There will be a race at Agricultural Park to-day. Tbe vexed question of the grade of Olive street has at last been settled satisfactorily to all parties concerned. The new Babcock truck and extin guishers, purchased by the city, will be shipped from San Francisco to-day. Purchasers of Artesia property can make their first payments to-day at the offlce of the company, No. 1J Spring street. A company of young people had a picnic iv the Arroyo Seco yesterday. Rather early in the season to begin Maying. Still they go. We mean the chances for the thousand dollar solitaire dia mond ring at the Fashion Saloon. Somebody is hound to wear that ring in a short time. On account of the unavoidable omission of the trip of the Orizaba,ad vertiscd for Monday, the Mohongo will leave for San Francisco to-mor row instead of to-day according to schedule. The Santa Barbara Press cites, as a picture of happiness, the small boy that rides upon his redwood dog-cart, behind the mouse colored mule, har nessed with bail cord and strips of leather cut from antiquated boot-tops. The man who used to mix drinks and cut glass and howl on our streets, is named Professor Keith. The Pro fessor has gone to Santa Barbara and is now mixing, cutting and howling for the people up there. The Cottage Photograph Gallery of Williams & Smith is doing a rushing business. Yesterday forty-seven dif ferent pictures were taken at this gallery. Reason—low prices and su perior work. The gallery is on First near Spring street. The Gwodali, Nelson & Perkins Steamship Company have voluntarily reduced tlie rate of freight on wine and brandy from Los Angeles county ports to San Francisco one half cent per gal lon. The rate established by the P. M. S. S. Co. was 2J cents. The G. N. & P. S. 8. Co. have placed it at 1J cts. per gallon. They have also reduced the rate on empty pipes and puncheons from $1 50 per pipe and $2 per punch eon, to $1 25 and $1 75, respectively. This evidence of liberality and regard for the interests of our county should be duly appreciated by the commu nity. The company is entitled to much credit. Our friend Jeff White has quite a curiosity at his place which he cap tured the other day. Upon going into his orchard early one morning he dis covered tt large white owl perched in the top ot a walnut tree. By a little in genious manoeuvreiug.some climbing and a few scratches he secured the bird and bore it in triumph to the house. It proves, upon examination, to be of a species known as the snowy owl (apis pot His) and is very rare for this latitude. Jelf has the bird securely boxed and tethered, and proposes to have it killed, stuffed and mounted as soon us ho can find a taxidermist to do the work. The announcement of the lecture ou "Marriage or Free Love" to be deliv ered next Sunday evening at the Catholic Church by Rev. Father Kais ser, hits awakened considerable inter est among our citizens. The subject will be handled by one who is master of any ground which he assumes in a discussion. Our German fellow-citizens will experience a grat ification in hearing one of their coun trymen discourse on a topic so difficult aud delicate in the language of their adopted country. The lecture will commence at 7:30 p. m. Admission free and the pews open to all. At the close of the discourse, a collection will be taken for the benefit of the Catholic Church fund. Common Council Proceedings—Extra Session. The Council met at 7:30 last evening in extra session with Mayor Beaudry in the chair, and present, Councilmen Workman, Leahy, Huber, Lichten berger, Teed, Mullally and Robinson. The City Surveyor was instructed to establish the grade on Olive street be tween Second aud Third, according to an agreement made between the property-owners on the street and the special committee of the Council. On motion of Mr. Huber the resolu tion establishing the grade of upper Main street, passed at the last meet ing, was reconsidered. The resolution was then referred back to the City Surveyor and City Attorney. A communication from B. Cohen was received notifying the Council that the grading of Commercial street would injure his property and that he would resist the payment of auy tax therefor. By request, Captain Bor rowe, the contractor, made a state ment relative to the improvement of Commercial street, and the covering of the zanja running acrsss the street. He expressed an opinion that the work of covering the zanja could be successfully accomplished in accord ance with the provisions of ordinance. The usual bills were brought up and referred to the Finance Committee. A bill of Capt. Borrowe for $17 50 and two bills held over from last month for drivers of city carts were ordered to be paid under suspension of rules. The sidewalk in front of Araestoy's building on Alameda street, was or dered to be reduced to a width of ten feet at the expense of tbe city. Tbe Board of Public Works was author ized to have the change made. On motion of Mr.Leahy, permission was granted Capt. Borrowe to close Commercial street from Wilmington to Main, ono block at a time, while improving that street. On motion of Mr. Huber street con tractors were notified to keep lighted lamps at all breaks in streets during the night-time. The Council then adjourned. THE MAYOR'S VETO. MeMSHgrc Transmitted to the Council by His Honor tbe Mayor with the Ordi nance Reducing- Ilouds or tialoon- Keepers to 8500-A Straightfor ward. Sensible Document. To the Honorable Members ofthe Com mon Council of the City of Lou Angels, Cal. : Gentlemen: An ordinance passed by your Honorable Council on the eighteenth day of February instant, fixing the bonds to be given by saloon keepers and others at five hundred dollas, and virtually setting aside an other ordinance pasted by your said Council und regularly approved by me as Mayor on the twenty-second day of January last, by which the said bonds were fixed at two thousand dollars, was presented to me for approval by the City Clerk on the twentieth day of February instant, and I hereby return the same to him, according to law, without my approval, my