A letter appeared in the Timet a few days ago signed Ah Him, purporting to come from a Chinaman. The writer of the letter stated that the games were in progress now in Chinatown with the sanction of Chief Cuddy, and that money was regularly paid for the immunity from raids. The only Chinatnan who rejoices in the name of Ah Him is an ex-court interpreter, who is now one of the lessees of the Chinese Theatre. He is a well educated man in his own lan sjuage and speaks English very fluently, but he declares that he can neither read nor write in any other language than the Chinese. As far as he is concerned tho letter in the Times is a forgery. He took the trouble to come to the Herald office last night to say that he was very unwil ling to be responsible for any such state ments. "There are no games running with the consent of the police," said Ah Him, ''that I know anything about, and none of the educated or more influential Chinese take any stock in the charges that are made against Chief Cuddy on that score. I have talked with a great many of them about it, and if anything underhanded was going on I believe I should have heard about it. There is a gang there headed by Ah Sam who re cently got Officer McGrath into trouble, who boast openly that they will do all in their power to down the Chief. They hate him because he knows them too well." "What about that McGrath matter" was asked of Ah Him. That was worked by Ah Sam. He said beforehand that he was going to do it and boasted of it afterward. I have heard him say many times that he can get anything done he wants at tho Mayor's office. Since McGrath was dis charged you would think this man Ah Sam owned the whole of Chinatown. Some of his friends started a paper to raire money for him. What you call it — a book—a subscription?" "Do you mean a testimonial?" "That is what you call it. They raised $7o or $80 for him and he bought a new suit of clothes, and has been showing off around ever since. When they raised the money, most of those who put it did so on an understanding that the removal of McGrath meant that gambling was no longer to be interfered with, and they look up to Ah Sam now as a go-between who will manage thing in the Mayor's office for them. If Ah Sam is engineer ing this business for those who are mak ing the attack on Cuddy, they had tetter look into tho record which he made for himself in San Francisco." The statement of Ah Him concerning the forged letter and the character and performances of Ah Sam, appear to show that queer testimony is being brought to down tbe Chief. AN INSANE PASSENGER. A Demented Woman Arrive, from the East. A very sad case of insanity came to the notice of the Police last night. A woman accompanied by two children apparently 2% and :>}.< years of age, arrived by the overland train from the East, and the train men said she had be haved queerly and violently ever since she boarded the train at El Paso. She imagined that some one wanted to kill her and refused to take nourishment or medicine. She had a ticket for El Paso in her possession, and written on a card was the following: S. S. Gillespie, Esq. : Will you please get Mrs. Parker a ticket to San Diego; also have her trunks checked. George Parker. She was taken to the Police Station, where she denied that the little children were hers. Later she was taken to the County Jail, where she could have better accommodations. The only information as to her destination was that she has a mother and sister at San Diego who she was on the way to visit. AMUSEMENTS. nettle Bernard Chase* Last Night at the Urand. This is the last day of Hags, Ike Wild cat, at the Grand. There will be a mat inee this afternoon and tho closing per formance of this attraction at night. Ilerrmann Next Week.

