We have examined the new map
of tho county prepared by tbe
Messrs. Wildy & Stahlberg, and
which received such high oom
mendation from tiie Board of Su

noted points iv Los Augeles county
are laid down on It acouiateiy and
minutely. It will doubtless be
largely in demand.
At (he regular monthly meeting
of (lie Board of Directors of the Los
Angeles Free Dispensary, which
was held yesterday, it was resolved
that a course of lectures be given
for the purpose of raising funds to
purchase medicines with. A Com
mittee consisting ot C. W. Gibsou,
C. H. Dunsmoor and A. W. Potts
was appointed witli power to make
all arrangements. We learn from
these gentlemen that it is their In
tention to Invito three of our most
prominent, able and eloquent citi
zens to deliver ouo lecture each.
The names of the lecturers wl II be
made public In Wednesday's HER
ALD. There is no doubt but that
a course of scholarly, instructive
lectures will be nn advantage to
Ibis community in an intellectual
point of view, to sny nothing of the
charituble object of this course.
The Free Dispensary on Requeua

The Horticultural Society, at its
session yesterday, postponed the
exhibition of March in consequence
of the failure of tho deciduous fruit
crop last season, which left the
orcliardists with a small showing
of Winter apples and pears. The
meeting was not largely attended,
but the discussion of tbe northern
fruit questions elicited much valu
able information. Mr. Crow, fore
man for Louis Wolfskin, presented
some sumples of Wolfskin's Eureka
orange which was of very superior
flavor and texture. This orange Is
a chance Los Angeles seedling and
is being budded quite extensively
by Mr. Wolfskin. The next meet
ing of the Society will be held on
Saturday, March 9, at which time
officers of the Society will be elect
ed for the ensuing year.
A most striking instance of the
procrastination of the legal frater
nity* came to our notice yesterday.
Tbe case of Huse vs. Den, involv
iugtlie title to three or tour hundred
thousand dollars' worth of real es
tate, was tried by Judge Sepuiveda
in Santa Barbara iv March last,
and it was only yesterday that he
succeeded iv obtaining from counsel
for tbe Den heirs their findings in
the action. Thus, a year has eiaps
ed from the closing of the case be
fore it has been put in shape to be
passed upon by his Honor. No
doubt the clients on both sides have
wondered why n decision has been
so long withheld, and some of them
may learn now, for the first time,
tho cause. Some of tbe most ab
struse legal questions ever submit
ted for adjudication ill this State
are said to be involved iv the mat
We have received a great many
congratulations upon our having
had the good sense lo strike a dis
tinctively Los Angeles position on
tho railway question In our issue
yesterday. The fact is that we
have allowed a few clever and en
ergetic San Diegans in our midst lo
blind us to the true interests of our
own city and couuty. V'hen a
scheme of a transcontinental rail
way is outlined that will make Los
Angeles a great city, we should be
fatuous not to embrace the oppor
tunity offered. Give us, by all
means, a Los Angeles road to the

Work has been omnieuced and
is progressing on Gov. Downey's
marble front building, adjoining
the new Baker Hlock. This beauti
ful structure, when completed, will
truly be an ornament to our town.
Its frou', elevation will bo three
stories in height—higher thau the
adjoining portion of the St. Charles
Hotel—aud, we are informed, will
be composed entirely of marble. It
will be the only marble building in
California, so far as we know. Thus
the enduring anil costly edifices
which are being erected by out
most careful capitalists, proves
their confidence in our city's fu
ture, and that they are not afraid
to invest their money at home.
In the discussion of tho school
text book question Iv the Senate
yesterday, Col. Smith offered the
following substitute for tiie substi
tute for the substitute introduced
by Pierson to Lewis's text book
bill: Providing for tbe appoint
ment of a Commission consisting
of the Governor, the President of
tho State University and the Su
perintendent of Public Instruction
to consider the whole question of
whether the State shall own its
text books or purchase the same
from publishers for dlstrihutiou to
pupils at Wholesale prices.
Every coiguo of vantage in Los
Augeles in tho shape of exposed
superficies, vertical or horizontal,
was found to be covored yesterday
with parti colored emblazonmeuts
of the now attractions of Wood's
Opera Troupe. Ihe quid-mines aud
amusement-goers are brimful nf an
ticipations of something highly
roseate and enjoyable. The town
has missed Wood. He disappeared
with the drouth and has returned
with the good season.
Joseph Cahill, who escaped from
the chain gang some days ago, was
up before Judge Pee! yesterday and
had the (en days for which he was
originally sentenced increased to
twenty days as a reward for his at
tempt to free himself. One drunk
went up for five days, one faßt rider
was t\ned $4 (all the money he was
possessed of) and one man, accused
of trespass, was discharged.
The jury iv the oase of Tamiet,
tried for forgery, yestorday morn
ing, after a night spent in delibera
tion, brought in a verdict of not
guilty. At 8 o'clock the previous
evening they reported to Judge
Stephens that they were not likely
to agree. He, however, thought
differently aud sent them back to
their room, where they dually
agreed to acquit the acsused.

