AN ALL-YEAR CLIMATE.
That otLu Angeles Even Better in Mummer Than Winter. All the hotels ia the city are full of regular or transient visitors. The high class boarding houses are doing well. The Raymond, at Pasadena, is full to overflowing. At the Coronado there are 800 guests. For this lustlery, Simon Maier, the butcher, h shipping from this city meat to the value of $1,000 a week. The small hotels in the country are all fall where there are accommodations, comfortable and well kept. Why is this so? It is simply owing to the fact that about a month ago the unusually mild winter at the F.ast broke and the prevailing fine weather gave place to one of the most severe storms experienced in years. This drove the people from their homes in search of fine weather where they can exist in comfort and not be in hourly danger of losing their lives from uch severe cold. Another circumstance which drove them all here at this time is that they had no other refuge at this season. Had the storm come in December a great many of these climate-seekers might have gone to Flor ida and gained relief for the time being. But in February no sane and intelligent person goes to that peninsula. By the end of tbat month or the beginning of March, the atmosphere there becomes heavy, muggy and insufferably close and warm. The invalid must get away or succumb, aud the well man finds it better to brave the rigors of his northern spring weather than to endure the close, heavy and hot atmosphere of the Florida coast. These circumstances have sent a great host of health hunters and climate-seekers to California during the past few weeks. Yesterday these fads were fully dis cussed by Mr. Johnson, of the West minster Hotel, and Mr. A. H. Denker. Conversation turned ou the Main and Tenth-street hotel, and, as usual, at the conclusion was reached without much argument that what Los Angeles now needed,above all things, is a caravansary of the most ample commodioußness, of the most superb appointments, and of the most luxurious fittings. With such a hotel in Los Angeles there would be 1,000 guests here all the time. Here are nearly all the other attractions. Loj Angeles has as fine stores as there are in America, and the materfamilias here with her family can find as rich supplies in as large variety and at as reason able prices as she can in New York, or Chicago. Here are two first class theaters at which all the very best attractions in the country appear. There is the seashore at accessible distance to be reached at several points by many trains a day. There are drives and walks and all means of amusement, and health-securing. In discussing the matter later on with a Herald reporter the conclusion, which is obvious, was reached, that a fine hotel here would be quite as fully prosperous in summer as in winter. The general opinion at the East is that Los Angeles may be attractive indeed in the winter on account of its mild climate and not excessive rainfall, but that in summer it is rather sultry, and enervating. As Mr. Denker very emphatically asserted the opposite is the fact. If there is any advantage of one season over another here it is certainly in favor of the summer over the winter. For, if in the winter the temperature varies at from the freezing point of water as an extreme now and then touched in the early morning hours in December or January, while the general winter range lies at 45 degrees as the lowest in the morning before sunrise to 60 or 65 de grees as the midday temperature; so in summer, while the upper nineties may be reached for an hour or so in the forenoon of an exceptionally hot day, yet the nsual summer range is between 70 and 80 degrees in what is here regarded as really warm weather. It is also to be remembered the summer nights here are deliriously cool, the mercury ranging usually during bed hours at from 55 to 65 degrees. Thus the mild winters here draw from the East when ihe mercury is frozen in the bulb, and in summer the same very moderate temperature would draw away from the excessive heat of the Gulf and Lake States if only the facts were as well understood in regard to the summers of this section as they are to the winter. In discussing the matter, Mr. Denker and Mr. Johnson fully agreed that a great effort ought to be made to spread abroad all over the East and South a complete setting forth of the attractions of this section as to summer as well as winter resort. These are interesting subjects. The prosperity of the section largely depends on the building of the hotel and on tbe dissemination of knowledge regarding the climate tbat makes Los Angales so desirable a residence or resort. But as the average citizen reads these consider ations set forth in words he will prob ably reflect, as the reporter does who has to write them for the thousandth time, these be brave words and true, but there are no words so sweet or unctuous that they will butter any fellow's pars nips. It is well to discuss the hotel, and to descant on the climate, but words will never build the hotel, nor will any man's lungs serve to project these words across the backbone of the continent where there is so large and so aching a void for the knowledge they convey. It takes money to build the hotel, and printers' ink is not distributed gratis as a usual rule. THE FIRST OF MARCH. Peach Trees In Bloom and I lie mer cury at 70 tleg-reea. A Hkbald reporter was passing along Spring street yesterday, and at tbe door of tbe Nadeau he encountered George Rice, of the Alhambra. Rice has been a resident of the semi-tropics too long to be termed a tenderfoot, and