Great Animal Exhibit.

Booths, and tho Re
W The '.act of space in the Herald yester
d«y cut the r. porter oil' in medias res and
left half tbe booths unnoticed, with a full
five column article of closely condeuscd
facts to tell half the tale. Among tho im
portant matters crowded out was a state
ment of the results financially. For tickets
the income for the first uight was $969.60. At
the candy booth SCO were taken In, aud at
the lemonade boolli $18. Below will be
found further dotails of these fascinating
Before going further it might be just as
well to say that the ladles are in great need
of llowers. All who have llowers of any sort
should send them forward by their districts
on the proper days. The season is a late
one. and the weather just now is uuusually
cold for April. The big wind last Sunday
destroyed much of the beauty in Flora's
realms hereabouts aud besides all this there
are but few of the neighboring towns taking
part this year. Los Angeles is lelt, with San
Gabriel and tbe Alhambra, Orange aud
Santa Monica, to furnish forth the whole
display. Pomona has nobly sent in a fine lot
of buds and blossoms to help. Bear these
things in miud, and send forward all your
choicest treasures to aid tho ladles iv their
noble work of charity.
The Violet Booth, Just north of the west
center of the pavilion, is one of the most
attractive lv the fair. Among other beauti
ful things there tho most noticeable Is a
fine American Hag. The red stripes are of
thellowersof the fine double fish gerani
ums that abound here, the white of the
modest and favorite marguerites, -.he
ground in tbe starry sky Is of heliotrope
and the spangles ate of fine golden wild
suu flowers Another very pretty piccp at
this booth is a cross of the lovely blue
grass flowers, wild beauties peculiar to
California, and whioh are really a species
of the lily family. Tho cross is encircled i
by a crown, made of beautiful marigolds,
each llower the size of a new dollar Tbe :
piece came from St. Pail's Kpiscoral i
church, where It was used on Easter day,
and was kindly sent in to tbe fair ou Mon
day. 1
Late on Monday afternoon Mrs. E. B '
Crocker visited the fete and presented to
theladlesa Bpleudid shield. It bears in j
lovely red tiowers the legend: "The North
cm Citrus Belt Sends Greeting to the i
South." Tho llowers all grew lv Sacrameu- ,
to, where the piece was put together by
hands certainly artistic, aud it was thou
shipped here by express. The several parts j
of the design aro made of choice and ex- ,
quisite roses, gcrauiutns, stocks and inari- ,
golds. The gift was a m ist thoughtful at
tention on the part of Mrs Crocker and >
is greatly appreciated by the ladies. ,'
This attraction is on the west side and .
down near the stage, close to the west wall 1
of the building. I here is represented a
bank of green and white, composed of the
choicest evergreens, palm leaves and smi- 1
lax for the i ne color, aud marguerites, ger
alliums, and Sweet Alice for the oilier.
There I« also a beautiful basket of the lust !
named flower. Here a bevy of charming •
young ladies, sweet and elllorcscent as tbi
wares they serve, are ever willing to quench
the thirst of tbe visitor with the sparkling
liquid iv some one of its seductive forms,
accompanied by a smile or a glance worth
more than the choicest beverage ever dis
tilled. The results of all these attractions '
will be found further ou.
Presided ovor by Mrs. Slram is next Dorth j
of tbe last described. Here boutonieres are
on sale as well as bouquets of other sorts.
There arc perhaps 100 varieties of roses in
his booth. Mrs. Straus has » rare and very
fine daisy known as the Parisian variety.
It is new here and is worth seeiug by these
interested in
As the Herald's space is greatly pressed
upon to-night, it will be possible to say little
more, excepting a few random remaiks
about the future. Next Monday night there
will be a great ice palace.

wheelmen will appear ln a bicycle tourna

To-night tho great procession of Queen
Flora's realm will he repeated. The uames
and characters were given lv the Herald
yesterday. It were vain to attempt any de
scription of the lovely scenes, either as the
participants sat grruped on the stage
or a= thoy passed around the hall, rue
effect was too beautiful for words to por
tray. The whole thi ug must be seen. To
night the procession will pass three times
around the hall, and si the little ones now
have the benefit of a little experience tbey
will uudoubtedly move more slowly.
Next Saturday tho first lino of the Great

sot is 9 o'clock. It should bring a good
round sum of money for tbe ladieß.

