GEN. CLARKSON IN THE CITY.
The Noted Republican Warmly
Greeted.

ant Grueling—lncidents of
His Reception.
Yeaterday afternoon at 1:40 o'clock
there arrived in thia city from Santa
Barbara one of the moat "widely-known
Republicans in the country, and who
registered at the Weetminster hotel
Bitnply as J. S. Clarkson of lowa.
His arrival was not signalized by any
special or elaborate reception, but a
number of tbe leading local Republicans
and lowa people welcomed him to Los
In the morning Hervey Lindley and
Judge V.. H. Lamme proceeded to Sau
gus, expecting to meet the distinguished
Republican on the incoming San Fran
cisco train, but when it arrived they
discovered that Mr. Clarfcson wbb not
on board, and so returned to tbe city.
Upon tbe arrival of the Santa Barbara
train at the San Fernando depot in Los
Arigeleß the cars were boarded by Dr.
Cochran, Dr. Maynard and Judge
Lamme, who paid their respects to Gen
eral Olarkson. At the Arcade depot
they were met by another committee,
composed of some of the members of
the Union league and some lowans.
Tbis committee was as follows: Hon.
B. F. Allen, Hon. J. Q. Tufts. Col. A. B.
Neidig, John Beckwith, F. J. Oressey,
S. V. Lants, C. L. Byam.
The party was escorted to the West
minster hotel and were at once shown
to their apartments.
Besides General Clarkson his party
consists of Major Isaac Trumbo of San
Francisco, a prominent California Re
publican, Mr. Clarkson's son, C. F.
Clarkson, a member of the senior class
of Harvard, and Mr. Wm. E. Hills, a
young lawyer of New York.
After lunch General Clarkson held an
informal levee nntil late in the after
noon. His apartments were crowded
continually by personal friends, prom
inent Republicans and a goodly number
of lowans. To all General Clarkson gave
a hearty welcome. He is not unlike tbe
political cartoons wherein he is pictured,
garbed as the chief and blood-thirsty
herdsman; the only exception,however,
being tbat hia features aro not so feroci
ous as pictured. He is rather a short
man and is stout. He appears to
be enjoying excellent health. The
most noticable characteristic of
the man is his wide-awake air
and hiß general alertness npon all top
ics. There is something decisive about
him which immediately impresses those
about him that he understands what be
is about and proposes to sea it through.
His manners are those of a western
man, hia conversation is easy and his
general'demeanor is perfectly natural.
A Herald reporter called upon Gen
eral Clarkson at the Westminster hotel
in the afternoon but found him busily
engaged in receiving callers. He ex
pressed himself ac being well pleased
with bis trip and thia section thus far.
"I am charmed with your country.
This being my first visit to Southern
California. I have been in the northern
part of the state several times and had
always thought tnat I would prefer to
visit the aouthern section during tbe
, winter. However, when I found myself
in San Franciaco this time, I decided to
come on and take a ahort view of the
country. It ia my desire this
section and devote more tirno to .tho
"To eastern persons it is certainly a
hot house wonder. When corn and
orange blossoms are Eeen flourishing
Bide by side, and where the lemon and
fig and all of your other fruits thrive, it
certainly shows a country with many
rones.
"I am traveling entirely for my own
private recreation. The impression
that prevails that lam touring ror tbe
purpose of forming Republican cluba or
working in politics ia incorrect. lam
no longer president of the Republican
national committee, and my preaent
trip ia in no wiae connected with its in
terests."
In speaking of national affairs General
Clarkson etated that at present the
Democratic party had no definite pro
gramme. President Cleveland thought
tbat he bad, but did not know whether
it would be followed by congreee. The
silver men insist upon a satisfactory
substitute in case of the repeal of Uie
Sherman silver act, but it is doubtful,
however, if the extreme silver men can
advance any proposition that will be
passed. The general desire is to get
bullion into circulation, and tbe plan
may comprehend that followed by the
French in withdrawing bills and making
an issue of email ailver coin below 20
franco, and in the case of this country
about $5.
