The Forum for November contains an
extremely interesting article from tiie
pen of S. M. Cullom upon the six new
states which have been admitted to the
union within a year, viz.: South Dakota,
North Dakota, Montana, Washington,
Idaho and Wyoming.
The average American feels no small
amount of pride in the majestic size of
his country and in the unexampled ad
vances which every section of it has
made both in population and industrial
progress during the last century. Even
statistics are in a great measure relieved
of that ordinary dryness when, as in
Mr. Cullom's article, they afford a
comprehensive index to the unprecedent
ed attainments the west has made with
in the last decade.
The first state to be admitted after the
formation of the union by the thirteen
original founders of the republic was
Vermont, in 1791. Just one hundred
years have elapsed, and during that
time thirty-one new stars have been
added to the national flag. The admis
sion of this last ''brilliant sextet," as
Mr. Cullom styles them, marks the
close of a most momentous century of
the world's history, and most probably
the beginning of another even more im
The area of the two Dakotas is 150,932
square miles —South Dakota containing
76,620, and North Dakota 74,312. The
increase in population of the twin states
has been phenomenal. In 1860 the pop
ulation of the territory was 4,837; in
1890 it is 600,000—the increase in the
past ten years being 343.86 per cent.
The Dakotas are pre-eminently agricul
tural states. In 1800 but 1)45 bushels of
wheat were grown in the entire terri
tory. In 1888 it was 38,036.000 bushels ;
the increase being 1234.53 per cent. The
total value oi the farm products of Da
kota territory in 1800 was $375; in 1888
they amounted to $58,709,482. In gold,
silver, tin, coal and other metals and
minerals the Dakotas are rich. In 1888
Dakota's output of gold amounted to
$3,150,000. They are both well watered
and contain a good supply of timber.
Montana, the third state in the order
of admittance, has an area of 143,776
square miles. In 1870 the population
was 20,595. By the recent census it is
placed at 200,000, a gain in tlie last twenty
years of 410.74 per cent. In 1888 the
total assessment of the territory was
$67,430,533.70, while eight years before it
was but $18,609,802.
Montana's stock ranches are of greater
importance than its agricultural inter
ests. The yearly wool product is about
15,000,000 pounds. The state's chief
source of wealth, however, is mining,
and ainee its settlement, twenty-five
years ago, it has produced upwards of
$200,000,000 in the precious and other
metals. In 1889 sixty-eight mills, smelt
ers and concentrators, with a combined
capacity of not less than 5000 tons a day,
were in operation iv the territory. Mon
tana maintains a system of free schools.
Washington, the smallest of the new
states, containing 69,994 square miles,
had a population in 1870 of but 23,995.
By the census of 1890 it is 348,000, hav
ing increased 303.28 per cent. This
state leads the new states in manufac
tures. In 1889 the tax-paying property
of the territory was valued at $124,795,
--449, showing an increase in two years of
more than 100 per cent.
Washington stands in the front rank
as an agricultural state. Iv 1888 the
wheat crop amounted to 0,000,000 bush
els, an increase for the past ten years of
368.42 per cent. The value of farm pro
ducts in 1860 was $159,433; in 1888 they
had reached $12,015,713. Washington
contains a harbor which it is by no
means improbable may yet be the New
York bay of the Pacific coast. From
Puget sound wheat is shipped to Europe,
and lumber to all points on the Pacific
coast. Tea is imported direct from
China and Japan. The coal consumed
in San Francisco, and other portions of
California, which has hitherto come
largely from Australia, comes now
mainly from Puget sound. ,
The state contains largo deposits of
coal, and in 1889 it had twelve devel
oped mines. Gold and silver, iron ore,
building stone and limestone are found
in Washington. The whole western
slope of the Cascade mountains, down
to the Pacific ocean, is covered with a
dense growth of the finest timber. In
1889, 750,000,000 feet of lumber were cut
for export. -The fishery interests of the
state are also of vast importance. Sal
mon is the chief product, the quantity
packed during the year 1889 being
valued at 81,322,500.
Idaho haa an area of 80,294 square
miles. In 1870 it had a population of
14,999: by the last census this
had increased to 84,229, an in
crease of 158.29 per cent. The as-
Betted valuation of real and personal
property, for the fiscal year 1889, was
$23,949,039.05, and probably its true
valuation is more than double this
amount. It is estimated that 600,000
acres of land are already under cultiva
tion, $2,000,000 having been spent for
irrigating canals. Stock-raising is one
of the important pursuits of the state,
and the total value of live stock of all
i kinds is nearly $12,000,000. The area of
grazing lands is about 20,000,000 acres.
