The Ciroular Showing the Condition of
tbi Chamber—Other Business of the
In accordance with the motion of Col.
H. Q. Otis, at the last regular meeting
of the chamber of commerce, to the ef
fact that every member of the chamber
be constituted a committee to obtain at
least one new member for that organiza
tion, the acting secretary on Tuesday
last sent to each member a copy of the
following circular:
Pear Sir : The chamber of commerce
is an institution of which you are a
member, and in whose work you are di
rectly interested. In the two years of
its existence it has accomplished an in-
I calculable amount of good for this sec
tion. Its last achievement—the orange
carnival at Chicago—has made Southern
California the talk of half the continent,
and in time every line of trade and in
vestment will feel a quickening impulse
from this magnificent piece of advertis
As one who has the interests of the
section at heart, you have been gratified
at the accomplishment of such work ; as
a member of the chamber you have un
hesitatingly given your quota toward
carrying it out.
In its efforts to push work of this sort
during the dull times that have pre
vailed in the last two years, the cham
ber has gone a little beyond its depth
and is now fifteen hundred dollars in
For the organization to continue in its
present fields of labor, it is necessary
that this sum should be raised —and
raised immediately.
This can be done only through the
united and vigorous action of all its
At a meeting of the chamber held Fri
day, May Bth, it was moved and carried
that every member of the chamber be
appointed a special committee of one to
bring in one new member—more than
one to be acceptable if they could be ob
tained—but one at least to be expected
from each of the 350 members.
The mit iation fees secured by this pro
cess would pay the debt, and the in
creased income would enable the cham
ber to do better work and keep out of
financial difficulties.
The city of Los Angeles certainly con
tains 700 enterprising, public-spirited
men. It should be the duty of the 350
existing members to find out the other
350 and see that their names go down on
the list.
It is expected that the work will for
the most part be accomplished during
the next two weeks. All the names
should be in before the next regular
meeting of the chamber.
The auestion has been asked : Will a
subscription of $5 be accepted in lieu of
the desired member? The chamber will
be more benefited by new members, but
at the meeting it was decided that sub
scriptions would be very acceptable in
their stead if they cannot be secured.
You will find enclosed two application
blanks, a list of the members up to the
last regular meeting, and a circular ex
plaining thework of the chamber. At
the next meeting a general report of the
results of the undertaking will be pre
pared and made public.
The special committee appointed to
solicit members has sent in another list
since the one recently published in the
Herald. It is as follows :
Geo. W. Burton and A. G. Eisfeller, of
"California," Enoch Pepper,
R. F. Del Valle, Seward Cole,
Los Angeles Pressed Brick and Terra
Cotta company, by L. F. Miller, man
ager; J. A. Henderson,
W. E. Beeson, Chas. Bauer,
C. A. Coffman. Ri- Joseph F. Dye, Ven
vera, tura,
Eckstrom & Stras- Graff & Lotham,
burg, Joseph Gilbert,
C. H. Hance, Harris & Frank,
Lazarus & Melzer, E. L. Mayberry,
T. D. Mott, Jr., Pacific Truck Co.,
Geo. S. Patton, San J. E. Pleasants,
Gabriel, Santa Ana,
Conrad Scheerer, Joe P. Taggart,
Frank Walker, James Grant.
The committee desires to work unit
edly, and as several members of it were
obliged to attend to private business,
work was suspended for the past two
days. They will go to work again today
and another large list will doubtless be
the result.
Arrangements are about completed for
the reception to be given to the orange
carnival delegates at the chamber of
commerce rooms, on Saturday night.
The alfair will begin at 0:30, and will
comprise an informal social time, a ban
quet, music, toasts and speeches by
prominent citizens. Members of the
chamber and their friends will partici
pate in the reception, and a right royal
good time is anticipated. The acting
secretary has the tickets at his office,
which will be sold at $1 each.
Six capitalists from Chicago have
already arrived in Los Angeles as the
direct result of the orange carnival, and
are now engaged in eearching for eligible
orange land to purchase. It is under
stood that two others have already
made large purchases of good land and
are busy making arrangemtnls for set
ting out trees at the proper time.
In response to numerous inquiries as
to whether any attempt was made to
keep a register" or list of those making
inquiries about Southern California at
the orange carnival, Superintendent
Frank Wiggins replies in the negative.
The orange carnival was not an adver
tising scheme in any sense, only so far
as it advertised the country itself, and
it was regarded as impolitic to keep any
such list, in view of the many calls that
would be made for it by real estate men
and those having private schemes to

Unexpected Ending tv the Life of a Mich
igan Congressman.
Congressman Melbourne H. Ford, who
was recently stricken with apoplexy and
was found dead in
bed, was one of the
bright young men
of Michigan. He
lived at Grand
liapids, and bad
just been re-elect
ed to congress in a
district which de
feated him in the
preceding election
by a majority as
large as the Demo
cratic one which
elected him this
time. He was born
lit Saline, Mich.,
in 1849, and enlist
ed at the Brooklyn navy yard when four
teen years old as a boy seaman. He was
assigned to a place on the frigate Sabine,
which was sent to Fortress Monroe.
The war ending he sailed in European
waters upon the Colorado, the flagship of
the Mediterranean fleet. He later entered
the Naval academy at Annapolis, but sick
ness compelled him to leave the service.
He was the youngest member of the G. A.
R. in Michigan. He studied law after he
left the navy and drifted into politics. He
was elected to congress in 1886, and made a
record as a member of the committee on
immigration. He had also served in the
legislature and was the author of "Ford's
Analysis." He was mentioned as a
Democratic gubernatorial candidate last

• The Best Unimproved Orange Land
In Southern California, in one of Nature's most lovely valleys,
lying between Redlands and Riverside, with soil fully equal'to
either, where there are no rocks or brush, and requires very little
grading; where nearly 9000 acres are already sold, mostly to
settlers; where hundreds of families are now living in their own
houses, and are today planting Oranges, Peaches, Prunes, Plums,
and Apricots and Raisin Grapes; where WATER is on the tract,
and is being delivered at the highest corner of every 10-acre lot
as rapidly as men and money can do it.
You will see a duplicate of what REDLANDS is today; where the
ten acres you buy now at $100 per acre, will "improved," be worth
from $1000 to $2000 per acre. Where else can you in four years'
