Mr. Biddle Talks About the Con dition of Affairs on the A. and P. Road. The Southern Pacific is about to great ly improve the local passenger service in this part of the State, for in addition to the flj'er to Colton mentioned in these columns yesterday, improvements are to be made in the traveling arrangements. A number of new coaches have been ordered and will be put on the Santa Ana branch as soon as they arrive. They are to be of the latest mako and fitted with every improvement devised for the com fort of the public, and though it is not yet decided whether ladies' toilet cars will be put on, this will very probably be done. The cars will be made with large windows and low seats with high backs, all elegantly upholstered and draped will constitute some of the interior improvements. Although the Santa Ana branch will be the only line at present to be favored with this wel come innovation it is not to be confined to that branch and will be gradually in troduced on the other local lines as the occasion requires. The Colton flyer is almost certain to be fitted in this luxuri ous manner, for the company is deter mined to make it as near perfection ap possible. A good many people wonder why the company does not run the draw ing-room eeat car between here and the north as it did last season. This was a very pleasant way of traveling and ap peared to be well appreciated and pat ronized by the public. The charges were reasonable, and for those who were only going a few miles and could not ob tain a seat in a Pullman, it was a very pleasant resouce, being far ahead of the accommodations produced by the every day first class coach. DOING WELL. Bcport ol the Bailroad Boys' Uoair Association.

Gregg, master mechanic of the Southern Pacific, last year's president of the institution, and Mr. Charles Hornbeck, its treasurer, handled its affairs, are deserving of the highest praise.

Biddle, division freight and passenger agent of the Atlantic and Pacific, with headquarters at Albuquer que, arrived in this city yesterday. In conversation with a Herald man about his road he said that the new bridge over the Colorado will undoubtedly be built and by its location will necessitate a change of track of about 13 miles. The Atlantic and Pacific is being put in first-class condition, many thousand ties having been distributed along the line at the weakest points and a big force of workmen is engaged putting them in. The cause of such bad time having been made, up to a recent date, over the Atlantic and Pacific was not, Mr. Biddle says, because the road-1 bed was in bad condition, but on account of insufficient motive power. This however, has been remedied and the freight and passenger eervice is handled as capably as that of any line in the country. He said that so far this season the ioad has not suffered much from the heavy rains, for although this is the middle of the Arizona rainy season, only one bridge has been washed away up to date. Mr. Biddle says that an Arizona cloudburst is something that cannot be conceived by one who has not been present during one. A perfect de luge of water descends and sweeping down the mountain sides with torrent like rapidity carries everything before it. Pullman Passengers. The following Pullman passengers lefl yesterday for San Francisco and the north: By the 12:45 p. m. train—Miss A. Bleuett, Mr. Rosecroft, Mr. Franken heim, S. D. Hayne, J. H. Langhorn, Miss McKenzie, Mr. Morgan, E. C. Moore, Jr., Mr. Newell, Mr. Ellis, Miss Croft, H. L. Van Winkle, Miss A. D. Battle, Miss Madegan, J. N. Race, Mr. Baily, R. Gordon, A. D.

Muir has returned from San ta Barbara. A Burlington special excursion train leaves this city for the East to-night. The Berkeley double track has been completed and is a fine piece of road. A carload of sheepskins was shipped east over the Southern Pacific yesterday. Fifty passenger coaches are used for the Southern Pacific local passenger traffic. Mr. H. B. Wilkins, General Freight and passenger agent of the California Southern arrived in town yesterday. Mr. J. M. Ellison, agent of the D. and and R. G. road at Colorado Springs, is in the city on a pleasure trip, and is ac companied by his wife. Dr. W. W. Ross, head physician for California of the Santa Fe system, left yesterday for San Diego on professional business. i Large quantities of sugar are being re ceived in the city, the average being from 200 to 300 barrels a day. One wholesale firm last week received 1,500 barrels. Train No. 20 from the East was bul letined 15 hours late yesterday on ac count of more washouts near Pantano. A special was made up here at 9:30 p. m., and sent out to San Francisco. One hundred and fifteen men are em ployed in the Southern Pacific car shops in this city aLd 110 men in the machine shops. One hundred and ten engines are in use between Sumner and Yuma. Mr. S. M. Shattuck, Colorado agent of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, has been placed in charge of that company's interests on the Pacific Coast, with the title of Colorado and Pacific Coast Passenger Agent. Work on the Southern |Pacific's new railroad shops in this city will soon be commenced, several of the brick and lumber contracts having already been let. They will be as large as those at Sacramento and will give employment to 1,500 men. No. 17 was over an hour late yesterday being detained on the Northern division. Something appears to be radically wrong on the division between San Francisco and Sumner as the south-bound trains nearly always run badly behind time as far as the last named point. CHANGS OF WATCH. The Reputation ol the Police Forco up North. Commencing with yesterday the police watches have been changed. Instead of the officers having to walk their beats eight hours at a stretch they will now be required to stay on duty six hours. The system adopted is the same as that at San Francisco. The watches will be six hours on and six hours off, six hours on and twelve hours off. Chief Cuddy yesterday stated that at the next meeting of the Council he will ask that the police force be increased The proportion of policemen to popula tion in other cities is much greater than it is here, and he is anx ious that the present good reputation of the force shall bo maintained and this can only be done by providing a sufficient number of officers to properly patrol the city. Chief Cuddy says that during his visit North he learned that the repu tation of the Los Angeies force was second only to that of San Francisco and he desires that this reputation shall be maintained. Chief Cuddy is a candidate for Sheriff and if he shoud be selected for that office the police department will lose a most efficient head. Boyle HeiKnts Democrats. One of the largest and most enthusi astic meetings held since the ratification by the Democrats of this city on the nomination of Cleveland and Thurman, took place last evening at Boyle Heights, under the auspices of the Fourth Ward Democratic* Club, Major O'Bryan, pre siding. Among those present on the platform were noticed Judge Bowles E. Taney, Judge Hunt, Judge L'Dg, Captain Lockwood, Major Fischer, Colonel Buck, A. McNally and J. J. Nuughton. \hlo quent speeches were made by Messrs. Buck, Lockwood, Fisher and Hunt, and protection in all its phases were gener ously discussed, and judging from the enthusiasm displayed by all present, Democrats and quite a number of re formed Republicans, the (supposed) in tricate question yclept "Free Trade," was fully and satisfactorily explained. The meeting terminated with three rous ing cheers for the ticket. A Contradiction. In the report of the proceedings of the General Executive Committee, I. O. 0. F., published in yesterday's Times, was the report of the Committee on Halls, referring to the Nadeau Hotel, stating that the managers thereof refused to assign rooms to expected guests in September next, and in consequence the Committee would not send any of its visitors to that hotel. The Committee desire to state that they have reconsidered their action, it appearing that the clerk of the hotel was not authorized to make any such state ment, and the proprietors, Messrs. Chase and Moore assure the Committee that they will do all in their power to make the affair a success, and that they are ready and willing to assign any rooms required and at the ÜBual rates, and that it never was their intention to show any disrespect or overcharge visitors, and further, Mr. Chase is a prominent member of the order.

