COLONEL MAYBERRY AS A JEHU. How He Droye a Reporter Down a Mountain. Tbe San Gabriel Millionaire Does Some Lively Traveling. A Vlult to tbe (treat Hemes Dam and tbe Newspaper Man's Interesting Kxpe rlenoe. Moreno Indicator: "Let me intro- duce yon to Colonel Mayberry," eaid Mr. StiUora, the affable hosi of the Palma house at Ban Jacinto. f shook hands with a tall, spare, jolly-looking man sitting by the etove. "He's a newspaper man," sard Stll son. The colonel's face brightened, and it was soon arranged that I should visit the dam with him next day. Stilson smiled, but I did not recognize its sig nificance until I returned. When we started next morning Stllson still seemed to be enjoying himself, as though anticipating some fun. The colonel pioked up the lines, and to my astonishment the horses started off on a dead run. I thought he would pall them down in a moment, but aa he did net, I said: "You must have bought these horses from a Are department." "No, trained them that way myself," and he whipped them up. So we galloped on all over the Hemet ranch, only slowing to a trot upon the li) mile, 10 per cent grade tbat leads to tlie Strawberry and Hemet valleys. We reached the camp in tbe Hemet valley tbout noon. The dam was not then Bniahed and there was but little water n Lake Hemet. The Hemet dam is a coloaaal maaon- Sry structure, built of five and 10-ton ranite boulders, set in cement between ie lofty, almost perpendicular granite alls of a narrow cafion. It ia 100 feet thick at the base, 110 feet high and 200 feet long at the top. The work of con struction wbb then in progress. The r-o'onoi took me high up the bluff to his lookout house, where I could Bee the operation of his "rock snatcher," as he teimed it. "That cable," the colonel pointed out, "running from the engine house to the tower on the dam, then on and fastened to that tree, has a grooved wheel veloci pede carriage running on it, attached to the under side of which is a wire rope fall and tackle. It is going oat for a load now; watch it." Tbe carriage ran out on the cable, seemingly at the rate of about 10 miles an hour, stopping over the quarry, which was about 500 feet below the Jam, and the block and tackle waa propped 150 feet to tbe bottom of the aflon. Three immense boulderß were pen hooked on to the lower block. ; >"Take my stop watch and time that nd," eaid the colonel. ! p almost frightened me, the effect ,»s m startling. That mass of rock, ligbioe at lease 10 tons, ehot into the i '..to „tta fro -\» mighty weight pie the rocks clashing---together made »crt like the rattling of a battery of Mlery in action. In 46 seconds the fe load was landed ou the dam. 1 invented that hoisting apparatus," < tbe colonel gleefully. "Isn't it eidy?" 'It is very much like you, colonel," I Jwered. "How did yon happen to nk of building this dam?" MVell, I will tell you. About three Ire ago I bought the Hemet ranch. § examination I found that a dam it high in this canon would make three milea long and a mile wide, nding enough water to irrigate VOO acres of land. I knew it would c $1,000,000, and I did not feel like ling up all the money. rV hittier of San Francisco was in Iftngelea at the time, and I asked hi to join me. He said he knew ning about irrigation, and wouldn't Ilk to it. A happy thought then stk me. Whittier had just returned f'te fishing trip, and had Buch bad lutiat he was disgußted.

I now realized what a marvelous driver the colonel was, for certainly there is not another man 'n America that could have made that turn with safety, traveling as we were at the rate of 20 miles an hour. Another remarkable thing was that the buggy traveled as steadily as though it were on level ground.' The colonel had wonderful command of his horses, and with consummate skill zigzaged between the boulders andtineveunesnof the road. The realization of his skill reassured me. The colonel continued: "That off horse, yon observe, is the faster of the.two. Hie mate died a month ago. When he was alivo I used to go down this hill a great deal faster." I thanked God the beast was dead. We went tearing on with unslackened speed,'the colonel talking all the time. As we came bowling down the stretches I felt Mre we units t go straight on at each turn Into the awful abyss; but the colonel whipped up the off horso and came around all right, although our hind wheels frequently swung out over tho.yawning chasm. We made the frightful 10-mi!e hill m half an hour, narrowly escaping a ter rible death at every turn. When we reached the hotel Stilson waa standing on the porch. His smile had stretched into a broad grin. "Give me some whisky, Stilson," I said faintly. Ho felt for me and biougbt out his best Kentucky. He had been there himaelf. A FLOURISHING CONCERN.

