A Report That Representatives of a New Road Are Here. A rumor was current in railroad cir cles yesterday to tbe effect that the Denver, Rio Grande and Western rail road company already had representa tives in Southern California, and that they were even negotiating for certain properties which would be of strategic importance iv case the main line was extended here. Among the properties mentioned were the San Gabriel Valley Rapid Transit road and the Mr. I. H. Polk's Colton, San Bernardino and Riv erside motor road. Both are valueless of course as links in a transcontinental road as they now exist, but their rights THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 18 1891. of way and franchises would be of great value to such a road. Tte Colton motor line would enable the new road to at once tap three freight centers, and would be in a direct line from the Morongo pass. Mr. Polk was seen by a Hkrald reporter for a moment yester day, and asked if there was any basis for the report. "Who told you?" was tlie gentle man's quick query. "Never mind who told me; if it is not so, why, deny it; if it is so, it is a very interesting piece of news." "I've nothing to say about it at all, and I would much rather you would say nothing about it. It does' not seem to me that a railroad's business matters ought to be published abroad." "Will you deny it then? If you do, that will end the matter," answered the reporter. "I told you 1 have nothing to say about the matter," and the usually af fable receiver turned short and jumped on a car and disappeared. The story therefore is given for what it is worth. < WILL SOMETHING DROP? AN OMINOUS QUIET AROUND THE COURT HOUSE. Interesting Developments Expected in a Few Days—The Sheriff Will Obey the Order of the Judge—The Supervisors Non Committal. Humor has it that there will be some thing oi interest in a few days in con nection with the order of Judge Wade requiring Sheriff Gibson to furnish his court room on the fourth Hoor of the court house building. Ever since the order was made public the board of supervisors haa maintained an ominous silence, and individual members of that auguat body when sought out by a Hkrald reporter in search for information regarding the po sition of the board in the matter, re plied to all questions : "The board has no knowledge of the order." While the board has had no official I knowledge concerning the order, every member is fully informed as to its pur port, and it is said that the position taken by Judge Wade has been very freely discussed. From good authority it is learned that something will drop in a few days, and a great amount of spec ulation is being indulged in as to what the sheriff, tho Los Angeles Furniture company and the board of supervisors will do. Judge Wade is quietly awaiting the furnishing of his new quarters, and will welcome the day the room is ready for occupancy. Sheriff Gibson will follow out his order to the letter. He has nothing to do but obey instructions, and as a recent decision of the supreme court of thia state, in a parallel case in San Francisco, makes Judge Wade's position tenable, there are a number of people who have expreesed the opinion that there is nothing for the board oi supervisors to do but to look on. The plana for furnishing the room, which were prepared by Architect Brown, of this city, and presented to the supervisors some time ago for approval, were hauled out by the sheriff yesterday and examined, but no order has yet been given for the furniture. MOURNING FOR HER MOTHER. How Cleopatra Rebuffed a Young Journalist. He |waß a geutle-EOtiled journalist, a member of a contemyorary'a staff, and he had seen Cleopatra, and wanted to interview her. So •he went to Miss Fanny Davenport's hotel on Monday and sent up his card. If he had been a coarse, brutal, pushing, get-what-he- went-gunning-t'or reporter, he would have followed close on the heels of the bell boy, or he would have sought an in troduction through the lady's manager. But lie waited for the bell boy to return with a summons to the presence. The bell boy came back bearing the card and a grin. On the back of the piece of pasteboard were in fashionable hiero glyphics, the words: "I cannot be interviewed. lam in mourning for my mother. "Fa STH v Da v i: tfPO BT," MARRIAGE LICENSES.

The board of aupervisors yesterday decided to allow Contractor Brady sixty days' further time to place tbe electric clock system in order, and ii the clocks do not work satisfactorily at the expira tion of that time, Mr. Brady will be required to furnish a system of clocks that will keep time. The resolution passed by the board of supervisors had the effect of bringing Mr. Henzel, to whom Mr. Brady sublet the clock contract, post haste from San Francisco. Both he and Mr. Brady were at the court house yesterday, and with several expert electricians engaged by the supervisors, made an inspection of the system. Mr. Henzel and his representatives contend that the clocks will go all right. Everybody who is employed in the court house hopes so, but grave doubts are entertained as to the time-keeping qualities of the system as it now stands. Tbe supervisors agreed to give the contractor one more chance, alter hear ing the report of the local experts. What that report contained is known only to the gentlemen who compose the board, and they declined to make it public. It is the general opinion, how ever, that the report was anything but favorable to ttie system. The clocks will start up today, provided there are no cross-currents, etc., to tangle up the machine. To cure constipation, siok headache and dys pepsia Simmons Liver Regulator has no equal. LIKE the youngster in "Heleu's Babies," we "like to see the wheels wound.''

