VISALIA, Cal., May 19.— That portion
of the San Joaquin Valley, which includes
Tulare and Kern counties, is noted for hav
ing the spirit of the new California. The
great wheat fields, the cattle ranges and
the ''iin-fence" plains have given way to
oranpe proves, fruit orchards, alfalfa fields
tfhd gardens. The great rivers have been
turned into irrigating ditches — and the
Boil that has thirsted for many years is
watered. The productions of this country
have proved the value of irrigated lands in
the San Joaquin.
The crest of the Sierra culminates in the
ea>tern border of Tulare County, in Mount
"Whitney, with an altitude of 15,000 feet.

Visalia, the county seat of Tulare
County, is a thriving city of nearly 4000
population. It is one of the oldest settle
ments in the San Joaquin Valley. It was
an important trading point In the '50's.
The town is situated in a park of Califor
nia oaks — a city among the trees. For
miles around the county roads afford a
continuous drive nnder shading trees and
along beautiful streams. No city in any
of the valleys of California can excel its
In the early days it was called the "Fonr
Creeks Country," because the Kaweah
River enters the broad plains east of
Visalia, and dividing into four branches
forms a delta. The soil is rich, and when
the pun shines warm on the sub-irrigated
land vegetation grows with great rapidity.
The prune trees for instance in the GoO
acre orchard of Ben Maddox and his com
pany are as larpre at two years as in other
jvirts of the State where the same condi
tions do not exist in four years.
The growth of deciduous fruit trees in
the vicinity of Visalia is simply wonder
ful. The orchard of Mr. Fleming, a few
miles out of the city, is one of the most
pro6table ranches in the State, and while
there are many men counting their losses
on an investment in fruit culture be is
counting his profits. He -considers the
country around Visalia adapted to fruit
culture and gives the following reasons:
First, a sub-irrigated soil; second, climate,
and third, the cheapness of the lands. It is
near Visalia that a committee of citizens
picked from one prune tree 1102 pounds and
afterward made affidavits to the fact. This
statement can be made with a strict re
gard to the truth: the Visalia lands bring
unusually quick and exceedingly large re
turns as compared with other sections.
A STREET SCENE IN VISALIA.
[Drawn from a photograph.]
Visalia is a beautiful city. The higk
Sierras that seem to come almost to the
edge, yet are forty miles distant, lead to
it grandeur. The bouses are smothered
in roses and the fields, instead of being
barren, are either in trees, vegetables,
forest or alfalfa. There are notable public
and private buildings. The city is practi
cally out of debt. Its streets are clean and
the main blocks are paved with bitumen.
A little city that will spend $75,000 on its
streets is likely to hear the engine of pros
perity whistle in the immediate future.
The city of Visalia is dressed up in nine
teenth century clothes. Like Trilby it is
up to date.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, MONDAY, MAY 20, 1895.
The city has a live board or trade, good
schools, churches and social organizations.
At the present time Visalia has achieved
prominence by its public spirit mani
fested toward the building of the San
Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Rail
A recent telegram to the Call told of
the fact that there is not a vacant house or
storeroom in the city of Visalia. Even in
the summer, when many of its residents
take their tents to the picturesque canyon
and high mountain mesas in the vicinity of
Mount Whitney to engage in the sport of
hunting and fishing, Visalia is tilled with
The schools of Tulare County, formerly
under the charge of Professor Crookshanks,
and now under the supervision of Professor
McPhail, are progressive and complete in
The city of Tulare is one of the trade
centers of the San Joaquin Valley. Freight
wagons, loaded with wheat, approach the
town from all directions, and the statistics
of exports speak well for the production of
Tulare County. Tulare has two enterpris
ing banking institutions, several large
mercantile establishments, as well as all
other lines of business. The streets are
well graded, and the residence portion of
the city contains many beautiful homes.
The schools are noted for their efficiency,
and the seven churches prove Tulare to be
a patron of the various creeds.
Tulare has during the past few years
suffered from severe fires, but hsa gone
right forward. For many years the South
ern Pacific maintained its shops here and
the removal caused Tulare quite a loss in
business and population. The surround
ing country, however, rich in the products,
cereals, fruits and vegetables, has started
it again on the up grade, and Tulare City
will always be one of the important points
of trade in the San Joaquin Valley. It has
many enterprising citizens, and its news
papers are wide awake and progressive.
It has recently organized an association
for the improvement and development of
The men who figure on railroads, loca

