CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
THURSDAY, JAN. 21, 1875. Mr. F. P. F. Temple yesterday, re ceived a letter written by a prominent citizen of Inyo county bkUUug that at least $100,000 gtafijUi of stock in the Los Angeles,and Independence Rail road will be readily taken hi that county. This Is pood new* and ren ders assurance doubly sure that the stock of th« road will be speedily taken and tbe work of building pushed rap idly ahead. Our correspondent and agent to whom bus been assigned the task of collecting information relative to the land and water privileges of the Cuca monga Homestead Association, which will be of value to those seeking infor mation on that subject, writes that he has possessed himself of all the facts, and will forward to the Herald in a week or so a detailed" report of his views and observations. The Los Angeles and Pacific Rail road Company, whose object is to build a road connecting this city with the ocean at what ta known as the Salt Works"; u/o obtaining a large amount of (Subscriptions to the stock. A number of prominent and wealthy citizens are engaged in this enterprise and express confidence that it will be successfully carried out. The road will run diiectly through the lands of the Centinela Company. The rain storm is apparently over and yesterday morning the sun came ont warm and bright. Our rai-i gauges differ, but it is safe to say that not less than ten nor more than eleven inches of rain have fallen in this valley within the last four days. This is sufficient for the present. It has shortened up many long faces, and will add a few millions in wealth aud a few thousands in population to the possessions of Los Angeles county. The farmers now assure us that good crops are insured, eveu though noth ing more than the usual Spring show ers fall. It is probable, however, that wo shall have four or five more inches of rain between this and the lust of April, in which case, Southern Cali fornia will be blessed with her most favorable seasons. The Railroad. Nothing could have been so disas trous to our railroad prospects as a dry season. Grading would have been hard and expensive; the farmers would have been timid and slow to take stock in it; merchants would have complained of bard times and dull business, and stock-raisers would have been in an ill humor generally. But all these gloomy prospects have passed away, and everybody is in a good humor now. The railroad stock will all be taken so quick that there will hardly be enough to satisfy tho people. A half a dozen of our wealthy citizens could build this road and never feel it. But we do not want them to do it. As this is the first permanent and profit able railroad investment that has been presented to this people, we want all to have an equal chance. This Los Angeles and Independence road will pay for its building and equipment in five years. Some sharp business men say it will do it in three or four years at most, but we put it at five years. This is equal to twenty per cent, on the investment. This is much better than loaning mrmey at one per cent, and paying lawyers to search records and draw mortgages and a commission or fee to close tiie mortgage and col lect the money. Almost everybody is making a little more than expenses, and many are putting their money in the Savings bank at small interest. Let them take stock in this rdad and pay it in installments. Anyone that lias $50 on hand can take §500 stock. It will be called in in ten per cent, in stallments and long before the last installment is called iv, the road will be earning enough to pay its own way. We have no idea that over sixty or eighty per cent, of the slock will ever be called for; in which event a man taking $500 worth uf«tock would ouJy pay $300 or $400 for it. This stook will sell for its full value Jong before the road is completed. But we do not want any one to think of selling this stock; keep it. In five years it will be worth twice what you paid for it, and the dividends on a few hundred dollars worth of it will support a fam ily. There is no investment in the world that pays better than an hon estly conducted railroad, in any coun try where there is ordinary business; and there is not a road on the conti nent with such a prospect for business as this one has. If it was finished to day, Panamint alone could give it all the freight it could carry for five—yea, for twenty —years to come. But we are asked why it is that the stock of so many railroads is selling below par. The explanation Is easy. As soon as a road is well under way and the cars begin to run aud money is mado, a few sharp fellows get their heads to gether and begin to cry the stock down; and they have one or more men out buying up the stock at a low figure. As soon as they get the bulk of the stock in their hands they call a meeting aad water the stock. Perhaps there are some who do not understand the process of watering . stock. They do it in this wise: Sup pose a road has been built at a cost of one million dollars. A million dollar's worth of stock has been issued to those who furnished the money to build the road. The road being completed, be longs to the stockholder* Almost any good road will pay twenty-five per cent, per iituium on its original cost. Of course the stock of feuch a road is In demand, and everybody wants it. The owners get together, ou the sly, and raise the capital stock of the company from one million to four millions. Three millions more of stock is now struck off and ..divided between the stockholders. Now they are n a.ly to sell stock, aud they will sell at Soor9o cents on tho dollar. Everybody is astonished that the stock of such a railroad is down so low, aud It is soon whispered around that too road is not paying over six per cent, on the capi tal stock. In reality it is paying twenty-four per cent on its actual cap ital