LONG BEACH GOSSIP.
HOW CHRISTMAS WAS PASSED BY THE SEA. The Various Churches Celebrate—Oyster Planting On a Large Scale—Notes and Gossip. Christmas day here was perfect, as far as weather goes, and a number of our citizens, as well as visitors, took ad vantage of it and went in bathing, and by their merry laughter must have en joyed it. There are many visitors here from the east, who are enthusiastic in their praise of our beautiful beach. We stand, f think, the best, show of having acting in conjunction with the trustees, have engaged Mr. H.C.Dillon to look after the legal work. The best selection they could have possibly made. Captain McGarvin and several wealthy men have formed a company to plant oysters in the Alamitos bay and at Ana heim Landing. They expected the tirst installment in time to plant by Christmas. The oysters will be the best of Chesapeake bay oysters, and will be from one to three "years old. Mr. McGarvin says if they "live three weeks after transporting, the venture will boa success, and they will bring them out here by the car load next spring and put them in their "little beds." Tbe churches' Christmas eve were made as beautiful as tbe beauties of Long Beach could make them, and that is saving a great deal. The Congregational church had a fine Christmas tree loaded down with candies for the little ones, who were placed in Bupieme charge of it for that night, and who were enjoying themselves for all that was out when I left. The Sunday schoolchildren of the church spent *25 of their fund in buying books for their librarj—the most utilitarian use they could have put it to. The ladies most prominent in decorating the church were Mrs. Jotham Bixby, Mrs. Dillie, Mrs. Lowe and Miss Anna koseWebster. The Presbyterian church was hand somely fitted up with flowers, evergreens and a Christmas tree. Their programme was designed for the old as well as the young children. The little "tots" of Mrs. Bailey's Sunday school class, san« and recited in a manner that proved that their teacher had her heait in her work. There was good instrumental music by Miss Amelia Brown, organ, Mr. E. R. Hrown, cornet, and Mr. Will Craig, violin, and a vocal quartettecom posed of Mrs. Gage, Mrs. Hale, Dr. Wood and Lewis A. Bailey. The programme was long and varied audi did not stay until the finish, but a real live, Simon pure Santa Glaus from (Greenland put in an appearance before 1 left and proved himself as genial as he was generous. He was loaded down with presents for tbe little enes, and old ones as well, and I think every person in the church got a reminder from dear old Saint Nick. The Methodists at the tabernacle outdid themselves in the beauty of their decor ations—flowers and evergreens iv such profusion that a spectator might easily imagine him or herself in Eden. Their large Sunday school class, under the able tutelage of Mr. Walter Bailey, showed a remarkable proficiency in their songs and recitations. Their large tree was loaded with presents, and I regret ex ceedingly that my time was so limited as to preclude me from giving a detailed account of their programme, which, as I am informed, was excellent. To the Misses Straw, Decker, Cuthbert (Georg iana), Woolner and Will Gravesbelongs the credit of the artistic work in decor ating. Mr. Thomas Stovell is going to plant forty acres in apples, and another forty to English walnuts. He is now having the eighty acres fenced. Messrs. Strong, Macy and Venable, the three commissioners appointed to appraise the Alamitos ranche, have con cluded their labors, and some 22,000 acres will be divided into three equal parts. Mr. Will F. Sweeny has surveyed the ranche into 100-acre tracts, and is now finishing the details, when the ranche will be subdivided. Nemo. CONSOLIDATED. The Latest Move Made by the Ter minal People. At the county clerk's office yesterday there were filed articles of agreement consolidating tho Los Angeles and Glendale railway company, the Lob Angeles, Pasadena and Glendale railway company and the Los Angeles Terminal railway company, under the name of the Los Angeles Ter minal railway company, with a capital stock of $3,000,000. The directors are B. F. Hobart and It. C. Kerens, of St. Louis, Mo., and Dan McFarland, W. 11. Workman and T. B, Burnett,of this city. The old stock will be retired, and new issued. It is divided into 30,000 shares, at $100 per share. The main line, when completed, will be from the bay of San Pedro through Los Angeles, thence through the Saa Fernando valley to a point on the Pacific ocean near Hueneme, Ventura county. Several branches will also be built from the main line to im portant sections not now touched by rail. FOREFATHERS' DAY. It is Celebrated