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
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
For the entertainment of the visitors
after the departure of Col. Markham, an

Brown. Miss A. Werner and Oscar Wer

The English Syndicate and Their
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

* /\MOiJOT£Df* pure'
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.
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.
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.

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

following delegation : D. Freeman, E.
W. Jones, K. Kohn, J. H. Book, A. H.

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
C. Dillon presented the claims of Long
Beach, Abbot Kinney those of Santa
Monica, and Mr. Eagle those of 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

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!—

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.

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 TippooJTib of the charge of treachery,

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

While Balfour was addressing a depu

the people on the terrible barbarities of
Balfour's rule. Balfour expressed sur

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

ordered him to throw up his hands.
Greever started to walk out, when Clif
ford shot him. He claims that it was a
