Memorial services to ths late Father
Tbroop were held at the Throop Poly
technic institute Thursday morning,
December 14th.
Besides tbe faculty and members of
tbe school there were a large number of
friends, the board oi trustees and several
cf the city clergymen present.
President Keyes opened the meeting
and then introduced Hon. P. N. Green,
president of the board of trustees, who
took charge of the exercises of the morn
ing. Then oamesinging of America, fol
lowed by prayer by Rev. Dr. Conger.
Mr. Green's opening remarks were
given in the following well chosen words:
The reports of which as wsll aa other
■pescbss, which are given herewith,
were prepared by members of tbe steno
graphic department of Tbroop Polytech
nic inatitute.
One year ago tbe 21st day of the
present month, at a public meeting and
in the presence of a vast audience, tbe
late Hon. A. G. Throop, tbe fonnder of
Tbroop Polytechnic institute, formally
presented these gronnda and buildinga
where wa are now assembled to the
people oi Pasadeaa, aa a token of hia
appreciation of this lovely city where he
had made his home, bis regard for ita
genial and kind-hearted people, and ac
• proof of bis devotion to tbe cause of
practical education, which it was hiß
ambition to promote.
-Father" Throop
This waa responded to the aania even
ins by tbe people of Pasadena by a ban
quet in honor of the generous donor at
the Motel Green, whioh was attended
by most of the leading citzins of the
place, including the governor of the
state.
It haa beon decided by the trustees
and faculty of the Throop Polytechnic
institute to perpetuato the recollection
of that most important event in the
bietory of Pasadena, and forever keep
green the memory of its lamented
founder py formally establishing a
Throop day. to be annually observed by
appropriate servicss and ceremonies.
Naturally, addresses and remarks on
snch occasions will partake cf tbe na
ture of personal reminiscencee of ths
great and good man who devoted the
last years of bis life and the earn
ings and savings of a liletimo to
its establishment. I apply the terms
great and good to Father Throop (by
which endearing term all whose privi
lege it was to know him were delighted
to call him) without hesitation, for with
all the elements that go to make up a
plain, simple, earnest, unselfish, race
serving manhood, be watt most richly
endowed. Those accustomed to loik for
the great of eartb among tho successful
heroes of "tbe pomp and circumstance
of glorious war," the tinsel and trap-,
pings of royalty, or tho oosition of rank
or authority, would not regard a man of
tbe stainn of Father Throop as being
great. Yet il a life of nnseilinh devo
tion to his ffllbw ram—if "sowing that
i then m : ght reap"—if arduous toil, and
if the practice of an economy so rigid as
so deny himself the luxuries of life,
which bis ample means could at nil
times command, that the fruito of his
toil, his savings, his eeif de
nials, his eacritices, should bo
showered upon others —if theso do not
constitute true goodness of character,
then the standard by which the great
and good of all ages have been measured
is a failure, and the example of (ho
Divine Master himself, who, when upon
earth, went about doing good to others,
iB not worthy of imitation.
When the founding of this institute
was the crowning work of his
life, yet during all the years tbat
he was ... resident among us hero,
there is not an tnterpriso that h.id for
its object the good of the community,
commercially or morally, that did not
rcceivo hia active support, Thus wesaw
him take upon himself, at tho invitation
of the public, the unpaid labors of city
trustee, during the early and formative
period oi tbe city's history, and the
directorate of the board of trade. In
this first position ho contribntod much
in formulating I'asadeua'c auti-saloon
legislation, and by hio influence and ex»
ample nideti greatly in crystalizing pub
lic sentiment into active support o! tbat
legislation; and to this point in his
character i desire to direct the particu
lar attention of tho young men ol the
Polytechnic institute hero present.
