Cwlones in lowa are eerioua things.
Aa a result of the last in lowa there are
■eventy-four people dead, five dying and
one hundred injured. Who would not
live in Southern California? A residence
here is eiinply beatitude as compared
with any other region on earth.
The Western Passenger association
have agreed on Eeven and eleven day
world's fair exsursions, to commence on
Jnly 17th, at one fare for the round trip.
Thia practically excludes California
from tho benefits of the reduction, as
seven days would barely cove* the time
spent in transitu.
Secretary Carlisle comes to the
front with a plan for meeting our pecu
niary complications that is at least rec
ommended by it novelty. It ie to pasß
a special resumption act, redeeming all
tbe forma of money now extant—nine in
all —and isaue instead United Stateß
treasury notea, whose value shall be
always fixed. There is much food for
thought in this scheme.
Tub alarm that waa felt for the illness
of President Cleveland haa happily
proven to be unfounded. Nothing more
serious than a bad cold and a temporary
mouth affection seeme to have occurred
to tbe chief magistrate, as a result of
exposure in Buzzard's Bay. It seems
that the hurried departure of the Presi
dent's stater for the scene of his vacation
was rather in anticipation of the joyous
illness of Mra. Cleveland than any seri
ous alarm about her brother's health.
Up till the past week or so the Los
Angeles clearances showed the heaviest
percentage of increase of any city in the
United States, and that by long odds.
Laat week they amounted to only |425,
--000, a decreaee of 43.5 per cent. Phila
delphia, San Francisco and Helena,
Montana, were the only places that
showed an increase, and that was a very
slight one. Of course our late bank
flurry was instrumental in this drop, as
it involved the suspension of several of
our banks. The indications are that we
shall soon ro3ume our splendid career
of financial progress. Our material ad
vance haa nover been interrupted, nor
will it be.
If San Francisco should really take
a new departure and build railroads to
the interior, there will bo no cause to
find fault witli her. It would bo a good
thing for the state if her people should
realize the fact tbat the great wealth
they have stored up in forty years of ac
cretions from the whole coaat would be
better employed in building railroads
than in letting it out at usury. But the
plan seems to be elaborated on the old
selfish scale, of getting large subsidies
lrom the interior towns for the purpose
of building the roada to them. At firat
sight one would think the Bay city
struck with a generous streak, but on
closer inspection the programme looks
as if the center of wealth intended to
give railway relief to interior towns
providing they will come down with the
subsidies required to bnild the roada.
OUR MINING FUTURE.
Whilst mining haa not bean alto
gether neglected in thia part of the
state, yet it has not received the atten
tion from capital which it deserves.
The field ie far more extenaive than
thoae who have paid but alight or
casual attention to it imagine. Take
from the Soledad canon to the Pirn dis
trict aud its extensions, and there ie a
stretch of country forty mtlea wide and
over forty in length, which ia what the
miners would term a "gold bearing"
belt. There are but few placea in this
vast extent of territory where the proa
pector cannot find the color, and yeara
before Marshall arouaed the gold-seek
ing ardor of the world by hia diecovery
at Coloma the yellow metal was success
fully mined within tbe area mentioned.
The drawback to mining activity in thia
great belt ia the paucity of water. It,
however, lies below a very extensive
water-ahed, and aome day capital Will
turn ita attention to the immenae facili
ties for storage of the precious element
and furnish the required desideratum to
make these placer regiona practically
Bat tbe auriferous area does not atop
here. Gold exists in paying deposits at
the heade of all the gulches and canons
that reach to the mountains which align
the Mojave desert to the weet. Pros
pectors have sufficiently determined this
