Tbe organisation of a corporation here for the purpose of establishing a cream ery seems to be in the hands of parties who are able and determined to make it a success. The plan of operations, as outlined to us by one of the active or ganizers, is to divide tbe connty into dairy districts, and wherever there are two hundred or more milch cows in a vicinity to make arrangements to have the milk all brought to one central place where, by the aid of a patent separator, the cream will be extracted and sent to the factory in this city. Here it will be treated, turned into butter and made ready for market. In the meantime the 'Company will make arrangements with the Gold Storage Company for apart ments in their freezing rooms, where the butter can be kept fresh for any length of time. Tbe company will fix a price -upon the milk which will induce the farmers of every neighborhood to in crease their milch stock and to famish as large an amount of cream as possible. In connection with the creamery it is contemplated to manufacture cheese. We understand tbat the Main-street Bank, the managers of which have taken a deep and active interest in the starting of this promising home enterprise, have signified their intention of making lib eral loans to farmers who desire to increase their dairy stock. This will enable many, who have alfalfa lands, but a paucity of means, to stock their farms with cows and put them in the way of securing immediate and profit able returns. It has been estimated that a million dollars, at least, have been drawn from this county each year during the past four years to pay for the butter con sumed by oar people over and above the local production. The creamery will not only put an end to this money drain, but it will enable us to supply other markets. The difference between paying ont a million a year and having a return for onr production from the outside will form quite an important item in itself. We have seen how the withdrawal every year of a million and a half dollars for taxes affects business in this city, and from that we may form an idea of the benefits which will reach all classes by the stoppage of the drain for butter and tbe new money that will reach us for he surplus sold abroad. j Now let us see who will make a prac tical move to cut off the enormous cost to our people for foreign hams and bacon that can be better supplied from potk raised by our own farmers and cured in our own factories. If a pork-enrirg factory were assured here, our farmers would raise not only all the hams and bacon cur people could use, but we would have hog products for exportation. There has been an interested effort made to discourage the pork indusby in this section by giving circulation to the absurd idea that our climate, or some thing else, is prejudicial to the raising of good pork, and that, even after it is raised, it cannot be cured to advantage This is the veriest nonsense. Piga thrive in our corn districts amazingly. At one time the raising of hogs was a very im portant and successful branch of farm husbandry in this county. For many years bacon cured at El Monte had a distinctive celebrity all over the State, and commanded a higher price in the fian Francisco market than the im ported Western article. Ten years ago a •curing factory at East Loa Angeles placed on the market hams of an excellent -quality. We may be asked, why have those industries fallen away if our pork was as good as the Western pork ? This is easily answered. Tbe curse of an over grown monopoly cast ita blight upon the pork-packing business here. The great Armonr Trust sent out ita tentaclea to this Coaat and crushed the local packers out of existence. The industry was not strong enough at that time to withstand the injurious competition of the Trust. But it is different now. We have grown into im portance since that timo, and we are strong enough now to make it unadvisa ble for the Trust to make war upon us. The curing and packing houses of Sacra mento are flouriahing in spite of the Armour Trust, and what can be done in Sacramento can be done in Los Angeles. Besidea, the courts are beginning to wake np to the enormity of Trusts that interfere with the natural currents of trades and induatries, and are giving us deciaionS which, if carried out to their logical con clusion, will affjrd us full protection against their injurious and oppressive methods. If some of our wide-awake business men and capitalists will coop erate with the farmers of this county, it is within their power to make the pork raising and curing and packing industry here one of the greatest significance and pregnant with the most gratifying results. The Oklahoma Republicans propose to secure the balance of power in tbat prospective Territory by inviting the ne groes cf the country to settle there. If they are so anxious for the vote and the society of the colored brother, perhaps Senator Butler will amend his deportation bill by pro ' viding that the negroes of the South be ■hipped to