Personal Mention.
Pasadena, Feb. 22.—The smooth confi
dencewoiker who did up so m.my Pasa
dena people under the name of Fairbank,
Slid whose transactions were given pub
licity for the first time through the col
umns of The Herald, is evidently more of
a high-roller than was at first thought.
It now appears that his transactions were
not confined to this city, but that in lx)s
Angeles he succeeded in doing up more
people than in this place.
Tbe most prominent victim in Los An
geles so far heard from is J. H. F. Peck,
who was defrauded out of $200 by tbe
|harp Work Of Fairbank. It was thought
from all acquaintance with Mr. Peck thut
Fairbank was able to Heece a number of
Pasadena people who knew Mr. Peck, and
|Upposed the fellow to be all right. In
addition to the amounts spoken of in
yesterday's correspondence, the fellow
passed bogus checks on A. A. Chubb for
$15; Storey ifc Mungcr, for $17, and M. L,
Clarke, $10. There are doubtless many
others who names have not yet been
The New Charter Not Satisfactory and Will Be
Knocked Out
Pasadena, Feb. 22.—Tomorrow the
voters of Pasadena will be called upon to
decide whether they think the new city
chatrer is good enough to accept as a
foundation for our city government.
From present appearances there is no
doubt that the charter will be consigned
to the waste basket, leaving the city to
struggle as best it may under the present
system, until relief is afforded from an
.other direction.
At the instance of the City Council a
number of lawyers have examined and
reported upon the document submitted by
the board of fifteen freeholders, and in
each case the report has been adverse.
The charter has been found not only to
he deficient in that it omits many im
portant features but its general construc
tion is so faulty as to render it of but lit
tle value. All agree that the proposed
measure is not in any manner suited to
the needs of a growing city, such as l'asa
(lenn is at the present time, to say nothing
of the Future. The Council at one time
seriously considered the matter of allow
ing the charter to rest until the regular
city election two years from this spring,
but it was decided thut the law made tii
matter of calling an election compulsory.
It is unfortunate that the charter is no
good as the city is in need of a new one
very badly. "The board of freeholder
method" fs, however, not a success and
it is likely that the present Legislature
-will repeal the law.
, No attempt will be made to submit an
other charter to the people under the
present law, but at the next session of the
Legislature amendments will likely be
made to the present charter which will
cover the necessary ground. The polling
places for the election tomorrow are as
Precinct I—At1 —At the office of the Pasadena
Lake Vineyard Land and Water Company,
18H East Colorado street.
Pjfeoinct 2 —The north room of the
frame building, 152 North Fair Oaks ave

Tourist) From Everywhere — Patriotism
and Poppies
Echo Mountain, Feh. 22.—The murky sky
of the curly morning iliit not frighten off
the excursionists who had planned a
trip to the mountains. The clouds van
ished, the sun shone forth encouragingly,
the sky put on its most bewitching hue
nnd tourists and their local friends gath
ered in great numbers to enjoy the charms
of mountain scenery.
Mr. and Mrs. John Schlegel of Brooklyn,
Mrs. Ella V. Pratt of Toledo, and John
]'. ilaoni of.Aurora, 111., were among the
tally-ho passengers. They enjoyed the
beautiful rido through the beautiful or
ange groves ami over the poppy.; hedecked
mesa, ami contrasted the green hillsides
and blossoming orchards with the deso
late snowtields of the blizzard swept East.
Of course Washington's natal day is an
appropriate time to engage in patriotic
exercises, and the D. A. It., which stands
for the Daughters of the American Revo
lution, improved the occasion. There are
8000 members of the national order and
they have two chapters in California—the
Sequoia chapter in Han Francisco, quite
strong in numbers, and the Eschscholtzia
chapter, recently organized in Los An
geles. Representatives of the latter con
vened at Echo mountain and banquetted
in a private dining room, supplementing
their feast with appropriate addresses
aud a poem. Among those present were
Miss Susan G. Pstton, regent; the Misses
Mary 11. Eliza I', and Clara H. Hough
ton, Mrs. Mary H. Banning, Miss Bann
ing, Mrs. Isabel J. Lacy, Misb Lacy of l.os
Angeles; Mrs. Frances Cooper of Santa
Barbara, and their friends, Colonel G. 0.
Houghton, Col. J. G. Chandler, United
States army, and wife, of Los Angeles,
and Wilton *Norris of Xew York.
Of course the golden California poppy
constituted the principal decoration of
the fair daughters. Professor James sug
gested that the initials "D, A. R." should
have an "c" inserted after the first letter,
some one else that it should be inserted
after the last letter. WhicUs right?
Andrew McNully escorted a highly in
terested party up the great incline, con
sisting of Robert Miller, general manager
of the Michigan Central Railroad system,
Mrs. Miller, their son, G. A. Miller,
student of the University of Michigan,
nil from Detroit, and Mrs. O. W. Ruggles
ami Miss Ruggles of Chicago. Mr. Slc-
Nally succeeded in giving his friends a
magnificent view of a large section of
Southern California.
Robert D. Wade, chief deputy of the
County Tax Collector, and director in the
Redondo Railway Company, was accom
panied by his charming daughter, and
they took an exploring trip over the new
grade to the wild and romantic scenes in
Grand Canyon.
T. D. Stimson drove up to Altadena
with a friend and joined the big crwds on
the trolley and incline cars. He is as
tonished at the improvements that are
continually being made every time he
visits Echo Mountain. He says there is
only one Professor Lowe.
Mr. and Mrs. James Burdett of Los
Angeles were enjoying the ozone of Mount
Lowe. Quite a large and appreciative audi
ence gathered in the rotunda while Mrs.
Barrett, who is the soprano of the First
Presbyterian Church choir, sang with ex
quisite taste several beautiful songs.
The register contained names from most
of the states of the Union, besides several
foreign countries, including those anti
podes of each other, England and New

