They Formed a Permanent Organiza tion Yesterday. On Monday afternoon there was held at the residence of Mr. O, Vogel, 1223 West Second street, a regular session of the newly organized Bohemian club, which waa christened last week under the name "Goulash club." Mr. Dion Romandy, the chief cook, officiated at the pot and compounded the national Hungarian dish in his usual manner. Judge Gardiner was elected "chairman and first dishwasher," pro tern, and presided over the club in trne Bohemian style. After,the liberal indulgence of the membera in the soul-stirring "gou lash," the musical section were ordered to fulfill their duties by the portly chairman, which order waa obeyed moat satisfactorily in tbe rendition of Mozart's Twelfth quartette in G minor, including the allegro vivace, menuetto, andante and finale by the string quar tette, comprised of the following named artiste: First violin, Mr. Ford; second violin, Mr. Angelotti; viola, Mr. Ko mandy: 'cello, Mr. Meyer. Some minutes were then passed in discusaing the buainess of the club, which reaulted in a permanent organi zation being perfected under rules and regulations to be enforced at the next session, which ia to take place in their own quarters, which are to be fitted up in consonance with the character of the Goulash Eaters. After the business talk came the vocal part of the pro gramme, which was rendered by the Paprika quartette, namely: Messrs. Vogel, second tenor; Foran, first tenor; Angelotti, first bass; Uawthorne, sec ond basß. The afternoon session was closed by vocal solos by Messrs. Hawthorne and Foran, and a zither solo by Mr. Vogel; and with three rousing cbeers for the host who had so generously entertained them, the Goulash club adjourned to meet again in their own home at an early day. THE BANK'S ASSESSMENT. The City Takes an Appeal in Its Case. A transcript on appeal waa filed yes terday by C. McFarland, attorney for appellants, with Clerk Gulp of the state superior court in the case of the Farm ers' and Merchants' bank vs. the coun cil of the city sitting as a board of equal ization. The bank made application originally in the superior court for the granting of a writ of review to be di rected to the council of this city, to review an order of said council adding to the assessment of plaintiff's solvent credits 1268,000. On the sth day of August of this year, council met as a board of equalization to examine the as sessment roll, and ordered that a notice be mailed to the bank directing it to ap pear and show cause why its assessment on solvent credits Bhould not be in creased from $2774 to $275,000. On August 12th the bank's representatives did ap pear before council and claimed that the only sum of money on hand assess able under the state law was $21,405.35. Council held, however, that the bank had returned a false and incomplete list of its taxable property, and on motion of Mr. Tufts the assessor was directed to add to the assessment against the bank for solvent credits the sum of $268,000. The cause came on regularly to be heard in open court November 12th, and Judge W. P. Wade rendered a judg ment against the council. From this judgment the present appeal has been filed. NOTHING IN IT. A Fake Railroad Story in the Times. The Times runs "steamboats" in its railroad department of late very exten sively. Yesterday morning it stated that the Santa Fe company had pur chased the Santa Monica wharf and Terminal railroad company's interest in a proposed line from Inglewood to Santa Monica; this proposed line was, some months ago, announced exclusively in the Herald—which by the way, has been the case with all railroad news of note. The remarkable statement was made that the con sideration "was $50,000 of which $2500 was to be paid in cash, the remaining $47,500 to he pakl at the option of the purchaser!! '." On the very best of authority the statement can he made that there is not a word of truth in the Times'a story. As was stated in the Herald months ago, it is surmised and it is probable that eventually, if the talked-of "line is built, it will be absoroed by the Santa Fe. But no deal has been made. W'lren it is accomplished, if ever, the Herald will state the fact. Dill Again Arrested. Olkarithld, Pa., Dec. «.—W. H. Dill, ex-president of the defunct First Na tional bank, waa arrested again toni?ht, charged with converting $25,000 of the bank'a funds to hia own use, on inform ation given by John McGrath, cashier of the Houtsdale bank. Dropped Dead. Canajohaew, N. V., Dec. B.—M. T. Steams, ex-governor of Florida.dropped dead this evening of heart failure, at the residence of hia wife's mother, at Palatine bridge. Governor Steams was born in Lovell, Maine, fifty-two years agOj . Not Responsible. As regards food adulteration, the grocer is in no wise res ponsible for the acts of the manufacturer. If people want goods at cheap figures they must expect quality to correspond. Dr. Price's De licious Flavoring Extracts, Vanilla, Lemon, etc., come a few cents higher than other extracts in the market, but they contain no poisonous or hurtful matter as an adulter ant; their quality is the high est, their flavor the finest and their perfect purity es tablished. -* CHRISTMAS IS COMING. $- DON'T "pORGET THE AY & f ISHER MUSIC CO.

