ARTHUR I. STEWART DECAMPED.
The Chief Deputy Street Super intendent a Defaulter. A Big Copper Cent All He Left tn the Safe. The Discovery Mad* Yesterday Morning-. Bow tha Young Han Stole the Funds —Sir. Watson Will Make Bood tha Amount. Arthur I. Stewart, chief deputy street -Superintendent under D. A. Waison, has gone and about $1700 of the city's money has gone with him. The defaulter left tbe city yesterday morning, after having taken every dol lar from tbe office. TTe announcement of the defalcation created a sensation around the city ball yesterday. The news leaked out as early as 10 o'clock in the forenoon, when it was discovered that ths inside doors of tbe Safe could not be unlocked. STBWART GO* CP EARLY. Young Stewart, who has been a trust ed deputy since Mr. Watson's induction into office, must have got up very early yesterday morning. He was at tbe oflice before any of tbe other officials, but re mained only a few minutes, lis left a note on Mr. Watson's desk saying that he had gone to Santa Monica to make arrangement! to secure money with wblob to make up the shortage of $273 tbat was discovered to be missing last week. fttewert had loaned the amount to a friend to make a payment on some prop erty. THE FIRST SHORTAGE. At the meeting of tbe council last Monday the report of the special com mittee appointed to investigate the affairs of the superintendent's office was brought np, as published in the Herald of Tuesday morning. It showed a short age of $273. It has since developed that he was short in bis accounts in a larger sum. Bat it was never thought that he had through pure criminal intention gotten away with the money. The act was considered simply as an indiscre tion, which has proven to be a costly one. Superintendent Watson had intended to discharge Stewart yesterday, ao it is understood, but the young man took the precaution to not tarn up. | When Mr. Watson scanned the note be was not greatly alarmed, but began an im mediate but quiet investigation. HE LEFT A COPPER CENT. The first door of tbe safe was found to be unlocked, but tbe inside door and cash doors were securely bolted. The locks were broken and the discovery made tbat all the money was gone. One lonely copper cent remained as a gentle reminder tbat be did not wish to en tirely deplete tbe safe. , the total shortage". * . Mr. Davis, an expert, was immedi ately put to work on the books. He worked on them all day, and at 10 o'clock last night found the total short age to be $1093.39. From the excavating fund it waa fonnd that be was short $00.01; from tbe incidental fund ha took $201.53, while in tbe sidewalk and building fund he was found to be shor»*fi4oo.9s. THE SHERIFF .iSi •>' The sheriff's office 2 o'clock, and within a few hours tele grams were sent to every place where he waa likely to go or pass il& his aratmpt to escape. He was seen on/the street at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, .but since then no trace of him has been found. It is thought that he bad no more than $000 or $700 on his person wheb he took bis sudden departure. HIS METHOD OF OPERATING. It was discovered tbat Stewart was a very olever operator. He had planned with great accuracy. He was so suc cessful in his operations that be fooled tbe expert when bis books Were inves tigated a week or two ago. The superintendent of streets had about $2700 on deposit in the Southern Oaliiornia National bank, out of which amount Stewart got tbe $90. From the deposit in the Farmers and Merchants bank be managed to secure $720, and be took tbe item of $201 from money paid: into the office for permits, licenses, etc. It ia evident tbat be made tbe larger hauls before tbe sth inst., as all ac counts at the banks had | been checked np and found to be correct. HE "AIDED" THE EXPERT. It was in the office where he got in hia fine work. The expert bad balanced the cash twice, and wae fooled by young Stewart, who always took deep interest in "aiding" tbe accountant in bis inves tigations. Expert Davis found out that Friday night one page jof checks Wae missing, and it is thought Stewart took them on the outside. His mode oi stealing was made easy from tbe man ,, ncr in which tbe books were kept. The expert, however, said he stole very smoothly. Stewart was a very affable, intelligent young man of pleasing address and good family. He is probably 22 or 23 years old. His many friends, among whom are some of the substantial men •f the city, will be greatly shocked when they know the facts of his crime. WATSON WILL MAKE GOOD THE AMOUNT. Superintendent Watson stated last nigbt tbat the shortage would be made np immediately. He will present a report of