SUNDAY, DEC. 28, 1873.
The DAILY HERALD has
nearly DOUBLE the Circu
lation of either contempo
rary paper published in Los
Angeles. As an advertising
medium it is consequently of
DOUBLE their value.
A Plea for Light.
The city of Los Angeles is supplied
with gas works and yet the streets are
unlighted. The benighted pedestrian
must feel his way about town, by the
aid of a bull's-eye lantern, or rim the
risk of breaking his neck over our un
even grades, in total darkness. Nu
merous buildings in the city are light
ed without the aid of the Gas Compa
uy. Some have gas machines and
manufacture their own gws. Others
resort to coal oil lamps, and as many as
possibly can, avoid patronizing an in
stitution that is ordinarily supposed
lo be a great public convenience. That
i here is some reason for this is evi
dent. Our people are neither penuri
ous, nor old fogies, a id the fact that
we are practically on exhibition all
the time, being visited by thousands
of people from the Eastern States,
makes them the more anxious that
the city should put its best foot fore
most The explanation simply is,
that the quality of the gas is so bad,
and the price so exorbitant, that no
one will use it who can help doing so,
and the city authorities do net feel
justified in incurring the expense, even
for a matter so important as lighting
the streets. Some years ago the Com
mon Council of this ring-ridden city,
granted to one of its favorites the exclu
sive right for twenty years to erect
gas works and lay pipes in the streets.
No stipulations as to price or quality
were made, but the citizens of Los
Angeles for a score of years were
turned over to a soulless monopo
ly, to be bled to the extent of
their ability to stand the drain. The
result is easily guessed. The gas, man
ufactured from all manner of garbage
is miserable stuff and it is sold at an
exorbitant price. It smells like a de
cayed skunk, and the room where it
is used is all the time filled with a
dense smoke, injurious to the lungs,
and ruinous to the eyes. For this
abominable stuff, our citizens are ob
liged to pay $7 50 per thousand, twice
as much in fact as good gas could be
sold for, and three times what it costs
to manufacture a good article with a
small gas machine.
If we wish to have our city lighted,
we must pay SO per month for each
lump or $72 per annum. The people
of Sacramento are growling because a
contract has been made at $3 50 per
month, and almost anywhere the lat
ter sum would be thought ample pay
tor lighting the streets with a good
quality of gas, manufactured from coal.
We see no means of escaping this out
rageous tax, short of breaking up the
monopoly. We must either put up
with the exactions of the gas company
for thirteen years, or by a united ef
fort, either overthrow it or bring it to
terms. It is the opinion of eminent
lawyers, several of whom have held
high judicial positions, and are there
fore well qualified to judge, that there
is no foundation in equity for this
monopoly. They hold that the City
('ouncil had no right or authority to
grant such exclusive privileges as
were given to this company to the
manifest injury ofthe public, and it is
their belief that the Courts will refuse
to sustain such an invasion of the
people's rights. If a single indi
vidual, however, undertakes the
task of fighting this monopoly.
It is a matter that the whole
community is interested in, and the
joint efforts of all citizens should be di
rected to the accomplishment of the
needed reform. Not only have we a
right to complain of the quality and
price of the gas, but the location of the
works is in itself a nuisance that calls
loudly for abatement. They are right
in the centre of the city, within a
stone's throw of our principal hotel,
and surrounded by handsome resi
dences. Even if the gas were ma tie
from decent materials it would be in
tolerable, but when the grounds are
made the store-house of rotten grape
pomice, and all manner of filth and
garbage, it is simply astonishing that
the people will put up with the con
tinued presence of the nuisance. The
depreciation of property occasioned by
the presence of the gas-works is itself
a serious matter, and we see neither
reason or justice in allowing it to re
main. The attention of all well-wish
ers of our city is called to this ques
tion. Our columns are open to a tem
perate discussion of the subject, wheth
er the views expressed agree with our
own or not, and no one need complain
that he cannot be heard.
Tukkk are some people who are
never satisfied unless they can have
their own way. The Erpretm has un
dertaken to fight Gen. Manning's bat
tles, and to defend his wharf through
thick and thin. Hence it is no more
than was expected, that it should
throw cold water on the proposition
to build a road to Santa Monies. It
knows very well that this project
is receiving the attention of practical
men, and that it is thought by those
who are in a positiou to know best
that it offers by far the cheapest and
quickest way out of our difficulty.
But then the building of such an im
provement would be the death of
lighterage, and Banning's proposed
wharf, so of course we find the Express
is on the side of monopoly, and against
the people. The sunken rocks at
Santa Moriica, are fabricated off of the
same piece as the Express's seven feet
of water at Wilmington at extreme
Appointment of Cushing.
The appointmentrof Caleb Cushing
as Minister of Spain i* one of there
deeming features in Gen. Grant's ad
ministration, that occasionally Hash
to the surface, only to exasperate us
that they arc so Infrequent. No other
man in the United States is so well
fitted by nature and education, for
the delicate and important work
of conducting our relations with
that country, and no one that
could have been selected would be apt
to manage affairs at Madrid with less
reference to the effect of his position
on political matters at home. Cush
ing is a veteran diplomat, and unlike
many of our foreign ministers is an
educated, polished man. He will fill
the position of minister with much
more dignity and ability than Sickles,
who, however well he was adapted to
tlie field, was certainly not a success
as a diplomatist,
During the year 1872, a little over
7,500,000 feet of lumber was received in
this city, and for the year just coming
to a close the amount will reach, if it
does not exceed 10,000,000 feet. As our
city increases in size, and the country
surrounding it is settled up, the con
sumption of lumber will be greatly
augmented. To reduce the cost of this
indispensable article, and thus facili
tate tlie development of the country is
a matter of importance to every body.
