DowNiY- News notea
The American people, aa a whole, are
unalterably opposed to the annihilation
of one of the twin moneys oi the consti
tution. The sooner President Cleveland
and congress recognize this fact tbe
sooner we may hope for some legislation
in the interest of the country.
In congress yesterday the senate was
entertained by speeches from Senators
Blackburn of Kentucky and Butler of
South Carolina. The latter gentleman
made the sensible suggestion that the
very essence of all legislation was com
promise, and that the silver question
must be adjusted on that basis. Both
were unqualifiedly opposed to tbe un
qualified repeal of the Sherman act.
The Democrats of the house have made
up their minds that the Tucker bill,
repealing the federal elections laws, is a
little too sweeping, and Congressman
Fitch, Democrat, of New York, haa in
troduced a modified measure.
While our amiable brethren of San
Francisco are very anxious to have
Southern California walk into their par
lor, on the spider to the fly principle, it
is a noteworthy circumetance that tbe
great irrigation congress, which ia to as
semble in Los Angeles next week, is re
ceiving absolutely no attention whatso
ever from the preßS of Northern Cali
fornia. The enthusiastic individual of
Southern California that lies awake o'
nightß thinking tbat his northern bro
ther carea for him is very much deceived
indeed. The amount of interest taken
in Southern California by San Francisco
and tbe counties around the bay, and to
tbe north of that splendid spread of
water, is beet represented by the classic
phrase "deuce aces."
Wb have had occasion to call tbe at
tention of Angelefios to the very excep
tionally good condition of the Los
Angeleß banks; in fact, to those of Cal
ifornia at large. Notwithstanding the
sneering references of Comptroller of
tbe Currency Eckels to the banks of the
weßt, and to what he was pleased to
term "boom" regions, the banks of the
Golden State have had a magical record.