The $5 plan would add about $200,
--000,000 to the circulation. Silver ia not
a western question, but is one that
affects the whole country. However,
the tariff has had more to do witn the
present general depression than silver.
The future ia full of hope for the Repub
lican party.
Mr. Clarkson, however, thought that
now waa the time to refrain from giving
any extended expression upon national
affaire.
Shortly after 4 o'clock the party were
driven about the city by Dr. Cochran
and Judge Gordon.
THE RECEPTION.
In the evening General Clarkson wae
entertained by tbe Union League, tbe
principal Republican organization of
the county.
The large assembly room was decor
ated with flagß and palm leaves. • Over
the back of tbe platform waa arranged
the national colore in excellent design,
while tbe front of tbe stage wbb hidden
with a profusion of potted plants.
The room waa crowded with members
of the organization and its guests, the
gathering comprizing the representative
Republicans of tbe city.
Shortly after 8 o'clock, Judge M. T.
Owens, who presided, introduced in a
few remarks tbe gueet of tbe evening,
General Clarkaon. He was warmly re
ceived and proceeded to address the au
dience. _ He did not enter into any de
tailed discussion of the varioua issues,
but gave a brief, running talk; highly
laudatory to the Republican party and
Itrongly against the administration.
He first paid a high tribute to Cali
fornia and to ita people, both lor their
love of their atate and for their love oi
country. In referring to tbe sentiments
of James G. Blame towarda this atate
the apeaker deacribed them as being of
the most kindly charaoter. When the
trouble with Chile arose Mr. Blame's
.first thought was for tbe safety of San
Francisco and the Pacitic coaat. It bad
long been Mr. Blame's wiab daring hia
latter yeara to viait thia section.
Referring to the present condition of
the country General Clarkaon said that
tbe cauae of all the abutting down of
factoriea, cloaing of mines, panica in
banka and general demoralization of
trade waa due to 'uncertain knowl
edge rb to wbat action the Democrats
would take towards the tariff and other
vital issues.
The only way to relieve the present
demoralization waa to return tbe Repub
lican party to power In 180(3, and a good
move towarda this would be for Oaiifor
nianß to vote together and send a solid
Republican delegation to congress next
year. The speaker thought that con
servative Democratß would also vote
with tbe Republicans in reatoring the
protective tarl 11° and relieving the prea
ent poor condition of the country.
At the conclusion of General Clark
son's remarks he was heartily applauded,
and, upon motion of Dr. MacGowan, the
audience arose and gave him three
cheers.
Judge Owene then called npon Mr.
James McLachlan, as one of the young
Republicans, to speak. Mr. McLachlan
delivered a few remarks scoring the
Democratic and extolling the Republican
party.
Mr. J. A. Donnell was called for as
one of the old Republicans. - He spoke
for a few minutes.
A Bhort flowery talk by Major Isaac
Trumbo of San Francisco followed, and
General Clarkson's party closed the
speech making of tbe evening. The
meeting then resolvotj itself into an in
formal gathering, the varioua gentle
men present being introduced to Gen
eral Clarkson. Refreshments, were alao
served.
, Today Dr. Cochran and a number of
invited frienda will eacort the party over
Prof. Lowe'a mountain railroad to Hotel
Rubio, returning to Pasadena in the
afternoon, and tomorrow the committee
of lowans will take the party on a trip to
Santa Monica and the Soldiers' home,
and poßaibly to Redondo.
THE CITY BANK.

FIRST RtSPORT YHBTKBDAY.
He Show* a Not Very nappy Condition
or Matters— M r. Chlldre** Ha* Done
All ln Hl* lii iv c r to Make
the. Depositors Secure.
Mr. Otto Brodtbeek, receiver of The
City bank, filed his preliminary report
late last evening. It is accompanied by
schedules giving aH details as to each
item of assets and liabilitiea. The re
port ia not intended us an appraisment
of tbe assets, but in all cases the receiver
baa indicated the value of the securities
where his information justifies it. The
report aleo containa a Hat of property
which has been conveyed to the receiver
by Mr. Childreaa and others connected
with the bank aa additional security.
