DAVID MUNRO IS MISSING.
Idn Insurance Man Who Cannot Be Found. IHe Wnnt on a Sprue aud Ha« Not , Come Back. |,An Old Resident of the City Is Said to to Uava I>U«pp«»r*d — Tha Mote Ha i.eft. E David Munro, an insurance agent, gwho has an office at 121 South Broad pray, has been missing since last Wed nesday morning. Tbe cass is a myste rious one. jj Munro was an old resident of tbia laity, having been in tbe insurance busi ffbeti here for years. He was held in high esteem by those who knew him, 4pnd was always looked npon as a suc cessful business man. Despite these , good qualities, however, he is said to Jpave allowed himself of late to indulge too freely in the use of liquor. a Last Wednesday morning about 3 ■o'clook Munro ia said to have been [found on East First street in a state of He was taken to tbe I police station, where he deposited $5. » After his release tbat day he went to I! his room in tbe Francis lodging house, I 322 South Spring stree:, and wrote some [ letters, one of which was left with his bookkeeper, Mica Emsrick. A. Hoist, proprietor of the place. Bays | that Munro was not in his room after 8 t o'clock Monday night. He left a note | on a book to the effect that he would re t totn soon, nothiug else as to his inten tions being found m the room. A peculiar feature of the affair is the fact that Munro took a blanket from the bed, though for what purpose remains to be seen. All his clothing and other effects were left nndiaturbed. The contents of the note to the book keeper is contradicted by those who saw it. Mies Emerick stated last evening ' that tbe letter wae to tbe effect that she was to go ahead in conducting the af fairs of the office until his return, which would be in a day or two. She says Munro was suffering from a severe at tack of la grippe and was going to take a short rest. She denied that the let ter related to Monro's despondency, or tbat he did not care to live longer. An officer looked into the case yester day, bnt found no cine that would lead to the discovery of tbe mieeing man's thereabouts. No theory wae advanced by the police, and even bis friends are rt a loss to account for it at all. It is a fact tbat he haa not shown up at hie room for several days, and it ie a fact that he could not be found in the city yesterday. A gentleman in the same office sb Munro answered the question as to his whereabouts by saying that he was out of town for a few days. It was his opinion that Munro had gone to Ven tura county to do insurance among the bean farmers, as he had heard Munro express himself as wanting to make a trip for that purpose. Others are of tbe opinion that he haa secured a room in a remote part of the city and will be nil right in a few days. Whatever tbe result may prove to be tbe case will be anxiously watched by Mr. Munro'e many friends. VINCENT RELIGIOUS CRUSADE. The Feature* of the Services Yesterday. Th« Kpworih Lt«|ae> The lar-t weekday meeting of tbe re ligion! cruaade being held at St. Vin cent Methodist church, on Twenty ninth street, was opened with a praise and song service led by Mr. Tubbs, as sisted by a choir of 20 voices. Mrs. President Moffatt sang the song, No Book is Like the Bible, as a solo. Rev. Fretz led in prayer. Rev. B. Corey of Pomona conducted tbe evening's service as a Bible reading on tbe subject of What Shall I Do to Be Saved ? The announced topic had been a discourse on Beginnings, but consider ing this was the last evening ol the re vival, the speaker considered it more important to make this meeting a serv ice for tbe unconverted. The speaker took three Bible charac ters, explaining tbe means of conversion which were used in each case. Like characters live today. Timothy was the first character taken up. He had a bedrock of character on which to build tbe truth. He was bonsst and had descended from godly parents; was educated, and when Paul proved to him that the gospel was the truth, he lived it and became a dis ciple. There are such young men today. Every such young man should do the right as he sees it, and leave quibbling and doubts behind. The second character taken up was a woman named Lydia, a seller of purple. She was devout, but was not a Christian. She became a Christian through Paul's preaching. There are Buch people to day— people who claim to be religious bnt have no saving knowledge of the gospel. They are afraid of being scoffed at by their friends if they make a strong stand, bat have a half belief in the rigbteonsness of Christ's work. The third case waa that of the rough Roman jailer. He was a bard, strong, brave man, afraid of nothing, scoffing at the Christian disciploß. At midnight, when the earthquake came to deliver Paul, he accosted thia man tbat he had scoffed at but a few hours before, and was changed from a bitter man to tbe simplicity of a child, crying "Wbatshall Idoto be saved?" He was turned to the Christian faith. God will not throw away a bit of a man's morality, but will build upon it and make it stronger in Christ Jcsub. The wicked mußtbe changed wholly. The speaker related many personal in stances of the unconverted saved by the gospel. Mra. Moffatt sang "He Saved a Poor Sinner Like Me." A conaecration service waa held around the altar, participated In by young and old Christians. No services wilL be held this evening, bnt services will be held on Sunday as follows: 10 a. in., Junior league prayer meeting; Vincent Guard prayer service; young ladies' meeting. 11 a. m., ser mon, The Mission of theChrlßtian, Roy. F. Y. Fisher. 3p. m., Sunday school; "Home Sunday;'' review chart; chart taik on the home, by David 0. Cook; Miss Kendall will sing. 6:30 p. m., Ep worth league, subject, The Christian Home, led by E. L. Vogel. 7:30 p. m., aong service; gospel address by Rev. Fisher. One of the most active agenta in the religious worka of Vincent M. E. church ia tbe Epworth league, tbe youne peo ple's aociety. It keeps the Christian young people at work, enthusing life into all departments of ths work. The officers of the league are: President, £. L. Vogel; flrßt vice-president, Rev. E. H. Fretz; second vice-president, Clint W. Lee; third vice-president, Solon Jessup; fonrth vice-president, Miss Luella Prentiss; secretary, Frank Greely; treasurer, Mies MargretHntton; superintendent junior league, Miss Pearl Strong. Tbe league proposes to flvee a jubilee social on tbe evening of hanksgiving day, to which every mem ber and friend of Vincent chnrch is ex pected to contribute a pound of some kind of provisions, which will be dis tributed among tbe poor. COLLEGE ATHLETICS. The University of Southern California at Football, etc. There is more activity in athletic circles at the University of Southern California than has been manifest for many moons past.

