That old-time Democratic warhorse,
ex-Senator William A. Conn, is paying
Los Angeles a visit. Though still some

happened to him some years ago, he
still retains the mental vigor and force
of character which made him a man of
mark for such a long period ?n Southern
That people from abroad appreciate
the attractive openings which exist in
■ fenoh large measure for profitable invest
ment in Southern California lands is
shown by the fict that between two
issues of tbe Ontario Record upwards of
$100,000 worth of property was sold in
that neighborhood. As a matter of fact,
lands are celling there for higher figures
than prevailed during the boom, and
they are richly worth the money.
That there is a good deal of latent
public spirit in Los Angeles is shown by
the rapidly-increasing membership and
vigor of the Chamber of Commerce.
That body is now in a very commanding
portion for good. Its permanent ex
hibit in its new quarters in the Mott
building is being arranged with good
taste and judgment and will be replete
with interest to persons from abroad who
desire to know something of the range
of the resources of Los Angeles county
The membership of the Chamber should
be increased to a thousand at least.
This would enable it to do a world of
There are indications on every hand
that the partial stagnation which has
prevailed on all hands in Los Angelei
county is about to be succeeded by an
era of decided activity. During the past
winter great numbers of people from
every State in the Union have visi-e
Los Angeles, and the impulse to invest
is strong with most of them. There was
a considerable Danver contingent amongst
tbem, and $100,000 has recently gone
into the Gahuenga valley, placed there
by Denveritea. Toe other day a Tacoma
capitalist critically inspected the San
Gabriel valley, and announced his inten
tion to return to the North, close up hie
affairs and invest hia shekels in Loa An
geles county. These are bnt straws
which show which way the wind is blow
The Finance Committee of the Coun
cil yesterday concluded to keep its action
as to whether or no the city should pur
chase a safe secret. It is understood,
however, that the sentiment in that body
is not favorable to the Mayor's position.
The average Los Angeles citizen is dis
posed to look with anything but favor on
the inauguration of a Star Chamber on a
small scale in the municipal affairs of
Los Angeies. The whole matter will
come up in the regular meeting of the
Council Monday, and it is said that there
is blood on the face of the moon. Tne
City Attorney holds that tbe municipal
treasury is safe in any event, as a l> jii i
has been furnished to indemnify it if the
decision in the injunction suit should be
adverse to the Ring. There is a universal
feeling in this city, however, that a prin
ciple is involved, and that the Council
itself should order a compliance with the'
plain intent and even latter of the law
Doubtless on Monday that body wil'
show its sense of this public sentiment.
The course of President Manvel all
over this Southern country has baeu
marked by unstinted praises of the late
Citrus Fair held in this city, and of th >
country which could produce such au
exhibit. The Santa Fe Railway Com
pany, with its running mate, the Atlantic
<Sc Pacific, can ba of immense service in
settling up Southern California, and fir
utmost energies of thaae corporations
will be directed towards that end. It
must be borne in mind that tho territory
adapted to producing tne oranga in per
fection is very limited in extent all over
the world, and particularly so in the
United States. Even more limited are
the lands which can grow not only the
citrus fruits but the deciduous as well,
and nearly every product of earth, in
cluding the cereals, the pomegranate ami
the storied fruits of the scriptural and
classical narratives. The same impres
sion which the President of the Santa Fe
road carried away with him has been
created in the breasts of thousands who
were called to Los Angeles during the
late Citrus Fair.
The cheapest real estate on the Pacific
Coast just now, relatively speaking, is in
Los Angelas county. Great tracts of the
richest vineyard and orange lands on the
footstool can be bought n the immediare
neighborhood of this city for less than
half the price asked for less desirable
lands in Fresno county, and yet Los An
geles is a large city, with a commanding
geographical position, railway ramifica
tions not approached by more than half
a doz m cities in the United States, and
with three or four roadsteads, which are
rapidly being made serviceable harbors,
thus giviog this county the advantage of
that commercial highway of all ages, the
ocean. We do not wish to be understood
as intimating that the Fresno lands are
held at too high a figure. Wnat we aim
to convey is that the bargain-hunter can
now find in the ranch properties of Los
Angeles county his real estate El Dorado.
There is doubled money in the next two
years in laud purchased at any point of
the compass within twenty miles of the
«ity of Lo* Angeles. .^^^
Tflß LOS A.JSGELKB DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MORNiM, MARCH 22, 1890.
Real Work at Last.
