LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD, THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 17, 1882*. A Battle of Admiration. CONGREGATIONAL ASSOCIATION. By the politeness of Cspt, Jerry Long, the well-known conductor nn the South crn Pacific Railroad, we have been per mitted to read some correspondence be tween Benjamin Flagler, President of the Society of the Twenty eighth New- York Volunteer, and the Fifth Virginia Confederate Volunteers. The Twenty eighth was a most gallant body of men. and while in the First Brigade, First Division if the Twelfth Army Corps, had a good deal of experience with the Fifth Virginia regiment iv the Army of the Potomac, and each learned to respect the prowess and spirit of tho other. Copt. W. W. Bush, a comrade of Capt. Long, was the first soldier to enlist in the Union army under the President's call for 75,000 men, in 1861, in tho Twenty-eighth New York regiment. These gallant fellows will have thoir twenty-second reunion at Niagara Falls next Tuesday, May 22d, and havo in vited the Fifth Virginia boys to meet them then and there, an invitation which has been accepted joyfully by the mem bers of the Fifth, and in the grand roar of Niagara, typical of the thunder of I battle through which they stood, will j meet andjgreot each other as only brave men meet their manly equals. Annual Meeting of the State Asso ciation Yesterday Interesting Proceedings and Addresses. The annual convocation of the mem bers of tho Southern California Congre gational Association commenced at !> o'clock yesterday morning, at the new Congregational Church, at the corner of Hill and Third streets. A prayer meet ing of great interest, lasting one-half hour, was held before the commencement of the regular proceedings of the con vention. j Rev. J. G. Hale, of San Bernardino, was elected Moderator, and Rev. O. L Smith, of Riverside, Scribe, both offices to continue for the enduing year. The minutes ot the session of a year ago were read, as formerly approved, far the in formation of the delegates. Revs. J. T. Ford, C. J. Hutchins and George C. Mack were appointed a Com mittee on Credential*. After delibera tion they reported iv favor of admitting Set*. A. J. Wells, of Los Angeles, (>. L Smith, of Riverside, and C. E. Vail, of Santa Barbara, as members of the asso ciation. Adopted. Albo, that the Etiwanda Congrega tional Church be received into the asso ciation. Adopted. The C ommittee on Nominations re ported in favor of allowing Revs. C. E. Vail, of Santa Barbara, C. D. Barrowa, of Snn Francisco, and Dr. Hough, of Jackson, Michigan, to act ascorrespond ing members. Approved. The committee also reported in favor of allowing all local pastors who desired to be present during the Bession, to he invited to acta* corresponding member?. Approved. Reports from.Santa Barbara, Sau Buena ventura, Los Angeles, Etiwanda, San Bernardino -two churches—Riverside, Westminster, and National City, were read, received and fited. The conven tion then adjourned until two o'clock P. M. Following is a list of the delegates: Rev. Dr. Weldou and Mr. C. S. Vail, Santa Barbara; Rev. A. J. Wells, Los Angeles; Rev. J. T. Ford and wife, and Messrs. D. M. Bradford and H. B. Mus cotte, first San Bernardino cbnrch; Rev. J. G. Hale, and Messrs. G. W. Beattie The spectacle will be memorable and valuable. Only in our glorious free country con audi scenes have full signifi cance. They mean fraternity to one another and to the land that bore them, and an admiration for thot which is no hlo in humtn character, and are of more power in sustaining order and law than an act of Congress. The members of the two regiments in Los Angeles will doubtless send their congratulations to their old comrades at Niagara next Tues day. A Curious Capture. A dispatch to Chief King, ou Tues day, stated that a man named Pc- I ter Kolbe, who had been a barkeeper and general utility man at tho United States Hotel in San Franoisco, had de camped and might be in Loa Angeles, was read to the force and a brief descrip tion of the man was given. He was described as a light young man with whiskers and a "hungry face." Yes -1 terday Officer Reynolds espied a man 'with a hungry look in bis face alight ■ from the San Francisco emigrant train, ! but the fellow had no whiskers to mark I his features. But the officer took him 'in and turned him over to the Chief, . who examined his person and baggage ! and found a fins lot of new clothing, which the prisoner said ha had pur i chased in Sacramento, which was true. | The burglars' keys in the trunk found ; by Captain Cuddy, did not look the rep resentative of innocence, and the Cap tain told him he might as well own up, and he did. He confessed to having stolen $500 from the hotel; had shaved bis whiskers all off, been on a spree in Sacramento, bought a trunk and some < clothes, mid a through second-class I ticket and started for the East with brilliant hopes of a good time in j | the land of hia nativity, when Qffieer I j Reynolds dissolved his day dreams | permaoently by taking him to jail. On j his person were found $162.50 and a J ticket worth £72.2\ less the