SUNDAY, JAN. 4, 1874.
The DAILY HERALD has nearly DOUBLE the Circu lation of either contempo rary paper published in Los Angeles. As an'advertising medium it is consequently of DOUBLE their value. Shall it be a Fight? We luive lately called attention In the Herald to the bird quality of the gas furnished to consumers in this city, and the high price charged for it. We have done this in the interest of the people, believing that their claims arc paramount to those of any clique or combination, not with the view of getting up a right, but hoping to secure icform in a matter that certainly needs amendment. The Gas Company origi nally intended to consist of a number of our citizens, and thus be identified with the other interests of the place, bus gradually passed into the hands of a few individuals, and these parties dhoDM to consider the course of the Hkrald as a personal grievance. When the Hkbald was established, one of the principal stockholders of the Gas Company, who is also in other business, was solicited for an advertise ment by the proprietor. A very in significant one was furnished, accom panied with the very significant re mark that in other ways he would be able to give the new paper important assistance. He was promptly inform ed that the Herald only desired legitimate business, and that only in the regular way. Judging probably from his expe rience with the other city papers, this gentle hint produced no lasting effect, and on the appearance of an article in the Hkrald some time afterwards, advocating the lighting of the streets, another member of the same firm, also Interested in gas visited thisofflce,and unblushingly offered us one hundred dollars to continue the articles. The only answer he received was a dissolv ing view of the back of the proprietor, who suddenly remembered that he had business in some other place. No further articles of that character ap peared in this paper, but on the con trary when we had sufficiently inves tigated the matter, and became satis lied that the Gas Company was sim ply a machine for plundering the peo ple of this city, we opened our guns on the monopoly. This course has brought down upon our heads the wrath of the party whose proffered bribe was spurned, and we have re ceived formal notice of his hostility. His three dollar advertisement has been ostentatiously ordered out, and be is no doubt at this moment sneak ing around the city, trying to induce others to withdraw their support from the Herald. The policy of this chief member of the company seems to be to share the proceeds of his public plunder, in tho shape of bribes, with the press, os long as it will do its dirty work, but to use every effort to crush ■a paper that has the courage to take up the cudgel in behalf of the public good. Though entertaining nothing but the kindest feelings for him personally, we gladly accept the contest thus forced upon us; we shall hold the Gas Com pany, however, responsible for his acts. Me is acting for the company and is inspired by it. It is the Gas Company that propose to buy or intimidate the press of this city, and having secured the silence of the other papers, it con centrates its hostility on the Herald. We shall expect the bitter opposi tion of the Gas ring and any kindred combinations, but we confidently ex pect the support of the people, and with them on our side, we have little fear of the result. Still, while we in tend to fight this monopoly to the bit - ter end, we have no desire to do the slightest injustice to anyone, and as before stated, we are willing to open our columns to a defence of the com pany, if any one chooses to employ them for that purpose. We have asserted that the price charged for gas is an exorbitant one, even if the gas furnished were of good quality. We reiterate that charge, and defy a successful denial. In Oak land, tho paradise of gas manufactur ers, the price is only $4 50 while hero tt is $7 50. In Sacramento the street lamps are lighted for $3 50 per month, while here something over $6 is asked. Gas bills arc simply enormous, and out of all proportion with the amount furnished. We have asserted that the gas is of miserable quality. Wo challenge contradiction on this point. We do not get gas, but Jsmoke. It falls so far below the standard, that in no part of the country would it be rec ognized as gas at all. It smells fear fully, fills the room with an offensive smoke when burning, and is only tol erable because nothing better is at hand. The company pretends to have the exclusive right to manufacture and sell this miserable stuff for the next thirteen years, and its shareholders are pocketing enormous dividends from the profits of their monopoly. The fallacy of this claim can easily be es tablished. No City Council has the right to grant exclusive privileges, wnd the courts will not uphold any -tich invasion of the rights of the peo ple. If wo are wrong here, we are willing to be set right. Again we have asserted that the lo cation of tho gas works in the midst of the city Is a nuisance. It fills all that part of the city with a disagreeable stencil, and reduces materially the value of property. The damage to the material interests of property holders in that neighborhood is more than the entire cost of two such establishments, and health, comfort and convenience alike, call for their removal. Does anybody deny this, and if they do, will they dare to openly proclaim the rea sons for the faith that is in them ? About "Organs." The Express believes that the sole end and aim of a newspaper is to be come the "organ" of some Individual, ring, or clique, and it is unable to un derstand how any other kind of a re lation can exist between a public journal and a corporation. Hence it is in great trouble to know bow the Herald and the Chamber of Com merce, holding different views on the harbor question, manage to get along in amity, and why we publish the views of that body, when they SO pointedly contradict our own. The Express is informed that this paper is in no sense the "organ" of the Chamber of Commerce. That body when it subscribed for one hundred copies of the Weekly Herald did so because they thought it it the best pa per in Los Angeles, and desired to dis tribute it in the East for the enlighten ment of people who may be looking to