The attention of the up country press is at last being attracted to the pro digious potato crop of Southern Cali fornia, which is estimated to be so large that it would require 22,500 cars to carry it away. This enormous production of this popular tuber is a striking com mentary on the worth of the statistics of Robert P. Porter's census, which j placed the amount of land devoted to spuds at a trifle over five hundred acres for the three states of Washington/Or egon and California. It is i estimated that, at present prices, the potato crop alone of Southern California would yield $3,000;000. Of course such prices are not to be expected, but the advantages possessed by the people of Los Angeles county, for instance, for growing pota toes are not to be exaggerated. There is no difficulty in raising two crops yearly hereabouts, and these can be followed by one of beans, all in the same twelvemonth. There are few countries in the world i of which as much can be said. Both of these crops can be so alternated as to bring high prices. The early potatoes of the spring will find no rivals ; while, when the eastern people discover that the delicious new potato can be fur nished them in the fall, there will be no lack of demand. The business of supplying the states and territories to the east of us with early spring and winter vegetables is soon destined to at tain mammoth proportions, and it is doubtful whether even our fruit inter ests will exceed it in value. The change which has come over Los Angeles from a producing point of view could not be better illustrated than by the fact that, three years ago, potatoes were coining into this city by the car load and train load, while we are now shipping great quantities of the tuber to Kansas and adjoining states, the points from which we drew our former supply. Cabbages, cauliflowers, fresh tomatoes and immense quantities Of other vegetables, are also being shipped to the east, a single Italian gardener in the neighborhood of Downey City hav ing supplied by contract ninety carloads of cabbages and twenty-five carloads of cauliflowers for the eastern market this year. This is a new industry, but it is advancing even more rapidly than our fruit production. It is a fine instance of retributive po litical justice that Wanamaker, who be came a member of President Harrison's cabinet through his having been instru mental in the raisingof an immense cor- ■ ruption fund to buy the presidential election of 1888, should be pilloried in the eye of the public in connection with the rotten Keystone bank of Phil adelphia. There is a quite general be lief in well-informed circles in the east that United States Comptroller Lacey and Bank Examiner Drew were both used to screen the Keystone bank until I Wanamaker and his friends were able to get their money out of its vaults. It was allowed to remain open months after its utter rottenness was known to the officials of the United States government whose duty it is to see that depositors are pro tected. The people of Philadelphia be lieve that Mr. Wanamaker used his high influence in the administration of the United States to gain undue advan tage for himself and his cronies. Presi dent Harrison affects to be very anxious to have the affair ventilated, and it is to be hoped that he is in earnest. The postmaster-general is a smooth citizen, but it would not be surprising if the time had at last arrived to run him into his hole. The Express's suggestion that the several public bodies and representa tive citizens of Los Angeles should take advantage of the presence in our midst of Hon. W. W. Bowers, who sits as con gressman from the old sixth district, to make him acquainted with our require ments, is a good one. Mr. Bowers will arrive in Los Angeles Sunday, and will be the guest of Mr. Hervey Lindley. Hon. C. N. Felton, the new California senator, has been indisposed for some time past, and has spent five or six weeks at Paso Robles springs. He is now thoroughly recovered and will doubtless pay us his long promised visit. His arrival should find the board of trade and chamber of commerce thor oughly provided with statistics which will inform him of our needs as to a public building and harbor improve ments. There is something that is calculated to take one's breath away in the propo sition that the city of Los Angeles has been paying the superintendent of jan itors of the city schools $115 a month. What need is there of such an official at any price? Jobbery is written all over such a leak in the city treasury. Why bave a superintendent of janitors at all? Why could not the teachers !of the sev eral schools give instructions to janitors and report them if they are neglecting their duties? Of course, there would be no difficulty in discharging incompetent persons and having them replaced by better men or women, as the caee might be. There is something very redolent of the extravagance which has character ized every department of our city gov ernment in this janitor job. SHAM REPUBLICS. The various presidents of Central and South American republics seem to have a curious notion of their functions, but they are very practical withal. Guate mala has rejoiced in executives with special aptitudes to capture the nimble dollar. Before President Barrios was killed he had had the business precau tion to Send three or four millions of dollars to New York city, and his widow and family are now living in splendor in a grand palace on Fifth avenue in Goth am. The present president of the repub lic, Barrillas, seems to bs no whit be hind his predecessor. He is credited with having pocketed a cool million and a quarter in refunding the debt of Guatemala. The taxpayers there groan, but they are too well acquainted with the peremptory methods of such men as Barrios and Barrillas to make their protests very loud. Dropping down to