SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1800.
It is a downpour sure. We get the
legislature in Wisconsin, and will elect a
Democrat to succeed Spooner in the
United States senate. This is not a
revolt, it is a revolution.
Republican members of the next Con
gress may stay at home, go atlshing, or
like Mat Quay, saw wood. They will
not be needed in the house. We have a
quorum without them, and will need no
czarism to carry on the necessary work
of the country. Stay at home, boys, and
build political fences for 1892. You will
need them high and strong, for the
people are not for you any more.
A slight numerical error crept into
our article on the numbers of senators
yesterday. The total number of Re
publicans in that body now is 51, giving
that party a majority of 14. It is trivial,
as the majority will be well changed by
1895 at latest. When the people take in
hand the work of turning unfaithful
servants out of office, they do it with
What a pity Czar Reed's congress ad
journed at all! It sat in session "achieve
ing," as the czar said in Ohio, longer
than any of its predecessors in the his
tory of the country, and it at last
achieved the result of last Tuesday.
Had it not adjourned at all there had
been no Republicans in the next house.
The loager it sat the more it "achieved,"
the more the people repudiated its
John Sherman, with frozen and ex
pansive cheek, says he has seen such
revolts as that of Tuesday many times
before. John is supposed to rival in his
longevity the century-living crow, but
— he must be referring to some former
period of, existence,when his soul inhab
ited some fish, when this took place.
These were episodes in pre-Adamite his
tory ,and the records are obliterated from
all tablets excepting John's hard and
It is 1 currently reported that some of
the firms engaged in this section in the
fruit-handling business have cleared
from $50,000 to four times that much
each. Some of these concerns were
started with very little capital. There
is a very enticing opening here for cap
ital in this business. The fruit industry
ia expanding at a very rapid rale, and
■will do so for years to come. Capital
will be needed in this work, and ths
profits will be large.
In 1874 a tidal wave in politics gave a
Democratic majority of 97 in the house of
representatives. Two years later Samuel
J. Tilden was elected president. In 1882
a similar tidal wave resulted in a Demo
cratic majority of 71 in the lower house,
and in 1884 we elected Grover Cleveland
president. In 1890 the great upheaval
gives us a majority of about 120. In
1892 the country will still be with us, as
in 1876 and 1882, and we will again cap
tore the national government.
Silver is beaten down to $1,022,
nearly as low as ever it was. The peo
ple had just time to see how falsely the
Republican congress dealt with this
issue before election daycameon. Well,
the traitors to silver have heard the
people's opinion on that head. The
only shrewd one in the lot was Conger,
of lowa, who betrayed his constituents
by joining with Czar Reed, and little
Ben, to defeat free coinage. He dare
not go back to his people, but got a con
sulship down in Brazil. The other fel
lows went back to their homes with
results now known.
All through the late campaign in this
state the Republican press did no end of
misrepresentation in making out that
boss Buckley was behind Pond. This
was done in the face of the most patent
facts. The "lambs" from hades to the
matutinal repast knifed Pond for coin to
them and their boss in hand paid by the
great mogul of the Republican party,
and by the grasping corporations of the
Bay city. Now the same press, with
as full knowledge of the variance
between the facts and the statements
tell ua that the sweeping Republican
victory there was all only a rebuke to
bosßism and the boss. Why, south of
Market street, where the boss reigns su
preme, and in precincts where there is
not sufficient respectability to make a
light spot in the darkness, nor sufficient
honesty to keep up a fair average
in a penitentiary, there the Republican
majorities swamped the Democratic
minorities. Was this a rebuke to the
devil, administered by his imps? Bah !
Gentlemen, if you must tell lies, for
heaven's sake tell shrewd ones, and not
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 8, 1890,
"uch atupid stuff that their contradiction
is written on their brow. Coin carried
those wards at the bosses' dictation.
The Republican party had need of him,
bought him, paid for him, and got the
miserable goods delivered. And thereby
hangs a tale.
The election, with all its criminations,
recriminations, neglect of business and
other drawbacks, is over, and the neces
sary evil being put behind, let us return
to our duties in the business world.
