Rumors About the Main-
Street Car Line.
Statements that It Is Sold to
the Cable Company.
The Result of Mr. Crank's Visit to
General Chapman's Views of the East.
An Inquest on a Small
When Hon. J. F. Crank goes to Chi
cago he always returns with something
in his pocket which profits him consid
erably in particular, and Los Angeles in
general. Some years ago he went to
Chicago, dickered around a little and
came back with the price of his Pasa
dena railroad in his wallet, and the
Santa Fe road came to Los Angeles.
Then he took his grip in his hand a
couple of years ago and again went to
Chicago; when he came back he had as
part of his baggage the magnificent
cable road system of the city.
Mr. Crank returned from Chicago the
other day, and as yet there has been no
official intimation of what he accom
plished there, beyond his organization
of a water company, but Mrs.
Rumor has commenced to talk
about his plans, and she told a Herald
reporter some interesting things
yesterday. The only trouble about
Mrs. Rumor as a source of news is, that
she sometimes makes a mistake; the
old lady yesterday assured the Herald
man that her information was abso
lutely correct; that it came originally
from Mr. Soandso, who is very close to
Mr. Crank, and that a few days would
prove its correctness.
"You see," said the old lady, "Mr.
Crank has not been satisfied to share
the public nickels with the Main-street
car line. That road covers a thickly
settled portion of the city, and does a
good business and is capable of being
profitably extended. This being the
situation, Mr. Crank packed his grip
with a lot of bonds and went to Chi
cago, He has returned without the
bonds, having exchanged them for solid
gold coin, and now he has almost con
cluded negotiations with the Main-street
car people for the purchase of their
"How much of a mileage have they
got, madame?" queried the reporter.
"They have a main line extending
from Main and Temple streets on Main
to Washington, on Washington to JefFer
aon, on Jefferson to Wesley avenue, and
on Wesley avenue to Agricultural park,
of 4.41 miles. Then there is abranchfrom
Main to Figueroa, to Washington, to Jef
ferson, where it unites again with the
main line, amounting to 1.45 miles. Then
there is the Fifth-street branch to the
Southern Pacific depot, which makes .62
miles. This makes altogether 6.48 miles,
which added to the cable system will
make a great showing."
"Will Mr. Crank turn it into a cable
"Why, most certainly. When there is
capital enough to meet the first cost of
building a cable road it is the cheapest
Mr. Crank was not in the city yester
day, so the gossip could not be verified,
but it is very apt to be reliable, as sev
eral persons who ought to know corrob
orated the reports.
General Robert Chapman's Views of
General Robert H. Chapman, of this
city, graduated from Yale college in 1850
with seventy-seven other young men.
There are forty-seven of his old chums
■till alive, and June 24th, at New Haven,
twenty-three of them celebrated the
fortieth anniversary of their graduation.
General Chapman returned to his
home in this city a few days ago, having
made an extensive journey through the
east, besides joining the young old boys
of his class at New Haven. In conver
sation yesterday with a Herald reporter
the general said: "The most decided
change I noticed among the people of
the east and north was the almost entire
disappearance of the sectional feeling
which was caused by 'the late unpleas
antness.' I found nothing of it," he
said, "and the people I met told me
that it existed no longer, except when
occasionally a loud-mouthed politician
frothed and howled."
General Chapman found the weather
very oppressive and missed the dry
climate and cool breezes of semi-tropic
California. He returned a month sooner
than he intended to, simply on account
of the miserable weather. The best
climate he felt was in California, and he
says the prettiest scenery he saw was in
the same state on the road to Portland
through tlie Sacramento valley, around
and overshadowed by old Shasta.
He was disappointed in one particu
lar, he could not tell the people any
thing about California. This country
has been so well advertized, and people
have been so eager to learn of it, that
he found most of the easterners knew as
much of the state, if not more, than he
A Boy Dies Under Peculiar Circum
Coroner Weldon held an inquest yes
terday at San Gabriel upon the body of
Bartolo San Miguel, a native of Califor
nia, 10 years of age, who died on Wed
nesday night from natural causes.
From the testimony taken before the
jury it was learned that the boy, who
had been sick for the past four weeks,
became so much worse on Monday that
his father summoned Dr. D. B. Van
Slyck, of Pasadena. On his arrival the
physician found the boy unconscious and
paralyzed on his right side. Upon diag
nosing the case, he came to the conclusion
that the patient was suffering from
cerebro spinal meningitis, and that there
was very little hope of his re
covery. He so informed the boy's
parents, and on his next visit on
the following day pronounced the case
beyond human aid. The boy's mother
and aunt stated that the father had
whipped and kicked him ; but this was
denied by the father, when examined
subsequently by the coroner. A very
loose state of morals was elicited from
the testimony of the latter, who stated
that he had not lived with his wife for
nearly a year, during which time he

