CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. WEDNESDAY OCT. 28, 1874. At St. John's Presbyterian Fair, held in San Francisco lately, the vis itors voted on which was the most popular newspaper In the city. At last accounts the Examinrr and Alia lod and were nearly even. The CAron icle stood third and last, while neither the Bulletin, Call nor Post were en tered in the list. Once more, and for the fortieth time, Hon. Chas. E. DeLono announces from the stump that he has not with drawn from the Senatorial canvass of Nevada. He affects to believe that something—a thunderbolt, an earth quake, or a Providential visitation in some other shape —will defeat Shar on. Charlie's hope is fallacious—a Will of the wisp. The only show to defeat Sharon is to elect a Democratic majority in the Legislature, and even then the majority must be men blind to the glitter of gold, or honest old William will make them see virtues in him that his recording angel never dreamed of. Those of our visitors who had occa sion to pass along or across Main street any time during yesterday, will form very curious ideas concerning the remonstrance of certain property holders, in which it was set forth that the street was in as good order as it could be placed. After the rain of Monday night, Main street was in a deplorable condition for traveling pur poses. The mud was deep — deep enough for any purpose—but its con sistency was not all that was desira ble. It was too thick for boats and too thin for wheeled vehicles. A stout man with high-topped boots could ford the thoroughfare if he was careful to keep on the riffles, but for women and children, or even weak men, to attempt the passage was simply to tempt Providence ; yet when the Council propose to improve the street the property - holders solemnly aver that it is in as good condition as it is possible the place It. Party Mud Slingers. If the Granger is compelled to de- j cide for which party's candidate he will vote from information obtained through reading the'partizan papers, he will have great difficulty In deter mining which ticket is most deserving of his support. The argument for and against is one of crimination and re crimination—of the kettle's denuncia tion of the pot's color. The Republi can journals aver that whatever is wrong is made no by tlie and the Democratic papers fill their columns with the exclamation "Thou canst not say we did it; we were not in authority." The Republicans re spond that the Democrats would have shown no cleaner hands than they, had the opportunity for plunder, mal fesance and other ugly business pre sented itself. It seems to be a case of "your another," and if the facts are ever reached it will not be accom plished through light shed by party organs. The Granger is not, however, so easily duped as party leaders would have us think. In this State the par ty record is a book within the reach of all, and the chronicles are so legibly written that all may read and under stand. The leaders may denounce each other and the organs may charge aud deny but all will not suffice. The honest voter has learned to read and think for himself. Men—especially the laboring men—have reached that stage in the scale of political progres sion when they will no longer accept as fact the unsustained assertion of a political leader or a partizan journal. They have learned the importance of demanding the proof and if it is not forthcoming from the party organ,they will satisfy themselves by applying to the independent journal, which they know speaks of party and candidates as it finds them, influenced by interest and unbiased by prejudice. With this source of information within his reach the Granger will turn from the partizan pleading and cast his vote for candidates that are honest and ca pable, recking little on which ticket their names appear. The Farmer and the Ring. The failure of Morgan's Sons, the accredited shipping agents of the Grangers, seems to be a matter for ex ultation on the part of that portion of the press which has never been able to see anything good In the Grange movement, aud there are not a few of those sapient gentlemen who are cry ing out " I told you so!" We have no disposition to argue the right or wrong of the policy adopted by the Arm that has just found itself compelled to sus pend business. A glance at the case inclines us to the opinion that the house of Morgan's Sons fell into an ambush laid for it by the wily old wheat ring managers, who would wil lingly spend a few million dollars to break up the system of protection guaranteed the fanner through the Grange organization. The Grange Agency secured a large amount of ton nage at figures which would have been considered reasonable under the ton nage monopoly. This contract system seems to have been the only weak and assailable point in the programme, and circumstances conspired to make the attack on this point very efleetive. The ring had also secured a large amount of tonnage, which at the rates they intended to charge they could not use, for the reason that they