of the Heralp of special attractions, and

SOMETHING ABOUT THE SAN GABRIEL
VALLEY—THE SANTA ANITA TO
Now that the San Gabriel valley is
emerging from the state of gloom into
which it was plunged "by the scale bug
and the vine pest, it is an interesting in
quiry as to what caused these scourges
to have such an unlimited sway for a
time. As to the vine pest, there has
been as yet no reasonably clear theory
of either its nature or origin. This is
not so in the case of the orange.
The San Gabriel valley is naturally
one of the most productive regions in
Southern California. Orange culture
there gave the most satisfactory and re
munerative results ever recorded in the
state up till the advent of Riverside.
The old Sunny Slope, San Marino, and
other orchards, were the pride of
California, and people came from
far and near to see them. The writer
heard Hon. Thomas A. Hendricks tell Mr.
L. J. Rose that the Sun ny Slope orchard
Was the tinest he had seen in all his
travels, and Mr. Hendricks had then
just returned from an extended Euro
It is a curious circumstance that the
scale-bug got in its most disastrous work
during the progress of the boom. That
episode meant the neglect of at least
some of the orchards, and it was prob
ably in these neglected groves that the
scale-bug was propagated most disas
trously, spreading in all directions, like
an epidemic amongst animals. This
was undoubtedly one principal cause of
the ravages of these parasites. A sec
ond cause of deterioration has been dis
closed in the experience of the orange
growers of Riverside. They found that
the orange tree needed plant food,
especially when it was required to bear
a heavy crop. The orchardists of the
San Gabriel valley nresumed too much
on the natural fertility of the soil. In
stead of applying nitrates and other fer
tilizers to a soil exhausted ot" its origimtl
fecundity by years of production, ttnQ
allowed their trees to languish
and become the easy prey of any
enemy. Still another cause of the dam
age to the orange groves of the San
Gabriel valley was the practice of
ploughing close to the tree, thus tearing
up the suckers and fibers from which
the tree, which is a surface feeder, re
ceives most of its nourishment.
Dismissing the inquiry into the
causes of the suspended prosperity of
the San Gabriel valley, it is pleasant to
know that that lovely region is on the
up grade again, and that intelligent
movements are under way that will
lead to a splendid revival there. Mr. E.
J. Baldwin is about to place several
thousand acres of the Santa Anita ranch
on the market, and on very liberal terms
to the buyer. Lands in the Puente, the
San Francisquito, the San Felipe Lugo,
and other rich and attractive ranchos,
can be bought on very easy terms, and
at prices that are more than moderate.
The opening up of these attractive re
gions cannot fail to be followed by a
large and desirable settlement. The
cultivation of the orange is an easy and
charming pursuit. Ten acres of good
orange land make the foundation of a
competency. Mr. E. J. Baldwin is
authority for the statement that a man
could aiFord to pay $1000 an acre for
orange land, plant it in budded fruit
and set fire to it at the end of ten years,
and he would make a handsome income
on his investment, though obliged to
replant at the end of that time. Mr.
Baldwin ought certainly to be an author
ity on this matter. He is showing his
faith by his works, and his young and
beautiful plantations form a grateful
contrast to his splendid old orange
It is to be hoped that Mr. Baldwin's
example will be imitated on all hands.
There is no more attractive place for
sett lenient in the world than the San
San Gabriel valley. From end to end
it is is beautiful as it is productive.
Lands can be bought there now for one
third what they would have readily
commanded during the "boom," and
the acreage property was worth every
cent that was asked for it then. The man
who buys now, will find that, at
the end of five years, if he seta out the
right kind of stock, he will have a com
petency, as well as a poetical home.
But the orange is by no means the
only valuable staple that will flourish
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 30, 1890.
in the San Gabriel valley. The finest
English walnut trees in Los Angeles
county are to be found in the bottom
lands of the rancho San Felipe Lugo.
A truck gardener who would drain and
cultivate these lands would make a for
tune in a very short time. They would
yield incredible quantities of all kinds
Those who are tempted eastward by
the inviting prospects to be found in
Pomona and San Bernardino and inter
mediate places, would do well to halt
long enough to take count of the bar
gains which are at his command in the
San Gabriel valley. Meanwhile, Mr. E.
J. Baldwin should hurry forward his
work of subdividing the Santa Anita
and the other valuable ranchos which
he possesses. The public are ready to
buy these lands as fast as they are
mapped and platted.
A PECULIAR PROCESS OF DISINTEGRA
Undoubtedly the most striking thing
in the political developments of the day
is the independent attitude which has
been assumed by the western Republi
can leaders. Such broad gauge men as
Wm. M. Stewart and John P. Jones of
Nevada have nothing in common with
such finicky pseudostatesmen as George
Frisbie Hoar, Wm. F. Frye, John Cabot
Lodge, and other dilettanti old grand
mothers. The last individual is a young
man, and ought to have more sense.
