SATURDAY, MARCH ag. 1896.
The Herald is in receipt of information
relative to the action of the house commit
tee on rivers and harbors that unfortu
nately justifies the belief that So:i hern
California has again suffered from decep
tion, and possibly treachery, in the matter
at a deep sea harbor appropriation. It
looks«s though the resourceful and versa
tile Mr. Huntington has once more ob
structed the will of the people of this sec
tion by securing an appropriation for a
harbor not desired by thera and neces
sarily at the expense of the harbor for
which they have expressed a well nigh
unanimous preference. The harbor de
sired by the people of Southern California
ia the one favored repeatedly by the gov
ernment boards of engineers and by every
other intelligent and disinterested person
who has given the subject the intelligent
study necessary—San Pedro. And any at
tempt to divert public money to the im
provement of another that is the choice
only of Huntington and his bought talent
should meet with a remonstrance from this
section that will be heard loudly and effect
ively in the districts of the congressmen
tbat are parties to the deal. The Herald
will tomorrow devote some special atten
tion to this subject of absorbing importance
to Southern California.
'Tib said that all roads lead to Rome,
but General Booth of the Salvation army
seems to be convinced that but one road
leads to beaven, and tbat by London.
Bill McKinlf.t's chatter about the
country's "untarnished honor" betrays an
Ignorance of recent history, a disposition
to ignore facts, or an inability to recognize
a tarnished thing when he sees it. With
the record of the attempted steal of the
Hawaiian Islands by President Harrison's
administration staring us in the face, it is
silly to talk about tbe country's untar
nished honor.
The censure of Ambassador Bayard by
tbe house that is playing at legislation
brings to mind the historical fact that
President Jackson was once censured more
harshly by a whig majority in tbe senate.
Old Hickory survived, being re-elected
after the vote of censure; the Democratic
party lived, flourished and has trampled
on its enemies many times since, and the
Whig party flickered out in very much the
same way that its lineal descendant, the
Republican, will go in a few years.
The rebuke administered by the indig
nant people of Fresno to the meandering
evangelist. Rev. I. T. Johnson, for his reck
less repetition of the baseless rumors af
fecting the girls of that city, was well de
served. The people are to be commended
for the moderation they displayed in the
matter. The Rev. Johnson is typical of a
class of evangelists, altogether too numer
ous, who are prone to indulge in reckless
allegations regarding the habits and char
acter of people for the purpose of achiev
ing the notoriety on which they expect to
thrive. The clerical demagogue is as
abominable and dangerous as the one of
political variety. Some communities
would have sent the pulpit disseminator of
slander away looking like a rooster that
had bathed in a tub of tar before the feath
ars grew.
The halo of harmony does not seem to
make glorious the Republican party of the
lone Star state. In fact, the party of God
and morality, the party that is supposed to
have canned, sacked or barreled all the
patriotism, wisdom and decency the coun
try ever possessed, just went to work in its
convention held in Austin, Texas, Thurs
day, and clawed and scraped and
pulled wool and chewed ears and
slung revolvers around, like any
ordinary aggregation of ruffians loaded
with tarantula cure. The attempt
mt the McKinleyites to carry the conven
tion with blows when they could not do so
with votes was almost as creditable as the
purchase of some of the "other southern
delegations on the cattle basis with the fat
fresh from the pan in the protective tariff
strongholds. Mac should take the "un
tarnished honor" of his parly for the text
of his next bloviating oration.
TWO NEEDED EXCHANGES
This city has an oil exchange and it is
doing an immense amount of good work
for its members and the industry it repre
sents. Two more exchanges are needed,
stud have been for a long time, and the
wonder is that in so live and progressive a
place as Los Angeles, they have not mate
rialised before this. One is a grain and
produce and the other a real estate, stock
and bond exchange. The grain and pro
duce area tributary to Los Angeles em
braces tens of thousands of acres, and the
annual value of its productions amounts to
hundreds of thousands of dollars. A large
and Increasing number of people are inter
ested, in Los Angeles and vicinity, either as
brokers, dealers, speculators and heavy
consumers, in the rise and fall of the
prices of these products and in tha char
acter and quantity of the crops. It cer
tainly seems as though a grain and pro
duce exchange would be popular and well
sustained. The need of a real estate,
stock and bond exchange has been fre
quently adverted to in Tin Hfrai.d, and
the reasons hardly call for recapitulation
now. It ia sufficient to say that, such an
institution could bring around a more sys
tematic and economical method of
handling real estate than prevails at pres
ent, with results far more satisfactory to
buyers, sellers and agents than those now
obtainable; and that the stocks and bonds
of the multitude of corporations doing
business or having headquarters in South
ern California could find a list
ing place which would in time
place them in their true light before
the public, thus enabling the investor to
deal intelligently with them. As it
is now there is no definite authority on the
value of local stocks and bonds, and an
estimate of tneir respective values must be
based on street corner gossip and private
information, neither of which is always re
liable. There is here an abundance of
capital that would be invested in the shares
and securities of Southern California cor
porations, and thus be used in important
developing enterprises, if the values of
these shares and securities were publicly
fixed as would be done through an ex
change in which they were openly bought
and sold.
