Private advices to tbe Herald from
tbs C.ty ot Mexico disoloae a somewhat
complicated condition of affairs in re
lation to tbe boundary dispute with
OiuaUmaia, Involving nearly every
phage of the political eituatim and
prosaging a storm that may serioaily
affect the republic's foreign policy.
Tbe newspapers, through which
ebullient factions manifest themselves,
are bitterly partisan in tbe discussion
oi the boundary question, and althoagh
the government cannot very well com
mit itself until after the arrival of the
Guatemalan envoys, there are curtain
evidences of public opiuiou tint point
to the fact that a war with the southern
republic would bo popular.
Tbe states continue to call extra ses
sions to vote their state troops to bo
turned over to the federal government
Bhould war between the two countries
be declared, it is generally believed
that a war would be exceedingly popu
, lar witb tbe supporters of General Diaz,
and tbey will spare no effort to pre
cipitate hostilities.
The presidential election is at hand
and there is no doubt tbat President
Diaz will offer bimself for re-election.
While it is undisputed that tbe Diaz in
terest is so firmly entrenched tbat it
need fear no opposition, still tbere is a
decided indisposition to revive in this
campaign the fierce contention that
came near resulting in oivil war at the
last election. During tbat period
the capital was for a day and
a night in tbe hands of a mob tbat was
suppressed by the troops ouly after con
siderable bloodshed. The importance
of this uprising was evidenced in the
effort of the government to conceal tne
facts, the official organs claiming that
only one man wbb killed when the
slaughter actually numbered ita victims
by scores. Still further to belittle the
affair the state authorities imprisoned a
number of students, mere boys, wbo
were accused of seditious uttsrances.
ignoring the actual leaders of the insur
The partisans of Diaz do not desire
the revival of these ante-election scan
dals in thia campaign, and to avoid thia
unpleasantness they favor a foreign war,
hoping that a victorious invasion of a
neighboring power will glorify Diaz, and
that tbe animosity against him will be
[so dazzled by tbs effulgence that it can
not make it' elf apparent or affect the
opinions of the people.
Diplomatic measures, however, must
be attempted before a reaaonable excuse
presents itself for drawing the sword
and for theee reasons it is deemed poli
tic to await the arrival of tbe Guatema
lan envoys.
A war would be popular. The only
drawback ac iar a 9 the government is
concerned is the lack of cash in tbe
treasury. Mexico has paid tbe interest
on hor foreign debt and suataine d her
credit abroad under most disadvanta
geous conditions, and tbat section of
tbe government represented by Mr.
Limantour, secretary of the treas
ury, would offer etienuous resist
ance to an increase of tbe
national debt under any circumstances.
This minister represents the new Mex
ico and the younger generation, and al
though hie influence is great, the power
of the old regime is sufficient for the
present to overcome him.
The Mexican government is observing
every military precaution. Tbe troops
on the frontier are being steadily in
creased, and there will be but little
doubt of tbe result when tbe Btruggle is
precipitated. It is not known in Mexico !
precisely what force Guatemala aould
oppose to the Mexican army, but it is
fairly well understood that the quality
of the fightinz material will be little
batter tban guerilla contingents and ut
terly unfit to cope witb trained bat
The Chicago Inter Ocean has been in
vestigating the beet sugar product of
Utah, as observed in the operation and
output of the !/rhi sn/ar factory. The
result of this investigetion is a lesson to
other states, Bhowing what difficulties
may be overcome in beet raising and
sugar making, and the antagonUm of
the sugar trust, that could mslce no
headway in its raids against this indus
The Lshi factory, with a capital of

The number of people employed in

110 days.
Now, if one factory, wbicb turns out

Utah faot. A partial answer ia to oe
foond in this statement:
If tbe entire amount of augar con -

But even on tho bssia of $185 5413,000,
we have an expenditure on home indus
tries and on home labor far exceeding,
very nearly doubling, that of the value
of all the wheat exported from the
United States. The exports of wheat
during iho year 1808 were oi the value
of 103,631,070. The amount epsnt in
producing American made sugar in
quantity sufficient for the supply of tbs
American market would have been near
to 518b.000.000. Is not Utah giving
valuable suggestions to formers who
are fretting under the unprofitableness
of 50-cent wheat?
A similar showing can be made at
Chino, and when the sugar trust is com
pelled to loosen its grip on this staple,
Anaheim will put in operation an en
terprise of equal importance and com
mercial value.
The senate committee on oominerce
will ask tbe senate to reauthorize an in

harbors, aB directed at tbe last session
of congress. Tbe request will undoubt
edly be granted and the committse will
begin its investigation of the respective
merits of the two harbors next March,
immediately after tbe adjournment of
congress. Every preparation abould be
made by the citizens of Lob Angeles and
Sonthern California to receive this dele
gation, and every facility should he pro
vided for a full and complete presenta
tion of the superiorities of the har
bor of San Pedro. We have a wily
foe to deal with, and'it may be taken
for granted that tbe committee will be
well supplied with Southern Pacific data
long before they reach tbia coast. We
must be prepared with sufficient evi
dence in rebuttal, and it must be of
substantial character, minute in every

