PASADENA'S COUNCIL MEETS
Takes Another Try at Colorado Street Improvement LITTLE CATHOLIC CHURCH By Formal Decree Mutt Remain Where It Is Msnn * Danleli Dscfde to Rebuild Their Planing Mill—Patriotic Reading for Pub. lie School Children-Brevities PABADKNA, May IS. —The city coun cil met this afternoon In a short hut spirited session. President Hartwell, Trustees Collin, Hamilton, Patton and wasnourn were present. Kobert Strong addressed the board in behalf of prop erty owners on East Colorado street, representing about 0000 feet frontage. A petition was presented asking that, if the grade of that street from the east city limits to Marengo avenue had not yet been established, it be established. The petitioners were willing to give fif teen feet on each side of the street to the city. They asked that the street he paved with six Inches of granite, for which the frontage on the paved por tion was to be assessed. New curbs and gutters are also desired, and others re paired or replaced in order that the etreet may be ono ot the best in the city. The committee had seen officers of the electrlo road, who were undecided whether the double track will extend beyond Los Rubles, or whether one will be laid at all. Upon the assurance that the company would stand their share of the cost the committee felt authorized to go ahead with the work. The only difference that will be made Is that if the electric company lays a double track He share of the cost will be greater, and the property owners' less by IS cents per loot. The petition was received, llled and referred to the committee on streets and alleys and to tho city attorney. The latter will make a careful investigation of the matter and report his llndlng. The oniy other matter of Importance was the removal of the Catholic church from Its present location on Pucnte place to tho vicinity of Valley and De lacey streets, which was defeated, the decree being that the structure must re main where it is. Trustee Hamilton moved that the permit be granted to move tha church. He was seconded by Mr Coffin. Mr. Washburn then arose nnd protested excitedly against the mo tion. He said that the removal was not the wish of the society, but a scheme of the wealthy property owners near the present site to "shove off" the building upon the poor men near the proponed site. He accused the rich men on South l asartena avenue of having paid money to get rid of the building. Trustee Coffin asked Mr. Furlong if the matter was of personal Interest to him, or if he ap peared for the society. Mr. Furlong showed a letter which he had received from Bishop Montgomery asking him that he use his influence In having the church moved closer in. He denied that any money had been paid for the re moval. The owner of the property on the corner of Valley nnd Dclacey wished to trade It for the present site of the church. The society would accept the trade if the council permitted the re moval. Their sole object was to lind a more convenient situation. .Should this be allowed It was probable that a hand some structure would take the place of the old one In the near future. The motion by Mr. Hamilton, seconded by Mr. Coffin, that the permit he grantpd was submitted. Coffin voted aye Ham ilton aye, I'atton no. Washburn no, President Hartwell no. The sentiment of.the board seemed to be in favor of granting all privileges for the erection of a new church, however. An ordinance for the grading of Ar lington court, from Orange Grove ave nue to a point 477 feet west, was read for the third time and placed on its final passage. An ordinance for the establishment of speclHcations for cement work was read for the first time. A NEW PLANING MILL.

Alexander Adams was taken to tho county Jail last night on a warrant is sued upon il complaint sworn to by Her bert Bacon, alleging an assault with a deadly weapon. Adams was arrested by Marshal Slater and taken before Jus tice Rosslter, who fixed bonds at $1500, in default of which Adams went over to jail. Bacon Is a baker by occupation and was a friend of Adams and his wife. Some three months ago Bacon came to room with the Adamses and it was ow ing to his attentions to Mrs. Adams that tho trouble arose, Adams reproached his wife with caring too much for Ba con and the latter finally left the house. Two weeks later Mrs. Adams left her husband and took service with the fam ily of a Mr. Acres on Illinois street. She took with her their little 3-year-old daughter and has since