San Jose and Los Angeles to Play Today. The Last Two Games of the Season. Ball Players Whom Glenalvin Ex pects to Play. An Offer Wired to Stafford—O'Rourke Not Vet Signed— A Spicy Letter from Glenalvin—Peter .Jack son Heard From. There is considerable anxiety among the running horsemen about spring meetings. The associations in Califor nia are a little backward this year in announcing their programmes. It is high time that the Blood Horse associa tion of San Francisco began to show their hand. The prospect for a spring meeting in this city is not very encour aging. There is some talk of organizing a jockey club to give a spring meeting. If this is done a sensational meeting could be gotten up, provided good money is hung up. The number of trotting and running horse men that contemplate going east this year is simply astonishing. This means that the California public will have to con tent i hemselves with seeing the "skates" constantly at the fall meetings. How would Dooley on first, Glenal vin ou second and O'Rouke on third suit the Los Angeles fans ? Dooley has not signed this year and could doubtless be secured. He is very popular down this way and Mr. Vanberbeck would make a great coup by securing Dooley. The goodlooking Charles played for the really first professional baseball team ever organized in this city. Dooley is very partial to Los Angeles and would rather like to be a "Citrus Belter." Glenalvin, the Los Angeles caDtain, is very witty. Here is an extract from one of his letters to Mr. Vanderbeck: "As I wrote you before, I have a phenon in view, and I may give him a shake at my own figure. VVhat a draw ing card he" will be, Van. If you were to see him you would fall dead." He's a lulu. A regular 'T Willy.' They say he can put them over the plate with 'whiskers' on their chins. "Melt West sent me his terms at |250 a month —a long contract (eleven years I believe)—two hundred and fifty bonus for his autograph, and fees for his fam ily to Europe and return. Pretty cheap man, eh Van? Here's a young man who evidently should take the 'gold' treatment, for he has an ample appetite for tbat which lures. Oh, he will come down and down; low at that. Thiß fellow is no mean shakes of a player, though; only he don't know how far the limits of tbe great twelve club league extends, for he evidently imagines Los Angeles in it. Well, Van, I am going slow and sure." Danny Minnehan and Milt West, first basemen; McMahon, James Stafford and Hart, pitchers, and Trafiley are the names of all ball players, one or more of whom are liable to be signed for the Los Angeles team. West is holding out for too much money, so the Los Ange les first baseman may prove to be Min nehan. He is a Western league player. Mr. Vanderbeck yesterday wired an offer to Stafford and may land this clever pitcher for Los Angeles. He was with Worcester last season. Montgom ery P. Nevins is the mame of a coming young twirler who may be on the pay roll of the Los Angeles club. Glenalvin and O'Rouke could not agree on terms at last accouuts, but a deal may yet be fixed up. If so, Los Angeles will have a star third base man. There are two Harts who are £rofessional pitchers, but the one with incoln and Sioux City last season is probably the better pitcher than the Hart who was with Duluth, although the latter is much the better bitter. It is not known here which Hart that Glenalvin is after. The Los Angeles uniform will be white with dark pants and trimmings. Spaulding & Co. of Chicago are making the uniforms, and they contract to land them in Los Angeles by the 10th of next month. THE LAST GAMES. San Jose and Los Angeles to Wind Up the Season. The Los Angeles baseball public will have the last chance to see professional ball playing thiß afternoon until the Cal ifornia league season opens up on March 26th. There are two games scheduled to be played this afternoon between Los Angeles and San Jose, and the games will be played unless it rains during the afternoon. The flrßt game will be called at 10 o'clock sharp at the First-street grounds. The San Jose and Los Angeles clubs have played a brilliant series, and the public should show its appreciation by turning out in goodly numbers. The teams will be made up as follows: LOS ANGELES.

