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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
