Monroe, the genial Mayor of Monrovia, is just now engaged in rail road building in Mexico for the Mexican Central. Mr. Colijis P. Hi'ntington last night told a reporter of the Herald that the Southern Pacific would certainly build their workshops in Los Angeles, although he failed to name any time for their erec tion. It will be remembered that the company purchased a site for these shops over in East Los Angele3 about a year ago. The interview will repay perusal. It looks very much as if something will come of the proposition to start an Industrial Exposition iD Los Angeles. A Board of twelve managers has been ap pointed, and gentlemen of intelligence and energy are backing the project. The movement ought to crystalize into a beautiful building. We refer elsewhere to the public-spirited proposition of the Redondo Beach and Inglewood Com panies in this connection. There has been much talk in newspa per circles of the unprofitable character of Mr. Collis P. Huntington's Eastern railway investments. In a recent inter view, reported in our dispatches, that gentleman expresses great eat it faction with his Eastern experiences, and says that he could sell out bio Eastern plants for $10,000,000, which, we presume, means a profit of that amount. That ought to settle the matter. Thk Hoosier promises to take in poli tics the place until lately occupied by the Ohio man. Although Mr. Harrison has as yet sent ia very few names to the Senate, ludiana has already captured the Attorney-Generalship, the mission to Italy and tbe Consul Generalship to Loudon. This will encourage all the denizens of Hooßierdom to spit on their hands and haul anew on the official hauser, to shove the anchor home. They may be assured that their labors will not be thrown away. By telegraph we learn that the Brit ish Blue Book contains a statemei t which makes Lord Salisbury give the lie direct to Bismarck who, in the German Reichstag, had stated that England and Germany had proceeded hand in hand in the Samoa matter. The German Chan cellor dees not always stickle for the truth when he has a point to make. The Blue Book makes the gratifying fact ap parent that England took substantially the same view of the Samoan difficulty as that held and maintained by the United States. It is pleasant to know that we have at last reversed the style of thing of which the Herald has been complaining so long, viz., the importation of many of the necessaries of life into Southern Cali fornia. In February three car-loads of butter were sent Fast, one from San Francisco of 20,170 pounds, one from Los Angeles of 24,050 pounds and one from Col ton of 27,370 pounds. The San Fran cisco Bulletin, from which we learn these tacts, says: These are the first shipments of the kind by rail in almost a year, and we be lieve they are the first from Los Angeles and Colton. There must be a margin for profit in this trade. Fresh grass but ter in the East at this time of year is not plentiful. In view of the fact that we can raise in Los Angeles county from six to eight tons of alfalfa to the acre yearly, this region ought soon to be the champion butter region of the world, and we have no doubt it will be. Tub telegraph brings us news of the death of Sir Thomas Gladstone, of Faeque. He was the eldest and only surviving brother of the illustrious William Ewart Gladstone, and he has just paid the debt of nature at the ad vanced age of eighty-five years. He was a Tory of the Tories; and when, William stood for Edinburgh, Sir Thomas jour neyed many miles to vote for his brother's Conservative opponent. It will be remembered that Macaulay lauded William E. Gladstone as the rising hope of the Tory party. This was when the great English statesman wasayoungman, and before that liberalizing process had begun which afterwards led him to ad vocate, first, the disestablishment of tbe Irish Episcopal Church, and, in time, home rule for Ireland. Much such a change as that which the historian will fames in the career of Gladstone, took place in that of Victor Hugo, who began life as an enthusiastic partizan of mon archy and ended as the apostle of | democracy. J THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 21. 