RIVEKCIDE. Oct. 3.—About forty or
ange growers whose groves are located
east of the upper canal of the Riverside
Water company and between tne north
county line and the big arroya, gathered
in the city court rojm last evening for
the purpose of organizing a branch fruit
association similar to those in operation
in the valley.
A. Martin called the meeting to order
and L. C. Waite was unanimously chosen
chairman and Mr. Martin secretary.
F. E. Abbott stated briefly the object of
the meeting,after which Secretary, Mat tin
read the names of some thirty growers
who bad signed the following agreement
during the past few days:
"We, tho undersigned growers of or
anges and lemons east of the uppei sanal
of tbe Riverside Water company, hereby
agree to ,'orm ourselves into an associa
tion for the purpose of picking, deliver
ing, paking, selling and shipping tho
oranges and lemons grown east of the
npper canal and south of the north
boundary line of Riverside county to es
tablish a special brand and be connected
with and eoverned by tho rules and reg
ulations of the Riverside Fruit exchange,
and to be duly incorporated when at least
100 carloads have been subscribed."
Secretary Martin, in answer to a ques
tion, stated that the names on the agree
ment represented HO carloads, but before
tbe meeting adjourned enough more had
signed to run the ligure up to 170 cars.
On motion of' Oscar Ford the meeting
voted to proceed to incorporate. Chair
man Waite stated that it would be neces
sary to choose a board of directors tor
purposes of incorporation, and upon a
vote being taken S. H. Herrick, L. C.
Waite, F. E. Abbott, A. Haberlin, C. F.
Marcy, P. D. Cover and Priestly Hall
were elected such board.
The matter of naming tho new com
pany next attracted attention. Several
names were suggested, but the one sug
gested by F. E. Abbott, La Mesa Fruit
company of Riverside, tound the most
favor and was unanimously adopted.
On motion of P. L. Lord a committee
of three to draw up a set of by-laws was
appointed as follows: P. L. Lord, C. F.
Marcy and A Haberlin.
On motion of Oscar Ford a committee
of five, consisting of O. Ford, F. E. Ab
boit, A, Marten, P. I). Cofer and J. 11.
Urquhart, was appointed to prepare a
form of contract for tbe use of thu com
After adopting the articles of incorpor
ation as presented t ie meeting adjourned.
The moating was a particularly unan
imous and enthusiastic one, whu.h augurs
well for the success of tho now company,
which starts out with a very large repre
sentation of the growers in the district
The Cumminn.s brothers were taken to
Ean Quentin yesterday morning, Sheriff
Johnson and Ben R. Smith being in
charge of the men. They will reach tho
big prison, wnich will be to them their
last earthly home, about noon today if
no bad luck ia encountered en route.
Tbe boys, whsn summoned yesterday
morning to get ready for the journey,
hastily obeyed, and after donning their
best clothes and eating a hearty break
fast, they announced their readiness to
bei'in the journey. In fact, the buys
■bowed by their actions that they were
more pleased than otherwise over the
prospect of a change from the cells they
bave occupied so long, not that they
were not well and considerately treated
by the officers here, but presumably be
cause any kind of a change was to them
a relief.
Both the boys bid the officers about
tbe jail, as well as a few outsiders who
were present, a pleasant good-bye,
which farewell, in tho light of past
events of the last few days, is undoubted
ly a farewell in every sense of the word,
a last one at that.
Since the boys received their sentence
and up to their departure they said but
little concerning the fate that is in store
far them, but they no doubt feel that
there is bone while there is hfo.
It is understood that the sisters of the
boys have mortgaged their home at El
Monte to raise funds to prosecute and
•arrv up an appeal for their unfortunate
brothers, thus showing true sistelry love
and again proving true the aaynig that
bloou is thicker tnan water.
If the appeal in tbe case is sent up
there can he no question that the lives of
tbe condemned men will be prolonged
for some months at least, inasmuch as
the suprem i court would not reach tho
appeal until the April term next year,
and in the meantime the appeal acts as a
»tay of judgment.