The total assets are placed at $263,
--524.21 of which amount $172,111.14 are
claesed as worthless or donbtfnl. To
secure this last amount the property
conveyed to the receiver may realize in
two or three years time $80,000. Tbe
remainder of the assets, claesed as good
or not classed, amounta to $91,413.
It is evident that under the moat fa
vorable circumatancea nothing more
than claims oi depositors can be paid,
and that result will depend largely upon
the expected advance in the priceof real
estate iv this and San Diegocounties, as
also upon tha result fjnf \tigation in
which the title to'some ol the property

Friday night a number of Loa Angelea
high rollers, who not only are leaders in
sporting circles but also in the political
world and prominent in the Seventh
ward, and who have made and unmade
many public officiate, concluded that
they would go to Santa Monica and en
joy the ocean ozone (that ia what they
call it there). After visiting their
frienda, luxuriating in the enrf and par
taking of one of Eckert & Hopf's fish
dinners they went to tbe beach and
spun yarns about politica, etc., until
the music of the waves had no further
charms for them and they concluded to
retire. They hied them to the Jackeon
house, concluding that only tbe best was
good enough lor them, and finally suc
ceeded in reaching tbe office, which was
vacant, tbe night clerk evidently having
left duty to Bee hia beat girl. Not find,
ing anyone, they rang the fire alarm,
which speedily brought the entire
household* to the office, and
they presented the appearance,
of the famous Mother (loose
melody, some in rage, aome with bags
and some with velvet gowns.
There was Sheriff-Morpby of Phoenix
with his Little one in his arm and hie
family cloee behind. There was Harry

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 23, 1893.
AMONG THE CHAUTAUQUANS.
Yesterday's Session of the
School at Long Beach.
The Addresses and Music Found to
Be Very Attractive.
The Cooking School—Nr. Sillier* I,re
turn-Lent Kvenlng'a Concert—A
Number or Religious Service*
Arranged ror Today.
Tbe Chautauquana at Long Beacb and
the many visitors there enjoyed one of
the best programme's yesterday that has
been given during the assembly. A par-,
ticuiarly interesting and instructive ses
sion was held when tbe star entertainers
of the assembly took part. Tbe attend
ance is gradually increasing.
HORNING SESSION.
The morning session was opened witb
devotional services, led by the Rev. A.
J. Frost. At 9 o'clock the normal Bible
class resumed its studies, under the
direction of Dr. Charles Kent. Tbe sub
ject was Micah, the Countryman. Dr.
Kent is winning much admiration for
bis ability in the teaching of the
scriptures.
The remainder of the morning was
taken np by the various departments,
which met in their respective places,
pursuing the studies taken up on tbe
opening day.
TUB COOKERY SCHOOL.
Probably tbe most enthusiastic, and
one of the most important departments
of the assembly is the school of cookery.
It is indeed an attractive spectacle to
witness the students who so earnestly
endeavor to learn the mysteries of the
culinary art as they should be learned.
The menus prepared under the direction
of Mies Whlttaker are well worthy of
emulation in many a household. The
menu to be prepared tomorrow consists
of Victoria cornbread, apple rolls, cold
meat patties, rough puff pastry, "eggs'
nest," and other palatable dishes. This
menu will be the perfect delight of the
40 eager culinary students.
The other departments have progres
sed equally well under their very able
leaders. An especial feature of these is
the well-drilled chorus in charge of 0.
Stewart Taylor. The music is unexcel
led.
MR. MILLER'S LECTURE.
In the afternoon a most interesting
lecture waa given by Jahu De Witt Mil
ler. His subject was Our Country; Its
Possibilities and Ita Perils.
As thia wae Mr. Miller's laat lecture
the tabernacle was crowded with eager
listeners. He prefaced his farewell ad
dress by saying that ahould the govern
ment fall in the future it will be tbe
fault of the people. Thia country ia
valuable for what haa been put into it.
Note the cost of the late war; to defend
an idea it coat the country many mil
lions. The war took tbe beat men,
phyaical and mental material in the
country and coat blood and braine.