American Opera.
The National Opera Company's proposed
season here at the Pavilion, is occasioning
a lively Interest and excitement among
that class oi amusement seekers known as
opera goers, for tho reason that the grand
works ot the master writers of opera from
GHick to Dellbes are given.it is said, by
tbis company on a scale of musical excel
lence and spectacular grandeur never be
fore attempted by auy organization formed
in this country for the representation of
grand opera. This gigantic combination
numbers 305, and consists of Thomas' cele
brated orchestra of sixty artists, under the
leadership of Theodore Thomas. The bal
let numbers ninety-two, and is tbe largest
ballet ever seen iv this country. The prin
cipal singers number fifteeu, and are artists
of acknowledged reputation and wide ex
perience, and most of them will be heard
hereforthe first time. The chorus, which
is a strong feature with this company, num
bers 100 singers, selected after a severe
competition irom almost every State in the
Union. The scenery, costumes, properties,
electrical apparatus and other parapher
nalia for the spectacular side of the per
formances requires fourteen cars for trans
portation, aud requires the services of
forty-two stage carpenters aud assistants.
This fact alone will give some idea of the
iinmeu«o resource of the compauy in stag
ing tho operas aud ballets. The visit of
such a celebrated troupe to Los Angeles
should arouse the mußical community of
our city not to be behind San Francisco in
its welcome and support. Our local mana
ger, Martiu Lehman, who is canvassing for
subscriptions for the season, is meeting
with a liberal re-pouse, and states that he
will brlug tbe company here if hehssto
put iv part of the guarantee himself. He
has arranged with tho railroad company
to have evening trains on the nights of the
opera, giviug our neighbors a chance of
stcing the performance and returning home
the same evening.
"Nature in her visible forms "
The lady has wrought a painter's palletto
and brush of stocks, geraniums aud other
flowers She exhibits many Hue specimcus
of fuchsias, marigolds, amaryllis, galladios
ana nasturtiums A "horn of plenty"
made of straw and decorated with 60 varie
ties of exquisite pansies is very well douc.
Is to the left of tbe stage as oue faces it,
aud well up in front. Ou both Bides ol it
are immense circles of tiowers at least tan
feet high, aud tbe band of flowers at least
two feet wide. A flne basket of marigolds
and marguerites hangs within, and all
around are multltudts of bouifbets of all
sorts on sale for the benefit of the Ic'te- The
spot is a great center of attraction to all the
young gallants, more bsciusc of the fair
fingers sweet smiles and bright glances
with which the pining on of the llowers is
accomplished than for the beautiful flow
ers themselves.
To the left ceuter of the Pavilion as ono
faces the stage, is the cut rose booth. The
feature of this is a huge fan with rays et
least fifteeu feet long from the handle to the
tip, aud tbe segment of tha circle described
by its rim is fully thirty feet. It is made of
evergreeus, piuk gerauiumns, marguerites
and veroonas. On the stand Is a flue dis
play of roses and pinks. There is also a
gorgeous display of Wisteria, aud one of
myrtle ln bloom.
The manager, Mr. Colburn, with warm
memories of his old home In tbe bleak
north, has three scenes which revive vivid
ly the days of one's boyhood. One is a tob
bogganiug slide, whore the snow is made of
marguerites and tbe sled of geraniumus
The second is composed of a suowshoe aud
cap, the former composed of many llowers,
and the latter of bauksia roses and gerani
ums . The third Is a complete outfit for the
gtme of polo. All three are very well dove.
In tbe center of the buildlug is a huge
fountain.arouudwhichls the rose bank. The
area covered by this is very wide. The bank
is made of evergreens with large pillows of
ra-.es at intervals. The renorter counted
two of these cushions and found close on to
1000 rosea of many varieties iv each. The
entire exhibit is probably mado up of some
16,000 to 20,000 roses. Tbe blooms are
changed about every other day.
To the right of thia is the great floral ship,
"Siuthern California." The masts are of
poles covered with evergreens; the rigging
of Hue wreaths of tbe same material; the
hull Is of geraniums, and the sea of pansies;
she is freighted with a cargo of citrus fruit.
Tbe craft is very rakish in design aud beau
tiiul in execution. She measures 13 feet 6
inches over all. The work was done by
Mrs. D. X.Miles, Mrs. J S.Cbapmanand Miss
Yokum, all of deft fingers and artistic taste.
Mr. Donald Ames rendered very efficient
aid to tue ladies in this and in many other
matters. He is so obligingly willing and so
Near the door is tho booth set apart for
bulbous plauts. A visit to tbis will well
repay any one who loves beautiful flowers.
Among the things noticed there aro several
varieties of the following favorite llowers;
Amaryllis, iris, double poppy, pink peonies,
eseallouia llorlbuuda, oruithßgalum umbel
latum—black-eyed Susau-Ixias, rauunculi,
bougalmvillla spendons, cyclamen or shoot
ing star, and mauy othors.
There Is near the front a iloral slipper
It is large enough to hold tbe old worn iv of
Mother Goose fame and all her hungry
tribe, but so lovely that the clamorous
urchins would probably have starved with
great satisfaction if theirs had been so
beautiful a home. The affair is a x feet
long—big enough for tho Flying liutcumau
of the "seven-league boots," or Finn Mc-
Cool wheo he Btepped from the Giant's
Causeway lv tbe north ol Ireland
to Manchester ln England, sceop
ing out Lough Roa aud casting
it Into the sea, where it made a stepping
stone for him there, and where it remains
now aa the Isle of Man. But it would he too
handsome for either the Dutchman or tbe
Irishman. Tbe heel of the slipper Is o
marigolds, the rest of geranluma, with a
smllax border around the mouth.

