HOW IT SEEMS TO A STRANGER.
Editor Herald:—Having mtely
arrived on the Pacific Coast, I congrat
ulated myself on reaching Los An
geles in time for your District Pair,
deeming it the best opportunity 1
should have for securing reliable in
formation concerning the productions
of Southern California. On examin
ing the programme as published in the
city papers, I found much about
horse-racing, but very little of farm
products, and the programme was
faithfully carried out. There whs
horse-racing everyday; but the mag
nificent fruits, the mammoth vege
tables, the fine grains and the succu
lent grasses, which we in the east
hear so much of, were not there.
Pool-selling, betting on this horse or
that, and speculations In regard to the
winner, was all I could hear. Ou the
streets, in hotels, at the ground, every
body, men, women and children were
talking of the races, and all this ex
citement and interest was occasioned
by trials of speed between horses that
could barely make their mile in a
trifle under three minutes. Naturally
one infers that the exhibition given
by an Agricultural Society will to
some extent represent the condition
of the industries of the country; and
when I found that the agricultural
and industrial departments were
meagre and inferior in the extreme,
while gambling was largely develop
ed, the first hasty conclusion was that
the people of Southern California were
more interested in the scrub horse
races than in the cultivation of the
soil. An examination of the manner
in which the Fair was conducted, led
me to think that possibly the people
were not to blame for the character
of the exhibition, and that they had
simply erred iv mistaking the annual
meeting of a lot of horse jockeys for
an agricultural jubilee. For instance:
there was a greater sum given as
a purse for a scrub race, than was paid
in premiums for the entire products of
the farms, orchards, vineyards, work
shops ami manufacturies of a half a
dozen counties. After thinking the
matter over, I concluded not to send the
city papers containing reports of the
Fair to my friends at the east, fearing
that a wrong impression might be con
veyed. And now, if you will allow a
stranger the liberty, 1 suggest that if
the people of Los Angeles wish their
Fair to amount to anything they
must take the management in their
own hands instead of prostituting it to
the petty knavery of the race course,
and devote their energies to building up
and developing the great agricultural
and mineral resources of your section
of the State. If proper inducements
are offered, there will be no difficulty
In bringing together a creditable dis
play of the products of the county, and
such a display will be of infinitely
more value to you as a community
than all the horse-racing that can be
crowded into a week. Such an exhi
bition will be a better and cheaper ad
vertisement of your resources than
any other you can devise, and it will
in a very few years cause a marked
improvement in the quality of your
flocks and herds, and an ever increas
ing interest in the noble pursuit of
