Democratic Committee Meetings.
Whlttler Reorganization—Politi
cal Gossip
The merry contest that Is on for the
Republican gubernatorial nomination
has so confused the Los Angeles county
contingent of Republican politicians
that they are left completely in the dusk,
with no well defined Idea of what the
outcome will be. It is a known fact
that Los Angeles county has within Its
borders some of the men who are largely
Instrumental In making the Republican
politics of this state. The Los Angeles
county delegation In a Republican state
convention Is always haughty, and Is
ever looked upon by candidates for po
sitions on the ticket, as well as their
friends, with both fear and respect. Here
Is the way one of these leaders sizes up
the gubernatorial situation as it stands
♦ ♦ ♦
"Tou see it is this way. By all the
rules of politics and political fairness
our party should this year give the nom
ination for governor to Alameda county.
In the first place it is the banner Repub
lican county of the state. Then four
years ago we sent the nomination north.
Eight years ago it came south. Now,
this time, by rights, It should go to the
region around the bay.
"But, you see, Alameda county Is cut
out for the reason that she has two
candidates —ex-Mayor George C. Pardee
of Oakland and Hon. William R. Davis.
They are both lighting for the Alameda
county delegation, and no matter which
one gets It, the friends of the defeated
candidate will carry the fight Into the
state convention. So this suicidal war
fare will kill off both Davis and Pardee.
♦. * ♦
"In the north the claim is made that
Attorney General W. P. Fltsgerald Is a
resident of Los Angeles county. Judge
Fltsgerald's friends, on the other hand,
claim that he Is not, and wish him cred
ited to San Franoisco. This being the
case, the friends of other candidates say:
" 'Well, if Fltsgerald is from San
Francisco, let him bring in his home
delegation, and then we will consider his
"But this thing of bringing in the
'Frisco delegation Is not going to be an
easy task, and for various reasons. One
of them Is that W. S. Barnes, the son
of General W. H. L. Barnes, and the
present district attorney of San Fran
cisco, is a candidate for the nomination.
He is a young and successful man, find
has all of the prestige his father and the
old gentleman's Influential associations
can give to him. Barnes, In my judg
ment, will have the major half of the
San Francisco delegation.
"The factional fight in the Republican
party In the city makes It dangerous for
any aspiring politician to be with either
faction, and until you know which fao
tlon is going to win It Is hard to say
what candidate is going to have sup
port from San Francisco.
"For these reasons I do not think that
Judge Fitzgerald's prospects are over
promising. The most positive strength
he has is among personal friends in
Southern California.
♦ ♦ 4
"Senator Thomas Flint of San Benito
Is a dark horse candidate and may loom
up with a considerable following. Secre
tary of State L. H. Brown is also In the
field, but I do not know from what source
he expects to collect many votes In the
convention. Brown served four years as
clerk of the supreme court. He has put
In four years as secretary of state and
now he wants four years as governor.
The wants of some men know no

The friends of L. J. Rose have thus
early announced the candidacy of that
gentleman for the Democratic nomina
tion for congress. No statement from
Senator Rose has yet been made offi
cially, but his friends state that they
are confident that he would feel highly
complimented to have the nomination.
.♦ ♦ ♦
There is a rumor current in the far
north that Governor Budd will shortly
undertake to reorganize the board of
trustees of the Whlttler school. Just
what will happen no one seems to know,
but the story Is very generally In cir
culation to the effect that some sweep
ing changes are contemplated.
♦ ♦ v
One well known local Republican poli
tician made this sweeping statement yes
terday: "I would be willing to wager
money that not one of the present occu
pants of the Los Angeles county court
house secures a renomlnation. This bet
I would be sure to win." And there were
no takers.

