There were just eight members of the house present at last night's session. The Valkyrie has thus far failed to show indications of being able to wrest the America cup from its owners. She is a Etannch vesßel but tbo Vigilant is even a stauncher. For forty-one years the British tars have made determined effort s to regain that famous cup, but thus far with the result oi invariable failure. The Messrs. Pierce and Shafer yester day, after numerous conferences with the water committee of the council, left for the east. They reduced their offer to ceil to the city tbe water company prop erty, with its stock, plant and appurte nances, to $3,800,000, or a drop of $200, --000. This is understood to be their ulti matum. Senator Voorhees, acting on instruc tions from the White House, yesterday gave notice that on Wednesday next he would move for b continuous session of the senate till tbe repeal bill is dippoeed of. The tall sycamore of the Wabash •till expresses confidence in the ulti gaate unconditional repeal of the Sher man act, but the majority ot tbe repeal ers do not share this opinion. Compro mise seems to be the only solution of tbe question. The Southern Pacific Railway of Ken tacky day before yesterday filed a mort gage for $58,000,000 to secure a new issue of bonds. They are to be issued in fractional sums, the first amounting to $15 000,000. It is announced to be the intention of tbe company to push the completion of the coast road as soon as the condition of the money market ad mits of the negotiation of the bonds. When that is completed all the travel by tbe Sunset route will be over the coast line. Work on tho Margarita tun nel is progressing at a rapid rate. Travel between Lob Angeles and San Franciaco will be specially delighu'al over the new route. Befobk I'rofeesor Koebele starts upon hie mission for tbe Hawaiian govern ment in search of enemies of tfie Fcale peßtß in the Sandwich it lands Southern California could make no better invest ment tbnn an arrangement with him to keep an eye open for iriEect life that will be of benefit to the fruit interest. Tho Btate can do nothing before the next legislature meets, but private enterprise could accomplish the purpose. I'ro feesor Koebelo will, no doubt, need no incentive to keep alive his interest in tbe state, which has bent fitted so in calculably by his knowledge and re searches. Yet it would be a graceful recognition of his services, as well as a most valuable assistance in fighting tbe fruit pests, to retain such an expert. A WONDERFUL REGION'S SIGNAL TRI UMPH. It is not difficult to get a reputation for hyperbole when one writes of South ern California. In fact, tbe Oolden State in its entirety is so attractive to both the descriptive and the analytical writer that when one is telling the most prosaic truth it looks like exaggeration. Fortunately, however, we are not obliged to depend on either our own writers or on those from abroad, who are even more encomiastic than our own, when it comes to making the pro ducts of California, and particularly Southern California, known. When men of the type of Charles Dudley War ner visit this state the ecstacies of the most famous* "boom" writers are eclipsed and the real estate syndicates are nowhere. California, and Southern California in especial, make themselves understood abroad by tbeir products. Los Angeles and adjoining countios did this in an especial manner at the New Orleans ex position. Although the people of Louis iana have long boasted of their oranges, and the committee that made the awards contained not a single Californian, Riv erside carried off the sweepstakes pre mium for this fruit. Southern Califor nia not only took the principal premium for citrus fruits but nearly all the minor premiums. In addition, we were most liberally treated in all other lines of fruit. That we have made great progress since then the astonishing results at the Columbian world's fair at Chicago show very plainly. Elsewhere we print the list of awards to California exhibitors, and it will well repay perusal. It tells a wonderful story of successful achieve ment. It is the report of the pomo logical committee, and is a complete list of the awards to American exhib itors. It will be seen tbat California pomologists receive two hundred and three medals for fruit to Florida's one. That is certainly a superb exhibit for the whole state. On a close examination of the list, however, it will be seen that Southern California has been awarded 167 medals to 36 received by Northern and Central California between them. It would in deed be hard to chronicle anything more agreeable than is embodied