Chief Oubkan liaving resigned, Mr.
Dan Moriarty was yesterday appointed

has filled tbe position before quite
creditably, aud euatained a severe in

The late severe weather appears to
have done very little damage to the

in tbe San Gabriel vailey. Aitadena

from Rivorside and other renters of

The appointment of Hon. William D.
English aa aurveyor of the port of San
Francisco ia an instance in which an
indefatigable party worker lias been
recognized by the administration. Hie

Tit eke are chances that a distressing
fate has overtaken Mr. Lang Winston, a
young gentleman who accompanied a
bunting party up the San Gabriel canon
last weak. On Friday he started out to
hunt up tbe burros, and he has not
since been heard from. There are grave
fears that he perished in the Btorm of
Friday nigbt. The whereabouts of the
rest of the party are known. Aa Mr.
Winston ia an experienced mountaineer
and ie familiar with the country it is
hoped that he may yet turn up.
Jack The Slashes haa created no
little anxiety in Washington by his pe
culiar prankß. It is paaaing strange that
the police force of tbat city has not been
able to run him down. The last sensa
tion is his announcement of bis inten-
Hon to Blasb President Cleveland him
self. Now this may be a hoax of some
sensation lover, who is anxious to fool
the newspapers and stir tbe marrow of
society, but then it may have a serious
■Leaning. One thing is sure, and tbat is
that .Tack has already cut to pieces the
furniture, carpets and hangings of the
elegant green room of the White House,
and that notwithstanding the fact that
the gronnda and building itself are well
patrolled. Forewarned iB forearmed.
The crank is abroad in tbe land, and it
is just aa well to take precautions which
in ordinary times woold be ridiculous.
Two of our American presidents have
been assassinated, and the lives of at
least two others have been attempted.
THE MIDWINTER FAIR.
The chamber of commerce ban issued
Bulletin No. 1, relating to Southern
California at tbe midwinter fair. It
saya truly that the enterprise hae now
reached a stage thatadmita of no further
question as to ite success, and tbat it
will surpass in point of magnitude any
thing ever Been in tbis country with the
i exception of the Columbian exposition
Jat Chicago. It might perhaps have
been well to have also made an excep
tion of tbe centennial, at Philadelphia.
Seventy buildinge are either in courseof
erection or in contemplation. It is a
matter for great regret that Santa Bar
bara and Orange have declined to enter
the league of southern counties, pre
ferring to erect buildings of their own,
or to seek some other method of mak
, ing their exhibit. The executive com
i mitteeof the Midwinter Fair association
consists of J. S. Slauson, president,
i Charles Forman, treasurer, and Charles
i Silent, T. I). Stimson nnd D. Freeman, '
of Los Angeles county, R. H. Young,
of San Diego, T. S. Ingham, of San Ber
nardino, J. R. Newberry, of Riverside
, and F. A. Foster, of Ventura. These
! gentlemen are noted for their excep
tional energy and standing in the com
munity, and there is little doubt but
that, in their energetic handß, the work
of securing an adequate representation
of the southern counties in the Sunset
City will ha accomplished satisfactorily.
1 The bulletin irom the chamber of com
, merce d« e.ls uuon the necessity of se
curing a thorough representation of onr
' pnducts at the Midwiuter Fair. Speak
I ing of the Southern California building
I it Bays:
A building will be constructed for the
reception ol the extiibtta of the counties
in the association, for which an admira
ble location has been granted in the
center of Ihe fair grounds. The build
ing, 90x160 in Bias, and 50 feet high,
j will contain nearly twice aa much cx