amount used between Los Angeles and San Fran ! ciaco, showing that he had spent about : $270 in a few days for clothing and ! riotous living. and M. H. Crafts, second San Bernardi no church; Rev. C. J. Hutchins, Eti wanda; Key. G. L. Smith, and Messrs. B. F. White and E. F. Caldwell, River- side; thirteen delegates in ail, in add:- 1 tton to the corresponding members ad mitted. AFTERNOON SLSMON. Rev. George C. Mack presented a I memorial commemorative of the death | of Rev. Isaac Jacobus, of Westminster, 1 during the post year. On motion, a! committee whs appointed to 'express in | the form of a resolution, the sense of j the Association, on the occasion of the | death of Rev. Dr. Jacobus. Following are the names of the mem-; bersof the committee: Rev. J. T. Ford, 1 Mr. J. T. Tompkins and Mr. Sylvester j Lyman. They will present their report' at 9 o'clock this morning. Rev. C. D. Barrows, the well-known I pulpit orator of San Francisco, then gave the delegates a pleasant address, j "from a visitor." Rev. Or. Hough, of j Jackson, Michigan, followed in a plea?- j ing addreis, also "as a visitor." IfOtad that a committee be appointed , uu education, home missionary, tempei-j snce, and kindred subjects. This com- i mittee will be appointed thin morning, i uiHcrmioNH. The first discussion of the afternoon was on the subject, "The Bond of Union Between Congregational Churches,"; opened by a paper read by Rev. J. G.: Hale, al San Bernardino.and followed by j extemporaiieons remarks by Key. J. I. Ford and Dr. Warren. The second discussion was, "The Heathen at Our Doors," and was led by , Rev. C. J. Hutchins, of Etiwanda, and; participated in by Messrs. Hale, War ren, Tompkin*, Crafta and Taylor. Adjourned until 7i o'clock P. M. EVENING SESSION. The programme for the evening con siated of the usual musical exercises, with I sermon on the exalted subject, "The Gospel and the Age," by Rev. Dr. Hough, of Jackson, Michigan, formerly of Santa Barbara. The reverend speaker handled his subject eloquently, and was listened to with great attention. It also appears that the name he gave of Peter Kolbe is not his real name aud that his true name is Phillip Koch. Too much credit cannot be given the officers for their alertness and firmness in securing the young man with the "hungry look." An officer will come down after his hungriness to-morrow. Such culprits had better keep away from Los Angeles. An observer at our great husy railway station cannot fail to observe a steady increase in the number of through freight care between New Orleans and Los Angeles and San Francisco. Every day the hurrying trains receive their burden from the steamers at the Cres cent City and speed/ away through for est, prairie, desert and mountain chaius to the Orange Grove City, and then to the metropolis of tho State. When the weather is smooth off Hat teras the swift propellers of the Sunset Line between New York and New Or leans make rapid passage, aud gooda are brought to Los Angeles in thirteen day?, which is about a week quicker than by tbe overland, via all rail. The association will convene to-day at 9 o'clock a. M., and will probably fin ish its business by noon, when the mem bers will disperse to convene a year hence. Tbe present session of this as aociation has been very interesting and successful. * The San Francisco merchants admit that they get their goods two weeks quicker through Los Angeles by the Sunset Route, than by the Union Pacfic Railroad. Here is a point for our mer chants to take some advantage. They are now so much nearer the eastern mar kets that they can furnish goods freak, tbat section quicker and cheaper than the merchants in San Francisco. The Los Angeles merchants are now ahead of all rivals in ths handling of eastern goods. They get them at as low or lower rate* of freight, and have them delivered two days ahead of the mer chants of Sau Francisco. More than one-ualf of the Atlantic coast goods for San Francisco now pass through Los Angeles by the Sunset Route, aud in a short time uearly all such goods will pass this way. Rosier grades and quicker time will be the turning point in trans portation from the Atlantic coast, and Los Angeles is now th*. favored empori- A Mammoth Establishment. During a recent visit to the repository of tbe J. \V. Calkins Carriage Co., we were pleased to notice the many evi dences of their increasing ami prosper ous business. From the day of their opening their trade has steadily in creased, showing that our citizens appreciate their efforts to furnish a good article at very moderate prices. To meet the growing demand for their vehicle-*, they have in addition to their already extensive rooms leased the Arcadia Hall, which makes the finest nnd lightest show room in the city. Tljm room is devoted exclusively to the product of 1)1- celebrated manufacture of R. F. Hrigga & Co., of Amesbury, Mass., and is without exception the finest work ever offered for sale in Southern California. The stork consists ot one and two seat vehicles of all styles, includiug the far famed Dennetts &. Oppenheim jump seats and mounted on elliptic nnd side bar spring and