fact to justify us in auguring the devel
opment of important placer mining
industries at the various points indi
cated aB soon aB capital, conjoined with
intelligent direction, turns its attention
to this great field of dormant wealth.
Already a great deal of good and profit
able work has been done in San Gabriel
canon, and miners whose views are
worthy of consideration believe that
the real hidden wealth in mines of that
can jn is yet to be made available by the
exploitation of tbe intelligent pros
The great mining future, however,
which ia to pour its countless ricbea into
the lap of Loa Angeles lies in the con
tiguous country east of the desert.
There are numberleea promising dis
tricts in the desert itself; but when
Southeastern California and Nevada are
opened to the hand of industry by the
railroads that are building and pro
jected, then will mining in thia part of
the state and ita tributary territory take
on a boom that will aatonish the coun
try. From Kearaarge to Pioche there
are numberless districts that have been
prospected and that are known to be
rich in precioue metals. If we should
draw a line reaching from tbeCandelarlo
mines, through Belmont to Robertson
district and thence to the boundary of
Utah, we would bisect one of the most
extensive mining regions in the world,
and all the districta lying south of that
line would naturally become tributary
to Lob Angelea. With a railroad afford
ing transportation to thia extenaive
stretch of country, the minera of all
that region would receive their supplies
from this city, and our commerce and
manufactures would be greatly enriched
by the trade and the raw .material that
would be derived from that immense
We are on the threshold of potential
ities of mineral wealth, which, supple
mented with our unlimited agricultural
resources, would alone warrant the
growth of a great commercial and man
ufacturing city here; but when we
farther consider our maritime situation,
and the position we hold toward the
commerce of the Pacific, ittS not claim
ing too much when we look forward to
the time, in the near future, when Los
Angeles will be one of the greatest cities
in the American union.
HUMOR AND HUMBUGGERY.
There ie, after all, nothing like having
nerve, or what iB popularly called gall.
It ia a sublime faculty, of a recondite
nature, but frequently aired in tbe broad
glare of day. It is sporadic and fitful in
its manifestations. It may -miss large
communities, and populations signalized
both by their wealth and intelligence,
and settle down in absolutely insignifi
cant places. Thus, it may pass Loa An
geles and settle down in Whittier. It
may shoot clear over the head of San
Francisco and concentrate itself in a
nimbus over the head of Palo Alto. We
were told for now these many years that
the great Leland Stanford Jr. university
wae to be a prodigious benefaction to ita
students. In every reference to thia
great donation it waa intimated that the
ex-governor was loading a great burden
of obligations on the community, and
the young people thereof. From all we
could learn to the contrary, while the
great benefaction (?) was under way,
the boss dedication of wealth recorded
since the world began was wrapt up in
thie Laland Stanford Jr. university
After all this fanfare and multitudin
ous clattor-daah and prologomena, we
find that it costs a student in tbe
Stanford University just $22 a month to
enjoy the benefits of that institution.
By paying this sum he is able to listen
to a number of professors discoursing
upon recondite topics. He will even
have the supreme delight of hearing ex-
Fresident Hayes maunder about inter
national law, and meander through
platitudes respecting law in general.
But for this $22 a month the aspiring
student could enjoy the privilege oi
wandering through the learned shades
of Yale or Harvard. We are asked to
ehed incense where no provision has
beer, made for a gratuitous distribu
tion of myrrh and frankincense,
and where we are expected to be the
censer ewingers ourselves. We are half
inclined to think that Governor Stan
ford, who lived on flattery all his life,
had really made a cunning provision, to

