INTERESTING RAILWAY TOPICS. lotelllgont Premutation of tho Statistics of Loa Aagelea Production -Rep'y of the Pros td.nt o! tho Atlantic and Paciflo flailway. Editor Los Angeles Herald: I hand you herewith a copy of re cent correspondence ou tbe subject of the extension of the Atlantic & Pacilio Railroad to Los Angeles and tho coast oountiee north which will deeply interest every land owner and fruit-grower in the county. It has a special signifi cance In view of the recent an nouncement in San Francisco pa pers that tho Atlantic & Pacific management has definitely aban doned the idea of entering South ern California at ail, but had tie olded to turn north at Callville, before reaching the Colorado, and enter the State ouly via the Cali fornia "Central route, connecting therewith In Southern Utah. Be lieving that tbe significance of Mr. Null's reply to my memorial can not be fully appreciated without tbe printing of tbe former, which, moreover, contains facts and sug gestions covering tiro whole ground, which, at this juncture, should, In my judgment, be prom inently in the thought and speech of every man interested in the growth of Ijh Angeles county, I respectfully ask you to print the memorial, as well us tbo answer, in full. Yours truly, C. T. Hopkins. Han Francisco, Oct.stb, 1881. To H C Null, Esq., President of the Allantio & paciflo R. R Co , W Jb. Strong, Eg , President of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Ft R. It Co , Boston, Mass.: , Uentlemkn: Havlug recently been Informed by President Nutt that the route of tbe Atlantic and Pacific Railroad through South-in California is uot yet nettled upon, notwithstanding the well known old surveys through Los Augeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and the coast counties, along which line a large population coufiJcutly ex pects the road to he located, and tbat in ail probability you will he likelyto proceed direct from the Needles by the most practicable pass into the San Joaquin valley, tbat leaving Los Angeles county 100 miles or co to oue side, I feel compelled to draw your earnest at tention to the serious loss of freight that will result Irom such a course, uuless It be your intention to con struct a brauch lino lo tap tbe hut mess of that rich and productive oounty, Ut course a traok crossing the Mohave Desert will furuisn uo way freight or travel whatsoever. II your branch from Han Diego connects with Iho main line north of tbe Sierra Mud re range it will do lbe busiuess of the Uiveiside Colony, 9 miles couiLi of Colton, hut will be too far distant from Los Angeles to be of any beueiit to tbe people there, except by conueo tion over tho Southern Pacific, 60 miles between Los Augeles uud Colton. And I assure you, that having beeu exposed since lis con struction to the peculiar methods of business praaticed by that mon opoly, we are satisfied that our re sources oau never be properly de veloped if we have no oilier de pendence for our transportation. Our people would desert it for any fair dealing uud strong competitor between tho same points, with as Cordial hii unanimity as a 6warui ot locusts leaving a burned prairie for a Held of young olover. Unquestionably the rising inter est of most value in this State is thn growing of fruit, Including the vine. Wheat. Is, of course, our great staple at present, uud freight thereon from the farms to the sea ports furnishes v considerable item in our railroad earnings; but, as yet, tbe exportation of thut article Is carried on entirely by shipping; nor do our merchants expect that It can ever be handled by railroads, in competition with tbe Ocean, advantageously either to the roads or the shippers. Even if this proves to be v mistake It seems to us that the Soutberu Pacific, when completed to New Orleans, will command what there is in this busiuess, on account of its follow ing the shortest route to an Atlan tic port. But of late years the ravages of tho phylloxera among the vlue yards of France has so greatly In creased tbe market for California wines and brandies, that vineyards are being planted in all directions. E-peoiolly iv Xios Angeles county is the growth of this interest para mount, owing to its great natural advantages al soil, climate and water for irrigation. Acoordiog to ihe report of the State Board of Equalization of 1880, the agricultural products of Los Angeles county in 1879 (since greatly increased) were as follows, exolusive of grain, hay, vegetu bles and live stock: Acres undsr cultivation (all ci ops) 130,0(0 Castor beaus—pounds . 6&,00 l) Hops " - 241,000 loiiucoe " LS6 UOO Butter " 85,01,0 Cb<ese '* - 66, i ou Wool " - !.7 7,890 Honey " ~ - 4ioi)oii Wlio-• gallons _.2,019.'00 brand* " ss.ouo t.enaion trees—number — .S3 200 Otanico " " « « IW.UOu olive " " — K.OOO Applo ■• " .— - 50.500 Pear " " - MIS rig " " ...