CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. TUESDAY OCT. 27, 1874. A good deal of dissatisfaction pre vails among those interested, on the action of the Judges in awarding tho second heat of the three-in-flve trot ting race yesterday. It is claimed that "Moor" broke as badly as " Echo," and though "Echo" came in two lengths ahead", the heat Was given to " Moor." We know nothing of the merits of the case. While visiting this city a few days ago, Messrs. Crocker and Colton did not announce it as the purpose of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company to Immediately extend the road be yond its present terminus at Spadra. They, however, went over the route to San Gorgonio Pass and after a thor ough examination of the country ex pressed themselves satisfied that the road ought to be completed as far as the Pass at as early a day as possible. The distance from Spadra to the pass is fifty-two miles, and as an order has been issued for the delivery of one hundred thousand ties at the end of the track, we conclude ■ that the road will be extended fifty miles at an early day. These ties are already go ing forward and the number ordered will build just fifty miles of track. Laying Their Plans. The plan of the campaign adopted by the old ring managers who have so long controlled the municipal govern ment of this city is beginning to de velop itself. They fancy themselves invincible, and a few of the less dis creet are boasting that they will elect their candidate for Mayor and a ma jority of the Council, despite the ef forts of citizens who would emanci pate the city from the thraldom of the old masters. The extra exertions of the ring to defeat Mr. Beaudry are manifest in every Ward, but they can not accomplish the task. The people will elect a Mayor who will consider the Interests of the city paramount to those of a private corporation, und the bitter fight the ring is making against Mr. Beaudry only proves to the masses that he is the man over whom as Mayor tho old masters feel that they will have no control. Azusa Tobacco. Mr. TiiOiMAS Perkins has shown us some cigars aud plug tobacco inauufac tured from tobacco grown this year at Azusa. The cigars appear to be of ex cellent quality, and wantonly the age necessary to dry them out to make them excellent smoking. The manu factured tobacco is pronounced a fine article by those who chew the weed. It is the opinion of Mr. Perkins, who, by the way, is an old tobacconist, that the soil and climate of Los Angeles valley is well adapted to the growth of tobacco. He estimates that at a cost not exceeding $40 each acre will pro duce two thousand pounds of tobacco, which will yield from twelve hundred to fifteen hundred pounds of the man ufactured article, worth from fifty to seventy-five cents per pound. In the curing of his tobacco, Mr. Perkins follows the old process aud avoids all patent schemes. An important item to tobacco growers is that in this val ley two crops are grown each year. Mr. Perkins says his second growth now coming on will be better In every respect than the first. How Water Rates are Fixed. There is much complaint concern ing the water rates of this city. All cause for dissatisfaction may be easily removed and we hope the company and the city will take the necessary steps to that end immediately. No Water Company has the right to fix the rates for water at pleasure. How these rates are to be agreed upon will be Been by reading the following sec tion of law. At its last session the Legislature amended section 549 ofthe Civil Code to read as follows: "All corporations formed to supply water to cities and towns, must mrnish pure, fresh water to the inhabitants thereof, for lamily uses, so long us the supply permits, at reas onable rates and without distinction of per son, upon proper demand therefor; and must furnish water to the extent of their menus In case'of Are other or great necessit v, free of charge. The rates to be charged for water must be determined by Commissioners to be selected as follows: two by the city and county or city ana town authorities, or when i here are no city or town authorities, by the Board of Supervisors of the county ana two by the water company; and In case a major ity cannot agree to the valuation, the four Commissioners must choose a flfth Commis sioner; if they cannot agree upon a fifth, then the County Judge of the county must appoint such flfth person. The decision of the ma jority of the Commissioners shall determine ihe rates to be charged for water for one year aud until new rates are established. "The Board of Supervisors or the proper city or town authorities, may prescribe proper rules relating to the delivery of water not incon sistent with the laws of the state." Thus it will be seen that If the Los Angeles