Herald Steam Printing House.
The Herald Steam Printing House is
not surpassed by any Job Printing ofllee
on the Pacilic Coast, outside of San Fran
cisco, In facilities for doing Job work
Low prices, good work and expedition
our be relied upon at this ofllee.
The great soul of tbe "boss" ed
itor) wbo has recently been made
President of tbe Agricultural So
ciety of California, still cherishes
resentment against the fraudulent
President. Boruck, like Chandler,
Is anxious to see the whole Presi
dential question opened up. He
evidently thinks that a full inquiry
would result in consigning Hayes
to a sort of political "deranltion
bow-wows," and he is ready and
eager to force the fight. He mildly
puts it, in the last issue of his in
valuable Spirit of the Times, that
Hayes bas net shown that honor
thieves which tlio Radical
\ ••solrators had a right to expect
VSnhim. Why is it that the ed
itors of sporting papers are all
great politicians? Wilkes, of tbe
New York Spirit of the Times, all
through tbe late unpleasantness,
was tbe guide, philosopher and
friend of President Lincoln. That
great statesman and patriot was
worthy of Wilkes's advocacy,
while Hayes is not deserving of
Boruck's; and, therefore, he fails to
receive it. The precise connection
which exists between the turf and
the Cabinet is a recondite one, but
that it exists cannot be doubted.
Mr. Lincoln received tho counte
nance and support of the New
York sporting journal, and his ad
ministration was successful and
glorious. Mr. Hayes.is treated to
the energetic opposition of the
Ban Francisco sporting journal,
and bis administration will be an
. (nglorious failure. We have no
doubt but that this second proposi
tion will be as fully verified as the
first, though how either President
would have come out had the atti
tude of the sporting papers been
different, is one of those Dundreary
conundrums that "a fellaw cawn't
find out, you know."
It Is a somewhat curious fact
that, notwithstanding the disposi
tion of a portion of our farmers to
grumble at the non-money making
character of their pursuit in Los
Angeles couuty, corn has never
been cheap enough hereto justify
the establishment of a grain dis
tillery. Notwithstanding the fact
that tbe rich lands about the Monte,
the Nietos, Gospel Swamp and
other famous corn regions, yield au
average of from eighty to one hun
dred and thirty bushels to the acre,
we yet can't start into a rivalry
with the Kentucky distillers be
cause they cau buy com for one
fourth the price commanded by our
farmers. The same principle applies
to rye, which grows luxuriantly
Lsreabouts. Plenty of our farmers
are boarding up their corn now he
cause they are dissatisfied with the
present price, which ranges from
$1 45 a hundred up. The North
western farmer would like to en
joy such prices just for a little
while. No grumbling would be
heard from him. As it is, he is ob
liged to content himself with one
third, one-fourth and, in .some
cases, one-fifth that figure.
Having read a somewhat fuller
report of the speech of Senator Al
len G. Thurman on silver remone
tization than that reported by tele
graph, we were struck by the con
clusiveness of its arguments. With
all our boasted cleverness no peo
ple but Americans would have been
■tupid enough to permit themselves
to be wheedled into discrediting
that one of the precious metals of
which they are themselves the
largest producers. The idea of tho
American Congress playing into
the hands of the bondholders and
of tho foreigner is not a flattering
one either lo its intelligence or
probity. The quickest and most
infallible way of wiping out the
disgrace is to remonelize silver
money, of tbe precise degree of
fineness which made it lawful coin
money of tbe United States before
the Garfield.legislation of 1578T4.
We are glad to kuow that tree
planting is proceeding overywhere
in this couuty with unheard of ac
tivity. The visitor to this section,
who arrives here ten years from
now, will be surprised to learn that
it was once a region comparatively
devoid of trees. Thepeoplo of Spain
bave a happy fashion, whenever.they
eat any fruit, of planting the seed
aloug the loadways. We cau'tset
out too many trees. Their cultiva
tion undoubtedly increases the rain
fall and their presence is never so
welcome or charming as iv a com
paratively arid country. There are
few more exquisite objects to the
eye iv tills world than one of our
Los Angeles orange groves. Let us
multiply them on all hands. The
■ale, by a single Los Augeles
nurseryman, on a single day, of one
hundred thousand trees, shows that
we are doing it wholesale.
Certai.ni.v, never since Los
Angeles was a county has there
bttn a more auspicious season than
the present. The rains have come
exactly at tbo right time, and they
have been of a very satisfactory
volume In every case they bave
just stopped short of tho point of
disaster. Thus, if the heavy rain
of day before yesterday had kept
up all through the night, destruc
tive floods would have been inevit
able. But It cleared up just In the
nick of time. Otherwise, the roar
ing Tejunga would bave shown its
might, busiuess would havo been
interrupted witli San Francisco
possibly for three or four days and
the lower section of the city would
have been drowned out. We
might havo had twice the volume
of the rains of this year without
doing half the good which has
beeu already accoii..dished.