All eyes are turned to the advent of the Palmer Madison Square attraction for the following week. Dave Hayman is doing all that can be accomplished to make it tbe dramatic event of the season in this city. It will be a notable week in amusement circles. The Academy of music. Apple's Congress of Varities will give a matinee at the Academy of Music this afternoon in addition to the evening per formance, and a large attendance is ex pected, as the merits of the entertain ment have been well noised abroad. The entire programme will be given and the wonderful gymnastic performance of the Silbons in midair rendered in its entirely. The tumultuous applause of the audience last night evidenced how thoroughly the show was enjoyed. The Dime Museum. An entire change of programme takes place at this popular place of amusement to-day. The past week has seen large houses and the coming week is likely to prove more remunerative than it was. A reference to the advertising column will show how interesting the programme is this week. A Pleasant Nodal. The social given at the Fort-street M. E. Church last night under the auspices, jof the J. K. L. Committee was very suc | i-essful. The performers were Mrs. Van SintU, Mr. Scott and Prof. EaStman, and the entertainment # was thoroughly en- I joyed. The chorus was rendered by the | Choral Society connected with the church. At Santa Ifloulca. A pleasant entertainment was given last night by the ladies of the Santa Monica W. C. T. U. at Steere's Opera House in that city. The programme consisted of music, songs and recitations by the Mesdames Abbot Kinney, Swing ley, Ryder, Waller, Skyles, Guest; the Misseß Volkman, Grace Henderson, Ethel Skyles, Pauline Ryder and the Rev. H. 0. Judd. Ice cream and cake added to the pleasuies of the evening. fire at San Pedro. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a fire broke out in San Pedro that at one time looked as if it would entail serious consequences. It originated in a black smith shop in the rear of Sepulveda's livery stable, Which was soon ablaze and communicated the flames to Murphy's meat market and four adjacent dwelling houses, also the property of the Sepulve das, all of which were burned to the eround. As the scene of the fire was at : the back of the ballast wharf, near the head end of the railroad yards, and a strong wind was blowing, it was feared that the docks would not escape, and as there is an immense amount of lumber stored there, the loss of property would have been enormous. The railroad men all turned out to help subdue tho flames, , and their aid, combined with that of the local force, succeeded in confining the fire to the places named. Beyond the loss of property, no serious results at tended the affair. Chinese Cases. Earn Yoke, the Chinese woman who was accused by one of her countrymen of having made an assault upon him and robbed him of several hundred dollars, was brought before Justice King yester day. It was readily shown that she was not the person the man was looking for, and the case against her was dismissed. The Chinamen who had been helping themselves to water out of a zanja were fined $50 each by Justice King yesterday. Notice of appeal was given. A Libel Answered. The publication of a libelous attack in city newspapers of the 7th instant upon the President of this company will be met in the courts, where it will be set tled, but we deem it a duty to the public to say that the slanderous article re ferred to can, in another sense, be an swered here by the statement that the only company in this city making a gas containing the elements which, by in ference, they charge this company with manufacturing, is the old monopoly Los Angeles Gas Company, that corpora tion has, for some time, been attempting to sell its plant to this company that we might put our gas all over the city and thus absolve them from the few contracts they have been able to make with con sumers, but failing to get their extortion ate price, they open with a scurrilous at tack which squints strongly in the direc tion of blackmail. We have no desire to enter into any lengthy controversy with a corporation capable of descending to the nasty and noisome depths of scurrility and slander reached by our competitors, but take brief space to say that the Lowe Gas and Electric Company is not making the ; kind of gas referred to, instead, it is making the least deliterious, most pure, brilliant and beautiful illuminating gas ever made upon this Continent (which also as a fuel has no competitor), and is making it from pure oil and water only, which every child knows contains no unhealtbful elements. This is further clearly shown in the expert report pub lished by eminent chemists in this pa per of a recent date, in which they certi fied to the superior quality of our gas over that manufactured by the Los An geles Gas Company. The rapidity with which this Company is growing in favor and its product being taken by all classes of consumers for heat, light and power has sent consterna tion into the ranks of the old monopoly, which takes this narrow-minded course to check our progress, with the same vain hope they had some weeks since, when they tried to get us out of the way that they might return to $3 per 1000 gas of half candle power we are supplying. It will be well for the old Lob Angeles Gas Company to clearly understand that we are here to stay, and shall continue making and supplying a superior article of gas at a fair price, which is all that fair-minded people ask. Libels and slanders have never yet checked any honest and legitimate enterprise and they will not check us. We will always keep our rates as low as consistent with fair profits, which every consumer knows is better than getting an inferior quality of gas, below cost of manufacture, or even for nothing, for a short time. , In this connection we desire to ex- \ press our regrets that the City of Los 5 Angeles has no guardian of the public health for the sleeping babes in the cradles of gas consumers, other than the old monopoly Los Angeles Gas Com pany, who seem to have forgotten that their gaß has taken life within one year, and on December 25th, 1887, Mr. Har ness and wife, room 23, Stevenson House, was found unconscious irom in haling their gas and remained so until 3 o'clock the following afternoon, and would not have recovered had it not been for the skill of their physician; and again on the 10th of May last their foreman and three men became asyhyxi ated while repairing a main in front of the Court House on Spring street and came near losing their lives—this did not happen three thousand miles from here. In closing we desire to thank the loyal friends who have come to us and wel come those who are coming, assuring them that we shall continue to give them the best article with the best treatment in spite of lies or liars. Lowe Gas and Electric Co., 204 South Main Street. ADMISSION DAY. Washington Oardeus to be a Ciay Scene of Amusement. Mr. G. W. French has secured Wash ington Gardens for to-morrow and Mon day, which are to be observed as Admission Day. He will cater to the pleasure-seekers of the city in right, fine style.

