less than moving the Los Angeles

The Express uppears to fully endorse
the statements of the San Francisco
lot speculators who are trying to make
the people believe that Los Angeles
does not amount to much, and that
Santa Monica will be the great city.
It says: "The Herald advises such
persons as propose to invest in Santa
Monica lot* to come down and take a
look at the place before making the
investment. Well, Santa Monica will
repay an inspection both from a stand
point of pleasure and of profit."
Gorham in Earnest.
There ia something, after all, in the
animosity of Gorham toward the
railroad company, aud we now have
an inkling of the causes which led to
the rupture between George and the
corporation which made him all that
he is beyond the ordinary individual.
It is well known that the campaign
finances ofthe Republican party have
in the main been for some years past
drawn from the pocket of the railroad
company. This year Governor Stan
ford and his realized that
their interests would not suffer in the
hands of the people, and they there
fore resolved to go out of politics.
This resolution was adhered to, and
the coffers of the Republican State
Central Committee are conse |Uently
empty. George did not like this, ana
while urging Governor Stanford to
reconsider the resolution,the Governor
casually remarked that if George had
remained East the success of the Re
publican party would have been more
certain titan under his management.
This was touching the great wiie
worker on the raw. He flew into a
passion, swore at the railroad, and
threatened not to accept another pass
over the Governor's railway. The re
fusal of the company to put up more
money blighted the affection of Carr,
Phklps and Stow, ami so the party
that have so long lived from the dona
tions of STANFORD have soured on the
railroad company, These fellows were
useful while the corporation stood on
the defensive iv politics, but now that
Governor Stanford is no longer com
pelled to right Communists, their oc
cupation 's gone.
How to Improve the Park.
This city owns a block of excellent
land which it is expected some day in
the future, perhaps a hundred years
hence, will be converted into a park,
luid out in walks, and set out in orna
mental trees. At this time it is only
partially enclosed, and during the
spring and summer seasons it is cov
ered with a luxurious crop of malva.
It is an unsightly waste, and some
thing should be done to improve its
appearance. In the Eastern States
the method commonly resorted to by
towns and cities having unimproved
blocks without the means to beautify
them, is to lease them for a term of
years to landscape gardeners or others
who, for the use of the soil, will leave
the grounds covered with ornatneutal
shrubbery and shade trees. Lot An
geles does not appear disposed to ex
pend the money necessary to improve
her park, and under the circumstan
ces we are inclined to the opinion that
it would lie better and more econom
ical in the end to lease the ground to
some one, the expiration of whose
lease would leave it in a condition of
which every resident in the city would
feel proud. We have landscape garden
ers here, any one of whom, we have no
doubt, will be pleased to lease the park
grounds and bind themselves to leave
the premises covered with shade trees
and flowers. We hope Mr. Geo. B.
Davis, who is an aceomplisned land
scape gardener, and has an abundance
of all kinds of evergreens and flower
shrubbery, will read this item and that
the Council will make arrangements
with him, or some one else, which will