Mining is the chief industry of the
state; gold, silver, lead and copper be
ing the principal metals mined. From
1802 to 1869, inclusive, the total produc
tion of the valuable metals in Idaho
amounted to $157,720,9^2.84.
Its farm productions in 1888 were
valued at $3,198,947 ; the increase being
111.10 per cent, upon the production of
1880. Large belts of forest lands lie
within its limits. Idaho in 1889 had 294
school bouses, with 12,678 scholars en
rolled. It has twenty-one public libra
" Wyoming, the last of the new states
to enter the union, contains 97,883
square miles. It had in 1870 a popula
tion of 9118, which has now increased
to 95,000, showing an increase of 35(1.97
per cent, in the last twenty years. The
state contains nearly the entire Yellow
stone national park, but exercises no
jurisdiction over it, as it is a govern
ment reservation. The total assessed
value of all the properly in the territory
in 188"8 was $33,338,549.
Coal is found in even* county in vast
quantities, the output in 1888 exceeding
$5,000,000. Petroleum is found in
various quarters; copper, lead, tin,
asbestos and mica exist in
large quantities ; the supply of
building stone is abundant. It also
possesses about 10,000,000 acres of tim
ber land. Wyoming is especially adapt
ed to the live-stock industry. Horse
raising is a profitable investment and
the state contains about 150,000 horses.
The farm productions of Wyoming in
1880 were valued at $42,700; in 1888, at
$1,263,776; the increase in the past eight
years being 239.37 per cent.
Education in Wyoming is compulsory.
It is the first state to come into the na
tional union with a provision in its con
stitution granting the right of suffrage
to women, and the experiment is looked
upon by the country at large with much
The new states had a total railway
mileage in ISB9, of 10,117, being about
one-sixteenth of the total railway mile
age of the United States. In 1880, but
nine years before, they had only 2,338
The foregoing figures afford but a
mere outline of the giant strides these
but lately virgin territories have made
with the limits of less than a genera
tion. What they may be reasonably ex
pected to represent of population and
wealth before even the completion of
the decade on which we have entered, is
almost bewildering to contemplate.
The political situation in this city has
assumed a very interesting phase. In
the face of the fact that the present Re
publican administration, in nearly all
its parts, has made itself so obnoxious
to the people that they have denounced
it as never before an administration has
been denounced, the Republican muni
cipal convention yesterday had the
temerity to renominate all except one of
the present charter officers or their
underlings, and presented but a single
new name, that of J. \V. Hinton for as
sessor. Hazard for mayor, Teed for
clerk, Johnson for treasurer, Lopez for
auditor, Thompson for tax collector und
McFarland for attorney, are all re-nomi
nated. Lowndes for engineer is the
deputy of the present incumbent, and
Hutchinson for street superintendent is
one of the taxeaters who has been draw
ing a fat salary to help the present offi
cial to carry on his work. Thus we see
that in the charter ticket, all the way
through, Monsieur Tonson has come
again. The people hardly expected to
be treated with this furnishing forth of
the funeral baked meats of the present
administration at the new political
As if the grip of the ring on the Re
publican party were not sufficiently
demonstrated in the nominations for the
chaiter officers, its tenacity of pur
pose is further exemplified in the fact
that four of the present members have
been renominated for the city council.
We have McLain from the second ward,
Bonsall from the third, Brown from the
seventh, and Summerland from the
eighth. There's richness for you!
Nearly one-half of thememberßof a body
that has been malodorous in the nostrils
of the people ever since it came into
power is forced upon a suffering com
munity for re-election. If the Republi
can party can carry this load successfully
through, then the people of this city
well deserve all the malgovernment they
are sure to get.
Mayor Hazard has played at shuttle
cock with the saloon-closing ordinance
in a manner that has caused both
sides to look upon him as one
of the most brazen trimmers for
office that has ever performed the
two-horse act before a disgusted public.
It is difficult to see how the closers or
anti-closers can vote for him. In this
matter he has exhibited so shameless
and inordinate a craving for re-nomina
tion that whatever he has done during
his term meriting commendation has
been completely neutralized or entirely
wiped out. However correct and equit
able his proposition may be about re
ducing the license of saloon keepers one
seventh, if they are forced to close one
day in the week, everybody knows that
it was put forth as a mere piece of polit
ical clap-trap. He haß no right to make
bargains with the council contingentup
on his performing his own sworn duty.
