It would seem that the gentlemen , who manage what is known as the ring, realize that they cannot defeat ; Mr. Beaudry unless they are able to induce the people, or at least a por | tion of them, to believe tho Bebnard i slander—a fabrication which the card of Colonel Smith nnd the record In the case of Dcs Autki, vs. Amat con clusively proves to bo false from be ginning to end. But this man Ber nard is a large stockholder in the Los Angeles "Water Company, and his hatred of Mr. Beaudhy is so great that he will say anything and every thing and perhaps,swear to it, in order to injure him. The Star of yesterday morning contains a long string of words which, but for the fact that we are told In the caption Is the- legal as pect of the question, no one would un derstand it to be anything but a chapter of misrepresentation trans ferred from the editorial rooms of the Express to the columns of its co worker in the cause of the ring. The rea! legal aspect of the Bernard lot question has either been carefully avoided or purposely overlooked by the gentlemen who arc laboring so assiduously to blacken the character of a man who they in one column as uert Is the owner of many broad acres and a very rich man, and in the next accuse him of stealing, or attempting to steal a lot which the alleged owner admits was of such small value that he never took the trouble to And out whether he owned it or not. With all thinking men this fact will at once dispel the charge of unfair dealing sought to be fastened upon Mr. Beau dry. But the main feature in the case to which we call the attention of this community, is tho question of veracity between Bishop Amat and this man Bernard. The Star is our authority for saying that Bernard asserts that until he was informed by Mr. Beaudry he was not aware that he ever had any claim to the lot in question. This it is worth while that tho candid reader should bear in mind, Bernard asserts that ho did not IvLIOVV ll'- ..,..!». l.nA .lain. to any part of tho tract, while tho record shows that he had years beforo given Bishop Amat a parole title, which is a verbal promise for a deed, to his lot in the College tract. The record is confirmed by the Bishop. If any further proof is re quired to show that this man Ber nard has falsified himself in his eftort to slander Mr. Beaudry, we point to the map of tho tract which it was proposed the city should deed to the Bishop, in which was marked a lot hearing tne name of Bernard. We pass over the fact that the city recognized Bernard as the owner of the lot, by marking it in the map of the tract she deeded to tho Bishop. We shall make no comment on the action of Bernard in first giving the Bishop a parole title to the lot, then denying that he ever owned it and af terward selling it to Mr. Beaudry. The legal aspect of the question be gins and cutis with these facts; First, no matter whether Bernard had ever received a deed to the lot, the city ad mitted his right to such deed by mark ing it as his property in tho map of the tract donated to the Bishop. Sec ond, Bernard did know he owned the lot and he claimed it, or he would not have given the Bishop a parole title to it; and, third, Bernard knew that the deed he gave Mr. Beaudry was for property for which he had prom ised a deed to Bishop Amat. The Common Council could not have been misled as to the validity of Ber nard's claim to the lot, because his claim was clearly admitted in the map of the College tract. The motive of this man Bernard in deeding property to Mr. Beacdry to which he had long before given Bishop Amat a parole title, is found in the statement that he had had trouble with the Bishop—it was spite work, and done through a desire to annoy and if pos sible injure the Bishop. The motive which prompts him to now deny that he ever owned the lot, and assert that Mr. Beaudry induced him to make 1 application for a deed under false rep resentations, is a wish to defeat the election of Mr. Beaudry and thereby defeat the wishes ofthe people in the appointment of a Board of Water Commissioners and thus secure a con tinuance of the extortionate rates charged for water by the Los Angeles Water Company, in which company he (Bernard) is a large stockholder. This is the legal, and in fact the only aspect iv which right thinking men can regard the Bernard falsehood. The Issues of the Contest. We doubt if tho effort* of those who are so anxious to deceive the people ns to tho real Issues which enter Into the election next Monday, will be success ful. There is too much at stake for cither side to be greatly deluded. The struggle is between tho people and a few individuals who, having amassed great wealth through what they term their exclusive franchises, are deter mined to leave no effort untried to re tain the power through which they have so long levied and collected from the masses an immense annual reve nue. There are laws compelling tlve appoi ntment of a Hoard of Water Com missioners, whoso business It is to both fix the rates for water at a fair price and to see that a good nrticle Is furnished. The services of an honest Board of Commissioners would save tho people of Los Angeles thousands of dollars per annum In the cost of water and In doctor's bills. It is to prevent the appointment of this Board or se cure the appointment of one that will