i hibit apace as Hazard's pavilion in Lob
Angeles, where the citrus fairs are held,
j The design of the architect, Mr. Sumner
P. Hunt, ia at once elegant iv appear
ance and convenient in arrangement.
The contract for its construction will be
let within a few days, and tbe building
will be completed and opened by the
Ist of January.
The gentlemen who have this matter
in hand very juatly attach great im
portance to the excuraions by sea and
land which it is proposed to run from
San Francieco to Loa Angeles and the
other southern counties. Those who
have been attracted by our exhibits will
naturally wish to see the region from
which they came, and here is where we
will reap a rich reward for our outlay
and work, Probably a million people,
during tbe progress nf the fair, wiil visit
Golden Uate park, and a large propor
tion of them will undoubtedly drop
down to Southern California. Tbe com
mittee will meet at tbe chamber of com
merce tomorrow at 10:30 i.. m , and
there ought to be and probably will be
a large attendance. No time should be
iost in pushing the preparations to have
tbie section fittingly represented at the
opening of the fair.
The action of tbe Los Angeles savings
tanks in announcing their willingness
0 pay all demands oi depositors with
iut waiting for tiie expiration of tbe
lotice required by law ie judicious and
easeuring. Tbe fact i» that these in
titutions have been managed with
lotable skill and sagacity, and they
lave proved themselves to be amongst
he soundest banks in the United States.
there was never at any time tbe slight
)Bt cause for any anxiety as to our
>anks, with the single exception of the
Dity bank. The instant recovery from
in unreasonable scare at tbe opening of
lie past summer showed how conserva
tively, honestly and skillfully our banks
ii all kinds have been managed. Fre
juent references are made to the legal
reserves ol eastern banks. These re
;erveß are twenty-five per cent, of tbe
ieposits. During the past summer the
New York banks ran away behind this
figure and were obliged to isßue within
a fraction of $42,000,l)u0 worth of clear
ing house certificates to keep on their
feet. The Lis Angelea bankß far ex
ceeded tnis legal reserve of the New
York banks, some of them doubled it
and in n few instances practically dollar
for dollar was iv the bank vaults. No
banks in the United States made a bet
ter record for cash on hand. Our savings
bankß have always shown every indica
tion of the most intelligent management,
and the promptness with which they
have recognised the improved financial
situation and the re-assured sentiment
01 the community is highly gratilying
to the well-wishers of l.os Angeles.
Universal regret was expressed in
Las Angelea that Coquelin and Hading
and their company made such a short
stay here. The Binglo play in which
they appeared scarcely afforded an op
portunity for the display of their versa
tile talents. We have a large French
population in thia city and many Ange
lefios understand French, and both
would have been delighted to assist at
tha highly artistic repreeentationß of
these gifted players. Monsieur Coquelin
was scarcely Been at hie best; or,
rather, the piece did not admit of the
display of lub varied range of ability,
although liia histrionic capabilities
were clearly iudicated. Madame Had
ing created a charming impression.
She possesses in an exceptional degree
the beauty of geniue, and ia strik
ingly endowed with aenaibiiity, paasion
and fire, to which ahe adds a magnetic
voice and queenly carriage. Perhaps
the moat interesting feature of the
performance waa theevidence it afforded
of the consummate perfection of the
French school of acting. The inethodß
of the Comedie Fraucaise, elaborated
with painßtaking care since the days of
Moliere, ahow the degree to which grace
