LET US HAVE GAIETY AT THE PARK.
There is a strong and daily growing
demand in Los Angeles for concerts at
the Westlake park. No city of the
pretensions of Los Angeles should be
■without public amusements. If a place
is "live" it should demonstrate that
fact by being abreast of the times. Any
place is the better for a '"crack" band.
We are now felicitating ourselves on
having a Seventh regiment, which we
may hope, in time, to see rival the
famous organization of that name in
New York city. As we have the nucleus
of "a crack regiment," we can safely
say that we have the beginnings of a
crack regimental band which, if properly
encouraged, will soon not be a whit be
hind any musical organization in San
Francisco. The regular concerts in the
Golden Gate park are a source of peren
nial delight and instruction to the in
habitants of that city. They are a coun
terpoise to hoodlum ruffianism. They
train to esthetic and gentle moods.
•'Music hath charms to soothe
the savage breast." Refinement
follows in its wake as surely
as the sun does the first rosy Hushes in
the eastern heavens. We learn that a
strong movement is on foot to vitalize
the project of Thursday and Sunday
concerts st the Westlake park. The
Pacific Caole road will stand in strongly,
as they should, considering that, on the
occasions of these concerts, their reve
nues would be enormously increased.
The residents of the western portion of
the city can very well afford to do like
wise. 'Our merchants, hotel-keepers,
restaurant-keepers, and all their pa
trons, should do the generous act. The
Westlake park, although in an uncom
pleted shape, is a rarely attractive spot.
The lake, with its boating appliances, is
a, conception in which San Francisco is
behind us. The approaches to it lead
through the most improving portions of
Los Angeles. The breezes that blow in
from old ocean are so exquisitely
tempered that any habitue of Nice
or Mentone would instantly recognize
the superiority of the Los Angeles cli
matic staple. We are not sure but that
it would be right, also, ior the city to
extend a trifling aid to this praise
worthy enterprise. By all means, let us
have these Sunday and Thursday con
certs. Let us have a crack band, a
crack regiment, a crack park and a crack
city, and let us maintain all these de
lightful distinctions to the crack of doom.
The city attorney has reported back
the charter to the council with a num
ber of amendments which experience
has shown will work to the advantage
of the city. The amendments are
mainly in the line of economy. It is
proposed to dispense with the assess
ment of city property by the city and to
use the assessment roll of the county
assessor as the basis of municipal taxa
tion. If any difficulty should arise up
on trial of this method, it is provided
that the council shall have power to
adopt the county assessment or to have
one made out by the city tax and license
collector. It is also proposed to consoli
date the offices of treasurer, assessor and
tax collector in the latter office. The
city attorney suggests that the city
council should have power, as aboard of
equalization, to raise the entire assess
ment in the event that the $1 limit
is adhered to and it should be
found insufficient to meet the de
mands upon the city. The proposi
tion to consolidate certain offices
that are mere sinecures is one that will
meet the general approval of every tax
payer. The charter has overweighted
the city with offices, and a proper regard
to economy demands that many of them
should be merged in other offices in
wiiich there is no great pressure of work
upon the officials filling them. If the
county assessment feature is adopted
and tbe one dollar limit retained, emer
gencies may arise in which it would be
convenient for the council to have the
power to raise the whole assessment.
But it should only be in cases of extreme
urgency. The dollar limit, under an
economical administration of our muni
cipal affairs, ought to supply all the
money that is needed.
The news that Sitting Bull has be
come a "good Indian" will cause any
thing but mourning outside the Bad
lands, lie should have been killed
years ago. The massacre of Custer and
his men was the result of his treachery,
and that great crime has never yet been
expiated. The general belief is that
this wily and blood-thirsty chief was at
the bottom of all the recent disturb
ances in the Dakotas. Had he been seized
at the start tbe spirit would have
been taken out of the ghost dances, and
the frontier settlers would not have
TITE LOS AWnviv* TrT,r M rr> ; TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1890.
been compelled to abandon their homes
and s<>ek safety in the garrisoned forts'
and agencies. Perhaps this tragedy
may precipitate a conflict with the red
skins; but there are troops enough in
the vicinity of the Badlands to sum
marily punish any offensive movement
the Indians may undertake.
EVERY MAN HIS OWN BOYCOTTER.
