On October 17th Street Superintend ent Watson addressed a letter to tbe Southern California Railway oompany stating tbat complaints were coming in in regard to the lack ol crossings on Ella street, Arroyo Soco avenue and X street. Yesterday the railway company filed a communication to the council stating tbat the company is willing to make their improvements where the publio use demands them, but tbat it is a hardship for the oompany to put in orossings for tbe oeefit of real estate speculators, who oesire to annoy the company by making tbe demands.

"Prof. Billy" Manning, the local pugil ist with bypnotio tendencies, who has forsaken the resorts ol the "fancy" to join the sock and baskin, was the de fendant in an action brought by his wile, Emily Ceoilia Manning, to obtain a di vorce irom bim. Tbe case was oalled in department tbree yesterday morning, but tbe dauntless "professor" failed to enter the legal arena. Mra. Manning based her application npon the ground that her husband had failed to provide her witb the necessa ries of life, on account of his idleness, profligacy and dissipation. Tbe court not being satisfied with the evidenoe given to sustain these allegations, con tinued the matter In order lo permit her producing additional proof. SOME STOLEN DIAMONDS UNEARTHED IN SAN BERNARDINO BY DETECTIVES. A Son Bob! Hit Mother of Valuable Jewel* and It Captured. The Boy Stake* a Confession. When Waits: Gay Fernald earns to Loa Angeles be came as a diamond tbiel •Boaping from San Francisoo. When J. W. Coleman left this city he had stolen jewels in bis possession valued at $3500. Coleman came to grief in ths little town of San Bernardino, and is now in jail there together with a companion. In tbe two cases tbere is a distinction with a difference—Walter Guy Fernald robbed a private pawnbroker in San Francisoo—J. W. Coleman plundered bis mother. Tbe trinkets stolen by Fernald represented so many unre deemed pledges. Those stolen by Cole man were family jewela. It came about tbis way : About two weeks sgo Mrs. A. H. Spencer of 845 South Broadway reported to the polios tbat she had been relieved of diamonds valued at upward of $2500. A descrip tion ol tbe jewels, wbich consisted of a bar pin with tbree large stones,a pair ol earrings with tbree karat atonea. a locket and minor diamond jewelry, and within 24 hours almost it waa fonnd that two men were trying to dispose of unset dia monds in San Bernardino. Word was Bent to arrest the men, and tbey were caught in tbe act of bargaining with a saloonkeeper for the purchase ol a large diamond. In a scuttle that fol lowed the jewel waa lost, and with tbe exception oi the two men and a subse quent conleseion by Coleman, wbo proved to be a son of Mrs. Spencer by a former marriage, nothing waa discov ered. Coleman's confession, however, wss a remarkable one. He stated that his mother refused to give him money, and, opportunity offering, he took her jewels. When the Los Angeles officers reached San Bernardino Mrs. Bpencer had re lented and had employed attorneys to habeas corpus her son. The other pris oner, whose name does not transpire, had been released upon confession of Coleman, wbo to k the entire blame Upon himself. Coleman accounts for all the large diamonds except two, which be cays Were disposed of by being lost. Detec tives Boequi, Goodman and Bates, "dag np" aomu of tbe smaller jewela, not enumerated in Coleman's oonfeaalon, in pawnbroker ebope in this oity.

Kidney Trouble Cared. I ono BIACH. Cal., Oct 31, 1804.—D. W' Fletcher ot this plaoe makes the following statement: "Four and one-half bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla hare cured me of a very bad case of kidney trouble." Bond* Pill* oure all liver ilia Damages Too Large. A decision was rendered by Judge Van Dyke yesterday morning npon tbe motion for a new trial in the damage suit of Gertrude Cox, by her guardian ad litem, against tbe Los Angeles Term inal Railway oompany, ordering that said motion be granted, for Ihe reasons set forth in a lengthy written opinion filed. The facts in the ease are set forth in review by Judge Van Dyke in his opin ion. Tbe plaintiff was a little girl 7or 8 years old when she, with two older sisters and another little girl, hoarded one ol tbe trains belonging to the de fendant company, lor the purpose ol traveling from Bond station to Troplco station, a distance of about a mile, at which lattor point is situated the school house at whioh these children attended. Very shortly alter entering the car the conductor came around te collect the fares. Tbere was some little difficulty between tbe oonduotor and the children as to the fair to be paid. Ha demanded Hi cents each, but the children main tained tbey had up to date only been required to pay 5 cents for tbe two elder and nothing foa the smaller one. Hav ing only 20 cents in all, the children were In a quandary how to make up the deficit of 10 cents. Tbe conductor solved tbe difficulty by stopping the train and putting them off. Upon tbe case coming to trial the jury found for the plaintiff on the special issues submitted to them, and also brought in a general verdict tor her in the sum ol 1400. The court, in the opinion jost handed down, holds tbat under the oharge and the special findings the only damages that could be awarded are compensa tory damages, for the detriment prox imately caused by the wrongful aot of putting the plaintiff off, and tbat tbe amount awarded, considering all tbe circumstances, suggests that the jury most have acted nnder some influence, consolously or unconsciously, not justi fied by the facts, and therefore a new trial is ordered.

