THE CHAIN GANG.
City Attorney McFarland yesterday
gave an opinion to the city council as to
whether the park commissioners have
exclusive control over the city prisoners
commonly known as the chain gang.
The Whitney act providing for police
courts and the city ordinances are cited
in relation to working prisoners in the
city. The ordinance says the prisoners
shall work under the direction of the
chain gang overeeer and do such Work
as the superintendent of streets may
designate. The act creating the board
of park commissioners provides that on
request of the board prisoners over 21
years of age sentenced to hard labor in
any of the jails, prisons, houses of cor
rection, work-houses, etc., of the city or
city and county, may be put to work in
parks and grounds under control of the
board. The city attorney holds that
"may" should not be construed as
mandatory, and from the language
of the act it was not intended by
the legislature that the act creating the
park commissioners should supercede
the Whitney act. "And even if this
were true," says the city attorney, "it
will be observed that the Whitney act
provides: 'That persons convicted in the
police courts may be required by ordi
nance to labor in the city;'leaving it
discretionary as to whet tier the labor
should be required in tbe jail or any
where within thelimitsof the city, while
the language of the act creating the park
commissioners provides that 'Only pris
oners who have been sentenced to hard
labor in the jails, prisons, etc., may be
required to work upon the parks and
grounds.'
"The first ordinance which I have
cited requires the city prisoners to per
form work on the public works or ways
of the city, and not in jail; and as it
also provides that thiß labor shall be
performed at such places as may be des
ignated by the superintendent of streets,
I am of opinion tbat the chaingang, as
now constituted, should be controlled
and directed by the superintendent of
streets."
Seventy-I'ive Convulsions.
A Thrilling. Experiencb —There Is no one

that stands out prominently beyond all others.
Such is the case of John B. Collins of Romeo,
Mich., who says: "From September to Jan

OVER A BILL OF SALE.
A Chinese Discussion Which Does Not
Mean a Klot.
Leading Celestials deny tbe report
that another highbinder war was on tbe
tapis in Chinatown. No such move
ment is or has been begun, they claim,
and they are very indignant over the re
port in consequence. That there has
been some contentions among certain
mongolians is not denied, but it wae
wholly owing to misunderstandings as
to the transfer of certain real estate.
On December 17th last, Tom Ning
Sang Bold to Dr. Quong Jake Hong an
undivided one-eighth interest in a cer
tain brick block of eight numbers on
Marchessault street east from Alameda,
and occupied by the Wing On company.
The transfer was made in the form of a
bill of sale, instead of a deed. The pur
chaser demanded a warranty and
failing, offered to compromise on a quit
claim, but a notary public, an American,
to rhom the matter was referred, de
clared the bill of sale valid inasmuch
as it was attested to by reliable parties
and placed on record regularly with the
county recorder.
WEALTH UNDER WATER.
SANTA MONICA BAT AND HSR
PISCATORIAL PRODUCTS.
Why Cannot Some Movement Be Made
Towards Establishing Canneries at
San Pedro, Ballona, Bedondo
and Santa Monloa?
The mackerel fisheries of the Atlantic
seaboard extend from the George's
banks, oil tbe coast of Newfoundland, to
the capes of Virginia, but the fishing
season begins in April and ceases in
September, from which time around to
the next spring the fishermen devote
their time to cod, halibut and haddock.
The loss of life on the banks of New
foundland, every year, is something
frightful; and yet the fisherman's boy
stands on the hillside beside his wid
owed mother and longs for the day to
come when he can go out as a sailor in a
fishing vessel and tempt the same fate
which overtook his father. The hardy
New Englanders make good settlers in
any new land, because they are not only
brave and industrious, but thrifty and
economical as well. In our anxiety to
settle up this country we have paid too
much attention to tbe people in Kansas,
Nebraska and Minnesota, and have
overlooked the sturdy men of Noank,
Marblehead and Gloucester.
Our mackerel fisheries will not com
pare with those of the Atlantic for size
or fish, but there is no end to the num
bers of them, and that is the greater de
sideratum after all. In the eastern
fisheries the largest mackerel are c or ted
out and put up in kits with brine,
marked No. 1. Then comes a second
size, also put in kits and marked No. 2.
The third size is put up in small kegs,
with a mixture of vinegar, onions, bay
leaves, Bait and peppercorns, wbiie a
fourth is canned in tin cans holding two
pounds each and seasoned with tomato
sauce. Every grocery store in Los An
geles has the kits and the cans, but
there are few spiced ones to be had. In
the great fishing towns of France, such
as Concarneau, Nice and Trouville,
there are canneries where mackerel are
canned in oil just like sardines; and the
man who has once eaten mackerel put
up in this way, will never care to eat
sardines again,
At present the preserving of mackerel
in oil here is not to be thought of, be
cause the olive industry is too new and
the price of oil much too high. Ellwood
Cooper of Santa Barbara and Frank
Kimball of National City are selling
their oil at $15 per case for quarts, and
so much purer is their oil than the im
ported article that all tbe restaurants
are willing to pay the difference iv price
for tbe sake of getting an oil that does
not grow rancid. But other olive or
chards are coming in daily to swell tbe
product, aud prices must decline as
products increase. Whenever oil gets
down to about $1.50 per gallon, then it
will pay to use it for canning mackerel
and sardines; and then we may expect
to see canneries established at a dozen
points between here and San Francisco.
The very same capital which is em
ployed in the salmon canneries of Alaska
and Puget sound is ready to go into this
business whenever olive oil gets down
to such a figure that they can see their
way clear to use it. Five years hence
that will not be such a difficult matter,
for trees that now yield a quart of oil
will then be yielding two gallons; and
while the price is sure to be lesß than
now, the increase in the yield will more
than make up the difference.
One dozen smart and active New Eng
land fishermen on Santa Monica bay
would soon make a good showing for
themselves and their families. They
would erect tidy little cottages, sur
rounded by little gardens, and teach our
people how much could be achieved
with a very little money. They would
not lose a boat once in five years, and
yet they would have the whole range of
the great coast, from Port Hanford to
San Diego, in which to conduct their
operations. Ice is plenty, and just as
cheap as in New York or Boston. They
could Bhip their product to Fresno,
Tulare, Visalia, Bakersfield, Pomona,
Riverside and a dozen other inland
towns, and never lose the sale of a dol
lar's worth of fish in the course of a
year. The presence of such an element
in our midst would be a blessing. In
tbe next 50 years they would build up a
cordon of prosperous towns between San
Diego and San Francisco; and would
add a vast deal of capital to the material
wealth of the country.

