HUTCHISON'S OBSERVATIONS
Tbey Cover a Wide Range ol Topics
This Week
Starts Out With Huntington's Dexterity la
Securing Government Appropriations
and Ends With a Riparian Case
The ease, grace and dexterity with which
Huntington secures huge governmental
appropriations for deep-sea harbors in im
possible places constitute the most spirit
uello of the late manifestations.
"Deep-sea harbor" is good, especially
when the phrase is applied to the wild ocean
In the vicinity of Santa Monica. If we
have money to throw into the open sea,
why not throw it in at some spot where
Huntington is not landlord and porter and
carrier and guide and keeper of the only
refreshment stand and dog-in-the-manger
—all rolled into one gluttonous, cormorantic
land-sea beast that preys on innocent and
harmless gulls?
Huntington and his late purchases in the
shape of congressional committees should
be sunk with the first foundation stone for
the deep-sea harbor. Any committee that
would give this suffering city such a scurvy
den as it has for a government building for
100,000 people, who are howling and beg
ging and praying for accommodation, then
give the man Huntington *3,000,000 to
improve his own water-front depot at the
long wharf —any such committees should
be hanged, and should be drawn up in
stantly without tiuarter.
For such villains:
We are but stuff that schemes are made of,
And our little herd arc rounded up like sheep.
Speaking of the postoißce building re
minds me that the aforesaid shanty is
becoming a nifjlu resort for vicious females
and the class of men they look for. A
tallow candle or two should be kept burn
ing on the northwest corner thereof, to
dispel the darkness wherein the beasts
lurk at night, to the shame of decent people
who are compelled to pass that shameful,
shameless way.
People who happen to be in the central
Eart of the city and wish to journey to East
os Angeles are becoming expert at chang
ing cars. Tiie changes at First and Com
mercial and Arcadia streets are not enough,
other changes might be made at Court and
Market streets. There is also room to
change a time or two more on Main street.
Within a few months we may be able to
walk the whole distance for a change and
to save time.
The owners and abettors of the huge
dogs that are allowed to range about the
sidewalks of Spring street and the stores
adjacent thereto should be chained up witli
the dogs appertaining to the "dog-gone"
people. Every few days some innocent
person is mangled by some biped's quad
ruped.
Some people believe that the contractor,
Furrey,who has the contract for the plumb
ing alleged to go in the new school houses
will have his work done within another
year. The reprehensible fashion with
which lie manages to bring discomfort to
5000 of the school children of this city for
month after month would not be tolerated
in a contract with any private citizen out
of the lunatic asylum.
Thousands of people do not know that
because of his dilatory processes their
children are compelled to put up with
makeshift shanties in the place of decent
cdosots that were contracted to be finished
nearly four months ago.
In all probability the people of this city
are compelled to endure the presence of
more vicious boys of sixteen or eighteen
years who would hang about the public
schools for the purpose of inflicting their
company upon such boys and girls of the

SCIENCE ASSOCIATION.
An Interesting Lecture on the Los Aageles
and Sespe Oil Fields.
At the meeting of the Southern Cali
fornia Science association, in the as
sembly room of the chamber of com
merce, last evening, Mr. W. L. Watts of
the state mining bureau, who has for
some months been engaged, under the
direction of the state mineralogist, In
investigating the petroleum Industry in
the southern part of the state, delivered
an interesting and instructive lecture
on the Los Angeles and Sespe oil fields.
The lecture was illustrated by a series
of line stereopticon views, as well as
diagrams showing the various geologi
cal formations of the oil-bearing rocks
and the structural conditions under
which petroleum is found in California.
There were a large number of oil men in
at tendance, and the speaker was closely
followed from the beginning to the end
of his interesting talk.
