COLONEL MAYBERRY AS A JEHU.
How He Droye a Reporter Down
Tbe San Gabriel Millionaire Does
Some Lively Traveling.
A Vlult to tbe (treat Hemes Dam
and tbe Newspaper Man's
Moreno Indicator: "Let me intro-
duce yon to Colonel Mayberry," eaid
Mr. StiUora, the affable hosi of the
Palma house at Ban Jacinto.
f shook hands with a tall, spare,
jolly-looking man sitting by the etove.
"He's a newspaper man," sard Stll
The colonel's face brightened, and it
was soon arranged that I should visit
the dam with him next day. Stilson
smiled, but I did not recognize its sig
nificance until I returned. When we
started next morning Stllson still
seemed to be enjoying himself, as
though anticipating some fun.
The colonel pioked up the lines, and
to my astonishment the horses started
off on a dead run. I thought he would
pall them down in a moment, but aa he
did net, I said:
"You must have bought these horses
from a Are department."
"No, trained them that way myself,"
and he whipped them up.
So we galloped on all over the Hemet
ranch, only slowing to a trot upon the
li) mile, 10 per cent grade tbat leads to
tlie Strawberry and Hemet valleys. We
reached the camp in tbe Hemet valley
tbout noon. The dam was not then
Bniahed and there was but little water
n Lake Hemet.
The Hemet dam is a coloaaal maaon-
Sry structure, built of five and 10-ton
ranite boulders, set in cement between
ie lofty, almost perpendicular granite
alls of a narrow cafion. It ia 100 feet
thick at the base, 110 feet high and 200
feet long at the top. The work of con
struction wbb then in progress. The
r-o'onoi took me high up the bluff to his
lookout house, where I could Bee the
operation of his "rock snatcher," as he
"That cable," the colonel pointed out,
"running from the engine house to the
tower on the dam, then on and fastened
to that tree, has a grooved wheel veloci
pede carriage running on it, attached to
the under side of which is a wire rope
fall and tackle. It is going oat for a
load now; watch it."
Tbe carriage ran out on the cable,
seemingly at the rate of about 10 miles
an hour, stopping over the quarry,
which was about 500 feet below the
Jam, and the block and tackle waa
propped 150 feet to tbe bottom of the
aflon. Three immense boulderß were
pen hooked on to the lower block.
; >"Take my stop watch and time that
nd," eaid the colonel.
! p almost frightened me, the effect
,»s m startling. That mass of rock,
ligbioe at lease 10 tons, ehot into the
i '..to „tta fro -\» mighty weight
pie the rocks clashing---together made
»crt like the rattling of a battery of
Mlery in action. In 46 seconds the
fe load was landed ou the dam.
1 invented that hoisting apparatus,"
< tbe colonel gleefully. "Isn't it
'It is very much like you, colonel," I
Jwered. "How did yon happen to
nk of building this dam?"
MVell, I will tell you. About three
Ire ago I bought the Hemet ranch.
§ examination I found that a dam
it high in this canon would make
three milea long and a mile wide,
nding enough water to irrigate
VOO acres of land. I knew it would
c $1,000,000, and I did not feel like
ling up all the money.
rV hittier of San Francisco was in
Iftngelea at the time, and I asked
hi to join me. He said he knew
ning about irrigation, and wouldn't
Ilk to it. A happy thought then
stk me. Whittier had just returned
f'te fishing trip, and had Buch bad
lutiat he was disgußted. Whittier

That was thoffitoSSffi
looked over the
canon, a thousand feet below, and
actually trembled. I now realized
what a marvelous driver the colonel
was, for certainly there is not another
man 'n America that could have made
that turn with safety, traveling as we
were at the rate of 20 miles an hour.
Another remarkable thing was that the
buggy traveled as steadily as though it
were on level ground.' The colonel had
wonderful command of his horses, and
with consummate skill zigzaged between
the boulders andtineveunesnof the road.
The realization of his skill reassured
me. The colonel continued:
"That off horse, yon observe, is the
faster of the.two. Hie mate died a month
ago. When he was alivo I used to go
down this hill a great deal faster." I
thanked God the beast was dead.
We went tearing on with unslackened
speed,'the colonel talking all the time.
As we came bowling down the stretches
I felt Mre we units t go straight on at

colonel whipped up the off horso and
came around all right, although our
hind wheels frequently swung out over

reached the hotel Stilson waa standing

into a broad grin.

