So far as we have been able to learn,
the delegates from this county to the
Democratic State Convention will
support Thomas Findley for Gover
nor, Jose G. Estudillo of San Diego
for State Treasurer and B. D. Wilson
We are authorized to state that
Hon. Antonio F. Coronel accepts
the appointment of delegate to the
Democratic State Convention, and
that the use of his name by the Inde
pendent county committee was unau
thorized. Mr. Coronel has been an
honored member of the Democratic
party, and he will give his best efforts
to that party only.
The San Francisco Post says the
Central Pacific railroad company con
trol the Los Angeles Herald. The
Post lies—under a mistake. No rail
road company owns or controls a type
in the Herald office, nor does the
Central Pacific railroad company con
trol the Post, though we happen to
know they can do so the moment they
consider the game worth the candle.
We are pleased to see our citizens
taking an active interest in the for
mation of another fire compauy. A
single company, even though com
posed of brave and experienced fire
men such as ours, cannot fully protect
a city as large as Los Angeles against
the ravages of fire. Stockton, with a
less population and a great deal
smaller area than our city, has three
first-class fire engines, one hand en
gine and a complete hook and ladder
apparatus, with four full companies,
composed of the best citizens of the
place. Surely we ought to have at
least two engines, and as the citizens
have enrolled themselves for duty, the
Council should lose no time in pro
viding them with an engine. The
cost of the full equipment will be
more than saved at the first impor
tant fire that occurs. Under the con
trol of our efficient Chief, Charlie
Miles, another company such as he
now has will enable him to protect
the city against the combined efforts
of the incendiaries that from time to
time show their handiworK among us.
The Common Council have offered
a reward of fifteen huudred dollars for
the best scheme for constructing irri
gating canals and zanjas. Now, the
question that is puzzling many is,who
is to be the judge of the plans sub
mitted and who is to say which is to
be the best, most economical and
practical ? Not the Council, we hope;
and yet that august body believes its
self competent to pass judgment on
the most difficult question or abstruse
problem that over mathematical gen
ius invented. But, unfortunately, this
confidence is not shared by the public,
nor has this community any great
amount of faith in the ability of the
Council to discriminate between a
good and a bad plan for irrigation. In
fact, considerable distrust is mani
fested as to the good faith of that fif
teen hundred dollar reward proposi
tion, and fears are expressed that it is
but the beginning of a job which will
cost this city many thousand dollars.
The people will take it as a favor on
the part of the present Council if they
will not undertake any work of im
portance. Their experiments so far
have not given out results calculated
to create confidence in their wisdom
to plan or ability to execute.
We are indebted to tbe Schoolmaster
for a suggestion which is well worth
considering, and we believe acting
upon, by the people of Los Angeles
county. It is that there be no party
nominations for County Superintend
ent of Public Schools. A number of
gentlemen have already announced
themselves as candidates for that
office. We do not know the politics of
any of these candidates, nor do we
care to know. We had rather know
that an aspirant for this office thor
oughly understands the duties of the
position and will make a careful and
efficient County Superintendent, than
to know that he is a Republican or a
Democrat. If there are party nomi
nations, the nominee of the strongest
party will in all probability be elected;
yet he may not be the best man for
the place, and will owe his election
more to politics than to his fitness or
qualifications for the office. With the
Schoolmaster, we believe that nomin
ating conventions will best subserve
the interests of the public schools by
omitting to nominate candidates for
the County Superintendent. Let the
people select that officer on his merit
and capability, without regard to re
ligion, politics, or previous condition
As anticipated in another article in
to-days paper the meeting of the State
Board of Education on the Ist instant
was a sort of cat and dog affair. The
He was bandied back and forth be
tween members with all of the vehe
mence and none of the easy grace
whicli characterizes a fish-woman's
quarrel. The reader text book ques
tion came up for discussion, and reso
lutions to throw out McGuffey's
readers, the geographies and other
books now in use, as soon as the law
permits, were passed, and only Bo
lander and Crawford of San Joa
quin voting no. When the Board re
solved itself into a committee to pre
pare the necessary notice of change
Mr. Bolander refused to act, and
withdrew, giving as his reason for so
doing that the resolutions were illegal.