in the state ment of a fact like that. And yet our Northern and Central California friends should not be discouraged. It is only when it comes to Southern California hat there is any occasion to hide their diminished heads. As to all other com petitors, they of Northern and Central California are champions of the first re nown. It is an interesting reflection that Southern California has been enabled to accomplish these marvels through the aid of as yet an imperfectly developed system of irrigation. Whiln we have done a great deal, it is yet as nothing to what we shall accomplish, j And what a wonderful region it is, that iv which we live? It is but the other day when the greater portion of South ern California was a vast sheep range. Twenty years ago Pasadena wbb simply a portion of the SanFasquale ranch, and the old adobe ranch house was the only building on a spot tbat is now graced by one of the most consummately lovely regions on earth, and containing a city whose elegance appeals to every one of esthetic tastes. Just 20 years ago Judge North was laying the foundations of Riverside, certainly one of the moat eclectic spots on earth. Within a short radius of Los Angeles a score of beautiful settlements, representing the higheet perfection of civilization, and all the result of the intelligent ap plication of water to a fecund soil, are to be found. And all this is bb yet in its infancy. The memberß of the inter national irrigation congress which as sembles here on Tuesday next abould not fail to take a trip over the kite shaped track and sea for themselves the miracles that have been accomplished here by irrigation. They cannot fail to be impressed by the spectacleof agrowth whicb, in variety and luxuriance, is not surpassed, if it iB approached, by any other epot on the footstool. But to return to our muttons! Oar brethren of the Northern Citrus Belt can find iv the awards at Chicago much food for reflection. After such an em phatic object lesson they can scarcely maintain the high and haughty position it has pleaaed them to assume in the past. Medals talk fully as loudly as money, and it certainly cannot be con tended that 30 medals count for as much ss 107. Ia getting at 36 medals for tbe northern and central counties we have included every one whose locality was at all doubtful, some of the places being difficult to locate. That tho California exhibit at Chicago has been a great object lesson to the people of tho United States no thought ful man can doubt. It has shown that the Golden state ia par excellence tho region of pleuty and beauty, and that Loa Angeles and the adjoining counties are pre-eminently the section in which to plant their Lirea and Penates. Here is emphatically the place where a man can sit down under hia own vine and fig tree, with no one to make him afraid. The superlative success of our exposi tion meaDß that myriads of eaßteuers have made up their minds to the tfl'ect that the Golden state is the spot where they will make their lasting city. GOVERNMENT AID FOR IRRIGATION The Kansas City Star, as well as many other newspapers fuither east, discoun tenances the proposition of government aid for irrigation. The Star is confused. The plan is not to irrigate the land itself, but to provide means whereby tbe land may be irrigated and thuß be reclaimed. Years ago the government, passed drain age laws looking to the reclamation of swamp lands. If the government can legislate to take water out of lands it can LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8. 1893 certainly legislate to pnt water on the lands. It is jost that appropriations should be made for these purposes out of the immense surplus of tbe government's re-venues. Look at the millions of dol lars annually appropriated and expeaded for the improvement of rivers and har bors. The number of people benefited thereby are only those engagsd in trans portation. Is transportation tbe only thing requiring the paternal care of the government? Has there ever been a secretary of transportation ? The sub ject has never been deemed of sufficient importance to create such an office in tbe president's cabinet. Agriculture has a secretary. It has been elevated to tbe dignity of the most important, and made the equal of the other functions of the government. It is agriculture which demands the ad vancement of the cause of irrigation. Already has tbe last of Uncle Sam's naturally watered domain been given away. The land offices are preparing to close up. Nothing is left now but the vast arid plains on the eastern slope of the Rocky mountains, in the Colorado basin and on the western slope of tbe Sierra