CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. WEDNESDAY OCT. 14, 1874. In the Oregon Legislature now in session, tlie Grangers have a majority In both Houses. Olr old friend, John t;. Campbell, of Prescott, is one of the Peoples* nom inees for the Legislative Council of Arizona. Of course he will be elected. The twenty-fourth annual commu nication of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons commenced in San Francisco yesterday. The Odd Fellows of San Francisco contemplate building a magnificent new hall. It is reported that the}' will bid $450,000 for the Lick property, on the corner of Fourth and market streets, with a view of securing it for a site for the new hall. It is a mistake that Charlie I)e- LOJfO it not a candidate for the I'nited States Senate from Nevada. He announces himself in the field and expresses his determination to remain there until the battle is over. Char lie is the ablest man of them all. but talent has nochance against money in Nevada. The suicide mania has again broken out in San Francisco. The disease is claiming victims who have money, and they do not leave notes stating that it was all for love. The phe nomena is .puzzling the savans and anatomy students. Why men with money and not in love should kill themselves is a problem that will not be solved those sojourning on this ■ide of the river Jordau. Impecuni osity and unrequited affection are ample reasons for an immediate snuf fling off of this mortal coil and when a man has either one of them bad, he may be excused for putting a period to his existence by putting a pistol to his head; but when men with a full puree and a whole heart do those things, there is something wrong in San Francisco. The Chamber of Commerce last evening referred the petition of \V. B. Caldwell for an appropriation of Sl5O to aid in surveying a route for a wagon road between this city and Panamint, to the consideration of a special committee. We presume the appropriation will be made and Mr. Caldwell directed to proceed at once with the survey. From information already received, it seems almost cer tain that the route Is practicable. Mr. Caldwell has been over the country between here and Panamint a great many times and he is confident that he can find a shorter and better route and one on which there will be no long drives from water to water. He is a man of energy and experience and if our citizens give him the slight assistance asked, we predict that he will locate a direct road to Panamint which will be worth many thousands of dollars to Los Angeles. Wilmington Harbor. A great deal has been said about Wilmington harbor—a great deal in which ignorance, jealousy and disre gard of facts were more conspicuous than knowledge of the question dis cussed. A good many people have decided most emphatically that a har bor could not be made at Wilmington. It is true that these sapient gentlemen do not know much about harbors nor a great deal about anything else, but they spend their opinions as freely as if they were based on a thousand years of experience and a million years of scientific study. The facts of the case are very different from the complexion put upon it by these enemies of Wil mington. Every day's labor"adds ev idence to the mass already accumu lated that an excellent harbor will soon be completed at Wilmington. The rapidly increasing business at the port has caused the railroad company to take steps toward increasing their facilities for moving the freight which passes over the wharf. Tlie propriety and expense of extending their track, by means of a wharf, from its present terminus to deep water. The proposi tion was met by General Boschke, who has a Government contract for excavating Wilmington. Harbor, with an offer to dig a channel fifteen feet deep and of the requisite width from deep water up to the company's wharf for one-half the cost of building the wharf. General Boschke further pro posed to keep this channel the contract depth for one-half the expense of keep ing the wharf in repair. This sort of an otter from an experienced engineer, who is now engaged in dredging in tlie same quality of earth through which the channel is to be excavated, demon strates that the work of dredging Wil mington Harbor is not difficult, and that once the harbor Is completed no serious difficulty in the way of filling up need be apprehended. Fuel. We cannot endorse the opinion ex pressed by a correspondent in the Herald of last Sunday morning to the effect that fuel will become an item of considerable expense to the people of Los Angeles valley, it is true that we have no extensive forests from which to draw, but it is also true that timber may be grown easily and rapidly in nearly every portion of the valley. The willow hedges around farms furnißh a large amount of wood each year, and the stock increases year after year. Other qualities of* timber may be grown as easily and almost as rapidly as the willow. Hut our great and ultimately our chief stock of fuel is as yet comparatively untouched. We mean the brea, of which there are several iuexhaustible mines in the val ley. The gas works in this city are using a considerable amount of brea, and a few farmers are running engines with it. Generally speaking, how ever, the article is not used. In time all of our steam machinery will be run with bres, and we predict that it will supercede coal wherever any consider able amount of heat is required. In point of