PREPARING FOR LEGISLATION.
"We will take it as an axiom thai the least
Legislation there is, beyond the line of ab
solute necessity, the better for the people.
Herbert Spencer, in _ recent essay, de
clares ii.it we measure the responsibilities
of legislators for mischiefs they may do, in
a far more lenient fashion than we do the
mistake ofthe druggist's assistant who pre
scribes for the colic, when the ailment is
inflammation of the ca*cum, and so kills
the patient. "It is held that common ex
perience should bare taught the druggist's
assistant, untrained as he is, not to inter
fere; but it is not held that common expe
rience should teach the legislator not to
interfere till he has trained himself."
mi , ***' - — ~' •**-
There can be no question that immense
evils result from wrong legislative treat
ment. I' is undeniable that we legislate
too much. The average* legislator is in
spire.', with -the ideal thai lie is bound to
introduce bills on every conceivable subject
concerning which there i- some friction,
Legislation i- looked upon as the great
cure-all, when in fact much legislation is
the great mischief-maker.
We applaud .he modes' report of an up
country Assemblyman to his constituency :
"I introduced not one bill, lout I 'voted
against four hundred and twenty-otic."
That man had some conception of the re
sponsibility of his office.
It is true, as Spencer declares, that the
mischiefs wrought by uninsiructed law
making aro enormous in amount, and con
gpicious to all who do but glance over its
history. Front the varying enactments re
garding usury laws, the decrease of poverty,
the lessening of labor, the regulating of
private concerns, to enact morals, to fix
wages, and to interfere with trade, down to
the mild demand of the Socialist - and the
nltra-democratic efforts of the Communists,
the history of the world teems with proofs
that the labors of uninstrucied legislators
" have continually increased human suffer
ing in the endeavor to mitigate it."
We may not now further continue this
politico-philosophical strain, for we have
no bop.- that anj speedy reform is to be
accomplished, such as selecting for our
legislative bodies with th.- same care we
exercise in chosing agents to conduct our
private business. But there is, even under
the present bad and faulty system of
legislation, opportunity to introduce some
reforms.
A marked advance step would Ix to
shorten legislative sessions. There would
bono real economy in accomplishing this
if we did not secure, as a result, better
legislation. A brief session would be profit
less this winter if it was the fruit of hasty
and ill considered " Acts." We realize
fully the importance of deliberation, and
of committee labor, precisely as we appre
ciate, at their true low value, the debates
from the floor of the houses Heal legisla
tion is done, not in open session, but in
quiet councils and the chambers of com
mittees.
Now Suppose the chief State Central
Committee of the dominant party, and
which party is to lie held to strict respon
sibility for the legislation of IS, S3, should
call together from prominent citizens, from
among legislators if possible, a lawyer or
two, an eminent agriculturist or two, two
or more representative mechanics, two or
more representative business men, and re
cpicst them ■" consider what legislation is
actually needed for the welfare ol the l"-'i
ple, and to prepare, in roc at least, meas
ures to be submitted to the houses. These
WOUld ':■! to the pre-. 1.,- discussed
throughout tin* Slate for a month,
aid, when the Legislature meets, it
Will be very fully informed upon the chief
topics to come before it, and very well in
structed regarding the opinions of the peo
ple. It Would be possible for till- matters
so discussed to be taken hold of with vigor
anil promptness, and the session wound up
satisfactorily in thirty days.
Appealing to purely selfish motives, it
needs no elaboration to demonstrate to ti..*
presumably sagacious managers of the
party tint they could not better set about
to popularize their party than by securing
a short session, and by choking off all su
perfluous bills. It will be bad for the party
if, with the opportunity now before it, it
permits the houses to In- flooded by seven
or eight hundred bills, and really vital
measures to be drowned in a torrent of
rubbish. The Democracy pot such a load
-upon its Assembly an.l Senate files at the
last regular session that the weight ■_. proved
a clog to its heels, and at the late eleotion
it fell into the ditch of the people's rebuke.
Let the Republican majority make no
such blunder. Let it strive to legislate the
least, and during the least number of days,
and deserve the title of the session of few
hours and fewer bills." In truth there is
very little need for legislation this winter.
Beyond the adjustment of laws under the
amendments adopted on the 4th inst., the
consideration of the irrigation problem,
which is to be forced upon the houses, and
examination ofthe department reports and
such legislation as may be needed for the
more effectual work of the State officials,
there arc no important measures to be con
sidered. If.it is permitted, however, sev
eral hundred will be hatched out by ambi
tious members who mistake bill and speech
making for legislative ability and deserving
industry.
