tary order of the Loyal Legion. To do

partment of Arizona, there were pres

and Lieutenant George H. Gilbert.
General E. P. Johnson, commander of
the N. G. C. of Southern California, at
. 8:30 entered the drawing room with
General McCook and introduced each
one of the members of the Legion pres
ent to him. After some conversation
the whole party marched to the dining
room, where a cold collation was served.
Soon after coffee had been served Major
C. C. Allen, who acted as toast master,
proposed the health of the president,
which was responded to by Major J. A,
The next toast: "The Army and the
Navy of the United States," was re
sponded to by Lieutenant C. B. Baker,
U. S. A.
General A. MeD. McCook responded
to the toast: "Our Honored Guest, the
Commander of the Department of Ari
zona." He said that it was not an easy
task for him to give the proper thanks
for the kind of a reception tendered him
by men who had stood side by side at
the bivouac and the battle-field. He
felt gratified when he came here to find
so many companions of the order of the
Loyal Legion in this city, and he be
lieved that the prosperity of Los Angeles
was a cause of this condition. The gen
eral referred to the rebellion and be
lieved that if it had succeeded the liber
ty of the world would absolutely have
been snuffed out. The war having re
sulted in the way it did,made it possible
for the speaker and the members of the
legion to meet the way they now did. He
thanked his hosts. In the mind of the
general there was as much use of culti
vating patriotism today by means of the
Legion, the G. A. R., the Sons of Vet
erans and the W. R. corps as there was
in 1861. The general concluded by sing
ing the "Flag of Consolation." He was
hearlily applauded, and three cheers
were next given for the old flag.
"The staff of the department com
mander" drew out some very graceful re
marks from Major W. J. Volkmar. '
"The soldiers and sailors who have
passed over the river and rest under the
shades of the trees," was drank in si
Gen. H. G. Rollins responded to the
"Union veterans of the late war," and
Maj. J. E. McComas to "Southern Cal
ifornia, the home <»f the blessed."
Colonel Charles Treichel responded to
the toast proposed to the Soldier's home
of Southern California. In answer to
the sentiments "the army of the Cum
berland," Col onel H. G. Shaw said he
felt that he had had a new order of
knighthood conferred upon him in being
called on to speak for an army that
had written its own history in blood
from the Ohio river to tne sea. He
spoke in flattering terms of General Mc-
Cook's relations to that army, first as a
division commander and then as a corps
commander. The army of the Cumber
land ever cherished an affectionate feel
ing for General McCook, who had led its
first advance aud two of whose brothers
had fallen among its slain.
"The Press" was responded to by Colo
nel H. G. Otis, "Ihe Judiciary" by
Colonel G. Wiley Wells, and the "La
dies" by Captain W. H. Seamans.
The Club Forms a Political Military
The Colored Zouave Democratic club
met last evening in their new quarters
on Los Angeles near Third street. A
large attendance graced the gaily deco
rated rooms when Mr. Samuel Hazleton,
as temporary chairman, called the
meeting to order,
The election of permanent officers re
sulted as follows: President, Samuel
Hazleton; vice president, Harry Thurs
ton ; secretary, Chas Harper; treasurer,
H. Smith ; sergeant-at-arms, Wm. Boone.
The chair, after a few remarks, ap
pointed the following committees: On
constitution and by-laws, Harper, Has
kins and Thurston. Membership, Boone,
Smith and Haskins. Finance, Harper,
Thurston and Haskins. Chairman Haz
leton was elected ex-officio chairman of
the various committees.
The club then formed itself into a mil
itary organization" and |elected* the fol
lowing officers : Captain, Sam. Haskins ;
lieutenant, Wm. Boone; sergeant-
S. Pazleton; corporal F. Allen.
At the conclusion of the election,
President Hazleton made an eloquent
speech in which he gave his reasons
for being a Democrat. He compared
the Republican party of 1800 with the
same party of today and the manner
of legislation of Lincoln's time with the
legislation of today. In reviewing the
Lodge force bill he stated that the
negroes were opposed to any such in

