CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY NOV. 5, liTL The Los Angeles Water Company lias commence fj suit against the HBR- Al.n Publishing Company for libel, claiming damages in the sum of SL!.>, --000. There are various opinions aa to the object ol the Water Company in Commencing the suit. Some suppose that they wish to determine the truth or falsity of the assertion that Mr. IlK.vrnnYowns the Herald: others that it is an electioneering trick intended to crush out the HERALD, and still others are uncharitable enough to believe that the company bave gone into Lite liquor business and really wish an investigation of the water works. Old Line Whigs. An honorable old political party, were the old line Whig*, Though tlead, they yet live. They were In ad vance of all other jwlitical parties in their day, and were in reality a pro gressive party, and in their ranks were found a band of the most en lightened statesmen of tho last gener ation. A few of these old worthies are yet living, calm and serene. They look on the present political muddle with the quietude of impartial ob servers. They are generally well posted in regard to all the political changes of our Government, and it is with the greatest pleasure they point to the principles they advocated, in their day, and which the present par ties are now contending for, as the only hope of the Government. Of one thing they boast (of which we arc not certain) "that among the hosts of men who lu-ve disgraced the name of Americans by giving or receiving bribes in ollice, taking back pay, and tilling their pockets by means of tbe Credit Mobilier, there |is not to be found, in all that vast crowd, the name of an old line Whig, who had attained to any prominence during the existence Of the Whig party." If this be so, we shall have a veneration for that old party we never bad be fore. A glorious tiling it would be for the American people, if tlie Lord would visit the valley of dry bones und resurrect that old party. Not Parallel Cases. Under the head of "The Two Fran chises" the Express uses the following language: "If the Mayoralty light is between Bkauduy andSAUKTii, as is claimed, we cannot see that there is anfr •uliranta&fl mi either alila Tlio former would represent a water fran chise as amenable to objection as that of tlie old company, as they both claim to be contracts of a permanent character." For BABICRT should be written Tiffany, but of that no mat ter. Mr. Tiffany represents the Los Angeles Water Company which claims to own the exclusive right to lay down water pipes and to furnish water within tho corporate limits of this city. Mr. Beaudry obtained from the Council the privilege of con veying water to a portion of the city to which the Water Company had never laid their pipes and refused so to do. But here is the point—and it is a very important one—of dissimi larity between the two parties. Mr. Beaudry does not claim an exclusive franchise. He is willing that the Los Angeles Water Company shall lay down pipes side by side with his own and sell or give away tlie water. Further than this, Mr. Beaudry does not wish or intend to compete witli a single rod of pipe that the company now has in tlie ground. The facts of the case are that the Lob Angeles Water Company claim the exclusive right to run water on every block iv the city but neglect to exercise the right. Mr. Beaudky claims the right to convey water to portions of the city where tlie Company have not couveyed it, but at the same time lie admits the right of any one to lay down pipes by the side of his own. Thus it will be seen that the parallel ' of the Express is no parallel at all, and like all its other arguments this one wJfl not hold water. The Question at Issue. The question which will be decided with the closing of the polls on the evening of December 7th is one not difficult to understand. Divested of all sophistry, glamour and verbiage, it simply amounts to a contust between the people and less than a dozen citi zens. It is a contest which shall de termine whether the city government shall pass to the control of the major ity of the voters and taxpayers or be once more resumed by the clique whose supremacy has been almost un interrupted for more than a score of years. This is the whole matter in a nutshell. If the majority of the voters of Los Angeles are satisfied with tho present management of the city; if they think a little wooden sewer, less than three hundred feet in length, is worth $1:7,000 of the people's money; if they think it is right to issue thous ands ot dollars worth of scrip for no one knows what, and of which even the stub ends of the checks cannot be found; if they think the vast revenue raised by taxation and tho sale of the city's lauds has been carefully and judiciously expended; if they think they have all the street, sidewalk and sewer improvement*, that could have been made for the money; if they think no more or better public buildings could be had without an increase of taxation; if they think unlawful special fran chise claims should longer Might the city: if they think the city should be held to tho strict letter of B contract while the party of the second part habitually and systematically violates its part of thecompact; if they think tlie city's progress and development should ho retarded through claims of vested rights, by which the claimants prevent others from making Improve ments that they themselves refit c to make; If they think the prosperity of the many should be sacrificed to the interest of the few, then the policy of the Xxprta* is right, the ring will tri umph, Mr. TIi'KANY will he elected, the people will go on paying heavy taxes, and Los Augeles will retain her poor sewerage, her muddy streets and her dilapidated sidewalks. The Elections. Tiie returns we have received from tlie Saltern elections which took place on Monday and Tuesday are meagre, but indicate decisive results. In Lou isiana the Conservatives or Democrats have swept the State, and thus the people administer a severe rebuke to the miserable policy of tlie Adminis tration iv maintaining iv power the KELLOGG faction. New York aston ishes us. Governor Ilrx is popular and Ii is record is good. We had ex pected that he would bo elected while tbe Democrats would elect tlie re mainder of the State ticket and a majority of the Legislature. Tlie re turns tell a diti'erent story and report the election of Tilden, tlie Demo cratic nominee for Governor, by 40,000 majority. Perhaps the one item of news from these elections that will afford tlie most universal pleasure is that anuouncing the defeat of Ren. Butler. He will not figure longer iv Congress. The indications are that tlie Democrats have made immense gains everywhere—so great that In the next House of Representatives the Republicans will, for the first time in years, find themselves In the minor ity. What is the cause of this great change in political sentiment? will be asked by many. There is but one an swer, which is that tiie policy of the Administration toward the South is a failure and the President's ambition for a third term is exceedingly obnox ious to tlie people. The De Young-Napthaly Case. Judge Stanley made a new order on Saturday In the case of Charles De Young, which reads as follows: "Good cause appearing and existing therefor, although the said cause or causes have not been made to appear by the oatli or affirmations of any witness and are based only on verbal communications addressed to and relied upon by the of 11. 1.» uou.t ,\u ti -1 i.. ;it lw oril vrail that the case be continued for the term and be resubmitted to the next Grand Jury of the city and county of San Francisco." It will be remem bered thai. DeYoug was presented to the late Grand Jury on a charge of an assault to murder B. F. Napthaly and the jury ignored the complaint. On the 3th of September, the day the jury reported, Judge Stanley referred the complaint to tlie Grand Jury on the Court's own volition. Alexander Campbell, counsel for De Young, ob jected to the order on the ground that the information upon which the Court acted had not been judicially presented to it, and therefore the Court erred in re-submitting the case; also, that the order was defective, be cause it should state the causes upon which tlie court based its action. The motion to set aside the order was de nied, and the counsel then moved that the same be modi tied. After hearing the arguments of Campbell and Dis trict Attorney Ryan, tho above order was entered as of September Gth.— S. F. Bulletin, Oct. 31. Railroad Accident. Reno, November Ist.—The passen ger train of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, which arrives here at mid night, met with a serious disaster last night. As it was coming in at a full rate of speed it struck two flat cars about a mile south of town which had rundown the side track and partially across the main track, completely de molishing the two Hats and the en gine. The engineer, Tom Clark, and fireman, John Webster, received very painful but not serious cuts and bruises. The passengers were jostled about considerably, but fortunately none were hurt. A Man Killed. Virginia City, October 31st.—A man named Morrish, a native of Cornwall, England, mot with a fatal accident at the Chollar mine this morning. He went down in the cage with two other men, but was not suf ficiently quick in jumping oil* on the level before the cage again started. He went to jump out, but the cage commenced to ascend and he got caught between the cage and the beams and was smashed to death. Nevada Election. Han Francisco, November 3d.— The Nevada election passed off quiet ly, but no returns have yet been re ceived. Probably no satisfactory re turns can be received to-night. San Francisco, November 4th.— The latest news from Nevada indicate the re-election of Bradley for Gov ernor, and the Sharon Legislative ticket. Fatal Recounter. PIOOKB, November 3d.—Last eve ning a difficulty occurred between Jus. King and Jas. Gleason. Pistols were drawn and several shots exchanged. King was mortally wounded and died In less than a half an hour afterwards. Gleason was severely wounded but will probably live. King was a na tive of New York, aged thirty-seven years. Stabbing Affray. Silver City, November 2d.—A man named Wm. Blamen was stabbed by his brother, Thomas Shimon, at Logan villo, two miles from here. At last accounts the wound was not ex pected to prove fatal. It was done in a drunken row. ( Latest Telegrams. EASTERN. Election Returns I lie btntrMti Win V.\ er>-tilltif.