he has had his mind occupied for years with oranae growiog, climate, resources and develop ments. The reporter approached him and asked how things looked to him. He replied in substance: Ido not see how they could appear otherwise than bright to any one. Do you begin even to realize that to-day is the first of March, that as you stand here in glowing sunshine, in an atmosphere whose temperature is 70 degrees,l tie whole East is still wrapped in a shroud of snow, fettered in ice, chilled with rough winds and generally suffering frcia the most severe of wintry weather ? Did you real ize that the mercury last night did not sink below 50 degrees here, while all beyond the Rockies it ranged at irom zero to perhaps 25 degrees below that point? Now that tells you the whole story. So King as this climate is ours, and so long as that is theirs, population from the East must flow in here in a wide and deep flood. The East has a full month of the most trying and disagree able weather to look forward to, and then another month of show ery, slushy, chilly days with SDmo modicum of sunshine between the showers to be sure, but with more clouds than sun. While there is not a cloud in THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD. SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 2, 1889. our skieß, and while in the past two months there have been but a very few cloudy days, they must look wearily ahead for two months for the clouds tv roll by. With these advantages in our favor, the growth and development if this section is inevitable. I am hardly prepared to say how soon the present quiet in business will give place to an other rußh ahead, bnt I am pereuaded that it will not be a long time that we will have to wait. The peach treeß and other fruit trees are all bursting out in bloom all over the section, while at the East a leaf will not burst forth for the next two months. THE NADEAU CASE. A Beceiver Appointed to Take Charge of the Hotel Property. The two suits against Mrs. Laura M. Nadeau et al., mentioned in yesterday's Hkbald, are quite interesting. The first is that of H. O. Houghton to recover $23, --750 due for attorneys' fees. The com plaint alleges that on the 18th of Janu ary, 1887, Messrs. Houghton, Silent and Campbell were retained by Mrs. Laura M. Nadeau, Cora E. Bowell and Gertie A. White to to defend all suits brought against them to set aside the will of Remi Nadeau, who died on January 15, 1887. The fee was to be $25,000. and of this amount only $1,250 has been paid, leaving a balance of $23,750 due. Plaintiff alleges that he did all the work he agreed to do, and asks judgment against the defendents for the amount due. An attachment was levied on tlie Nadeau hotel property to cover the amount. The second case was that of Jasper Harrell against Mrs. Laura M. Nadeau individually, 8. B. Caswell, executor, and Mrs. Laura M. Nadeau, execntrix of the will and testament of Hemi Nadeau, deceased, Joseph -F. Nadeau, Mary R. Bell, J. H. Bell, Julia F. Tillon, G. A. Nadeau, Cora E. Powell, M. A. Powell, Gertie A. White, Wm. White, Francis M. Eggleston, Simon Aaron, M. Siege!, H. E. Moore, H.W. Chase, Chas. Eaton, E. Dunham and W. J. Sullivan, to re cover $225,000 on a promissory note. The plaintiff alleges that on the 11th of November, 1886, Remi Nadeau delivered to bim, for value received, a promissory note for $225,000 at 9 per cent, per year, payable on November 11, 1888, and, to secure the same, executed a mortgage on the hotel property on the corner of First and Spring streets. Remi Nadeau died on January 15, 1887, and the note, plaintiff claims, has not been paid. He asks that a receiver be appointed, and that the hotel be sold to satisfy his claim. Judge Clark appointed I. N. Moore re ceiver, and placed the case on the calen dar. A Itlusked Ball. This evening the members of the Belgian Benevolent Society will give their first grand ball at the Turn Verein Hall, the receipts to be devoted to the charitable objects of the institution. It ia to be a masquerade, and those who will actively participate have been busy for some days past preparing their cos tumes, some of which, it is promised, will equal anything yet seen in the city on such an occasion. Every arrange ment has been made for the reception of onlookers, and a crowded house will doubtless be the result of the good management connected with the affrir. The overture will be played at 8 o'clock, and the grand march will commence ex actly thirty minutes later. An Improving Quarter of the City. The Cameron tract, along Figueroa and Pico street, is being rapidly built on. Mr. C. Ducommun has a very fine lot ou the corner of Grand avenue and Pico He has put a beauttful fence around it. and he has also built a fine stable. He is now preparing to put up a residence which will be the peer of the finest houses in the city. It will cost about $30,000. Mr. Henry Martz has recently built three nice houses in the vicinity. He erects these to sell to those who come here in search of homes. The houses cost $4,000 to $5,000 each. Mr. Behrenl has put up two fine houses on the tract lately.

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 p. rtion 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 the 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 sacred precincts of the home and fireside, rather than Indecently salacious in its tone. THE HERALD gets all the news from all quarters of the globs 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 enterprise. 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. For a Clean Faiily Paper Take (he Herald!
