DIVIDED OPINIONS. Opinion in tbe financial world has probably never been more equally di vided than now in the United States. Every phase of temperament has its representative. The sanguine think tbat tbe passage of any kind of a tariff will result in phenomenal prosperity, while the atrabilous individual is of opinion that it does not lie in tbe wis dom of man to devise any sort of a meas ure that would give relief to the most remarkable crisis ever known on the American continent. Doubtless the most enlightened view of this matter lies between tne extremes mentioned. Stocks of goods bave been so thoroughly exhausted in all lines, both of foreign importation and domestics, that for sev eral months after the proclamation of a new tariff, or, after it has been thor oughly ascertained that we are to fall back npon the existing tariff regime, trade in all lines cannot help recovering. There will inevitably be a revival in our dealings both nt horns and abroad, and in the mere effort to partially supply the gaps left in business during the past fiftsea months, there cannot fail to be a period, indefinite in its duration, in which a factitious prosper ity will make amends to some extent for the unparalleled industrial prostration of o'-er a year. It in heartily to be hoped that this will come through a measure of tariff reform and revision which shall involv* Urge admission of the raw material of manufactures to tbe free list, because then, after the first upheaval, when it comes to slowing down, we Bhall have made our depart ure under wuoleaome auspices, and we shall be merely slackening our speed, instead of again disorganizing our indus tries. Those who hays taken a roseate view of the progress of tariff legisla tion nave promised us tbat the new tar iff bill would reach the president by the middle of June. This waa indeed a sanguine calculation. When the senate shall have completed its work a confer ence of the committees of tbe two bouses will involve further delays, and, unless there ie great taot upon tbe part of the coufereea on both Bidas, we may consider ourselves fortunate if we shall be able to read the details of the new tariff by the middle of July. OLIVE ORCHARDS. A correspondent writes to ns asking what is the befit variety of olives to plant aud what the best soil on which to plant them, in reply we would say that there are endless varieties of olives gro-vn in this state, and that some spe cies Beam to be better adapted to certain localities than otheis. Olives should be grown without irri gation, if possible, for which reason the lands near the coast seem to ba best fitted for the olive industry. Kxpsri ence in this neighborhood has developed tbe fact that the Sierra Madre foothills produce tbe best oranges, while the sterile cliffs next to the sea produce the greatest amount ol oil in proportion to the weight of olives. Elwood Cooper, of Santa Barbara, leads tbe whole state in thio industry, and Frank Kimball, of National City, is not far from being sec ond in the race. The recent experiments made nnder supervision of Professor Hiigard of the state university, would almost settle the question as to where olives can be best grown. On the rich bottom lands, a greater yield of oil waß obtained, but these oils were more difficult to clarify and also showed a disposition to coagu late at the lira;, approach of frosty weather. This waa particularly true of the oils made from the varieties known as Oblonga and Rubra. The variety cullod Picholena, though producing a smaller berry than most others, has ita good qualities, for it ie a bardy tree and is but little affected by the early froete. Yet it is compara tively unfit for pickling and even the quality of oil produced by it is inferior to the Rubra, the On'ouga and the Ne- Vftdilla. The chief objection to the Ne vadilla is its sensitiveness to the approach of frost, in which respect it ia about aa bad as tbe i'eudulina and tbe Nigeriaa, Taking one consideration with an other, it is extremely doubtful if any variety of olive stands tbe teat as well as the Mission variety, introduced here by the priests who founded our Catholic missions. Those priests came from Spain, which has been an olive-grow ing country for centuries, and they evi dently knew the many good qualities of that variety before they left their native shores. Mr, Elwood Cooper sent a case of hia oil ont to the Melbourne exhibi tion of 1888, where it reoeived tbe first prise; and, after being submitted to the severest chemical test, was pronounced by the Australian judges to be the best oil they bad ever eeen or tasted. Mr. Cooper gives a preference to the Mission olivea over any other variety; and, aa be haa spent nearly forty yeara In ex periments in tbia direction, his expe rience ehould be worth something to new beginners in thia induatry. As to where trees can be obtained, there should be but little difficulty in that quarter. There are large nurseries of these trees at Pomona, Riverside, Santa Barbara and National City, from which tbe intending purchaser can take bia pick. Tbe olives abonld be preased for oil as soon as they become thoroughly red, not waiting for them to tarn black, at which period tbe olein decreases and the atearine property beoomes aug mented. Again, we cay tbe coast region is the place for olive orchards. The climate ia more favorable, the froata be ing lesa; and if tbat is not an induce ment sufficient, tbe pricea of land along the coaat are generally cheaper. Some say the whole coaat, from Monterey to San Diego, will be one continuous orohard of olive trees. A DARK CLOUD OF WAR. Ever lines tbe "Debacle.'