A HERO IN BRONZE. The Grant Monument Un veiled at Chicago. A Magnificent Memorial to the Great General. The Stately Structure a Triumph of the Sculptor's Art. Countless Thousands Present at the Unveiling-The Oration Delivered ky Judge Gresham—An Im posing Pageant. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Oct. 7.—Nearly a quarter of a million people gathered in one colos sal phalanx today on the beach of Lake Michigan, at Lincoln park. It was to j honor the memory of the nation's great soldier. A giant hero in the sky—that was what, suddenly outlined against the heavens through the smoke and roar of artillery, the huge bronze statue of General Grant looked to the tens of thousands on the shore and ships that had braved apparently threatening weather. The glorious sun shone just in the nick of time, and made perfect the apotheosis that before was as com plete and gigantic aB human hands could do.' Under a leaden sky, from which the rain had been falling at inter vals during the day, with sharp winds blowing across the lake and city, in the presence of a great throng who braved the elements, amid booming can non from the government vessels off shore, amid the screaming of whistles from the shipping, and the resounding strains of the Star Spangled Banner, played by many bands, with regimental, federal and state troops at present arms, while Grand Army veterans and civic societies were clustered about, the he roic bronze statue of the late General Ulysses S. Grant, upon a magnificent granite pedestal spanning the roadway at the top of the hill looking towards the lake, was unveiled. To the multitude present the great, silent figure, firm in the saddle, looking across the broad ex panse of the wave, seemed as if again in life, and, heedless of the excited throng about him, sjanning the horizon for enemies of the land which in God's providence he had been called to ma jestically defend. The enormous crowd gathered there formed an extraordinary figure, includ ing not only high civil and military dig nitaries of the nation, state and city, hut those gathered from far and near who were the closest to thejdeaci general personally—the wife who stood by him, and the veterans of his original regi ment, the famous old Twenty-first Illi nois infantry, with the identical colors unfurled at his first headquarters tent. The orator of the day was worthy of the occasion, distinguished like his sub ject, in camp and counsel, tbe stalwart soldier and jurist, General Walter Q. Gresham, judge of the United States court of appeals. A hush fell upon the thousands as Gre sham, facing the lake, stepped forward to tbe edge of the platform at the base of the monument. On either side in tiers on the green slopes, behind the speaker, the distinguished guests were given places—among them Mrs. General Grant, her white hair showing beneath her widow's bonnet. Massed in front ■were nearly 20,000 uniformed men— infantry, cavalry and artillery, both reg ular and state militia, grizzled veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, bright plumed Knights of Pythias, and many other similar semi-military and civic organizations; back of them the general public, and beyond an imposing flotilla of vessels, profusely decked with bunting, the steamers Michigan, Johnson and Fessenden, lake steamers, tugs, yachts, city fire boats, and miscellaneous lake craft. Leading up to this superb column was the formation on the lake front, three miles distant, of a great land parade, and its march to the statue under com mand of Major-General Nelson A. Miles, U. S. A. The procession was headed by a platoon of police, followed in order by United States regulars from Fort Sheri dan, infantry, cavalry and artillery; Illinois national guards, infantry and cavalry; Grand Army veterans, includ ing the Societies of the Armies of the Tennessee, the Cumberland and the Po tomac; distinguished guests in carriages, including Secretary Noble, Senator John Sherman, Governor Buckley, of Con necticut ; Governor Fifer, of Illinois, and Mrs. General John A. Logan. Next came Grand Army postß of the north west, forming an entire division; then Sons of Veterans and the Society of ex- Confederates, closing with civic socie ties. At the monument, Bishop John P. Newman offered prayer, then Colonel E. S. Taylor presented the monument, on behalf of the monument association, to the commissioners of Lincoln park. The unveiling followed, and General Gresham then delivered his address. The sculptor of the statue is Lewis Rebisso, of Cincinnati. It is of bronze, eighteen feet high, and represents General Grant seated on horseback, both man and animal in a position of rest. The general grasps a field glass in hia right hand, with the glass resting upon hia thigh, as after taking a careful survey of the field, suggesting as a whole, concentration of mind, confi dence and self reliance. In a letter regretting his inability to be present. President Harrison paid this tribute to General Grant: "He was a tower of strength and confidence in the crisis of our civil war. He redeemed the failures of other men, revived the courage of the faint and disheartened, gave his confidence to a matchless army, and received in return its unshaken faith. Revealing to his soldiers their invinci ble power, he more than any other leader of the war realized that when our army paused to recruit and reorganize, an opportunity was given to the enemy to do the same. If his battalions were shattered and weary, he did not forget that the enemy's were in as bad or a worse plight, and he followed and struck again." A heavy sea, caused by last night's storm, prevented sailing vessels to a large extent from participating in the naval display. Only Stealing a Ride.