Chile, Ralmaceda, who seems to stand well with the United States— at least with the authorities at Wash ington—is about as big a tyrant as one often hears of even in that country pro lific in such creatures. The fiction of a republic in these countries ia highly amusing. Dr. Francia and Lopez are the models on which they are all found ed. Going from the mainland, and striking the so-called republic of Hayti, one finds in Hippolyte a tyrant who could give points to a Nero in ferocity and disregard of all law human and divine. It is somewhat astonishing that the United States and other civilized gov ernments permit this monster to murder on the wholesale and bully their repre sentatives. The German minister seems to have been the only member of the diplomatic body that has dared to talk to the tyrant Hippolyte with anything like firmness. By all accounts Minister Douglass, who represents the United I States, allowed himself to be com pletely terrorized by the Haytien des pot. There is about as much genuine spirit of republicanism in the Span ish-speaking republics of Central and South America as there is blood in a turnip or milk in a stone. Just about the time the world had begun to make up its mind that Chile at least was about to prove an exception to the rule that all the repub lics to the south of us were despotisms masquerading in the colois of liberty, Balmaceda dispelled the hope. The chances of anything like a profitable reciprocity with these countries are faint indeed, and the constant turmoil which prevails in them makes Mr. Blame's project of a railway starting at the line of the United States and traversing the coantries which lie between our borders and the Straits of Magellan, ridicr. loua in the extreme. Mexico is the one exception where stability and quiet reign, and that she is at last quiescent is due to the iron will and uncommon sagacity of Porfirio Diaz, who ia really the absolute master of that country, but who seems .to have some fine in stinsta of civilization. What would happen there should his strong hand be taken from the helm of state it would be hard to conjecture. Col. Forhythe, of Fresno, whose fate is now swinging in the scales as head of the horticultural bureau of the world's fair, is not disposed to sit down tamely under the aspersions of Mr. Hatch, who made the extraordinary statement that the colonel had formerly kept an assig nation house at the Geysers. This was indeed a curious charge. The Fresno raisin man replies that his hotel at the Geysers was patronized by the best people of the state and he brands his impugneras "a contemptible scoundrel and liar." The impulse which leads Californians to back-bite and slander each other is one hard to understand. The most ordinary in stinct of common sense would have suggested that we should have picked out our man for the bureau of horticulture and stood by him to the death. The fight which was originally made against Maxwell was unwise in the extreme, and it has been followed up by the same dog-in-the-manger tac tics ever since. Directpr-General Davis has at last loßt all patience, and he threatens, if Colonel Forsy the is not con firmed, to abolish the horticultural bu reau altogether and to make it a part of the agricultural department. There is something very contemptible in the jealousies and bickerings of Californians. Personal by-play and detraction are said, on good authority, to have lost California a cabinet position in General Harrison's cabinet. The Mansfield oil well, in the western portion of the city, is making a pleasant record for its owners. The oil is of a fine lubricating quality, and quite valua ble. The present yield is reported at twenty barrels daily. The Temple street well is also showing up in good shape. There is little room for doubt that the city of Los Angeles is under laid by immense deposits of petroleum, and all that is needed to bring it to the surface is to go to sufficient depths. Mr. Porter's census makes the production of petroleum for the state of California in 1889, in barrels of forty-two gallons measure, 147,027, of which 2,160 bar rels were illuminating oil and 144, --867 were grouped as fuel. Lubri cating oil does not figure in the report. This exhibit is doubtless as in accurate as many others which have been pointed out in the Herald. The yield of petroleum has increased enor mously during thepasteighteen months, owing to the exploitation of the Sespe and other measures in Ventura county and the Puente and Pico districts of Los Angeles county. The proper energy and capital will undoubtedly in time bring the California yield up to some THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1891. thing like the Pennsylvania standard, and in the judgment of many experi enced oil experts from the east natural gas can also be developed hero in paying quantities. Thook who have been complaining of the backwardness of the season have nothing to growl about just now. Old Sol is fervid in his attentions to South ern California and the watering places ought to do a driving business. That their innings is at hand will probably be attested by the over-burdened trains bound for Santa Monica, Redondo Reach and our other seaside resorts to day. Preparations have been made to occupy the new court house on July Ist, and a descriptive article devoted to that building appears ip the Herald this morning. One of the judges will have to be accommodated outside till the third story of the edifice is completed. The Herald tips on sporting events are more than commonly clever. Dag worth caught the first and third horses in the Chicago Derby yesterday, and he hit the nail on the head in the Slavin- KHrain mill. The superior courts have concluded to take a vacation from July 13th till August 24th. There will be a detail of some of the judges to attend to criminal business. SCHOOL CELEBRATIONS.

