OUR NEW YEAR'S NUMBER.
We shall issue a New Year's number
of the Hkbald of special attractions, and !

That it will be distributed broadcast

THE WAY TO DEVELOP A COUNTRY.
No people should be unwilling to
learn, and the good souls of Los Angeles
have much to learn. While there is no
•question that this city, already the
metropolis of Southern California, will
maintain that status, and become a city
not only of great importance but of
unii I tie attractions, we can help out re
sults by enterprise and work. The other
djyrthe telegraph advised us that the Bear
Valley Water company, of San Bernar
dino, had incorporated with a capital
stock of $4,000,000. The purpose of this
movement is to develop water. In the
old days Mr. Judah, the engineer, and
one of. the principal promoters of the
Central Pacific rail way, said that some
day every mountain canon of California,
which had an extensive water-shed,
would be dammed, and the reservoirs
thus formed would be a prolific source of
wealth. At the time when Mr. Judith
gave utterance to this enlightened
opinion his ideas were looked upon as
chimerical. Not so thought the men
who have created such varied and per
manent sources of wealth in our neigh
boring county of San Bernardino.
They have adopted Mr. Judah's far
seeing idea. Their ditches have been
really Pactolean streams. These men
have gone out into the immense waste
places ihat were formerly the ranges of
sheep and cattle, have subdivided them,
and poured out water with a lavish
hand, with the result of an increase of
wealth almost without precedent in so
short a time. It is true that the same
thing has been done in Los Angeles
county at various pointa, as at Anaheim,
Santa Ana and Pomona, and other
places, notably in the San Gabriel val
ley, with its peerless Pasadena.
But we have halted in the good work.
Having put our hands to the plow, we
have permitted ourselves to be turned
aside. Where are the great ranchos
that are lveing subdivided in Los Angeles
county. No man can point to them.
Where are the efforts being made to de
velop water, or even to utilize that which
lias already been developed? Echo
And yet, all around Los Angeles, there
are superb ranches which might be made
the source of great wealth and growth
in population to both city and county.
We will particularize a few of them.
Taking the nearest, there is the Laguna
ranch, a magnificent property which
rnns up to the very edge of the'city.
Here the utilization of the waters
of the Arroyo Honda would in five
years make this ranch the center of a
population oi thousands, and the arena
of almost unlimited production. If this
ranch were placed on the market, with
the water facilities that could be readily
developed, the results would be magical
in the growth of our city. And so of the
Puente, the Santa Anita, the San Fran
cisquito, the San Vicente y Santa Mon
ica, the Rodeo de las Aquas, and others.
The only immediate ray of hope we see
in the situation is that this last beautiful
rancho is shortly to be subdivided and
sold. We have the assurances of Mr. A.
H. Decker to that effect, and that is con
clusive of the matter. What the Messrs.
Jones & Baker propose to do with their
splendid San Vicente y Santa Monica
ranch, or what Mr. John Wolfskill con
templates as to his great holdings, we
do not know.
What we do know is that Los Angeles
ought to imitate the example of San
Bernardino county. We ought to de
velop here a class of men such as has been
evolved there—men capable of conceiv
ing such immense projects as that of the
Bear Valley, with its capitalization of
Why should we not get into the swim ?
Ixw Angeles is of course the peerless
second city of the Pacilic coast. There
is little danger of her relative rank ever
being disturbed. But why not buttress
her and prop her up with the infinite
variety and volume of the production
which could be so easily insured here?
Why not people her splendid stretches
of land—mesa and bottom —with a
thrifty population counting up into the
Why not? And again, why not? With
ranchos subdivided and water developed,
where is the limit to the production
which would pour into our city, like a
hundred streams into a lake, tilling up
the basin with surging waters and over
throwing ije banks ?
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 26, 1890,
Some distinguished English statesmen
are quoted as being a little drastic in
their criticism on the killing of Sitting
Bull. That wily Sioux wag the red
handed murderer of Custer and his
brave band. He was a disturbing ele
ment in his tribe at all times, and his
whole life was spent in fomenting war
between his people and the whites. He
was not a warrior, but a skulking cow
ard, whose influence was gained and
maintained by being a medicine man.
He was a humbug, and a most danger
ous one among his ignorant followers.
He was killed while he and his
followers were resisting arrest, he
being at that time fomenting a war be
tween his people and the government.
Let us see! We believe it was these
same soft hearted people of England
who blew the Sepoys of India into
mince meat from the cannon's mouth,
when these people mutinied against un
just English rule and usurpation. Our
Indians are incapable of civilization.
