CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY, JAN. 20, 1875. TlisSan Diego 6 T nion opposes the action of the State Grange in asking Congress to aid the Southern Pacific Company to build tho Pacific end of the Texas Pacific Road. We are credibly informed that a gold note bank will soon be started iv this city. The parties are not at present residents of Los Angeles city but are men of large means. 11 is their purpose to place the bank on a commercial basis and do an extensive and varied business. Zack Chandler who believed that the Republican party could never be defeated In Michigan, and that he would retain his seat in the United States Senate as long as ho lived, has changed his mind, now that another man has been elected to till his place. In another column will be found a detailed account of the inundation of Marysville, which will be road with Interest, tha ~r property has been even greater than at first re ported. The damage will exceed one million dollars. This to a town of the size and population of Marysville is very heavy. Mauy families have lost all and at last accounts tlie women and children were suffering from ex posure and hunger. Sacramento was doing all that could be done in sending forward relief. The Odd Fellows, Red Men, the Howard Association and the Citizens Committee were collecting and forwarding food and clothing. Wells, Fakqo & Co.'s agents were aiding the good work in every way possible. Unless the town has been a second time Hooded all necessary aid has been afforded ere this. A Cool Proposition. Under the name of the American District Telegraph Company, the Western Union Telegraph Company arc scheming to obtain possession of the fire alarm ami police telegraph wires of San Francisco. They have a proposition now before the Board of Supervisors to take charge of and manage the wires at the same ex pense they now cost the city. It is not probable that tlie city's wire would be any better, and perhaps no worse, managed, under the proposed new arrangement, than they are now; but the Western Union would secure the use of a network of wires through out the city, for which they would pay nothing, and for the expense of keeping in order of which the city would pay. To give these wires over lv tne T»e»ieru union would be a manifest injustice to other telegraph companies and would be giving aid and comfdtt to a monopoly which has always regarded fair competition as trespassing on its own self-arrogated rights and treated it as an euemy, to destroy which any means, no matter how reprehensible, was admissable. If San Francisco desires to let the use of her fire-alarm wires to a private corporation, it is but justice to the tax-payers who have paid for those wires and aro taxed to keep them in repair, that they should be leased to the company which will maintain their present usefulness at the least expense to the city. It is probable that the Atlantic aud Pari tic Tele graph Company would take charge of the city's wires on terms more advan tageous to the tax-payers than are offered by the American - District- Western-Union Telegraph Company. The Grange Speake. Tho resolutions adopted by Los An gelea Grange and published iv the Herald of last Sunday morning, denunciatory of those members of the State Board of Bdoofttion who voted to change the text books of our public schools, deserve more thau a poasing notice. They are written in straight forward, unmistakable English, and express unqualified condemnation of an act which canuot be sustained by any species of argument. Los Angeles Grange does not hesitato to say that the vote of the majority of tho Board was procured through a money influ ence. Of tho correctness of this as sumption we do not express an opin ion, but we have no doubt it is shared by State Superintendent Bolander and the other members of the Board who with him comprised tho minority. The published statement of Mr. Ban croft that he will exchange his books for those now in use without extra cost, is intended to deceive the people -—is, In fact, a falsehood by implica tion. He would make tho exchange if the old books were presented at his house, but the thousand and one small dealers who will supply the greater portion of the new books will not make the exchange, and no one more thoroughly understands that thtey will not than Mr. Banbroft. He will sell his books to the relail dealers and they will sell them to the people. If this is all the argument he is able to offer in support of his scheme for forc ing a tribute from the masses for his support, he would have made a stronger case by remaining silent. The change of books is an outrage—no milder or less emphatic term will express it— and it is the duty of every Orange in the State and of the people generally to