Disgruntled at What They Deem In
considerate Conduct—Mountain
Fires Burning Again
PASADENA. Aug. t.—(Off Ice of The Her
ald, 5S East Colorado street.) There are
colored men of all shapes and sizes, all
shades of color, and arrayed in all kinds of
clothes, swarming about town just at pres
cht. They are delegates and visitors to the
Afro-American and Douglass leagues state
congress, which convened ln G, A. R. hull
this afternoon at 2 oclock. The object of
theße organizations is the betterment of the
colored race. It Is expected that a highly
Interesting and beneficial session will b»
held during the four days beginning today.
Eleven societies of the league are at pres
ent existing in Southern California and
they embrace the intellectual element of the
colored population. The delegates number
about 125 and the visitors as many! again.
Secretary H. W. Turner of this city has had
charge of the business of the congress and
program has been prepared which includes
some first-class speakers.
This afternoon's session was opened with
the calling to order by Vice-President C. C.
Flint of Los Angeles; prayer by Rev. Her
ring of this city; music by the band; read
ing of roll call by Secretary Turner; address
of welcome by Trustee Ed Lockett, and re
sponse hy President Dudley Sebree of Stock
ton. Mr. Lockett extended the glad hand ot
welcome to the guests in behalf of the city,
of Pasadena and complimented them upon
the progress they have made since the war.
Mr. Lockett was tendered a vote of thanks.
Mr. Sebree replied that the society was
for the upbuilding of the colored people and
to try and devise means to help the working
class. He stated that Japanese and Chlnesa
cooks were given preference over colored
The afternoon was mainly devoted to
speechraaking and preliminary organization
work. J. Alexander of Los Angeles, J. C.
Carter of Riverside and H. H. Harper of
this city were chosen assistant secretaries.
The following committee on credentials was
selected: H. W. Turner, J. C. Carter and
J. L. Edmnuds of Pasadena; C. C. Flint of
Los Angeles, C. C. Carter of Redlands, J.
Q. Fltzbrice of Bakersfield, Mrs. T. J. Jean
of Pasadena, J. Summers of Oakland, T. B.
Morton of San Francisco and Laws of San
/ Diego. This evening the report of the com
mittee on credentials was heard and ac
Troop D Rejected
Troop D, colored cavalry, marched about
thirty strong behind the band to the hall
this evening, under command of Captain
Thomas Johnson. This evening's session
was lively. Troop D had elected three dele
gates, Messrs. G. H. Clark, W. Strother and
W. C. Dent ,to the convention and hoped to
seat them and also be admitted ln a body
as full-fledged members. A delegate made
a motion to this effect. The motion waf»
seconded, but was not put before the house,
and as a consequence the soldier boys felt
very much hurt. They accuse the president
ot having been "fixed.' Delegate Morton
moved that the company be admitted as
honorary members, with the right of a voice
In the congress, but without the right to
vote. Tis did not suit the troop. Its cap
tain made a little speech, declaring that he
did not think his men were receiving fair
play, and then the troop marched in im
pressive fashion from the assemblage, fol
lowed by applause.
The troop boys say they had a perfect
right to be received Into the convention, as,
according to the constitution, any society of
Afro-Americans may be received. They
state furthermore that inasmuch as the
troop had made plans and arrangements for
a benefit military ball to be given tomorrow
evening, the authorities of the congress had
been offended, for, said they, there Is al
ways disorderly conduct accompanying
these balls. Thus the congress "had it In"
for the troop, and defends Its refusal to
admit the troop on the ground that the
troop Is not composed of Afro-Americans;
that is, the members, though negroes surely
enough ,are notl members of the' league.
But the company has sold a hundred or
more tickets for the ball, and vows that it
will prove a success despite the congress.
Evening Session
Mrs. Thompson, daughter of John Brown,
and husband were escorted to the platform
and seated, the audience rising ln their
seats during the ceremony. Several selec
tions were given by the band.
J. L. Edmons of South Pasadena deliv
ered an address on "The Alms and Pur
poses of the) Afro-American League and
How Best to Accomplish Them." He stated
that the colored race has done compara
tively little for Itself and that It Is high
time for them to be up and doing. He set
forth that the black man's case could be
bettered by organized action, agitation and
effort. "We Willi be better off when wo
think no more of political parties than they
think of us."
Miss Eva Lawson sang a solo. Rev. Till
man Brown delivered an address upon "The
Negro as a Patriot and Soldier."
More Mountain Fires
The mountain flre which was supposed
to have been thoroughly extinguished
cropped out again today and this evening
a big blaze could be seen. Telephone com
munication with Alpine tavern elicited 1 the
statement that they could not see the fire.
Later it could' be plainly seen, however. A
better view could be had from Mount Wil
son. Manager Wilcox telephoned to Pres
ident Holmes of the Toll Road company
that the fire was raging fiercely between
Mount Markham and Mount San Gabriel,
ten miles away, and was growing hotter
and bigger all the time. He would advise
further in the morning. The fire seems to
have started somewhere in Millard or Lit
tle Bear canyons about where it started
before, and taking an opposite course from
that previously taken Is burning over an
entirely new district. Echo Momuntaln,
It Is understood, has about thlry men at
present available to flght the flre.
Runaway Accident
Mrs. Stoover and nieces, the Misses Gil
bert, were victims of a runaway accident
this evening at about 5 oclock, near Palm
avenue, South Pasadena. They were driv
ing along the side of the electric roadiwhen
their horses shied at the wrecking car and
ran away. The buggy was upset and the
occupants thrown out. The elder Mlss

