Excellent Meeting at Westminster.
Interesting Exhibits
ANAHEIM, April L—The pretty village
•f Westminster was thrown into a flutter
of excitement over the meeting of the
meeting of the farmers' Institute on Thurs
day, and its highly respectable Inhabitants
rose to the occasion and lavished the hos
pitality for which they are proverbial on
their guests. Too much praise could not
be given the ladles for. the splendid lunch
eons spread at intervals during the day.
The menu was varied and toothsome and
tbe cooking was simply perfection. The
masting of the Institute took place ln the
school room, which was tastefully deco
rated fpr the occasion, and on the landing
at the top of the stairs was spread sam
ples of the produce for which Westminster
and the peat lands are justly famous.
Among the exhibits was a cose of butter
from the Co-operative creamery, of which
James Moss ls manager and J. R. New
berry ot Los Angeles president. This
oraamery Is now using 6000 pounds of milk
dally and ls turning out butter which is
rapidly finding Its way Into every family ln
Los Angeles.. The creamery has lately se-
& cured the services of A. Hay Bates, a but
maker. Among the exhibits wet* spac
es, ot beets, some ot which weigh Well
on to 100 pounds, but the most Interesting
Item on the table was a large rooster ex
hibited by James Young Anderson, In
charge of a flock of fifteen chickens, an
who betrayed all the solicitude of a mother
for the little ones. The overgrown capon
and his flock excited much curiosity and
admiration. The proceedings of the Insti
tute were opened by an address of welcome
by Mr. G. H. Carlyle of Westminster. In a
graceful little speech he dwelt on tbe great
advantages the farmers' institute was con
ferring on the community at large, and
paid a well-worded tribute to the scientific
gentlemen who had come to teach the peo
ple of Westminster «he right way to do the
fright things in the field, the Orchard and
the dairy. Prof. M. E. Jaffe of Berkeley
replied to Mr. Carlyle's address and paid
Westminster and its famous peat lands sev
eral pretty compliments. Tho address ot
the morning session was then delivered by
Prof. A. J. Cook of Claremont. .His sub
ject was "Silo and Silage." Prof. Cook's
address was eminently practical and was
listened to throughout with marked atten
tion. The morning session closed with a
selection on the gramophone, which was
presided over by Mr. Edson Smith of Santa
Ana. The performance of the wonderful
little Instrument drew forth hearty ap

The afternoon session was opened by a
selection of muslo by the music committee,
which was received with loud applause.
The next Item of Interest was the question
box, answers to which were furnished by
Profs. Sprague and Jaffa. After this Mr.
W. W. Cocke of Downey led off with a most
Interesting paper on "How to Increase the
Products of ths Dairy,''' and Prof. Sprague
sustained his reputation by an able ad
dress on organization, during which he
took occasion to pay his respects to the
Standard Oil trust and other combinations
that know the value of organisation. Prof.
Jaffa on "The Rational Feeding of Live
Stock," and the gramophone on the new
national air brought the afternoon session
to a close.
The leading features of the evening ses
sion were papers by Mrs. J. J, Pyle entitled
"Only a Woman," and the "Reclamation of
Alkali Lands" by Frank Haasard and
"Suggestions for the Home Table" by
Prof. Jaffa of Berkeley. The meetings of
the Institute closed with an Interesting ses
sion this morning ln which prominence was
given to dairy pursuits, and the leading
speakers were Prof. Jaffa and P. A. Raab
of Bolsa. The committee of arrangements
was O. B. Byram, R. O. Shlvely and J. J.
Anderson. The decoration commltte was
Mrs. J. Patterson, Mrs. Caldwell and Miss
G. Dlmmock, and the music committee was
Miss Hattle McCoy, Miss Junkln and Miss
Craig. Too much credit cannot be given
the members of these committees for the
perfecting of the various details that
helped to make the meeting one of the moat
profitable and most enjoyable In the his
tory of the institution.

stream ln the canyon. To give the boys
the practical experience of the affair, they
were marched out, leaving the city at 8
a. m., and by 3 p. m. had reached a point
ten miles out. It waa not very rapid march
ing, but the boys found it somewhat tire
some. Each one was required to carry In
bis knapsack, as rations'- six potatoes.
three lemons, a loaf of bread and a tin
plate. The balance of the supplies wept
along ln two large wagons, and a carriage
was added to the cavalcade, to pick up
the wounded and disabled, but they reached
camp without calling lt into play. A fish
ing party In the canyon had quite a bag
of crackers and canned salmon left after
their lunch, and, seeing the boys looking
hungry, an offer was made of the lunoh.
The little fellows broke ranks and made a
rush for the rations like half-famished
wolves. They had not stopped for rations
since leaving the city, and their appetites
were excellent. The camp will be conduct
ed ln military manner, and the brigade will
returned Saturday, Its members browned
by the exposure, but having enjoyed a
glorious outing.

San Bernardino Brevities
SAN BERNARDINO, April 1.-It Is not
often that the supreme court Is reversed by
the superior court, but such a case hap-
pened when Judge Campbell gave his de
cision ln the case of Harriet S. Fudlckar vs.
the East Riverside Irrigation district. The
case was commenced July 28, 1891, and in
1883 the Judgment was given for the plain
tiff. An appeal was taken to the supreme
court and the lower court was reversed,
the case being sent back for further action.
Since then lt has been In the courts, in
one form and another. A few months ago
the arguments were commenced, and,
when partly through, a halt was called, as
the attorneys claimed they would com
promise the case out of court. These ne
gotiations failed, and the arguments were
resumed again after six months of delay,
and the case was submitted. Yesterday the
decision was again handed down for the
plaintiff, thus reversing the reversal of the
supreme court.
