That old-time Democratic warhorse, ex-Senator William A. Conn, is paying Los Angeles a visit. Though still some what disabled from an accident which happened to him some years ago, he still retains the mental vigor and force of character which made him a man of mark for such a long period ?n Southern California. That people from abroad appreciate the attractive openings which exist in ■ fenoh large measure for profitable invest ment in Southern California lands is shown by the fict that between two issues of tbe Ontario Record upwards of $100,000 worth of property was sold in that neighborhood. As a matter of fact, lands are celling there for higher figures than prevailed during the boom, and they are richly worth the money. That there is a good deal of latent public spirit in Los Angeles is shown by the rapidly-increasing membership and vigor of the Chamber of Commerce. That body is now in a very commanding portion for good. Its permanent ex hibit in its new quarters in the Mott building is being arranged with good taste and judgment and will be replete with interest to persons from abroad who desire to know something of the range of the resources of Los Angeles county The membership of the Chamber should be increased to a thousand at least. This would enable it to do a world of good. There are indications on every hand that the partial stagnation which has prevailed on all hands in Los Angelei county is about to be succeeded by an era of decided activity. During the past winter great numbers of people from every State in the Union have visi-e Los Angeles, and the impulse to invest is strong with most of them. There was a considerable Danver contingent amongst tbem, and $100,000 has recently gone into the Gahuenga valley, placed there by Denveritea. Toe other day a Tacoma capitalist critically inspected the San Gabriel valley, and announced his inten tion to return to the North, close up hie affairs and invest hia shekels in Loa An geles county. These are bnt straws which show which way the wind is blow ing. The Finance Committee of the Coun cil yesterday concluded to keep its action as to whether or no the city should pur chase a safe secret. It is understood, however, that the sentiment in that body is not favorable to the Mayor's position. The average Los Angeles citizen is dis posed to look with anything but favor on the inauguration of a Star Chamber on a small scale in the municipal affairs of Los Angeies. The whole matter will come up in the regular meeting of the Council Monday, and it is said that there is blood on the face of the moon. Tne City Attorney holds that tbe municipal treasury is safe in any event, as a l> jii i has been furnished to indemnify it if the decision in the injunction suit should be adverse to the Ring. There is a universal feeling in this city, however, that a prin ciple is involved, and that the Council itself should order a compliance with the' plain intent and even latter of the law Doubtless on Monday that body wil' show its sense of this public sentiment. The course of President Manvel all over this Southern country has baeu marked by unstinted praises of the late Citrus Fair held in this city, and of th > country which could produce such au exhibit. The Santa Fe Railway Com pany, with its running mate, the Atlantic <Sc Pacific, can ba of immense service in settling up Southern California, and fir utmost energies of thaae corporations will be directed towards that end. It must be borne in mind that tho territory adapted to producing tne oranga in per fection is very limited in extent all over the world, and particularly so in the United States. Even more limited are the lands which can grow not only the citrus fruits but the deciduous as well, and nearly every product of earth, in cluding the cereals, the pomegranate ami the storied fruits of the scriptural and classical narratives. The same impres sion which the President of the Santa Fe road carried away with him has been created in the breasts of thousands who were called to Los Angeles during the late Citrus Fair. The cheapest real estate on the Pacific Coast just now, relatively speaking, is in Los Angelas county. Great tracts of the richest vineyard and orange lands on the footstool can be bought n the immediare neighborhood of this city for less than half the price asked for less desirable lands in Fresno county, and yet Los An geles is a large city, with a commanding geographical position, railway ramifica tions not approached by more than half a doz m cities in the United States, and with three or four roadsteads, which are rapidly being made serviceable harbors, thus giviog this county the advantage of that commercial highway of all ages, the ocean. We do not wish to be understood as intimating that the Fresno lands are held at too high a figure. Wnat we aim to convey is that the bargain-hunter can now find in the ranch properties of Los Angeles county his real estate El Dorado. There is doubled money in the next two years in laud purchased at any point of the compass within twenty miles of the «ity of Lo* Angeles. .