CALLAGHAN BLOCK.
AmlAddition to Los An
geles Architecture.
ANOTHER SOLID BUILDING.
Am Ornament to the City on the
Corner of Spring »"« ' i hirtl
Streets.
Another massive and boantiful struc
tara bat been added to the Met of nota-
We buildings possessed by Los Angeles.
Visitors and residents of this city have
jjUnl that carpenters, masons and
aaiaters have been engaged for some
ti P„t i n the erection of a handsome
Week to be called the "Callnghan
Block," tituated on the southwest cor
war of Spring and Third streets. This is
WUt of briok and iron, in the French
iiaiiin-" style of architecture, with
three stories and basement, and is solid
■ad imposing in its appearance. The
flaring street front is 130 feet, with six
haadsomsly finished stores, and on Third
street the depth is eighty-five feet. Both
floats are very commanding in design,
there being seven bay windows on
Soring street and three on Third street.
At the angle of the building, on the
earner of Spring and Third, is a large oc
tagonal hay window, surmounted by a
lofty tower, eighty-two feet high from
the sidewalk to the deck, aud four feet
aiae inches of iron casting. The central
feature of the Spring street front is a
large bay window, surmounted by a
hag* domeshaped roof, seventy-nine
teat high from the sidewalk, and sur
mourned by a flagstaff twenty-five feet
high. The center is still further relieved
by a large portico, twenty-eight feet by
fourteen feet, constructed of iron and
wood in an | elaborate manner. The
aotitti bay window terminates in a tower
seventy feet high. These towers are
connected with the main roof by doors.
The bay window on the Third street
front is surmounted by a large pediment,
-with the name "Callaghan Block" and
save, in large characters.
The bay windows, cornices and other
dressings are executed ia galvanized
iron, wood, cement and pressed brick,
with oastiron front to the stores, and
atoas oilU. The fronts of stores are

transom sashes with small squares of
doubly thick glass. The ceilings of the
store entrances are pannelled with wood.
Toe tix stores avenge from 26.6 to

There are two staircases lrom tbe
streets to the third floor level. The
main staircase is situated at the center
of tbe Spring street front, and the other
ia in the rear of the Third street front,
all wide and spacious, to afford easy
■exit in case of fire or panic.
There are three iron tire escapes from
the third floor windows in easy distance
ot the firemen's ladders. These lad lers
alto continue within reaching distance
of the roof, so as to afford an escape to
tbe roof and streets. They are fitted
with platforms and railing so as to pre
vent any danger from falling.
The stores are fitted with steps and
elevators un the inside to the cellars be
low. The structure of the building has
been fully considered in solidity and
strength, it being calculated to carry two
more stories in case of need. Provision
is also mado for a passenger elevator,
whioh may be needed when the other
storie< are added.
Tbe whole of the finishing of the
ereoud and third floors throughout, in
ciadii'g all doors and sashes, is in espe
cially picked redwood.
id us tof the rooms on both floors are
fitre 1 with marble wash.l a-ins, aud there

fitted up with water closets for
ladies aud gentlemen, also bath
tabs, slophoppers and sinks, all
of the beat mak) and patents. The
whole of these water closets, basins
and urinals are ventilated through the
roof- There has been special attention
paid to sanitary plumbing throughout
the building. There are three water
connections from the City Water Com -
pany's main; also a tank over the rear
water closet, on the top of the roof,
holding 10,000 gallons ot water. This
cistern is kept full for the fire hydrants
exclusively.

and 16 feet wide, with large wells for
light aud ventilation.
The floors ot the cellars are paved
with concrete.

wide on Third street. The skylights are
glazsd withthick-ribbed glass. Tho hard
ware throughout the building is of the
best quality, and the whole of the build
ii.g is title I with gas.
A VALUABLE ADDITION.
Wlsaebarsrh'a Leadlni Fancy
Cioods House.
