Mr. S. C. Foy, of titiscity, yesterday
received a letter from his sister, who
lives at Lawrenceburg, Indiana, in
which she says at the time of writing
the thermometer marked eleven de
grees below zero—forty-three degrees
below the freezing point. The lady also
inquires why it is that while we are
claiming that ours is the most healthy
climate in the world our papers are
filled with physician's cards and
apothecary advertisements. The why
and wherefore of this is thus: Loa
Angeles is the resort of invalids from
all parts of the world. Doctors go
where the invalids go, and druggists
are essential to both doctors and in
The Star litis apparently convinced
itself that there is nothing in Hough
ton's bill, so far as a change of route
of the Southern Pacific Railroad Com
pany is concerned. There is, however,
one point on which it has not yet ex
ercised its sophistry. In their con
tract with the people of this county,
tho company agreed to com
plete their road from the North
to Los Angeles within five years from
November, 1872; but In Houghton's
bill they ask to have the date of com
pletion extended to 1885. Is this all
right and would another subsidy of
$;iOO,OOO prevail on them not to go into
Congress sometime between now and
1885 and ask to have the time extended
to the year 1901 ?
Editor Hkkaj.d I You have Stated that you
would give pioposcd purchasers some inform
ation relative to the lands, water privileges,
etc., of tiie Cucamongo Homesteau Assooia
tiou. Arevou prepared to do so now? Tlie
sale of the pvouerty is advertised to lake
place on Ttleaduj next, and I in common
with others who eunteinptata puroliusing,
would be thauktul for n>l Information attain
able relative to tho matter.
Los Augeles, January 29,187 i
In response to the above note, we
will say that we have not yet received
the long promised report on Cuea
niongo land and water, and cannot to
day give as full and explicit informa
tion as we had hoped and desired. The
following facts and suggestions may
be useful to our correspondent and his
friends: The quality of some of the
soil of the Cucamongo grant is cor
rectly described in the pamphlet pub
lished by the company some time ago.
What proportion of the soil ia as de
scribed the pamphlet does not say nor
do we know. It is a good rule not to
purchase land until you have seen and
carefully examined every acre of it.
Those who intern! to purchase Cuca
mongo property should rigidly
apply this rule. A certain proportion
of tbe land ia a loose gravelly forma
tion, good for fruit trees, but will
require an immense amount of water.
Now of the main thing —water —with-
out an abundance of which Cucamongo
land, like a great deal of other land, is
worth less than nothing. The old
Cucamongo vineyard is the heart of
the homestead, but is not a part of it
and is not to be sold with it, though
we are informed it is owned by the
same parties who are placing the land
in market. Aconsiderable water rises
on the vineyard, and it is supposed to
be the water which sinks at the mouth
of the eaiion. The company is now
taking the water from the cation and
convoy lug it in pipes down to the
homestead lands. Here is the danger
which purchasers of the homestead
should guard against: .Suppose it is
found, as it most certainly will be,
that taking the water from the cafion
iv pipes exhausts the supply at some
season of the year on the vineyard,
what guarantee have the pur
chasers of the homestead that the
owners of the vineyard ranch will mot
by process of law compel them to turn
tho water back into its natural chan
nel? The vineyard has the prior claim
to tho water If it can be shown that its
supply is from the canon, and its fail
ure after the water ia taken out in
pipes will be evidence of that fact.
Tho loss of the water to the homestead
purchasers would render their land
utterly worthless. Properly the vine
yard ranch should have beeu a part
of tho homestead, but as it is not no
one should purchase a foot of the land
until the vineyard owners forever
abandon all claims to the water of the
cafioti. This guarantee may have
already been made, but if it has not it
should be before the land is sold.
The Two Companies.
Knowing as we do that tbe Evening
Express has long cherished a griidge
against the Grange and tho Granger,
and that it has become so prejudiced
against the railroad company that it
cannot bring itself to see any good in
