The last railway project outlined, that
of an electric railway from Mt. Lowe to
Santa Monica, is said to have substan
tial backing, and to be one of the fruits
of Frof. Lowe's recent visit to the eaßt.

poor taxpayers.
While the Herald does not pretend
to be an agricultural paper, it cannot
'forbear noting l,he fact that an enterpris
ing citizsn of Santa Monica named Mc-
Carthy has rained a head of cabbage in
[the "City by tbe Sea" that weighs six
teen pounds and a half.
This year, as the Herald has Btealily
maintained, our business men will be
obliged to go deep into their pecket
books, and their liberality will be mpaid
a hundred fold. We must make a cred
itable and even an unprecedented ex
hibit either at home or at San Francisco,
and it would be well to do it at both
iplacee. Money expended in thia man
ner is not given away. It is bread cast
on the waters.
The trial of the Olympia yesterday
was a failure, owing to an accident to
the machinery, and will have to be
made over again. That of the Colum
bia, on the Atlantic coaet, wis a great
success, averaging twenty-two and
eight-tenths knotsanhour. Thiaearnsfor
her builders, the Cramps, tho snng pro
mium of $350,000. To one unacquaintad
with tbe way these things are managed
this looks like making rather free with
Uncle Sam's money.
There are more projects maturing in
tho southern counties today that have
lor their object the development of the
resources of this section than at any
time in its history. They comprise
railways, irrigating canals, mines of the
jjreciouß and base metals and a hun
dred other enterprieeo. One of the
'latest undertakings is ti pickle factory.
Few people have any idea of the extent
to which this industry has grown in the
east. One celebrated institution east of
the Rocky mountains ahipa fifteen hun
dred carloads of pickles a year. The
facilities for making the best wine vin
egar in the world exist in unlimited
measure in Los Angideß, and good vine
gar goes a great way in making good
It gives the Hkhald great pleasure to
be able to announce that 100,000 ot the
}80,000 which tho management of the
Nevada Southern Railway Company re
quire to complete tbe difficult grading
near and beyond Vaiulerbilt, have been
already subscribed. Only $20,000 of the
etock remains to be taken, and the com
ang week will probably see the whole
sum subscribed. Those who are dilatory
in improving the opportunity of identi
fying themselves with this splendid
enterprise will find that quicker
and more discerning people have
been before them. The terms offered to
the people of Los Angeles by I'resident
Blake and Vico-Presidenl. Scofield have
never been surpassed by railroad pro
moters of any country. It will be a
proud remembrance to Augelc-iioa that
had the pluck and sagacity to reach
out and make tributary to their city the
varied treasures of the richest mineral
region in the United States. The cheap
coal alone which will be brought to this
city from Lincoln county, Nevada, and
horn southwestern Utah, as tbe road is
extended, will of itself be the potent
factor in new life and growth for tbe
Angel City.
The government of Italy is said to
| have issued a document to Italians ad
vising them not to emigrate to the
United States. This counsel is asserted
to be based on the fact that times are so
bard in thia country that it is better
that the Italians should stay at home.
This will be pleasing intelligence to the
American workingman. For years he
has been subjected to a competition that
has made his lot hard indeed, and that
is largely responsible for tbs evolution
of the tramp guild. For years the law
has been violated by the importation,
in immense numbers, of laborers on
contract trom Italy and Hungary. They
have been brought into the United
States to take the places of American
; workingtnen in the coal and iron
i mines and foundries of Peunsyl
i vania and of the other eastern
I states. While we have heard a great
i deal about the benefits protection has
j been to the Aanrican laborer, there
i has really been no attempt made to
protect tho workingman himself. He
I has been compelled to submit to a cam-
I petition only less galling and destruc-
I tive than his brother workman has en
-1 countered on this coast from the Celes
tial. This is the time of all others for
the passage o! an intelligent and con
servative law, which should have for its
avowed purpose the protection of the
American workingman, and the Euro
pean workingman who is now dom
| iciled in this country, from the in-
I roads of hordes of contract laborers
from abroad. The law might well be
limited to ten years; and, at the expira
tion of that psriod it might be re-en
acted or allowed to drop, as experience
should dictate.
j Just now such a law is scarcely re
quired, and for a reason which is not
understood by mo9t people. The in
dustrial depression which exists in ths
United States is very well understood
abroad; and, as a result, the immigra
tion of woiking people has almost
ceased. But the recuperative powers of
tbe United States are as vast as they are
j instant. The country will quickly pass
[ through tbe present crisis, as it has the
many which preceded it, aud ihe con
juncture is thus favorable for the enact
ment of a wise law which would give
American labor—meaning by this term
all laborers who are now in the United
States—time to recover from tbe disas
ters of a peculiar and destructive com
petition. There would be absolutely
nothing proacriptive in such a pro
gramme. It would attack no rights that
have accrued to any man, and would
give the United States tims to breathe.
The greatest obstacle in tbe way of
San Francisco's greatness is the great
Sierra Nevada range of mountains. Like
a mighty wall nearly two miles in height
this range rises up as if to cut off tbe