Senator Stewart has shown his disre
gard of the party lash on two memorable
occasions. The first time was when he
voted for theconfirmationof Senator La
mar as a justice of the supreme court of
the United States. The second was of re
cent occurrence, when he got up in his
place and denounced the force
bill in the terms it so richly
deserved. It is a gratifying thing
to note that all the Pacilic
coast Republican senators are disposed
to buck at this kind of legislation. The
old race of virile Republican politicians
sent to both houses of con
gress from New England and the north
generally is being rapidly replaced by a
lot of scholastic Miss Nancys, of whom
John Cabot Lodge is a bright exemplar.
The attempt to again convert the states
of the south into satrapies will not be
without good. It will kill politically all
the feeble-forcible public functionaries,
from Harrison down, who have been en
gaged in it. In line with the reflections
begotten of this matter, it is worthy of
notice that Mr. James G. Blame is, in a
quite remarkable manner, at variance
with the administration ef which he is
the nominal head. He waa opposed to
the McKinley bill, he is opposed to the
force bill, and the only thing he
seems to favor is a sort of vague
and general reciprocity with the
South and Central American re
publics. One i 3 almost tempted to
forget the Mulligan letters in one's ad
miration at Blame's determined stand
against the original force bill, which he
defeated by a ruling, which Reed has
reversed, that members present and not
voting should no' be counted. Alto
gether the grand old party is in a bad
way. The brains of that organization
are drifting away from it, and the brawny
manhood of thenationare following suit.
When an old dodderer, like Hoar, and a
curled exquisite, like Lodge, reinforced
by a big bully, like Reed, with a big
gavel and an inordinately big conceit
of himself, are all that are left of
the Republican party from the east,
with li'.tle Benny thrown in as a trilling
makeweight, it is high time that such
people as Jones, and Stewart, and Pad
dock, and Teller, and a dozen others,
should look out for some place to land.
They certainly cannot abide such lead
ership, and they have shown that they
will not. Meanwhile Lodge can go on
parting his hair in the middle and
mouthing pretty phrases, and the party
can keep on going to the demnition bow
wows, with no return ticket and no
public regrets audibly expressed at
their cngulfment in political chaos.
On the principle of discovering some
thing good in things that are evil on
their face, it is just possible that the
railway combine may not be of un
mixed injury to the business public. In
the lirst place, it will put all merchants
on an equal footing. If there have been,
as reported in quarters that smack of
authority, rebates and discriminations,
these can scarcely be maintained in
view of such a combination. Uniform
rates will probably be insisted upon,
even if they should be somewhat higher
than those in vogue hitherto. Most
business men will find this a welcome
change. Meanwhile, the reasons that
enforce moderation on all intelligent cor
porations, in both passenger and freight
charges, will lose none of their force.
That more money can be made on low
than on high schedules the Canadian
Pacific railway is daily proving. That
road is walking all around its American
rivals, and people travel thousands of
miles by steamers and sailing vessels to
reach its shelter of low fares across the
The part that news\ •, men play in
public alfaira and in _ lance in the
United States is often overlooked.
Many of the Napoleons of Wall street
! have been knights of the quill. Jay
Gould began his career by issuing a
publication like the Illustrates Her
ald, although, of course, not comparing
lin merit with that artistic work. He
was a writer before he became a finan
cier. Henry Villard first attracted at
tention by his good reportorial work on
the Omaha Bee. Few people know that
before old Simon Cameron became an
Indian agent and afterwards a banker
and a millionaire he was for years first
a hard-working printer and afterwards
an editor. In fact, it requires a great
deal of ingenuity on the part of a news
paper man to prevent his becoming a
millionaire. The history of the late
Tribune, of this city, proves this fact
At last there has been a real engagement
between the troops and the young bucks
of Big Foot's band. The loss of life was
considerable, although not of the pro
portions of a disaster. The action oc
curred in the Bad Lands, South Dakota.
As General Miles says, this complicates
matters. The full details of the affair
will be found in our telegraphic report,
That portion of Second street between
Sprint: and Broadway is just now in a
very disrupted condition. A specula
tive individual has bought the old cable
railway plant, including cables, rails and
paraphernalia generally, and part of his
contract involves the filling up of the
big hole made in removing the materia!
and presenting the city with a passable
street. The proper authorities should
see that this is done in a workmanlike
manner. Those who have had occasion
to use Second street for a long time past
have been bedeviled enough already, in
all conscience. They should not be
subjected to additional annoyance.
Capt. Barrett says that as soon as the
newly made portion of Second street
settles after the winter rains his Electric
Belt railway w ill begin to lay track out
Second street. It is to be hoped that
this may be so. The long suffering peo
ple of that thoroughfare are entitled to
relief from some quarter.
The report of the grand jury is a very
voluminous document, and a synopsis
of it will be found in our local columns.
It is full of recommendations, and its
preparation shows praiseworthy labor
upon the part of its compiler. As it
would fill about six columns of the
HERALD in small type our readers would
probably prefer to take it boiled down.
