THE MIDWINTER FAIR PROJECT.
Mr. Sumner B. Hnnt Selected as Architect. The Proceedings Yesterday of the Executive Committee. Orange and Banta Barbara Counties Mot Coming Forward Very Fait. Deaialvn Action Taken by tbe l>etegatea. The meeting of the executive commit tee of the midwinter fair commissioners for the various Southern California counties was held at the chamber of commerce yesterday afternoon. Unlike the meeting of Thursday the committee took positive steps in regard to the proposed erection of the building for the exbibite of the southern coun ties. It waß decided to Bend au archi tect to San Francisco to view tbe grounds and ascertain the necessary points before draughting the final plana for the building. It appears that Santa Barbara and Orange counties will not take part in tbe exhibit, but they may yet be per suaded to bear at least a part of their share of the expeneeß. Mr. J. S. SUuboii occupied the chair and Mr. C. D. Willard acted as secre tary. The other delegates were: , Eos Angeles county, Messrs. Slauoon, Forman, Stimson, Judge Silent nnd Gov. Gosper. San Bernardino county, T. S. Ingham ; Riverßide couuty, J. R. Newberry, S. Craig. Ventura county, F. A. Foster. San Diego county, R. H. Young. The meeting really consisted of two parts. The first part consisted of the presentation of Judge Sitent's report and a general diecUH<iion of the build ing to he erected. This body however was unofficial and it waa not until the representatives met on the executive committee that anything definite was done. THK rniil IMINAKY TOW WOW. The meeting waa called to order after which Jndjje Silent presented his report of the dealings with the northern man agers. He stated that the southern representatives had been most cordially received, and had been granted all pos sible concessions. The site selected iB the best in the fairgrounds. It ia upon an elevation between the two main entrances and is also between the Fine Arts building and the Agricultural building. He did not think that any great lonndation would be necessary. Judge Silent stated in addition that he hail discussed With the park commission, commit'ee oi the midwinter fan, nnd with several of the officials the project of this county main taining a peimaneut exhibit, ami while tiie president hud thought well of the proposition tie would he unable to per mit it as it would establish a trouble some precedent. After a short diNCiiseion of the build ing Mr. J. A. Bradoeer, tha architect, was called upon for come estimates of the cost of erecting a building an out lined in his plans, lie stated tbat he had been informed by a reputable con tractor that the building could be erected for about $10,000. Mr. Sumner P. Hunt also presented plans and was nuked for estimates. He etated that while lie did not see why bis building would cose any more per tqure loot than Mr. Bradbeer's, still when he drew the plana he thought they wonld cost much more than the figure given by Mr. Brad beer. Judges ilent said that in the selection of tiie hill site the building could be erected at a much less cost than if a site j in a hollow or on leyel aronnd had been taken, for on the hilt several eides of the building could be left plain, only two requiring decoration, Mr. Forman aeked if a plan of the grounds would not be necessary to the i.rchi' * : in helping them to make Soti uiates of the coat. Mr. Hunt replied that he preferred seeing the ground before making the plans. Mr. Young said that the only way to proceed was to ask for bids or else se lect an architect and tell him to go abend with the drafting of designs and making of estimates. Governor Gosper thought that as Santa Barbara county was not repre sent"!!, it would be well to adjourn until today, when that, delegate would be here. Ho did not think it would be rinht to bind that county to any agree ment when it was not represented. Mr. Young replied that the majority of the representatives were preeent and tfiev ought tp go in aud get to work. The election of officers was then moved for by Mr. Newberry. Put as Lob Angeles county bad not (elected its representatives it could not be done unti: this county wbb represented. A tieneral discussion of the kind of buiidinit to be erected was held, but wan terminated by the cnair, who sug gested that the meeting suspend its session in order to give Los Angelea i county a chance to name its delegates. THK EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. After the delegates of Loa Angelea county were Belected the executive com mittee was called to order. The first work