OUR NEW YEAR'S NUMBER.
We shall issue a New Year's number
of the Herald of special attractions, and
shall print a large extra edition of it.
That it will be distributed broadcast
through the country the history of
previous publications proves. Advertis
ers would do well to bear this fact in
mind, and should seek to be repre
sented in its columns.
WHERE A GREAT WORK IS GOING ON.
If any one desires to have anything
like an adequate idea of the immediate
surroundings of Los Angeles, he ought to
take a drive, say. to Tropica This will
show him the rich Verdugo country and
give him a glimpse of the splendid pos
sibilities of agriculture and horticulture
that exist in that region, and he will
obtain, besides, a prospect of the San
Fernando valley, which has been a
source of wealth in the past, and which
will be much more so in the future.
Crossing the Los Angeles river, he passes
such "boom" districts as Ivanhoe, but
he finally comes on a region on the
heights back of the city from which he
surveys a panorama of unmatched splen
dor, embracing the city of Los Angeles,
the great expanse of the Los An
geles valley and the Pacific ocean. On
, : these noble heights charming improve
| ments have already been made. Young
[orange groves have been set out that
jshow gieat progress. Some day or
iottier. this will be the most picturesque
(region of L)s Angeles.
But, dismissing scenic attractions, one
can drive to the northwest from this
point until Pico street is struck, and
this leads one straight out to the Ca
huenga valley, a region which cannot he
surpassed in the world for the prodi
gality of its returns to the farmer or the
urchardiet. As you approach Colegrove,
the place of ex-United >tates Senator
Cornelius Cole, you pass the place of
Mr. Cower, who has met great success
in raising the genuine strawberry
guava. The ease with which this deli
cate plant has been raised shows that
this belt is absolutely frostless. A
Kloridian who examined this plant ex
pressed his surprise that it could be
raised in this climate.
The exposure of the Cahuenga valley
to the south and east protects it abso
* lately from any of the hurtful winds of
this section. The soil is a miracle of
richness. Water is abundant on every
hand, and it can be struck at trifling
depths. This is where the wonders have
been accomplished in truck-gardening.
Hugging the foothills, you see immense
stretches of peas and tomatoes. There
are farmers in the Cahuenga valley that
have cleared as much as $3000 off of an
acre of early tomatoes. This, of course,
seems extravagant. The Herald makes
no statement that it cannot substantiate.
Every acre which you there see in peas
will yield its owner $300 net, at least.
Winding up to the middle of the foot
hills one comes upon one prosperous
home after another. In addi
tion to the profit accruing from
the cultivation of the soil the
view of valley and ocean is
something indescribably fine. We stood
in Mr. Yaeger's banana grove, and
heard a Boston gentleman say that he
had been over the entire world, and had
seen nothing like the valley and its
Just here is where the mid-winter
vegetables for the sixty-five millions of
the American people must be raised. It is
from this splendid exposure, sure of a
gentle heat on every day of the year,
and protected from exposure to any
harsh wind, that they must he raised.
Standing on one of the Cahuenga
slopes, the expanse of valley is some
thing to marvel at. It is the richest
niece of soil of equal extent on the
globe. There is nothing it. will not
grow. It is comparatively unused, and
comprises a number of ranchos of great
attractions to investors. •
These ranchos should all be subdi
vided, and a great and industrious popu
lation should lie gathered on lands
which are now only used for cattle
ranges. It is pleasant to know that a
break will be made in this direction in
a few weeks by the subdivision and sale
of the four thousand acres of the Rancho
Rodeo de las Aquas. This is only six
miles from the city line of Los Angeles,
and is a property which, properly de
veloped,will add amazingly to the asses
sable valuation of Los Angeleß county
and to the prosperity of the city. An
active and thrifty population will
shortly replace the cows and sheep that
formerly depastured it.
Why should not this good work of sub
division and sale go on ? Why should
not ten thousand toilers, who amass
wealth from the soil by delving in it,
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 28, 1890.
interpose between Los Angeles and the
~va at Santa Monica?
No one can say that there is not room
for these people, nor can any one say
that $300 an acre per annum as the min
imum figure for the raising of early veg
etables is not an inducement to the man
with muscle. We pass the $3000 worth
of tomatoes raised on a single acre as an
extreme figure, although it is a veritable
fact. But surely a man can afford to
pay $160 to $200 an acre for land on
which he can yearly more than reim
burse himself lor his outlay by the pro
ducts of his purchase?
On with the boom founded on produc
tion ! Subdivide the ranchos. The
multitudes who are about to pour into
Los Angeles need a field for their ener
gies. Give them many fields. We
have them here of far more value than
the field of Macpelah, for which Abra
ham paid shekels of silver in the old
days; Develop the matchles Cahuenga
vailey, with its unlimited ability to sup
ply the east with mid-winter green
peas, string beans, tomatoes, artichokes
and other specialties. Give the east

Hon. John P. Jones went east yester
day to take his place in the senate of
the United States, a body which he has
graced in a conspicuous manner. It will
be noticed that this enlightened states
man, like his co-adjutor, Senator Stew
art, has no use for force bills. He
despises and deprecates such wretched
expedientsto maintain party supremacy.
