The following article from the pen of
Mr.O. Mulholland of Inyo county should
h>- read by all well wishers of bos An
geles' and Southern California:
Tue people of Los Angeles understand
fairl.V well that the completion of the Ne
vada Southern railway to the coal and
ii on d posits ol Utah will be of benefit to
this ■city. But without closer study the
bo 11 a 1 benefit certain to come from tbe
building of this road will not be clearly
neeti. In order to show jußt what the
mad will do for ub the following facts
have been gathered with due care to se
cure accuracy. The first item is coal.
The extent and quality oi the Utah coal
fields are now co well established that
on that point no more need be said. Tbe
importance of tbe coal businees will be
ee«n from the following official reports
of receipts at different cities; the figures
are all for 1891 :
At Cleveland, coal and coke 2.601,474

For the same year the coal prodoct ol
Peunovlvacia was worth at the mitten
tbe great sum of $111,215,788. All that
Pennsylvania ia to the Atlantic coast in
end coal the Utah coal deposit will be to
the Pacific coast, and tbe whole of that
vast traffic will come through or near
Los Angelee.
The next item is iron, and in this
connection attention is invited to the
following statement from the United
States geological report for 1891:
"It is, however, true that there is a
scarcity of Bessemer iron ores on the At
lantic coast. . . . Our imports of
iron ore are chiefly to supply the wants
of blast furnaces, and particularly for
those furnaces which produce Bessemer
pig iron. . . . Ores low in phosphor
ous are absolutely necessary for tbe
manufacture of Bessemer pig iron."
Now, the quality of the Utah ore, in
which it excels all other ore, is its tree
dom from phosphorus. The quantity
and ease of procuring tbe ore are the
wonder of all scientific men who have
examinedtthe deposits. With tbe Ne
vada Southern to deliver this ore at tide
water there would be great demand for
it. But a more important fact is that
tbe building of tbis line will result in
tbe establishment of great iron works
near Los Angeles, such as blast furnaces,
rolling mills, furnaces and machine
shops. Not iess certain is it tbat ship
building works rivaling those on the
Clyde, Tyne, Mersey and Thames in
Britain, and on the Delaware,
will follow, and that at no very distant
In order to mske Bessemer pig iron
Great Britain is forced to import ore
from foreign countries; in 189U the im
port! reached the huge quantity of
4.471.700 tons.
A few years ago ore suited to making
Easeemer pig iron was found near the
si,ore of Lake Superior. So great is tbe
demand for tbe ore, and so rapidly did
the buti.tees increase, that in 1890 the
shipments down the lake amounted to
9,012,279 tons. This single item alone
>-tiowß tbe enormous value of tbe busi
•se.s. But add to that the value of tbe
ore when made into steel rails and every
O'ber article of steel and iron, and the
mind is bewildered in trying to grasp
tbe vast total.
The railroad will run through the
richest and most extensive deposits of
lead and silver now known west of the
Rocky mountains. The quantities of
ore in sight and tbe facilities for mining
are so good, that although there were no
adequate means of transportation,
miners have been taking out ore for
years and holding on to claims, believ
ing that for that interest alone a rail
road must be built into the country.
The only deposit of lend carbonate flux
ing ore now known in tbe United States
will be tapped by the railway. This
class of ore is now shipped to Colorado
from Mexico, and the cost of transporta
tion is great; the supply along the line
of the Southern Nevada appears to be
very extensive. Near Ivanpah, in
San Bernardino county, the ore
has been found rich enough to bear
the high cost of transportation by teams
and from one camp about $7,000,000 has
already been taken out.
At the Copper World mine 1000 tons
of ore are now on the dump and hundreds
•f thousands of tons in sight that will
go from 25 to 40 per cent copper, 25
ounces silver and some gold. With rail
transportation all this can be taken
out. Shadow Mountain is another rich
district waiting for transportation to
turn out great supplies of ore.
At Dan by ore was found so rich and
plentiful that two furnaces and a 10
--stamp mill were built 14 years ago,
when all freighting had to be done from
Colton, 200 miles away. Tbis district
will produce a great amount of business
for the road.
