CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
WEDNESDAY JAN. 27, 1875.
A lady who commenced business
by knitting stocking in Virginia City,
now has $125,000 standing to her
credit. She bonght stock.
The San Francisco j\*t indulges in
a sneer at the orange growers of Los
Angeles valley, because they ask pro
tection sgainst the products of the
Sandwich Islands.
We are informed on the most relia
ble authority that the route Rejected
by Engineer Crawford for the Los
Angeles and Independence Railroad
between this city and Cajon Pass is
the shortest 'and best that could be
found. It is considerably shorter
than tlie route of the Southern Pacific,
and the labor necessary for preparing
the road-bed Ut comparatively light.
Loa Angeles county has suffered
but little from the flood. So far as we
have been able to learn, tho loss of
stock has been comparatively light,
and no where has there been seri
ous inundations. The railroads have
suffered most, but this loss has not
been severe, and in a few days Super
intendent Hewitt will have every
thing iv working order. Compared
with towns and valleys in the mid
dlo portions of the State, we of Los
Angeles have suffered no loss.
Shumaker, to whom Irwin, of Pa
cific Mail notoriety, says he paid
$125,000, has the most treacherous
memory of any man in the world.
He says he supposes he must have re
ceived the money, but he has not the
slightest recollection of having done
so. The mouey was paid at different
times, in two $50,000 checks and one
payment of $25,000. Yet Shumaker
cannot remember having received
this large sum. We should liko to try
our memory on amounts of those di
mensions.
On the 23d instant Tiburcio Vas
quez was sentenced to be hung by
the neck until he is dead as old
Morley, who was as dead as a door
nail. Friday, the 19th day of March
next is the day fixed for his execution.
The prisoner's council, Judge Col
lins, moved for a new trial on the al
leged errors of the Court in ruling on
the competency of jurors. The objec
tions were overruled and on the ex
ceptions taken the case will go to the
Supreme Court. While the sentence
was being pronounced Vasquez did
not show the least concern, lie has
evidently made up his miud that the
fates are against him. His chance for
a new trial is about one in a thousand.
Our friends down in Santa Barbara
are not to be outdone in the way of
resolutions. They have resolved to
show the world that they can resolve
as well as the most resolved—can "res
olute" with the most resolute. Their
last resolve ia to build a narrow-gauge
railroad from that part of the Pacific
coast on which is located the city of
Santa Barbara, to the mining region
known as Panamint. They have also
resolved that up tho Santa Clara val
ley is nature's route from the sea to
the mountains; and they have
amended this resolve with the resolve
that nature's route from the moun
tains to the sea is down the Santa
(Mara valley. They have resolved to
avail themselves of nature's route and
build a narrow-cauge railroad.
It is difficult to determine what will
ho the result of Congressman Lut
trell'B resolutions to have the lands
appropriated to the .Southern Pacific
thrown into market at the Govern
ment rate of one dollar and twenty
five cents per acre. If the railroad
company refuse to accept this condi
tion, then he will endeavor to have
the Government declare the land in
the market and subject to entry ut
Government rates. It is not probable
that the railroad company will agree
to sell the land at the price asked hy
Mr. Luttrell, hut will prefer rather
to maintain their right to sell it at
rates fixed by themselves, and in this
case he will do all ln his power to de
feat their proposition to change the
route of the road so that it will run
through Cajon Pass.
Will Make a Fight.
The State Central Committee of the
Independent party, or at least a por
tion of the members thereof, met in
San Francisco the other day and with
hut one dissenting vote—that of Dr.
Gibbons of Alameda—resolved to hold
a State Convention and nominate can
didates to bo voted for at the next
general election. Governor Booth
was present and the committee meet
ing was presided over by the Govern
or's business partner, W. W. Dodoe.
The resolutions to hold a convention
were written ond introduced by Jno.
F. Swift, who would rather be the
convention's nominee for Governor
with the certainty of defeat than to
have the party disband and leave
him without a party, even though it is
a amah one, and the chance for the
nomination. The effort of this deter
mination of the fragment of the party
that bus survived the demoralization
brought about by the bad manage
ment of incompetent scheming,and in
some instances,dishonest leaders, may
bo understood from the deprecation of
Republican, and the exultation of
Democratic organs. The day previous
to that on which tlie committee met,
the Chronicle which, while professed
ly independent has always been radi
cally Republican, advised, begged and
implored Mr. Bodge and his triends
not to call a convention, and thus
leave the Independents-free to return
to the Republican fold, where it hoped
they would make common cause
against the old Democratic enemy.
