HARBOR MOVE
Survey Steamer Umatilla
at San Pedro
A PORTENTOUS ARRIVAL
UNEXPECTED AND MYSTERIOUS
ORDERS TO SAIL
The Next Thirty Day* to Be Occupied
in Work About the Harbor.
What It Means
At a late hour last night the United
States survey steamer Umatilla/ dropped
anchor in Sam Pedro harbor, having
come direct from San Francisco upon a
mission" which Is undoubtedly of special
importance to this section. Although
the officers of the vessel refuse to give
any information as to what has caused
this unexpected move It is more than
intimated that the visit Was to d<o with
the harbor question In; some form.
It is only a couple of months since the
Umatilla was transferred from her ca
pacity as dispatch boat to the control of
the Coast and Geodetic survey, and she
is now under the control of Col. Meinden
hall. chief engineer of the board. The
vessel is commanded by Lieutenant
Louthran, and carries a complement of
eighty men. What the nature of heir
mlslson Us can onlly be conjectured, but
that it is of special Importance is un
doubted. The officers state that they
will remain in port for thirty days or
more, and that they saiftd under special,
and) pi esiima'bly sealed, orders.
Much speculation was Indulged In by
the San Pedro people, and various ru
mors were set afloat It is the general
opinion, from all that could be gathered,
that the vessel has been ordered to the
spot directly by President McKinley,
and that a survey will be made to define
the limits of the inn«r andi outer har
bors, which, has beiem the sticking point
with Secretary Alger in his refusal to
advertise for bids. If such Is the case
the letters and protests recently sent to
the president flrom this locality are evi
dently having their effect.
AN EXCITING RUNAWAY
But Then "All's Well That Ends
Well"
Too much llauor resulted In a befud
dled condition tf Jim McGulre's senses
last Saturday *lght and the aforesall
befuddled condition was directly re
sponsible for a runaway in which he
figured and which for a time threatened
serious consequences both to himself
and his wife and baby. McGuire had been
up town and started to drive to his home
at 240 Bernard street in his buckboard.
His wife and baby were on the seat be
side him.
When he reached Upper Main street
Just In front of the old Mission church,
owing to the boozy condition of his mind,
he mistook the sidewalk for the center
of the road and started in to make his
horse see it the same way as he did.
He had some difficulty in doing this and
finally got the animal so excited that it
started to run away.
At about the first leap the rear end
of the rig struck a telephone pole and
caved in, throwing McGuire headlong
Into the gutter. The horse then started
to run up the street in earnest, with
Mrs. McGuire clinging to the seat with
one arm and to the baby with the
other. Officer Rico, who was patrolling
his beat, heard the noise and hurried to
see what was the matter. He saw the
man lying in the gutter shouting at the
top of his voice, but did not stop to
make any investigation beyond a hasty
glance and then took after the runaway,
hoping to stop the horse, and, if
not successful In this, to be on
hand If anything happened to the
woman. He was relieved when he saw
the rig draw up in front of a house. On
arriving there he found that neither
Mrs. McGuire nor the child had been in
jured. The runaway horse knew when
he had reached home and stopped. On
going back he found McGuire still lying
In the gutter with a badly bruised hip.
With the officer's help he managed to
get home, where he found his wife anx
iously waiting for him.
ANOTHER LOTTERY RAIDED
An Amusing Sign Posted Out by a
Celestial
Officers Fowler and Sparks, who have
been making- it warm for the proprietors
of Chinese lotteries the past few days,
made another haul yesterday. The place
raided was located at 203 Ferguson
alley. The whole outfit in the place, con
sisting of many thousand's ot tickets
and the instruments used in marking
them, was secured to be usedi as evi
dence. This was the first raid which
these officers have made in Chinatown.
Largely through their efforts, it Is
claimed, that all the lottery joints which
were running outside of Chinatown have
been closed up tight, and they now pro
pose to carry the war into the enemy's
own country.
