SUGGESTIVE FIGURES. Few people realize the immensity of the beet sugar interest in the immediate perspective in Southern California. The government bounty of two cents a pound on domestic production is the real in centive to the prosecution of this speci alty with energy and success. Take, for instance, the Chino beet sugar experi ment. This year, on the Chino ranch, some three thousand acres will be set out in the sugar beet. In the immedi ate neighborhood of the Chino, there will be a thousand additional acres. Those who are most competent to make an intelligent estimate say that the yield of the beet in this section of Southern California will amount to twenty tons to the acre. These figures look extrava gant, and they would be in any other quarter of the United States, but here they are not in any sense extreme. This estimate would give eighty thou sand tons of beets as the total outcome of tbe Chino country and its vicinity this year. By experiments made by those interested in the new industry the beet of this section of Southern California will yield, at the least, eighteen per cent, sugar. In other words, these eighty thousand tons of beets will yield upwards of thirteen thousand tons of sugar. The govern ment bounty alone on this showing will be $520,000. This is at the rate of $130 an acre from the federal bounty, to say nothing about what the sugar will sell lor. Putting the price of sugar at only two cents a pound—the sum given as a bounty—we find that the net returns from this four thousand acres would be $1,040,000, or at the rate of $260 to the acre. i The total cost of the Chino plant, with all its expensive imported machinery, will be only $600,000. Nothing is more certain than that this entire outlay will be more than reimbursed in the first year. It is not surprising that, under the circumstances, there is a great move ment for the cultivation of the sugar beet in Los Angeles and the adjoining southern counties. A Chicago cap italist, connected with the firm of Rand, McNally& Co., on learning of the great profits incident to this business, has announced it to be his pur pose to start another beet sugar manufactory in this neighborhood. There is nothing at all extraordinary in this. The vineyards of Europe yield about one ton of grapes to the three or four common to the vineyards of Cali fornia. Our soil is specially rich in saccharine constituents. There will be the same disproportion in our favor in the yield of the sugar beet, as compared with the sugar farms of Germany and France, that there is in that of the grape. The bounty of the government gives atability to the industry, and there is no earthly reason why Southern California should not reap a rich harvest from an agricultural experiment to which this region is so happily adapted. Amonoht the many works calculated to bring Southern California prominent ly before the people is The San Gabriel Valley, the Heart of Southern Califor nia, which was issued by the enterpris ing citizens of that place as a souvenir of the Southern California orange carni val, which was recently held at Chicago. It is prefaced by a poem of A. T. Haw ley, whom old Angeleiios will remember, entitled San Gabriel Mission Bells, and is rounded up by a short description ot the valley, from the pen of Mr. James M. Tiernan. Ten thousand copies of this publication were issued and distrib uted at Chicago. The old mission was founded in 1771. In passing it may be well to mention the fact that in 1870 the Archduke Ludwig Salvator, the nephew of the emperor of Austria, spent some months incognito in Los Angeles. When he returned to Vienna he issued from the imperial press a beautiful volume illustrated with sketches from his own pencil, prominent amongst which was an illustration of the oid Mission. This souvenir brochure is also ornamented with a cut of this venerable structure. The editor, in summarizing the claims of this exquisite region, indulges the following just re marks : In fertility, too, this favored valley excels; a signal proof of this is the fact that, whilst all the missions of Califor nia were started on an equality, each being entirely dependent upon its own resources and those of the surrounding country, the San Gabriel Mission soon became by far the richest of them all. , Here nature is met with in her kindest mood. She makes no stubborn fight to withhold her treasures, but rather yields up her riches abundantly to gentle persuasion; whilst, in addition, the abundant supply of water, the depth of soil, and freedom from wind and storm, all unite to make this spot a veritable Garden of Eden. Nothing in the power of tongue or pen is too good to say of the matchlesß San Gabriel valley. The scriptural Eschol and the Vale of Cashmere could not have surpassed if they equaled this delightful epot, even with the flowery poetry of Moore thrown in as to the lat ter region of enchantment. BLAINE AS A DIPLOMATIC THIMBLE RIGGER. There are wheels within wheels, and this sort of intricate machinery is well illustrated by the Harrison administra tion. We are told that this public func tionary is determined to appropriate some of the triumphs of this "grand administration" to himself. The Her ald would beg to intimate that it would require a ninety million magnifying glass, of "double hextra power," to em ploy the earnest and eloquent language of Samuel Weller, to discover anything like "grandeur" in this administration. To the man whose impressions of mat ters and things are regulated by common sense, it would seem that we have a sort of cheese paring administration—one in which the Amer ican eagle is made to take on a rather dyspeptic and enfeebled look. When Thomas Francis Bayard was secretary of I state for the United States, under Mr. | Cleveland's administration, there was a ; quite general impression that he lacked vigor, and was rather disposed to give the