What It Will Cost to Bttn the New
During the session of the Legislature,
which has just come to an end, the bill
passed to establish anew county to
be called Orange, and carved out of the
southeast part of Los Angeles county,
classified this new county as of the fif
teenth class. This supposed the new
county to have a population of at least
12,801, but not 13,000 people. There are
in all forty-eight classes of counties in the
County Government Act.
On the fourth day of next June
an election is to be held in
■ the new county for tbe purpose
of deciding whether or not it is the will
of the people to set up this new county.
It will require a two-thirds vote of all the
electors in Orange county to set up this
connty. The votes of tbe citizens therein
will turn largely on the question of taxa
tion. It is feared by many that the new
county will cost tax-payers much more
than their present quota to support the
county of Los Angeles. Tho debts i.nd
assets of the old county are to be assessed
by commissioners to determine what is
the equity of the old and new counties
in the came. The funded debt of Los
Angeles is about $600,000. In their
preeent condition and as the market for
realty is, no conservative estimate will
put the property of the county at a
higher figure than its debts. The new
county will take nothing from us to help
her in setting up housekeeping. She is
more likely to be brought in in our debt
to a small extent.
A number of people are writing to
the Herald to ask what it will cost to
run the new county, with a view of learn
ing what their taxes will be. The as
sessed value of the territory embraced in
Orange county, according to the valua
tion of last year, is about $8,000,000.
The State ouota on that was ne'aly $50,
--000. By the terms of the county govern
ment act, the salaries of the officers
of a county of the fifteenth class
we fixed as follows:
Clerk $1,500, Sheriff $3,500, Recorder
$50D, Auditor $600, Treasurer, $1,500,
Tax Collector, $600, Assessor $2,500,
District Attorney $1,500, Superintendent
of Schools $800, Supervisors $500 each,
or $2,500 for the five. The total above is
$67,000. There will be at least twenty
townships in the new county, each with
a justice of the Peace and two Consta
bles. Here are sixty officials who, if they
let the county off for $1,000 cacti, they
will do well. ' That is $60,000, or nearly
as much as tbe State tax and the salaries
of all the other officers of the county.
We now have an expense of $127,000.
There are the indigent still to provide
for, an expense not easily estimated, but
it is pretty certain that the new county
will pay out more on this account than
its pro rata of the old county disburse
ments. There is a coroner and his fees,
a surveyor and his fees, deputies of
various sorts and their fees. It
is not at all probable that
$150,000 would foot the bills to this
point. Right here there is about $2 tax
on the $100 of valuation, at the figures of
last year. Roads and schools are still
to provide for. The former cost twenty
cents on the $100 of valuation last year,
and tbe latter cost twelve cents on the
$100, while for the County Hospital there
was levied six cents on the $100. The
total thus figured out would come to
nearly $2.40 on the $100 for the new
county, on last year's valuation.
There is now the cost of setting the
new county up. There is a county poor
house, a courthouse, a jail and other
public offices to provide. All the ar
chives of the old county, so far as they
refer to the new one, will have to be
copied and bound in proper form. The
only way to do this is by the issuing of
bonds. Is there any expert who
will say this can be done for
less than $250,000? These bonds can
not be floated at less than six
per cent, interest. Here is a sum of at
least $15,000 a year to pay. This will
add 20 cents on the $100 for interest
account. And now the rate is raised to
$2.60 on the $100. No account has
been made above for the Superior Judge,
who is to get $3,000 a year salary, of
which the State pays half and the county
the other half. It is well known that no
estimate is possible which will cover all
the expenses of a matter of this sort.
If anyone thinks the county can be run
and kept from going deeper in debt each
year on a levy of $3 tax on the $100 of
valuation, putting the property on the
connty at $8,000,000, which is re
ported to be as nearly as pos
sible the valuation of last
year, this is an income from
direct taxation for State, county and
road purposes equal to $240,000, he will
not be able to balance his sheets on tbe
right side at the end of the year. It is
the impression in some parts of tbe new
county that the rate will be nearer four
dollars than three.
The Fire Commlailon.
The Board of Fire Commissioners met
yeßterday morning in the Mayor's of
On motion of Mr. Marsh the clerk
was instructed to inform the Council that
the Board did not approve of a reduction
in tbe salaries of the Fire Department,
and that the Council be asked to restore
the old rates, Mr. Lovell alone voted
against this motion. The Chief notified
the Board that three new horses were
needed, and the clerk was notified to ask
the Council to allow the Commission to
purchase such horses as are necessary.
A number of applications for positions in
the department were then received, and
on motion were filed. On motion of Mr.
Kuhrts it was resolved to aßk the Coun
cil to make provision for an electrician
for the fire alarm, as the system cannot
be made effective without. On motion,
W. Stoermer was placed in the position
lately occupied by H. Wiatt, and Wiatt
was dismissed. The Board then ad
A Quick Trip.
