Tilton announces himself in better
health than at any previous time
within the past ten years. Still THE
ODORE hates HENRY with the cordial
intensity of an earnest Christian.
Tim Continental Hotel, Philadel

number of smaller establishments in
Eos Augeles pay about 5000 per year
for water and don't get it all the time
Oi r San Francisco coteniporaries
are trying to find out which can print
the greatest number of double sheets

The California Alden Fruit Preserv
ing Company have been awarded the
gold and silver medals of the State
Agricultural Society. In noticing
this fact we will take the opportunity
to say that Mr. Geo, B. Davis, pro
prietor of the Alden Fruit Works in
this city, yesterday received a letter
from one of the largest wholesale
grocery firms of San Francisco,stating
that the Los Angeles Alden preserved
fruit was a superior article to that
from any other portion of the State,
and readily commanded the highest
price in the market. The Alden will
open a fine market for all the fruit
grown in Eos Angeles valley.
T. B. Peterson & Brothers, 300
Chestnut street, Philadelphia, publish
this day "The Fair Maid of Perth,"
by Sir Walter Scott, being the
second volume of an entire new edi
tion of the Waverly Novels, now in
course of publication by them, enti
tled " Peterson's Cheap Edition for
the Million of the Waverly Novels."
Each book is printed from plain, clear
type, double column, aud each work is
issued complete in one large octavo
volume, with a newly illustrated cover
on each book, and will be completed
in twenty-six volumes, at twenty-five
cents each, or five dollars for tlie com
plete set. This will be the cheapest as
well as the only complete edition of
the Waverly Novels published in this
country, as it will coutain all the
author's notes, as well as all his last
corrections ami additions. A full set
of the twenty-six volumes will be sent
at once, post-paid, by mail, to any
one, to any place, on their remitting
five dollars to the publishers. At this
low price all persons should possess
themselves of a full °<>t of tho \V«v*»rl v
at once, and we would take this
occasion to advise all of our readers to
make a remittance of five dollars at
ouce, per first mail, toT. B.Peterson
& Brothers, Philadelphia, for the
twenty-six volumes, who will send
them to any oue, at once, free of post
age, on receipt of that sum.
The "Herald's" Prosperity.
The prosperity of the Herald with
in the past eight months is unprece
dented in California journalism.
From almost nothing, the business
lias expanded to the utmost capacity
of the largest and best appointed job
and newspaper ofiice south of San
Francisco. Our steam job presses are
ruu fourteen of every twenty-four
hours, the job-room is always crowded
with work and we are doing more and
of a superior quality of job work than
all the other printing houses in the
city, With new type, line presses,
steam power and first-class workmen,
we are enabled to fill the orders of our
patrons in the best style of tlie art and
in tlie shortest possible time. Of
newspapers alone, there are now
printed on the Herald presses, one
daily, one semi-weekly, two Weeklies
and one monthly. Tlie large Taylor
power press, though capable of throw
ing otf fifteen huudred impressoins
per hour, is taxed to its utmost capac
ity with the large editions of these
regular publications. To meet this
demand upon our press-room, we are
preparing to add another large single
cylinder press to those already in use.
The circulation of the Daily Hmr.vld
is already large — nearly or quite
dogble that of any other daily pub
lished in Southern California—nnd is
steadily increasing. It furnishes all
the news of the day and each issue
contains more reading matter than all
the dailies published in the city. Its
editorials are intended to bo frank,
fair, outspoken and impartial. It is
not the purpose of the editor, nor is it
expected, that his articles will uiewt
the approbation of everybody. The
individual or journal that labors with
the single object of pleasing
everybody possesses neither individ
uality, force or distinctive character.
An honest, candid opinion may not
please and it cannot receive the en
dorsement of all, but it is entitled to
and receives greater consideration and
respect than the non-committal,
shilly-shally bosh with which some
publishers till their editorial columns.
The editor who hews to the line, let
the chips fall where they maj', will
have readers who will not endorse all
or his views, but they will respect his
honesty of purpose aud iadei»cndeut
position. We had rather have half
the world quarreling with our opin
ions than to have all the world saying
that we were wanting in the manhood
and intelligence to have an opinion.