Father Throop was a total abstainer
from intoxicating liquorß of all kinds, bb
well as tobacco. This fact once gave me
• glimpse of his great and simple char
acter, which greatly impressed me at the
time, and which 1 shall never forget,
Wt were present, as invited guestß, at
the opening of the pavilion is Rubio
csfun 1 sat at the table with' Father
Tbroop, when retreshmonts were served,
accompanied by wines ol vaiioun sorts,
All of these latter were politely declined
by him, he confining himself to the use
of water instead. Turning to me, who
was observing his conduct with much
interest, he remarked in bis plain and
simple way : "You may think it strange
that I do not partake of these on an
occasion like this, for as n matter ol
fact n men with the infirmities of my
advanced age upon him, near lour score
years, might well be excused for par
taking o! such gentle stimulants; but
however beneficial their uso might be to
me, I would not partake of thorn before
tbe company here assembled, for there
are young men here, who, seeing ma
partake of these wines, might be influ
enced by my example to do likewise to
their detriment; therefore I absln v al
together." Grand and glorious old
man! In his simple, unpretentious way
he had given ntterance to a sublime
principle which governs all good men in
their intercourse with their fellow men,
and which first found utterance in tbe
language of tbe great apostle when he
declared: "If meat make my brother
to offend then will I eat no meat while
the world stands." One other instance
showing his intereat in and for young
men and I close. When it was proposed
tbat the citizens of Pasadena should
honor him by a complimentary banquet
at the Hotel Green a year ago, he was
very much concerned for fear tbat wines
would be served, aa is usual in Califor
nia on snch occasions. Supposing tbat
I would have something to do with it
be called on me at my office, and after
expressing his gratitude for the pro
posed compliment, and of our people's
appreciation of his efforts to establish
this school, he expressed the earnest
wish that no wines or intoxi
cating liquors might be served
at the proposed banqust and declared
tbat be would rather forego tbe banquet
altogether than that they should be
made a feature of the banquet. In con
cluding tbe interview bis precise lan
guage was this: "I connot aflord to set
such an example before the boys of my
school as to be tbe recipient of a banquet
in my honor where wine is served," a
sentiment worthy to be written in let
ters of living light upon tbe very firma
ment itself as a reminder of the duty we
owe to those about us who may be in
fluenced by our example.
I conclude this briel testimonial to
the life and character of tbe lamented
founder of this institute with tbe words
which England's greatest bard puts
into tbe mouth of Hamlet in his tribute
to his deceased father: "He was a man,
take him for all and all; I shall not
look upon his like again."
Key. Clark Crawford addressed the
audience as follows:
Mr. Chairman : 1 am glad to bring a
tribute of love and respect to this noble
man. I remember the Bret time 1 met
bim was in tbe G. A. It. hall where a
meeting of tbe Grand Army men was
being held, just after my arrival in Pas
adena. Someone standing near me in
troduced me to Father Thioop and said,
"This ie one of our best loved citizens."
A most delightful little interview fol
lowed, in which Father Throop uttered
some ot those sentiments of patriotism
of which we all knew him to be so
largely possessed. I was inspired by
tbe patriotism of tbe man, and my
heart was slirred as he went on to de
scribe bow in those stirring days of bat*
tie he had given his eon for the wellfare
of bis country ; and then looking at tbe
grand old flag he said : "Do you wonder
tbat I love tbat tiag, its stars and
stripes?". The next time I met Father
Throop was on the corner of Colorado
street and Marengo. The subject on
'.hat occasion was education. We all
know tbat his heart, his very life was
wrapped up, especially in the last days
he spent on earth, in Throop Polytech
nic. After Bpeakidg of the necessity of
manual training, training of the eye and
band, as well as of the brain, he said:
"Back of all this there must be moral
education, for without tbat we
only increase tbe possibilities in
tbe minds of young men and young
women for evil." We know, as the
president of tbe boaid of trustees has so
admirably and beautifully expressed, he
was a noble man. He desired the edu
cation of the rising generation, but be !
was also a lover of God, a good man.
