Death of Rev. A. J. Meyer
of St. Vincent's
Great College Which Has Grown Up
Under His Care—Sudden Attack
of Fnuemonia
The broad entrance is draped in som
ber black; tho American flag hangs list
lessly at lialf-rnast, solemn and silent
symbols of St. Vincent's grief and loss,
for the president of St. Vincent college
and pastor of St. Vincent church passed
peacefully away at 6:30 yesterday
morning, at the Sisters' hospital, after
receiving the consolation of the last
rites of the Roman Catholic church.
Very Itev. A. J. Meyer, CM., was born
on December ID, 1838, In the city of Ba
den, Germany, receiving the rudiments
of his education In France. Arriving In
America In ISSS. he pursued his ecclesi
astical studies nt St. Mary's seminary
of Perrysvllle, Mo., also known as the
seminary of the Vineentian, or Lazarist,
In ISSS he was admitted to the order of
the Congregation of the Mission, and
was ordained priest In 1563. Upon com
pleting his studies, he was called to St.
Louis, where he officiated as pastor of
St. Vincents' church, remaining there
until June, ISG6, when he was tendered
a professorship at St. Vincent's college
at Cape Girardeau, Mo., as director of
seminarians. Here he continued until,
recognizing his extraordinary abilities
and the zeal and earnestness which he
put forth In the pursuance of his relig
ious and educational efforts, he was
culled to the presidency of St. John's col
lege of Brooklyn, N. V., in which office
he performed his duties with the high
degree of efficiency that characterized
him, for twelve years. From Brooklyn he
was called to till the pulpit of the Im
maculate Conception church of Balti
more, Md.
In 1885 he was appointed president of
Bt. Vincent college of Bos Angeles,
which was at that time but a name. In
1886 Father Meyer, through his own in
dividual efforts, reconstructed St. Vin
cent church and reared the present mag
nificent pile known as St. Vincent col
lege, situated at the corner of Grand
avenue and Washington street, which
stands today as a monument to his re
ligious zeal and indomitable will. In
June, 1893, he removed to St. Louis, as
president of the Kenrick Theological
seminary, which olflce he occupied for
two years, or until the entreaties and the
pressure exercised by his former par
ishioners compelled his return to this
city, where he had since remained.
Father Meyer possessed all the higher
qualities and virtues which will endear
and perpetuate his memory in the hu
man heart—a man of most charitable
nature, subjugating self in ministering
to the wants of others, and giving sub
stantial evidence to the afflicted.. The
true sweetness of his soul manifested
itself, not so much in the great effort
put forth in the upbuilding of the church,
as In the one great, predominating de
sire to alleviate human suffering and
misery, Irrespective of religious affilia
Returning one week ago last evening
from his parochial duties, he complained
of a slight Illness, and retired at the un- !
usual hour of 7 oclock. A short time!
later he seemed to become seriously ill,
and called for the assistance of Dr. Kan
non, the attending Physician, who pro
nounced it a case of acute pneumonia.
He continued to grow rapidly worse,
and chronic kidney trouble, with which
he had previously been afflicted, but
hastened the end.
Dr. Meyer's mother, aged 87 years,
still survives him, residing on the home
place in Germany, where he was born
nearly fifty-nine years ago. The body
will remain in state at St. Vincent's
church from 4 oclock today until Tues
day morning at 9 oclock, when solemn
requiem mass will be sung, Hlshop Mont
gomery officiating, assisted by many
priests of the diocese. The re
mains will then be conveyed to
the new Calvary cemetery at Boyle
belghts for Interment. Many Catholic
Ipcleties and past and present students
of St. Vincent college are expected to
Yturralde Said to Have Been the
Aggressor in the Fight
Manuel Dominguez, though suffering
from two gunshot wounds In the head,
said to have been Inflicted by Vincente
Yturralde, was held to answer before
the superior court yesterday afternoon,
his ball being fixed at $5000, in default of
which he was committed to Jail. Ytur
ralde Is now a prisoner in the county
hospital, and his wounds are so serious
tha It will be several weeks before ho
will be able to appear In court. It was
for Inflicting these wounds that Domln
guez was held- to answer. The particu
lars of the trouble between the two men
at Calabasas was published In The Her-
aid yesterday morning. Yesterday Do
mlnguez was placed in jail and In the
afternoon was taken by Constable Lopez
to San Fernando for an examining trial
before Justice Barclay. His victim
would have been taken at the same time
had It been safe to mo«j him. At thu
trial evidence was adduced that Domln
guez was to blame for the shooting and
several witnesses testified that he was
the aggressor. He was brought back to
the county jail last night at 10 oclock
and will remain there until the other
man Is able to appear against him.
Asphalt Question Not Settled
The Western Oil and Asphalt compa
ny, formerly the Oil Burning and Supply
company, has sent a long communica
tion to the city council relative to the
quality of the paving material fur
nished by them and asking the council
to favorably consider the points of al
leged superiority of their product. The
communication claims for the oil pro
duct better results and attempts to
prove It by the report of the expert to
whom samples of the several grade? of
asphalt were furnished. This company
has long been anxious to induce the
council to so change the street paving
specifications that they may bid on
street work or have a chance to sell
their product to those who do bid on
such work. The communication is for
the purpose of again presenting the
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 12.—Issue has
been joined in the important suit of Chas.
B. Polhemus against the estate of the'
late Chas. Mayne. The action is to col
lect a claim of $1,200,000, alleged to be

Senator Stanford, taken five years ago, is
to be submitted to the court. It has
never been opened since the day it was

throw light upon the manner in which
the transfer of the road was effected.

Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12.—The senate
committee on public lands spent the en
tire day remodelling the bill granting
the right of way to highways through
Alaska territories.
The scope of the bill has been extended
so as to make it practically a general
measure, covering public land problems
in Alaska, and some of the matters con
sidered are even outside of public land
quetlons. Notably so is a proposition
looking to the extension of the bonded
districts for Canadian goods. The Ca
nadians are asking this government to
extend the bonded limit up the Stickeen
river to Granola, and an amendment
has been proposed which would make
the granting of this request dependent
upon the acquiescence of the Canadian
government in the requests of American
citizens for rights of way for railroads
into the Klondike country, which would
connect with American steamship lines
at American ports, which they have so
far refused. Another important amend
ment which has been offered is one pro
hibiting the manufacture, importation
and sale of intoxicating liquors within
the territory of Alaska. Many other
amendments were passed upon, but all
of them related to details of administra
tion and none of them Was of great im
portance in itself.
BUFFALO, N. V., Feb. 12.—The de
partment of customs of the dominion
government has a memorandum in re
gard to the entry of goods into the Yu
kon district. In brief, the new Instruc
tions provide that goods purchased in
Canada, destined to the Klondike dis
trict, must be carried in British bot
toms; otherwise full duty must be paid
on them.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12. — The post
office will take no action on the proposals
submitted in answer to a recent adver
tlsement inviting bids for the establish
ment of two mail routes between Ju
neau, Alaska, and the mouth of the Yu
kon. This decision was reached as the
result of some representations made to
the department' by the Canadian gov
ernment, that It has already arranged
for a line of stations for mail purposes
over its own territory from Dawson by
way of Lake Teslin, Including a line of
railroad from Lake Teslin to the Stick
een river, thence along the river to the
coast near the United States postoftice
at Fort Wrangel.
Negotiations are in progress between
the postal departments of the two gov
ernments for an exchange between Daw
son and Circle City, and later proposals
will be asked for supplying a service be
tween the latter place and the mouth of
the Yukon.
SEATTLE, Wash., Feb. 12. — The

claims of this city, which they have suc
cessfully done.