Three hundred thousand men it cost to
maintain one idea —tbe idea of a repub
lic.
Oar geographical location ia a matter
of hopefulness ior tbe future of onr
country; we are hopeful on account of
our territorial extent; hopeful on ac
count of progress. Oar condition now
haß put unreat in the breaat of every
monarchical nation. We are hopeful on
acconnt of progreae; on account of the
love of the north for the aoutb, and of
tbe south fer the north.
Here Mr. Miller attempted a eolntion
of the race problem, asking as to what
shall be done for the negro. The south
will never, he said, accept the black
man as a social equal; we cannot live
with the colored race on equality, either
in the north or south. He favored
colonization of the negroes aa tbe only
solution of the race problem.
Aa to tbe ballot, almost everybody
may vote, bnt every voter who leaves
home to deposit the ballot should con
scientiously realize why, how and for
what purpose he disposits the ballot.
The peril of our county depends on the
manner in which our law is enforced.
It should be dealt to <>ach who needs it
regardless of sex. In after years will be
known by our successors by the work we
have done and the history we have
made.
Following tbe lectnre came tbe ronnd
table exercises at 5 o'clock. These were
probably tbe most enjoyable oi any dur
ing the assembly, and were led by Prof.
Josiah Keep, director of conchology
study. The afternoon programme was
most heartily appreciated.
TIIH EVENING CONCERT.
A concert was the feature of rtio even
ing. It was given under tbe direction
of O. Stewart Taylor, ably assisted by
Misses Stevens, Fowler, Park, and Mr.
James K. Logic.
Tbe opening selection was a chorus of
100 voices entitled No Shadows Yonder.
The chorus was led by Mr. Taylor. The
selection was magnificently sung and
eiicited hearty applause.
The two bolos, Polly and I and The
Daisy, were sung very acceptably by
Miss Marie Park, She responded to an
encore.
Miss Neally Stevens, the noted pian
iste, made a decided hit in her inimita
ble piano selections. She played The
Last Koee of Summer as an encore.
The bass soloist, J. K. Logic,
sang a selection in such
an attractive manner that he was com
pelled to respond to applause. He haß
a pleasant style and his good voice won
bim many admirers.
On ti< tbe Field of Glory, a vocal duett
by O. Stewart Taylor and J. R. Logic,
was one of the best selections of the
evening.
Misses Fowler and Park and Mr. Tay
lor eang a trio entitled Oh ! Memory.
The rendition was almost faultless.
Caprice Espagnol is the title of a
piano selection played by Mies Stevens
iv a very artistic manner. The selection
was dedicated to Miss Stevens by tbe
author, Moezkowski.
Mies Nellie Fowler eang a selection
from the Holy city. She has a very rich
contralto voice, and is one of the best
musicians in attendance at tbe assem
bly.
After a solo by O. Stewart Taylor, a
song was rendered by the chorus. This
concluded the programme,
TODAY'S EXERCISES.
The exercises of today will be devoted
more particularly to religions services.
After the devotional services from 8 to 9
o'clock, Sunday school will be held. The
Rev. A. J. Frost oi San Bernardino
will preach a sermon at 10:45 o'clock in

tention to have a yonng peoples' meet
ing in the afternoon, but aa the day is

cises, tbe meeting was postponed.

tainment, consisting of eoloa, duetts and

THE ANAHEIM DISEASE.
A Breaded Vine Pest Bald to Be Again
Appearing.
A report has come to the viticultural
commission that the dreaded Anaheim
disease has again appeared in the vicin
ity of Anaheim and Loa Angelea, saya
the San Franciaco Examiner. Clarence
J. Wetmore, the atate viticultural com
missioner, ia going down there at once
to investigate.
