The "Dally Herald" May be found in San Francisco at the Palace hotel news-stand; in Chicago at the Postofflce news-stand, 103 East Adams street; in Denver et Smith & ;Sons' news-stand, Fifteenth and Lawrence streets SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1800. It is a downpour sure. We get the legislature in Wisconsin, and will elect a Democrat to succeed Spooner in the United States senate. This is not a revolt, it is a revolution. Republican members of the next Con gress may stay at home, go atlshing, or like Mat Quay, saw wood. They will not be needed in the house. We have a quorum without them, and will need no czarism to carry on the necessary work of the country. Stay at home, boys, and build political fences for 1892. You will need them high and strong, for the people are not for you any more. A slight numerical error crept into our article on the numbers of senators yesterday. The total number of Re publicans in that body now is 51, giving that party a majority of 14. It is trivial, as the majority will be well changed by 1895 at latest. When the people take in hand the work of turning unfaithful servants out of office, they do it with some spirit. What a pity Czar Reed's congress ad journed at all! It sat in session "achieve ing," as the czar said in Ohio, longer than any of its predecessors in the his tory of the country, and it at last achieved the result of last Tuesday. Had it not adjourned at all there had been no Republicans in the next house. The loager it sat the more it "achieved," the more the people repudiated its achievements. John Sherman, with frozen and ex pansive cheek, says he has seen such revolts as that of Tuesday many times before. John is supposed to rival in his longevity the century-living crow, but — he must be referring to some former period of, existence,when his soul inhab ited some fish, when this took place. These were episodes in pre-Adamite his tory ,and the records are obliterated from all tablets excepting John's hard and icy heart. It is 1 currently reported that some of the firms engaged in this section in the fruit-handling business have cleared from $50,000 to four times that much each. Some of these concerns were started with very little capital. There is a very enticing opening here for cap ital in this business. The fruit industry ia expanding at a very rapid rale, and ■will do so for years to come. Capital will be needed in this work, and ths profits will be large. In 1874 a tidal wave in politics gave a Democratic majority of 97 in the house of representatives. Two years later Samuel J. Tilden was elected president. In 1882 a similar tidal wave resulted in a Demo cratic majority of 71 in the lower house, and in 1884 we elected Grover Cleveland president. In 1890 the great upheaval gives us a majority of about 120. In 1892 the country will still be with us, as in 1876 and 1882, and we will again cap tore the national government. Silver is beaten down to $1,022, nearly as low as ever it was. The peo ple had just time to see how falsely the Republican congress dealt with this issue before election daycameon. Well, the traitors to silver have heard the people's opinion on that head. The only shrewd one in the lot was Conger, of lowa, who betrayed his constituents by joining with Czar Reed, and little Ben, to defeat free coinage. He dare not go back to his people, but got a con sulship down in Brazil. The other fel lows went back to their homes with results now known. All through the late campaign in this state the Republican press did no end of misrepresentation in making out that boss Buckley was behind Pond. This was done in the face of the most patent facts. The "lambs" from hades to the matutinal repast knifed Pond for coin to them and their boss in hand paid by the great mogul of the Republican party, and by the grasping corporations of the Bay city. Now the same press, with as full knowledge of the variance between the facts and the statements tell ua that the sweeping Republican victory there was all only a rebuke to bosßism and the boss. Why, south of Market street, where the boss reigns su preme, and in precincts where there is not sufficient respectability to make a light spot in the darkness, nor sufficient honesty to keep up a fair average in a penitentiary, there the Republican majorities swamped the Democratic minorities. Was this a rebuke to the devil, administered by his imps? Bah ! Gentlemen, if you must tell lies, for heaven's sake tell shrewd ones, and not THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 8, 1890, "uch atupid stuff that their contradiction is written on their brow. Coin carried those wards at the bosses' dictation. The Republican party had need of him, bought him, paid for him, and got the miserable goods delivered. And thereby hangs a tale. BUSINESS! The election, with all its criminations, recriminations, neglect of business and other drawbacks, is over, and the neces sary evil being put behind, let us return to our duties in the business world. Fortunately for us, we have business to