The Work of Building Up a
What .1. M. Griffith Did in the
An Edifice That Would Do Credit fo
A Solid Building 120xlS0 Feet, Four Sto
ries High, With Nearly 120
Yesterday afternoon a few invited
guests met in the rooms of Mr. J. M.
Griffith in his new block, known as the
Potomac, on Broadway, south of Second
street, at the formal opening of the
building. Incident to the occasion w r as
an elegant little collation served to the
guests in the spacious and handsome
dining-room in the building. The meet
ing around the hospitable board, over
which Mr. Griffith presided with his
customary cordiality, was a most pleas
ant one to all present.
But pleasant as all this was, the meet
ing is not the object that calls for notice
at this time. It is the occasion that
brought this little party of distinguished
Angelefios together. The Potomac block
is the topic the people of this handsome
city will be interested in. In brief, it
lies, like the celestial city of the apoca
lypse, four-square, being 120x120 feet
area on the ground. That is, the frontage
extends the full distance of two city
lots along the west side of Broadway, be
ginning 120 feet south of the corner of
Second. It extends back 120 feet, uot
quite half way to Hill street. The
edifice is four stories in height, and con
tains 113 rooms, outside of the dining
room, kitchen, bath rooms, etc. Under
the whole building there is a fine base
ment. The cost of the edifice first and
last has been nearly $150,000. It is per
haps the very largest, the most substan
tial and nearly the most costly building
in the city. Whether it is absolutely so
or not, it is certainly a noble pile and
does great credit to the enterprise of its
founder, and illustrates his unbounded
faith in Los Angeles. This is
the more remarkable in view of
the fact that Mr. Griffith has put
this building up during the past two
years when business was dull, when
faith in the future of the city was
wavering to such a degree that the un
wise were disgruntled because there was
no opportunity to sell out.
The faith of the builder oi the
Potomac block is all the more significant
for the reason that he has seen the ups
and downs of Los Angeles for a period
of nearly thirty years. He has spent
his manhood days all here, and has at
all periods been greatly instrumental in
the developing of its resources. Where
the Potomac block has just been erected
he built a dwelling some 22 years ago,
that at that time discounted by long
odds all the residences in the city. Mr.
Griffith has seen Los Angeles
pass through periods of real de
pression of so protracted dura
tion that faifth well might wane.
His never did. He always believed in
the future of this matchless section, and
just as he has backed his opinion in the
erection of this noble building, so he al
ways put in money here into all sorts of
legitimate enterprises, sure that there
would be a return in time. He has made
many ventures, but never one so wise as
in tbe building of the Potomac.
The plan of the building was made by
Curlett & Eisen, architects of this city,
who also planned the new court house,
the Sisters' school on Boyle Heights and
others of the best structures in the city.
The contractor for tbe erection of this
building was Andrew McNally, whose
workmanlike and honest handiwork is
impressed upon the city at every
hand. The Potomac well illustrates
the substantial and thorough char
acter of his w r ork. The brick
was made in the great patent
kiln at lnglewood, and is as good mate
rial of the kind as ever went into any
buildings. The fine pressed brick in the
trimmings was imported from the east.
The stone is from the famous Sespe quar
ries in Ventura county, and is as hard as
granite, while being of a fine, rich brown
color. One of the features of the build
ing is the finish in the interior. Ihe
wainscoting which runs through the
entire building is all of the best Oregon
pine, trimmed with clear and perfect
ash. All the building is furnished with
steam heating apparatus, and all the
floors are supplied with hot and cold
water, bath rooms and kindred
accommodations. There are two
elevators in the building, one
for passengers in the front of the build
ing, an Otis of the most approved pat
tern ; in the rear is another for the
hoisting of freight to the upper floors.
It will elevate a ton weight with the
greatest ease. These elevators are run
by compressed air supplied from an en
gine run by steam in the basement. The
exhaust steam heats the water for the
bath rooms and such purposes in the
A marked feature of the Potomac is
that there are no poorly lighted or badly
ventilated rooms in the whole edifice.
The rear of the block is all open to a
large lot, and through the center of the
building extends from basement to
roof a large area to furnish light and air
to the rooms. The halls are nobly
broad, and run both ways the whole
length and breadth of the building. The
windows, doors and other finishings are
all in the best style of architecture, so
that the appearance of the rooms is
most inviting. The broad stairs in
front and rear, together with the two
elevators, afford perfect means of egress
from the building, so that no accident
could possibly occur in case of a (ire, a
contingency not at all likely to arise in
a structure so well planned and so per
fectly executed as this edifice is.
Already the block has attracted some
of the best people in the city as tenants.
The kitchen and dining-room are leased
to a very competent person, Mrs. Cook,
who conducts that department with
much success. Occupants of the build
ing may thus secure their meals without
going from the building.
It is certain that every room in the
Potomac will soon be filled with a most
desirable class of tenants. The certain
fact that the utmost scrutiny will be
exercised as to who may rent rooms in
the building, so that no one objection
able to the most fastidious shall find
lodging, will be sure to draw to it the
best ofcustom. The ground floor is of
course for stores. They are large,
well-lighted and most desirable
premises, and situated as they are on
the line of the cable cars from all quar

