About (wo hundred Woiklng-
Dien and Farmers were present at
the mass meeting in front of
Downey Block last night. A brass
band was present and enlivened
the crowd by muaic at the proper
iutervals. Tlie meeting was or
ganized by the election nf Thomas
McKee, a farmer from Florence, as
President, and Jesse H. Butler,
Secretary. After a few remarks
from tho Chairman, a poem, com
posed for the occasion, was read by
Mr. Butler. Speeches were made
by J. P. West, Edward Evey and
Judgo Thompson, candidates for
delegates t • the Constitutional
Convention, and by Messrs. Kin
ley, Pitt, Hughes und Page, all of
whom were listened to with atten
tion. About 11 o'clock the meeting
broke up.
Attention is directed to tlie card

Mr. Smurr, of the S. P. R. It,
informs us I hat the receipts of
freight at the Depot havo been
fifty per cent, larger this year than
nt this timo last year. Owing to
the retrenched wool crop, aud to
the fact that most of the shipments
of produce abroad have been by
water, we have not made so good a
showing in our exports.
Our office was inundated yester
day by clergymen and their repre
sentatives who repudiate Mr. Al

Tho Beaudry 01ft Accepted.
The largest publio meeting of the
season was held at Union Hall
yesterday, on the occasion •of the
regular monthly meeting of the
Southern California Horticultural
Society. It was known that the
question of locating the pavilion
would come up us the main topic
for discussion and action; and, as
the friends of tho various sites of
fered had worked up a good degree
of enthusiasm, lively times were
anticipated. During the past week
new members were enrolled by
Secretary Holt aud dues were paid
by delinquent members iv order to
give them a chance to express
their preference when tho final
vote was taken. Early yesterday
morning the Secretary's office was
visited by anxious horticulturists
and others, and any one would nat
urally Infer, lo see the cash come
in and the certificates of member
ship go out, that hard times bad
permanently taken leavo of tills
section of the State, and that the
flush times of '73 had again come.
Up to tho hour of meeting the
throng increased, aud at eleven
o'clock Union Hall was so densely
packed that standing room was at
a premium. The frieuds of the
Kivara & Vignola property, on
Main and Fifth streets, felt confi
dent of success; M. J. Newmark,
on behalf of the business men, of
fered to build a fine pavilion on
Commercial street, giving the Hor
ticultural Society a permanent Tree
lease of the same, and W. L. J.
Moulton, of the Los Angeles und
Independence Railroad Company,
proposed to sell the fine San Pedro
street depot property for $7,500, on
easy terms; but the munificent
gift of ex Mayor Beaudry of a
block of land ou the north side of
Temple street, 1500 feet from
Temple Block, with a frontage
of 200 feet aud a depth of
nearly 300 feet, had taken the eye
of the outsider as well as city
members ami the meeting let no
opportunity pass to show its hearty
approval of this site whenever the
sutiject was mentioned. Parlia
mentary tactics were skillfully
used by both friends anil opponents
ofthe Beaudry proposition until a
vote was finally reached, at 2
o'clock P I[.< upon a resolution of
fered by Mr. Truntum, to accept Mr.
Beaudry's liberal gift. A roll call
wus demanded nud the Secretary
waded through the large member
ship list of some five hundred
names in order to give tlie two
hundred present a chance to vote.
Prior to iho roll call the three
hours' session bad tired out many
and at least one hundred members
had left to attend to urgent Satur
day work. The roll call finished,
the Presideut anuouueed the result
as 131 for the Beaudry proposition
t057 against it, which result was
received with deafening applause.
We learn that the utmost good
feeling prevails among the mem
bershipand the public generally,
aud that whatever of feeling might
have been engendered during the
two weeks' contest, has pretty
much disappeared in the general
feel lug that the Society has secured
nu invaluable properly. All will
now take hold and give the Society
a general lift in raising funds with
which to erect the building.
We cannot let this opportunity
pass without re-echoing the senti
ment so universally expressed that
Mr. Bent, as Vice-President of the
Society and Chairman of the meet
ing, in the absence of Presideut
Shorb, covered himself with glory
by the able manner in which he
presided over tho assemblage. On
future occasions tlie public will
know who to call upon when they
have heavy work for a chairman
to perform.
We learn that the Board of Di
rectors of the Society will hold a
meeting next Tuesday for the pur
pose of completing the work of re
ceiving the property from Mr.
Beaudry und also for putting a sub
scription before the public to raise
funds with which to build. Some
six thousand dollars will be needed,
and, judging from the present in
terest manifested, we think the
task of raising it will not be a
heavy one.
Los Nietos Valley Items.
The subjoined items are from the
Downey Courier of the Bth iust:
There was a slight sprinkle of
rain on Wednesday evening,
though not enough to lay tha dust.
A heavy rain just now would be
apt to lujure the new-mown hay.
Our exports the present week
have consisted of the fallowing:
Corn, 508 sacks, weighing 50,812
pounds; spuds, 46 ssoks, weighing
5,003 pounds; merchandise, 4,9.35
pounds. Total, G9,BtXl pounds.
Our exports for tbe month of
May foot up the magnificent total
or 1,270,851 pounds. Corn, 10,130
sacks, weighing 1,248,332 pound*:
walnuts, 29 sacks, weighing 1,994
pounds; merchandise, 20,505
pounds. Last year was a dry year
—a year of severe drouth—yet the
figures of tbe exports of the pro
ducts of that year, from this
section, are something marvellous.
The harvesting of tho barley
crop Is proceeding rapidly, and tbe
yield of some fields is suid to be
good. A comparatively small
amount of barley Is being threshed
Tlio bay crop will be large. On
many barley ileitis largo droves of
hogs are being fattened. No ship
ments have yet been made. Coru
throughout the valley, according
tv all accounts, Is looking well, and
gives promise of a bountiful yield,
and prospects are good for remu
nerative prioes. It is estimated
that about ten thousand acres of
corn has been and will be planted
in our valley, and with a proper
system of irrigation, now about to
be inaugurated, loss of portions of
the crop from lack of water, will be
in a great measure obviated. The
immense field of corn, planted by
Mr. W. A. Switzer and others, on
the Laguna ranch, between this
place and Los Augeles, looks
thrifty aud will undoubtedly pay
the enterprising farmers a baud
seme profit. The caterpillar pest
destroyed portions of some fields,
hut we understand the insects have
about disappeared.

