THE DEPOT BALL.
An Evening of Uninterrupted Festivity. VERY HANDSOME DECORATIONS. Addressee by Mayor Bryson and General Hewitt—Tbe Rail road Reviewed. The dedication ball with which the Wolfskill Dopot was opened on New Year's eve and briefly referred to in yes terday's Herald, will always be remem bered in railroad circles as one of the most successful gatherings of the kind ever held. The proceedings were in the hinds of Paradise Lodge No. 74, Brother hood of Railroad Brakemen, and nothing that could in any way insure the success ef the affair was left undone. The depot building was decorated in a most tasteful manner, flowers and bunting being liber ally distributed, while the presence of railroad emblems added an effect to the e:cne that only those in the business could thoroughly enjoy. At 7 o'clock the lights were all turned on and a huge headlight which had been placed at the main entrance on Fifth street sent a glare along the road, lighting up the way for the many visitors who came in from the central part of the city. The principal throng came, however, from San Fernando btreet depot, where a band of sixteen pieces played from 7 un til 8 o'clock, a number of French selec tions being given in honor of the Coqulin- Hading troupe, which had arrived in a special car on No. 17, and waited here for fifty minutes. At 8 o'clock a start was made for the scene of pleasure, the spe cial train of six coaches which had been provided by the Southern Pacific being crowded to overflowing. On arriving at the Wolfskill depot a rush was made for the chief waiting-room so as to secure good seats for the literary exercisos, which were opened by Mayor Bryson with the following address: MAYOR BRYSON'9 ADDRESS. Ladies and Gentlemen —I feel my duty to night in opening this great monument of enter prise, one of unusual importance. Toe first question asked by a strauger, accustomed to the magnificent scale of th ■ Eastern cities, on his arrival in the c ties on this coast is usually • "Have yon a fine railroad depot?" Sau Fran cisco canuot answer this in the affirmative, aud it becomes a matter of congratulation to Los Angeles that she can say to-day that in ber lim its has been placed the handsomest structure of the kind on the coast. This is due, of course, to the farsigatednass of the Southern Pacific Compauy, win were the first to recognize years ago the high promise of the southern part ot the State, and were the first to make an iron pathway and open an artery of travel irom ihe metropolis of the coast to the small town of Lea Angeles, which through this and other more recent connec tion has steadily and phenomenally grown tv sire, until to-day it is tne great and wonderfal capital of Southern California I have a high admiration for the men who follow your calling, gentlemen of tbe Order of Railroad Brakemen, knowing how thoughtless, uiani less and ungratefnl the ordinary public is to the risks you constantly underg •, and how de- Xeudent their lives are to your intelligence and delity. lam very glad to be able to p-y trib ute to yen as a class, and I hope that the step you take to-night in dedicating this handsome t ongratulate you on the excellent way in which your arrangements have been carried out and I wißh your elves and your ladies a most enjoy able evening and a happy Mew Year." A thunder of applause rang out when the speaker finished and was echoed and re-echoed when General E. E. Hewitt rose to his feet to respond for the rail road. He spoke as follows: SOPBBIKTE.NOENT E. E. HEWITT'S ADDRESS. I beg to assure you that I feel greatly honored in being selected by the Brotherhood to respond to the very pleasing address just de.ivered by my friend, His Honor Mayor Bryson; but those who expect from me anything that even bor ders upon an oratorical display will, I regret to •ay, be disappointed, as I do not by nature or training posce-8 any of the attributes of a pub lie speaker. I have, however, put together iv writing inch thoughts as occurred to me as fitting for this occasion, which, with your kind permission, I will read in a conversational sort ef way. Fust, allow me to congratulate the Brother hood npon the success tnat has attended their efforts to bring about this re union of the or der. The assemblage before me, ln numbe s and in respectability, would be difficult to sur pass on any event of the kind, and should be recognised by you as a token that you have the respect, sympathy and good wishes of our best ettisei.e and also of your co-workers in all the departments of railroad service. I think this an appropriate time to take a brief reminiscent view of toe beginning aud progress of railroad building in Los Augeles county Prior to 186S all tbe travel was done by stages, or horseback or by private convey ance, and all