elect men to the legislature who will make it their fust act toiepeal tho law under which this infamous bargain and sale was consummated. The Legislature will be in session one month before Mr. Bancroft will begin to realize from his speculation. The people have it in their power to defeat this attempt to rob them, and they should do it so effectually that a similar attempt will never be made. A Plain Statement of Facts. The telegraph Informs us that the objection of the people of Los Angeles to the proposed change or tho route of the Southern Pacific Railroad as set forth In Houohton's bill, is not fully understood in Washington. Our Rep resentatives in Congress —some of whom are our friends and some our en emies—need uot be long iv doubt as to the .grounils on which these objections are Imsed. The committee appointed by the Chamber of Commerce—R. M. Widnev, H. D. Barrows and Isaac W. Lord—have prepared ami pub lished in pamphlet form all the facts bearing on tlie case. Copies of this document have been forwarded to Sen ator Jones and Congressmen Lut trell and Houghton. It opens with a clear and aonclse summary of all the facts, which Is signed by the Chamber of Commerce and the com mittee. Then follows the contract between the Southern Pacific Railroad Company and Los Angeles county, in which for and in consideration of a specified subsidy, which has been voted, the company bound themselves to do the very thing which they are now trying to avoid doing; that is.run the main track of the Southern Pacific Road through this city. Ju this docu- .j pieuge, pruuitov .<>j con dition agreed upon by the parties of the first and second part is clearly set forth and to it the proper signatures are appended. Then follows a number of ordinances on which the voters of this city assigned the company the stock held by the city in the Los An geles and San Pedro Railroad Compa ny, on condition that the company fulfill tho requirements of the above mentioned contract. To this is ap pended the pamphlet of Colonel Hyde, the agent of the Southern Pacific Rail road Company, in which, in consider ation of the subsidy stated in the above mentioned contract and after ward voted, he binds the company to definitely and irrevokeably fix the trunk line of the road through the city and county of Los Angeles. If our delegation in Cotigress will read this document they will have no diffi culty in understanding the grounds on which the people of Los Angeles object to the passage of Houghton's bill. A glance through its pages might refresh the memory of Messrs. Colton and Huntington, both of whom seem to have forgotten that they have placed on record certain pledges from the redemption of which even the power of Congress cannot ab solve them. Slight Injury by the Rains-Good Crop Prospects. Stockton, January 22d. — Tho weather to-day has been very unset tled, it raining heavily tlie greater portion of the day and this evening. It has now ceased raining. Tlie water In the sloughs in the vicinity of the city, and *>«•••» —— the city is fast receding, 'the late heavy rain 9 have done but little dam age in this couuty. On the West side of the San Joaquin the best spirits prevail among the farmers, and al though the rain came late, the pros pects for crops above tho average yield are excellent. The reports that crops on the West side of the river.owing to the lack of rain, were a total failure, are denied, and good crops aro now looked for. A band of sheepon Venus Island was drowned by the high water. Sentenced to Death. Modesto, January 22.—The trial of Wm. Dona, for the killing of .luck Connelly, in December last, at Ln, Grange, in this county, began at 11 o'clock yesterday aud was concluded at 6P. M. The jury, after deliberating two hours, brought In a verdict of murder iv the first degree and affixed the death penalty. Tiiis is the second man ever found guilty of murder in tlie first degree In this county. The first was Wm. Gregory, nineteen years ago. Wednesday, the 27th inst., was fixed by the Court as the day of pronouncing sentence. An Avalanche buries Eight Men and Kills Six.

Broderlck, Sam'l Hitter, Chas. Dabble, Jas. Roazie, H. Atkins and R. Moore. Tbe entire population of the Cottonwoods is dis mayed, and numbers are deserting Alta and surrounding towns. A Man Run Over and Killed. Salt Lake Citv,January 22d.— The bodies of none of the six men buried by the snow slide at Big Cottonwood have been recovered. A Swede named Simon Johnson was run over on the Utah Central Rail road, near Kasy ville, yesterday, and killed. He has a mother at Denver, Colorado, and a sister at Blair, lowa. The Utah Northern Railroad was washed away in several places by the freshet, and no train passed over it to day. Sudden Death or Mayor Durant, of Oakland.

