Santa Paula Oil Belt.
We have received a communica
tion from Sauta Paula, signed
"Mark us One," the whole of which
we do not publish because it con
tains a bitter and detailed attack
on San Buenaventura, for which
pluco we have a hearty good will.
After alluding to tlie failure of the
attempt to reach oil in tlie corpor
ate limits of Ventura, after sinking
to a depth of one thousand feet,
"Mark us One" says:
"Bad tho Star Oil Company
locatetl their works, and prosecuted
their developments hack from the
sea-beach fifteen or twenty miles,
on the known oil belt, ere they
would have expended half tho sum
thrown away on the Lady Emma
aud Bos Coctas well", near Ven
tura, oil would have Been found in
quantities not yet struck upon the
Pacific Coast. Tho above company
are doing nothing iv tho way of
developing the oil interests of Ven
tura county, but the Bos Angeles
and Santa Barbara companies are
progressing rapidly witli their ma
chinery in putting down their
wells, the former on tho Little
Sespo and tho other in what is
known as Hopson'l cation. These
companies are prospecting nt a
point on the oil belt Where every
indication is favorable for a rich
strike of oil. They are situated on
the north side of the Santa Clara
river on a line of tlie belt northwest
from the Pico well about lifteen
or twenty miles. Numerous oil
springs exist in the vicinity where
they are operating, some or which
flow several barrels per duy.
While following the oil belt west
ward after leaving Adams & Co.'s
oil works, tlie indications diminish
until, at a poiut near where the
Star Oil Company tried their late
experiment, nothing exists SAVe
surface indications or rather a resi
duum of oil, the depth of which is
only a few hundred feet.
Tho Santa Paula oil region indi
cates vast deposits. The mountains
are about the same altitude as at
the Pico oil locality, and the con
formation of the rooks and dip are
similar. Several natural oil springs
exist iv this vicinity, some of
which would pay well to work. Ou
tlie eaHt side of Santa Paula creek
about live miles from this place, is
a largo oil spring, known as the
Hercules, from which flows over
six battels of crude nil, wUich gives
The oil interest of Ventura
county is just in its Infancy, and
would ever remain so, if it were left
to the capital and enterprise of
Ventura to develop it, for the soon
er that place finds out that she is
simply a quiet, pleasant littla sea
beach village, and that her future
must depend upon tho develop
ments and resources which exist
outside of Hie corporate limits of
tho place, tho less time she will
give tlie public to laugh at her self
Whether San Buenaventura will
form a joint stock concern and bore
for oil in Iter Plaza, or ask Congress
to donate a half million tnconstruct
a breakwater,remain to he seen,but
that Satilu Paula, in the near fu
ture, will take the wind out of Ven
tura's sails, is 100 patent a fact to bo

Sudden Death of Dr. Stanway.
We were shocked to hear of the
sudden death Of Dr. T. S. Stanway,
Wbieb occurred at about half-past
seven o'clock yesterday evening,
from apoplexy. The Doctor had
been Iv the enjoyment of his usual
health up lo live o'clock, when he
was taken with vertigo. Mrs.
Stanway at oncesent for Dr. Wise,
bis regular physician, who arrived
shortly after. Dr. Kurtz meantime
had been summoned, lioth did all
they could to save the sufferer's
life but without avail und about
two hours after the attack Dr.
Stanway had ceased to bl eat he.
The deceased hud suffered for a
number of years from asthma and
several times had been attacked
with premonitory symptoms of the
disease from which he died, but,
notwithstanding, his muny friends
were inexpressibly surprised aud
shocked at his sudden taking off, A
post mortem examination was to
have beeu held last night.
Early yesterday morning there
WOS a novel scene ou Los Angeles
street. A Chinese lady (?) had
started to cross that thoroughfare.
She wore tlie wooden shoes which
the race affect even In California.
When she was half-way over she
realised to her horror that she was
"mired down." She had no re
course for it but to withdraw first
one foot anil then the other from
the shoes nnd remove her spotless
white stockings. That feat accom
plished, in her bare feet, With shoes
aud stockings under her arms, she
finally managed to scramble
through. A number of gallant
Caucasian gentlemen witnessed the
episode from the wholesalo ware
houses aligning Lis Angeles street,
but not one of them rushed to her
rescue. Had a dainty Caucasian
belle beeu in sucli a predicament
how instant and Sir Walter Raleigh
like would have boon the proffers

