''THE OFFICIAL CITY PAPER.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1893.
A PLEASANT OUTLOOK.
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

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

AMUSEMENTS.
Grand Opera House — Edgewood

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

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.

JUDGE WADE REFUSES A NEW TRIAL.
An Accident Where a Railroad
Was Not Responsible.
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.

R. FRANK WARNER'S TRIAL.
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.
