on the Pacific Coast, outside or Man Fran.

No ta»n who has kept himself
eonvsrsaul with the commercial
developments of the world at large
has been Ignorant of tha fact tbat,
•▼trainee the financial trouble! in
Vlenaa which preceded our own
panic of 1873, business has been
greatly depressed everywhere. Cal
ifornia was years catching the epi
demic, but it got hers at last; and,
In time, It reached Los Angeles.
Immersed in our own troubles and
deferred hopes wa have committed
the mistake of supposing that our
case was an exceptional one, and
tbat languor in business and devel
opment was an Incident peculiar to
ourselves. The fact Is, however,
that Los Augeles has borne the
pressure of hard times—and old
Hard Timed for this coast is now in
hlsdyin i throes—better than any
other to,vn in California, not even
•xeeptlug the wealthy, expansive
and expanding metropolis itself.
During our recent visit to San
Francisco we encountered Mr. W.
H. Martin, nf the California Immi
grant Union and visited tbe head
quarters of the association by re
quest. Mr. Martin took down two
patent self-indexing files and began
to turn over his correspondence
from tfee Esst. The mass probably
embraced six or seven hundred let
ters. To our extreme surprise fully
two-thirds of them were letters of
luquiry as to the various poiuts in
Southern California, aud fully one
half related particularly to Los An
gileseity and county. It was a
nsw light, to us. I*. d9tn >nstr.tled
tbe fast of the existence of a wide
spread, inte.ligent and practical in
terest by Eastern paonls iv this
oeation, which will take, effect ou
the first return of the good times
whose advent li-ts been en often
heralded and which u>w seem to
be at baud.
We confess th*t w;i Were glad to
laarn that the interest of thu outside
Wirld in I, ii Augeles ii still
U labated. Tho fact is a signifi-
OAntcommentiii v upon our lack of
latercst In ourselves. During our
■ 'ay In San Francisco twnstcameta
left for 0'0i;o i in ouo day, oue of
tbem taking over eight hundred
passengers. The cheap fares to
Oregon explain some of the heavy
Immigration to that State. The
cheap lauds to be had there are
another inducement. But, waiv
ing both these reasons, the prime
guise fer the rapid settlement of
Oregon is the inter. thu peo
ple of that State take in attracting
Immigration. They issue circu
lars by tho million. They have
ajents at Omaha aud Ogden. A
man who has not made up hl»
mind where he intends to locate
03 arriving ou the Pacific Coast
finis himself with a ticket to Ore
gon iv bis poeko! almost before he
kmws what ho is about. We eon
f>s» to ait unbounded admiration
s>f(beenterprise of the people ef
the Webfoot citato. We should
emulato them if wo dcii.-c the pop
ulation new blur], induitry and
capital nee led lo develop the most
p urulsiu ; »«c i>:i of the Pacific
'flu-re is no resisting the force ef
snob evidauea as that shown u( (,y
Mr. Martin. Of course, low fates
to Los Augeles area ojnsumma-'
tlo:% devj'.itly to bj wished; but
there is au immense eleiu >vi from
which tlie population of this coun
ty can be recruited if we will only
pat forward tho proper efforts.
Times are improviug In botli the
East and California. There are
abundant signs that we sh ill have
in this State, beginning with the
later Fall, a revival uf the pros
perity of 1574 and 1875. Tha Com
stojk loJa is about to show itself
en lowed with new life aud enor
m his capabilities of treasure pro
duction, or all tlie most reliable
mi'iiug opinio.i is at fault. We
should t».k j in ) i-ure-i lo sco that
Los Angeles sUail share, iv the
largest practicable measure, in this
reviving prosperity, and we should
slO to it that tho Eastern settlers

