HIGH OFFICIALS OF THE COMPANY IN SAN FRANCISCO. President Allan Manvel Said to Be Ex pected in March With All the Direct ors—A Northern Opinion. The San Francisco Call of Sunday con tains the following: There seems to be in progress a gen eral gathering of Santa Fe railroad men in San Francisco, and the movements of these officials are being looked after with considerable interest, in view of the many rumors concerning an exten sion of thia line to San Franciaco. While other eaetern lines crop up now and then for discussion concerning the trans continental problem, the Santa Fe' is rjrettv nrortorallv Inntort nnnn Ktr lha t * - v J & " J -~ ~ " "l~ J «..t3 merchants and business men of Cali fornia aa "the only way out of it." One reason for this may be found in tbe fact that it is nearer to San Fran cisco than any other overland line, and that the officials of this road have been actively engaged for some time in mak ing surveys for prospective routes to this city. Added to this comes the in formation that the road haa made a strong bid for the Donahue property, which ia now awaiting a purchaaer. The California and Nevada is now known positively to be a part of the Santa Ft- system, and the work of ex tending this line will commence early iv the spring. A. Grant is now in the east procuring auppliea for the propoeed work. The Baden stockyard scheme has been a Santa Ffi project from its incep tion, and nearly every man interested in thia move is alao a Santa Fe stock holder. PRIMF. MOVERS FROM THE EAST. A short time ago four gentlemen (all prime movers in this matter) came to California and brought their families. Three have announced their intention of residing here permanently, while the fourth has gone to Europe. Yeaterday Assistant Auditor Gillette of the Santa Fe arrived in his private car, accom panied by four other officials of the same road. While his coming poaaeasea no particu lar significance Mr. Gillette brings the information that Preaident Manvel will leave Chicago for thia city on March 1, with the entire board of directors of the Santa F6 system. In Southern Califor nia this line has bumped into ita great rival, the Southern Pacific, at least a dozen times during the paat six months. There is evidence that a genuine spirit of rivalry is being developed which did not exist when the two roada some time ago agreed to atop the Atlantic and Pa cific at Mojave. . RECOVERING FROM THE BOOM. The Santa F6 in Southern California is juat beginning to recover from its reck less speculative overbuilding into un populated territory during the boom un der its former local management. A number of the "boom towns" then laid out have since begun to develop the re sources of their surrounding country and are making considerable shipments of fruit, vegetables and other produce. This makes the road feel independent, and it appears to be nothing loth to try conclusions with the Fourth and Town send magnates. The early inauguration of the reduced orange rate was a bold atroke. The com pany ia Baid to be also contemplating a 90-cent rate on beans from Ventura county regardless of the Transcontinental association. Then, tbe Santa Fe lias ar ranged to run to San Pedro, the South ern Pacific's Btronghold, over the Ter minal line. As a set-off, the Southern Pacific is about to build its great break water and wharf at Santa Monica canon. Further, the Santa F6 obtained the property and right of way tjf a wharf company at South Santa Monica, whith er a branch will be built from Ingle wood. Again, there ia a big tussle between the two companies over right of way near Redlands. Altogether, it looka as if there would aoon be open war between the two great corporations. The Santa F6 cut into the Southern Pacific's business at San Pedro by de veloping Redondo, which ambitious young port did a bigger shipping busi neaa by steamer. Hundreds of Professors. In the counties of Luzerne, Schuylkill, Carbon and Northumberland, Pa., there are 478 men who insist upon the title of "professor." This includes musicians, teachers of music, schoolmasters, two sleight-of-hand men, one ventriloquist, four sluggers or "professors of sparring," nine dancing masters, two oyster openers and twelve drink mixers or bartenders. Twenty years ago tho title was a scarce one in the coal fields. It was worn only by college teachers and it carried a weight with it.—Hazleton Sentinel. Why They Are Called "Coppers." Fifty years ago policemen wore no uniforms, their badge of office being merely a copper shield. It was from this shield that they took their name of "coppers," which is often diminished to "cops." — Macon McCormick in New York Advertiser. Do you want help!

