A Hbbald reporter ran across Col. L.
P. Crane, formerly of Chicago, in the
corridor of tho Hollenheca! hotel yester
day afternoon. After the usual greet
ings the two sat down to enjoy the fra
grance of their Havanas, and here are
Some of tbe things the colonel ejacu
lated at the scribe between puffs:
•'I hear, colonel, you are here in the
interest of some eastern capitalists, and
have several barrels on hand to be
"Well, yes, directly and indirectly,
but I find some peculiar conditions in
regard to the prices of property. They
se-.-rn to be neither solid nor uniform.
This want of stability creates an uncer
tainty iv the minds of would-be pur
caeers. For instance, a piece of ranch
property in the immediate of
Los Angeles was recently inspected with
a view of purchase by an eastern syndi
cate, and a price of $300,000 was made
on the same. As the bargain was about
to be closed the price was suddenly
raised to $320,000. This is a grave mis
take, and tends todishearten the would
be purchasers. It seems to ms that if
the people in this immediate vicinity
wish to sell their properties they should
fix a price and adhere to it."
"What do you and your friends think
of Southern California as a field for in
"Well, sir; it seems to have many ad
vantages not possessed by any other
amount of given territory in the United
States. It seems to me, after a careful
consideration, extending over six years
of visits to this section, that, it is the
natural sanitarium for tbe American na
tion. One has to go but a very short
way in the investigation ol the health
of the eastern states, and their monied
accumulations, to find thousands of men
who have amassed fortunes; and, in do
ing so, have become weary in mind and
body, and who are looking for a place of
rest in Houthern California. But they
expect reasonable encouragement from
the people here. And for the want of
their encouragement millions of capital
has been withheld, If your leading
men and bankers wiil wake up to a re
alization of the situation, and lend their
assistance, I predict that the immediate
future of Houthern California will far ex
ceed the hopes of the most sanguine.
You have abundance of water without
any definite plan for its development.
There ie practically an unlimited amount
of capital waiting for investment in this
direction, if acreage property can only
be obtained at reasonable prices, based
upon tbe competency of tbe land to pay

A NEW ENTERPRISE.
A Plnnt for Testing <>m by the New
An enterprise of no small magnitude
has jnst been started which will be of
vast importance to the mines and min
ers of Southern California in particular.
Messrs. L. K. Aubury, W. H. Anbury
and Wade Brcß. have now in operation a
testing plant for the treatment of refrac
tory gob! ores and tailings by the Im
proved McArthnr Forrest Cyanide pro
The Aubury brothers have had full
and practical experience with the same
and have worked it from its first intro
dncton into the United States, and
hpve fully demonstrated on the ores of
Arizona what could be done with tbe
process. They make no claim to suc
cessfully treat any and every oie, but
maintain that on most of the gold ores
common to California, to extract a inucb
higher percentage of the precious metals
than is accomplished by present milling
methods, extracting in many instances
as high as 95 per cent, at a compara
tively small cost as compared with other
methods now in vogue. Tbe purposes
of this teeting plant are to first take a
100-pound sample of ore or tailings, or
less, aud make a practical working test,
aud, if results are satisfactory, they are
prepared to put in works of any magni
tude and make terms for treatment with
mine or mill ownerß,
This industry, when once in operation,
will open up hundreds of mince which
are.now idle for want of a proper method
of treatment of their ores. The present
method of mill amalgamation fails to
extract the fine or flour gold, which
goes off in suspension in tha water. It
aleo fails in the extraction of gold from
iron pyrites, sulphides and other bases.
With this improved method of treat

