HELEN BOBS UP AGAIN sbth HAS NOW BEEN HEARD FROM AT SANTA MONICA Secured a Position as Servant Girl and Then Disappeared Simulta neously With Some Jewelry Helen Fink, the notorious deaf mute impostor who visited this city a few weeks ago, and who was written up at the time, has again been heard from at Santa Monica. It will be remembered that she left here secretly in company with a man named Wilson, whom she in troduced as her husband. Incidentally it may be remarked that Miss Fink, or Mrs. Wilson, as she called herself, forgot to pay numerous bills which she had contracted while In the city. It seems that on going to Santa Monica Miss Fink dropped her erstwhile hus band and again posed as a maiden by the name of plain Miss Wilson. Perhaps nothing more would have been heard of the woman had not Detective Goodman made it his business to watch her move ments. Her first act on reaching the seaside resort was to engages room for a week at the Palace lodging house, of course not paying for it In advance. After spending one night there she did not show up again, and here the laxity of memory which has characterized her everywhere was manifested, and she forgot to return the key to her room. The next place visited was the Santa Monica hotel, where she secured a posi tion as chambermaid. She had fully recovered both her speech and hearing by this time, and she used her tongue greatly to the annoyance of those who were forced to listen to her long tales of misfortune. Miss Fink did not prove a good chambermaid, and at the end of two days was discharged. She then applied to the Woman's l Chris tian Temperance union for assistance. Her story had the effect of gaining the sympathy of the leaders, and they were anxious to assist her. Finally a place was secured for her to work in a family. Miss Fink started to work, but proved a poor servant. However she was en dured. At the end of a week she disap peared, and did not return. Her ab sence was explained when it was learned that several articles of jewelry belong ing to the family had disappeared. The matter was reported to the constable at Santa Monica, but nothing has since been heard of the woman, and It is safe to say that she has got out of the country by this time. TWENTY YEARS AGO JUNE 23, 1877 The Piute Indians decided- not to Join the Nez Perces on the war path. The government officers and troops abandoned the post at Sitka, and the people there were apprehensive of In dian troubles. Many citiea in the Undted States were raising money and supplies for the peo ple rendered homeless by the great Are at St. John, N. B. Information reached New Tork that "Boss" Tweed had $2,000,000 to his credit in England, and that he was only wait ing his discharge to rejoin his confeder ates and embark with them in large speculations in Madrid. The people subscribed for $800,000 worth of the new 4 per cent bonds. Russia was expected to propose a tem porary occupation of Constantinople. England mobilized 150,000 men for ser vice in Egypt—the first move she made in the European crisis. The czar assured Prince Milan that Servia might always reckon on. his Sym pathies. The Austrian government announcej that it considered' the treaty oS Paris broken by the action of Russia and Rou mania. The market report said that onions were "strong" at $email@example.com. They are usu ally strong at any price. Thirty bodies had been uncovered from the ruins of the St. John fire ,ana thirty more persons were reported miss ing. In the suit of the government to re cover $150,000 tax on income, the defend ant filed his answer that he received no such income. The war party in England was very much In evidence. Work was in progress on the new bridge across the Colorado river. L. Wolfskill offered semi-tropicai fruit trees for sale. Including the "navel or seedless" orange. Mr. Prudent Beaudry bought L'Unlon, the local organ of the French people. The East Los Angeles LlteTary club gave a public exhibition, "reflecting great credit upon thos>e who took part in It." A committee of Boston ladies, repre senting the Woman's Temperance un ion, waited on Mayor Prince of that city with a petition requesting that no in toxicating liquors be used at the ban quet to lie given in honor of President Hayes. The mayor denied the request. The office of the Grand Trunk railway at Montreal was robbed ot $50,000. H. M. Johnston added a fine race track to the attractions of East Los Angeles, Which he named Ela park. "The initials of East Los Angeles sug gested the concise and poetic designation of 'Ela' for that boautiful suburb." H. C. Wiley was mentioned as the Re publican candidate for sheriff. Mr. M. A. Trmpleton and Miss May Cannon were married. A local pap"r published the valedic tory address by Miss Birdie Austin of the senior class of the high school. It began, "When Caesar crossed the Ru bicon." CALIFORNIA OPINION The Curfew Ordinance The Los Angeles curfew ordinance has gone into effect, and several children, found on the streets afier 11 oelock ir; the evening have been promptly haled to the city cage. It Is always a hopeful sign when people strive to bring up tin ir young folks- in the light way. It may be suggested, however, that good exam ple is quite as Important for the proper training of youth as coercive measures. — San Diego Union.

