SAN PEDRO.
A Petition to Congress About
the Harbor.
The Chamber of Commerce
Memorializes Congress.
Points From a Document Advocating
More Work.
A Showing Which Ably Sets Forth the
Value of the Harbor—Appropria
tions Already Made—Facts
iv the Case.
The chamber of commerce has pre
pared a memorial to congress regarding
San Pedro harbor, from which the fol
lowing extracts are taken:
To the Honorable the Senate and House of Rep
resentatives ol the United States:
Your memorialists, the chamber of
commerce of the city of Los Angeles,
California, very respectfully and earn
estly represent:
That between the bay of San Francisco
and the bay of San Diego on the Califor
nia coast, a distance of about 600 miles,
there is but one port where any foreign
commerce of consequence has ever been
conducted, and that port is San Pedro
(officially known as Wilmington harbor).
That upon the reports and recom
mendations of go':c.uuient engineer of
ficers over twenty years ago, San Pedro
was selected as the most favorable point
for a harbor between San Francisco and
San Diego, and the first appropriation
to that end was made in 1871 of $200,000.
That whea the work of creating the
harbor was commenced there was a
depth of but 18 inches of water on the
bar at mean low tide.
That as lesult of the work performed
by the government under the direction
of Col. Geo. H. Mendall, U. S. A., Col.
W. H. H. Benytrurd, U. S. A., and other
government engineers, this depth was
increased to 7 feet in 1876, to 10 feet in
1887, to 12}4 in 1890, and at the present
time there are over 14 feet of water on
the bar at mean low tide.
That the rises of tide above mean low
water vary from 2 to 7 feet, and average
about 4)<f feet.
That vessels drawing from 17 to 18>£
feet of water now come to the wharves
at San Pedro and discharge their car
goes, in a thoroughly safe and absolute
ly land-locked harbor.
That nearly all the foreign commerce
at San Pedro is carried in ships of
greater draft than 18 feet, and that all
such ships are still compelled to anchor
in the San Pedro roadstead, and dis
charge and receive their cargoes by
lighter.
That such method of discharge is
very expensive and adds heavily to the
cost to consumers of merchandise, and
is a tax as well upon our ocean com-
merce.
That the work heretofore performed
by the government under the direction
of the engineers in deepening the "inner
harbor," depending largely upon erosion
by confining the ebbing and flowing
tides in a narrow channel, has been suc
cessful beyond all anticipation, and
markedly so when the modest and inter
mittent character of the appropiiations
by congress is considered.
That the total amount appropriated
for this work in twenty years aggregates
$904,000, and that the government has
received back in duties collected at San
Pedro in the last nine yearß alone about
$700,000.
That while the work of bringing San
Pedro harbor to its fullest state of use
fulness is of great local importance to
the rapidly growing agricultural, manu
facturing and commercial interests of
Southern California, it is of Btill greater
importance from a national point of
view. The shortest route between tido
water on the eastern and western shores
of the United States is from Galveston,
Texas, to San Pedro, California, and the
latter on the Pacific is the natural com
plement to the former on the Gulf of
Mexico. The least grade on any trans
continental railway route —a fact of im
mense importance in considering freight
traffic —is between these two points.
San Pedro is the nearest port on the Pa
cific ocean to Salt Lake City and Denver
and their surrounding country, and of
great future importance to the com
merce of these communities by reason
of the light grades between them.
That the construction of the Nicara
gua canal will greatly increase ocean
transportation to and from the Pacific
coaet; and the completion of San Pedro
harbor will be a great assistance to Am
erican shipping interests-.
That the peculiarly favorable location
of San Pedro with reference to trans
continental commerce, and its accessi
bility by reason of the absence of the
heavy grades which must be overcome
before approaching any other harbor on
the Pacific coast, caused its selection as
the first Pacific coast terminus of the
Southern Pacific railroad, which has
constructed extensive wharves there.
The Terminal Railway company has
recently built from the city of Los An
geles to the east shore of San Pedro
harbor, and is at the present time con
structing wharves opposite those of the
Southern Pacific company. Thiß line
will doubtless ultimately form the west
ern terminus of an overland railway
route.
That the inner harbor of San Pedro is
capable of being deepened to twenty
two feet or more at mean low tide,
equivalent to a depth of from twenty
six to thirty feet at high tide, by a con
tinuation of the work of jettying and
dredging.
Your memorialists therefore earnestly
petition your honorable bodies to cause
i report to be made by the engineer
;orps of the United States army of a
'project" for improving the harbor of
?ari Pedro, now known officially as the
larbor of Wilmington, to its fullest de
free of usefulness, together with an esti
nate of the amount of money required
herefor, and that such an apprupria
ion be made by congress as will be ade
mate to the importance and national
character of the undertaking.
In support of their petition your
nemorialiste respectfully present the
innexed statements and statistics, show
ng the character of the work which has
teen done by the government at San
'edro, and the shipping business that
ias been transacted there during a
erm of years.
H. Z. Osborne, Chairman,
Henby T. Hazard,
Wit. H. Workman,
Hbrvey Lindley,
James Cuzneb,
Committee.
A full showing of the imports and ex
erts at the port is then given, which
oncludes with the following note:
It will b« observed that while the
government has expended tdnce it re
ceived California from Mexico, over
forty-five years of time, $904,000 at San
Ptdro, it has taken nearly $700,000 of
tiiat amount back in duties end tonnage
in the past nine yeais. It. will also be
observed that, with the exception of the
"boom" years of 1887 and 1888, the busi
ness of the present year 11891) has been
larger than that ot "any other of its ex
istence.
It is not alone in imports that in
creased harbor facilities would benefit
this community. It would be felt in far
greater degree in the matter of exportß.
I hope and expect to see the time when
ships of deep draft will come alongside
the wharves at San Pedro to discharge
their coal into great coal bunkers, and
general merchandise at the docks, and
receive in return loads of grain from
modern elevators, to be taken to the
east and Europe by way of the Nicaragua
canal. This great enterprise, which will
revolutionize the carrying trade of the
Pacific coast and revivify all our pro
ducing and manufacturing interests,will
be completed possibly in five and cer
tainly in less than ten years.
The date and amount of appropria
tions by congress for the improvement of
San Pedro harbor have been as follows :

