The Chamber of Commerce
Holds an Election.
A Presentation to the Secretary.
Election of Board of Directors.
Miscellaneous Business.
The annual election and regular i
monthly meeting of the Chamber of j
Commerce took place yesterday. The
ballot box was kept in the room of the
Secretary, and voting began at 9 o'clock
and continued until evening.
The regular meeting was called to
order by President E. W, Jones at 3
o'clock. After the reading of the min
utes, the Committee on Nominations
offered the name of Fred L. Alles, which
was laid over for two weeks as required
by the constitution.
The Secretary read a letter in which
attention was called to the fact that
three members of the State Board of
Agriculture, two of them from the north,
would soon have served out their term of
office. Mr. Lindley moved that the
Chamber formally request the Governor
to appoint one member from the south
ern portion of the otate. Captain Sea
mans was in favor of taking action as
soon as possible to select some man
whose name might be offered to the
Governor. It was moved as an amend
ment that the whole matter be referred
to the Board of Directors with power to
act and to nominate a man. Tbe motion
was carried.
The Secretary read a communication
from the Secretary of tbe State Board of
Agriculture, which has already been pub
lished in the Hbrald, with regard to the
local Board of Directors and Superin
tendent of the Citrus Fair. It was turned
over to the Citrus Fair Committee.
A resolution was read and placed on
file calling for the appointment of a per
manent committee of five to undertake
the work of getting together a Southern
California display for the World's Fair
of 1892.
There being no further regular business,
the next order was the annual address of
the President, Major E. W. Jones. He
spoke as follows:
Oentlemen of the Loa Angela Chamber oj
I can conceive of no better way to oc
cupy your time aud fulfill my duty oi
giving you the usual address on this '
occasion, than to briefly review the
labors of the Cnamber for the paat year
and make suggestions with regard to J
those of the year just begun. It will be
unnecessary to dwell upon any but the '
more important of those labors or to be
prolix in the suggestions I might make,
for doubtless, to many of you, they will '
be merely an expression of your own '
though ts. '
A year ago our first annual meeting 1
was held. We were a new, untried, in- c
experienced organization. We hardly '
knew whether the elements of which we c
were composed would assimilate and t
work with sufficient harmony and energy j
to accomplish anything or not. We soon
found that there were plenty o:» ques- 1
tiona of public interest that !
cur province and which it became our 1
duty to take hold of. We had had a :
good temporary Secretary, and we elected J
a good new one. He took hold of the 1
work with a vim. We had Borne good i
committees. They also went to work to !
see what could be made out of their de
partments. It was immediately found 6
by the workers that there was so much
to'do that they mutt work together. The 8
Committee on Statistics, etc., got out the <•
pamphlet we published. They labored '
night and day and with the leatt poasi- 1
ble delay they gave us a work as full of 1
meat aa an egg is. Among our first ef- 1
forts was tint to get an increase of the
appropriation for the public baildiog. A
little homely structure about the size of
an ordinary dwelling-house was being
built to accommodate the postoffice,
United States courts and the other fed
eral officers whose business was equal to
that of a city of 100,000 inhabitants.
We were in great danger of being afflicted
with an excrescence upon the fair face cf
our town which would have put us to the
blush whenever we were obliged to look
at it or speak of it.
We put a stop to it. We asked for an
additional appropriation of $600,000 for
the erection of a building such as would
be both useful and ornamental. The
proper officer has reconsidered the whole
matter, aud, actuated by the extremest
economy as is required of him, has
recommended an addition of $350,000
It, ouiht still to be $600,000, or a total of
$750,000, but the $350,000 will give
many a mason, carpenter, painter,
plumber and other artisan and laborer
work, put bread in the mouths of many
women and children, give many a mer
chant custom, pay many bills and settle
many debts. We are no worse off in re
spect to work for the laborer, or bread
for the hungry, than other cities cf like
size, but the expenditure of euch a sum
would unquestionably be of great benefit
to this community. A further addition
of $250,000 out of the national treasury,
with no interest to send away for it,
would be so much better, would give
wages to so many more men, that, if it
could be obtained, all other considera
tions ought to yield to that and the effort
be made. We have good reason for con
fidence thp.t the $350,000 additional will
be granted.
