Cleveland, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Glover of Los Angeles, caught twenty sandaba yesterday. Miss Mertie is only 11 years old. and is very proud of her catch. Mrs. Glover nearly equaled her, pulling up nineteen. R. S. Beck of Fairfield, la., with his son. J. M. Beck of Chicago, accompanied by Frank N. Rust of Pasadena and J. B. Eleakmore of Los Angeles, late of Wichita, Kas., are visiting Mr. Beck's nephew, A. C. Norman. Yesterday the visitors caught twenty-three barracuda and a yellowtail on rod and reel. Mr. Campbell of New York caught a 100 --pound tuna with Chris Ringsin yesterday. Henry Mathewson of Brookfield. Mass., a gentleman 67 years of age, with his son, E. J. Mathewson. in the launch Tenderfoot, caught the biggest jewfish this season yes terday. He weighed 313 pounds, and an admiring crowd gathered around to con gratulate the old gentleman on his prowess. P. F. Grover and E, Normander were with the party, but the catch was made by Mr. Mathewson. Yesterday was a great day for sailing and all the yachts were spreading their canvas to the breeze. They presented a very pretty sight in the offing, and many spectators watched the boats from the beach as they vied with each other in an Impromptu race. The Dot and Wave and Defender, Jr., and several others took part, but the Wave seemed to have the best of It, easily outsailing tho namesake of the .Winner of the championship. The Narod made a trip around the island yesterday with the following guests of its owner, E. L. Doran: H. Brantley of St. Louis, S. G. Van Camp ot Indianapolis, G. W. Mead, Jr., and Mr. Doran's brother. They had a most enjoyable voyage, return ing to Avalon about 4 oclock in the after noon. Everyone is delighted with the Innova tion introduced this year by Mr. Dodge in connection with the camera obscura. Through his annunciator he informs the crowd nightly listening to Ihe music of the band the events that will contribute to their amusement the following day, and the "oracle" is already becoming appre ciated. J. Beams, with his son. G. Beatus of Los Angeles, caught three yellowtail of twenty pounds each this morning. Major Donnell. district attorney of Los Angeles, and George Holton, his chief deputy, are spending Sunday in Avalon. Mr. Holton is accompanied by his wife.

The dance in the new ball room of the Metropole was greatly enjoyed b> r the guests, and the onlookers appreciated high ly the galaxy of beauty presented to their view. LONG BEACH LONG BEACH, July 11.-(Regular Cor respondence.) The Methodist camp meet ing was the principal point of interest here yesterday. Dr. Bain of Oakland filled the pulpit at the tabernacle at both morning and evening services, which, with other meetings held during the day, were at tended by large congregations. The meeting held in the city hall on Sat urday evening in the interest of incor poration did not result in anything of practical importance. Motions were m ade and withdrawn, resolutions were offered and voted down, and it was quite evident that there waa an undercurrent of feel ing in opposition to the movement. A committee Qf six was finally appointed to look up the boundary lines and ascertain liow much territory can be taken into the corporation. This committee will report to the meeting to be held on Saturday evening; next, when it will be either ac cepted or rejected. Though the weather was exceedingly warm yesterday in the city, and a large crowd was expected at the beaches, the number of visitors here was quite small. This was something of a disappointment to those who are catering to the appetites of the hungry and thirsty. The season thus far has not met expectations o£ either the hotels or rooming houses. Dr. Viall and family of Pasadena are here among the cottagers for a few •weeks. Mrs. J. A. Paddleford, a resident of Long Beach for the past eleven- years, will go east on Thursday next to make her future home in New York if the climate agrees with her health. J. Custar. wife and daughter, Mrs. Wy eoff and Miss Gusta Shuler of Lima, 0., are stopping at the Bay view. Mrs. Owens and grand-daughter, Delia Finley of Pomona, have rooms at the Bayview house. C. B.

