I>e Young oi the Chronicle—The Old Wigwam Torn Down —Social Kventl- Notes. Pasadena, Nov. 16.—As stated in this i rning's Herald, the completed new :..y charter was turned over to the president of tbe council today. It is a formidable document, covering 67 closely typewritten pages, and must bave entai.ed much work on the prrt of the board of freeholders in its construction. All the changes, mentioned exclusively in yesterday's Herald, are incorporated in tha new charter, which is of special interest to our citizens from the faot that they will be called upon shortly to pais their opinion on it at the polls. The opening seotionS are devoted to defining the city boundaries, whioh remain as at present. Tbe first important change comes under the head ef city council, which provides that tbe council of the city shall consist of five members, one from each ward, and a mayor shall be elected by the whole oity. The mayor's term of office is made two years, that of ths council four years each ; and every two years, in addition (on the first Tuesday in April), there shall be elected a treasurer, an aasessor, wbo shall be ex-officio tax collector, a clerk, who shall be exofficio auditor, a marshal, who shall be ex-offioio licenae tax collector, an engineer and city superintendent of streets.

Perhaps the most interesting section ia the following relative to the Bale of liquors: Section I.—Within the corporate limits of the city of Pasadena no person or persona, either as owner, prinoipal, agent, servant or employee, thai! establish, open, keep, maintain, or carry on any tippling bouse, dramshop, cellar, saloon, bar room, sample room or other place where spiritoua, vinous, malt or mixed liquorß are sold or given away; provided, that tbis section does not apply to hotels or restaurants, who may furnish to guests or customers vinous or malt liquors with legitimate meals; also, providing, tbat tbis section does not apply to a regularly licensed druggist who may sell either spirituous, vinous or malt liquors in quantities not to exceed one quart at any one sale, upon the prescription of a physician entitled to practice medicine under the laws of tbe state of California. The above synopsis contains all the important changes which are made by tbe new charter, and should be carefully read oyer. A PLEASANT AFFAIR, Tbe muaio room of Hotel Green was well filled laat evening at the entertainment given by tbe Ladies' league ol tho Univerealiet church. The programme consisted of musical and literary numbers, closing with a laughable farce, The Happy Family, which was well rendered. Miss Pearl nave two pleasing recitations, and Mr. Sloan ol l.os Angeles rendered a couple of piano solob in an enjoyable manner, Mrs. Collette of Los Angeles gave two vocal solos that were highly appreciated. The farce went off very smoothly,with the following cast: Mr. Benjamin Bibbs Frof. O. W. Kyle Mr. Uarnaby Bibbs L, G, Brown Mr. i'etsr Parker Charles Green Grumpy Hal Green Mrs. Renjamln Bibbs . Miss i.iennie Pearl Mrs. Barnaby Bibbs Mrs. B. O. Kendall Miss Seliua (jammers Miss Westover Bnarley Mrs. Clara B. Green PROF. LOWE KNTKItTAINM. M. H. de Young, propriator of the San Francisco Chron'cle, and wife were the guests of Prof, and Mrs. T. S. C. Lowe today. The professor took the visitors up over the mountain road to Echo mountain, returning iv time for luncheon at his elegant home on South Orange Grove avenue. Both Mr. and Mra. de Young were delighted with Pasadena and the suDerb view of the valley obtained from the top of the great incline. THE WIOWAM FALLS, The Republican wigwam in a thing of tbe peat, the two ends which formed tbe barracks having been pulled down yeaterday. With all due respect to the gentlemen whose brilliant braine evolved this wigwam noheme, we •incorely hope that i'asadena will never •gain be indicted with such a production. Memory of the playful way the north winda had of meandering down one's back in that historic wigwam still haunts the dreams of many a wary politician on both sides of the fence. I'be babit tbat the big electric lights had of going out just at a critical moment when the fate ot tho nation or a candidete bung trembling in tbe balance was another of the attractions which the wigwam may lay claim to. But it is gone. Let it rest in peace —but give ug no more of tbem. TUB HOY PHENOMENON. The opera house was li I led to overflowing tbil eveuing at the first appearance oi the boy phenomenon in this oity. No admission fee was charged, and the people generally took advantage of the opportunity to witness the peculiar power which be exhibits. A number of wondorfnl cures, in people