He Takes an Optimistic View of the
World's Fair.
San Francisco, May 7. —M. H. De
Young, a member of the board of con
trol of the Columbian exposition, re
turned to Sah Francisco yesterday. In
an interview respecting the progress
made, and the outlook for the world's
fair, he speaks in most enthusiastic
terms, and comparing it with the Paris
exposition, which he attended as one of
the official representatives of the
United States, expresses the view that
it will surpass in magnitude and
beauty that of tbe French exposition.
"The Paris exposition," he said, "tbe
grandest thing ever seen up to that
time, will be surpassed so that no com
parison will be attempted." He closed
by describing the plans for the build
ings and for the beautifying of the ex
position grounds. He stated that when
the people of the United States once
went about to study and comprehend
the scope of tiie American exposition,
they would join in the enthusiastic feel
iny felt by the commissioners, and
every American attending the exposi
tion could not but have pride in his
nationality and citizenship.

LEEDS DISCHARGED.
The 1 raffle Manager of the Missouri Pa
cific Loses His Job.
New Yobk, May 7.—Considerable dis
satisfaction was expressed by membera
of the advisory board of the Western
Traffic association when they met thia
morning for their second day's aeasion,
about the way matters are dragging
along. Many of them want to leave the
city to attend to important business,
and they say nothing ie being accom
plished at the meeting. They charac
terize the affair, so far, as a mere game,
each waiting to see the other make the
first move. Mr. Leeds's statement at
yesterday's meeting, so far as he was
allowed to proceed, was not what the
members of the advisory board wanted;
it did not touch upon the vital point, the
cutting of sugar rates. At 11 o'clock
Cable came out of the meeting and said
Leeds had been stopped in his state
ment, aa lie practically admitted his
guilt. Cable further said there would
be no trouble in the organization, pro
vided each road carried out its agree
ment, that is to discharge every man
found guilty, of violating rules. When
asked if Leieds had been found guilty,
Cable replied: "No; because beadmitted
his guilt." This meant that Leeds
would go.
The board took a recess at 1 o'clock
for lunch. Aiter recess Chairman
Hughitt said the board had considered
the Leeds matter, and their finding was
that the Missouri Pacific railroad,
through the action of its freight traffic
manager, violated the agreement sub
stantially as presented by the commis
sioners. In the afternoon it was learned
that Traffic Manager Leeds, of the Mis
souri Pacific, was discharged, and that
he leaves for the west tonight. Gould,
when asked about the matter, would
say nothing more than that he had dis
charged Leeds. It was rumored that
Leeds had been offered the position of
traffic manager of the Union Pacific, but
of this Leeds would say nothing.
NOW EASTWARD BOUND.
! PRESIDENT HARRIbON STARTS ON
HIS RETURN TRIP.
A Pleasant Ride Up the Columbia Valley.
Short Stops at Multnomah Falls, The
Dalles, Cblilo and Pendleton.
Portland, Ore., May 7.—The preei
dential party arrived here at 3 o'clock
this morning, from Puget Sound, and
left at 7:45 over the Union Pacific, east
ward bound.
The Du.les, Ore., May 7. —The morn
ing was cloudy, with light showers of
rain at intervals, but tbe skies cleared
up about 10:30 o'clock, and the remain
der of the trip through the picturesque
valley of the Columbia was made
in bright sunlight. One of the pleas
antest incidents of the run from Port
land was a visit to Multonomah
Falls. The entire party, including the
president and ladies, left the train for a
closer inspection of the beautiful falls,
and spent several minutes admiring the
scene and gathering ferns and wild flow
ers as mementoes. The first stop of any
importance was at The Dalles, where the
president received an enthusiastic wel
come.
In responding to an address of wel
come, tbe president said: "I quite
sympathize with the suggestion of your
mayor, that it is one of the proper gov
ernment functions to improve and open
to safe navigation the great water ways
of our country. The government of the
United States has reserved to itself the
exclusive control of all the navigable in
land waters, and that being so, it is of
course incumbent upon the government
to see that the people have the best pos
sible use of them. They are important,
as they furnish cheap transportation
and touch points that are often either
for economy or natural reasons inaccess
ible to railway traffic."
Postmaster-General Wanamaker also
made a short address.
At Celilo, the president visited the
cannery establishment of J. 11. TarHe,
and was presented a large box of salmon
caught this morning.
Pendleton, Ore., May 7. —The presi
dent and party visited Pendleton at 5:10
o'clock this evening, and had a grand
reception.
PERU WANTS RECIPROCITY.
Minister Solar on Hand to Negotiate a
Treaty with Uncle Sam.
Chicago, May 7. —A Washington spe
cial says : Peru wants reciprocity with
the United States. Minister Solar is
now in New York, but will come to
Washington to present his credentials
soon after President Harrison returns.
Though he comes as the regulai accred
ited minister, it is understood that Solar
is really on a special mission to nego
tiate a reciprocity arrangement with the
United States. Closer trade relations
with the United States are important
to Peru. It is the only
South American country, besides
i brazil, which produces sugar in large
quantities, so it is important to Peru
that it insures a lasting free market for
this production. It has also a growing
export trade in bides. These products,
wili form the basis of the concessions to"
be made to the United States. The
reciprocity arrangement between Peru
and the United States will he likely to
give the same priviliges to all citizens of
the United States who are developing
the mining and other industries of that
country.
FORCED VASSALAGE.
Unwilling Workers Held in Bondage by
the Coke Kings.
Pittsburg, Pa., May 7.—A Scottdale,
Pa., special says: The leaders are
greatly agitated today over information
that they say they have, that tbe coke
companies are holding new men brought
here, who refuse to work under surveil
lance, and will not permit them to leave
the works. They say about fifty men
quartered in the houses at Central, and
nearly that many at one of the Leisen
ring works, will not work. They say
neither can they leave on account of
armed guards, who turn rifles at them
when they try to get away. The coke
companies, when asked if such measures
are being resorted to, made a positive
denial.
A Protest Against Maxwell.
Chicago, May 7. —John Thorpe, oi
New York, president of the society of
American florists, has come to Chicago
for the purpose of objecting to the ap
pointment of Walter H.Maxwell as chief
of the department of horticulture. They
claim that Maxwell has not had proper
training for the department, as he is riot
a horticulturist, and as to California, it
has little right to claim the appoint
ment.

