THE BOYS' HOME.
A WORTHY INSTITUFION: WHICH
Some Information About Its Features.
What Has Been Accomplished During
the Year—Satisfactory Results.
The News Boys' home is one of the
charitable institutions of Los Angeles
that is doing a great deal of good. The
home is located in an unpretentious
frame building at No. 319 East First
street. Tart of the lower story is used
as a reading room. The second story
contains the school room, reception
room, dining room and kitchen. The
sleeping apartments are in the third
story and will comfortably accommodate
about twenty boys.
The advisory board is composed of the
following gentlemen: Mayor H. T.
Hazard, G. VV. McClellan, F. VV. Mills,
H. Chandler and Mr. Armour.
The board of trustees are : Mrs. Du
commun, Mrs. C. H. Bosbyshell, Mrs.
A. S. Grovesner, Hobbs.Mrs.
Dr. Sinsabaugh, Mrs. General McDon
ald, Mrs. Cockins, Mrs. Carter, Mrs.
Shinkwin, Mrs. Blythe and Mrs. Wood
The managers are: President, Mrs.
N. A. Stillman Drane; vice-presidents,
Mrs. Colonel Otis,Mrs. Finney and Mrs.
Wiggin; financial secretary, Mrs. C. If-
Bosbyshell; recording secretary, Mrs. F.
E. Bennett; treasurer, Mrs. E. A. For
rester; chairman of health committee,
Mrs. Dr. Hewling; chairman of house
hold committee, Mrs. A. S. Grovesner;
chairman of reading room committee,
Miss Blythe; committee on entertain
ment, Mrs. A. J. Brown and Mrs.
Theae ladies all serve without com
pensation, giving their time and influ
ence willingly to help along the good
cause; only the matron and housekeeper
The home has only been organized for
about a year, and of course matters are
even yet in a somewhat crude state, but
taking into consideration the difficulties
to be overcome at the outset and the
comparatively small amount of money
expended, the board of managers feel
that much has already been accom
The reading room is especially de
voted to the newsboys, aud is becoming
a very popular evening resort for them.
It is a large, well ventilated room, pro
vided with maps, charts, pictures, mag
azines, newspapers, books and games.
Every night from thirty to forty hoys
congregate there. The ladies of the city
interested in the organization provide
musical and literary entertainments
from time to time. These are generally
held on Saturday evenings. Practical
lectures, on various subjects, illustrated
by experiments, are also given in which
the boys seem greatly interested.
A Sabbath school is held from 6 to 7,
in the evening, conducted by a commit
tee of ladies from the different churches.
It is entirely unsectaiian in its instruc
During the past month a night school
has been established, the city board of
education having kindly provided a
teacher —Prof. Lahman—at the expense
of the public school department. This
school is open to all who desire to avail
themselves of its privileges. It is al
ready proving a success, and bids fair to
accomplish much good.
The matron of the home, Mrs. Hilbish
("auntie," as the boys call her), is de
voted to her work. She is a Christian
woman, with a warm heart and motherly
feelings. Under her kind, tirin, judicious
management, there has been a wonder
ful improvement in d'scipline.
The domestic department, under the
charge of Mrs. Neely, is well managed.
The rooms and bedding are scrupulously
clean. The food is plain, but wholesome
and well cooked. Excellent home-made
bread is always found upon the table.
The recent addition of a bath room to
the building has proved very beneficial.
Since January, 1891, forty boys have
been registered as inmates "of the home.
Many of them came poorly clad, ragged
and dirty. As soon as possible they j
were comfortably clothed and employ- i
ment secured for them, thus cultivating '
habits of cleanliness, industry and self- j
It should be understood that the home
is not solely for the benefit of newsboys,
but that any homeless boy who wishes
home comforts for a nominal price is
welcomed there and properly cared for.
Several such boys who are learning
trades and receiving but a few dollars
per week have recently come to the
home. One of the aims of the home is
to find suitable employment for boys
who are willing to work, but are unable
of themselves to find any. •
Of course some of the boys do not ap
preciate the efforts made in their behalf
and return to their old habits of life,
but a majority of them are very grate
ful, working during the day, studying at
night, and willingly pay the nominal
price charged for their board and room.
