RAMONA GRADUATES Commencement at the Holy Names Convent. An Enjoyable Entertainment Provided for Visitors. The Graduates and Their Creditable Performance. The Essays Delivered by the Young La dles—A Number of Well Deserved Medals Distributed—The Proceedings. The special train on the Rapid Transit road had its cars well filled, and some passengers had to stand during the trip out to the convent of the Holy Names yesterday afternoon. Arrived there the crowd was packed carefully and skillful ly in the main hall of the school, and had time to look about before the ex ercises. The hall was handsomely decorated by the pupils, evergreens, flowers and paintings by the scholars being taste fully arranged about the walls with pleasing effect. The programme began with an over ture upon two pianos by Misses Mar garet McDevitt, Ida Smythe. Mary Hannon and Francis Hannon. An opening address by Miss Etta White followed the overture. The young lady presented a fine appearance ou the platform, has an exquisitely mod ulated and well-trained voice, while the composition of the address would have been a credit to a person twice her age. The singing class came out and filled the platform to sing, with sweet, well trained voices, The Crimson Glow of Sunset Fades. The essay, Woman's Sphere, by Miss Edith Shorb, was oneof the finest things on the programme. It was a weli con structed, well written paper, with a poetical strain running th rough it like a thread of gold in an already brilliant fabric. A very fine part of the programme was the performance of In Old Madrid, upon the mandolin, guitar, violin and piano, as follows: Piano, Miss Ida Smythe ; guitar, Miss Etta White; man dolin, Misses Emily Barbelingand Lizzie Workman ; violin, Miss Nettie White. The elocution class recited in concert Corlstrom's Wife, in a way to enhance the effect of that most beautiful poem. As one voice and one person the class went through the recitation, winning a storm of applause. Another musical piece, an instru mental double duet upon two pianos, came next, by Misses Margaret McDev itt, Emily Barbeling, Julia Rhodes aud Minnie Cummings. The elocution class came on again now, this time for a piece part sung and part recited, Longfellow's Old Clock on the Stairs, in which the perfection of the musical and elocutionary training of the class was particularly apparent. Don Juan, a piano duo by Miss Mar garet McDevitt and Ida Smythe, was a particularly well rendered performance. Next came an event not on the pro gramme, a comic recitation, The Cork screw, by Miss Ida Smythe, all the more enjoyable, perhaps, because unexpected. The audience tried to bring the young lady back for an encore, but encores were not in order, so they had to settle down to listen to the essay of Miss Margaret McDevitt, one of the two' graduates. Misses Mc- Devitt took for her theme the Utility of Physical Sciences, and treated the sub ject in an able manner, drawing several lessons, moral and otherwise, from the facts and theories she wrote of. Tbe last part of the musical and lit erary programme was Roses and Violets, a vocal quartette by Misses Katie and Ida Smythe, Emily Barbeling and Anita Lazzarevich. Miss Shorb and Miss McDevitt were here called forward to receive their graduation certificates and beautiful gold medals of merit. Ribbons of merit were awarded as follows: First ribbon, Misses Ida Smythe and Anita Lazzarevitch ; second, Grace Deer ing; third, Susie Bernard ; fourth, Ame lia Carson ; fifth, Julia Rhodes; sixth, Elizabeth Workman; seventh, Etta White. Second course ribbons were awarded to Miss Rosie Bernard, Eva Solari, Adelia Solari and Elva Shay. A ribbon of encouragement was given little Myra Phillipa. A gold medal, presented by Hon. S. M. White, presented for excellence in Christian doctrine, was awarded Miss Edith Shorb. Other gold medals were as follows: Politeness, presented by Mrs. J. Bernard, awarded to Miss Grace Deering; painting, presented by J, De- Barth Shorb, awarded to Miss Anita Lazzarrevitch; vocal music, presented by the Provincial house, at Oakland, presented to Mißs Ida Smythe; instru mental music, by Mr. J. M. Tiernan, of San Gabriel, Mies Emily Barbeling; mathematics, by Mrs. Scott Chapman, of San Gabriel, presented to Miss Mary Hannon ; French, by Mr. J. Lazzarevich, of Los Angeles, to Miss Susie Bernard ; penmanship, by Mrs. L. L. Bradbury, to Amelia Carson. Special honors in the first English class were also accredited to Miss Grace Deering, Miss Anita Lazzarevich, Miss Ramoua Shorb, Julia Rhodes, Nellie White, Emily Barbeling, Lillie Bodkin, Susie Bernard. In the second English class honois were" awarded to Francis Hannon, Min nie Cummings, Amelia Carson, Eliza beth Workman. In the third English class honors went to Etta White, Miss Roaie Bernard, Marie Skinner, Annie Scovell and Lucretia Richards. In the fourth class mention is made of Made line White, Ethel Shorb, Eva Solari, Adela Solari, Edith Kellogg, Marga-et Blooner, Lizzie Solari, Elva Shay and Bessie Kellogg. The fifth class awards honors to Miss Grace Jordan. Among other novelties in the school awards were honors awarded for darn ing, plain sewing and domestic economy which were greeted by a party of young men in the rear of the room with en thusiastic applause. When the exercises were all over the visitors adjourned to the refreshment and sitting-room, where