It's No Use The Republican newspaper* In San Francisco are trying to do all they can to throw cold water on the coming visit of William J. Bryan.

He electrified people along the north shore boulevards Monday by making his debut on a bicycle. The pride of the silver Democracy made good progress in his first public as a cyclist. For several weeks he has been under going the Kneipp trea-tment for threat ened locomotor ataxia —an. affliction which places Che lower lirntw at times beyond coT.'tro). Traimping around in the dew-kle»ed grass in the early morn in the Trilby act was too tame for tihe ex-governor, so the doofor prci?cribed' a bicycle, and the Idea met with Instant favor. The ex-governor has recently improved In health sufficiently to take the-first de gree on a wheel. An assistant walked at his sid*. but after riding a few rods Mr. Aitgeld gained, confidence and went alone. Then he realized the predica ment, mentioned in Rocky mountain lit erature, of the hunter who had the 1 bear by the talL He was afraid to let go. The wheels whizzed at a 16 to 1 revolu tion. The attempt to maintain the gub ernatorial equilibrium resulted in a zig zag specialty. Scorchers fled, mothers hurried their children to safety and the park policemen got Teady for emer gency dluty.—Chicago Times-Herald. The Wheel in Central Africa The pioneer cycling trip to Central frica has just been reported by the Brit ish consul in Uganda. It was made by a missionary, who mounted his wheeLat the Indian ocean and pedaled all the way to the Victoria Nyar.za, a distance of about 600 miles. Of course the na tives were astonished, to put it mildly. They regarded the cyclist as a necro mancer. The thing first to be wondered at in this remarkable journey is that it was feasible. Roads In this country, even In the Empire state, are not uni formly good, but in the heart of the Dark Continent this missionary found the riding of his wheel and easy and pleasant task. The wagon road over which tons of steamboat machinery have been drawn was the route followed by the missionary and he found, it firm and smooth all the way.—New York Tnmes. The Colonel's Preference "I suppose," said the girl who affects literature, "that you are fond of some thing now and then in the Scotch line." "Of cose," replied Colonel Btllwell. "Rut Isn't the time foh that sort of thing past?" "You mean It has had its day, like so many other fads?" "No, don't mistake me. I wouldn't think of any such disrespect.

Not Domestic The tobacconist was sitting on the front porch enjoying a quiet smoke when the census taker came along.

"No," said the cigar dealer, absent mindly, "she's imported."—Chicago Times-Herald. NOW THAT A BICYCLE BUILT FOB TWO IS THE RAGE IT IS INTERESTING TO REMARK ITS PROTOTYPE. THE UPPER PICTURE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN 30 YEARS AGO. LOS ANGELES HERALD* WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 2% tm RAILROAD EMPLOYES ANXIOUS OVER THE RESULT OF THE CONSOLIDATION Local Clerks Fearful of their Posi tions—The Endeavorers Are Coming—Personals The consolidation of the Atlantic and Pacific offices with the Santa Fe office in this city, which Is to. take place on the first of next month, is causing con siderable anxiety among the employes in the local office, who are fearful that the change will cost a good many of them their positions. The general offices of the Atlantic and Pacific, which have been located at Al buquerque, will be moved here, and by the consolidation the work of the two offices can doubtless be carried on by a much smaller force than has formerly been required. In this case several men will probably be laid off. Whether this will affect local employes or whether the reductions in the force will be made from the other end is not known. At any rate, local employes are await ing the result of the consolidation with considerable anxiety. ENDEAVORERS COMING The Christian Endeavorers who ex pect to attend the convention have al ready begun to arrive, and the railroad companies report that their Pullman fa cilities are taxed to their utmost ca pacity handling the crowds over east ern roads. Yesterday morning word was received here that thirty-six Pull mans on the Santa Fe alone had been started out of Chicago for this city. The Central Pacific, Great Northern and Northern Pacific lines also report a heavy sale of tickets. PERSONAL NOTES Assistant General Passenger Agent A. D. Shepard of the Southern Pacific left yesterday morning for San- Francisco. General Freight Agent E. E. Cham bers of the Southern California railway has returned from Albuquerque, where he went last week in company with Man ager Nevin. George T. Morgan, traveling passen ger agent for the Anchor Line of United States mail steamers, with headquarters in New Tork, is in the city on a business trip. A Mean Thing "Now listen to this," she said Jubi lantly, "and then make your vile Jokes about woman's inability to refrain from talking, if you dare." "Proceed," he said resignedly, and she read an article about a New Jersey wo man who made a vow that she would never speak another word until she could vote and kept it for years. "There was a woman of determina tion," she said in conclusion. "Yes, I have heard something about that case," he returned' quietly. "After she made that vow and showed a deter mination to keep it, her husband be came one of the most determined oppo nents of woman's suffrage in the whole state." She said he was a mean thing, and perhaps she was right.