LETTER FROM SOLEDAD.
PHIZANO, Los Angeles County, 1
October, 17th, 1878. /
Editok Herald:—Phlxano In v
new name for "Soledad." There being
two places already in the Stute l>y the
latter name, it became necessary to
seek a new one for this. It owes its
paternity to Bride Grimes, of Ven
tura, and is located in "Soledad Pass"
12 miles from its commencement at
the Desert, and 9 miles from its ter
mination at Lang's.
Where I'hizmio Is.
It is in Los Angeles county >>~ miles
from Los Angeles by wagon roail, and
05 from Ventura. This "Pass" forms
the easiest route of communication
between the Desert and the coast. All
the CetTO Gordo teams now pass
through it on their way from the
mines to Los Angeles. There are no
objectionable hills to overcome, and
only occasional sandy places in the
dry river bed, that prove troublesome
at all. Very little timber is found in
the immediate pass, but the anoyos
that lead in from behind mountain
sneers, are said to be furnished with
pine of good quality, rows of which
can be seen, also, on the crests of the
mountains. The mountains are gener
ally composed of granite, which iti
many instances has decayed to such
an extent as to furnish soil sufficient
to cover them deeply in places, often
to their very tops. Considerable clay
is mingled" with this soil, and sage,
grease wood, and sometimes cedar
take root and grow in scattered
bunches clear up to (heir summits.
"Mount Gleason" is the highest point.
It is 6,70(1 feet above the sea, ami 4,800
feet above the Phizano. There is
A Ntrenm of Fine Wnter
Issuing from springs above, and at
this point, that supplies most ofthe
pass below. Around these springs is
a beautiful cienega with trees and
vines, so rarely found in this climate,
that the day is not distant when it will
be sought by invalids, whose enerva
ted systems'fail to receive benefit from
the moist atmosphere of the coast.
Fogs seldom reach here—but they
sometimes rest on the top of Mount
(lleason or scud along the whole range,
growing thinner and lighter as they
pass on toward the desert. Average
mean temperature for September 71°
—first half of October 08°. Prevailing
winds from the west. No rain—lirst
frost on the morning of the loth inst.
The Town of l'hlzano.
This is but a small town yet, not
more than lo buildings in all, many
of which are unoccupied. A few
years since there was great excite
ment about mines near here, and a
miner's town of about 1,000 inhabit
ants sprung into existence under the
magic influence of gold and silver.
A few fragments of chimneys, and a
rank growth of weeds, are all that
mark the site of "Ravena." Two idle
uuartz mills.in good repair, are still
standing a short distance below, but
the pass so recently alive with active
business, has lapsed into a state of re
pose and silence so profound, that it
may justly cling to its appropriate
name of "Soledad Pass." The only
variation consists in the travel through
it, not from industries of its own.
Fceliug an interest in your new paper
which really rivals those of our old
est cities, I have spent an hour in giv
ing you a practical description of a
liortion of your county, Which may
>c new to some of your readers.
' A Scrsc'riukr.
The present success and prosperous
development of the grape growing bu
siness in California, are of great im
portance to the people of this State,
and to the nation at large. In other
countries, where the vine is extensive
ly cultivated, an average crop insures
prosperity. Not so, however, in Cali
fornia. There, where a plenteous vint
age is the rule and not the exception,
the business languishes, and the labor
er is unrewarded. For this there must
be a cause, and this cause should be
Under the existing laws concerning
stills, and the making of spirits, the
extensive cultivation of the grape can
not prove .remunerative. The great
bulk of the grape crop must be con
verted into wine or brandy. It cannot
be converted into food for mankind, or
fed to animals and changed into meat.
Wine will not become a popular
beverage, unless it be good ami cheap.
Good wine cannot be made and sold at
a low price, unless the inferior grapes,
the pomice, the lees and bad wines of
the vintage can be profitably convert
ed into brandy.
There is no sound reason why the
same tax should be assessed upon a
gallon of grape brandy made, as it is,
out of materials that have no value,
and which cannot be made to answer
any other beneficial purpose, as is as
sessed upon a gallon of grain spirits,
which is made out of materials that
are valuable, and the conversion of
which into spirits, tends directly to in
crease the price of bread and meal
throughout the country.
Let the grape growers of California
make one united prayer to Congress
for the removal of the tax upon grape
brandy, and if successful, they may
not be forced to root up their vines and
devote their vineyard land to other
If Congress desires the cultivation
of the grape for wine-making purposes,
it must abolish the tax upon grape
brandy, or its desires will not be real
