CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
SATURDAY NOV. 28, IBT4 THE " striker* " of Beaudry nrc, In s gsn pnl way. availing themselves of the lawyer ap >logy.— Etprcm. It appears to the people of this city as if the "strikers" of the ring were availing themselves of the libcler's pol icy. The Ityrcss thinks that not to im agine the possibility of Tiffany's election is to admit that the moral sense of Los Angeles does not prepon derate. Our little cotcmporary has made a mistake and inserted "moral sense" where it should have written "gas and water companies." Thf. firpress yells for Tiffany, but avoids all allusion to or attempt at apology for that gentleman's going into the country with the Grand Jury of which he was Foreman and a bucket of whitewash to whiten the Water Company's reservoir—a job as far out of his duty as his neglect to notice the complaints against the houses of ill fame was within it. Returns to its Slander. The extremity to which Iho ring is reduced could not bo more clearly ex posed than by the return of the Ex prea* to the Bernard falsehood. Tiie man, Bernard, who, it may be well to remark, owns one hundred or more shares in the Water Company, and consequently fears the appointment of a Board of Water Commissioners, as the law directs, permits himself to be made to say in the interview out of which the little organ manufactured its entire stock in trade so far in the campaign, that lie did not own a cer tain piece of land at a given time, yet the papers in the case show that he had sold or given the lot to Bishop A MAT before the time stated and that he sold it to another party after the date mentioned. These facts place him in a position which renders any and all statements he may make on this or any other matter valueless in the estimation of all honorable men; while the card of Colonel Smith, the attorney of Mr. Dcs Autels in the case of DesAvtels vs. Amat, shows that neither the city nor Mr. Beacdry were in the slightest degree concerned in the final disposition of the lot. Still the Express is able to find nothing to urge against Mr. Beaudry except the story of this man Bernard, in which he convicts himself of an act that ought to be investigated by the Grand Jury. The pertinacity with which the little organ sticks to its nailed down and branded falsehood is evi dence of two facts : First, that it would libel lli« ansml G*ußtEL_if «r> directed and the libel furnished by the ring; and, second, that being unable to find another Bernard and lacking the ability to invent another slander, it labors assiduously to earn the price of its infamy by setting up day by day its dead and putrid slander and crying out to every passer-by, " See our little bautliug ; don't you think we can make it live if we keep up a steady application of lie ?" The Grange and Immigration. We have never had a great amount of faith in the ability of the different immigrant aid associations-that hare from time to time assumed the task of adding to our population. They have always proven expensive, and for the most part, futile experiments. But a movement has been inaugurated late ly which will, we think, accomplish the work so often undertaken, and as often left unfinished. The California State Orange has turned its attention to the subject oi* immigration and at its last regular meeting organized an Immigrant Aid Department and ar ranged for the maintenance of an agency in San Francisco. Mr. JoaiAH Earl, the agent appointed, has opened an office and assumed the dis charge of his duties. He commences with the compilation of The Granger* Guide to Homes in California. This is a monthly publication, of which 160,000 copies are to be issued. There are now 20,000 Granges in the United States, and it is through theso that the Guide will be circulated. It will be seen at a glance that the Grange afford* facilities for distributing the Guide greater than could be obtained by any other means. Each subordi nate Grange will become a distribut ing agency by which the information compiled by Mr. Earl will reach the class of persons desiring it. The Guide contains 14 pages twelve by sixteen inches in size. Its pages are filled with information relative to the State, carefully and accurately com piled. A marked feature of the work is its avoidance of all exaggeration and partiality or prejudice for or against any locality or section. The initial number of the work is now out. The circulation is not to be confined to this country, stereotype plates will be sent to England, and under the name of The Great Republic, thousands, per haps, millions, of copies will be scat tered over Europe. The farmers—the Grangers—arc the owners of the land and they are the people interested in drawing within our State that class of immigration which will be most ben eficial to the country—laboring men and women—and the Grange is the proper medium through which to dis seminate the information that will in duce the coming of those men and women. Thanks to the facile and well iufornied pen of Mrs. Capt. William Moore, of this city, Eos Angeles valley is cor rectly and graphically described in the tirst number of the Guide. Trouble in the Ring Camp. The ring machine Is not running smooth of late, and though tiie old engineers arc busy tightening a Bill here and oiling a bearing there, Iho machinery still creaks and groans and manifests a most decided inclina tion not to work. Tho ring oil-can seems to have lost its difficulty-re moving power, and though