Nevada. Within'this area it is plainly the duty of tbe government: First—To cause a general survey to be made to ascertain: (a) The area of catchments and vol ume of water supplies. (b) Tbe sites for reservoirs and routes of waterways. (c) The local duty of water and acre age capable of supply. (d) The estimated cost of construction of both public and private water works. Second —To appropriate sufficient funds to economically execute such of the foregoing plan as are plainly of a public character. Third—To arrange some equitable plan for the settlement or occupation of said lands by Uncle Sam's bona fide children and none others, and utterly xcluding speculators and monopolies. Some of this work has already been done, especially tbe appropriation for the preliminary survey of catchment areas and reservoir sites. But the work should not be allowed to stop. This is one of the objects of next Tuesday's convention. The civilization built upon the irriga tion of the arid lands will be of the most permanent character, even as irri gation is more constant and equable than the natural rainfall. In irrigated countries failures of crops are never known. Hence, there is never a cessation of the revenues of the people. The first great principle of finance — the creation and maintenance of a rev- enue—with such a people is always a solved problem. Hence, with the exer cise on their part of the second great principle of finance—tbe saving of a part, greater or less, of their revenues there is bound to be a colosßal accumu lation of wealth in the irrigated belts. With wealth will come leisure, cul ture, education, refinement, elegance; iv fact, tbe greatest civilization of this age will grow up in the arid zones as it did in other and former ages. Tne moat pieaaing pictures open be fore the mental vision are the arid por tions of the United Stateß, viewed as they will be fifty and a hundred years hence. Great cities of grand mansions and tine thoroughfares, besetting emer ald fields, watered with crystal floods from everlasting and snow-crowned mountains, with every condition favor able for physical and psychical develop ment, what a magnificent race of man there will be? Let ua all put our shoulders to the wheel and help lay the foundation of this desirable state of affairs. Y. P. S. C. E. The Semi-Annual Convention Hold Yes terday.

OUT FOR A LARK. JUBT AFTER DARK BRADBURY MET MISS WHEELER. She Smiled and Spoke and Being Quite Broke Threw Ont a Little Feeler—Smothered with Kisses. A highly •mated audience, says the Chicago Dispatch, sat in JudgeTuthill's court Friday and listened to the evi dence presented in the case of May Wheeler, who was on trial for the alleged thett of a ,500 diamond from William Bradbury, a prominent Califor nian, with strange ideas about the women who address men on tbe streets in Chicago. He is worth more than $1,000,000, and at his home is one of the moat staid and respected of tbe solid men of tbe golden state. Mr. Bradbury came to Chicago a couple of weeks ago. He desired to see the world's fair, and, in cidentally it would seem, to "sort o' turn himself loose." Walking in the gloaming one evening on State street, Mr. Bradbury met Mies Wheeler. Miss Wheeler is a handsome girl about 24 years old. She has a lis some, willowy form that caught the eya and fired the heart of Mr. Bradbury. Her blonde, fluffy bangs and her peachy cheeks smote hard thumps on Mr. Brad bury's emotions, and when May emiled sweetly, yet modestly and demurely, at Mr. Bradbury, he capitulated at once. He forgot his family out in California, his high position in society, bis millions and everything, and lived only in the sunlight of that smile. "Good evening," said May. Now there was no harm in that Out in California everybody says "good evening" to every one else, and so Mr. Millionaire Bradbury thought it was only courteous for him to cay "Good evening" in reply. These salutations grew into conversation, during which Mies Wheeler invited her new friend to go with her to a hotel at 76 Van Buren street. Mr. Brabury went. The clerk there is an obdurate sort of person and compelled the millionaire to pay $1 in advance for the use of tbe room. After an hour passed in —"treading the primrose path of dalliance" in a very mild fashion Mr. Bradbury re visited tbe glimpses of electric lamps to find tbat tbe $500 diamond that glis tened on bis bosom bad vanished. He appealed to the police and May was ar rested. ( EVIDENCE WAS l liIO.CE. Mr. Bradbury's evidence in the trial was unique. He had done no wrong with Miae Wheeler. He had not been unfaithful to hiß family ties. Ac be sat in the witness chair be looked the indig nant pater famitias accused of indiscre tion. Mr. Bradbury is a well built man, some 50 years old. His face is bronzed by the ardent sun of tbe glo rious climate of California. His chin whiskers remind one of Billy Crane in Tbe Senator. "You went to a room with this yonng women?" queried Attorney Don ahue, who was defending May Wheeler. "1 did," replied Millionaire Brad bury. "What did you go there for?" - — r.