THE ANNUAL FAIR. I Two Exciting Bacet at the Track what la to be Neon nt Ihe "Rink"— The Annunl Adilr«»« by Uovernar Downey. [second DAT.] The annual Fair of the Southern District Agricultural Society Is now at its height and success is assured. Our hotels are thronged and visitors by the score are here from all sections of Sonthern California, with a large delegation from San Francisco and the upper coast. AT THE RACE TRACK. The heavy rains of the preceding night very materially interfered with yesterday's performances at the racing grounds. The chill air kept many ladies from the races and the heavy track caused many of the sterner sex to forego the pleasures of the promised t rials of speed. The attendance was about as large as on Monday; had the elements been favorable, at least twice as many would have been on the grounds. To-day the track will be in first-class condition and a big crowd may bo expected as the races for the day promise to be of unusual interest. THE FIRST RACE Was for trotters, free to all three-year olds, mile heats to harness, best two in three, for a purse of $300; $180 to first, $80 to second and $40 to third. The entries were as follows: L. J. Rose enters b, g. Tommy Gates, sire tho Moor, dam unknown. Oscar Macey enters blk. m. Morri tea, sire the Moor, dam unknown. White Feet,another son of t he Moor, had been entered by Lawyer Sanford, but did not put in an nppearance at the call from the judges' stand. Before the horses had been called to ■the scratch the pools sold in Tommy Gates' favor at odds of $40 tosls. The mare won the pole and a fair start was secured. After an even and capi tal race around the first turn Tommy Gates went to the front, making the first quarter in 4" seconds, and at least twenty yards in advancs. The half mile was made in 1:25, without any change in the position of the contes tants. The mare made strenuous ef forts to close the gap, but the bay in creased the distance and went under the pole at least twenty lengths in ad vance. Time 3:20. The backers of Morritea did not come to the front after this heat, as it was clearly manifest that Tommy Gates, who has trotted a mile in '48, had a sure t hiug on first money. On the second heat, Tommy Gates to the pole, Morritea started out slightly in advance, but the gelding closed in on her and shot ahead, passing the quar ter pole several lengths in advance. This gap was maintained until on the last quarter when Tommy Gates made excellent speed, going under the j wire just about as far ahead of the I mare as in the first heat, thus securing both heats and the race. Time 3:19. SUMMARY. Southekn District AaRTCULTVfi aI Society, Los Angeles, October 2oth.—Trotting ; free for all three year-olds; mile heats, to harness, best two in three. Purse, $300; $180 to .first, $80 to second and $40 to third. L. J. Lose named b. g. Tommy Gates 1 1 Oscar Macey names bl. in. Morri tea 2 2 Time, 3:20; 8:19, THE RUNNING RACE Was the next in order, free for all three-year-olds raised and owned in the District; mile heats, best two in three, for a purse of $300—$180 to first, SSO to second and $40 to third. in the pool selling Regent was the favorite at long odds. The entries were as follows: Geo. A. Johnston enters b. c. Re gent, by Lodi, dam Eva Coombs. B. F. Bragg enters b. f. Nellie Gray, by Tenbroeck, dam unknown. John D.Young enters s. g. Shark, by Gray's Stark, dam unknown. Wm. R. Rowland enters blk. c. Care less, by Tenbrceck, dam unknown. Regent secured the position at the pole, Shark next, Careless next and Nellie Gray on the outside. Regent on the start shot ahead, the other three well locked close behind; at the quarter-pole Shark shot ahead and at the half-mile was sido by side with Regent and these two had a good and close run to the third quarter, when Regent shot ahead and passed the score about three lengths in advance of Shark ; Careless third and Nellie fourth, both about a length behind Shark. Time, 1:54 J. The pluck of Shark was exceedingly gratifying to his backers, but at the pools Regent was still the favorite at odds of $50 to $8 on the field. The second call was sounded and the horses went off in good style. At the quarter-pole Careless was in the front but all close together and at the half mile three of them were in a bunch, with Nellie in the rear. Here Regent shot to the front aud maintained the lead to the goal, coming in several lengths ahead, although Shark and Careless, spurred by the whip, made a good run to the home base. Time, [:54ft. Shark, it is reporteJ, by some mis take, carried thirty-three pounds extra weight on this heat. The judges gave second money to Shark on the ground that Careless' rider had been guilty of foul riding. They maintained that on rounding the first turn Careless, being next to the outside, nad cut in and se cured the pole. In so doing shortening the stride of both Regent and Shark and materially impeding the progress of these two horses. SUMMARY. Southern District Agricultcr al Society.