tage of having a big land firm to advertise
and develop its resources— a firm that ad
vertises the largest irrigation system in
America and a hundred thousand acres of
land for sale.
The railroad edition of the Californian,
of which George F. Weeka is editor, is one
of the most complete find artistic presenta
tions of the merits of Kern County and the
San Joaquin Valley that have ever been
printed. Those who nre interested in the
production of alfalfa, cereals, fruit, stock
raising, minerals should secure a copy.
Claus Hpreckels, in his visits both to
Visulia and Uakersfteld, expressed surprise
at the fertility of the soil and the thrifti
ness of the young chip*. Bakeruiield has a
handsome new courthouse, several tine
blocks, large mercantile establishments,
enterprising real estate men and pro
gressive citizens. The handsome edifice

County Land Company in elegantly
equipped, and maintains as fine an exhibit
of the various products of the county as is
usually seen at great fairs.
Bakerslield depends largely for its pros
perity on the profits of its productive land,
and ite alfalfa, cerenls, fruits, stock and
mines pour into the town a good supply of
cash and make it a prosperous city. As
the terminal point of the San Jonquin Val
ley Railroad it has become particularly
prominent, and it and its thrifty com
panion, Kern City, are not lacking either
in natural advantages or in business enter
prise to build up and go forward.

CONTROL OF SEMINARIES
Adjustment of the Question
Vexing Presbyterians Not
Yet in Sight.
Seattle Making a Strong: Campaign
' to Secure the Next
PITTSBURG, Pa., May 19.— Pittsburg
Presbyterians boast especially of their
orthodox Presbyterianism and claim the
smoky atmosphere has had no effect in
obscuring the clearness of their Calvinistic
vision. But it is many a day since Pitts
burg was taken possession of so completely
as to-day by the forces of the denomina
tion. Churches of all sorts and varieties
opened their doors and pulpit*, and it took
a long columii of small type to set forth all
of the appointments made and accepted by
the divines of the Presbyterian General
The greatest interest was felt, however,
in the sermon of the moderator, Dr. Rus
sell Booth, who preached as usual in the
church where the assembly sits, lie was
greeted by a large audience. His text wao
taken from the Gospel of John xii:32:
And I, if I be lifted from the earth, will draw
all men unto me.
His subject was the vicarious and aton
ing death of Christ, and the sermon was
clear and powerful. If any of the audi
ence hoped for any utterances on questions
in hot debate they were disappointed, as
the only thing that could be construed into
such an interpretation was the emphatic
statement that, "As against infidelity,
orthodoxy now has its innings."
Parts of two days have now been de
voted by the Presbyterian General Assem
bly to the discussion of the subject of
assembly control of theological seminaries.
To-morrow the matter will be resumed
Thus far all attempts to limit debate
have been voted down overwhelmingly,
but word has gone forth that a discussion
must be reached at four o'clock Monday
afternoon. Many, however, doubt the
ability of the leaders to put this pro
gramme through. The attitude of Liberals
favors postponement in the expectation
that if the report of the Committee of Con
ference with the seminaries is thoroughly
accorded it will be weakened and lose
every day. Already the time occupied is
so long that the commissioners are re
minded of the endless discussion in the
Briggs and Smith cases. The result Droni
ises to be that the causes of the mission
ary boards will be pushed aside, and that
external questions will usurp a place
which does not belong to them.
The Pacific Coast is here again with a
pressing invitation to the assembly to
meet in 1896 in Seattle. Three years ago the
meeting place was Portland, Or., and at
that time the Briggs case came up. Its effect
upon the church west of the Rocky Moun
tains was not all that had been antici
pated. Now, with the burning questions
out of the way, a more favorable impres
sion is hoped for.
Dr. Alexander Allison and Elder W. R.
Ballard, from the First Church of Seattle,
are engaged in canvassing and are
forming sentiment in favor of their city.
They promise good rates, excellent accom
modations and a meeting place second to
none in the country.
The question is likely to be one of ex
pense and it may be necessary for the
backers of Seattle to raise a guarantee fund
to make it possible to take 600 commission
ers so far and to keep them so long. The
other place mentioned is Saratoga, where
the assembly met last year and where the
commissioners can be entertained at less
expense than anywhere else in the coun