At the Groom lead mine there is now
on tbe dump 12,00 tons of ore and at
least 30,000. tons in Bight. Resting
Springs is another rich district tbat will
furnish business for the road, even if
hauling by teams some distance should
be necessary. Several years ago about
10,000 tons of ore were taken out there
Irom mines owned by J. B.Osburn.when
freights ranged from $50 to $100 per ton
to the railroad.
Much more might be given to the
same effect, but these instances will
Serve to show the value of the ore traffic
tbat awaits the railroad.
At Montgomery dißlrict 50,000 tons of
gold ore are now in sight; a five-stamp
mill has been running during tbe past
Summer, and the ore pays well. The
owners of the mines say they would be
well pleased if the road should come
even within 60 miles of their camp.
Pahranagat valley is surrounded by
tbe best mineral section in Nevada. At
present tbe mines are 200 miles distant
from railroad; freight costs from $50 to
$76 per ton, and only the richest ores
can be taken out. With the facility af
forded by the Nevada Southern thou
sands of tons of ore will be sent from
that district.
A late discovery of very great im
portance has been made near the line of
the road; this is an extensive deposit of
nitrate. Chile is at present the source
aflf supply for tbis valuable material; the
quantity shipped last year was about
1,000,000 tons; export value, $45 per
too ; total value, $45,000,000.
The cost of hauling the nitrate to the
present terminus of the Nevada South
ern will be $10 per ton; this is just equal
to the royalty charged by tbe Chilean
government for the privilege of taking
out the nitre in that country. A cheap
supply of this material will be of the
greatest value to Southern California an
a fertilizer.
Just beyond tho ore fields described
are the valleys of Las Vegas. Muddy
river and Beaver dam. These contain
many thousands of acres of the most fer
tile lands, with plenty of water for irri
gation. When reached by rail many
populous and prosperous communities
will rapidly grow up there.
At the mouth of tbe Muddy river,
where it joins the Virgin, is the town of
St. Thomas. Further up tbe Virgin are
ofher settlements, towatd St. Gsorge.
The land is very fertile, the climate de
lightful, and when react ed by rail all
thoße settlements will grew rapidly.
At St. George are copper mines of
great vahie. It costs $25 per ton to
haul the ore to tbe railroad at Milford,
and yet it leaves a net profit of $29 per
ton. There is a smelting furnace at St.
George where the lower grade ore is
smelted. The ore teams going back
from Milford carry coke, charging $15
per ton for the haul; anil yet, with all
these drawbacks, the furnace pays a
good profit. When reached by tho Ne
vada Southern, the output of copper nt
St. George will increase to great propjr
Near St. Gsorge are more than 33,000
head of horned cattle, 0000 to 8000 head
of horses and 25,000 sheep. From 5000
to 6000 head of beef steers were sent
from that locality the present season.
The whole region is admirably suited
.to stock raising and will certainly sup
ply Los Angeles with great quantities of
b*ef and mutton. In addition to
ail the above mentioned products,
building stone of beautiful color and
fine quality abounds along tbe line
of the road ; lime, plaster of Paris and
Bait are all in inexhaustible quantity,
and all will swell tho business of the
road. At Washington, six miles north
of St. George, is a cotton mill, cotton
is grown in the vicinity and large
quantities of goods are made. There is
also a woolen mill at the same place,
and flannels, blankets and other goods
are made of excellent quality. Tho en
terprising spirit of tbe people may be
judged by tlie fact that the machinery
for these mills was hauled 1500 miles
Reruns tbe plains and mountains be
fore the Union Pacific was built. These
few facts will give some idea of the value
to Los Angeleß of the Nevada Siutbern
railway, though a volume oi good
size woald not exhaust the subject.

The Southern Pacific Lays Its
Double Track.
Alameda Street the Scene of the
Sensational Work.
Strategic Movements or the Company.
Ihe Franchise Twenty Years
Old —Further Sensa
tional Kamon.
As exclusively announced in yester
day's Herald would be the case, by
10 o'clock yesterday morning the South
ern Pacific railway company with its
large force of men had double tracked
Alameda street, from Commercial to
tbe viaduct, at College street.
Tbe nocturnal move on the part of the
company gave rise to many rumors, and
when the people read the news in the
Herald at breakfast they tried to recall
tbe granting of Tights for such a pur
pose. The franchise dates back to 1873,
when it was passed, giving the company
"unreserved and unrestricted use" of
the street, from Commercial to San
Fernando streets.
