The removal of the duty on sugar by the McKinley bill is in some respects a severe blow to California. Beet sugar making promised to be one of the greatest industries of this state, whose development will be retarded in some degree by the removal of the duty. It is thought by the high protectionists of the republican party that a bounty of 2 cents a pound will more than compen sate growers of sugar for the loss of the duty. This iB true, if the bounty were an assured thing; but there is no telling what the next congress will do in these premises. There is no doubt that the bounty system is a logical outcome of the policy of the republican party, but theories are often wrecked by carrying them out to perfectly logical results. If the principle of a tariff for the sake of protection alone, is a just one, if one in dustry may be taxed solely for the pur pose of supporting another, and that is the case of the republican policy, then a bounty is as just and right as a duty. But the carrying of the policy out to this legitimate end, opens the eyes of many admirers of the protection system to the falseness of the premises on which it rests, and causes them to retreat from their position. The bounty does by direction only what the tariff does by indirection —that is the tariff levied primarily for protective purposes. Hence there is a fear that another congress, even should it be republican, may, and probably will rescind the bounty clause in the bill under discussion. The iron barons of Pennsylvania, who have for years reaped so large benefits from the protective tariff that has taxed other in dustres for the good of iron, may kick vigorously against paying a bounty on Louisiana and California sugar. Hence this bounty, although more of a benefit then the duty removed, will fail to stimulate the growth of the beet sugar industry. But taking another view of the matter and it will appear that the cheap sugar to be obtainable under the removal of the tariff on that commodity will be of great benefit to others of our industries. It will be of great help in the develop ing of factories for the curing of all sorts of fruits. It is the cheapness of sugar in England that enables London to make most of the line conserves, jams and jellies used in all parts of the world. England is not particularly suitable to the production oi fruits, but in spite oi her disadvantages in this re spect, free sugar enables her to compete successfully with all rivals in the manu facture of conserves of fruits of all sorts. Free sugar will be California's opportunity to enter the markets of the world and take this business out of the hands of England. There is no variety of fruit that does not do so exceedingly well here that in this respect we have the advantage of the world. With cheap sugar the state will be able to offer jams, jellies, conserves, and the whole line of sweet-meats, as cheap and as good as Cross & Blackwell's best brands. We shall compete with Smyrna in figs and with Glasgow in marmalades. Vast areas are being planted in various kinds of fruits in this section. In a very few years the production will be enor mous. It behooves all who have the welfare of the section at heart to move at once in the direction of securing facilities for taking care of these crops when the orchards come into complete bearing. The aftermath of the filibuster scheme to capture Lower California is really more racy and interesting than any thing developed in connection with that roaring farce at the beginning. Colonel Ferrer, the Mexican ex-army officer, in his challenge to "Governor-General Smith" for ridiculing his countrymen and depreciating their valor, has really so overshadowed the original argument of the play as to have taken entire possession of the. stage. Then our own Captain Janes, who was to have been the admiral of the new navy, has given zest to Col. Ferrer's attitude by his concise and sol dier-like dispatch, in which he offers to back the colonel in any controversy he may have with the "governor general," whom he designates in terms that are anything but Chesterfieldian. In reply to Col. Ferrer's challenge, the "governor general" launches out into poetry of no mean merit, although not quite up to the style or force of Juvenal in its satir ical properties. What will come next no man can foresee. But there are gouts of blood on the horns of the moon, and a waiting world is on tiptoe for the denouement. It is credibly rumored in San Fran cisco that M. H. De Young, proprietor of the Chronicle, has purchased the Evening Pott, and that it will move into the present Chronicle building when the TKE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1890. latter paper goes into Mr. De Young's new structure on Market and Kearney streets. The checkered fortunes of the Post will probably now be changed un der the spirit of push and enterprise its new proprietor will infuse into its busi ness and editorial conduct. THE COURT HOUSE BONDS. On the 7th of June the people of this county will be called upon to vote forthe issue of $300,000 of bonds to finish the new court house building. The original contract for the building was $410,000; but it was found when the second story was up that the increase that had been made in the number of superior courts would render the room inadequate tor the accommodation of all of them, and