We are assured by the papers of North ern California that tbat part of the State is experiencing quite a steady influx of people from the East, who are rapidly settling up the country. The foothills in Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Butte, and the counties north of that are in good demand, and newcomers are buying homes at a rate that gives a very healthy impetus to land sales in that direc tion. Since the extension of the Sacramento Valley Railroad to Placer ▼ille, El Dorado, which for years was the most dormant county in the State, has been filling up with settlers, and now forms a very important piece of back country to the merchants of Sacra mento. Indeed, the reports from nearly ail the northern counties indicate that the boom,which started in Southern Cal ifornia, has been continued on a very steady scale in tbat part of the State. It is worth while to examine into the causes that have led to this activity in settlement at the north, whiht a reaction the other way has been experienced in the Southern counties. First and fore most, we find that the impression has been firmly fixed in the minds of new comers tbat land cannot be had in South ern California at reasonable prices, and tbat, on the contrary, the only cheap lands available are to be found in the noithern counties. So completely has this idea teen impressed on the minds of immigrants that the stream that came this way a few years ago now heads directly for the upper counties. They have become thoroughly imbued with the fallacy that we have nothing but high-priced lands in this section; whilst, on the otber hand, they imagine that the man who wants to get a cheap, heme mnet go to tbe northern counties It is trne (bat some of our lands are held high, and justly so. But that we have lands that can be bought at moder ate prices is also true. We doubt whether lands equally as eligibly situated in the north can be bought at lees figures there than here. The productive character of onr lands is certainly far superior to that of tbe northern lands tbat are sold to settlers. Whilst much of tbe land in the noithern part of the State is only good for raising grain, every acre of our tillable soil is adapted to a wide and valuable range of fruit production. What our landowners have to do is to di abuse the general mind of the idea that there are no cheap lands in this sec tion. The adjustment of values Eince the settlement of the inflation prices that ob tained here two years ago, has made this section by far the most attractive locality to settle in in the State. But this fact must be made known. As long as the impression prevails abroad that this is no place to look for cheap lands, there will be a lack of inquirers. We are now ecglged in preparing mat ter for our regular annual Illustrated Herald. This publication will soon be issued, and an immense edition will be printed. It will be up to the ueual mark of excellence in every respect that has heretofore characterized this very popular issue. It will be sent broadcast over the United Btates, and will reach the very class of people from whom tbe new settlers in thia State are drawn. There could be no more effective vehie'e in which our land owners could convey to people abn a 1 a pu'isfactory knowledge of the fact that their lands can be had at jieatonable prices. The dissemination of this information through the Illustrated Herald will do much to dhpsl the illu sion tbat cheap lands can be had only in Northern California. People will not come here to buy cheap lands unless they are advited that we bave Bnch for sale. As the summer approaches, the rush to the seaside at Santt Monica is becom ing very marked, especially on Sundays. Both the Southern Pacific and the Lou Angelea & Pacific carried great crowds down there yesterday. By the first of June the new railway will be completed to Redondo Beach, and aa it is the inten tion to run hourly trains to that charm ing resort, our people will have their choice of watering places. The roadbed is being poshed forward rapidly, fifty passenger cara have been contracted for, tbe hotel is being built in sections in the up country, and the work)of putting it up when it arrives cm be dispatched very uiickly. The air at the .sea shore, though ruild, ia highly stimulating, while the temperature for bathing is already de licious. ._.

