Our Fruits—Can we Afford to Eat Them ?
Complaints aro frequently made by
visitors to Los Angeles that they are
required to pay exorbitant prices for
fruits and other productions of our
section, when purchasing them in
small quantities on the street. There
is much justice in the protests thus
entered. If one wishes a half-dozen
oranges, he must pay as much for
them to the keeper of a fruit stand
here, as he could buy them for in San
Francisco or New York. And yet or
anges are raised here and shipped by
the hundreds of thousands. The
vendor buys them at 25 cents per
dozen and sells them at 75 cents,- or
he pays 15 cents for a poorer quality
and sells at 50 cents. Thus he makes
some two or three hundred per cent,
profit — a very fair margin on
a class of fruits which can
not be considered perishable.
The same exhorbitant prices cover
all our semi-tropical fruits and nuts.
Why does this state of affairs exist?
Is it because a number of grasping
vendors have a corner on the market
and skilfully maintain it? Such must
be the case. Our groceries and pro
visions, our furniture, our hardware—
everything which is imported is sold
at retail at little above the ruling
prices of San Francisco or the East. A
visitor who steps out upon the street
and buys a few oranges on which he
pays two or three hundred per cent,
profit, concludes that Los Angeles is
a place of magnificent charges. He
packs up his trunk, perhaps, ami
moves on. We need twenty-five or
more live Yankee boys to establish
fruit stands on every alternate corner
along our main streets and "bear" the
market. Let us have fruits sold from
door to door in carts or peddled in
baskets by enterprising boys and girls.
Then we can eat the productions of
our own section at a reasonable price.
We can have the best also, iustead of
the refuse now given us, culled from
shipments to our neighbors who are
fortunate enough to live where semi
tropical fruits do not grow.
His Room Better than His Company.
Some time since a correspondent of
the New York Herald visited Santa
Barbara and gave a description of our
fair up-country neighbor which was
far from complimentary. The letter,
which occupied something over*two
colums in the Herald, we read care
fully, and we think without prejudice.
It was, to say the least, very unjust in
almost every proposition. It depreci
ated every advantage and magnified
every disadvantage which the country
might possess. It was ono of those
mean, underhanded expressions of
spleen which differed as much from a
fair, generous criticism as the writer
differs from a gentleman. This inli
vidua! Is now in Son Drego and one of
the papers at that place gives blm a
warm reception after this fashion:
What will become of us now ? A
would-be newspaper aspirant has
landed in our midst, claiming to be an
imp of the New York Herald. Will
the boss of that powerful metropolitan
sheet call his "Tiga" away ? The fact
that he has, been imported into our
midst by dint of begging free passes
from transportation companies aifd
signing his name on hotel registers as
"special, etc.," is sufficient to stamp
him as a relic of by-gone times in the
judgment of all intelligent men.
Newspaper men who travel in this
shape are "dead beats" from A to Z,
and are not countenanced by the craft.
God be praised when we shall hear no
more of them!
In course of time we shall doubtless
see another of these splenetic commu
nications in the New York Herald,
which will make San Diego gnash her
teeth with rage. And then this Mr.
Wormwood will probably pack up his
valise put the bricks back into his
truuk and start for Los Angeles. He
will no doubt lavish a full measure of
venom upon our city, doubly distilled,
as death loves a shining mark, and
dead beats are equally capricious. At
all times we invite an expression of
truth regarding Los Angeles. We
will kindly receive criticism and even
endure misrepresentation; but should
the man throw himself upon our hos
pitality and wilfully belie us, we will
not answer for the Christian forbear
ance which he may rooolv©. Makinp
one's exit from a city on the ragged
edge of a three-cornered rail to the
tune of the "Rogue's March," would
hardly be pleasant under the most
favorable circumstances. We charge
nothing for this suggestion to our San
Diego neighbors and promise nothing
to this Mr. Wormwood should he con
clude to pay us a visit.
A portion of the thirty-live acres
adjoining the residence of Judge King,
owned by the Episcopal Church, is to
be subdivided and sold in lots. The
proceeds will be applied to making
needed improvements about the church
building on Temple street. Some ten
acres of the tract will be reserved, upon
which to erect a denominational school
building. This will place in the mar
ket some of the choicest building lots
to be found in the city.
Mr. Temple's crack team of farm
horses hitched to a buggy stood in

The animals appeared in good flesh
although they were not so heavy, the
exhibition of bono and sinew, howev
er, was something astonishing, and
altogether, we have never seen better
specimens of heavy draft horses.

Letter From Colifornia.
[From the Danville, Illinois, Commercial.]
IiOK AnoeljKS, Cal, Jau. 30, '75.