The Chamber of Commerce, at ita
meeting yesterday, took strong and sen
sible ground, and if the plan outlined
there is followed np Boathern California
will at last be fitly represented at the
East, and an intelligent direction will be
given to the tide of immigration that can (
be readily influenced to settle in Southern
California. The generous offer of Presi
dent Manvel, of the Santa Ft' Railway j
Company, was thoroughly discussed.
The Hhbald has frequently referred to
this railway magnate's liberal proffer,
which embodies elegant and commodious
accommodations in the Rialto building
in Chicago for an exhibit of the products
of Southern California; the free transpor
tation thither of such articles as our
people deem it fit to send; and the pas
sage, free of cost, of such persons as may
be deputed to take charge of the enter
prise. Mr. Manvel's idea is that this
should be distinctively a Southern Cal
ifornia display, and that it should be
labeled as such, leaving out the names of
the localities. There is wisdom in this
snggestion. Quite a large number of our
representative citizens were present at.
the melting yesterday afternoon, and an
excellent spirit was manifested. Mr. D.
Freeman, of the Centinela, thought that
we should have an exhibit both in New
York and Chicago, and was of
opinion that the 6cheme properly carried
out would cost from $1,200 to $1,500 a]
month. He volunteered to contribute i
$40 a month towards the movement.
Other members agreed that there ought
to be two Eastern exhibits; all were in
favr r of one at Chicago, and others pre
ferred Boston and Minneapolis or Mil
waukee to New York. Hon. E. F.
Spence professed his willingness to con
tribute $500 a year for two years to help
the plan along. M. L. Wicks, Esq ,
came to the front with a tender of $20 a
month. It is calculated that Los An
geles's share of the sum to be raised, it
the project is carried out on the scale
suggested by Mr. Freeman, would be
$800 or $900 monthly, the rest of the
$1,500 being contributed by the adjoin
ing counties. We have here at la»t a
proposition which will place Loa Angeles
b< fore the people of tbe East in an
attractive and telling manner, and tbe
Herald heartily hopes that it will be
carried out on a thorough scale. It is a
capital sign of the times to see our
capitalists buckling down to ihe work in
A Journal Goen Wrong.
It is a sad thing for Los Angeles that it
fails to secure the approval of tbe New
York Dramatic News. That journal sajs
that this oity is absolutely the worst
show town in the United Btates. There
is no qualification in this sweeping judg
ment. Like most people who write ex
cathedra the editor of the News does not
know what he is talking about. When
a show is worth anything its reception in
Los Angeles is in nearly all cases appre
i ciative and satisfactory from a pecuniary
. point of view Tbe National Opera Com
pany played in this city to the largest
audiences it secured anywhere, and the
business for the week was the largest
ever recorded in its career. Mr. Booth,
b mm a Abbott, and all combinations of
merit, always draw largely here. Los
Angeles is the only town of its sirs that
Patti ever honored, and her engagement
was highly successful pecuniarily. Dur
ing the recent Gilmore season the Pavil
ion, with a capaci'y for seating over four
thousand persons, was crowded at every
performance. Du>ing the past winter
tbe rains were quite copious, and it is
not surprising that amusement-goers
declined to wade about in a deluge.
Genuine merit always receives a
genial and remunerative greeting
■ in the City of the Angels, and the
highly successful engagement of Mr.
Frederick Warde, the other day, was
a ease in point. It is not at all to
the discredit of our people that they will
' 'accord no sort of countenance to a
"suido" show, and that they sometimes
fail to ba responsive to the appeals
of the eternal variety and barnstorming
humbugs that are a sore trial to the flesh
nowadays. The population of this city
is largely composed of people who have
lived in the principal capitals of Europe
and America, and they know what's
what to an unusual degree. They are
not provincial enough to be taken in and
done for by the interminable modern
class of artists who, in the good old days,
were wont to confine their efforts to
raelodeons and to the sand dusted pene
tralias of the "Free and Easy" saloons.
Without desiring to be censorious, the
miscarriage of the Montafio prosecution
>esterday shows tbat there is something
radically wrong about the District Attor
ney's office. There is no question as to
ttie loss by the county of the large sum of
money whose wrongful appropriation
was the basis of the action, but the case
seems to have been presented in such a
bungling fashion that the jury felt it in
cumbent upon them to acquit. All that
seems necessary nowadays is to procure
the service of able counsel for the de
fence and the defeat of justice is assured.
