COUNTY OFFICIAL Tim 0 UHCAlTcPHERS07l7EblT0R fHIS MORNING 8 EDITION U80 PRES3 ASSOCIATION VISITED THE CANYON. The members of the California Press Association who have been attending the annual convention which was held this 'year at the Grand Canyon of Arizona, returned Saturday evening to Ban Francisco by the Santa Fe, all delighted with the success of their outing. There were sixty-six in the party, Including ladies and Uiree special Pullmans were retained by them throughout the trip. The excursionists left 'Frisco the previous Monday night, arriving at the canyon on Wednesday morning, and the wonders which the famous region has to offer were thoroughly explored during the days that they sent there. Nothing occurred between San Francisco and the Grand Canyon of special moment The cars were first-class In all their appointments. The ride was uphill till Tehachapl was reached, a point about 5,000 feet above the level of the sea. Then It was down hill till the Colorado river was reached, about 600 feet above the level of the sea, at Its crossing there. Then it was uphill till the very brink of the Grand Canyon was reached, about 7,000 feet above the level of the sea Arizona here is a dry and wind-swept territory, the water used at the Grand Canyon having to be hauled on the cars ninety miles. The pasturage is poor, and the timber a small spruce pine and a dwarf cedar. Rocks stick out of the ground verywhere. There is little game, but the Grand Canyon, as an opening some t.OOO feet deep and thirteen miles wide, Is the biggest slit on earth. Bt is sawed through the solid rock, the work, some believe, of water and wind, frost and burning sun. Desolation Is written in all Its walla The Canyon could be seen to Its greatest depths from its upper walls, and here and there the river, from 200 to 300 feet wide, from 25 to 60 feet deep, dirty and rapid, could be seen winding like a serpent, and heard for a thousand feet roaring as It ran. There are few fish within its dirty beom, the variety being called Bilver Balmon, and caught by baited hooks lying on the bottom of the stream, the fish waylng from five to twenty pounds each. It is hard to imagine a more unproductive stream, running for more than a thousand miles through banks of rocks and deserts of sand. Of course. Borne of the California editors had to go down to this river In the canyon. They could not get within two miles of It on horseback. But few of them succeeded in realizing It About half of the number gnve out at a small spring half way down the mountain. Half of the balance had all the "fun" they wanted when they were at the end of the horse trail and 1,200 feet above the water. The balance really bathed their feet in the lauddy stream. Then came the return, the awful tug of war. The air was tight, the erun hot and the dust stifling. Those on horseback ihad all the riding they wanted, but were compelled to walk over Jacob's Ladder, so steep and dangerous was it At the end of four hours after commenting the ascent of six miles all on foot rcacned the cars, ome so exhausted that they had to be put to bed. ,.:IIHIT1 TEARFUL ORCBEERflL? Whether a woman is tearful or cheerful dependi not on what she has materially, but what she ii physically. Many as indulgent husband is driven almost to despair by the tearful outburst of wife who kaa "everything she wants. " He wants to know what's the matter. But the wife can't tell. 8he only knows that she is de- S rested and espondent. Such a condition is usually re- 1 some form V of woman lv disease. The mental depression has Its corresponding uomanly weakness. Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription changes tearful women tocheerful women by curing the diseases which cause physical weakness and depression of spirits. It establishes regularity, dries unhealthy drains, heals inflammation and ulceration, and cures female weakness. Mrs. Alice Adams, of Lahoratory, Washington C , Pa., says. "With raaiiv thanks 1 write to let rou know how I am I csd say by God's hflji and your rclp I nln mrVL I hare taken ail ttnlof Dr Pteroe's Favorite Prescription and two of bia Golden Medical Uwcverv,' and I ean do all my work 1 can't piaise your rardi-on toe highly I will rstjrammil your median as long aa I live. If anyone doubtallus gur them ray address " "Favorite Prescription" makes weak women strong and sick women well. Accept no substitute for the medicine which works wonders for weak women. Keep the bowels healthy by the timely ust of Doctor Pierce s Pleasant 1-eUjta. i No Respecter of Rank. Disease Lays Its Heavy Hind on Kings, Princes, Presidents, tneKoble and Wealthy, as Well as Those of Low Estate. Paine'sGeleryCompound Is the Great Restorer of Health (or the Ruler and His Humblest Subject. SiHknem, disease, and suffering respect neither ruler nor subject. The noted and htirh orn have their trials and physical sufferings like