AT CAMP BANNING.
The Whittier Cadets Having a Very
Pleasant Time.
Camp Banning, Catalina, Sept. 8. —In-
stead of tbe Linda bringing tbe visitors
from Avalon yesterday, tbe launch Mas
cot performed tbat duty.
As the season over bere is so near at
an end, one would naturally think that
the crowds would decrease. If one had
been in camp yesterday he would think
just the opposite, as the crowds in camp
are increasing daily.

quarters of a mile off shore last evening.

party of excursionists up to tbe isthmus
yesterday, passing by camp on her re
turn trip at about 5:30 p. m.
Mr. Sherman Wiggins took a moon
light sail up to Avalon last night.
Moonlight sails seem to be the fad
among the many different officers in
camp, as bardly a nigbt passes without
seeing several of them out sailing.
There is still a great deal of talk on the
proposed boat race between George Jack
son and Joe Betancue, and Thomas Mc-
Cartney and tliram Saunders. Although
the former bave the call among the ma
> jority of the camp, the latter have a
good many staunch supporters. The
race ie to be a handicap. Jackson and
Betancue give their competitors 100
yards in a half mile turn.
Captain Clark and a number of the
boys took a sail up to Avalon and re
turned this morning.
There ie plenty of freeh muttou sent
up from Avalon for the camp daily.
In the proposed boat race, tbe super
intendent is among tbe many admirers
of Saunders and McCartney. He says
he is sorry it wae ever mentioned, aa
Jackson and Betancue will feel "gloomy"
after the race is over.
A large number of ladies and gentle
men viewed the dress parade and bat
talion drill from headquarters yesterday.

the drilling he had ever seen.

has been rusticating at Avalon for the
past nine weeks, was among tbe many
visitors in camp yesterday from the
eteam yacht Hattie.

SANTA ANA NEWS.
THE DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CONVEN-
TION TO MEET TODAY.
Promises That It Will Be a Harmonious
Uathr ring—The Excursion to New
port — Interesting Santa
Ana Brevities.
The Democratic county convention
will meet today in Spurgeon's hall, for
the nomination of a county ticket and
the eelection of an assemblyman and a
county central committee. Every indi
cation now pointe to a harmonious gath
ering.
Probably the only fight before the
convention will be that of sheriff. Theo
dore Lacy, the present incumbent, and
William Beseonnett an old-time resi
dent, who would like to be sheriff, are
both working hard for the nomination,
and, as both have a strong following, it
is hard to predict the winner. There is,
however, one thing certain, and that is,
that either man can defeat the Repub
lican nominee—Fred C. Smythe.
The Democratic party of Orange
county is well organized, and, as a
strong ticket will be put in the field,
today everything looks favorable to its
election.
Despite the fact that Republican lead
ers bere wear a broad smile, and tell you
that they think they have placed a
Btrong ticket in the field, they feel, away
down deep in tbeir hearts, that the
Union League got sat down on pretty
hard in the convention of a week ago.
Anaheim and Tustin got the beet offices,
and Santa Ana and the Union League
got tbe cullinge. Now and then a good
member of tbe g. o. p. may be found
who will come right out and openly say
that the "hay seed districts got the per
simmons, and that Santa Ana got the
windfalls."
The cold water people, too, hold their
convention today, and intend to place a
full county ticket in the field. Tbe
Prohibitionists in this county are quite
numerous, and they claim a goodly
number of followers for Bidwell and for
their principles. As a Democrat rarely,
if ever, becomes a Prohibitionist, tbeir
atrength ia drawn mainly from the party
of paat records.
The political party has commenced to
boil in Orartee county, and with Dem
ocratic, Republican, Prohibition and
People's party tickets in tbe field, the
campaign will be a liveiy one.
ADMISSION DAY OBSERVANCE.
. An excursion to Newport beacb, un
der the auspices of the Veterans' Asso
ciation of Orange county, was held yes
terday in commemoration of tbe ad
mieeion of California into the union.
About four hundred Santa Anane

and took a run down to the beach, en
joying the freeh ocean breezes and a
dip in the ocean there in the forenoon,
and in the afternoon listening to the
following programme: Music, by Holt's
martial band; address of welcome, by
Judge Towner; music, by Holt'e martial
band; oration, by J. S. Pitman. After
these exercises had been completed,
dancing was inaugurated, and those as
sembled tripped the light fantastic to
their heart's content. The day was
most pleasantly spent, and all who at
tended enjoyed a fine time.
SANTA ANA BREVITIES,
The agricultural society and Santa Ana
board of trade hold meetings today.

take advantage of tbe excursion rates

of thought. This doctor was more considerate
of his patent's health than of his financial cir
cumstances. He ought to hove advised him to

