In connection witb the sessions ot the
Woman's Parliament of Southern Cali
fornia, which is now being held in tbis
city, there is an interesting question to
be settled. Who are California's promi
nent women? Are tbey the native born
women wbo have achieved distinction
here and elsewhere, or are they women
born in otber parts ot the country who
have done or are doing tbeir most note
worthy work in California?
In the field of state biographies, for in
stance, whore should tbe line be drawn?
The question "Who are California wo
men?" oan best be answered by them
selves. Women seem to differ in local
attachments. But the more advanced
classes take deepest root where they can
individually thrive. It is largely a mat
ter of feeling and sentiment. A woman
of 50, wbo was born in Illinois, but bas
spent the last twenty years in Californis,
aaid recently: "I can scarcely claim now
to be an Illinois woman. I never did
much there but keen tbe tires going in
winter and all the year around wash
dishes and peel potatoes. Here I
have painted pictures. Here only
would the best of me seem to have been
bom." 'Another woman said: "I wished
lately in giving data for my oiography
tbat I need not say I was born any
where. My pride consists in being a
Southern California woman, although 1
did not come here until past 30."
Therefore in a strife among biographers
of local celebrities tbere seems to be but
on* solution of d itticu 1 ties, and tbat is to be
given by tba person most concerned.
However, it is a pleasant thins to meet
women from all parts of tbe globe and
-find that a majority of those wbo have
migrated to California prefer to have it
aaid tbat tbey belong to it.
Of Frances Willard some one said: "The
whole country claims hdr, but she was
born in Wisconsin."
One very highly gifted woman who
first saw tbe light in Ohio, but lias
nearly always lived in California, and
would fain be considered a native, mod
estly smiled md said: "Genius has no
age or birthplace," thus refusing to be
localized, though she did not assert that
all the privileges of genius were naturally
allowed her.
Is Gladstone's position rigot wben he
■ays tbat no biography of a man or wo
man should be published until thirty
years after the death of tbe subject?
Perhaps be has been incorrectly reported.
At any rate, the newspapers of today
are much more interesting to the average
reader than tbey would be if cuts and
tiographical paragraphs related only to
the men and women whose voices and
pens have been silent over a quarter of a
The agricultural department of the
itate university is going to put a barbed
wire fence on tbeir forest plantations at
Santa Monica. Their inspector, Mr.
Shinn, says that this will be done on ac
count of the thefts of seeds, etc., from
tbe forest trees at the station. In the
Saota Monica Outlook he says that "it
ia likely the theft waa committed by
some fioiist, botanist or scisntific per
son." Tbe thief coming from this class
of criminals was doubtless deemed by
Mr. Shinn not to delong to any depart
ment of the Berkeley town agriculturists.
If tbe theft was committed by a florist, a
botanist or a scientific person, it is clear
tbat the Heintz-Hilgard combine is inno
cent. The management has intentionally
or unintentionally taken one measure
after another to keep these thief florists
and botansts and scientific persons out of
the forestry stations. They have tried a
pack of savage dogs let loose about the
place; that failing, they fired the florists,
botanists and scientific people bodily off,
books, microscopes and all. This seemed
•ummary and effective, but tbe citizens'
league, the chamDer of commerce, tbe
board cf supervisors, etc., took excep
tions to this method of exclusion and
they bad to drop it. A general oampaicn
of all-around slander was tben mixed
witb tbe regular allotments of self-praise
In which their managers are adepts. Ail
this did not quite clear the ground of the
offensive florists, botanists and scientific
persons, but it is thought that the barbed
wire fence, with the dogs, the guardian
and tbe slander, will finally keep tbese
thieves away. It is certainly provoking
to have oriminals like florists, botanists
and sceientitic persons nosing about tbe
atation. In tbis case it became particu
larly so after tbese people found out that
no one connected with tho concern ap
pealed to know one tree from another.
Guess work does very well in putting out
tree labels until'some of Sbinn's thieves
In the scientific line tnrn up, and then
it becomes awkward. The management
■say or may not have selected the best
way out of their dilemma by calling
every one a thief who criticised them.
Wcjwlll watch with interest tbe compan
ion campaign of the political lobby of
certain printers-ink agriculturists to kill
the varions boards of commission tbat
serve the state gratuitously and to obtain
for themselves tbe property and appro
priations of these various organizations.
Sfea eaaapaisa against tae baud of boiti
culture includes nut only tbe usual per
sonal detraction and alander, but also tbe
neoessity, by gas or by spraying, of kill
ing tbe various lady birds, like the veda
lia, rblzobins, etc., that insist witb tbeir
aotive lives in keeping op, despite all
detractions, the reputations of Hon. El
wood Cooper, Albert Koebsle, Alex Craw.
Secretary Lelong, Senator Buck, Mr.
Snow and all those who have been active
in sending out tbese useful little scale
killers. There are several interesting
side shows in tnis wsr, as Hilgard's ex
traordinary treatment of Professor Wood
bridge, Po. D., a distinguished agricul
tural chemist, aud Heintz's attempt
against the popular and public spirited
Mr. Alles. All of these little things give
a zest to lif?, if not spur to knowledge.
With all its progressiveness and its as
sumption of metropolitan airs, there are
some things essential to a live business
metropolis that Los Anegles lacks and
has lacked too long. One of them the
Herald adverted to'at length some time
since,, and tbat is a place wbere tbe evi
dences of incorporated capital may be
listed, quoted, bought and sold, a stock
and bond exchange.
This is an era of corporations The in
dressed and demands of hu
manity bas made necessary tbe carrying
on of enterprises intended to satisfy
those demands on a scale far bayond tho
financial measure of tne single individ
ual. Hence many men of means and
credit join together lor the purposes of
development , production, manufacture
and distribution. They pool their cap
ital and credit in the form of the corpor
ation and tbeir individual interests in
tbe latter aro represented by issues of
stock, while tbe indebtedness of the cor
poration that has gone beyond its own
casb resources is frequently represented
by bonds of some sort.
The corporation idea bas been instru
mental in calling into fields of ussful ac
tivity immense quantities of capital tbat
would have remained idle and unproduc
But the success of tbe corporation as a
factor in tbe world of trade and produc
tion is largely dependent on tbe ease and
economy with wbich its stocks and bonds
may be introduced to the investing ele
ment. The degree in wbich its issues are
available in a selling sense often marks
the degree of its achievement in its cho
sen field.
It is as a medium of introduction and
a register of market value that the stock
and bond exchange plays its part and
becomes in time in every real active busi
ness community second only in import
ance to the corporations themselves.
Los Angeles as a focusing point for a
large part of the wealth of larger or older
communities and tho natural capital ot a
vast region ricn in resources, has become
the birth of hundreds of corporations in
the last few years. Of course a multitude
of them are blush unseen and
will never„earn as much as tee cost of
gettinc an existence. On the other hand,
however, many are intimately connected
witb or responsible for the great enter
prises tbat have had to do with tbe
building up of Southern California, and
everything or anything that will directly
or indirectly facilitate their progress by
making easy the d.sjoial of their stocks
and bonds will promote the general wel
fare of tbe whole southern section.
There are dozens of corporations whose
stocks and bonds are as sound and safe
as investmeuts as any to be found in the
west, and yet the popular ignorance re
garding the real value of the securities is
such that the holder of some of them
would find them practically worthless
for purposes of immediate or speedy re
alization. The very fear of tbe unavail
ability of corporation paper bas kept
large sums of capital out of mob invest
ments and thus indirectly retarded devel
opment and production. The reputable
resident corporations of Southern Califor
nia can ill affofd to longer neglect the
establishment of an institution which
life, standing and character to their now
comparatively unknown, and too often
discredited, stock and bond issuer.
The editor of the Healdsburg Enter
prise addresses bimself to the advocacy
of free silver in tbe following trencbunt
paragraph suggestive of delinquent sub
scribers: "Tbe people can have free
coinage of silver if they want it. In this
country, where the people rule, it's their
own fault if they're hoodwinked into be
lieving there is plenty of money, when
they have'n't had a dollar for months."