objections to said ordinance being the following: In my opinion, the ordinance fixing the said bonds at two thousand dollars was a v, ise one and should be contin ued in force. If so, it will have the effect to elevate the tone of all the saloons and places of public enter tainment, And probably to close up the lowest class taverns aud groggeries which are so great an evil in every community. % It was said that this high figure of a bond was injurious to poor old men who could not work and had recourse to tavern-keeping for a living. I doubt whether this be correct, as I am in formed that most, if uot all, the keep ers of those low groggeries are able bodied men who could easily toil for their daily bread, as well as those who waste their earnings to support them. But, were this assertion true, for the sake ol* a few persons are you prepared to allow this standing, enticing occa sion to hundreds of working men to uselessly and lavishly spend their money? The man coming home with his week's hard-earned salary is often enticed into those low groggeries and does not get out of them until his last cent has gone into the pocket of the tavern-keeper. He then goes home penniless, in a disgusting state, to his wife who has long been waiting for the coin to buy food and garments for the little ones, but nothing is left for that object. Had humor, quarrels and des pair are substituted for the long-ex pected. comfort. Oftentimes the dis couraged mother will prostitute her own daughter and advise her son to rob, in order to procure the necessaries of life, the price of which has been wasted in the grog-shop. The majority of those low taverns are nests of crime and infamy. It is in their dark corridors,with the help of poisoned liquors, that thefts and house breaking are concocted. The men who keep them do not labor for their daily bread, but lead a useless, lazy life, re lying only on the bad passions of the people for their support. They do uot produce anything for the community, unless it be scandal, desolation and dishonor. It was said that the enforcing of the $2,000 bonds, would occasion a loss of five hundred dollars a month in the revenues of the city. This assertion lacks proof, so far, and before repeal ing that ordinance a sufficient time ought to be allowed to test its effect In that, as well as in every other re gard.. The object of said ordinance wus to uphold good morals in this city,by closing up the dens of Infamy, the schools of immorality. Would our city, with a population of thirteen thousand inhabitants, consent to keep up those generator! of crime and felony, for the consideration of five hundred dollars per month? But this is a mistake. The closing up of the low grog shops 1 refer to,will cause no loss to the city; the mints* ous police force which we have now to pay, is kept busy, for the most part, looking after them and their custom ers. Close them up and in a short time you will find that one-half of the actual number of policemen will be sufficient, and you will save tlie five hundred dollars, only on the salary of policemen. But the closing up - of said grog shops will do better than that. A consequence will-be that the working man after his day's or week's labor will go straight home with his earn ings, and carry with him good exam ple, good humor, happiness and com fort. ft has also been stated that the said bond was arbitrary and that no one ever saw such restrictions. This is a mistake, in most of the Eastern cities they have much more stringent regu lations than ours concerning taverns, which are closed at 12, and even at 11 o'clock at night, and are not allowed to open on Sundays. I am Informed that in our own State, in the city of Sacramento, not many years ago, the tax paid by saloons was five hundred dollars a year, and the bonds required from them five thousand dollars. Some people believe that our commu nity could not subsist without the poor man's taverns. lam of a quite different opinion, aud I believe that the less we have of them the better. A tavern-keeper, with a family, must make an expense of at least five or six dollars per day for rent, license, house expenses, etc.; let us call it five dollars per day; if he sells drinks at five cents a glass, we shall suppose he takes a benefit of two cents upon the sale of each glass; he must then sell two hundred and fifty glasses per day to meet his expenses. This number of glasses will intoxicate at least twenty-five of the most robust drink ers, and will carry hatred, quarrel and desolation in as many families. So, in order to support that man, you allow twenty-five families to sufFer. Suppose each of these families to contain four persons, they aggregate one hundred persons. Who will you choose to protect, four persons or one hundred. Will not more good derive from protecting the larger than the smaller number? Let those tavern keepers work at some other trade or occupation for their living, as well as those they now intoxicate, and the community will derive great benefit from it. When the $2,000 bond ordinance was passed, on the 21st of Jauuary last, by a vote of nine against three, I heartily joined with you and approved it on the following day, believing that you had voted after due consideration and relying upon your consistency of ac tion. I subscribed to and approved the said ordinance because I thought it was destined to do this community an incalculable amount of good. My sincere desire is to join you in your action, when approved by the major ity of your body, providing that your action shall be consistent, and shall tend more and more towards tbe achievement of public good. But if, after having done the good thing, you think fit to retrograde, it becomes my duty to dltfer with you and oppose your action to the extent that tbe law empowers me. If this Council retreats in presence of the mere opposition offered to the Marshal by tavern-keepers, it is want ing in dignity and will not hereafter have Us enactments obeyed. A seri ous effort must be made to take a dig nified stand and keep it. I conclude by declaring