HOW THEY MADE "DRUNK" COME.
ingenuity of Prisoners at Baa Quentln—How
they Distilled tbeir own Liquor.
A citizen of Los Angeles, wiio
lately paid a visit to Sau Quentiu,
related to us an Incident wbicli
came under bis observation that
we regard as highly interesting. It
shows what a determined instinct
the advocates of temperance have
to combat and to what lengths
lovers of strong driuk will resort to
gratily their passion. Capt. Haw
kins the immediate Superintend
ent of the prisoners, had had occa
sion to notice that four or live of
tbe most desperate of them got
pretty drunk regularly, so much so
as to make them unruly. One had
even been conflued in the "dark"
hole as a punishment for his refrac
toriness. The mystery was, how
did they get their liquor? No intox
icating bevorage, under any pre
tence whatever, is ever suffered to
enter the prison, and tiie inspectors
themselves manipulated every
thing the prisoners received. A
mystery it remained for some time.
On the day of our informant's visit
it was solved. One of the "trus
tieß," or turnkeys, on searching the
niattrass of the refractory drunk
ard, found in it an ingeniously con
structed still and tbo alcohol was
evolved in the following highly
Tbe men ulluded to had been em
ployed, for some time previous to
their drunken tits, in painting
about the prison yard. In the palm
there was a eonsi lerabie quauty of
alcohol. One of the party uouuei ved
the idea of taking two tin cups, and
the tin of several other cups, the
latter being used in making a
worm which led iv a spiral of some
length from one cup to the other.
It was about tbe thickness of a lead
pencil aud was remarkable for the
delicacy and finish which bad been
shown in its construction. Having
provided a cover for one of hie cupi,
he filled it with paint, Inserted nis
worm, placed the veßsel over a
burning lamp and the novel process
of distillation was In full progress.
The alcohol in thp paint was vapor
ized and asceuded the worm, while
the distiller poured a stream of cold
water on its center, condensing the
alcoholic vapor and catching the
distilled spirit in tbo other cup, to
which tbe other section of tbe worm
led. All that was then needed was
to driuk the liquor, with the fla
grant evidences of intoxication be
fore noted resulting, as a matter of
Ceriainly these poor fellows got
their "nips" under difficulties.

A New Iron Steamer.
The new iron steamer Oregon, to
run betweeu Sau Francisco und
Portland, was last week turned over
by the builders to Mr. Billard,
President of the Company in New
York. Ou her trial trip between
Chester and New York the steamer
made nn average of 14 knots an
hour. Tbe fact of the steamer's
completion and tbe high rate of
spoed she attained was telegraphed
here to Capt. Vau Otteudorp. It is
claimed that sho can make 10 knots
an hour wheu loaded, which is her
maximum speed. She is 300 feet
long, and 2500 tons burden. Her
passenger accommonatious arc of
the must spacious description, and
she can easily carry 500 steerage
and 800 cabiu passengers. It is the
Intentiou to use her iv the wheat

Columbia and California,two other
steamers nearly finished for this
Company. These steamers will be
under tbe command of Capt. Con
nor, who is Commodore of ttie fleet,
and lie will also command person
ally ou the Oregon's first trip to
Oregon. During tho busy season
these steamers will leave for Port
land every 5 days,and it is expected
that they will be üble to trausnort
from Oregon this year over 10,000,