Be Will Not Fight In New Orleans or Enter New Contracts. St. Louis, Feb. 6.—Peter Jackson, the colored pugilist, was seen this morning regarding the agreement signed by Corbett to fight the winner of the Slavin-Jackson contest at New Orleans for a purse of $15,000. "I have said Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. Powder ABSOLUTELY PORE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 7, 1892 before I will not fight in New Orleans," said Jackson, "not that I don't think I could get fair play, but because of tbe feeling there against my race. As to signing this agreement I will say I shall sign nothing. I will finish the tight I have on hand first, and then look after others. If I win this fight with Slavin, then I will be glad to meet Corbett and give him the first chance, if he wants it, but before this fight is over, I will not do anything. ]S'uln of Sporting News. Memphis is to have a kite-shaped track. An.Oakland paper says that Lou Har die will be a Colonel. Charles E. Gale has a Los Angeles let ter in a recent number the Wheel. There is a prediction that Fanning and Hoffman will be the San Francisco pitchers. Peter Maher has gone to New Orleans to train for his coming fight with Fitz simmons. The members of the Los Angeles league team are to report in this city on March 10th. A Philadelphia paper says: Austin Gibbons is no boxer, he is a fighter all the way through. San Diego and Los Angeles will in all probability try conclusions at football on Washington's birthday. Cycling is growing in popularity in Los Angeles. There will be great activ ity in wheeling circles before this year is out. Simmermar, the crack American bi cyclist, sails for England this week, where he will take part in the big race meeting. Austin Gibbens wants to fight Dick Burgo for the lightweight championship of the world, £500 a side, and the largest purse offered. In reply to a cablegram Osmond says he has not decided whether he will visit America this season. So if Windle won't go to England America will still have two champions. W. F. Murphy of the New York Ath letic club is at present in Springfield. He is having a light racing ordinary built, which he proposes taking abroad with him in case he should go thiß spring. So Tommy Warren was beaten again. After all it doesn't pay to be a fakir in the long run. Warren has won many a fight by bribing the other fellow to "lie down. When it came to fighting "on the level" Warren was in nine cases out of ten found wanting. "Will Boston win the pennant next season ?" was the question put to Mike Kelly recently. "Will they—will they win the pennant? Well, I "rather think they will," was Kelly's musical answer. P. S. —And if Ring Kel goes to New York, please erase Boston and insert "The Giants." Will it go? You bet it do!—[Times Star. CANADIAN CROOKEDNESS. The Toronto Glob* Opens a Lot of Old Sores. Toronto, Ont., Feb. 6.—The Globe publishes today serious charges against Adolphe Caron, postmaster-general, and Tarte, who made the charges that re sulted in Sir Hector Langevin's down fall, and will call for a reopening of the inquiry of the last session. It will publish fac similes of documents and checks which it claims will prove that Sir Adolphe drew upon the funds in McGreevy's hands for the election of 1887, and that his drafts were for political purposes. It alleges that Tarte also received some of the moneys; also that boodling has been carried on in Quebec district, directly under the personal euperintendence of ministers of the crown, and on regular business principles. Several members of parlia ment are alleged to be implicated. A CLAIM AGAINST CHILE. Fireman Shields' Comrade Demands •40,000 Indemnity. San Francisco, Feb. 6. —Another claim for damages has been filed against Chile, this time by Andrew McKinstry, a member of the crew of the American Bteamer Keweenaw. McKinstry was with Patrick Shields, fireman of the Keweenaw, when the latter was arrested and so terribly maltreated by the Val- Earaiso police. He also was severely eaten by the police and then impris oned, but waß afterwards released on demand of Minister Egan and Consul McCreary. His claim, which is for $40,000, has been sent on to Washing ton by attorney F. A. Ord, who is also Shields' attorney. Shields is still in the marine hospital here, and the doc tors believe his health will never be fully restored. WAR ON WAN ABUKIR. Three Letter Carriers Suspended for Is suing; a Belligerent Circular. Philadelphia, F"eb. 6. —Three letter carriers, Francis P. Braceland, Frank Koduet and James O'Sullivan, were sus pended today by Postmaster Field for the issuance of a circular letter calling a meeting of the Philadelphia carriers tomorrow for the purpose of protesting against what they term "the depart mental construction of the letter-car riers' eight-hour law," which, they state, deprives carriers mi all the advan tages they heretofore enjoyed. As the paper was couched in decidedly warlike and defiant terms, it was impossible for the postmaster to overlook it. Suit For Damages. Stockton, I'eb. 6. —Margaret Martin, administratrix of the estate of James Murray, has brought suit against the Southern Pacific Railroad company for $25,000 damages for injuries caused to Murray from which he died. Murray was employed by tbe railroad, and on June 28,1890, while he was repairing a trestle in Los Angeles county, a train came along.

