That Mare's Nest.
That wonderful pass which the en
gineers of the Southern Pacific Rail
road Company discovered intheCajon
mountains has passed in its cheeks
and passed out of sight. It proved to
be a sort of Jack o' lantern —a mirage
—that existed "in ray mind's eye,
Horatio." The latest information
from the front is to the effect
that the Southern Pacific people have
abandoned their pass and vacated the
premises and that Mr. Crawford,
Chief Engineer of the Los Angeles
and Independence Railroad, has lo
cated his lines through the pass proper
and has a large force of graders man
ufacturing road bed as fast as muscle,
shovels, picks and powder will do the
Water Power.
It is a subject for wonder that Ihe
great water power facilities of Los
Angeles and vicinity have not attract
ed more general attention from the
many manufacturers and machinists
who have from time to time visited
our city. Around the foot of tlie
chain of hills which gird our city on
the West and Southwest are the natu
ral sites for a dozen manufacturing es
tablishments, each of which could ob
tain an abundant water power at mere
nominal cost. The city owns the
water of the Los Angeles river and
will always make the most liberal ar
rangements with those who desire
water power for manufacturing pur
poses. The water is used for irrigat
ing purposes on the level valley and
that portion of it which is brought
over the hills from the river may do
the work of a thousand horse power
engine before it reaches the field of
operation as an irrigator. Los Angeles
valley needs now a beet sugar factory,
a paper mill and half a dozen other
manufacturing establishments,among
them an agricultural implement man
ufactory. These are industries that
must come and the men of business
and capital who come first will secure
the best localities on the most liberal
terms-and build up a large trade with
out contending with opposition.
Cultivation of Small Fruit.
The Herald is in daily receipt of
letters from people in the East, en
quiring what a person or family with
a small capital can do in Los Angeles
valley in the way of fruit raising. It
depends a good deal on what is con
sidered a small capital, ana on tlie
kind of fruit one proposes to grow.
To do anything the capital should be
sufficiently large to secure a few acres
of land on which to make the home.
This may be done with a sum ranging
from $1,500 to $5,#00. Now, if it is
proposed to grow oranges, lemons aud
limes, some provision must be made
for living from the time the trees are
set out until they begin to bear —a
period of not less than live years.
Suppose the trees are five years old
when set out, they will yield no re
turn until they are ten or eleven years
old. This is not an encouraging pros
pect for a family that has expended
its small capital in land and trees. A
return is received from peach, apple,
and pear trees something sooner than
in the middle or Eastern States. But
a profit may be realized from land
planted in semi-tropical fruit trees,
long before the trees themselves bear
fruit. It is all the better for the trees
if the land is cultivated, and if the
space is occupied with vines and small
fruit shrubbery, a handsome profit is
the result. The blackberry, currant,
raspberry aud strawberry may all be
growu on land planted with semi
tropical fruit trees. Except the straw
berry, but little attention has been
paid to the cultivation of small fruit
in this valley. These products are re
ceiving more care now than formerly,
and we have no doubt they will come
to be the means of support for families
with small capital during the inter
mission between the planting and tlie
yielding of their orange groves.
Will None of It.
The persistent efforts of politicians
to draw the Grange into politics and
thus convert the organization into an
engine for hoisting themselves into
office have, we are happy to say, thus
far signally failed. And so long as
the Grange is true to its principles,—
so long as it is controlled by farmers
it will not sink into the filthy pool of
politics and become the tool of schem
ing and dishonest politicians. Almost
every subordinate Grange, especially
those in the vicinity of large towns
and cities are beßet with men who are
not farmers in the true sense of the
term, and who have no sympathy
with the fajmers' interest or regard
for the farmers' welfare. They want
to become grangers not because they
desire to aid in the development
and advancement of our agricul
tural resources, but in the
hope that they may wield the
Grange power for their individual
interests—that they may call them
selves the "Grange candidate" for the
office they have in view. We doubt if
many of these curb-stone farmers will
succeed in worming themselves into
the Grauge, and we have too much
faith in the good sense of the farmers
to believe that these new converts to
the profession of Cincinnatus will
ever reach the goal of their ambition
by the vote of the Grange. The last
announcement that the Grange will
not go info politics comes from the
Granger's Convention held in San
Francisco recently, and reads as fol
/iV.io/re,/, That the Pah-ons of Husbandry ol
California, while they deeply sympathize with
their brethren of other Industrial pursuits in
their efforts to liberate themselves from the
thraldom in which they are held by monopo
lies, disavow any Intention of forming politi
cal alliances, and, In accordance with the
avowed principles of the < irder, they reaffirm
their unqallfled opposition tojoining with any
political organization as a body, each patriot
being entirely free to. exercisie the elective
franchise according to the dictate* of bis own