The Anaheim dieeaae, so called be
cause it first appeared in tbe vicinity of
that section, is one of the most destruc
tive and at the same time the moat in
explicable d ieeaee that has ever appeared
in the vineyards of California. It ia
eeveral years since it made its appear
ance, and then it was at first sup
posed to be a bad case of sunburn. The
leaves of the vines turned yellow, and
then grew brown and withered. The
dead leaves dropped off, tbe half-formed
grapes drooped and fell to the ground,
and in spite of all that the vineyard
man could do the vines died by hun
dreds. Microscopical examinations re
vealed nothing. All the teata tbe agri
cultural chemiat could apply revealed
nothing, and for two seasons the disease
raged practically unchecked. The vines
would bud out, grow luxuriantly until
midsummer, and then in a few weeks
they woHld droop and die. That is all
that is known of it to this day, and for
want of a better name tbey called it the
Anabeim dieeaae.
A Frenchman named Viala said re
cently that the disease was something
analogous to the cabbage blight of Eu
rope, a kind of fungoid growtb which is
not found here, but thia report was never
verified.
The report ia causing much uneasiness
among the vineyardista iv Loa Angelea
county, for the disease spreads almost as
rapidly aa phylloxera, and it kills the
v ines even more quickly than that pest.
The reault of Mr. Wetmore's investiga
tions will therefore be watched with the
keeneet intereet.
Mr. Wetmore haa another mission in
bie trip aouth. He will investigate the
phylloxera patch diecovered in Orange
county last March by Wiufleld Scott,
secretary of the viticultural commission.
Stringent means were taken te stamp
out and prevent the spread of the pest,
and Mr. Wetmore will Bee to what de
gree of aucceaa they have arrived.
RECKLESS DRIVING.
Two Men Thrown from a Buggy on Main
Street La.l Night.
A report came to the police station at
9 o'clock last night that two men and a
horse were killed by colliding with a
pepper tree near Fifth street.
The patrol wagon waß sent out and
brought the two supposed dead men to
the receiving hospital.
On examination by Drs. Ainsworth
and MacGowan one man was fonnd to
be dead drunk and the other one ditto,
with the addition of a severe scalp
wound.
An eye witness stated that the two
men were driving down Fifth Btreet at
a reckless rate of speed, and on turning
into Main street their cart collided with
a pepper tree, throwing both men clear
across the road on to tbe opposite
sidewalk. The horse disappeared in the
dietance and tbe buggy remained in
ruins on the street.
Both had a fortunate escape from Beri
cms Injury, if nothing worae.
Tha Concord at Gibraltar.
Washisgton, July 22.—The gunboat
Concord arrived at Gibraltar today, 18
days from Norfolk. She ia on her way
to China aud will probably require two
months' time to complete the voyage, if
ehe doea not atop at Bangkok.
POOR OLD PRINCESS ANGELINE.
'Hie Royal Personage Who Lives
in Seattle.
The Last Descendant of Seattle, the
Indians' Ruler.
Souvenir Spoons Hear Her Profile and
Her Credit at the Stores Is
Qood—Some Traditions or
Her Career.
Everybody on this side of the water
seems te be talking about royalty,
dukes, carle, princes and lorda of high
degree in general coming over to attend
our great fair and our still greater coun
try, aays a Seattle correspondent of the
New York World. It may, perhape,
therefore, be opportune to call attention
to an American princeae, a direct de
scendant of the forest kings who for so
many centuriea roamed undisturbed
through the country. Thia princeaa waa
born somewhere in the wilda of tbe
northwest nearly if not quite 100 years
ago. She paddled fearlessly about in
the dancing waters of Puget sound, and
said her prayers to the snow-capped
peaks that crown it, long before moat
of the readers of this letter had opened
their eyes to the light of an eastern
dawn.
It ia safe to conjecture that nine out
of every ten persons visiting this city
will become interested in "Angeline"
and her history. It could hardly be
otherwise, when ber pictures are dis
played through the town in every mer
chant's window. She is photographed
in all sorts af attitudes, in all sizes,
upon every conceivacle object of üße or
ornament. Her wrinkled face looks out
frou a huge, gaudily-covered lithograph,
proclaiming loudly that no tobacco in
the world equals this particular brand.