Pratt Admitted a* Evidence. Oakland. Cal., Oct. 7.—ln the divorce ouit of George C. Pratt against Bertha Pratt, his wife, whom he accuses of illicit relations with L. L. Bromwell, president of the California Insurance company, Judge Ellsworth today ruled that the alleged confession of Mrs. Pratt should be admitted in evidence, and the confession was then read. It is very lengthy, consisting of several thousand words, and in it she professes to tell of her meeting with Bromwell. Her counsel claimed that the confession was written at the time of the trial of Pratt for Bhoot ing Bromwell some months ago; that it was designed to secure Pratt's acquittal on that charge, and that it was obtained from Mrs. Pratt by force, and therefore should not be admitted in evidence. The court overruled the counsel's objection, holding that while influence was un doubtedly used to secure the confession, such influence did not amount to duress. The affair has attracted considerable attention from the prominence of the parties involved. AH ItEW'S DEBI T In this County Wu Brief—He Must Go Back to China. San Francisco, Oct. 7. —Low Ah Bew, a Chinese merchant who arrived on the I Oceanic last month, was before the ! United States court of appeals this '■ morning. Bew's attorney argued that . ,as a merchant doing business in San i Francisco, his client had aright to land.

A Regent Selected to Act in Case She Should Die. Hawaiian Residents of San Francisco Say There is No Cause for Alarm. The Washington Anthoritles Waking Up. Associated Press Dispatches. San Francisco, Oct. 7.—The pub lished reports of the illness of Queen Liliuokalani, who is stated to be suffer ing from organic disease of the heart, are not wholly credited by the Hawaiian residents of this city, and by others who are aupposed to have full and au thentic advices from the islands. Conßul-General McKinley, in an inter view, aaid: "1 have received no infor mation regarding the queen's illnesa, and 1 believe her majesty to be well. Letters by the last steamer do not indi cate anything to disturb harmony at the islands. The queen has never given any indication of preference for the British, and the membera of her cabi l net are Americans, except one, and he is a native aon of an American." John D. Spreckcls, of the well-known shipping firm, said he had learned when visiting the islands some time ago, that Queen Liliuokalani had some disorder of the heart, and he waa informed that the queen had designated a person to be regent during the minority of Princess Kaiulani, heir to the throne. He de clined to give the name of the person designated as regent, but stated that the latter was well disposed to the American element on the islands. The Americas residents, he aaid, outnum bered those of any other foreign nation ality, and the natives are inclined to ward and desire annexation to Amer ica. Ex-Attorney-General Thurston under stood that the queen had been alilLted with a slight touch of heart disease for several years, but she had never been what ia* termed a sufferer from heart disease, and no fears of serioua results have been apprehended. The wife of a wealthy Honolulu mer chant, at pre Bent in this city, received a ! letter by the last steamer from one of Queen Liliuokalani's most intimate at tendants, in which it waa stated that the qeen felt deeply the death of the late King Kalakaua, and waa pretty well I weighed down under the burdens of her | new office, but there waa no suggestion iof serioua illneas intimated, as would have been the case had it existed at the time the letter was written. R. J. (Sreighton, local agent for the New Zealand government, said his ad vices contained nothing to the effect that the queen was ill. He stated that from what he knew of tbe affairs of Mr. Cleghorn, father of Princess Kainlani, he would gain nothing from conspiring in favor of English control of the islands. The balance of trade was decidedly with America, and by the withdrawal of the British naval establishment, the respon sibility of preserving peace and good order in the islands rests on this coun try. Washington, Oct. 7. —Reports of the seriousness illneaa of Queen Lilliuoka lani, of Hawaii, and of serious political complications almost sure to follow her death, have convinced the administra tion that it must be up and doing if the efforts of the English to secure suprem acy in those islands are to be circum vented. Just at the present time there is no vessel that can be sent to join the Peneacola at Honolulu. The Mohican and Thetis, if they are not too badly in need of repairs, will be available upon their return to San Francisco, about October 10th from Bering sea. What the department would really like to do would be to send Rear Admiral Brown with the San Francisco, and at the earliest possible moment his vessel can be spared from Chile it will be sent there. Admiral Brown's popularity with the people of the Sandwich islands, coupled with the display of two or three good shipa, would, it ia believed, be of the greatest possible assistance in bringing the United States to the front in the matter of control of the much coveted islands. Not a Case of Poisoning. Fresno, Oct. 7.—The coroner's inquest in the case of little Rudolph Spencer, was resumed today. The boy'a stomach had been examined and no trace of aup posed poiaon found.