Chicago, Feb. 6.—Judge Tuley of the circuit court today handed down an opinion sustaining the will of the late millionaire John Creerar, of this city, in leaving a fund for establishing a great library here, etc. The validity of the will was attacked by certain cousins of the deceased, on grounds similar to those on which the bequest of the late Samuel J. Tilden of New York was overthrown. The Creerar will made individual religious and charitable bequests to the amount of $800,000, and gave the resi due of his estate, amounting to over $3, --000,000 into tbe hands of Col. Hunting ton W. Jackson and Mr. Norman Will iams to found the Creerar library. It was contended by the complainants that the residuary clause was void because obnoxious to the law of perpetuities, and that the other bequests were not of a public nature. In substance, the court holds that there could be no more deserving char ity than the bequest for the education of the people; that it was clearly the intention of the testator that his residu ary estate should become at his death a gift to charity. If the residuary clause was good, it made no difference to the complainants whether the challenged special legacies were void or not, as the lapsed legacies of personalty fell into the residuum, and the complainants had no standing in court. The judge commented on the diffi culty under the New York law of sus taining wills making bequests to charity, and of the praciice in this state of con struing the law literally, in favor of the wishes of charitable testators, as ac counting for tbe different conclusions reached in the Tilden and Creerar cases. AN OREGON FORGER. Wholesale Falsifying of Notes hy a Port land Manufacturer. Portland, Ore., Feb. 6.—lt is reported here that a warrant has been issued for tbe arrest of E. G. Durand, president of the Durand Organ and Piano company, on the charge of forgery. Durand left town last Friday, and his whereabouts is unknown. Durand's company, had a capital stock of $200,000, and besides selling musical instruments, he sold stock in the company, taking promissory notes from the purchasers, promising not to dispose of them, and to let the dividends of the company pay for them. Durand either sold these notes or used them as collateral to obtain money on. Durand invested heavily in real estate and lost. It is charged he forged a num ber of notes. These, with genuine notes, he gave in payment for real es tate. It is thought he obtained $200,000 on notes of this kind. His business has been attached and also the notes in bis possession. A BEHIKK&BLE DECISION. Receivers of Railroads Not Responsible for Damages in Texas. Galveston, Tex., Feb. 6. —The state supreme court rendered a most remark able decision in the case of Turner vs. the receiver of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas road. John Turner's mother sued for damages for the death of her son, who was killed on tbat road. The case came before the Williamson county court of appeals, and tbe judges decided that inasmuch as the law mentions specifically as liable owners, proprietors, etc., and omits re ceivers, the latter cannot be held re sponsible for injuries inflicted or be com pelled to pay damages. II All WON!) PARDONED. The Cleveland-Street Notable Liberated by Governor Ferry. Seattle, Wash., Feb. 6.—Charles D. Hammond of Cleveland street, London, notoriety, who has been in jail here on a charge of grand larceny, for over a year, was pardoned today by Governor Ferry. Hammond was sentenced in December, 1890, to two years in the penitentiary. Since then it has been proven that he was not guilty of grand larceny, and that the charge on which he was convicted was trumped up by agents of English aristocrats sent here for that purpose. Hammond's family has been in dire distress for the past year. Fell From a Yard. San Fbancisco, Feb.6.—John Buchan an, an able seaman of the British ship .iEolus, while aloft on the fore-yard this morning, lost his balance and fell to the deck, a distance of forty feet. His ribs were crushed in, his legs broken and in ternal injuries inflicted that caused death in a few moments. The deceased was 43 years old, single, and a native of Scotland. Floods in North Spain. Madrid, Feb. 6. —Reports from many places in the northern part of the king dom state that heavy floods are devas tating the country there. From the dispatches received it is evident that floods prevail throughout all the north ern provinces. Already great damage has been done, and greater ib feared, as the waters show no sign of subsiding. Tevls Will Retire. San Fbancisco, Feb. 6. —William L. Goad, a director of Wells-Fargo's bank, said that Lloyd Tevis would retire as president of the bank next August, on account of old age.

