CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY, JAN. 22, 1875. The Story Not Half Told. To the Eastern and European ear a flavor of exaggeration attaches to what it is now the fashion to write of California. A very few years ago our Btate watt comparatively isolated and was principally known as the region where adventurous men came to seek sudden fortuues. Very fewCalifor nians themselves know much of the agricultural, pomological and other capabilities of a State which now-a days exports more than hall' the wheat sent from the United States to foreign lands, and In which three-fourths of the wine which to-day is made iv the United States is manufactured. It was in 1857, in fact, that JOHN B. WELLS, from his seat in the United States Senate, said that he would not give "two bits" for all the agricultural lauds in California. He thought he knew the State from Alpha to Omega, and yet how completely he was de ceived the record of the last seven years shows with a luminousness that loaves no possibility of doubt. Since that day the Caifforn/an tried his "prentice hand" at fanning, and his State to-day leads the roll of produc ing sisterhood. It is really a case of " Eclipse first, aad the rest nowhere." Stories of achievements in every range of agriculture go East, and the staid citizen of the older States is in credulous. Mrs. Calhoun, Grace Greenwood aud Nordiioff came here and confirmed the flattering tale, and still our Eastern brethren could not resist the belief that a race of Munchausen's or Prestor Johns was growing up on the Pacific coast,whosc lively Imagination dwarfed the " long bew" of Irvino's Dolph Heyligero. Much such a mistake as Senator Weller made with regard to Califor nia at large has been made by the people of this State, until recently, with reference to Los Angeles county. It was ranked as a "cow" county. Little good could be expected to come out of the beautiful Nazareth which stretched its ample domain, if not "from the centre all round to the sea," at least from tho borders of San Ber nardino county to Point Duma, reach ing lengthwise a distance of several hundred miles. It was looked upon as a great region upon which to herd sheep and homed cattle. Presently admission had to he made in San Francisco of the delicious quality of the Los Angeles table grape, which, en passant, we may as well say, is the finest in the world. Almost simul taneously the Los Angeles orange commended itself to an appreciation that could not be witheld, owing to its unrivalled excellence. Next came the Los Angeles wiire and brandies. Soon it began to be observed that Cal ifornia was producing fully one-half the wool grown in the United States, and that Los Angeles county contrib uted a large proportion of the total yield of California. Next, the ilgs, raisins, walnuts, and last, though not least, and perhaps destined to be the most important, the tobacco of Los Angeles county, fought their way to a tardily accorded, but triumphantly ac complished, recognition? Los Ange les has lately started in to demonstrate the fact that, if San Francisco has a Comstock lode, she has as good a placer in Panamint; and two years will not have passed before the claim will have been conceded. In addition, hor petroleum wells will contest the palm with Venango county, Pennsyl vania. Tho progression we have de scribed does not tell the whole story for Los Angeles county. The tourist J for pleasure and the valetudinary be gan to come our way. They found a rapidly growing city, surrounded by every indication of substantiality and wealth. They discovered for the first time that we have in Los Augeles county a region of indescribable fer tility and beauty, which, in the Spring time of the year, more than realizes the beauties descried by Rykon in the poem, "Know ye the land," etc. They were in the midst of a region where the graceful palm-tree frequently lifts itself from a grove of oranges, and where the bright, garish beauty of the pomegranate is tempered by the deep, cool green of the fig. They found that a land which had bceu described to them as arid and fit only for pastur age, and which was supposed to be subject to continuous and rarely inter mitted drouths, was in fact the most poetical section of the United States full of accomplished bemity and wealth and unlimited in Its possibilities. It is of those last that we design to speak, and we intend incidentally to discourse of the " almighty dollar." Al no time in the history of the place has Los Angeles been free from croak ers. And yet it is singular that these people have been unable to perceive that their city is to-day the richest place of its size on the American Con' tinent. And it is not wealth that has been centuries accumulating, as iv the coso of many Eastern cities. The whole thing has been accomplished iv the last ten years. It is not commer cial wealth, but the profit arising from downright agricultural ami horticul tural productions. Of course wo arc to-day benefited by a large immigra tion, drawn here by the beauty of Los Angeles and by the certain and bril liant future that awaits tho place. Many of the four hundred buildings which have been erected within the city limits during the past six months have been built by persons of means, who have sensibly concluded that of all localities, this is the place for ele gant and beautiful home.' ; a place where they can enjoy a climate which shames that of Nice and Mintonc; where the heliotrope grows to such size that it can be trained over the second story of a house, blooming in mid-winter, and where California ca naries and mocking birds sit on the boughs of the orange and lemon tro< s nnd pour out their delicious songs in February. Hut the five thousand per sons who are coming into Los Angeles county annually are coming hen; to make money, nnd we propose lo take a glance at their chances. These last are numerous. In (lie first place, and we would proclaim it in Gath and an nounce it boldly in Askalon, Los An geles county is capable of containing one million prosperous people; and, some day