The Conservative State Committee regard the election of Moncuie, State Treasurer as certain. . Seven Parishes heard from includ ing New Orleans, give Moncuie over 14,000 majority.

Tho election was quiet and peaceable. John McEnery." Won Her Way. [Winona (Mich.) Correspondence of Chicago Tribune.] I found hero a. widow lady—a Mrs. George Peasly— at work in a marble shop with a number of men. She is cutting grave-stones, taking them in the rough, the same as the men, and is getting $3 a day and puts in as much time as the average of men. She has a number of children. As a. short sketch of her history may be en couragement to other lone women, 1 give it as follows: When her husband died she was not able to buy a head stone complete, but bought a mar ble slab in the rough and finished it, and it can be seen standing at the head of his grave, near the village of Pendereon, Minn. She then carved some work and took it to a marble-worker in the city of Minne apolis, and told him she was a widow with a fumily of children and wanted work. The dealer examined the work, said it was good, and that he would give her work on two couditious— first, she should promise not to work for any other dealer in the city; and secondly, shu should promise not to open business on her own account in the city of Minneapolis. fcjhe said she would agree to this if he would agree to keep her in work all the time. But this lord of creation would agree to nothing of the kind. She went into St. Paul and there got Work without special agreements. Finally she came to this elty, and is now in the employ of Ed. T. Bogart. Grading has been linished east of San Lorenzo, which completes the line of grade for fifteen miles, except the Sau Lorenzo and Aptos bridges. To-day the first installment — thirty tons of T rail —will arrive from the city. It was brought via Panama par steamer Arizona on her last trip. Other shipments will follow in regular order until the Tokio arrives, when the consignment of all the iron needed will be completed. Track-laying, we are informed, will commence as soon as sufficient iron to lay ten miles ar rives.— Santa Cmz .Sentinel, October SUt.

When the building of tlie reservoir flrst commenced, it was intended only to have a holding capacity of about a million and a half gallons, but the plans were after ward changed and the newly finished reservoir will have a capacity of be tween three and four millions of gal lons.