The Hekald advocates what it be
lieves to be right and just and con
demns what In its judgment is wrong
and unjust. Its advocacy or denunci
ation is never equivocal. It is our aim
to so express ourselves that t.ll who
read may understand. The Weekly"
Herald Is conceded to be the largest
and best paper published in Southern
California. Its eight pages are filled
with news and reliable Information
concerning the "New Italy" toward
which the steps ot thousands are now
turned. The circulation of the
Weekly Hkuai.l) now approximates
two thousand, and hundreds of copies
are mailed each week to subscribers in
the Southwestern and Northwestern
States. The circulation is so rapidly
increasing that we are warranted in
saying the next year will enable us to
shew an edition of at least four thous
Cause of Idolatry.
It is a fact universally admitted that
man is a religious animal. The ado
ration of his heart must be bestowed
upon something. There is another
fact quite as well established, and that
is, that each Individual man will adore
that which he believes to be greatest
—.that which possesses most power
&*ud able to bestow or communicate
the greatest good. Consequently the
worship of the Creator has ever been
most common among mankind, be
cause the power to create carries with
it tho Idea of the power to bless, and
to do all things. For this reason
the savage tribes of earth nearly all
worship a great spirit, who they sup
pose controls the destiny of man. It
is an acknowledged principle of phil
osophy that the mind of man is so
constituted that he is compelled by
the very law of his being, not only
to worship that which he considers
the greatest and noblest, but he will of
necessity assimulate his own charac
ter as much as possible, to the charac
ter of the object or being he worships.
"We lay down these as facts, though
stated in the simplest manner possi
ble, which are universally acknowl
edged. With these facts as abasia, we
can very redily discern the cause of
idolatry and trace it through all ages
to the same source. The savage in
his native wilds is less idolatrous than
the more cultivated, or as we term the
more civilized. Tlie reason Is obvi
ous. When he stands upon his native
mountain top and views creation
around him he sees a world teeming
with life and beauty. Tlie scene to
him is grand and there is a conscious
ness within him that declares these
all to he the work of a great Creator.
At once he lifts his heart and pours
out his devotion to that Great Spirit.
From what he can see of the laws that
gv crn-the world he concludes that
this Great Spirit has something to
do with the affairs and destiny of
mankind. This (Stan* OfitmH .'o
acknowledged to be the governor or
ruler of the world, and the character
of the savage is formed by his idea of
the nature of this great ruler. In re
gard to the formation of character the
same principle holds good with all
classes and grades of humanity. As
men or nations ascend in the scale of
intelligence and science their ideas of
Deity change, and the change is in
variably enstamped on their charac
ter. When science takes a material
istic turn, pantheism is the natural
result. The scientists of to-day are
teaching naturalism. Plants and ani
mals, brute and human are taken to
be all one, evolution causing the dif
ference. Plants are endowed with in
telligence and the ape is the father of
man, and all are to end in dust.
Nature la God continuously as the
most, in-most of all life. Will they
not soon plead, " What harm if peo
ple fall clown and worship nature, or
some portion of it, as the heathens do,
and erect altars to gods that can be
seen and known?" This speculative
paganism, if continued, must end in
pagan idolatry. The scientists of to
day have made but few, if any, new
discoveries. The Egyptians taught
very nearly the same materialistic
doctrines four thousand years ago, the
effect of which was seen in the char
acter of the Israelites as long as the
generation which was brought out of
Egypt lived. They were so imbued
with the materialistic views that they
were taught in Egypt and were glad
to give their richest treasures to make
a visible golden calf to fall down and
worship. The invisible, unknown
God of Moses was not tangible; all
the science of Egypt could not com
prehend him. They must have a god
that science could not demonstrate.
They had been taught that the cow
was the superior of all animals and
nearest allied to man, and that gold
was more valuable and controlled the
affairs of mankind more than all
metals; hence a calf made of gold was
the proper object for man to worship.
We can only conjecture as to the first
idol that will grace the altar of the
scientific materialist of this genera
tion. Doubtless gold will enter
largely into its composition.

THE GRANGERS AND THE RAILROADS.
[Continued from yesterday.]
Wf have a railroad running across
tlie country iv the northerly !>:■.rt of
its territory. One is projected am]
partly huilt across the Southern bor
der. Tt is a work of such magnitude
that the prospect of its being com
pleted in a reasonable purioil of time,
if ever, without tha aid of the whole
people, acting through the Severn*
ment. is not hopeful, and t he quest ion
now presents itself to the people and
more especially to those devoted to
farming and agricultural pursuits than
' any other, Is it for the interest 6T tbe
nation, for that of the farmers and ag
riculturists generally, that this assist
ance should be rendered ?
