V 'Every drop of rain which has fallen (tin Southern California duriDg the past '■three days is a benison from the GodB; tor, rather, it is a most gracious dispen sation of Providence. During the season f of' 1891-92 the rainfall was not only "scant but it was attended by very many l inopportune circumstances. There were kthree days of an excessively high tem perature coincident with a scant precip itation that were highly disastrous to >the corn crop, especially on the mesa hands. Now everything is propitious. *Tbe rains have come in great abundance and they put in their appearance ex actly at the right time. In anticipation of a generous down pour the farmers have taken advantage ,of the early and successive rains, and ran area ha* been put in grain that has f never heretofore been paralleled in this | section. This is in an especial manner ! gratifying to the farmers in San Bernar idino and Loa Angeles counties and in ;the northern portion of San Diego coun tty. Extensive areas in the neighbor •hooj of Ferris, San Jacinto and Banning ►will thiß season Bignalize themselves by ( phenomenal crops of the cereals. * ' But the crops of the cereals, while im .portant, are by no means the leading in ■tereßt of Southern California. For years '.past the planting of the citrus and tho "deciduous fruits has been absorbing a larger and larger area of our best lands. •The profits of both under an intelligent system will be great, and permanently 'great. In the east, for some reason JsMjU, ia natu.udereta.Dd, titer* or here, many of the deciduous varieties of fruit are practically disappearing. In exten sive sections it is becoming hard to raise a peach. In Missouri the peach orchards are practically disappearing. They die after a few years. Their yield ie so insignificant and so capricious that there is no longer any profit in raising them. The frequent failure of the Del aware peach orchards ia beginning to attract attention. For the past twelve .years the eastern states have found it impossible-to raise a plum. The fruit «eemß to reach the maturing point, when the curculio, or some other pest, ? pierces the partially matured fruit, and tit falls to the ground. The apple, even, iie menaced by insect pests; and, when rßtored in the cellars for winter use, appleß are drawn out worm eaten and scarcely available. These facts seem to point out Califor nia aa the final recourse f:r the decidu jous fruits. This Btate, especially in the southern counties, seems to be remark ably free from these eastern pests, and it ought to be our sedulous endeavor to |keepitfree. The plums raised in Loa Angeles county are of euch generous isize, flavor and weight ub to suggest a miracle of nature. Our pears and ipeaches are exceptionally fine. For canning purposes they excel anything on tbe footstool. There are always notable features in horticulture, both in the success of the cultivation and in the deaiand which springs up for BpeeialNstaples. Such an incident is connected with the cultiva tion of the apricot, which ia un usually fine in Los Angelea and adjoining counties. This is a remark ably delicate fruit iv most climates, and the regions over the whole world iv which it can be successfully cultivated are remarkably few. Some years ago the commissariat of the British army included canned apricots in the regimen of the land forces, and they were found ■o healthful and delicious that they were also embraced in the requisitions of the navy. The taste communicated itself to the British people, and spread to the continent. Today the dornaud for canned and dried apricots is so pro nounced in Europe that a carefully tended apricot orchard is sure to yield its owner a profit of $150 per acre a year. That, or upwards, is the return of a mature orchard of these trees. At the beginning of this article we stated that we Buffered from two serious disabilities last year. In addition to the lack of rainfall, there was a memor able and lamentable succession of nortli windß. The injury resultant from these winds was great and far reaching. Eight inches of rainfall properly distributed are ample for all crop and orchard pur poses in Los Angeles county for a single leason. But last year we had neither a pleasant distribution of, nor our usual equable weather after the rains. "North ers," fierce and furious, were the or der of the day and of the night. This year the rains have come just in the sick of time', and they have been fol lowed by genial and growing weather, (f oar farmers and horticulturists had had the ordering both of wind and weather they could not have been better pleased. The citrus industry, trhich will always remain one of our leading interests, never looked better tban today. The talk about a restricted market for oranges is all nonsense. It will probably be impossible to preserve, for a long time, the extravagant prices for oranges and lemons wbich have pre vailed for some years, but tine fruit will always command fancy, and good fruit remunerative, prices. For months past the Herald has been informing its readers that they will have to face a golden year. They may not like it, but it is upon them. Nature clearly designs to play the cornucopia act on this section, and to discharge upon it benefactions at a rate so rapid and resistless aa to discount, in the op posite line, the Pandora'B box of old. And we are inclined