White gave a very elaborate luncheon yesterday at her home on Main street in honor o( her friend, Mrs. Carrie JDalton, of San Diego. The deoorations, whicb were artistic and unique, were the work of Mrs. An nie Bancroft. In tbe center of the long table was a large cut glass bowl wbich held a profusion of pink carnations and maiden-hair ferns. Wound loosely about the base of tbe bowl was wide piuk satin ribbon with long loops and ends lying on the table, the ends long enongn to reaoh obliquely to either side where, after being tied into more loops, were again brought together at the end with a third knot of loops and ends; down through the oenter of the diamond formed by the ribbon were pinks and ferns. Ihe other end of tbe table had simply one very large cluster ol loops and ends in front of tbe hostess' place, with tbe carnations and ferns reaching down to meet in from the center mass. A pink candelabrum was near one end of the table, and a white one on tbe other, both with pink shades, and out glass dishes holding confections dotted about made a whole that was extremely lovely. Fruit was banked on tbe man tel, and tbe chandelier was gracefully twined with smilax. At each place was a cluster oi the carnations bound to together with ribbon, on wbioh, in gold lettering, was tba name of tbe guest on one end and tbat of the hostess on the other. Those present besides tbe host ess were: Mmes. Carrie Dalton of San Diego, Charles Monroe, Scballert, Ozro W. Childs, E. A. Frsuas, George J. Denis, Cameron Thorn, Phillips, Koepfli, Modini Wood, Hirschfeld; Misses Ruth Childs and Pickering. MUSICAL AND SOCIAL. The musical and social that was given last evening at Miss Marsh's school, 1340 Sonth Hope etreet, was very enjoy able and was well attended. Theyoung ladies in their dainty gowns, the deco rations of peppers and chrysanthemums, tbe excellent musical programme tbat was exceptionally well rendered, and the refreshments that were served after ward, all went toward the success of the whole. Mr. Plutti opened tho programme with Schumann's Aufschroung, wb'cb he played with bis uaual clean-cnt exe cution; Mrs. Kempton and Mr. Martin sang that charming duet, Love's Dream Is O'er, with much expression, and Miss Aver played Bendei's Mondacbein fabrt with intelligence and grace. In the waltz song irom Gounod's Romeo and Juliette Miss Kempton's voice was heard at its best, and in response to a hearty encore she sang Meyer-Hel mund's Lilac Tree charmingly. Miss Estelle Bean followed witb two plane numbers—a Romania by Schu mann and a Barcarolle by Rubinstein— in both of which she showed good train ing and considerable talent. Mr. Martin's sympathetic and de lightful voice was so thoroughly enjoyed in his rendition ol Lohr's Marguerite that an encore was demanded, and he sang Lynes' Sweetheart, whicb is par ticularly well adapted to his voice and he always sings with much musical taste and knowledge. A brilliant tran scription of Verdi's Rigoletto by Liszt was executed cleverly by Miss Aver, and tbe regular programme was closed with Griawold's "What the Chimney Sang," wbioh Mrs. Kempton saug with much dramatic power and for an encore tbe drinking song from Lucrezia Borgia, which she always sings con emore. Chevalier de Kontski, wbo was in the andience, yielded graoiously to a request by the young ladies that he should play, and tbat beautiful andante from Beeth oven's sonata in B major was read with masterly dignity, force and delicacy; the enthusiastic appreciation called out an encore and a brilliant concert waltz ol his own composing showed the versa tility and complete command the obev alier bas over tbe keyboard, despite his seventy odd years.

