Still Unsettled

PASADENA, June 20.—The settlement
of the Mann & Daniels mill site dispute,
which was thought to have been dis
posed of at the special meeting of the
city council Inst Wednesday, again bobß
up serenely, as unsettled as ever. There
seems to have been a misunderstanding
as to the terms of the offer of K. C. Web
ster, or elso somebody has backed out;
at any rata they cannot agree, und the
whole question is opened up again. Ac
cording to Mr. Mann and others who
were present at the council meeting;
aforesaid, Mr. Webster agreed to pur
chase the site which was considered by
him and others in tho neighborhood aa
an objectionable location for the mill,
nnd to pay SLTiO down with the balance at
tho end of ninety days, putting up good
collateral security for the balance till
paid. But when the final talk on the
matter was had Mr. Webster would not
put up both the cash payment und tha
security, saying his offer was to put up
one or the ether, but not both. The price
agreed upon was $6100. The council
granted a permit for the mill to be built
upon another site which was unobjec
tionable to the property owners who had
defeated tha llrst attempt to locate the
mill, this lalter site to be purchased with
the money received from Mr. Webster
for the llrst one. As a matter of fact, the
second site lor which the cuuncll readily
granted a permit Is nearer to the center
of business than the first for which they
would nut grant a permit. The way lt
stands now, since Mr. Webster will fur
nish enough cash in purchasing the for
mer site to help with building the mill,
Mann & Daniels cannot go ahead on the
proposition It is to be hoped that the
matter can be udjusted so that the pro
ject can go ahead, for It is a good thing
for the town, employing many hands.

HOW YOU CAN GET RICH ON $35
And at the Same Time Quit
Drinking
A Way to Escape the Most Dread
ful Curse With Which 3lan Is
Alnlctert—Open to All
The Herald reporter visited the offices
of the National Liquor Cure company at
122 and 123 Wilson block, in an endeavor
to secure an interview which was denied
us during the week on account of stress
of business. It was our good fortune to
meet the lady manager, Mrs. Hotchkiss,
who volunteered to give us a few min
utes' interview. She said, when asked,
it might be considered odd to find a wo
man in this line of business, but she was
satisfied after a long experience that
women must be met by women in a case
of this kind; "and," said she, "I have la
bored for years with and for women and
1 know just how to sympathize with
them, and I know, also, that they will
come to and talk with one of their own
sex more readily than with men. I feel
satisfied that we are doing a grand mis
sionary work and that we are making
very many happy homes throughout the
country." In reply to the question, "Are
you meeting with the success anticipat
ed when you first opened the offices?"
she returned: "Our success has been un
parelleled, and we owe it all to the fact
that we never betray our trust. No per
son need fear that we will ever give the
name of a patient to boom our cure, and
we receive more calls on that account
than any liquor cure ever offered the
public.
"We simply give the patient the med
icine to carry home, and he can hide it
from his family if he sees fit. Then he is
not asked to take hypodermic injections
nor to follow a lot of tyrannical rules,
but simply takes the remedy when he
feels like taking a drink, and before he
knows it he is cured arvd that's the end
of the matter. My experience has taught
me that men seldom like to pose as 'be
fore and after' examples of appetite, and
though there are a few who are working
for the good of thir fellow men and will
go out and lecture on the subject and
acknowledge their former drunken ca
rousals, as did John Gough, yet as a rule
they seldom wish to refer to it.
"I wish you could hear our patients
come in and talk of their restoration.
The joy depicted on their faces would
prove to you what a glorious work we
are doing. One man since last January
has put his money, which formerly went
into the saloons, into a house and lot on
the installment plan; another has gone
into the country and has gone to work
as foreman of a large ranch from which
he had been discharged for drunkenness,
■ and another has gone to San Francisco
as salesman in a large grocery house. I
could tell you many touching stories of
ladies who have fallen Into the habit, and
of their restoration and thankfulness;
also of wives and mothers who have
sought for and administered the cure to
their male relatives. I could go on ad
infinitum, but it is enough to say that we
are doing good work and are proud of it."
"Mrs. Hotchkiss," we inquired, "do
you ever have to refund the deposit
money on account of a failure to cure?"
Said she, smiling: "So' far we never
have. The medicine is a certain cure,
and we have yet to find a patient who
has not been cured, and we have had
some which would be called hopeless —
men who have laid in jails week in and

