M. Glenn Allen delivered the first ora
tion, his subject being When Are We
Educated? Mr. Alien acquitted himself
in a happy manner and treated hiß topic
True education Is the development of
the faculties, the foundation only of
which is laid in school life. This found
ation must be built upon in after lite.
To keep up with the times the student
must not drop study upon his gradua
tion, but should always follow some dis
tinct course. If he Is not content to fall
behind his fellow he must think and
labor diligently. William E. Gladstone,
General Garfield and David Star Jordan
were mentioned as shining examples of
this steadfastness of purpose. In an
swer to the question, When Are We
Educated? the reply should be, never.
We must certainly look forward and
strive for something better.
Next came Miss Lillian Fawcett's es
say on Compensation. The reward for
all good work Is sure to follow according
to the Inexorable law of compensation,
whether the deed is done by nation or
Individual. As a result of the labor of
nations to make thmselves more power
ful their armaments have become so
perfect that war is now almost an im
possibility. Arbitration is becoming the
means for settling all disputes, and thus
Improvement in military tactics and im
plements is defeating its own ends.
Every cup of Joy has its drop of bitter
ness, every good Its evil, every evil its
good, but death ends all and God rec
ompenses according to merit.
Nine young gentlemen sang a vintage
song dealing with Pasadena's pretty
girls and Bill McKlnley's candidacy for
president. The words were the composi
tion of George Backoff, one of the sing
ers, and the song was encored.
Miss Alma Barnett's essay was enti
tled the Three Boxes, an was an ex
ceedingly happy Idea. The first of these
boxes lsthe bandbox of the queen of
fashion, well known to the hearts of
women and not unfamiliar to the pock
ets of men. It has figured in the over
throw of governments and has over
whelmed poor starving people with debt,
as in the case of the luxurious reign of
Louis XIV, followed by the French rev
Next the beautiful bandbox is trans
formed into the bloody cartridge box,
which has held sway for ages, but It is
not likely to prevail in the future for
politicians and philosophers of modern
times are ushering in the third of the
boxes, the peace loving ballot bot, which
is to decide all differences.
Arthur B. Williams, in dealing with the
question What Shall We Do With
Hawaii? advocated annexation. The
islands are admirably situated as coal
ing stations, and would therefore be of
value to the United States. Besides
this consideration, of the 100,000 popula
tion of today one-tenth are Americans
deserving of protection. He quoted
James G. Blame's policy toward the re
public and favored its adoption.
Misses Grace Magee and Edith Brush
appeared at the piano with a bolero by
Moszkowski, which was artistically
Miss Jessie L. Footer delivered an
essay entitled The Crisis. Through both
the crises of the American republic,
the revolution and the rebellion, It has
come off victorious. The crisis in the life
of every individual must be passed.
When the crisis comes the best thing to
do is to follow the motto of the English
man, who would say at such times, "I'll
think a bit." The great secret of suc
cess is singleness of purpose and the
little things are those that tend to build
the true character.
Miss Lettle Nichol's essay was upon
The Influence of Environment. Our lives
are greatly influenced by our surround
llng. In America, in contrast to the
state of affairs In the orient, every man
governs his own business and is thrifty.
City and country life were contrasted.
In the former there are advantages to
be had from rich institutions, schools,
libraries and the like. Hence from the
cities come the cultured classes, while
In the country men are nearer to nature.
A mother's influence has much to do
with final conditions of character. Books
have done much towabrd influencing
lives, and should be chosen with great
•Miss Helen Hoose spoke upon The
Century's Influence Upon Woman. In
early times woman was considered only
as an assistant to man. At the time of
the dawn of Christianity she was given
something of her rights, but even these
were taken from her later, and it was
not till about a century ago that she was
recognized as she should have been. To
day there Is a prospect of her equaling
and even excelling man In Intellect.
The program was in two parts, the
second part being opened with a selec
tion, Jaclnta, by the Throop orchestra,
followed by an oration by Arthur Gould
upon The Public Schools.
Education differs according to the re
quirements of the times. The ancients
trained their children to the manners of
war, but today school houses are con
sidered the bulwark of the nation. It is
the Ignorant who fill the Jails. So Im
portant haa education become that there
is talk of appointing a cabinet officer
to look after the schools.
Miss Grace Tower's essay was upon
Drifting or Rowing. Hope leads all
through life, and for the young this hope
is most bright.
Life begins to unfold itself at the close
of school years. Then is the time to
choose between drifting and rowlng.Sus
cess can only be gained by effort and its
price is eternal vigilance.
Miss Evelyn Ratcliffe rendered a vio
lin solo that was heartily received and
Miss Helen Flynn read a Plea for
Good Roads. She contrasted the mag
nificent highways of England with those
of the Un ited States. The bicycles were
to be blessed, for so long as horses toiled
over Impassable ruts and ridges no one
cared, but when man himself is com
pelled to exert his strength some move
ment will be made for the better. If a
small portion of the energy expended In
grumbling were turned to systematic
and united effort things would be dif
Good Night, Sweet Angel, was admir
ably sung by Miss Julia Ogden, who
refused to respond to tha hearty encore
she received.
Under the Seven Hills waa the subject
of Miss Mary Farcy's essay. She de
scribed the ancient catacombs of Rome
which were first used only by the poorer
classes. About the third century with
the rise of Christianity many of the Ro
man rulers were burled beside the mar
Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was ren
dered at the piano by Misses Alice Llsk
and Sarah Coleman, followed by a
strongly delivered oration by Bernard
Bowron upon The Rank is but the
Guinea's Stamp. It should not be the
outward appearance which makes the
man what he is. Outwardly the coun
terfeit Is as good as the genuine. It is
the real worth of the individual which
should count as it is the gold in the coin
which determines its value. There Is
danger In the election of officers that
the politics of the man is the principal
thing to consider.
Mrs. Jennie Coleman presented the