Tbe Hindus are highly civilized und ca
pable in all respects of self government
if England would but let them alone.
There is nothing to justify England's
usurpation of power over India.
It in a noteworthy circumstance that
Loe Angeles on Christmas night filled
two large theaters to enjoy the rendition
of opera as presented by Miss Emma
Abbott and Miss Juch. Amusements of
a standard character are sure here to
j receive a liberal and appreciative recog
[ nition. There is no other city of tho
j size of L<os Angeles in the United States
where two great audiences could be
called out to hear English or
| any other opera in a single night,
ilt haa long been remarked that
' entertainments oi a really high charac
ter are sure to be well patronized in this
J city. Some of the conductors of snide
' shows have left here after failures which
j were deserved on every ground, and
have sought to create the impression
that, ours was a city which was not re
sponsive to the claims of art, but the
prodigious success of the National Opera
company, of the Abbott and Juch com
binations, and of a score of other mer
itorious ventures, has shown to the
contrary with great emphasis.
The San Francisco Examiner set out
to get a present for every poor child in
that great city. It was a most laudable
undertaking and proved most success
ful. Here is the way the paper speaks
on Wednesday morning, the day before
! Christinas: "Please stop! That is
! what the Examiner is compelled to say
this morning to the generous contribu
tors to the Orphans' Christmas fund.
The fund is full—full to overflowing—
and today the poor children are going
to get the benefitof it. There is enough
Ito give every orphan a present, and if a
j single poor child in San Francisco fails
| to have a merry Christmas it will he be
• cause we have not been able to li nil him."
1 That tells a great story in praise of the
bay city. The book that Christinas is
j founded on says, "Charity covers a mul
j titude oi sins." It is proper that it
j should, for as we see things, it is the
] crown of all virtues. San Francisco peo
ple have won a name for themselves in
Tut: fact that the Farmers' Alliance
carried South Carolina is not a whit
more remarkable than the other fact
that it had previously carried Kansas.
Both of these slates had been wedded
to the Democratic and Republican par
ties respectively. The result of these
elections proves that the politicians will
have to reckon with the new movement.
What force it w ill gather in California
remains to be seen. It is almost certain
that the percentage of loss must run
largely to the Republican party here as
elsewhere. All the leading demands of
the new organization are, as a matter of
fact, embodied in the attitude of the
Democratic party. California is such an
eccentric state, however, that, it is
scarcely possible to forecast the effect of
any new movement long in advance.
At least in one respect there was a
marked difference in the way Christmas
day passed here and at the east. The
day with us was absolutely cloudless,
and the temperature ranged at 70 de
grees most of the day. At midnight it
was so warm that one not only did not
want an over coat, but he was tempted
to dotr the under one. People enjoyed
strawberries, tomatoes and green peas
fresh picked from the vines, in almost
every house in the city. At the east as
the people sat down to their turkey and
stale turnips and cabbage taken from a
pit in the cellars, a snow storm of un
usual violence was driving everything
indoors and making life a burden over
Am interview in the telegraphic dis
patches today, giving the opinions of
Senator Paddock of Nebraska, is a fair
specimen of the serious rent that exists
in the ranks of the Republican party.
This western senator is at open war
with the leaders of his party, and de
clares that his constituents are so too.
The Lodge force bill tinds no adherents
in Nebraska, where t he people are clam
oring for more money to develop tbe
latent resources of a great new empire.
But what can men like Paddock do?
The Bouroon ring controls the party,
and his voice is drowned In a hubbub of
discordant cries for partisan legislation.
i That the next presidency is already a
j matter of eager competition may be un-
I derstood when we state, what to the
J genera! reader is unknown, that several
printing bureaus are already at work
booming favorite candidates. Mr. Til
den taught the politicians a lesson
which they have learned thoroughly
when he showed them how to form pub
lic opinion. His masterhand will proba
bly remain without an equal, but never
theless the lesson was not lost.
It may be questioned as to whether
any opera company, no matter what its
merit, has a right to keep any audience
waiting till 9 o'clock before ringing up
the curtain. The merits of the Juch
Opera company are great—very great
and very various—but the public have
rights in the premises that ought to be
The great work which a newspaper
can often perform waa shown by the Hew
York World's expose of the Harrison-
Huston conspiracy to colonize the north
with negroes from the south, with a
view to securing some of the close-mar
gined pivotal northern states for the
Republican party. When Senator Voor
hees, in his place in the senate, spoke a
few words of just condemnation of the
contemplated infamy, the whole country
rang with his words, but it was only a
small proportion of tho people who knew
that the sole merit of the expose be
longed to our able New York contempo
Tiik Hawaiian government has made
the latest onslaught on the MeKinley
bill. By the reciprocity treaty existing
between that kingdom and our govern
ment, sugar was admitted free, whereas
other imported sugar paid a duty. This
was a decided advantage to the Kanakas.