and elegance can be carried by compe
tent artiata. A cloae inapection of thie
refined echool of tbe dramatic art would
LOS ANGELES HER ALP t THURSDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 23, 1895.
be productive of great benefit to both
English and American actors. Madame
Hading ha* many features of resem
blance to Sarah Bernhardt, and ia in
I line of succession to the honors of that
! distinguished actress.
Thosb who deaire to see the sugar
bounty legislation remain on tbe statute
books would do well to bestir them
selves. No doubt tbe industry will be
self-Bupporting in a few yeara, and it
will then be possible to dispense wilh
national aid, but this is scarcely the
case now. It is emphatically an "in
fant industry," and it ia one of the few
instances of a protected interest by
which the farmer has been known to
benefit. The United States pays |tio,
--000,000 a jear for foreign sugars, and it
ia highly desirable that the country
should be self-sustaining as to this im
portant product. Those who have put
up expensive plants on the Btrength of
congressional legislation have a moral
right to enjoy the benefits of the law
for a few years, at least.
The gold value iv n silver dollar
amounts by the latest quotation of the
silver metal to about 54 cents. The sil
ver value of a gold dol.ar ia about $1.85.
The present ratio between the gold and
silver dollar ia 2!»5. Quite a contrast to
the old established ratio of lti to I—a1 —a
atandard of value that waa substan
tially maintained for Hundreds of years.
Mr. Bland, wtio has been the indomit
able champion of silver since its demon
etization in 187.1, announces it to be his
purpose to introduce a free coinage
measure on the assembling of congress,
though he disclaims any intention of
interfering with the passage of the new
tariff bill, ibis will give the rosuibers
af both houses an opportunity of putting
themselves on record after having heard
irom their constituents.
Thebk is not as yet any evidence of
the Hush times that were to follow in the
east fast upon the repeal of the pur
chasing clause of the Sherman act. The
business depression continues, aud
money is still being heaped up in the
financial centers of the country. The
silver scare having served its purpose,
tbe tariff is now being used as the great
bugaboo. Los Angeles is today in a
better plight than any other city in the
United States, allowing for population,
and more enterprises looking to devel
opment ;*.re now going forward in tbe
Southern counties than in any portion
of tbis broad land.
The Southern California Improve
ment company propose to give an ex
cursion Saturday next to a point on the
Mojave river, four miles west of Dag
gett, where they are about to take 25,
--800 miners' inches of water for the pur
poees of irrigation. A great canal has
been built there, which will irrigate
10,000 acres of fertile lands.
Fanny Davenport'a Cleooatra is now
in the fourth season of its succesa. With
Shakeapeare'B play, Antony and Cleo
patra aa tbe model for hie motif, Sardou
haß constructed, with all the resources
known to the playwright of tbe
nineteenth century, a dramatic pageant,
such it is claimed, as has never been
equalled on the American stage. Among
the scenes of panoramic design, accom
panying the action of the play, are the
bark of Yentiß Bailing on the Cyndua
river, upon which occurs the meeting of
Cleopatra and her lover, Antony; tbe
Palace of Ramesea, the Terrace of
Memphia, the I'alace of Actium, the
Temple of Isis and tbe ante-chamber of
Alexandria in which Antony dieg and
Cleopatra commits suicide. The feigned
Buicide, witli ita accompanying horrora
of live roptileß wriggling in contortions
over the iieroine'a bosom, would be re
pulsive were it not that it is all co ar