Speaking of charity and charity en
thusiasm at this season, permit us to
offer Chicago—big, bustling, hustling,
nickel-chasing Chicago—in evidence. In
that oity, we are told, co universal haa
the benevolent temper become that it is
growing to be bad form to indulge in any
elaborate social eoheme, public or semi
private, which does not chime with the
demand of tbe hour— that funds eball
be found in pleasant ways to fill tbe
gaping treasuries of many necessary and
admirable public institutions. And not
one word of protest, nor a murmur of
dieapproval, nor even a critical comment
or a doubtful shake of the head. There
is peace in Chicago at this season, and
good will to men. Even tbe Levitea pass
by on the hither aide to assist the good
Samaritan aa he lifta the poor devil who
haa fallen among thieves. For, sad to
relate, there are many thievea aa well ac
Samaritans in Chioago.
W. A. Cheney of thie city bas noti
tied tbe trustees of Ban .Bernardino, on
behalf oi tbe Electric Light oompany,
that suit will be begun to recover
(415.76, the amount of the September
bill for lighting the city. The trustees
refused to pay tbe full amount of the
bill because, as tbey claimed, tbe ser
vice waß inferior. An offer to com
promise for 75 por cont of the original
bill was refused by tho company. Thia
should be a lesson to the citizsns of San
Bernardino, teaching tbem that the
soonor tbey supply themselves with
light, the better it will be for the com
munity. A municipal lighting plant
will pay for itßelf in five years, and give
better service tban a hirod outfit. There
is no ecouomy or satisfaction in fatten
ing corporations of this character, who
not only refuse to fulfill their contracta
but drag tbeir victims into expensive
litigation on the slightest protest.
It looks now bb if young Campbell-
Campbell of Los Ansole?, by the way
has got tbe state university where tbe
hair ia short. The gentle savages of
that institution shaved one eide of the
Campbell "think tank," and Campbell
complemented the joke by shaving tbe
other aide, after which he "had hia
picture taken" and inscribed : "This is
the result of the highest education at
tainable in ibe curriculum of California's
boasted institution of learning." Tbe
"heft" oi the ridicule appears to be on
the academic aborigines.
Zue cartoon in yesterday's Times was
very like a plagiarism of the Examiner's

Colonel Otis should have exercised
more cleverness in concealing the stolen
goods. __________

