Mayor Pond Enthusiastically
Received at Pasadena.
He Calls the Place a Valley ot"
Hon. Stephen M. White Promises to
Talk Politics Next Time.
The Democratic Gubernatorial Nomine.s
at the Crown of the Valley—Some
Pleasant Speeches—A Warm
At eight o'clock yesterday morning a
number of fine turnouts, two of which
were four-in-hands, drew up in front of
tbe Nadeau, and Mayor Pond, ex-Sen
ator Del Valle, Hon. Stephen M. White,
and a party of prominent Democrats
took their seats in them for a flying trip
to Pasadena. The party consisted of
Mayor Pond, Stephen M. White, Judge
Ling, James J. Avers and Win. Nord
holdt, who occupied the first four-in
hand carryall, Maclovioi). Botello hand
ling the ribbons. In the other carriages
were R. F. Del Valle, ex-Mayor Work
man, ex-Mayor Bryson, Judge Hum
phreys, C. A Last and Captain Barrett.
John T. Gaffey, who started from Santa
Monica, reached Pasadena by rail.
The drive to the crown of the valley
in the cool ot the morning was a delight
ful one. The four-in-hand in which the
writer rode, skimmed over the road like
the wind. The two leaders were Judge
Ling's line sorrel pacers, and the wheel
ers were Billy Nordholdt's fleet bay span.
The handsome animals were evidently
proud that they had the Democratic
"Csesar and his fortunes" behind them,
and made the distance from the Nadeau
to the Carleton in about forty-eight min
utes. Mac. held the ribbons with the
ease and grace of a Doble, and put tlie
noble animals through without a single
break in their pace.
On arriving at the Carleton in Pasa
dena, we found the street lined with
people, and a large reception committee,
with Mayor Lukens at their head waiting
to welcome the distinguished visitors.
Mayor Pond and Senator Del Valle,
with the rest of the party, were escorted
to the drawing-room of the Carleton,
which had been handsomely decorated
with flags and beautified with a tasteful
arrangement of flowers. In a few min
utes the room was filled with Pasaden
ans, who were introduced to the Demo
cratic candidates for governor and lieu
tenant-governor. A number of ladies
also were presented, and then a circle
was formed and Mayor Lukens formally
introduced Mr. Pond to the audience for
a short and informal talk.
Mayor Pond expressed his supreme
gratification at the cordial manner in
which he had been received, and paid a
fine tribute to the marvelous progress
that Pasadena had made since he was
last there. -He spoke in glowing terms of
the beauties of the country, and depicted
its possibilities from the wonderful re
sources he beheld on every band. He
said the visit was not a political one, es
sentially, but rather a social one. He
wanted to meet the people, and espe
cially the people in the home of the gen
tleman who was contesting with him for
tlie highest office in the state. He com
plimented Colonel Markham as a worthy
and deserving gentleman, and gave him
credit for fine discernment in selecting
his home in the midst of a Valley of De
lights, such as poets often dream of, but
commonplace humanity seldom realize.
He was glad to say that his visit to
Southern California had been marked
throughout with the kindliest welcome
from all sides any man could receive,
and he would return to San Francisco
with even a warmer and intenser feeling
of appreciation for the whole state than
he had before, if that could be possible.
Mayor Pond's brief address was
heartily applauded at its conclusion.
Hon. R. F. Del Valle was then called
for, and delivered a very happy two
minute speecli. He was followed by
Mr. White, who said he would be there
again during the campaign, when he
would talk politics and do hisbeßt tore
form some of the friends on the other side
who needed reconstruction. Col. James
j. Avers was next called for, and spoke
briefly showing how the men of energy
and enterprise of Pasadena had made in
a few years a paradise ont of a cattle
ranch, and built a large and promising
city where not long since the" squirrel
burrowed and the coyote roamed at will.
Ex-Mayor Workman followed in a short
speech in which local reminiscence
abounded, and then advised the people of
Pasadena to get ready to encourage the
railroad enterprise which he was pro
moting and which would land them in
Chicago in four days by the time the
World's Fair is held. He advised them
to get together and aid the company in
securing right oi way, for he said this
railroad would be of inexpressible value
Judge Ling, Mr. John F. Humphreys
and Mayor Lukens delivered short, pleas
ant and pertinent little speeches, and
the party then adjourned to tbe street.
The mayor of Pasadena then took Mr.
Pond under his wing and drove him
through the town, showing him some of
the most remarkable places. As it was
necessary be should return to Lis An
geles in time to take the 12:45 train for
San Francisco, and fearing that he
might miss the connection unless he re
turned on the 11 a. m. Pasadena train,
we left the carriages to be driven back
at the leisure of the drivers, whilst we
ail boarded the cars.
To our utmost astonishment the car
riages we had left in front of the Carle
ton at Pasadena were ready to receive
us at the Downey bridge depot when we
arrived there. Mac Botello, Bill Nord
holdt and Judge Ling had arrived sev
eral minutes before the cars with their
spanking four-in-hand, and the other
rigs got there as we reached the depot.
This to the merry discomfiture of Uncle
Billy Workman, who has become a high
mogul of the Cross road, and who was
dilating as we came upon the rapidity

