B. WOOD & SON,  . " • Wholesale «nd Retail Dealers in ;  Stoves, Hardware and Tinware,  Crockery, Glasswarep^^gate^iron ware, Pumps, Qas-pip^Water-pip^, Wagons and  Burnì Californian.]  Some Aveeks ago the editor of the-Downey Review intimated in an editorial article that some people are asking too rriuch fortheir lands, thus keeping actual settlers: away from Southern California who would be valuable people to have here. He said this class .of people would not'pay a higher price than the\actual products of the land, would páy^ a fair interest upòn, and in tiiis he wa,8, in the main, correct. But there is another side to this question, and it is ably presented by á correspondent of the Review in the-following language :  'In attemptirig to answer your article, "Be Moderate,P I know the odds are decidedly against me, I fully appreciate the difficulty of combatting a:n editor through his own coluipns. I do think your article misleading and liable to create à wrong i mpression upon the pubJic^iOt^dpiiS ^^ tend to depreciate the value of our lands. You hold that pur lands are not worth the prices asked because they will hot pay interest on those prices and the land cannot be farmed successfully when «neh prices have to be ■ paW- I would like to call ypuF attention to' the land of Frank Van Fleet--without a tree or vine—from fourteen acres pf alfalfa he had sold $464 in hay from two cuttings up to May 1st, an aVOTage of $16 per acre for each crop. He lias engaged his h ay for the year dt the same figure. Now give }iim a low estimate—say geven crops for the year and, we have $115 per acre per annum—a nice interest on $1,150 per acre for land. I graiit that this is an exceptional case in this for that the owner of this land is a thorough manager, a goc^ farmer jind a hard,worker; I only expect the average farmer to; do half so well and yet I can show an interest on over $500 per acre. You havecnly to look'over your neighbors to sé'e that farming pays. Not one man in ten in the valley paid over one-fourth down when he bought his land. Ten years ago; there was hardly a réspéctóble; building ^In the township. To-dáy the land is paid for, fenced and many have fine residences : and Outbuildings; This was accomplished: at the plow handles. It' is only within the last five years tl^at tree, and vine planting to any notable degree was commenced. The planting of orchards and vinèyàrds not only enhanced the value of the land on which planted j but all the adjacent lands by demonstrating the adaptability of our soil to fruits and that fruits were the best paying crops, and hence our valley is held for fruit land'and no longer for corn and pumpkins. Your argument that.land is worth just what it will pay interest on is correct, ^ly in one sense, that is when forcedÎîpon the market. A man will buy land that pays .interest like ho would lend money for interest while another will buy, trusting , to the future for returns, basing his hopes -upon the probabilities and, possibilities of the land'when improved. The foroaer ^ys for immediate sifnall profits, the latter for large profit by developing it.  You have a colt that will not pay one cent of interest for three years hence, and is an actual expense and yet you value the colt at $100, on your judgment that it will be worth it at that time. A matf'pays $100 for a thoroughbred cow, knowing that she will hot pay interest at once, upon the investment, but relying upon the improvement of the stock and the increase for his profit. You invest in a newspàper outfit when you know th^t-tho plant will not pay interest'at once, but rely upon your'judgment that ii will in tho ïuturo. The'ahrewd-èst financiers of the age are. daily in^vesting millionè in schemes that do not pay at oncl^i'but which they beliovo ulCimatoly; will pay diyi^ dends. -We do not hold our land for what it is now^ paying interest oh, .but for, what our júdgm^ñ^téllB us, will l)e ita valuó in thé ■ pear future, 'libero are orchard^y,itnd  You know where they are; Vineyards at five years old pi^duce^ve tons per acre and > will." j^ield $65 per acre if the granges sold in market, and $90 per acrp if madfe into wine. If you had a four-year old vineyard that, would be in beat'? ing ih/ another year, ^buld you give it away because it does not pay'^terest on one dollar per acre or would you hold it for its real worth $«00 or $700 per acre? All know tliat in planting ; orchards and vineyards . wo must wait several yearsMbr piofit, and yet the fact that durihg these intervening [years the land does not pay in-tercist on any sum, but on the Contrary is a heavy expense to the owner does not indicate that it has no value. There is no acre of land in Los Nietos valley that is not worth intrinsically as much as any land in Los Angeles county outside the towns and cities. There , are very few, acre here that are not worth from $500 to $1^000 when in -fruit vinea or. alfalfa, This. _valley is no longer thought of as a grain country. It is Ofiered as orchard and alfalfa land, and as such it is too valuable for grain raising. It does pay as fruit and alfalfa land. Land is not Valued by what banks will lend on it or what an assessor should place on it, for in either case itiigi liable to be forced j on an  ■ V- - ■ ■ ■ ■  unfavorable market under unfavorable circumstances.  Our orchards, vineyards, and al-ialfa in fine bearing you will admit dp pay interest on large amounts, and arguing from this standpoint that others will pay at the same rate when they reach the same age, it is an easy calculation to figure what a young vineyard or orchard will be worth or pay interest «n at a given time and when bare land will reasonablyjbe worth at a fixed date in the future if improved, and what the improvements will cost. Hence we are liable to figure- with reasonable certainty the present and the prospective value of the property. The man who ^ soils his land to-day for $200 or $300 per acre will see his more forcsighted purchaser realize two hundred per cent. On the investment before he can comfortably locate in a ngw home. We all buy lois in, Downey not because they payL interest, but because we have, an abiding faith in their future. You pay at the rate of $800 to $1,000 per acre for lota that produce ho incVcase at present and get your;money through inlproving. I pi^y $200 per aerò for bar© land and spend $100 per aero in bringing-la vineyard to ; tjearing, and , my land is then worth $500 per acre or over twelvo per cent, per annum for the five years and larger pvofite hr the future. The high prices : asked for our lands are what they are worth and we don't want to see the "bargains" like a jug handle.  • ' 'NIKTO.  Good aud SoUd Progress.  Notwithstanding the oxcitemcnt about other portions of Southern California, South Riverside still continues its even jprogress, and is not working on a boom-^^a speculation, but on tangible facts that speak for themselves. Its wonderful growth when placed upon the market was the result of bringing to the notice of the world the great advantages that were ofiered in soil, water, location, ete.j and showing up the future'possibilities of tho beautifi.il slope of land that human skill and energy we're to bring frbrii its natural state tp 'one of civilization and improvenient. That has passed and the result as far as gone has exceeded the most sanguine expectations. It is not a mere tract of land held by specula-tbrCwaiting for some one to venture and improvCj but a i lively» .thriving town, with, the bustle and energy of a progressivevfiettlement displayed on, every hand^ - ^  The sale of landj wWle a'quantity had been: purchased by:;^peculatorff, been to bona fide settlers, to a great extent,- and ethers are bwing )ip froipi' thfr former class a^^ii^ yanced prices^ and. going to; wor^ to make a^hcmier and start a Vusi*  prices naturally advanced, not only by the éxciteráeút of a boom and under the glowing words of the auctioneer, but in a calm, steady way, dependent upon the Jaw Of .supply and demand, Tho first purchasers took the risk, if there was any, as mnny thought, and bought at bottom prices and arc reaping the fruits of their sagacity. Others, unwilling to take the first risk, came ih latéi". at the increased prices and are making money and homes for themselves, and still the tide, increasing in volunie, is setting to the new town.  To-day marks an^jiJ)cr advance in the price of property of $30 on each town lot, and on the first .©f next month, should any rcanaii« uj^i-fiold, ivnother advance of $3()'^Aviil be made. _ Choice lots in second hands arc held at good figures .and bargains are picked up at lonce. C. W. Sylwster ofiered two business lots for $1,000 and they were sold three times by as many different parties in a.^fe days. MlVPy that have had lotSr for sale have Avithdrawn them from the market, kf)owing them to be good property to hold for the future.  The interest is not all centered in the town lots, for the average property have been equally in^s good demand. Four kundredj^cres weife sold last week ,to one |iyndi-cate., Thkifi a good showing, for on this acerage property depends the solidity of the new town—it is the backing that is to keep the town alive and give it, growth and vigor. Hero the acerage lots have not only had a sale commensurate with tlje town lots, but the owner of a largo jportion are only AÍwting the advent of the water to ,se^^)ut trees aud improve their iracas.  Lands above the pipe line are ^not on the market, and tlwse below will soon be withdrawn. The reasons for this are'as follows :  Ist—The Pomona and Elsinore railroad i^l positively be built.  2nd—The iiavci®ido, Santa Ana and Los Angeles railroad will soon have cars running to Sóulíi Riverside.  3rd—A company is now being organized to build an electric railway 10 miles long, from the depot to the summit isf 43ie meuuitains, where a large and magnificent hotel will be erccted.  These enterprises will greatly'enhance the value of all South Riverside property, and acerage tracts wiU be in great demand and command a-higli figure.  Work on the new bank building has beén commenced. "When completed it wiU be one .of the finest buildir^s in the.county. The new hotel is nearly completed. The work of laying out, the hotel grounds eommenced a few days ago and in a short tinie will be very attractive., Mr. R. B. T-aylor, superintendent has  sold his place at Anaheim and moved to South Riverside with his family. He is erecting a home in the town site for present occupancy, but will soon put up a magnificent residence oh a ten acre lot on the Boulevard,  Other finó howscs are being built and grounds laid out Svith shrubbery, flowers, etc., and by neit fall the to|^ of a year's growth will bo an amactivo and thriving place.-^ Press.  where upon the ground within hundred feet of a well, they are quite sure, sooner or later, to find their way into the well^vater, Iwrne thither by the rain-water, as it percolates down through the soil. To the eye and the taste the water, though heavily charged with,them, may seem perfectly pure.  As these organisms may. thrive and-multiply out of the body, they may have entered the well «everxil years before, or may have long existed in the soil to be borne at any time into the well.  Now it is unfortunately true that country people arc specially negligent in the matter' of drainage. Little is done to gua?d the purity !of the drinking wjiter—to apply on the premises the sanitary pi'iriciples which have been established during tho last twenty-five years, and which are so,generally acted ;0a in our cities, making even the miglaiy London a healthier place to live in than many of our rural districts. In multidudcs of cases the purity of the country air is more tHahi counterbalanced by the impurity of the water. .  The condition of many of our famous seaside resorts is still worSe tli'an thai of the country, the drainage being radically- defective, and Avholly unequal to tho needs of a Jarge temporary"population. ^In,^our religious camp-grounds also, tö'which increasing numbers of persons yearly resort for the entire season, adequate drainage is tho exception rather than the rule. Hence wo say to every one, make sure beforehand that the cottiage or hotel or farmhouse you propose going to, makes the fullest provision for pure water.—^Youth's Companion.  The Next Congress.  Smiuuer Besorts—A Caution.  Not a few persons, every summer, go from the city to the country or the scííiide in quest of healtli only to bring back disease, or jpoa-sibly, death. The disease to which they are specially exposed is ^ typhoid fever. ^ It may be well to re-state some of the leading facts relating to this disease. Its seat is «in ihe lower part of the small intestine—tho ileum.  It is caused as the highost au thoritie^now admit, by miczosoopio vegetations—bacilli—^that enter the system tbrougli tho mouth and stomach, anH find their uaost favorable soil in certain of the intostinal glands, wWcb "they inflame.

