THE LITTLE BUSY BEE.
"HIS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA KEEP
A Constitution Adopted—The Association
to Meet on the Eighth—An Interesting
The Southern California Beekeepers'
association has published its constitu
tion and bylaws, and in distributing
copies has sent out the following circu
lar letter, which is worthy of attention
of those interested :
Los Angeles, Dec. 22,1890.
Dear Sir : Herewith please rind copy
of the constitution and bylaws of the
Southern C alifornia Beekeepers' associ
This association has been formed for
the mutual protection of the beekeep
ers, and you will, I am sure, agree with
us that it is an imperative necessity that
we should organize to protect our inter
When you take into consideration tho
fact that'the honey crop of tbe district
covered by this association is valued at
nearly $1,000,000, you will at once see
the vast interests "the beekeepers have
At the present time you are not able
to control the price of honey or fix the
grade; in fact you are completely at the
mercy of the honey buyer, and it is a
well-known fact that the profits of the
middlemen are very large. It is the in
tention of the association to correspond
with the large wholesale houses in the
east, and inform them that they can buy
direct from members of the association.
When it is known that we can supply
any quantity of honey required at a
fixed grade, the wholesale dealers will
seek us, and not us them.
The question of cheap apiarian supplies
enters largely into thequestion of profits,
and in that line alone we propose to ef
fect a very large saving to members of
the association, by buying in carload
lota, and selling to members at actual
cost, with freight added. We are at
present in communication with the
largest wholesale dealers in supplies,
with this object in view.
You are doubtless aw are that the law
regarding foul brood among bees needs
amending; as the matter at present
stands, it rests entirely with the super
visors to appoint a bee inspector, and in
many instances the choice is not a good
one; again, the district to be covered by
any one inspector is altogether too large,
and the inspection, therefore, cannot be
thorough. At our next meeting a bill
will be presented to the members, and
they will be asked to give their consid
eration to the same, that it may be pre
sented to the legislature, which meets
in January next.
It is the intention of this association
to foster the formation of local associa
tions, to be composed oi not less than
seven members, who can elect their own
officers, and whose secretary can corre
spond with the parent association on any
point that may suggest itself. The pa
rent association in Los Angeles will keep
the various local associations posted re
garding market price of honey, demand
for same and the prospective yield. The
local associations can order supplies,
give quantity of honey for sale and, if
they see fit, can obtain from the parent
association names of wholesale dealers
who wish to deal with the association,
and can deal with them direct. It will
also be the duty of the parent association
to advise the members of any firm oi
firms who do not deal in a fair manner
with the association.
The next meeting of the association
takes place at the rooms of the chamber
of commerce, Los Angeles, on January
Bth next, a 1 p. m. and I most earnestly
request your attendance, together with
any of your friends or neighbors, and
shall feel obliged if you will notify me at
your earliest convenience how many
from your locality we may expect.
It will be impossible to meet with suc
cess unless we are all agreed on a common
programme. Theiefore I would request
that you see every bee-keeper in your
locality and get them to attend the
meeting and enroll themselves iv our
Finally, 1 ask you whether you ai'f
not aware that almost every industry in
Southern California is represented by an
association except ours, and whether it
ia not high time that we protect our
Awaiting your reply, yours respect

A BIG PERCENTAGE
Shown in the Increased Exports From
The most recent statistics made pub
lic by the Southern Pacific company
show that a most pleasing; increase in
eastern shipments of California products
has grown up during the past year.

Manager Richard Gray, of the Southern
Pacilic company, it is stated that during
the first eleven months of this year

shipped east as against 2,(>8;>,000 pounds
for the same period last year, an in
crease of 109 per cent.
For the same period potato shipments
show an increase of 404 per cent over
last year, or in other words, 20,010,00U
pounds were shipped east in the past
eleven months, as against 4,147,000
pounds last year.
The raisin shipments of the company
chow an increase in the past eleven
months of 50 per cent, green fruits 54