by the Congregational Club. The Southern California Congregation al club celebrated Forefathers' day on Monday evening at the First Congrega tional. The room was tastily adorned with plants and flowers. The club dined at the Ardinobr at 7 o'clock, and the ex ercises at the church commenced at 8. The president of the club, D. Gilbert Dexter, opened the meeting with brief remarks, extending a hearty welcome to the eastern visitors present. He spoke of the clubs east nnd their formation,and was glad that the Pacific responded to the Atlantic in celebrating a day of such moment to the whole country. Rev. E. E. P. Abbott was introduced and read a paper on Preparations for the Pilgrims' movement. Rev. I). Floyd Jenkins of England fol lowed with a witty address on The De velopment of Puritanism in England. THS LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 27, im. Rev. Dr. Frary of Pomonj, read a paper on The Pilgrams in Engand nnd Scot- land. Rev. J. H. Stanwojd, D. D., gave an address on The Pilgrins' Voyage to America and Their Eary Sufferings. Rev. D. D. Hill of Fasaden* spoke about Pilgrim Influence in America, and how to l'erpetuate it. Deacon Greene, publisher of the Bos ton Congregationalist.made an excellent address, during which he spoke feelingly of his honored associate, Dr. Dexter, recently deceased. He was warmly ap plauded at the close of his remarks. Hon. Samuel Dexter Hastings ot Mad ison, Wisconsin, a member of the Amer ican board, spoke warmly about his re ception in California, and the gratifica tion he had at being present at the meeting of the club. The report of the secretary, Rev. H. I. Case, was rend and accepted. After singing America, Rev. Dr. Hutchins pro i whom were convicted ot naving soiu Louisiana lottery tickets, and ordered to appear for sentence at 1 ::i0 o'clock this j afternoon. Greenwald was convicted of j live separate offenses, Jones of one only, I and Harris, who gave notice of his in j tention to move for a new trial, of four. : There are several more cases pending J against them, and it is not unlikely that | the coffers ol the city treasurer w ill be j considerably enriched at their expense. Police Judge Owens was occupied all j day in the third trial ot* Clayton White, j the attorney charged with "having bat* j tered General John Mansfield, in his of fice in the Temple block, on November 20th last. After hearing part of the tes timony, the case was continued until this morning, Judge Adams, a material witness for the prosecution, being ab sent. COURT NOTES. Little Legal Incidents Which Were Noted Yesterday. The case of M. A. Botello was on trial yesterday in Justice Savage's court. He j was charged with the embezzlement of a i horse belonging to Deputy Sheriff Muri i etta, but on the hearing of the evidence t was discharged from custody. | Judge Cheney yesterday passed sen j fence on Charles Lawson, charged with ! assault on Captain Moody, and he will ! occupy apartments in the county jail for ! the next two months. Lucy Colston was on trial in Justice Savage's court yesterday for "destroy* I ing a written instrument." After a I short hearing she was discharged. Before United States Commissioner Van Dyke yesterday, Ramon Pena, charged with cutting one Pablo, at tbe San Ysidro Indian reservation in No vember last, had his examination, and the evidence of Pablo and Captain Lugo, of the Canhilla village, was taken. The case was continued until January l'ltli. All the parties are Indians, Captain Lugo being a woli educated and intelli gent man. COL. C. C. ALLEN Is on the Card for the Office of Adju tant-General. It was learned yesterday that Colonel |C. C. Allen, of this city, commander of j the Seventh regiment of the national i guard, is likely to receive the appoint | ment of adjutant-general from Governor I Markham. This elevation of Colonel I Allen leaves Lieutenant-Colonel Palmer Jin command of the regiment until an ! election is held to select a new com mander. Lieutenant-Colonel Palmer is one of the most devoted, enthusiastic guardsmen in the state, and has for many years in other states been an active member. He should, it would appear to a layman, be selected to succeed Colonel Allen. His promo tion would be directly in line of mili tary procedure, he being the next in rank, and the regiment would be given a commander full of ardor and enter prise, who would certainly do all in his power to advance its interests in every particular. He certainly in every way is well qualified for the position. A FEW OF THEM LEFT. The Lindleys Take Their Turkey and Cranberry Sauce Together. There are a few Lindleys in Southern California, and on Christmas day a few of them gathered at the residence of