CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. FRIDAY SKIT. 18, 1574. The annual meeting of the Gran gers' Bank of California for tlie elec tion of Directors will be held at the office of the Bank in San Francisco on Thursday the third day of October. Los Angeles Valley is not a good placo for newspapers to send those of their attaches that they would retain. Within the last two weeks the corres pondents of two San Francisco jour nals have located here—one in this city aud the other at Anaheim. The narrow-gauge railroad connect ing Salinas and Monterey will be completed by the end of this month. It is eighteen and a half miles long and including rolling stock wharf and warehouses will cost a quarter of a million dollars. It is ow ned by the Grangers and shows what they can do. The press of advertisements on our columns this morning forces out a considerable amount of reading mat ter already in type. As an advertis ing medium, the Herald is superior to any other paper published in South ern California. Advertisers are alive to this fact, and hence the press upon our advertising columns. In order to settle a dispute between the Chronicle and the Call Michael Reese sends the following note to Mr. Pickering: " I find in this day's Chronicle a statement that the Morn ing Call is mortgaged to me for $70, --000, which is not true. I never held a mortgage against tho Morning Call or any other paper in this city. Chief-Engineer of the Fire De partment, Charlie Miles, informs us that the reason the engine did not take water from Mr. Beacdry's well during the burning of Mrs. Steams' mill, was the softness ofthe ground in the vicinity. It was feared that the great weight of the steamer would sink her wheels in the soft ground to a depth which would render her un manageable. Mb. Frank Pyle, who is to super intend the planing In position of the five Alden evaporators owned by Mr. George B. DAVIS, arrived per Orizaba yesterday, and from him we learn that the entire machinery will be in opera tion within the next twenty days. One or more of the evaporators may be ready for work before, but the en tire works will not be completed before the time named, which Mr. Pyle says will be in ample time for the now ripening grape crop. We learn that the grape makes the best raisin when dead ripe. MB. Wilcox, the Inventor of the Wilcox water lifter, arrived yester day. He comes to Los Angeles with a view of making a permanent home among us. He proposes to move his machinery down from San Francisco, and establish his factory here. Mr. Wilcox believes his lifter will come into general use in this valley, super ceding the wind mill and the steam engine as the motive power for raising waXer. With it, twenty-five or thirty thousand gallons of water may be raised In twelve hours, at a cost not exceeding fifty cents. The water is so near the surface that these lifters will raise almost any given quantity the required distance at a very light ex pense for fuel. Our Valley. There is no place on the Pacific coast that is attracting more attention abroad than Los Angeles, and there is no section which is improving more rapidly than our valley. Immigra tion is coming in; enterprises are pro gressing; houses are building; farms are improving; groves are growing, and land is increasing in value. We are doing well—our city is increasing Its population, extending its propor tions, and adding to its beauty of ap pearance—but we can do still better. Los Angeles valley is capable of sup porting a million people; it now con tains less than thirty thousand. There are miles and miles of rich soil yet a stranger to the plowshare. There are thousands of acres well adapted to fruit growing over which sheep are grazing now. There are millions and millions of gallons of unused water which may be utilized in irrigating these broad acres. We need one hun dred thousand men and women imme diately. Their homes are here, and at no distant day they will come and occupy them. We may hasten their arrival. The development of resources is the loadstone that attracts popula tion. When the road to homes anil wealth is once opened, it will soon be thronged with those seeking tlie prizes to be found at the journey's end. Be sides our rich soil and magnificent climate, we are the natural outlet for the vast yet undeveloped mineral wealth which lies to the east of us, and it is our duty to make the channel for the transportation of that wealth us cheap and rapid as possible. The building of a railroad to the interior such as contemplated by the Los An geles and Independence Kailroad Campany, will give a greater impett:s to the development and rapid settle ment of this portion of the State than any other one thing that can be done. The completion of this road will add twenty thousand to the population of this city and forty thousand to the population of this county within two years. Tlie increase in wealth will of course be proportionately great. To accomplish this requires an effort—an Immediate effort—on the part of our people. We must support the action of those capitalists who propose to come here and invest their money In our railroad enterprise. They will not build the road alone, and if we show no disposition to assist in a work from which we shall derive such immense benefit, we may depend on it that the promised capital from abroad will not be forthcoming and we shall be left alone In our apathy. The Statement Business. Mr. Beecher is preparing a state mena in response to Moulton's last document and he is so far along with it that we may begin to look for tlie privileged extracts — the author's proofs—in a short time. This will of course draw another shot from Moul ton and perhaps a broadside from Tilton's battery. It appears to us that as far as any good is likely to come from it this statement business might as well he brought to a close. In tho way of light literature, these "statements"' were all very well for a time but like the interminable stories of Sylvanus Cobb Jr., they have be come dull, stale and unprofitable. Not to put too fine a point upon it, they have assumed the nature of a bore, and tlie people are weary of them. They prove nothing but the logical powers of their authors and they con vince no one of the guilt or innocense of the parties accused. The B.eeciier- Tilton scandal has reached a point where nothing can be proven—no charge sustained or refuted—outside of a court of justice. No unsworn state ment of the parties concerned will be credited. It is even doubtful that af fidavits will be accepted as fact where they do not prove what the reader wishes to believe. The Future of Los Angeles. Editor Herald: You and your contemporaries are in ecstacies over the recent visit of capitalists and what they say about our future; also the indications of their willingness to aid the enterprises now inaugurated which are calculated to develop our country. This is all very well, and we rejoice with you in tii is; but to secure the as sistance of our friends in these import ant enterprises it is necessary that our own citizens should become more act ive in this important work. We have strong men and capitalists among us, who ought to come to the front With subscriptions proportionate to their means. This done, there are hundreds of men of smaller means who will fol low their example. One united effort upon the part of the willing minds of our county will secure to us all we now hope for. This is our grand opportunity, which, if accepted in the proper spirit, will lead to great prosperity; but if we let it slip, the tide will ebb and we will be left to repeat the melancholy phrase, "It might have been." We nave made these remarks be cause we are satisfied that the prom ises of the capitalists, about which so much has been said, were made with a proviso. Old Resident. Loa Angeles, Sept. 17, 1874. BIG I«IEADOVVS\ A Rcaiilirul Oasis Ad jolnin;; the Great Desert — Its History — The Powell Brus - Indians— Game, Etc. The Big Meadows are located eighty-five miles from Los Angeles and near tlie old emigrant road, and they are the largest and finest in the nortnern part of the county, situated as they are, near the edge of the great American Desert. It is very singular for so fine a body of land and so large a creek of water to be found here. It is covered with a dense grove of willows, and a singnlar peculiarity is the in tense coldness of the water through out the entire year. In 1862 some copper mines were dis covered at this palce and several shafts were sunk, but the price of copper coming down, work was discontinued and has never since been resumed. While the copper mines were worked the Meadows were occupied by the noted robbers Henry and Mason aqd their band who were the terror of the country for several years, but when the mines were deserted the Meadows were abandoned on account of the hostility of the Indians.and continued vacant until tlie Summer of 1869, when they were again located by the Powell Bros., two hardy pioneers who did not fear the Indians and did not interfere with them, and com menced to improve the splendid Meadows. They started into the hog business at lirst but with in different success. They had often seen Indian signs in the vi cinity, but lived a year and a half at the Meadows before they came in on friendly terms. These Indians were kindly disposed towards the white neople. They had previously been very hostile and had frequently at tacked emigrant trains. The Powells succeeded in making a lasting peace between them and and the whites. They were almost naked, and were armed with bows and arrows, not hav ing any guns. People passing now feel perfectly safe. There la a great quantity of game at this place—bear, deer, antelope, lions and mountain sheep being abundant. Tlie mountains are very high and rug ged, and are covered with a forest of pines. There is a ritlge of earth thrown up near tlie meadows by the great earthquake of 1857 that extends tor many miles through the country. It bears evidence of the terrible convul sions of nature at that time. The near est settlement is Soledad, which is miles distant. The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad line crosses tlie desert near this place, and some day it will be brought into communication witli the outside world. Bear are very numerous at the Mead ows, and Mr. Powell was once treed by seven of them, und had a narrow escape for his life. He succeeded in killing one large she bear, which dressed seven hundred pounds. Tlie Powell Brow, sold the Meadows two y.ars ago aud star c i into the sheep business, when the land passed into tlie hands of a cattle man named Johnson, ai.d Is now occupied by a Spaniard. W. A. lIKOPHY. Big Meadows, Los Angeles county, Cal. Through the otTects of one of tlie numerous cloud-bursts of a few weeks ago, the Duval spring, forming tlie principal source of the Cerro Qordq water supply, is buried deep under the debris, and with it a pumping engine. Mr. Beaudry had purchased this prop erty but a short time previous. At the time the spring was buried up, Duval's house was washed away and I»is family barely escaped with their lives.— San Bernardino Argus, Sept. Wh. NEW TO-DAY.