or other, she will hold that number. Hie areaof productive funn ing land In this county is simply prodigious. Hitherto the ridiculous idea has been held that only such lands are available as can be irrigated. That is the idea held by strangers. It is as aerial and unfounded as the base less fabric of a vision. To siiow how entirely absurd it is, it is only neces sary to instant* the fact fhat, in the worst years of drouth, 1803 and 1864, over four hundred thousand dollars worth of produce was shipped from tin's county. There are extensive tracts of land in Lns Angeles county which are as completely independent of irrigation as tbe bottom lands of the Mississippi or the farms of Ches ter county, Pennsylvania. In the see oud place, until twenty years ago, no one overheard of drouth in this coun ty, and we are likely to have a succes sion of a dozen years characterized by the copious rains of the present sea son. Old Californians, who have lived in this county for nearly three quarters of a century, affirm that within their recollections there have been but five seasons of drouth within the last half century. It was at tirst thought that no lands in California admitted of cultivation, and yet this erroneous Idea did not prevent a young farmer, who began in 1860, from real izing $120,000 from the cultivation in wheat ofl'of 600 acres of land in Santa Cruz county, a thing which could not bo done with 6,000 acres in the East. Another farmer who purchased in the beginning of last year, 160 acres of : land lying near the Centinela liancho, for which he paid 925 per acre, sowed the whole to barley, and the crop netted him 537 50 per acre. In con sidering the rainfall in Los Angeles county it should not be forgotten that the rain-gauge for several years past has shown a less rainfall than comes throughout more than half of the Btate of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. Besides here we have no grasshoppers to make us afraid, and no potato bug to recall to our memory Phako and the lean kine. Not only can great portions of Los Angeles county be farmed without irrigation, but if it were established that irrigation be needed, artesian water can be obtained at slight deptlis over a large portion of this county, aud inexhaustible surface wells everywhere. This, of eourse,in volves some slight outlay, but the re sults are immense. We are prepared to demonstrate that an industrious man can make more money oft" of ten acres in Los Angeles county than off of fifty acres in Ohio or Pennsyl vania. It is a well known fact thai, in these States, the average yield of wheat to the acre has fallen to eight or nine bushels. This would give a gross yield to the acre of from $10 to $11, or a net yield of less than IS per acre. Compare this with the results in the case of the two farmers i astancod above. Take ten acres of grapes in Los Angeles county, raised for tho purpose of being converted Into wine. The yield from General Stonkman's one hundred acre vineyard for the year 1874 WM 80,060 gallons of wine and 7,000 gallons of brandy. These are staple articles all the world over, and need never fear a glutted market. The taste for the pure wine of California is constantly on the increase in the East. General Stonkman sold his wine in the vats for fifty cents per gallon, making for the whole crop of wii.e and brandy some $17,000. The total outlay was $1,640, leaving a net profit per acre of $154. The General only ir rigates his grapes once a year, anil he says they will grow to perfection without irrigation anywhere in Los AngeU s county. As they hare pro llficalsyrn their third year tho vine yardest is well rewarded for his wait ing. The enormous profits of orange, lemon and lime culture are well un derstood. As the orange tree docs not yield a paying crop until it has attained the age of nine or ten years, persons of small means are restricted to growing them merely in their gar dens. But it is a rare delight to an Eastern person to be able to surround himself with oranges, lemons, figs, walnuts and almonds, all of which will, in a few years, be a source of profit, and in every stage of growth are a source of delight. Tobacco will yield five crops in the year, and will pay a profit of from $500 to $800 per acre. At the recent sales in Louis ville, Kentucky, California tobacco sold at from 80 to 100 per cent, above all other brands. Willi millions of acres of the finest land under the sun, with pure, sweet water accessible everywhere with very Blight expendi ture of money and time, with the finest climate in the world, and with landscape beauties which charm the cultured traveler, we feel assured that the half has not been told as to the ca pabilities and possibilities of Los An geles oounty. The enormous wealth which is already gathered here is but a circumstance to that which the as sessor will ascertain ten years from to-day. Our county will be dotted with a hundred prosperous villages, the centers of surrounding prosperous agricultural districts. This city will contain within six years twenty-five thousand inhabitants. Every fertile rancho under an intelligent system of colonization will contain many hun dreds of prosperous and contented peo ple. The twelve inches of rain that have fallen in the last six days augurs the beneficence of the weather clerk, but more money can be made in Los Angeles county by digging for water and using it, than can be realized from the same number of acres in the East, even where the flood-gates of heaven are always open. There the existence of the farmer is at best a mere slaviug for six months in Iho year to produce enough feed for his cattle for the remaining six. In the face of such facts what wonder thai we anticipate n brilliant future for the at present prosperous and lovely Los Angeles city and valley? DRINKING PLACES. What Ihe City Father* ttM «» Nay A hunt siilooiin. The City Fathers had an animated discussion yesterday concerning sa loons. The bond of saloon-keepers was raised from $500 to $2,000. Mr. Huber was tho originator of the amended ordinance. He