CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
ITKSDAY DEC. 8, 1874. Tub Stockton Leader —Lac it a Dr. Force Gordon's paper - which by the way, Is the only real live paper in Stockton, lias been enlarged and oth erwise improved. We are pleased to note this evidence of the Leader*t prosperity and hope it will continue to grow and prosper until its dimensions exceed those of a blanket and its finances enable Mrs. (louuoN to es tabllsh a large bank. The election yesterday passed off quietly. There were one or two small skirmishes with fists but they lasted only a moment and were promptly quelled. The saloons Were all closed, aud only those familiar with the back ways and byways could obtain a drink for love or money. The excite ment was inteuse and the streets were crowded from the opening of the polls in the morning until a vote could no longer be made useful. The main fight was on the Mayor and the next important struggle was for Marshal. Both sides worked steadily all day. We do not think agreatdealof money was used, and what was spent' Was in vested prior to the day of election. The law was generally observed and the election as orderly as could be de sired. After the Battle. The struggle is over and the people are the victors. Probably a more ex citing election has never transpired in any city of California than that which took place in Los Angeles yesterday. The campaign has been bitter and acrimonious. The whole struggle was for the Mayor. Of the four candi dates—Beau dry, Sacristk, Tiffany and Sabichi —the lirst named was the only one who might be regarded as the friend of the people. Major Sa- CRISTE though a worthy gentleman and highly respected, did not enter the campaign until too late to secure the support of any but his personal friends. Both Tiffany and Sapichi were recognized as the candidates of the exclusive franchise corporations who have by their exactions become both oppressive and obnoxious to the citizens. Mr. Beaudry is a man of the people and from the opening of the campaign it was apparent to all discerning men that he would be elected unless unusual and unfair means were used to defeat him. As the battle grew warm the most dis honorable and disgraceful as well as totally unfounded charges were made against him by both tlie Star and Ex press; but as these libels and slanders appeared they were promptly nailed by the Herald, which is generally read by the English speaking portion of our population, and by the Groniva, which is the able organ of the Spanish speaking population. No man was ever more falsely or maliciously slan dered than Mr. Beaudry by the 77.r --prcss, but the people have manifested their contempt for that venal and dis reputable sheet and their confidence in and esteem for him by electing him Mayor by a majority which may ex ceed and certainly will not fall far be low 400. The Herald has made a strong fight for what it believed to be for the best interest of the people. It made this fight against the combina tion of capital and tlie old schemers who have controlled the city for the last twenty years and it is proud of its victory. The people of Los Angeles will now manage their own municipal affairs for a time at least. Vale the ring ! Organizations, Unions and Rings. Organization, and union, in the good old days of patriotism, meant strength and safety; but the latest edition of dictionaries gives a definition which reverses the old style. Organization now means monopoly, and monopoly means oppression, and oppression means slavery, and slavery means the degredation and ruin of all its subjects. There are in existence organizations of ancient mould which have passed over the hills of thirty centuries, now venerated for their antiquity and loved for the wisdom they impart and sustained by their own inherent strength. Like the Egyptian pyra mids, they stand as monuments of the granduer and uobleness of ancient races. The peculiar strength of an cient organizations lay in their nega tive qualities —non-interference with your duty to God, to your neighbor or yourself. With these negative quail* ties an organization can be made strong and useful; but it la a pecul iarity of all modern organizations to bind men and undermine their liber ties. The trades union, art union, la bor union —in fact, all the rings and companies formed during the last quarter of a century are formed upon the principle of iClfishnesp; and we here take the g' ound boldly that all sellish organizations are a curse to their members and a curse to the coun try at large. Shameful Outrage. A gentleman recently arrived in San Franeiico from Kern county, G. W. Furness, relates the following dreadful story: About six months ago a man named William Payton, from Illinois, with his wife, a fine-looking woman, and a boy, settled upon a Government tract iv Kern county, about twenty-five miles west of Sumner, the present ter minus of the railroad running toward the Panamint country, and about five miles dfTthe line of the road. Last- Friday morning, Payton, with his boy, took his tfiantland went to a