There is one feature of curreut
political developments to which wo
have a right te call attention. The
stupidest readers of newspapers ca u
uotfail to have observed that it is
only lately that the pretensions of
capital are antagonized in any
ahape whatever in tho United
States. With the Republican party
in undisputed ascendancy, what
earthly chance would the silver bill
liave of passing the American Con
gress? All tbe capitalists would
lave had to do with a Congress Re
publican in both branches, would
have been to indicate In what cor
ner of a noted highway, or what
turn of a by-way, they should erect
their Gessler's cap, te have that
body discredit the Tell episode, and
Rend the pregnant hinges
lee. How differently are
anaged now? CaiDcidently
partial ascendancy ef the
.tic party in national af
see tbe manifestation of
Jackson spirit. Seuator
Jones, a Republican Senator, it is
true, has been the real Cerypheus
of the silver movement. But then
Senator Jones is only an accidental
Republican. Of all the men who
have attained great wealth on tbe
Pacific Coast John F. Jones is the
man who has distinctively Kept
intact bis sympathy with the
masses from which be sprang, and,
consequently, he must be a very
apocryphal Republican. We re
gard Senator Jenes, iirespective of
the party to which he happens to
belong, as distinctively the repre
sentative Senator of tbe Pacific
Coast. Iv championing the
remonetization of silver lie
represents the American idea
and himself, principally. We en
tirely acquit him of any sel
fish motive iv his attitude. If he
did not possess a particle of interest
in the Cotnstock lode, his attitude,
on a full presentation of the mat
ter, would be tbe same, although,
or course, his individual studies
would not have been so exhaustive
on this topic, on which, in every
phase of its discussion, lie has been
facile princeps. But Jones, iv a
Congress Republican in botli
branches, was and would have con
«Jvir*4eil to be absolutely powerless.
In a Democratic Congress lie at
last wields bis just influence. His
ideas are successful through the
fact that, in leturning to Democ
racy.; tbe nation is resuming the
stery of the thoroughly popular,
energetic aud patriotic chapters of
Its earlier history.
Our contemporary, the Express,
rushes to the conclusion that tlie
failure of the Democratic majority
of tbe California Senate to pass a
just fares ami freights bill will
wreck the Democratic parly of
California. We assure our contem
porary that it will do nothing of
the kind. It will simply result iv
a new set of leaders, who will rep
resent the only party that has a
real sympathy with tho masses,
and the only party which, we beg
to assure our contemporary, has
never created any overshadowing
corporations. lustead of leaders
with no party, it will simply bo a
party witli new leaders. No man
who has inherited two or three
generations of Democratic blood is
going to be ungrateful to the long
and splendid struggle of the De
mocracy to assert the popular
rights. His a somewhat curious
feature of political or journalistic
ethics that our evening contempo
rary, which assumes to be so thor
oughly down on corporations,
should be an enthusiastic advocate
of the Tom Scott guarantee, a
patent process for further depleting
the U. 8. Treasury. One thing is
apparent to any one who has read
the speeches of tho Messrs. Scott
and Hfmtlngtou before tho House
Railway Committee, and that is
that each succeeded iv utterly de
molishing the other. There was
hardly a Kilkenny's cat reminis
cence— tbe tail—left of either.
Huntington, however, stood on
high moral ground in lhat lie had
not the impudence to demand a
subsidy, and ottered to put
his line unreservedly under the
control of Congress. As to the
other positions of our contempo
rary, it is enough to say that either
tbe Democratic or Republican
party will elect the next President,
with just ninety and three-quarters
percent, in favor of the Demoeracj
doing it. There is going to bo ik
stampede from a party with such i
record as the Democracy, and sucl
a vantage ground for the future ni
While a chorus of—what shall
we soy ? — well, wo summon a
Christian forbearance and say
scholars and gentlemen, are favor
ing the Herald with left-handed
compliments apropos of our atti
tude on tlie railway question, we
simply wait. If our estimate of
the railway i-iluation does not
prove the corract one (we speak
personally because our individual
name is extensively bandied.) we
agree to pack our effects Into the
smallest possible compass and
leave this section for aye. We
have declined to indulge the role
of dreamer. The day of
subsidy is passed. If the
Democratic party were insane
and criminal enough to assume a
role which Is elfeto even in the
hands of the young Republican
party, it would deserve tho univer
sal rebuke which it would meet.
But the Democratic party lias, iv
our opinion, no earthly intention
of doing this. lustead of forfeiting
its almost hundred year record by
new subsidies an 1 largesses of the
people's money, whether Tom
Scott or Tom Noddy is the peti
tioner, it will apply itself to mak
ing corporations aires 1y signally
favored, and insensible to those fa
vors, come to taw. We hope this

