Social Events and Motes. Pasadena, Deo. 14.—The second an nuel Throop day, the first einoe tbe death of A. G. Throop, founder of Throop Polytechnic Institute, was com memorated today, exerciaea being held in Eaat hall ol tbe inatitute from 10 a. in. to 12. The hall was well tilled with students and vlaitora, and the pro gramme, as published in this morning's Herald, waa carried out in full. The large assembly room had been tastefully decorated by a oorpß of atudenta under direction ol Miaa Allis, and looked very pretty. The large oil painting ol Father Throop, whioh hangs against the east wall, was aurrounded by pepper and holly, while chrysanthemums were interwoven with the green to good effect. Tbe stenography department contrib uted a floral pillow, composed of white and yellow rosea (Throop oolora) witb with'tbe shorthand characters, Father Throop, interwoven in violets. Professor Kayai opened the day by introducing Mr. P. M. Greco, chairman ol the board oi truateea, who acted aa president of the meeting. Rev. E. S. Conger invoked the Divine blessing, •Iter which Mr. Green delivered tbe opening address, in whiob be reviewed the history ol Throop Polytechnic aince it was founded. Throop day, whiob waa generally celebrated by tbe oitiaena oi Paaadena, last year, has been made one ol the permanently observed days of tbe institution whicb bean his name. It will be devoted mainly to the preservation of the memories of tbe great and good old mau who gave his all in founding it. Mr. Green briefly reviewed tbe life of Father Throop since coming to Pasadena, and referred to hia airong temperance principlea. Rev. Clark Crawford was the next speaker, taking np especially the patri otism of the man and hia love of the •tars and stripes. Mrs. L. C. Conger, a member of the board ol trustees, spoke on bia regard lor women, and bow he always gave bia wile credit for much of the success whioh be had attained in life. He be lieved in tbe ability ol woman to be ol nee, not only in the/!home, bnt in the church and ichool aa wall. President C. H. Keyes waa the next speaker, bis address, wbich moat inter sating, being confined to a short sketch of the life of Mr. Throop—how he wee brought np on a larm in Western New York with no chance for an education, went west into Michigan and after yeara ol toil accumulated a fortune out oi tim ber, only to lose it all In tbe great Chi cago fire. Going to work again, be re gained bia money, being elected in tbe meantime treaaurer of tbe city of Chi cago, wbich office he held for many years. Finally he came to Calilornia, and here accomplished what bad been hia life long desire — the founding of a ■ohool for young men and women. Mr. Frank Palley, secretary of the in stitute, who knew Mr. Throop before be came to Calilornia, (poke very feelingly of his love for hia acbool and the trials be underwent in • financial way wbile establishing the institute. Short addreaaes were made by Miaa Allia, Profeaaor Necclktchie, Miss Camp bell. Prof. M. M. Parker, Prof. 8. Saund an, Profeaaor Gaylord, Prof. J. P. Parker and Profeaaor Hamilton of tbe faculty, all devoted to incidents of the life and work oi Father Throop. Short paper* were also given by the following ■tudents: Mies Lulu Conger, Frank Jewett, Harry Gaylord, Miaa Ada Blauchard. Mias Banbury gave a very pleasing recitation of an original poem by Miaa Sprague of tbe faculty. Miaa Jessie Goodwin rendered a vocal solo, wbich was much enjoyed. An original poem, written and read by Misa Morse of the faculty, was a feature of tbe pro gramme. Professor Keyea read an able paper written by Mr. Woodworth, a member of the board of trustees, who was un able to be present. Professor Tebbetta followed with a •hort address, and Judge Knight spoke briefly. The exercises closed with bene diction by Rev. Florence Kollock. THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC IN HOT WATER. The Times of this morning says: "It is learned that J. A. Mnlr. superintend ent of the Sonthern Pacifio company, departed today for San Francisco to confer with tbe officials at Fourth and Townsend streets, and that the reason for the hurried trip was a telegram re ceived from Mr. Huntington saving that the company conld not and would not accept the franchise in its present form, witb tbe objeotionable conditions attached. Rather than submit to what is alleged to be a scheme to cinch the company, the project of bnilding a branch line into Pasadena wili be aban doned." It is trnly a sad thing to see this com pany "cinched" In inch a manner, and donbtless oar oity wonld at once fall in* to decay should the all-powerfnl Mr. Huntington decline to "accept the fran chise In its present form." However, just to refresh the minds of readers, it might be well to osll up the terms of the agreement nnder which the Sonth ern Pacifio oompany was to be "cinched." The proposition was this; That an agreement be drawn up, signed by the railway company and property owners, agreeing to be bound by tbe declssion of a board ol arbitra tion in tbe matter of damages inflicted by the running of the road up Broad way. The board of arbitration was to be selected as follows: Two members selected by the city council Irom non residents and entirely uninterested parties, two members chosen by the Sonthern Pacldo oompany and a fifth Chosen by these four. Thie was the plan to which Mr. Huntington is quoted as saying tbat "rather than submit to what seems to be a scheme to cinch the company, the project of bnilding a branch road Into Pasadena will be abandoned." ifc The above language, if quoted cor rectly, is an insnlt to citizens ol Pasa dena and a direct slap at tbe integrity of onr oity council, which was to be one of tbe selecting parties. What could be fairer and more just tban r.fee plan of arbitration as proposed? Ann yet the oompany taya there is a dsep-iikld nlot to "oinnh" them. This horl from a corporation which has the reputation of cinching everyone ami everything in sight is as absurd at it is amusing, and and will deceive no one. Neither will its attempted bluff about not coming into the oity unless given everything it asks for paralyze any one. Paaadena has grown into one of the most pros perous and wealthy communities iv Southern California, *vith no assistance from the Southern Pacific, and will con tinue to grow and prosper whether or nut Mr. Huntington's road comes in. The iactn in this caae are too plain to need any explanation. The Southern Pacifio wants to get In, and wants to get in badly. It wants to come up Broad way to avoid the ezpenae ol buying a right ol way over private proporty. It wants to avoid all paymenta for dam ages possible. It objects to a boat of arbitration because it would bave to nay its juat duee. It wanta tbe city council to .givo it an unincumbered franchiae and let the property owners fight tbe matter out in court as best they can. It wante all this, and will probably want the whole city before it gets through. Tbe attempt oi a Los Angeles morning .paper to show tbat public sentiment fa vored turning tbe oity over to the cor poration, has been a complete failure, as shown by the petition published in tbis morning's Herald, signed by al most every prominent business, man, asking the council to compel the com pany to arbitrate before granting a fran chise. It is noticeable that while the paper publishes tbis petition, it fails to print tbe formidable list of names which are attached to it. Moreover, in addi tion to tbe long list of signatures pub lished yesterday, the following names bava been added today. Io anything more necessary ? T. Hobson, A. A. W. Bley, W. H. Wakeley, W. T.