The students are out on the athletic field every afternoon practicing the latest and most scientific plays and are getting into prime condition for the first champion ship game wbich is to be played on the university athletic grounds next Mon day afternoon with the Throop univer sity team of Pasadena. A second foot ball 11 is organizing with Wilfred Twiss as captain. This popular college game is occupying the attention of the strong, muscular men of the school. The bon ton of the college still occupy their afternoons with ball and racquet. A lawn tennis tournament among the students is announced to take place on Thanksgiving day, under the auspices of the Excelsior tennis clnb. The events will be ladies' singles, gents' singles, gents' doubles and mixed doubles.

LOS ANGELES HERALD* SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 25. 1893 LONGER STOPOVER DEMANDED. If Refused, Los Angeles Will Drop the Midwinter Fair. Action Yesterday by the Chamber of Commerce Directors. The Tariff on Frnit—Tho Farmers' Alli ance—The Merchants' Association Given Assurances of a Warm Regard. Tbe board of trustees of the chamber of commerce met yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. There were present Di rectors Klokke, Stimson, Jevne, Pasons, Pike, Jones, McGarvin, Lankerehim, Severance and Freeman. Director Lan kerehim occupied tbe chair. A communication was read from E. W. Maslin, secretary of the state- board of trade, stating that the state board proposed sending Mr. John P. Irish as a special delegate to the next session of congress to represent the interests of tbe fruit growers of California in mat ters relative to changes in the tariff and asking tbat the chamber state its posi tion on the question of the tariff on semi-tropic frnits. The secretary was instructed to inform Mr. Maslin that resolutions had already been passed by the chamber advocating the continuance of the tariff on semi-tropic fruits. A communication was read irom P. K. Wood, chairman of the committee on entertainment of the Farmers' Alliance oi California, stating tbat the supreme council of the Farmers' Alliance contain ing representatives from all the states of the union was abont to conßidsr prop ositions with regard to their next meet ing and asking that the chamber assist in the effort to bring them to Los An geles. It was moved and carried that he be informed that tbe chamber would provide a hall for their meeting, and would undertake to arrange for some excursions for them. A telegram waa read from the mid winter fair committee now in San Fran cisco negotiating with the Southern Pacific with regard to time limit on ex cursion tickets and excursion rates, to the effect that the best proposition they had been able to secure was a 12-day extension of the time limit at one and one-fifth fare. The principal subscrib ers to the midwinter fund, who were present at the meeting, gave it as their opinion that the proposi tion would not be satisfactory to the people, and after some discussion it was decided to instruct the secretary to tele graph immediately as follows to the committee in San Francisco: At a meeting oi tbe board of directors of tbe chamber of commerce and sub scribers to the midwinter fair fund, it was unanimously resolved tbat you should insist upon visitors having not less than 40 da> « in California, and that tbe Southern Paciffc company should sell excursion tickets from and to all pointß in California at one fare for round trip, good for 30 days. Unless these points are conceded, it will be impossi ble to collect the subscriptions or raise any more money. Director Klokke brought up the mat ter of the floral fair which the Merch ants association of Lob Angeles proposes to give in tins city in the course of the winter and offered the following resolu tions : Whereas, The Merchants association of the city of Los Angeles is so actively engaged in organizing for tbe purpose of holding in the city of Los Angeles a floral and citrnß fair, a public spirited movement entitled to the cordial and undivided support of all citizens. fie it resolved, That the chamber of commerce, which from its first incep tion has been the promoter of many enterprises having in view the prosper ity and fame of Los Angeles, regard with pleasure the efforts made by the above named organization, and ten der it its unqualified sympathy and support, earnestly hoping tbat the fair proposed shall meet with tbe success it so richly deserves. While the resolutions were being dis cussed Mr. Freeman called attention to tbe fact that some members of the asso ciation seemed to be under an erro neous impression tbat v was the cham ber of commerce that bad asked for 15000 from tbe supervisors for the mid winter fair, which waa not the case; that they were also mistaken in sup posing that the chamber had ever op posed the holding of a citrus fair here in Los Angeles during the winter, lv proof of this, Mr. Freeman cited tbe reeolutions that were passed at the meeting of the chamber only a few days before the merchants' committee had waited upon the board of super visors to protest against tbe grant of $5000. These reeolutions were as fol lows : Baking-powder THE PUREST AND BEST. WHAT IS HOME WITHOUT IT? Resolved, Tbat tbe Southern Califor nia citrus fair, whenever held in tbe city of Los Angeles, has proven a marked success, gratifying alike to exhibitors, its patrons and tbe public generally. That in view thereof, we most earnest ly request the state board of agricnlture to again designates Los Angeles as the point for holding the next citrus fair, and tbat we call upon onr representa tives on said board in the interest of the citrus frnit growers of Southern Califor nia to nsa their best endeavors to secure said location. Mr. Forman stated that tbe directors of the chamber wonld be glad to assist tbe merchants in their endeavors to have the citrus fair here. Director Klokke's resolntions were then pat and were unanimously passed. The board then adjourned. BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS. They Say Public Necessity Requires tba Flgacroa-strMt Opening.

