IT PAYS TO FERTILIZE ORANGE OR
CHARDS.
1 f there iseven half truth iv the reports
brought back from the Cocopah coun
try by Colonel Allen about tiiie exist
ence of sulphur mountains and im
mense nitrate deposits in that strange
region, tfeen these discoveries will be
come of vast importance to Southern
California. Outside of the'use that can
be made of them in tbe arte and manu
factures, and in tbe work of powder
making, they are of incalculable value
as soil fertilizers. If the orange output
is to be kept up io our orchards, the ex
haustion of vital matter from the soil
will have to be made up by fertilizing
expedients. Kven now the orchards
that produce the best results are fer
tilised, and it pays well to do so. Mr.
A. B. Chapman, of f?an Gabriel, experi
mented heretofore on a somewhat
moderate scale in his orchards with
bore-dust and other fertilizers. Three
years ago he set apart five acres of trees,
and gave them his personal attention.
He procured bone-dust in San Francisco
(which, however, afterwards turned out
to be villainously adulterated), kept the
trees clean and the soil carefully culti
\ated, and found, when he came to
harvest his crop, that he had re
turns of something over five hun
dred dollars an acre from these five
acres, whilst the rest of the orchard pro
duced results that were far below this.
Mr. Chapman cays it pays to fertilize,
and to put labor on the cultivation of
•the orange. -Speaking of the discover
ies at Cocopah of Colonel Allen, he Bays
that if his reports are true, and it is a
fact that the nitrates and sulphur dis
covered there can be shipped to Yuma
by water, the orange-growers will be
placed within reach of rich fertilizers at
a cost they will be able to bear. As a
proof of the value to the orange crop of
liberal fertilizing, he says that he has
spent $2500 this year for the most ap
proved composts, and that in conse
quence of doing so his orange crop this
year, from present appearances, will
exceed by 5000 boxes the yield of last
season, and last season's yield was con
sidered a good one. Here is an object
lesson which should not be lost on
< range-growers.
Ota esteemed Los Angeles contem
poraries are just now engaged in figur
ing out the fine prospects of their party
for succese in the next presidential
election. The counting of "Mother
Mary's chickens" was an easy job com
pared to any compilations that would
make out a Republican majority for
any Republican. The man who
could achieve such an array
of figures would be capable of
making oct a surplus in tbe na
tional treasury nnde'- a Republican ad
ministration. He could beat Henry
Ueorge in any arithmetical schemes that
would keep poverty down, and knock
out Bellamy in projects for making uni
versal bliss without a supernal ruillen
iuiu. He could square the circle and
solve the problem of universal motion.
In fact, there is nothing he could not do.
If the czar could get him to tackle the
famine proposition no liuesian peasant
would dare to confess that he was hun
gry, and the dicky birds would sing joy
ous notes on the encrusted knolls that
reach up to the belching volcanoes of the
Cocopah country. Treat us not with
such unseeming levity, oh Republican
contemporaries!
Tin: police board have at last taken
hold, in earnest, of the proposition of re
lieving Alameda street from the nuisance
which has so 10-ag infested it. Some
years ago New High street was annoyed
with the worst form of the social evil.
At the protest of the property holders of
that thoroughfare the police authorities
interfered, and most etlectively. If this
could be done at the initiative of pri
vate property holders, the long contin
ued appeal of the whole people of Los
Angeles ought to avail to abate the cry
ing evil of shocking the whole traveling
Community. As the case now stands,
every one who enters or leaves Lob An
geles by the Southern Pacilic railway is
obliged to pass cohorts of bedizened
.creatures, who shock tho sophisticated
and enlighten youth. The movement
should by all means go forward to com
• .pletion. Alameda street ought to be
made one of the prosperous and respect
able streets of Los Angeles throughout
its whole length.

