A Prospecting Tonr, Nt. 6, by Oar
Special Correspondent.
Editor of Tbi ExTinraisic:
Los Angeles. Cal , Feb. 21, '89.
The great state of Calilornia Is a world
within ite-lf, probably no other country
has within an equal area, such a diversity
of climate, soil and productive capacity.
Bountiful resources In rich m'nes, mighty
forests, slock and grain farniB, vegetable
and flower gardens, liopieal and decidu
ous fruits. The scenery Is grand, the cli
mate delightful. Snow is seen on tue
mountain tops over half the year, while in
the valleys there is perpetual spring and
summer. Between these two extremes
Here are all shades of lentperniure.
Summer and winter seasons differ but
little. Peoplu wear the same cloihing the
year round and sleep under the same
blanket" in July and January. Sle p like
children and rise in tho morning fresh
and vigorous, the nights are always cool
tne days warm and sunny. The. sun has
smiled upou us twenty days out of twen'jt
one sineo our arrival on the golden shores.
There are usually from twenty to thirtv
days of rain during the winter mouths and
the average Tain fall is about stxtoen
inches, but it never rains here in the Bum
summer, and this is well, lor they could
not be successful In curing raisins und
euro Inn on ninny other kinds of business
tint requires perpetual sunshine, pro
ducts representing a large amount of
wealth and bringing Into this state a large
revenue. The descriptions I have read ot
California are not overdrawn, it Is even
more helitltilul and wonderful even than 1
had pictured ill my linmaginution. The
laet that the population in this stnto has
doubled since 1880, proves its many ad
vantages and attractions. The "boom" has
gone with the speculators and rent estate
gamblers, and those who have come to
huild "homes" and develop the natural
resources have come to stay. II w Cali
lornia grows upon people und entwines
linelflu their affeclious Is testified to by
every one w ho has spent any length of
time in the country. Everyone who
comes to dwell here may live undei his
own vine and fig tree. And the ease with
which delightful home surroundings may
be secured in this fuvored land and enjoy
ed twelve months in the year, is a magnet
of no mean power in drawing people to
this winterless sliinate In the cities are
large mansions in the midst ol spacious
grounds, with walks and drives winding
through floral beauty and hid beneath
bending foliage, the whole adorned with
plants and shrubs Is made a very Eden of
loveliness, and at a moderate expense com
pared with what it would cost where tho
atmosphere is cold and the growth less
profuse. But small Inexpensive cottages
of neat design will make a home no less
charming, nature is as kind to the poor as
those ot larger means, and a cottage borne
may here be made a veritable bower of
content and happiness. '
LosAngeies the"Cily of the Angels" is
called ih strawberries and cream of tho
Golden State, its climate is a'mospheric
perfection, a city of groves and gardens,
fruits and flowers, "Where eveiy prospect
pleases and only man is vile." There are
large orange orchards and vineyards with
in the city limit. The lofty Sierra Matlrie
range of mountains north presents sink
ing sublime scenery while the I in mens
plains stretching away to the southward,
diversified bv rolling grass-covered hills
and lesser mountain ranges. Orchards,
vineyardaand attractive homes, around
which perpetual flowers bloom and the
air as pure as the breath of Innocence
Orange (roes bending beneath their bur
den, rebuke us by their fruitfulness,or lead
us into temptation of taking that which
is not ours. Thousands of acres in lem
ons, peaches, pears, prunes apricots, nec
tarine plums, pomogranlis, and all kinds
of berries. Here are many kinds of nuU,
almonds, pecan, and English walnut trees,
said to be very profitable. There Is a sup.
ply ot fresh vegetable the table all the
year round. On the market I notice, peas,
beans, tuttice, cauliflower and strawber
ries. We were passing along one of the
avenues yesterday with a slect company
admiring the great beauty aud variety ol
flowers, when a girl with a face like
spring ctme nut ol a bower and gave each
of us a bouquet. We thought this a very
nice act of kindness to do strangers and
were much delighted (I mean with the
flowers). How old she is has nothing to
do with the nnrative, (this is not a love
story), bull will say she was much ad
mired by tho one that has the pleasure ol
making these remarks. For the lover ol
horticullnre and One homes a grander
sight than Is here presented could not be
found. The graceful pepper with spread
log bough and trembling leaf vibrating
with every motion of butterfly's wing In
vites to grateful shades and calm reflection.