There is reason to belive that some day
we shall attain to a plane of excellence, on
which a constitutional commission will
prepare and digest in advance the work to
be suggested to the Legislature. In the
absence of such a lawful body, it is within
the power of voluntary effort to prove the
usefulness of such a legislative aid.
Some years ago a Governor of California
appointed a commission of eminent law
yers to prepare the bills necessary for the
Legislature to pass in order to adjust the
old system of laws to the New Constitution.
That body had no legal existence. Yet its
labors were of vast usefulness to the Legis
islature, and its suggestions were very
largely adopted into the Code. Obviously
such extrinsic aids to legislation are most
likely to act in a judicial frame, to be unin
fluenced politically, to be free from the
pressure of personal ambition and the traps
and contrivances ofa vicious lobby.
It should be, and it is possible by some
such means as those suggested, to get the
leading measures before the people, and
have them digested and prepared for the
Legislature some considerable time prior to
its assembling.
Whatever scheme is adopted with that
end in view will conserve the best interests
of the people. If the Republican managers
have the political sagacity to map out legis
lation that is wise, and will have the ap
proval ofthe people, and to so digest it that
it may be accomplished in a thirty days'
session of the Legislature, it will bind the
people to the party 'is with hooks of steel.
DISTINCTIONS.
A vicious game that appears not to fall
under the ban of the law is played openly
throughout the State, and is doing incalcu
lable damage. It i- a percentage game, and
if a given number of young men, each with
a given sum in hand, sit down to it. the
dealer is as certain to "rake in" the aggre
gate of all the Sinus, if the youths but stick
to the game, as that the sun will rise. Some',
lime ago, when we alleged that the lawful
games, at least those winked at and per
mitted, and largely openly played, are more
damaging and vicious than faro or the un
lawful banking games, some friends depre
cated tin* expression and challenged its
correctness. These good people* simply
lacked knowledge of the world. They
simply avoided the fact that there is such a
thing as degree in evil. We reaffirm that
the poker games, the dice games, the ordi
nary card games, in saloons, cigar stands,
in country bar-rooms and elsewhere, and
the charity ball ami church fair gambling
games, are fourfold more damaging to the
young than ilic regular outlawed banking
games. Any man of the world knows this
to lie true. Here, then, is society permit
ting a greater and condemning a
lesser evil. There is no escape from
this. What we need to do is
put then) all upon one* or the nth..!- of two
levels, '■" :; toleration, or undiscriminating
condemnation. Of course the latter is the
only thinkable course. If there is no law
to reach the. vicious ".stud-horse poker"
gainer-, in the name of decency, if not ill
the nameofthe youth of the country, let
our city legislature pass an ordinance to
meet the case fully. We should not pour
on oil behind lie grate and water in front.
Let it be ail water or all oil. We must not
smile upon the fair lottery and stud-horse
poker, and frown upon faro and roulette.
Lei it be frowns and blows for all. We
respect the honorable gambler and despise
the low trickster who bleeds boys and
young at lawful (?) percentage games.
For the first holds himself superior and he
has every reason to V" .-" : he makes no
pretense that hois '.:!,.■:■ than he is, and for
that reason, if none oilier, is entitled to be
rated, nd his business to be esteemed be
fore that of the keeper of bouses where* a
semblance of respectability i- maintained,
and the meanest kind of gambling carried
on.
It — ms strange to the people of Cali
fornia, in which Slate the ballots cast at
elections are scaled up and preserved, that
in New York the- ballots should be de
stroyed as soon as ;be Board of Election
Commissioners counts them an I certifies to
their number. Probably there is but little
more danger of fraud under the New York
practice than ours. In New York the re
turns inly need to be altered to accomplish
fraud ; here the ballots also must be doc
tored. Whoever would attempt tin* alter
ation of returns would likewise tamper
with the ballots. The New York law con
stitutes the election officers the judge's of
the legality of the ballots, and requires
them i" make a record of those they reject
With a statement of their reasons. The
correctness of their decision is subject to
review by the Courts. It would appear to
us that the* system is not so safe a- our
own, which requires preservation of the
ballots, and does not constitute the record
of the* Election Inspectors the sole record.
A Democratic jollification mass meeting
on Monday in the far South has passed
resolutions deprecating the solidity of' the
solid South," or of any other section, and
praying for the day when all citizens, black
and whits', foreign and native-born, at
home ami abroad, shall be equal before the
law, and be protected equally by the flag.