stock, but the additional three millions of Watered stock now comes in for a dividend. We know of but two roads in tho United Stales that have not been managed by these water doctors—the Baltimore and Ohio and tbe Texas Central. These two roads are upon a firmer basis and doing a better business than any other roads on tho continent. And the reason is obvious: The original stockholders were honest men und do business On correct principles. Besides, railroad stock is a taxable commodity, and these watered stock chaps have to pay tax ou their stock, thank the Lord. We know it is wicked to rejoice over the misfortune of anyone; but we can bear the misfortune of those fellows with great Christian fortitude. If we are not mistaken, there will be no more watered stock in the United States after the next Congress meets, lie that as it may, we know the men who have chief control of this road at present, and we hope they will keep control. They do not deal in watered stock, and have no use for men who do. Wool Growing—Long and Short Staple. We would call the attention of our farmers and wool-growers to the fol lowing extracts from the annual wool circular of E. GRiSAit & Co., the leading men of the San Francisco Wool Exchange. The great aim of the wool - growers of this State for years past has been to produce a fine, heavy wool; while the demand of the manufacturer is for a long stapled wool of medium grade. The short stapled fine merino wool of California is only in demand for a limited line of manufactures, while a long stapled wool forms tho basis of all woolen goods in general every-day use, and is consequently always in demand. Messrs. Gkibah & Co. give the total wool clip of the State of California as 40,000,000 pounds, being nearly double the clip of 1871. They then go on lo say: The Spring clip was above the aver age of several preceding seasons in staple and coudition. Southern wools especially were remarkable for their good condition antl comparative free dom from bur. In the wools from other sections the improvement was less marked. The Fall clip has not been equal to that of 1873. The con dition Ts poorer, in consequence of sheep farmers having bred more for fine heavy wool than formerly, which naturally retains more dust than open wool of a coarser fibre. The fact, also, of valley lands having become too valuable for sheep raising, has driven the flocks into the mountain districts, where more seeds are found, and con sequently very little Fall wool is now free. The demaud throughout the year has been for wools of good staple. South ern wools iv the Spring met with ready sale, because the length of sta ple was thought to more than counter balance the burs they contained. Short stapled flue wools are the last to move, as they are only suitable for a few kinds of manufacturers. Tho wide-spread introduction of Merino blood into tbe flocks of this State is now making its effect appar ent in the increased amount of short, tine, heavy wool. Such wools are not suitable for fine goods, because the staple is teo short and they are usually defective. For common goods they are too expensive, as the shrinkage is heavy on account of the quality, and the staple is also too short. Long sta pled wools of medium grade are iv demand during Spring and Fall, and it is to the production of such descrip tions farmers should turn their atten tion if they want to have their wools meet with ready sale. The agitation now going on for a revision of the tariff' on wools and woolens should cause wool-growers to pay attention to the wants of consumers. Australia antl South America raise better fine wools than California, and can all'ord to sell their production- at a lower rate. Wools of medium quality are in better demand and are in smaller supply. To raising such de scriptions the grower here should turn his attention ; as land becomes more valuable it will pay the farmer to grow only such descriptions as will sell readily and bring a good return. Tho sheep which produce the wool referred to above as being most profit able for the farmer to raise are the Southdowns, Lincolns and Cotswolds. Of these, the Southdowns are perhaps the best, as they produce the exact grade recommended by E. Gkisab & Co., namely: "a long stapled wool of medium grade," while Southdown mutton is world-renowned for its su perior quality. Lincolns and Cots wolds produce a longer and coarser staple than tho Down, and their mut ton is also coarser. An observer, of a good deal of acu men, has concluded that people of small ideas and weak conceptions are the kind of folks who don't begin, but always "commence;" they don't live, but "reside;" they don'tgo to bed, but mysteriously "retire;" they don't eat and drink, but "partake of refresh ments;" they are never sick, but "ex tremely indisposed;" and instead of dying, at last, they "decease." Joseph Harper, a centenarian, died in Georgetown, D. C., at the age of 103 years, on the sth instant. He had been blinj for nearly eighty years. Latest Telegrams. >*% I I The New York Tribune, comment ing oa the Bub-committee's report ou Lou isiana affairs, says: "Gentlemen in Congress, tuaLrotten carcass in Louis iana is pasT*saving; throw it over board, and for the sake of common MUM ami common decency, wash your hands." . , , f At We meeting on Louisiana affaire in Boston, Wendell Phillips protested against any resolutions censuring the President's action on Louisiana fAualrs. He concluded: "Should you pass these resolutions, the Idood of one hundred black men and one hundred white men would be on your skirls. Four millions of negroes were culled into freedom to save the nation, ami now you refuse to allow the President to protect them." Sis or m veil lVmocrat io members of the Louisiana Legislature have back ed down, and want ta go in with the Republicans, so as to draw par diem and mileage. The Republicans