COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY APRIL 2, 1874. WEEKLY HERALD. The Weekly Herald of this week contains nearly twenty columns of original matter relating to the agricul tural, commercial and manufacturing resources of the county. It will con tain full articles on our harbors and their improve ments, also on our rail roads to Cerro Gordo, Salt Lake and Arizona, and the mineral resources of those countries. The leading articles from the dailies since last Saturday will be in it, also the matter of to-day and to-morrow. Leave your orders in advance. One hundred copies are al ready engaged; one man ordered fifty copies. Price, ten cents each, in wrapper with postage stamp. OUR SECOND VOLUME. To-day the Herald starts on its second volume. No great enterprise is ever carried to success unless its managers are men of great energy and united. It is overcoming difficulties that measures the greatness of the success. That which any one can do is only a common thing. The brief history of the Herald has been eventful, and now it has before it, we believe, a good mission. A joint stock company—capital stock $15,000, of which some $12,300 is already taken by our business men and farmers—has the management of the establishment. They are determined to secure able men to conduct the different depart ments of the paper. The paper will be conducted in the interests of the county, and not in the selfish interests of any person or party. We believe the people want this kind of a paper; if they do, then come forward at once and subscribe for it and advertise in it, and whenever it turns from its proposed line of work and persists in it, then drop it. Do not delay action "to see how the paper goes first," but support it at once if you approve it, and do so from week to week while it suits you. You can drop it at any time. Commercial Position of Los An geles County. Commercial distances are not com puted by the length in miles between two points, but by the cost in labor, wear and tear and time consumed in passing over distances. This branch of the problem is reduced to an accu rate science by railroad companies. It has been found that itcosts as much to rise or fall a grade of twenty feet as it does to run a mile further on a level road. Hence it is as cheap to run Aye miles further around a hill as it is to run up a grade of fifty feet to go over it. So each curve is the same as adding an additional distance to the road. For this reason it is commercially nearer for Scott to run two hundred miles farther through San Gorgonio Pass, than to run direct over the mountains to San Diego. With this rule as our guide, we will show that Los Angeles is the natural commer cial shipping point on the Pacific Coast for "our back country" as shown on our map. The only competing point is San Francisco. As shown by the official survey of the Central Pa cific Railroad, the road from San Francisco to Salt Lake is 950 miles. The sum of the successive elevations is 11,738 feet; the sum of the depres sions is 5,462 feet; total 17,100 feet. Divide this by twenty, and we have 855 miles to be added to the running length Hence from San Francisco to Salt Lake the commercial distance is equal to 1,809 miles of level road. This distance does not include the addi tional length for curves, of which we have no statistics. A competent engi neer acquainted with the road assured us that the many short curves would add at least 400 miles more, making the distance 2,209 miles. The cause of this is that the Central Pacific Rail road cuts right across several moun tain ranges. A glance at our map shows this fact, and that part of it is made from a map of the Central Pacific Railroad Company. On our map the size allows only the bold ranges to be shown. Now pass the eye over the route from Los Angeles to Salt Lake. It will be seen that the heavy mountain ranges run nearly north and south and termi nate before reaching very far south. The route from Los Angeles follows a natural grade all the way to Salt Lake having no heavy grades or sharp curves. The length of a road from here to Salt Lake will be almost 900 miles. The elevation of Salt Lake is about 4,000 feet, equal to 200 miles. An actual survey would show inter mediate elevations and depressions of probably 2,000 feet, equal to 100 miles. Curves would probably be equal to 100 miles. Total commercial distance from Los Angeles to Salt Lake 1,300 miles, against 2,209 miles, the dis tance from San Francisco to Salt Lake. The difference in favor of Los Angeles is 909 miles. Another item in the case is that the road to Los Angeles will run below the snow-belt, which of itself is of vast importance. At this time a road is already under way from Salt Lake toward us, and has Pioche for its objective point. Extend from Los Angeles a road to meet this one aud it will open up the extensive min