The workmen at Mr. Longstreel's v eil are progressing successfully, and the water is increasing so much that the lifter, of 12,000 gallons per hour capacity, is Insufficient to enable the workmen to go farther.

The Zanjero informs us that the water was turned off from the zanja on Main street, south of Washington, some days since in order to allow the construction of a culvert ordered by the Council and the inconvenience thereby caused to residents in that lo cality was unavoidable. Tho zanja now has its full supply of water again. In addition to the four cottages being erected by Messrs. Beaudry and Temple on Temple street, Mr. Beau dry is preparing to build three others ou tho corner of Third and Charity streets. If wo had a few more such men as Messrs. Temple and Beaudly people would not be compelled to leave the city on account of not being able to find houses for their families. The Japanese Troupe gave their last peformanee in the city last night. The audience was not so large as on the former evenings, in consequence of insufficient notice of the additional performance, but there was a fail house, and the interest was not allowed to flag. In every respect the enter tainment was up to its standard of ex cellence, and none could have gone away dissatisfied with it. Considering the fact that this troupe has performed in our city for five consecutive even ings, drawing unusually large houses throughout, a great deal of merit must be awarded to them, for none but the best could possess such attractions. To-night they will give an entertain ment in Wilmington, and thence pur sue their way northward. We can but wish them all, with tho affable Mar shall at their head, the best of success and no broken bones while continuing their performances. Common Council Proceedings.

The report was accompanied by the City Treas urer's receipt for the several amounts reported. Placed on file. Tbe Board of Publio Works reported witli the following recommendations, which were acted upon separately: Ist. Thai a sewer be constructed on Fort street, between Second and Third, to connect with Ihe Main street sewer, in accordance with the petition pre sented al the last meeting. A protest from property-owners was presented against the construction of said sewer. On motion, tho mailer was referred back to the Board of Public. Works, in Conjunction with the City Surveyor, to ascertain if the protestants own two thirds ofthe propertjr along tins line of the proposed Improvements. 2d. That the matter of the grade on Fort street, between Second and Third, be referred to the City Surveyor to es tablish a grade in that locality which will do the least injury to the property along tho line of said improvements ami conform to the same to the best advantage. Adopted. Bd. That a grade submitted with the report in form of resolution be estab lished along the line of (he Springnnd Sixth Street Railroad, between Third and Pearl streets, the same being (he grade its previously reported to the Council by tho City Surveyor. On motion, the recommendation, with resolution, was adopted. A report was received from the special committee appointed to confer with the Eos Angeles Water Compa ny in relation to tho construction of a reservoir on Fort hill by said compa ny. The committee stated that the continuation of Fort street over the hill would interfere with the construc tion of such reservoir audrecommend ed that said street bo closed where it passes over Fort hill and the Water Company be required to continue a street around theirworks. Dr. Griffin, the President of the Water Company, addressed the Council, making state ments and explanations concerning the proposed work. Mr. Workman moved that the report be received and tho committee; allowed further time to draw up conditions with the Water Company in conjunction with the Cily Attorney before positive ac tion is* taken. "Amended that the whole Council proceed to examine the grounds in question in addition to the action of the committee. Carried |JS amended. A report W»H received from the Committee on Zanjas, stating tiiat in accordance with instructions from the Council, they had proceeded on the lOtli instant to formally turn over tho possession'of the canal and reservoir dit 'li to the agent of the Hernard Brothers in accordance with contract; that •aid ditch was in good condition :'.t the time of delivery and so accept ed by the agent. Report accepted. Mr. Workman moved that an ap propriation of $100 be made for the cleaning and improvement of zanjas. Carried. By permission Mrs. Smith addressed the" Council requesting that prompt action l>e taken in the matter of grad ing fort street In the fear of high school property, as such street is impassable during the Wei season and greatly mc c mvenlences the residents in that neighborhood. A. petition was received from the City Water Company signed by Dr. Griffin, the President, asking of the city the use of lot No. 8 in block C, Fort Hill, upon which a portion of the reservoir would have to be built, the lot to be granted uder the previous re strictions of the company's franchise. On motion, the matter was referred to tiie Committee on Bands. The pe tition of the Water Company regard ing the improvement of zanja from Steams' mill to Marchessault street was referred to the Committee on Zanjas. By permission Judge King addressed the' Council on behalf of Messrs. E. Gay & Co., relative to the Construc tion of tiie Main street sewer. He stated that the proposition on behalf of the Council for Messrs. Gay & Co. to accept assessments against property owners in payment for the construc tion of said sewer would not be ac cepted, but tho original contract would be enforced; that work would be commenced on tho sewer to-mor row, and the contractors would look to the city for payment. Mr. Workman moved that the de mand of Messrs. Gay & Co. be denied. Judge King then stated that all the contractors would require would be the payment for work as fast as the assess ments can be collected from property owners. This arrangement being sat isfactory to the Council, the motion was dismissed without action. The City Surveyor reported the es tablishment of lines of Alameda street in accordance with the order of tho Council for widening the same. On motion, the Clerk was instructed to publish a notice of intention to widen said street, 10 accordance with law. A report was received from the Board of Health representing that the sanitary condition of the city requires the maintenance ofthe Health < Ulice, as much now as at any time of the year, and recommending that Dr. J. 11. McKoe be appointed such Health Officer for a term of two months, or during the continuance of the present municipal government. Mr. Mascarel thought that such ac tion would require a reconsideration of the previous action taken by the Council vacating the Health Ollice. lie also thought that the ottice was unneeeAary, it being the duty of the Marshal and police forco to see that the city is kept in a cleanly condi tion. A spirited debate followed, when the report of the Board of Health was re jected by the following vote: Ayes—Huber, Sabichi, Workman. Noes —Valdez, Gerkens, Chavis, Mas ca rel. Mr. Sabichi, on the part of the Board of Education, reum-sted tho lo cation and assignment of lots for school purposes by the city, as pre viously petitioned for by said Board.