After carefully reviewing the geologi
cal conditions of the local oil Held and
defining its boundaries, Mr. Watts said
that so far as developments have shown
the Los Angeles wells derive their oil
from a stratum of sand carrying about
10 per cent of oil. that this stratum la
about forty feet thick and has an area
of about 4,000,000 feet. This stratum
would contain in round figures about
2,xr>0,000 barrels of oil. A careful canvass
shows that 728,695 barrels, or about one
tourth of the theoretical total was pro
duced in 1895, and no inconsiderable
amount was produced in 1894. Just how
much more of the remaining 2,000,000
barrels could be produced Mr. Watts
was not prepared to say, though wells
Will probably continue to produce in
paying quantities for some time to
come. The speaker thought that it
might be worth while trying to discover
011 at a greater depth than has yet been
leached, though he admitted that an
examination of the limited outcrops in
dicated no such body of sand as the one
now being penetrated, and it was shown
that in the deeper wells, say over 1000
feet, water had been struck, which it
was difficult to keep out of the wells at
that depth in a soft formation. Mr.
Watts said that it did not appear that
the outlook to the west of the present
Held was very encouraging, though it
was possible that wells yielding small
amounts of oil might be obtained. To
the eastward the outlook, he said, is a
little better. There are now, he said, 339
wells In the Los Angeles district.
After his paper on the Los Angeles
field Mr, Watts gave an Interesting re
view of the Sespe fields, illustrated by
some very fine views.
Previous to the lecture on motion the
name of the association was changed

SPRING STREET NOTE-BOOK
S. B ROSS
Nature has provided, in her vast labra
tory, material for tbe gratification of each
and every sense of her human subjects,
and California was not neglected when she
dispensed them among the divizions of the
earth bounded by latitude and longitude.
Here we have the blue sky and the clear at
mosphere which enables ua to view with
uninterrupted vision the mountains, ocean
and valleys, from points scores of miles
distant from the point of observation, the
intervening space softening rugged outlinea
and the general effect, and adding beauty
to that which is already endowed with ro
mance and historical association. The fra
grant and brilliantly variegated floral
wealth of this favored land, together with
its vegetable luxuriance, are of perennial
character, and we revel in the lavish dis
play of beauty and comfort, without real
izing the exceptional solicitude the univer
sal mother has displayed towards us.
The sense of smell is perhaps the least
important to mankind. Of course, if
robbed of thia necessary functional pos
session, we would wonder what life was
worth living for. But allow it to be
whispered that there are certain reflec
tive moments when a good many people in
Los Angeles And the sense whicli pervades
the nasal department of the constitution
an odd member, which could be tempo
rarily dispensed with.
A stroll down Main street, or Spring
street, below Third, after dark, or once
more, a venture in the neighborhood of
Second street and Broadway, will furnisli
large striking evidence of the fact that the
human family possesses the ability to in
vent smells which would make nature
pause and grow pale with despair, or take
on the complexion of a sea-sick novi
tiate.
A tamale wagon contains in condensed
form more war-like material for the de
struction of olfactory air castles than any
other nuisanoe ever invented through hu
man ingenuity. This detestable institu
tion plants itself in the restaurant neigh
borhood and the complacency induced by
the internal possesaion of a decent dinner
turns to sack cloth and ashes th» moment
the owner collides with the odoriferous cy
clone. A slaughter house in torrid weather
is not a circumstance; the cheese which
has made Germany famous is Oriental in
cense when placed beside it for compara
tive purposes; the reputation of the skunk
becomes a foul slander upon the escutch
eon of the playful and inoffensive quadru
ped, whose worst fault is the legend about
its deceitful appearance on certain oc
casions and the breath of an Italic garlic
fiend takes flight in shame along with the
steerage atmosphere of an emigrant vessel
just unloading at Castle Garden. There is
no use trying to corral or imprison tiie
smell; a musket ball would fall seneless if
it ran against it. The root of the evil
must be extirpated, and nothing but tire
orcholera fumigation will perform the op
eration. Fire did it not long ago, at the
corner of Second street and Broadway, but
it was the intention of fate through the
medium of a refractory gasoline stove —
not human purpose. But, sad to relate,
while the diminutive burlesque on Cologne
was being consumed, plans for a worthy
successor were evolving in the fertile brain
of the grieving proprietor, and the awful,
diabolical smell which silences the voice of
the tan-yard, stands as a monument to the
burnt tamale wagon.
