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.
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

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
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
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
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
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,
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.
More anon, GRANGER.