the citizens would see that it was kept
sprinkled. On motion of Director McGar
vin it was decided that a commit
tee of three should be appointed
by the chairman to examine the

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1, 1892.
THE PLAYHOUSES.
The Events of the Year at
the Theaters.
A Splendid Showing of Good
Companies.
Attractions at the Opera House and
Los Angeles Theater.
Dates and Companies Which Will Kecall
Many Pleasant Bveuiiias—All
Sorts of Plays and
Players.
The following is a brief resun-e of;the
attractiont that have appeared at the
Grand opera house during the past
twelve months:
December 25, 26, 27 , 23, 30, 31 and
January 2—Emma Juch Opera company
appeared in Les Hugenots, Lohengrin,
L'Africane, Flying Dutchman, Faust,
Trovatore, Carmen and Bohemian Girl.
This engagement was a brilliant success,
both artistically and financially, the
receipts for the season aggregating a
little over $11,500.
On January 5, 6, 7 and B—Mr. Froh
man's company appeared in The Private
Secretary.
January 19, 20 and 21—Patti Rosa in
Margery Daw and Imp.
After this the house was closed until
the week of February 22d, when W. F.
Gilmour's opera company, in The Sea
King, was billed to appear. It will be
remembered this was the time of the
washouts, and the company only got as
far as Mojave, where they were com
pelled to wait, being unable to go either
way. They finally reached this city in
time for the matine6 performance on
Saturday, February 28th, and played to
the capacity of the* theater for the two
performances.
The week of March 2d was filled by
Willard Spencer's Opera company in
Little Tycoon, and Mr. Frederick Warde
in a repertoireof Shakespe«rean dr«mas,
consisting of Henry VIII, Othello,
Macbeth and Merchant of Ven
ice. Mr. Warde at tin-- time
was supported by Mrs. 1). P.
Bowers and Mr. Charles Herman. Tiie
performances were attended by audi
ences that crowded the house. The re
ceipts for the four nights and matinee
amounted to $5057.
March 10 and 11—Kira'.fy's Water
Queen, and March 12, 13, 14 and 15 Mr.
Frohman's company in All the Com
forts of Home, with Henry Miller and
Marie Greenwald in the cast. This
company.yiike Mr. Warde's, did a re
markable business.
March 19, 20 and 21—Denman Thomp
son's company in the Two Sisters, to a
fair business.
The next attraction was Cleveland's
minstrels, on April 23, 24 and 25, fol
lowed by Herrmann, the magician, on
April 30, May 1 and 2.
On May 5, 6, 7, 8 and 7—Miller Bros.'
spectacle, Kajanka, to very meagre busi
ness, and on the following week, May
11, Jarbeau in her time-worn farce
comedy. Starlight.
June 3, 4, 5 and 6—Katie Emmett in
her sensational play, Wait's of New
York.
On June 10,11, 12 and 13-Mr. Froh
man's stock company in Men and
Women; also for their first pruductiou
of Diplomacy. Thiß was without doubt,
the most finished company that had ap
peared in the theater for a long time,
and included such eminent artists as
Frederick De Bellivelle. Frank Mor
daunt, William Morris, R. A. Robarts,
M. A. Kennedav, Sidney Armstrong,
Maude Adams, Odette Tyler and many
others.
On July 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, there appeared
the greatest novelty that has yet been
in this city—the Lilliputians, and al
though every word of the dialogue was
spoken in German, yet the house was
crowded at each performance.