There will be a meeting of the Demo
cratic executive committee at their
headquarters, room 424 Bullard block, on
Saturday, the Bth Inst. This meeting is
called for the purpose ot discussing vari
ous matters connected with the coming
campaign and the members of this com
mittee are requested to be present.
♦ •»■ t
Candidates appear to be a little shy
In announcing themselves to an anxious
public. The Republicans are all at sea
over the recent school board perform
ances and the part which the League
for Better City Government has played
In that scandal. They say that the
league has Jeopardized the chances of
the Republican party In the county and
defeated it In the city. No one will dis
pute that the league has done good work
In the school board Investigation and but
for Its active part In the Investigation
little would have been accomplished.
The solid six had already programed tc
cover up the tracks of Its culpable mem
bers ahd shut off all Investigation. The
solid six will be a thorn In the side of
their party and the league may prove to
be Its headsman. It ought to be a great
source of satisfaction to the Democrats
and to the public who are clamoring
for good men and better methods In
politics to hear the universal words of
praise of the Democratic members of
the board. The Democratic party and
the people of this city and county need
more men like Conrey and Davis In office.
♦ ♦ ♦
The chairman of the executive com
mittee of the Democratic party proposes
to call a meeting of the central commit
teemen of the county in a short tlmo,
when full information as to the primary
law will be given and various other Im
portant matters presented.
The presence of ex-Governor Altgeld
In the city has started up considerable
Interest in politics. His recent address
at the Silver Republican club sounded
the key-note of the coming campaign
and outlined a wise plan of action. Mr.
Altgeld Is a man of keen foresight In
political matters, and though he has
visited Los Angeles with a view of Im
proving the health of himself and of his
wife, who is with him, his ripe experi
ence in many a welWfought political
battle ought to be profitably utilized by
our local leaders.
♦ ♦ ♦
The executive committee of the Dem
ocratic party of this county held a meet
ing on the 27th of December last for the
purpose of discussing the new primary
law and taking steps to hold the Demo
cratic primaries under it. The meeting
was well attended and a great deal of
enthusiasm was shown. It was decided
to open the campaign at the earliest
practicable time, and In the meantime
to establish headquarters in charge of
the secretary, L. Herzog, who should
look after the details of the primary law
and furnish Information to the various
committeemen throughout the county.
Headquarters have been established at
room 424 of the Bullard block, where any
Information connected with the pri
maries or the campaign can be obtained.

the pioneer In newspaper Illustrating in
this country, his first work being done
when only a boy of 14 for his father's
paper, the National Banner. It had been
Intended to fit him for the career of a
lawyer, but his natural bent for drawing
soon drew him from that field. During

Drunken Man's Actions Precipitate

In a Main street car on the way home.
The trouble was caused by a man's try

sisted in loudly using Indecent language

women. Several blows were exchanged
and the fight threatened to become gen
eral, when the conductor stopped the
car and ejected the belligerents. Later