Gartzman of Pasadena will be gin at once the erection of a cottage on Chestnut street, near Third. TERMINAL ISLAND TERMINAL ISLAND, July 11.—(Regular Correspondence.) Yesterday was a lively day at the island. Between 200 and 300 peo ple strolled along the water on the new walk, Inspected the pier, enjoyed the view from the tavern verandah and danced in the pavilion to the music of the Southern California Marine hand. The Mariposa club, composed of thirty nine young men of Los Angeles, came down on the morning train, each member accompanied by a young lady, in a special car provided by the Terminal Railway company. The club is purely social in its aims, the meetings being devoted to danc ing and summer outing parties. There are no lady members—each gentleman Invites the one ha prefers for every occasion. The members are as follows: President, George Panch; treasurer, M. E. Conro;': secretary, E, Ganahl; Henry Rapp. A. K. Goodwin, C. T. Englebrecht, Ed. Burgmtyer, W. I, Fltapatrlck, J.

Willard, manager of the Evening Express, and family. F. A. Gibson and family will occupy the Willard cottage for the season when it Is completed. PASADENA PASADENA, July 11.-(Regular Corre spondence.) Dr. G. F. Mohn was the speaker at the meeting of the Pasadena Theosophical society this evening, taking for his subject "Past, Present and Future of Man." The speaker gave a brief out line of the method of evolution of the hu man race through its 18,000.000 years of residence upon this planet, showing that the whole purpose of evolution was for the perfectibility of the soul. And this is only attained by ever aspiring for the truth ami living up to the highest that we know. In the journey of life no effort is ever lost. As the "Voice of the Silence" says: "Thou canst create this "day' thy chances to thy 'morrow.' In the 'Great Journey' causes sown each hour bear each its harvest of effects, for rigid justice rules the world With mighty sweep of never-erring action it brings to mortals lives of weal or woe, the Karmic progeny of all our former thoughts and deeds." And in this great journey "to live to benefit mankind is the first step."

THE "DREAM OF AGES" A Fulfillment of the Prophesy of Jer- usalem for the Jews According to a recent London cable gram, the "dream of the ages" is about to be fulfilled. Mr. Holman Hunt, whose name Is a good one to conjure with, representing, as he does, ail that is progressive in the realms of literature, silence, art, and the cult human advancement, has start led the world with an amazing: an nouncement. Living as we do in an age when the promulgation of the wildesl ideas—which formerly would have been dismissed .is crazy cor.cr ptions—is. now followed" up with abundant proofs of their feasibil ity, we should as a matter of cold fact be prepared for anything. But even the greatest familiarity with the dumb founding possibilities of this decade has not yet developed in the race that suffi cient fund of personal self-containment which, though equal to almost any emergency, is hardly recepti/j enough for Holman Hunt's latest proposition. We have read, it is* true, the para graphs tshat have gone the rounds of the press about the purchase of magnificent gates, stained windows, frescoes.friezes, and sublime "tessellations" for the new temple at Jerusalem; we have also read how the world's workshops have been ransacked by enthusiastic Hebrews for the rarest specimens of the designer's skill, In order tha.t Solomon's shining ex ample may be paralleled if not eclipsed. We have read a good deal of this sort of thing lately, and with an interest not unmixed with awe. But the latest con tribution to the world's album of revela tions Is not that Mr. Hunt is worrying over the scarcity of cedar in Lebanon, or where the brass Is coming- from to furnish molten chapiters, or the dross less gold for the altars—these are but minor considerations; neither is his mind exercised just now as to the cioud lessnes9 of the title to the lot for the temple, nor even over the question of the purchase of the tow n site of Jerusalem itself. Not at all; he is in treaty with the sultan of Turkey for no less a gigantic deal in realty, than the aequisitionof the whole of Palastine! This scheme is not a fairy tale, though it reads like one. It is a well-considered enterprise, reverently and adroitly ex ploited. For a long time past the He brew colony in Jerusalem has bec-n aug m?nted by the daily arrival Of bands of Jewish pilgrims. Over 30,000 are now harbored within its historic walls—pro phetic forerunners of iti-elr race who, if Mr, Hunt's dream Is to be realized, are but the vanguard of the host who will within the