CHAUTAUQUA Much Wisdom Dispensed at Long Beach DEPARTMENTS AND LEADERS LECTURES OF INTEREST BY ABLE MEN A Large Crowd, Fine Music and Bare Advantages for Summer Study Wis Chautauqua Assembly for 1897 may now be considered to be fairly started, though there are yet the odds and ends of organization to be gathered firmly In hand and some minor details that need attention. The departments as arranged are as follows: Zoology, Professor McFar land, of Stanford University; languages*, Professor Bissell, of Pomona college; mathematics, Professor Hamilton, of Throop Polytechnic institute; art, L. E. Garden-'Macleod, of Los Angeles; music, Professor Fillmore, of Claremont col lege; college of commerce, Professor Cross, of the University of Southern Cal ifornia; Sloyd. Professor Lunt; home training for children, Miss Maty M. French; physical education. Professor Howland; reading and voice develop ment, Miss Helen Wlllard Merritt; Old Testament prophecy, Rev. C. P. Dorland; life of Christ and New Testament his tory, Dr. W. A. Wright; normal course for Sunday school ~teachers, James O. Blakeley. The classes opened with a smaller at tendance than was anticipated, but it is believed by this morning there will be an increase in numbers and that the work will begin in earnest. The audience at the pavilion last even ing was the largest ever seen here on an opening night, and the lecture by Mr. Brwln gave very general satisfaction. The speaker introduced his subject with the childhood of Jesus and pro ceeded from that to the characteristics of children of all nations and climes. The subject was illustrated with one hundred and fifty reproductions from the old masters- and eminent artists of the world. . The devotional exercises yesterday morning were conducted by Rev; Alfred Inwood, pastor of the M. E. church, af ter which James A. Blakeley conducted what may be termed a normal course of study on the gospels, on normal methods by a thoroughly equipped instructor. This course deals specifically with the gospels by analysis, the principal events being chiefly considered, making the ex ercise by topics a leading feature. The story of the gospels is given as a related order of events and the journey ings of Jesus with time, place and his tory pertaining to each, are illustrated with an outline chart. This course is an invaluable aid in equipping teachers for Sunday school work. The class in Old Testament study con ducted by Rev. C. P. Dorland followed at 9 oclock, the general topic being the foreshadowing of Christ. The subject was opened by a refer ence to the sources of information out side the Bible, such as Assyrian and Babylonian Inscriptions, the Tel-el- Amorna tablets and the discoveries in Palestine and Syria. Mr, Dorland gave an interesting ac count of a discovery made by a peasant woman in the year 1887, on the east bank of the Nile, of a clay tablet covered with Babylonian cuneiform inscriptions. This proved to be a record of the time of Amenophis IV, a king of the eight eenth Egyptian dynasty, containing a record of the wars of the king, in his revolting provinces through Palestine and Syria; accounts of military com manders, travelers and their wives con cerning the affairs of government, re ligious ideas, customs and social institu tions of the people. These tablets give a history of the condition of Palestine two hundred years before Moses and threw a flood of light upon ancient Bibli history. They explain many of the ob scure references in the Old Testament that have long been questions of dis pute among Biblical scholars and ar chaeologists. An extended account of this discovery may be found in the Ed lnburg Review of July, 1893. Mr. Dorland then took up the relation of the Hebrews to the Babylonians'and other Semitic nations and the original Inhabitants of Canaan, the origin of Se mitic worship, the relation of tribes and tribal gods and the polytheistic ideas of the races before Moses. The study on the life of Christ con ducted, by Dr. Wright covered in out line Messianic prophecy; the prepara tion of the world for Christ and the con ditions in his time; his birth, presenta tion in the temple, early life and sur roundings, concluding with che period ushering in his ministry. AFTERNOON SESSION The exercises of the afternoon opened with a musical prelude by Misuses Jessie B. Mills and Miss Kate Condit. Miss Mills sang Haydn's "Mermaid's Song," Smith's "Dv Bist Wie Eineßlume" and Rudersdorff's "Maying." Mies Condit rendered Nevrin's "Shepherds All and Maidens Fair." The young ladies are both pupils of Claremont college and certainly do their instructors proud. Miss Mills posesses a sweet, vibrant voice with excellent tone quality and she uses it with Judgment and expression. She is quite young and Judging by the present evidence of talent has a prom ising future before her. Miss Oondit's handling of her instru ment displays thorough training and *ympathetic expression in her execution. At the conclusion of the prelude Dr. Weller introduced the speaker of the afternoon, Dr. F. M. McFarland, who Is a young man, apparently not over twen ty-five years. He speaks rapidly and Is evidently so familiar with the study of biology that he Is embarrassed some what in putting his technical knowledge In popular form to be understood by an ordinary audience. He took his degree In Germany and is now professor of ■oology in Stanford. The lecture was the first of a series of three to be given this week Hi connec tion with laboratory work, with the use of the simple and compound microscope. The