to think that we can stand it. People are not easily en nuye9 of good fortune. THE ART OF HOW NOT TO DO IT. The Herald has for a long time been smitten with the impression that the city of Los Angeles is being governed (or misgoverned, as the reader may please himself), too much ; and that we are living in an era when people have ceased to regard public office as a public trust, beyond what money there is in it. It reduced itself down to the proposition ot the valiant General Ollendorff, in the Baggar Student, when he says: "After all, the whole civilized world tnoveß at the meution of two little words—how much?" For a long time it had been an open secret that, uuder Republican rule, the work of sidewalking the more densely populated streets of Los Angeles was be ing done in a most outrageously slov enly and negligent manner, and yet re ceiving the apptoval of the officer to whose eurvoillance such work was dele gated by law. Just prior to the recent municipal election, the Hurald becam-) so strongly fortified with proofs to that effect that it did not hesitate to charge Street Superintendent Hutchinson witli corruptly accepting work that he knew to be insufficiently performed and in to tal contravention aud neglect of the specifications under which the contracts ior such work was let. Mr. Hutchin son's failure to clear himself of Euch imputations cost him the loss of his office, and Mr. Watson was elected to fill hiß place. Now mark the difference between a man who suffers himself to become the venal tool of "shoddy" contractors and a man who regards his official oath with some degree of sanctity and respect. One week ago yesterday Mr. Watson, the nowly inducted superintendent. made a report to the city council in which he refused to audit and allow the claims of Pope and Smith, contractors to whom had been awarded the sidewalk ing and paving of Second streot, be-_ tween Alameda and Wolfskili, on the ground that su-.-h work had not been done according to spaciticatiou. The contractors yesterday appealed to the council from the decision of Superin tendent Watson, and, in the hope of in fluencing some one of the four Demo crats over to their side, employed Sena tor-elect White as their counsel. The Citizens' Rsforui league, headed by one Griffith, himself a large tax payer, and further backed up by T. D. Stinson, L. .I.Rose and other substantial men, got hold of this case through the instrumentality of J. M. Davies, an old resident and large property owner on the Btreat .in question. This gentle man's share of the cost of that street work is nearly $10,000; and when he pays out that amount of money he naturally demands an equivalent Mr. Davies examined the paving and found it done in a slovenly manner. Mind, this work was don 9 before Watson becamo street superintendent. On the day the board of public works visited this street for examination, Mr. Davies called the attention of ths chair man (Mr. Strohm) to the sloveuly way in which thie work had been done. Mr. Strohm said the piece of cement which Davies held in his hand was not a fair sample. Davies then <?ot an iron crow bar with which to sound the sidewalk in front of his property and Mr. Strnhm threatened to havo him arrested if he made a hole- in a pavement for which he waa paying $10,000. Mr. Davies then laid the matter before the taxpayers' re tort* leHgue. Mr. Griffith took the bull by the homo and got au expert to examine the work. The expert reported that the top surface (one inch) had only one-sixth of cement to rive-sixths of sand, instead of mixed in equal parts; and that tbe cement base of the walk, instead of being one-fifth cement, had barely one twentieth. When this matter came up yesterday au appeal from the contractors to the council as against .Superintendent Watson, the Republican majority in the council refused to hear the expert's re port read aud also denied a reading of the memorial prepared by the taxpay ers' uuion, bearing on the case. "Straws show which way the wind blows," but the shoddy street coatraciorß, who have had a picnic under the Hutchinson ad ministration, might as weil awake to a realizing sense ot the fact that thoy are now having to deal with a different sort of man. Tnu British foreign office lias ordered the tiling of a formal protest at Wash ington against the action of United States Minister Stevens at Honolulu in landing marines from the Boston at the time of the Hawaiian revolution. Meanwhile annexation Bentiment con tinues to grow apace, there being a practical unanimity in favor of it at the capital. ' Assemblyman Bkktz waa let off eaay yesterday when brought before the bar of the house for maligning Farmer Kerns. By an almost unanimous vote he was sentenced to be suspended for one week and reprimanded by the speaker. ____________ The house yesterday passed the senate bill to refer the claim of Mrs. Jeßaie Benton Fremont to property in Pan Francisco bay to the court of claims for , settlement. The many friends and ad LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 31, 1H93. mirsrs of tbe old pathfinder's daughter will be glad to hear this, and will hope that tho court may decide in her favor. SOCIETY. With universal regret wae the final number danced at the Woman's Ex change party in Armory hall last night. This will be the last event of the kind before Lent. In spite of the rain