—Washington Evening Star. An Ideal Spelling Course First, as to oral and written, column and sentence spelling, I shall say only this, that the wise teacher will acquaint herself with as many methods and de vices as possible, and change from one to the other, in order to relieve the tedium and to meet the needs of indi vidual children. Before all, she will be aware of running off at a tangent with any particular method, because none yet discovered has proved a panacea. Sec ond, under no circumstances should more than fifteen minutes dally be de voted to the subject. Whatever benefit the pupils receive from their instruction in spelling will be obtained witnin this period. Third, I would recommend that the words be carefully graded, not only in regard to orthographical difficulties, but In accordance with the vocabulary of the child as well. In this way the course In spelling might become as sys tematic as in other subjects. Fourth, precedence should be given to common words, while technical and unusual words should be taught incidentally. THIS IS A TANDEM YEAR By excluding words of the latter classes, the course would be materially abridged, and the chances of producing good, prac tical spellers proportionately increased. Fifth, the course should be further abridged by excluding words that con tain no catch, i. c., which naturally spell themselves. My researches on this point would Indi cate that more than half the common words belong to this category, and con sequently need not be studied. The ideal ground to be covered In spelling would be represented, therefore, by a carefully graded list of the common words most liable to be misspelled. The number of words In this list, according to my esti mate, would be between six and 6«ven thousand.—Dr. J. M. Rice in the Forum. YORRICK ON THE SITUATION Members of the American "begat fam ily" will now give their undivided atten tion to Cuba and Hawaii, while the trusts pick their pockets. If It be true that the proposed annex ation of Hawaii is an administration dodge, intended to divert public atten tion from the Cuban question, the job was put up in vain. It is practically certain that the Hawaiian treaty will fall short of receiving the necessary two-thirds vote. But whether the is lands are annexed or whether they are not, the Cuban question cannot be relegated to the background. The peo ple of this country will never be satis fled until it Is settled and settled right. Many of your readers think that both questions—Cuba and Hawaii —are be ing blown to a white heat Just now to prevent the American people from ex amining their own "larder." The profits of the coal trust last year were 171.000,000, a little over $1 taken from every man, woman anil child in the United States. Tho profits of three of the leading trusts—coal, sugar and coffee—last year were $110,000,000. There are 400 trusts In the United States, each taking profit from the people. Anything taken from the peo ple without an equivalent is robbery. No wonder the administration press keeps on calling to the people to look into the other fellow's back yard. When Napoleon was in Egypt they sent him word that revolution was threatened at home, and that Paris was a howling mob. The little corporal sent back or ders to "gild the dome"—and since re cent openings of the book of trusts, the subsidy dailies have been double-leading Cuba and Hawaii—Gilding the domel With the greedy fingers of 400 trusts rifling our pockets, we are told to con done the home-hold-up, and look at the sufferings of Don Sancho Pedro and the Sadwichers! I the meatime, the lower "house of Reed" sits with its thumbs In its arm pits, waiting for the procession to reach the sugar-steal grand-stand—and while over 200 members sit and look holes In the floor, Thomas Braclcett entertains them thusly: Speaker Reed takes the chair and says: "I will please come to order. "I don't believe in the efficacy of pray er, so I will dispense with it today. "The records of the previous meeting are considered read and approved. "There is no unfinished business on hand, and even if there were. I do not consider my self a quorum at this stage of the game. "Did I hear a motion to adjourn ? Well, I should remark, for my hearing is very acute, and when it comes to ad journing I am a quorum from Quorum ville. "If I am in favor of adjourning I will please signify it by saying 'aye.' If I am opposed I don't know myself. "I have It. I stand adjourned." And while this great American farce goes on, the dupes who were harangued last autumn by Boork Cochran. Inger- I soli and Depew, are told to keep their eyes glued to the Spreckels sugar or chard and the antics of Weyler. ALICE P. YORRICK. Taken to Whittier Several weeks ago a little boy named Charlie Pruden, who lives at Redondo, was brought into court by his mother, ! who claimed that he was an incorrigible. : The lad was committed to Whittier, but I the school was full at the time, and he was refused admission. Lately he ran away from home