Why it was Not One of Them.
Irwin stated that $100,000 of the
Pacific Mail bribe money disbursed by
him was sent to the Pacific Coast, and
the San Francisco Post is manifesting
a good deal of curiosity to find out
who got it. It ls confident that it was
paid to newspapers and makes a daily
guess as to what journals received the
money. The Post may or may not be
right, but tlie confidence with which
it asserts that the sum stated was cer
tainly used to secure the silence or
support of newspapers, suggests the
thought that, had the bribers thought
the Pout of sufficient importance to
offer it a slice of the pie, they would
have found it nothing loth to accept
it.
The Aromatic Weed.
There is a great deal of tobacco used
in the world, and a great deal of it
grown in the Cm ted States. The ex
ports for tlie last fiscal year amounted
to 018,097,804 pounds, tlie value of
which was $130,30!), 181. We imported,
leaf and stem, 10,000,000 pounds, worth
$5,332,548 41. Besides this, we im
ported 845,744 pounds, or 78,888,000 ci
gars, valued at $3,038,028. Beside
these, we manufactured from foreign
and domestic material 1,780,961,000 ci
gars. The average daily consumption
is set down at 7,108,000. The revenue
"f the Government is set down at
$39,392,936. Here is food for thought,
as well as musings in sninb*. All
these millions expended for a single
luxury—literally smoked and chewed
away. Won't somebody figure up the
value of the matches consumed in
lighting these cigars and pipes., '
Doing Good work.
Mr. J. A. Johnson, of the Santa
Barbara Press, is doing California
good work in the East. His views
and lectures have been well received
at all points, and the information he
has given relative to the soil, climate,
etc., of this portion of the State is in
ducing many to come out and see for
themselves. We have received visits
from several who heard Mr. Johnson
before leaving their homes in the
East, and all agree that he neither un
derstates nor over estimates the facts.
He has already lectured in New York,
Massachusetts and Connecticut. He
repeated his exhibition of Southern
California views in New York city,
Boston and Hartford, before large au
diences made up not of mere eight
seers but of persons who intend to "go
West," and are seeking information
as to tbe most desirable place to locate.
Mr. Johnson's work will do much in
the way of disseminating correct infor
mation relative to Southern Cali
fornia.
A Slight Error.
Our neighbor, the Santa Barbara
Index, is dissatisfied with tlie route se
lected by Senator Jones and his asso
ciates over which to build a railroad
for the transportation of the ores of
Pauamint to the seaboard, antl holds
Engineer Crawford responsible for
the mistake into which it claims they
have fallen. We have no disposition
to get into an argument with the
Index. It is edited in part by a
woman, and our experience witli
the sex goes far to prove that though
a lady may have the weaker side of
an argument only death or paralysis
will deprive her of the closing speech.
We will, however, venture to remark
that Mr. Crawford was employed in
the capacity of engineer to examine
and report on the feasibility and prac
ticability of building a railroad through
Soledad and Cajon Pass and report his
views and observations of each. He
performed his work faithfully and
laid his report before the Board of Di
rectors of the Los Angeles and Inde
pendence Railroad Company. The
Board saw that Cajon Pass was the
most practicable route and at once
adopted it. The chief error into
which the Index has fallen is concern
ing the object of the parties who em
ployed Mr. Crawford. It seems to
think the road should have been built
from Santa Barbara, while the pur
pose of Senator Jones was and is to
build it to Truxton. We shall not dis
pute the assertion of the Index that a
road can be built from Santa Barbara
through Soledad Pass, but we respect
fully urge that Mr. Crawford is not
in the employ of a company having
that object in view. The accident of
location is the cause of our esteemed
cotemporary's glamour.
How it is Done.
There may have been a time when
a board, a committee or a council was
competent to hear and determine on
charges preferred against one of its
members. We say there may have
been such a time, and we are led to
make this admission through reading
in the records of the far back days, in
stances where such trials resulted in
the substantiation of the charges and
in the conviction of the accused. We
read iv the chronicles of these trials
that the members of the board sought
only for truth and justice; that their
sole purpose was to fairly and thor
oughly investigate the charges and
establish the guilt or innocence of the
accused. If this custom, the existence
of which is supported by these chroni
cles, ever was in vogue it has long
since fallen into disuse and is now re
garded as a legend of the days when
boards were composed of men »who
were too honest to be rascals them
selves or to aid in covering up the ras
cality of others. Times have changed
—changed in this respect at least.
Now 'tis the fashion for members of
the board to screen one of their num
ber who has beeu charged with mis
conduct in office. The accuser must
fight the whole Board which, while it
tries the case, does all in its power to
prevent the introduction of evidence
in support of the charges. It was ou
this plan that the charges of Improper
conduct against a member of the San
Francisco Board of Education was
lately conducted. It is upon this plan
nearly all investigations of a similar
nature are conducted now-a-days. Is
it to be wondered at that the people
are wronged?
A Twice Told Tale.
Looking at the matter from our
standpoint—it is a long way from Los
Angeles to the State Capital—it ap
peal! to us that the negotiation! now
going on between tlie Central Pacific
Railroad Company and the people of
Sacramento about the establishment
ofa rolling mill at Sacramento city, is
but a masked play of the railroad
company to add another straw to the
load beneath which it hopes to crush
the Sacramento Union. They have
said they would kill it if it cost them
a million dollars, and their assumption
that they cannot in justice to them
selves build shops and make other im
provements in Sacramento while the
place assumes an attitude of hostility
to them, is simply bosh, and is intend
ed to influence tlie people against the
Union, and thus aid the company in
effecting its destruction. The true
phase of the case may be stated in a
few words: The railroad managers
will build a rolling mill in Sacramento
if it is to their interest to do so; if it is
not to their interest to build it there
they will build it- somewhere else.
This is all there is about it. This farce
of persecution was played once before
with the removal of the raihoad of
fices for a plot. There was a reconcil
iation and love feast between the rail
road magnates and certain of Sacra
mento's citizens. The Union was
consigned to the lowermost regions,
but the offices went to Sau Francisco
all the same. So it will be about the
rolling mill. The fool-killer has not
been in Sacramento since the Legisla
ture adjourned.
The People's Reward.
It is an old and trite saying that
chickens will come home to roost.
Quite a number of smart politicians
have no reason to write this down in
their book of important facts to be
remembered. The Act of Congress
designated as "the back pay steal"
was pretty generally condemned by the
people, and it appears they made a
long black mark against those who
accepted their proportion of the grab.
Among those Senators who took the
back pay and whose terms expire on
the 3d of March, the following have
been retired: Boreman, West Vir
ginia; Brownlow, Tennessee; Car
penter, Wisconsin; Flanagan, Tex
as, Gilbert, Florida; Lewis, Vir
ginia; Stockton, New Jersey; Stew
art, Nevada; Spßague,lihodelsland;
Tii'ton, Nebraska. This is,we believe,
the full list of back pay taking Sena
tors, aud it is some proof ofthe people's
tenacity of memory that not one of
them has been re-elected.
Congressional News.
Washington, February 12th. —The
question of compromise with tlie
Union Pacific Railroad, as suggested
in Dillon's letter to the Secretary of
the Treasury, was the subject of dis