Diagrams Showing the Loca tion of the Offices. The Officials Will Move on the First of July. A Detailed Statement of the Arrange ments—One Superior Judge Left Out—Convenient Offices. The "boys" in the county clerk's of fice will have to run the gauntlet of Mr. T. H. Ward's inquiring glances, whenever they step out for refreshments after the change is made into the new courthouse, and that is why they spend all their spare time these days kicking. The boss has fixed a gilded cage for his office deputies in the new building, the only entrance to which is through his own private apartments. Whether by design or accident, this will subject every man to scrutiny as he passes in and out of the office, and the accom plished county clerk will thus be able to keep a mental tab on the movements of his men which will, perhaps, operate to shut off a great deal of soldiering. This is the only objection the deputy clerks can find to their handsome new quar ters. As the time for the removal of all the county officers into the castle on the hill approaches, a few words with regard to the location of their respective quar ters may be of interest. There has been a scramble for the best locations and largest rooms in the new court house, almost from the time the plans were first drawn, and all is not settled yet. A number of changes have been made by the supervisors from their ori ginal ideas, and it is probable that there will be others up to the time that the last inch of space is occupied. Aa it is arranged now, there wi'l be room for only five superior judges in the building and the sixth department will have to seek quarters outside. The judges on the superior bench drew lots for the four court rooms on the second floor, and Judges Shaw, Clark, Smith and Van Dyke got first choice. Then Judge Mc- Kinley asked the supervisors to fit up the rotunda on the same floor, which had been designed for a law Horary, for his department, and this is now being done. As to Judge Wade, he does not appear to be in it. The supervisors at some future day expect to finish off the third floor, and in the meanwhile de partment three will have to occupy quarters outside of the building. The accompanying diagrams will give a pretty clear idea of the location of the offices of the different departments. The county clerk very properly has the NEW HIGH STREET. BROADWAY. largest space. His quarters are in the basement and on the first floor in the northeast corner of the building, and will be handsomely and conveniently fitted up, an iron stuirway connecting the two floors. The recorder is placed in the southeast corner of the building in the basement and on the first floor, with a connecting stairway as in the clerk's office. The sheriff has the southwest corner of the basement next to the jail entrance, his quarters being subdivided off into a number of suiall rooms. The surveyor has a large apartment next to the clerk's room, and the coroner and public ad ministrator are stowed away in some what limited quarters in the northwest corner of the basement. On the first floor, on the New High street side, are the hall of records, the recorder's private office and the business office of the clerk. The supervisors NEW HIGH STREET. BROADWAY. have allotted themselves the hand somest room in the building— the rotunda on this floor, with a committee room for star chamber sessions attached. The school superintendent and treasurer will occupy the northwest corner of this NEW HIGH STREET. BROADWAY. floor and the assessor and tax collector the southwest corner. Everything is arranged very comfortably for the dear tax-paying public on this floor. You can go into the map room, get the loca- tion of your property, pass into the assessor's office and learn the amount of your bill and then, by stepping through a doorway, meet the" tax collector ana drop your wad. Nothing could be nicer. The second floor is given up to the courts. Judge Shaw, having obtained lirst choice when the lots were drawn, selected the northeast corner of the building. Judge Clark selected the northwest coiner, Judge Van Dyke the southeast and Judge Smith the south west. As stated before, Judge McKin ley's department will be placed in the rotunda, the highest and airiest room on the floor, but not so large as the other court-room. At each end of the hallway on this floor large spaces have been kept for the judges' chambers, which will be fitted up sumptuously. Each court room will have a gallery "for spectators, Rnd the ventilation will be helped by patent steam radiators. The county has agreed to give up the old court house by July 1, but it is al most certain that it will be at least a month later before all of the occupants of the building will be ready to vacate. The contractor for the furniture of the new building has been delayed in get ting his material from the east, and it may be the Ist of September before the new building is completely occupied. Work is being rushed, however, so that as many offices as possible may be ready for occupancy by July Ist. A Brute of a Husband Young Wife—We are told to "oast our bread upon the waters."