* the pbraie with which Zola dsioribed the oatas trophe of Sedan, it has been tbe iasbion to regard tbe Empiror Napoleon ill. as a pin headed man, with neither ability nor good tiualitieiof any kind. It ii too much the fashion of the public to indulge in too maeh adulation when a man is ia the zenith of hit for tune and to throw mud at him when be iidown. Thm the splenetic judgment of Victor Hugo baa been generally ac cepted as ttie true estimate of Loun Napoleon that be waa, compared to the great Bonaparte, as the Augustuioi of the later Roman empire to tbe Augnstui of Octavius Cesar. This is, in ail prob ability, a highly strained and unjust verdict upon tbe bast emperor ol the French. Soma of tbe diplomatic per formances of that ruler were really re markable, and bis crowning achieve ment was tba bringing about of a cordial rapprochement between Francs and Eng land, No one ever expected to sse tbe legions of Franoa and Eugland fighting shoulder to moulder against a common foe, either in tbe Crimea or anywhere else, and yet tbli mirauie of diplomacy wis brought about by tbe ex priionsr of Ham. Strangest of ail was it to seeQuesu Victoria affix the gn- M to the knee of Napoleon 111. at tba cele bration of tbe completion of the great work oi building tbe harbor oi Cher bourg, wbich was almost as much an English as a French demonstration. Those things occnr to one's memory in view of the marked estrangement which has lately come about between tbe two countries, beginning in Asia and culmi nating in Alrica, A noted European politician tome time ago nave utterance to the opinion that, contrary to all ex pectation, tbe next great war would grow out of complications in tbe I'ark Continent. Tbii idea was not regarded as at all serious, but in tbe light of re cent events there eeems to have been some ground for tbe expectation. The recent treaty made by England and the Free Congo elate, and which gives the former power an uninterrupted territory from Cairo to Capetown, is by no means satisfactory either to France or ttermany. Tbe language ol Monsieur Hah iteana, tbe French minister of foreign affairs, in tbe chamber of deputies, ieaituoat war like. Lie call! the action of England a breach of tbe peace. In such an inflammable body ai the tower bouse ot the French legislature, it is not difficult to create a crisis. Tbe German emperor is also said to be not a little irritated by the ag grenive conrie of England. To the dis interested observer, not the least pe culiar feature of the matter is the tool that tbe African himself otints lor nothing in tbe episode. Tbe chief n'l'.o wbicb the black man In expected to play in suob transactions is to allow himself to be mowed down by rapid bring machine guvs. There was no end of outcry when the United States in sisted upon holding several millions ol tbe negro race in slavery, but when it comes to tbe wholesale murder and looting of tbe inhabitants of an entire continent, everything appears to be ac cepted as in the natural urder of things. 80 bellicose is the attitude ol both France and England in this matter tbat it would seem to require unusual diplomatic ikill to avoid hostilities, A brush between thn two countries would be of absorbing interest, ai it would tell tbe world what it bas long bean anxious to know, and tbat is tbe value ol the enormous irou aud steel monsters tbat constitute the modern navy, and of the prodigioui guns which have co ixr only been used upon targets si I ■•>■ against banks of sand. Many doubts would be resolved by such a war. Thk people of Los Angelea should en ter an earnest protest against consolidat ing the customs collection districts oi Los Angeles and San Diego with that of Han Francisco. Tne pretense of econ omy in this matter ie ridiculous, a fact which has been very clearly shown iv a letter written by the secretary of the San Diego chambar of commerce to Mayor Carlson, of that city. We quite the following statistics collected by that gentleman: The coast line of Bnn Diego aii.l Angeles ii about 300 railte looi: the purpose of comparuqa take tbaiaini distance along the Atlantic Doaat mi I wi find tbe followini! tigursii published ... the treasury dnpurttnent for the fiscal year ending June 30, lSllj; From .11 -bermarlo (Edeutou), North Carolina, to (Jeiirgetowit.