it was determined to add another story to the structure. Aside from the fact that this additional room was absolutely required, it is fortunate for the appear ance ot the edifice that this additional story has been added. Without it the structure would have been squat and out of proportion; with it it will present a grand and symmetrical architectural appearance. Indeed, it is now so far advanced as to show that it will be a noble structure, one which will be an ornament to our city and a credit to our county. The additional cost entailed by this necessary change is about $60,000. To furnish and equip the building when finished, and to make the needed im provements in the grounds, will require about $19,000, making the total cost $500,000. When the work was first undertaken the supervisors thought they could erect the court house without calling upon the people to vote for more than $200,000 of bonds. It was esti mated that the present court house prop erty could be sold for $200,000, and as a matter of fact that sum was actually offered for it, but it could not be sold until other quarters lor the offices and courts could be had, and at the rate rents were bringing then, to have dis posed of the old court house would have been a losing business for the county. Then there is the 90-foot lot on Temple street, valued at $54,000 ;40 feet on Buena Vista street, $12,000, and 58 feet on New High street, $34,000. The dis posal of all this property it was esti mated would bring a total of $300,000, so that with the $200,000 of bonds the amount required to build tl.e court house would have been secured. But it would be an act of very bad business management to put that prop erty on the market now. As soon as we have recovered from the reaction of over inflation, that property will bring every cent of its estimated value. Indeed the property in the vicinity of the court house ought to increase in value when that structure is finished and occupied. We are now paying about $15,000 per annum for rents for offices and court rooms, and that sum alone would pay the interest on $300,000, so that really it is a stroke of economy to finish the building and get our public business into it as soon as possible. It seems to us that our people will make no mistake in voting for these bonds. They will be called in and liqui dated as soon as our real estate market revives, and in the meantime we shall have a public building which will be the admiration of every stranger that comes here. If, on the other hand, the people should refuse to vote for the issu ance of the bonds, what would be the re sult? The work cannot be stopped, but must be urged on to completion. That means that it shall have to be paid for. A failure of the bond vote would compel the supervisors to include in the tax levy a rate sufficient to raise the money at once. It would not be pleasant to have 50 cents on the $100 added to our tax rate this year to meet this obliga tion. Yesterday h magnificent equestrian monument to General Lee was unveiled in Richmond in the presence of a vast assemblage of people, many of whom fought on both sides in the late civil war. Officers of high rank in both the union and confederate armies are now visiting together the scenes where they contended in mortal conflict around Vicksburg, and recalling the events of those fearful days when the fate of the nation trembled upon the outcome of that memorable siege. Today, in every cemetery, the veterans of the union will decorate the grave of every soldier, whether he wore the blue or the gray. The history of all times w ill be searched in vain for a par allel to so speedy and complete a recon ciliation of a people who had but a few years before engaged in a deathly strug gle. The acerbities of the civil war in England were not entirely wiped out for nearly two centuries, and yet in less than twenty-five years we see that the bitterness of our gigantic strife has passed away, leaiving hardly a sting be hind. It is a proof of the advancement of the age in the humanities and in that higher intelligence which subdues the passions and overcomes the hatreds of our grosser natures. The observance of Memorial day will be general throughout the state and na tion today. A very interesting pro gramme of services has been arranged by the Grand Army posts of this city, and the soldiers' graves in all the ceme teries will be decorated with flowers —a beautiful and touching tribute to the memory of the men who served their country in the time of trouble. The 30th of May has by common consent be come a holiday in all the states of the union, and been consecrated to the memory of the brave departed. It is hallowed by the recollections of a thousand lields of carnage, where men of the tame race and of equal valor shed their blood in devotion to principle. The observance of such a day gives refu tation to the apothegm that republics are ungrateful, and instills a love of country in the breasts of our youth which will prove a shield and a safe guard to the union whenever its honor is attacked or its liberties placed in jeopardy. Mr. H. S. Garr, the justice of the peace at Cahuenga, called upon us yes terday to say that he shipped tomatoes to San Francisco as early as the 21st, and got 50 cents a pound for them. This seems to have been an earlier shipment than Mr. Miller's, and a better price than the latter got. Mr. Garr says that the Cahuenga tomato crop is very short this year, the tremendous rains of last winter having killed a great number of vines. There will only be a half crop of peas and no early beans, but the late beans are giving a satisfactory harvest. It is not often that the early vegetable crop of Cahuenga gets a set-back, and it pays so well that such an accident once in ten or twelve years ought not to count. About every two or three years something happens to western fanners that leaves them cropless. This year the entire peach crop of Delaware and New Jersey has failed. AMUSEMENTS. .