AGAIN IN TROUBLE. Stewart Arrested tor Dlaturblusr tne Peace. W. W. Stewart, the attorney who has figured more or less prominently at fre quent intervals during the past few months, was arrested yesterday while in bed in hit wife's room, at the New Den ison House. No. 316 South Main street, by Officer Farmer, on a warrant charg ing him with having disturbed the peace. Hs was in a state of eemi-intoxication, but the officer compelled him to get up and dress, and accompany bim to the station. It being nearly time for the Police Court to open, Stewart was not locked up, but was tiken upstairs and accommodated with a seat in the court room. On appearing before Police Judge Owens, the defendant was arraigned and announced himself as ready for trial im mediately, whereupon the cas9 was called. The complainant, Mrs. Louisa Strotbotf, the proprietress of the New Denison House, alleged that on Thurs day night, about 8:30 o'clock, Stewart came to see his wife, who occupied a room in the New Denison. He was very drunk and in an ugly frame of mind. The witness stood upon the landing and endeavored to persuade him to leave the house, but he created such a disturbance as to attract the attention of outsiders for the distance of half a block away. After pushing past the witness towards bis wife's room, Stewart smashed a win dow with his umbrella, soon after which he left the place. He again made hie appearance about midnight, more intoxicated than before and insisted upon seeiDg his wife, i Not wishing to have tbe rest of her lodgers disturbed; the witness attempted to get rid of him by humoring his whims. He attempted to force bis way into an empty room, in which he believed his wife to be, and after he had almost kicked the door down Mrs. Strothoff got her keys and convinced him that it was empty. A number of similar perform ances engaged the attention of the land lady until about 4 a. m., when he again left. A numDer of witnesses corrobo rated this testimony, and the Court round the defendant guilty as charged. He was ordered to appear for sentence at 10 o'clock this morning, bail being re quired meanwhile in the sum of $100. Stewart encountered some difficulty in procuring sureties for this amount, but finally, about 5:30 o'clock, secured the services of H. J. A. Stuhr and Henry Norman, the landlords of his own room at 32'-a South Main street, whereupon he was released from custody. CHINESE PRACTICE. .* Young tilrl Drougnt from Santa Barbara. Ia the Township Court yesterday a pretty Chinese girl named Ah Moy, alias Guke Oy, appeared before Justice P. E. King, sitting for Justice Savage, to answer a charge of embezzlement. She was charged by Ah Wing with hav ing, on the.lOth of January last, appro priated to her own u'e a gold watch and chain, valued at $80. When the case was called for examination yesterday it wae learned that the complainant had left the city, and could not therefore be found, whereupon the Court dismissed the case and discharged the defendant. The case is one of a kind which ia very often practiced in tbis State, namely, that of putting the machinery of the jus tices' courts into motion to secure the ends of designing Chinamen. In this instance Ah Wing, the complainant, was employed by a wealthy Chinese mer chant to swear to a complaint against the girl, who was in a house of prostitution in Santa Barbara, for the purpose of get ting her into this city. But for the effi cient aid of the law this would nf course entail the necessity of kidnaping her; but there is too much risk attached to such a proceeding, and tbe wily heathen has too much respect for himself to court danger, when he can, by simply taking an oath, procure an officer to do it for him. On arrival here the defendant was arraigned and placed under bonds,which were at once secured by the friends of the complaining witness, who is further paid to disappear about the time when the case comes up for trial. The case is of course dismissed for want of prosecu tion and generally the defendant be comes the property of the man who in stigated the prosecution. HOPE STREET. A Compromise tirade Accepted by tne Contestants. The grade of Hope street between Second and Fourth has been a matter of dispute for some time past, and yester day the property-owners representing both sides of the question at issue ap peared before the Board of Public Works and gave their views on the subject. Messrs. Dorland, Stewart, Cossett. Lily, Cahill, McKenzie and Sparr argued on one side of the question, and Messrs. West, Foss, Wright and Mrs. Westlake on the other. There were others present who did not join in the argument, and after the differ ent grades had been discussed at some length, the following motion was made by Mr. Dorland and seconded by Mr. Stewart: Tbat a compromise grade be established at the intersection of Third snd Hope streets, making the northeast snd southeast corners 93.00 feet above the datum plane, and the northwest and southwest corners 39.00 feet above the datum plane, provided the change