There is a slight misunderstanding be
tween the members ot the Valley Hunt
and the Athletic association. The asso
ciation seems to think that the hunt
members purposely refrained from pat
ronizing the Thanksgiving day sports,
some saying that the Valley Hunt rep

one hand. Again, the members are ex
rcised over the probable destruction of

No More Political Machines—How to
Reduce Expenses.
.."Sow that the city election is over and
a iair representative council is elected,
it behooves each of them to look around
and see the errors and mistakes of their
predecessors and correct them at the
commencement of their term. The
people who elected each one of them
expect they will profit by the past
council's experience. Retrenchment
-and reform of abuses are the watch
words of the people. Nothing else will
satisfy them. To bring this about is a
plain business proposition.
T!:'j most serious arid fatal mistake
made by the present council (now about
i to retire) was its abuse of tbe new char
ter by making it a political machine
from the very beginning. In order to
fulfill election promises they multiplied
offices at a fearful rate. The freeholders
who framed the new charter supposed
that, by paying good, liberal salaries to
the different heads of departments, the
people would elect good men, and that
said heads, instead of being ornaments
(as is the case of some of them at the
present time), would do some of the
work themselves. In other words, it
was not contemplated by the freehold
ers that the council would allow chief
deputies, assistants, inspectors, and an
innumerable lot of cormorants and
bloodsuckers to suck the vitality out of
.the city, until the payroll for all sala
ries (excepting, of course, the expenses
attending smallpox for two years) has
nearly doubled since the administration
of ex-Mayor Workman, during boom
.times of two years ago.
Here is the • fatal mistake. Let the
new council cut off all unnecessary depu
ties and assistants. Begin right, let
politics alone and work in the interest of
the tax-payers and people. The ppopla
do not care for politics in our local af
fairs, but want good, economical gov
Cut off the heads of at least one-half
of the present deputies, assistants and
inspectors, and put the money thus
saved into permanent public improve
ments, something the people can see
'good roads for instance), and you will
uot retire from office, two years hence,
in ignoming and with curses, as some ol
our present councilinen are doing,but will
receive the plaudits of a gratified people.
(io slow in giving deputies and assist
ants outof thejpublic treasure. Do not be
bamboozled into giving this and that of
ficer all the deputies lie may ask for,
when they are idle more than half of
their time, smoking cigarettes, drawing
big salaries and wasting the substance
of the people.

Two Members of the House and Senate
Committee Take Testimony Regarding
the Exclusion Act and the Chinese.
The joint committee of the United
States senate and house of representa
tives on immigration held a meeting
yesterday at United States Marshal
Gard's office, and listened to evidence
on the matter of Chinese immigration.
As a matter of fact the senate is not
represented in the committee, the dis
tinguished members from that body not
thinking it worth their while to come to
this city. The party is made up of Con
gressman Lehlbach of New Jersey, Con
gressman Stump of Delphi, Ind., clerk
of the committee; C. M. Landes, sten
ographer, and B. N. Stump, nephew of
Congressman Stump. The party is in
charge of Charles B. Reade, sergeant-at
arms of the senate, who is accompanied
by Mrs. Reade. Chinese Interpreter
Rickords of San Francisco came with
the committee from San Francisco.
Deputy United States Marshals Marsh
and Goodrich were examined as to the
workings of, the exclusion act. Their
testimony was in substance that from
the first of last April, 72 Chinamen bad
been captured and remanded to San
Francisco. The line from the ocean to
Yuma is 150 miles and is patroled by
only these two officers. They thought
there were 200 Chinamen at Ensenada
at that date (April 1) and there are
j about 30 there now. which, with the 72
captured, leave about 100 who are sup
■ posed to have crossed the line,
i'he witnesses both thought that
: if there was a nrnvisinn in tlm bill onm*.
j it mere was a provision in tiie oui com
i pelling every Chinaman to take out a
' certificate of identification it would
] mend matters very much.
According to the present law it is nee
' essary to detect the Oriental in the very
i act of crossing the line before he can be
I captured. If the patrolman meets a
Chinaman on the street, and knows pos
itively that he is a new-comer, he can
; not touch him, because he has no cvi
i dence; that is. he did not see him cross
! the line. If the provision above men
j tioned were made, then every Chinaman
! would have to show his certificate when
; called upon to do so. Mr. Marsh testified
| that according to the last census there
j were about 5000 Chinamen in this county,
I about 1000 of winch were employed out
! side the city on railroads, etc. It would
i be an excellent provision, in his opinion,
\ in a new law to east the burden of proof
ion the Chinaman, and not on the gov
ernment, as is the case now.
In the afternoon Colonel 11. G. Otis,
j editor of the Times, and Major George
!H. Bonebrake, president of the Los An
| geles National bank, testified as to the
j effect on labor, and the character and
: tendencies of Chinese.
Ah Moy, the manager of the Chinese
I theater, was interrogated as to the Mon
golian religion, habits, morals and busi
j ness methods, and Wong Ark gave his
1 evidence as from a Christianized China
. man's standpoint.
i The committee at first decided not to
jgo to San Diego,as the members are in a
I hurry to return to Washington, but
i finally decided to go to that place this
i morning.

