day—Notes and Announcements
From Various Sources.
The members ol the Salvation army in
this city are making great preparations
for the reception of their leaders, Com
mander and Mrs. Booth, who are to vis
it Los Angeles on the 20th. In addition
to Commander Booth there will be other
distinguished officers, among whom will
be Major Kyle, in charge of the Pacific
coast and tbe officers of the Southern
California division. The army will ten
der a reception to these visitors at their
hall on South Spring street the evening
of the 20th. On Sunday, the 21st, two
great meetings will be held in the Pa
vilion. The one at 2:30 will be an expo
sition meeting, and at 7:30 Commander
and Mrs, Booth will speak on Darkest
Kngland and New York's Inferno. On
Monday, the 22d, will take place the
great escort march, with mounted and
unmounted warriors, a war chariot, cos
tumes and prisoners oi war; also music
and songs. The procession will escort
Commander and Mrs. Booth through
Spring and Main streets and Broadway
to the First Methodist church, where
Mrs. Booth will speak of the Past, Pres
ent and Future of the Salvation Army
in the United States. Altogether the
occasion promises to be a great one, not
only to the members of the Salvation
army, but to all those interested in the
enormous and comprehensive plan of
reform contemplated by the author of
In Darkest England.
At the First Presbyterian church, the
morning sermon by Doctor Russell was
from Acts 2:41-45., on "The Character
istics of the Early Christian Church."
The book of the Acts is a gallery, filled
with pictures of the New Testament
church. This picture of the second
chapter carries us back to the days when
the stream of Christian life and work
was clear and limpid, unmixed with er
ror, heresy, sectarianism, with Christ as
the fountainhead. First of all; chief,
most ; essential, is the abiding and
abounding presence of tbe Holy Spirit.
His presence makes a living church.
His absence is the sure proof that a
church is dead. His presence insures
other blessed qualities, as laws of the
church, and His ordinances, viz: Faith
in the Word, and a patient study of its
truths; fellowship and abounding
charity, love of the brethren and zeal
for souls; prayer and earnest, contin
uous evangelistic work. These, I thank
God, are in a large measure your dis
tinguishing qualities as a church. God
help you to develop them more and
more, and cause you to abound in every
good word and work.

A Boating Party at West Lake Park
Come to Grief.
There was an accident on the water at
West Lake park yesterday afternoon
which, but for the promptness and en
ergy of tbe keeper of tbe boat house,
might have resulted fatally to several
people. A gentleman and two ladies,
one of whom was carrying a baby in her
arms, engaged a sailboat at the landing
and started out auspiciously to enjoy a
ride, the gentleman stating that he
knew how to handle a sailboat and
needed no assistance. He showed a
good deal of skill for awhile, and the
party had made several turns about the
lake before the accident occurred, when,
having approached the east shore, it be
came necessary to "go about" and take
another tack. The maneuver was made
carelessly and tbe boom came about
with such force that, together with the
weight of the four occupants of the
yacht, who were all on the lea side, the
thing capsized.
The screams of the women as they
floundered in the water could be heard
all over the park, and assistance was at
once directed toward them. A single
oarsman near by reached the spot first,
but the lifeboat came immediately after,
and the women and baby were rescued
without difficulty and placed in it.
The unlucky yachtsman gave valuable
assistance in getting his companions
out of the water, and as soon as all were
landed, shivering and wet, at the boat
house, a carriage was sent for and they
were conveyed to their homes. The
baby was the least injured of the four,
and chuckled and laughed after the oc
currence as if it really enjoyed the

If people know you come here to col
lege, the question you get tired of an
swering is, "Oh, so you go to Harvard,
don't you?" If you don't feel strong
enough to explain you say "Yes," but
really that isn't true at all The annex
has nothing to do with the college in any
system of coeducation, bnt we do have
just the same professors and have to pass
the same examinations. A man gives a
lecture to the boys, and then comes over
and gives the same one to us.
Even the "Harvard Annex" is not our
real name. The story goes that twelve
years ago, when the society was started,
there was only one girl here, and as the
fellows never saw her they called her
"an x, the missing quantity." However
true this may be, the "Annex" we re
main, and, indeed, how could you talk
about "The Society for the Collegiate In
struction of Women?" We haven't any
dormitories, but recite in the old Fay
house, which has just been beautifully
made over for us, and here luncheon is
served for those who want it.
Most of the 170 girls live in Boston
and vicinity. There are only three or
four New Yorkers, and whenever these
chance to meet they always seem per
fectly delighted.
We really have very good times, here.
You see there are no rules and regula
tions to speak of. The only one that oc
curs to me is a notice posted up on the
bulletin board requesting us not to use
the tables as chairs. It's a great temp