Sonoma, Cal., Oct. 7.—Last evening Charles Crofoot, of Glen Ellen, was at tacked by a vicious stallion, and his life barely saved. The horse haa nearly killed two men in the laat few years. The Berlin Bourse Depressed. Berlin, Oct. 7.—The bourse is de pressed on rumors that Russia intends to prohibit the exportation of wheat after October 15. PARDONED AND BANISHED. An Arizona Woman Convict and Her Child. On the 24th of September, Governor Murphy, says the Prescott, A. T., Jour nal, performed a very graciouß and hu mane act in conditionally pardoning Manuella Frinbrez, a female convict at the territorial prison. The woman has been an inmnte of the prison for the past two years, and short ly after her incarceration ahe gave birth to a child, who has since grown into a bright and intelligent boy. If left in his present condition until the mother's release by expiration of term, the boy would be 12 years old, and would have been thoroughly schooled in crime, which he would have learned from association with convicts inside the prison walls and aa the mother would not under any circumstances part with the boy, the governor's solution of the difficulty was the only one. The woman has been sent, under es cort, by the superintendent of the ter ritoriarprison, to Tucson and Nogalea, and from there she will be led across the line by an officer, with the under standing that she never again enter Ari zona territory. She haa been a very serious source of trouble to the prison authorities in the past, as her mental faculties are of a very low order, and of common moral ity and decency she knows nothing.« Governor Murphy deserves the thanks of the people for his humane action in this case. . , [The woman was given $I<> in silver, led across tbe boundary line into the Mexican state of Sonora, and told to go on.J RARDON'S RESPONSE. He Explains the Details of His Potato Deal. Yesterday's Herald contained an item from the Californian of Bakersfield which stated a Mr. W. H. Rardon, of this city, had bought nine cars of pota toes at Bakersfield from aome China men and refused to pay for them. Mr. Rardon was seen yesterday by a Her ald reporter and made the following statement: "Several Chinamen at Bakersfield having potatoes that they could not dis pose of asked me to buy them, which I positively refused to do and when asked to come to Bakersfield and ship them on commission, went there on September 22d and shipped Beven cars to different parts of Arizona and New Mexico to be sold for my account, not being able to make direct sales, and upon receiving advice from consignees that potatoes were arriving in bad condition, I came to Los Angeles on September 29th, tell ing the Chinamen that if the market improved sufficiently to warrant future shipments, I would return, but upon my arrival here found that potatoes were not only arriving in bad condition but finding a market that would not pay freight, thereby compelling the railroad officials to sell the stock to best advan tage, the balance of the freight bills to be paid by me. •'I have not only paid all my bills at Bakersville, but bought and paid for one thousand sacka for the Chinanen at six cents each, and when Doin Castro, the drayman, who waa hired by the Chinamen, presented me with an order, duly signed, directing me to pay him his bill lor hauling potatoes, I promised to pay him as soon as the amount had been received from the proceeds of sales. "As to my leaving Los Angeles, which would please a few of my enemies, one of whom is indirectly responsible for this misunderstanding, who, being un able to continue in business here, haa resorted to blackmail and writing letters to newspapers for a living, I intend, most positively, to remain, and can prove that I have been at my office each and every day since my return from Bakersfield on September 29th. FIRE MATTERS. Some Figures Regarding the Fire Alarm System. The Fire Commissioners met this morning in regular weekly session, there being present Messrs. Kulnts, Brodrick and Stein. Mr. Summerland's motion in the council to cause connections to be made with Zanja No. 1 and Zanja Madre to furnish water for fire engines on various streets, was referred to the chief, ac also were various motions in the council for placing fire boxes at various points. A petition of the property owners to furnish a better protection from fire in the vicinity of Seventh and Mateo streets was referred to the chief. The chief reported on the plan of putting in boxeß at various points as moved for by councilmen, that they would cost $125 each, and the total cost of the work would be $(i,350. It would require seventy-three poles at $4 each, aixteen miles of wire at $20 per mile, ninety-six cells of gravity battery at $1.30 with fixtures for each. This would necessitate changing the system into ten circuits, which would be $1500 additional. A new ten circuit automatic register would coat $1S00; the street boxes would cost $1500, the entire $0350. Instead of this scheme the chief recommends the districting of the out lying precincts and the putting in of $25 boxea. In district No. 1 the pole fixtures would cost $122.14, and three miles of wire'and fixtures, $108,30 *, in struments and fixtures, $147; total for district No. 1, $377.44. District No. 2, 39 poles, $150, and fix tures amounting in all to $402.22; 0 1 .. miles of wire and fixtures, $229.30; in struments and fixtures, $147 ; total for district No. 2, $838.52. District No. 3, 14 poles, $50, and fix tures amounting in all to $172.75; 1 3 4 ' miles of wire, $35, and fixtures, $03.05; instruments, $147 ; total, $382.80. District No. 4, 83 polea, $332; fixtures, $791.30; 10 miles of wire, $200; fixturea, $351.80; instrumenta, $174.25; total $1317.35. The cost of poles and wire is included in the totals of the fixtures. The total cost of this system would be $3111.50. Chief Moore and Commissioner Kuhrts were appointed a committee to examine into the matter and report to the council. LIBRARY TRUSTEES. The Proceedings at the Meeting Held Yesterday. The regular monthly meeting of the board of directors of the Los Angeles public library was held yesterday, there being present Directors Davies, Sever ance and President Dobinson.

