The Mirror has been enlarged to double its former size, and now makes a very presentable appearance. The sailing of the Orizaba lias been postponed until to-morrow. Passen gers will leave on the 3:4. r ) i\ If. train. Mr. Higbie was in the city yester day for the first time since his recent severe illness. Some enterprising persons have erected ti gibbet in Sonora and hung upon it an effigy of Vasqucz. Three hundred and seventeen boxes of oranges and lemons were shipped from tbe depot yesterday. Remember the ball of St. Patrick's Benevolent Society to-morrow night. It will undoubtedly be a grand affair, The Vivian Troupe will give us a farewell entertainment next Tuesday evening. The rafters xcre raised upon the frame of the M. E. Church South yes terday. The shipments of oranges and lem ons now being made from our depot, wtii aggregate in value $4<i,(i(H) per month. A good business opportunity is of fered for an enterprising man with a few hundred dollars capital. See no tice in want column. Mr. John It. Grout, a gentleman of wealth from the East, is registered with his wife and daughter at the Backman House. Society is on the tip-toe of expecta tion over the wedding of Mr. 1. Nor ton and Miss Bertie Green haum, to take place at the Synagogue this morning. A friend from Tustin City, in the East end of this county, informs us that everything is flourishing there. Crops never looked better, and they are not suffering for rain. Attention is directetl to the column advertisement of the "City of Paris," published this morning. The grand Spring opening at this establishment will take place on the 29th inst. Tho many friends of Mr. and Mis. Banning will regret to learn of the death of their infant daughter, who died yesterday morning. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved par ents. Mr. O. F. Robbins, of tlie paper house of Blake, Robbins & Co., San Francisco, is on a visit to this city. This is his first trip to this part of the State and he is well pleased with the progress that everywhere meets his view. A man named Robert Allen com mitted suicide yesterday by taking strychnine, at the boarding house on the corner of Third and Spring streets. He was about 45 years of age and a native of England. ' The desperate act was brought about as the result of a prolongetl debauch. We announce with regret another death in the family of our townsman, Mr. Thos. A. Garey. Yesterday morning, after a brief illness, Mary Julia, aged 17 years, departed this life for an existence in the spirit world. The funeral will take place under the auspices of Los Angeles Grange No. 36 from the family resi dence at 3 i. UL to-day. Mr. J. A. Bell has discovered in the San Fernando mountains, about 28 miles from Los Angeles a large vein of sulphur, being lofeet wide and almost the pure article. In the Immediate vicinity he found a vein of coal that would average about five feet in width. The coal is what is known as black slate anil is very hard. A specimen has been left at this office. Under the name of the Pioneer Building Lot Association another company lias been formed in our city, its object being to parcel out a tract of land adjoining Mr. Griffith's property in East Los Angeles. The following gentlemen were elected officers: Jos. 1). Lynch, President; N. Lindenfield, Vice-President; C. V. Ploennies, Sec retary; D. Botiller, Treasurer. The land of this company has one of the most desirable locations in the East ern part of the city,and will besoltl on the instalment plan and at the very lowest rates. The npplicati' n for a charter for the newly project "! street railway has been held over by the incorporators until the next meeting of the Com mon Council on account of the great press of business before that body. This road runs from Temple Block to the end of the Spring Street Railway, via Temple and Pearl streets, passing over and through a beautiful section of the hill antl valley lands. This road is in the bands of our most enterpris ing, and in fact only actual builders of street roads up to the present time, which fact gives the public full assur ance that there will be no delay in Its early completion. A Beautiful Picture. The corner-stone of the National Capitol was laid by the Masonic fra ternity on the 18th of September, 1892, by George Washington, Acting Grand Master. Washington was Mas ter of Alexandria Lodge No. 22, and the evening previous to tho day on which the corner-stone was laid, he held a meeting to arrange the prelim inaries of the ceremonies. As near as possible this lodge room remains in tact, and Mr. G. L. Reynolds a few years ago had its interior photograph ed, and had inserted correct portraits of the brothers present on the occa sion. The whole was then painted at a cost of many thousand dollars. From this picture Mr. Reynolds had many chromns taken, which he is selling at very reasonable terms. He ia at present in this city, and will be S leased to take the orders of all who esire a rare