For some days paßt canvaasers have been out soliciting advertisements for the Ixlustratsd Herald Annual. Thia will be the twelfth issue of this invalua ble publication, which has done so much to develop Los Ancreles and Southern California. Our agents have met a most gratifying success, and they will remain In the field until it is time to put the work to press. Wkhave had some north winds lately. The ill wind that blows good to nobody is around, and is making a large sized nuisance of itself. Shall we have a war with Chile? Let na hope not. When the United States geta in motion one would wish it to strike a foeman worthy of ita steel. The orange crop of Southern Califor nia thia year will be excellent in qual ity but somewhat deficient in quantity. Riverside appears to have suffered a little during the past two or three days. The Wright irrigation law, approved by the supreme court, is doing a world of good for California, and particularly for Southern California. The develop ment of our water resources is the open sesame of prosperity. Very shortly Loa Angelea will enter* tertain a quite distinguished railway party. Mr. Huntington will be in the roster. Then there will Mr. Peabody. Mr. Richard Kerens and the Terminal crowd will also be on hand. As a mat ter of fact the city of Loa Angeles is specially notable in all lines of develop ment of late. Cheap fuel is our great need and the Salt Lake connection will assure it to us. Thicks is an element of comedy about the Chilean situation. Mr. James G. Blame has been ordinarily looked upon as DTsraeli waa regarded in Great Brit ain. In other words, he was supposed to be the great exemplar of Jingoism. The curious thing about Blame ia that he does not seem to come up to the pro nuueiamento. He is about the tamest secretary of state the United States iia,s ever had. THBBB has been just one drouth in Los Angeles county since 187*1. During that time there have been four or five dry yearß in the state of New York. New York and Brooklyn have suffered greatly from lack of water during the current year. The latter city very nearly endured a water famine within the last two weeks. Southern California has really been exceptionally favored for a gteat while past. The suicide of Mr. Bert MaeGregor is one of those melancholy things that sur prise one. This young gentleman was bright and gifted. He had every reason, apparently, to look for a loug and happy life. How such a young man, with san guine prospects of happiness aud pros perity, should develop such a morbid vagary, puzzles one. For quite a while he was ou the stall' of the HSHALD and his special talents were much appreci ated in this office. Ybstebday afternoon a gentle rain started in on the coa.st. It began at Santa Monica about o'clock aud de veloped a pronounced drizzle in Lo-j An geles about an hour later. The barom eter has shown indications of rain for several days past. The precipitation has been traveling down the coast, aud it looks a3 it we are about to get a good downpour. The best seasons ever known in California have been when the rains started between Cnristmas and New Years. It is an auspicious omen. This Hkbald has frequently sug gested that the state of California and the government of the United States should take precautions to protect our wine interests. It is very disagreeable to know that the French wine makers are employing every chicane known to tbe trade to knock out the honest Cali fornia wines. The state of California, to begin with, ought to legislate in the interest of the pure wines of this sec THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 28, 1891. tion. The United States ought to sup plement this legislation. Dishonest labels should be repudiated, and heavy penalties should be imposed on any person who sophisticates California wines. The wonder is that Californians have been so negligent on a point in which such an essential interest of the section is involved. GOOD NEWS FOR SANTA MONICA. On Saturday the difficulties between Senator Jones, Col. R. S. Baker and the Southern Pacific railway were finally ad justed to the satisfaction of all the par ties concerned. The right of way along the bluff in front of Santa Monica has been conceded, and the Southern Pacific will undoubtedly shortly begin work on an extensive scale. The coast road will come down by the Malibu and other coast ranches. This will dispense, for all purposes of travel, with the San Fer nando tunnel, and traffic will follow travel. In all probability the coast road will be completed inside of a year. This will give Southern California the most charming route to San Francisco con ceivable. In addition to improving the facilities of travel the completion of this road will develop a section of coun try that has not heretofore come exten sively under the notice of the public. On the Malibu ranch there aro twenty two miles of ocean front that embrace four or five thousand acres of ex cellent land with good water rights. It is particularly desirable that there should be a symmetrical development of the territory