again, but was caught and recommitted to the reform school, whither he was taken yesterday after noon. BOARD HAS ARRIVED SOLDIERS' HOME MANAGERS AT SANTA MONICA Gen. Birmingham Sustains a Painful Injury While Alighting From ji Electric Car The special car containing the national board of Soldiers' home managers pass ed through this city yesterday morn ing en route to Santa Monica over the Santa Fe, On arriving there they went to the Arcadia hotel. The members of the party are General W. B. Franklin, president, his wife, daughter and two nephews; Major J. M. Birmingham, general treasurer; General Henderson, wife and daughter of Illinois; General McMahon of New York, General Ander son and wife of Ohio, Colonel Brown, inspector-general; General A. W. Bar rett and wife of California, George Pat rick, secretary. A painful accident happened to Major Birmingham at the Soldiers' home. He and General Barrett left Santa Monica on the electric line, the other members of the party concluding not to go up to the home until today. When near the home General Birmingham stepped off the car, which had stopped on a switch. He did not notice a car coming in the op posite direction from Los Angeles, and it Btruck him, knocking him down and running over his foot, which was quite badly crushed. He was taken to the hospital at the home, where his injuries were treated. He is not thought to have been seriously hurt, although the bruise was very painful. The board will meet at the home this morning for the annual inspection. The plans as laid out are to return to the city Thursday morning and go to Mount Lowe that day. Thursday evening the party will take the train for the north. The Illegality of Pooling by Railroads In contemplating the alternative which will be forced upon the railway compan ies if the supreme court decision De main tained, it is proper to say that while pool ing has been commended and resorted to abroad, was recommended by the Cullom committee, and has been en dorsed by the most eminent railway ex perts of this and other countries, tt re mains forbidden here by law. If It con tinue forbidden,and the railways are to be interdicted from forming traffic asso ciations, what remains for railways and public protection, in their mutual rela tions? If the railway companies may not meet and agree upon mutual rates, fares, rules, conditions, classifications, tickets, liabilities for persons and property, ex cursion rates for great public occasions, times of trains, etc., in what condition are they or the public to be left? The resultant differences of condition would Introduce more uncertainties into all commercial conditions, would lead to more preferences and discriminations, and constitute a greater constraint of trade than if competitive lines agreed to and published common rates, fares and rules. Forwarders and receivers and travelers engaged In actual contact with this problem all know that practical freedom of trade Is not to be obtained by lts legal refutation, and that the liberty of the reasonable contract, which has. from time immemorial. Justified proper agreements, has secured that parity of railway conditions which is the first essential of freedom of trade, the re moval of restraint, and the stoppage of favoritism—Mr. George R.

AFTER THE HOLLAND BOAT Two TJnsnocessful Attempts to Steal Bar Flans Freah mystery envelops the cigar shaiped craft floating beside the docks at Lewis Nixon's shipyard at Elisabeth port, N. J. A bold attempt ha* been made to steal the plane of this submarine craft, launohedlee* than four weeks ago. The evidence seem* to Indicate that It as the work of an agent of a foreign gov ernment. About the middle of March a man who had got employment at the yard* was found Inside tine boat at the noon hour making sketches. He was dismissed' at once, and orders* were glvear to let only the most trusted men approach the craft. The purpose of th'lev man was never explained, andi the belief exists that he was the agent of a foreign gov ernment. The hast effort was a more preitenttoua one, and has been kept from the police, though the thief got about 1260 in his effort to steal the plans of the submarine boat. ' A few day* ago the company received through the mails an envelope contain ing the papers which had been stolen. Ais they were not the plans of the sub marine boat, the thief had consideration enough to return them. It has been stated over and over that the Holland submarine boat would' go in commission under the flag of the Cuban republic. AH that ts> awaited, say dis patches from Washington, ie the recog nition of the belligerent rights of the Cuban insurgents by the administration. High officials at the navy, department have admitted that the new submarine destroyer has been built for this pur pose. The United States government has not authorized' the construction of the ves sel, nor has aeiy other nation done so. Thts work has been rushed. Mr. Nixon says he does not know where the vessel Is to go, or what flag she Is to fly, and the officers of the Holland! Submarine Boat company in this city declare they have nothing to say about her except that she will be sent to Washington, to be exhibited to members of congress and to the naval authorities.—New York Herald.
