CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY OCT. 2, 187<*.
The dispatches report Germany
increasincr her war fleet on the coast of
Spain. This is indicativo of coming
trouble.
The Express chatters about brains.
The great weakness of that paper is to
talk of things it neither has nor un
derstands.
Our little eveniug cotempoiary ac
cuses the Herald of trying to belittle
it. This is a mistake. We never at
tempt impossibilities.
The fight is so organized in Mis
souri that there seems but little doubt
but that the Independents will elect
their candidate for Governor —Major
Gentry—and a majority of their Con
gressmen.
Engineer Crawford is not favor
ably impressed with the practicability
ofTejunga Cafion as a railroad pass.
It is narrow and tlie surface very ir
regular, the grade reaching as high as
two hundred and fifty feet to the mil?.
He believes there are other and better
passes through the Sierra Madre, aud
he will start out in search of them in
a few days.
We regret to find the Express con
necting the term "Vigilance Com
mittee" with the McDonald murder
case. The necessity for such a body
does not exist in this community.
The Herald has pointed out the utter
worthlessuess of the law governing
criminal cases and cited the fact that
such law tends to destroy the confi
dence of the people in all law and re
grets that the Express thinks itself
called upon to speak of a Vigilance
Committee.
At this time it is hardly just to ap
ply the term "rotten burrough" to
the State of Nevada. The palm for
that sort of thing belongs to San Fran
cisco. In the metropolis, corruption
in office seems to be the custom and
not the exception. First the Tax Col
lector is discovered to have strayed a
long way from the line of duty to the
people. Then the Assessor's Office is
found in a condition which necessi
tates the taking charge thereof by the
Mayor and Auditor. Next we find
Coroner Rice in possession of a valua
ble buggy robe which belonged to the
estate of a dead man who suicided and
was sat on by the Coroner and his jury.
Roally, some of San Francisco's office
holders are proving themselves un
worthy servants of the people.
Railroad Prospects.
There is more energy apparent
among our leading citizens at this
time in the way of railroad enterprise
than we have been able to note here
tofore. There seems a quiet determin
ation on the part of those from whom
we have a right to expect action, to
take measures which will secure the
building ofthe Los Angeles and Inde
pendence Railroad. We understand
that the Company is effecting a per
manent organization and in a few days
an assessment of ton percent, on the
stock subscribed will be levied. Tlie
books will be opened, and all men of
means who desire the prosperity of
our city aud valley will not hesitate
to take such an amount of stock
as their financial condition will war
rant. Senator Joxes has subscribed
$220,000 to aid In the construction of
this road and if the people of Los An
geles county will set the ball in mo
tion with liberal subscriptions and en
ergetic action ho will not only invest
more of his own money but he will
induce otlier capitalists to invest their
means in the enterprise. There never
was a time when the interests of all de
manded a more prompt and united
action of the entire community. The
building of this road is all important to
us, and we must not stand idly by and
let the opportunity to inaugurate and
carry out the work slip through our
Angers.
Los Angeles Raisins.
A visit yesterday to tlie Alden fruit
drying factory of Mr. Geo. B. Davis,
iv course of construction on tbe east
side of the river, satisfied us Unit the
works were being pushed rapidly for
ward and that tlie factory would be in
operation in a short time. Tlie brick
work inclosing the three, vaporizers is
all completed, and the evaporators
were finished almost to tlie third floor.
Prom Mr. FBANK PYLE, who is super
intending the work, we learned that
the evaporators would be ready for
operation iv about one week from this
time We make this statement for
the information of grape-growers who
wish to dispose of their grapes to Mr.
Davis and are anxious to know at
what time he will be ready to receive
them. Mr. Pvlk is pushing each di
vision of tlie work as rapidly as the
number of workmen to be obtained
will do it. Tlie flrst work of the evap
orators will be the manufacture of rai
sins from tlie Mission grape. As these
grapes ripen, Mr. Pyle becomes more
thoroughly impressed with the opin
ion that they will make a raisin vastly
■superior to that manufactured from
the Mission grape in other portions of
the State. This opiniou is shared by
Mr. McMum.in and other San Fran
cisco wholesale grocers who have vis
ited this city and valley during the
present Summer. The indications are
that Mr. Davis will not be able to
meet the demand for his raisins until
he enlarges his factory to its fullest ca
pacity, which is that of sixteen evap
orators.
Another Pacific Railroad.