done waa the diecu* »ion of the proposition to send an ar chitect, to San Francieco in order to proceed with the work. Mr. Hunt's design was selected, and he was chosen to go north. The design Belected is in the Moresque style and is a very handsome structure. It consist ! of a main hall 100 feet square and two 60 foot wings on either side. It will be handsomely decorated. The denign iB subject to such modifications ac the committee may desire to conform with tbe requirements of the exhibits of this section. The election of officers resulted aa follows: President, Mr. Slauaon : tem porary secretary, Mr. Willard. Mr. Newberry, as one of the former committee on transportation to ace tho Santa Fe people, bad stated that the officials were waiting until they came from some organized body, and that aa soon as they knew the committee had been regularly organized the desired ratea would be forthcoming. Ao Mr. Willard had declined to continue per manently as secretary the chair sug gested that a nominating committee to select the secretary and treasurer he ap pointed, aud on motion of Mr. Newberry the following were Belected. Mr. Wil lard, Mr. Slauaon and Judge Silent. Judge Silent said that auditing, finance, literature and exhibit com mittees should also be selected. Or: th suggestion of Mr. Newberry the commit tee on exhibits was stricken out, and it was decided to appoint tha other com mittees at the next meeting. A transportation committee, to re port at the next meeting, was blbo chosen, and consisted of Judge Silent, Mr. Slsnson and Mr. Young. Mr. Foster of Ventura county then read portionß of a letter he had received from Mr. Barber of Santa Barbara. It stated that that county would put only $700 in the proposed building as ita share of the assessment. Mr. Foster said tbat, from what he had learned, that couuty Bceuied determined to make » separate exhibit at ttie midwinter lair, and did not to go in with the other counties; Mr. Willard alao rend a lettor from the chamber of commerce of Orange county to the effect that that body as nn organization would take no part in the midwinter fair project. Mr. Willard nddod thatasthat body had heretofore always done all the work of thia nature it appeared as though < >range county would have to he counted out. Judge Silent then moved that the aecretary be instructed to correspond with the commercial bodies oi Fresno, Tulare, King, Kern and San Luis Obispo with a view to their amalgamating with the remaining southern counties. This motion caused eonaideiable dieeuasion, Mesßrs. Newberry, Young, Forman anil others opposing it on the' gtoiinde that the object of the present movement waa to have a distinctively Southern Cali fornia diaplay. The motion w;ib finally withdrawn. Judge Silent also favored Bending out organizers and com mittees both to Santa Barbara and Orange counties and en deavor to bring them into the project with the other live northern counties. While eeveral agreed with this, it waß generally declared to be inopportune at the present atage of affairs. Mr. Forman Baid that Santa Barbara county had been treated with full cour tesy and consideration, but the mayor of the city aud several other persona had evinced no desire to enter with the oilier counties. Judge Silent declared the proposed exhibitß of the Santa Barbara peotile to be a "catch penny ai fair," aud to be nothing but an exhibit ol Beaie. It waß disgraceful for the may or of that city to he concerned in it, and the speaker was positive that the good people of that county would rebel at the condition ot affairs. It was a private enterprise and was not right. It waß however regarded in San Francisco aa the exhibit of the en tire county of Santa fiarbara. .Mr. Stimson said that when he and Mr. Forman went to that county to talk up the fair project they told the people they were not "boomers" for tiie fair but presented merely a business propo sition to them. No enthußiasm waß Bhown in the intended project. After a general discussion the president asked when the various counties would be ready to pay up their aßseeamentß. Riverside and San Diego both announced themselves ready. It was positively decided not to un dertake letting any contrncta until a proper amount o! the assessment wae on hand. On motion of Mr. Newberry it was de cided that the various representatives of on the executive committee be ready to put up one-half of the assesamentß of their respective countiea. The meeting adjourned subject to the call of the president. i SOME EXCITING CONTESTS. Thu Coursing Mutch ut Long Beach nn SuiidHy.