■\t vie j.us AJtgerag uieiuer wnere Herrmann's excellent variety combina tion is giving one of the best shows of the kind ever witnessed in this city, there will be a grand Memorial day matinee this afternoon. The usual evening performance will also take place, and that closes the season of this most amusing company. At the Grand opera house Paul Kauvar w ill be repeated tonight, with Joseph Haworth in the title role. It is an ex j ceedingly strong play and is well pre : sented. At this house there will be the usual Saturday matinee tomorrow. Illinois Social. Illinois hall will be handsomely decorated this evening on the occasion of the regular social of the Illinois As sociation. The entertainment is io in clude appropriate memorial exercises. Following is the list of names on the programme for either musical or elocu tionary exercises: Mrs. Stella Mathews, Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Browing, Mrs. Maybin, Prof. Ruthard, Mr. J. H. Toler, Misses Jessie and Annie Toler, Captain Buck ley, Nettie Harwood, Pearlie Gleason and others. STILL WORTH MONEY. Southern California Land Cannot be Bought for a Song. Day before yesterday there was a sale of a small bit of land at Altadcna, a couple of miles from the center of Pasa dena, that shows lands in this section are still of value. The bit of realty is four and a half acres, and sold for $700 an acre. Baldridge, the nurseryman at Azusa, has an orange orchard of eighty acres, nearly all planted and bearing. He has recently refused $80,000 for it. He wants to sell, he says, as he is growing old, and the care of so large an orchard is a heavy burden ; but he does not want to sell bad enough to let go at $1,000 an acre. He says the property pays a large rate of interest on the price here named. Mr. Barber, of the corner of Broadway and First street, had a 20-acre tract at Ontario, half planted in oranges. He sold it three years ago to an eastern man for $18,000, $5,000 down and the balance on time. The tenderfoot mistrusted his own judgment, thought he had paid too much for the land, and let it go back rather than complete his purchase. In due time the title was perfected in Mr. Barber, who offered it for the $13,000 the eastern man owed on it, and sold it quickly for the price. The confidence of the people is being re-established.

The I'eople Are Coming. J. C. Judson, who has been in the excursion business between the east and Los Angeles, has just returned from an extended trip through all the eastern states. He says there will be a large increase of travel to this section this year as compared with that oi last year. Movement will begin at once, and the summer business will be good. This will go on improving during the fall, and by winter a good many tourists will be reaching this city. He thinks the tide has turned definitely. To Wed.

Some Reasons Why You Should Vote County Bonds "YES." That the public might fully understand why a call is made for an authority to issue $300,. 000 court house bonds, the board of supervisors in calling an election, published in said call the following explanation why the bonds should be issued. WHEREAS, the County of Los Angeles has not at this time any court house, or any place or offices where the business of said county can be properly, economically or fully transacted: and WHEREAS, said county has heretofore con tracted for the construction of a suitable court house, containing proper offices, adequate and sufficient for the transaction of the public busi ness of said county; and WHEREAS, the said court house as so con tracted for was to be a two-story structure, and was deemed at tbe time said contract was entered into sufficient for the needs of the county; but afterward two additional depart ment- "l the superior court were created to meet a corresponding increase in the judicial business of said county, thus necessitating a modification of the original contract so as to provide for a three-story instead of a two-story court house; and WHEREAS, the construction of such court house so containing such offices will cost the sum of $500,000, and the cost of furnishing and equipping the same will be $50,000; and WHEREAS, of said amounts, there has already been raised from the sale of bonds of said county heretofore Issued, and sold in accordance with law, the sum of $200,000, for and on account of the construction of Baid court house, which sum has been properly and legally ex pended on account of such construction of such court house so containing such public offices, and there has also been raised by said county from other sources, and lawfully expended in such construction, the further sum of $50,000: and Whkukas. at the time salds2oo,ooo of bonded