^^^ Tflß LOS A.JSGELKB DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MORNiM, MARCH 22, 1890. Real Work at Last. The Chamber of Commerce, at ita meeting yesterday, took strong and sen sible ground, and if the plan outlined there is followed np Boathern California will at last be fitly represented at the East, and an intelligent direction will be given to the tide of immigration that can ( be readily influenced to settle in Southern California. The generous offer of Presi dent Manvel, of the Santa Ft' Railway j Company, was thoroughly discussed. The Hhbald has frequently referred to this railway magnate's liberal proffer, which embodies elegant and commodious accommodations in the Rialto building in Chicago for an exhibit of the products of Southern California; the free transpor tation thither of such articles as our people deem it fit to send; and the pas sage, free of cost, of such persons as may be deputed to take charge of the enter prise. Mr. Manvel's idea is that this should be distinctively a Southern Cal ifornia display, and that it should be labeled as such, leaving out the names of the localities. There is wisdom in this snggestion. Quite a large number of our representative citizens were present at. the melting yesterday afternoon, and an excellent spirit was manifested. Mr. D. Freeman, of the Centinela, thought that we should have an exhibit both in New York and Chicago, and was of opinion that the 6cheme properly carried out would cost from $1,200 to $1,500 a] month. He volunteered to contribute i $40 a month towards the movement. Other members agreed that there ought to be two Eastern exhibits; all were in favr r of one at Chicago, and others pre ferred Boston and Minneapolis or Mil waukee to New York. Hon. E. F. Spence professed his willingness to con tribute $500 a year for two years to help the plan along. M. L. Wicks, Esq , came to the front with a tender of $20 a month. It is calculated that Los An geles's share of the sum to be raised, it the project is carried out on the scale suggested by Mr. Freeman, would be $800 or $900 monthly, the rest of the $1,500 being contributed by the adjoin ing counties. We have here at la»t a proposition which will place Loa Angeles b< fore the people of tbe East in an attractive and telling manner, and tbe Herald heartily hopes that it will be carried out on a thorough scale. It is a capital sign of the times to see our capitalists buckling down to ihe work in earnest. A Journal Goen Wrong. It is a sad thing for Los Angeles that it fails to secure the approval of tbe New York Dramatic News. That journal sajs that this oity is absolutely the worst show town in the United Btates. There is no qualification in this sweeping judg ment. Like most people who write ex cathedra the editor of the News does not know what he is talking about. When a show is worth anything its reception in Los Angeles is in nearly all cases appre i ciative and satisfactory from a pecuniary . point of view Tbe National Opera Com pany played in this city to the largest audiences it secured anywhere, and the business for the week was the largest ever recorded in its career. Mr. Booth, b mm a Abbott, and all combinations of merit, always draw largely here. Los Angeles is the only town of its sirs that Patti ever honored, and her engagement was highly successful pecuniarily. Dur ing the recent Gilmore season the Pavil ion, with a capaci'y for seating over four thousand persons, was crowded at every performance. Du>ing the past winter tbe rains were quite copious, and it is not surprising that amusement-goers declined to wade about in a deluge. Genuine merit always receives a genial and remunerative greeting ■ in the City of the Angels, and the highly successful engagement of Mr. Frederick Warde, the other day, was a ease in point. It is not at all to the discredit of our people that they will ' 'accord no sort of countenance to a "suido" show, and that they sometimes fail to ba responsive to the appeals of the eternal variety and barnstorming humbugs that are a sore trial to the flesh nowadays. The population of this city is largely composed of people who have lived in the principal capitals of Europe and America, and they know what's what to an unusual degree. They are not provincial enough to be taken in and done for by the interminable modern class of artists who, in the good old days, were wont to confine their efforts to raelodeons and to the sand dusted pene tralias of the "Free and Easy" saloons. Without desiring to be censorious, the miscarriage of the Montafio prosecution >esterday shows tbat there is something radically wrong about the District Attor ney's office. There is no question as to ttie loss by the county of the large sum of money whose wrongful appropriation was the basis of the action, but the case seems to have been presented in such a bungling fashion that the jury felt it in cumbent upon them to acquit. All that seems necessary nowadays is to procure the service of able counsel for the de fence and the defeat of justice is assured. The methods of the law would appear to a layman to be specially devised to put chicane and fraud above justice. It is tbe frequent experience of