could not obtain the wheat to load it. Their plans were soon laid. They held their own tonnage and waited until the Grange agents had contracted for all the tonnage to be secured. They then reduced the rate of the tonnage under their control below the price at which Morgan's sons had contracted to pay ami commenced loading with wheat purchased at the price demanded by the farmers. This bit of strategy ena bled them to deliver wheat in Liver pool at a less figure than Moroan's SOll9 could afford under their tonnage contract. It was a clear case of over reach, and the pains and expense to which the ring went to accomplish their purpose only proves how anxious they were to destroy a system which completely broke up their old monop oly and prevented the continuance of a business by which they were realiz ing millions at the expense of the farmer. If, as is claimed by some of the monopoly organs, the Grange did not interfere with the purchase and profit of the ring dealers, it seems a bit of absurdity on their part to incur the expense and trouble they have to break up the Grange agency by bankrupting the house of Morgan's Sons. We are told in a tone and spirit of rejoicing that the farmers have lost heavily through the failure of their wheat agents. What is the aggregate of their loss we are not informed, and will con cede that it is a large amount, but large as it is, we do not believe it will foot up one quarter of the sum they would have been swindled out of had the ring been permitted to carry out their hitherto successful programme of purchasing the wheat at their own price. A new line of argument re cently adopted by the ring journals is the ringing of changes on the word "merchant" with the evident inten tion ol'creating an impression in the minds of the public that the merchant is the "middleman against whom the Grange is protecting the farmer. This would be a shrewd dodge, were it not so transparent that it will not de ceive a single well informed man. The Grange does not fight the merchant. Its warfare is with the ring and its agents, which are the real middlemen. We cannot discover the force of the argument against the Grange which some of our contemporaries affect to see in the failure of the house of Mor gan's Sons. Orange Culture In Los Angeles County. Editor Herald: Some three or four years ago I was requested by a gentleman resident of this city, to answer a letter Which he had received from a native of Los Angeles county, then a student at the Santa Clara Col lege, to whom application had been made for information respecting the culture of the orange in this county. The letter contained v number of in terrogatories which will in some re spects account for the form and char acter of the answer. A copy of the answer was at the time furnished the editor of the Star and published in that paper, but as there are at this time many persons engaging in the cultivation of the orange who were not residents of this county at that time, and who may not have read it, aud as it has been suggested to me that its re-publication might be accept able to many of your readers, 1 have revised and re-written it, and it is at your service if you think it worth printing in the Herald. J. J. "Warner. The orange tree in respect to the food which it obtains from the earth is a coarse feeder. It thrives well in a soil of vegetable mold, in micaceous and granite sands containing alkali (natron) aud but little clay or vegeta ble mold in gravelly clay and volcan ic soils. In respect to soil its chief requisites are warmth, friability and moistness. It does not flourish" in a wet cold soil, but in a dry soil it can not be irrigated to excess if the soil is kept loose and friable. While not readily aii'ected by the constituents of the soil traversed by its roots, the orange tree is extremely sensitive respecting the state and con dition of the atmosphere which sur rounds its limbs and foliage. A warm and serene atmosphere is its delight. It is propagated from seed. The orange trees of this county are mostly seedlings They are a long lived tree. They commence bearing when eight or ten years old. The oldest orchard in California is at San Gabriel. It has been in bearing more than fifty years, and the trees are still vigorous and fruitful, although they have not re ceived the best of treatment. From where the trees or seeds of that orch ard came I am ignorant, although, as the orchard was planted by Spanish Roman Catholic Missionaries, who came from Mexico through Peninsular California, which has been occupied by Jesuit Missionaries for many years previously, it is probable that the seeds were brought from Lower California. They might, however, have been brought from some one of the Mexican ports on the main. A large proportion of the orange trees of this county have been propagated from seeds from the San Gabriel orchard. There has been some importation of trees from the coasts of Mexico and Central America, and of seeds from the Society and other Islands of the Pacific, but I am not aware of any no table