tbe situation to tbe council tomorrow, in which he will state the shortage, and bow Stewart managed to get away with tbe money. Mr. WatFon, of course, feels very bad about the mat ter, and says that the city will not lose r. cent by Stewart's acts. HIS MOTHER BROKEN HEARTED. A Herald reporter visited young Stewart's residence at 1708 Grand ave nue last evening, but his mother, Mrs. W, H. Stewart, was absent. His father is in Oregon. It was learned, however, tbat tbe missing young man bad not , betu r at home tbe previous night. In the forenoon he sent a friend, It Mr. Hopperatead, to inform bis mother tbat he bad gone to Catalina and would be home tonight. When Mrs. Btewart -.Warned the facts in the matter she was almost broken hearted. COULD HAVE HAD HELP. tHwIM 1 *' id that y°ang Stewart conld easily have raised tbe amount of hia . eoortage. Hia grandfather at, Santa raoaica is a very wealthy gentleman ■and would have aided him bad he asked Esst, Young Stewart was rede&i>sau4naV<*v month in tbe office, a part of which went to supply the needs of tbe family which it is said he has been support ing. I \ 1 $ ■ It is almost, nnaocountable bow he squandered the money in so short a time, as he is a very temperate young man. He does not drink nor use to bacco. As be waa not under bonds, be will, if caught, probably be prosecuted for grand larceny, as he stole the money from Mr. Watson and not from the city. bticwart's SECCBSSOR. F. C.

YESTEBDAY'S POLO CONTEST AT SANTA MONICA. The Riverside Flayers Manage to Play a Draw Oame With the Seaside Kiperts. Motes. The visitor to Santa Monica who has not witnessed a game of polo has missed seeing one of tbe most exciting of out door sports imaginable, for it takes norve, good judgment, unerring accur acy in hitting the ball and expert horsemanship in tbe player, and still further, tbe pony the player rides can either make or mar his rider's play. A good pony to a polo player is what Solomon says a good wife is to her hus band, "a jewel worth far more than rubies," as be will watch the ball, obey tbe slightest.order of command, in fact anticipate them, and what is more, en joy the sport fully as much as bis rider, and rumor has it tbat more than once has a pony made a goal by a judicious kick of tbe ball. The game is nothing more than old fashioned shinny on horseback or pony back, and the player strikes tbe ball while going often at full speed by means of a cane from 48 to 52 inches long, made of tough wood, to which is attached a croespiece or bead, about seven inches long and two inches thick. Tbe ball is made of wood and about the size of a baseball, painted white. In a regular match game there are four players on a side, but the game can be played very well by three on a side. The game is played on a ground 250 yards long by 150 yards wide. Tbe gools are similar to football goals and are 20 feet apart, and are situated in tbe center of each end line of the grounds, tbe ob ject being for the respective sides to drive the ball through the goals of their side. The game here' is divided into four periods of play, called quarter of 15 minutes with rests of 15 minutes, tbe side knocking the most goals in tbe en tire game winning. There ia no description of the game tbat can possibly be written tbat will come up to tbe reality, and it is always witnessed by a large conconrse of society people who enjoy the exciting sport. The ladies take turns in serving re freshments, that portion of tbe grounds assuming the character of an afternoon tea in the woods, where tbe pater familias, the judge, eligible young men and their lady escorts are served by charming young women who give tbeir guests the refreshments, and a delight ful picture of youth and beauty without price tfxjpthe. coin/ of good fellowship and good manners. members of the South- club, which, by the i way., ia tfie-'./pioneer club of California, put up' an unusually good game to a large-audience, which appreciated every good stroke and play and generously ap- /^Stt-.xl The »m$ We#y.match true between Santa Monica and Riverside, and both sides were out for blood. The friends of both sides backed them liberally. The teams were composed as follows: Santa Monica, colors orange and black —J. B. Proctor, riding Rex, cap tain ; Bolton, riding Tom Tit; W. H. Young, mounted on Shiela. Riverside, colors, red and black—Q. L. Waring, riding King Pin; C. £. Maud, mounted on Dawn; R. Bettner, riding Cigarette. Mr. Baker of Riverside officiated aa umpire and Mr. E. J. Gorbam of Santa Monica as time-keeper. The play from start to finish was hotly contested, lull of brilliant strokes and plays, and, when the time-keeper called time on the last quarter's play, stood a tie —three a side. The following ia the score by quar ters : Quarters. 