HERE'S SOME GOOD NEWS.
Prof. Koebele's Good Work for Orchardists. Tbe Bed and Black Scale Are Both Doomed. An Interview With the Professor and Quarantine Officer Craw. The Orcus Chalybeus Doing Good Work —The Rhizobius Ventralis at Work on Mr. Kllwood Cooper's Baneh. Professor Koebele end Quarantine Officer Alexander Oraw returned yester day from a visit to Mr. Ellwood Cooper's ranch near Santa Barbara, they having gone there Wednesday of last week to investigate the condition of the Austral ian predaceous insects brought to this country by Professor Koebele over a year ago to prey upon tbe scale pests of Cal ifornia. The visit ot the gentlemen was not or iginally designed to be together. Pro fessor Koebele went at the request of the department of agriculture at Wash ington, of which he is an officer, while while Mr. Craw came down from the state board of horticulture. But meet ing at Mr. Cooper's the investigation wft made in oompany. The result oi tbe examination will be of great importance to horticulturists throughout California, and tbe Hbbald ia enabled to make public the views of the gentlemen upon what they saw. A reporter last evening saw both Pro fessor Koebele and Mr. Craw. Owing to bis position in being obliged to report to the department at Washington, Pro fessor Koebele would not give his views directly for publication at this time but said that he fully agreed with whatever Mr. Craw might say. Mr. Craw, in beginning to talk bngs, could not help referring to the fact that Professor Koebele'* modesty had kept him from appearing much in the news papers, but he could not forbear from paying him a very high tribute for tbe quiet and thorough manner in which he had performed his valuable work of se curing valuable enemies of the scale pests. . , In the first place Mr. Oraw was asked about the orcus chalybeus, or steel blue ladybird, which has lately been causing so much discussion. He stated that he had visited the Kereheval orchard, as Professor Koebele had also, and had found a gratifying increase in the num bers of the ladybird. He was convinced from what he Saw tbat it was only a question of time until there are enough of tbe beetles to suc cessfully prey on the red scale. It has cleaned up the Kereheval orchard won derfully. It is not a rapid breeder, as it has but two generations a year, but Prof. Koebele stated that such was the case when be brought it from Australia. Mr. Craw said there was no doubt about its feeding on tbe red scale, and that in many places where the red scale ap- Cars not to have been touched, it has en eaten ont beneath by tbe ladybird, and only a hollow dead shell has been left. They found no trace of the steel blue ladybird at Mr. Cooper's place. He has no red scale there, and there would be nothing for the chalybeus to feed upon. But tbe most astonishing discovery made by Mr. Craw and Professor Koebele at Mr. Cooper's was with refer ence to three other ladybirds, the foes of the; black scale, but which are also claimed to be foes of all kinds of scale. "The first of these beetles is called,'- - said Mr. Craw, "rhizobius ventralis, or black ladybird. It has propagated marvelously and is cleaning Mr. Coop er's orchards of black scale in magnifi cent fashion. It is the most important discovery since the vedalia cardinalis, and is just as important and valuable as tbe vedalia was. It is a little woolly, black beetle, smaller than the chalybeus ' and is a lively little ladybird. It swarms in Mr. Cooper's orchards by the thousands, and the increase has been only within the past'ftew months. "The first orchard we visited was an olive orchard, one where this ladybird had been placed on 49 trees in the center. The remainder of the orchard was sprayed last year. The ladybirds on the 49 trees cleaned them from black scale, but did not spread to the sprayed trees. The trees were completely black last year with the scale. The trees that were sprayed last year are now quite dirty. I think probably the spraying kept the beetles from spreading. "Tbe next olive orchard we visited ad joined the central one. The ladybirds bad been placed on it, but they had spread to the trees and had practically cleaned all the trees in the orchards. I was delighted and Professor Koebele, I know, was surprised and pleased. "The third orchard visited wah also an olive orchard, where the black ladybird bad been placed, and the trees were practically clean. ''These ladybirds were placed in Mr. Cooper's place in May, 1892, and have done so wonderfully that I do not hesi tate to say that as soon as they are dis tributed they will almost do away with tne black scale, although, of course, none of the beetles are exterminators. "The most we hope to do is to keep the scales from becoming pests. "The black scale has spread along all the coast counties, and while it is not aa destructive aa the red scale it is bad enough and the dirtiest of the scales. "Prof. Koebele believes that the bee tles will also feed on the red, San Joae and other scales in time, as they do in Australia. "But there are two other varieties of ladybirds in Mr. Cooper's place, which have also developed wonderfully. "These are tbe orous Australana which is a brother of the cbalybenor. It is larger than the latter and has six beau tiful orange red spots. This preys on the black and San Jose scale and it is believed will feed on any of the scales. " The other ladybird is the rhizobius debilis, which feeds on the black scale and which Prof. Koebele thinks will also eat the red scale. "These two ladybirds are doing good work in Mr. Cooper's ranch, but not to the extent of the black ladybird, which ia par excellence the worker of tbe trio bo far." Mr. Craw was questioned about what Mr. Cooper proposes in the way of dis tributing the ladybirds and