OUR BUSINESS HOUSES.
CHILD*' lIAKDWAHK ESTABLISHMENT.
The large stove, tinware and hard
ware establishment of M. W. Childs
on Los Angeles street presents a busy
scene, und is one well calculated to
give a stranger a favorable idea of the
business of this city. Mr. Childs is
one of our most enterprising mer
chants, as those who remember what
he did at lighting up and decorating*
the rink lust month will freely admit,
and we are glad to record his success.
Looking through his immense stock
we discover that the Richmond porta
ble range is a favorite among house
keepers. This valuable adjunct of the
kitchen is manufactured in Richmond,
Connecticut and is justly famed for its
economy in the use of fuel, and its
great convenience. A large stock of
theft is constantly kept on hand, they
vary in price from thirty-five to two
hundred dols., the smaller ones supply
ing the wants of an ordinary family,
while the larger sizes will accommo
date a restaurant or hotel, We noticed
one very complete, and elaborately
supplied with all the furniture that
could possibly be desired, which had
just been sold for use on a ranch. Mr.
Childs also keeps a full assortment of
all kinds of cooking stoves, prominent
among them the famous Charter Oak,
which has made such a reputation
throughouht the East. The Laurel
Range and the Eureka, are also large
ly represented. Mr. Childs also makes
a sheet iron cook stove that is very con
venient for camping purposes.
Of parlor and heating stoves there
is a large and varied assortment, ele
gant in design and moderate in price.
The stock of tin, copper and sheet
iron ware is not excelled in Southern
California, and a large number of
hands are constantly kept at work pro
ducing it. The heavy copper and iron
work is done at the large shop on Main
street, where the most improved ma
chinery for the manufacture of such
goods, is in operation, and from which
shop large quantities of work is turn
ed out. Artesian well pipe is a special
ty with the shop, and as much as one
thousand joints per month are turned
out. Of shelf hardware, Mr. Childs
keeps a heavy line, and also of glass
ware and crockery; in fact it would be
hard to name an article wanted about
the kitchen or farm that cannot be
found in this ample stock. Agricultur
al implements, such'as plows, harrows,
etc., and farming tools of all kinds,
from the best makers are kept con
stantly In stock. Taken altogether,
from the cursory glance that our
limited time allowed us to take, we
should say that no more complete or
better selected stock of goods can be
found outside of San Francisco. Mr.
Childs is a man who takes pride in
tlie growing business of our county
and section, and his enterptise in con
tributing so largely to the exhibition
given by our Los Angeles Agricultural
Fair, entitles him to the thanks of the
meykr's china store.
Prominent among the business
houses of this city and one that is espe
cially attractive to the ladies, is the
store of Samuel Meyer. Here we find
an assortment of porcelain and glass
ware, and an array of plated ware that
is positively dazzling. In china sets
Mr. Meyer does not intend to be sur
passed. We noticed several beautiful
setH, and on inquiring the price were
astonished at their cheapness. One of
elegant workmanship, and splendid
design, consisting of 160 pieces, is of-
fered for only $90, while a perfect lit
tle gem of a tea-set, just the thing for
a cosy little family, is sold at the very
low price of $15, though it contains 44
In glass-ware the most fastidious
taste as well as the most economical
disposition can be suited. What took
our eye especially was the wine sets,
ranging in price from $5 to $45. Rosy
wine gurgling from such exquisite
bottles into such delicate glasses,
would tempt a New England deacon.
Mr. Meyer is also receiving a very
superior lot of Plated goods from the
Meriden Brittannia Company, of Mer
iden, Conn., and a large and elegant
stock of Gas fixtures from New York.
His stock of Mirrors is large and com
plete, while in lamps and lamp goods
the variety is endless. The com mon
er varieties of earthen-ware and glass
ware are stacked around in lim
itless profusion, and it would be
a singular taste, indeed, that could not
be .satisfied in his store.

Letter from President Orton on the
New York, Dec. 27.
The Times, Tribune and World, pub
lish a very able letter from President
Orton of the Western Union Telegraph
Company, reviewing the Postmaster
General's reccommendation regarding
Postal Telegraphs. These journals
say that Orton entirely tlisposes of the
argument; he shows by statistics that
so far from increasing telegraph facili
ties, government control of the tele
graph must inevitably be more expen
sive than existing arrangements, and
will thus either deteriorate service or
do it at a great loss, in which case, the
masses must be taxed to pay the ex
penses of telegraphic service for the
small per centagc of people who em
ploy it. Though dignified and res
pectful, Orton's letter is a severe cas
tigation of Creswell for his interfer
ence with private rights in a case
where he does not know enough of the
essential elements of the question to
see that what he proposes must inevi
tably work to retard or defeat the ob
ject which he proposes or desires to
(strike on Western Line Peun. It. It.

Further particulars fnmi Kingston,
Fresno county, show that the robbery
of that village, last evening, was per
petrated by Vasquez' band, number
ing about eight or ten Mexicans, two
Americans and a negro. They tied
their horses on the bank of the river
opposite Kingston, crossed the bridge
on foot and took possession of the
hotel and two stores, they tied down
about thirtj'-live men by covering
their weapons in detail, and then pro
ceeded to rifle the safes and money
drawers of their contents, after which
they robbed their victims of watches
and other valuables. In the mean
time the alarm had spread and several
parties armed with guns and revol
vers took up their position across the
■treet and opened Ure on the robbers,
which was returned by the robbers
who were all well armed—Vasquez
himself carrying four navy revolvers.
The Robber* Driven Oft*. Pursuit by
They were finally compelled to re
treat, closely pursued by the citizens
who continued firing on them. Two
parties were formed and started in
pursuit within an hour or two. An
officer from this county collected a
posse of 15 or 20 men and started in
pursuit also, while another posse under
Sheriff Blackburn started from Fresno
this afternoon, one of the gang was
captured on the plains and brought
back to Kingston. The remainder of
the band are supposed to be making
for the Coast Range hotly pursued by
men who will make no troublesome
prisoners should they overtake them.
Traces of blood found on the bridge
this morning, show that one of the
robber-? was wounded. About $2,000
in coin, besides watches and other
valuables were taken. Several vic
tims of the robbery recognized Vas

All right. I don't drink, but I can get
you a corkscrew." Turning to the
other passengers he asked: "Is there
any gentleman from California on the

sure enough, the implement was hand
