Nred Waking Up.
The second and final session of the
fomological society met yesterday morn
ing at Pasadena, with an increased at
■ endance over that of the opening day.
The morning programme consisted of
I papers by ex-Gov. L. A. Sheldon, Judge
, Franklin Blades of Pomona and Mr. D.
Edson Smith. The paper which waa to
have been given by K. W. Holmes of
Riverside, upon Leaaona of the Co-op
erative Movement, was omitted, owing
to that gentleman's abeence.
The paper of Governor Sheldon, upon
Tranaportatton, was one of the heat read
before the seaaion. He reviewed the
history of the various modes of travel
from the time of primeval man, and
showed the gradual change which
had come about, until in tbe nineteenth
century it is one of ths greatest factors
.n the advancement of civilization, and
calls for tha wisest legislation to prop
erly regulate.
His plan, briefly stated, was to con
solidate all the roads of the nation into
one system where the basis of present
coat oi reproduction to be reached ia
bonded for tbat sum, and that the in
come npon tha capitalization ehall not
exceed 3 per cent, and tbat government
shall revise rates co as to produce only
! money enough to pay necessary operat
ing expenses, an income of 3 per cent,
and a sufficient sum to make necessary
improvements and extensions.
1 By such consolidation it is estimated
! that exper.ee of operating can be re
duced $160,000,000 per annum, and a
(further saving to the people of $135,000,
--(1)00 on the basis of interest and divi
dends paid within the last few years,
f The syetem would be no more diffi-
Jpult than the operation of the poatal
J Tbe paper delivered by Judge Frank
fiin Blades upon tbe Nicaragua canal was
■ listened to with much interest. He was
' s\n earnest advocate of the Bcheme, and
, field that it would prove the means of
greatly assisting the development of the
Pacific coast.
\ D. Kdson Smith read a second paper
upon the same subject, saying in part:
As I understand this Echeme from
i Senator Morgan's report it is a petition
: irom a close corpora'ion asking üb, the
1 masses, to loan them $100,000,000, taking
iin part payment $70,000,000 of csnal
:'stock,, from which glowing dividends are
! It ia through just such class legislation
(as tbia present canal scheme proposes
{that tha people's land, money and trans
portation lines have been so monopolized
by classes, that today 32,000 people own
over half the wealth aud far more than
half the rightful heritage of 66,000,000
This brings ns to the question that
was asked me by a distinguished mem
ber of this society when I was diecußa
ing the same question at our Red lauds
I 'nesting. "Has not the building of the
..'acitic railroads resulted in great good
to the masses?" I answer emphatically
bo. They have been a curae to the
masses. They have given- immenee
wealth to a few persons at the expense
pi tbe masses; under the control of class
legislation our medium of tranaporta
| .ion, our medium of exchange, our nat
lral resources of wealth and our labor
aving inventions have been an absolute
:urae to the masses. Under just laws,
or and by the people, the entire pecul

nalleat degree the colossal robbery

The afternoon session opened with a
paper by Prof. Newton B. Pioree of
Santa Aua upon Recent Work on Plant
Dieeaae. He called aoecial attention to
the Florida leaf blight, which ha • been
introduced into the state through the
oareleasnesa of the state board of horti
culture. He recommended spraying,
which revivea the growth of foliage and
increases the production of fruit from 65
to 75 per cent.
Fruit Drying and Grading was treated
by Prof. 0. E, Tebbetts in a very intelli
gent manner. Incidentally tie men
tioned the combination of the dec: luoua
fruit growers similar to the one effected
by the citrua people. It is expected the
combination will increase the market
price and improve the quality of the
The closing paper was delivered by I,
O. Wood of Ontario upon tho pruuing
and curing of lemons. Many valuable
ideaa were advanced for the care of this
plant. The most important was that
lemons should be put on the market
after being enred not over one month,
they being in better condition for keep
ing then than later.
The session oloaed with a vote of
thanks to tbe people of Pasadena for
hospitality extended.
It was voted to hold tbe next meeting
at Pomona. The following officere were
elected for tbe coming year: President,

Auspicious Opening or a Hoat Interest
ing Meeting.
There was a large audience present in
the First M. E. church laat night to at
tend the oponing of the Young People's
Missionary conference, which will be
held again today and tomorrow evening.
Tbe affair is distinctively for tbe younger

with flags, palms and flowers. Two
large flags are featooned across the organ
and between them hangs a white satin
banner bearing the words. "Tha Battle
Is Not Yours but God's." On a wire
stretching above the pulpit are the
words in silver letters, "All tbe World Is
Our Field." Along tbe front of the balcony
are American flags and blue flags which
bear tbe names in white letters of the
countries where the mission work is be-
ing done.
The meeting was opened with a soug
service, after which Rev. A. W. Rider
epoke regarding the objects of the con
ference. It was in the interest of both
home and foreign work, and looked to
the evangelization of the world.
Miaa Clara Y. Morse, secretary of the
Y. W. C. A., was then presented and
briefly addressed the meeting.