THE GRAND JURY'S LEGALITY.
The Question Raised About
Wm. Paul's Indictment.
Mrs. Daisy Sibyl Mayne Secures Her
Divorce.
Adams Versus Barbank—Notes of Cases
Which n't i In the Courts Yes
terday—Now Suite Filed
Yesterday.
William Paul, against whom tbe coun
ty grand jury returned an indictment a
few days ago charging him with perjury
in connection with bis registration in
this county last fall, was in Judge
Smith's court yesterday morning, and
bis counsel, C. 0. Stephens, moved to
set aside the indictment.
The grounds upon which the motion
was made were, that the grand jury was
not legally constituted, in that when it
was impaneled the requieite number of
ballots were not drawn from the grand
jury box, nor were they drawn in ac
cordance with law; that no notice of tbe
drawing was given, and that it was not
had in the presence of tbe officers desig
nated by law. Also, that there existed
before tne present action of the indict
ment, a prejudice on the part of tbe
grand jurors against tbe defendant such
as to disqualify them from acting impar
tially ; that the grand jury bad had doc
umentary evidence before them before
this indictment was found, and by reas
on of it not one of them could act impar
tially and fairly.
After the motion had been presented to
tbe court by Mr. Stephens, he placed on
the witness stand A. E. Pomeroy, George
L. Arnold, J. A. Chanslor, S. B. Caswell
and A. B. Johnson, members of the
grand jury, and W. H. Crane, deputy
county clerk at tbe time the grand jury
was drawn. The grand jurors were ex
amined at some length upon the subject
of the finding of the indictment, and
Mr. Crane read from the minutes how
the original drawing of the jury had
been set aside by Judge Smith, when it
was found that tbe number of jurors
fixed by law had not been drawn.
At tbe afternoon session the points
advanced by Mr. Stephens were argued
by him and Deputy District Attorney
Dupuy, and tbe motion was submitted
upon briefs to be filed.
Mrs. Mayne Secures a Divorce.
Yeßterday afternoon a default divorce
case was tried before Judge Wade in
which Mrs. Daisy Sibyl Mayne charged
her husband, Fred Thomas Mayne,
with drunkenness and cruelty. She and
her brother, John Pearson, were the
only witnesses, and the decree was
granted by the court after a brief ex
amination. The case is a particularly
pathetic one. The husband, who baa
occupied positions of trust and responsi
bility, has gone down rapidly through
dissipation, and is now lying in tbe
county jail awaiting trial on the charge
of stealing a horse and buggy, which be
say-i he took in order to be sent to the
penitentiary out of revenge for the di
vorce proceedings brought by bis wife.
Adams vs. Burbank.
The second trial began before Judge
McKinley and a jury yesterday of the
case of J. S. Adams vs. David Durban k.
Mr. Adams built the Tally ho stables in
tbia city for Dr. Burbank, and there wae
a dispute as to the final settlement.
Adams sued for tbe balance due bim on
the contract, and secured a verdict for
$2200. The defendant applied for and
was granted a new trial. The amount
sued for by Mr. Adams is $4625.14. A