There seems to be a great tendency of
late, in Los Angeles and elsewhere, to
indulge in the boycotting business. It
is really pursued as a business. It is ou
the principle of universality, and recalls
the refrain of the Barber of .Seville,
"Figaro here, Figaro there, Figaro every
where." The attempt of Judge Arm
strong and his coadjutor up in Sacra
mento to stay the madness will probably
prove futile. In Los Angeles pretty
nearly everything is boycotted, including
common sense. When you get down to a
genuine boycott, there is scarcely a limit
to the annoyance which may result. The
housekeeper tries to boycott the mos
quito—perhaps a possible performance,
in such a beautiful climate as
California. The pretty girl tries
to boycott the flea —an impos
sible performance in any climate, with
perhaps an exception in very low tem
peratures. Fleas know too thoroughly
what is good for them, and obey the
injunction of St. Paul, to hold fast to
that which is good.
Three weeks ago the Los Angeles !
Daily Herald—considering the dignity j
of that journal we speak its name with
bated breath—was a newspaper of j
eight pages, with a rather sickly adver
titling look. Two men, named Stuhr j
and Waldcck, started out to boycott it. I
saying that they represented the Liquor j
Dealers' Association of Los Angeles, j
We believe that they do not tell the
truth. But, whether or no, the people j
do not like that kind of nonsense.
We think that, as a result of j
this proscriptive nonsense, 1 democrats I
will quit patronizing people like that, i
who try to coerce free-born Americans,;
or foreigners who have adopted the |
noble notions of Americans. We feel \
assured that, when reanectable people ;
learn that these fellows have started out i
to boycott the Her ald, they will not buy I
a drop from them. Let them alone, j
Men and Brethren! The less oi the |
goods of Stuhr and Waldcck you buy j
the healthier and wealthier yon will be
a twelvemonth from now! Rebuke at- j
tempted tyranny ! You can easily buy
the rattleberry of the country or con- j
cocted diablerie, from better and less i
tyrannical men!
The Herald believes in everybody !
being his own boycotter. In this oflice !
there is an easily revolving machine that :
can boycott like a house-a-lire, and don't
you forget it!
As to the Liquor Dealers' association,
the Herald, which has never cause
lessly attacked any man, or any vested I
interest, has only one word of advice to
tender to it, and that is embodied in .
the brief formula, "Sit down on your i
fools. Sit down on them with a thud." i
Do not allow a lot of light-headed people j
to take your name in vain.
The Republican party has so tremen
dous a preponderance in the coming
legislature that itcan carry any measure
it pleases. It is unfortunate for the
mass of the people that the political
forces are not more equally balanced,
for there is legislation to be framed this
winter that will affect the policy and in
fluence the political complexion of
the whole state for the next decade.
There is no doubt that the congressional
districts will have to be reconstructed,
for we shall be entitled to another con
gressman under the census. The new
representative will, of course, be given
to the extreme southern counties. The
senatorial and assembly districts will
also have to be readjusted. There have
been great changes in population since
the present apportionment was made.
If the Republican party wants to gerry
mander the districts so as to divide and
destroy Democratic majorities, it will
have the power to do so. But an alert and
aggressive opposition may be looked for
against the easy carrying out of snch a
project. A minority party very often
makes up in vim and audacity for its
lack of members.
Recent developments in the mines in
the San Gabriel canon are of the most
encouraging character. Important
strikes have been made in the Virginia
mine, and as a result a large bar of sil
ver has been placed on view in this city.
The prospects in some of the ledges are
exceedingly fine, and a class of ore has
been struck that will pay well for mill
ing. Expert miners have always held
that rich veins would be uncovered in
these mines. Some of the richest
rock ever seen outside of the
Comstock and other famous ledges, has
been taken out of the mines in the San
Gabriel range. The recent strikes made
in the English syndicate claims have
caused quite a favorable reaction, and
work has been renewed with increased
energy in the shafts and tunnels belong
ing to that company. The other com
panies wiil also be favorably affected by
the new developments, and we may soon
hear of a mining boom all along the line
of the San Gabriel range.
