Stanford and Kearney
Occasionally one whose duty it is
to writ* for tbe press comes across
an incident in the handling of
which be is repaid for much of tbe
arid journalistic ground which he
is obliged to traverse. It is a sort of
oasis in tbe deaert of every day
lire. Such is the interview which
Dennis Kearney lately had with
Gov. Stanford. Slightly travesty
ing the language of Commodore
Perry and applying it to Kearney,
he "met the enemy (Stanford.) and
was his'n." The ex-Governor un
inutcd the great agi
• latter left the rail
's presence with the
belief, mliy Impressed on heart
and memory, that Stanford was
a very good sort of a
man. Of this fact we
have no doubt. The ex-Governor,
ia tbe limestone country of the
Mohawk valley, New York, where
he was born, took on tbe giant
frame, robust physique and accom
panying mental etamina and soft
ness of heart which have enabled
him to rule as lord of Nob Hill and
to win the confidence of Kearney.
In his ingenuous confession of the
effects of that interview, Donnis
Kearney admits that Stanford is a
smarter man than he took him to
be. Now if Dennis ever doubted
the California Railway King's
smartness, he fell into an error
Which we havo never committed.
A man who can get himself recog
nized as tbe owner of a bank ac
count of twenty millions or so, who
can build transcontinental railways
and tell the United States govern
ment to call oil its dogs when
hunting up such a vulgar aud pro
saic incident as overdue and accu"
muiatod interest, whatever else he
may lack, is smart. In fact, tbe
American word is not the proper
one; he is not only smart but
clever, in the lull significance of
tbe English phrase. Dennis Kear
ney, in making this announcement
to the concourse assembled on the
Sand lots in Sau Francisco, is tell
ing not only a twice told but a
twenty times told tnle.
Dennis Kearney was told by
Stanford he is v working man.
And that reminds us of an old
Massachusetts story. One of the
early English Governors of the
Colony of Massachusetts Bay once
set a lot of Indians to work on a
public improvement. Tbey worked
faithfully for a time, including
their chief. But, finally, the latter
observed that, while the Euglish
Governor occasionally "bossed"
the job, be was very chary about
catching hold of a pick or shovel.
The incident made a deep impres
sion on the chief. One day he ap
proached the Euglish dignitary
und said, witdi the primeval sim
plicity of the forest, " You no
work." "Ob," said the Governor,
tapping his forehead significantly,
"I work head work." With an in
telligence which did him honor
tbe chief immediately applied
himself to consuming an indefinite
amount of lire-water. He got
royally drunk every day. Tbe de
moralizing etlects of this procedure
were soon apparent, and the Col
onial Governor tbouebt it well to
take tbo aboriginal chief to task.
Toe latter met the reproof with be
coming dignity. Remembering the
melodramatic gesture of his lectur
er on the previous occasion, he tap
ped his forehead with tbe dignity
of an Indian Chief, and replied,
"Me work head work, too." In
that one sense Gov. Stanford is un
doubtedly a working man.
But there Is something Arcadian
in the breezy and delicious frank
ness with which the ex-Governor
met the Agitator. When Kearney
reproached Stanford for employing
Chinese laborers, be was assured
by the Railway King that he had
to spend so much money in bribing
legislators at Sacramento not to
juin him that he was compelled
to make up the defi
ciency by cheap Chinese labor.
With the honest workingmen In
stalled as legislators at Sacramento,
he added, no money would have to
be paid out this way, and be would
then be abletoyield to the instincts
of his great labor-loving heart.
Then none but Caucasians would be
employed in running and extend
ing railways. "But the legislative
thieves and villains ot the Demo
cratic and Republican rarties,"
said the Governor, dropping easily
and naturally into the language
dear to tho heart of Dennis Kear
ney, "had now to be attended to.
Oh for the day when I shall have
only to dial with tho stalwart sons
of toll—the men who earn their
bread in tho sweat of their brows.
When that blessed day comes I am
ready to take my departure, to
sing myi.unc dimittta aud exclaim,
though even then my spirit be I
winging its night to the land of the I
'sweet by-uud-by,' 'Eureka!'" 1
Tbls was not exactly tbe lan- ,
guage of Oov. Stanford, but its t
spirit. Though we have not enjoyed J
,tho happiness of hearing it fall ,
from the lips or tho California rail
way king, even at a remove of five i
MjWwe are to
Bwiiuil tbee as the true
of tbe Labor party! We
Cad supposed, just as Kearney had
supposed, that thou wert one of
the luxurious Sybarites who be
lieved that capital was thoCorin
thiau column of society. Like
Kearney, we did thee injustice.
Like Kearney, we are undeceived;
and, like the great agitator, we
hasten to make tbeamende honora
ble, May thy labor-loving shadow
never be less!
The Lenten Season Over.
In a dogmatic sense the Lenten
season has just begun. Our Calbo
lio and Episcopalian fellow cilizeus
will recognize, with proper cere
monials and observances, the ad
vent of the drear and joy-debarring
forty odd days which will commem
orate the passion of the Saviour.