It has seven full octaves, and looks exactly like a fine upright piano. There are no stops in view, and the instrument is worked by two pedals exactly like those on a piano, and a 6-year-old child iB able to work them with ease. The delicacy and variety of its tones are wonderful, and the touch so light and quick that the most difficult piano pieces can be executed thereon without difficulty. It is a marvelous improvement upon the parlor organ, and has created a great sensa tion in musical circles. The price iB not very much higher than that of the ordinary organ. This delightful instrument is for sale only at BARTLETTS' MUSIC HOUSE. 103 NORTH SPRING ST. 2-M lm —3j—WK TREAT SUCCESSFUI.I.Y—£ // == ** > ° !!s \ *'" Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Stricture, Piles, / / /rT> Chronic, Blood and Skin Diseases, Varicocele, Blad \ der, Diver, Throat and Lung Troubles, Seminal \ W W Emissions and all unnatural drains on the system; A Constipation, Nervous Debility, Lust Manhood and JfM »U disorders of the Genito-Urinary organs.

Once more the Wolverhampton mag istrates have adjourned the nearing of the case against Harry Moores, alias "Dr." Vint, tho mesmerist. Moores gave an exhibition in that town of his alleged powers of hypnotizing, but, according to the charge of the town clerk, who is conducting tho prosecution, the whole business was a fraud concocted between the accused and certain confederates. One of the hypnotist's subjects deposed that he went every night and received payment for his performances. A jour nalist who was present deposed that he saw hypnotized persons lying on the floor who "winked at each other," and a police constable stated that when he proposed to stick a pin into one of these supposed uuconscious persons "to see if he was really in a mesmeric sleep," the operator threatened "to have him locked up." On the other hand, Dr. Vint's legal adviser proposed, by way of a practical test of his client's powers, to givo an ex hibition in court with one who had been mesmerized before. When this was de clined he offered then and there to mes-' merize the magistrate's clerk—a proposal which, though it caused laughter, ap pears to have been deemed equally unacceptable. The case is exciting much interest in the town on account of its novelty. The town clerk himself has observed that he did not know whether there had ever been a similar case in a court of justice, but Wolverhampton, he added, is noted for legal precedents. —London News. Fell Seventy-five Feet anil Lived. When the Owl train on the West Perm railroad left Blairsville Monday even ing Conductor Jim McNulty had among his passengers one Alfred Anderson, who lives near Social Hall bridge, about two and a half miles west of town. When nearing the flag station at the bridge Mr. Anderson ar6se from his seat, went to the platform of the car and stepped off before the train had come to a stop. The rear car had not fully cleared the bridge, and when An derson landed from the moving train he could not recover from the impetus given him and went over into the Cone maugh river below, dropping fully sev enty-rive feet. Fortunately for him the river at this point is deep, there being about fifteen feet of water. The trainmen and pas sengers were horrified. Conductor Mc- Nulty and Brakemen Kelley and Beat ty went back to look for him. Brake man Charley Beatty held his lantern aloft and called into the darkness below, not expecting to receive an answer. To the surprise of everybody present, An derson answered that he would be all right just as soon as he could swim out. He reached the shore and scrambled up the bank, none the worse except for a slight scratch on one of his wrists.—lndi ana Gazette. The Ice Men. The wholesale dealers in ice are again worried, as they have been off and on for the past ten years. Their experience of two years ago has taught them that if ice does not make in the Hudson by the Ist of January it is not likely to make at all during the season. The agents of these companies are scouring the entire country to the far north of New York and New England and have contracted for ice privileges on Sara toga, Lake Champlain and Lake George, and have been compelled to pay pretty stiff prices therefor. Meanwhile the making of artificial ice flourishes, and at the great hotels and offices of the railroad companies, which are beginning to use it, it is giving greater satisfaction than natural ice, partly because there is less wastage, partly because is comes in blocks of as certained weight and partly because it is made of distilled water. Some of the natural ice dealers are of the opinion that it will ultimately supplant natural ice harvesting, and it is sure to