Highest of all in Leavening Power.—TJ. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889.
fcftfej taking ABSOLUTELY PURE HOW ARE YOU, MR. KING? YOUNG AMERICA'S SALUTATION TO KALAKAUA. American Sovereigns Turn Out by the Hundred to Receive Mis Majesty ol Hawaii—Off to San Diego. Yesterday afternoon H. It. H. David Kalakaua, king of Hawaii, passed through this city, attended only by Colonel MacFarlane, royal chamberlain, Colonel Baker, of his suite, and Lieuten ant Blow, of the Charlston, en route from San Francisco to San Diego. The royal party, which was on board the sleeping car Sacramento, arrived on train No. 19 at the San Fernando street depot punctually at 2 :-15 o'clock. Quite a number of people had congregated at both this and the Arcade depot to catch a glimpse of the distinguished visitor, but they were doomed to disappointment, as the car was at once attached to a switch engine and con veyed to the First-afreet depot of the Southern California railroad, in order to catch the train for San Diego, which left at 3 :20 o'clock. Mayor Hazard, who was accompanied by Colonel Otis, General McCook and Lieutenant-Colonel Jones, intercepted the car at Downey avenue and rode down to the First-street depot, where a crowd of several hundred people had as sembled. When the car was drawn up to the platform, a rush was made for it by the eager multitude, and the royal party was compelled to stand a siege. Those of the crowd who were unable to squeeze into the car, called upon Mayor Hazard to bring the distin guished visitor out in order that they might see him, and as soon as practica ble the car was cleared and His Royal Highness stepped upon the rear plat form and exhibited himself. Some doubt appeared to exist as to whether or not the tall negro, attired in citizen's clothes, wearing a black felt hat. and puffing contentedly at a cigar, was really the person in whom so much interest was centered. One elderly lady, who was in the front row of the crowd, point ing at the dusky monarch, yelled ex citedly, "Mayor Hazard, is this the king?" The accent on the "this" caused a roar of merriment from the crowd, in which his majesty joined heartily. Another incident which caused a good deal of amusement occurred shortly alter this. A young man climbed upon the tender of the switch engine, and after scrambling over the coals, leaned over the end of the tender, and extending his coal-Tjegrimed hand to the monarch, said, "How are you, Mr. King?" The king grasped the hand cordially, and the enthusiastic youth was driven from his point of vantage by the trainmen, happy in the result of his perseverance. His majesty was heartily cheered as the train pulled out, and appeared to appreciate the compliment tendered to him. The royal visitor will remain at San Diego for four or live days, after which he intends making a visit to this city, remaining here a few days be fore his return to the north. Suitable arrangements will be made for his recep tion and amusement while here, in which all the leading citizens will be invited to assist. It is understood that his majesty's visit is for the purpose of investigating the possibility of establishing a steamship line between either San Diego or Redondo and his kingdom. David Ivalakaua, king of Hawaii, who was born on November 10, 1830, is de scended from one of the chief families of the Sandwich islands. He was elected to the throne in February, 1574, and soon afterward set out on a tour of the United States and Europe. He was con veyed to San Francisco on a steam frigate placed at his disposal by the United States government, arriving in that city on November 28th. After some political excitement in ISB7 he signed a new constitution, limit ing the prerogatives of the crown, on July 10th. He is a well educated man. and speaks the English language fluently. STEPS IN ADVANCE. What Chino Has Gained This Week. Lively Progress. Mr. Henry T. Oxnard, president of the Oxnard licet Sugar company, with the company's architect, Mr. H. T. Jul. Fuehrman, Head Carpenter Peter Schmidt and Beet Farmer Louis A. Hache, awived on Tuesday. On that day the site for the factory was defi nitely located, the stone in the Chino hills examined and accepted for the foundation, a contract made with John Whyte, of Pomona, to make 2.500,000 brick in the Chino yard at the southern terminus of the Chino Valley railroad. Work in the brick yard has commenced, and will on the stone quarry not later than Monday. • Wednesday and Thursday the en gineering of the factory site was done, some material got upon the ground and a lot of teams engaged to excavate and prepare for the stone foundations. Grading and excavating are now under way. J. H. Todd of the Pomona Pipe