Water Projeot. nn- *f fVi » ; !..inmnn [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

Water Project. <> At a meeting of the Common Council held last Monday evening, a proposition was handed in by Wm. G. Dryden, Esq, to introduce water from the river through the western section of the city, and thence to the unoccupied lands immediately below, by means of a new zanga or iron pipes, for a specified consideration.— Mr D. proposes to complete the undertaking in five years, and at the end of twenty years the whole work to become the property of the city. He requires, as compensation, two square leagues of land adjoining the northern corporation limits, and privileges to make bridges, cross roads, private lands, &c. The water during the twenty years to be under his control, but free to every person who will pay for using it. The proposition was referred to a committee who will probably make a report at the next meeting of the Council. ¶ Although we presume the oitizens of this place are of one mind in regard to the benefits likely to resul...

IlalfW^llouie." [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

IlalfW^llouie." We rejoice to learn that Messrs Alexander aftd Banning-, present enterprising proprietors of San Pedro, have commenced the erec tion of a building at the locality known as the "half way place," on the upper road between this city and San Pedro. A house at that point will be found of the utmost convenience to travellers, as tho want of it has heretofore been a -ourci of complaint; and wc hope it will be no less profitable to the proprietors. There is an abundance of land in the vicinity which •an be irrigated, and we doubt not ere long new buildings will be put up, and a town organized. The day may be distant, but it will surely come, when the whole vast plain between us and the sea coast will teem with an industrious farming population. VVe have plenty of water to supply the whole tract, were it well and judiciously distributed; and that it will be soon cannot be a matter of doubt to those who are familiar with American progression.

Corpus Christ I. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

Corpus Christ I. Thursday was celebrated by our Catholic 'community as the anniversary of Corpus Christi. Service was held at the ohurch in the forenoon, and in the afternoon men, women and children, headed by the Padre and his church officials, marched in proccssion around the public plopa. The ceremonies were to us interesting—raiher more interesting than intelligible— and the assemblage was greater than any wo have heretofore seen on alike occasion. The bevy of Senoritas was unusually large, presenting, as they wended their way along, their dark lustrous eyes peering from the rich rebosa which partially concealed the face,their graceful formw arrayed in coetly and beautiful ■iliSjund their dignified and elegant carriages most captivating sight. The coremonies were interspersed with the firing of cannon, ringing of bells, and other demonstrations of joy.

Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

Communication. We understand that a proposition has been made to the Hon. Common Council of this city, having for its object an improvement in the manner of supplying the city with water from Los Angeles river, and likewise to convey the same over the vacant and unoccupied lands Southwest of the city. We have been waiting a long time to see some action taken by the city authorities or individual enterprise for the advancement and development of the natural resources of the city. It seems that the time has arrived by a natural process, when improvement and advancement, if protected by a liberal policy, will make their presence useful and agreeable to the community. We are aware that it has been the desire for many years to make the water privileges of the corporation useful, and to bring under cultivation the dry and vacant lands of the city. From the magnitude of the undertaking, and perhaps the limited means of the Treasury, the corporate authorities have not attempted the initiati...
