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
Th-. creditors who filed dumurrers
are as follows: Bank of Denison.

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.
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
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
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.
Interesting Letter on California
Written by Rev Morgan.
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
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
cription of a few of the principle points
of interest that we had the pleasure of
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

Are known to breed when they are SO
years old. Wealsosa.v them loading

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,
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

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.

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