ters of the city, and in the very heart of
the business section, they will be very
desirable. The city hall is just across
Broadway is coming out. The Califor
nia Bank building on the corner, the Y.
M. C. A. edifice next, and then the Po
tomac, make about the finest row of
structures in the city. Judge J. D.
Bicknell owns next south of the Poto
mac, and it is understood that he will
soon erect a building much like the last
named, and quite in keeping with the
rest of the row.

THE FORGERY CASE
Continued Until Next Monday Morning
At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the
hour appointed for the preliminary ex
amination of Assemblyman J. M. Dam
ron and J. S. Chadwick, standing room
was at a premium in Justice Austin's
court, and it was a somewhat difficult
matter to obtain ingress to the room.
When the court called the case, District
Attorney Kelly rose and announced that
the attorney for the defendant Chad
wick had requested a continuance, as
he had been called away to Santa Bar
bara yesterday morning. He stated that
he was perfectly willing that a continu
ance should be had, provided that the
fact that it was granted at the request
of the defendants should appear upon
the records. Major Donnell addressed
the court briefly in favor of a continu
ance, stating that he had been retained
in the case to assist, and would like
time in which to become acquainted
with the facts connected with it before
At this juncture the defendant Dam
ron rose and moved the court for a seg
regation of his ease from that of the de
fendant Chadwick. The district at
torney announced that he would never
consent to such a proceeding, and the
court stated that it had made a conces
sion in the case of Justice Lockwood,but
that it was not prepared to make a simi
lar order in the other cases. The ques
tion before it at tbat time, however, was
not that of segregation, but on a motion
for a continuance, which would be
granted, and the examination was con
tinued until 10 o'clock ou Monday
Swell Commercial Tourists Provided
"J. Sellsilk and Helper" is a signature
that is nowadays often seen on hotel
registers. The name does not matter, it
is always the name of a commer
cial tourist, but the "and Helper" is
what puzzles people. Such a signature
appeared yesterday on the Nadeau reg
ister, and in reply to a Herald re
porter's question Clerk Burns explained
the matter. "You see, drummers now
adays carry great numbers of trunks;
we had one recently who had thirteen of
them; every year they carry more stuff
with them, until now the large firms
give their salesmen a man to do the un
packing and packing, and help generally ;
he is the helper, don't you see? Some
of the swellest drummers have two such
men." A drummer's life is a happy
one; soon all that will be required'of
them will be good looks and the ability
to spend money.
Nellie McHenry comes next Monday
night witli a new play, a new company,
new scenery and mechanical effects, and

