CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SATURDAY AUGUST 15, 1874. Councilmen. An article in a late number of the Evening Express while it does not di rectly attack the members of our pres ent Council, certainly indicates that it is the opinion of the writer that they should not be re-elected. The uncomplimentary reflections of our cotemporary upon these gentlemen seem to us to be undeserved. If we go back a little less than four years in the history of our municipal affairs, we find that the City Treasury was quite empty, and that to meet our cur rent expenses it was necessary to issue scrip, which would not sell at par nor within thirty-three per cent, of It. A glance at our present financial affairs shows that we have no scrip on the market, and the city's liabilities are promptly paid in coin. Men who went into office under the circumstances named and have so arranged the af fairs of the city so as to make the showing our Councilmen now does, may not be as "wide between the eyes" as a mule nor be able to evince the mental ponderosity of the Express editor, but they havo done their city ■ome service, and as they work with out fee or. salary, they are at least de serving of our thanks for economy if not for enterprise. The extra taxa tion that has been imposed since the election of the present Councilmen has been assumed by a direct vote of the people, and if there are complaints at the imposition of these taxes, they cannot be directed at the Councilmen. If the present City Fathers have erred, they have done so in favor of the masses. They have practiced econ omy perhaps a little too rigidly, but economy is a virtue, and by practicing it we become wealthy. Under the circumstances we think the Council has done well—so well that the mem bers merit the thanks of the commu nity. What should he done in the fu ture we shall allude to hereafter. Water, Water. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Beau dry's water works were set in opera tion, and in a few minutes a jet of water fifty feet high from the top of the high hill near Temple street, as tonished those who happened to turn their eyes in that direction. The problem, "Can water he had on the hill lands?" which has so long puz zled our citizens, is solved. Mr. Beaudry's enterprise and tireless en ergy have given us the solution, and water, any amount of water, flows over the highest lands to the west of the city. We regard the success of Mr. Beaudry's experiment as the dawning of a new era of prosperity in Loa Angeles. It is an event which our citizens regard with the most pleasurable sensations. We have al ways claimed that these high lands would become the most valuable building sites the moment it could be shown that the required amount of water could be thrown upon them, and we shall maintain our theory until its correctness is demonstrated, which we are sure will be done within the next few months. The water is now high up on Temple street within four blocks of Main street. Along Temple street building will commence immediately, and within a very short time we shall see hundreds of cottage houses dotting the high lands, and long before the croakers have passed away we shall see those cottages surrounded by groves, or chards and flower gardens, for all of which the city will be indebted to the enterprise of a man who, if he had lis tened to the advice of many, would have adopted the safe plan of loaning his money at two per cent, and let the hill lands remain barren. We mean Mr. P. Beaudry. Site Selected. The Alden Evaporator ia to be built on the elevated land on the right of the road, a short distance beyond the bridge. This location was selected by Mr. Davis, with the aid of Mr. Tem ple, after learning that the lines of the fire ordinance prevented the estab lishment of this business on Requena street, where a more satisfactory loca tion had been accepted from Don Manuel Requena. Mr. Davies is not only satisfied, but quite delighted, with the fruit yield in this county. He declares with enthusiasm that he never saw better fruit than is to be found in great abundance about the city and in various parts of the county. He also says that all kinds of vegeta bles of which there is a surplus in the market can be dried to the ad vantage of producers, and he has found a market for all he can get to-day. The advantage to the county of this business must be ap parent to every intelligent reader. JSo more money will be sent out of the county for these dried fruits, but a large income will accrue to the com munity from the fruit dried and shipped from here to Arizona and other parts of the country. Of course there can be no limit set to the busi ness of fruit-raising, for the facilities for drying can always be made to ex ceed the fruit crop, and the price of fruit will never fall below a standard of profit. We may now safely advise farmers to engage with confidence and zeal in the cultivation of fruits and vegetables, for no risk will attend the venture, and they are certain to be well paid for their enterprise. Mr. Davis expects to have his works in operation in less than a month from this time.jl An Insult to the People. The removal of Professor C.v ivb from the State University cannot be re garded in any other light tbau that of open contempt for the wishes of the people. His dismissal Is the work of a ring—a monied, speculative, bank ing ring—composed of men who fancy themselves members of a monied aris tocracy, before which the laboring masses of the State must bow down in meekness and humiliation. Tho struggle has not been to depose Pro fessor Carr so much as to sap the vitality of the only depratment in the University that could work the gen eral benelit of the community —the de partment of Agriculture. The study of such a plebeian profession or calling as that of farming, is distasteful to the the elegant professors who tell of the stars, the far-off constellations; how the old Greeks wrote, and the Ancient Latins spoke; of the interior of the earth; the rings of Saturn, and the bark on the north pole, but not one of them contributes a bit of information that will cause the growth of two blades of grass where one grows now. That is the task of plain people like Professor Carr. The University is an aristocratic institution. Its tone must