THE FINAL CONCERT.
A Musical Buccisi aud a Financial Failure.
The mntluce yesterday afternoon
*ud concert last night completed
tlio Philharmonic season. We do
not know tbat we are under obliga
tion to mince matters. In nearly
every detail the musical features
of the series of concerts were ar
tistic and thorough. Musicians
from nearly all parts of Southern
California participated iv the exer
cises. They wero drawn here by a
genuine devotion to a beautiful art,
and they comprised an amount of
musical skill and culture remark
able under the circumstances. Our
own very large local uiusicul con
stituency adopted the idea of a se
ries of general concerts with enthu
siasm. The Horticultural Pavilion
has the area of a large cathedral
and admirable acoustio character
istics. Our poople should have
warmed up to the enterprise en
masse and tliey simply failed to do
so. This is the truth of the matter ar
rayed in the Geurgiu costume of a
shirt collar and a pair of spurs.
(We hate to use that indelicate
phrase, the naked truth.)
The matinee was not extrava
gantly attended yesterday after
noon, nor was Ihe attendance iv
the evening, although much larger,
what it should have been. The
loiiowiug programme was rendered
lust ni : ;i.i, with some transposition
in its order, but iv lull.

7. Soto und Chorus—"Marvellous Work"
This time the full complement of
tbe Los Angeles Guards was on
hand and the Anvil Chorus came
off according to programme.
The moat marked event of tbe
evening was a double encore which
the audienc insisted upon tender
ing to Miss Perry.
If wo bad the space, there are
many features of this charming se
ries of concerts which we would
liko to dwell upon. Wo trust tbat
the next time our Philharmonic
friends exert themselves to ploase
tho public the latter will be in a
more responsive mood than during
tli3 present season.

A Eemarkabls Band-Storm—Tho Railway
Track Ocmr»d With Baad-Tbe- Train De
ayed Fifteen Honra.
Day before yesterday aftoruoou
the out-going Yuma tralu left Los
Augeles on time. Everything
went ou as usual ttnlil it approach
ed Cucatnouga Station. At this
point a sand storm of extraordina
ry violouce was encountered. The
train was soon obliged to stop.
Superintendent Hewitt was at
once communicated with hy tele
graph and men were dispatched
from all quarters to clear the
truck, but utterly without avail.
The train was delayed solus fifteen
hours. When we state that the
rails for a distance of three or four
miles were covered with sand to
depths ranging from one to ihrte
feet the forco of tho wind may be
conjectured. The simoom, or
sirocuo, or whatever it may to
called, cuius whistling through the
U j in Puss as though it were dis
charged from a funnel.
The incisming Yuma train was
delayed for an hour and a hall
through the storm. Some seven
yoars ago a whirlwind poured out
of the C'ajon Pasi which took sub
stantlally the same course as the
wind day before yesterday. The
line of plain traversed by it was
about three miles wide, but it for
tunately stopped right at the edge
of the celebrated Cucamoiiga vine
yard. For much of this width the
soil was shaved off as with a knife,
being carried resistlessly over the
Cacamonga plains. Sand was
pileil to a height of several feet
over the roof of the station of the
old stage company, making a to
tal sand drift of over twenty feet
lilgb. Tbe storm of the other day
