THURSDAY MAY 25, 1882. Single Copies of the Herald, 5 Cents. Special Notice. Hereafter notices of Companies, societies, churches, etc., will only l>e inserted in the Hkkald at paid advertisements. We reserve, for Places ef Worship, a gratuitous directory, which will appear every Sunday morning. Get Ready for the "Boss" Boom. Elsewhere we reproduce extracts -from the correspondence of the Texas r editors who lately visited Los Angeles. They breathe a rapture, as to the sur roundings of L<)3 Angeles, which is en tirely deserved. When it comes to the statistical portion of this correspond ence numerous and excusable errors are of course encountered. But the one patent fact is that theso gentlemen ac knowledge, with cordial unanimity, that, in visiting Los Angeles, they had a momentary glimpse of the modem edi tion of the Garden of Eden. Their gen erous testimony is all the more valuable from the fact that they received abso lutely no public courtesies at the hands of our people—a fact which we keenly regret. It would not have hurt our nu merous capitalists in the least if they had opened their purse-strings and ten dered some little attention to these ac complished visitors, who, as respects the pen, show more activity than the Brianean hands of the fable of old could have done. When they ar rived at San Fraucisco they were dined and wined aud treated to all the galore developments possiblo in the metropolis of the Pacific Coast. Nevertheless, their splendid tribute to Los Angeles is enhanced by the niggard liness of our people. It is an unbought tribute, wrung from them by the beauty and prodigal outpour of our section. The truth is that the biggest "boom" ever recorded in the variable history of Los Augeles county is ahead for us just now. The Herald, even in the dark days of 1877, never tired in reiterating the fact that, in a very few years, a tre mendous revival was ahead for this, the most charming section on the American continent, perhaps in the world. We have never hesitated to declare that an acre of vineyard in Los Angeles county would yet be worth from $800 to $1000. We can now, under the changed condi tions, return to our original sauguiue programme, with the certainty that, be fore five years have passed, what was once regarded as vaporing is the mere prosaic reality. As to our orange groves, the prospect is even more encouraging, and it would be difficult to place a limit to the possibilities of profit which at tach to them. Certes, the most tremendous "boom" •ver recordod on the Pacific Coast is just ahead for Los Angeles. Our people should get ready for it. A Misconception. One of our late Texas visitors, who wrote to his paper in terms of unmeas ured commendation of the orange groves and vineyards of Los Angeles county, winds up his narrative with the caution that all these poetical aud remunerative eoigues of vantage have already been taken up. This is a great mistake. Per haps one of the most interesting circum stances about the history of development in Los Angeles and San Bernardino coun ties is the fact that, according to the of ficial report of Mr. L. J. Rose, one of the Viticultural Commissioners of the State of California, the sum of one mil lion dollars was realized from vineyards in the two counties named which only oomprised 5716 acres. This was a gross return of nearly $200 to the acre, the expense of cultivating these vineynrds, nearly all of which are located in Los Angeles county, being only about fifteen dollars an acre. It is no exaggeration to say that, in Los Angeles county alone, ther:< are half a million acres adapted to the cultivation of the grape, aud at least one hundred thousand acres which would return heavy profits if planted iv the citrus fruits. Our Texas visitors fell into another error, as respects Los Angeles, which ought to be corrected, viz., they write that irrigation is the basis of all the wonders of vegetation they saw here. That statement is fearfully wide of the mark. There are many vineyards in Los Angeles county which are yielding plen tifully without a particle of irrigation, and the most intelligent judgment is that no irrigation is needed. The superb new vineyard, of six hundred acres, which Mr. L. J. Rose has lately set out on his Sunny Slope property, is in a splendid state of growth, and that with out any irrigation whatever. Even as to our orange groves, they aro really irri gated far too much. The late Col. B. D. Wilson has often said to the writer that eighty gallons of water to the tree yearly are ample for the citrus fruits. The area of Ix>s Angeles coun ty is slightly in excess of three mil lion two hundred thousand acres. If we had chosen to be extravagant, wo could easily, and perhaps truthfully, have doubled the conservative estimate which we have given above as to the area adapted to the cultivation of our most profitable specialties. But we pre fer to be on