Mo Let Up In the Fight Against tne Louisiana Lottery. New York, Feb. 6.—A private dis patch received by Charles B. Spahr, one of the editors of the Christian Union, from Col. Clarkson Parker, editor of the New Orleans New Delta, the organ of tbe anti-lottery party, sayß : "We will push the fight to the finish. It is war to the death. We have no reliance on Morris's promises. The Foster ticket will march on to victory." Mr. Spahr, who has been following the campaign in Louisiana, speaking with reference to the Morris letter and the present condition of affairs says: "Unless a governor and legislature hostile to the lottery are elected, the business of the lottery company cannot possibly be brought to an end before January 1, 1895, and would then probably be allowed to con tinue without authorization in the con stitution. With the state machinery in its hands, the lottery might easily call a constitutional convention and secure a recharter, without submitting the prop osition to the people. Many of the anti-lottery people believe Morris him self, who is a millionaire, with influen tial social connections in New York and Boston, would gladly give up the fight and retire from the lottery business with the fifteen or twenty millions he is reported to have accumulated, but it would not be easy for him to dispose of his interest to other men. In spite of the postal law, fifteen or twenty million dollars a year comes to the lottery company from other states. Those who have been fighting the battle against the lottery therefore appeal to their friends in other states to help them in the struggle. The anti-lottery people of Louisiana have already contributed beyond their means in carrying on the campaign. The hard est part of the fight is just ahead." INTERESTING STATISTICS. Ameilcan Grain Carried from New York in British Bottoms. New York, Feb. 6. —W. E. Ferguson, of the New York produce exchange, a recognized authority on statistics on the grain export trade of this port, has just made his annual report. The tables compiled show an enormous increase in the grain export trade of New York, and a dwindling away of the American ocean marine, the American merchant flag be ing driven off the seas by Great Britain. The completeness with which steam has superseded sail in the ocean carrying trade, may be seen from the fact that of 1238 vessels which carried cargoes of grain from this port during '91, only fifteen were sailing vessels. There was shipped from New York during 1891, 68,223,528 bushels of Amer ican grain to teed the hungry mouths of Europe. Not included in this were26o, --377 bushels of buckwheat, which ap- Eears in the statistics for tbe first time, uckwheat never having been exported befo>e in any quantity. Of 1238 ship loads only twenty-five were carried under the American flag. There were only four American steam ers left in the grain-carrying trade — three old passenger steamers of the late American line, which used to run from Philadelphia, under the control of the Pennsylvania railroad. Great Britain has the lion's share of the world's carrying trade, and no less than 792 shiploads left this port under the British flag last year. POSTPONING THE ISSUE. Cleveland's Friends Afraid Hill Will Get a Solid Delegation. New York, Feb. 6.—The committee of Democrats appointed at a recent meeting opposed to the calling of a Btate convention in February, issued an ad dress to the Democrats of tbe state to day, saying the state convention had been called by a committee for the 23d of February, for thl manifest purpose of forestalling public opinion and in fluencing the political action of other states by an apparent unanimous dele gation from New York in favor of the preferred candidate of the ma jority of the committee. The people are urged to fight at the primaries to elect delegates who regard a "snap" convention as detrimental to the true interests of the party, and who, in tak ing their seat, will move that the con vention dissolve without taking any action at all. Devotion is urged to the great issues which carried the party to victory in 1890, and absolute loyalty to the candidate who shall be declared by the national convention to be the best and truest representative of those prin ciples. A PAWNBROKER BOBBED. His Own Criminal Cupidity Responsible far Hia Loss. Omaha, Neb., Feb. 6.