Hundred)* or Thousand* ol' Dollara Worth ol Property octroyed. [From tho Marysville Appeal, Jan. 22.1 In our issue of the 20th inst., which went to press at about 12 o'clock on Tuesday night, we could only say that the city was submerged, but to what depth we could not learn, owing to the confusion and excitement and tho impossibility of obtaining accurate information. Boats could not be hail, because there were not more than five or six in the city. By 12:80 Wednes day morning the water in the streets had reched its highest mark, ranging from FOUR TO FIVE FEET IN DEPTH, And in all the buildings, with a few exceptions, from a depth of eighteen iuches to five feet. There were, per haps, twenty buildings into which the water did not reach, including the Hudson block, Casey block, and the residences of C. B. Kimball, J. H. Krause, Fred. Buttellmann's, and one or two others. People occupying one story buildings in all parts of the city were obliged to fly to two-story build ings, and had no time tosave anything but what they wore and could carry with them. In many instances women and children hud to be packed ob the backs of men, or REMOVED ON RAITS, To places of safety in two-story build ings. Ail who resided 111 second stories, over aiuies in.the mam part of the city were safe, and iv these build ings, including the Court House, many sought refugo. The filling of the city was so rapid that it was thought a number of lives would be lost, but fortunately but one person was drowned. People residing in one story frame houses in THE FIRST WARD Had timely notice and left their homes before the water reached them. This section of the city being five or six feet lower than the stieets in the main part of the town, the water averaged from ten to twelve feet in depth, and the damage to buildings and fences was very large. SMALL RARNS AND OUT-HOUSES WERE OVERTURNED And one or two small dwellings were floated from their sites. The one story house of Mrs. McGinnity, which stood on tlio West side of F street slough, between Fiftli and Sixth streets, was lloated into Napoleon Sqtiare,a distance of about half a block. The barn of Mr. Maguire was carried a few rods South, upon the lot of Offi cer Cunnlngbsjn. which fronts on J streets, between Fourth and Fifth. Tlio broom factory of Thompson & Son was lifted from its foundation and stands out of line. The fences are generally lifted from the ground and scattered iv every direction. The city, witli the exception of the First W T ard, was clear of water by 6 o'clock on Wednesday evening, tlie water begin ning to fall at about 1 o'clock and gradually ran off as the rivers declined. At daylight on WEDNESDAY MOKNIXO The city Was one vast sea ol' water, on a level with the Feather and Yuba rivers, with a strong current of water making Southward from the nreak in the levees on tbe North side of the city, and flowing down the F street slough, through tho big crevasse in the Mouth Icvcc, Into tho Vni.« »:-..., This current Drought iv and carried away considerable quantities of flood wood and every kind of debris from the flood. The SCENES WHICH OCCURRED On the streets all day Wednesday were peculiar to Californians,who improved the day by poling about the streets on rafts, and maintained the best of spirits by frequent potations of some thing from black bottles. There were a few boats, but these were generally manned by parties who did not fail to take advantage of the impoverished citizens, and charged five dollars per hour for their use. After the water had receded so that it was not over knee-deep to animals, quite a number of men on horseback appeared iv the streets and generally the livery horses were- removed to the Yuba river bridge and to the levee. Ou Wednes day morning there were but few who knew where they were to FIND A COLD BREAKFAST, And no doubt quite a large number of people had not sufficient to eat during the day. But our liberal citizens, who had anything, freely divided witli all who were thrown in their way. On Second street, near High, there was a Are built on a pile of driftwood, and from a quarter of beef the hungry sliced a piece and broiled it on the end of a sharpened stick. The Appeal boys, who were all forced to stay in the office after getting the Wednesday morning paper to press, obtained for age by passing over the roof of T. Boon's grocery on <J street, through which Kd. Sellon, the carrier,was low ered with a rope to such things as ho could reach on the shelves above tlie water. Though no one suffered for food, to our knowledge, we are satis lied that many maintained a strict diet and in some instances substituted stimulants for food. The water had entirely receded from the streets by 8 o'clock Wednesday evening, and sev eral hours before this time express wagons were out and busily engaged. But none of the stores were opened till Thursday morning, when tho GREAT DAMAGE AND LOSS Became apparent. The flood proved no respector of persons; the most ele gant jewelry and dry goods stores pre sented t he same d i lapidated appearance as the smaller and plainer retail houses. When our merchants became aware that the water was coming into the city, they commenced to pile up thoir goods on boxes, timbers and counters. In a few instances the goods were placed above tho high water mark, but generally so low that the water reached them, and their supports were thrown belter skelter upon the water. Where goods did not fall over, the water reached them at various heights, and the destruction was appalling. Everybody who had anything to lose are sufferers in sums varying from fivo hundred to tens of thousands of dollars. The aggregate loss of twenty houses has been enough to build a good and substantial levee about the city. There is no need of specifying individual losses, where the destruction is so general. Drowned In the Mokelumne River. Lorn, January 20th. —Mr. Elijah Smith and two of Dr. Locke's sons were shooting hare on an island In the Mokelumne river, near Lockeford, yesterday afternoon, and while re turning tlie boat filled with water,and Mr. Smith is supposed to be drowned, as he was last seen clinging to the bout. Dr. Locke's sons managed to swim ashore. MICHA X NTH A L.-In this oils January 2ttit, by Rev. A. w. Edelman, Mai ous Michael Is, of this city, to .Miss Flora Loewenthal, late of Chicago, NEW TO-DAY.
