PASADENA. May 27.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) The Idea of building an opera
house near the business center has been
once more revived, this time. It is to be
hoped, with more prospect of its realiza
tion. The last scheme fell flat, never get
ting any further than the elaborate plans
of the architect, but this one has been
started in a more business-like way, and
there Is some prospect of Its reaching the
' stage of actual construction, if no unfore
' seen circumstances arise to thwart the
plans of the promoters. Mr. S. D. Carey,
one of the directors of the Oratorio so
ciety, is Interesting himself in getting the
arrangements under way, and is said to be
backed by ample capital to carry out the
plane proposed, which contemplate a brick
building about 78x85 feet. The walls are to
extend to the height of two stories, though
the building Is to have no second floor,
being arranged to contain only the thea
ter and whatever side, rooms are needful,
the scenery loft to extend above the gen
eral level of the building in the rear, the
same as In the Lowe opera house. Some
unique features are proposed ln the loca
tion and surroundings of the building, ne
gotiations having been begun for acquir
ing the back of six lots which face on
Fair Oaks avenue and six which face on
Raymond avenue, between Green street
and Colorado street, thus making the lo
cation midway between Fair Oaks and
Raymond, the entrance to be on Green
street, and leaving sufficient room so that
the whole building can be surrounded by
a drive twenty-five feet In width. The plot
of ground proposed to be acquired will be
128x135 feet. The whole of the arrange
ments will be thoroughly modern and up
to date and the theater will have accommo
dations for 1500 people. The property as It
stands at present Is ln the hands of vari
ous owners but a number of them have
already signified their willingness to go
into the scheme, and It is thought there
will be no difficulty in getting the whole
of the ground desired for the purpose.
Much Interest Is felt ln militia circles over
the coming election of a major of the
Seventh regiment, to take the place of
Major C. H. Fernald of Santa Paula, re
signed. Capt. N. S. Bangham of Com
pany I of this city is one of the most
prominent candidates for the position, and
in all probability he will be elected. Capt.
Bangham Is an officer who is well known
throughout Southern California for his
efficiency and merit, and when it Is con
sidered that Pasadena has never been
honored by having a regimental offlceir
chosen from her militia, it would seem
to be about time that the militia men here
were recognized.
Capt. Bangham has also made a fine
record as major of the Americus club bat
talion, the chief marching organization of
Southern California, much ofihe efficiency
of that organization being due to his work.
The election is to take place on the 12th
of June, and the battalion Is composed of
the companies at Santa Paula, Ventura,
Santa Ana and San Diego.
The veterans will attend church In a
body on Sunday next. Decoration day. The
following call has been Issued:
"The members of Godfrey post will meet
at post room. Sabbath day. May 30th, at
10:30 a. m. sharp, for the purpose of attend
ing divine services at the Presbyterian
church. We Invite all old soldiers to join
with us, and this Invitation includes every
one of the ex-confederate veterans in and
around Pasadena. Heretofore a limited
few have faithfully joined with us, but
we want all. What we say concerning
Sabbath day services we want to apply
to Memorial day services as well. Let us
"esteem each other as comrades." If there
li a veteran of the gray buried ln our
cemetery we want to decorate his grave.
We shall expect you to be with us."
Wong Fu, the Chinaman who was ar
rested yesterday by Marshal Lacey for
offering to sell lottery tickets, was up be
fore Recorder Rosslter today, and was sen
tenced to pay a tine of $30 or spend as
many days In jail. He evidently thought
It cheaper to do the latter, and he Is now
serving out his sentence.
An order was promulgated from the
offices of the Pasadena and Los Angeles
electric road today by which tickets will
hereafter be sold in ten-ride quantities
for $1. or at the rate of 10 cents for the ride
between here and Los Angeles. There is
some prospect that this rato will be
ohanged yet, at least that is what some
knowing ones are saying, and this Is Inter
preted to mean that the Terminal Is likely
to electrize Its road and put down the fare.
If such a thing should be done the Ter
mlnal company would get a v.cry large
share of the business from the start.
Charles Calvin, who stopped Mr. Hall's
runaway horse, mentioned ln this morn
ing's Herald, while securing the animal
was bitten by a dog which was tied to a
tree on the premises, and had the flesh
of his leg quite badly lacerated. He had It
cauterized afterwards and thinks there
will be no serious effects, but it was not a
very appropriate reward for his services,
and he naturally doesn't feel pleased
over it.
Patrick Toomey, one of the laborers em
ployed ln repairing the electric roadbed,
near South Pasadena, was quite painfully
injured yesterday afternoon while at

the Injured man. It Was entirely a matter
of accident, the trench In which they wen
digging being so narrow that there was
not room for a full awing of their Imple
Mrs. H. M. Gabriel of North Raymond

F B ™' ay Correspond
ence.) T. B. Persinger of Glendora was
bitten by a rattlesnake yesterday morning
while working on a trail northeast f town
He put his hand down. Into a bunch of
brush to remove a stone and the snake
struck him on the hand, embedding both
Its fangs Into the flesh. With great pres
ence of mind, the victim took out his
pocket knife, slashed several gashes In his
hand over the wounded part, squeezed out
all the blood possible, and then killed the
rattler, took out its vitals and bound them
over the wound. A neighbor drove Mr
Persinger to town, and in thirty minutes
after he was bitten he was under the care
of two physicians, who have been watching
over him ever since. They llgated the
bitten arm and gave him medicines to
neutralize the poison. At noon today he
was resting comfortably, with no alarm
ing symptoms, and *he probabilities are
that the heroic measures adopted with the
knife removed enough of the poison to
allow his complete recovery. This is the
first Instance of one being bitten in this
entire region, though dozens of rattlers
are killed every summer in the mountains

SANTA ANA, May 27.—(Regular Corre

ln each Instance having evidently been
removed in the same way and with a
similar If not identical tool. It is thought
that these circumstances furnish a clue,
which. If followed, will lead to the arrest
of the parties guilty of both jobs. Sheriff
Nichols is out of the city today, and pre