The bicycle fraternity is strong and on
the swell tide here In Los Angeles. We do
not believe there is a city In the country.
excepting possibly Denver, which contains
so many "knights of the road" (on wheels)
as Los Angeles. In several cases, we have
ascertained that this property in the wheel
market, however, is not conlined entirely
to bicycles. We are exceedingly tond of
the "bike" and though we occasionally
change places with tbe thing, moat gener
ally at the hottoma of steep hills, we alill
lean towards It. But when they come
stealing like a Shakesperian ghost past the
coat-tails some houra past midnight, on a
poorly lighted roadway, and the navigator
sits staring straight ahead like a Sphinx
with spinal curvature, the souls of men
are tired, and it often happens that the
emotions will rise to the tipper strata of
the mental constitution, and a wild desire
to tangle up that out -of-plumb neck with
the crook in a walking stick, consumes us
for the time.
Wo ran against a ease in point the other
night—or morning, if we remember our
bearings with sufficient clearness—which
served to illustrate this important excep
tion. We were plowing through the dark
ness, some dust and a few castor oil
plants, and jußt crossing the road ahead
was a man of plethoric physical develop
ment uud abounding in the lines which
gave nature a reputation and indicated in
this instance a large accumulation of
adipose tissue. This pilgrim was attend
ing Btrietly to his own affairs, and was us
ing his legs with all the diligence be pos
sessed to shorten the distance between
himself and his couch. There was no ul
terior object in that gait--ao such popular
conceit as a health stroll, no constitu
tional diversion, no fresh air exercise as
sociated with that toilsome progress
through his "slough of despond." Hs was
just tired, and was communing with him
self with much earnestness, and the es
sence of his dialogue pearcd to be an
entanglement with the suoject of who paid
for the last installment of liquid refresh
ments, und the sorrow he experienced over
a mistake in swallowing a few carpet tacks
in place of cloves. His breath was per
ceptible—to the car, 1 mean, and altogether
it was hard work, and cur sympathies
were enlisted from the start.
Just then, down the hill came flying
along one of those humped-hacked spec
ters, pointed straight for the lonely pedes
trian. It stopped our breath and our heart
beating as we saw the coining catastrophe,
for we knew no power on earth could avert
a collision. We were not mistaken. The
fiend on wheels failed to miss the traveler
by only a few inches we should judge, but
it was enougti. The result was that they
scraped up acquaintance on the principle
of the sentiments which surround the rear
apartments of a mule, and then separate 1
before they had time to cement it all with
the hand-shaking formula. The hand
shaking took place when the demoralized
man who loeomoted with the feet of him,
finally decided to give up his astronomical
investigations and get up; but his hands
wore closed up, and the sbakl >g was on
the principle of the Marquis of Queensbury
code. By the time be hud gotten his feet
under the portions of his body which al
lowed the laws of gravitation to operate
properly, the wheelman had disappeared
in the gloom of night, without any further
manifestation of friendship. The lonoly
man—did he swear, you ask US? Ho did.
The tilings lie said involved the reputation
of the rider's ancestry mainly, though
some allusion was made to the
moral status of the wheelman, his
integrity and station in life, his personal 1
traits, such as the question of cleanliness, 1
etc., and with much emphasis, his inability
to return and repeat the rather dramatic
ceremony of introduction, or submit to an
interview on how he did it. It lasted some
time, when he finally saw us, and bo im
mediately began to convert us with the ■
justice of his claims and the force of his
oratory. We fell In quickly with his views |
and assured him of our undying and per
petual sympathy, and our belief that bis
accusations should stand until better proof
in rebuttal were produced than the tragedy
so far had afforded; and with many assur
ances of his appreciation and the surfoit
o' friendship he had so soon contracted
for us in the hour of his tribulation, he am
bled off oncß more.
