CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
THURSDAY APRIL 15, 187.).
A restraining order was grunied by the
District Court on Monday, in the matter of
shut ting oil'the conueei ion qi l bei omnieivail
street sewer with zanja No. 8. The argument
on the quest ion of grunting v perpetual in
junction will bo heard in v Few days
This is a matter of the utmost im
portance to a large portion of flic pop
ulation iv the lower or Southern por
tion of Litis city, and now is the time
to settle this question definitely and
finally. That the sewage matter from
the city must be carried off by a main
sewer, made for that purpose, is a ne
cessity acknowledged by all. Then
why delay it ? The health ot the city
demands it, and the good souse of the
authorities should not allow it to he
delayed one day. We know it is a
difficult and expensive work, hut It
will cost no more now than it will a
year hence. Our credit is good, and
ten year bonds can be readily sold at
full prices to meet the expense. Many
of our citizens below town are com
pelled to use zanja water for domestic
purposes.
Rents.
It is astonishing how rents keep up.
Notwithstanding the unprecedented
mimber of buildings that have been
put up in this city during the lust six
months, rents are still rising. It
speaks well for the prospects of the
city, but it is awful on poor tenants.
We rejoice at the prosperity of our
property holders and hope they may
always realize a fair percentage on
their investment, but they must re
member that there is such a thing as
over-shooting the mark. It is the
working, Industrious class of people
that make tlie prosperity of a ci y,
and so loug as the expense of living
falls below the iucome, they will con
tinue to pour into the city. But when
the expense of living consumes all
they can earn, leaving nothing to lay
up for a rainy day, immigration stops.
The property owners are always more
directly interested in the growth of a
city than any other class; therefore,
they should be careful to so adjust
their rents as to encourage immigra
tion. Many cities have received a
terrible backset by acting upon the
plan of the old adage, " killing the
goose that laid the golden egg." There
is no betler investment in California
thau that of putting up buildings in
Los Angeles. There has never been v
time w hen a fair rent could not be ob
tained for comfortable buildings, and
now it is simply "ask and receive."
King of the Lobby.
Sam Ward —the immortal uncle
sam! Though full of the extreme in
fluences of Europeau civilization, he
is a thoroughly American product.
His life is a perfect epic iv its way.
Once a wealthy banker, he is a j>enni
less politician now. The widower of
two wives, he is to all intents and
purposes au old bachelor; he looks like
one and lives like one. It is said there
is a poetical sensuality about his name
that makes a Senator, or Congress
man's mouth water. They associate
it with ortoldus, trutfeed capons,
cauvas-backs aud pampanos, of Bur
gundy and old Bordeaux, with a gold
en bowl full of Cognac. Though pen
niless he occupies a position ami exer
cises a certain influence in the affairs
of the nation. He has occupied posi
tions of trust and honor in different
countries but is the same veritable
Sam Ward in every place — good
hearted, jolly, quick of perception,
with a wonderful memory, and has a
knack of making himself agreeable to
everybody, treating everybody alike
ami caring for uobody in particular.
Many statements have been made as
to his career in Washington, but all
more or less incorrect. His own ac
count, us given to a New York re
porter is to the effect that be came to
Washington in 18G5 iv behalf of the
New York bankers, to aid iv procur
ing the passage of Mr. Hugh McCul
locqh'h contraction bill. He brought
$1,000 in his pocket with permission
to draw for as much more as tbe ne
cessity of the case required. He did
draw for $12,000 more and the bill was
passed to tbe satisfaction of the hank
ers. This was a new occupation to
Sam, and his stock In trade consisted
of a pliable conscience, a pleasant
temperament, a good knowledge of
humau nature and a fine gastronnmi
cal taste.
The fi-st dinner I ever gave here was to a
party of twelve—nine Republicans, two Dem
ocrats aud myself, Ou that day (Jen. Uiirneld
bad a quarrel with Jim Brooks,aud Fernando
Wood another- quarrel with Gen. Schenck. 1
1 turned of tliesnquanels on tlie afternoon ot
the dinner day and immediately burred to
Welcker's and changed all the seats, f the
party, so that Garfield should sit oy the side
of Brooks and Wood by the side of Schenck.
I o.dered Welcker to serve his verM'r&CNt hock
with the oysters, a noble old sherry with the
soup, and an exquisite Chateau Yqucm with
lie tish. I knew that would be v fair start.
Tbe glasses were always kepi full, and In less
than a quarter of un hour after the dinner hud
begun Garfield hud concluded peace with
Brooks and Wood with Schenck. Whm an
other bottle of choice old Johanuisbergor hnd
beeu drunk :iiey not only shook hands witii
euch other, but were reudy to drink Briliier
tclutft. It is my usual p .licy not only to be
friends Willi everybody but to reconcile those
who show any Inclination to quarrel among
themselves; and there is no better means of
doing so than by giving tbcm a flue meal and
tine wines.
lv a lew days I had another party of twelve,
und then another. The subject 1 wus Inter
ested in was thoroughly discussed at these
dinners, and the bill passed by a majority of
seven votes. It was not a great victory, but it
was a great success for me, lor It was the first
experiment. Subsequently I came every year
Ut Washington, und had always two or three
affairs of that sort on huud. Oue of theiu,
among others, was the lottery tux, where I
acted on behalf oi John Morrlsey, who pre
sented the rather exceptional sight of a man
exerting his best efforts to be taxed, knowing,
lof course, that none of his competitors could
afford to pay the tax and that by its hem
imp., sed he would renndii almost alone ln tbe
field
Though my policy of handllngmy guests by
means oi jovii.lty und good fellowship re
mains substantially the same, the dinners
them.seive, naturally change according to
circumstances. A Senatorial dinner must be
inor« Stately than a dinner of M. C's. The
first are always more mherehe, and I believe
I look myself more dignified upon such occa
sions. With the members of the House,on
the other hand, a free and easy way Is admis
sible, and tlie dinner contains, as a rule, one
great dish spcoiullv prepared for the occasion,
the rest of tho hi Hot fare being ol the usual
character. For instance. I will sometimes
serve them a hum. I soak it,for four days in
water, changing It lour times a day, then boll
it Aye Imum In cider with a wisp of new hays
then I baste II with brsndy, sherry, or claret,
according to the weather, and when they have
tasted s slice of that ham, why, they will perm
any damned thing I want in Congress! Q
course things like that os( mc a good deal of
trouble, tor 1 must not only compose Ihe bill
of fare, bat must see thai the things vi c prop
erly cooked and the table properly served,