He does not believe that the intelli
gence, enterprise and manhood of the
south should be placed under the heel
of the negro through the aid of bayo
nets. Ttiat measure, begotton of the
insolence oi a momentary ascendancy of
the Republican party, is doomed.
Little Benny, emerging from the shadow
of his grandfather's hat. may try, but
Jhe will try in vain, to vitalize it. It. is
!as dead as the mummy of Rameses the
111., or as one of the cities of the plains.
[ It has fallen still-born, and it has fallen,
like Lucifer, never to rise again. Mr.
| Jones is a statesman of broad gauge
principles. He has been the verit
ahle Corypheus of the movement which
will ultimately restore silver to its
rightful relation with gold in the cir
culation of the world. He believes that
the United States needs a generous
measure of currency to enable it to go
through the proper ordeal of develop
ment. He believes that this country
should be intellectually and financially
j independent of Great Britain, and that
! it should receive its inspiration from the
| great west, instead of from an east which
' has been enervated through its depen
dence on English ideas in government,
! financeandsocial matters. Mr. Jones will
shortly be elected to the senate of the
United States lor the fourth time from
j Nevada. He will go back to the seat
' which he has so highly honored practi
cally without a contest. Ihe Democrats
j may go through the form of nominating
| some one against him, though this is
j doubtful, lie is about to receive the
' compliment once accorded to Sunset Cox,
that of being returned to his exalted
j position practically without opposition.
The old county courthouse was sold
yesterday for $100,500. This property is
174 and 15' i feet in length, the formeron
Court street and the latter on Market,
by sixty-five feet wide. It, was bought
jby Mr. John A. Bullard, a Boston capi
talist, WOO promptly presented his check
' lor twenty per cent, of the amount. It
I was supposed that a local combination
had been formed which would secure
the courthouse. It is said that Mr. Bul
lard has given these gentlemen a ninety
j days option on his bargain, conditioned
i upon an advance of $10,000. The county
' originally paid $30,000 for the property,
j has used it for years, and has certainly
j made by the operation. It is of course a
i question as to whether $100,500 was a
j good price for the courthouse, irrespec-
I tive of the county's luck with its
, purchase. That was certainly not
a boom price. On the other hand,
it shows great vitality in Los
Angeles real estate. A larger price
could probably have been secured dur
ing the boom; but, as times have been,
!itis a fair sale. Mr. Bullard has made
a bargain. He is a Boston millionaire
j who came here a year ago and bought a
I lot of property. He evidently thinks
that this is a good place in which to in
vest money, and his head is as-level as
j a carpenter's plumb. With four fronts
and a high building, this ought to be a
very remunerative investment.
Tn k reports of the clearing houses this
week show a great improvement over
those of some weeks past. The hack of
the panic has undoubtedly been broken.
Panic may be too strong a word to use
in this connection, but we are inclined
to think that it is a very fitting one, and
that it rose even to international magni
tude. Its etfect on business in the
United States was disastrous in the ex
treme. The failure of Baring Bros, and
the serious embarrassment of the Bank
of Knglaml caused several hundred mil
lions of dollars' worth of American secu
rities to be dumped on our Bhores. As
these have been picked up at a cheap
rate by Gould, Vanderbilt, and the rest
of that, ilk, these gentlemen will now in
all likelihood stand aside and allow val
ues to regain their eld level. This will
also result in some of the coin which
was dispatched to New York from Cali
fornia, to get the high rates of interest
prevailing there, to get back to its right
ful office of developing this state.
The Southern Pacific, railway has con
cluded to make a number of substan
tial improvements on its line in the city
of Los Angeles. The wooden bridges
over the Los Angeles river at the en
trance to the city and at the Yuma cross
ing will be replaced immediately by iron
structures. These will be raised two or
three feet, so as to give the river a freer
passage in seasons of floods.
A number of wealthy Englishmen,
who have property interests to the
southward of Santa Monica, are aboutto
construct a railway from Ballonn harhnr
to the city by the sea. The contracts
for«the work have already been let to
Captain Duncan, of Jiedondo Beach. It
is also in contemplation to extend this
road to the soldiers' home. This might
not be a paying venture just now, but it
is bound to become so when the im
provements projected about this institu
tion have been completed.
FLOYD'S LITTLE GUN
CAUSED HAWTHORNE TO SUD
DENLY CHANGE HIS MIND.
So He Did Not Rob Station A of the Post
office—How He Attempted to Make a
About 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Captain McKeag, of the East Side police
force, was informed that a desperate at
tempt to rob the postoffiee at Station A,
on the corner of Downey and Griffin
avenues, had been made a few minutes
earlier by a youth named Charles Haw
thorne. McKeag at once telephoned to
police headquarters and the main office,
with the result that Hawthorne was ar
rested on Spring street at 8:15 o'clock
last night by Officer Merry, and was
locked up in the city jail.
