Ladies are distributing slips in the city advising everybody to write to a' Congressman or Postmaster - General Wanamaker urging the reduction of let ter postage to one cent. The idea is a good one. Whoever has glanced at a pamphlet written by George W. James, F. R. A. S., F. R. H. S., F. G. S., member of Victorian Institute, etc.. entitled "The Guiding Light — Physiology for the Young," will be astonished that the au thor has never been arrested for circu lating obscene literature. It is to the last degree filthy and immoral. A caterpillar has made its appear ance in this city and its environs in the last few days, which is very destructive to flowers and vegetation. Some say it is the army worm. But whatever it is, it has come in such numbers that it is doing an infinite amount of injury. It will probably soon turn into a butterfly and take to itself wings, when it will fly away, to the satisfaction of everybody. The Tribune claims that it was almost the only paper on tbe Pacific Coast thati had tbe sagacity to see the great import ance of annexing Lower California. We may add that tbe Tribune was also one of the few papers that bad the sagacity to discover the wonderful placer wealth of the Santa Clara mines. The wonder ful auriferous wealth of that El Dorado still remains undiscovered outside of the editorial rooms of the Tribune. The "coon," as the Herald expected he would do, got away with Cardiff last night. In addition to his thick skull, Professor Jackson is said by experts to be the beet pugilist alive. Sullivan and Kilrain have declined to meet him on the ground of his color. They are wise in their day and generation. Tbe general rule, however, has been that a pugilist is expected to meet all comers, irrespective of color. Australia seems to have a faculty of turning out champions in all lines of sport, and notably in pugilism and rowing. Dr. Heinzeman has circulated a peti tion, which has been very extensively signed, asking the Council to take steps to abate tbe sewer-gas nuisance, which is especially flagrant of nights in the business center of the city. The smell of sewer gas that infects the atmosphere of the heart of the city from 10 o'clock on. is positively alarming, and the city authorities would do well to thoroughly flush all the sawers at once. Perhaps the late spell of warm weather has caused this sewer gas to gererate and spread abnormally; but, if there is any means of arresting it, no time should be lost in so doing. The bear stories told by Mr. Sexton in a recent trial will appear marvelous to people who have recently come to this State. Indeed tbey might appear apoc ryphal to anybody if they had not been related under the solemnity cf an oath. We mnst confess that they are appal lingly wondeiful to us, even coming as they do under the solemn attestation of a deposition. If Uncle Dan'l can so excite our admiration at his pioneer experiences when be is held within the cold confines of an examination in court, we are lost to divine the marvels he could relate un hampered by the restraints of an oath. The Chamber of Commerce will hold a meeting this afternoon to take action npon the matter of securing a decent ex hibit of the products of this county, to be placed in the permanent exposition held in San Francisco by the State' Board of Trade. The Herald's article drawing attention to the fact that Los Angeles was now represented in that ex hibition by only a few bottles of wine and a couple of dozen decayed lemons, has aroused the public on this subject. We either ought to be decently rep resented in that exhibition, or not represented at all. Mr. Higgins, Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, says that our producers failed to respond to hit; appeals to send in arti cles to be placed on exhibition in San Francisco, and that is tho reason for our failure to be decently represented there. We are assured that an average of five hundred visitors are registered at the ex hibition every d >y. It is worth our while to attract the attention of that number of strangers to the superior character of our soil prodnctions, and we hope that the meeting this afternoon will result in such action as will secure con tributions that will be a credit to our county. THE LOS ANGELAS DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 27. 1889. Favorable Conditions. There is a great deal ol money in 1 Angeles just now seeking | Any one who cart s to cast his r-yesover , the advertising columns ot the daily : press will find lhat the offers to loan i money are largely in excess of those to , sell land, which is a quite healthy indi cation. The rates of interest are also coming down very sensibly. There is a large amount of money in this city just now which can be had in small sums at rates ranging from eight to eleven percent, gross. These figures are still high, but they Bre very much lower than the rates which prevailed a couple of months ago. Of course, in large trans actions the rates are very much lower in fact, quite reasonable. The banks are full of money, and everywhere there is a feeling that things are picking up. Los Angeleß county just now is a specially inviting field for