DEATH OF MRS. BOWLER.
The Wife of a Well-Known Officer Dies
Yesterday afternoon the wife of Delec
tive M. T. Bowler, of the police force,
died of consumption, at their residence
252 West Fifteenth street. Mrs. Bowler
had been unable to leave her room for
some time past; but was not considered
to be in any immediate danger, and in
fact she appeared to be slightly improved
when her husband left home yesterday
to attend to his duties. About 3 o'clock
p. m., however, her condition changed
for the worse again, ami before her hus
band could be notified, she expired. The
funeral will take place today at 2o'clock

The Uncrowned Kings Trying to Evade
There are a lot of "uncrowned kings"
in Los Angeles who some time ago
agreed with the history maker, H. H.
Bancroft, of San Francisco, that if he
would place a diadem on their heads, by
putting a biography and steel engraving
of them in a book to be entitled "The
Chronicles of the Builders of the Com
monwealth," they would liberally rec
ompense him. Mr. Bancroft or his
company does not make histories for
fun, or glory, so each ambitious knight
had tirst to sign an agreement to pay
different sums, ranging from $500 to
$2000. for that honor. The agreement
once signed, Mr. Bancroft started up his
history factory and began the construc
tion of the agreed-upon amount of fame.
Everything went well, the history
mill worked smoothly, and a number of
rich men all over the state went into
training so as to be ready to bear the
weight of the fame they were to get in
exchange for their dollars. There were
fifteen or twenty right here in Los An
geles who pungled up the specitied
amount. But a reporter happened
to hear of this fame business, and in the
cold, heartless, coarse way peculiar to
reporters when they meet witli any
thing which savors of a fake, he wrote
the whole business up, and for two days
uncrowned and their would-be subsi
dized gloritier. The result was that
fame was at a discount, and those who
were previously so anxious for her favor
now wanted to renounce her, and re
main uncrowned. Mr. Bancroft, as
fame's agent, however, does not pro
pose to have it that way. He has a lot
of signed agreements, he is ready to de
liver his goods, and it is stated in a
i San Francisco paper that he is intend
ing to seek legal redress.

He had visited his mother in Athens
Christmas week, and he said: "I don't
think I ever felt happier than when I
reached the little home of my boyhood. I
got there at night. She had saved supper
for me, aud she had remembered all the
things I liked. She toasted me some cheese
overthe fire. Why, I hadn't tasted anything
like it since I put off my round jackets.
And then she hud some home made cundy
she knew I used to love; and, bless her heart!
I just felt sixteen again as we sat and
talked, and she told me how she prayed
for me and thought of me always, and
what a brightness I had been to her life,
and how she heard me coming home in
every boy that whistled along the street.
When I went to bed she came and tucked
the covers all around mo in the dear old
way that none but a mother's hands know,
and I felt so happy, and so peaceful, and so
full of tender love and tender memories that
I cried happy, grateful tears until I went to

tears and so were mine. He brushed his

laughingly: "Why, what, are you crying

NOT TO BE BRIBED.
A DISGRACEFUL ATTEMPT TO IN
FLUENCE HERALD REPORTERS.
A Trial Which the Defendant Wanted
Written Up from His Point of View.
What the Plaintiff's Attorneys Claim.
A disgraceful attempt was made to
bribe two reporters on this paper during
the progress of a recent sensational suit
for damages. A weh-known private de
tective, who is in the employ of the de
fendant, approached one of the reporters
of the Herald, and insinuated that if
he would go to the attorney for the de
fendant he "could make a twenty."
The reporter knew no honest way he
could make such an amount out of the
attorney, so he asked the detective for
particulars, when it was disclosed in an
insidious, glossed over way, that it would
be compensation for writing the account
of the trial from the defendant's point
of view. The reporter spurned the offer,
and wrote impartial, straightforward re
ports of the trial.
To another reporter on this paper the
same offer was made, but in this case
the possible reward was raised to fifty
dollars. When this reporter, with con
siderable warmth, declined the proposi
tion, he was begged not to mention any
names, and at last was persuaded to
make such a promise; were it not for his
word, the names of all the parties con
cerned would here be given.
The attorneys for the plaintiff claim
to have ample evidence showing
that some reporters were venal enough
to he tempted, but it is to be hoped that
this is a mistake.