overcome. The process requires to be

THE NEVADA SOUTHERN ROAD.
Mr. James Campbell's Return
from a Trip Over the Line.
It Will Open a Marvelously Rich Mm
A Well Built Road Now Completed to
the New York District—Freeao
Looking to I, (is Angelea for
James Campbell, tbe railroad bnilder
of Southern California, returned yester
day from the Needles, after spending
two months on the line of the Nevada
Southern railroad —the little road which
is being pushed northward from Qoff
station, on the Atlantic and Pacific rail
Mr. Campbell etates that President
Blake and Vioe-President Scofield of the
new road have completed the line to the
New York mining district, having 26
miles of well built road now in opera
tion. The mining region tbey are open
ing to traffic, Mr. Uampbell states, is
second to none ever discovered before,
aud promises to even surpass the great
bonaura mines of the past.
The projectors of this line are men of
capital, enterprise and push, and there
is no doubt but what they will continue
through the entire mineral belt between
the Atlantic aud Pacific railroad and the
Union Pacific in Utah, which will give
the entire traffic to this coal, iron and
precious metal found on that line.
Mr. Campbell is here on railroad busi
ness, and shortly after tbe first of June
will go to Bait Lake City.
FRESNO TO LOS A NOBLES.
The wonderful development of the
Ban Joaquin valley is attracting the at
tention of people in every section of the
state, and the certainty that the trade
of this valley alone will make any city
wealthy that receives it, will secure the
much needed railroad competion in a
short time. Just now an effort is being
made to arouse the business men of
San Francisco to the importance of sub
scribing $1,000,000 towards building a
road from Stockton to Bakerefield. It
is to be hoped that the money will be
forthcoming, but if the traffic associa
tion bave to abandon the scheme then
we must look to Los Angeles for assist
ance. Tbe southern metropolis is filled
with enterprising aud far-sighted busi
ness men, and it would be an easy mat
ter to get tbem interested in a proposi
tion to bnild a road, say from Fresno to
Los Angeles. Commenting upon a for
mer article on this subject in the Times,
tiie Fresno Expositor says:
The idea set out by the Visalia Times
of building a railroad from some point
in the San Joaquin valley to Los Angeles
iustead of Stockton, to connect with
deep water then c by steamboat orotber
wise, is a new proposition and not a bad
one. If the people of San Francisco ex
pect the bulk of the large amount of
money absolutely necessary to carry for
ward the proposed Stockton, Fresno and
Bakerefield railroad to a point, when the
balance necessary to complete and put it
in operation can be assured, to be sub
scribed by the inhabitants of the sev
eral counties along tbe line, tbey are
reckoning without their boat.
San Fr.inciaco needa the trade of the
San Joaquin valley a great deal more
th n we need San Franciaco. The trouble
with that siluriaa city ia, and has been
for a great many yeare, that ahe expecta
all producing centers on the coast to be
ar an expense iv nn umnti „» ...,numg
highways to tbe peninsula on which she
sits, like a sedentary apple woman with
ample lap ready to receive all that ie
dumped therein. Thie slothful habit has
become chronic, and notwithstanding
she has lost nearly all tbe trade north of
Red Bluff and south of BakersSeld she
etill is sitting, still is sitting, and appar
ently will move again nevermore.
Meantime Los Angeles sees an oppor
tunity to reach out and get the immense
trade of tbe San Joaquin valley, and un
less San Francisco bestirs herself tbe
chance the proposed railroad offers for
securing this trade for all time to come
will have passed. With tbe advantages
Loa Angeles now possesses for cheap
transportation, it may well be a question
worthy olserioua consideration whether
we had not better agitate tbe building of
a railroad, say from Fresno southward
instead of toward the Golden Gate.
WILL BE APPEALED.
The Bentley Case to Be Appealed Over
Judge Sin!tli's Baling.
On motion of Henry T. Uage, recently
associated with the prosecution in the
Henry Bentley murder case, Judge
Smith allowed them 30 days' time
within whicb to prepare and present
a draft of a bill of exceptiona to be used
on appeal, from the order of the court
setting aside the verdict of the jury of
guilty, and granting Bentley a new trial.
June 17th was fixed for tbe time of set
tlement of the bill of exceptions.
At the noon hour J. A. Anderson, jr ,
counsel for the defense, made a motion
before the court asking that Bentley's
of $10,000 be reduced to $5000. Judge
Smith denied the motion, saying that at
the present titae he wonld make no
change in the order heretofore made.
It was learned during the afternoon
that there is very little doubt now that
the prosecution will take the appeal to
the supreme court, and that they feel
confident that they will be able to re
verse Judge Smith in his order setting
aside the verdict and granting a new
trial to tbe defendant.
Bentley still does not seem anxious
to get out of jail, and no further at
tempts are being made at present to
pi-cure the the $10,000 bail required by

The defendant's cross-examination
was reanmed upon the convening of

longed. He stuck to hia story that he
did not poll his revolver after he and
Burton had reached Second atreet from
the cigar stand and poker room where
the row began, until Burton drew his
revolver and tried several times to shoot
it at him.
The argumenta in the case lasted until
about 3 30 o'clock, Mr. Shinn making
an eloqnent appeal for hia client, and
Mr. Dnpuy combatting his theories of
the case with much force.
The jury waa ont six minutes, when
they returned with a verdict of not
guilty. Holliday'a joy over the reeult
waa marked, and he waa warmly con
gratulated by hia associates and friends.

