C^emurrers to His Petition of Interven ,'tion in the Green Bankruptcy Over iJ ruled by Judge. 1 (Nonpareil, July 7.) Judge Smith Mt-Pherson yesterday overruled the demurrers filed by the creditors of II. S, Green, president of the Dow City and. Buck Grove banks, and the leading member of the Green Cattle Co., the petition of intervention of William Arnd, trustee in bankrupt cy therefore standing. The arguments were held at tha special session of the federal court here yesterday. It was claimed by Mr. Arnd that Green had conveyed to a number of his creditors various amounts in notes, and he filed a petition of intervention to have them returned to the assets. The overruling of the demurrers does not jJroyide for the return of the notes, but opens the way for the question to be gone into further. The matter was re ferred to W. S. Mayne, who was in structed to report his findings August 15. Th-. creditors who filed dumurrers are as follows: Bank of Denison. Thompson Tipton, Chicago: Des Moines State Saving bank Smith Carey ifc Co., Chicago: Central Trust Co., Chieago: State Bank, Chicago Century Trust Co., Des Moines Merchants National bank, Omaha.

HONORS DEPARTING PASTOR. Members of St. Patrick's Parish of Dunlap Give Reception to Father Whitd Who Removes. We have been requested to reprint the following article relative to Rev Father White, of Dunlap. The article appeared in the Nonpareil of July the 5 Father White had many admirers in Crawford County who regret exceed ingly to hear he is to leave Dunlap. "A few day ago the members of the St. Patricks parish held a reception for their pastor, R^v. J. C. White, who left the following Thurs day for Avoca, his new field of labor. The reception was held at the parson age and was attended by fully 500 people who came to pay their respects and bid a God-speed to their priest, the citizen and friend. The occasion brought together many of the representative people of Harri son and adjoining counties, irrespective of creed. A bevy of ladies, with deft and artistic fingers, converted the parsonage into a veritable tropical garden. During the evening there were recitations, vocal and instrumental music and addresses. The occasion brought out many testi monials of the esteem in which Father White is held by all classes of the com munity. The Rev. Ewart Kent, pastor of the Congregational church and just home from the international Sunday school convention at Jerusalem, was present and paid a heartfelt and touch ing tribute to the departing parstor as a man and citizen Before coming to Dunlap Rev. Kent had labored In the same territory as Father White and told of bis influence and triumph over evil in high places, even to the unseat ing of a prominent but unjust official. Perhaps the most impressive feature oi the evening was carried out by the youngest members of the Sunday school. A little tot told in childish language the love of the little ones and their sorrow at parting with their be loved pastor and presented him with a sheathe of American beauty roses, quite as large as herself. This tribute from the little ones effected him deeply and brought a response never to be forgotten. There were a large number fi-om the Scared Heart parish, Woodbine, pres ent to bid him a reluctant farewell. It is due to his influence and personal effort that they worship in one of the prettiest churches in the state. When Father White came to Dunlap from Williamsburg eight years ago he found the parish sadly in need of a strong hand and unerring judgment. He paid debts of long standing and made extentive improvements on the church property, but his work was not finished. One project which lay close to his heart was the raopening of the paroch ial school which was to be free to all. The money was pledged for tbir pur pose and the school was to be opened in September. Father White is a brilliantand force ful speaker, a leader in the cause of temperance and good citizenship and every movement for the betterment of society received his hearty aporova and support. He was the recipient of many hand some presents including a set of rare books. The Knights of Columbus pres ented him with an elegant gold-headed cane, the ladies of the parish gave htm a linrary desk, the young people gave a box of altar linens, an ink well, gold pen and other useful articles. Light refreshments were served throughout the evening. THE GOLDEN STATE Interesting Letter on California Written by Rev Morgan. VJSITS MANY PLACES OF NOTE Los Angeles, the Most Important City of Its Size, in The Country. Perfect Climate, Beautiful Scenery. In this letter I shall not attempt to describe those things which are gener ally known but [give only a brief California is certainly a great state It has every variety of climate, varying with the locality. No one can fail to find the climate to suit him, he may go to his desired