1889. Matters Municipal. Through an action initiated by Hon. J. Marion Brooke, an injunction has been issued against City Assessor Fischer to prevent his taking his office until the Supreme Court shall have passed upon his title. The cause will be heard in this city on the 2d of April. The selec tion of the City Assessor as the official to be enjoined surprises a great many people, because, according to the new charter, that official does not take bis office until the first Monday in January, 18110, Mr. Fischer thus holding over. Perhaps Mr. Brooks cited Mr. Fischer because, in the event of the now charter being sustained, there will then have been no interruption in the functions of any of the new officials. It is under stood that the action is based on the ground that neither the new charter of Los Angeles, nor any of the new munici pal charters, were properly approved by the Legislature. Speculation is rife as to who will be the new Chief of Police. Gen. E. P. Johnson having declined to serve on the new Board of Police Commissioners, it is announced that he is to be replaced by Major W. C. Furrey. This is thought to be conclusive of the election of ex-Sheriff Frank Burns as Chief of Police, it being regarded as certain that he will receive the votes of Mayor Hazard, Major Furrey and Refugio Bilderrain, which will give him a majority of one, the other mem bers of the Committee indicated by the caucus, the Messrs. Lindley and Knox, intending, it is said, to decline to vote, or to cast their ballots for some other candidate. There was some talk early yesterday morning to the effect that one of the five Councilmen relied upon to carry out this slate could not be de pended upon; but the best opinion is that, in a caucus held at 3 o'clock yester day afternoon in the Southern California bank parlors, everything was straighten ed out and the required pledges were secured. The programme for to-day is briefly as follows: The old Council will meet and receive the reports of committees and then adjourn. The new Council will as semble, organize by electing their Presi dent, who will be Councilman Franken feld, and will then proceed to the elec tion of the Boards of Police, Fire Com missioners and Health. Mayor Hazard has not yet made up his mind as to whether or no he will send to the Council the appointments con fided to him. These are the Public Li brary Directors, the Building Inspector, the Water Overseer, the Sealer of Weights and Measures, and the Mayor's clerk. After the new Council has elected the officials named, and heard the Mayor's message, th»t body will probably con clude that it has done work enough for oue day and adjourn. Much Ado About Nothing. Since the world began it has been the fashion of those who could afford it, and of many who could not, to entertain their friends, and at these entertainments the correct thing has been to supply the guests with wine. When the host is solvent and pays his way, this practice, if not carried to excess, is quite an inno cent one, and is looked upon as showing a generous and hospitable disposition. There are very few quar ters of the world in which the in dulgence of a little hospitality would bring a man in collision with the laws, but Topeka, Kansas, is one of those places. It appears that Mr. Marco Hell man, a young gentleman born and bred in the free air of Eos Angeles, and the son of the Lob Angeles capitalist, Mr. I. M. Hellman, had the hardihood to give a supper to a party of friends in that hide-bound city, and the result was an excitement only comparable to the Samoan difficulty. It appears that the Grand Jury has some sinelfungus advisers who got wind of the dreadful fact that wine was served at the repast, and great was the commotion. Says the Kansas City Timu: Mr. HelSnan, of California, will give no more champagne suppers at Topeka. He will, however, continue to entertain vigorous opinions of prohibition ways. The hospitable gentleman who gives the next banquet in Topeka must not forget to invite tne grand jury. Some people are very touchy. A Kansas paper has the following: Topeka is now not only called "Holy Topeka," but "Truly Good Topeka." This is since the Grand Jury began to investigate a private wine supper recently given by a young man from tbe Pacific Slope. Topeka can endure this mild irony with equanimity so long as she is perfectly conscious that she is the holiest city in the State. We are able to read our title clear, though fiery darts be hurled. Mp-ah! The awful circumstance is traveling over the country at a high rate of speed, as witness the following dispatch in the Chicago Tribune, dated Topeka, March 14th: Saturday evening Marco Hellman, a young Californian, gave a wine supper at the Copeiand to seventeen society men of this city. It is alleged that nearly one hundred bottles of wine were consumed. The W. C. T. TJ. was not asleep, and the case haß been reported to the grand jury now in session, creating a sensation among the guests, all of whom are sum moned to appear. Hellman was apprised of the probable trouble and has left the city. He is now at Kansas City, Mo. A requisition has been taken out for him for use in case he is wanted. Mr. Hellman, a young man, is to be pardoned for his ignorance