nouncement in tbe morning papers of an
attachment proceeding begun yesterday
by tbe brokerage firm of Keene, Bodiaie
& Company against James and John
Hunter, nnder tbe fraudulent debtor

An Efficient Remedy Invented by
an American Clergyman.

Roosevelt, at Birdeaux, has submitted
to the State Department his report on
the wine harvest of Prince for IS-ti. It
shows a decrease of $3,472,806 hecto
litres from the preceding year, and the
quality of the vintaga is mediocre and
poor io alcoholic property. Roosevelt
says tbe causes mentioned as affording
an unfavorable yield bave been accen
tuated by tbe continual develop
ment of the phylloxera aud of mildew,
two plagues tbat, for several years, have
been ateidily devastating Ibe vineyards
of Prance. The mildew is rapid
ly increasing everywhere. Dur
ing tbe past year it appeared
iv two forms—mildew proper, or that
which attacks tbo leaf and that which
attacks the grapes, drying the young
fruit, and thereby preventing its ma
turity Many well known and several
new inventions to distribute insecticides
for the extermination of these plagues
bave been tried, aud as far as applied,
have proved most succes-ful this season.
One is tbe invention and property of an
American, Rev. Walter E. Griffin, of
Brooklyn, N. V., wbo has invented an
ingeniously contrived machine, so fi'ted
and arranged as to apply and distribute
the curative powder or liquid directly to
'he vines. Attached to tbe machines
are two soft "sw>-ep«," held by flexible
springs which, by the rotation of the
wheels, move in suoh a manner as to
completely sweep all clinging insects
from tho vines, without injury to tbe
plants. They remove the bark where
ihe winter egg is deposited, and at Ihe
same time distribute tbe insecticide di
rectly on tbe spot where the egg is

Au Insufficiency of Sprinkling
Carts In the Cliy.
There is mush complaint about the
sprinkling of streets in this city. The
dust gets by far the best of the carts and
is reigning triumphant. Many graded
streets never feel the gentle influence of
water except wben it pleases the Powers
on high to open tbe sluice gates a little.
The contractor, Mr. Donegan, is paid so
much for each cart, and the Board of
Health says how many carts there shall
be. At present this liberal body has or
dained that twelve sprinkling carts shall
be kept nt work allaying tbe dust.
There must be something the matter
wi h the Board of Health. The
water from twelve carts sprinkled on
the streets of Los Angelea lasts as
long and has as much effectas a June
fr st in a region warmer than this.
There should be from twenty to twenty
five carls constantly at work. It will
coat a little more, but it will give the
people some relief and tbe effect will be
apparent. The Superintendent of Streets
presents a weekly pay-roll, ranging from
$450 to $700 per week. Cut him down
a little aud put the extra money into
sprinkling the streets and ridding the
city of the intolerable dust that now
makes life a burden and ruins clothes,
furniture and everything else. The
Board of Health should take immediate
action on this matter. There are other
things to be considered in a oity besides
a few cases of smallpox.

The Flower Festival Society
Has announced the intention of having
a Festival register at the Exposition
building during the two weeka ot the
flower show. It may interest some to
know that the register will be indexed
for the different States, and each mdi*
vidual will be requested to register after
his name not the State in which he may
at present reside, but that of which he
is a native.
Probably no oily of the Union can
boast representatives from more States
than Los Angeles can, if we consider
residents alone; and the influx of stran
gers who are here upon visits only, will
add largely to that number.
Tbe rivalry between the many States
will doubtless be earnest. The present
intention ia to recognize, in some public
way, the State tbat, on the last day of
the Festival, can show the longest list
upon the register. Tho trifling charge
of five cents will be asked for the privi
lege of adding a name to the list of one's
nativo State.
Verona's Testimony.
Yesterday morning major nuraw d<hi
filed an affidavit in the Superior Court
stating that Verona Baldwin was an
important witneaa in tbe five cases of E
J. Baldwin against Horaoe Bell for
hbel, etc., and that upon informatienhe
was led to believe that she waa abont to
leave the State before tbe causes will
come up for trial. He therefore asked
an order of the oonrt direoting that
Verona Baldwin's testimony be taken in
the form ot a deposition before some
Notary Publio. Jndge Branson ordered
that her deposition be taken before A.
Kohler on Maroh 301b.
Several Old Cases Unearthed—
The Patlente Nearly Well.
The advantages of districting the city
for the purpose of house to house vac
cination are now made apparent. Yes
terday morning the physicians, while
visiting the district of Alameda street,
in the neighborhood of Naud's ware
house, found directly opposite, a house
with the blinds closed and the doors
locked. Upon being refused admittance
they called upon the police, and an en
trance was foroed. They found that
two Mexican families resided in the
house, and eight members belonging te
both were afflicted with tbe smallpox,
most of whom were in the convalescent
tsge. These cases had been concealed
for some time, and it was found that
■ here had been but little communication
with the outside, the method of ihe
Mexicans being to olose the blinds, doors
and windows and abut themselves in as
soon as the diaease makes itself appar
ent The Health Officers, in making
their rounds, unearth all suoh conceal
ment. This house will be quarantined.
Another Mexican was found in a room
on Buena Vista street. This was re
ported some days, ago, but wben the
Health Officers visited tbe place they
could find uo trace of a skk person.
Yesterday, however, they found a door
locked with a padlock, whioh they broke
open and found the man, nearly recov
ered. He was sent to the smallpox hos
Dr. Hagan thinks there ia nothing to
be alarmed at in tbe situation, for most
of the cases discovered were convales
cents, and bad not come in contact with
other people to any great extent. Then
the house-to-house vaccination is pro
ceeding satisfactorily, and many families
who have never been vaocinated before
have been unearthed. The weather is
also against the spread of the disease.
County Recorder Frank A. Gibson
has for several days been troubled with
a suspicious eruption, and as it closely
resemb'ed smallpox it was deemed best
yesterday to remove Mr. Gibson from
his borne. This was done, and he was
quarantined iv a house among the bills
north of tbe city. List night the phy
sician in attendance on Mr. Gibson
stated positively that the gentleman
is not afflicted with the smallpox.
It waa also reported that Miss Cook,
a young lady who has been writing in
the Clerk's offioe had the smallpox. This
is most emphatically denied by medical
authority. Miss Cook is sick at her
home on Sixth street, but she is not suf
fering from smallpox. Thus it will be
seen that for ten days there haa not been
a case of smallpox discovered, exoept
among the Mexicans.
There is some difficulty being experi
enced in getting competent physicians to
attend tbe patients at the smallpox hos
pital. The doctors claim that the com
pensation offered, $200 per month, is
too little. An effort is being made to
get Dr. W. H. Page, a gentleman of
Urge experience, formerly oity physician
of Boston, and who practiced for some
time in New Mexico when smallpox
was rrrntßliiial. It aeeept ths amilinn.

Mr. George W. Burton.
Mr. George W. Burton, formerly of
the Herald, has opened a real estate
office at 239 Main street, in tbe rooms
occupied by the California Southern
Railway Company. It is a part of the
ethics of newspaperiug that little good
or bad is said about a newspaper man.
But now tbat Burton has deliberately
deserted a profession which boasts no
height too elevated for him to climb or
adorn, the papers are at full liberty to
let slip the doga of war or otherwise on