Westminster Hotel Day
Those fortunate people who dine at the
Tumverein hall on October 15th, the sec
ond day of the orphan's fair, will not
alone aid tbe good cause, but will par
take of the many good things, including
the famous Westminster hotel salad, to
be donated tbat day by those clever and
generous business men. Messrs. Potter
and Johnson, proprietors of the hotel.
These gentlemen have volunteered to fur
nish a "smoKing hot" repast by their
celebrated chef, such as lias given the
Hotel Westminster world-wide fame.
BY W. A. R.
Just as tbe performance closed at the
Burbank last night, the gentleman in
front of me discovered that he had been
sitting upon a hat all evening.
"Now, now, that is really too bad, too
bad! I'm airaid, I've spoiled your h at!"
he exclaimed nervously, as he handed
the dilapidated looking Christie to his
neighbor amid a roar of laughter from
those who saw it. "I beg a thousand
pardons, sir, but I never not—"
"No, no; you never noticed," shouted
number two. "I never saw the like.
That was a good new bat, sir, only a few
days ago. It's a strange thing some
people can't open tbeir eyes. You just
seem to come to tbe theater with the
avowed intention of sitting on some
body's hat. You'll jit on your own hat
some day yet, sir, and then you'll know
how it goes. I'll—I'll—"
"Very sorry, sir, but it hadn't ought
to heen there, you know," replied num
ber one in a somewhat injured tone.
There's a place for —"
"(lee! this is your own hat,boas," ssid
number two. it's not mine, anyway
Here's mine all right," and the crowd
was convulsed with laughter as be banded
the bat back to number one.
"I—l thought," stammered number
"Yes, you thought ihere was a place
for hats somewhere else besides on the
chair, didn't you?" laughed number two.
"But this is really not my hat," said
number one,excitedly,as he grojei about
under his chair, nnd in a moment we
were actually surprised to see him bring
out his hat from its place of refuge.nmid
another roar of laughter from the crowd,
while the wreck still remained without
an owner.
All at once a horrid thought dawned
upon me. I immediately stopped laugh
ing. I began to look for my bat. I
looked all around. A cold chill crept
over me. It was my hat he bad sat
An Insane riaa on Ternu ot Intimacy With
Hla Satanic riajesty
Yesterday afternoon a man who gave
his name as H. Delecamillerie, and said
tbat be lived at No. 248 Walnut street,
callea at the district attorney's otiice to
see what lie could do about having his
wife locked up, as bo said she was pos
sessed of tbe devil. The fellow talked in
a rambling sort of way about how be was
imposed upon by his wife, who he said
was in league witb the devil, and in
stigated his children to do tba same. Ho
frankly confessed tbat he had frequently
seen the devil hircelf, but as he was a
gooil man his Satanic majesty did not
bother him. Miss Ursula Donnel, tbe
stenographer in the ottice, to whom the
man maae his complaint, saw that he
was insane and notified Under Sheriff
Clements, who locked him up in tbe
county jail.
Daniel Webster cigars are always in
demand because they ate choice goods.
When you smoke a 10-cent cigar suppose
you try a Daniel Webster.
Many people have heard of tbe Marie
Antoinette cigar. There's no better sold.
When you can buy Marie Antoinette
cigars for 10 cents, why will yon smoke
Marie Antoinette was famous in history.
The 10-cent cigar named for her is just
as famous now.
There are many cheap cigars in the
worid, hut there is only one best one that
carries the world's record for the biggest
sales, and the name is tbe Grand Re
public cigar. Costs a nickel and pleases
tbe smoker every time.
If you should place all tbe Grand Re
public cigars that have been sold end to
end, they would reach six times from
New York to London, six times from
Los Angeles to Washington, and four
tiroes from San Francisco to Hongaong
—20,000 miles of tbem.
It would take a railroad train running
fifty miles an hour sixteen days and six
teen hours to psss a line of all the Orand
Republic cigars end to end tbat have been
sold. There's a reason why so many of
tbem are smoced. It is not the price
alone, but It is the superior quality of
the cigar itself.
The Grand Repulbiu cigar satisfies
smokers, leads ibe trade and makes
friends wherever it goes; that's some of
the reasons why over 300,000,000 of them
have been sold, and it is the reason why
tbeir sale is steadily growing.
It's just like finding money to buy
Grand Republic cigars for 5 cents; save tbe
bands, take tbem to Adelsdorfer &
Brandenstein, 232 North Los Angeles
street, and get one ot tbe money prizes
amounting to $70.
Well-bred men smoke Grand Republic
cigar, and nobody knows tbe difference
because they are well made from long
Havana filler and Sumatra wr: pier and
give a pleasant odor.
You can bed out all about tie prizes
for tbe biggest number of bant a presented
from Grand Republio cigars by calling on
any cigar dealer or A. Schwamm, 232
North Los Angeles street.
Tbe Daniel Webster cigar is a good
straight amoke, and costs but W cents.

