A Distinctive Los Angeles Policy
As we have an entire belief in
the future of Los Angeles, as we
think this place has sustained the
last of its serious drawbacks, we
note with an absorbed interest the
opportunities which lie before us.
We have already commented upon
the offer of Mr. Huntington to
•lace tho Southern Pacific Rail
way, for its whole length, under
the supervision of Congress. The
sum total of his demand is the mere
right to build the Southern Pacific
towards the Rio Grande, to a point
_ of junction with Scott; and, for this
privilege he is willing to volunta
rily ooncede tbe priceless boon of a
Congressional regulation of a road
which is so pregnant with develop
ment to Los Angeles. Mr. Hunt
ington does not come before Con
gress with a petition for a moneyed
alms. He is willing to take Scott's
•nterprise where Scott helplessly
dropped it years ago, and he an
nounces his ability to go on and
give the country a transcontinental
railway, independent of the Cen
tral Pacific, subjeot to the caprice
of the National Legislature—only
asking for a share of what Scott
has had since 1571, and what he has
ahown himself unable to use. The
span of road which Scott has built,
since be made his vauut before the
people of San Diego, now nearly
■Iz years ago, is a mere bagatelle.
Four years ago we were informed
that the Texas Pacific Railway had
been ironed as far as Fort Worth,
and to-day that road is not ad
vanced a foot west of Fort Worth.
Col. Thomas A. Scott, pseudo Rail
way King, omnipotent constructor
otrailwayson paper, has realized
tbe cbaraoterof the "sturdy beg
gar" with which the phraseology
ofthe parish laws of England is so
conversant. He has begged lv sea
son and out. He has begged,
and begged, and begged, until
his story has become a
wearisome monotone, compared to
which Hamlet's harping 011 old
Poloniua's daughter was a variable
and lively refrain.
We again say, what we have
said all along, that if Tom Scott
did succeed in getting his San
■ Diego road guarantee through Con
gress, San Diego, and not Los An
geles, would profit by tbe measure.
We should And, as a result of it all,
that onr pretty, rival city would be
built up at our expense. A perfect
maelstrom of real estate specula
tion would spring up iv San Diego,
which would carry strangers and
a large element of our own city
people, down there. For three or
feur years Los Angeles would be
entirely overshadowed, though
then, we admit, our turn would
come. It would come because
bread and fertile valleys may be
ignored for a time, but their per
ennial value is certain to assert
Itself in time.
We will be told that Huntington
only makes this proposition iv or
der to defeat Tom Scott. We
unfelgnedly believe that Tom
Soott was already defeated before
Congress met. He is in the posi
tion of the Irish servant in the
farce, who was discharged before
he was hired. Tbe country is dove
with subsidies under any pretence
whatever. When Oakes Ames
read bis diary, which resulted in
the retirement from public lifeof
suoh men as Schuyler Colfax and
a hundred others of that ilk, that
chapter was closed, If not fore'er,
at least until all memory of those
disgraceful disclosures has been
effaced from the public mind.
The interests of Los Angeles
really call for tho closing with Mr.
Huntington's proposition, liappy
for us if Congress can be induced
to take these Central Pacific peo
ple at their word,especially in view
of tbe public sentiment which is
rapidly gathering for a national
regulation of railways. Mr. Hunt
ington has wittingly or unwit
tingly himself put in the enteriog
wedge for the new era.
What more assured and gloiious
guarantee of the future greatness
of Los Angeles could there be than
the starting of a great transconti
nental railway from tbe Missis-
aippi river, ramifying to all the
great Eastern cities, which should
find two ocean termini near Los
Angeles, one at Wilmington and
the other at Santa Monica?
If either of these points
should be selected, our city would
have a capital guarantee of com
mercial importance. Lieut. Com
mander Taylor, of the Hassler, lias
lately written his opinion of the
perfect feasibility, through the con
struction of a breakwater at Santa
Monica, of making that point a
splendid harbor. With Hunting
ton as the builder of this tiauscon
tluental railway, with a branch
from Santa Ana to Sau Diego, even
the latter harbor would be tributa
ry to Los Angeles, Instead of, under
the Scott guarentee, Los Angeles
being tributary to Sau Diego. An
unsurpassed farming and pomolog
ies,! country would surrouud a Los
Angeles terminus of a transconti
nental railway below the snow belt.
Building such a railway through it
would guarantee us instant, solid
and continuous development. We
should have, descending through
the San Gorgonio Pass, a railway
which would he prevented from op
pressing our people, or acting un
der any but strictly commercial im
pulses, by the Congress of the
United States itself. That would
not be the Scott guarantee, but it
ought to be a guarauteo very pleas
ant to our people.
The frozen truth is that the peo
ple of Los Angeles have been "bull
dozed" into throwing the wholo
weight of their Influence in favor of
projects calculated to build up, not
this city aud couuty, but a rival.
Anything Sau Diego can get she
deserves. She has been long suf
fering and plucky. But our own
people should uot exhibit a stolid
indifference when the most bril
liant opening ever offered to any
city is plainly within their grasp.
With nil our heart we hope that
Congress will take Mr. Huntington
at bis word. If it does, Los Ange
les city and eonnty would double
their population inside of five
years.
No one iv California has doubted
that Mr. C. I. Huntington and
those associated with him have
made tbe most of tbeir opportuni
ties. No one here will accuse them
of auy velvetty, sentimental soft
ness. Whatever energy they may
have shown in railway building
has been accompanied by a quid
pro quo of a selfish kind. They are
generally credited with having
gone for all lv sight. They have
never neglected to take the full
measure of the goods the Gods have
sent in their way. Consequently,
when Mr. Huntington lets down
the bars aud invites Congress to a
supervision of the Southorn Pacific
Railway — especially when no
moneyed grant or guarantee, is in
volved—sensible people would like
to see Congress at once embrace
the chance of making itself the
tutelary genius of those whose ne
cessities, on botli sides ofthe conti
nent, compel them to look to an
equitably managed transconti
nental railway for their comfort
and prosperity. We would rely far
more surely on such a Hue of pol
icy, with the sanction aud super
vision of the National Legislature,
than on anything Col. Tom
Soott could or would give us. He
cau't do anything to help us if he
would, aud we doubt very much
whether he would do it If he could.
We are assured that, although
tbe mills of the Gods grind slowly,
they grind exceeding small. Au
derson, one of tho Returning Board
rogues who threw out upwards of
7000 votes, which had been cast
Into the ballot boxes in Louisiana
for Mr. Tllden, bus been fouud
guilty of the felony attached to the
paltering with the Vernon parish
returns. Some Republicans in the
East are horrified that forgery at
tended with a desecration of the
sacred prescriptions adhering to
the ballot, should meet the repri
mand of a jury. We are not of the
number. Tho turn of rogue Wells
will come next. Who, in view of
the developments of the past year,
and of the Republican loathing
which now greets tbe fraudulent
President, shall dare say that the
turn of even Hayes shall not come
in ita due order? Iv all codes and
all ages, the receiver Is as bad as
the thief. The Presidential Peck
sniff must experience au occasional
quaking at the knees as he marks
the progress of events. They are
of evil omen to him.
Onk of the most influential Sen
ators of the United States has writ
ten to a friend hereabouts lately
that he is willing to throw the
whole weight of his efforts towards
making Santa Monica a desirable
harbor by the construction of a
breakwater. If our people were to
quit "mooning" about projects de
signed to save Tom Scott from
bankruptcy, aud to build up Phil
adelphia and San Diego, they could
give a powerful impetus to iegisla.
tion which would really help along
their own town and couuty.
Our own opinion is that at the
same time that the Legislature of
California passes an acceptable
fares and freights bill it should pass
a joint resolution requesting Con
gress to take Huntiugton at his
own proposition, that of building a
transcontinental railway which
shall be absolutely subject to Con
gressional supervision. There
would be genuine progress in that.
The Legislature of the State of
California should never for one
moment forget the obligation they
lie under to give the people of this
State an equitable fares and
freights bill. Whatever else is
neglected, that should be sacredly
attended to.

