Herald Steam Printing House.
rue Herald stream printing House Is
■nl surpassed by any Job Printing offlce
on tbe Paolllo Coast, outside of San Fran,
otsoo, in facilities for doing job work.
Low prloes, good work and expedition
mar be relied upon at this office.
New Jail and Court House.
Lioa Augeles county now owns a
poor farm ef her own. We hope
shortly to hear It chronicled that
this claas are made self-sustaining.
We are lv need of several other
things—ln urgent need of them.
One Is a Court House. Let any
one take a glance at the building
which Is at present dignified by
that title. Let him look into tbe
County Clerk's offlce, for instance.
He will be eurprised to note tbe
fragile character of the room in
which documents involving mil
lions of dollars are held. He will
notice that doors with glass com
partments are all that protect
these muniments of title and rec
ord* of Judicial proceedings from
spoliation. He will find that every
Inah of available space is already
taken up, and that all the drawers
are so chookful tbat, iv opening
and abutting them, the precious
Instrument* which they contain
are more or less defaced. Small as
tb* County Clerk's room Is, a por
tion of it has to be surrendered to
the use of the Auditor, who is
obliged to transact bis business in
a little cubby-bole of an apart
mantwhiob would not make more
than a respectable cell (or a con
vict. But, small a 9 bis accommo
dations are, he Is still compelled to
share them with the County Tax
Collector. Tbe provision for the
County Recorder is also grossly in
adequate. All these offlce* are
thronged at all hours of the day by
persons who have business to
transact. Tho public records are
increasing at an unheard-of rate,
aud they will soon litter the very
floors. There is no pretense that
this building ia fireproof and the
Idea would be laughable. It is a
veritable tinder box, aud if a fire
should gain any headway tbe en
tire destruction of the building ami
records would he inevitable.
But, urgent as is our need of a
new Court House, our need of
a new jail is still more
imperative. Tlie present one
is a disgrace to any civilized
place, however excelleully Jailor
Thompson may try to administer
it. It fa an outrage that any human
being should be crammed into such
a den. Worthy .people occa
sionally get into jail, uud to com
pel sucb to herd with tiie scum who
generally inlml.it this den is au of
fenofrwHUfl*! cries aloud to heaven
for redress. Night before last was
a capital instance of tbe
result of our neglect of
duty in this matter. An install
ment of four of the Sun Francisco
hoodlums who lately arrived from
San Francisco were thrust into this
institution amongst twenty or
more of tbe Los Angeles jail tqund.
A fight sprang up; and, in the ex
pressive language of a Los Angeles
policeman, our local culprits liter
ally "mopped the floor" with tbe
new-comers. What a glorious ex
perience sucb a scene would prove
to a respectable person who might,
by some mistake or caprice ou the
part of the administrators of tbe
law, have been immured tlieiein?
A new Court House ami a juil
Will uuquestiouably cost money,
but tbe sum need not be very
large. By an agreement between
tbe City Council and the Board of
Supervisors, the present Court
House could be sold for almost
money enough to build tbe new ed
iflee, tbe city furnishing tbe
ground. Accommodation for the
geveral municipal offic'als could
also be provided in the new build
Let us have the new building at
Whatever reasonable cost.
Wk are at a locs to understand
the reason for the unquestioned
movement here in force of tramps
from San Francisco. We have uot
beard anything which would lead
us to think that our people are any
more hospitable to these Ishmaels
or society than of yore, but that
they are coming In multitudes can
not be disputed. We have received
information which leads us to
think that between sixty and
■evenly of tbe people who arc gen
erally known aa "tramps" have
reached this city from San Frau
claoo during the past ten days.
Many of them avow that they are
en route to Arizona. We assure
■uch of these gentry vow resident
In the central and upper counties
who may meditate coming hero
that Loe Angeles county has not
lo«t any of their genus aud that
Arizona don't want them. The
man who supposes that a couch In
the hot sand anil cactus patches in
Arizona is equivalent to lying on n
bank of violets on which the soft
South winds play is fearfully mis
taken. More than In any quarter
of the American continent arc some
means, self-reliance and industry
needed in Arizona. It Is the last
country on tbe footstool for a
tramp. Thero are no cosy farm
houses, poultry yards, or other vag
abond coigns of vantage, to bo
avalUdof. It is often fifty miles
between houses and occasionally
thirty miles to water. No velvet
■ward or spreading, umbrageous
trees invite to that luxurious re
pose so dear to tbe tramp's heart.
While here and there a valley may
be encountered which could be
made rich by irrigatiou, and at
other points there are prosperous
agricultural settlements, such as
those of the Salt Kiver and Gila
valleys, as a general thing an arid
land reflects the blistering rays of
the sun with maddening intensity,
and the tramp who gels Into the
heart of one of these deserts is as
like as not to leave his bones to
bleach there. Arizona is the most
Inviting placo we know of just now
for persons of capital nnd ouergy;
but, for the tramp, it ia the last re
source on earth. The delights of
laziness and vagabondage would
vanish in a region in some parts of
which it is jokingly said that wheu
you put down your hand you grasp
either a rattlesnake or v piece of
prickly cactus. If tramps were
miners, industrious ami a little
ahead with this world's goods, we
would cheerfully advise them to
hie them to Arizonu. There they
would tlud innumerable lodes of
the precious metals which only
await development. But as tramps
are deficient in all these, they
should stay where they are.

ground that at that time defendant

Washington, Oct. 29th.—The
annual report of Commissioner
Williamson contains the following
statistics of the disposals of public
lands in California during the
flucal year: Taken for homestead,
249,668 acres; entered under the
Desert Land Law, 72,678 acres, di
vided ameng two huudred entries;
pre-emption and timber culture
entries, 230,983 acres; cash sales,
55.145 acres; cash receipts from all
sources, $435,556; incidental ex
penses of the land service iv Cali
fornia, $47,135. Twenty-three
thousand three hundred and forty
seven acres were patented to the
State as school sectious, 13,500 for
Internal Improvements and 24,097
for agricultural colleges. No rail
road grants on the Pacific Slope
have lapsed during the year. The
number of miles of railroad built
in California during the year was
1,229, which exceeds the total for
any other Klate, except Kansas,
1,654, and lowa, 1,580. Commis
sioner Williamson rocommends
that the law which requires the
endiiiirsof every mineral claim

committees of both corporations,
but nothing definite has been ar
ranged for ttie continuance of tbe
contract which virtually expireß

for certain classes of freight and