A tit m a year ago tbe Southern Pacific
company made application for a fran
chise to double track Alameda street,
Irom Commercial to Fourth street.
The application was discussed, re
ferred and discussed and referred again,
and was finally referred to tbe present
After some wrangling caussd by oppo
sition of property holders, the council
filed the application.
Tbo company then applied for a fran
chise on tbe Btreet south of Fourth to
tbe city limits, and on February 27,1893,
it was granted. This leaves a gap be
tween Fourth and Commercial streets,
for which the company has no double
track franchise.
Tho laying of the track was certainly
legal if the franchise counts for any
thing. When the residents in tbat
vicinity arose yesterday and found hun
dreds of men engaged in tearing up the
street and laying track, the first thought
of some of them was to legally tin join
the company from continuing the work.
But it whs almost too late; the track
was largely in place.
The evening previous Division Super
intendent Muir had obtained an opinion
from City Attorney McFarl'And tbat
Biic'b a step would be legal, and he wbb
also given a permit by Street Superin
tendent Watson, which was based upon
the attorney's opinion, and authorized
the company to tear up tbe street and
construct the road.
The city attorney's opinion is as fol
lows :
I have examined the old franchise of
tbe Southern Pacific railroad and am of
tbe opinion that tbey bave tue right to
double track from Commercial to San
Fernando streets. I think there is on
opinion on file to that effect which I
give to tbe last council. Yours, etc.,
C. W. McFarland.
Street Superintendent Watson fur
nished the following:
Mr. Muiriß hereby granted permission
to tear up Alameda street from Com
mercial to the viaduct, at College street,
for the purpose of laying railroad track.
D. A. Watson,
Street Superintendent.
Thomas Strohm, chairman of the
board of public works, bearing of the
company's intentions, held a conference
with Chief of Police Glass, who prom
ised assistance should the company
attempt to lay track on any street other
than that over which tbey had a per
fect right. Bat there was no need of
policemen, for the company laid track
only from Commercial street to the
Ex-Councilman Collins was a very ex
cited man when he beard of tbe South
ern Pacific's work. He had opposed all
applications of tbe company for fran
chises over tbe streets. He said had he
known the evening before that the com
pany intended taking such action, be
would bave brought an injunction
against it. He claims the company has
no right to double-track the street, even
though it has a franchise.
Tbe reason given for tbe laying of tbe
track at night was tbat there would
then be lees danger of property owners
objecting to tbe proceedings.
There was a rumor last night tbat the
company would, early this morning, lay
a double track from Commercial to
Fourth Btreet, thus making a complete
double track along Alameda street. As
this would be illegal, but little credence
was put in tbe report.
Tbe franchises upon which the track
was laid are ac follows:
Section 1 of an ordinance granting cer
tain privileges to the Southern Pacific
Railway company, approved September
6, 1872, grants a right-of-way over Ala
meda Btreet; provides that "the said
company shall locate its track or tracks
as near the center of the street as may
be, and the residue of the street to be
used by said city for tbe passage of per
sons and vehicles on each side of the
Tbere ia a further right *of-way ordi
nance, approved July 20, 1873, section
1 of which reads:
"That ail of San Fernando and Mis
sion streets, from their initial to their
terminal points, together with that
Portion of Alameda street between tbe
present depot of the Los Angeles and
San Pedro Railroad company subject to
the provisos, resolutions and conditions
hereinafter contained, be and the same
is hereby set apart from tbe pablic
highways of the city ot Los Angeles to
the unreserved an onrestricted use of
the Southern Pacific Railroad company,
and the right of way over and along the
same, subject as aforesaid, is hereby
granted to said company for the build
ing, maintaining and operating of its
railroad thereupon by and through tbe
track or tracks which said company
Bhall deem it necessary to build along
and over tbe same, and with tbe privil

embankments and excavations upon
eaid streets as shall be found necessary
by the company's engineers to the
proper construction of said railroad and
its connections within said city.
"Provided, that tbe use of said Alame

It is also provided tbat the railroad
shall not interfere with any of th% zan
jus, etc., or street crossings, etc., but
they are not to interfere with the grade
of the railroad company.