Three citizens of Los Angeles

ai m>n of business discrimination
hivu lately made somewhat ex
tended trips through California. As
tbe result of our conversations
wilh each of them, viz., the Messrs.
Workman, Kuhrts and Thatcher,
we loam that, iv no quarter of this
commonwealth, did they see evi
dences of the substantial progress
wbieh has been beeu made in Lot
Angeles during the ps9t twelve
moutb. The ouiplaiut of hard
times i* made far more noisily in
all the places visited by them than
iv LO9 Angoies. The fact is that
tbe whole Stat 1 ! is just at that point
where it la "■> long lane that liai no
turning;" where it is 'Marker just
before dawn." The visitation of
the "bard times" which iiave pre
vailed East was deferred for fully
three years in California, and the
Visit is already drawing to a close,
after a comparatively short dura
tion. Sau Francisco which, to the
rural visitor, of oourse seems busy,
has gone through an ordeal unpre
cedented in its severity. But the
reviving real estate market, the
awakening in building Improve
ments iv Sau Francisco, the enor
mous grain crops which will focus
at that city, all give promise of a
prosperity which Is guarantee ! by
tho renewed activity at the mines.
Nowhere has tbo cry of distress
been heard more loudly than iv
San Frauclsco, and yet we much
mistake the signs of the limes uru
uew era of prosperity h is set vi in
that oity which will ramify all
over tlie State, and which will as
sist our own people lv developing
their unnumbered resouroej.
The sudden death of Montague,
tho actor, at the I'aiace Hotel, Baa
Francisco, Sunday night, is one of
the numberless confirmations of
the script u-.1 aphorism that in the
midst of life we arc in death. Tbe
writer had several times, within
tho past two weeks, seen this
young man, apparantly in tho full
flush of youth, enacting his part,

"glass of fashion and the mould of

appreciatively through the aid of
thousands of opera glasses ia tbe
bands of all that was notable for
grace and beauty in the Golden
Gate. Montague was one of the
trio, made up of EJinund Booth,
Rignoid and himself, who, in their
stage personnel, were calculated to
give Ihe mosi vivid impression of
virility, spriog, dash and vitality.
Yet the glamour of theatrical suc

career, no more protected him from

THE scene Which is to dny being
witnessed in our own city, of mule
teams und wagons conveying grain
to storage, is being reproduced in
every nook and corner of Califor
nia accessible to railway < r boat.
The grain crop of this State is im
mense, and the significance of this
Statement is emphasized by the
telegraphed intelligence of Ibe
damaged cereal crops of the East.
It is really a sight to see—the
heaped sacks of wheat and bailey
which aro seeking San Fruucisco
freni all quarters, confirming Fried
lander's estimate tbat tlie present
ii Ibe laigest grain crop ever har
vested iv the State. Another nota

sumed its sessions this morning,
but, iv the absence of several mem
bers, no witnesses were examined.
Qen. llutkr asked thut Stanley
Matthews be summoned. Mr. Pot
ter said ll.e Senator hail teen sum
moned Saturday and that he re
plied, "au important engagement
at Newport would prevent Ills at
tending und,whatever he intended,
be deemed of no eousequeuco to the
Committee." From this reply Mr.
Potter said he Inferred thatSenater
Matthews did not mean to respond
to the summons.
General Butler remarked that if
Matlhews's answer meant that be
would not attend or obey the sum
mons of the House of Representa
tives, the sooner the issue was
made, the better lor the House and
Senate, so that the powers of both
can be determined. If the House
has not power to compel the at
tendance of witnesses, then Inves
tigation iri useless, as subject to
suspension, lie did not know what
credit to give lo certain newspaper
articles he bail seen, but if they
were true, Matthews had been tes
tifying lo newspaper reporters. He
tells to Ilieuias much as he pleases,
and we want him here to tell as
much aa the Committee pleases.
He therefore moved that It be en
tered on the record that Matthews
refuses to appear before the Com
mittee, and that the same be re
ported to the House for their aotion
in the matter.
Potter remarked that he would
entertain ISutler's motion, but
thought it better to await the pres

voting on it. He therefore ad

IMPROVED HAY FORK
; Patent Applied For.|
Is the most perfect, and easiest operating
-jrrlck fork In existence. One tusn can
operate It with the greatest ease.ss tbe strain
of lifting the fork causes It to grapple its
load automatically, while a null upon the
releaslug cord, when the fork has been lirterl
to the desired plaoe, causes it to drop tbe load
Then is nothing la ths ranatrnction of this
Fork that ti liable to get out of order,
rarraeri will do well to examine this Hay
Fork, as It saves expense anil greatly facili.
tates tbe handling of hay, grain and straw.
