A Familiar Chas with our people.
Th* people of Lei Angelea are
now emerging from the most pro
longed, exaiperating an J far reach
ing trial to which we have ever
■eon any place subjected. A mere
reference to the suspension of the
Temple and Workman Bank,
which followed the auipenalon of
tha Bank of California, two years
ago, to the small-pox epidemio of
last year, and to tbe drouth whleh
fallowed that, will convey to tbe
observant the full significance of
the calamities of which we
to make but a glancing mention.
Wa have stood these aggravated
and prolonged trials infinitely bet
ter than we expected. In tbe or
deal we have exhibited an elastici
ty and resources whleh, if we bad
reflected fully upon the matter, we
ahould have expected, but which,
we confess, wa did not look for.
However painful the experiences
•f thla period, embracing fully two
years, we are now through with
them. We have come forth from
the fiery furnace as triumphantly
aa the famous three whose story is
told in tho Biblical narrative. We
stand now on the threshold of a
year of unexampled plenty. There
are oertain lesions which we feel
like reading to our people as they
start on tbe new era of prosperity
whloh will be accelerated with
each month of the current year.
Ftrat, we would like to cay a
word to land-owners: You have
passed a whole year iv which the
demand for property has been sim
ply nothing as compared with the
three preceding years. Take a lea
•on from the experiences of that
woful time. Mark your prloes
down to tbe very lowest notch, in
reason. Let your chief aim be to
•ncourage the settlement of ener
sretio and progressive people.
Los Angelea county cau easily
furnish homes for a population of
two hundred thousand souls. You
•hould aim to attract those people
bare, and one of the best induce
ments to their earning will be the
conviction that they will be lot iv
on "bed-rock" prices for laud. They
naturally desire to partake of the
enhancement which will follow Id
tbe wake of the increased popula
tion which is certain to come here,
and of whioh they themselves will
be a part. It may b» set down as
the frozen truth that not oue foot
of ground is now cultivated ln Los
Angeles county for tea which will
be under crop, in ten years from
now, if we pursue a judicious pol
To the City Council we have also
some suggestions: We beg to re
mind them that the California Leg
islature, under the existing law,
meets but once in two years. They
should make immediate arrange
ments, before the adjournment of
the present Legislature, to fund the
oitydebt. Fortunately this debt,
considering all [the circumstances,
Il not large. But it is iv a shape
just vow whicli makes it oppressive
to the tax payers. It should be
funded. All tbe arrangements to
wards this end should be perfected
before the preseut Legislature ad
journs, or we sball have to wait for
another two years, unless the Con
stitutional Convention should
sensibly provide for yearly sessions
ofthe Legislature. Much of our
debt matures In lumpsums, whloh
to be provided for in tbe
•yearly tax imposts. Tho payment
of these sums as they mature, no
sinking fund having been provided
for tbe purpose, gives our city the
appearaase of having a large yearly
tax rate. Instant measures should
be taken to get rid of this inconven
ient feature of our municipal nuan
ces. The state of things we have
described discredits us abroad; and
it works, besides, as an actual op-
Brnssion to tbe tax payer who lives
Within the city limits.
This is essentially an age and
country of shams. There is a cer
tain consistency in this when, from
the White House down, shams are
the order of tbe day. William E.
Chandler, the man who supervised
tbe job of "bull-dozing" the electo
ral vote of Florida for Hayes, said,
in his recent manifesto to the vot
ers of New Hampshire: "In Lou
"lslana there had beeu thrown In
"to tbe ballot boxes over 7,000
"more votes for Tilden tban for the
"Hayes electors, and to make
"Hayes President it became neces
sary for the Returning Board to
"throw out more than 7,000 Tilden
"votes on acoount of alleged mur
"der, riot and intimidation." Some
slay or other tke smug li7pocrisy
nnd arrogance ef tbe Republican
leaders will strike in on the people
•fthe United State* and they will
•waken,with a start,to a realization
of tbe political nightmare under
•whicli they have been laboring for
the past thiiteen or fourteen years,
•nd, conspicuously, for tbe past
fifteen months. Tbe same Return
ing Board of Louisiana wbiob
threw out a popular majority fer
Tilden of 7,000 would have thrown
•atone of 70,000 under the same
sjlroumstence*. The only limit of
tbis throwing out was that of ne
cessity. If throwing out three hun
dred votes only would have elected
Hayes, .the- Republican conspira
tors would have gladly limited
their prestidigitation to tbat num
ber. There would have been less
lndecsnoy in it. So when it cams
to the Bto 7 Commission. There
were a certain number of disputed
votes. To justify the declaration
tbat Hayes bad been elected Presi
dent it was necessary to count
every one of these nineteen dis
puted votes for Hayes, and then he
was only elected by one majority.
A single one of the nineteen would
have elected Mr. Tilden. It was
therefore necessary for the eight to
grab every one of them, and they
proceeded to do It in tbe most cold
blooded manner conceivable. Had
there been thirty-nine disputed
electoral votes the Eight would
have given Tilden twenty of them,
for appearance sake. The necessity
was urgent, and the shameless
thing was done, with a hardy dis
regard of justice. The new role in
Which Chandler figures is merely
a verification of the old adage that,
"when rogues fall out, honest men
come by their own." Tbe United
States will never be a politically
olean nation until Hayes, like a sec
ond Jonah, has been spewed forth.
Whether or not he is evsr removed
from bis til-gotten office, he stands
to-day repudiated by the American
Ws are glad to learn, from an
iaterview with the new, Working
man's Senator from Alameda
county, Mr. Banes, which we saw
in the San Francisco Post, that
that gentleman takes no steck in
Kearney or in incendiary utter
ances. Iv fact, tbe most infallible
recipe fer killing the Working
men's movement as a political or
ganization would be to send out
Kearney as its accredited repre
sentative. The well-poised, intelli
gent workingman, who bas a de
termined and matured purpose to
make his influence felt in Ameri
can politics, is painfully handi
capped by such intemperate and
violent men as Kearney. The re
porter told Mr. Bones that he was
credited with having expressed the
opiniou that no single man should
be allowed to accumulate over half
a million dollars. Mr. Bones ad
mitted tbat he had expressed opin
ions to that effect, but that he
doubted if his aspiration would be
realized in his life-time, If ever.
The new Senator is evidently a
sensible, moderate mau, and a rep
resentative of the laboring classes
of whom they may justly be proud.
He announced tbat his earliest
legislative efforts would be direct
ed towards the repeal of the Incen
diary Act. In this we wish him
God speed. It was a panicky and
ill-considered law, which should
not loug be permitted to disgrace
Three or four years ago the
Eastern mau who proposed to come
to California had to face certain
manifest pecuniary disadvantages.
Greenbacks were theu at a large
discount—we cannot recall the ex
act figure, but it was probably at
least teu or twelve per cent. No
such obstacle interposes now. In
fact, by making his expenses
moderate, and settling his bills
daily, in silver, the penurious
visitor could make a pre
mium on his greenbaoks. Even
in large transactions depending on
the sale ef lands tbe terms would
probably not be modified if pay
ment were stipulated to be in
greenbacks. This is a radical
change, and it shouid operate
largely in favor of tbe Pacific
Coast. Three or four years ago
the Intending settler who started
for California with one hundred
thousand dollars had to face the
proapeot of seeing his capital re
duced to ninety thousand dollars
or less—a disagreeable experience
which deterred many from coming.
The drouth of last year bas so far
prevented our reaping tbe advan
tages arising from this changed
financial status; but, with tho res
toration of bountiful crops and
with prosperity throughout ths
length and breadth of California,
we sball shortly begiu to ohronicle
the full volume ef the old tide of
travel towards the Pacifio Coast.