the suspensions and re-openings of the

■uepended in California, twenty-four
have resumed. That ie to day, that in
the Oolden State eighty per cent, of her
banks are again in full career of useful
ness, while in the country atlarge about
eighteen per cent, only have been re
habilitated, in some states, as Illinois,
lees than two per cent, recordiug a re
covered solvency. There is something
specially interesting and instructive in
an exhibit like tbat. It emblazons tbe
financial heavens with a brilliant mes
sage of California solvency, radiating to
the four corners of the earth.
PROSPEROUS THINGS AHEAD FOR LOS
The opening days ot October show a
remarkable vitality in all the lines of
business in Los Angeles. We have, of
course, been obliged to chronicle a sum
mer which was mado dull not by any
conditions wbich existed in Southern
California but by a panic which was
precipitated from tbe east, and in which
silver was made the innocent medium
Of the havoc wrought.- Whole common
wealths were prostrated, and they were
commonwealths which distinctively
added to the wealth of the country.
Southern California, ol couree, shared
in the disasters that overwhelmed the
country, but the recovery o! Los Ange
les from a momentary depression was
something almost miraculous. The
state, and Los Angelea county with it,
sustained great damage through the
timidity of capital. For months it was
impossible even to get money to move
the crops, and naturally prices of most
staples, and especially of grain, Buffered
heavily. Bnt nearly all these draw
backs have disappeared, and the clear
sky which for three hundred and twenty
days of the year always discloses itself
over the beautiful Los Angeles valley is
now without a speck to dim its luster.
History is said to repeat itself. It
will probably do so in' the present in
stance. The panic of 1873 introduced
the first Teally great boom Los Angeles
had ever had. With tbe failure of Jay
Cook & Co. innumerable people in the
east found that their occupation was
gone. Engaged in large operations in
the centers of capital they lound that
tbeir diminished means disabled them
from competition with their more for
tunate rivalß. Very naturally they con
cluded to realize on all the resources
they could command, and to hie them
selves to a new and growing region,
where their retrenched capital wonld
still be relatively quite considerable.
Los Angeles received the bulk of tbat
immigration following upon the panic of
1873*. She will profit in a similar way
in 1893, and the only difference will be
that she will bo profit on a much larger
In addition, the closing of the World's
Columbian fair will produce results tbat
few of our people dream of. A very
large proportion of the people who have
profited by the great concentration of
wealth at the Windy City during the
six months of tbe fair are perfectly
aware that a tremendous reaction in the
line of dullness will follow upon its
closing. They have made preparations
to seek fresh fields and pastures new.
Many of them are aware of the fact that
Southern California, and Los Angelea in
particular, offers a moat inviting field
for the investment of capital. They are
coming west in great numbers, with the
determination of growing up with the
We think we know whereof we Bpeak
when we predict that the coming winter
and spring will be signalized by phe
nomenal additions to tbe population,
wealth and enterprise of Los Angeles.
The Angel City has the call amongst all
the growing and progressive cities of the
United States. "Excelsior" is written
on her fair young brow, and the man
who casts in his fortunes with her fu
ture will be well rewarded. Even now
an experienced eye can discern the
signs of a development tbat will surpass
everything recorded in her past history.
IS IT A MISSED OPPORTUNITY?
It is really much to be regretted that
Los Angeles has not seen fit to come to
the front with a movement to have a
considerable representation of the
World's Columbian Fair exposition at
Westlake park, or at some other eligible
place in Los Angeles. It is somewhat
mortifying that the suggestion should
have emanated from an enterprising
newspaper of San Bernardino county,
but we admit the remissness of this city
to the claims which it might have readi
ly urged upon the exhibitors at tbe fair.
In its issue of October 2nd our San Ber
nardino contemporary, the Courier,
Tbe suggestion of the Courier that
Los Angeles secure the Midway Plais
ance for a winter exhibition and place it
at VVestlake park is meeting with much
commendation in that city, and if some
moving spirit would take bold of it, he
would secure plenty of backing. If it ia
to be done a move should be made im
mediately, for there are only twenty
five days of the world's fair left, et the
close of which the attractions will eeat
ter. With the plaisance at Los Armeies
as a nucleus for an exhibit the whole of
Southern California would asftidi *ith
displays of fruit, flowers and ot.'-i at
tractive features, making it one oi the
best displays ever held in that city,
drawing and holding to SouthHp Cali
fornia all winter a vaßt crowd of tourist"!
that, without thie extra attraction, will I
go to the north end of the Htato.
We are inclined to think that we have
been caught napping. It is entirely
too late now to accomplish much in tins
line. At the same time there ia no
reason why we should not arrange a j
splendid exposition et Lob Angeles for i
the products of Southern California that '
will he of entrancing interest to the
myriads of easterners who will throng
to thie section. The midwinter fair is a
shrewd device of tbe people of San
Francieco to divert attention from the
fact that that city has upon its Dande
an appolliug number of distressed per
nors, for whom it desires to
obtain employment. It ia also a
ekillltil movement to cloak the
fact that there are six IbouEacd vacant
housea in the Golden Gate. From this
point of view the project is entirely
admirable, but it does not seem to call
ior any extraordinary amount of enthu

