FOR LA FIESTA Preparations Are Nearing Completion SOME UNIQUE ATTRACTIONS POLICE REGULATIONS WHICH WILL BE ENFORCED Boats for the Water Carnival—Gov ernor Sanguines Will Come From Ensenada The Chinese are going to excel all their former displays In the Fiesta of thto year. There will be the great dragon—the new one, three times as large as his brother of last year, and be sides he will have as a coadjutor a tre mendous tiger, who is the Chinese em blem of good luck. The tiger will ar rive in a few days, and will at once pay a visit to each buslnes house In China town, where he will be received with great ceremony. It will require twelve men to support this creature, and he will be decorated in the most gorgeous manner known to the Mongol mind. MARINES TO MARCH There will be plenty of sailor men In the parade, as shown by the following letter from Capt. G. W. Sumner of the United States vessels now at San Diego to President F. K. Rule: "I am in re ceipt of your letter of the 9th Inst. The Monadnock and the Monterey will leave here for San Pedro on Saturday next, the 17th inst., to participate in the Los Angeles Fiesta of April 20th-24th. Lists of the officers have been forwarded to your secretary, Mr. C. S. Walton. Suit able transportation, etc., having been tendered by you, it is my intention to land as large a force as we can spare »v,« „ nM «t, tot*. -*2,rt in the parade of Wednesday, April 21st. This force should be returned to San Pedro in time to enable the men to reach their vessels by 6 o'clock p. m. at the latest." ANIMATED BOUQUETS There will be sixteen animated bou quets in the floral parade. They will be from three and a half to five feet In diameter, and will march along in the fragrant display, delighting the specta tors. These are the design of Count Yon Schmidt, who saw them at a carnival giv'en at Mentone a few years ago. The bouquets will appear in all respects, save size, like those formal nosegays car ried by ladies to the opera. The stems will be hollow and will be occupied by lusty little newsboys, who will supply the motive power. The count has been promised plenty of flowers, and asks that donations be sent to him so as to arrive In town by the earliest trains on Friday morning. Wells-Fargo Ex press company has offered to transport all of the blossoms free of charge and deliver them to the count. There will be walking bouquets of violets, sweet peas, calla lilies, bridal wreath, roses, marl golds, wisterias and fleur de lis. SINGERS TO PARTICIPATE The fact that Madame Genevra John stone-Bishop Is to appear at the grand Fiesta concert, has created quite a sen sation in musical circles. Mme. Bishop Is a great artist and In oratorla work she has few equals. She is not only famous lo the United States but in Europe. She will sing "Wondrous Work," from the "Creation," accompanied by a large cho rus. Mme. Bishop is to be accompanied by Miss Nellie Cook, the famous pianist, who creates unbounded enthusiasm wherever she appears. Miss Cook Is a graduate of the Leipslc Royal Conserva tory and Imperial Conservatory at Vi enna. A strong feature of the program will be the singing of a selection from "Lucia" by a sextet composed of local talent. The ladies and gentlemen are: Mrs. Modlni-Wood, Mrs. W. W. Conant, Mrs. J. G. Scarborough, Mrs. J. S. Owens, J. A. Osgood. Modini-Wood, C. S. Cornell, Dr. L. Senler, H. S. Williams and R. R. France. THE WATER CARNIVAL Lumber for the boats to be used in the grand water carnival at Westlake park is now on the ground and will be rapidly worked up. There are to be seven boats, each 14x30 feet in dimension. These boats, or barges, will be so constructed as to show off the floats they are to carry to the best possible advantage. The water carnival is to be one of the artistic and charming features of the week's fes tivities. The various floats will illus trate some event in history. What with the brilliant coloring of the floats, the electric lights and general decorations, the effect will be something gorgeous. The queen's throne is to be located on top of the beautiful boat house, and from that commanding point the whole lake can be taken in with one sweep of the eye. Broad steps leading from the waters' edge to the throne will be constructed. The place of embarka tion will be on the east side of the lake, where the land slopes gently to the water. The lumber used at the lake was a special shipment from San Pe dro, and was carried to this city by the Terminal road free of charge. GOV. SANGUINES WILL COME The committee has received assurances that the governor of Baja California will be present and join In the festivities. The governor has many friends