AT THE KINK Last night there was a fair assem blage of ladies and gentlemen. The rink was finely lighted and the dis play most satisfactory. After the vis itors had examined the many articles on exhibition, Gov. Downey, the Pres ident of the Association, was intro duced and delivered the annual ad dress. He commenced his remarks by congratulating our people upon the prosperous and satisfactory CONDITION OF THE ASSOCIATION. The grounds have been improved and rendered more attractive, and it is the intention of the Society to con tinue from year to year planting such trees as will be found adapted to our climate, useful as well as beautiful, and demonstrate here what might be done throughout the entire district. It is not an over estimate to place the value of our lands at $32,000, and our improvements at the lowest figure at $18,000, making the property of the Association worth $50,000. A LICK AT THE STATE. Great fault is found with the State Legislature in refusing to the Associ ation the little aid heretofore extend ed, hut the stockholders have nobly responded to meet all demands and magnanimously agreed to enable new-comers to purchase the unsold stock on the original basis although worth more than its par value —and this is done with a view to extend its usefulness and popularity. We con tribute profusely to the State but get little in return. Notwithstanding the salubrity of our climate and our ex quisite productions, if there be a State institution to be located, the people of Alaska could claim it as successfully as we. They had no hesitation in granting at one dash $15,000 of our money to be added to the grand stand at Sacramento, an institution that has already received large ami extrava gant sums. If this thing continues, the Governor maintained that South ern California will have to SET CP BUSINESS FOR HERSELF, For as it now is we are only recog nized as fit subjects for taxation, and that without representation. We can't get any representation in Congress and even in the matterof State Legis lators are cheated. JUST LOOK AT US! Los Angeles is the leading county in many branches of industry—in sheep raising, wine and brandy and Indian corn and tropical fruits, and but two counties exceed us in the most pre cious of all products—our school chil dren. In the number of our schools and the efficiency of our teachers there are none who exceed us, in proportion to our means? and number of inhabit ants. But the progress we have made in all that renders life agreeable is visible everywhere. We lead the van in the utilization of the water of our streams. We are second to none in our efforts to successfully extract the hidden resources of the earth and bring to the surface by means of artesian wells the life-giving fluid that has added so much in the last four years to the material wealth of Los Angeles county. We have adorned and beau tified THE CITY OF LOS ANOELES By the introduction of pure water for domestic and hygienic purposes, en abling us to beautify our grounds with ornamental trees, flowers, grass-plots and shrubbery, and this at extraor dinary expense. Our houses are fur nished with gas. We have built noble school - houses, established libraries, spanned our streams with noble bridges and submitted to be taxed to aid in the construction of railroads, with a view of making this county a center for a great system, which is now being accomplished and the bene fits of which we are beginning to real ize. Through the energy of our citi zens we have procured the means from Government of making our roadstead a commodious harbor, anil the pro ductive energy of our people has INCREASED OUR TONNAGE At such strides that we are now the second in this respect on the sea coast of the State. At the time we organ ized this Association, four steamers per month did the business .of the coast. We have them now daily, and they are not sufficient for the demands of trade, and this picture is applicable to all parts of our Southern coast. Our wealth and population have doubled in four years. HARD SPECIE FOREVER. The speaker maintained that our hard money standard has saved us from panic and commercial disasters amid the ruin we have witnessed befall older communities. Our example