The opening of La Grande atation
yesterday was a gala affair. There was
a very large attendance of people, and
the speeches were crisp and interesting,
tbe exercises greatly enjoyed by all, and
the fine lunch eet out for tbe invited
guests was discussed with avid satis
faction by an army of people with ex
The latest news is to the effect that
Siam haa completely backed down to
the French, and will accede to all their
demands. It is said that Lord Dufferin,
under instructions from the British
government, has brought about this
heroic solution of the Siamese difficul
ties. Her interest in the matter is to
preserve Siam as a bnlfer state between
the French possessions in Cochin-China
and the English possessions in Burmab.
Tbe Emperor William baa not only
quit making foolish epeeehes but he is
coming to tbe front aa the perpetrator
of witticisms. The telegrams elsewhere
give his caustic comment on England's
attitude in the Franco-Siamese em
broglio. His idea that England will
never brush up against a first-class
power like France or the United States ;
or that, if she does so, her boasted
naval supremacy wilt go up like a Boap
bubble, is as witty as it is wise. How
ever, England will escape from the pos
sibility of euch a contretemps by blus
tering and subsiding.
Kaiser William says that Great
Britain's preßtige aa monarch of the seas
would burst like a eoap bubble if ahe
got into conflict with any of the first
class nations of Europe or with the
United States. Evidently the emperor's
estimate of the value of the "queen'e
navee" for battle purposes has been
greatly modified by the ease with which
the Victoria was sent to the bottom
dnring a peaceful manoeuvre. Many
competent naval officers coincide with
William in hie estimate of the value of
these monßter battle-ships for active
service on the ocean in war times.
The only bank in Los Angeles that
failed to resume after a careful examina
tion of its atatus—the City bank—ap
pears to have been a very rotten institu
tion, and its affaire seem to have been
managed with a conspicuous lack of
direct business methods. The extent to
which its president and directors dipped
Into ita money chest is the subject of in
vidious comment in business circles. In
this reßpect it afforded a marked con
trast to the other banks of Loa Angeles

Tng people of Kansas City have en
tered a practical protest against Denver
sending their impoverished laborers,
thrown out of work by the closing of the
mines of Colorado, to burthen their
city. The first deportation was met at
the boundaries of the Btate and forced
to move On. If the other citiea meet
these unfortunato people with the same
kind of hospitality, what will become of
them? As there are perhaps thirty
thousand of these penniless outcasts in
Colorado who will be helped to leave the
itate, there is dancer that they may re
taliate on this kind of reception and or
ganise themselves into marauding bands
throughout the western conntry. These
men are turned into hungry tramps by
no fault of theirs. Tbey are willing to
work, but in the face of the present
stagnation nobody wants them. This
is a development in the labor question
which woald justify congress in making
large appropriations for necesaary forti
fications and the building of'the new
navy, so as to give employment to the
army of men who have been thrown out
of work by the shutting down of the
ONE INVITING SPOT.
The Herald has developed a theory
that ia perfectly tenable, and is borne ont
by precedent. The panic of 1873 waa
really the beginning of a certain kind of
settlement on thia coast, and particu
larly in Southern California. Great
numbers of people in the throes follow
ing npon the suspension of Jay Cooke &
Co. concluded that the process of revival
in an old established country would-be
a slow one, and tMat the opportunities
for making money in the east wonld nec
essarily be dilatory. In fact, it was not
until 1878 that signs of a businesa re
vival began to manifest themselves in
the eastern states. It was heralded by
an increased activity in the iron busi
ness. This is always the forerunner of
the resurrection ef business; and five
years after Jay Cooke's failure the roll
ing mills of Chicago and Pittsburg be
gan to show an increased demand for
From 1873 really dated the first active
movement of settlement in Southern
California, and notably in Los Angeles.
Tens of thousands of people thronged
out to this coast who saw no immediate
future in their own section. It is true
that we were prevented from realizing
the full benefits of this movement, and
that the great activity of 1873 and 1874
was, in the fall of 1875, submerged un
der the disasters following upon the
failure of the Bank of California. That
incident was distinctively exceptional,
as were others of a purely local char
The failure of the Bank of California
was followed, in thia city, by tbe failure
of the bank of Temple & Workman, an
institution which had been backed by
immense capital, but which was
run substantially on the same bueiness
principles as those which have charac
terized the City bank. The immense
defalcationa of the Temple & Workman
bank were followed np by the celebrated
drouth of 1876-77 and by the smallpox
epidemic of the same season. It really
looked as if all the vials of wrath of an
outraged Providence were being poured
out on this section at once. Loa Angeles
stood the shock splendidly, and was one
of the first cities in the United States to
recover from afflictions that were as
manifold as Job's sores. Sustaining the
calamities of 1870 77, following upon the
financial disasters of 1875, in 1880 the
Angel city took the bit in her mouth;
and, by tbe middle of the decade, her
population had swollen from 10,300 in
1830 to upwards of fifty thousand in
1885. That there' waa a great deal of
real estate speculation from 1835 to the
closing months of 18S7 cannot be
donbted. A reaction was inevitable,
and the so-called "boom" collapsed.
It ia a notable circumstance in the
history of Los Angeles that all the ex
pansion attendant npon that period was
rectified —the water squeezed out of it,
so to speak—without so much aa a sin
gle business or bank failure. This was
not only remarkable but highly credit
able. Then began our era of produc
tion. Having dropped all onr real
estate vagaries, onr people Bet abont