Water Company have adopt ed rules and rates that are onerous and objectionable, tbe remedy lies with the people. The above is the law, and we presume the company will not object to its enforcement. Exaggerated Report. lv consequence of a statement made L»y the Exerting Express more for po litical effect than through a regard for facts, that the scarletina was raging among the children of this city al most to the extent of an epipemic, rumor has blown abroad the report that a great amount of sickness of a fatal character prevails among our little folks. The report has but the slightest foundation in fact. The scarletina is not an epidemic nor even a general cause of sickness here. But few deaths have occurred and tbenum ber of cases of illness from this disease reported is by no means great. The physicians are our authority for stat ing that that there is but little sick ness from scarletina in this city. Dr. Lucky, Superintendent of our city schools, has conferred with the teach ers of the different schools and informs us that the attendance of pupils has fallen off in but a small degree. There was no real cause for the alarm created by the report which obtained circula tion through the columns of our co temporary, aud it is tv be regretted that such a statement was permitted to go forth. Our Raisins. We yesterday examined the lirst box of raisins manufactured ut the Alden Fruit Drying Works of Geo. B. Davis la this city. It was a fine sight, and may be regarded as the first specimen of a business that will bring into this valley millions of dollars. We have now one of these factories which runs three sets of evaporators with v capac ity for turning out seven tons of dried fruit or raisins per day, and we ven ture to say that within the next two years at least half a dozen factories with an aggregate of twenty-five evapoiators will be In operation in Los Angeles valley. The daily earn ings of these evaporators will be im mense, and every dollar will be so much saved to our people. It is a matter of comment that the Alden dried fruit now manufactured in this State is not equal to the demand. The President of the California company writes to Mr. Davis that he is in daily receipt of orders for the fruit from the East, not one of which lie has yet been able to fill. With regard to the rai sins now being manufactured by Mr. Davis, we but repeat the expressed opinion of our grocery firms when we say that they are a superior article, more than meeting the most sanguine expectations of the most hopeful. These raisins are manufactured from our Mission grape, but owing to the great superiority of the Los Angeles Mission grape, both in size and sac charine matter, over that ofthe upper enmities, the raisin compares favor ably with the imported Malaga, and, as stated by Mr. Frank Pyle, Secre tary of the California company, who has superintended the construction of Mr. Davis' factory, isone hundred per cent, better, both in size and quality, than the raisin made from the Mission grape grown around San Francisco bay. This is high authority, as Mr. Pyle has been intimately connected with the raisin manufacture by the Alden process in Napa, Solano, Sono ma, Alameda and franta Clara coun ties. It is certain, and we are pleased to record the fact, that the Los Ange les Mission grape raisin must com mand at least one-third higher price both in the local and Eastern market than the raisin from the same grape grown in the more northern parts of the State. Owing to the lateness at which the factory commenced opera tions, Mr. Davis will not be able to make as general an exhibit in the Fair now progressing of Alden dried fruits as desirable, but he will show some fine samples of raisins, to gether with several other qualities of fruit. The Mission Indians— Colonisation. The San Diego Union of the 25th has the following: Mr. Chas A. Wet more left on the Orizaba last evening for Los Angeles, where he will meet the Catholic Bishop of this Diocese, for an interview concerning the Mis sion Indians. The plan proposd by Mr. Wetmore forthe management of these Indians is very warmly endors by all of our citizens, and its adoption is earnestly hoped for. It is believed to be the first practical scheme for the improvement of the condition ofthe Indians that has been presented, and no doubt is entertained of its success if put into operation. The Secretary of the Interior is to be congratulated upon his selection of a person so emi nently qualified in every way us Mr. Wetmore, to examine and report upon the condition and needs of the Mission Indiana. We understand that Mr. W. returns to Washington in a few weeks to resume his duties as agent of the American Press Associa tion. Raisins. Spain is the greatest producer of raisins. Those styled Valencia rai sins find great