The methods of the law would appear to
a layman to be specially devised to put
chicane and fraud above justice. It is
tbe frequent experience of the inability
of Courts to insure justice which has
popularize ! the rough and ready code
kuown as lynch law throughout ex
'.ansive regions of the United States..
The Herald is sorry to say that it
looks vary much as if an era of shaving
county warrants is about to set in.
There is, almost in the very beginningcf
th<» fincal year, $4,782 in the Road Fund.
In the Current Expanse Fund there is
$12,000. The drafts on this latter ancount
usually run from $12,000 to $15,000 a
month. This is a black exhibit, but the
latter fund will be increased somewhat
from the delinquent tax sales, whic i
will be available at the close of this
month. There is something very pecu
liar in such a system of Saance, and
something decidedly oppressive to those
who are obliged to submit to having their
warrants shaved. It is on all grounds a
custom more honored in the breach than
in th» observance.
Agricultural Depression Vis
THE OPPRESSED RURAL CLASSES.
Statistician Dodge Lays the Blame
to Overproduction and
Associated Frees Dispatches to the Herald.
Washington, March 21.—The prevail-
ing depression in American agriculture
is treated by Statistician Dodge in the
March report of the Department of Agri
culture. The prevalence of low prices is
noted, and a feeling of discouragement
in rural circles throughout the world is
indicated. It has been especially se
vere in Great Britain, and is the sub
ject of complaint, discussion and
official investigation in Germany,
France, Italy and other coun
tries. It is present in monarchies
and republica under divers currencies
and economic eyetems, but it is less
severe here than in other countries.
The main cause of low prices iB referred
to tbe inexorable law of supply
and demand. Corn and wheat and
other staples are cheap because
of over production. Immigration
has increased the population five millions
in ten years. The intercontinental areas
have been carved into farms, free to na
tives and foreigners, opening millions of
acres to cultivation.
Dodge save while there is an excess of
pruductiou of a few staples like wheat,
etc., there are insufficient supplies cf
many other necessary products, and a
total absence of scores of others which
should furnish profitable employment to
rural labor. There is a too narrow range
of cropping. Diversification is essential
to agricultural salvation. There are im
ports coßting $240,000,000 per annum of
agricultural products, which should ba
produced here. These are sugar, ani
mals and their products, fibres, fruits
and nuts, barley, leaf tobacco and wines.
Farmers are suffering for the want of
hundreds of millions of dollars that the
sweat of their brows and the dextarity
of their hands might produce out of raw
materials in scores of old and new in
Another serious cause of depression,
he says, is the exorbitant share of the
farmers' profits taken by middlemen and
carriers. The army "f dealers in futures
disturb the natural flow of trade, check
exportation by a temporary rise to be
followed by lower prices and
greater fluctuations. Speculators de
press prices when the garnors are
full, and boom them when the farmers
have nothing to sell. At present the
couutry is infested with pestilent swarms
of non-producers. The curse of specula
tion blights and consumes the result of

Tne French murderer victimizing
Uoiham Hotel men.
New Yonk, March 21.—1t is now for
the first time positively asserted by, Che
police that Eyraud, the French mur
derer, has been in this city and stopped
at different hotels under various aliases,
being finally located for two weeks at the
Hotel America. He registered without
giving place, under the name of Avraid.
About March Sth he ied, owing a $40
board bill and several ten-dollar notes
which he had borrowed from guests
whose confidence he had won by nis
affable manner. He said he was a
metchant in Guaymas, Mexico, and
spoke the Spanish language bo fluently
and was so well versed in business mat
ters that no one doubted hia asser
tion. About Match Sth he dis
appeared, and the proprietors still
retain bis trunk, which has since been
overhauled by the French detectives and
Innpector Byrnes's men, with the hopt>
of finding some criminating evidence.
Lexers await him at the general post
office, and uetectives guard the place
night and day in the hope that some one
will call to chum tbem who may answer
his description, for the letters are ad
dressed under various names correspond
ing wilh the aliases he has given at dif
feient times. His departure is be ieved
to have been caused by tho arrival
in the city of the French detectives.
These detectives have since traced him
to Montreal and afterwards to the lied
River country on bis way to California or
Mexico. The French officers are close
on his trail. Tbe New York police per

McAuliffe and Carroll Put Up
a Good Fight.
JARROLL FAIRLY KNOCKED OUT.
McAuliffe Suffers Most Punishment,
but lifts In on Carroll's Mouth
at the Right Moment.
