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 Eos Angeles coursing club, which
is composed of gentlemen who dearly
love and engage in the exciting and
exhilarating pastime of tiare hunting,
and who are the happy owners of Eome
! of the finest blooded hounds, famous for
| speed aud bottom, in the state, had the
I first of their annual series of meets in
i the llats near Long Beach on Sunday.
About 60 of the clnb, with their
friends, went down ou the morning

The doge, of which there were twelve
as good dogs as ever slipped a leash,

The fire alarm at 9 o'clock laat night
was caused by a defective firebox in the
bakery of Edward Millaap, corner of
Vernon and Central avenues.
The department responded promptly,
but the location waa at too great a dis
tance to he of any Borvice. The build
ing was burned to the ground, causing

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORJNING. OCTOBER 81, ISM.
STUDENTS' Y. M. C. A. DAY.
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

FRY ACQUITTED.
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.
