It's very easy to add 25 per cent to your
Income simply by the exercise of a little
headwork in buying. Desmond's stock of
hats and men's furnishings is full of points
for money savers and dollar-fattening bar
trains. H'h a large dollar that's worth
$1.25, but your dollars are worth that at
Desmond's store in the Bryson block.
Bring 'em along today and secure these
margins for yourself. 50c suspenders for
. 23c, 75c and $i ; neckwear for 50c to $1;
soft and stiff hats for $1.50 and $2, and
stacks of other equall;. big drives.
You take a big risk in buying a hat any
where and at Imp-: izard. Many persons
, can't distinguish a good hat from a poor
one. A cheap imitation looks the sa.ne as
a genuine article. It's only after a lew
days' wear that the difference is discov
ered. Poor bats would be dear at quarter
tbe price of good ones, but they coet much
more than that. Compared with them
Desmond's magnificent derbys and fedoras
would be cheap at double their price.
When in need of anything in the line of
shirts, hosiery, collars, cuffs, neckwear,
etc., etc., also make a bee line for Des
mond's, 141 South Spring street, and be
pleased, happy and satisfied.

As an indication of the large number of
people who will be in Los Angeles to wit
ness the Fiesta, the executive committee
has received a request lor at least 200
seats on the tribunes from San Francisco.
The official program is now in the hands
of the binder and will be placed on sale
for the first time at the subscribers' sale of
seats on Monday next. The cover is
beautifully designed in five colors and
represents the figure of a handsome wo
man, picking California flowers, with a
view of the Mission in the background, lt
is a work of great literary and artistic
merit, containing the views of the differ- I
ent floats, which are masterpieces of art
and engraver's skill. The brortiure car- j
ries with it tbe evidences of the high plane
that the Fiesta has attained, and it will be
preserved as a handsome souvenir of the
great carnival, lt contains no advertise
ments and will find a ready sale.
The construction of the tribunes at Hope
and Seventh streets is completed, and thsy
have been built of heavy timbers and in
the most substantial manner by Eisen tic
Hunt. The seats will be comfortable and
have been placed in such a way that it 1
will not be necessary to climb a long dis- !
tance for those who obtain their seats on
the back rows. The tribunes have been 1
thoroughly inspected and pronounced per
fectly safe, tn guard against accidents, j
They will be handsomely decorated.
The demand for seats has been enor
mous, but no tickets will be furnished until
Monday morning, when the subscribers' '
sale opens at blanchard & Fitzgerald's
music store. Those who apolv for ticket* I
will find also a clean diagram from which !
to choose, and no fa oritiam will be shown
to anybody. No seats have been reserved,
and the subscriber who presents himself
first will have no difficulty in obtaining the
seats he may want.
The advance sale of tickets to the queen's
ball is proving highly satisfactory, and that

dance, that they will perform before her
maje ly. the queen. Tickets may be pro

BOTANIC MEDICAL INSTITUTE
Informal Opening ot the Parlor* In the New
Oordon Block
In response to unique invitations sent
out by Manager H. C. Ross, a large num
ber of guests attended the inlormal open
ing of the new Botanic Medical institute
in its rooms in the Gordon block. No. 200' 2
South Broadway,last evening. Tlie insti
tute has parlors 12, 13, 14, 15 and 22 on
the second floor of this handsome building,
and will be the largest and best equipped
medical institute in California. The
rooms last evening were tastefully
decorated,and tbe members of the institute
were in attendance to welcome tlie
guests. Dr. George C. Somers is the
physician in charge of the medical de
partment of the institute, while Dr. S. Xs.
Fretwell, the eminent specialist, is the
sight diagnostician and public lecturer.
Eminent specialists will be in attendance
as occassion requires. H. C. Ross, late
partner and manager Dr. A.J. Shores &
Co., is the manager of the new institute,
which fact ia in itself a guarantee of fair
dealing ajid good faith. As has been
stated, this institdte has all the most im
proved facilities for the treatment and
cure of catarrh and chronic diseases, and
will doubtless prove a boon to the suffer
ing and afflicted in southern California.
