James Campbell Makes a New
He Is Figuring on a Road to
Salt Lake City.
It Looks as if the Santa Fe Was Back
ing the Scheme.
He Resign* From the Presidency of the
Sant a Monica Wharf and Termi
nal Railroad Company.
News Notes.
James Campbell, the president of the
Santa Monica Wharf and Terminal
Railroad company, yesterday resigned
his position. He was seen by a Herald
reporter, but refused to give any reason
for his action. It is easily understood,
though. Mr. Campbell has always been
in the employ of or working in the in
terests of tbe Santa Fe company. He
went into Santa Monica, worked up the
Wharf and Terminal Railroad company,
secured a franchise and most of the
right of way, and then had the whole
busineßß deeded to General Manager
K. H. Wade, of the Southern California
company. Having attained his purpose
he of course resignß ; at least that is the
way it appears.
Mr. Campbell has done a great deal to
advance tbe Santa F£'s prospects in
Southern California, and has enabled
that company to seriously cut into the
business of the Southern Pacific. He
built the branch to Redondo Beach; he
built the Redondo Beach company's
narrow-guage line; he engineered the
Rattlesnake island deal, by which the
Terminal road has got to San Pedro,
and by which, by means of a traffic ar
rangement, the Santa F6 has direct
access to tbat port.
He is never idle, and the reporter
who saw him asked him what he would
take hold of next.
■'I am going to make an overland trip
to Salt Lake," replied the canny rail
road operator, "and I am going to travel
over what would make a good railroad
line from Barstow to that city."
"Froaa Baretow?" eaid the reporter.
"Then you must be working for the
Santa F<s.
"No, air; I am not," was the decided
reply. "I have built a number of Bmall
roads about here, which have been suc
cessful ; so I think that perhaps I can
tackle a bigger one." And not another
word would he say.
However, no one, least of all a man of
Mr. Campbell's experience, would at
tempt to build a road from Los Angeles
to Salt Lake City unless he bad some
company's backing. Mr. Campbell has
always had the Santa FiS'b, and it is rea
sonable to suppose tbat be has it now.
The whole thing has the aspect of a
move to shut off the Terminal road from
building the line.
Mr. Campbell is as experienced and
accomplished a railroad man as there iB
on the coast, and the uiere fact that he
is going to make a trip over a proposed
railroad line from Barstow to Salt Lake
is proof tbat an important move in the
railroad world is on the tapis. Would
not such a line be of benefit to the Santa
F6? and has not the Santa F6 been par
ticularly aggressive of late? All the
indicative straws show that Mr. Camp
bell's denial of going to Salt Lake in the
Santa Fe's interests mr.y be nothing
more than a bit of justifiable diplomacy.

A St. Paul Defaulting Collector Said
to Be Here.
One of the sons of Yoerge, tbe St.
Paul brewer, is in the city, and mci
' dentally applied to the detective office
for aid in an attempt to locate a man
named John C. Clemens, who is alleged
to be an embezzler. Ii Mr. Yoerge'a
story be true, which can hardly be
doubted, Clemens is one of the worst
ingrates on record. The story goes that
some months ago the man sought for
was in the employ of the Y T oerge
Brewery company as collector. One
night the proprietors, in overhauling
the books, found that Clemens was
eomething over $900 short in his ac
counts. The collector had, however,
been very unfortunate sometime before,
having incurred great expense through
the death of his father, his wife and his
child. The Yoerges, therefore, were in
clined to be lenient with the man, and
on the morning after the discovery of
his crime they told him that they knew
about his shortage, but would neither
prosecute him nor even discharge
him if he would promise to
make good the lobb. Clemens Eeemed
penitent, and made the promise asked
for. That afternoon, however, he went
out, collected $306 and escaped from the
city. Since then he has been located
twice, once as Pullman car conductor on
the Northern Pacific and another time
in the same capacity on the Southern
.Pacific run between San Francisco and
Los Angeles.
Young Mr. Yoerge, after the escape of
the embezzler, went to see the governor
of Minnesota and asked whether tbat
state would not do something toward
bringing Clemens back. The inquiry
was answered in the negative, and the
matter was dropped. Now that Mr.
Yoerge came out here for a visit, he
thought he might as well try to find
Clemens, or at any rate to inform the
authorities of the iniquity of that indi
The local detectives have tried to find
the man, but at present think that he is
not here and has not been here.
Judge Clark's Decision Explained and
Editors Los Angeles Herald: In
your issue of this morning, there is an
article in relation to Judge Clark's de
cision in the case of the People of Cal
ifornia, ex rel. of W. H. H. Russell vs.
W. William G. Schreiber, that does
great injustice to Judge Clark. The
document commented upon ia the final
judgment entered in the case. Hereto
fore Judge Clark had filed his written
opinion. The final judgment neces
sarily results from the decision as indi
cated in the opinion. No other final
judgment under the law and the opin
ion could have been rendered.
The alleged inconsistency between the
opinion and the final judgment arises
from an ignorance of the facts in the
case on the part of those who think
there ia an inconsistency. The only
issue in the case before Judge Clark,
waa as to the right and title to the office
of colonel of the Seventh regiment.
In his opinion Russell was the colonel
and Schreiber not. Such being the case
the law preacribea the judgment as ren
dered. The facts that seem not to have
been known to those who asßume that
there was an inconsistency between the
opinion and final judgment are as fol
Preliminary to the series of blunder
ing orders that resulted in unlawfully
placing Schreiber in Russell's office', Gov
ernor Waterman, as commander in
chief, had issued an order in which he
directs that Colonel Russell "will not
assume command of his regiment with
out orders from this office." In the
briefs filed in behalf of Schreiber, his
attorneys called attention to this order
of Governor Waterman, and claimed
that it was in force and that the court
could not in this action do away with
its effect. Judge Clark properly replied
(in his opinion) that only the title of
the office was involved in the case, and
not the exercise of its functions, and he
was not called upon to pass on the effect
of the order in question. The distinc
tion is clear and obvious to anyone.
After the issuance of the order in ques
tion, Colonel Russell was still Colonel
of "his regiment" though forbidden to
assume command of it.
Our own position with reference to
the order in question is that it was
equivalent to putting Colonel Russell
under arrest, and that as it was not fol
lowed in ten days, as required by the
regulations, by any charges, etc., that
the order was at the expiration of ten
days at an end, and is no longer in force.
However that may be, its effect was not
involved in the suit before Judge Clark.

