A LONG LOOP.
A Hundred and Fifty Miles
of Fruit Belt.
Los Angeles to Redlands and
Out By the Foothills and Return By
Leagues of Land All Devoted to Citrus
and Deciduous Fruit Grow
The Herald's tramp reporter left the
Santa Fe depot yesterday morning at
8:30 bound for Redlands. In three
hours he was set down at his destina
tion, sixty miles distant, where he had
three hours to gain some information
about this place, one of the latest
developments of the new progress that
is at work in Southern California. By
the time this was done the train was
back from Mentone and the return trip
was begun. Changing cars at San Ber
nardino, a train via Santa Ana was taken,
and the journey home made by a route
different from the route traveled out,
via Pasadena and the Azusa. As the
primary object of the trip was to see
Redlands, the first chapter in this brief
history will be devoted to that place. As
soon as the depot was gained a bee
line was made for the neat and cozy
office of the Citrograph, where the editor,
Scipio Craig, was found immersed
mentally in an editorial to prove that
Redlands is the center of all
creation. Craig is choke full of
Redlands. He knows the day and
date when each nail in each building
was driven, and also when each tree in
the place was planted. He is enthusi
astic to a degree about the place. His
story is somewhat like this: Five years
ago "there were three or four houses this
side of the river, and six or seven on the
Lugonia side —ten or eleven in all on
both slopes of the mountains as far as
one could see from the highest point.
Three years ago the first brick was laid
in the town, and now intimations are
that the census enumerator has counted
1,500 people within the city limits, and
as usual the census man has not got all
the people. In October, 1888, there
were 1,208 people in Redlands, and in
the two years since a great many new
people have come in. In the last city
election in April, 1800, there were 438
votes east, and there are 558 children of
scbool age in the city. There are in the
city 2,000 to 2,500 souls, and 500 or 600
outside, making perhaps 3,000 in all the
country about including the city of
course. There are six church buildings
in the city. Two Congregational, one
Baptist, one Episcopal, one Pres
byterian and one Methodist.
The Odd Fellows and Masons have
lodges here, and the Knights of Pythias,
A. O. U. W. and G. A. R. people are
going to organize. There is also a lodge
of the Royal Arcanum. Redlands built
the first building of the Y. M. C. A. in
Southern California, paid for it and owns
it. It is a two-story edifice 40x70 feet.
There are two hanks 'in the city, the
First National and the Union, Red
lands is incorporated as a city of the
sixth class. E. G. Judson is president
of the board of trustees, L. W. Clark is
clerk, William Bunnagin is marshal and
Frank P. Morrison, president of the
First National Bank, is treasurer. The
town has three miles of street car line
in successful operation. It has three
railroads running to it, the Santa Fe.
the Southern Pacific and the motor
from San Bernardino. Last year there
were shipped from Redlands sixty-eight
cars of oranges and forty-six cars of
dried fruit. There were thirty cars of
grapes and raisins shipped. Redlands has
5,000 acres of land in orchard, and there
have been planted the past spring 1,300
to 1,400 acres of new orchard, nearly all
of it being oranges. The city was as
sessed last year for $1,800,000. Its area
is 3 L .}' miles east and west and 5 miles
north and south. A good deal of prop
erty is changing hands, most of the sales
being of unimproved land at $200 to $400
per acre. Ten acres were sold yester
day morning at $350. Here is a Cali
fornia story: Seven years ago Mr.
Morey, a carpenter, came to Redlands
and bought eighteen acres of land. He
planted this to oranges, and his wile did
much of the work on it, while he worked
at his trade to support the family. The
other day he sold it for $20,000," reserv
ing the young orchard stock in the
nursery, which he sold off, the stuff
netting him $20,000. When he came to
Redlands he had only $1,300 in all the
world. He still has a ten-acre
ranch left which is worth $10,000.
To make $50,000 out of $13,000 in seven
years is something. Kedlands has three
hotels, not counting the Terracina,
which is on the mesa two miles from the
city. The Terrace villa is kept by Mr.
T. T. Brown, once of the Nadeau. It is
a beautiful house on the Lugonia side,
surrounded with tine orange trees. It is
well kept. The water right of Kedlands
is sufficient to flood the countryside.
There are half a score of sources from
which water is derived, and one of them
is the great Bear-valley dam. Mr. J. G.
