The Encino rancho belongs to the Ox
arart estate and the attorneys who
have that estate in charge claim that
Gamier can give no title at all. How
ever, as Gamier has set up a claim,
the attorneys for the Oxarart heirs
have brought suit to quiet title, and it
will be heard on Sept. 10th.

THE CHIEF OF POLICE.
The Coming Man in the Dim,
Now that J. K. Skinner lias been
nagged into resigning his position as
Chief of l'olice, tlie Republicans who
were instrumental in forcing him to
take this step are at a loss to rind a
man who will acceptably fill his place.
The Republicans are short of timber.
Of course they can pick up fellows in
their ranks who would accept the
position. Possibly some two or three
thousand of the faithful stand ready
to walk up to the rack and allow
themselves to be persuaded to be sworn
in. The Republican Council, how
ever, is possessed of some sense. It
-wants to put a man in who will last
longer than two weeks. The following
able and distinguished rustlers in the
Republican ranks are spoken of,
Captain P. M. Darcy, Capt. Tyler,
Capt. Thornton, Doc Dunlap and
numerous otherß. Tlie best man the
Republicans can put in the position is
-James Meredith, the present very
efficient Coroner of this couuty. It is
not probable that Dr. Meredith will
accept the olHce unless it is forced
upon him. In the first place he
is doing very well in tiie
Coroner's office and making some
money. In the second place
Jim lias it in his head to rim for
term and will lay for the
Republican nomination. This brings
the Council to a standstill, but it will
not surprise people very much if Mer
«dith is elected by acclamation and a
party pressure brought to bear upon
him that will make him accept the
If the Council had tiie best interests
<A the city at heart it would disregard
the question of politics and elect
Tom Caddy as Chief, Kvervbody
known that the city has never liad a 1
Chief of JPolice since Cuddy retired.
It is not at all sure, however, that
Cuddy would accept the office. All
know that Cuddy has the police
business down finer than any man in
California. He commenced as a dep
uty zanjero and worked his wav up to
Chtef of Police.
Commodore Haiues of the Western
I it ion Steps Out.
The business community of Los An
geles will regret to learn that Mr. R.
R. Haines, the head of the Western
Union telegraph office in this city has
resigned his position. Of course every
body has a grievance against the tele
graph office as they have with the Post
master, but Commodore Haines has
given universal satisfaction in tlie po
sition of superintendent of the Wes
tern Union office in this city since
1881 and hence the regret. He re
signed because the work was too hard
for him. Business has increased at a
wonderful rate, and the "old man"
wanted a vacation. He wanted to go to
the seaside and recuperate. This re
quest was denied him. The company
for which he worked took it
as a personal insult that he should
think of leaving his post unless lie
was carried away in a coffiu. The
Commodore, however, has sense like
a hired man and he saw that the work
was telling on him to such a degree
that his health was seriously im
paired, and he sent in his resignation.
The following extract from a letter
written by Frank Jaynes, the General
Manager of the Western Union com
pany, will show in what great esteem
the "old man" was held.
" Your letter of the 23d, containing
your resignation, to take effect on the
27th, received. I fully appreciate
your reasons for leaving tiie service.
Personally it is with regret that I ac
cept your resignation, and I have lieen
in ho]>es that arrangements could be
made to make your position easier
and more profitable. You being al
most the last one of the old guard, I
feel in parting with you as lieing left
alone in tbe wilderness."
Mr. E. A. Beardslee of Sacramento
will assume the position of superin
tendent of the Los Angeles office; anil
while he is a clever, pleasant and
competent gentleman, he will have to
do lots of work to fill acceptably the
shoes of the " Ancient Mariner."
THE SANTA MONICA DISASTER.
The Injured Parties all Doing
Well and Recovering Rapidly.
The accident to General Miles and
party as correctly reported in the
Herald yesterday caused much cont
inent. It can now be stated that the
injured parties are doing well and that
iv a few days ali of them will lie out.
Captain Will. Banning was not on the
coach when tho accident occurred and
lie escaped both injury and comment.
One of the horses in the lead was so
badly injured that it died yesterday.
It was the finest horse in the outfit.
Dr. K. D. Wise, who attended the
unfortunate victims of the Santa
Monica, on Tuesday, returned yester
day. He states that treneral Miles,
whose left ankle was fractured, is

Stoneman is also progressing favor

bers of the party.