The Mexican Officials Release the
Seized Cattle

Sn Illinois Lady Tourist at Phcenlx.
More About the Cattle
Yuma, Ariz., Feb. 20.—The glad news
came to the American cattlemen last
Thursday that the stock which had been
seized by the Mexican officials had all
been ordered released, says the Yuma
Times. Colonel Juan Fenohcio, Chief of
Customs at Ensemidu, came here Satur
day evening to see that his order was
carried out. Baker and Hanlon had pre
viously been notified that they were free
to gather up their stock at any time.
The owners are given until the first of
April to round np their cattle, but owing
to the bad condition of the river bottoms,
caused by the recent high water, longer
time will be required. Inspector Wolfe of
the Mexican Customs Service says it will
take at least six months to r< ver all the
stock. Up to last Monday Baker and Han
lon's men had succeeded in getting about
200 head of their own and Joe Carter's
stock. The cattle are in fair condition,
but the horses have been ridden nearly to
death by the Mexicans. They also butch
ered about thirty head of cattle oi their
own use, besides using up fifteen tans of
hay. Altogether Mr. Baker estimates
his loss at linoo. He will at once move
the remnant of his herd bad; to his ranch
on the Gila near Tacna.
Phoenix, Ariz., Feb. 20.—Excellent ore

Tremendous Catches of Pith—Some Recent

The address of welcome was made by
| Ho Id ridge O. Collins, president of the so
[ ciety, and is as follows:
We realize tonight the culmination of
t our work of eighteen months, a labor of
i love to all of us, but one also of ditti
: cultics, anxieties and great discourage*
! ment.
You are all aware of the disadvantages
| under which this society was organized,
■ owing to the restrictions thrown ahout the
J election of members and the absence on
; this Coast of all official records concerning
! the actors in the Revolutionary War.
j But we have happily overcome all dif
; iieultics, our society! Sons of the Revolu
tion, enters upon the second year of its
existence with an enthusiastic member
ship, an assured treasury, and recognised
as one of the permanent organizations of
the great commonwealth ol California.
We are an integral unit of a great pa
triotic confederation in which we iiml
, brothers and a home in every state of this
j republic.
To me personally, it is a source of grati-
I fication and pleasure to welcome you,
brothers, contra lea and guests, to tlt is
celebration of the Natal day of our Na
tion's saint, knowing that we have met,
not solely to feast upon this banquet, but
Ito commemorate the establishment of our
1 society and to honor the name of him who
j was first tit the hearts of his countryman.
What is our society and why was it called
Into existence? Do you need an answer
from me?
Last summer a gentleman called upon
j me, stating that his great-grandfather was
j a soldier in the Revolution, and request
) ing information concerning ourorganiza
| tion.
I gave him copies of our constitution,
,by daws and other printed matter, show
ing what had been accomplished by the
I pastern societies as well as our own and a
1 general outline of what wo propose to do.
Boon after he returned to my office,
1 stating that lie had read these documents,
j and then he said: "Mr. Collins, I can't
, see any use for such an organization. We
i have too many societies now, und 1 don't
1 appreciate any advantage in joining an
association for the purpose of being
; entitled to wear ft' pretty insignia and
parading the streets behind a buff and
: blue (lag."
1 may illustrate my feelings as to the
I obtuseness of my friend by an anecdote,
; followed by an amusing story concerning a
! New Yorlc Jewish witness, which was
, received with great laughter. What is
our Society ami why was it called into
existence ?
Our society is a body of patriotic Amer