frequent consultations have been held by those old engineers who were wont to boast that they controlled Los Angeles, they have as yet failed to lind what is the matter "mit der machine." From what transpired at the Satur day night meeting of the old engi neers— which, by the way, was largely attended hy the stokers and serfs of the Gas and Water Companies—it is quite evident it lias never been the purpose of the ring to support Mr. Sabichi for Mayor any longer than it became apparent they could not com mand a sufficient number of votes to elect him. Tbe old engineers who govern and control the members and retainers of the two monopolies moved Mr. Saktciii forward to deter mine the strength of Mr. Beaudry; but in so doing they never stopped to consider what would be tho extent of the injury sustained by Mr. SABICHI by this skirmish in force. The move was made and resulted in serious loss to the ring, while it developed an un looked-for strength in Mr. Beaudry. Something must bo done. Mr. Sabi chi •would fill the bill, hut nothing was moro plain than that he could not be elected. Too much ring had killed him. Mr. Tiffany would be equally available, were ho once in the Mayor's seat; but the fact that he neglected his legitimate duty as Foreman of the Grand Jury to go up anil whitewash the Water Company's reservoir, could not but expose the ring's collar about his neck. In this dilemma, it was proposed to drop both SABinir and Tiffany, and nominate a well known Main-street grocer; but that gentle man, ou consultation, declined the proffered honor, witli the bit of infor mation that no man known to be the nominee of the ring could be elected to any office in this city. Then the old engineers consulted again and finally it was resolved that Mr. Tif fany is and has been from the outset the actual candidato of the corinor antic monopolies; but, said the chief of the old engineers, the manipula tions of the monopoly forces are poli tic enough to know full well that their open advocacy of any man for Mayor will be the signal for his defeat; there fore, while it is our purpose to elect Mr. Tiffany —if we can —we must keep him in the shade, and pretend to be for Mr. Sabichi. The chief sat down amid a small shower of weak applause from the serfs, but the associate engi neers did not see it so plain. They reminticu me cniel tnat promises msn been made to Mr. Sabichi and his few retainers which it would be diffi cult to fulfil and they warned the chief that Mr. Sabichi knew the ring too well to attach the least importance to their promise that if be would drop out of the Mayoralty fight and work secretly for Mr. Tiffany, they would elect him to the Assembly next year. Another difficulty has been encoun tered by the close corporation in their work of transferring the Sabichi re cruits to the service of Mr. Tiffany, which is,Uhat twelve hundred dollar purse made up by Mr. Sabiciii's per sonal friends and which is said to be held by a Main street firm to be used in aid of his election. The makers of that purse do not care to have it ex pended in the service of Mr. Tiffany. Mr. Sabichi himself does not cheer fully accept the terms now offered him. He fears the ring is losing its power and should they keep faith with him— a probability in which he has no faith —they will lack the influence to redeem their promise. Thus the mat ter stands: The Gas and Water Com •panics dare not say outright to Mr. Sabichi that they cannot elect him to tho Mayoralty and they dare not ad mit to his friends that Mr. Tiffany will answer all thoir purposes as Mayor because they have tacitly admitted by asking Mr. Sabichi to withdraw that the moment it is publicly known that Mr. Tiffany is the ring's choice the few supporters he now has will drop him anil vote for Mr. Beaudry as the only candidate for Mayor whom the Gas and Water Companies cannot use. "La Cronica" on the "Express." The last issue of La Cronica, speak ing of the little evening sheet's attacks on Mr. Beaudry, says: " The Express, being satified that its invention in re gard to the Bernard lot did not have the desired effect, and having all its statements proven false, has given birth to another canard about a parcel of land of one Mr. Avila, In which it makes another effort to damage the reputation of Mr. Beaudry. We are the opinion that ho who once tells a lie is liable to tell others, and conse quently we would be very foolish to trouble ourselves about this second muddle. Tbe Herald has already settled that for us, and we now expect tbe Express to invent something new. Thejuryinthe case of the People vs. Herring & Cassey, publishing tbe late Local Option paper in San Jose, were unable to agree upon a verdict. It will be remembered that the charge made was to the effect that Key. Mr. Hatch was carried home on a shutter. Says a Grass valley paper: "Any one who thinks Grass Valley is not a good tow n for peaches must get rid of the idea. At the residence of Gale Compton there are several peach trees in tho lot. This year the family have had plenty of peaches continuously from July 4th to Nov. 17th. Tbe late tree is the flrst one in town to blos som." Letter from a Workingman. EDITOR Hehat.d: As a working man, 1 beg the favor of a small Space in your paper to address ;i few remarks to the citizens of Los Angeles upon the important topic of the approach' ing election. Now, the prosperity and happiness of a people depend! en tirely upon the purity of the laws by which they are governed and their sound