IT IS FINISHED.
The Republican Convention at Last Adjourns. A Number of Disgruntled Can didates the Result. The Pumpkin Rollers Continue To Be Victorious. Nominations Made for the Assembly, Sen ate, Township and City Justice Courts Officials—The Ticket Completed. The Republican convention com menced its session very tamely yester day morning at 9:30. A large number of delegates were absent, and there was no lobby to speak of. The gallery was graced by about five ladies, and nearly sixty men up there also took in the pro ceedings. The nominations for senator ial and assembly candidates was the first matter submitted to the delibera tion of the convention. Judge Variel '"'nominated, for the Thirty-eighth sena torial district, James R. Finlayson, and Chairman Gage nominated R. B. Car penter. This last nomination was re ceived with applause. The cry of "five dollars" immediately arose, and the candidates pungled up. Chairman Cage introduced Mr. Finlayson to the convention in the following words: "Gentlemen, I have the honor of intro ducing to you James R. Finlayson. He has paid his five dollars, and is entitled to be heard for five minutes." The gist of Judge Carpenter's talk was that he was not pledged to Senator Stanford, as had been said of him. He denied that he was pledged| to anybody so far. Carpenter received 144 votes, and Finlayson 91. The nomination of Mr. Carpenter was made unanimous. For the representativeof the Seventy seventh assembly district there were more candidates. Walter S. Moore was the prime favorite from the beginning and Frank P. Kelly filled up the tail end of the contest. The ballot resulted in the gallant colonel of the fire brigade obtaining 113 votes, C. W. Pendleton 38, Frank C.Prescott 12, and the able prose cutor of criminals a cool 10. The next nomination was that of assemblyman for the Seventy-sixth assembly district. The candidates were Captain F. A. clarion of Vernon, of the "Evening Express" office, Hiram A. Unruh, luperintendent of the Santa Anita ranch, and W. 11. Mace and J. A. Buch anan. OneJ of the. features of Mr. Marion's speech was that he would to any further reduc tion of Los Angeles county. Judge Mace did not proclaim himself as a distinguished warrior, whose record was worthy of recognition at the hands jf the convention, but he honestly ad iiitted that he had paid $41)0 for a sub ititute during the civil war. His war ding had been a bloodless one, all for the Republican party, ever since the late .inpleasantness terminated. An excited delegate here got up and laid thut he arose to a question of prh - lege. Acting Chairman Lewis —"State the mestion." Mr. McCoy of the Third—"What be :ame of the substitute?" Judge Mace (dramatically)—"He died for his country." (Laughter). J. A. Buchanan's greatest claim to •ecognition seemed to be that he ivas the father of live stalwart sons who irote the Republican ticket in this county. After the balloting terminated, fudge Mace's substitute for candidate to the assembly turned out to be Captain Marion, the school trustee and church 2lder of Vernon district. The $400 sub stitute received only five votes. The ballot stood as follows: Marion, 76; Buchanan, 81 J Unruh, 29; "Mace, 5. Captain Marion's nomination was, on motion of Buchanan, of Pasadena, made unanimous. The convention shortly afterwards adjourned till one o'clock, without achieving any more work. Afternoon Session. In order to accelerate matters as much as possible, the hour for reconvening had been set for 1 p. m., but at that time there were not more than fifty del egates present. These, however, were gradually reinforced as the tardy ones dribbled in, and at 1:15 o'clock when Chairman Gage pounded the table for order, there were fully two hundred and fifty present. At the request of the chairman, C. W. Pendleton, secretary of the county central committee, read the list of the precincts in the first supervisorial dis trict, and on motion of G. H. Peck, of El Monte, the delegates from that dis trict proceeded to the rooms of the County Republican club for the purpose of nominating a candidate from that dis trict. The country delegates left in a body, and Chairman Gage ordered the conven tion to proceed with the regular order of business. W. H. Thomas then nominated, in a brief but eloquent speech, E. E. Gal breth as a candidate for the office of jus tice of the peace, in and for Los Angeles township. This nomination was sec oned by Dr. Sinsabaugh, C. M. Wells, S. A. Garrett and H. A. Barclay. W, T. Williams placed in nomina tion |the name of Louis Stanton, in a lengthy eulogistic speech, in which he stated that the present clean and peace able condition of the city was due to the manner in which he 'dealt with the criminal element during the two years he was in office as police judge. The nomination was seconded by J. Frank enfield, Dr. McGowan, G. M. Holton and F.M. Kelsey. S. A. Garrett having retired from the contest the nominations were closed and the candidates stepped up and deposited their respective fees. On motion of W. W. Murphy of the .Ninth, the candidates were excused from the onerous duty of speech-making in order to save time. The roll was then called and the first ballot resulted asfollows: L. Stanton, 96 E. E. Galbreth, 72, S. A. Garrett, 5. J2Total vote cast, 173; necessary for a choice 83. The declaration |of the nom ination of L. Stanton was received with enthusiastic cheers, which" were repeat ed when W. H. Thomas, on behalf of E. E. Galbreth, thanked that gentleman s friends for their support, and moved that Stanton's nomination be declared unanimous. The next order of business was that of nominating candidates for the office of township constable. W. E* Dunn opened the ball by nom inating H. 8. Clement, who was second «ed by J. Frankenfield and G. M. Holton. C. W. Pendleton nominated Fred C. THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1890. Smith, who was seconded by R. H. Sla ten of the Seventh ward. W. H.