return to here, and its volume is steadily increasing. Los Angeles and the section around here stand as we approach the opening of a new decade on vantage ground of very exceptional value. There is not on any side an industry peculiar to our section that is not paying, nor is there an institution, corporation or firm that is at all lacking in stability. Few individuals are to be discovered who are not making a living, even if their only means of so doing is their brawn. If there is one here and there without his regular meals, out at elbow, or that has not a dollar or two in his pocket, the fault is in himself, not in the section. It is the result of laziness, not of lack of work. That tells only half the Btory. Not only are business affairs of all sort" solid here, but all industries are in a pro gressive vein, and the prosperity ahead and shining on us is growing daily brighter, and will fairly glow within the next twelve months. This cannot be otherwise with the forces at work that are patent to the most casual observer. The farmers of this section are all making money. Every crop that grows out of the ground finds ready sale at good prices. Streams of coin have poured into the granger's pockets all summer for fruit of various sorts. Just now the men who grow corn and those who own walnut groves are the lucky ones into whose laps the coin is being showered. Two months from now the orange growers will have their innings. They will gather about 3500 carloads of the luscious golden spheres, that is about 1,000,000 boxes, and the value on the trees will be about $1,500, --000 to $2,000,000. Side by side with this great source of wealth may be arrayed the crops of winter vegetables, peas, beans, cauliflower, tomatoes, potatoes and cabbages that mature along the frostless foothills all winter long. There will be a good market for every pound of these raised this winter, and there is a big acreage seeded along the Cahuenga country and in the upper Azusa valley. If the oranges pay $250 to $500 an acre, these winter vegetables fall little if any behind them in the gross sum realized. The expense of production may be somewhat larger. The boom of fruit-growing naturally stimulates the setting out of orchards on a liberal scale. There will be a great multitude of young trees set out in orchard this year. This planting will embrace besides cit rus fruits, all the deciduous varieties, and to these will be added walnuts. So the dollars are kept in lively and fruit ful circulation, and the nurserymen will get their share, while there will be am ple wages for the men who dig the holes and cultivate the soil. Another natural effect of all this is a demand for small farms. A large number of new settlers are finding their way in here quietly and securing little homes which they proceed to improve. From the east come frequent inquiries for information as to this section, and they get it in such ,an attractive shape that the result is usually to bring the inquirers here to settle. The display of our pro ducts making the itinerary of the union in California on wheels, and that other, more valuable display, which Major Truman presides over at Chicago, are doing excellent work in directing attention to this as the most attractive home on the face of the earth. The de mand thus created for lands is putting new heart into the holders ; and those who, a year or two ago, were afraid they never would be able to give their prop erty away, now find sale for it at fair prices, with values slowly/ hardening preparatory to a sure advance. This is a most significant fact, and one that the landless should quickly lay hold of. There is only one Southern California. Its area is limited. The frostless belt does not cover the earth. Lands whose crops are worth from $100 to $500 a year will not always be cheap. Soil that may be had today for $100 to $250 an acre will be worth when an active movement springs up again $500 to $1000. It is not a remote date when land suitable to orange culture, or that will produce ripe strawberries and peas in January,will be worth $2000 an acre in its raw state. Then there are several new enterprises on a large scale about to be set on foot in this city. The Terminal Railway company is already at work, and will be so in earnest in a few days. A cargo of lumber for the levee is here, and the engines to be used in driving the piles are on the g-onnd. The next thing will be to begin work below the city to reach tide water at Rattle snake island. The company has al ready paid nearly $100,000 as part pur chase price of that valuable harbor prop erty. It seem 3 surely as if some trans continental scheme was behind this enterprise. A smaller enterprise, but an important one, is the rehabilatation of the Second-street cable road Prepar ations are now in hand for construction of the power-house, on the corner of Sec ond street and Olive. Other work in this connection will proceed at once. It will give work to a number of men for some weeks. The Belt Electric road will be begun at a near date and will keep