Another work in the interest of every
citizen, whether poor or rich, has been
that for the further improvement of the
harbor of San Pedro. OurCommi'tee ou
Commerce has prepared maps, statistics
and statements, and placed them in the
proper department at Washington, and
in the hand jof Senators and Congress
men, showing the importance of carrying
on the work and enlarging ita scope at
that port. We have taken Senators arid
Representatives, members of the most
important Congressional committees
there, and showed them the nature of
tbe improvements desired and the vast
advantage that would follow their con
struction, both to this region immediately
tributary—larger than all New England,
and with a quarter of a million people—
and tbe whole interior and Southwest.
If we fail of getting this benefit, on which
at least half of our future possible pros
perity depends, it will not be for want of
effort on the part of this) Chamber of
Commerce. While, if we succeed, we
shall claim that without our co-operation,
thia great work which means the b -st
of coast and trans-Pacific commerce and
the best of railroads for onr purposes,
would, have been a thing of the uncer
tain future.
These two enterprises, together with
the cobstant agitation of tbe project of a
railway from Utah to Los Angeles; the
constant recognition of the vast advan
tage, the almost absolute need of oar
community of this new enterprise, have
been perhaps the most important with !
which the Chamber has been occupied, i
Oar intercourse with people represent- •
ing every business and occupation in the i
community has taught us that our true 1
Held of usefulness lies in bringing in the
means to stimulate business and furnish
labor to the unemployed, and bringing
in settlers for tbe soil and seekers for the
sanitary advantages our country offers.
We have been taught that right against
our doors, awaiting the means of trans
portation, lie metals and minerals of
value and quantity sufficient to bring us
great wealth and prosperity as a manu
facturing canter. With manuiacturea,
skilled labor finds employment and
wages, a new stimulus is given to trade,
and an enlarged market to tbe farmer.
The Utah railroad will give ue access
to the best interior market for our pro
ducts; a new, and that the most desir
able, avenue of travel to and from this
point, by which a large and new class of
visitors will come to our community. I
enlarge upon the-e matters a little to
show that the Chamber is alive to their
importance. Any one of them is of suf
ficient magnitude to occupy the whole
time of this body if other things could be
Our other work yon all know. We
have nrged the increase of acreage under
cultivation. We have urged the passage
of a semi-annual tax collection law, and
tbe repeal of the mortgage tax law; we
aided the adoption of the Reform School
bill and the location of the school here,
we brought the President of the Carson
and Colorado railroad to Los Angeleß;
renewed the project of building that road
to Mojave, waked up Inyo county and
renewed trade relations with it. We did
much work in the interest of sugar beet
raising. We have done much to adver
tise this city and county, both independ
ently and in connection with tbe State
Board of Trade, through old and new
"Californiaon Wheels," and in the State
Board rooms.
We have labored assiduously to unite
all Southern California, commercially
and for advertising pur posse, knowing
that "in union theie ia strength." We
made such a demonstration of our arid
land and irrigation interests as to give
oar Representative the Chairmanship
of tbe new committee on that
subject, and to advertise our
country widely. We brought together
the syndicate and capital to cany the
grape crop. I might go on indefinitely,
but this will suffice to show that we have
not neglected the trust imposed upon us.
The Secretary's report will show what
little pecuniary harden we have been to the
community. We have entertained num
bers of distinguished guests, but it has
been mostly by meand from our own
pockets. Many trips to San Francisco,
Sacramento and other places have been
made during the year, but the expense
has not been borne by the Chamber in
any case but once.
Now let ua glauce at the year before
us. The improvement of San Pedro
harbor aud eventually of our other bar
bora is, like the poor, always with n>.
There can be no cessation of work in
that direction. If anything is ever to be
accomplished there, it must be pushed
energetically and persistently. Oor Rep
reaentative, General Vandever, mudt
have his bands upheld and every as
aiatance possible furnished him. Tne
public building should not be lost sight
of. We must keep np the agitation
about the new railroads. The Board
of Supervisors, the City Council,
the people of San Pedro and the
people of the country are aroused, and
we may find we are able to do much to
influence the action of the companies
and hasten their advent here. We have
much work and some expense before us
in keeping up the exhibit in "California
on Wheels" and in the State Board of
Frade; aud if we advertise creditably wo
have much printing to do and at a con
siderable expense.
