Tne Quintette Club.
The Mendelssohn Quintette Club rrave
tbe first of its series of concerts in the
city last evening at the Los Angeles The
ater. Some time ago an organization
calling itself the "Boston Quintette
Club" visited this city, and by many
was supposed to be the Mendelssohn
Quintette Club. It is unfortunate that
such an error should have arisen, as the
Mendelssohn Club of which Mr. Thomas
Ryan, the original founder, is still the
leader, is an organization famous all over
the country and infinitely superior to any
other of like name.
The audience which listened to the
programme last evening was not large,
but it could hardly have been more en
thusiastic. The music rendered was not
of the order known as popular, neither
was it very severely classic. A quintette
in E flat, of Mayseder, at the opening, was
followed by an aria from "La Clemenza
de Tito," of Mozart, Bung by Miss Alice
Ryan. The young lady is suffering with
a severe cold and it is quite evident that
she labors uncer something of a disad
vantage in her singing. Nevertheless,
she was warmly applauded and re
called. A fantasie for violoncello, by
Servais, was played by Herr Anton
Hekking with magnificent effect. For an
encore, he gave the well-worn Traumerei
in a way to make an old lover of music
forget t bat he had ever heard it played
before. The marvellous quaitettein'F.,
Opera 11, Andante, of Tschaikowsky,
closed the first part of the programme.
A brilliant fantasie for the clarinette
was rendered by its author, Mr. Thomas
Ryan, in a masterly fashion. Herr
Wilhelm Ohliger, the violinist,
gave a fantisie on themes from
the opera of Fatal, arranged
by Sarasate. It contained a number of
phonetically difficult passages, which
were admirably handled. Two short
selections for the cello, by Herr Hek
king, and a valse song, by Jlarchesi,
which Miss Ryan gave in a very satis
factory manner, ended the programme.
The work done by t lie Mendelssohn
Quintette Club is quit j beyond criticism.
It is much nearer perfeclion than any
which an audience in Los Angeles is ever
likely to hear. It may be taken for
granted that every true lover of music
will manage to hear them at least once.
They play this afternoon and again
An Aconlzed Tux payer.
Editors Herald—Los Angeles county
is now the possessor ot an assessor who
publicly announces that he has "a con
science." Judging from reports which
come from all parts of the city and county
the next time tbe taxpayers select an
official for this responsible position, they
will take a man without "a conscience,"
and take the chances. I do not believe
tli at, in the history of the State, an
official has managed to gain for himself
such universal dislike as the present
Republican County Assessor Mason. Mr.
Mason's "conscience" is of a most pecu
liar kind. It resembles the good in ten
tiodg with which the lower world is sup
posed to be paved. His deputies are in
structed to assess for full cash value, and
this year they kindly inform us that
that means about tho price the property
would have brought at the height of the
boom instead of what the price would be
if sold at the auction block to-day. Every
poor man who is struggling to make both
ends meet and keep up his little home
will have occasion to bless (?) County
Assessor Mason this ye*r when he fir.ds
the tax this conscience-burdened
man has managed to fasten on
him. The poor farmers of Los
Angeles county will, owing to
the Mason conscience have to pay a
goodly share ot the taxes nf all the re
mainder of the State. The taxes due
from the wealthy capitalists of San Fran
cisco will, therefore, to some extent,
come out of the pockets of the people of
this county. It really seems as if this
man had a spite to vent against this sec
tion, which has honored him and given
him a position of trust. Even tbe State
Board of Equalization, comprised prin
cipally of men anytbing but friendly to
Southern California, have been co moved
by the injustice, not to say wickedness,
of his assessments that they have twice
reduced them. When this was first
done, Mason, it is said, went to San
Francisco and Sacramento and tried his
b st to keep them from taking any action
looking towards a reduction. The well
known story of the adder which was
taken to the bosom of the shepherd and
warmed to life and then stung its bene
factor would seem to come in appropri
ately here. To bear ont the theory that
Mason has really a spite, for some un
known reason, to the people of this
county, the taxpayers are referred to the
assessment books of last year, which are
in the County Auditor's office. As is
well known, we, have many absentee
landlords who own considerable
undivided estates in this county.
Go to the books and compare
the assessments on this property
with the assessments on the small
improved places occupied by resident
owners. Mr. Mason's "conscience," in
a number of cases which might be
quoted, led hitn to assess land of equal
value with a difference of nearly 50 per
teat, la favor of the absent landlord.
To the Daily Hkhalii belorga the
credit of having first "shown up" this
man, Maton. It may do no immerliatj
good to criticise hi arbitrary, unjust
nnd tyrannical wo;k, for, like tie la'e
William Tweed, he is in a position to
smilingly ask the taxpayers, "Well,
what are you going to do about it?" It
miy arouse the voters of the county to
hereafter carefully scan the character of
the men they nominate for this most im
portant office. It is to be hoped that in
the future Los Angeles may be spared
the moitifica'iou of having to bug a
board, composed of Northern California
men, to take pity upon us aud undo the
mischief accomplished by oue of our
own officials. Respectfully,
Rkpi hlican Taxpayer,

The Argument on the Injunction
Argument is in progress before Judge
Van Dyke in the Superior Court in the
case of Shepherd, against Donegan. This
caee was brought to obtain an injunction
preventing Contractor Donegan from
grading First street according to the con
tract which was awarded him a short
lime since. When it was proposed to
make a passage along First sticet over
the hill there were two plans presented.
