The Projected Canal.
On la-t Monday the preliminary ex
amination for tin* canal, projected by
tho gentlemen composing the Los An
gelea and San Bernardino Land Asso
ciation waa completed, Starting from
a point in the Santa Annacafion about
twelve and one-half miles northeast
from Anaheim, where the river ia con
fined between high banks, the line
passes along the face ofthe hills on
tin'northern bank of the Santa Anna
river, to the commencement of the
mesa lands of the Yorba rancho,
thence in a northwesterly direction
over the mesa to the rancho La Habra.
It lias demonstrated by the survey tbat
not only is it practicable to irrigate all
the lands, contained in the lands con
tained in tbe large plains, lying south
of the Puente bills, but also that tbe
ditch can be continued across the di
vide into the valley of La Habra, sup
plying to the moet beautiful valley in
Southern California the only requisite
lo render it perfect. It has also been
demonstrated tbat no serious physical
difficulties oppose the construction of
the canal, and that the cost will fall
materially short of what was at first
supposed.
The benefits, which will accrue to
our community! by the completion of
this work, arc almost incalculable. Its
presence will be beneficially felt, not
only by the farmer, who for so long a
time bus struggled almost against
hope, but by the artisan and mer
chant as well. Mew life w ill be Infus
ed into our section, confidence in our
capabilities for acquiring and accumu
lating wealth w ill be restored, and an
impetus will be given to the immigra
tion, winch has already learned our
inherent resources, and which only
awaits their development. Iv almost
every outer portion of California con
taining agricultural lands, the ques
tion is, not how to conduct water over
the irrigable lands, but how to ob
tain it.
The Santa Ana river is the only
stream in which the flow of water is
sufficiently great during the whole
year to supply the demand. Hereto
fore It has been impossible on account
of a want of money to utilize this
wealth-producing power; but now that
the matter has|been|takeu in hand by
gentlemen, possessing the most ample
means, there is no question but that
the work will be prosecuted and vigor
ously, to a successful conclusion. Al
though the inception of this work has
been directly caused by an apprecia
tion, on the part of the members of
tbe Land Association, of the many
and valuable benefits, resulting to
them from its construction, and the
serious damage to the finances of the
Company Without it, still it must be
acknowledged that to the untiring and
disinterested efforts of their agent,
W r . R. Olden, to convince them of the
necessity of the undertaking, the
community is undoubtedly indebted
for the commencement of actual work.
With his characteristic energy, he has
talked -'ditch" to them, until they
were Compelled perforce to listen to
them, and In the face of the most su
preme Indifference to their own pe
cuniary interests, he succeeded in con
vincing them, not only of the im
portance, but of the actual necessity
of the construction of an irrigating
medium. If the canal is constructed,
therefore- and knowing tlie character
of the men at its bead, we do not hesi
tate to assert that it may be consider
ed unfait accompli —It is to him that
all credit should be given for the
thousandfold Increase to our popula
tion, wealth, antl Individual aud gen
eral prosperity, which will surely fol
low its completion,—[Southern Cali

Liability of Landlords. —The
Detroit J'oxt of a recent date, had the
billowing item of interest to hotel
keepers: " The case of Henry Colgate
against Luther Beecher was tried In
tfie Superior Court yesterday, and re
sulted In a verdict for the plaintiff' for
ihe full amount claimed, some $000.
In June last Colgate, who was a travle
jug agent for a New York firm, was a
guest at the Riddle House, of which
Luther Beecher was the keeper. On
the night of the l"th of that month
he retired ut about 11 o'clock, placing
his vest, in the pocket of which were
S2OO in money, antl a watch worth
about $400, on a table by bis bed. The
night was warm, and the transom over
the door was left open for the purpose
of ventilation. During the night some
thief entered the room through the
transom, or succeeded through that
opening, as it is supposed, in getting
hold of the vest in some manner, and
walked off with ,it and all Its con
tents, which have not since been seen.
The Court held the Inn-keeper liable
for the robbery of his guest, aud the
jury returned a verdict for the full
amount stolen. The defense sought to
prove that the hotel provided a safe
fog valuables, and that notice was giv
en OB the hotel register anil bills of
fare, that the landlord would not be
responsible for valuables not deposited
in the safe, and a nice question arose
whether the valuables of which tlie
plaintiff was robbed were such as
ought properly to have been deposited
in the safej'

