THE LIBRARY DIRECTORS.
Preparations for Moving into New Quarter* Being Made. The Board of Directors of the Public Library met yesterday morning, Presi dent Dobinson in the chair, and Messrs. Howard, Jones, Davies and Hanchette and the Librarian, Miss Kelso, present. The following communication was re ceived from Dr. A. P. Dietz, of the Loe Angeles College: The French language and literature are taught in every private educational establish ment of this city, and there Is a proposition maturing to introduce a French course in the common schools. Our French-reading popula tion, composed of various racea, with a large element of home horn Americans now sup ports, as you may be aware, three French news papers printed in Lot Angeles. This constantly growing class in our community numbers to day, it Is beUeved, at least 5,000. As one of this class aud ln tho interest of all conoeruod. I would take the liberty In a humble way to present the claim of our French colony, be sides very many French readers of different extractions, to a commensurate supply of French publications on the shelves of the Pub lic Library. The accompanying catalogues, embracing every department in French liter ature, are hereby tendered to the Board of Dlreotors with the prayer that it may be pleased to select and procure some standard works of reference. While ways and means are being devised to Talso a book-purchasing fund, tbe Directors may. perhaps, pardou the suggestion here ven tured, that thousands of valuable volumes might be added to the Library by a regular domiciliary canvass of the town for donations of books. A vote of thanks was tendered Dr. Dietz for the catalogues, and a commit tee, consisting of President Dobinson and Howard, was appointed to look into the matter of obtaining donations of French books for reference. The Board ex pressed itself in favor of making the Library of as much benefit to French readers as to any other class. The committee on revision of the list of magazines and papers reported recom mending that several papers be discon tinued, and that others from the princi pal cities of the United States and Lon don be added. The report was adopted. The Board decided to meet with the Building Committee of the City Council this afternoon at 2 o'clock, to make ar rangements for the furnishing of the new Library rooms. The Board then adjourned until next Monday morning. A LAWN MOWER. It tieta A Young man ln Serious Trouble. Officer Lennox had an exciting ex perience yesterday afternoon, which he describes as being "lots of fun." As he came out of his residence, on F.ast Fourth street, after supper, he met a young man in the yard who had a new lawn mower, which he wanted to sell. The officer took a good look at the man and at the mower, and decided that by rare good luck he had captured a thief with the booty still in his possession. He exam ined the mower and asked the price. It was $5, although the tool was worth several times that amount. The reason why it was so cheap was that the store was sending out men and selling large numbers of these mowers. The officer said that the mower was not quite large enough for him, and that he would accompany the young man to this store, wherever it was, and exchange it for a larger one. The thief demurred, but without avail, and tbe two started down town together. The store was said to be on Commercial street, but when they reached there the young man started off on a run. The of ficer pursued, yelling "Stop him! stop him!" Mr. Lennox had to stop to look out for his revolver, which flew out of his pocket,, so the thief got a good start. At the corner of Bequena and Los Ange les, when the man had run three blocks, he was overtaken and captured by officer Del Valle. He was taken to the station and booked for petit larceny, under the name of Dan Mulling. EASTERN VISITORS. Arrival of an Excursion Party on Tuesday Slight.

Tuesday Night's t ire- Viewed by daylight, the fire which oc curred at midnight of Tuesday proved to be of a more serious nature than was at first supposed. It appears that Leibes & Co. had stored about $20,000 worth of cigars at the back of their store, and these were either burned or destroyed by water. Leibo3 & Co. were insured for $18,500 in the|following companies: Atlas $3000, Madgeberg $1750,, Scott Union and National $500, Oakland Home $3000, Traders' of Chicago $17500, Germania $2000, South British and National $1500, North American of Boston $2000, Frank lin $3000. Whistler & Co.'s loss amounted to about $500, which was covered by in surance in the Phcenix of London Com pany, represented by Pratt & Golsh. A Simple Absinthe Drunk. Benoit Giboulin, the baker who amueed himself last Saturday by throw- Zing half-dollar pieces through the plate glass windows of Wells, Fargo ACo's office and the Farmers' and Merchants' Bank, was examined yesterday as to his sanity in Department No. 2 of the Superior Court. It appeared that he bad been indulging in unlimited "Suissesses" (a decoction of absinthe) during the day, and that his vagaries were entirely due to that cause. The Court took tbe same view of the matter, and Giboulin was discharged. _____ A Woman Burglar. ; Hattie Smith, sometimes known as Daisy Smith, was tried and convicted yesterday in Judge Cheney's court of burglary in the second degree. It ia so THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 18, 1889. seldom that a woman is tried and con* T.ctedof burglary that the case coated c insiderable interest. It appeared that sjme time in February latt, Hattie, who was rooming in Mrs. Hildreth's lodging house, on First street, went into Mrs. Fish's room and took a blue ball dress, a corset, three handkerchiefs and an undershirt. These were found in Hattie's room on the morning after the loss was discovered, and Hattie had the under shirt on her person. She testified on her own behalf that Mrs. Fish, who formerly occupied the room, had left the things there, but the jury did not believe her, and brought in a verdict of guilty. THE BEY. E. W. JAMES. Serious Cliarges Made Against Him at I.one Beach. For gome days pant society circles at Long Beach have been considerably worked up over tbe story of the alleged misconduct of Rev. E. W. James, the pastor of the Long Beach M. E. Church. It appears that about a year ago the Bey. James accepted an invitation to occupy tbe pulpit of the church in question, and brought down his wife, sister and adopted son and three children to live with him. His adopted son's name is Charley Harris, and is 18 years of age, who it is alleged has acquired a habit which has interfered with the growth of his body or mind, and among other things it is charged that the Bey. James caused his sister and adopted son to oc cupy the same room in order "to save the boy's manhood." In addition to this it ia alleged that the Bey. James ill used his wife, although his friends say that this is not so. humors to the effect that the Bey. James has also been un duly intimate with some of the female members of his church are also floating about the town by the Beach. It is also related that he has been guilty of adult ery with a servant in his employ. Bey. Mr. Coles, the Secretary of the Alliance, said, in reply to a reporter: "For my part, I do not care to make any statement about the affair, although I think that some of the facts should be made known to the public. I have always said that Mr. James should never have accepted tbe pastorate of the Meth odist Church here, as he might have known that all his trouble with his wife would soon be made public in so small a place as this. It is true that he ac knowledged in the church meeting that he had compelled his sister to allow his adopted son to sleep with her, but I have since heard on the out side that this matter referred to the boy when he was younger than he now is." Bey. J. W. Van Cleve came down here Tuesday and investigated the stories told about Mr. James, and as a reeult he was compelled to prefer charges against him, which will be heard probably next week, and he will then either be vindicated or convicted, for the matter will be thoroughly sifted to the bottom. Bey. Mr. Cole also said that the charges would contain one for adultery, one for mialeading female members of the con gregation, immorality, and the story of the adopted eon and the preacher's sister. He said there would be also other charges of a less grave nature. Depot Jottings. Judge Egan, of the Santa Fe, is in the city.