eiasm from the rest of the etate, and
particularly from Southern California.
There are two old adages that apply to
tbe situation. One is that every tub
should stand on its own bottom, and
the other is that charity begins at
home. Why Southern California, in
especial, should be asked to contribute
to tbe aggrandizement of San Francisco
we confess that we fall to see, more
particularly in view of the fact that it ia
only a very short while since the mer
chants of San Francisco made a most
determined effort to get the managers of
the Southern Pacific railway company to
deny to Los Angeles the privilege of
throogb rates from the East, seeking to
reduce this city to the old condition of
vassalage to tbe toll-taker by the sea.
We are afraid tbat our own Chamber
of Commerce missed the opportunity of
its life when it failed to initiate a move
ment for a Midwinter Fair in Los An
geles. Where else should such an ex
position be held? Where else, except
in tbe Angel City, or in some other
central and attractive portion of this
sub-tropic land, would the visitor be so
forcibly impressed with the inimitable
charms of the American Italy—to em
ploy the designation of Charles Dudley
Warner—as in Los Angeles?
The cable system of railroads of Lob
Angeles was sold yesterday under the
decree of foreclosure recently rendered
by Judge Walter Van Dyke. There was
only one bidder, the Consolidated Elec
tric Railway company of Lob Angeles,
through Vice-President E. P. Clark.
Ilia bid was if 1.131,241.18 for the fran
chise, $17,476.36 for personal property
and $165,600 for real estate and shares
in branch lines, making a total of
$1,344,320.48. The sale was made sub
ject to $61,061.98 worth of receiver's
certificates, if they are adjudged valid.
Several capitalieta of San Francisco,
heavily interested in the property, and
attorneys from San Francisco and Chi
cago, representing various bonded in
terests, were present at the sale. Tbe
purchase of the system by the Electric
road is in accordance with the plan of
consolidation of the two systems which
hae been pending for some time.
Loa Angeles Theater.—ln offering
tbe production ot tbe famous melo
drama, Tbe Soudan, to the more dis
criminating theater goers of thie city
the management are most confident that
never before in the history of the local
stage has such a portraiture of exciting,
realistic theatrical production ever been
presented here. The story of the play
has to deal with scenes and interesting
characters in England, and vivid ani
mation of oriental splendor in the
Soudan. The 300 people, gaily bedecked
Arabian horses, a military band, a drum
corps, 18 changes of ornamental scenery
and several tons of effects and curious
parapharnalia help to form bril
liant scenes in the marvellous pro
duction. Among the notable scenes
presented during tbe several acts are a
picturesque view of Stonefield farm,
where tne golden glow of a generous
sunset changeo into a fearful thunder
storm ; tbe capture of Khartoum by the
English soldiers, and the review of the
English soldiers before the Nelson mon
ument in Trafalgar square, London.
These are but a few of tbe vivid and
kaleidoscopic views presented.
The engagement commences this
evening and lasts through tbe week.
George W. Cable will read from bis
works at First Presbyterian church,

Tbe Chicago Herald says of him:
"George W. Cable, the New Orleans
novelist, appeared on the stage at Her
shey Music hall at 6 o'clock last even
ing, and for nearly two hours delighted
a large audience with readings from his
own works descriptive of ecenea among
the Creoles. His presentation of the
tearful Parson Jones in the calaboose
was given with gCod effect, and was
much applauded. The discussion of civ
ilization and the climate between Auro
ra, Clotilda and Frowenfield was amus
ing. Frowenfield, in grandiloquent lan
guage, criticised severely the cases and
customs of the south, but hie compan
ions, not clearly understanding hia
wordß, did not controvert his opin
ions but tacitly concurred in them by
the only remarks which they offered,
which were, "Of coarse," or "Perhaps

The reoeption of Rev. and Mrs. E. A.
Healy at the tabernacle Tuesday night
to celebrate tbo reappointment ol tbe
popular pastor to this charge for another
year was the occasion of one of the
largest and most cordially enthusiastic
church gatherings that ever assembled
here. Fan palms, pampas grass, ivy,
pepper boughs and flowers were the
materials used in decorating, and as it
was a labor of love the three artists,
Mrs. F. W. Hopkins, Mrs. Dr. M. Hil
ton Williams and Mrs. B. F. Hilleker
fairly outdid all previous efforts in this
line. A canopy of fan palms and ever
greens nnder which Mr. and Mrs. Hcaly
stood deserves special mention.
The programme arranged by Briga
dier-General Mrs. Frank W. Hopkins
abounded in pleasant surprises and was
short but decisive. A committee of two,
Miss Lina Lightburn, representing the
i.pworth league, and Mr. Walter Baily,
representing the church proper, met
Mr. and Mrs. Healy outside and escorted
them to tbe throne in front of the plat
form, when Mr. Walter Baily for tbe M.
E. church, Dr. Henderson for the Pres
byterians, Mr. Ira Carter tor the Friends
church, and Miss Lina Lightburn, on
behalf of the Epworth league, in words
of heartfelt sincerity, bid tbe couple
welcome and told how glad all in Long

