Preparations That Are Now
Being Made.
A Magnificent Display of Fruit
Some, »f.I the.: Designs Which Are
Tbe Prospects of it Host A 1 tractive
Showing Are Excellent—Local
ities Which Will Be
A very lively intereßt is beiDg mani
fested in the citrus fair which opens
March 2d at Hazard's pavilion. All the
counties and towns in Southern Califor
nia have entered for the big locality
premiums, and the list of individual ex
hibitors will be much larger than either
of the previous years. The localities
are very thoroughly organized and there
ia a great rivalry between the various
sections for the blue ribbon. Orchaid
iats state that there ia an abundance of
first-class fruit thia year, and tbe dis
play promisee to eclipse the magnificent
show of last year, which it will be re
membered was transported to Chicago
and waa tbe wonder and admiration of
the residents of the Windy city.
The enthusiasm is general throughout
all the counties, and each locality ia
striving to make an exhibit that will
outdo ail competitora. The committee
has been inundated with demands for
space and no little difficulty waa ex
perienced in apportioning tbe apace.
The committee succeeded admirably in
its difficult task, and the locality com
mittees are now hard at work on designs
for their displays.
The designs so far submitted are even
more artistic and appropriate than
thoae of laßt year, They are decidedly
original and will overshadow all previous
efforts. Riverside is going to make up
for her absence from the fair last year
by a magnificent display of 400 boxes of
golden fruit from her orchards. Frank
Miller, chairman of the Riverside com
mitte, was in the city yesterday. He
said the design haa not yet been
decided upon, but that it will
not be behind any of the
others in attractivenesß. He also re
marked that they have plenty of fine
fruit to show and plenty of money to
make the display what it should be.
The growera in and about Riveraide are
very enthusiastic, he said, and the fair
is universal talk amongst Californians
and visitors. Mr. Miller, who is a hotel
man of long experience, said that he
haa not seen so many easterneis in Cal
ifornia for years.
There will be a fine display of fruit
from the Cahuenga valley and along
the coast. Messrs. H. I. Rudisell and
A. H. Denker made a trip along the
foothills yeaterday and called on a
number of growers. It ia their inten
tion to secure the co-operation of the
orchardiats to make a coast line display
showing that first class fruit is produced,
in localities bordering the coast.
Ventura will have a magnificent dis
play of fruit and proposes to send down
a large number of palms, potted plants
and cacti which will aid in the general
desire to make the fair an artistic suc
cess. A feature of the exhibit from this
county will be an avenue of palme.
Freßh ferna will be gathered daily and
Bent down to refreah the display.
In a letter to the Becretary yesterday,
Mr. H. M. Walker, a prominent mer
chant of Ventura, who ia taking a very
active part in the work in his county,
says that arrangements have been made
for buabela of buttonhole bouquets to be
given to all who pass the exhibit. He
also says: "We are sparing neither time
nor expense in our efforts to make an
elegant display. Our people are enthu
siastic and are working hard."
Pasadena has submitted plans for a
very beautiful design for the locality ex
hibit. The frame work is in the form of
a crown 20 feet high and 13 feet in di
ameter, and will be filled in with oranges
and lemons arranged as jewels.
Ontario haa alao decided upon a de
sign which is at once artistic and origi
nal. On a large pedeetal will stand a
gigantic lemon constructed of fifteen
boxes of fruit.
San Diego displays as much enthusi
asm as the localities nearer home and
will give all comers a close run for the
prize. R. H. Young of the San Diego
committee writea for 100 ticketa, accom
panying the requeat with a statement
that the citizenß of the city of bayn
climate are all talking citrus fair and
will be here in force.
A large force is already at work pre
paring the decorations to be used to
beautify the building. The manage
ment has wisely decided to do away
with the cloth and cotton draperies, aa
far as poaaible, and will endeavor to use
ivy, palm leaves and cypreaa in lieu of
the fiimay, cheap-looking cheese cloth.
