THE BUG FIGHTERS.
A DEFENSE OF THE HORTICUL
The Secretary States the Scale Bug
Proposition From the Commissioners
Point of View.
The following communication will be
of interest to fruit raisers:
Pomona, Cal., Dec. 29,1890.
Editors Herald :—So far as my expe
rience goes you have always shown a
spirit of fairness ; will you therefore hear
once more the other side? In th 3
AVeekly Herald of Dec. 27th, you have
an editorial article under the caption of
Scale Bugs and their Parasites. I will
start, if you please, in my answer with
the statement that the horticultural
commission of this county are really
working hard to be of benefit to the
fruit growers of the county. The men
now composing thecommissionare prac
tical horticulturists, with experience in
their business of from 18 to 20 years.
The writer is youngest in experience,
having been an inspector under Mathew
Cook in 1877 or '78. You; newspaper
men can hardly realize how much fac
tious opposition we meet with in our
efforts to persuade people to clean and
care for their orchards. The position of
commissioner or inspector is not an en
viable one, or one that a good man cares
to take. We are not on the popular
side. The press, naturally enough per
haps, is on that side. We realize the j
great importance to us in our
work of the cordial support of the
press. We try to deserve it and hope
you will feel justified, on the part of the
Heuald, in giving it to us. You are '
certainly mistaken when you say that
we questioned your theory about para- ]
sites, and fought that theory or laughed
at it. Our records show that we have
always acknowledged the beneficial
work done by parasites. National,
state and county boards of horticulture
all aided in introducing the Vedolla
Cardinalis, the only really effective par
asite we have ever had. What we have
combatted with all our might has been I
the surprising deduction made from the [
parasite theory, that certain parasites
weie cleaning our orchards as the vedo- |
lia has done, and that further work on
the part of orchardists in the way of
fighting pests was not needed.
Whether the press intended this
idea to be accepted or not, the
fact is that it has been accepted by very
many of our orange growers, and the ;
preps ia lartrclv veeponeible Eov tliat iac.t. J

The organizing committee reported
Laving been engaged in organizing the
barbers, with good prospects of success.
A delegate from the barbers stated that
the union intended to adopt a badge,
and asked that the council give its sup
port to the members. This was unani
mously voted, and the delegates in
structed to inform their respective
unions of the fact.
Reports from the unions showed trade
rather quiet. The delegate from the
Bakers' union complained of the dis
crimination exercised by one establish
ment against union bakers. The ex
ecutive committee was instructed to in
vestigate the complaint, and report at
the next meeting.
The nominations for officers were
opened and an election ordered, which
resulted as follows: President, D. O.
Freeman; vice-president, B; Larger!;
recording secretary, P. R. Bellman;

Some discussion was held upon the
advisability of urging the Pacific Coast
council to call a meeting of all the sub
federations of California for the purpose
of forming a state federation ot labor.
Action was deferred until the next
An Organization Formed and Tempo
rary Officers Elected.
Pursuant to the call of the Los Angeles
Council of Labor, some thirty barbers
assembled at 1 West First street last
evening. This was the second meeting
held by the Los Angeles barbers, and
was first addressed by the committee
appointed at the previous meeting.
After some discussion by members of the
council and by a couple of members
from the Denver Barbers' union, a mo
tion was carried to proceed to tempo
rarily organize. Charles Hetz was
elected temporary president, and V. de
Vezino secretary. The charter roll was
then opened, and was signed by all jour
neymen barbers present. The secretary
was instructed to write to St. Paul for a
charter and working paraphernalia. A
committee on constitution and by-laws
was then appointed, with instructions to
report on next Tuesday night. The
union intends to adopt a badge to be
worn by all members. The council of
labor has promised to recognize and sup
port this badge.
PITCHERS KNELL AND CARSEY
The Make-Up of the Nines to Play
The baseball enthusiasts were elated
yesterday when they read the announce
ment in the HEBALD that there would
be a series of games played at the
Temple-street grounds, beginning to
morrow afternoon. The seating accom
modation is all that can be desired, but
the grounds are not nearly as large as
they should be. However, with such
crack twirlers as Knell and Carsey in the
box, hits will be few and far between.
The nines will be made up as follows for
the game on New Year's day :
San Francisco: Knell, p; Stevens, c ;
Dooley, 1 b; McDonald 2 b; Wilson,
3 b; Ebright, ss; Sweeny, c f; O'Day,
rf; Rube Levy, If.
Los Angeles: Carsey, p; Lohman,
c; Stapleton, 1 b; Fogarty, 2 b; Brit
tan, 3 b; Reitz, 88; Holliday, c f;
Isaacson, rf; Young or Goldie, if.
Sheridan, the well-known profes
sional, will umpire the game, which
will be called at 2:30 sharp.

MARSH'S QUICK WORK.
HE CAPTURES A POSTOFFICE ROB
BER IN SHORT ORDER.
A Burglar Who Only Got Dimes and
Nickels—He Comes to Los Angeles and
Walks into Deputy Marshal Marsh's
Quite a slick capture was made yester
day by deputy United States Marshal
Marsh and Constable Mayes of Lan
caster. On Monday night the postoffiee
at Lancaster was robbed. An entrance
was effected from the rear. Constable
Mayes was the first one to discover that
the crime had been committed and at
once commenced to work on the case.
Portmaster Holland upon investigation
found that only about ten dollars in
dimes and nickels had been stolen. Ad
joining the postoffiee is a printing oflice.
W. Mugarrieta, a type-setter employed
on the Lancaster paper, had been seen
prowling around the building, and sus
picion at once pointed to him as the
burglar. The rear door had been pried
open with a bar of iron used in a print
A search was made for Mugarrieta,
but he could not be found in Lancaster.
It was subsequently learned that he had
beaten his way down to Los Angeles on
a freight train. Constable Mayes tele
graphed a description of the missing
printer to Marshal Gard and Deputy
Marshal Marsh was put on the case.
He kept a sharp lookout for Mugarrieta.
Later in the day word reached Marsh
that Mugarrieta had sentdown a valise
by express. The officers waited at
Wells-Fargo, ani at precisely 4:iJoin
stepped the man they wanted. He was
placed under arrest und was escoiied to
It appears that on Monday Mugar
rieta heard the postmaster remark that
he had about $200 on hand, but the
money was removed to a safe place
that afternoon, > consequently the ac
cused did not make such a big haul a :
he had anticipated.

The chamber exhibit hall will be open

The secretary of the chamber of com
merce received a letter from Major Tru
man yesterday, dated December 23d, in
which he says:
''Californiaon Wheels arrived here on
the 21st, and will stay here until the

back to my exhibit and picked him out
some apples and olives from San Diego
county, some lemons and orange juice, a
cotton stalk and a grape vine from Los
Angeles, some dried fruits, rasins,apples

A Good Sale.

A Fatal Mistake.
Physician! make no more fatal mistake than
when they inform patients that nervous heart
troubles come from the stomach and are of
little consequence. Dr. Franklin Miles, the
noted Indiana specin list, has proven the contrary
in his new hook on "Heart Disease." which
may be had free at K. W. Ellis & Co.,
who guarantees and recommends Dr. Miles Uh
equaled New Heart Cure, which has the largest
sale of any heart remedy in the world. It cures
nervous and organic heart disease, short breath,
fluttering, pain or tenderness in the side, arm
or shoulder, irregular pulse, fainting, smother
ing, dropsy, etc. His Restorative Nervine cures
headache, fits, etc.