contributory to Los Auge les. The time has come when the ranchos San Vicente y Santa Monica, La Ballona, Los Bueyes, and a half a dozen others, should be divided. Tbe building of the coast road of the South ern Pacific will undoubtedly bring about this segregation of property interests. There ought to be ten thousand people between the Palms and Malibu ranch, and unquestionably will be with tho advent of thia new railway. Whether a great commercial point will grow up at Santa Monica cation ia a matter for curious speculation. There is no rea son why it should not. Point Dume" is a promontory which gives moat in viting prospects for the creation of a harbor. When the south ern Pacific starts in in earnest to develop any point essential to ita sys tem it moves with great energy. All the indications point to great prosperity for Santa Monica. Senator John P. Jones, who has large property interests there, haa probably made up his mind to do all he can for tho place. Jones and the Southern Pacific railway are a heavy team. Between Santa Monica and New Orleans ia the shortest stretch of railway in American territory con necting Atlantic and Pacific porta. This means a great deal for our charming little city by the sea. There is to rea son why a notably commercial point should not grow up in the lee of Point Dume, while a great and attractive wa tering place ought to cover the bluffs in front of Santa Monica proper. The people of Santa Monica have waited a long time for their due meed of prosper ity, and the time seema'to have arrived when they will realize expectations long deferred. The Irrigation Age is a paper with of fices in Salt Lake, Denver and San Fran cisco. It is devoted to the reclamation of arid lands, and to the intelligent ex ploitation of a country which lacks the copious of the eastern Btatea. In a recent issue this journal says, apro pos of Southern California: "About four years ago, after a phenomenal boom, land values in about one-half of the great state of California went down with a crash, and many a pocket : book was bruised or killed outright by the flying debris. During the past few months the world has witnessed a resur rection in California almost as wonder ful as the historic boom and the subse quent collapse. The California editor of Tho Age, who was the historian of the former boom, has followed the later developments faithfully in these col umns. He has pointed out the funda mental difference between the old boom and the new,and shown that the new one rests upon the solid foundation of irrigation. "Land values are risine again in the southern half of California. Money and people are flowing back again into the channels from which the riotous tideof speculation receded but three or four years ago. The rich smile of pros perity plays again ou the beautiful face of the landscape. The fact is that Cali fornia took her medicine, learned her lesson and is now getting the benefit of it. She learned that no enterprise is worthy to prosper which does not pro duce something useful to mankind. She learned that no house could stand un less grounded on a Btire footing, but that with a good foundation the stateliest edifices could be builded. And so, with vivid recollections of her former experi ence, with a lively appreciation of her soil and climate, and with a full knowl edge ol the fructifying power of irriga tion, she presses forward to new con quests, over a sure pathway. The cultivated area of tha state is steadily increasing, and now thousands are mak ing new homes as the sage brush falls back before the garden and the orchard. "We do not know of any country that has shown such recuperative power as California. With all her friends we re joice in her new prosperity, but our present purpose is to hold her up as an example for the rest of the arid region. What California is doing in her resur rection days, the inter-mountain coun try, and much of the region east of the Rockies, can also do in large measure. California is showing them every day the advantages of colony life, of diversi fied production, of the profit of fruit culture, of the wisdom of 'the little farm well tilled.' She is also showing them how much better life is worth living in a pretty house which stands in the midst of trees and flowers. About three-quarters of tbe charm of Cali fornia may be put down to the good taste of its inhabitants. Other regions share with her, in a measure, the bless ings of good soil and rare climate. But they can sit at her feet and learn how to make tbe most of them, both from the commercial and the esthetic stand points." It looks very much as if Governor David Bennett Hill is forging to tbe front as the next Democratic candidate for president. Mr. Murat Halstead, formerly of the Cincinnati Commercial- Gazette, and now of some obscure New York paper, has had himself inter viewed, and says that Mr. Rosweli P. Flower, and not Mr. Hill, will be the Democratic candidate. Mr. Halstead does not run the Democratic party. Governor Flower will doubtless find a reasonable degree of activity in the re