'THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1891. HAPPY NEW YEAR—AND WHY? The new year opens on Los Angeles with every promise of a twelvemonth oi unprecedented prosperity. We have no reference to any hectic booms—to any pyrotechnic movements in the real es tate market. All the conditions exist here in a remarkable degree for growth and progress in all lines. We have all the resources of most growing cities, and many that no other city has. Los Angeles and Southern California are un der no necessity of begging the question. No phase of prosperity and development is closed to her, and that fact can be demonstrated. Geographically, she has a whole conti nent behind her. From San Pedro or Santa Monica to Galveston is the short est line from tide water to tidewater on the American continent within the lim its of the United States. It is scarcely more than half the distance between San Francisco and New York, Via the Central and Southern Pacific rail ways. The vast back country of Los Angeles is certain to fill up i with an enterprising and go-ahead population during the next de cade. This region is particularly rich in minerals, and in variety of the base and precious metals no equal extent of terri tory on the globe surpasses it. This . will naturally, in the not distant future, j make Los Angeles a great smelting and | manufacturing center. The only thing j that has prevented our already becom • ingone is the fact that fuel has hitherto j been quite high. As we are practically on the seaboard, this difficulty will not exist long. The cheap coals of Alaska will soon be laid down here at reason able cost. In addition, the extension of the Pioche branch of the Union Pacific f will soon reach Los Angeles, giving us ; another transcontinental railroad and assuring us the cheap and excellent coal of southwestern Utah. In order to make j assurance doubly sure, the extensive de posits of petroleum in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties guarantee.when they shall be exploited, an abundance of natural gas, which has no superior as a fuel. Experts from Pittsburg and other centers of natural gas have had no hesitation in saying that this is as good a country for gas as any on the continent. Any one who chooses to drive out Temple street to the Cahaenga will find frequent evi dences of the presence of this valuable fuel. Not only is the geographical position of Los Angeles such as to insure her greatness, but her railway advantages are incomparably ahead of any other point on the Pacific coast. We enjoy the facilities of the Central Pacific rail way as fully as San Francisco, and we can ship by that route, via Lathrop and Sacramento, utterly without regard to the Bay City. That makes one trans continental route that is as fully ours as hers. Then we have the Sunset route to New Orleans, with a line of steamers connecting with New York. That is distinctively our own transcontinental line. Then we have the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, which means also the facilities of the Atlantic and Pacific and St. Louis and 'San Francisco railways, as the Sunset route involves all the advantages of a connection with the Texas Pacific rail way. To crown a transcontinental rail way situation absolutely without a rival, we have an interior road connecting us with San Francisco, a coast road which will soon be built to the Bay City, and local railways that fairly gridiron the country in every direction. Let anyone study up the map of the local railways of the county of Los Angeles, and he will be fairly amazed at the complexity and extent of out locai railway system, to which the Southern California road has lately added its splendid Belt line. Not only have we a perfect trans continental and local railway system, but we have an admirable cable one as well. In this respect Los Angeles is not surpassed by over half a dozen cities in the United Statqp. We owe this great improvement to Chi cago capital. The capacity of our power houses is only third or fourth in the United States. On the top of this we have the Belt Electric roads, which are just about to be laid down on the most improved methods in vogne. When this system shall be completed, no city in the world will surpass Los Angeles for local transit, and few will even approach Iter. A fine stretch of seacoast, with the harbor of San Pedro, and a number of good roadsteads that can readily be con verted into serviceable harbors, make the advantages of Los Angeles with re spect to commerce of the superlative or der. Under such circumstances, why should not the denizens of the richest valley in THE LOS ANGELES HERALD ' THXTBSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1, 1891. the world take a sanguine view of the future? As the Angelefio eats his green peas, string beans, grriten corn, spring lamb, spring veal, broilers, and a hundred and one other midwinter delicacies incident to a sub-tropical climate, why should he not felicitate himself and contemplate the goose hanging at a high altitude? Goethe said that we ought to take care of the beautiful because the useful will take care of itself. In this roseate land, na ture herself has taken the beautiful in charge; and, during the past three or four years, we have been taking care of the useful with a vengeance. Produc tion nourishes now on all hands, and in all staples, ranging from the cereal to the citrus. A land already cleared to the hand of the farmer, with a soil from five to a hundred feet deep, with a cli mate that infinitely surpasses that of Nice or Mentone, with every charming range of flora and vegetation, invites the people of the United States and of the world to Los Angeles. And they are coming! They are coming by tens and hundreds of thousands. The Herald wishes all its readers a happy New Year, and it knows that happiest developments are ahead for themselves and for the section. Thh» good people of San Francisco ought to begin to "whoop" themselves ! up, or they will be left away behind. They did not make the showing in the census that they "had oughter" to have made. The rate of increase for the past ten years has only been, annually, some thing a trifle over six per cent. This is hardly the natural rate of increase. Still, we take stock in San Francisco. We even go to the extent