If for no other reason, it is desirable
that the amendments proposed to the

it is provided therein that tha municipal

Los Angeles Theater.—Everybody laughed
at The New Hoy last night. The play is one of
those farces Which at places are aimed to rise
to a certain dramatic dignity; while tlicy are
simply farces tbey arc jolly nnd till the object
of their existence, but when the more ambi
tious scenes occur they are found to be want
ing. The New Boy also labors under the dis
advantage of being full of reminlscenses of
Little Puck, even to the little man who plays
the boy,—Mr, Bert Coote-for tbe farce is in
some of the business a duplication of Mr.
Daniels' famoua piece, in which Mr. 4'oote
alien hero before, played. It is, however, ex
cellently constructed, and if pruned cf its ex
cessive wordiness would be even more enjoy
able than il is now.
MA Coote is one of tbe best comedians of the
day in this class of farces, and fully compre
hends nnd utilize! the resources of his pa t
and is well supported.
The two most striking bits of work, bow
ever, are not the most prominent. One is the
Nancy Roach of Grace George, who plnys most
charmingly, and the Bullock Major of Charles
Stoddard, whioh is a truly excellent bit of
character work.
The fun is sometimes rather furious, but it
Is real fun, and the lines arc, as a rule, spark
ling and often epigrammatic, the acting ia ex
cellent, and the whole a clean, happy means
of entertainment.
Unity Chcrch.— A laige audience assembled
at l"ni y church last evening, and were highly
entertained for an hour and a half by an illus
trated lecture on art given by Mrs. William E.
Rothe-y. The platform had been so lighted
and arranged with drapery as to afford an
auistie setting for the paintings about which
she was to discourse. The lecturer herself
presented a finer picture than any slie de
scribed. She spoke oi the art of criticism,
evincing a thorough familiurity with the vari
ous schools, and paid a fine compliment to the
art school in this city.
A large number of paintings wero then
placed upon the easel in rapid succession,
while the lectuter commented with taste and
discrimination upon the peculiar chrraclerls
ticsifeach. All the paintings were the pro
duction of Col. Albert Jenks, an artist to whom
such distinguished men as Abraham Lincoln,
tieneral Grant, General Sherman, General
Miles, and many state governors and other
officials sat. The portraits of prominent citi
zens of California and Los Angeiea wore also
shown. The likenesses frequently evoked ap
plause before the lecturer mentioned their
names. At the end of Ihe lecture Colonel
Jenks was vociferously called for, but he was
too modest or diffident to appear.
Los Angeles Theater.—The advance sale of
seats for the American Extravaganza company
engagement as the Los Angeles theater opened
yesterday morning, and when the box office
closed last night the receipts were about
S2OOJ. The Aladdin company is on its way to
this city. It left Denver at 3 o'clock Thursday
morning on a special train of nine cars, and
will make no stops until it reaches Los An
geles. James Pcnnyfather, the electrician of
the company, arrived here yeste day morning,
and is at work arranging for the 25 electric
calcium lights which are used to light the
stage. To secure the required current, the
wires of the electric street railway will have
to be tapped.
The Denver Republican, in reviewing tho
engagement of Aladdin Jr. in that city, says
io ita last Sunday editim. :
Aladdin Ir. deserves its great auccess, Be
yond doubt it is the most lavish production
of its class that bas ever been taken across ihe
continent, and during these times of financial
uncertainty any management that carries a
company using "some nine railroad cars for its
transportation de crv.s the patronage of peo
ple who go to theaters.
The lecond monthly recital of Mrs. Kemp
ton'a pupils took place yesterday afternoon at
her residence, No. 1002 South Olivo atreet.
The programme was interesting and good,
end although a few were kept away by the
rain, those who wtre present rendered their
numbers in a manner tbat reflected only credit
to tliemsclycs and the method by which they
are taught. Mrs. Albert C. Jones and her sis
ter, Mrs. Haralson, both have voices of excep
tional timbre and rang'), and each sang her
number so well yesterday that an encore was
demanded. Miss Ivy Gardner's rendition of
The Flower Song, from Faust, was brilliant
and dramatic, and her rich, sweet voire was
admirably handled. Following is the pro
gramme, as it was rendered:
Duet, Greeting, Mendelssohn—Mmes. Camp
bell and Kcmpton.
Winter lullaby. Dr. Kovecr—Miss Hctrick.
My Mother Bids Me liraid My Hair, Hayden—
Miss Lulu Williams.
The Flower Song From Faust, Gounod—Miss
Ivy Gardner.
Valterla Tenu. Verdi- Mrs. Orr Haralson.
Waiting, Millard—Mrs. A. C.Jones.
Heart's spring Time, Yon Wickede—Miss J.
Sins, Smile, slumber. Gounod, violin obit
gato—Miss belphincTodd.
The concert that was given last evening at
Rartlett's music hall under the auspices of the
Y. W. C. A., was fairly well attended, and tbe
various numbers on the programme received
appreciative attention arid Applause. Miss
Kale Kider played Liszt's transcription of
Verdi's Kigoletio, and a Joseffy waltz with
considerable brilliancy; Mr. tVllUama sang the
Toreador Song from ('armcrri, and Come to My
Heart, by Jordan; in the latter song bis voice
was beard to good advantage. Miss A. 1..
Murphy read Charles Kiugsley's Lorraine, Sam
uel Lover's Low Back Car, James Whitcomb
Riley's That Old Sweetheart of Mine, and the
Sleeping Car, by W. I). Howells. Miss Murphy
reads admirably, witb almost none of tbe af
fectation that most elocutionists aie alllicted
with, and in the farce by Howella, she was at
her best; her voice is agreeable and carefully
modulated, and the personalities of the various
characters she was presenting, were clearly
Mr. J. Bond Francisco's first number, a con

tremely difficult, and was bandied with tho
deftness and dclicncy that is characteristic of
li is playing. In the -Musin licrceuse bis legato
notes were dainty and his tone pure and Very
sweet; for the encore that was demanded, he
played a brillimt waltz, also by Musin. with
much ease ami finish. Mrs. Aucr was unabio
to appear, ami her places on the programme
were liiied by Miss Murphy and Mr. Francisco.

Albtrt Roland, a Mexican, wai fonnd
murdered on tbe Chapman ranoh, near
Lamanda Park, at 7 o'clock yesterday
morning. He had been atabbed in tbe
aide, in the neck and in the bead.
At the coroner'a inquest laat night It
developed that npon tbe evening before
Roland, who was about 3J years old,
and Paola Roach went to Santa Anita,
where tbey engaged In a game ol cards
for money. The twain wound np by
pnrchaaing aome wins and going on a
big apree in an attempt to get rid of the
Roach tsstißsd that he waa with tbe
man at Held win* store at 8:30 p. in.,
where they gambled and drank, Fran
cisco Carillo and a man named Garcia
were with him. The orowd, except
Koaco, soon left, going toCarillo's honse.
Later they went to the Chapman
ranch, and thereafter, nntil his body
was picked np, he was not seen. It is
quite likely tbat the crowd quarreled
und one of them stabbed their comrade.
Sheriff Cline cud Duputy Cochrane
went to the scene yesterday afternoon,
and their investigation led lo the arrest
of Roach as having some complicity in
the murder. Later in the day Roach
waa allowed to go free, aa the coroner's
jury returned a verdict of murder by un
known pezfons, tnd blamed no one. It
is quite evident that an arrest will be
made soon.
The murder waa devoid of a more
sensational aspect than is centered in the
bare lacts of an every day killing. The
men had gambled, drank and quarreled
together, and juat auch a Mexican brawl
was indulged in aa would likely be the
origin of murder.
