We, the Democracy of Ijos An

Constitution for California should

ples ami rules of conduct, viz :
The State shall control nil non

never abandon or relinquish the
right lo regulate and coutrol fares,

Discrimination in any form
ill fivor of or against any
person or locality shall be ex

Monopoly of Ibe soil should be
discouraged as being fraught with
peril to the masses of the people.
The acquisition, cultivation aud
improvement of small farms should
be fostered, and that these objects
may bo effectually reached a
just and equitable system of taxa
tion should bo provide I for which
will force the uncultivated aud un
improved territory of the monopo
list to bear its proper portion of the
publio expense, and such unim
proved land shall be assessed at the
same rate as improved prop
erly of a similar quality. Improve
ments shall bo assessed separate
ly from real estate, taxation shall
be based upon actual value. No
one shall he assessed for his debts;
all shall pay taxes upon what they
are truly worth.
The welfare of the masses and
the demands of morality aud good
government require lhat the Chi
nese immigration shall cease and
that those Mongolians who are vow
among us shall depart, and we
therefore declare Unit the right to

The public school fund shall for

and shall never be used for any
purpose save for the rnuintenauce
of such public schools.
The Judicial system of tho State
must be so revised and simplified
that the rights of litigants, wheth
er rich or poor, may be speedily,
cheaply uud justly determined.
The Grand Jury system should
be abolished as being a Star
Chamber proceeding, inconsistent
with the practical demands of the
times and productive of enormous
and ever-continuing expense. The
prosecutlug officers of tlie various
counties should be given power,
under due restrictions, to file infor
mations against persons accused of
crime, whloh informations should

it of doubtful propriety for me to

tended for on behalf of the farming

The Bunko Sharps Again.
The bunko sharps who have
been plyiug their nefarious trade
in this city for some time past,
made an attempt to take iv Mr.
Fischer, of San Diego, who is here
on a visit, yesterday. A stranger
met him on the street and spoke to
him iv a familiar way. Fischer
did not respond In the same lone,
when the stranger said, " Don't
you know me? I am Mr. Nesmitb,
brother of the Pro-iJent of tlie San
Diego Bank, and am going down
ou tha next steamer." Au ac
quaintance was struck up and the
caliper, as he turned out to be, said
that, he hud some business lo trans
act, aud led lho unsuspecting San
Diegan into a recently fltted up
lottery effice In the Siguoret build
ing, on the corner of Main and Ar
cadia streets. Here tho stranger
presented a ticket and received
iheiefor $150 in gold. Fischer did
not bile, however, his suspicions
having been aroused, but con
veyed information lo tlie po
lice. An officer was at once
dispatched to investigate. He
climbed to the roof or the awn
lug In front of the building aud
peered through the wiudow, where
he saw Ihe whole paraphernalia of
tlie lottery office. He hastened
back to the City Court to
procure the necessary war
rant for making a seizure
und arrest, but his movements had
been discovered. By the time he
got buck to tho deu it had beeu
stripped of its entire contents
and the birds ha i flown.

THE PREVENTION OF A TERRIBLE
No disorders, excepting the most dsad*
ly firms of luug disease, Involve such a
tremendous destruction of organic tissue

-net! maladies, when they becunie
chronic—and none are so liable to as
sume that phase—c unpletcly wreck tho
system. To prevent this terrible dls tster
recourse should bo had, upon the first,
manifestation of trouble, to tsostetter's
Hitters, which experience has proved to
be highly effective as v means of Impart
ing tone and regularity to the organs of
urlautlon, as well as iv thti liver, stom
ach and hotels. Another beneficial re*
suit of tbls medlctue, naturally conse
quent upon Its diuretic actlun, Is tbe
elimination from the blood of impurities
which beget rheumatism, gout, dropsy,
aud other maladies. By increasing Ihe
activity of the kidneys, It augments the
depurailve efficiency of those organs,
which are most Important outlets for the
escape ot such impurities.
