THAT PRIZE FIGHT.
Dick Smith Denies That He Was
One of the Principals.
A young gentleman called at the Her
ald office last evening. He stated that
his name was Dick Smith, a student at
the Boyle Heights college, and that it
was not he who was to engage in a tight
with another young gentleman on Sat
urday night. Mr. Smith stated, upon
being interrogated, that Harry Brown
was one of the principals. Tin.- visitor
atgo remarked that the fight was not
about a girl. It is reported, however,
by parties who claim to be on the inside,
that the fight will come off in the near
future, notwithstanding that the police
interfered on Saturday night.

The charge against J. Harney for ob

court. It was alleged that Harney sold
a cart which he had leased from Haw
ley, King & Co. A complaint was sworn
out against Harney and he was charged
with a serious crime, and the case
against him looked black until one of
the employees of Hawley, King & Co.
testified that ho had authorized Harney
to sell the cart, aa the two carts which
he had previously purchased were
enough security for the indebtedness.
This clearly showed that there was no
criminal intent on the part of Harney,
and the case was forthwith dismissed.
The complaint waa issued at the request
of Gillen, who, in conjunction with Ran
dolph, had purchased the cart. No one
knew that by arrangement Harnev had
a right to sell the cart.
A QUEER CASE.
A MATTER WHICH WILL BEAR
A Rich Riverside Man Arrested on a
Criminal Charge and Released in an
Hour — Was the Court Used for the
Purpose of Collecting an Acoount?
One of the too unmeroua cases where
criminal procedure of the courts ia re
sorted to, simply to collect money, oc
curred yesterday morning in Justice
The case was that of K. Rosenthal, a
well-known real-estate dealer of River
side, who, it appears, must be a bit of
a high rolier. The story, as the Hkbald
gets it, is that some little while ago
Rosenthal visited a gambling resort in
the building on the northwest corner of
of First and Spring streets. As is the
case in such places the visitor lost what
he had, and he borrowed money from
Charles Doria, who, it is said, conducted
the place. The amount of the loan
is described as $100. This all happened
three or four months ago, and Dorian
claims that ho could not get the money.
Accordingly he swore to a complaint be
fore Justice Austin charging Rosenthal
with obtaining money under false pre
tenses, and yesterday morning at 0
o'clock Rosenthal was brought into
court. What occurred afterwards is not
exactly known, but in an hour's time
Rosenthal was free. Dorian said he had
received his money.
This matter is one that should be
thoroughly explained—in fact it is
thought that the grand jury would do
well to give it some attention. It may
possibly be all straight, but on the face
of it, the a flair looks crooked. Criminal
procedures were not designed to be a
means of collecting accounts, particu
larly accounts which are of such nature
as not to be legally collectable.
Athletlr Club Grounds.
The new baseball and athletic grounds
of the Los Angeles Athletic club, at the
corner of Alameda and Seventh streets,
will be ready inside of three weeks. The
ground has been plowed up, and work
on the fencing and erection of a grand
stand will be commenced this week. The
grand stand will accommodate about
fifteen hundred people. A Hkkald re
porter was yesterday shown a plan of
the grounds. The entrance to the park
will be near the electric building, and
distant about one hundred and fifty yards
from %%" Arcade depot. The track for
1 the runners and bicyclists will be of the
usual elliptical shape, and one-quarter
of a mile in circumference. The base
ball diamond is to be laid out directly
opposite the grand stand. It is on the
tapis to open on Thanksgiving Day with
a lacrosse match between Riverside and
Los Angeles. The first baseball game
on the new grounds will be played on the

Dr. M. Hilton Williams— Dkar Mb: 1 have

| a statement of mv case and the benefit I have
derived from your treatment, remembering how
■ glad I would have been could I have seeusome
i thing of the kind from a person in the city to
i whom 1 could have referred when I first came
ito Los Angeles from my home in New York
I have been suffering for Beveral years with
i what various phj sicians in theeast pronounced
"chronic ulcerated larvngltis." 1 spent con
siderable time at the Clifton Saniiariuin, and
I employed tho best medical skill I could find,
: all without any permanent benefit, and, a last
! resort, our family physician recommended Los
Angeles. For a time I improved, and then I
1 begun to so backward,and all my formtr symp
-1 toms returned '.
j Through a medical friend 1 was induced to
try your treatment, which I did August 29,
1884 I became very much discouraged at
I limes, but persevered, as I felt almost desperate
I and knew of nothing else to turn to. My throat
i trouble, being aggravated ny a serious stomach
' difficulty, made it very obstinate to deal with,
I but at last, after persevering for a time with the
! nee of your remedies, I consider I am permau
! eiulv cured. If this will be of any value to you,
you are at perfect liberty to use it; also to refer
nnv one to my mother, my husband or myself.
Very truly yours. MIW. J. D. WILEY.

