perity Is Imminent —He Hopes
So, Anyway
Associated Press Special Wire.
CINCINNATI, 0., Oct. 20—President
McKinley has had continuous ovations
here today from the time of his arrival
at m:no a. m. until after midnight, when l
the banquet of the Comcrcial club was,
over. He received ovations at Nenia
and all along the Little Miami valley
before reaching this city. When the
presidential party left the train at Tor-]
rence roads, there was a multitude of
suburbanites there to greet him and the
ovation continued en route to Walnut
Hills, where Kirshelm, the Sohmldlap
home, Is located. Then followed ovation?
en route into the city at noon, the public
receptions by the chamber of commerce
and the Young Men's Business club in
the afternoon.
From these "down-town" reception?
the presidential party was driven bark
to tin; Kirsheim mansion to attend, late
in the afternoon, the muslcale given by
Mrs. Schmidlap in honor of Mrs. Mc-
Kinley.
The guests included the most prom
inent leaders In Cincinnati, notablj
Mrs. Flelschmann, wife of Hon Charles
Flelschmann, state senator: Mrs. Perry
S. Heath. Mrs. Judson Harmon, wife of
the retiring attorney-general; Mrs.
Charles P. Taft, wife of Congressman
Tafl; Mrs. J. T. Carcw and Mrs. Calvin
S. Price, wife of Senator Brlce. Mrs
Schmidlap was assisted by her two sis
ters, Mrs. Dr. Koehlcr and Mrs. Koehler.
The purpose of the presidential visit
Was accomplished when tonight tho
promise, given a year ago, was fulfilled
by the president becoming the guest of
the Cincinnati Commercial club at their
annual dinner. The function was c*»
elusive, though the thirty-eight mem
bers of the club present were reinforced
by fifty-two guests, including ex-Attor
ney-Qeneral Johnson Harmon. Col.
Myron T. Herrlok, Mayor Tnfei, M. E.
Ingalls, J. Addison Porter, L. C. Weir,
president of the Adams Express com
pany: Judge W. H. Taft of the United
States court, and Col. M. H. Cochran of
the Sixth infantry, U. S. A. The menu
and toast list were handsomely en
graved on heavy cards tied with pale
blue satin ribbons. At the plate of each
guest was a triangular box containing
miniature silver loving cups, gold lined
nnd bearing on the surface the engraved
monogram of the club, the date and the
legend, "President McKinley, Guest of
Honor."
Tho toast list began with an address
by the president of the club, Luclen
Wilson. Following this was the toast.
"Our Guest."
"They love their land because it Is their
own,
And scorn to give aught other reason why:
Would shake hands with a king upon a
throne.
And think it kindness to his majesty."
President McKinley responded.
Following this was "Tho Commercial
Club, Its Past and Future," responded
to by M. 10. Ingalls; "The Executive and
the Legislature," responded to by Hon.
Judson Harmon: "Party Government
the Nation's safety," responded to by
Hon. John H. Warrington; "The Legis
lature and Judiciary," response by Hon.
W. H. Taft.
After greeting tho members of the
Commercial club and referring pleasant
ly to the people of Cincinnati, the
president said, in part:
"There Is much that is gratifying to
me in this assembly because it is rep
resented by men of all parties and
creeds united in a common aim and a
most worthy one—that of promoting
good government and disseminating
those ideas which will best Insure the
honor and prosperity of the country.
We gain by intelligent discussion of
public questions carried on in an or
ganization of yours, not from a stand
point of partisanship, but of good clti
senshlp. What will make the nation
strongest and best; what will make its
citizenship the most useful and effect
ive In government?
"Commerce is a teacher and a pacifi
cator. It gives mankind knowledge of
one another. Reciprocity of trade pro
motes reciprocity of friendship. Good
trade insures good will. The heart as
well as the mind contributes directly to
the progress of mankind and wherever
we secure just and fair commercial re
lations with other nations we are sure
to have friendly political relations with
them.
"Abating none of our Interest In the
homo market, let us move steadily out
to new .fields and increase the demand
for our products in the foreign market.
It should be our settled purpose to open
trade wherever we can, making our
ships and our commerce messengers of
peace and amity.
