The License Ordinance-The Rains.
Pasadena Oct. 25.—For a long time it
has been apparent to our city officials
that a new license ordinance ia needed,
but although attempts have been made
on different occasions to change it, and
at one time an ordinance waa drawn up,
nothing haa ever been done and the old
ordinance etanda.
An instance of tbe working of thia
decrepid old affair waa illustrated in
tbe amount which the city oollected
from the fake circua which paid tbia
city a visit today.
All tbe city marshal wae able to get
under tbe city ordinance waa (50, and it
ia doubtful whether even thia amount
could have been collected had the circua
people chosen to objtct.
Such combinations aa thia ahould not
be allowed to ahow for less than $100
per day, and many placea charge more
than thia. They carry a large amount
of coin out of town and leave but a
poor equivalent.
Tbia ia but one of many errora which
exiat in the license ordinance aa it
stands today, and the sooner some ac
tion ia taken to remedy its effects the
better it will be for all concerned.
There ia apparently more behind the
new electric road proposition, an account
of which appeared in yesterday's Hun

aprung on the Faaadena public.
So many of tbeae roada bave been
boomed in thia city and vicinity that
our people are becoming very skeptical,
and with good cause. The sale of the
Highland linea, however, haa been
made to a atrong ayndicate, without
doubt, and from appearances they mean
buaineaa, at leaat aa far aa the Lowe
mountain road ia concerned, and proba
bly the Loa Angelea connection will go
through. Aa for the Santa Monica
scheme it doea not eeem to be aa certain
of going through at once, but may later.
The line if completed aa outlined wonld
mean much to this city and vacinity,
and will, without doubt, prove a paying
Tbe circua, with ita attendant tramps
and pick-pocketa, haa come and gone,
and it must be said for the credit of Faa
adena that it received but light patron
age. The police were enforced by an
additional man and a close watch kept
on the circua crowd of helpere, which
laid very low, evidently thinking that
they were getting too much notoriety
already without any more breaka.
Two performancea were given and no
attempt waa made to cut the entertain

The Rain Keeps Away tbe City Council.
Pomona, Oct. 25. —Last evening, ac
cording to the last adjournment of the
city council was the time for another
session, but on account of the inclement
weather, or some other cause, a quorum
did not materialize. Mayor J. A.-Gal
lup and Trustee J. H. Graber being the
only two members present. After sit
ting there patiently—impatrthtlv would
perhaps better express it—until about
8 o'clock, they left to await another
trial on Tuesday evening next.
Mr. 0. H. Marshall, who is for the en
suing season manager of Armory Hall
opera honse, intends at the n»xt regular
meeting of tbe board of city trustees to
appear before that body and endeavor
to have tbe license for each periormance
of any traveling troupe or company that
may appear here removed, if possible.
He thinks that perhaps, although taken
off "the circuit," he might then be able
to indnce a worthy combination now
and then to give us v call.
It is probsble that it is not *o much
tha email license aa it ia the condition of
the hnll, its atage, eurroundinge and
general lack of facilities, inch as the
fastidious artists of tbe day demand.
However, if Mr. Marshall can present
views that would be reasonably suffi
cient to the members of the board, we
are confident that they would be will
ing to meet him more than half way—
say make a nominal license on him as
manager for the quarter or theatrical
season, or arrange the matter in some
way that Pomona would not lose the
joyment of everything of this kind for
time indefinite.

The Midwinter Fair Proposition—Local
Santa Aju, Oct. 25.—M. J. Bundy re
turned from a buainesa trip to San Fran
cisco laat evening. Mr. Bundy waa not
a committeeman on arrangementa to
the midwinter fair, bnt is a gentle
men who takes an interest in whatever
ia going on that pertains to the welfare
of Southern California. He waa at the
meeting of the committee in tbe Mil la
building and waa struck with the general
interest in the arrangementa that are be-
ing made (or tbe great midwinter expo
sition. He thinks that the idea of the
southern counties uniting in the erection
of a building is a good one, provided
that it can be located in the proper
place; bnt he does not think that tbe
supervisors should be asked to make an
appropriation for that purpose, but that
it should be done by private subscrip
tion. That also seems to be tbe opinion
of about all the taxpayers of tbe county.
A great many of our people think that
it would be a better idea for Orange
county to rent a building in a suitable
place in Los Angeles and make a credit
able exhibit there while tbe midwinter
fair is in progress in San Francißco,
while others tbink that it wonld be bet
ter for the county to spend what surplus
money she haa in improving her public
highways and cleaning up the towna
and planting out and caring lor parka,
Uiub beautifying and making our county
attractive and a deairable place in

