One of the finest improvements in

be built up. The stores will be just
half as large as they are now, and, as
the Important has a very large stock
on hand, they will not have half room
-enough for their goods and in order to
prevent them from being damaged by

One of the most effective steps that
could be taken toward the breaking
up of the land monopoly which ex
ists in the San Joaquin Valley and
other portions of the State, would bo
the inauguration of a general or State
system of irrigation. If the revenue
necessary to cai ry out the scheme is
raised from the land benefited, the as
sessment on the large tracts now held
by men who will neither cultivate
them nor permit others to do so, will
be so heavy that tbey will soon realize
the necessity for realizing from their
lands something more than the mere
rental for sheep range, ln the prepa
ration of a bill looking to the passage
of an irrigation law, this important
consideration should be kept steadily
The Railroad Prospect.
In our local columns will be found
a paragraph from the Sail Francisco
almost confirms tbe views
of the Herald expressed some weeks
since, that the Los Angeles and Inde
pendence Railroad would sortn form a
part of a trans-continental road which
would make this city its Western ter
minus. It appears that Jay Gould,
who now has a heavy interest is the
Union Pacific road, isanxious-to effect
direct railroad communication with
this part of the coast, and to that end
he is consulting with Senator Jones
on the practicability of connecting the
road from this city with the Utah
Central. If this enterprise is carried
out it will be productive of grand re
sults to this part of the State. The
road will pass through a rich mineral
section, and through extensive coal
fields. It will cause the immediate
development of these gold and silver
mines, and bring into market the pro
duct of the coal fields. The through
road will be worth millions of dollars
annually to Southern California.
We fully endorse an article in a late
number of the Express on opening
the streets. There are a number of
streets in the city which must be
opened and there are several others
that need straightening. The doing
of this work is but a question of time,
and there is uo time like the present
for doing what ought to be done. It
will cost citizens and city less to open
and straighten streets now than here
after. Property is rapidly increasing
in value and the longer the work is
put off the greater the cost and the
greater the necessity. The obstruc
tions in Los Augeles street should be
removed at once and intersecting
streets with Main and San Pedro
streets and with other streets running
parallel with these are becoming so
necessary that their opening cannot
be much longer delayed. We desire
to impress it. upon the Council that
these improvements can be made at
less cost now than hereafter. In San
Francisco the custom is to assess the
property enhanced in value by the
opening of new streets to pay for the
private property used in the opening.
This plan may be adopted here to a
great extent and the expense to the
city thus greatly reduced. If the
city would keep pace in appearance
with her growth and prosperity, she
must make straight streets of her
crooked by-ways anil open the thor
oughfares needed for the prosecution
of Iter commercial pursuits.
Insult to Immigrants.
We presume that if the immigrants
now coming into this State were told
that they were a different class of peo
ple from those who came here in '49;
that they were wanting in the energy,
enterprise aud industry which char
acterized the early settlers, they would
deny the imputation and assert them
selves the equal iv manhood and in
dustry of any who have preceded
them. We imagine that the people
coming here now are coming on their
own responsibility and expect to rely
on their own means and efforts for
the support of themselves and families.
Yet, such does not seem to be the con
clusion of many of California's people
and journals. We hear of prepara
tions for the immigrants and in one
or two instances charitable individu
als have suggested the establishment
of soup houses at which the impecun
ious Immigrant might obtain the
means to keep soul and body together
without money and without price.
However well these propositions may
be meant, we cannot but regard them
as libels on our State and insults to
the men and women seeking homes
on the Pacific coast. Bureaus of in
formation, circulars, pamphlets and
other means for enabling the new
comer to inform himself as to the
most desirable place to locate, are all
very well and will serve a good purpose,
but the assumption that immigrants
are paupers, beggers and alms-takers,
is neither creditable to those now here
nor those on their way here. We do
not believe that many of tbe immi
grants now coming to California will
patronize free soup houses, and we
hope they are not a class who will
thank us for extending them such
liberal, though thin, hospitality. The
State will not be benefited by the in