It may b* that the boys will have to be
borught back here for resentence but no
one thinks for a moment that they will
ever get a new trial.
Tne case of George H. Hohensholl of
Elsinore against the South Riverside
Land and Water company, was called in
the superior conrt oefore Judge Noyes
yesterday morning.
He prays for an injunotion against the
water company on the grounds that the
dam which they have constructed at the
outlet of the lake near Elsinore has
raised the level of the lake ten feet, and
alleges that he and a large number of
land owneri, whose land borders on the
lake, aro being damaged by the defend
ant by reason of the lake overflowing on
their land. The allegation sets forth that
the defendant has dammed »he outlet lo
the height of ten feet and that it is im
possible to cultivate the land, and that
the defendant has threatened to further
dam it by raising the water in tno lake.
The land contiguous to the lake is rich
and producitve and two crops per year
can be raised. t
The action is brought to restrain tbe
defendant from further damming the
lake and to causa them to take down tho
dam and bulkhead. It is alleged that
since the 13th of March, the lake has
been rising rapidly and that by reason
of the dam seven acres of tillable land
has been wrongfully and illegally over
The defendant denies the allegation in
toto and asserts that there has been no
dangei done owing to any fault ot theirs.
Attorneys Collier and Evans of River
side appear in the action for tiie plain
tiTf and E. W. Freeman, esq., of Elsinore
represents the defendant. The plaintiff
introduced three witnesses yesterday,
-Messrs. Lilly, Brewer and Dickey and
will produce several more today.
I Timo was when Ed Pinaud (he should
not be confounded with the celebrated
I perfumer by that name), and Boy Gar
tield (no relation whatever to tho dead
president), were, against their inclina
tions, guests of Sheriff Johnson's hotel
on Seventh street as common, everyday
gentlemen or leisure, with no perceptible
means of sustenance. That time was
not so very long ago, but strange things
may come to pass in a shoit time. It
will he remembered that Wallace's show
struck town Tuesday and among those
who remained after the performance to
see the grand concert was Unaer Sheriff
Ed Lacy. He watched each and every
performer with interest, and when a boy
m tights, resplendent with gold bangles,
came out and astonished the audience by
deraontsrating his ability as a dancer.
Lacy looked harder, and then in a very
dramatic tone exclaimed to a triend.
"Where have I seen that tace before?"
Then a light such as ne'er shown on land
or sea, flashed on the guardian of the
peace and the artiste was identified, and
here is tbe record which the register at
tho county jail contains:
"Hoy Garfield, Indio, hobo, 10 days;
released Tuesday, October Ist."
Tbe hobo, who, by the way, was
"pinched" by Constable W'esTerheld ten
days ago at indio, was a thespian in dis
guise, and Mr. Wallace had recognizd his
ability and the new acquisition proved
to be one of the hits of the show.
If Lacy had. strolled around to the
cook's tent he might have seen Ed Pin
aud, ex-hobo, wrestling with pots and
kettles and other appurtenances of the
kitchen. Tbe two "ex-hobos ' left with
the circus "over the not sands" for Yu
ma, and "the band played on."
I Hugh Higgins, the brother of WilljHig
gins who was kliled by falling from a
backet into a well on the Smith property
in West Riverside Tuesday night, is
somewhat improved today, but he is
still mentally unbalanced.
Late developments show that he had a
very narrow escape from being overcome
by the gas in the bottom of the well. He
I went down after his brother and had
i been down at the bottDm of the well
| nearly a quarter of an hour when W. S.
Barber,a carpenter at work on the house,
: ran to the well and was lowered. Ho
\ found Hugh in a weak condition, and
| promptly cutting *,the bucket from the
! rope, tied the rope under the shoulders
jof William Hlggins and seni him to tho
I top and then told Hugh to grasp the rope
I and be pulled up. After both men had
I reached the top, Barber went up himself.
Had Barber not been so prompt and self
possessed, the death last night might
have been increased to two.
