Living In Dakorsfleld, Kern county, he represents what la to all Intents and purposes a section of Southern Cali fornia, the district including San Diego Riverside, Orange, Imperial, San Ber nardino, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Only two of the counties'in < this district are north of Tehachipi trass— Korn, with a considerable popu lation, and Inyo, with next to nothing.

If Los Angeles languishes, the effect is felt in every county of Mr. 'Smith's dis...