said that thousands can be taken away without making any perceptible decrease in the bwarms upon the trees, When asked if Mr. Cooper would be likely To allow the ladybirds to go into the bands of enemies of the beetle or of Prof. Koebele, be smiled and said that he liasdly thought, so. Mr? Craw said that Mr. Cooper has al ready formulated bis plan. He will be ready to send the ladybirds next month to any place where they are required. There mast, however, be a written application to tbe state board of horti culture from the person wanting a colony. Mr. Ciaw said in conclusion that the resnlt of the examination of Mr. Cooper's place had been eminently eat iafactory, and that the horticulturists would derive great benefit from the Australian bug imported by Prof. Koe bele. He will remain in Southern California for several days in connection with his duties. Prof. Koebele went north last night to inspect come colonies of beetles of various kind* in orchards in the northern part of the state. A NARROW ESCAPE. A Herlnus Acoldent Averted by the Prompt Action of Onicer Shannon. What came very near being a serious accident, probably involving a human life, but for tbe prompt and valiant aotion of Officer Shannon, occurred at the junction of Main and Spring streets about 2:30 yesterday afternoon. Harry Eager, an employo of Jacoby Bros., attempted to board a north-bound cable car just as It was rounding the curve at the junction. In jumping, his foot missed the foot rail, and banging on by his hands he was dragged on the ground in momentary peril of being crushed by the wheels. Officer Shannon, who happened to be standing at the corner, took in the situ ation at a glance and springing forward he grasped Eager around tbe waist and held him away from tbe car until it could be stopped. This is the second event of this kind in which Shannon has figured, the fitst being in Boyle .Heights in May last, where he saved George Meyer from being run over. CITY BANK SQUABBLE. ATTORNEY' .TONUS GOES FOR ATTOR- MKT F. W. BDRNBir. The Latter Makes No Response to a Charge of Unprofessional Conduct. An Kxplanatlon from Coch ran and Gardiner. The City bank affairs came up in two places yesterday. There was quite a snappy time in Judge McKinley's court room, in which F. W. Burnett, attorney for Receiver Brodtbeck, was sharply criticised by John T. Jones; while in the board of supervisors a funny little document was filed by Attorneys W. P. Gardiner and Geo. I. Cochran. The matter that came up in the court was upon tbe petition to throw the bank into insolvency and put it in tbe hands of an assignee. This petition was filed in tbe superior court several days ago by several small creditors of the bank. Yesterday, which had been fixed for a hearing in the matter, Mr. Burnett pre sented the following innocent-looking writing, which excited Mr. Jones' ire: In the superior court, county of Los Angeles, California, in the matter bi the insolvency of the City bank. The undersigned, having signed the petition on file in said matter under a misapprehension, now ask leave to withdraw their names therefrom as pe titioners, and move that as to them said proceeding be discontinued.

Judge McKinley decided te continue tbe hearing on the petition until Mon day. DID NOT REPRESENT THEM. The board oi supervisors held no ses sion yesterday, but the following carious document, addressed to Chairman Cook, was handed to the clerk to be presented to the board at the next meeting on Monday: ' Gentlemen : In a recent communica tion in writing to your board signed by certain subscribers to tbe official bond of tbe county treasurer, signed also by the Los Angeles clearing house and joined in by Messrs. Cochran and Gardiner as attorneys for other sureties, an error appears in thia: Messrs. Cochran and Gardiner, in purporting to act upon behalf of the sureties upon tbe official bond referred to, should have stated that they did not represent Messrs. Childress, Lunt, Schallert and Park. Messrs. Cochran and Gardiner were instructed by tbe Los Angeles clearing house to subscribe the request as attorneys for the sureties' upon that bond, and when tbe request was pre* eented Mr. Gardiner stated verbally to the board the source of bis authority to act aa above stated. The fact that Messrs. Childress, Lunt, Park and Schal lert were sureties upon that bond was either not known to the subscribers to the request above mentioned, or, if known to any of them, was entirely overlooked at the time the document was signed. No suggestion or request for the institution of any proceedings of any character versus the City bank or its directors or officers has been made by the clearing house or other persons who subscribed said request, excepting the civil actions for the recovery of the money mentioned in the foregoing re quest. The paper was signed Tbe Los An geles Clearing House, by W. P. Gardiner and George I. Cochran, ita attorneys. the Reason. The precedence which Maier & Zobe lein's beer is gaining over all others in this section ia certainly phenomenal. This fact,however,well demonstrates the inevitable result oi conscientious atten tion given goods by their manufacturers. Nothing but the best material regard less of price, enters into the beer made by these gentlemen, whose name alone has grown in this section to be an assur ance of this fact. This beer being more over made right bene at home is always fresh, which is as necessary a requisite in drinks as the condition of the atmos phere is to respiration. As this beer represents a home industry of much worth and magnitude, it is moreover en titled to every encouragement from our consumers. Maier & Zobelein, however, ask no more than a fair trial oi their beer when its superior virtues will speak for themselves. All the rage!