THE UNEMPLOYED. THE PROBLEM DISCUSSED BY THE SINGLE TAXBRS. The Proposed Orgsmlaatlea or the M. M. P. A.—Ralph Hoyt Claims That Lead and Labor Ara Kept Apart. The single tax meeting last night in Blapobard-Fitzgerald ball, the new quarters of tbe club, was attended by a large audience and the exercises were of the liveliest and moat interesting character. Instrumental music ol a high order waa furnished by Cbarlss F. Walters and N. B. Quzman, also by Prof. Singleton, the antobarp player. Music was followed by the reading of a paper proposing tbe organization of tbe "M. P. A.", written by Mr. W. 8. Oreigbton, but read by President Ralph E. Uoyt, owing to Mr. Oreighton being too ill to be present. The document was a fine satire on certain things wbich the writer bad in mind, and contained many splendid hits wbicb the large audience highly appreciated and loudly applaud ed. Tbe production will doubtless ap pear in print at an early day. Of the unemployed and what should be done to abolish icvoluntary poverty was opened lor discussion and kept up vigorously. Ralph E. Hoy t opened tbe disenaiion. Among other things be said -. "This problem of .how to deal with the unemployed element in society is a serious one, and is becoming more seri ous as the opportunities for earning an honest living grow smaller by degrees and beautifully less. So lar as rslatea to men who are tramps or vagabonds from choice; those who need work but refoae it ao long aa they oan eke out a miasrable existence by begging, the only way to deal with mem is to compel them to work or leave the country. But with those who need employment, are seeking ior it, and cannot find il, the case is quite different. Aa yet I have heard ol but one plan for their re lief that is anything more than a mere makeshift—a temporary resort which, while it might render a few human be ings less miserable for a short time, would soon collapse, leaving tbe cause of involuntary poverty untouched and the taxpayers with leas money in their pokets. Whenever we are confronted by human beings Buttering from lack of food or sbelter it is our duty to relieve tbem il pi ssible, and we generously do so wilhoutstopping to inquire into tbe cause ol the distressed condition. But tonight let ns see if we can not ascer tain why there are millions ol people seeking vainly for employment in a land sufficiently productive to enstain the entire population ol the world. Tha cause ie not to be found in our competi tive eystem, in financial jugglery, in contraction of the currency, in high rates of transportation, or even in tariff laws. Whatever evila may be wrapped np in any or all of these things, they are not the underlying cause of preaent con ditions. The foundation cause lies in the fact that land and labor, the only factors oi production, are kept apart by unjust laws. Everything we eat, drink, wsar or otherwise utilize and en joy ia tbe reault of labor applied direct* iy or indirectly to land. It ia impossi ble for labor to exert itself withonl the use of land. Therefore, to whatever ex tent labor ia shut from accaae to tbe passive factor in production, to that ex tent labor is cramped, oppressed and enslaved. Tbe one word landlordism ia tbe real key to industrial depression and the existence of awarming armiee of unemployed aesking for jobs whioh they fail to find. It waa the apprecia tion of tbia faot that induced Mayor Plngree, of Detroit, Republican, though be is, to device a plan by which large percentagea of tbe idle land and idle labor in that oity ware successfully brought together. No matter wbat may be aaid or done toward affording immediate relief for the unemployed who honestly aeek for work, or for tbe punishment of impos tors, this problem of giving employment to labor can never be aettled till it is settled right; and it will never be set tled right till it is settled on the lines of juatice and natural lawa. Every other ao called remedy is oniy a piece of temporary patchwork. Nature's great storehouse furnishes all the raw material required for wealth production. Give labor easy aoceee to that raw material and there need be no idle men, unless idle from choice; while Idle land that ie valuable would soon show signs of improvement. The single tax offers tbe only real solu tion of tbis most serious problem." The discussion was continued by M. V. York, J. O. Blakely, Mr. Van Slyck and others on the part ol the Populists, and by 0. A. Miller, M. W. Conkling, Ira B. Wood and Samuel Levi representing the single taxers. The latter speakara earnestly contended that none of the palliatives proposed by tbe others would avail anything of consequence so long as tbe source of production continued to be monopolized by private parties. Each speaker on either aide was en* thusiastically applauded, the audience being divided in sentiment. Altogether it was one of tbe most spirited diecus siona ever known at a aingle tax meet ing in tbia city. The choir announced an addreaa naxt Monday night by Hon. Lawrence Dun ham, of Hew York city, on Labor and Capital, to be followed by discussion and queationa. Who Haa Any U. 8. Warrant!.

Bead What General John A. Halderman, Ex-United States linistr to Siam, Writes Abont Paine's Celery Gomponnd. New York City, September 24, 1894. I am Rlad to recommend Paine's celery compound to all who (eel the need of a prompt and efficacious remedy for nsr Tons diiorderi, including tbe debility that foliowa prolonged work under high pressure. My experieaoe justifies me in lay ing this. When, in consequence of tbe demands made npon my strength by official and personal business, my nerves were so weakened that I could not sleep, I took Paine's celery oompound according to directions, and the results were more than satisfactory. I was enabled to sleep all night, and instead of awaking tired and feeble, I found myself refreshed and invig orated. I have discusaed the merits of Paine'a celery compound with aome of my frienda, and I am informed that tbey bave been cured by it of indigeation, rbeumatiam and kidney trouble. I know of no medicine ao thoroughly entitled to the confidenc of debilitated people, and I am not surprised to learn tbat tbe compound is a household remedy in every part of oar county Very truly yours.