Southern California as a possible fu ture home. They did not imagine that by so doing they had bribed this paper to support any partic ular policy, or to publish only such articles as they might approve. We take it, that these gentlemen nre too high-minded and honorable to buy newspapers or newspaper men; and that they have no confidence in a paper that has no opinions of its own. On the other hand, we are not to be bought by a few subscriptions or a small advertisement. We say what we think, and what we believe to be for the public good, without asking anybody's permission, and We expect to continue In the same line. This is no reason, however, why we should refuse respectful consideration to the views of others, and the sentiments of the Chamber of Commerce, or any other body of our citizens will always receive candid treatment at our hands, no matter how seriously they may dif fer from those held by the editor of this paper. We should hardly deem it necessary to give expression to principles so trite, were it not that the course of journal ism Id this city has been such as to lead people to think that there is neither independence nor honesty in it. The Express, by its pandering, pettifogging course, has shown that it does not understand the mission of a newspaper, and we therefore give it this Utile lecture gratis. Some time since we assured the Southern District Agricultural Asso ciation that unless some guarantees were made to the Farmers that their Interests should be better represented in the future than in the past, a new Grangers' organization would be the result; that result has now come. Ar ticles of incorporation have been adopted and all the necessary steps taken to form a new society, not in opposition to the old, but one that will represent agricultural interests. Each week the Grangers of Los An geles county and vicinity are acquir ing strength. An iron-clad associa tion for the disposition of produce and for transacting a general mercantile business, is now forming. We shall print on Tuesday the full proposition Messmer goes for the Council. Editor Herald: —I beg your per mission to insert this article in your valuable paper, knowing you are will ing and anxious to publish und make known anything that is astir in our midst, and especially anything which will advance the interests of our city. The city of Los Angeles is to-day probably the finest located in the world —amongst orange trees, and where it is sunshine all the year round; where people move to and fro without suffer ing from severe cold or intense heat; where we should all be happy and try to encourage every one in improving our city. This is done by almost every one except one body, which goes by the name of the City Fathers. They alone discourage and throw obstacles In my way almost all the time, the latest of which was at their last meet ing, when they refused to let me grade my portion of Los Angeles street, which I was doing. If I was not on the right grade, why don't they estab lish one, to which I will conform? Now, I appeal to the good judgment of the people of Los Angeles City if I have not a right to till up the street on which my property is > ituated, when it is low in the middle and high on both sides, and when I am willing to conform to the city grade. No, the City Fathers are not satisfied to let me grade it, but would like to grade the whole street, and charge me about four times the amount for which I can grade the same myself. Have we not had enough of such work? Has not every Councilman lined his pockets In former years? And are not these present City Fathers fol lowing in their forefathers' tracks by stopping me in improving the city of Los Angeles? Why is it they are so anxious to become City Fathers/ This is a problem which canuot be solved by anyone except an Alderman, who knows what to do for his own pocket as soon as the idea strlks him to run for that offlee. They do noth ing to improve the city. Look at every street in this city, and see what a miserable condition it is in; not a decent crossing — a little red clay strewn here and there. Why don't they pass an ordinance requiring every property-holder to grade the portion of the street in front of his or her prop erty, and make nice sidewalks, and then what a change there would be ! This has been my wish for many years, and it will most undoubtedly be for a few years more—until at least a new, energetic, civilized population comes in here and roots out the old fogies from place and power; not until then will our city Improve; the differ ent undeveloped Interests which are now sleeping in their unexplored ele ments will then bring to light won ders to those who now are living for nothing but money. Hoping, yet fearing the contrary, that that time is at no distant date, I am, yours, etc., Louis Mesmeh. Los Angeles, January 3, 1874. Who should be District Judge ? Now that Judge Pablo de la Gueriu has resigned, his failing health malt ing it necessary, the question rises to the lips of all citizens having some in terest in public affairs: "Who will (inventor Booth appoint his succes sor?" We change the question, and nsk, ''Who should Governor Booth ap point as Judge Dc la Guerra's succes sor?" We have carefully canvassed and considered this matter, and believe that the appointment of judge Lindlcy of Ventura county, would be agreea ble to the attornies, and would give satisfaction to the people of this Dis trict. Personally, we have but a little acquaintance with Judge Lidney, but there are attorneys practicing 111 (his District who have known him inti mately for many years who pronounce his moral habits unexceptionable, his learning and legal ability of it high order, and, what is not least In impor tance, who pronounce Him a man of unimpeachable intergrity. Without inveighing against others, we would ask Governor Booth, in be half of what we believe to be the in terests and the will of the people, that he appoint Judge Curtis Lidney to the bench of this Judicial District. If a magistrate in power appoints a man to an office, while at the same time he knows there is another man of superior abilitie , greater experience and higher moral character, who would undertake to fulfil the duties of the positition, he commits a crime against the State.—[Santa Barbara Jnrlr.r.