"The consular service of the govern
ment should bo closely scrutinized and
carefully officered and we should have
at every commercial port of the world a
sensible and practical American, who,
while discharging his other duties with
honor to the government, will not omit
In every proper way to promote Ameri
can exchanges and encourage reciprocal
trade.
"Finally, if we are entering upon an
era of prosperity such as many believe
and all fervently hope, remembering our
recent panic and financial experiences,
we should strengthen tho weak places In
our financial system and remove It for
ever from ambiguity and doubt."
The president's address was listened
to with the closest attention and was
punctuated now and then with ap
plause; but at the close the explosion
was spontaneous and long continued.
POMONA
POMONA, Oct. 30.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) One of a quartet of Po
mona quail hunters while out hunting
north of Cucomonga yesterday not only
succeeded in bagging a good lot of birds,
but brought down one of the party as
well. In the party were Bey. F. M.
Dowling, pastor of the Pomona Chris
tian church; John D. Cason, a brother
in-law of Mr. Dowling; Dr. E. Hender
son and Fralser Nesbit. A stray shot
from Mr. Cason's gun hit Bey. Dow ling
over the right eye, producing, as it was
afterwards learned, merely a flesh
wound, but causing extreme excitement
at the time. The wound bled freely, and
Mr. Cason was almost beside himself,
with grief over the accident.- and when
Fralser Nesbit saw Mr. Dowling lying
down with his face bloody and a physi
cian bending over him he fainted at the
sight. The wound, It is thought, -will
not deter Bey. Dowling from preaching
Sunday, his subject for the morning
service selng by a coincidence, "The
Church a Life Saving Station." In the
evening the subject will be, "Lights
Going Out."
A. Klmbell, a rancher living near
Chino, lost a valuable mare in a run
away accident shortly after noon to
day, the horse being so Injured that it
will have to be shot. The mare ran
away and in coursing through an
orange grove struck her head against
a tree and crushed her skull.
A HAWAIIAN MYSTERY
MAJOR MULHATJSER TRIES TO
SHUFFLE OFF
His Cleveland Friends Think He Was
Only Carrying Out a Little
Practical Joke
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30.—The fol
lowing Hawaiian advices, under date of
the 2:! d inst., arrived today, per steamer
Peru: Major S. A. Mulhauser of Cleve
land, Ohio, who is here on a mission
which has been surrounded with mys
tery, made a futile attempt to suicide
here on the 22d by shooting himself in
the breast with a small revolver. Des
pite denials from Washington. Mulhau
ser, in interviews printed by Kan Fran
cisco papers, claimed that he was com
ing to Hawaii on a spec ial mission on
behalf of President McKinley. While
here Mulhauser denied the authenticity
of the interviews, but stated thut his
father and Mark Hanna were warm per
sonal friends, and that he was close to
McKinley. He also professed to be con
nected with several American papers,
and said he had accomplished much
work already. While a frequent caller
at the American legation and tho gov
ernment building here, no one seems to
TtfTJW his business.
Senators Cannon of Utah, Pettigrew
of South Dakota and Dubois of Idaho,
who have been studying the operations
of the gold and silver standards In China
and Japan, are returning home. Can
non arrived on the Peru and came ashore
here for a few hours to inspect Pearl
Harbor and other points of interest.
JUST A JOKli
CLEVELAND, Oct. 30.—The news
about the attempted suicide of Samuel
Muhlha user at Honolulu is received here
with incredulity, and much more so the
Story told in connection with it. He is
a son of the late Samuel Muhlhauser, a
wealthy woolen mill owner. He was in
the insolvency court of this county, was
not a major, and was not connected with
the district attorney's office. He went
to the islands for his health, and the
stories about his political mission are set
down by his brother as newspaper fic
tion, or practical Joking, or hallucination
on his part.
Pretty Kwai Moy
A pair of Chinese elopers appeared
In Justice Owens' court yesterday aft
ernoon, "allce sameo 'Melican man."
They were not brought there by any
society for the prevention of vice, but
by an irate husband, who charged the
couple with the theft of $300 worth of
jewels.
The elopers are Wong Lip and Kwal
Moy. The woman might be called beau
tiful, and is so considered among the
higher class of Chinese who dwell along
Ferguson alley. Wong Lip won her af
fections, and she deserted her so-called
husband, Wong Ark, who has four other
wives.
