CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
WEDNESDAY NOV. 18, 1574. The British wheat crop Is up to the standard average—thirty bushels per acre—and (he prospects for the next crop are very tine. This is informa tion of value to the California wheat growers, as it indicates the prico of wheat next year. JL. .-81-i B* Wk have been Odd for the last eight years that the defeat of any portion of the Administration party, would im pair the public credit. If there wss any truth in this electioneering trick the public debt is badly damaged now. We await a shower of splinters. .. . i... ... .—— WILL Mr, Hkaiukys paper letl cs whether Mr. Rkaupuv claims a one-eighth interest In the Antonio A Vila tract, located In "Sonora?" — Krjyrrxs. If we desired information on this point we should apply to the record. But we will answer one silly question by asking another: Is it true that Mr. SAKti nt does not own any land in China and is it true that he does not own any land anywhere? People who write many letters will bp glad to know that Postmaster-Gen eral J SWILL says there is no truth in tho report that he intends recom mending an Increase of the present rates of postage. He thinks that let ter postage should be reduced as soon as the expense for carrying the mails can be reduced. The Oakland Neivs thinks Govern or Booth would be defeated if nomi nated for President by a third party. That depends on the third party which just now appears to be without a local habitation and a name. Our new Sen ator will go into the Senate without a party or political coustituency, The San Francisco Bulletin has re duced its price to twenty-five cents per week. The Bulletin is well worth that sum, and the people are indebted to the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Company for the reduction. Give the Associated Press the old monopoly of the news dispatches and up would go the price of those papers that com posed the monopoly. "L. Siebold, City Assessor," de nied that twenty-three persons had called to pay their taxes against whom the Assessor's books showed no assess ment and demanded their names. We gave him the names of twenty four persons and firms, copied from the City Clerk's record. To this "L. SiEBOLo, City Assessor," rcplico that some of the names are those of per sons not in business when he made the assessment and others those of persons that have no existence. The first excuse is simply absurd. If they were not in business, why did they call to pay taxes ? and the phenomena of names getting on the City Clerk's record that have no owners, is a little too remarkable for credence, even in this age of wonders. Having obtained extra pay for a poor job, "L, Siebolu, City Assessor," should be content. He is exemplifying the adage which defines the kind of client a man has who defends his own case. Business Qualifications. The last and newest name applied to Mr. Beaudry by those employed to malign him is "Land-Grabber." As the gentleman has never acquired a foot of land for which he did not pay the price asked by its owner and for which he holds legally made out and properly signed deeds, the intended opprobrium ofthe appellation falls to the ground and the animus of the at tack appears to be based on the sim ple fact that tho gentleman named is the possessor of some means. This, then, is the extent of his offending. By care and industry he has acquired a competence, and because he has done so individuals in the employ of the ring denounce him as unfit for the duties of a public servant. We doubt if this objection will serve the purpose for which it is urged. It is, we believe, generally admitted that the ability of a man to attend to his own business is pretty strong presumptive evidence that he has the capacity and energy to discharge the duties of a public officer. If this rule holds good, the difference between the qualifications of Mr. Beaudry and Mr. Sabichi for Mayor is so great as to be beyond compari son. If Mr. Beaudry had no interest to serve save his own, he would labor for the advancement and prosperity of Los Angeles, because being one of her wealthy citizens her prosperity would to a certain extent be his own. But we do not admit that Mr. Beau dry is a selfish man. His acts prove him the contrary. He is entitled tothe name of a public - spirited, liberal minded citizen. He has accomplished with his own money a work which the Express admits will prove of in calculable benefit to our city. If Mr. Beaudry is wealthy, he uses his wealth for the good of all. For want of other argument, we presume the Express will continue to urge Mr. Beaudry's property as a reason why he should not be chosen as Mayor, end we presume before the campaign is over it will urge voters to support Mr. Tikkany and Mr. Sabichi on the ground that though they have not suc ceeded to any great extent in the way of managing their own business, the Water Company are willing to chance either of them in the management of theirs. Another Gem from the "Express." Looking back Over Vie files of the Express, we find inntiDiieralde