I THB LOS ANGELES DAILT HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 22, 1889. The instructions given by Secretary lame to the Samoan Commissioners are published in substance in the New York World of Monday last. They are by no means of the bloodthirsty tenor one would expect from the Plumed Knight after all the elaborate Republi can denunciation of Secretary Bayard's pusillanimity. In fact, in the main, the identical attitude taken up by Mr. Cleve land's Secretary of State, and whose de cisive terms did not suit Bismarck lie fore the visitation of Providence in the harbor of Apia, form the basis of the in structions of the Commissioners, if the World is correctly informed. The vapor ings of newspapers and of statesmen in tbe private station are all very well, but they very rarely form the basi9 tor of ficial action. The dispatches of yesterday make it certain that all that the United States shall claim under Mr. Blame's instructions will be readily conceded by Germany. The fact is that, in many respects, Mr. Bayard's attitude in the Samoan embroglio was very ill under stood. He not only contended for all that the United States had a tight to ask in tbe premises, but for more. In his plan of adjustment, as submitted to Bis marck by tho Government of the United States, he proposed that the Samoans should elect a King and Vice-King, and that these potentates should be guided, or, in ether words, ruled by a Council composed of five native Chiefs and a Min istry of three persons nominated respec tively by the United States, Great Bri tain and Germany. There was also to be a Legislature of two houses, the up per house to be known as tbe|Taimuaa, and the lower house as the Faipule. The tipper house was to consitt of the King, Vice-King, the three Ministers represent ing the three Treaty Powers and the Chiefs elected for life by the people. The lower house, it is to be presumed, was to consist' of the breech-clouted rag, tag and bobtail. Mr. Bayard had as much right to outline snch a form of government in Samoa as the Samoans had to reconstruct the Court of the Queen's Bench in England; but the scheme had at least the merit of providing for a pre ponderance of Samoan influence in the government of their own island and the conduct of their own affairs. In all the negotiations respecting Samoa the United States is the only one of the three Treaty Powers that seems inclined to admit that these poor people have any right to their own territory, and even the United States hedges round the ad mission with conditions. Providence, thus far, has proved the moet reliable friend these valiant islanders have found in their extremity. A spectacle will be witnessed to-day all along the boundary line of Oklahoma, such as has never had a parallel in the history of the world. The migration of settlers to Kansas and Nebraska in ante war times, was a slow and gradual pro cess compared with the irruption which will take place to-day. The lowest esti mate we have seen of the number of people who will cross the border of Oklahoma at noon to-day is one hundred thousand. When the sig nal is given to move, the vaßt caravan of prairie schooners and other vehicles will cross over into the new Territory and deploy in all directions. Then the scramble will commence. Thoße who have a knowledge of the topography of the country, and who know where the choicest landa are lo coated, will have a decided advantage 'over the great mass who will go in there green. Unless the Territory has been surveyed, and the quarter sections are defined by stakes, there will be great confusion, and numbers will take up the lane claims at the same time. The liti gation that will ariee out of this will in evitably be great. If the day pass off without eerious collisions, it will be re ma'kable. The handful of troops there will te unable to preserve order, unleßß the fettlers themselves are disposed to aid them. News from the boomers will be looked for anxiously. We give elsewhere an Eagle-Rocker's story of the rights claimed by the denizens of the eyrie of the majestic monarch of the clouds, in the forcibly-removed dummy-road. It is different from the versions heretofore given, and from the temper of the people at Eagle Rock, as reflected by this writer, the end of the affair is not yet. The camp-fires along the Oklahoma strip last night must have heen a grand sight. Tne J.