maintained thai every orderly saloon - keeper would lie willing to give the addi tional bond ; only the evil-dispos >d ones would howl. The "dead-falls." " foul pits" nnd "low groceries" me the curse to tho community. There the desperadoes, cut-throats and sneak thieves are ■tieneMft We must shut these places up. Councilman Huber said that he had seen women go Hito low dens on l.os Angeles street, with merely n "chemise" on, and some had less than that on. Mr. Mascarel pronounced this a stab at poor, but resectable, saloon men. You might as well ask them for a bond of $50,000 as for a bond of $2,000. It was merely an effort to drown out poor men. If you want to raise the rich saloon mail's bond, dp it; but let the saloon-keeper alone. Mr. Leahy' wanted the " low dens " closed, as in that case no( half the present police force would be required. Mr. Workman objected to oppress ing the poor man. Just as much dis order occurs, just as much crime is concocted in "guilded palaces" as in the poor man's saloon. Mr. Huber insisted on the $2,000 clause. He wanted men to bo able to be out at night without having a big navy strapped to his rear. Owing to the bad characters sheltered nt these low groggeries, a man is frightened at night by the mere shadow of a tree. Mr. Lichtenberger said he did not desire to close up saloons —he occa sionally "took a nip" himself—but, he wanted all low dens closed. At these little saloons, he had noticed that on Saturday nights hard working me chanics were enticed within and robbed of their week's wages before they hud a chance to go to their homes. The bond of saloon-men was fixed at 5?2,OO0 by the following vote: Ayes: Leahy, ldchtenberger, Hu ber, Teed, Muilaly, Woli'skill, Robin son—7. Noes: Workman, Campbell, Car moua, Masearel, Sotello—s. Don Masearel reminded the Council that the Mayor might veto the ordi nance, and then it would require a two-thirds vote to make it a law. The new ordinance, besides retim ing a bond ot $2,000, with two or more good securities, to keep a bar, saloon or dance-house, conditioned that the proprietor will pay all dues and li censes; keep a quiet and orderly house aud promptly suppress any disorder iv his establishment, handing the disturbers of the peace over to the officers of the law. A Singular Duel in San Francisco. San Fhancisco, January 20th.— Yesterday morning, shortly aftej day light, a duel was fought near lilat*k Point, in wliicli a physician, resident of tin's city, and a former office-holder under tiie Federal Qovemment in Louisiana, who is here on a visit, were tiie principals. The physician was accompanied by a friend named Breck inridge and a Mr. Williams, of Oak land, acted as friend for the ex-oflice liolder. There was also a surgeon on the ground, but we were unable to learn his name. The arms used wore navy revolvers. The terms were that each party should lire until one or the other fell. At the first lire the physi cian was wounded in the left shoulder, and that ended the duel. The parties separated and the wounded man was taken to the oflice of a surgical friend on Sixth street, where the bullet was extracted. The physician, who was an olliccr iv the Southern army under Gen. Bragg, was Instrumental In hav ing the brother of the ex-office-holder shot as a spy. The ex-office-holder voweii he would be revenged on the man who had caused his brother's death. Soon after the war they met in one of the Southern States, but no serious results followed. A few days ago the ex-office-holder arrived in this city ou a visit. He heard thut the physician resided here, and sent him a challenge, which was accepted. Friends endeavored to prevent the meeting, but their eilbrts were futile. The preliminary arrangements were made, and the duel took place as al ready stated. When tho first word was given, they took aim at each other, but at the word "lire," the phy sician shot iv the air, while the other fired directly at him. The physician insisted ou another shot, but his an tagonist refused to fight with a man who shot in the air. When the phy sician found there was not to be an other trial, lie made a desperate effort to kill himself. He put a pistol to his head, but the cap snapped. It is be lieved that the physician wants to die, as he has been very despondent of late, and has talked freely about suicide to his ftiends. Destructive Avalanches In Nevada. Viroinia City, January 18th.— About 2 o'clock this morning a heavy avalanche took place from the side of Mount Davidson, which crushed in the rear portion of a house on Howard street, opposite tho old Hale & Nor cross hoisting works. Three miners- Isaac Jewell, Moses Willey and Thos. Champion—were sleeping in one of the rear rooms,all of whom were buried by snow and debris. The neighbors aroused and began the work of exca vating them. Campion was taken out unhurt, save from e.xposure; Jewell was dead when found; Willey was alive when taken out, but died 8. moment afterwards. Jewell wns unmarried, but Willey leaves a wife and six chil dren, in Cornwall, England. The en tire house was lifted from its founda tion and partially overturned. At 10:20 another terrible a valance swept down the side of Mount David son, carrying away two houses ou the upper side of Howard street. One of them was tho residence of William Dieble. It was swept from its founda tion, and the fragments were swept down the hill two hundred yards. Mrs. Dieble, hearing the roar, escaped from the falling timbers, but was buried in the snow, yet escaping un hurt. Dieble was rescued badly bruised, but will recover. The adjoin ing house was occupied by Fred Ben sou, the janitor of tho Legislature. His wife and two ohildren, one an infant throe months old, were in the back part of the house. The snow struck it, which was crushed In, the inmate! being buried in tho snow. When entrance was effected the infant whs found sitting in a ohalr unhurt. The mother aud Mttlegirl were rescued Buhaeiiuently almost uninjured. RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT. H.VI.t. Or Lkxiihiton Loimje, 1 No. 104, K. <* A. M..