One Chinaman, whose place at 233
Center place, was closed by the officers
several days ago, has posted out an
amusing sign. The Celestial claimed to
be a doctor and used his title in the hope
of drawing suspicion away from the
lottery game which wae running in a
rear room. The sign is painted on a
board' about two feet square and reads:
"Dr. Kan Sing is on a vacation. No
more medicine. Patients go home and
die."
BETHLEHEM INSTITUTIONAL
"And the Lord Added to Them Day
by Day"
At the morning: service of the -Bethle
hem Institutional church the pastor,
Dana W. Bartlett, spoke from the text,
Acts 11:47: "And the Lord added to them
day by day those that were being
saved." Mr. Bartlett said In part: The
burning question of Christendom today
is, how shall the outside world be reach
ed and converted? The great thing is
to get an Indifferent community into
touch with * spiritual church. To do this
there must be used, first, the mttVortu
LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1897
that will bring the people within the
doors and be all things to all men; and in
the second place, a spiritual church,
aplrlt filled, self-dedicated, bearing the
brand of Christ, to receive and welcome
those who know not the Master. In such
a church there will be a daily Increasing
membership composed of truly saved
souls.
In the evening a temperance meeting
was largely attended. Great interest
was manifested and the pastor spoke on
the blight of drink. A number of young
men testified to the power of God to save
from the awful curse, when its hold
seemed fastened on them. A male chor
us furnished several selections.

THE LOST CHRIST
Evangelist Small at the First Chris
tian Church
Yesterday at the First Christian
church large audiences were present at
both services. Evangelist Small at the
morning services preached upon "The
Lost Christ." He said that Christianity
had great power in the beginning of th*
Christian era. This was> not because it
was possessed of great riches, or social
standlng.or the patronage of the mighty.
There must have been some potent influ
ence in human affairs to have accom
plished such wonders. This power
found in the person, the character, the
life of the Son of God. To preach of him
in his wondrous power and beauty is to
accomplish wonders In the purifying of
human life. There were several acces
sions to the church at the morningserv
ices. In the evening the evangelist
preached upon "Why I Am a Member cf
the Christian Church." There were sev
eral more conversions. The meetings
will continue for several days
Normal School Alumni

Angeles State Normial school met in
business sessios at 2 p. m., Saturday, In
the auditorium of that building. After
the transaction of the regular routine,
the following officers were elected to
serve during the ensuing year: Miss
Louise Williams, principal of the Hewitt
street school, was unanimously elected
president; Mr. Dolland, vice-president;
Miss Agnes Elliot, secretary; Mr. Bo
nellc, treasurer; Miss M. Ellen Reavis,
trustee.
A reception' was held in the evening in
the Normal gymnasium, which was
tastefully decorated with, palms, and
flowers, while the numerous Chinese lan
terns added to the general effectiveness.
After the rendition of a shoTt program
those who wished en joyed dancing while
others engaged in competitive games.
Refreshments were served during the
evening.
Burned by a Gasoline Stove
Mrs. Whitman, at 723 Wall street, was
using a gasoline stove yesterday evening
when it exploded, burning her severely
about the neck and arms The flames>
started to blaze up in the kitchen and
threatened the house. An alarm was
turned in at 7 oclock and the department
responded promptly and soon extin
guished the fire. The building wasdam
aged to the extent of about $50. The
property belongs to a Mrs. Pauly.
At the Parks
Yesterday was an ideal day for a visit
to the city parks, and a great many peo
ple embraced the opportunity to spend
the afternoon In that way. The usual
Sunday concert was given at Westlake
by the band. The weather was favor
able for sailing and the boating was
greatly enjoyed. Eastlake, Central and
the other parks were well attended.