An ordinance was presented amend tttory and Mlpp'eimnlary tn an ordi nance providing for the sale of land by the city fWf delinquent tar.es.

Co-operative Store Experiment. Soon after the establishment of Ihe Order of Patrons of Husbandry, the people began to experiment with co operative stores. These experiments were first started in the Western States, and many of them proved fail ures. The cause of failure lay in the details of operation, and not in the fundamental principles of co-opera tion. In establishing the Grange Co operative Company of Los Angeles, these failures were carefully studied, and the causes leading to the failures carefully avoided. The wisdom of the present plan of operation is plainly 11 --i lust rated iv the success of tho main , store in this city, which lias just com pleted three months of trade, The j amount of sales during the throe months have aggregated nearly $20, --000; goods have been sold at a small j margin of profit above cost, reducing the price of groceries in this city from ten to flfteeq 111l 11 ' 1 ' cent, and even as high as twenty per cent, below tiie prices in vogue previous to the first of last July, ll'thepeoplo have saved an average of even ten per cent, (and stockholders have saved much more than that) the saving to the people who traded at the store would net the moderate little sum of $2,000 saved during the three months. Nor is this all: the price of goods have comedown all over the county, and a great saving lias been made at the other stores, so that the people have savei several thousand dollars to themselves in the purchase of groceries, etc., since the opening of the Grange Stoic on the 4th ot July. Not only have the stockholders got goods much cheaper than anyone else, but their stock has been making them money beside*. The inventory taken on the lirst of October showed that the nut profit of the store, even at the low price charged for goods, had made the stockholders a profit of $2 20 per share on the stock sold, after pay ing all running expenses. There had been live dollars paid on each share, and the next payment of live dollars per share had been partly paid in. The showing was eminently satisfac tory to all parties concerned, and so well pleased are the stockholders that they are anxious to secure more capi tal and enlarge the business, selling other linos of goods. J. H. Seymour, the General Man ager, lias just gone to San Francisco, and the result of his trip will be given in our next issue. Mr. Seymonr is be coming more popular every day with the masses, and each day convinces the company more strongly of the fact that they have the right man in the Hght place. — Mutual Aid fur October. Spanish Items. We translate the following items from our esteemed contemporary, La Cronica: An Italian, named Peter Martin, aged fifty-two Years, died a few days since at the mines of Lorenzo Austri aco and Temple, on the road to Fort Yuma about sixty miles from this city. He came from Australia in 1852, and leaves a large family in his country. The Hon. Valentino, Judge of Low er California, paid us a visit the other day en route for San Francisco. We have bad news from our editor in chief, E. F. De Oolis. he is in San Francisco enjoying himself, attending to business, and in hopes of being among us soon. Mr. John C.
