San Dtaoo, August 80, -It is under

made hy a St. Louis syndicate for a
new railroad from Loo Angeles to San
Jacinto, and from there on southward
croesimr the headquarters of the Santa
Marguerita, passing near Oak Grove
through the Valle de San Jose and
Sant; Isabel and on to Balena. From
the latter point the line will probably
keep to the southward, tapping Costa
Madera valley before bearing to the
westward for San Diego.
From Los Angeles to San Jacinto
the distance is about 100 miles and
the company will be given at least
$200,000 in subsidies from San Jacinto
to San Diego. The distance over the
route proposed will lie about 1M miles
between these points. The company
will receive large 'übsidies in the

ing of the OO X) tons of wheat held hy
the creditors as security. A commit
tee was instructed to repott whether
it should be sold or divided.
THK SCB.IKCT WKI.I. DISCCSSED.
The amount of business in the Pro
duce Exchange is limited at present
as the board of directors are engaged
in solving the problem of holding the
remainder of the wheat deposit made
try Dresbach & Rosenfeld for the ac
count of members of the board free
from the demands of outsidecreditors.
That is the reason that the delinquents
have not been sold out, as that step
would free them from a lien of the
Hoard and give other creditors a
chance to step in and claim their
share of the deposit.

It is believed that some definite con
clusion will soon be reached and a
settlement on the basis of wheat on