Lumber is cheap in Oregon, but dear
in Los Angeles. The expense of get
ting it here is Miiat counts, and a
Jarge portion of this expense is occa
sioned by the necessity for lighterage,
at Wilmington. The freight from the
anchorage to Los Angeles is $7 per
thousand, at least $4 of which is for
lighterage. On the lumber received
here during laf 3, this will amount to
$40,000, a very respectable tax to pay
in one year on a single article.
The Products of Los Angeles
Though far from the most populous
county in the State, ranking the
seventh, Los Angeles produces more
corn, peanuts, beans, castor beans,
onions, tobacco, wool, honey and
wine than any other county in the
State. It has more grape vines, orange
trees, lemon trees, and more horses,
mules and sheep. In tobacco it stands
alone, producing 25,000 pounds. Of
wine ii produces double what any
other county does. For a county of
only 19,000 inhabitants its products are
tremendous, and they are only begin
ning to show themselves. The pro
gress In the past three years has been
very rapid, and yet our resources are
only beginning to attract attention.
Thk story of a man who was so trans
formed by sickness that his wife didn't
recognize him, on his return from a
six months' absence is floating through
the papers, and a great marvel is made
of it. We see nothing strange in the
occurrence. We have known a man
tojust step down street "to see a friend"
and after only a few hours' absence,
return in such a condition that even
his do r wouldn't acknowledge him.
A vekv handsome office for the use

A little over a year more, and the
100 th anniversary of the Battle of
Hunker Hill will take place. A little
band of heroes, then inaugurated a
struggle, which brought untold results.
It is very littinp that their deeds should
be commemorated. The nation at
large is very justly arranging for a
celebration on an extensive scale, of
the centennial anniversary of tills
event. Tb.ilwill instil patriotic impulse
into tlie souls of those of the coming
generations, and prepares them for the
struggles, which they, in life, must
undergo. Overhanging Los Angeles
is a hill similar to Bunker Hill—nay,
it is larger. From it all the city can
be seen and the country for miles
around. On this hill also, are military
marks, the remnants of a fort, which
was built for the protection of liberty
In this State. This hill lias an ave
nue running along its crest, and our
friend Beaudry, through whose in
fluence chiefly it lias been opened, has
very appropriately named it Bunker
Hill avenue. The City Surveyor lias
been ordered to define the grades and
lines of Olive, Cliarity.and Bunker Hill
avenue, from Hill to. Hope; Second
street, and Temple street, from Hill
to Hope. This will bring these lands
Within easy reach ofthe business part

Mr. Beaudry being tlie owner, by
perfect and indisputable title, otters
the following scheme, believing that
it supplies a felt want.
His various tracts have been sur
veyed, and platted in lots of conveni
ent size for residences, upwards of two
hundred in number, and the maps, to
gether with abstracts of title, are kept
for publif inspection at his office, op
posite the Pico House.
Any person desiring to purchase can
inspect the land, select his lot or lots,
and acqiire the same, if not previously
taken up by another, upon the follow
ing terras:' Purchasers not being re
stricted to a single lot.
The purchaser or his successor to
pay the fixed price of the lands selected
by him, in equal monthly install
ments, as follows: On lots valued at
$400 and upwards, but not to ex
coed $500, Sls per month; on those
valued at $300 aud upwards, anil less
than $400, $10 per month. Pay
ments in gold or currency, and no In
terest demanded, For cash in hand a
reduction of fifteen per cent, will be
The purchaser to have immediate
possession upon payment of the first
installment and on execution and de
livery of contract.
The right of the purchasers may be
assignable by him, and his assigns to
succeed to all his privileges and lia
bilities; standing in all respects to
wards the vendor as an original obligor.
Purchasers shall not be restricted to
the payment of the installments as
above shown, but may make pay
ments in advance, and on all such
payments he will allow one per cent,
per month, from the date of payment
until said payment would become due.
Upon selection of a lot or lots by a
purchaser, and payment of the first in
stallment with five dollars, in U. S.
gold coin, as expenses on the docu
ment, Mr. Beaudry with the pur
chaser, will execute and acknowledge
a sealed agreement, embodying the
above conditions; and, upon full pay
ment, according thereto, the under
signed will execute and deliver to the
purchaser, or lawful representa
tives, on demand, a good and sufficient
and absolute deed of conveyance of
the contracted lands, in form of war
ranty against grantor, the grantee
paying the cost of such deed.
These proposals will be kept open
until the 12th day of February, 1874.
The location is very desirable. All
that has heretofore been lacking is
water, and that want is now fulfilled.
Anywhere else, in as desirable loca
t ion, lots readily command from $500 to
$1,000 and even higher rates. This
property is put at the astonishing low
price of from $300 to $400. But this is
not all. This may be paid in currency
and a reduction of fifteen per cent will
be made for cash in hand.