The statistics of the county are net in
available shape. They should Bhow in
detail the whole list of our products,
their quantity, character, value, where
raised, and as many other particulars as
possible. Our State agricultural report
is deficient as to county statistics, and
we should rectify the metier. Tbe Cham
ber should watch new manufacturing
and other enterprises which are sougcit
to be established here by outsiders oa
local capital. Many of them are based
on inventions or new ideas, untried or
failures elsewhere, and only operate till
I the capital is expended. They are often
gotten up to give somebody a job or a
bonus. Suca schemes the community
should be warned against, while legit
imate enterprises shouid be encouraged
on proof of their good character being
The Chamber should prepare during
the year, as far as possible, to suggest
such measures for action by the S:ate
Legislature, at its next session, aa will
afford this community relief from the
operation of laws which are injurious or
burdensome—like that which governs
the collection oiftaxes, and the mortgag-
t*x Jaw;|*hith p events the carrying
out of any needed or greatly advanta
geous public improvements or raising
money thereior, like tbe improvement ol
parks and streets and the building of
boulevard*; and should discuss at leaßt
the advisability of asking for power to
offer inducements for valuable public en
terprises. It ia unnecessary to enumera'e
further. The dutiea of an institution
like this, set to guard the general com
mercial interests of a large community,
are numberless and inoessant. An in
stitution of the kind of tbia Chamber of
Commerce work 3 directly or indirectly
for every man, woman and child in the
community. No other organization ia bo
thoroughly engaged in the effort to
ameliorate tbe physical condition of tbe
people as this. It labors to pro
vide wages fur the working man and
trade for the merchant. It provides
more relief for rha needy than anything
else can possibly do for the money. No
charitable institution can approach it in
the amount it ia able to do for tho poor
of ita section. All this it does by urging
improvements of every sort and induc
ing the disbursement of capital for labor.
In my opinion the Chamber is the first
institution in the city to which any citi
zen should contribute both his time and
his meanHj perhapi outside of his home
and his church. As a business proposi
tion, a banker, merchant or professional
man, workingman or citizen of whatev* r
calling, can earn more, or make a larger
profit on the investment of a reasonable
share of his time, money, energy and
intelligence in such an organization than
in any other to which he can put them.
I fail to see why we shall not eventually
be able to impress this fact upon the
minds of the majority of our people and
run our membership up into the thou
sands. Union and energy, thy name is
Chicago! Would to heaven it were also,
and it may yet be, Los Angeles!
I desire to make some expression of
my appreciation of the service of the
Secretary during the past year. Mr.
Higgins has put his heart and soul into
the work of building up the Chamber;
he has made it a personal affair, a labor
of love and devotion. He has had a
lively realization of the importance and
possibilities of such an institution, and
under many a discouraging circumstance,
has kept faithfully at his task, overcom
ing obstacles which would have dis
couraged and discomfited a weaker hoart
and a less ready brain. What the
Chamber would have done without a
man of his ability in tho office, I confess
lamat a loss to conjecture. I wish to
testil/ to the cordial relations that have
always existed between us, never for a
moment ruffled to my knowledge, and
to his earnest cooperation in such meas
ures for the good of the organization and
the community as I hays been able to
I wish to express hearty regret that
circumstances could not have so com
bined as to make it to his advantage to
accept the Secretaryship for at least an
other year, both for personal reasons and
because I think that with his assistance
in that office this Chamber of Commerce
could within a year enlist the coopera
tion of every citizen with a grain of pub
lic spirit in his composition, and be
made a power capable of controlling the
commercial destiny of Southern Cali
Judge Filzgeiaid, in behalf of the
committee appointed for the purpose,
presented the following resolution with
regard to tho resignation of the Secre
tary :
Whereas, The Secretary of the Cham
ber, Mr. M, R. Higgins, has been ten
dered and has accepted a far more lucra
f.ue office, and severed his official con
nection with this body; and
Whereas, Tho office of Secretary cf
the Chamber ia one of difficult, compli
cated and incessant labor, and which
requires, for the fullest efficiency, versa
tile and large ability, unflagging energy
and a genial disposition, and is, in fact,
an office the able conduct cf which is
vital to the existence of the Chamber;
Whereas, Mr. Higgins has shown
himself possessed of all these qualities in
the highest degree, and, with all due
recognition of the services of the other
officers, has been a formidable factor in
the building up of the organization and
the work it has been engaged in for the
benefit of this community, therefore be it
Resolved, That the Chamber viows with
deep regret his retirement, and feels that
his office will be moat difficult to refill,
while it at the same time rejoices in this
good fortune which has come to him, and
wishes him a continued increase of pros
Resolved, That these resolutions shall
be spread upon the minutes of the
Mr. Higgins thereupon drew n roll ol
paper from hia pocket and read the fol
lowing speech:
Having bad due aud timely notice
through the daily papers this morning
that 1 was to bs tho recipient of a testi
monial and set of resolutions, I have
ha*tily prepared, with tho aid of a few
friends, theso impromptu remarks,which
1 will, after the manner of impromptu
speeches on similar occasions, proceed to
inflict on you. Had I bad lorjger notice
and more friends, I think I could have
made the greatest effort of my life. As
it is, I have only time to say that I ap
preciate very highly the resolutions I
know the able committee has prepared,
and the testimonial you have already
placed in the front room, whore I have
examined and approved the same at my
leisure. More than either of these, how
ever, do I appreciate the spirit which
prompted either or both. ComiDg from
those who have had daily relations with
me, and are the beet judges of what has
been done and could be done
with tho resources at our command,
it is very gratifying. A pioneer's
lot, as a rule, is not a happy
one. Our experience in organizing: hoU
building up this Chamber has been no
exception to the rule, as our lot has not.