there were fully 50 couples present and the costumes oi the ladies were as handsome as on any occasion when the weather has not been so inclement. What was deficient in numQers was compensated for in the enjoyment of those who attended. The floor was comfortably filled, which con tributed in no small degree to the pleas ure of the dancers. Lowinaky'a orchestra was in attend ance, and if possible exceeded its accus tomed excellent playing. Tue time, so essential to good dance music, was per fect, while the full expression was given to every selection. Refreshments were served during the intermission of dancing. The party was concluded at 12 o'clock. The committees were: Chairman, Mrs. C. H. Capen; host and hostess, Maj ir and Mrs. Elderkin ; committee ou hos pitality, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ellis, Mr. arid Mrs. J. Brent Banning, Dr. and Mrs. Samuel 8. Salabury, Mr. and Mrß. C. C. Carpenter. Mr. and lira. Asa D. Childress, Mr. and Mrs. John 8. Park; floor committee, Mr. F. M. Xotman, Mr. Marion Wigmore. Mr. Joseph G. Easton, Mr. Wm. M. Garland, Mr. James Canby and Mr. George W. Parßous. Colonel Lee and family will move Feb ruary let, from their piesent residence, the %olano property on bouth Main street, to Bunker Hill avenue near Sec ond street. Mrs. Van Nuys held a reception last evening at her residence, corner Spring and Seventh streets. Last night's meeting of the S. M. club, in Ludlam hall, was postponed for two weeks. AMUSEMENTS. Grand Opera House — Edgewood Folkß as presented by Alba Heywood and his company last night, appeared to please the audience immensely. Mr. Heywood displays great versatility and ability in makeup. Middaugh'a Musical Comedy company are to appear Friday evening, February 3d, in a refined musical comedy entitled Our German Ward The company is a strong one and is augmented by Mid daugh'a gold band and a Buperb or chestra. The Kansas City Journal says: "A Turkish Bath opened at the Gallis yes terday afternoon to a crowded house. A Turkish Bath is gotten up solely for the purpose of displaying good specialties. It is barren of a plot, and the only refer ence to a 'bath' is a sign board in the first act. It begins with an attempt ata connected story, but the connection is snddenly broken in the second act and the thread lost in the specialties that follow. In the second act Miss Heath is given full opportunity to display her talents as a clever littie actrees. In her part she imitates a child to perfection, and is the life and boul of the play. Her singing and dancing won her repeated encores, and when she sang tho old fa vorite, Won'; You Coma Out and Play ? she received thunderous applause. In the recall she sang Listen to My Tale of Woe in a delightful manner." Miss Heath and ber company are to appear at the Grand February 7th. HEADQUARTERS. Three Officers Wanted for tho Inaugura tion—Soldiers for Honolulu. Lieutenants Collins, Baker and Mc- Mahon have received notice from Wash ington, D. 0., signed by Colonel Corbin, sdjutant-g3neral of the inaugural pa rade, that they bad been appointed as aids-da camp on the staff oi Gen. M. J. McMahon in the inangural parade. They are requested to communicate with the officials at Washington as to whether or not they will attend. All of the gentlemen BUted yesterday that while they desired to do so, they did not think they would be able to see Mr. Cleveland inaugurated. Fjuj- seedy looking men entered Lieu tenant Holly's office yesterday and in quired for the recruiting officer. Lieu tenant Holly whs the gentleman they wanted. "AH right then, mister, beg your pardou, general; we want to enlist for service in Honolulu," said the spokesman. "What's that?" asked Lieutenant Holly. "We have no troops there." "We knows that, sir, but you se«B we Heen by the morning papers that Uncle Sam was liable to aunex these islands, co we thought you would need some men to go over there to help do it, so we come up to enlist," spoke up the toughest looking one of the quartette. "I don't think we will need you for several weeks at least," remarked Lieu tenant Holly, in a eorrowlul tone of voice. "Do wo, lieutenant?" Here turning to Lieutenant Collins, who oc cupies the same office. "Certainly not before that time," replied that gentle man. "However, you four gentlemen may leave your addresses, so we can Bend to your hotels for you when we start the enlistment," said Lieutonant Holly to nis rather crestfallen, belliger ently-inclined visitors. "Well, I gueeß we'll call again," re plied the four, in chorus, and together they retired to the cold, cruel world out aids of the Bryson-Bonebrake block. Another View of the Case. An article appeared in the Hkrai.d a few days ago entitled, A Judicial Blun der. The information was based on a statement made by a Mr. Sturgis. E. E. Salyer was very properly fined $10 in the police court for kicking a boy named Sturgis. The evidence showed that the conductor followed the boy after he had left the car and then kicked him. The evidence also showed that the boy did not get on the car apparently with the intention of paying his fare, but that he ran to the other side of the car when the conductor approached, and finally jumped off. The boy pleaded guilty to jumping off the car while in motion, and was fined $3, merely as a lesson. The fine was suspended during the boy's good be havior.