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 19.— The
fact that the general assembly of the Pres
byterian church, now in session at Pitts
burg to decide whether Indiana is to be
allowed to carry on its home missions,
prompted a union meeting in thia city of
all the fourteen Presbyterian congrega
tions. Nearly 8000 people were present,
and by their enthusiasm expressed them
selves as opposed to going back to the old

State during the year 1894, while during

Property Valued at Upwards
of a Half Million Dollars
ROBBED OF THEIR HOMES.
The Conflagration Makes a Clean
Sweep Through Blocks
ST. ALBANS, Vt., May 19.— A disas
trous fire swept St. Albans to-day, destroy
ing dwellings, business blocks, public
buildings and a large amount of other
property. The loss will amount to at
least a half million dollars.
The fire broke out shortly after 3 o'clock
in the lumber-yard of W. B. Fonda, and in
a short time several large piles of lumber
and business offices had been ignited.
There was a heavy wind blowing at the
time and the fire spread rapidly. It de
stroyed Chisholm Bros.' store and the
tenement-house and drugstore owned and
occupied by F. Eldred.
The blaze next spread to the big building
occupied by the Crown Furniture Com
pany and Collins' meat market. The
blocks of Wood & Favro, J. H. Montfere
and W. E. Dean, adjoining, were also de
stroyed in a short space of time.
At this point the wind had increased to
a miniature hurricane, and the burning
embers were carried in every direction.
Swanton and Burlington were called on
for help and soon responded. It was
found impossible to prevent the Main
street blocks from burning, and a dozen
buildings were soon on fire. The first
Main-street structures that ignited were
the stores of W. 8. Bailey and F. B. Mor
ton. The Wallace Printing Company's
building, the stores of Lombard & Win
throp and Marceau & Vincent and Fuller's
livery stables were soon in ashes.
The Government building; on Kingman
street caught fire a few minutes after 1
o'clock, and was soon gutted. Most of the
papers, furniture, etc., were saved. The
Hill block, occupied by J. E. Welch and
W. X. Adams, v/as levelled to the ground.
At 5:30 the Messenger building caught
fire and burned fiercely for half an hour,
the fire extending to the block occupied by
W. H. Ellis and W. H. Woodward's store.
Most of the buildings were of wood and
burned like tinder, many occupants not
having time to rescue their effects.

Shortly before 6 o'clock the entire Bur
lington Fire Department arrived and all
companies joined forces in an attempt to
stop the fire on Main street. The attempt
was partially successful and the tire was
checked about <>:30 o'clock, in time to save
the more valuable blocks on Main street.
The stores of A. L. Weeks, A. J. Lang and
G. H. Harvey, however, were burned, and
at this point the progress of the tire was
Control of the tire was obtained on Foun

almost a clean sweep from Stebbins street
to Hoyt, turning maay people out of their

The fire, after leaving Fonda's lumber
yard, passed in a northerly course along
St. Catherine street, eatins up many
wooden buildings near by, then going
along Kingman street. From Center
street along one side to Hoy street on the
other, the blaze swept through the entire
district to and across the street, which for
several blocks was laid waste, including a
number of tenement iiouses.
Fully thirty families are homeless to
night. The hotels are using kerosene and
candles to-night, as the gas and electric
light service are cut off. It is impossible
to give the insurance on the burned prop
erty, as the underwriters are unable to
ascertain what the figures are.
HI.AZi: AT HALIFAX.
Wharves Owned by the Dominion Gov-
HALIFAX. N. S., May 19.— Thia city
was visited by a $100,-000 fire this morning,
and there was not a cent's worth of insur
ance on the property destroyed.
The flames started on the Intercolonial
Railway's long wharves in the cattle-sheds.
Both wharf and sheds, in which were sixty
head of cattle, were soon consumed, as
well as the freight and immigration sheds.
The fire also swept the immense coaling
pier, trestle work and wharf of the Domin
ion Government, and on which were a
number of loaded coalcars. On the sur
rounding tracks were a great uumber of
empty and loaded cars, but locomotives
got them out of danger. The property was
owned by the Dominion Government and
The fire was supposed to have been the
work of an incendiary. The other Gov
ernment terminus was destroyed by fire,
and the loss of this one means great incon

