"Settled Questions."
Every now and then some jour
nal, occasionally Democratic and
at other times Republican, sets
itself up as intensely conservative.
It deprecates discussion and is filled
with horror at tbe idea of agitation.
One would suppose, from the trem
ulous utterances of those who con
trol these organs of emasculated
opinion, that something inexpres
sibly terrible attaen.es to mental
and moral energy, and that noth
ing is'so much to be deprecated as
• free discussion of the Issues of the
dsy.
We take great pleasure in assur
ing timid people that violent de
bate has always been a character
istic of the people of the United
States, both before aud after the
Declaration of Independence. The
American people remarkably re
semble the ancient people of
Athens as described by St. Paul.
They are continually going around
seeking something new. In the in
tellectual, as in the physical world,
there is nothing so discouraging as
mere torpidity.
Before our revolution we had the
little tea episode in Boston harbor,
with the interminable logomachies
which Introduced that fateful war.
We made articles of Confederation
in which we declared, in express
terms, that the document was to
be a bond of "perpetual union." In
1787—hardly five years after the
recognition of Am ericau Independ
ence—the people of tho United
States assembled to form a "more
perfect union," this time wisely
leaving the word "perpetual"
out. Tlie most violent controversies,
in which the whole fabric of society
seemed to be tested toits uttermost,
preceded the assembling of the Con
stitutional Convention,attended the
adoption and followed tbe formu
lating of the documeut known as
the Constitution of the United
States. Mr. Jefferson, for one sat
of reasons, was in a most lugubri
ous state of mind as to our future.
Mr. Hamilton, from precisely op
posite reasons, was also despondent
us to the durability of tbe Repub
lic. The air was darkened by tbe
fust flying missives of differing
tenor which assume J, on grounds
as antagonistic as tbe antipodes,
that the country was going to the
devil.
Finally tbe Constitution of tlie
United States got itself adopted,
and politicians of the optimist
school were justified in assuming
that something was settled. "On
the contrary, quite tbe reverse."
Probably no man who ever lived
was more calculated to disarm sus
picions of danger to the Republic
than Washington. And yet we
find the friends of Mr. Jefferson
(the Monticello statesman himself
never shared this error) even dis
trusted the Father of the Country
himself. Tbn men who ruled
America for sixty year*, and whose
influence was so strong that the
present Republican organization
borrowed one of their party
names, were never tired of in
dulging in tbe most gloomy Jere
miads as to tlie future.
Probably lite next distinctive de
parture in our politics dates from
tlie drawing up, by I lie hand of
Thomas Jeflersou himself, of the
bill for tlie government of the
Northwestern territories, which
forever excluded that slavery,
which New England fought for in
the Constitutional Convention,from
tlie virgin soil of that part
of tho Republic. Slavery was
then supposed to be a " settled
question." The tremendous agita
lion which ushered in the Missouri
Compromise showed how little de
peudance was to be placed in " set
tled questions" iv the Cuited
States. Hut, sueli as it was, the
Missouri Compromise served as the
text for the most interminable and
uulnteimitlent agitation ever wit
nessed in this couutry of agltallou.
The repeal of the Compromise, at
the instance of Stephen A. Doug
las, and the evolvemeut of the Re
publican parly as a consequence,
followed by I lie war, showed how
little af stability attached to any
(■base of our politics.
As a result of Ibis salient review
we draw what to us is an obvious
conclusion. Agitation, inquiry,
novelty, with the American peo
ple, as with the old Athenians, is
the very breath of our National
life. There are no settled questions
here. Everything Is in achameleou
condition, and tha passing popular
afaath determines its color. The
spirit of Bgitutien never, in ull our
history, had a more interesting de
velopment than that which at
taches to the uii-Ilepublican frauds
by which Hayes was declared
President. We only obey a logical
and irresistible impulse iv return
ing, ngain and again, to this mor
bid episode In sur history. The
agitation is certain to have re*
suits, aud there are nine chances
to one Hint the fermentation will
have results purely salutary. It is
perf tctly absurd to ask the Ameri
can people, with their history, to
refrain from a field which affords
such capital opportunities for agi
tation. Agitation is the atmos
phere in which our national life
was born, and it Is a thousand
times preferable to tbe stagnation
in which Republics are generally
extinguished.