Tun congressional committee that is
in session in this city took the testimony
of some of our people upon the effects
of Chinese immigration, and heard the
statements of some of the United States
officers upon the facility with which the
exclusion act is violated by the illegal
entrance of Chinese into the country
from Lower California. As long as
Mexico permits the Mongolian to have
free access to her territory the exclusion
act will not exclude. There is bnt one
way to keep the Chinese out of the
country and that would be to pass the
Morrow bill, or a bill of a similar char
acter, to deny the right of immigration
to all Chinese, excepting such as would
be considered persona- grata under the
law of nations. Notwithstanding the
efforts that have been made to stop the
smuggling of Coolies across the line
from Lower California, the business has
thriven, and Chinese are flocking into
the country in large numbers every day.
There are multitudes of people who
will be unaffectedly glad to learn that in
no period of its history has the Herald
been so popular or so prosperous as it is
today. That this is no boast will be
made plain to anyone who glances at its
advertising columns. Facts, as dis
played in type on white paper, speak
plainer than words. A few fools, who
claim to be saloon-keepers, have started
in to boycott this paper. They belon"
to the lowest class of the community,
commonly known as the "dive" ele
ment. We see no escape from the ne
cessity of printing an edition of ten
pages daily. Eight was wont to suffice
for us. If these boycotting asses keep
up their work, the edition wiil probably
rise to twenty pages a day. In America
nothing succeeds like success. Look
over the pages of the Herald, ye ene
mies of the truth, and see how it
rises like a cork in water, or a well
ballasted balloon towaids the empyrean!
We ARE indebted to Col. John J. To
bin for the fourth biennial report of the
bureau of labor statistics for the state
of California. It embraces tbe years
1S8S) and 1800. It is a voluminous docu
ment, which we shall examine at our
leisure.
AMUSEMENTS.
The Two Great Emmas Will Sing Next
Week.
The sale of seats for the Abbott season
at the Los Angeles yesterday was a
boomer. Those who want good seats
for any performance would better get
t hem at once. Remember Abbott sings
at every performance. Most of the operas
are new in this city.
At the Grand opera house. Messrs.
McLain & Lehman announce as their
Christmas attraction the peerless
Emma Juch Grand English Opera com
pany, headed by the brilliant American
prima-donna, Miss Emma Juch. The
brilliant achievements of this famous
singer in the real-: of English opera iB a
matter of the most recent musical his
tory. The large company of artists,
carefully selected from both" America and
Europe, with the object of securing to
the public the foremost English-singing
exponents of the roles to be interpreted,
is confidently presented as being very
nearly perfect. The chorus is large and
is composed of ambitious young men and
women. The fresh quality of iis voices
and the fact that it is mostly American,
have been approvingly commended. Tho
organization is also accompanied by the
Emma Juch Opera orchestra, which ii
composed of well-known soloists, se
lected from the leading New York or
chestras.
; The opera selected for the initial per
formance, Christmas nichr, will be the
Huguenots, in which, besides Miss Jnch
jas s alentine, Chas. Hedmondt will be
; heard in the leading role, and Carlotta
Maconda, as the Queen. On Friday eve
ning there will be a grand spectacular
' production ot Faust, with Frani-. Vetta
in his justly famous impersonation of
I Mephistophles; and on Saturday eve
- ning the greatest of all Wagnerian
: operas, Lohengrin, will have its initial
! production in this city, with Jnch as
j F.lsa, Hedmondt as Lohengrin and
i Franz Vetta as Henry 1. King of Ger
: many. The mounting and costuming of
.these great music-dramas Will eclipse
: anything heretofore seen in this city, it
j requiring five special cars to handle the
: scenery, costumes, properties, electrical
; and other novel effects used in these
; productions.
' The sale of seats and boxes will begin
i Wednesday, December 17, at 10 a. m.
THK (IRISMEP.-OAVIEK COMPASY,
j The Grismer-Davies company will
appear at the Grand opera house next
'■ Saturday, matinee and night; also
'no Monday night, December 22d.
: The reputations of that sterling actor,
Joseph Gristlier, and that excellent
; actress, Phoebe Davies, are so well known
i in 1,03 Angeles that to say aught in their
; praise is entirely unnecessary. The play
! selected for their engagement is Mr. De
i Witt Young's romantic militaiy drama,
| Beacon Lights, of which the Sacramento
I Bee says:
j Last season there was brought out a
• new play at the Grand, entitled Beacon
! Lights. The play is remembered as
i treating of a theme similar to the Golden
; <;iant. A young woman,whose husband
! has died in the gold fields, endures trib
; illations in seeking to establish her
I claim. She is protected, and villainy
• thwarted, by the chivalrous conduct of
I a young army officer and his friend, an
j honest miner. Beacon Lights always
| "»s and always will be a great play ; the
piece, however, has been greatly im-
I proved since its last visit to this city, as
! the comedy has been developed and the
t action heightened by putting it into live
j instead of four acts,"and so avoiding the
; shifting of scenes in one of the best acts
:of the play. Each scene now stands an
: act, and each has a strong dramatic cli
! max. Beacon Lights should never be
j come "played out."
