This community was shocked yesterday by a rumor of the death of Mrs. Parker, tbo wife of Mr. E. S. Parker. We stated in tho Her ald, the day after Parker was found guilty by the jury, that the shook was likely to be fatal lo that gentleman's wife. Mrs. Parker was of delicate physique and the nervous shock of tbe events which culminated iv her husband's con viction as accessory before the fact to tbe murder of Fonck was too much for her fragile health. She was a most accomplished lady aud was endeared to a iargo circle of friends, made since her residence iv Los Angeles. She belonged to a family of marked respectability. Parker himself has been insane since his conviction and has been prostrated by a nervous fever which will, very likely, carry him to his grave also. We have seldom beeu called upon to chron icle such a melancholy succession of misfortuues as have attended poor Parker and bis family. It was while attending at the sick bed of her husband that the poor lady succumbed to the disease from which she died.

We sincerely hope that pupils of this class have so far regained their strength and energy as to be able to finish the year with a respectable attendance; that is if they can do so with due regard to the periodi cal attacks of toothaches, headaohe, earache, eyeache, sore throat, etc., and at thesame time taking good care that school does not interfere wirli tlie acquiring of v large amount of street knowledge so nec essary to their happiness. Of course these things mint be attend ed to. Manufactured aches are very dangerous, and a good street education of the utmost import ance. Indulgent parent ■> cannot afford to send children with a sham bead acheor toothache, to school, there is great danger—of their learning something; and still more, it might smother their inventive faculties and, possibly, provent them Irom acquiring a strong love for whole sale falsifying.

CITIZENS' ADJOURNED MEETING. Address to tbe Citiiens of Southern California —Report of tho Committee of Five Adopted —Homo Protective League Formed—Tem porary Officers Elected. The adjourned oitizens' meeting convened in the County Court room at 7:30 o'clock last evening, H. T. Hazard, President, in the Chair. Minutes of previous mectiug read and approved. A communication was received from the Central Workingmen's Club. The Committee of Five presented the following address aud rules for tbe formation and government of an organization to be known as tbe Home Protective League of South ern California, which, after insert ing a clause offered by Mr. Butler, excluding politics from the de liberations of the Association, were unanimously adopted. ADDRESS To the Citiiens of Southern Califor nia: Whereas, The material prosperi ty of a country depends mainly upon the united efforts of the in habitants thereof in sustain ingand patronizing home industries, by which means all their resources are developed aud the wealth which is tbeir true independence is kept at home and distributed among tbe people. We, therefore, appeal to our cit izens to awaken to a stern realiza tion of tho fact that year after year we are growing poorer; money is becoming scarcer and scarcer, bus iness is paralyzed; tbe productive industries of our country areata standstill, and nearly all are dis tressed financially. Our farmers, merchants, laboring men and me chanics are idle, and in many in stances their homes a'redestitute of tbe necessaries of life. And why ? Because we have been and are still consuming tbe productions sent to us from abroad, and have turued a cold shoulder to and neglected our own home productive interests. The productiveness of our soil is our capital. Theu let us develop it, and by thus drawing on our own reaources cease to be borrow ers. Let us produce what we con sume, and claim our right to sup ply the markets abroad with all the articles of consumption they bave hitherto shipped to us, until we have paid our debts iv full. The better to carry out our de termination in that regard, we do hereby resolve ourselves into a league to be known as the " Hume Protection League of Southern California," and do take Upon our selves tbe following pledge: We, the undersigned, hereby agree aud pledge ourselves lo pur chase and consume ail articles pro duced or manufactured at borne in preference to those imported from abroad; to encourage, the con sumption of home productions; to aid in building up our manufactur ing, producing aud agricultural interests; to encourage the impor tation of coin and the exportation of home products. B. L. PEEL, Chairman. H. 1). Barrows, D. Rivara, W. H. Moore, Secretary. We, the Committee, recommend to this meeting that an organiza tion be formed to be called "The Home Protection League of South ern California." That this League shall bave aPresideut, Vice-President, Secre tary and au Executive Committee of five, whose duties shall be the same as those of similar officers in other organizations and as herein after provided for. For tbo proper regulation of our League we recommend the adop tion of tbe following rules: 1. The President shall be author ized to call a meeting at any time aud shall preside at each meeting. 2. Tbe Secretary shall keep the books aud papers of the League uud tbe miuutes of each meeting 3. The records shall be subject to the inspection of any member of the League. 4. No member shall be permitted to speak more than ten miuutes on any one sub ject without permission of v ma jority of the members present. 5. That the organization shall confine itself entirely to the objects set forth iv the pledge aud the address aud no other subject shall be discussed or considered at any meeting without, the couseutof a majority present, and the League shall not become a political party, or take part in any ot the county or State elections as such. 6. It shall be the duty of the Execu tive Committee to make provisions to extend this organization throughout our county and to in vite the co-operatinn of adjoining counties herein; to make all pro visions to further carry out the ob jects of tbe organization not other wise provided for. We would also further recom mend that a call bo made to the citizens of the county to organize Leagues in tbe various precincta and elect delegates to a general Con vent ion to be hereafter called by tlie Executive Committee. That said Convention, when con vened, shall proceed to effect a more permanent organization to further promote the objects of the league. Further, that the Executive Committee should forthwith take sucli steps as will disseminate the objects of the organization through out tbe couuty by calling meetings of the citizeus and inviting discus sion as to the best means of effect lug our objects, disseminating tlie address of this League among all classes and inviting their co-opera tion and assistance and inducing them to sign our pledge and to unite wjth and beoome members of our organization. Judge Peel moved that tbe meeting proceed to form a tempo rary organization, to remain in force until tbe League shall be per manently organized. Mr. Page called up the communi cation of the Workingmen. Thecommunlcatiou embodies the following propositions: First—That nono but Amerioan citizens or white labor be employ .id on any public work. Second—That no project be un dertaken having for its aim the ex penditure of publio funds for pri vate enterprise. Mr. lirierly moved that the com munication be received and tiled. Messrs. Butler, Page and others of tha Workingmen argued that the resolutions should be made part of the proceedings of the meet iug. Mr. A vers moved that tbe prin ciples laid down in the resolutions be adopted as the sense of this meeting, but tbat tbey be not in corporated in the plan of this League. A long debate, participated in by Messrs. Butler, Page, Hughes, More and other*, here took place on the Chinese ques tion, which was finally brought to a close by Mr. Nortou's making tbe point of order that tbe question before the bouse was Judge Peel's motion for the election of tempo rary officers. The follow!ug officers were elect ed: President, H. T. Hazard; Vice- President, L. E. Page; Secretary, J. J. Ayers. The meeting adjourned to meet Wednesday evening, April 17th, at the same hour and place. Board of Education. Board of Education met in the rooms of the Commercial Bank last evening. | Present—Messrs.