San Diego and Loe An gelea diatricta employ 23 persons and collected for tbe year mentioned the aum of $211,683.45 at a coat of collection of $0 276 for each dollar of revenue col lected. Some of these figures look Incredible, but tbey have doubtleaa been carefully collated. Such cheese paring eonomy ac baa been propoaed by the official of the treasury department who lately vie ited Los Angeles and San Diego should be severely condemned by the chamber of commerce, tbe board of trade, and by all citzena who have any influence in W'sahington. We have been inclined to regard the Chronicle as a uniformly partisan journal, and have thought tbat it car ried its partisanship to the extent of seeing no good in its opponent* or pos sibility of evil in its political associates. In this last idea we confess that we are mistaken, at least for once. Sunday's Chronicle gives Senator Perkins a thor ough scoring for dodging a vote on the sugar schedule. This was naughty on the part of Perkins, but we are afraid that his laobes in this respect might bave passed nnreproved by the "live paper" if the county of Orange had not the dsy before the appearance of its strictures passed a resolution endorsing the ex-governor as its choice for United States senator in the event of the Re publicans carrying the next legislature. Just at this stage of onr politics Mr. M. H. de Young is doubtless much more sensitive than usual to any backsliding on tbe part of tbe "sailor boy." The Los Angeles Consolidated Elec tric Railway company instituted pro ceedings in the superior oourt yesterday to compel tbe Main Street and Agri cultural Park Railroad company to allow joint use of ita tracks on Main street be tween Ninth and Tenth streets. AMUSEMENTS Los Anqklks Theater. —Sandow and the excelleat Trocadero Vaudeville com pany Hppeared laat night to a large and delighted audience. The company has almost entirely changed its programme from that of ite recent visit, so that vir tually it gives a new entertainment. Miss Yeamena-Titus has wisely left tbe Halleo &. Hart company, and ap pears in a number of most enjoyable enn.'i and recitations. In her imitation of a child singing she ie certainly inim itable, and brought down the bouse in all of her appearances. She is one of the noit charming, verestile women on the Stage, and that she was appreciated highly waa shown by tbe insistence with which she was recalled time and time again. Elsie Adair, the bewitchingserpentine dancer, was charming in her indescrib ably brilliant dunce, and all of tbe clever specialists were heartily received.

The company will appear again thii evening, ♦»a Grand Opera House.—The good-sized andteuce which assembled at tbe opera hvuse last night waa entertained by a very superior performance by the stock company. There was a curtain raiser celled Forgotten, the production of Mr. Ctiarles Kent, who took the leading part of Leonard Sharp in admirable style. Miss X Louise Jones and Foley Parker and Walter flodgea comprised the other participants. It is a sketch of a for- I gotten actor, the canße ol his life's sor | row, the consolation afforded by his af -1 fectionate daughter, and the final j smothering of the embers of genius winch had been kept alive though his head had whitened. The lines are exceedingly well written and the little curtain raiser was a success. It was followed by the entire company in me Player. Lawrence Hanley was in excellent lorm, and in the part of Gurtavus Brooke, the player, received quite an ovation. The company was admirably cast for the entertaining traKi-comedy. The parts fitted the respective members like gloves and it was an exceptionally smooth perform ance, showing the strength of the or ganization better than anything it has done, Gaorge Osbonrne was a capital Banker Clifford, and Mrs. Minnie I lianccOneus displayed much veraatil | ity aa Ada, besides presenting a most j ciiarming picture in her becoming gowns. R. Pejton Oarter as Alberty !