AFRAID OF CARLISLE
The Chicago Times-Herald ia supposed
to be independent politically, but Mr.
Kohlsaat, its owner, is a pronounced and
active Republican, and it is quite apparent
from the uniformity with which the paper's
editorial support is given to ideas and
measures that bear a Republican trade
mark, that its independence is not of the
kind that will keep it strictly in the
"middle of the road." It is independent
with a strong Republican accent.
The Republican sympathy of the Times-
Herald is apparent in the concern with
which it views the Republican situation.
Its fear that the party of profession and
privilege may not do just exactly the right
thing in the building of a platform or the
nomination of a presidential candidate, is
marked. It is particularly solicitous
about the adoption by the St. Louis
convention of a financial plank that will
declare unequivocally for sound money
and make no concessions to free silverism,
In the possibility of John G. Carlisle being
the Democratic presidential candidate it
scents danger for the Republican party,
especially if the latter trifles with the
money issue. It says:
John Griffin Carlisle is announced as the
residuary legatee of the adnrinistration in
the presidential contest of 1806. He is to
be the Moses to lead Democracy into a
new promised land, and his task will be
something more than that of the great
Hebrew law-giver when he led the children
of Israel through the desert.
Mr. Carlisle would prove a formidable
candidate.
He was a southern Union man in the
days of secession, and after more than a
generation since the civil war his candi
dacy would excite but little opposition in
the north on the score that he is a southern
man, while it would win him immense sup
port in the south. At all events, he would
make the border states carried by the Re
publicans in the last elections hopeful bat
tle ground for the Democracy.
His chances in New York would cer
tainly be equal to those of any other Dem
ocrat, and make New York fair lighting
ground, particularly if the tit. Louis con
vention should equivocate with the money
question. As for Indiana, all the Demo
crats would have to do would be to add
Gov.Matthew s to the ticket and there agaio
would be fair fighting ground for them.
*»*•»»•
Carlisle's avowed candidacy is full of in
struction to those who will lead in influ
ence at the St. Louis convention.
Regarding the proposed scheme—logical
enough in its way—to combine the free
silverites and the tariffitos, the New York
Journal makes tne following pertinent
ob-ervation:
If the Impending unholy alliance be
tween high tariff and frse silver is ever
consummated, the Democratic campaign
managers need not spend a cent on educa
tional literature or any other legitimate
means of vote-getting next summer. The
votes will tumble over themselves in their
anxiety to be recorded for a Democratic
president.
AT THE THEATERS
Orphf.lm—At the matinees today and
tomorrow at the Orpheum the full bill will
be presented, with some extra musical
attractions. The Kossleys Irish comedians,
the Miltons, the great horizontal bar duo;
the Broa. Dianta, musical comedians;
('lias. B. Ward, the original Bowery Boy;
Les de Fillipi Parisian dancers, the An
dersons' colored sketch team antl the
great Athos family in their wonderful ac
robatic feats will all appear. This makes
one of the strongest programs ever pre
sented. The funny Miltons in their clever
work on the horrizontal bar, the Les de
Fillipi and the Athos family will only be
seen once after the matinee tomorrow.
Seldom does one have an opportunity to
see a team like the Fillipis in their clever
and unique dances and Chas. B. Ward in his
Bowery songs and the Andersons iv their
plantation dances, are each and every one
well worth seeing. They make up a show
by themselves, but as the Orpheum is
never restricted in its attractions, the
other numbers on the bill are .equally
pleasing.
* T*
The Burbask.—Last night at the Bur
bank the public snowed its appreciation
by packing this spacious house to its ut
most capacity. The occasion was the pro
duction of a grand double bill, consisting
of The Bohemian Girl and The Charity
Girls. The latter piece is a charming little
oporetta with humorous scenes, which
caused hearty laughter. The musical gems
were received with rapturous applause.
Miss Atkinson's charming rendering of
Tell Me if You Love Me was a feature, and
Mr. Carleton's splendid rendition of Ben
Bolt was a pronounced succes-j. This after
noon The Lily of Killarney is the attraction,
and it will receive its last presentation this
evening. Tomorrow evening will be the
farewell performance of the Carletons and
a grand double bill will he given, which in
cludes The Charity Girls and Fra-Diavolo.