Milton, Cal., May 7.—There were
light showers during the night, but not

RUBY ATWOOD'S MASH.
A SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD GIRL ELOPES
WITH A REDLANDS MAN.
The Escapade of Mr. Lester—His Wife
Catches Him and Takes Him Home,
But He and Ruby Elude Her.
The following special dispatch was re
ceived at. the Herald office yesterday:
Redlands, May 7.—James Lester, a
married man living in Colton and work
ing in Redlands, eloped on Monday
afternoon with Miss Ruby Atwood, a
pretty girl only 115 years old, who has
been "working in a boarding-house here.
They started for Los Angeles, but were
met accidentally by Mrs. Lester in the
depot at Sun Bernardino. Mrs. Lester
took her husband home and kept him
overnight, and sent him back to work
the next morning at Redlands, but as he
hag not returned to work it is supposed
he has rejoined Ruby in Los Angeles.
The above undoubtedly is the sequel
to the following incident related in the
San Bernardino Courier of Wednesday:
In the thriving city of Redlands was
once a happy home. The young wife
and husband lived happily together in
each other's love, and all went well. A
few days' since the husband went off to
work for a few days. The young wife,
lonely without him, went to Riverside
to vieit friends. Again getting home
sick, she left tbe orange city and started
for Redlands. When she arrived in this
city and went into the Motor waiting
room on E, near Third St., lo and behold,
there sat "hubby" with another woman,
with whom he,waß about to elope to the
City of Angels. How that young wife's
eyes did flash fire when that scene met
her gaze. For a minute or two things
were interesting; the husband was not
in it, but tbe woman with whom he was
got the full benefit of the angry little
wife's tongue. As a consequence
"hubby" marched back to the city of
Redlands, while the would-be "destroyer
of a happy home" continued her journey
to Loa Angeles alone. The names the
reporter was unable to get, as both are
strangers in this city. It is safe to pre
dict that "Mr. Hubby" has had enough,
and it is hoped he will forever more
throw aside the thoughts of deserting
his loving wife, settle down and com
mence raising oranges such as only Red
lauds can boast.

