CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY OCT. 13, 1874. The Present and the Future. A new era is dawning in the history cf Los Angeles —an era which may date her first step toward the assumption of her (place as the second city of the Pacific Coast, or leave her so trameled with the er rors of feeble government and the bonds of selfish interest that she can only go forward in that slow and un steady gait that has marked her pro gress to her present position. At this time Los Angeles lies bound hand aud foot, the captive of private specula tion. She is the slave of individual monopoly—the victim ef exclusive franchise—and the day is near at hand when she will either emanci pate herself and stand erect,the proud, free city of an independent, enterpris ing people, or tighten about her more closely tbe chains that are now fester ing in her flesh and strangling an ex istence that should just begin to ap preciate the beauty aud happiness of being. There is a bright future for Los Angeles and to secure it she must fight and win the battle of the pres ent. Tndolence and sloth, lethargy and supineisess must be shaken oft*. If she would be free she must strike the blow for freedom. No city need hope for prosperity if without those laws and regulations which when enforced and obeyed se cure order, health and the encouragement of trade and com merce. The officers of a city, no mat ter how sincere in the right and ener getic in the discharge of their duties, cannot make her an object of pleasure to visitors and a pride to her citizens, unless sustained and supported in every measure designed to secure the great est good to the greatest number, by the whole people. No city will in crease rapidly in population and wealth with one or morre of her most important elements of prosperity bound up and controlled by a few citi zens for their individual agrandize ment. The right to supply an inferior article of gas or an impure and inade quate quality of water should not be perpetually invested in a corporation or company to the exclusion of others who stand ready to furnish a better and purer article in abundance and at less cost. The common weal should be the common object and no scheme should be permitted or maintained that has for its purpose the enrich ing of the few at the expense of the many. I.os Angeles has suffered and is now suffering in wealth, name and fame through the inconveniences which she has entailed upon herself by unwise and, as the Courts decide, unlawful contract-, which promised advantages that have never been re alized. How long these blights to her prosperity and advancement — these exorbitant expenses to her citizens and checks to immigration—will be endured, rests with the people. They have it in their power to free them selves from the incubus now weighing them down, and if they do not exer cise that power, the consequences re sulting from a right so to do will rest upon themselves. It is the duty of the citizens of Los Angeles to elect municipal officers who will recognize themselves the servants of the people and not the instruments of private in terests —officers who will legislate for the city, and not for half-a-dozen citi zens. If the municipal government is placed in the hands of representa tive men —men of integrity and enter prise—who will act as a unit for the public good and as a unit apainst pri vate speculation, Los Angeles will soon become a city of which visitors will speak in terms of praise and a city whose prosperity will be in pro portion to the many natural advan tages with which she is surrounded. Proposed New Road to Panamint. Gentlemen who are familiar with the country lying to the northeast of this city report that a good wagon road may be constructed between Loa Angeles and the Panamint mines at a comparatively trifling cost. They have been over the ground and are confident a direct road from here to the new £1 Dorado may be built which will shorten the time now occupied by teams in making the trip at least four days and save the expense of shipping to Spadra by rail. The desert to be crossed is about seventy miles in width, and hitherto it has been sup posed that the entire stretch must be made without water, or only that car ried with the teams. This is now found to be a mistake. According to report a good spring of water has been found on the edge of this desert, a lake or well is known to exist fifteen miles out on the desert; a low place, where water may be had by digging a few feet is discovered between the lake and the eastern boundary of the desert and just on the eastern edge there is another spring. These discoveries re move the hitherto almost insurmount able difficulty of crossing the desert with heavy loaded and consequently slow moving teams. The Chamber of Commerce will hold a meeting this evening to consider the propriety of immediately building this road, and we hope both the report on the practi cability of the route and the action of the Chamber will be favorable. Sounding the San Joaquin. Stockton, -October 9th.—The U. 8. surveying party began sounding the San Joaquin river to-day, with Lieut. J. H. Wheeler in charge. THE "PRESS" ENTERPRISE. —— J I A Truthful and Caustic Letter rrMi Col. Hodff. <n Which Who May will Find a Lesson on Ingratitude. Dditor Herald: My attention hM been called to an article in the Herald ofthe 3d inst., entitled "Stabbed in the Back," which I have read with much interest. Having been for over three months actively engaged with Mr. Johnson and Prof. James in pre paring material for the Illustrated Press, and having been on intimate terms with Mr. Johnson, with whose plans and objects I was quite familiar, I feel It a duty as well as a pleasure as he is now East perfecting his work —to add somewhat to your just and generous article referred to above. IT IS WELL KNOWN That for years past Mr. J. has worked faithfully and effectually as a citizen of Santa Barbara to induce itnmigru tion to that point and make it a suc cessful and desirable resort for invalids from other States and countries. Iv this work he has been successful, and