Orange county also lay* claim to the
highest box-price paid for Valencia
ln?t w«son. In that of C. O. Chapman of
Fullerton, which sold In New lork for
|9 Tne b °h^avy prollts made in late. Va
loncias hero came as a surprise to
many orange growers In what '^c con
sidered more favorable districts. There
are numerous instances of growers re
ceiving $3.50 net for Valenclas on the
trees, but tho highest price reported
here for fruit sold thus in tho orchard
whs of C. F. Matthews, who received
$4 10 net. Mr. Matthews' orchard com
prises about live acres and is situated
over near Tustln. This fruit was
bought and marketed by lv. I*. \mi
son, an Independent shipper of Orange,
September 25.
Bring Fancy Prices
A little later the same shipper pur
chased the Valenclas of A. E. Bennet.
D. F. Campbell, ('. K. Torrey, J. C.
Ourry and Samuel Tustin, paying them
$3.50 net, in the orchard. The fruit was
sold In the auction market at New
York city in seven consecutive car
loads. Tho first car was sold Septem
ber 4 for $1,610.95. tho lowest price of
all. The live others soon followed,
bringing returns ranging from $5.48 to
$G.S3 per box for extra choice. The last
car brought the highest price of the lot,
$2,375.15, or $7.16 per box for extra
choice. This salo was made October 17.
The fruit packed In these cars was all
from small orchards of about two
acres each, and averaged the growers
$1000 per acre net.
The Santiago Orange Growers asso
ciation reports late sales of fancy Va
lenclas which brought from $3.23 to
$3.62 per LjX for the best grades.
A profit of $12,000 is reported from the
ten acres of Valencias owned by Dr.
Wall of Tustin. D. F. Campbell of Or
ange received net returns of $3000 for
about 1300 packed boxes of Valenclas

orchard comprises about 2SO bearing
trees, occupying less than three acres,

Cuts Back Navel Trees
The large orchards belonging to
David Hughes, 3 miles east of Orange,
returned him $14,000 for his Valencias
nlone, last season. Mr. Hughes also
owns 200 acres of lemons from which 64
carloads were shipped last season, and
the coining crop is estimated to be
equally as large. The fruit of the
Hughes orchards Is packed and ship
ped direct from the ranch. At Santa
Ana, on "Trolley day" this ranch was
represented by a lloat appropriately
decorated with farm productions; It
was one of the handsomest in the
"parade of products."
During the season just passed 749
cars of oranges and lemons were ship
ped from Orange .bringing returns of
nearly $300,000 to the growers. The pre
vious year 655 carloads were shipped,
nnd in 1902-03 the number aggregated
779 cars, which is the greatest number
ever sent from Oranse.
Notwithstanding the unfavorable
weather conditions which prevailed
during the early summer months, while
the fruit was setting, many of the or
chardists report satisfactory pros
The coming crop is expected to be
somewhat less than that of last season,
but the fruit promises to he excellent.
Ho great has been the profit In Valen
cia? that many navel orchards have
been cut back and budded to the late
variety. This will materially lessen the
output for many seasons.

That the nctlon of the mayor in re
fusing to consider the names suggested
by the three large civic bodies of this
city for the new board of public works,
still rankles in the bosoms of these
bodies has been shown by their refusal
to suggest a list of names of expert
engineers from which three were to
be selected as a committee to examine
the outfall sewer.
At a recent meeting of the council
the mayor sent a communication to that
body suggesting that the Municipal
league, chamber of commerce and
Merchants and Manufacturers' asso
ciation name the engineers to inspect
the big sewer, in order that the tax
payers of the city might feel assured
that everything was all right.
The chamber of commerce and the
Municipal league have each sent polite
notes to the mayor refusing to suggest
the names and members of the Mef-;