that corporation, we can readily ex
cuse its opposition to the action of the
State Grange in recommending our
delegation iv Congress to favor subsi
dizing the Southern Pacific Company
in like ratio that aid was offered the
Texas Pacific, as well as overlook its
broad and unsustained charges of mo
nopoly and extortion preferred against
the Southern Pacific Railroad Com
pany. But we cannot permit it to
make an argument against our posi
tion relative to the course pursued by
the State Grange and in support of the
Pacific company, and yet leave the
main feature of that position untouch
ed, without saying a word in response.
The gist of our argument was that no
matter how or by whom the Southern
overland railroad was built, it would
not give us a competing line; that if
the road was built by two companies,
there would be no competition; that
the Texas Pacific would not build fur
ther West than it met a road going
East; that the Southern Pacific will
only go East until it meets the one
stretching West; that only the one
track would be built, no matter how
many companies were engaged in its
construction. If our cotemporary can
show us that this position is not cor
rect, it will be able to upset all the
rules and regulations that govern
business. Tlie Southern Pacific al
ready have the right of way to the
Colorado river and they will build tlio
road to that point, subsidy or no sub
sidy. Tom Scott will not build his
Texas Pacific road a mile beyond that
point on the subsidy he will receive
from towns, counties, States and the
nation. If anyone flatters himself
that these two companies will build
parallel roads and run a competition
that will impoverish both, he is mis
taken aud is ignorant of the first prin
ciples of railroading. If the Govern
ment should subsidize both the South
ern Pacific anil tlie Texas Pacific to
the full cost of building and equiping,
and stipulate that each should build a
railroad from ocean to ocean, within
twelve months from the date of com
pletion, one company would control
both roads. That there would not be
competition, is the point we sought to
establish, and this point the Express
writes all arouud, but does not touch
nor attempt to refute. If it can be
shown that Scott will refuse all offers
of combination or sale from the South
ern Pacific and will push his own road
on to San Diego and San Francisco re
gardless of where he meets the South
ern Pacilic or how far tho two roads
will run side by side, and
if he will bind himself, his heirs
or assigns, not to buy, sell
or in any way collude or combine
to or with the Southern Pacific, we
shall be in favor of subsidizing his
road from tlie Atlantic to the Pacific,
and shall advocate the measure as
earnestly and persistently as could be
desired by the most uncompromising
opponent of the Southern Pacific Com
pany. We will heed and carefully
weigh all arguments the Express may
advance to this end, and when it has
convinced us that Scott will do this
thing we will join with it heart and
hand and do all in our power to assist
liiin in the accomplishment of the
great and glorious undertaking. We
know that tlie company controlled
by Messrs. Stanford, Crockf.b,
Hopkins, Huntington and Colton
is seeking to control the railroad sys
tem of the Pacific; wo know that
these managers have received vast
sums from the people in the shape of
subsidy, and we know that it is only
where we can make our interest theirs
that we may look for concessions
at their hands, but shall we improve
our condition or change the aspect of
affairs by giving subsidy aid to the
Texas Pacific and withholding it from
the Southern Pacific? By so doing
we will prolong the time when we will
have a Southern overland railroad
and defy the proverb which says it is
better to trust the devil we know than
the devil we don't know.
Testimony of Colonel Morrow.
Nkw Orleans, January 28th.—Be
fore the Congressional Committee, to
day, Col. Henry A.'Morrow testified
that ho found hostility to the General
Government In the State of Louisi
ana. The people do not regard tlie
negro as entitled to the position he
holds. It is objected that he was
given rights to which his education
did not entitle him. He believed that
the people would submit quietly to a
fair election, without the presence of
U. 8. troops, and abide by the result.
He was a Grant man in politics, and
a friend of the President.