Detective Leu Harris Transferred to Oakland—Gos«ip About the Depots. During Odd Fellows week the Southern Pacific will give round trip tickets at half fare rates throughout Southern Califor nia. This will enable visitors to inspect the surrounding country cheaply, and will also induce a heavy influx: of travel to this city. The same rate applies from outlying territory in and out of Los An geles, and a number of excursion trains will doubtless be put on the road. The Santa Fe Company also announces that during tbe week from the 17th to the 22 inst., it will extend similar privileges from Colton, Riverside, San Bern&rdino and all outlying points. STILL STANDING.. Tbe New I aril(-Shipping Arrange ments Better. No indications were given yesterday of the much longed for cut in the new trans continental freight tariff, and unless it soon comes the merchants here will have to order under the new charges, though such a proceeding will be sorely against their will. The trunk line trouble seems to be about dispelled, as the latest circu lar received by the Southern Pacific from General Freight Agent Gray, instructs the agents here to ship all goods presen sented to the points indicated in tariffs 9 and 10. Tariff No. 9is for New York business and East-bound commo dities, and No. 10 is for intermediate points. The Canadian Pacific has given orders to its representatives to quote through freight rates to all points reached by the American transcontinental lines and their Eastern connections at the differentials assigned by the Association. The latest issue is a statement by Chairman Leeds, to the effect that a rate of $1.10 per hundred will be in future al lowed on mixed carloads of salmon and canned fruits to all Eastern points. IMPROVED TRAIN SERVICE. Whr (General manager "tlcCool Went East. Mr. Dan McCool, General Western Manager of the Santa Fe, who left this city about two weeks ago, has been heard from. At the time of his departure the object of his trip was not stated, but it has come to light that it was to improve the overland service in connection with travel to this coast. A dispatch has been received from him at Topeka, in which he says he has secured a daylight service into California. During the win ter season the Santa Fe will run two overland trains daily between this city and the Missouri River, one train running to San Diego via the new line through this city and the other going over the old route via San Bernardino. The reason for these improvements is that the Santa Fe expects an unpre cedented travel into California this season as the host of inquiries about rates far surpasses that of any previous year. MR. HORNBECK RESIGNS. Meeting of the Kallroad Eean Association. A special meeting of the Southern California Loan Association, the railroad men's organization, was called on Thurs day night, Mr. Hornbeck, its vigilant and untiring Secretary, having an nounced his intention of resigning his position of Secretary. The news was heard with much regret, as Mr. Morn beck has been deservedly popular during his term of cflice, and only resigned be cause of other pressing engagements. Mr. O. K. Cushing, cashier at the freight office of the Southern Pacific, was ap pointed to fill the vacancy, and then the Board of Directors passed a resolution thanking the late Secretary for his efficient service, and the meeting ad journed. Een Harris Transferred. Mr. Len Harris, the Chief of the Southern Pacific detective system, and who has recently been quartered in this city, has been transferred to Oakland and Mr. Will Smith, formerly a deputy sheriff at Yuma, has been appointed to fill the vacancy here. Mr. Harris' many friends in this city will bear the news of his departure with regret as apait from his abilities he a boon com panion.