speaker outlined the development ef the cell theory as enunciated by the discoveries of Schleiden and Schwamm, sixty years ago. This Is the most im portant generalisation of modern biol ogy known, and has furnished the found ation upon which the countless discov- erles of recent times in this field has been built. The cell In its elementary con stituents is made up of two living parts associated together, the nucleus and the protoplasm. All living organisms, whether animal or plant, are made up of such elements associated together in an aggregate. In the protozoa or unicellular animals is to be found the clue to many of the complex physiological problems which are presented in the life of the multi cellular forms. In the latter differentia tion of structure and specialisation ot function have led to profound modifica tions of the phenomena of life in the lower forms, A brief account of the structure of the typical cell and of the functions of the protoplasm and nuc leus was followed by a discussion of the experimental methods used to determine them. So nutrition and growth is found to be dependent upon the united' action of the nucleus and protoplasm, while movement is carried out independently of the nucleus by the protoplasmic body alone. In the multiplication of the cell the lequal division of the nucleus sub stance appears to be the main end sought and this leads to the inference that the nucleus may be the structure which de termines the hereditary characteristics. The deduction which the speaker sought to impress on his audience was that the universe is governed by lnex- # orable law and he who finds out this truth and uses it will have the fullest and richest life. After the close of the lecture Professor Cross gave an Instructive lecture on "Stenography" in the pavilion, and Mies Addle S. Murphy lectured on "Physical Culture" in Chautauqua hall, and Mrs. Rice instructed her class of children in music at the same hour. The exercises close with the concert given by Miss Ellen Beach Yaw. • The following is the program for to day: AT CHAUTAUQUA HALL In main room—Miss Rice 8 to 10 a. m.; Prof. Cook, Physiology, 11 to 12; Miss Merritt, 5 to 6 p. m.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 2t, 1897 WYCHE'S WOES Are Aired Before the Police Commission A DAY OF POSTPONEMENTS NO ACTION TAKEN ON BUTLER'S APPLICATION The Commission Prefers to Act With a Full Board—Some License Business Transacted When the police commission met yes terday the presence of William Wyche, the Spring street piano mover, who has preferred charges against Police Officer Miles Long indicated that a lively and salacious session would result. But there were no witnesses present and the few members of the board in attendance preferred that the entire commission be present before opening the case. Mayor Snyder presided and Messrs. Preuss and Wyman did the rest. Transfers of saloon licens-es were made as follows: To J. J. Eberharty, at No. 215 West Fifth street, from Philip Slater. Charles Plrkenbach at No. 801 South Olive street to Paul Bogues, Jr. From Benjamin J. Gardiner of No. 117 West Third street to Al Levy. From Davis & Sadler, No. 222 Commer cial street, to Rudolph Hirschfleld. J. E. Waldeck was granted retail liquor license for No. 328 South Spring street. The application of H. M. Butler for a transfer of saloon license from M. Breen, at 141 North Main to 115 North Main street, met with a decided protest from a number of the adjacent property own ers. James W. Hellman addressed the board at length In favor of Mr. Butler, whom he recommended as a proper per son in every respect, and claimed that the contemplated removal would be the means of doing away with a low place. Commissioner Preuss expressed a de sire to be consistent; that the board could not afford to stultify itself by granting the application under discus sion when recently it had wholly refused to grant a similar permit for a saloon In the same block. Besides, he, Preuss, had information to the effect that Butler intended to run a steam beer joint, which in his opinion constituted a dive. Mr. Hellman assured the board that Butler wanted to move but a little dis tance further south in the same block; less than a hundred feet from his pres ent place of business, and he, Hellman, would guarantee that Butler would con duct an orderly house. Commissioner Wyman concurred in Commissioner Preuss' view of the mat ter, and asked Butler, who was present, what he had to say about the charge. Butler stated that he could not afford to manage a rowdy place; he had in vested JSOOO there, and it was impossible to influence him to do other than right. The matter was finally continued for one week upon motion of Commissioner Wyman. Application of O. A. Valla for a trans fer from 416 North Main 6treet to First street was referred to Chief Glass. The petition for a permit to construct a pistol and rifle range under their Spring street building by the Los An geles Athletic club was granted. Application for liquor license by Isa dore Lowenthai at 106 Court street, re ferred to Chief Glass. Henry Wlnnen was granted permit to carry a pistol. The applications of George Willard and John W. Dunn to be appointed spec ial policemen were received and their re quests granted. William Wyche ,the piano mover, who has made sensational charges reflecting upon the official integrity of Police Offi cer Long, presented to the board a se ries of charges in which he intimates that Long endeavored to extort money from him. Wyche maintains that Long "sought to