Finally the meeting resolved that it prays
for a Union of the States a Union "'as it
was eighty years ago." That meeting began
well, but it ended badly. What is the mat
ter with the I nion as it is? Why wish the
Union as it was, when slavery was one of
it. institutions? So, to : are not all citizens
equal before the law now? If in fact that
equality is denied them, where is it and
whose fault is it? It the flag d".*> not pro
tect all alike now. where is the feted spot,
and whose fault is it . Taffy.' tally' Tin*
Democrat of the South is a better baud at
ball-dozing than taffy-pulling.
Tiik Current .-: " The father reads the
newspaper on his way down town in the
street cars : the mother sews on dark goods
until late at night; the child wears specta
cles in the grammar school." Very true.
The Current might have extended its in
dictment by these counts: We sit facing
the light when at work ; we cultivate near
sightedness in the schools by inadequate
lighting, bad desks, poor print and per
mitting bad habits of position. We injure
the eyes by the undue use of the opera
glass; we read in bed by an insufficient
light and in an improper position ; we
struggle over the morning paper in the dim
gray of early light. In short, we are becom
ing a spectacled nation, We not only con
duct ourselves so as to pass defective eye
sight down to our children, but wo permit
them to injure even that they have.
HOME AND ABROAD.

. DOMESTIC NEWS.
Fresh Consignment of Mormons.
New York, November 12th.— One hun
dred and sixty-four Mormons arrived here
yesterday, being the last consignment this
year. Most of them are from the British
Isles. Chief Elder Smith is rather discour
aged at the poor crop.
One of the Mormons, a shy English girl
named Cook, declined to accompany the
Mormons any further upon arriving here.
She said : " 1 was led by curiosity to attend
the Mormon missionary meeting. The
elder said he knew my mother in America,
and she had told him she wanted me to
come out and join her. Then he showed
me a letter which he said had been written
by her to him and let me read that part of
the paper on which something was written
about bringing her daughter back with
him. The Mormons told us that we young
women folks would all get married to good
husbands and be sure of happy and pros
perous lives when we got out to Utah. The
elder said it was a fertile country, with a
religious government, and that everything
was nice and home-like. I believed what
he said, and when the ship sailed I was one
of tbe several score of women who made
up the company that went on board. I
I don't believe it is true at all now."
" Don't you want to go to Utah, then
Mr. Gildea asked.
"'Oh, no!" said the girl; "but I can't
help myself now.''
" Well, you shan't go if you don't want
to," said Gildea ; " I'll stop it."
*' Don't tell the elders, though," the emi
grant said ; '■ they'd keep me down there in
the steerage all the time."
Gildea said that he watched the elders
after the interview before acting. There
were half a dozen of tbem on boaiff, and
they lived liked nabobs. They drank
champagne constantly in the cabin, and
would play cards for money with anybody
who would join in. Gildea says that be
and other passengers saw them go among
the young women in their company and
display photographs of good-looking Mor
mons, telling them that the originals would
marry them as soon as they got to Utah.
Gildea spoke to a dozen Americans and
Irishmen about Miss Cook, and said he had
resolved to rescue tlie girl from the elders.
Other passengers acquiesced in the scheme,
and yesterday morning they went in a
group to the elders, who were standing
near the steerage, and demanded that the
girl be allowed to follow her own wish and
In* released from any agreement she might
have made.
You mind your own business," said
one of the elders; "the girl is one of our
party."
One of the passengers pushed forward
and grabbed Miss (.'..ok and drew her
away. Instantly there was a tussle, and
one of the elders was knocked flat on the
deck. An angry Irishman in the melee
shouted imprecations at the elders, and
threatened to lay them all out if they
touched the girl again. The Mormons
finally drew back and let a Brooklyn man
lead the girl to a cabin. Miss Cook hail
about $50 in English money.
Germany and the Pork Question.
Washington, November 12th.— J. 11.
Saunders, agent of the United States De
partment of Agriculture, to attend the In
's temational Exhibition at Hamburg, in his
report recently submitted to the Commis
sioner of Agriculture, says : So far as I
could learn it is generally conceded that
whenever an inspection of our pork is
made under careful governmental super
vision, similar to that now made by the
German authorities, there will be no ob
jection to its sale in Germany; that were
there such an inspection there would be
such a strong pressure brought to bear
upon the German Government by its own
people that the embargo would be speedily
removed. Should further experiments con
firm what has been already partially shown,
that thorough curing in salt destroys the
vitality of trichina?, if not entirely at least
to so great a degree as to reduce the* danger
from meats that have been thoroughly
cured by this process to almost nothing, ii
will doubtless be a strong point in our
favor, and a proper presentation of the facts
to the German Government, should this be
clearly proven, ought at once to be made.
