A Flourishing Organization
of Prominent and
Artists, Authors, Newspaper
and Magazine Writers in
PRACTICALLY A LECTURE CLUB
Mr. J. C. Harvey Entertains the Ladies
With a Sketch of His Ideal
LOS ANGELES, Cat., May B.— The Fri
day Club, an oiganization of ladies, with
the largest membership of any similar as
sociation on the Pacific Coast, held a regu
lar meeting at its hall on South Broad
way this forenoon. This organization con
tains many of the most prominent and
intellectual women of Southern California.
Many of them are noted for works of char
ity in the community. Among the mem
bers may be found artists, authors, news
paper apd magazine writers. A large pro
portion are suffragists.
To a Call correspondent, who was pres
ent on this occasion, many of the ladies
expressed the heartiest approval of the
paper's "new departure." This associa
tion of splendid women is practically a
lecture clnb. Several gentlemen and ladies
of National reputation have lectured be
fore the body on a wide range of topics.
These addresses or essays are followed by
promiscuous discussion and plying of
questions to the speaker. There are few
if any "dummies" in the organization,
and while many of these ladies are house
wives they believe in mixing braibs with
their everyday duties.
The officers are: President emeritus,
Mrs. C. M. Severance : president, Mrs. 3. A.
Osgood; vice presidents, Mrs. W. A. Spald
ing, Mrs. B.C. Whiting; secretary, Mrs.
G. H. Wadleigh; treasurer, Mrs. G. M.
The subject this morning was "A Trop
ical Garden in Southern California and a
Few Notes on Orchids," by J. C. Harvey.
Mr. Harvey is president of the Los An
geles Botanical Society and is especially
interested in the experimental garden this
society has established in Elysian Park in
this city. Mr. Harvey has given the col
lection of orchids presented him by John
D. Rockefeller to East Side Park, his de
sire to benefit and beautify the city being
as great as his love for flowers.
The speaker commenced his paper with
a little sketch on the threshold of the
equatorial region and touched with graphic
lights the magnificent beauty of its vege
tation, the color of the beautiful forests,
the massive dome-like structure of the
trees, the independent growth of para
sites, ferns and numberless aerial plants,
and the prodigious influence of warmth
and moisture were all shown in high re
lief. Gorgeous bird- winged butterflies,
such as toe ornithopetera and bapilos, reach
their maximum size and beauty here.
Of orchids, Mr. Harvey exhibited num
berless plates of these curious and beautiful
plants found in Asia, Africa, Peru, Brazil,
Mexico, the West Indies, Madagascar and
the adjacent islands. The speaker touched
on the extreme beauty of the orchids, the
aerial and terrestrial, the former found in
hot regions on the banks of streams, and
constantly bathed by spray, and the latter
in temperate regions. He further delinea
ted the capricious nature of the orchid, its
enrious structure and habits. This splen
did race of plants owes much of its beauty
to the fact that nature abhors self-fertiliza
tion, and in this class of plants at least,
has provided marvelous contrivances by
which the pollen is protected from the
vicissitudes attending other flowers, and
ultimately disseminated by the aid of
Mr- Harvey then turned to the tropical
garden, and outlined the beauty that could
be produced by the laying out of the same.
The ideal garden should not be less than
200 feet front and 200 feet deep. The resi
dence should be built on one side with a
wide sweep of sward fn front.
The essay and aftertalk were very de
lightful and greatly enjoyed by the club,
the ideal garden portrayed by Mr. Harvey
being greatly appreciated by the many
lovers of flowers.
A Los Angeles Teamster Ha* to Take
\y;-:-'. . Hi* Own Medicine. •
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May B.— "The
man not afraid to wantonly beat his
horses" got his deserts here this morning
on South Broadway. G. A. Phelps is the
getlem&n in question. In a most vicious
and inexcusable manner he was found by
J. E. Kelly belaboring his team with a
horsewhip. The good Samaritan protested
against the cruelty, but all in vain. The
human brute said he owned the horses
and would do as tarnation pleased. Kelly
again urged cessation of "horsetilities" to
no purpose; then all of a sudden he
snatched the whip from Phelps' hand and
with great zeal applied it over his head
and shoulders, and finally compelled him
to get into tbe wagon and accompany
Kelly to the police station, where Phelps
was turned over to Humane Officer Clark.
Phelps admitted that he had done wrong,
and further stated that he was ashamed of
himself. Mr. Clark was so impressed with
Phelps' sincerity that he allowed him to
go, and soon after Kelly and Phelps drove
PASADENA'N BOGUS RARON.
He Play* Havoc With the Fair Bex and
. Hotel- Keepers.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May B.—Pasa
dena has had an experience with a bogus
Baron, who filled several roles with about
equal grace and dignity. ; He was first the
son of a great' Prussian general."; His cheek
and pretensions gave . him passport into
the "bes t circles, and he made court to
- one .of Pasadena's handsomest young
adies, who, until ' his real . character was
suspected, gave the claimant to "high
}■ title" every encouragement, for this par
" ticular "Baron" not only sported i a legiti
mate- title, but was— in his mind,' at j least
—a man of prodigious wealth. :■ -';
But he was a bibulous "Baron," and had
the questionable habit of forgetting to pay.
his small bills, including : one for board
and lodging, to"his accommodating land
. lords. This was considered truly baronial,
but other things, did Pasadena's -Baron
which excited' grave doubt in the minds of
some of the peopla with whom he associ
ated regarding his title, and they wrote to
certain San Francisco people whose names
had l>een used by him, and the reply
was made that his name and title were
Then toe Baron changed the fiction he
related and told his intimates that he was
tbe chief of a great private detective
bureau maintained by the A. P. A. in San
Francisco and New York, his chieftain
ship being of the coast branch. He also
claimed to be a detective gathering evi
dence in the Ashley vs. Baldwin seduction
case at San Francisco, which is now in the
court and in which the Pasadena woman
is the plaintiff. He was not "working at
it," however, his principal occupations
being apparently to run up a big hotel bill
and pay frantic court to the young lady
who would not now accept his'suit.
Detective Goodwin put in an appearance
last Wendnesday evening at the hotel
where the Baron lodged and spent the
night there. This morning the Baron
came to this city and departed just in time
to avoid an explosion of parental wrath,
if not an expose of a past more or less
checkered career. The detectives refuse to
divulge his true name on account of his
highly honorable family in San Francisco.
GROUND BE NEATH A CAR.
Frightful Death of a Mexican Who Was
Hent on Murder.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May B.— As a
northbound Pasadena electric-car was pro
ceeding rapidly along Buena Vista street
this evening two Mexicans, one pursued by
the other and each with a knife in his
hand, attempted to cross tbe street in
front of the car. The first one, Jose
Morales, succeeded, but the other, Salas
Garcia, was struck by the car, dragged 100
feet and literally ground to pieces. Tbe
car was derailed and traffic blocked for an
hour while tbe fragments of Garcia's body
were being got from underneath the trucks.
Morales, who started the fight by striking
Garcia and then retreating, has been ar
rested. Both men are from Cucomonga.
Garcia was forty years old and had a

