SUNDAY, MAY 84, 1891, It now seems possible that the persons and organizations that are working for the rejection of Maxwell as chief of the horticultural department of the world's fair may succeed. In that event the place will go to another state, perhaps Florida, probably Illinois. This is what the opposition will accomplish, and Cali fornia will be the loser. The opening of the Arcadia hotel, which is fixed for the Ist of June, will signalize the beginning of lively times in the City by the Sea. Never Bince the anction sale which signalized the start ing of the town, in July, 1875, have things looked more promising there. Building is going on on an extensive scale and the outlook is quite roseate. The New York Commercial Bulletin calls attention to the fact that the Amer ican people are becoming a nation of fruit-eaters, thanks mainly to the vast production of California and to the great advance made in the facilities of distribution. The Bulletin truly says that the increased consumption of fruit by our people will improve their physi cal and moral health. It will replace indigestion with good digestion, and produce a stimulating effect upon the stomach which will dissipate the crav ing that great numbers of our people bave for strong , liquors. The Bulletin hae evidently given the fruit question deep and scientific study. The board of directors of the chamber of commerce adopted a very sweeping snd defamatory motion Friday night when it sanctioned the declaration that the appointment of Walter S. Maxwell aa chief of the department of horticul ture of the world's fair would be a detri ment to Southern California.'ln sending forth a message of this grave and un wise character the directors onght to have first got the assent to it of the members of the chamber itself. We much doubt whether the body of the chamber will approve of this smug way of libelling one of its own mem bers; especially when it is remembered ■ that this same body endorsed this man Maxwell for this same position a few weeks ago. Tiikke have been forty millions of gold sent to Europe within the past few weeks. This seems to be the result of the withdrawal of large sums from English and continental banks by Rus sia, consequent on the refusal of the Rothschilds and Hirsches to help the government of the czar to place a new loan. Russia needs the money for im mediate use, and is therefore contract ing her usual call deposits' in the Lon don and continental banks. The finan ciers of Europe are alarmed at the steady withdrawal of Russian deposits, and are doing all they can to fill the Vacuum in their cofferß with American gold. Does not the fact that a draft of so comparatively small an amount causes a financial disturbance in European money centers show conclu sively the necessity of reinforcing gold with silver? If bimetallism prevailed the power to meet emergencies such as this would be doubled, and the danger of a financial crisis be rendered infinitely less possible than it is now. Why should Great Britain be tied to a single metal when there is not gold enough in her banks to pay 3 per cent, of their call obligations if a run were made upon them? She will probably only awake seriously to her error after she has gone through a terrible calamity. • Ik we thought that there was the slightest chance that Mr. J. de Barth Shorb could be appointed to Mr. Max well's position if the latter should be rejected, we would give him our willing assistance. But we know —that is, we are convinced that we know —that if Maxwell is rejected, the place will go to another state, probably Illinois. There fore we believe that it is the patriotic thing to insist upon the confirmation of Maxwell, for to offer another candi date at this late hour will only, in our opinion, accomplish one result, and that is to weaken the chances of California in controlling through one of its citizens the department of the world's fair which is of the greatest importance to our state. It is greatly to Mr. Max well's credit that, notwithstanding he has been for weeks a target for the tiost venomous abuse and libelous detrac tion, not a single word has been heard from him in his own defense. Yet, when he is "nblicly eha rr "»d with unfitness to" take charge o! the horticultural d« parturient of the world's fair, he might Bay with truth that he was the first man to dispatch from San Pedro year after year fleets laden with Los Angeles wheat for Europe; and that for a series of years he furnished the greater por tion of the supplies to all the United States army posts in Ari zona. When his enemies dwell upon his having been a coal-dealer, knd roll it under their lips as a sweet inoreel, they fail to add that he was a coal dealer on a tolerably largo scale, as ha purchased a steamship in Europe for the purpose of supplying hia yards both in thisj city and Ban Diego. It seems to us that a man who could conduct affairs of so extensive a character is capable of managing the business of a single department in the Chicago