The Gila Bend Reservoir and irrigation company of Arizona have two hundred and fifty thousand acres of government land under their canal system subject to entry uuder Ihe home stead ordesert land laws which can be secured at ?13.7. r > per acre, including a perpetual water right of one inch to three acres. These lands are adapted to the rMsing of citrus fruits as well as all other products common to a semi-tropic climate. The special committee of the Unfted States Senate, report Xo. 928, part 1, Ma> 5, 1890. page 00, after seeing Southern California and all the arid and irrigabl- regions, says of the Gila valley lands: "wlthtn our bordek thf.ittc can not be found a soil so uniformly fertile and so capable of varied production under irrigation as that of thk valleys of the gila, salt and Santa Cruz rivers in Southern and Central Arizona, analysis of this soil shows its fertile qualities to be superior to that of tiie nils earth." Over four thousand acres of these Gila valley lauds have just been taken up by a colony of Riverside fruit growers, which is sufficient evidence of its superiority.

A Broad Assertion! a store: NEVER Without a Customer! This ii a broad assertion frr us to mate, but it is absolutely true. Blncc opening our new store at 213 South Spring street, under tbe Hol lenbeck hotel, there Ins not been a minute without us having a customer in the store, from opening until the electric lights go out and leave the store in darkness, <jo past our store at any time, dny or night, week day or Sunday, and you will see a large crowd around our show window, rjading the prices marked upon the goods, aad asking each other how it is possible icr us to sell goods so cheaply.

Our stock embraces a line of Diamonds, Watches, Jewelry, Silver ware, Novelties, Cutlery, Al bums, I'lush Goods, And a thousand and oue articles suitable for holiday gilts. How is it you can sell your goods so cheap.' Is what c very one asks. We will tell you. Two years ago we traded for the entire stock of Fred Linde, then one of the leading jewelers of this city. We got these goods so that we can sell them atsoc on the dollar. Determining to go in business again in Los Angeles, which offers a good field for our business, we went east, where we have been with a liberal supply of cash, buying up bankrupt stocks, pawnbrokers' goods, job lots, and have secured an immense stock, all bought at from 20 to 50 cents on the dollar. We have leased this store and we are here to stay; havo secured the services or a shrewd and experienced buyer to watch the New York markets and secure us ba"gains. We bay no regular gooos, but pick up goods as we can. but all bought at lower than manufacturers' prices. We are thereby enabled to oiler you bargains tn everything we handle. Come to our store and inspect our prices, and you will be convinced that we are offering un heard of bargains. We will positively offer watches Rt one-half th<> usual prices.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1891. TOY DEPARTMENT. It is not generally known tbat we do a jobbing business as well as a retail business throughout our house. But the terms on which we sell goods are spot c ish on delivery. There have been a good many people looking for a place where they could buy toys wholesale. We are in a position to sell you these goods at the very lowest figures for cash. Every day we sell hundreds of dollars' worth in this lice to merchants in the country. Those who are desirous of buying a stock of toys for holidays should come in at once, aa later in the season our atock will be oroken, and our time so absorbed that we cannot give you the proper attention and assortment. In our basement salesroom you will find everything in the toy wagon and doll carriage line, games, puzzles, dolls, dishes, toy furniture of all kinds. You will find our stock this season unusually choice, better quality of toys and lower priceß. This is the policy we pursue throughout our house.

A full stock of juveniles, all sorts of books for boys ond girls, children and babies. Our book department ia a aide isaue with ua; we only open it'during the holiday month, and it is more of an ad vertisement to attract people to our stores than for the sake of selling the mer chandise. Our jewelry department contains only solid gold, gold-plated and fire gilt gooda. It is customary to sell these gooda anywhere Irom 500 to 1000 per cent profit. We sell them to you at the same ratio that we do all other goods in oar Btore.

In drese goods after the first of the year we propose to make a very startling change.