other year, and that she had prayed long
and earnestly over her acceptance of the
office, and with tears in her t-yes and with
broken voice she asked the convention to

TRAGEDIES IN SAN JOSE,
Freeman Butts, Mistaken for a
Burglar, Receives a Death
A Mexican Sends a Bullet Through
His Breast After Failing to Ki'l
SAN JOSE, Cal., May B.— Freeman
Butts, a young man about 20 years of age,
was shot and perhaps fatally wounded by
Joseph Guinasso, in the Willows, about 12
o'clock last night. Some two weeks ago a
small house on the place was burglarized,
and since then Paul Guinasso, a son, has
been sleeping in the place, and, unknown
to Mr. Guinasso, young Butts has been oc
cupying the place with his son. About
midnight Guinasso was aroused by tbe
barking of his dogs and went into the
yard with a pistol-in his hand. He saw a
light in the house, and on looking through
the window saw a man who was not his
son in the place. He pusned open the
door and fired, and as the man fell he
recognized him as young Butts. Young
Guinasso had not yet got home, and Butts
was preparing to retire. The bullet pene
trated the right lung and lodged under the
shoulder. The chances of Butta' recovery
are slim. Guina*3o surrendered himself
at the jail, but was allowed to go.
SUICIDE OF A MEXICAN,