The regulations require that exhibitors
shall use only green, olive and orange
colored.goods in draping their dieplays,
and arrangements have been made for a
supply of material in these colore.
The most original part of the decora
tion will be a canopy of ivy suspended
from the roof in which will be hung
oranges, while hundreds of incandes
cent lamps will glisten amid tbe
green and gold of this roof which
will completely hide the rafters
of the building. The ladies of the
Chrysanthemum Fair society have
volunteered their services in arranging
the ivy, which will be woven in wire
netting, 10,000 feet of which will be re
quired to make the canopy. This work
has been going on for four or five days
past, and the country is be scoured for
ivy and date palma leaves. The super
intendent is desirous of obtaining do
nations of ivy and palms and will send
to any locality for them. The vines are
not injured by the clipping, only short
branches being required.
Many replies have been received from
the noticea sent to the ninety-six gentle
men selected by the executive commit
tee to serves as judges at the fair. The
selections were made without regard to
locality or place of residence, and those
selected are scattered throughout South
ern California. Everyone so far heard
from haa accepted the appointment and
the replies received state that tbe inter
est in the fair iB very general.
Mrs. McMillan Knocked Down and
Badly Bruised.
Another accident occurred on the ca
ble line yesterday afternoon at the cor
ner of Spring and Temple street. Mrs.
McMillan, of Pasadena avenue, East
Loa Angeles, stepped off the car and
waa between the tracks when another
car, coming from the opposite direction,
wheeled around the curve and struck
her, knocking her down and bruising
her very severely.
She waß carried into Beckwith'a drug
atore and was attended by Dr. Brainard
and was then carried in a carriage to her
home. Her injuries are said to be not
Maria Pacheco Found Dead in the
City Jail.
Maria Pacheco, one of the gangVf men
and women who maltreated old man
Grajiola in Buch a brutal manner on
Friday night, was found dead in her cell
in the city jail yesterday morning.
She was one of a crowd consisting of
three women and two men, the leader
in the assault on Grajiola
being Bernabe Castillo. The
whole outfit occupied rooma in
a lodging house on AlißO street near the
cracker factory, where they indulged in
drunken orgies. There were no com
plainta against any of the gang except
ing Castillo and the woman Pacheco.
The others were discharged, Maria Pa
checo was fined $6, and Caßtillo was
held pending developmenta.
The dead woman was extremely fleshy
and was a chronic drunkard. Her death
was, therefore, probably due to the sud
den change from violent stimulation to
total abstinence. No autopsy has vet
been held, but Coroner Weldon will in
vestigate the case.
He Is Placed in the Hands of the San
Francisco Police—His Account of His
Trip to and from Los Angeles,
Terence Fagan, a son of the Bush
street livery stable man, waa returned
from Los Angeles last night, says the
San Franciaco Chronicle, and surren
dered into the custody of the police by
his bondsmen, who went security for
hia appearance in the superior court,
where he will have to answer a charge
•f an assault with a deadly weapon.
Seven montbß ago he stabbed Ed Stem
pie in a saloon on Stockton atreet, near
Market, and was held for trial on $1000
bonds, on which his father, James Fa
gan, and his brother's mother-in-law
went his security. Since his release
Fagan haa been traveling through
Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, Belling
jewelry, while waiting for the reapoear
ance of witnesses now in Montana and
Idaho. Several long continuations have
been granted in this case, which have
caused the police to regard the proceed
ings with Buapicion. Several daya ago
hia bondsmen, fearing he would jump
hie bonds, had him arrested and sent
.lames Fagan jr., a brother of Terence,
to Los Angeles to bring him back. Be
fore James Fagan jr. went south he was
aworn in aa a deputy eheriff. No Booner
had he reached Lob Ang-les and taken
hia brother into cuetody than he pro
ceeded to get gloriously drunk with Ter
ence and a woman the latter was in
company with. In some way the terence
got lost among the saloona and caused
the special deputy sheriff from San
Francisco much trouble to recapture
him. The recapture was effected by
Jamea going to the police station and
waiting for his brother to be "brought
in." At last thej got started and they
arrived in this city last night.
