another boy, Harvey Hargett by name
for safe keeping, and soon after both
of them were captured. The stolen
puree was recovered with $5 25 of its
contents, that being $2 75 short of the

Professor Denton's Lecture.
A large audience gathered at Grange
Hall last evening to listen to Professor
Denton, on the "Origin of Man." He
commenced by saying: We live in a
world swarming with life, vegetable
life and animal life, life within life,
animalculse innumerable—and here
we find ourselves. How come we
here ? This is the question for us to
answer to-night. There are but two
answers to this question. We came
into life either by miracle or vitality,
under the laws of nature as taught by
science. There are no new operations
to-day. The same laws operated a
million years ago that we find in opera
tion to-day. Here the speaker enu
merated the laws governing and con
trolling the elements, and coming to
the law of life he said, nothing is found
by miracle. In early times, supersti
tion prevailed, even thunder and
lightning and earthquakes were not
understood. Now science enlightens
the mind and explains all things. The
law of life, of vitality, is the law of
production and re-production, aud
the operations of this law,
beginning down at the bottom,
has always been in operation.
He read authority showing that vital
germs exist in nature, aud from natu
ral causes. Innumerable beings arc
{•roduced in sealed flasks of water,
leated to nearly 300°—far above where
life can be sustained. He spoke of
many laws in process of production
and reproduction; when, coming to
the law of variation, he shewed how,
in the vegetable world and animal
kingdom, uulikes as well as likes are
produced by the same species, thus
contributing to a great divergence
from the original stock. He noxt
mentioned the law of hereditary trans,
mission—a very marked law, discov
ered everywhere. Next he named the
law of modification—all life is modi
fied by the elements surrounding aud
coming in contact with the subjects
endowed with life. Man aud animals
living at a great elevation must have
large lungs, and their progeny will be
adapted to that atmosphere. He had
seen little plants in England grow to
trees in California. He next treated
tlie law of natural selection. Trees
and animals produce a thousand tunes
more seed than can survive. A crab
will produce 90,000,000 young—au oak
a million acorns. In each instance,
but few survive to reproduce. Theru

and commercial position of Los

showing also the largest and

showing the proposed railroads

and to Salt Lake; also the thirty

It is plain to be seen that Los
Angeles county is the represent
ative county of Southern Califor
nia, and tne emporium of Los
Angeles county and Southern
California is Los Angeles City,
centrally located therein ; also

ley on the Globe.
is a struggle for life among the
young everywhere and in all things.
The Professor quoted Darwin quite
freely, but stated he differed widely
from him. How everything resem
bles the conditions of life which sur
round them. Those blind laws do not
produce maturity, yet we cannot leave
them out. It is the spirit of man op
erating with these natural laws. In
addition to these laws there are point
ers. First, metamorphoses — passing
through a series of changes. Here
the speaker followed tho steps and
linkings from the fish, the lowest life
to the reptile, the bird, the mammals,
and through these various orders of
mammals rising into a higher life and
a bettercondition till we find man as
the highest and most perfect specimen,
showing strikingly the similarity all
along in these various stages of pro
gress. The anatomical structure is a
great pointer. The advancing forms
of life are another striking pointer—
redundant organs — organs of no use,
are anotherpolnter. It has taken mil
lions of years to make man, and
he is far from being perfect yet. When
man believes in the great indwelling
spirit working within, according to
these laws in nature, producing these
wonderful changes, it elevates man's
estimate of the Supremo being. There
are great gaps to fill in the stages of
life, but geology supplies all. Man
was made from the dust, away down
at the bottom and after millions of
years has reached his high estate —his
noble and Godlike figure and position.
The speaker reviewed the various ob
jections to this theory but we cannot
follow him. He denounced the idea
of degradation to man in coming
from the lower order of animals—the
degradation Is on the other side. If
Goil made man 0,000 years ago, a per
fect man, after his own image, how
had he degenerated in 6,000 years
(pointing to the numerous horrible
faces of humanity on his charts be
fore the audience). In six thousand
years more we will be crawling on the
ground, and scrambling among the
branches, and in 6,000 more where
would we be f A noble thought that
man has arisen bo high and still liv
ing in God. and God may live in us if
we are worthy. The ideal of goodness
is God, and man should love and serve
him. It is impossible in such a re
port to make the reader understand
the lecturer as the hearer heard him,
Tlie Professor was often applauded,
His theme for to-morrow night is:
•'The Deytiny of Man."
The Independence Road.
The following letter, written for the
Express, from San Bernardino, will
furnish the particulars of an impor
tant railroad meeting held at that
place last Saturday:
The business men of San Bernar
dino met in public meeting at Boren's
Hall this afternoon, for the purpose of
giving expression to their opinions
with regard to the desirability of tak
ing stock in the Los Angeles and Inde
pendence Railroad, which is proposed
to pass in their immediate vicinity,
ani connect their ricli agricultural
valley with the immense mineral belt
lying north and west of them.
The meeting was organized at 3
o'clock p. M. Judge Rolfe being
called upon to preside, made a few
introductory remarks introducing
Capt. Beane, the Secretary of the
Board of Incorporators, who pro
ceeded to lay before the meeting
the object of the enteprise, the
progress which had been made, and
finally to re vi the article of incorpora
tion which heads the subscription list.
The reading of this paper was listened
to with interest especially as it pro
vides for "a narrow gauge railway
equipped with T iron rails laid on the
cross ties, and extending from the city
of Los Angeles to Independence, Inyo
county.
Cant. Beane, before retiring, intro
duced Mr. Crawford, tho Engineer of
the Company, who gave a brief de
scription of the topographical features
of the route via Cajbn Pass, (rrades,
distances and elevations; exhibited
the map and answered numerous ques
tions propounded by parties familiar
with the country traversed.
During tlie meeting, speeches were
made by Judges Boren, Swift and
Rolfe, Messrs, J. Walters, Roe, Jacobs,
Katz, Kelting and others. The uni
versal sentiment breathed by all was
opposition to monopoly nnd favorable
to any connection which wonld bind
them to the mining regions of Pana
mint and Cerro Gordo, and ensure
them an outlet to tbe sea, and reduc
tion of the present grievously heavy
freight rates. During the course of
their remarks the speakers were fre
quently applauded.
At the close of the meeting Judge
Boren offered a series of resolutions
indorsing the project, and appointing
a committee or five to co-operate with
the Board of Incorporators of the Los
Angeles and Independence Railroad,
solicit subscriptions, eto. The follow
ing committee was nominated and
elected by the meeting: Messrs. Boren,
Waters, Roe, Jacobs and Dr. Barton;
after which the meeting adjourned
to meet, again at a call from the
committee.