LOCAL EVENTS. Notes About the Coming District Fair. JULY REAL ESTATE SALES. Political Meetings and Otlier Mat* ters of Interest About the City. Secretary De Camp of the Sixth Dis trict Agricultural Association was very busy yesterday afternoon when a Hkbald reporter dropped in to see if there was anything new about the fair. The indi cations are that the exhibits will be more varied and more representative of the products and attractions of Southern California than any that have ever be fore been brought together. A number of inquiries are received daily from in tending exhibitors tor instructions how to proceed and nearly all the space in the pavilion which is 30x156 feet is al ready let. The Pleasanton Stock Farm Company's string arrived yesterday and numbers such famous horses as "Maid of Oaks," "Margaret," "Direct," and "Gold Leaf." Mr. Hikok's "Arab" and "Conde," the fastest pole team in the world are on the ground and will be in splendid condition for the races. The track presents quite a lively appearance during the day as the trainers are busy exercising their horses which, hooded and cloaked, are sent round in the charge of expert hone men. All of the animals are doing re markably well and the competitions promise to be very close. Quite a num ber of brothers and sisters of "Bell Boy," who was sold on Tuesday at Lexington, Ky., to Mr. Seaman, of San Diego, for $50,000, are in the stables and will race during the week. The entries for Wed nesday's pony competition are very numerous and it promises to be a very attractive day. One exhibitor alone has sent a list of twenty-five ponnies for the premiums. The membership tickets have all been distributed, the last being sent out yes terday afternoon, and Secretary DeCamp wishes those who have not received the:r pasteboards to notify him as soon as pos sible. REAL ESTATE SALES. Transfers In Jul)* and Compari son* With Other Years. Transfers of real estate for the year to date amounts to $44,165,666, and if busi ness keeps up to the present standard and it is expected that it will be much better this fall, the total sales for the year will be very heavy. It is true that a year ago at this time the aggregate of monthly sales was much larger than it was last month, but this is explained by the statement that last year's business was increased by the speculation of the residents of this county who purchased large tracts of land for the purpose of sub division. It was not an infrequent occur rence last year to have recorded the sale of large tracts of land at as much as a million dollars, and these sales swelled tbe grand total. This year the result of the subdivision of these tracts is be ing recorded in the actual sale of lots and small tracts to Kastern people and resi dents who desire to build homes for themselves. The investment of nearly five million dollars in a month for actual residence purposes speaks more than pleasingly well for tbe growth of the city and county. Following is a list of the daily sales of real estate during July, with a comparison with July of former years: July 'ti ] " 2 " 2 " 2 " 2 " 2 » -2 il 2 « j " 3 " a ! » i...... i i C'.... i'.'.'.'.Y.

The First Ward Independent Demo cratic Club held its regular meeting last night. Owing to the fact that the only available hall in the Ward is under the control of the opposition faction, the meeting was held out of doors anf? was largely attended, The meeting was called to order by F. Stewart, Secretary of the Club, who introduced J. P. Harvey, the President. He explained that the first duty of every good citizen was to exer cise his better judgment when casting his vote. He then illustrated the condi tion of the various empires in Europe where despotism and conservatism reigned. He compared these facts with the way the voters of the First Ward had been ruled in the past four years, and dwelt at some length on the fact that every honorable man should vote ac cordingly his own convictions. He con cluded his remarks by stating that it was the desire of the voters of the Ward to bring before the public the fact that Chose who caused so much comment by their actions in the Ward four years ago, were the same who to day are antagonistic to a Democratic club. Mr. Boruck then ad dressed the meeting. His remarks were brief but to the point. The club will have a grand ratification on Wednesday evening August Bth. All voters cordially invited.