icans, and its purposes are the preserva
tion ;and conservation of those institu
tions which we Americans chersh as our
We are the most aristocratic Democracy
and the most Democratic aristocracy oil
the face of the globe.
The millionaire, the political leader, or
the social autocrat cannot pass the poi
tals of our halls unless he lie descended
from a patieipant on the Colonnial side
in our war for independence, and un
less he be a man of integrity, worthy and
well qualified and respected by his neigh
bors. The laboer, who earns his bread in
the sweat of his daily toil, if qualified, is
as welcome tv us as he who sits in the
executive chair or presides in our courts
of justice.
A society non-politicfal inpttblie affairs
and non-sectarian in religious beliefs,
teaching love of country, having for one
of its principles the charge of the Roman
.Senate to her consuls: "Videant Con»
sules, ne quid detrimcnti republics
Capiat." constantly on its guard to protect
those institutions for which our ancestors
toiled during eight long bitter years—
and now endangered by an ignorant and
anarchitslc foreign immigration— cannot
be but for good.
We arc catholic in the broadest sense.
We know no North, no South, no Bast
no West. The descendants of the heroes
of Bunker Hill, of hong Island, of Mon
mouth and Princeton, of the Cowpens
and Savannah, can cast no reflections
upon any section of the land where all did
so well.
JJjWe are a nation, and gentlemen, the
Hons of the Revolution propose to see that
we remain a nation and with a pretty
large N to the end of time.
Cardinal De Retz said: "Laws that are
not supported by arms are quickly des
pised, and arms that are not tempered by
laws turn quickjy to anarchy."
"We believe our laws to be just and equit
able to all, and we as Individuals and as
a body of Americans are ready to shoulder
the rifle to assist in the enforcement of
those statutes enacted by our delegates.
"We have trust in our judiciary from
Chief Jutsice Fuller down through the
long list to the last nominee on the Senate
by the President of the United States, and
I thank God that iv that time of terrific
peril and anxiety last summer, we had
a judge at our own fireside who combined
with the calmness of the profound jurist,
the courage of a soldier and the patriot
ism of our ideal American.
Nor are we less slow to recognize and
uphold the liberty of the press, and to ex
tend our hands with praise to those lead
ers of public opinion who stand upon the
side of law and order agains riot and an
archy. "
Is the question answered, What is the
society and why was it called into exist
The heroes of our war have all passed
"The knights' bones are dust,
Their good swords are rust,
Their spirits with the saints we trust. '
And it is meet that we should assemble
to celebrate their virtues ad heroic deetls.
From the Boston Tea Party, when
"Ne'er was mingled such a draught
In palace, hall or arbor.
As freeman browed and tyrant quaffed,
Th.it night in Huston harbor,"
to the final achievement of their triumph
ant independence, all their toils, their
suft'erinngs am! sacrifices, we follow them
with .in humble gratitude, and wonder
at their invincible courage and firm de
termination that we will preserve the
country and the country's institutions
which they won hy such an expenditure of
blood and treasure.
With this love for their deeds, however,
is mingled a present content and happi
ness in our modern times, and we may
properly join or pa*ons for our enlight
ened posterity to the more sober reflections
u;»on the toils of our ancestors. In the
words of Sir Toby Belch :
"Dost thou think because thou art virtuous
there shall be no more cakes and ale?"
PVom my heart I thank you for the
honors you have seen proper to confer
upon me. I welcome you all. and I drink
to your future happiness and prosperity