editor ials 4rhleh*eern to have been written for the sole purpose of showing what a valuable citizen Los Angeles pos sesses in tbe person of Mr. BKAi'Mtv. It appears almost incredible that a paper which a short time ago coufa hardly find language to express its high opinion of a man, should now fill its columns with abuse and detrac tion of that same man. On the 9th of September of last year the Express contained the following editorial: The borers on Beaudry's artesian well experiment north of the city are now down 345 feet. They are passing through a species of shale, and those experienced in well boring are san guine that water will be struck. What a splendid thing it would be lor Los Angeles if Mr." Beaudry should suc ceed iv his magnificent project! The public spirit and enterprise of this liberal aud energetic citizen would be stow on the people of Los Angeles one of the greatest of boons. With a flowing artesian at the range where he is now boring, the fact would be surely demonstrated that all our hill lafids could be irrigated with wells and make them immensely valuable. While Mr. Beaudry would reap a rich reward for his liberality and adven turous spirit, the city would bo en riched by the enhanceing of her prop erty millions of dollars. Let us hope that the endeavors and princely outlay of Mr. Beaudry will be attended with success, for none deserve it better than he. Well, the artesian well did not throw out the coveted stream, but the "liberal and energetic citizen" did not despair. He was resolved to give the people of Los Angeles this "great est of boons," aud though he left off well digging, he wearied not in well doing. His "adventurous spirit" would not rest under the failure and with that " liberality" so highly com mended, he commenced spending his money in another direction, but for the attainment of the same end — water on the hills. He succeedetl. The water is on the hills and "the city is enriched by the enhancement of her property millions of dollars. But alas! alas! — the Express now denounces this " liberal and energetic citizen" for a "land grabber," a "monopolist," a "selfish individual." The water works which were to enhance prop erty millions of dollars," it now wants crushed by injunction, and the "lib eral and energetic citizen" whose "great public spirit and enterprise" it so commended, it denounces as un worthy the confidence of the commu nity. Alas and alas! The Examiner calls the editor of the Post "an amber colored little rodent" —A little yellow rat. • Epitaphs to Order. ThePhiladelphia. ZmcLqp* easily loads the press of the country in the number and quality of its obituary notices. The column of "Deaths" is always well tilled, and to the announcement in the usual form a piece of poetry is frequently appended, which is some times a stanza from a familiar hymn, but more frequently an original elegy written by some one who is kept for the purpose in the office of the Ledger. Occasionally, however, the elegiac bard finds his resources exhausted by the incessant drain upon his intellect and his emotions and then he some times makes the same device serve several mourners. On last Wednes day, for example, the following notice stood at the head of the column of deaths: "On thetfth Inst., —, widow ol thu Jale , in tho 49th year of her age. " This languishing bead is ut rest. Her thinking and aching are o'er, Henmlct, iminovnble breast Heaved by affliction no more." This was soothing to the relatives and friends, no doubt; but they must have experienced some slight mixture of emotions when, about three Indies further down the column they read the follow ing: "On the Ith inst., , aged 28 years, 1 months and 20 days. " His languishing head is at rest, His thinking and aching are o'er, His t|Uiet, immovable breast Is heaved by affliction no more." The coincidence of experience is cer tainly remarkable; but when the tear rilled eyes of both those households chanced to fall upon the following no tice, only about four inches dowit the same column, they must have had a new realization of tho poet's meaning when he said, or came very near say ing, a touch of sorrow makes the whole world kin: "On the sth lost., after a lingering illness. , wife of , in the 67th year or her age. " This languishing head is at rest, Her thinking and aching are o'er, Her quiet immovable breast Is heaved by affliction no more." It is true that there is some slight variation in the form of these elegies, for which the parties who paid for them are, we trust, duly thankful; but it must be owned that the "think ing and aching of these three families has been surprisingly alike. The pos sibilities of this quatrain were not, however, exhausted by their triple use of it. Tt is evidently a chef (Veeu vre of the Ledger bard and he means to make the most of it. Accordingly, last Friday, he returns to his mutton with the following suggestive version of the same ditty: "On the 7th Inst., .wife of , in the 47th year of her age. " Hi* languishing head is at rest, Her thinking and aching are o'er, Her quiet, immovable breast In heaved by affliction no more." The italics are ours. Could the peaceful termination of a life-long struggle be more pathetically told ? Death of an Official. San Francisco, November 16th.