Interesting Statistics Furnished by the
Director-General of the Fiestm.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 14.— The
Times to-morrow will print the financial
report of Max Meyberg, the director-gen
eral of la fiesta. It shows receipts from
all sources to have been $29,242 and ex
penses $31,737, leaving a deficit of $2495 due
the First National Bank, which advanced
sufficient money to pay off all claims.
The report gives a mass of figures, which
will prove of interest to people of this city,
among them being the statement that
40,000 visitors attended the fiesta, and that
they spent over $500,000, which was dis
tributed among the citizens generally.
The report then says:
"It has given to Los Angeles a reputa
tion for enterprise and push which money
cannot pay for. The advertisement
through newspapers in the United States,
which gave glowing descriptions of our
festival, will draw attention to our city.
This of itself is invaluable and should be
taken advantage of by our citizens."
The report is addressed to the Merchants'
Association of Los Angeles, and it is said
that at the next meeting of that body a
proposition will be made to wipe out the
small deficit before mentioned.

"Waters, May 3. 1895.
"Before leaving home for a trip to Sitka I
received a letter from Mr. Miner Bruce,
the explorer, asking me to write you any
particulars I might happen to know re

likely this little information I have on the
subject is already known to you, but it can
do no harm to write what I know.
"First— ln 1857 I was located at Fort

From this intercourse I learned that all

there was uncertainty as to ownership.
That company would most assuredly be
well acquainted with the maps which as

FRESNO, Cal., May 14.— The party of
Valley road directors spent the day in
specting the country east and west of
Fresno. During the morning they drove
out to the Kearney estate, returned to
Fresno and thenwent east to the Malter,
Barton and other big vineyards. They
were accompanied by a large party of
Fresno people. Lunch was served at the
At 4 o'clock this afternoon the directors
had a conference with a committee rep
resenting Malaga, Fowler, Selma, Kings
burg and Traver. These towns are situ
ated on the line of the Southern Pacific
south of Fresno, and have been holding
union meetings to form plans to secure the
new road. They lie in a rich fruit coun
try, and ship a large amount of grain also.
The representatives of that country urged
upon the directors the advantage of pass
ing through a fruit district rather than
through a grain section, as the former has
a larger tonnage to the acre. The railroad
men made no definite statement, but prom
ised to give the matter thorough con
Vice-President Watt has stated that
he believes that at Fresno the road should
branch, one line going through the east
side to Visalia, and the other through the
west side to Hanford. This seems to be
the opinion of the other directors also.
The two lines would unite at Delano, or at
some point near there. The valley here is

The directors this evening had a secret
conference at the Hughes Hotel with a

Hobbs and A. J. Wiener, and a committee
of the Chamber of Commerce, consisting
of Harry Sherwood, Arthur R. Briggs, 0.
J. Woodward, T. C. White, Alex Gold
stein, Louis Gundelfinger and Louis Ein
Contrary to expectation the directors
made a definite request of the representa
tives of the Fresno people. The railroad
men freely admitted that the line must
come to Fresno, and said further that from
twenty to forty acres would be required for
a round-house, depot, machine-shops and
other buildings. This will be made the
division headquarters. More land than
will be needed at once will be asked, as the
directors said they wished to be prepared
for the growth of the city. The directors
also said that they would expect a grant of
the right-of-way through the county.
Fresno will not be expected to subscribe
for much stock, but the directors want
some to be taken in order that interest
may be taken in the road.
The result of the conference is considered
very satisfactory by the Fresno business
men who took part, and active and organ
i zed efforts will be made to secure the con
cessions asked. The people of this city
have been waiting to learn what is ex
pected of them and are now ready to press
the work. A public meeting will probably
be called to arouse further interest.
The party leaves here for San Francisco
at 2:45 o'clock to-morrow morning.

Norris of Fowler, together with citizens of
the railroad committee.
The directors met the party at the
Hughes House this afternoon and received
Tery favorably the presentation of the
claims of this section for recognition. The
directors express themselves in favor of an
air line so far as practicable. Such a line
from Fresno to Visalia will go through the
towns included in the organization re
cently formed here to secure the road.
The committee is well pleased with the
assurance given by the directors.