A little hand of heroes then inaugurated a struggle, which brought untold results, It is very fitting thai their deeds should be commemorated. The nation, at large is very Justly arranging tor a ci'loltration OH an extensive ,-eale, of the centennial anniversary of this event. Thiswill instil patriotic impulse into the souls of those of the coining generations, aud prepares them for the struggles, which they, in life, must undergo, Overhanging li«>s Angeles Is a hill similar to Hunker Hill—nay, it is larger. From it till the city can be seen and the country for miles around. On this hill also, are military marks, the remnants of a fort, which was built for the protection of liberty in this state. This hill lias an ave nue running along its crest, and our friend Beaudry, through whose in fluence chiefly it has been opened, has very appropriately named it Hunker I£ i I*l avenue. The City Surveyor has been ordered to define the grades and lines of 01lve,Charity,and Bunker Hill avenue, from Hill to Rope; Second street, and Temple street, from Hill to Hope. This w ill bring these lands Within easy reach ofthe business part of the city. The distance to the Court House Is less than it is from the Turn ers Hall. Mr. Beaudry being the owner, by perfect and indisputable title, oilers the following scheme, believing that it supplies a felt want. His various tracts have been sur veyed, and platted in lot,s of conveni ent size for residences, upwards of two hundred In number, and the maps, to gether with abstracts of title, are kept for public inspection at his office, op posite the Pico House. Any person desiring to purchase can Inspect the land, select his lot or lots, aud acquire the same, if not previously taken up by another, upon the follow ing terms: Purchasers not being re stricted to a single lot. The purchaser or his successor to nay the fixed price of the lands selected by him, In equal monthly install ments, as follows: On lots valued at S4iMi and upwards, but not to ex ceed S">(HI, $15 per month; on those valued tit $300 and upwards, and less than t>4oo, SB) per month. Pay ments in gold or currency, and no in terest demanded. For cash in hand a reduction of fifteen per cent, will lie made. The purchaser to have immediate possession upon payment of the first installment and on execution and de livery of contract. The right of the purchasers may be assignable by him, and bis assigns to succeed to ail his privileges and lia bilities; standing in all respects to wards the vendor as an original obligor. Purchasers shall not be restricted to the payment of the installments as above shown, but may make pay ments In advance, and on nil such payments lie will allow one per cent, per month, from the date of payment until said payment would become due, Upon selection of a lot or lots by a purchaser, and payment ofthe first in stallment witli five dollars, In V. S. gold coin, as expenses on the docu ment, Mr. Beaudry with the pur chaser, will execute and acknowledge a sealed agreement, embodying the above conditions; and, upon full pay ment, according thereto, the under signed will execute and deliver to the purchaser, or his lawful representa tives, on demand, a good and sufficient ami absolute deed of conveyance of the contracted lands, in form of war ranty against grantor, the grantee paying the cost of such deed. These proposals will be kept open until the 12thday of February, 1874. The location is very desirable. All that has heretofore been lacking is water, ami that want is now fulfilled. Anywhere else, in as desirable loca tion,lots readily command from $600 to $1,000 anil even higher rates. This property is put at the astonishing low price or from $300 to $400, But this is not all. This may be paid in currency and a reduction of fifteen per cent will be made for cash in hand. Merced JTheatre. A grand display of the Spanish Dramatic Troupe, On Saturday Evening. Jan. 3d. 1874.