With Whom He Had Quarreled-
SAN JOSE, Cal., May 8.-Rey Arcia, a
Mexican about 40 years, committed sui
cide at Santa Clara last evening by shoot
ing himself in the right breast. For
several years he has been living with Mrs.
M. S. Rodriguez. Yesterday afternoon
they came to this city, and on their return
home had a row. He fired a shot at Mrs.
Rodriguez and missed her. She ran from
the house, and he followed her into the
yard. He snapped the trigger several
time 3, and placing the revolver against bis
breast, said: "Now I am going to die;
goodby." He pulled the trigger and fell,
expiring almost instantly. It is supposed
Arcia thought the weapon was unloaded,
and wa«. trying to scare Mrs. Rodriguez.
An inquest was held this morning, but
not tiing was developed leading to the cause
of the suicide.
TO FORECLOSE A MORTGAGE
Suit Involving a Portion of the San
BAN JOSE, Cat.., May B.— The German
Savings and Loan Society of San Fran
cisco to-day began suit in the Superior
Court against Anais Hale, administrator
of the estate of Joseph P. Hale, and other
heirs of the latter's estate, to foreclose a
$75,000 mortgage on 1850 acres of land
alons the San Antonio Creek, in this
county. The land is part of the San An
tonio rancho. The mortgage was given
to secure a note executed by the deceased
on May 12, 1891, for $75,000, bearing inter
est at 7>£ per cent per annum. Hale, who
was a han Francisco capitalist, died in
that city on April 13, 1893. The claim was
allowed by the Superior Court in San
Francisco on June 17, 1893, and a decree of
foreclosure and sale is asked.

Revival Services at the Christian
Church Reopened Last Night— A
HANFORD, Cal., May B.— For seven
weefcs Hanford has been in the throes of
quite a remarkable religious revival, and
last night Revivalist S. M. Martin, at an ex
pense of $20 a lecture, began another sea
son of his meetings at the Christian church
in this city.
The Rev. Mr. Martin is advertised as
"One of the most successful evangelists in
America," and if his work in Hanford can
be taken as an indication of his persuasive
powers his t>ress agent has not availed
himself of even the usual license accorded
that profession. Heretofore Hanford has
never been famous for its religious zeal,
though the city has maintained its fair
quota of churches and preachers. But now
Hanford is stirred, and an extraordinary
interest, even among the non-church goers,
is manifested in these revival services at
the Christian church.
In manner and appearance Mr. Martin
is the typical revivalist. His face is clean
shaven and expressiveand his long black
hair adds streneth to it. His speech is
rather deliberate, but always earnest and
forcible and often quite eloquent. He has
made nearly 150 converts in this city
alone and added them all to membership
in the Christian Church. Such effective
work as this has attracted attention to him
from all over the country, and it is quite
likely that during the next few nights of
his labors here the list will be greatly in
creased. A full list of those who have re
cently joined tbe Christian cburch,
throueh the efforts of the Rev. Mr. Martin,
is as follows:
Miss C. E. Davles. I Clarence Frazier.

Among this list are the names of many
who have heretofore been known as pro
aounced non-church goers, but now that
:hese and all the others have been im
mersed and become members of the Chris
tian church the people of Hanford are
wondering wbat will happen next.
Rev. Joseph S. Black, pastor of the
Christian church, is quite gratified at the
work done, and believes that Evangelist
Martin will toon increase the new mem
bership list to over 200. The trustees of
the church are Manford Ludlow, B. X.
Thornton, J. C. Rice and A. B. Cromwell.
The meeting to-night was exceptionally
well attended, and there is everything to
indicate that the interest of Hanford
people in the revival movement will not
soon die ont.
THRILLING AND SURLINE.
A Sea Captain Describes a Volcano on
the Bouth American Coast.
BEATTLE, Wash.. May B.— A volcano
near Hiio, on the South American coast, is
reported to be in active eruption by Cap
tain Birkholm of the American schooner
S. F. Redfleld. Upon her return trip from
Honolulu, whither she had taken a cargo
of lumber, the Redfield was headed toward
the South American coast, and she passed
within a few miles of the group of islands
where volcanic eruptions caused such ex
citement in 1889. Captain Birkholm says
he could plainly hear a subterranean
rumbling. The volcanic mountain is coni
cal in form, ana flames and smoke broke
forth from the very top, which is contrary
to former eruptions of this mountain.
"The sight was most thrilling and sub
lime," the captain said, "and the flames re
sembled a great bonfire lighting up the en
tire sky. While no lives were lost, the dis
turbance was a violent one. The last erup
tion of the mountain came from the side,
and in this instance thiough the openings
so formed great streams of lava flowed
down toward the beacn."