Coroner Weldon went to Santa Mon ica yesterday to hold an inquest on the body of a man which was found in the water yesterday afternoon at about 2 o'clock. The body was that of a young man respectably but not elegantly dressed. There waa $3.40 in one pocket and in auother come papers which were taken charge of by the CQio&er. A peculiar feature of the affair wal that the face of the cadaver was badly contused, and blood was llowing from the nostrils and ears. This was ex plained by some on tbe theory that the body had been bruised against the piles of tbe wharf by the waves, but against this theory waa the fact that the break ers were very Bmall and broke beyond the end of the pier. It was expected that the coroner would be back last evening with parti culars, but he staid at Santa Monica all night. DREADFUL SKIX DISEASE .tilllets a Well-known Merchant—ltch ing and Burning Terrible—Doctors and All Remedies Fail. Tries Cuticura—Relieved by the First Application and Entirely Cured ln Five Weeks. Ai'uut eighteen months ago a small speck ap peared on my ankle; it resembled a fish scale; it became larger, and 11 onsulted a physician, who pronounced It psoriasis or monicd dis ease, because it resembled money. I applied an ointment, but it spreail until at last it cov ered almost my entire body. My suffering was something terrible burning and itching sensa tion continually, until it hciame. almost unen durable. I suffered tortures, especially at night, and for two months I was compelled to sleep with glov s on. I became desperate. I would have given anything to be relieved of the itching sensation. I tried a number of remedies without any relief. I was requested to try Cr rteL in; this I did, aod to my great surprise. I was relieved after the fir-t applica tion. I used the CutieoßA, Cvticcka soap and Cuticura Resolvent according to direc tions for about four or live weeks, when I was entirely cured. But whut a relief it was to me after the suffering I went through.

It brings tlie power oi giving things that makes mercantile life enjoyable. Those who iiave not succeeded may well envy the favorite of fortune. It is the successful man that leads and wields the mercantile power of the community. It is the successful man to whom the mer cantile world appeals to take hold of their lines and push them on with the bal ance of his many successes. It ia the successful man with whom the multitude do their trading, because they know he possesses the very latest fabrics, and the correct styles. His successes absorb the goods purchaaed each season, and leave no old and unclaimed stock to be shoved off upon a credulous public at the open ing of a new season. It ia the successful merchant who greets his patrons as they enter the portals of hia house with cordial welcome and friendly mien, that makes purchaaing a pleasure. It is the auceeasful man that doea not envy his leaa for tunate neighbor, and who returns the scowl with a amile and well wishes for hia better success. The aucceaaful man poaaessea brains, executive ability and tact, and in the application of these three createa hia ancceaa. The other man marvels what the public can ace to admire in hia style or ability, and ploda along each day wondering why people pasa him by and enter the atore of his succeasful neigh bor. THE PEOPLE'S STORE IS A SUCCESS. It combines all the elements and attributes of succcbb. Succeasful, because it carries but the newest, the lateat and the beat of merchandise ; successful, because it sella these goods at less than they can be purchased within the mercantile walla of Loa Angeleß ; succeas ful, because ita stock ia varied and attractive, and every day the huge piles of merchandise which leave the atore by freight, expreaa or by the courtesy of ita patrons, are filled with newer and choicer materials, almost warm from their looms. These simple worda have effected all thia—"The selling of the beet mer chandise for the least possible money." DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT. We are showing you today through our show windowa and display on our counters some of the handsomest creationa of late fall effects to be found in the fineat mercantile emporiums of this continent. We are bettering our goods aud lowering our prices. We have a line of pattern Buits which we are closing out today at prices ranging from $0 to $15 a suit; you will iind theae most exquieite designs, and the moat stylish goods imported in Lob Angelea ; Scotch effects, rough goods, home spuns, camel's bair, are the noveltiea of the aeason; a good many people are allowing old combination auits two yeara old, that are not at all seasonable, and on the strength of their past reputation for dress goods houses are trying to make you believe they are the lateat noveltiea. We have a line of 50 inch all wool iron chain sergea, which we are offering at a very exceptional price, $1 per yard; the width and weight will ineure a purchase if you're looking for anything in the dreßS goods line. Solid colored tricot cloths, as pretty a fabric of all wool material as you would wish to see; we will sell them today at :tsc a yard ; it is the beat quality that ia made in thia kind of goods, and at a reasonable profit they should be sold at tiOc. We call your attention to our stock of black drees goods; we have gome ex quisite novelties at $1 a yard; upon comparison, we think that you w ill find them as good as anything that you will see in ttiis market at $1.50. OUR BOYS' CLOTHING DEPARTMENT. This department, like every other, ia struggling for supremacy, bettering our goods. We want mothers to know that we are