a District Court or tbe United
States for the Southern District of
California, and to the granting of
a term or terms of the Supreme
Court of Californis to this section,
with its forum at Los Angeles.
Ws ars pleased to learn that the
Judges of the Supreme Court thstSV
salves sympathize with this de
mand, aud that they are anxious
to escape tbs Summer heats of Sac
ramento by taking refuge in our
orange groves, aud enjoying the
delights of our equable climate.
We heartily urge our representa
tives iv Sacramento to see to it
that this last boon shall be grsuted
to us. Our reliance for tlie ulti
mate creatiou of a State of South
California is on tho chapter of po
litical accidents. We think the
Democratic party is destined to re
turn to power shortly, aud, wheu
it does, finding itself in possession
of the Executive and both I ranches
of tbe National Legislature, it will
show much lees sagacity than its
New England opponents if it
misses the opportunity of creating
new Democratic Commonwealths.
Texas and California will offer it
its opportunity. It is hardly
necessary for us to say that the few
offices thereby created havo but
little part In the aspirations of
those who favor the creation of a
■ew State. Two new Pacific Coast
Senators, however, would be very
useful to this section, without re
gard to the vulgar, office-holding
| gratification it might afford to
I some of the luckier of our citizens.
We cordially second the senti
ment of "Vox," a correspondent of
the Express, when he suggests that
that able journal should he sus
tained by tho people of Los Ange
les. We believe that the Express
means well, and that it intends to
champion the best interests of Lss
Angeles. But wlion "Vox" pro
ceeds to say that the Express is
the only independent thing iv Los
Angeles he insults the great mass
of our people, aud he ignores the
Tact'hat the Herald is as perfect
' dependent as any paper ever
. -Lushed in this State. The Ex
press believes the Texas Pacific
Railway guarantee has a chance of
passage. We don't, and therefore
we hang no hope, upon it. We be
lieve that, if it passes, Stanford &
Co. will build this end of tlie road,
therefore we are not particularly
s.-'xioua that it should pass. As we
neve" believed that the McFadden
Bros, could accomplish much, we
never said they sould. O-* thing
we have believed in, and that is
that if our people were uuited we
could secure the passage of a fair
freights nnd fares bill. We are rap
idly letting the acceptable time
pass away for making a formidable
demonstration In favor of this just
and legitimate demand of
the people, although, shortly
after the visit of ex-Governor
Brown, we got up a notable dem
onstration in favor of tlie Texas
Pacific guarantee of Tom Scott.
Why this difference, ye frienda of
the people? Some of you will say
tbat you don't think there is v
probability of the passage of such a
measure. Well, there is at least a
chance of the passage of a fares and
freights bill, just aa there is, not
withstanding our incredulity, a
chance ef tbe passage of the Texas
Pacilio guarantee. Why not, there
fore demonstrate aud bloviate in
favor of this, as we did of the other?
Echo answers, "Why?"
We publish in our local columns
a rather long but cleverly written
communication by Mr. H. McLel
lan, the Los Angeles Agent of the
Pacific Coa.it Steamship Company.
Ordinarily, it would take up too
much space to be readily admitted
into our columns, because we do
not specially favor long communi
cations; but as Mr. MoLallan has
tendered it to the Republican, and
that paper, after giving occasion
for it, has declined to publish it,
we regard it as ouly fair that the
Company should obtain a hearing.
It gives its an opportunity of say
ing a word which we have long de
sired to say. A. number of news
papers, which probably do not
mean to do us an injustice, have
taken a delight in representing the
Herald as specially favorable to,
or rather an organ of, tbe Southern
Pacific Railway. This arises from
tbe fact that our attitude to
wards the Railway, and towards
all corporations and public ques
tions, has been conservative. For
good or evil, we find that corpora
tion planted in our midst. It is
powerful for either good or ill to
this community. We endorse
neither the extravagant adulation
ot which it has heeu tbe recipient,
nor what we regard as the equally
extravagant denunciation which
-as been directed against it. We
receive for publishing its schedule
$12 a mouth, neither more nor
less. We think we gi T e value re
ceived for this advertisement. The
fact that it appears lo the Herald
has never caused us to dot a lower
case I, nor omit to cross a lower
case t. That advertisement, and
that only, is tbs sum total of
t.'vj favor this journal, under
its present management, has
ever received from the Southern
Pacific Railway. We sympathize
intensely, and, we think, in an
enlightened manner, with the wel
fare of the people of Lot Angeles.
We have not felt ourselves called
upon to put a chip on our shoulder,
In order tbat that corporation
should knock it off. We believe
that, by united efforts, we might
get an equitable freights and fares
bill, and we are enthusiastically in
favor of that measure. We are
afraid that some of our contempo
raries, in baying tlio moon, by
pursuing (he unattainable, will
fail to give this feasible aud legiti
mate agitatisn the strength which
a united Southern California would
undoubtedly impart to It.

