The Sacramento Bee aud some of tbe
northern membera of the State Board of
Health are raising a ureat hullabaloo
about | ie claim made by tlie Los Angeles
membe t of that body that tho popula
tion of this city is now at leaet <J5,000.
1 8 their inpocent souls, 05,000 does
not begin to comprise tbe population of
tho Angel City. When Mr. Porter's
censu ! in 1891) gave us only fifty thou
sand three hundred and eighty our pop
ulation was easily sixty thousand. A
fair ee'imate, based on the echool census,
tbe ;as, electric, water at.d telephone
service, by any standard of comparison
excepted in any other city, would give
ns fally 75 000. And the cry ie still they
come! Our contemporary overlooks the
fact that we grow a Sacramento down
here every year or co. The Angel City
it strictly in the swim, and proposes to
stay there. As to onr health statistics,
if onr population was stated at anything
like the true figures, they would show
up ahead of those of any city in tbe
world, and this although multitudes of
invalids who come here from the east
for their health in the last stages of
consumption and other diseases, help to
swell the record.
THE RAINFALL IN LOS ANGELES
There are many people in Los Angeles
city and county jußt now—well, in fact,
close upon one hundred thousand of
j them —who know very little abont the
peculiarities of the weather here. Of
late years we are tempted to think that
very few of the oldest inhabitants are
capable of giving an intelligent opinion
on our meteorological condi ions. This
arises lrom the fact that the period em
braced in any weather records does not
reach back of the American occupation,
at least not in any reliable form. It was
a favorite saylne of the native Califor
niaus that beforo the advent of the
Americans they had plenty of rain, but
the assertion itself is apocryphal, and
convincing data to support it ie not
The writer is neither an old nor a
new-comer, and a close observation of
nenrlv t wenty-one years leads him to be
lieve that tbe local precipitation in Los
Angeles county has undergone a marked
change in the direction of an increased
rainfall. During Ihe past fifteen years
th* average rainfall in thia valley has
slightly exceeJed that ol the Sacra
mento valley. This will be surprising
information to many Oalilornians, who
have been wont to regard the Sicra
raento valley as a section of even re
dundant rainfall and Los Angeleß as a
dry region. This is a fact, nevertheless,
acdin some years our precipitation has
run up closely to the neighborhood of
forty inches in our valleys and mesas
and to extraordinary figures in tbe
The undoubted change in our climate
of late years—in truth it may bo only a
recurrence to some old cycle ante-dating
the American occupation and therefore
not recorded, and falling in with the old
native traditions —has been
ascribed to various causee. The writer
believes that there has been a change,
nod that he is acquainted with the two
keynotes to it. The tirst is that of cap
illary attraction. Formerly the coil of
the Botithern counties, and notably of
Lob Angelee county, was trampled by
cnuntlesa bands of horses, herds of cat
tle am' flocks of sheep, until it waß im
pacted into a Bort of surface haripan.
The disappearance of these animals, and
the breaking up of the aoii by gang
plouebe, haa brought capillary attrac
tion into play, and has thus drawn the
moisture from above to meet that from
below, each attraction gathering force
with the progress of years. Then the
enormous tree planting which baa char
acterized this section for many years
past haß greatly assisted thia tendency
to incteaae our Bupplyof moisture. Both
postulatea rest on a philosophical prin
ciple, and they afford to us very gratify
ing assurances that a drouth, in the old
sense of the words, is impossible here
after in Lob Angeles county.
A word of explanation is needed as to
the weather nomenclature of California.
The season of rain embraces a portion of
two years; and, unleea understood, ia
liable to misapprehension. Thus, the
raius generally begin about tbe middle
of November in one year and end with
May in the succeeding year. There are
frequently instances of a season of
abundant rainfall in which the tirst
noticeable rains fall about Christmas;
ami the writer remembers one year in
which the rains were held baca till the
middle of Jai apt), the last rain falling
in the let fc,» of February. The
crops that year nere notably abundant;
and the pasturage, though late, was lux
uriant. In a period ol nineteen years
there was only one precipitation that
might be called a rain in June, although
often downpours that might be called
brisk showers have been reported in
July, August, and September. Without
this explanation ol the way a Southern
California season lapses over into the
yeara .he newcomer might be apt to
pupposo that we have had two dry
years wheie W6 have only had one.