PEACE WAS DECLARED YESTERDAY ii r. Pomeroy Refrains from Slaughtering City Officials. The Irrigation Water Turned Back Into the Ditch. The Power of the Courts Meets the Dif ficulty and Overcome* It la Short Order —Ad Injunction Does tbe Work. Peace—though temporary it may be— was declared yesterday and tbe "water war" is now off. The city has won. am injunction ait an ran. A suit of injunction was filed in the superior court yesterday morning by the city, to restrain J. D. Hooker, A. E. Pomeroy, John Doe and Richard Roe from farther cutting off the city's sup ply of irrigation water. Judge Smith of department one granted a temporary injunction, setting the further hearing for September Ist. THEY WKNT FIXED. Securing the necessary papers, City Zanjero R. Bilderrain, who was sent by tbe city day before yesterday to protect the city's interests, accompanied by Mayor Rowan, Deputy Sheriff Graham and a force of 10 men, proceeded to the scene of the water war. Conncilmen Teed and Nickell and Mr. Brodrick also went out to view the situation. holding the Four. Arriving at the scene Mr. Pomeroy, his attorney, Judge Silent, and his armed men were found to be there "holding the fort" to their entire satis faction. * Map showing the location of the water dispute, boundary of the Provi dencia ranch, the disputed ditch, the dam, the river - and the low elevation which the water flows into when shut out from the canal. Tbe Los Feliz portion of the ranch owned by the city lies beneath tbe boundary line as ebown in the map. The elty officials quietly proceeded to tbe business in hand and the officer served the papers upon the gentlemen. Mr. Pemeroy acted in a very quiet man ner, accepting the inevitable with all possible grace. THE WATER TURNED ON. The situation was surveyed by the officials, after which the force of men were instructed to again turn the water into the canal to supply tbe city. Earth began to fly about 1 o'clock, and before the lapse of many hours the water was again rushing through the disputed ditch. NO RESISTANCE MADE. Not the slightest resistance was made by the owners of tbe property through which the ditch runs. On the other hand, the matter was thoroughly dis cussed by the city's representatives and the landowners. Matters were amica bly arranged and a verbal contract given by Mr. Pomeroy to tbe effect that no action would be taken by him to shut off the water until the question as to ownership is settled in the courts. THE OTHER SIDE OP THE CASE. Mr. Pomeroy was seen by a reporter. He shewed the lease of the ditch be tween his firm and the Citizens' Water company, by which Hooker & Pomeroy were to receive $5 a day rental for the use of the ditch. The contract specified 60 days as the limit of time in which notice of the termination of the con tract was to be made known to the Providencia ranch owners. Notice had been given the Water company June 16th, according to Mr. Pomeroy, and the city was not to be recognized in the matter. He' contended that the city has no right to trespass upon bis lands, and >f it must have water it must be gotten some other way than by carrying it over his property. EXPENSIVE LITIGATfON. However, Messrs. Hooker and Pome roy claim they will make no effort to undo what has been done by the city, and will await the decision of the conrt. The trouble will involve the city in extensive litigation, which may not be settled for years. While the city claims that the courts will finally restore the ditch, the Providencia ranch owners claim with equal certainty that they will win the case. Complications may arise which will carry the matter along for an unexpected length oi time. WITHOUT BLOODSHED. It is very pleasant to know that this important matter has been at least tem porarily settled without bloodshed. It is admitted that a mistake was made by the owners of the Providencia ranch in sending armed men to the dam to guard it. What the result of this attempt to defy the city will be can only be sur mised. THE INJUNCTION. The complaint seta forth that tbe city owns an irrigating ditch or canal leading from the Lob Angeles river at a point on tbe Providencia rancho and flowing through the city. The ditch has a capa city of 400 miners' inches of water and it is used for the purpose of supplying its inhabitants with water for domestic purposes, irrigating purposes, flushing sewers and irrigating and supplying public parks with water. It is alleged that for more than 20 years the city has maintained a dam on the ranch at a point near ' the termina tion of tbe ditch, which is necessary to dirert the waters of tbe river into the ditch. The city charges that August 17th tbe defendants unlawfully diverted the waters from the ditct). causing them to flow back into the river, and destroyed the dam so aa to prevent the waters from flowing into the ditch. By reason of this action a large num ber of tbe inhabitants of tbe city are left without water for domestic use as well aa for irrigation and other purposes. An injunction ia therefore asked for to restrain the defendants from