San Fbancisco, Jan. 25th.—The
ship Western Shore, for Seattle,
the bark King Phillip, for Port
Gamble, and the Bolivian bark
Don Nioolai, for Victoria, were
towed to sta this morning. The
tugs left them inside the bar which
was breaking heavily. The wind
was too light to enable the ships
to work across against the heavy
rollers. Three of the ver bis were
carried about a mile scuth of the
Heads where the breakers are con
tinuous from bsach to bar. All
anchored in the breakers. Tbis
evening the King Philip parted
her cables and went ashore. The
others are still holding on, but lia

on tbe vessel on the western shore,
where she still holds ou. Several
tugs have attempted to rescue her
from her perilous position without
success. Captain Blinn, her com
mander, was killed by the parting
of the hawser, which struck him
on the rebound. The bark Don
Nioalas, which lay in a more fa
vorable position, has beeu towed

went into Committee of the Whole
on the bill extending tbe time for
the withdrawal of distilled spirits

on tbe calendar were set aside
for tbe purpose. Tucker explained
the bill and said it was a question
whether the House should ruin or
save from ruin the distillers who
were interested in the reduction of
the tax on whiskey—they were the
geese which lay tbe golden eggs for
the Government. He argued that
the bill was a geod one and eugbt

The Pall Mall Gazette, iv its

considers the allegbd terms of
peace about as hard as they could
well bt, and as amounting to the
virtual destruction of tbe Turkish
Empire and the reduction of tbe
Sultan to the condition of a Rus
sian vassal. If, after the publica
tion of these terms, the resigna
tions of Lord Derby and Carnar
von are withdrawn, we may con
clude that no effective resistance
will be made by England to what
ever agreement tbe Czar and Sul
tan may come to.
Earl «trunrvou'i Explanation.
London, January 25th.—Iu the
House of Lords tbis afternoon,
Lord Beacousfield, answering the
Earl of Sandwich, said it was a
fact that instructions bad been
given to the fleet to prooeed to the
Dardanelles and Constautinople.
At the same time the Government
was prepared to telegraph to the
European Powers, including Rus
sia and the Forte, that, in tbe
course the Government had fol
lowed, there wis not the slightest
deviation from the policy of neu
trality they had first announced.
He maintained tbat the British
fleet went to the Dardanelles to de
fend British subjects and British
property and to take care of British
iuterests iv the straits. Since the
Government had arrived at tbat
resolution it had become acquaint
ed with the proposed conditions of
peace, and having examined those
conditions, tbe Government, bad
given directions to the Admiral to
remain in Besika Bay. They had
not, under tliese circumstances,
circulated throughout Europe the
telegraphic dispatch to which he
The Earl of Carnarvon rose to
make a personal explanation. He
said that, in order to justify his
conduct, he wished to state the
reasons which led him to resign
tbe Colonial Secretaryship. That
step he bad taken, and the Queen
was graciously pleased to accept it.
He would not Impute blame to
auy of bis colleagues, but ciroum-
Btanoes had arlseu whleh rendered
it incumbent on him to take this
oourse. He had dissented from tbe
resolution for sending a fleet
to the Dardanelles and also
to the supplementary vote
which the Chancellor of tbe
Exchequer had proposed to take on
Monday. He considered that such
a vete ought not have been mooted
until tbe terms of peace arrived
and became known. On January
2d be had occasion to address a
deputation. It would be remem
bered tbat he bad made a speech in
which he expressed his views re
garding the state of affairs in the
East. On tbe following day in Cab
inet tbe Prime Minister condemned
severely tbe language lie bad
used. He (Lord Carnarvon) took
tims to consider the course be
should take under the circumstan
ces and aa there waa no public dis
avowal of the language which had
been used, he felt justified in ten
dering his resignation. He main