weeks ago, but felt much re

making a trip to Oakland, in the hope
that a change of climate would be bene

traveling, on the ground that he was too
feeble to undertake so long a journey ;
but he insisted upon going. On arrival
in this city he had several hours to wait,
before the north-bound train left, and
while up town, making a few purchases,
he had the terrible hemorrhage which
resulted in his death. The jury returned
a verdict in accordance with the facts.

Race This Evening.
Capt. Sam Haskins called a meeting
of the Democratic Colored Zouaves to
order last evening, and stated that the
committee on finances was ready to re

the committee, stated that there was a
cash balance of $43.80 in the treasury,
and the committee recommended that
$25.00 of this sum be used for the pur

Steele. The meeting then adjourned
subject to the call of the chair.
Justice King Kindly Waives All Claim
The finance committee of the council
met yesterday morning as usual, but
beyond the usual routine business, it
transacted nothing of importance.
J. S. Chadwick appeared before the
committee, and presented the demand
of Justice W. C. Lockwood for $100.00 as
his salary for the month of August
last, which was accompanied by a note
signed by Justice P. E. King, waiving
all claims to tbe demand. The commit

THIRD WARD CLUB.
Moves to a More Central Place of
The Third Ward Democratic club met
last night to the number oi much more
than 100. S. A. Waldron gave the boys
a little talk on the silver question, which
was well received.
This strong club has moved into more
central quarters, having secured a good
hall at the corner of Broadway and
Fourth street, where no doubt the
membership will grow.
The club meets every Friday night,
and all the members of the party in the
ward ought to join at once.
Wlu> Shall lie the Colonel?
Today the companies from the Seventh
regiment of the N. Q. C. will assemble
in this city in the persons of their of
ficers, for the purpose of electing a col
onel for the regiment. There are two
candidates, acting Colonel Palmer, and
Colonel C, C. Allen. Colonel Palmer has
been in the organization for years and
is thoroughly identified with it. The
National Guard is too a school for the
young men of the country, to learn the
science of war in its rudiments.
It is a laudable ambition for a man to
want to rise, and the gratification of
this ambition will help the organization.
Colonel Palmer is making a gallant fight
for tbe place, and by all means he
ought to win.
GRAND MARSHAL RAMISH
Explains Why There Were Not
Adolph Ramish, the efficient grand
marshal who so successfully managed
the grand parade Wednesday evening,
stated to a Herald reporter last even
ing that he felt that be ought to explain
the reason of the scarcity of torches on
that occasion. It seems that the com
mittee having this matter in charge had
telegraphed for torches to San Francisco
shortly before the Republican so-called
Certain prominent Republicans hear
ing of the order sent to San Francisco,
called upon the Democratic committee
and stated they would not have enough
torches for their parade, and requested
that the Democratic committee allow
them the use of some, should they arrive
in time, which request was cheerfully
accorded. Unfortunately, they did not
arrive in time for the Republican parade ;
in fact, they have not arrived yet.
The following statement will show tbe
petty nuisances of the same Republicans
who asked the favor of the Democratic
Reports received by the Democratic
committee of arrangements tended to
show that the Pond demonstration
would be an unusually large one, and
the last named committee therefore
made the same request of the Republi
can committee —for a loan of some
torches. The request was grudgingly
granted and tbe torches were promised
to be delivered the next day, but at the
appointed time they were not forthcom
ing, but were promised for the following
day ; these dilatory measures were kept
up until the date of the parade, when the
Democrats' request was absolutely refus
ed. Then the Republicans were offered
for their 500 torches, 25 cents each, the
original cost, or a duplicate order for ihe
same number upon the same Los Ange
les firm who made them, but still they
refused, and so it was that so many
Democrats marched without torches.
What was undoubtedly another piece
of the same kind of work was the fact
that the Whittier and Norwalk bands,
who had been engaged, telegraphed, at
about 0 o'clock of the evening of the pa
rade, that they would not come, no rea
son whatever being given for their