To the many testimonials won by Dr. Wil

list so highly in his favor. For nearly two
years I had been suffering from throat and

; mauy remedies in the meantime, but found
' only" temporary relief. After two months'
: treatment, prescribed by Dr. Williams, my
cough left me altogether, and 1 now have no
pain in my throat or lungs as formerly. I can-
I not speak too bignly of the benefits I have re

worthy of the highest recommendation.

Tuesday, November 10, 1891.
We expect to open oar toy department on or about the 15th of thia month.
We have received two carloads and a half of holiday goods, which have to be
forced into the limited space now occupied by our household furnishing goods,
crockery, tinware, etc. In order to make room for our toye and give us all the
display that ia possible, we have decided to make stupendous cuts in our crock
ery, chinaware, tin and agateware, baskets, woodenware and everything carried
by us in this salesroom. If you have any wants in this department it will pay
you handsomely to call upon* us during this week.
DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT.
The space now occupied by our dress goods department will have to be given
up to our book department at tbe beginning of the coming month. We have
made stupendous reductions in dress goods through this entire season. In fact,
the majority of our goods were sold below cost. Now that we require the room
we are obliged to move our dress goods department to where our draperies are.
Before doing so we desire to cut the stock down as much as possible, and you can
buy the finest ot dress goods almost for a song—less than cost is not anywhere
compared with the price that we will now make our dress goods stock to you.
FLANNELS AND DRAPERIES.
This department will have to be subdivided; the flannels having to go to the
domestic departments and the draperies to our clothing store, in order to make
room for our dress goods, being now overcrowded for shelf room. From this time
forward until the end of the month, you can buy lace curtains, curtain materials
of all kinds, ready made curtains, cornice poles, lambrequins of all kinds, at
prices that will put a move on them and rid ua of at least one-half of onr stock
during the remainder of this month.
Our line is very choice in comforters and blankets, carrying better goods than
we ever carried in our existence, and you can buy these at a price that you paid
heretofore for much inferior goods.
We are obliged to curtail here in order to gain room to accommodate our
flannels. We will give you some thundering values in this department during the
balance of the month —make you carry off as much of our stock as it 1b possible to
unload. We are pressed for room, we are pressed for money, and merchandise
has no value with us. Come in and take it away at your own figures.
This is positively the last month that we will advertise men's clothing. With
the end of this month all our men's clothing will have disappeared. Either we
will dispose of it to our customers, or the remainder that is left will go in a lump
somewhere or to some place. You can buy clothing from us at about one-fourth
its real value is undeniable. We are pretty well broken up in sizes, but if you
are fortunate enough to be fitted, why you will get clothing at prices that you
never will again the balance of your lifetime.
In boys' clothing we are selling wool suits, not satinetteor cottonade, at $1 a
We have an awful lanze stock of boys' and children's clothiug, aud our prices
are in proportion to the first item that we quote you. We are not going to tell
you what this suit is worth ;we will leave it for you to say; all we tell you ia that
it is a wool suit, and you know tbat you pay $2 for satinettes.
i ■ . ■ ■* ' -fit
MEN'S HAT DEPARTMENT.
With the first of the month we bring this department up to the front of our
store, where our neckwear and hosiery now are. We are anxious to dispose of
as much of the present stock as possible, and by that time we will bave an entire
new line of hats coming in for the new class ot trade which we expect to cater to
in the future when our store is altered. There is not a hat department in the
United States that can or will offer you the values of men's and boys' hats that
we are giving. We have done a marvelous business with hats, considering the
way we have been hampered for room, and that our hat department has been in
the dark corner in the rear end of our store. If you want to buy real good hats
for a little money, why come in and see our line.
The business of thia department has advanced because of the quality of goods
kept by us. There is not a shoe in our house that we cannot recommend to yon
for style, fit and wear, and there is not a shoe in our house that we cannot say to
Sou, "If it does not give perfect satisfaction, we are ready to make it good, either
y exchange or refunding the money."
We will sell you Curtis & Wheeler's fine shoes for ladies at $3.60, $4.25, $5
We will sell you a line of tn galls & Son's fine shoes for $2.50, of dongola kid,
with patent leather tips or plain, for which we claim it to be the best shoe iv the
United States for the money.
We can sell you an all leather shoe at $1.50, which is the best shoe for that
In men's shoes, Hanan «St Son's finest work, usually sold at $8 and $0, is on ,
special sale during this week at $0.
Hanan & Son's fine shoes are on sale during this week at $5.
Lilly, Brackett & Co.'s fine shoes are on Bale during this week, at $2.60; a
quality usually sold at $4.
Lilly, Brackett's fine shoes are on sale during the week at $4.25; a quality
that are usually sold at $t>. >
Misses' and children's shoos of line makes in like proportion.
All over our stores, in every department, you will find huge piles of mer
chandise marked out in plain figures at sacrifice prices for the sake of converting
them into money and disposing of an immense and burdensome stock. We are
trying to do all the business that is possible by selling merchandise without re
gard to profit whatsoever. Come in and see each department overflowing with