Vallette, at his residence on East Colorado street at 3 o'clock tbis morn» Ing, will be received with surprise and sorrow by his many friends in this city. Deceased had been confined to his bed but lour days, bnt has been in poor health for some time, not such, how ever, aa to interfere with hia attending his business as usual until very recently. The immediate cause oi ths death was a slight hemorrhage of the brain, super induced by general muaoular weakness •nd a touch of heart trouble. Deceased haa been a resident of Pasadena for tbe past four years, and Is generally known, being of a genial nature and connected with pablio institutions and charities, giving much in this way. He was a gentleman of large means, having amassed a fortune in Chicago after the great fire. He was a native of Napier- Title, 111., and wai in his 45th year. Mr. Vallette was a great worker in the Univerealist church, being superin tendent of the Sunday school and a leader ia the church. He was also a member and a leading spirit in tbe Charity Organisation society. His death is a sad loss to his rife and daughters, and the sincere sympathy of many friends is extended. Mr. Thomas Martin, a brother ol Mra. Vallette, la on the road here from Chi cago, and arrangementa for the funeral will be deferred until bis arrival. At • meeting of the students of the Throop Polyteohnto institute this alter noon a committee was appointed to draft suitable resolutions of condolence to the bereaved family in behalf of the inati tute, of whioh Miss Vallate is • member. NOT EVIDENCE ENOUGH. Tbe preliminary hearing oi the two Mexicans, Oble Sylvaa and Pablo Koch a, charged with the murder of a fellow Mexican named Rolan, at the Chapman ranch, abont two weeks ago, came up before Justloe Merriam today. Judge Utley appeared for the people and Benj. Habn for the defendant*. The wit nesses examined were all Mexicans and it was impossible to get any satisfactory evidence ont of them. Eight or nine of them were brought np by the foremen of the ranch, who has been working np the case, bnt nothing conclusive eonld be brought out. At the oonolnsion of tbe evidence for tbe proseention Mr. Utley stated that he did not feel justi fied, from the evidence, In asking tbe court to hold tbe delendants, and tbey were aecordidgly dismissed. Tbe mur der for which the men were arrested was one of the most cold-blooded affairs which haa occurred iv this section for a long time. The victim was induced to go ont Into the field and his head was then meshed in by his companions with a demijohn which he carried. It is very donbtfnl now if tbe right parties are ever brought to justice. NOTES. The tournament of rotes is ooming along at a jolly rate.

The fad now among the Pomona fair sax ia to swing clubs. Indian clubs, aa deeignated by the ladies, aro very bene ficial, especially when they are as light as "we are." There are 20 or more women who have recently joined the Athletic club and diligently practice swinging the clubs two afternoona each week, and tbey are also learning bow to fouce. An instructor comes from Los Angeles, and tbe cruel thing about it all is that they won't try their hand on the boys, although they have been just "aching" to have a chance to witnesß the agility of the young lodiea. Another thing that puzzles tbe young men still more is that the girle don't wanttoshow off their handsome costumes, and the young men are under the impression tbat "girls can't 'fence,' no how."

A great deal ol talk ia now being ins dulged in regarding a bridge across the Banta Clara river, somewhere between Santa Paula and tbe Hueneme oroesins. Everybody admits the bridge ought to be bnilt, nearly every one bas an idea where it should be built, and a great many assert that It will be bnilt, bat when or where no one seems to be able to answer. The matter ought to be agi tated every day nntil a contract ia let for its building. It would be a luxury in summer and is en absolute necessity in winter. Quite a number of eastern people are coming in this v/inter looking for homes where tbe sun shines 300 days in the year, and where the cyclone and tbe blizzard are unknown.