That the great financial and business
disturbances in the eaat will result in
sending us a moat desirable clase of
population by tens of thouaanda let no
man doubt. It is only a question of
time when the Nicaragua canal will be
built. The present conditions of finan
cial syncope onght to impel congress to
hurry forward this great work. The
time for picayune buaineaa haa long past.
If France can stagger along, with only
thirty-five millions of people, nnder five
times the debt of tbe United States ; if
the kingdom of Great Britain and Ire
land can get along under a load of debt
at least four times that of the United
States, we Bee no reason why this coun
try should not waken up and catch one
of theae sublime Democratic impulses
that added tbe Louisiana territory,
Texas and the Pacific coast to the
United States. On the present occasion
there is no proposition of adding terri
tory to this country, but simply tbe
adding to the commercial facilitiea of
tbe world, which will give to California
and the Pacific coast generally a new
and beneficent development.
In addition to the inevitable develop
ment, on an international and transconti
nental Bcale, that lies ahead for Lob An
geles, it would be altogether amiss to
omit from the great sources of wealth
that lie to our hands the mineral depos
its that are within reach of, and which
will be contributory to this city. They
have been under the eye of prospectors
for forty years. In many instances they
are marked extravagantly high—that is
the yield, if expectations are realized,
would rank in enormous sums —and
there is actually no reason to suppose
that tbe imagination cute an unusually
large figure in these estimates.
With a climate that ie admittedly finer
than that of the Riviera; with a variety
and prodigality of production rivaled no
where else on earth ; with a railway de
velopment already accomplished no
where else approached on the Pacific
coast, why should not Los ADgeles be
superior to the ephemeral financial fluc
tuations of the hour? With splendidly
buttressed banks and a self-reliant peo
ple, with possibilities that are only in
their infancy, the Angel City and ite
tributary territory may well turn an in

THE EXTRA SESSION.
As tbe time for tbe assembling of con
gress at the called session approachea,
the country is inundated with all sorts
of views from all sorts of people as to
the exact legislation the country re
quires to cure its present ills. The
Sherman eilver law has but few friends;
but the great majority of the silver men
are of one accord on the proposition
that the Sherman law should not be re
pealed without some compensatory
measure that will favor tbe white metal.
Crisp will undoubtedly be re-elected
speaker of the house, and his views are
closely in line with those of the admin
istration on the financial issue. He be
lieves in the unconditional repeal of tbe
Sherman act. Whether his views g>
farther, and favor independent legisla
tion to sustain silver, nobody knows.
The presumption ia that he will be trae
to the principles enunciated by the
Chicago platform, and favor any sound
measure that will tend to preserve the
parity of the two metals. He is
doubtless opposed to free coinage
under the existing conditions of
the silver market. In this respect
he is in accord with Cleveland,
and he will select tbe committees hav
ing to do with thut subject iv consonance
with his views. The chairmanship of tbe
coinage committee may be left to
Bland out of respect to the silver men,
but the committee itself will undoubt
edly be overwhelmingly opposed to free
The reform and readjustment of the
tariff will undoubtedly assume a con
spicuous place in the work of the ses
sion. The McKinley law is at the
bottom of tne great manufacturing and
industrial disturbances that have led up
to the financial troubles that have
convulsed the country. Just as soon as
congress indicates how far it will go in
reforming the tariff that has enabled a
comparatively few capitalists to create
immense monopolies and rob the people
for their benefit, the business of the
country will at once settle into a healths
position. The industries of the country
will take courage and resume the tone
they had before the McKinley law dis
located all the legitimate avenuoa to
permanence in business.
Whilst we have no doubt that tbe new
house will develop at tbe start greatly
diversified views, we are satisfied that
In the end tbe members will settle down
to a harmonious consideration of all the
great questions that will come before
That ie a very strange reason that
Architect O'lionrke, of the United
States Treasury Department, gives for
not commencing work on the new post
office in San Francieco. He has held
back, he says, because Chairman Bank
bead of tbe house committee on public
buildings and grounds has threatened
that if work is commenced he will ex
plode a sensation, with reference to the
puichase of tbe site, that will create
public consternation. Everybody, who
bas given any thought to the matter,
knows that the site, purchased for over
one million dollars,wonld not bare been
selected against the protests of
nine-tenths of tbe people of San
Francisco and in opposition to the
report of Mr. Gibaon, who had
been sent out from Washington to make
an exhaustive examination of-the foun
dation of the site, if there had not been
some jobbery in the matter that would
not look well if exposed. That is the
very reason why the work should be
commenced if it will open to public
light tbe secret crookedness that was at
the bottom of its selection. The people
have a right to know why a former
swamp was chosen on which to erect a
costly public building.
Everybody seems to be pleased with
the appointment of ex-Governor Per
kins to the vacancy in the United Statea
aenate. Governor Markham did more
to popularize his administration by this
appointment than he haa effected by
any other executive act. Indeed, his
popularity had gone down to a very low
ebb by some of his vetoea of measures
passed by the last legislature; and his
peculiar party associates and personal
relations to some of the most objection
able of the Republican machine man
agers, had done him groat harm in the
estimation of the public. But this ap
pointment was a ten-strike, and will
very materially help to place him in the
good graces of the best elements of his
own party and of the people generally.
We all look for work from Governor
Perkins in his new position that will be
of advantage to his state and to tbe
country; He ie a roan of eminent busi
ness qualifications, knows intimately all
the wants of the state, is keen, cour
teous and able, and will devote all bis
fine talents to advancing the beat in
terests of his constituents.
The administration of the world's fair
is between two fires in the Sunday clos
ing business. The federal authorities
want the fair closed, but a etate judge
haa issued an injunction against closing
the gates of the park in which the ex
hibition is held, on the ground that it is
a public park and the people must have
ingress into it on Sundays as well as all
other days. The directors have decided
to leave the gates open todVy, and will
answer the injunction tomorrow. As the
people have shown by their refusal to
visit the fair in considerable numbers on
Sundays that they do not want it open
on that day, the directors are now in
favor of closing it. We presume that
the injunction will bo satisfied if the
gates to tbe park are left open.