The Stomach Cannot Be Freighted
With greater trash than a violent drastic
purgative. True, such a medicine relieves
constipation for the time, but at the ex
pense of great injury to the intestinal
canal, which it both Inflames and weak
ens, thus unfitting it for the performance
of its proper functions. Widely different is
the action of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
a tonic aperient which produces effects
prompt, indeed, but never violent and con
vulsing. The purity of Its botanic ingre
dients, its unobjectionable flavor, its genial
influence upon the mind, and the thorough
ness of its remedial action in cases of con
stipation, liver complaint and dyspepsia,
combine to render it a most desirable fam
ily specific. It Increases both physical
vigor and substance, tranqulllzes and In
vigorates the nervous system and gives an
unwonted relish for the food. A wine

MATRIMONIAL
Marriage Market Booming
During June
SOME ODD ANTIPATHIES
THE OLD TAX UPON BACHELORS
BEING REVIVED
Admiration for the Old Maid but
Condemnation Only for the
Tribe of Bachelors
Prosaic statistics would hardly seem
to have a proper place In the considera
tion of one question relating to the al
ways romantic subject of marriage. Bui
the fiend with a decided penchant for
figures has not been able to withhold his
hand, and long tables have been pre
pared to prove a truth vaguely but gen
erally known.
It has always been supposed that May
Is an unpropltious month for marriages,
and this view is sustained by the official
figures of Los Angeles county as well as
of the tabulated statements returned
from other parts of the United States.
While these returns are irregularly
made, an approximate estimate has
been made which shows that of 1200
marriages in a year the even average
per month would be 100. But Instead of
this average being maintained, June,
the favorite month for marriages, leads
with 174 marriages, January comes next
with 160, December with 139, July
with 124, November with 114, and so on
down to February with 70, May bring
ing up the rear with 49.
The order of popularity of the several
months may be said to apply in the
various parts of the world where the
Anglo-Saxon stock is the predominating
Influence. Climate seems to cut but lit
tle figure, but racial characteristics and
probably racial superstitions have a
marked influence. In Germany April is
the favorite month and October comes
second. In France April is the favorite
month and January second. In Hun
gary February comes first and Novem
ber second. In Italy February first and
November second. In Greece October
comes first and January second. In
Sweden November first and December
second. In Russia the curious fact Is
noted that two months—March and No
vember, corresponding to our Easter
and Chrlstmastide—arc practically
barred from marriages. But in Russia
the average duration of marriages is
highest, with thirty years, and the
United States the least, with nineteen
years. This last is a mere estimate,
however, based on incomplete returns,
the least in Eujrope being Holland, with
twenty-three years.
And while there are fads in favor or"
the time for marriage, there are fads,
too, amounting almost to antipathies,
against marriagoat anytime.
Within recent years. France has
thought it worth while to offer a bonus
to men embarking upon the ocean of
matrimony, and in various states of the
Union it has been proposed to levy a
tax upon all bachelors. It is somewhat
odd that statistics from all quarters of
the globe present annually a steady de
cline in the number of marriages. The
lowest point of matrimonial percentage,
however, has been reached in the Ar
gentine republic, and to combat this
state of affairs the following law went
into effect on the first day of this year:
"Every male from the age of 20 to 80
shall pay a tax until he marries, and
shall pay It once every month. Young
celibates of either sex who shall, without
legitimate motives, reject the addresses
of him or her who may aspire to her or
his hand, and who may continue contu-
maciously unmarried, shall pay the cum
of 500 pesos for the benefit of the young
person who has been so rejected."
* There is nothing very new about this
bachelor tax, and, indeed, it is almost as
old as the .hills. In the Mosaic Mmc,
with only rare exceptions, marriage was
obligatory among the Jews. Lycurgus
treated bachelors with infamy. The
lashing of bachelors was am annual cere
mony, publicly performed in the tempie
of Juno by the. women of Spanta. In
other republics of Greece there were es
tablished penal laws against celibacy.
At Rome a penality was imposed, and
after the seige of Veil CamlHos the
single mien, were forced to marry the
widows of those who had fallen in. de
fense of their country. In B. C. 18, Au
gustus enacted a law known as the Lex
Julia e,t Fapia Poppoca. By it various
penalties were Imposed upon those per
sistent ce.llbaites who refused to raise
children, for the use of the state.
