RAILROAD BUSINESS BOOMING.
Heavy Freight, and Passenger Traffic Reported. Santa Fe and Southern Pacific Again at Loggerheads. A Megjoineenl Train Dua Here Tonight ■t tbe Aroerte Daptit—Gerd'e Appointment. Freight officials of the transcontinen tal roads In this city say that more freight is now coming into Southern California from the east than has been at any other time in six yean. A very large percentage of thia freight consists of household goods. At one of tbe freight offices applications are made daily by people who beg tbat their goods may be permitted to remain in tbe de pot for a few days till tbe owners can fiud houses to live in. These facts speak weil for Los Angeles end indioate that the present winter is likely to be one ol great business activ ity and large accessions to our popula tion. THK POMONA AND EI.MSOHIt. Riverside Enterprise: A amall item in yesterday's issue ooncernlng tbe ef forts of tbe Southern I'acitio in tbe line of securing a right of way over ths old Pomona and Elsinore boom day rail' road route, caused considerable com ment on tbe streets yesterday. It also eauaed tbe Enterprise to investigate jast what movements the company was making in tbe city in the right of way matter, and it was learned that in addi tion to the property recently secured by the company ou the East Side, negotia tions were still pending with property owners In that section for more lots. On December 14th Col. T. J. Wilson, route agent for the company, placed seven deeds on Hie in the recorder's of fice (or tbe same number of pieces of property lying along the alleyways par allel to and east of Pachappa avenue. The seven deeds In* question were given by L. W. Collins. J. W. Merrill, C. T. White, A. Duncan, I. Roboins, Hester Oaatleman and Mra. F. A. Cairna. Several other parties owning lend in the same vicinity who were questioned abont tbe matter acknowledged tbat they bad bad overturea from the com pany, or, to be exact, from what ia known as the Pacific Improvement com pany, which ia the same as the railroad oompany itself, for their property, and from tbe way some of those were spoken to it is likely that more deeds will be re corded by Mr. Wilson before long;all of which goea to show that the Sonthern Pacific company intends coming into Riverside in the very near future. The looation of tbe property purchased by the oompany as noted above indicates further that the company will come into the oitv practically on the same line included in the franchise asked for by the Motor company, or rather by Mr. O. T. Dyer, some two years ago. At one time it was thought the com pany would some in parallel with the Santa Fe road, bnt on tbe west side of the latter, but this plan is certainly out of tbe question in view of tbe purchases recorded above. It is not likely tbat any move towards coming in will be made until all the necessary right of way has been aeoured, wtien the Southern Pacific iron horse will no donbt soon make ita appearance in tbe oity. TUB TRANSCONTINENTAL LINKS. Chicago, Dee. 21.—Now that tbe Canadian Pacific and its affairs have for the time being been removed from tbe consideration of the western lines they have taken up a matter which promises to give them almost at much trouble be fore they are through with it as did the Canadian Pacific. Thia ia tbe old trouble between the Atebiaon and Southern Pacific regarding the ratea via San Diego. When tbe meeting convened thia morning Paaaenger Traffic Manager White of the Atehiaon announced tbat before the meeting to perfect a trans continental association had been called tbe Atchison road had been promised by the Southern Pacific that if it wonld become a party to the agreement tbe old troubles at San Diego would be settled. Tbe meeting bad gone on for three weeka and aa yet the Atch ison had bsen able to have nothing done toward tbe adjustment of ita af faire. This could not go on longer, and Mr. White made a demand for tbe ad justment of the matter. The roads at once took up tbe matter and were en gaged with it for tbe entire day. No definite action waa taken and the same thing will be nnder discussion tomorrow afternoon. Earnings of tbe entire syatem of the Atchieon road for the second week in December were $790,893, a decrease compared with the same week of last year of $64,515. The earnings of the month to date are $1,656,702, a decrease of $90,725. The increase over last year for the month to date in the earnings of the Colorado Midland is $6,828. NEW OFFICERS. At the annual meeting of the Santa Fe, Preseott & Phoenix Railway com pany, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: F. M. Murpby, Presoott, Ariz., president; G. W. Vangbn, Presoott, Ariz., vice-president, general manager and chief engineer; O. G. Bowen, Detroit, Mich , seerstary and treasurer; F. J. Sarmiento, Chicago, 111., assistant seoretary and treasurer; G. W. Kretzinger, Chicago, Hi., general counsel; F. A. Heeley, Preacott, Ariz., auditor and general freight and pasaen ger agent; F. M. Murphy, G. W. Vaughn and C. O. Bowen, exsentive committee. NOT WORRIED. The announcement of tbe incorpora tion of the San Francisco and Los Ange les railroad in the former city leaves the railway men here very oalm and unex aited. The incorporation is due to the expiration of the franchise of the San Francisco and Atlantic Railroad oom pany, which had no property and no capital and the present step ia consid ered merely a precaution to prevent the old franchise from lapsing. A SPLENDID TRAIN. Tonight at 8:10 o'elook the weekly Sunset limited train will arrive in this city from New Orleans, en route to San Francisco. Its appointments are mag nificent, consisting of a hotel car, dining rooms, sleeping and parlor oar, barber shop and library. On leaving the Cres cent city there were 89 passengers on board, but this number is apt to be In creased to a great extent before the Golden Gate city is reached. NO WASHOUTS. General Manager JL H, Wads of the We find that in many respects the service is inefficient and inadequate. Passengers (both men and women) are often compelled to stand from one end of the line to the other in consequence of the company not running a sufficient number of cars. Many of the cars ran on the cable lines are totally unfit to be used in rainy or cold weather. They subject passengers to exposures which are likely to result in sick ness and death. The same may be said of the trailers run on the electric lines.—[Extract from the Report of the Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. Southern California railway is greatly pleased with the success of the precau tions he bad taken to prevent damages to his road by rain. Mr. Wade has terraced and ditched the most exposed portions of the road bed in the Cajon pass, and although the tremendons amount of five inches of rain fell there in the recent storm, no harm waa done. By hia action in this work be has saved hia company a great many thousands of dollars. PERSONAL MATTERS. O. K. Cusbing of ths freight depart ment of the Sonthern Pacific railroad, and well known in social circles, has gone to San Fransisco to eat Christmas turkey with bis parents. Ex-United States Marshal Gsorge E, Card, who has been appointed chief claim agent of the Southern Pacific, with rseidenee in San Francisco, will remove with hia family to tbat point some time next week. "KID" THOMPSON PLEADS HIS ATTORNEYS FILE A DEMUR RER TO THE INFORMATION Judge Smith Overrule! It and the Kid Pleade Not Guilty. Tbe fact tbat "Kid" Thompson waa to appear before Judge Smith yesterday morning attracted a large crowd of the morbidly curious to the court room of department one of the auperior court. By 10 o'clock standing room was at a premium, and Deputy Sheriff Yonkin had bia hands full in his endeavor to maintain order befitting the dignity of the court. Tbe proceedings were short, sharp and pointed. When Deputy District Attorney Davis had finished reading the information oharging Thompson with dsrailing a passenger train with intent to commit robbery, and with having boarded and robbed a pasaenger train, Thompson's attorneys, Messrs. Adama and Garrett presented a demurrer to the information on the ground that is was void under the statutes, as it charged Thompson with having oommitted two offenses. This was overruled by Judge Smith and Thompson then entered a plea of not guilty. It is understood that his attorneys will attack the constitutionality of the law which declares it ia a capital offeoee to derail a train, and they ezpreaa great confidence in their ability to secure an acquittal when the case eomss to trial. kid Thompson's truck solo. The Pbcenix Republican, of December 19, says that the effeots of Kid Thomp son, tbe train robber, were sold at auc tion yesterday in front of Fuqna's sta bles. A horae, saddle and bridle brought only $8. The horae was a very good an imal and the aaddle itself was worth three timea aa muoh aa tbe price of the whole lot. A 44 Winchester rifle, good as new, sold for $3 and another repeat ing rifle was knocked down for $1.50. Police Court Vases. William Kramer, tbe German con victed of stealing an overcoat from the buggy of 11. M. Russell a week ago, was yesterday sentencod by Justice Auatin to 100 days in tbe chain gang. John Say lea got 40 days for vagrancy.