12 3 4 Tot'l Santa Monica 0 111—3 Riverolde 0 2 10— 3 A Wonderful Air Tool. Mr. £. S. Comings, the artist, now located at 22 South Spring street, is making the new Sepia photo enlarge ments in a new and novel manner. They are literally air portraits, finished en tirely by the air brush. This \p a little tool throwing a jet of color which by his skill is directed on paper or canvas, giv ing a delicacy of touch that cannot pos sibly be approached in any other man ner. That Mr. Comings' work is being greatly appreciated by those who admire (rue art is shown by tbe fact that tbe gentleman is now over twenty orders behind. To Bee a portrait built up on the white paper without a touch of the hand to those not knowing the working of the air brush seems like some sleight of hand performance. Mr. Comings has a national reputation, and is second to none in bis line in tbe United States,aud is established as the leader in his work in Southern California. A Bailable Firm. Messrs. Wigmore & O'Brien, who are located at 231 West First street, are one of the most popular firms in tbe city. Both are young men of excellent reputa tion and fine business abilities. They are engaged in the commission, real estate and insurance business, and are agents for several of the best insurance companies in existence. They also make a specialty of taking charge of properties, collect rents and make loans. It might be mentioned that they also are engaged in cement, brick, terra cotta and sewer pipe, and canned goods. You could not deal with a more reliable firm.

Mexico's Independence Anni versary in This City. A Parade, Eloquent Address?s, Sing ing- and Three Bailej. Despite a Misunderstanding • Flaaalng Parade Was Shown Ibe Literary Fzerelsea In the Afternoon. The Balls Last Night. Yesterday was a gala day with tbe Mexicans oi the city, who were out in fall force celebrating 'tbeir Fourth of July. Tbe occaiion commemorates tbat period 80 years ago. when tiie inhabi tants of tbe sister and neighboring re public, under tbe patriotic leadership of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, renounced thoir allegiance to Spain, the mother country, and went forth to do battle for their independence, the result of which is inscribed among tbe glorious events of history. Yesterday was the scene of tbe princi pal part of the celebration and its con clusion as well. The celebration is always inaugurated at 11 o'clock in the evening of Sep tember 15th and continued until far into the following evening. Yesterday's events consisted of a parade and literary exercises in the afternoon and several balls in the even ing. At daybreak a salute of 21 guns was rired and tbe cry of victory given by a large number of enthusiastic young peo ple who were on hand to ccc that the day's celebration was started with the proper vim. The exercises did not commence until tbe afternoon, however, the morning be ing occupied with the bustle and contu sion of preparation. It had been announced that the par ade would start at 1:30 o'clock and pro ceed south on Main Btreet into Spring Btreet, and west on Third to Broadway to tbe point of starting on Buena Vista Btreet. In anticipation of this event a large number of people stood on tbe sidewalks along portions of the proposed line of march and proceeded to await the com ing of tbe procession. But those sta tioned south of tbe plaza waited long and waited for nought. The procession did not appear before them. It seems that a misunderstanding had accurred among many who were to have taken part. The band, police, Guard of Juarez and some carriages were on band, but the various other ad juncts to the success of the affair did not come around, many thinking that yesterday was not the time selected. However, those in charge of the affair were equal to the emergency and de cided to give as much of a parade ao possible under tbe circumstances. The column formed on Buena Vista street near Alpine, and proceeded over a por tion of the line of march. First rode Officer Arguello, who acted as grand marshal. By his Bide were two handsome aides fn the persona of Offi cers Levericb and Woodward. Then marched a column of police on foot. Behind this blue-coated division came the band, followed by the Juarez guards under the command of Capt. J. 8. Redous. A line of carriages contained represeta* tives of America Justice, Liberty, and the young ladies who took part in tbe sieg ing of tbe Mexican national hymns, later in the afternoon. The column marched down Alpine to upper Main street, and around