The difference in the climate und
character of the country over whidi
the two routes pass are almost as op
posite as could be imagined. Ihe one,
cold in Winter and hot iv Bummer,
covered with snow at one Beaton and
drenched with rain at another, and
having its requisite number of streams
to carry ort' the superabundance Of
water, which are crossed by bridges
and culverts, continually exposed to
damage by Hoods and heavy rains, tlie
washing away of eHbsnkftlotitsj the
freezing and thawing of tiie road-bed,
together with the greater wear and
tear, cost and delay iv operating a
road of high grades and sharp curves,
are items which amount annually to a
much greater sum than the interest
upon the money expeuded in the con
struction and Stocking of the road.
The 3:2 d parallel route is free from
cold and snow, unexposed to the dam
aging effects from the freezing and
thawing of the road-bed, with minor
extremes of heat and cold. The
amount of rain-fall is Inconsiderable,
consequently but little or no damage
is to be suffered by the washing away
of bridges, culverts or embankments.
No part of the route lias a high alti
tude, but runs over extensive plains,
giving a low aggregate of ascents and
descents and without high grades, the
wear and tear of the road ami the cost
of the propelling power will all be so
much less than upon the present road,
that the rate of freights and fares and
the length of time In transit may be
greatly lessened and still leave the
operating of the road a profitable bus
Most of the delays and expenses
caused by obstructions constantly re
curring upon the northern route, will
be avoided on the more southern one.
From the shores of the Pacific to the
Mississippi river or a maritime port in
Texas, there are but two rivers of
magnitue, both of which would be
crossed far down their courses, which
is of no inconsiderable importance.
The products of the soil can be trans
ported with greater ease and less cost
In proportion to distance in the direc
tion of the flow of the rivers of a
country than in the opposite direc
tion. Thus, a railroad along the32d
parallel, crossing the rivers at right
angles and near their mouths, will
drain the country of its products with
greater ease and at less cost than one
traversing the country near the sources
of its rivers and streams.
While it is undisputed that in tlie
past,railway corporations and specula
tors in tiie Construction ol* railways
Lave overreached the people and the
Government and have unjustly drawn
large sums of money from the people,
it does not follow that for that cause
the Government should henceforward
abstain from aiding und assisting in
pie for their welfare and which, with
out such assistance, must be iiulifi
nitely postponed. Such is not tho
policy that guides individuals. No
man oi energy folds his arms and sub
sides into inactivity because he
has been overreached, swindled
or cheated by a competitor or
employe. It only serves to stimu
late him to greater care and watch
fulness. His experience serves as a
beacon in his future course. Ho, I
conceive, it should be with the people,
acting through their Government. If
in the past they have been de
frauded, instead of supinely turning
their backs toward great and beneficial
enrerprises, they should be only the
more ready to engage in them; as,
from their past experience, they have
acquired a knowledge of the snags and
quicksands which lie in the way and
are better prepared to avoid them in
the execution of similar enterprises.
If those who have been entrusted with
tlie powers of the Government have
been deceived and outwitted in tlie
past, they have that experience to
guide and direct them in the future,
so that they are'better able to guard
and protect tlie interests of the people.
If the people have been deceived and
defrauded by those to whom they have
entrusted the Government, this dere
liction of duty by their agents should
operate as an incentive to stimulate
the people to bestow that care and the
exercise of that sound judgment in se
lecting to whom is committed the
management of the affairs of the na
tion, so as to insure an honest and
eflicient discharge of those duties.
It would be a humiliating fact, if
such should be proven, and one which
would destroy all faith in our form of
Government, that the people are in
competent or unable to select proper
agents to manage the business of Gov
ernment; but I am far from harboring
a belief in the existence of such a fact.
An intelligent man finds no insupera
ble difficulty in making a bargain or a
contract in such a form and manner as
will leave little or no room for decep
tion and non-performance. And what
any intelligent man can do, moat cer
tainly can be accomplished by a hun
dred or more intelligent persons.
There are not wanting among twenty
millions of men a few hundred of
honest, upright and competent citi
zens, who might be selected and sent
into the Congress of the United States,
if such men are not to be found there
at present, who could readily frame a
law, contract or act of incorporation,
by the operation of which this great
and needful enterprise could be ac
complished without much, if any,
risk of the peoples being defrauded.
I believe in the power of tho Grange
organization of the country not only
to secure the aid of the Government
for the immediate construction of this
great commercial highway, but to de
vise and direct tiie mode and manner
iv which that assistance «hall be given,
without risk or prejudice to the agri
cultural, tax-paying citizens of the
