For BOtne days past canvassers have bean out soliciting advertisements for the Illcstbatsd Hbbald Annual. This will be the twelfth issue of thiß invalua ble publication, which has done ao much to develop Loa Angelea and Southern California. Our agenta have met a moßt gratifying success, and they will remain in the field until it ia time to put the work to press. The present week in congreßß prom ises to be a lively one, owing to the probable alignment of the members of the house on the silver question, and the defining of the economical policy of the Democrats in the senate. The outlook for the coming citrus fair is most gratifying. There will be a l«rg*r representation of the several in terests of this section in that gathering than has signalized any exhibit in the past. The applications for space are numerous and from all quarters, and the quality as well as quantity of the exhibits will reach a high standard. The latest dispatches seem to indicate that England has succeeded in her de signs on the new khedive of Egypt. Abbas, with the sultan's consent, will be' invested with the viceroyalty at Cairo instead of at Constantinople, and thus the land of the Pharaohs will re main under the thumb of John Bull. The French minister to Brazil contra dicts the rumors circulated through British sources of trouble in that re public. On the contrary, he says the whole country is in a most tranquil and prosperous condition and that the gov ernment bas the fullest confidence of the people. The efforts of British agents to foment trouble in the South American republics is meeting with poor success. The French government ia very chary in permitting imports of American pork, cm the pretext that it is unwholesome food. Yet we are told that one-third of the meat consumed in Paria is derived from the carcaeees of worn-out horses and mules. Thia eort of diet may not aubject the eater to trichinosis, but we rather auspect that the average French gourmand would prefer to fill up with American hog. A community suffers a great loss when a man like John Maxwell Skinner passes from its midst. He was an exemplai of the scriptural aphorism that an in dustrious man shall stand befote king?. He was characterized by sterling worth, was upright and honorable in all his dealings and haa left monuments to his memory all over Los Angeles in tbe great buildings which he erected. The sense of his exceptional worth was shown by tbe great concourse of Angel efios who followed his remains to their last resting place. A noble man, a staunch friend and a valuable citizen has passed to the great beyond and it will not be easy to fill his place. This bichloride of gold treatment for drunkenness is the occasion of a great deal oi discussion of late. There are two interesting questions in connection with this new panacea. The first is whether it does not produce death aa a secondary effect, in many instances. This phase of the matter ia suggested by the sudden ending of young Jim Fair, and of many others in the east, whose cases have been reported in the newspapers. The second is, whether it really cures the appetite for strong drink. The number of relapses from supposed confirmed teetotalisin are be coming alarmingly frequent. For a cure which makes such authoritative claims it eeema to have fallen from ita high es tate. The moßt conapicuoua instance of all was in the case of John R. Minea, a literary man of aome note, who had written much under the nam de plume of "Felix Old Boy," and who contrib uted an article on this topic to a mid summer number of the North American Review, in which he asserted a positive cure in hia own case. Six weeka later Mr. Minea died irom delirium tremens in a public hospital. The telegraph, the other day, con tained talks with two distinguished men on a subject that occupies the at tention of multitudes of people in tbe United States, viz., the next Democratic nominee for president. One waa the Hon. Joeeph E. Brown, late Democratic senator of the United States from Georgia. Mr. Brown ie a notably sa gacious public man, who haa seen many transitions in politics in his day. He is of opinion that Senator Hill has earned the Democratic nomination for presi dent and ought to receive it. He dwells upon the great services rendered by Hill to the Democratic party and to the cause of the people, through the restoration of the great atate of New York to a popular form of government, by reinstating the majority in control of THE LOS ANGELES HERALD MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 15, 1892 the several branches of the state govern mentnt Albany. Onr Republican friends call thia stealing a legislature. As a matter of fact, it wa3 in effect prevent ing a legislature from being stolen by the Republicans. Governor Hill's ac tion was spirited, and the man and the hour had happily conjoined. That it was an action of Jacksonian firmness is undoubted, but the fact that neither Republican nor Mugwump journals can get over is tbat the supreme court of the state of New York, iv a formal adjudi cation, sustained every act of Governor Hill. Charles A. Dana, the brilliant editor of the New York Sun, was no less outspoken than ex-Senator Brown. He was unhesitating in stat ing to the reporter of a Boston i paper that Governor Hill was the overwhelming choice of tho Democracy of New York, and that if nominated he would be elected. He dismissed contemptuously the opposi tion to Hill in his own state; and, in deed, on an inspection of the names of those who figured at the Cooper Insti tute meeting, it does not seem to have any vitality. Why any Democrats Bhould get excited at the prospect of the nomination for president of a man whom Governor Roswell P. Flower pro nounced "the best and ablest leader the Democratic party has had in the past forty years" it puzzles us