favor with all classes of English people. A few years ago a crop of 12,000 tons, for the supply of the world, was considered large; now London receives 12,000 tons out of a total of 20,000 tons that are grown. These raisins also find a large market in the United States and Canada. The improvement in the article most ob servable of late years is that of remov ing the stalk before shipment. As no useful purpose has been found as yet fer the stalks, they are generally burned. Muscatel, or table raisins, from Malaga, vary widely in quality. They are known as " layers," "bunch" and "loose" rai sins, the best being picked from the stalk. This sort is largely used in America. The finest growth of Mus catels come to this country in deco rated boxes, with colored paper and lace edgings, increasing the cost of packing to the extent of $125 per ton. The Sultana raisins, produced in Tur key, are cured in the sun, a slight sprinkling of oil being employed to prevent the too great evaporation of the moisture and assist in the preser vation of the fruit. The Germans are also large consumers of these raisins, and they constitute an article of traffic between Trieste and Smyrne. The Lake county lire says: 'The furnaces .erected by C. A. Luckardt, for the California Borax Company, at Sulphur Batiks, are proving quite a success. They produce daily from ten to fifteen flasks of quicksilver from t ie lowest grade ore. The Spring Valley .Mining Compa ny, near Orovilie has obtained the right of way to dig a canal to carry off the debris from their hydraulic claims, near Cherokee. The working of these mines has entailed much loss on farmers In the vicinity. Latest Telegrams. EASTERN. Official Vote ol ludlaua. Indianapolis, October 24th.— A full vote of the State shows a Democratic majority for Secretary of State of 17, --093. The Democrats elected Congress men in the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Seventh, Tenth and Twelfth Districts, and the Republi cans elected Members In the Sixth, Eighth, Ninth, Eleventh and Thir teenth. Hunter, in the Eighth, has only 181 majority, and Baker, in the Thirteenth, 58. A Nice ttoverutnent Detective Me Is Recognised as a Pirate and a tf ur derer. MOBILE (Al*.). October 24th.- Din ing the trial of Colonel Wetmore, one of the Sumter county prisoners, before [J. S. Commissioner Gillette, Hester, Utttted States detective and chief pros ecutor and witness for tho Govern ment, was instantly recognized by Captain Raphael .Semmes, who was present at the trial, as one of his crew ofthe steamer Sumter. Hester came forward at once and confessed the Captain's recognition by ofiering his hand. Hester was appointed Master's Mate by the Captain at Gibraltar. While a Midshipman he was tempo rarily in charge of the steamer. Cap tain Semmes stated that Hester shot and killed a messmate who was lying in his bunk, it was supposed asleep, and afterward escaped. In the trial to-day it was developed that subpoenas for witnesses were is sued by Commissioner Gillette, of Mobile, September 30th, two weeks before the offense was alleged to have been committed. New Italy lv Ye* York. New York, October 25th.—J. A. Johnson, editor of the Santa Barbara Press, will lecture next Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, at Cooper Insti tute, on Southern California, or New Italy, as he calls that region. Charles Nordhoffand others acquainted with the country named, say that Mr. Johnson is thoroughly familiar with the beauties and advantages of the land he lectures about. rilton's Suit against Becctacr. New York, October 24th.—There was a long argument to-day in the City Court, Brooklyn, on the motion of the counsel of Henry Ward Beech er to compel Tilton to present a bill of particulars in the suit against Beecher. The counsel read an affidavit from Beecher setting forth that the plain tiff specified but one date on which any act or improper conduct is said to have occurred. Tilton avers tbat Mrs. Tilton and Beecher confessed their guilt at different times. This Beecher positively denies and characterizes as utterly false, and fears that Tilton con templates the manufacture of evi dence at the coming trial, and, there fore, requests to know the testimony he has to refute. The Court took the papers. The Los Angeles Herald. This excellent daily paper, under the editorial management of James M. Bassett, formerly of Yreka, has just entered upon a new volume, and is the leading and most popular paper iv Southern California.— Yreka Jour nal October 2.lst. Pacific Coast items.

He was a large specimen, and the first of the kind seen in this vicinity for a long time. The site for the railroad depot nt Nevada City has been definitely fixed by tho surveyors. It is to be located on Sacramento street, near the resi dence of H. C. Mills.