A Safe Majority for the Anti-Webb
Faction Believed to Be Assured.
The Probable Vote
Tonight's meeting of the board of edu
cation will be one of the most Important
that that body has ever held. It Is the
annual meeting, at which a new presi
dent is to be chosen, and, therefore, new
committees are to be named. C. J. Ku
bach will also take his seat as the repre
sentative of the Seventh ward. That he
will vote for what he thinks Is right is
a certainty. If his record as to honesty
in business transactions can be taken as
a criterion.
The friends of Webb have repeatedly
stated that at tonight's meeting he
would not take a leading part, would
not present the claims of any of his fa
vorites in the board for the presidency—
In short, would simply attend the meet
ing and vote without comment upon such
matters as may be presented. If he does
this there will be nothing in the proceed
ings to suggest or remind a spectator of
the storm through which the board has
been passing for weeks.
Similar promises were made by Webb's
friends once before, however. Then they
stated that they had his word for their
promises, and at the first opportunity he
broke them by endeavoring to again as
sume control of the board. If he does
this tonight It Is certain that his efforts
will be again defeated, for there is a safe
majority against him.
That majority is composed of President
Mathls and Directors Braly, Conrey, Ku
bach and Davis. There has never been
any doubt as to how Braiy, Conrey and
Davis would vote, for they have been in
the minority ever sinoe the board was
organised. As has beep stated, Kuba,ch
has said that he would vote with the
right side, and has Intimated that he did
not think the "solid six" was the right
one. President Mathis can be depended
upon to vote right, and, with his vote
and that of Kubach, It is 'certain the
board will be reorganized.
Who will be president? That la the
question most frequently heard wher
ever school board matters are under
discussion. Dr. Mathis, it is said, will
not be a candidate for re-election, unless,
In the interests of the board, the office
Is forced upon him. Director Davis has
been mentioned repeatedly as a
presidential probability, and If he wants
the place it Is more than likely that he
can get It. It is possible that Mclnerny,
if he Is able to be present, and Poor, both
of whom have long been identified In the
public mind with the "solid six," will
follow the new majority and will sup
port whatever candidate that side pre
According to the rules of the board,
the president appoints the committees.
He simply announces the different com
mittee memberships. With a new pres
ident, it Is certain that there will be some
radical changes In the committees, a
complete revision of the old list, but until
the new president Is elected no one can
tell what these changes will be. Even
if Dr. Mathis is re-elected there will be
a number of fchanges.
Harry Ball Writes The Herald as to
the Situation at Alaskan Points.
His Advice to Others
Harry W. Ball, who Is in the service
of one of the transportation companies
engaged in the Alaskan trade, writes in
terestingly to The Herald from Tacoma
under date of Dec. 27 as to what pros
pective Klondlkers may expect by be
ginning their journey to the gold fields
at this season of the year. He says:
"We have Just returned from Alaska
and are preparing to leave tomorrow on
the return trip. Our last trip was light
but this time we will take north between
300 and 600 people, mostly to Dyea or
Skaguay. Those two points are about
as dull as could be Imagined now. Peo
ple who leave here now for those places
stop there, for no one is going through
to Dawson. Of those who participated
In the rush last fall between 2000 and
3000 remain at the two coast towns.
"Travel from points along Puget sound
and British Columbia to Alaska has al
ready commenced and fully 1000 go ev
ery week. They have no prospects but
they expect to be among the first In
when the spring rush over the passes
begins. There is nothing for them to do
and will not be until the Ist of February
or March. My advice to a man who In
tends to go there Is to wait awhile unless
he has plenty of money to spare and
wants to live at such a place as Dyea
or Skaguay. Juneau lost much of her
population to the other two places. Of
them Skaguay is by far the better town.
There are several hundred substantial
houses and three large wharves there
while Dyea has no wharves.
"There will be a rush to Fort Wrangle
in the spring and there is room there for
good business, as that route will be
used by thousands of miners.
"On our last trip south we brought the
last four men to leave Dawson. They
got to the coast after a trip of forty-two'
days. They stated that there was no
danger of famine at Dawson as two or
three droves of cattle had reached there
and from them the miners could secure
a plentiful supply of meat. Dawson,
they satd, contained 5000 or 6000 people,
and Is a well built city. The men said
that the greatest scarcity existed in
coffee, tea, flour and lighting material,
such as candles or oil.

quest performance of "Othello" last
night by Louis James and his company
to a crowded house, furnished such a
treat as has seldom been given on the
boards of this theater. While Mr. James
has been seen here on prior occasions in
the character of the Moor, the satis
faction afforded by his rendition has al
ways been qualified by the evident ex
istence of certain shortcomings which
prevented the performance from being
called a great one.
It is apparent now that Mr. James has
acquired a grasp ot this most difficult
character such as he never possessed
before. In the earlier scenes he Is dig
nified and impressive, and in the great
third act he rises to a height of tragic
passion such as stirs the blood of every
one. Last night he fairly lifted the au
dience off Its feet when he made the
descent upon lago, threatening him
with dire punishment In case he proved
a deceiver, and winding up by flinging
the miserable wretch upon the floor. Half
a dozen curtain calls had to Jje answered
before the people were satisfied. The
power and Intensity displayed in these
and following scenes was a revelation
even to some of the most ardent ad
mirers of the tragedian. That the per
formance was flawless could not be
maintained, but the differences were
mostly textual, and not of too serious a
kind. As a whole, it was decidedly the
very best thing that Mr. James and his
company have done here this season.
The tragedian has no one on the Ameri
can stage to dispute the palm with him
in the great character he portrayed last
night. Mr. James has an exceptionally
fine voice, and used to be fond of playing
upon It, as It were, calling attention to
Its quality and its compass with but
secondary regard to the meaning In
tended to be conveyed. This habit he
appears now to have dropped, and his
work Is thus far more satisfactory and
convincing in cc-sequence. He has
gained, too, In power and in self-control,
thus preserving a polished effect without
losing any of his strength in the more
difficult passages. He certainly saved
himself in the great "Farewell," but he
amply made up for this economy of
energy in the splendid burst which suc
ceeded it.
It Is but fair to say that Mr. James re
ceived the greatest assistance from
Barry Johnstone as lago. Mr. John
stone gave a very telling and effective
portrayal of the character, displaying a
quiet force and reserved strength, to
gether with an intellectual apprehension
of the subtleties of lago's nature that
made his portraiture a very striking
piece of work. It was marred only by
an inconsistent and melodramatic
shouting climax which Mr. Johnstone
persisted In giving on the several occa
sions when he came to a "curtain." Mrs.
Wells was a good Emilia, and Mary
Emerson, who was the Desdemona,
while she seemed to lack experience,
made a satisfactory heroine.
The remainder of the cast was ade
quate to the requirements of the occa
The entertainment to be given this
evening by the Stanford University Glee,
Mandolin and Specialty clubs, at the
Los Angeles theater, promises to be one
of unusual enjoyment and interest. The
program of the clubs Is varied, and can
not fail to entertain. The songs of the
Glee club are new, and are sung with a
freshness and vivacity only found In
college clubs. The Mandolin club has
attained a mastery of that sensitive In
strument, the mandolin, by long and
thorough practice, and plays with grace
and expression.
In addition to the purely musical fea
tures of the program the specialty work
of the two students who accompany the
clubs, Riley and Dillon,' furnish va
riety as well as humor. Their work is
entirely distinct In character, and each
Is a master of his art. Riley Is a mono
logist of rare talent, while Dillon excels
In impersonations and in dialect work.

