BARNES IS DONE. THE OISEBIL WILL NOT HKLP RATIFY. Bis Reward for Working for the Re publican Fartj for Twenty five Yeara. Still another letter from Gen. W. H. L. Barnes has caused a mild sensation. His latest was addressed to tbe Repub lican state central committee and is being carefully concealed by the few members who have read it, for its con tents displeased them greatly. The letter was written in response to an invitation to speak at a ratification meeting in San Francisco when the Min neapolis convention should select a presidential nominee. General Barnes baa always been one of the speakers upon such occasions, and, in fact, has, always been looked upon as an old stand-by of the Btate central committee. That is why the committee was ro much put out when it received a forcible yet polite* notice in which the general de clined to take part in tbe celebration. The letter is addressed to Judge Fitz gerald, chairman of the state central committee, who, by the way, is a law partner of M. M. Estee, for whom Gen eral Barnes haa had a dislike ever since the Stockton convention. The San Fran cisco Report makes the following state ment about the matter in its issue of Friday: "I have received your kind invitation to orate at the meeting in ratification of the great (as yet) unknown," cays the letter, "but would inform you that the state of my health Is such that I must decline to orate. I might add tbat as my disease is chronic it will be useless for your committee to look for a change or urge me to reconsider my decision. I am done with your committee's political affaira for good," etc. The letter shows plainly the general's anger, and how bitter he feels toward the g. o. p.'s lead ers in this Btate, with whom he used to be so friendly and popular. The communication was such a sur prise and shock to tbe committee that when Judge Fitzgerald met General Barnes on the street this morning he mentioned the subject. "Do you see those gray hairs?" re plied the general. "Well, they have turned gray in the service of the Re publican party, and what have I got for it? Nothing. I meant what I said in that letter, and want nothing more to do with politics." A reporter who had heard of the let ter, asked Judge Fitzgerald, Secretary Bassett and Assistant Secretary Step pacher for it today, but they would not show it. They were quite anxious to keep its contents eecret. General Barnes himself would not give out a copy either, saying tbat the letter was tbe committee's property, and that the officers should furnish it to the pub lic if it were wanted. "I*ll never speak for them again," said the general, forcibly. "I have worked for the Republican party for twenty-five years and never asked them for anything. Yet when I took it into my head that I would like to go to the national convention at Minneapolis a who'e pack of dirty dogs had to jump out and bite at me. They assailed me at the state convention, and by foul means worked against my interests. They wouldn't let me go to Minneapolis just because they got it into their heads that I wanted to get the nomination for United States senator. Why, I wouldn't take the office if it were done up in a nice little package and placed here on my desk. Just trie same I'll get even with them. I've spoken at all their meetings and always been ready to work for the party. No more such political speaking for me. Hereafter 1 will work for Barnes and his business, and not for politicians."

HE LIKES THE PLACE. A CANADIAN'S OPINION OF LOS ANGELES, The More Ha Sees of the Olty the More He Likes It—Catalina He Finds Charming. Mr. J. Hargraft, ex-member of the Canadian parliament, recently visited this city, and wrote S3 follows to his home paper, the Colony World: After putting in a very interesting week in Nevada I left for this city (Los Angeles,) my brother in law and bis wife coming with me for a trip, as they had never visited Southern California before. Leaving "Virginia City at night, we arrived in Sacramento in the morn ing. There we had a three-hours' wait, and after having breakfast we drove around the city and visited the capitol— a very beautiful building, full of inter esting things. We enjoyed our drive very much, seeing so many pretty places and each lovely flowers, after leaving rocks where one never sees even a blade rtf grass. We reached here, the City of the Angels—as some call it the City of the Lost Angels—the following morning, after a ride through the most beautiful country I ever saw—through fields of golden poppies and other splen did wild flowers aud fields of grain, barley and wheat, so luxuriant in growth that you could not see the fences. I was surprised to Bee them cutting barley here. But I am con vinced that this is surely the City of the Angels the longer I stay in it, and the more I see of it the bettor I like it; in fact, it seems so charming that I think I would not like to live elsewhere. Flowers here grow like weeds in Ontario. I have seen cottages here covered with roeeß in bloom. They make hedges of calla lilies, and other flowers, such aa geraniums and heliotrope, grow over the fences and into regular bushes. Then the tulip and magnolia trees are simply superb. As for fruit, the air is fragrant with tbe perfume of orange blossoms. We can buy fine orunges here for 5c per dozen. Cherries are immense; I never saw anything like them. Lemons, figs, apricots and peaches, in fact, all kinds of fruit :n c abundant. People here get new vegetables all the year round. I have done considerable sightseeing sinc9 I arrived—spending a day each at Pasadena, Long Beach and Redondo Beach; but the resort I fancy most is Catalina Island, where I spent Sunday last with a party including Mr. and Mre. R. B. Williamson and our old frieDd Hi, and a most enjoyable time we had together. The island is situated about twenty-five miles from San Pedro. We left here Saturday afternoon and got back Monday morning. They claim that it is the best fishing ground in the world, but of course, being Sunday, I did not catch any. I inits one thing here, and tbat is good fresh cold spring water. Having little or no frost here the water is carried in pipes almost above ground and it gets pretty warm. Then they have to manufacture the ice and it comes high, but one can put up with a little inconvenience like tbat, when everything else is near perfection. We have had three warm days since I came here, the thermometer indicating between 90 and 100 degrees in the shade, but early in the aiternoon we get the sea breeze and at night I find I have to wear nn overcoat. The nights here right through the summer are always cool, and no matter how hot the sun gets, such a thing as sunstroke is unknown. We had some rain the day I got here and they tell me that in all probability it will not. rain again till September or October. Such a thing as thunder and lightning ie not known here at all, but sometimes we hear it in the distance over the mountains to the eastward. For inward or outward applications use Lightulng Fluid.