the popular four spring California style. The J. \V. Calkins Carriage Co. have the exclusive handling of these tine goods in Southern California and will keep a full line in stock. The three rooms adjoining Arcadia Hall are filled with their standard goods, of medium grade, which Lave become a household word for style, quality and cheapness. Their stock of these gooda, including every variety of spring wagons and light farm wagons, is large aud complete. Ou the first floor they have taken the tine large room on the corner of Los Angeles and Arcadia streets, which is also fille*! with very desirable goods. Adjoining this, on Arcadia street, is the entrance to Arcadia Hall. We advise our readers, whether intending to pur chase or not, to look through their stock, and we assure them that they will be amply repaid for their time and trouble. See their advertisement iv other columus. The reader should bear the fact in mind that the goods of J. W. Calkins 4 Co. were made expressly for Southern California, having in view all the peculiarities of our climate During a brief inspection of their goods yester day we saw three jobs, of exquisite finish, destined for Riverside. About three week* sinco the Hkrald announced that tbe gap of '20*2 miles be tween the two termini of the railroad from San Krancisco to Portland, Oregon, was being rapidly closed. At that time twenty-vine miles hail been built in each direction, reducing the stage travel to 144 miles. Such an army uf men has been at work, however, that the Oregon and California Railway announces its completion to Glendale, 36 miles soutn of its terminus, as lately stated. Ths northern branch of the Ceutral PaeihV has been extended some *-l miles north, reducing the gap to about 87 miles, and makiug the overland journey far quicker and more comfortable. At this rapid rate of progress, it will not*be many months before the trip to Oregon will be easy and luxurious from Los Angeles to tho Webfoot State. Tho announcement of the opening of Joe Breson'a "Sample Room" at Santa Monica, appears iv oar columns to-day. Joe is one of the pioneers of the eoun ; try, a whole-souled generous gentleman with a host of friends from one end of the State to the other. If any doubt this call and see him at his place of business. SUICIDE NEAR SANTA ANA. ■ A Fugitive from Justice Ends His Career with a Pistol. Mr. M. P. Cutler, Public Administra tor, who was at Anaheim yesterday, brings news of v suicide committed near Santa Ana the evening before, by a na tive Californian named Lias, oi ii inn la lupe Csnssalis. It will be romembered by readers of the Herald thai, last October, the late Adolfo Celin, then a member of the City Police lores, »r rested Canasalis as the latter, aOoom panird by his fianccV, was entering a circus at Anaheim. This somewhat cruel proceeding was tho result of Cur.u aulis's having borrowed a horse, with out the knowledge or consent of tho owner, in San Luis Obispo county. He I was brought to this city and banded over to the sheriff of San Luis Obispo, who had followed him to Los Angeles. On being taken back to that county for trial, Canasalia managed to escape from the jail and made his way to Baja California, whence he had re turned but about an hour before he fired the shot that ended his earthly career. An inquest was held by Justice Bailey, of Anaheim, at which it was testified by inmates of the houae at which the fata 1 deed waa committed, that deceased had arrived at the house about 0 o'clock in the evening and, pay ing he was tired, laid down on a bed. In about-an hour afterwards a shot was heard and on going into the room where Canasalis was reclining, he was found to have shot himself, the ball entering the center of the breast and causing death in a few minutes. No cause was assigned, so far as Mr. Cutler was able to learn, for the act. Tho deceased, on his arrival, it is said, did not show anJsVigns of being out of his head or affected in any way. The theory is, that realizing by his return to thia section, that he placed himself in danger of arrest, on the old charges, he concluded to get rid df all his Uoubles hy ending his life. Colorado City. I Editor Herald :— The Weekly Ba&V At* is the only paper that has reached here for some time, and is alwaya wel come in our town, but it is hoped to have the Daily circulated on both sides of the river. This place is situated about one mile from the river and has some appearance of becoming one of the thriving towns of the West. The Atlantic and Pacific Ii some twen ty miles east of here ttsd advancing pevy rapidly. The bridge is being pushed with haste, and in a few days California and Arizona will be connected by rail in the northern part, where some of the best mines are located. At this place the railroad company have made some grand improvements and are at present at work on the Round house. There are thirteen tracks, including a spur which runs to the river, where the com pany aro to build a dock at which steam ers are to land. Murphy and Monaghan, two old con ductors of the Southern Pacific, are run ning a store at this place and doing a good business. It looks