Says It Would Prove Great Paying In.
. dußtrial Investment and Attract
Enormous Business— Suggests San
Pedro as Ideal Location
Col. Thomas Ewlng of San Francisco,
for many years, first vice president of
the American Mining congress, and one
of the best informed mining men in the
•west,' declares that one of the great
est mistakes Los Angeles Is making
is In not taking up the building of a
great reduction plant for the ores of
the southwest country.
One of the first to become cognizant
of | the mineral resources of the Gold T
field district, and a man who has at
his finger tips the mining conditions of
the Pacific coast. Col. Ewlng talked
last night at the Angelus as a man who
knows whereof he speaks.
"This southwest is a pet of mine,"
he continued, "and I have always
fought for it. It is great in many
things. I hope that a great reduction
pjant is in store for it some day in the
not far distant future. Such an enter
prise would be one of the greatest
paying industrial investments which
local or other capitalists could make.
Suggests Location
The place for it would be somewhere
along the water front of San Pedro,
where there would be easy access by
water and land. The' Clark road is
opening up a great country and a great
'business would come to the enterprise
bythe water route from Mexico.
;,,.!'This , is saying nothing of the re
sources' of the mountains In the vicln
ity.""di{e "mlne^iti' Orange county, oper
ated largely by Los Angelea capital
and producing 100 tons of ore a day,
is sending its output to Tacoma, Wash.,
for smelting, as are many mines in
.-.'■ ?'The bankers of Colorado and Utah
'realise, the benefit of such an Insti
tution and are ready to loan to the
smelting company from ten to twenty
millions of dollars on the ore in their
blAs. ; ■;■ ■,
' : '''What would a well-equipped reduc
tion plant cost?. I do not believe such
an i enterprise should be undertaken
with less than $1,500,000 ;to finance It.
That would erect a* plant with a capac
ity ranging between 800 and 1000 tons
of ore a day."

At the Grand
To call Charles E. Blaney's "Across
the Pacific" a thrilling melodrama Is
to be trite and commonplace. It makes
the ordinary Grand opera house offer
ing as tame as a ptnk tea, and at both
performances yesterday the progress of
the play was made constantly Interest
ing by the audiences' vociferous ap
proval of the hero and threatening atti
tude toward the villain.
Besides these conventional occasions
for hisses or cheers, American flags
and soldiers and every other known
stage device for appealing to the senti
ments of a patriotic house full of peo
ple were effectually used. Some idea
of the play can be had from the follow
ing synopsis of scenes as printed in the
Act I— Small village in Montana.
Act ll— Scene 1, street in Chinatown,
San Francisco; scene 2, Chinese restau
rant. Act III — Dock of the Trans
pacific Steamship company; departure
of the United States transport City of
Omaha with volunteers for the Philip
pines. Act IV — Scene 1, General Law
ton's headquarters In the field, Philip
pine islands; scene 2, blookhouse No. 7.
The fight, Introducing a genuine United
States rapid fire machine gun, used in
the attack on San Juan hill.
It is a play which calls for the entire
cast of the TJlrich stock company and
many extra people, and nearly all of
them are in roles well suited to their
abilities. Richard Buhler is more heroic
than ever and Miss Ethel Clifton gives
a strong performance as Elsie Escott.
"Soldier? of Fortune"
"Soldiers of Fortune," the best of the
Richard Harding Davis crop of plays,
will be given at the Belasco theater
tonight for the first time by a stock
organization anywhere. It will serve
to introduce White Whlttlesey in a role
totally unlike anything he has offered
during his several visits to Los An
The part that will be played by Whlt
tlesey Is the heroic young American
engineer, Robert Clay, who goes to
South America to superintend a mine
belonging to New York capitalists and
finds himself in the midst of a Latin
uprising of considerable proportions.
Of course it Is "up to" Clay to quell
the rebellious spirits, and he promptly
proceeds to do this in real American
strenuous fashion. The role of the en
gineer, Clay, will, it Is said, afford
Whlttlesey a capital chance to display
his acting, even to better advantage
than did the comedy, "Sheridan,"
which was played by Whlttlesey and
the Belascoltes with much success last
In "Soldiers of Fortune" the Belasco
stage director, George W. Barnum,
will be very much to the fore as Mc-
Williams Clay's right hand man. The
other Belasco players will all be in
the cast of "Soldiers of Fortune."
"Mlzpah" at Burbank
The biblical drama of "Mlzpah," by
F.lla Wheeler Wilcox and Luscombe
Searelle opened at the Burbank theater
yesterday for a week's revival, and two
large and enthusiastic audiences gave
vigorous evidence of the play's popu
Its original production here made the
people of Los Angeles familiar with
the piece and it is sufficient to say that
it is being given In the same elaborate
and satisfactory manner and with prao
tically the same cast.
Manager Morosco deserves the great
est praise for his succes as a producer
o£ original plays, and in nearly every
instance he has shown excellent Judg
ment and discrimination. "Mispah" is
the best of these new plays, which
have been produced here and there is
little doubt but that with right staging
and a good company It will be wel
comed In New York.
The management announces a big
advance sale for the entire week. Fri