will soon lead the nation to specie pay ment. It can easily be done. Silver should be made as much a standard of value as gold and a legal tender for any amount. Our Gold Note Banks should be established all over the country. PROTECT OUR INDUSTRIES. He maintained that industriea must be protected, to protect and elevate labor. It Is a great mistake to think that free trade will benefit the labor ing man. Our manufacturers cannot compete with Europe. The free trade theory 18 a scheme of Great Britain to ruin us. We must have a just and equitable protective system and attract the skilled labor of the world to our shore. THE SMALL FARM POLICY. The multiplication of small farms in the District is the safest promise for the futurp. These small farms will insure a variety of crops and develop and utilize our water system, which, above all, is worthy of the highest consideration of the patriot, humani tarian and philosopher. We have good soil everywhere, on tho hilltop and valley. Moisture is the consider ation to be added, and should engage the ingenuity ami skill of our people. Los Angeles is the NATURAL BOMB OC THE GRAI'E. It thrives better, grows larger and sweeter here than anywhere else. The dryness of our climate at the period of maturing and gathering guarantees a crop of excellent quality, free from disease or mildew. The long contin ued Summer heat favors the develop ment of grape sugar and aromas, and should necessarily warrant a most ad mirable quality of wine. If we have not the experience in making an ac ceptable and palatable table wine, it is not the fault of our soil or climate. We should sendour sons to France and the Rhein country and regularly ap prentice them to the business. We have now the experience before us that vines which have here been fruiting for sev enty years still continue to yield with out ever having missed a crop in their long life of productive usefulness. One acre of our soil will produce more than anywhere else and at a less cost and sounder and freer from disease. Why not then rival France in this great branch of wealth? It will only require the Intelligent effort of our people to so make it. I regard this source of our wealth in this District as destined to surpass all others. Let each farmer plant a few acres in grape-vines. horses and tobacco. After setting forth the advantagts that result from horse - racing, the speaker called attention to tobacco culture. Our new industry, tho to bacco crop, will prove one of great value. The superiority of the article now produced is beyond question. The adaptability of our soil and climate for producing a delicate ami highly fla vored quality is no longer a question; it is a solved fact, The value perpounil of a good article of tobacco is so much greater than that of any of the cereals, or even that of the fruits or wine, that it will well bear thecostof transporta tion, freights and commissions, leaving such a margin of profit to the producer as to justify our people in engaging in its cultivation to such an extent as will warrant the belief that before many years it will be one of our most valuable exports, besides keeping much money at home heretofore sent abroad for cigars and tobacco. We will have large factories devoted to the manufacture of it Into the various forms in which the article is so exten sively used, thus giving employment to our people and tending to increase she circulation of money among our laboring and mercantile classes. THE PERORATION. The pleasure of living in a country like this, where all men are the arbi ters of their own forturnes and social positions, is great, and has an irresist ible charm for that manhood developed in this ninetßenth century, the civil ization of which stands out in grand relief in comparison with the past, marking distinctly our humanity in contradistinction to the bigotry and fanatacism that made life a torture to the bulk of those of our race who have 6<>r.o boforo ua. Let us not forget that we have a duty to perform; that our proudest ambition should be to ad vance the happiness of our race, and to inculcate the divine maxim of Him who never said anything without a divine significance, "Let m love one another, THE DISPLAY. In the absence of a more appropri ate building, the Rink—by far the largest auditorium in the city—has been extemporized as a pavilion for the exhibition of the art department of the Fair. All of the available space in the large gallery was engaged some time before the beginning of the present week and the exhibitors were actively employed in arranging their goods in place during Monday and Tuesday. Last