A Clever Capture
A clever capture was made of a bicycle
thief last night, and inside of six hours
after the loss of the wheel it had been re
turned to its owner and the thief was be
hind the bars. Bert Keed of San Diego
left his bicycle in front of Melsted'u res
taurant while he ate, and it disap
peared. Detectives Steele and Robnins
were at once notified and at 1 oclock this
morning captured Billy Cook in his room
on upper Main slreot. Cook has been
working for the Broadway Transfer com
pany, but quit a week ago. He confessed
to taking the wheel, and told where he had
hid it in a barn on Leroy street. He will
probably plead guilty iv court.
In a talk about western hospitality the
other day Senator Warren of Wyoming
said: "Why, I would regard it as a per
sonal insult if I went to a house on any
ranch and found the door locked. The
first impulse of the average western man
on such an occasion would be to break the
door down."
The jury in the White-Thompson, Raker
damage case last evening returned a ver
dict for plaintiff, awarding him 15 dam
ages.
LOS ANGEIiES HBRAXiD: SATTTRDAY MOKNTNGr, MARCH 28, 1896.
J. D. REYMERT
A Brlcl Sketch el ■ Notable Citizen's
Ufa
Yesterday afternoon at Alharebra oc
curred the funeral of Judge J. D. Hey inert,
and the obeequiea were attended by many
of the members of the bar from this city.
Judge Key ncr t was 74 years of age at the
time of his death, arid had a varied and
interesting history. The cause of his
demise was Bright** disease, from which
he had long suffered, but he was
able within ten minutes bofore his
death to walk unassisted to the window
and take a last look out upon the world.
A son now residing in Florence, Aril., and
a married daughter in New York city are
left to mourn his lots. The judge died in
testate, but leaves a small fortune mostly
invested in nil ranch home at Alhamhta
and in lots in Los Angeles. He also
owned a majority of the famous Silver
King mine in Arizona, but this it is under
stood he lately deeded lo his son, who is
now managing the property.
Judge James de Noon Key inert was born
in Norway in 18?'-' and claimed a descent
from ancient lineage. He was a second
cousin of the king of Norway and could
trace his ancestry to King Canute of Den
mark. When still a young man he went to
Wales, where he engaged in copper mining
and where he also acquired the knowledge
of minerals that made him rich in later
years. He studied law at the school of the
TJuiversity of Edinburgh, and graduated
from there with honors.
Emigrating to this country he landed at
New York, but soon struck out west and
settled at Waukesha, Wisconsin, which
was then a territory. Here he first taught
school and later practiced his profession of
the law. When statehood was acquired in
1847, Judge Key-inert was a prominent
member of the constitutional convention
and is mentioned in Wisconsin history as
one of the fathers of the state. He then
filled for some lime the office of registrar
of the land office at Milwaukee. Vive
terras in the cssemhly and three in the
senate of his adopted state were served,
and in 1800 he was a candidate on the
Douglass Democratic ticket for member of
congress, but was defeated.
At the outbreak of the civil war he re
turned to New York and resumed the prac
tice of law. It is stated that he had at that
time a practice worth $50,000 a year. One
term as judge of the circuit court of ap
peals was served when, bis health failing,
lie emigrated to Chile in 1877. Here he
engaged in mining and farming, but finally
came to Isan Francisco in 1884. Once
more he took up law, and soon had.'a lucra
tive practice. His lungs troubled him,
however, and he went to Arizona and en
gaged in mining and prospecting.
Judge Reymert was the discoverer and
locator of the Silver King lode, which has
since made him rich and become famous
as one of the richest mines in the terri
tory.
In 1889 he left his son in charge of the
mine, and coming to Los Angeles with
$100,000 sought investments. These hs
fountl in his Alhambra home, which is one
of the finest places in the valley and
in city real estate. Here he has since re
sided, meantime again resuming his pro
fession. The judge was a fine mineralo
gist, and leaves one of the most complete
collections of minerals that is in existence.
Dp to his death his mind was clear, and be
leaves a reputation as a noble-hearted
gentleman, an astute lawyer and a kind
father.

POLITICAL POINTERS
New York, March 27. —A special to the
World from Boston says: Congressman A.
S. Berry of Kentucky, who is a member of
the congressional delegation which is in
specting Boston harbor, said last night:
"I can say very positively that President
Cleveland is not in the race at all. I have
good reason to know that when the time
comes he will announce that fact. In fact,
a paper of such nature was prepared by
him some time ago. but at the request of
tbe national committee, who felt that was
not tbe most opportune time for it to be

ton of San Krancisco wa* solved yesterday
by the discovery of his body floating in the
bay. He undoubtedly committed suicide.