made for a grand good time, and a
large number of tickets have already
been disposed of so that the success of
the affair is now well settled. Among
the other amusements will be some
solid and fancy comfort set out by P.
Golding, of the Washington Restau
rant, and people may rest assured that
the vacuum which nature abhors, will
be well provided against. Go to the
firemens' ball if you wish some first
rate enjoyment.
Murphy's Farewell.
A fair audience assembled at the
Merced Theatre last night to give
Murphy a respectable "send off."
The programme consisted of male und
female minstrels, variety performance
and a laughable piece entitled "An
Irishman's Blunders." The conclusion
of the minstrel performance in which
was introduced the "Poor Old Slave,"
had a fine effect and gave the well
known song a coloring amounting to
pathos. In "Music on the Brain,"
one of the variety pieces, Murphy in
troducd some charming music on the
French harp, and some in an equal
degree ridiculous on a nondescript in
strument. The company will give an
entertainment in \Vilmlneton to
night. For the present, we have bid
them good-bye.
A Decided Improvement.
Editor Herald:—l made the hasty
remark in the last number of the
Herald, that I thought the Santa
Barbara Press especially inclined to
exaggerate the attractions of Califor
nia. lam convinced, after a little re
flection, that the remark was unjust,
and wish in fairness to the Press, to
correct the error. I will also say that
lam not a "dissatisfied sojourner." I
have come to stay, and think much
better of the country than the Her
ald seems to suppose, although from
my present knowledge of California,
I think its advantages have in many
respects been greatly over-rateu.
Please make this correction in your
paper and oblige. Yours respectfully,
D. W. McKnioht.

swer to "L," in our last issue, to

SIOO, counsel fees, lor the reason that tlie bond
required to be taken by the Clerk before llie
Issuance of Ihe summons had not be n filed.

and slander, had been repealed by tbe Code.

to one of the findings by the Court. Tills
amendment was objected toby defendant's

application had been given, and that the
plaintiff was barred from making such amend
ment by lapse of time. The Court allowed

practice to be followed In future, that upon
notice to conns 1 of the fiilng of findings, the

OBITUARY.
Alone! Alone! Such was the cry of the
heart-broken and bereaved parents, as they
gazed their last on their only remaining
child. Aionei howsadi How return to the
desolate home. How see the hundreds of lit*
i le toys and belongings of the dear ones, theh
all torn irom their fond and loving arms In
the space of a few days. Seldom has our lit
tie city been so saddened—seldim has public
and private sympathy been so universally
expressed as In this sad, sad case. Two
lovely darlings—the only cliildreu of Michael
Levy—were taken to their home In Heaven In
In the short space of one week. Libia, the
eldest—a lovely blue-eyed, cuily-headed girl,
'he darling of her little sister Lilly, who fol
lowed her the next day. The bereaved
mother, when she closed the eyes of her sec
ond babe, said: " It Is best so; she could no 1
llv<- without her sister. They were always to
re t her, and sister was everything to her, Tbey
are now two angels, dwelling In Heaven to
gether, never more to be separated. God
wanted two more ser iphs to swell his choir,
and he called your two darlings, my dear
Mends, so be comforted—for as they cannot
come to you, you will look forward to the
time when you Khali go to them. J. M.
