PASADENA.
The Paving Question Again—Local
Allalrs.
Pasadena, Oct. 27.—At last theiong
threatened suit of the Perine Paving
and Contracting company vs. the City
of Pasadena, to recover $3000 which waa
put up by the company for the faithful
performance of their paving contract
with the city of Pusadena, and which
the council declared forfeited into the
city treasury, upon their refußing to go
on with tho work.
The complaint, which is iesued from
the superior court, was served on Judge
Wend, as president of the council this
morning. It acts forth that the Paving
company entered into a contract with
tbe city' of Pasadena to pave certain
streets, namely, Fair Oaks and Ray
mond avenues. >o accordance with
specifications adopted hy the city coun
cil and alleged to he, in compliance; with
toe state law ; that a certified check for
$3000 was put up by the company •■ a
guarantee of good faith and the laying
of tbe pavement in accordance with the
specifications as adopted.
Alter this bad been done the company
became aware, (or the first time, that
tbe proceedings of the council were
irregular aod invalid, through a notice
served on them by property owners on
the streets atlected, setting forth this
fact, and lurther elating that if the work
whb done payment would be contested.
Upon inbe'etigation ol the matter the
company became convinced that such
irregularities existed as to render it im
possible for tbein to collect their money
after tbe work was completed, and for
this reason they refused lo carry out
tbe contract, and anked that their check
be returned to thcni.
This the council refused to do and or
deied that the money be declared for
feited, all of which is claimen to be con
trary to law aud justice, and it is to
compel the return of f*,iis money to
gether with costs, etc., that judgment is
nfked for.
This, in brief, is a statement of the
cape and its details ni narrated in the
columns of the llun.u.u at the time of
its ucnurranco, are to well known to
Dcud further comment.
. U tint time unil ever since the
Hi -i.v ii has maintained that the coun
e l bad no right to confiscate, the $3000
PHI tip hv the paving company for ttie
rcatorj 11• a.t Ifac proceedings w«te irregu
i r and their money could not he col
t-Ctetl.
Now the matter has at last got Into
: tl ri'iirta, where n final .settlement will
in- bad and the proceeding will either
teclined rectilar or the city be coin-
I i-lied to pay back tbe money appro
printed, together with costs in a suit
which promises to be decidedly ex
pensive.
IT. I-ISUVTKKIAN SOCIAL.
The social given by the Young Peo
ple's eociety of the Presbyterian cbnrch

which was short but very much en
joyed, consisted of a violin solo by Mr.
I'd. Hutching; vocal solo, Mr. Frank
Catea, and piano selections by Misses
Dane and Parker. A series of amateur
blackboard drawings furnished much
amusement for the audience. Refresh

The very sensible suggestion is made
ly the Star that a special alarm be ar
ranged by the lire department to be
tiscd when they iurn out for practice.
Tim piesent practice is a nuisance and
t hull Id be changed in some manner.
(Jummenting upon an article which
appeared In the Herald a few days ago
upon the newspaper deadbeat question,
the Star says:
Tbe Herald proposes that the news
papers form a union to expose the class
who prov upon tbem by beating bills,
either advertising or subscription. Then
the rascal who haa "jumped" a bill at
Los Angeles will not be able to come to
Pasadena and do tbe same thing. One
bit of rascality will end hia usefulness
in Southern California, or aa far as tbe
operation of tbe union extends. We
second the motion ; and we know of sev
eral dead beata whose wings should have
been clipped long ago by a similar pro
tection. _

Tbe Walnut Crop.
Santa Ana, Oct. 27. —A landmark in

ANAHEIM IHRIOATORS ASSESSED.
The sale of tbe Anaheim irrigation
district bonds for (170,000 was accom
plish Borne time since to Chicago parties.
There has been some technical point
raised as to the validity of the bonded
indebtedness of the district. The legal
counsel for the district, however, hold
that the indebtedness ie legal and that
a levy should be made in the usual way,
in order that the interest on the bonds
might be paid. After considerable de
liberation and much discussion, a reso
lution, which reads as follows, waa pre
sented :
Resolved, That the Bum of 81 cents on
each $100 of tbe assessed valuation of
tho property in the Anaheim irrigation
district is hereby levied as an assess
ment for tbe purpose of raising a fund
for paying the annual interest for tbe
fiscal year ending July 1, 1894, on the
bonds amounting to $170,000 outstand
ing and sold to N. W. Harris A Co., and
that the secretary of this board do com
pute and enter into the assessment book
the proper sums to be paid aa assess
ments on the property enumerated in
aaid aesesßment book according to law.
It is thought that the 81 cents levy
will be reaiated in a legal way.
ANAHEIM MATTERS.
The Anaheim Gazette of the 26th says
that Charley Bauer bad the misfortune
last week while working on the Dunn
boys' hay baler to get a barley beard in
hia eye which haa necessitated his going
to Eos Angeles to consult an occuliet
about it and has since incapacitated him
from work. Although the sight was for
a time almost destroyed it is hoped that
it will soon be all right again.

