GONE ON TRIP
TO DELANO CITY
IN ORANGE BELT
LOS ANGELES VISITORS GUEST
OF MORSE COMPANY
ROSY VIEW OF SAN JOAQUIN VAL
LEY BRUSH LANDS
Delano to Have Modern Club.
Preserves Arranged by Standard
Oil Magnate and Associates.
$10,000 for Sport
i
A LARGE party of Los Angeles peo
ple left last night for an over-
Sunday visit at Delano, In the San
Joaquin valley.
Among the number were some six or
eight orange men, -who are visiting
that section to inspect the recently
opened orange lands in the Thermal
belt.
Late reports on the recent cold wave
which caused much concern among or
chardists everywhere confirm the valley
claims for immunity from blighting
cold. This Thermal bolt, or, according
to San Joaquin parlance, "the bench
lands," is peculiarly situated, and em
braces that high lying district famous I
for the early maturity of all sorts of
products.
As an indication of the growing im
portance of this San Joaquin orange
section it may be stated that a nursery
company has been organized and will
soon be located at Delano. It is the
purpose of this company to engage in
orange culture on a very broad scale.
An immediate investment of over $50,
--000 is reported.
Certainly no section of the state has
greater natural resources in soil, cli
mate and water advantages than San
Joaquin valley, and the recent opening
of Delano lands by the Morse company
should see an immediate colonization
movement equally as energetic as other
favored sections have enjoyed.
Sales by the Morse company are re
ported brisk, and fully 90 per cent of
the inquiry is request for information
on Delano for orange culture.
If the planting of orchards is an in
dex, Delano bench lands bid £<vir to
great prominence, for many tracts al
ready sold by this company have
been put to oranges.
Delano Is to Have a Gun Club
Lewis S. Thompson, Standard Oil
magnate and sportsman of internation
al reputation, with one or two associ
ates, including Harry Payne Whitney
of New York city, are considering build
ing a duck club a few miles west of
Delano.
Mr Thompson before returning to
New York city recently investigated a
tract of more than 1000 acres on which
it is proposed to sink artesian wells
and thus form lakes and marshes for
duck preserves. Mr. Thompson Intends
to have his architect make plans for a
$10 000 club house while he i 3 east, and
on his return this project will un
doubtedly be pushed to completion.

WHAT A LOCAL FIRM ACHIEVED
IN ONE YEAR
Inglewood Rancho Land Dotted by
200 New Dwellings—Fertile Soil
and Great Abundance
of Water
The. natural attractions of the snuth-
I western part of Los Angeles, combined
with excellent soil, abundance of wa
ter, splendid ear service, good schools
and ready market for oil crops, are
taking people to Inglewood rancho.
Quite a portion of this property is al
ready planted to alfalfa, and v.'lth six
!or seven cuttings a year, which this
soil yields, alfalfa nets 7 to 9 per cent
yearly on the investment.
Since the property has been placed
on the market about a year ago 200
houses have been built, ranging in price
from $500 to $1500 each, and are now
occupied by an excellent class of pen
pie, who purchased for homes. These
people are well satisfied and express a
desire to add adjoining acres to their
present holdings.
An advantage of the property which
has not been before emphasized is the
beauty of the car ride to the rancho,
for the car line runs through one of the
best residence districts, and also
through one of the prettiest suburbs
between Los Angeles and the beach.
Sales Total $350,000
Patton & Longley, who placed Ingle
wood rancho on the market about a
year ago, report that they have sold
$350,000 worth of property, which means
that they have averaged over $1100 a
day.
Everyone who is interested in the
growth of Los Angeles realizes the op
! portutlity of the southwestern section,
and upon visiting Inglewood rancho
agrees that the soil will raise anything
grown in this climate and that the ad
! vance in value is inevitable, located as