The Rope Broke and He was Fined Two Dollars for Being Boozy—He will not Marry Again, Having Tried it Twioe. "That's the last time I will ever get married," sadly remarked C. H. Walters to a HERALD reporter yesterday after noon. "How many times have you been married," asked the reporter. "That was my second venture, and it was a disastrous one from the ntart. My wife liked beer too well. But Jack Ferris, the fellow she skipped out with, is rarely ever sober. They're a good pair and will make a team hard to beat. I don't care a snapof thefinger, only she has taken all my clothes with her." C. H. Walters talked in a similar strain for twenty minutes. Mr. and Mrs. Walters until yesterday lived on Jackson near Center street. Friday morning Walters returned home and was dis mayed to find that his wife was getting ready to leave for parts unknown with another man. She was even dickering with a second-hand man for the sale of the furniture. Walters did not get mad when he made the awful discovery, but he repaired to the nearest saloon and proceeded to get full. He was success ful. The liquor nerved up Walters to return home. He entered the house and soliloquized after this fashion : "To think that my wife should love another. It is awful. What shall I do? Methinks I will make her regret her foolish attachment. I will kill my self!" A few minutes later the neighbors were astonished to learn that Walters had attempted to hang himself, but that he had been frustrated in the at tempt. The police were notified and Officer Home arrested the unhappy husband for being drunk. Yesterday Judge Austin fined him $2,but suspended sentence until Monday. Mrs. Walters made hay while the sun was shining, for when Walters got out yesterday afternoon he found an empty "house. His wife had sold the furniture for $5 and there was nothing left except the growler. Mrs. Walters was seen leaving the house with Ferris. "The scoundrel," said Waltere. He has a wife and five children in Oakland, but I wouldn't care a fig if I had my clothes." Walters will not embrace matrimony again. He says that marriage is a fail ure. HER HUSBAND CAME NOT. So Mrs. Fong You Tired of Life and Suicided. Mrs. Fong You is the name of a China woman who committed suicide last even ing. A dose of opium made the almond eyed daughter of the flowery kingdom a corpse in a few hours. Coroner Weldon was notified, and he visited the quarters in Chinatown occupied by the dead woman. The friends of the deceased state that about two years ago her hus band, Ah Burt, sailed for China, promis ing to either return or send for his wife inside of six months. Ah Burt must have fallen a victim to the charms of another, for he never returned, and lat terly failed to write. Fong You became despondent and swallowed the deadly drug, "alee samee Melican people." Coroner Weldon will hold the inquest today. 1' i Agent Sherwin-Williams Paints, JgHP , I PAINTS, OILS, ETC., \/9vf\ I I MURPHY VARNISH, Brushes and Glues, St. Louis Lead, \l \ LUBRICATING OILS, I Corner Seoond and Main Sts., \ TELEPHONE 1025. tJO> ■■ LOS ANGELES, - - CAL. 5-24 eoC lm EMPTY MAINS.

The dealers come to look at them expecting to scoff, hut go away wondering how it can be done. A lifetime may not see another such display at such prices, the goods aro so rich and the prices so low. Then in baby buggies we have struck a good thing way below regular prices. Here is an Item of interest to you about baby buggies, and the same idea will follow in other goods. Not getting second-hand buggies fast enough to supply our trade* sometime since we bought Borne buggies regular and marked them at prices other dealers get for such goods. As peo - pic expect to get goods cheaper, at Red Rice'B than elsewhere, the result was that the buggies did not sell. I'eople said, Oh, I can get those as cheap anywhere efse We have them yet and are bound by a pledge not to sell them less than such a price. We will probably have them next year. That plan don't suit us. All things come to those who can wait. A Job lot of baby carriages came to us to buy; we got them at a bargain. They are just made, the newest and prettiest patterns you ever saw. Now you can save about ono-thlrd In baby's buggy by buying it at Red Rice's.