and beautiful picture. UP IN THE MOUNTAINS. Two Itay* in mid nrouuil Lyon's Sta tloii-Thc Kullroail Tiimiel-A Her culean I'mjccl Tlii! Oil Uegioii-A liri'H-.i Mibjoet But It May Prove a Rich Une — Reliable Information About I Ik- Hiirh Mystetied Section. We had the pleasure of a two day's patear at and around Lyon's Station last week, and while in the section now becoming so full of interest im proved tiie opportunity to dot down a few items for the benefit of our read ers, in making the trip from Ban Fernando, the present terminus of the railroad, to the Station some nine miles further North, we occupied a snug berth on the lop of one of the Telegraph Line's singes, and never have we enjoyed a ride better. Talk about the "POETRY OF MOTION," As found iv the mazy circle or on the tight fantastic toe! It is not a com parison to riding outside a swaying itage-eoaoh at it goes dashing along with its six fresh horses on a jolly round trot. The night air was cool and exhilarating and well lo be appreci ated under good heavy wrappings; the moon and stars, out in full brilliancy, rendered every object along the line almost as distinctly visible as by day light. No wonder that we fell into a poetical humor and saw scenery where otherwise it would have been simply mountains and moonshine. Up the rugged and serpentine road to the "summit," through the deep cut at the top of the mountain and down tlie Other side to the valley, and we were at I.VON'S STATION. Though unpretentious in itself, it is an inviting place for tiie weary deni zen ofthe city, where he can play the recluse if he wish, breathe the invig orating mountain air and banish all thought of care and responsibility. The station proper is a well constructed frame building about 30x60 feet In di mensions and answering at once the purposes of a store, Postoffice, tele graph office, depot and tavern, being, altogether, tlie head cent re of the adja cent, valley. Besides this there is a large Stable, and, back towards the foot-hills on the West, a little cottage half hid by a heavy growth of moun tain oak. This makes up the sum total of Lyon's Station. Upon our arrival we found our old friend Captain Kraszynski in charge, who was doing the honors of mine host In the absence of his brother, the proprietor of the establishment. Tlie Captain is one of those whole-souled men who never does things by halves iv the matter of hospitality, and we have to thank him for the thousand kindly attentions which we experi enced while under his roof-tree and which made our stay so pleasant. THK RAff.UAOI) TITNNEb. Ingoing up the Southern slope of the mountains we passed two camps of railroad graders, whose white tents gave a picturesque setting to the little cations and benches where they nes tled. Other parties are scattered about at convenient points, antl all making preparations for t he grand work ahead. The entire force now numbers some 330 men, under the supervision of Mr. Harris, Superintendent of Construc tion for the Southern Pacific itoad. Since the commencement of opera tions the working parties have been ohiSfly engaged iv making roads, grading approaches and altogether getting a good ready. The line as sur veyed runs almost due North from San Fernando, taking up the cation a little to the West of the Telegraph road. The work of tunneling the mountain is A STUPKNDOUS UNDERTAKING, Which can scarcely be appreciated until one sees the immense walls of rock and contemplates the solid base which must be worked through by th ill, blast and pick, meeting and con quering tlie fastness of Nature inch hy inch. The length of this tunnel will be about 7,000 feet. Last Monday the Southern face was opened antl the real undertaking in baud commenced. It is the intention of the engineers to prosecute the work simultaneously on both sides the mountain and at three intermediate points. At equal distances from the extremities, in clined shafts will be sunk from above to the projected level of tunnel. In each of these shafts two forces will be employed, pushing t heir way In oppo site directions. This will give eight faces, upon which as many parties will work, and, by the nicety of engineer ing skill, all will at last merge into the completed tunnel. Lung and stub born toil will be required to accomplish this, and if at the end ot eighteen mouths a ray of light dashes through the mountain, the most sanguine ex pectations will meet a realization. THE OIL WELLS. Much has been said and written about the San Fernando oil region, and, as hearsay usually makes it, many unreliable reports have gained circulation. The thorough investiga tion of this matter was one of the main objects of our visit to the dis trict, and we shall endeavor to report fairly and fully what we saw. There can be no doubt that oil exists—per haps in large volume —beneath tbe mountains aud valley lying North of Lyons Station. The many SURFACE INDICATIONS Which may be seen in the vicinity would convince the most