COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SATURDAY MARCH 28, 1874.
CITY AND SUBURBS.
Mr. Wolfonateta is soon to start for
Europe.
There were eight arrests last night
for drunkenness.
The County Court will resume
session again Monday the 30th.
A grand luneli is to bespread by Joe
Williams to-day in honor of his birth
day.
Los Angeles Grange No. 36, Patrons
of Husbandry, will celebrate tbe
"Harvest Feast" at their hall to-day at
2 P. M.
Our Justice's Courts are extremely
quiet. No business of any importance
has been transacted through them for
several days.
The number of passengers by the
Orizaba day before yesterday was un
usually large, many not being able to
procure staterooms at any price.
A great number of the people of An
aheim were in this city yesterday to
act as witnesses in the divorce suit of
Mrs. M. E. Cramer vs. Daniel Cramer.
Sheriff Rowland left for San Fran
cisco day before yesterday, and took
with him four prisoners. Three of the
prisoners were for San Quentin and
one for Stockton.
There is a nuisance in front of the
city offices on Spring street, in the
shape of a discharge drain which
empties into the gutter, creating
"two-and-seventy stenches." Why is
this thus, O conscript fathers?
They are going to have a regular
feast at the Palace saloon to-day, the
proprietors having secured all the good
things the market affords. The lunch
table will be set at 11 o'clock, when
everybody will be invited to dish in.
The scholars of the M. E. Sunday
school of this city are rehearsing
songs and pieces for the concert to be
given one week from to-morrow night.
The concert will be free to all, so a
large attendance is confidently ex
pected.
Wm. W. Jenkins, Government
agent, has reported about seventy
names of parties to the United States
Grand Jury for trespass on Govern
ment lands in Los Angeles county.
He calculates that he has not yet gone
over half the county.
There will be a German dramatic
performance at Turn VereinHall Sun
day night. Two favorite pieces are
announced, which will bring out the
best talents of the dramatic section of
the Germanias, to be followed by the
usual very enjoyable ball.
C. H. Bradley looked unusually
smiling and pleasant yesterday after
noon, just as though he had met with
some extraordinary good fortune. He
told us the new comer is a little girl,
and just about as hearty a one as could
be asked for at one day old.
We are informed that there is quite
an amount of gambling going on in
several of the "quiet" saloons in this
city, and that there is an ordinance
against such employment. If this be
the case, it would be well for our Po
lice to examine into the matter.
A row occurred in a beer saloon on
Main street last night. Some liberal
hearted individual treated "all hands
round," and then refused to pay for
the drinks, whereupon the bar-tender
proceeded to demolish the liberal gen
tleman's countenance and kick him
out. Both parties were arrested; the
bar-tender gave bail for his appear
ance in court and the liberal gentle
man slept in quod.
At the ladies' temperance meeting
held yesterday afternoon, the question
of a total abstinence pledge was taken
up and discussed at some length. On
motion, the pledge was adopted, and
several ladies were appointed to circu
late it about the city. Another meet
ing will be held at Good Templar's
Hall on Wednesday next at .5 p.m.,
when a time will be appointed for a
general prayer meeting.
As may be seen by reference to our
advertising columns, a farewell testi