of the pupils.

A larger number of colored people and
not a few fairer brothers turned out last
night to the entertainment at Wiltams'
hall for the benefit of William Sea*raves,
whose family will now be enabled to
join him in Pasadena. Leading colored

Mr. T. P. Pohle, the tailor of Green
street, lost $2.10 yesterday morning from
a drawer in his shop. He came down
town at about half past seven oclock
and found the money where he had left
it over night. He then left the shop for
a couple of hours, and upon his return
the cash as well as a two-cent postage
stamp was missing. Evidently the
theft was committed by some one who
possessed a key, as the door had been
relocked after the money was stolen.
Mr. Pohle says that the thief can have
the stamp if he returns the money.
While Ray Franklin of the High school
graduating class was taking part in the

The City Schools Teapot Tempest—City Coun
cil fleeting
POMONA, June 24.—The board of edu
cation held a spirited session in the high
school building last evening, lasting
from 7:30 oclock until 2 oclock this
(Thursday) morning, in hearing the
charges preferred against City Superin
tendent of Schools F. A. Molyneaux by
Oliver Youngs, George W. Ogle, C. B.
Messenger, J. E. Crawford and Clar
ence H. Lee, in which nine of the public
school teachers of this place were wit
nesses, namely, Misses Mattie A. Reed,
Nellie F. Ray, H. F. Brewer, Ada Miner,
Katherlne Fall, Emma Thornton, Mary
Peter, Lillie Hill and Mrs. A. E. Brink.
Prof. Molyneaux made a very able de
fense in his own behalf and while some
of the charges against him were sus
tained in part, in the majority of cases
extenuating circumstances, fully ex
plained by Prof. Molyneaux, served to
mitigate their baleful import and ex
plained his actions, under the circum
stances, to a large extent. In the ma
jority of Instances.
At the conclusion of the testimony at
near 2 oclock this morning, the board
took the matter under advisement and
will render a decision Tuesday evening
next. It is generally conceded by a ma
jority of those who heard the testimony
that while, in their estimation. Prof.
Molyneaux Is to blame to some extent
and perhaps was too hasty in a number
of instances, that the board will sus
tain him in his explanation of the mat
The two strongest charges brought
against Prof. Molyneaux, and proof was
not lacking, are his quickness of temper
in disciplining teachers, at times hasty
treatment of them and reference to them
in terms unbecoming a gentleman.
The public here honestly believes that
both sides or factions have had enough,
and that there will be no more trouble.
The city council met last night and re
scinded the acceptance of Messrs. Har
ris & Cos. bid for the water bonds, made
some months ago, for the reason that
Messrs. Harris & Co. did not carry out
the terms of their contract in the matter
and the city wants to sell the bonds to
some one else, therefore the council
passed a resolution to re-advertise for
new bids.
Messrs. Fleming & Becket of Pomona
renewed their offer to take half the
bonds at $10,000 premium.
A petition was received showing that
the railroad track on White avenue near
Center is not on the line authorized by

