The factory handled during tho present season of 1893 100!) tons of beeis per day, and hare 1
from 600 to 900 tons per day coming iv continuously for the. entire campaign, covering a period !
of nearly four uioulit". It Is proposed now to increase tho tanaclty of the factory by the erec
tion of an additional liuliding aad machinery to suit tho requirements of Increasing prodnc- .
tlou. The roturns for the present campaign have been a total yield of over 15,000,000 pounds
of sugar, which have b»eu shipped out as crude sugar to ba refined elsewhere.
Under adirect and specific contract between Mr. flird and tbe Chino Valley Beet Sugar com- )
pnnv, a corporation which instituted aud operates tho I'.eot Sugar industry, they agreed to pur- <
chs»;! from Mr. (iird or his successors all Ihe beets grown ou the ranch for years to come, and at
theprose nt date, abont November 1, 181)H, before the commencoireat of the next season, a
lined price is established that the factory will pay for the beets at maturity next season. This '
insures the planter in the market for his crop, mid with the price th«t is Hxed, befoie he takes
any risk in tho matter or matel tho first move towards turning over the grjuud.
Possibly there is no other branch of industry where calculations for future results oan be
made so readily or so correctly calculated upon, aud returns realized iv so short a time as in the.'
ultivatlon of the Sugar Beet under such auspices.
While speakiDg particularly in regard to the Important industry of beet growing for tha
mauufuctuie of sugar, estimates oi general fruits should uot bs lost sight of, as a great portiod
ol thelandis especially adapted to
Deciduous Fruits and Deciduous Trees.
Oraugo groves planted on portions of tho Ranch are coming forward, aud olives, tigs, aprl
cot», prunes, pomegranates and berries, in fact California fruits of all kinds, seem indigenous
to the soil. It is also demonstrated that corn, barley, wheat, and in fact all the cereals an*
vegetables, flourish in thia soil and attain a high degree of perfection.
The townsite of chino, located at a convenient point with reference to all portions of the
ranch, 1» a flourishing California town, with telegraph, telephone and express offices, schools
and churches. Means of communication aud transportation are ample. The Houthern Pajifla
railroad runs ita main line direct into Chino, and Is four miles distant from Pomona and Onta
rio, on the main overland line, and in addition Is the proposed extensiou which is now assured
from Pomona, through chino, to South Riverside and Elslnore.

vatlou of the Kugar Beet, which insures a profit; l. r > tons is an aveiage crop, but 20 tons is not
unusual: which is received by the factory at a fixed price of $1.50 per ton, which during this
present season of 1803 has averaged the grower from ifH5 to *00 per acre net, and clean above ,