the merchandise, lumber and pro ducts of tie county were transferred by teams But a great change was soon to follow. During the session of the Legislature of 1866-67, Gen eral Phlneas Banning, who was a member of the State Senate from thts county, succeeded in p Bsiag a bill granting a franchise to tho Los Anseles and San Pedro Railroad Company. The first diiectors of this compjny were General Banning, ex-Governor J G Downey, Don Mateo Keller, Dr. J. s. Grif tv, Hon B. D, Wilson, Mr. Wallace Woodworth aud Mr. 0. W. Cbilds. Mr. H. B. Tlchnor, a capitalist of San Francisco, was tbe contractor and monied power of the enterprise. Messrs. Banning, Keller and Wilson of the directory, and Mr. Tichaor, the contractor, have passed over the dark river. Theotber members of the directory are still with us, honored members of society, and I dare say, view with justifiable pride the results of the work tbev helped to In eugnrate. Ground was broken in September, 1867, and the road completed and opened for business ln October, 1868 This enter prise gave Los Angeles city its first apward bound. In 1868 there were less than a dosen two-story buitaings in the place, and its population, I womd say, did not exceed 5,000. There was 'h> nno East Los Angeles, no Bole •r BrtekTyn Heights, no city on the Hill, no street railroad—and no Colonel Banbury, Where Mayor Bryson'a magnificent block •tin It was far outside of the business portion of tbe city. Mo one present need be told what Los ADgeles and its surronndlDgs are to-day— or what Colonel Banbury's majority was. Los Angeles is the Queen City of the South, situated In Ihe fairest laud on earth. The Los Angeles and sau Pedrj Rallioad was purchased by t c Southern Pacific Railroad., thelatter company assuming control of tne property July 1, 1873 At Lang's Station, on September 5, 1876. the last spike was driven, giving this city all rsil connection with Sau Francisco. From the small beginning jnst outlined, behold what we have in the county tn-day. The Southern Pacific Company Is operating 222 miles and the C .llfornia Southern and Central about 150 milis. Besides these there are other steam roods ef considerable magnitude, aud almost innumerable street line.. We are also on Ihe line of two trunk railroads, which carry pas sengers and fieight to every important yoiut en the American continent. In conclusion, permit me to lay a word to my friends, the brnkemen. It is from the ranks of brakemen that conductors on all well regulated roads are ■elected, and It may also be said that nearly all promotions to higher positions in the operating department are from the roster rf conduc ors. There are Innumerable Instances where railroad presidents, general managers, general superintendents aid others la high position commenced their railroad ca reer as brakemen Vice-President and Gm eral Manager Towne and General Superintend ent P I'mere are among those who rose from the rank of brakemen to their present exalted positions. A good brakeman in nearly all cases makes a good conductor. I would therefore encourare every brakeman to strive for promo tion, which he can only attain by integrity, ■kill, sobriety, strict attention to duty andobe lience to orders. I wish yon all a Happy New Year, including those whose duties on tbe road will not permit them to be here on this enjoyable occ sion. I thank you for your at tention '' It is needless to say that General Hewitt met with quite an ovotion at the conclosion of his address, for apart from the appropriateness of his speech, he is a general favorite with all of the em - ployes. The exercises being over, tbe orchestra struck op a military grand march and to its tuneful strains all oi the dancers participated in a grand tour around the arcade. Then followed the usual selection of waltzes, polkas, qua THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HEKALD: WEDNESDAY MOKNING, JANUARY 2. 1869. drillee, etc., each being named in a be fitting manner. At 12 o'clock a banquet was served in the dining-room at the San Fernandc street depot, the "special" carrying the merrymakers to and from the feast. It is needless to say that it was a good one, for Landlord Reinbardt's catering has long since become famous. It was ■3 o'clock in the morning before the festi vities came to a close, and as the host departed one and all avowed that the gathering had been one of the most pleasant of their experiences. A great deal of credit is due to the officers of the evening, who performed their duties in such an able manner that not a single hitch occurred throughout the whole proceedings. They ware as follows: Reception—Colmiet E. E. Hewitt and wite, J. A. Muir aud wife, Robt. Hamilton and wife, O. McPeek and wile, E. T. Taylor and wife, A. H. Beekatz and wife, Sister* B. of R. R. B.