does not interfere with the contract. The above motion was voted on by all inter ested parties present, and was passed by an almost unanimous vote, only one dis senting vote being cast. In view of the above, the board will recommend that the City Engineer be instructed to present aa ordinance of in tention to change the grade of Hope Street, between Second and Fourth streets, in accordance with the above motion. A Course of Lectures. Prof. John Dickinson, of the Methodist University of Southern California, has consented to deliver a course of lectures in this city. He was addressed a com munication signed by Messrs. E. F. Spence, I. Hellman, S. M. White, John Mansfield, H. Sinsabangh, W. M. Fries ner, W. W. Seaman, John B. Haynes, Francis S. Haynes, A. M. Hough, J. P. Widney, E. W. Jones and Eli Fay. The communication reads as follows: "The undersigned believing that scien tific knowledge is not only a source of very great satisfaction, but also one of the best of all intellectual tonics, and be ing fully persuaded that Prof. Dickinson is eminently qualified to lead the truth seeking over wide and diversified scien tific fields, would respectfully ask him to deliver, at such time and place as he may name, a course of five lectures on such subjects as would be most interesting snd profitable to a mis cellaneous audience." To this Prof. Dickinson replied as fol lows: "Gbstlbmin—Yonr very kind invita tion to deliver a few lectures in this city THE LO3 AISfGELES DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MURKOTQ, DECEMBER 14 1889. on some branch of science is at hand. It will give me great pleasure to accede to your request. I BUggest tbe following list of subjects: 'A Hurried Glance at Mother Earth; 'A Close Look at the Earth's Crust;' 'Minerals: Their Geome try and Chemistry;' 'Tbe Moon,' and 'The Geology of the Stars,' the lectures to be given st the Unitarian church on successive evenings, beginning December 20th. Respectfully yours, "John Dickinson." News I'roui Mexico. Editors Herald—Mexico generally and Sonora particularly has long been a refuge for the Ishmaelites oa the other side of the border. Is it to be wondered at that our countrymen need recommen dations in this land where politeness is universal ? Hermosillo is the Los Angeles of tbe State of Sonora, Guaymae may be called its San Diego, and I believe the So noranian merchants have for many year* been known as the Yankees of Mexico. Take the map ot LoS Angeles in 1857 and you need make few alterations to obtain a general idea of the present ap pearance of Hermosillo. Even tbe river flowing like ours bottom upwards, the zanjas and their water gates precisely similar to Los Angeles, reminds one of The view of the capital city from hill or house-top recalls at once Loa Angeles in the "good old days." The orchards are planted in the close way onr groves once were the old Ramirez place a few years ago, with its big palm tree.adobs house and a big adobe wall on Aliso street, being an almost exact facsimile of the Huertas, near Hermosillo. There are more palm trees growing and more being planted, as well as large nurseries of orange trees. A few years will witness a great change in this vi cinity. Date raising bids fair to become an important industry. The nursery men are selling only budded varieties of orange trees. All their trees are on sour stock. One nursery I visited yesterday had some five or six thousand trees, in cluding Florida and California stock, and budded Washington navels, Mediterran ean sweets, Malta bloods,St.Michaels, etc. The production of oranges will soon in crease in almost a geometrical ratio. Land is cheap and water plentiful. There is a little boom in orange culture. In all Mexico the Hermosillo oranges are so superior as to have no rival district to compete with. You will soon be able to judge of their merits. We send a box to Superintendent Muir today. The orchardists fall into the same mistake we once did, of too much water and too little culture. The land is so inexhaustibly fertile that fertilizers are not even thought of. There are many Mexicans of liberal ideas who welcome the Los Angeles orange packers who are packing the crop of Hermosillo. Prior to their coming, I doubt if a single properly packed box of fruit had left this State. The exportation of their oranges by burros to Arizona has been going on for many years. For a few years only have extensive shipments been made by carloads. The oranges are distinctively different from California in having no sub-acid. They are clean and of floe color. As the season goes out in January for long dis tance shipments our growers need not apprehend any extensive competition from this favored fruit district. Some one has said the winter of Sonora is summer; the summer h—.something hotter, which correctly expresses it. We have been kindly treated and hos pitably welcomed by the municipal and State officials. Certainly this is a favored land where "every prospect pleases" and of which I may write yon more anon. 8.