being more to the interest of the Gov

Legislation on Railroads.
Milwaukee, February 14th.—The
report of the Railroad Commissioners
will probably be delivered to the Leg
islature to-morrow. It will recom
mend the repeal of the Potter law and
the substitution of such legislation as
will authorize the Commissioners to
fix maximum rates of freight and
passage for the first-class roads—viz:
the St. Paul and Northwestern. No
restriction is proposed on second-class
roads. It is proposed also that each
road shall be appraised, and when net
earnings exceed ten per cent, of its
value, the rates shall be reduced.
The New Revenue Bill.
Washington, February 14th.—The
new revenue bill meets with objec
tions both from Republicans and
Democrats. Doubts are expressed
whether it can pass in its present
form.

Charleston, 8. C, February 14th.
—In the National Grange, Saturday,

Foreign News.
London, February 14th. — Prince
Gortschakoff has replied to England's
refusal to participate in the Interna
tional Code Conference at Petersburg.
He says a way will be open for Eng
land to give her adherence to the reso
lutions whether she joins the confer

the reply is attributed to the medita

Dissatisfaction with the Report on
Fares and Freights.
Carson City, February 12.—There
is great dissatisfaction here on the re
port presented by the Committee on
Corporations regarding freights and
fares. The report is regarded as ema
nating from the Virginia and Truckee
Railroad offlce. Although there is a
strong feeling in the Assembly against
the Central Pacific, the Sharon inter
est ts too strong to obtain legislation
adverse to the Virginia and Truckee
road, and any fare and freight bill
must necessarily apply to both roads.
People are beginning to fear that the
session will go over without legisla
tion on fares and freights.
Mrs. Stenhouse is lecturing to a