While the sooalled Labor parly
may win one election in Califor
nia, we doubt very much lis abil
ity to do it. Should it succeed in
doing so it will be because of spec
ial aud local issues, chief amongst
which is the Chinese question. It
will do so, further, because the
farming population iv California is
small. Farmers are either Demo
crats or Republicans. Tbe Labor
party has never yetearried a .".ingle
State in the Union alth nigh, lo our
knowledge, the great Corypheus of
the Labor wing, Ueneral Sam
Carey, has been agitating for the
past thirteen or fourteen years. A
most i iiportaot element in the
national political programme is
the sixteen Southern States—" the
solid South "—which are all pre
eminently conservative communi
ties, orgauized on a basis which
takes them out of the pale of La
bor agitation. Another thing which
might be overlooked by the casual
observer is that, whilo the Dem
ocracy might suffer from a consid
erable defection of tlie workiug
men, it will be just the other way
in such States aa Pennsylvania,
Xew York and Ohio where the Re
publican party would be the loser.
For good or ill, the United States
will continue to be ruled by either
the Democratic or Republican
Never in the history of this
county has there bseu more feed
for sheep and cattle than now.
From a hundred different direc
tions Hocks aud herds are making
tbeir way back to Los Angeles.
All our pnstoral interests cannot
he!p being largely stimulated by
the present condition of things.
We never expect, nor do we wish,
again to see the pell-mell herding
of flocks ou a thousand bills,Whlob
this county In
the past. But there will be hand
some money in flocks and herds
now; and, before the uext drouth,
which will probably bo at the
usual remove of six or seven years,
we shall have adapted ourselves
perfectly to the requirements of
this section. Immense stores of
feed will have beeu accumulated
against that time.
One of tbe most successful farm
ers iv Los Angelescouuly informed
us, the other day, that, iv seven
years, he bad missed but one crop
— that of last year—and that lie had
not employed any irrigation what
ever to bring this result about. Ho
says the reason why co many com
plaints are heard from the farmers
is because most of them are obliged
to sell their crops as soon us gath
ered. A.l who are forehanded
enough to be able to hold their
grain till the markot Improves,
which it always does towards tbe
Fall aud Winter months, are well
paid. As to the chances of losing
a crop they ere really not auy
greater in this section thau the av
erage risk of the Eastern farmer,
while tho yield to tho acre in any
of the cereals is at least twice as
great as in the Fast.

Washington, Feb. ltitb.—The
Senate's decisive action on tiie sil
ver bill has beeu the universal
theme of conversation in Wash
ington all day and throughout this
evening. The vastly preponderat
ing sentiment is that of more or
less pronounced satisfaction. This
feeling has been strengthened by
news from New York that, in tho
face of the last action assuring thu
passage of the hill, gold lias fallen
and government bonds have risen
iv vain • ns compared with tho quo
tations of yesterday, IT ben the en
actment of the bill by the Senate
by a two-thirds vote was considered
extremely doubtful. There seems
to be practically no doubt
that the House will promptly con
cur in the Senate amendments and
it is considered probable th.it the
motion for concurrence may be
nmtle ami adnp'ed next Monday
under suspension of tha rules.
Some objections aro urged by cer
tain members against this course,
on the ground that it would pre
vent any diactlMlon or separate ac
tion on llio Senate amendments,
two of which are not wholly ac
ceptable to all the silver men in
the House; but these objections ate
not likely to prevail further than
possibly to procure an order for
discussion which would have to bo
accepted or rejected as an entirety.
No essential alteration of the tertus
of the bill M passeil by t tie Senate
is anticipated, even if it goes to a
conference coin 111 it tee. Probabilities
strongly favor its beiug laid before
tbe President early next week with
out any further change whatever.
Washington opinions are about
equally divided as to whether the
President will veto tlio bill oral
low it to become law without his
signature, although sonio of its
enthusiastic friends confidently
predict that he will acquiesce in
the action of two-thirds of both
houses by returning it with his
formal approval. In tho event of
a veto, however, there Is uo reason
for doubt that his veto will be over
ruled. The vote of the full Senate,
exclusivo of Sharon, will be 51
against 24 on the question of over
ruling the veto of this bill. The
correctness of this calculation is
evident by adding to the 4S votes
actually cast for the bill, the votes
of Harris and Patterson who were
paired aud llausoni who was sick,
but known to be enthusiastically
iv favor of the bill. By similarly
reckoning iv connection with the
21 negativo votes, the votes of Hill
and Butler, who wore paired with
Harris and Patterson, aud that of
Eaton, anti-silver Senator, who
was absent, the 24 negative votes
cannot possibly he increased. Their
distribution geographically as fol
fows: Twelve from New Eng
land, two Now York, two New
Jersey. one Delaware, one
Maryland, one South Carolina, ono
Georgia, one Mississippi, one
Michigan, one Oregon and one Cal
ifornia. Divided politically there
would bo fourteen Uepublicaus to
ten Democrat! to sustain the veto
nnd twenty-four Republican and
twenty-seven Democratic Senators
ready to pass tho bill over it. Davis,
of Illinois, beiug for ISe purposes of
tliis calculation, as he may, in fact,
lie practically considered for all
others, classed as a Democrat.