The sale of seats will open at Grand
. opera house box office tomorrow morninir
j at .0 o'clock.

WHAT LIES AROUND US.
j A Glance at the Immediate Neighbor
hood of Los Angeles—The Model Or
ange Grove of Judge Ross—The Result
of Intelligence and Outlay.
The other day a representative of the
Hkrald took a swing around the imme
diate neighborhood oi Los Angeles, be
i hind the high-stepping bright bays of A.
;H. Denker, Esq. The company was rein
i forced by the presence of Mr. Leach, a
I Florida orange grower of long experi
! ence, who has had charge of the Ingle
; wood grove belonging to Mr. Dan Free
, man, in which he is said to have worked
i wonders.
The principal object of the party was
to inspect the celebrated orange grove
of Judge Ross, which lies at the base
and on the sides of a charming emi
nence above Glendale, around which
sweeps a goodly stream, whose waters
are gathered in one of the ample water
shed! of the Verdugo mountains. Glen
dale and Tropico were found to be in a
i capital state of development. Abun
! dant water, a splendid mountain back-
I ground, an invigorating air and pleas
i ant surroundings on all hands, make
i life in tliesc places far from disagreeable.
A TYPICAL ORANGE GROVE.
Swinging past the terminus of the
Glendale motor railway, the place of
Judge Erskine M. Ross was quickly
reached. Outside of the scenic and
other attractions of this distinguished
gentleman's country residence, the party
were anxious to inspect his groves, and
for a number of reasons. The first was
that it has been asserted repeatedly that ,
while many of the orange orchards of
the San Gabriel Valley, like those of
Rose, had been dying out, tliat ot Judge
Ross nad been steadily advancing to a
most remunerative stage of production.
The second and most interesting reason
was because the perfection of the
Judge's grove was ascribed to the fact
that, for several years past, he has had
the sagacity to use fertilizers, his prac
tice in this respect being identical with
that of the more experienced orange
growers of Kiverside. An additional in
terest was added to the grove because it
was said that its owner had recently
refused $40,000 for the crop now on the
trees. It is due to Judge Ross to say
that that gentleman has given no coun
tenance to this story, nor has the writer
in any shape or manner sought to peer
into the Judge's private business
transactions, though he has no doubt
whatever but that if Judge Ross had
been present on the occasion of this
visit he would gladly have exchanged
opinions and experiences with a Florida
orange grower.
A WEALTH OF ORANGES —RESULTS OF IN-
I'ELUCENT CULTIVATION.
The grove extends along a bottom
which is flanked by the stream referred
to, and the trees climb up the hill on
the other side. From all appearances,
they are sixteen and seventeen years
old, and mainly seedlings. All told,
there are said to be forty acres in the
tract. Trees are allowed to grow down
towards the ground, which is said to be
the most intelligent and profitable
method of cultivation. They show in
dications oi having been freely manured,
and their health and glossy brightness
are not less conspicuous than t he almost
Incredible amount of fruit they bear,
and this, by the way, is of goodly size
and line fiber, extorting the commenda
tion of Mr. Leach. The weight of the
fruit is so great that in many instances
the branches have to be propped up.
The writer recently very carefully in
spected the orange groves oi Kiverside
on two several occasions,and he saw there
no groves that looked better than the
Hoss orchard. Mr. Leach pronounced
the fruit to he of a very super
ior order, and he did some
work of measuring the yield which
guaranteed exceptional results, and
which seemed to sustain the assertion
that $40,000 had been offered to Judge
Ross lor the product of the grove. Some
of the trees were estimated by Mr.