Sacramento, Feb. B.—The Sen
ate took up tba special order, the
concurrent resolution introduced
by Curtis in favor of the remonetl
zation of silver, and Satterwhlte's
resolution favoring the repeal of
the resumption act and tha issue
of paper money.
Piersou offered as a substitute for
both resolutions: That the State
was opposed to tbe repeal of tbe
Resumption act and to the remou
etizatiou of silver, except upon the
basis of tho silver dollar of weight
and fineness equal iv value to the
dollar of gold, and that its stand
ard be maintained from time to
time by legislative enactments and
only to be a legal tender for fifty
dollars. Adopted by 18 ayes to It)
nays.
The substitute was then subdi
vided, on motion of Evans, and
thus voted on:
First—That the State is opposed
to tho repeal of the Resumption
act. Ayes 23, noes 6.
McCoppin moved that the second
sub-division of the substitute be
made to read: That the State is iv
favor of tho remonelization of
silver. Adopted. Ayes IS, noes 11.
McCoppiu then moved to strike
out the balance of the resolution
after the word "silvor," making it
read simply that the Stat* was op
posed to the repeal of the Resump
tion act and in favor of the remoti
etization of silver. Lost. Ayes it.
nays 15.
Piersou then moved to amend by
striking out the provision for legis
lative enactments to regulate
fluctuations of the standard.
Adopted, by viva voce vote.
McCoppin then moved to refer
the resolution lo tbe Committee
ou Finance, to be lixed up in
proper shape for further considera
tion. Carried. Ayes IS, nays 7.