the safe side: and when we say that, within ten years, Los Angeles county will produce ten million dollars worth of wines, brandies, and the citrus fruits, annually, we aro within, rather than overshooting, the mark. Of course, it requires some degree of local knowl edge to enable our readers to see how absolutely temperate our statements are. The possibilities ahead are really daz zing, and the energy and capital are at hand to make their utilization a matter of the next half decade. In our local columns will be found the true status of the candidates for the several offices which are to be filled this Fail. In view of the fact that even such an ordinarily reliable journal as the Santa Barbara Preu shows itself to be grossly misinformed in tho premises, wm deem it well to make the matter so plain that be who runs may read. Concert of Action Needed. When regard in had to the fact that .the Pacific Coast States have, since 1849, poured fully one thousand five hundred millions of minted gold and silver dollars into the arteries of American commerce —a statement established by reliable statistics —the wonder is that so little consideration is shown by the Congress of the United States to this ('oust. When, in addition to this for midable exhibit, the truth is borno in mind that fully half of that sum meandered in the same direc tion, from sources which could not be made the subject of statistics, the obli gation is still further enhanced. It would be hard to overestimate the importance of this treasure output to tho material development of the United States. But for it the country would still have been comparatively rustic, perhaps to the de cided benefit of its morals, but certainly not of its material status. When it is borne in mind that the sum total of tho precious metals at present iv the United States is very little more than a third of that which was contributed by the two States of California and Nevada, how pitiable would have been the plight of the treasury aud people but for the prodigal output of the Pacific Coaßt? Yet, when it comes to appropriating money for improvements in California and Oregon, or any of the other States of the Pacific -'divide," how tightly Congress draws the national purse strings? Although wo have only one harbor on this side of the continent, to two dozen in the same extent of terri tory on the other, appropriations for this Coast are exceedingly hard to be ob tained, and, when granted, they are doled out in such pitiful sums as to in sult rather than benefit our people. There should be an end to this stuto of things. Appropriations somewhat com mensurate with our needs, and responsive in their amounts to the benefits con ferred on the United States by Cali fornia and the other Pacific States, ought to be accorded to this Coast. But for tho liberal coin outpour of this section the United States would to-day be bankrupt. In stead of having a surplus of the precious metals, as at present, we should be something more than a thousand million dollars worse off than nothing. We need improved harbors, fortifications and eligible public buildings all over this Coast. If there had been, in the past, a hearty concert of action amongst ovr Pacific Coast representatives, we should have had all that is our due. There ought to be such concert in the future. Admirable and painstaking as Senator Farley has been in this regard, one man can't do everything. Henceforth the Pacific Coast members of Congress ought to present a united front when it comes to appropriations needed to de velop this Coast. Only by standing to gether c_u they hope to succeed. " A house divided against itself cannot stand;" and unanimity of action is the sine qua non to getting the just dues of this section fas Congressional marble halls. COURT REPORTS.

The ancient inhabitants of India were remarkably advanced in the art of iron working. The famous iron pillar at Kutab, near Delhi, indicates a skill in tbe manipulation of a large mass of wrought iron which could hardly be sur passed by modern foundries. The pil lar is twenty-three feet eight inches in length, with a circumference of about fifty feet at the base, tapering to about four feet just below its capital. Its total weight is over six tons. It is supposed to date from the year.4ooof onrera. and, if so, has stood exposed to the wind and weather for nearly fifteen centuries with out showing signs of rust—an enduring monument to the skill of the old Indian iron workers.

A few evenings ago a number of Mexicans, with their families, encamped near Igo's ranch and the American laborers being drunk, an attempt was made on the Mexicans to give up their women. This was refused aud shooting and cutting began. When the smoke of battle cleared off seven Mexicans wero found dead aud several wounded. A number of Americans were also wounded, and it is expected that three will die. Fire at Tucson.

