A committee composed of F. P. F.
Temple, Col. J. G. Howard, Major
Frank Ganahl and Chief Engineer
Crawford, leave this morning for
the Southern part of the county on a
canvassing tour for subscriptions to
the stock of the Los Angeles and In
dependence Railroad Company. The
rumor that the people of Anaheim
and vicinity were so opposed to the
building of the Independence Road
that they would take no stock in it, is,
we are informed, without foundation.
We are not astonished to hear this.
The people of the lower portion of the
county cannot overlook the fact that a
continuous line of railroad from Ana
heim to the mines of Inyo county will
be a mine of wealth to them, by af
fording a ready market for their sur
plus products of every kind. In fact
every portion of Los Angeles valley
will be benefited by the building of
this road. We want a market for
what we grow that will not cost half
the value of the article in transporting
it to the place of sale. Every farmer
and every producer iv this valley must
see that railroad communication with
the mines gives not only a good mar
ket but one that will buy all we have
to sell. This is an important fact aud
one that cannot be set aside or covered
up. The people of Anaheim and the
farmers of that part of the county will
not stand in their own light, and we
believe they will meet the committee
with the spirit of enterprising citi
The Queen of the Antilles.
For three centuries the Kings of
Spain have ruled with despotic power
over the destinies of the people of
Cuba, aud, until recently, over all
Mexico, Central America, and a large
portion of South America —their title
to the same having been acquired by
the sword, and the subsequent grant
of the Pope of Rome. During all this
time these vast possessions have been
treated by them as the "land of
Ophir," whence their coffers were re
plenished, and their courtiers and ad
herants rewarded by office, with carte
blanche powers to oppress and eat out
their substance. This policy contin
ued uninterruptedly down to the year
1776, when the North American colo
nies of Great Britain startled the
world by their manly Declaration of
Independence. From that time the
Spanish colonies took courage, and
began to consider the situation. The
Orita de Libertad enunciated iv 1810,
at the small town of Moselia, Mexico,
by the patriot Hidalgo, was the re
sult, aud since that time all the vast
continental colonies of Spain have suc
cessfully thrown off the Spanish yoke
and entered upon the experiment of
Republican government, with varied
success. In all these great struggles
our Government granted no material
aid, but individuals did, aud the elo
quence of Clay in Congress, in behalf
of these struggling patriots, was as
an "army with banners." In propor
tion as the power of Spain decreased
on the continent, it was concentrated
on the "Queen of the Antilles," which
was always held as her base of opera
tions against her continental colonies,
and down to the present hour she
holds that beautiful island within her
enfeebled grasp, notwithstanding the
numberless unsuccessful attempts of
her patriots to throw off the galling
yoke. These frequent miscarriages
and failures, instead of crushing out
the spirit of liberty in that island,have
been the "blood of the martyr in
strengthening their cause." Hence
for the last five or six years, has the
wail of the patriot been wafted across
tbe waters of the gulf to our shores,
and re-echoed from valley to hill-top,
and from city to hamlet, calling upon
us,as the great conservatives of Liber
ty, to reach them an assisting hand
Their pathetic appeals have reached,
the hearts of nine-tenths of the people
of this Republic, and yet our Govern
ment seems so absorbed in its own
dirty schemes of personal agrandize
ment, that their appeals have failed to
attract its attention, and these
straggling patriots, almost with
in hailing distance of our shores,
are left to the tender mercies of the
"Bourbon butcher." Viewed only in
t national point of view, this question
iemands the prompt aud serious con
sideration of our Government. This
island lies almost within the lips of
the mouth of the Mississippi, and is
the natural key to its commerce—a
river that, including its tributaries,
drains a country capable of feeding and
clothing one-half the civilized world.
In the possession of effete Spain, Cuba
is, at least, a living menace to this
Republic; in the possession of a great
naval power it would be humiliation!
But, says the casuist, it will never fall
into the hands of a great naval power.
Are we sure of this? Politically, Eu
rope this day is a Vesuvius, ready to
burst forth at any time. With heavy
balances to adjust, we see war with
rapid strides approaching from every
quarter. Russia is again turning her
attention to "the sick man of Tur
key," and Eugland is Jealous of her
possessions in the East; France is
abiding her time and awaiting her
opportunity, whilst Prussia is prepar
ing for every emergency, and Austria,
writhing under the disgrace inflicted
upon her a few years ago by Bis
marck, is sullenly awaiting the turn
of events; and effete and revolutionary
Spain, after passing through tie throes
of maternity In bringing forti several
forms of Government, has a length
discarded the counsels of Cas"ellar,
the noblest and purest statesuan she
ever produced, and gone batk, like
" the sow to her wallow," ant called
upon the putative son of Ssrkano
and Isabella to give her pea®. The
boy has already ascended the throne
and is now loudly calling up»n sur
rounding monarchies for assistance in
maintaining himself in that position,
with nothing but the "Queen jf the
Antilles" as a consideration! Under
these circumstances, what assirance
have we that this island —the key to
the Mississippi —will not fall into the
hands of some great naval power with
treaties of alliance, offensive ai,d de
fensive, with others? The slothful
statesman may say, in answer to all
this, "Sufficient unto the day is the
evil thereof;" but we hold that the
true standard of greatness in the
statesman is to avert dangerous com
plications rather than to successfully
meet them at great public cost in blood
and money when they arise. With
Cuba in the hands of a great naval
power, the history of the Dardanelles
may be repeated and Havana become
the port of entry and clearance for the
commerce of the Mississippi, and trib
ute collected beneath the frowning
guns of Moro Castle, whose thunders
may be heard on the capes of Florida,
one of our sovereign States. As a lib
crfy-loving people, it is our duty to
aid the struggling patriots of Cuba and
to grant them at least belligerent
rights. In a national point of view,
our safety demands that Cuba should
be ours. In 1844, when a speck of war
appeared in the horizon with reference
to our Northwestern boundary with
England, "Fifty-four, forty or fight!"
was grafted as a plank in the platform
of one of our political parties. The day
is not far distant when the legend,
"The Queen of the Antilles—a star in
the American constellation — peace
ably if we can, forcibly if we must,"
will be adopted as a leading plank in
the platform of the American people.
After many unavoidable delays and
vexatious interruptions, we think, we
may safely say that dredging has
fairly begun. Those who have wit
nessed the working of the machinery,
that are capable of judging, say that
everything is in excellent running
order. And had it not been for the
worthless chains scut from San Fran
cisco, from time to time, dredging
would have been under full headway
several weeks ago. Another chain
was received yesterday from the same
city. We hope it will stand. But
acting upon the principle, we suppose,
that "a burnt child dreads the fire,"
General Boschke has ordered an Eng
lish chain from Mew York, which has
been thoroughly tested. When this
arrives, which will be in a few days,
We expect to chronicle some rapid
work. The dredging machinery is
very powerful; but so far, not one-half
of its capacity has been used. The
weakness of the chain wouldn't per
mit it. As it was the number of
breakages of the chain didn't allow a
half day's work.
We, as well as others, have care
fully watched the preparations for this
great enterprise, with no little inter
est, and all agree that, from some
cause or other, Gen. Boschke has been
grossly imposed upon. A man came
to him with good recommendations to
put the machinery together, yet lie
proved to be notoriously incompetent,
and his entire work had to. be over
hauled. While there were some good
men among the less responsible em
ployees, yet many of them were the
merest shirks, which was a double
misfortune, occurring when It did, be
cause the Railroad Company had
every available man in this commu
nity employed upon their improve
ments. The best iron was purchased,
and a good price was paid to a San
Francisco man, who had a reputation
for such work, to make a chain. This
is almost worthless. There were also
many other interruptions which we
will not mention. Yet, in the midst
of all this, General Boschke displayed
a perseverence and a good temper that
is highly creditable t« that gentle
But we turn to a more pleasant
phase of our enterprise. Constant
changes are going on in the bay, and
they are all in our favor. The break
water is daily becoming more im
bedded; as we said some time ago,
about ten thousand cubic yards of
sand in the line of dredging has been
carried away; and the water is cutting
a new and straighter channel next to
the ocean. More recent examinations
have disclosed other changes. Three
months ago a dredging map was made
for seven feet of water at low tide, in a
certain locality; a month later, for
eight feet: more recently, for nine
feet. In the line of the channel it is
also discovered that holes are being
scooped at intervals, where the bot
tom is soft ; and at the point of the jet
ties where the water gets a sort of a
whirl, the excavations are very deep.
This induces the belief that the scour
ing of the water only needs the aid of
the dredger at the rocky, hard points
to perform a greater portion of the
work. And it must be borne in mind,
too, that the drift is all seaward, while
there is no evidence of shoaling on the
outside. As to the direction of the
current that scatters this sand, we are
not able to say. We merely state the
Again we record our convictions
that our harbor prospects present
nothing but the most convincing evi
dences of its ultimate, and not very
distant, success.— Enterprise.