Oklahoma instead of to the Congo State. THB LOS AsQllLfl3 DAILY HERALD: MOSftA* MOKNlftCr JANUARY 20 18b0. A Good Beginning; of a Good Work. There are two things which Los An geles needs—that is, two paramount things. The first is a State of South California, which she may be some time getting, and the second is unlimited home production, which lies within the hands of her own people. It is generally assumed that in every department of manufactures we are insignificant. This is a mistake. We have made a good be ginning in many lines, and while manu factures in Los Angeles are merely in their infancy, they are alive and kick ing. One of these branches we propose to note this morning, and we assure our readers that it ia not a paid puff, and that its appearance will be a great sur prise to the proprietors of the industry. For years and years past the people of this city have been in the habit of exporting immense sums of money to pay for beer consumed hereabouts. We first sent big money to San Francisco, Boca and San Jose, and about 1883 we began importing beer largely from St. Louis, Milwaukee and other points in the East. It would astonish the reader to learn of the prodigious sums thus paid out. The railway tracks were often blockaded with the cars of the An heuser-Busch and Lemps breweries oi St. Louis and the Philip Best and Schlitz breweries of Milwaukee. Of course this beer cost money, which had to be sent out of the country. In addition, the foreign beer passed through co many temperatures that in many cases it had to be fortified, and it did not always reach this Coast in the same condition in which it lqft the East. The question had been often asked amongst sensible people why California barley should be sent to St. Louis, the freight being paid on it, to be manu factured into beer, which, again paying freight, was returned to Los Angeles for consumption. There was cer tainly nothing normal nor defensible in such a roundabout programme. Our local breweries had hitherto confined themselves to the making of steam beers, in which the fermentation had only fairly begun when it reached the human stomach to be completed. In a happy moment for the advancement of theirown fortune, and for the well-beiDg and local pride of Los Angeles, tbe Messrs. Maier & Zobelein adopted the idea that lager beer could be made as well in Los Ange les as anywhere, and they resolved to embark their capital in the enterprise. They remodeled their steam beer brew ery and started in on the manufacture of lager beer. Their first experiment was not a success. By some misadventure a peculiar taste was imparted to it which was not acceptable to the public. Instead of being disconcerted, these energetic gentlemen at once went to work to remodel their works, introducing new capital and new methods. It gives us great pleasure to say that the result has been in every way satisfac tory.. The Philadelphia Brewery is now turning out a beer that cannot be surpassed anywhere for clarity of color, wholeaomenesa and gen eral excellence. The brewery gives our farmers a local market for large quanti ties of their barley and hops. This connty is already a large producer of the former staple and ita hop production can readily be made the largest in the United States. The Philadelphia Brew ery, having demonstrated its ability to make a superior article cf beer, there is no reason why Los Angeles should not become one of the greatest beer manu facturing centers in the world. A mem ber of the St. Louis Exchange informed the writer that California barley had only one rival, that of Canada, as a brewing staple, and that it even led the Canadian barley. We have pretty reliable information that a wealthy gentleman from Kansas City ia about to start a great brewery here. The more the merrier. The Meaara. Maier & Zobelein have shown that beer of an unsurpaaaed grade can be made in Loa Angelea, taking the world m the standard of comparison. Let the good work go on. Tne surer Qh. itlon in a. Xutabell. The great argument against legislation favorable to silver made by the gold bugs has been tbat the presence of sil ver money in large quantity would have a tendency to repel gold, force it from circulation and send it to Europe. Of course, this is all the merest rot. If the stamp of the government of the United States has been sufficient to give value to a mere piece of green paper, its stamp upon silver, which has an intrinsic value and which could quickly be placed upon a par with gold, would be equally or more effectual, and the silver certificates based on silver would circulate quite as readily as any other kind of money, as they do at present. It is only by the treachery of our Wall-street financiers that England, with her single gold stan dard, is permitted to obstruct the pro gress in this country of silver to its rightful status. There is, and has been since 1876, a large balance of trade in favor of the United States in its dealings with foreign countries. How absurd, then, to assume that