A NARROW ESCAPE
JACOB MATRR HTJNQ BETWEEN
UK AND DEATH
While Making a Connection With a
Live Wire He Bell—Was
Badly Burned
REDLANDS, May n.Jacg Mater, elec
trician for the Redlands Electric Light and
Power company, hud a thrilling experience
and a very narrow escape from death. He
was encaged In the dangerous work of
making a connection with a live wire on
the pole which stands at the alley next to
Edwards' grocery. The superintendent
and a couple of men were working ln the
alley not more than a hundred feet away.
Maier was at tbe top of the pole among
the wires and ln the act of making the
dangerous connection, when his hand came
la contact with the wire. He Instantly be
came unconscious and fell upon the wires
and cross-beam. Those at work near him
and a number of persons observed his per
ilous condition and ran to his rescue; his
flesh was burning and he was hanging
bead downward, apparently ready to drop
to the pavement below. Frank Forester
climbed the pole and cut the wire. This
was dona In a minute, and no doubt saved
the" man's life. A great crowd soon gath
ered, who, not aware that the live wire
had been cut and the current turned oft,
was much excited. They were soon re
lieved of their fears and much gratified
that the man would live.
While a rope was being tied around his
body be showed some signs of conscious
ness, and a sigh of relief went up from the
crowd. When lowered to the roof he soon
bcame conscious and realized his narrow
escape.
He was taken Into the armory and Drs.
Blythe and Sanborn were summoned. The
thumb and middle finger of the left hand
were burned to the bone, and slight burns
were on the right hand and neck. Super
intendent Ensign stated that hereafter the
current would be turned off when connec
tions are made.
GOOD THINGS FOR THE BOYS
Pomona Remembers the Seventh Reg
iment—City Trustees
POMONA, May 17.—As stated In the
Herald to-day, a subscription was taker,
up this morning to send oranges and lem
ons and also butter and eggs, to the boys
at the Presidio. The butter and eggs were
ordered by wire delivered from a whole
sale bouse ln San Francisco, the fruit will
be shipped from here to-night, fifty boxes
ln all. Our citlxens are very anxious to
know what the rules are governing the
oommlsary department of individual com
panies, when it comes to transportation
by steamers, whether the companies will
be permitted to take along goods shipped
them in large quantities. In the many
letters that still are coming to hand, the
boys invariably complain of being half
starved. In talking with many of the old
soldiers It appears that the same com
plaint was made ln the days of '61, but
that after a few weeks' service the rations,
though similar in quantity, were more
than ample. Coming from the garden
•pot of the earth, and from a land over
flowing with milk and honey, It goes a lit
tle hard at first.
Senator S. N. Androus returned from
San Francisco last evening.
Tbe city trustees met this afternoon in
adjourned session. Fire department mat
ters were the chief topic. The trustees op
posed the proposed Are alarm system, be
lieving the expenditure of S2OOO at this time
to be inopportune. Fire Chief Wilkinson
and E. M. Keller were present and ad
dressed the board in regard to furnishing
a fire alarm system. There was quite a
lively discussion over the expenses of the
department during the past year. Pat
terson and Landon resigned from the
committee on the fire alarm system and
Raynes and Hlnman were appointed.
Fred Smith resigned as library trustee,
and Stoddard Jess was appointed to fill
the vacancy.
Rev. Father P. J. Fisher of this city will
deliver a lecture at the cathedral ln Los
Angeles to-night under the auspices of
the Catholic Truth society.
The commencement exercises of Lords
burg college were held last evening.
The Union Water company has deter
mined to put ln meters throughout the
city. They will charge 112 for each meter
or rent them at 50 cents per month each.
The rates will be 4000 gallons or less, Si
per month and 15 cents per month for each
additional thousand gallons.
J. M. Studebaker of the firm of Stude
baker Bros, of South Bend, Ind., Is visit

