Yesterday was a great day for sailing
and all the yachts were spreading their

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and withdrawn, resolutions were offered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

TERMINAL ISLAND, July 11.—(Regular

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

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."

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
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

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.

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
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
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

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.