fair. THE BOOM OF PRODUCTION IN FULL SWING. There is not a man in this community pessimistic enough to close his eyes to the iact that we are in the midst of a boom, founded on production, that will exceed anything known in the previous history of Los Angeles. We by no means intend to restrict its scope by this refer ence. The rest of Southern California will share very fully in the revival which is just at hand—which has, in fact, already begun. Many causes conspire to direct atten tion to Southern California. In the first place, Florida is practically played out as a sanitarium. People of judgment all over the United States have at last real ized that the coast region embraced be tween Point Concepcion and the Ameri can line below San Diego possesses a climate incomparably superior to that of the Riviera, and that they can obtain all its advantages while creating poetical homes for them selves. In the eastern stales when a man plans an ideal country home he knows that his expenses will be bound lees, and that it is a very open question as to whether he will ever get even a fractional part of it back. When his friends learn that he has embarked on a scheme of fancy farming, they shrug their shoulders and indulge in a great deal of good humored raillery when his back is turned. And they are justified in this little pleasantry by the tact that theee ideal homes in every instance in volve unlimited outlay and very limited returns —except in the esthetic sense. Here we have the ideal with every charming suggestion of classical and biblical narrative, and an extravagant interest on the investment besides. This fact is bringing us a large and most desirable class of settlers. The orange carnival is doing its per fect work in sending to Los Angeles myriads of people well equipped with coin, who are enamored of the idea of growing the orange, lemon, lime, pome granate, olive, and a hundred other staples which are here highly profitable. They hear accounts of the exceptional delights and profits attending the growth of these eclectic products of the earth, and they desire to go and do like wise. The railway situation of Los Angeles is most interesting. A number of lead ing and well-heeled capitalists, at the head of whom are the Messrs.Kerens and Hobart, of St. Louis, are giving us a ter minal railway system, at an outlay of three millions of dollars. They are deter mined to add to this great gift the com pletion of harbor improvements at San Pedro which will make that port one of the most commodious and serviceable on .the coasL Then the Belt Electric railway people are by no means to be overlooked. It is now pretty well understood that the Southern Pacific railway is behind this movement, and the three or four mil lions of dollars which it will require be fore completion will come quite readily from inexhaustible reservoirs. Above all is the era of energetic and persevering production, w Inch will be capped by a railway connecting us with Salt Lake City, which is really behind the plans of the Terminal railway com pany and the plans of the Messrs. Ker ens, Hobart and their associates. Never in the history of Los Angeles county lias our soil demonstrated its matchless fertility in more varied and remuner ative fs'rms than in the present year ot grace, 1891. There is no limit to the fecundity of our acres, or to the moneyed returns which will result from their in telligent and industrious exploitation. Naturally, under such conditions, a veritable boom of production and devel opment —not a speculative boom —has set in. The transactions in real estate are increasing, at improving prices, and they are reported from all sides. This applies both to country and to city property. On Spring street the old boom prices have been nearly regained, and it is by no means a speculative movement, or engineered by specula tive people. The fact that the Cable road and Belt Electric systems will come to within a block of each other at this portion of the city cannot fail to stimu late values. But the upward tendency is observable at every point of Los An geles where a progressive spirit pre vails. The fact is that Los Angeles is today the most interesting point for invest ment in the United States. All the other great rivals of this city, from Denver to Portland, Tacoma and Seattle, are today the victims of over-speculation. There is positively no money to be made for years to come by investments in real estate at the inflated prices which pre vail in all of them. Fortunately for us the prices of real property here, both city and country, are abnormally low, as is natural after emerging from a depression which had lasted three years and a half. A man with his eyes shut cannot fail to make money in Los Angeles city and county now, go where he will. Then we have plenty of room for the enterprising spirits who have failed to find - their hopes realized in Salt Lake City, Denver, Tacoma, Port land, and other ambitious but overdone settlements. Let them come here and assist