THE NOVEL DID ITS WORK.
Supposed Murder of a Minister
The Police Succeed in Unravelling
Peoullar Features of the Narrative
Which Illustrated a Variety of
Puluts In Regard to Polloe
The sensational story of the alleged
murder of a minister, in the heart of the
city, has at test been unravelled by tbe
Two detectives, Benson and Marsh,
have been working on the case day
and night, and have solved tbe mystry
jto their entire satisfaction. Tbe sequel
■to tbe story is as ludicrous as it is in
It was with a very disappointed air
that the detectives invaded the prem
ises where the murder was said to have
been committed. The expression on
their faces told that they knew it was a
mistake, yet they must go where duty
They searched long and patiently but
conld gain no clue to any crime until
they again interviewed the girl who first
told the story. Then the cat was let
out of the bag, and it was hard to tell
who the joke was on.
All bauds finally agreed that the old
miner who reported the story to the
police waß tbe victim.
The girl is addicted to the morphine
habit, while tbe miner, who is her j
friend, is of a convivial temperament, j
Between the two, it is a wonder the |
story was not more sensational in its
The girl had been reading a dime
novel, the plot of which caused tbe
sensation. While in a semi-comatose
state she told her friend, tbe miner,
the story, and be was inclined to believe
Lighted up to fever beat by the girl's
wierd description of the crime, the
old miner's imagination rose equal to
;he>occasiou and be thought it was tbe
truth. He immediately poured the
poured the etory into the ear of the
chief of police.
When tiie novel was thrown upon the
desk of Secretary Moffatt yesterday he
could not Buppress bis emotion. There
waa the picture of a villaiu murdering
a minister. A scene was given to show
bow the poor exhorter wae being stab
bed and how he waa buried in the cel
lar. In lurid coloring the story was
made complete—ao already published—
the minutest detail being given.
But a Btartling feature of the case was
that while the etory was being explained
at police headquarters another woman
rushed in and declared that she knew
the story was true; that she knew of a
minister missing from Santa Ana. She
wanted the case investigated. It has
not been decided whether she ie addict
ed to dime novels or not.
The corroborative features of tbe story
made it appear very plausible, but tbe
detectives will never forgive the author
of that dime novel, nor wae the maker
of tbe patent medicine which tbe girl
took before she told the Btory to her
miner friend. Tbe patent medicine con
tains morphine, and the girl says she
uses a bottle of it each day.
The etory created no little talk, even
tbe classic precincts of Santa Ana being
touched by its sensational qualities.
The Herald correspondent at Santa
Ana writes aB follows concerning it:
The atory that appeared in the Los
Angelea Herald, which alleged tbat a
Methodist minister wbo formerly lived
in tbis city, while visiting a former
acquaintance, a young girl that at one
time lived in Santa Ana but who is now
leading a reckless life in Los Angeles,
created quite a little excitement in this
place this morning, but after it r>a
thoroughly investigated and no minister
was found to be missing wbo filled the
description of tbe one said to have been
murdered, it waa 9-acided that there
was nothing in it.
Thus another sensation ie spoiled.
The Cnacholarly Search of a Lower
Rev. J. B. Stewart of Pasadena read
a deligbtiul paper before a large audi;
ecce at tbe Unity club last evening on
tbe above subject.
Dr. Stewart's paper abocnded in
witty remarks and anecdotes that
amused and interested hia hearers
throughout bis entire lecture. Ilia
paper in the main waa a defense of his
position on the Briggß controversy,
though from a point of view that showed
the ep?;ker'a broadnesa of feeling. He
said: orthodoxy ia represented by the
church with which I happen to be con
nected, and which my great grandpa
rents choße for me 100 yearß before I
was born. I say "happeo," for if I had
beco born in Cork tbe probability is tbat I
should be a Roman Catholic. It is my
misfortune that I am compelled to use
the apparently invidious word ortho
doxy, but I use it not absolutely but
conventionally. For orthodoxy means
neither truth nor falsehood, practically
considered evejy orthodoxy has been a
heterodoxy, and every heterodoxy haa
at least a chance of becoming ortho
dox v. In 1837 several synods of the
Presbytarian church were excluded.
They were then heretics. In 1860, with
out any change of opinion, they were
tiilteu bacj- and became orthodox by
being numbered with tbe majority. Re
ferring to Prof. Briggs' trial, he aaid he
was unfu innate in being tried by a
supreme court of 600 men while our
national supreme court conaistß only
of nine men. A pouular assembly
can never be judicial. The judicial has
no constituency. The extreme con
servative assumes that slowness iB al
ways safe and change always dangerous.
The slowest man I ever knew, while
jogging along with his old traps, was
smashed up at a railroad crossing. Re
fusal to change may be dangerous. We
now Bee that a man may be better than
iiis creed, or that one may be good
without one. The people are beginning
to cay, less creed aud more practice.
It is not Christianity that embarrasses
us in the preaching of a free gospel, it
is Eccieeiaaticiarn witn wtich Chris
tianity is bo often confounded.
Dr. Stewart made a strong plea for
the use of common sense in tbe study
of the scriptures, and not "light" over
"words:," meet fact with fact and r.ot
! theory. Illustrating this point, he said
| Honest Hans killed his neighbor's dog
! m self-defense. "Why," aaid the neigh
-1 bor, "didn't you puncii him with tbe
other end of the gun?" end Hans re-
I plied, "Why didn't you come at me
with the other end of the dog?"
I Nothing but a complete report could
do juatice to the paper of Dr. Stewart,
who read bis paper in that plain and
uuasauming manner that makes earnest
words so delightful to listen to.
Next Wednesday evening will be de
voted by the club to the poets' contest,
some 95 poems have been received and
many line contributions are noticed.

It is au establishment resembling Tiffany'i
that Is now being opened on South Bpllnj

able to gratify, as well as by the many who
wish to mskc a suitable present to some friend
and are often at a loss as to what they shall
choose for the purpose.
To i how the scale upon which this establish
ment will be conducted, It Is only necaasary to
state that over thirty persons will be regularly

win be carried. Fuither particulars in regard
to this interesting addition o the Industries of
Los Angeles will be given in future nnmbers.