POLITICS BREWING
IN SOUTH AFRICA
FEDERATION TO COME INTO
BEING NEXT YEAR
Host of Men Produced Who Are Con.
vincsd They Are Intended
for Members of Par.
liament
JOHANNESBURG, Jan. 15.—South
Africa has more politicians to tho
square mile than any other part of
the British empire. If it does not
breed many statesmen, it at least pro
duces a host of men who are con
vinced that a far-seeing Providence
intended them to be members of Par
liament. It grows politicians as easily
as mealies. The stranger traveling (ar
from Capetown to the Victoria Falls
finds himself involved In a political
argument .1300 miles inns. Every
body has views. Nobody has views
which quite coincide with anybody's
else's. And everybody is inspired by
a deep desire to convince some harm
less stranger that he alone is right
and several thousand other politicians
are hopelessly wrong.
The farmer sitting on his stoop, the
mining magnate in his office, the clerk
drinking; his 11 o'clock cup of tea, the
trader lounging In the back-veldt Kaf
fir store —one and all are willing to
lny down their several tasks at a mo
ment's notice and indulge in the lux
ury of an endless political debate. But
tho whole tribe of politicians is sorely
troubled. None, can tell what the
divisions will be at the first general
election for the Union parliament next
year.
First General Election
The position is this. A federated
South Africa comes into being on Jun?
1, 1910. On that date a Union cabinet
will be ready. As soon after that date
as the constituencies can get them
selves delimited there will be the first
general election. Obviously political
parties must be formed. But what
will the parties be? This Is the point
at which politicians stick. Programs
do not matter much because all the
programs of all the parties contain
the same platitudes. Personalities ara
more important because many people
prefer a leader to a principle, .Most
Important of all Is it to know what
the parties are likely to bo. And up
on this matter all South Africa waits
anxiously for a lead.
Is the country to have the old par
ties, which, under a thin disguise and
despite a few exceptions, really mean
British versus Dutch? Or will there
be a young South African party formed
of the progressive leaders of both
raoeSi prepared to do battle with do
nothingism of the Hofmeyrs and Hert
sogs of the. four colonies? Shrill the
division ultimately be between coast
and inland, or that high protection will
be ranged against Vow protection, or
agriculture enter the lists against
milling, or a white labor party vig
orously oppose those who believe that
the provision of an amply supply of
colored labor ought to bo the he
ginning and the end of South African
administration?
Doubt Prevails
At ttie moment none can say. it is
difficult enough to suggest what will
happen. South African politics is ho
purely South African. Politics is com
plicated by conditions which oxisl her
alone. It is impossible to say that
because Maedonald and Brown did
such and such a thing in Canada, and
Barton anil Deakin adopted such and
such a course in Australia, therefore
South Africa is likely to do so and bo.
For assuredly South Africa would do
nothing of the kind.
Theoretically the most obvious course
la to have a coalition ministry repre
senting both white races and all four
colonies. Union provides South Africa
with a clean slate—heaven knows she
has needed It badly enough. Arc they
going at once to write upon it all the
old battle cries? The essential thins in
South Africa today la to place the new
machinery of government on a firm
foundation and get it into working
order. The four sets of old machinery
in the four colonies forming the union
have to be gradually displaced.
Plainly this will be a long business,
and at the same time a business apart
from party warfare. It is a work
which should bo done by the co-opera
tion of the most experienced men in
all parties. It does not call for the arts
of the electioneering orator. Coalition,
as its advocates freely admit, could not
last forever. But during this pre
liminary work of firmly establishing
the union there is no cause for war.
The founding of a proper union civil
service, tho centralization of the prison
system, tho arranging for police and
defense and railway management, eto.,
are not subjects which need necessarily
provoke fierce party battles.
The ideal coalition ministry would In
clude General Botha and Dr. Jameson,
Mr. Morriman and Sir John Fraser, ex-
I'resident Steyn and Mr. Moor. It
would represent all South Africa, and
its work would be to establish a
United South Africa on the firmest pos-

sihle basis. But, unhappily, the coali
tion idea has been received with much
opposition. Negotiations are still going;
on and may go on for months. In any
case the premiership will cause trouble,
for though according to constitutional
precedents Mr. Merrlman has first
claim to tin' honor, the Capo premier
is not popular in tho Transvaal. Inj
the end Mr. Merrlman may, like Sir
William l.yne in Australia, have to be
content with a seat in a cabinet formed
by another statesman.
Old Racial Lines
But it looks very much as though the
first general election in South Africa
will he fought nut updn the old racial
lines. The parties may be labeled any
way at all, but in reality they will be
British versus Dutch. And the unfor
tunate part of this will be that General
Botha, who is really a man of progres
sive ideas, will be forced back upon
the more conservative and racial Dutch
organizations.
And if tho struggle is upon those
lines, then the liners will win. Re
distribution will assist the towns.
Which moans the British, In a straight
fight between British and Dutch, the
British would win. But, as usual, the
British will split. One section, an
swering to the Transvaal Nationalists
of today, will co-operate with the
Dutch. Another section will allow a
theoretical hatred of capitalists to
force them Into the ranks of a labor
party. And already we hear of a Cen
tral party, and various independents,
and several secessions from the Pro
gressive side; and all these movements
will divide tho British vote. Kven
Natal. which in tin' calculations of i
few months ago was always balanced
against the Orange River Colony, is un
certain. General Botha, cleverest of
political tacticians, appears to have
alf aily gained tho sympathies of Mr.
Moor, the Natal premier, and though
Durban may stand firm the rural dis
tricts may throw in their lot with the
land-owning Dutch party. South Afri
can politics at the moment certainly
presents a puzzle.
Candidates Numerous
So many candidates have been
mentioned for the post of first gover-
nor-general that every fresh name is |
received with a certain amount of I
caution, [ndeedi the Impression has
been reviving lately that Lord Scl
borne would, afterall, be allowed to
Inaugurate the union which has been
created during his term of office. But
during the last few weeks the discus
sion in th,' English press of the claims
of .Mr. Herbert Gladstone has arrested
attention. It is felt that this rumor
has more substance behind it than the
others, and several newspapers in this
country are already discussing the ap
pointment almost as if it were an ac
complished fact. With the exception of
a rather violent outburst by the
Natal .Mercury, which '"of all pos
sible selections cannot conceive a
worse," and which says that the post
demands "the nerve and diplomatic
genius of the best man the imperial
government can engage," comment is
guarded and not unfavorable. The
Transvaal Leader suggests that .Mr.
Gladstone's experience of the "suf
fragettes" should qualify him to
handle the Asiatic passive resisters,
and believes that he would ravor a
cautious individualism in economic
policy and would not be guilty of
social ostentation. The Star says
that if the choice is to he limited to
the present cabinet South Africa might
go further and fare worse. It seems.
to be agreed that the most unfor
tunate feature of Mr. Gladstone's ap
pointment would not be connected with
his own personality but would lie in
his name, which, however, distin
guished, is associated with the bitterest
controversy in South African history.
An important and successful experi
ment in proportional representation
has just been COnoluded in the annual
town council elections at Johannes
burg and Pretoria. In Pretoria the
votes which numbered under 3000,
were counted the same evening and re
vealed a relatively heavy poll and a
general understanding of the business
.ii > otins. In Johannesburg, where up
ward of 12,000 votes wer.' cast, the
counting was a long affair. The per
centage of spoilt votes was heavier
than in Pretoria, but the bulk of
these were not attributable to the
mysteries of the new system. There
was no hitch whatever in either
place In the business of counting and
distributing the votes. It is signifi