- —or '' "You didn't do anything improper, did you ?" "No, sir." "Now, didn't you tvu do«/ — " lDin s besides talk after you got io that room ? "Well, I suppose we did." "Wnat did you do?" "Well, ehe kissed me." "Did you kiBS her in return?' "I s'pose I did." "Did she do anything else?" "She hugged me." "Andyou reciprocated her affectionate embrace?" "I gueßß I did," "You went no further?" "No, air." MADE TUEM LAUGH. "You didn't go to that room just to talk, did you?" " "Yes, Bir." "When you asked her where her room was it just tlaei.ed across your mind, 'I will go to this lady'a room and talk with her?"' "Yes, sir." "Why didn't you go further than talk?" "I didn't want to after I had talked with her. I thought she was a fast girl." At this ingenious reply the audience in the court room roared. "You thought ahe was fast?" "Yes; she showed herself too fast entirely. I began to think she was a fast girl instead of one tbat wasn't quite so fast." "You thought at first tbat abe was a nice, virtuous girl?" "She is a pretty girl," and Mr. Brad ley sent a beaming glacce from the witness chair to the fair defendant, who sat behind her lawyer. "You enjoyed those hugs and kisses ?" "I did." He could not swear that May had taken his diamond. And the jury disagreed. NEW BUILDINGS. Licenses Issued for a Number of Impor tant ICtliltees. Building permits have been issued to Thomas Holmes for a row of tene ment residences, corner Hill and Sev enth Btreets, the cost of which will be $10,000. Superintendent Eiseu reports the erection of over 500 new residences and business blocks since January Ist. These factß Bhow conclusively that the city is rapidly increasing, the demands for residences going far beyond expec tations. Government Mediation. London, Oct. 7.—lt is learned that the government has decided to act as mediator between the striking miners and owners, provided it is acceptable to both sideß. Soldiers have been Bent to New hall, where there was a row be tween the police and rioters, and in whicb many of the former were injured. Troops for Morocco. Madrid, Oct. 7.—The embarkation of troops lor Melilla is greatly delayed. The newspapers of the city say tho Moors yesterday fired upon tbe Spanish steamer Seville near the coast. Yonng Salvlni Married. Cleveland, 0., Oct. 7.—Salvini, the young tragedian, was married to one of the members of his company, MiBS Maud Dixon, at the Stillman hotel, today. St. Petersburg, Oct. 7.—A newly built bouse collapsed in tbe town of KostofF, killing 30 persons. WON'T DO IT AGAIN. Ex-Mayor Hazard Getting Over His Pugilistic Rtioonnter. Ex-Mayor Hazard was seen on the street yesterday for the first time since his unfortunate accident several weeks ago. This fact recalls the incident by which he was injured in play with Judge Smith. The ex-mayor bad intended departing tbe following day on tbe chamber of commerce excursion for the world's fair. He and Judge Smith en gaged in a friendly scuffle, when the dignified judge threw the unsuspecting ex-mayor to the floor, breaking an ankle. Two weeks later Judge Smith was run over by an electric car in Chicago, and was very badly injured. This singular coincidence will live alway in the minds of the gentlemen whom it most af fected. Judge Smith is expected home within a few days, and then what a season of congratulations will be indulged in by the injured chums! PHYSICAL CULTURE. A Teacher Who Thinks Work Is the Best Exercise. Prof. Eli F. Brown, superintendent of the Riverside schools, addressed the meeting of principles of the city schools yesterday at the Spring street building. His subject was Health and Physical Culture. He took the view tbat whiie the school of gymnastics end Del Sarte is good, it does hot go far enough. The homely industries, such as housework, horticulture, etc., are much better adapted to the physical trailing of boys and girls than any so-called system of gymnastics. Dr. Haskell of the Berkeley university also addressed tbe meeting of principals of Los Angeles county schools yesterday at the high school building, Tbe sub ject related more particularly to the unification of high school work, which was originated in this county by Super intendent Brown of tbe city schools.