those countries could possibly dictate the charactor of our circulating medium? If we had large balances to pay instead of to re ceive, there might be some ground for advancing such a theory. But as the balance of trade is and has been largely in our favor, we are peculiarly master of the situation, and we could force silver to par if we desired to do so far more readily than greenbacks were brought up to an equality with gold. The telegrams say that Senator John P. Jones has can vassed the United States Senate and says that there is a large majority in favor of legislation favorable to silver, and that the vote on a teat question will stand 50 to 34. It ia reasonable to suppose that, in the House, the sentiment will be even more favorable. i The circular of Henry Clews & Co., dated January 13th, tbe last which has reached this Coast, says: "Easier "money here relieved the London money market somewhat; though the] "Bank of England gained about three thousand pounds during the "week. The London money market "However, is likely to continue on the "basis of high rates, the expactation be "ing that gold will ahortlv go to South "America. The Bank of France ia the "only foreign institution holding an im "portant surplus of gold." Here is a highly significant circum stance. France has Bteadily adhered to the double standard, and yet we see that while in England gold is scarce, the bi metallic country has plenty of gold coin. There could not possibly be a more com plete answer to the twaddle about the free circulation of silver making gold scarce than this statement of facts, which we have reproduced from the highest financial authority in the United States. In addition, it is a notorious cir camstance that, ten years after France had paid Germany an indemnity of five thousand millions of franca in gold coin, on the strength of which Germany demon etizsd silver, France had it nearly all back. The efforts to prevent the United States from adopting a sound financial policy are as fallacious aa they are dee perate. It is to be hoped that a happier day is about to dawn for our mines, and that silver will regain its old status. The full text of Secretary Windom's silver bill, which received the approval of the Preaident at the Cabinet meeting last Friday, is printed in the Herald thia morning. It embodies the ideas promulgated in the Secretary's late an nual report, which have already been more or lees commented upon by this journal, and of which we may have more to say in the future. It will be noticed by our dispatches that several more prominent peoplgat the East have died of la grippe, or dis eases incident thereto, among them be ing Solicitor General Chapman, of the United States Supreme Court at Wash ington. The Atlantic and Pacific is said to be enjoying a boom in its passenger busi ness, owing to the blockade of the Cen tral and Northern lines. Thus again are the advantages of the Southern route exemplified. EGYPT'S FORMER KHEDIVE. Row Ismail Pasha Spent 50,000,000 lv the Suez Canal festivities. It reads like a passage from a comic opera, says the London Spectator, when we find that in the beginning of 1860 •' business was practically suspended in nearly all the Government offices in order that those of their staffs who knew French might be employed in translating the 'G:il Oreve,' the 'Belle Helene,' the 'Mariee de Mardi Gras,' and other chefs d'oeuvres of Offenbach into Arabic for the use of the harem ladies." In May the Khedive gave a grand ball to celebrate bis accession. One of tbe items of expenditure on this occasion v. as the throwing of a temporary bridge across the Nile at a cost of £3,000. And then in November came the crowning splendor of the opening of the canal. The, Empress of France, the Emperor oft Austria, and the Crown Prince of Prus sia were the most notable of the guests; but there was a multitude—amount ing, it is said, to thousands—of less distinguished persons, who were enter tained in a most extravagant style, £4 per head being paid for the hotel bill of each guest at the canal Bnd £2 12s at Cairo. The whole expenditure of the fetes came to considerably more than £1,000,000. Even literature got some pickings out of this gorgeous outlay, the author of an official history of the cere mony being paid £1.000 for "copy." Doubtless Ismail fancied that "by this costly outlay he was build ing up an absolutely independ ent throne. If so it must have been a grievous disappointment when he had to sell to the Porte his new iron-ciadp, especially precious symbols of independ ent power. Year after year things went on, the financial situation growing steadily worse and worse. The great Disraeli coup of purchasing the Khe dive's canal shares set him on his legs for a time, but the end was ap proaching. In 1879, after a reign of sixteen years, the final blow was delivered. England and France agreed to demand hia resignation. He was not unequal to the situation. He made very good terms for himself, selected his chief favorites from his