The New Economists Tackle the Tariff Question. Some Pointed Resolutions Which Were Offered. Pi-action! Politic Dlsoassed—Addrase by William 8. Cr»ifhi.« aad Brief Beaanrke by Otkere. A large and Terr intelligent audience attended the single tax meet ng at Unity obnrch last evening. Alter an nouncing the donation to the club by Robert £. Tener ol a complete set of the issues oi tbe Standard, President Ralph E. Hoyt laid that while California was more highly favored by nature than any other portion of the United States, it was one of the most tax-burdened and monopely-cnreed states in all the list. Tbe natural conditions in California were unequaled in their capacity to supply human Wants; but tbe man made conditione were in many respects deplorable. It was high time for a change in the matter of taxation, so that tbe cost of government wonld fall on monopoly instead ol bur dening industry, as now. Local option in taxation waa the first step to be taken, and tbe people sbould not lose any more time in taking it. Ia many of (be eastern etatea tbe sentiment in favor of local option waa rapidly grow ing, and eenaible men of all partlee were advooating it. California waa behind even Alabama in tne matter of tax re form. In tbat sontbern state, for years resting nnder the curae of chattel slav ery, a step toward industrial freedom was recently taken. At the last session of the legislature a law was passea per mitting counties to exempt from taxa tion all new industries, such exemption to continue for any period not exceeding 10 years from their establishment. At tbe election next August the peo ple of that state will vote on a proposition for local option in tax ation for school purposes, and there is every probability that the maasure will be adopted. No reasonable man in Ala bama, California, er anywhere else, can object to allowing the people of each connty or mnnicipality to decide what kind of property shall be taxed and what shall be exempt from taxation. Mr. W. 8. Creigbton was selected as tbe opening epsaker of th« evening, and, like all good single taxers, Mr. Creigh ton is always ready with tax reform am munition, and tbereiore "opened tba ball" with the following resolution: Resolved, That tbe membeis of tbe Single Tax club of Los Angeles will sup port no candidate for a state or federal office who does not commit himseli un equivocally to the doctrine that a tariff upon imports is a vicious and inequita ble system of taxation, and cau have no justification for its imposition save as a temporary agency for gathering neces sary government revenue: that a tariff framed in recognition of the principle of protection is. to the extent ol such recog nition, an unmixed evil and a curse, and b..tß no justification eitber in science, public expediency or morals. After considerable discussion, partici fl tt ICH 111 V» » . -.O 10. — — - », Creigbton, Williama, Finlayaou and Levi, the resolution was adopted by the audienoe, ac was also the following, of fered by Mr. Oonkling: Resolved, Tbat the Single Tax cluh of Los Angeles will do all within its power to induce the political parties in this state to udopt a plank iv their platforms favoring an amendment to our state con stitution providing for local option in taxation. Mr. Creigbton alao addressed the meeting substantially as follows: 'There is an old sophistical saying that 'the truth is that which ia boldly assarted and plausibly maintained.' The Republican press of tliia city and of the whole country is now engaged in strenu ously asserting and clamorously pro claiming that by reason ol the dill stents tariff tinkering on the cart of tbe Demo cratic majority at Washington the coun try is plunged into a sea of trouble— 'swimming in the Boup,' co to speak; tbat the only proper way to tinker a tariff is to tinker it up, never to tinker it down. There is more than a modicum of truth in the charge that tinkering with our high old federal tariff always affects enterprise disastrously. There never was a time in the history of this oountry when the tariff was not the fruitful aud potential source of trouble to onr people, whether it was being raised or lowered, or was Bimply riding our neoks, secure and undisturbed, like Sindbad's old man of the aea. But I am aware, Mr. Presi dent, that there are thouaands of states men in thie country who recognize the inherent defects of the tariff system, and would like to see it superseded by some more equitable Bystem ot taxation, but they are yet unacquainted with any better agency for gathering government revenues. Pei-ding tbe education of such men in the gospel according to St. George, we must not withhold from them our support. But. air, a Demo cratic protectionist would have no con sideration at our hands. His attitude is utterly untenable. His mental vision is too oblique and his moral perceptions are too obtuse —from the standpoint of a single taxer—for bim to distinguish betwoen meum and tuutn. The time will come, Mr. President, when protec tionism will be accounted no more than embezzlement. We single taxers have diognosed the malady ol tbe public patient, and we come forward witn an adeqaate remedy. Oar treatment is not superficial and empirical; we go to tbe heart of the matter. We will not turn aside to treat au exerna, which is only one manifesta tion of the disease. To abolish land monopolization ie to conquer the world for the children of mon and Becure the comfort of millions yet to be. Soldiers snlieted in ttiis groat quest, we cannot afford to scatter our forces. We must move in aolid phalanx right in the mid die of the road. A resolution was offered by Mr. Creighton. to the effect that single tax era shonld solely attack the policy of raising revenue by taxes on importatione. leaving other financial questions alone. This was blso discussed, but finally laid over for future action. At the meeting next Monday night Miss Kelso, the city librarian, will ad dress the audience. Ouontr Delinquent Tex List.