difference in the product of these trees from such a variety and wide apart sources. Within the past few years some few trees have been intro duced from China and Japan of a dif ferent variety. The seed is sown ami the trees culti vated in nurseries until they are from two to four years old, when they are transplanted into the orchard. They can be removed from the nursery and planted out at all seasons of the year, but the early part of Summer, after the ground has acquired a goed degree of warmth, is, whether correctly or not,most generally considered by those who have had the most experience the preferable season. Thirty feet apart is a common distance for planting the trees. It is the opinion of some per sons that the trees should be forty feet apart in order to permit the rays of the sun to have free and direct access to the ground, which they can have only in a limited degree after the trees are grown, if planted only thirty feet i asunder. As the trees will grow and flourish and bear as abundantly for a number of years at a less distance than thirty feet, it might be both economi cal and profitable, If the trees for planting are not too costly, to plant the trees only twenty feet apart, and subsequently as they grow and over shade the ground, remove one-half of the trees and make a new orchard, or sell them, as might be most desirable. With care, orange trees can be suc cessfully taken up and carried a con siderable distance and replanted, ufter they have come into bearing, without a loss of more than two crops. In transplanting from the nursery, where, to force the rapid growth In height of the young tree without re gard to the girth of the bole, they are cultivated in such close proximity that neither lateral branches or roots can grow, the tap or vertical roots should not be cut or broken, and the hole in which they are to be planted should be deep enough to admit these roots in their former or natural perpendicular condition. The lateral roots should not be deeply buried, but should be near the surface, so as to receive the heat communicated to the soil by the sun. With regard to the season of the i yearforthe transplanting of the orange tree with the least check to its growth, there are reasons for doubting the more prevalent practice of transplant ing late in the Spring or in the early part of the Summer, The best time for transplanting the orange, as well as other trees, being when the trees are at rest, or in that condition most nearly approaching a state of inactivity. While the circulation of the sap is the least active, and when it is descend ing rather than when the ascending current predominates. The roots of a tree cannot be separated from the soil without destroying a large number of their spongioles,and the damage sus tained by a tree in the process of trans planting, is in proportion to the num ber of spongioles it loses in the opera tion. If a tree is taken up when it is at rest, when the circulation of the sap, if not suppressed, is languid and the flow to the roots predominates, the loss of the spongioles will be less hurt ful, and new ones will be soon formed by the descending sap; while if, on the other hand, the tree is torn from the ground when the spongioles are strained to their utmost capabilities by the heavy and constant draft made Oil them by the leaves, every pore of which is distended in the work of ab sorption and exhalation, and while the upward flow is largely in excess of the downward flow, and the sap pro viders suddenly diminished in num ber, their connection with the source from which their supplies are derived severed, the tree must receive a shock from which every part of the organic system must suffer, and great exhaus tion of the tree will ensue before the supremacy of the downward flow can be secured and new rootlet9with their spongioles formed and its connections with the soil re-established, so as to furnish a sufficient supply of sap for its laboratories. It is not improbable that prac tical orange culturist9 may have reached an erroneous conclusion as to the best time for replanting from an error in their mode of planting out an orchard. It is not unusual in the replanting of a tree to plant the roots much deeper in the ground than they originally grew. If an orange tree, the roots of which require, in this lat itude, all the heat they can obtain from the sun, should be taken up in the fall or Winter season, and instead of being replanted at the same depth in the soil which it previously occu pied, should be buried much deeper, so that the roots received no warmth from the sun during the Winter and not until the heat of the Summer's sun had penetrated the soil down to where they had lain buried in the cold for so long a period, it would not be surprising if the tree should suffer more by the operation than if it had i eemained in its original position until the soil in which it is destined to have its roots buried had acquired some warmth from the late Spring and early Summer 9un. fTo be concluded to-morrow.] Mutual Aid Election.
