CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY SEPT. 22, 1874. Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has elected Democratic municipal officers for the first time since 1858. An up-country editor lias found a spring wdiich eradicates worms. For the sake of his subscribers, we bore he will keep away from that spring. Senator Carl Snn k/. has an nounced hit determination to stamp Missouri for the People's ticket. He is a power in tlie land. There is to bo no more extension of railroad in the San Joaquin valley this season. The graders have all left the vicinity of Bakersfleld. The Ihikersfield Courier thinks the building of the Los Angeles and In dependence Ilailroad will do "some thing" towards enabling Los Angeles to retain the mining trade which properly belongs to tho Courier's town. Those gentlemen who do not want Uncle Billy Sharon iv the United States Senate should remember that the Government is sadly in want of financial brains. Senator Jonls made the only sensible financial speech of the last session and perhaps in Sha ron Nevada will furnish another able financial Senator. Theiie is a sort ot crazy chap writ ing the editorials for the San Francisco Post, who declares that we shall reach the highest degree of prosperity only when we have placed the burden of taxation solely on land. This loony individual never owned a foot of land in his life. An editorial writer on the Chicago Tribune asserts that we can only attain the highest degree of pros perity when the present system of tax ing land is abolished. We presume this last editor owns land. One of these gentlemen does not know what he is talking about, and the other talks about wrtit he does not under stand. Their Name is Legion. The degree of success which has of late attended the efforts of the Demo cratic party in a number of the East ern States has infused new lift' into that organization in this State, and they are not few in numbers who really believe that the election next Fall will place California once more under Democratic domination. With " the grand old party " the number of candidates for office is always in pro portionate ratio with the chances for election; and as the chances are favor able, or appear to be so, for a Demo cratic victory, the number of old pat riots willing to serve the dear people in the capacity of State officers al ready offering themselves is really frightful to behold. They are like un to the locusts of Egypt in numbers. The leaders of the " purest and the best" are not dismayed. A few re verses over yonder cannot, discourage the faithful who have rode into office for the Union's sake since 1801. It does not seem possible to them that tlie nation can exist without their val uable services. They expect to win the fight once more. There is no lack of Republican candidates for any of llce within the gift of the people. From town-beadle to the Chief Exec utive, they are all engaged. The In dependents are not demonstrative and as yet candidates are not numerous; but those whose names we hear men tioned are men of weight and influ ence—men in whom the people may trust without fear of betrayal. The leaders will soon begin to marshal their hosts, aud we shall then know tho strength of the contending armies. Downey City. There have been complaints that land is held too high in this valley; that the prices asked are extravagant and discouraging to new comers, many of whom are compelled, through their limited means, to seek homes in other localities. There is no doubt, some reason for these complaints. Some of our land-owners imagine that it is a part of their duty to demand exhorbitant prices, even if they do fail to make a sale. They will learn bet ter by and by, but to-day an opportu nity is offered by which those who wish to purchase land at a reasonable rate may secure what they desire, in defiance of the land Shylocks. Dow ney City is located at the present ter minus ofthe railroad, which will soon extend from this city to Anaheim. The great auction sale of town lots takes place in Downey City to-day. A train will leave here this morning, by which those wishing to attend the sale may go down and examine the property. Downey City is located in the heart of tho richest body of land in the world. The products of the soil seem fabulous, and must be seen to be believed. The Los Nietos country is the wonder of all visitors. Downey City is a growing, thriving village, and in a very short time it will be a tree-embowered town, surrounded for miles and miles with orchards, groves and vineyards. The whole section will produce almost anything without irrigation, but it is well supplied with water, should it be needed. To those wishing land, every foot of which is of the richest soil, we would say at tend the auction sale of town lots in Downey City to-day. Los Angeles Raisins. Fully live months ago the Hekald gave a detailed account of the Aides fruit drying process and set forth the advantages offered by this valley to any one who would establish one of these factories here. The statement attracted the attention of wide-awake men abroad, and one day we received a notification that Mr. George B. Davis of Oakland had purchased the right of the Alden process for this county and would erect and set In op eration in this city a factory contain ing three of tlie most approved evapo rators. Mr. Davis arrived in due time, and the building is erected and the machinery being placed in posi tion as fast as possible! The site se lected for the factory is on the eastern bank of the river, near the bridge. The location is high and well adapted for the purpose for which it is to bo used. Tiie building is four stories high and ample in proportions. Mr. Frank Pyle, the Secretary of the California Alden Fruit Drying Company, arrived several days since and is superintend ing the placing of Mr. Davis' ma chinery, and will remain here until the evaporators arc in satisfac tory operation. These evaporators are three in number, and their aggregate drying capacity is about seven tons of green fruit per day. The factory will turn out about two tons of raisins every twelve hours. This allusion to raisin reminds us to mention that the Los Angeles Alden manufactured raisin will undoubtedly prove at least thirty three per cent, larger and richer than those produced in other portions of the State. This fact results from the great superiority of our grape. Mr. Pyle, who is excellent authority on the sub ject, is confident that this will be the case. He has carefully examined what we call the Mission grape, and pronounces it so much better than the Mission grape of Solano county that there is no comparison between the two. He does not believe that what we call the Mission grape is of the same variety as that called the Mission grape in the counties around San Francisco bay. Mr. Pyle is inclined to call the common grape of Los An geles valley a species of the Black Mor rocco. He