THE FAMOUS OPERA INGERS. Annie Louise Carey and Clara Louise Kellogg are beyond question tho most famous opera singers of modern times. Iv fact they have been universally ac knowledged to be the leaders of their profession, as well as ladies of large ex perience and particularly good taste. They have probably traveled more ex tensively than any ladies on the stage, and, as a consequence, have had excel lent opportunities of judging of the merits of different countries and t'reir productions. It is certainly a very great credit to California and tho balmy semi tropical climate of the Pacific, to have had them pronounce Slaven's Yosemite Cologne by far tbe best they have ever used in any country.

The Sonora valley is becoming thor oughly Americanized, and nearly all tho fancy mineral deposits are gradually falling into the hands of the shrewd Yankees. The Arispo district, which has a world-wide fame for the extent and richness of its mineral deposits, has now an American population nearly equal to the natives of the soil. Those foreigners on the Sonora soil are neither drOMI nor drunkards, but hard-working, intelligent men, whose presence repre sent untold wealth to any country. They are nearly all engaged in mining enterprises, though a few have branched olTinto mercantile pursuit!'., the pres ence of so many foreigners guaranteeing a respectable portion of trade. The principal mineral bed of Sonora yet discovered is situated about twenty live miles southeast of Arispe. This is the groat Mecca of tho American pros pector and mining man. Here comes the weary prospector and his patient burro, the enterprising capitalist and hard-fisted day laborer, all eager to en gage in the pursuit most congenial to his tastes. From Mr. D. T. Dunham, who arrived here ou Sunday evening from Sinaquipo, Sonora, we learn that several Amoricau companies are working mines in that vicinity. Mr. Dunham is a stockholder iv tho Santa Maria Gold and Silver Min ing Company, a corporation having head quarters at 39 Broadway, New York. This company is working nino mines, and have ordered and paid 5200,000 for a sixty-stamp mill that will be in opera tion in less than six mouths. The princi pal mines of tWis group are the Santa Maria, Carmeu, San Francisco aud Gran adita. The Carmen has been worked for more than 200 years, and is a grand mineral bed. It was abandoned by the original owners about ten years ago on account of Indian trouble, and lay iv a dormant state until resurrected by the present proprietors a few years ago. It was in a horrible state when the compa ny began to work it. Filth, mud and water abounded, and it took the present owners nearly a year to clean it out. It is now opened up in good working con dition, so that a hundred tons of ore can bo extracted daily. The nine mines owned by the company are situated iv a group within a radius of a mile, and not more than six miles directly to the So nora river, where the mill will be erect ed. A first-class wagon road has been graded from the mines to the mill, and everything is in readiness to start as soon as the contractors have the mill ready for action. Barrujila, a station on the Sonora railroad, is eighty-five miles west of the mill site, aud a good wagon road ia now being built by the company between the two places. The mines have all been put la good working condition, the old shafts and drifts have been straightened and widened. Steam hoisting works will bo placed in operation over several of the mines in a few days and the work of hauling ore to the mill site will com mence. About 100 American miners and 100 natives are employed. The company have erected several substantial buildings for offices and boarding houses, and improvements of a permanent nature are being made daily. Developments of an important character have lately been made in tho San Francisco and Garanditas, but tho com pany are reticent about the matter, pre ferring to keep the matter to themselves for some time. Mr. Dunham states that tho Mexican government and the people treat foreign enterprises with much kindness and consideration, and welcome the arrival of American capital to develop the re sources of the country. Mr. Dunham is general agent of the company, repre senting the Eastern stockholders, aud Mr. R. E. Meyer, an old and competent mining man, is the superintendent. — Tombstone Epitaph. Mr. Charles Linden, of the Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences, has pub lished a paper on the domestication of our wild ducks. He found that the only kinds which made themselves at home in the barnyard were the mallard, dusky duck and the Canada goose, "the prog eny of which prospered and attained a greater weight and size than the ordi nary domesticated stock. Some ot them aro still living and betray in many in stances a tendency to revert in point of plumage to their original condition, while the majority have become quite metamorphosed into ordinary barnyard fowl." These ducks wero taken when very young or raised from eggs. HOTEL ARRIVALS YESTERDAY. PICO HOUSE.