to Bee. Mr. Hill seems to be inspired by the very genius of success. Hia knightly figure is decidedly the most inspiring the Democrats have seen in many a day. The attempts to beßmirch him have pioved miserable failures; and every primary election reported from his own state is a clarion note in his vindication. AN IMPORTANT ADVANCE. The Southern California Railway, with its customary enterprise, has placed a 5:30 morning train on its kite-shaped track. This will admit of patrons of the Herald receiving their papers in time for breakfast aa far east as San Bernardino. That this change will be appreciated goes without saying. All intermediate points will be likewise favored. The full telegraphic and other news service of the Herald will thus be at the service of its readers as soon as his local paper will reach the average citizen, who rarely cares to rise before 7 a. m. SOUTH RIVERSIDE AND AUBURNDALE. Southern California is emphatically the land of surprises, and amongst all the agreeable things in that line which the visitor encounters, one of the most interesting is the new and growing set tlement of South Riverside. Anything with the name of Riverside attached to it suggests great potentialities of growth. In April of 1873 the writer passed through Riverside when there were only two houses in the colony. One was the modest cottage of Judge North, with its accom panying nursery, and tbe other was a small hotel, which had but recently been completed. These humble factors were the nuclei of the magnificent Riv erside of today—a city whose large pop ulation for an interior city is one of its least attractions, being, as it is, the cen ter ol the most beautiful and remuner ative horticultural output in the world and a congery of homes of poetical at tractiveness. South Riverside—the creation of the other day—presents incomparably greater attractions than its northern namesake did when the writer first saw the place. The new and thriving town and twin colony of South Riverside and Auburndale can be reached in an hour and a half on the kite Bhaped track of the Southern California railway. And a very suggestive picture meets the eye of the visitor when he gets off the carß. He is told that, three or four years ago, where South Riverside now stands, there was a barren plain. He finds a nascent city in being, and a very charm ing one at that. A bank, a hotel—the Temescal, of really pretentious elegance —a school house that rivals the Lincoln school of San Francisco; and elegant homes, with well-appointed grounds, show for the fiftieth time that in South ern California the scriptural simile of Jonah's gour.d is the only analogy to the miracles of growth that are daily transpiring in this section of almost in stant fruition to all projects. The South Riverside Land and Water company, represented by the Messrß. Joy and Hudson, have entered on a much more colossal project than that which first engaged the attention of Judge North in Riverside proper. That enterprising and sagacious gentleman dealt with a comparatively small territory. The present scheme embraces, altogether, between the two colonies, a superb spread of 16,000 acres. And such ,lands aa are embraced in thia ample domain are hard to parallel elsewhere. An interminable vißta of young orchards ."stretches off on every hand. The citrus fruits have been ac corded the place of honor, but the de ciduous have by no means been neg lected. A tine irrigation system has been perfected, with an immense reser voir at the baße of the foothills to the south. The waters for this storage sys tem are derived from Temescal creek and from artesian wells, and the supply is abundant. But for purposes of general farming irrigation is not required for these prolific lands. On every hand fields of grain and barley stretched as far as the eye could reach. The soil is a rich, friable loam, and plowing for wheat and barley is still under way. When the grain re turns for the year Bhall have been heard from the amount of the cereals which will be contributed by South Riverside and Auburndale will astonish those who perhaps have never heard of these places. These lush crops extend for miles until the creek is reached which leads to tbe foot of tbat range of the Temescal mountains which embraces the Cajalco tin mines. And the mention of theae mines re calls the fact that, in addition to her other strong claims on the favor of the public and of those seeking homes. South Riverside has considerable pre tensions as a manufacturing center. She is the point from which the tin from the Cajalco will be shipped to the mar ket, and is the mart in which all the business of the hundreds of miners who will be employed in developing these tin lodes will be transacted. In addition, the works of the Pacific Clay Manufacturing company are located at South Riverside, aud this of itseif promises to be a great industry. The clay in this immediate neighborhood ad mits of the manufacture of a very tine quality of vitrified sewer and water pipe. The Porphyiy Paving company, the Standard Fertilizing company and two pottery works aro also in full blast in South Riverside, and are doubtless a mere hint of what will be developed in these lines in tbe near future. The spectacle presented in South Riverside is one calculated to interest any one who cares to note the develop ment of a new country. A second Riv erside is ns sure to grow up there as that fhfl eight will auccved the drvy. In addition, its manufacturing facilities are apt to attain gratifying proportions. If the tin mines in the mountains back of the town should attain the di mensions of those of Cornwall— a proposition which many intelli gent people are ready to champion— the exquisite beauty and productiveness of the valley will have behind them a substantial backing such as few places