but her 12-year-old sister had her left arm

The New Arrivals
AVALON, Catallna Island, Aug. 2.—The
biggest fish that has been captured this
season was brought in last night. He was
one of six Jewfish caught by Messrs. N. B.
Mead and A. N. Mead. The party started
about 3 o'clock yesterday morning, with
Jim Gardner as boatman, in tow of the
launch Catallna, they made the run to the
other side of the Island ln a very short
time. The fishing grounds were reached
just when the nsh were beginning to look
around for their breakfast. When the lines
were first put down some of tbe smaller fish
would steal the bait en route for the bot
tom. The lines had been down but a short
time when there was a commotion below,
and a moment later, with the exclamation
"I've got him!" N. B. Mead found himself
fast to a fish. For a few mtmites It was
doubtful whether he had the ffsh or the fish
had him; but the line was good and strong,
and In twenty minutes he was hauled into
the boat. The first fish had only Just been
landed when Mr. A. N. Mead repeated the
performance. When the fish were put on
the scales the three caught by N. B. Mead
weighed 356, 90 and 125 pounds, and A. N.
Mead's trophies weighed 140, 185 and 148.
All the lish were taken on hand lines, so
that the record made by Mr. Rider remains
The launch Santa Ana was chartered by
Mr. B. M. Clark, and a trip to Seal Rocks
made yesterday morning. A couple of yel
lowtail were pulled in just for the fun of
the thing.
All of tho launches have beeen busy the
past two or three days carrying parties to
the Isthmus, which is becoming a popular
picnic ground.
The goats seem to be catching It ln good
style all the time. There were two parties
out yesterday, and each brought in two
goats. C. J. and A. W. Smith were re
sponsible fo.' a couple.
Mr. Frazer, of San Francisco, and Mr.
Curtis, of Los Angeles, were out ln the
"Puffing Pig," with Hotson as boatman,
for a short time In the afternoon, and
caught one yellowtail and four barracuda.
There ure lots of eels around the coast this
year, and some ot them get fast to a hook
once ln a while. The eels will wrap them
selves around seaweed, and so strong Is
their grip that large patches of kelp are
brought up with the slimy fish-snake.
When the eel is In the boat he generally
drives the human occupants to the bow or
stern, as his sharp teeth will bite a hole In
the soft wood of the rail as easily as not.

been reported to the Canadian Parliament
to be In tbe neighborhood ot $400,000, leaving
a net annual gain to the government of over
$2,000,000. The largest Individual amount

Riverside's Fusion Ticket—Republican
Lines of Defense—A Dan
gerous Runaway
RIVERSIDE, Aug. 2.-The now famous
Langley alimony case was decided by
Judge Noyes today after being In the court
for several months. The court granted
the petition of the plaintiff, Mrs. Langley,
for an Increaße ot alimony from $35 a
month to 175. In the decision the court
severely scores Langley for the heartless
treotment accorded bis wife, and winds
up with the assertion that many far bet
ter men than Langley are serving time ln
the state penitentiaries. During the trial
of the case the past few days Langley
was accompanied by a woman whom the
evidence showed he was supporting m a
princely manner, while his wife and de
pendent daughter, ln this city, were com
pelled to get along as best they could.
The Langleys formed at one time) a lead
ing family of this city, and Langley was
considered one of the financial heavy
weights of the business world here. He
was a partner In the long and well-known
fruit shipping firm of Cook & Langley,
which was a pioneer ln the shipment of
California oranges. He Is now employed
by a leading fruit firm In Fresno, and
claims to be without any means except a
monthly salary of *73, which story neither
the court nor any one else of his acquaint
ance believes.

In all probability the fusion ticket will
read about as follows after the conven
tions of the parties named have been held:

Criticism of Doctors Who Know
the Danger
POMONA, Aug. 2.—A. T. Currier was ln
town this morning, making arrangements
for the funeral of the smallpox nurse, who
died of the disease last night. Like the
first victim, he will be burled on the side
hill, near the house In which he died. Mr.
Currier stnted that the nurse who came
out last evening from Los Angeles has had
considerable experience with the disease.
The nurse told him that it was the worst
kind of smallpox that he had ever seen.
Before death a dropsical condition sets In.
Tho old Mexican lady, who was naturally
slim, weighed about 300 pounds after death.
While due credit Is being given those who
have charge of the care of the sick and
also of the quarantine regulations, there
is nevertheless a disposition to criticise
those who have the right to Issue instruct
tlons as to the manner nf burying the dead
for not ordering the use of lime. Physicians
say thnt the germ can remain In a dormant
condition for thirty years and then cause
trouble. Several of our citizens deem it
a very unwise move to simply follow the
usual methods ln burying the dead, even
If It be on a lonely side hill, where the
gang plow or mower may pass but once a
year or some stray animal pasters.