have stated that it will take the same
action. .:^8!Mj?« MTp4

Big Tract Opened Up at the Corner of
Main Street and Slauson Avenue.
Cars From Many Branches May Be
Operated Over New Road
The announcement is made by F. D.
Parker, an attorney with offices in th«
Orpheum Theater building, that ar
rangements have been concluded with
the Huntington railway interests for
the immediate extension of the Moneta
avenue car line south on Moneta avenue
from Fifty-third street to Sixty-first
street, and thence east on Sixty-first
street in a direct line to South Park
avenue, to a point directly opposite
the entrance to Ascot park.
The Los Angeles Railway company
already has a franchise on Moneta ave
nue as far south as Slauson avenue,
which Is the city limits, and for the
balance of the way a private right of
way has been secured through private
property. This was necessary because
Mr. Huntlngton will not construct or
operate any car line under a twenty
one-year franchise.
The line Is already partially con
structed as far south as Slauson ave
nue, and the work will bo pushed aB
rapidly as possible. In all probability
the new line will be completed and in
regular operation within the next three
weeks, and this will then be the most
direct car line to Ascot park and will
enable the railway company to run
any of the Main-street, Spring-street
or Broadway cars direct to the park.
Mr. Parker has had this plan under
way since the interruption of service
on the San Pedro line, but the nego
tiations were not concluded until yes
Announcement Is also made of tha
sale to a local syndicate through the
agency of Mr. Parker, of six pieces of
acreage, being a total of seventy acres,
nnd lying at the southeast corner of
Jialn street and Slauson avenue. This
property has a frontage of a half-mil^

passing through the center of it, and
will have a frontage of over 4000 feet
on' the "new Moneta-avenue car line."
which passes through the center of the
tract on. Sixty-first street. Fifteen
acres of this property, known as tho
Main ptreet and Hlauson avenue tract,
has already been improved with grad
ed and oiled streets, cement curbs,
livo-foot cement sidewalks, and orna
mental trees have been planted and
water piped to each of the eighty-eight
lots, which are 50x135 feet. The re
maining fifty-five acre tract is now
being subdivided Into three hundred
and twenty lots, averaging in size from
50x13.-, to 40x128 feet, to wide alleys,
mnkinpr a total of 408 lots, and the same
high-class improvements are being In
stalled. This property will be known
as Mettler's Alain street and South
park tract, and will bo placed upon
the market through the agency of F.
D. Parker and Chas. Mettler & Son.
The total cost of this property, includ
ing the street improvements, will be
about $150,000.
Although there has been no previous
announcement of tho opening up of
this large tract or of the building of
the new car line, the advance sales
have amounted to eighty-six lots, ag
gregating in value $69,677, which have
been sold at prices ranging from $500

Disaster Occurs 1100 Feet Under.
ground and 3000 Feet From Mouth
of Shaft— Most Victims
Are Englishmen
By Associated Press.
DIAMONDVILLK, \Vyo., Dec. 2.— 1
Eighteen miners lost their lives by an
explosion late last night in the Dia
mond Coal and Coke company* mine,
No. 1. It Is believed that all the men
who perished wore instantly killer!.
What cause 1 the disaster Ih not defi
nitely known, but the theory advanced
by the miners Ih that a "blow out"
shot ciiUHed the dust explosion which
wrecked the mine. The shock of the .
explosion wns felt all over the town,
rocking buildings so violently that
their occupants rnn out into the open.
The news that there had been another
disaster at tho Diamond mme — the
second In less than five years — quickly
Hpreiid through the village and prac
tically the whole population of Dla- I
mondvllle flocked to the mine shaft.
Wives and children of the entombed
miners were among thoso who rushed
to the shaft and the scenes were most
pathetic. Though men were ready to
enter the shaft it was Impossible to
do so, owing- to the after effects of
the explosion, and Superintendent
Thomas Snedden Insisted that all pre
cautions against fire should be taken.
It was late this forenoon before the
first rescue party entered the mine.
The explosion occurred 1100 feet un
der ground and at lenst 3000 feet from
the mouth of the shaft. The explosion
wrecked the brattices and blocked the
entrances to the lower levels of the
mine, necessitating the removal of
much debris before the miners could
be reached. "When the rescuers finally
went Into the mine none could remain
long. The crowds nround the portal
eagerly watched as car after car came
up from below, but they brought only
rescuers who had been overcome by
the afterdamp. It was nearly noon be
fore the first body was brought up.
The 800 coal diggers of the Dia
mond mines were assisted in the res
cue work by many miners who came
over from Kemmerer, a few miles dis
Every man in the min_e perished. The
night force is small, their work beintr
limited to knocking down coal to be
taken out by the day shift. Had the
explosion occurred In daytime the loss
of life would have been far greater.
While the workings are believed to
be not materially damaged, it probably
will be a week before the mine will be
shipping its usual output. The Dia
mond Coal and Coke company Is a
Salt Lake concern. The output of tho
mine Is largely shipped to Salt I^ake
nnd the smelter at Anaconda, Mont.
In the previous explosion, which oc
curred Feb. 20, 1901, thirty-two miners
Many Knglish miners, who came di
rect to the mines from England, are
employed at Dlamondvllle, and it is be
lieved that a majority of the dead
are Englishmen.