— George W. Branch, County Clerk of Stanislaus county, died in this city to-day of heart disease. His remains will be taken to Modesto this evening. The Bakersfleld Courier says: Now that the railroad has reached us we must expect its benefits to he in some degree alloyed the by tho influx into our hitherto peaceful and moral com munity of more or less of the depraved hoodlum element of San Francisco. —* * « The Ordinance Department Is hav ing constructed, back of its building on Mare Island, a platform on which to use heavy guns in testing the force and yelocity of powder. Latest Telegrams. EASTERN. Colin ol tlic A(luiiiil<iirßllan. Nkw York, November llth. —A special from Washing ton lo the Graphic, detailing the programmf of the Administration dining the com ing session of Congress, says that the President will not change the person al of his Cabinet, and will not budge from his position respecting the early return to specie payments. An aim of the Administration will bp to favor public Improvements on the seaboard, lakes ami Mississippi, to provide for unemployed workmen. There will undoubtedly be an increase in the army and navy. Bailer Will Retire from Political I.lie. Nkw Yokk, November 14tMi. A Boston special gives an interview with General Butler on his plans for the coming campaign, lie says he reserves the expression of his views on the political situation for the halls r>fCongress. Vice-President Wilson denies t«»t he over attributed to him [Butler*) the defeat of the Republican party in Massachusetts. Butler says lie hits no intention of entering the lists as Senatorial candidate or for the Governorship. It is not true that he has been tendered a foreign misssion, neither is there any truth in the ai mers that he intends to form a new po litical party in Massachusetts, lie intimated, though not very positively, that he intended to retire from politi cal life, ut the close of this present term of Conguss. I lw Eloping- t'rii'-i Arr«sted. Baltimouh:, November 14th.—The ex-priest, Oerdeman of Philadelphia, was arrested to-day by a detective on a charge of larceny and embezzlement just as he was about to embark for Europe on the steamship Ohio. He was taken to Philadelphia to-night. Xf.w York, November 14th.— Father Gerdenmn, the absconding priest, publishes a card in the Sun stating thatfhej has left the Catholic Church, rejecting all its peculiar ten ets; that he was lawfully married on the 4th instant to Miss Wittlich by a reformed minister of Jersey City; that the money used by him in speculations was his own. He adds: "The money I took along with me did not quite reach $3,000. I for my part look upon this sum as rather a small reward for more than years of labor, besides over $:>OO of what I took were actually per quisites, etc. One thousand dollars of it my sister can have at any time for all her hard work of over ten years, and she has never taken nor never would take any remuneration in money." He repeats what he wrote to Bishop Wood, that he will send all his savings during his life toward paying the debt of the church —not as a debt he owes to justice, bnt as a pen alty for his folly. He announces that himself and wife will sail for Europe this afternoon. Tbe Arkansas Trouble, Washington, November ltitli.— Telegrams to the Republican to-day from various parts of Arkansas, repre sent that Smith's adherents continue arming, and show a determination to maintain their position. Smith's Government will be organized either at Helena or Pine Blull", where the Republican element largely prepon derates. The Garland Government has made at least one hundred arrests thus far, including the editors of Re publican papers, on charges of trea son. Tho election of members of the Legislature, under the Garland Gov ernment, at whieli ?in liopiihliou nu voted, took place October 13th. An election under the Smith Government, in accordance witli the Constitution, at which no Democrats voted, took place early iv November. Little Rock, November 16th. — Press dispatches from Washington, re porting large assemblages here on ad herents of Smith, aud hundreds of ar rests by Garland, are untrue. There has been only one arrest thus far, that of price, of the Republican. He was discharged to-day. The most perfect quiet prevails throughout the State, and there is no talk about Smith es tablishing a government at Pine Bluff, or elsewhere. He is still hid. Election Frauds in Florida. Bagdad, Florida, November 16th.— There has been great excitement here the past few days on account of al leged frauds attempted by the Board of Election Canvassers. The Board made returns electing a Radical can didate for the Legislature by a majori ty of two votes when the citizens of this and the adjoiuiug county arose in arms and demanded a recount, which resulted in giving the Conservative candidate twelve majority. lfow < tiinese Women are Imported.