THE ILLUSTRATED HERALD.
For some days past canvassers have
been out soliciting advertisements for
the Illustrated Herald Annual. This
will be the twelfth issue of this invalua
ble publication, which has done so much
to develop Los Angeles and Southern
California. Our agents have met a most
gratifying success, and they will remain
in the field until it ie time to put the
work to press.
A DOUBLED WAR POSSIBILITY.
It is not, perhaps, an important mat
ter, but it was the utterance of the Em
peror Francis Joseph, of Austria, and
not of the Emperor William, of Ger
many, the latter saying it as our
esteemed contemporary, the Express,
put it, which created the panic on the
European bourses the other day. The
emperor of Austria remarked that the
famine in Russia intensified the danger
of war. There are two interpretations
to this remark. The first is that it is
good time, when your enemy is weak
ened by hunger, to fall upon and, to
employ a vulgar but forcible American
ism, "Lick the stuffing out of him."
The second theory is that the Emperor
Francis Joseph thought that hungry
Russia, looking upon the abundantly
supplied grain fields of the south and the
west of Europe, considers it a good idea
to forage on her neighbors. There is
great force in both of these views. Each
of them is so plausible that the chances
Of war are exactly doubled from
the empeior of Austria's point of
view; and it is quite natural, in conse
quence, that stocks should fall on every
bourse of the old world. The attitude
of the Austrian emperor in this matter
is somewhat intensified by the fact that
Monsieur de BlowiU, for years the Paris
correspondent of the Loudon Times, in
an article in a magazine that created a
sensation, said that the next European
war would break out on the death of
Francis Joseph. The head of the house
of Hapsburg seems to prefer being in
the next grand European scrap. It is
absolutely a little more dignified to ride
the whirlwind and direct the storm than
to be what Mantilini calls "a dem'd
moist, unpleasant body," yclept a
corpse, even though enclosed in the
gorgeous sarcophagus which will
undoubtedly be accorded to the de
scendants of the chiefs of the old
Holy Roman empire. Yet, after specu
lating as we may, we shall see what we
shall see.
Tiikric is a strong movement in all the
conventions of late, outside of those of
the Democratic and Republican parties,
to insist upon the equality in social
purity of men and women. The old na
tional parties do not indulge in these
vagaries because Democratic voters know
they are pure and need no reformation,
while the Republicans entertain an hal
lucination of the same kind. Witheome
agnostics there is a good deal of doubt
about the equal purity of the sexes, and
these people even go so far as to believe
that some of these movements really aim
to make women as apocryphal as to
chastity as some men are supposed to
be. In other words, that the proposi
tion is to level down instead of leveling
up. What a striking revolution in cer
tain habits of people of both eexes a de
mand for equality in social purity would
effect? And yet this seems to be about
the significance of the new evangel.
It is amusing tosee Republican papers
put down New York as a doubtful state
in their ratiocinations of the electoral
vote at the next presidential election.
This too, in the face of the late contest
in that state, in which a majority of 48,
--000 was rolled up for the Democratic
candidate for governor. Whea it is
taken into account that the city of New-
York gave Flower some 20,000 less than
its normal Democratic majority, and
that the bucolic counties scaled down
their Republican majority about that
number of votes, it is an appalling spec
tacle to see any man so devoid of com
mon sense as to seriously look upon New
York as anything other than a dead
sure state for the next Democratic pres
idential nominee.
The Hkrai.d has been particularly
considerate in discussing the San Diego
bank failure, and yet oue of the papers
of that city is' so disregardful of the
truth as to insist that its treatment of
that unfortunate event has been harsh
and unfriendly. If we should say, as
we now say, that we sincerely regret
that a crisis should have arisen in San
Diego's linancial affairs that impelled
the banks of Loa Angeles to come to its
rescue, by sending down a very large
amount of coin to help it out, the Sun
would claim that we were bristling with
hostility to our neighbor.
Calikoknia horses came to the front
in great style yesterday, smashing rec
ords beyond precedent. Charley Dur
fee's Los Angeles wonder McKinney

Stockton; while, on the same track,
Marvin drove Palo Alto in 2 :08? 4 '. Cal
ifornia is destined to be the home of
both the blood and trotting horse, and
considering the strength of her stables
numerically—the interest being yet in
itß infancy—Los Angeles promises to be
soon at the head of the Pacific coast
equine procession.
The great tide of improvement that
is surging to a moat gratifying head in
Southern California juat now is accentu
ated by a sale of six hundred and forty
acres yesterday, which lie between the

$200 an acre, including water power.