Fortunately for us, we have business to
return to here, and its volume is steadily
increasing. Los Angeles and the section
around here stand as we approach the
opening of a new decade on vantage
ground of very exceptional value. There
is not on any side an industry peculiar
to our section that is not paying, nor is
there an institution, corporation or firm
that is at all lacking in stability. Few
individuals are to be discovered who are
not making a living, even if their
only means of so doing is their
brawn. If there is one here and there
without his regular meals, out at elbow,
or that has not a dollar or two in his
pocket, the fault is in himself, not in the
section. It is the result of laziness, not
of lack of work.
That tells only half the Btory. Not
only are business affairs of all sort"
solid here, but all industries are in a pro
gressive vein, and the prosperity ahead
and shining on us is growing daily
brighter, and will fairly glow within the
next twelve months. This cannot be
otherwise with the forces at work that
are patent to the most casual observer.
The farmers of this section are
all making money. Every crop
that grows out of the ground finds
ready sale at good prices. Streams of
coin have poured into the granger's
pockets all summer for fruit of various
sorts. Just now the men who grow corn
and those who own walnut groves are
the lucky ones into whose laps the coin
is being showered. Two months from
now the orange growers will have their
innings. They will gather about 3500
carloads of the luscious golden spheres,
that is about 1,000,000 boxes, and the
value on the trees will be about $1,500,
--000 to $2,000,000. Side by side with this
great source of wealth may be arrayed
the crops of winter vegetables, peas,
beans, cauliflower, tomatoes, potatoes
and cabbages that mature along the
frostless foothills all winter long.
There will be a good market for every
pound of these raised this winter, and
there is a big acreage seeded along the
Cahuenga country and in the upper
Azusa valley. If the oranges pay $250
to $500 an acre, these winter vegetables
fall little if any behind them in the
gross sum realized. The expense of
production may be somewhat larger.
The boom of fruit-growing naturally
stimulates the setting out of orchards
on a liberal scale. There will be a great
multitude of young trees set
out in orchard this year. This
planting will embrace besides cit
rus fruits, all the deciduous varieties,
and to these will be added walnuts. So
the dollars are kept in lively and fruit
ful circulation, and the nurserymen will
get their share, while there will be am
ple wages for the men who dig the holes
and cultivate the soil. Another natural
effect of all this is a demand for small
farms. A large number of new settlers
are finding their way in here quietly
and securing little homes which they
proceed to improve. From the east
come frequent inquiries for information
as to this section, and they get it in such
,an attractive shape that the result is
usually to bring the inquirers here
to settle. The display of our pro
ducts making the itinerary of the
union in California on wheels, and that
other, more valuable display, which
Major Truman presides over at Chicago,
are doing excellent work in directing
attention to this as the most attractive
home on the face of the earth. The de
mand thus created for lands is putting
new heart into the holders ; and those
who, a year or two ago, were afraid they
never would be able to give their prop
erty away, now find sale for it at fair
prices, with values slowly/ hardening
preparatory to a sure advance. This is
a most significant fact, and one that the
landless should quickly lay hold of.
There is only one Southern California. Its
area is limited. The frostless belt does
not cover the earth. Lands whose crops
are worth from $100 to $500 a year will
not always be cheap. Soil that may be
had today for $100 to $250 an acre will
be worth when an active movement
springs up again $500 to $1000. It is not
a remote date when land suitable to
orange culture, or that will produce ripe
strawberries and peas in January,will be
worth $2000 an acre in its raw state.
Then there are several new enterprises
on a large scale about to be set on foot
in this city. The Terminal Railway
company is already at work, and will be
so in earnest in a few days. A cargo of
lumber for the levee is here, and the
engines to be used in driving
the piles are on the g-onnd. The
next thing will be to begin work below
the city to reach tide water at Rattle
snake island. The company has al
ready paid nearly $100,000 as part pur
chase price of that valuable harbor prop
erty. It seem 3 surely as if some trans
continental scheme was behind this
enterprise. A smaller enterprise, but
an important one, is the rehabilatation
of the Second-street cable road Prepar
ations are now in hand for construction
of the power-house, on the corner of Sec
ond street and Olive. Other work in
this connection will proceed at once. It
will give work to a number of men for
some weeks. The Belt Electric road
will be begun at a near date and will
keep the ball moving, Another electric
scheme is making progress to go from
Pico Heights to Santa Monica.