POMONA.
The Fruit Exchange Ships Six Cars or
Prunes.
Pomona, Oct. 27.—The firat shipment
to be made by tbe fruit exchange from
Pomona will be tomorrow, and goea over
the Santa Fe route, and will be six car
loads—something to feel prond of at
least—of dried prunes. Tbey are being
loaded today, and will be ready by to
morrow. If there is such a thing as
getting better margins in freight by
train shipments, our managers of the
fruit exchange will no doubt use every
exertion to get tbe advantage of any
such concession on tbe part of public
carriers. Another point in favor of this
shipment will be the fact that the bulk
of prunes dried in this valley ia of a
good quality, being good green fruit,
and tbe drying season being exception
ally good, at least the greater portion of
the time.
The ladieß of St. Paul's Episcopal

REDLANDS.
City Ball Needed - A New Railroad.
News Notes.
Redlands, Oct. 27. —Thia city ia in
need of a city ball or some building
where all tbe city offices can be concen
trated. A repart baa been circulated
that Mr. Meade ia willing to construct a
two-story building on his lot on State
street, west of A. Ford's store, for the
use of the city entirely. The firat to be
handsomely arranged for the fire depart
ment, and the upper floors to be divided
for the various city ollic.es, tbe whole to
be lighted with electricity and furniahed
with all the modern improvements. The
combination of all the city business
would certainly be of great convenience
and desirable.
NEW RAILROAD.
Tbe Santa Fe will probably extend
its line into tbe Lake View country, the
new townsite near Moreno, at an early
date, an agreement having been reached
between the railroad company and land
company. Tbe road will doubtless ex
tend from Aleasandro to San Jacinto via
Moreno, and back to Perris via Lake
View. Tbe aale of land in the vicinity
of this new townsite has been very large,
and a railroad would greatly increase its
price.

On Baiuler's Top.
The first party to reach the top of
Mount Rainier this year made the trip
about five weeks ago. It haa been gen
erally thought that it would be impossi
ble to reach tha summit thia year be
cause of the immense amount of snow
that fell last winter. Dr. Joseph Felix,
professor of geology in the university at
Leipeic, who climbed Rainier three weeks
ago, pronounces it far more interesting
than any of the mountains of Europe or
of Mexico. Mount Rainier has 17 gla
ciers, 8 large volcano craters at its sum

sides.
Fonnd a Nugget Worth 8983.50.
One of the handsomest nuggets of
gold ever brought into Los Angeles was

lately been prospecting in the gold dis
trict 40 miles northeast of Mojave. The
nugget weighs exactly 56* ounces and
is worth $988,150. It is in appearance
like a medium sized cobblestone and
has evidently been twice as big as it now
is, for there is a mark showing where
half of it has been broken off. Mr. Reed
unfortunately could not find the missing
half.—San Francisco Examiner.

"What a curious wooden hammer,
Hiss Lilian I"
"Yes. It was presented to papa many
years ago by a lodge of some kind that
he was presiding over at the time. I sup
pose he used it when he wanted to open
the lodge or call some brother to order."
"Speaking of lodges, Miss Lilian, what
do you think of men who join them and
neglect their—er—wives and all that sort
of thing?"
'T think they are not doing their duty,
Mr. Spoonamore."
"S-so do I! We agree exactly on
that. A man who would abandon the
society of his —his wife, you know, to go
down town four or five times a week, and
meet a lot of other men, and go through
the mummery they call initiation, and
smoke cigars, and have a good time—
why, it isn't right, you know."
The young woman toyed with the lit
tle wooden hammer and said nothing.
"And that's why I feel bold to say,
Miss Lilian, that I think you and I
would—h'm—would never have any dis
agreements if—we should—because that's
the way I feel about it, and—and I've
never talked this way to you before, you
know, for I wasn't exactly certain wheth
er—and all that sort of thing. When
two persons agree on things like this, it
stands to reason that there might be
other things they would also—and you
haven't known me a great while perhaps,
but I feel that you're the only woman in
the world I want to marry"—

The First English Slave Trader.
Sir John Hawkins was the first Eng
lish slave trader. He formed a company
composed of the leading men of London
and fitted out three small ships, which
sailed in 1662. Later Queen Elisabeth
lent Hawkins Jesus a large ship of her
own of 700 tons, and took shares in the
second African company. She not only
equipped the ship, but put 100 soldiers
on board to provide for contingencies.
On the second voyage Hawkins bought
400 negroes and had a narrow escape
from losing them, owing to the lack of
water when he was near the equator.
But, as he piously recorded in his log,
"The Almighty God would not suffer his
elect to perish, and sent a„ breeze which
carried them safe to Dominica." This
was the beginning of the slave trade,
which lasted for more than two centu
ries before it was finally suppressed.—

THE BOY IN THE MOW.
There glides through the barn's mammoth
door
A sweet scented hilltop of hay;
An athlete, with strength bubbling o'er,
Now din/.-- it in forkfuls away.
Another ia stowing it buck,
With white pearls of toil on hia brow.
And, treading tho hay in his track,
Looms faintly tho boy in the mow.
Through crevices often can he
View, past the old barn wall of brown,
A river that loads to the sea,
A railway that drives to tho town. .
"Oh, when shall my fortune make hay
In yon iields of splendor, and how?
'Twill wait for full many a day;
I'm only a boy in a mow."
A cloud like a flaw from the sky
Is splendidly spread and unrolled;
Tho sun reaches down from on high
To fringe it with silver and gold.
"Oh, when will heaven's mercy my name
As bright, as those colors allow?
But earth has no glory or fame
To waste on a boy in the mow."
A cloud in the west, like a pall,
Creeps upward and hangs in the light;
It carries a gloom ovor all.
It looks like a part of tho night.
With clamor the thunderbolts swarm,
And trees bend in agony now;
" 'Tie thus, too, that poverty's storm
Would conquer the boy in the mow!"
The clouds have flown into a dream.
The birds aro discoursing in glee.
The smile of the sun is agleam
On river and hilltop aud tree.
Look up to the heavens, little lad,
And then to your earth duties bow.
And some day botli worlds may be glad
To honor the boy from the mowl