Associated Press Dispatches to The Herald
San Francisco, March 21. —The
purse offered by the California Athletic
Club for the contest between Jack
McAuliffe and Jimmy Carroll, which
took place at the California Athletic Club
tonight, amounted to $3,000, of which
$500 was to go to the loser. In - addition
to this sum each principal had posted
$5000 on the fight, making the total sum
which would fall into the hands of the
winner $12,500. As seconds, Carroll
selected Martin Mnrphy and Florrie
Bennett. McAuliffe announced that
Billy Madden and Jack Dampsey would
be in his corner. Hiram Cook was
selected as referee. Owing to some
rumors afloat yesterday that the fight
was not to be a genuine one, President
Fulda last night informed Carroll and
McAuliffe thai if at any time during tbe
contest there was any evidence of
"faking," tbe fight would be stopped and
the men thrown out of the ring.
Previous to the contest an effort waß
made to pass a resolution instructing the
Board ot Directors to arrange a match
between Joe McAuliffe and Peter Jack
son, but the club decided to leave the
matter in the hands of the directors. It
was nearly 9 o'clock when the contest
ants, accompanied by their seconds, ap
peared in the ring. McAuliffi was tbo
first to skip over the ropes. Both pugil
ists were received with enthusiasm. Tne
weights were announced as follows:
McAuliffe, 134J2 ; Carroll, 135'i'. Time
was called at 9:10.
First Round —McAuliffe opened with a
rush, but Carroll escaped by dodging.
McAuliffe reached Carroll's neck several
times with his right before the round
Sec mil Round—Carroll opened by a
rush and jaobed McAuliffe in the jaw
several times. McAuliffe returned a Uut
right-hand blow in Carroll's ribs, aud
followed it up with a swing on the neck.
Carroll countered with a hard left-hander
en Mac's jaw.
Third Round —Mac led out with his
left, catching Carroll under tbe chin.
He repeated ibis before Carroll had re
covered from tbe first shock, and a clinch
followed. Carroll then tried a hard
swing, but McAuliffe dodged.
Fourth Round—McAuliffe reached Car
roll's ear with his ngbt, aud then gave
him a vicious upper-cut with his left.
McAuliffe made a half-dozen terrific
lunges,all of which Carroll escaped until
just before the round closed, when he
received a sharp rap in the ribs.
Iv the fifth round McAuliffe aimed for
Carroll's jaw, but received a hard jab ou
the mouth, which sent him down on his
knees. He rose at once, and several

'Carroll in the jaw with a hard rignt
hander. McAuliffe continued to play
for his opponent's wind and reached
there several times with marvelous
Seventh Round—McAuliffe continued
the same tactics aud landed two more
left-hand blows on Carroll's body.
In the eighth round there was little
done till near the close, when there was
a sharp rally, in which Carroll received
Ninth Round —In this round there
was another hot rally, in which Carroll
brought a little blood from MeAulilfe's
forehead. McAuliffe again rushed the
Iv the tenth round McAuliffe lauded
on Carroll's ribs sev j ral times, though
the blows were not hard. McAuliffe had
a narrow escape from a swinging right
hander, which just grazed his ear.
Eleventh Round—McAuliffe opened
the round with a hard left-hander on
Carroll's stomach, but received in return
a terrific jab in the mouth.
Twe'fth Rjuud—This was the hottest
ronnd of the fight so far. There was a
■ot rally, followed oy a clinch, in which
the men fell heavily to the floor, Mc-
Auliffe on top. Carroll rose, and some
terrific slogging bt close quarters fol
lowed, until both men were very groggy.
Carroll scoied a clear knock-Jo*u by
landing on McAuliffa's jaw.
In the thirteenth round both men
fought hard for a knock-out, though very
tired. McAuliffe did most of the rush
ing, but just before the round closed
Carroll gave him a blow on the jaw
which almost S9nt him to the fl >or.
Fifteenth Round —McAuliffe found
Carroll's wind hard just before the roun
closed. Carroll lorced matters, caught
Mac heavy in the wind and again on the
jaw. The latter saved himself from
lurther punishment by a clinch.
Little was done in the sixteenth. The
seventeenth round opened with honors
about even. Both men were evidently
very tired. The men clinched in the
eighteenth, and as they broke away
Carroll uppercut McAuliffe viciously and
then gave him several right and leit
handers which staggered him percep
Nineteenth Round—But little damage
was done until just at the close, when
Mac reached Carroll's ribs three times,
and each time received a sharp counter
which staggered him.