The Flying Dutchman at the Grand
The Juch opera company gave Wag
ner's Flying Dutchman last night before
a fair audience, at the Grand. The per
formance was nothing like the produc
tion of Faust, or Lohengrin by the same
company last week. In answer to a
possible adverse criticism on Wagner's
composition, it may be said that The
Dutchman is hardly a distinctively Wag
ner opera. It is like Rienzi, one of his
earliest productions. In Rienzi the
Wagner idea appears in its first ele
mentary forms, and in the Dutchman
this idea is only a little advanced. In
Lohengrin and Tannhauser the idea is
well wrought out, and reaches its high
est state of development in the Twilight
of the Gods and in Parsiphol.
The staging oi The Dutchman last
night was very fine, the marine scenes,
with their scudding clouds-, being excel
lent. The first act is composed mostly
of rather tiresome recitative, and the
songs in it fall to the part of the bari
tone largely, and the Flying Dutchman,
being sung by Mr. Rathjens, who was
very hoarse, that role was unfortunately
marred. Vetta, as the other captain,
has no such scope for his abilities as in
the roles of Mephisto and King Henry.
Payne Clark sang quite acceptably the
part of Erick. Miss Juch, as Senta,
was in all respects most satisfactory. She
failed to elicit the rapturous applause
of other appearances simply because
the role does not call for her best work.
The second act with its famous spin
ning chorus is the best in the opera;
but after all the chorus is made up en
tirely of women's voices, and lacks
depth, force and solidity. The duet at
the end of this act, between Senta and
The Dutchman, aroused the audience to
a'great pitch of enthusiasm, resulting in
bringing the two participants before the

Miss ADELAIDE UOOBE A 8 JULIET,
At tlie Loa Angeles last night a
rather thin house assembled to see Miss
Adelaide Moore and her select company
in Romeo and Juliet. The surfeit
of amusement of the past and
present week, the threatening as
pect of the weather, the great
attraction at the other house
and the fact that Miss Moore is not yet
known here well, all combined to make
the house rathe. thin. The company is
a fairly well selected one, containing
some people who are well trained
Shakesperean artists, some of them
maintaining well the methods of the old
school. Mr. Wheelock is a good Mer
cutio, and Mr e Clement a dashing young
Romeo. Miss Moore was evidently suf
fering from a severe cold, so that she
was very hoarse. She entered into the
impassioned part of the role with great
vigor. The play will be repeated
WHERE IS CHADWICK ?
The Notorious Damron and His Friend
Again Before the Public.
At 10 o'clock yesterday morning, when
the civil suit brought by W. H. Holmes
to recover judgment for $300, against A.
J. Vinton, was called for trial in Justice
Austin's court room, the plaintiffs
attorney asked for a continuance on the
ground of the absence of a material
witness. The defense having announced
its readiness to proceed with the case,
objected to a continuance, but the court
granted the plaintiff's counsel one hour
in which to tile an affidavit in support of
Shortly after 11 o'clock the plaintiff's
affidavit was filed.
In it Mr. Holmes alleged that he
could not safely proceed to trial on ac
count of the absence of J. S. Chadwick,
a material witness, whom he was in
formed by Dr. La Moyne was in Mexico,
but would return within ten days. The
plaintiff swore that he had issued no
subpiena for Chadwick because of the
fact that a bench warrant was out for
A. J. Vinton, tho defendant, filed a
counter affidavit, .in which he swore
that J. M. Damron had himself sworn
in open court that he was interested in
the case; that the said Damron had
taken the affiant Vinton to see Chad
wick at a place where "the said Chad
wick had gone into temporary retire
ment" in the neighborhood of Hiil street,
near Temple, on two occasions, after
bench warrants had been issued for
Chadw'ok, owing to his failure to re
spond to a subpo'na in the case of the
people vs. Damron.
The affiant also alleged that Damron
took Chadwick, in a closed carriage, from
his place of retirement to see E. A.
Gibbs; that the directory did-not dis
close the existence of such a party as
Dr. La Moyne, and affiant did not be
lieve that such a party existed.
I This affidavit and its sensational
charges brought the plaintiff's attorney
!to bis feet. He said that if Chadwick
! was in the city he did not know it; that
j bis claim against Vinton had been
signed over to Holmes by J. M. 1 lamron,
attorney-in-fact, and that Holmes never
had any dealings with Chadwick. The
case w ill be heard again at 9 a. m. to
If "Mr. Chadwick by hfs attorney in
fact, J. M. Damron," assigned to W. H.
Holmes a claim for #3110 after October
25th, he is guilty of perjury, for on that
day he filed a petition in insolvency
with the county clerk, and the inventory
of his assets failed to disclose any claim
against A. J. Vinton.
Then again the record of physicians
kept by the county clerk failed to dis
close any such person practicing medi
cine in the county as Dr. La Moyne,
from whom Holmes in his affidavit
states he received his information that
Chadwick was in Mexico.