It smiles in a particularly modest way
from the gold bowls of souvenir Bpoons,
the covers of silver match-boxes, bon
bonnieres, old coins, etc. In fact, it is
impossible to turn in any direction with
out being confronted by Angeline inan
imate or Angeline in the fleah. For
this honored individual is not a peraon
ege of the past entirely, but "lives,
moves and haa her being" through
the atreeta of Beattie today. And
what a quaint figure she ia to be aura!
Her age—wbo knowe? though all
agree that it ia somewhere near the
century mark.
Princess Angeline'e father wae the
last of the great chiefs, and it wae after
this warrior tbe Queen City was named.
There ia a copied photograph of Chief
Seattle to be found in moat book stores,
and it shows a kindly face; that of tbe
i princess, indeed, being not unlike it.
Before he died he wae a friend of the
littler band of white settlers that found
ita way into the northweat, although it
ia not at all by a reflected light that
Princeaa Angeline shines. She eeema
to be a connecting link between the
old daya and the new, and ahe ia much
beloved by tbe early aettlera here.
Among the many romantic stories told
of the princeßs there is one that no
living person preeumea to question.
It is, indeed, on tbe facts it contains
that Angeline'a popularity rests. Thia
happened moons and moons ago, when
tbe tribes were powerful and the white
men but a handful in comparison. An
geline'a father had been a friend of the
whites, and she resolved to be a friend,
too. So, one night when ahe beard the
other Indians plotting a maeaacre of all
the settlers ere another sun, she stole
from her wigmam, running miles and
miles to warn the white people of their
danger. She thought nothing of her
bleeding bare feet and torn banda, nor
could boo wait to have them taken care
of, but got safely back after giving the
warning before sne waa missed. When
the attack was made, of course, tbe
whitea were prepared, and although the
Indiana ware two to one, tbey wore
badly defeated. The red men vowed
vengence on the head of the one who
bad betrayed tbem, but Angeline waa
never euspected.
Princess Angeline is beloved, too, by
her own people. Owing to tbe favors
she receives from tbe whites, she is en
abled to give them many articles of
clothing and provides them with com
forts they could not bave but for her.
The reeidenta of Seattle were most anx
ious to show their appreciation of her
servicee, their affection for the daughter
of the good old chief, by providing boun
tifully fbr her. They would bave built
her a small houee, given her enough to
live upon and taken the beet of care of
her, but tbe old habits were too strong,
and she preferred a tent to a cottage, a
life among ber own people to the civil
ization among strangers. So they finally
decided it waa beat to let her have her
own way, and they adopted on
other means of insuring her against
want, succeeding so well that many of
your New York swells would be glad of
her unlimited credit. She can go into
any of the stores and get whatever ahe
wantß. It makea no difference how big
a bill she runs up, every one ia willing
to fill her order. Theae orders are
charged to the account of any of\a dozen
wealthy men, who, in lieu of being able
to help her in any other way, resort to
that means.
Sometimes the bills are pretty large,
and a good share of the pounds of tea,
coffee and sugar, sacks of flour, delica
cies in the way of cakes and cookies find
their way into the tents of those of her
own people wbo most need them. The
other day the princess's grocery bill was
found to contain several charges for
cigarettes. Some email boy had prob
ably wound himself around her heart,
for no one would ever think that an
American princess smoked cigarettes.

A HORSE CREMATED.
A Model Way of Disposing of Dead An
imate.
Yesterday at half past 12 o'clock
two carriages left the city hall filled
with councilmen intent on again visiting
the city dumps.
The occasion of their vißit this time
was to be present at the cremation of a
horae, and judge from the methods
uaed whether the contractora were in a
position to satisfactorily dispose of all
dead animals which tbe city would con
sign to them.
The contractors, Ramieh de Marsh,
had on hand a grey horse.
The councilmanic party, consisting of
President Teed, Messrs. Innes, Rhodes,
Pesael, Munson, ex-Councilman Collins,
Health Officer Powera, City Clerk Luck
enbach and the press representatives ar
rived on the ground about 1 o'clock.
