A Pico House Seance.
About fifty ladies nud gentle
men assembled, by invitation, in
the reading room of the Pico
House, last night, to wituess a pri
vate performance of Pr"f. Mon
trose, tbe lirst of whose public ex
hibitions takes place ln Turnverein
Hall to-nigltt. In tbe absence of a
cabinet, tlie Professor availed hini
selfof a small room in the rear of
the reading room. The coinmuni
caling door was left open, and n
blanket, with a slit in (he middle,
secured the performer the necessa
ry privacy. A chair was placed in
the center of this room. It was
tacked to the floor and the tacks
were thoroughly covered with
sealing wax, so tbat any violent
wrench would, of course, break the
Two gentlemen of the audience,
the Messrs. Walter Moore and Hall
were appointed to tie Professor
Montrose to this seat witli a thin
but strong cord. On one of his
arms was an iron ring and on his
wrists were a pair of approved
patent handcuffs, borrowed for the
purpose from Sheriff Alexander.
Handcuffs, ring and all, his hands
were tieil squarely and firmly to
the front rung of the chair, the
committee stepped out, the curtain
was dropped and the lights were
lowered iv the outer apartment.
Five seconds had hardly elapsed
wheu spirit hands were observed
above the curtain nnd through the
slit iv tiie blanket, bells were rung
and a harmonicon was played. The
committee was then called iv, and
Mr. Hall was requested by the
Professor to tako hold of his hand.
In a moment more, Montrose
called for the light; and, when
Walter Moore entered, Hall's
hand was still iv the Professor's,
but the iron ring was on Hall's
arm, instead of the Professor's, on
which it hail originally been.
We don't propose to follow the
seance In detail. Spirit fao<*s were
shown, the harmonicon gave forth
very good music, repeated inspec
tions wero made and Montrose
stood the test capitally, in every
case. He emerged, at the end, with
the handcuffs on and removed
them, with a dexterous manipula
tion, lv the presence of tbe audi
ence. Ho claims that the string
test to which he subjects himself is
infinitely more difficult than the
ropes which are commonly em
ployed and asserts, besides, that lie
is the only living person who sub
mits to this extreme ordeal. Iv all
fairness we aro obliged to say that
Montrose does his business quite as
skilfully as BaldwiD, although he
is by no means as good a talker as
the Intter. Our people will iiave
an opportunity of forming their
own opinions at Turn-Verein Hall

men of Los Angeles county do
hereby tender to their comrades in
other portions of the country, par
ticularly in Han Francisco, their
sympathies in their struggling ef
forts to preserve their freedom and
manhood against the encroach
ments of combined capital; and
that we pledge ourselves, individ
ually, und as a body, to co-operate
witli them by all constitutional
means iv our power, to prevent the
further continuance of coolie labor
in this State.
2J. Resolved, That we moat em
phatically denounce as tyrannical,
and in direct opposition to the spir
it of our free institutions, any at
tempt to curtail or abridge the free
dom of speech in the discussion of

tiou of Mayor Bryant, of San Fran
cisco, in dispersing and otherwise
arbitrarily interfering with the
quiet assemblage of the working
men of that pU'-e, was not only an
attempt to instigate t oreacb of
the peace, but was au c-, idence that
no opportunity is lost by public
officers to prove their subservience
4th. Resolved, That the passage
of the "Gag-Law" by our Legisla
ture is in direct opposition to tbe
principles of a free Government,
and that all members voting for it
are unworthy of being the repre

deserving of the contempt of all

all friends of tho labor movement
the necessity of organization; and

The Trouble Among the Spirits.
The remarkable card iv this even
iug's Express calls me again into
print, to vindicate my character
from the imputations sought to be
cast upon it. As I have already
answered most of the misstate
ments contained therein further
discussion of tbem would be a use
less waste of words. I again repeat
that it was ouly after the most ur
gent solicitation ou tbe part of
Messrs. Garey and Crow tbat my
agent, Mr. Wobken,consented that
I should give the seance at Garey's
bouse; tbat I did submit to tests
which these gentlemen would never
have required of one of their own
mediums; and that I successfully
performed all that I said I would.
Regarding the sourrilons notice
which the brave Committee extract
from tbe Ventura Signal, I submit
the following telegrams, for tbe
genuineness of which I refer the
public to tbe office of the Western
Union Telegraph Company:

Sheriff Stone, San Buenaventu
ra:—Did you get your handcuffs?
San Buenaventura, Jan. 25.
Edward Wobkeu:—Yes, I did.
C. D. Bonstel,
In explanation, I would state, as
probably many of your readers
know, tbat Mr. Browu, the hotel
proprietor, Is also owner of the hall
in which my exhibition was giveu.
Now, in regard to my $1,000 chal
lenge, it Is still open, and I defy
any Spiritualist to accept it. If
my tricks are only those ot a sec
ond-class juggler, lv re is a splendid
opportunity for a Brst-clasa "me
dium" to get a start in life by per
forming a trick (" trick " is the
word) which I cannot duplicate
without the aid of spirits.
In conclusion, I hereby agree
that ln the event of my failing to
perform all tbat I promise at my
exhibition to-night, I will (nrfe't
the entire proceeds for the bt
of Buch charitable institutic
the audience may select.

worse and becoming unable to attend to
my business, 1 returned home and com

health. 1 consulted physicians and
tried many remedies, but obtained no
help and dally g. ew worse. 1 had a ter
rible cough aud raised a good deal ol
blood. I had profuse night sweatu and
severe pain ln my side. 1 continued ln
ih is state for months,and became so weak
that It was with great difficulty I could
walk, wheu I was advised to try W Utah's
Balsam op Wild Chjckky, and, to

edy had arrested tbe Disease. I contin
ued to use the Balsam to the extent of Aye

no difficulty ofthe lungs. 1 believe the
Balsam saved tnylifeand I shall overbold
It ln high estimation.