century invest the promised land. The scheme of purchase embraces the entire- territory as defined in its wid est extent by Moses the Lawgiver. What does this- territory consist of? In view of this manifest fulfillment of the dream of the ages, no one can afford to remain in ignorance of the geographical featuris of Palestine. Pages 134 ar.d 135 of Ranel-McNally's- new General Atlas of the World show not only on a large scale—l4x2l inches—the whole of Pales tine from Tarabulus in Lebanon to Gaza, and south to the Egyptian border, but they depict the flanking territory of Syria to the east and the long line of Holy Land littoral washed by the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Its per fection of detail must be seen to be ap preciated. One can almost see the fish erman on Gennesaret. Even a deeper insight into the midnight vigil on the Mount of Olives can be obtained, for a colored plan of modern Jerusalem and its environs is embodied, Full particulars of this great work appear in another column. This atlas is given as a premium with The Herald. Terms on application at the business office. McKinley's Surrender to Platt President McKlnley's course as to New York city politics is very bad. He announced last 1 week, through his newly appointed minister to Spain, that he proposed to do all tiha.t he could to aid in the election- of a Republican mayor for greater New York. That of Itself is bald impertinence and worse. Mr. McKinley is 'not a citizen of New York. He has no business to meddle with its affairs or to try to influence the choice of a mayor. The only way in which he can influence the New York mayoralty is by the appointments he as president may make to the service of tihe United States. He has no more light to ruake those appointments for such a purpose than he has to take money out of the United States treasury and turn it over to Mr. Piatt. Practically, that is what he proposers to do.—New York Times. No Ologies They now call the study of rowing "strokology." The factor that wins races should be called "pluckotogy."—Boston Traveler.

IN OLD MEXICO How the Dingley Bill Af fects the Republic LOS ANGELES RESIDENTS WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING A New Italian Opera Company Which Will Be Seen in the City—"Papa" Schurtz' "Passion Play" Special Correspondence to The Herald. CITY OF MEXICO, July 3.—The rainy season has arrived, generally under stood by the outside world as being the most disagreeable part of the year. Why it should' be co considered is unaccount able except on the ground of ignorance, for to me it is the most delightful part of the year. The rains cleanse the at mosphere, wash out the sewers and de stroy the bad odors which were so prevalent before they came. The im pression that this season of the year is not particularly pleasant in the City of Mexico is emphasized by the exceed ingly small number of arrivals, either for business or pleasure, and the result is that business is comparatively dull and the Inauguration of new enterprises will not begin until fall. This dull season, however, Is not an indication of any material letting up in the tremendous strides- Mexico has made and is making in commerce and civilization. It is simply a breathing spell and a temporary rest in prepara tion for the gigantic efforts' in the fail. The great wave of commercial energy and business enterprise that swept across the North American continent until it met the Pacific ocean on the outer edge of the Golden state will be repeated in Mexico. That Individualism which was so characteristic in the develop ment of the great west, ar.d particularly in California, here finds room for ex pansion unhampered by monopoly, and by laws sectional in character. The northern republic's difficulties have been to the advantage of Mexico. The giant monopolies and class legislation in the way of the tariff are causing an influx of American business men and Ameri can capital into this country that is as astonishing as it is exceedingly gratify ing to those who desire the advance ment of Mexico. The Dingley bill is causing: no little j apprehension. In conversation with an American who has lived- here for years, he said: "There is no sentiment in business, and' the loss of trade to the United States by the enactment of the Dingley bill will be considerable, and other coun tries! ( specially England, will gain a big advantage. The change in the tariff , policy is r.ot a slight one, and its bad , IT. cts upon American importers cannot at this time be estimated. The increased duties upon Mexican products into the United States will undoubtedly lie me' with a like increase by the Mexican