A Noted Turfman Paralyzed by the I.o»»
of Hie Wife.
Chicago, Oct. 25.—Gwynne R. Tomp
kins, owner of tbe Oloverdale stable of
race horses, and his wife Elizabeth, of
Washington city, are both well known
turf writers. In fact, Mrs. Tompkins is
known on two continents as one of the
most effective writers on turf events.
Three weeks ago she left Washington
with her little ion to visit her parents
in St. Louis. On the Kith inst. she left
there for Chicago to see the fair. Tben
she dropped out of sight. The utmost
affection existed between the couple,
and as days pstsed without the custom
ary letters from her, Tompkins became
alarmed and hastened here to hunt for
her. His search was unavailing. Mean
time, from the tone of a letter and tele
grams from his mother in Washington,
he became convinced she had beard
from the missing woman and that some
thing was wrong. Sleeplessness and
anxiety so preyed on his mind that yes
terday in tbe Press club rooms be suf
fered a paralytic stroke, rendering him
speechless. He is now lying mute, a:
death's door, in the hospital. A corre
spondent of a local paper in Washington
found Tompkins' mother. She admits
having received a letter from her son's
wife, dated at Baltimore, but declined
to reveal its contents, saying only that
Mrs. Tompkinß and tbe child were in
Baltimore, and that she intended to keep
her addren secret, intimating that she
could not be found. So tbe mystery
is as deep as ever. .

Detroit, Oct. 25. —News comes from

caused the first holocaust. The train
ran by a stntion at which it waa to await
an eastbound train heavily loaded with
paeaengera, and but for the fact that tbe
eaatbound crew also infracted the rules
by remaining overtime for the men to
lunch, the trains would have met at full
speed between the stations. Aa it waa,
tbe traina came together at the station
with considerable force. One waa stand
ing still and tbe other Blowing down for
tbe station. When the crews returned
to Battle Creek they were discharged
and an effort made to hush tbe matter.

Ladles, What Do You Think of the Silver
A gentleman waa telling me about the
meeting of the silver men in New York
city at the great hall of the Cooper
Union bnilding. He was full of admira
tion even of the speakers whom he did
not agree with. They were giants, he
said, full of their subject, magnetic ora
tors, flashing out gems of wit, fact and
logic. Every phase of the topic was en
larged on, and it was an education in
economics from that side just to hear
the speeches. My own enthusiasm was
stirred at the story. "Were any women
there?" I asked. "Very few," was the
answer. It occurred to me then that
in all the months since the silver
coinage discussion has been at its
fever height I have only once heard
the subject mentioned by a woman or
women. And yet they seem to talk
busily enough and with an air of intense
intorest whenever two or three of them
are together. What do they talk of? I
overhear fragments of their conversa
tion sometimes. Two of the so called
Intelligent middle class ladies talked
rapidly and earnestly together, and one
Bald: "She'sa perfect gadabout, and she
lets her house go till it looks like fury,
like fury! She runs into my hat and
bothers me at my work and bores me to
death." At that moment the object of
the conversation appears on the scene.
The lady who had been telling the tale
suddenly assumes the sweetest pos
sible face and begins' to reproach
the "gadabout" for not coming
to see her. Two others were con
versing on the steps. This fragment
floats upon their ocean of gabble: "She's
been putting up peaches and called me
in to see them, and they looked perfectly
awful. She'd mashed them all up get
ting them into the jars, and she didn't
know any better than to cook them too
much, and they all got brown and squehy
looking, but of course I had to tell her
they were canned lovely." O woman,
gentle, intelligent, kindly natured, sweet
and sincere! Do you *~ ow that a belief
is growing that we are what we think,
and that every deceitful, spiteful, un
worthy thought brings upon our own
heads its consequences in the shape of
ill health or misfortune? Did you ever
try for one month to live np to the rule
not to say about another woman one
word that yon would not he willing to
say to her? •
Autumn is here, and the club meeting
season is at hand. For your club dis
cussions in the coming year select one
after another the great questions of gen
eral publio and human interest. Some
women's clubs have done this already,
and great is their reward. When the
members of these crabs give addresses,
their words are not merely the thrashing
of musty old straw or the mild moral
and sentimental platitudes which pass
for original thought with so many
women. No! The members of the up
to-the-times club come en rapport with
modern life—lrving, throbbing, electric
life. In women's clubs the subject of
use is too little considered, and that of
tho merely curious and entertaining gets
far too much attention. In public ques
tion's there are this moment silver, the
tariff, sanitation, education, the lessen
ing of vice and crime, municipal govern
ment, home rule in Ireland, the annexa
tion of Hawaii, village and city im
provement, woman suffrage, woman's
work and wages and dozens of other
vital matters that coma trooping before
tho mind. Some of these questions must
be solved by women themselves, or they
will never be solved. Women, my sis
ters, wake up! Put off the mean, the
ignorant and the trivial and steep your
souls henceforth in great thoughts.
Train yourself to be sincere as the day
light. Never even think an unworthy or
unkind thought of another.

