THE COLD SPELL MODERATES
REGULATION OF SHIPMENTS
Conflicting Estimates of Damage
Done by Frost—Reports From
the Producing Districts
Reports of the effect of the cold spell
upon the orange and lemon crop were
more favorable yesterday than on the
day before, and a more hopeful view of
the matter prevailed among: interested
parties. It will be at least three or four
days yet before accuracy can be ap
proximated with certainty in esti
mates of the damage, und perhaps as
many weeks before the full effects of the
frost are felt.
in the meantime estimates of damage
are ranging from less than ten per cent
to a third of the entire crop, and sec
tional reports vary from no damage at
all to two-thirds. The present yield be
ing the largest ever grown here a full
ordinary crop of good fruit still remains
apparently uninjured, and the tiling
most needed is Immediate concert of ac
tion by all concerned to prevent the
Shipment of frozen fruit and the de-
moralitatton of a good market, which
would cause outlay and expense far in
excess of any temporary profit.
All available sources of information
were again sought yesterday in the en
deavor to arrive at the truth of the situ
ation. Marshall V. Hartranft, secretary
of the Fruit Growers and Shippers' As
sociation of Southern California, took 0
conservative view of the situation, and
was of the opinion that to estimate one
third of the crop as being damaged by
frost was too high. He said:
"We have had some cold weather,
which has done some damage. The crop
of oranges In many groves has been en
tirely destroyed, but we have several
thousand carloads of oranges In sight
that have not been damaged at all.
I call to mind the fact that after
the last freeze one large shipping con
cern pronounced some very important
groves ln Riverside as damaged, and un
fit for shipment, and purchased iheir re
lease from contract. Within six weeks
the oranges from those very groves were
selling at $2.50. f.o.b. California, and
were shipped with an absolute guaran
tee to be free from frost, and were ac
cepted by the eastern trade as such,
there being no damage done by frost in
those particular groves. The same will
prove to he the ease this year, and while
our estimate is open to the same question
as yours Is, yet we believe that not over
a tenth of the fruit has been damaged."
A. H. Naftzger, president of the South
ern California Fruit exchange, thought
that the. estimate of one-third of the
crop lost by frost was altogether too high
and that anyone who gave an estimate
and withheld his name wanted to bear
the market. His statement that the
thermometer fell to 18 degrees and there
abouts for ten hours in January, '94,
should be corrected to "18 degrees and
stayed below freezing point for ten
"The thermometer is, however, no cri
terion of damage done." said he, "and 1
don't believe a third of the crop is frozen.
1 doubt if there is ten per cent frozen.
Yes, I believe there has been some dam
age, but how to measure it I don't know.
Monday may have been the coldest day
in years in Los Angeles, but the wind
blew all night at Cucamonga, Colton and
Covlna. As soon as I heard that I knew
the orange crop there was all right even
If the thermometer went to 20 degrees.
Any man who can invent a way of rais
ing the wind will be a benefactor to the
orange grower. I have seen ice half an
inch thick where no damage was done,
and ice only a quarter of an inch thick
and great damage done.
"A friend of mine went through the
Union orchards at Ontario and reports
no damage there. Something ought to
be done to stop the shipping of frozen
fruit. In one of the lowest spots in Riv
erside where in thirteen years there has
never failed to be damaged oranges, a
concern is stripping and shipping every
thing. I don't know what can be done
to stop it."
I. M. Simpson of the Earl Fruit com
pany admitted that there had been gonro
damage done; but said that nobody could
tell how much as yet. "Estimates made
now are mere guesswork," said he. "Our
men have been out for several days
gauging the damage and we know there
is lots of good fruit left. We had plenty
of good fruit left in '94, too. My estimate
of the damage is that it is not over ten
per cent. One thing that should be con
sidered is that nobody seems to be rush
ing off their fruit now."
E. T. Earl, president of the same com -
pany, later said that he knew of one con
cern that had fifty men out picking and
shipping frozen fruit, but knew of no
way to stop it.
The manager of a shipping firm oper
ating in thirty odd districts said yester
day: "We find it very hard to learn the
exact condition because of a general in
clination among growers to cover it up.
Our field rcportg vary exceedingly on
that account. For instance, they indi
cate today that the general loss is within
25 per cent, while yesterday fully one
half the crop was reported as damaged.
"Our reports today are that at River
side the loss in the lowlands below
Magnolia avenue is 25 per cent. On the
Casa Blanca side 10 per cent, and on
the East Side no damage done. At
Redlands and Highland, no damage. In
the lowlands adjacent some damage,
ranging from 10 to 18 per cent. Perris
people say there is no damage there, ex
cept in the lowlands, and there about 10
per cent. At North Ontario and Clare
mont, no damage. Lower Pomona, some
damage; extent unknown. Lordsburg,
Glendora, Covlna and their foothill dis
tricts, no damage, except In the low
lands. In Covlna and Duarte, gome dam
age. At Santa Paula and San Fernan
do, no damage. The weather Is generally
reported warmer, but is colder ln some
few places. The most serious damage
seems to have occurred in a portion of
Riverside and lower Pomona.