indebtedness was incurred, it was with good reason contemplated and expected by the said board of supervisors that before any ad ditional sum would be needed forthe comple tion of said court house, or for the furnishing or equipping thereof, that certain real prop erty, belonging to said county and situate in I.OS Angeles City, California, and known as the Old Court House Property; also the portion of the D. G. .Stephens tract, situate on Temple street, in said city, which said county has not disposed of, the title of which appears in the records in the recorder's oflice of said county, to be in said county; also that portion of the Transit tract, in said city, the same being a subsidvision of lots 2, 3 and 4 of the County Hospital grounds the title of which appears in the records in the recorder's office of said county, lo be in said county, would be sold by said county, and a sufficient sum realized from said sale to complete the construction, and to equip and furnish the court house contracted for as aforesaid, which said expectations were not realized, it having been fofmd impossible to sell said property to advantage, and it being for the benefit of said county and the taxpayers thereof to retain said property for a better market: and Whkukas, such courthouse is only partially constructed and will be of no avail whatever for any purpose until its construction, under the said contract, has been fully completed, and until it Is properly furnished and equipped; and Whkrkas. it is necessary in order to complete said court house, and to provide offices for the proper, economical and efficient transaction of the business of said county, that there should be raised as soon as practicable, the sum of. $250,000 in addition to the sum already so raised and expended; and WHEREAS, it is necessary, in order to prop erty furnish and equip said court house, that there should be raised as soon as practicable the further and additional sum of $50,000; and Whkukas, There is no money in the treasury of said county available for such purposes, to wit: forthe completion of the. construction of sncji court house, and the furnishing and equip ping' of the same, nor is there likely to be any money in said treasury so available; and Whkrkas, It is inexpedient, and would be un justly burdensome on the taxpayers of said county to raise the money necessary to com plete said court house, or to equip or furnish the same by direct taxation; and * Whkukas, It is for the best interests of said county and the taxpayers thereof that said money, to-wlt; $260,000 for the completion of said court house and $50,000 for the equipment and furnishing of the same, should be raised by the issuance and sale of 300 bonds of said county of (hp denomination of $1,000 each, to run for 20 years, tijul to bear interest at a rate not greater than five percent. p&T annum; New, therefore, It }s hereby ordered, that there shall be, ahd there is hereby submitted, to the qualified electors of the county of Los Angeles, at a special election which is hereby called Mid ordered to take place on the 7th day of June, IM9O. the question whether said electors " ill consent to the Issuance of bonds of said county in the sum of $300,000, said bonds to be 300 in number, and of the denomination of $1,000 each, to run for 20 years, and to bear interest at a rate not greater than five per cent, per annum; and it is hereby ordered that the particular pur pose for which such indebtedness isto be created is as follows: Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars of said indebtedness is to be created, and the amount raised by the sale of 250 of said bonds is to be expended in the completion of the construction of the court house of said county, such court house having been only par tially constructed, and being located in the city and county of Los Angeles, state of Cali fornia, on that certain lot described in a deed from city of Los Angeles to county of Los An geles, recorded on'he 20th day of February in book 154, page 112, of deeds, in the recorder's oflice of said county, and the balance of said indebtedness, to wit: Fifty thousand dollars, is to be created, and the amount raised by the sale of 50 of said bonds is to be expended in equipping and furnishing said courthouse. The total number of bonds, as to the Issuance of which said electors are so called upon to de cide, being 300 of the denomination of $1,000 each, running for 20 years and bearing interest at urate not to exceed 5 per cent, per annum. Tlie question now 'is, do you prefer to have the $300,000 necessary to complete the court bouse raised this fall by direct tax, or will you authorize the supervisors to borrow the money at 5 per cent, per annum interest. The county has considerable city property as shown above, which can be sold at a good price ere long, and with the money derived, the bonds cun be redeemed. Hut independent of that is it not better that the greatly augmented property of twenty years hence, should pay for the court house, when the tax would be so small as to be scarcely felt, than that the taxpayers should this fall have to go down in their pockets to pay it. The contract is let, the court house is nearly complete, and the same MUST be paid for by tax or by sale of bonds. He Tried It on His Son. I I tried Chamberlain's Pain Balm on Imy son for rheumatism.
