PKBTAISISG TO THE PARKS
Tho board of nark commissioners yes
terday morning formally decided to rec
ommend to the council that the new park
pear WestUke bo named Sunset.
A communication addressed to Joseph
Karnshaw, a landscape engineer, ad
dressed to the mayor, was read to the
board yesterday by Secretary Mendenhal!,
In response to your kind invitation to
suggest any improvements to the city
parks that might occur to me during my
temporary stay in Los Angeles, I take the
liberty of referring to a change in West
lake park which seema to be desirable,
and one which, owing to the extensive
grading now being done in that locality,
cculd probably be effected at a reasonable
"I would suggest that about half an acre
of the south end of the lake next west of
Alvarado street be filled up to a proper
grade and the space utilized for the benefit
of visitors, and especially those attracted
to the park on concert days. The park
low contains a much larger proportion of
water surface than is eittier necessary or
desirable; the portion of tbe lake referred
to is rarely used for boating purposes, and
might when filled be laid out so as to en
hance the beauty of the park and also pro
vide a large carriage space, which, in con
nection with a driveway partially around
the edge of the lake and intersecting the
main avenue a little west of Alvarado
street would relieve the streets in the vicin
ity that are now often dangerously block
aded on musical occasions. The present
walks nre generally remote from the ter
mini of the street railways and additional
walks near tho principal entrance are
needed, as they would afford direct access
to the music stand aud boathouse, which
are the two principal objects of interest to
the general public.
"Although not strictly in the nature of a
park suggestion, I would further remark
from what I have observed, that the ser
vices of a platting and gardening commis
sion, controlling the lines, grades and
widths of streets, might result in a marked
improvement in the future appearance of
this city as no offsets would then be tier- i
mitted in the lines of the streets, which
should be continuous, and the grades of I
the streets would not. on account of a falso I
economy, so nearly conform to the original j
surface of tbe ground as at present, but
would, by a general deepening of the cuts,
hi established witii reference to easy, per
manent grades for public travel, and the
furnishing of sufficient material for the I
proper development of the low adjacent j
lots, instead of allowing street improve- j
nients to be located and made according !
to the generally selfish views oi' property