and ac quaintances in this city, and his visit will no doubt be one genuine pleasure. The governor's letter of acknowledg ment is written in Spanish and the trans lation is as follows: ENSENADA, April 7, 1897. Mr. F. K. Rule, President of the Exec utive Committee of the Fiesta of Los Angeles: My Dear Sir—l was greatly pleased at your invitation In yours of the 3d In stant, to attend the Fiesta which Is to occur in your beautiful city. And If it Is as I expect, my duties permitting and with the consent of the governor, I will be with you. Availing myself of the opportunity to place myself at your service or orders, I am ever your servant, attentive and affectionate. E. SANGUINES. POLICE REGULATIONS The following rules and regulations have been promulgated by Chief Glass for observance during Fiesta week, be ginning April 21, 1897: No vehicles of any character will be permitted to stand upon the streets along I the line of march during the parades. 1 Crowds will be required to stand upon the sidewalks and not in the street during the parades. Persons using bean shoot ers, bladders or throwing flour will be arrested and lecked up. No blowing of horns will be permitted after 12 oclock, midnight, Saturday. During carnival night maskers will be required to take the middle of the street, except for the purpose of crossing from one street to another, and will positively not be allowed upon the sidewalks. The police will be specially instructed to ar rest any parties violating these rules and regulations or disturbing the peace In any way. One hundred special officers will be sworn in and will do duty on carnival night. They will appear upon the streets ir. citizens' costume and will be on watch. Several prominent citizens have already volunteered to act as specials upon this occasion. Every precaution will be taken that no disorderly or disreputable con duct takes place. Innocent amusement will not be interfered with, but rough and disorderly conduct will result In ar rest. The chief Is confident that nothing will occur to mar the pleasure of the evening. It will be an occasion for fun, with all the objectionable features left out. FOR THE FLORAL PARADE Word has been received from the K. of P. uniform rank and the Foresters to the effect that they will form an im posing portlorsof the parade. The latter will muster one hundred mounted men In the gayest uniforms. Another inter esting part of the parade will be the ap pearance of Miss Anna Kessler of Po mona, who will ride standing on a trick horse, which she raised and educated herself. She will drive with ribbon reins a Shetland pony, on which will ride her little sister. Miss Kessler attracted much admiration last year by her dar ing feats on horseback, performed dur ing the parade. The two young women will also ride In the floral parade. Their horses will be loaded with the finest of blossoms to be had In Pomona. The executive committee state that j they do not authorize any person to so licit subscriptions. Those members who have or may ask for subscriptions to the Fiesta fund are of such a standing as to make It plain that they are the proper ones. There has been a person solicit ing money for Fiesta purposes who has no official authorization and for whom the committee is In no way responsible. Great pains will be taken with the tribunes to make them give the maxi mum of sflfAty anrt comfort. They will be enclosed by a tight board fence, and especial precautions will be taken against any possible accident. The float committee has won first prize for promptness, as they are through with their work and can put their beautiful flower stories on parade at a minute's notice. The engine companies are working hard on their contest for the prizes of fered by the Fiesta committee. The An geleno Heights company claim to be ahead in designs and amount of blos soms promised to them, but there are others, and they are going to strain every nerve to make the Angeleno men take a back seat. There is a great demand for tickets to the review of the children of the city by the queen at the tribunes on Saturday morning. No tickets are sold for this, the only admission being by tickets given to the children to distribute among their parents. The Jonathan club Is to be represented by a coach and six horses instead of ten, as reported, and with but ten outriders instead of twenty. Their turnout will be a magnificent affair but will not enter the parade In competition for prizes. The executive committee will visit the chairmen of the various committees this evening and receive reports. The presence of Governor Budd and staff is now counted on. At the Hotels HOLLENBECK—J.