place about live np lea distant t'toui hi* residence, Idkving hit- wlt,> at home. On his return in tho tveniag liis wife was missing. The nearest neighbor was nearly a mile from his residence, butPayton sounded the alarm as soon as possible, and search was immedi ately commenced for the missing wife and mother. On Sunday afternoon; she was discovered in almost a dying 1 * condition in a ravine about six miles from her residence, and from her was learned the horrible story of her suf ferings. About an hour alter her husband left home on Friday, live Mcx iea ris or t 'alifornians rode up to t he house and asked for a drink of water, and as Mfs. Payton entered the house to procure it two ofthe Mexicans dis mounted. When she returned she was suddenly seized and bound hand aud foot, placed on the horse of one of the parties. The whole party then dashed off at tall speed making Cora ravine in the foot hills some miles dis tant. After about three hours ride, tlia party arrived at a place which gave incications of being an old camp,and where there was .some extra horses and a quantity of provisions. Here the party dismounted and com menced a hellish ogre, which eontiti: ued until Sunday morning. The nar rative of the sufferings of the heirless woman, who had been dragged from home to gratify the unnatural lust of these demons, cannot be described,and the wildest imagination cannot con ceive of a more awful crime than was there enacted. Not once, merely, but repeateply did each one of these fiends in human form subject their weak, struggling victim to a nameless out rage, and In addition "vhc waff beaten with their fists and lashed with their riding whips, until the blood flowed down her body. At an early hour on Sunday morn ing the scoundrels broke camp, and heading the poor woman down the ra vine upon which they had been lo cated, gave her several "cuts" with switches, started her off'in one direc tion, they riding ofTin another. Foi several hours she wandered blindly, staggering and stubling along, until at last, almost famished for want of food, and nearly dead from tho inju ries she had received, she fell in a faint at the point where her husband discovered her in the afternoon. The poor woman was taken to the nearest residence and received all the care and attention possible, but on Mon day morning, when Furness last saw her, it was very doudtful whether she could survive the injuries she had re ceived. The country in which this unparalcllod outrage was perpetrated is sparsly settled, but all of the availa ble forces of the region were soon afield in search ofthe perpetrators of the'iirime. The roughness ol the re gion and the small mass of the pursu ing force are such, however, that but little hopes are entertained of captur ing them. Pacific Coast Items. Seven buildings are already up in Lompoc. A match factory has been started in Truckeo. The reported rain fall this season thus far at Pine Flat,is twenty inches. Seventeen marriage licenses were recorded last month in Santa Clara county. The salaries of tlie teacliers or tlie State Normal School amount td.1,800 per month. Tlie St. John quicksilver mine at Napa made a shipment of eighty flasks on Tuesday. The citizens of Petaluma have al ready taken $150,000 worth of stock in the Sonoma and Marin Railroad. The rainfall in Marysville up to this time has been only 5.26 inches, but enough for agricultural purposes. W. H. Davidson, who was shot by Joseph Randolph at Sherman Island, on Tuesday, died on the following day. About lifty ofthe employes in the Department of Yards and Docks, at Mare Island, were suspended Bunday evening. On Monday morning last a man named J. V.AbcII was shot and slight ly wounded in two places by Mrs. Jennie Camp at Truckee. The citizens of Inyo and San Ber nardino counties have been invited to subscribe in aid to a railroad to Cerro Gordo. Rev. Dr. Jacobus of Alleghany Cily, Pennsylvania, is visiting Santa BaiS bara for the purpose of recruiting his health. The San Diego Union estimates that by the close of the season the shipments of honey from that county will reach 500,001) pounds. Of comb honey, 350,000 pounds have now been shipped. D. O. Jrluut of St. Helena, has just bought from Henry McCormick of the same place, a tract of about 1,000 acres of land—principally grazing—in the hills west of town. The price paid was $5,000. The committee of the Grangers who have been examining for the best points on the Straits of Carquinez for the erection of warehouses, have, ac cording to the Vallejo Chronicle, se lected South Vallejo as the site for the northern side of the straits. This is what the Vallejo Chronicle has to say about the late races: " Tlie millenial era of honest horse-racing does not appear to have yet dawned. For days before the race there was a casting of shadows before, a murmur of events to come, 'as travelers hear the billows roll before they reach the sea.' The result was as predicted, to a letter." -— i ,' • ■ >n » i —. . . Go to the Identical, No. 38 Main street, for your new pocket handker chief and suspenders.