tuaviter iv modo undue, prominence jin his intercourse with the British embassy. We confess that we slightly shared that impression our selves. But what a lion-hearted diplomat was Bayard as compared with the great Jingo secretary of state of the Harrison regime t Here we have it announced that this year the Bering sea is to be a mare ciau»um, and that not even the Alaska Fur Seal company is to be allowed to take a seal. Of course, this is a very diaphanous covering of a square back down. No such concession could ever have been wrung from Mr. Bayard, notwithstanding his pleasant and courtly intercourse with the British embassy at Washington. The whole thing looks very much like a preliminary to a dead crawfishing on the Bering sea question. We are told that this action ot the American govern ment is traceable to the direct initiative of Mr. Harrison himself, who desires to cut a figure in this "grand administration." This may or may not be. Blame was expected to do a great deal of roaring by his special admirers whenever an opportunity presented itself of twisting the tail of the British lion. He was supposed to be the mod ern embodiment of Bottom the Weaver, who asked to be cast in the lion's part because he could roar. And, lo and behold! we find the Plumed Knight roaring as gently as any sucking dove. This surprises no one who is really familiar with Blame's career. When he was President Garfield's secre tary of state he showed himself to be ! the moat timid of all diplomatists ; and, to the surprise of those Irish Americans who were disposed to take stock in him, he allowed Irish American citizens to languish in British prisons without mak ing anything that could in common courtesy be called a protest. And there they languished until President Cleve land came into power, and interposed a peremptory protest which secured their release. Perhaps the most sen sational surprise in our later po litical history is the tameness of our Jingo secretary of state when he is placed iv the exact position in which he could begin to twist tiie tail of the British lion aforesaid. He instantly be comes as mild as mils. The angry frown disappears from bia brow, the dis sonance from his voice, and he emerges as mild a mannered man as ever scut tled ship or cut a throat. Verily, the unexpected ia alwaya sure to happen to those misguided admirera who think that James G. Blame is anything but what he is, viz., a most consummate actor. The Taxpayers' Protective association ought to be strengthened and energized. In this movement there is the nucleus of much good to the people of this city and county. The attempt of the board of supervisors to browbeat Mr. Edgar Moore, the expert, should not be al lowed to stop the investigation. It should rather stimulate our citizens to earnest and united labor. What has become of the prodigious sums raised by taxation in this county? Will anybody pretend that we have either roads or bridges, or anything to show for these prodigal outlays ? Where have all these imperial sumsgone? And echo answers, "where?" An admission of gross irreg ularity in the drawing of warrants has been made by the board. Keep up the good work and make it effective. In all probability if the taxpayers of Los Angeles county had understood that an incident of a Republican ascendancy would be the prominence given to one Aaron Smith, there would have been no Republican ascendancy. The fact that this individual can be made a public issue will undermine and blow up, so to speak, any party or board that identifies itself with him. There are entirely too many supernumeraries about the court house, and the most offensive of them all is this man Smith. Down with the official parasite! Blessed be the man who introduces a new vedolia cardinalis to rid us of the political white scale. The work of the coming Columbian exposition is being systematized. Hon. L. J. Rose has been assigned to the charge of the wine and horse depart ments of the California exhibits. It would have been difficult to have made a better selection. What Mr. Rose does not understand about these specialties there is no use of any one else trying to learn. The crop reports from Southern Cali fornia are most encouraging. Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties report a promise of the largest yields ever re corded. Los Angeles county may be put in the same category, and with special emphasis. THE LOS ANGELES HERALD- THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 7, 1891.. The report of the New Orleans grand jury is evidently not partial to the Mafia, and the majority of the press of the United States quite as evidently stand in with the grand jury. One very strong point is made in that document, and that is that the books of the Italian consul at New Orleans show that eleven hundred Italian convicts and suspects have beenianded in the Crescent City in the past few years. This is a circum stance that the Marquis Rudini ought to be made acquainted with with all due particularity and dispatch. It has a very powerful if oblique bearing upon the riot. A correspondent in other columns takes a sensible view of the widening of Los Angeles street. He believes in invoking the aid of the courts to protect property holders. This is square, sensi ble talk. There is no warrant by which a city council can confiscate a man's property. The process known as an injunction lies as against any measure confessedly oppressive and unjust. Mr. Burnett and the other property holders ought to stand by their rights and fight the spoliators to the bitter end. The latest dispatches from San Diego state that the Chilean steamer Itata has given Marshal Gard the slip, and steamed out to sea, carrying one of the deputy marshals with her. A crank has been arrested in New York for announcing his intention to kill Jay Gould, unless bought off for a cool million or two.

