E David Munro, an insurance agent,
gwho has an office at 121 South Broad
pray, has been missing since last Wed

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.

■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
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;

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

The University of Southern California at
There is more activity in athletic
circles at the University of Southern
California than has been manifest for
many moons past. First in importance
just now ia football. This was given an
impetus by the organization of the
Southern California Intercollegiate Foot
ball league which will play a series of
games for the championship of the
southern colleges of the state. 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.
Field sports do not seem to have
taken much of a hold on the student
athletes, and very little direct practice
is indulged in for track athletics. The
Athletic association will hold a field
day among the students beginning on
Fridsy morning, December Ist. The 14
events of the day's sports will be a 100
--yard dash, 220-yard dash, 440-yard daah,
ono mile run, one mile walk, hop, step
and jump, high jump, pole vault,
running broad jump, 100-yard three
legged race, standing broad jump,
standing high jump, wheelbarrow race
and one mile bicycle race.
Baseball is held in abeyance until the
football season is over; still a slight
amonnt of practice has been taken al
ready. The new diamond has been laid
off and the back-stop erected.

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

ing and asking that the chamber assist
in the effort to bring them to Los An
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
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
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
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

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