investment. Tbe pro cess of liquidation has been successfully accomplished, and there has been but one great failure in the ordeal— that of Mr. Webster, of Pasadena. t The swing of the pendulum has been as great in the direction of depressing val ues as it formerly was in enhancing them, leaving more bargains in real estate in Los Angeles to-day than in any other p'.rtion of the American continent. The natural result will be a large im migration for settlement and the acquisi tion of property for the income it will yield. Even in the dullest of the so called dull times which have been wit nessed in Los Angeles since the cessation of the paper-town craze, large amounts of outside capital have been invested here. Much of it came from Chicago, San Francisco and Oakland. We are in , a position to state that much of it will shortly come from New York. The peculiar climatic, geographical, railway and ocean advantages of Los Angeles , are well understood in the East. Capital i ists that would not have tcucbed property i with a forty-foot pole when figures were i inflated in advance of developments, are ■ quite willing to see its advantages when ■ at the bedrock figures that prevail to i j day. Many of the improvements that are taking place now are being made with outside money, not in the form of loans, but in the shape of downright invest ments. A very impoitant factor in the revival which is under way for Los Angeles, is the splendid harvest which is ahead. The unprecedented acreage which has been sown to the cereals is looking well all over the county. We shall not only have plenty of hay, barley and wheat for our own consumption, but a great deal for export, and prices promise to be unusu ally good. Dakota, which has lately furnished from thirty to forty millions of bushels of wheat annually, will this year be obliged to buy that staple for food and seed. The wheat crop of Aus tralia has suffered greatly from drouth, and this is also the case with Kansas and other portions of the North west. With normal crops in Russia, England and France, wheat is certain to rule high. The supply is small, and all the conditions point to an active market at remunerative prices. Bailway development promises to be active in Los Angeles county, even mak ing no account of the several transconti nental projects which have been much discussed. The wharf project at Santa Monica seems to be a certain enterprise, and the new wharf at Redondo Beach and the new railway from Redondo Beach to the city are assured. With enormously increased production, cheap lands, improved facilities for transporta tion, abundant money and the process of liquidation nearly completed, all the conditiocs of prosperity exist here in un usual measure, and great activity in all lines of business may be confidently looked for at an early day. Discrimination Against California. It is universally claimed that California will be unable to place her canned fruits in the Eastern markets at a profit under the freight rate lately established of $1.20 per hundred pounds. The canned fruit industry of this Coast is dependent on Eastern consumers for its success. Unless we can ship our fruit productions thus put up at reason able freight rates, it will be useless to try to build up the industry. In 1888 we shipped to the East about 200,000 cases less than in 1887, the difference being about 30 per cent. In the latter year the freight was 75 cents per hundred pounds; but in 1888 it was advanced to $1.10. Now that even last year's rate lias been in creased, we may look for a still farther falling off. It would be difficult to give a reasonable explanation for this suicidal railroad policy. Certainly the bnßinees interests of the railroads would seem to demand that an industry of this character—one that can be almost indefinitely increased—ought to be en couraged instead of crushed, and we have seen that the positive tendency cf the increase of transportation rates is to discourage it, and thus lesten the business of the roads. One is tempted to seriously ask whether, in the face of such a policy, the roads want business. We have been told that the Inter- State Commerce law ia to blame for this and the other extraordinary advances in freight rates. But if that were true, why is it that canned goods coming west ward only pay 90 cents per hundred from Missouri river points to this Coast? The theory of the Intar-State Commerce law is to reg ulate the rates according to distance of carriage. Well, tbe carriage is just as long coining as going, and if 99 cents is enough one way, it ought to be enough tbe other. This discrimination of the Transcontinental Railroad Association against the Pacific Coast ought to be tested. If there is any virtue in the In ter-State law it ought to be successfully invoked to correct an abuse of this flagitious character. .Bat there ought to be no need to appeal [to the courts to correct such an abuse. The business sense of the railroad men themselves ought to induce them, for the sake of their own interests, to correct it. Indeed it should never have been necessary to call atten tion to so flagrant an assault upon a great industry. The policy of