«>« Angeles '• ln uln . For tbe tirst time in the recollection of the writar this theatre was crowded last night in every part. "Standing room only" had to be dv played at an early hour in the evening, and even the proscenium boxes were filled to overflowing. Keilly & Wood's Big Show is by long odda the best thing of the kind that ever played to a Los Angeles, and, indeed, we may say, a Pacific Coast audience. All of the specialties are good, and some of them superlatively so. Tbe Healeys are simply nonpareil as Plantation Nigger song and dance artists. Lebans and Debruiront are capital in their line, and Napier and Marzello are consummate acrobatic clowns. Keilly and Sparks score a tremendous success as Irish comedians, and the audience could not have too much of them. The rehearsal episode, as rendered by Miss Jennie Melville and Mies Eva Stetson, was applauded to the echo, as it deserved to be. Their topi cal songs and dialectic business are really of a high grade, and took the house by storm. The comic conjurer, lmro Fox, acquits himself of an order of magic of which neither Heller nor Herr man need be ashamed, and he seasons it with a play of humor which evokes many a laugn. Miss Bessie Gilbert fully sustained her high reputation as an ac complished cornetist. The Vadis sisters are precisely what he flaming advertisement) proclaim them to be, veritable acrobatic wonders. Their varied entertainment on the "Tra pezone Rotaire" was positively sensa tional in its grace, agility and per fection. They do every thing that other tratezists do, and with matchless dash, daring and sinewy address, and do many things which are their own. Tne rotary trapeze employed is of solid silver, and it is the first device of the kind which has ever been used in Los Ange les. The twin sisters are adepts at every phase of acrobatic difficulties, but the dive of Miss Lizzie from the dome of the theater is something so daring and thrilling as to make the spectator hold his breath. First her delicate handker chief flutters down, and then the aerial and intrepid acrobat follows, landing almost as lightly on the network stretched over the parquette. The whole show is good. We have been liberal in adj actives because the performance deserved them. The Los Angeleß Theater will undoubtedly be crowded during the engagement. SPORTS AND SPORTSMEN. Events of the Past and Future That are Talked About. The result of the late Spring meeting, from a racing point of view, was a com plete success. The horses that ran in the different events were representatives of the best blood in California, and the number of outsiders in the betting who upset the talent, was a sure sign that jobbers and jobbery were conspicuous by their absence. Perhaps the best three-year-old that ran during the week was Dan Dennison's gelding G. W„ who carried off the Los Angeles derby, but, personally, judging from the easy manner in which he can tered home in front of his field for the mile and a quarter dash, I think that Albert Cooper's 3-year-old colt, L-mis p., will turn out to be the best of the outfit. I know G. W. beat him last week at Fresno, but full particulars of that race are not to hand, and, if looks go for any thing, Cooper's colt ought to tarn oat a clinker. The weather during the first four days of the week was wretched, but pool-sell ing was good throughout the meeting, and the club will quit about even on their venture. I understand that it is their intention to give a meeting next winter, at which running races will be the sole attraction, and, as these are the kind that specially interest the puolic, it will doubtless be a good move on the part of the Club. Interest in pugilism is on the increase in Southern California, aud as Le Blanche, the Marine, Joe Ellingsworth and Jack Dempsey will soon arrive in the city, things in tbe pugilistic line are likely to become particularly lively. The fight next Friday, at the California Athletic Club, between Jackson and Car diff is exciting much interest and but little betting, owing to the fact (hat everybody is anxious to bet his money on the dusky Australian. A good many predict that Cardiff will defeat the con queror of McAuliffe, and base their opin ions on the fact that Jackson has, so far, met no man who stood in the first class of pugilism. There is an old saying, "Always keep on backing a winning horse until he is defeated, and it applies equally to pugil isis. If a man ivins easily, it is bad policy to belittle his performance on the ground that his oppon ent was of no account. Jackson has won his victories without a scratch, and, in my opinion, it will take a good deal better man than Patsy Cardiff to stop his victorious career. , McAuliffe's acceptance of Jem Car ney's challenge, if I am to believe a morning contemporary, is perhaps the most extraordinary that ever appeared iv print. Who ever yet heard of two men fighting ten rounds, with bare fists, London prize-ring rules? It may be news to the sporting editor of that paper, bat under London prize-ring rules, bare nsts are a sine qua non, gloves or any protection to the hands being strictly for bidden. Under London prize ring rules, con tests are invariably to a finish, a limita tion to a certain number of rounds is therefore a decided innovation. In our dispatches will be found the de tails of the race between Henry Hence man, of Stockton, and Long, of San Francisco. The "slough" champion had easily the best of it from start to finish. I have always held that it is a great pity that Henceman has gained for himself an unenviable reputation for crookedness, for he can, in my opinion, row