One of tbe main features of this new
block, in fact of Los Angeles, is the n*w
and elegant store styled Wineburgh's
Leading Fancy Gooas House. It de
serves the name it hears. The stock is
entirely new, as Mr. Wiueburgh has
selected this city cf Angeles to cast his
back upon the commercial world. Hav
ing been identified with some of the
largest fancy goods bouses on tbe Pa
cific coast for many years, he is well
acquainted with the requirements of a
first-class house and has laid in a stock
which must in itself suit the most
fastidious, disregarding the low priceß
at whioh he has placed it. This store is
209, next to Davis' drug store, and store
is tastefully decorated with laces, rib
bons, etc. The two elegant show win
dows are neatly dressed, more on the
style of the large San Franciaco stores, j
As business is rapidly moving down
Spring street, Mr. Wineburgh's store is ■
very conveniently situated und bis |
locating in the Callaghan Block will
have the eft ct of bringing a large num- ,
her of other business houses there in a |
abort time. Wineburgh's opened its ,
doors for business last Monday and not
withstanding the presence of painters, j
and masons in and around ,
tbe store, have beam doing a good bnsi

McNALLY & YOUNG.
California, and consumed about three
months in construction.
Both Mr. Callaghan and the architect,
Burges Reeves, are more than satined
with the very satisfactory manner in
whioh this firm has exeonted their con.
tract, and the architect pronouces it
one of tbe best pieces of work that has
come under bis supervision. Those who
are about to build, or want a good foun
dation laid, will find it to their advan
tage to drop this firm a postal card and
get their idea and prices. Mr. Young
also laid all the cement work in the
building, and did all tbe plastering in
the eighty rooms of the building, and te
his oredit there is not to be found a
single crack throughout the building.
ENSIGN & WILSON.
Energetic men With the Boss
stewing nachlnra.
Another new firm that this article
will introduce to tbe public is Ensign &
Wilson. These enterprising young men
have been fortunate in scouring one of
the best stores in the block, and will in
troduce to the publio of Southern Cali
fornia a sewing machine which will soon
revolutionize the sewing machine trade.
These gentlemen represent the Standard
sewing maohine, and are the general
agents for Southern California. Tbe
Standard is manufactured at Cleveland,
O. A sufficient guarantee of the merits
of this machine is that it was invented
and is being manufactured by the well
known Mack Bros., who also were the
inventors and manufacturers of the Do
mestic sewing machine. When they in
vented the Standard machine they sev
ered their connection with the Domestic
Manufacturing Company, and are now
putting their entire time and energies, as
well as their wealth, into their new in
vention. •
The Standard is represented by ex
perts to be a marvel in mechanism and
simplicity, doing the work with much
more rapidity and ease than can be done
upon the old' styles of machines. It is
entirely a new machine, and can be re
lied upon to do the finest kind of work.
To housekeepers, wives and dressmakers
the Standard machine will in a short
time be recognized as just what tbe in
ventor claims it to be: the best machine
in the market.
Time and space will not admit of our
going into detail upon tbe superior
points of the Standard. If any one de
sires to know anything about the ma
chine, call and see it before making a se
lection. Messrs. Ensign & Wilson ex
pect lo have their machines on hand so
as to be open about April Ist in their
new and elegantly fitted store at 207
South Spring street.
CONFECTIONS.
A Palace Where Ice Cream and
Cakes can he Found.
Los Angeles has long been in need of
a place where the elite may partake of
delicate coufections and bon-bons, where
in the heat of the day ladies may tip
iced drinks and cool their parched
mouths with ice cream. Such a place as
this has been created by Lewis Ebinger,
who has, with the aid of the best talent,
succeeded in fitting up a veritable eating
palace. This is on the corner of Spring
and Third streets, in the Callaghan
Block, and cannot fail to attraot the
attention of all who visit that neighbor
hood. Mr. Ebinger has been in tbe
business fourteen years, and he is well
aware that popularity depends in a great
measure upon the inviting appeaiance
and tbe attractive fitting of parlors
where ladies and gentlemen are expected
to attend in their leisure time. Besides,
il is a well known faot that the daintiest
appetites can be catered to only in places
where the surroundings as well as the
edibles are of the very best quality. To
accompl.sh his object in supplying this
deficiency Mr. Kbinger has spared no
expense, and in even the smallest detail
there ia an elegance which is noticeable.
