The only occurrence out of the usual routine of dally happenings was the arrest and pre liminary trial of Woodruff for larceny, hiring a team and wagon, from Fettermari * Sons' livery stable and selling It in Los Angeles in July last. The larger number of the summer camp ers and boarders have returned to their homes, though many are lingering through the month of September, loth to leave the ocean and Its pleasures. Every day brings a few who come for a brief stay, or a com pany of picnickers to spend the day on the beach. Ths dally morning procession of fishers to the pier, to hang over the railing, rod in hand, still keeps up with remarkable regularity and persistence. The fishes, however, have taken themselves off on an ! autumn vacation, and. the catches for a few | clays past have been light by the pier ; anglers and the fishing boats. I The supervisors have not yet taken ac j tion upon the petition for reincorporation presented some time since. It will require j work and the expenditure of considerable money for Long Beach to recover what it | has lost by disincorporation. The streets are in a miserable condition and the park that once was so lovely Is positively pathetic in its present state of neglect and decay. The flowers are dying, piles of rubbish litter the corners, the cypress hedge is untrlmmed and the entire place has an unkempt going-to-decay air. The whale has finally had its teeth placed in the upper jaw, and an odd looking set of molars they are. The roof of the cavern ous mouth has the appearance of being lined with a fur rug. so thick and fine are the bones. It is quite amusing to listen to the conversations carried on around the skeleton of the mammoth creature. In variably the sightseer gazes into the huge Jaw, sizes up the dimensions of the throat and then discusses the plausibility of the Jonah story and the prophet's chances for life after a three days' journey In the In terior of one of this fellow's ancestors. The skeleton of this poor old mammal has been a demonstration in sacred history for many people who have gazed at his re mains this summer. The annual meeting of the directors of the Chautauqua assembly was held today In the Y. M. C. A. hall ln Los Angeles. The election of officers for the coming year was postponed until the first Satur day In November. Profs. Macleod, Crow and Hamilton were elected a committee on nominations, and Profs. Crow, Lunt and Miss Freeman a committee to decide on the time for holding the assembly next year. The principal business of the meet ing, however, was a resolution presented in a graceful and appreciative little speech by Prof. Hamilton, seconded by Prof. Crow, expressing the appreciation of the board for the long and faithful service of Prof. Weller, and presenting him with a check for $100. It was a graceful oourtesy to Prof. Weller on behalf of his co-laborers In the Chautauqua work, and one which he has well earned. The probabilities are that the university extension assembly will be held next year in Long Beach. The supervisors yesterday decided in favor of a majority report In the matter of the tax levy for the new high school building. That means that Long Beach will have the building, the plans for which have been decided upon, unless the oppon ents take action In the matter. A Chautauqua circle was formed last evening consisting of twenty members and the following officers: President, W. W. Lowe; vice president. Prof. Lunt; secre tary and treasurer. Mrs. M. I. Sovereign: chairman of instruction, Mr. Stafford, who will choose his assistants. The first regu lar meeting will be held the first Saturday evening in October.

Sept. 11.-(Rcgular Corre spondence.l Great stories of the number of flsh caught are now rampant; the popu lace are greatly excited over the large number of the piscatorial tribe that are being landed from oft the wharves, and judging from the demand for sacks, flsh are quite plentiful. . M. B. Lewis, a prominent Angelenoi met with quite an adventure here yester day. Accompanied by a fisherman, Mr, Lewis made a trip to the fishing banks. Ar riving on the banks and landing a nnmher of grouper was accomplished all right, but in returning, when about two and a half miles oft shore, the dory which they were in capsized, throwing the two occupants into the water. They were rescued by Andrew Black, a fisherman, who happened to he near at the- time of the accident. Mr. and Mrs. H. Stockwell and Mrs. M. Montgomery returned to their homes in Los Angeles, after several weeks' stay at the beach. F. C. Mulkey of Los Angeles is spending a weeks' vacation at this place. Mrs. E. 8. Hills, wife of E. S.

