The December Dinner of the Clearing-
House Association—A Fine Paper Head
by Mr. A. D. Childress.
Seventeen millionaires in a dining
room at the Nadeau last night cele
brated the December gathering of the
Clearing-house association.
The banquet was one calculated to
please a set of bankers. Every dish was
a la financier; sight drafts, but no over
drafts, on the claret and champagne
were duly honored ; there were no pro
tests except at the necessity of parting;
collections of good stories were easy, the
only discount was that on some of the
Sunday-school narratives told by Presi
dent E. F. Spence, and as each partici
pant rose to Mb feet, at the close of the
festivities he easily struck a balance.
A very interesting paper was read by
W. C. Bosbyahell, of the Southern Cali
fornia National bank, on "General
Banking Interests of Los Angeles as co in
pared with Omaha and other more east
ern cities."
This was followed by a paper, which
needs no encomium, by A. W. Childress.
From it arc taken the following excerpts:
"Looking backward over a period of
five years, which constitute my stay and
residence in this glorious climate aud
country, I am struck with astonishment
in the contemplation and realization of
its phenomenal growth and develop
ment, financial and otherwise.
"From a town of 22,600 population in
the summer of '85 as shown by a local
census taken aud suppressed by proud
taxpayers, who boasted to the world of
double that number of souls, Los An
geles has grown to be the second city of
California, with over (30,000 people
within her properly defined and consti
tuted borders and suburbs.
"Within the same period of time Los
Angeles county, in the same ratio of
population, has increased in taxable
wealth from $32,730,000 to $07,121,000.
In the past decade the population of the
county has increased from 25,000 to
101,450, and its taxable wealth from
$18,503,733 to $07,121,000, while the in
crease in population ig something to be
proud of and marvel at. * * *
"In July, 1885, there were only four
commercial banks in Los Angeles, hav
ing a total capital of $500,000, with sur
plus of $000,000.
"The combined deposits of the four
banks amounted to $3,128,000, whereas
in July of this year (1800), the number
of commercial banks has increased to
twelve, with a combined capital of over
$3 000,000, a combined surplus of over
$1,800,000, and the enormous sum of
$8,141,000 of deposits.
"Besides the twelve commercial banks
there are at present five prosperous sav
ings banks, with a total capital and sur
plus of $340,000, and combined deposits
of $1,400,000, as against two institutions
in July, 1885, with a total capital of only
$42,000, and deposits of only $145,000.
"These figures show the gratifying in
crease of banking capital within the past
five years to be $3,500,000, with the cor
responding increase of deposits of over
"This great increase in the number
and wealth of banking institutions, to
gether with the large accumulation of
deposits, trire indices of growth and
development, would puzzle the stranger
to believe such a tiling as a 'bursted
boom.' "
Regarding improvements in banking,
the speaker said:
"We should all adopt rules requiring
customers to meet their paper promptly
at maturity, on penalty of being denied
future accommodations.
"This rule rigidly enforced would en
able us to rely on the contents of our
portfolios in times of emergency.
"We should als) protect ourselves
against "kiters," accommodation bor
rowers and all-round bank customers,
who open an account with one bank by
a three-day loan one month, aud close
it in the next by a similar transaction
with another institution. The city is
liberally infested with such so-called
depositors. We should require regular
borrowers to maintain credit balances
equal to a fair percentage of their accu
"A great growing evil which should
be suppressed is the enormous amount
of gratuitous work done by us for our cus
tomers. * * *
"The necessity of a state association
for the purpose of bringing financiers to
gether lor discussions of questions of
vital importance to their own success
and the state's advancement and pros
perity is clearly shown by such enact
ments upon the statute books as the
mortgage tax law, et al. * * *
"The fact that the removal of £5,000,
--000 of gold by Russia from the Barings
should make them fail and cause the
banks of England, Ireland, France and
Germany to be called to the rescue to
meet $15,000,000 acceptances payable in
gold, shows conclusively that the single
standard gold policy of England has been
badly shaken up, and that bimetalism
will soon be the policy of the world.
"In conclusion I trust I have strength
ened your convictions in this discon
nected paper, that 'tis best ior bankers
to dwell together in unity."
The guests were as follows: H. W.
Hellman, John Milner, George H. Stew
ait, S. B. Dewey, E. F. Spence, H. T. 8.

