JOHlii G. mTK, PÔMOÎfA, CALIF. ■ While some people affected to doubt at first that the Pomona, South Riverside & Elsinorc II. R. ! would ever inatorlialize, the reasons I ' i why it must be built are increasing 1 so fast that no one who is at all ac-(j[nainted with the situation can doubt for a moment that it is an assured fact. To begin with, as the Rkiî has before shown, the litie of road lies almost wholly througli the property of the stockholders, which to indfetminds would present a suf-fioently cogent reaf?on \vhy tliey should desire to build the road, but there "are other reasons not so apparent at first which nevertheless are imiwrtant, and recent developments have their share in making the road a ; ter necessity than before. As far as Elsinorc is concerned, they need the Toad badly. The town is off the line of the California Southern, and wants a road tha^t will tap the coal and mineral regions near the lake, enabling the products of the mine and prospective manufactories to be shipped to all parts of the state without costly transportation by team to a depot some miles distant. The advantages to be derived from increased j travel, competing lines for freighters and the opening up of new tributary country,apply equally to the principal cities on the line oi road and need not be mentioned again in this article.. The Temes-cal canyon with its thousands of acres of choice lands and attractions in the way of picturesque sceneiy among the wooded canyons, fine hunting and trout fishing, mineral springs which are fast .developing into fashionable health and pleasure resorts, offers in'its self a strong temptation for a railroad to traverse its longtli and profit by the traffic which there inust inevitably be created for it \ very soon, in tliis favored locality. The town of Fair Oaks has only just been platted by the Smith Riverside Land and Water Company on the new road, in an attractive iocality-ftjid lii'W-diBtance from town which will insure its rapid and substantial growth, and will make it the favored place of suburban residence on the new Jine.

Now let us see what will be the benefit to South Riverside. First, then, it will give us a cross road connecting ut, with the California iSouthern at Elsinoro, and the Southern PaeifiC- at ■ Pomona, the latter giving us a competing line with the great Atchison system which we already have. We shall he nt the junction of two roads; transportation facilities will bo trebled ; tourist travel will -cor-respondingly increase, and the importance of South Riverside as a pleasure resort, as a place of residence, and as a commercial centre will increase many fold. Since the discovery of a si.k foot vein of good bituminous coal just at the edge of town, another reason presents itself to the candid mind why, the road will be, not merely a convenience, but an actual necessity. There can be no doubt as to the existence of the coal, and if not the only coal in this part of the statc,it is at any rate of the best quality and exists in the greatest abundance. The demand for it will be great and tlie transportation of it to market will form a large share of the business of the new road. Add to this the prospective manufactories which are bound to be established as soon as capitalists hear of the existance of thé coal, and the shipment of their goods, beside the natural traffic of a town of the im^ portance of this Qne, and the business of the road is already provided for. An item which must not be forgotten is the great increase the values of the land which the road will run, which increase will go very far towards paying the actual- cost of the road, and the stockholders being also the land holders, this reason has its full weight with them. Following vip the line of the road, it leads us through the princely domain of the Ohino Ranch, whose proprietor, Richard . Cîird, is one of the chief movol*« in the "enterprise. The importance^of this road to Mr. Gird cannot be overestimated. It extends across his fertile fields for iniles traversing the | entire length of the new town of uhinp, which is destined tp make wonderfully rapid and substantial growth, and will, inside of two j'ea're, make heavy ehlpments of stock, grain, alfalfa and fruits, and wi!I receive goods «to supply: a rural population ' ôf several thousand families. Tlie intexçats ,Qf,.Ponoona will be subserved by increased rail facilities, by the opening of new back country and. by a •direct route to the mines and manufactbries nt this end 'of the road. It will open a new market for .hçr .products, incite increased activity in business and infuse with new life the boom which the sale of Chino has roused from its state of inoccuOus. desuetude, and will niako her in deecF" what her people propose making her in name,—n city. Thus it will be seen that the business for the new road will bo provided for from the start. It will not have to build through unoccupied country but has a territory already well developed with limitless possibilities yet to bring out and the three principle points on the line are well established and prosperous. The roa,d would pay expenses from the start and pay interest on the bonde, which being reasonably certain, no difficulty need bo apprehended about building tho road. Work has not stopped but is going actively ahead and by Jan. let the shriek of tho locomotive will bo heard as the first passenger train speeds up the Temescal to Elsinpre. Ellwood Cooper. . . Â. A.

