CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY SEPT. 17, 1874. It Is understood that parties owning large interests in (he Panamint mines are completing arrangements foff hauling large quantities of ore to the water at Wilmington, whence it will be shipped on board the Panama steamships and sent on to Swansea, England, where it will be thoroughly tested and the value of the mines es tablished. A number of teams about San Bernardino are already engaged to do the hauling nnd will commence work in a few days. We presume this enterprise has been inaugurated at tbe suggestion of Senator Jones, who has invested heavily in those mines. The statement made in yesterday morning's Herald to the effect that the nearest water to Mrs. mill, during the tire the other nigh! which the firemen could find was dis tant from the flames just far enough to require every foot of hose the Fire Department had in use, was some thing of a mistake. The water used happened to be that first found, and as the hose was found sufficient no other water was sought for. But if needed it could have been found. The im mense well at Mr. Beaudry's water works is less than half the distance from the mill that the hose of the De partment will reach. The celebration of Mexico's dis franchisement from tlie domination which was consummated on the 16th of September, 1810, was duly celebrat ed by the Spanish-Mexican population of this city and county yesterday. The ceremonies were commemorative and tasteful. The speeches and songs were appropriate and given in a feel ing and pleasing maimer. The car containing "America," with " Liber ty" and "Justice" on either side, representing the different States of Mexico, were the most tastefully and beautifully decorated chariots we have ever seen. The procession was or derly and highly respectable, both in numbers and appearance. The Express continues to exasperate over the Herald's refusal to credit it for the meager ami often incompre hensible dispatches it prints and we sometimes copy. Now there is no reason why our contemporary should get excited. There is no actual value attached to those dispatches, and while we do not question the Express 1 as sertion that it pays for them, we must be permitted to say that in doing so it affords the most indisputable proof of being in a condition that demands the appointment of a guardian for its af fairs and the consignment of its man agers to the commonwealth's home for idiots. The newspaper pur loiner of those dispatches after contin uing the custom for one year could not be held for petty larceny, because there is no value in them. The reader will observe that the Herald pub lishes about three times as much dis patch, as well as three times as much other reading matter, as the Express. We all cut out of the Bulle tin, and the Herald's scissors are longer than those of the Express. That's all. Compulsory Temperance a Failure. What has become of the temperance crusade? Has the scheme failed and have the apostles of temperance found a cause that pays better, on which to expend their eloquence and energy ? Telegrams from the East no longer announce the surrounding of saloons by troops of female crusaders, and we no longer hear of startling conversions from the whisky - selling business. What does all this mean ? Has the attempt to hold the mirror up to na ture and show vice in all its hideous ness, proved useless ? Have the great moral teachers and the enthusiastic moral disciples fainted in the good work and fallen by the wayside, or have they discovered that they started in wrong? In our own State, Local Option, a plant of rank growth and brilliant promise, has disappointed its friends and supporters by shrinking, withering, drooping, dying. Where it is law it is hardly enforced, ami iv no town or county can a majority be obtained in its favor. Why is this ? The cause is as good, the evil as great and the demand for reform as Impera tive now as six months ago. When the first attempts to enforce the law were made, the Hekald expressed doubts as to its power to reach the evil, but we urged a fair trial of tlie experiment and implicit obedience where tlie ma jority decided for no license. The trial has been made and the general im pression is that it is a failure—tha twe cannot legislate men's appetite out of them nor morality into them, It all comes back to this: We may lead a horse to water but we cannot compel him to drink. Moral suasion and ed ucation are the only effective temper ance advocates. We may persuade a man not to drink, but our command that he shall not drink he defies. The correctness of this theory is strongly exemplified in Los Angles. Here where Local Option couh' not be car ried under almost any circumstances the temperance cause is progressing steadily, we may say, rapidly. The moral suasion of the Good Tem plars is inducing drink: men—men who have been in the ha tof getting drunk —to take a pledge not to drink and keep it. This is the only effect ive mode of warfare that can be used against intemperance. Persuade men to abandon the vice by contrasting its evils with the purity and happiness of a temperate life. A Few Questions Answered. Mr. Milton Lindley, who spent some tinio in this city la>t Winter anil fhen returned to his home in Minne apolis, Minnesota, writes to Mr. J. W. Purrs that himself and family will spend tlie coming Winter in Los An geles, and asks the following ques tions: Is your city improving ? Are many new settlers coming in? Js there much building this year? Ts real estate advancing f Ts the South ern Pacific Railroad completed to Bakersfleld .' Is tlie company build ing north of San Fernando this Sum mer ? These questions we answer as follows: The city is Improving rapidly, as Mr. Lindley will see on his arri val, after an absence of less than one year. The improvement in house building has been very great and Still continues. Tlie population is increas ing steadily. The advance in real es tate throughout the city is estimated at fifteen per cent. It is probably more. The Southern Pacific Railroad is completed to Bakersfleld, and the road graded some ten miles south of that point. The company have not built any road north of Ban Fernando this Summer, but they have a corps of engineers running lines over