» Wb notice here end there en in
timation that the Herald, in Its
oblique good humor to Gsn. Ben
tamtn F. Butler in his Gubernato
rial candidacy In Massachusetts,
dew not occupy reliable Democrat
lo (round. Now as we are person
ally cognizant of the fsctthst Gen.
Butler will receive seven-eighths of
t'te Democratic vote of Massachu
setts we are not far out of line with
Democratic sentiment in tbe Bay
BUte, at least. But we place our
notion on broader grounds. We do
not envy the Intellectual scope of
than* who think that tbe Republi
can party U dead. The fact is that
we do not wish to see it die. While
we think it nseds a place of pen
anon for years—say for two Presi
dential terms —the Republican
party has n history whioh makes it
worthy rather of reformation than
extinction. Still, while we concede
its claims to this extent, we are
heartily anxious to ses It defeated.
Wo welcome tbe evidences of its
weakness which are apparent in
that centrifugal attraction which
thrown such men as Butler out of
Its ranks. We are good humored
With Butler himself because he is a
political weather-cock. By easy
Stages he is making his way back
to tho Democratic party. He k new
whoa to Join tbs Republican party
nnd when to leave It. He is a sa
gacious man and a friend of the
people, besides, which makes us
fsel friendly towards him. In ad
dition, twenty years ago Ben But
ler was the regular Democratic
oandldate for Governor of Massa
chusetts and the fact that a large
majority ef the Democracy of Mass
achusetts warm up to him as a
Democratic oandldate in this year
of grace 1878 struck us as a pleasant
oiroumstanoe. We dislike, us much
no any one can, the stratagem and
force to which the large majority
nf tbe delegates to the regular Dem
ocratic State Convention of Mass-
Mhusstts resorted to make
Butler tbelr candidate. But we
hove tbe old Latin maxim for a
guarantee tbst "to err is human,"
and we think the impulse was
good. A Bump Democratic Con
vention has assembled and nomi
nated Mr. Abbott as the Demo,
cratis candidate for Governor. The
smallness of the vote Abbott will
receive will be the fitting commen
tary on the wisdom nf tills action.
The Republican party attained its
great success by welcoming Demo
erata and Whigs, impartially, into
its ranks. The Democratic party
baa been out of power so long that
we had hoped it had learned the
aweet and bitter uses of adversity,
nnd had borrowed some of that pro
found cunning which, more than
its high sounding and hypocritical
professions, has been the real secret
of the success of the Republican
parly. No black-ball of ouis will
ever Impede the return of Ben
Butler or any one else to the Dem
Thk Democratic pirty needs all
tht allies it eau get aud it lias a
pre-emption claim upon the green
back element. O?o. H. Pendleton,
whom the Democratic Legislature
lately elected Senator from Ohio,
Is tbe original patentee of the only

States can ba persuade I to eucour

The Democratic party, by ab

Tb* country needs to te relieved
from tbe capitalist straight jacket
which has almost suffocated it.

tevidlopt to particularize where

seems just now to monopolize most
of the travel and prospecting. Ar

The Alia, commenting upon a
paragraph which appeared in the
Herald, siys that there is no
probability of Immediate work on
tbe Southern Pacific Arizona
wards. Iv a live-line item iv our
local columns we yesterday staled
that Col. Hewitt had received In
formation from railway head
quarters that construction was to
begin at once from Yuma Bast,
We are therefore Justified iv as
suming that tbe status in quo is at
an end and that railway construc

energy which characterised the
Southern Pacific two years ago.
The statement of Ihe Post that the

press of Los Angeles is doing yeo
man's work for tins section, aud
whatever advertising is done, or
publicity is sought, during or as
an Incident of the Fair, should be
in their columns. Established

From the enetgy and capability of
the gentlemen who have the mat

Bank Commissioners yesterday
tluished their work of examining
the accounts of the French Bank,
but havo not got their memoranda
In such shape that Ibey can make
a report before Monday. Tho exact

sum represents cash l iken from the

lie got possession of it date b ck to
1872. Mr. Mahfi was implicitly
trusted by all connected with tba
bank and bis word was law Willi

much attached to him. He had
everything in his own hands and

transfer It to France and give some

would be entered on oue book, but
Mr. Maho would tell the clerk not
to enter It upon the ledger until he
[was told to do so. The money
would no! lie sent to France, but
was taken into Mr. Male's personal
charge. These affairs were man

We take pleasure in announcing that our direct shipment
pf JAPAN TEAS from our agents at YOKOHAMA
are now on hand, ex-steamship "CHINA." These TEAS
(as per our instructions) have been carefully selected in the 4
most favorably known Tea Districts of Japan, especially
for our trade. The firing was done under tiie personal
supervision of our agent, wh has been instructed to see
that NO COLORING MATTER was used in the prepa
ration of these Teas. No effort has been spared, and we
feel safe in asserting that these are the Finest Teas ever 4
offered in this market. \
We shall receive shipments monthly, and so ensure a
constant supply of Fresh Teas, which in every instance
will be fully up to the excellence of this lot for PURITY
and FLAVOR. In order to protect consumers we have
adopted the annexed
which will be found on all our high-grade Teas. Re
ceiving our Teas direct from the producer, our customer*
arc saved the profits heretofore made first by the importer
and then by the jobber. We are thus enabled to sell Fine
Teas at prices which have been considered low for an or
dinary article. The public are cordially invited to in
spect this shipment, among which will be found some very |
curiously prepared Tea known as the "PIN LEAP," a >
Tea which is rarely allowed to leave Japan.