well known, were effected during the evening, ail applying being treated free, and much interest was taken in the exhibition by all present. NOTES. Prof. Kramer's dancing classes met In his new quarters iv the Wooster block this afternoon and evening. Mr. A. Clare of the New York Wall Paper compnnv is back from a business trip to t?an Francisco. Mrs. Whitmore. late president of the Colorado-Street Railway oompany, gave an annual dinner to the employees of the line at her liome on Euclid avenue last evening. A special meeting of the board of trade is called for tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock. P. Buchanan, one of the linemen employed by the electric light company, fell from a tree while stringing a wire on South Raymond avenue yesterday afternoon and broke his leg. A pleasant reception was given by the young people oi the Friends church, tbis evening, to the members of the Christian Endeavor conference, at the home of Dr. J, R. Townaend, on North Lob Rob.es avenue. Among tbe many attractions at the forthcoming fair under the auspices of ! the 1 .ailies' guild, for the benefit of All | Saints' church, in Woostar block, next j Thursday and Friday, will be n table i devoted entirely to the sale of bags, and ; hero will be found, at remarkably ! low prices, every description of bag. | from the big tirummors' sample grip | down to a neat little button or shopping I bag. The .Lolian club gave a concert in the | Congregational church tbis evening, i The audience was not as large as the i quality of the entertainment deserved. 1 The distance to the church from the I center of the oity, and oouuter attrac- I tions also, tended to lessen the size of the audience, but those present enjoyed a rare treat in the musical line. POMONA. The Meeting or the Poniuloglcal Society. Local Happ-niugo. Pomona, Nov. 16.—Another meeting of the Pomological aociety was held at the board of trade rooms, Fomona, November 15th and 16th. The call to order was made by the president, Mr. L. M. Holt of Los Angeles. Prof. Calvin Esterly of Pomona made the address of welcome. The response wbb made by President Holt in his njraal charming way, and brought forth great applause. There was a large attendance, and at noon over 240 bad gathered in the hall. The report of Prof. A. G. Cook of Pomoma college, who iB the entomologist of the eociety, brought forth a great deal of discussion. The question before the meeting was: Is the rhizobius a success as an insect destroyer." (referring to black scale.) The professor acknowled with good grace that the enemies of the rhizobiue bad made damaging inroads, and that the future of the rhizobius is uncertain. Commissioner Collins and others stated in their reports that of tbe 200,000 rhizobius brought to San Bernardino county, none were left, which is a very much lamented fact. Scale Ipeects, by Miss Loomis of Claremont brought forth great applause, and it was a most excellent paper, showing Miss Loomiß a line student of entomology. Tbe paper of Edward F. Adams of the California Fruit exchange of San Francisco, was read next. It made au excellent showing of what fruit exchanges could do by unitiug the fruit growers. Tbe evening Beasiou was well attended, the irrigation question being well discussed by Mr, Fred. L. Fills, wbo haa besn the secretary of the national executine conimitUe to the irrigation congress. The Two Systems of Government Irrigation, by C. M. Heintz of Los Angeles, delegate to the late national irrigation congress at Denver, brought forth quite a heated discussion. It was an able paper. L. M. Holt's paper on Irrigation Systems, Their Defecta and Remedies, waa excellent, and some new and important points were brought out. The first paper read at tbe morning session of tbe 16th was on Orange Exchanges, by T. H. B. Chamberlain of Riverside. The gentleman brought out some strung arguments why frait men should unite and market their own fruit. Olive Pruning, by A. P, Hayne ol Berkeley, was anew subject and listened to very attentively. I'ollenization of the olive llower, showing that it ie necessary to plaut different varieties in one olive grove, was not alone scientific, but very practicable. There is no better posted man on olive culture than John S. Calkins of Pomona. and American Forestry p.b It Can Be Practiced in California, by Prof. Charles H. Shinn of Berkeley, was very interesting. The professor knows how to win the hearts of the horticulturists by his practical demonstrations, ThiDning the Fruit, by J. W, Milie, foreman of the Tailed States experimental station of Pomona, was very practical, and he was applauded by the audience.

