Herald Steam Printing House.
Tbe HeraM Steam Printing House Is
. not surpasie.l by auy Job Printing office
oo tbe Pacific Coast, outside of San Fran
olsoo, lv facilities for doing job work.
Low prloes, good work and expedition
■any be railed upon at this office.
. .Twenty years ago tbe paptrs of
tbe United States, especially those
published in manufacturing cen
ters, were filled with appeals to
patronize home manufactures and
to no longer send money abroad for
■taples which we could just as well
make ourselves. It is a curious
fact tbat the English papers are
now full of precisely the same kind
of appeals. American manufac
tures have made such rapid ad
vances, owing to the superior and
every day improving methods of
American mechanics, that we are
now underselling the English in
many lines of manufactured goods,
not only at home and In the world
at large, but in England, even. The
accumulation and cheapening of
capital, and our marvelous skill,
notwithstanding the disparity of
wages against us, aa compared with
England, have enabled us to do
tbts. The result ia tbat gold is
flowing Into tbe United States at
an unheard of rate, and only the
grossest mismanagement of the
national government can prevent
tbe next teu years from being sig
nalized by the most unexampled
prosperity, on the assumption that
we are at tbe bedrock of the paraly
sis flowing from the panic. Protec
tion to American industry, and tbe
clumsy machinery of the present
tariff are, with the recent develop
ments, absolutely obsolete. They
really check our progress. Wo
-shall probably blunder on to cor
rrect ideas on this subject shortly,
/and prosperity, without any of the
unhealthy stimulus of tbe war, will
result,in * measure Dever before ex
. perienced. The Pacific Coast will
of it (o a gratifying ex-
Bunt. Manufactures are but in
fjtbejr Infancy here, and they are
Isdeatlued to great expansion. The
aame may be said of our mineral
.. and agricultural resources. Such
back-sets as have exercised tbe
East for over four years, and whose
effects have been; appreciated in
California during the vast two
years, are not without their uses.
They are certain to occur periodi
cally, and they arc merely tbo re
sult of filling to repletion the arte
ries of commerce with a blood
which is tbe life of trade.but whose
superabundance sometimes threat
en syncope. Great panics gen
erally recur, in the United Statss,
at intervals of twenty years. Ow
ing to the war, which disturbd tho
"periodicity" of these cataclysms,
tbe Interval between the panic of
1857 and 1573 was only sixteen
years. We have taken the present
lesson so deeply to heart, however,
tbat we are inclined to think that,
hereafter, we may look for an ex
tension, instead of curtailment of
these periods. One such pan It as
we are just emerging f-jui will do
for forty yeais, at least.
A prominent merchant of Los
Angelos who has unusual facilities
for forming au accurate judgment,
places the crop of grain iv Los An
geles county at two million sacks
"for tho coming season. Our in
formant is not given to exaggera
tion, and our own judgment con
firms his estimate. ihe urea
sown to the different cereals in this
coupty is simply unprecedented.
' ffo couuty in California will make
nsgoodoras vailed an exhibit as
Los Augeles county this year. Al
ready Ihe croaker who accnuipau
les a good season is beginning to
replace the croaker of the drouth,
lie Is now engaged in calculating
the Immense amount of money
which will be wasted in payiug for
tbe sacks which will be needed to
market this grain. This mood of
our people is a verification of the
aphorism of Pope that "man never
is, but is always to be, bleat."
Give your croaker everything hi
asks for, antl he would still growl.
I j Evek since we heard tho brute
(Kearney indulge, in front of Hie
'Court House iv L'is Augeles, in
low-flung insinuations against the
ladies of Sau Francisco, wo have
wondered that American working,
men could listen to him for a
minute. If this fellow, who pal
eies capital and throws the well
meaning workingman out nf em
ployment, shall cause one drop of
American blood to bo spilt, the
exact center of hit forehead is
where some well Intended bullet
' should lodge. Kearney ha? al
ready lost to the workingmeu of
California at least $1,000,000,

Ocr readers have probably had
occasion to notice the violence with
which the report of the State Board
of Transportation was "jumped" by
Journals which regard themselves
as ths champions of ths people, par
excellence, against the Railways.