James Otis, Mayor.
Washington, January 28th.—The
House is at a dead lock on the Civil
Rights bill. It may be broken on
Monday by a mere majority. To
avoid such contests for the future, a
new rule is proposed, which is that
when any question is before the
House, there shall be but two dilatory
motions entertained —one to adjourn
and one fixing the time to which it
shall adjourn. There is some appre
hension that an extra session may be
necessary, but probably not, if the
night sessions are devoted to busi
It is conceded that the Interior De
partment must apply to both Houses
of Congress for money to pay for the
legal services under the McGarrahan
resolution. Houghton holds that no
legal proceedings can be instituted
under existing laws in which McGar
rahan can intervene. He regards
the House resolution as entirely inef

Washington, January 26th.—The
Postal Telegraph bill introduced by
Butler, of Massachusetts, yesterday,
proposes to declare all telegraph lines
post-routes, and the Postmaster-Gen
eral is authorized to advertise for the

The Tilton-Beecher Case.
New Youk, January 27th.—In the
Beecber ease yesterday, the cross-ex
amination of Moulton was continued
by Tracy aud ex-Judge Porter. He
was questioned with regard to certain
letters and documents in the ca9e, and
as to how Tilton obtained copies of
certain letters, but no material infor
mation was drawn out. The examina
tion was interrupted by Moulton re
ceiving a dispatch announcing the
death of hiß mother, and after a brief
interruption he resumed his testimony,
both aide agreeing to get through with
him and let him go.
Coungpl for defense endeavored to
get in a letter from Clark, published
in the Oolden Age, with a view of
showing the poor financial condition
of the paper, and that Clark consider
ed Tilton a great drawback to the
paper, Court ruled out the letter.
The Wnfcsess admitted destroying some
letters of Beecher to him, he supposed
intentionally. He denied saying to
Mr. Swan that Beecher and lie (wit
ness) had got into a controversy and
one had got to destroy the other.
A Fatal Affray.
Eureka, Nevada, January 28th.—
A murderous affray has taken place at
Blue Eagle Springf, near McDonald's
salt marsh. Three men, Jarvis, Wil
liams and a third whose name is un
known, were en route for Panamint.
They qrfrreled over a division of com
pany ptperty and stopped ever night.
In the morning the unknown man
was found dead with his throat cut.
Jarvis was living, but with terrible
wounds on tlie bead and face. Wil
liams is nowhere to be found, and a
liorse, blf.nkets, arms, etc., are miss
ing. It is supposed that Wilson
killed his partners and decamped.
From San Diego.
San Diego, January 28th.— The re
cent rainfall here amounted to two
inches. The rivers are full. There is
snow in the mountains directly East
of us, for the first time in years.
The Arizona telegraph is down since
Tuesday. Up to that time heavy rains
were reported along the line.
Three men were arrested Monday on
suspicion of robbing the mails, on the
17th iust., between here aud San Luis

sago of a bill to meet the want.
California Pioneers in New York.
Nkw York, January 28th. -- A

A Chilean found in his Cabin Horri
San Rafael, January 27th. — A
murderwas committed on what was
called the White Ranch, eight or nine
miles from this place, about 1 o'clock
yesterday. The murdered man is a
Chilean named Joe, who was, until re
cently, in the employ of A. Mallard.
Joe has had trouble with his neigh
bors, and was arrested on Christmas
for firing at one of their houses. At 3
o'clock yesterday a neighbor went to
his cabin in the redwoods, and found
him dead, with his body horribly
mangled and mutilated by blows from
an axe. In tlie bouse was also found
a man of middle age, who had in his
hand a bloody ax, but had no marks
of blood on his person or evi
dences of having recently engaged
in a struggle. Tlie body was cold and
the deed must have been commit
ted two hours previously. The man
fuddled with liquor and appeared to be
stupid and dazed. He was arrested
and brought to this town and lodged
in jail, but showed nosigu that he was
aware of being accused or suspected of
a great crime. He was unable to tell
his own name or give any account of
himself. It is very improbable he had
anything to do with tbe matter. The
deceased was a man of violent pas
sions, was addicted to drink, and when
drunk was a very dangerous man.
More Narrow - Gange Railroads-The
Salt Lake, January 27th.—There
has been incorporated at this place a
company to build a narrow-gauge rail
road from Salt Lake to Ogden, intend
ing to connect with the Utah Western

The cold weather of the past few days
has hardened the snow and stopped
slides for the preseut.