ter promoted by the joiu. intelligent ac
tion of said commission and the city en

were endorsed, and will later be acted

JACOB STEINBERQ MISSINO
A Carpenter Leaves Home Sixteen Weeks Ago
and Not Seen Sines
Jacob Steinberg left his wife and three
| children sixteen weeks ago yesterday, say
| ing that ho had found a little job at car
j pentering, and has not been heard from
since. Mrs. Steinberg is not a well woman
and with the three little ones she finds it a
struggle to get along. Sho would appre
ciate it as a favor to receive any informa
, tion regarding him.
Jacob Steinberg is about 40 years of age,
! six feet tall, thin, dark complexion, dark
i eyes, looks sickly and is bald on the top of
I his head. The natural voice is not loud
at.d he stoops slight y when walkirg. lie
aid his family came here from Seattle,
Wash., a year ago.
DE LACUNA'S FRANCHISE
Tbe Bottom Is Out of the Opposition
jDe Lsguna Has Transferred All ot His Inter
ests In the Scheme and the Thing
Is All but Dead
Herman de Laguna, to whom the city
council awarded a telephone franchise
some two months ago, has left the city. He
departed yesterday afternoon for the
north, his destination being Stockton,
where he is now employed securing a right
of way for an irrigating enterprise.
Before leaving de Laguna transferred all
of his rights and title of whatever nature in
his proposed enterprise to his backers, pre
sumably C. W. McLeod of Riverside, and
he is now out of the deal entirely. He in
formed a Herald reporter that ho had
j been throughout the negotiations pending
I for the franchise, and up to yesterday,
only an agent acting for other parties, his
j interests in the matter ceasing just as soon
as he had obtained his commission for his
It can be stated upon the best of author
ity that the proposed new telephone line
will probably never be built. De Laguna
himself yesterday gave z.n unwilling 6pm-
I ion to this effect.
It is understood that a Chicago capitalist
j who had been in some form or other asso
| elated in the enterprise at the start, backed
I water when it came to considering the
| proposition seriously. That scared all
| hands, and there has been ever since a
; gentral hustle to get out from under.
The city has lost nothing in the flunk
whicli has been made, the municipal treas
ury, in fact, gaining the $375 cash which
De Laguna paid for his franchise, besides
which the scare to the Sunset people has
; resulted in a vastly better service than the
i one prevalent before De Laguna arrived
upon the scene.
Joseph Mesruer remarked yesterday that
as one of the results of the second fran
chise granted, the people of the East Side
now have an excellent service at reasona
ble rates, whereas there was before no
service at all.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING-. MARCH 6, 1896.
George MacGowan of the London and
Westminster bank, who is visiting relative!
near San Gabriel, said that the probable
loss of Cuba would make Spanish securi
ties almost as raluless as some of the older
Turkish bonds. So little value is placed
upon them now that they are scarcely
negotiable securities, while in the open
market the current prices are about 50 per
cent below their par value. It would be
quite impossible for Spain to negotiate a
new loan at any price with foreign capital
ists, and as year by year her people have
become impoverished, the subscriptious to
a national loan are impossible. Both Spain
and Portugal are hopelessly bankrupt, and
with Italy, are the pauper monarchies
The ignominious defeat of (leneral Bara
tieri in Abyssinia is causing much excite
ment in the Italian quarter. Sig. F. Ferrati
of Genoa, who is visiting friends on South
Main street, has a son in Baratieri's army,
and early this morning had a cable from a
comrade of Ins son staling that the Italian
force had been strengthened by belated re
inforcements and would make a final stand
at Adigrat. Young Ferrati is wounded in
the right hand, but not seriously. The re- :
treat, covered by Arimondi with a handful
of men. will be as historic as the memor
able one of Sir John Moore at Corunna.
The Italians were outnumbered by hordes
of Abyssinian* and allies by 500 to 1.
A number of Cuban volunteers left tho
city yesterday to join a large party from
St. Louis at El Paso, Tex. For the past
three weeks they have been drilling not far
from the county hospital, meeting at nights
in a vacant store on Los Angeles street.
They aro all young men of education and
many of social standing. The Simmons
hardware company of St. Louis has fur
nished the necessary equipment through
the agency of a well known hardware firm
in Los Angeles. S. A. Morales is tho or
ganizer o p several groups of volunteers,
who have been quietly leaving Southern
California almost every day for wetks.
The points of departure for Cuba are said
to be Tampico, Vera Cruz and Galveston.
Henry Olsen, the well-known real estate
man and capitalist of Chicago, is visiting
friends in Los Angeles. He is of opinion
that the assignment of the Central Trust
and Savings batik of Chicago to the Chi
cago Title and Trti3t company will per
haps save something for the creditors and
depositors, the majority of whom are poor,
hard-working people. It unfortunately
happens that ttie assets, ample on paper
and no doubt capable of being realized
upon in time, are of such a character that
they aro not available for security for a
loan. The deposits are about $75,000, the
actual cash in the hank is about .SII,OOO.
A local trust company, which has been a
correspondent of the defunct bank, is
quite unaffected by the failure, but there
are quite a large number of small creditors
in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Tacoma and
Harry W. Benson of the Western weigh
ing and inspection bureau, is busily en
gaged in turning the tables on dishonest
shippers in Southern California, and indeed
those of San Francisco. Portland and
points in the jiorthwest, for frauds through
unelerbilling whereby the railroads had
been defrauded of large sums in freight
charges. Fictitious weights, false labeling
of merchandise and other dishonest de
vices to boat the roads have long l>een
known and patiently borne, but abundant
proof has now been ,secured by the West
ern weighing association which will be pre
sented to the interstate commerce associa
tion for investigation. It is a poor law
which does not work both ways and hold
shippers and carriers responsible for in
The gradual closing of the harbor of New
York is not receiving that attention which
sitcit a serious matter deserves, said S, F.
Northmore of Brooklyn. It may seem an
exaggerated statement to m ike, but it is
nevertheless true that New York is the
largest manufacturing city in the world, if
due weight be given to the value of pro
ducts turned out—a condition due to the
fact that tbe raw materials for manufac
ture can be gotten together etieaper there
than elsewhere and distributed more expe
ditiously and at less cost than from any
other point. The last census shows that
the total value of the manufactures pro
duced in New York city during the census
year was $777,222,721, but if wo tako the
manufactured products of greater New
York—that is to say, New York, Brook
lyn, Jersey City, Long Island
City, Hoboken and Newark, they
amount to $ 1,200,671,459. For the same
year the ocean commerce of New York
amounted to $516,420,692 for imports
and for exports $348,051,991, aggregat
ing $804,478,484. The value of manu
factures in the city of New York lacks only
about 3 per cent of equaling in value the
total imports into all the ports of the United
States, and the total value of the manu
factured products of greater New York is
very nearly 75 per cent of the total foreign
commerce of the United States, and the
wages paid are slightly in excess of the
value of the annual exports from New York
City alone. These facts were adduced by
the distinguished civil engineer as a cogent
argument for the immediate improvement
of San Pedro harbor and the consequent
establishment of manufacturing industries
in and around the metropolis of Southern
The concession to the English South
American Cable company to lay a cable
landing at La I 'lata, Argentina, which was
canceled by the Argentine government
in January last, on the ground that the
company had failed to rightfully secure
the landing points necessary for its suc
cessful operation is now renewed, said F.
H. Fotheigill, tho eminent deep sea elec
trician, at the Ramona yesterday. The re
vocation was caused by Brazil's claim of
ownership of the island of Trinidad, and
the denial by Argentina to England's right
of ownership of tbe Falkland islands.
Amicable correspondence with Lord Salis
bury is said to have resulted in the restora
tion of friendliness, and I expect to go to
the little island of Trinidad about the end
of, April to arrange a relay station at that
point. Mr. Fothergill said further, that
the proposed cable to Australia, via the
Sandwich islands, giving direct communi
cation to the United States and via the
Atlantic cable to England would be in
operation within the next two years.