selling aa nice a-line of boya' cloth ing a 9 is to be found in Loa Angelea. We guarantee the materials, guarantee the wear, and guarantee every representation that we make. We arc building up a reputation upon the beat merchandise for the leaat money in thia town, making the People'a Store a household word with every mother ;"when she has wants iv boys' clothing she will come to us. We have a lino of light-weight suits, in various colors, wool effects, sizes 4 to 13, that we will sell today at $1.75; there ia nothing to equal it in this or any other market at. the price. At $2.50 we think we can give you the beat boys' suits that the money can purchase. At $3.50 we can give you a very fine boys' wool suit that will more than please you; then we go at even stages of a rise of 50c to $1 per suit up to $10; the claim for our hoys' clothing ia that it is aa good aa any merchandise manufactured, and it ia much cheaper than you can buy in clothing houaes. OUR DRUG DEPARTMENT. We have a full stock of nearly everything known in the patent medicine line, and we are selling these at People's Store prices. A full line of Lauter'e fine colognes, all odors. All Of Colgate'a gooda, Pinaud'e, Lubin's, Atkinaon's beat odors, and, in fact, those of every well-known mantifacturer of perfumeriee in the United Statea ; the quantity of druggist aundtiea, tooth brushes, hair brushes, combs, etc., that we sell shows that our pricea are right. All druga and patent medicines that we carry are much below the regular drug atore prices. LADIES' UNDERWEAR DEPARTMENT. This department haa been most eucceaaful thia eeaaon. We have been show ing the beat values in ladies' underwear that is possible to conceive of. ln low priced goods our values have been self-apparent. In wool goods, our 05c. 75c and 85c ladiea' jeraey ribbed vesta have been pro nounced the cheapeat gooda ever displayed in any market. We have some ladies' wool combination auits, in natural and white, at $2.50 a suit, which we consider good value at one-half again; we can never duplicate them ourselvea. • In corsets we have received some new stock displayed upon our forms which we think will please you. DRAPERY DEPARTMENT. Our line of bed comforta thia aeaßon is by far the beat that haa ever come into this house. We are selling a comfort today at $2 that we could no»» in past sea sons cffer you even at $3, and we raise in price at even stages until we come to $10. In no previous season have we carried a comforter over $4, but the growing de mands of our trade for better goods has induced ua to place a line of down com forts aa high aa $10. Our line of blanket" is very choice, and our price, like everything else we carry, marked up a percentage of profit, will prove to be the best value for the money purchasable. We are showing a nice'line of furniture fringes and all the paraphernalia for draperies. New scrims just at hand, and our lace curtains certainly will fill all your re ouirementß if you have any needs in thia line. SHOE DEPARTMENT. Good, honest footwear at the loweat poaßible price ia the keynote of our sue - cess. If we can sell you a shoe at $0 aa good aa the shoe atore man will sell you for $7, where are you going to buy your shoes? There is no friendship in business; we have discovered that long ago. Our friends go wherever they can buy gooda the cheapest. A line of Curtis & Wheeler'a fine ahoea at varioua prices; lesa than the exclu sive agent asks for the same shoe. We do not advertise to be the excluaive agent of Curt : .B & Wheeler's fine shoes, but we do advertise to be exclusive gellera of Curtis ci Wheeler'e fine shoes at People'a Store prices ; and furthermore, we ad vertise the fact that there iB nobody in it with ua in value for price. It is plain aa the nose on a man's face. We have illustrated it time and time again, and it ia one oi the reasons of our ever constant aucceea. We carry under one roof 25 different departments. Our expense for doing business iB lese than it would be if we had 25 different stores, each one compris ing one line. We occupy a better position in the purchasing markat because we buy in our two stores in"the neighborhood of $1,000,010 worth of gooda a, year. There is not a retail concern in Itoe Angelea that cornea within one-half of it. Quantity makes the price. We have other makes of ladies' shoes equally aa good, which we stand back of for wear, and guarantee the atyle and fit; we warrant them to wear, and if they do not, we make them good. MEN'S SHOES. In Hanan & Son'a men's fine Bhoee, we offer you the beBtproduction of a shoe; there ia no better made; all over the United States they have been getting from $5.60 upwarde for a shoe that we are Belling in Los Angelea at $5. All over the United Statea they are getting from $7 to $9 for the shoe that we are selling in Loa Angeles for $0. It is honest merchandise at low prices that make our success. In men's shoes, from $2.60 in the fine French calf shoe, up to $4.95, we sell you the celebrated make of Lilly, Brackett & Co. ; for style, fit and durability, honesty in workmanship and material, there ia no man's ahoe put upon the mar ket that can excel it. This comprises our line of men's shoes. We have some cheaper shoes from $1.50 upwards, which, considering the price and material, are reasonable, but of course would not give the wear nor the satisfaction that these better shoes will. We can Bell gentlemen'e shoes for the present cheaper than we ever will be able to do so again because we are overcrowded with the double atock —our own and what was sent to ua by our San Francisco store, who gave up men's shoes. fl.