Slow Progress iv the Cable Road Foreclosure Suit. Trial of the Alleged Santa Fe Train AYrecker—Judge Ross Adjourns Dls Court in Respect to James G. Rlalue. In the case of Cogswell vs. The Loa Angeles, Pasadena and Glendale Railway company, Judge Wade yesterday denied a motion for a new trial in accordance with the following brief opinion: The law governing thia caae cannot be better expressed than in the language of Justice McKinstry at the conclusion of the opinion in Aahton vs. Nolan, 63 (Jal., 200-75. ". . . But when a con tract provides for doing a thing which may be, and generally is; done in a law ful manner, and is silent as to the mode oi doing it, the contract is to be con strued as requiring it to be done in a lawful manner. As the injury waa caused by the contractors while doing work which, it must be aeßumed, could have been done without causing it, and the contractor had agreed bj to do it, the injury waß done in violation of his contract. The defeudant was entitled to a charge to the jury that she was not liable if the damages were produced by the act of an independent contractor or hisseivant." This is a fair summary of the law as it is settled by our supreme court upon the question at issue on this motion, and it tits the facts of the case at bar in such a mannur as to render it unneces sary to consult tbe decisions of courts in other jurisdictions. The cause of the injury m this case waß a failure of the contractor or his servants to place danger signals near the excavations Which they were making. There is no evidence that Buch failure was in pursu ance ol anything in the contract. There is no evidence tending to show that the excavation itself, as provided for in the contract, was calculated to become a nuisance. Indeed, a portion of the con tract is in evidence for any purpose. The motion for a new trial should be de nied, and it is co ordered. The case waa one in which the plaint iff suffered an accident by a carriage being overturned in an excavation ou the line of the railroad. Upon the trial of tho case a non-puit was granted. THE CABLE RAILROAD CASE. Blow Progress of the Foreclosure Suit Before Judge Van Djke . The foreclosure suit of the Illinois Trust and Savings bank of Chicago va. the Pacific Railway company was on trial again yesterday before Judge Van Dyke in department No. 4 of the super ior court, and did not gather much head way aa far aB the defense is concerned. Saturday afternoon Jndge W, P. Gardi ner announced the ua<e closed on the part of the plamtiff, but there are such a multiplicity of interests in the case fhat yesterday witnesses were recalled aud additional documentary testimony was read, and it was not entirely certain when the adjournment for the day was taken but that there would be more evi dence today on the fide of the plain'iff. The general nature of the testimony of the plaintiff yesterday was simply additional facts in regard to the making of the trust deed which the plaintiff is seeking to foreclose, and the status of the bonds issued and sold under that trust deed. Both Receiver Crank anil Superintendent Aikin were recalled aud gave additional evidence bearing upon these matters. A supplementary matter was inter jected into the proceedings by the appli cation of the Los Angeles national bans through its counsel, Judge Hunsaker, for leave to corns in and join Receiver Crank in the case. The court granted the application upon the proviso that the proceedings be not delayed thereby. In the afternoon Attorney-General Hart, on behalf of his clients, the exe cutors of the Joshua Hcndy estate, made a brief statement of his objections to tbe foreclosure of the mortgage, claiming that it was not properly executed. The attorney-general has been more active with objections than any of the other attorneys in the case, and fought very hard during the after noon to prevent tbe admission of oar tain resolutions, passed in Chicago by tha cable c irnpany, authorizing the giv ing of the trust deed and the issue of bonds, but the court overruled his ob jections. The documents were present ed by VV. Burt Smith of Chicago, who was present when they were passed, and testified positively as to their pas sage, and as to the signature of Presi dent C. B. H ilmes to the resolutions, oi which the documents presented were certified copies. It is hard, the attorneys iv the cafie say, to tell how long it will Ir.et. It is expected that tbe big fight in tho trial will come upon the questions involved in the ißsue of receivers' certificates by Receiver Crank uuder the authority of Judge Wade of the superior court. Although the interests involved are so large the trial of the case ia not marked with much of public interest. It turns upon dry legal points and even the finesse of the attorneys is not very apparent upon the surface. In fact so prosy did it seem yesterday that ono of the attorneys fell asleep and nearly broke his neck in his unconscious efforts to prevent his head from falling clear back over his low backed chair. The case will be resumed this morning at 10 o'clock. W * DELICIOUS w Flavoring NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS.