those in humbler stations. Social etandlnjr and wealth can nut bar the progress of disease wiien the common rules of health are violated. Impure blood and. weak nervea are responsible for many of the common diseases of life. The experienced physi cian will tell you that men and women with pure, clear coursing blood and well braced nerves, can never become victims of rheumatism, neuralgia, liver troubles, debility, headache, or sleeplessness. It follow, therefore, that sufferers from any of the ailments referred to, should at once take proper measures to cleanse the blood and feed the weak nervous system with proper nourishment. For the happy accomplishment 01 this Important work, Paine' s Celery Compound is the only safe agent, the one great specific, the only security aealnst deadly disease and death During these spring days. Paine' Cel ery Compound guarantees a perfect regularity of the bowels, healthy appetite, sound sleep good digestion pure bliod, strong nerves, and clear brain, all of which mean full and ro bust health. Mr. R M Sutton. ex-Mayor of Bur lington, Vt.t one of the strongest and heartiest of Paine's Celery Compound in the United States, tells us in the following letter how he keeps well un der all circumstances; he says: "People have often asked me how I managed to keep so well, for although out in nearly all kinds of weather and traveling considerably, I have no aches or sickness. My one answer has been that instead of waiting until I am sick in bed and forced to stop work for awhile, whenever 1 feel out-or-sorts the least bit, I take Paine's Celery Compound, which keeps me well .and strong. It is a rreat deal better in my opinion to take a medicine that keeps one well, rather than to wait for the sickness, and then hunt around for medicine or a doctor to cure the sick ness. 1 have been a hearty advocate of Paine's Celery Compound since it was first mail, a great many years ago, and have yet to hear of a case in which it fails to fulfil Us promises.1 DIAMOND DYES Can't be equalled, Never crock. Beware of impure imuauuas. BRET HARTE. Every Callfornlan of note has read B?et Harte, and all Americans who peruse books at all have pored over some one of his stories or poems fence, the notice of his death was read by millions with a sense of personal less and with the feelings of Individual sorrow. It has been said that the great American novel can not be written till we have a more romantic and picturesque background. Our surroundings are too new and freeh. We can not turn Chicago Into Paris, or Broadway into the historic streets of old London. With great wisdom, then, Hawthorne took for his background the mystic far-off time of New England witchcraft; Cooper choose the wild and picturesque life of the In dian; Mrs. Harriet Beeeher Stowe the semi-feudal and romantic setting of Southern life during slavery, and last came Bret Hartt with the almost elemental civilization of the California mining camp, with its bravery and vices. Its heroisms and villainies, Its women sometimes almost heroines, of ten with the loose morals of a frontier civilization. He took the real as he saw It, and fashioned an Ideal out of It which has a lasting charm notwithstanding the change of civilization, and that "Ytiha Bill," "Keatuok," "The Outcasts of Poker Flat, "M'liss," "Tennessee," "John Oakhurst," "Jack Hamlin" and a host of others are but recollections In California life. So the Golden State and Bret Harte are one. His romances are Its deepest history from '49 up to the sixties. Those who have never been in the State have yet lived amid the aroma of the pine woods, have felt the perfume of the wild flowers, the dreariness of the cactus plains, seen the rocking of the golden cradle In the sluices, caught a glimpse of gambling hell and dance house, the terrors of the stage coach ar.d the rough justice of the vigilance committee. All this is portrayed with a wit, humor, pathos and descriptive power which has left the works of Bret iHarte ,,,,lqlle and oriBina' and a Per- manent (portion of our literature for the historian of the future, If not for the general reader. Admit that he Is not uniform in excellence, that his latter work lacks spontaneity, and that his earlier writinss still claim our most Interest and best Judgment, Btill wt must credit Bret Harte with establishing a new Western literature, the high position the short story now holds and a virile elemental tale which makes the everyday historical novel pale In insignificance. So literary America is proud of Bret Harte's work and mourns his taking off all too soon. Free traders insist that the only way t( save Cuba from Ttiln is to enibrace their doctrine. They make the same claim in regard to the beef trust. No natter w hat public question comes up, the- free trader offers his fad as the only remedy. On one occasion the Tnited States tried the cure-all and the land was