The orange ereniilal in its loveliness,
trev of romance in every age and In all
climes, emblem of uuily and concord of
romance and wealth. The maidem dreams
of its blossoms that shall glorify her bridal
wreath; the young man of the prortts thai
accrue from the golden fi disenabling him
to establish his home in comfort and sup
ply his warns with ease. Then there is
the Olive Herald ol peace and reminder
of the mount l swn (1 memory; the lily
with white wings, the radiant rose, the
morn i ni: glories maiding In the passing
breeze, the foothills fresh and vernal
where wild flowers peep from for.y cov
erts. Ships at se in the distance, others
anchored in th hsrlair. All nature as
glad as a song of Joy 'n the morning. All
earth and sea and air and sky conspire to
make this midwinter day as charming as
the mofct perfect June day In Ohio. Speak

Washington Letter.
' From our togular Correspondent. v.,'
Washington, Feb'y 23, 1889. !
Mr. A. P. Edgerion, who Cleveland re.
moved from the Civil Service Commis.
sion in order to appoint Mr. Thompson,
of South Carolina, has written an. open
letter to Cleveland and which has been
enjoyed here this week. Of course, Mr.
Edgerton Is a "sore head," and had he
not been removed from office would never
have publicly expressed such opinions,
but that does not mar tho enjoyment
which the flnying lie gives Mr. Cleclind
imparts to many people hereabouts, par
ticularly Deinia rats in the Sam Randall
stripe The lack of space prevents my
sending the entire let'er. but the followiug
opinion of a Democratic Piesldent by a
Democrat Is ton good to be lout: "Mr
President, with due courtesy to the high
ofilce you hold, allow nie to say that you
are a very peculiar man, a positive man.
positively wrong or positively right, and
therefore, tin unsafe man to trust; and
that element In your characier, I believe,
led to your defeat. You are a mnn who
would not let your reul friends udinonish
you with fret dom and conflJenee, and as
a result you have suffered for the waul of
friends, aud your wrecked greatness has
discoved that there is no true success in
lite without the power and blessing of
friendship You have been taught that
g-eal men wiib destinies are not always
wise, except in their own conceit."
Business in Congress is getting luto a
terrible muddle these last days of the sea
slon and Utile else is likely to be accom
plished, in fact it will not be surprising
if one or two of the regular appropriation
hills fail lo get through.
The Omnibus Territorial bill has at last
passed, und has now gone to the Presi
dent. The people of Son'h Dakota under
this act, will on May 14tli,.v..to upon the
adoption of the Sioux Falls Constitution;
also the location of the capital. On Ihe
same date the citl.i7.ens of Noth Dakota,
Montana und Washington may vote for
delegates lo constitutional c inventions
and for State officers. On the first Tues
day in October the people may vole upon
the constitutions proposed by the conven
tions, and if adopied, alter the President's
proclamation to that effect, the Goverunis
of each may order an election of members
to the legislature aud of Representatives
in Congress. The legislature may meet
and elect two Senators each, in time to
take iheir seats at the beginning of the
first regular session of the Fifty fimt Con
gress, at which time the Representatives
shall also be admitted to seats.
All hope of any legislation at this ses
sion looking toward a settlement of the
indebtedness ol the Pacific Coast rsilrords
to ihe Government, has been abandoned,
and Senator Stewart has offered a resolu
tion authorizing the Stnaie committee
having the matter Iq chsrgeo sit during
the recess. It seems to bo an impossibil
ity for Congress to make these wealthy
0 r "'rations pay Uncle Sain what they
owe him.
I he Direct-tax bill, ader muny tips and
downs, has passed Congress, and is now
In the bands of Ihe President Owing to
the delay in agreeing to toe conterence
report, which was Meinlngly intentional,
many people believe that the measure Is
to get what Is known as s pocket veto,
that is, it nisy fail to receive the Presl
dent's signature before the 4th of March,
which would effectually kill it Others
believe that he will veto It and take the
occasion to say n few farewell words po.