-™ 7,»25 plum " M mm 3,23 PouoU '■ " ...... 21,675 Quinoe •• •' 1.000 (j. pe vines—aero «,*3> urai.es—ton*(s tones perucie> 81,i7fi MUM nl Irrigating dtlcbes 313 AcriS Irrigated (ouhards, vlne yaids punctually, 52,516 Population ot o unty.aoout c 5 oio ii city, " 15,010 Now if each of tlio 222,250 or augeand lemon trees, to suy noth ing ot the other fruits, should pro (luob au anuual crop of only 5(10, the aggregate protluoe would reach 111,125,000 oranges and lemons, equal at 170 to tne box to 529,168 boxes, or 2170 oar loads of 800 boxes each. This would require ft>r their transportation 12 earn daily during the six mouths from Jjtnu.iry Ist to Juue 80th of tbe crop season. Of oourse no such crop has yet beeu grown, beoause only v small portion of all the trees planted are yet in full bearing, but In three years from now the crop will ap. ■proximate the above figures, aud unless transportation be tben sup plied, with quick transit and at suoh rutes as the fruit will bear, tbe labor and expense laid out by the growers must all ba lost, lor the orange will not keep, nor oan It be dried or utilized in any other way than to be eaten fresh, nor will tbe S»u Francisco market re quire one-tenth of the crop. Moreover, tho estimate of 600 orauges and lemons per tree is only half (he usual estimate for trees 15 years old and upwards, when prop erly oared for, while 20 year old (rees of(en bear 3,000 to 6,000 eaoh, aud many persons believe that the number of trees reported by tbe County Assesßor is tar below ihs truth; that tho actual number is nearer 500,000 than the number officially reported. Take now ttie grape crop, 31,000 tone. Doubtless tbe acreage iv erares will in three years reach 25.000 to 30,0(10 aores, instead or tba 6,235 acres reported iv 1879; for every oue who oau is now plant ing vineyards with reference to wine and brandy making. But $20 per ton is the average price payable for grape* Tor these pur poses, or for making ralslnx; equal to one cent per pound. Yet these grapes sell for table use at the East lor 26 cents to $1 per pound, ao cording to place and season. If they could be sold ail over the East at 10 cents per pound, tbe de maud for them would be universal aud practioally limitless. If tbey could be transported by express trains at 2 cents instead of the 5 cents charged by the monopoly to a favored few, and tbo retailer be satisfied with a proilt of 5 cents, tbe grower could realize 3 cents, or three times their present value for wine making. What an Impetus this additional price would give to the busiuess! It would increase the pn tiuot of au acre from $100 to $300 on .11 table grapeß thut went E*at. And if tbe export weie uo Kieater than the present yield, tbe tonnage movement would re quire 3,100 oars Iroru Los Augeles oounty alone between August Ist and December Ist uud beiore the orange and lemon crop would be ready for picking. The same facts exist as to plums, pears, (the celebrated California Bartlett pears nro iv deraaud everywhere, and Ihey now bring 25 cents apiecn In Eastern cities), apricots, dga, peaches, limes pome granates, quinces, »«< perhape melons, loqunts, Japauese persim mons, and other fruits, whose per fection with us is iv suolt oontrast to tue possibilities of any Eistero climate that all such fruits would soil anywhere at good prioes, if only quick aud cheap transporta tion could ba secured. As to tliH future growth possible to this business, consider that the area of Los Angeles oounty (which Is v sort of oasis aruiii vast deserts) is 1,221,625 acres, of whioh only 62, --515 acres, or about 4J per oent., is yet under irrlgatiou and conse quent cultivatiou iv orohards aud vineyards; that tbs best advertise ment of such a region, us a field for immigration, is the placing of iis products upon the tables of those wbo may desire to Immigrate; and that eveiy new cultivator, 8 > lv* troiuosd, would, with his family, add to the demand for transporta tion ol produce, besides increasing the general business of tbe loid. Compare tbe magnificent, field for railroud business now >IF ring to tbe Atlantic aud Pacific and oouuectiug mads with tbe result of tbe niggardly polioy ami monopo lizing practices of tbo preseut roads. The appended table shows that during ten mouths of the twelve ending Aug, 31, 1881, the total shipment of green fruits from the whole State was only 0 088,588 pouuds, or an average of but 1} oaf loads per day ! These furnished to each of tbo 49,000,000 of our con sumers t-u-t of the Rocky Moun tains about v oouple of biti-e of our fruit for v yeai's rations I What wonder that our grapes rctuil in Chicago and Boston at 40 cents per pound, pears ut 25 cents each, aud three plums for v quarter? Aud this year the shipment was three limes the Usual average—the fruit crep East having beeu a failure. Ca'u uny one doubt that 20 car