FRUIT GROWERS' CONVENTION. Yesterdays Session of More Than Usual Interest, MM Only to Menta, But to Agricultural ists ot the Great Commonwealth. ' .-• 1 - t M. T. Kearney of Fresno' Gives an Interesting Summary of the History of the Grape in Cali fornia, and the Benefits to His County Since the Growers Had Formed Their Combination to Protect Prices. SAN JOSE, Dec. 14.—This morning's session of the Horticultural Convention was one of great interest not only to the members, but it means much for the agriculture of this great State. M. Theodore Kearney of Fresno, President and General Manager of the California Raisin Growers)' Associa tion, opened the discussion. His sub ject was "The Raisin Industry—Re view of the Season's Output and Opera tion of Co-operative Organizations; Fruitfulness, Varieties of Fruits to be Encouraged, etc., and Co-operation Among the Farmers as) Applied to the Raisin Industry." This address was really a masterly summary of the history of the grape in California, with special reference to the raisin. He showed the period of terrible depression, and stated that in two years there wag a loss in assess ment in Fresno County of well on to two million dollars through the de pression in the industry. Then the growers got together and formed their combination. They control 75 per cent, of the total product and growers, are prosperous and contented, and Fresno County is prosperous. The address made a profound impres sion. A committee was appointed to look after the publication of tne speech, which shall be distributed free to the fruit growers of the State. The address of A. H. Naftzger of Los Angeles will also be printed in the same pamphlet, not less than 20,000 copies to be issued. A resolution protesting against any reciprocity treaty with Jamaica, France or elsewhere which will injure the fruit industry of the State was of fered and went to the committee. A resolution protesting against the adulteration of food products, olive oil, wine, etc., was offeired and went to the same committee. This announces as the sense of the convention that Congress should enact laws against food adulteration as such practice will not only ruin California's great agricul tural industries but those of the entire country as well. There seems to be no doubt of the adoption of both resolutions, and they will be sent to California's representa tives in Congress. NEWS FROM THE ORIENT.

AFTER THE GOLD BOOMS. Importance of the Reactions in De termining the Population. "The law that settlers follow the line of least resistance suffers an exception when men are seeking gold," says a writer in "Ainslee's," who goes on to prove it. "In the natural order of things, population would have worked itself in a continuous progression to ward the Rocky Mountains, crossing them only by compulsion, as the Alle ghanies were crossed and the Missis sippi and the Missouri Rivers. But where there is gold in sight there is no law. Humanity goes into Alaska with the same blind avidity that it went into California fifty years ago, with the same fatuousness that it swept to Pike's Peak in 1858. Population for sook all its domiciles, its patronages and its prosperity, in the Argonaut' pe riod, and, as if driven by some mon strous wind, surged over the uneven earth to the Pacific and to the Rockies. The whole world knows how it did so, and the suffering that ensued is as com mon a story as the fortunes that were won. But the thing that is not known, the matter of lasting importance that is most often overlooked, is the migra tory reaction, the settling back of the big flcod to the places in which, either by necessity or by choice, it must finally rest. The character of the great West, the transmlssouri, with its mutliple variations, is determined by this phe nomenon. "A map and a book of census statis tics will tell the story. It is the story of the oil from the pitcher again. Men and women touched the crest of the continent at Leadville, in Colorado, in 1858, but fell back on to the plains again before the sixties were expired. The Mormon emigration filled the val ley of the Jordan in 1847, but the gen eral tide of people either went to the lower valleys of the Sacramento and the San Joaquin on the Oriental side j of the Sierra Nevadas, or receded on the j eastern slope of the Rockies. Success ive mining discoveries enticed rushes of prospectors into Northern Idaho and British Columbia, but the greater mass of the movers went back into the warmer regions of California and Ore gon. W r here the Comstock and the Con solidated Virgina silver mines once magnetized so many settlers as to be guile Congress into making a State of Nevada, there is little left now but the evidence of what has been and the promise of what may be when the im migration of the West begins to move again for less glorious promises than acres of oranges for the mere tilling of the soil, and monster timber for the mere hewing of the logs. The mesas of the two Southwestern Territories, Arizona and New Mexico, seem to have absorbed the hosts of traders and ad venturers that went into them, as the sandy soil of their great areas drink in the freshets from the mountains." The Biograph Caused a Groan. It seems that among the treasures displayed by a biograph man now in the Crescent City is a series showing a crowd of spectators surging along lower Fifth avenue. The figures in the foreground include a chubby young man in a Scotch cap, holding a box camera in both hands, and evidently taking snap shots at the throng. He appeared at the lower right-hand cor ner of the scene, crossing rapidly to ward the left, and, just before tha film ended, he turned his face so that he was looking directly at the people in the theater, and smiled. This individual was immediately recognized as a young man whose abrupt departure from New Orleans not long ago was the scene of great grief among numerous creditors and overconfiding friends. He passed as a newspaper correspondent, and de veloped a good deal of talent as an all-round beat. When his counterfeit presentment flashed into motion on the biograph screen a deep groan went up from victims in several different parts of the theater. Most deeply grieved of all who saw the first exhibition in New Orleans was a man himself in the pho tograph line. He not only recognized the chubby young man. but he recog nized the camera in the young man's hand as one stolen from himself just before the youth so hastily started for the North.—New Orleans Times-Dem ocrat.