had cohabited with two women, one of
whom was at present living with him.
The jury returned a verdict in accord
ance with the facts.
The Valuation Amounts to For y Seven
The city clerk has finished the footing
of the assessment rolls, with the follow
ing result, as compared with last year:
Heal estate $31,075,937 $33,675,740
Improvements 8,859,190 10,577,425
Money 211,387 202,730
Personal property 3,993,407 2,790,295
Miscellaneous 131,095 26,510
Total $44,871,075 $47,272,700
Total after equalization $16,999,101
It is thought that the rate this year
will be somewhere in the neighborhood
ot $1.25 on each $100. The council will
probably fix the rate for ordinary ex
penditures at $1, as allowed by the char
ter. Outside of this either five or six
| cents will be allowed for the parks under
I the state law, and the balance, twenty
cents, will go towards the funds for the
payment of interest and installments on
the bonds sold. The city funds are
already short some $50,000, and before
collections are made another $50,000
will be added to the minus side of the
balance sheet. The city auditor is busy
in preparing his estimate for the tax
levy as required by the charter, and the
matter will probably be discussed in
council next month.
A Water Bill.
Shortly after 0 o'clock last night J.
W. Patillo, a cement dealer, and F. West,
collector for the Los Angeles Water Com
pany, became involved in an altercation
over a water bill, on the dummy of a
cable car on Broadway. The car was
stopped and the men put off by the con
ductor, whereupon the combatants ad
journed to the sidewalk in front of the
city hall, and Patiilo was disfiguring
West's face in an artistic manner when
Sergeant Jeffries, of the police force, put
in an appearance, and after separating
the combatants, took both to the police
station and charged them with disturb
ing the peace. West was bleeding pro
fusely from a cut under the right eye,
while Patillo complained of a split lip.
Both were subsequently released upon
depositing bail in the sum of $10 each.
CONTINUED INCREASE IN ATTEND
ANCE AND INTEREST.
Three Lectures a Day and Many Classes.
A Good Programme Today—Special
The crowd continues to come out with
unabated interest to all the lectures of
the day, though their number has in
creased. The instruction of some of the
classes is in the nature of lectures, and
large numbers not enrolled as pupils at
tend the classes, note-book in hand, and
are insatiable in their pursuit of knowl
edge. It is impossible to successfully
compute the present population of Long
Beach, but inquiry elicits the fact that
every lodging and apartment house
is filled to its utmost capacity, and cot
beds in halls and tents are at a pre
mium. Yesterday morning two full
carloads of passengers came to Long
Beach on the morning train, and an
other carload came on the noon train.
The departures from the beach were out
of all proportion tothe arrivals.
Great preparations are being made for
the exercises today. A most excellent
programme has been prepared and a
great crowd is expected, especially as
the special train will enable all to return
the same day or night.
The lecture of Dr. Dobbs on Wednes
day evening was most interesting. A
pleasing feature was the introduction
upon the platform of fifteen gentlemen
and ladies, attired in the characteristic
costumes of the land about which he
Rev. Selah Brown interested a full
house on Mexico yesterday morninu,
drawing comparisons between the
country in 1884 and at the present day.
Angelefios who have heard Rev. Brown
will not need to be told that the lecture
was a good one.
The cooking class was a large one yes
terday, and Mrs, Knight, as she stepped
upon the platform at 1:45, smiled as she
noticed that the attendance at her lec
ture on bread-making was not altogether
ladies. The lecture was interesting,
and, with its practical demonstrations,
progressed rapidly to the accompani
ment of rapidly moving pencils over
scores of note-books.
The lecture on "Echoes from Gettys
burg" was delivered in Dr. Young's
most entertaining style, and made plain
by the large maps or diagrams of the
battle-field. The reverend gentleman's
former lectures had prepared his
audience for something good, and they
were not disappointed.
The evening was enlivened with much
good music, and an hour was devoted to
James Whitcomb Riley, under the
leadership of Prof. Virgil Pinkley.
Mr. Hankey, of Santa Ana, is spending
a couple of weeks with his family on the
Prof. Hirst arrived yesterday, and will
present the diplomas today at the 11
The popular hour for a bath is at 4
o'clock, and at that time there is a good
crowd on the beach.
The banquet tonight will take place at
the lowa villa. The music will be sup
plied by the Cuthbert band.
There was an importation of mos
quitoes on Sunday last, and the human
inhabitants are thinking of appealing to
the authorities for their suppression
under the act forbidding the importa
tion of alien labor.
The yacht Nellie made its appearance
close in yesterday morning with a large
party on board. There was a good sail
'md breeze and the yacht made a pretty
pictuie as it maneuvered close to the
shore in plain sight oi all.
Keeping House Witli Cockroaches,
Beetles, water bugs, etc., is not pleasant. The
most effective anil permanent remedy is—for
two or three nights—to sprinkle ROUGH ON
KATS dry powder unmixed, in, about and
down the sink and drain pipe; scatter it well
but thinly over the sink. First thing in the
morning wash it all away down the drain pipe,
whon all the insects from garret to cellar will
disappear. The secret of this is In the fact that
wherever the bugs or insects may be during the
day, they must go to the sinks lor water during
the night. They can't stand ROUGH ON* KATS.
In their water. This is the quickest, most ef
fective and satisfactory remedy. ROUGH ON
RATS being a poison, it should be used in this
way only at night and washed away early In
the morning. Another way is to mix a table
spoonful of ROUGH ON RATS with a half
pojnd of brown sugar. Sprinkle it on rear of
cupboard shelves or on plates, or on sheets of
paper placed high out of reach cf children.
Cut this out for directions.
Use "German Family" soap.

