CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
WEDNESDAY NOV. 11, 1874. In its issue of last evening, (lie Water Company's organ admits that it does not know why that corporation with a capital stock of 1810)000, the slutrcm of which aroquotedin the mar ket at from fSO to $So each, does not pay a cent of taxes. Tt la whispered on the streets that the ring have thrown Mr. Tiffany overboard nnd Win try to beat Mr. Beafory by concentrating all their strength on Mr. Sabichi. This is unkind to Tiffany and unfortunate for SAUieitr. Governor Bradley has been re elected Governor of Nevada by 2,300 majority—more than double that of bis first election. Even Nevada —the rotten burrough -is able to appreciate the value of a good and thoroughly honest man—when his opponent is a man of only moderate means. The Visalia Democrats tired one hundred guns in honor of tho recent victories of their party in the-East. If Democrats have been using their victory - celebrating money only for that purpose, they must have a con siderable fund on hand. Tt has been a long time since they had occasion to draw on it. The Express says we aresomething in-lawto the Water Company. We might retort by saying that the self boasted Republican organ is some thing by right of purchase to the Dem ocrats who secured its support for their candidate last year, but knowing our little cotemporary to be morbidly sen sitive on that point we will not allude to it. The Oakland News thinks it sounds ridiculous to call Sharon's success in Nevada a Republican victory. As the majority of the members of the I.eg islature elected are Republicans and as they were elected on pledges to vote for Sharon for United States Sena tor, we don't see how It could be called anything else buta Republican victory. The way In which it was obtained, however, is the way the Republican party has traveled to destruction. If the will of the Democracy of Cal ifornia is embodied in the expression of their papers, Senator P. A. Roach of San Francisco, chief editor of the Examiner, is the favorite candidate of that party to succeed Newton Booth. Those of our Democratic ex changes that have yet expressed their preference for the Gubernatorial can didate have done so in lav.or of the gentleman named. Mr. Roach is popular with the masse for the reason that he is known to be a thorough honest niau and because during his long public and journalistic career he has always been ou the side of the people. If the State is to have a Dem ocratic Governor it will be difficult to find a man who will be more general ly acceptable to the rank and file of all parties than Senator Roach. • THE Democratic majority in the House of Representatives is now con ceded to be 73. What will they do with it? They may use this majority as the stepping stone to national su premacy, or they may make of it the millstone that shall sink the Demo cratic party until it is drowned in the muddy waters of corruption wherein now lies the corpse of the Republican party. The present majority it is true will give the Democracy but a nega tive strength, the Senate and Presi dent being against it, but it is a strength which, while it cannot force the enactment of just pleasures, can yet prevent the passage of had ones. It may check aud defeat such swind ling schemes as the Credit Mobilier and it can Investigate those of like ilk that have bad the sanction and encour agement of Congress heretofore. What the Democrats will do with their ma jority is what Ihe people arc eager and anxious to know. How to Light the Streets. The Hkrald office is lighted with gas manufactured by the Union gas machine. The gas is of a first rate quality, giving forth a pure, white light, much superior to the ordinary coal or brea manufactured article, which costs in Kan Francisco $4 and iv this city $7 50 per thousand feet. The gas made by the Union machine costs less than $2 per thousand. Since the lighting of the 111 kald otlice, one week ago, several of these ma chines have been ordered for private residences in this city aud some ten or fifteen others Mill be ordered as soon as the parties become satisfied of tho great superiority of tho Union. These machines are automatic and are by far the most complete, cheapest and most convenient apparatus for furnishing light 1 hat science has yet ottered this benighted world. A lurge number of private residences in San Francisco, Oakland and Alameda are lighted by the Union gas machine, and up to this time no complaint has been made or accident occurred. They are the best and most economic means for obtaining good light avail able to the masses. Hut our purpose iv writing this article is to make a suggestion to the people of Los Ange les. Our street-lamps are not lighted and it seems that at the ruling rates for coal gas, the municipal exchequer will not permit Hie lighting of many of them, lntlii- einciajjcney apii as a matter of economy, would il not be sV good plan to light the streets with a Union gas machine? A two-hundred light machine will cost In San Fran cisco about $1,200. This machine will light two hundred lamps—more than are ut present required—through a tVo inch main. Tiie main would not cost many thousand dollars. Tho machine once up, the main laid and connections made, the city would be handsomely lighted with gas costing less than $2 per thousand foot. A Liberal Gentleman. Ttis a favorite argument with those individuals whe are ■training every nerve to defeat Mr. BRAt'OBY, that his public spirit nnd liberality only presents itself when an enhancement in the value of his own property is lia ble to follow. We have taken some Utile trouble to investigate the truth «f this charge and find that it cannot be sustained. We will eitea few of the many instances where Mf.BEAU dky has given property and expended money for the public good: Tn 180s be purchused the Ballestras tract—a vineyard -through which he opened Center, Howard and Ramirez streets. These streets are (iffy feet in width. On them he built six bridges, which together with the land occupied by the streets lie gave to the city. He pur chased atracl of land lying Northwest of Sixth street and through this land he opened streets some sixty and some eighty feet wide. The land for these streets did not cost the city a dollar. We shall not particularize but if so disposed we could show where he has expended thousands of dollars in grading streets by which the city was greatly benefited, and for