the ball moving, Another electric scheme is making progress to go from Pico Heights to Santa Monica. As to building in this city, there is a good deal of talking and planning. Something substantial is going on all the time in this direction, and more will be done. "Where a fine solid block is going up on Spring street, below Sec ond, preparations are making for a much larger block 'on the opposite side of the street. The sale of the two fine lots on the corner of Third and Broad way will lead at once to the building of a magnificent block that would be a credit to Broadway, New York. No edifice in San Francisco will surpass this. There is a good deal of capital coming into this section which will viv ify many industries and result in im provement in various lines. The sale of Rattlesnake island will bring here, in all, $300,000. The Redondo company paid up the last of the purchase price of that property the other day and took a deed for it. That was $300,000. The sale of the Fulton block a week ago to San Francisco parties was for $100,000, and the sale on the corner of Broadway and Second referred to above was for a like amount. Outside of the city the Pomona and Elsinore road is to be built at once, and the Temescal tin mines are to be thoroughly worked. Any one who glances at this small suggestion of enterprises must see a hint of prosperity in it all, and the shrewd will see a hint as to enhanced values for land. Rkadeijs of the Herald will regret to learn of the very dangerous illness of ex-Mayor John Bryson, Sr. He has been very ill from an attack of pleuro pneumonia for ten days past, and iB sinking rapidly. Although of very ro bust physique, he has reached the ad age of 72, and such an attack is hard to man. Mr. Bryson has been a most useful citizen in this com munity, and has aided among the very foremost ranks of our most enterprising citizens in building up the city. His loss would be much felt, and his absence would make a large void in the enterprises of the city. We will all cling to the hope that he may be spared still for many years of usefulness. A "REFORM" MOVEMENT. Some Solid Citizens Come Out For One. A lot of political cranks held a reform meeting yesterday evening, details of which appear elsewhere in the Herald this morning. The same people issued a circular which has been given wide circulation. It is needless to tell people posted at all in politics that these fel lows are only playing at the game. They are not in it as a faction in city affairs. But there is a movement being quietly worked here in the city that will put the two old parties on their ps and qs or they will be swamped. It is not yet possible to give the names of those in this movement, but they are said to be people not novices in politics. They are all business men of the highest representative type, bankers, merchants, manufacturers, business men and tax payers from top to bottom. A Herald reporter got wind of this some time ago, and yesterday succeeded in unearthing one of the prime movers in the scheme. He said: "Yes, I am in for reform in municipal politics. The inde pendent voter is a power in politics that is increasing. Look at the scratching done in the state election Tuesday. It is time this was so. lam a Bepublican, but study up the way our city government has been run for the past two years. There are too many Republicans in office, and they all com bine and there is no one to watch what schemes they put ud. AVhv, if it had not been for Mayor Hazard t believe those fellows would have stolen the streets and sidewalks. Our plan has been hatching for a month or more. We propose to get together by special invi tation a meeting of representative tax payers from every ward, and confer aB to the matter. Some one person of wide acquaintance and good judgment will be selected in each ward. He will choose a committee of, say six, tax payers in his ward, and these six will select a man to run for the council. All these committees from the several wards will meet to name the general officers of the city. One of the obligations put on those who take part in the movement, is that they will not seek any office, elective or appointive, under the city government sought to be elected. We will meet be fore either of the party conventions are held, and have our ticket in the field. It is my opinion that we will put a ticket in the field so strong that it will compel the parties to endorse our men —the Democrats those of that party on our ticket, and the Republicans those of their political faith. 'If they do not, and put up good men, all right, who ever may be elected will be a good citi zen ; and if the old parties put up a bad man, all right too; then our man will be elected. There ia our plan. It is pure, it is simple; it will win." It looks like a strong combination from the plan set forth and from the stability and influence, of the men whose names are whispered in connec tion with it. It will put the old parties on their mettle to nominate thoroughly reliable men for all the offices, for if they do not the band will play Annie Roonie, followed by McGinty. Gaining a Reputation with Ease. A South Carolina physician, asked why he located at Monclova, said: "It is a first rate place for a doctor. If a man is sick all you have to do is to tell his friends (no matter whether the affair is serious or not) to go to a priest and have him confessed and prepared for death. If he dies they will say. 