Tbe Santa Monica Wlinrf■ Editors Herald: Iq your paper of the 22d of April you state that it is the intention of tho Souhtern Pacific Rail road to build a wharf in Santa Monica. This report has so often come to us that we place very little confidence in it. Two years ago this coming May, the Southern Pacific Railroad Company applied to our Town Trustce3 for a wharf franchise. This was granted to them, and it was the hope of our citizens that they would go ahead and build the wharf. The two years' franchise expires in May, and they have done nothing. We have lost all confidence in tbe Southern Pacific Railroad, and we have come to the con clusion that if ever a wharf is built in Santa Monica it will have to be built by our citizens, and we have taken this matter in hand and now we have suffi cient subscriptions to guarantee us to go ahead and build tbe wharf, which we in tend to do, and control our own harbor, and all the talk about tbe Southern Pa cific building a wharf here will not have tbe least effect upon our enterprise. We intend to build the wharf, own it and control it. The Southern Pacific railroad has kept our town back long enough. Tne difference between the Southern Pa- cific Railroad Company and our citizens, is this: We see the necessity of a wharf and tbey don't want to, until some other company steps in and then they try to choke tliein off by saying what they in tend to do. Why did they wait" two years after obtaining a franchise, oefore they take any steps in tins matter of building the wharf, and now at tho expiration of that franchise come forward and say what they intend to do. It looks very much as if they were going to try and have that franchise extended another two years. If the Southern Pacific Rail road' will guarantee to build a wharf in Santa Monica bay, land their steamships here, receive and discharge freight—said wharf to be completed within six months after said franchise is granted—then, and not till then, v* ill they ever get another franchise from tbe citizena.pi our town. We want it impressed upon their minds tbat we, the citizens of Santa Monica, intend to go on with this work until our wharf is running out into the bay 2,000 feet; and if the Southern Pacific will allow their cteamships.to land there, well aid good; if not, others will come. And I here venture to say that our town will go ahead as it never has done before, and I will say that your paper has always been a friend to Santa Monica, and we heartily thank you for your friendship. Very Respectfully, W. Sanbob.n. Santa Monica, April 22, 1889. From Europe. Forty-eight European immigrants arrived at New Orleans yesterday, and left via the Southern Pacific for Califor nia. They are of many nationalities and the majority of them will remain in this section on the advice of friends of theirs here, who wrote for them. A party of eight Russians will, however, go on to Fresno. IN MEMORIAM. Tbe Ceraer.Stone Laid of tbe New Cburcb at Garvansa. Just twelve months have passed since the remains of the late A. R. Campbell- Johnston were laid in their final resting place, and Saturday, being the anniver sary, it was chosen by his widow as a fitting occasion for laying the corner atone of the Church of the Angels, which she is buildiDg on her son's ranch to per petuate his memory. The special service, which took place at 3 o'clock, was con ducted by Rev. Dean Trew and Rev. W. H. Dyer, and quite a gathering of people was present to witness Mrs. Campbell-Johnston perform the ceremo ny of laying the stone. Beneath the stone was placed a copper box, which, amongst ether things, contained news papers, American and British coins, ears of corn and flowers from the San Rafael ranch. The stone, which rests in the corner of the tower, and close to one of the prin cipal entrances of the church, bears the following inscription: "He Shall Send His Angel Before Thee—Easter Even,' 1889." The glass for the east window has arrived from London, and, judging from a painting of it now to hand, it prom ises to be one of the most beautiful specimens of workmanship ever seen in this country. The subject portrayed in the window is the resurrection, the de sign of which has been executed by Messrs. Cox and Buckley, of London and New York, and is pronounced by them to be the most perfect piece of work they have ever accomplished. Work on the church is well under way, and not many days must pass before the actual foundations will be completed. A POLO CLUB. A New Institntton for Los Angeles County. During the past few weeks some of the residents of Santa Monica have been hard at work forming a polo club, and having obtained a membership of twenty on Saturday last the first game was pliyed. It was a very interesting con test and was witnessed by a large atten dance, who thoroughly enjoyed the sport. Tbe teams were Messrs. Ed monds, Machell and Parker and Messrs. Allen, Proctor and Peyton-Carter and out of seven rounds played, five were drawn and each won one game. The officers of the u Club which has been named the Southern California Polo Club, are as follows: President, Senator John P. Jones; Vice-President, Mr. J. P. Proctor; Secretary, Mr. Robert Carter; Treasurer, Mr J. A. Evans; Managing Committee, Messrs. E. Tem ple Allen, John Machell and James Par ker; Captain, Mr. Allen. Senator Jones and Colonel Park have given for the use of the Club five acres east of the park. MAPS STOLEN. Cut from Reference Bootee at tlie Public Library. A few days ago, a lawyer had occasion to refer to a map of the United States survey of the Pacific Coast, and knowing that the reports of the survey were in the Public Library, he went there to look up his data. He found the books there on the shelves, but the maps which he de- Bired had been carefully cut out and car ried off. There was no clue to the thief, who had taken away refer- enre maps which it will be almost impossible to replace. These books through lack of room elsewhere have been kept in the reading room to which everybody has access, and which has not in the past years been very closely watched. The Board of Directors of the Public Library are very anxious to move the Library into the rooms at the new City Hall, so that they may have a place where such books can be placed where they can not be mutilated, but will be kept for reference purposes. THE JAMES TRIAL. It Will Commence Tula Morning at Long- Beach. This morning the trial of Rev. Mr. James, of Long Beach, will commence at that place. This affair has excited con siderable interest, and it is probable that an effort will be made to have it con ducted with open doors. A resident of Long Beach, who was in tbe city yester day, said that he thought that it was due to the citizens of Long Beach, and es pecially the members of the church that they be allowed to hear all the evidence introduced on both sides. So many rumors had been beard concerning the case that it would, in his opinion, be better if nothing were hidden. Rev. Dr. Bovard, of the University, will act as counsel for the prosecution, and Rev. A. E. Williams, of Simpson Taber nacle, will defend the Rev. James. Key. Dr. Cantine, Rev. Dr. Cobb and Rev. Dr. Warner are members of the commit tee to conduct tbe investigation. Gone -North. Mr. S. B. Hynes, who succeeds Mr. A. B. Wilkins in the Santa Fe's establish ment here, entered on his official duties yesterday morning. He stated to a re porter that he did not anticipate any im portant changes in the offices he super vises, and paid a glowing tribute t> Mr. Wilkins, who he said had perfected the department to each a degree that no improvements are necessary. Mr. Hynes left on the noon train for San Francisco, where he goeß to make himself acquainted with the railroad of ficials there. During his absence, which will be prolonged about a week, Mr. Wilkins will continue in charge. Hotel furniture Sale. H. H.