McGurk of this city, who is out buying oattle and sheep to slaughter, was at Milton yesterday and ascertained there that since the tariff was l raised on wool, sheep are too valuable to eat. Sheep raisers have, of course, raised the price of wool up to the limit that the tar iff will allow, and the consumer pays the price.—Stockton Mail. LOS ANGELES HERALD* THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL ,5, 1897 RAILROADS Misunderstanding of the Foraker Pooling Bill THE TERMINAL NOT FOR SALE ! CHANGES AMONG SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA OFFICIALS Large Shipments of Vegetables to the East—Preparing for Heavy Freight Business Xs a great deal of misunderstanding has apparently arisen in respect to the so-called Foraker pooling bill, recently introduced in the senate, proposing va rious amendments to the interstate com merce law, the following statement of the essential points of the bill will be of Interest to railroad men in general: In Its present form the bill represents the result of several years of discussion and negotiation participated in by con gressional committees, the interstate commerce commission, organizations of business men and representatives of railways. It embraces a variety of top ics. It has twelve sections, only one of which touches the question of so called pooling contracts. The other changes proposed were chiefly such as have heretofore been recommended by the commission, and the amendment to the fifth section of the law is in the precise form which heretofore has not been objected to by the commission, and which has been quite generally assent ed to as expedient and safe. It prohibits pooling contracts in more careful terms than those employed in the original law, but provides conditions under which such contracts may be made, not to become effective if dis approved by the commission, twenty ctays being allowed lor preliminary ex amination, and to be subject to termi nation by the commission at any time; all rates, charges and facilities under such contracts to be subject to the control of the commission at all times. The measure does not vary essentially from what is known as the Paterson bill, which passed the house of repre sentatives of the fifty-third congress. Hadn't Heard of It A report was In circulation yes terday to the effect that General Passenger Agent John J. Byrne of the Southern California Railway company will next month be promoted to a more responsible position than he now holds, and that W. E. Walsh will be made auditor of the same road. Mr. Byrne not being in the city to affirm or d/?ny the rumor, General Manager Nevin was seen, and In speaking cf the matter said: "Well, this is the first Informa tion 1 have had of any more changes in the management of our road, and I think It will be news to Mr. Byrne when he hears it. The Atlantic and Pa cific road will be sold- at public auc tion on May 3d, and of course you know the Santa Fe company is going to bid for It. It may got it, and In that event some changes will probably take place, but I am sure that as yet they have not been discussed." Not for Sale For a few days past some of the oppo nents of the San Pedro harbor have been circulating the report that the affair had | been "hung up" purposely until certain i negotiations between the Southern Pa | ciflc and the Terminal Railway compa- I nies had been settled, whereby the for | mer hoped to purchase the latter com ' pany's property. T. E. Gibbon, vice ' president of the Terminal company, at ' once telegraphed to President Leightor. regarding the rumor, and yesterday ■ morning received the following answer: | "There Is no truth in the report and not I the slightest foundation from which such a report could emanate." Track and Traffic Railroad officials declare that at the present time the orange trees through out Southern California were never more heavily laden with blossoms than now, j and If no unfavorable weather is expe ! rienc?d next season will see the largest I orange crop ever known in the history cf i California. The present crop has about I all been marketed. During the past two weeks on an av j erage of fifteen carloads of vegetables have been shipped east dally from | Southern California points. The heavy ! shipments are due to the fact that the; I great overflow throughout the Missls | sippl valley has practically ruined the : vegetable crop of the south. At the Sacramento shops of the South | crn Pacific more than 2000 men are now t employed repairing everything on wheels i in anticipation of a heavy freight busi ness during the coming season. As evidence of the need of greater un! --! formlty In standards of freight cars, a car service official has stated that one Of the large railway systems has ninety five different varieties of cars in freight i service, as follows: Refrigerators. 