The San Buena Ventura Flfee rress is the lettding republioan pafler in its section of tbh State. Tn a rfeent editorial on the Anti-Saloon Ropi4)lican conference to be held in New Y'ork, May 2d, it said: “The object of this conference is to effect, if possible, the “complete withdrawal of the National Republican party from all complicity^with saloon mfamy, and to emphasize its positive antagonism thereto.” This is a step which the party must take, if it wishes to suc-ceetlv * *, There arc thousands of voters in every State who have been voting With and supporting the Prohibition party, who have tonnwly been Republi-OROS, and in all other matters are stfll Republicans, who will return to and vote and work for the Republican party, if complicity with the saloon is eliminated from the party practices. One thing is certain, if any thing in the Republican platform shall, in the remotest degree attack the saloon or the saloon method, it will alienate the few saloon votes left in the party, while on the other hand if nothing is said on this matter, or if the declaration shall be yi the'least friendly to the traffic, the loss to the party from the Prohibitionists will be sufficient to endanger a defeat at the polls in November. The Free Press is a Republican pajier, and desires Republican success. It lecognizes the fact that the saloon is a factor in politics; also that Prohibition is another. * * The Republican party is a progressive party, and must take advanced ground on this liquorquestion, or suffer the conseqtiences. The Democratic party has the courage of its convictions and utters them boldly and defiantly. It is the avowed friend and defender of the saloon, and as such can be depended upon to secure the saloon vote and influence. That vote and influence is irretrievably lost to the Republican party, except where the lor ii| saloon influence is strong enough to use the party for its o\vn selfish ends. Is it wisdom on the part of the party to ensure defeat by nursingthis octopus which only embraces to destroy. We hope and belieA'e that the Cliicagó convention will meet this matter boldly and settle it gaU«f‘'-+—5L-' • •• ¿ oftl"? But if it does not, then what? The Santa Ana Blade, another leading and vigorous Refmblican paper, has taken similar ground on the great saloon struggle within the^ party. Likewise the Riverside Press and Ontario Record, both ably edited Republican papers; and several others in less commanding centers of influence have done the same. And Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, Iowa’s great ^female apostle of anti-saloon Republicanism, a few weeks ago, in a letter to Albert Griffin, sounded the same warning note^ of danger to the party if it i-efused to commit itself boldly and unequivocally against the liquor business. The Los Angeles Times, which is reputed to be the leading and dominant Republican organ of South California, maintains that the Republican party is notin favor of prohibition, but simply of restriction, of regulation, of “high licence.'’ AVell, the principal distillers and brewers of the Western States have officially declared themselves in favor of “high licensé;” that it does not lessen the sale of liquors; and it gives their business a legal and honorable fffanding. Thus the Times and the liquor men are entirely agreéd and will pull together on that line. And what ai'e anti-saloon Republicans to do when that policy is forced on the party? Again: As to the idea of the San Buená Ventura Free Press, and’ of Mrs. d. Ellen Foster, that the party con save itself by adopting certain anti-saloon resolutions. It is an oiien question whether it is not too late for that. The Republican party refused to do it in national convention four years ago, and has refused to do it in every State except Iowa. The writer hereof helped to place the party on that footing in Iowa, and hoped to aid in doing the same thing in California. But now the Prohibition party is organized as such in every State in the Union. Every State has appointed deleg.'it»" national convention to n-- “8'- tional ticket: and '' \ike\y that they will ' retire from the ^ ,<iO matter what position the ^.dorican party may take at this late day. Hence the present prospect is that the anti-saloon vote this year will be divided between the Republican and the Prohibition parties, just ns in 1856 the anti-slavery vote was dividetl between the Whig and the Republican parties: and the “other fellows” will get the offices. But during tlie ensuing four years the anti-saloouists will gradually all master on one side and