Will Add Greatly to Mining: Values
in San Diego County
O. C. Robblns, mining engineer, re
turned recently from a week's visit
spent In Deer Park mining district. Deer
Park Is located about four miles south
of Pine Valley, a little more thn 50 miles
east of San Diego. Mr. Robins reports an
activity amounting almost to excitement
all through the camp. T. P. Kennedy, a
Colorado mining man of experience, who
has been up there a year with his two
sons, has succeeded with their aid In de
veloping a fine property In the Independ
ence mine. He has put down two shafts,
each 70 feet deep, and connected at the
bottom by a tunnel. At the bottom he Is
in a big true Assure vein of ore, running
from $16 to $45 to the ton.
The Noble Brothers, who are the pio
neers of that section, are taking out a lot
of rich ore, and tAU start up their mill

uable mine there, which is being worked
to some extent now.
' Altogether, upward of twenty mines
are now being worked by some sixty or
seventy men In the Deer Park district,
and now that two stamp mills are In op
eration, there will be a great deal more
prospecting than in the past. The pres

future is even brighter. It will be only
a few months until the bullion output will
attract attention beyond the borders of

Santa Barbara's Asbestos Mine
Santa Barbara county, with her beach
gold mines, her cinnabar, her gypsum,
her oil wells and her Immense bitumin
ous rock and asphalt industry is already
one of the foremost mineral-producing
sections of California. Recently a dis
covery has been made which will add
materially to her mineral wealth. A
deposit of fossilized asbestos, undoubt
edly the largest and finest in the United
States, has been unearthed near Lompoc.
The deposit lies on the lands of Arthur
P. Balaam, about two and a half miles
south of Lompoc. Numerous borings
have been made, which Indicate that the
deposit Is from 60 to 100 feet In thickness
and a quarter of a mile In length. It lies

Sale in the Ibex District
No mines In this section of country
have been more beneficial to the town of
Needles than those situated in the Ibex
district. Last Monday A. F. Judson, the
mining expert of Colton, effected a sale
of the Pioneer group of mines to M. W.
Clay of McElhaney, Mo., and D. T. Jack
son of Kansas City. These two gentle
men are connected with railroad and
various corporation interests, and repre
sent millions of money. They will pro
ceed at once to Kansas City, where, after
conferring with their partners, they will
put in machinery and proceed to work
the mines for all they are worth. The
group of mines sold consist of the Pio
neer, the Jackrabblt, the Jim Crow, the
Bijou, the Crown and the Golden Dream,
which also carry with them the right and
title to the Pioneer mill site. These
mines were owned by Frank P. Sebum
and Fred Shafer, who realised the
handsome sum of $50,000 for them.

Northport. Construction of the smelter

the Le Rol has paid $200,000 in dividends,
built a $100,000 smelter, and expended
about $16,000 in permanent Improve
ments at the mine.