do so if the climatic change toward mildness of season is to be regarded as permanent. —New York Cor. Philadelphia Press, Methods of London Thieves. At the next assizes in London the trial of a new kind of thieves promises to be interesting. Their method was to visit unoccupied houses in the outskirts of the city in the daytime. They drove up in an elogant carriage, and when they found nobody at home the house was marked. In the night thoy came in a wagon, broke into the house and carted off their boitty. When it turned out that they were mistaken and that parties were in the house they simply offered to sell photographs and albums. One of the members rode a bicycle and took his notes of the houses that were good for robbing. Mr. and Mrs. Clarke were the leaders of the gang. They lived in one of the suburbs, were highly respected by all their neighbors and were exten sively invited to tea parties, dinners, etc. —London Letter. Use German. Family Soap. A Practical Joke. The British sense of humor frequently finds its expression in practical jokes, and the young "scion of the aristocracy" enjoys with artless glee a species of fun that an American would feel was adapt ed only for schoolboys. The following playful manifestation is reported from over the water as having recently oc curred in a well known country house. A pompous aud very dignified member of the government arrived at a friend's house w r nere he was due for a week's visit, and was met at the door by a tall footman whose familiar and impudent greeting immediately aroused tho ire of the old gentleman. He mentally re solved to report the fellow's insolence to his master. What was his surprise and horror, however, when the servant, assuming the attitude of a prize fighter about to begin operations, danced around him, intercepting his movements at every turn. "Is the man mad?" thought the startled statesman; "surely he has taken leave of his senses." In vain he spoke soothingly to the supposed maniac; the creature, who was of huge proportions, circled threateningly around him, and it was only after a few minutes of really uncomfortable anxiety that the indig nant guest found himself the victim of a little practical joke on the part of the eldest son of his host. —New York Trib une. n?

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes, and is one of the most common of the pulmonary affections. Chronic bronchitis more often appears later in life. When a cold settles on the lnngs the disease either ends in bronchitis or pneumonia. If it ends in bronchitis it usually passes off as a cold on the chest, and still the patient does not feel entirely well. He feels tired and languid, and is incapable of taking his usual amount of exercise, and experiences a shortness of breath with more or less warmth in the palms of the hands. Soon after this a cough appears, ac companied by an expectoration of thick rau cous, followed by a hectic flush, loss of flesh and strength, and night sweats continue, when the patient assumes all the appearance of hav ing a genuine case of consumption. But this is simply catarrh of the lungs or chronic bron chitis. The patient usually dies from exhaustion and suffocation, being unable to expectorate the mucous which accumulates in the passage leading to the lungs, which in some cases is sticky and small in quantity, but more com monly copious, of a light straw or yellowish green. Dry Bronchitis—This disease, the very oppo site of the above, is a very common affection. Very many people, who regard themselves as quite healthy, are today under its influence, and are slowly but surely becoming the vic tims of this treacherous complaint. This is the most insidious of all pulmonary diseases. There may at first be a slight, hacking cough and an expectoration of a bluish white mu cous. And herein lies the danger. This mu cous, inhabiting the air cells of the lungs, be ing difficult to raise, after a time becomes solid ified, permanently obstructing portions of the lungs, causing shortness of breath and a feeling of oppression on the chest, particularly after meals or on slight exertion. After a time the cough becomes more severe and comes on in paroxysms, and as the shortness of breath in creases it almost assnmes the character of asth ma. The mucous membrane also becomes ra ore and more thickened,which arises from the frequent fresh colds, and the patient at last becomes fully aware of the terrible changes that have taken place and the inevitable results that are to follow. Without courage and perseverance nothing is curable, but with these, aided with our Medi cated Inhalations and Compound Oxygen Treatment Bronchitis can be cured even after the lungs are extensively diseased.