Board of Public, Works Makes
a Recommendation.
The Main Street Car Line Scores a
Two Franchises That Will Oonll ot With

Hazard'M Proposition.
The board of public works tackled the
question of electric street railway fran
chises yesterday morning. Meaara.
Stroh;n, Innea aud Rhodes wore present.
W. J. Brodrick was there to urge ac
tion ou the petition of the Main Street
and Agricultural Park railway for an
electric railway franchise.covering Santa
Fe avenue to Third, Main, Hill, Eighth,
Hope, Eleventh, Pearl, Georgia Bell,
Sixteenth, Bush, Hbovor and Freeman
streets to the city line. He stated that
this petition was filed with the council
aix months ago, and no action had been
taken on it.
At this juncture ex-Mayor Hazard
turned up in the meeting with a roll of
legal documents and urged the passage
of a franchise for H. F. Storra, from
Main and Eighth to Flower, Tenth,
Pearl, Tenth, Alvarado, Seventh to the
city line. The petition for this line was
aubmitted at the laat meeting of the
council, and clashes with the proposed
franchise of tbe Main street line and its
prospective purchasers, who now have
tbe road under bond.
Mr. Brodrick—l would like to know
why you make one of your terminals at
Eighth and Main streets.
Mr. Hazard—Mr. Storrs thinks that
the Tenth-street hotel will be built in
the near future, and he wants to accom
modate the guests. We might exchange
with your mule line.
"Very likely," was Mr. Brodrick's re
sponse in a sarcastic tone.
Mr. Strohm—l think we should go over
the«e lines before deciding to advertise
for the sale of the franchise.
Mr. Innea— The matter has been held
back for six months and we ought to do
Mr. Strohm—Yon have aaid that sev
eral times, Mr. Innea; now if you were
anxioue to take the matter up, both
yonreelf and Mr. Rhodes were at perfect
liberty to do so at any time you deaired.
Mr. Brodrick—l came up here several
times and Messrs. Rhodes and Innes
told me you had this petition in your
pocket and they could do nothing.
Mr. Strohm—That's not so; the peti
tion has been in the desk here, and I
won't have any one Bay that I had it in
my pocket.
Mr. Brodrick glared at Mr. Strohm
and the latter glared back, and there waa
an awful silence. Mr. Rhodes then
stepped into tbe breach and moved that
the petition of the Main street road be
granted, and the motion was adopted,
Mr. Strohm voting in the negative.
Mr. Hazard—lf one of these fran
chises is granted it will carve the en
trails out of the other. What are you
going to do with tbe petition of Mr,
Mr. Rhodes—l propose that there
shall be no monkeying with tbeae fran
chises. If the parties who secure it do
not build they will have to iorfeit the
franchise, that's all.
The board decided to postpone action
on tbe Storr's franchise for one week.
On motion of Mr. Rhodes the street
superintendent was directed to compel
the City Water company to repair
Broadway at such points where it was
left in bad condition as a result of lay
ing water pipe on that thoroughfare,
and incidentally Mr. Rhodes remarked
that the street superintendent lacked
backbone in compelling contractora who
tear up the streets to restore them to
their original condition.
The petition of W. E. Clark to erect a
platform scale on Pearl street was de
nied by the board, and the matter of
widening First street, east of Boyle ave
nue, was laid over for one week to talk
over tbe assessment district.
Urs. Katz Will Apply for a Divorce.
Kov. Knighten'a Position.
Edward Katz, the penniloaa drummer
from Chicago, who jumped into noto
riety by his clandestine marriage to Miss
Edith Ruthard, was arraigned in Jus
tice Seaman's court yesterday upon a
charge of embezzlement. He is accused
by J. 8. Prizgint of having taken shirt
samples worth $5 and disposing of them.
His trial waa set for next Monday.
Katz came here about a' month ago
from Chicago, but does not represent a
clothing house or any other bouse.
Since hia arrival here he has been mixed
up in several unpleasant cases, in which
women figured more or less conspicu
ously. From accounts, he has gotten
himself into other scrapes which may
prove serious for him.
The father of the girl he co hastily
married will take steps at once to pro
cure a divorce. Katz claima he will
fight the procedure unless the father
pays him for his "wronged feelings."
Rev. Will Knighton, who married the
couple, stated yesterday that he had
been misrepresented in a certain ac
count published of the affair. He waa
perfectly innocent of what transpired
before the couple reaohed his house, and
an introduction and recommendation
from the deputy county clerk and an
other man was sufficient to satiafy him
that there was nothing wrong. Had
there been even an intimation of the
circumstances attendant upon the caae,
he would have hesitated before perform
ing the ceremony.