One was to make a cut and the other
was to construct a tunnel between Hill
nnd Olive streets. Those who desired a
tunnel urged it on the ground that the
land overhead could be used as a public
park, and could be made an ornament to
tho city. It was decided, however, to
make a cut and the contract was let.
Mr. Donegan had hardly started work
until this suit in injunction was com
menced. The argument will continue
The Library.
Considerable interest is being taken in
tho Public Library by the new Board of
Directors, who hope to induce the citi
zens to take active steps toward making
it what it should be. It should contain
at least 50,000 volumes of books for
reference and circulation, instead of the
5,000 it now possesses, and in order to
reach that numbor it will be necessary
for the public to subscribe liberally. The
Directors are considering a plan whereby
subscriptions may be obtained and will
shortly make an appeal which, it is
hoped, will be answered promptly.
Director Howard has donated to the
Library eight volumes of the Nile*'
Wet hly Register, a valuable acquisition.
He formerly possessed fourteen volumes,
but six have been borrowed and never
returned. He and the other Directors
ask that those who borrowed the volumes
will return them to the Public Library.
Preparations are being made to move
into the new City Hall as soon as possi
ble, and Ie iB desired that there snould
be every assistance given ti the Library
prior to that time.

The state of tho atmosphere Impresses itself
directly ou the mucous lining of the uasat pas
sages, throat windpipe, bronchial tubes and
air-cells of the lungs. Sudden changes in the
temperature of the air are immediately felt oyer
the whole of this extended surface. Coolness
and humidity render the air Irritating to the
mucous membrane, irritation ends in conges
tion, and congestion Is the first stage of inflam
mation—tho parent of ad those chronic catarrh-
Hi aifectlons of tbe nose, throat and bronchial
tubis, which ultimately end in consumption.
Nearly eighty per cent, of the cases of con
sumption begin by congestion of the mucous
membrane of the nasal passages, throat and
bronchial tubes produced by colds. To that
est ut, therefore, consumption springs directly
from tbe damp aud changeable weather. It la
infbtmm&tory and purely local iv its early stage
—aulte as much so as inn l mutation of the eyes
or quinsy of tbe throat, and must be treated in
tbe same direct manner.
It is a rule of medical practice, established by
age* of experience, ihac every disease which is
local—that is to say, has its scat in any one
organ or part of the body—requires for its cure
the direct application of the remedies to such
organ or part. When this oan be done, the
disease is generally curable, and when It can
not be dono it is,if serious, generally fatal. The
same mucous membrane is spread over the
globe of the eye, lines the tear passage and in
ternal surface of the nose, covers the throat,
passes down tho windpipe, and becomes the
lining of the delicate ami innumerable air cells
of the lungs. When cold produces inflamma
tion of the eye In one person and acute catarrh
of the head in another, the cause, the disease
and the membranes affected are alike in every
respect. When cold produces a sore throat In
one person and congestion of the lungs In
another, there is no difference in the diseased
action of the two cafe?, or In the principles of
treatment required for their cure. It Is mu
cous membrane that 1b Involved in both cases.
But many treat these similar diseases of same
membrane widely different, and, as a conse
quence, cure one and fail to cure the other.
For the eye they apply eyewashes and oint
ments directly to the inflamed parts and are
generally successful. In the nose is applied
nothing to the diseased parts, and catarrn be
comes seated and is thought to be incurable.
For an inflamed throat they prescribe gargles
aud applications to the throat, and generally
cure. For the same disease a little lower down
—in the windpipe and bronchial tubes—they
make no direct application, but dose tho pa
tient's stomach, and. as a consequence often
fatl to cure Would it not be foolish to pictend
to cure an inflamed eye or a sore throat by dos
ing the stomach? Well, it is just as great a
mistake to treat catarrh and diseases of the air
passages of the lungs by dosing the stomach
The fatality of lung diseases is not due, as
many people suppose, to the malignity of their
nature or the importance of their breathing
organs. It is the inevitable result of feross neg
lect of the means of cure within the reach of
all. Properly treated by direct medication,
lung diseases are as curable as other maladies.
If any satisfactory result were attained by
constitution treatment alone in lung cases—if
they cured considerable proportion of such
casos—it might reasonably be doubted whether
tho direct treatmentof inhalation could accom
plish better results. But tb»e fact ts, they do but
very little good. Kveu in hospitals, where the
diet, exercise and general habits, as well as
their medical treatment, are entirely under the
control of physicians, very few well defined
diseases of the lungs can be shown to have been
cured by the stomach treatment out of every
thousand cases so treated. It has been so uni
formly unsuccessful that most people have
come to regard consumption as equivalent to
the hand ol death I In giving It up, therefore,
those havtng lung diseases abandon nothing,
save the certainty of an earthly grave for a hope
of life and health.
Now, look at tho results attained by the direct
treatment of the lungs by inhalation. In all
ordinary cases of catarrh, bronchitis and
asthma, Improvement immediately takes place,
and they go on to complete cure. In consump
tion the disease is more obstinate, but these
cases ultimately get well. Even in desperate
eases beutflts always result from Inhalations,
aud we cau point to hundreds of such cases
which were given over to die and pronounced
boneless, aim y e t recovered and are now living.
These facts are easily certified to by thousands
of living witnesses at the present day.
