THE NEW RAILROAD.
Who Is Backing the Los
Angeles and Glendale?
The Purchase of Rattlesnake
Island and ' >ther Movements.
A List of the Millionaire Stockholders
In the New Scheme.
Are the Missouri Pacific and the Rio
Grande Combination the Power
Behind th-3 Throne?
No more important movement in an
industrial way has been made for years
in Los Angeles than the organization of
the Los Angeles and Terminal railroad
company. The outlines of this ap
peared in the papers of yesterday, recit
ing that B. F. Hobart of St. Louis had
been chosen president of the company
and T. B. Burnett vice-president. Tbe
latter is now a resident of this city, and
is general manager of the company. It
is also known to the public that
these gentlemen and their associates
sometime since obtained control of the
Cross roads, the or Los Angeles, Pasa
dena and Glendale.
A matter of considerable interest is,
who is behind this movement? Thus
far, no one has been able to get at the
heart of this mystery. All sorts of con
jectures have been made, the Union
Pacific being generally credited with the
work. Tbe board of directors is a poin
ter, and the stockholders in the new
road is a better one. Here are the hold
ers of the stock, so far as vet appears:
B. F. Hobait, Chas. 11. Bailey, T. B.
Burnett, W. H. Workman, Dan McFar
land, H. T. Lee, R. C. Kerens, Geo. E.
Leighton, Geo. B. Leighton, E. F. Leon
ard, Geo. W. Parker, 8. VV. Fordvce,
Chas. A. Goddard, Jeff Chandler, 8. B.
Elkins, Thos. Lamgan, Alvah Mansur,
Morgan Jones, John T. Davis. B. F.
There is a big lot of railroad talent in
that list. Several of these are railroad
presidents, any one of whom could
"blow in" a million and not feel it.
Note, they are mostly people of St.
Louis or that part of the country.
What have they done? They have
bought the Cross road, both
branches, that to Pasadena and
that to Verdugo canon, via Glen
dale. They also bonded to Rattlesnake
island early in the summer and put up
sufficient to hold the option. This deal
includes the whole island, all the marsh
land adjacent on the Dominguez family's
interests and both sides of San Pedro bay.
That deal will be consummated, and this
syndicate will become the owners of that
water front property. The sum to be
paid has never been made known, but it
is a large one. In addition to this rights
of way will be secured—they are nearly
all now secured —for a road down the
east bank of the river, to the south
limits of the city, and thence to the sea
at Rattlesnake island.
What will be done? Next Monday
the board will go before the council and
ask for a franchise along the river
to build and operate a road. It
is not likely that any delay will
be encountered in getting this,
as absolute guarantees will be given,
the road will be built at once. The
matter is so important to the city, that
the council will in all reasonable proba
bility grant the right at once.
As soon as this franchise is secured
and the material can be got on the
ground, work will begin and be continued
until the road is completed, the wharf
built and all in operation to tide waterat
At the same time, or nearly so, the
Glendale road will be widened to a
standard guage, and that branch will be
continued up the San Fernando valley,
by way of Burbank, to the Santa
Susanna pass, and thence down the
Santa Clara valley to the ocean
at Hueneme. Now, all that is
quite an enterprise in itself. All
these roads connect rich and populous
districts, where there will be a great
deal of local business. The roads will
pay from the word go. And yet the
scheme looks too big to be merely local.
But no line of questioning can get out of
any one what the programme is to be.
Mr. Burnett concedes that this is the
Pacific Coast terminal of a trans-conti
nental line, but when asked the route
east says that has not been
fully determined on, and when asked
what interest there is behind it, he says
the interest of the stockholders. It has
been generally thought that the Union
Pacific was the power behind t he throne.
But is it? These people are not Union
Pacific men. They have no connection,
and have not had, with that road. Many
of them are associates of Jay Gould.
It will be noted that tbe Missouri Pacific
which reaches Denver is closely allied
with that great recent consolidation and
improvement of the Denver and Rio
Grande, the Colorado Midland and the
Rio Grande Western. In the same con
nection it may be noted that from the
crossing of the Green river where the
junction is, surveys have been run
southwesterly, catching up the head
waters of the Virgin river, and follow
ing that stream towards the Grand
Cafion of the Colorado. In
the same connection are the surveys
made this side of The Needles toward
San Bernardino. All one can do in the
absence of information is to reason and