SAN FRANCISCO LETTER.
A SMooil Mup nnd a Valiant Crew—A
Plchsiii.i Trip Going Dast-A < run
in, Villngt— Tne Political Pot.
Never since that juvenile period
when, through v misunderstanding of
the order, or from sheer cussedness,the
man at the wheel puther hard a-port
when he should have held her steady,
and foundered my slab craft in the
mid-ocean of a seething duck-pond,
have I had a desire to go down to the
sea in a ship, or even a steamer. I
don't like ships after they leave the
ways, and 1 dislike the sea, except
when I can see it from the beach.
But when dire necessity forces me on
the briny deep—when I have no alter
native but sea-sickness or to go afoot
—may 1 alsvays be so fortunate as to
strike the Orizaba. She is a popular
steamer Willi Los Angeles people,and
in fact .with all who travel ou. the
Southern coast, and she deserves her
popularity. Her commander, (.'apt.
Johnson, has made 274 trips on her,
and in such good condition are both
vessel and muster that there is no b ll
ing which wiii wear out first. Capt.
Johnson makes himself the friend of
all who travel with him. Treating
all witii uniform politeness and kind
ness, he is universally popular with
all. Like master, like man; his sub
ordinates are careful, courteous and
accommodating. There tireuogium
bling entanglements under the man
agement of tiie affable and painstak
ing purser, Mr. Buckmaster. The
steward, Mr. Holland, regards all on
board as under his especial care for
the time being, and he is ever ready
to supply the kindest - hearted and
most attentive of stewardesses, Mrs.
Dwyer, with delicacies for those who
lose tht it appetite the moment they
leave the land. When Idogo to sea,
which i do not intend shall happen
often, I do not want a-twiLu-ahip thau
the Oiizubn, a better officer than Cap
tain Jnhnsoiij a better purser than Mr.
Buckmu-tei', a better steward than
Mr. Holland, nor a kinder and better
stewardess* than Mrs. Dwyer.
FOOD AND ATTENTION.
In Los Angeles I heard some com
plaints about the food furnished on
some of Goodall, Nelson «fc Perkius'
steamers, and one lady assured me
that the waiters were wasting in at
tention to passengers. What may
have happened ou other steamers, I
do not know, but neither oue nor the
other of these complaints will hold
good against the Orizaba. Her table
is loaded with the substantial and
luxuries of the season and more at
tentive and obliging waiters I have
never seen. I can recommend the
Orizaba, her officers and her table to
the traveling public.
A PLEASANT TRIP.
We left the anchorage at Wilming
ton about 6 o'clock on Thursday night
and tied up at the foot oi Market
street at 3 o'clock on Saturday after
noon—making a quick and pleasant
trip, which is more than the passen
gers who left on the Sunday previous
are abie to say. as they found it rougli
and (here was a good deal of looking
over the side.
GOINO EAST.
General Crook and your townsman,
I. W. Hellman and family, are stop
ping at our house—the Lick—and to
morrow evening a grand reception
and bail will be given in honor of
Gen. Crook and the rest of us—that
"rest of us" sounds rather loud, and I
may as well admit that but for Gen.
Crook the thing woultl not come off.
On Wednesday morniug Crook, Hell
man, Mott, Forster and many others
known and unknown in i.os Angeles,
leave for New York.
SAN FRANCISCO.
San Francisco has made tremendous
strides in the way of huge buildiugs
and money-getting within the past
year. I shall not attempt to enume
rate the many large edifices that have
grown up since I left the city, one year
ago. There are hundreds of them! I
have met a number of fellows whom
I used to see at free-lunch tables, who
now do not see either me or the free
lunch spread. They went up on the
big bonanza. But, per contra, I now
see several fellows about the free
lunch that I never saw there before.
The big bonanza flattened them out.
THE POLITICAL CAT
Is jumping around quite brisk, but
beyond meeting 75 or 80 candidates
for Governor, I have not learned much
of pussy's movement. Shall know
more when I have learned more.