says "Slack magic is
relic of superstition
Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall Explains Origin
of the Theory and
Scoffs at It
Several hundred people were unsuc
cessful in obtaining standing room in
Blanchard hall last evening when Dr.
Alexander J. Mclvor-Tyndall discoursed
on the subject of "Magic," answering
the query as to 'who are the black
magicians?" Preceding the lecture
Arthur Hole rendered "A Vision of the
Eternal City."
Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall said in part:
"Superstition dies hard. In this age,
which is unanimously designated as
"enlightened," we find much ignorance
and, consequently, superstition in re
gard to the word 'occult' The word
is harmless enough in itself, merely
signifying 'hidden' or 'not seen,' and
yet to many it is a synonym for all that
is obscure and mysterious and 'wicked.
"Ignorance invests a harmless word
with terrible significance. The word
'magician' Is a case In point. Origin
ally it was used to signify 'priest
craft,' which .included spiritual wis
dom and the power of direct communi
cation with the- Invisible world of spirit.
"In ancient, times a priest was vene
rated, not so much because of his su
perior goodness but because of his sup
posed power to communicate with
angels and the Almighty. Persons pos
sessing this supposed power gradually
came to be called 'magi,' and from the
original meaning of the word we de
rive our modern application of the word
"Naturally as the dense ignorance of
the laity became leavened by education,
much of the knowledge of the priest
hood spread through the masses and the
priests could no longer claim the ex
clußive right to so-called 'magical'
"It was then that the term 'black
magic' was invented. 'Black magic'
stood for knowledge held by the people,
and 'white magic' denoted the knowl
edge of the priesthood. The one came
from angels and the other from demonß,
but both were acknowledged to be of
supernatural origin.
"Time is annihilated when we see
that the self same Ignorance prevails
now as In the time of the ancient
Egyptians, for we find one branch
of metaphysicians accusing another
branch of 'black magic' when they per
form cures, or otherwise demonstrate
their knowledge of occultism. Evi
dently, then, the 'black' magicians are
those who differ from us in their con
ception of the origin of power. They
are 'the other fellow.'*' •/'
"It is well to remember that all
power Is from the same source— there
can be no other. The direction of that
power determines the result, and the
direction is determined by motive.
WhethPr the result be constructive or
destructive, the source is the same and
can be neither 'white' nor 'black.' "
Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall will hold class
meetings on Monday, Wednesday and
Friday afternoons and evenings of this
week at the Mclvor-Tyndall Institute,
1501 South Grand avenue, giving in
struction in the development and direc
tion of power. Next Sunday evening
the subject of discourse will be "Tha
Psychology of Woman's Rights."

