CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
THURSDAY 'JULY 16, 1874. LOCAL BREVITIES. O. W. Morgan still has Uioney to loan. The Ori/aha will sail f'»r nd Die-go Saturday, July ISth. The circus will he here to-morrow. Our young Aniei ic.im are all expect ft* tion. We are glad (ole vrn that Dr. Stan* way is improving somewhat froiu his aenO'ia illness. The Lo- Angeles sails for Satt Diego to-day. Passengers will leave by the lo a. m. train. On Saturday the steamer will return and sail for San Francisco. About forty-five members of Merrill Lodge, 1. O. <». T., participated in the visit 10 the Gallatin Lodge on Tues day evening. The party returned about 12 o'clock the same nignl, highly phased with their trip. A warrant was issued yesterday for the arrest of Charley Carson, on the complnintof ey yon Satierwoid. (.'ar son threatened to puncture the dia phram of the complainant and allow the light of heaven to pass through him) hence the difficulty. The caieof the People vs. Wily Me> Nair, on a charge of committing rape, 'vas before the County Court yester d y. The case was tried with closed doors, and at 12 o'clock last night the jury returned with a verdict of assault with intent to commit rape. Complaint was entered before Jus t'ce Gray, yesterday, against one BeV> iuiM lor disturbing the peace by shoot ing a dog. The aggrieved party was Maria Del Carmen M. D. Valen/uela (the rest of the name is not given). Defendant plead guilty, and was fined costs. A team drawing a wagon in which a man and family were seated, ran away yesterday on the corner of A lino and Alameda streets. A small child was thrown out of the wagon, hut for tunately sustained no injury. The team was stopped by the driver in a short time without doimr any material damage. The steamer Senator sailed from San Francisco yesterday morning, with the following passengers for Wilmington: J. Fnglander, W. Wright, J. G. Dor man, Mrs. Osterman, Mrs. Fortman, <\ VV. Coburn, Hoser Stantfer, Mrs. Fox and son, Herman Newman, Wm. E.Tyler, C.Webb, Mrs. Kleiner, J. DeWitt, P. Dawson. Mrs. Baokman while descending the stairway at Mr. Kimhall's new resi dence yesterday, met with what might have proved a most serious ac cident. Some six or seven steps from the floor the heel of her shoe st ruck the edge of a stair, and threw her headlong upon the floor, the entire weight of her hody falling upon her face. Dr. McKee was hastily sum moned, but fortunately found no bones broken. A badly bruised face and a terrible shock to the entire system will require extra care on her part aud good nursing for a few days, when she will be all right again. The Express says: " Downey City, the name of the little town that has grown up at the terminus of the Ana helm Branch of the railroad, is quite a thrifty and improving little burg. There tiresome twenty houses grouped together on a fine site, including all (classes of country business stores. The new Odd Fellows' building is going up, And the walls are nearly completed. it will be quite a presentable structure when finished. The splendid and thickly-settled country which sur rounds it insures it a permanent posi tion as a good centre of trade. Noth ing can be more picturesque or beau tiful than the roads in that vicinity, passing between lines of locust, Cot tonwood and ash trees, completely shading them." The Mutual Aid Association held a special meeting yesterday at the Sec retary's office No. 41 Temple Block. A majority of the members were in attendance, either in person or by proxy. The amendments as proposed !tiy the Board of Directors were adopted with but one dissenting vote. A meeting of the Board of Directors was also held, and a large number of applications for membership were acted upon. The members were well pleased with the management, and no association of the kind ever stood fairer iv public esteem than this one does to-day. The July number of the Mutual Aid will appear on Sat ur day, Those desiring to advertise showid apply at once. The next meet ing of the Board of Directors will be field on Tuesday, August 2oth. The Russian Elver Flag has the following item, which relates to Dr. T. XL Kose, an aforetime resident of Los Angeles, the designer of our High School building and really the father of our public school system. TlwFlag rays: "L«.«t Tuesday, at the residence of Dr. T. H. Kose, corner of Fitch and Haydon streets, we saw a rare and beautiful flower called the globe cac tus. The bloom of the plant is com monly known by the name given above, from its growing in the form of a globe. We believe the globe cac tus blooms but once a year, and the flower lives only a Say. A stem a half or three-quarters of an inch in diameter shoots out eight or ten inches from the plant and terminates in a floorer about the size and shape of. a white Kly, with two sets of cream and pink-tiuu'd leaves, exquisitely shaded in various degrees of color. Besides many choice plants and flowers, Dr. Kose and wife are surrounded in their ■beautiful home by a great variety of .evergreens and shade and ornamental drees of larger growth than those of ■any other residence in the city." Professor Denton's Lecture. 