WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1890. We are glad to know that the reporter who used the word "exiguity," stum bling under the weight of his dire of fence, fell on his head last night at the bottom of a dark pit, and ingioriously expired. There will be no funeral, for the scribe who would dig up such an ob eoletism and use it in a common local, should be left to cross the dark river without the benefit of "book, bell or candle,"; , If the city council would make itself useful for once, and pass a stringent ordinance against this kind of offence. Los Angeles publishers would undoubtedly soften towards it as a body. "Exiguity!" Phtcbus, what a word for the columns of a popular daily newspa per! Whkjj the Democratic convention meets to nominate a city ticket there will be some very interesting discussions upon the precinct club plan of selecting delegates. Whilst this plan has some merits, it;is open to the most dangerous abuses, ahd notwithstanding the pri mary election system is also subject to abuses, yet it is far preferable to the precinct club system. The primary elec tion is open to all Democrats to cast their votes; but the club plan ostracizes all Democrats who fail, for any reason, to get their names upon the club rolls. It is too late to take issue with the pre cinct club plan at the present time, but the convention will undoubtedly take the question up and determine whether the Democracy of Los Angeles wishes to imitate the system which in San Fran cisco has led the party to defeat. The rank and file of the party will see to it that their primary power shall not be wrested from them by any system which is calculated to breed bosses and en trench abuses. The election yesterday resulted in favor of the closing of saloons on Sun days. The* council will perhaps con sider this vote merely advisory, and shift the responsibility of passing a clos ing ordinance upon their successors, now so soon to be elected. At least we infer this much from the timid and vacillat ing way in which they have dealt with this question from the start. It was their duty in the beginning to either pass or refuse to pass a closing ordinance, And not put the city to the expense of holding a special election, so as to shift the responsibility from their own shoul ders. The council has been timid where it should have been straightforward and firm, and bold and rash where it should have been slow and cautious. It has not hesitated to harass property holders with premature street work against the most pronounced protests of the victims, nor held back when valuable franchises were to be granted against the will of the people; but when it came to a measure upon which they should have acted with decision, they have shown the white feather at every point. The Indian Messiah has been located, and his name is Johnson. He lives on the Walker Lake reservation in Nevada, and, unlike the Christian Savior, who had neither scrip nor scrippage nor a place whereon to lie His head, this deity is rich in cattle and horses and -possessed of great distributive wealth for an aborigine. Notwithstanding his message has been interpreted by the Dakota Indians into one of war and vengeance, a leading disciple of his who glories in the suave and gentle name of Porcupine, declares that the new aborig inal Christ's doctrine is one of peace and good-will. There is hardly any chance that Savior Johnson will carry his gos pel of peace personally into the haunts of the bloodthirsty Sioux, who are in dulging in the orgies of fire-water and the war dance, and preparing to wipe out the pale-faces from the face of the earth; but there is quite a possibility that the wild denizens of Dakota plains may work themselves into a murderous frenzy against the frontier settlements and only be returned to the calm de lights of reason and reservation hash by the persuasive bullet and the con vincing saber of Uncle Sam's exhorters in blue. Some points which have been devel oped in the Edelman forgery trial have been thus far overlooked. We allude, first, to the practice which seems to have obtained in the county treasurer's office of cashing warrants with alias en dorsements. Why should the treasurer establish a more lax rule in the endorse ment of warrants than banks require in the endorsement of checks? Would any bank cash a check endorsed "John Smith, by. James Brown?" We opine not. And, second, if James Brown should draw money on a check of that kind, and it turned out that he had no authority from John Smith to sign his name, is there any doubt that Brown would be amenable to the law for felony? THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 19, 1890. Is there any element of exculpation from forgery when a man draws money on a check, or on a warrant, by virtue of a false endorsement made by himself, because he has merely acknowledged the fact of the signature underneath the forged name ? We trow not. Now let us see whether "cousin" Cohn cannot be at least made to disgorge the money he has wrongfully obtained from