induce him" to become ac quainted with Hattie Mann and sustain improper relations with her in order to enable Wyche's wife to obtain a divlree. Wyche admits having separated from his wife eleven months ago, at which time Mrs. Wyche seemed anxious to secure a divorce from him. The board listened patiently to the reading of the charges, upon the conclu sion of which the investigation was con tinued until next Tuesday morning at 9 oclock. Bernal's Claim A petition was filed with the city clerk yesterday by Frank Bernal, praying that the city sell a certain piece of land situated near the corner of the Mission road and Gallardo street. Bernal claims to have lived on the property for a numebr of years, but the city has an interest in it, and he wants sale made at public auction to enable him to buy it in and perfect his title to the premises. The Board of Equalization The city board of equalization met yes terday morning and began its labors by reading volumes A and B of the assess ment roll. The board will be occupied by those readings during the next two weeks, at which time it will be in a po sition to listen to the protests of prop erty owners.

After the ceremony the wedding party accompanied the bride and groom tc the home of the bride at 138 North ave nue, where a wedding dinner was served. The newly wedded couple left for their new home In San Bernardino on the evening' train.. The Last Medal The committee appointed by General C. F. A. Last on rules and regulations to govern the shoots for the diamond medal offered by him to the best shot In the First brigade, consisting of Col. Berry, Major Last, and Lieut. G. C. Thaxter, of Redlar.ds, are at work completing ar rangements for what promises'to be the greatest competition shoot ever held in Southern California. The drafting of these rules was left by the committee to Regimental Inspector of Rifle Practice Lieut. G. C. Thaxter. and he hascompiled the following, which will no doubt be adopted by the other members of the committee. "The first contest will take place at the encampment held at Santa Monica next month and thereafter at each encamp ment and every parade for target prac tice for state decorations until the medal is finally won. "All contestants shall use the arms is sued to them by the state. "Riflemen shall fire five shots each at 200, 300 and 500-yard ranges.

"During the month of February, 1898, thff winners in the contest shall meet and contest for wearing medal until the first encampment marksman." There will probably be about 750 rifle men and 200 revolver men in this con test. The medal is worth $300. "REBEL GEORGE" BACK BUT BEFUSES TO TALK ABOUT HIS CASE Fears That He Might Injure His Chances for Acquittal—Will Try to Establish an Alibi Detective Bradish returned from Spo kane, Wash., yesterday morning, hav ing in charge George Knowlton, alias "Rebel George," who Is wanted here on a charge of swindling I. W. Lord of North Cucamonga and Geo. Bouren out of $10,000 by the gold brick trick. He will be arraigned in court today on a charge of grand larceny. Knowlton. was seen in his cell at the jail yesterday. He seemed In the best of humor and spirits, but absolutely re fused to discuss his case. However, re plies to certain' questions which were asked would indicate that the line of de fense to be set. up by him will be in the nature of an alibi. He occupies one of the strongest tanks In the jail which Is shared by two China men. When, called upon by a reporter he said, as the latter was ushered into his presence: "I suppose that you have come to talk with me about my case-, but I must tell you that I can say nothing whatever about it. I cannot afford to prejudice my case at this stage by talking. "Did I stop at the Van Nuys when I was here a few months ago? Why, I haven't said that I was here a few months ago, have I? "Lord? Bouren? Oh, yes, I rem ember now. They are the people whose names appear on. the complaint, are they 1 not? "No, I have not employed any attorney as yet to look after my interests. You can't employ attorneys without money, and I have none." To all questions Knowlton gave elus lye replies and feigned the densest ig norance as to his case. A NOVEL BRIDGE jlt Will Offer No Obstruction to Tall- Masted Ships This novel engineering work is called a "Pont Transbordeur," and Is de- signed to fulfill all the purposes of a bridge, while it will offer no obstruction to the passage of ships with towering masts. On each side of the river will be erected a small Eiffel tower, about 170 feet In height, and these towers will be joined at the top with a lattice work bridge upon which lines of rails will be laid. On these rails will run a skeleton platform, which can be pulledifrom sid'; to side by the agency of steam or elec tricity. From this platform, which will be 160 feet above the quays, will depend steel wire ropes which will support at the level of the river banks a slung car riage large enough to accommodate a tramear full of passengers, besides other vehicles It is intended that this novel form of bridge shall be in connection with the tram system at both sides of the river, so that passengers can be carried' across the river without leaving their seats in the cars. The work of building the towers has already been commenced, and it is expected that the bridge will be open for traffic In eighteen months' time. It Is said that the only contriv ance bearing any resemblance to this "Pont Transbordeur" Is In operation at Bilbao.—Chambers' Journal. Undelivered Telegrams Undelivered telegrams at W.