DMTHE JUSTICES' COUBTS SOME DEMI MONDAINE9 BEFORE JUSTICE SKAMAN. _ - —.T Goodlrind Acquitted of the Charge of Vurglary—minor Cases on Trial. Justice Seaman's pourt was very full yesterday morning, but the audience was principally composed of boys and youths who anticipated some amuse ment in listening to the trial of six in mates of Grace Carlyle's house, who were charged with disturbing the peaoe. There were two remarkable incidents. Ono was the evidence of Police Officer Vignes, who stated that he and others listened to the inmates of the bagnio singing vile songs for half an hour be fore he and his brother officers took pro ceedings to Btop Ihe disturbance. The other was the evidence of Grace Carlyle, who denied the charge of sing ing indecent songs, and cynically re marked that they left that kind of thing to thoir visitors, who were never behind hand in taking advantage of'tl-e license. Justice Seaman lined them all $10 apiece. GOODKIND ACQUITTED. J. Goodkind, the young Hebrew who was arrested two weeks ago for burglar izing Jacoby's clothing store on North Main street, waa acquitted yeaterday by Justice Seaman. The result waa a great surprise to everyone, and waa principally due to the etrjrta of Attorney Ferral, who ia' winning laurela au the defender of ground hard cases. Goodkind was arrested again shortly after his release on a second charge of burglary. MINOR CASES. Ah Hing.a peculative Chinaman with a previous conviction to his credit, was examined yeaterday before Juatice Sea man upon a charge of stealing a quan tity of bed linen, the property of A. Lindsey. Justice Seaman held the defendant in bonds of $1000 to answer for trial in the superior court. J. B. McCarty was on trial yesterday for disturbing the peace of A. Toale. The complaint stated that McCarty came into his store, on Loa Angelea atreet, in a drunken condition and cre ated a disturbance by using vile lan- guage. Justice Snnman pronounced him guilty and ordered him to appear for aentance on Monday. W. H. Hogee was fined $100 for violat ing the city awnlns ordinance by Jua tice Seamau yeaterday. A cjmplaint charging W. Simmona with stealing a set of harness was filed yesterday in Justice Seaman's court by L. A. Scholes. Simmons Is at present doing a2O days' sentence for vagrancy, and has two complaints of petty larceny to face when he emerges from his retire ment. Felicia de Lopez was complained against yesterday in Justice Seaman's court with having disturbed the peace of Candellna Brown. rallies Hair Produces baldness.

THE NOTED ror, I TIC IAN BAPIDI.Y FADING AWAY. Tho stamp Speaker and Shakespearean Scholar Slek TJnto Death at His Home In Oakland. San Francisco Call: Alaal Poor Seonchin! James John Maloney, better known as "Soonchin" Maloney, is reported to be dying at bis home in Oakland. His disease ia puzzling the physicians, for while there is no apparent organic trouble, the osee powerful form of Scon chin is alowiy wasting away and he can not survive much longer. That tho senatorial contest could be in progress at the Palace hotel, or that Vice-President Stevenson could be en tertained at the Baldwin without the preseneeof Sconcliin to lend enthusiasm and noise to the occasion, has caused tbe politicians of both the great parties to marvel at his absence during the past few days. The disappearance of the well-known politician and official of tbe law depart ment of the Southern Pacific company from the streets and hotel corridors leaves a vacuum even time can scarcely fill. Sconchin Malony has long been a familiar ligure in San Franciaco. While his fame is not so widespread and na tional in ita character aa that of some who have been before the public, te is well known in California, and as an at tendant at every political convention held in the state lor 15 years, he has become personally acquainted with nearly every political aspirant; aud at least is known by. sight to every conven tion delegate. Last summer Maloney went east, and after attending the Chicago convection, where be worked enthusiastically foT James G. Blame, he proceeded to New York. In Gotham his oratory and Shakeaperean quotations attracted tbe attention of the political loungers at the Hoffman house, and he waa employed at a salary of $100 a week to stump the state for the Republican ticket. Maloney returned from New York on February last a changed man. Hia happy-go-lucky manner had disappeared and he eeemed morose and melancholy. He waa evidently suffering from some unknown diaeaee and gradually went in to a decline. Recently hia limbs be came so wasted away that he could span the leg above the knee with oue hand. His laat appearance in public waa a few weeka ago at the funeral of the late Senator Leland Stanford, to whom Scon chin waa devotedly attached. He went down to Palo Alto with tears in his eyes, and sat with the reporters in the quadrangle, his head bowed upon bis breast, with hia hands crossed upon hia knee. He spoke never a word, and those who saw them beside the bier of the dead senator could scarcely imagine that the fading form was that of the once robust and powerful Sconchin Maloney. Sconchin'a life passion has been the great bard of Avon. He knew Shake speare from tbe cradle to the grave, and could quote from the famous poet by the hour. Some two or thiee ruontbs ago, when the Corbett theatrical combina tion waa in San Francisco, Mauager Wiiliam A. Brady, who has known Ma loney for several years, aud who met him in New York last fall, went to Sconchin and offered him a fair salary if he would travel at the head of a dra matic company and portray the charac ter ot H unlet in Shakespeare's great THE HERALD'S WORLD'S FAIR TRIP OFFER.