Fagan, sr., fearing that his son might
forget to take hia prisoner to the police
station, at once had Police Officer Gills
go to the Oakland ferry to take Terence
from the special deputy sheriff.
Terence Fagan, when seen by a Chron
icle reporter, said he had no idea of run
ning away. He had been away from the
city seven weeks, traveling in the south
west, and he could have easily escaped
if he desired. When in Los Angeles he
heard that he waa wanted here and he
telegraphed to hia father to send him
$20 to return with if such waa the case.
Someone in San Francisco acared his
father about the matter of the bonds
and bo he was rearrested.
"Jim made a fool of himself down
there," said Terry. "We did drink a
little together and he got too much. The
joke of the affair is that when he got me
the second time he was broke, and I had
to borrow money to bring my deputy
sheriff brother and myself, the prisoner,
back to San Francisco. That don't look
aa though I wanted to 'jump my bail.' "

Gager's Brief Ownership of
An Orange Grove.
His Twelve - Year - Old Trees
Chopped Down.
The District Attorney Says There Ia
No Relief at Law.
An Orange-Wood Dealer Buys the Trees
From Another Man—A Queer
Affair —Is There So
J. Gager, an engineer hailing from
Chicago, has made a rather curious
complaint to Captain Roberts of the po
lice force. Mr. Gager, some time ago,
concluded that life was not worth living
back in bleak, wintry Illinois, and im
mediately set about arranging to locate
in Southern California.
He finally made a deal through a real
estate firm in tlii3 city, by which he ex
changed some property in Chicago for
five large lots out on Central avenue. It
was represented in the deal that there
were seventy-five fine orange trees on
the ground, twelve years old, in lirst
class condition. Mr. Gager arrived here
on Thureday last and paid a visit to the
property. He found everything to be
as represented and so told the
real estate agents, with whom
he at once finally consummated
the deal and took possession of the
property and began figuring with con
tractors with a view to at once erecting
a beautilul residence amid the orange
He paid another visit to the property
on Satuiday morning, and wag startled
and enraged by finding a gang of men
at work on his property. They had
chopped down every orange tree on the
lots, close to the ground, and were en
gaged in trimming off the branches. Mr.
Gager asked the men what they were
"We are going to take these trees
away," said one of gang.
"The you are," said the rail
roader. He then started in to make an
investigation and elicited the following
facts. He found that a party named
Marks had leased from a real
estato agent five lots adjoining hia
newly-purchased property on Central
avenue. Marks had secured the right
to cut down the trees on his own
leased lots, aud in addition to chopping
them down, hia men crossed over an
evergreen hedge and a roadway aepa.rat
ing the lots from Gager's property, and
chopped down all of the orange trees
thereon. Further inquiring developed
the fact that Marks had sold the trees
to a woodworker to make souvenirs of
Southern California, and received $60
for the lot.
Gager was naturally indignant at the
ruthless diatruction of his pleasant an
ticipations of a new home in an orange
grove and applied to Captain Roberts
for redresß. That officer hunted up
several of the learned legal luminaries
of the county district attorney's
office and ascertained that there was no
redress to be secured for Gager, but that
the woodworker could bring an action
against Marks. Mr. Gager was also
told that possibly an action might hold
for malicious mischief. He, however,
is not satisfied and proposes to seek
other advice as to whether he cannot
secure suitable redress. Captain Rob
erta, too, is not eatisfied with the legal
opinion supplied by the county diatrict
attorney's office, and saya that aa mat
ters Btand, there iB nothing to prevent
unscrupulous individuals from chopping
down trees on any private property in
the city as far as punishment ia con