interfering with the dam, ditch and waters. POLICE DEPARTMENT. Sidewalks Cannot lie Obstructed by Money Investors. Yesterday constant complaints were made fer obstructing the sidewalk on Spring street in front of Gordan Broa. tailor store. A police officer waa aent out to find out the trouble. To his sur prise he saw men standing in a line waiting for their turn to get measured for clothes. A 10-days's aale was commenced yes terday in the tailor store of Gordan Bros.', oppoaite the Nadeau hotel. They are trying to depose of $10,000 worth of stock in 10 days and convert the goods to money, in order to induce the public to leave their orders for ciotbes. They have reduced the prices bo low that it created quite a stir among the Los An geles people; hence the store is kept crowded with purchasers. In order to obtain the first choice, they constantly crowd to the frent, for each wants to be able to place his orders li rat. In order to keep each of the crowd in turn the assistance of the police is re quired constantly. This salo will only last for 10 days. Orders tor nuits are taken regardless cost of material. Suits of imported goods are sold as low as $19.50, and made to order. Pants of the best manufactured styles are made to order as low aa $4.75. The police will have their bands full to keep the crowd away from the front of tbe tailor store. MISERLY MEANNESS. IHI WAT JURIES ARK TREATED BT TUB OOUNTT. Twelve Reputable Men Locked Up In a BaEsarly Little Room and Hade to Pay for Their Meala. It certainly cannot be tbe intention of the beard of supervisors of Los Angeles county and the district attorney's office to exhibit a niggardliness in its treat ment of term trial jurors in civil cases in tbe superior conrt that smacks of barbarißm, but it looks as if they were showing a mean paraimoniousness that deserves public attention. The jurors in a case tried in depart ment six oi the superior court are men who do net talk much, bnt they have told some things to their friends that deserve to be noticed. The case was the damage suit of Geimer vs. Matthews. It was on trial a couple of days, and the jury went out Friday afternoon about 4 o'clock. They were not able te agree upon a verdict and when supper time came were taken out to supper by Deputy Sheriff Rector, who was in charge of them. They were required to pay for their suppers. It had been directed that if they agreed they could return a sealed verdict and go heme, but they could not come anywhere near an agreement. They were in a small jury room, which con tained tables and chairs. It bad only one window, and is one of tbe small rooms in the court house, not being more than 15 feet long by 10 wide. As the night wore on some of the jurors, who are elderly men, began to feel very mn-cb broken up in tbe cramp ed and r stuffy little room. They ap pealed' to 1 the depnry sheriff to take them to the court room of department one, in the gallery of which cots have been provided for all night juries. The technical deputy said he had ho au thority to grant their request. The consequence was that the jurors were obliged to sit up all night in chairs in a room where they could not move around, and by morning some of them were absolutely sisk. But to cap the climax of the rough treatment received, when day dawned and they were taken to breakfast, the same stingy policy bad been pursued, and the-y were obliged to pay for their breakfaats. It ia bad enough for business men to be taken from their business, but wrien it is remembered that the veriest crim inals are treated better than thia term trial jury In the superior court, it can be cbaracterized as nothing short of outrageous. ORANGE GROWERS ORGANIZING The Purple Scale Bug Discovered at the Poor Farm—The Proceedings. A.very enthusiastic meeting of orange growers was held in the Vernon school house last night for the purpose of con sidering the advisability of organizing in league with Riverside, Redlands, the San Gabriel valley and the entire orange producing districts of Southern Califor nia. The meeting lasted two hours and a half and was addressed by T. H. B. Chamblin, A. W. Brewtr and G. J. Grif fith. Many questions were asked about the Riverside plan of organization and the possibility of our following its course, to all oi which Mr. Chamblin answered every inquiry in a masterly manner and to tbe entire satisfaction of all present. A motion to immediately proceed to organize was unanimously passed and a committee of five was appointed to draft articles of incorporations after the Riv erside plan and report at a meeting to be held in tbe same place next Saturday at 7 :30 p. m. The existence of the worat of all or chard pests, called tbe purple scale, dis covered near tbe Poor farm, was dis cussed and great fears were entertained of its spreading over beautiful Vernon. Among those present were noticed Geo. J. Daltot), Thomaa Millsap, H. R. Bmith, Geo. Hanna, Daniel McKinay, E. M. Millsap, S. D. Pallet, J. H. Brown, Edward H. Morgan, Jas. S. MeKenzie, Thomaa Meade and upwarde of 40 oth ers. Mr. H. R.