[S. F. Cail, February 281 h.l
A short time since a young colored
woman known us Lizzie Peck w :ts
arrested on a charge of forgery, the
alleged offence consisting in procuring
goods upon orders falsely signed with
the name of Mary Pleasant, whom tho
accused claims as her mother. Lizzie
now tells
.She alleges that she was attending a
lirst-class private school in Boston,
where she and her sister were left by
their parents on their departure for
California. About a year afterward
her mother wrote her, Informing bet
that a wealthy colored man In San
Francisco had become enamored of her
from seeing her picture, and that the
mother had promised him the hand of
the girl. With this came a letter from
the lover himseif, making an otter of
marriage. Another letter shortly
came to hand, enclosing his picture,
aud showing him to be a man advanced
in years. At the same time site re
ceived from her mother a sum of
money sufficient for her passage, with
order to repair to San Francisco and
be married.
Having conceived an affection for a
young man about her own age, the
girl conceived the idea of sending her
sister, who somewhat resembled her,
to fulfil the matrimonial contract, and
accordingly a ticket was purchased
and the sister departed. The next
news site received was an epistle from
the mother, flaming with wrath, or
dering her to depart instanter for San
Francisco, or be prepared to support
herself In futuro, as not another dollar
should she receive from home.
She came to this city, and against
her will was married to her adorer.
In a few months they separated, and
tlie wife began an action for divorce,
asking for a share of the property.
About this time the sister died, and
the heroine of the story was herself
dangerously ill for a long time v On
recovery she bethought herself of her
divorce business, and waited on her
lawyer to learn the result. To her as
tonishment she found that the moth
er bad represented to the attorney
that she was the one who had died,
and that the case had been stricken
from the docket. She and bar hus
band were on friendly terms, though
she refused to live with him, and lie
often supplied her with money.
Finally be died, assuring his wife that
she should be provided for.
She alleges that during his last ill
ness her mother prevented her having
access to him, and persuaded him that
as the daughter was incapable of
transacting business judiciously, the
best way to insure her a competence
would be to leave the property to her
(the mother) to be used for the daugh
ter's benefit. Accordingly, by deed of
gift, the dying man conveyed to Mrs.
Pleasants property worth overslo,ooo.
The girl alleges that she never receiv
es any benefits from the $120 per
month of rents collected from this
property, and that the present prose
cution is apian to get rid of her im
portunities. She alleges that tlie dif
ference between her mother and her
self arose from causes which will be
explained on the trial in a way to
create a sensation "iv certain quar

The Crawfordsville, Indiana, Star,
of January 26th, speaks as follows of
California and of a Calilornian who
was passing through that town on the
cars to his home in Indiana: ,
One of the curiosities at the Railroad
Junction the other day was a man di
rect from San Diego, California. It
was one of our coldest mornings, and
as the shivering traveler told the pip
ing crowd how he had left the land of
gold, but a week since, with the flow
ers all in bloom, the green grass
spread out beneath his feet, the earth
and air teeming with animal and veg
etable life, the streets full of gaily
dressed people in their Summer attire,
and the whole beneath a Summer sky
and a Summer sun—the motley crowd
of interested hearers presented a
strange appearance of mingled aweand
wonder. Loafers who never had
any higherambition than to sit on the
warm side of a sunny building and
whittle on a store box, were all atten
tien, and wished they were in that
blissful clime never disturbed by Win
ter's chilling blasts, and where drunks
can repose under a harvest moon at
any time or season of the year and
never freeze. And as that poor shiv
ering stranger, in obedience to the
order 'all aboard,' sprang upon the
moving train, to those listeners he
seemed an angel sent from some far
away paradise; and the name of the
' golden-gated city of 'Frisco' fell on
their willing ears as the sound of rip
pling waters to the desert-worn pil
grim. It is doubtful if it is possible
today toconviace one of those loafers
that the Golden State is other than the
abode of angels, or that the half-frozen
traveler was not a-messenger sent
direct from those far-off land of Peri,
bidding the.m to come."
Bishop Ames tells a story of a slave
master in Missouri, in the olden times
of negro vassalage, who said to his
chattel : "Pompey, I hear you are a
great preacher." "Yes, massa, de
Lord do help me powerful sometimes."
■"Well, Pompey, don't you think the
negroes steal little things on the plan
tation?" "I'se mighty 'fraid they
does, massa." "Then, Pompey, I
want you to preach a' sermon to the
negroes against stealiug." After a
brief reflection Pompey replied: "You
see, massa, dat would never do, 'cause
'twould trow such a col'ness over de

A Tannery Burned.
Stockton, March Ist. —A disastrous
conflagration occurred here last night.
The Pacific tannery, owned by Kull
mau, Wagner & Co., was burned.
When first discovered, tlie flames were
bursting through the roof. The build
ing and all its contents, except the
books, papers and money in the office
were destroyed. The proprietors esti
mate their loss.includingthe building,
stock and machinery, at from $75,000
of $100,000. The insurance is small.
This is the third time this property has
been destroyed withiu a few years.
Thirty-five or forty persons were
thrown out of employment. The ori
gin of the fire is not known, but many
suppose it to be the work of an incen
diary. Tlie tannery was the largest
manufacturing establishment in this

From San Francisco.
San Francisco, March 2nd,—The
inquiry into the loss of the steamer
Japan has elicited a much greater
amount of evidence than that adduced
at Hong Kong. Captain Waterman,
Inspector of Hulls, conducted the in
vestigation on behalf of the Govern
ment, assisted by Mr. Hawkhurt, En
gineer-Superintendent of the company.
It is impossible to say exactly what
the report will be, as the examination
has been conducted privately, but it is
probable that different conclusions
will be reached as to the cause of the
disaster; that the fire did not origin
ate in the coal-bunker, but in the
hold, and had gained great headway
when discovered.
Iv the Board of Supervisors last
night, resolutions were adopted to re
investigate the account of E. P. Buck
ley, ex-License Collector, the sessions
to be public, the same being necessary
in the judgement of the Board am as to
show the conduct pursued and the
amount of defalcations in the man
agement of the department, and so
that the the ends of justice may be
subserved and the amount out of
which the city has been defrauded as
certained, and that the same may be
recovered by due process of law.