As to building in this city, there is a
good deal of talking and planning.
Something substantial is going on all
the time in this direction, and more
will be done. "Where a fine solid block
is going up on Spring street, below Sec
ond, preparations are making for a
much larger block 'on the opposite side
of the street. The sale of the two fine
lots on the corner of Third and Broad
way will lead at once to the building of
a magnificent block that would be a
credit to Broadway, New York. No
edifice in San Francisco will surpass
There is a good deal of capital
coming into this section which will viv
ify many industries and result in im
provement in various lines. The sale of
Rattlesnake island will bring here, in
all, $300,000. The Redondo company
paid up the last of the purchase price of
that property the other day and took a
deed for it. That was $300,000. The
sale of the Fulton block a week ago to
San Francisco parties was for $100,000,
and the sale on the corner of Broadway
and Second referred to above was for
a like amount. Outside of the
city the Pomona and Elsinore road is to
be built at once, and the Temescal tin
mines are to be thoroughly worked.
Any one who glances at this small
suggestion of enterprises must see a
hint of prosperity in it all, and the
shrewd will see a hint as to enhanced
values for land.
Rkadeijs of the Herald will regret to
learn of the very dangerous illness of
ex-Mayor John Bryson, Sr. He has
been very ill from an attack of pleuro
pneumonia for ten days past, and iB
sinking rapidly. Although of very ro
bust physique, he has reached the ad
age of 72, and such an attack is hard to
man. Mr. Bryson has been a
most useful citizen in this com
munity, and has aided among
the very foremost ranks of our
most enterprising citizens in building up
the city. His loss would be much felt,
and his absence would make a large void
in the enterprises of the city. We will
all cling to the hope that he may be
spared still for many years of usefulness.
A "REFORM" MOVEMENT.
Some Solid Citizens Come Out For
A lot of political cranks held a reform
meeting yesterday evening, details of
which appear elsewhere in the Herald
this morning. The same people issued
a circular which has been given wide
circulation. It is needless to tell people
posted at all in politics that these fel
lows are only playing at the game. They
are not in it as a faction in city affairs.
But there is a movement being
quietly worked here in the city
that will put the two old parties on
their ps and qs or they will be swamped.
It is not yet possible to give the names
of those in this movement, but they are
said to be people not novices in politics.
They are all business men of the highest
representative type, bankers, merchants,
manufacturers, business men and tax
payers from top to bottom. A Herald
reporter got wind of this some time ago,
and yesterday succeeded in unearthing
one of the prime movers in the scheme.
He said: "Yes, I am in for reform
in municipal politics. The inde
pendent voter is a power in
politics that is increasing. Look at the
scratching done in the state election
Tuesday. It is time this was so. lam
a Bepublican, but study up the way our
city government has been run for the
past two years. There are too many
Republicans in office, and they all com
bine and there is no one to watch what
schemes they put ud. AVhv, if it had not
been for Mayor Hazard t believe those
fellows would have stolen the streets
and sidewalks. Our plan has been
hatching for a month or more. We
propose to get together by special invi
tation a meeting of representative tax
payers from every ward, and confer aB
to the matter. Some one person of
wide acquaintance and good judgment
will be selected in each ward. He will
choose a committee of, say six, tax
payers in his ward, and these six will
select a man to run for the council. All
these committees from the several
wards will meet to name the
general officers of the city. One
of the obligations put on those
who take part in the movement, is that
they will not seek any office, elective or
appointive, under the city government
sought to be elected. We will meet be
fore either of the party conventions are
held, and have our ticket in the field.
It is my opinion that we will put a
ticket in the field so strong that it will
compel the parties to endorse our men
—the Democrats those of that party on
our ticket, and the Republicans those of
their political faith. 'If they do not,
and put up good men, all right, who
ever may be elected will be a good citi
zen ; and if the old parties put up a bad
man, all right too; then our man will
be elected. There ia our plan. It is
pure, it is simple; it will win."