of the fact that there exists in the country of hie birth a region so bigoted that, in the privacy of the dining room of a hotel, the placing of wine on the table would be held as an infraction of the law. Coming from a region like California, where hospitality assumes all its natural and gracious forms, he might readily suppose that he was doing an innocent and praiseworthy thing in following the usages that prevail in every civilized region of the earth outside of a very limited section of the United States. The whole incident is a fine example of a tempest in a teapot. The politician who said last fall that this CDuntry wonld go to destruction if the Republicans won,bought a new house yesterday. j The Exposition proposed in Los An geles meets with the approval of such of our citizens as desire to see this city and county take their rightful stand before the world. It is pretty plainly apparent that we must ourselves let people know just what this region is and what can be done here. If there is united action we ought to be able to erect an Exposition building on a scale so thorough that the very completeness of its appointments and the grandeur of its architecture will of themselves stimulate our producers to exhibit of the results of their industry, and impress the thousands of strangers at all times present in Los Angeles with a sense of the variety and value of our production. Such an Exposition build ing ought to cost at least fifty thousand dollars. The Herald is authorized by Mr. 8. 0. Brown to announce that if the citizens of Los Angeles will undertake the erection of a building on such aßcale, the Redondo Beach and Inglewood com panies will subscribe 15,000 to the work. This is a munificent offer, and attests the liberality of Captains Ainsworth and Thompson and their as sociates in than enterprising companies. These gentlemen have been largely in terested in the building up of Portland and Oakland, and they realize the condi tions needed for the growth of our city. It is a specially fortunate circumstance that the resources of Los Angeles county are so varied that we could fiil such a building with a most interesting exhibit at all seasons of the year. We rarely refer editorially to adve: tisements of a private or commercial character, but those of the Redondo Beach and Inglewood Companies partake of such a public nature that we make them an exception to the rule. These enterprising companies are really devel oping a section. Their plans comprise the building of wharves, the practical creation of a harbor, the erection of a hotel on Redondo Beach on a colossal scale, and the construction of a railway of their own, which will make hourly trips to the ocean. The principal stock holders o' these companies are men ol immense wealth and of a public spirit famous all over the Coast. They came here right on the heels of the "busted" town-lot boom, and have shown their confidence in this section by enormous consummated and contemplated invest ments. They have unlimited faith in the outcome of this county, and are in no hurry to get their money back. A commodious hotel, on the most modern plan, and nearly live hundred leet long, will be begun at once and finished by the 4th of July. Its appointments will be sump tuous and will embrace everything sug gested ! y the latest laws of hygiene. The Herald has often heretofore referred to the great work these companies have already done on their properties, which include, amongst other tilings, the charm ing settlements of Inglewood and Re dondo Beach. AMUSEMENTS. Camlllo I r»o at tbe l.os Angeles Theater. Lovers of music have a rare treat be fore them in the two Camillo Urso con certs set for next Friday and Saturday exenings in the Los Angeles Theater. It is at length decided that the perform ances are to take place at this play house, which no doubt will gratify play goers, as the house is central and well fitted for such performances. The star is known in both hemispheres as one of the best violinists of the time. She has charmed the best musical critics in all parts of the world, evoking from this simple in strument all the sweetest strains for which it has been famous in so many ages. "Tbe Only nit Show."

Official notification of the affair was received yesterday, the resignation to go into effect on April 18th. It is stated that Mr. Blame retires to take a position with the West Virginia Road, in which his father, James G., is inter ested, so that he may look after the af fairs of the line for the family. His headquarters will be at Baltimore. FROM WASHINGTON. Whitelaw Reid Made Minis- ter to France. FRED GRANT PROVIDED FOR. Sympathy With Ireland Will Not Do in the Minister at the Court ot St. James.

