AT THE FAIR.
COLONEL MARKHAM ATTENDS AND MAKES A SPEECH. f The Features of Last Evening's Enter tainment—The Governor-Elect Given a Pleasant Reception. The attendance at the chrysanthemum fair was unusually large last night, in spite of the wet and unpromising state of the weather, the announcement that Colonel H. H. Markham, of Pasadena, was to be present having attracted a number of visitors who would otherwise have remained at home. Elegant as the decorations have been heretofore, the display last night eclipsed all former efforts, everything having been renewed and rearranged to do honor to the governor-elect. A 8 o'clock every seat in the galleries was occupied, and ladies and gentlemen gathered in little groups near the doors, outside of which two companies of the Seventh infantry, N. G. C, were drawn up in line. Some twenty minutes later Arend's orchestra rendered, See the Conquering Hero Comes, and, heralded by a fanfare of bngles, Colonel Markham, accompanied by Brigadier General Johnson, "followed by his staff, marched into the hall. Their appearance was signalled by a burst of enthusiastic cheering.which was kept up until the party reached the platform. Brigadier General Johnson then ad dressed the audience briefly as follows: Ladies and gentlemen: This is no time for speech making, but rather one of rejoicing. We have just passed through a great battle, and have with us this evening the gentleman who car ried our banner to victory. It affords me great pleasure to introduce to you Colonel H. H. Markham, the governor elect of California. Colonel Markham, who was very warmly received, then made a brief ad dress. He said that he supposed he had made his last speech a few nights ago. and some of his friends at Pasadena had expressed their hope that he had. He had not been informed that he was ex pected to make a speech, but he was de lighted at being granted the privilege of meeting so many there last night. He was extremely gratified to see what had been done, and never saw anything to equal the display ot beautiful flowers be fore him in any other part of the state during his campaign tour. The ladies all along the line had seen to it that the platforms in the various towns should be decorated with flowers, and this formed quite a feature of the campaign. He then related a number of incidents in connection with the campaign; and spoke feelingly of the two "fairy high waymen" who escorted him into one of the northern towns. He then touched upon the purpose &f the fair, and eulogized the ladies of Southern California for their charitable deeds. In closing his address, he said he expected to become very efficient iv speech-making, if he lived for the next two years and attended every fair and entertainment he expected to have to do, and he agreed at the end of that time to deliver a speech here, so as to make amend for his labored effort last night. He said if he knew what to say and how to say it, he would get along famously, but at present he did not. He thanked his audience for the com- Eliment it had bestowed on him, and oped the fair would be crowned with success. At the close of his speech, Colonel Markham was gracefully presented by Miss Minnie Pal ;mer, on behalf of the ladies of the bontonniere booth, with an elegant bouquet of red roses, bound with rich white ribbon. The governor elect then took up a po sition in front of the platform and greeted the visitors as they tiled past him, and this ceremony having been concluded, he left the hall for the opera house. For the entertainment of the visitors after the departure of Col. Markham, an excellent musical programme was ren dered by Mrs. J. B. Brown, Mr. W. H. Brown. Miss A. Werner and Oscar Wer ner, Misses Clark, Stiles, Diffenbacher and Knighton, and C. A. Valentine, un der the direction of Mrs. Emily J. Val entine. The Arend orchestra also played a number of popular airs during the evening. For this afternoon's amusement a musical programme has been arranged, consisting of vocal solos by Miss L. H. Kimball and Mrs. Calkins; double duet by Misses Ellwood and Williams, Mrs. Healy aud Mr. Ward ; banjo solo by Mr. Mesac; piano solo by Miss A. Houser, and a recitation by Mr. G. A. Hough.