CALIFIA
She Second Performance Enjoyed by a
Pair-Sized Audience
The second presentation of "Callfla,"
tbe California romance, was given last
evening at the Los Angeles theater to a
fair-sized audience. Last night's perform
ance was a decided Improvement over the
first, the delays between scenes being
shorter and the entire entertainment mov
ing forward more smoothly and expedi
tiously.
The first act and the last are especially
attractive and the military scenes ap
peal to the patriotic sentiment. In present
ing the flag to the troops supposed to be
leaving for Cuba, J. J. Oosper Is quite car
ried away by the occasion.
The minuet in the society scene Is a pic
ture of the past ln Its stately movements.
The solos ln the last scene arouae en
thusiasm. Mr. Quintan's rendering of the
"Marseillaise," "Cuba Libre," by Miss
Keller;" "Rule Britannia" by the chorus of
English and Scotch; the "Wearing of the
, Green," by the Irish quartet, and finally
the "Star Spangled Banner," reach a cli
max of enthusiasm with the audience.
Between the acts Rev. A. C. Smither
briefly presented the claims of the Chris
tian hospital, the purpose of the enter
tainment being to Increase the funds and
enable the association to erect a larger
building. W. C. Patterson, previous to
tbe last scene, humorously announced the
completion of the San Pedro harbor, which
It la supposed to celebrate.
Mloaee Jessie Mills, Mary Belle Dally,
Mrs. Frank Bryson and Harry Porter filled
In the changes of scenes with solos.
REMEMBERED
Baa Biago People Baise $300 for the

The suggestion made by Colonel A. O.
Oatsen to raise a puree tor the members
Of Company B, who represent this city ln

WILL QUIT WORK
Pacific Rolling Mills Will Soon Be
Shut Down
SAN FRANCISCO, May 17.—The Bulle
tin this afternoon says:
The directors of the Pacific Coast Roll
ing Mills, in this city, have decided to close
the establishment and terminate the busi
ness. It is declared that the corporation
Is perfectly solvent and that the closing of
Its affairs at this time was decided upon
so that every Indebtedness of the company
could be paid, tt being argued that the
business has been operating at a loss and
that creditors would suffer considerably
It the mills were kept ln operation. There
are $713,000 worth of outstanding bonds, and
these, with the other claims against the
company, will bring tbe aggregate indebt
edness of the company up to nearly $800,000.
Most of the bonds of the company are held
ln this city.
The reason given for the losses referred
to Is that the company cannot compete with
the prices of labor and material now exist
ing in the Eastern States.
The Pacific Rolling Mills was probably
second ln size to the Union Iron Wor"»s on
this coast, and, like the latter concern, had
done much contract work for the govern
ment, especially ln the way of large cast
lngs for the warships built here. It Is gen
erally expected that the creditors of the
company will agree to a peaceful termina
tion of its affairs.
TURNED TURTLE
One-Half of the Gresham Goes to the
Bottom
OGDENSBURG, N. V., May 17.-One-half
of the revenue cutter Gresham went to the
bottom of the St. Lawrence river this
morning and now rests ln 25 feet of water.
The steamer had been cut In two for pas
sage through the Canadian canals to
Montreal, where she was to be re-unlted
and sent to join the navy. While waiting
for the tugs today to start down the river,
the bow section, 48 feet in length, suddenl>
careened to one side forcing that pontoon
under the water. The upper pontoon
shifted its position, drawing the other pon
toon entirely away from the boat section,
almost turning It bottomslde up. Fourteen
seamen were thrown into the water, but
all escaped. The accident was caused by
overloading the top deck, making a small
section top heavy. The Iron-clad steam
yacht Comanche belonging to Mark Han
na, Is passing! down the St. Lawrence canal
en route to New York to be turned over to
the government to use for war purposes.
THERE IS HOPE
A Special Meeting of the Board of
Education Today
That matter of the selection of a new
system of penmanship for the schools Is
not, It seems, to go by default, for a meet
ing of the board of education has been
called for this morning at 10 o'clock, and
Mr. Webb and others may yet And them
selves dethroned.
The call for a special meeting Is signed
by Messrs. Mclnerney, Bragg and Braly,
and the Incidents of the last regular ses
sion of the board warrant this call being
termed sensational. It would not be sur
prising if the meeting this morning eclipsed
ln turbulance that of Monday.