In the twentieth Mac resumed his
punching operations on Carroll's body,
with but little effect, however. Carroll
feinted several times, but made little
effort to lead.
Twenty-first Round—Mac landed a
hard right-hander on Carroll's jaw, and
attempted to follow it up with his left,
but Carroll escaped by a clever di.-dge. A
moment later, however, McAuliffe
reached his neck, and then gave him a
left-hand swing in the ribs.
In the twenty-second Mac again
reached Carroll's neck. The laitar tried
to return the blow, but Mac jumped
away. Carroll next staggered back from
In the twenty-eighth there was some
sharp fighting at close quarters, in
which McAuliffe had the advantage. He
ponnded Carroll about the neck and
bod y until the latter staggered under the
The next few rounds were generally in
McAuliffa's favor. At the thirty-eighth
round the men, while not strong, were
both in fair condition, and there seemed
every prospect that tbe fight would last
some time longer. Carroll commenced
to pound away at Mac's face and jaw.
He reached his mark more than half
a dozen times, and Mac was evidently
becoming dazed. He struck out weakly,
but Carroll would get away safe and come
back with another jab in Mac's face,
McAuliffe recovered a little in the next
ronnd, but in the forty-second Carroll
gave him an ugly upper-cut and then
planted several more hard ones on his
nose and face, causing blood to floW
freely and making McAuliffe stagger.
In the forty-third round McAuliffe was
plainly getting weaker, and a number
more blows on his jaw from Carroll's
fist did not improve his condition.
Carroll continued to gain the advan
tage, and in the next three rounds
pjunded McAuliffe on the jaw and in the
mouth and nose until it seemed the
latter would go out every moment. Mc-
Auliffe, though very weak, returned the
blows when he could, but they seemed
to have little 6<fect. .
At the opening of the forty-seventh
round Carroll etill acted on the aggres
sive, but when the round was about over
Mac seemed to revive a little. The men
were fighting hard at close quarters,
though both men were so that
they cHild scarcely stand UpoD their
feet. Finally Mac's right fist came in
contact with Carroll's jaw, and the latter
went down. He rose in three or four
seconds, and Mac started in to finish
hipa, though it was difficult to say which
man was the weaker. Mac's face waß
well covered with blood, but there was
very little on Carroll's. Mac finally
caught Carroll in the mouth, and sent
him down on the floor with a thump.
Ten seconds were counted off, but there
was still no movement of his body, and
his seconds had to carry him to his cor
ner. Mac was declared the victor amid
tho enthusiastic cheering oi the specta

Testimony Utveu at the Prellmlnar jr
Yesterday morning the preliminary
examination into the charges of murder
preferred against W. 0. Chormicle and
W. A. Gardiner was resumed before
Justice Austin. The cross-examination
of the complainant, Joseph Olme, con
sumed the larger part of the morning
session, and at the close cf his testimony
Thcma« Riley was called to the stand.
He testified that he wbb a farmer and re
sided at Gardenia, near Comoton, but
went up to the Oastnc canon on the 27th
ult.,at Walton's request, for the purpose
of assisting him in the erection of his
shanty. Walton met him at the switch
and they went up to Jenkins's house to
gether, remaining there all night. Next
day he visited the site where the shanty
was to be built, and saw that the lumber
which Walton said he had hauled to the
place, had been removed an 1 thrown
over the fence on to Jenkins's land. Soon
after S. Cook, who had been summoned
by Walton, who had borrowed a horse
from Jenkins for the purpose of riding
over to see the former, arrived and he
and the witness went to work to pile the
lumber on the other side of the fence.
While they were thus engaged Chormicle
approached them and told them to de
sist, aud after he had gone they did so.
The witness then started across the
week and went up the hill, but returned
in about one hour afterwards and saw
the shooting. He then corroborated
Ohne's story of the affair in every partic
ular, and reiterated his testimony as
given at the Coroner's inquest, about
finding Walton dead and carrying Cook
and the dead man down to Jennings's
Juan Borillo, an old Mexican, was tbe
next witness. He created a considerable
sensation, when asked his age, by stat
ing tbat be was 100 years old. He bad
lived sixteen years in the Castac cafion,
and knew tbe defendant. He was in
charge of Juan Liebe's house on the day
of the shooting, and saw the whole af
fair. He also repeated tbe story he told
before the Coroner's jury, and was posi
tive that neither of the dead men nor
Obne exhibited any weapon or fired a
■ingle shot at the defendant.
At tbe close of hia testimony conrt ad