in Southern California possess. How ever that may be, as a center of delight ful homes, Burronnded by every form of poetical and gracious vegetation and flora, South Riverside is cure to be one of the phenomenal colony succeeses oi this section, an agreeable destiny which her charming neighbor, Auburndale, will share. JOHN MAXWELL SKINNER. The Funeral of a Highly Esteemed Man. The obsequies of the late John Max well Skinner took place from hil late residence, 1438 Carroll avenue, yester day afternoon. The funeral was un doubtedly the largest ever held in Los Angeles. It was attended by a very large number oi the city's most promi nent and leading citizens and aleo by a large delegation of honest toilers. That every one who knew the deceased ad mired him waa fully shftwn by the large concourse of people that lament ingly paid their last respects to hia memory. The funeral was held under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity. Southern California lodge No. 278 con ducted the services. By 2 o'clock, the time set for the funeral, the residence of the deceased waß unable to accommodate the many mourners, and some time was consumed before tbe ceremonies began, waiting for the multitude of friends to pass the coffin and take their last look at the peaceful countenance of the deceased. The floral tributes were very numeroua and fairly buried the beautiiul casket from sight. The Rev. Dr. Henry Newell of Bethany church, opened the ceremonies with a fervent prayer, and in his address that followed paid a high tribute to the memory of the deceased. This peroration, which was beautiful and pathetic, brought tears to the eyes of all who were present. "Neaier My God to Thee" was then eutig by a quartette composed oi Wil liam E. Deity, J. Newkirk, Louis Ziunamon and Mr. Chipron, all friends of the deceased, who sang in a very touching manner. The members of the Masonic order then took charge of the funeral, and it can be eaid with out fear of contradiction that it was the largest attendance of Master Masons and Royal Arch Masons, ever seen here on an occasion of this kind. The mem bers viewed the body of their late brother and then escorted his remains to the place of interment in the Ever green cemetery, where the beautiful ceremonies of the order were conducted and which were concluded by the quar tette singing, Come Unto Me. The pall bearers were Hervey Lindley, Charles H. Humphreys, O. F. A. Last, C. W. Morgan, Clarence Stewart and E. Thomas Hughes. Thus was the last tribute paid to a just and honeet man, a loving and affec tionate husband, and a kind and in dulgent father. It would not be proper to let the vail of death be drawn over this noble man without a tribute to his memory, which will ever be green in the hearts and minds of those who knew him. He waß distinguished among his fellow men by the possession of marked mental endowments, and bo happily did he use them, and with such effective grace, that he won and preserved the esteem and love of all who came within hie influence. In hie private and Bocial intercourse he was amiable, confiding and generouß to a fault. Few men in our midst acquired more numerous and devoted friends. His loss is not an or dinary one. Requiescat in pace. AMUSEMENTS. Tonight Richards & Pringle'e min strels are billed for the opera house. The engagement closes with tomorrow evening's performance.

A YOUN3 MAN GETS INTO SERIOUS TROUBLE. A Chinese Charges Him With Impersonat ing an Officer and Extorting Money. Two Sides to the Story, However. A young man who gave his name as Reed was arrested last night in China town by Officer Ihms for impersonating an officer and exacting hush-money fiom some Chinese gamblers. The Chi namen claim that the prisoner came to their place of business, where they were engaged in a quiet little Sunday night game of casino. Reed flashed a police badge on them and arrested two of the players. He marched them to Los An geles street near First, and taking them into an alley promised to let them go if they would put up $5 apiece. One of them claims to have paid the required sura, but the other had no money with him. At any rate the Chinamen were released, and returned at once to Chinatown, where they complained to Officer Ihms. The latter went on a hunt for Reed, and a barber named King, who had been in his company during the even ing. He found the two in Nigger alley, and took them to the police station. There no money was found on Reed, but he had a badge with the inscription, "Lawson Patrol, No. 7." He was locked up, while King was released. The other side of the story is very different. The two young men, who hitherto have borne good reputations, went to Chinatown on a frolic, and got into a "chuck-a-luck" game, in which King participated, while Reed was only an onlooker. Through some ingenious trickery the heathen succeeded in win ning King's money, and Reed flashed the old Lawson badge to intimidate them into giving up their ill-gotten gains. The gamblers returned $2 to King, and the young men left the joint. Both Reed and King told precisely the came story, though examined separate ly. They claim that they never left Chinatown, and it really does not Beem plausible that they would return to the Asiatic colony had they committed the crime they are charged with by the celestials. Mr. Mtliran's Grand Sale of Turkish Goods. Los Angeles people had a feast in Turk ish goods on Saturday. Mr. Mihran's store, 2-16 South Spring street, was well crowded by a select class of people. At 10 :iJO a. m. the sale opened with a few remarks about the unreserved character of the sale. Mr. Mihran ex pressed his great pleasure in seeing many familiar faces of his old custom ers, which was a full testimony of his unquestionable reputation. Tbe sale was a grand one, so far as the amount was concerned, but