the different routes between the two ends of the track, and it is understood that a permanent survey will be made be tween now nnd Winter, and that ac tive operations will be commenced in the Spring. Since Mr. Lindley's visit to our city, the Los Angeles and Independence Railroad enterprise has been inaugurated, and within the past few days the undertaking exhibits a degree of vitality which almost in sures its successful carrying out. This enterprise will make Los Angeles the second city iv the State. The Alden Dried Fruits. In view of the fact that the Alden Evaporators of Mr. Jeo. B. Davis will soon be in operation in this city; the following which we find in a late number of the Alta will be of more than usual interest to the people of this valley: "The Alden fruits dried in California are this year exhibited in considerable variety for the first time at the Agricultural Fairs; and are re garded with universal favor. The drying establishments are, unfortu nately, not numerous enough to dry one-tenth part of the crop that should be dried: and the market is glutted with the fresh fruit. An order was received here a few days since from Philadelphia for six thousand pounds of the Alden peaches at 40 cents, currency, per pound, but cannot be tilled. Some Alden prunes of the small d'Agen va riety are, without exception, the best in flavor we have ever tasted. They preserve internally the yellowish col or and something of the soft texture of the fresh fruit, whereas the finest French prunes, imported in jars and sold he 1 at CO cents per pound retail, are dark and leathery. The Alden prunes can be sold here with a profit at 20 cents per pound, or even less. An acre will hold 150 prune trees, each of which will bear 100 pounds, or 15,000 pounds to the acre, equiva lent to 5,000 pounds of dried prunes, worth, at 20 cents per pound, $1,000." Mr. Frank Pyle, who conies down to superintend the erection of tlie evaporators and set them in opera tion, will arrive per Orizaba to-day. Pacific Coast Items. The new beet factory at Sequel, has been completed. Seventy-live men are employed in the San Jose woolen-mills. There was a nipping frost at Quin cy, Piunias county, last week. The Sacramento Beet Sugar Fac tory uses barrels made of Cottonwood. Frogs are being caught at Watson ville, and shipped to San Francisco to market. Santa Cruz county must raise $15, --451 12 by taxation for school purpo ses. There are 05 students in attendance at the Hesperian College at Wood land. It is announced that Levy Pickens will soon start a woolen-mill at Santa Barbara. A bear made its appearance on the Cloverdale ranch, at Pescadero, last week. The woods around Santa Cruz, nre black with quails ofthe plumed kind. D. 11. (ieiger, the murderer of Mrs. Strong, was taken to the State Prison on Wednesday morning. The settlers ou the Berryesa grant within tlie pueblo of San Jose, are again threatened with litigation. John Portson was last week granted a franchise to run a street railroad iv tlie Santa Uosa, Sonoma county, for twenty years. At the dedication services of the Santa Rosa Baptist Church, on the 16th instant, the sum of $1,000 was subscribed. Preparations are being made at So noma for tlie establishment of a large champagne factory on the European process. At Big Mea lows, Plumas county, the farmers are anticipating another hard winter, and are putting up large quantities of hay. The San Jose papers complain that the present water system of that city docs not furnish sufficient protection in case of fire. The school census of Klamath coun ty shows 291 children, of which num ber Humboldt gets 141 and Siskiyou 150 by the division. The Sausal road to Pine Flat is now ready for travel, and the distance to Healdsburg from Pine Flat is reduced to sixteen miles. The Local Option election in Indian Township, Plumas county, is set for October 3d. It is thought that the vote will go against license. A man named McCool, a teamster, was killed on Friday, at Dougherty's mill, above Lexington, Santa Clara county. He was dragged about a mile and a half by his team, and when found life w. extinct. He was about 45 years of age. Spiritualism. EDITOR Herald: Your correspond ent, "Homo," seems to be waiting for "the key" to the discovery of man's immortality. Allow me to say to him, he needs no key. All over the world " the gates nre ajar." Step in, friend Homo, and prospect for your self. Your own gooil judgment will tell you when you 11 nil the true gold. I NVESTIOATOK. Railroad Meeting in Portland. Portland, Sept. 14.—The meeting of the citizens in favor of tho Portland, Dalles and Salt Lake Ilailroad on Sat urday evening was largely attended. A resolution was passed that the Leg islature should so modify the Rid heretofore granted toward the con struction of tlie road so that tlie con sideration for work to be performed may be available, as the work pro gresses, to a sum not to exceed S-'iO.OOO per annum, anil should appropriate a sufficient sum of money to defray ex pense- of prosecuting this important enterprise. Incendiary Attempt at San Lcandro. San Leandro, Sept. 14.—Between 11 and 12 o'clock last night an at tempt was made to burn tiie bakery shop ofL. Musler.by igniting some coal oil which had been poured on the cor ner of the building. The flames were discovered in time to be easily extin guished. It is supposed that the ob ject of the incendiary was to plunder the surrounding buildings during the excitement. On Sunday, the 6th instant, a terri ble tragedy was enacted near Jackson, Amador county, by the shooting and killing of John Ratto by Giobatto De voto. Both the slayer and the slain were regarded as peaceable, law-abid ing men. Devoto has left for parts unknown. At a camp-meeting near Freestone, Sonoma county, a few days ago, two tents, with tlieir entire contents, were destroyed by fire. The fire occurred about midnight, and the inmates nar rowly escaped injury. Their clothing and bedding were consumed. Only $65,000 more is required to complete the Santa Cruz narrow-gauge railroad, and arrangements have al ready been made for obtaing that amount. Tlie Marysville woolen-mills are running to their utmost capacity. Orders are on hand which cannot be' tilled before the first of December, sixty men are employed. MARRIED.