they were en tertained until train time, when all the visitors took their departure. RETRENCHMENT ORDINANCE. The Mayor Does Not Think He Will Sign It. "I don't think I will sign the retrench ment ordinance," said Mayor Hazard yesterday to a Hksaid reporter. "There's Robinson, who is really the auditor of the city, why should he be cutoff; why, he catches thousands of extravagant and false charges against the city. His ability in this matter was known when they appointed him. There is some good in the ordinance, but a great deal that is bad." "Will you accept theoffer of the coun cilmen to give up their salaries if you give yours?" "No, sir. I think I earn my salary, but I tell you whal I am willing to do, and that "is to compare records as to money spent for the good of the public with the whole council." THE BIG STACK. Mr. Andy McNally Completes a Fine Piece of Work. Yesterday afternoon a Herald report er paid a visit to the power house of the Belt Electric road and found everything working in apple-pie order. The road, according to present indications, will be in operation on or about August Ist, al though part of the line will be operated by the let of July. The power house of the system is a gigantic affair, which will be completed in less than two weeks. Yesterday the most difficult piece of work was completed by Andy McNally, the brick contractor. That this adds to his many laurels in this line goes with out saying. The smoke stack was yes terday finished, and at noon the Amer ican flag could be plainly seen floating from the top from every part of the city. This meant the completion of McNally's work, the great smoke stack. In order to give the Herald readers a knowledge of the gigantic proportions of the smoke exhauster, the foundation of the smoke stack is thirteen feet below the surface, and is composed of the best Portland cement. From base to dome the height is 175 feet, 22 feet in diameter at the base and 11 feet at the dome. Iv this structure there were used 400,000 bricks. For the first thirty feet the stack is straight, for the next forty feet octagon, and for the rest of the distance it con sists of thirty-two angles. It is a very difficult and complicated piece of brick work. At 1:45 Mr. McNally hoisted the American flag, and laid the first piece of the last stone coping of the stack. This is the highest and best piece of brick work done at any place west of Chicago. Mr. McNally descended after laying his final piece* of coping and invited a Hbbald reporter to ascend, and again he took the lead, others following. For 140 feet there was an elevator, and the remaining thirty-five feet of ascent was made by scaffolding. In the party was Superintendent Muir, of the Southern Pacific railroad, who staid with the pro gramme, although the climbing was not the most comfortable in.this world. The view from this 175-feet altitude beggars description. The descent was made with little trouble, and on arriving at the bottom the courageous trio were greeted with many cheers from all the awaiting coterie. Captain A. W. Barrett invited the gentlemen to inspect the other parts of the works, which was accepted, and in a later number of the Herald will be given a complete description of the building and mammoth railroad enter prise. TEMECULA TIN. The Process of Getting Out and Work ing the Ores. The vein in which they are now work ing varies in width from 4 feet to 10 feet. The process of reducing the ore is very simple, and is called crushing, concen trating and smelting. The ore comes from the stamp mill reduced to a fine powder and passes into the concentrat ors, where, by washing, so much of the foreign material is eliminated that it comes out about 70 per cent, oxide of tin, and resembles tine black sand. It is then smelted and molded into bars, ingots or piya, as it is variously called, of two sizes, weighing 00 pounds and 100 pounds each. One difficulty in smelting is that the great heat required to reduce the stannic oxide (1500 degrees) may also partially reduce other oxides which then enter the bath with the tin, or certain chemical changes may take place by which some of the tin passes into the slag or ia lost in other ways. There is always more or less waste from these causes, the amount depending on the nature of the ore, the fuel used and the kind of a furnace in which it is smelted. The great object is to reduce the tin as quickly as possible and remove it at once from the influence of the heat, and it is so arranged that the molten metal flows immediately into a bath outside the furnace. In attempt ing to reduce the waste to a minimum, Superintendent Mathey constructed a combustion chamber for the use of crude petroleum as fuel. As an experi ment the result was beyond his expecta tions, it being easy to secure even a greater temperature than that required and the time of smelting was reduced from seven or eight hours to four and a half hours, with a great saving of tin in consequence. Mr. Mathey's invention has been patented and is considered a valuable improvement. The market value of tin metal at pres ent is 25 cents per pound ; and as one pound will plate 20 pounds of sheet iron with the best quality plate (though most of our tinware cannot boast so thick a coat), it will be seen that the McKinley tariff of 4 cents per pound, which takes effect in 1893, will give