How the Storm Affected the
Inquest Om a Chinaman Drowned
In a Small Creek Some
Time Agro.
The obstruction in the Cajon pass on
the Banta Fe track was cleared away
yesterday, but the creek which flows
through the pass is very high, and diffi
culty is experienced in keeping the track
in a usable condition. The overland of
yesterday was expected in at a late hour
last night. It is reported tbat a good
deal of snow was blowing about in the
mountains during the storm, and that
the water in the mountain streams is
higher than it has been at any time dur
ing the season.
Other portions of the Santa Fe road are
all right, and according to reports doing
very good freight and passenger business.
The Southern Pacific also reports that its
business during the months of January
and February will make a very good
showing. Travel from the East is
picking up considerably. The out
look for the tourist travel through the
rest of the season is fairly good, al
though the exuberant predictions of the
excursion agents at the beginning of the
winter are not likely to be carried ont.
The unusual mildness of the Eastern
winter and the prevalence of the grippe
has seriously affected the natural course
of travel to this Coast.
Freight Auditor Wilder of the South
ern Pacific reports total east-bound ship
ments for January to have been 14,683,
--710 pounds, about half of which was
from San Francisco. Oranges shipped
aggregated over 1,500,000 pounds.
The old report about the probable re
tirement of Senator Stanford from the
Southern Pacific presidency in order to
devote more time to tbe Palo Alto Uni
versity ia again in circulation. It is ac
companied this time by tbe suggestion
that Colonel Fred Crocker may be
chosen to succeed him. Those who
should know consider that there is no
immediate probability of Senator Stan
ford's retirement from the position he
has so long held.
Mr. J. A. Mnir, assistant division
superintendent of the Southern Pacific,
received yesterday a letter from Hervey
Lindley, in which the latter bestows
much justly merited praise upon the
company for the excellent manner in
which the large crowd of visitors to
Whittier was handled. Attention is
called to the fact that although the trains
were filled to the platform steps not a
single person was injured, owing to the
vigilance of the employees and officials
who had the affair in charge.
The Southern Pacific proposes to make
vigoroua objections to the action of the
Police Commission, which deprived them
of a depot officer. Officer Rulo, one of
the oldest and moat efficient men on the
force, waa removed by the recent action
of the commission. The company main
tains that the large amount of taxes
which it pays annually into the city
treasury entitles it to the protection
of at least one officer, and the commis
sion will hear from them to that effect.
Clinton Jones, the Rock Island agent
at San Francisco, is in Colorado. With
other Rock Island officials, he recently
made a tour of the new Colorado Mid
land (standard gauge), which runs west
erly from 6olorado|Springs and ia des
tined to rival aa a Rock Island connec
tion the Colorado lines of the Rio Grande.
It ia now constructed nearly to Grand
junction on the Rio Grande Western and
the present plan ia to have an arrange
ment with that road, now being made a
standard gauge, so that Midland trains
can go from Colorado Springs to Ogden.
Shrewd railway guessers predict that
these Colorado lines,extending so rapidly
westward, are destined to prove impor
tant factors in the race of Western rail
ways toward this Coast.
The Railway Age, in referring to the
recent blockade in the Sierras, praises
the efforts to raise it, and adds: The
Central Pacific company has never had
euch an experience in the more than
twenty years in which its road over the
Sierra Nevadas haa been operated, and
the fact that, in addition to the benefit
of long experience, it was never bo
thoroughly equipped as this year for
fighting snow, indicates the unprece
dented character of tbe elemental attack
to which it had for a time to yield, and
which may never be repeated in inten
. sity.
The arbitrators have arrived at a de
cision in the case of the Brotherhood of
Railroad Conductors vs. the Cincinnati,
New Orleans and Texas Pacific Railway
Company. Tbe decision ia in relation to
the discharge of sixteen conductors, and
it is as follows:
"Having heard and considered the
testimony presented, have arrived at the
folowing conclueion, viz.: The railway
company Bhall have the alternative to
reinstate the men in their respective
positions on the division on which they
were formerly employed, or on any other
division operated by the company; or tbe
company shall pay, as hereinafter pro
vided, a sum equal to four (4) months'
wages for each man; each man shall
have the alternative, in case reinstate
ment ia offered by the company, to take
the money compensation. If he accepts
reinstatement his money compensation
will date from tbe date of discharge to
the date of hie reinstatement. The wages
per month. are fixed at ninety dollars,and
the aggregate sum is determined at fifty
seven hundred and sixty dollars. This
sum shall be paid by the railway com
pany to a trustee to be named by the
Grand Chief Conductor of the Brother
hood of Railway Conductors, who is
George W. Howard. Such trustees will
disburse the fund on tbe order of the
Grand Chief Conductor of tbe Brother
hood of Railway Conductors."
Before the question waa submitted to
arbitration the Cincinnati, New Orleans
and Texas and Texas Pacific Company
had, through its officials, held several
conferences with the men, and, while the
company refused to reinstate the dis
charged men, they were offered two
months' pay.