finds it to contain a much greater amount of saccharine matter than the common Mission grape, and as it is fully double the size, be side being perfectly developed, he is satisfied that the product of Mr.Davis' factory will be greatly superior to that of establishments in other parts ofthe State. This is very gratifying intelligence both to Mr. Davis who has purchased the county right and expended a large amount in establish a factory here, and to those of our citi zens who have large vineyards of the common grape. The raisins manufac tured in Los Angeles valley will com mand a premium both in San Fran cisco and in the Eastern market. Mr. Davis' evaporators will be in opera tion within the next twenty days, when we have no doubt the predic tions of Mr. Pyle will be fully ver ified. Cremation. The annual mortality of Vienna amounts to about 20,000. The public authorities have decided that the cre mation of the dead should bo carried into operation. They reckon on mak ing a great saving as well as consider able benefit to the public health by burning the dead. People are begin ning to read such paragraphs as the above in the daily papers without a shudder. This only shows how rap idly public opinion can change. Twen ty years ago the refined class of civil ized society would have swooned away at the thought of being burned to ashes after death. In those days the bodies of the dead were treated more tenderly than an infant. Any rough ness in handling the corpse was shock ing to the friends and bystanders. We shall never forget an incident which occurred in Arkansas some twenty five years ago. A tall old man had settled in the swamps of that State at an early date, and had supported his family on tlie products of his rifle until his children were grown, fought his last battle with the bear and gave up the ghost. Of course all the neigh bors came to the funeral the day fol lowing. The hour had arrived for the funeral, but the coffin had not yet ar rived from town. The company, how ever, waited patiently with the af flicted family, and about two hours after the appointed time (which was about 4 o'clock p.m.) the coffin ar rived. It was placed by the side of the corpse and the body laid in it. The coffin proved to be too short—the old man's heels stuck out about five inches. This disconcerted the whole crowd. It was now too late to send for another coffin; besides, the parties who brought it declared "that it was the largest box that could be found in town." The old lady and girls began to cry at an awful rate, while the neighbors gathered in groups around the yard to hold consultations. A son of the de ceased, a tall, angular young man, with his pants iv his boots and his hands in his pockets, stood around looking at the condition of affairs for some time, finally straightening him self and said, "I can fix that," and walked out of doors, and picked up an old chop-axe that lay in the yard, and walked back with it in his hand; before anyone had time to speak be struck the old gentleman a couple of blows across the shins, and broke them short oil—with his left hand turned his feet over into the coffin and said '-now he's all in, ye can screw him up." The scene that followed was indescribable. The women all screamed, the men were shocked and enraged. They were seriously talking of mwbbing the young man. After consultation, however, they concluded not to molest the poor boy as "he had no better sonse," This young man was only a little in advance of his age. Our refinement will soon overtake him. Vienna is quite up to him now. Card ol Thanks. Editor Herald: Before leaving Los Angeles for the further prosecu tion of my missionary duties, T beg leave to tender my thanks to the press of Los Angeles for the prompt and generous aid afforded in facilitating the enterprise by gratuitous notices and kind comments. We hope ever to appreciate the value and importance of the press, of which Chateaubriand remarked, " The press is tlie word, and the word made the world." I will avail myself also of your kindness to acknowledge with * gratitude the marked respect shown by the citizens during the open-air and church ser vices in the English and Chinese lan guages, which speaks well for Los An geles. This being my first visit, 1 dare not trust myself in expressions of admira tion which I feel in view of the present and manifest elements of future great ness to which this county is destined through its commerce and remarkaMe climate and productions. Very respectfully yours, John Fkan< is. Oregon Items. A large two-story hotel is being built at Weston. Hop - picking has commenced in Lane county. A large number of In dians are employed. The harvest in eastern Oregon is now entirely over. The yield in that section is less than last year. The first meeting of the stockholders of the Willamette Valley and Coast Railroad Company, for the election of Directors will be held at tlie Court house in Corvalles on the 17th day of October. A party of prospectors who have been prospecting in the Blue moun tains and over as far as the Snake River country, returned lately and re port the discovery of gold, but not in paying quantities. The Oregon State Fair will begin on Monday, October 12th, and continue six days. Washington County Fair will be held at Hillsboro'. September 28th. Five thousand dollars in prem iums are offered. Lina County Fair will be held at Albany from the 6th to the 10th of October, inclusive. The preminm list for this Fair amounts to $7,000. Last week Put Smith, now of Walla Walla, but formerly of Portland, sold five five full-blood merino bucks to Charles Jewell, State Senator-elect from I'matilla county, for $90 each, or $450 for the lot. One buck, whose fleece had been left on him in order to show its character as to length, fine ness and quality, was sheared on his arrival at his new home and the fleece weighed 18 pounds. The Territories. Wheat is one dollar per bushel at Boise City. The ruling price for wheat at Walla Walla is 35 cents per bushel. Rev. G. L. Whiteworth has taken charge of the Territorial University, at Seattle. It is estimated that the wheat crop in Montana this year is fifty per cent, less than last, and tlie oat crop 33 per cent. less. The officers at Fort Russel do not credit the report that gold will be found in any considerable quantities in the Black Hills. Apples are selling in the Helena market at $7 to $8 per box of 50 pounds; California grapes retail atone dollar a pound; peaches at 75 cents; pears, tlie same. So much coal in excess of means of transportation lias been taken out at the Tenino mines that the working force has been considerably reduced. A Black Hills transportation line is being organized at Bismarck. Eighty teams are ready for the work. The fare from Bismarck to tlie Black Hills will be $100, and each passenger will be allowed 200 pounds of baggage. The charge for hauling freight will be 15 cents per pound. NEW TO-DAY.