The affair last evening was purely of an
informal character. Light refreshments
were served in one of the parlors, special
attention being paid to the liquids, a spe
cial feature being a la'-ge bowl of punch
brewed by the genial King, of Bob Kern's
Wellington. The festivities continued un
til about midnight, when the company
broke up.
The institute Will open its doors for reg
ular business Monday morning.

IRISH CONCERT
At Turnvcreln Hall Under the Auspices ol
the Mercy Home Pair
The attractions of the Mercy Home fair
had tbe noted addition last evening of a
fine concert that from beginning to end
bore out in speeches, music and song tbe
accepted traditions that the soul of quick
wit, sly drollery and the incongruous mix
ture of the pathetic and the comic orig
inated solely in the Isle of St. Patrick.
The hall was filled to the doors and many
looked down from tlie galleries. On the
platform were D. M. McGarry,W. A. Kyan,
Martin C. Marsh. James Cunningham, P.
Hartnett and Father Barron. After an
overture, Echoes from Ireland, by Arend's
orchestra, the chairman, D. M. He-
Garry, opened the concert with
a. speech, addressed particularly to
the true - hearted sons of that
country, first not only in adversity, but
first in generosity and first to respond to
every call of charity.
W. A. Ryan was then formally intro
duced and made a finished address rela
tive to the disinterested work of the good
Sisters of charity, who, he said, were a
link m that chain of benevolence that en
riched the earth, challenged the admiration
of the world, and added an undimmed
lustre to the Catholic church. He also
sketched the work of tho particular charity
for which the fair is held- - the care of the
old and feeble. While the Mercy Home
gives a home to the orphan and to the
friendless young worn • i confronted with
the problem of life, its particular object, he
explained, ia the protection of tbe agtd.
LOS AXGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORXIXG, APRIL 11. 1896.
Although the necessities of little children
appealed perhaps most readily to the sym
pattiies of all. Mr. Ryan hoped the needs of
the poor and helpless in the declining years
of life would not be disregarded, and that
tho coffers of the good sisters would be
bountifully filled by the warm-hearted sons
of Ireland.
Mrs. Collette sang a soprano solo, li.il
larney; Mr. F. E. Colver a baritone solo,
Kathleen Mavourneen; Miss Lillie Scan
lon a contralto solo, Come Back to Erin,
Mr. A. M. Thornton a ballad entitM
O'Donnell a 800, all of which merited
hearty applause. Demonstrative demands
for encores attended tho conclusion of
every song and In every instance was
i gracefully complied with.
] Special selections of nine numbers for
> the occasion by Arend's orchestra followed
jto the appreciation of the large audience,
i Among them were Ta-ra-rum (Arend),
l Irish Airs (Norton), Call Me Thine Own.
j from Le Clair (Halevy), Ma Angelina, by
request, and A Trip to Great Britain, to
which descriptive characteristics were
added by Mr. Arend.
Numerous donations are still pouring in
to aid the work of the fair. The dining
■ room yesterday received the following sub
; stantial additions: Oyster pattesby Edin
i ger, lobster salad from Jerry Illicit, the
j fish and chowder by Mrs. Curtis of the
Abbey on Hill street, large cakes from Mrs.
Child* and Mrs. Ponet, a saddle of mut
ton adorned with a typical saddle artis
tically embellished with frost :ig and a
shoulder of lamb taking the form of a
large white swan, were the generous gift
of Mr. M. T. Kyan of the Norma market,
j Mr. Schallert has been furnishing tlie
colfee.
Noteworthy additions have also been
made to the fancy booths, all of which
will fall by chance at the close of the fair
to the fortunate winner.