THE ECLIPSE. It la Observed by Hundreds ol furious Persons. About 12:30 o'clock yesterday, the time announced for the commencement of the eclipse, crowds of people stood on the curbstones and gazed through bits of smoked glass at the sun. As the moon obscured more and more of the face of the sun, the interest of the people grew, and at 2 o'clock there was scarcely a cit izen who had not taken a look at the in teresting spectacle. A number of enter prising individuals had prepared them selves with pieces of smoked glass, for which they found ready purchasers. One urchin provided himself with an oil stove and a basketfull of pieces of glass, and he sold out several times before the end of the eclipse. All sorts o! old glass was brought out and pressed into ser vice. One lady stood on Spring street with a wine glass, the bottom of which had been smoked, and by her side stood a gentleman with a broken window pane. A few minutes later a gentleman drove past in a buggy, driving with one hand and holding a small plate of French glass, the blackened side of which had evidently been rubbed against his nose and forehead. After the eclipse was over nearly all the pedestrians on Main and Spring streets had smudges of lamp black on their faces; but while they laughed to themselves at the appearance of others they were evidently in ignorance o : their own decorations. The day began to grow perceptibly dark at about 1 o'clock, and at half-past 1 the atmosphere had a very peculiar appearance. It did not become dark at any time, the sun being only three-quar ters covered at the most. The telescopes in the city were pressed into service and several were stationed at the street corners, where their owners coined money by charging "10 cents a look." At 3 o'clock a!! interest in the -henem"", had died out and tbe people went about their business as usual. ROBBED AT MIDNIGHT. How Dan fvlntr Was Entertained by His Friends. Dan Muir, who lives in a room up stairs in the Ducommon Block, had three friends with him Monday night celebrating the exit of 1888 and the en trance of 1889. They adjourned to his room, where, as they were all Scotch men, it may be supposed they filled up pretty fall on hot scotch, to say nothing of torn and jerry and other concoctions appropriate to the occasion. Early yes terday morning Mr. Muir appeared at the Police Station and told a sad tale of the cruel treachery of his guests. Just about the time when Father Time was turning over his hour glass and remark ing that "another year had rolled around." the three visitors rose up and pitched into their host, knocking him completely out in a very short round. In the melee the furniture was smashed, the victim's clothes torn, and his face badly pounded. A Chinese ser vant named Wan Sim heard the up roar and rushed to Muir's assistance, but the visitors made short work of him. After knocking him senseless and performing a war dance on his prostrate form they pulled him out into the hall by his pigtail ahd flung him all the way down stairs. This was not only hard on the Chinaman but it also broke the stairs, for the unfortunate fellow's bleed ing body struck one of the steps near tho bottom with such force that the plank gave way and caved in. The three visitors then proceeded to go through the pockets of their enter tainer and to loot Lis apartment. Among the rest of the plunder which they car ried off were a pair of valuable opera glasses, a gold chain, a gold locket and a stiver watch. The names of the three men who had performed this cruel act were given to the police, and Detectives Metzler, McCarthy and Glass started out in search of them. Two of them were brothers by the name of Grant, living near Olive and Sixth, and the other a plumber by the name of Samuel Patter sou, who lives on Hill street near Sixth. In the possession of D. G. Grant was found a silk handkerchief belonging to Muir and a pawnticket. A. Grant, Ihe other member of the firm had the- watch and chain and the opera glasses. The house of Samuel Patterson, the pi gui ber , was searched, but nothing wkm found which had any bearing on the case. He admitted, however, that he had been present at the time of the performance, and that he had taken a hand in some parte of it. "You are accused of having assaulted a Chinaman," said Metzler. "Have you anything to say to that?" "Well, I shouldn't be surprised if I did hit that Chinaman afew times," said the plumber. "I am down on China men, any way, and always get in a lick at them when I can get a good chance." All there were arrested and locked v > on the charge of robbery. The China man is in a precarious condition, and may die. In that case they are likely to have a charge of manslaughter on their hands. Ulrs.