gov ernment, the result of which -may en tirely change the current of trade, of political and industrial development." One singular fact which the learned political economists of the United' States i may ponder over is the large number of Inquiries constantly flowing into this republic for business opportunities and the prices of land. A majority of these inquirers repre sent themselves to be worth from $5000 lo $10,000. Under the prevailing condi- I tions in the United States —the unset- \ tied state of currency, with the prospect j of the enactment of tariff schedules j which are best exemplified—a Chinese wall of exclusion —the chances are against the investment of such sums. I do not undertake to explain the reasons that are causing the best elements of the United States to seek new fields for their energies. I simply state the facts. As an illustration of the difference be- ' tween the administration of the laws in the United Slates and Mexico, an inci dent may lie given. Two gentlemen having disposed of co.upons in the regu lar business of brokerage, which had been taken from the Mexican treasury by a dishonest employe, had their prop erty seized to make up the loss sustained by the unlawful abstraction of the cou pons from the government. Justice fol lowed quickly upon the commission of the act; and it is at all times dealt out irrespective of the influence or standing of the guilty partj-. Many instances of a like character might he cited, but the abo»ve is sufficient for the purpose of drawing attention to the fact that there Is absolute confidence in the impartial administration of laws. From this im partial and just interpretation of the laws under Gen. Diaz has grown that absolute confidence in the security of investments and protection. Talking with Mr. E. Bageard, who represents the Orpheum circuit in Mex ico, and who is well known all over the Pacific coast among theatrical people, he says that by the time the Burbank is again ready for use there will be some attempt made to open it with a season of grand opera. A company from Italy direct to this city, comprising seventy people, with an orchestra of thirty and a ballet of twenty, including two pri meria, will open at the Nacional in Sep tember. If proper arrangements can be made the company will visit the coast, mak ing the first stop at Los Angeles. The repertoire comprises all the stand ard operas, including four new ones: "Werther," "Promessi Sposi," "Amico Fritz" and "Maestro dl Gapella." On the opening night "Gismonda" will be given. Among the sopranos of the com pany I noticed 1 the names of Senoritas Nina Mazzi and Linda Montanari, and among the contraltos Emma Sajvlni, with Francesco Colienz as the leading tenor and Giovanni Scoiara as the j basso. A wealthy Israelite is Ihe financial backer of the company, and no expense will be spared for the presentation of grand opera. Mr. Bageard, an old and experienced impressarlo, will look after the general arrangements and prac tically manage the company in this city. The French Opera company had a financial success here, but not an artis tic one. The San Francisco papers went into ecstacles over the artistic merits of that company, but they were more or less of a disappointment here, and if the Italian company is no better they will come in for even greater and'more severe criticism than was bestowed'upon the French company. In addition to the names of Califor nians already mentioned' in a former let ter residing in this city, the following have come under my observation: C. C. Merrill, former resident of Los Angeles, has obtained a contract to make pipe for the city sewer works, now about ready to be undertaken. Many will remember Judge Ignacio Sepulveda, formerly judge of the super ior court of Los Angeles county, lately connected with the United States lega- tion. He is now in active practice of the law, with offices In the Banco Hepoticavlo building. While secretary of the legation he rendered good, service to the American colony. Affable and obliging, he always ready to the utmost of his ability to serve those who called upon him. Without reflecting upon hie successor, Fenton R. McCreeryi who, I understand, had the backing of the California delegation for the position, American interests have sustained a severe loss in the displacement of Judge Sepulveda. A master of the Spanish language, perfectly familiar with the officials of the Mexican government and thoroughly understanding the relations existing between the two governments, the diplomatic service of the United States was elevated' by Judge Sepul vedia's connection with it. His retire ment is universally regretted. Irrespec