject re
ferred to in the letter. She subsequently
acknowledged that she had deceived
him and that she did not love him. He
lost his temper and slapped her face,
telling her she was "no "better than a
strumpet." He regretted bis hasty
action immediately, and, apologizing for
it, begged her forgiveness and it was
then and there agreed that neither
should ever refer to the matter again.
That, he declared, was the first and only
time he ever struck his wife.
During the afternoon session Henry
Weyse, a younger brother of the defend
ant, was examined. He stated that he
remembered the occasion of Mrs.
Weyse's sudden departure about mid
night one night in July. Hearing his
little nephew screaming he rushed up
stairs, and found the boy in bed. He
was crying bitterly and said: "My little
mother has gone." The witness saw a
note lying upon the table, but did not
open it then, as he was busily engaged
in pacifying the child. After the boy
had been taken away to his aunt he
opened the note, which was written in
pencil, and read its contents. His bro
ther and sister were both awakened by
the noise, but Rudolph would not get
up, saying, when told of the cause, that
it was "a pretty how-d'ye-do." The
witness identified a note introduced as
evidence as the one be found in the
On cross-examination he said that be
accompanied Mrs. Weyse to France in
1880, as her health was not very good at
that that time. She was not seasick on
the voyage, which was taken in the hot
weather, because the passage was a very
calm one. She had two attacks of hys
teria while there, but the witness was
unable to say whether these were the
result of fatigue and exhaustion or not.
The witness admitted having had
seven interviews with Keys about the
case, and that Jones was present at each
of them, as he wanted to meet the tes
timony which Keys was expected to
give. Jones went down to Orange
county to see Keys at the defendant's
instigation, and succeeded in inducing
him to come up to Los Angeles and
make a statement of what he knew of
Speaking of the relations of the family
to Mrs. Weyse, the witness said that his
sisters, brother and himself all lived to
gether in the same house; that his sis
ters were not on speaking terms with
Mrs. Weyse, but that he was. His
brother, Rudolph, was afraid that if
Mrs. Weyse returned she and her hus
band would join forces "and knock him
out of his rights." The witness em
phatically stated that he never saw his
brother strike or abuse his wife at any
Rudolph G. Weyse, another brother
of the defendant, testified that he had
known the plaintiff for ten or eleven
years past and was present at her mar
riage to his brother, which was done by
contract. He came to California soon
after the wedding and did not see his
brother for over a year after
wards. He and his brother were
never very intimate, and in fact
had not spoken to each other for a
long time, although Mrs. Weyse's sister
was his wife. He never heard of his
brother abusing his wife until he accom
panied Mrs. Weyse to Attorney Doon
er's office. He then interpreted her
story to the lawyer and the first com
plaint was drawn and filed. Mrs.
Weyse went to France, where she re
mained for two years, until called back
on business. She and the witness and
his brother were partners in business at
that time, and the latter made an as
signment. The witness wrote to Mrs.
Weyse for a lease on some property
but she replied that she could not sign
one without her husband's consent.
Finally, however, at her suggestion he
consulted her attorney, Dooner, and
secured a "cut-throat" lease. He heard
that her husband was going to take the
children, and after consulting a lawyer,
learned that unless she secured a divorce
she could not prevent their father from
keeping them in his custody.
When they visited Dooner at his
office, the attorney asked Mrs. Weyse
on what grounds she wished to
secure her divorce. She stated that her
husband had slapped her once, but
Dooner said that was not sufficient, she
must make it strong if she wished to
win her suit. She then stated that her
husband had knocked her down and
dragged her by her hair. The witness
told her that it was no use lying like
that, for no one would believe that a
consumptive could do that. In spite of
the witness' protests, however, the com
plaint was drawn.
M. Goldschmidt was examined as to
certain conversations he had had with
Mrs. Weyse, and Detective A. B. Law
son detailed the circumstances of his
connection with the case, after which
court adjourned until Monday morning
at 10 o'clock.