The Final Proceedings ot the Session Yesterday. College Men Discuss the Progress ot Christian Work. K. F. Hahn of Pomona on the Organiza tion of Iho V. M. O. A.—The CloalUK »»ni»K Sni„ of tho Convention. The last day's sessiorl of the Students' Y. M. 0. A. convention began yesterday morning at :> o'clock in Aristotelian hall. A quiet missionary prayer opened tbe day's work. Tbe discussion of topics began with an addresß on the Relation of the Per ( sonal-Work Class to the Weekly Meet | ing by I). M. Brockman of Occidental. Tho Personal-Work claee is the tioly of holies of the Y. M. C. A. temple. The subject of tbe weekly meeting should be timely and not chosen haphazard, but the student life should be studied and appropriate topics discussed. Skillfully conducted meetings are important, but after the impression is made upon the unconverted it should be sealed by per sonal work. Why heat the iron at all, if not to strike a blow ? Pereonal work is a solemn work, but it is Biinplo, joy ful work. Dean Matthew of the TJ. S. C. offered prayer, followed with a talk on Prayer in Personal Work, by B. E, Sibley,Chaf fey. He cited instances of tbe powerful influence exerted by personal example. The example of an earnest Christian man can do wonders. Karnest prayers have a wonderful influence in keeping up activity. This activity uplifts Chris- I tiaus and creates interest among the unconverted. The question was dis , cussed by Smith and Barrows of Po mona, Dilworth ol Occidental, Sampson of Chnffey and Dean Matthew of the U. S. C. The next paper was by H. W. Cuin mings of the U. S. C , upon the subject: The Way in Which to Interest the Christian in Distinctive Christian Work of the Y. M. 0. A. There are many fellows wfio are glsd to do work in tiie finance and reception committees, but it ie hard to get them to do distinctive Christian work. We must bs interested in the work in order to be a zenlous worker. You can't be interested in a thing you don't love. Then we must bave hope to inspire ua. We can't drum up love or hope in a heart, Some work of the Holy Ghost mnst be performed on the heart before we can love God, So, also, wits' hope. We must live pure lives to get the Holy Xifioet in our Heart. The Bible teaches of ttie Holy Ghost and should be studied. The Y. M. C. A. directs interest into the right methods and channels, Mr. Cummings made an earnest, touching appeal to the Btudentß to re ceive ttiis Holy Ghost. Mr. Hunt spoke briefly along this I same line, E. F. Hahn, of Pomona college, ad- I dressed the conference on tbe topic: t The Organization of tne Y. M. C. A. | Method 16 the track upon which the en i aine of the Holy Spirit runs, If organi | zation is neceßßary in business, it is also necessary to accomplish the best results in Christian work. It ia neceaßary to organize (1) because it brings success, and (2) because Christ used organiza tion. Judas carried the money bag, so wo are told, and Christ sent his dis ciples cut in companies. The committee system of tbe Y. M. C. A. is a good method of work. All the committeemen must be united to do the moat effective work or, like a misplaced wheel of a machine, it throws the whole association out of gear. We do not think of the importance of the work of the Y. M. C. A. nor do we ap preciate the responsibility. We must be wide awake and have gumption in doing Christ's work. Brooktnan of Occidental told how tbe : Bible class comtnittoo worked at his college and how organization worked there. Work by the studentß them selves creates interest and develops workers. Mr. Hunt verified the fact that in his travels he had found that the Y. M. O. A. is strongest where it ia most ttior- (Highly organized. Some students spend much time on the social part of the association, as though it were the object of the association, wbile in truth it is hut a means to accomplish tbe end —a spiritual life. Tbe experience of Mr. Simon in work ing np the Bible Btudy classes at Yale college was related. Organization ac complished the work. Association in creases the love of Bible Btudy, where individual Btudy wonld grow lax. Committoeon resolution, consisting of Barrows of Pomona college, Sibley of Ohfeffey college, Dllwortb of Occidental college and Embree of the University of Southern California, wae