Most people in this end of the state are
quite willing to concede the merits of

can afford to do this because they are
dead sure Mr. Pond will be elected in

home merit is often ignored.
Col. Markham would be surprised to
hear of the number of Republicans right
here at home who will vote for Pond.
One said yesterday to a Herald repor
ter: "The red, red rose is a handsome

a delicate plant, not hardy enough to
withstand the chilling frost of the
autumn days. In the opening days of

Then came along another stalwart
Republican, who said: "I see Col.
Markham got the army headquarters
to remain here, and now it is rumored
that he is the man who struck Billy
Patterson, that killed Cock Robin, that
has caused the strike on the Vanderbilt
lines and did all the other great acts of

RACQUET AND BALL.
Yesterday at the Santa Monica Tennis
The prospects are that the tennis
tournament at the Casino will be pro
longed until Wednesday next at the
least, as the larger part of the pro
gramme still remains to be played off.
Very little headway was made yester
day, although the courts were almost
constantly occupied. The morning's
sport opened with the mixed doubles,
which attracted considerable attention.
In the preliminary round Mr. and Mrs.
Waring easily defeated Miss Routh and
Abbot Kinney by a score of 6-2, 6-1;
and Miss Gilliland and Cawston beat
Miss Shoemaker by a score of 0-3, 0-2.
In the first round, Miss G. Gilliland
and Cawston defeated Miss Gilliland
and Corson. Mr. and Mrs. Waring beat
Miss English and Van Doren, after a
most exciting contest, by a score of 5-0,
0-5 and 6-2. Both ladies played superb
ly, and were applauded repeatedly,
throughout the game.
In the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. War
ing played against Miss G. Gilliland and
Cawston in the deciding round. The
game was closely watched by a large
crowd of interested spectators, who
evinced their appreciation of every
brilliant stroke in unmeasured applause.
The first prize, a silver mounted blotter
and pincushion, presented by the South
ern Pacific railroad company, was won
by Miss Gilliland and Cawston, by a
score of 6-4, 6-1.
Shortly afterwards, the winners were
pitted against Miss Carter and her
brother, Robert, who held the cham
pionship of '89, for tbe championship
This game excited more than usual
interest, as in spite of the fact that the
Carters were considered as well nigh
invincible, their opponents bad shown
such excellent form in their previous
games, as to somewhat shake the confi
dence reposed in the last year's cham
pions. The contestants received a most
gratifying reception upon taking their
positions. The playing all round was
such as can only be seen in a champion
ship game, and the spectators lost con
trol of themselves in their enthusiastic
admiration of the skill exhibited by the
quartette before them.
Both ladies executed many brilliant
strokes, and Cawston made a gallant
struggle, but Bob Carter who played up
close to the net was the center of at
traction, this effective service and
brilliant volleying fairly bringing down
the house on several occasions. The
match resulted in another victory for
the Carters, who defeated their oppo
nents with a score of 6-1, 6-0.
Robert Carter will in all probability
be called upon to try conclusions with
the winner of the all comers' singles
this afternoon for the championship of
One of the courts was occupied for the
greater part of the day by the compe
titors for the association singles. The
result of the day's play was as follows:
Preliminary round : K. Carter defeated
Cawston by default ; Woodhouse beat
Moore. 6-2, 6-0; Wright defeated Hart,
6-4, 4-6, 6-3; Baker beat Van Doren, 2-6,
6-1, 6-3; Lester defeated Chase, 5-6, 6-5,
6-1: Manning beat McKerron, 6-5, 1-6,
6-4; Church defeated Germain, 6-4, 6-2;

First round—Fairchild beat Kinney,
6-5, 0-5; Baker defeated VV right, 6-4,
6-0; Lester beat Manning, 6-1.6-1; Coul