Until this fact is clearly established, how
ever, and in the absence of any pretense of
the inspection of American meats, cither
under the Government or the individual
supervision of persons, the German Gov
ernment is obviously sound upon this ques
tion, and cannot be assailed without it Sirs!
being demonstrated that their own inspec
tion is useless.
111- Treatment of Christian, in China.
New York, November 12th.— Accounts
of the Chinese massacre of Christians, re
ceived via San Francisco, creates a wide
spread feeling in Eastern religious com
munities, and measures will be taken to
elicit an expression of feeling from the
people stimulating the Government to ac
tion that will not only prevent outrages in
future, but compel the Pekin authorities to
make indemnity for losses already sus
tained. The clergy of the leading denomi
nations are in favor of a movement, and a
call for a public meeting is talked of by the
highest dignitaries of the Roman Catholic
and Episcopal Churches. A similar dem
onstration is spoken of in Brooklyn.
Beecher and Tannage cordially favor it." V
Maud S.s Time.
New York, November I2th. — Robert
Bonner telegraphed to D.A.Bonner yes
terday thai Maud 8., as timed by himself,
made the mile in two minutes and nine
seconds, even. His son said : Father is a
careful timer, and seldom makes a horse's
lime faster than other timers, especially
when one of his own horses is trotting. 1
believe the mare can make a mile in 2:07':,
or better, with everything favorable. Bair,
the driver, thinks the same."
Victoria -lorosiiii'. Engagement.
New York, November 12th. — Manager
Amberg, of the Thalia Theater, -aid last
evening, regarding Victoria Hulskenip:
" She came to rue with a recommendation
from two prominent citizens. J engaged
her upon her actual merits, without a
thought of her past notoriety. She has a
beautiful voice, and needs but little train
ing to meet with success. Ido not know
when I .-hall bring her out."
Patti makes a Purchase.
New York, November 12th. — Mine. Patti
bought a billiard table yesterday. It was
made for exhibition purposes and took the
gold medal at Chicago. The price put upon
it was $2,300, but the* diva obtained it for
$1,300. A dozen kinds of wood arc used in
its construction. It is inlaid with pearl
an.l bronze and particularly rich in me
dallions. Patti plays a fair game of bill
iards, and Nic-olini would be considered
strong among amateurs. The tabic is to
be shipped to Patti's castle in Wales.
An Opium Smoker.
New York, November 12th. — Ada Nerise,
aged sixteen, arrested Monday night in an
opium joint, stood in Court yesterday with
her mother, a richly-dressed lady, who
said Ada became addicted to the drug three
years ago. and ever since has been a fre
quenter Of the Chinese dens of Mott street.
The girl .was pretty but deadly pale from
tin* use of the drug. She had been under
its influence three or four weeks. As she
could not be committed to any institution
she returned home with her mother.
High.'-.! Structure in Una World.
Washington*, November l-tli. — The
Washington monument to-day reached a
greater bight than thai of any "structure in
the world, being 520 feet and 10 inches
above the iloor of the monument. The
next highest structure is the Spire of the
Cologne cathedral; which towers 515 feel
above the floor of the building. It is esti
mated that it will take but twenty-five
working days to complete the monument,
so there is no doubt of its being finished in
time for its dedication on the 22.1 of
February.
The Case of I'lirns-lde.
Washington", November 12th. J. 0. P.
Burnside, ex-Disbursing Officer of the
Postoffice Department, was indicted by the
Grand Jury of this district this fall for em
bezzlement of public funds to the amount
of over $50,000. His bondsmen were liable
for the amount of the defalcation, and the
evidence of his guilt was overwhelming.
Today a remarkable phase of Colonel
Burnside's affairs was developed. An ap
plication was made to the District Attorney
to send Burnside to the insane asylum.
Two reputable physic: certified as to
his insanity, as also Bishop-elect l'aret. of
the - Methodist Episcopal Church, whose
son married Burnside's daughter. It is
claimed; that Burnside has acted very
quecrly. and that his conversation i. go
confused, and his manner so strange that
his family, and friends intimate with him,
have been led to believe that his mind is
unsettled. The District Attorney suggested
to the parties presenting the papers that in |
cases charged with crime the law provides
that the Court shall certify to the insanity
of the prisoner to the "Secretary of the
Interior, whose duty it will be to order his
commitment to the Asylum. The District
Attorney thinks that "the best course to

regular course be followed. No decision in
this singular case has been arrived at.