Important Land Cases in the Circuit
The mails brought a big bundle of
complaints to the office of the clerk of
the United States circuit court. In all
the papers in twenty suits in ejectment
were placed on file by the Southern Pa
cific Railroad company against land
owners along the line of the road in Tu
lare county.
The property involved in the suits
amounts to several thousand acres of
land, which the railroad claims under
the land grants from the government.
According to the bills in equity under
which the ejectments are asked, the
Southern pacific Railroad company
claims that these lands are all odd sec
tioned lands, and lie within thirty miles
of the line of the railroad, said sections
being granted to the railroad company
under the act of congress, July 27, 1806.
The suits filed are againßt the following

Constantly Increasing—A Proposed
Missionary Juriadiotion of This Part
of the Diocese—Notes of the Business.
An unusually interesting and happy
meeting of the Southern Convocation of
the Diocese of California has been in
session this week in All Saintß' church,
Pasadena. The attendance of both
clergy and lay delegates was unusually
large, and the interest waa unabated to
the close of the session.
The convocation opened Wednesday
morning with holy communion. Dean
Trew was celebrant, with Rev. Maxwell
Ben Oliel gospeler and Rev. H. B. Res
tariek epistler. Rev. Mesars. Kienzle
of Los Angelea and Cowie, general mia
sionary, alao assisted in the service.
The rector was master of ceremonies.
A sermon was preached by the Rev.
Franklin Adams of Pomona.
At the business aession in the after
noon the report of the committee on a
new act of by-laws and regulations for
the transaction of business waa first
heard and adopted. It was presented
by Rev. J. D. H. Browne.
The dean's report showed an increas
ingly large work done in missions. The
mission at Redlands has bee. me a par
ish and has called the Rev. W. T. Man
ning of San Diego aB its rector. The
Rev. Alfred Fletcher of Redlands goes
to the new missions recently established
at South Riverside and Temescal. At
Paso Robles a guild hall is erecting for
church purposes generally.
The dean referred terms to
the death of the Rev. S. H. S. Ilderton,
formerly ol San Diego. A committee
afterwards reported a suitable memo
An essay read by Rev. Mr. Ben Oliel,

ject of Diocesan and Parochial Organiza
In the evening a missionary meeting
was held in the church, with addresses
by Rev. Messrs. Ben Oliel and Cowie.
The report of the latter on his work
done in the past five months, in the
seven counties forming the southern
convocation, enlisted the greatest inter
est in the minds of the congregation
present. In Santa Barbara county, with
Lompoc as the center of work, and the
Temescal and South Riverside district,
the success has been especially gratify
On Thursday the Rev. H. B. Res
tarick and M. C. Dolten, now rector of
Riverside, read motions. Afterjihat, at a
bueineßs session, the subject of the con
tinuance of the convocational mission
ary at his work was discussed. Rectora
of pariahea will be asked to pledge
aome sum, and the missionaries under
his charge will also be expected to
do their part.
A discussion followed as to the advis
ablity of recommending the erection of
Southern California into a missionary
jurisdiction. Though all present were
impressed with the advantage of the
scheme, it was felt that the matter
should be left to the annual convention,
which convenes next May.
Resolutions of thanks for hospitality
received were followed by a hymn and
prayer, and benediction by the dean.
The next meeting will be held in Santa
Monica in the summer.
Besides those mentioned, there were
lay delegates from Pasadena, all the
parishes of Los Angeles, Garvanza, Po