ous and radical amendments. They
objeot most strenuously to the im
position of duties on raw materials
as a direct blow lo the manufac
turing interests of the country, but
confess that their surprise at this
proposition is heightened by the
fact that, whereas tlio whole value
of imported goods made free only
amounts to less than four million
doMara and the duties relinquished
thereon to less than fifteen hundred
thousand, yet tho value of import
ed raw material, now free, which
the bill proposes to tax, amounts to
$47,608,800 and the taxation im
posed thereon to $0,150,900.

HeVI.IV Uf llio E.1£11.1l Situation
LONDON, Feb, 16th.—Tbe mili
tary situatiou as well as tbe diplo
matic connection with tbe Eastorn
question becomes more interesting
aud complicated than ever. Still It
is simple enough. Upou a thought
ful review England, in forcing her
lleet through the Dardanelles des
pite the Turkisn protest, has aban
doned, defied and repudiated the
treaty of Paris, hitherto claimed as
her pretext for attempting to re
strain the Russian advance towards
India's back door. This naval dem
onstration was also a positive act
of invasive war against Turkey as
well as a threatening defi
ance of the conqueror, who lias be
come tho Sultan's temporary sov
ereign. It Is admitted that the sit
uation looks squally and yet tho
fact that there is no panic iv Eng
lish funds, confirms and justifies
the cool conviction nmoug the poli
ticians here that after all there is
no real anticipation that the war is
to break out anew or Involve new
parties. The British Minister had
undertaken to bully Russia as (lie
cheapest method of protecting tho
English interests, which are sup
posed to ho bound up with the Otto
man Empire. The snubbing which
Eugland thus provoked seriously
wounded British pride and dually
has maddened the English masses,
who reason from impulse rather
[ than conviction. In this condition
of affairs the Government found it
could keep control of tho situation
at home ouly by a bold step
abroad. It took that step In dis
patching its (loot to tho sea of Mar
mora, but tlio firmness of consols
and tho conciliatory and
war deprecating tone" of to
day's limes, alike Indicate that
thero is no real intention on the
part of tho British Government to
force fighting in Constantinople.
Under the circumstances, that
would almost certainly result iv
renewed British humiliation ns
well as serious loss of prestige anil
prosperity, to say nothing of hu
man lives. True, undoubtedly
brave England sometimes lights
without counting the cost, hut un
less Russia proves less sagaciously
prudent in the future than in the
past, England has played her last
card prior to the peaco conference.
Having herself committed au act
of war against Turkey, England's
notice that Russia will bo respon
sible for the consequences if the
latter take steps towards Constan
tinople iv order to secure what slie
lias already wou by tbe contest,
must be remarked as mere brututn
fulmen. England has advanced
by sea to conquered Turkey's sea
coust and so Russian arms will ad
vance to tlio samo point on laud.
Tlio very extreme delicacy anil
danger of this situation to both par
ties must render both cautious and
conservative. Thinking men per
ceive that Russia, with her army
already on the spot, is too much for
England upon the land.Should Kng
laud practically show a determin
ation to force a war with Russia by
attempting to follow her lleet with
transport ships aud troopg, Russia
would bejustilied in destroying the
ironclads before the troops could be
brought into effective position.
It would take but a few
hours to make tho Straits
impassable for British vessels by
the use of torpedoes, without re
sort to artillery from the shore.
Again, England is assailable in
her great commerce and iv India
and Egypt sho stauds alono with
out an ally. Turkey seeks shelter
now under her conquoror and foe.
Austria has received that wink
from Berlin and it is announced
accordingly that tho Imperial alli
ance remains intact. War for
Eugland, howover brave, under
such circumstances means only de
feat, and so it will not be accepted.
These considerations are the secret
of the profound indifference with
which the .London Exehango views
the situation. I repeat, only some
sudden accident cau widen the
Held of war and Russia in diplo
macy will give England no oppor
tunity of strengthening either her
moral or military influence in con
trolling tho solution to be reached.
The strength of the secret alliauce
between Uermauy, Austria aud
Russia is further indicated hy the
fact that Russia, always prudeut,
and though without adequate
means of reinforcement by sea,
trusts her great army near Con
stantinople with no line of supply
except that iv its rear. It is incon
ceivable that the Czar would take
this risk except under guarantees
that his communications shall uot
begtbreatened by any continental
power. The fact' that England
vlolutes tbo Treaty of Paris is
against litem no less tbnu against
the Porte, aud certainly gives no
new title to continental support.
It is not impossible that she may
be even compelled to negotiate for
the eacapo of the British fleet from
the perilous position in which the
blundering policy lias placed it.
