CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
THURSDAY, FEB. 4, 1875.
The prospects of the Los Angeles
aud Independence Railroad are rapidly
brightening, and the list of subscrib
ers to the stock is lengthening daily.
As our citizens realize the importance
of this road, its great advantage to the
valley aud the numerous benefits
which will result from it, they become
enthusiastic in its support and
promptly place their names on the
subscription books. We are assured
by the canvassers that the stock is
much easier disposed of now than ten
days or even one week ago. This is
encouraging, and leads us to hope that
the requisite amount of stock —$300,-
--000—will be taken within the next few
weeks and the certain building of the
road rendered an established fact. The
inevitable fact that unless the Los
Angeles and Independence Railroad is
built, we ahall lose the greater por
tion of ourinterior trade should impel
every citizen of Los Angeles valley to
encourage and assist the work to the
utmost extent. If we fail to build
this road within less than one year
from to-day, not a pound of freight
either to or from the mines of Inyo
county will be shipped by way of Los
Angeles, and we shall lose our entire
trade with these mines. This is a fact
that must be looked square in the face.
It is railroad or no trade. We must
build the road.
The Petaluma Argus suggests John
Swett as a candidate for State Super
intendent of Public Schools, and pro
ceeds to eulogize little John as a man
whom nature designed for a model
Superintendent. It wont do. All the
whitewash in the State will not cover
over the black marks which the people
have scored against little John. He
is a scheming little fellow,whom book
rings know how to use. He is a par
tizan of the narrowest, bitterest and
most illiberal character. He compiled
a text book made up of tbe most in
cendiary and dissension-breeding arti
cles that could be collected against the
South and the Southern people. He
was assistant compiler aud is part
owner of Swinton's series of school
books, which he is eternally trying to
force into the public schools. He was
the author of the bill introduced in the
Legislature to reduce the salaries of
lady teachers. He was the instigator,
if not the actual author, of many of
the malicious personal attacks made
on Rev. O. P. Fitzgerald during the
campaign which ended with the elec
tion of Mr. Bolandek, and he is by
nature and inclination a double-deal
ing, intriguing little politician. John
wont do. He ls so unpopular in Sau
Francisco that Widber was defeated
solely because he had John Swett for
A Little Pinch.
There was a little pinch in Sau
Francisco the ether day. Btocks went
down with a crash, aud we are told
tliat many people of small means fell
from the apex of fortune to the abyss
of poverty. Under the excitement
created by the discovery of the great
bonanza, laboring men and women in
vested their earnings in stocks aud
lost in an hour what years of toil had
accumulated. Vast misery will come
of this. Despondency, then despair,
will seize these unfortunates, und the
insane asylum and the drunkard's
grave will hide many of them from
the eyes of the world. Gambling of
any kind is dangerous to people of
small fortunes, and no kind of gam
bling is so dangerous to this class as
stock gambling. The demand for more
"mud," which means an increase of
the percentage paid on stock, is always
an ominous and generally a fatal blow
to the hopes of one who has invested
his little all in mining stocks. He
cannot meet the demaud, and is sold
out. We remember reading in the
Post that the millions made in the
advance in California and Consoli
dated Virginia were made without loss
to anyone; that it was the simple re
sult of the •nhanced value of the
stock. But waa thin advance au illus
tration of the permanent value of
these two mines? The little pinch
the other day seems to us an indica
tion that the ultimate answer must be
in the negative. There will come other
and more disastrous pinches, and there
will be bluer days than any yet seen
on California street. In the early days
of the rebellion a*man named Grid
ley conceived the idea of selling a sack
of flour at auction for the benefit of the
Sanitary Fund. That sack of flour,