aink into the gaave witb all the home of
praiae sonnding hia name under a mis
apprehension. He certainly got full
credit for intention, tbat seem to nave
been indifferently performed. Hia will
discloses no adequate performance ot
the bombastic programme that bad
been heralded throughout the whole
world. If tbe beat that Palo Alto can
do ia to enable a young man to avail
himself of ita advantages at $22 a month,
then we think that aspiring person
would improve hia condition by hunting
np some of the older aeata of learning,
where tradition and association will do
much to aaeiat him in assimilating the
graces of a thorough edcuation.
ttßnt if $22 a month ia a large anm to
pay for enjoying the privileges of the
I.eland Stanford, Jr., University—ia
there no method by which that awful
junior may be eliminated from tho
title of ths university ?—what are we to
think of the monumental cheek of the
controllers of the Whittier so-called Re
form School ? Here we have a state in
atitution that haa been built and ia
maintained by the commonwealth of
California. It is dedicated to the recep
tion of incorrigible yonth of both sexes,
who have been too lively and vicioue to
submit to parental authority or to re
apect the laws of the state of California.
It would naturally be supposed that
there would be something both of the
correctional and punitive in auch an in
stitution. What will be the surprise of
level-headed people when tbey learn
that, under a Chadband administration
of affairs in California, the "cadet"—in
other words, the youthful criminal—ia
made to cost the state and county $25 a
month, or $300 a yearl
Wbo ia the beneficiary of thia un
speakable joke, and to what extent is be
the beneficiary ? The whole proposition
iB certainly too too. It looks like an
enginery of humor that ia liable to ex
plode with disastrous consequences. But
there is nothing like synchronousness in
funny things. Dr. Walter Lindley runs
the Whittier Reform School, while "Al"
Lindley rune the Loa Angelea Baae Ball
team. What more natural than that tbe
"cadets" should be run in on notable
festival days, like tbe 4th of July, to
swell the concourse at onr national game,
and lend a little t'clat to Brother Al!
Tbere is Baid to be a power sitting up
aloft tbat looks oat for poor Jack. How
ever that may be there ia a power some
where tbat looks out for the Lindley
family. With no mightier pundit than
Dr. Walter himself to instruct or en
lighten them, the tuition and mainten
ance of (he "cadet" costa like blazes.
And don't you forget it!
There is alwaya a large amount of
material lying around in Paria ready for
fomentation. The riots of the students
from the Quartier Latin at one time as
sumed aerioua proportions. But the
madcapa, after making a very spirited
and ferocious campaign againat the
police, simmered down. Now, however,
it seems that the working clasaes have
taken up the quarrel where the students
left off, and there ia a feeling of great
unrest in the ebullient capital. Some
dispatches ascribe thia new phase of the
nnquietnesa to Boulangism. But thia
is, H not without warrant, altogether
unnecessary. The Faubourgs can be
roused to "mutiny" at any time, and
almost on any pretext. Yet it would be
difficult at the present time to ascribe a
pretext grave enough to arouse the aver
age Parisian, outside of the chronic in
flammables, into disturbances that
would rise to the dignity of a revolution.
There is a great deal of calm conserva
tism juet now in the average French
man. He knows very well tbat his
country wants to hold herself together
for mightier purposes than local quar
rels. The great middle claßß of Paris
are too patriotic to waste their energies
in etreet tumults.
Tin: fearful cyclonea and hailstorms
that have passed over a portion of lon a
have again called general attention to
the frequency witb which these terrible
meteorological cataatrophea visit the
northwestern etatea. In this instance
the cyclonea were attended with great
loss of life and destruction of property.
One frontier town wae nearly wiped out,
and seventy Uvea are known to have
been loet at laat accounts. So serious
waa the visitation there that Governor
Boies considered it bia duty to inspect
in person the effects of the disastrous
storm before calling upon the people
elsewhere to come to the relief of the
victims. It is an ungracious act to draw
comparisons between eections of the
country subject to these fearful visita
tions and to those that are happily free
from tbem; but people living on thia
coast should be thankful that their lota
are caat in a part of the country
where auch terrible experiences are un