The Matter Will Go to the Jury, Prob-
ably, Today.
The |60,000 damage suit brought by
Miss Jessie Marshall against Jacob Tav
lor, the proprietor of the Del Mar hotel,
is rapidly drawing to a close. The case
will go to the jury sometime this after
noon It has been a stubbornly fought
suit, and considerable salaciousness has
been developed during the trial. The
complaining witness has attended court
daily. She was invariably accompanied
by her mother. The Illegitimate child,
wdio was present several times, came in
for the usual amount of sympathy from
the court habitues.
Some little testimony was taken yes
terday, but it was principally in rebut
tal and was of an unimportant char
The stepfather of Miss Marshall testi
fied to the previous good conduct of the
plaintiff. He also testified that he did
not know anybody by the name of Harry
Bostwick. It will be remembered that
Dennis O'Brien testified that Miss Mar
shall had confessed to him that it was
Harry Bostwick who was the cause of
her being in a delicate condition.
W. W. Holcomb and Judge (Jochran
both addressed the jury yesterday after
noon, on behalf of the plaintiff. Con
siderable stress was laid on tbe charac
ter of the witnesses for Taylor. Dennis
O'Brien and Reiter were scorched for
the infamous part they took in the mat
ter. The attorneys for Taylor will hold
forth this morning.

I From the Kimball, S. 1)., Oraphic]
While the columns of the Graphic are
open to any and all unobjectionable ad
vertisements, yet it is quite impossible
for us to speak knowingly of the merits
of the various articles of merchandise
advertised. Particularly is this true of
patent medicines. But there are excep
i tions occasionally, and a noteworthy
j exception is the celebrated Chamber
! lain's Cough Remedy. This now uni
versally known medicine has beenadver-
I tised in the Graphic for four or five
j years, but not until recently had we
! any personal knowledge of its wonderful
I efficacy, which has come about through
j the prevailing influenza and the stub-
I born cough that has so often attended
it. In the writer's family this medicine
has on several occasions this winter
cured a cough that baliled any and all
other remedies; and the number of fam
ilies in Kimball and vicinity in which
this remedy has been used with like
effects, attests to its value as a specific
for coughs and colds of every nature.