the county, even if a criminal action cannot be made to lie against him. IS IT AT BEDROCK NOW? A Pomona paper the other day had this paragraph: "The ten-acre apricot and peach orchard formerly belonging to A. B. Nash, was bought yesterday by H. A. Koss, for $6000. The property has been bought and 6old three times since July, and has increased $1800 in value. B. V. Whipp was the last owner, and he made $1000 on his investment of forty-two days. Mr. Ross and his wife are from Manitoba, and they will imme diately remove to Pomona and will build a residence adjoining the orchard." There are three things to note in this paragraph : The price paid for this de ciduous orchard without improvements is $500 per acre; that is an in crease since last summer of nearly two-thirds, and of $1000 in six weeks; the purchase is for invest ment and a residence will be built on the place at once. There are a few other noteworthy facts. If the trees were in good order, the crops of last summer very easily netted their owner $100 to $150 per acre. These figures make the purchase very cheap. Next year's crop will recoup the buyer in a large portion of his outlay. With good care, such as one man with one horse can easily give by working an average of two hours a day, these ten acres ought to yield a man yearly $1000 to 12000, and if he dries the fruit himself the gross receipts will be more than doubled. Here is a very handsome living for a family at an outlay of not over $7000 all told, and very little labor necessary. If the above were a series of isolated facts it would not be significant of much in any way. But it is not so. All the facts are typical in all respects of what is going on daily in all parts of this sec tion. First, there is a healthy demand or good lands, improved and unim proved, at fair prices. Secondly, there are large numbers of sales being made in these classes of property all over this section, for invest ment by actual settlers, who proceed at once to make a permanent home. Thirdly, prices are hardening, and even rising steadily. Property cannot be bought today as cheap as a year ago by twenty per cent.; bargains are grow ing very scarce, and the outlook is for a decided advance in values before the coming spring is gone. Fourth, the reason for all this is the realization that has taken possession of the people's mind of the intrinsic value of the property of this section. The movement is based on a careful estimate of returns from crops. The people are laying hold of these facts in a very pos itive form. The Herald gave a notice last Saturday of the closing of a deal for ranch property below the city. The deed went on record on Monday. It was the Burlingame ranch, near Coinp ton, 271 acres, selling for $54,000. It is raw land mostly, but it brings $200 per acre. It is regarded by conservative men as a very good buy. We have chronicled a good many signifi cant sales of late, and there are a num ber of large deals now pending, the con summation of which will astonish the slow thinkers. The fact is this movement is not pecu liar to Southern California. In San Francisco there is an absolute boom in city property. Senator Fair, who has known the bay city since Mount Diablo was a hole in the ground, is credibly reported to have invested $5,000,000 in city property in the last year or two. That sum was paid for vacant lots, or those on which the improve ments went for nothing. Last week a Boston man landed in San Francisco, and in a few days closed a deal for nine blocks of what were known until the other day as outside lands, lying be tween Golden Gate park and the Cliff house. He paid a cool million for these vacant lots. The fact is the eyes of all the country are on this state. It is a foregone con clusion that there is to be a dense popu lation here in time. San Francisco will be one of the three cr four largest cities on this continent. Southern California will be the densest and most prosperous population in the whole world. The area of semi-tropic lands is very limited. The contention for them by the middle of this decade will be very sham. Los Angeles will, next to San Francisco, be the most impoitant city on the coast. From the Arioyo Seco to the sea will be thickly peopled. . When it shall have doubled its present population what will be the value of city lots? Here are the salient facts in the situ ation. Cast a cursory glance at the above facts, and the conclusion is inevitable— real estate is cheaper now in Los Angeles and vicinity than it ever will be again. DlED—Albert L. Howard, son of F. H. How ard and Arm Ida Loaiza de Howard, aged H years and 2 months, of diphtheria. In this City on Sunday, 10th Inst., and was privately interred on the same day. We call attention to the notice of the death of the infant son of Judge F. H. Howard for reasons of public interest. The child was found to have diphtheria on Monday, the 10th inst. Doctors C. B. Jones and H. H. Maynard were called in, and they immediately notified the health office, the house was placarded at once, and