What Our People Should Do.
The HERAT.n bos never sigual
iied Itself as a •■bucker" against
the Central and Southern Pacific
Railway!, and for a simple reason,
which we can epitomize in a word,
via., we don't believe in posturiz
tog for a losing fight. Qiveu a cer
tain percentage of a chance of win
ning aud there is not au anti-mon
opoly shrieker in the country who
would buckle on his armor more
loyally for tbe combat than we. As
Solomon very neatly remarked,
several thousand years ago, "there
is a time for everything." Tbe
time to "bounce" a powerful cor
poration (we use the singular be
cause tho Central and Southern
Pacific Railways are practically
one} is wbeu you have it in tbe
door and not when it has you there.
There is all tho difference 'twixt
tweedledum and tweedledee in this
aspect ol the matter. Even lv the
details of vulgar broils there is
nothing like "knowing your man"
and your "time." "Time is of the
essence of tbe contract," to use a
legal phrase, in such a fight.
For tbe same reason that we have
refrained from "bouncing" a cor
■oration which ha* tbe wbipband
of this community for tbe present,
we have not enthused for the Tex
as-Paeifle Railway. We are as
sensible as any one can be of tbe
benefit a competing transconti
nental railway would ultimately be
to Los Angelen, even though Han
Diego should ha made its Pacific
terminus. But, ever .since the ed
itor of the Herald ceased to edit
a San Diego paper, with lhe febrile
hopes and cold disappointments in
cident to auoii a role, be has become
commonplace and practical. There
were two impediments to our com
mitting ourselves to tbe Texas-Pa
ciflo Railway sc!iem». One was
tbe fact that we knew that 11 ■■■ guar
antee would never p t«; the second
was that we knew tin', if it did
piss, Tom Scott, being essentially
a played-out railway king and con
nubiator, though personally a very
genial and fascinating man, would
sell out the competition idea us
fully and cordially aa be sold out
San Diego when lie developed the
idea that the distinctive Lis Ange
les and Han Francisco route for ills
Texas-Pacific was "cunimerciuliy
shorter" than tlio li mest Sau
Diego mule "from Marshall, in the
State of Texan, to tidewater in the
bay of Sart Diego," wou d have
|r Very few render* of newspapers
bave paused to note tlie signal pre
cision and prevision of the railway
opinions or tlie Herald. At every
stage of our outgiving* we have
been absolutely ucourate, though
wa may have appeared to be reck-'
less. We are willing to stake and
jeopardi/ • all the points hereto-
I tofore made by us on the iiual prop
' osition that the Texas-Pacific Rail
way project, as far as regards this
side of tbe oiiitinent, was mori
bund when Col. Tom Scott started
for Switzerland, on a trip of physi
cal an I msnti! recuperation
Are we, because Tom Scott, as a
► powerful motor in rail way matters,
is dead, to relinquish all hope for
fair play iv transportation matters?
We answer, by no means.
We have a lively recollection of
tbe crusade which our respected
contemporary, tho Express, inau
gurated against tbo Southern Pa
cific and iv favor of theTexas-Pa
ciflc. It always seemed to mas If
tbe "set" in tlie negro minstrels, in
whioh the ragaraullln visitors were
"bounced," was imitated iv that
lively aud vigorous episode, which
was sustained by tlie Express in
tbe sanctum and by tbe Messrs.
Howard and Gauahl on the ros
trum. It really looked to us as if
tbe Southern Pacific should not
be allowed to have a clianeo lo get
Itself right on the record, according
to these gentlemen. Tbo managers
of the movement aeteil as If they
had a victim whose brow was eu
gariaudfd with ttie sacrifijlal fil
lets. Nothing was to to be done
but to place the railway people on
the pyro ami to Bet aglow tbo sacri
ficial fire. We think that almost
any oue will agree with us that lhe
due amount of caloric for the cre
mation was absent.