Who Will Be tli" Next Division Super
Who will be the next railway mail
superintendent is the question now ex
| citing the minds of postal employes of
; the Pacific coast. The present ooou-
I pant of that office, Mr. Samuel Flint,
' who has held tbe position since 1891,
! will, in the minds of many, I c succeeded
by somebody this next month, his time
having expired. Whether or not he will
be reappointed remains to he eeen. Mr.
Fliut arose from tbe ranks of the postal
clerks and was appointed to the position
of superintendent, vice Jamos
deceased. At that time he occupied tbe
position of assistant.
No president of a campaign club or
prominent Democratic citizen has come
! forward and expressed a desire to be
' come superintendent pf the mail service
of tbe eighth division, for the reason
they are barred by the civil service laws,
which explicitly state that it shall be
tilled from the service. The list of as
pirants is a long one, and includes every
other man in tbe railway mail service.
It probably woald inciude the entire roll
of attaches were it not tbat some of tbe
men affe devoting their time to running
down a few of the places which will be
aftbe dienosal of the newly appointed
I supermini lent.
Prominent among those who are in
> the fight are Thomas J. Ford, the
I present superintendet of the mail
lin the San Francisco post office
j who is a staunch Republican;
j William N. Halbert, now the printer for
tb i railway mail service is also making
a determined effort to secure the prize,
j Halbert has a brother in New York who
!at the last campaign stumped the state
j for Grover. Tben comes William Mc
; Mantis who claims the backing oi Sen-
I White and Congressman Magnire.
Mt. McManus is on the run between
heie and San Francisco. Next to this
c imea Fred Colver and Schoetield, both
of this city. Mr. Colver'e champion ia
Sinator Peff«r of Kansas. While Schoe
tieid'e backing is unknown. S. L. Prich
ard is also among the aspirants for the
office, bis run is from hero to El Pbbo,
At the beginning of tbo Cleveland ad
ministration tbe office was conceded to
Thomas W. Gaffey. Mr. Galley is re
ally one of the best postal clerks in the
service. Hiß appointment to this office
would be an exceedingly popular one,
but be has not as yet allowed his name
to be mentioned in regard to tbe
office. There are many othero who are
also desirous of securing Mr. Flint's
place, some with indorsements that
would reach from here to Santa Monica.
A merry war is on hand and no stone is
left unturned in the way of securing the
Tbe office referred to ia in no way a
sinecure. A salary of $2100 a year and
an unlimited expense account goes with
it, but every dollar obtained has to be
labored for.
The Impressive cleremoules Held Yes
terday Afternoon.
The funeral of Judge W. P. Wade
wan held yesterday afteruoon from bis
late residence, on South Flowor street.
The services were short but very im
pressive. Tbe funeral wbb attended by
a number of societies of which the late
jurist was a member, and also by the
bar association of the city in a body.
The societies attending were Stanton
post No. 55, G. A. R.; Southern Cali
fornia lodge No. 278, Free and Accepted
Masons, and the sir knights of Cesar de
Leon comtnandery No. 9, K. T., and
were commanded respectively rs fol
low*-;. O. .T. Thomas, W. Master W. H.
: Henmans end Eminent Commander J.
H .Martin.
About 1 o'clock the societies met at
their headquarters and joining forces
' marched through the bueineas part of
I the city to Fii'th street and Broadway,
where they got into conveyances and
were taken to the family residence on
South Flower street.
Tbe Bar association also met at 1:30
o'clock and proceeded to tbe residence
on Flower street.
Short services were held at the house
by the Rev. R. Gray, rectorof St. Paul's
Episcopal church. Thare were only a
few intimate friends present at these
services, the various societies remaining
on the outside. A number of elegant
floral pieces were received.
At tbe conclusion of the service on
Flower Btreet, the procession went to
Roßedale cemetery, Mra. Wade being
accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Wesley
Two services were held at the ceme
tery, the farewell Masonic ritual and
the farewell G.A.R. service. The first
ritual was conducted by W. W. Sea
mans, after which the G.A.R. con
cluded the services at the graveside.