IN THE POLICE COURTS
Nolan Dlschsrged-Ile Used His Knife In
Self-Defense
j Will Nolan, the truckman who cut his
I ex-employer, Adolf Zuter, with a pocket
j knife some days ago, was yesterday exam
i ined in Justice Morrison's court and the
charge of assault to murder against him
dismissed, lt was shown by the testimony
that Zuter was the aggressor in the fight
and that whatever was done by Nolan was
in self-defense. Zuter is a large and heavy
: man. while Nolan is much smaller and
j lighter. The prisoner's wife and twin ba
| hies were in court, and upon Nolan's dis
i missal the happy quartet left the conrt
! room with lightened hearts. Nolan is a
' hard working man and stated that he did
i not intend to injure Zuter, but had the
1 knife in his hand cutting a piece of tobacco
' when attacked, and struck back without
J realizing that he was stabbing Zuter. The
I latter is rapidly recovering from his
. wounds, which were of superficial nature,
: the knife not being large enough to be dan
[ gerous.
Attorney M. V. Biscailuz was also up be
i fore the same court for sentence on con
! viction of embezzlement. Justice Morris
son fined him $100 or one hundred days
!iu the city jail. From this decision a no
tice of appeal to the superior court was
< given and Biscailuz released upon $250
bonds pending the final settlement of the
matter.
, The embezzlement charge against 11. H.
Worrell was taken up and witnesses on
either side heard. Worrell was agent for
a firm which sold curtains, clocks, rugs
and house furnishings on the installment
plan. It was alleged that Worrell would
take out a big load of goods and return a
batch of contracts for their sale, all, or
nearly all, of which were bogus, Worrell
having disposed of the s.utT m pawn shops
and pocketed the proceeds. He was
charged witli felony embezzel'-ment, but
upon the conclusion of the examination
Judge Owens took the matter under ad
visement, there being some doubt as to
whether this charge could be sustained,
or whether tbe offense was simply a mis
demeanor embezzlement. Judgment will
be rendered this afternoon at 2 oclnck.
John Geuzelis, the Italian candy boy
who created a disturbance in the Orpheum
theater and used most vile aud profane
! language, was found guilty of disturbing
the peace and today was Bet for sentence.
Geuzelis is a hardened little tough, who,
when he sustains a fancied slight or in
jury, proceeds to belabor the offender
with his tongue, regardless of the presence
of ladies or others, -lames McDonald, ac
cused of drunkenness, did not appear for
trial and his bail of $5 waa declared for-
I feited.
An old offender named James McDer
! mott was allotted 150 days in jail for
vagrancy, he having been before the courts
time and again on various charges. Mc-
Dermott will do his five months on the
chain gang greatly against his will. Geo.
Waugh, a begging vagrant, will be tried
today at 10 oclock. H. T. Hollingsworth
had three cases of violating the health
ordinance continued until this afternoon
at 2 oclock for hearing. G. Aladino, for
selling liquor on Sunday, had April 16 set
for trial. Aladi'io is out on bond.
Four Chinamen appeared on various
charges as follows: Ah Jim violated the
rity ordinance by selling opium without a
license. The prosecuting witness could not
lie found yesterday, having left the city, so
Jim was dismissed from custody. Ah
Lucy. the crazy tea peddler, who frightened
\ several women on the East Side, was also
allowed to go, he being merely foolish and
Irrinless. Gun Lin, who assaulted Officer
Lennon when the latter was raiding a tan
, game, will be tried for battery today,
i Charlie Wing had trial for disturbing the
peace Bet for the 15th. Charlie used foul
i language and quarreled on the street.
A Theosophlst Arrives
Mr. James M. Pryse, an eminent Theoso
nhist of New York, will arrive in this city
by this evening's train from New York.
He comes on a business trip in connection
with the coming convention to be held in
Madison Square Garden. New York, April
26tb and 27th. Mr. Pryse was formerly a
resident of this city. During his seven
years's absence he has founded a large
printing establishment for the Tneosophi
cal society, both in London and New York,
and printed hundreds of thousands of The
osophical books, and magazines and
pamphlets enough to flood four continents.

his flying trip of the coast at Victoria and
return to New York before the convention.