j A lively row over the ejectment of a
lodging house occupant occurred yester
day at 129 South Olive street, where Mrs.
ipizabeth Mills, the landlady, attempted
10 remove the effects of Mrs. L. E.
■ To aid in the accomplishment of her
object, Mrs. Mills secured the services
of George J. Hoffman, a laborer, and K.
Tramer. Mrs. Dabney objected, but
proved no match for the two, so she re
paired to the police station, where aho
eeoarod a warrant from Depsty District
Attorney Rush. The warrant was served
by Constable Richardson.

Seaman and the caee set for hearing next

said, resided on a government claim at
Temescal, Riverside county, while she
and her mother went to Santa Ana to

Clarence E. Dodge, whose brother re
sides at 122 Temple street, and who
formerly condncted a poultry ranch at
Compton, is reported misting. He has
not been heard from since March 27th,
and it is thought that he was murdered
for bis money.
Dodge sold out his business at Comp

and went almost immediately to £1

npon his person, the proceeds of his
ranch sale.
On March 25th Dodge wrote to Albert
Blair of this city that he would return

wrote a similar letter to a young lady in
Ohio, to whom he is engaged to be mar
ried. This was the last heard of him
except a statement from El Monte to
the effect tbat Dodge fell ia with a com

The Molt Market restaurant was doing
a rushing business yesterday noon. The
proprietor, John Bielopero, waa not in,
because he expected an addition to hia
family, way over in Boyle Heights.
Pretty soon the dishwasher dropped a
pile of dishes on the floor. The cook
expressed his dissatisfaction in terse
Slavonic words, which must have hurt
the dishwasher's feelings, because he
dumped some more plates under the
counter, put on his coat and walked out.
An old lottery ticket peddler, who was
eating calf's head, Spanish style, started
up an incessant chatter about revolu
tion or dissolution, or something that
sounded tbat way. This rattled the
waiter, and he too let some crockery
down on tbe floor with a bang. The
cook was hot and jawed around like a
hoHse afire.
Just then in walked the constable,
who edged his way in behind the coun
ter and made a concerted dash with
both hands for the money till. He was
disappointed. It could be seen in his
face. Only a few dollars rewarded his
industry, and the attachment he had in
his pocket called for over $200. Then
he gathered in the quarters of tbe few
whom the racket in the restaurant had
not yet seared away from their dinner.
The cook then took off his apron and
put on his cutaway, the waiter donned
his panama, the constable locked tbe
door, and peace supreme, compared to
which innocuous desuetude is but a pale
expression, reigned in the Mott Market

others, who subscribed liberally, and in
all $5000 was raised at the meeting,
making about $45,000 already sub

committee was very encouraging, and it
looks now as though tbe hotel will really
be built. The hotel and grounds will
comprise six acres, which the hotel
committee propose to give to any one
who will complete the hotel according
to the original plana. About $40,000
more is all that tbe subscription com
mittee will require to make tbe proposi

evening stated tbat another warrant had
been issued by Judge Otis of the supe

A new warrant was issued yesterday
and Deputy Sheriff Fourad of San Ber
nardino camo here to serve it, but he
found Finther absent.
A Herald reporter called at Pinther's
residence, at W3 South Main, at 10
o'clock last night, and found him gone.
His young son stated that his father
bad net been home since Wednesday
night, and that he did sot know where

The continned absence of Pinther
from his home leads to the surmise that
he has left the city en account of his
fear of being arrested again.