climate, while in the east., one must wait for the climate come to him. Good weather, all th time, in abundance is the boast of Cali fornia. But what do they raise ii California? I presume that no state 01 territory in the Union raises as grea variety of valuable products as Cali fornia. In this land of eternal summit both the temperate and -semi tropical products are raised. The principlt fruit crop raised in profusion and per fection are the orange, lemon, grape, prune., .peach, appricot, cherry, pear, strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, logooberry, nectarine, pinapple,. fig*, olives, apples, plums, grapefruit, guavn currents., loquots, and in eome locali ties tne banana. The Eoglish walnu is the easiest raised and one of the most profitable crop in California. The orchards are not generally small as they are in the East but are usually very large. It is a common thing to see hundreds of acres, in one orchard. But fruit and nuts are not the onlj thine raised extensively In California. All varieties of« garden products grow the year round. Ths gardens are generally very extensive. We have often seen over 600 acres in one field of white beans and over 1000 acres in one field of sugar beets. It it not uncom mon tu see over 100 acres in one field of celery. The alfalfa 19 the princi ple hay crop, oats, barley and corn are raised, but the wheat crop is enormous the quality being first grade and it if shipped to all parts of the world. The ornamental trees such as the fan palm, the date palm, the pepper tree, eucalyptus, the banana, the sycamore, the live oak, the grevilla and yucca palm line the walks, streets and boule vards. But that for which California is famous is the perfect profusion oi the choicest of flowers. Twelve month? in the year western California olessed with all variety^of fljwers, the choicest and most numerous of which are the rose and calla-lilly. I shall now give a brief account of some of the important places of inter est that we had the pleasure of visit ing. It was a wonderful inspiration to attend the General JConference. To look over that great audience of about 6000 people from all over the United States, and at the large delegated body, the legislators of the Methodist Episcopal church, and from every country on earth, was a privilegel of a life time. The audience room was beautifully decorated, the music was such as only a great city would pro duce, and the lectures, sermons and addresses were the best that the great est protestant church on earth could give. One thing seemed to impress every one, how wonderfully has God prospered Methodism. Its an honor to be a member of such *a denomination. Through the generosity of the local churches, lemonade, oranges and flowers were served gratis, the entire month of May to all delegates and visit ors In the annex of the pavilllon in which the conference was held. It is estimated that over 20,000 visitors were attracted to Los Angeles by the General Conference. There is probably no American city of equal size that is so widely known throughout the United States, and even in foreign countries as Los Angeles. This is partly due, no doubt, to the perfect climate, beautiful scen ery, and persistent advertising, by the enterprising people of the city. The charms and attractions can only be known by seeing it. It has the best street car system and is the most brilliantly lighted of any city of its size in the United States if not in the world. It's a city of fine residences, many of which have large yards where neither money nor pains were spared to did nature in making it the most beautiful possible. In the land of eternal summer, the possibilities of producing a little paradise, is fully shown in their beautiful parks. There is no city that we have seen like Los Angeles. We took a number of side trips from Los Angeles. We first took the aide trip to Santa Monica where we had the pleasure of a sea bath in the surf. Hollywood, a suburban town to Los Augeles is one of the prettiest spots Southern in California. Every one is attracted by its charms. The Sunset bouiivard, ten miles In length, passing through this place, will soon be a close rival to the, fafnous Euclid JAvenue of Cleveland Ohio. We also visited the .' vv Vv^V3 des cription of a few of the principle points of interest that we had the pleasure of seeing. The Education and Social Economy Building of the Louisiana Purchase Ex position is of the Corinthian order of archi tecture It is situated to the left of the main lagoon, and this and the Electricity Building are the only two buildings facing the Grand Basin with the cascades and approaches to the terrace crowning the hill on which the Art Building stands. Wh-le not the largest in area, its position makes it one of the most conspicuous buildings in what has been called the main picture of the Exposition Eames & Youig, of St Louis, are the architects of the structure. The building fronts 525 feet on the main thoroughfare of -the Fxposition. The principal entrances are on the axes of the ostrich farm where about 250 large birds were kept. These birds are not as nice looking as those at Phoenix, Arizona. They weigh from 330 to 7()0 pounds and are valued about one dollar per pound. The hen lays from c0 to 90 eggs in one season. The eggs average *oout 16 to 18 inches in circumference and weigh about five [pounds. They begin to lay at four years of age and Are known to breed when they are SO years old. Wealsosa.v them loading a drove of ostriches to ship to Si Louis. We visited Pasadena, a namo. mean ing the Crown of the Valley, the city of millionaires. We then took a ride around the Kite shaped track. Every one who visits California ought to taKe '.his trip. This is called the Kite -haped track because it is shaped like she modern kite-shaped race trace. It is a double loop line 100 miles extend ing from Los Angeles through the full length of the San Gabriel Valley, the greatest fruit growing section of Cali fornia. Leaving Los Angeles early in the morning, we passed the noted Raymond Hotel, situated on a rounded hill in the center of a beautiful park. Pasadena was the first place we stopped. They tell us that twenty-five years ago that property fiere was sold at five dollars an acre. The next place of interest was San Bernardino, a beauti ful city Bituated near the base of snow capped mountains, the San Bernardino peaks, the highest mountains above the surrounding country in the United States. One very peculiar feature, noticeable near San Bernardino, was the great arrow-head covering one third of the side of a mountain. The next place of Interest was Redlands. This place commands the unqualified admiration of every tourist. For beauty, situation, and cleanliness it is unsurpassed by any city we have seen. Our stop here was most delightful. The trip up Smiley Heights and the walk among the flowers and foliage that help beautify that famous boule vard and the view of the surrounding country was well worth all the entire trip cost us. Our nest two hour stop was at Riverside, a city of 12,000, about the size of Redlands. Redlands and Riverside are rival cities, each striv ing to present the most beautiful appearance. Riverside is the greatest orange growini district in the world. It is estimated that the orange and lemon product of this section is GOCO carloads per annum. We took a twelve mile drive from Riverside passing through the finest orchards the state affords and through the great palm and magnolia avenues extending for miles In length. On our return trip we pass ed through Santa Ana Canyon and through the city of Orange, the city of llowing wells, through Pomona, through Baldwin's ranch and arrived in Los Angeles In the evening. Our next side trip was to Baldwin's Ranch the largest ranch in California It is o.vned by the millionaire Baldwin and contains 54000 acres all in orchards containing from 500 to 1000 acres ic one kind of fruit treet. We also visited the fast horse barns where hundreds of fast horses are kept. One of these, is said to have been the fastest running horse in the world. This ranch is also famous for its line wiues, made Irora its own vine yards. Our next side trip was the trip up Mt. Lowe. Who can describe this 1 wonderful trip? The base of the moun tain is reached by the electric railroad, THE EDUCATION AND SOCIAL ECONOMY BUILDING AT THE WORLD'S FAIR, ST. LOUIS—WEST VIEW. building, and somewhat resemble the well known form of the triumphal arch. At each angle of the building is a pavilion, forming a supplementary entrance, and these are connected by a colonnaae of monumental proportions. The four ele vations are similar in character, varying only as required to accommodate the de sign to the irregular shape of the ground plan A liberal use of architectural sculp ture lends a festal character to the other wise somewhat severely classical axterior. The screen wall -back of the colonnade gives opportunity for a liberal display of color as a background for the classic out lines of the Ccrinthian columns, affording liberal scope for the mural decorating. The interior court follows the general the first ascent by a cable. This is the steepest railroad in the world, this it cline is 3000 feet long acd rises 15000 eet vertically. On top of this incline is a good hotel, a large observatory acd a large search light. The rest of the ascent is made by an electric road, which runs zigzag along the sides of the mountain across the dangerous canyons and wild scenery, up through the timber to the Alpine Tavern. The rest of the way to the summit, 6000 feet above the sea, is easily reached by horseback or by walking up the trail. On a clear day the view from the sum mit is grand in the extreme. :i Last but