The caucus held in the packing bouse of the San Dimns Orange Growers' Association last Tuesday evening, revealed the fnc!. that there ia an overwhelming sentiment nmong the growers of citrus fruits that the Hon. James MeLachlin shall be returned to the next congress as the representative of this district. All the speakers of the evening emphasized the point that tariff re> vision \vtis in the air, and that when the subject was once opened up, the powerful fruit importer's associations of the Eastern cities, assisted by their paid lobbyists, would bo sure to make a terrible assault on the duty that alone makes possible a market for California oranges and lemons. James McLachlin was second to none of the California representatives in the fight that gave our growers protection; indeed he was instrumental in getting for our fruits bet- er protection than we had even dared to hope would be possible. In view of these things and knowing that our interests will be cared 'for by Mr. MoLachlin as it will not be possible for any new man to care for them, the sentiment was unanimous that any attempt to displace Lim at this time would be an unfriendly act towards citrus frnit growers and detrimental to their interests. With these things in mind, ' the following resolutions were prepared and unanimously adopted: Be it resolved, that we, Republican voters of San Dimas ic convention assembled, do hereby renew our allegiance to the doctrines and principles of the Republican party; that we fully endorse the present administration and declare that the benefits derived from the acts of this administration have been of far greater value to the common people than the results of any administration since the foundation of the Republican party; and be it further resolved, that in these, the closing days of the administration, we will forever love, cherish and revere that one greatest of all human rulers, our own beloved Theodore Roosevelt; and it is further resolved, that whereas the protective tariff created by the Dingley bill, which baa proven itself entirely just to both producer and oon- ..,,sumer, is the only method by whieh markets can be procured for onr citrus fruits, the only avenue by wln'Hb prosperity cau come to the California fruit grower, meaning that at all hazards the present tariff must be maintained and that we do, each and all of us, pledge ourselves that we will as individuals urge upon our renresentatives at Washington the vital importance of maintaining the present protective tariff upon California's greatest industry.—Sau Dimas Eagle. ALABAMA TALE IS DRAMATIC. Sheriff's Story of a Feud Ending In Murder. Sheriff W. C. Carroll of Pike county, Alabama, and Deputy F. C. Blackmail arrived in Los Angeles Saturday to take Davis Whitehead, alias Prank Smith, who is charged with murder, to Troy. Whitehead was arrested nearly three weeks ago on the ranch of J. O. Houser wn Han Bernardino road. The killing of John Riohnurg at Hopewell on August 1, 100G, caused a feud between that family and Whitehead's which has continued since. Wbitfihead, although scarcely more than '22 years old, is considered one of the best revolver shots in Alabama. He was a rjuict fellow and was pointed to by mothers as a model. On the diite referred to, a camp meeting was being held at Hopewell. Several hundred farmers were, present, including Whitehead uml Richbnrg. Both drank more whiskey than was good for them and when they encountered each other, there was trouble. Alter they had called each other names, Whitehead reached for his revolver. Kichhuru, who was only 18 years of age, turned and ran. Other men tried to restrain Whitehead but he leveled his revolver at the retreating figure of Kichbnrg, then fifty yards nway, and fired. The bullet killed instantly. Whitehead, according to the story of Sheriff Carroll, v.ent to the budy of his victim, looked ui it for a moment aod then mounted his hor^e and rode towards tin; euamps. For weeks he hid in the sw-arnps while his people took of him and then ho got away an 1 had not been seen since or n;-en heard fixrn until located lu (,'oviua. Beaumont Acres and Lots Are In Demand.

Acres of these lands hnv-e been set out to vines, while Clem P. Johnson, formerly of Rhyolite, has bought an adjoining piece of property, fifteen acres in extent, for apple raising and viticulture. Most of the buyers of the lots and acreage are contracting to have their land planted to trees and vines before the ink is dry on their deeds, and Los Angeles seed houses aud nursery men report a heavy demand for their stocks r'rom Beaumont.