"In assuming that, other things being
LOS ANGELES HERALD* FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 24, 1897
equal, two such similar cold snaps as
that of the past week and that of Jan
uary, 1894, would result in like propor
tion of damage, it should be remem
bered that the orchards are In better
condition now than ln 1894, and the fruit
is six weeks farther along. On the other
hand, the orchards in 1894 were gener
ally small ones, surrounded by plains,
Which, warming up during the day, dis
pelled the chill of the night. Those
plains are generally planted now and
the larger orchard area kept damp by
irrigation does not throw off the night
chill as readily as in '94.
"We have other reports today to the
effect that much preparation is going
on at various points for rushing out
frozen fruit. This will demoralize the
market, and no fruit will be bought on
board cars here as soon as the eastern
ers get the frozen oranges. It is cer
tainly better for us to admit our dam
age and take Immediate steps to prevent
the shipment of frozen fruit. This can
be done by the Fruit Growers and Ship
pers' association, which controls three
fourths of tho product, holding a meet
ing next week and agreeing among
themselves not to ship any frozen fruit
or any but hand-sorted oranges, or any
kind at all for a week. That will give
time to detect the frozen fruit and keep
it out of the market.
"Please don't mention our name. The
orange shipper who wants his name
mentioned in damage estimates is gen
erally figuring low, In order to curry
favor with the grower, who is generally
very sensitive and resentful of the full
truth in regard to damage done his crop,
and does not hesitate to antagonize the
shipper who utters it. This I know from
a dozen years' experience. A damage
estimate with a shipper's name to it is
seldom nearer truth than a tax return."
Among Santa Fe railway officials, by
whom very full reports have been re
ceived, the estimated damage was placed
at from 1000 to 1200 carloads. This Is
very nearly the loss caused by the cold
snap of 1891—1300 carloads.
The oranges frozen' being generally
seedlings of the lower or poorer orange
lands, and the crop this year being larg
er than ever before, it is questioned, if
these 1200 carloads ot oranges had not
been destroyed by cold, whether ship
ping facilities could have been furnished
by the railways for their transportation
cast, and the very optimistic view of the
loss taken by the railway men is that,
under tbe circumstances, #they never
will he missed.
Bast Highlands fruit is reported un
damaged. The lowland oranges of West
Highlands are said to be badly frost
The Earl Fruit company received re
ports yesterday to the effect that the or
ange crop of Ravenna was not hurt
much; that of Azusa but slightly dam
aged, and also that at Azusa and Covhia
only the young growth was damaged by
the frost, the fruit remaining uninjured.
Also that the fruit of the higher lands
at Olendale is unhurt. There has been
some damage at Troplco.
Superintendent Harris of the county
hospital at San Jacinto says the ther
mometer ranged as low as 12 degrees
above zero at that place Monday night.
It is reported from Ontario that from
15 to 20 per cent of the lemon crop is In
jured. The lemons of Redlands are said
to have escaped, and both lemons and
oranges are uninjured at San Diego and
Mr. Scott of Wilson & Scott reported
many orchards badly frozen about High
lands, Redlands, San Bernardino and
Riverside. He thinks the damage there
has been very serious and the loss great.
One of the inspectors of the horticul
tural commission reported to Mr. C. G.
Kellogg that in the lowlands of Pomona
and Downey the crop has been Injured
at least one-half. Other reports gath
ered by Secretary Kellogg of the horti
cultural commission are as follows: C.
C. Reynolds reports no harm done at
San Fernando; Mr. Harper reports no
harm to his orchard in Cahuenga valley.
Mr. Strowbridge reports to the hor
ticultural commission that the orange
crop at Whlttier Is not materially in
jured, the young growth is nipped, but
the fruit has escaped damage.
Mr. Shepard, who bought a number of
crops on the tree at Downey, feels very
much discouraged with the outlook
there. The damage Is reported from
several sources to be from one-half to
two-thirds the entire crop.
The orange crop at the county farm
was reported safe yesterday morning,
but later in the day Dr. Burdlck re

Japanese Cheap Labor
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 23.—Charles W.
Richards, a mechanical expert of Cleve

where he has been superintending the con
struction of a wire-nail plant, costing
$250,000. at Tokio. The capacity of the
works Is .100 ltegs of nails and 1000 wooden
kegs daily. As skilled labor in Japan Is
paid but 35 cents a day. as against $1.50 in
this country, the output of the factory will
cause a corresponding reduction in the
demand for the American production.