sponsible functiona of the gubernatorial office of the Empire state. Senator Hill will come to the front in good form. As a matter of fact, Mr. Hill steadily gains with Democrats. Hie speech on the iasues of 18;)2 ia absolutely the most masterly presentment of the questions of the day and hour that any public man has acquitted himself of for a long while paat. It was a voluminous document, but it was also decidedly luminous. David Bennett Hill is making hia mark, strong and broad, and he looks like a winnei. Our eateemed contemporary, the Ex press, has a reasonable degree of gall. In its issue of Saturday it says : It requires no little assurance on the part of a Democratic organ to name Da vid Bennett Hill as comparable to Ho ratio Seymour, who. whatever his faults, was a man of unsullied honor. Hill is politically oue of the most unscrupulous and tricky men that ever rose to promi nence in any state. At present he is the ringleader in an effort to fraudulently set aside the election of certain Repub lican members of the Now York senate. His action in this respect ia character istic of the man. Horatio Seymour was the worst abused man in America, with the exception of Titden, till he died. Mr. Hill gets the same compliment that Seymour and Tilden got in their time. He ie abused heavily because he ia a strong man. The Republican party wastes no ammu nition on dead ducks, , IN SOCIETY. This evening the pupils of the West Vernon public school will give a Christ mas entertainment at the school. The entertainment will consist of songs and recitations, and likewise of a recitation prize contest. The friends of the pupils have been cordially invited to attend. The many friends of Mrs. G. W. Reese and her son Shirley will be glad to know that they have returned and are at pres ent visiting her daughter, Mrs. H. H. Cox, at 117 West Pico atreet. »*# Mr. and Mrs. D. Gridley gave a de lightful reception Christmas eveniug at their residence, 135 South Olive street, and most pleasantly entertained the members of the Hoyle club. After music and songs the party proceeded to the dining room, which was beautifully decorated, and in come respecta very novel, especially the large chrysanthe mums at the end of the table, which, from every point of view, were tastefully arranged, to engage in progressive euchre, whi'jh entertained until 11:30, at which hour Mrs. Steele and Mr. Wannop decatred winners of the first prize, while Miss Percival aud Mr. Gresa received the "boobies." An ex quisite lunch waa served. Those pres ent were Mr. and Mrs. Hicks, Dr. and Mrs. McDonald, -Mr. and Mrs. Cunning ham, Mrs. Steele, Mrs. Allen, Mißß Mead, Miss Sterling, Miss Percival, Messrs. Chase, Mead, Irving, Wannop, McDonald, Gress, Phelps and Bradshaw. About ITafilacer,. In placing your furnace in your new house, always remember that lateral pipes never give out much heat. The hot air must invariably ascend to pro duce a current, and therefore we see very often a register in the third story giving out splendid heat, when in the extension library, where warmth is par ticularly desired, the air of the room is hardly affected at all. In a large coun try house it would really be better to have two small furnaces rather than one large one. Less coal would be used to more purpose, and they would not be much more troublesome to tend than ia one. But if you have two, do not make the mistake of putting them side by side, as was done in a very large house near New York. This simply in tensified the heat in the same part of the house without carrying it into the wings, where it was chiefly needed. —New York Tribune. A story is told of the thrilling ex perience of a veteran aeronaut with a bald eaglo and a Connecticut constable. During a recent ascension, when at a height of 3,000 feet, the balloonist was attacked by the eagle. A desperate fight ensued, which resulted in the eagle being killed. Half fainting, the aeronaut descended to terra firma. When he had recovered he hunted for and found the dead bird. While he was examining his prize the constable came along and ar rested him for killing the bird, for which offense, he claimed, a fine of $o0 is im posed. The aeronaut, it is related, had more difficulty in escaping punish ment than he had in killing the bird.— Boston Journal. Weighing Mosquitoes. It is told of ix great author that bo was wont to amuse himself by jumping over a chair. But I have a correspondent who, as the following shows, amuses himself by weighing mosquitoes: "1 have recently weighed some mos quitoes of this locality on a sensitive balance. The feverage weight of ono mosquito was 1.27 milligrams—that it would take 860,000 to weigh a pound. "Mosquitoes which had filled them selves with human blood wore found to weigh about three times as much as others, sho wing that they had swallowed twice their weight in blood."—Boston Globe.

