The feature of last evening's perform ance of Belshazzar by Mr. Wood's ama teur company at the Los Angeles theater was Miss Burnett's waltz song. Her clear voice and trueness to time and note, and grace of person captivated the audience. All that she needed to make her number well nigh perfect was a freedom from self-consciousness, and a knowledge of stage dancing. Mrs. Owens sang too little and was on the stage too seldom. Dr. Manning looked every inch a king but his voice was not equal to the role or the house. Mrs. Haralson as the queen showed herself the possessor of a powerful soprano voice which has been highly cultured. The chorus contained some of the prettiest girls in Los Angeles, their voices were clear and fresh ; that they and the orchestra occasionally parted company at the wrong time, was cer tsinly not the fault of the young women ; they were too good looking to be blamed for anything. Treasurer Mansfield, of the opera house, states that the advance sale for the performances of the Men and Women company this week, are larger than any on record at that house. By a mistake of thetypes the Herald stated yesterday that Diplomacy would be played on Tuesday night; it should have read Fri day night. John L. Sullivan will be at the Los Angeles on Friday night in Honest Hearts and Willing Hands. Belshazzar will probably be repeated next week for the benefit of the Bartlett post monument fund. # » Manager Martin Lehman returned yesterday from a trip around the south ern circuit. Manager Wyatt's benefit on Monday evening Bbould be remembered by thea ter patrons. MARRIAGE LICENSES. People Who Yesterday Secured Per missions to Wed.

FLEMIN& APPEARS TO ANSWER He Could Not Ob-y the Court Beoause He Was in Jail —The Selman Divorce Case—Notes. "Rev." Samuel J. Fleming was taken out of the county jail yestetday after noon and carried before Judge Van Dyke to show cause why he-' should not be punished for contempt in disobeying an order of the court made in the case the Long Beach company vs. the Chau tauqua assembly of Southern California and S. J. Fleming. The order in ques tion was made on May sth, and. com manded Fleming, as trustee of the as sembly, to turn over to the receiver of that organization, J. M. Elliott, all of the documents in his possession, con tracts for land sales, etc., within twenty days. The twenty days expired some time ago, and the receiver appealed to the court to enforce its order. When Fleming was put on the stand he said that he was ready and willing to obey the court, but that he had been in carcerated in the county jail a great deal of the time since the order was made and had been unable to do so. On this showing the case went over till Sat urday and the sheriff was instructed to accompany Fleming and Messrs. Carran and Snankland while the papers were being gathered together. THE SELMAN DIVORCE. M. B. Selman was granted a divorce from his wife, Frances J. Selman, by Judge Wade yesterday on the grounds of desertion. The couple were married in lowa in 1884. Some time later the husband came to California, established a residence here and in 1886 sent back to his wife asking her to join him. She did not do so, although he sent her money to pay her fare out, but wrote back refusing to come. The defendant made no appearance in the case and the decree was granted by default after the husband and a deposition was heard. THE PACIFIC RAILWAY RECEIVERSHIP. On motion of the attorneys for Edward Russell, one of the eastern creditors of the Pacific Railway company, Judge Wade yesterday issued an order instruct ing Receiver J. F. Crank not to pay out any moneys on account of the company except for the expenses of operating the road, and that when he applies to the court for permission to make other dis bursements, he must give three days' notice to the attorneys of the plaintiffs and intervenors. THE BARNCM BLAKE ESTATE. Judge Clark yesterday listened to ar guments on a motion for the compro mise of a claim held by the estate of Barnum Blake against Mrs. S. J. Ham mond, lessee of the Bellevue terrace. D. W. Field, as administrator of the estate, rented the hotel property to Mrs. Ham mond at the monthly rental of $400, with the understanding that the lessee was to keep the place in good order. Mrs. Ham mond had become a year in arrears, however, and the estate had been com pelled to pay $400 ior repairs. The es tate was in court yesterday on a motion on behalf of Mrs. Hammond to compro mise this $4800 back rent for $1800. The motion was contested by John F. Blake, one of the heirs, and the hearing was finally continued till the 19th inst. to allow of a compromise being effected... ARRESTED FOB LIBEL. : . Norman L. Melrose was put under arrest yesterday and brought before United States Commissioner Van Dyke on a charge of sending libelous matter through the mails. A complaint was sworn to on May 29 by J. H. Patton, charging Melrose with depositing in the postofiice at Acton a letter addressed to him and bearing the words on the en velope, below the name, "Defaulting County Clerk." The commissioner re leased Melrose on his own recognizance, and set his examination for July 23d.. COURT NOTES. John I. Caldwell was admitted to practice in the superior court by Judge Van Dyke yesterday on motion S. M. White, and on the presentation of a cer tificate from the United States district court.

