THE WEATHER PROBLEM.
The papers in San Francisco are do
ing a good deal of figuring as to the
probability of a dry season. The situa
tion with them is getting to be a little
serious; for it is not often .that the end
of November comes in the northern and
central pirts of the state, failing to de
velop two or three good rains, that the
season does not prove deficient in inois
ture to produce a crop. The anxiety
about this matter in the north has re
sulted in raising the price of barley and
other feed. This is not the
only influence that has increased
the price of these commodities.
The stock of barley in the state is not
more than comfortably sufficient for
the needs of the state, even if a crop for
next year were assured. This most im
portant fact naturally produces a pretty
stiff market. Feed barley is now worth
$1.55 in San Francisco, and it is worth
fully as much here. Each week of con
tinued drouth in the state must
result in creating a higher price
for feed of all sorts. Here hay is up to
$17 per ton, retail price, and if the
month passes without rain, it will prob
ably, go to $20 wholesale.
In our local columns we have tried to
allay any anxiety that may have devel
oped as to a dry year south of Tehach
epi pass. In a period of twenty years
there has been only about one fail
ure of crops by reason of deficient
rainfall, and that was not by any means
a total failure. In fact, deficient crops
have been the result oftenerof too much
rain than of too little. At this moment,
no doubt the failure of the fall rains in
Oregon, Washington and Northern Cal
ifornia' indicates the working of a gen
eral,law, : applicable to the entire Pa
cific coast, but that ia all can be
said at this time. We are only
at the beginning of the season, and local
causes often produce good rains here
when the general laws fail to bring
any precipitation in the northern por
tion of the state. A glance at the facts
set forth in the article referred to before
will show that a failure of rain up to the
end of November with us in Southern
California is a fact of little or no sig
nificance. Even should there be no
rain up to the end of December, still
the chances would be altogether in
favor of plenty of rain after that date.
For a long series of years we have had
abundance of rain every year. The re
sult is that the ground is full of moist
ure, the streams are running a good
volume, and the mountains are storing
an almost inexhaustible Eupply of
the precious fluid. Under these
circumstances, our moist lands will pro
duce crops without any rainfall, our
vegetable lands will produce big crops,
and a very moderate rainfall will in
sure crops even on the dryest mesas.
Two inches of rain in the four months
from January first, would be ample for
The fact is Southern California is the
most certain section of the country as
to rainfall. Our dispatches inform us
this morning that one-half of the state
of Nebraska is now undergoing a famine
because of a failure of the rains
last summer, and the legislature
of that state is asked to ap
propriate $100,000 to keep the people
from starvation. This is something ab
solutely unknown in Southern California,
where the crops never fail. It is to be
hoped that our rains may hold off until
quite late. If they do not come until near
the end of the year it is no misfortune,
but rather the opposite. If the total
precipitation for the season should not
surpass a dozen inches, that, too, will be
a positive benefit to all interests.
Most Angelefios will remember the
great energy used by Mr. C. White
Mortimer, the British vice consul in Los
Angeles, in denouncing the investments
of Englishmen in Antelope valley. Col.
J. Drew Gay and Mr. Elliott had pur
chased some 50.000 acres in that section
at $1 an acre, which was subsequently
reinforced by the purchase of 13,000
acres additional at the same price.
Some of this land, subdivided, and un
der plans of colonization when C.White
Mortimer raised his assinine bray in the
English press, was resold to English
colonists for $2 or *3 an acre, pending
the London Telegraph's experiment of
making paper out of the yucca palm, a
species of cactus that grows out on the
Mojave plains. While Mr. Mortimer, for
a consideration, had much to say in
commendation of the Rose place, which
was then loaded down with the red
and white scale, he had nothing but
senseless vituperation to extend to the
intelligent plans of the Messrs. Gay and
Elliott, who figured as the representa
tives of the greatest evening paper on
earth, the London Telegraph. The
Herald pointed out the inconsistency
of this financial fakir, who reported
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, 1890.
most rosily for propositions that in
volved "dead horse," and who never had
a word to say in favor of propositions in
which the British investor could have
made, in two or three years, from two to
twenty-five thousand per cent. During
the past week Mr. Elliott sold on ac
count of the Lawson estate—both the
proprietor of the London Evening Tele
graph and Col. Gay are dead —seven
thousand acres of the original purchase
in Antelope valley to the Rock Creek
Irrigation company for $25 an acre, the
original purchase price being $1 an acre.
Probably few English investors would
look for a larger return for capital in
vested for a very short time than is in
volved in these figures. They mean
that on the surface of the globe there is
no such opportunity for the profitable
investment of money as exists to
day in lais Angeles county.
AS IT LOOKS TO US.
There are few people who have lived
in Southern California for a long time
who are not aware of the fact that rob
bery and perjury are incidents of daily
life here in as full a measure as led the
framers of the Mosaic law to say to the
Israelites struggling toward Mt. Pisgah
and the Promised Land, "Thou shalt
not steal," and, "Thou shalt not bear
false witness against thy neighbor." In
our local columns we give a resume of
the Edelman warrant robberies. There
is no man in Los Angeles county,
who is a cubit high in stature,
and who knows enough to go in out
of the rain, who does not know that the
county has been robbed, and robbed
shamelessly, in every detail of these mat
ters which are now on trial. There has
been something indescribably infamous
in every detail of these swindling opera
tions against the county. Our accom
plished fellow-citizen, the Hon. "-tephen
M. White, if he were district attorney,
would send every one of the forgers to
the penitentiary. Yet he will get up as
the attorney of these people and strain
every nerve to have them acquit
ted, and judging by the past, he
will succeed. Why should these Edel
mans be allowed to rob the community ?
Why should the Republican party be
permitted to escape the consequences of
its great outrages on common honesty
and partisan responsibility ? And echo
will answer, "Why?" There is too
much of this disgusting travesty of law,
and too much successful boodling, to
please the people of Los Angeles county.
The results which follow upon such a
scheme are not unexpected. An ar
raigned forger gets up in his place in a
felon's dock; and, instead of hiding his
guilty head, and asking the mercy of
his wronged fellow citizens, he turns
his tainted tongue against a press which
has been all too merciful towards him;
and is permitted, after arraigning his
betters, with no forgery uncanceled—a
forgery which must have been com
mitted by somebody, and which was
probably committed by the fellow that
got the money —to walk into the light of
heaven a free man. Very likely
there was no forgery in the
Damron case. Very likely the
$2200, which was drawn from the county
treasury by the Edelman forgeries,
ought to have been lost to the taxpayers
of Los Angeles county in any event.
But there are a great many people who
will not think so; and who will think,
in addition, that with six superior courts
in full play in Los Angeles county there
ought to be a little law, to say nothing
Mk. Blame, Bince the late election, is
certainly a much more important factor
in the Republican party than he was
six months ago. He was taken into the
cabinet on sufferance, aud he has been
little more than a cipher in it Until the
past few days. He has been out of
sympathy with the party on
nearly every great issue, and
has openly fought with his people,
on some of the most pronounced fea
tures of their policy. His ideas were
sneered at and their author was snub
bed for propounding them. He is now
master of the situation, and will rise in
influence in the party again until he be
comes its most commanding figure once
more. Will he be the party's leader
and standard bearer in 1892? Hardly,
There is no reason in the world why
a square Democratic ticket should not
sweep the city of Los Angeles. Demo
crats always give that degree of reform
which is embodied in honesty and good
government. The voter knows that in
a Democrat he has a guardian of society ;
and that in most of the Republicans he
haj a boodler enemy. With either Hon.
Thomas B. Brown or Dr. Joseph Kurtz
for mayor the Democracy would have a
The mature advice of the Herald to
the Democracy is, "stand by your
guns." There is enough reform in the
party of Jackson and Jefferson to start
half a dozen callow parties in existence.
This thing of originating a party every
other day has become tedious ; but, nev
ertheless, the ordinary records seem-to
make the boy asleep in the rushes some
thing that stirs the heart of the cast