A shipment of Arizona alfalfa hay has
just been received. It cost 113 per ton.

A Baltimore Fire
BALTIMORE, May 17.—A Aerce fire was
discovered about 1 o'clock this afternoon
among a lot of cotton, turpentine and
other highly inflammable material stored
for shipment on the pier of the Old Bay Line
Steamship Company at the foot of Concord
street, this city. When it was gotten under
control, after an hour's hard work, the
freight sheds had been destroyed, together
with their contents, and several adjacent
buildings were damaged, involving a loss
estimated at from $50,000 to $75,000. The
large steamer Alabama, belonging to the
same company, was loading when the Are
started and was scorched somewhat but a
tug towed her into midstream and saved
her.
Trip of the Uncas
MADRID, May 17, 1:30 a. m.—Dispatches
from Havana indicate that it Is the opin
ion there among the Spaniards that the
real object of the Uncas' visit there was
to ascertain whether the Cape Verde fleet
had arrived, hence the care taken by tho
Spanish officials to keep the Uncas at a
safe distance.
The Uncas Is the boat sent to Havana
on Sunday under a flag of truce to nego- j
tiate for the exchange of two American
newspaper men captured by the Span
lards. Two of the Spanish captives at
Fort McPherson, Atlanta, were to be sent
to Havana in exchange for the American
prisoners.

GALVESTON, Tex., May 17.—The Nor
wegian steamer Transit. Captain Schlyt
ter, which arrived from Progresso, ln quar
antine last night, reports having heard
heavy cannonading 100 miles off Galveston
ln the Gulf of Mexico, yesterday, while en
route to this port. It lasted from Aye to
ten minutes, but the Transit did not tarry
to investigate. The presumption Is thst
the cannonading was a patrol boat In prac
tice. Alarmists think It was by scouting
vessels of the Spanish Cape Verde fleet,
last reported at Curacoa.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
Little Maggie Gold mining claim, ln the
Plnacate mining district, six miles wes'
of Perrls, Riverside county; the best
chance for a practical miner with a little
ready money to get hold of a geunlne,
producing mine that there is ln Califor
nia today. The Little Maggie has been
worked off and on in a primitive, hand-to
mouth way for several years, but never to
any great depth. Most of the work has
been drifting and stoplng, "above the
water." The water comes ln at6o ft., and
at 7S ft. there Is so much ot It that fur
ther sinking on the vein becomes Imprac
ticable without machinery, which the
present and former owners, being poor
men, have not been able to buy. But the
gold Is there, and whoever will go 75 ft.
further down will have a mine that will
make his fortune. The claim Is 1500 ft.
long, with the ledge in sight every foot
of the way, and we will forfeit $500 If
there Is a foot of It ln which there Is
not gold. The average yield In the aras
tra, extending over a period of four years,
has been about $60 to tbe ton of ore. The
best ore, and the most of It, has been
found at the greatest depth—that Is, be
low the water level. We are convinced,
not only from our own experience, but
from that of the Good Hope, the Gavllan
and other mines In the neighborhood,
that depth Is all that Is necessary to In
sure a great mine. Neither of the mines
mentioned had at a like depth with the
Little Maggie anything like the showing
the latter has. And the water, though
troublesome to us, because we lack ma
chinery with which to take care of It, Is
in itself valuable. It could be sold for a
good price any day, though of course It
will be needed on the property whenever a
mill is put up. There Is enough to run
ten stamps and possibly twenty. The
property Is ln every way an Interesting
one. We offer It for sale simply because
we haven't the means to develop It as
It ought to be to be profitable. We will
sell It on the most liberal terms, and give
the buyer every opportunity to Investi
gate and satisfy himself of Its value
before he Invests a cent. For further
information about It see J. M. HA9SON,
at the office of Sherwood & Koyer, 144