in developing a region of untold capabilities. There is not a line of human activity in which a brilliant opening does not lie before an enterprising and resourceful man in Los Angeles county. She has al ready started on the up grade, and excelsior was never more clearly written on any section than it is on this at this writing. Our httchstring hangs out. Here is the place to make money, ideal homes, health and happiness. Chicago and Los Angeles are tbe two places set apart for the most magical growths in the next THU: LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 24, 1891. decade. The former city even needs the world's fnir to help her out in the phe nomenal ratios of increase which will be recorded in the next census. Let every Angeleno congratulate himself that he is in the center of such splendid agencies of development as exist here on every hand. The report 0 f the committee on the revision of the confessiorj of faith to the Presbyterian assembly at Detroit makes important and timely changes''in some of the chapters that have been under the fire of criticism for many years. The striking out of sections three and four of chapter three and the remodel ing of section .five on foreordination will be acceptable to a large number of mem bers who could not reconcile the idea that the door of salvation had been pre destinately shut to ali but those who had been for all time foreordained as the elect. The amendment is in line with the common conception of man kind of the merciful and forgiving char acter of God and the sanctions of the New Testament. Chapter three, es pecially in these expurgated and modi fied sections, has been a bar to the growth of the church. The revision is to be submitted to the presbyteries, which will report back to the next assembly, when the great debate will come up on its final adoption. The San Francisco Report has been punished by the derision of the com munity for its attempt to be too smart. The afternoon of the fight between Corbett and Jackson, it anticipated the event by giving the detailed accounts of the encounter, in one of which Jackson was made to win, and in the other, Cor bett was the victor. Of course the re porter thought he *ad covered the ground completely, and the readers of the Report could take their choice. The fact that neither of the men knocked the other out, and that the battle was a draw, left the smart Aleck of the Report beautifully in the consomme". His fel low reporters are merciless, and another sudden and mysterious disappearance may be confidently looked for. It is not always well to be too previous, espe cially in journalism. There is an adjustment of track out at the point where the Southern Pacific and Redbndo railways intersect each other, about Grand avenue and Jefferson street, that is very suggestive of a traffic arrangement between the mag nates of the former road and Captains Ainsworth and Thompson. A very spirited business is springing up at Re dondo, and the shipments of lumber, especially, are quite large. The pro prietors of the Redondo wharf and rail way own very valuable timber interests up in the northern country, and they have entered into the business of ship ping lumber very extensively to this section. The Southern Pacific is doubt less willing to take a hand in distribut ing it. We have heie, doubtless, the secret of the V that that company is now putting in at the point named.

A Meeting of Property Owners Protest Against Its Opening. . An enthusiastic meeting of property owners living on the line within the as sessment district of the opening of Ixw Angeles street, was held last evening at the Opera House hall. The object of the meeting was to protest against and devise ways and means -to defeat the scheme. A committee of three, con sisting of George Hansen, A. R. Fraser and E. I.eek, was appointed to wait on the council tomorrow to request them to abandon the opening of Los Angeles street. In the event of the committee not being able to make satisfactory ar rangements, the best legal talent in the city is to be secured to fight the scheme to the bitter end. One of the speakers denounced the opening of so many new streets as swindles, and suggested" that some New Orleans tactics would remedy matters. Another meeting is to be held on Monday night. STRONG FOR SHOP.B. The Board of Trade Follows the Cham ber of Commerce Example. At a special meeting of the board of directors of the Los Angeles board of trade, laid yesterday, the following pre amble and resolutions were unanimous ly adopted: Whereas, It appears that there is strong opposition irr« California to the appointment of Walter S. Maxwell as chief of the bureau of horticulture, viticulture and floriculture ; and Whereas, His appointment is likely to fail of confirmation by reason of this opposition; and Whereas, It is desirable that said ap pointment should be conceded to Cali fornia; therefore, be it Resolved, That the Lob Angeles board of trade does hereby heartily "endorse for said position Hon.