the inability of Courts to insure justice which has popularize ! the rough and ready code kuown as lynch law throughout ex '.ansive regions of the United States.. The Herald is sorry to say that it looks vary much as if an era of shaving county warrants is about to set in. There is, almost in the very beginningcf th<» fincal year, $4,782 in the Road Fund. In the Current Expanse Fund there is $12,000. The drafts on this latter ancount usually run from $12,000 to $15,000 a month. This is a black exhibit, but the latter fund will be increased somewhat from the delinquent tax sales, whic i will be available at the close of this month. There is something very pecu liar in such a system of Saance, and something decidedly oppressive to those who are obliged to submit to having their warrants shaved. It is on all grounds a custom more honored in the breach than in th» observance. HARD TIMES. Agricultural Depression Vis ible Everywhere. THE OPPRESSED RURAL CLASSES. Statistician Dodge Lays the Blame to Overproduction and Speculation. Associated Frees Dispatches to the Herald. Washington, March 21.—The prevail- ing depression in American agriculture is treated by Statistician Dodge in the March report of the Department of Agri culture. The prevalence of low prices is noted, and a feeling of discouragement in rural circles throughout the world is indicated. It has been especially se vere in Great Britain, and is the sub ject of complaint, discussion and official investigation in Germany, France, Italy and other coun tries. It is present in monarchies and republica under divers currencies and economic eyetems, but it is less severe here than in other countries. The main cause of low prices iB referred to tbe inexorable law of supply and demand. Corn and wheat and other staples are cheap because of over production. Immigration has increased the population five millions in ten years. The intercontinental areas have been carved into farms, free to na tives and foreigners, opening millions of acres to cultivation. Dodge save while there is an excess of pruductiou of a few staples like wheat, etc., there are insufficient supplies cf many other necessary products, and a total absence of scores of others which should furnish profitable employment to rural labor. There is a too narrow range of cropping. Diversification is essential to agricultural salvation. There are im ports coßting $240,000,000 per annum of agricultural products, which should ba produced here. These are sugar, ani mals and their products, fibres, fruits and nuts, barley, leaf tobacco and wines. Farmers are suffering for the want of hundreds of millions of dollars that the sweat of their brows and the dextarity of their hands might produce out of raw materials in scores of old and new in dustries. Another serious cause of depression, he says, is the exorbitant share of the farmers' profits taken by middlemen and carriers. The army "f dealers in futures disturb the natural flow of trade, check exportation by a temporary rise to be followed by lower prices and greater fluctuations. Speculators de press prices when the garnors are full, and boom them when the farmers have nothing to sell. At present the couutry is infested with pestilent swarms of non-producers. The curse of specula tion blights and consumes the result of honest industry. .(.villi n tm NEW ¥t»RK. Tne French murderer victimizing Uoiham Hotel men. New Yonk, March 21.—1t is now for the first time positively asserted by, Che police that Eyraud, the French mur derer, has been in this city and stopped at different hotels under various aliases, being finally located for two weeks at the Hotel America. He registered without giving place, under the name of Avraid. About March Sth he ied, owing a $40 board bill and several ten-dollar notes which he had borrowed from guests whose confidence he had won by nis affable manner. He said he was a metchant in Guaymas, Mexico, and spoke the Spanish language bo fluently and was so well versed in business mat ters that no one doubted hia asser tion. About Match Sth he dis appeared, and the proprietors still retain bis trunk, which has since been overhauled by the French detectives and Innpector Byrnes's men, with the hopt> of finding some criminating evidence. Lexers await him at the general post office, and uetectives guard the place night and day in the hope that some one will call to chum tbem who may answer his description, for the letters are ad dressed under various names correspond ing wilh the aliases he has given at dif feient times. His departure is be ieved to have been caused by tho arrival in the city of the French detectives. These detectives have since traced him to Montreal and afterwards to the lied River country on bis way to California or Mexico. The French officers are close on his trail. Tbe New York police per sistently denied that they had an. knowledge of the case, or were working ou it, until today, when Sergeant Bird reluctantly admit ed that Detectives A uncle and Tessaro, both conversant with the French language, were on the Case. ■ 11l II I I INQUIRY. •lore Stories of disorder Aboard tuc Enterprise.