North, formerly of Riverside, is presi
dent of this company. Cook A Langley,
of this city, have a big drying establish
ment at Kedlands, but it is not in opera
tion. The people are all drying their
Such is tile story Mr. Craig tells of his
pretty town. It proves that the boom
in this section is not very disastrously
burst. Redlands was begun when times
had become dull, after the great excite
ment, but it has grown as narrated
above, aud is now growing at such a
pace that a carload of lumber a day is
received at the depot.
That is a story of one spot. It is in a
measure true ot all the country passed
over. From Pasadena, through Sierra
Madre, Monrovia, Duarte, Azusa, Glen
dora, Lordsburg, Claremont, Pomona,
Ontario, Cucamonga, Rialto, San Ber
nardino, to Redlands and Mentone, the
whole foothill country for sixty miles is
being planted to fruit. Oranges take
the palm, but all sorts of de
ciduous orchards are seen. They
are all doing well, and show
a vigorous health never surpassed. The
return trip developed as marvelous de
velopments. The country all about
Colton is set to fruit. The mess under
the Gage canal is being set out rapidly.
At South Riverside there has been a
large acreage set. Orange and Santa
Ana are taking on new life. The or
chards look well.- Of course there and
at Anaheim, Fullerton, Los Nietos and
Rivera there is a change of scene. De
ciduous orchards, walnuts and corn
fields prevail over the citrus varieties.
They all look well. The orange is there
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; FRIDAY MORNING, .TUNE 27, 1890.
in force, but it is not the only or nearly
the only thing seen. A good many new
orchards are being set, and new and old,
citrus and deciduous, look the picture of
health. The walnut trees are loaded
to breaking with fine fruit. It is a
difficult thing to determine if oranges or
walnuts pay the best. The latter costs
less to plant, the land costs less, the
trees cost less, and they come into bear
ing earlier, while they pay almost as
well. Still the orange leads, it must be
confessed, for some of the Redland or
chards yielded $750 to $040 worth of
fruit per acre last year.
All along the line vineyards were seen
and they all look well. At San Bernar
dino the vines are in perfect vigor, and
bearing well. So they are at River
side, the Rincon and Yorba.
Several new vineyards set this year
were seen and they are doing as well as
vines ever did. Near Santa Fe Springs
are some vineyards set three yeais ago
when the disease was at its worst. These
vines have never been irrigated,
but they are doing excellently.
They are covered with fruit.
All signs multiply to show that the vine
disease is at an absolute end, and next
winter will witness a great boom in
planting new vineyards.
At South Riverside a curious phe
nomenon is observed. On the plain along
the railroad track the water is flooding
the whole country. No one can account
for it, as it never was so before. It
comes up from the ground, and must be
either the water used above for irriga
tion purposes that sinks, encounters a
stratum of rocks and comes to the sur
face again, or it is owing to the abundant
rains of the past thirteen years which
have rilled the mountains with water.
A pleasing feature on the mesa east of
Santa Fe Springs is a large forest of
young gum trees some one has planted.
They are growing apace.
The orchardists are learning that they
must fertilize their trees. At Riverside
many carloads of sheep manure were
seen hauled there to go in the orange
groves. A few days ago Mr. A. S. White,
of Riverside, said to the writer that
they had mastered the problems in con
nection with orange-growing excepting
this one of fertilizing. It is manifest
they have not quite mastered this one.
Sheep manure from the corrals is often
no better than old chips. It has lain in
the sun for years, and has caught the
winter rains as long. All the ammonia
is washed out of it. The labor of getting
it to the orchards is great and expen
sive. Most of it is labor lost.
Will the production of fruit in this sec
tion be overdone? Well, not in this
generation, nor in the next, nor the
next. Ten years ago the apple orchards
of the United States exceeded in area
the whole territory of the state of Cali
fornia. We have in this section a few
specialties that no other part of the con
tinent will produce. The markets of
the country are ours. The area suited
to each of these specialties is very lim
ited, and the supply will never equal
the demand. All we need is speedy and
reasonable means of transportation.