appointed to draft resolutions for the convention. AFI'ICKNOON SESSION. The afternoon eeaßion of the confer ence began at 2:110 witb song servicd. Tbe opening address of the afternoon was given by H. 1\ Dilworth of Occi dental on Tbe Weekly Meeting. The personal work has been the most suc cessful method tried to lift students up to a higher spirituality. S. S. Sampson of Cbafley spoke few parting words of exhortation. Can Yon Spare Time for the Weekly Meeting was tho theme Bpoken upon by H, F. Ward of U. S. C. The most com mon excuse of peraona for not attend ing Y. M. C. A. prayer meeting". This excuse Mr. Ward characterized as a falee excuse. He said that we may make time, strange as it may seem, by economizing time and methodically dividing the time given between the three sides of man's nature —the intel lectual, physical and spiritual. Knowl edge is a grand thing but do not let education keep out a deep spiritual life. The highest intellectual culture is con sisteut with the deepest spiritual life, in fact, they are truly synonymous. The Christian student should be a represen tative of Christ in the cla<s room as well as in the prayer meeting. He left a parting message thus: Win one soul ior Christ. Messrs. Ernbree. U. S. C, and Smith of Boniona led in short prayers, followed by Work for the night Is Coming. The Achievements of Our College Y. M. C. A. in Southern California. B. E. Sibley of Chaffey reported that the spir itual condition of that school bad been uplifted by personal work. Mr. Gillette of Occidental reported nine conversions this year at his col lege. A. B. Embree of the U. S. C. reported the best results of this year of bis asso ciation to be the experience gained. Several series of prayer meetings had been held. .E. F. Hahn of Pomona said the Y. M. C. A. wai the moat popular society of tbe school. Tbe most intellectual stu dents lead in this association. As much was subscribed for mission work by the Pomona students as for athletics—aiare thing. Prof. Goodrich of the U. S. C. said the strong men of the country are col lege men, and the strongest aro Chris tian college men. Dean Matttiew of the U. S. C. spoke of the value of inter collegiate associa tion o< Christian Btudentß. W. I). Ball, secretary of the I.oa An geles Y. M. C. A., addressed the confer ence. He characterized the ga-at stu dent body of the iand thu most dangerous thin? in American politics, tor they may make or unmake Ihe na tion. Love will make put thia dunger ous power into the right channel. Al this Htage the cimti.itLie on reao lutioiis resolutions reported as follOftl and the resolutions were adopted : We, tbe committee on resolutions, respectfully submit the following: Whereas, We recognize the interest taken by the international c :mi.-.mom m this distant portion ol their field iv thus sending to us Mt.

It Took the Jury Only Ten Minutes to Turn Htm l.oone. It took the jury just 10 minutes late yesterday afternoon to acquit young Fry, who has been on trial in Judge Smith's j court for soveral days accused of burg '■ lary. ! Tho outcome of the case ia regarded : as natoniahing in police circles. Fry and Carnahan were accused joint ly of entering old mr.n Khilich's room in the St. Charles hotel and relieving : hia pockets of over $100. I Carnahan was arrested and pleaded j guilty, lie made what he said was a ' clean breact of it. He Baid Fry was 1 equally guilty with him aud went with him when lie buried the money, Carna han got two years. On Fry's trial Carnfihan reiterated the statement about him. Y'isterday Fry went on the stand. He said Carna han had lied. He alleged that he had not known Rbout the hurglary until Carnahan told him, wfiiie they were riding on a etreet car. They went out and buried the money. After Caina han's arrest Fry said he got the money and hid it in another place, co as to have it handy to give to Carnahan. lie shielded Carnahan in the matter aud acted as his friend. When he waa ar rested, however, and waa asked about the ujoney, be told Detective Goodman where it was and all that he had to do with it. Fry was put through along cross-ex amination by Dupuy, but stuck squarely to his statements, and the jury evident ly beleieved him, becauce they agreed that he waa not guilty on the iie a t ballot.