skeptical on this point. But a grave doubt has been suggested that, as tbe region shows unmistakable signs of volcanic upheaval, perhaps the oil basin has been shattered in like manner as tfie surface. The springs or pools found along the caftons may be, in this event, only the natural seepage through the rocks without indicating any Considerable volume. Be this as it may, the <|uestiou can only be set tled by experiment, and a hundred wells might be bored without striking the oil basin, even ditf it exist. THE TEMPLE WELL . Is the most extensive development that has yet beeu made In the district. It is about seven miles Northwest of Lyons Station, at the head of a deep oafinn. Wo visited it iv company with three others, one of whom was Mr. Chas. Kane, a practical oil well borer, who was on his way up to assist in operating the machinery. Entering a gorge in the mountain some two miles below the well, we wended our way up a newly constructed wagon roatl, which was none of the smoothest, anil wound about in a continuous zig-zag conforming with the natural defile. The oafion grew narrower as we as cended and at last merged into a pass barely wide enough to admit the pas sage of a wagon. Here, on either side, were almost perpendicular walls of rock rising to the height of eighty or ninety feet. Through this a small stream of water found its course, upon the surface of which we could readily see THE SHIMMER OF OIL With its changeable tints of yellow, green and blue. Iv places where a sort of dam was formed by the boul ders, were to be seen thick coatings of (he real petroleum upon the surface, resembling pools of melted tar, the liquid being too thick to trickle through the obstructions and pass oil" witii the stream. Upon emerging from this narrow defile,we saw a little to our right and in a small ravine in the mountain side the object of our search. THK BORINO APPARATUS Of the Temple well comprises a der rick about fifty feet high, a little port able engine, covered by a shed, and a small shanty for the operatives. Eve rything about the place has a sort of mourning aspect, the drills,taekles,ma chinery and structures being bespat tered and coated with the black, oily petroleum. As it was Sunday, the men were not at work, and we found only the cook of the party at home. He knew about as much of the work in hand as a kangaroo does of Chris* tianity, and our most persistent quiz zing only evolved a few grave possi bilities concerning it. We learned af terward, however, that the well had been sunk to a depth of 200 feet. On the proceeding Sunday the workmen had struck oil and set to work pump ing it out. This procedure only lasted about 24 hours, however, and resulted In securing 36 KARKKLS Off PETROLRUM, When the sand through which the well was bored caved iv, and put a quietus upon further proceedings. The operatives are now engaged iv taking out this obstruction and sink ing pipes to prevent similar accidents hereafter. The most sanguine hopes are entertained that oil will be even tually found in good paying quanti ties at this point, and the develop ments thus far made seem to give good grounds for the belief. OTHER OIL CLAIMS. A few rods down the cation from the Temple well, is another flowing well or spring of petroleum, belonging to a Mr. Wiley, from which, we are assur ed, over a thousand barrels have been taken and Shipped to San Francisco. As the market is unfavorable at pres ent, DO effort is made at further devel opments, or even to secure a natural flow. In another cafion three or four miles to the West, is the Pico oil spring, Which is said to produce a superior quality of petroleum; but,without de velopment, it is of small quantity. On the opposite side of the valley, and about three miles East of Lyons' Station, excellent oil indications are also found. Tliey are in a deep cafion and situated similar to the others which we have mentioned. CAPTAIN KRAS7.YNSKT Is the original locator of these claims —eight in number—and still retains a controlling interest in them. At sev eral places along this cafion we saw pools where the petroleum rose to the surface and flowed slowly away. One of these, high up on tlie mountain side, is dubbed " The Chimney," and shows remarkably good indications. Another.called "The Danbury," shows a surface of petroleum about six feet in circumference and is continually bubbling with the gas which rises through it. IN QENERAL We conclude that there is an oil-bear ing stratum at least lo miles in length running Northwest and Southeast and underlying all of the springs and oil claims which we have described. In this there may be an immense basin or chain of basinw, which need only to be tapped by the drill to pour forth their endless wealth upon the fortu nate possessors of the claims anil make a second Venango county of the re gion. But this event lies as yet in the undeveloped future, and we can but patiently await the results of the in vestigation. Religious Services To-Day.