This is the key note to the SOttg sung
by other Republican journals. But des
pite the Chronicle's gotsL-Ropublioan
advice the Committee "resoluted,"and
iv place of arguments, which partook
strongly of the character of protesta
tions, we have weeping ant wailing
and gnashing of teeth from Republi
cans and almost hilarious exultations
frees Democrats, The judgment of
shrewd politicians of all parties is that
the adoption of Swift's resolutions
has rendered the election of the Demo
cratic ticket doubly sure. But of this
result our Democratic friends should
not be over confident. It is yet some
time till election, aud iv nothing is
the adage that there is many a slip
twixt cup and lip, more likely to be
verified than in politics. The day has
arrived in California when no party
can elect its ticket on its party name.
The election of the Legislature that
sent Booth to the United States Sen
ate verified this fuct. Under a Repub
lican form of government no party
can become so powerful that it may
defy the people. The iruth of this
axiom will be attested by the leaders
of the National Republican Tarty.
The tidal wave of last Fall taught
them this lesson. To-day the odds are
in favor of the Democrats of California.
But they may lose their advantage by
a single unwise act—a bad nomination
for Governor will do the work for
them. In our State party lines are so
nearly obliterated that the people will
not vote for a bad man on one ticket
when they can find a good one ou an*
| other.
PANAMINT TO TIDE WATER.
The miners' Kailroud—Stanford's Big
Blunder—The Promise of Au inde
pendent Kond to Connect with
the t'tnli System.
[From tin- & K. Post.]
The Panamint mines as will by seen,
though already yielding a very large
sum monthly, cannot be worked to
anything like their capacity until
they are connected by railroad with
the ocean. The highest effort yet to
haul out the ore has not in a month
reached more than one-fourth what
the company can ship every day if
they had a railroad. These mines can
now turn out 190,000 tons a year if
they had transportation. Within six
months they could turn out enough to
load a 2,000 tou ship every other day
the year round. That is not as much
as we do in wheat during the Beaton,
but taking the total of the year is not
very much less.
RAILROAD CHEEK.
Of course, fn this State it is well
known that Leland Stanford and asso
ciates have a patent for building rail
roads, and when any body of men be
lieve that a railroad will benefit their
section of country, a delegation is sent
to " talk to the Governor." Tho Pan
amint people wanting a railroad very
badly, and having the means of load
ing a hundred cars a day with ore, be
sides an enormous merchandise and
mahinery freight the other way, dele
gated one of their company to "talk
to the Governor." The Governor re
ceived the mining magnates politely,
repeated his stereotyped phrases about
his company's desire to aid in devel
oping the resources of the country',
said he was vary much interested in
Panamint, asked several questions,
put in a few sitle appeals for good will
to the Central Railroad, and finally
came to the point. The railroad from
Panamint to Spadra ought to be built,
and built at once. Unfortunately, nt
present this company's bond* were not
sought for in Europe, and it became a
question of means. The railroad com
pany might make a beginning, but if
the road was to be completed rapidly,
it would be necessary that tho mining
magnates, who wanted the road,
should cash its bonds. The mining
magnates did not quite see it. If he
and his friends were to find the money
to build the road and furnish all the
traffic afterward, they might as well
dispense with the services of the Con
tract and Finance Company. Of
course, if Mr. Stanford owned the
road, built with the miners' money,
he would not charge more for freight
on ore and merchandise than the law
allowed. And after the insight given
by the examination into the Califor
nia Paeitlc affairs, the mining mag
nate Ml quite sure that if the Pana
mint railroad was built and did a
paying business, the interest on the
bonds would be regularly forthcoming
unless the railroad had other uses for
it. Still, on the whole, as they had to
furnish the cash anyhow, just for the
pleasure of the thing, he would prefer
to own tbe road. Besides, the South
ern PucinVs ocean terminus is not the
best place in the world for a business
that will bring two hundred long voy
age ships a year to the cars. So the
Truxton ranch quietly bought,
with its landing at deep water, now
called "Shoofiy."
THE CAJON PASS.
General Beale, any time this ten
years, has let his friends know that in
the control of the Cajon Pass, he held
the key to the future Southern Pacific
Railroad. But Stanford would uever
see it; and according to him and his
engineers, of all the Southern passes.