A sign of prosperity exists in Los An

AMUSEMENTS.
The Columbia Opera company will un
doubtedly be greeted by a large and fash
ionable audience at tbe Los Angeles the
ater tonight. A strong cast of artists
will appear in the opening opera, II
Trovatore, and it is claimed that this
grand tragic opera of Verdi—that im
mortal story of love, hate, jealousy and
revenge—will receive a masterly inter
pretration by the personnel of the Co
lumbia Opera company. Among those
who will appear on the opening night in
the leading roles are Mile. Nina Bertini,
Mmc Garso-Dely, William Foran,
Sig Perotti, Josef Rubo and others.
These artists have all won their laurels
in the east and in the leading theaters
of Europe, and much may be expected
from the presentment of thia opera, as
the San Francisco Call, in speaking of
its production in that city, said in un
qualified terms: "The Columbia Opera
company has given us the beat produc
tion of il Trovatore that has been heard
in this city for fifteen years. The or
chestra and chorus, under the direction
ol Musical Director Hirschbach, are
very effective, while the costumes ar3
said to be magnificent. On Thursday
night Mascagni's wonderful prize opera,
Cavalleria Rusticana, which haß created
such a furore in Europe, and which ia
now the reigning success at the Casino
theater, New York, will be given, to
gether with the miserere scene from
Trovatore. On Friday night Gounod's
masterpiece, Faust, will be given with
a strong cast. At the Saturday matinee
Flotow's melodious opera Martha will
be given, and on Saturday night Caval
leria Rusticana will be repeated. The
Columbia Opera company is a new grand
opera organization, but it is made up of
artists who have achieved world wide
reputations, and there is nodoubt, judg
ing from the favorable criticism which
the company has received, that it will
prove a potent attraction to all opera
goers in Los Angelei,

EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY.
(inventor Markham Grants Two Par
dons and Refuses Three Others.
Sackamento, Cal., Nov. 17.—Governor
Markham today pardoned Lottie Fritz,
convicted of petit larceny in San Fran
cisco in September last, and sentenced
to six months' imprisonment. In grant
ing the pardon the governor says it ap
peared to him that she is an honest,
virtuous woman, who has been ill-used
by her husband. Judge VVonley, Dr.
Yemans and other reputable citizens
asked for her pardon. She is about to
become a mother.
The governor also pardoned Giovanni
Bianohi, alias Jack Ozzem, convicted of
burglary in San Francisco in 1886, and
sentenced to two years' imprisonment,
Biancbi's term expired in 1887.He was a
minor when convicted, and since his re- j
ieaee has led a blameless, industrious
life in Napa. The pardon was granted
now, simply to restore him his rights of
citizenship.
The application of Julius Portelli,
convicted in San Francisco in 188{), of
murder, was refused. The governor In
quired carefully into all the facts and
arrived at the conclusion that there was
no merit in the application.
Tbe same course was taken on the ap
plication of M. E. Buckmann, convicted
in Monterev, in October, 18K4, of mur
dering his lather ; also on the applica- ;
tions of W. McConnell of Los Angeles,
burglary, and James O'Brien of San
Francisco, robbery.
[Ujall these cases Governor Markham
fjoes into the details of the trials and
the evidence brought out, and states
that in the future he will give his rea
sons for- refusing, as well as for grant
ing pardons.