Sacuamento, December 4th.—This evening, shortly after dark, tho body of an unknown man was found in the river just below the city limits.

In re gard to the San Francisco overdraft, Kufus Hatch said to a time* reporter tliat it amounted, November Ist, to $87,000, but has since been considera bly reduced, and was caused by heavy purchases of coal. To the same re porter a paragraph on the forthcoming statement of the company'- affairs was exhibited, showing that the re ceipts from I'reiv.ht alone, September, October, November, of the present year amounted to $075,000, against §800,000 the same time last year.

New York, December sth. — Rufus Hatch has published a statement rela tive to the recent allegations of Mr. Sage in regard to the cause of his (Mr. Sage's) resigning the Presidency of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. Mr. Hatch states that an investiga tion has disclosed the fact that recent reports-detrimental to tbe company originated with the President, and that it was inconsequence of this that Sage was obliged to resign. His resig nation hail, says Hatch, been asked for by the Board previous to the invest i j*ation, but he had refused to tender it. The statement also denies all the alle gations of Sage relative to (he condi tion of the company. Hatch adds: "In regard to all the statements that have been made,from whatever source, in regard to the business of the com pany, 1 would say that the company is iv a more prosperous condition than for several years past." A full state ment of the att'airs of the company is being prepared and will be submitted to the stockholders in a few days. I*reMl<lc!ic>* ol'the Senate.

It makes ho specific recommendation, but desires Congress to give the mat ter attention. It endorses the Indian peace policy and the Civil Service Ke lornis, but considers the support of Congress essential to the carrying out of the latter. It does not allude to Utah matter*.

Utah News. Salt Lark, December 4th.--The District Court this morning overruled the motion to strike out the answer of the complaint in the cause of Lootnlfl vs. V. P. K. It. The suit is for $25,000 damages for alleged injuries sustained by plaintiff in being put off the cars for playing three-card motile. Arrangements are being perfected to connect the Portland, Dalles and Salt Lake Railroad with the Utah Northern on Snake river, instead of connecting with the Central Pacific. This will insure a continuous line of narrow gauge till the way from Port land to Ogdcn and eventually lo the southern portion of Utah. The Grand Jury to-day presented twelve Indictments and adjourned sine die. The Court, ifl dismissing the ju rors, complimented them upon their efficiency, saving that If mercy and leniency would liol teach the people of Utah a lesson, the utmost severity and rigor would be resorted to. Several hoys to-day accidentally dis covered rich gold diggings 40 miles easl of the city. The Identical still continues its thriving trade. The reason for this Is that all goods sold at the establish ment prove just us they are repre sented. From Idaho Territory.

Wells, Fargo & Co.'s express box, which left Winnemucca, Nev., on the 28th of November, has failed to come to hand, having been lost or stolen somewhere on the road. The Idaho Legislature convenes at Boise City next Monday. The Demo crats have one majority in the Coun cil, witli about a stand-off in tlie House. The weather here for tlie past month has been one uninterrupted succession of rain and snow storms, but it is clear, warm aud pleasant this morning. Tlie Nevada and Northern Telegraph extension to Fairview and Empire be ing completed it is in full blast. Work is being pushed on the South Mountain line, and it will probably reach the latter point in a week or ten days.