Coroner Meredith held an inquest yes
-28 years of age, who was found in the
terday upon the body of a
Chinaman named Chee Heung,
river bed on Sunday last by a Mexican
laborer employed on the Bixby ranch.
From the testimony of Sun Lung, a
cousin, and Ah Nue, the partner, of the
deceased, it was learned that on Decem
ber 14th last, or, according to the Chinese
calendar, on November 25th a number of
Chinese gardeners started from their
farms near Los Cerritos with wagons
loaded with vegetables for the Los An
geles market. Following the road
through the Bixby ranch, the peddlers
reached tbe bridge, which crossed the
Sietas creek almost opposite the ranch
house, and found that the structure was
completely submerged, owing to the
floods. Chee Heung, who waa driving
the toremost wagon, insisted that the
bridge was safe, in spite of the fact that it
was submerged, but some of his com
panions hinted that although the ends
might be secure, ths center of the bridge
was unsafe; and they attempted to dis
suade Chee from attempting to cross it.
He, however, laughed at their fears, and
urging biß horses into the stream he
reached about one-third of the distance
across, when the wagon, horses and man
disappeared in the raging flood. His
horrified countrymen ran down the banks
of the stream in an effort to save him,
but no traces of him could be found.
Three hours later the bodies of the horses
were discovered several miles below the
scene of the accident; but it waß not un
til Snnday last that the body of the un
fortunate Chinaman was heard of. It
was then, of course, in a shocking state
of decomposition, but it was brought to
town yesterday and buried immediately
after the inquest. The jury returned a
verdict of accidental drowning, in ac
cordance with the facts.
Served by tbe Ladle* of Imnaanuel
I'rcsbj terlan Churcb.
The ladies of the Immanuel Presbyte
rian churcb are receiving their friends
this week in the Crocker block, No. 216
South Broadway, formerly Fort street,
where they have arranged a most at
tractive dining room. It is here that
each day, from 11:30 to 2 :30 o'clock, all
of the dainties of the season can be ob
tained by those who do not desire to
travel home or to patronize the restau
rants. The ladies have taken great pride
in arranging the large room in a most
attractive manner. They commenced to
decorate the rooms on Monday morning
and yesterday, when they opened, there
appeared to be nothing missing tbat
coald have fdded to the beauty of the
place. The huge show windows were
filled with fl mors artistically arranged
and many cailas added considerable to
their attractiveness. Inside the tables
were adorned in such a manner as to
draw from the many visitors extremely
warm words cf praise. Under such cir
cumstances it was not strange that lunch
was enjoyed by a large number of citi
zens. The viands were unusually good
and served hot, as they were, gave the
lunch a reputation which is sure to bring
back a crowded bouse today,when a spe
cialty will be made of hot soups. The
charge for lunch is only a trifle, twenty
five cents, and the return for that email
sum is fully worth twice as much.
A Fireman Dead.
John Lee, foreman of Hook and Lad
der Company No. 1, died at 8 o'clock on
Monday morning of heart disease. Mr.
Lee had been ailing the past three
months. He was about 35 years of age.
He left a wife but no children. Mr. Leo
waa greatly esteemed in the fire depart
ment. He waa a moat efficient foreman
and never once failed to answer a call.
He wjis formerly connected with the
San Francisco fire department. Hia
father waa accidently shot and killed
in that city some yeara ago
while acting aa a marker at a
rifle shooting match. Hia brother,
who is a member of the San Francisco
Underwriters' Firo Patrol, will arrive
in Los Angeles to attend the funeral
which takes place at 2 o'clock this after
noon. The deceased was a member of
the order of the Knights of Pythias who
have assumed charge of the funeral.
Chief Strohm haa detailed two members
from each company in the department
to act as an escort. Mr. Lee was also
connected at one time with Lawson's
Patrol, and he waa very proud of a ring
which Mr. Laweon gave him as a re
ward of merit.
Chamber of Commerce.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce will take place
thia afternoon at 3 o'clock in their rooms
on First street. A number of mattera of
special importance are to come before
the organization, and a large attendance
la expected.
A lumber of Thing. Ar . Go|lll
3»o Cone Off ln March.
The prospect ia that the month of
March will see a livelier atate of things
in Loa Angeles than haa existed here for
some time. Tourist travel, which has
steadily been picking up, will have
reached its height by that time. The
cltrup fair will begin on the llth of the
month and last five days. From the re
turns coming in from all parts of South
ern California, the prospect is that it will
be one of the most successful affairs of
its kind ever undertaken in the State.
The attendance will probably be very
large. During the same week the con
vention of the frnit-growers of the State,
under the auspices of the Horticultural
Society, will take place. This will prob
ably attract several hundred of the
most prominent agriculturists if
the State to Los Angeles. The first
annual convention of the County
Horticultural Commissioners, three from
each county in the State, will take place
at the same time.
The State Teachers' Convention will
begin on the 18th of the month, two days
after the fair closes. It will be attended
by several hundred teachers, from all
over the State, and as it follows bo soon
after the citrus fair it is not improbable
that many of the educationalists will
arrive a few days before the convention
opens to take an object lesson at tbe
At the same time the meeting of the
Transcontinental Railway Traffic Associ
ation will take place at Coronado. This
will attract a large number of railway
men, the representatives of ten or fifteen
linos, and it ia supposed that they will
make an excursion to Los Angeles while
the fair is in progress. The chances are
that Los Angeles will have to provide for
several thousand visitors during this
month, and that the hotel and railroad
people will have plenty to do.
Governor Waterman Asked to
Speak—Pasadena Preparations.
Governor 'Waterman will be invited to
make the opening speech at the citrus
fair. Tbe first night will be made the
occasion of a special reception to the vis
itors who will be in the city during fair
week. A large room in the Pavilion will
be fitted up for dancing, and good music
will be in attendance. As Governor
Waterman made the opening speech at
the beginning of the northern fair it is
supposed he will accept, the invitation
which Superintendent Grey has sent