Omaha, Neb., Feb. Bth.—Major
J. M. Walsh, Superintendent aud
Inspector nf tbe Nortbwesteru Ca
nadian Mounted Police, passed
through Omaha this afternoon, en
route to Canada to attend the
opening of tbo Dominion Parlia
ment. Ho has come as direct as
possible from Fort Walsh, his
headquarters, on Milk river, in the
British possessions, where be has
three hundred mouuted police un
der him. He says that Sitting
Bull is corralled iv camp and has
not been on American soil. United
States troops have been misled by
trappers who did not kuow what
they were talking about. Sitting
Bull is lame and is not in fighting
condition. His fighting ohiefa are
Long Knife and Little Mountain,
while be is simply counsellor. He
would not have been permitted to
cross into this country. If he had
done so lie would have been
brought back, so Major Walsh
states. Major Walsh was met at
tbe depot by General Williams,
Adjutant-General of the Depart
ment of tbe Platte, and had a long
interview concerning Sitting Bull
and the comiug Spring campaign.
Political Love- react.
Washington, Feb. Bth.— The
Post, the Washington Democratic
organ, to-day publishes tbe follow
ing: While the last and decisive
vote was being taken in the Wig
glnton-Pacheco contest yesterday,
Mr. Wlggiutou walked over to
Pacheco's seat, extended his hand
aud said, "Governor, we have ni
ways been friends personally,
though enemies politically. I hope
that tbe result of tbis vote will not
disturb our friendly relations."
With a magnanimity worthy of
the gentleman that he is, Governor
Pacheco extended his hand and
said: "Circumstances have made
me your political enemy, but per
sonally I hope to be your friend iv
the future as I have been in the
past."
Tbe Pout adds: "This is the pret
tiest political love feast ou record."
It also |says, by way of editorial
comment: "Of course everybody
know 9 that the discussion was
merely a matter of form, and all
the wind from the bellows of
statesmen was intended alono for
the fevered brows of their far-away
constituents. It was, in truth, au
nt her case of eight to seven. There
was a doubt, and the party in
power resolved that doubt in its
own favor, as all parties have done
from the beginning of the world
and will continuo to do until the
end of time.

Washington, Feb. B.—About a
year ago charges supported by tbe
signatures of a large number of
citizens of Arizona were filed at the
Department of Justice against
Associate Justice Tweed, then aud
now a member of the Arizona Su
preme Court, but formerly a mem
ber of the California State Senate
from Nevada county. He was
charged witli being intemperate,
immoral and under the control of
a ring who used bis power for cor
rupt purposes. Counter represen
tations iv behalf of Judge Tweed
were, however, received here of
sufficient force to secure a decision
from the Attorney Oeueral that
tbe further consideration of the
grounds of opposition to Tweed
might properly be deferred until
near tha expiration of bis judicial
term. Lately a number of recom
mendations for Tweed's reappoint
ment have been tiled and among
them one bearing tbe signatures of
a large number of Arizona law
yers. One of these lawyers, who is
certified by prominent Californians
as a man of good character, now
Informs the Department that his
name was forged to this recom- 1
mendation aud that many others
signed it under the compulsion of
fear of injury to tho interests of
their clients, as it was presented to
them for signaturejust at the com
mencement of a term of Court.
Senator Bootli has recommended
Tweed's reappointment,hut Senator
Sargent and Representatives Davis

not reappoiuted,he also will recom

London, Feb. Bth.—o P. M. —In
tbe House of Commons this after

of the armistice. He said: They
disclose such a state of affairs that
the government, in view of a possi
ble disturbance iv Constantinople,
has ordered a portion of the fleet
thither; not as a departure from
neutrality, but as a protection to
life and property. The government
has notified this step to the other
powers, asking whether they will
join iv the movement. It has also
notified Russia.
London, Feb. Sth —7 i\ M. —In
the House of Lords, Lord Derby,
Foreign Secretary, made a state
ment similar to that of Sir Stafford
Northcote in the House of Com

his resignation when tho fleet was
first sent to Constantinople, but
says he approves the present ac
tion, in consequence of the altered
aspect of affairs.
In the House of Commons, Sir
Stafford Northcoto's announcements

cluded that the German Govern

is not a little strengthened by tbe
