The Blver Bed to Be Straightened.
Vineyard* folate Wall.
Santa Ana, Bept. 12.—Orange county
has never been in » more prosperous
condition than at the present time.
The action of tbe supervisors yester
day in regard to the river matter was a
wise one, snd is heartily approved by
ell. Fifteen thousand dollars will be
spent in cleaning and straightening the
channel and preventing overflows.
The territory which bas heretofore
been overflowed is tbe richest part of
the county, and tbe money spent in
completing tbe work will come back in
increased productions the first ysar.
The work will give employment to a
large force of men, and the money will
he circulated at home.
Crops of all kinds have been large
tbis season—the largest in tbe history
of the county. A million dollars will
be received from the barley crop alone.
Sugar beets have proven a success here,
and from $60,000 to $90,000 will be re
ceived from tbis source. Next year
Orange county will have a sugar beet
factory of her own.
Despite the fact tbat croakers say the
vine disease Is still here, it is a fact
that tbe vineyard industry never looked
better. Many wineries are st work
making wine this year.
While every part of Orange county is
moving ahead in the right direction,
Santa Ana is experiencing prosperous
times, only equalled by the boom days.
At least a dozen new residences are in
course of erection. A piokle factory will
soon be started, and in any other im
provements are being made.
Next month will be one long to be re
membered here, aa during tbat month
tbe fair and races will be held here, and
hundreds of visitors will be in tbe city.
Our people should prepare to receive
them royally. Tbe streets should be
eleansd up, and the attractive city
should be made to look more so.
The fair directors have arranged for a
great race meeting. Tbe agricultural

United States Deputy Marshal James
D. Paris returned from Lob Angeles last
evening with 10 warrants for tbe arrest
of Chinamen to be taken before Judge
Hose and sentenced for deportation. The
warrants are returnable next Friday and
as he has 5 out of tbe 10 nnder arrest it
is more than likely that he will be able
to report the whole of the list to the
court. One of tbe warrants is for Moch
Chuck, wbo rifled a safe in Chinatown
of $1200 in money and about $000 in

back to this city and have the county
stand the expense of atrial and then a
term in state prison, or to tnrn him
over to the federal authorities and have
him deported? Tbe Chinese are seri

be as follows:
To furnish employment for those out
of work and relieve suffering.
To give any statistics or information
of value to tbe workingmen.
Also to add many other beneficial
features from time to time after the in
stitution became self-supporting. It is
not intended aa a charitable institution
in any sense of the word.
A board of examiners, of prominent
men, to be appointed, whose duty ehall
be to examine into tbe finances and
workings of the institution, at any time
desired or required, tbat no question
may arise as to tbe honest disposition of
all funds; also to act as an advisory
board. This work to be given free.
The bureau could be rnn for some
time at least by two men. One, say, for
secretary and treasurer, and tbe other
president and general manager.
Subscriptions to be solicited by au
thorised canvassers principally for work ;
also for some money to meet the few ex
penses accruing for office fixtures and
salaries. This work to he given free if
possible. A certain amount subscribed
each month in work or funds
entitles tbe donor to one or more
votes, according to tbe amount,
on all measures coming up for decision
during eaid month, a majority to rule.
In case of any subscription or donation
not being published, the same should
be reported at once to the manager.
All matters pertaining to the bureau
presented and discussed either by per
son or by letter shall be considered as
public and open to publication and
kept on record. Records of applications
for work and all employment given, as
well as receipts and expenses, shall be
kept in books for that purpose, and also
be* published from time to time. Work

The aim will always be to obtain good
wages, when possible, but ecarsely any
offer will be refused, for those out of
means or credit, for tbeir meals and
lodging. Two dollars ($2), if possible,
will be obtained for ten (10) hours
work for all common labor, and the
wages now ruling for work in the
trades. It is not the intention to have
trade unions control the bureau in any
sense, though I believe tbe unions do
good work in certain directions. Boy
cots, strikes and all impediments to
business and work to be discouraged,
and settlement by arbitration advised
Public work to be furnished by
tbe city, county, state and tbe United
States to be encouraged by every honor
able means; said work to be let out by
day's work, in lieu of contract, in charge
of a superintendent appointed by the
head of each department. In this way
we believe the workman will be better
able to obtain hie just dues.