In. farmer times there were numerous
instances in Great Britain of additional
or higher taxes being imposed on bach
elors or widows, but this was done, with
an eye single to an increase. In the rev
enue rather than for any other object.
But while bachelors have been at the
best regarded as very selfish, and use
less members of society, defenders and
admirers of single women have not been
lacking. Th.elr aptitude for single, bles
sedness has not bcien denied, but is being
frankly conceded. It lias ever been pop
ular to attempt to frighten men into
matrimony by teElng them, that no man
ever remained a bachelor without sooner
or later regretting it. Such well mean
ins people forget the words of the grand
old bachelor, St. Paul, who dues not ap
pear to have been moved with regret
when he said: " Iwould that all men
were even as myself. It is good for them
if they abide even as I."
When it is remembered that Michael
Angelo, Bishop Kerr, Isaac Watts, Top
lady, Montgomery, Hern' Tooke., John
Randolph, Washington. Irving, Dr. Muh
lenberg, Baron. Humboldt, James Buch
anan, Samuel Tlld'en, Thadd'eus Stevens,
John J. Whittier and Phillips Brooks
were bachelors, ar.d that many people
lived to bless them for remaining so, the
warning respect that a special tax upon
them is calculated to engender returns.
Many great men have completed, their
best efforts before marriage, and the
union added nothing to their laureiis.
The divorce, courts indicate that ordinary
mortals, averaging them up, do not fare
much better. The trouble is not with
matrimony, but with the selfishness that
instead of being bred out appears to
be being bred in*o people. They think
marriage can take* the place of change of
heiart and character, whereas the char
acteristics that make them miserable
single will enhance the unhapplnejss in
the married condition.

THEOSOPHICAL LECTURES
A Series of Talks Begun in the Local
Headquarters
At Theosophical headquarters, 220%
South Main street, Miss Marie A. Walsh
began yesterday a series of lee tures on
Theosophy. Her subject last evening
was "Unity in All Life." Miss Walsh
said that the great laboratory of nature
was ever busy, working out a divine har
mony with instruments diffßring greatly
in form and character. Many men of
many minds, each contributir.'g his lit
tle in his own way, perhaps entirely
unconscious of the effect of his life and
work on others, do.;s, neverthefless,
sound his own peculiar note, without
which the great harmony would be in
complete. Orj the physical plane the
underlying unity is a fact in nature, well
authenticated by science. We and all
lower forms of life are built of exactly
the same material, hence the kinship.
We are daily interchanging parts, of our
physical and psychical structure in our
contact with our fellow being's. All men
are thus seen to be a part of oursieJves.
On the mental pilars our thoughts
mingle with all the world of thought.
Unity in diversity, and especially unity
as the end and object of what seems to
us a mass of warring units, Is a comfort
ing thought, ar.d reconciles us to what
would otherwise be an irrational and dis
heartening world. Unconsciously we
all aid in the general unity, but most
blessed is he who, by self kr.cwle.cl'ge and
spiritual attainments, arises to that
plane of the cosmic evolution where, he
knows nature's grand plan, and con
sciously takes up a part of the work of
man's upbuilding in co-operation with
the divine powers directing the work.
CITY COUNCIL
The Wheelmen's Petition to Come Up
Today
The city council will meet at lo oclock
this morning. There is considerable
routine business to be transacted, and
some street matters to be attended to.
Street. Superintendent Drain will prob
ably appear before the council, to urge
Immediate action upon his application
for an increase cf his force. The council
will also probably take some official ac
tion on the wheelmen's petition In the
matter of the four-foot dry strip. The
wheelmen ask that a strip four feet wide
be left dry in the middle of the stret for
their accommodation, and have secured
a large number of signers. As against
this, a petition will be presented signed
by 200 women, protesting against this
dry strip on the ground that the dust
raised by the street cars in passing makes
it an intolerable nuisance.