Looation of Lands, With Description of
Soil and Climate, and Comparison oi
Prices With Other Lands of Similar
The original purchase of these lands
comprised 29,000 acres, situate immedi
ately west of the cities of San Bernardino
and Colton.
Two transcontinental lines of railroad,
the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, trav
erse east and west these lands, exactly
two miles apart, giving us two townsites
and stations upon each road, the stations
being four miles from each other, thereby
giving us unexcelled shipping facilities.
Our land extends to within three miles
of San Bernardino, one and one-half of
Colton on the east and five miles of '
Riverside on the south.
Our average altitude is about 1200 j
feet above sea level, with a gradual and !
regular slope from the mountains on the ;
north, with just fall enough to irrigate
We are 400 feet higher than Riverside
and 200 higher than San Bernardino,
which exempts us almost entirely from
Our lands are peculiarly adapted to
citrus fruits, being right in the heart of
the best orange producing country in the
state of California. Our subsoil is the
same that has made Riverside famous
the world over, with this advantage—we I
are fortunate in having a top dressing of
decomposed granite ranging to a depth
of from six to eighteen inches, which
holds the moisture, always being in good
condition for cultivation and readily
furnishing the proper nourishment for •
starting the growth of freshly planted
trees and vines.
Irrigation may be indulged in to any j
degiee without fear of injury to the trees,
vines or vegetables, or the risk of getting
the ground in bad condition, as frequent
ly occurs on land less favored.
Our water rights are unsurpassed. We
own and control almost all the water in
Lytle creek, the fourth largest stream in
Southern California, besides which we
have a large scope of artesian water
bearing land where we have thirty tine
flowing wells emptying their sparkling
waters into pipes which conduct it to the
rich lands below for irrigation, and to
our streets for protection against fire,
and to our dwellings for domestic uses. ,
We are boring more artesian wells con
stantly, never failing to secure a fine flow
of water, so that we have no hesitancy I
in saying that we have a great abundance ,
I of water for all of our rich lands.
Of the 29,000 acres originally pur-
I chased we have sold about 9000 acres at
[ $200 per acre, which leaves us about
20,000 acres yet to be disposed of.
For the past two years but little land, I
comparatively speaking, has been sold in •
Southern California, on account of the
depression in the money market, and tbe j
collapse of our boom, but now we think
we see the dawn of an era of prosperity,
such as has never been known in this
country, and in order to attract tho at
tention of the world to our superior loca
tion and lands, we have reduced the
price to a figure below the price of the
cheapest agricultural lands in this
country, and propose to sell about 2000
acres to actual settlers and people who
will improve the land, at $75 to $100 per
acre, with 20.and 25 per cent off for im
provements made within one year from
purchase, making the land but $00 to
$75 per acre to the man who in good faith
improves the land, and on terms within
the reach of all, to-wit: $10 per acre
cash on delivery of contract, balance in
three equal payments, due in two, three
and four years, at 8 per cent, interest.
Think of it! The best orange lands at
$60 and $75 an acre. Go all around us
and ask the price of land not so good as
ours. At Riverside on the south, at
Redlands and Highlands on the east and
northeast of us, all famous orange pro
ducing districts, the price of unimproved
lands ranges from $250 to $500 per acre,
and foi orchards five years old from $1000
to $2000 per acre are being paid, and
they are well worth the money invested.
The water for irrigating these lands is
furnished under the "Wright Irrigation
Law" of this state, and costs the land
owner only $2 to $4 per acre per annum.
Rialto, where is located the home
office of the company, is a smart, little
town of, perhaps, 200 people, situated
on the main line of the great Santa Fe
railroad, four miles west of San Ber
nardino, and we have a fine depot with
telegraph and telephone communica
tions with the world. A fine large hotel,
the "Semi-Tropic," elegantly furnished
and well kept, occupies a square in the
center of Rialto, and one of the fine
school buildings for which Southern
California is famous, stands upon another
square of the town. Two church organ
izations are in a flourishing condition—
the Methodist and Congregational.
A pleasant ride of an bout and a half
through the beautiful orange groves of
Los Angeles and San Bernardino coun
ties takes you from the city of Los An
geles, the metropolis of Southern Cali
fornia, to Rialto.
An excursion is conducted from Los
Angeles to Rialto every Friday morning,
leaving Los Angeles at 8:30, and return
ing arrives here at 6:30 p. m.; tickets
good for ten days. Fare for round trip