The mass will be Le .teal's famous mass iv ti. At 7:30 p. m. there will be a erand vesper service, during which a lecture on the important subject, The Church and Society, will be given by the same learned and patriotic American divine. The ladies of the Kpiscopal church may well congratulate taernselvea upon ttie marked success of their annual bazaar, concluded by the dinnar on Thnrs day, for never before have they better met tbe expectations of the publio thau on this occasion in their pretty new parish hall. The young ladies of the Firat Presbyterian church gave a most interesting entertainment in the church parlors laet night—a Mozart social—in which all the recitals and mußic rendered were biographical sketches and compositions oi this great character. A dense fog last night brought disappointment to many who bad anticipated a good time sitting up and watching for the prophesied shower of stars.

HEMET. j % Gllropae at lti Imprortmtnti and New* or Ita ButnrprllKd. Hemet, Not. 18.—The natural fertility ; and admirable location of the great Sin ! Jacinto and Pleaaant valley country is • destined to make it one of the leading 1 agricultural and horticultural district! ;of Southern California. The soil is admirably adapted to the raising of all grains, vegetables and fruits grown in the atate, with the possible exception of citrus fruits on the low lands, but even lemonß and oranges can be grown to perfection upon *.ho side hiils and south slopes. Much of this territory is watered by artesian welis, which abound in large numbers in the vicinity ol San Jacinto and Lakeview. Where these wells do not exist it was next to impossible tn cultivate fruit orchards with urotit until after the advent of the Hemet Water company. Since the completion of this company's pipe line the development of the valley has beeu rapid and sure. The Lake Ilemet Laud company aud Hemet Water company are two separate companies, but with practically the same set of officers and directors. The m> Bt active and important members of these companies are the president, W. T. A'hittier of San Francisco, and the resident manager, Col. E. L. Mayberiy, formerly of Alhambra but now a restdent oi Hemet. The town of Hemet is the headquarters of the two companies and tbe home of tbe principal officers. Space will permit but a very limited description of the little city of Hemet, its history and present attractions. Two years ago the ground upon which tbe town now stands was a dry plain covered with sage brußh and wild oats Soon after, however, tbe Hemet companies began their work of reclaiming that portion of the "footstool." The laud company owned 8000 acres, which has already been brought under the revivfying influence of water, and plenty of it. The source of the Lake Hemet Water company's snpply of water is developed by tbe great Bear valley dam, 110 feet. A great many excellent descriptions of this famous piece of masonry have beej written and the dam itself should be seen to be appreciated. Hemet ie situated on a branch of the Soutbern California railroad, which leaves the main line at Perrll and runs to San Jacinto. It is distant two and a half miles from this la'.ter place, and already a very strong feeling of rivalry has grown up between the two places, which bids fair to grow instetd of receding. Tbe most pretentious building in Hemet is the Hotel Mayberry, a fine two etory brick building, buili by Messrs. Mayberry aud Whittier at a cost of $25,009 and thrown open to the public ou Juue 7tb, of tbis year. The notel is supplied will all the modern conveniences usually found iv tiret-clAss hostleriert, including stationary water, baths, etc., and a complete electric light system, the power for whioh is furnished hy the company's private plant. Another important institution is tbe Hemet flouring mills, John McCool, proprietor. The mill, which is the only one in this section, occupies a line brick building and has a capacity of 50 barrels of flour per day. The plant cost $20,000. Mr. Whittier is now building a twoetory brick block, 100 feet Bquare. The lo.rer part will be used for store buildings and thssecond story will be ueed as on opera bouse. Hemet has a good newspaper, the Hemet news, published by Joe P, Kerr. There are several general stores, tbe largest of which is that oi Hefl'elfinger oi Co., who also occupy a brick block. I here is a drug store, an excellent barber shop, two blacksmithßhopß, harness shop, shoe repairing house, two real estate offices and two lumber yards, the Willamette Lumber Co. and the Newport Wharf and Lumber Co. There are two excellent school buildings, costing $4000 and $3500 respectively, and the district employs four teacbere to instruct the pupils, wbo number about 100 at present. The railroad people have erected a very attractive depot here, and the land oomoany has just finished building four handsome cottages, two of which aro occupied. A large brick block is one of the enterprises of the Hemet company which is down for the near future. A visit to Hemet will well repay the trouble taken, arid the tourist or homeseeker may find something to please him, CHINO. Over 0000 Aorat to Be Planted to Beet*. Kota'. Chino, Nov. 10.—Though the factory season has ended and tomorrow will see garnered the laet sheaves oi a rich aftermath iv the shape of checks for tbe October delivery of beets, the farmers are busily engaged plowing and clearing new lands preparatory to next season's sowing. Next summer tbe factory Beason will probably uomtnence about the firat of .1 uly and continue until the end of November or later. There will be over (1000 acres planted to beets on the Chino ranch and the factory will contract with farmers in Anaheim and other localities lor the crop from 3000 to 4000 acres. In addition to the acreage planted to beets next season several thousand acres will be broken so as to meet the requirements ot the succeeding season. The new school house will be finished before the first of January. When complete it will be the finest school building in the oounty outside of San Bernardino. A force of men are still at work at the sugar factory, and will probably be employed until the opening oi next campaign. Richard Gird lias several thousand head of cattle fattening on beet pulp.

Judge Rhodes, of the Chino Champion, furnished considerable amusement for the frequenters ol Seventh street. The judge tl unused to assisting equestriennes ia alighting from their steeds, and, being pressed into service Thursday alternonn, was so embarrassed as to lose his hold of his charming burden, who was compelled to grasp him about hi 9 neck to escape a fall. This she did promptly and fervently, to the judge's everlasting discomfiture. SANTA ANA. Hume Seeker« Starting in Early—Campaiffn Kxnenaei.

No changes of a material character occurred in the weather during the week, which added one more to the long continued dry period. The deficiency in rainfall is becoming marked as tbe season advances, and is causing some anxiety to farmers wbo are desirous to begin farm work, bnt which cannot bs started till generous rains fall. Hie temperature in the interior was higher than the eeasonal average, elsewhere it was about normal, except in the immediate coast ssotions where it was Blightly below.