Expert Gauger of Popular Sentiment
Discounts Idea That Angelenos
Will Enjoy Sane Fourth
of July
With a sane Fourth of July and a
growing belief on the part of the elders
that there Is not wholesome fun in the
shooting of firecrackers, Angelenos will
nevertheless spend something like $76,
000 in smoke and noise on Independence
day. That Is the estimate placed by
one of the large retail dealers who
makes it a point to gauge the popular
desire In the fireworks line many weeks
before the populace Itself does. ■
This $75,000 does not include the red
lemonade, the peanuts and the popcorn,
which are a part of the great national
holiday Just as much as they are of the
Dozens of small dealers have gone
into business in vacant stores during
the past few days, having fireworks as
their sole stock in trade, who, following
the passing of the Fourth, will fold their
tents as the Arabs and as silently steal
Department stores, which do not care
to take the risk of dealing In com
bustibles along with their other Unw
of merchandise, have leased small stores
in different portions of the city, whera
as "annexes" the goods are sold.
Every Chinese shop has its full line
of ,noise makers which are guaranteed
to be of direct importation from the
Celestial kingdom. In spite of this fact,
however, a very large percentage of the
material with which Young America
will show its patriotism has landed in
Los Angeles in boxes which were of
American make and with trade marks
suspiciously similar to those of the
large eastern fireworks manufactories.
The truth is that today the queue
wearing Celestial is far In the rear of
his American brother In the making of
both day and night fireworks, and at
the present time, with his usual lack of
originality, he is patterning after the
novelties which are being put out by
the American manufacturers.
This year there has been little im
provement over the popular selling nov
elties of last season. The "nigger
chaser" la' just as much in evidence
as It was twenty years ago. Bo Is the
Roman | candle, the skyrocket and the
what-not that brought JoygUioess and
finger burns to those who have since
outgrown the noise making age.
On an average, every person in Los
Angeles will spend less than 35 cents
for their Fourth of July fun in fire
works, but the aggregate will be pro
ductive of much noise.
Then there is the trip to the ■ beach
with thousands of Angelenos will
take and the thousand and one little
expenses which will make the coming
day of Jubilation also one of consider
able expense.
Maine School Teacher Is Confident of
Success — Has Made Deep Study
of Frozen Region
Special to The Herald.
NORWAY/, Me., June 25.— Love for
adventure and a desire to be the first
woman to reach the north pole has
caused Miss Mamie Babb to abandon
school teaching, to sail, she says,' with
Lieutenant Commander Robert E.
Peary in his quest of the north pole.
From the peak of the explorer's new
steamer will float an American flag
presented Miss Babb by her pupils at
the little school at North Harpswell.
"What danger can there be in such a
Journey?" she asks when the perilß of
an arctic trip are pointed out to her by
relatives who are opposed to her going.
"1 shall be the first woman to reach
the pole, because I know Mr. Peary will
find it this time."
• Mrs. Peary and her datighter Marie,
12 years old, also will be passengers on
the Roosevelt, but they will return
home when the steamer arrives at the
point where relief stations are to be
established. Miss Babb says she will
stick to the ship until the end.
"If the men stand the trip I guess I
can," she saya.
Miss Babb is 80 years old, tall and
handsome. For several years she has
lived with an uncle and aunt at West
Brook, who are greatly averse to the
trip she Is about to take.
Miss Babb has always been a friend
of Mrs. Peary, and as a stenographer
has done much of Lieutenant Peary'a
clerical work. She has read much about
the frosen regions. She has prepared
maps and routes for the coming trip
and' all have been approved by Mr.
Peary when submitted to htm for ex

explained to her in great detail what

for another leave of absence. Then it
was that she began to think what a
nice Journey the voyage would be for
a woman to make.

and stenography, and is an expert at

PHILADELPHIA. Pa., June 26.—
When the will of Charlotte 1). Sage was
admitted to probate today one of the
most curious clauses ever contained
in a document of this kind was brought
to light. The estate is valued at $350
and the will disposes of it in this wise:
"I bequeath to my beloved sister (if
she promises to allow my father, Benja
min F. Sage, of beloved memory, all the
cigars he wants, also all the vests he
likes to wear In the winter) all my per
scnal and real estate I die possessed
of or to which I shall be entitled at the
time of my decease."
' Inquiry developed the fact that Miss
Sage's father, who is an elderly man,
has a fondness for cigars. Some time
ago his eldest daughter refused to allow
him to smoke the usual number on ac
count of his health. He' felt, the loss
of tobacco keenly. Ilia fondness for
fancy wiastcoats amounted to a hobby.