works was called down yesterday and engaged to immediately do certain work. A contract lias been made with the Perry Lumber and Mill company of Los Angeles to supply the cement and about a million feet of lumber. A part of the lumber has arrived in Ontario, and will be rushed on here immediately. A 40-horse-power traction engine, with twelve 12-inch plows to turn up the soil twelve inches deep, arrived today. The Poßtal Telegraph company ex pected to have its line here today and an office open, but Christmas has deferred the completion of the work for a day or two. The Chino Ranch meat market opened up with a variety of choice meats laet evening. Blacksmiths, druggists, barbers and shoemakers have been here trying to ar range for opening business. The Porry Lumber and Mill company THE LOS ANGELES HERALD. MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 29, 1890. has decided to open a lumber yard in Chino just as quickly as stock can be placed liere, with M. A. Murphy of Col ton as manager. Many applications have been made for dwellings to rent. Lot owners can make good interest on money by building right, now. Houses and business rooms are being rearranged; A lot of money has been already de posited in local banks.—[Chino Cham pion. DR. KOCH'S LYMPH. The First Lot to Arrive in Southern California. Dr. Bowditch Morton, the well-known resident physician of the Hotel del Cor onado, says the San Diego Union, is just in receipt of a telegram from his brother, Dr. William I. Morton, of New- York city, advisory of shipment to him by express of a small supply of Koch's lymph, which had been procured by Dr. David Orr Fdson, who is now in Berlin. This, it is believed, will be the initiatory consignment on the coast of the celebrated panacea known through out the civilized world as Koch's con sumptive cure. BULL VS. BEAR. WITHOUT NATURAL WEAPONS THEY AFFORD TAME SPORT. Yesterday's Gathering at Agricultural Park—Some Specimens of the SSports of Olden Times. Yesterday was a typical Southern California day, and it was a tyoical au dience of the olden time that assembled at Agricultural park in the afternoon. The attraction was a bull and bear tight. A pit waa fixed up, and the elevated seats wero crowded. Many ladies even ventured up on these seats. The Span ish population was largeiy represented. They took the liveliest interest in the proceedings. Pretty senoritas were quite numerous among the spectators. Altogether, there must have been about thirteen hundred people present when the festivities began. A young bull was chained securely to a stake in the cen ter of the ring by a front foot. The bear was kept securely locked up in a cage. It took some time to get the bear out of the cage. She, too, was securely chined to the stake in the center of the ring. In order to prevent, interference by the authorities,the top of the bull's horns were cut oil'and padded. The bear was also muzzled. The bull rushed matters as soon as the bear showed up. There was a clinch, the bear grabbing the bull by the horns. The bull managed to get the bear under him and horned the na tive of Acton. The first round ended decidedly in favor of the bull. The bear growled and made a rush at the bull only to run against his horns. The bear, nothing daunted, fought back gamely, but was knocked out by the bull without any greateffort. P>ruin lay groaningon her back and the bull held aloof, evidently not wishing to take advantage of a foul blow. The bear did not feel inclined to continue the tight, and was only induced to continue when doused with water by one oi the attendants. The sympathy of the spectators now veered around to the bear, and cries were heard, "Take the muzzle off." The occupants of the pit watched one another. The I mil made an attempt to gore his competitor, but a savage thrust of the bear's paw kept him at a respectful distance. Eventually the bull made a rush through the gate, and the crowd scatteied with alacrity. Several persons were thrown down in the stampede, but none were injured. The bear, who was clearly hois dv combat, was then coaxed back into the cage. She was not injured to any great extent, but was very much dis tressed. She was tired out before the fight was commenced, for it appears that it took several men from 8 until 1 o'clock to muzzle her. She resisted the elforts of the men and tired herself out. After the cage with the bear had been removed from the ring, three Mexicans attired in fantastic and gaudy costumes entered the ring. They marched around the ring once and then waved their hats at the crowd. Tliey each carried bauderillas. A bull was then let in the ring and the fun be gan. The bull made a little fellow called "Chapo" beat a hasty retreat, and