Numerous Depositions Filed in Favor of

depositions and affidavits favorable to the
defendant, Mrs. Mamie C. Dawson, in the
Dawson divorce case, were procured by
her counsel, ex-Mayor J. T. Ronald, who
has just returned from San Francisco and
other California cities. They tend to show
that the conduct of Mrs. Dawson while
"doing" . the various flower festivals in
Southern California in 1894 was most ex
emplary; that she did not while in Los
Angeles drinjc with young men; as alleged,
but that on the contrary her escort was

that city and a strong Prohib'tionist. -
Los Angeles has contributed . another
deposition, wnich was filed in the Superior

How Yue belongs to the San Yups and
last year was arrested on a warrant sworn

So New Developments in the Retrial of
Van Horn and Crow.
WEAVEKVILLE, Cal., May B.— The
second day of the retrial of Bayles Van
Horn and John Crow has been devoid of
ncident and to some extent reminds one
of the rehearsal of a play, simply covering
ground already gone over. The prosecu
tion are running their witnesses through
with great rapidity and have curtailed the
testimony of the witnesses introduced by
them at the former trial. For a time they
deviated from the beaten track, and it
looked as if something sensational was
going to happen when William Espey was
called to the stand and questioned re
garding his conversation with Joseph
Greeory, it evidently being the purpose of
the prosecution to endeavor to show a con
spiracy the result of which was Jack Li t
RETURNS FROM JUNEAU,
A Portland Man Says That
Everything Is Booming
Didn't See a Beggar or Idle Man,
and Miners Are Making
$io a Day.
PORTLAND, Ob., May B.— C. S. Mc-
Duffee has just returned from a business
trip to Juneau, Alaska. He says things
up there are livelier than in the days of
'4t>. "It is all nonsense for people to say
that men are coming away from Alaska
because they can't find employment,"
said Mr. McDuffee. "I didn't see a beg
gar nor an idle man in all the time I was
there. Every boat brings great throngs of
men, who start for Circle City the next
day and spread about through the gold
fields. A laborer can get $10 a day for his
work when he gets up there, and there is
plenty of work for all who go. Juneau is
the liveliest city I ever saw. There are
about 2000 people and thirty-eight saloons.
Tne people— men, women and children —
sleep most of the day and sit up celebrat
ing almost ull night. All nationalities are
represented, and gambling-houses, dance
halls, etc., run in full blast. Every hotel
is packed as full as it will hold, and every
steamer that comes in is loaded to the
To get to the mines from Juneau takes
about six weeks. The inlet must be first
crossed to Dyea, about 100 miles. From
there there is a walk of forty miles across
the mountains to the headwaters of the
Yukon, dragging provisions and outfit on
sledges, either by band or with dogs.
Each party takes about six months or a
year's provisions, a sheetiron stove and a
"When the Yukon is reached the whip
saw is brought into requisition. Trees are
felled and ripped up into rough lumber
and a boat is built. After that the trip is
an easy one, for all the party has to do is
to get into the boat and float down the
Yukon to the gold fields.
"The Northwest Trading Company has
a steamer up there, with which it expects
to take people around the Aleutian penin
sula and thus into the mouth of the
Yukon; but the steamer, the S. S. Weir,
is frozen in the ice near the mouth of the
river, and it is a question whether they
will ever get her out. Tho people are
pouring into Juneau from all directions,
nut there seems to be no danger of over
crowding. The only mistake people make
is to go up without an outiit, and unless
they have one they cannot possibly get
across the mountains to the Yukon."
JACK, THE STRAGGLER.
Waives Preliminary Examination and Is
Commuted to Jail.
PORTLAND, Ob., May B.— John R. Cos
grove, the thug, who attempted to strangle
to death Marie Levillie, a French courte
san, on tbe night of April 28, declined a
preliminary examination in the Municipal
Court and has been committed to the
County Jail pending the action of tne
Grand Jury. The detectives say that Cos
grove has the most forbidding eyes they
ever gazed into. Tbe longer one looks
into them the more proof they furnish of
the p ossePEor's nature.
Detective Welsh remarked that were
Cosgrove half as cood a man physically as
himself he would no take chances of going
anywhere with him in a friendly way
even, as he believes the fellow to have as
much a mania for murder as had the mon
ster Holmes, who yesterday was hanged
"This fellow," said Mr. Welsh, "comes
nearer being the San Francisco strangler
than any man yet arrested down there for
the tenderloin district murders. His
photographs will be finished to-day, and
early next weak we shall hear whether or
not he has been identified by the tian
"Beyond his confession to having at
tempted to strangle the French woman,
merely to observe her dyinz struggles, and
to see how she would appear after death,
Cosgrove will not talk much. Buthe seems
to gloat over his morbid fancy, and he is
not a bit insane either. He did pay,
though, on being hard pushed that during
tho past few months he has been in San
Francisco and on the sound."
This forenoon Chief Minto received a
telephone message from Dr. Wall at Van
couver, Wash., informing him that a little
over a month ago he caused Cosgrove's
confinement in the Steijacoom asylum to
t prevent bim from committing just such a
crime for which he is now under arrest.
He remained in tbe asylum less than four
weeks and must have come here at once
to commit murder. Cosgrove was not
very well known in Vancouver, but Dr.
Wall believes him to be a strangling mono
maniac This fact strenethens the im
-1 pression of the police that he is the man
wanted in San Francisco.

