CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY JULY 17, IS7L The Two Decisions. The two decisions of the Supreme Court—one rendered a year or more ago and the other quite recently—af fecting the Spring Valley Water Com pany, do not appear to us to be so contradictory as some of our cotempo raries are disposed to regard them. The two opinions are based on very different grounds. In the first, the point determined was whether, in con sideration of certain privileges granted by the city to the company, stated ao eommoiations could be claimed for tlie city, as promised by the company. In other words, the company agreed to furnish water for certain purposes without charge, accepting in payment therefor the privileges named in the franchise. The first, opinion was based on the statement here set forth. The Court he'd that the company were but complying with their contract, and so long as the city maintained the corporation's right to the exclusive en joyment of those privileges, the city was entitled to the agreed price of those privileges—which was the free use uf water for certain purposes—and it was decided that the company could not collect rent for water soused. In the second decision the Court held that the company could collect for the water «o furnished by the city, but in reaching that opinion it lays down a principle which will prove far more damaging to the water company of San Francisco and to all other holders of special - privilege franchises than they are at present willing to admit. It denies the right of the Legislature to graut special franchises of any kind whatever. The first decision consid ered the conditions and stipula tions of a contract, while the second decision is based on the legality of the contract itself. In tho first ease the Court examined only the compact between the city and the com pan}-, and held both parties to the fulfillment of their promises. In the second case the Court went farther back, and finding tlie contract null, because uuconsititutional, held that as the city could not guarantee the promised reward for free water it must pay for it in coin. The decision says in effect to the water company; you cannot longer enjoy the especial priv ileges you have been exercising, and as the law does not require you to give something for nothing you may col lect for your water. It does not re quire a great amount of common sense and legal knowledge to enable one to understand how the same bench could render those two opinions without a thought of contradiction or stultification. They do not conflict and we have shown that both are strictly correct. The right of a Legis- Uture to donate gifts at the expense of the public has always been regarded as a doubtful right. The exercise of this doubtful right has been so fre quent that it has cost the people of this State millions of dollars. There seems to be no more reason why a man or company should be given the exclusive right to sell a town water or gas than that one man or company should hold the sole right to supply a town with beef or flour. Such fran chises always create a monopoly and the Legislature has no right to im pose a monopoly on the people. The decision of the Supreme Conrt is that the people should not be duped into making special privilege compacts, but when t hey are so duped, the Leg islature shall not ratify them. Free Speech and Free Press. A late number of the Evening Ex press contains an editorial In which a recent decision of the Supreme Court of this State is severely criticised, and the Court istelf spoken of in terms the reverse of complimentary. This a free country, and the right of every man to express his opinion of everybody else is one of the inalienable privileges that grew out of the Revolution, and has propagated itself from generation to generation, until every American citizen would feel that his rights were invaded and his liberties threatened, if lie could not indulge in an occasion al swear at the President or any member of his Cabinet. " Free Speech and Free Press" are senti ments we all indorse until we happen to feel the lash of one or both of these powers; after that we are not so en thusiastic on the subject of freemen's rights It may be as the Express says, that our Supreme Court is a disgrace to the State, but the recent decision of that Court denying the right of the Legislature to grant special and ex clusive franchises to individuals and corporations, is no evidence of such disgrace. The principle on which this decision is based is oneof great impor tance to the people of California, and the sooner the theory that a few men m iy be enriched through the bestowal of exclusive privileges, at the expense and inconvenience of the many, is effectually exploded, the better it will be for the people. The last decision of the Supreme Court, in tho Spring Val ley Water Company's case, is the cor rect one. Death on Bugs. An exchange tells of a farmer in Indiana who purchased one of the small Babc'vl; lire extinguishers under the Impression that it might save his house or barn from being burned. No opportunity occurred to use the instru ment for the purpose intended and after it had lain around the house a couple of years, oue day the farmer strapped it on his back and went out into the garden, resolyed to squirt the contents of the machine without fur therdelay. The first thing on which he turned the pipe was a patch of half bug-eaten potato plants. In a few moments he noticed the ground cov ered with dead potato-bugs, an 1 by the time the machine was empty not a live bug could be found in the gar den, and the farmer had found a new and valuable use for his Babcock ex tinguisher. The experiment of the Indiana farmer has suggested the pos sibility that the chemical compound used in the extinguisher mny be use ful in killing the insects that some times damage tho trees and fruit of this country. Alarmed. The Santa Barbara I'rms tees cause for alarm In tho recent race of the Granada and Vasco de Gama between San Francisco aud Yokohama, and fears we shall soon have to record the harrowing details of an explosion at sea. We have no means of knowing just how great a pressure the boilers of these two steamers were required to sustain. Nothing serious, we imagine, as steamship companies now-a-days have a horror of large coal bills. The other "race" cited by the Prett— -that of the steamers Los Angeles anil Sen ator —was also free of danger, for after the first hour the vessels were so dis tant from each other that there was no longer cause for excitement. In eighteen hours'the Los Angeles was about one hundred miles nearer San Francisco than the Senator. Such "racing" is not dangerousto the trav eling public. A LADY correspondent has written the editor of the Herald a pretty lit tle note, in