Atitft-lc* Tirtifi h;iH much to uay,
From an editorial in thai p.ip«*r Ytc
lake the following extract*:
Southern California in to have an*
other railroad* It tuu%t not l>e infer*
red that the track* have already been
laid, or the rolling *tock purcha*ed,
hut, according to a dinpatch front San
Diego, a ma ••meeting of the citizen*
ha* been held in the Chaml>er of Com
merce there, and an Kxecutivc Com-
Itlittec of seven leading citizen* ap
(Miinted "to make Ntirvey*, ac<|tiir«*
franchi«e» and righta of way, and to
obtain *üb*criptiouH for the con*truc
tion of a railroad from San Diego to
the Colorado river, and ultimately to
penetrate Southern Arizona."
This, it i* true, i* not quite equiv
alent to the opening of the line to
traffic, but it certainly marks a con
siderable and praiseworthy advance
over the stage of editorial utterances
in the Union and mysterious hints
from Mr. Carlson, which have hitherto
marked the history of the San Diego
and Elsewhere railroad.
In any case, The Times hasten* to
extend its congratulations on this im
portant forward move, and to assure
them that, in spite of the sometimes
not altogether complimentary remark*
that have been made by the San
Dicgansabbut our "harbor swindle,"
we do not bear them any malice, but
shall be pleased to see this new road
carrying coals to Newcastle at an ear
ly date. The more roads the merrier.
Having two transcontinental lines of
our own now building we cannot af
ford to !>e small about this thing.
Perhaps we might even arrange to
lend the committee our city chain
TWENTY-FOURTH STATE
On August 10 Missouri will
complete her eightieth year of
statehood. There will be joyful'
doings in Kansas City in honor of
the anniversary. When Missouri
was admitted in 1821, the state
of main was a year old; Michigan,
Wisconsin, and twenty more of
the present states were not yet of
the family; some of them were
almost unknown wildernesses.
The struggle in congress over
the admission of Missouri shook
the union.
Missouri will have the congrat
ulations and good wishes of all
her sister states on her eightieth
birthday. May she livelong and
prosper. We rebuke the frivol
ous persons who make jokes about
Pike county and call the Missou
rians "turtlebacks." They ought
to learn better manners.
ANSWERING THE QUESTION
The, Rev. John MeNeill was holding
a revival service at Cardiff, Wales the
other day. and announced that he
would answer any question about the
Dible. At once a note was sent up to
him, reading as follows:
"Dear Mr. McNcill, if you are seek
ing to help young men, kindly tell me "
who wan Cains wife."
That seemed a poser, and the audi
ence waited with intense interest, tem
pered with amusement, to sec how*the
K«hkl man would extricate himself.
After a pause, he said:
"I love young men especially young
inquirers for light, and I would give
this young man a word of advice. It
is this: Don't lose your soul's salva
tion looking after other men* wive*."