That the Nevada Southern railway will coon be an accomplished fact ia a certainty. It appears equally as Bure that the new railroad will prove to be the golden key which will unlock the treasure vaults which will make Loa Angeles the commercial center of the west. 'The most remarkable deoositßof iron ore yet discovered on tr.ia continent," ia what the late Professor Newbury of Columbia college, New "lork, said con certing ttie iron fields which are to he tapped by tha Sonthern .Nevada rail roed. In describing the same depoeits Min ing Engineer Mulholland aaid: "The iron deposits are incredible. There are millions of tons, and the quality is in proportion to the quantity." As exclusively reported lutho Hekai.d of Sunday, a meeting was held at the chamber of commerce on Saturday, at which the project was discussed, Presi dent Blake of tho Nevada Southern be ing piesent, together with ex-Mayor Workman, who we.a chosen chairnan of the meeting. The projected road will reach within 50 miles ct the Union Facifir and within 7 r > milea of tne Rio tirade Western rail ways. Eaßy connections can be made with both railways, which must inevitably make Lob Angeles loe center of vast commercial interests. The iran and coal bede of Utah and Nevada are of course tbe treasures that the projectors of tbe enterprise rely on. ln an article upon these mineral re gions written by Prof. J. I. Newberry of Columbia college. New York, and pub lished in his "Genesis of iron oreß," the writer viewing the Bubjiot from a pnreiy scientific standpoint, gives the following glowing description: These ore beds constitute, perhaps, the remarkable deoosit of iron ore yet discovered on thia continent. With the exception of the great iron deposits of Southern Utah, the far west is but imperfectly supplied with this metal. Within this belt tbe iron outcrops are very numerous and striking. Perhaps 100 district claims have already been located upon them, each one of which wonld make the fortune of a mining company if situated anywhere in tho Miaßißsippi valley or the eastern Btateß. And one of the largest outcrops, though showing many millions of tons of ore apparently quite pure, ia thickly set along certain zoneß, evidently a strata of deposition, with cryatala of apatite from a quarter to a half an inch in diameter and two or three inches in length. Mining Engineer Mulholland, in a report %bont the Bame region, Baid: "Tbe iron depOßita are amazing; a full description would be incredible to peo ple who bave not gone over the ground. The quality of the ore in not fees remarkable than the quantity. It is the beet ore I bave over seen for making Beaeemer steel or in fact any other kind of ore. No min ing is repaired ; immense masses of iron —millions of tona —are piled up, and the ore could be rolled down chutes and loaded on board of cars. Nowhere else known to me, from Cape Horn to Ber ing strait, are all the conditions found for the auccesßful establishment of great iron workß." Concerning tbe coal deposits tbe same authority ie equally enthusiastic. He declares that the accumulation is equally large, and correspondingly fine iv quality. He says: "It is a very safe estimate that coal could easily be de livered on board railroad cars at a coßt of not to exceed $1 per ton, this to in clude all expense necessary in working the mines." A committee of seven, representing citizens of this city, has been appointed for the purpose of working up interest in the projected road, and for securing subscriptions. These gentlemen are : Ex-Mayor Workman, ex-.Vla.yor Hazard, W. C. Patterson, H. Jevne, J. M. Witiner, Mr, Kellurn and J. B. Eankerehim. Ex-Mayor Hazard and Presidetn Blake were seen last night by a Herald re porter, and B'nted that everything was in good working order to commence the work of building. To anyone who has investigated the matter, the words of Colonel Sellers, "there are millions in/it," become un neceasary. Every citizen who haß the welfare of Southern California at heart should as sist the enterprise in every way possible. THE COURTS. Cases on Trial Yesterday— New suits Filed.