RELEASED FROM BONDAGE
Confinement In Jail Breaka the Chains of a
Fourteen prisoners were discharged in
one batch yesterday from various terms of
confinement in the city jail. This is the
largest number liberated at any one time
during the year and considerably depletes
the working force of the chain gang. All
of the released men looked healthy and
fat, showing that prison fare and work had
agreed with them. One in particular. Jim
Clark, a waiter by occupation, who has just
finished ninety days for vagrancy, came
forth a changed man. When incarcerated
Clark was a veritable wreck from the use
of morphine, being what is known as a
•hypo fiend. In his cell ho howled and
raved at bsing deprivod of his allowance
of the drug and made the night hideous
with his screams.
When locked up Clark was much emaci
ated from the baneful effects of the stimu
lant, and weighed only 85 pounds. Yes
terday on Ids release he tipped the scales
at 122. and is still gaining. He expressed
himself as thankful for his liberation from
the chains that bound him to the fearful
habit, and expressed a determination to
henceforth conduct himself like a man.
Several other cases of liko nature might
be cited, which prove that a term in jail is,
in many instances, an evil not unmixed
SUNSET LIMITED ACCIDENT

It was learned yestorday that the Sunset
Limited, over the Sou-hern Pacific rail
road, which left this city last Sunday, met
with a serious accident at Strauss, N. M.,
just twelve miles west of £1 Paso, Last
The limited was running at a speed of
sixty miles an hour, and after passing
through Strauss struck a sharp curve. The
rear car of the train was the diner. All
the rest of tho train went around the curve
safely, but the forward trucks of the diner
left the rails and tho car bumped over the
ties, tearing up the track for a distance of
500 feet. Fortunately, no one was hurt,
and the only evil which resulted was a de
lay of three hours. Tho diner was pulled
olf to the side of the track and abandoned.
This is the first time an accident of any
kind has happened to the Sunset Limited.