The past week has brought us lots of new goods in every department of the house. Supe rior classes of mercuandise which we have only handlid in small quantities we have elaborated on in every detail. Our experience with the better class of goods in the paßt six months has been so complimentary that we have been induced to go into it to its fullest extent. As out ratio of profit is uniform, you will find all classej of goods sold in like pro portion. As far as price iB concerned, you will always find ub under any house in town, and if, perchance, it should happen that we are not, we will consider it a kindness to be in formed by our patrons, and will make our prices even lower than any quotation men tioned. Those of our patrons who remember our domestic department in the center aisle of our store, and the difficulty experienced in reaching these counters, owing to the large number of purchasers to be served and tbe limited space, will find more accommodation and a larger stock in new quarters, formerly occupied by our dress goods department. It is the height of our ambition, now that tbe dress goods and silk stocks are moved to the center aisles, to line these counters with as eager and expectant patrons purchasing silks and dress goods as were formerly wont to occupy the same space buying cotton fabrics. It requires time, but with the inducements that we hold out it must eventually come. We shall offer a line of 40 inch plaid wool dress goods in gray effects; you will find them to be the cheapest ineicbandise ever sold by any establishment in the known world; mind the width, one yard and a quarter, and the price will be 250 This is an item that should call out every lady in I.os Angeles that has any wants in the way of good dress goods for 250 per yard; as we are desirous of having this go as far as pos sible, and only having a limited quantity, we must resirlct the purchase to eight yards for any one purchaser. The next Inducement to visit our stores rarly Monday morning off red by the drefs goods de partment is a line of 40 inch all wool, solid s ilk finished henriettas and serges, the value of which ranged from $1.25 to $1.50 per yard; these goods could not be imported lor $1 per yard. Owing to the limited quantity we have of them, and wishing them to go as far as possible, we must restrict the purchase to 10 yards for any single person. Price, 7K _ a «•*<_; Considering the quality of these goods, and they a so come in back, we must say tbat at 75c per yard they are even a greater value than the first item at 25c. You all know what the French ad wool chal lie is, and you know the price is just as staple as it is on calico; thtre iB less money in band ling these goods at the regular prices of b'sc and 75c per yard than there is in selling cot ton flannel; we will place them on sale Mon day at 490 We will call your attention to the fact that the colored dress goods which we had on sale during the past week will remain so during tho present one, and those who were unable to get to town owing to the inclement weather have an opportunity to avail themselveß of this offer. In black dress goods there is not a house in the state of California that can show you the quality for the money that we quote. We com mence our line at 15c for half wool serges and henriettas. At 35c you buy a French imported cashmere or serge, 30 to 40 Inches wide, all wool: we could not land these goods for 40c in New York. At 50c you are buying a quality that we always got 75c for. At 75c we sell you, the line that we always got 98c for. and item braces all wool serges, henriettas, fancy novel ty black goods, silt: fancy drop d'alma. We tell you the truth when we say these goods can never be replaced for the money we are selling them at. For 98c we are selling you our $1.50 quality of black silk warp henrletta, our black silk warp glorias, our silk finish fancy serges and henriettas, 46 inches wide. At 85c we sell you a line of fancy novelty dress goods, 42 inches wide; arrived yes terday, are the very newest creations«nd under other circumstances we could not offer to sell them under $1 25 per yard. In colored and figured India silks we are sell ing a Hue of 24 inch at 45c. We do not want to confuse these goods with the quality that is being sold at 37% c, and which will not hold a thread. The latter iB the cheapest made. We won't have it in our house. In purchasing ■ilks. no matter whether tbey are ours or oth ers, always try the strength of the material, and you will find these cheap silks are nothing but tissue paper. The silk we offer you is a grade that was sold at 65c, and we warrant these goods to give wear and satisfaction. In selling our silks, dress goods or any fabric in the house we do so with an Implied guarantee that tbey will give wear and satisfaction to the purchaser, otherwise we stand ready at any time to make it good. At 74c and 85c we sell you some of the hand somest printed India silks that you have ever seen, and certainly the best value for the money ever offered