In 10, 20, 40 and 80-acre farms, to suit purchasers, on credit. Terms at low rats of interest THK PROPERTY WI OFFER COMPRISES THE WELL-KNOWN CHINO RANCH. IN THE center of which is the town of Chino, on the line of the Southern pacific railroad, about three miloa south of Pomona and Ontario. Surrounding the property is the valley portion of tbe Chino Ranch, comprising 10,000 acres lying north and east of Cbino creek, subdivided into 10-aere tracts, which have a gradual decline toward the soath and southwest, giving ample natural drainage for successful cultivation. In 1801 the Beet Sugar Company was organized and the refinery built and put in operation at Chino, in a central portion with reference to the property. The result obtained from the operation of the factory for the few years past snows a remarkable degree of adaptability of the soil to thesuccestful cultivation of the Sugar Beet, both in amount of production and in per centage of saccharine matter, and aIM, in the efficient capacity of the manufacturing plant. The factory haudled during tho present seasou of 18911 1000 tens of beets per day, and have from 600 to 900 tons per day coming in continuously for the entire campaigu, covering a period of nearly- four mounts. It Is proposed now to increaie the caDaclty of the factory by the erec tion of an additional building and machinery to suit the requirements of increasing produc tion. The returns for tl.e present campaign have been a total yield of over 15,000,000 pounds of sugar, which have heeu shipped out as crude sugar to be refined elsewhere. Under a direct and specltio contract batween Mr. Gird and tbe Chlno Valley Boet Sugar com pany, a corporation whichiustitqtcd and operates the lleet Sugar Industry, they agreed to pur chss j from Mr. Gird or his successors all the beets grown on the ranch for years to come, and at the present date, about November 1, 18911, before the commt neerrent of the next season, a fixed price is established that the factory wiii pay for the beets at maturity next season. This insures the planter in tne market for his crop, and with the price that Is tixed. before he takes any risk in the matter or mates the first move towards turning over the ground. Possibly there is no other branch of Industry where calculations for future results can bs made so readily or so correctly calculated upon, and returns realized In so short a time as in ths ultlvatlon of the Sugar Beet under such auspices. Whl'e speaking particularly Id regard to tho important indnstry of beet growing for the manufacture of sonar, estimates of general fruits should not be lost sight of, as a great portion of the land is especially adapted to Deciduous Fruits and Deciduous Trees. Orange groves planted on portions of the Ranch are coming forward, and olives, figs, aprl cots, prunes, pomegranates and berries, in fact California fruits of all kinds, seem indigenous to tbe soli. It is also demonstrated that corn, barley, wheat, iud iv fact all the cereals and vegetables, flourish in this soil and attain a high dogree of perfection. The townsite of l liino, located at a convenient point with reference to all portions of the ranch, is a flourishing California town, with telegraph, telephone and express offices, schools and churches. Moaus of communication and transportation are ample. The Southern I'ajllia railroad runs its main line direct Into Ohiuo, and is four miles distaut from Pomona snd Onta rio, on tbe main overland line, aud iv addition is tm proposed extension which Is now assured from Pomona, through Chino, to South Riverside and Elßlnore. The following are a few of the advantageous features of the Chino valley: First, the culti vation of the Kugar Beet, which ln>ures a profit; IB >ons is an -.veiage crop, but M tous is not unusual; which is received by the factory at a fixed prirm of :f 1.50 per ton, which during this present season of 1803 hss averaged the grower from to tiOO per acre net, and clean above all expense of working the ground, planting aud harvesting the crop and delivering at tha factory. We invite land seekers generally who are desiring to secure profitable investments to exam ine this valuable property, which offers a field for health, profit or investment. Four passenger (reins in and out of chino every day. We Invite correspondence. For further particulars, address or call on us. WOLFBKILL TRACT a private: sale:. TIE teby]SolM[™ S!