It weighed nearly ten pounds, and was two feet long and thirteen inches wide. It was one of the largest spec imens ever caught at this place. SAN PEDRO SAN PEDRO, Sept. 11.-(Regular Corre spondence.) Twenty years ago, or less, San Pedro was known its Fayal, a name given It by Portugese fishermen from the old city of Fayal in the Azores Islands. The bay has had three christenings by Spanish navigators. The firsit by Cabrillo. its dis coverer, who named it Bahla de los Humos, "the bay of smokes:" the second by Vis caino, who visited it ln November. 1602, and renamed it Ensenada de San Andres, and last by Cabrera, who came later and gave it the one by which it is now known. Within the memory of many of Its res idents the name of the town was changed from Fayal to that of the bay, San Pedro. Then there were but five houses between Timm's point and Boschke's island, and Capt. Timm's house was built on the hull of an old vessel that had drifted ashore. There were no houses on the hill, and tho surrounding hills were a sheep and cat tle ranch, many leagues in extent. "At low tide," said a son of the country, yet in middle life, "I can remember how my brother and I used to climb out over the rocks to Deadman's Island, which was then much larger than It Is now." San Pedro was a thriving little seaport until the Southern Pacific company built the long pier at Port Los Angeles and drew away the shipping controlled by its enormous interests. Since then it has been waiting patiently for what it is entitled to by nature and the development of the sur rounding country, a harbor of refuge and of commerce. Sooner or later it must come to Its own, though, mayhap, it may be to another generation. The harbor Is the one idea that dom inates the mind of every resident of the place, and he never for a moment loses sight of the end and aim of his existence. It will be remembered that two of the well-known citizens of San Pedro. Messrs. Lem Brunson and Mr. J. McDermott, went to the state of New York some time ago in the interest of a patent harness, which they are having manufactured. During the recent big parade of G. A. R. men they were In Buffalo, and standing at a place on the street where the parade came to a sudden stop on account of the great jam, they happened to be near the carriage containing President McKinley and Sec retary Alger. This was the San Pedro man's opoprtunity to spoil the secretary's fun for that occasion at least. So, "screw ing his courage to the sticking place." Mc- Dermott called out loud enough to be heard: "Give us some information about the San Pedro harbor, Mr. Alger." The secretary started as though a bomb had exploded under his feet, looked around hurriedly, then dropped his head, nor did he raise*lt again until the procession moved on. Even in Buffalo, miles from the Pacific coast, that wretched harbor had sudden ly risen to confront him and dim the glory of the day. This was learned from a pri vate letter written home by Mr. McDer mott. Bravo for the man from San Pedro! George H. ePck of the San Pedro bank has recently purchased a tract of land containing 1400 acres from the Bixy Land company. It is said to be excellent farm ing land and Mr. Peck will subdivide it into 60-acre tracts and place it upon the mar ket. The steam schooner. Capt. Johnson, ar rived yesterday with 200,000 shingles for the San Pedro Lumber company. She will leave today to discharge the remainder of her cargo at Port Los Angeles. The Seaside Social club, composed of leading young people of the town, will give a dancing party this evening at Swin ford's hall. The music will be furnished by Schoneman's orchestra of Los Angeles. Tho Sunday school of the M. E. church had a pleasant picnic on Wednesday out at the German settlement. E. B. Scott, editor of the San Pedro Times, had the misfortune to sprain his knee badly on the occasion of the above picnic, from which he Is unable to attend to business. Will Nicholson and C. R. Sumner have been surveying the bend in the outer harbor belonging to "Crawfish George," from which it is surmised that it has been or will be transferred to a more important, ownership. "Crawfish George" has been ' a resident of the bend twenty years. C. G. Miller, a resident of San Pedro ar.d Wilmington for the past thirty years, died on Monday at Serena. Santa Barbara coun ty. He leaves a widow and three children. Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Brentner have re turned from a bridal trip to San Jacinto. They will make teir home in San Pedro. The Coos Bay arrived in port on Thurs day from San Francisco with passengers and freight. Mrs. J. w. Davis attended a meeting of the W. C. T. U. ln Los Angeles this .week. Rev. E. B. Green, presiding elder of the Los Angeles district, was In San Pedro on Wednesday, arranging for the fourth quar terly meeting of the M. E. church. The Los Angeles Record has attached the office of the American for a debt of $12.50 alleged to be due them for papers offered on subscription with the San Pedro paper. The publisher claims that collections be ing slow, he tendered the Record com pany part of the money, which they re fused and attached his property for the entire amount.