loads a day, properly distribuied, would apt have supplied the demaud 1 Moreover, the fruit crop with us has been so abuudunt that half tbe orange crop was not gathered the past year, and a large proportion of Other kinds would have perished on the ground for want of a mar ket had not numerous canneries and dryers beeu established, which buy the fruit at prices just suffi cient to save the trees from being cut dowu, but not sufficient to en courage increased ucreagu lv orch ards or lo promote immigration into the State for the purpose of engaging in tbat business. Now us tbe route of tbe Atlan tic und Paciflo aud Atchison St To peka Railroads Is the shortest pos sible between Southern California and tho central points of distribu tion lv the Northern States, as its elevation along tho Southern slopes of the Rocky Mountains gives it a cooler climate iv summer than tbe Southern or Texas Paci fic, while it is below tbe Hue of the snows which lv winter make the Central and Union lines impracti cable for fruit carriage, the view I wish to impress upon you is, tbat you can, if so disposed, create a much greater tonnage movement in fresh fruits than in anything else, and do a much larger bu«i uess in that specialty than any other railroad can; while at lbe same time you can populate South ern California with the rigbt kind of people, and go ou Increasing the busiuess of your roads from year to year more quickly than any other road Is likely lo do. At preseut tbe inducement to orange growers is so poor that the chances are in favor of an abatement of the in cessunt labor required to keep up the orchards, lv default or which the trees will soon begiu to disap pear and, of course, a stop will be put to the planting of young or r Inn mm. But if you decide now to ruu at least a branch line lo Los Augeles oity, through tbe San Ga briel Valley, and especially as near L'asadeua us the grade will permit; and if you will immediately Klve notice, authoritatively, to tbe peo ple of that county, that yon in tend tn rua express trains of re fi iterator aan, (If neoessary) for the oarrlsgS of fresh fruits, aud that your uharges for that oarriuge wlil*uot exceed, say 2 cents per pound on grupes, peurs, Ao , und SI per box nn orunges, limes aud lemons, to St. I, mis or Chicago, with lesser proportionate freights to intermediate poiuts, you would at once iufuse au energy into the fruit business suoh as it has never known. As the result, by tbe time you were ready for business, you would find thousands of oar loads of fruit ready for transporta tion, and the way freight from that oounty alone of more value than your through business to aud from San Franolsoo, I trust, gentlemen, tbat this memorial will have tbe effeot to induce you to inquire Into tbe fa«4s herein stated, and if found true, tbat you will see it to be to your interest to supply the needed transportation to our southern country in some such manner ss I have pointed out. Tbe Southern Paciflo are building tlieirroid with the expressed Intenlion of carry ing wheat all the way to New Or leans, 2.000 miles or more by rail, aud thence by steamers 4 000 miles further to Liverpool, in competi tion with sailing ships via Cape Horn, which will necessitate a charge for freight not exceeding let per ton for tbe whole 6,000 miles It this be practicable cannot your roads carry freight half that dis tance for twice tne freight uud find tbe busiuess pr< fltable in propor tion, eveu though express time were made ou all fruit trains and refrigerator oars used for a portion of the business? Our people are at a loss to conceive the otject ot locat ing a line like that ot tbe Califor nia Central ucross the line of pro duction and population, crossing tho riierras at their highest poiut, thence running through the unin habited deserts of Southern Ne vada and Utah to Iron City, Ne vada, aud oonneoting with the A & P. via Callville, probably tbe roughest route to build, the most expensive to operate and the least productive In present or prospect ive way freights that could be se lected; while there seems to be a disposition to avoid thosu counties of California tbat would yield the earliest as well as tbe largest re turns in way freights and be far oheaper to build aud operate. I send you several documents from which you can gather many facts bearing ou tbe questions above dlsoutsed, aud in the hope of receiving a fuvorable reply, I am Very respectfully yours, 0. T.

You certainly make a very fine showing of tbe prospective business of tho Coast counties, and such us will make it for our interest to thoroughly investigate before we definitely deoide upon a perma nent looation of our line and branches in California. At tbe present time I can only say , to you that we are doing as yet nothing in California, excepting to prosecute our surveys under Mr. L.