The Mayor Inspects Soma Plague Spots
in Chinatown.
Like a semi-tropic Haroun-al-Raschid,
Mayor Ifazard last night did a little ex
ploring incog, and in Chinatown.
During the evening he dropped into
the police station and secured the abie
services as guide and defender of the

larly desirous of seeing the pool rooms,
of which so much has been said lately,

contaminating accessories. The mayor

Fan tan 'was mentioned. "Come
along," said Mr. Bosqui, and he turned
into a dark passage, and his honor, who
never flinches from any ordeal, followed.
Through dark rooms and by evil-smell
ing alleys the pair traveled; at last
Bosqui dropped out of sight, and his
voice, as if from earth, greeted the
mayor with "Look out for those steps ;
I'll take you through this underground
passage right into a game. The mayor
boldly olunged down, and with all
the dignity possible to the attitude
scrambled * along on his hands and
knees. A door was encountered, which
Mr. Bosqui proceeded to kick down, but
was checked by his honor, who thought
he had seen enough ; it was very hot in
there, and he was not used to traveling
on all fours, and the place smelled bad,
and it was very dirty, an I he did not
need any more evidence, so a masterly
retreat was ordered. Other evil spots in
that festering portion of the city were
seen, and it is probable that active
measures for its moral sanitation will be
the result of the visit.
A Bull and Bear Contest Out of Wall
A peculiar fight has been arranged to
come off in a corral at the Agricultural
park. It 13 nothing less than a bull and
bear fight. The bear is the one recently
captured near Acton. The date has not
yet been fixed, but it will take place
one day next week.
A Company Said to Have Been Organized
for that Purpose—A Batch of Person
als and News Notes.
The project of a wharf at Santa Mon
ica is again being agitated, and it is said
that a company has been formed, in the
interest of the Westinghouse-Pulhnan
syndicate, who have taken or will take
the Los Angeles and Paci lie railway, to
build a commercial pier there this win
ter. In view of the almost consummated
consolidation of the above mentioned
line with the San Gabriel, Rapid Transit,
there may be some basis for the revival
of the wharf scheme.
The San Bernardino Courier states
that one of its reporters recently learned
"from a source which is absolutely irre
proachable, in point of reliability, that
nad it not been U r the recent flurry in
the money market, the much-talked-of
road from Salt Lake would now be in
course of construction. There is an
eastern gentleman now in San Bernar

map of tho proposed load. The
Courier is at libeity to name only
the northern terminal, which is Provo,
Utah. A very complete survey of the
country through which the road will
pass was made. A voluminous report
on the wood, coal and mineral resources,
accompanied by an accurate map of the
rivers, towns, mountain ranges, etc.,
was also made."
"The contract for the construction of
this road was let and work was about to
begin, when tho prime mover in the en
terprise was obliged through sickness to
retire. This, however, would not have
affected the construction of the road, as
a large block of stock was about to be
placed. The uneasiness in Wall street
put a stop to the whole thing. In all
probability the stoppage is only tempo

most the construction of the road will

Her Mother Says She Was Always a
Good Girl—Jessie Tells Again the Story
of the Drugged Wine and Her Ruin.
Judge McKinley's court was crowded
all day yesterday by those eauw to hear
the racy testimony on the $5t)7O00 dam
age suit of Miss Jessie Mai shall against
Jacob Taylor.
Mrs. Susan Wilson, the mother of
the plaintiff, was the next witness.
She related the history of her
daughter and produced a certificate
of her birth. She had always
believed her daughter chaste, and the
first intimation she received to the con
trary was when she was notified ten
days after Bessie gave birth to the child.
Upon the cross-examination a letter was
shown, written by the witness to Dennis
O'Brien, the young man who figures so
conspicuously in the present case. The
witness admitted writing such a letter,
but claimed that two lines had been
erased, and that the figures thirty had
been changed to ninety. Dennis O'Brien
was put on the stand temporarily. He
admitted making the erasure, but
claimed that he did so to protect Miss
Marshall. He declined to answer the
question in regard to changing the fig
ures. The letter was then admitted in
evidence. Mrs. Wilson then took the
witness stand again. She testified that
she had written the letter in question
for the purpose of testing O'Brien's
friendship for her daughter.
Jessie, the pretty plaintiff, was placed
on the stand for cross-examination, but
the closest questioning failed to shake
her testimony, which in the main was
as follows:
In San Dieeo she secured employment
as a waitress in a hotel. In 1888 she
procured employment in Taylor's hotel
at Del Mar, and it was there that she
met her ruin. She said that Taylor ap
peared to take a great interest in her;
asked her a great many questions about
herself and parents.* She told him
frankly all about herself, and gave the
reason she was working out—the neces
sity of earning her own living. Taylor
asked her if her father left any insur
ance money when he died, and if
he belonged to a secret society. Miss
Marshall told him her father had been
a Mason. Taylor said he also was a
Mason. Learning this the girl placed
confidence in him, for she had heard her
father say that if she or her mother was
ever in trouble or distress to make the
fact known to a member of that order
and they would be tendered aid and
sympathy. The witness next stated
how Taylor invited her to partake of a
glass of wine. She had scarcely swal
lowed the liquid when she began to feel
sick and a tingling sensation crept over
her. She could not remain on her feet,
and sank upon tho bed. The last she
remembers was that Taylor had his
arms about her and expressed sorrow
that she felt ill, and that he loved her.
The next morning she realized what
had happened. She adhered to her
original statement that Taylor had
never given her more than $180. One
hundred of this was given her, when she
was ill aud about to become a mother.
The Pleasant Entertainment Given by
Plymouth Church.
For some time past the ladies of the
Plymouth Congregational society in the
west end of the city have been devoting
their spare time to the manufacture of
various useful and decorative articles
which they resolved to dispose of for
the benefit of their new church.
As the best means of doing so, they
decided upon holding a Christmas fair,
and last night tiie results of their labors
were exhibited for the first time at the
church, a cozy frame edifice on the cor
ner of Lovelace avenue and 21st street.
This Christinas fair, which opened
last night, will be continued until Fri
day evening, hy which time doubtless
everything will have been disposed of.
The interior of the church in which it is
held has been artistically decorated with
cypress, ivy and sprays of pepper trees ;
while the multitudinous articles which
are offered lor sale are displayed in five
charming bowers, decked with ever