He is a slave-holder, and worked the
usual dodge to recover a runaway chat
tel. As soon as the woman's tllght was
discovered, Wong Ark went before the
district attorney and swore to a com
plaint charging her and her paramour
with grand larceny, alleging that they
had made away with $300 worth of jew
elry belonging to him. The warrant was
turned over to Constable Harry John
son, who captured the runaway couple
at Fresno.
California Pioneers
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30.—The So
ciety of California Pioneers will cele
brate the semi-centennial of the first
discovery of gold in California by
Marshall on January 24, ISUS. The sur
vivors of the party accompanying Mar
shall will be brought here to participate
in the celebration. Gov. Rudd has
promised to proclaim the day a legal hol
iday.
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 31 J897
A LOVE AFFAIR
Ends in Death of a Berke*
ley Student
SUPPOSED TO BE A SUICIDE
BTfT M AY HAVE RESULTED FROM
ACCIDENT i
Anna Hollywell of Redlands Dies
From Morphine Poisoning—Her
Parents Are Mystified
Associated Press Special Wire.
OAKLAND, Oct. 30.—Miss Anna
Blythe Hollywell, a comely member of
the class of 1!I01 of the University of
California, whose home is at Bedlands,
committed suicide in her room, No. 21C5
Center street, Berkeley, at an early hour
this morning, by means of morphine.
The young woman for the past week has
been in depressed spirits, but studiously
concealed from her associates all knowl
edge of what caused her depression.
Last night about 9 o'clock, she was
heard to be breathing heavily In her
room by Miss H. E. Durgin, sister of the
proprietor of the house. Miss Durgin
entered the girl's room and found Miss
Hollywell unconscious. Miss Durgin
saw that the girl was in a dangerous
condition. Several physicians Were
summoned, but the first to appear was
Dr. Hoagland, who pronounced the cas"
one of poisoning, and this fact was sub
stantiated by finding a partly used bot
tle of laudanum and a box containing
morphine. They worked on the girl un
til 1:30 o'clock this morning, when she
died. The remains were then taken to
the morgue.
The suicide was undoubtedly occa
sioned by an affair of the heart. This
was shown by a letter dated at San Fran-
Cisco on the 23d inst., which told of a. love
affair between the girl and a young
man named Arthur, but the family
name was not given. It shows that on
the day in question Arthur died, and the
writer of the letter asks the girl to bear
up under her sorrow.
The note shows that there must have
been an estrangement between the
young people, because the writer, who
signs the name of Ells B. King, says:
"He wanted to ask you himself If you
would not, now he's dead, wear the ring
you refused to wear while alive, as a
token of forgiveness and reconciliation.
He wished me to say there would be
nothing binding in it. He freed you
from all promises, and asked to be re
membered only as a friend."
Last Monday she received a telegram
from San Francisco, which was signed
by R. J. Blythe, and read as follows:
"All over; do not come now; died yes
terday." That night the girl was found
unconscious in her room from a dose of
morphine, but was taken out of the stu
por soon after being found. The parents
of the girl have been notified by tele
graph.
THE FATHER NOTIFIED
REDLANDS. Oct. 30.— TV. C. Hollywell
received a telegram this morning that
his daughter, Anna Blythe Hollywell,
died at Berkeley from an overdose of
medicine, aged 10. She was a graduate
of tho Union High School of Bedlands
'97. She was second in the contest for
the prize esay on the Indian question.
It was her first term at tho State Univer
sity. She was very studious, modest and
retiring. She had no gentlemen close
acquaintances. Her father attended
the Grand Lodge of Foresters in San
Francisco two weeks ago. He left her
in good health, comfortably located and
with sufficient means. A letter received
from her last night said all was well.
The only trouble she spoke of was a
painful Ingrowing toenail. Her father
thinks she may have taken an overdose
of a sleeping draught. There was no
possible contingency to account for sui
cide. The father leaves for Berkeley to
night.
COMPLETELY MYSTIFIED
W. C. Hollywell, the father of the ill
starred gild, was seen last evening at
the Arcade depot by a Herald reporter.
He had just arrived from Bedlands and
was on the point of taking the train for
Oakland.