speedily filled with idle men and souphouses. That experiment Is quite enough of the kind. The President and Congress acted with praiseworthy promptness and intelligence in the matter of the approbation for the sufferers by the West Indian volcano. This calamity, which lh one of the most extensive in the world's history, appeals to all peoples, and with special force to the Americans, who are near neighbors to the afflicted locality. The Santa Fe railroad has sprinkled three hundred and sixty miles of its tit'Mit roadway with crude petroleum, und there is an entire absence of the annoying duBt usually encountered In pufsliig through that section. BEAN TRUST AND REVOLUTION. Probably nothing ha caused more consternation in Boston and Its Imme diate neighborhood than the announcement made a few days since that the price of baked beans has been put up and might continue to rise. This was not caused by any scarcity of beans, for they, like codfish and pie, are always plentiful In New England. The bean crop has not failed since the Pilgrim fathers first planted the berry. When everything else falls beans are faithful, and that Is one reason why they were selected as the Sunday dish, baked over night In Saturday's oven, after the pies had had their turn. The price has not been put up because the meat trust has cornered them. It would be as difficult to corner beans lp New England as to corner the boulders, big and little, on its farms and hillsides. Greed alone Is responsible for the rise. It Is claimed that the price of chops and steaks has gone so high that there Is nothing selling but beans. Hence, the dealers, restaurateurs, and hotel keepers have improved their opportunity to rush up prices on an article of food which is much more of a necessity in. New Eng land than beef, pork, or mutton. While this action, perhaps, might naturally have been expected in New England, where thrift and "nearness" are native qualities, and might hap pen In any other part of the country if beans were essential there, yet the possibilities in the case are somewhat alarming. In their blind haste to get rich out of the advance on beanB deal-en, may provoke in uprising of the people, who may hold mass meetings and pass resolutions. Old South Church and Faneull Hail may again ring with protests agRlnst oppression. If worse ccmes to worst, they may chuck the beans overboard as their forefathers chucked the tea. For a rise in the price of beans not merely affects beans as food, but beans In their subtle, but potent, relation to social, political, patriotic and Intellectual advancement. Of the three great staples of consumption beans, codfish and pie beans stand highest as developers of personal Euccesa in life. Ralph Waldo Emerson has written philosophically upon the virtues of the pie and acknowledged that much of his oitlmlstlc philosophy came from It. Senator Hoar, on a recent occasion, publicly acknowledged his gratitude to codfish. But Dr. Holmes and innumerable other New Englanders have written and sung the praipes of beans. The greedy dealers may go too far. The spirit of resistance to tyranny is not yet dead In Massachusetts. "It Is now Mark Twain's plain duty," says the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, "to make a heroic attempt to be funny at .the expense of Gen. MacArthur". Twain's knowledge of the army Is confined to getting out of it because the first march made him tired and a shower wet his clothes. A decayed humorist muddling himself with serious questions is a solemn spectacle. A man attending the revival was pressed hard to repent, and at last got up: "Dear friends," said Bill, "I feel the spirit moving me to talk and tell what a bad man I have been, but I can't do It when the grand jury is to be in session next week." "The Iord will forgive you," shouted the preacher. "I guess that's all right," said Bill, "but he ain't on the grand jury". Monday the flag the United States was hauled down In Cuba, but it came down, In honor and not In defeat or disgrace. A nation which respects its promise and restores their country to a weak people like the Cubans is more to be congratulated than one which forces Its rule upon millions of unwilling subjects. From almost all over the State comes the report that the prune crop of 1902 will be much smaller than was at first predicted. Should the "June drop" be as large as usual It Is not thought pos sible that the crop will be more than 60 per cent of last year's output. The Episcopalians at Redlands are rejoicing over the fact that they have been provided with funds to build a new church, having received a gift of f20,000 from a lady who has been cpendlng the winter in that beautiful city of culture, oranges and heat. Fifteen hundred retail butchers in New York have combined to close theipishops ten days in order to bring the beef trust to terms. The people rejoice over every war