but, whether It is or no, tlie great
Democracy of the nation is as re
liable now as iv the days of Thomas
It is probably no exaggeration
to say that at least two bundled
thousand acres of land arc in culti
vation, iv some shape or another,
in Los Angeles county. Tills would
leave three million one hundred
thousand acres of mountain and
mesa lands. Throwing out say
eight liuudrcd thousand acres for
inaccessiblo mountain fastnesses,
that would leave two million three
hundred thousand acres of splendid
pii9ture lands. Ju-t think of it, for
a niomenl! Tho aliilcrillo on all
our lauds to-day ranges from six to
twenty luohea iv height. It is as
thick as au Eastern clover field.
So rank ant! luxuriant is the
growth of tlie grass till over this
county, this year, that We think a
moderate estimate would be two
tons of hay to the acre. It will
easily average that before the sea
son is through. Hero we have up
wards of four millions of tons of
hay which have not been sown at
all, and which will cure itself on
the ground. The scant pastures of
the East have to be cut and gar
nered and built up iv stacks. Here
we have a reserve of four million
tons of cattle aud sheep feed which
does uot require the least attention,
and which will nourish animal
life as perfectly as any clover ever
grown and stacked. This is of
itself au immense element <>f
wealth, and we need have no
doubt whatever but that it will be

We have no earthly sympathy
with any phase of the Chinese
question except tiiat of their grad

for the Chinamen and the non
adoption of greenbacks, this would
to-day be a fabulously rich region.
It is a disproportionately rich land
now, but it would have ba-'u a

A correspondent writing from
Tokio on tlie prospects of trade
with that country In American
During and after the Philadelphia
Exposition the Japanese Commis
sion bought a large quantity ot ag
ricultural implements, aud so
anxious were the dealers to open a
trade with Japan that they sold
these sample articles at less than
wholesale figures, fu due course of
time the things arrived here, aud
the sharp-eyed mechanics went to
work to copy them. They are now
making cast iron plows just as
cheaply as wo can make thorn iv
America, aud at less price than it
would cost to deliver them here.
Harrows, cultivators, seed-sowers
and other similar simple imple
ments they are copying to perfec
tion. They may buy a few now
and then in America, hut it will be
the they may use them as
models. With reapers, mowers and
similar intricate constructions
they have not been successful
as yet, but are coulideut of doing
so iv time, and, in any event,
tho character of the country and
its agriculture and the low price of
labor will prevent a large demand
for this sort of labor-saving ma
chinery. JJoes, shovels and other
hand-tools they have not attempt
ed to any great extent, and thus far
they have not been able to get tho
peculiar strength and flexibility
which is the boast of the American
maker. The Japanese laborer is a
conservative being, and will not
readily surrender the implements
of his ancestors. Doubtless he will
do so in time, and when he
does he will purchase our produc
tions; provided, in the meanwhile,
a homemade article of equal ex
cellence does not come to light.
There are uo patent laws iv Japan,
and the inventor has no protection
if the native mechanics can suc
ceed in copying what he lias creat
ed. A young American came here
recently with fond hopes of mak
ing a fortune out of a refrigerator,
the invention of an enterprising
countryman, lint ho found, in the
first place, that the Japanese made
no u.-e of the article he brought;
and, second, they could copy them.
Iv Mississippi a patent has been
obtained for a method of collecting
taxeß upon drinks which is far bet
ter than tlie Moffat or Clarke reg

the State Auditor to all liquor
dealers. When a drink is sold the
consumer receives a coupon, which
entitles him to receive from the
State, in payment of his taxes, one
cent. If two drinks are to be paid
for he receives an orange-colored
coupon good for two cents. If live
drinks, a blue papar good for five
cents, Not only does the State en
joy an income from tho tax on
drinks, but the consumer has a
reasonable chance of paying off tils
taxes with the orange and blue
coupons. The saloons are crowded