Fabian Modcno, who is charged with
criminal assault on 12-year-old Louisa
Pa,was arraigned for trial in the superior
court yesterday afternoon. Judge Noyes
appointed Robert Duncan to prosecute
him in tbe absence of the district attor
ney, and George Skinner to defend nim.
The case will be tried tomorrow morn

PASADENA, Oct. 3.-Appearances in
ilicate that there will bo no more liquor
cases t.'ied until after the decision is ren
dered in the Fluke case, which is to be
argued before Judge Smith in depart
ment one of tho nuperior court on Mon
day. The trial of Dr. W. H. Pirtle has
again been postponed, this time until
next Tuesday, the other cases being also
postponed until next week. The delay
in the issuance of the other complaints
is the subject of considerable comment,
since it was understood from the first
that there were to be complaints issued
against a large number of violators of the
law, and so far but two out of the eight
drug stores have had formal complaints
lodged against them. It is just as well
known that there are other druggists
equally guilty and It is a matter of com
mon knowledge that there are many res
taurants that sell liquor all day long
without the slightest restraint. Rgard
less of where tho blame may rest for this
apparent discrimination, it would seem
to be but fair that if anything is to bs
done at all no partiality should be shown,
but all who are guilty should be brought
before the bar of justice, without regard
to persons. Proceedings in the gambling
cases are awaiting the arrival of the text
of the recent decision; of Justico Ileatty
of tho supremo court, wQich is thought
to have application in the cases now
about to be tried. Mr. Appel, attorney
for tho defense, makes the point hat the
complai.its are defective, inasmuch as
they characterize draw poker as a per
centage game. The charge against the
defendant is that he unlawfully played
and bet money at a percentage game,
towit, draw poker. It was pointed out
by the attorney that in the list of twelve
games named by the statute draw poker
is not found and is therefore not desig
nated as a percentage gam? per se. Ac
cording to the defendants' attorney,draw
poker, not being named, and being well
known not to be in itself a percentage
game, cannot be assumed in the com
plaints to be such a game, and therefore
to charge that in playing draw pflker at
a certain time and place as a percentage
game was unlawiully played does not
state a cause of action. What construc
tion the court will put upon this point
remains to be Been. Snould it be avoid
ed that it is well taken, it will be neces
sary to amend the complaints, this being
merely a technicality in the drawing up
of them.

Several Changes Made in Methods of

News Notes
POMONA,Oct.3.—The Pomona fruit ex
change held its annual meeting in tho
board of trade rooms yesterday afternoon
and completed its labors today. There
was a large attendance of the memebrs.
The meeting was addressed by Thomas
Morehose, the New York representative
of tho Southern California fruit ex
changes, P. E. J'latt, t!i6 Chicago repre
sentative, T. H. B. Cbamblin of Kivor
side and Secretary Collins of Pomona.
■Several of ,the changes that have been
advocated hy the newspapers were favor
ed. 'One was that hereafter fumigated
lruit Jand washed fruit should not be
shipped together, but each class should
stand alone and be sold on its merits;
another, that the exchanges must sell
their fruit in the east and not hero. To
do so it will be necessary for them to es
tablish distributing houses there and put
somo of the best salos agents in the lield
that can be had.
The Progress in its report of tho pro
ceedings says: Tlio claim that some
outsiders received more for their fruit
than members of the exchange was well
answered by the question, "How many
outsiders received less?" It is well
known that many who sold outside of tbe
exchanges got less than exchange prices;
only a few of them will own up to what
they received and some are now engaged
in law suits to get what belongs to them.
No evidence has cvsr been offeretl that
those who sold outside of the exchanges
received more than tho members of those
organizations, and few—if any—believe
that such is the case. The co-onerative
plan of marketing the orange crop is un
questionably tho proper ono; and what
ever changes are necessary in the ex
changes to put them on an equitable
basis of organization and enable them to
do business on the best business princi
ples should be adopted.
The following board of directors were