the home product an advantage of $80 a ton without appreciably increasing the price of tin plate to the consumer. Though the best tin of commerce comes from Banca, an island of the Malay Archipelago, the largest quantity of it has been supplied by the Cornwall mines, the annual output being about 5000 tons of metal, but of late years Auetralia has come into sharp competi tion. Our new mine has already made two shipments of pig tin via San Diego, and when the reduction works are com pleted and worked to their full capacity of 150 tons of ore per day, yielding the present average of 10 per cent., the an nual product of metallic tin will amount to about 5000 tons, or almost enough to displace the imported article, thereby distributing in our own country the many millions of dollars heretefore sent abroad for tin in various forms—[River side Press. Sudden Deaths. Heart disease is by far the most frequent cause of sudden death, which in three out of four eases is unsuspected. The symptoms are not generally understood. These are: A habit of lying on the right side, short breath, pain or distress in side, back: or shoulder, irregular pulse, asthma, weak and hungry spells, wind in stomach, swelling of ankles or dropsy, oppres sion, dry cough and smothering Dr. Miles' illustrated book on heart disease, free at all druggists, who sell and guarantee Dr. Miles' unequaled New Heart Cure, and his Restorative Nervine, which euies nervousness, headache, sleeplessness, effects of drinking etc. It con taius no opiates.

The board of trustees held their regu lar weekly meeting, Monday evening, when the insurance and wharf water came up for disposal. The difficulty with the Pacific Coast Insurance union grew out of a license imposed on each company doing business here to the amount of $(>.OU per year, which seems to have raised their temper to a Yuma heat, and the union, through their repre sentative, has given the council the alter native of taking off the license or having the rate of insurance of Sauta Monica raised 20 per cent. This threat has had the effect of raising the ire of the board of trustees, who say, in substance, raise and be d—d, we will not be bulldozed, and refused flatly, by vote of four to one, to take off the tax, and thus they very properly met the bluff. In the wharf matter, there were two reports presented from the commit tee of the whole, to whom was present ed the petition of the citizens request ing the board to call an election for the purpose of voting on the ques tion of bonding the town for the purpose of building a wharf. The majority report was signed byMessrs. Carrillo, Lewis and Vawter; was in favor of calling said election, and was accompanied by an ordinance to that effect. The other was signed by Messrs. Allen and Stein, who believed it to be inopportune to build the same at pres ent. The proposed ordinance was de feated, it requiring four votes according to the statutes in such cases, and thus the matter of wharf building was again indefinitely postponed. After the vote was taken, considerable amusement was caused by John F. Hogan, who was in the audience in attendance, asking the gentlemen who defeated the same to state their reassns for not allowing the citizens to be the judge of the matter. The matter of the bids for electric lighting and franchise granting was postponed for one week. The board ordered the city attorney to confer with the fire company, and draw up a suitable notice for bids for 800 feet of fire hose. H. A. Wlnslow has on exhibition a specimen of the snowplant, which he brought home from the Yosemite, in the show window of the red store. J. G. Bird and family, of San Bernar dino, have secured a fine location here where they will spend the summer months. Mrs. Robert E. McGregor and Master Nestor Hasson McGregor arrived yester day. The youngster will be the guest of his great grand father, A. Kier, for a few days. Henry T. Gironx has a fine two-year old gelding which he has just brought in which promises to be a world-beater. Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Walsh and Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Montgomery have taken the Shinn cottage on the south side where they will spend the summer. E. D. Suits has a rattlesnake at the Pioneer market which is attracting COUNTY CENSUS. much attention from the visitors to this establishment. PASADENA. Mrs. 0. D. Daggett gave a delightful lawn party yesterday evening. Nearly a bundled guests were present. The teunis club met yesterday even ing, at Mr. May's residence, to discuss the matter of holding an invitation tournament. A special committee of the Pasadena Choral society met last night, to draw up a constitution and by-laws for the permanenent government of the associ ation. H. H. Rose will give a stag whist party this evening. The high school election will be held today. It looks as if the votes will all be cast in favor of retaining such an in stitution here. J. C. Fitzhenry and family leave to morrow, to spend' some time at the sea side. A big pile of wood in the planing mill yard" on Broadway caught fire early yesterday afternoon from a spark from a Santa Fe locomotive. The department responded and the flames were extin guished before any damage had been done. Miss in town yesterday. City Assessor Cambell and his depu ties are getting their work well along. W. N.