The Railroad Company held
Criminally Responsible.
The Majority of Witnesses Testify
That They Did Not Hear
the Bell Ring.
The deplorable accident of .Tuesday af
ternoon was the subject of general discus
sion all day yesterday, and it was noticeable
that the travel to East Los Angeles had ma
terially decreased. The ladies especially
wcra timid, and the conductors ou tho
street cais state that travel to and from the
depots was much lesa than it has beeu
heretofore, [a some instances, passengers
wheu nearingthe trpeks and crossings of
the railroads, showed evidences of timidity
which were uot observed before. Some of
them even rose to their feet upon the ap
pearance of an engine or train comlug lo
their direction, no matter how fa- away.
It was ascertained from Dr. Kurtz yester
day evening that Miss Wiustanley had b. en
pretty severely injured, and he was not
prepared lo state that she Internally
injured. He said that there was but little
doubt but her spine had beeu severely
wrenched, aud it was doubtful
whether she would bo able to use her
left eye agaiu but there had been no frac
ture of the spinal column for there was no
paralysis of tne lower extremities.
The Inquest was concluded last n'ght and
the Corouer's jury found that Mrs. Louisa
It. Cox, a native of Canada, 31 years of age,
had come to her death by "being crusl-el
under a moving train by the L. A. A t, (1.
V. K. It. Co., as iv our opinion tho said
company diil uot exercise the necessaiy
precautions to prevent acoidents. We hold
that, the said compauy are criminally re
soonsible for tho death of satd Louisa R
i' ix, and in our opiuion the employes of
satd company are exonerated, and we ,
would most respectfully urge upon our
City Couucil the necessity of enforcing .
such measures as will hereaitcr preclude ;
the possibility of such accidents."