showed the ingratitude of the Republi
can party to one of its founders when it
permitted his widow to suffer for want
of the necessaries of life.
In concluding his oft applauded speech,
he predicted for the Democratic party a
sweeping victory. Short addresses were
then made by Captain Haskins, J. W.
Smith, 11. Thurston. O. C. Crowley, C.
Harper and Wm. Boone.
IN THE SOUP.
R. A. Ling Gives Mr. Hardesty a
There was fun at the Lockwood trial
yesterday. Mr. Hardesty represented
the district attorney's office, assisted by
Alex. Campbell. The Messrs. Shin &
Ling defended the alleged culprit. Har
desty is a candidate for nomination lor
the office of district attorney on the Re.
publican ticket. His prospects have
been said to be good up to this time; but
after the roasting R. A. Ling
gave him yesterday few will be able to
read Hardesty's title to the place. Ling
did score him unmercifully until tbe
able representative of the district at
torney's office squirmed. The fact is
Ling carried the war into Africa and
put Hardesty on trial instead of Lock
wood. To cap the climax, Ling cau
tioned the jury not to make a mistake by
acquitting the prosecuting attorney, as
that would not be in accordance with
the facts in the case as they were
developed in the testimony. Ling
claimed that the evidence showed that
the district attorney's able assistant
had suppressed testimony and tried to
induce Constable Vignes to swear to a
complaint which was not true.
Ling then came to the friend
ship of Lockwood and that other
noble Republican ex-official, Dam
ron, and compared them to Damon
and Pythias, and to David
and Jonathan. He actually wrung tears
of sympathy from half the jury in the
box. He then returned to his monotones
and convulsed the whole jury with
laughter as he again roasted Hardesty
oyer a hot fire of irony and sarcasm.
Ling talked foran hour and kept fanning
the flames under the representa
tive of the district attorney's of
fice most of the time. Hardestv
had sneered at Ling because he had
made mattresses here in Los Angeles.
Ling referred to Garfield prodding
mules on a'canal tow-path, and to Lin
coln splitting rails in the backwoods of
Illinois. He did not refer to Col. Mark
ham going barefoot to milk the cows
in the early mornings, and claimed
he ought for these weighty reasons to
be elected governor of the state, but he
did say that as Lincoln and < iarfield had
reached the white house in spite of such
humble honest fields of endeavor, that
there was no disgrace in making mat
tresses provided they were made well,
and sold for what they were worth. He
insisted that a good mattress maker was
doing more honorable work than a poor
district attorney could do.
A Number of Notes of Progress and
The boom is surely coming, and that
very soon, if the signs of the times may
be relied upon. About two months ago
University was a quiet place—a very
quiet place—with not much doing.
Since about a month ago there has been
a decided change. Houses are rapidly
filling up, and the streets present a live
ly appearance. Lots are changing hands
here and there, and many inquiries are
being made for property. The Univer
sity opened last week with brighter
prospects than ever before. A large num
ber of new students with many of the
familiar faces are here. The much talk
ed of City Electric railroad will include
this locality in its lines, and thereby
give us closer connection with the city.

HE WAS BAD AT SCHOOL.
But He Suicided Rather Than Be
Thrashed By His Father.
George S. Knowlton was until Mon
day a school boy at Anaheim. He was
not a very good boy, very few healthy
boys are, and the teacher sent complaints
of George's mischievous conduct to his
parents. His father was away at Santa
Ana, but his mother told George that
when he returned he would give him a
thrashing. George was a good boy in
one way, for li£ worked; he carried
newspapers when he got out of school,
and after his mother gave him the infor
mation that be was to be whipped, he
wentonhis newspaper rounds, stopped
at a neighbors and borrowed some
strychnine "to kill gophers." George
went home, took the poison, and before
help could be given him, he died after
HER BLUE EYE BLACKED
A FEMININE PASSAGE AT ARMS IN
THE WILSON BLOCK.
A Pretty Girl and an Elderly Lady Meet
by Chance—An Impromptu Sparling
Match Which Causes Some Excitement.
A feminine passage atjarms occurred
Tuesday morning in the Wilson block.
A young lady, a typewriter of very at
tractive appearance, went to the office
of Attorney Holcomb, but rinding that
it had not yet been opened, passed oi to
a hallway to wait until the person she
wished to see arrived.
In a few moments a rather elderly
lady made her appear, n:e and tried (o
enter Mr. Holcomb's otnee, and finding
it still unoccupied she walned
on to the hallway to W.iit.
As she turned the corner she
saw the pretty girl. She evidently re
cognized her, and more evidently had a
strong antipathy for her, for'with a
clever upper cut with her right she
landed on the fair damsel's left sparkling
blue optic. The blow knocked the girl
into Dr. Babcock's office and she was
protected from further attacks. The
elderly lady turning saw Mr. Holcomb
coming upstairs bearing a large and
handsome bouquet, and the war was re
newed again, but the well known at
torney got the lady into his office nnd
held a long consultation with her. The
pretty girl fled.
The Chief Instructed to Prevent the

The police commissioners at the meet

. > An Interesting Engagement.
A great deal of interest centers in the
engagement of Maude Granger at the
Grand next Monday and Tuesday. It will
be the lady's first appearance here; but
everybody has heard of Maude Granger
and everybody will want to see her.
Her new play, "Inherited," is credited
with giving her the strongest emotional
role she has ever been seen in. Oonsid- 1
ering her notable successes in such plays,
as "The Creole," "Camille," "Frou-
Frou," and others of that calibre, this
is certainly saying a great deal. Her
engagement in San Francisco during the
past two weeks has proved one of the
emphatic successes of the season, and
crowded the Bush street theatre nightly.
We have been visited by Fanny Daven
port, Rose Coghlan, Kate Claxton and
other favorites, and now comes Miss
Granger, one of the most popular of
these favorites in the east, and in a play
that has been endorsed by the press of
Paris and New York.
Mr. Henry E. Diey and His Company of
The popular comedian, Mr. Henry
E. Diey and his merry burlesquers,
are announced for the last four nights
of next week. Although he brings
'Adonis' again, which found such a
royal welcome on its presentation here
three years ago, he will also be seen in
his latest production, the "Seven Ages,"
a more elaborate and artistic affair, by
far, according to the eastern critics.
The scenery for both productions is
carried entire and the performances
are promised to be identical in every
way with those given in New York and
San Francisco. The company which
number fifty-five people, includes most
of thejold favorites seen here on the last
engagement of the company. The
most prominent names are George
Howard, George Schellcr, Herbert
(ireshman, Miss Ycenle Wallace, Carrie
E.Perkins, Minnie Miller, Mac Branson,
Emma Mulle and others.
Two Street Questions Looked Into
The council yesterday inspected the
talked of extension of Wall street from
Mayo to Second. The street commis
sion assessed the damages at $30,813,
though the route extends mainly
through abandoned orchards, and is
only 400 or 500 feet long. The street
commission insists that a bill of $700
for salaries and expenses in making
the survey, be paid.
The council then went to Denver ave
nue to investigate a protest on assess
ments for street work. It is probable
that the commission will be sustained
in this matter.