It looks like a strong combination
from the plan set forth and from the
stability and influence, of the men
whose names are whispered in connec
tion with it. It will put the old parties
on their mettle to nominate thoroughly
reliable men for all the offices, for if
they do not the band will play Annie
Roonie, followed by McGinty.
Gaining a Reputation with Ease.
A South Carolina physician, asked
why he located at Monclova, said: "It is
a first rate place for a doctor. If a man
is sick all you have to do is to tell his
friends (no matter whether the affair is
serious or not) to go to a priest and have
him confessed and prepared for death.
If he dies they will say. 'What a good
doctor he is. He knew he must die, and
so had his spiritual interests attended to.
If he recovers they will say: 'What a
capable physician he must be. The man
was in the last extremity and prepared
for death, and he cured him. So in either
event it is a first rate place in which to
achieve a medical reputation."—Medical
Longfellow's "Village Blacksmith."
Boston has made the discovery that

of whose brawny arms were strong "as
iron bands, is Henry Francis Moore, a
blacksmith still living at Medford.

A Banyan Grove.
Near Gifford station, on the Staten
Island railroad, there is a peculiar piece
of woodland, a spot where the roots of
the trees all attach themselves to the
trunks at from four to six feet above the
level of the ground, giving to the stumps
an odd, spidery appearance. The soil of
the vicinity is very porous, which lends
weight to the opinion that the banyan
like grove has been formed by the action
of frost and water.—St. Paul Republic.
Cleaning; Lamps by Machinery.
A machine for rapidly cleaning the
gauze of miners' safety lamps has
introduced into tho Wombwell collier
ies at Barnsley. It is driven by a belt
and pnlley, and the two brushes seen at
the end of a shaft have a reciprocating
motion. Two other brushes have a cir
cular motion, and are intended to sweep
the ends of the gauze and various parts
of the lamp.—-New York Journal.
A clever New lork journalist, Frank
lin Fyles, recently produced a new play
called "Overlook" at Boston, and critics
commend it as very entertaining, novel
and dramatic. Mr. Fyles has written
several plays, but "Overlook" is said to
be his strongest in conception and origi

5 CENT DEPOSIT STAMPS.
A New Feature in Savings Bank
The Security Savings Bank & Trust Co.
At 148 South Main street, has for the part six
months been receiving Children's Deposits in
sums as low as '25 cents and issuing to each de
positor a pass-book.
As an aid to this department of our Savings
Bank and for the purpose of encouraging Small
Savings by all persons both old ai d young, we
have decided to introduce what is known as the
5-CENT DEPOSIT STAMP.
We will issue aS-cent Stamp, about the size of
a U. S. Government stamp, bearing the name of
To the purchaser of two of these stamps will
be given a blank book containing ten leaves,
each leaf ruled for twenty stamps.
On presentation to the Bank of one of these
leaves with 20 scamps, a pass book will be is
sued to the depositor showing a deposit of one
dollar, which will at once i egin to bear interest
according to the rules of the bank. Every time
a leaf filled with twenty stamps is presented, a
dollar credit will be entered in the pass-book,
and so on.
In order to facilitate the working of the sys
tem and In order to enable all desiring to avail
themselves of its benefits, to secure the stamps
and blank books we will have agents in various
and convenient parts of the city and county,
who on the purchase of two or more stamps,
will give to such depositors a blank book. The
depositor, when he has purchased twenty
stamps and filled one leaf, can send or
bring the same to the ü ßankand secure his pass
This 5 cent feature of Savings Deposits has
been successfully operated in many of the Eu
ropean and several of the prosperous and pro
gressive American Savings Banks: notably the
Citizens Savings Bank in Detroit.
Believing that it is the province of a Savings
Bank to receive and encourage the making of
small deposits by both children and grown
people as well as to receive the larger accounts
of the more well to do, we have decidt dto
adopt this 5 Cent Stamp Bystem as the simplest
and most effective way of obtaining the end