the roads, under a proper idea of advancing their own interests, would have been to encourage the increase of such industries as that of fruit canning. With proper encouragement California can become the greatest fruit-producing country of the world. It can supply not only the Eastern Si.ttes, with its superior fruits preserved in tin, but it can supply the demand of all Europe. Surely, an industry capable of such unlimited ex pansion, is a proper object for the care ful nursing into healthy and robust pro portions by the transportation companies. In other columns we allude to the fact that New York money is seeking for in vestment in Los Angeles, and a large flow of it may be looked for later on. In the meantime, however, we may mention a fact which has not yet reached the general ear. Judge Widney, of the University .Bank, iain New York. Afew days ago the cashier of that bank received orders to put in a bid for the $100,000 of county bonds to be issued on account of the new Court house. The conditions of the bid have not leaked out, but we are in a position to say that they are advantageous to the county. We now fear that this offer is to be withdrawn. The bids were to have been opened and the award male by the Supervisors on Thursday; but when the Board met the time was post poned to May Gth. It is now said that the New York bidders don't wish to wait that long, and will use their money in other directions. This is to be re gretted. If we could establish intimate financial relations with New York cap italists, the effect would be greatly to our advantage. Jackson got away wilh Patsey Cardiff in San Francisco last night. Now let the colored brother try his hand on the Cardiff' Giant. If he can lay tbe stone man out, we'll give him full leave to smash every bone in Sullivan's body. AMUSEMENTS. "Little Lord Fauntleroy." Another large audience witnessed the performance of Little Lord Fauntleroy at rhe Grand last night. Flossie took the part of the "Little Lord," and Wallie, as the bootblack, was a great success. There will be a matinee this afternoon at the usual hour, and, without doubt, the attendance will be as large as it has been during the week. The Specialty Stiow. At the Los Angeles Theater the spe cialty company is drawing full houses. The artists on the bars ar.d tbe young ladies who fly around on the trapezes and take risky leaps seem to be the fa vorites. There will be a matinee to-day. The Minstrels. Next week Goodyear, Cook & Dillon's minetrels will be at the Grand. The programme is said to be a good one. Fartnl's Farewell. It is gratifying to know that Monday, evening, the 29th, an audience large in numbers will assemble at the Lob An geles Theater to bid farewell to our well known and genial artist, Sig. Farini. It is seldom that a teacher is capable of molding raw material into as promising vocalists as the Signor has done, and in Jl Trovatore and Faust on Monday even ing, we shall have a chance to realize the result of seme of his most successful training. Miss Lnlu Beattie as "Mar gueritta" will, by her charming voice and winning acting, captivate ber nu merous admirers. As "Siebel," Miss Annie Cohn will give evidence of the thoroughness of her instruction. A good stage presence, coupled with conscien tious study, will win for her deserved success. Rehearsals are progressing very satisfactorily, tickets are selling rapidly, and all indications point to a farewell to Sig. Farini commensurate with the position he has bo long filled hero in musical circles. The Ninth Street Bridge. Editors Herald : I see in the report of the Council proceedings of the 22d inst. where Councilman Shafer calls the attention of the Street Superintendent and Bridge Committee to the necessity of completing the approaches to the Ninth street bridge, and I would ask, in all can dor, of what advantage would it be to the public to have the approaches completed ? A team could not reach the approaches by any street, and $5,000 would not make it passable from Boyle Heights to the bridge, and on the street west of the bridge it is impassable for three-quarters of a mile for teams. It looks to a disin tereeta-d taxpayer as a little queer to ask the Council to expend the city money in the present depleted condition of the treasury, to enhance the value of prop erty of a few laud speculators. I trust the Bridge Committee will see that the city's money is spent where it will do those now living some good, and let those who are here when city has her 500,000 inhabitants complete the approaches to the Ninth street bridge, if they then deem it necessary to do so. Taxpayer. Proper Precaution. Young man (confidentially)—l want to see some of your solitaire rings. Jeweler—Engagement ring, I pre sume? Young man—Y-yes, sir. Jeweler—Here's just the thing you want. Alaska stone, rolled plate and warranted for a year. Young man—But I want a real stone. Jeweler—Of course. As I was going to say, we give one of the plated rings along with each real stone. They are exact duplicates. If the engagement is a success it is very easy to substitute the real for the imitation—[Perre Haute Express. rVotßtna" New. Mrs. Fangle—Well, this is Etrange!