refused her hus band access to the little one. Sunday night about 8 oclock Adams followed Bacon, thinking the latter was going to call on his wife and dogged him to the door of the Acres residence. There he Jumped on him and beat him over the head with a broom handle, knock ing him down and afterward kicking him. Bacon yelled for assistance, and after satisfying his wrath Adams left him. Bacon was taken into the Acres residence and has since been cared for there. Ho ewore to tho complaint as stated and Adams' arrest ensued. Adams was seen in tho county jail last night and said that the whole dif ficulty arose over the attentions paid to his wife by Bacon, w ho had been taken Into his home and had alienated his wife's affections. Bacon is an asthmat ic and came here from British Columbia for his health. Adams had repeatedly warned him to keep away from his wife or he would thrash him, but Bacon paid no heed. Mr. Acres, her employer, had also warned Bacon to keep away, but to no purpose. When the latter was ly ing on the ground he threatened to kill Adams on sight when he was able to get out, hence the trouble between the parties is probably not yet at an end. SAN BERNARDINO BAN BERNARDINO.MayIS.—A mur der was committed In Calico, a mining camp on the desert, Saturday night, E. Scallard killing a man named Roland. The tlrst intimation of the tragedy was yesterday morning when Assistant District Attorney Sprecher received a telegram announcing the killing and asking that the coroner, sheriff and dis trict attorney's offices he represented there at once. The telegram came from Justice Gregory and also stated that there was no officer at Calico to make an arrest, the constable having recently resigned, but Mr. Sprecher at once re plied that any citizen could make an arrest. Coroner Keating, Deputy District At torney Rolfe and Harry Lantz left for Calico by tlio first train, while Sheriff Holeomb sent word to his deputy at Daggett to act. The party arrived at Calico late in the afternoon and pro ceeded at once with the inquest, the result of it being that Scallard is charg ed with murder. A telegram received from -Mr. Rolfe during the morning an nounced this result, along with the in formation that the prisoner was in cus tody of Asa Green of Barstow and that the whole party would start for this city today, But little of the details of the crime can be learned. It. is reported that the murdered man was a new man in the • camp and went into one of the gambling houses, where the difficulty arose which ended in his death. The report was brought In from the desert today. A HIGH CHURCH CEREMONY The most Important Episcopal church ceremony ever held in this city occurred yesterday when Rev. H. A. Brown was raised to the priesthood, the ordination being performed by Bishop Joseph H. Johnson, assisted by Rev. Dean Trew of Los Angeles. St. John's Episcopal church could not accommodate the throng which came yesterday morning to witness the cere monies. , The service was an entire change from the usual order. The splendid chorus choir opened with a To Deum, following which Bishop Johnson announced his text, and began to preach. The subject of his sermon was The Work of the Ministry, founded from the words of I Cor., 4:5: "For we preach not ourselves, l ut Christ Jesus the Lord: and ourselves your servants for Jesus' saks." And It was a sermon addressed quite as much to the laity as to the candidate who was noon to be raised to the full rank of priesthood. The bishop re viewed the history of the position held In the church by the clergy from the earliest times, paying particular atten tion to the way in which the precepts were regarded and should be regarded by the laymen, and his sermon was full of Instruction for the latter. Then followed his solemn charge to the candidate for ordlnartlon and the pre sentation by Dean Trew, the questions and the answers by which the vows were made anew; the laying on of hands by which is communicated the authority r,iven originally by the apostles: and tho Investing ot the newly made priest with the stole, and other insignia of his office. One feature of the day was the music, rendered by a choir of twenty voices, under the direction of C. E. Percy. The music had been specially prepared, and the manner in which it was rendered added much to the beauty of the service. NOTES OF THE DAY. It Is estimated that 1000 people went to the springs yesterday, most of them going out by the Harlem motor road.