worth one dollar and seventy - five
cents, was sold and resold until it net
ted the fund about thirty thousand
dollars. The money was devoted to a
noble cause, but will anyone deny that
In a business point of view twenty
nine thousand nine hundred and nine
ty-eight dollars aud twenty-live cents
of that money was lost? At no time
was that sack of flour worth more than
one dollar and seventy-live cents as a
sack of flour. Now will the Post or
any other stock organ of San Francisco
assert that California, which eight
months ago was dull sale at forty dol
lars per share aud has now been thrown
up to seven hundred dollars per share,
is worth the money. People buy stock
to make money. Will California for
any length of time pay dividends equal
to one per cent, on its stock sold at
Beven hundred per share? People who
purchased California at forty and sold
It foi seven hundred made money—
these are the people whom the Post
says niado the money that nobody
lost. But the people who pur
chased California at seven hun
dred and have it ou hand
when it is discovered that the
mine will only pay interest divi
dends on its stock at forty dollars, will
lose money—these aro the people who
will lose the money that some body
has made, and these are the people to
whose bad luck the Post will not call
attentiou. The real value of Califor
nia is nearer forty dollars than seven
hundred dollars per share to-day, and
sooner or later it must drop from its
stock board ficticious valuation
to its real worth as a mine.
In the slide down the scale the
money made must be lost. The un
fortunate feature of tlie transaction is
that those who have made the money
will not be the ones to lose it. Cali
fornia will doubtless yield immense
wealth but it is impossible that it will
pay interest for any considerable
length of time on the money for
which its stock has been sold. If it
cannot do this, money must be lost.
If it could do this iv place of waver
ing at seven hundred the stock would
go upward until it reached two thou
sand. No one need flatter themselves
that all these millions have been
coined out of nothing nor yet out of
the great bonanza. Into the crucible
has been thrown the toil, honor and
life of thousands. The compound was
the philosopher's stone that converted
nothiug into bright yellow gold, but
it is gold stained with the widow's
tear and blighted with the orphan's
curse —in its sharp ring may be heard
the maniac's shriek.
It is the custom of those journals
owned by or under tlie influence of the
Central Pacific Railroad Company, to
abuse Congressman Luttrell witli
all the vim and earnestness of em
ployes who felt thatcontinued employ
ment depended on earning their
money. It is noticeable tliat these
worthies never attempt a defense of
railroad aggressions which he points
out and opposes, but they fill whole
columns with denunciations of Lut
trell, in which we are assured that
he is the sworn foe of the railroad
company; that he was elected as their
enemy, and that he is a knave and an
imbecile. To what extent he is any of
these characters, his record will tell.
The railroad company know well the
art of capturing knaves, great and
small, yet they have not induced Lut
trell to abandon the people or betray
their rights. If he is the fool we hear
him denounced, the railroad company
and their organs are wasting a great
amount of powder on small game. If
he is the unreasonable and inconsis
tent enomy of the railroad company
he is represented to be, why do they
not meet aud vanquish him '? The
truth is that Luitrkll is neither a
knave nor a fool, nor is he the oppo
nent of the railroad company, except
at such times as the railroad company
place themselves iv antagonism with
the best interests of the people. Ho
is always ready to do battle in defense
of all California, and as an evidence
that he is now doing good service for
the people of Los Angeles, we make
the following extracts from a letter
received from him by a gentleman of
this city yesterday:
U. S. House of Repkesk-ntatives, 1
Wastiington, January 'i% 1875./
DeahSir: Yours received this a. m.; glad
to hear from you. I had anticipated the
wants and Interest of the tax-payers of Los
Angeles, and entered my protest against the
passage of the "Houghton MIL" Asthe bill

