A LITTLE SHOP TALK.
Hitherto we have not had space to
notice the kind defence made for ns
by tliuAV itmhii J'rcsn, signinst some
one who came to it with : charge of
plagiarism against this paper. The
ground of the charge was an article
headed, "Dead-beat Sugar." If,
as our accuser believed, the article
was somewhat identical with one
that appeared in the New York
jYuftcm, it was only a fresh proof of
the old saying tint great minds run
in grooves that is, assuming that
the mind directing the ATulioii is a
great one. As a matter of fact, we
do not remember having ever seen
the paper in question, or any article
credited to it. Some of the facts
given in that article were gained
from various readings, but tlio bulk
of them were placed within-quolation
marks, and credited to " an Ameri
can paper." Our deductions from
the facts were entirely our own. In
this connection let us add to the
appropriate remarks of the Saturday
J'rcss, a few words to remove n,
popular misapprehension of the
functions of an editor. An editor's
solo business is not to write original
essays. That is only a small part
of his work. His labors comprise
culling, extracting, selecting, digest
ing, condensing and adapting the
most heterogeneous materials from
a thousand different sources. It is
lack of the versatile capacity for
these and other functions which
causes the many failures of journal
istic enterprises attempted to be
floated upon mere individual talent
and ability iu original composition.
In short, the typical editor of all
work must above all have capacity
for using his raw material to the best
advantage, both with regard to the
space at his disposal and the varied
classes of minds and tastes he has to
The Jlmcaiiun has recently had
a scries of articles upon the desira
bility of some change iu the present
mutual arrangements of the Oceanic
and the Faciiic Mail Steamship Com
panies, whereby the public might
receive the full benefit of their ser
vices. It is a very hopeless case.
Our Legislature granted an exorbi
tant subsidy to the Oceanic Com
pany, almost unconditionally. The
Oceanic Company requites our gene
rous treatment by enforcing an out
rageous bargain with the Pacific
Mail Company, whereby the latter
is inhibited from serving us in any
way between here and San 1'ran
eisco, except carrying the mails.
Tho way the steamers of the two
lines fail to connect when they
might easily do so is one of
the exasperating results of this
unjustifiable compact. But what is
tho use of the press making a fuss
about tho matter? If it suited the
interests of tho Messrs. Sprcckcls to
make the desired changes, no doubt
they would not require to be advo
cated. As the unsatisfactory ar
rangements continue, tiic inference
can only bo that what tho taxpayers,
merchants and traveling public de
sire, it does not suit the owners of
the Oceanic line to grant. Such will
continue to be the order of things
hero so long as this country mani
fests its consent to being governed
for the benefit of monopolists,
oligarchs and speculators.
A GmtMAN- nnd his wifo advertise
. A NEW LADOn PROJECT.
California agriculturists arc trying
negro labor as mi antidote to the
Chinese, with apparent prospects of
sueccssi The new help is remark
ably cheap, and of courso there can
be no question of its adaptability to
plantation work. From the state
ments made by ti California planter
in the extract given below, we should
imagine that if there is to be disap
pointment of , any kind in these
Islands regarding labor projects now
on fool, our planters might profitably
turn their attention to the American
black man. The following is a
special despatch from St. Louis,
Missouri, to a Now York paper:
Among tho arrivals this morning
was I 31. Ownbcy, of llakersllcld,
Cal. He stopped to make arrange
ments for the transportation over tho
Northern Pacific Railroad of 1 , 100 ne
groes from Chattanooga to Ilakcrs-
lleltl. Ownbey is agent of Ilaggin
it Tcvis, two of the wealthiest men
of. the Golden Stale, "who have a
plan for the driving out of China
men." Said Ownbcy: "Last spring
I transported !!00 negroes from Ten
nessee, and tiic plan proved a suc
cess. Ilaggin lias 000,000 acres of
land in Kern county, upon which he
has constantly employed 1,500
Chinamen, eacli one costing 25 per
month. A Chinaman is unbearable
as a workman, for he is slow, cunning
and thievish. Truly, lie is the curse
of California. 1 have found no trouble
in getting negroes. I make a written
contract with them, giving the men
$li! per mouth and board, the women
SS and board and boys get SO and
board. The !100 already colonized
are perfectly satisfied. They are
settled on land, live in good houses
and draw their wages monthly.
They work under superintendents, at
farming, picking and preserving
fruit, and in dairies and raising cot
ton. This last industry is a novelty
for California. We have raised 800
bales of cotton this year. The result
has been that we have almost rid
ourselves, of Chinamen. Indeed, so
well known has our success become
ip Kern county that 1 have received
orders for the colonizing of 10,000
negroes, whom I expect to obtain
this winter. In the negro Califor
nia sees her only hope against China
men." EDITORIAL NOTES.

to have gone the way of most advo

The report of the Queen's Hospi
tal for the past quarter, which ap
pears elsewhere, would indicate that
the institution is in a very elllcicnt
state. All the deaths that occurred
were cases where the patients were
in a dying condition when admitted,
and with those exceptions the num
ber of discharges was equal to the
number of admissions.
Arguments are given at length in
the Advertiser to-day, to prove that
there is not an excess of silver Cur
rency in the country. Let the Gov
ernment open an exchange at the
Treasury or anywhere else, where
those who want to buy or to sell
silver currency may do so, and tho
question will bo settled sooner and
more satisfactorily than in aoy other
way. YVc know several places where
silver is still iu more demand than
gold as Saturday afternoon ap
proaches. It rests with the Govern
ment, at all events, to take such
action as will prevent speculators
from making a corner in silver, by
which to rob the public.
Wells, Fargo &. Co. lately brought
suit iu the United States District
Court, at Portland, Oregon, to com
pel the Northern Pacific Railroad
Company to carry express over its
line, and won the case. It was or
dered that the defendant furnish the
ordinary facilities to plaintiff on its
road between Oregon and St". Paul,
and its connecting lines ; also to give
the same advantages as to any other
express company. "We would sug
gest that a test case be made by the
Chamber of Commerce hero against
the Pacific Mail Steamship Company,
to compel it to carry passengers and
freight between' here and San Fran
cisco. Sonic people arc of opinion
that the lofusai of business by this
common carrier is illegal.
Tho following facts arc given iu
the report of Professor Wiley, che
mist of the American Department of
Agriculture: Laboratories have
been established in Wisconsin and
Indiana, for experimenting with tho
manufacture of sugar from sorghum.
The total yield of sorghum sugar for
this year is not likely to exceed 1,-
500,000 pounds, and the yield of
syrup is about .'10,000,000 gallons.
Sugar beet culluro is prospering in
California', and the factory at Alva
redo the only one in the United
States has made n largo quantity
of sugar this season. Beets grown
by tho Department of Agriculture
the present season show a low per
centage of sugar. Tho Department
has established a laboratory in Loui
siana to study tho chemistry of sugar
manufacture. It is felt that new
methods of manufacture will havo to
be introduced if prices remain as
they are, or the nugar industry of
the country will languish.