that I es teem it my solemn duty to return said ordinance, passed by this Council on the 18th day of February instant, fix ing the bonds of saloon keepers at five hundred dollars, without my ap proval. But I would suggest that the said $2,000 bond ordinance be amended by striking out the word "grocery," as I believe that that word was inadver tently inserted in said ordinance. P. Beaudry, Mayor. A GRAPE BRANDY BONANZA. An Underground Reservoir of Brandy Discovered. Hay Crowing Over Pipes of Spirits. THE LOS ANGELES DISTILLERY IN A TIGHT PLACE. We have all read of rivers flowing with milk and honey, and we have heard of oceans of whisky in Ireland and elsewhere, but it has been left to Los Angeles, prolific Los Angeles, to produce underground lakes of brandy. The Los Angeles distillery has for some time been in the hands of the Revenue ofiicers, ou suspicion that it had man ufactured more grape brandy than it paid revenue for. Lately it was per mitted to resume operations for the purpose of working up the stock, but at no time was it entirely free from the talons of the American eagle. A couple of days ago we noticed our old friend L. M. Foulke, Federal Super visor, on the street, and to our inquiry of what he was doing down here he said, NOTHING. Now we happen to know Foulke does not travel around on that sort of business, so we said nothing, but kept our eyes open. A little later we no ticed Deputy Internal Revenue Col lector Mayhew, from the San Fran cisco office, leisurely reading the signs about town. We happened to know that May hew is as sharp as lightning and generally detailed to look after distillery business, so we fell into a train of thinking but said NOTHING, Kinder slow like to ourselves, and opening our ears took a stroll around where Federal officers most do cougre gate. First we met Deputy Gauger J. R. Brierly, who looked as demure and innocent us though he never smelled a gallon of illicit brandy in his life. Next we encountered Deputy Collect ors Hall and Wheeler trying to make out why the big wheels of a wagon did not overtake and run over the little ones. Clearly these gentlemen were ready to say NOTHING To any and all question* we might ask, ho we didn't ask auy. But we kept a thinking and a wondering, and finally iv a lit of abstractedness we walked over the bridge to the Los Au geles Distillery. Here our attention was attracted to a number of viueyard ists who had sold their grapes to Mr. Tarbox, manager of the distillery, and had not yet received their pay there for. Mingling with these gentlemen we soon discovered that there was something wrong with the distillery; that Foulke, Wheeler, Mayhew, Hall and Brierly were nosing around there aud acting for all the world as though they smelled a large sized violation of the Revenue Law. Our perception! began to brighten over the prospect for a real, live, interesting item. From that moment until last night we worked as an independent government detective all on our own hook, and this is what we found out: UND FRO ROUND VATS. In a hidden away corner of the dis tillery the officers dug a small shaft, Itnd at the depth of a foot or so they struck a perpendicular iron pipe with a plug in the end. This plug they drew out, and one of the keeuest scent ed of tho party—we suspect it was Hall or Brierly—applied his nose to the opening and sniffed. He sniffed again and then swore he smelled grape brandy. The pipe was sounded and proved to be six feet deep, with the lower three feet filled with spirits. This was a phenomenon with which few except certain distillers and reve nue officers have had experience, and the officers decided to follow up the cropping iv the hope that it would lead to a great bonanza. The sequel will show that they were not disappointed. They set a party of miners and sappers at work, who followed down the pipe to where it ran off in a horizontal di rection. They then followed it about one hundred feet, and just where it ran under a shed used as a deposit for grape boxes, they came upon a prize in the shape of a wooden tank about teu feet deep and perhaps sixteen feet in diameter, level full of fine grape brandy. ANOTHER TANK, Similar in size and also full of brandy, was found a little beyond the first and partly under a wagon shed. The tops of these tanks were about eighteen inches under ground, aud the surface of the ground was carefully planked over. In the wagon shed it was easy to raise the contents with a pump. The two tanks contain about 80,000 gallons of brandy. Thero 1b room around there for half a dozen or more of these tanks, and though we have discontinued our investigations the party of miners aud sappers still prose cute the search. UNDER THE HAY ii) the barn we found thirteen pipes of brandy carefully stowed away, which we generously turned over to the offi cers. It's a wonderful place for grape brandy, and if a few hundred pipes are found in the cook-stove and a like number in the distiller's hat, we shall not be surprised. Counting our hay-mow discovery and that promis cuously scattered around and dug Op out of the ground, there have been about 60,000 gallons already brought to light. The distillery accounts for 25,000 gallons manufactured during the season, and 15,000 gallons of that was sold and removed. On what is already in the hands of the officers, the Government revenue amounts to OVER FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, None of which has been paid. The great problem Is, how and when was the brandy buried? A notion pre vailed a few thousand years ago that to bury brandy greatly Improved its flavor, and some people have started the theory that what was found by the officers yesterday was buried by C. Columbus, while on a spree. Others, again, believe that Los Angeles is as full of brandy deposits as the San Fer nando mountains are of petroleum. There is no telling what the sappers and miners will unearth to-day. We live in an age of wonders. Only think, Los Angeles valley one great grape brandy bonanza! NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. SALE.