bay of San Francisco from direct com
munication with the east. This lofty
barrier stretches from the Columbia
at the north almost to Las Angeles in
the eoutb, a distance of something less
than a thousand miles. It is actually
insuperable for communication nearly
all the year, except at a few points, and
even these can only be surmounted witb
the greatest difficulty. Building a rail
load over it at such a point actually in
volved the construction of forty or fifty
miles of snowsheds, through which tne
road had to run. This was a new feature
in railroad engineering, and it is cafe to
say the work would never have been un
dertaken but for the backing of a power
ml government, rendered under the im
pulse of a gigantic war; much like that
which impelled the great Napoleon to
cross the Alps. These long Bnow houses
were expensive to build in the first
place, and are costly to maintain. They
are, moreover, positively dangerous, be
ing liable to be broken down by snow
slides at any time, and being fearfully
subject to conflagrations.
From thia latter cause trains of pas
sengers are not (infrequently delayed on
the mountain side for days, if not for
weeks. For many years communication
overland was confined to this route
from sheer necessity. There was then
no line opened by way of Oregon, and
and none south by way of Los Angeles.
Tbe route by the anowsbeda was tbe
only reßort.
Thia huge mountain barrier must al
ways remain a great obstacle to com
mercial intercourse between San Frau
cieco and the Atlantic seaboard. This
is unfortunate, since tbe extra cost of
hauling freight and passenger trains
over it ia a very considerable item in
railroading. It ia equivalent to a very
much longer haul over a level, or com
paratively level road, and the distance
overland is practically very much in
creased thereby. How much this in
crease actually amounts to it will re
quire engineering skill to determine,
but it is thought tbat the distance
between San Francisco and Salt Lake i»
practically doubled by this tremendous
lift. This remark has reference only to
the ordinary expenses of operating the
road, and not to that other extraordi
nary cost of keeping up the road und
the snow houses.
The nature of this obstacle ia euch
that it can never be obviated; a long
etunnel might reduce the difficulty Born-
what, but that ia an expedient not likely
to be resorted to, on account of the ex
pense and trouble attending such an en
So far as <:oramunica*,ion between San
Francisco and the country immediately
beyond the Sierras ia concerned, the
anowabed route will continue to be used,
but when it cornea to landing freight on
this coast, to be transported across the
continent, sonic more favorable nlaoe for
the business will be sought. Such a
place is Port Los Angeles, than which
there is no mure favorable locality on
the western coast of this continent, north
of Central America, for such tran-ship
ment. There is no mountain harrier
back of Los Angeles, and the distance
across to the Atlantic waters is vastly
less there than by any other route on
our own soil, nor is that distance in
creased in effect by heavy gradients of
the railroad. The route is a short and
an easy one, and cannot long remain
It is quite unfortunate tbat anything
should have occurred to interrupt the
| pleasant prospect that we had entered,
|in California, on an era of genuine ssc
| tional good will, in which tho southern
i counties would pledge to the central
aud northern counties a hearty amity by
the erection of a splendid building in
the midwinter fair, and the sending to
the "Sunset City" of a magnificent as
sortment of our special products. When
tbe people of the southern counties
made up their minds to do everything
in their power to contribute to the suc
cess of the midwinter fair, they sup
posed, of course, tbat they would be al
-1 lowed to reap from their enterprise all
< the benefits which excursions from San
1 Francisco to this section would nat
-1 urally bring in their train. An
j unexpected obstacle has interposed
| itself to this natural hope in the
j fact that the Southern Pacific rail
-1 way has shown an indisposition to con
: ceding the stop -over privileges demand;
j cd. It is to be hoped tint tbe raiiway
■ people will reconsider this determina
tion. Should they fail to do so, how
ever, there is no doubt of the resolve of
our people to withdraw from the enter
prise altogether and to consecrate all
their efforts on getting up a magnificent
local exhibit. That this can be made a
memorable success admits of no doubt.
The people of the east have enjoyed the
varied and delightful features of the
Columbian world's fair at Chicago, and
those of them who shall come to this
coaßt will undoubtedly be interested
rather in the distinctive expositions of
our products than iv liotening to echoes
from the Windy City. We heartily
trust tbat the discordant notes which
have been beard of late will disappear,
and that there will be no impediment
to tbe concentration of all our energies
on the Sunset City. The disposition in
the southern counties is perfect if this
element of dissension is eliminated.
Our esteemed contemporary, the
Chronicle, occasionally takes up a posi
tion that, to say the least, is peculiar.
Some time ago some poor wretches es
caped from Sagbalien island, in an open
boat, and were picked up by the captain
of an American whaler. These peo
ple had faced death and starva
tion to escape irom the intolerable pri
vations of this new Russian peual col
ony. Any one with bowels—nay, a sin
gle gut—of compassion would be inclined
to pity these Btranded waife, but not so
tbe Chronicle. It wanted them handed
over to the Russian government, which,
doubtless, would itself have beeu
ashamed to receive them, and abuses