DMTHE JUSTICES' COUBTS
SOME DEMI MONDAINE9 BEFORE
_ - —.T
Goodlrind Acquitted of the Charge
of Vurglary—minor Cases
Justice Seaman's pourt was very full
yesterday morning, but the audience
was principally composed of boys and
youths who anticipated some amuse
ment in listening to the trial of six in
mates of Grace Carlyle's house, who
were charged with disturbing the peaoe.
There were two remarkable incidents.
Ono was the evidence of Police Officer
Vignes, who stated that he and others
listened to the inmates of the bagnio
singing vile songs for half an hour be
fore he and his brother officers took pro
ceedings to Btop Ihe disturbance.
The other was the evidence of Grace
Carlyle, who denied the charge of sing
ing indecent songs, and cynically re
marked that they left that kind of thing
to thoir visitors, who were never behind
hand in taking advantage of'tl-e license.
Justice Seaman lined them all $10
J. Goodkind, the young Hebrew who
was arrested two weeks ago for burglar
izing Jacoby's clothing store on North
Main street, waa acquitted yeaterday by

everyone, and waa principally due to

Death at His Home In
San Francisco Call: Alaal Poor
James John Maloney, better known as
"Soonchin" Maloney, is reported to be
dying at bis home in Oakland.
His disease ia puzzling the physicians,
for while there is no apparent organic
trouble, the osee powerful form of Scon
chin is alowiy wasting away and he can
not survive much longer.
That tho senatorial contest could be
in progress at the Palace hotel, or that
Vice-President Stevenson could be en
tertained at the Baldwin without the
preseneeof Sconcliin to lend enthusiasm
and noise to the occasion, has caused
tbe politicians of both the great parties
to marvel at his absence during the past
The disappearance of the well-known
politician and official of tbe law depart

from the streets and hotel corridors

Sconchin Malony has long been a
familiar ligure in San Franciaco. While
his fame is not so widespread and na
tional in ita character aa that of some
who have been before the public, te is
well known in California, and as an at
tendant at every political convention
held in the state lor 15 years, he has
become personally acquainted with
nearly every political aspirant; aud at
least is known by. sight to every conven
Last summer Maloney went east, and
after attending the Chicago convection,
where be worked enthusiastically foT
James G. Blame, he proceeded to New
York. In Gotham his oratory and
Shakeaperean quotations attracted tbe
attention of the political loungers at the
Hoffman house, and he waa employed at
a salary of $100 a week to stump the
state for the Republican ticket.
Maloney returned from New York on
February last a changed man. Hia
happy-go-lucky manner had disappeared
and he eeemed morose and melancholy.
He waa evidently suffering from some
unknown diaeaee and gradually went in
to a decline. Recently hia limbs be
came so wasted away that he could span
the leg above the knee with oue hand.
His laat appearance in public waa a
few weeka ago at the funeral of the late
Senator Leland Stanford, to whom Scon
chin waa devotedly attached. He went
down to Palo Alto with tears in his
eyes, and sat with the reporters in the
quadrangle, his head bowed upon bis
breast, with hia hands crossed upon hia
knee. He spoke never a word, and
those who saw them beside the bier of
the dead senator could scarcely imagine
that the fading form was that of the

Wiiliam A. Brady, who has known Ma

J. G. ROSSITER'S OFFICE.
JUDGE 8 HAW DECLARES HIM TO
UK PASADENA'S JUSTICE.
Attorner-Reiinral Hart's Teat Caae Doea
Not Meet With Muob Success.
The Points of the
Judge Shaw yesterday rendered a de
cision in tbe case wherein certain indi
viduals, dissatisfied with the estab
lished order of things, endeavored to
have J. G. Rossiter ousted as recorder of
The decision was in favor of Mr. Ros
siter, and the court filed quite a long
j opinion in the case.
The action was brought by Attorney-
General Hart to determine the right of
the defendant to hold the office. Pasa
dena is a city of the sixth class, and the
section of tbe law applicable to its gov
ernment, section 851, provides among
other things that the recorder is to be
appointed in such cities by the board of
trustees, and shall be one of the justices
of the peace of the township in which
the city or town is situated-
At the time Mr. Rossiter was ap
pointed there was but one justice of the
peace in Pasadena township residing
within the city limits, and he had re
fused to accept the office. Mr. Rossiter
was not a justice of the peace, but waa
otherwise eligible to the office.
The plaintiff contends that under the
provisions of section 851 no person can
hold tbe office of city recorder in a city
of the sixth class unless he is at the
same time one of the justices of the
peace of the township.
The defendant, on the other hand, in
sisted that tbe clause of that section
wbich declares tbat the recorder "shall
be one of the justices of the peace of the
township in wbich such city ia situated,"
is directory only, and that in case the
justices residing in the city refuse to ac
cept the office the board of trustees have
the power to appoint some other per
After qnite a fall discussion of the
question, Jadge Shaw holds as follows :
"It is clear that the words should be
held to be merely directory, tt follows
that, under the circumstances of thia
caee the defendant ia eligible to the of
fice of city recorder of the city of Paaa
dena, and tbat he islawfally holding the
ofiice. Judgment must therefore go in
his favor. It is not necessary in this
case to decide that tbe trustees have the
power arbitrarily to appoint a person as
recorder who is not a justice of the
peace. The point decided is that when
there is no justice in the city, or none
who is otherwise eligible, or when the
justices residing in the city refuse to ac
cept the office, then the trustees have
tbe right and power to appoint some
other person to the office of oity re