evening everything was in order and the result proved a very creditable exhibition, if not, a full, there was at least a fair, showing of farm and orchard products, works of art, manufactures, machinery mu sical instruments, etc. The wails of the hall were decoratel with speci mens of line-art, ladies' needle-work and fancy articles. Along the four sides goods were arranged for exhibi tion to the best advantage, anil also through the centre of the hall. Pass ing to the right from the entrance, the attention was first attracted by a fine display of dried fruits from THE ALDEN FRUIT DRYING WORKS of Mr. Geo. B. Davis. Arranged in boxes of convenient size with glass covers were samples of dried apples, pears and grapes so inviting in their appearance as almost to make one's mouth water upon seeing them. The apples and pears were cut into thin circular slices by machinery designed for the purpose, and were dried with a cleanly and fresh appearance altogeth er unknown to that prepared by the old process. Mr. Davis informed us that this fruit was still on the trees last Monday morning. It was picked, prepared and dried in one day—tho drying process being performed in three hours, and the whole ready packed in boxes Tuesday morning. The raisins exhibited were those made from the Mission grapes only, Mr. Davies not having sufficient time to prepare specimens from Muscat grapes as he desired. The raisins were pre pared in about six hours after enter ing the evaporators. Owing to the late date at which the works were completed and placed in operation, the exhibition of dried fruits was not so extensive as might have been desired, but was nevertheless the finest collec tion of the kind which has ever been made in Los Angeles, and augurs fa vorably for tho future success of this important enterprise. Miss Hattie Lehman has some very pretty tidies aud other samples of cro chet work displayed on the wall im mediately back of Mr. Davis' fruits. Caswell & Ellis make a fine display of fancy groceries, canned and boxed, fruits, etc. Fisher & Thatcher display an ele gant silver plate, with elaborate carv ing, as a specimen of the work done in their establishment. Good judges pronounce it one of the best, if not in tact the very best, work of the kind to be found in the State. [A full descrip tion of the carving was given in the Herald a few days since, so we omit a more particular description of the design and artistic execution.] Herberger 4 Johannes have arrang ed upon a platform carpeted with brussells an elegant display of furni ture of their own manufacture. The upholstery is of a rich blue satin with gold flowers, and the woodwork of a dark rosewood, elegantly carved. The set consists of four chairs, two arm chairs, and a sofa of this pattern and a lounge of another style. The whole collectton forms a specimens of home manufacture which would be difficult to excel in any city. Mrs. Devise exhibits some fine spec imens of handiwork arranged in frames to represent baskets of flowers and wreaths, constructed of sea-moss, shells, delicately colored feathers, etc. A. Guillory, of the River wagon shop, exhibits a springdelivery wagon of fine finish, manufactured for the French bakery, the lettering and painting done by Morsch & Manning. The total cost of the vehicle M as about 1650. S. C. Foy makes an elegant display of saddles, harness, bridles, robes and other articles in his line. One saddle, which employed a workman about three months in its manufacture and is worth at a low estimate $300, is one of the chief attractions in the Pavil ion. The leather is of the finest black, elegantly stamped and mounted with solid silver. The trimming is of Irish flax, interwoven in a most tasty design in the borders. The saddle will be raffled at Williams' saloon next Saturday evening. Mr. Foy makes a specialty of the manufacture of saddle trees for the trade and those made by him have a reputation extending along the whole Pacific coast. Some fine robes of Alaska and gray squirrel skins and lap-robes, bridles, whips, spurs, fair-leather saddles, a saddle with nickel plate, etc., complete the display. Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Baker, of the Sewing Machine Exchange, have a full representation of machines for which they hold the agency. The number comprises tne Florence, Gro ver & Baker, Howe, Singer, Secor, Wheeler & Wilson, Wilcox & Gibbs and American. They also exhibit dress charts, machine appliances, oils, and general trappings belonging to the line. Tut tie & Lee have on exhibition a good display of photographs and stere oscopic views. Miss Kate Whiting displays three oil paintings which are very creditable to the art. Miss Mary E. Bell has a wreath of hair-flowers made by herself at twelve years of age and bearing in the centre her picture, taken at the time, It is a very neat and elegant piece of hair wofk. Prof. Havell exhibits two grand square pianos, one the manufacture of Hallett, Davis <fc Co. and the other of the New York Piano Co. T. D. Maloney has a fine display of pen-drawing and writing, executed by himself. One specimen—adrawingof an orange limb, with fruit, leaves and flowers—is particularly meritorious. Another, representing "The Bob-o link," is a masterpiece. The whole is far above the average work of the kind presented to the public. Mrs. Schultz has a flue collection of samples of worsted and bead work, in cluding a sofa pillow, curtain drapery and tidies. The work is flnely done. Mrs. Farris, of Florence Station, ex hibits a roll of rag-carpet which does credit to the maker. Mlssßettie Heller has a sample of worsted and bead-work in a large frame representing Washington on the battle-field. The design is good and the execution such that a very good likeness is produced. Mr. Thomas Perkins of Azusa, shows some fine samples of cigars and plug tobacco manufactured from to bacco grown this year on his place. The manufactured tobacco is of a fine quality, and the cigars wantonly age and thorough drying to make them some of the best in market. Mr. Per kins uses no patient process in curing his tobacco, but the old established method adopted in the tobacco grow ing States where he has had large and valuable experience. Mrs. Strelitz displays a table-spread with raised worsted work upon a body ef doeskin. It is the most tasty and elegant work of the kind which we have ever seen. Mrs. Glothlin has some baby's clothes handsomely worked in silk floss, which she places on exhibition and offers for rallle. Miss Clioneta Williams has a sofa pillow upon which is worked a bou quet of flowers in raised worsted. A very beautiful parlor ornament. John T. Gordon of the Azusa has on exhibition some honey which is al most as clear as a crystal and a good representation of the best honey made in the Los Angeles valley.

Linds exhibits and has on sale a case of very ornamental and useful Yankee-notions. He has sweet-water muscle shells, highly polished and mounted to seive as ladies' compan ions, with scissors, thimble, needles, knife and all the little necessities for sewing. The shells are also worked into tatten cases, portimonies, match boxes and various other handy con trivances adjusted to the pocket. These articles are manufactured in San Fran cisco and sold only through Mr.Linds. lie has also sleeve-buttons, and ladies' setts manufactured from native woods and finished in a manner to make them acceptable articles of toilet in the most tasty apparel. These are made by R. VV. Brehm, fancy wood turner, of San Francisco. All of these articles are sold very cheap. Mrs. McNally has on display a piece work counterpainof the log-cabin pat tern which is offered for rattle. Edward Pleasants of Los Nietos, exhibits three pumpkins weighing respectively 108, 109 and 11" pounds. He also has baskets of fine apples and walnuts. Commencing in the centre at the front, O. W. Childs has a complete as sortment of semi-tropical fruits, ar ranged and presided over by Mr. E. Huber. Tho collection consists of walnuts, Italian chestnuts, limes, or anges, lemons, grapes, apples, pears, figs, citrons and several varieties of almonds. Moritz Choynski here brings in his new patent mosquito net apparatus which has been fully described hereto fore and needs no further testimony as to its ingenuity and usefulness. Workman Bros., In a large glass frame have a fine display of saddles, harness, bridles, whips, spurs and the thousand-and-one things pertaining to their line. An elegant saddle, silver mounted and valued at $300, is an ob ject of constant admiration by all ob servers. The silver used was manu factured from Mexican dollars melted and moulded by Sefior Santiago de Santra Cruz. The work is all elegant ly trimmed and no expense has been spared to make it par excel lance. The other articles on display are equally worthy a close inspection. E. C. Glidden, the Los Angeles agent, has a display ot the New Wil son SewingMachiueof different styles and prices, varying from $50 to $125. It is claimed that these machines of equal workmanship and excellence are sold twenty-five per cent, cheaper than those of other manufacturers. They will do all work that any sewing ma chine can do, from finest to coarsest. Bell A- Green