Gossip About Plays and Flayers-Recent Productions at the 'Frisco Theaters. Comic Opera, Melodrama and Comedy. San* Francisco, Dec. 24,1891. I was very much surprised at an ar ticle which appeared in one the Los An gelea dailies recently, reflecting on a young actress. Ruby Illidge. Why this little woman should have been made the subject of attack I am utterly at a loss to understand. She is one of the sweet est and most talented girls I have ever met, and I desire to correct some of the misstatementa which are made. In stead of being a raw amateur of one year'e experience, Miss Ulidge made her first appearance on the stage when only 3 years of age and has had an almost continuous stage experience since, for Beveral years playing child's parts at the various thea ters here. Sho played Little Eva in Uncle Tom's Cabin for quite an extended period. In fact, she was in Los Angeles less than two years ago as a member of the Great Metropolis company. Her father is connected with the Tivoli, and she joined the Sullivan-Harrißon combi nation with the consent of her parents. She resided with them before going to Los Angelea with that company and did after her return up to the time of the company leaving for the east today. Furthermore, she possesses decided abil ity and will surely distinguish herself some day. These are the facte of the case, and it would have been well if tho writer and publishers of the sensational article referred to had taken some pains to get at tho truth of the matter before committing Buch an outrage against decency and gentlemanly cour tesy. lam glad that you will have an op portunity of seeing Willard. He ia now at the Baldwin, with The Middleman. I consider him one of the finest actors I have ever seen. He ia very different from the general run, aa he ie not a bit etagey or theatrical, and resorts to no tricks to win applause. He ia eimple and natural, and he ia an artist to his finger-tips. Every look, every gesture, every intonation of the voice ie just as it should be. He never slighta his work for an instant, and gives everything its full and true valne. He has a splendid role in The Mid dleman, that of Cyrus Blenkarn, the old potter, a studious, unworldly chap, heart and soul absorbed in his experiments and in his children. The other characters are interesting, and there is a good deal of human nature displayed. Marie Burroughs as Mary, hia daughter, almoat ahares honors with him. She ia aweetly dignified and strong. Leffie Pilbury, who is a daugh ter of Lydia Thompson, by the way, plays her sister, and is a jolly, vivacious soubrette. Royce Carleton plays the Middleman, the owner of the Tetlow porcelain works, and Louis Massen his son, F. H. Tyler, whom you will remem ber as a member of the Palmer company which visited Los Angelea a year ago last summer, ia delightful as Jeßse Pegg, a British workman. The other charac ters are in good hands and tho stage set tings are perfect. The Devil's Auction is at the Califor nia. It is an old spectacle, with rather good scenery, a ballet, and some excel lent specialties. It aeema rather tame after such a gorgeous extravaganza aa Sindbad, but it is a fair average specimen of its class. John P. Kelley is at the Bush-Street with U and I. it ia a funny concoction and is made very entertaining through the eflbrts of a company of clever peo ple. John P. Kelly is the best Irish comedian on the stage. His manner is inimitable and his brogue is perfect. A good deal of his work ia purely legiti mate comedy, but of course in a piece of the kind much of it is broad farce. And he is very, very funny, Dutch Daly plays Gua Williams's old part. He makes his greatest hit with iiia concertina specialty, which is really marvelous. Imagine a man imitating on that much-abused instrument the grand notes of a church organ or the chimes of New York's Trinity. But he does it, and finely. Fiorrie West 18 a very jolly English BOUbrette, and little Aimee Angelea is a wonderful child dancer. The remainder of the company are good, and the piece is enjoyable. The Christmas production at the Al cazar is a piece of a spectacular nature entitled Afra. The scene ia laid in the Alpine Tyrol. It ia an adaptation from the German, made lor Augustine Daly some years ago, but which he never produced. Ethel Brandon is playing the part originally intended for Ada Kehan: Frank Burrill's New York Opera Com ique company is catching on at the Or plieum. They give really excellent per formances, for it is a tine company. They are giving The Mikado this week. Charles H. Drew ie the Koko, and there is none better in the country. George Olmi and Henry Hallman, late of the New York Casino, play Pooh-Bah and Nunki-Pooh respectively. Charles Flint is a fine Mikado, Tellula Evans is the Yum-Yum and Bebe Viniug, one of the brightest sonbrettes in existence, is the I'itti-Sing. The company ia building up a fine clientele and will, I think, be a success, notwithstanding the hoodoo hanging over the Orpheum. The Island of Zenobar is tlie holiday attraction at the Trvoll. It is a spec tacular production of an adaptation from an old farce. The Illustrious stranger. The scenery and costumeß aic pretty, but the piece is rather dull. The attractions at the San Francisco theaters next week will be: W. T.
