THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING. AUGUST 30. 1888, GLAD TO GET BACK. Experience* of an Angeleno In tne East. Mr. A. J. Hechtman, the Union Pa cific's representative in this city, re turned yesterday from an extended tour through the Eastern States. He says that he was literally besieged with per sons asking information about Los Ange les county and that there is no doubt but that there will be an enormous rush here this winter. On the train that he re turned to the coast were six families from Rhode Island on their way to settle here and they told him that eighteen more parties from the same town from which they started would also be on their way in a few days. Mr. Hechtman said that he did not see anything in the East that could not be obtained here and on the other hand there were many things that he could not get there which he could here. Business is rather quiet, especially in the Northwest, and a real estate depression is noticed in a good many of the cities. He said that he did not see in the many places he visited, any community as flourishing and lively as that of this city. He encountered some warm weather on his way home it being 92 degrees at Omaha as he passed through it on Saturday night. The effect of the heat is huwever quite different in California to the East. At Omaha it was positively enervating at 92 degrees, in Nevada at 102 degrees it was not so op pressive, and when the train passed through Lathrop on Tuesday the passen gers from the East could hardly credit the fact that tbe glai.s was registering 111 degrees for it did not seem to be really so warm as it had been at Omaha. THE TRUTH. Hon. J. Marion Ilrooks Replies to a "Times" Statement. Editors Herald—l notice in the issue of the Timet of this morning the follow ing under tbe head of "Herald and Gen eral Vandever": "In a Jesuitical sense this may be true; in a straightforward, manly sense, it is false. The facts are that the original resolution was written in the convention hall by one member of the Herald staff at the instigation of another member of the same staff. The resolution was taken to J. Marion Brooks, who found it so rabid in its language that, fearing for its fate should he present it, he rewrote it, incorporated the ideas of the original resolution, but clothing them in more moderate language. This statement is made on tho authority of Mr. Brooks himself. If our contemporary can gather any comfort from this explanation it is perfectly welcome to do it." This article calls for a reply from me in justice to the Herald staff. I say un qualifiedly, that the resolutions did not emanate from the Herald, or from an}' person connected therewith, acting either as reporter or solicitor or otherwise. The resolutions were formulated by meat the time of the last Democratic Convention, when delegates were elected to the State Convention, which was held soon after in this city, and were discussed by friends of Col. Lynch, and we then came to the conclusion that the resolutions should be offered later in the campaign, after the nominations for Congress had been made. The resolutions which I introduced in the late Democratic County Convention, were written and formulated by me and were drawn in accord ance with the views I enter tained, aud which the Democratic County Convention entertained, and were offered by me without the knowledge of Col. Lynch. In fact I was the first man to inform Col. Lynch of the adoption of the resolutions, and congratulated him upon its passage two hours after the Convention had adjourned. Yours etc., J. Marion Brooks. Los Angeles, August 28, 1888. KILLED BY LIGHTNING. Yesterday morulas;'* storm Strikes a Barn, The residents of the city were roused from their Blumbers yesterday morning by the occurrence of a thunderstorm. These come so seldom in this country that the people give them more attention than is the case in Eastern cities, where they are common. Nearly everyone was wakened yesterday morning by the heavy peals of thunder, and many watched the lightning from their windows. Only one case where tbe lightning struck has been reported. This was the barn belonging to Mr. A. B. Nash, who resides at the corner of Oak and Wash ington Btreets. When Mr. Nash rose yesterday morning he went to his barn and found that a side bad been torn out, and on opening the door found that a valuable horse had been killed, as well as several chickens that were roosting near by. A FIRM MARKET. An Expert's Views Ipen Our Con dition—the Stone Age In Building;. [From the Sau Francisco Chronicle.] An opportunity was offered yesterday to meet Wendell Easton of Easton, Eld ridge & Co., who has just returned from an extended tour throughout Southern and Lower California. Mr. Easton said that as a result of his observation he was more than pleased with tlie condition of affairs in Southern California. Los Angeles city matters are certainly holding very strong, and inside city prop erty values are rating full anil strong at the same prices that prevailed last year. In some few transactions that have "been made a moderate advance has been made on previous quotations. The local banks are well provided with money. The Farmers and Merchants' Bank have on hand about 70 per cent of the deposits and are carrying nearly $3, --000,000 in cash. Other "banks are not quite so full, but are in a very strong con dition. The German Savings and Loan Society of this city have made very im portant loans on property in Los An geles on the basis of 30 per cent of their valuation, and they have succeeded in securing very nearly $1,000,000 in first class loans. The Savings and Loan Socie ty of this city have also made some im portant loans, the last and most impor tant one being a loan to the Abstract and Title Company of $20,000 on their new building, and there is a loan now pend ing from the tame institution on the property of the Board of Trade of about $30,000. What Mi. Easton is pleased to term the "stone age" in California has re ceived quite an impetus in Los Angeles