SANTIAGO TOWN HAS A SITE.
It Is in the Mountains Between
Acton and Summit.
How Confiding Ohicag'nana Have Been
Induced to Boy the Lots.
Secretary Perkins of the Board of Trade
Telia About the Whole Af
fair—Some Interesting;
Correspondence.
Secretary Perkins of the board of
trade was seen yesterday by a Herald
reporter and said:
In this morning's Herald I see a
copy of a letter addressed to the secre
tary of the chamber of commerce asking
for information regarding the town of
Santiago. I can throw some light upon
the subject, having had occasion to in
vestigate tbe same.
Some dayß ago I received the follow
ing communication:
Chicago, 111., Dec. 21. 1891,)
400 Superior street. J
To the Secretary of the Board of Trade, Los An
geles:
Dear Sir—l have several lots in the
town of Santiago, Los Angeles county,
California, which I took in trade here in
Chicago. I have written to several par
ties in Calitornia asking for some inform
ation about the above named town, and
have invariably received answers de
scribing the city of San Diego, every
street of which I know as well as I know
Chicago.
Will you please inform me as to
whether there is any such town in Lob
Angeles county or any other county, as
Santiago; if so, where is it and what is
its population.
I am an old Californian and am doing
all I can to further tbe interest of the
grand old elate in this section, and as
I have seen quite a number of these
Santiago lots floating about the market
here at $50 each I want to get definite
information as to their validity. If it
is merely a town ea paper and has no
existence in fact I want to know it, and
will take pains to let others know it, as
such schemes will do nothing but in
jury to any country. If there is such a
town, where am I to send my deeds for
recording?
By answering these questions, my
dear sir, you will confer a great favor
on, yours respectfully,
John McGrath.
The information I obtained is con
tained in my reply to Mr. McGrath,
which is as follows:
Los Angeles, Dec. 28,1892
John McGrath, esq., 403 Superior street, Chi.
cago. 111.:
Dear Sir: Your favor of tbe 21st
inst. came duly to band, and I have
been making inquiries in order to sat
isfactorily answer your questions.
Upon inquiring at the office of the
county assessor I find tbat Santiago is
in Lob Angelea county, between Acton
and Summit. The town is described as
follows ■ A subdivision of the SW W of
sec. 29, T 6 N, R 12 W, SBM. The whole
townsite is assessed to "unknown own
ers," as no one gave it in or any part
thereof. It is assessed in 36 blocks, at
$5 per block. There are probably 20 or
more lots in each block ; I cannot tell
how many, as the map could not be
found. As to population, it is evident
that it is only a "'site" for a town, the
whole being assessed as above stated.
If any one is living anywhere on the
site they are probably cultivating the
land as acreage, if it is possible of culti
vation.
If you deßire to record your deeds they
should, of course, be sent to the county
recorder of Los Angeles county, in this
city. You can judge as to whether it is
worth while or not.
Mr. Perkins has done good work in
investigating this matter.
A Little Girl's Experience in a Light

Mr. and Mrs. Loren Trescott are keepers of
the government lighthouse at Sand Beach,

Try One Ear and Tta
the Other end
Ascertain flow the Hearing of Ore Ear
Can Be Lost Imperceptibly
A Remarkable Fact Described fur the
Benefit Of Oar Readers.
This Is a remarkable fact. Haven't yon ob
served how many of yonr friends make yon
take the right or left hand side, as the case may
be, so that they can hear you?
What is the cause of It?
Catarrh!
The eustachian tubes are small tubes about
two Inches long, leading from the upp-r back
part of the throat to the middle ear. Their use
Is to permit the passage of air inside tbe drum
bead of the ear Every ordinary drum has a
small ho c in the birrel to admit the air 0.1 the
Inside. This is done to allow the pressure of
air to be equal on both sid j s of tbe drumhead,
and without it the drum would I) • worthless.
fo it Is with tbe middle ear; the pressure must
be equal on both s d> s, so that the drumhead
the tymranum) may be sensitive to
respond to the delicate vibrat ions of air, which,
when communicated to the bruin through tbe
auditory nerve, produce sound, if anything
happens to obstruct the eustachian tubes, hear
ing is very much impaired, if not entirely de
stroyed. This makes It plain how easily it is
for the catarrhal process to extend from the
nose to the throat and thence up the eustachian
tubes to the middle ear. The mucuous lining
of these little tubes becomes inflamed and
thickened, and the tubes wholly or partially
closed up, the equilibrium of air pressure is
disturbed and the roarlnv, buzzing, cracking
and hissing noises, so annoying to thousands of
catairhalsubjects, follow, accompanied nearly
alwAss by dull' ess or entire loss of hoarlntr.
If the disease is permuted to run on unchecked
the small bones of the ear will be destroyed
and tho drum attacked, perforated aud de
stroyed and total deafnees will follow.
The Doctors of the German and English staff
have unqualified success in the treatment of
these cbbcs. Their methods arc the result of
man" years of study and practice and have
been demonstrated to be the most successful In
use at the present time.