GOT OFF EASY. Captain Verney Sentenced One Year on A Plea of Guilty. London, May 6.—Captain Verney, member of parliament, today pleaded not guilty to the charge of procuring a governess, Miss Ueckett, for im moral purposes, but pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to pro cure her. Captain Verney was then sentenced to one year's imprisonment, without hard labor. During the trial the court was packed with people eager to witness the sensations of the case. Captain Verney, though downcast in ap pearance, pleaded in a firm voice. Counsel for the defense in his plea for ' the prisoner, alluded to the prisoner's distinguished services in the Crimea and iv parliament, and undoubt edly won sympathy for the dis graced ex-naval officer. The recorder in sentencing Captain Verney, said he had come to the conclusion,through th? evidence given, that the case of Miss Nellie Beckett was not the only case of procuration in which the Captain had been implicated, and there/ore he could not lean towards the side of mercy so ! much as he could have done had it been an isolated case. THE SPANISH TREATY. The Spanish Minister at Washington In structed to Sign It. Madrid, May 6. — A draft of the treaty between Spain and the United States was sent to the Spanish minister iat Washington last week, with instruc tions to sign it immediately.

A novel plan to beat the railroads and make money has been made public through inquiries at the Oceanic Steam ship company's office as to the genuine ness of certain letters requesting free transportation from Kansas City to Los Angeles over the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad in favor of Dr. 11. F. Beam, a former resident of San Diego, says Tuesday's San Francisco Examiner. Tlie letters are type-written, dated from San Francisco and bear a forged sig- I nature of J. D. Sprockets it Bros, j They are on what purports to be I letter blanks of the Oceanic Steamship I company. The letter heads, however, are as much forgeries as the body of the letter and signature, being evidently printed in the east for use in this swind ling venture. Dr. Beam has written to Messrs. Spreckels, inquiring whether the swindler, whom he calls Jackson, had turned up ut San Francisco, He had represented himself to be an officer of the Oceanic company, traveling upon credentials issued by Messrs. Spreckels, and bad induced Dr. Beam to part with $40 for a free first class jjhss from Pitts burg to San Francisco, plus a loan of $25. He had furnished Dr. Beam with general and special requests for free transportation in Messrs. Spreckels' name; but the pass did not materialize, as the railroad officiate referred the mat ter to San Francisco and discovered the forgeries. It ia presumed that this ingenious swindler has robbed more than oue individual who was willing to run risks to secure cheap rail road transportation ; but it is the duty of the first passenger agent to whom his | bogus credentials are exhibited to retain theno, and hand him over to the au ' tliorities to answer for his fraud. Dr. Beam appears to have been easily duped, as he confesses in his letter to Messrs. Spreckels that in exchange for $40 be was persuaded to accept a general letter over their signature, setting out that he had been for three years a surgeon in the employ of the Oceanic company, when, in fact, he had never been in its employ ; and when thisjletter was found insufficient he traveled with Jackson from Chicago to Kansas City, where he subsequently received a special letter, purporting to be signed by Messrs. Spreckels, expressing re gret that the general one, which recited a lie, and which was post-dated several months, had not been found sufficient, and inclosing a special request for free transportation for him from Kansas City to Los Angeles. These letters were sent to General Passenger Agent Nicholson at Topeka, with a request that the pass be forwarded to him at Kansas City, and when it did not reach him he wrote to the Oceanic company, telling his story, and asking that Jackson be made restore his $66. Jackson, it is needless to say, has not appeared in the Oceanic company's office. —————— The Truth About Cleopatra.