monial will be tendered by the citi
zens of this city to Samuel \V. Piercy
on Monday evening next at the Turn
ers' Hall. Mr. Piercy's popularity
here will no doubt give him a very full
house, and his well known ability will
make the entertainment well worth
attending. Reserved seats may be
had at Brodrick's bookstore.
Mr. Quinn of El Monte says that
things at Sacramento look very favor
able for the passageof the bill allowing
this county to take immediate action
in turning the San Gabriel river into
its old channel. It is to be hoped that
the citizens of El Monte will succeed
in getting all they want, as the dam
age which has been done by the over
flow of the river is very great, andnf
not attended to will doubtless be even
greater next year.
The Common Council passed the
new ordinance compelling traveling
agents and persons selling by sample
to pay a license of fifteen dollars per
month. These canvassers have for a
loug time past been flocking herefrom
all parts of the country, and while
paying no tax of any kind to benefit
our city have been greatly injuring
the trade of our business men, who do
pay taxes. Those who lire here and
help to improve our city should be
encouraged over those who do us no
good.
We regret very much the action of
the Common Council in revoking Iheir
resolution as to the purchase of horses
to be used on the fire engine. The
horses that are supposed to be used at
present for that purpose are worked in
the city carts all day, and then at
night, tired as they are, have to sleep
with all their harness on for fear they
might be needed to pull the engine to
some fire that may occur. This is ab
solute cruelty; and the only way to
prevent it is to purchase more horses
for the engine. Let us have them, by
all means.
"Jeems Pipes" To-irght.
Stephen Massett at 8 o'clock to
night at the Merced Theatre, opens his
specialties of fun and sentiment, and
we expect to see a full house upon the
occasion. The programme is varied
and interesting, and his comicalities
and imitations will be greatly enjoyed.
The Pacific Coast Wool Growers'
Association, with a capital of 1250,960
in 20,000 shares, has been incorporated
lately at San Francisco. Its objects
are "to raise, purchase and sell siieep
and wool; to lease and purchase sheep
ranges, and to acquire such real estate
and other property as may be neces
sary for the purpose of the associa
tion."
Two carloads of immigrants arrived
at Sacramento March 24th from the
East.
LOOK OUT FOR FIRE.
Munici al Economy.
Los Angeles Fire Company No 1, at
a special meeting held last evening,
passed the following resolutions:
Whereas, The Common Council
of Los Angeles, by its action in refer
ence to the furnishing of Los Angeles
Fire Company No. 1 with horses to
haul their steamer, has exhibited the
weakness of vacillation and finally
laid a higher value on the economy of
horse flfflth than of human vigor and
muscle, therefore be it
Resolved, That this company dis
band at its next monthly meeting
(April 4th, 1874.) unless in the mean
time some action be taken by the
Honorable the City Council (and the
Honorable the Mayor) in regard to
procuring a fit span of horses to haul
to fires our ponderous machine.
Resolved, That we appeal from (he
decision of the Houorable the Council
to the tribunal of their masters, the
People, and ask them to instruct
their servants in their duty in tbe
premises.
Resolved, That a copy of these rv-o
lutions be handed to the different pa
pers of this city for publication.