Mr. Hollywell was not only intensely
affected by the tragic loss of his daugh
ter but was also considerably mystified
by the circumstances. "I cannot un
derstand it all," he said. "I know ab
solutely nothing of any such entangle
ments as hinted at by the dispatches;
nor do I know anything of any such man
of the name of King. She was devoted
to her studies, as far as we knew, and
I cannot believe she had any love af
fair. The only' 'Arthur' that I ever
heard her speak of—and, mind you, I
was with her two weeks ago at Berke
ley—was a small boy, 3 or 4 years old,
Arthur Berg, who was living in the
same house at which she was boarding.
When I was at Berkeley there was no
possible idea of anything wrong, except,
indeed, that she was suffering consider
ably from ingrowing toenails. lam en
tirely In the dark about the matter. I
do not and cannot believe that she com
mitted suicide. I am completely in the
dark. The only idea that I have is that
she may have suffered so much from
pain that she tried to stop it with lauda
num or morphine and accidentally and
lgnorantly took an overdose.
"I don't understand tho Blythe epi
sode, as quoted in the dispatches. She
took the name of Blythe from her ma
ternal grandmother and was no relation
to the Blythes of San Francisco."
The Two-Inch Traveling Clock
The newest traveling clock comes In
a leather case only two inches long. It
Is a decided thing of beauty as well as
one of the novelties of the season. Tho
face of the clock is only as large as a
10-cent piece, and it forms the center of
an enameled flower.
As far as outward appearances go, the
new traveling clock might be mistaken
for a court plaster case. It was made
to be carried in the pocket.
When the case is opened an enameled
flower Is seen, in the center of which i.T
the timepiece. The case is so arranged
that the part which carries the flower
may be pulled out and made to stand up,
thus forming a unique little desk clock
These clocks come Incased in three
■hades of leather, brown, green and deep
red. The green casts open to disclose
a green enameled lucky clover leaf with
the face of the clock in the center. Others
show a chrysanthemum in white enamel,
and still others pansics both in purple
and yellow. These novel traveling
clocks cost $7.95.—New York Journal.
PASADENA
PASADENA, Oct. 30.—(Regular Cor- 1
respondence.) John Adams, arested and
tried l>y a jury upon the charge o£ va
grancy in Justice Merrlam's court at j
2 p. m. today, was acquitted in about
thirteen minutes after the jury retired. !
This certainly is a precedent, as every
tramp arrested heretofore and appearing
before Justice Meriam, has pleaded
guilty and received a sentence of from i
five days up in the county jail. The
jurymen were W. H. Darrow, Thomas
El. Toppln, J. W. Barnett, S. W. Pyle, I
P. M. Underwood, Fred Conant, A. W.
Banbury, A. C. Ainsworth, J. H. Mur- |

Hendricks. Constable Sam Wallis and
Deputy J. D. Kelsey testified to finding
the defendant in a boxcar of the South
ern California Bailway company near I
the Baymond station at about 9 oclock
Thursday evening. He had crawled in
and lain down In some straw. There
was a smell of tobacco smoke in the 1
place, and also a bottle of sour wine, j
nearly empty. It was Adams' intelli
gent appearance, strightforward speech ,
and air of injured Innocence which clear- !
cd him with the jury. If a hardened 1
hobo, he is certainly a shrewd fellow.
He is tall and dark, with a full beard and
regular features. lie spoke In a deep,
clear voice, using good lan-'uage. He
came from Trinity county, he lt.i<l, was
out of work and out of funds. He had
been on his way to Azusa, but had hurt
his foot and had thought there would !
he no harm in his Bleeping in the box
car. He denied having been smoking,
and also denied the ownership of the
SOUr wine. He committeed no nuisance
and disturbed nothing inside the car.
The jury heard him sympathetically
and rendered a verdict setting him free.
A FOOTBALL GAME

Angeles Military academy boys in a

CHAMPION THE CHINESE
A League Formed to Get the Mongol
ians Equal Rights
NEW YOBK, Oct. 30—The Chinese are
going to make a fight for their rights
in the United States, as the colored peo
ple have done in the past. They have
formed tho Chinese Equal Bights league
and purpose waging a systematic cam
paign for freeing the members of their
WONG CHIN FOO
race from the restrictions that now
hedge them about in this country. One
of the first steps toward this coveted
freedom is the holding of a convention of
all the Chinamen in the United States.