I.OS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 22, IBM, A LIVING PICTURE. THEIR WORK IS CONCLUDED. Premillennialists Adjourn with Enthusiasm. Dr. Roland D. Kraut on "The Day of His Coming:." The OonhlillM Wlndt Cp With Toltlmo- Dials From ••All Who Lure Ills Appearing." Yesterday was tbe concluding day of the Premillennial conference,which ha* been held since Tuesday in the First Baptist church, corner of Sixth street and Broadway. A considerable amount of interest has been evinced in this con ference, and several papera of a bigb theological value have been read during the session, several of which were re ported at length in these colnmns. Among the papers tbat were read yesterday were those of the Rev. George E. Dye on the Holy Spirit and Second Advent; Characteristics of tbe Millen nium, by Rev. J. S. Mabie, D. D.; The Rupture and the Revelation, by Rev. W. C. Stevens; Is tbe Present Christian Dispensation a Failure, by Rev. A. C. Junkin, D. D. The concluding lecture of tbe confer ence waa entitled, The Day of His Com ing. It waa written by Rev. Roland D. Grant, D.D., of Portland, Ore., but it waa read by Dr. Read, paator of the Firat Baptist ohurob. Tbe divine bad taken for his text, Mark 13-32: "But ol that day and hour kuoweth no man; no, not tbe angola in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father." Aa to the atudlea of the prophecies, he said, there are two prevailing views; both are extremists. One class insists npon coming to definite data aa to the time of our Lord's return. All its cal culations are based upon exact data, bringing about very close results. This class is known as "definite timists." The other class quite thoroughly ab jures tbe wbole thing; treats definite time as though it was almost a sin. It either spiritualizes the prophetical por tions of scripture, or brings tbem to fulfillment at the destrnction of Jerusa lem or some earlier event. Either claaa ia quite aevere in its oriticisms of the other. Wbiie the definite timiata are over-likeW to run into fanaticiam, the "no timiata" sin equally much, either by an indolent unwillingness to enter into careful study of tbe prophecies, or by a misconception of tbe wbole plan. The text which had been quoted ia a favorite one with those wbo reject so-called time questions. Tbey say "this once for all settles the matter of non-knowing." It would be the lecturer's purpose to find, tf possi ble, a medium ground and a proper balancing of this verse. He would ven ture to study tbe deepest meaning in all the worda of the verse. By analyzing every portion of tbe text and by bring ing to beer upon each an array of quo tations from tbe Bible, be succeeded in the taak he had carved out for bimaelf. Among aome ol the remarks made by tbe reverend iecturer was tbe following: When we say tbat He oame from the non-time to this time condition, let no one.find comfort for the Unitarian idea or want of idea. Christ was God pro jecting Himself into these hnman condi tions for the purpoae of making forgive ness possible. The wbole so-called sys tem that lets down from tbe divinity of Christ we sincerely despise. n conclusion tbe lecturer said that his object was to correct the non-know ing suffering Christ with His churoh and with all the final prophetio glory of the Apocalypse. In reply to tbe ques tion, "Why do we not know ol tbe ex act moment of our Lord's return?" he would say that there were four answers. First—Because of oar stnpidity. It is a question of human limitation, lack of spiritual light and insight. The exact mojaaant eartainlv ia thara. hidden. among the mystic symbols. Second— We find a difficulty in the perspective of prophecy. Third—Prophecy was not given for the purpose of knowing what wonld happen tomorrow. Fourth- Does the church want Him to come? Did yon not bear it said: "I do not care when He comes, so only I he ready." We are commanded to watch ; it is not a suggestion, but a command. The attitude of the church from first to last is tbat of watching like the dog peering in the darkness beyond, and he will not be surprised. Some watch tbe prophecies, not with a mathematical eye, for they are not for the brain so much as for tbe heart. Tbey have been treated with dry calculation, but tbey were given for spiritual life and bless ing. At the conclusion of this paper testi monies were called for from ''all who love hia appearing," which were heart ily given by many of the very large eon greation. The conference finally con cluded with a great and fervent reli gions enthusiasm. VALUABLE SUGGESTIONS BY THK BUPKRVISOIUATi CONFER ENCE COMMITTEE.