Washington, July 7. —The treasury

today, buying 100,000 ounces at 72
cents. The offera aggregated 2,780,000
ounces at the same price as that paid,
but only 100,000 onncee were taken. The
reason given for limiting the purchase iB
that it ia believed at the treasury that

Frit let me say tbat I deeire to enter
into no controversy on thia queation
which haa to agitated the Christian
world, neither wonld I consent to do so,
and thia will be the last on this subject
from my pen.
The action of tbe general assembly in
deposing Brigga from the ministry of
the Presbyterian chnrch was not, aa
many think, because of hie peculiar the
ological viewa per ac, but because thoae
views, and hia advocacy of them, were
not in accordance with hia ordination
vows awl covenants, made and entered
into with the Presbyterian church. He
was bound by hia eccleaiaatical position
to teach and enforce the faith and tenets
of the church which he repreaented; but
instead of doing thia in all good faith, he
assumed to be a law and doctrine nnto
himaelf, and to teach and advocate prin
ciples contrary to the spirit and letter of
Tbat Professor Brigga was not a Pres
byterian haa long been well known; hia
utterances on various occasions giving
abundant proof of thia fact, but it re
mained for hie historical inaugural ad
dress to culminate Christian sentiment
and bring it to a point where it could
find expression only, aa it did, in the
action of the late general assembly.
Hia personal right to believe what he
pleases ia not denied him, and it ia also
hia privilege to believe (ac he has inti
mated in hia utterances) that the Pres
byterian church ie derelict in that it
doea not forego its most cheriahed tenete
and offer itself for absorption to the
Episcopal chuicb; and it ia also hia
right to believe it hie duty to work for
the organic union of all churches; but
it ia rightfully denied him to do and
teach theae things aa a Preebyterian
minister. Had the general aaaembly
upheld him in the courae he waa pursu
ing, it would have been no ieaa than a
tacit adoption of thia same courae and
belief by the whole chnrch. Then, in
deed, might it be consistently eaid,

Much is being eaid about Professor
Brigga' great scholarship and that he ia
a "Godly man." It ie not necessary for
hia friends to beg these questions, aa
th i.o facta have not been disputed,
but it is well to remember
that the most Godly men are liable to
grievous error, and also that wisdom
will not die with Profeasor Brigga. And
what of it if he ie a Godly man? Are
there not thousands of li idly, acholarly
clergymen who are not, and cannot be,
Presbyterians? They are in their proper
places, ' and the Presbyterian, church
bids them God-speed. Godliness in any
minister is not only good, but indis
pensable; but the Preebyterian church
requireß, in addition to this, certain con
ditions which bring the ministers into
harmony witb tbe faith and ethics of
that body. Professor Btiggs is not
merely a preacher; be is a teacher of
preachers, thus having it in bia power
to disseminate his un-Preebyterian
views to the greatest detriment of the
church which he repreaented, and a wail
is raised becunee, forsooth, hia misdo
ings are cut short.
It is truly unfortunate and unwise to
employ unwarranted epithets id refer
ence to tbe assembly and its action, and
the terms "silurian, odious, odorous,
intolerant and indefensible action, ridi
culous and auperliuons deliverances, ita
evident purpose to override, to throttle
human reason," etc., eound like the
vagaries of an unbalanced mind.
It ia wholly superfluous for W. 0.
Patterson to suggest that the members
of Immanuel church follow the advice
of Professor Briggs, etc. We neither
owe allegiance to that deposed gentle
man nor look to him for advice.

SMASHING A WILL.
A QOARBEL OVIB TBS KSTATK OF
CHAKXBS B. IiAKOTOBD.
The Ohildren or the Dead Man's Firat
WMe Commeitee a Contest of Bia
Testament, Alleging- Un
Quite a lively conteat haa arlaeu over
the disposition of the estate of Charles
E. Langford, an aged citizen of Pasa
dena, who died in that city Jnne 12th,
leaving an estate the estimate value of
which ia about $75,000.
He left a widow, Mrs. Maria M.
Langford, aged 40 yeara, who waa hia
eecond wife, and five ohildren by a
former wife. After Mr. Langford'a
death a will wae fonnd in hie cafe de-

ia aole executrix. In the body of tbe
will, which ia dated November 29,1887,

his wife's death, the estate ehall go to

In the will tbe children of hia firat
wife are left $1000 each, and they have
decided to contest the legality of the
document. The conteat waa filed July

Herwick and Elizabeth Longshore, two
of the children.
They ask tbat the will filed by Mra.
Langford for probate a few days, after
the death of the testator be not admitted
to probate, and attack It on various
grounds. The uanal contention ia made
that the deoeaaed at the time he made
the will and particularly the codicil,
wae not of sound mind; that he waa
aged and feeble and wae unduly influ
enced by hia wife to leave the contest
ants out from a ebare of the property,
and did not understand what he waß
But the principal point upon which
the contestants baae their claim that the
document ia illegal, is tbat it waa never
signed. Thie claim ia made and the
trial of the issue will reault in a warm
The property mentioned in tbe will