Hon. HerveyJLindley, at Whittier, and took their turkey and cranberry sauce together. The sisters and cousins and aunts, and more or less near con nections were as follows: Mrs. Mary Lindley, grandmother, 89 years of age; Milton Lindley, Mrs. Milton Lindley, Walter Lindley, wife and two children, Hervey I indley and wife, Albert Lind ley, Miss Ida 6. Lindley, Mr. and Mrs. Owens, Judge M. T. Owens, Mrs. Lom bard and child, Mr. and Mrs. Leighton and three children, Cyrus Lindiey, wife and two children, the Misses Eva and Susie Banta, Mrs. Cook, Dr. Cook, Miss Edith Cook, Chas. Cook, Ed. Cook, Mr, and Mrs. John Myers and two children. Dr. W. V. Coffin, of Alaska territory. Mr. and Mrs. John E. Coffin, S. K. Lindley, Mr. and Mrs. King, Master Ed. Lotshar, Ralph Lowe and John Finney, AH CHOO'S CHEEK. He Receives a Billet Which Inflicts a Gash. At the district attorney's office yester day, Ah Choo, a Chinese vegetable ped dler, swore to a complaint charging a Chinese milk peddler, name unknown, with assault. The two mongols meet every morning, and the milkman has frequently varied the monotony of his early morning drives by firing rocks, chunks of dirt and other missiles at the innocent-looking Ah Choo. Yesterday morning he became more festive than usual, and after indulging in hia pastime for a moment, suddenly picked np a portion of a cord of wood, or a "billet," and fired it at Choo with such force and precision as to cut in ugly gash in his cheek. It may be questioned whether anything short of a bolt of lightning would penetrate the cheek of a Chinese vegetable peddler, yet Ah Choo has the cheek, and the gash in the cheek, and he swears that it was the result of his interview with a brother Celestial. CARVED HIS KNUCKLES. THE EXPLOIT OF A PRETTY GIRL WITH A BURGLAR, He Interrupts Her While She is Putting on Her Bonnet and She Effectually Re taliates With a Carving Knife. Miss Gertie Dewey is a brave girl. She is employed in a large dry goodß store in this city, which perhaps ac counts in part for the extraordinary amount of nerve she possesses. She is young, pretty and cultured, and lives on Jefferson street, so it is no wonder a burglar was attracted to her residence on Christmas day. She, at the time tbe event to be noted occurred, was prepar te rest of the family at her discuss a < hristmas tur is engaged in putting on for which, as some men usual thing a woman re jr more time. While so en eard a suspicious noise, and large carving knife which lay ng table she went to her edroom and saw two men on attempting to get in. They ndow raised from tbe bottom or more, and one had grasped inside, and was just in the bing in. The young lady was unprotected, but to decide was the work of only an aen she crept up to the win dow, and with her big carving knife gave him a rap over the knuckles with all the force she could command in her desperation. The man, who up to this time seemed not to notice her presence, gave an unearthly shriek, and with his companion made good his escape, roar ing piteously with pain. The young lady then finished her toilet and pro ceeded to her uncle's. YOUNG REDICK AGAIN. He Gets a Worthless Draft Cashed in Tucson. A story comes floating up from Tuc son about Will Redick, the young law yer and politician who some weeks ago deserted his wife and fled from tbe city in company with a notorious prostitute named Lily Stephens. Nothing much has been heard from him since his departure, but the story is now about town, tbat Redick and the woman went to Tucson, where he met Mr. Walter Vail and induced him to cash a draft on this city to the amount of $150. The draft came up for collec tion, was dishonored, protested and re turned, hut Mr. Vail ultimately got re imbursed from Redick's father. y.rr,. Geo. P. Smoote, a highly cultivated md estimable lady of Prescott, Ark., writes underdateof April 22,59: "During the sum mer of 1887 my eyes became inflamed, and my stomach and liver hopelessly disordered. Nothing 1 ate agreed with nits. I took chron ic diarrhaja, and for some time my life was despaired ofby my family. The leading phy icians of the country were consulted, but tbe medicines administered by them never did me any permanent pood, and 1 lingered between lii'e and death, the latter being pre lercble to ll Tgonies I was enduring. In May, 1888, I became disgusted with pliyei sWmm mid their medlclnea, I dropped them all and depended solely on Swift's Specific fS. 8, 8.), a few bottle's of which made me pormently well —well from then until now." It Builds up Old People. My mother who is a very old lady, was physically broken down. The U6e of Swift's Specific (S. S. 8.) has entirely restored her to health. E. B. DTLWOBTH, Greenville, S. C.