President Harrison's Latest Appointments. A REWARD FOR METAAFA. Reports from Consuls Griffin, of Sydney, N. S W., and Smithers, of Tien-Tsein. I Associated Press Dispatches to tho Herald. I Washington, April 20. —The President has made the following appointments: Dr. Daniel Dorcl ester, of Boston, Super intendent of Indian Schools; Warren Truitt, of The Dalles, Ore., Register of the Land Office at Lakeview, Oregon; Thomas B. Baldwin, of Folsom, N. M., Register of the Land Office at Folsom. MKTAAKA'S SERVICES APPRECIATED. The officials of the State and Navy De partments are considering what can be done in the matter of suitabjy rewarding the Samoan King, Mataafa, for his timely efforts to rescue the American soldiers and tho property wrecked at Samoa. Admiral Kimberly's report con tained a strong recommendation upon this point, which cannot be neglected. It is probable that a Congressional war rant must be had for the bestowing of any suitable reward ; but the Navy De partment may be able, meanwhile, to give the King a token of its appreciation in the shape of the boats, or some of the property now stored at Apia. DAIRY PRODUCTS AT THE ANTIPODES. Consul Griffin, at Sydney, N. S. W., in his report to the State Department, says that the recent introduction of American appliances for the manufac ture of hatter and cheese has given an impetus to dairy farming in New South Wales. The absurd Quarantine laws against the importation of cattle have operated seriously against any improve ment in the condition of cat le, and there is an agitation for the removal of the restrictions. Fleuro-pneumonia has made its appearance in some districts, but the process of inoculation has been successfully used to check its spread. The co-operative system of making but ter is becoming very popular, and is found to be far more satief ictory and profitable than the old method. The Consul says, in conclusion, that tho new protective duty upon imported diary products is likely to bring about a result directly opposite to that which was in tended, as, before the duty was imposed, the exports were frequently in excess of the imports. THE INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT QUESTION. Assistant Secretary Ticbenor baa noti fied all persons interested in the question of the dutiable character of cars carrying merchandise between points in Canada and ihe United States, that they will have a hearing on the subject at the De partment on the 14th proximo. CHINESE RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION. Consul Smithers, at Tientsen, reporte to the State Department that the Chinese government has authorized the extension of the Tientsen and Tongshan Railway, which will make it possible to reach Peking from Tientsen in three hours, whereas now it requires as many days. Tbe Consul says China may now be said lo be fairly entered upon a career of rail way construction. Idaho's coming statehood. Delegate Dv Bois believes Idaho will be admitted as a State during the coming session. BALL. AND BAT. Result* of the Principal Uamu Played. Yesterday.