Cajon Pass was the worst for railroad
purposes. This was the Panamint
chance, and before Stanford could say
Jack Robinson, the Los Angeles, Pan
mint and Independence Railroad engi
neers started out, found the pass just
what they wanted, and went to work.
Stanford telegraphed to his employees
to mount their horses and gallop to
the pass. They rode hard, but were
just one hour too late. Mr. Crawford,
the mining magnates' engineer, had
driven in the stakes, and in the nar
row defiles of Cajon Pass, there was
no room for another road. Then Gov.
Stanford got wroth, forgot his impe
cuaiosity and his inability to sell his
bonds in Europe, and swore, as usual,
that he would build a parallel road
and ruin the owners of a bonanza
bigger than all" his railroads. The
mining magnates did uot scare worth
a cent; they controlled a traffic that
would make their road pay more than
handsomely If not another soul pat
ronized their iron-way. On second
thought, Stanford simmered down; he
hail been out-maneuvered, and if lie
gave a challenge he would be out
fought. Bluff was no use against
twenty dollar pieces.
WORSE DANGERS TH REATKNED.
But if a road is built from Shoo Kly
to Los Angeles, there is an and of I he
Southern Pacific purchase, Banning l !
pot,*the Wilmington road, nnd if the
now road ever reaches Independence,
a short stretch of 2(H) miles or so will
connect it with the Utah local roads,
aud the main overland route will have
a terrible rival. To lose tlie Panamint
trade would be vexatious; to let ft)
earnings go to build a new and shorter
line to reach the Union Pacific was the
biggest blunder Stanford ever made.
But it is done.
A irtJBW PACTS.
Truxton, or Shootly, :ts we have be
fore .sltited, is located on tho West side
of a blutf or headland, a few miles
North of Wilmington, but live or six
mi loa nearer Los Angeles. A wharf
300 feet long will give 26 fWI of water;
but as the company/ ha* to provide fa
cilities for loading several s!lips at once,
they will run their wharf (100 feet out.
Shootly over the Truxton Bunch to
Los Angeles is a dead level, and the
line passes close lo or through the
Centlnela Oofooy hinds. L,is Angeles,
brightened up by the astounding pro**
poets of business derived from the
Panamint mines, has subscribed for
$100,000 In stock—or rather its citizens
nave—and right of way, laud for de
pots, ami every facility is promised.
From Los Angeles to Cajon Pass is as
level as Montgomery street, and all
the right of way over private lands
has been secured. The Cajon Pass,
from the first of the rise to the last of
the descent, is about twenty miles
miles, and at both cuds there will be
much cutting. In the middle of the
pass there will be a tunnel of 1,800 feet
through soft red sandstone. This be
ing the toughest job on the road, it is
now being driven at both ends, and In
six months or less will be finished.
The highest grade through the pass
will be 120 feet to the mile. After
leaving the pass, the road crosses the
salt deserts on a dead level, where not
even a scraper will have to be used to
make a bed for the ties. Such is the
character of the road through Pana
mint valley to the mouth of Surprise
cation, the terminus of the broad
gauge road. The company will build
tramways in Surprise canon, eight
miles, as the ascent is 500 feet to tho
mile. In crossing the salt deserts no
difficulty will be experienced for want
of water, as there are springs at inter
vals, and fresh water can be secured
by sinking wells. The ties of the road
from Shootly to Cajon Pass will have
to be brought by sea. From that
point they will have to be supplied by
the forests of Cajon. Iron is cheap
now, and everything is favorable for
rapid and cheap construction. The
distance between Los Angeles and the
mouth of Surprise valley hy wagon
road is about 200 miles, but it is ex
pected that the railroad will cross the
country with 170 or 180 miles of road.
The Panamint road is really a branch
from the main line to Independence,
but being more important to the min
ing interests, will be built first. Even
with the broad gauge which has been
adopted with a view to future connec
tions through Southern Utah and the
Union Pacific Railroad, the
cost on most of the road will not ex
ceed, if it quite reaches, 526,000 per
mile. The only costly points are the
Truxton and Los Angeles depots and
cuts and tunnel through Cajon Pass.
The money being ready and the people
men of action,who have millions upon
millions lying idle in Panamint wait
ing for the road, there will ho no time
lost, and within twelve months the
shriek of the locomotive will be heard
at the mouth of Surprise Cation.