GOVERNOR MARKHAM RETURNS. He Has Not Yet Decided About the Extra Session. Prompt Action Taken Regarding; the Situation at Bakersiield. Tho Matter of the Calling the Leglslatafc to Be Settled Soon—Some Quick Telegraphing — 111 a Health Good. Governor H. H. Mark-hum returned to Pasadena from a fishing and hunting trip np the San Gabriel cation late last evening. A Herald reporter interviewed him immediately after his arrival at his home on South Paßadena avenue. Although much fatigued from his trip, having been traveling since 4 o'clock in the morning, he welcomed the scribe in his usual pleasant manner and talked freely of hie future movements, so far as they have been determined. While engaged in conversation a telegram was received from the Sheriff oi Kern county stating that be feared the local authorities would not be able to control tbe movement against the Chinese at that place, and asking that, if absolutely necessary, permission be given to call out the state guards. The governor, realizing the possible eerions condition of affairs at Bakers field and knowing tbat prompt action waa necessary, at once telegraphed to Judge Conkiin of the superior court at Bakersfield asking to be informed of the exact state of affairs. In the course of a few minutes a reply was received from the judge stating that so far there was no necessity for calling out the troops, and advising that this qnly be done when it was found that the local authorities could not con trol tbe movement. At 8:30 the gov ernor wired the judge instructing him to notify Captain Cook that in the case of absolute necessity, and as a last re sort, that he waa authorized to call out the state guards, but that the utmoat discretion must be need in tbe matter. This closed the telegraphing for the night, after the governor bad requested that he be kept fully advised as to the sitnatien. The governor stated that as he had just returned from, the mountains, be had not bad a chance to investigate the situation regarding the advisability of calling a special session of the legisla ture for the purpose of appropriating money for the midwipter fair at San Franciaeo and giving the counties au thority to appropriate money for tbe same purpose. "While in tbe mountains," said Gov ernor Markham," I met the committee appointed by tbe commissioners to urge the necessity of an extra session, and stated to them that I would give the subject my most careful consideration at the earliest possfble moment. At pres ent I can add nothing to this statement, but the subject will be among the first to receive my attention, and I will ar rive at a decisien in a few days." When questioned as to the effect the calling of the legislature together would have upon the recent senatorial appoint ment ane whether any actioa would be taken in case the legislature meet, the governor said: "This phase of the ques tion will have be considered." Beyond this he refused to make any statement. He is in excellent health, ihe two weeks' knockjnv about in the mountains with bis old friend W. E, Cooley having done him a world of good. Regularly every summer for the paßt 14 years Mr. Markham, in company with a friend or two, has made thia trip, and much bene fit has been derived from it. Two weeks were Bpent during the last trip, and all the trout tbe party could use were taken. At present the governor is buried in a pile of correspondence that means several days of hard work to get through. He will leave in the course of a week for Sacramento. LAMOREE'S LATEST. Bo Tries Signing; Sheriff Cllne's Name to a Cheek. For several years paat Frank Lamoree, a half-witted young man who Uvea in Loa Angelea, baa been a constant source of uneaeiness to his parents. He has an unfortunate penohant for forging checks for small amounts and cashing them. He has been in the courts several times for euch things, but his evident lack of mental balance and de formed limbs have always kept him from conviction. Yet he haß never been considered insane enough to send to an insane asylum. His latest escapade was Friday night, when he went to Lamanda park. Here represented himself to Mr. Nowell, of the firm of Nowell & Wilson, aa H. C. Cline, a brother of Sheriff Cline, and exhibited a deputy sheriff's badge he had procured in some way. He asked them to cash a check of T 5 for him, which they did. It was afterwards found to be worthless, and Sheriff Cline was notified. He had no trouble in identifying the forger from the descrip tion, and Lamoree waa soon in jail, A complaint was filed against him late yesterday afternoon in Justice Bartholo mew's court, charging him with em bezzlement.