as though there might be a city here noon. Nearly every one has located and staked out lots and intend !to hold them. Fruit sells well and brings a good fig ure ; oranges, two for twenty five cents, and lemons three. Flour sells at $!) ptr sack of 100 pounds. As the growth of the town of Colorado advances, you will hear from thia point. Loits If, Li U 'I CoUMUPO aim, M ay 12th, 1883. The Timber Culture Law. There appears to ho a difference of opinion about the United States Land Law with regard to obtaining govern ment land by planting trees thereon. Several persons have requested to have the provisions of tbe law published. The Sunset Line. Under the timber culture act an ap plicant is entitled to 160 acres on any section naturally devoid of timber; the whole sec lion must be devoid of timber. On one section only one timber claim can be taken. It requires eight years to acquire a (Hia, Actual residence ia not required. The first year five acreß must be broken. Second year he must cultivate these five and break five more. Third year he must plant the firaj, five acres. Fourth yeur he plants the second five acres in trees, which make the ten acre?. On the day of final proof 6,750 trees must be liviug. This will require tbe trees to be placed eight feet apart and is ou easy way to get a farm. Enough eucalyptus seed can be picked in ten minutes ia our groves to plaut the ten acres. Probably some young men will cut this out, put it in their pocket, subscribe for the Herald and go and get a farm. An Ordinance Changing the name of Turner street.

HAST Jt HOLTIHOI HEX A Serious Mistake. The Santa Barbara papers arc calling attention to tho curlons fact that on tho hotel tablos of Los Angeles they get tho poorest oranges, whilo in San Francisco they get excellent oranges from Los An geles. If this statement Is true, onr hotel keepers will do welt to havo the conditions changed. If our city and county is to be populated densely, it must be popularized by a nice regard for the wants of those who visit us. Oranges of the best kind are cheap in Loa Angeles, and there is no excuse for using inferior fruit. The hint thrown out by our neighbor is worth remember ing. Our caterers to the palate and taste of visitors should mako the best provision for tho comfort and happiness of their guests. Good fruit can always bo had in abundance m this city, and oranges can Iw found 12 months in the year to deck tho table with their golden glory. There is no place in the Union where fruit is so perennial ns it ia in Los Angelea, and thero can be no excuse for not having fine fruit oil tho year on the tables of our hotels and restaurants. The objection mentioned by our Santa Barbara contemporary has come to us from San Francisco and other places,and we fear that there is too much fotinda tion for the truth of the statement. If there is, it should be speedily corrected. We have a glorious fruit supply and should show our visitors tho fat of the land. That is courteous, just, ami most profitable in tbe end. Overland Roads. There will soon be seven overland railways across the continent. At pres ent there are four systems; tbe Central and Union Pacific; 'he new Atlantic and Pacific route, soon to be opened; tbe Texas Pacific, and the Southern Pacific to New Orleans. A gap of but 120 miles exists in Montana, between the two termini of the Northern Pacific, and its brother, tbe Canadian Pacific, will soon be closed, while, ns stated a few days since, the Denver and Rio Grande road is pushing for this coast, and will be changed to a broad guago. Now comes the Chicago, Milwaukee & St, Paul railroad, and proposes to extend its road from the present terminus in Dakota, to the Pacific ocean, upon the report of the directors who recently visited California, upon our vast resour ces. This will shortly give ns seven competing lines to the east, three of which will come to Los Angeles, which must certainly be of advantago to Cali fornia. Electricity and Magnetism the New Means of Cure. Dr. E. Robbins, the successful electric and magnetic healer of 110 Main street, between Second and Third al reels, who has made so many wonderful cureß in this city, is still meeting with immenae success. His rooms are crowded daily with patients anxious to get tho benefit of his powerful magnetism. The blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk and he sick are healed by this new develop ment in medical science. Or. Robbins discards the use of all medicines in his treatment and relies solely on the power of magnetism. An experience of several years iv the Australian colonies and this country enables him to assert with conti dence that he can cure diseases that baf fle the skill of other physicians. He also diagnoses disease without explana tion from the patient, free of charge. We would advise all persons suffering from painfnl diseases to call and see tbe Doctor and get the benefit of his advice. Testimonials have already appeared in the columns of the Herald showing his ability as a magnetic physician. mlslm The largest stock of drugs, medicines, perfumeries and toilet articles in South ern California, at C.