have a display of har ness and harness hardware showing fine workmanship and good stock. T. A. Garey has from his nurseries a full variety of young orange and lemon trees and a banana tree planted in boxes or tubs and forming a grove almost of themselves. We noticed the following varieties: Chinese dwarf banana, Shaddock, Oangarine, Sicily and dwarf Chinese Mandarin orange, as well as the Myrtle-leafed, Cono, Se ville Bitter, St. Nicholas, Acapulco, Malta Blood and Citron varieties. Sev eral varieties of lemon were also intro duced in the collection, and one we noticed eight months from the bud, measuring six feet in height. E. H. Harral has thirteen sewing machines on exhibition of the Wheeler & Wilson manufacture and ranging in price from $60 to $250. One of the Secor machines is also shown, which is claimed as one of the latest and best inventions or improvements in the line. Above the display is ranged in line nine diplomas for premiums taken at the several fairs of the State given this year. The agent of these ma chines claims every first premium which has been awarded for sewing machines in the State during the pres ent season. Brunk & Bruk come last but far from least in the interest which they contribute to tho general display. They have in a separate apartment from the main room a collection of fowls which could not be eclipsed at any poultry market in the country. The several varieties are: the Hou dans, speckled white and black, said to be the finest layers in the world; the Leghorn, medium size, white and very valuable, a single rooster and pair of hens being worth $200; Buff Cochin, large, fine Winter layers; dark Bramah, large and good layers; light Braraah, large and also good layers. Some pet rabbits, together with a good supply of each breed of fowl com pletes the display. Two uncommonly smart educated chickens are among the number, and they will readily convince the observer that they know a thing or two. Messrs. Brunk and Bruk make a specialty of raising poultry and are also engaged in the bee-busidess. They are agents for the Poultry World— the standard author ity on matters pertaining to fowls. Two buggy-robes, two pairs of blan kets and a breast-pin were stolen from different parties at the Fair Grounds on Monday afternoon. Officer Harris was advised of the theft and yesterday he succeeded in capturing the pur loiner and recovering all of the goods except one of the robes. The thief s name, as given by him, is Geo. Simp son. Officer Harris was on the look out for the fellow's confederates last night to recover the rest of the stolen property. The ball to be given at Turn-Vereiu Hall by the Fair Association has been postponed until to-morrow evening. This change has been found necessary In consequence of the late rain, the delay in the opening of the pavilion and for the better accommodation of all the participants in the affair gen erally. Every preparation is being made for a grand time —probably th? most brilliant of the kind ever given in Los Angeles. V Attention in directed to the adver tisement of Mr. F. Hays, which ap pears under the head of ''new to-day." Mr. Hays has lately arrived from San Francisco and has started a first-class hair store at No. 43 Main street, under the Lafayette Hotel. He keeps all kinds of human hair goods, such as wigs, switches, braids, curls, etc. La dies can also have their own hair worked up to order on short notice and have satisfaction guaranteed. We yesterday saw a spear of barley which Had grown to the length of four and a half inches, starting from the seed some eight or nine days since with the first rain of the season. Ar guing from this, the crops will have an early start this year. In consequence of the late heavy rains Montgomery Queen's Circus and Menagerie has been detained above San Fernando and will not be here until Friday. The company will fur nish entertainments, afternoou and evening on Friday and Saturday. The Directors of the Chamber of Commerce will hold a special meeting to-nignt at Judge Sepulveda's office to consider some important matters. A full attendance is desired at 7 o'clock sharp. The Justice Courts are distressingly dull. Looking at the change in the preservation of law and order from this standpoint, we can appreciate the good effects of a moral horse-race. Dr. Gelcich brought in from his sul phur spring in the San Fernando oil region yesterday, a quantity of the water which, it is said, possesses val uable mineral qualities. A gentleman has lost a Colts re volver, police pattern, cutoff. Finder will receive a liberal reward by leav ing it at 79A Downey Block.