Nothing is so cooling iv sppearance on
a wa/in day as pure white, and that is
tbe color to which Mr. Ebinger has ad
htied in the main. White is also
the emblem of purity, and in
all vianrts hereafter to be obtained
at Mr. Eoinger's this will be the fact
that will aid in keeping up his reputa
tion and in gaining for him an inorease
in patronage. Enieriug lrom the street
through the doorway, the visitor is at
first bewildered by the ma^nifionteffect
of the white background and the mir
rors which are paneled everywhere. The
scene is almost fairy like, for on every
side the reflections of shelving and
counters laden with the choicest coufec
tions, is seen. It is not necessary for
the visitor to go about from poiut to
point in order to determine just what is
included in the show-cases. These mir
• rors of French-plate glass, with their
polished surfaces, notjonly aid in show
ing off the goods, but they enable the la
i dies to detect at once any defects in their
toilet arrangement, and thus are almost
i invaluable adjuncts At night when the
- electric light gleams forth tbe brilliancy
of the store in general cannot fail to
attract everybody. When filled with
all tbe toothsome delicacies which hu
i man mind can conjure there can be
notting more inviiing than will be this
palace. Passing from the store, which
is twenty-eight feet long by twenty-six
feet wide, the ice-cream parlors and din
ing rooms are reached. Here the heavi
est foot fall is not heard, so soft and
thick is the carpet on the floor. Gener
ally speaking, the name "parlor", given
to eating rooms, has no meaning that is
visible, but here is to be found a verita
ble parlor with furniture as elegant
. and as costly as can be seen on this
- coast. Here, it is that in the
beat of the day ladies and parties of la
. dies and gentlemen may partake of the
' good things of this life. Here they can
I exchange gossip and news and enjoy
- themselves at that tiuie when all nature
desires rest and recuperation. These
parlors extend to the bick entrance on
' Third street, and are spacious enongh to
i accommodate every oue who may be
come faint from hunger or from tuirst.
i They are tilted up on all sides with tap
estry of the utmost elegance and of tbe
tii est. texture, and time will have no ef
fect in impairing their appearance.
These are also lit up with electricity,
I and after eventide there will be an
MILLINERY EMPORIUM.
The misses McCarthy A Deven-
dorf's Store.
As Los Angelas is fast approaching a
metropolis, the tastes of the people are
becoming more esthetic, and this is to a
great extent what causes the many im
provements in some of our enterprising
business bouses. Tbe ladies of Los An
geles are to be congratulated upon their
stylish appearance and good taste, and
they are always on the alert to patron
ize the establishments that keep the
most stylish and latest style goods on
hand. Recognizing these facts. Miss
Ellen McCarthy and Miss Ida Deven
dorf have fitted up one of the spacious
stores in the Callaghan Block and will
open next Tuesday with a full line of
the very finest French goods of Ihe
latest styles and shapes, direct from
Paris and tbe East. These ladies have
had a great deal of experience iv their
line and can suit the tsste of the most
fastidious. Miss Devendorf is from
San Francisco, where she became famil
iar with tbe millinery trade by years of
experience in one of the largest houses
there. Miss McCarthy is well atid fa
vorably known in Los Angeles, she hav
ing had charge of one of the best pat
ronized houses here. These ladies will
give their business their personal super
vision and will aim to please every one.
As all faces are not alike, and what will
become one will not another, it is neces
sary to have a very large stock of goods
in order to be able to suit the many dif
ferent faces. This these ladies have,
and they will be able to place a most be
coming bat or bonnet on any of their
patrons. The establishment will be
opened Tuesday morning for inspection.
The opening of spring millinery will
take place about the last of this mouth.
PLAIN AND FANCY GROCERIES
The mammoth Establishment of
C. E. Donahue.
Number 205 in the Callaghan Block,
is the grocery store of Mr. C. E. Doua
hue. The store is very spacious, being
twenty feet by eighty feet in the front
and twenty eight feet wide back of the
staircase. Mr. Donahue has also tbe
basement, which is the same size, and
has laid in one of tbe finest and best se
lected stocks of plain and fancy grocer
ies in Southern California. Mr. Dona
hue is well and favorable known to the
Los Angeles .'people, and he owes his
businees success entirely to the honest
manner in which bo has always treated
his customers. He established himself
at No. 12 South Main street about three
years ago, and about tbirteen months
afterward the store passed into Mr.
Donahue's possession.