tbe Plaza, back on Upper Main street to Bellevue avenue to Buena Vista street and to the start ing point. Here the parade was dis missed and a scramble for tbe platform ensued. The exercises were held in the open air on a vacant lot on Buena Vista, south of Alpine street. A temporary platform had been erected and roofed with reeds in imita tion of tbe Mexican ramada. Several tiers of seats were placed at tbe rear of tbe platform while the speakers and guests of the day occupied chairs about tbe aides. Tbe platform was decorated with streamers of red. white and green, national colors of Mexico. On a railed platform at the rear of the stage and above the tier of seats was seated little Miss Lugo, who was dressed to represent America; on ber left was another little girl, Miss Fuentes, as Justice, while on her right was Liberty, impersonated by Miss Rivera. Grouped about tbe other Beats were a number of little, dark-eyed, smiling misses wearing white dresses and scarfs of the Mexican colors and wearing golden crowns, They represented tbe different states of the* republic of Mexico. On the platform below tbe little girls were eeated a number of charming eefioritas, who took part in the singing. The crowd surrounded the platform on all sides, and was composed of Mexi cans and Americans as well. It was a jolly crowd, and everybody was out for a good time, any they all seemed to have it. The irrepressible small hoy was around 'in full force. The fences to the north, and west of the platform offered an ex cellent point of vantage and the "kid" took it. All were enthusiastic and tbe speeches were well received. "Vive Mejico" was the cry of the day. America also received its share of throat recognition, and tbe hearty accord with which this great republic was cheered showed that those present were still good American citizens, although they were enjoying a little foreign Fourth of July of their own. Tbe guards in their red jackets and blue irowsers were stationed to the right of tbe platform, aid added to the general noise-making by firing a num ber of rounds in honor of the republic on our south. Every one on the programme did well and their efforts were received with praise as waa shown in the many floral tributes presented to the various par ticipants. One of tbe most novel and pleasing parts of tbe exerciseß was the rendition of a different stanza of the Mexican na tional hymn by a number of the young women who sang in turn. 'The follow ing sang tbe chorus: Misses Bote 110, Lopez, Sepnlveda, Solomon, Gambna, Gallardo, Llanos and Mrs. Muney, Messrs. G. Mdrano, J. Cano, E. Contra ras and C. D. Finbies. Prof. Espisoza dirtcted the music, while Prof. Martinez acted as accom panist. After a selection by the band, Mr. P. A. Lugo, the president of the society, stepped forward and in a few remarks introduced Sir. A. A. Montana as tbe president of tbe day. Mr. MontaHo was received with ap plause, and briefly stated the object of the meeting. The act of independence wai next read by Y. Perez. Mr. R. J. Dominguez, the orator of the day, was presented. He spoke feel ingly, and provoked much applause. He said tbat Mexico, under the admin istration of President Diaz, had made greater progress than under any other president. Mr. Dias was extolled as tbe best official Mexico had ever had. Tbe speaker predicted that within a short time the commercial relations with this country would become of the closest, and tbe two republics would be closely allied in this respect. The band played the Mexican na tional hymn, after which the young women stepped forward and the first verse was sung by Miss Sopena. Mr. W. P. Hyatt then delivered an address in English, which was followed by another stanza of the national hymn by Miss Solomon. The young woman speaker of the day, Misa Rosita Lopez, was introduced. She acquitted herself most excellently. She spoke at some length, and was very elo quent. Her address waa full of noble sentiments, and was received with storms of applause. At the conclusion of Miss Lopez's ad dress tbe crowd called lor more music, which was given by the band. Miss M. Gonzalez then rendered a veree of the national hymn. Judge Bartholomew spoke in English, and Misß Marie Sepulveda sang another portion of the national hymn. Mr. E. Dervin next addressed the crowd in Spanish, and Misß Amelia Lugo sang. Tbe exercises were con cluded by the national hymn being rendered by tbe band. Mrs. Emilia F. de Fuentes slbo sang. In tbe evening the populace divided itself between the three bailes, at S. I, M. B. ball. Music andr Amory balls. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. More People to Bee the Big Pumpkin. Notes. A great crowd of people climbed tbo stairs of tbe chamber of commerce yes erday to take a look at the gieat pump kin before it should leave for the world's fair. All day long it was surrounded by a gathering of astonished easterners. The car will also contain a dozen other pumpkins, varying in size from 150 to 280 pounds, the weight of the monster being 314 pounds. A letter receiven from Mr. Wiggins describes in a graphic manner the enor mous crowd which thronged tbe Cali fornia building on tbe admission day celebration. He says tbat it is estimated that 75,000 people gathered in front of tbe rack from which the fruits were to be distributed. Mr. McGarvin says he never had bo much fun in all his life. They broke down all tbe railings and re fused to keep in line, and scrambled for tbe fruit like a lot of school boys, inside the building, and broke down a number of tbe exhibits and divided the frag ments among them. The crowd, how ever, was most of them respectable, and greatly pleased at the reception which they received. A communication was received from tbe governor of Tennessee announcing that that state will send delegates to the Irrigation congress. Letters were received yesterday from half a dozen states and territories announcing the nomination of delegates. FOR THE GEARY ACT. Resolutions Adopted at a Mass Meeting Last Brenlng. A large mass meeting was held last evening at the old court bouse, at which tbe following resolutions were unani mously adopted: We, the citizens of Los Angeles, in mass meeting assembled, do hereby unanimously demand of our govern ment officials the prompt and unhesi tating enforcement of the#Geary act.

An accident, which fortunately was not attended with serious results, oc curred last nigbt at the Loa Angeles theater during the progress of the per formance. A mass of plaster became detached from tbe ceiling and fell on the head of Mr. R. H. Davie, who was in tbe audi ence. Mr. Davis was stunned by tbe blow, and for a short time waa thought to be seriously injured. He was removed to the Hollenbeck hotel and Dr. Wing sent for, who soon brought Mr. Davis to con sciousness. He was found to have sustained three scalp wounds, which bled considerably but were not serious. An hour after wards Mr. Davis was laughing over hia misadventure with bis friends and Man ager Conant. ABOUT THE CITY HALL. Proceedings at the Committee Meetings Yesterday. Meetings of tbe finance, the sewer and the supply committees of the council were held at the city hall yes terday. Tbe sewer committee formulated a re port recommending that the bids for the Hill street district sewer be rejected, and tbat tbe city engineer prepare new specifications and a new ordinance of intention. The supply and finance committees transacted considerable routine busi ness, but nothing of importance was done! Amateur Baseball.

In it City Ki-titaui-iint. A trifling incident noted not long ago in a city restaurant tells its own story and needs no spoken moral. Two girls, possibly attendants in a shop, were sit ting together eating their luncheon, and ono was holding forth to her companion on an experience which bad j ust befallen her. "I camo in here," said she, "and got this seat, but want long before an old lady came in and sat next to me. She took off ono pair of glasses and put on another. Then sho stared and stared at the bill of faro and laid it down. 1 thought first she couldn't read n word Then sho turned around to me. " 'Will you let mo sit next to the win dow?' says she. "I didn't any notice, and in a min ute she said it again. Then I answered her: " 'No,' says I, 'this is my seat, and I'm going to keep it.' "She turned 'way round in her chair then and looked mo all over. Then sho looked away. But I guess she knew I'd got the best of her, for she did have tbe manners to say: " 'I beg your pardon.' "She spoko real low, and I noticed she looked kind of surprised."—Youth's Com panion. Sticks In Mercantile Life. Many young men choose a mercantile position for the present only without thought or intention of making it a per manent business. Tbe result is that of tentimes wo find these men at SO years receiving no more pay than they did when only 18. There is an army of this class of young men behind counters today. They ara an aimless, pitiable class. They stand listlessly in their departments and are as unobservant of what's going on around them as are tho inanimate figures which ono sees at the entrance of clothing estab lishments. Many of them let slip grand opportu nities of becoming great business factors in the commercial world and havo doomed themselves to tho treadmill of common drudgery.
