Sunday we did ourselves "proud"
by going down to Santa Monica.
We found the "City by the Sea" in

the summer sojourner. We struck
that perfect mean between a

We found, also, in Captain Green,
of the Coin I House "click," a
fisherman of uo mean pretensions'.
This American citizen of African
descent had hauled about sixty
beauties of the "briny" out of their

and his cry was "still they come."
With Oliver Twist, though his
basket was bursting, Oreene still

It Is believed that a stock coin

conducted for the public good and
with benillceut views, can be made
to pay. It requires only honest aud

numbers of men in this cily who
can give it both, and they can be
found without a lauteru. 1 lie In

these will be a success and a bless

The handsome advertising wug

acrobats, tight rope performers,

He was very sceptical as to future

and could do hini no good. They

He woul.l walk to the scaffold, did
bravely, ami had no fear of the 1

Ou Sunday a couiile of Greeks
named John Adriauopolo aud 8.
Carlis hired a buggy from Mr. I)u
--puy ostensibly to go to Santa Mon

turned and told Mr. Djp-jy tliat,
instead of carrying out thoir orig
inal intention, he and Adrisnopolo
bad driven out about three miles
on the other side of the river, to
visit a friend, where he had left
his oouipa'Mou; ami that, as lie was
coming into tha city, tits horse had
dropped dead at the X i-t Los An
geles hildge. It has since trans
pired that Adriauopolo, who kept a
fruit stand nt tho corner of First
and Main streets, hud sold out his
establishment, and, to escapo pay
lug his creditors, to whom ho was
largely indebted, had got Carlis to
drive him to Ban Fernondo, to in
tercept the San Francisco train.
This lie succeeded iv doing, as he
look the cars to Sacramento. as
soon as this was learned, Mr. Du
puy hail Carlis arrested; a:id, ap
prising Deputy Frank Baker of the
facts, the latter telegraphed lo the
Chief of Police at Sacramento to
arrest Adi iunopolo as booh as the
train arrived. Yesterday evening
Deputy linker received a telegram
informiug him that the fugitive
was in custody. A dispatch was
then sent to Under Sheriff Row

call for tho prisouer ns he returns
to this city, and bring him down
with him. Carlis is in jail here;
and, as soon its Adriauopolo ar
rives, they will both ha examined
before Judge Peel.
The horse, which was undoubt

drive, was a very line animal