Dear Old Commercial: An ever
welcome visitor as you are to me, and
have been since I left Danville, yet I
have never written you a line since
my arrival in California. I have
thought many times of doing so, but
business and other correspondence
seemed always to demand my time,
besides I have seen an occasional let
ter from this place to you, written by
the able pen of Judge Clapp, andYnore
recently from 8. P. Smith, botli form
erly of Danville. Having traveled
through the Golden State with a view
of settling permanently, I have been
a careful observer throughout; but
found no place which suited me in
every respect, as did this place. The
mildness of the climate, and the pro
ductiveness of the soil, it seeming to
be adapted to raising every kind of
produce, both Northern and semi
tropical; besides the rapid growth of
the city, the increase of railroad facili
ties, and the vast tide of emigration,
all so plainly speaking the future des
tiny of the place. It also being the
metropolis of Southern California,
what more need one ask to iusure a
I have lived here for one year and a
half, and the improvements of the
city are really wonderful. There
are many facts, which would, no
doubt, interest many of your readers,
pertaining U> this quaint city "The
Queen of the Angels," founded nearly
one hundred years ago, and presents
to this day, to a stranger, the charm
of antiquity with its crooked streets
and queer adobe buildings, scattered
here and there. Theaa, however, do
not lessen the attractions. The streets
arc being graded, and the sidewalks
are nearly made. Also, we boast of
OUf two and three story buildings
which we have without number. The
city itself occupies an area of about
six miles, and embraces, within its
limits, a grand and beautifal view of
hill and plain. From my window I
look upon the hills clothed in green,
and beyond are .the Sierra Madre
mountains, with their lofty snow
capped peaks. . What a contrast!
•Were is not that it would seem too
much like fairy lands. I would say
we gathered flowers with one ha nil,
and, at the same time, snowballs with
the other. I may say distinctly that
we have no Winter here. When we
speak of wandering through orange
groves, bending beneath their yellow
burden; or inhaling their balmy, de
licious atmosphere; of the beautiful
eucalyptus and pepper tree with the
lemon and pomegranite—in fact, one
vast tropical orchard, while the gar
dens, teeming with every variety of
the flowery kingdom, lills the air
with their incomparable odors; does
it sound like Winter - .' of the dreary,
leafless days that you are enjoying, or
enduring, at this time. Ah! I have
spent too many days in your icy
clime to be ignorant of what Winter
means, and can but soliloquize, ugh!
I don't want to be there. It is cold
enough here to make a fire pleasant
and a light overcoat comfortable, and
we have as glorious an atmosphere, as
much enjoyment, as many pleasant
sights ns though it were June. Some
of our Eastern friends, I believe, erro
neously imagine that our Winters are
made up of rainy days; but if they
will stop and think that we do not
see a drop of rain from March until
December, they will readily see that
ram would lit- bailed with grout de
light. However, 1 will correct that
error by saying that our Winters are
far from being rainy ones. It rains
for a few days, then "the sun shines its
warmest and brightest, and the mud
dries up as if by magic—the soil being
very sandy, we have but little mud.
It is then, if ever, that the ladies all
seem to be of one mind, that is to get
the full benefit of clean streets, for it
must be remembered that where no
rain descends for nine months, there
must consequently be some dust.
Some seem bent on shopping, others,
regaled in all the fashions of the day,
are making calls, while the greater
number, with hosts of children, have
gathered on the hill which looks—
from a distance—as if it were sudden
ly changed into a grand park; every
thing is glorious and full of life after a
rain. The rains this year are later
than usual, also heavier, causing in
some parts fearful damages. Marys
ville, in the Northern part of the
State, has suffered heavy loss, owing
to defects in the levee. Large contri
butions are being sent every day,
which will partly alleviats the suffer
ings of the poor. 1 learn through
votir columns that several of the Dan
ville boys contemplate a tour through
California, this Winter. That is
right; come in the Winter and save
yourselves from all the cold blasts
that you can. Do not return without
seeing Beini-tropieal California. No
one could see it and breathe its in
vigorating air without being charmed
—especially in Winter. In summer
the heat is tempered by a cool sea
breeze, and the nights are invariably
cool—just cool enough to require a
blanket ou the bed—insuring perfect
rest and sweet slumber to all.
Our churches and schools are well
worthy of mention, for of these, a
stranger who contemplates settling
here, with a large family, will first
inquire. The Methodist, Presbyterian,
Congregf tionalist aud Episcopalians,
occupy neat and commodious build
ings, while the Baptist, which is more
recently organized, occupies for the
present the Good Templars' Hall. The
Southern Methodist congregation will
soon erect a place of worship, which is
to cost $50,000. The Hegrew Syna
gogue is one of the showiest buildings
iv the city. The Public High School,
under the superintendence of Wm. T.
Lucky, is, in every respect, what one
would expect to find in much larger
cities; it being fitted with all the mod
em appliances, and the Superintend
ent being a gentleman of over thirty
years experience in teaching.is enough
assurance that it can receive the most
advanced students. Los Angeles also
boasts of a public library containing
over 1,»IH) volumes, aud is one of the
chief attractions to tourists; a chess
room is connected with it which is
also used as a smoking and conversa
I will not "spin my yarn" to a more
tiresome length, which I might do by
speaking of our sea-side resorts etc.