in view, viz:

cific road so us to pass up the Salinas valley
and head off the people's narrow gauge road
and still retain the subsidy or grant of land
through Htanisluus, Fresno, Tulare and Kern
2d. To retuin and build a line about 100 miles
to the East of Los Angeles; building a branch
line from the main line to I air Angeles, said
branch line to be built at the rate of 20 miles
per annum, or by the close ofthe year 1885.
3d. To socure the exclusive right of way
through Cajon Pass, to tne exclusion of or
cutting off all competition or right of way to
other roads through said Pass.
4th. To secure the right to build tho west
cud of the Texas or Southern Pacific road,
from tho Pacific Ocean to some point in East
ern Arizona or Western New Mexico, so as to
enable Stanford A Co. to dictate to Scott A Co.,

terms as Stanford may Impose—/. c, to regu

keys to lock or unlock as pleasure the trade and
commerce of lire Pacilic Coast aud rob the

Companies through Cajon and other moun
tain passes In Southern California and Arizo

am for the rights of the people first.
In haste your friend,
J. K. LUTTKELI..
The Common Council have under
consideration a proposition to light
the streets of this city witli gas. The
company making tlie offer is a new one
and their plan is also new. Tlie prop
osition to the Council is, we are told,
very liberal, and the trial may be
made without loss to the tax-payers of
the city. The fact that the gas of
this company is manufactured from
crude petroleum and that we have
thousands of barrels of tills article
running to waste in the San Fernan
do mountains makes the consideration
of this plan one of importance to our
people. The town of Santa Clara is
now lighted with gas generated from
petroleum and the Echo of that place
says of it: "It is giviyg universal sat
isfation to its patrons, and we do not
hesitate for a moment to recommend
the public generally to use it in prefer
ence to any other light. It is more
brilliant, but less dazzling to the eyes
—the best light to read by—can be
used without the slightest danger, and
in the long run is the cheapest,as well
\as the best light tliat can be afforded.
Tho company will furnish their gas at
tlie reasonable price of five dollars iter
thousand feet;" A San Jose Mercury
reporter witnessed atrial of the dif
ferent gases and says: "The gases
were turned through Oumeroui kinds
of burners, and lighted in every possi
ble way calculated to show a differ
ence between them, the petroleum in
every instance producing tlie clearest
and most brilliant light. That there
should be such a marked difference in
the illumination seems almost incred
ible, but those who doubt the state*
meut can examine for themselves."
This trial was witnessed by the Mayor
and Councilmeu of Jan Jose aud all
were highly pleased with the petro
Louisvillk, January 31st. — The
book, for which a reward of £1,000 was
offered by (ialboume, of London, re
lating to the members of the Royal
family of England, has been discov
ered in possession of a gentleman here.
The book, whiih is in two volumes,
was received iv this city in 1873 by a
book-dealer named Taylor, and was
supposed to have been put by mistake
in a case of books ordered from Lon
don. They were afterward purchased
by the present owner. The book is a
memorial of George IV., containing a
minute history of all the scandalous
passages of his life. Among other
matters, the fact of the marriage of
King George to Airs. Fitzherbert is
proven by letters and documents taken
from the royal archives. It also testi
fies that a child was born to Mrs.
Fitzherbert, while in lawful wedlock.
Grant's Louisiana Policy to be En
dorsed by the Senate.
Washington, February Ist.—The
Republican Senators have agreed in
caucus to a resolution endorsing the
course of the President with reference
to affairs in Louisiana and recognizing
Kellogg as de facto Governor of the
State. A resolution embracing these
declarations will be offered and un
doubtedly passed during the week.
The Senate will not commit itself to
an avowal that the Kellogg govern
ment is the de jure government of
Louisiana, ami while many, and per
haps a majority, believe with the Pres
ident, tliat Kellogg has more right
than McEnery to be Governor of the
State, they are not willing, upon the
evidence, to say so.
Pinchback's Prospects Waning.
Washington, February Ist. —It
seems altogether unlikely that Pinch
back will obtain a seat in the .Senate
in any event. He has not in any of
the caucuses received a majority of the
Republicans in the Senate, though he
did obtain a majority of those present.
It is known that some of those who
voted for Pinchback in the caucus did
so very reluctantly, and he would prob
ably not get in the full Senate more
than twenty or twenty-five votes, at
the extreme limit. The talk in the
caucus was very plain, and it was
made clear that many Senators re
garded him as a very unfit person to be
a member of the Senate, aud if he was
admitted immediate action would be
taken looking to his expulsion. Tbe
Committee on Privileges and Elections
may make a favorable report on his
credentials, but action is not likely to
be pressed at present, if at all this ses
Tom Scott's Railroad Scheme.
Washington, February Ist.—The
Senate Railroad Committee held an
other meeting on Tom Scott's railroad
bill this morning, but came to no final
action on any of its features or pro
posed amendments. It is understood
tliat no action will be taken till after
the arrival of Senator JDooley.
The Bill Making Railroad Companies
Liable for Damage to Stock.
Carson, February Ist.—Petitions
and letters are pouring in from all the
stock-raising sections of the State
along the line of the Central Pacific
Railroad praying members of the Sen
ate to pass J. P. Smith's bill, making
railroad companies responsible for
damage to stock, unless they fence
their tracks. In one letter from a
prominent stock - raiser he tells
the Elko delegation—"That unless
you support and pass the bill with the
amendments, we will see in future
that men are elected who will."
Washington, February 2d.—lt was
a field day in the House. There was
a long contest over the rule for the
prevention of iillibustering and par
liamentary delays. The rule was
ado ji ted.
A bill, reported favorably from the
Senate Committee on Civil Service
provides that for two years after the
Ist of July next, all salaries exceeding
$1,200 a year, in all branches of the
Government service, civil aad mili
tary, shall be reduced ten per cent.
Tilton on the Stand.
New York, February 2d.—ln the
Beecher-Tilton trial, the testimony of
Tilton was continued, relating to the
circumstances of the interview at
Moulton's liouse between himself,
Moulton, Woodruff and Tracy, mak
ing a great difference from the story
before testified to by Moulton ami
Woodruff. He testified concerning
several other interviews and to tbe
agreement between liimself, wife and
Beecher to deny the scandal.
Efforts to Effect a Compromise in New
New Orleans, January 31st.—Gov.
Kellogg and Marshall Packard, repre
senting the Republican party, aud
Messrs. Leonard and Jeffries on behalf
of the Democrats, met to-night to ar
range the terms of a proposed compro
mise. Mr. Fry, of tlie Congressional
Committee, was present during the
consultation. One proposition was
that Kellogg be recognized as Gover
nor and Perm as Lieutenant-Governor;
such recognition, however, would in
volve au investigation into the elec
tion of 1872, and the Committee re
fuses to touch upon that point. In
addition to this, it may be mentioned
that the negro element in tlie Repub
lican party will not agree to any set
tlement by which Antoine, the mu
lotto Lieutenant-Governor, loses his
seat. The consultation was continued
until a late hour to-night and then ad
journed till to-morrow evening. Tlio
leading men of both parties are very
sanguine that a compromise will bo
