RICH AGRICULTURAL LANDS.

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

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!

REPORTORIAL DASH.
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.