which she desires to know if comets are dangerous. For the life of us, we cannot answer this question satisfactorily. Comets arc dangerous or not, just as it happens. The comet is a good deal like a woman—a pretty one. We have read that comets are capable of doing much harm, but we never knew of their doing any serious damage. They frighten the ignorant, but thoso who have studied their na ture do not fear them. Here again they resemble woman in being very eccentric. They move rapidly, but you can never tell within a neighbor or two where they are going nor when they will be back. Fair lady, the comet is not more dangerous than yourself. Professor Denton's Second Lecture. Professor Denton gave his second lecture at Grange Hall last night to a large and intelligent audience. He reviewed the main points of hia pre vious lecture, dwelling upon the great heat of the earth and the millions of years the earth has been assuming its present form. Lava was thrown out three hundred years ago in such quan tities in Mexico that it is not cold yet. When scientists now begin toconipute the time which has passed, they are baffled as soon as they begin. Just as the earth is forming now, so has it been forming for myriads of ages. There has been a stormy time iv the history of our planet, in its upheav ings, eruptions and explosions. In studying geology, the first formation of rock we find is granite—the mother of rocks; the second, quartz; third, feldspar, and fourth, mica. We find granite in the lowest, at the bottom, and in the highest formations, at the top of the highest mountains. Al though found at the bottom, it has been thrown to the top. Next to the granite we find the mctamorphic. This, too, represents the no-life period. While our earth was swinging round and subjected to these upheav ings ami convulsions, the rocks were worn down and the hills were thrown up, and the soil formed. The great body of metals are found in the metamorpnic formations. The miner recognizes this fact in find ing the metallic deposits in the crev ices where they were lodged as they were thrown out from the interior of the earth. The heaviest minerals are deepest in the earth. There is more gold in the center or interior of the earth than we can imagine. He spoke of the immense deposits of copper in the mines of Lake Superior. He explained how the various met als had been thrown out and deposited on or near the surface. Hut, he said, my subject to-night is the development of life. Tlie fosslllf erous rocks were the last formed, and in this formation we find the first life. We must understand zoology to com prehend the wonders of geology—only by studying the present animal king* dom in connection with the geological formation of the earth, can we go back to the base of the animal kingdom. It is such a satisfaction to the geologist to find that zoology and geology agree in all points. Delve as deep as you will into either, light is thrown upon the other. We trace the depth of the rock formation only where there have been great upheavings and the rock tilted up edgewise, and by examina tion the nearer we approach the sur face we find the rocks crowded with shells, once the habitation of animal life. Life and death have always gone hand in hand through all stages of animal life. More blood has been shed than there is water on the earth, and life is only now sustained by re production. The learned lecturer traced the different stages of animal life, from the lowest through every phase up to the highest—man. We are the highest form of life, and we could not exist, had not the lowest form existed. Fishes were the first active animals, but they were few iv num ber and email in size. The first forms of fishes had no back bones. The Professor dwelt at length on the ex istence of oil. Where did it come from ? its origin, etc., reviewed his investigations in the vicinity of. San ta Barbara and Carpenteria. He is convinced that it comes from the coral formation. He spoke of an extinct continent, once lying to the west of us. But time will not permit us to follow the lecturer any more at length. He displayed perfect masttry of his sub ject aud a wonderful depth of Investi gation into these hidden sciences. The Professor has the faculty of carry inghia audience with him to a won derful extent. The subject evening is coal. Latest Telegrams. The PACIFIC Rumored Lease of the Pan* ami Railroad. MR. ANU Nil*!-:. Tll/fOX. EASTERN. Wool Market. Boston', July l">.—The demand for nearly all kinds of wool is steady, al though some manufacturers are dis posed to hold back and bear the mar ket in anticipation of easier prices. Large receipts tend to give the im pression to buyers that a lower range of prices may prevail, but stocks have only begun !o accumulate. As supplies now arriving cost comparatively high rates iv the interior, receivers are only willing to sell when a fair profit is realized. Combines and delaine fleeces are sought after, all available lots ,-ire readily taken at current rates, Most of the large mills have a supply for the present, but many of them cannot keep out of tlie market for any ltnigth of time. Foreign advices are still quite favorable, and there is no margin for shipments to this Hide, Sales of Ohio and Pennsylvania fleeces at 62(2Vie.; Michigan and Wisconsin ">0 cents. Pacific Mail ami tbe Panama Itnilroml. New York, July 15, —Tho rally in the stock market at its close to-day was chiefly In sympathy with the rise in Pacific Mail to44J, and in the tapama road to h' B ; which stocks ad vanced on a rumor that the Pacific Mail Company had leased the Panama road. The facts in the case are as fol lows: The Directors of both compa nies have been talking over the sub ject for months and a committee ap pointed by a joint meeting of the Di rectors ou Tuesday has the matter in charge. The plan proposed is for the Pacific Mail Company to make an arrangement of some kind to operate the Panama road, as neither company can lease to each other, according to their charters; besides this arrange ment, it is proposed that the l'acilic Mail Company relay tlie Panama road with steel rails, as the old iron rails are worn out; pay interest on the Panama Company's bonded debt; pro vide for sinking fund, and pay twelve per cent, per annum for the Panama stockholders in quarterly installments; after this, give Panama Company half of the net earnings. The plan will probably be adopted. The Pacilic Mail Company have con tracted for the construction of a new steamer. Mr. nnd Mrs. Tilton. New Yonic, July 16.— The question of the legal separation of Mr. and Mrs. Tilton is now in the bands of N. B. Morse, formerly Judge of the Court of Appeals. Judge Morse is step-father of Mrs. Tilton, and lias been her hus band's intimate friend for many years. The Mayor's Vmtm.