California State Directory.
The canvass is now in progress in Los
Angeles for the next volume of R. L.
Polk & Co.'a "California State Gazetteer
and Business Directory." This is now a
recognized standard publication. Their
book for 1888 gave universal satisfaction,
approved everywhere for its completeness
in all details. The work ia issued bien
nially. The book for 1890 will come fully
up to the standard, and the publishers
propose to add a number of new features.
Every care will be taken to give every
town, village and postoffice in the State,
with careful descriptive sketch and the
name of every person in business. Los
Angeles received a good send-off in the
last book, and will in the next. The
business men of the city owe it to them
selves and to the credit of the city to give
this forthcoming book a generous patron
The canvass for Loa Angelea has been

flower Festival.
The ladies of the auxiliary of the
YouDg Men's Christian Association held
a meeting at the Association rooms yes
terday for the purpose of consulting
about the Flower Festival, which has
been offeree 1 , them for this year by tbe
Flower Festival Society. The ladies are
greatly interested in the work of raiping
money for saving the new building, and
unanimously decided to accept the offer
and proceed at once to organize for tbe
effort. They voted to devote $2,000 from
the proceeds to the building fund, and
intend to make the festival the greatest
success it has ever been. Special induce
ments are to be made to florists and in
dividuals, as well as towns, to enter
exhibitions of.choice flowers, and thua
make the festival at once a marked at
traction and a striking advertisement of
the resources of Southern California.

named Foy, who was so poor that he had

stole the balance of the money from him.
He had Fryer arrested, and in the police