111 « The first of his series of lectures was delivered by Prof. Denton at Grange Hall last night. A fair audience was present, and throughout the discourse remained wrapt in interest. The Pro fessor has a rather pleasing address, with a ready flow of language, and he had no trouble in fixing the atten tion of bis iiearers upon the subject in hand, and retaining it to tbe end of his lecture. The Professor's remarks were illustrated by charts hung about the room, illustrating tlie geological for mation of the earth, the earliest ani mal creations, mastadons, etc, as well as a col!* i l ion of mineral specimens. As a preface to his lecture, and in fact to the whole course, the Professor dwelt to some extent on the impor tance of tho study of (geology. We are in our physical construction from the earth, containing its elements in every part of our body. The history of man is wrapped up in the history of Map showing the geographical and commercial position of Los Angeles; ihe system of Trans continental Kai'lroadson the Pa cific Coast; the impassable ranges of mountains parallel to I he coast north and south of San Gorgonlo Paaa —the only natural pass in Ihe mountains from lower California to Oregon; showing also the largest nnd richest mining region in the world tributary to Los Angeles; showing the proposed railroads to the rich mini s of Cerro Gordo and to Salt Lake; also the thirty liflli and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al buquerque, 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, ],">ou; san Gabriel* 200; FA Monte, 100; Spadra, 80; Gal latin, 100; Santa Ana, 50; West minster, 50; Compton, 50; San Fernando, 50; Florence, 60; Tus tin City, 50. These are each the nucleus of a rich farming section. It is plain to be seen that Los Angeles county is the represent ative county of Southern Califor nia, and the emporium of Los Angeles county and Southern California is Los Angeles City, centrally located therein ; also centrally located in the best val ley on the Globe. the earth. This history, written by the infallible hand of God, is the noblest to which we can devote our attention. It is written by the fiery linger of the volcano and imbedded in the solid rock; it is every where to be found, if only we can read Its import. It is a practical study, and taken in that sense it will pay in dollars and cents. The farmer whose plowshare turns the soil can learn of it with pro lit. By it he will he able to judge of the capacities of his soil and in what respects it may be wanting and how the defect can be remedied. Every farmer can tell how long and how wide his farm is, hut few can tell its thick ne-s. He not only owns the surface, but its depth to eight thousand feet. Many a man goes poor all his life, when upon his own land within thirty feet of his nose thee is wealth enough to make him richer than anybody whom he knows. But geology is much more valuable in its higher and nobler sense. Especially is it important to the theologian; he can learn what God is doing by learning what he has done in the formation of our earth. The study of nature will in no way deteri orate from all there is of true religion and goodness and nobility. The Professor then took up the sub ject of the formation of the earth through the action of water and lire, which he treated in a very full and exhaustive manner. He gave a beau tiful description of the eruption of Vesuvius and the destruction of Pom peii and Herculaneum. Many other examples found in history were cited in proof of the theory tha: the center of the earth is a molten mass. In speaking of California he said that in many parts of the State the entire surface of the country is made up of lava of volcanic origin. There are numberless old and inactive volcanoes in the State, and it is his opinion that at some day these volcanoes will again become active, producing earthquakes and eruptions similar to those which formerly occurred. The lecture was intensely interesting throughout, and abounded in beautiful illustrations and pointed facts. The discourse was fully intelligible to all present, being couched in plain king's English, without the scientific verbage which proves so confounding to many in or dinary scientilic lectures. To-night the second lecture of the course will be delivered, and we bespeak for Prof. Denton a crowded house. TRIP TO SAN FERNANDO. Tlio Valley mill A'ew City. Kan Fernando valley is about forty miles long and fifteen wide. The first class land of which the valley consists cannot be said to embrace more than about thirty miles of the upper por tion, as the lower portion is consider ably washed and covered with gravel and a growth of sage brush. The val ley is quite regular in its outline and is completely surrounded by a uniform and regularly shaped chain of moun tains, with the exception ofthe outlet of the Los Angeles river at the lower end, through