KSp^ffil^^B CHARGED WITH BURGLARY Tbe Wounded Housebreaker Proves to Be a Bold Sneak Tbief Used His Employment at Canvassing- as • Sbltld fur burglarious Operations—A Clear Case Made Against Him In the police court yesterday after noon there was filed a complaint which charges Thomas Thornton, the can 's asser who was shot on Sunday morn ing by a negro while breaking into the latter's room, with burglary. The com plaint has no connection with the epi sode already related iv the papers, but Fliows that Thornton richly deserved the shot he received and is a fit candi date for a cell. As has been stated, Thornton w as em ployed by tbe Household Magazine as a canvasser, and visited from house to house seeking subscriptions. With him he carried a square grip, or sample case, containing a lot of miscellaneous stuff which was given away as premiums to cash subscribers. On Saturday last Thornton was working Central avenue in the neighborhood of Seventh street. He called at the residence of a Mrs. W. L. Hammerman, at No. 734, and from I her secured a subscription, giving a re ceipt and a silver-plated spoon as a premium. Then he passed on to the next house, which is occupied by J. W. Sprague. Mrs. Sprague was away across the street visiting a friend when Thornton called at the back door. This was open and he entered the house. A neighbor whose residence is separated from the Spragues' by a vacant lot saw the man as he entered and watched the house. The curtains were up and the lady was enabled to see nearly all of Thornton's actions as he moved about the rooms. She saw him rummaging around and finally kneel down before n closet or bureau and come into the next room with something bright and shiny In his hands. He opened nls sample case and placed the article In it, walking out the back door and off across the lots. Just after the thief had departed one of Mrs. Sprague's sons came homo, and the neighbor told him hrr suspicions and that she believed the man had car lied something off in his case. He fol lowed Thornton and demanded that the latter open his case and allow him to sec tho contents. This was refused and the boy driven away. He went back home and told his mother nnd v search was instituted to ascertain what was missing. Not until an older brother came home ut 6 oclock was it found out what It was, when he missed his $.">0 silver-plated cornet. This was the bright article Thornton was seen by tlie neighbor to take. It seems that when he got away from the hoy he came up town and later in the evening, about 9 oclock. sold the cornet to a second-hand dealer named Bayers, whose place is at 344 East First street, for 11.50. With the money thus set ured he paid for the liquor whioh he and the woman called Frisco drank in the saloon at tho corner of First aivd Alameda streets. At the time tho woman was assaulted in her room and choked by her visitor she told several parties that that it wns the man who had been drink ing with her. and that he had attempt ed to steal her pocketbook. She now denies that it was Thornton, and says It w as another party who is still at large. When Thornton came to her room at 2:30 a.m. and was shot by Ellis as he was breaking in the door he ran away, but was caught by Henry Schneider, who is an officer of the Humane society of San Francisco. Schneider gave Thorn ton to two negroes to hold while he went into the houße to investigate, and when he got back the negroes had allowed Thornton to go. He blew his whistle, resulting in tho fugitive's again being stopped by Lyman, the private watch man, who also allowed him to depart upon his telling a straight story. Then followed tho notification to the polic< of Thornton's wound and his arrest. He is still in his cell in jail with a stiff and sore shoulder which is now giv ing him much pain. To Detective Steele Thornton has confessed his guilt and ad mitted stealing the cornet and selling it. There is a clear case against him and he wiil undoubtedly spend a term in the penitentiary. Thornton is a Liv erpool Englishman nearly 20 years of ago and was formerly a member of the Salvation army.' His wife and babies, who were left destitute by his arrest and wound, have been looked after by the associated charities and she will be on Thursday sent back to her parents it; Seattle, where the couple came from some few months ago. Ellis was held at the police station over Sunday, but yesterday discharged, his course in shooting Thornton being considered entirely justifiable. THE SUPERVISORS All of the Members ot the Board in Attend, ance at the Mestine Vesterdoy The board of supervisors met yester day with all the members present, cnalrman Francisco ana supervisor;; Field and Woodward, who had been in attendance at the state meeting of the supervisors at San Jose, returned home Sunday. The gentlemen express them selves as well pleased with the result of their labors, and say that the inter change of views and recommendations made, especially In the matter of the improvement of roads and_hlghways, will be ot great benelit to tne people of the state.

Mercury Is All Riarht Dr. Lewis Swift says that Mercury, the planet nearest the sun. is now visi ble to (he naked eye. and as not one per son in 500 has ever beheld that luminary, it Will be worth while to observe it. To be certain that the right object is found, look just above the sunset point as early as a star is visible, and near the horizon two stars will be seen, one above the other, some 5 degrees apart, the lower being the brighter. This is the planet which legend declares Copernicus was never able to see. Though now at Its greatest elongation from the sun, it may be seen for several days yet. Stole a Pinto Pony United States Marshal Covarrugias yesterday reported to the sheriff the theft of his pinto Shetland pony.

This Is Varicocele In the veins of the I vital parts. It is perhaps the most dan ! gerous of the many results of early indis i cretlons. It drains the vital powers In i that' slow, treacherous manner which i leaves no sign of its terrible effect until , the awful work is done—until tlie whole I nerve force, the foundation of mental, physical and vital strength, Is undermined and manhood destroyed. Doctors have tried every known means in their attempts to cure it. and have usually given It up with ihe advice that it will not be a ser ious matter. But this is only thelrway ot i xcuslng themselves for their helpless ness. It. Is a serious matter, as Is proven by tlie thousands of physical wrecks it has caused. But it can be cured by !