If a man who thus trifles with im
portant public questions is successful
we shall miss our guess. We believe
that if the Democratic convention will
put up one of its strong men against
him to-morrow, tbe now-you-see-me
now-you-don't candidate will sustain a
signal defeat. There is no lack of mayor
alty timber in the party whom the peo
ple will vote for against this king
of political trimmers. We have in our
mind just now a few names that would
lead it to victory. There is Captain C.
E. Thorn, who made one of the best
mayors Los Angeles ever had. Then we
have T. E. Rowan, J. C. Kays, A. Glas
sell, Sr., J. Shirley Ward, Dr. Bryant,
L. T. Garnsey and H. W. O'Melveny,
whom we can just now recall, and there
are many others, whose names will oc
j cur to our readers. We believe that
j any of these gentlemen could, under the
circumstances, make a winning fight
against the Republican nominee.
II Los Ang»les is to have a pure, ca
pable and economical government, it
must get it from the Democratic party.
It is manifest from the nominations of
yesterday's convention that the ring has
possession of the machinery of the Re
publican party, and that no change, no
relief from malgovernment can be had
from that source, and we believe that
the people are ready to elect the Demo
cratic ticket from top to bottom. All
that tomorrow's convention has to do is
to put up good men sod it will win.

I Further Facts of Development in a Mag
i ieal Section—The Example Catching—
A Great Center of Wealth,with Beauty
on the Side—Th» Icnpdishman to tho
Rescue- The Work of the Santa Fe
! People.
As intimated yesterday, it is impossible
|to give, in the brief compass of a single
| article, anything like a resume of the in
teresting facts one learns about River
side—facts that ramify into a hundred
! heads.
1 Htre we have a settlement embracing
\ forty-seven hundred people, according to
the official census of the United States.
llt is quite likeiy that, with the persons
j who were missed by the enumerator, and
j those who have come to Riverside since,
I the number has been increased to over
| five thousand. Last year fifteen hun
j died carloads of oranges went forward
from Riverside to the east. Each car
load consisted of three hundred boxes,
i and the average price per box received
i by the Riverside shipper was at least $2.
We have thus 450,000 boxes, yielding an
income of $000,000. Taking" the large
raisin shipments into the count, with
all other fruits, dryed and canned, and
it is not it strained assumption to say
that at least $250,000 additional came
into Riverside last year from abroad—
and into a settlement that is as yet iv its
To get an adequate idea of the way the
: thing stands we will take the present
i year. The crop is enormous. The state
■ ment that Riverside has sustained any
appreciable damage through the late
"Santa Ana" ie a mistake, as I can tes
tify to from personal observation. The
trees are loaded down with fruit, and
; the oranges are unusually large and
I promising looking. There is no question
I but that the Rivcrsiders will this year
I send out fully two thousand carloads of
that staple. This means six hundred
I thousand boxes. At $2 a box one
j million, two hundred thousand dollars
will be realized from this single crop. The
outlook is even better than that, for the
reason that prices promise to he spe
cially good, and $2.50 a box is likely to
be the ruling figure ior the fruit on the
trees. But we will not press that point,
and allow just enough in excess of $2 a
box to make the $1,200,000 a million
and a quarter dollars. Add $250,000 for
all other fruits, raisins, canned and
dried fruits, and we have a community
of five thousand souls averaging $300 It
year for every man, woman and child in
it; and live thousand acres of land,
every acre of which, rough and smooth,
is earning $300 per annum.
Nor is that all. The fact should not
for a moment be lost sight of that not
more than one-half of these five thou
! sand acres of orchard have reached the
! producing stage. Many of the groves
| are in all stages of growth anterior to
I the point of profit. And still this does
! not tell the whole story. The trees that
j are in bearing are by no means mature.
It is not an exaggeration to say
| that their yielding capacity will be
doubled. We are thus confronted
with the bewildering proposition
that, if Riverside were still to remain in
the same five thousand hands in which
its ownership lies now, and all the
orchards were advanced to the stage of
matuse bearing, this income of $300 per
capita would in all likelihood ultimately
rise to $900 for every man, woman and
child in that enchanted circle.
fllow It Is Done.