act as they direct, that the advocates of Messrs. Sabichi and Tiffany are now spending money freer than water. It is to secure an enforcement of the law aud to obtain tho justice which the law guarantees, that the people— the property-holders and the tax-pay ers—are rallying to the support of Mr. Beaudry. This is one feature of this contest, and it is an important one. The Herald has no quarrel with the Water Company, nor is it desirous of depriving that corporation of a single legal privilege it possesses, but we do desire and shall insist that it comply with the law regulating all such cor porations in the State. We object, and the objection is sustained by the peo ple, to giving this corporation the un conditional right to close public streets, build flumes over and through private property, occupying and holding city lots and damaging a large amount of individual property with a reservoir constructed for the sole pur pose of holding nearly seven acres of city lots for almost a generation. The Herald does not recognize the jus tice of t hi-so t.hintra, and if the people are true to their own interests and true to themselves—they will on Mon day say to this corporation "You have rights and in the maintenance of them we will protect you, but we also have rights and you must not and shall not invade them." This water monopoly assumes the position that It is immaculate; that whatever it does or does not is right, and no man or commuity shall say it nay. Hence when tho Herald intimates that an improvement might be made in the quality of water our citizens drink, this puro institution gets up a show? er of indignation, rushes off and com mences suit against the Herald for $25,000 damages. A part of the com test on Monday is to decide whether this Water Company, that nothing must be said against, or the people, own the city of Los Angeles. Another of the issues to be settled on that day is whether tho Water Company has a light to prevent a citizen from con veying water to portions of the city in which it has refused to furnish it. The election of Mr. Sabichi or Mr. Tiffany aud the ring's Councilmen will be followed by an attempt to take from Mr. Beaudry tho privilege granted him by the city to convey water on the high lauds and thus de preciate tho taxable property of the city many hundreds of thousands of dollars. These area few of the main features which will present themselves in the struggle on Monday. The peo ple do not wish to deprive the Water Company of a single prerogative, but they shoulo see to it that that corpo ration does not obtain an exclusive franchise to run the city government as well as to furnish the people with water. A Pertinent Question. Editor Hekald: If Mr. Beaudry is guilty of the acts with which the Evening Express now charges him and the proofs of which it claims are on record nnd have been for years, is not that paper more culpable than Mr. Beaudry in not making the facts known long ago, in place of lauding as a public-spirited and liberal-minded citizen the man it now denounces as everything that is bad. Voter. Los Angeles, Dec. '2, 1874. The charges of the Express are false in toto, and none are more fully aware of thoir falseness than the managers of that sheet. The records disprove every charge yet made against Mr. Beaudry and prove the authors of those charges wilful aud malicious slanderers. Until Mr. Beaudry be came a candidate for Mayor and the Express accepted the wages of the slanderer, it could hardly find words to express its praise of him. What the Slanderers Have Done. Editor Herald: I am au old res ident of I ,<»s Angeles, having lived in this city ten years. lam not tbe per sonal friend of Mr. Beaudry, and at the operiMg of this campaign I had no thought of voting for him. But J can- Dot endorse, nor do I believe any other conscientious man will endorse, the course tbe Evening Express has pur sued toward him. We all know Mr. Beaudry to be an honest man, and tbe attempt to brand him as dishonorable by those who know the falsity of their statements and know that their at tacks on him are for tbe sole purpose of defeating his election is, I am con fident, condemned by every honest man in this city. If worthy citizens who consent to becotno candidates for otlice are compelled to submit to tbe vile attacks of newspapers that would slander a woman if paid for their work, we shall soon find it difficult to induce good men to run for office. I shall now vote for Mr. Beaudry, be cause I believe it my duty to aid in vindicating the character of a respect able citizen against the vile attacks and fa Iho assertions of newspapers that have tbe reputation of always being for sale to the highest bidder. AN Old Resident. Los Angeles, Dec. 3. Our correspondent speaks but the sentiment of hundreds of our citi zens. Mr. Beaudby is too well and favorably known to be injured at homo by the foul, malicious charges that hatred and malice have trumped up about him. Tbe people and journals that are now hurling their slime against him have uutii a few weeks ago contributed their testimony almost daily to his worth as a citizen and in tegrity as a man. Mr. Bea itirv will receive many votes on Monday which will be cast for the sole reason that "An Old Resident" will cast his—to rebuke the slanderers of private char acter. PEOPLES' TICKET.