A parlor meeting of the W. C. T. U. was held on Tuesday at the residence of Mrs Cline, which was largely attended. An LOS ANGELES COUNTY PASADENA PASADENA, Sept. 11.—(Regular Corre spondence.) At S:2O tonight It was proved beyond reasonable doubt that Miss Mary E. Johnson of this city and Pomona was killed ln the wreck which occurred at 12:50 yesterday morning on the track of the Denver and Rio Grande and Midland rail ways, near Newcastle, Col. The following paragraph in the Associated Press dispatch in this morning's Herald was the first news which friends and relatives of Miss Johnson in this city received: "Ten bodies were found in the ruins of one ear and four in another. The charred remains ot two women, apparently clasped in each others arms, were found. Their heads and lower limbs were burned off. In the dress bosom of each was found a lady's gold watch, upon one side of which was inscribed: 'From mother to Mamie.'" This, of course, brought grief to friends in this city, as Miss Johnson was thought to have been on the train, on her way home from Kansas, where she has been visiting friends, and also because she was known lo have a watch with this inscription: "From mamma to Mamie." Dispatches entertaining program was given unedr the management of Mrs. P. H. Schwartz. Capt. Larson of the sffhooner Penelope came up by rail from Guaymas. Mexico, this week on a business trip.

Gedney of the geodetic sur vey arrived on Friday and wll cruise around some time in these waters, inspect ing the southern coast. TERMINAL ISLAND TERMINAL ISLAND, Sept. 11.—(Regu lar Correspondence.) Moonlight nights are beautiful, doubtless, everywhere on the face of the earth. But nowhere can they be lovelier than here, not excepting the far famed bay of Naples. The moonbeams re flect a long gleaming pathway out over ihe sea that ends in a wide shimmer of silver at the horizon rim. The long swells roll ln ln a symmetrical line and break into showers of diamonds on the shore. The waves dash In with a force that would seem to bring everything down before I hem and the high tides of the full moon throw the "creeping, crawling foam" far up the bank. What strange anil mystic power Is that this placid planet possesses sailing serenely in the sky above, to lash Into such fury the vast seas of this little earth around which she revolves. All other forces seem puny in comparison anil man but an atom before the awful majesty of the ocean. The bay Is glorious for rowing in the brilliant moonlight that softens every ob ject Into things of beauty. The twinkling lights on the lonely beach pier and San Pedro add to the effect and enhance the beauty of the scene. Tbe dim shapes of tbe distant mountains are spectres of the rugged reality of the day. "If people can not be happy hero," said an enthusiast, "happiness is not possible anywhere." Tomorrow Terminal Island will have its customary amount of Sunday attractions. The Fiesta Park band will be here as usual. I'rof. Raymons will give an exhibition of high and fancy diving and swlmminrr, a lug of war, a half mile professional swim ming race, a tub race, a Mpnte Crlsto act In a sack and the slide for life down the wire from the pier to the raft by Dromio. All this in addition to the fine bathing, beautiful scenery and other attractions of Ihe place, will doubtless bring a large crowd of people to the island. The awning erected below the pier affords a pleasant shade and affords a fine view of the pier and the bathers. Miss M. L. Richards of Pasadena has been a guest at the tavern several days this week. Mrs. M. A. Pierce of the same place spent the day here. Miss McCullough of Los Angeles, was down for the day visiting friends.

It was an Elgin, as was the one found on the head less body. Later dispatches further cor roborate every particular, leaving no ves tige of doubt as to the girl's Identity, unless, which Is highly Improbable, she should have loaned her watch to some other woman. It was given her on her sixteenth birthday. Miss Johnston was 29 years old and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Johnston, who lived up to a year ago on East Col orado street. They removed to Pomona. She leave* here an aunt, Mrs. Annie John ston of North Los Robles avenue, who was recently bereaved ln the death of her daughter Blanche; a sister. Mrs. Will H. !