The greatest want of California,next
to a large addition to her population,
is another Pacific Railroad, and it is
even doubtful If the railroad is not
her first want, since that would inev
itably contribute largely to her pop
ulation. Our isolation was relieved
very much by the construction ofthe
Central line, but that line has too
much the character of a monopoly to
yield all the benefits that were ex
pected from it. Both the Central, and
the Uuion Pacific Companies fell
under the control of persons some
what lacking in an appreciation of the
benefits conferred upon them by a
<:i-nerous public. A distinct, but at
the same time most natural manifes
tation of self-seeking has ever been
observable in the management of tho
road already built and nothing, short
of a healthy competition can correct
the evil. But even if a more generous
spirit had always been displayed by
them and those railroads had been
conducted on tho most magnanimous
principles towards the public; never
theless such is the vast extent of our
country on the Pacific Coast, stretch
ing as it does through many degrees
of latitude, that more than one rail
road connecting us with the Atlantic
States is absolutely indispensible. Its
necessity is increasing with the rapid
growth of Southern California, which
reaches oft* towards that part of the
Union with which we are most close
ly allied by climate and productions.
It is now understood that the Texas
Pacific and the Atlantic and Pacific
have been united under one manage
ment, and the energies of both organ
izations can therefore be directed to
wards the one grand object of pushing
on towards the Pacific Ocean. An
enterprise of so much national impor
tance ought to have the encourage
ment of the National Government;
as it indeed has in the form of
largo donations of land, but it deserves
some more direct n*nd available aid;
as for example a guaranty of interest
at a limited rate for a limited time
upon a limited amount of lands, is
sued for its construction, as fast as
constructed, but no faster. Such a
procedure on the part of the Govern
ment would be without risk, and
would result in an early completion of
the road, and at the same time very
great advantage to the Government.
Should the Government in the trans
action be required to pay a few hun
dred thousand dollars as interest, a
thing not likely, but possible, it would
be returned ten, twenty or a hundred
fold in national glory and renown, in
national wealth, in security along
our border, in exemption from Indian
disturbances, in agricultural, mineral
aud commercial developments, and in
many other unthought-of ways. It is
susceptible of demonstration that the
Government would save large amounts
of money in the operation, for the
moat expensive portion of our military
establishments are in Arizona and
New Mexico, which would be trav
ersed by a Southern Pacific Railroad.
The anti-railroad feeling that has
grown up in this country out of the
mis-management of the line already
constructed is blindly opposing every
other enterprise of a like character,
but the only way of correcting the
evils wrought upon the public is to
encourage competition, and that en
couragement ought to come from the
general Government,whence the pres
ent monopoly derives its strength. If
the creation of this monopoly was the
work of Congress, it is unquestionably
the duty of Congress to relieve the
public from that monopoly, which it
can easily do in the way suggested.
TKE robbery of immigrants on the
overland railroad by three-card monte
sharps is of almost daily occurrence.
It is strange that the officers on the
Contral Pacific and Union Pacific roads
cannot prevent the repetition of these
outrages. The robber-gamblers can
not but be known to the conductors of
trains, and the wonder is why do they
see ignorant men fleeced of their last
dollar without taking some action for
preventing it. It looks in some cases
almost as if the railroad men and the
gamblers had an understanding, if not
a partnership, in the business. No
one but a fool will bet at three-card
monte, and when the railroad men
find they have an imbecile on board
they should guard against his having
his pockets picked, as well as prevent
him jumping ofl'the train.
The Stockton Committee.
STOCKTON, September 29.—The four
teenth annual fair of tiie San Joacpuin
Agricultural Society was opened at 10
o'clock this morning. The event was
made public by the ringing ofthe bell
at the Court-house. Last night and
this morning tlie exhibitors were busy
at the pavilion, where the exhibition
promises to eclipse that of last year.
The decorations, so far as made, are
exceedingly pretty, and include a lib
eral display of bunting and wreaths of
wheat and flowers worked into all
kinds of devices. Boughs of heavily
laden fruit adorn the walls and the
whole has a marked aud ugreeable
c fleet.
The President of the Society, L. TJ.
Shippee, was engaged at Agricultural
Park all the morning superintending
the entries of stock, of which six car
loads arrived last night and making
preparations for the races to come olf
this afternoon.
A capacious tent has been set up at
the Park as a pavilion for the agricul
tural implements, and the array of
these articles at an early hour this
morning was quite extensive. The
society has expended about $8,000 at
the Park since the last Fair, aud the
Directors now claim that the track
will compete with anything of the
kind in the State. A new grand stand
has been constructed which, will seat
1,800 people.
Pierra La Halle, a French sheep
herder, was last week found brutally
murdered between Fort Tejon and Te
hachape,Kern county.
