The Fhíílo'Valley Railway has been built by him, and it is his intention to continue it southward to Santa Ana Valley, thence to tidewater. He has also been a leading promoter of the Pomona an if Elsinore Railway, and expects to see that line eventually extended to San Diego. The extensive improvements at Chino village have been made solely by him, and numerous are the -business entertiri.ses with which his name is associated. An industry in which he is financially interested, and from which he exiiects big results, is boring for jietroleura, several oil wells already being in successful operation in Southern California. , HISTORICAL. Chino ranch is rich in historical events. The early immigrants to California by the southern route found here accomniQ-dations to rest themselves and animals. In the possession of Mr. Gird is a large book containing autogi-aphic accounts of the tedious and dangerous trip, fights, with the Indians, etc. This ranch has been the scene of many Indian attacks, and also of fights among the Aniericans and Mexicans when California was acquired. Chino rarich is charmingly • located, the scenery a combination of valley, hill and mountain, being liighly attractive. The many buildings on the ranch are in e.\celleut condition and everything is ke[»t ill order.