the bull tossed the little, fellow as lie climbed-out of the pit. The caution he aftei wards displayed made the crowd laugh heartily. "Chapo" kept at a respectful distance for several minutes, until his pluck came back, when his clownish maneuvers created no end of amusement. The bull rushed at the men, who stepped aside very cleverly. Three different bulls were brought into tho ring, and the fun was kept up for an hour or more. An old Mexican, about 50 years old, stepped in the ring and evoked considerable applause when he approached the bull with a red flag. The old man showed that he was an old ' hand at the business. A ST. LOUIS PHYSICIAN. He Teste a California Production. — Hl* Report. A Bt I-ouls gentleman whose affliction was sick headaches was so surprised at the cure effected by Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, that he called it to the attention of a relative, who hap pened to be none other than Dr. F. A. Barrett, the well-known St Louis physician of 2652 Shen andoah Street The doctor saw at once that it differed from the potash preparations iv that it was purely vegetable, and becoming interested in it, began a series of investigations, and in • subsequent letter candidly admitted its curative properties, and says: — Wishing to test its virtues further, I used tt in my own family, and prescribed it for patients who required a Kene*al system regulator. As ■ result, I can say ft Is an almost absolute cure for constipation, biliousness, dyspepsia, indiges tion, and sick headaches. These troubles usu ally come from a disturbed condition of the stomach and bowels, and Joy's Vegetable Sarsv parilla is the best laxative and stomach regula tor 1 have over seen, and as a general system corrective is almost perfection itself. • ISiguedl F.

Yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock W. llappes, alias Philip Spiegel, who was arrested by Detective Auble on Sat urday for petit larceny, attempted to commit suicide in his cell at the city jail, by hanging himself with a strip of blanketing. Hearing a peculiar sound emanating from Spiegel's cell, Jailer Clayton opened the door, and to his surprise found his prisoner in a stooping p sition on the threshold, slowly strang ling to death. The would-be suicide, who was unconscious, was at once con veyed to the receiving hospital, and Police Surgeon Morrison was summoned as hastily as possible. He soon recovered consciousness, but suffered horrible agonies, and relapsed into convulsions. His neck and throat swelled up in an alarming manner, and though unable to speak his moans gave evidence of the terrible pain he en dured. The physician did everything possible to relieve the patient's suffer ings, but without avail for sometime; the unfortunate man, however, rallying somewhat a few hours later. At a late hour last night he was pronounced out of danger, but his condition was such as to need constant attendance. An investigation of his cell showed that Spiegel had torn one of his blan kets into strips, and with one of these he had made a rope.oneendof which he had tied to a small bar in the ventilator over the cell door. The other end he had tied in a loop, through which he passed his head. After stuffing his coat into the ventilator, in order to prevent the noise he made from being heard outside, he then deliberately squatted down until his whole weight was borne upon hia throat. In this position he became unconscious, and would, in all probabil ity, have accomplished his aim, had he not been discovered. RAILWAY NOTES. The old story is revived that Mr. L. M. Felton will succeed Mr. John King as president of the Erie. A railroad is to be constructed from Niagara Falls to Lewiston, a distance of seven miles, along the rapids. Schenectady, N. V., is making a strong effort to secure the New York Central shops and yards now located at Albany. The Atlanta Journal is authority for the statement that the Richmond Ter minal company will build a through line from Norfolk to Cincinnati. The Toledo, Peoria and Western has paid the last claim against it on account of the Chatsworth disaster, it costing the company $330,000 in round numbers. An operator in Atchison says: "It is calculated Jay Gould received 61,000 shares of Atchison and C. P. Huntington 35.000 shares in exchange for the Frisco stock." Railway clerks from all over the Uni ted States met in Cleveland, 0., recent ly and formed a national organization. The name adopted was the American Association of Railway Clerks. At the annual convention of the National Brotherhood of Railway Train men, held in Los Angeles, Cal., the treasurer's report showed that $275,000 had been paid out for disability and death claims during the year.