The English Syndicate and Their Schemes. The ways of the English syndicates that have appeared in this country dur ing the last ten years would puzzle the brains of a Philadelphia lawyer to And out. They are a mystery. It is alleged by those who have made a study of their method, by diligent inquiring among shrewd business men, that the business methods of the Britishers is somewhat like this: Some scheming promoter comes into a city and makes an offer for a brewery, for instance,without making much inquiry as to its real value. If he succeeds in inducing some brewer to go into the scheme, and an agreement as to price is reached, he capitalizes the affair at four times what he pays for the prop erty. He makes a small cash payment of about 5 per cent, of the purchase prico of the concern and gets a bill of sale, tho balance to be paid in thirty or sixty days. Then he goes into the same Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889. * /\MOiJOT£Df* pure' THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 1890. citv,induces the people to buy his stock, inflated to four times the cost of the property. The concern is called the English Brewing syndicate, a name as is seen, without capital. Actually only five per cent of the purchase price is put in by the so-called syndicate; the other ninety-five per cent, is the money of those drawn into the scheme. The promoter pockets all the money he pat in, a large sum besides, and leaves the brewery to be run by an agent. If the venture proves a success the greater part of the profits go to support the smart stockholders at Brighton, or some other luxurious watering place on the other side of the Atlantic. But if the business turn out a failure, the smart schemers lose nothing. It is the money of their American dupes which goes where the woodbine twineth, or that follows McUintv to the bottom of the sea. It is alleged that a shrewd scheme is now being worked to force Maier & Zo belein, the old-time respectable brewers of Los Angeles, to sell out. Many over tures aqp said to have been made to buy their brewery, but so far without result. Joe Maier is about as bull-headed as a Texas steer which comes under the hand of his brother, Simon Maier of the Cen tral market. When the promoter comes to him he answers : "No! our brewery is not for sale," in very emphatic terms. But the English brewing syndicate is said to have made their reply by lower ing the price of their beer. It is not as good an article as that made in the city; but the hope is that by lowering prices they will induce the saloon men to for sake Maier & Zobelein even at the risk of offering their custom ers to drink inferior beer. This is expected to force Maier & Zobelein to seii to the syndicate. Attempt after attempt is said to have been made, and the syndicate has sent the. shrewdest agent in its employ here to bring about the desired event. After the most per severing efforts one misguided saloon man was induced to buy the cheap beer, and he is heartily sorry for what he was misled to do. He found the beer, even at the reduced price, was not as profit able as the home brew. It does not compare in quality, he says, with the beer he has been using. He does not know if it is Wieland's, Fredericksburg or some other brew—a beer that no good judges would drink for years past. The former proprietor of the Fredericksburg is now the general manager of the syndi cate. The saloon-keeper states that the beerwas so warm when furnished tohim that he had to use so much ice to cool it that the cost was ereater than that of the superior beer of Maier & Zobelien. It is said to be the purpose of the syndicate to lower prices so as to put pressure on Maier & Zobelein, and force them to sell out. Of course it is well understood in the inner circles of the syndicate that these low prices will only be temporary, and that after they ac quire possession of the brewery here, they can make all the money back and 100 times more by raising prices as high as they please. Poor saloon keepers! If tlie English syndicate ever suc ceeds in getting up a monop oly here by the purchase of the Maier & Zobelein brewery.they will, it stands to reason, raise the price of beer to suit themselves, and the saloon men will be as much at their mercy as so many slaves. If the Baloon men lis ten to the stories of the agent sent out to work for the syndicate, they may live to rue it. It would be better for them to maintain a healthy competition by sustaining M-aier & Zobelein. The boys will stick to the old flag, and patronize home industry, if they have any regard for their own best interest. THE S. P. CO. SUED. An Assignee Wants Big Damages for Destroyed Property. The suit of E. J. Baldwin against the Southern Pacific company for $0971.34 damages, transferred from the superior court of Los Angeles county, is on trial in the U. S. district court. It is alleged that on July 9th, 1886, fire from oue of the defendant's engines burned the wheat of one A. Amar, near La Puente. The Hartford Fire Insurance company paid Amar's losses, and assigned its claim against the railroad company to plaintiff. The case will last several days. THE MATERIAL IS HERE, And the East Side Levee Will be Built at Onte. Hon. W. H. Workman told a Herald reporter yesterday that the first instal ment of material for the east side levee to be built by the Los Angeles 1 prminal railroad company, had arrived at Re dondo. Work will be commenced on the levee - at once at three points; at Kurtz street, at Macy street and at First street, so that the affair will be com pleted very rapidly; probably before any heavy rains occur. HARMONY. The Musicians' Union Strikes the Right Key. At a meeting of the Musicians' union, held at the Typographical union head quarters yesterday morning, nine new members were admitted, making the membership number fifty-three, with several applicants from this city and Pasadena. The union voted unani mously to send a volunteer band of musicians to the labor union mass meet ing at Turner hall next Wednesday evening.