I he Jnry to Be Instructed at Thll Morn ing's Sessiou or Conrt. The trial of E. Frank Warner, the man charged with wrecking a train on the Santa Fe railroad near Duarte a few months ago, was nearly finished yester day in Judge Smith's court. The prosecution did not cloße its case until afternoon. The witnesses put on by Deputy District Attorney Dupuy during the morning were George T. Ins ley, S. T Phillips, Charles C. Barker and W. 11. Russell, ex-jailer. The new testimony introduced was embraced in the examination of Charleß Barker, a boy, and ex-Jailer Russell The boy Barker stated that he heard Warner say to some one that he had rolled the big stone on the track which wrecked the traiD. Ex-Jailer Rueaell teetified that the defendant made a similar admission to him while he waß iv the county jail. The defense was not prolonged. It consisted merely of character witnesses, W. C. Brumingen, S. Taylor, J. W. Su heiland and T. M. Duggan being ex amined. The aubstance of their testi mony was that they did not know any thing against the defendant except that he was a hard drinker. The case was submitted by the de fendant's counsel, Hugh J. Crawford, without argument. Mr. Dupuy made 'an argument on behalf of the prosecu tion and then, before the instructiona were given, th i adjournment for the day waa taken by Judge Smith. She Brooded for Her Husband. Mrs. Carrie Wilson waa examined for insanity Judge Clark and Doctorß W. G. Cochran and R. Wernigk, and committed to the insane asylum at Stockton. Mrs, Wilson is 32 years of age, and came from Indiana three years ago. She haß been mental ly unbalanced for a year paßt. She has suicidal tendencies, having threatened to kill herself with a knife, and also her siatera' familiea. On one occasion ahe drank some perfumery, thinking it was poison, and haß a delusion almost every day that on the next day ahe is going to get married. She is a widow with one child 10 years old. The cause of her insanity is brooding over the death of her husband. In Respect to James G. Blaine. Yesterday morning when United States court convened Ju-lge E. M. Ross announced that out of respect to tbe deceased statesman, James G. Blaine, the United States circuit and district courts would be adjourned until this morniog. Court Notes. Judge Wade yesterday referred to the commissioners the application of J. R. Rush for admission to practice in tbe superior court. In Judge Shaw's court yesterday in the foreclosure suit of Dan Freeman vs. Mucker et al., for foreclosure of a land contract for "ertain lots at Inglewood, an interlocutory decree was granted by the court. Judge Van Dyke yesterday granted the motion in the matter of the petition of the Glendora irrigation district for the striking out of portions of the an swer of the Glendora Water company. R. V. Hanna, who was shot in the arm several days ago while burglarizing a house at Pomona, came before Judge Smith yesterday morning, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years at San Quentirt. The second trial of Charles Peterson, accused of receiving stolen property, was set by Judge Smith yesterday for February 15th. The demurrers in the case of Claud L. Hill, charged with embezzlement, were overruled by Judge Smith yester day, aud his time for pleading was con tinued to February 3J. Judge Smith yesterday granted a mo tion to fix bail for George H. Miles, charged with the murder of George Mil ler, and fixed the bail at $8000. The court then transferred the case to Judge McKinley's department to go upon the trial calendar to be set. The cases of Behlow vs. Tonnison and Tonnisou vs. Behlow, a controversy over the construction of a house, wore yes terday afternoon submitted to Judge Oiark, after a trial of two days. New Suit Filed. Among the documents filed yesterday in the office of the couuty clerk were the following: Petition of H. P. Lantz for letters of administration upon the estate of Lizet la A. D.
