A work on the abutments of the Crockett Street Bridge has been commenced. American wine. Splendid Sherry now made in Arizona Good american Champagne. From the Washington Post. The extent to which the vineyards of Europe have been devastated by the phylloxera and various diseases of the Vine is Little known in this country but it is really so great that the wine Industry is in danger of being completely paralysed. In France and Italy three fourths of the vineyards have been wholly destroyed by the phylloxera within five years Aud the remaining fourth Are rapidly yielding to the plague. Five years ago Spain produced six times the amount of grapes that was harvested there last year and the same thing is True of Germany. The worst thing about the ills that beset the Vine in those countries is that they Are irremediable. A sorts of protect Yective measures against the phylloxera have been adopted and they have either been without result or Only partial and temporary in their effect. The fact is the Vin lauds of Europe where wine Bas been produced continuously for a thousand years Are for the most part worn out Aud what is needed for successful Vine cultivation is a change of soil and locality. This is shown by the fact that european vines which have been giving poorer results year by year flourish marvellously when transferred to California Essec tally if grafted upon some sturdy native Vine. Accordingly those in a position to know Are confident that before Long the United states will Lead the world in the production of the grape and that the old world will have to rely almost entirely on this production for its sup ply of first class wines. For two years past great quantities of red and White still wines Nave been shipped from this country to Europe and it is predicted that it will not be Many years before the american champagnes will be equal to the Best products of France. In California alone there Are 45,000 acres planted in vines and last year there were produced from this acreage 87,-000,00 Gallons of if Cine valued at $24,000,000, and giving employment to 100,000 men. Better sherries it is said Are produced in Arizona than in the famous Xeres wine District of Spain Aud the Best port known in this country is made from grapes grown in new Mexico. For Many years great quantities of Catawba wine has been very successfully produced at Kelley a Island and Tho other islands of the archipelago near the Western end of Lake Erie and in almost All the Middle and Southern states wines of different varieties have been made without difficulty on a Small Soale. A these states have special adaptations for particular varieties of the Vine and the experience of California indicates that the varying of their agriculture by the introduction of this special culture would be attended with prosperous results. The failure of the winegrowers of Europe should prove the Opportunity of the wine growers of America and As a great demand will certainly imply Good prices it should stimulate production to such an extent that it need not All be confined to California.