2; fur . niture and buggy, 4; box, 42; stock, 14; : flat. coal. 12. The transcontinental lines, at a meet i Ing In New York last week, agreed that the same hasis of divisions of through rates shail apply on westbound business 'as now applies on eastbound business i from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic ; seaboard. This agreement will give to the eastern lines 25 per cent of the through rates, and it Is thought will cause much of the business that has ' been diverted to gulf routes to be again routed through Chicago. Two cases of the Riving away of bridge spans without apparent cause have oc curred within a few days, with disas trous results, says the Railway Age. i On the Ohio Connecting railway, which connects the Fort Wayne and Panhan dle lines of the Pennsylvania railroad between Pittsburg and Allegheny, a sec tion of the wooden trestle .which forms the approach to the Ohio river bridge went down under a very heavy freight engine on April 5. The engineer and fire- I man were killed and engine and cars were badly wrecked. The theory is ad ' vanced that an axle must have broken | letting down a heavy load upon the structure and causing an excessive ! strain. The engine and thirteen cars were precipitated into the street, upor. which an electric car had Just passed. On a branch of the Central of Georgia a ehort trestle gave way under a freight train, killing one or more of the train men. No explanation of this occurrence has been offered. Personal Notes J. O. Johnson, Pacific coast represen tative for the Chicago and Great West ern, arrived here yesterday from San Francisco. General Passenger Agent J. J. Byrne of the Southern California Railway com pany, is one his way to Chicago to at tend a meeting of the traffic association. C. H. Olmstead, a large railroad con tractor of Portland, Ore., who has been here several weeks, left yesterday for El Paso, where he will put In a bid for some work for the Texas and Pacific railway. City Ticket Agent McGee of the South ern California railway, who was injured while riding on a street car a few days ago. Is still unable to attend to busi ness. A. L. Frank, the well known million aire ticket broker of Chicago, is spend ing a few days In the city. He has been touring California for pleasure and will remain here until after Fiesta. ARIZONA LAND WILL NOT LONG LACK FOR WATER Prospectors Continue to Locate Good Mines Which Capitalists Are Proceeding to Develop YUMA. April 13— (Regular Correspond ence.) After a trip over the intended route of the proposed Ohio canal. Judge George W. Holcomb and C. O. McCar roll, the promoters, say that they are entirely satisfied as to the feasibility of the enterprise. A sufficient fall can be secured to irrigate all lands tributary to the canal, the main ditch of which will be eighteen miles in length and which will furnish water for 20,000 to 30,000 acres of rich valley land. Picacho continues to boom. The Gol den Dream Is running Its mill steadily day and night on good paying ore; the Capelia mill site has been graded and put In shape for the erection of a mill which IS Shortly eXpeCted froru Chicago. Two Huntington mills have been ordered from Frazer & Chalmers of Chicago for the Golden Dream mines. The Alfonso company have ordered a mill for their property, which Is looking exceedingly well. It Is reported that ex-Senator Dor sey has been successful in his deal with the London parties with whom he has been negotiating for the past six months and that the Dorsey company will short ly erect a 100-stamp mill on their Pica cho mines. Rich strikes have recently been made In the Alturo, the Noonday and the Gol den Dream, ore taken from th" latter running as high as $500 per ton. Picacho Is destined to become one of the greatest mining camps of the west. It has always been considered a district containing enormous bodies of low grade ore, but recent developments show that among its properties are those which will when fully developed equal anything ever dis covered for richness and extent. Superintendent Epes Randolph of the Southern Pacific company, with head quarters at TucEon, A. T., has purchased a one-quarter Interest In the new find of Elchelberger & Gleason, in the Short- Horn mountains. The price paid is known only to parties connected with the deal. Trainmaster Duncan, representing the Interest of Mr. Randolph, accompanied Mr. Gleason to Los Angeles, w here they went during the week for the purpose of purchasing a mill for the property, the mill site having been located at Nor ton's ranch In the Mohawk valley. The Southern Pacific company will establish an agency at Mohawk Summit, the near est point on their line to the new discov ery. B. J. Cooke of Los Angeles and B. J. Helm of Santa Monica, owners of the "Hustlers' Rest," the new find recently discovered in South Yuma, have left for San Francisco, where they intend to purchase a 20-stamp mill to be placed upon the property. Frank Guerra has been selected by the owners of the new Bonanza at Glea son as their superintendent. Messrs. Elchelberger'& Gleason made no mis take in securing the services of Mr. Guer ra, as he is t/he of the most experienced and competent mining men on the coast. Hon. Charles R. Drake of the firm cf Norton & Drake, supply contractors for the Southern Pacific company, with headquarters at Tucson, was with us during the week.