tive ot politics. George Hetts, well known in Los An geles real estate circles, is here engaged in the newspaper business and is doing well. , Wilils McDaniels, one of the finest, an expert in art glass, is here to stay, and he tcllslme has wonderful prospects of success in this new field. He has had some samples of his work on exhibition, and they have been highly commended. Chas. L. Strange, the architect, with W. F. X. Parker as partner, has estab lished an office and has already con tracts for the erection of three buildings. In this connection it may be stated that i besides the number of large and mag i nificent buildings now in course of con struction, many more are under contem- I platiou Perhaps no better evidence of I the increased civilization and prosperity of Mexico could be given than the | amount of improvements already ac complished and those projected. In the j removal of adobe huts and in their stead ! modern stiuctures, architects will have I a field for the display of their talents, | and Mr. Strange is right in line, sailing ' with the tide. | Another real estate man of Los An- I geles is J. H. Rodenburg. He is now a member of the Real Estate Company of ! Mexico, with otfices in the Hotel Amer | icano. He, too, is pleased with Mexico, ! and is a fair type of the hustlers that did so much to bring Southern California into prominence. Anton Stoetzer Is drumming the city I for the Los Angeles Lithographic com ! pany. His good looks stand him well In ' hand. D. M. Morton Is a blooded fellow, who will be remembered by most of the printing fraternity as a hustler. He is soliciting for the Hull printing house of this city. George R. Dv Bois, who for a short time was a deputy in the district attor ney's office under Dillon, has a transla tion office. He has a contract with the government to translate a book of 1000 paged upon which he is now engaged. All of the principal discourses deliver ed before the Pan-American congress of medicos has been translated by him into English, and several from English to Spanish. He- is establishing a good rep utation as literary and legal translator, ar.d is doing well. Pastor de- Cells, formerly editor of the Los Angeles La Cronica. is private sec retary to President Robinson of the Mexican Central railroad. E. D. de Cardona, a native Califor nlan, is engaged in writing a book on the industries of Mexico for the government. To mention the name of Chas. Hall will bring his Jolly, good-natured face to the memory of many Angelenos. He is agent for the Puebla Brewing com pany. Mr. Gonzales is another Californiar, well known in real eptate circles. He has a real estate office and renting agency on Gante street in the Iturblele block, and is always pleased to see peo ple from Southern California. Old railroad men will remember Theo. L. Eggers, a conductor who used to run out of LO3 Angeles. He has a saloon on the coiner of Gante and San Francisco streets. Jose Herrara, for three years with Lo pez Bros., butchers, In San Fernando, and for a year at Port Los Angeles, is manager of the Colisco hotel, with the exception of the Sanz, the most modern and handsomely furnished house in the city. It Is a great resort for Southern Californians. Mr. Hagadorn, whose initials I do not now recall, is from Pasadena. He is manager of the W. G. Walz company's store, which carries Mexican curiosities, bamboo furniture, lace and drawn work, and other things too numerous to men tion. Papa Schurtz, who has been for two or three months endeavoring to- obtain the consent of the authorities for the production of the "Passion Play," has at last abandoned the idea. A company had been formed, plans for the remodel ing of a building suitable for the presen tation of the above play had been made, but the final refusal of the bishop of this diocese to its production ha 9 sent papa's schemes a-glimmering. He will soon return to Lob Angeles but will come back to Mexico In the fall. The last, but not the least of those whom I now recall from Los Angeles, is Mfss Mary Elliott, a pretty typewriter girl. She works with the Building and Loan company of Mexico. In conclusion, I herewith extend an invitation to all Southern Californians visiting Mexico to call on Skolastlkos, either at the office of the Two Republics or at Calle Fourth de la Provldencia, No. 10. 6KOLASTIKOS. Thought She Had Been Admired Mrs, Julia Ward Howe on one accaslon presented herself at a club of which she is a member, with her bonnet wrong side in front. After some hesitation lest Mrs. Howe should feel hurt, a sister member Informed her ot her mistake. "What a blow to my vanity!" said Mrs. Howe, with an amused smile.