Favorable mention was made by the
company of the Fire and Water Com
mittee, "Huber, Gerkins, and Val

horses. Therefore we say "Look out
for Fire."
The Spring Street Railroad.
Most of the property on the line of
the Spring Street Railroad has in
creased in value about twenty per
cent, and some tracts even a hundred
per cent. Even at these increased
figures, property along the line of the
road is selling" much more readily
than in any other part of the city. A
few more such enterprises as this rail
road has turned out to be will greatly
increase the value of property all over
the city, and be the means of bringing
many hew citizens here to reside.
An instance has lately come to our
knowledge which is well worth giving
in this connection. Twogentlemen of
considerable means came here from
the East to see if it was worth while
to start a store. They had concluded
that it would not be a paying invest
ment and were on the point of leaving
for elsewhere, when they heard of the
road to be built and concluded to re
main here and open a store.
A few more such instances as this
would probably convince most of our
"chronic croakers" that a little more
energy in our city will be of great
practical benefit. Who will be the
first to start another road? Don't all
of you speak at once!
Spring and Sixth Street Railr;al
The following letter received yester
day by the managing agent of the
street railroad shows that we are ac
tually to have the road:

R. M. Widney, President Spring and •
Sixth Street Railroad Company, Los

LETTER FROM SANTA BARBARA.
Editors Herald : Santa Barbara
is tilled to overflowing witli health And
pleasure-seekers. All the hotels and
boarding-houses are crowded, and
many persons have been turned away
for want of room. It is hoped that our
rain is nearly over, and that the tine
Weather has at last set in. We have
been having very strange weather for
Santa Barbara the greater part of the
Winter.
The election to take place on Mon
day, April 6th, will be the first under
the city charter. There will be a
grand mass meeting of citizens at Lo
bero's Theater, tbe afternoon of March
31st, at 2 o'clcck, for the purpose of
nominating city ofheers for the ensu
ing year. Political matters are already
getting pretty warm, and it is ex
pected there will be a close run be
tween the regular candidates,whoever
they may be, and the independent
ticket.
Building is progressing vigorously
in various parts of town. Chas. Pierce
is putting up a fine two-story iron
front brick building on State street,
adjoining the Lion Drug-store. It is
understood that Thos. B. Dibble in
tends building a brick block on the up
per part of State street, on a portion of
the estate of Judge de la Guerra. E. J.
Knapp, of the late firm of Stevens &
Knapp, has erected a wooden building
on the upper part of State street, to be
used as an agricultural implement
warehouse, where Mr. Knapp intends
keeping a large and varied assortment.
Sucn au establishment has long been
needed in Santa Barbara and we wish
Mr. Knapp the best of success.
The feed in the upper part of the
county is reported to be quite short;
but with a warm Spring rain and clear
weather, there will probably be an
abundance of feed till late in the Fall.

Santa Barbara, March 24, 1874.
Temperance Movements.
In the legislative aspect of the fact,
the temperance movement in this
State is assuming significant position.
A bill has passed the Legislature that
no liquor shall be sold within two
miles of the University, and that no
liquor shall be sold on election days.
Vacaville demands the same re
straints thrown around her institu
tions of learning that is given the State
University. Local option has passed.
A bill is pending to make it a misde
meanor for one man to ask another to
drink. Then comes the moral suasion
process, when women appear in
saloons and places where drinking is
practiced, and pray and entreat that
men shall cease a traffic in tltat which
causes crime, destitution and death.—
[Northern Californian.
Mortimer's Last Victim.
The bloody dramatic coloring given
to the close of the life of Mary Shaw
Gibson, by Charles Mortimer has just
had an additional clement imparted
to it. She was murdered in Septem
ber, 1872. After the most diligent anil
fruitless search for a will, her brother,
James Hush, was granted the admin
istration of the estate, and on the 28th
of October, 1873, the final account hav
ing been rendered and approved, the
estate than having come to the knowl
edge of the administrator and aggre
gating in cash, real estate, and solvent
debts, about $13,000, was decreed to be
distributed share and share alike to
James Rush and Pat. Rush of San
FrancisOO, Mrs. Israel Champion and
Mrs. Jos. Baldwin of Sacramento,
Michael Bush and Catherine Moane
of Ireland, sisters and brothers of the
deceased. But a week ago last Tues
day, in looking over a bundle of papers
which had been taken from Mrs. Gib
son's house to that of Mrs. Champion,
and which papers had frequently been
looked over before and pronounced
valueless, the long sought for will and
testament of the deceased was found.
It is dated October 21st, 1800, and is
duly executed. The devisees therein
mentioned are James and Patrick
Rush, Mrs. Champion, Mrs. Baldwin
and Mary Jane Champion, aged
twelve years, and George J. Baldwin,
aped eight, the bulk of the property
being left to the first four. The exec
utors are Isreal Champion and S. S.
Baldwin. The provisions of the will
are in accordance witli the frequently
declared intention of decedent to leave
her property to such of her folks as
had, at her request to all of them, fol
lowed her to California. Judge S. S-
Holl this morning tiled in the Probate
Court petitions to set aside the de
cree of distribution under the admin
istration and for probate of the will.
The hearing is set for April 6th next.
The effect will he to divide up $4,000,
which, otherwise, would have gone to
the brother and sister in Ireland,
among the California heirs.
New Homestead Law.
The proposed new homestead bill
contains the following among other
features: It requires actual settlement
and cultivation for five years, after
which, on due proof thereof, the settler
can obtain a title to 100 acres of land,
the whole cost of which will be $10 on
the entry of the land and |8 on the
final proof. If, however, the settler
wishes to obtain a title earlier than
Aye years, he can do so at the end of
eighteen months on payment of the
price of the land. It is thought that
eighteen months for settlement would
make such an improvement as would
keep lands under cultivation there
after. A special bill to provide for the
sale of limber lands is being prepared.