This advantage is done away by the Me-
Kinley bill, which admits all sugar duty
free. King Kalakaua now claims that
to make his interests whole we must
pay the bounty provided for sugar of
domestic growth. Fearfully and won
deifully made is Ibis MeKinley bill.
Women who have any brains to pre-
I serve will hereafter be careful how they
I fasten their hats on with long pins. An
I old lady lost her life in New York yes-
I terday by falling and having one of
| these spikes driven into her brain. The
! woman with no brains will go on dress
| ing as of yore.
Does the decision of Judge MeKinley
I settle the Rowan-Forrester contest? It
' ought not to do so. Is not the board of
: supervisors, like all legislative bodies,
j judges of the qualifications of its own
| members? Some court where there is
! less law and more justice is what the
j people are looking for.

How Christmas Was Passed at the
That Los Angeles will always do
handsomely by a theatrical attraction
has so often been proven beyond doubt,
one wonders that it can ever be called
in question. Yesterday Emma .Abbott
closed an engagement at the Los Angeles
with a matinee and evening perform
ance, and Emma Juch opened an en
gagement at the Grand in the evening.
Tho matinee was the Rose ot' Castile,
with Abbott as the Queen. The house
was a very good one, despite tlie fact
that Christmas dinners were being pre -
pared and eaten. Both as queen and
peasant Abbott was exquisitely dressed.
Her robe of state was a splendid cos
tume, such as it is doubtful if any
queen's ever equaled in real life. The
sweet songs of the pretty opera she sang
with delicate grace and admirable taste.
The very soul of the mu3ic she drew
from tiie oh rases.
In the evening the opera was Verdi's
UTrovatore. Abbott sang Leonora, a
role in which she is so familiar
to the Los Angeles audiences.
The liouse was densely packed
from the boxes by the stage
to the remotest seat in the topmost gal
lery, and another houseful of disap
pointed people bad to be turned away, j
All through the opera the house fairly
rang with the rounds of applause that
rewarded .Miss Abbott for her beautiful
interpretation of the music. In the
great prison scene the recognition of the
merits oi the performance was a real
ovation. It is seldom that audiences
disposed to be rather cold in their crit
ical exactions warm up as did the
one last night. The whole strength of
the Abbott company was in the opera,
Annandale as Azucena, Pruette as the
Count, Broderick as Ferrando, etc.
They all won warm recognition at the
hands of the packed house. The
choruses were excellently done, the
Anvil chorus being notably fine. Miss
Abbott's season was a most successful
one, as is always the case when she
visits Lob Angeles.
It would certainly be a matter of re
gret to have to chronicle the demise of
so sweet a singer and so great an artist
as Miss Juch, but it looks as if she were
to be the late Miss .Inch in Los Angeles.
When she appeared at the Grand some
what more than a year ago her train was
hours late, and the curtain did not rise
until 10 o'clock. Tho good nature
ot" a gre-t houseful of people was at that
time a matter of general remark. It was
a case of the same thing over again last
night. The train was hours late, and so
was the performance. A house tilled to
the doors was on hand at 8 o'clock, and
the people again snt patiently until the
curtain rose on Meyerbeer's Huguenots.
The cast was:

Musical people need not be told that
there is work cut out for any company
that attempts to sing the ponderous
score of Lea Hinruenots. There are few
operas more difficult to sing satisfac
torily. The Queen, Valentine, Urban,
St. Bris, Raoul and Marcel all are roles
that make loud and repealed demands
for great work. Juch was exceedingly
satisfactory in her part. Her voice has
all the freshness of youth. It is full,
rich, sonorous and melodious. Her
methods are good and she is a good actor
too. Her work was highly appre
ciated last night and won for
her a large share of recognition from all
parts of the house. Vetta came next to
the star in the honors he won. His
voice is a fine one well handled. Mr.