ing regions of Southern Nevada, Utah and Northwestern Arizona. Look at our map with the proposed road from San Gorgonio Pass to Salt Lake, or deflect the road from Pioche to Cerro Gordo if found practicable. All the ores of these thousands of mines will reach tide-water here and save the present cost of transportation of ores MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. Map showing the geographical and commercial position of Los Angeles; the system of Trans- Continental Railroads on the Pa cific Coast; the impassable ranges of mountains parallel to the coast north and south of San Gorgonio Pass —the only natural pass in the mountains from Lower California to Oregon; showing also the largest and richest mining region In the world tributary to liOs Angeles; showing the proposed railroads to the rich mines of Cerro Gordo, to Salt Lake; also the thirty fifth and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al burquerque, as proposed by Col Scott. The names of the follow ing important places in the coun ty are omitted from the map for want of space: Anaheim, popu lation, 1.500; San Gabriel, 200; El Monte, 100; Spadra, 50; Gal latin, 100; Santa Ana, 50; West minster, 50; Compton, 50; San Fernando, 50; Florence, 50; Tus tin City, 50. These are each the nucleus of a rich farming section. 909 miles. Look again at the map. It will be seen that San Gorgonio Pass is almost due east of Los Angeles. At this pass the mountain range has been pulled apart breaking the range iv two and making a pass of so easy a grade that the ascent is not perceptable to the eye. Through this pass the 35th and 32d parallel roads must find their way to the Pacific, and once entering the pass are forced through the Los Angeles valley. These roads tap the entire resources of Arizona, North western Colorado and western part of New Mexico. The roads north from Los Angeles, one alang the coast, the other down the San Joaquin plains to San Fran cisco, Stockton. Sacramento, and con necting with the entire northern sys tem of State and trans-continental roads; two others contemplated, one to Cerro Gordo and one to Truxton on the coast, and one now being built to Anaheim, complete the railroad sys tem which makes Los Angeles its cen ter. These roads will open up an un limited market for our semi-tropical fruits and farming products. Our merchants can by energy and business foresight make this place the great wholesale metropolis of this vast area. Spread this information and the fore going facts breadcast over the land. Let it reach the eye of the capitalist and the railroad men. Some one will take hold of the enterprise, put it in shape, and with that determination which knows no failure, will carry it out to success. Cannot our Chamber of Commerce start the matter, and in duce some energetic citizens to organ ize a company? Go before Congress for aid aud build the road to Pioche or Beaver, connecting with the South ern Utah Railroad. To give some idea of the business the road may be ex pected to transact we publish the fol lowing statistics taken in 1872. Utah is the best illustration in point. Agri culture there had a quarter of a cen tury the start of mining, yet in two years of mineral development the min ing demand is double the agricultural supply. More farm products are being carried to the mining camps of Utah by the Pacific railways than are fur nished them by Utah. So it is with every mining camp between here and there: The Union Pacific Railway carried, for the twelve months ending June 31, 1872, to Utah, from the Missouri valley, 20,848,398 pounds of corn and oats. The whole shipment west to the mountain regions, of grain, for the same time, was 36,443,040 pounds; of Hour it carried 4,665,800 pounds; of live hogs, the immediate product of corn, 6,611 head; of other live stock, 34,072 head; of general merchandise, 70,189, --832 pounds. The Willow Springs Dis tillery, at Omaha, used 100,000 bushels of corn in the manufacture of high wines in 1871, which were shipped ex clusively to the mountain markets. Other parties must have consumed nearly us large amounts of grain in the manufacture of malt beer, ale and porter, which was also shipped to the mountains, and which does not appear in the above figures. Colorado is more favorably situated for agriculture than any section in the mountains; but she is no exception, as her miners and graziers receive as many farm products from abroad as from her own soil. During the first six months of 1872, the Kansas Pacific Railway carried to that Territory 9,476,139 pounds of corn and oats, 2,585,932 pounds of Hour and meal, 1,000,000 pounds live cattle, 801, --450 pounds sheep and hogs, 1,772,000 pounds horses, 1,978,996 pounds beef and pork, 1,320,000 pounds salt, 2,500, --000 pounds wines and liquors—all the products of your farms. The total of the shipments to this one Territory