HERALD'S WORLD'S FAIR COUPON JULY 23, 1893.

One of his brothers is in the United States customs Bervice and the others hold po litical positions in tbia city.

ROSSITER'S OFFICE. JUDGE 8 HAW DECLARES HIM TO UK PASADENA'S JUSTICE. Attorner-Reiinral Hart's Teat Caae Doea Not Meet With Muob Success. The Points of the Opinion. Judge Shaw yesterday rendered a de cision in tbe case wherein certain indi viduals, dissatisfied with the estab lished order of things, endeavored to have J. G. Rossiter ousted as recorder of Pasadena. The decision was in favor of Mr. Ros siter, and the court filed quite a long j opinion in the case. The action was brought by Attorney- General Hart to determine the right of the defendant to hold the office. Pasa dena is a city of the sixth class, and the section of tbe law applicable to its gov ernment, section 851, provides among other things that the recorder is to be appointed in such cities by the board of trustees, and shall be one of the justices of the peace of the township in which the city or town is situated- At the time Mr. Rossiter was ap pointed there was but one justice of the peace in Pasadena township residing within the city limits, and he had re fused to accept the office. Mr. Rossiter was not a justice of the peace, but waa otherwise eligible to the office. The plaintiff contends that under the provisions of section 851 no person can hold tbe office of city recorder in a city of the sixth class unless he is at the same time one of the justices of the peace of the township. The defendant, on the other hand, in sisted that tbe clause of that section wbich declares tbat the recorder "shall be one of the justices of the peace of the township in wbich such city ia situated," is directory only, and that in case the justices residing in the city refuse to ac cept the office the board of trustees have the power to appoint some other per son. After qnite a fall discussion of the question, Jadge Shaw holds as follows : "It is clear that the words should be held to be merely directory, tt follows that, under the circumstances of thia caee the defendant ia eligible to the of fice of city recorder of the city of Paaa dena, and tbat he islawfally holding the ofiice. Judgment must therefore go in his favor. It is not necessary in this case to decide that tbe trustees have the power arbitrarily to appoint a person as recorder who is not a justice of the peace. The point decided is that when there is no justice in the city, or none who is otherwise eligible, or when the justices residing in the city refuse to ac cept the office, then the trustees have tbe right and power to appoint some other person to the office of oity re corder."