The action of the Board is a step in
the direction, though it does not place
Bancroft's readers ln the schools;
and if, as is probable, the Legislature
abolishes the State Board, they will
never get into the schools. The pres
ent Board is a disgrace to the State.
When our educational heads cannot
come together without branding eaoh
other as liars and rascals, the School
Department will be better off without
A Supreme Council.
Whatever may be thought of the
Common Council of this city it can
not be said they are wanting In cheeky
defiance of the will anil wishes of the
people. The right of petition, never
denied and almost always accorded, is
totally ignored by this supreme Coun
cil of ours, and a petition signed by a
large proportion of our leading citi
zens receives no more consideration at
their hands than if It was the prayer
of a street beggar. Some time ago
Councilman Campbell, of the First
Ward, resigned, and at the last meet
ing of the Council a petition was pre
sented, signed by about one hundred
citizens, including Mr. Campbell,
asking the Council to appoint Mr.
Gerkins to the vacancy. When the
petition was read, and before the
names of the signers were reached, on
motion the Council dispensed with
the reading of the signatures, and by
an almost unanimous vote appointed
Mr. Cami-bell to the place he had
resigned, and to which he had recom
mended Mr. Gerkins. We are also
informed that severalCouncilmen vis
ited Mr. Campbell on Thursday and
urged him to accept the appointment,
stating tiiat they did not care whether
he appeared in his seat once a month
so he would consent to fill the vacan
cy. What does this mean? Is the
ring afraid of Mr. Gerkins or of any
other gentleman whom the leading
citizens of the First Ward recommend
to a seat in the Council?
Will Not Create Sickness.
Some one asks the question, " Will
not irrigation increase sickness?"
There is no reason why it should, and
many reasons why it should not. We
have never heard that shade trees,
grassy lawns and waving fields were
productive of the diseases to which the
human family is heir. Pools of stand
ing water awl decaying vegetation are
malaria breeding, but there is little
danger of water standing in the fields
sufficiently long to become stagnant
and vegetation in sufficient quantities
to become dangerous is not found on
the land of the thrifty farmer. It is a
mistaken notion that grain fields need
flooding from time to time to insure
their productiveness. In almost all
valleys in this State, if the ground is
thoroughly moistened in the early
part of May, a good crop is assured.
Trees, shrubbery and gardens need
water later in the season. But in the
early Fall, when malarious fevers
most prevail, no irrigation is needed
or will be done on any crops save
grasses and pasturage. If further evi
dence were needed, we point to the
localities where irrigation has been
practiced for years. No unusual sick
ness has prevailed there. Let us have
the groves and the green fields and
we will chance the sickness.
The Holyoke Disaster.
Spring-field, Mass., Junesth.— The
Coroner's jury in theHolyoke disaster
rendered a verdict this evening. They
find that no blame is attached to any
Cerson in connection with the affair,
ut say they cannot too strongly con
demn the almostcriminal carelessness
in the construction of the galleries
and mode of egress therefrom. They
declare that parties who build such
death traps should reoeive the un
measured censure of the community,
and find that the cause of the fire arose
from the use of trimmings of laces,
paper, etc., and the fact that the build
ing was sheathed with pine instead of

Incendiarism at Virginia City.
Virginia, June 2,—About 10 o'clock
last night an attempt was made to
set fire to Adams' two-story dwelling
house, on B street. It is occupied as
a lodging house by Mrs. Orndorll'.
Some newspapers and several articles
of ladies' wearing apparel were satu
rated with coal oil and set on fire, in
a closet on the seoond floor. The
room was occupied by two telegraph
operators, who were at the theatre at
the time. The fire was extinguished
without calling upon the fire depart
ment. It is supposed the attempt
was made by some of the many vag
abonds and thieves who have been ar
rested and ordered to leave town.

out enmcuse; tuey will lose the richest treat of