And when thinking of him this morning
I thought of the words of Antony, when
speaking cf Brutus : "He was the noblest I
Roman oi them nil.'' and then a little
farther on. "Nature might stand ui> and
say to all the world, 'this was a man.' " |
Father Throop reminds ua of the
greatness of manhood itself, as distin
guished from all learning and culture
and literary attainments. liia was tbe
simple beauty of manliness itself. He
and such men as he are worth more to
this world than all tbe learned, I loved
him. I did not know bim as weil as
many of you, and yet I learned to love
bim, and it was always an inspiration to
meet bim and grasp bis hand. He was
always uttering some grand truth, some
noble sentiment. And when his death
was announced, a sense of personal loss
came over me. Today we rejoice in bis
noble iife, and what he has done to
make this world better, and to make it
possible for large numbers of young
ladies and young gentlemen to train
themselves for noble manhood and
womanhood.
Mr. jreen then called on Mrs. L, T.
W. Conger, who responded in these
especially pleaeing remarks:
"President and friends: I feel that a
memorial today to Father Tbroop would
be incomplete if someone could not say
n word in reference to his appreciation
of woman. How often I have beard
bim speak of his success in life aud
never without referring to his wife, al
ways speaking of her as the woman who
had helped bim in those successes
materially.
"In the home he was always just and
true to hie wife and daughter, and ia
his later years, as hie daughter grew
older, he was vry proud of ber and
often cousnlteu bur judgment in matters
of importance. Many times, in speak
ing of this school I have h9ard him say :
'1 am not quite decidod about this mat
ter, lam going to write to Mattie. and
get her opinion.' Not only in tbe homo
did be appreciate woman, but in tbe
church, in tho pulpit, women on the
board of trustees, on tbe exeautive
board. Not only woman to make hie
roffee and cook his meat, but in
woman's power, morally, financially and
socially.
"And when he was working out
his idea of this school I was
amused one morning when be came into
our boUBe, and as soon as he took Ins
seat, said, "While ray horse is boing shod
1 thought I would come and talk over
the Echool mattere ; tbay are not hurry
ing it ac I should like to have them, and
I want you to help me hurry it along."
"Well," I aaid, "I don't know of any
thing f can do." "Yes, you can," ho
said. "Now. when those boys and girls
come to us we must take care of thera.
if their parents entrust tbetn to our
care we are responsible for them in tbe
school and outside tho school." He
never forgot his moral responsibility to
the world, especially- to tho children.
Father Throop wis old in years, bat be
was young in thought, and he was n.
woman's friend in tho broadest and
truest eonee ot the word.
Rev. Dr. Conner then added hie
tribiteto the memory ol this noble
man. Emerson eaya, "Welcome to go-is
and man is tbe self-helping man," and
we are today reminded that the man
who helps himself is the best man to
help othoro.
And who was more welcome among
men than the self-made man? Is there
a mora welcome name on all lipe today
than that oi Father Throop? Yet
Father Throop waa a self-made uiau.
He began empty handed, a poor and
friendless lad, yot by rigid economy, un-
Bagging industry and a wise use of all
be gained, be made the money that
enabled him to help others all his life,
and crowned hiß long career by giving
*,0S ANGELES TTER-ALDf SUNDAY MORNING: DECEMBER 16J 189t,
to us end all who come after oi this
magnificent institution.
Bereft of home at en early age. with a
rough,companionship of pioneer lumber
men,and afterwards tbe temptations of
a great growiog frontier oity, be devel
oped an integrity and sterling moral
manhood tbat was welcome to God, and
honored of man. The temptations of
otlice, or tbe greed of gain, oould not
sway him to right or left from tha path
of integrity, Kntrnstsd with the mil
lion of Chicago's treasury, be hsld it
sacred aa his life. Against great odds
and with few opportunities he became a
reverently religious man, and built the
church beside the school house as his
witness that learning and religion should
go together.
How this sslf-made man outstripped
tbe multitude. What heights he
reached. Ho is welcome of God aud
man. His name is bellowed in all
hearts, and a household word in all
homes. But we shall never know how
difficult the path he climbed, that self
made path. He hewed his way. But
he said: "I will make it easier for
others." Hence these walls, this mag
nificent equipment, this strong corps of
devoted Instructors, and this throng of
sager students. All this we owe to this
self-made man. This is bis coronation.