Objects of the Association.
The object of the Association Is to secure pe
cuniary aid of 82,000 to the families or depend
ants of deceased members. This we accom
plish in the most perfect and substantial man
ner, as has been substantiated within the last
few years by kindred societies; and that, too,
witli an expense so light that it has proved
not to be a burden upon its members, which
not only increases its popularity, but brings it
within reach of those most needing its protec
tion and aid.
Any person, male or female, may become a
member of this association it in good health
and over eighteen and under fifty yearsof age.
Ou proof of the deatli of a member of the
Association, his family or the person he has
appointed, receives immediately from the As
sociation $'.',OOO, or one dollar for each mem
ber m good standing, it t he membership is not
full.
All surplus shall be loaned on good and suf
ficient security (on real estate) to form a "per
manent reserve fund," tbe interest on Which
annually reverts to members in the form of an
abatement of assessments.
11l case of death, we send a notice to each
member. We shall have agents in each town
to receive the assessments and save members
the trouble of sending direct to tho Secretary.
The Association, as well as its fends, is under
the control of a Hoard of eleven Dhectors, who
are elected annually by the members ol
tho Association ; it is also incorporated un
der tlie Civil Code of the state, which code
does not allow any funds to be used for pur
poses other than set forth in the By-Laws,
while the Secretary and Treasurer are re
quired to give heavy bonds for the faithful
performance of their duties.
The Officers and Directors of the Association
receive no compensation whatever for their
services, except the Secretary, Who is simply
paid for keeping the books of the Association,
and the Treasurer.
All members will he allowed the same inter
est on lining' standing to their credit that the
funds of the Association draw, and they can
deposit SUch amounts as they may desire on
advance payments or as an endowment fund
for future years without risk or forfeiture,
Whether one or more deposit.
The Association is designed to save money,
not to spend it. None will feel poorer for be
longing to it, while many will bless the clay
that their father, mother, husband, or brother
Joined it.
A payment by one of the following methods
is necessary In order to secure a membership!
LIFE PAYMENT.
From 18 to 25 years of age $15 00
" 25 to 30 " " 20 00
" ,'io toSS " " 25 00
" 35 to 40 " " 30 00
" 40 to 45 " " 40 00

ANNUAL PAYMENTS.

" 35 to 40 " " 800
" 40 b) 45 " " 800
" 45 to SO " '• 10 00
A Life Payment secures a life membership,
and relieves a person from any further pay
ments accept the one dollar assessment on
the death of any member. The annual divi
dend of Life Members wili be applied to can
cel the one dollar assessments.
Annual payments continue through life.
The annual dividend to those making the an
nual payments will be applied first to cancel
tlie annual payments and uftcrwards to can
oel'tbe one dollar assessments.
Persons are allowed to choose between ordi
nary membership mid Lite Membership, Lite
Members make no annual payments. Other
members at the time of Joining make one
annual payment.
Persons taking a life membership can pay
one-fourth of the required amount ut the time
of making application and the balance in
ninety days at one per cent, per mouth inter
est.
Tho interest on tho Reserve Fund is distri
buted annually among the members as a divi
dend, according to the length of time cacti
person has been a member—members of five
years' standing receiving five times as much
as members of one year's standing.
Do not confound us with life insurance. We
are a " Protective Association." We do busi
ness in a different way—in part for the same
purpose, but for one-fifth the expense to mem
bers, who receive ull the benefit.
Further particulars of the Association can
be obtained from the Secretary In person or
by letter, or of any Local Agent.

The Local Option Bill.
Quite an Interesting debate was had
in the Assembly on Saturday last, on
the local option bill. It passeil the
Assembly by a most decided majority.
That our people may have a Knowl
edge of the new powers vested in them
by virtue of the provisions of this bill,
we will present its prominent fea
tures.
Section 1. From and after the
passage of this act, whenever one
fourth the number of legal voters of
any township, incorporated city or
town shall petition the Hoard of
Supervisors of such county, or the
county wherein such township incor
porated city or town is situated, to
call a special election to vote upon the
"liquor license," or "no liquor
license," the Board of Supervisors of
the county receiving said petition
shall, within one month after said
petition is tiled with the Clerk of said
Board, make proclamation of the hold
ing of said election in the township,
incorporated city or town, as may be
asked for In such petition.
As the bill was a Senate bill and had
been passed by that body, it now only
remains for our chief magistrate to
give it his signature to make it a law.