Six boys have been sent to their
homes since January, thus gladdening
the sad hearts of parents who had per
haps given them up as lost.
There is no doubt but that if those
persons who have so kindly assisted the
home by monthly contributions in
money, or by donations of food, fuel and
clothing, could watch the progress made
and realize the good accomplished in
various directions, they would not re
gret the assistance they have given the
ladies in their good work, but would
rather increase their contributions.
The board of managers wish to extend
through the columns of the Herald an
invitation to any or all of the citizens of
Los Angeles to visit the home and in
spect its workings. Especially would
they be pleased to see those who are so
kindly contributing to its support.
The term —one year—for which quite
a number of the original contributors to
the fund by which the home is support
ed will soon expire, and the managers
hope that they will renew their sub
scriptions, or that other liberal citizens
will take their places, so that the good
work may be continued and the benefits
to the class of homeless boys may be
The children's hop given at the Re
dondo hotel last evening proved a de
lightful affair. It was indeed interest
ing to see some of the tiny little ones
going through the figures of the lancers,
and several figures of the german were
danced. At 8 o'clock the merry little
party assembled in the dining room,
where refreshments were served, the
orchestra discoursing sweet strains the
while. The party consisted of the fol
lowing : Misses Marguerite and Madalon
McConnell, Mildred and Nathalie Mer
nam, Gertrude and Berthey Lawson,
Masters Roy Baker, Van and Francis
Lea, Harold and Stewart McConnell.

By some means Redondo items were
mixed with those from another town in
one of the daily papers this week and a
great deal of sickness was mentioned as
being in this town. The statement
should not be misunderstood, as it can
easily be, for there are no sick persons
in Redondo and the place is remarkably
healthy, indeed so much so that the only
physician had to leave some time ago

A NUMBER OF NEW STORIES AD
VANCED ABOUT THE MYSTERY.
A Man Who Says the Secretary Has Gone
to South America—Detective Smith's
Statements—A Variety of Theories.
The Hanchette mystery is further
complicated by contradictory state
ments. The Express last evening stated
that a reporter had been given valuable
information in connection with the mys
terious disappearance, by a gentleman
most intimately connected with the
missing secretary. He says for a long
time Hanchette has been desirous of
going to South America, and just be
fore his departure for Chicago he inti
mated that if the orange carnival was
not a success, he (Hanehettel might go
One gentleman further stated that a
member ot his family had employed
private detectives in Chicago, and that
they had learned to their satisfaction
that Hanchette went to New York city
from Chicago, passing through Detroit,
Mich., and that he is now en route to
South America. The gentleman who
gave the above information is prob
ably one of Hanchette's closest friends,
and up to the present time refused to
listen to anything that would tend to
cast a reflection upon the actions of
"I am now convinced," said the gen
tleman, "and it may be several years
before we will hear from him, but you
will see I am correct in my statement."
When asked about Hanchette not in
forming his family, the gentleman said:
"I cannot account for it. He was one
of the most devoted husbands, but from
a boy he had the South American fever,
and when the carnival turned out a fail
ure, he was ashamed to return toLLots t
Angeles. lam disgusted with him as I
would be with my own brother, who
would desert a mother or a wife. But
Hanchette was in New York. That I
know, and I am convinced that he has
gone to South America."
The article further states that the
reporter's informant had been told that
two letters had been received here from
Chicago stating that Mr. Hanchette
would arrive here on or about the 10th
inst., but clung to his statement that
Hanchette had gone to New York and
would not return.
Detective Fred Smith, on the other
hand, states that he is satisfied that he
knows just where the missing man is,
why he did not come back and who his
companion is, and he promises some
developments about the matter soon
which will be far from pleasant for a
number of people, and of sensational
interest. What be bases his opinion on
Mr. Smith will not yet state.
Again, those who knew Hanchette the
best Btoutly assert that the mental
aberration theory will be found to be
the explanation of the whole matter.