Napoleon studied how to destroy others'
diadems, and of their jewels weave a
crown for himself. Father Throop sought
to add jewels to the crowns of others
and thus did he weave a brighter dia
dem for himself.
Mayor Lukens made a brief address,
laying:
How ths heartbeat quiokens in all
Pasadenians when the name of Father
Throop ia mentioned. How vividly his
noble and generous lace appears before
us, and how our hearts yearn to have
him with ns again, but oar second
thought says no. We must not be so
selfish. He lived bis allotted time and
all his years of grace. How well be
lived and bow sweetly he passed away.
While the school is a grand monument
to bis memory, hie whole life was one
of anxiety to do good. Devoted to his
family, his God, and all mankind, with
malice toward none.
"I often wonder if all the young men
and women in this sobool appreciate
this grand opportunity to receive a
practical education. 1 trueteo, and tbat
you will be diligent and improve overy
moment, not only in your book and mo
cbanioal studies, but to possess and
practice those generous and sympathetic
qualifications of our lamented Father
Tbroop."
The exercises wers thsn givsn into the
charge of the faculty and students.
President Keyes' address was of the na
ture of a brief sketch of the life of the
generous founder of this institution.
He spoke as he learned it from the
lipa of Father Tbroop himself. He spoke
of the hardships endured, the tempta
tions battled against, and of tbe wonder
ful snccess of this man who rose to tbe
place he did. simply through his owu
integrity and worth.
Mr. Polley told ia an interesting man
ner of Father Throop's great upright
ness in business and in ail tbe relations
of life, bis child.like trim in God.
Professor S mnders in a few earnest
remarks spoke of the unsolfishneas as
characteristic of this noble man.
Miss Altis read a paper containing the
remarks by the pupils, ot what seemed
to them Father Throop's characteristics.
Mr. Willisrne, Mr. Jewelt. Mr. Marry

A STRIKE REMINISCENCE.
11. I'.tter.on ou Ola Srcnml Trial for
Shunting At an Hogrjaear.
Henry Patterson, who has already
been tried once on the charge of an
assault with intent to kill the engineer
of a train on the Southern Pacific road,
about three miles outside tbe city, was
again put on trial yesterday, in depart
ment one before Judge Smith.
When Patterson was first brought to
trial tbe evidence waa straightforward
and of an uncontradicted character, hut
the jury hung, ten being for conviction
and two for acquittal.
Tbe feeling excited by tho railroad
strike has entirely subsided now and the
present trial is almost certain to result
definitely one way or the other. True, j
the members «of the A. R. U. are not a ,
few, and sympathizers with the objects j
of that organization many more, but
still the crime committed ie being no
clearly brought home to the defendant
that bis chances of hanging an unpreju
diced jury are email.
Deputy District Attorneys M. W. j
Conklin and I.c Compte Davie represent
the prosecution, while J. C. Martin,
esq., and Messrs, R. A. Ling and H. A.
Anpel are guarding the interests of tbe
defendant.
The entire morning was consumed in
obtaining 11 jurors, and upon the recon
vening of court in the afternoon the
sheriff made return of a epecial venire
from which the odd jurymen was quick
ly seltcted. The foi o sing are the jury
men selected to try the case: E. K.

Dougherty, A, H. Edwards, C. Heath,
A. K. Meige, A. Poleon, E. M. Sbipman,

The evidence adduced during the
afternoon woe almost completely a re
capitulation of what lias already been
published regarding the perpetration of
-.he crime. 1
The further hearing oi the will be
continued tomorrow it 10 o'clock.

THE MAYOR'S LITTLE VETO.
The Bond Election Will Have
to Be Postponed.
His Honor Bolted on the School
House appropriation.