FORTY-SEVEN ROUNDS. McAuliffe and Carroll Put Up a Good Fight. JARROLL FAIRLY KNOCKED OUT. McAuliffe Suffers Most Punishment, but lifts In on Carroll's Mouth at the Right Moment. Associated Press Dispatches to The Herald San Francisco, March 21. —The purse offered by the California Athletic Club for the contest between Jack McAuliffe and Jimmy Carroll, which took place at the California Athletic Club tonight, amounted to $3,000, of which $500 was to go to the loser. In - addition to this sum each principal had posted $5000 on the fight, making the total sum which would fall into the hands of the winner $12,500. As seconds, Carroll selected Martin Mnrphy and Florrie Bennett. McAuliffe announced that Billy Madden and Jack Dampsey would be in his corner. Hiram Cook was selected as referee. Owing to some rumors afloat yesterday that the fight was not to be a genuine one, President Fulda last night informed Carroll and McAuliffe thai if at any time during tbe contest there was any evidence of "faking," tbe fight would be stopped and the men thrown out of the ring. Previous to the contest an effort waß made to pass a resolution instructing the Board ot Directors to arrange a match between Joe McAuliffe and Peter Jack son, but the club decided to leave the matter in the hands of the directors. It was nearly 9 o'clock when the contest ants, accompanied by their seconds, ap peared in the ring. McAuliffi was tbo first to skip over the ropes. Both pugil ists were received with enthusiasm. Tne weights were announced as follows: McAuliffe, 134J2 ; Carroll, 135'i'. Time was called at 9:10. First Round —McAuliffe opened with a rush, but Carroll escaped by dodging. McAuliffe reached Carroll's neck several times with his right before the round closed. Sec mil Round—Carroll opened by a rush and jaobed McAuliffe in the jaw several times. McAuliffe returned a Uut right-hand blow in Carroll's ribs, aud followed it up with a swing on the neck. Carroll countered with a hard left-hander en Mac's jaw. Third Round —Mac led out with his left, catching Carroll under tbe chin. He repeated ibis before Carroll had re covered from tbe first shock, and a clinch followed. Carroll then tried a hard swing, but McAuliffe dodged. Fourth Round—McAuliffe reached Car roll's ear with his ngbt, aud then gave him a vicious upper-cut with his left. McAuliffe made a half-dozen terrific lunges,all of which Carroll escaped until just before the round closed, when he received a sharp rap in the ribs. Iv the fifth round McAuliffe aimed for Carroll's jaw, but received a hard jab ou the mouth, which sent him down on his knees. He rose at once, and several rallies followed. . In the aixth McAuliffe again caught 'Carroll in the jaw with a hard rignt hander. McAuliffe continued to play for his opponent's wind and reached there several times with marvelous rapidity. Seventh Round—McAuliffe continued the same tactics aud landed two more left-hand blows on Carroll's body. In the eighth round there was little done till near the close, when there was a sharp rally, in which Carroll received considerable pounding. Ninth Round —In this round there was another hot rally, in which Carroll brought a little blood from MeAulilfe's forehead. McAuliffe again rushed the fighting. Iv the tenth round McAuliffe lauded on Carroll's ribs sev j ral times, though the blows were not hard. McAuliffe had a narrow escape from a swinging right hander, which just grazed his ear. Eleventh Round—McAuliffe opened the round with a hard left-hander on Carroll's stomach, but received in return a terrific jab in the mouth. Twe'fth Rjuud—This was the hottest ronnd of the fight so far. There was a ■ot rally, followed oy a clinch, in which the men fell heavily to the floor, Mc- Auliffe on top. Carroll rose, and some terrific slogging bt close quarters fol lowed, until both men were very groggy. Carroll scoied a clear knock-Jo*u by landing on McAuliffa's jaw. In the thirteenth round both men fought hard for a knock-out, though very tired. McAuliffe did most of the rush ing, but just before the round closed Carroll gave him a blow on the jaw which almost S9nt him to the fl >or. Fifteenth Round —McAuliffe found Carroll's wind hard just before the roun closed. Carroll lorced matters, caught Mac heavy in the wind and again on the jaw. The latter saved himself from lurther punishment by a clinch. Little was done in the sixteenth. The seventeenth round opened with honors about even. Both men were evidently very tired. The men clinched in the eighteenth, and as they broke away Carroll uppercut McAuliffe viciously and then gave him several right and leit handers which staggered him percep tibly. Nineteenth Round—But little damage was done until just at the close, when Mac reached Carroll's ribs three times, and each time received a sharp counter which staggered him. In the twentieth Mac resumed his punching operations on Carroll's body, with but little effect, however. Carroll feinted several times, but made little effort to lead. Twenty-first Round—Mac landed a hard right-hander on Carroll's jaw, and attempted to follow it up with his left, but Carroll escaped by a clever di.