A BOARDING HOUSE SENSATION.
A Lauy Vindicate* Her Honor by M;ans of a
A few days since the guests of a
fashionable boarding house, on
Ellis street, were Seated at the din
ner table enjoying tho more sub
stantial portions of tho bill of fare
Few of tho scats at tho half-dozen
tables around tho room were unoc
cupied. From a side door a lady
rushed into tlie room, rawhido in
hand, and approaching one of the
boarder*, showered blows iipun his
shoulders thick and fast. The la
dies shrieked, the gentlemen rose
to their feet, and tho party as
saulted, with both hands over his
face, rushed about, leekln ; either
to escape or run down tho Irate
eaatlgator. Some of the gentlemen
interfered, and upon order being
restored the lady Informed those
present that she had taken this
method of punishing tho man for
having first drugged and then out
raged her. She added that she was
alone iv tlie world, and having no
friends or male relatives to avenge
her wrong and not desiring to re
sort lo tho courts, had resolved to
publicly cowiiide her assailant.
Coming in late in the evening
from her labor, she observed tho
offending boarder in the sitting
room (which was also used In com
mon by the landlady) adjoining
her sleeping apartment. He In
formed her that the landlady had
gone out to procure oysters
(which was untrue), and invited
her to wait and partake of tlie id
valves, to which she consented. In
the meantime a glass of cham
pagne was handed her. Shortly
after taking tho wine, which she
thinks was drugged, she became
unconscious, and was only aroused
from her stupor late the next morn
ing, to find that the villain had
done liis worsi. Her assailant, she
says, subsequently offered her
money to keep quiet, which she
refused, and then she resorted to
tho best means within her power
of vindicating her honor. She bad
been asked why she did not use a
pistol, but she "knew nothing about
Dandling firearms, and was not in
a mood to learn at the time, The
names of the parties can be given
to tlie police, if they deem the case
worth Investigating. — Call, h\b.

Lord Brougham ami Barnes, for
merly editor of the Times cordially
detailed each other, and It is said
to have suddenly occurred to tbe
former, when he met with a coacli
accident on his way north, to spread
a report that he had been killed,
and thus hoax Barnes iuto writing
an obituary notice. To strengthen
tlie rumor he had his coffin ordered,
and all preparations made for his
funeral. In those days there were
no telegraph and no railways, and
and for a day or two the Times was
incredulous. Barnes, however,
dispatched a reporter to the north
by special post chaise, who went to
Lord Brougham's house, and,beiug
there shown the coffin with a pall
upon it, returned convinced. Next
day the Times came out with a bi
ography, every line of which, to
use a memorable phrase, was writ
ten with a pen dipped in venom
and gall. Brougham, it is said,
enjoyed the joke immensely.
Barnes, however, treasured it upas
an additional wrong.
A Modern Oedipus.
(New Yorit Tribune.)
A rich lead of romance has been
struck at Oakland, Maryland. A
poor father lives there, self-exiled,
■elf-buried, among strangers, sim
ply because ho married his sister
without knowing it. When he was
a lad of seven and she a lass of three
she was kidnapped, aud her parents
never heard of her again, although
they expended thousands search
ing for her. The heart-broken
mother died soon after tho loss of
tier darling, and the father wan
dered over Europe, and finally set
tled In New York, where he died.
The brother grew to manhood, and
tho memory of his lost sister was
almost effaced from hia mind. In
his twenty-seventh year, while vis
iting a married friend, he fell in
love with tho governess of his
friend's children, a beautiful
young lady of about twenty
three, and after some mouths they
were married and lived happily live
or six years, a hoy and a girl being
born to them during that time. By
tlie death of an uncle in San Fran
cisco the husband was left a consid
erable fortune, and the lawyer who
conveyed tho intelligence to hiui
also slated that Ills sister's caroer
had been traced. A trump on his
death bed iv a St. Louis police sta
tion confessed that ho and two
companions had stolen a little girl
for her clothes and a locket which
she wore, aud that she had contin
ued Willi them for several yeais,
when her bright, pretty face at
tracted the attention of a kind
hearted lady in Ohio, who adopted
her and sent her to school, where
she remained until her patroness
died. She then became a teacher
In a large school iv Cincinnati, but
as her health began to fail, she ap
plied for a position as governess.
"My God," cried the client. "She
has been my wife for livo years."
Ho had married his own sister.