Once in a while the people of Los An
geles g-.-t a good tiling ia the musical or
artistic or theatrical line. But as n gen
eral rule the west, the far wast, is slighted,
for various reasons, on this score. There
are no peop'e on this earth in whom ad
miration for talent and artistic genius is
engrafted deeper than in the breasts
of Americans. Whether this rare gift is
exhibited in the form of a long-haired
virtuoso or maestro who can successfully
navigate the dangerous depths of a Bee
thoven sonate, a Bsch fugue, the technical
pyrotechnics of a production of Paganini
or interpret Tartlni's nightmare related in
the Devil's Sonate; the Thespian who can
passably illustrate Shakespeare's meaning
in his Gloucester, Henry or Hamlet; or the
vocal demigod who can place them on
terms of acquaintanceebip with Wagner,
Kosslni, Verdi, Gounod, Bellini, etc., or
throw the light of understanding upon the
tuneful setting of Goethe's great concep
tions, it is all the same; there is no place
in existence where the genius can reap the
dollar harvest as here in America.
But in accordance with this rule, the
class which finds Europe ond the far east
of this country not sutHciently app ecia
tive of their sterling qualities to risk idle
cash in an investigation, find their way to
the west, and especially cities hovering
about the 100,000 population mark. Of
course, there are exceptions to this: the
two greatest living artists of their kind,
Vsaye and Paderewski, were with us not
long ago; but nevertheless the rule gener
ally is as stated.
One thing in certain, however. While
the troupes which do come here foi our de
lectation (and money) generally mean to
give something in return for our patronage,
in other words, to make us laugh, cry, or
else keep us from indulging In these lux
uries—the proprietors or managers of the
houses evidently have not considered that
a financial remuneration for thsso kindly
oltic.es is quite sufficient, and that a sort of
counter-irritant in the shape of novelty
should !)e thrown in.on the heels and horns
plan. The man with the note hook feels
with the intuition of past experience that
it must make the knees of an operatic as
pirant quake when he walks into our the
aters, and is confronted with a
curtain having the appearance of a
patch-work or crazy quilt, or the seat
of a nether garment of a white-wash artist,
and jammed full of gratituous advice
on what to wear when you go to a funeral or
other cheerful oatertainment and where to
get it for an insignificant consideration, or
DOW to cure an attack of measles or tooth
ache with malarial lassitude thrown in.and
where you can buy a second-hand stove or
pawn your overcoat with an avuncular rel
ative next door to where the greatest sac
rifice sale of artilicial hair in the history
of our glorious nation is going on. ft is n
lucky circumstance, to my idea, that there
is not another counterpart of these mons
trosities on the ceiling where tno stage
favorites can see them, else, who knows,
when in tiie midst of such a blood-curd
ling scene as wtiere the heavy villain, with
uplifted knife says "will you be mine,
Pauline" the heroine might absent-mind
edly murmur "bet yer life if you'll buy me
a Slani-bang bicycle. - '
In one of tiie theaters, a wild attempt
at internal mural decoration has been
made. We all have been struck with the
perplexities involved ill the problem
whether the golden haired (or some other
shaded) muse up over the stage is walk
ing forward or is on the retrograde. Her
fuce presents to the audience a smile of
greeting, and she apppesrs to be ad
vancing, but as the eye drops a little to
the means of locimotion, doubt takes a
hand in the game, and there is an uneasy
feeling that she is deceiving us, and
while her fane says one thing, her pedal
extremities say another, and we are re
minded of Captain Marryatt's encomium
on womankind in his Pacha of Many
Tales. Then there is another daub
which the audience havo been pleased to
designate Trilby, I presume on account
of the dimensions of those useful mem
bers which have lately acquired that dis
tinctive name. Those feet, were evidently
built by the artist before the rest of the
body was applied, and ho found that if
he kept his proportions, there would prob
ably ba room enough if the ceiling was
raised about two more stories. Then this
ombryo Murillo evidently forgot to curtail
I the pedal expanse and proceeded to