SANTA BARBARA
A Trial ti Be Made of Salt Water lor Street
Sprinkling
SANTA BARBARA. June 20.—The ques
tion of sprinkling streta with salt water,
which has been agitated here for years, has
'at length resulted in a tangible effort to
that end. City Engineer J. K. Harrington
, has prepared plans and estimates to appro
priate water from the ocean and dlstrlbuto
it through the city. The water supply is
inadequate for general purposes, and the
use of sea water for street sprinkling has
become an urgent necessity. The esti
mated cost of machinery, pipes and other
appliances necessary to accomplish tho
purpose Is J25.000. City Attorney Thomas
McNultn Is now preparing an ordinandi
calling for an election, and the people will
pass upon the issue.
Although the bill making Santa Barbara
a sub-port of entry has not been signed by
the president, a number of aspirants have
already appeared for the pnsttlon of port
collector. Among them ji:e School Trus'co
M. B. McDuffle. Councilman C. E. LataU
lade and Tgnacio Del Valle of Los Angeles,
at present port Inspector here. The Demo
cratic, county central committee will prob
ably indorse Latalllade.
Col. Fernando Cardenas, government
agent at the San.ia Cnta reservation. Is in
this city. He states that things are quiet
among the Indians, with the exception of
the regular Saturday night outbreaks,
when the Rborigines invariably attempt
to capture Santa Ynez.
The Republicans will hold their ratiflcn

plank being lost in the manifest enthusi

A Lesson In the Oame
In a well played and altogether most
exciting game of baseball the Los An
geles high school team yesterday defeat
ed the team from the Whittier state
school by a score of 10 to 1. The pitching
was the feature of the game; hits were
few and far between. Superior pitching
and battery work won the game for the
high schools. McCann and Ferguson
for Whittier and Harvey and Strohm for
the high schools were the batteries. Fif
teen strikeouts were credited to Harvey
and ten to McCann. Tufts' home run
drew out a great deal of applause and
the crowd was well pleased with the
creditable exhibition of the national
game.
The high school club has played eleven
games and won nine, giving them a
proud game average of .818.
A rildnlght Row

brought to the county jail by OfficerWer
din, one to have his wounds attended by
the police surgeon and the other booked
for disturbing the peace.
Worka Like a Charm
During the past three years whenever
anyone of our family has been attacked
by a cough arising from "Grippe" or

we feel warranted in giving it a cordial

Nervous Debility when | i
IT IS PITIABLE to think of the vast number ot men who go on f rom day
1 to day suffering mental and physical torture as a result of their weak
ness, while right at their doors other men are being cured of the same dis
ease. One who has not known it himself cannot realize the feelings of the
man in an advanced stage of Nervous Debility, nor does he; hear of it, for
these men do not talk of their troubles. Even when they are fortunately
led to use the remedy which is now so well known—Dr. Sanden's Electric
Belt—and are cured by it, they do not mention it to their closest friends;
hence the prevalence of this trouble and the means of core are appreciated
only by those who have had experience.
Considering these points.it is worth while to note how many'hus..
throw aside all feelings of delicacy and give to the world, for the benefit of
fellow-sufferers, the fact of their cure by Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt.
"I could dance with joy when I consider that I have been saved from
the necessity of living the rest of my life in that miserable condition," says
A. J. Morse, Los Gatos, Cal., after using Dr.* Sanden's Belt one month.
. Such gratitude must give vent to words of praise. Mr. Morse is a man
past his prime and was given up by Dr. Urquhart of Los Gatos. He was ia
the last stages of Nervous Debility and is now fast recovering his strength,
Mr. L. L. Jaccard, one of the best known and most respected men in
Alameda County, in the jewelry business at San Leandro, was cured by Dr.
Sanden's Electric Belt over a year ago. Last week he said: "I have no
delicacy in making this statement. Your Belt has cured me of a varicocele
and weakness that has been slowly destroying me for twenty-six years, and
now that I am cured I think it is no more than right to tell the rest of the
poor sufferers of it. A thing that is really good ought to be spoken of." .
Mr. Jaccard is now one of the best specimens of physical manhood in Ala
meda County. He is fifty years of age, five feet nine inches in height,
weighs 210 pounds and does not carry an ounce of superfluous flesh. His
form is a mass of muscle.
Strength of manhood is not dependent upon flesh. Fat men are seldom
vigorous. This strength is in the nerves, and the life is electricity. This
explains the reason for the inevitable failure of drugs and the success of Dr.
Sanden's Electric Belt in restoring the lost power.
Applied for three to six hours in the twenty-four, at any time during
the day or night that is most convenient to the patient, it saturates the sys
tem with Electric energy (animal magnetism), and this energy slowly builds
up the forces of all vital parts. The vigor of manhood expands and be
comes perfect in two or three months.
"I received your belt on February 9 last, and wore it for two or three I
hours every night for about two months. lam cured, and my partner, '
Henry Mauvis, used the same belt for vital weakness and it has cured him,"
says Julius Jahn, Silver Star, Montana, May 17.
No remedy is so easy to use as Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt. None gives
such quick results. It has a patented regulator, which enables the wearer to
turn the current on mild or strong at will while the Belt is on the body. It
is warranted to last and give a strong electric current for one .year. It
is by all means the surest cure for any weakness.
Young, middle-aged and old men should send for Dr. Sanden's famous
work, "Three Classes of Men," which will be sent, closely sealed, without '
marks, free. It gives full information, and hundreds of letters from people
cured. It may save you a great deal of suffering. Address or call,