the prices, to their great eurpriee, were very low. The beauty of hia genuine goodß and the low prices tempted many who had come only to see and to hear him. Even tourists were tempted to buy and to ship to the east, who said that they could not buy there at double the price. Every article when knocked down peo ple expressed their suprise for the cheap ness with a Bigh, and all were whisper ing that such low prices were never before seen. This grand sacrifice sale will continue today also. The Bale commences at 10:30 a. iv. and 2 p. m. sharp at 246 South Spring street. Today some especially .fine gooda will be offered. Biggest bar gains naturally go at the start of the sale, therefore early attendance is ad vantageous. It must be remembered that Mr. Mihran's pahs only last two or three days. He never makes long, tiresome sales; he is quick. Sella in one day what others cannot sell in a week, thus aaveß many extra expenaea. Three things are necessary to make competition : First, to buy cheap and from the very place; second, to bring di rect and save expenses; third, to win customers with fair and satisfactory deal ings, which three requirements Mr. Mihran is the only person who has ful filled. "Of course," he aaid, "those who buy in Chicago and New York at high prices and paying enormous freight try on this coaßt, saying direct imported can never meet the requirements of an auction, and are obliged to carry imitations to make out even." The object oi attending an auction is to get bargains. What is the use of spending time at a humbug sale where nothing is sold unless it brings more than New York store prices. People are warned against this kind of Bale. At Mr. Mihran's sale buyers can feel safe, as all'who attend on Saturday will tell that this is true. There is no hum bug business done at his sale, and he employs the most renowned auctioneers of this city and does not carry with him any salaried auctioneers, as many oth ers do to fool the people. Santa Barbara. Valentines are flying galore today. The Mexico arrived from the north laat evening with a big list of passengers for thia place. One lonely vag with a bad eye waa given an hour to leave town yesterday morning by Judge Wheaton. Tbe bunco artists spoken of in several southern papers lately, have paid Santa Barbara their respects. After victim izing a few Arlington "bloods" they left for parts unknown Friday afternoon. They are very smooth and reaped quite a harvest in this "paradise up to date." Tyndal), the mind reader, appears at the opera house this evening. Santa Barbara's exhibit at the South ern California citrus fair, to be held at Hazard's pavilion, opening March 2d, promises to be exceptionally fine. The exhibit as proposed will be in the form of a garden, and some of the rare palms and other trees to be exhibited at the World's Fair will be shown. Tourists are making the most of Santa Barbara's fine weather and beautiful drives this season. Throughout the day parties are going to and coming(from the valleys, and late into the night may be heard tbe joyous singing and laughter of moonlight parties. Timothy Hill, the self confeßsed "bad man," appeared in the superior court yesterday morning at 9 o'clock to an swer to the charge of burglary preferred by Mrs. Ellis, and upon which he was held over for trial in Judge Crane's court Tuesday. The old gardened ap peared very nervous and occasioned no little amusement by his double answer of "guilty" and "not guilty." His case was set for trial on April 11th. In the meantime Tim will remain in tbe county jail.

Dr. Howard E. Ames of the United Statee navy, who has taken so prominent a part in th various discussions during the convention of the American Public Health association, is probably one of the most thoroughly informed men on the questibn of proper and nutritious food in the United States. One of the articles of food to which he has paid particular atten tion is butterine, which he considers a far su perior article of diet to butter. "The reason it is not a more common article of diet," he explained to a reporter of the Star, "is because of a popular prejudice, founded largely upon imagination and careless state ments made by many uninformed persons, and, as a matter of fact, there isn't one in 20,000 who can tell the difference between the two. The nutritious value is fully equal to that of butter; it is much cheaper, and when properly made will remain sweet and fit for consump tion much longer. ' There might be some argument against but terine made in small establishments where the material from which it is made is allowed to accumulate lor several .days, but in tbe large establishments like those in this city, where the material is taken from animals killed the same day, the butterine is moro free from im purities than butter. There is more fermenta tion or putrefactive change in milk than the other materials, and the best butterine iv that made with the least milk. '•The manufacture of butterine In properly constructed factories is much more clean, too, than the manufacture of batter, and the fac tories here, I notice, are nearly perfect in that respect. The matter used for coloring is in no way injurious, and the high temperature to which the materials are subjected perfectly sterilizes them. I have seen butterine and but ter put up in cans at the same time, and when opened ten or twelve months later the butterine was sweet, while the butter was rancid and unfit for use. "The idea is to educate the people up to using it. I have recommended its use for the regular rations in the army and navy, and am satisfied tbat it will prove a better article of food than butter. It should be moro generally used and not looked upon as an inferior arti cle and makeshift for butter, when it Is really superior."—l Kansas City Star. N. B.