It was ordered that the hour of meet ing be 1 o'clock. Adjourned. SKETCHES OF NOMINEE*. Frederick D. Grant, who was to-day nominated to be Minister to Austria- Hungary, is 30 years of age, and the eld est son of General Grant. He accom panied his father durirg tbe war, and was in five battles before he was 13 years old. He was Lieutenant of the Fourth Cavalry when he resigned from the army in 187 C, having seen much ac tive service in Indian campaigns. While in the service he married Mias Ida Hon ore, daughter of an old citizen of Chicago, and has two children, a boy and a girl. Since General Grant's death, Colonel Grant has resided with his mother, and cared for her estate. John Chalfant New, of Indiana, who is nominated to be Consul-General to London, is 50 years of age. He is a native lioosier, and a graduate of Beth any College, Va. He served during the war as Quartermaster-General for the State of Indiana, and before that time had been Clerk of Marion county. Since his resignation of the office of Treasurer of the United States, in 1884, he has been actively engaged :n politics, being, at present, a member of the Republican National Committee, and ex-Chairman of the Bepublican State Committee of Indiana. In 1881 he became proprietor of the Indianapolis Journal, anil has con ducted the aflairs of that newspaper up to the present time. WHTOLAW reid's MISSION. It is learned that the nomination of Reid as Minister to France was entirely unsolicited, either by him or his friends. It has been the intention of the Presi dent,ever eince his election,to tender him some important appointment, and this, it was understood, would be the missiou to England, but for the impression that the earnest advocacy of Home Rule for Ireland, by the Triounr, would render the relations of Reid with the Tory Gov ernment of Lord Salisbury less cordial than would be desired. OFFICIAL MOVEMENTS. Joseph S. Miller, Commissioner of In ternal Revenue, to-day took formal leave of the employees of his bureau. His suc cessor, John W. Mason, has received his commission and will to-morrow enter upon the discharge of his official duties. Secretary Windom is said to be author ity for the statement that there will be no changes in the office of the United States Trersurer, now held by Mr. Hyatt, before the end of the present fiscal year, June 30th. It is understood that Joseph N. Huston of Indiana, has been promised the office when it becomes vacant. DEFECTIVE BENDING ROLLS. It has been discovered that the large 16-foot bending rolls supplied to the Nor folk Navy-yard for use in the construc tion of the Texas, do not meet the re quirements of the contract, in that the rolls are made to be adjusted by band power instead of by steam power. The contractors are now altering them to make them conform to the terms of the contract. After the rolls were purchased it was also found that their capacity was limited to 16 foot plates, while the bot tom plates of the Texas are twenty feet in length. This mistake was made in the Norfolk Navy-yard, but it will not materially delay the construction of the vessel, as the rolls can be used for a large range of work, and new 20-foot rolls can be procured by the time they are needed, which will be six months hence. THE STARVING CHINESE. The United States Conßul-General at Shanghai has informed the State Depart ment, at the request of the Shanghai Committee of the North China Relief Fund, of the distress existing over a large area of China. Thousands are starving and dying from exposure in Northern China. Relief has already been received from America and Eng land, but more is needed. Until the spring crops are gathered the famine will continue, and to insure spring planting money is required from abroad, as in the famine districts there is neither seed nor money to purchase it. < aught it at tbe lining;ration. Washington, March 20.—Ex-Congress man Peter Paul Mahoaey, of Brooklyn, is lying very dangerously ill in this city. Mahoney is another sufferer from the Washirgton inauguration weather. COLLIS V. 11l VI irWiXON. He Wives His Views on tbe nail, way Situation (Generally. St. Louis, March 20. —A special from El Paso, Texas, says: Hon. Collis P. Huntington, Vice-President and Col. A. N. Towne, General Manager of the Southern Pacific Railway Company came up from Mexico City and crossed over from Juarez to this city. Huntington said: "I will have the best transconti nental line and will make all needed improvements this year. Large ex penditures will be made. It' I can get moderate American prices I will use iron ties for my system. Leginlative inter ference is the cause of railroad stagnation and the depression of bonds and stocks. If the State has a riglit to fix rates it has a right to confiscate property and fix tbe rental of every square foot of property. Governor Stanford, Mr. Crocker and I carried the Southern Pa cific railroad bonds amounting to:$40,000, --000 for five years before we ever sold a dollar. It is through traffic that pays, and not the local freights of Ari zona, New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. My San Francisco friands are not inter ested with me east of the Mississippi river. I can sell my eastern properties for .