When I started out to tell the facts—
and I deal only with facts—about River
side, I was determined not to be brow
beaten from telling the truth simply be
cause the details looked incredible.
Southern California is a landof miracles,
and the circumstance that a thing ap
pears strange does not make it untrue
to sensible people. Old Don Benito
Wilson, of the San Gabriel valley, once
told the writer that he sold $1750"worth
of oranges off of a single acre of his
oldest grove in one year. It sounded
strange to me, but I "knew that my in
formant was incapable of an untruth,
and swallowed the statement, and have
since seen many confirmations of it.
Riverside is a fairy ground, and for
the genii of the Arabian Nights we
must simply substitute the~ genius
of Judge North and his successors. It
really has required a high order of
genius to create the richest spot in the
world out of a sheep range in a period of
j seventeen or eighteen years, and to grow
; avenues that cannot be surpassed in
j Prospect park, Brooklyn, or Central
park, New York, in such a brief space.
To understand the enigma of River
side, the fact must be borne in mind
that the class of people brought there by
Judge North possessed considerable
means, marked intelligence and that
faith which moves mountains. They
! belonged to*the nil desperandum guild,
and "never say die" was an instinct
which they couid never shake off. The
soil of Riverside does not explain tlie
miracles of production reported from that
I place. There are places in the San Ga
briel valley where the soil is ten times as
good. The soil of Redlands, where the
lateat miracles of citrus production are
being worked out, is away ahead of that
of Riverside. Tlie latter is in many
cases a hard adobe, in other places an
almost intractable clay; but "The Man
with his Elbow," to employ an aborig
inal form of speech, was in Riverside
from the opening day of its settlement,
and the elbow was well supplied with
grea=e in its every joint.
The people of Riverside did not enter
into their project as a scheme of fancy
farming, although they have produced
fancy and even fanciful results,
to "which the almighty dollar and
the American double eagle lend
almost irridescent hues. They
went in to win and to make money, and
they coerced fortune. In their deter
mined road to the prosaic they achieved
the poetic.
To show how practical the makers of
these scenes of horticultural enchant
ment are, we will merely state the fact
that it remained for Riverside orange
growers to find out that the orange, like
any other plant, needed some fertilizer.
Consequently, when lie saw his tree,
notwithstanding an abundant supply of
water, begin to show signs of ill-health
—themost infallible indication of which
is losing its deep green color —the Riv
erside orchardist immediately sought a
remedy, and he found it in manure. As
a consequence, the sheep manure of Los
Angeles and San Diego counties is nearly
all finding its way to Riverside.
During the present year they have im
ported four hundred carloads of this
valuable fertilizer from the counties
named, together with many other fer
tilizers, such as guano, etc. The River
side oranga grower, who makes from
$000 to $2000 per acre a j/ear from his
groves, has learned that the expenditure
of $50 an acre in enriching his land
means wealth. Very few Angelefios
have learned this as yet. The great suc
cess of our neighbors has been made in
many cases with a soil much poorer
than ours, and with a rainfall scarcely
a fourth of ours, the Riverside soil
withal having a thirst as consuming as
that of old Jack Falstaff for sack or can
ary. But enough. The subject is iuex
; haustible.
The English Syndicate.
Genius for development was by no
means confined to Judge North. Amongst
the other ingenious and enterprising
men attracted to Riverside was one Mat
thew Gage, the originator of the Gage
canal. This man recently consum
mated a scheme of development
almost as daring as the original
plan and settlement of Riverside, and
it promises to be jjearly, if not quite as
successful, as that superb programme.
Gage knew that, to the east of River
side, there was a large tract of land quite
as good as any which now commands
from $1000 to" $3000 an acre, according
to the improvements. He saw that all
that was needed to make this a big
thing in the money line was to guaran
tee that water should be placed on it in
| sufficient quantities. AVith that aque
| ous desideratum once assured, all else
; would follow, as in the plans of Messrs.
i North and Evans.
To think with Matthew Gage was to
do. We understand that he comes of
good north country Irish stock—the
stock that lies at the bottom of the pros
berity of Pittsburgh and western Penn
-1 sylvania. He first secured the land,
I and then he hied him to those regions
j of perennial water supply—those sources
i eternal in the rock-ribbed mountains —
j that lie back of old San Bernardino.
! Through artesian wells, which there are
las abundant as the "How of Iser rolling
j rapidly," Mr. Gage got all the water he
p Having the land and the water, Mr.