at all times been happy. The knowledge
that we were doing all that we could
with our resources has oftentimeo been
the only reward we have had, and such
rewards, under stinging end unjust criti
cisms, are frequently very bitterly ac
cepted. However, the outcome has
been gratifying, and the Chamber of
Commerce, in my opinion, can go for
ward and be a power in the land for the
advancement of the material interests oi
this country.
In parting with you aa your Secretary,
I have only the kindest recoil- ctions for
each and every member. Many have,
during the past year, recognized the good
intentions as manifested in our efforts,
and have spoken kindly, cheering words
which have been cherished by the re
ceiver and have aided materially to
lighten the load which eomatimes
seemed a little burdensome. To all such
I want to say: "Do the same with my
successor, whoever he may be, with this
addition—aid him to the extent of your
power and postion by active co-operation.
I havo failod only in oz:e particular, in
accomplishing, what I started out to do
personally of those things that were in
sight. That is, I have not liquidated all
our obligations. About $100 etill re
mains unpaid, and today it hangß cvt;r
me as a weight I feel I ought to have
] lifted. But the general work grow so
1 rapidly and absorbed so much of my.
time that I could not solicit new mem
bers the last few months as I
. did the first two or three.
With this exception I am quite well sat
' ii-fie i to turn ever the office and nro
nouuca it in excellent condition for good
' work. lam proud to say that the affairs
of this orgaDizttion have at all times
been earned on on a broad bisis
and have been open to the criticism of
• the entire community. There have been
. no j lbs, no railroading, no Echomes for
advancing private interests, and tbe
i future prosperity of this Chamber is well
assured, if this course is persistently fol
' Tho membership roll should be much
larger. Tho«e who have been watching
and waiting ro see the organization col
lapse ought now, at least, to bo convinced
that the inntitutiou is on a sound basis
and is worthy of their support. The
officers of the Chamber and the Board of
Directors have been faithful to your
interests, and are deserving of
your kindest regards. They have
apent much lime in your
interests to the nr-glect of their own af
' fairs. To each of them personally I owe
a debt of gratitude for tho unanimity
with which they have always rallied
to the support of any dvnerv-
J tag measure that has been brought to
; their attention by me. I have had the
best support and tho kindest treatment
from each aud everyone. My relations
with Msjor Jonee, the President, have
been extremely cordial. We have both
felt at times chafed and worried, hut be
has never in any way committed an act
toward me except of kindness and good
will. He has given much more (fine
attention and thought than any
of you, however familiar with
our affairs, can imagine. Ho
is deserving of your earnest support and
, should forever be held in kind remembrance
' brance by you. It has wholly been a
i labor of love on hia part. Personally I
owe him a debt of gratitude for his unrem
itting labor in my behalf. Again
gentlemen, permit me to thank you for
this expression of your personal regard
■ I shall ever cherißh this occasion as' one
of the proudest and happiest moments of
my life.
1 Tho Chamber then adjourned to the
ante-room of the Secretary's office and a
handsome book case was presented to
Mr. Higgins ns a tributo of.the regard of
bis friends in the Chamber. Mr. Hig