milE TLItM CATARRH IS APPLIED TO A
X peculiar disorder of the nostril- nnd ad
jacent oarts. which prevails to an alarming
extent, and is productive of very serious
The most prominent and characteristic
feature is v morbid discharge from the head,
Varying In its nature at different times.
In some there is an almost constnut flow
of clear, acrid fluid, hut oftencrnn offensive,
purulent or mueo-purnlont, green ish-vellow
mutter is secreted, which accumulates in
the nostrils or drops Into the throat, neces
sitating its frequent removal hv blowing the
nose or expectoration, nnd dfteu by both
processes. Sometimes patients feel as
though their head was iv a state of rotten
ness, so great is the amount of mutter dis
charged nnd so fetid is its odor. The pa
tient is greatly annoyed by the constant
dropping into the throat of the morbid
matter from the head, and as a recumbent
Eosition naturally favors the How downward
Is rest is frequently disturbed from this
cause. Many sufferers are obliged to lie «ith
the head very much elevated in order to
sleep with some degree ot comfort.
In others v tough, viscid und offensive
phlegm collects behind and above the soft
imbue, in the passage between the throat and
head, adhering to the parts with gluish tenac
ity. Its lodgment embarrasses respiration
nnd creates a sensation of irritation nnd un
easiness in the affected locality, which gives
rise to a constant and almost irresistible de
sire to relieve that discomfort by drawing
the mucus into the throat bo as to eject it liv
the mouth. This practice, popularly known
ns-hawking," is characteristic of catarrh,
and proves as emLarrussing lo the one af
fected as it is disagreeable to those around
Again, the offensive mutter hardens and
deposits itself on the membrane in the shape
of dry, hard concretions, which are dis
charged hv way of the nostrils or throat In
lumps or fragments of a deep green tint. In
some cases these inciiistutions accumulate
to such an extent us to form a regular plug
in the nose, which obstructs breathing and
produce serious discomfort. So (Irmly do
these incrustation I adhere to the point of
attachment thnt their removal usually re
quires the most violent efforts; not unfre
qucutly they have to be torn from the mem
brane. Occasionally a solid past of notable
sine is expelled, on which there are gen. rally
truces of.blood, but in some cases the cast
presents a tubular appearance, being of exact
shape of the nnsnl cavity. This condition is
indicative of ulceration, which, iv time,
may destroy the bony structure of the nose
and produce a subsequent flattening of that
Cases are occasionally met with in which
a thick, viscid, slimy secretion coats the
membrane of the nHsal cavities nud then
putrefies, giving rise to a stench which is
really overpowering, and sufficiently fetid
to poison tiie atmosphere of a whole room;
nud there are others In which all the secre
tions of the membrane are suspended, caus
ing an unpleasant feeling of dryness, heat
and fevonslinoßs In the head and nose—a
condition popularly known as "Dry

cavities of the bones of the forehead and
face, giving rise to a dist.essing sensation of
heavyweight or compression over the fore
head, especially ill the region above and be
tween the eyes, and ton feeling ol fulness,

the upper part of the throat, above and be
hind the soft palate. Sometimes there is
pain obstinately fixed in some particular
iiurt, ns in the temple, on tlie top of the
head, nt the bnck of the neck, or behind the
orbit.-, nnd, occasionally, pain manifest!
itself iv the face of so severe a character
that it is frequently mistaken for neuralgia.
The breath Is always tainted, aud nt limes
assumes an exceeding fetid and sickening
odor. In some cases it becomes so revolt
ingly offensive as to render the sufferer nn
object of disgust to himself ns well us to
The nasal membrane is thickened and
contested, causing the nose to be stopped up,
Sometimes on one side, sometimes on tbe
other, and often on both, giving rise to a
disagreeable, stuffy sensation in the head,
and occasioning violent and prolonged
paroxysms of sneezing.
The voice Is weak, indistinct and huskr.
or of a nusul character, displaying a sort of
miffing quality. Oftentimes there is a con
tinuous hoarseness and discordance. There
is also v sense of irritation In the part,
und frequent attempts to clear the throat of
phlegm, producing the sound "hem," more
or less forcibly. In some cases patients
Complain of an uncomfortable feeling of
fullness, or a choky sensation in the throat,
nnd in others of a distressing and almost
constant dryness, for the temporary relief of
which they have to swallow frequently,
others; again, speak of a constant bad or
nauseous taste in the mouth or throat.
The stomach generally suffers more or less
nnd becomes weak and Irritable: the appe
tite is capricious and nearly always had In
the morning. The patient is languid, unable
to perform mental or physlcul labor with
the usual facility, is nervous, depressed in
spirits, at times fearful, timid, agitated and
inclined to drowsiness and sleep, the mem
ory weakened and permanent impairment
The mucous membrane soon becomes
morbidly sensitive to unfavorable influ
ences, and In spite of the utmost care be
comes affected from the slightest causes, so
that nt last a breath of wiud upou the lining
of the nose or throat becomes productive of
a cold, and gives rise to serious disturbances
of the respiratory organs. Thus the patient
is subject to frequent and repented colds,
each attack aggravating the disease by giv
ing it n new impulse and involving a larger
extent of surface than its predecessor. In
this miinnor the difficulty spreads from or
gan to organ, invading the throat, larnyx,
trachea and bronchial tubes, until, en-
Oroaohlng further and further, it reaches
the tiner rainilicatioUß of the bronchi, wheu
but n slight Impulse Is required to send it to
the lungs. Catarrh may, and often does,
affect other organs in the body, especially
those contain ug n mucous niembraue, such
ns the stomach, bowels, kidneys, etc.
By the employment of proper inhalations
in the form of medicated vapor (not steam
or spray) we nre able to produce immediate
and direct action upon the discensed surface
in the pharynx and nasal passages, for air
will find its way into the most remote and
intricnlc cnvltics, where It Is utterly impos
sible to make fluid applications. By these
means every case can be cured.
Persons desiring treatment by this system
nf practice can use the remedy ut home us
well ns nt our ollice, und which will cause
no inconvenience or hindrance to business
I have seen so many of these cases cured
that I do not consider uny case hopeless un
less the dlsense bus advanced to the chest
nnd that both lungs are seriously involved.
Even then the inhalations aid us in dis
solving the mucus and in contracting and
healing the cavities, which nothing else can
do with the same success. The very best
references from those already cured.
Those who desire to consult with me in
regard to their osaas had better call at the
office for consultation and examination,
hut, if Impossible to do so, can write for a
copy of my Medical Treatise, containing a
list of questions. Address