Davy's Researches.
Sir Humphry Davy was so much in
terested in electricity that he made
many experiments which have become
historical in their utility. His brilliant
discoveries so excited him that he could
with difficulty leave them for needed
repose. Ho would have killed himself
by hia constant experiments and steady
application to the science had he not
become prostrated and his life endan
gered thereby. His remarkable experi
ments, brilliant and triumphant, are yet
to be outdone by more modern philoso
phers. Sir Humphry Davy's great bat
tery, composed of 2,000 cells, became
world wide and historically honored. It
was the origin of the first flashes of what
is now termed the electric arc. That
was eighty years ago, and note the grand
discoveries since then:
Tho idea of two pieces of charcoal, one
about an inch long and ono less than a
sixteenth part of an inch in diameter,
being brought near to each other, till
they produce a bright spark, for so they
did. One part of the coal was imme
diately ignited to a whiteness, and by
removing them apart Davy found a con
stant discharge of electricity took place
sufficiently strong to heat the air in a
given space three times their size. He
caught the idea in a moment and studied
out the mystery which the two pieces of
coal had produced, a grand scheme
and discovery. He saw the most bril
liant ascending light, like a glowing
arch, broad and perfectly conical in the
middle.
The philosopher experimented to his
heart's content, each day bringing forth
new discoveries, and there is now no
higher scientific name known to men or
more honored for his great works and
discoveries than Davy, who, like Frank
lin, lived in his scientific experiments
and for humanity.
He, too, saw glorious discoveries to be
made, and hoped to live to witness the
result of many of his own discoveries.—
New York Telegram.
Strange Indian Heads.
Among the Indians of North America
many strange beliefs are held respecting
demon heads that wander about, some
times harmlessly and at other times for
malignant purposes. Some of them are
of gigantic size, with wings, while oth
ers have faces of fire.
There used to be a society among the
the Iroquois organized for the purpose
of propitiating these extraordinary ter
rors. The latter, according to popular
conception, most commonly moved about
from tree to tree in solitary places,
where they were apt to be encountered,
much to the discomfort of hunters and
women who chanced to be alone in the
forest. Few things can be imagined
more disagreeable than to meet unex
pectedly in the woods a great head six
feet high, without legs, arms or body.
Occasionally these remarkable crea
tures would talk, but it was chiefly at
night that they had a fiery aspect, their
favorite nocturnal haunts being marshes
and pools. Members of the exercising
society wore masks in imitation of the
heads when they performed ceremonies
for the purposo of driving such demons
away. Of courso the fire faces were
invented to account for the jack-o'-lan
terns or "ignesfatui" which haunt moist
places.—Washington Star. .

THE FEDERAL COURTS.
WONG WO ON TBI At FOB NOT CAN
CELLING OPIUM STAMPS.
He Plead* Ignorance of the Law—The
Jury still Out—A Schooner
Steward's Predica
ment.
In the United States district court
yesterday Wong Wo was tried upon the
charge of having some twenty-eight
empty opium hoses in his possession,
without having destroyed the govern
ment stamps upon them. The defend
ant lives in this city, and as a defense
pleaded ignorance of the law.
The taking of testimony occupied the
morning session. It was proved that
the Chinaman had the boxes in his pos
session, and that they were in the con
dition alleged in tbe complaint. He
said tbat he thought when he opened
tbe boxes, that waa all that was neces
sary.
Revenue Collector Maxwell testified
that he informed the Chinaman, three
months before, that the stamps must be
destroyed, and illustrated tbe manner
in which it should be done. He alao
aaid that while the defendant said he
could not talk English, there were sev
eral Chinamen around at the time who
could, and that he believed tbey in
formed Wong Wo. The jury was out all
the afternoon, and could not agree upon
a verdict. At a late hour tbey had not
yet determined upon a verdict.
An examination was held before
United States Commissioner Van Dyke,
yesterday, of Charles P. Brandt,
steward of the schooner Glendale, which
recently arrived from Honolulu with
8000 cigars and 16 casea of gin aboard,
and in his possession.
Collector Osborne testified that the
defendant told him that he got tbe
cigara and gin in Honolulu, and brought
them to this country. The examination
was only partially held, and was contin
ued until today at 2 o'clock.
Azusa Lime.
W. H. Adams, who owps the only
fluorspar mine in the United States, lo
cated just above Azusa, has made an
other peculiar find. It is no less than a
large quantity of nearly pure lime,
which he saya would take but a slight
burning to convert into a first-class mer
chantable article. Tbe treasure in our
hills seem to be not half diecovered.
When They Became Acquainted.
"I knew that woman when she lived
in an attic." "Yes, I can remember
that time perfectly. It was when you
were living in the basement of the same
house." Then there was a silence, and
the waves gossiping to tho beach had it
all to themselves.—Boston Saturday
Gazette.
A Sensitive Family.
July 16, 1876, Jean Lafargue, his wife
and a daughter nineteen yeara of age
committed suicide by hanging them
selves in the dining room, all because a
neighbor had accused them of stealing
vegetables from her garden. This at
