NO VOTES FOR THE CHARTER
Pasadena Will Get Along Same
as Before
REV. LAUER ON THE MIND
Plenty of Church Services to Choose
From Today
The Water Supply at. the Devil's Gate
Inspected—News Notes and
Personal Mention
Pasadena, Feb. 23.—The charter has
gone the way of many bad ami some good
things. The document which was pro
duced by the board of fifteen freeholders
was presented to the voters of the city
today, and as predicted by The Herald,
met a cold frost. In fact it was snowed
under too deep to ever be revived again.
The poor thing didn't have a friend at
Court, or anywhere else, for that matter.
The only pity is that it did not die before
it was ever born, and save the city some
$1200 expenses incurred in drawing up
the charter, advertising and holding the
election. The affair lias been an unfor
tunate one from the first, and no one
seemed to be to blame but tbe Legislature
Which promulgated si".!i a clumsy, in
effective way of getting a new charter.
The total vote t./day was a little over 200,
and if any one was brave enough to vote
for the charter he has not been discovered
yet.
A NEW PHILOSOPHY
Rev. Lauer Tells o. Recent Discoveries About
the Brain
Pasadena, Feb. 23. —The first of a series
Of lectures upon the New Philosophy of
the Mind was delivered in G* A. K. Hah
last evening by Hey. Solon Lauer. A
large audience was present, and the at
tention of all was closely held during the
entire lecture, which was a scholarly ef
fort in every respect. The speaker held
that the old ideas in regard to the mind
and its limitations were fast passing
away. Recent research into the higher
phenomena of mind has shown that its
power and scope may not be measured by
the old standards.
The mind is being considered by the
leading thinkersjof the day as energy, its
phenomena obeying the known laws of
other forms of 'energy. Thought trans
mission alone, which has made such rapid
advance during the past few years, trans
cends the limits of the olii psychology
and demands a better theory of mind*
All material form has come out of tbe
invisible ami, according to science, will
again return to the Invisible. The body
of man is but a man's presentation of
the mind ami as such is under its con
trol. Recent experiments in France and
Germany by physicians in the treatment
of disease by suggestion, has met with
unlooked-for results and has opened a
wide field for investigation.
Under all the conflicting theories as to
mind cure there lies a natural law which
is susceptible of investigation and scien
tific statement.
The lecture will be continued on Friday
evening next at the same place. Rev.
Lauer has made a deep study of this par
ticular branch of thought and has pub
lished a number of works upon it. The
latest is Life and Light From Above. Lee

THE DEVIL'S GATE
Several Hundred People Visit the Piece and
Inspect the Water Supply
Pasadena, Feb. 23 —A large crowd vis
ited the Devil's Gate on a picnic today,
upon Invitation of the Lake Vineyard
Land and Water Company, for the purpose
of showing what has been done during the
past year in the way of developing water
and incidentally to have a good time.
The showing made was a remarkable one,
and every one was surprised at tbe amount
and character of the work which has been
carried on. By means of two tunnels
made in on the east bank of the Aroyo
SeOO, for a distance of about (100 feet, tne
supply has been increased from 21MI inches
last spring to .'Hill inches, which may be
depended upon the year around. The dis
covery of this source of supply was a most
fortunate stroke for Pasadena, as under
the old supply water was becoming decid
edly too scarce an article during tin; latter
Bummer months. The work was thor
oughly inspected by the people and a jo 1
outing enjoyed. Luncheon was served at
noon, C. C. BrOWn acting as master of
ceremonies in his usual graceful manner.
SAN BERNARDINO
The Auctioneer Ordinance Passed—rtore
Injunctions
San Bernardino, Feb. 22.—Today has
been generally observed as a holiday in
this city. The courts, county offices, city
offices, schools, newspapers and business
houses in general have suspended for the
day, and are quietly celebrating. Fla;, r s
are displayed from public buildings and
schools in honor of the holiday.
No elaborate celebration has been
planned fur the day, but numerous small
soical gatherings are reported, as well as
sports of various kinds, and in tin? even
ing the assembly hall, given by the ladies
of unity Guild, promises to be largely at
tended at the Armory.
Revivals seem to be epidemic in this
town. Key. S. Hartwell Pratt closed a
three-weeks' campaign last Sunday, in
j which four children were united. 'Three
' days before he finished Evangelist C. H.
| Yatman opened in tbe First Methodist
i Episcopal Church, and now it is an
nounced that Hey. S. M. Martin, the
evangelist who gave the town such a shak
ing up a year ago, will return and hold
forth in tne pavilion,beginning March 9th.
| This makes a protracted meeting of
| something like two months' duration.
The Citizens' Union has called a mass
( convention for Thursday night, February
j 27th, at Unity Hall, for the purpose <ii'
j nominating a full city ticket for the com
ing municipal elections. Ward con
[ ventions in the Third and Fifth wards are
called for Wednesday night. February
I 20th. The Third ward convention will
' meet at. the Metcalfe school house, while
! the Fifth ward will assemble at Mt. Ver
| non school house.
The Citizens' Union met again last
' night at Unity Hall and decided on these
I conventions, and among other items of
business which were transacted, seventy
) live new members were received into tbe
j union. This places the list of membership
! at something over 201.
j Among other matters which came up
| for consideration, the uni oi discussed
I the proposition of being represented in the
campaign by a paper, which should be
particularly their own organ!' The matter
was finally referred to the executive com
mittee, which will meet tonight and go
over the matter carefully. If thought ad
visable, a newspaper may be published
during the campaign, to be known as the
organ of the union.
The Board of City Trustees passed the
auction license ordinance, putting the tax
Bt 525.a quarter. This promises to settle
a question which has been an unfailing
source of disagreement, and already three
auction sales are announced for tomorrow.
Two more injunction suits*wero tiled
yesterday in the East Riverside Irrigation
District cases, whereby the collector for
the district is sought to'he restrained from
making the final transfer of property sold
for taxes. Gbed Barnard Hied a com
plaint in the Clerk's office in this city,
and H. W. Robinson began suit in Riv
erside county. The amount of the delin
quent taxes in the first named suit is ♦1009,
and about $700 in the latter.
RIVERSIDE
Big Injunction Suit, Involving Much Money,
Commenced
Riverside, Feb. 23.—A suit of consider
able importance was begun in the Supe
rior Court of this county today against
the Alessandro Irrigation district and the
collector of the district. Tho action is
brought to restrain the Assessor from as
sessing lands in the district to pay the
interest on $700,000 worth of bonds issued
by the district to the Bear Valley Com
pany; also to restrain the collector from
selling said lands for taxes levied to pay
the bonds. The complaint further asks
the court to declare said issue of bonds
invalid. It also avers that the execution
and delivery of the bonds to the Bear
Valley Company is in violation of the
Wright act, under which the district was
formed. A large number of land owners
in the district are plaintiffs, and the case
promises to be hotly contested. A tempo
rary order has been issued by the court,
in accordance witli the complaint, hold
ing good until tbe case is tried.
Baseball Today
The local league will give two scheduled
games of ball today at Athletic park. The
league has been reorganized and the