A LAND SCHEME It is now reported that capital for the improvement of 1053 acres on the Mission road, north of Eastlake park, is now sub scribed, and that operations have been be gun on the scheme of the Interurban com pany, of which Walter Maxwell and J. Thompson of Los Angeles are at the head. The tract will be wonderfully improved. If the company's plans are carried out. and upon each lot a fine villa will be built, it being a rule of the company that buyers must build a structure not under a certain cost. The company will have its own water system. Its own railway and Its own elec tric light and gas, for which the residents will be charged. The lots will be principally of acre in size and larger. Funds have been raised for building a boulevard 120 feet wide also. The railroad to be built may be operated by electricity instead of compressed air. Architect Hugh Todd is busy with plans, for a casino, Sox6o feet, and two stories high, In which will be assem bly room, stage, verandas, dressing rooms and the like. Another building will be 16Sx 60 feet for the company's offices and a car barn and pumping plant, all of mission style and very elaborately beautified.

The elder Haskin was in the city today and expressed deep regret for his son's conduct. He thinks him better off in jail than anywhere else at present, and sent him some money, stipulating that it was not to be spent for whisky. Whisky has been young Haskin's ruin, says his father. The elder Haskin says that a few weeks more of such trials as his son has given him will kill him. Ola Fischer, too, thinks "Freddy" better off in Jail for a time. BREVITIES Mr. E. Canfleld and family of 58 Eureka street returned from Long Beach last eve ning to find that burglars had entered their home while they were away. The contents of bureaus were dumped on the floor and closets were ransacked. Three dollars which had been slipped under a newspaper In a bureau drawer was overlooked. A valuable ring and several other articles of jewelry were the only articles taken from Mrs. Canflehl. while Mr. Canfleld is minufi a good pair of trousers. As the doors were all found locked it is thought the burglars used skeleton keys. J. C. C. Jackson, the colored tailor who attempted suicide Thursday by taking laudanum, denied today that he meant to take bis life. He took the drug, he said, to alleviate the pain he suffered. He has lately had three operations performed. He denied also that the revolvers and razor were beside him, but says they were in the drawer of his bureau, where the guns have been for three years. When ques tioned closely, however, he admitted that his recollection of Thursday Is very hazy. His wife and Dr. McAllister corroborate the suicide theory. About midnight last night Marshal Lacey and Officer Pinkham went down to Chinatown In response to a telephone mes sage. In a house on the corner of San Pasqual street and Raymond avenue a shot was flred, probably over a game of some kind. Wong Yuet, who Is employed by Mr. Visscher of South Madison avenue, flred a shot Into the wall, which caused the commotion.

SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY SAN BERNARDINO SAN BERNARDINO, Sept. 11.-(Regular Correspondence.) The application of the Pacific borax works for permission to cross a county bridge at Daggett with a narrow gauge road, made at the last meeting of the board of supervisors, has called the attention of the management of the Santa Fe to the plans of the company and a con ference was held this week looking to a change of route and instead of building from the works to Daggett, a distance of 15 miles, to bring down the borax and avoid the heavy freighting for shipment, it Is now proposed to build from the works to Newberry. This is about the same dis tance, and as Newberry is to be made a division of the road and built up with round houses, repair shops, etc., it will be come the most important point of the line on the desert. This divides the run from here to the Needles about the middle, which is better than Barstow, and the company has plenty of land there for all the buildings, sidings and other uses nec essary. Newberry will now grow rapidly in size and importance. When laid out ln boom times, Newberry was advertised by giving away half the lots for $2 each, to pay for the cost of making out the papers, and at the next sale of delinquent taxes there were severals of Newberry lots on the list, which could be had for 40 cents a lot. The purchaser of tax titles there would have made a fortune by taking the whole out fit. The visit of Hon. Thomas Fitch, he of the silver tongue fame, was purely a busi ness one and resulted in locating him here for the future. He has bought the Harri son place just north of the city near the foothills, a place of about 20 acres, and will make that his residence. There Is a comfortable house on the place and some fine springs that have been utilized for a bath house. It is the intention to make this his home while practicing law at Los Angeles. Another large fire up Lytle Creek can-1 yon started the new forestry agent, C. S. I Newhail, up the trail, but without results.