F. H. Faybrick Falls Sixty Feet and
Breaks His Arm.
At four o'clock yesterday afternoon
F. li. Faybrick, an employee of the
Los Angeles Cornice company, while en
gaged in putting the finishing touches to
one of the cornices at the New High
school building on Castelar street, over
balanced himself and fell to the ground
below, a distance of about sixty feet.
Some of his fellow workmen rushed to
his assistance, and found that he had
fortunately fallen on a pile of rubbish,
and had escaped with serious, but not
necessarily fatal injuries. The police
patrol wagon was summoned and in it
Faybrick was conveyed to the receiving
hospital, where Police Surgeon Morri
son attended to him. It was found that
the unfortunate man's left fore-arm was
broken in three places. On removing
his clothing the limb presented a sick
ening spectacle, the flesh being punc
tured by splinters of bone, which pro
truded in several places, causing the in
jured man terrible pain and loss of a
large quantity of blood. His left ankle
was dislocated, and he received a severe
shock to his system, from which it will
take him some time to recover. After
his injured limbs had been set by tbe
surgeon, Faybrick, at his own request,
was removed to his home on Hubbard
In all probability, tbe injured arm
will have to be amputated, but I'r.
Morrison does not intend to perform the
operation except as a last resort.
At a late hour last nightfFaybrick was
reported to be resting comparatively
It is a singular fact that at
nearly every meeting of our
council or board of public works
energetic kicking or protp«t" nirainst
the acceptance of sidev ..'i<- : laid
with cement are presented,
gone on for many months, ar.d slill con
tinues. Perhaps some of it 6 I
parties who simply gain time for pay
ment, but the repatching of large por
tions of blocks by contractors indicate
some occasion for the protests. The rea
son for the poor work was no
doubt due to the strong com
petition among contractors, who bid
down as low as ten centsJfor work under
specifications calling for English Port
land cement. Engineers, contract
ors and architects insist no good
sidewalk can be laid for less than
fourteen or fifteen cents per square foot.
Our council finally concluded to accept
no bids, it is understood, when the price
was less than thirteen cents.
But the amount of sidewalk to be laid
in our city suggests the inquiry, why
send the large sums of money out of our
midst required for Portland cement at
four dollars or more per barrel, when we
have in our midst mines of asphalt,
which can be laid as cheaply as cement
it is stated. Samples of the brea walks
laid many years ago in a primitive way
are still in fai; condition, while the
blockß laid on our business and
residence streets more recently and
by improved methods are smooth,
clean, pleasant to the eye and elastic
to the foot. AYe hear of no complaints
of bad asphalt sidewalk work. In this
connection we desire to call attention to
the Asphalt Paving company of this city.
It is composed of young and energetic
residents of our city, experienced in
their work and using only material and
methods now in use in the east and Eu
rope, and by which hundreds of miles of
paving have been laid. Louis Blanken
horn is president of this company, which
is incorporated and has ample capital.
Other officers or stock-holders are Thos.
B. and Harrington Brown, Capt. A.
F. Mackey, Sutherland Hutton, J. L.
Skinner and others of this city, and

of this company is on honor and to in

at the Clifton house, with his family,