MINES AND MINERS Considerable excitement has resulted from the discovery of good placer ground on the flat' between Randsburg and Goler, says the Randsburg Miner. Bush, Mitchell & Ward have been dry washing for some time near the road leading from Johannesburg to Garlock, George Taylor recently Joined the party, and they went down through a gravel cement some distance, when they struck a tine body c.f auriferous gravel some four fret in depth, resting on bed rock. They were making very good pay all the way down, but when they struck bed rock they found it much better, and one day last week they took out. five ounces of coarse gold. The news of their good luck spread rapidly and it was but a few days until tthe supposed channel was staked off for several miles In length. As yet no other holes have reached bed rock, but in most places the ground prospects from the surface and there can be no doubt about the value of the placer fields, the extent of which are yet unknown. There is every reason to believe it to be a continuation of the famous Goler channel, from which thousands have been taken in the past few years. The gravel on bed rock is identical with that of Goler and In many instances the surface indications are the same. It is right in line for a continuation of the channel and all concede It to be such. So far as explor ations have demonstrated, the new dis trict is from five to seven miles long and one to two miles wide. But since fairly good surface prospects are obtained over a much larger area, It is possible that the new placers may ex pensive than is now supposed. May Queen Machinery Carhart, Saunders & Co., lessees on the- May Queen, on the Laurence townsite, are putting in a steam hoist, and a Wiaft house and ore bins are under course of construction. Several mill runs have been made on ore from the five-foot vein, which was opened up In a drift from the bottom of the 66-foot shaft, the first of the month, with very satisfactory results. The vein, is five feet in width, and can be treated with a fair profit to the company. Abcut fifteen tons have been saved which will be shipped in a few days.—Victor (Col.) Record. Shaft and Dump On Coffee creek, Trinity county, Cal., the Graves Bros., with a ten-inch stream In one week lately washed out 249 ounces of coarse gold, the largest piece being worth $250. The Copper Queen company of Ari zona one year ago was carrying 600 men on lts> pay rolls. It Is now carrying 1200. The legislature ot the state of Wash ington has lately passed bills to prevent the defacement, mutilation or destruc tion of miners' location stakes or notices and providing a penalty clause; extend ing the right of eminent domain to min ing and milling comganies; appointing an inspector of coal mines for the pro tection of coal miners. Judge Bingham, A. A. Warren and N. Davenport of Colton, have taken a six months' bond and lease on the Be atrice and Seraphina mines near Win chester. Three shafts have been sunk, the deepest seventy feet, and the ore av rages $25 a ton. A $90 gold nugget waa founditn Lytle creek canyon recently. Another strike has been made in the Mollie Gibson mine at Aspen, Col., and the shares have gone from 20 cents to 70 cents each. Prior to two years ago, when dividends stopped, there had been divided from this mine among share holders $4,080,000. W r . A. Clark, who Is now in Europe, Is negotiating for the sale of the United Verde copper mine at Jerome, Ariz., to a French syndicate. The output is about 2,000,000 pounds monthly of copper, which it is expected will shortly be in creased to 12,000,000 pounds monthly. There is a dispute going on between the mine owners and mill owners of Cripple Creek over the prices charged for milling low grade ores. There are at Cripple Creek immense bodies of low grade ore in the mines, running from $5 to $10 a ton, which cannot be handled at the prices charged. Some day it will all be worked. An attempt made to reduce the wages of whits miners on the Rand, South Africa, resulted in a riot, in which seven men were killed, and the mine owners have abandoned the scheme of reducing wages. The rates were about $5 a day, and a reduction of about 10 per cent was proposed. The miners have since formed a union. Trade With Cuba A report prepared by Chief Hitchcock of the foreign markets section of the department of agriculture indicates a shrinkage In our trade with Cuba from $102,864,204 In the fiscal year ended June 30, 1893, to about $20,000,000 In the year now nearing its close.