OIL AS IT IS NOW QUOTED
TREASURER TURNER OF THE E.XCHANGB
TALKS OF PRICES
He Thinks Thst the Producers tlnst Hang To
gether or Quotations Will Drop—Surplus
Oil ."lust Ba Sbipp-d Awav-lf This Can Be
Dons the $■ Mark Is In Sight
For some time the oil situation in this
city has been in a rather anomalous condi
tion. On the one hau l have been the pro
ducers, headed by the oil exchange, who
have made every elTort to uphold and ad
vance thet price, and on the other certain
large consumes who have claimed that oil
was too high already and that they could
afford to pay no mora for it, else they
would ba forced to return to coal as a fuel.
As the price was gradually advanced and
contracts expired consumers were unable
to renew at ihe old rates and were obliged
to use their reserve supply antl buy in
small quantities out in the fieid from par
ties who were willing to take less than the
established market rate. 'There were many
of these who, from one cause or another,
were forced lo dispone of their oil as fast as
it was pumped into 'heir tanks.
The course pursued by these men could
have but one effect, that of weakening the
quoted price. If, when the exchange rate
was 70 cents at the wells, a party could
buy plenty of oil from outside parties at
60 or 65 cents per barrel, he cartainly
would not pay more. There have been for
some time certain San Francisco parties in
the field taking all the oil they could get at
60 and even 65 cents, at which rates they
have secured several carloads per day,
while the exchange members were holding
on for their rate of 75 cents. Owing to the
number of new wells recently sunk and the
increased flow in those deepened tlie pro
duct has remained about the same as sev
eral months ago.
When the Enoch Talbot took her first
cargo of 6000 barrels to San Francisco tho
surplus of many producers was exhausted
and the price was jumped a notch. Since
then sales have been discourage gly slow,
the bulk of orders being supplied by the
outside producers at cut ratoß, bo much so
that certain exchange members have done
some tall thinking, a week ago in these
columns it was stated that the price of oil
was likely to fall, which was denied in
some quarters. In an interview with
Treasurer Turner of the oil exchange he
yesterday saitl:
"The situation today is just this: Unless
all the producers will join hands in ship
ping their surplus stock from this section
and helping to fill the tank vessel Enoch
Talbot, oil will be selling for 60 cents in
side of two weeks. The price has been
stiffening in anticipation of the boat secur
ing and carrying north the surplus oil, but
if she does not go and tho producers con
tinue to pull in opposite directions, the
price of oil must indubitably fall. Tlie
exchange alone cannot support the market
at the present price. It must have the
co-operation of other well owners Instead
of being constantly undermined by them.''
Sitting by and indorsing Mr. Tumor's re
maths was G. M. Smith of tlie Union Oil
company, who fully agreed that some
means must be taken soon to remedy tlie
situation. "If the other producers will
only come in and ship away their oil,
leaving just enough to supply
the local market, tlie price
can be maintained and the long hoped lor
$1 mark will soon be reached," said Mr.
Smith. "As long as we have no outlet for
the surplus disorganizations diminished
prices must be the result."
It is understood that at the meeting of
the exchange directors last. Monday they
were between the devil and the deep sea;
in other words, that there was tin middle
ground to be taken. The price must be
boosted and confidence maintained or oil
was bound to fall. In this line 5 cents was
put on, making the rate 85 rents, f. o. b.
If the Talbot can take away a load of 9000
barrels soon enough and relieve tlie uiai
ket, according to Mr. Turner, tho price can
be maintained. If not, then will come a
reduction.
There are now nineteen new wells being
drilled and a number of old holes deep
ened in the field. It is estimated that
there is held in the tanks at the wells
something over -10,000 barrels, which
will be greatly increased by the new wells
as soon as they come in. The exchange
rate is 75 cents at tho tanks, but rumors
of sales at 65 cents ure plenty. If a man
Warranted and
One Year J^jj^M
lias spot cash to pay he can undoubtedly
get plenty of oil at the latter figure.
At the oil exchange it was reported
that they were well satisfied with the re
sults of the last trip of the Talbot, and
that she might be expected to show up at
