THE GRAPE DISEASE.
It la Widespread, but will be Sup praised shortly. Editoks Herald : The subjoined let ter from Mr. Robert McPheraon, of this county, speaks for itself. It is offered for publication as a justification of Mr. Mcpherson's statement of the existence of the grape disease at Fresno, and also to give such information to those people as may enable them to protect their vineyards. I have an all-abiding faith that before the vines come out in leaf again we can name remedies which will protect all vines not affected, and, possi bly, save those which are not too far gone. Respectfully yours, J. Dk Barth Siiobb. P. S. —Last week's examination of canes sent to us from Santa Ctara county established tbe fact that they unfortu nately have the same disease there, a fact which has been duly communicated to the Commission. J. D. B. S. McPherson, January 31st, 1888. Mr. J. De Barth Shorb, San Gabriel, Cal.: Dear Sra—l have your favor of the 21st, and note that you desire me to state what I know of the existence of the mysterious vine trouble in Fresno. I will say, in plain terms, I spent but one day among the vineyards at Fresno, but made as much of the time as I could. I drove to a number of vineyards and brought away specimens that showed the disease, as we "have it very plainly. I not only found the leaf signs, but I also found canes that had dropped, the leaves and the cane still holding green, as in the early part of the season. This latter condition is very common in vineyards where the disease is well advanced. I am not alone in my opinion that the dis ease is in Fresno, for a party from Orange quite early in the sea son, passing that country, made tbe statement that it existed at Fresno. Also Mr. Wm. Van Doren, a vineyardist in this valley, who was for a number of years our foreman, while foreman for Mr. Chas. Leslie at Fresno, last fall sent affected leaves home to his family, and these leaves were examined by a number in our valley, aud by all the leaves were considered affected by the same disease as our own vines. I have it from others also. I met several parties while I was in San Francisco and San Jose, and when I described the disease they were able to recognize the disease as existing in their midst, and that the result was more discernible last year than the year previous. Now, while our vineyards are very seriously affected, and without a remedy will soon be worthless, lam not going to say that the disease will surely cause the same destruction at Fresno as here. The climate may be in their favor there. This is only con jecture. I hope tbey may not be troubled more than tbey now are. lam very sorry to see that the people there feel so tender on this subject. I only wish that some one had shown me what this disease was about two years ago. Hoping that you and our friend Professor Dowlingmay find the remedy for all your trouble. lam yours very truly, Robert McPherson. THE POLICE COMMISSION. Several ITutsnportaut matters Con sidered *e»terday. The Police Commissioners met yester day afternoon, Mayor Brvson in the chair and Councilman Kuhrts and Chief Cooney present. Or. Choate appeared and stated that Officer Dorsey had contracted a sickn ess in the pursuit of his duty, and he had recommended that his salary be allowed, as provided by ordinance.

Fifteen men were put to work Tuesday morning on what is known as Wilson's trail, that is the road leading to the sum mit of Wilson's Peak, where the big telescope and observatory is to be located. It is given out that tbe 13-inch lens telescope which was sent out to the Wilsons in charge of Professor Pickering, so that that gentlemen could witness the eclipse of the sun, is to be brought to Wilson's Peak inside of three weeks. It will only be there about six or seven months, however, as it is then to go to South America with an astronomical expedition in charge of Professor Picker ing. The telescope which weight) two tons is now being boxed for shipment to thin city, and will arrive in a few days, and meantime Mr. N. C. Carter and Judge Eaton, who have been appointed a com mittee to arrange for its handling in thit> district, will have everything ready for its reception. The trail by which the observatory will be reached commences at Carterhia, at the end of Baldwin ave avenue, and will be iv good condition in a few days. THE M'LMTD CASE. The Defense Introduces Its Testi mony. The case of Mrs. McLaud against tbe Councilmen and Dr. Hagan is slill on trial before Judge Wade and a jury. Judge Wade, at tbe morning session, dismissed the case as to Mayor Work man and the Councilmen, and tbe de fendants remaining were Dr. Hagan and his assistants. These defendants intro duced testimony to show that every pre caution had been taken to remove the deceased Ida Searles from ber home in safety to the pest house, and that every thing was done that was possible after she got there to make her comfortable. Testimony was also introduced to show that she would have died even if she had staid at home; that she lived in a tene ment bouse in which there were other families, and that it was for the public safety that she was removed. Tbe case will probably be completed to-day. OUT OP WOKK. Tne Free Labor Agency Opened Yesterday. Tho free labor and employment office conducted by Mr. B.

THE HERALD has from its inception watched with a single eye the budding industries of this portion of the State. For each good en terprise this journal has at all times had a word of cheerful encourage ment. In spite of the skeptical, it has survived to see all of its earlier predictions fullfilled to the letter. THE HERALD to-day takes the lead in all respects among tha papers of Southern California. Its first care still is the material, intel lectual and social interests of its section. It aims to be truthful rather than over-zealous in its publication of news; to be conservative rather than over-sensational, in its policy; to be clean and decent, respecting the eacred precincts of the home and fireside, rather than indecently salacious in its tone. THE HERALD gets all the news from all quarters of the globe with promptness accuracy and dispatch. Its local staff is energetic and well-trained to miss nothing of real importance to its readers. It is always alive to all public enterprises. THE HERALD still takes pride in aiding any legitimate material, intellectual or social movement which will benefit the people.