MBach to reach sixteen boxes "or up
wards, while others might go as low as
twelve. Fourteen boxes was therefore
a fair mean. In Florida, Mr. L. said, a
dealer would readily nay $1400 an acre
for the fruit of an orchard which looked
so promising. Putting the price very
low, we yet reach an astonishing result,
as follows: With seventy trees to the
acre, and the Ross grove seems
to be that closely planted, and
at fourteen boxes to the tree,
we have 080 boxes to the acre. Mr.
I.eacii says that fruit of the standard of
that which we are making the subject
of this calculation, would readily sell in
the east for $3.50 a box. Discounting
freight, boxing, etc., that wonld leave
at least $2 a box for the fruit on the
trees, with a fair profit to the middle
man. But we will dismiss extreme fig
ures, and put these large, luscious and
sightly oranges at $1.35 a box on the
ground, and we then have the some
what, pleasant result to the grower of
11343 an acre. In other words, if Judge
ltoss's orchard consists of forty acres, it
is not unreasonable to assume that he
will get some fifty-two or fifty-three
thousand dollars for his fruit.
In the whole of this exquisite expanse
of orange trees thero is not so much as a
suggestion of the scale bug or any other
parasite. Health and beauty go together
in plants as in animals. Glossy, bright
and inspiriting foliage surrounds the
juicy spheres which are destined to give
.so much pleasure to people in far-away
regions.
Standing on the noble eminence on
which Judge Ross's country house is
located, the eye takes in a superb ex
panse of valley, including the lower end
of the San Fernando valley, which is
itself being rapidly planted out in trees
oi the citrus and other varieties. Glen
dale and Tropico loom up in the near
foreground iv a most attractive form.
Take it for all in all, it would be hard to
imagine a more fascinating landscape.
Mr. Leach has no hesitation in saying
that the region around Glendale and
Tropico is highly adapted to the cultiva
tion of the orange in a most remunera
tive shape. Judge Ross has led the way
by the employment of manures. For
some years every paisano who has gone
into Los Angeles has returned with his
wagon loaded with fertilizers for the Ross
place. On reaching the Southern Pa
cific railroad track at Tropico, carloads
of sheep manure and compost were found
side-tracked, their contents ready to be
hauled to this model orange grove, which
will this year yield its owner a princely
revenue. Judge Ross waxes rich be
cause he has realized that it requires
labor and attention to produce the or
ange of commerce—a large, sightly and
luscious orange—and that to make a tree
vigorous you must nourish it.
WHAT THEY 1)0 IN FLORIDA.
The examination of a California
orange grove- quite naturally afforded
Mr ! each an opportunity of indulging
in some reflections upon citrus culture
in Los Angeles and in Florida. He has
been practically engaged for a long time
in orange-growing in the flower state,
but our object is not to give a biograph
ical sketch of the gentleman but to re-
I fleet his opinions. In the first place,
1 outside of a few favored spots, when you
! create an orange grove in Florida, you
are obliged to create the ground itself,
i VHummocks"—places where the soil is
| good—are few and far between. This is
done, after the pine stumps are up
, rooted, by the prodigal use of expensive
1 manures—those containing ammonia
; and nitrates. The tree requires the
I most painstaking attention. Theslight
j est neglect at any stage means the fail
-1 ure of your crop. Not only docs the
[ Floridian believe in manuring his
1 orchard, but it never enters into his
mind not to employ fertilizers. These
are far more expensive in Florida than
in California, the difference as to many
lof them being more than 50 per cent,
in our favor.
I The region of country adapted to or
■ ange culture in Florida is extremely
i limited. Singularly enough, the best
I oranges in that state are . raised on the
j sea-coast. Mr. Leach is of the opinion
j that, under a proper system, that would
I prove to be the case here. In a compar
ison of the two countries, what struck
our informant as our principal advantage
is the extreme richness of the soil,which
renders fertilizers unnecessary until the
j tree reaches the bearing stage, and
| which admits of the orchardist making
I a living, while ins trees are maturing,
by planting vegetables between the
rows. In Florida they raise scarcely
anything, hay, grain, vegetables, every
thing except a few sweet potatoes, being
imported f rom tiie east. The same ships
which carry oranges to New York bring
back the eggs, butter, ham, bacon and
i other articles of domestic consumption.
It is a great pity that Judge Ross's
: ranch does not lie where people can see
lit readily. It contains in itself all the
; elements of a most instructive treatise
on the capabilities of the soil of Los An
geles county.
Some of the things observed in the
Cahuenga region will be treated of in a
subsequent article.