measure against a monopoly that has proved itself to be utterly devoid of conscience. It is a singular thing that the only survivor of the disaster that overtook St. Pierre was a prisoner confined in a dungeon. He remained there four days without food or drink, and the fact that he was so entirely Bhut in saved his life. John L. Sullivan was whipped by a telephone, lineman in a saloon fight a'. Bridgeport, Conn., the other night. WHY STAY PALE. A pity to see pale girls stay pale and dull when it is so easy to get Scott's Emulsion. One of the best things Scott's Emulsion does is to give rich blood to pale girls. The result of regular doses of Scott's Emulsion is an in crease not only in the red color of the blood and in the appetite but in the good looks and bright manners which are the real charm of perfect health. Send for Free Sample. SCOTT B DOWN E, Chemists, 400 Pearl St., N. V. Cuba was turned over to the natives without a single case of yellow fever. One thing can be safely assumed of the campaign of 1D02. The crop of sil- vei Republicans will be light. It Is painful to free-trade organs to find that the volcanic eruptions can not be charged to a protective tariff. Spoiled meat may easily cause fatal disease, and those who sell it should bo dealt with according to the gravity the offense. Building an Isthmian canal and laying a Pacific cable are projects that should be acted on by Congress at the present session. The merciful conduct of our army in the Philippines, under all sorts of sav age and copperhead atrocities, is one of its marked characteristics. Uncle Sam recognizes the fact that there Is a generous as well as a vigi lant side of the Monroe doctrine. Our relief ships were the first to reach Martinique. Delaware Is still without representa tion In the Senate because Addlcks chooses to prolong his everlasting deadlock. And that is the kind of a State Delaware la If the forty members of a company of the 9th infantry who were massacred by pretended amigos In Samar had been less generous and merciful they would be alive today. Dirigible airships are keeping up the record of ballooning as extra hazardous. The list of aeronauts who stuck to the business and lived to be old contains but a few names. After the meeting of the Republican State Central Committee on May 24th, the political pot will begin to simmer. Then we will know the time and place of holding the convention, number of delegates, etc. South Carolina can shortly indulge in the luxury of two Tillmans In the Senate If such is its pleasure. The Tillman habit, however, Is not calculated to advance the moral or matt rial interests of a State. The one hundred and twenty-sixth, anniversary of American Independence Is some six weeks distant and yet, up to the present time, there has been no move whatever towaid arranging for the proper celebration of the event in this city. A new system of usina- water nnwer In swift streams without the aid rr dams has been Inaugurated In Arizona The principle Is verv siniDle. The whole power installation is on a boat, or barge, securely moored to the river lank. Through the center of the boat Is a sluiceway, or rare, through which the current of the river is able to flow freely. Large grooved. rim wheels are supported over this sluice. Over these wheels are flexible steel cables with rubber cores. Attached to the cables. at intervals of two feet, are a series of paddles, or vanes. The wheels are adjusted at the necessary height above the surface of the water to just sub merge the cable and the paddles. As soon as the swiftly flowing current catches a cable it carries it down (itream, the amount of power developed being dependent on the strength of ttie current and the size and number of paddles, or blades. According to the Western Electrician, a plant of this type of 00 horsepower capacity is to he Installed on the Colorado river. Oakland Enquirer. The California editors who visited the Colorado river last week did not see this water wheel, did not hear of il, but the river is in Arizona and the narrow rocky shores produce the cur rent. DICTATES OF FASHION. Gold-embroidered stockingS are too fetching for words. m m m Linen summer frocks will lie beauti fied by flax embroideries this year. The stout woman should avoid muslins, at least those of a startling na ture. LIKE A DROWNING MAN. 'Five years ago a disease the doc tors called dyspepsia took such hold of me that I could scarcely go," writes Geo. & Marsh, well-known attorney of Nocona. Tex. I took quantities of pepsin and other medicines but nothing helped me. As a drowning man grabs at a straw I grabbed at Kodol. I felt an Improvement at once anrt after a few bottles am sound and well." Kodol is the only preparation which exactly reproduces the natural diges tive juices and. consequently Is tne only one which digests any good food ami ures any form of stomach trouble. J. G.