ABOUT ARIZONA'S ANNEXATION.
A Phoenixiau Who Favors a
He Wants a State Formed From
Southern California and Arizona.
Some or tlie Feature* Which He Thinks ■
Lend Substance to the Flan*
The Onalltles of the
Santa Monica is at the present time
the summer home of a jolly crowd of
Arizoniane, wbo are earnestly talking
annexation to Southern California and
the making of a new Btate out of the
territory. As thia would put a new
phase on the subject of state division,
and believing that an interview with
them published in the Herald would
prove interesting, a reporter wbb de
tailed to learn their views. The re
porter saw A. Kidewell, a prominent
merchant of Phtenix, who seema to
bubble all over with pride for the terri
tory and earnest endeavor for the new
Btate. The substance of the interview
is bb follows:
"Arizona shouldbe annexed to South
ern California apd forme.new state with
the capital at Los Angesea or some cen
tral point which the voters will decide
"With the counties oS Ventura, Santa .
Barbara, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange,
San Bernardino and San Diego and the
territory of Arizona, the new Btate of
Southern California will comprise
something over 200,000 square milea—
nearly the eize of France, which haa
40,000,000 inhabitants, and larger than
Englaud, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium
and Holland combined, having 44,000,
--000 of eouls. The new state would have '
a length of over 800 m.Ues from east to
weet, an average width, of 300 milea from
north to Bouth and have 200 .milea of eea
coast and a population of 300,000. Theve
would be no conflicting elements in the
union of touthern California with
Arizonia, the Interests of its people
being identical. <
"Arizona's principal industry is min
ing. The cattle, agricultural and horti
cultural pursuits of ita people being
secondary to mining. Southern Cali
fornia's great induatry is
the cultivation of the citrus fruit and
"The climate of Southern California ia
what might be termed temperately semi
tropical, while that of Southern Arizona
is semi-tropical and even tropical in cer
tain portions. The result is that every
thing matures by three to four weeks
earlier|in|Ar;zona, which in thus enabled
to ship to eastern markets early veget
ables and fruit.
"With Arizona for its back country,
Southern California would be greatly
aided in its commercial importance, its
growing manufacturini; ir.du.ptry and tbe
general wealth Gf its people. Loi Ar>»»l«S
would soon become a city of 250,000
"With Arizona's untold hidden
wealth in gold, mtver and copper;
its thickly timbered section of over 250
square miles; the coal mines as yet un- .
developed ; the great deposits of chalce
dony, granite, red rock, etc.; tbe incom
parable productivenesH of tlje soil in the
Salt River, Gila, Yuma arid SanPedro
valleys, the annexation or union 61 such
a territory to Southern California would
result in a condition of things tbat would
be notential in the affairs of the coun
Regarding the business outlook in
Arizona Mr. Redewell is likewise enthu
siastic. Not a single bank failed, and all
are in a healthy condition, able to sus
tain the aßßaults of any or all their
depositors, should they so desire it. No
business failure to chronicle, either.
Railroads are being built in every
direction, and all heading towards Phoe
nix, its principal city. Real estate val
ues have not suffered during the panic.
The crops throughout the territory are
over an average, while the mines will
yield more the present year, notwith
standing tbe low price of silver, than in
any previous epoch.
Phojuix, the capital of the territory, is
adopting metropolitan airs with its nu
merous Tofty stone and brick structures;
its electric car lines; its complete tele
phone system ; its beautiful drjvewarys '
and shaded avenuea; its miles of
'cemented sidewalks. •
The professional trades are well rep
resented in the legal, medical, educa
tional and journalistic lines. I have,
only to chronicle one trade that does not I
fare well in Phoenix. It is the coroner,
wbo complains bitterly of the lack of "
patronage thus: Business is d— bad;
no one dies.

None of the fumigating tents and

the money, therefore, passed through

carried out the ordinance of the supervi
Mr. Scott said some people, after read
ing the article in yesterday's Herald,
had ppoken to him ac if he had some
selfish intereat in the matter, but the
article could only have borne aueh an
interptetation by violent presumption.