Taney, Acting Coroner. .
The witnesses examined yesterday testi- j
fled as follows: '
A. J. Hall testified that ho was standing i
about the north end of the depot wheu the
train came backing slowly down, with no
bell ringing. He supposed it would stop be
fore reaching the crossing. He heard a
startled cry, and looking toward the train i
he saw the horse, and the uaud of the driver j
apply the whip. Tncn he heard the crack (
of the carriage. He pissed to the rear of the j
train and saw the mangled form of a woman ,
and heard her screams. Ho went back to
the depot after some water. He first saw
the lady who was uot killed, and later, the •
body of the woman who was killed. The
custom of the train was tostop before reach
ing the middle of the road. There was no
oue signalling. Heard no bell ringing. Saw
no oue ou tbe back part of the traiu. Some
ouo suug out "look out," but he did not
think it was anyone cojnected with the
Mart Johnson was standing at the last bus
when the accident occurred. He noticed
the train backing up at a pretty lively gnit
aud was going to jump on the ilrst platform
when he heard a lady scream. A man was
standing at the side door of the baggage
car waving his hands. When he hoard tne
scream he turned aud saw the horse just
going over the track, aud the buggy
reached the track just as the end of the
baggage car came to tbe same spot. The
buggy moved ou three feet aud caved in
aud was then shoved thirty-five feet. Wit
ness heard no bell and suw no one en tbe
back of the traiu.
Thos Elsteu was waiting at the depot to
take tint traiu wheu he heard 'ome one
cry out, and he turned his head aud saw
the roar part of the buggy, which was gciug
to Hast Los Augeles. Ho rau toward the
street aud saw the buggy slldlug on the
track, and h? helped to t-ke the ladies out
irom the wreck. He heard uo bell, saw no
one on the cud of the train and noticed no
WD 95
signal man.
J. M. Methvlu was at the depot when the
accident happoned. He saw the train buck
down aud saw the buggy driven up. Ihe
horse had stoppod wheu he first got cv the
railroad and tbe driver shook tho lines and
the horse jumped across, aud the cars
caught the buggy and pushed it about thirty
feet. Before thetrain ttruck tho buggy there
was a brakeman who came up beside wit
ness and signaled tbe traiu to stop at its
usual stopping place. Witness saw him
jump up on the steps of the carand pull the
hell cord with both hauds. The engineer
could not see tho end of the train from his
Btation on the locomotive. He stopped as
soon as he could reverse the engine. Wit
ness heard no bell. He had signalled Mr.
Cox to stop, but he thought he was not seen.
He was there to keep the street open, and
there was no cue that be knew ol at the
bridge to warn people.
B.C.Holmes testified that he was at the
.rain with his hack, and taw tho horso aud
buggy with tha people iv it drive up to the
3rossing. Tho train was backing down at
[he same time, aud it caught tbe carriage ou
;hc track aud overturned it. There wa* no
oue on the back of the trair. He heard no
bell. Ihe traiu came so rapidly and silently
.hut if a person were standing back towards
it he would have hardly noticed it. Tnere
was no trainman iv sight. There is never
my one there to signal the train, which
reuerally stops before it gets to the road,
i'his time it came down more rapidly than
ivas the custom. The cars could not have
been seen by auy persou driving on account
iS the depot biding the view.
D. M, True testified that he was standing
in the east side of the track, about two oar
lengths from the end of the bridge. The
train backed down slowly at the rate of two
31 three miles an hour. Just as the end of
It reached the bridge he saw a horse mov
ing on a half trot. The car struck tbe car
riage about tbe same time be saw the lines
being raised. The car then crushed the
buggy aud the occupants, aud moved them
about twenty-five feet. As the traiu struck
the vehicle he turned to look towards tbe
engine to see if be could see tbe engineer,
and as he came in sight witness motioned
to him to stop. Did not see a brakeman on
tbe train. Did not hear a bell. The en
giucer could not see a signal. The accident
could not have beeu avoided unless the
brakemau was where he could give a signal,
the trainmen sworn.
W A. Baldwin, engineer of tbe train,
testified that ho was in charge of the train
which stood on the fide tiv.ck about 4:40
P.M. Ho got orders to b lck mi to tne urn in
line. In order to do so he hud to back past
the depot to get out of the switch. Before
he got out on the main line he got a signal
te ttop from the bell and from the flreinau.
He applied brakes and reversed the engine
as quick as he could. He was looking buck
all the time. The yardman ordered him to
back down as Is customary. The length of
the traiu made ia obligatory for him to
bock down past the bridge so to clear the
switch. Did not see any buggy or person
approach the train. There is usually some
one on the back cud of tbe traiu. The train
ran about fifteen feet alter he received the
signal. The train was running abouttwoor
three miles au hour. The bell of the engine
was ringing all the time they were moving
bick. Did not kuow at tho time whether
the last car had passed tbe depot or uot.
Thomas Carter, the fireman, testified that
he was on the engine, and that the engineer
got tbe signal to back out of tbeswitcn ou
to the main track. He obeyed the signal.
When they were about half way out of the
switch tho rear brakeman gave the signal to
stop. He told the engineer, and b • stopped
as quick as possible. There was also a
stgual bell about the same time. He rang
the bell on tlie engine as soon as she started
up. The brakeman was standing in the
baggage-car door, and he c mid see plainly.
That is his station on the train. It is not
customary to have a switchman at tbe
bridge wheu tbe train Is backing.
Wm. Keplinger, Ihe switchman, testified
that he made up the train, and when
it started he was walking behind the
rear coach. He walked in that position to
opposl.e thederot and motioned the pas
sengers off the track. He then got on the
rear platform of tbe baggage car, and as
he stepped up he saw the horse's head
coming He then pulled tho bell cord from
the platform and then set the brake and hal
lowed to the man in the buggy to stop,
when he give the slgnsl to sup the train
was about six feet from the buggy. He also
made the signal from the side of the car.
The baggage master gent r illy volunteers to
watch the bridge when trains are backing
over the roadway. The baggage master was
standing between where tne carriages
stand and tho track. The bell was ringing
all the time the train was moviug. The
engineer backed down by his orders.
Rusk Harris testified that be knew de
ceased and believed she was a Tlatlve of
Peter Smith testified that the accident
had hnppened and that he saw no one on
the end of tbe tral •. He heard no bell ring
ing. If it bad he would have heard It.