tempered—above all, good tempered.
Geuda Springs, Kan., owes its pros
perity and good looks to its lady inhabi
tants. It is a mineral spring town, and
tho main business of the place was the
keeping of boarding houses and hotels,
and these were run by women. Having
learned to run boarding houses and pay
ing the larger part of the taxes at
Geuda Springs, the women resolved to
run the town. One of their number,
Mrs. Barnes, was elected mayor. Next
a woman city council entered on the
sceno, and the era of village improve
ment began. Sidewalks were laid, trees
were planted; village loafers and rowdies,
on the other hand, were uprooted and
cleared out. Now the little town is
very pretty and begins already to take
on city airs.
A good way for women to influence
human affairs is to begin with taking an
interest in city government and finding
out all there is to be known about ad
s-lnistering it along the line of honesty,
morality and order.
Women have often been very success

Some of the Curious Superstitions of Old
Bailors About the lMrd.
One of the best known of the sea
birds is the stormy petrel. It is ofteneet
seen during storms, flying above the
waves in search of the shellfish and
other small animals that are brought to
the surface by the tempest. Tho Bailors
call petrels "Mother Carey's chickens"
and do not view them with much favor,
owing to their being constant compan
ions of storms. Jack thinks that rough
weather may be expected when he sees
petrels about and is not quite inre that
they do not in some way ctuse the tem
pest. When the bird is on the outlook
for its prey, it seems co walk on the
water. Hence the seamen of olden timo,
in allusion to the apostle Peter's walking
on the water, called the bird petrel, from
the Latin Petrellus, "Little Peter."
So far from the sailor's being supersti
tions as to the capture of another kind
of petrel—tbe Cape pigeon—which is of a
black and white color and about the size
of a tame pigeon, I have known Jack to
take a hand occasionally in capturing
them as a bit of recreation during a dog
watch. In southern latitudes the Cape
pigeons follow a ship in thousands. The
method of catching them is peculiar. A
common bottle cork is tied to the end of
a long piece of thread and trailed astern
so that the cork touches the water. This
gives the required tautness to tbe thread.
As the birds fly in clouds from side to
side astern some of them constantly
strike the thread with their wings, and
the resistance is enough to turn them
over it, when the thread is wrapped
round the wing and the bird is hauled
on board. In this manner I have seen
hundreds caught in a day.
On one occasion a clipper ship, carry
ing passengers to India, captured pigeons
by hundreds, and the surgeon by sovno
mischance succeeded in entangling a
stormy petrel.
Now the doctor was an enthusiastic
naturalist and what to the sailors is
known as a "landlubber"—that is, he waa
on his first voyage. The doctor at once
took the specimen to his cabin and made
preparations to skin and preserve it. In
hot haste a deputation of seamen, headed
by the old gray haired sailmaker, came
aft with a request that the petrel bo set
at liberty, saying that otherwise the ship
and all on board would surely suffer.
Tho doctor, somewhat surprised, in
tended to set the bird free, but his en
thusiasm as a naturalist prevailed over
the superstitious warning, and when the
sailors had disappeared the bird was add
ed to his collection. The fact soon be
came known forward among the men,
and the doctor was regarded with black
looks by the crew for the remainder of
the voyage.
In the course of time the good ship
anchored in the Hugh river, and that day
at dinner the doctor suddenly died.
There was a gathering of the sailors
around the windlass that dogwatch, and
the doctor's sudden death was attributed
by the superstitious sailors to his slaugh
ter of the r<*t'-i»l.--St. Nicholas.