WHY THE BANKS FAILED.
I. W. BELLtIAN'a EXPLANATION OP
The Notable Banker Expresses Hia
View* on the Financial Failure!
Which Have Occurred Re
cently in Many Oltlea.
The Ban Francisco Examiner of the
14th printed the following interesting
article from the pen of I. W. Hellman:
It is impossible to assign any general
canse for the bank failures that have
been occurring all over the world. Al
most every group of failures is due to
some special individual cause. There is
no connection between the collapse of
the London banks and tbe Chicago or
New York suspensions. No more is
there a connection between the Chicago
failures and that of the Banta Clara
bank. This last is merely a sporadic
case of rottenness, and is not to be traced
to any industrial crisis or peculiar con
dition of the money martlet.
There ie of course a world-wide strin
gency just now. It is not severe enough
to materially effect the bus ness of the
more prominent and solid institutions,
bur. it iB enough to crowd the weaker
banks to the wall. Among all these
failures I have not noticed one of a first
Now as to the cause of tbe failures.
The London breakdowns are traceable
directly to the colianso ■>!
Seven banks in Australia suspended.
Their deposits aggregated probably
£30,000,000 ($150,000,000), a, great part
of which was English money. Over
epeculation in land caused the Austral
ian troubles. Tbe banks find them
selves with securities npon which tbey
cannot realize and they naturally can
not meet the demands made upon then.
There aie some good banks over there,
and in tbe wild panic resulting Irom the
iai ure of other banks there ia something
oi a run made upon them. They call on
the English hanks, which largely bold
their secnrities, and tbe stringency in
Over-speculation aleo caused this
stringency in New York, and this has
probably extended aa far as Chicago.
Speculation in industrials is mainly re
sponsible. For illustration of what I
i., let us suppose there are 20 dis
tilleries in California whose combined
worth at a fair estimate is $1,250,000.
Now, suppose these distilleries combine
and issue stock as such trusts usually do
on a basis of $5,000 000. For a time the
trust ia aucceasful. By limiting the
production and thus keepingup the rate
they maintain the Btock at a hieh valua
tion. They pay a large dividend on
$5,000,000 and the stock sells, say at $95
per share. Then something happens,
hard times or competition, and the stock
begins to go down to 90, to 80. to 70, to
60, to 50, to 40. to 30.
There ie the shrinkage. By the time
tbe stock has reached its actnal value
all the trust people bave Bold out.
The public which nae been let in at
tbe top figures has loel hoavily. There
ia a tightness of m .v / in consequence,
a call on the banks and the unaecure
ones go under. There Is nothing new
in tbe condition, and there is nothing
to indicate that tbe shrinkage will be
come acnte or dangerous
So far no San Francisco bank" baa
felt appreciably tbe pressure that has
broken the Eis tern institutions, and
as our banks here are easy, secure and
conaervative, San Franciscans are hardly
likely to have any greater interest in
these manifeetations of stringency than
that of mere spectators.

Mr. Hirai announced his subject, The

touched upon the accomplishments of
the women, their customs and manners
and especially their household arrange

a system of education in Japan and not
on a moneyed basis as in this country.
The artistic arrangement of flowers,
which ie almost a science, also received
much attention from the speaker.

of delicate gray crepe embroidered with
sliver. Around the waist was tied an
immense black eatin sash or obi—this
was at least four yards long.
There was another beautiful robe of
old gold lined with scarlet. Every class

I CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
Wiggins Writes More About the Fair—
The secretary of Die chamber of com
merce has received a letter from Mr.
Frank Wigginr., the superintendent of
the Los Angelee county exhibit at the
world's fair, Chicago. Mr. Wiggins
always writes what he sees and what be
thinks. His present communication is
none the lesa marked in these respects.
Mitch of the letter is of a personal na
tnre, but the following will nerhaps be
of some interest to the public:
"Tne crowds so far have been very
sn. -il and the unfinished condition of
every feature on the grounds will have
tbe >tl ct to keep the people away at

ifornia is keeping np ncr end of the show
in the horticultural building very credit
ably and is visited by from 4000 to 8000
people daily. We have made the beet
citrus exhibit in our power with the
material sent to us. All the counties of
Southern California have a representa

at large is being advertieed by them, as
Fresnr and Placer counties are the only
localities outside of our district that bave
attempted to assist ue in making the dis
play and they are only occupying about
10 square feet each.
"Several of tbe Los Angeles people

have all complimented us on the work
we have done in thia department. The
California building is gradually getting

it haa been a mistake in placing it in

Did we do business ? Well, I guess! We | j
are one of the way up big Clothing stores of I 1
this town. Have you seen our enlarged |*|
salesroom? NOTHING FINER. Our M
store is on Main street, corner Requena. Our |J
rent is low. A clothier on Spring street, Wm
with a store like ours, would have to pay i f
$1000 per month; our rent is less than one
quarter of that sum. The reason of the dif- I 3
ference in rents between Main street and ||
Spring street is because merchants are afraid i |
to scatter out. They want to be in the surg- j
ing crowd; they are afraid to rely on their j
prices alone for trade. They pay big for
their good locations, and YOU PAY THEM
BACK in the price of their goods.