LOOKING FOR A HARBOR. THE GOVERNMENT BOARD OF EN GINEERS ARRIVE. They Are Received at the Chamber of Commerce—At San Pedro and Long Beach Today—To Ballona on Monday- The board of engineers who are to se lect a aeep-water harbor between Point Duma and San Juan Capistrano arrived from San Francisco yesterday morning, and registered at the Westminster. The following gentlemen constitute the board: Colonel J. H. Mendell, Colonel W. H. 11. Benguard and Lieutenant- Colonel G. L. Giliespie. At 10:30 they repaired to the cham ber of commerce, where they were re ceived by Secretary Hanchette and the following delegation : D. Freeman, E. W. Jones, K. Kohn, J. H. Book, A. H. Denker, from the city; and from Long Beach, H. 0. Dillon, "W. W. Lowe, W. H. Mentzer, Thomas Stovell, C. I. Goucher, Matthew Pickles, C. E. Pit man, Dr. Cook, Jotliam Bixby; from Santa Monica, Abbot. Kinney, E. J. Vawter, E. H. Sweetser, J. I, Carriilo, W. S. Vawter and C. L. r'isher; from Ballona, Messrs. Eagles and Campbell; from San Pedro, N. O. Armstrong, An derson, A. W. Sepulveda, F. E. Doon feld, W. H. Savage and George H. Peck. Dr. J. P. Widney, having called the meeting to order, introduced Col, Men dell, who stated that the board's mission in Los Angeles was to locate a deep sea harbor at some point between San Juan and Duma. It was its intention to take the coast from San Pedro and San Juan, and then inspect the bays between San San Pedro and Point Duma. The board, although having the official maps of the coast between those points, was desirous of receiving suggestions from the various delegates aud the reasons tor which they were advocated, preferring, however, that they be made in writing. Although prepared to stay as long as it appears necessar}', the colonel said that the board desired to complete its work as soon as possible. C. Dillon presented the claims of Long Beach, Abbot Kinney those of Santa Monica, and Mr. Eagle those of the P allona, A petition from Redondo was likewise received. It was decided that the board should visit San Pedro and Long Beach today. At San Pedro the board will be received by a committee, consisting of Messrs. James Dodson, Dave Weldt and A. W. -epulveda, in accordance with the wishes of the people of that town. From San Pedro the board will proceed to Newport landing and San Juan, return ing tomorrow. On Monday Santa Mon ica, Ballona and Redondo will be visited. The survey will be made by land and water. Steamers have been placed at the disposal of the party, a 9 well as a yacht, the use of which was tendered by Captain Ainsworth. The meeting, which was a brief one, then adjourned. On Monday t'>e board will visit Bal lona harbor, which will conclude their labors. Two Miles a Minute Without Steam. Arunaway railroad train on the branch of the coast division from Aptos up to the Loma Prieta lumber mills created a sensation along the line of the road Sept. 1 IS. Eight empty cars broke loose from the engine at Monte Vista, abont eight miles north of Aptos. The road from Monte Vista to Aptos is a heavy down grade the entire distance, and the cars, soon after starting, attained a tremen dous rate of speed, and passed through Loma Prieta at a mile a minute. The flying cars kept on the track until they had gone the entire eight miles to Aptos. Here four of the cars turned on to the main track without damage, two running as far as the high bridge at the west end of Aptos, and the other two stopping near the station. The other four cars dashed off the track and were smashed into bits. How the cars kept on the track for eight miles at such a speed over a curv ing mountain road is wonderful. No one was on the train at the time it started, and no one was injured, the only loss being the four wrecked cars. Railroad men claim the train made the eight miles in four minutes. The down passenger train from Santa Cruz, bound for San Francisco, had a hairbreadth escape from destruction. The passenger train had passed the place where the runaway came onto the main line but a minute and a half previously. One of the wrecked cars struck a cypress tree forty feet high and a foot and a half in diameter and laid it flat, almost tear ing it from the ground.—Cor. San Fran cisco Chronicle. Naval Prize Money. Some interesting particulars in refer ence to the apportionment of naval prize money and bounties are contained in a return which has recently been printed by order of the house of commons. From this it appears that during the financial year 1889-90 the sum of £8.322 was paid over by the accountant general out of a total of £63,365, which has accrued dur ing the last thirty-eight years, Including shares allotted to the Naval Brigade fir services rendered during the Indian mutiny and booty gained during the Chineso war of the same decade. Of the balance, £47,500 has been paid over to the consolidated fund since 1805 in accordance with the act of parlia ment, and £7,513 remains in hand should claimants arise. A curious feature of the return is the fact that out of £20,150. the proceeds of captured slave dho\\3 during comparatively recent years, only £8,185 appears to have been claimed. The government percentage account shows a total of £13,161, and out of a balance in hand on April 1,1889, of £3,904 only 16a. 4d. seems to have been paid during the year on account of claims arising prior to 1865. The total sum transferred to the consolidated fund since 1855 is £83,500, in addition to £173, --000 referred to in the annual account for the year.