The polo club has arranged to hold a
field day on the afternoon following
upon the close of the tennis tourna
ment, and an interesting programme
has been compiled for the occasion.
There will be a match game at the polo
grounds on Saturday afternoon.
A Drummer and a Dealer Have a
Shortly after noon yesterday A. Green
wald, the proprietor of a cigar store on
the corner of First and Spring streets,
and Louis Basch, a drummer for a San
Francisco wholesale house, were arrested
by sergeant Jeffries of the police force
for disturbing the peace, and both were
subsequently fined in nominal sums by
P. E. King, sitting for Justice Lock
wood, for having disturbed the peace.
It will be remembered that a few days
ago some cigars were seized by a revenue
officer at Mr. Greenwald's store, which
it was claimed were domestic made,
placed in boxes which had contained
imported ones, which he had purchased
from the house represented by Mr.
Basch. Yesterday the drummer called on
Greenwald and remonstrated with him
for using poor cigars in boxes which had
contained those made by his firm. The
result was that Greenwald rushed at
Basch and planted his fist on that gen
tleman's left optic, raising a decided
lump, after which he forcibly ejected
the drummer and chased him across the
street, almost into the arms of the burly
police sergeant who gathered them

Lucky Baldwin's String Coming to the
Yesterday at" Monmouth Park a won
derful record was made by Sinaloa, a
three-year-old filly. Sinaloa belongs to
the Santa Anita stable and was bred and
raised in this county, and is undoubtedly
the best filly in the country. Sinaloa,
with the celebrated Pike Barnes up,
won the Jersey stakes,.one and one
fourth miles, in the extraordinary fast
time of 2:04. This time has only been
excelled by Banquet, who ran the dis
tance in 2:03)/,, but Sinaloa's was much
the better performance, as she packed
more weight. Altogether yesterday was
a memorable day for California, as in
addition to Salvator's sensational mile,
several other races were captured by
California horses. The Santa Anita
thoroughbreds have struck a winning
gait, and Lucky Baldwin will win more
money this year than ever before.

JOHN WALSH TRIES TO ROB A MILK
An Early Morning Adventure in East Los
Angeles.—Mr. Walsh Receives a Bullet
In His Abdomen.—Was He a Robber
or a Plain Drunk.
Shortly after four o'clock yesterday
morning a middle-aged man drove up to
the East Los Angeles police station in a
wagon and surrendered himself to officer
J. R. Conleo. lie stated that his name
was William Bryant, and that he
was a milkman and resided on the Glen
dale road, near the "Three-Mile" house.
While be was driving along Lecouvveur
street a man jumped out of a bunch of
weeds, near the track of the Southern
California railroad and attempted to rob
him, whereupon he had shot at
and wounded the man, after
which he had driven away as fast
as he could. After hearing the state
ment, the officer suggested that Bryant
drive over with him to headquarters" on
Second street in his wagon, and the milk
man readily acceded to the propostion.
On the arrival at the police station Bry
ant was registered and detained until
the arrival of the chief, his horse and
wagon being placed in White's stable
Chief Glass on being made acquainted
with the facts, turned the matter "over
to Detective Wallin for investigation.
Bryant, when questioned about the mat
ter, readily volunteered a full statement
of the affair as follows:
"About twenty minutes to 4 o'clock
this morning I drove into Lecouvreur
stieet, and when just north of the Santa
Fe track I observed a man in the weeds
about a rod from me. He ran out and
cried: 'Stop, d—n you, stop; I want
your money.' He ran in front of my
mare, and she shied to one side anil
nearly tipped my light spring wagon
over. I cried out: 'Stand back, or I
will shoot,' but he paid no heed and
kept advancing, and tried to catch my
horse by the bits. After I had warned
him three times, and hepayingno atten
tion, I grasped my revolver, a 32
--calibre Smith ci Wesson, and
fired at him and he fell. My horse
jumped as the pistol cracked and I
thought I had run over him. I then
drove away, as I did not know but tbat
there might be more of them. 1 drove
on to Chestnut street and stopped at the
first house I came to, which was that of
W. Richter. He advised me not to go
back, but to go to the police station in
East Los Angeles and secure an officer."
Bryant further stated that an attempt
had been made to rob him about a week
ago at the same place, and, he believed,
by the same man. This was subse
quently corroborated by a man named
W. W. Holt, who stated that Bryant had
told him of it.
Deputy District Attorney Phibbs was
communicated with and "subsequently
accompanied Detective Wallin to East
Los Angeles on a visit to Bryant's vic
tim, John Walsh, who had been located j
at his home on Lecouvreur street,
within a few feet of the spot where lie
fell after being shot by Bryant. His
cries aroused his wife, who at once went
out and assisted her wounded husband
into the house. Drs. Wise and Carlisle
were summoned, and upon examination
of the patient, found that he had a gun
shot wound in the abdomen, just above
and a little to tbe left of the navel, the
ball having penetrated through the
waistband of his pants and become
lodged in the abdominal muscles. It is
not considered by the physicians that
this wound will result fatally, for as far
as can be ascertained the bullet did not
penetrate the intestines.
John Walsh, who was formerly an
employee of the Lacy Clay Manufactur
ing company, when questioned about
tbe affair, affected ignorance of the
cause of his wound at first; but subse
quently stated that at three o'clock be
left officer Harvey, with whom he had
been talking, on the Downey avenue
bridge and walked homewards". When
within a few yards of his house on Le
couvreur street, lie met a milkman
driving his wagon. He did not speak :
but the milkman mumbled something,
which he was unable to understand,
and immediately pulled a pistol and
shot him in the stomach, after which he
drove off and left him lying in tbe road.
He then cried out for help, when his
wife came out and assisted him to the
house. He positively denied that lie
was under the influence of liquor at the
time. Mrs. Walsh, however, asserts
that for the last few days her husband
has not been at work and has been on a
protracted spree; and this would ap
pear to be correct, as he was far from
sober when he made bis statement to
the officer and Mr. Phibbs.
Bryant was arrested yesterday after
noon upon a warrant issued by Justice
Austin on complaint of Geo. I. Phibbs.
charging him with having assaulted
John Walsh with intent to commit mur
der with a loaded pistol. He was taken
into court at 4 o'clock p. m., and ar
raigned, his examination being set for
Saturday, September 13, at 10 o'clock f>.
m. Bryant was then released upon
bonds in the sum of $1500.
Another milkman named John Paul
called at the East Los Angeles police
station and reported that he had been
held up at the same place a few minutes
before Brvant, but had escaped by
forcing his horse into a gallop.
He Values its Loss at the Sum of Five
W. S. Munger of Pomona, yesterday
entered suit against Dr. A. Southworth,
asking $5000 for alleged malpractice.
The plaintiff says that he was suffering
of an ophthalmic disease in July, 1889,
and that the doctor undertook to cure
him. The physician attended Mr.
Munger, according to the allegations oi
the complainant, until the 27th day of
August of the same year, but used
neither care nor skill in" his treatment,
in consequence of which on abscess grew
npon the ball of plaintiff's right eye and
the sight was permanently destroyed.