away from any man either on the Parramatta, tbe Alameda course or Toronto bay. Henry is "all there" when yon can count on him. When he is not—why, his backers get left. A.NGIJCE. WHAT CAN BE Obtained from the Orange Planta tion Besides Fruits. As consulting chemist, says George Cirouschoff de Lessing in the New York Tribune, I was asked recently what can be obtained from the oranga plantation besides fruits? The question, in our country, is one of great importance, and it brings before us the necessity of manu facturing on the orange plantations with the raw fruits. Till now nothing has been done only the gathering and selling of fruits. At present the prices are very low, for only last ween 100 oranges could be purchased for the small sum of 25 cents. During my sojourn in the south part of Italy and France I had ample opportunities to learn tbe different processes used in the orange plantations, and my answer was as follows: 1. Extracting, by pressure, orange peel oil (oil Portugal); price per ounce. 12. 2. Distilling Heroly oil; per ounce, $4. 3. Distilling fallen green fruit oil; per pound,s4. 4. Distilling leaves oil; per pound, $2. 5. Preparing wine; per gallon, 50 cents. 6. Preparing citric acid; per pound, 50 cents. 7. Preparing dry orange flowers; per pound, $4. 8. Preparing orange blossom pomade; per pound, $2.50. 9. Preparing orange flower water; per gallon $2.50. Owners of orange plantations spending $2,000 to $2,500 for necessary machinery and using 2,640,000 oranges, can obtain oil (Portugal oil) worth $2,000, but by Belling to tbe best advantage can obtain about $6,000. Utilizing flowers, fallen fruits, leaves, juice (sweet and sour), and preparing pomades he can double that amount, which necessitates additional expenses and machinery to $7,000. All products are good for perfumery, soaps and candy business. "I think that armchair is a beauty," said the old man, who waa in the parlor with hia daughter and her young man; "It looks almost large enough to hold two." "O, yes, sir," spoke up the young man, "it is plenty large enough." And then he relapsed into a state of innocu ous desuetude, while his blushes turned the ice water on the table into a bright cochineal red.—[ Lawrence American.

HOW THE WOKK IS ACCOMPLISHED Bad Results of the Existing Sys tem— The Need of a Better Arrangement. "There ara enough tramps and useless members of the society in existence al ready, here and in any other parts of the country. Yet, county of Los Ange les has for a long time beun pursuing a policy with regard to its statute-breaking classes which has the unfortunate result of manufacturing vagrants," said an offi cer of the government the other day. "If there were a contract existing by which the courts and jail were under ob ligation to furnish a certain number of professional tramps a year, the work could hardly be done more expeditiously or more successfully. While the popula tion of the district remains comparative ly sparse, the evil consequences cf the present system will not be felt to a very considerable degree. Ten or fif .een years from now when the farming dis tricts of Southern California are thickly settled, more obxoxious results will be gin to show themselves. The climate of Southern California makes it naturally a sort of a tropic par adise. When a professional once 6trike3 the country he has very little inducement to go back East. A land where one can sleep out-of-doors 300 days out of the year with as much comfort as under a roof; where fruit rota under the trees and few people keep degs, is quite good enough for the old bummers who have carried icicles on their whiskers through a whole season. In the eyes of the gen uine vagrant, work is more or less of a crime, bat it is especially so in a country where it appears to be ai unnecessary ai it is in Southern California. The same advantages of climate which bring the tourist reclining at his ease in a luxurious Pullman, bring also the übiquitous tramp curled up ou the brake beam. He is here already iv large num bers, and he is coming at the rate of sev eral thousand a year. The situation is one which seems likely to get woree in stead of better as time passes. The arrests for vagrancy in this city are usually at the rate of two cr three a day, varying somewhat with the weather. Ia the country districts the number is much larger. Daring the winter tbe county jail usually contains about 250 prisoners, of whom more than half are vagrants. In the summer the total number of iamates is much less, sometimes getting down nearly to 100, and perhaps not more than one-fourth of these belong to the class under discussion. Those who are arrested in the city, if sentenced to short terms, are put in the city chain-gang, and made to work ou the streetß. This diversion is not at all popular with them, and the result is that as soon as possible they get out to the rural districts again. Here they are picked up by the Oonstiblea and sent into the County Jail for times varying from five