every precaution taken to pre vent contagion. After a heroic strug gle upon the part of the physicians and parents, the child succumbed on Sun day morning. Then the noble mother gave up her dear dead for strictly pri vate burial within eight hours, and the house was immediately fumigated and disinfected. If all physicians and parents would act in this manner in like cases, this dread disease would never spread, and could be stamped out effectually. It is, however, too commonly the case that both physicians and parents are to blame for a weak concealment of the facts and a neglect of the sanitary pre cautions required by law to prevent the spread of this malignant disease. Such paltering conduct cannot be too severely condemned, wherever it may be found to exist, and the safety of many precious lives in the community elemands that the law shall be strictly obeyed in every case and at the sacrifice of all private feelings. Just think of it, the Express setting itself up as an authority upon journal istic ethics! It makes one laugh. We believe that sheet is so saturated with partisan prejudice that if his satanic majesty should visit "the glimpses of moon" under the guise of a Republican, it would fall down and worship. AMUSEMENTS. Clara Morris at the Los Angeles Theater. Among the kind words spoken of Clara Morris, the great emotional actress, who is so soon to appear here, the following from the San Francisco Chroaicle will bear reading: "The Baldwin theater was tilled last night when Clara Morris made her reappearance as Camille after several years'absence. It is compliment more to the actress than to the play, for Camille has long since ceased to draw with anybody else in the leading role. Although year by year the false senti ments of the play shows up plainly, still up to last night it has not lost its power and draws" tears and applause. The third act almost uses up the hand kerchiefs, and what was left of them were soaked with tears over the death scene. Miss Morris waM called out be- I fore the curtain on most acts and gener j ally established the fact that she is still 1 the star emotional actress. The per fermance was out shortly after 11 o'clock, which show such a change in Miss Mor ris' methods that it is specially worth mentioning, that it aided mate rially in the success of the evening. Miss Morris has not been for years so strong and well as she is now. For once the advance announcements have told the truth. She is much stouter, she has lost a great deal of the nervousness which used to make her overdo the scene in Camille ; she is more self-con troled, and gives to Camille a poise she has not since the days of her best health. Since we have%een her we have seen Sara Bernhardt, but comparison is not quite just, or at least the parts must be taken from different points of view in criticising it. Miss Morris is a magnetic actress, who in her emotional scenes moves the audience in an extraordinary way, and her Camille today is just as full of that magnetism and eli'ective as it ever was. In good health it becomes more genuinely artistic representation, a little more of real human nature than it was. Miss Morris brings us an excel lent company." Miss Morris will open at the Los An geles next Monday for a season of a week. At the Grand. Professor Herrmann's New Trang-At lantiques will occupy the stage of the Grand opera house, five nights and a Thanksgiving and Saturday matinee, commencing next Tuesday evening. The company come here direct from their great triumph in San Francisco, and comprises a higher class of specialty performers than that which Professor Herrmann sent upon the road last season. Weak Lungs Made Strong. Persons who stay in-doors all the time and [ lean over a counter or a desk, sooner or later discover that their lungs are giving out. Eras tus R. Sutherland, editor of The Eastern State Journal, White Plains, New York, writes: "I have used Allcock's Porocb Plasters in Imy family since 1866. In that year I had an ! attack of pneumonia from which 1 was not cx i pected to recover. My lungs were left in a very weak state. I commenced using Allcock's PORors Plasters, wearing them constantly three months, two on the breast and two on the I back. The result was surprising, at least i o me. I The pains in my lungs had left me, and I felt i like "a giant refreshed with new wine." Hundreds Say So. Any good thing which performs its ' function with half the quantity, is | double the value of a poor thing that I requires twice as much for effect. This : truth is fully exemplified, as follows : N. Ogden, Lenawee Co., Mich.,) May 17, 1890. j ! "The virtues of your most invaluable j medicine, St. Jacobs Oil, compel me to give my testimony in legard to what ; one-half bottle did for me. About a year i ago I had a swelled knee with rheuma ! lisrn and expected to be a cripple for j life. Befoie I had used one-half bottle, I had no more pain, the swelling was gone, and I am as well as ever. I be lieve it is the best pain-destroyer in the universe." J. M. L. Porter. P.