They were Bhown around the crematory
and all ita different appliances explained
to them.
The carcass of the horse was resting in
a dead animal wagon on the upper floor
of the building, and when the upper lid
of the furnaco was removed it waß swung
into a eea of seething flame at exactly
1:25 o'clock.
Tbe lid was shut down and the re
mains left inside to the mercy of the de
vouring element. Nothing extraordinary
took place after the body bad been
placed within the furnace beyond an ad
ditional amount of black smoke from
the chimney. There was no smell of
burning flesh which could ba noticed.
Naturally as the animal was thtown in
there was an odor of singed hair, but
when the lid sank back into its place all
tbat disappeared.
The councilmen wandered around and
exchanged notes. They became wearied
at the monotony and at last proposed
that a reporter, or perhaps in lieu, one
of the dogs present, be thrown in, to
help cremate the horse and help make
time. They probably supposed the
gasees generated by each would help cre
mation. The proposition was, however,
overruled and some of the party are still
living to tell the tale. So the minutes
rolled on. Some of the party, amongst
which was Health Officer Powers,
strolled out to tbe dumps.
They investigated thoroughly, and
nowhere could tbey discover an odor.
The dumps are in line condition now,
having been covered with chloride of
lime and are sprinkled with it three
times a week, The contractors are wil
ling to dig a deep trench and bury this
mixed matter, if the council so orders,
and cover it up completely with earth.
All this time the never-ceasing flames
were turning into ashen the carcass of
the horse lying in the crematory fur
nace. • The time approached, however,
for the raising of tbe lid, and exactly
at 11 minutes to 2 o'clock the interior
of tbe fnrnace was exposed to view.
What remained of the horse was simply
a mass of blackened matter, which on
the touch of a poker subsided into
ashes. Ohly tbe bones remained, and
tbey were so calcined by the intense
heat that they were oi the consistency
of chalk.
The poor old horse, who day before
yesterday was gaily nibbling tips of
alfalfa, only remained as a blackened
mass of fertilizing matter. The furnace
at the city crematory is supplied with an
appartus which facilitates the consump
tion of all matter thrown into it. Petro
leum is used instead of common fuel
and tbe oil is forced in at tbe rate of
from 60 to 00 gallons a day, according to
the amount of garbage and refuse thrown
in.
The flow from each of the six injectors
which at present surround the crema
tory is one-sixteenth of an inch in di
ameter, and tbe oil is forced into tbe
furnace by a pressure of 25 pounds.
Tbe draft is so arranged that it oscil
lates back and forth, and by this means
the burning oil, which enters in the
form of a spray, is carried over and
through tbe offal desired to be cremated.
The conncilmen were entirely eatis
fied witb tbe exhibition, and drove off'
behind their pair of spanking bays in a
great good humor.
It took just 24 minutes to reduce a
horse weighing 1400 pounds to bone and
ashes, and tbat was done without any
obnoxious smell pervading the neigh
borhood. When this disposition of the
city's dead animals is compared with
that hole of iniquity which at present
exists in the canon back of tbe Arroyo
esco, it wonld seem that both for the
benefit of the neighborhood and the
general health of the city, tbe proposi
tion of cremation is one which shonld
be quickly decided npon by tbe council.
W. F. Foster, ex-cbampion bicycle
rider of the Pacific coast, arrived in this
city yesterday from Ventura.
W. H. Goucher, the civil engineer and
a member of the Long Beach board of
trustees, was in tbe city yesterday.
Mr. C. C. Desmond, the hatter, left
yestenlcy for a five week's trip to the
east. He will visit the world's fair and
New York City.
F. R. Watson of the Southern Califor
nia paper nulls at Lynwood was in the
city yesterday. He dropped into the
Herald office, and stated amongst
other matters that his factory is meet
ing with deserved success and is run
ning at its full capacity.
William Guenther has returned from
a most enjoyable trip to the Btoddert's
camp in San Antonio canon. He is feel
ing the effects of the mountain air and
is trying hard to accommodate himself
to the warm atmoEphere which met him
on his return to the Angel city.