This the Los Angeles Herald infers from mi innovation reported by one of the leading churches of that city. The idea was expressed by the minister thus: "I believe God's business should be advertised just like any other. The newspapers have been very kind to us, all of them; but I know that we have imposed upon their good nature at times. We will carry advertisements in all the local papers hereafter.'' And in accordance with this announcement, we learn that "the church has adopt ed resolutions providing for funds to pay for advertising the regular and special services, with display ads. when necessary, to be paid for at the regular rates". It is an advertising adage, universal ly accepted, that it "pays to advertise a good thing." There is no reason why the principle therein embodied should not apply to church attractions as well ns to commercial bargain attractions. A condition precedent to settling goods id the attraction of people to the store. This is accomplished by progressite merchants by the use of newspaper I space. A condition precedent to the salvation of sinners is an Inducemcit to attend church and there can be no imore effective means of reaching them than through the newspaer they ,read. I lint it Is manifestly Important to benr the aliove noted adage In mind. , It pays to advertise a good tiling. Min- Isterrt have scriptural caution not to ililde their light "under a bushel". Hnt ji' the light Is the feeble dicker of a tallow dip it were better to hide it I under the bushel and then throw a blanket over It to guard against cracks ,ln the measure. Pasadena Star. THE llOieOTT IS FUTILE. "If you wish to succeed, get yourself boycotted," would be a good maxim for the business men of I-os Angeles to adopt and to follow. The ixperlenee of those business men who have been made the objects of the malevolent attacks of professional boycetters and blackmailers, In Los Angeles, fully bears out the assertion that to be boycotted is an advantage and a distinct benelit instead of being, as the boycotters and blackmailers imagine, an injury. For months past boycott has been 11 uintained against certain firms and individuals. eniiged in various business enterprises In this city. The ob ject of the boycotter nas been ana to injure tne business of tnese nrms and individuals. It Is to the credit of the people of this community that the boycott, so far from injunug those against whom it has been di eted, has proved to be an actual and undoubted benelit, from a business point of view. ' 1 ne boycotted firms have done a better business since tne boycott was levied against them than ihey did before. The explanation of this fact is un doubtedly to be found in the American sense of justice, and insistence upon fair play. The boycott is utterly un-American, contemptible, lawless i-nd underhanded. Even those wbo piactiee it, If they have any adequate perception of right and wrong, know it to be so. Los Angeles Is, in tne truest and best sense, an Ameri-an nimunity. There are thousands upon thousands of people here who are diametrically and Intensely opDosed to the employment of so un-American a method, as the boycott. These people will go out of their way to trade with 1 boycotted firm, as a matter of prin ciple. In this way they are able to put practicable and tangible form their protest against boycotters and the boycott They are not noisy nor Ixastful In the manner or the matter of their protest. They act upon principle, in a quiet, but most effective way. The trade of these thousands is of much more value than that of the hundreds (in comparison) which the boycotters and blackmailers are able to divert by their tricky and disreputable schemes. Hence it is that those who are fortunate enough to be made the objects of the boycott are thereby greatly prospered in their business. Los Angeles Times. Every city and county in the State has its boycotters and bulldosers, men tho gag and threaten weaker men In business. And sometimes, not often, bulldosers of girls In service and women in business can be found. A BAD BREATH Is tne most disgusting thing one c;r. be afflicted with.