alone, by this one railway, was 90,310, --549 pounds of freight. Cheyenne and Colorado received by the Union Pacific Railroad, in 1871, 1,000,000 pounds of fruit from the far-off orchards and vineyards of Southern California. By the proposed route to Salt Lake through a vast region of mines iv an arid and comparatively barren region, there will be poured a stream of pro duce and merchandise,with return car loads of rich ores, which would give the largest dividends to the railroad company. To Cerro Gordo the freight by team is fifty dollars per ton out, on merchandise, etc., and forty-five dol lars per ton on return bullion; by rail road it will be about nine dollars per ton. To the various points in Arizona and to Pioche tbe freight charges are from one hundred and fifty to two hun dred dollars per ton; by railroad it will be fifteen to twenty dollars per ton, out, and still lees on return freight. For our seaports, Wilmingtcß and Truxton, t.re both at the foot of a down hill grade on all of these roads. This important fact is not true of any other harbor on the coast. In the foregoing we have tried to confine our statement to facts, the most accurate we cau obtain. The reader can do his own reasoning and draw his own conclusions. We believe in the future commercial destiny of Los Angeles. Berries or Pills ?-Which ? Few persons realize the importance of small fruits and berries in a sani tary point of view, apart from their actual monied profit. It has been found that with the rapid increase in the consumption of such fruits and berries in cities, a corresponding im provement has been manifest in the general health of population. In a cli mate like this, we especially need such articles of food. The coming on of hot weather brings with it a tendency to biliary troubles, for which the pleas ant sub-acid flavor of berries, with their relaxing effect, is the remedy provided by Nature. It is much bet ter than many boxes of vaunted and widely-advertised "liverpills." Each family owning a small house-yard, can raise all the berries needed for its own use; no need of a large ranch. Berries have sold readily during the last two or three years at ten cents per pint. This involves quite a heavy outlay for the supply of even a small family during the season. Plant them in your own yard ! Setting the plants three feet apart will give a great many blackberry and raspberry bushes to a small area. Put grape vines around the fence training them up against the boards facing the sunlight. You will be astonished how much a small yard will yield. We know a space forty feet by seventy with thirteen lime trees, two lemons, two almonds, forty blackberry bushes, twenty rasp berry bushes, twelve currants and a dozen grape vines set around the place. Neither trees nor vines are crowded, plenty of room; they are simply well arranged. Plant fruit! Recollect, a garden is better than a drug-store. How to Save Young Trees from Rabbits. Mr. Davis, of the Kelsey Nursery of Oakland, tells us that a fine orchard of young trees was saved from rabbits in the following way: The owner killed a few rabbits and then disem boweled them. He then rubbed the young trees up and down with the warm bloody flesh, after which the rabbits would not touch a tree. The reason is this: rabbits live on vegeta ble food alone, they will not eat flesh of any kind. The smell and taste of the blood drives them away at once. Try it; you will at least lessen the number of rabbits by the ones you ex periment ou the trees with. Mb. Davis, from Oakland, one of the owners of the Kelsey Nursery, paid us a visit yesterday. We think he certainly suffers with good health. Mr. Davis is charmed with our county and will locate here. He proposes to start a nursery of deciduous fruit and ornamental trees, shrubs and plants— will raise about half a million blue gums for sale. Why Women Lose their Beauty. Shut up in the house nine-tenths of their time with either no exercise, or that which is of a limited, irksome sameness they are, of a consequence, unnaturally pale, soft and tender; their blood is poorly organized, their muscles small and flabby; and the force and functions of their body as a whole run low in the scale of life. A spurious fullness Is often seen in the outline during girlhood, which usually melt* like snow under an April sun whenever the endurance is put to the test, as performing the functions of a mother. The change in the appear ance from the maiden of one year to the mother of the next Is often so striking and end t ring that we some times think we are not looking on the same person. The round pleasing shape is prematurely displaced by a sharp angularity, and an untimely and unseemly appearance of age. Travel ers from other countries who have had extensive means for observation aud comparison, have remarked upon the great beauty of American women and the