—Sam Snyder, pawnbroker, was robbed today of $2100. Several men oame to him representing themselves as train-robbers, and want ing him to act as a "fence" for stolen property. Snyder went to their room last night to talk over the matter with them, and was made a prisoner and told if he did not pay his captors the money they demanded they would kill him. After remaining a prisoner all night, Snyder went to the bank, accompanied by two mcD, and drew the money, the men disappearing with it immediately after. LEONARD'S KICK. He Doesn't Like the Republican Cam paign Committee of Louisiana. New Orleans, Feb. 6.—Hon. A. H. Leonard, Republican nominee for gov ernor, has written a letter to Chaiiman Gage of the Republican state central committee informing him that the cam paign committee appointed by Gage is not, in his (Leonard's) opinion, in har mony with the sentiments of the late state convention. He believes the con vention meant what it 6aid; at all events he did and declines to co-operate with the campaign committee. He appeals to the party, and hopes it will take such action as will be acceptable to all the Republicans. A Steamer Ashore. Norfolk, Va., Feb. 6.—The British steamer Polynesian of the Allan line, bound for Baltimore, ran ashore near the lighthouse at Cape Henry. She is lying 1500 yards from tbe beach, with her orew all safe.

Prosecutor Walsh said he would admit that Southerland was not actually one of the kidnapers, but asked tbe judge to hold the prisoner as an accessory, in that he knew all about the matter and assisted in planning it. The judge took the same view, and held hiua in $5000 bonds for the action of the superior court. The Elder's Cargo Taken Off.

A process by which ordidary dairy butter can be increased In weight one half, by adding pure, sweet milk. For instance, you take 100 pounds of butter, at a cost of $30; take SO pounds of mils: at a cost of 75 cents; other ingredients, 1 cent to the pound, 50 cents. You have a total outlay of $31.25 From this you make 150 pounds of choice butter, at 30 cents per pound, $45. You have a net profit of $13.75 out of an Investment of $31.25, making almost 50 percent in a single transaction. This new discovery is a fortune to any one who secures the right to manufacture it. It is no butterine or oleomargarine, but pure, sweet butter, made from every element of butter it self. No ingredient In it but purely wholesome food, and Its keeping qualities are equal to any butter that can be made. There is no danger of over-production, as fully one-half of the bntter consumed on this coast is imported here from the east—if you were to add 50 per cent to all the product of thlscoaßt you could not then supply the de mand.

It makes a very handsome appearance, and will soon be ready to open. The interest in the success of the pleasure wharf increases as the time draws near for the trustees to order the election for the bonds, which they will do tonight (Saturday,) and from the temper of our citizens who are practi cally unanimous in favor of the project, any monkey business or underhand work indulged in by any of its professed friends will be liable to lead the perpe trators to the soup tureen. There are rumors of outside influence being secret ly brought to bear to defeat the measure, and of speakers coming here to "bear" the enterprise and throw cold water upon it, which may be, and prob ably is true. In my last letter I said Surveyor Charles T. Healy found 27}4 feet of water 1500 from shore at medium tide, instead of, as the Herald had it, 21)4 feet—quite a difference. This is equal to 30 feet 1500 feet from shore at high water mark.