Enquiry at Station A elicited the in
formation that at 4:80 o'clock yesterday
afternoon Hawthorne, who was for some
time a mail-carrier in that district,called
at the office, and addressing the clerk in
charge, C. W. Floyd, asked for some
papers belonging to him, which were ly
ing on a desk inside. Floyd, being very
busily engaged at that moment, told
Haw thorne to step into the office and get
them himself. Hawthorne entered the
office and, marching ur> to the desk at
which Floyd was sitting, presented a
pistol to the astonished clerk's head and
commanded him to close his general
delivery window, at the same time
remarking that he was desperate. Floyd
obeyed the command, but at that mo
ment two men came to the window, and
Hawthorne, pocketing his pistol, said:
"I'll drop this where it is, if you will."
Instead of acquiescing, Floyd drew his
pistol and ordered Hawthorne to leave
the office, which he did in short order.
The police were then notified, with the
result as above stated.
Hawthorne, when interviewed at the
police station, denied the whole story,
and gave another version of the affair.
He stated that he was indebted to Floyd
for a small loan, and in addition owed
his father about $60. He called
at the postoffiee to get some papers, and
seeing Floyd at the window, asked him
for them, but was told to come in and
get them for himself. He did so, and
Floyd demanded the money he owed
him. He was unable to pay the debt,
and told Floyd bo, whereupon the irate
clerk drew a pistol and chased him out
of the office.
Haw thorne was discharged from the
government employ about six months
ago, on account of his having attempted
to extort money from an old man
named Pollard, under the guise of a
deputy constable. Since that time he
has been in the employ of the Southern
Pacific railroad company as a fireman,
but recently left the company's service.
Begun on an Extensive Scale by Cap
For years past, and especially around
the holidays, there has been a vast
amount of eastern poultry shipped to
this city. This is about to be done
away with, and the many dollars that
Los Angeles has sent away to the east
ern cities in the past, will remain at
home, and the Los Angeles poultry mar
kets will present much better looking
stock in the future. This will all be due
to the business sagacity of Captain Alex
ander H. Anderson, a wealthy and enter
prising young Englishman who resides
about ten miles from Los An
geles, in the beautiful San
Gabriel valley. Captain Anderson
recently bought an extensive ranch
about "two miles from his home resi
dence, which he has had prepared in an
elaborate manner for the exclusive pur
pose of raising chickens, turkeys, ducks,
geese and eggs for the market. The
ranch has already been exte nß i v ely
stocked, and the work of supplying the
market actively begun. There a re thir
teen of the latest improved inc übatorsubators ;
the largest one, the Monarch, holds six
hundred eggs. The Eureka incubator,
which is also used, has a c l oc k attached,
which turns the eggs every six hours.
In the incubating roo ms , the devices for
carrying of the vitiated air are so per
fect that it is impossible to detect the
least disagreeable odor.
The brooder or house where the chicks
are kept, is Under the supervision of
Edwin Wadey, and is (10 feet wide by
100 feet deep. The necessary temperv
ture here is kept by means of hot water,
which is pumped through pipe laid
along under the domiciles of the little
ones, and which can be regulated to
any temperature. Mr. Handyside, fore
man of the ranch, stated to the Hkrai.d
reporter that they were about to build
two more brooders. He estimated that
90 per cent of the eggs in the in
cubators turned out all right. There
are at present on the ranch
CSO Pekin ducks, from 400 to 500
chickens, and about a like number
of turkeys. At present they are hatch
ing upwarJs of 1300 eggs per month, and
when the new improvements are com
pleted this number will lie correspond
ingly increased. After a further inspec
tion of this colossal enternrise, the
reporter was invited to inspect the
home residence of Captain Anderson.
This was reached after a short ride, in
which there was a little divertisement
in the shape of Win. Lovell. one of the
Rccompanvine party, who was very gra
ciously slipped over his horse's head,
the animal having stepped in a hole.
Captain Anderson's residence is one
of the most beautiful of country
homes and is surrounded by a fine
orange orchard of forty acres. The
stables in the rear contain thirteen
thoroughbred animals. The captain's
dog kennel is also one of the striking
features of the place. Thiß contains
fifty-two dogs, and some of the best
bred dogs in the world are to be seen
here. The St. Rernards and English
mastiffs are indeed fine looking animals,
and the captain has refused many a
tempting offer for some of them.
Heart disease is usually supposed to be incur
able, but when properly treated a large propor
tion ofee«cscan be cured. Thus Mrs. Elmira
Hatch, of Elkhart, Ind., and Mrs. Mary L.
Bake', of Ovid, Mich., were cured after suffer
ing 20 yea's. S, O. Linburger. drucgist at San
Jose, 111., says that Dr. Miles's HeartCure.whlch
cured the former, "worked wonders for bis
wife." Levi Logan, of Buchanan, Mich , who
had heart disease for 30 years, says two bottles
made him "feel like a new man." Dr. Miles's