Receiver Krodtbeck and Mr Har

Yesterday afternoon the depositors ol
the City bank continned their meeting
of Friday in relation to taking steps to
wards protecting their interests. The
second meeting was held in the office of
J. F. Jones in the Fn'iton block. There
was quit* a large number of the deposit
ors present and they all seem to be
aroused and propose to get as much of
their money as is possible.
A goad deal of general discussing and
proposing of the proper means to be pur
sued took place but the depositors ended
by appointing a committee of five with
power to act and with whose procedure
they will agree. The committee con
sisted of Messrs. B. Gordan, I. L, Loh
man, E. W. Grannis, Telfair Creighton
and N. Chronis.
Messrs. Jones and Allen were engaged
as attorneys by the depositors to look
after tbeir interests.
A number of wild expressions were
made at a meeting held on Friday in re
gard to the various shares, of tbe condi
tion of and about those now managing
the bank. One of the alleged complaints
was against the retention by Mr, Bi'odt
beckof Mr. F. W. Burnett as his at
torney while receiver of the bank. The
depositors thought that Mr. Burnett
should not be retained because his former
law partner, Mr. T. E. Gibbon, had been
tbe legal advisor of the City bank and of
Mr. A. D. Childress, its president.
Mr. Jones assured a Hbrald reporter
yesterday that this complaint- did not
exist. The depositors, he said, had no
fanlt whatever to find with either Mr.
Brodtbeck or Mr. Burnett. The con
duct of the receivership has been satis

Mr. Burnett should not act as the at
At the meeting yesterday it was
stated that the condition of the bank
was in a poor shape, and to use one of
the expressions, was "rotten through
and through." There wero eot suffi
cient assetts to meet the liabilities. It
was also said that the majority of tbe
stockholders had overdrawn their ac

Mr. Brodtbeck was seen at the City
barik yesterday in regard to the matter,
and made the following statement of
the facts of which he i 3 crelibly in
Ta.e intended action of the depositors
of the City bank was not due to dissatis
faction or objection to the receiver or
his acts as such, but is a move to insti
tute proceeding against the stockholders
and officers of the Innk for tneir liabil
ity to them as fieir creditors. Mr.
Brodtbeck, in his capacity as receiver,
can j-it take such action against stock
holders. A few days ago the receiver
retdered full aceounl; of the aifairß of
the City bank, and his acts to date and