fact, the valley is better sup plied with fuel than it would be were there no brea deposits and tlie moun tain sides covered with timber. For culinary and other domestic purposes the supply of wood is ample, and will always equal the demand. State Fair Gambling. The opinion expressed by the HER ALD some weeks ago to the effect that too great a proportion of the money ap propriated from the Treasury for the purpose of aiding and assisting the State Fair was used 111 making up purses for horse-racing, is endorsed by a number of otherintluential journals, and it is more than probable that no appropriation of this character will be made from the people's pockets by the next Legislature. The argument that the masses who contribute the funds for slow and possibly often unfair horse-races, derive very little knowl edge or amusement from the trials of speed or the schemes for making the horse lose on -which the uninitiated have staked their money, cannot be controverted. And the other side ar gument that a State Fair cannot be made a success without a speed pro gramme, is not proven to be true. It is probable that the parties who make the most noise and assume the control and management of the State Fair are more interested in the races than any other considerable number who attend the exhibition; but it is very proba ble that if this class did not attend at all, the Fair would be equally success ful and more beneficial to the people in general. \Ve doubt very much if the majority of the tax-payers would, if the opportunity offered, express a willingness to be taxed in support of a horse-race. Suicide in Davisville. DAVIS VIXXE, October 19th.—Jacob Fueg, a Swiss, committed suicide this afternoon by shooting himself through the head, leaving the following letter on the table: Oh, Dear Brother: I must write you the sad account of the tire. The people in this neighborhood thought I set it on fire. I am innocent, and have done no harm. Some persons accuse me of it but, dear brother, I will rather die than insult you and our whole family. Farewell: I remain your own dear brother. My kindest regards to all our kin folks. * 1 die as innocent as a new-born babe. My kindest regards. Your brother." "If you can, come to my funeral." Jacob Ft eg. A Girl Terribly Burned. San Diego, October 11.—Last eve ning Hannah Barrows, aged 14, was terribly burned, while attempting to light a fire iv a stove. Her clothes became ignited, and she ran out into tlie street all in a blaze. H. M. Co vert happoned to be riding by at the time, and he dismounted and attempt ed to smother the flames. He tore her burning clothes from her and car ried her into tlie house. Dr. Fenn at tended tlie Door girl, who is terribly burned about the hips and back. Not much hopes of her recovery. Mr. Co vert burned his hands and wrists in a terrible manner. Pot of Gold Found. San LUIS Obisho, October Oth.—A workman engaged in tearing down an old adobe building, tho former resi dence of a famous bandit, unearthed a pot of gold two days siuce, and suc ceeded in getting it away, and now claims that he was robbed* of it. Va rious speculations are indulged in re garding it, but from what can be learned of tlie workmen engaged with him, there was at least $5,000. More of Those Poll Tax Receipts. Pl.\( kkville, October Oth.—The deputy collector of taxes for this county, returned to-day from a busi ness trip, collecting a hospital tax from seven or eight hundred China men who are employed on the great ditch in course of construction. They all held San Francisco poll tax re ceipts, issued since July by Morgan, Casey and Eckstein, and a few by Ro sener, the latter differing materially from the former. Railroad Completed—Fatal Accident. ' Salinas, October 10th.—Tho Gran gers' narrow-gauge railroad from Monterey to Salinas City, is at last completed, and will be in running order in a few days.

Third Terut Question. Patterson, (N. J.) October 10th.— Secretary Robeson addressed an im mense audience at a mass meeting last evening. In the course of his speech he said that neither the ad ministration nor its chief would ever be found outside of the Republican party nor acting contrary to theestab tablished traditions of the country. The latter remark was understood to refer to the third term, and was vocif erously applauded. After the meet ing Secretary Robeson said that Pres ident Grant had no idea of a third term and only avoided giving official expression of his opinion ou the mat ter less he should seem to attach to it too much importance. A False Statement, New York, October 12th.— El Cro nistct, a Spanish paper published in this city, prints a card from Admiral Polo de Barnabe, late Minister to Washington, with regard to the story of the session of Porto Rico to Ger many, which originally appeared in the Freeman's Journal. The Admiral says that the dispatches which were incorporated in the story have no real existence. It is likewise untrue that he had sent in his resignation a 9 Min ister Plenipotentiary from Spain to Washington, since the cause of his leaving that ottice was that the Min ister of Marine required his services in the Navy. The Admiral concludes by saying that the whole story is a net work of absurd and contemptible cal umnies. Dastardly Attempt to Injure Trottlug Horses. BkooKlvn, October 10th..- A das tardly attempt to kill some trotting horses was made by some unknown person yesterday, previous to the race at the Prospect Park grounds.