the same and for bids for sprinkling
streets and city printing.
Time on all contracts on water system
was extended to September Ist.
An ordinance was introduced and laid
over for five days authorizing the sale
of water bonds.

A Highland Patlent'a Suicide—Baby Drowned.
SAN BERNARDINO, June 24.—At an
early hour this morning the coroner was
notified that Albert Sibley, an inmate
of the asylum at Highland, had com
mitted suicide by hanging himself with
sheets taken from the bed and tied
through the bars of the window in his
room. Sibley was a young man only
30 years of age, and was committed from
Ventura. He was released over a year
ago as almost cured. His mother re
turned him to the asylum about two
months ago, as the signs of Insanity
had again appeared in a more violent
form. Since his return he has improved
to such an extent that he was one of
the paroled inmates. The inquest was
held this forenoon, and no one held re
sponsible for the death.
A 10-months-old baby son of Hans
Aarup fell into a watering trough yes
terday afternoon, and was drowned be
fore discovered. The child's mother
was called Into the house on an errand,
and was only absent for ten minutes.
When the babe waa lifted from the
trough there were no signs of life. A
doctor was called and worked at re
suscitation for over half an hour, but
without success. The coroner's Jury
was Impaneled late in the evening and
gave a verdict in accordance with the
facts stated.

The public administrator has filed a
petition for letters of administration
in the case of William Wulff, who was
Willed in the Declez quarry on June
6th by the falling of a derrick. The pe
tition states that there is $30 due in
wages, but that the deceased was sup
posed by his fellow workmen to be in
comfortable circumstances. He was
reported to be the owner of about $4000
which was deposited in some bank. No
one seems to remember in what bank
the deposit was made, as the deceased
was a man of very great reticence. At
the time of his death preparations were
made to bury him at county expense,
when the coroner discovered an address
on a scrap of paper which he used for
a telegram. By this means he learned
that Wulff was a prominent member
of an Oakland lodge of the I. O. O. F
although they were able to give but
little other information regarding hlm.
Whether or not he was the owner of
such a. bank account is problematical,
but the administrator will commence
Inquiries at once.