in Los Angeleß. At 98c a line of sublime printed India silks. We have heretofore declined to sell them at $1.24 because actual comparison with any thing in this town has proven them to be 25c per yard cheaper than the closest competition; a number of patrons inform us tbat they can buy a similar qualtity at the same price; to be lower than the lowest we have marked them at 980 We would advise our friends that at 98c this is the cheapest piece of Bilk we have in our stock. We are offering specially a line of col ored surahs of sublime quality at 50c per yard. We have all the new shades, and tell you candidly that we cannot replace them when these are gone under 75c per yard. Our special sale on black dress silks, all dif ferent weaves, at 75 cents will continue during the week as long as we have the goods. We can emphasize the fact that there never has at any time, in the mercantile history of this town, at any sale, for any cause, under any circumstances, been merchandise, such as we have mentioned above, quoted at these prices. In our wash fabric stock you will find the newest things, new materials created. this sea son, new designs printed and woven, cotton Bedford cords copied from the finest imported wool materials with the handsomest printed designs. We are offering these goods, and they should command 25c per yard, at 150 A line of handsome printed cotton Chevrons. These are also imitations of the fine French dress goodß. When made up it would be a uliffi cult matter to tell the difference between them and a fine all wool dress goods, Thiglliie should command 25c per yard and we have marked them to sell at 100 Some very handsome styles ia fine French Sateens, as well as new material called wash, ■silk. When mode up it requires an expert to discern the difference between this material and the real silk. These goods ought never to leave the store, even at a special sale, under 25c, but they, will be sold if you come early Monday morning at 15c. A line of black satin striped cotton dress goods. A most handsome material. One you cannot icsißt purchasing if you want anything in black cotton material. These goods would be low priced at 40c. We will let them go at 250 In oar dress gingham department we are showing a line of newest spring creations that were purchased by us to sell at 12% c, and not intended to be opened until the middls- of March; but, to illustrate to you how cheap we can sell goods, they will be on sale at B*o A new line of shirtings, the finest material that we have ever laid upon onr counter, and you know that we have shown some fine shirt ing effects; but we have never had any to equal these at double the price. They come in light, A. HAMBURGER I SONS medium aud dark colors, the designs being dif ferent from any heretofore shown. The price will be lOc and 150 A line of choice printed new effects called mousselino d'Chantllly. This is solid ground with exquisite printings, comes in all new colors and Is about Bame width as a gingham. Ouodß that were purchased to sell at 1214 c per yard, and you will recognize it to be about the cheapest cloth for the quality you ever pur chased. 6*o We are headquarters for bleached and brown muslins, Canton flannels, apron checks, ging hams, etc., selling thtm at retail at the same price we do at wholesale. The items we have quoted in the two fore going clasees, being the principal ones in our stores, will, if you have any interest, bring you in for inspection. When you are here, walk around the store and see what inducement low prices will cause you to invest. As you walk down the aisle on the left-haud side, our ribbon stock first claims your notice. You will and all silk ribbons, iv gros grains with satin edge, the new effects in watered, some hand some novelty ribbons for millinery purposes and fancy work. A lit le further on you come to our stock of veilings aud laces The most immense variety of each and the prices at which we sell them will impress you. Most merchants get even on notions and laces on the shortcomings of their other stockß. Ours is sold a* close aB domes tics. Here we are showing all the new things in cotton and silk.

All sorts of materials both cotton and woolen are to be trimmed and garnished with laces. Our trim ming department this season will be the largest, handsomest and moßt complete that we have ever shown. On the opposite side you will find our drug department, where we sell all sorts of perfum ery, powders, patent medicines, in short, every thing that is kept in a drug store not necessary to the compounding of prescriptions at cut prices. The fact that we have declined to bo dictated to at what prices we shall sell these goods has caused us trouble in procuring them at all times. Still we have a full line of every thing iv stock today and sell them at our famous cut prices. Next you go to our hosiery department. Here you can find anything in silk, lisle, cotton or wool. We are selling aline of seamless fast black warranted hose at 13c a pair, thej ordiDariiy sell at 25c.