and healthy administration. In some countries the power to make the laws is vested in the hands of a few, while the many are left with no othw chance but to obey such laws, which they have not the least voice either in making Of executing; hul-this is not the case with us, in this much-favored land, as all classes of men in this re spect have equal rights. Hence, if we mis-apply this power within ns, we are left with only ourselves to blame. If We want good laws, wo must elect men of sterling integrity to enact them; and even then, if they are riot handled by upright and honest men, we are left like the boy with his step mother, who said that "the bread was good, and the butter was good, but what he found fault with M as the way the worthless brute spread it." We are now on the eve of our muni cipal election, and it behooves us, as men who have tho common interest of our growing city at heart* to place the right men in the right places, re gardless of any clique or Small faction whose only aim is their own interest and the power to promote it upon the expense of the tax-payers. We have quite a number of candidates in the held offering themselves to serve us who come under our notice in the form of party tickets. Now, all these we should examine and see how mat ters stand with them at home. Have they managed their own affairs With just ice and economy '.' if so, we know how far to trust them With ours; be cause, depend upon it, this is a qualifi cation Which is highly necessary for a public office. In these matters we are too apt to speak in the third person, and say, "they should doit;" but I say "we should do it," because it is not only our interest to do it; but we also have the power to do it if we only would make proper use of our reason and vote. We should pass by such naked allegations as those we see from time to time in that worthless, snarling sheet which like the dog in the manger sneaks out of its kennel every evening with its angry bark at ovrybody outside of the limits of its own ring. Surely this illustrious writer should learn to be more candid and deal more with prin ciples. He will find Mr. Beaudry's character like a piece of good leather; the more he rubs it the brighter it will shine. to how Mr. Beaudry came in pos session of his land I know very little, but this I know, he has and is making good use of it. He not only sells to the public at reasonable prices, but also has been to considerable expense in improving it and at the same time improving the city. The.excavations anil new streets lie has made speak for themselves. Can the slanderer deny this? I defy him. In conclusion I may say that f believe Mr. Beaudry to be a fit and proper gentleman to sit in tiie highest seat of our municipal of fices, and as such I will both vote for him and support him. Yours truly, Veritas. A Remarkable Masonic Incident. The first Masonic funeral thai ever took place in California occurred in IS4H, and was performed over a broth er found dead in the bay of San Fran cisco. An account of the ceremonies states that on the botiy of the deceased was found a silver mark of a Mason, upon which were engraved the initials of his name. A little further investi gation revealed to the beholder the most siugular exhibition of Masonic emblems that was ever drawn by the ingenuity of man upon the human skin. There is nothing in tiie history of traditions of Freemasonry equal to it. Beautifully dotted on his left arm in red and blue ink which time could not efface, appeared all the emblems of the entire apprenticeship. There was the Holy Bible, square and com pass, twenty - four Inch gauge and' common gavel. There was also the Masonic pavement, representing the ground floor of Solomon's Temple, the indented tessel which surrounds it and the blazing star in the center. On his right arm, artistically executed in the same indelible fluid, were the em blems pertaining to the Fellowcraft's degree, viz—the square, the level and the plumb. There were also the live columns representing the five orders of architecture — the Tuscan, Doric, lonic, Corinthian anil Composite. In removing the garments from his body, the trowel presented itself, with all the other tools of operative masonry. Over his heart was the pot of incense; on other parts of his botiy were the bee-hive, the book of constitutions, guarded by theTyler's sword, pointing to a naked heart; the All-Seeing Eye, the anchor and t iie ark, the hour-glass, the scythe, the forty-second problem of Euclid, the sun, moon, stars and comets; the three steps which are em blematic of youth, manhood and age. Admirably executed was the weeping virgin, reclining upon a broken col umn, upon which lay the book of con stitutions. In her right band she held the pot of incense, the Mason's em blem of a pure heart, and in her left a sprig of acacia, the emblem of the immortality of the soul. Immediately beneath her stood winged Time witli his scythe by his side with which he cuts the brittle thread of life and the hour-glas9 at his feet, which is ever reminding us that life is withering away. The withered and attenuated lingers <of the destoyer were placed amid the long and flowing ringlets of the disconsolate mourner. Thus were striking emblems of mortality and immortality blended in one pictorial representation. It was a spectacle such as Masons never saw before and in all probability such as the frater nity will never witness again. The deceased brother's name was never known. Shooting and Murder.