which it makes its way down to this city. It has a little chain or cluster of hills in the northeastern side, aud a few other undulations, and with these exceptions it is almost per fectly level. Thus situated—so com pletely walled in—the scenery is hardy surpassed by any of the charming val leys with which our Golden State abounds. From almost every portion of the valley the Coast 1 me Stage road may be seen winding down San Fer nando mountain in the northwestern end of the valley, while the Telegraph Stage Line enters through the San Fernando Pass, a narrow cafion in tlie northeastern side. Some portions of the valley are covered with beautiful parks of evergreen oaks, and the thou sand little mountain peaks set in thc\ surrounding chain which walls in this lovely valley, present a picture larely to be found. A little east from the center of the valley stands the grand old San Fernando Mission Key (such was it original name), now known as San Fernando Mission, tlie largest anil grandest of all the missions of Califor nia, with one exception: that of San Luis Key. The main Mission building of this latter contained five halls over one hundred feet in length. We have had the pleasure of visit ing or seeing nineteen of the twenty one old Missions of this State, and we have never been so much interested as in our visit to San Fernu.udo Mission. Through the courtesy of Senator Maclay,we spent the night at the Mis sion, and the evening with Don An dreas Pico, brother of Don Pio Pico, who was General- commanding the army at the time Don Pio was Gov ernor, when Gen. Fremont took the State. From him we learned many interesting facts relative to the Mission and the operations of the old Padres nearly one hundred years ago. Tbe old church, with the statuary, bells, etc.; the old olive oil mill, and ancient relics of their extensive oper ations are objects of deep interest, es pecially the old records which we had the pleasure of examining. The grounds covered by the buildings and gardens walled in, embrace seventy three acres. The church and main building, covered by a connected roof cover four acres. This Mission was ; founded the Bth of September, 170", MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. and was twelve years in building; five thousand Indians were employed in lis construction. The timbers were brought from the other side of the mountains by the Indians. The wealth of this Mission at one time was immense. The Padres at one time owned 00,000 sheep, 3,000 hogs, and worked GOO yoke of oxen, having the whole valley, nearly, under cultivation. Here now stands the stately old palm trees, eight or nine feet in circumfer ence, and here are olive trees seven or eight feet in circumference. Here are now standing almost every variety of trees that California ever produced. Richer soil can hardly be found than in this section. Fourteen hundred acres of grain, in one body, have been raised adjoining the Mission this sea son, yielding largely. To show the warmth of this valley, and the rapid ity with which crops mature, we will state that roasting ears are now, the middle of July, being gathered from corn panted on land from which a good crop of barley hay was cut in the Spring. The rapidity ofthe growth of crops all over this valley, so sheltered as it is, is marvelous. We traversed carefully nearly all the eastern portion of the valley, taking observations of the soil, the lay of the land, its adapt ability, and especially the water sup ply, particularly tlvit portion within the purchase of Senator Maclay. The climate, as indicated by what we have said, is all that can be desired, some what warmer in the Summer than this city, with no frosts in Winter to do any harm. FruUs do remarkably well, as far as they have been tested, and certainly those now growing at the San Fernando Mission are a test of the superiority of this locality, we think, for all kinds of semi-tropical fruits, some of the most delicate of which are a great success, viz: the pomegranate, etc. The palm tree here has a greater growth than we have seen elsewhere in Southern California. The soil of all this sect on is a hard sandy soil, of a reddish cast, with con siderable gravel, especially near the border of the valley. It does not bake at all, and we di not see a crack half an inch wide in the valley. We pro nounce it first-class grape land; in fact, we believe it to be tlie very best large grape tract in the State. More of San Fernando to-morrow. Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber of Commerce met last night, in the Directors' room of tl o Fanners' and Mediants' Bank. Pres ent; President Lazard and Messrs. Downey, Widney, New/mark, Griffin aml Lips. A petition was presented asking for a daily mail from Salinas City to Los Angeles, with a request that the Chamber of Commerce indorse it. On motion, the President was au thor z d to in lorse the same, Governor Downey placed the apart ment of the Hank occupied at the dis posal of t h e Chamber, and extended an invitation to them to make it their permanent place of meeting. Ou motion Mr. Dips was requested t n act as secretary pro tern, in the ab sence of Mr. Lord. Mr. Newmark, from the committee to whom was referred the subject of Local Option, reported the following resolutions. Resolved, That in the opinion of the Low Angeles Chamber of Commerce the Act of the last Legislature of this State, conferring upon the voters of townships the right to determine whether license to sell liquors shall be granted or withheld, is dangerous to American liberty and subversive of the rights of the people as guaranteed by both our State and Federal Consti tutions. Resolved, That should the Legisla ture have the constitutional right to refer this question back to the people, it would have the same power to con fer upon them the right to virtually make any other laws, and this might be so abused and carried to excess as to seriously impair those sacred guaran tees of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness which were the very essence and foundation of our government. Resolved, That as a question of commerce, the passage of the law re ferred to would necessarily be produc tive of Irreparable injury,' for it would to a great extent check the develop ment of our wine interests, one of the most important industries of our State; and although in this view the question of Local Option would most properly come before this body, still this ( hani i cr prefers to present its opinion to Ihe people upon the higher grounds em braced in the preceding resolutions, hoping that these views may receive such an indorsement of the people of the whole State as will have the effect of frowning down such pernicious leg islation in future. Resolved, That the press of this State are respectfully requested to publish the foregoing resolutions. The adoption of the resolutions be ing moved and seconded, Judge Wid ney opposed them in a spirited speech. He claimed that the Chamber was or ganized for the purpose of furthering the commercial interests of Los Ange les county —not to pass upon questions of law or politics. Gov, Downey favored the adoption of tbe resolutions. Judge Widney replied and withdrew his second to the mot ion, which he had made simply to bring the matter before the house. • The question being put, the motion to adopt was carried, Judge Widney voting no, all the others votine aye. He desired to be understood that he claimed that the powers of the Cham ber were limited to commercial inter ests, and not to the legal rights of citizens. The Chamber then adjourned. LETTER FROM COMPTON. Whßta Granger Think* About Thai* Mottoes—l/ii.)liftt Atscw I. Ihe Orangcro* <un J Mates tor Oflicc, Honest Men. Editor Herald: Since my last several important items have trans pired, of which I propose to speak. First, was the celebration of the "glo rious Fourth " in Los Angeles city, which was done in a manuer worthy the occasion; but the most important feature of it to the mind of your humble corre- indent was the "Granger por tion of the procession," which, under the able supervision of the Grand Marshal, Captain S , made a very imposing appearance. The only ob jections that I have heard of were brought by the Evening Express to some of the mottoes written upon the car in which the ladies rode, some of which were as follows: "We now number 1,500,000," " Honest men to fill our offices," etc. Now, Mr. Editor, what objection can the Express or anybody else have to such mottoes, gotten up by " honest Grangers ?" I admit it would be something very strange if we had honest men to fiil all our offices! but is that any reason we should not desire such a boon? Let me say right here that it is a part of the mission of the Grange, and we intend, "by the grace of God" and Granger votes, to bring about just such results, and we call upon all honest laboring men, who have the good of the country at heart, to come to the rescue. Another item of no small impor tance can he witnessed by looking in upon the Board of Supervisors, where can he seen those "bard-handed, sun burned Grangers," standing around, pleading for and demanding an equal assessment of property. We do not object that our property is assessed too high, but we do object to large grants of land being assessed at less than one-fourth their value. We feel that we have been grievously imposed upon, ami now, sir, we have sworn by the "Granger's God" that we wiil tacitly submit no longer. Let me again say that we demand nothing unreasonable; we only ask for justice and equity. The Grange County Committee found large tracts of graz ing land assessed at twenty-five to seventy-live cents per acre, and some as line kind as " ever a crow Hupped bis wing over" assessed at two and a half to eight dollars per acre, when the small farmers are assessed at from ten to thirty dollars to the acre. Is that justice? No, sir. Justice in thunder tones answers, No! We gladly wel come enterprise and capital to our fair land, but we do not want capital to shirk duty and oppress the poor.