THE BUCKBOARD FOUND.
A Breakdown Compels the Out-
Jaws to Resort to Horse
BLOODHOUNDS FOR THE CHASE.
Trained Animals From Missouri Are
Expscted to Run Down the
MADERA, Cal., May B.— William Lave
rone and Jack Roberts have not been cap
tured yet, and everything seems to indi
cate that they do not intend to be until
they have exhausted all avenues of escape.
The officers succeeded in tracking tbem
north across Fresno River and then east,
where they drove into and up the stream
for some distance, driving out of the river
on the south side and taking tbe old Dust
heimer road which leads to Bates, the
place in which they were first captured.
About thirteen miles from town the offi
cers found the buckboard in which the
outlaws had been making their escape,
•.vbere it had been broken down and they
had been compelled to abandon it.
The buckboard had been left in the mid
dle of the road with the harness and the
prisoners had then resorted to riding
horseback. The officers thought the horse
had been undoubtedly run all the way,
and if the chase was kept up they would
at last wear him out and compel tbem to
take to their feet.
Deputy Sheriff Timmins brought up
some bloodhounds yesterday afternoon
from Fresno to join in the hunt, and, if a
trail is found, the dogs will be scented, and
in this manner it is hoped they wiU be
able to locate the outlaws.
The bloodhounds have been imported
from Missouri, and have been in Fresno
something over a year, where they have
been in training. They have shown them
selves to be able to do some clever trailing,
but this will be their first experience in
trailing outlaws, and they will be given a
chance to show what they can do in a
practical manner. Timmins and his party
started out last night, and they expect the
hunt to begin in earnest to-day, when
Sheriff Westfall will be relieved. When
last heard of Westfall was about four hours
behind on tbe trail, and it is not unlikely
that he has overtaken his men by this
time. __ _____^____^_

score read: Fulford 228, Gilbert 227, Elliott
225 and Heikes 224.
The Kansas City man had the worst
luck in the semi-final event and only
scored 18 out of a possible 25. Gilbert
broke 22, Heikes 21 and Fulford 20. The
score was tnen: Gilbert 249, Fulford 248,
Heikes 245 and Elliott 243.
For the first few pairs in the deciding
event the issue was still in doubt. Elliott
was shooting doubles in great form, but
his low record in the expert rule left him
practically out of the race. Gilbert quickly
drew away from Fulford and Heikes,
killing 17 pairs to their 13, and won the
championship amid great applause.
Captain A. W. Money, one of the pro
moters of the tournament, made a short
speech, and presented Gilbert with the
championship cup. The trophy is a hand
some silver cup valued at $300, and will be
held subject to challenge at due notice.
The winner is a well-known live-bird shot
in the West. He won the Dupont cup at
the big shoot at Baltimore last October.
In addition to the title and trophy Gilbert
won about $500 at the tournament, and
had the best general average— 643— on the
four days' shoot. Fulford's average of 636
was second best, and Elliott came next
with 624. Heikes was close on with a gen
eral average of 620.