be maintained, and to do this the farmer's friend is expelled. The kid glove professors and banker Re gents will havo everything as they wish until the meeting of the next Legislature, when the Granger voice will be heard in tones more emphatic than complimentary to those who have driven the Granger Professor from the University. The following explains the position of the Regents on the resolution to remove Professor Carr: Ayes—Regents Booth, Mills, Winans, Kteb bins, Archer, Martin, McKee, fewWt, Moss, Ralston atul Haight. Noes—Regents Eslee, Hallktie, Dwindle, Sachs, Felton and Hamilton. Excused—Regent Hager. Absent—Regents Pacheco, Bolander, Carey, Bowie and Oilman. Proceedings of the Grange Council. Editor Herald: By instruction of the Los Angeles and San Bernardino District Council, Patrons of Hus bandry, I hereby furnish such por tions of the proceedings of the Council at Its meeting of August 11th, as the Committee on Publication authorize. Much other business of a private na ture and important character was transacted, and the meeting was char acterized with the utmost cordiality and harmony. Council opened in form, W. M. Thos. A. Garey of Los An geles presiding. All the Granges in the district, except Alliance and Riverside, nineteen in number, were represented by about forty duly ac credited delegates, in addition to which a large number of Fourth De gree members were present from vari ous portions of the district. The Centennial Committee, through its Chairman, Bro. Porter of Florence, made a full report, stating what meas ures have been taken by the Patrons of Husbandry to secure a creditable exhibition of the industries of this State, the Legislature having failed to make an appropriation for that pur pose. The reports of this committee from time to time have received the marked approval of the Council. On motion, the Committee on Centennial wa9 added to the list of standing committees. Committee on Guide Posts and Sign Boards report very satisfactory pro gress, the Board ol* Supervisors hav ing instructed the Road Commissioner to erect the same, and in compliance with such instructions many boards have been put up. Report received and committee continued, with the addition of another member, Brother Gibbs being appointed. Committee on Agricultural Exposi tion also report encouraging progress, including the action of the Board of Directors of the Association, which held a meeting this day, taking vigor ous action in perfecting plans for hold ing a fair this season. The Secretary was instructed to advertise until Sep tember Ist for proposals for a site for lair grounds, .etc., which action was heartily indorsed by the Council. Standing Committee on Manufac tures, Southworth, Chairman, reported the steps that have been taken to en courage the establishment of a paper mill in Los Angeles. The committee have apparently secured the cordial co-operation ol the municipal authori ties of Los Angeles. The city Council have agreedjto give the use of water, in the event of parties wishing to use it making a reasonable investment in establishing a manufactory. There is now every prospect that this addition to our industries, will be made at an early day. Report received and filed. The following resolution introduced by Brother Gordon was unanimously adopted: •Resolved, That the Council hereby approve the resolution in relation to the "National Washington Monu mental Fund," adopted by Azusa and El Monte Granges and earnestly rec ommend the adoption of the same or similar resolutions by the several Granges in this district. The resolutions referred to read as follows: Whereas, The lingering incom pleteness of the National Washington Monument, tbe corner stone of which was laid on the 4th day of July, 1850, is a standing reproach to the degener ate sons of so illustrious a sire—The Father of his Country—therefore Resolved, First, that we the mem bers of Azusa Grange, No. 94, P. of H. of Los Angeles county, California, agree to make a fund by annual con tribution for two years, of fifty cents for euch member of this Grange, to be called the "National Washington Monument Fund." Resolved, Second—That all subordi nate Granges in the United States be invited to co-operate in this move ment, in order to raise sufficient money to complete said mouument by the 4th day of July, 1870. These resolutions have already ap peared in the Pacify, Rural PVess, with favorable notice from State Sec retary W. H. Baxter. The following preamble and resolu tions, presented by brother McComas, of Compton, was adopted by a unani mous vote and in a very emphatic manner. Whereas, The University of Cali fornia was originally established espe cially for an Agricultural College by an endowment made by the Congress of the United States, and WHEREAS. The Regents of the University at a late meeting passed a ■•solution, with but one dissenting vote, that of Regent J. M. Hamilton, Master of the State Grange, asking Professor Oafr of the Agricultural De partment to resign his position, with a view to substitute a series of lectures in place of said Department, and thus retaining only in name the grand cen tral Idea for which the University was established, therefore be It Resolved, That the manly and noble stand taken by Worthy Master J. M. Hamilton, of the State Grange of Pa trons of Husbandry, meets with the hearty commendation of this Council. Resolved, further, That we will, as Grangers, respect the recommendation ofthe National Grange in regard to our national and industrial colleges, and resist by every means in our power any effort to subvert them to other than the specific purposes plainly in dicated in the Act of endowment . Moved and carried that the Council heartily indorses the action of the Santa Barbara Grange on this subject. The Secretary was directed to fur nish these resolutions and the action of this Council for publication. Worthy Master Garey delivered a short but spirited and earnest address, which was well received and warmly applauded. Brothers Stafford, Stanley and Ev ey were appointed a committee to procure the services of a lecturer for the next meeting of the Council. On motion, the Council adjourned to meet at Compton on the second Tues day of November at 10 o'clock a. St. J. F. Marquis, Secy. Anaheim, August 11, 1874. NEW TO-DAY.