not least of the side trips from Los Angeles was the trip taken to Santa Catalina Island. The voyage over from San Pedro is very delightful, provided you do not get sea sick, which is the ill fortune of the majority who take it. The sea was very rough when we made our trip and I for one can say that I know by experience what it is to b2 sea sick but Mrs. Morgan had the pleasure of laughing at the rest. We reached Avalon^the only city on the island after a four hours ride by steamer. This is certainly a most in teresting and unique place. Visitors from all over the United States and even many from Europe are attracted here. The island is owned by the Banning Bros. It is a wild moun tainous island about 30 miles long and five or six miles wide. The greatest attraction here is the marine gardens, seen through glass bottomed boats. No gardens on land can compare with them for beauty. Numerous fish, such as the Rock bass, the tuna, noted for their size, the sea lion, and schools of sardines thousands in number, ths sword fish, the convict fish, the gold fish, the blue fish and many sea urchins and sea cucumbers could be seen dar. ing back and forth under the boat, amohg the sea weeds. We will never forget the wild drive we made with a small party to the summit of the moun tain which arises out of the sea. We sat with the driver where we could, best see the sights. There was enough danger points to this drive to make it interesting. We reached the summit in three and one half hours. The sight that met our eyes was magnifi cent. Too soon our driver called to us to leave this enchanted spot. We started down and it was the most reck less drive we ever took. The three and one half hours ride going up the moun tain with s:x gjod horses, was made so rapidly dewn the mountain that it took less than one hour to reach the hotel where we started. On our return trip we were.fortunate enough to see a large whale which appeared only a few hun dred feet].from the steamer, Its head appeared first then its back and tail •and it shot forth a volume of water high in the air and disappeared to come up again a few times in the distance. We were a Methodist crowd on board and offered to take up a collection if he would perform again near us but he refused to do so. With the exception of a few visits to Long Beach and Alomitos Bay, and East Lake Park and other minor places we have told: of about all the side trips made from Los Angeles. We left ?Los Angeles for San Fran cisco via the Coast Line. This is a delightful and interesting journey. The sea on one side the mountain ranges onjthe other, added to the at tractions. We stopped on the way to Saita Cruz. We had seen many de outline cf the building in form and style' and is laid out in the form of a plaisance or garden of a 'ormal type. It is also sug-. gested that this building, the roof of which is practically on a level with the terrace of the Art Building, could be successfully utilized as a promenade, with a roof gar den^ and restaurant attachment. The contract price of the building was $3!9i399i and its builder was Jno. Dun navant & Co. It was completed by Dedi cation Day, was occupied at that time by the U. S. regular troops and later was used as a sculpture shop. Howard J. Rogers, Chief of the depart ments of Education and Social Economy has charge of the exhibits to be placed in this building. lightful places but Santa Cruz and vicinity surpassed all expectations. The Rocky surf view here, surpasses anything on the coast and the beauti ful bath house?, parks and drives add to the scenery. We took a drive to the big tree grove, passed the large powder mills where the smokeless powder was invented, up the beautiful canyon to the big tres grove. Of all the delightful places to camp this is the most delightful. Here General Freemont and his army passed the winter of 1847. We entered the tree that Freemont made his head quarters in 1S47. The room in the hollow of this tree was 14 16 feet. Holes were cut throught for windows and stove pipe. These have partly grown over now. These trees are as large as most of the trees in the Yosemite. Une graceful tree, the Giant measured 65 feet in circumfer ence, 3J7 feet high, and 140 feet to the first limb. All but one of these large trees were as straight as a line, and well Iproportioned. They are all red wood. Heluctently we left this en chanted place and took the narrow guage to San Francisco. No journey that we had the pleasure of making wasj more del ghtful and grand than was this. We crossed the San Fran cisco Bay on the large ferry boat and landed at the end of Market street, the principal street in the metropolis of the west-. My letter is long enough. I will continue it in the next issue giving car return trip. 1 NEW BANKRUPTCY DISTRICT. Referee W. S. Mayne of Council Bluffs, Has His District Enlarged, Giving Him Seven Counties.