He Ties His Horse to a Telegraph Pole
and Walks Out Into the Great Unnnda
ble—The Facts in the Case.
Here's another mysterious disappear
ance. C. H. Dyar is a member of the
firm of C. H. Dyar & Co., real estate
brokers and insurance agents of Ontario.
Mr. Dyar left Ontario day before yester
day, says Sunday's issue of the San Ber
nardino Times-Index, in a buggy on a
business trip. Shortly before noon yes
terday he stopped at the residence of
Parley King, on the Rialto bench, about
three miles from this city, and requested
to see Mr. King. He was not at home,
but Mrs. King informed Dyar that he
would he there at 1 o'clock. Dyar
wanted to insure Mr. King's house,
and when he left he said he would
return at that time. As far as known
at present Mr. Dyar has not
been seen since. When Mr. King
returned home he noticed a horse hitched
to a buggy tied to a telegraph pole a
short distance east of his house. He
paid no particular attention to it, and
after dinner went to work again. On
returning in the evening Mr. King found
the rig still there and became a little un
easy. As the horse was there at sun
down Mr. King put it up and fed it,
and this morning drove it into town and
notified the city marshal of the facts re
lated above.
Marshal Thomas notified the sheriff's
office, and then in company with Mr.
King went to search for Mr. Dyar.
Sheriff Seymour also sent out men to aid
in the search. It is Mr. Thomas's im
pression that Dyar is dead. It was
learned that he was a temperate man,
of most exemplary habits.
Mr. Thomas returned from Rialto
shortly after noon, and reported that
nothing could be learned of Dyar's
whereabouts. He and Mr. King, in
company with Joe Arbois, of the sher
iff's office, made a very thorough search
of the country round about Rialto, but
found no traces of the man, nor anyone
who had seen him. The belief that he
had got onto a train and left the town is
gaining ground, but no reason for such
action is known, His father came down
from Ontario to Rialto this morning, but
no word has been received from him by
anyone here.
Mr. Dyar is a man of about 35 years of
age, and,has a wife and three children.
The following dispatch was received
last night about the man:
Ontario, Cal., June 7. —C. H. Dyar,
the insurance agent who disappeared at
Rialto on Friday, has been heard from.
His wife received a letter today evi
dently mailed on the train. He said he
had gone away to make some money,
but he gave no clew to his present
Wonderful Transformation by Redskins
of the Island of Metlakahtla.
Rev. W. Duncan, of Metlakahtla,
Alaska, is a portly, benevolent looking
old gentleman of perhaps sixty-five
years, and the world has. been made
better by the grand work in which the
declining years of his life are being
spent. When interviewed by a reporter
he was reticent at first in speaking of
the fruits of his philanthropic labors in
the land by the frozen sea, saying that a
description of the colony he had founded
would seem better coming from the hps
of disinterested parties.
"Metlakahtla," said the venerable mis
sionary, "is situated on an island in the
archipelago in the southeastern part of
Alaska. It is a colcny founded three
years and a half ago, when I organized
thirteen bands of British Columbia In
dians, and by showing them the virtues
of a city and government of their own
and instilling in their minds the beauties
of a civilized existence, induced them to
migrate to the far north, where they
would live in peace and security and
where they would not be disturbed in
their peaceful possessions,
"Today there is a city of 800 souls at
Metlakahtla, and the settlement is a
flourishing and happy one. lam one of
those who reject the declaration that the
only good Indian is the dead one. lam
able to demonstrate that the best Indian
is a live one.
"Three years ago the forest primeval
stood on the site where now many happy
Indians live, in many pleasant cottages.
There are sixty-one capacious houses in
the city. For three years I was the only
white man in the settlement. I have re
cently been joined by an assistant, how
ever, in the person of Dr. Blewett. You
might say that the Indians have an eye
to real estate values, for they all wanted
corner lots, so that I waa compelled to
divide the blocks each into four lots.
Everybody is satisfied, for an inside lot
is not to be found there.
"The inhabitants live by hunting and
fishing, but the latter occupation has
branched out into a large industry now,
and lam here to obtain necessary ma
chinery and an outfit for a salmon can
nery the*e.
"I would rather have a tourist speak
of our colony than to dwell upon its
merits myself. Should you visit our
island you would be surprised to find a
city of Indians and natives with only
two exceptions. We have a government
which is an Indian council presided over
by an Indian chief. The young ones are
taught in commodious schools, and in
my absence a native teacher is instruct
ing them.
"In olden days the Indian tribes were
envious of each other, and feuds were
incessant and war was a business. In
our colony the hatchet is buried out of
sight, the tribal jealousies are forgotten
in the educated life and the weapons of
war have been molded into implements
of peace.
"We have a native corps of constables
and officers to attend to the city's health
and sanitation. We have entertainments,
too, and splendid music is furnished by
our Indian band of twenty instruments.
We have a large sawmill conducted by
Indians, and never was a happier colony
than that of the.British Columbia Indians
on the island of Metlakahtla."—Seattle
"What it takes to make a paradise,"
some one has said, "depends upon the
person who is going there." There was
once an artist who painted a picture of
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
It was exhibited publicly. One day the

He drew near and listened to what the
farmers were saying.
"Well, John," said one, "what do you
think of it?"
"It's pretty good," said the other, "but
there's one thing about it that strikes
me as a little mite queer."
"What's that?"
"Why, he's got Eve with a Rhode Isl
and greening in her hand."
*Well. what of it?"
"Hum! Seeing that the first Rhode
Island greening was raised in this cen
tury, I don't quite see how they could
have had them in paradise!"
"No greenings!" exclaimed the other,
contemptuously; "how do you suppose
they could have got along in the Garden
of Eden without Rhode Island green
ings?"—-Yoath's Companion.
Safe Sheep Stealing.
Among the guests at the Palace is
Joseph Cohen, of Red Bluff, who is
credited with owning nearly or quite
half of that portion of the state lying
north of Yuba county. Sheep and cattle
form the greater portion of Mr. Cohen's
wealth aside from his landed interests,
and it is said that in order to acquit a
man who has been arrested for sheep or
cattle stealing it is only necessary to
prove that they were stolen from Joseph
"At one time," said United States At
torney Garter, "I was employed by Mr.
Cohen to transact a portion of his legal
business, and among other things I had
to assist in the prosecution of men "or
stealing sheep. I can truthfully say that
Ido not know of a single case where a
man was convicted by a jury when it
was proved by the defense that the prop
erty had originally belonged to Cohen."