MONTEREY TO CELEBRATE
Semi-Centennial Jubilee of the
American Occupation of
Military and Naval Demonstration
Such as the Coast Never Saw
Before Is Promised.
MONTEREY, Cal., May B.— The execu
tive committee of the Society for the Semi
centennial Celebration of the American
Occupation of California has issued the
following circular: .
We are preparing to celebrate In Monterey
what is virtually the founding of one of the
great empires of modern times — the Pacific
States of the American Union. England bad
her jubilee when Victoria celebrated the
fiftieth year of her accession to the throne;
Italy hers in the fiftieth year of the pontificate
of Pio Nono.
California, this year of her jubilee, com
memorates a fact of much greater importance
and significance. We are la communication
with our National authorities in regard to the
grandest military and naval pageant thi3
coast has yet witnessed, on sea and shore of
Monterey Bay on the 6ll» and 7th of July next.
We also expect such a civic demonstration as
shall be somewhat commensurate with the
greatness of the event celebrated— the Ameri
can occupation of California.
The anniversary of the first raising of the old
flag of the Union over thU State should assur
edly inspire the most ardent feelings in the
hearts of all Cahfornians. We ask all to unite
with us, responsive to the old motto, ' United
we stand,'' and make this a grand occasion
worthy to be remembered eternally in our an
nals. We want such cordial help and assist
ance as shall make the occasion monumental
as our stamp and seal that we approve and
appreciate the work of our own hands in build
ingr up this glorioua Western addition to the
We think that California can afford to spend
a day or two in admiring herself, in jubilee
and jubilation and jollity. To this end we
want to make our celebration as free as possi
ble to all comers. We are not aiming at any
catch-penny carnival or flower nests.
Monterey is the place where the events
transDired; Monterey is therefore the place
chosen for their commemoration. The occa
sion is really National. What Nation might
not justly pride itself on such a magnificent
Western addition? What Nation would not
jubilate over such an event ?
But Monterey is poor. Millionaires are not
so thick as mushrooms here. We ask. then,
Borue of those who have ncquireel wealth in
this State to give freely of their abundance
that their less Tuvored neighbors may have a
jolly time and a lifelong memory of a delight
ful California jubilee.
ContriDutions will be gladly acknowledged,
carefully disbursed and faithfullr accounted
for, and may be sent to tne Bank oi Monterey.
In her corporate capacity Monterey has
nobly seconded the labors of the local com
mittee, the Veterans of the Mexican War, tbe
Sloat Monument Association, the pioneers and
other bodies engaged in this patriotic move
ment by unanimously voting the sum of $500
from the municipal treasuey toward defraying
the expenses requisite to make everything
free to our visitors during jubilee week.
May we not ask the great dailies of the me
tropolis to co-operate witn us by giving space
in their columns for the publication of this
letter that all the world may Know wbat we
are dolne and propose to do T For the axeou

Kid on the Warpath.

and his band of murderous Apaches are
again on the warpath, three of the best
known citizens of this county having been
killed by them a few days ago, close to the

prominence in tha Territory, who has re

years, and Gus Wisner, foreman for Reid.
Another victim was one of the Hand

Men Are To-Day,
In the olden times, so twe
are told, men spent most of
their time fighting for coun-
try or for love of the primi-
tive maid, whose beauty was
of that womanly • sort which
inspired in the heart of her
manly lover such a passion
that he thought it a pleasure
to die for her.
In those days men were
not faint-hearted nor weak-
They did not know of the
ruinous habits which are re-
sponsible for our weak, de-
bilitated men of to-day—
habits which drain from the
body ' all the energy, ambi-
tion and courage of manhood;
youthful folly — all tend to
wear - out manhood* .Being
contrary to the laws of na-
ture, they sap the very foun-
dation, the r heart of manly ,
vigor, . and leave only the
shell, the nerveless, empty
frame — empty of the life' and
energy of manhood. v
'I would give all I possess
in this world to be able to
live my life for the ' past ten
years over again," wrote a
correspondent to Dr. Sanden
recently. He expresses the
feelings of many sufferers
who come to Dr. Sanden for