Olive culture,may be said to be a new departure in this countrj', and it was, like all new thing», looked upon with distrust and suspicion by the majority of fruit growers in this state \intil some progrcs.sive men, confident of the adaptability of our soil and climate to its successful culture, experimented with equal boldness and success in what is destined to divide with orange growing, the honor of being the , most profitable occupation for fruit men in this section. Foremost among those whose experience is of benefit to-the state on this subject, is Ellwood Cooper of whom tho Riverside Press thus pleasantly discourses : A pleasant drive of thirteen miles out from Santa Barbara, over splendid roads, brings one to Ellwood, the famous ranch and home of Ellwood Cooper, the president of the State Board of Horticulture, consisting of 2,000 acres extending from low water mark of tho Pacific ocean back to the highest elevation on the sloping hills. Four laind-red acres of this ranch are devoted to fruits, prominent among which is tho olive, there being seven thousand olive trees on the place from one to four years old. Mr. Cooper commenced planting the olive in 1872, and is tho pioneer in that industry in the State. Others have followed his lead e.xtenBiyely in the planting and, cultivation of tho olive, for which that section was peculiarly adapted. Jt has been demonstrated by Mr. Cooper to be one of tho most profitable trees to be grown, not only for the oil, but also, for the preserved fruit. In addition to his olive industry the ranch contains twelve thousand five hundred almond trees, four thousand English walnuts, and over-one thousand fruit trees, comprising almost every variety of fruit grown from tho temperate zone to the tropics. Tho ranch is sheltered by eucalyptus trees placed on the boundary lino, which are a great protection to the fruit trees and considerably modify tho climate. They number over 150,-000 trees comprising twenty-five Varieties of the ecualyptus genus. In addition to his fruit industry, Mr." Cooper lias many hundred acres devoted to grain and grazing, and has a herd of 150 Jersey cattle from which he supplies butter to Santa Barbara and San Fran-cii'sco. Everything on this ranch is a monument to tho capabilities , of the climate, aided by a perfect state of cultivation. Tho Marquis of Lome, in, an article in the Youth's companion on the subject of "Opportunities' for young men in America," thus refers to Mr. Cooper: . "The second is a gentleman who. has a magnificicnt farm on the Pacific, and has showh that California can produce better oil than Franco, Spain, or Italy ; grapes as good as any man can desire; Engr lish walnuts and European almonds, in crops whereof tho old countries hardly ever dream; oranges, lemons, and Japanese persimmons, with other fruits and crops too numerous to mention; ■iiind all hedged from tho gentle sea-winds by belts and bands of Australian eucalypti, which grows in ten years to 100 feet. , But such a Paradise is not for the beginner, who must make his money before ho indulges in so many broad acres," We have been thus particular in describing "Ellwood," as it is no only a model ranch, showing whatj intelligent cultivation can do in this sunny clime, but because tho proprietor is one of the most prominent horticulturists in the State, and what ho has dQYio in a. few years, others may do. 'Ellwood Cooper ' was bori\ in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, in 1829; went to Philadelphia when quite a youth and engaged in a store to learn the ways of mej';'' oantilo and city business life, where", after one yeara' experience, ho joined an importing and' shipping hou?o, which was his original aim. In 185.5 he engaged with an East India firm as head clerk, and moved to Port an Prince, St. Domingo, where he lived for ten years, being made a partner in the house after the year. Hia arduous duties and the debilitating heat undermined his health and compelled him to leave and go north to New York, where he connected himself with many different countries, ajid building, ships as well as running a line of steamboats. ' This sort of slavery was not congenial, especially after ten years in the'beautiful warm climate of the. NVost Indies, unfitting him to endure the inclement weather of the Atlantic seaboard cities, and in 1870 he cut loose from mercantile life, and.buying his present home, before starting, came to California and commenced a new life at the age of 41, in this Eldorado of the coast, laying the foundation for tho beautiful "Ellwood" ranch, joining with enthsiasm in tho work of tree planting, fruit raising, sheep husbandry, and catile growing. Having a son and two daughters who needed better educational facilities than were ofTered at that time, he founded the Santa Barbara College, for fitting pupils for the State University; Mr. Cooper has been a constant contributor to the papers, and is the author of three books : ''Report of trade with statistics, between United States and Santa Diniirigo," "Fruit Culture and Eucalyptus Trees," and "Treatise on Olive Cul-^ure." His first effort,in trying to arouso the attention of fruit growers to tho danger of insect pesta was in 1875^ and he has been an active worker in that field ever since. He has been a member of the State Board of Horticulture since its first inception, and in 1883 was elected President of the Bôard, an ofiice he still holds.