Advices received at the Southern Pa
cific office yesterday announced the ar
rival in New York on the 25th instant of
a special carload of oranges sent out
from Riverside on tbe 13th instant. This
is a remarkably quick trip and will be
pointed to with pride by the roads ac
complishing it —the Southern Pacific,
Union Pacific and the Erie Dispatch. It
is said that the carload contained the
finest oranges ever sent in bulk out of
California. Each one was selected and
carefully cleaned and wrapped as the
New York merchant was anxious to ob
tain a specimen carload of the best fruit
that this section could produce.

On the Influence of Cold
Production of Diseases of tne Lonp
Different Plans of Treatment,

Throat and Chest, including the Eye, Ear and
The state of the atmosphere impresses itself
directly on the mucous lining of the nasal pas
sages, throat windpipe, bronchial tubes and
air-cells of the lungs. Sudden changes in the
temperature of the air are immediately felt over
the whole of this extended surface. Coolness
and humidity render the air irritating to the
mucous membrane, irritation ends in conges
tion, and congestion is the first stage of inflam
mation—the parent of all those chronic catarrh
al affections of the nose, throat and bronchial
tubes, which ultimately end in consumption.
Nearly eighty per cent, of the cases of con
sumption begin by congestion of the mucous
membrane of the nasal passages, throat and
bronchial tubes produced by colds. To that
extent, therefore, consumption springs directly
from the damp and changeable weather. It is
inflammatory and pnrely local in its early stage
—quite as much so as inflammation of the eyes
or quinsy of tbe throat, and must be treated in
the Bame direct manner.
It is a rule of medical practice, established by
ages of experience, that every disease which is
local—that is to say, has its seat in any one
organ or part of the body —requires for its cnre
the direct application of the remedies to such
organ or part When this can be done, the
disease is generally curable, and when It can
not be done it is, if serious, generally fatal. The
same mucous membrane Is spread over the
globe of the eye, lines the tear passage and in
ternal surlace ol tbe nose, covers the throat,
passes down tbe windpipe, and becomes the
lining of the delicate and innnmerable air cells
of the lungs. When cold produces Inflamma
tion of the eye in one person and acute catarrh
of the head in another, the cause, the disease
and the membranes affected are alike in every
respect. When cold produces a sore throat in
one person and conge»tion of the lungs in
another, there is no difference in the diseased
action of the two cases, or in the principles of
treatment required for their cure. It is mu
cous membrane that is involved in both cases.
But many treat these similar diseases of same
membrane widely different, and, as a conse
quence, cure one aud fail to cure the other.
For the eye they apply eyewashes and oint
ments directly to the Inflamed parts and are
generally successful. In the nose is applied
nothing to the diseased parts, and catarrh be
comes Bested and 1b thought to be incurable.
For an inflamed throat they prescribe gargles
and applications to tbe throat, and generally
cure. For the same disease a little lower down
—in the windpipe and bronchial tubes—they
make no direct application, bnt dose the pa
tient's stomach, aud. as a consequence often
fail to cure Would it not be foolish to pretend
to cure an inflamed eye or a sore throat by dos
ing the stomach? Well, it 1b just as great a
mistake to treat catarrh and diseases of the air
passages of the lungs by dosing tbe stomach
The fatality of long diseases Is not due, as
many people suppose, to the malignity of their
nature or the importance of thoir breathing
organs. It is the inevitable result of pross neg
lect of the means of cure within the reach of
all. Properly treated by direct medication,
lung diseases are as curable as other maladies.
if any satisfactory result were attained by
constitution treatment alone in lung cases—if
they cured considerable proportion of such
cases—it might reasonably be doubted whether
the direct treatmentof inhalation could accom
plish better results. Bnt the fact is, they do but
very little good. Even in hospitals, where the
diet, exercise and general habits, as well as
their medical treatment, are entirely under tbe
control of physicians, very few well defined
diseases of the lungs can be shown to have been
cured by the stomach treatment oat of every
thousand cases so treated. It has been so uni
formly unsuccessful that most people have
come to regard consumption as equivalent to
the hand of death! In giving it up, therefore,
those having lung diseases abandon nothing,
save the certainty of an earthly grave for a hope
of life and health.
Now, look at the results sttained by the direct
treatment of the lungs by inhalation. In all
ordinary cases of catarrh, bronchitis and
asthma, improvement immediately takes plaoe,
and they go on to complete cure. In consump
tion the disease is moro obstinate, but these
cases ultimately get well. Even in desperate
> cases benefits always result from inhalationa,
and we can point to hundreds of such cases
whtch were given over to die and pronounced
hopeless, aud yet recovered and are now living.
These facts are easily certified to by thousands
of living witnesses st the present day.