Tbe woman's guild of St. Paul's
church gave one of their roost successful
and delightful entertainments last nictt
in the parish hall of tne church. Tbe
hall was tastefully decorated for the oc
casion wilh peppers, asparagus, ferns,
and a profusion of flowers. Mrs. Lvtler
bad kindly loaned her Indian exhibits
and those were displayed on the stage in
artistic confusion, and when the gentle
little lady stood admist her treasures and
told some interesting things of India,
the picture presented was a very pleasing
one. The subject cbosen was the super
stitions of the natives of India. Mrs.
Lytior's remarks are all full of interest
and her audience never waver in their
interest. There were several delightful
vocal and instrumental selections during
the evening. Mr. Marion Wlgmore sang
As These. A quartette consisting of Mrs.
iiempton and Mrs. Modini-Wood, Mr.
Wood and Dr. Sernler, gave much pleas
ure. A cornet solo by Mr. Middlesman
and the orchestra composed of Mrs, John
Grey, Madeline and Lewis Angeilotti and
Mrs. Hebermann and a recitation by Miss

that was of more than usual merit. Too
much praise can not he betsowed on Miss
Willis in her very finished and artistic
manner of reciting. She has a sweet,
sympathetic voice and a most refreshing
and unaffected way of capturing her list

tho same points the respective rates were
abovo these figures.
H Now the Union Pacnic has given notice
that it will equalize the rates and mnke
those from the Missouri river the same

Southern California Will Have No Represen
tation There
Mr. G. W. Edelsten, editor of the Bui
linn, a journal devoted to mining inter
ests, is very indignant at the inaction of
the chamber of commerce on his proposal
to have that body appoint a delegate at
large to the state mining convention, to
be held in Sun Francisco on the 14th.
Mr. Edelston's idea was to have the
chamber of commerce name the delegate,
and then to secure for this delegute cre
dentials as representing all of the South
ern California counties where mining
"The chamber has postponed action
until now it is too late for Southern Cali
fornia to have any representation at tbe
convention," said Mr. Edelston last
night, "and we have here some of the
best mines in the state, and at Ogilby
have the biggest stamp mill on tbe coast
Thd industry is an immense and grow
ing one, but I have not ocen able despite
constant effort to get the committee on
mining, to whom the matter was re
ferred, to act. It appears to me that a
great injustice has been done the mining
interest by this oversight."