Everybody takes It."
EDiTuB Hkrald: The saloon ques
tion is settled. " Don't shoot, David;
I'll come down;" aud down came the
'coon. That is the situation, In brief.
Messrs. Davis & Bro. have bought off
Mr. Goldstein, rented the building to
the "Peopleof Orange" and obligated
themselves not to encourage saloons
hereafter in this place. The saloon
building has been re-reuted for the
comparatively harmless purposes of a
millinery establishment. One of our
citizens says, however, that " a new
meeting must be called at once; since,
now that our young men are saved,
they are determined to demoralize our
young ladies." Two more new build
ings are needed at once, as there were
three direct applications for the rental
of the "saloon building" on Tuesday.
If the Messrs. Davis choose to build
thetfi and rent them to the furniture
and real-estate men, nobody will ob
ject. In a previous notice of
THIS SALOON QUESTION,
Your correspondent remarked that
Mr. Goldstein "will certainly consult
his best interests by not coming" and
that "he had best mind his top eye."
Whether it was for this harmless bit
of slang we cannot tell, but the Ana
heim Gazette man waxed indignant
last week, aud whipped the people ol
Orange with his straw switch, over
your correspondent's shoulders. The
"top-eye" of Messrs. Davis and Gold
stein is in their purse, aud they have
concluded to "mind" it. Nobody an
ticipated "violence" or "lawlessness,"
except the Gazette man and others of
his ilk, who know no force except
physical force, and always raise that
cry when tbeir pets are attacked. But
would not the honest course have been
for the Gazette man to quote your cor
respondent's notes, or a part of them,
at least, before garbling their mean
ing? Would It not have been honest
for him to tell the fact, that the reso
lutions were backed by the signatures
of one hundred and seventy-three citi
zens of Orange? After the Gazette
man " gets himself into a werry
great state o' admiration" at the dig
nified and law-abidingcharacter of the
citizens of Orange, he pens this beau
tiful sentiment: "We advise them to
muzzle this incipient Journalist—nip
his literary career in the bud." "O,
A LOVELY METAPHOR!
Such as we never met afore!" To be
"muzzled" is bad enough, but to be
"uipped" also is too much. Still, it
might have been expected. The Ga
zette man always means business, and
when he induces the people of Orange
to carry out his little scheme, we'll
submit. At present, however, we are
"nipped but slightly, and "muzzled"
not at all. Mr. Editor, a secret: Some
one has been telling the Gazette man
how fast the Hkrald subscription list
is rolling up on this side of the Santa
Ana and some of the naughty things
the people say to your correspondent
about the Gazette. He has learned
that the Herald has recently estab
lished two regular correspondents here
who will fairly and fully exhibit the
interests of this section, which the
Gazette has not done, and has now lost
the opportunity of doing to advantage.
He has heard what numbers of the
people tell your correspondent—that
they are tired of paying $4 a year for
a driveling little sheet that is fearful
of saying a favorable word about the
magnificent county on this side of the
river, when, for less money, they can
get the Herald, a first-class news
paper, that has the good of the entire
community at heart and speaks the
trutli of every section, without fear or
favor. He has learned that the Her
ITS LIBERAL COURSE,
Has secured the subscriptions which
would otherwise have gone toward es
tablishing a newspaper at Orange or
Santa Ana, and that by future efforts
the Herald intends to increase its
prestige here, simply by supplying the
need of fair representation, denied the
people by the Gazette. His delicate
tittle suggestion is intended for you,
Mr. Editor; and if your correspondent
does not exhibit a greater aptitude for
journalism than the Gazette man has
shown in his unwise, illiberal and
shabby treatment of the people on the
East side of the Santa Ana river, then
by all means "muzzle" him and "nip"
his career at your earliest opportuni
ty. Meantime, the Gazette man will
continue to take his "nip" of Gold
stein's best before writing his editori
als, the Herald will continue "the
great paper of the Southwest," and
saloon men will contiuue to " remain
away from Orange." W.
Orange, Juue 16th, 1875.
"Tell It All."
We have, at last, examined a copy
of that most extraordinary work—of
which upwards of 30,000 copies have
been sold to the present time, and
which has excited so much genuine
interest and attention In all sections
of the country. We allude to Mrs T.
B. H. Stenhouse's new book, entitled,
"Tell it All." It is with great pleas
ure that we hail this remarkable work
—the genuine history of a real Mor
mon woman. Two years ago the au
thor published a little pamphlet on
Polygamy, which attracted considera
ble attention aud created quite a sens
ation among the Saints. The Mormou
papers took up the subject and, allud
ing derisively to the delicate reticence
so natural to a sensitive woman, dis
played by the author, spitefully invit
ed her to "Tell it All." Men and
women of position in all parts of the
country, who had visited her in Salt
Lake City, urged her to seize the op
portunity, "write a book," and lay
the whole truth before the world. Mrs.
Stenhouse ultimately consented and
chose for the title of her new volume
the wordß of derision used by her
Mormon opponents—"Tell it All."
This work will be sold only to those
who order of the agent, who will soon
introduce it to our citizens. We be
speak for it a most cordial reception,
for it is worthy of it. Mr. J. M, Gris