Mr. Healy then responded to the ad
dress of welcome in his usual happy
manner, and tben cheery words of wel
come and congratulation were showered
npon the couple by the large hearted
people of Long Beach. A graceful trib
ute to the worth of an estimable couple.
After the response all formalities were
cast aside and a general commingling
ensued in which hand shaking and ex
pressions of good will predominated.
Only a few of the names of the many
present can be given. The following
were some of those present: Mrs. Dr.
Cuthbert, Mrs. Dr. M. Hilton Williams,

the following report of the condition of
tbe crops in tbe regions mentioned for
the week ending tbe 2d inst.:
The week until Sunday was cool, with
damp, cloudy nights, and sprinkling
rains in several localities on Friday and
Saturday. The remaining days were
warm and clear, with a moderate
"norther" on Sunday, which greatly
facilitated raisin curing and prune dry
ing. A light frost, the firat of tbe sea
son, occurred at Lancaster, located 2500
feet above sea level in the mountains,
October Ist. Prune drying continues,
and many orchardiets are taking care of
their own crops. The walnut harvest
hns begun, and the crop is an average
one. The quality and size of the nnts
are excellent. Tbe sugar-beet harvest
in Orange county is nearing the end,
and the result this season is so encour
aging tnat a much larger acreage will
be planted next year. Corn harvest is
in full operation. The yield will be
above the average. Grain threshing is
about over. A large portion of tbe bar
ley grown in the vicinity of Santa Ana
was euitable for export brewing pur
Ventura—The bean crop in the county
this year is the best for five years.
Bardsdale—East wind and extensive

LOS ANGELES COUNTY.
Lancaster—The week was windy and
Cold; a frost occurred on Sunday cutting
tender vegetables. Last year froet was
10 days late.
Pasadena—Dried prunes are of very
good quality ; walnuts ready to gather;
navel oranges looa fine, seedlings will
be a light crop; grapes are being exten
sively dried. The end of the week waß
warmer, with a light "norther" on Oc.
Pomona—The first part of the week
was cloudy, with a few drops of rain on
September 28th; tbe latter part was
clear. Prune drying is at its height; no
damage resulted from th* cloudy
weather; about 1000 tons have been
gathered and as much more remain on
the trees.. Late peaches are still coming
in. The grape crop is large; the sul
tanas are being dried, most of tbe others
being sent to Los Angeles. The Septem
ber temperature wis below the average.
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY.
Chino--Cloudy aud foggy weather for
several days prevented beets from ripen
ing as fast as tbey should. About 20.
--000 have been harvested at Chino. The
yield is generally satisfactory.
Rivereide—Grape picking ia progreaa
ing rapidly and drying waa greatly facil
itated by a "norther" on Sunday.
Should fair weather continue for a fort
night the crop will be pretty well cured.
Anaheim — Except tbe first desert
wind of tbe season, on October let, the
weather conditions of the past week
were favorable for harvesting corn and
sugar beets. Tbe nights are getting
quite cool, tbe days are warm and
BAN DIEGO COUNTY.
Escondido—The crop of raisin grapes
thie season ia abundant and of excellent
quality. Escondido is coming to the
lront as a raisin producing section.
El Cajon—Raisin grapes are nearly all
picked ; the quality is better than for
several years past but the quantity is
less tban last year on account of the
very dry season.
San Diego city—The weather was very
poor'for curing raisins; cool, cloudy
nights and occasional heavy dewe re

THERE'S NO TRUTH IN IT.
FATHER SCANLAN NOT APPOINTED
THE BISHOP'S COADJUTOR.
The Report Graw, Ont of a Meeting
Held for Another Purpose.
Bishop Mora Die
, The Herald yesterday learned that
the story telegraphed from San Fran
cisco to the effect that Father Scanlan
has been appointed coadjutor to Bishop
Mora of tbis oity, who is in charge of
the diocese of Monterey and Los Angeles,
is merely a rumor growing out of a
meeting in San Francisco last month.
The San Francisco Call, which printed
the report yesterday morning, must
certainly havo done so without any
research as no appointment can be made
by the pope before a meeting of the
propogandain Rome November 11th.
It was learned on good authority yes
terday that of the three names submitted
to tbe pope the name of Father Scanlan
was omitted, which makes the story
Bishop Mora was interviewed last
evening regarding the story, but be had
no statement to make beyond discredit
ing it. He was satisfied that there was
no truth in the report, but desired to
wait nntil the matter is abated before
making a public statement.
The truth of tbe matter is that the
conclusion was drawn from a meeting in
San Francisco last month. The real
work of the meeting was mistaken for a
recommendation to the pope for the
appointment of a coadjutor to Bishop
Mora, hence the story.

San Francisco, Oct. 4 —At the last
meeting of tbe etate horticultural so
ciety tbe president was empowered to
appoint three delegates to attend the