The Confidence boys bad a drees
rehearsal nt Turn Vereln Hall last
night. Mr. Jarley, notwithstand
ing iris long sojourn ou the thither
side of Styx, had loit nothing of
the suavity and originality that
had characterized him dining ins
previous public life and tho ma
chinery of his "llggers" worked to
a charm. The other features of the
entertainment also went oft' well.
Our people may expect a rich and
racy treat to-night.
The photograph building which
slood on First street was demolish
ed iv a very thorough way yester
day, in th' wee sin a' hours. It was
located on the property recently
purchased from Mayor MacDou
gall by Mr. Nadeau, aud on which
the latter gentleman proposes to
erect his line block. It appears
that Judge Thomas H. Smith
claimed the building in right of the
wife of the deceased photographer,
also named Smith. At 3 o'clock of
tho morning, a fow minutes after
the Herald hud gone to press,
Judge Smith, accompanied by a
number of workmen, appeared on
the scene, and began taking the
gallery down. Mr. Nadeau's agent
was presently aroused, came post
haste to the loculßialto,and entered
his protest. Judge Smith instructed
his workmen to do right though the
heavens should fall, and proceed
with their work with the utmost
possible expedition. Mr. Nadeau's
agent disappeared and came back
With officers Jerome and Tribolet
und ordered the demolition of the
building to stop. Judge Smith or
dered the workmen to disregard
the arrest. Tlie officers, however,
persevered and wore presently re
inforced by tho arrival of Chief
of Police Harris, who commanded
It was now the turn of Judge
Smith to disappear, which ho did
with the promptitude witli which
Harlequin in the pantomime dis
charges himsell through au appa
rently solid wall. This sagacious
limb of the law hud had the ser
pent's wisdom to provide himself
with warrants of arrest against
John Doe, Richard Hoc, and other
tumultuous people who might feel
Inclined to interfere with his Vit
ruvius like operations. Willi
these documents iv his hands, and
accompanied by a Deputy Sheriff,
Judge Smith with a Mcphistophel
iatl smile, appeared again upon tlie
scene; and, presto, Harris, Jerome
and Tribolet found themselves all
under arrest und powerless to inter
fere with the removal of that build
ing, which thereupon anil thereaf
ter incontinently disappeared.
It seems Unit the whole trouble
arose from the neglect of Mayor
MacDougall, in selling the prop
erty to Mr. Nadeau, lo except the
building aforesaid from tlie deed.
What the subsequent legal and
other developments will be we are

That Police Judgeship.
Editor Herald: I noticed a
suggestion to the Charter Commit
tee in Tuesday's issue of the Her
ald, harping on tbe exorbitant
salary paid to tlie Police Judge.
Tlie writer makes his suggestions
over tho norn de plume of " Ob
server." Now, that he could get a
Judge for fifty dollars per month, I
have little doubt; und doubt still
less that the fifty-dollar man is
Mr. Observei's valuable self. I
suppose that Mr. Observer is public
Spirited enough to donate hi-; val
uable time to the service of tho
city for llfty dollars, provided be
could (us he believes, no doubl,)
get his hooks on the "ollicial flesh
pots;" but, if that is his idea, it is
my opinion lie would come out
minus, for I have observed that
there ure several pairs of eyes
in the city fastened on this same
office, and tlie owners of these eyes
evidently take considerable inter
est in its proceedings.
But if Mr. Observer is a compe
tent Judge and understands the
business belter than tlie present
one and will give good security to
the city for his faithful perform
ance of ull tile duties pertaining to
the olllce (for I would not like lo
see him without Ills security) for
lifty dollars v month, let him have
it. Even then I think there would
be littlo done in Hie Police Court,
for tlie kind-hearted fellow would
turn all tho business over to the
three Justices he speuks so feeling
ly about. 1 wonder if the three
honorable gentlemen would thank
him for what he could throw in
their way? He could not hope for
any leWard from them, for they
don't buy aud sell that kind of
1 think it is evident, sir, that
Observer is a sore-bead and don't
understand the subject of munici
pal governments. Who is next?