A VAST FIELD OPENED WHEN TRADE WITH MEXICO IS BROUGHT INTO LINE So Thinks Richard Gird, Who Has Been Making Business Investi gations in That Country Richard Gird, who has Just returned from an extensive tour through Mexico and along the shores of the gulf, is very outspoken in his impatience that Amer icans are not more actively engaged In 'opening up trade with Mexico. Mr. Gird has been making Investigation Into the existing condition of things in that country, and although mines and min ing have been his special lines, he has examined carefully into other resources there and the country's needs. When seen yesterday at the chamber of com merce Mr. Gird said: "Now is the time for our merchants to show theirenterprise in trade. There isan unlimited opportunity for Angelenos along the western coast of Mexico. This city is the natural point of supply for that whole section. There is monthly steamer connection now, and we have more than 600 miles advantage in distance over all rival points. It remains for business men to get in their work." '.'American goods are more in de mand now than they ever have been in Mexico. Until the pres ent time the Germans have done all the business there, but the Mexicans have come to recognize the superiority of the American wares. This is true especially of our canned goods, hard ware and machinery. And another feat ure which strongly appeals to the Mex ican is the low cost of American goods. "In ntarly every port you will find a German vessel either taking on or dis charging a cargo. I may say right here that Americans must grant credit to the Mexicans. German merchants grant it for two years as readily as Ameri cans are accustomed to do it for asmany months. The people are good pay, ami there is practically no risk in this credit for this reason: In Mexico there an no bankrupt laws. You never hear of fail ures. A man who fails is never freed from his just debts, but is held to them rigidly—throughout his life, if necessary. "The country' Is very fertile along the coast, and the climate not too hot —not nearly so hot as the San Joaquin Val ley. The mauntains are barren but are full of minerals. The ledges are im mense and run high. While down there I made over 1000 assays and traveled thousands of miles on muleback, and became well acquainted with the coun try. It is inaccessible from an Ameri can point of view, so far as good roads are concerned, but there are well-worn mule trails all through the mountains. When once American capital, genius and enterprise get into that region it will be the biggest mining territory any where. I know of no other section so full of opportunity for men of small capital. To get along, however, it is necessary to understand and, toftome extent, speak the language of the country. There are few Americans there now, and I met but two traveling-men all the while I was down there. "There are some great mines down there, especially about La Paz and San ta Rosalia. The French Rothschilds are gobbling everything in sight in the way of good mines, and the country is bound to boom sooner or later. "What I particularly wish to have known, however, is that our business men don't begin to appreciate the chances they are allowing to slip. We have tremendous advantages offered here and should not iet them pass. "One other thing: The Germans of - fer a sort of reciprocity in trade to the Mexicans. They supply them with nec essary wares and take their dye-woods and other products to foreign markets." Her Wheel Run Into a Trolley Car Mrs. Alice Gregg, a widow, whose home is at Rock Island, 111., was run down and killed' by a Calumet electric car. Mrs Gregg was riding a bicycle when struck, and it Is supposed that death was Instantaneous. She was rid ing a short distance ahead of some friends, when, it is said, her wheel swerved and ran into a car proceeding in the same direction.