The pall-bearers were tbe following
attorneys of the city : Messrs. Murphy,
Clark. Chapman, Monroe, Shaw, Variel
and Hendricks.
The funeral was attended by almost
j every member of tbe bar, as well aa a
large number of prominent citizens.
The Women Writer, of the City Will
Following close upon the establish
ment of the Los Angelea Press club
comes a similar organization of tne
women writers of the city.
, Tbe idea originated at a luncheon
party given yesterday by thorn in honor
of MiBB Adeline Knapp of the San Fran
cisco Call.
Steps were taken at once to establish
a club and Miss Knapp will be looked
upon to carry the proposed organization
to a successful issue, it is proposed to
make tbe club an auxiliary to the
Woman's Press club of San Francisco.
The following ladies were present at
the luncheon: Miss Thompson, Miss
Tessa Kelso, Miss A. B, Freeman, Miss
Hasse and Mrs. Endelein.
At the County Jail.
Charles and Harry Valiant, two boys
from Ballona, were brought to the
county jail last night aud locked up,
charged with malicious mischief.

The police commissioners were all
present yesterday morning at their reg
ular weekly meeting and passed mainly
upon routine matters.
There was an echo about the viola
tion of tbe Sunday saloon ordinance, but
it was only an echo with the faintest
kind of sparring between some of the
Chief Glass reported tiie applications
of A. Stauch and W. It. Luckenbarh ior
positions as special policemen without
pay from the city and they were granted.
Upon a favorable report from Chief
Glass the petitions of William Sachs for
a transfer of saloon license at 1485-7 Mis
pion road from F. Biggy, and of Mareno
it Burgoyne at 221 i Aliso street from
Goudry & Burgoyne were granted.
Joseph Manning was permitted to
withdraw bis application for a saloon
license at 300 North Alameda street.
Adolph Davis's petition for a license
at 300 North Alameda street, and a pro
test Irom Anna Hobbs, were referred to
the chief.
G. W. Arbuckle'a application for a
transfer of license from ArbuckleciCohn,
at 141-3 South Los Angeles street, waß
referred to Chief Glass.
An application for a license by Fred A.
Cooper, at 548 South Main street, was
referred to Chief Glass.
The charges made against Officer Grid
ley by Mrs. Alvarez sere taken up, and
the officer made an explanation of his
action in bringing them to the police
station at night recently. He said he
did not place the woman and her hus
band under arrest, but took tbem to the
police station for the clerk to pass upon
whether or not it was a case of lockup.
At the station the woman insisted
upon being put behind the bars, but her
request wbb refused. The officer claimed
he had done his duty, and tbat in a con
servative way. .
Tbe matter was taken under advise
ment for one week.
The applications of W. A. Bosqui and
E. P. Duggan for appointments on tbe
force under the ordinance increasing the
force were presented and filed.
The charges against Garcia Bros, for
keeping a disorderly saloon at 2134 E»et
First street, were taken up from last
week, and a long petition waß presented
from residents in the neighborhood ask
ing tbe commission not to revoke their
license. Tbe papers were filed and ac
tion was deferred.
Several demands were read and ap
Chief Glass was instructed to make a
report showing the number of special
policemen in tbe city and tbe number
actually in employment as sucb.
Commissioner Bosbyahell called at
tention to tbe fact tbat statements had
been made tbat there was open and no
torious violations of the Sunday-closing
Commissioner Stern said that it was
no doubt true, and referred to a visit of
his to Greoly, Col., wbicli had strict reg
ulations of this kind. He bad not been
in tbe town 20 minutes when he was
asked to take a drink.
Chief Glbbb remarked that there was
less intoxication on Sundays on the city
Btreets proportionately than any other
town of its size.
Commissioner Bradish moved that
tbe sergeants report at the next meet
ing any violation they knew about.
Thiß waß objected to by Commissioner
Weldon, who thought this would not be
courteous to Chief Glass.
Commissioner Bradish replied that
he did not see how that would be co.
He mnrely wanted to get at tbe facts,
and tbe chief naturally could not be as
familiar with details of this nature as
his sergeants.
Commissioner Weldon ineistad that
the chief could give all the information.
An amendment by Commissioner
Stern calling on Chief Glass for a report
on all saloons violating the ordinance
was adopted and the meeting then ad