office and is open to the inspection of
depositors and tbe public. He retained
Mr. F. W. Burnett as his attorney" oV
canee be knew hint many years in the
east and bas been his attorney and
counselor since he commenced practice
here. The only possible ground for<*>m
plaint against Mr. Burnett is thsU he
had been in partnership with Mr. Gib
bon, who had been tbe attorney of the
bank. The books of the bank show that
Mr. Burnett is not indebted to the bank
or in any way interested in any of its
affairs. Jndge Shaw, with full knowl
edge of the facts, opposed the retaining
of Mr. Bumott as attorney for the re
Mr. Burnett was aho spoken with and
claimed that an injustice had been done
him in the publications of yesterday.
"During my partnership with Mr.
Gibbon," he said, "I had no more con
nection with the affairs of the bank than
did yourself. Beyond assisting Mr.
Gibbon in court with several cases I did
nothing whatever to help conduct its
"I have never owed the bank a single
dollar, and in fact did not even deposit
there, with the exception of a few dol
lars. I have alwayjs been Mr. Brodt
beck'a attorney fot the past two years,
and- it was at his request that I have
acted as his advisor during his receiver
ship of the institution."
Mr. Gibbon was also seen and asked
regarding the statement made at tbe
creditors' meeting as to an indebtedness
to the bank which was stated to be
secured only by one lot conveyed by
Mr. Childress to Mr. Brodtbeck. Mr.
Gibbon stated that he supposed refer
ence had been made to a note oi $5000,
which he at one time made in the pur
chase of certain property in which N. T.
and A. D. Childress had an interest.
In the course of the transaction W. T.
and A. D. Childress had taken all of the
property and had assumed the payment
of this note.
The note, Mr. Gibbon said he had
understood, w.as secured by collateral
deposited by VV. T. and A. D. Cnildress,
and that Mr. Childress had conveyed
the let in question to Mr. Brodtbeck us
Mr. Gibbon also stated that he had
never received one dollar from tbe bank
or any other person for the note, and
that the property for which it was given
had, as stated, gone out of his hands
and he had been relieved from responsi
bility by the agreement of VV. T. and A.
D. Childress to pay it, of which every
person connected with the bank was in
A part of the collateral deposited by
the Cliildreeses to secure the payment
of the note was, he believed, valued at
something like $4000. The sum of the
collateral he did not know the value of,
and the real estate which bad been
added to the security by Mr. Childreße
had a market value of somstbing over
Mr. Gibbon was also of the opinion
that tiie note would be paid in full
when it became due.

IT IS WORTH SEEING.
The aiijhta to Bo Been at the Frolt Mar-
ket on the Plaae.
Few people are aware of tbe fact that
an old fashioned fruit market may be
seen in the early morning houra in the
neighborhood of the plaza.
Thia ignorance ia probably due to the
fact that- with the exception of the early
morning policeman and thoee whose
business forcea them to attend, bnt few
of the inhabitanta of tbe city are ont of
bed at the hour when the market ie in
full swing. For soon after 4 o'clock
when the rising sun turns the dark blue
of the horizon into a delicate pink, the
country wagons begin to came in.
There ia alwaya an early comer who,
making np hia mind to get the beat
position for hia fruit, rattlea along in hia
heavy-laden wagon and leada tbe way
for hia fellow merchants.
Then comes a regular rush. Carts and
wagons of every discription come rattling
in, and by the time tbe firet rays of the
morning sun gild the palms in the plaza,
the whole street around the little green
; enclosnra is covered with every kind of
frnit grown in Southern California.
Watermelons and canteloapea are
there by the cartloads* in such quanti
ties that the ignorant would expect the
half of them to remain nnaold. Huge
boxea of plums, grapes and prunes are
dieplayed side by Bide with piles of lus
cious looking peaches and apricots.
Tne superficial observer would think
there was enengh frnit to supply the
whole town. And thie is really the fact.
People who buy their fruit in the atorea
of Los Angelea, fresh every morning,
although not aware of it. are supplied
from tlie Plaza market. For punctually
at 5 o'clock the ranchera have tbeir
fruit displayed to tbe best advantage,
and the" retail merchants and street
peddlera begin to arrive.
Then everything is bustle and con
fusion. The crowd is so great that the
services of three stalwart policemen are
needed to keep tbe buyers moving.
The retail men as a rule have their
particular favorites, from whom they
make their purchases, and they get
through their business methodically
and without much digpnte.
But the peddlera are very different.
For tbe most part they are French and
Italian, who scrutinize every peach and
every separate piece of frnit tbey buy.
Trie Italians in particular are the
hardest customers to please. They bar
gain and shake their heads and go
away, only to return and go through the
came pantomime, generally winding up
by buying their Iruit at the original
price, not, however, without calling on
Heaven to witness that they are ruined
By 7 o'clock everybody has finished.
The lruit has disappeared and so has
chattering crowd o! buyers, and by the
time Lob Angeles ia awake and eating
breakfast nothing is to be seen in the
plaza but scattered scraps of packing
paper and a few overripe peaches, which
are soon gathered up by the morning