A recent issue of the Salt Lake Tri
Engineer McCartney, of the Union
Pacific, returned yesterday from the
south country. He says the grade is
finished for 100 miles, or within ten
miles of Piocbe, and for thirty miles
from Milford all the culvert and trestle
work is done. While there are only
twelve miles of rails on hand, more is
now being shipped in, and from five
stations 20,000 ties are being loaded.
The contractors want 500 men badly,
and Mr. McCartney says there is no ex
cuse for any man to stand around idle
in Salt Lake when good wages and steady
work await him on the extension. It is
cold and windy on the desert ,so that
an overcoat was comfortable. The con
stant stream of wagons has cut up the
desert road until the dirt is as line as
rice powder, and the dust is simply aw
ful. The grading machines are en
veloped in a vast cloud all day long.
Some one signing himself 1). E., who
writes an article in a recent number of
the Railway Age, thinks that the next
step in railway extension involves the
completion of some one or more of tho
various lines now running into Utah to
the Pacific coast.
Salt Lake City will, without doubt, be
the next western terminal for a particu
lar railroad district, and is, therefore, of
more than ordinary interest from a rail
road standpoint. That Salt Lake is rap
idly growing into a great city isnotques
tioned. The city is the center of a par
ticularly rich country, which contains
immense wealth in minerals and large
agricultural interests. It is also the
center of a stock-raising country. So far
as machinery and productions are con
cerned, Utah is, strictly speaking, a con
suming country, and it is not necessary
to haul empty cars in any direction. The
territory does not as yet produce suffi
cient crops for home consumption, and a
good market is found here for Kansas
and Nebraska grain and hay.
The roads in Utah have a heavy local
business ; in fact, they do not accommo
date half the possible trade. This year
will see a number of new branches and
extensions completed. The Btah Cen
tral has just opened a new line through
the Wasatch mountains from Salt Lake
to Park City. The Union Pacific is con
tinuing its southern branch from Mil
ford southeasterly to the Pacific coast,
opening up one of the richest mineral
and agricultural sections in the west.
This new extension means two things:
a new prosperity for southeastern Neva
da, and a through line of its own for the
Union Pacific, from Council Bluffs to
the Pacific coast. [It has one already.—
Editor.] The Southern Pacific will,
some of these days, find itself without
the Union Pacific's western business.
But to return to the question of western
CfUtlets for the roads entering in Denver
and Pueblo. The Denver and Rio
Grande in connection with the Colorado
Midland Rio Grande Western is an
nouncing through trains between Salt
Lake and Chicago about July Ist in con
nection with the Rock Island. The Rio
Grande system has about completed the
widening of its gauge. If this new line
is to be worked under an agreement
similar to the Union Pacific and North
western, will this not add an additional
complication to the demoralized condi
tion of rates, that can only be straight
ened out by such roads as the Burling
ton and the Milwaukee having western
outlets of their own?
There is a spectre looming up in the
shape of a new direct line from O'Neill,
Neb., tp Salt Lake City, a distance of
860 miles. This new road, the Pacific
Short Line, is laying track at the rate of
two miles per day, runs through a re
markably good country, and will, when
completed, have a line probably 150
miles shorter than the Union Pacific and
Northwestern between Chicago and Salt
Lake City. The roads that push into a
new country and build branch lines to
accommodate the people jn local traffic
are the ones that prosper. Take the
Denver and Rio Grande system; its
great prosperity is largely due to this
policy. This line and its western outlet

HOW IT STARTED.
A Friendly Favor to Wonnded Soldiers
Originate! a National Cngtom.
The late Hon. J. F. Trumbull, of Connecticut,
was called "the friend of the Boldiers" because
it was through his influence that water waa
furaishedto sick and wounded soldiers while
traveling during the war. This practieeJhaß
further developed into the universal American
habit of drinking ice water on all available
occasions. So universal has this become, that
it may be called our national habit and it has
begotten a craving for ice water that is quite
appalling. The introduction of the water
cooler in offices is bad. Most water is filled with
the germs of disease and its cold action on the
stomach checks digestion, lowers the tone of
the stomach and brings about dyspepsia, with
all its attendant ills. This evil, which is the
cause of more summer sickness and kindey
disease than any other known cause, can readily
be avoided by mixing a little pure whiskey with
the drinking water. Thus the stomach can be
stimulated into healthy action aad its tone re
tained. Not only this, but pure whiskey mixed
with the water kills the germs of any disease
that may be lurking in the water and thus
avoids malaria and the thousand ills which
comeduringthe heated term. Butwhile whiskey
is a great benefit, it must be pure whiskey, and
unfortunately there is little pure whiskey in
the market. There can be not the slighest
doubt, however, as to the absolute purity of
Duffy's Pure Malt. It has stood the test of time.
It is used by the leading men and women of the
land. It is so pure in its nature that it cannot
harm even a child, and it is doing more than
any one thing to check summer dangers. Be
sure to secure the genuine. Insist on having

Cucumber and Elder Flower Cream
Should Be Used By All.
The lndy is much mistaken who thinks she
ha* thoroughly cleansed her face because she
lifts just washed it with water and soap. To
prove It—let her then use a little CUCUMBER
AND ELDER FLOWER ("REAM, by rubbing it
thoroughly in the skin and then wiping the
face well with a towel. The result—as seen on
tho 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
withers and turns the skin dark. Indeed, many
eminent dermatologists 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,
juice of cucumbers ana extract of elder Mower,
and contains no vaseline, glycerine, animal fat
or other substance w.iich would in any way
dry, wither or darken the skin or cause a
growth of hair ou 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. •