The State Board of Trade on the Sub
The state board of trade held a meet
ing at San Francisco on Tuesday, at
which the following proceedings were
had in reference to marketing California
fr.iit in England:
"A number of letters from England
were read by Manager Maßlin relating
to the introduction of dried fruits into
the English market. The sentiments of
the writers were that conditions were fa
vorable for sale of California fruits in
all parts of England, BUbject, however,
to conditions of price, quality, purity,
etc. Some fruit from Arizona was re
cently Eent to London and met with
ready sale, and in the opinion of the
writers California fruits would do as
well if not much better.
"Mr. Maslin announced that Mr. Pat
ton, of the Johnson-Locke company, had
been commissioned to canvass the state
to secure a carload of California fruit for
shipment and sale in England. It was
intended to send this fruit as an experi
ment to ascertain how California Iruit
would be received across the water. The

Crime on the Increase.
Editors Herald: On picking up a
part of an old issue of the Pasadena
Journal, I notice this item: "One hun
dred and twenty-four persons from Los
Angeles were incarcerated in the prisons
and madhouses of this state in the year
1883. The use of intoxicating bever
ages caueed most of the offenses against
law and produced much of the insanity."
I have no means at hand to ascertain
the exact facts for tbat year, but from
the report of the state board of prison
directors of the state of California for
tho fiscal year ending June 30,1890, I
glean some statistics that perhaps are
similar in percentage to the year 1883.
I will confine my statements to the pri
son at San Quentin, for the report of
the prison at Folsom is not carried out
so that I can find what I want.
During that fieeal year there were re
ceived 1392 prisoners. Under the head
of cause of committing crime, I find
that liquor is charged with 295 out of
the 1392 offenses; I find that 547 were
regular attendants at church, and 469
irregular, making 1016 trained in
churches ; also, that 540 were regular at
tendants at Sabbath school, and 475 ir
regular, making 1015 trained in Sabbath
school; I find also that 1035 were
Christians of the different churches
and 140 were pagans, and 217 irreligious.
I find under the same heading that
opium caused 560 of the crimes. Then,
when I turn to the table under the head
of moral relations, that 683 were in
temperate, 49 moderate, 46 temperate,
614 opium veers. So, when we deduct
the 140 paganß, calling them all opium
users, it leaves 474 opium users that are
not pagans.
I find that in the biennial report of
tbe trustees of the state insane asylum
at Agnews, also at Stockton, that there
were received in the two years ending
June 30, 1890, 1101 males and 379 fe
males. Alcohol was the cause in 112
cases, and religion the cause in 69 cases.
I find that three brewers and eight sa
loon-keepers are also in those asylums.
I find tbat the prison and asylum
statistics of California correspond very
closely to those of lowa, Illinois, Kansas
and other states which I have made my
self somewhat familiar with, except the
opium record of California, the other
states showing little or no opium rec
In the seventeenth annual report of
the board of commissioners of public
charities of the commonwealth of Penn
sylvania, for 1886,1 find the following:
"A study of the statistics of this prison
will show that the prevalent impression
tbat intemperance is the most fruitful
cause of crime is erroneous. There are
crimes such as burglary, forgery and
professional thievery, the practice of
which is inconsistent with indulgence
in strong drink, and it is well to under
stand that if there were no such thing
as drunkenness, such an institution as
the eastern penitentiary would lose but
few of its inmates."
An article published in the Sunday
morning Herald, of January 24th, un
der the heading of Crimes arid Pauper
ism, by John Shirley Ward, is of much
interest, and shows whither we are
drifting, that with all the organized
effort against crime, it is on the in
I find that according to the census of
fice report there were in the penitenti
aries of the United States in 1890, 45,
--233 criminals of all grades, from the
sneak-thief to the defaulting cashier.
In 1880 there were 35,538 convicts in the
penitentiaries of the country, an in
crease in ten years of 9695. Now when
we take into consideration the statisti
cal facts that less than one-third of the
people of the United States are Chris
tians, and that about three-fourths of
the criminals in the penitentiaries are
Christians, it presents a strange picture.
The fight is not made in the right direc
tion. Whenever people will stop breed
ing criminals then a better condition of
of society will dawn on our beautiful
land. E. Lewis.