Boston, April 2(l.—A stubborn glove contest occurred to-night at the rooms of the Bay State Club between Cal. McCar thy, of New York, and Johnny Murphy, of New York, for trophies valued at $800 and $200, respectively. From the start McCarthy forced the fighting, but Mur phy laid in wait for him and returned his blows with interest. In the first round there was savage work, and Murphy twice knocked his opponent to the floor. The last blow broke a bone in Murphy's forearm, but this did not de ter him from continuing the fight. For three more rounds Murphy bested McCarthy, using only the right hand, and in the third round he again knocked Murphy down. In the fourth round, Murphy's seconds absolutely refused to allow him to continue, and the fight wts accordingly awarded to "Cal." The Iroquois Adjourn.

Jackson Whips the Minne apolis Man. 3ARDIFF GETS BADLY PUNISHED. A Rattling Fight from First to Last. An Even Thing for the First Few Rounds. f Ansoelated Press Dispatches to tbe Hxbai.d.l San Fbancibco, April 26.—The fight to a finish Between Peter Jackson, the col ored holder of the heavy-weight cham pionship of Australia and of the Pacific Ooast, and Patsy Cardiff, of Minneapolis, for a purse of $3,000 and the heavy weight championship of the coast, took place in the rooms of the California Athletic Club to-night. .Probably no event of the kind has created such gen eral interest in this city since the battle between Jackson and Joe McAuliffe, last December, and the rooms of the Club at an early hour were crowded to their utmost capacity. The betting had been brisk during the week, with odds gener ally 2 to 1 in Jackson's favor, although some pools were sold this evening at 25 to 10. Jackson weighed in at 200 pounds and Cardiff at 183. Jackson was sec onded by Jack Haines and Sam Fitz patrick, and Cardiff by John Donaldson and Tommy Warren. Hiram Cook was referee. THE FIQnT COMMENCES. At 9 r. m. the event of the evening was announced. Jackson was the first to enter the ring at 9:10 p. m. He was dressed in tights with light blue socks. He was soon followed by Cardiff, who was in blue tights. They were greeted with tremendous applause. Both men appeared in prime condition. As the men performed the customary hand ehake, the room rang with applause. Cardiff appeared the least trifle nervous. Jackson wore a stolid air. Time was called at 9:20. The men sparred cautiously for an opening. Jackson led for the belt with his right. Cardiff drop ped back. A quick interchange of blows and clinching followed. Jackson fell ba 'k againtt the ropes. A clinch followed, and Jackson got in two blows on Cardiffs ear. Cardiff stood well back, and when Jackson led Cardiff seized him by the neck and forced him against the ropes. Cries of "foul" arose, but were not heeded. Cardiff held ou till the men were parted by the referee. Cries went up of "Cardiff is a foul fighter!" "Jack sou will do him up!" SECOND ROUND, Cardiff rushed Jackson and a clinch followed, but Jackson slipped away and gave him a cross left. The men clinched, but broke without a blow. Cardiff led, Jackson crossed, then countered, and the Australian fell back. A clinch followed a clinch, and each got in several good blows. Jackson got in two good ones on the nose, and the round ended. THIRD ROUND. Cardiff came up confident. Jackson was savage, and hit him a terrific blow in the ribs. Cardiff responded with a sounder on the cheek, and elope in-fight ing followed. Cardiff' forced the Austra lian againtt the ropes, and got in one on his wind. Cardiff called forth many admiring shoots by his quickness and the heavines of his blows, and the easy manner in which he slipped under Jack son's terrible left. FOURTH ROUND. Cardiff came up cool, but seemed less fresh than Jackson, though both men were burning. Jackson led with his left itnd Cardiff tapped him lightly. A fierce rush was then made by the negro who got in a terrific blow on Car diff's nose. Cardiff returned with several on the ribs that made the room sound. The round closed with the men about on a par, but Cardiff had apparently got in more blows. fifth round. Jackson caught Cardiff's right ba nd in bis mouth and followed it by one on the nose. Cardiff pushed hhn over the ropes and another cry of foul arose. They were now fighting in Cardiff's corner and Jackson got in two on Cardiff's left ear.