The Muskroot for Cholera.
The Russian government has sent sev
eral physicians to Asia Minor to make
experiments in the treatment of cholera
with ferula 6umbul, or muskroot, a
plant which grows in Turkestan and
which possesses certain anti-spasmodic
properties. It formerly enjoyed quite a
reputation in Germany and Russia as a
remedy for cholera, but has fallen out
of use in- recent times. Even its name ia
now unknown to most practitioners in
those countries, although the plant is
still regarded popularly as an efficient
diarrhoea medicine.—Chicago News.
Queen Natalie a Physical Wreck.
Queen Natalie's, of Servia, troubles
have told terribly upon her. In two
years she has aged twenty. It is said
that she suffers from want of 'sleep and
has recourse to opiates. Her beauty is
gone and with it her youth, and the
wreck of her former self is all that is
left to tell the tale of her life. She is the
personification of a political riddle, in
the solving of which a nation is rendered
wretched, a queen outraged and a moth
er disconsolate.—New York Telegram.
Worth Their Weight in Pound Notes.
Many parents are apt to consider their
daughters worth their weight in gold,
but a Scotch gentleman estimated his

have been slimmer than her sister, for
she got only £51,200, while the younger

The Best iv the World.
Senator Henry C. Nelson, of New York, says
"On the 27th of February, 1883,1 was taken
with a violent pain in the region of the kid
neys I suffered such agony that I could hardly
stand up. A» soon as possible I applied two
Allcock's Porous Plasters, one over each
kidney, and laid down. In an hour, to my sur
prise and delight, the pain had vanished and I
was well. I wore the plasters for a day or two
as a precaution, and then removed "them I
have been using Allcock's Porous Plasters
in my mmiiy for the last ten years, and have
always L.und them the quickest and best ex
ternal remedy for colds, strains and rheumatic
affectio'is From ray experience I believe they
are the best plasters in the world."