'What a good doctor he is. He knew he must die, and so had his spiritual interests attended to. If he recovers they will say: 'What a capable physician he must be. The man was in the last extremity and prepared for death, and he cured him. So in either event it is a first rate place in which to achieve a medical reputation."—Medical Record. Longfellow's "Village Blacksmith." Boston has made the discovery that the original of Longfellow's "Village Blacksmith," who stood under the spreading chestnut tree and the muscles of whose brawny arms were strong "as iron bands, is Henry Francis Moore, a blacksmith still living at Medford. Mass. The poet was often in Medford previous to writing the poem, and was fond of chatting with Moore. The blacksmith is now 61 years oi age, and is himself of the opinion that Lcngfel low had him in mind when he wrote his poem.—Exchange. Save 51.50 on a Hat. Mullen, Bluett & Co. offer a light colored Stet son soft hat for 13.50. They are worth $5.00, but these are broken sizes. A Banyan Grove. Near Gifford station, on the Staten Island railroad, there is a peculiar piece of woodland, a spot where the roots of the trees all attach themselves to the trunks at from four to six feet above the level of the ground, giving to the stumps an odd, spidery appearance. The soil of the vicinity is very porous, which lends weight to the opinion that the banyan like grove has been formed by the action of frost and water.—St. Paul Republic. Cleaning; Lamps by Machinery. A machine for rapidly cleaning the gauze of miners' safety lamps has introduced into tho Wombwell collier ies at Barnsley. It is driven by a belt and pnlley, and the two brushes seen at the end of a shaft have a reciprocating motion. Two other brushes have a cir cular motion, and are intended to sweep the ends of the gauze and various parts of the lamp.—-New York Journal. A clever New lork journalist, Frank lin Fyles, recently produced a new play called "Overlook" at Boston, and critics commend it as very entertaining, novel and dramatic. Mr. Fyles has written several plays, but "Overlook" is said to be his strongest in conception and origi nality. "Nice dog. What do you use him for?" "Keep off burglars." When he is around no robbers can get in without our knowing it." "Ah! worth having, then." "Yes. You see, he keeps us all awake." —[Philadelphia Times. Cancer of the^Jose.

SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., Atlanta, Ga. 5 CENT DEPOSIT STAMPS. A New Feature in Savings Bank Deposits. The Security Savings Bank & Trust Co. At 148 South Main street, has for the part six months been receiving Children's Deposits in sums as low as '25 cents and issuing to each de positor a pass-book. As an aid to this department of our Savings Bank and for the purpose of encouraging Small Savings by all persons both old ai d young, we have decided to introduce what is known as the 5-CENT DEPOSIT STAMP. We will issue aS-cent Stamp, about the size of a U. S. Government stamp, bearing the name of our Bank. To the purchaser of two of these stamps will be given a blank book containing ten leaves, each leaf ruled for twenty stamps. On presentation to the Bank of one of these leaves with 20 scamps, a pass book will be is sued to the depositor showing a deposit of one dollar, which will at once i egin to bear interest according to the rules of the bank. Every time a leaf filled with twenty stamps is presented, a dollar credit will be entered in the pass-book, and so on. In order to facilitate the working of the sys tem and In order to enable all desiring to avail themselves of its benefits, to secure the stamps and blank books we will have agents in various and convenient parts of the city and county, who on the purchase of two or more stamps, will give to such depositors a blank book. The depositor, when he has purchased twenty stamps and filled one leaf, can send or bring the same to the ü ßankand secure his pass book. This 5 cent feature of Savings Deposits has been successfully operated in many of the Eu ropean and several of the prosperous and pro gressive American Savings Banks: notably the Citizens Savings Bank in Detroit. Believing that it is the province of a Savings Bank to receive and encourage the making of small deposits by both children and grown people as well as to receive the larger accounts of the more well to do, we have decidt dto adopt this 5 Cent Stamp Bystem as the simplest and most effective way of obtaining the end desired. We are pleased to announce to the DUblic that in a short time we will publish in" the dally papers a complete list of our agents of whom these f> Cent Stamps and blank books can be ob tained.