pened to be none other than Dr. F. A. Barrett,
tho well-known St. Louis physician of 2652 Shen

differed from the potash preparations in that it
was purely vegetable, and becoming interested
in it, began a series of investigations, and in a
subsequent letter candidly admitted its curative
properties, and says: —
Wishing to test Its virtues further, I nscd It
in my own family, and prescribed it for patients
who required agenc'ral system regulator. Asa
result, I can say it is au almost absolute cure for
constipation, biliousness, dyspepsia, indiges

ally come from a disturbed condition of the

market last week and nearly
7000 ACRES ARE ALREADY SOLD,
and largely to old residents of Redlands and Riverside, who
thoroughly know the land and its capabilities, who know
what Redlands was six or seven years ago and what it is to
day; they require no prophet to foretell the future of this
Alessandro tract, "and which is pronounced by experts to
be fully equal in every respect to the lands of Redlands,
Riverside and old San Bernardino," and with a sure and
never failing supply of water from the FAMOUS BEAR
VALLEY RESERVOIR, which will be piped to each ten
acre tract plot. The price for another very limited quant
ity will be placed at
$75 PER ACRE!,

inch to four acres, and the yearly rental will be Ten
Dollars per acre; on all unimproved land there will be a
charge by the Water Company after the owner has been
officially notified that water is ready for delivery, of one
dollar per acre the first year, two and one-half dollars the
second' year and three and one-half dollars the third and fol
lowing years; if still unirrigated, it is confidentally expected
that water will be on the tract and ready to deliver to
the owners of the land March 1, 1891. Three dollars per
acre will be payable on application for option, 25 per cent
will be payable on selection of the land, the option being
taken as part payment, and contract given. The next 25
per cent will be payable when water is ready for delivery.
The balance in annual payments from that date, with inter
