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
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
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.

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
"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