Rumored Death of the Oldeat Woman in tie
World-Brief Biographical Sketch.
A rumor was current iv the cily
last night that the venerable Dofia
Eulalia Perez de Quilen, who, it is
claimed, had reached tho patri
archal age of 143 years, had died at
the residence of her daughter, at
the Mission San Gabriel, on Friday
night. We used every exertion to
learu if the rumor was true, hut
were unable to meet any one who
could give us reliable information
on the subject. We are indebted
to our friend Don Juan Warner for
the following brief biography of
the aged deceased:
Doila Eulalia Perez de Gtiilen
was born at Loreto, Baja Califor
nia, where she married and resided
until she became the mother of
two children. With ber two chil
dren, one an infant at the breast,
she accompanied her husband, who
was a soldier and who wus a mem
ber of a small detachment of troops
sent by land from Loreto to San
Diego, uot long after the founding
of missions in Alta California by
the Franciscan Friars.
She remained in San Diego,
where her husband was stationed,
some years, and until Mr. Guilen
was transferred to the mission of
Sau Gabriel, then comparatively
a uew mission, to which place she
accompanied him. She was the
mother of a large family of chil
dren. While living in San Diego
she acted as midwife and after
coming to San Gabriel she followed
that calling both at the Mission
and iv this cily. Many of those
nt whose birth she assisted as mid
wife iv Los Angeles huve
died years since alter having
lived the biblical period of
man's life — three score years
and ten. Her age has not been
known for some years past, which
fact has caused some discussion. It
is claimed by some of her descend
unts and others connected with ber
family, that ber age exceeds oue
hundred aud forty years. Some of
her family or connections at
tempted, übout two years ago, to
take tlie old lady to the Centen
nial, but us other members of her
family were unwilling to have
their ancestor carried oft' to be
shown us a curiosity, proceeding,
were instituted iv tlie courts here
to restrain the commission of
what they looked upon its almost v
sacriligious act. Since then tlie
old lady has lived witli her
daughter, we believe, at the Mis
sion of San Gabriel.
Later—Mr. Fred Kobler, who
was at the Mission yesterday, in
forms us that he got the news of
the death of Sell na de Guilen,
which occurred late on Friday
night or early Saturday morning,
from Postmaster Allen of that
place, whom he met with a party
on tiieir way to visit the remains of
the old lady. Mr. Alien further
informed Mr. Kobler that the fu
neral would take place from the
Mission church this morning.
The Microphone.
1 lie Scientific American supple
ment uf the present week reprodu
ces o. lengthy paper (illustrated)
read ou lho evening of May 9th,
1878, before tho Royal Society of
England, by Prof. Huxley, V. R.
S., on lho " microphone." This
last discovery is tho invention of
an American, Prof. li. S. Hughes
ot Kentucky, although tlie Scien
tific American claims that Mr. Ed
ison has the prior right to the
credit of originating tiie idea upon
which it is made. It combines Ilia
iwo principles of electricity and
carbon iv an instrument otherwise
somewhat akin to the telephone.
It is intended to magnifying weak
sounds, either near by or those
made at a distance. It is intended
to do for faint sounds what the mi
croscope does for objects too small
for human vision. In the paper
referred to it is stated tbat wilh
this instrument, " If a pin, for in
stance, be laid ou or taken off a
table, a distinct sound is emitted,
Or if a lly bo eon lined under a table
glass, we can hear tbe fly walking
with a peculiar tramp of its own.
The beating of a pulse, the tick of
a watch, tho tramp of a fly, oan
thus be heard at least a hundred
miles distant from tlio source of
sound." The application of this
principle to the telephone, will
render its practical success uo long
er doubtful.
Card from Mr. M. H. Kimball.
Editor Hkkald: In answer to
Rev. G. S. Allen's card in last eve
uing's Exprest in regard to what
he understood me to say, and what
I did uot say. On Friday last, at
the sollcitalion of Mr. Allen, I
called on official members of two
churches and asked them to ad
journ their morning service to ihe
tent ou Spring streot. One replied,
"If all the cuurchesdo it, we will."
Another said, "Our master lives in
the country, hut will be in town
ou Saturday, and I will speak to
him about it." Tnis I reported to
Mr. Allen, word for word, und
promised to see Itev. Mr. Packard
that evening nud ask of hint a
similar favor, whijh I did, and was
told that the request would be sub
mitted to the trustees For their con
sideration. This I reported to Mr.
Allen, also, on Saturday. Now,
where does the misunderstanding
come in? I fail to see it. It seemed
to me to be rushing the matter, to
commence late ou Friday after
uoon lo upset all lho regular
church services in the city, aud
pleasantly convene them else
where, ou so short a notice.
Very Respectfully,
M. H. Kimball.