of Minnesota, in caucus, have ie-nominated Ramsey for the U. g, Senate, but there is some dissatisfaction la the party. A white man named Blunt killed three ncgrcs the Other day, while Ihey were encamped near Clinton, l.ouisi aua. Tho message of tlie President on finance, sent to the Senate lately, with bis approval of Uu; Semite bill forjlie resumption of specie pay mailt, calls the attention of Congress to the necessity for increased revenue t<> carry out the obligation of adding to I lie sinkim? fund annually one per cent, of the public debt, and the promise of tho bill to redeem $80,000, --(M)0 of legal tenders, and suggests tbe restoration of the duty on tea and coffee, and the repeal of the ten per cent, reduction on certain articles by the act of June 5, 1872. Sargent and Page were before the Commissioner of Internal Revenue lately to secure his approval of letters for a bill for the relief of California brandy distillers. Douglass expressed himself in favor of a prorision author ising a distinctive stamp for native product. The Committee of Relief for the famine-stricken people in Asia-Minor urgently request the English and American press to let it be known that their funds are exhausted, while the distress is increasing. They state it will be necessary to clothe,* feed and give medical aid to several hundred thousand persons until next June. Germany, although wishing to re spect the feelings of the Spanish Gov ernment, considers that she is obliged to satisfy public opinion and avenge the insult of her flag. She is disposed to adopt the same conciliating policy toward the new Government which was maintained toward President Ser rano, therefore she claims from the good will of Spain the satisfaction due the German flag. At Urbana, Ohio, a mob took a man named TJllery out of jail and lynched him. He had outraged a nine-year-old girl. Judge Win. A. Wallace is the Dem ocratic, nominee for the U.S.Semite lti Pennsylvania. A reaction among leading Republi cans is reported front Washington, They have decided to recognize and sustain the Kellogg government in Louisiana. Thecaseof the German Bondholders vs. the California Paciiic Railroad came up in the U. S. Circuit Court in San Francisco the other morning. The defendant corporation, it will be re membered, petitioned in this Court to have the adverse decision of Judge Hofl'man reviewed and set aside. An order was made by Judge Sawyer for petitioners in bankruptcy to show cause why the prayer' of defendants should not be granted, and the hearing was set down for that morning; Luton motion of counsel for bondolders, with the consent of the other side, the mat tor was continued until the 128 th of February. Rev. Dr. David J. Lee, formerly rector and founder of St. Luke's Epis copal Church, San Francisco, was drowned In the Amazon river in Au gust last. He was in the service of the London South American Missionary Society, and was at one time chaplain of Oriental Lodge, No. 141, F.&A.M., of that city. Dr. Lee was a blood rel ative of Scotland's bard, Robert Burns. Railroad Collision in Nevada. Causon, January 17tli. —A collision occurred on the Virginia andTruckee Railroad, at about 0:30 last evening, one mile below the American Flat scales. The up train for Causon, when near the Baltic switch, a short dis tance from Gold Hill, broke a coup ling, and three rear cars ran back on the down grade, the hindmost loaded with pig-iron. The brakemen jumped oil" without injury, also the conductor. The lirst part of the train dashed on to Gold Hill. They telegraphed to flic man at the scales to turn the switch and run tho ears oft'the track,knowing a train was coming with which a col lision was inevitable, unless the runa way cars were turned off the track. For some reason the switch was not turned and the collision occurred. The coming train consisted of nine ban, including one passenger car, and two engines, the Comstock and Humboldt, the former in advance. GitTord, the engineer-of the Comstock, says tiie loose cars camo at a speed of sixty miles an hour. He shut aIY si cam, whistled down the brakes, and the fireman, brakeman' and engineer jumped ofF without injury. Thu pig iron car struck the Comstock, stove in her boiler and swept nf her smoke stack. She was wrecked. The shock was heard at Gold Hill, two miles dis tant. The pig-iron car was knocked into kindling wood. No lives were lost, although the up train was con siderably injured. Largo and Small Ears. Large ears, as has been observed, hear things in genral, and denote broad coniprchcnstve views and modes of thought; while small ears hear things in particular, showing a dispo sition to individualize, often accom panied by the love of the minule. Largo ears are usually satisfied with the general principles involved too strict au attention to the numera tion of details, especially all repeti tion of the more unimportant, Is wearisome to them. People with such ears like generally, and are usu ally fitted to conduct large enterprises, to receive and pay out money iv large sums; In buyiug or selling would pre fer to leave a margin rather than re duce the qnantity of goods of any sort to tho exact dimensions of tho meas ure specified, and in triving would pre fer to give with free hand and without too strict a calculation to the exact amount. Small ears, on the contrary, desire to know the particulars of a story as woll us Llio main fuels; take delight often in examining, handling, oi;abstracting any tiny specimens of workmanship; are disposed to be ex net wi I h respect to inches and ounces in buying or soiling, to the extent at least of knowing tne exact number over or undvr the stated measure given or received. People with such ears would, in most cases, prefer a re tail to a wholesale trade. — Phrcnolog iml Jrmnuit. DIED. WILLIAMS.— In Los Angeles, January 20, IB7s,Jtfaud,ygupgo*l daughter of It.