No One Need Drown Now.
An Italian baa just arrived in London
with an "instantaneous, self expanding
life saving belt," by which he expects to
enrich himself from the pockets of tho
people who are nervous at sea. It has
already boon adopted by tho principal
Bteamship companies of Italy. The
unique feature of this new life saving
belt is that it may be worn around tho
body while promenading about the decks
during the day, and is not even taken
off in bed. It weighs about twice as
much as one of tho ordinary canvas or
leather belts sold for general use.
In its finished state it is about the last
thing in tho world that a prudent man
would place confidenco in if he waa to
attempt to jump for his life from the
deck of a sinking vessel into tho sea.
But tho moment the belt touches the
water two chemical substances contained
in it are instantly united, and it begins
to inflate with gas. What these sub
stances are is the inventor's secret. He
claims that one belt will keep the most
heavily clothed person afloat for forty
eight hoars. For ladies the belts are
made of silk, for men of canvas,—Bos
ton Transcript.
A Rare Piece of Wood.
A singularly beautiful oak plank—in
tended as a jamb of a clothes closet
came to tbe Pulitzer building recently.
Its rare markings evidently escaped the
eye of the sawmill man. It is about 8
feet long and 14 inches wide. Near the
outer edge the longitudinal grain of tbe
wood resembles ridges of sand on tho
seashore. The middle is a combination
of "bird's eyes" that at a distance ap
pear to stand out in relief, and elliptical
lines delicately shaded from a deep
brown to a white. Tho gradation of the
coloring is exquisite, and looks to be tho
result of art rather than of nature. The
*'eyo3" aro perfect aud resemble inlaid
mosaics. Thero is not a split nor a flaw
iv the entice plank. Its beauty lies in
the fact that the markings are finer than
those found in maple, and it has all the
satin like appearance of that beautiful
wood. Instead of adorning the mantel
of a hrond throated fireplace its prosaic
place will be as the guardian of over
coats and 71 hats.—New York World.

"John Orth" and Hl* Mother.
The Grand' Duchess of Tuscany has
not gone into mourning for her missing
son "John Orth," or Archduke John,
a"nd at the Austrian court there is a bus
picion that this eccentric prince is mere
ly in hiding. He did not secure to him
self all the obscurity he wished when ho
assumed tho name of John Orth, for by
that name ho was known to the whole
world, and everybody persisted in treat
ing him liko an archduke traveling in
cognito. John Orth'a friends say that
this worried him considerably, and they
think it highly probable that ho has now
assumed another name and is living iv
South America. Some also think that
his mother is aware of this and has com
mmiicated tho fact privately to tho em
peror, but that the*6ecret will be kept so
far as tho public is concerned.—Pall
Mall Gazette.
Untruthfulness in Courts of Justice.
The judgo of Birmingham county
court is driven to despair by the un
truthfulness of the parties who come be
fore him. In commenting on a case the
other day he declared that this was the
fifth instanco that morning in which
more or less respectable persons had been
guilty in tho witness box of "the most
deliberate lying." To such a pass have
things now come that he described him
self as going home sick at heart, day by
day, from bearing people givoeach other
tho lie direct in matters about which
there could be no possible mistake. Hap
pily the state of things at the local quar
ter sessions is not quite so bad, though
according to Mr. Neale, tho recorder, it
is bad enough.—London Tit-Bits.
