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

recognition of his services, as well as a
most valuable assistance in fighting tbe
fruit pests, to retain such an expert.
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
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
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.
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
certainly legislate to pnt water on the
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
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
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.

She Smiled and Spoke and Being Quite
Broke Threw Ont a Little
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. (
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
"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
"I gueßß I did,"
"You went no further?"
"No, air."
"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
"I didn't want to after I had talked
with her. I thought she was a fast
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.