With all ilia talk about Los Anuelos
be:ng in the dry zone, as a matter ol
iact we have only had one dry year in
thie county for years and years, and
that was the season of 1876-77. With
out our explanation this would look like
two years, lv that season tho total
rainfall was only 4.Br> inches. It wae a
hard visitation hei -iitue wo were then in |
the transition period, and our cattie and j
- beep ranges had junt began to bo truns
lormed into orchards and farms. Tina
nas a littie Ie g than one-third of our
average rainfall for the p.jst fifteen
treasons. Even in that year remuneiu
live wheat crops were raised on theCen'
tinela iaudio by Air. D. Freeman and
hia lessees. There were then no accu
mulated stocks of feed, and the greed of
our sheep men had allowed their fiocka
to increase at a rate which made over
feeding inevitable. Aa a reßult, im
mense bands of sheep were driven into
Kern nud Tulare counties, to Arizona
and lo the mountains, and the real
prosperity of Los Angeloa began.
The conditions Bince 1870 have radi
cally changed. On the assumption that
we ehall have a season of retrenched
rainfall thia year, Los Angeles coanty
will be found prepared at all points.
We have immense ranges of moist, bot
tom and irrigated lands that will yield
abundantly, no matter what the rainfall
may prove to be. In addition, we have
large quantities of hay and grain in
storage which at present command a
very low price, and which will enhance
very appreciably in value.
The Herald has occasionally hinted
that it is quite probable that the present
may be a season of retrenched rainfall.
There is still plenty of time for an
abundant precipitation. But every
seneible farmer ouzht to realize that the
path of wisdom lies in an early dry
ploughing and sowing of seed. Un
LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 7. 1393.
der the existing conditions of coil and
the established capillary attraction,
abundant crops will be assured in a
majority of cases. As to our bottom
land and moist land farmers and irriga
tors, common sense would indicate that
they ought to bring every "available
acre under cultivation.
Well then, well then, the Express
insists upon the fitness of Mr. George
Arnold as a membar of the board of
police commissioners because he is a
friend of Chief Glass. We are thus
made acquainted with tho standard of
fitness for this position set up by our
ever to be esteemed contemporary, al
ways tirst in the news when it don't get
left. We are not told, however, what
either Mr. Arnold or the public tbink
about this standard of public useful
ness thus set up. The probability is
that both think that the blunder is not
improved by tbe Eipresa's later
uaucberie in its issue of yesterday. In
ail likelihood, Chief Glass himself, who
has not lately been made the subject of
a special attack, would just as lief that
tbe appointment of Mr. Arnold could
have been placed on some other ground
than that official's friendship for him,
Glass, We now know, if the Ex
press is correct, that, in addition
to Bradish, the chief has a thick aud
thin friend in Mr. Arnold. But why
not have allowed the public to find out
this fact gradually? Why give thegame
away ? If, on the other liund, Mr. Arn
old is a public epirited citizen, of Re
publican proclivities, who is ready to do
justice to the people in the administra
tion of bis trust, as well aa to Chief
Glass, without fear or favor, why put a
tag on him with Glass's name attached?
No doubt all the members of the police
board are Glass's friends, including the
dummy Democrats, but why let the pub
lic into a fact so unpleasant? Why not
keep it dark? In tine, why give occa
sion for the revival of the poignant ex
clamation : "Save me from my friends I"
There should be something very ex
citing in naval circles in the latitude of
Brazilian waters very shortly. The Nie
theroy and America, with the torpedo
boats hotßted on the latter, ought to do
some good work ehortly, or Peixoto will
be greatly out of pocket. The practice
with tbe Hotchkieß and other gune on
board these veseelß is said to have been
very good, but the armored flagship of
De Mello, the Aquidcban, would appftar
to have the advantage. It wae stated
this formidable vessel was greatly in
jured during the passage of the forts at
the entrance of the harbor at Rio de
Janeiro, but this must be taken with a
grain of salt. It can be cent to keep
company with the yarn that De .Mello
waa really going couth. It is bo long
since we have had anything exciting on
land or on sea anywhere that a dash ol J
real adventure and empriße Bcmewhsre :
is needed to stir the blood of the world ,
into lively action.
Now that the people of Los Angeleß
have resolved to make San Francisco the
exclusive ecene of their labors, they
ought to strain every nerve to see that
their effort shall be a memorable one.
The time ie coming when the great mid
winter fair will open, and we should be
on hand early. We are fortunate in
having, in the person of Mr. Wiggins,
a gentleman who can give our mid
winter fair committee invaluable sugges
tions in the line of an effective display.
Los Angeles and all of the southern
counties ought to put their beat foot for