the appointment of teachers was
opened yesterday at the Lincoln
School by a special committee of the
Board of Education. Reporters were
excluded. The testimony will, how
ever, be made public on the conclus

the committee examined about fifty
witnesses, and the inquiry was re

information it is known that the ex
amination yesterday brought out the
fact that Owens, ex-janitor, and Kuh

has gone East, approached parties,
offering to procure them situations in
the School Department for a consider
ation. Some witnesses testified that
they knew teachers who purchased
positions through Owens, Kuhnert
and Stewart, but In no case was money
traced to any member of the Board,
though suspicion is aroused that some
went that way. Eight subpoenas were
immediately issued. Owens, the ex
janitor, is said to be a man of some
education, shrewd and cunning. The
teachers, in the light of what is now
shown, begin to understand many

SAN Gauriel, April 20, 1874.
My little boy, over two years old, has suf
fered terribly for more than a year from ob
struction of the urinary organs. All means
of relief seemed unavailing, until I was ad
vised to consult with Dr. LEALof Los Angeles.
Alter a critical examination he found and re
moved a stone from the uretha weighing live
grains. Immediately relief followed, and my
child Is now well. W. J. JONES.
Grateful, not only for entire relief from terri
ble suffering of seven years' Standing, hut v
perfect cure of Internal piles by an operation
scarcely more painful than toy dally suffer
ings before the operation, i feel it a duty]
owe to those similarly ufllicled to give this tes
timonial oi ihe skillful and efficienl treatment
of DR. J. H. LEA of Los Angeles, Dr. Lenl's
success Is more highly appreciated from the
fact that several of the prominent physicians
of Los Angeiss had healed tne without under
standing my disease, and of course wiihout
success. ISA I Si) L MARTIN.