Stockton's rain for the present storm

At Stockton, yesterday, W. S. Mont
gomery, a farmer living about a inilo from
Lockford, cut the levee of the Mokelumne

FARMER AND FRUITGROWER
Tf the ranchers in the vicinity of San
j Bernardino will plant sugar beets there is
! no doubt but that th? Southern Pacillc will
' make a rate of 50 cents per ton from San
i Bernardino to Chino. l ast fall when an
i experimental carloatl was shipped, over $ I
' a ton was paid in freight, owing to the fact
I that tlte Southern California Motor road
! ilid *-ot at that lime belong to the Southern
! Pacific, and its freight rate bstween here
| and Coiton wai liO cents a ton. It is
I authoritively stated that the Southern Pa
cific, is ready at any time toco-operate
i with the farmers ii?re to make San Hernar
! dino a beet growing center, and it will im*
• doubtedly make a rate of 50 cents a ton
from the siding back of tho Motor depot
to tho factory in Chino. —[San Bernardino
Sun.
The California fruit grower has con
quered the eastern markets for ripe fresh
fruit, and has made a successful assault
\op the Lcndoii market, 6000 miles away.
And while doing this he is compelled to
use, not ordinary freight cars, but the
heaviest refrigerators, wno3e dead weight
to be hauled is something double that of
the paying freight whicli ihey carry, and
lliesa heavy cars lor the most part have to
;be hauled back empty for the wnole long
jdi dance. It is probable that between luly
1, 1803, and July 1, 1800, we shall have
: ohipped from tola state to eastern markets
Jas many as 1 5,000 carloads of fresh fruit,
Upon which ther.3 will be paid for freight
ale and refrigeration something like $5,
--5110,000, a id which will yield to the grow
er about an etpial amount. Fifteen ihou
smd cars at 1 cent a pound would amount
jto and at'_' cents a pounds, to
$7,J00,000. The probabilities are that
tlte amount reali.ed is between the two,
say, 15,000,000. Thecost of nulling 15,000
cars of fruit would be 7 per cent on $10,
--500,000, for commission is piiid by the
grower upon tiie freight as well as upon
tiie fruit, aud would amount to $7:15,000.
Tiie Cuban sugar crop will be about S7| a '
per cent short, which means a shortage of
nearly 000,000 tons. That is about half
the united States importation of sugar,
and we have heretofore depended mainly
for our supply on Cuba. We shall probably
make up our supply from a variety of
sources; German beet sugar and Haytian,
Porto Kican, Hawaiian and Manilla cane
sugar will be in active demand. There
woultl be a market for all the beet sugar
we could make, but the industry cannot
he developed in a season.—San Jose Her
ald.
Tulare county, says the Register, will
ship 1500 carloads of dried fruit the com
ing year, nnd the fact leads that journal to
suggest the manufacture of jams, fruit but
ters and marmalades as a means of tempt
ing the sale of orchard products. It is a
wonder that those journals that make a
specialty of telling the worst that can be
said regarding the state do not make this
the text to show up the danger of over
production.
How He Served the Summons
For the past twenty years a little, gray
' haired old man has been hanging about
! lawyers' offices in the big downtown build
i ings. The man has a reputation for being
' one of the most expert process-servers in
i this city. Last week he was assigned to
■ serve a summons on a Harlem woman who
1 was wanted in a lawsuit, but who did not
I want to appear. A half-dozen men had
! tried the task, hut tbe woman had evaded
j them. The old man took a milliner's box
antl placetl the summons in it, together
' with some old newspapers. Then he went
to the woman's house. "A package for
Mrs. 5.," he told the servant. "I'll take
it,''said the servant. "But she must per
sonally sign a receipt," said the old man.
Mrs, S. came down stairs iv a hurry, per
haps thinking her husband had surprised
her with a new bonnet. She hastily opened
the box. Then she saw the summons be
fore her eyes. "Oh, you horrid man!" she
Baid, half tearfully, to the old process
server, who had awaited developments.
Then she slammed the door in his face.
Of course she obeyed the summons.—New
York Evening World.
Edison Photographs the Brain
Thomas A. Edison returned from the
funeral of his father in the west last
Thursday < and at once took up hisX ray ex
periments where he had dropped them.
He made the first of his long promised ex
periments in photographing a human head
on Saturday night, and, while the result
was not a complete success, yet it showed
some results. John Wrexford, an em
ployee of the laboratory, was chosen as
tho subject. The exposure was an hour
and twenty minutes, and when tho plate
was developed some remarkable results
were found. A clearly denned radio
graph was obtainetl of the head, showing
its conformation, the position of the ears
and the thinness of the hair in spots. In
tho center of the plate, near the spots
where the eyes were, were found two faint
indications that at this point the penetra
tion of the rays was greater than else
where. One difficulty was shown, that of
the impossibility of keeping the subject
still, absolutely, for so long an exposure.—