It Is Impossible to disguise tbe
faot tbat our people to-day abso
lutely need tostrika an attitude on
tbe railway question—-not an iv-
Suiting and aggressive one, such as
characterized the visit of Mr.
Crocker to Los Angeles last year.
It is of tbe utmost moment that we
should learn just what tbe railway
people impose to do In all that
tlie interests of this
c we are not in a condl
nee" tbe railway, or to
though we were ad
tMUnrl boy nt a buok
v» a rpspectable cause
ids their respectful ut
-jotntion, if temperatoiy tigged. The
united complaint of Ibis commu
nity agaiust tbe extension of tbe
Southern Pacific would havo a
most potent effect at Washington.
We think we cau get Justice and
recognition from this mammoth
corporation if we go about it iv the
right spirit, leaving insult and ag
gravation out of our posture. With
the talk about Mo|ave "cut-offs"
self preservation calls upon us to
act. Should we fail to establish an
entente cordiale with the Southern
Pacifio we have do recourso but to
memorialize Congress and the
world at large, with, as a matter of
simple nocesslty, tbo construction
of a narrow gauge railway to tide
water, with its accompanying
wharf, and tho extension of narrow
gauge railways to the limit of
commanding tbe business or our
owu county at least, with tbe sea as
our eternal ally.
Are our people ready to take a
moderate and praclioal stand on
the issue which now faces us?

Sacramento, Dec. 9.—Tbe Con
vention reassembled at 7 o'clock,
Larkln In the Chair.
Barbour, White and Howard sev
erally rose to questions of privilege
upon the correspondence In a San
Krancisco paper insinuating that
the railroad company was ibe real
author of tho section In nrticle oue
on railroads establishing tbo pro
jected Commission. Tbey all de
nied the imputation contained In
O'Donnell next claimed the at;

Chronicle's attack upon him, da
nounelug the manager*of that cou
cem as common libeller!*.
Tbe Convention then went into
Committee of tbo Wbolo on the ar
ticle on the Chinese.
Ayers offered a verbal amend
ment to tbe fust lection, staking
out certain words authorizing the
Legislature to pass laws on this
subject ami making it mandatory
upon them to do so.
Col. Stuart, of Sonoma, next ad
dressed the Convention. Hestated
that he had lived nearly twenty
years in California. During thai
time lie bad been engaged in farm
ing and had brought up a large
family. C»J. S-.Uart stated that ail
tbe sections in Hie article were to
tally unfit to lio inserted In any
constitution. Tbey were contrary
tn tho Constitution of the United
States He believed tbat the
farmers, tbe produccts, warned Ihe
Chinamen to cook and become
hewers of wood and drawers of
water. He considered that the Chi
namen bad helped to develop the
State. Tbey were invited to come
to the Stato and treaties Were
made in support of such invitation.
At that time the colored contra
band was the disturbing element In
politics; now it is tlie Chinese. He
bad employed hundreds and thou
sands of men in hi* time, Chinese
and whiles included. Tiie idea
tbat tbe Anglo-American was
cuing to be driven out by lhe
Chinese is absurd. One whito
man ii wortli two Chinamen,
one Chinaman Is worth two
uegroes, but one negro was worth
two tramps. If lie was in a con
vention of tbe United States he
would like toObange lho naturali
zation laws so as not to bave so
many men tramping tlie country.
White, of Santa Cruz, as a farmer
in lhe Pajaro valley, denied that
the farmers were in favor of Chi
nese immigration. He had worked
as a farmer for twenty-five years
and had uever employed China
men. He denied that the tramps
were as described by Stuart. He
had never found a white man wbo
bad refused work when offered it.
He bad found it cheaper to em
ploy white labor over Chinese.
There wore no servant girls in Cal
ifornia, like ten years ago, because
their places had all been taken by
Chinese. The employment officers
In Sau Francisco stated that white
girls would not crime here.
