MRS. DUVALL'S PLAINT.
She Thinks She Was Not Treated
Right by Chief Burn*.
Mrs Clara M. Duvall has addressed a
letter to the Herald, in which she alleges
that she has not been treated exactly
right. She was an applicant for the po
sition of Police Matron, and says in her
letter: "I called with my husband on
Mayor Hazard and stated my intention
to apply for this place. He seemed to be
in my favor from his words and actions.
Never having seen him before, the talk
was short, brief and to the point, he
suggesting that I see Chief Burns. I did
so; told him of the fact of having talked
with the Mayor. That seemed to be a
great thing in tbe estimation of the Chief,
who said, 'the Mayor is O. K. in all
things.' Said he, 'go on and get your pe
tition and bring it to me, and I will pre
sent it to the board, and you will be
treated fairly.' My petition was numer
ously signed, by members of the
County Board of Supervisors, the
County Clerk, and such men
as General E. E. Hewitt. After giving
the petition to Mr. Burns and waiting a
day or so, I went to work and succeeded
in having signed another petition—same
as first —asking for my appointment.
When I saw Mr. Burns he said, 'You
will not get that place. Investigations
are against you.' Said 1, 'How, in what
way?' Said he, 'Can't tell you. The
Board knows as I reported to them. Go
to them. This I did, and Messrs. Bild
errain, Furrey, Lindley, and all pledged
their words that Chief Burns had not
reported one word, nor no one else
against me. They, the Board, assured
me of this. I went to Mr. Burns, and
told him he was simply desirous of ap
pointing some of his lady friends." The
communication closes by scoring Chief
Burns rather heavily for his alleged
action in the matter.
It Haa Not Been Baadea-The Ex
An evening contemporary stated last
night that Catalina Island was disposed
of for $800,000, and in the article ap
peared the following language: "The
purchase of the island is contradicted,
but it is positively known that the gen
tlemen have bonded the island for the
amount stated and that $50,000 has been
A Herald man called, during the
course of the evening, upon Mr. C. A.
Sumner, the agent for tbe island, and
showed him the ite m. "It is absolutely
untrue," said that gentleman. "About
ten days ago Colonel C. C. Smith, N. W.
Sampson and I. B. Hazelton, a party of
English gentlemen, called at my office and
asked for information about the island.
I told them all I knew, and they said
that they were thinking of purchasing it,
if reasonable terms were made. The fig
ures that I named to them lam not at
liberty tell you, but they are not $600,
--000, as the evening paper puts it. The
day after our conference they went over
to the island and looked about thor
oughly. Since they returned they have
been in the office once or twice, but no
financial transaction of any description
has yet taken place, and that
is all there is in it. I do
not even know whether or not they have
money behind them, but I should im
agine so by the wav they talked. They
did not exactly state what they proposed
doing with the island in the event of
purchasing it, but I inferred that the
idea was to handle it in about the same
manner as at present, only on a larger
Inquiry at the hotel where the English
men are making their headquarters in
this city revealed the fact that they were
out of town, so their side of the question
must at present remain unturned.
SANTA MONICA WHARF.
Nearly One-Half of the Jloncr Al
The citizens of Santa Monica have had
another meeting about their big wharf,
and the reports showed that between
$22,000 and $23,000 of the necessary $50,
--000 has been promised. Mr. W. T. Spill
man, who came up from the ocean city
yesterday, gave to a Hebald man during
the course of the afternoon some informa
tion regarding the proposed work. The
pier is to be 2,000 feet long, and
this will give it twenty-four feet of
deep water at row tide, sufficient
to enable the approach of any
vessels engiged in the poast trade. Its
location has not yet been permanently
decided, as there are several proposi
tions on foot. One is to place it by the
THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING. APRIL 20. 1889,
side of the present pier, which juts out
from the end of Railroad avenne; an
other to have it at the foot of Front
street, South Santa Monica, and a third
to have it at the end of the South Santa
Monicasandhitls. The public sentiment
seems, however, to be in favor of having
it by the side of the present wharf, and
that is where it will doubtless bs.
A BAILROAD SMASH-UP.
The Santa Ana Train Collide* with
a Working Ontflt.
The train which left this city at 5
o'clock on Thursday night for Santa
Ana, met with disaster before it had got
well out of Florence. It had made the
usual stop at that depot and was pulling
out again at a good rate, when on round
ing a sharp curve, the inmates of the
cab saw a work-train switching right
across the track ahead. Nothing could
be done but to apply the air brakes and
reverse the engine, for it was impos
sible to avoid the collision, and
this being effected the engineer and fire
men jumped and escaped with whol«
skins. The locomotive struck the con
st ruction train sideways, twisting into
debris half a dozen flatcars, one of which
was lifted completely over the passenger
engine, taking in its flight the smoke
stack, sand chest, bell and other fixtures.
Beyond the damage to property and the
delay of the Santa Ana train until nearly
midnight there were no bad results, for
the passengers escaped with a slight
shaking up. The blame of the
affair is laid on those in charge of the
construction train, which should have
been taken off tbe track at least five
minutes before the schedule time of any
regular train. Considering that it was
fated that an accident was to happen, it
was rather lucky that it occurred as did it;
for had the passenger been able to get
by the work train it would have run oif
an open switch which had been thrown
and not replaced.
To-night there will be another grand
entertainment and social by the Illinois
Association at Masonic Hall, 29 South
Spring street, beginning at 7:80, to which
everybody is invited. Besides a splendid
programme of musical and literary exer
cises, the President will read a short es
say on "The Cat." The other attrac
tions will include banjo and violin music
by the Loomis Sisters; a Dutch character
song by Prof. Hersee; "The Larboard
Watch," by Prof. Hersee and Mr. Fan
ning ; elocution by Miss Rose Ashmead,
Miss Rosa Harben, Mrs. Cory and Ethel
Stewart; ballads by Richard White, late
of Philadelphia; piano solos by Miss
Nellie Walton; vocal music by Mrs. J.
B. Torry, Miss Whitehorn and Mr. King;
W. R. Stoll and others; instrumental
solo by Mis ■ Lord, and an orchestra by
Prof. Elser and sons.
John Riley and James Drew were
tried yesterday before Judge McKinley
on a charge of burglary. The evidence
showed that on February 25th they en
tered O. T. Johnson's residence for the
purpose oi stealing. They were caught
and lodged in jail, and the jury yester
day, after hearing tbe evidence, found
them guilty. They will be sentenced on
John Higgins withdrew his plea of
not guilty of burglary in Judge Cheney's
Court yesterday morning and pleaded
guilty. He had burglarized a room, and
taken therefrom a pair of pants. He will
be sentenced on Monday.

propriate services were held in all the
Catholic and Episcopal churches. There
was a large attendance at the Cathedral
and at the Plaza church, and in the even