by the construction of many new build ings with stone from different quarries in California and Arizona and New Mexico. The new City Hall is being constructed of granite and brick. The new opera house is being constructed of beautiful chocolate-colored sand-stone. J. B. Lank ershim is building a fine block of pressed brick with stone trimmings, and many millions of dollars are now being laid out in the construction of buildings aud the completion of contracts which were made last spring. Money matters generally in Los Angeles are easing up consider ably, although money is a commodity still sought after. Settlements are still in progress, although by different adjust ments that have taken place, a compara tively moderate amount of money has been necessary to bring about settle ments. In San Diego affairs are somewhat dif ferent, although inside values are hold ing very firmly, but there is a more marked inclination toward acreage prop erty back of San Diego, and commonly called the back country. The construc tion of the San Diego flume, which is now practically a settled fact, being completed across the important valleys to the mesa land back of the city, has solved the question of irrigation in these fertile val leys, which require water. The survey ing and subdividing of several large ranches are now in progress, and theee subdivisions are being offered at moder ate prices and on long credit, running over a period of from five to ten years, at a moderate rate of interest, and the offer ing is met with favor by land-seekers, who are, to an extent, passing by town lot speculations as in the past season. What the Mills Hill Means. Mr. Mills' masterly summing up of the case for tax ieduction through tariff reform, accompanied by a copy of the bill itself, would make one of the most effective documents that the Democrats could circulate. Mr. Mills showed first the "condition" that called for tax reduction; a Treasury surplus of $130,000,000, now being aug mented at the rate of $9,000,000 per month. The Democratic policy is to stop this surplus. The Republican policy is to spend it. The Mills bill reduces the revenue from universal necessities or comforts of the people, by an abatement of taxes, $50,000,000. It cuts off $20,000,000 more by putting upon the free list other neces sary articles. It reduces tbe average duty from $47.10 on every $100 of im ports to $42.49. And this is called "free trade!" . It is an average duty 23 per cent, higher than that of the Morrill war tariff of 1862. It is almost identical with that of the prolonged war tariff in 1802, which the Republicans proposed to re duce 20 per cent. If the promise of the Republican Tariff Commission and the Republican Congress in 1882 had been fulfilled tbe average duty would have been reduced to 34.10 per cent. The Mills Bill leaves it at 42.49. And yet that was "revenue reform," while this is "free trade!" The truth is that the bill does not go far enough in the direction of a low rev enue or a freer trade. It is simply the liest that could be passed. If it stiould become a law and work well the people would, no doubt, extend it. If it worked ill they would go back. The whole mat ter is in their hands. But this campaign is to be too long and too earnestly con tested to admit of the deception of in telligent voters by lying as to what the Mills Bill is —[New York World. £. 3S"Tiie Illustrated Herald is now on hand at this ollice and for sale at the extremely low price of 15 cents each, or eight copies forsl.

If you want to keep up tho boom send a copy of this splendidly embellished publication to your friends in the East. Speeches und Documents. The political campaign, which hat now fairly begun, will appeal largely to the in telligence of voters through printed documents. The HEBALD Booh and Job Department is prepared, with new type anil presses, to print speeches and campaign documents by the thousand or million, in good style, at reasonable prices.

To the People of Califobnia: The undersigned, having been appointed an a "Citizens' Committee on Chinese Immigra tion," it becomes necessary to collect funds to meet the expenses of a vigorous campaign Bgainst the further landing upon our shores of Chinese who are not plainly authorized to do so under the trea'y and the laws of the United States. To make the work which the Commit tee have in hand effective, a large amount of money will be required, for the campaign is doubtless destiued to be a long and laborious one, involving oefore Congress, and litigation through the United States Courts up to final decision upon the real points at ts sue, by the Supreme Court of the United States. I. the people of California are in earnest in their opposition to Chinese immigration, and if they desire that no effort shall hi spared to prevent their further illegal landing, tney will not hesitate lo contribute liberally to meet this expense. The Citizens' Committee will give their time freely and energetically to the work which they have in hand, but tkey oelleve that they should hare tbe co-operation of their fellow-citizens throughout the State, to the extent of furnish ing the necessary fuuds to make this work ef fective. They therefore respectfully, but earnestly, ask the people of California to contribute as liberally as their individual resources will per mit to the fund necessary to be raised for tho purpose herein indicate.!, 'they pledge them selves to use their best judgment in its econom ical disbursement, and to make every dollar earn its largeßt possible value iv aiding to put an end to this momentous evil. The publishers oi the Hebald are authorized to receive any moneys contributed for the fore goiDg purposes, and the uudersiitued, the Citi zens' Committee, pledge themselves that the committee will give such au account of their stewardship when their labors are ended as shall satisly the people of California that they have done all that men can do toward the suc cessful accomplishment of the important work which has been entrusted to them.