Government Secrets.
Los Angeles, April 13tb.
Editor Herald: Your article on
Government secrets Is about the best
pen-stroke we have seen that has yet
been given towards the opening of the
people's eyes to the disgusting arti
tiflees practiced in the political camp,
bearing the name of Government se
crets, and the impress of him of
wooden-horse fame, yclept Ulysses,
who, perhaps, of all secret frauds, Is
the greatest that ever was perpetrated
on a hero-loving public. We ones
lived In New Orleans, aud we now in
voluntarily bid our better half to
guard again the only silver spoon (a
revolutionary relic) that is left us, at
the very thought, much less the ox
listeneeof Government secrets. But
the song of " When this cruel war is
over" is now heard and Pinchbeck,
under the operation of the Force bill,
is emptying himself in the chorus of
all his secrets, and while the chant is
going OQ, do you, Colonel, just keep
time on the anvil with now and then

Boston Herald on Gov. Booth.
Boston, April 9th.—The Herald,
after, reviewing Governor Booth's
creditable career, says: It is evident
now that no third party will be formed
for oppprai ions in IS7tt. except, in the
event of President Giant's renomina
tion. Should that occur a lender would
be wanted and Booth would stand a
fair chance to be the man. He has
not yet exhibited his powers to the
Senate where he took his scat last
month, aud it is evident he must
gain his position (here by real work
rather than by striking address or per
sonal magnetism. His intellect may
lack something of warmth but, it is
logical and tenacious. It is certain
the railroad interests of the Pacific
Coast found him a vigilant, active and
undaunted opponent, and he gained
confidence, if lie didn't excite the en
thusiasm of his associates and fol
lowers.
The CUizen says of the Connecti
cut election, that the patent lesson of
the result is that the Republican party
ennnot successfully undertake to ap
prove and defend the errors of its na
tional administration, and the name
of the President is not a potent rally
ing cry Fast or West; and if there ever
was it design on the part of anybody
to make him a Republican candidate
for a third term, the Connecticut elec
tion is a significant warning that it
will not do to Uy it.
Union Pacific Divident
Chicago, April 9th.—A Washing
ton special says the Union Pacific
Railroad Company is likely to soon
have another serious subject to con
sider, as there is little doubt but that
the Attorney-General is examining
the law to ascertain whether the gov
ernment can enjoin payment of the
dividend by the company to stock
holders, as has been announced they
will soon do. It is maintained that
that the first duty of the Union Paci
fic Company, after payment of the in
terest on its first mortgage, is te look
after the second mortgage. The Soli
citor of the Treasury is understood to
have so advised.

ered the fire before any damage could
occur. Among the combustibles
used was a leaf torn from a diary on

yesterday morning in Oakland creek,

American Exchange Hotel, in this
city, about ten days ago, the body ev
idently having been iv the water that
length of time.
Last evening the Coroner held an
inquest on the remains. The physi
cian who examined the body declined