which he has never asked the lax-payers to re imburse him to the amount of a single dollar. His method of selling lots on the monthly payment plan lias ena bled hundreds of families to secure homes who could never have pur chased lots on the cash down princi ple practiced by the parties who are now going beyond the confines of truth for arguments to defeat his election. It is a fact well known to every well informed citizen that Mr. Beaudry has always been and is now a liberal minded and enterprising citizen and no unprejudiced voter will deny but that the city's progress and develop ment would have been greater had she possessed a few more'such men. The Wisdom of Toleration. If, as some philosophers hold, the human race la growing weaker, the evidence is also equally strong thai it is growing wiser anil something hetter. Perhaps no people 111 the world pos sess stronger qualities for adapting themselves to circumstances than they of the United .States. Certainly no people :iru more liberal in their own views or mure tolerant of the views of others. Only a few years ago the na tion was divided. A civil war such as the world bind never before beheld raged with demoniac fury. To-day how different! Tiie soldiers that then met as deadly enemies are to-day neighbors and friends. A great party that for years bus swayed the Govorn mentis overthrown, wrecked, crushed out of existence between the rising and setting of the sun, and business, national and individual, moves on as serenely as if the will of forty million people had remained unspoken. But It is among theological teachers and the converts to creed and denomina tion —a class as remarkable for intoler atfcmaa zeal in the denunciation of antagonistic faith—that we notice the growing wisdom of toleration. The spirit of religious persecution is rap idly giving away to a feeling of pious unity, opposing faiths are realizing that good may come out of Nazareth. Ministers of different creeds change pulpits, and the Methodist divine preaches God and morality to a Pres byterian congregation. Christian charity is beginning to exist in fact as well us in name. A .Sunday or two ago, iv San Francisco, a Con gregational minister, a Presbyterian clergyman and a Jewish ltabbi assist ed in the installation of a I'niversali.st preacher. After this the millenium. Hunting for Himself. The ludicrous spectacle of a man looking for himself and suffering the keenest chagrin ut failing to lind him self, was exhibited on the Union Pa cific Railroad not long ago. An East ern-bound emigrant train stopped at Rock Creek station for breakfast. One emigrant strayed away, and the lirst section of the train started without him. He reached the second on time and managed to get away. His friends in the first section missed him and were seized with a dread that he had been killed. The conductor tele graphed to the second section to look for him and bring him or his body to Laramie. The passengers turned out readily to aid in the seaoh. Foremost among them and displaying a terrible anxiety, was the man for whom they were looking. Ho hunted for the miss ing emigrant with a zeal which could only be accounted for by the fact — unknown to him—that he was look ing for himself. During thu whole day und following night the search was continued, the unconscious cause of it suffering deeply to think that he had been lost. "When he reached Lar amie tiie idea never occurred to his friends that the railroad employees might still be looking lor the missing emigrant, when one bright individual startled the crowd with the remark that our hero had been looking for himself and had failed to lind himself. — CJticayo Tribune.

New York, November 9th.—-Upon retiring' from the Brooklyn City Court Room to-day, Judge Fullerton visited the I', s. Court building and tiled the reply to Miss Proctor In her libel suit. Tiiedocument is very long. Moulton admits that Miss Proctor was the lady referred to in connection with the scandal, but that he fell himself co erced by a combination of clrourn stances to make the statement which Is deemed libelous; thai after BeeCh er's statement, it became a matter of self-dense lor Motillou to make public his version. The civil suit of Tilton vs. Beecher came up this morning before Judge Reynolds in the City Court of Brook lyn, which was crowded wiMi specta tors, including many women. Tilton was present With bis counsel, Judge Fullerton, Wm. A. Reach, Judge Mor ris and Roger A. Pry or. Bcccher was represented by Tracy and Shearman. Tiie case was called and Judge Morris announced that plaintiff was ready for trial. Shearman objected to trial being commenced before the appeal bad been heard on an order issued by Judge Neilson and asked for delay, SO that Certain papers necessary in t lie case should be printed.

President of a Telegraph Company Write* a Sharp Letter to President of the V. S. A dispatch from Sew Orleans dated yesterday says that a very sharp letter to the War Department lias been written by President Orion, of the Western Union Telegraph Company, demauding why, in time of peace, their wires were cut. The matter has been referred to General Finery for a report. Emery some days ago insti tuted inquiries, but to-day lie detailed (leu. Henry a. Morrow, by order of the Department, to proceed there and make special report in regard to the circumstances. I\ Senator Nye on Ihe Third Term. Chicago, November 7th.—A New York special says ex-Senator Nye of Nevada has been interviewed on the subject of the third term and the re sult of the late election. He thought that the President had not thought much about the third term until the newspapers began to talk of it; that be is now determined und when be considers the proper time lias come, will speak out against any attempt to overstep a long-seated custom and es tablish as doubtful a precedent as this would be. He is guarded in talking of the late elections, Tho I,ruse ol' the I riiukllii Line to the Atlantic and Paeilie Telex raph Company. New Yoke, November 7th.—The announcement from Boston this morn ing that the Franklin Telegraph lines have been leased to the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Company lor ninety years causes quite a flutter among those dealing In telegraph stocks. The annexation or lease is highly com mended by business men and is con sidered an advantageous one, espe cially to the stockholders of the Franklin Company. FOREIGN. I com Over ili<- WiUi'r.