The membership of the Senate was completed on tlie 14th of June, when the New Hampshire Legidlar ture elected Mr. William E. Chandler, who was Secretary of the Navy in President Arthur's Cabinet, to succeed the late Senator Pike, whose place had been temporarily filled by Mr. Cheeny, ap^ pointed by the Govenor.  In tho Senate, as it was constituted when the forty-ninth Congress ended last March, there were forty-two Republicans and thirty-four Democrats, counting the two Vir-, ginia Senators as Republicans. Twenty-six Senators' have been elected, including the vacancy election in New Hampshire. In twen-ty-bne states the retiring Senator is sueceeded by one of the same party, and in nine of these cas^^^^ Senator was re-elected.  The Republicans gained a Senator in Nevada; the Democra^ gained one in each of the stjitos'of New-Jer^y, Virgmia, Indiana, and Gal-' ifornia; but it is expected tì»at there will be a contest ^oyer the ne'^ Senator from Indiana, and his admission is somewhat in doubt.  When the Senate "meets, then, the Republicans will have tliirty-eight members, without counting Mr. Riddieberger, of Virginia, who is rather erratic in politics; and the Democrats will have Ihirty^mx. or thirty-scven,;|if ,thoy càlTVseat their new member from Indiana. :  The division of the Senate polit^ ically, on» geographical lines, is more nmfked today than it ever was before. Sixteen Souttern States are represented, by two Democrats each. Eighteen Northern' Stated have each two RopuMiean SenatorsV Indiana alóne of. the Northern Strips has two Democratic Senators. Tho 'doubtful Mr, Riddieberger, of Vir^nia, is' tKe only Republican Senator from any State of the South, T^ho Ncepreaen-^^ tation of. th'refr Statissi,^ Ohio, ond California, is di^d. Thus, while there is but one fó^l^ lican Senator from the are but four Democratie from the Nor&.  the hew of-J  tives will^ccr^""^"' " '  one ¡be estimated, of one - hundred' and r si xty-eighl Iteuiociatit, one hundred and fifty-three. RCpuMicansy ami " four members of the Labov and CJ reenback parties. The Democrats will therefore be in full control of j" ; the body, and, as in the last Coh-^; gross, the two branches will be out . of sympathy with each other politi-i^ i^^ cally.  A very large mimbeT, anuriusuat number, of the members appe.ir in Congress for the first iimo. Of the three hundred and twenty five ^ mcnibors, only one hundred and nmty-cight sat in tho last Congress, SCTenteen others return to- the House of Representatives .after .»•«. absence, and one ötäier 'has .«erved in the Senate but not in the House of Representatives. Tlierc are, con sequcntly, one hundred and nine, almost exactly'one third, who will be wholly inexperiencodin^Congrcs-sional drttîos.  The most important questions to come before the new Congres^, as it now scorns, are those of finance.. Indeed, it is for the considération of these matters that the extra ses-r sion will be called, if called it is.  In the first place' there is the ever-recurring eubjcct of taxation. All parties and nearly all persons " in the country agree in thinking;  that tho Government raises /too  - ■ „0  much revenue. They difier so much as to which of the sources of revenuo shall be cut off", that nothing could be done by the last Congress ; and. the prospect of an agreement now is not very bright.  But in any event, it is necessary to do something in reference to the debt. No part of the public «debt that is left,. except tftie igreenback notes, can now be ¡paid at par. In order to,. xoSuce ¡the debt which beasfi iiiteuest, the Treasury must ISO int®. tiie «laiiket and buy the bonds at a high premium.  .Moreover, the reduction of the gtcenback debt is prohibited by law ; and if the bonds be not . purchased, money will accumulate in. ; the Treaeuryv greatly Uà the injui^ of businesH.' On this matter, there« fore, something must be dmë; The'debates upon finance cannot fail to be liigiily iiitorcsting and in-«touctive.—^Yioutà'a Gpijipanion.  In Oeaieral. ^ ..