the city so late that further particulars
could not be secured.
STILL TONGUE TIED.
NO SOLUTION OFTHE DYER-TAYLOR
The Only People Who Know Will Not
Tell—Dyer will Probably Secure His
Bail Today—Taylor in a Precarious
Why did Frank Dyer shoot James
Taylor? The solution of that enigma
is as far away as ever. A great many
people profess to know, and all sorts of
theories are advanced. There are at
least four who know. These are Mr.
I and Mrs. Frank Dyer, Jamea Dyer and
i Taylor. Not one of these people can be
i induced to throw any light on the sub
| ject. The story published in the Ex
j press yesterday, to the effect that Taylor
was a suitor for the hand of Miss Priest
jat the same time Frank Dyer was pres
sing his suit, cannot becorrect, as Taylor
has already stated that he did not know
' Mrs. Dyer before she was married.
I Tbe circumstances which eventually
led to the shooting, in all probability,
! started at the St. George's hotel, South
Riverside. This hotel was the rendez
vous for the colony, and the Taylor and
Dyer families probably first became
acquainted there,, although they all
originally came from Nebraska.
Dyer expects to be liberated today, as
his attorney had yesterday secured fif
teen out of the necessary twenty thou
sand dollars. He was visited yesterday
|by his father, and Mrs. Dyer also spent
; the best part of the day conversing with

The happy Italian on whom Dame Fortune so
unexpectedly smiled for over a year past has
earned a scanty competency for his wife and
three children by freighting cargoes of fruit

occupy a stand on the corner of Washington

invest a dollar in "la lotterie," as the Italians
call it, and last month his coupon bore the
lucky number, 51,170, which drew the first cap

THE CutiXTEK DKT »OCI>B HOUSE.
Never in the history of this house has so much thought, time and expense
been so willingly given to the purchase of Fall Goods as there has been this sea
son. Two buyers sought the market this fall, and have given their un
divided attention to the purchases. We can truly say no labor nor pains has been
spared in accomplishing our one object, and that was to give tbe ladies of this
community an equal chance with their sisters on the Atlantic coast, of having the
pick and choice of the Novelties in Dry Goods. We didn't rush in the market and
buy any and everything and pay large prices, but simply worked and used our
brains in selections. If you buy too early you don't get the choicest novelties and
you pay too much. Don't, ladies, be in a hurry to buy for you will surely repent
at your leisure, unless you have visited our house. We are sure to please you with
style, quality and price. This is no idle talk ; but you can't afford to purchase
anything until you visit us. Our Novelties are select in style and texture; our
prices are lower than ever. For two reasons we claim this: First, it is our aim
to handle a larger quantity than ever; second, we have bought our goods as low as
cash would purchase, and we had the market and cash to command only the low
est prices from the importer.
Rough Btuffs in mixed, plain and plaids have the preference in everything in
woolen goods. Plushes, especially, are to be used in a variety of forms in trim
ming; Astrachans are affected in many ways for trimming; Velvets, embroidered
are used for Gigot sleeves, black grounds with colored figures have the preference.
Plain Velvets and Velveteens are used extensively; Fringes and hand-made
Silk Trimmings, with and without cut beads, are very popular, and the best styles
are scarce. AYe are showing a large line in Scotch, English, and French Plaids, in
Serges and Plain Cloths. Broadcloths are more popular than ever for Tailor Made
Costumes. In plain goods, Henriettas, Serges and Whipcords have sway for light
materials, while for rough effects Cheviots Homespun and Aldine Suitings have
come to the front for street dresses. English Corduroys are the rage for traveling
and carriage dresses, and are effected by the bon ton classes. Cloakings are shown
in rough effects. Now a few words about Black Goods, as in the Colored Goods,
rough effects, such as Homespuns, Cheviots and Camels hair are the correct.
For Black Goods in smooth effects we are showing Broadcloths, English Cloths,
Serges, Whipcords, Broad Wales, Plaids,stripes, Rip Reversible Cords, Henriettas,
Raystines, Biarritz and Sebastopol.
We have many new things in Silk and Woolen Goods to mention, but our
space forbids. Come and see these handsome goods, and don't buy until you have
visited our elegant stock. Remember, quality superb, quantity largest, prices