Editor Herald: Tustin is situated
on the border of the great San Joaquin
ranch. This ranch is held by a com
pany of capitalists who offer none of
it for sale. It is considered here as a
great obstruction to the settlement of
the county. Nearly all thY available
land outside of the Han Joaquin Is cut
up aud sold, and the settlers need
more room to "spread out." Not an
acre of this great tract can be pur
chased, however, and a body of land
capable of sustaining iv prosperity
thousands of enterprising men, is peo
pled only by bands of sheep with
A pleasant feature of this place is its
situation among a fine grove of syca
more trees. A majority of the houses
are thus provided with pleasant shade
without waiting for the slow growth
character of the soil.
There is no laud in Anaheim, Santa
Ana or Orange that surpasses the soil
of Tustin. It is a body of loam, sandy
in the Northern part, darker and
poorer as we go South. There are
spots of gravel, but these have their
special crops and are nearly worth as
much as the freer loam. The land
here retains moisture surprisingly, if
properly cultivated. In the corn
fields you can rind plenty of moisture
almost any where at a depth of three
or four incites. I rode through a field
of fifteen acres of corn, from six to
nine feet high, that has not been irri
gated once this season. I believe the
statement of its owner, William A.
Smith is true, that " You can put the
weeds on the whole fifteen acres in
your hat." It is the loosening of tbe
soil that permits the water to rise near
the surface. If our farmers gave two
thirds of the attention to their crops
here that is necessary in the East
ern States, the bugbear of irrigation
would not be so great as it is made to
appear. Mr. B. F. Maxson showed me
a field of corn which almost equals
that of Mr. Smith, that has had no
water until within a few days. Mr.
M. also showed me a twenty-four ton
stack of hay that he cut this season
from ten acres of volunteer.
Potatoes are a specialty here. While
Tustin cannot, perhaps, compete with
the Bodega country as to quantity in
raising this staple, neither Bodega nor
any other country can raise better
potatoes than can be grown here. It
is not difficult to get two full crops
from the same piece of land, and it
may safely be said that potato raising
pays here. Messrs. Peters, Gregg,
Short, King aud Gallagher have near
Tustin, a small castor bean natch con
taining three hundred and twenty
acres. The rows are one mile long,
and there are three hundred and thirty
rows. Just think of it—three hundred
aud thirty miles of castor oil! Messrs.
Peters ami Short have here also a two
hundred and twenty acre hay field
that is yielding finely.
But the attention of farming is not
given altogether to "cropping" this
season. The orchards of Tustin are
growing rapidly in number. There
was a large demand for peach-trees
here this Spring, which could not be
supplied, but next season will remedy
The Herald's regular correspond
ents will keep you informed of the

lug Well—Condition of Crop*,
Editor Herald:—Since our last
letter many and various changes have
taken place. Mr. M. Guess has
opened a first class restaurant,,
where all the dainties of the season
can be had. It is no "guesswork"
with "Mose," for he has all things at
his coinntnnd to make an epicure smile
with delight. The increasing demand
for new meal, han caused Messrs. Hiok
ey & Pietees to start another butcher
shop. "Green" says that if they eat
all tho cattle lo be found, he'll come
the French on them and bring them a
bronco mule. Our saddle and harness
shop will soon be ready for occupancy.
Mr. J. Orvis, recently from lowa, will,
in a few days, open a boot and shoe
shop, and in connection therewith a
saddle and harness shop. Mr. Sum
merlield, late with Mr. Frankle <fc Co.,
has opened a bran new store, where
anything, from a hairpin up to a
grinding stone can be had.
Our friend Conrad, from Anaheim,
is building a first class house to be
used as a beer saloon aud depot.
"Con" has come to the conclusion that
to do business he must go where live
folks dwell, and Santa Ana is the
place. Conrad will keep "temperance
bar," so you need not be afraid to oall
and see him when you come down.
Artesian wells are all the go.
A FLOWING WELL.
Mr. Long struck a tine four-inch
flow a few days since, also an inch
flow. He gets water enough with a
reservoir to irrigate live hundred acres
of such lauds us we have here.
CONDITION OF CROPS.
Crops are looking fine throughout
the valley. Small grain will be at
least equal to any previous year for
the last three, so we have been In
formed by old farmers. Corn bids fair
er than any previous year. We took a
drive yesterday and were shown some
wonderful things. Mr. Jacobs, near
Tustin City, showed us corn which
had grown seven feet in two weeks
without a drop of water since it was
planted. Mr. Mills near the same
place, has au orange tree growing at
the rate of an inch per day. How is
ttiat for high? We could enumerate
many more such instances, but prefer
to administer it in broken doses. If
we were to tell Miss Helen, your fair
engineer from Aarora, Illinois, that
James Lay mar, in the "Swamp,"
raised an an average of one hundred
and thirty-one bushels of corn to the
acre, we fear she would not believe us,
yet such Is the truth, and Mr. Chas.
Laytnor raised an average of one hun
dred and ten bushels per acre. Illi
nois is our native State, but it can't
compare with Los Angeles county,

In the southern counties the damage