Fruit specials ought to go into Chicago
in four days, and they will go there in
that time before long. There may be,
probably will be, 4,000 cars of oranges to
haul out of here next winter. This
number will increase very rapidly. It
will pay the railroads to build up the
business, and they will do it. Move
ments are on foot to take care of our
crops. Belford, of the publishing house
of Belford & Clark, and a son of Andy
McNally, of the map and railroad pub
lishers," Rand & McNally, all of Chicago,
have a big plant nearly ready at San
./nan C'apistrano to put up olives, olive
oil, jams, jellies, marmalades and crys
talized fruit. It is a concern in strong
hands, directed by wise heads. Their
aim will be to put up articles absolutely
pure. Cheap sugar is all we need. The
Chino will furnish that. There is little
doubt that the Oxnards will put
in a plant on the Chino
to manufacture beet sugar. Next
year, Belford it McNally will put up a
plant at Lordsburg similar to that at
Anyone who has taken the pains to
read the above account of what is do
ing will have Ins misapprehension cor
rected as to things being flat about
here. There is a pretty good movement
on foot in many branches oi industry.
It will grow ami spread until the coun
try is at a flood-tide of prosperity. Next
winter there will be a very large inpour
ing of new people. Those who came
last year are writing to their friends.
The false impression as to our condition
is being done away, and the truth is be
ing learned. There will be another

A Variety of New Rumors
About the Cross Eoad.
An Extension to San Pedro is
An Alliance With the San Gabriel
Road is Expected.
Various Other Railway Matters—The Car
of Apricots Delivered in Chicago
in Good Condition.
The Los Angeles, Pasadena and (ilen
dale road.which is often spoken of as the
"Cross road," for the reason that Cap
tain Cross was the builder, is again the
subject of many Hying rumors, some of
which seem to have foundation that en
titles them to credit. Shortly after the
road was completed and celebrated its
opening last winter, Richard Kerans,
one of the chief owners, came out from
St. Louis to look over the property. It
was decided to make a change in the
management and the interest of Captain
Cross was purchased, and Mr. Burnett
was selected to succeed him.
Mr. Burnett's first visit to the coast
took place a couple of months ago and
at that time it was known that an
option was obtained by a prominent cap
italist of this city, 'acting in the interest
of this road, on Rattlesnake island.
Papers were filed at the time and shown
to various parties, so there can be no
reasonable doubt that the transaction
actually took place. A counter rumor
to this was that the option was not ob
tained for tlie Los Angeles. Pasadena
and Glendale road, but for the San Ga
briel Rapid Transit Company. It is cer
tain that some of the owners of the
latter road were concerned in the deal,
and it is now supposed that some sort of
a consolidation of the two companies is
likely to come about with the purpose
of making an extension to tide water.
It is given out on the authority of Cap
tian Cross that the extension will'go along
the east side of the Los Angeles river
and will run to San Pedro. It is also
asserted that the work is likely to begin
in a very short time. Negotiations for a
right-of-way from this city to Rattle
snake island have been under way for
some time, but it has not been clearly
understood in whose interest they
have been conducted. There no
longer remains much doubt that
they are in the interest of
the Los Angeles, Pasadena and (ilendale
road and that the extension has been
definitely decided upon.
It has from the first been the theory
of many of the best informed railway
men of this city that the so-called
"Cross" road was built for the use and
benefit of some one of the two transcon
tinental roads that are known to be
reaching out in this direction. The
construction of the road and bridges
would seem to indicate that it was built
with other plans in view than that of
making a road for local traffic. It is
know n, moreover, that the projectors of
the road have intimate financial rela
tions with prominent railway men in
the east. Whether the power that lies
back of these operations is the Union Pa
cific or the V underbill interest or the !
Missouri Pacific, or whether it is none of
these and the line from here
to the coast is the plan of the Ore
gon Transportation Company, who wish
to be free from the Southern Pacific in
their coast steamship traffic is not
known, and the whole matter lies in the
shadowy domain of rumors.
Other Railway News.
The special car of apricots which left
San Bernardino last Friday at 4a. m.,
over the Santa Fe, arrived in Chicago
yesterday, and tiie fruit was delivered to
the consignee at 8 o'clock in the morn
ing. It is reported by telegram that it
| was found in excellent condition. This
is the best time ever made on fresh
| fruit from this part of the state —148
• hours from the departure from tlie point
| at which it was picked to its delivery in
! Chicago. The shipping of green fruit
I from this section has not been a success
! chiefly for the reason that, as a rule, the
I fruit was kept too long in transit. With
I the present condition of the eastern
j market and with the large crop now on
the trees in Southern California, the
: railroads are likely to exert themselves
to make good time and assist in putting
the fruit into the eastern cities.