The present year will be known
in history as that of "pour-par
lcrß." Our readers hove seen this
word continually out in
our European dispatches devoted
to the Eastern question. It'means
informal diplomas* chats. "Chat,"
in the vulgar American parlance,
moans "chin music." Aud "ye
Gods nnd little fishe*!'' what an
amount of it we have had siuce
England began posturtslng against
Russia? There have been fifty wars
of most momentous consequence to
mankind which have been ushered
in without one twentieth part of
the verbiage which we believe, iv
the present iostsnoe, will not be
attended by war at all. The whole
controversy has been v good deal
on the order of the sham lights in
the negro minstrel combinations,
in which one darkey recedes as the
other advances, und advances as
the other recedes. Tlie tremendous
diapason of the British Lion's roar
has seemed at times to intimidate
tbe Russian bear. Anon the
Northern Ursa Major has attitudi
nized for a bug and shown a double
bank of teeth and the lion has re
tired to his lair. When shall we see
an end to this international com
edy which, we think, will eventu
ate in words—mere words?
The casual visitor to Loi Ange
les to-day pronounces it tlie live
liest city In the State after San
Francisco, which is lively now ou! y
because It is large. Yet we all kuow
it is dull here just now and the rea
son is not rar lo seek. l.os Angeles
is, after all, a distinctively agricul
tural section, whatever may come
of commerce and manufactures, in
time. The fartnersare too btny with
their crops to come to the town.
The unexpected rains have in
volved a degree of labor and fixity
of residence rare in Southern Cali
fornia. Tins wiii, of course,change
in a few weeks; but, until tlie ag"
rlcultural Rubicon has been passed,
dullness Is a tiling to be looked for.
In addition, we aro now experi
encing tho full measure of the
drouth of last year. This time
next year a magical change will be
wrought, and we shall be rejoic
ing 111 the plenty of the present sea
son.
Ok courso, in thoir nominations
for delegates to the Constitutional
Convention, some regard should be
had for tlie Southern end of the
county by the Democratic County
Convention. That section is enti
tled to one member. We hear the
name of Judge Dick Eigan, of San
Juan Capistrano, very frequently
mentioned for the pos-itinn. Tlie
Judge is a popular and well-poi;ed
citizen aud would make an honest
ami reliable representative. Ex-
Supervisor Spurgeon and his suc
cessor, Mr. Oit, aro also favorably
mentioned.
Tue San Jose non-pariizan Cou
vention which assembles on the
30th iust., would do a very neat
thing, and one which would bo ap
preciated in Soutlieru California,
if they would nominate either Gen.
Volney E. Howard or Gen. George
Stoneman as the representative of
tlie Democracy, and Col. Ayers, as
the representative of the non-par
tizins, of l,os Angeles county, for
delegates at large to the Constitu
tional Convention from the Fourth
district. As we ale denied our
proper representation in that body
it should bo willing to make us the
amende honorable by giving us
moro than our share of the nomin
ations.

Washington special, in tlie cuurse
of some severe remarks on the sub
ject, says: The Indian Bureau is
greatly concerned übout the
charges of fraud against that or
ganization in awarding contracts.
Tho latest item of news to stir up
tlie Bureau is tlie intelligence re
ceived to-day of the deplorable
state of affairs among Ihe Ute In
dian.-', of Colorado. Tney are ou
the verge ut open rebellion against
tho government. They have com
plained of bad treatment for nearly
eight mouths; army ollieers have
justified their complaints and
clearly pointed out a practicable
remedy. Their reports, until very
recently, were utterly unheeded.
A short time ugo a Commission of
two civilians and au army officer
was appointed to investigate tlie
matter. There is no possible ex
cuse for this delay of several
months In inquiring into abuses
which, from present aspeels, may
at any moment result In an Indian
war in Colorado aud New Mexico.
TD9 Utes are a powerful nation,
there being over 8,000 in Colorado
und some 2,UUO in New Mexico. If
they resolve on war it la admitted
on all hands that the Indian Bu
reau, and that alone, will be to
blame.

John A. Palie, the present incum
bent, lor State Treasurer.
The following resolutions were
adopted:
First—That the motives and gen
eral course of the administration of
President Hayes have our hearty
approbation; and, though a diUer
eueo as to policy may exist, we re
joice lv the belief that both tho
Executive and tbe Republicans In
Congress are disposed to suffer no
divisions, but, on the contrary, to
observe the excelleut precept of In
essentials unity, in non-essentials
liberty, aud in all things charity.
Second—That, while welcoming
and shrinking not from investlga
ton, we yet condemn cs unfilr,
uncallcil for ami revolutionary tbe
measuro of tbe Democratic House
of Representatives to investigate a
part only of tbe facts pertaining to
the Preiidential electors, and con
sider tbat all efforts to reopen a
question of such magnitude after it
lias once been lawfully and, ai we
believe, Justly closed, are detri
mental to prosperity, perilous
to the peace of the eouutry, and de
serving of tbe reprehension of all
good citizens.
Third—That while we deplore the
opposition of a portion of the South
to the efforts of the administration
to give equal rights and privileges
to all citizens of the whole country,
we do recognize the patriotic ac
tion and devotion of thoso in that
section who now stand firm for the
Union nud the perpetuity of good
government.