'conditions of mind till they, too, come to
be habits of thinking and even of feeling.
Every thoughtful parent or teacher recog
nizes this in the- training of youth. The
child constantly thwarted or scolded or
ridiculed has constantly aroused within
him feelings of resentment or discourage
ment or misery, and these grow to be hab
itual, and a character for ill-temper or no
roseness or despondency is formed. On the
other band, the child who is wisely treated,
whose faculties are brought into action,
who is encouraged to do well, who is sur
rounded with cheerful faces and orderly
arrangements, becomes accustomed to cor
responding habits of thought and feeling.
The exercise of self-control, of truthfulness,
of honesty, and other essential qualities,
not only result in habitual actions of the
same nature, but in habitual feelings or
states of mind tliat induce those actions.
So the condition which we call happiness
is likewise acquired to a considerable de
gree. It involves within it many things,
but they are not impossible to secure, and
when we have discovered them it rests
with us to encourage or to discourage
them. Happiness is not only a privilege,
but a duty, not a mere outward good that
may perhaps come to us, but an inward
possession which we arc bound to attain.
When we remember the contagious charac
ter of happiness, the strength, courage and
hope it excites by its very presence and
the power for good it exerts in every direc
tion, we cannot doubt our obligation to tit
tain as much of it as is possible.—[Phila
delphia Ledger.
Effect of Pressure on Life.
M. Rcgnard, a French physiologist, has
made some very interesting experiments
on the effects on life of a high water pres
sure. The experiments were carried out
by means ofa water-press of MM. Cailletet
and Due-retet, giving a pressure of 1,000
atmospheres that is to say, such a press
ure as would exist at a point 10,000 meters
below the surface of the sea. . ~V
Yeast subjected to this pressure for an
hour fell into a state of sleep or latent life,
and on being withdrawn from the press it
was only after an hoar that active life re
turned and tin* yeast operated as a ferment.
Vegetable alga* and seeds of the garden
cress also fell into sleep, and only recov
ered slowly. The same may be" said of
leeches at a pressure of COO atmospheres,
mollusks and infusoria. The I. lies, in
deed, only awoke some- hours afterward.
. Fishes deprived of their swimming-blad
ders were submitted to a pressure of; 100
atmospheres with impunity; at -Jot) anno—
hires they fell into the same sleepy state,
but quickly recovered ; at 300 atmospheres
they died ; at -100 they became rigid, and
remained so even when putrefaction set in.
This rigidity was accompanied by increase
of weight, as was proved by fixing and
weighing the limbs of frogs.
The climate of Montana i. said to be
changing. Formerly the summers were
cool, with cold night.*, and winter set in as
early as October, with late springs. Now
they have warm nights in summer, late
falls and early springs.

Attempted Suicide — Temperance
Cause.
Vallejo, November 12th. — Peter Peter
sen, a Dane. 38 years old, cut his throat last
night at the Astor House. If* was recently
night watchman at 907 Kearny street, San
Francisco, and came to Vallejo a few .'.ays
ago in search of his wife, whose maiden
name was Annie Butler, and who married
him in San Francisco in 1880. He found
her living with a barber named A. Fabiascn.
They ran off to San Francisco yesterday.
He is not expected to live, and was removal
to the County Hospital this morning.
Several members of the Good Templars
at the last meeting withdrew from the
lodge. Other resignations are expected,
The cause is extreme dissatisfaction with
the Temperance party mixing in national
politics, and a belief that the Prohibition
ticket defeated the Republican candidate.
There is freely expressed here an opinion
that the temperance cause has been seri
ously damaged in the State*.

Worse Than a Camfaiox Kazoo.—
For discordancy the concert of the Chinese
band which came over jto London to the
Exhibition puts Wagner quite into : the
shade.;. First one hears wild shrieks, then
the thrummings ; and throbbing* as of a
thousand negro minstrels, changing to an
army of bagpipes, the squealing of mal
treated babies, the whistling of locomotives,
the foe horns of a steamer, the clashing of
cymbals, the beating of drums. There is
a vast assortment of Chinese* musical
instruments, ; from the two-stringed fid
dle to the great horn. There are three
sorts of guitars — the hepa, balloon
shaped, three feet in length and much
used for festal rites of a religious charac
ter ; then comes the sanhecn, en* three
stringed guitar, and the full-moon guitar
gue kich. Then come drums, cymbals.