The Cruel Way In Which Tbe Oily Edicts
sra Carried Oat—A Htrde of Young Buhl
Yesterday afternoon we entered
tbe corral on Main street, above
First, which has been set apart ns
the dog pouud. We found dogs of
all grades, from the noble New
foundland to curs of low degree.
Sixty iv all were Impounded and
awaiting deatli or the appearance
of their masters. When any word
of kindness was addressed to the
poor brutes they would send up
most piteous appeals. Some of
them had been there two days, aud,
although Chief of Police Harris
assured us they wtre supplied with
food aud water, Ihey rooked as if a
chance bone thrown amongst (hem
would have resulted iv a mortal
struggle which would probably
have been fatal to the smaller
For some time past our readers
have probably noticed that gangs
of small boys havo been whoop
ing it after certain unfortunate
cars which, were running wild
without collars, contrary to the
municipal statute made aud pro
vided in such cases. These boys
receive a reward for every cur of
low or high degree they may bring
into the pound. Many young na
tive Californlans are in these
gunge, and they are supplied with
lassoes from which the dogs fiy in
the wildest terror.
The stable in which the dogs arc
confined isjust behind the jubilee
tent aud they must have enjoyed
some very flue music, aud perhaps
they contributed to the chorus
some notes, neither expeoted nor
accounted for, during the progress
of that festival.
On our visit to the dogs we encoun
tered Dr. Luppo, of the Society for
tlie Prevention of Cruelty to Ani
mals, who was consulting with
Chief Harris as to tlie advisability
of poisoning, drowning or asphyx
iating tne dogs, the latter process
Consisting of shutting them up iv a
clo-e room and surcharging them
witli a deadly gas which would
render their death painless. Alas!
poor dogs! There aro undoubtedly
some of them which would be un
reasonable euough to be pained by
the idea of being done to death at
all, could their dog-gnned intelli
gence rise to the complexity of
comprehending a canine Tlianu
topds. The S. P. C. A., as repre
sented by Dr. Luppo, favorasphyx
Iv conclusion, if your "dorg" has
mysteriously disappeared, you had
better at once pay a visit to the
City Pound, for all which are not
reclaimed by to day will be as
ruthlessly slaughtered to-morrow
as were the babes in tho Tower by
"Richard The Three Times, or,
One Hundred and Eleven," as the
countryman read the play bill.

recourse should be had, upon the first
manifestation of trouble, to Hostelter's
Hitters, which experience hus proved to
be highly effective as a menus of import
ing tone and regularity to (lie organs of
urlantion, as well as to the liver, stom
uch and bowels. Another beneficial re
sult of this medicine, naturally conse
quent upon its diuretic action, is the
elimlontion from tbo blood of Impuril ien
which beget rheumatism, gout, dropsy,
and other maladies. By increasing Ihe
aclivltyof the kidneys, it augments tlie
depurative eltlctency of those oigans,
which are most important outlets for the
escape of such Impurities.