The probability is extreme that
uot oue of these editorial gontle
meu bas read the report, and tbsy
denounce It simply because it was
far easier to do tbat than to read
aud weigh this voluminous " pub.
doc." which, we confess, boa
"fazed" us, it is so huge. And now
oomes along tbe Sacramento Rec
ord- Union, of January 17th, which
is a pronounced and recognized pro
railway organ, and which, under
tbe caption of the ■' Kearuey Ele
ment In Legislation," acquits
itself, amongst other things, of tbe
At this moment we should be
troubled to flud a more emphatic
and uum.stakabie exhibition ofthe
Kearney element in legislation
than is furnished iv the series of
bills drafted by the Transportation
Commissioners, and introduced to
the Senate on Tuesday. Iv and
through these bills the Transporta
tion Commissioners coolly ssk Ihe
Legislature to deliver over the rail
road companies of Califoruia to
their tender ineroies, bound hand
and foot. They propose, In sober
fact, and without exaggeration,that
the practical ownership aud control
of all tbe railroad property in tbe
State shall be vested iv tbem, and
tbat tbe present owners and man
agers of tbe property shall be strip
ped of all authority butsuoh as may
St delegated to them by tbe Board.
After bavlug in their elaborate and
lengthy report given a score of
valid objections to any restrictive
legislation whatever; and after ad
mitting that they were not lv pos
session of tbe necessary informa
tion to enable tbem to suggest ap
propriate legislation, these Com
missionsra have prepared a series
of bills designed to cover alike tbe
facts they know and those they
confess their ignorance of, aud
whicb, if they should go iuto ope
ration, would completely paralyze
tbe eutire railroad interest. We
have bare a strikiug manifestation
ofthe Kearney element in legisla
tion. It is notorious that there is
do complaint in auy part of the
State of the preseut railroad man
agement. It is notorious tbat the
Transportation Commission cast a
drag-nst circular over the State, In
tbs attempt to elicit complaints
against the corporations, aud that
there was absolutely no response
to their suggestive invitation.
Nevertheless, without rhyme or
reason, they bavo proceeded to
frame a series of bills, th* effect if
not tbe aim of which is to cripple
the railroad interest, aud they in
troduce these measures with a
placid and self-satisfied air, as of
men who have done their whol*
duty by tbe people, and conse
quently have a right to feel proud
The truth Is that it is probably
owing to the fact that Gen. Stone
man, the President of the Board, is
a resident of Los Angeles county,
and Col. Smith is a brother of Sen
ator George H. Smith, that the ac
tion of the Board is so thorough
and sweeping. But the gentlemen
who drew up these bills may quite
reasonably complain that it Is hard
to be thrown thus, as though shut
tle-cock and battle-dore were the
game, between tbe friends au.l ene
mies of the Railway company. .
The question of supplying the
city with fas is now ponding lv tbe
Council. Gas is a subject which ad
mits of a great deal of disquisition.
Tbe reductions in tbe price of gas
in some of our leading cities, dur
ing the past live years, have been
something to wonder at. The con
tract with the Los Angeles Gas
Company, if it should be reuewed,
would run for three years. That is
a long time. The terms of some of
our Couneilmen will expire iv ten
months; and, before they makes
contract running for three years,
over two years beyond their terms,
they should ponder the matter
very carefully. We understand
that the representative of the Los
Angeles Gas Company mado a
proposition to a leading Council
man to supply the city at $1
less per thnusaud feet than to
private consumers, te> supply the
engine aud other city public build
ings free of charge and to furnish
all lamp-poste himself, also free of
charge to tbe cily. We counsel our
city fathers to be guarded aud wise
In their day and generation, and to
cousider maturely every phase of
that absorbing questiou—gas. It
is a voluminous subject, and it ad
mits of a detailed consideration
which we shall probably give it at
an early day.
We have received, too late for
analysis, tho "Supplemental report
of the Commissioners of Transpor
tation to the Legislature of the
Stato of California." It coutains
the four bills which have been
lately introduced to the Legisla
ture, and which are commented ou
elsewhere by the Sacramento
Record-Union. We shall make
Ihem tbe subject of careful study
and of our editorials to-morrow.