There was an interruption yesterday
to the programme of the capture of
trains by the tramp fraternity. It ap
pears tbat a railway contractor in Ari
zona telegraphed to an employment
agency in Los Angeles that he could use
forty wen, and suggested that they could
beat their way out to the "sun-kissed
land." They made their way out to
; Colton on the Southern Pacific and
I walked to a station on the South
ern California road, where they
; camped to await the arrival of a
train on that road. They were inter
viewed by Sheriff Booth and dissuaded
from taking the train. The next day
they walked up to Cajon station on tho
mine road and held a train. Sheriff
Booth aud Detective Burns, with a
poßse arrived, however, and captured
thirty of them, taking them into San
Bernardino, where they wiil be prose
cuted for trying to beat their way with

The Philharmonic orchestra gave the
firat concert of ita second season last
night at the Grand Opera house, under
the direction of Mr. A. J. Stainm.
The concert was given before a very
large audience. Nearly every seat was
filled down stairs and there was a good
attendance in the balcony. It was a
very appreciative audience as well as a
I fashionable, one and tbe concert in every
respect was a brilliant success.
The numbers given by the orchestra
displayed superb finish and were of suf
ficient variety to bring out the artistic
excellence of the members.
The especial features of the concert,
aside from the fine orchestration, were
the violin concerto by Mr. J. Bond Fran
cisco and tho singing of Miss Jeanette J.
Mr. Franc ; sco's mastery of the violin
renders him a very conspicuous ad
dition to any musical event, and his
ttfort laet night added one more to his
many previous triumphs. Theaudience
| was loath to allow him to resume hia
j place without an encore, but he did not
I play again, much to the regret of all.
I His selection was as charming as it was
difficult, and he fairly made his superb
I instrnmeut talk.
It is not too much to say that Miss
{ Wilcox added most materially to the
success of tho occasion. She waa re
called after each of her two numbers.
She sings most exquisitely. Her mezzo
scprano is rich aud sympathetic, and
her method and vocalization clear as a
hell. She was at her best, perhaps, in
Henschel's How Fair Is the World, but
all her numbers were so delightful tbat
it is difficult to contrast them.
The programme was as follows:
Jubel. overture. Yon Weber—Orchestra.
First symphuuie, op. 11 O minor, Mendels
sohn, allegro di molto, andante, allegro mol

Los Angeles Theater—No artist on
the American stage has done so much
towards giving a complete picture,
scenic as well as artistic, as has Miss
Davenport with her splendid production
of Saruou'B Cleopatra. Mies Davenport
has made the role of tbe ancient queen
of Egypt something that stands pre-em
inent as a bit of characterization. Miss
Davenport is perfect herself, with her
restleßS, energetic artistic nature, and
from time to time has improved not
alone herself as an artist, but has also
done much towards making productions
in which she is interested, something
remarkable from a dramatic standpoint.
One does not often see so perfect a per
formance as that given by Miss Daven
port in Cleopatra. The company is
made up of the best material tbat can
possibly be gathered in America, and it
goes without Baying that the perform
ances during the five nights and Satur
day matinee, commencing Monday, will
draw crowded houses.
They Adopt the IJotaila or Management

The representatives of the various dis

California held an important executive
meeting at the chamber of commerce
yesterday morning and afternoon. The
meeting was a continuance of a similar
gathering held in Riverside one week
ago. At that time a special committee
waß appointed to draw up the details of
the plan of management for the boards
of exchange to follow.
That committee presented its report
yesterday. It sets forth in detail the
general plan as layed down in certain
articles that were adopted by the orange

divulged, for obvious reasons, by any
of those present.
Mr. H. B. Cbamblin of Riqerside was
on the committee. He haa been most
instrumental in perfecting the present

and has probably given tbe subject
more study than any other person in
this section. He wan seen by a Herald

Work on the Interior Fittings Rapidly
Progressing—Not a Mere Jew
elry Store—Some of the De

Be Included.
Work hs.s been rapidly progressing during
the past week on the interior fit tings of the
handseme jewelry establishment of M. German,
on South Spring street, between Third and
Fourth, to which reference hat already been
made In these columns. The artistic counters,
showcases and furnishings arc lv place, with a
large stock of va uable goods, lnclnding tome
tasteful engravings, elegantly framed. It la
evident, from what may be seen already, that
this is de lined to be one of the show places of
Los Angeles.
Mr. German hss exercised good judgment In
tho seleetioa of a location for his business It
la convenient of access to the best residence
section ol tbe city, and just a little south of tbe
business center, which is moving steadily iv
ibis directum, from day- to day.
It should be unddrntrod by the public that