Hedmon'dt is not at all equal to the try
ing role he assayed. His voice is ex
cellent in some portions of its register,
but gives way in others. It ia not ex
actly in the higner or lower notes that
the weakness exists. It breaks at sev
eral places. Miss Maconda was herewith
the Boetonians some months ago, and has
a warm place in the affections of Los
Angeles people. She sang the queen
The chorus is a powerful one and
well trained, while the orchestra is ex
cellent. A professional musician at the
critic's elbow whispered that the wind
is too voluminous for the strings in it.

Miss Juch opened in this popular opera
here a year ago, and gave great satisfac
A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
'■ A Day That Was Full of Enjoyment
i Yesterday was only eventful in a pleas-
I ant way in this idly ; at nearly all the
churches services were held, and the
' Sunday school scholars in particular had
' a good time, the aunual distribution of
I gilts being a feature of the occasion,
j The services at the Cathedral of St.
| Vibiana were of a most impressing
character. The altars were elaborately
decorated with the beautiful inscription,
i "Gloria in Kxcelsis Deo" above the main
| altar, indicating the lovely feast the
church was celebrating. Rev. Thomas
Shaw, C. M., delivered a most excellent
discourse touching on the principle parts
of the day's feast. Father Shaw is in
deed an orator. The music at the 5
o'clock mass was Prof. A. Q. Gardner's
St. Joseph's mass and was excellently
| At 10 o'clock Pontifical mass was cele
brated by the rendering of M. A. Gil
sinn's grand Italian niiti. which was
rendered by a quartette of soloists
and a grand chorus. The beauti
ful solos in this mass were
impressively sung, and the orches
! tration by Prof. A. G. Gardner, under
i the direction of his baton, added greatly
|to make this the best rendered mass at
the cathedral for some years. Mr.
I Joseph F. Nulle, the tenor, proved to be
, in excellent voice.
I At 8:30 a. in. Father Farley, assisted
|by Master Waiter Morgan, held high
| mass at the county jail,
j At 2 p. m. the prisoners had a fine
'. dinner of ox-tail soup, boiled ham, pota
toes, bread nnd a cup of wine, supplied
Iby Jailer Darcy. This was followed
I with a cup of ice cream for each pris
i oner, the gift of Mr. Fred Linde, for
i whom three rousing cheers were given.
I At 4:30 in the afternoon, contrary to
general custom, a third meal of coffee,
bread, meat and cabbage was served —
the usual jail meal.
At the city jail the prisoners had a
similar treat by the generosity of Chief
Glass, who saw that they all had a piece
|of turkey and a better meal than some
. of them ever had before.
The perfect weather attracted many to
! the seashore, and West Lake park was
| well filled. Altogether it was a very
merry Christmas. The stockings were
; found well filled in the morning, and no
j one could be found who had had tough
Telegraphers Present Her With a
Pretty Christinas Greeting.
The Western Union telegraphers in
1882 went on a strike that will long be
remembered. Miss Lizzie Annandale,
the contralto of the Abbott Opera com
pany, was then in Chicago, and she
volunteered for and successfully gave a
benefit performance for the strikers 1
which netted them a comfortable sum >
in their hard times. The operators in [
the Western Union office of this city, I

To their craft, clubbed together and at
last evening's performance presented her
with probably the most magnificent
basket of roses ever seen, even in this
land of blooms. Accompanying the
blooms was a decorated caul bearing an
expression of the goodwill felt for the
kind singer by the donors.
A Woman of the Prenont.
For my own part I don't consider the
American woman the creature of the
future. I regard her as the individual
of the present. She is healthy, wealthy
and wise—enough. We don't want her j
to know too much—the nation objects
to it. We like her just as she is, with-]
out one plea in favor of dress reform, or
physical culture, and we grow extrava
gantly nroud of her when we see her
contrasted with other women. She
may be a bit like the lily of the field,
toiling not, nor spinning, but when she
is it is because the American
man considers it his greatest pleas
ure to have a lily in his establish
ment and to admire it. When she does
toil she does it in about half
the time that it would take the French
woman, and, if it is a question >t
money-making, can do more in one
day "than the average English
woman could in a year. I don't,
believe in her having to make money.
I belong to the association that believes
in the cuddling-up close-io-a-man-and
being-taken-care-of, but my heart does
beat a bit quicker when I think how an
American woman can do it if she wants
to. She has a lovely determination to
"get there"—and she arrives on time.
It is simply and absolutely blissfully
beautiful. That sounds exaggerated to
a man, and 1 don't know whether those
are adjectives or adverbs, but they ex
press what I mean and therefore do their
duty in life.—[Bab's Letter.