When Mr. Donahue heard that the
Callaghan Blook was about to be erected
he knew that his increasing business
would soon demand more spacious quar
ters, and lost no time in securing one, if
not the largest, store iv the block. His
experience in the grocery line ought to
be a guarantee that his goods are se
lect* 1 with good judgment aud with the
greatest care. And another point no
ticable about the manner in which Mr,
Donahue conducts his business, is that
a customer can rely upon getting full
weight, while his prices are as low as
any bouse in Loa Angeles. He deals in
pure unadulterated groceries, and sells
them as cheap as honest business princi
ples will permit. Mr. Donahue makes
a specialty of tine teas, fresh roasted
coffees, gilt-edge butter and table luxur
ies. His eggs and butter are always
fresh, they being received daily from the
ranch.
attractiveness to them which will
nut soon be forgotten by the
visitor. Underneath the entire store
and parlors is the bake-shops,
where will be manufactured everything
in the confectionary line that has been
invented up to tbe present time, and it
would not bo surprising if Mr. Ebinger
should discover the art of making some
special delicacy which would aid in
keeping his name before tbe public.
Where the latest utensils are at hand
and there is plenty of room, with every
convenience, it is to be expected that
every article coming therefrom should
be of tbe very best quality and it is
guaranteed in advance that tnis will be
tbe case. In this basement there are
two large ovens, each 12x11 feet, and
these will be kept busy day and
night to supply the custom. Places (or
eighteen bakers have been arranged and
these individuals have been seltcted
from tbe best talent on this coast. Some
of them have had years of experience
in creating confections, and are as far
advanced in all tbe arts pertaining
thereto as are tbe famous confectioners
of Paris. All the fixtures below are on
a gigantic scale, and tbe ice cream
freezers alone will manufacture 200 gal
lons a day. When it is considered that
each person can eat but a twentieth part
of a quart, it is apparent that a large
number of people to be supplied ars ex
pected.
Transient trade is not the only kind
that Mr. Ebinger expects, and he is
preparing to deliver his goods to any
part of the city. Two delivery wagons
will be in constant use, and if more are
found to bo necessary they will be built.
It is almost certain that from the start
there will be enough outside orders to
supply to keep these wagons employed
from early morning to late at night.
Mr. Ebinger believes in promptly filling
any crder he may receive, and if delay
occurs it will not be bis fault. It will
be found that parties and balls cannot
be successfully given without being fur
nished with delicacies and ice cream from
this establishment. Cakes and candies
arc a very necessary adjunct of an even
ing or an afternoon gathering and no
where else can they be found in such
variety. The picnic season is close at
hand and those who attend will find it
necessary to have their lunchet put up
by some reliable house. Mr. Ebinger
is prepared to cater to picnics as well as
to other gatherings, and for weddings
the cakes will be made to order in the
shortest notice. Altogether Mr. Ebin
ger's establishment is one which will
prove an honor to the city of Los An
geles. ~"
His whole stock, which embraces
everything good to eat anil everything
kept by a i.rst-dasa grocer, is of the best
and guaranteed as represented, or the
money refunded. Mr. Donahue keeps
twodslivery wagons going all the time,
aud cmi loys six bands. His telephone
number is No. 441, and all orders Bent
over the wire will receive prompt atten
tion.
liood Work by (Ills Reliable
Firm
When Mr. Callaghan'made up his mind
to erect tbe magnificent structure tbat
now bears hid name, be was especially
careful that the contract to lay the
foundation and brick-work should be
let only to an experienced brick mason,
fie wanted a solid foundation, a sort of
> Rockof-Ages foundation. After much
inxious deliberation the contract was
iwarded to the well-known firm of Mo-1
lally & Young. Anthony McNally,
he senior member of the firm, is one o:
bo best stone and brick-masons in the
Itate. The Herald has heretofore bad
ome pleasant things to say about Mr.
IcNally and the good work he has done
1 constructing many of our largest
uildings, and with no less pride does it
oint now to the work tbat has been
) satisfactorily executed by this firm.
Ir. Young is also a master of bis busi
es*, which he has been actively en
aged in for the past seven years. Mo
rally & Young have done work on
lostly all the large buildings in Los An
cles. The job of laying the founds
on of Callaghan Block was one of tbe
trgsst that baa been let in Southern
Mr. Burges Beeves, the architect of
the building, is too well known to Los
Angeles people to require an extended
notice. Suffice Io soy that he is one of
those honest, upright, leading men,
whose profession, oarried on in the man
ner he conducts it, is a benefit to Los
Angeles. Mr. Reeves stands at the top
of the ladder in his profession, and has
designed many of our finest buildings,
including, besides the present block, the
Wilson Block, St. Vincent's College, the
Phillips Block and many others.