Santa Barbara is now improving a3 never before. Mr. Johnson is a man of enlarged views, and many months since, in considering the capacities of Southern California, he became fully impressed with the idea that what had been dove for Santa Barbara could be done with the whole of Southern California, with its beautiful climate, its rich soil and varied productions. Filled with this idea, for many long months he studied the subject in all its phases, revolving plan after plan in his mind, how and in what way Southern California could become known to the world and be settled up with an active, earnest and stable pop ulation, who would develop its re sources and assist to make it what it must in time become, one of the most beautiful and PROSPEROUS COUNTRIES OP THE EARTH. He finally decided upon tho plan which has heretofore been fully ex plained in the columns of the Herald and other papers that saw the grandeur of the plan and its undoubted success if carried out as contemplated. But in order to succeed in the enterprise which is destined to acid many mil lions to the wealth and many thou sands to the population of Southern California, money was needed to carry on the work, and this Mr. J. had not. It became necessary for him to appeal for assistance to those who would be benefited by the work—to large land holders, to bankers, merchants and business men of all kinds, and espe cially to the Press of Southern Califor nia. This appeal was met by a.noble response, and Mr. Johnson went on in good faith, sparing no expense and trouble to make the work complete in all its parts, with the intent to do lull justice to each and EVERY PORTION OF THE COUNTRY REPRESENTED. Professor James and myself traveled in company by private conveyance over every portion of the southern counties, more than 1,500 miles in all, and took 226 photographic views, fully writteu up with descriptive articles explanatory of the views taken, the soil, productions, climate, and in truth j every fact necessary to give a full and complete knowledge of the country. The cost to Mr. Johnson up to the close of Professor James' and my own labor, was about $3,000— to "which must be added thousands of dollars for engraving and much other necessary work. But a small part of this sum has been paid by those who promised assistance, and from jealousy, envy or other reasons, several papers are now, I learn, making an effort to break down the whole enterprise, ruuin Mr. I Johnson, and thus for long years re tard the growth and development of the southern counties. lam thankful that the Herald is true to its pledges, true to the future of the south, true to the noble few who stand by Mr. John son in his great work. To the charge of partiality, etc., made against Mr. J. in reference to his lecture and exhi bition at San Francisco, I have to say that IT IS WHOLLY UNFOUNDED". / know that a much larger number of views were taken in Los Angeles and San Diego counties in proportion to the amount of money pledged, than in Santa Barbara county, and that the descriptive articles were more lengthy and carefully written, as Mr. J. gave special instructions so to do. If he took up more time at tho San Fran cisco exhibition in speaking of Santa Barbara—of which I have doubts— than any other counties, it is easily accounted for from the fact that it was his first lecture on the subject, and it was perfectly natural that in his lirst lecture he should speak of places to him the most familiar. Again, the work for Santa Barbara was lirst com pleted, and a large portion of the whole is yet to be completed in New York. Tlie whole work will comprise a series of lectures of six or more, and no just criticism would apply to one lecture separate from the others. It will be seen at a glance that such crit icism would be unjust and unworthy a true and honest critic. Permit me, before closing, to say that, haviug tlie full confidence of Mr. Johnson in this work, J know that his object is to develop A 1.1. OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Alike, and that from San Luis Obispo to San Bernardino aud San Diego each and every point and place has had its full share of attention from Mr. J. and his assistants, and that Los Angeles, the central point now and in all future time, has had its full share of attention, giving it far greater prominence in the work than entitled to in proportion to the amount raised to assist in tho work. I hope that those citizens of Los Angeles county who have made pledges will fulfill them at once, and that many others will see the necessity and importance of doing so. The cost has been far in excess of receipts, and unless those interested take hold of the matter in earnest much of the work will never be com pleted. Money should be raised at once and the work pushed though. Out-lots, rubbish, dogs aud cats, or even good-will don't pay the great expense of this great work. The pro jector of the work is so tenations that he will finish it up even though it ruins him; but will a generous public per mit this? T hope not. Yours, Ff. C.

In place of these arms the Adjutant-General states that the authorities have beeu put iv pos session of a quantity of comparatively worthless Belgian rides believed to belong to citizens of New Orleans. To-morrow's Picayune will contain a specilic and duly authorized offer on tlie part ofthe fusionists to accept the proposition made by Kellogg, iv his address, namely to test the question of the Louisiana State Government by a canvass of the actual returns of ail parties, and to abide by the result.

General Bangs, Superintend ent of this branch of the postal service, also took part in the informal discus sion. It is confidently believed that ull matters at issue will be amicably and satisfactorily arranged without further serious difficulty. The railway Presidents will embody their views in writing for the consideration of the Department, and meanwhile Mr. Scott i ussures the Postmaster-General that he will do everything in his power to I secure rapid transit for the mails and ] increased facilities of the postal car service.