Secretary McKean of the territorial prison has been busily engaged during the week < xperting the books of our va rious county officials. Edward Elchelberger, discoverer of the richest mine in the west, the king of Ari zona, left for a trip east on Wednesday last. Probably one of the fu st pardons grant ed by President McKinley since his in auguration, was given last week to Wm. Brown, a I'nlted States prisoner, sen tenced at Phoenix, May 27, 1896, to four years and seven months and payment of a $500 fine, for the crime of counterfeit ing. The pardon was granted on ac count of the prisoner's 111 health. The people of Yuma were given a rare intellectual treat last Thursday evening by an entertainment given at the Meth odist church by Miss Clara May Russell of Los Angeles.

THE SALT LAKE ROAD Would Penetrate or Flank Twenty Mining Districts We understand, but do not know that we are right, that the liens upon the Short Line roads were foreclosed and that the holders of the Hens are now the owners of the property. If this Is true, we beg to suggest to the new owners that If they would make their property complete, It would be both prudence and business sagacity for them to go to the stuffed money centers of the world, mortgsge their present Hens and hnlld as much more road. One by Deep Creek and thence on the most direct route to Los Angeles; another from Mtlford via BulllonvlUe, De La Mar and Ten Pirate valley to a junction with the main line from this city to Los Angeles, and a branch line from this city to Los Ange les, and a branch to Cedar City, and, If possible, a hundred miles east to the great coal measures tn Ojirfleld county. All that would cost probably $15,000,000. The new roads would pay operating ex penses and return the Investment and Interest In five years. The coal trade, the bullion shipments, the merchandise traffic and the passenger receipts would be sufficient for this. Then their road«i would have a terminus on the sea and they would command the principal trade of Southern California, Southern Neva da, the greater part of Utah and Idaho and the greater proportion of the travel between (Southern California and the eastern states. A part of the same ad vantages could be secured by the Rio Grande Western, but not all of them. We are Bure that no railroad man can, taking a look at the mnp and knowing the situation, fall to see that It Is the very finest showing for, a railroad in vestment in the United States today. Not many know the real situation. The one factor which would promise most would be obscured from eastern eyes. The thought of eastern men would be that such a road would be, for the greater part of its length, a mere bridge across a desert, and that the revenues would have to come from each end of that bridge. To tell them what is true, that along that desert way a railroad would realize more profits than as though It were all rich and highly productive ag ricultural land, would not be believed; but still the fact remains that one pro ductive silver-lead mine Is worth m:>re to a road than a township of highly cul tivated agricultural land. That road would penetrate or flank twenty mining districts, and before the road could be completed It would be clear that South ern Nevada Is the richest mineral region out of doors. It Is needless to repeat what that road would bj; to this city, but, if It were realized, there would not be a real estate owner In the city who would not gladly mortgage all he has to take stock In the enterprise, even If he knew his subscription would result In an absolute gift to the road—Salt Lake Tribune. Wilhemina Asserts Herself On the postage stamps of Holland, Queen Wllhelmlna Is portrayed as a child of 12, with flowing hair and a pe culiarly infantile expression. It Is told, as Illustrating her little majesty's char acter, that at a recent meeting of the cabinet council she interrupted the pro ceedings by informing the assembly! ministers that she was no longer a chil l and could not understand their neglect In allowing the stamps to remain unal tered. The Dutch stamps will in conse quence be changed as soon as it is possi ble to do so. Wllhelmlna is approaching the age when royalty deems Itself old enough to marry, and it Is only natural that she should demand official recogni tion of her nearness to maturity.—New York Times. tJi o t X Yes, pianos, for you cannot aft I ford to ignore this opportunity 4 t to secure a-strictly high-grade 2 X one at the ridiculously low fig- t I ures we are compelled to offer 4 t them at during this + t Ten Days' Closing J £ Our Sa/e t I At Wholesale Cost... t This sale covers every instru- -t X ment in the stock—in'spite of S t manufacturers' protests — and T X includes such first-class and f I strictly high-grade Pianos as i t the i | and | i Steinmay \ % Besides our entire line of me- T Sdium grade Pianos, the Whee- lock, Whitney, Bush & Gerts, X Hinze, Gibson, etc., etc.; all of T f them t \ Strictly Reliable Pianos \ X Each one fully warranted by t X both manufacturer and our- ▼ t selves foa five years.