ASNifnt' ovary Bth.—
Montg/ PUBLIBHE-£rf oUi9 - of
Delegates to-day introduced a res
olution memorializing Congress.
It sets forth that the late Elec
toral bill provided that no decision
of tbe Presidential election under
that act should preclude a judicial
decision of the question. That act
contemplated a decision of the case
submitted. The Electoral Com
mission by the judicial tribunal
provision held Itself incompetent
to inquire whether some of the
State returns were true or false aud
that the President is seated in vir
tue of notoriously fraudulent re
turns, whioh Justioe Strong, whose
vote seated him, has admitted und
as the President himself has ad
mitted by disregarding the returns
iv the matter of the State officers
whose titles were identical with
his own. Whilst the repudiation
of these returns by the incumbent,
for all purposes save his own
elestiou, is an admission that It
was a fraud to use them for that
purpose, tlio motives which in
duced this partial repudiation
greatly aggravates his offence. That
by the published statement of John
Young Brown, which has remained
uncontradicted slr.ee April, 1877,
it appears that this repudiation
was the condition imposed by said
Brown and bis associates, then
holding the balance of power in
the House of Representatives, and
upou which alone the incumbent
would ho allowed to be counted
into office. It was upou these
false returns that this condition
was accepted for the inounibent by
Stanley Matthewi and Charles
Foster, then uud since his closest
frieuds ai.d most authoritative rep
representatives; that Brown aud
his associates had been elected as
adversaries of the incumbent, but
had separated Irom the
great body of their political
associates in the House of Repre
sentatives to carry into effect said
arrangement; that at the time of
entering into it they were the lead
ing advocates of a bill then pend
ing in the House to grant a large
subsidy to the Texas Pacific Rail
road Company, to which the Presi
dent elect was known to be oppos
ed, and it is a just inference that,
whilst they were willing to defeat
his inauguration, for this reason
they could not venture to act with
their political opponents for that
object, if such co-operation in
volved also tho surrender of the
local governments of the States in
question as well as their electoral
votes to their political opponents;
that to remove this obstacle it vus
stipulated iv effect that the incum
bent should treat the returns as
fraudulent asfr. as they affected
the local governments ef said
■states by withdrawing tho United
Statea troope,the presence of whioh
alone, it was knowu, gave them
auy force; that it thus appears
that the constitutional question so
gravely aud elaborately debated iv
Congress, before tho Electoral
Commission and in tbe public press
as the question on which the Pres
idential question hinged and wilh
which the public mind was so leng
exercised, bad no part whatever iv
determining the contest, but that
It was in faot determined by a par
ty of men elected by one party but
openly acting with their oppo
nents in the interest of certain rail
road corporations; that rt tbe
moment that every interest of the
country is greatly prejudiced and
iis most vital interests are put in
jeopardy by suffering the people to
be superceded as the political
power aud substituting for them
such monied organizations as will
pay for defrauding them; that, in
the opinion of your memorialists,
the continued prostration of the
business of the country is largely
due to tne fact lhat the confidence
of the people iv the conduct of
their public officers i- shaken; that
an irresponsible executive admin
istration has been installed which
has not the support of the country
or either of its great political par
ties; that Ibis conflicts with tbe
whole theory of our institutions
and of those of the mother country
whence they were derived; thut to
carry ou as to get possession of the
Government, the incumbent must
seek support from those elected as
bis oupoueuta; tbat this relation is
in itself corrupting is shown by
reason as well as by experience;
tiiat no useful public service can
be rendered by an administration
whose title to power rests on
fraudulent elecliou returns, manu
factured by its own partizaus and
made effectual by an agreement
with the subsidy and jobbing men
of tlie opposing parly; that the
Indispensable first steps to any re
form in the pubiic sorvice is to re
store the Guverumeut to the peo
ple; that it is only by the men who
have been elected by the people
ami who aro free from all entan
gling alliances with tlie jobbing
interests from which all tlie great
abuses have sprung, that any re
form can be effected. Your me
morialists, theretoro, pray that
needful legislation may be adopted
to ascertain judicially who was
elected President at the recent
electiou, and to give effect to tlie
will of the people, aud we will ever
pray, etc.

be will call attention to the pres
ent and prospeotiva evils of unlim
ited Chinese Immigration to this
country and will recommend Con
gress to take such action as in its
wisdom may be most proper and
effective to restrict and regulate
the immigratiou of Mongolians.
Tlie President has not yet decided
whether ho will suggest any par
ticular manner for tlie attainment
of those objects, but that at preseut
it seems probable that iie will con
fine himself to a forcible presenta
tion of the necessity for action and
leave for the two Houses of Con

he will direct tlie Secretary

London, Jan. Bth.— Tho Murk
La.ie Express says that sustained
by political apprehensions aud
strengthened by the increased con
suiuptive demand, tlie present po
sition of the wheat trade is strong
and in spite of strong and large ar
rivals of foreign wheat, prices bave
been steadily maintained. Specu
lation is wanting hut a healthy
stimulus has been found lv supply
ing the legiti mate requirements of
millers, who have purchased with
out much reserve at rather higher
prices. Maize remains about tne
same, firm on the spot, owing to
limited supplies and rutlinr easier

numerous arrivals of cargoes at
ports of call. The market has
raised a little for Spring corn, liut
a slight improvement bath in value
and demand is noted for oats.
The crop returns for the year
1877 show, except hay, that all
crops have been much below tbe
average. The whoat crop has been
tbe most deficient of all, six out of
409 returns representing it as over
the average and no less than :JO9
describing it aa below. According
to the tables it was even a worse
crop than that of 1870, which was
the most dlftleieut crop previously
had during fifteen years. Barley,
too, was the smallest grown within