1 Gage naturally next looked around for
Englishman. Of course, he found
him; garni, with a view of not seeming
to want the earth, Mr. G. sold out to a
syndicate of bold, blarsted, bloody Brit
ons, for a cool million dollars.
That is where the case stands just
now as respects Mr. Gage, his land and
his canal. The English syndicate that
purchased the possessions of Mr. Gage,
at this consoling figure, are now going
ahead on a colossal plan. They have
laid out their four thousand acres on
lines of precision ; and they have pro
jected one street, called Victoria ave
nue, which is as wide as Pennsylvania
' avenue, in Washington City. It looks
jto be at least two hundred feet broad,
j The land in its original state was worth
probably $5 or $0 an acre. These Eng
\ lishmen propose to charge $250 an acre
' for a water-right, which means an
abundant one. Land and water they
will hold at from $450 to $500 an acre.
! They reason that lands which will yield,
in six or seven years, from $000
to $1500 an acre are richly
I worth that price, and they are right,
j The Englishmen themselves will supply
i purchasers for the land, and they will
Ihe more than content. They know a
good thing when they see it; "and lands
that will some day pay interest on $10,
--000 an acre they consider cheap at $450
to $500 an acre.
The Work of the Santa Fe—Develop
ment on all Hands.
It is sometimes worth while to give a
thought to the great work done by the
railways in bringing Southern Califor
nia to the front, and making life eas} r
and profitable to us. The Herald has
frequently had occasion to speak of the
tremendous prosperity which followed
the extension of the Southern Pacific
railway through Arizona to New Or
leans. I had the pleasure of being, by
invitation, one of Mr. Towne'a party to
celebrate the junction of the Sunset
route with the Atchison, Topeka and
Santa Ec railway at Doming. Since
then this latter corporation has done
wonders in railway building throughout
Arizona, New Mexicoand Southern Cali
fornia. The Southern California rail
way is a close connection—at least
a cousin german, if not an offspring—
of the Santa Fe, and that cor
poration has ramified all over Los An
geleß, San Bernardino, Orange and San
Diego counties. Its recently completed
Belt system, by which you can go up to
San Bernardino by way of Orange and
the cafion of the Cajon de Santa Ana,
and return by the foothills which at
Monrovia are left for a straight shoot for
Pasadena, has already done wonders for
the section traversed by it. In the
Cajon de Santa Ana, at Yorbaand in its
approaches, ono gets a glimpse of the
old time life of Southern California,
with the Mexican caballero and his
hacienda, as an objective point. At
South Kiverside one strikes that beauti
ful and remunerative ideal of the orange
grove, which hangs to one until River
side proper is reached. South River
side, as a producer of the citrus fruits,
will be the creation of the Temescal
creek, which takes its rise in the neigh
borhood of the celebrated Temescal tin
mines. I learned that three hundred
tin miners from Cornwall will be
on this ledge inside of three
months. If the stories told of its
wealth of tin ore are true a bonanza
of colossal proportions developed
there shortly, which will contribute not
a little to the growth of South Riverside.
The California Southern railway has also
made possible the development of the
splendid industry of the California Clay
company, which makes pipe not sur
passed in California.
It was the Santa Fe company, through
its branch, the California Southern,
which first thought it worth while to
bid for the orange and raisin shipments
of Riverside. Up till the advent of
these people the orange growers were
obliged to haul their fruit to Colton in
wagons. This enlightened policy of the 1
California Southern has been of great ,
benefit to the producers of that section.
Under the management of the present
chief of the system, Mr. K. H. Wade,
the road has gained in popularity on all
A Last Word.
Riverside is not only growing like a
house-a-fire, but she bids fair to have a
suburb at Casa I'.lanca. Thia place is
called "White House," probably be
cause there is a warehouse there with a
white door and a white sign with black
lettering, and no house nearer white
than a dun color in sight. A great can
ning and drying industry is growing up
there. Cook A Langley, the Earl Fruit
Drying company, and other packers,
have houses there. Six new eastern
fruit packing firms are moving out to
Riverside. Some day that industry will
have grown like the mustard seed of
Christ's parable.
I have said enough to show the tre
mendous energies of development that
are at work on the old sheep pastures of
Riverside. I hope that Los Angeles
orchaidists will study the problems that
struck me in 1113' birds' eye view of Riv
erside. A pilgrimage there of a day or
days, of a week or weeks, or even longer,
could not fail to be both instructive and
profitable to them one and all.