early age at which it is lost. Some have ascribed this to the climate ; but more intelligent observers agree that it is a hot-house enervating mode of life. English ladiusof rank, who by the way are celebrated for keeping their beauty even to a ripe old age, think nothing of walking a half a dozen miles at a time; while Ameri can ladies would think such a thing "perfectly dreadful." If American women, so daintily and richly fed will sit in dark and sultry rooms one live long day, they must expect to bloom too soon,to hasten through thischarm ing period—at the longest in about ten years—and for twenty-rive years after, having the grim satisfaction of being thin, wrinkled, angular and sallow. The Hill Improvements. Water Is (he all important question in South ern California. Let there be water and every thing in the vegetable line springs up and grows with a growth unparalleled In other lo calities. Orange trees spring up with marvel lous rapidity, and the spot becomes a little paradise under the manipulation of Industry, wherever water can be had. The hllf lands have been delayed In their sale simply because the arrangements for water were insufficient. The time given for their sale has consequently been extended for two months. A large reservoir capable ot coutaining untold hundreds of thousands of gallons of water Is now being constructod. An engine and pump Is now on its way hither, which will raise 30,000 gallons of water per hour Into the reservoir, more than Is now consumed by the entire city of Los Angeles. All lots must be sold previous to April 12th, for upon that date those that are left will be disposed of at public auction, by the popular auctioneer, Noyes. They will he sold on the installment plan, at his rooms in the Temple Block on Spring street; the first Installment payable on the day of sale. Fifteen thousand feet of pipe are now being laid In the streets, 8,000 feet of which are al ready in tlie ground, and a million-gallon res ervoir Is now being made to supply the lots with wuter. The City Surveyor has been ordered to de fine the grades and lines of Olive, Charily and Bunker Hill avenues, from Hill to Hope; Second street and Temple street from Hill to Hope. This will bring these lands within eusy reach of the business part of the city. The distance to the Court-house is less than it is to the Turner's Hall. Mr. Beaudry beingtheownerby perfect and indisputable title, offers the following scheme believing that it supplies a lelt want. His vnrious tracts have been surveyed, and plotted in lots of convenient size for resi dences, upwards of two hundred In number, and the maps, together with abstracts of title, are kept for public inspection at his office, op posite tho Pico House. Any person desiring to purchase can inspect the land, select his lot or lots, and acquire the same, If not previously taken up by another, upon the following terms, purchasers not be ing restricted to a single lot: The purchaser or his successor to pay the fixed price of the land selected by him In equal monthly Installments, as follows: On lots valued at $400 and upwards, but not to exceed 8500, 815 per month; on those valued at 8300 and less than $400, 810 per month. Payments In gold or currency and no interestdemanded. For cash In hand, a reduction of fifteen per cent will be made. The purchaser to have immodiate possession upon payment of the first installment and on execution and delivery of contract. The right of the purchasers may bo assign able to him, and his assigns to succeed to all his privileges and liabilities; standing iv all respects towards the vendor as an original obligor. Purchasers shall not be restricted to the pay ment of the installments as above shown, but may make payments in advance, and on such payments he will allow one per cent per month, from the date of payment until said payment would become due. Upon selection of a lot or lots by a purchaser and payment of the lirst Installment with $5 in U. S. gold coin, as expenses on the docu ment, Mr. Beaudry, with the purchaser, will execute und acknowledge a sealed agreement embodying the above conditions; and, upon full payment, according thereto, the under signed will execute and deliver to the pur chaser, or his lawful representatives, on de mand, a good and sufficient and absolute deed of conveyunce of the abstracted lands, in form of warranty against grantor, the grantee pay ing the cost of such deed. The location is very desirable. All that has heretofore been lacking is water, and that want Is now filled. Anywhere else, In as de sirabie location, lots readily command from 8300 to 81.000, and even higher rates. This property is put at tho astonishing low price of from $300 to 8400. But this Is not all. This may be paid in currency and a reduction of fifteen per cent will be made for cash In hand. NEW TO-DAY. TO^RESCOTT. J. IP.