A number of applications for position of attendant were read and referred to the committee on attendants. The board then adjourned. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.' FLEETING BEAUDENNET. He Abandons His Bonne Amie in New Orleans. Le Vicomte de Santa Maria, in the last number of LeProgres.has an article on Dr. Beaudennet, the physician of the French Society of Benevolence, whose elopement on the 14th of September with a Basque girl was announced in the Herald at the time. The following are extracts translated from the account: Beaudennet never was a doctor, but simply a health officer, never having passed hia examinations. He arrived in LosAngelea with his brother in 1889. . . ... He was elected doctor of the French Society of Benevolence in March, 1891. As coon sb he was at the head of the medical service of the French hos pital be became intoxicated with suc cess. . . . Some time after he became acquainted with a young Basque girl, Madamoiselle Marie Cerramu, who could not resist the charms of thia medical Don Juan, and in apite of her 26 years, ahe was frail enough to fall into hia enarea. Finding herself in a condition more than interesting, she thought it best to hide her shame by flight with her seducer. The poor girl had with her when ahe left almoat $900, and when she arrived in New Orleans on the 18th of September, her com panion found lneane to take thia and abandon her on the street. On the 23d of September he sailed from New York for Liverpool, and ia now probably in Paris. A NEW COURT. Agent Rust Wants an Indian Tri bunal. The trouble between the two factions of the Mission Indians still continues, and Agent Rust takes a lively intereßt in the affair, says the Colton News. The latest squabble ia over a cow, which is claimed by an Indian of each faction. One Indian took the cow from the other, and the agent promptly arrested him and placed him in the cooler. Agent Rust is desirous of organizing a court of Indian police to try the alleged culprit, and he will review the findings of the court. The officers here say there is no law which warrants the detention of the prisoner, whom the agent will not turn over to the courts of the county, and it it is thought that a writ of habeas cor pus will be issued and the Indian re leased. An Indian court with Agent Rust as judge, jury and executioner would cer tainly be a novel if not a pleasant sight. A DEFECTIVE FLUE. An Exciting Time Last Night in the Wilson Block. The fire alarm turned in at 9 :10 last evening caused quite an excitement. Dense volumes of smoke were seen com ing from the Wilson block on the corner of Spring and First streets. Many of the lodgers became unduly alarmed and hastened pell mell down the stairs. Some carried their children in their arms and others some of their belong ings. Officer Duggan, Patrolman Kear ney and a Herald reporter rushed up the stairs and climbed on the top of the building, where it was found that a de fective flue was the cause of all the trouble. The sparks Hew out onto the roof, which was tin and in consequence did not catch fire. MARRIAGE LICENSES. People Who Yesterday Secured Per missions to Wed. The county clerk yesterday issued marriage licenses to the following per sons : George A. Greely, a native of Maine, aged .'l7, and Cora E.

This reliable financial institution has declared its quarterly dividend on its capital stock, at the rate of 15 per cent per annum. The flourishing condition of thia dean of all our city banks is a gratifying indication of the healthful condition of the business of Lob An geles. It shows that business is improv ing apace, when a conservative financial institution like the Farmers and Mer chants Bank finds itself iv position to materially increase the rate of its quar terly dividend. This fact is also a tribute to the fitneßa of Mr. H. W. Hillman to take his brother's place in a bank which stands at the very front of the great banking institutions of this Btate.