of believing that it is destined to be one of the three greatest cities of the world. Of late it has had to witness the growth of Port land, Tacoma, Seattle, Vancouver, Vic toria and Los Angeles, apparently all at the expense of the old time toll-taker by the sea. Notwithstanding all these drawbacks, San Francisco has prospered. In a dogged way she has goue on refus ing to believe that her star is going down, and improvements of a splendid character have been piled up on a hundred avenues, including the steady beautifying of her incomparable park. She will come out in good shape; and, when she does the butteifly business, her chrysalis will be a thing to see. While the prism of her commerce is be ing restricted just now, a proper enter prise upon the part of her people will enlarge it to world-wide proportions. Her immediate tributary territory is be ing developed with a rapidity and suc cess not known in the past. The whole of California is just now experiencing a revival of the happiest omen. It em braces all lines of activity—mining, manufacturing, agriculture and horti culture. The fact is beginning to be realized, that in the golden state lies the potentiality of supplying a whole world with fruits of all kinds, and canned, dried and citrus fruits in especial. When to this as added the production and manufacture of all the ; base and precious metals, the horoscope jof California is seen to be bright in deed. | The Herald learns with unfeigned I regret of the death of Judge Arick, of Kern county. The deceased had just I been re-elected judge of the superior court of that county. He was a noble man, a sound jurist, a staunch friend and an honor to his cloth and kind. There will be much heartfelt sorrow in California at the untimely taking off of a distinguished jurist and sterling citi zen. THE DOCTOR'S CASE BETTER. The Evidence Introduced Yesterday in the Latta Trial. The trial of Miss Leila Latta was al most concluded yesterday. The defense developed considerable strength. The defendant testified in her own behalf. She stated that when she was called in Mrs. Swanton was in a very bad condi tion and had already been operated up on, and that she had employed the rem j edies usually used in such cases by com ! petent physicians. Mrs. Rebecca Lee i Dorsey testified that Mrs. Swanton had I called upon her some time between July 12th and 17th. She wanted to be examined as to whether she was enceinte. Mrs. Dr. Dorsey made tie examination and found evidence th«t an operation had been performed, t'tie witness also stated that a physician had evidently attempted an abortion. This was important testimony in favor of the defendant, as it was shown by the testimony for the prosecution that Mrs. Dr. Latta was not called on to attend Mrs. Swanton until July 25th. John Bryson testified that he had known Miss Dr. Latta for over thirty years. He knew her when she was a little child in lowa, and that her reputa tion and standing was of the very best. After the introduction of several wit nesses in rebuttal, the lawyers will argue the case on Friday. KEEPING UP THE BOOM. The Demand for Marriage Licenses Continues Large. A number of residents of this county will etart in the new year as benedicts. Those who secured marriage licenses yesterday were the following named: Samuel Harbison, aged 27, native of Indiana, to Susan A. Stevenson, aged 25, native of Canada. Joseph P.

Union Pacific Officials in a Peck of Trouble Over the Bridge Affair—The Wabash Dons Its War Paint. Associated Press Dispatches. Omaha, Dec. 31. —A temporary injunc tion was granted on petition of Ernest Stull, of Omaha, to prevent the $150,000 bonds issued by the city to aid the Union Pacific railroad in the construc tion of a union depot here, from being turned over to that company. The in junction is based on the grounds that the Union Pacific should allow all roads access to the depot on reasonable terms, and that it now shows a disposition to violate its contracts. The hearing was set for January sth. The Milwaukee officials made no fur ther attempt to move trains today. Their attorneys, on Friday, will ask Judge Doane to commit the assistant general manager of the Union Pacific for contempt in failing to have the order of the court, complied with. The Mil waukee representatives claim that the Union Pacific tore up the track within an hour after the service of the restrain ing order on Holcoinb. The Wabash road has discovered that it had an inter j est in the track torn up, and has donned its war paint. Alter the order was served on the Union Pacific last night, and that com pany learned from the court that St. Paul trains could come across the bridge, an attempt was made to bring a j fast train on the latter road from Coun cil Bluffs. The train progressed bat a | short distance when it was brought tu,a ; standstill by the tracks being torn up i for 150 feet. An attempt was made to | take the train over another route, but the switch was found blocked by an engine ordered there to keep the train from going through. Summons were served tonight on Gen eral Manager Clark and other officers of the Union Pacific railroad, commanding them to appear before Judge Doane Saturday, and show cause why they should not be fined for contempt in vio lating the injunction forbidding inter fering with the movement of Milwaukee trains. BUSINESS FAILURES. The Liabilities for 1890 the Greatest Since 1884. New York, Dec. 31. —The business failures occurring throughout the United Slates for 1890, as reported by Dunn, are 10,007 in number, being but twenty-five greater than in 1889.

These are the largest liabilities since 1884, when they amounted co $226,000,000. Louisiana Bonds. New Orleans, Dec. 31. —Yesterday Hope & Co., Amsterdam bankers, filed suit against the board of liquidation of Louisiana, praying that said board fund 9042 bonds of the state, amounting to over $4,000,000. into consolidated bonds. The board of liquidation met two weeks ago and refused to land the bonds, hence the application to the courts. A Wall Street Assignment. New York, Dec. 31.—Bateman & Co., bankers, assigned to John A. Garver this morning, without preference. Arthur O. Pateman also made an in dividual assignment. MaeGrane Coxe, I counsel for the suspended firm, said the i liabilities would not reach $1,000,000.