But, dropping religion, and apply
ing ourselves to the hard, dry facts,
California has unuergoae a Lenten
season from which the has just
emerged. It was a season charac
terized by all the natural drear
habiliments of woe—a season in
which the gracious rains failed, in
which our streams, always except
ing the Los Angelas, San Gabriel
and Santa Aua rivers, failed to ruu,
in which the underground waters
lost the impulse of freedom from
their rock Imprisonment, aud forgot
to bound forth to the sunlight with
their old Impetus, It was a season
iv which only bottom lands aud ir
rigated lands told a story of agri
cultural outcome. Happy was it
for Los Angelas county that she
had such a great abundance of such
lauds—that her mountain environ
ment, reachiug clear to tbo Devil's
Slide, iv Utah, guarantees her an
unfailing percolation of the regen
erating waters! We endured the
ordeal la a thorough manner, as
our unfailing water sources will en
able us to endure the next, which
will come, mayhap, six er seven
years from now. But the Easter
season this year, which will com
memorate Christ's deliverance from
the tomb, will also commemorate
the deliverance of California from
a great peril. One more year
of drouth .would have shaken us
to our center. Only ouce, since
the American occupation, have we
bad two years of drouth In succes
sion, in California. We have es
caped that calamity this year. We
havo never yet bad dealt out to us
the dismal dispensation of Egypt
in the days of Joseph, of seven fat
years followed by seven lean ones.
One In seven, with the exception
we have noted, is the extreme of
disaster to which we are subject iv
California. We are learning a
wisdom which will leave this dis
pensation not a disaster but a
profit, owing to our splendid irri
gating facilities, before tho next
comes, because we aro developing
our water. It is all this which
leads us to say that, while the In
dividual may be peniteutial and
rebuked during the present season,
the section itself should be joyful
because it has emerged from its
We publish in our local columns j
the text of the bill introduced by
Col. Smith in regard to Wilming
ton Harbor, about which so much
ado has been made. It will be
seen that the provisions of this
bill are regardful, to a punctilio, of
tho people's right to the water
front at Wilmington. There lias
really been no earthly causo for
anxiety, aud Col. Smith is proving
himself a vigilant friend of our in
terests in every respect.

Washington, Marcli 131h.—
House —After tho introduction
aud reference of a few bills the
House went into Committee of the
Whole, Cox in the Chair, ou the
diplomatic appropriation bill. The
Committee having proceeded to the
consideration of the bill by sec
tions, Hale moved to increase the
salaries of the Ministers to Great
Britain, France, Germany and
Russia to $17,500, instead of $15,000
as contemplated by the bill.
After considerable debate, Rea
gan, by unanimous consent, made
an explanation on tbe subject of tbe
proposed payment to mail route
contractors in tbe Confederate
States for services rendered before
the war and had read an extract
from his first report as Postmaster-
General of the Confederacy. Tbe
object ot the reading was to show
that he had been correct In stating
that be had,as Postmaster-General,
directed mall contractors to con
tinue the service under their con
tract with the United States, and
directed Postmasters to turn over
tbelr postage stamps aud money to
the United States before control of
the service was assumed by the
Confederacy. He confessed to hav
ing forgotten subsequent legisla
tion on tbe subject. He hoped the
House would not consider that he
bad been dealing unfairly or disin
genuously with it.
Cougar replied to Reagan. He
disclaimed any intention to reflect
upon him and in the matter of the
bill to pay Southern mail contract
ors, that gentleman had contra
dicted tho statement which he
(Conger) had made as to these con
tracts having been paid by the
Confederate Government. He (Con
ger) had met him aud overthrown
him with his own proclamation.
The gentleman from Texas had
also denied that these contractors
had been paid by the Confederate
Government, but Willets proved
that they had been. He did not
wish to say anything persoual
about the gentleman from Texas.
He accepted his explanation for
whatever that gentleman might
consider it worth. Still the charge
remained unanswered. Gentlo
men on tho other side who wore
familiar with the legislation of the
Confederate Congress and who
must havo known that over $800,
--000 had beeu appropriated by that
Congress to pay these contractors,
were silent upou that fact.
Douglas at this point roso to ask
a question of Conger. Conger de
clined to yield for that purpose,
but Douglas persisted and refused
to taUa his seat, as required by the
Chairman. Proceedings were thus
interrupted until Wood, of New
York, raised the question of order
that the whole discussion was ir
relevant to the bill before the com
mittee and therefore out of order.
Tbe Chairman sustained tbe point.
Conger then moved a formal
ameudment to tbe bill and pro
ceeded again to discuss the ques
tiou of Southern mail contractors,'
when a similar point of order was
made by l.uttrell and again sus
Atkins, Chairman of the Appro
priation Committee, expressed his
regret that the gentleman from
Michigan had not been allowed to
go on in his own way. It would
not have done a particle of harm,
as a false impression had been
made on the country.
Hera he was interrupted by a
like point of order by Reed, which
was also sustained by the Chair.
He thought it very unkind in the
gentleman from Maine to make
the point, but he (Atkins) had a
way of payiug debts and he would
probably be able to pay that debt
during their intercourse. •
Reed defined his course iv raising
the point of order and intimated
that the position held by the gen
tlemen from Tenncsse gave him no
more right to the floor than any
Atkius declared with sorue
warmth that the insinuation was
discreditable to the gentlemau's
Iteed—l have made no insinua
Atkins—The insinuation was
that I thought that I hud a right to
occupy tho lloor to the exclusion of
any other member. If it did not
mean that, it was drivel and non
Frye objected to any further dis
cussion of tbo question.
Atkius then proceeded to argue
against Hale's amendment increas
ing the appropriation for tho four
principal Ministers to Europe.
I.uttrell stated that most of the
American Consuls had violated the
law in regard to making quarterly
reports. In 1870 the number of em
igrants from Hong Kong had been
about 15,000 which, at $2 a head
Consul fees, should have amounted
to $30,000, whereas the Consul nt
that port had accounted for but