-dge. A moment later, however, McAuliffe reached his neck, and then gave him a left-hand swing in the ribs. In the twenty-second Mac again reached Carroll's neck. The laitar tried to return the blow, but Mac jumped away. Carroll next staggered back from a right-bander. In the twenty-eighth there was some sharp fighting at close quarters, in which McAuliffe had the advantage. He ponnded Carroll about the neck and bod y until the latter staggered under the blows. The next few rounds were generally in McAuliffa's favor. At the thirty-eighth round the men, while not strong, were both in fair condition, and there seemed every prospect that tbe fight would last some time longer. Carroll commenced to pound away at Mac's face and jaw. He reached his mark more than half a dozen times, and Mac was evidently becoming dazed. He struck out weakly, but Carroll would get away safe and come back with another jab in Mac's face, McAuliffe recovered a little in the next ronnd, but in the forty-second Carroll gave him an ugly upper-cut and then planted several more hard ones on his nose and face, causing blood to floW freely and making McAuliffe stagger. In the forty-third round McAuliffe was plainly getting weaker, and a number more blows on his jaw from Carroll's fist did not improve his condition. Carroll continued to gain the advan tage, and in the next three rounds pjunded McAuliffe on the jaw and in the mouth and nose until it seemed the latter would go out every moment. Mc- Auliffe, though very weak, returned the blows when he could, but they seemed to have little 6<fect. . At the opening of the forty-seventh round Carroll etill acted on the aggres sive, but when the round was about over Mac seemed to revive a little. The men were fighting hard at close quarters, though both men were so that they cHild scarcely stand UpoD their feet. Finally Mac's right fist came in contact with Carroll's jaw, and the latter went down. He rose in three or four seconds, and Mac started in to finish hipa, though it was difficult to say which man was the weaker. Mac's face waß well covered with blood, but there was very little on Carroll's. Mac finally caught Carroll in the mouth, and sent him down on the floor with a thump. Ten seconds were counted off, but there was still no movement of his body, and his seconds had to carry him to his cor ner. Mac was declared the victor amid tho enthusiastic cheering oi the specta tors. A Mil l IMi FItISUNGB. Che Iran.nonldora Resort to Peculiar Xaciica. San Francisco, March 21. —The peti tion of Thomas Lirkin, a member of the Moulders' Union, for a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of L. Park, one of the moulders recently brought here from the East, who, the petitioner alleged, was il legally restrained of his liberty by the proprietors of the Risdon Iron Works, was heard today by Judge Levy. Peti tioner maintained that Park was actually imprisoned in the Risdon Iron Works and restrained of his liberty, nnd that the proprietors of the works refused to 'permit him to converse with any of the union men. An affidavit was read, sub* scribed and sworn to by Park. Tue affi davit was addressed to Judge Levy, and in it Park assured the judge that he has never been, nor is he now, restrained of his liberty by the proprietors of the Ris don Iron Works or any other persons. He stated that he was free to do as* he pleased, and was perfectly contented with his surroundings. After consider able discussion, Judge Levy stated that he *ould direct an officer of his court to see Park at the Risdon Iron Work.', and if the latter told the officer that he was satisfied and not restrained of his liberty, he would dismiss the writ without fur ther proceedings.

San Francisco, March 21,-F-Postofnce Inspectors Seyboldt and Irwin and As sistant Postmaster Carr are still enuaeed in an examination of the books cf James 8. Kennedy, Jr., the foreign money or der clerk, who succeeded in embezzling lands entrusted to his charge. His shortage is much more than was at first supposed. Inspector Seyboldt cannot as yet give any definite estimate of its ex tent, although it is said to be at least $10,000 or $12 000. Kennedy has volun teered the information that previous to the Christmas holidays it will be found that he was but little behind in his ac counts, and that it is since then that his peculations have assumed any great pro portion.
