SANTA MONICA SANTA MONICA, Jan. 1.-(Regular Correspondence.) Last evening at sun set Patrick Robertson discovered a man, apparently unconscious, lying on the sidewalk in front of Miramar, the home of Senator Jones. Mr. Robertson In formed the Miramar household, and the senator and several others came out to investigate. A messenger was at once dispatched for Dr. Hamilton and the man was carried into the house and ev ery effort made to restore consciousness. He was well dressed and in one of his pockets was found a card bearing tho following striking name and address: "Dr. T.-ofil F. de Lawczynski, Imperial Military Medical Academic of St. Peters burg." In about an hour conspinnanoao returned, and the apparently would-be suicide, upon finding himself surround ed by people who were doing all th"y could to save his life, began to rave, ami vigorously objected to being brought back to life. When he quieted down he told a harrowing tale of misfortune. He said he had eaten nothing for four days and as a last resort had pawned his over coat, using part of the proceeds to pur chase the morphine with which he had attempted to end his life. The ladies at Miramar were very sym pathetic, but Senator Jones looked sus piciously on the case, pronouncing it a fake. However, the senator had him taken to Hotel Jackson, where a room was engaged and paid for by him and a nurse engaged to watch with him during the night This morning the guests at the hotel began to object to his presence. Accordingly a complaint, charging him LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 3, 1898 with Insanity, was Issued and the offlc crs started to bring him Into court, when he exhibited such symptoms of Intense suffering that it was decided to take him to a Los Angeles hospital at once.

A Stanford student, who Is here for the holidays, met Lawc zynski on the boat coming from San Francisco in December 20, and says the latter told nlm that he was practicing in San Francisco, with an office at 816-B Larkin street, and that he was coming here to perform an operation. He had two French bills of exchange drawn by a Havana bank for 8100 each and over $50 In cash at the time. Lawczynskl is said to have had a sim ilar experience In Pasadena on Decem ber XL There was a large attendance at the firemen's ball last night at-the Arcadia, and the firemen pronounce it. the most successful one ever given by them.

The insurance adjusters are at work on the losses by the recent lire, and with their expert builders are going over the ground care fully before making the decisions that are anxiously waited for. The losses to what might be called outsiders, those whose houses were scorched and not burned clown, are occupying the first attention and will be first adjusted that repairs may be commenced at once. Most of the burned buildings will be re built as soon as the losses are adjusted and the money paid over. The Episco pal church will probably secure a little outside donation, and calling on the members for what they can afford to give, will put up a neat but not expen sive building on the site of the burned edifice. An ordinance has been drawn up and will be presented to the board of city trustees next Tuesday by which the board can control all buildings erected in the city that are likely to prove dan gerous. This will be done without ex tending the fire limits, as the latter move would work a hardship on many who wish to put up frame cottages, but it WiU keep entirely on the outside In a safe place such Inflammable shops as the one recently burned. The two lodges of Odd Fellows of the city enjoyed a New Year gathering by combining and inviting the lodges of Colton and Ontario to participate with them, resulting in working the degrees by separate teams and closing with a midnight banquet. At the latter T. W. Duckworth as toastmaater called upon T. S. Knoles of Ontario, C. B. Hamilton of Colton, O. A. Atwood. C. L. Allison and N. A. Richardson of this city, from whom they had excellent addresses, a decided improvement to that usually in vogue of calling on a large number, most of whom have nothing to say. There was a large attendance from the four lodges represented. There is a bit of quicksand In the bed of the Santa Ana river near Aqua Man sa, between Colton and Riverside, that occasionally catches the unwary who traverse that section when duck hunt ing, or the unsophisticated traveler who thinks he can drive across the river at that point. The latest to catch on.to the sand was E. D. Chapman, who took an outing for duoks on New Year's day. He started to wade out after a couple of ducks and commenced to sink in the sand. Thinking It might be but a few Inches deep he ran the muzzle of his gun down to find bottom and in pulling it back he pressed the triggers and the gun burst to pieces. Chapman kept sink ing until he ceased to struggle and lying on one side he gradually worked himself loose from the treacherous sand. Keep ing a cool head is all that saved his life. About a year ago the board of super visors authorized the board of hortlcul-. tural commission to procure Mongolian pheasants and stock the county with them. Unfortunately that department of the couruty affairs Is not swift and has done nothing so far except to "reso lute" on the subject. From prospects the protective season for the birds will expire before the first pair are located In this county. A large number went to Riverside Sat urday evening to attend a reception given to Mrs. E. S. Davis, the Christian science teacher who has resided there eleven years and taught classes at Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Pomona, Col ton, South Riverside and Riverside, un til her hundreds of students are scat tered along the coast from San Diego to San Francisco. Among them is a young Catholic priest who renounced his vows to that church and is at work for the new religion in San Francisco. Half a dozen or more churches have been es tablished In the places named through the teachings of Mrs. Davis. The re ception was a large and very enjoyable one.

Carter left yester day for Los Angeles where they will make their future home, Mr. Carter go ing into business there. Uncle George Lord, now on the last half of his 98th year, is quite low and his friends think Tie is rapidly failing. He has the distinguished honor of being the oldest Masom and oldest Odd Fellow, not only In years, but service, in the United States, and probably In the world. Dr. A. K. Johnson went to Santa Monica Saturday for a short stay to re cover from the exertions and excitement of the late fire when his residence was on fire a dozen times and only by the greatest exertions of himself, family and friends the building was saved.

Preliminary location notices have been in great demand all day. Where the claim Is In a particularly de sirable neighborhood several parties will try to be the first on the ground. At this time last year trouble was looked for, but it is not thought to be at all like ly this year. Some of these claims were taken up early In the year of 1896; not a bit of development work was done; still the locators could hold them almost two years and keep away a man who would be glad to develop them. The new law requiring $50 worth of development work within sixty days is a blessing to the bona-fide miner. During the past week the dog poison er has been abroad in the land, and be tween forty and fifty dogs have gone to the happy hunting grounds. Several valuable animals have been lost, and If the poisoner can be found he will find this locality decidedly unhealthy.

Tears coursed down the man's face as he told of the faithfulness of his canine friend, and It was afterward learned that he had been offered and refused $100 for the dog. The advent of the railroad Is already being felt in a business way. Two par ties outfitted here this week to go to a point near Resting springs, to look after mining properties recently purchased. One party, consisting of the representa tives of a Los Angeles company, goes to work mines which were abandoned several years ago.

Case of Los Angeles, the Congre gational Sunday school organizer for Southern California, arrived here Sat urday and spoke to the Sunday school children Sunday afternoon and to the older people in the evening.