MONSIEUR VIOLE Makes a Statement Regarding the Affair Raynal. An item appeared in yesterday's Hf.r ali) respecting an altercation which took place on Friday between two represent ative citizens of the French colony. Mr. Viole, editor of the Progres, sends the following communication to the Herald respecting the matter: EDITORS Herald: In this morning's Herald there appeared an article in which my name is mentioned. I resented the insulting language which Mr. Raynal employed concerning me, but I did not, want to strike him on account of his age, and particularly because of his poor health. Beating a man under such conditions would have been cowardice. Such con duct would not be tolerated by nos masurs francaises. I believe therefore that every honorable man would have acted as I did in this case. Yours respectfully, Viole Editor of "Le Progres." Mr. Viole 1 yesterday caused the arrest of Mr. Raynal on a charge of disturbing the peace. SOLDIERS' DISCHARGES. The Manner in Which They Shall Hereafter be Made. The acting secretary of war has de cided that the amountof purchase mon ey of a discharged soldier shall be com puted from the date of his actual dis charge, the computation to be made by full months, fractions to be excluded; which means that when a soldier has served one year nine months and a fraction, such fraction, whatever it be, shall be ignored, and he shall receive credit only for one year and nine months, thus requiring'him to deposit $75 tor fifteen months for the purchase of his discharge. MARRIAGE LICENSES. People Who are Legaliy Permitted to Wed. Otto B. Strobel, 28, of California, was yesterday granted a license to wed Miss" Julia Fester, 29, of Michigan.

Some Frenchman has taken advantage of the little newspaper quarrel which has been going on in the Progres Cal ifornien, between John Peter Goytino and Jose Mascarel, to commit a forgery. The joker does not seem to realize that he has made himself amenable to the law by signing, even'in a deliber ately incorrect way, the name of two persons who have no connection with the squabble and have no interest with it, either way. The letter addressed to Mr. Mascarel is dated the 25th of Sep tember, and is to the following effect: Mr. Jos6 Mascarel: We have learned that you had the in tention to call us out to a deadly duel by means of cavalry swords. We are entirely disposed to place ourselves at your disposition for the hour and day upon which it will suit you to try your old courage. For T. Goytino. A. Carre,) witnesses. E. Okley,\ Neither Einile Quarre, of the Demo cratic county central committee, or Frank Oakley, a reporter on the Herald, who are the men it was intended Mr. Mascarel should consider as the signers of the silly manifesto, knew a word about it, and they are both indignant that their names should have been used, even though misspelled. Mr. Goytino also disclaims any knowledge oi the foolish letter. Mr. Mascarel, it was stated, was very wroth at the epistle, and although now pretty aged, said that no challenge should reach him tliat re mained unanswered. As to his age and trembling hand he wished that revolvers should be substituted to cavalry sabiea, and then he would meet his foe at any time and in any place. When it dawned upon the mind of Mr. Mascarel that he, as well as the immaculate John Peter, were the victims of a joke, he felt mad der still because it is impossible to find out who the joker is. RAISINS. A Fine Exhibit of Raisins From Hesperia. Judge Widney showed us a small consignment of muscat grapes and rai sins sent to him from Hesperia. The raisins are large, finely-colored and rich in sugar. The grapes are large, plump, solid and very sweet. The flesh is com pact and the absence of water or watery juice gives evidence of ample substance to make raisins that are large above the average. There are about two hundred acres of grapes planted out. The sample in view yesteVday was from vines that were set out in 1888, and this is the first crop they have borne. One ad vantage the raisin-growers will have in Hesperia, is that the grapes ripen there from two to four weeks earlier than in the valleys. This is an important point in their favor, for they will be assured against possible rains by coming to maturity before the rains have set in, even in a phenomenally early rainy season. There are about 30,000 acres in the colony of Hesperia, and all the land is well suited for the cultivation of the vine. The colonists are satisfied that they have a most superior raisin-grow ing locality, and from the sample ex hibited yesterday we have no doubt their anticipations will be realized. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. They Want to Know the Cost of Next Year's Government. The report of A. E. Davis in reference to the Smith crossing on the old San Gabriel river near Downey, was received. No action was taken. On motion of jSuper visor Rowan the county apditor was requested to furnish the board to morrow! with an estimate of the apiount of money required for the expense of the county during the criminal fiscal year. | FRANK, OBIT * CO.
