One of the (xarden Spots of Los Angeles County. RICH AGRICULTURAL LANDS. Wine Rnd Corn Galore—Payin_ In dustries Which Establish the Value of Our Lands. Yesterday a member of the Herald's staff had occasion to visit Downey City. As his business required but little time to transact, and as he had to wait several hours for the afternoon train from Santa Ana by which to return to the city, he took the fine opportunity offered to get a little data about the place. And when you want to know about the resources of a town, where do you go but to the rail road station and get the shipments of pro duce and the receipts of merchandise ? If you know that the agent at such a town is Mr. J. K. Banks, or any man of his intelligence and courtesy you go all the moro confidently that you will get what you want, get it in good shape, and get it without any trouble. Finding Mr. Banks in the office, the newehunter made known his desires and at once was furnished with the following exhibit of the business done by the Southern Pacific Company at that point during a period of six months as fol lows: c:tir;:ENT9 October, 1887.

Merchandise 1,455,760 Here is a grand total of 6,624,935 pounds of produce shipped from Dow ney City in six months. That is at the rate of 13,259,950 pounds for a year. The receipts of merchandise aggregate 7,991,105 pounds. RICH RESOURCES. But elaborate as the above statement is half its force is lost unless the reader observes intelligently what a large part of the produce consists of. There are three wineries in Downey. These crushed 2,860 tone of grapes last year. Tbe av erage output of wine is 150 gallons to the ton of grapes. Here is no less than 384,000 gallons of the precious juices of the generous grape. Sound wines are worth 18 cents per gallon. The value then of the grape crop of Downey is nearly $70,000. How many Western wheat farmers will it take on the average to pocket a gross sum of $70,000 for R single crop of one year? But tbe story is still left half told. A large part of this wine was distilled into brandy. By this means another incre ment of value was added to the product, so that in al} certainty Downey people got in all not less than $100,000 for their grape crop of tbe year 1887. How much an acre will grape-growing return to the grower? Seven tons to the acre is a fair aver age. At 150 gallons to the ton we get 1050 gallons tc the acre. At 18 cents a gallon there is an income of $180 per acre. But do the wine-growers get this? Yea they do, if they are enterprising and as intelligent as those about Downey City. These vignerons have a co-opera tive winery. They crush their own grapes and make their own wine. More than this they do their own distilling. In this way they make $200 an acre profit from this princely industry. Nor has the count vet exhausted the riches of Downey City. Besides the products of their vineyards, the people of this fertile section shipped away no less than twenty dtrloadsof walnuts. The aggregate was 400,000 pounds. The return in cash was over $30,000. A good walnut orchard will pay interest—big in terest on $1,500 an acre. Has Downey City anything more to boast of in the way of crop ? Well, yes— a little. There are now in the warehouse at that place 100 carloads of last year's corn. Tbis means 1,000 tons of corn, and in centals it num bers 20,000. The corn is worth $25,000. This is merely the fag end of the crop which has been carried over from last autumn. It is only a fraction of the crops grown on these rich lands. Many a Downey farmer harvests $50 worth of com to the acre. On these same lands the farmers cut six crops of alfalfa a year. The output is not less | than two tons to the acre per crop, or twelve tons per year. It is worth $10 per ton—a snug income of $00 per acre. NEVER HAD A BOOM ! Poor Downey ! She never had a boim— j and she is not likely to have. When other people were breaking their necks to sell land lo the tenderfeet, the Downeyites would not sell at any price offered. They saw prices go up to $25 an acre with per fect composure. The values got to $50 an acre, the Downey p.ople went on planting vines and walnut trees, growing pumpkins and potatoes in the even tenor of their way. Others wondered when lands got to sell for $100 an acre, but the solid people of Downey were not staggered. The prices rose to $200, still the farmers along the damplands went on pocketing that much per year per acre, and would not sell their farms. They are not selling yet. They will not "sell much for sometime to come. These lands will in no long time be worth $500 per acre in their natural state. With vines and trees they will be worth twioe, three times and four times that figure. WHAT DOWNEY HAS. There are about 700 people within a mile of the postofiice at Downev City. There are four, perhaps six times as many more in the immediate vicinity. There are churches, schools, a bank, stores and such like concom itants of a flourishing neighborhood. The Southern Pacific Company has recently built here one of the pretti est depots in the State. It is 206 feet long by 46 feet wide. It has a large freight room, waiting room, baggage room, etc. It is in charge of Mr. J. K. Banks, a most courteous and efficient of ficial. One of Downey's latest acquisitions is a big Democratic club. There are 100 voters on the roll. When the Steve White welcome-home takes place they will all be in the city in uniform, with torches, banners and transparencies, and they will whoop it up in great style for Cleveland and re form, for Thurman and the old bandana, and for Steve White and tbe St. Louis Convention. Keep your eye on Downey. The Nation is going to hear of it politi cally and materially. Downey is all right! SUCCESSFULLY ORGANIZED. Tlie Cleveland and Tburman Demo cratic Club.

A Dastardly Plot Discovered In Time. A POLITICAL CHALLENGE. Installation of Germania Lodge. The Athletic Club Election. A damnable plot to destroy much valu able property, and in all probability human life, was that accidentally discov ered yesterday afternoon by a man named Burt, proprietor of a little fruit store on the west side of Main street, four houses from the corner of Washing ton street. Recently three new stores have been built at the point indicated. A saloon, drug store and Burt's fruit store occupy the premises. In the rear of Burt's store he has had erected a little frame stable) and therein has been wont to house hia valuable horse, wagon and different ar ticles of merchandise, boxes and the like. Fearful that a fire might occur on his premises on the Fourth, Burt removed his horse and wagon on the previous night to a stable up street. After the Fourth Burt concluded to move his rig back. Pending doing so he proceeded k» thoroughly clean out the stable, conn mencing this work at a little after tare* o'clock yesterday afternoon. When ht started in to clean out the manger iv th* single stall of his stable, Burt was sr_» prised to find a can stowed away under* neath the feed-box. He lifted out the can and was startled to find a piece ot fuse hanging from its side. Burt carefully opened the Hd of the can and found it filled nearly to tho brim with giant powder. The can contained fully three pounds of the terri ble explosive. He carefully placed tbe can and fuse back where he had found them and then notified Police Head quart ers. Chief Cuddy despatched Officers O'Brien and Luis Arnaz to the scene. The Main streot beat is partrolled by Officer Dunne. When O'Brien and Arnaz reached Burt's place they found tbe can and fuse just as Burt had left it. They determined to lie in wait for the would-be anarchist, and telling Dunne to keep away from Burt's prem ises, they concealed themselves. Much to the chagrin of the officers they found that Dunne persisted in hovering about the place. TLey waited until past mid-night and then, assumeing that the guilty party had noted Dunn's appear ance and fled, they returned to the Police Station, bringing with them the fuse. The can of powder they stored away at tbe fruit store. Questioned regarding who might have placed the deadly stuff where it was found, Burt said he could not even imagine. He knew of no man who was his enemy. His business had prospered, and he said he had reason to believe he was a popular tradesman with tbe neigh borhood. His horse and wagon he estimated worth $350. Had the fiend who placed the terrible explosive there, been able, undetected to ignite it, a calamity the awful result of which can be far better imagined than described must needs have followed. Chief Cuddy says he is determined to sift the matter to the bottom, and to-day detectives will go to work on the case. ' A Challeuac. Los Angeles, Cal., July sth, 188 S.