$10,000,000. lam satisfied with my investments, and don't care to part with them. I sold one small eastern railroad because 1 got my price." A NOTSSf. BTBIKE. Tbe Republican legislators of West Vlrgtnlu In Muntly. Charleston, W. Va., March 20 —It is reported to-day that tlio Kepublican members of the House of Legislature have entered into an agreement, under a thorough canvass of tbe political situ ation, to refuse to obey the call of Gov ernor Wilson for an extra session of that body, on the ground that he ia not the lawful Governor of the State, and is therefore without authority to issue such a call. Their determination has reached the ears of the Democrats and has kicked up an immense hubbub. While the Democrats have a majority of one in the House, they are two in the minority in the Senate, and they are busy to-night arrranging to combat this new" move of the Opposition. It is likely that should the Republicans fail to respond, the Ser geant-at-Arms will be sent to arrest them at their homes, and this might easily precipitate trouble. Tin-: KX.puusiuiunT's tuip. An Enthusiastic Reception (liven Him In Florida. Jacksonville, Fla., March 20.—Ex- President Cleveland and party arrived early this morning. They breakfasted in the car, and subsequently crossed the ferry to South Jack-.onviilo, and pro ceeded in a private car to St. Aupiwfine. The party was met at the Union Station at St. Augustine by over 500 people, the the Ponce de Leon full band and a loug line of carriages, and escorted to the hotel. Thii< afternoon a drive of two hours wan taken over the city. To-night there wag M informal reception at the hotel and a grand pyrotecu'ilic display, with electric effects. The party will pro ceed to Tampa to-morrow at noon, and thence by ship to Cuba direct. A Rrutul Inrm-Waud. NEWARK, N. J., March 20.—While Fer dinand Mutter, a milkman living at Ir vington, was away from home this morn ing, and the older children at school, Joseph Salzman, a farm-hand, bound the three younger children and threw them into the hay-loft. He then attempted to assault Mrs. Mutter, but fail ing, knocked her insensible by a blow of a hammer. Salzman then ransacked the house. Mrs. Mutter, re covering consciousness, endeavored to make her escape, but; Salzman again knocked her down by repeated blows of the hammer aud then fled. One of the children, escaping from the hay mow, gave the alarm, aud physicians were summoned. Mrs. Mutter is not expected to survive her injuries. Salzman ar rived from Switzerland November 1, 1888. Costly Patutlnsrs. New York, March 20.—The second, and last, night's sale of Irwin Davis's collection of paintings, attracted a largo crowd to Chickering Hall to-night. The last picture disposed of was Bastion Le page's "Joan of Arc," which was started by a bid of $10 000 and run up to 123, --400, at which price it was Hold to a Bos ton buyer. Tuis was Ihe highest price paid for any one picture in the collection. To-night's sale footed up $208,315, and the night previous $35,645 —a total of $225,060 for 143 paintings. The second best price was $17,500, and was paid for Troyon's "Pasturage in Normandy." Successful Sealers. New York, March 20.—Messrs. Har vey Outerbridge, shipping and com mission merchants, of this city, are in receipt of a cable dispatch from their firm in St. John's, Newfoundland, reading: "The steamer Wolf has arrived from the seal fishery with 27,C00 seals. All the eastern steamers are loaded, aggregating 200,000 seals among them." This is an unusually early arrival, the fishery hav ing opened only on March 10th. The number of seals reported taken already is in excess of last year's entire catch, and the early return will enable all the vessels to make another, and perhaps a third, trip. New mining Syudldate. Hrlbna, Mont., March 20. —The Jour nal will say to-morrow that a syndicate of St. Louis capitalists have about effected a deal with tbe owners of the Weßt Granite Mining Company, whereby a company is to be formed with $100,000 in the treasury and free from debt. The syndicate is composed of the directors and stockholders of the great Granite and Bimetallic Mining Company, whose properties is immediately adjoining those of the West Granite at Philipsburg.