The future income of the road may
be calculated thus:
1,000 tons of ore a day at 810 a lon $10,000
50 tons of merchandise n day nt $25 a lon 1,250
40 passengers a day at an average of *■>... 200
$11,438
A day, or $3,435,000 ■ > - « ar gross in
come from Panamint alone. There is
no other toad in the country can show
such a prospect for the gross earnings
from traffic actually controlled by the
proprietors, while the mines show, as,
they do now $1,000,000 a year more
than the cost of the road itself. No
wonder Stanford feels very mad, but
what is he going to do about it ?
Contentment Under Difficulties.
[From tlie Stanislaus Times, January i&I.J
During the Hood, last Tiicsday,three
Chinamen were discovered pawing
down the river astride of a log. A
short distance ahead of them was dis
covered a small boat, drifting at will
of the current and without occupants.
A bystander on the bank, who chanced
to be one of our sturdy farmers, was
thinking of the best means of rescuing
these Children of the Sun, when one
of the number, as if interpreting his
intention cried out. "Belly good, John;
me catchec by'n-by !" at Ihe same
time pointing to the boat. The swift
current soon carried them out of
sight, and we have not been enabled
to learn whether the contented Johns
overhauled the small boat, or whether
their bodies became bait for fish. Still
it is about ns hard to drown a China'
man as a duck, and the probability is
that the Johns are luxuriating in
some village of their countrymen, and
laughing at the interest manifested
hy the "Melican man" in their be
half.
Republican Senatorial Cancus.
Washington, January 23d.--The
Republican Senatorial Caucus on
Southern affairs to-day, lasted several
hours, but there being conflicting
views, no conclusion was reached.
The caucus instead of giving expres
sion to views on the Louisiana ques
tion, agreed to await the action ot the
Committee on Ejections on the Pinch
back credentials, and will therefore be
governed in the Senate by the Com
mittee's report. Some Senators say
there is no escape from the present dif
ficulties in tho State but by remanding
it to a Territorial condition; that by
this means could be avoided complica
tions growing out of a recognition of
the Kellogg Government, and open
the way by which order may eventu
ally be restored. Others think a
stronger hand ought to be stretched
toward several of the Southern States,
otherwise there might be anarchy.
Opinions different from theso are ex
pressed by more Conservative Sena
tors, but all seem to comprehend the
difficulties of the situation. No dis
tinctive plan has been presented as a
relief.
Arrest in Salinas
Saunas, January 23d. — Sheriff
Smith arrested a man hero to-day
named Kennedy, on suspicion of hav
ing stolen $170 from a man named
Metcalf, in Montgomery. The money
taken consisted of a one-hundred-dol
lar gold note, one fifty, and twenty
dollars in gold. The money found on
Kennedy corresponded with that
a'olen from Metcalf.
House Republican Caucas.
\vasiunoton, January jk.— mere
was a large attendance at the House
Republican caucus to-night. There
was v general discussion of tlie South
ern question, but none of the meas
ures reported at tho previous cations
were acted on. Finally, a resolution
was adopted, placing lite power of
passing all public acts with a majority
of the House. A resolution for this
purpose will probably ho introduced
in the House Ml Monday, and. when
adopted, will nave tbe effect or evad
ing the two-thirds rule as to public
nets, Including the Civil Rights hill, a
more energetic enforcement of pro
tective laws in the South, und author
ising the President to suspend habeas
corpus in certain cases, with other
measures which have been subjects of
eodsideration by the Caucus Commit
tee. Tlie proceedings are represented
to have been harmonious, and the re-
Bull entirely satisfactory.
Citizens of stocklon Moving for the
Relief of Maryville Sufferers.
Stockton, January 23d.—A meet
ing of citizens was held Ibis evening
to take measures to aid the Marysville
sufferers. Mayor Doak presided. A
committee was appointed to canvass
the city for cash subscriptions, ami re
port to tho Mayor on Monday evening.
The Knights of Pythias, Rod Men,
R'nai R'rith, and other societies are
moving in the matter.
Fire at Oakland.
Oakland, January 23d.—At eight
o'clock this evening the whole East
ern part of the city was lit up by a
contiagration. The lire was found lo
be in a barn full of hay at the Eastern
end of the Twelfth street bridge. The
bam wai totally destroyed. It was
twenty-live minutes from the time
tlie tire hurst through the roof before a
single stream of water was poured on
it. The property was partially in
sured.