Beyond the river the preliminary lines will

Perilous Trip of Miss London
derry Across the Santa
An Exciting Adventure With a Steer
Which Took Offense at Her
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., May 14.—
Miss Annie Londonderry, the young
woman who has been making a bicycle
trip around the world, arrived here late
Monday night after a rough ride from San
Luis Obispo. She left there on Saturday
morning and made 120 miles before night.
The second day she rode 9ti miles, and on
the third she completed her trip, making
87 miles, which included crossing the
Banta Ynez Mountains.
The heat was so Intense when she
reached the summit at noon that she de
cided to continue her trip after sunset.
After starting down the mountain it be
came so dark on account of the dense fog
that she did not dare ride, having already
had three slight falls on account of the
darkness; and so she walked almost the
whole way into Santa Barbara, a distance
of twenty miles.
While climbing the mountain a wild
steer took offense at the red skirt which
she wore and made a dash at her, but a
Mexican on horseback stopped the animal
with a lasso.
Miss. Londonderry spoke very highly of
the treatment whi,ch she had been accorded
throughout California. She is registered
at the Arlington Hotel, and will ride an
exhibition mile in the races whii.h are to
be held here Wednesday. She will also
lecture at the Arlington and at the race
track before she leaves.

Frightening a Man to Death.
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., May 14.— 1n
the Superior Court to-day a motion for a
new trial in the Tischbein case was denied.
This finally disposes of a suit which has
won considerable celebrity.
Appellant August Tischbein is the man
who, in March, made felonious entrance
to the house of an elderly saddler, H. C.
Tennant, at midnight, causing the latter's
death from an attack of heart disease,
superinduced by fright. Owing to certain
complications it was impracticable to urge
a charge of manslaughter, and Tischbein
was tried on a charge of disturbing the
peace. One jury disagreed, but a second
convicted him, and he was sentenced to
Day a fine of $150, with the alternative of
150 days in the county jail, the severest
possible sentence. He will serve time.

of His Men.
Threatened With a Suit Because of
a Melon Forage During the
A. R. U. Strike.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 14.— Colonel
Park Henshawof Ohico may be summoned
to appear before a Justice at an early day
as defendant in an action for the recovery
of the value of a load of watermelons. The
fruit was devoured by some of Henshaw's
men, who were on guard duty here during
the A. R. U. strike last July. The man
who threatens to sue the Chico warrior is
Farmer Byron of Sutter Township.
One day during the strike Byron drove
to town with a load of watermelons, and
somewhere in the suburbs encountered a
body of Henshaw's men. The Chico army
swarmed all over the farmer's wagon, and
his watermelons disappeared in quick
order. Byron says that flenshaw promised
to see that he received the value of the
watermelons, but afterward told he must
look to the State for his pay.
Byron says he gave Henshaw until to
morrow to settle the bill, and if he fails to
come to time he will bring suit for $16 and

Rosa was shocked to-day when the Call
brought the news of a fatal accident to
Alva Porter Moore, near Los Angeles.
Confirmation of the sad news came
speedily when Judge A. P. Moore re
ceived a telegram this morning announc

Young Moore left here about a month
ago, for the purpose of gathering material
for an article on "Tramp Life in Cali

consent of his parents, and only a few days
ago they received a letter from him.
For some time Moore was one of the
editors of a weekly paper, the Cyclone,
and afterward of the Porcupine. He was
a young man of good habits, but fond of
adventure, and had a great thirst for
knowledge; He has been in newspaper
work since he was 8 years of age. Two
years ago he stood highest among the.
students of this county in a competitive
examination for a free ticket to the World's
Fair offered by a San Francisco paper. He
had been on the road several weeks in the
guise of a tramp while preparing the de
scriptive article on tramp life for the
Home Journal. He had with him a
sketchbook, in which he drew many pic
tures of the odd characters and scenes he
encountered. From letters written to his
parents it was known that he was greatly
enjoying his experiences. The trip was to
have ended in a few days.