Women in Cities.
One of the powerful features in
separable from ntetropolitan life is
tbe degradation of w omen. I do not re
fer here to anything of a vicious na
ture, but simply to the results of ex
treme poverty. Women sutlers lv re
from dire want much more tbau man,
bec&USe his strength and general re
sources are superior. You sec the
most pitiable women here, because
the sex is forced to unfeminlne em
ployment. Sonic might be uniuseil
by tbe facile exercise of the grass book
or sickle wtth which this class cut
fodder for their cows and goals, since
they do it with great rapidity. I have
seen it in the vacant uptown lots,
where, if the labor was worth any
thing, the sttM'k of weeds thus gather
ed ought to be worth one hundred
dollars a ton. Coming down tow n
lately I saw tt woman carrying coal
from tbe sidewalk up stairs iv pails.
She bad been lucky enough to get a
loud of this article, and was thus stor
ing it iv her room in the tenement
house. You see women carrying bas
kets of peaches, or drawing band carts,
and in other ways engaged in very
severe toil. It is, of course, better
titan idleness or crime, but at I lie same
time it is not a pleasant sight. As a
contrast wilh this wretched degrada
tion, l ma,\ mention a statement made
to me by a deader in fashions that
there are 500 wotneii in tbis city, each
of whom spends $_i,UOO a year in
dress, antl tbat there are also ten times
that number who spends $k>,ooo a
year in the same manner. It is very
difficult to imagine tbe feelings of one
of tins fashion worshipping clique,
antl perhaps still more difficult to outer
into the experience of the poorest
class. Ltd us look for a moment upon
the woman whose entire capital is
invested In a basket of peaches. These
must be carried to the place favorable
for their sale. Tbey must be counted
in ortier to know the cost, anil to 11k
the price which will give a reasonable
prolit, and then they arc sorted in
heaps, and labeled so tis to attract the
purchaser. If you will place yourself
in position for v moment, and then
watch the eye of each passer-by, in
order to observe how he notices your
stock and terms, you may have an
idea of the life followed by thousands.
Many of them make a miserable liv
ing, while others try it and are driven
off by the severe competition which
prevails even in the lowest branches
or Trade. Taking it in its general
view, the city is certainly unfavora
ble to women. Among the rich the
idle luxury of high life wastes its vic
tims into effete helplessness, while
among the poor the sex suffers a dis
proportionate degree of hardships.
One of the results is that the female
countenance developed among the
last mentioned class la fearfully ugly.
You can find the most repulsive look
ing creatures here that can be iinagin-
Sotne of these creatures may be a part
of the poverty of the Old World,
while others may have descended from
respectable, and even noted families
which have fallen into poverty by
such revulsions as are even now iv
progress,—[Troy Times, N. V.

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD,
Tho flrst of October, Tiik Los Anof.i.is H m-
ALD, n dally nnd weekly newspaper, will
make Its appearance. The Dally will he a
neat (Uld tastily printed seven-column news
paper, newsy rather than literary in charac
ter. Tlie Weekly will he a si.\-column, eight
page paper, anil will contain the most Impor
tant matter that has previously appeared in
Tiik. Daily Hkkalh.
It is proposed that the HF.ltAl.li shall he an
UhbOOght advocate of every Interest pertain
ing to Souther It California and Arizona, and
a zealous worker in all thin:;.- that shall tend
to benotit the State. In a word it will lie in
close communion with the People. In Its col
umns, from time to time will tie found mat
ters of Interest to the California Farmer, Me
chanic, Merchant, Laborer, and all classes of
Producers; uiul it will also contain rending
matter suited to the Home Circle.
The Hkkai.ii will he an Independent Demo
cratic Journal aud its efforts directed to sweep
ing from power and place those now misman
aging the alta Irs oil he Nation. For Ihe accom
plishment of I his end, il will hail wilh satisfac
tion the co-operation oil he members Of all Par
ties, believing that the prosperity, perhaps
safety,of the Nation depends upon Ihe success
of a movement of this character. II is " .vioim
now or revolution hereafter."
The llKHAt.li will uovocatc stale Bights and
oppose rent raii/.al ion; it Will encourage White
and oppose Coolie Immigrntien. ll will favor
Free Trade, and oppose Protective Tariff; It
will advocate a (ireenhnek Currency for Call
nn uiu, and oppose the present dwarfing and
deadening policy which upholds the present
ruinous rates ol interest and shuts out Custom
capital. II will advocate the People and op
pose Monopolies, no matter what guise they
may a-•stiiue.
While the Hk.kai n will trout Slavery as a
deail Issue, It will earnestly advocate the
right of every State, be it Northern or Houth
crn—-Massachusetts or South Carolina—to gov
ern itself lv accordance with the wishes of its
people, and the dictates ofthe Federal Con
stitution, without national interference.
The llLii.vLl) will opppsc thieving and pecu
lation. No man rightly owns a dollar until
lie earns It. Every dollar wliich Is taken
from tlie public treasury or private purse
without a Just return Is robbery, und lie who
takes this money Is a thief. Believing tills,
the 11 kkai.li will oppose salary steal*, custom
steals, land steals, railroad steals, and every
kind of steals.
Each day, tbo fullest Foreign and Domestic
Telegrams will he published. 'The aim will
be to supply, in this part of the State, the de
mand heretofore tilled by tbe San Francisco
dallies. No trouble or expense will lie spared
to make the llkkai.ii. In this respect, equal to
any newspaper on the Const. It will also con
tain a full Review ot* tha Local and Foreign
Markets, and the Trades generally, honestly
and carefully complied.