O'Sulllvau, as an American
born in Ireland, protested against
tbe abuse ot tramp-). There were

London, Dec. 9lh.—Tho follow
ing is the text of tbo letter of tbo
Ameer of Afghanistan to the
Viceroy of India in reply to Ihe
Ultimatum: Be it known to your
Excellency that 1 have received
and read from beginning to end the
friendly letter of your Excellency in
reply to tbe letter I dispatched by
Nawab Gbolar Huesim Khan.
With regard to tbe expressions
used by your Excellency iv tlie be
ginning of your letter, referring to
tbe friendly character of the mis
sion ami good will of Ibe British
government, I leave it to your Ex
oellenoy, whose wisdom and jus
tice are universally admitted, to
decide whether any reliance can be
placed upon good will, if evidenced
by words only. But if, on the
other band, good will really
consists of deeds, then
it has not heeu mani
fested by tl.o various wishes]
expressed aud preposals made by
British officials during tho last few
years to officials of this God grant
ed government, proposals which,
from their nature, it was impossi
ble for them to comply with. One of
those referred to by my undiitiful
son, tlie ill-starred wretch, Mali
motid Yakoob Khan, and were con
tained in the le'ters addressed by
officials of the British government
to tbe British agent then residing
at Cabul. It was written in that
letter that, "If Yakoob Khan Ue
released and eet ut liberty our
friendship with Afybanisian will
be firmly cemented, otherwise it
will not." There are several other
grounds of complaint of a similar
nature which contain no evidence
of good will, but which were effect
ive in increasing tlie aversion ami
apprehension already entertained
by tlie subjects of tbis Goil granted
government. With re,;ard to my
refusal to receive lho British Mis
sion, your Excellency bus stated
that it would appear trorn.my con
duct, that I was actuated by feel
ings of tlirect hostility toward the
British government. I assure your
Excellency Ihat, on the contrary,
the officials of this God granted
government, in repulsing tne mis
sion, were not influenced by hos
lile or inimical feeliugs toward tbe
British government, nor diil liny
intend that any iusult or aTn nt
should be ottered, but they were
afraid Ihe independence of the gov
ern nun', might be atf, cte 1 liy the ar
rival of the mission, ami the friend
ship which has now existed be
tween the two governments for
several years.inigbt be annihilated.
A paragraph iv your Excellency,*
letter corroborated tbe statements
which tbey have made to tbis gov
ernment. Tbe feelings of appre
hension amused in the minds of tha
people of Afghanistan by tbe mere
announcement of the intention of
tbe British government io send a
mission to Cabul, before tbe mis
sion itself hail actually started or
arrived at Pis'iawu', baa sub>e
quently been fully lestilled by tbe
statement in your Excellency's let
ter, tbat I would be held
responsible for any injury
that might befall the tribes
w he acted as guides to the mission
and that I should be called upon to
pay compensation for tiny loss they
might have eulfered, and tbat if at
any time those tribes should meet
with ill treatment at my bands,
the British government would take
e'.eps to protect them. Had these
apprehensions proven groundless
and had tbo object of tbe mission
been really friendly,and no force or
tbtcats of violence been used, tin
mission would, as a matter of
course, have been allowed free pas
sage, as such mission* are of cus
tomary and frequent occurrence be
tween allied States. lam now sin
cerely stating my own feelings
when I say that tbis government
has maiutained and will always
maintain the friendship which has
existed between the governments
and will cherish no feelings of hos
tlllty or opposition towards tlie
British government, ft is also in
cumbeiH upon tbo officers of the
British goverumeut that, out of re
spect for tlie greatness and cmi
nence of this government, they
should not consent to inflict any
injury 011 their well disposed neigh
bors, or to impose v burdeu of
trouble on the shoulders of their
siucei'9 friends; but, on the con
trary, they should exert themselves
to maintain tbe friendly feelings
which have hitherto existed
towards this government, In order
thai the relations between the two
governments may remuin on the
same footing ns before, and If, in
accordance with oustom, the allied
States of the British government
should desire to send a purely
friendly and temporary mission to
this country, with a smali escort,