A War of Words Makes Sport
for Visitors
But Passengers Hereafter Will Probably
Pay Fare
A Big; Celebration Arranged for tha Fourth
and the People Will Be
There to See
AVALON, June 24.—Yesterday wit
nessed one of the liveliest and most ex
citing scenes that ever took place at
Avalon. The Point Loma, a gasoline
launch from Long Beach, owned by Cap
tain and Mrs. R. W. Cresswell, with ten
passengers, tried to land without pay
ing the usual fare to the Wilmington
Transportation company. The officers
of the company backed by officers of the
law kept the boat from making a land •
ing, and there was a wordy war between
Judge Jos. Banning for the company
and Mr. Charles Wellborn, formerly a
prominent lawyer of San Diego, now of
Los Angeles, and son of the honorable
Judge Ollne Wellborn. Mr. Wellborn,
who was a passenger on the launch,
took the ground that they had a right to
land, the company disputed that right
and held their ground and the party re
mained in the launch until 4 oclock. when
she left for Long Reach, leaving behind
Mrs. W. S. Praeger and little girl and
Mrs. E. A. Cahoon and child of Roswell,
N. M., who paid the regular steamer
fare, $2,2r., round trip from San Pedro.
The passengers were W. A. Cole, H. W.
Maxwell. Arthur Stalked, and Andrew
Lincoln of Long Beach, Lenora Keeney,
Mrs. Carver and Mr. Joyce of Los Ange
Several altercations took place over
the matter. Louis Busse, the boatman,
insisted on trying to land the passengers
and made himself so obnoxious to the
men interested that Captain Alexander
Smith gave him a whipping and then
presented himself before his honor.Judge
Whitney, pleaded guilty and paid his
Another funny occurrence took place.
The captain of the Lindo, Mr. Colley,
and Tom Savage, the engineer, were go
ing a3hore. A Mr. Campbell, a friend,
pushed them off. Carrying the fun too
far, they started to tussle. The fight
terminated when Mr. Campbell was held
up by the heels and thoroughly ducked.
A crowd collected, thinking one of the
objectionable passengers was the mis
used party.
Another funny incident happened
when "Louis." the boatman, tried to
land the wife of the captain on Hamil
ton Beach, about a mile from Avalon.
He was chased by the company's pow
erful yacht Linda, but succeeded in
landing the lady in an inaccessible spot
which prevented her from reaching Ava
lon. When the boat entered the harbor
a man with a gun stood in the bow and
things looked very warlike for awhile.
Everything is now very quiet and in
all probability today's affair will not be
The company always welcomes yacht
ing parties where no fare is paid, but if
the party is a pay one, they must pay the
regular fare before landing.
The passengers on the Point Loma
said they did not pay fare, but it was ad
mitted that $1.00 for the return trip was
to be collected. The captain was served
with a written notice by the company
that if he attempted to land passengers
they would have to pay the fare.
In the general scuffle the Linda acci
dentally wrecked the fine rowboat of
Mr. Charles Patrick while "Louis," the
boatman, was In charge.
The excursion business and fishing was
neglected, as was everything else, on
account of the excitement.
Mr. Allayne-Jones, accompanied by
his wife, captured, with rod and reel,
yesterday afternoon, a forty-pound yel
lowtail and a twenty-five pound sea bass.

Gladness Comes
With a better understanding- of tho
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts —gentle efforts—pleasant c rTorts—
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not duo to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of tho system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
every wltere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is tho
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating tha
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only anil sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system 'is. regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, ono
may bo commended to tin; most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction.
Twisted, swollen, painful, weakening In
its effectß upon the vital powers, the direct
catiße of thousands of cases of general
nervous exhaustion, debility and decay.
This Is Varicocele in the veins of the vital
parts. It is perhaps the most dangerous
of the many results of early indiscretions.
It drains the vital powiers in that slow,
treacherous manner which leaves no sign
of its terrible effect until the awful work
is done—until the whole nerve force, tho
foundation of mental, physical and vital
strength Is undermined and manhood de
stroyed. Doctors have tried every known
means In their attempts to cure it and they
have usually given It up with the advice
that it will not be a serious matter. But
this Is only their way of excusing themselv
es for their helplessness. It is a serious mat
ter, as Is proven by tlie thousands of phy
sicnl wrecks it has caused.
But it can be cured by
Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt
To those suffering from Varicocele: I
would like to add my testimony to numer
ous others In possession of Dr. Sanden's
Electric Belt Co. I purchased a No. 7 Belt
from Dr. Sanden about the Ist of April,
which I used according to directions, and
after three months' trial I am happy to
say that my Varicocele, which was ot
twelve years' standing has almost entire
ly disappeared, and the veins and parts
are almost normal. 1 lake great pleasure
in recommending this Belt to any one suf
fering from a like trouble. Respectfully
yours, WM. E. JOHNS,

There is not another remedy in the
world today which has received the fav