New York, March 20. — Ex-Mayor Hewitt and Edward Cooper, proprietors of the New Jersey Steel and Iron Works, at Trenton, N. J., have been traveling in the iron regions of the South for several weeks on a tour of investigation.

The Old Folks Annoyed at Pretty Paulina's Escape—Mr. Aubery Complacent. [Associated Press Disratcacs to the Hbbald I Milwaukee, Wis., March 20.—The marriage, last night, of Miss Pauline Fuller, fifth daughter of Chief Justice Fuller, and J. M. Aubery, Jr.. both of Chicago, at the Kirby House in this city, has been the subject of much gossip here to-day. Young Aubery formerly lived in Milwaukee and has man}' friends here who called to called to extend their con gratulations and before no9n he had re ceived many telegrams of congratulations from iriends in Chicago and elsewhere. Mrs. Aubery remained quietly in the hotel all day. and her husband says they may remain hero a few days until he can arrange for a house for his bride in Chi cago, where he has a position in the office of his father. "No, I haveu't heard from Washington yet," he said to-night. "In fact, there has hardly been time. Oh, I think the matter will be settled all right, for I think my wife's father will look at it in a sensible way." Mrs. Aubrey preferred not to be inter viewed, but a glimpse was caught of her as she passed along the corridor to her room. She is five feet five inches in, height, and has a great abundance of chestnut brown hair, which, curling around her face and neck, makes a very pretty framo for a very pretty face. Her eyes are grey and thoughtful and her no6e decidedly aquiline. Her lips are inclined to be full, and the general char acter expressed by her face is one of res olute firmness, which would countenance but little opposition to any plan which she had made up her mind to. Her fig ure is excellent, and her hands and feet —albeit she is from Chicago—are small. Washington, March 20.—Chief Justice Fuller declined to say anything to-day in regard to the elopment of his daughter, Miss Paulina Fuller. This evening he declihed to see uny of the newspaper men who called at the family residence on Columbia Heights. The Chief Jus tice sent out word that he had nothing whatever to say on the subject of their inquiries. The Chief Justice occupied his seat on the bench as usual to-day, and Mrs. Fuller waH out shopping during the forenoon. It seems probable their first information of the marriage came from newspaper sources, as Miss Maud Fuller, one of the elder daughters, when seen by a reporter for a local afternoon newspaper, expressed surprise at what she was told, and said she did not be lieve Paulina had eloped. The family are evidently much annoyed at Miss I Paulina's aciiotl. Miss Paulina is not well known in Washington. She came here last October and only stayed about two and a-half months, making but few acquaintances. She is only 17 years old, and left the city before the society season had fairly com menced, it being her intention not to make her debut until next season. She was fond of the theatre and could be frequently seen at the playhouses. She did not seem to like Wauhington and fre quently expressed her desire to be back in Chicago. The elopement has overshadowed all other topics of conversation in social cir cles here and much sympathy was ex pressed for Mrs. Fuller. Health of Cattle In New Mexico ALisuuuEßquE, N. M., March 20. —The Cattle Sanitary Board of this Territory reports that since the enactment of the quarantine law in 1877 against diseased cattle being admitted, no case of bovine disease, and particularly of Texas fever, has appeared among the herds. The cat tle are everywhere in a healthy condi tion, and are going into the spring and summer seasons in most excellent fix.

Northern buyers of young stock for maturing pur poses are in the Territory contracting for herds, which are permitted to pass the quarantine lines in the north without in spection.