ONTARIO, An unusual large number of home seekers and visitors are in Ontario at present, considering the season of the year. The following are some of them : D. Andrews, Lincoln, Neb.; Miss Rice, Cincinnati; Miss Pugsley, Denver; J. G.Tritch, W.J. Calvert, Denver; Will A. Robb and family, Aledo, 111.; R. W. Simpson, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Alfred A. True, of Los Angeles, has charge of C. H. Conant's drug store while the proprietor is making a visit to his old home in Concord, Mass. An election for Echool trustees was held Saturday. B. C. Shepherd was elected, receiving a majority of 15 out of 100 votes cast. The 2000 acres of wheat, lying south west of town, is ready to harvest. Some of the fruit-growers of Cuca monga have contracted to sell their apri cots to the Colton cannery for IJ£ cents a pound. The growers in this immedi ate locality will dry most of their apri cots, as experience has taught them it is more profitable to dispose of their crop in this way than to sell it to the evaporator or cannery. It is a notorious fact that growers of deciduous fruits in the southern part of the state have never received as large prices for their fruit as growers in the northern part. There is no reason why this should be so. A co operative union among the growers for the purpose of preparing and marketing the crops would be a commendable project. A. P. Harwood bought the Stoddard property at the head of Euclid avenue, Wednesday, for a consideration of $3500. Five men are at work iv the gold dig gings near the summit of "Old Baldy." On the recent examination the Ontario public school made the best record in the county. Out of a class of fourteen, eleven graduated. REDONDO.

Peculiar Detective Tactics. Editors Herald : The police depart ment since the Sunday-closing ordi nance passed have been entrusted with its enforcement. It is hard work for the officers, for the reason that the ordinance prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors on that day does not deny the proprietors or employees of saloons the right to enter and keep open their establishments on that day if they choose. A friend may come along, and once he is inside, the door is closed for a time. The officer cannot get in to see that a violation has taken place, and hence it is easy to see that the ordinance is faulty. To remedy this, it is regrettable to admit it, the po lice department demeans itself by be coming what the French call "mouchards" and "agents provoca teurs." That a police officer should thus de mean himself as to play the part of a "provoking agent," one who induces another to commit a crime, for the sake of securing an arrest, seems incompre hensible under our free institutions. And yet such is the case. No convic tion has yet been secured for the viola tion of the Sunday ordinance, which was not the result of some petty treach ery or unfairness in which the arresting officer acted despicably. There is no law in any part of the civ ilized world which countenances an "agent provocateur," one who,having an official position unknown to the other, leads that other into crime foi the pur pose of depriving him of his liberty and causing him to be punished. Some years ago, in Belgium, one of the heads of the national police, was ig nominiously kicked out of his depart ment for having indulged in such a course. And throughout Europe such provocateurs are looked upon with loath ing and disgust. If the city council and the police com missioners do not want a respectable de partment of the city government to fall into disrepute, they will not again, as on last Sunday, require the officers to go on their beats in private clothes, stars hidden away, to coax unwary sa loonists, by means of prevaricatory statements, to let them drink in their establishments. If there must be spies and detectives of that kind, it were better that their dirty work should be done by those who drafted the ordinance and brought it to a successful issue. Square Dealer.

I had a oousulta tion, and after an examtnation of my pulse he gave mo a powder for my lips and medicine in ternally, and said he would cure me ln one week or ten days, and at the expiration of that time declined to give me any more medicine, because I was cured, which statemeut I fully endorse, for I have not been so well for a long time. JOSEPH R. DUBBS, February 25,1891. Los Angeles, Cal. I had beeu sick five months, paid out large sums of money for dcotors and medicines, but derived no benefit. Dr. Wong Him was recom mended to me by a friend. I did not think I could get well, as my lungs and kidneys were very bad and getting worse all the time. Dr. Woug Him took me ln this condition: he has iv two months' time entirely cured me, and now I feel it my duty to testify fn his behalf. I wish to recommend him to the public as an efficient and skillful physician. THOMAS WHITE. Los Angeles, May 13,1891. DOCTOR WHITES Private Dispensary, 133 N.