Los Angeles Lodge Seats Its Officers
Last Night.
Los Angeles lodge No. 42, F. and A.

at Masonic hall last evening. The
officers installed were: F. C. Wolf, mas

of their appreciation of his services dur
ing his term of office.

A good many people who read the

they are wrong. Now let us see. It is

big convention a month would support
the hotel with its other business beyond
a peradventure.
It would have to be a hotel of large
dimensions, and of thorough equipment
and finely handled. It would have to be
like the Palace, San Francisco, or the
Fifth avenue hotel, New York.
The Tenth street site is just
the place for such a hotel.
It is a block bounded by four good

it will be in a few years.

The Great Breeder to Send Two Strings
of Racers From Here—The Makeup of
Each Outfit-Youngsters Who Will Be
Heard From.
Yesterday morning at Agricultural
park, L. J. Rose watched his thorough
breds being put through their pacings
with evident pleasure and interest. It
was a typical Southern California day,
and the youngsters must have felt good,
judging by the way they disported
themselves as soon as the lads jumped
into the pigskins. Yesterday was quite
an important day, for the owner of
Rosemead divided up his horses for next
season's campaign.
The Hebald representative inter
viewed Mr. Rose, who gave the scribe
the required information in his usual
courteous way. Billy Appleby, the
popular trainer, who is known to every
race-goer in Los Angeles, will handle
the eastern Btring, which will be made
up as follows: Fairy, Rico, Odette,
Raindrop and the six 2-year-olds, Hinda
Dwyer by Reform, Arnica by Sam
Brown, Angelique by Darebin.Johannus
by Longfield, ISomad by Wild Idle, and
Gondolier by Flood.
Rico and Odette will both be entered
in the subuiban handicap. The 2-year
olds are very select, having the best
blood in the country in their veins.
The western string will be in charge
of Billy Gardner. This string will be
made of Conrad, Bianca, Peri, Leola by
Eolus, Barbara by Pat Molloy, Maid
of Honor by Himyar, Bon Voy
age by Argyle, Mulatto by Argyle,
and two unnamed sons of Argyle,
one being a half brother to Rhono, and
the other out of imported Amalia. This
Btring should also uphold the prestige of
lxis Angeles on the American turf. AH
the two-year-olds are well entered in big
stakes, and barring unforseen circum
stances some of the most valuable are
liable to be landed by the youngsters
now receiving their education at the
Agricultuial park.

Tbe only free art rooms in this city
can be found at the elegant parlors of
the above named firm, at 183 South
Spring street. Every day they are
crowded with lovers of art work, who
speak in the highest terms of the fine
collection. A recent addition has been
made to the already neatly arranged art
room; it is now composed of two com
modious parlors, which contain the work
of the best artists in the country. In
one apartment the exhibit is composed
exclusively of pastel work, with the
iatest design of frames, a line which has
never before been seen in Los Angeles.
In this room is also an excellent
collection of parlor easels and mirrors.
In the adjoining room there are an un
usual large number of pictures, the
work of local artists, which attract at
tention. This firm are now doing a
framed picture business, and they carry
the largest and finest stock of etchings
and engravings south of San Francisco.

nia - Mr. J. F. Mitchell, the manager
and one of the proprietors, extends a
cordial invitation to the public to visit

The Aug Der Oho Piano P.ecital.
The piano recitals to be given by Miss
j Adele Aus der Ohe, this evening and
Saturday evening next, will afford the
people of Los Angeles a musical oppor
tunity very seldom seen. Miss Aus der
Ohe gave four concerts in SanFrancilco,
to packed houses, and has acceded to an
earnest request to give two more on her
! return from l.os Angeles. Her success,
! both in Europe and America, lias been
unprecedented, and her hearers are of
one opinion, and declare her to be the
greatest living pianist. Los Angeles is
credited with being a decidedly musical
city, and crowded houses for Miss Aus