to thirty days. This is supposed to be punishment, but the trouble with the present arrange ment is that it is no punishment what ever. The professional tramps make no concealment of this fact, and often go out of their way to get arrested. The jail is a well-built structure, and is mod erately comfortable in all seasons of the year. The food is tolerably good, and possesses the merit of boing served regu larly. The tramp, moreover, is of a gregarious disposition, and enjoys the society of his own ilk. With nothing to do from one day's end to the other, they spend their time smoking, singing and play ing cards. The loss of liberty is only temporary, and does not disturb them very much. It is a well-established fact that a man who is once a professional vagrant will always remain one. Prison discipline can hardly be made to act as a reform atory agency, but it can at least refrain from encouraging the vice and bringing up others to follow in the same line of business. Not all of the inmates of the jail who are booked as vagrante aro of the professional order. They are often young men who happen to be out of work and are caught up by over-zealous officers. These aro gradually initiated into the pleasures of the tramp's existence, ami not infre quently leave the jail confirmed vagrants. A large number of outrages have been brought to light in the way of arrests for vagrancy, committed by the constables of the country districts, and have been published in the papers. Men have been captured while on their way to work with their tools iv their possession, and brought to the city that the con stables might draw mileage and fees. One case was discovered a short time ago of a foreigner who was at work on a job, and was asked if be would leave it and take a better one, where board would be included. The next thing he knew he was in the County Jail. A young clerk, who had come here from the East to visit his parents, and was on Ids way up from the depot, was captured and run in by a deputy constable and charged with vagrancy. The cases which come to li>ht and are published may rerve as an indication of a large number of others where the outrages are endured in silence. One caee which came to the notice of a Hkrald reporter last winter may he taken as a fine example of how vagrants are made in this county. A young man, a carpenter by trade, but, of necessity, from lack of other work, a ranch hand, was unable to find work and was wand ering about tbe county. He was arrested for vagrancy and sent to the County Jail for ten days. While he was in jail word came to him that he would be given work at building a barn, if he would go to a certain place. As soon as he got out he started off to tackle the job. On his way he passed through the town where he had been ar rested before, and he was discovered by tbe authorities. They knew him of old, they said, and would not listen to his protests. He was returned to the County Jail for another period. When the time was up he resolved to get out of the county aa fast as possible. He started north through Antelope Valley. He Was pounced upon and, for a third time, hurled back among the low com panions who had mocked him on his last departure. He then and there took a solemn oath that he would never do another stroke of work in this State as long aa he lived, and from the fact that he has been arrested several times since, it may be supposed he is keeping his promise. , The maxim of "Give the man a chance" appears to go everywhere ex cept among the officers of the law in certain sections of this county. If a man has just got out of jail, it might seem to stand to reason tbat he could not in stantly secure a job. On his departure from jail he ought to be supplied with a ticbet-of-leave, which should exempt him from arrest as long as he was on the . move, and evidently making an effort to get work. If he wants to leave the county, it is a wish which should be gratified and not interfered with. As to the professional tramps who are now beirg supported in ease and idle ness, at the expense of the county, it is the universal opinion of those who are familiar with the situation, that they would give this locality a wide berth if they were required to work eight or ten hours a day on the road in a chain gang. The City Jail, as has been mentioned in the article, has a chain gang, and it manages to accomplish a good deal of work for the city, and it is held that there is no imaginable reason why the country should not pursue a similar line of poiicy. It need not be supoosed that labor such as these men could be set to do on the roads about the country would be open to the objections which are usually made to convict labor, for they could be employed to do work which would otherwise be left un done. Their labor in the long run would be worth all the expense to which the county would be put for two or three guards to direct the work, and it would have the very desirable effect of making professional vagrancy lesß enjoyable.
