A Newspaper Attacks W orklßfrmen —A
Lost Franchise— Motes.
Pasadena, Sept. 25.—There is general
indignation among the workingmen of
thia place over an article which ap
peared in this morning's Times in which
the gathering of workingmen on Satur
day evening to listen to a discussion of
tbe Chinese, etc., was designated as a
"mob" of unemployed men who would
not work if they had a chance.
If tbe Times reporter had taken the
trouble to attend the meeting instead of
getting scooped on tbe news the next
morning, and trying to vent his wrath
on those present, he might have mate
rially changed his mind.
The meeting so far as being a gather
ing of "bumß and tramps" waa made up
for tbe most part of respectable work
ingmen, who had gathered to learn
what they could of the question under
discussion, and the statement that they
were unemployed "bums and hood
lums," who wonld not work if they had
• chance, is entirely false and an insult
to every laboring man who was present.
The lack of notice of the meeting at
tbe time it occurred was strongly com
mented upon by the workingmen, and
the article which appeared this morning
was denounced in no mincing terms. A
lively boycott of the sheet is talked of
among those interested in the matter,
unless retractions are made.
However, tbe article under considera
tion is but in line with the treatment
which all labor movements in tbis city
have received at the hands of this
paper, and our workingmen are fast
learning what to expect.
A LOBT FRANCHISE.
The question now is, who owns the
franchise of the street car tracks
on West Colorado street, between
Fair Oaks and De Lacy? These
trackß are now used by the Colorado
Street Car Railway company,-but it has
been supposed tbat the franchise waa
owned by Professor Lowe. However, it
appears that Mr. Lowe lays no claims to
the franchise, and consequently has no
desire to stand tbe expense of paving
between the track and for two feet on
each aide. *
This leaves the matter in a very com
plicated condition, and unless some
owner for the franchise can be scared
np, there is liable to be considerable
difficulty in getting tbe work done, un
less tbe property owners come np and
agree to stand the expense of the work.
New specifications will be required,
and tbe work would necessarily be de
layed for Borne time, so that it is highly
desirable to rind an owner lor the lost
Tomorrow morning tbe public schools
open ior another year's work. Yesterday
the various principals and teachers met
at tbe Wilson school and thoroughly or

Monday and run right along.
All scholars must present their card,
if tbey have been examined. If not, they
must apply on Tuesday, as there will be
no time for examinations on Monday.
The corps of teachers for the coming
year is much the same, at least only a
few changes have been made, so that a
continuation of tbe good results which
attended the work last year may be
looked for, under the efficient super
vision of Professor Graham.

their place of business, he discovered
that tbe safe was open and tbat tbe in
ner steel chest with all its contents, sev
eral hundred dollars, bad been removed.
He immediately went to Deputy Sheriff
Frank O. Blanker and apprised him of
the fact. Together they went to the
saloon and made a careful examination
of tbe inner portion, the doors, windows
and their fastenings, bnt fonnd tbem all

He? then asked if both knew tbe combin

not positive whether Whitten knew the
inner combination or not, so they were
just about leaving fox the residence
of tbe bartender to find out, when Dep
uty Blanker saw Whitten turning from
Third up North Main street toward
tbem. Blanker moved on down Main
so as to notice him from the opposite
side as he (Whitten) approacned Mr.
Francis on the corner of Second and
Main. After he had passed, noticing
that his coat on one side was heavily
weighted and hanging down very low,

Francis told him that the safe had
been robbed, and upon Mr. Whitten ex
pressing astonishment Francis took bold
of his pocket, saying, "and here is the
money." At this juncture Mr. Blanker
stepped np and told him: "Yes, and
you had better give it np quickly," to
which Whitten replied "be would do
no such thing."
Francis requested the deputy to take
charge of Whitten, who did so, carrying
him up to his office, while Francis went
to Recorder Young's and had a warrant
Upon searching him first Deputy
Slanker got $279.35, and on being told
that there should be some greenbacks,
made a second search, obtaining $15 in
paper money, when Whitten asked,"How
do yon know bnt what 1 had some money

A search of tbe room occupied by Whit