Ruins of a Birmingham fire.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 19.— A special to
the Republic from Birmingham, Ala.,
At 3 o'clock this morning fire broke out
in George Mitchell's grocery-store at. Gate
City and burned an entire block before it
could be checked, destroying Mitchell's
store, J. C. Fant's boarding-house, Jake
Wise's residence, Pierson's meat market,
Mrs. Horßefee's residence, the Gate City
high school and two other buildings.
Fant's boarding-house was located over
Mitchell's Btore, the rooms being occupied
by fifteen rolling-mill men. They had
been drinking the night before, and it was
with great difficulty that any of them
were saved. The rescuers dragged some
from their beds, while others jumped from
the windows clad only in their night gar
ments. James Smithson's charred corpse
has been recovered from the debris. Two
strangers are missing. Richard Long had
a leg burned off, and others received slight

buildings except the pulpmill were de
stroyed. This was one of the largest and
best equipped plants in the State. The
mills were owned by George "Whiting of
Menosha and William Whiting of this
place. The loss will reach $150,000, with
insurance about one-half.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 19.— Prominent

against the venerable Archbishop Peter
Richard Kenrick by priests of bis diocese
and laymen to divest him of all title and

89 years of age and so weak in mind as to

weeks ago a newspaper controversy arose
over the reported loss of Archbishop Ken
Archbishop Kain gave out at the time
that the testament was in the hands of
Archbishop Hennessy of Dubuque, lowa.
Since then, however, another and later
will has been found. The plaintiffs, who,
by the way, act as beneficiaries of the
trust, say this last will is confused and
almost impossible of interpretation; that
the devisements would come to naught in
case Archbishop Kenrick died, and this in
strument was filed for probate.
Another cause for fear growing out of
the improperly drawn will is the possible
action of heirs of Archbishop Kenrick.
This danger is anticipated from Ireland,
where the aged prelate is supposed to have
relatives. Were he to die and not leave a
valid will, these heirs would have a prims
facie cause for action for the possession of
millions which he holds in fee simple.
The anxiety of Archbishop Kain and his
advisers to avert publicity and a law suit
brought Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia
to this city a few weeks ago. Archbishop
Ryan went home unsuccessful and the
lawyers set to work.

Archbishop Kain to get full control of the

A call has been issued for a State confer

is stated that the race suffers from three
causes, viz. : Anti-negro legislation such as
the separate coach law, mob violence and
non-representation on juries, which have
come either from vfc'.ous laws or from
want of laws affording relief to cure these
evils. It is set forth that the negro holds

SALT LAKE, Utah, May 19.— Thomas
G. Merrill, Edward B. Light and Governor
L. Bradford Prince, the committee ap
pointed on Saturday by the executive com
mittee of the National Bimetallic Union to
prepare instructions for the organization
of State, district, city and town unions
throughout the country, have issued the
following address on the subject.
To the People of the United States : It is a mat
ter of vital importance, in carrying out the
plan of action adopted by the meeting of the
National Bimetallic Unio.i, that in districts,
towns, cities and States the organization of bi
metallic unions be entered upon at once. The
object of these unions is for the thorough or
ganization in the interest of the education of
the voters of the land on the financial ques
tion, which is the burning question before the
American people to-day. The only hope in the
struggle for the full restoration of silver to iti
place as money at a ratio of 10 to 1 by the
United States, is in such an education of the
people as will cause a majority of the voters of
our country in November, 1896, to vote for in
dependent bimetallism regardless of party
The formation of these unions may be en
tered upon at once, and we suggest that each
union adopt the name of the district, town or
State in which they are organized, and that the
secretary of each union address a letter to
E. B. Light, secretary of the National Bimetal
lic Union, Denver, Colo., who will forward a
form of constitution and by-laws recom
mended by the national organization. As
soon as the local reorganizations are com
pleted they shall appoint a committee of their
most earnest workers for the purpose of circu
lating a subscription-paper throughout their
entire communities. We would further rec
ommend that the subscription be made in
monthly payments, which shall continue until
November 1, 1896.
Further recommendations will be made by
the secretary at the time the constitution ami
by-laws are forwarded. The money so raised
is required for the purchase and circulation of
Mmetalllc literature, furnishing honest and
unanswerable arguments for full and inde
pendent bimetallism; believing that this is the
only way to restore permanent prosperity to
our beloved land.
This is a. struggle between the money power
and patriotism, and in order to win our cause,
as we have the all-powerful money interests to
oppose us, it is absolutely necessary that every
patriotic citizen shall at once enlist in this
light and render us as great assistance as is in
bis power until this battle is won. • .