Second Vice-President Germain called
the meeting of the chamber of commerce
directors to order yesterday afternoon.
Captain Barrett, as chairman of the
committee appointed to purchase a
horse, reported that a very fine animal
had been obtained for $05.
There was some inquiry as to the
financial condition of the chamber, and
Secretary Patton stated that money
would be found in every fund after all
bills bad been paid. Captain Barrett
introduced a motion, which was adopted,
instructing the secretary and treasurer
to make semi-monthly reports of the
finances to the directors, beginning
with the next meefing.
The matter of selecting two represen
tatives to the convention of world's fair
delegates, which will meet in San Fran
cisco on September llth, then came up.
There was not much discussion about it,
however, for Director Wells came to his
feet with a motion that the secretary
cast a ballot for Major E. AY. Jones and
Hon. Eugene Germain.
Captain Barrett thought that it was
time for the chamber to take some action
about preparing for the Chicago world's
fair, and proposed another motion,
which was adopted, to the effect that the
secretary be instructed to send a circu
lar letter to each member of the cham
ber, requesting their attendance at a
special meeting of the chamber, to be
held on Saturday afternoon, July 20th,
at 1 o'clock, for the purpose of organiz
ing a committee to take the initiatory
step towards gaining united action from
Southern California localities.

AROUND THE WORLD.
The Journey that Frank Schumacher
Has Returned From.
Frank Schumacher has been around
the world. He did not make a race of
it, for he left Los Angeles for the east
on April 11, 1889, and he came back
from the west just a few days ago. In
fifteen months' traveling a young Amer
ican can see a great deal, learn a great
deal and enjoy a great deal; all of this
Mr. Schumacher did. He started out
With Mr. Stassforth. Mr. Stassforth
has returned also, and has not grown an
inch since he went away. The two met j
Percy and Jack Griffith in London, and :
the quartette did Europe very thor
oughly and returned to London again.
Then Mr. Schumacher set out for Spain, j
and in Barcelona he turned a callc cor- |
ncr suddenly and ran into good Father
Peter Verdaguer, and all through Spain
and Italy and Palestine he watched over
the young man.
At Jerusalem a party was made up to
visit the Jordan. The guides took them
to the exact spot in the river where
Cnrist was baptized. They have all his
torical spots plainly marked in these \
historical regions. The young men con- j
siderately erected a temporary altar, and
the good father had the pleasure of say
ing mass in that hallowed spot.
Mr. Schumacher visited every country
in Europe, and every city of any conse
quence. He was systematic in sight
seeing. For example, he began at the i
south of Ireland and traveled from east
to west until he reached the giant's
causeway. The nearest approach to
Southern California weather he found in
Japan, but in no land did he
find so many good qualities as j
exist ih this city. He is as glad to be
back as his friends are to see him. He j
is not a bit injured by the experience.
He does not wear an eye-glass or a lisp;
he is as free from being an anglo-maniac
as a Native Son of the Golden West can
be. He never forgot that he was an
American, and on the Fourth of July a '
year ago he and his companions deter
mined to celebrate, and purchased some
ireworks. They were at Bergin in Scan
dinavia, and they waited for the shades
of night so as to display their sky I
rockets and patriotism, but though they |
staid there three days, the darkness j
never came; it was of the mid
night Bun, and the nearest approach to j
night was two hours of twilight out of I
The American display at the Paris j
exposition Mr. Schumacher found to be j
entirely inadequate; Guatemala and
other "little South American countries I

Mr. Schumacher says he is glad to be j
back to Los Angeles; wants never to
live in any other place; saw nothing to
compare with it while away as a desir
able place of residence, and intends to !
spend his life here.
THE GRAIN CROP.
A Falling Off From Last Year's Har
"Jim" Melius was asked about grain
yesterday by a Herald reporter. He
ought to know the situation, for he keeps
well informed, and this is what he said:
"The crop this year will be just about
half what it amounted to laßt year.
There was so much rain last winter that
a large extent of land could not be
plowed. What would I estimate the
crop in Southern California at? Well, I
should say that including the San Jacinto
valley the output of barley will be from
800,000 to 900,000 sacks, and of wheat
about 500,000 to 600,000 sacks. That is
about half the crop we had last year.
But prices, 1 think, will rule high," and
the quality of the grain will be better
than last year.

To Decide Whether It Shall Go Into
The first brigade officers are requested
by Gen. E. P. Johnson to meet at his
headquarters in the Broadway armory
on Saturday evening. The question as
to whether the Seventh regiment will go
into camp or not this season will be con
sidered. It is not considered probable
that the boys will have any outing this
year, as regimental matters are in an
unsettled condition, owing to Governor
Waterman not having acted yet on Col.
Russell's appeal from the decision of the
court-martial which dismissed him from
the service. While there is uncertainty
about this matter, the officers do not
feel like undertaking any extensive
Captain and Adjutant A. M. Green, of

of increasing business interests.
