A Teachers' Committee Decides that Mr.
Ennis' Name was Forged.
During the late political campaign, a
■ letter was received by the Hbbald bear
■ ing the name of Charles L. Ennis, and
-severely reflecting on the administration
-of the city schools, and particularly on
Mr. Baker, the assistant superintendent.
' There was nothing out of the way in the
I letter, the criticisms, it is probable, be
• ing fully deserved by those against
.whom it was directed.
Mr. Ennis called at the Herald office
;~aoon after its publication and denied
having written it. The fact that he
■ denied its authorship was then pub
lished, and lie was offered the use of the
■columns of the paper to present to the
public any absolute proof he might pro
duce that he did not write the letter,
last evening the following communica
tion was left at the Herald office:
Los Anoelks, Dec. 16, 1890.
We, the teachers' committee, having
had under consideration the matter of a
' letter which appeared in the Los An
geles Herald on October 29,1890, signed
"Taxpayer and Principal," and which
1 purported to have been written by one
■»«rf the four male principals of the city
public schools, and which subsequently
proved to have had Mr. Chas. L. Ennis'
nam.■ attached thereto, do report that
after a thorough investigation of the
whole affair, we find that the letter was
a forgery, and that Mr. Ennis had noth
ing to do with it whatever, and that he
had no knowledge of the contents of the
letter until after itsjpublication in the
We therefore recommend that Mr.
Ennis be, and is hereby entirely exoner
ated, and in order that he may be set
right before the public, that the Herald
be respectfully requested to publish
this report. C. J. Ellis,
R. N. Morris,
J. J. Gosper,
Teachers' Committee.

a display at the world's fair. The ladies

He Says He Never Lived with Minnie

was stated in yesterday's Hkrald, that
in his answer he admitted having lived
with the girl, and states that lie is per
fectly able to disurove all the allegations
made in her complaint.
A Noteworthy Exception.
| From the Kimball, S. P., Graphic]
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
tions occasionally, and a noteworthy
exception is the celebrated Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. This now uni
versally known medicine has been adver
tised in the Graphic for four or five
years, but not until recently had we
any personal knowledge of its wonderful
efficacy, which has come about through
the prevailing influenza and the stub
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 bafHed 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 cf every nature.

Location of Lands, With Description of
Soil and Climate, and Comparison of
Prices With Other Lands of Similar
The original purchase of these landi
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
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 producingcountry in the
state of California. Our subsoil is the
same that has made Riverside famous
the world over, with this advantage—we
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 iti 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
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
Lytic creek, the fourth largest stream in
Southern California, besides which we
have a large scope of artesian water
bearing land where we have thirty fine
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 tine flow
of water, so that we have no hesitancy
in say ing that we have a great abundance
of water for all of our rich lands.
Of the 29,000 acres originally pur
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,
comparatively speaking, has been sold in
Southern California, on account of the
depression in the money market, and the
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 the 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 $60 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
$00 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 live 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 mileß 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
Californiais 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 hour 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