harem, put their jewelry into the most portable shape, stripped hia palace .of everything that waa valuable—the plate was estimated at £800,000 — and then received the irade that appointed Tewfik his succeasor with philosophic resignation, "liaising TewtikV hand to his lip». ho said: 'I salute my Effendina.' He then kissed him on both cheeks, and merely adding tbe bare expression of hope that he would be more fortunate than his father had been, with a slight obeiaance retired into the adjoining harem." Four days afterward, June 30th. he left Egypt, it may now be said with certainry, for ever. Napoleon's Attempts to Smoke. Napoleon I, the great Emperor of France, never could smoke, although when in Egypt he several times at tempted to do so in order to please the neople. On one occasion, when the Persian ambassador presented to him, on behalf of the Shah, a very valuable and gorgeous pipe, "all diamonds and rare jewels," Napoleon's attendant filled the pipe, and a light was applied, bnt in the way the Emperor went to work no smoke would have appeared until dooms day. He merely opened and shut his lips in the energetic manner of a mechanical figure. The attendant ven tured to observe that his Majesty was not exactly proceeding in the usual manner, and showed him the correct way in which to manage his pipe of peace. But the inapt pupil persistently returned to his bad imitation of yawning, until tired and vexed with repeated failures he at last desisted, saying: "Constant, do you light the pipe; I cannot." So said, so done, and we are informed that the pipe was returned to him with the tobacco burning at a furious rate and a tremen dous amount of smoke. Soon veiled in vapor the unfortunate Napoleon was again in difficulty; the smoke, which he did not know how to get rid of, went down his throat, and up out through his eyes and nose. As soon as he regained breath he gasped tbe words: "Take it away! What an infection I What pigs they must be who smoke! I am bo ill." And ill we are told be was for come considerable time, and he re nounced for evermore the soothing weed. PERSONS AND THINGS. Death of Solicitor-General Chapman. OTHER VICTIMS OF LA GRIPPE, Baron Yon Pultkamer's Son Sick in JJew York-Dude Williams Jailed In Kansas. Associated Press Dispatches to the Hbrald. Washington, January 19.—Solicitor- Goneral Orlow W. Chapman, of New York, died tbis morning at hia house in this city of pneumonia. His death, following so closely after that of Walker Blame, has produced a deep impression of sorrow here. His end was peaceful, and he passed away surrounded by his wife, Attorney-Gen eral Miller, who had b9en with him almost constantly during hia illness, Mrs. Miller and Dr. Johnson, the at tending physician. He recovered from an attack of la grippe and insisted npon immediately resuming hie duties at his cffice.

The funeral services will be held here at the late residence of the deceased, to morrow, and will be attended by the President, members of the Cabinet, and justices of tbe Supreme Court. The remains will be taken to his home at BinghamptoD, New York, for interment. Chapman waa about 06 years of age, and a long time a resident of Binghamp toD, where he bore an excellent reputa tion aa a lawyer. He waa appointed Solicitor-General last May, after the ad journment of the Supreme Court, but in a comparatively short time he won high estimation as a lawyer and man in the minds of the members of the Supreme Court and bar.

A Patient of High Degree |„ , ue New York Hospital. New Yokk, January 19 —Under a pil low in a cot in Bellevue Hospital ia a tiny iron croaa attached to a gold chain, and the occupant of the cot will be, if he ilivea, one day Baron Robert Yon Pult tamer. The crcas, the higheet deco ration for valor in the gift of the German Empire, waa given him with a larger croaa for a breast deco ration, for conspicuous bravery on the bloody field of Gravelotte where Le was an Ensign under Yon Papein, of the Prussian Grenadier guards. Yon Pult kamer came to Now York as steward of the ship Ivy from San Francisco, a few years ago. He is the son of Herr Yon Pultkamer, Vice President of the Prussian Council of Ministers and Minister of the Interior, who was deposed by the present Kaiser in June, 1888, to the delight of the Radicals. He waa a dashing young officer, with ample means and a future. He will not say how he became estranged from his family, but Wednesday night an ambulance took him to the hospital from Hudson stroet, and when he thought he waa dy ing from a hemorrhage of the lungs, he revealed his identity. He now regrets it, but does not deny that he ia the Baron'a son. He is a man of Herculean mold with strikmgly stern features. His conversation stamps him as a man of education, while hia horny hands, deformed by hard work in the voyage round the Horn, tell of toil and privation. The doctors say if he is not worried and escapes bronchitis and pneumonia, he may recover, but he will never be a strong man again. OKLAHOMA ttEPCHCICANS.