July 16, 17, 18-The Limited Mail.
July 23, 24, 25—Another of W. T. Gil
more's companies in the spectacular
Twelve Temptations.
August 11, 12, 13, 14, 15-Mr. Froh
man'a Lyceum company in The Charity
I all, The Idler, and Old Heads and Young
Hearts. In the company were Herbert
Keleey, E. T. Ratcliffe. W T. Le Moyne,
Charles Walcot, Georgia Cay van, Hen
rietta Grossman, Mrs. Whiffen and
otherß. It is this city's misfortune
that such companies as the latter invari
ably come here in the summer, when
our theater-goers are at the summer :e
--sorts, consequently the business is not
what it would be if they appeared dur
ing the regular seaeon.
August 20, 21, 22—Russell's Come
dians in the City Directory. A very
clever company and did a splendid busi
ness.
Septembers, 4, s—Lewis Morrison in
Faust and Stranglers of Paris.
September 10. 11, 12—The best farce
comedy ever seen in this city, The Djz
zler, with Kate Castleton and Joe Ott in
the cast.
September 14—Sara Bernhardt in La
Tosca. The immortal Sara at $5 a
ticket drew $5200 for the one perform
ance. It was indeed a swell society
event.
September 21. 22, 23—Nat Goodwin in
The G >ld Vline and The Nominee. The
receipts for the three performances
reached $2804.
September 24, 25, 26-Charles Dick
son in Incog. A clever performance but
very poor business.
October 1, 2, 3—Sol Smith Russell, in
his new play Peaceful Valley At every
performance the house was crowded.

business.
November 2, 3, 4-Dr. Bill.
November 10, 11, 12. 13, 14—Fanny

the five nights and matinee reached
$7816.
December 8, 9—Mr. Sanger's com
pany, in Mr. rotter of Texas, with Jeff

LOS ANGELES THEATER.
The past season has been a prosperous
one for the Los Angeles theater, and
Manager Harry C. Wyatt, who is known
as one of the most popular managers
who ever came to the Pacific coast, can
well be proud of the record he has made
during that period. The Los Angeles
theater has been beautified and refur
bished during the year, and is now more
cosy and attractive than ever.
When the statistical man of the
Herald corraled Manager Wyatt yester
day for some facts and figures regarding
the past season he had that gentleman
at a disadvantage. His assistants were
absent with the keys of hie office, and it
was impossible for him to get at his
books and give a corrected and detailed
record of the year's doings at this thea
ter. However, the affable Harry recalled
the following attractions which had ap
peared at the Los Angeles theater to the
delight of its many patrons. The at
tractions recalled are as follows: Clara
Morris, Frank Daniels, Emma Abbott
Opera company. Alcazar Theater com
pany, Musin oncert company, Little
Lord Fauntleroy, Mendelsßohn Concert
company, Bostonian Opera company,
Midnight Bell, Columbia Opera compa
ny, Shenandoah, Skipped by the Light
of the Moon, John L. Sullivan, The
President company, Goodyear, Ellith &
Schilling's minstrels, McKee Rankin,
Daniel Sully, and about twenty other
attractions that Manager Wyatt could
not recall.
Manager Wyatt, in speaking of the
coming season, said that he had secured
a large number of the best attractions
that bad ever been played at the Los
Angeles theater since that popular play
house was built. Quite a number of
changes will be made in further remod
eling and beautifying the theater during
the ensuing year.