FORCED TO DO IT, A Backward Season and a Heavy Stock Causes a Deep Cat In Frlees. . Now that the warm weather is well under way and people are flocking to the beaohes, there is considerable competition among the clothing establishments in this city. The well known Chicago Clothing Company, corner of North Spring and Franklin streets, is bidding for its share of patronage in a spirited manner. They -have secured a valuable acquisition to their company In tho person of Mr. W. B. Dun ning, whose reputation for booming the cloth ing business and placing it upon a solid basis is without a peer. Besides, he has a thorough knowledge of how to get up advertisements that catch the eye. He is an Invaluable man in his line. The Chicago Clothing Company has a mammoth stock of goods for the spring and summer trade and are cutting their goods down to bedrock prices. Mr. Dunning believes in adhering strictly to the one-price principle—not advertising one thing and selling another, but giving what he advertises. The large, airy and well lighted store will he kept open every evening. Hooded with electric lights, until 8 o'clock, except on Saturday evenings, when it will remain open until id o'clock. Some dealers cut prices after the season is well advanced, but Mr. Dunning has made the cut right at the beginning and h*s reduced some 2000 regular $16.50, 515 and 113.50 suits to the ridiculously low price of $9.90. Their fine cutaway suits for dresswear, and sack business suits have been cut from $22, $20 and SlB to $14.90. Boys' and children's clothing have been marked down from 10 to 25 per cent. Don't miss this great sacrifice sale, for it means dollars in your pockets. MARINE NEWS. San Pedro, lune 9, 1891. ARRIVED.

I had a disease of the skin and scalp that the doctors h re called eczema. My face was a complete scab and my head when I hod my hair cut closely looked as though It had been scalded. Am happy to say after I received a copy of jour treatise on skin diseases, I pur chased a set of Cuticubas. After 1 had taken the third set, it had all disappeared, and what I must tell you is that I was doctoring with several of the best physicians in this country for over a year, and none of them seemed to do the least bit of good.

PEOPLES' STORE—Wednesday, Jiioe 10th. The management of the People's Store are laying (treat stress upon new lines of goods which they have introduced this season, and'may be pardoned if in their vanity they so persistently dwell upon them to imDress the public with their ex ceptional value. During the past season we have associated with us a number of houses, who in the aggregate purchase millions of dollars. This is bought in one lump by what is called a syndicate, and subdivided as wanted by the firms com posing the same. One of these firms alone sells $26,000 worth of merchandise in a single day. It is easy to understand the "pull" such a syndicate has in the purchasing world. No lot, however large, is too great to handle, and as every body knows, quantity regulates price. Watch us during the remainder of the year, and by Christmas you'll acknowledge that the People's Store has been asleep in the past as compared with the new life that better goods at old prices will give it. Our goods will improve in quality, while our prices remain the same or are lowered. We have started, and are on the tidal wave. Come in today and see the sweep. Our Basement Salesroom Will Repay a Visit. DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT. Ladies want to buy stylish dress fabrics, and as reasonable as they can be sold.