Some or tlie Feature* Which He Thinks ■ Lend Substance to the Flan* The Onalltles of the Two Sections. Santa Monica is at the present time the summer home of a jolly crowd of Arizoniane, wbo are earnestly talking annexation to Southern California and the making of a new Btate out of the territory. As thia would put a new phase on the subject of state division, and believing that an interview with them published in the Herald would prove interesting, a reporter wbb de tailed to learn their views. The re porter saw A. Kidewell, a prominent merchant of Phtenix, who seema to bubble all over with pride for the terri tory and earnest endeavor for the new Btate. The substance of the interview is bb follows: "Arizona shouldbe annexed to South ern California apd forme.new state with the capital at Los Angesea or some cen tral point which the voters will decide upon. "With the counties oS Ventura, Santa . Barbara, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego and the territory of Arizona, the new Btate of Southern California will comprise something over 200,000 square milea— nearly the eize of France, which haa 40,000,000 inhabitants, and larger than Englaud, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium and Holland combined, having 44,000, --000 of eouls. The new state would have ' a length of over 800 m.Ues from east to weet, an average width, of 300 milea from north to Bouth and have 200 .milea of eea coast and a population of 300,000. Theve would be no conflicting elements in the union of touthern California with Arizonia, the Interests of its people being identical. < "Arizona's principal industry is min ing. The cattle, agricultural and horti cultural pursuits of ita people being secondary to mining. Southern Cali fornia's great induatry is the cultivation of the citrus fruit and grapevine predominating. "The climate of Southern California ia what might be termed temperately semi tropical, while that of Southern Arizona is semi-tropical and even tropical in cer tain portions. The result is that every thing matures by three to four weeks earlier|in|Ar;zona, which in thus enabled to ship to eastern markets early veget ables and fruit. "With Arizona for its back country, Southern California would be greatly aided in its commercial importance, its growing manufacturini; ir.du.ptry and tbe general wealth Gf its people. Loi Ar>»»l«S would soon become a city of 250,000 souls. "With Arizona's untold hidden wealth in gold, mtver and copper; its thickly timbered section of over 250 square miles; the coal mines as yet un- . developed ; the great deposits of chalce dony, granite, red rock, etc.; tbe incom parable productivenesH of tlje soil in the Salt River, Gila, Yuma arid SanPedro valleys, the annexation or union 61 such a territory to Southern California would result in a condition of things tbat would be notential in the affairs of the coun try:" Regarding the business outlook in Arizona Mr. Redewell is likewise enthu siastic. Not a single bank failed, and all are in a healthy condition, able to sus tain the aßßaults of any or all their depositors, should they so desire it. No business failure to chronicle, either. Railroads are being built in every direction, and all heading towards Phoe nix, its principal city. Real estate val ues have not suffered during the panic. The crops throughout the territory are over an average, while the mines will yield more the present year, notwith standing tbe low price of silver, than in any previous epoch. Phojuix, the capital of the territory, is adopting metropolitan airs with its nu merous Tofty stone and brick structures; its electric car lines; its complete tele phone system ; its beautiful drjvewarys ' and shaded avenuea; its miles of 'cemented sidewalks. • The professional trades are well rep resented in the legal, medical, educa tional and journalistic lines. I have, only to chronicle one trade that does not I fare well in Phoenix. It is the coroner, wbo complains bitterly of the lack of " patronage thus: Business is d— bad; no one dies. THE O. CHALYBBUS. . Horticultural Commissioner Scott Haa no Intereattu Fumlgators. County Horticultural Commiaeioner Scott reiterated yeaterday to a Herald reporter tbat be haa not the slightest prejudice against the Auatralian lady bird, orcus chalybeus. He said that no one will be better pleased than himself if it performs the work it ought to ia eating up red anil black scale. He said it could not be said that he had any in terest in the use of fumigating apparatus other than to see that tho fruit post* did not thrive in his district. None of the fumigating tents and liquid supplied by tha county was fur nished for more than cost, and none of the money, therefore, passed through hia hands, and he had no direct or indi rect pecuniary intereat in it. He simply carried out the ordinance of the supervi sors. Mr. Scott said some people, after read ing the article in yesterday's Herald, had ppoken to him ac if he had some selfish intereat in the matter, but the article could only have borne aueh an interptetation by violent presumption. Mr. Scott said the steel-blue beetle will have ail the protection he can giv« it to allow it to Bhow what it can do. The Ladit-s. Tho pleasant effect and perfect safety with which ladies may use the Cahfoi nia liquid laxative Syrup of Figs, unde all conditions, makes it their tavorit remedy.