Such a one has been called to meet here
next Monday. The call is issued by the
league, of which the president is Wong
Chin Foo. This clever little gentleman
is well known in Chinese-American cir
cles, He dresses like an American and
speaks like one. He is one of the most
Americanized Chinamen that ever lived.
All he wants to make him a complete
Yankee is an American wife and a good
office. Wong Is well educated In Chinese
and English. Nearly twenty years ago
he was more of a rara avis than he is
now, when Americanized Orientals are
numerous. Back in the eighties he al
ways figured as the mouthpiece of the
saffron Celestials in North America.
A big magazine once got up a sym
posium from distinguished thinkers of
all religions on the reasons for their be
lief. Wong Chin Foo contributed the
paper on Confucius' system. His set
ting forth of the claims of his religion
was so strongly made that it caused the
widest discussion. Since then Wong's
career has been on less lofty planes, and
In the precarious pursuit of bread he
has been mixed up in many peculiar
transactions. He has been bitterly de
nounced by those of his own race who
claimed he had acted as a spy on them.
Wong's denials of these accusation!
were models of ingenious exculpation.
The league Is said to comprise in its
membership Chinese traders in America
worth fully 55.000.000. The Chinese have
a big membership in the Masonic order,
and to secure the co-operation of these
interests Yee Guy Ming, who is a prom
inent figure among the Chinese Masons,
| has been made secretary of the league.
Wong Kee of this city Is the treasurer.
Th chief work of the convention will
be to lay plans for securing the natural
izations of all Chinese who wish to be
come citizens. Subscriptions will be
opened to engage several able lawyers
to prosecute this matter. Foo expects
to be able to harmonize the various
factions, but those who know the feel

"LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28, 1897.
"Dr. W. Harrison Ballard, 400 Stimson
block: Dear Sir—l am glad to be able to
announce the fact that I have been cured
of consumption by your improved Koch
treatment, and I leel that I owe my
health, and my life even, to you. I had a se
vere attack of la grippe in 1894, followed
by pneumonia, which left me with a very
severe weakness of the lungs. This de
veloped (juite rapidly into a well marked
case of consumption, so that I was obliged
to leave my home in Indiana. I tried vari
ous localities for the benefit of climate, and
received at the same time the best medical
treatment I could get in Nebraska, and
later in Chicago and lloston. Instead of
improving, however, I grew worse, and de
veloped a very severe cough, with profuse
expectoration, I also bad annoying and
constant fever, with night sweats, and in
1806 hemorrhages, after which I became
very weak and lost In weight till I only
weighed 80 I then came to Los
Angeles and soon commenced taking your
Improved Koch treatment. At that time,
January, 1597, there were bacilli present in
my sputa, showing my trouble to be beyond
doubt tuberculosis. Your treatment has
accomplished a perfect cure for me. and
I now .am absolutely free from all the
symptoms, having no cough, no expectora
tion, no fever or nightsweats. and have
gained 35 pounds, so that now T weigh 115
pounds. I am very grateful for the success
of your treatment in my case, and ear
nestly recommend all suffering from lung
trouble to avail themselves of the benelits
of your unproved Koch treatment.
"Yours truly, MRS. S. N. GKRBER,

We beg to say that we have secured
the services of several good ranchers, who
have good outfits, and have gpt through
their own spraying with Mcßain Wash,
and are going to help us out with con
tract work. These in addition to our
present sprayers gives us a big staff,
and we will contract this year for the
spraying of orchards at a very reasonable
price in order to have our wash used un
der our directions, as it will speak for
itself where used. We might also state
to those requiring the Mcßain Wash,
which requires no boiling, simply cold
water for dilution, we are prepaaed to
ship on short notice from one case to car
load lots. To those requiring a good
(compressed air spraying) pump for one
or two lines of hose, we have the newest
thing on the mark;t. Call at the office
and see it. Now for the next sixty days,
to those buying 200 gallons of wash,
send $100, actnal price of wash,
and we return 200 gallons of wash and
one of our Pumps free. Also to those
requiring contract work amounting to
$100 or over, a pump goes free. In this
manner we hope to introduce both the
wash and place a good pump, such as we
desire in connection with our wash. In the
hands of the orchardist, and thus be able
to do his own work next year. He will
then have a good pump, and it we spray
his orchard under our instructions, we
also know we will sell him Mcßain's
next year.