flux of such people, and should they
come, we had much rather subscribe
to a fund to send them back to the
place from whence they came, than to
induce them to remain by the dispen
sation of free soup.
In view of the fact that thousands
of persons in the East are now seek
ing information relative to the soil
and climate of California, for the pur
pose of definitely determining whether
they shall or shall not seek homes
there, and in order to controvert the
misrepresentations of Southern Cali
fornia which the San Francisco and
Sacramento papers seem determined
to keep before their readers, we have a
proposition to make to our Chamber
of Commerce aud to those of our citi
zens interested iv drawing to this part
of the State a desirable class of immi
gration. It is that they adopt some
means for placing in the hatids of in
tended immigrants copies of the local
papers. The weekly Issues of the
Herald and of the other papers pub
lished in this city contain a vast
amount of reliable Information con
cerning Southern California, of the
character which persons who contem
plate coming to this State most desire.
Fourteen months ago the Herald
commenced the work of describing
Los Angeles Valley—its soil, climate,
resources, its preseut condition and
future prospects. We have steadily
applied ourselves to the task up to the
present time, and as a result of our
labor we point to the hundreds of fam
ilies now residents of this valley who
testify that they were induced to come
here through information obtained
from the columns of the Weekly
Herald. This source of information
may be greatly enlarged by the
Chamber of Commerce and wealthy
individuals ordering and sending East
our weekly papers in larger numbers
than are sent from the offices of pub
lication. The plan is adopted in the
middle portions of the State and as
the papers sent from there contain
nothing favorable of Southern Califor
nia, it behooves our people to meet
those misrepresentations with the
facts, the evidence of which is found
in our own papers.
Los Angeles Choral Society.
Editor Herald: For one, I very
much regret that so few of our citi
zens were present at the concert given
last week by this society, ami also
that such brief aud unsatisfactory re
ports were published by the daily pa
pers. Many of the most distinguished
musicians of this city have voluntar
ily associated themselves together
under the leadership of Prof. Havell,
not only for musical improvement,
but for the purpose of elevating the
standard of musical entertainments
and of the public taste. The necessity
for sucli an organization has long been
felt, and this effort to supply the want
is worthy the highest commendation.
The members of the Choral Society
are all personally and favorably
known in our city as ladiesand gentle
men of real worth, of fine musical
taste and eminent artistic ability, cer
tainly not second to any of the trav
eling troupes which have drawn
crowded houses during the past Win
ter. After a few weeks careful prepa
tion, a programme of real interest was
prepared. The selections were in
every instance adapted to a cultivated
popular taste and consisted of solos,
duetts, quartettes and choruses—a
choice variety. Every part was well
sustained. Probably no musical en
tertainment ever given iv our city
displayed finer musical talent, greater
correctness of execution or a higher
degree of cultivation The expression
of sentiment was natural and forcible.
This was especially apparent in the
solos sung by Mrs. Stoneman and Miss
Edelman. As a musical entertain
ment, this first concert was a success
in the highest and truest sense. It
was a benefit given in and of one of
our churches and thus evinced a spirit
of noble liberality and generous be
nevolence worthy the highest praise.
As it is the province of music to cast a
refining and elevating influence over
tbe soul, this manifestation of real
charity struck a cord of deeper har
mony than ever vibrated from lute or
harp. It is to be hoped that the mem
bers of the Choral Society will take
courage and persevere in their very
laudable undertaking and that by
their superior skill and earnest efforts
they will overcome all indifference
ana soon enjoy, as they deserve, the
respect, confidence and patronage of
the community. \V.

and a quorum being present, the following
resolution was offered by Dr. John S. Griffin
and unanimously adopted:
Jtesofrorf. That Mai. Ben. C. Truman, Hon.
H. K. S.O'Melveny and Hon. F. A. MoDougall

To tho President and Directors and Stockhold

The undersigned Committee, to whom was
referred the subject of Increasing the stock of
the corporation and ascertalng the debts of
said corporation required to be paid as soon
as practicable, respectfully reports that by a
vote of the stockholders at t regular meeting

That upon examination of the Articles of
Incorporation on file in the Clerk's oflice, as
well as upon reading and examining the Con

recorded among its proceedings.
We are, therefore, ofthe opinion that no le