Chillon Castle, the ancient and plc-turesqe chateau which stands in the shadow of the Alps on the shore of Lake Geneva, and around which Byron wrote one of his finest poems, is about to be turned into a historical museum. The fine old monument, which Is a little over a mile and. a half from fashionable Montreux, and which Is visited , "very season by hundreds of tourists, has been carefully looked after for a ynod many years by the Swiss govern- 1 ment, and. considering its great age, is in surprisingly good condition. It is known to have existed as a prison in the eitrhth century, and Amadeus Fourth, Duke of Savoy, who rebuilt it in l-:iJi, made the same use of it. Byron found the inspiration for his "Prisoner of Chillon" in the story of Honi-vard, a prisoner of state, who, during the fourteenth century, endured six years' confinement in the chateau. The castle has been restored only where it has been absolutely necessary. The wall and ceiling paintings of the famous Hall of Justice and Torture Chamber have been repaired, but those in the chamber of the Duke of Savoy are in almost perfect "condition and have needed only a careful cleaning. In the course of the recent investigations and researches in the castle, discoveries have been made of the bases of columns that once must have supported immense arches of thirteenth century pattern. The castle contained a complete set of the rare medieval wrought-iron furniture, including a turnspit, and to this has been adried some specially well-carved furniture of the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries. The most popular portion of the castle with tourists is the historic dungeon, on the walls of which thousands of names h a ve been written. Among them are those of Lord Byron, Georges Sand and Victor Hugo. SOME FOOLISH PEOPLE. Allow a cough to run until .t gets be yond the reach of medicine.

DICKINSON, Lessee, Ben Lomond, California. REA OF SAN JOSE ACCCSKD OF DECEIT. Charpred With Inducing the Holders of Electric to Sacrifice Shares. Three suits ngainet James W. Rea of San Jose and his partner, William Leet, were botsun In the tfupvrlur Court here yesterday by three residents of San Jose. Charges of fraud are made In the complaints. The plaintiffs are Mrs. Annie F. Dougherty, Mrs. Elizabeth Reene and W. P. Dougherty. Mrs. IXmgherty is the widow of William P. Dougherty, a San Jose capitalist, who ' died on March is, tx, ana Mrs. neene and W . P. Dougherty are his children. It is alleged In each complaint that in his lifetime Dougherty was friendly with Rea. The alleged deceit was prac ticed In ordr to obtain from the plaintiffs their shares of stock of the Klectiic Improvement Company of Ban Jtme. Mrs. lougtierty held lot) shares, Mrs. Reene 152 3-6, and W. P. Dough erty 65 2-6. In February, ltnil. Ilea and Leet, who do business under the lirm mime of Jas. W. Uea & Co., were authorized by the plaintiffs to sell their mock at the rate of per share, and Rea & Co. were given a commission of 50 cents per share for negotiating the wile. The plaintiffs now charge that Kea and Leet made false representations to them In order to persuade them to sell at that figure, and they say that the stock was worth ISO 50 per share. They sue fur $-ti ier share, .Mrs. Dougherty asking for JS.IS34, Mrs. Heene for J3,Mi; 60, and W. I', Dougherty for $1,700 10. The plaintiffs allege that the defendants told thein that the slock was worth less than 5 per share, that the company would, become involved in a light with the other lighting companies of San Je, that an assessment of $125,000 was about to be levied by its board of directors, and that the plaintiffs would lose money if they retained their ehures. Rea spoke to them of his friendship for the elder Dougherty, it is said, and advised them as a friend to get rid of their stock. He told them that they would be lucky to get $5 a share. The defendants reported to the plaintiffs that they had sold the stock of A. J. Bowie for $a per share, and they paid the plaintiffs thut amount, less 50 cents for commission. The charge that the stock as worth 'M 50 per share at that time is based on the alleged sale by Rea of 500 shares, which he owned, for $30 50. In May, l!fii2. The plaintiffs' attorneys are Sullivan & Sullivan and John J. o Toole, wnen asked why the suits were begun in this city Instead of San Jose, where all of the parties reside, a representative of Sullivan & Sullivan said; "There is a hot political fight going nn In San Jose, and an election Is to take place there Monday. We thought that if the suit were filed in San Jose Rea might say that It was begun on the eve of election as a campaign dodge to injure him. So we have begun it away from the scene of hostilities. It can Ik tried here Just as well as In San Jose, as the Superior Court here has juris diction," S4S4!.4!.4SS4S,a4S4!n4$s4?4! Enameled Ware! We have the BEST at a Reasonable Price.
