THE GRAPE DISEASE.
It la Widespread, but will be Sup
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
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,
THE POLICE COMMISSION.
Several ITutsnportaut matters Con
The Police Commissioners met yester
day afternoon, Mayor Brvson in the
chair and Councilman Kuhrts and Chief
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. He was di
reeled to have the matter taken before
the Council first.
The applications of P. Welch and M.
Faure for changes of saloon licenses were
referred to the Chief for investigation.
Licenses were granted to G. Kurtzer
and C. Mehl.
Dr. Bryant's resolution, introduced in
the Council and referred to the Police
Commission, in reference to the suppres
sion of gambling, came up. Mr. Kuhrts
said that the games were being raided
properly by the Chief, and that over 90
arrests had been made for gambling dur
Officer Bosqui appeared and asked to
be appointed as a special, but was in
formed that there were no vacancies.
The Board then adjourned.
A Telescope to be Placed Tbere
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
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.

<jjj»HE LOS ANGELES HERALD IS BY ALL ACKNOWLEDGED
have been the prime factor in the discovery and making known oi the
resources of this section. To its sagacious outgivings more than to any
other agency our marvelous development is attributed.
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. No other
journal in this section approaches it in those important respects.