the ipto-^oouists on the other, both North and South, and the great cause will then be carried not only as a national issue, but will become a matter of internationcd comity, and the inqiortation of liquors will be phu'ed under s|)ocial rostralut. SeiiatoTs Blair, of New Hamwshire,.Wilson, of Iowa, Frye, of Maine, Colquitt, of Georgia, Reagan, of Texas, and others, with the eye of sterling stntesinaniliip aliTttdy look hirward to such an outcome, as did also Chief Justice Walfe fa bis lifcliiue, Winning the Market. A large firm of fruit dealers in Cincinnati, which has "been handling California fruits, has issued a lengthy circular for distribution in California, which contains some points upon methods of packing, etic., which should be of general interest. For example, they say that dried fruit in sacks finds more ready sale than that in boxes. Cotton sacks holding sixty pounds each are recommended. Raisins in sacks are also said to sell well, and raisin growers are advised to try this method of packing a portion of their product. In packing peaches it is recommended that unpealed ones should be faced with skins _up, .while ¡lealed ones should be faced the other way. Apricots should always bi*faced skins up. - Raisins are recommended to be put in. rtventy-two pound boxes instead of twenty pound, as is now the case. This is in order to compete with the Malaga raisins, which are packedin boxes of the former size. The cream of the markl^t is got bj~ early shipment, hence the importance of being located in’an “early fruit section”^ and of hasteping the preparation of the crop wheb ripe. Loose raisins, or culls, put in fifty pound boxes, sell readily at four and five cents a pound. In canned fruit, the California article is pronounced superior to anything else. The largest sale is for standard fruit, aüd^ot for extras, hence all the effort should be directed to the production of good and not fancy fruits. • The best selling frui^ are Lemon Cling, Crawford and White Heath peaches, white cherries, Bar+i^t pears and Green Gage plums. When people get acquainted with the fruit, however, apricots and nectarines should be added to the list. The white nectarine when canned cannot be excelled for beauty of appearance-or for delicacy of flavor. A large trade in that fruit is sure to result.—[Southern Californian. Georgia must be a queer bid State. Last week John S.^ughes, of Atlanta, made out a bill of sale of himself to Gus Kagleraacher, a German farmer, in liquidation of a debt he owed.

Luncheon at the White House is^ served early, and is cold.

Those who are intei^ted in' securing a good forage grass for the foothills will be glad to rtead the following from tlie Carson Appeal: The more the appeal investigates the subject of espercet. the moré convincing becpmea the proof that it is the grand fodder plant of Nevada. Yesterday it had an interview with George Rammelskamp, whohas bwn fpr fourteen years the foreman of the Sutro Tunnel ranch. Knowing that he h£^ been a practical ranker in Germ&ny, the writer asked him to tell what .he küew about espercet. “I know all about the plant,’* said Mr. Rammelskamp. “I have raised a great deal of it in Germany, It is the prinoipal fodder grass of that country. Yet I would hardly call it a giass but a weed. It grows rank and quiek, will do without irrigation, seeds do*n rapidly, and is perennial. It will grpw on the worst land you can find in this State. I have seenit scattered on land that seemed to'be nothing but grit. It was worse than sandy land; regular grit, vemingly useless, but espercet would grow flifcly on it. I have seen it planter! on hard, red soil that would resist a pt‘k, and yet the espercet would grow from eighteen inchcfi to two feet high on it without water. Still a little irrigaYioi is a great improvement. "With one irrigation in the spring it will grow to a man's chin, and so rank and thick that men want extra pay to mow it. I have seen 1 seven tons to the acre cut in Germany, and a German acre is smaller^than an American acre. For espercet, take any of the big sandy deserts, so called, of the State, and you can turn them into big espercet fields. A few summer showers will make the plants grow high and rank. It fattens stcK'k rapidly, and makes cows give milk splendidly. A million tons of espercet could be raised in Nevada in places which are now considered worthless for anything. It will not seed the first year, but after that it is a heavy seeder. The seed grows in pods and yields tremendously. I will send to Germany for large quantities of the seed this summer.