school with which she lias so long been

Almost a Tragedy on a Spring-

The Shooter Escapes from the Car But Is
Recognized Later in the Evening
and Lodged in Jail.
At 10 o'clock last night Albert Ras
mus, a well-known hack driver, was
sitting alone on the rear seat of an in
coming Ninth-street horse car as it pro
ceeded along Spring street. At the
intersection of Fifth street, while the
conductor and driver of the car were
busily engaged in an animated discus
sion on the front platform, another pas
senger in the person of A. H. V. Sinden
jumped suddenly on the footboard
within three feet of Rasmus. The latter
glanced up hastily at the newcomer and
immediately recognized him, but before
he had recovered from his surprise
Sinden whipped out a large revolver
and pointing it deliberately at Rasmus's
head fired. His aim, however, was not
true, as the bullet struck Rasmus under
the left jaw, and passing through his
neck severed the wind-pipe. Neither
man had spoken a word up to
that time, and the driver and
conductor, both of whom heord the
shot, were too much interested in look
ing for its source, evidently supposing it
to have been fired from the sidewalk, to
notice the passengers on the rear plat
form, or to stop the car. In the mean
time Sinden rode as far as Fourth street,
where he jumped from the footboard
and ran towards Broadway, where he
disappeared. By the time the car
reached Third street the conductor had
discovered that Rasmus was wounded,
and Officer Chase was notified and rode
as far as Second, when he assisted the
hackman to the police station,
where lie was booked for medical
treatment. Drs. Wing and Morri
son were summoned, and after examin
ing Rasmus's . wound, pronounced
him as not in any immediate danger,
although it was considered advisable to
forbid him to talk much. His left cheek
and jaw were badly powder marked, the
pistol having evidently been held at
close range when the shot was fired.
The physicians stated that it was almost
a miracle that the ball should have
escaped the carotid artery in its passage
through Rasmus's neck.
As usual in such affairs, there was a
woman at the bottom of it, the
cause in this case being Rasmus's wife,
from whom he has been separated
for some time past. The wounded man
was interviewed in the city jail after the
physicians had left, and in spite of the
difficulty he experienced in talking,
seemed "anxious to tell his story. He
stated in effect that for the past eighteen
months he had had trouble with Sinden
on account of the latter's intimacy with
his wife, and that during that time hi ■
had repeatedly warned the interloper to
refrain from visiting her. She, how
ever, became infatuated with Sinden,
and husband and wife separated for a
time, but subsequently lived together
again for a few months, when
they parted once more. A short
time ago he went away to San Fran
cisco, but returned two days ago, and
learned on inquiry that his wife was
employed as a domestic at the residence
of Mr. Rhodes, at the corner of Fifteenth
and Georgia Belle streets. Yesterday
afternoon he called upon her there, but
found that Sinden had forestalled him,
and a scene ensued, after which he left
the house and did not see Sinden again
until the shooting occurred on the car
at the corner of Spring and Fifth streets.
After the shooting Sinden, it was sub
sequently learned, jumped on a cable
car and rode out to Rasmus's wife at
Fifteenth street, and returned about
11:45 o'clock. In the meantime the
police had been diligently searching for
him in every direction, but had found
no trace of him, but as soon as he
alighted from the cable cars he was rec
ognized, and a few minutes later was
arrested and taken to the county jail by
Detective Lawson and Captain Peabody.
He refused to make any statement of
the affair when seen by a Hebald re
porter in his cell at that institution, but
made a number of inquiries as to Ras
mus's condition and the nature of his
injuries. He appeared to feel immensely
relieved on learning that his victim was
not dangerously wounded; but reserved
a dogged silence when questioned as
to the shooting.
Sinden was for some time a special
officer and sexton at the Catholic cem
etery, but subsequently entered the em
ploy of Detective Lawson as a patrolman,
and was serving in that capacity at Pasa
dena until last night.
They Are Found 200 Feet Above the
An interesting discovery was made
yesterday by R. D. Sepulveda on
his ranch, one mile and a quarter from
San Pedro. He had been digging a
reservoir some 2,000 feet from the sea
shore, and 200 feet above sea-level, and
when he reached a depth of fourteen
feet from the surface he came across a
number of hard substances, which, upon
investigation, proved to be the bones of a
whale. Becoming interested in the
matter, Mr. Sepulveda dug around the
bones, and finally uncovered about fifty
feet of the skeleton of a whale in perfect
condition. How much larger the
skeleton is Mr. Sepulveda did not
know, but the fact that the
skeleton is there, nearly 200 feet
above sea-level, and 2,000 from the
shore, makes it a curiosity.