Superintendent Saareh Ooot.il to ths
■ffaet That tha Provlalsna fur School
Heal.s Ara Bnttraly
Inndaqnats).
Mayor Rowan has vetoed the ordi
nance calling for a bond election on Jan
nary nth, and the election will now have
to be postponed. The notice of the
mayor's action was filed with tbe oity
clerk last night. In bis communication
to tbe council he says:
I herewith return without my ap
proval an ordinance calling an eleotion
on January 9, 1895, for tbe purpose of
veiling for or against the issuance of cer
tain bonds, which ordinance was adopted
by your honorable body on the 7th day
of December, 1894.
Tbe ordinance provides, among other
things, for bonds to tbe amount of $185,
--000, to be devoted to public school pur
poses. It does not specifically appear in
what manner this amount ia to be ex
pended, but I have the authority of the
superintendent of schools for saying
that the amount sought to bs raised is
not nearly sufficient for the purpose. It
should be supposed tbat the experienced
head of a department would be beet ac
quainted with its necessities, and it I
seems to me that your honorable body |
has hardly given sufficient weight to tha
recommendation! of the superintendent
of schools which are set forth in his
communication to you of date 29th Octo
ber last.
If it it a fact, as claimed by the super
intendent—and I have no reason to
doubt his figutes—that 2000 children are
being denied school facilities and that
an equal number are debarred from the
full enjoyment of the same, it is evident
tbat measures should at ones be taken
to remedy a state of things that is not
only injurious to the repntstlon of our
city, but hurtful to the children and our.
selves. I cannot see why any Bum re
quired for carrying out the work abso
lutely necessary to put our schools in
proper condition and increase their
facilities, should not be willingly voted.
I believe that the people of this city
will not bs niggardly when it comes to
paying for the support of the public
schools, and that it is tbe best policy to
ask now for the amount that is actually
needed in order to carry out the work
according to the sujgeetionß already
submitted to your honorable body.
It is admitted tbat tbe amount at this
time sought to be raised will only be
autlioient for temporary purposss, and
that a further amount will have to be
asked (or. This being the case, I think
it would be more economical and busi
nesslike to reconsider this school ques
tion and to place before tbe voters a
statement of everything that is needed
for the ochool Accommodation of our
rapidly growiug population. If this ie
done oqnnrely aud frankly, with careful
estimates of cost made by competent
men, I have not a doubt tbat the people
will respond by voting the bonds.
If, then, it is wise to provide for tbe
schools in this way and at the expense
of one election, it will certainly he good
business policy to see how ninch may
be required lor these necessities before
we decide upon the timount t > be asked
for for the enlargement end adornment
of onr porks and for other purposoe,
which, while they are important con
siderations, are yet eecondary to the
catine of education.
With regard to the bonds proposed for
tho Third street tunnel.it is in my jung
mont proper that the expenße oi that
improvement, if it can be so called,
should be borne by the district to be
particularly benefited by it when done.
1 notice, too, that the large Bum 0! $111,
--600 ie asked for the construction of the
tunnel, but that no provision is made
for the payment of damaires to the pro
perty owners who may be damaged by
the work,
Every election is a considerable ex
pense to tbe city, and their multiplica
tion should be avoided if possible. I
think that the school question could be
satisfactorily solved at one election,pro
vided that you will ask for enough mon
ey for the purpose, and thus avoid the
patchwork that will result from an at
tempt mnde with insufficient mennn.
the amount of which will only afford
accommodation far one-half the num
ber of children now deprived of tbe
moans of education.
In conclusion, I call your attention to
the fact that the public indebtedness
DOW outstanding on behalf of the ;
schools ia only $155 000 out of a total of
11,808,000. T. E. Rowan, Mayor. !
Tho city attorney was not prepared to
cay lnat night jost what effect the veto
will have, out the general impression is
that tbe election will be delayed for at
least two months.
The whole procedure of publishing the
ordinance, passing it and preparing for
a special election will have to bo gone
through with again, and this all takes
lime.