—Galignani Messenger. Worthless Watermelons. During the season the watermelon business was the best it has ever been. Prices were high and sales large, foi melons have been better than usual this year. So good was the business that tbp river men who were engaged in bringing the melons went back to the York river region, down the bay, and brought large loads up there, expecting to realize j handsomely. Th«n the "cold isnap" set I in, and the molou operators were al] i dumped. At ono wharf on tho river | front there were 40,000 melons goiutf j begging at $1 to i$ a hundred, while earlier in the season tho same quality of melons sold easily for two or three times these prices. What a chance the Wash ington boarding house keepers had to "put up" watermelon rind preserves!— Washington Post. Ex-Senator Pomcroy's Big Hotel Bill. The judgment of $15,324.50 recently issued by the supreme court of Kansas in favor of the plaintiff in the case of E. A. Smith against S. E. Pomeroy dates back to 1873. Smith was proprietor of the old "Tefft house" in Topeka, where , Pomeroy made his celebrated unsuccess ful attempt to be re-elected United ' States senator. Pomeroy quartered his political friends at the "Tefft house" r during the campaign, creating a bill of ' $19,324.50. After his defeat Pomeroy paid Smith $4,000, claiming that was enough. Smith thereupon instituted proceedings in the district court of At chison county for the balance. The debt, including interest and costs, amounts to about $20,000.—5t. Loui3 Republic. THE REAR GUARD. (Continued from Page 1.) Soulti, and the boy died from the inju ries inflicted. One man took a piece of raw meat, because he was crazed with hunger, and for this he received 300 lashes. As soon as the man was able he ran away, but was captured and shot by Bartelot's orders." Stanley says Bonny told him, only a 1 short time ago, that" half the horrors that existed in that camp are not yet known. Stanley, when he returns to may bring action for libel against uarteiot's brother, iv order to have the matter sifted to the bottom. London, Nov. 6.—Troup's book adds little to the interviews already pub- ' lished. It credits Stanley with a pre conceived idea of the causes of the dis- 1 aster to the rear guard, and with the rejection as untrue of any statements ' failing to fit that idea. He enlarges , upon the difficulties of a young and inexperienced officer like Bartelot in dealing with the wily Tippoo Tib, whom Stanley himself was hardly able to man age, in addition to keeping control over a camp of natives. I roup quotes a letter from Stanley to Bartelot, in which Stanley expresses distrust of Tippoo ib. Troup says after seven and a hall months had passed, Bartelot and a sec tion of the expedition were willing to try to advance. The remainder, includ ing himself, dissented, because Stanley had impressed upon them the import ance of preserving the stores. He re peats that Bartelot had ample warnings of the danger he incurred in venturing out alone. I r Lieutenant Troup is inclined to acquit I TippooJTib of the charge of treachery, and thinks the latter met with consider able difficulty in collecting potters. The book consists largely of interesting de tails oi the experiences of the rear column y and Troup's correspondence with Stanley since the return of the ex pedition, BALFOUR IN IRELAND. An Irish Parliamentarian Making HU Stay Interesting. Dublin, Nov. 0. —In conversation with Balfour Mr. McNeal, a national member of parliament, told the chief secretary that all his efforts in regard to Ireland would prove fruitless, unless coercion was abolished. Balfour replied that the enthusiastic reception he had every where been accorded fully justified his Irish policy. While Balfour was addressing a depu tation today, McNeal began to address the people on the terrible barbarities of Balfour's rule. Balfour expressed sur prise at the intrusion of such matters on this occasion. He appealed to all to say whether the government projects Were not calculated to benefit Ireland more than all the speeches made. In a letter published this evening Mc- Neal challenges Balfour to dilate on the use of the battering ram in aacomplish ing eviction, in his utterances before Donegal audiences, as he boasted in parliament he would do.

Greever, a well-known cattle dealer, was shot and fatally wounded this afternoon by Chas. Clifford, a New York traveling sales man, atthe Hotel Andrew. Greever had paid considerable attention to Mrs. Clif ord,and her husband suspected that their relations were not entirely innocent. This afternoon he saw Greever enter his apartments, and, going up, tried to get into the room. The door was locked, and on trying it he heard a scuffle and then heard the key turn. When he rushed into the room Mrs. Clifford exclaimed that Greever had j made an insulting proposition to her. Clifford thereupon drew a revolver and shot Greever four times. Greever, in his ante-mortem statement, said he went to the hotel to see Mrs. Ball, the landlady, to pay his board bill. She was out. and Mrs. Clifford asked him into her bedroom, saying she would get Mrs. Ball. After they had talked for a few moments, Clifford jumped in and ordered him to throw up his hands. Greever started to walk out, when Clif ford shot him. He claims that it was a blackmailing scheme. An Insane Mother's Crime.
