CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
TUESDAY APRIL-1), 18T.>.
The Political Situation.
The new departure iv American pol
itic*, which occurred in 1872, was pre
cipitated by a few Republicans who
bolted the party ranks because of their
opposition to Grant's re-election.
The Convention at Cincinnati, which
nominated Mr. Greki.ey for the Pres
idency and which threatened to split
the Republican party, resulted in the
dividing of the Democratic party.
The Grant Republicans soon discov
ered that this would be the result.
The discovery of this fact secured the
nomination and re-election of General
Grant. The third-term party are
playing the same reticent game now.
Will the Independents and Democrats
learn wisdom from experience. If
these two parties unite on one candi
late there is some hope of success;
but it three tickets are In the field,
General Grant will serve a third
term and as many more as he may
desire.
Land Sharks.
The Sacramento Record - Union is
exorcised muchly in behalf of the poor
emigrants that fall into the hands of
Southern " land sharks," as the col
onization companies are termed by
that journal. It is only a small bunch
of sour grapes, and it has set tbe Rec
ord's teeth on edge. He will get over
it by-and-bye. There will be immi
gration enough to satisfy all California
before the end of the yeer. We are
very sorry to see that the prosperity
of Southern California has excited the
jealousy of our neighbors. Sacra
mento and San Francisco, the old
father and mother of all California,
are terrible fussy over us. What's the
matter, old pap, ain't we one of your
children? Does it make you mad to
see us getting up in tbe world—a little
lode pendant? Shame on you; you
must be in your dotage. Good old
sensible parents rejoice to see their
children prosperous and happy. Be
have yourselves, or your neighbors
will all laugh at you. We are really
ashamed of your conduct, and if you
don't stop it we will sever the family
connection before long.
Nevada Immigrants.
The Aevu— ... , ~.
' . . "fe chuckling
over their success In securing J *»
number of immigrants than Califor
nia. But the San Francisco Post says
"their humor is mingled with lamen
tation over the fact that they have re
ceived au accession of several thous
ands of destitute people from the
throug." We shall be agreeably sur
prised if the same cause does not pro
duce lamentation in other quarters
before midsummer. We would sug
gest to some of our citizens who are
devising means to induce immigra
tion to Southern California that there
is far more danger that we shall have
more than we want, than tht?r» is thut
we shall not have e.»«ugh. A gradual
influx of intelligent, industrious peo
ple into a new country is very desira
ble and always beneficial; but au
overwhelming tide of immigrants of
any class is not beneficial, and if they
are in destitute circumstances, it is
both a misfortune to the immigrants
and disastrous to the prosperity of the
country. We are glad to see a healthy
increase of population, aifd we have
no fears but we shall have as many as
we need, without any further effort on
our part. The fact is, we have been a
little too much advertised already.
Official Peculation.
We dip the following from the San
Francisco Call of the 16th instant:
The corn plaint Is general throughout Ihe
Sf h; c ol' oppressive ta> at ion. Ills beginning
to (>■ discovered by the people that they have
not heretofore ».\crciscii proper Judgment In
tie-selei tion of iin ir county officers, and thut
toe Helal ies in m .st cases are out of ail pro
portion to iln; duties performed. fcxtravu
(.ance and peculation have been Ihe order of
the day. Irresponsible nnwiupuious men
t.ike little though I how (lie money is to be
raised ior conducting the pubhc ser'vioe; and
care less upon whom the luirdei.s are to fall,
if they can provide handsomely ior their own
comfort. Rings have been formed by which
this class perpetuate their power. The facility
with which they can secure bondsmens is au
incentive to official uspiratlons; and when
they default tbe counties are put to the expense
of prosecuting them, without, except in rare
instances, being able to r-xover any part of
the plunder. ■
We endorse the above with one ex
ception. The salaries of county offi
cers is not out of all proportion to the
duties they have to perform. Nor is
it their high salaries that burden the
people with taxes. But "extrava
gance and peculation have been the
order of the day," and it is this that
burdens the people. We could even*
double the salaries of our county offi
cers ami never feel it, if they were
honest and faithful. We "want good
men in office, anil we are willing; to
pay them liberally. The time has
past when good men seek office for the
honor it confers, and that old-fashion
ed patriotism which brought the
best men to the front, is obsolete.
Men work for pay now, aud there is
hardly an office in the gift of the peo
ple that pays a competent man as
much as he can make at some other
business. It is this half pay system
which puts the offices into the hands
of rogues. Good men refuse to accept
office because they will not steal; bad
men seek office, not for the salary, but
because it affords them an opportunity
to steal. Let us have no more officers
than tsnd let us pay them
well, and there will be no inducement
to steal. The high salary howl is a
flabby old argument gotten up by
'igues and demagogues to create a
Ben "ttlou among unthinking people.
Pay e\^, r y officer a liberal salary, and
give all tu, s lo t ne C Q Un t y>
The Fountain of Youth.
Tho early Spanish explorers made
many vain attempts to feach a fabu
lous fountainof youth, forgetting thai
youth and health are inherent and
not to be renewed after being once lost
to man. They naturally nought this
fabled renewer of youth amidst birds,
flowers, and fruits, but found i! not.
To-day the fountain of youth is still
sought by the enfeebled and care-worn
mort*l9. Thousand* ot'invalid* seek
it,ii> Florida and the West Indies dur
ing the Winter, and eontiuue tbe
search during the Hummer in Colora
do, Saratoga, Cape May, the Catskill*,
and the White Mountains. Millions
are annually spent at these much
vaunted resorts, andyet they have not
a tithe »»f the advantages of Southern
California. In Los Angeles we have
the balmy atmosphere of Florida and
the West Indies, without the malaria
and pestilence which blights those
fair lands. We have the cool
breezes of Cape May and the
Catskills without the harshness
which characterizes the Atlan
tic slope and its snowy mountains.
These are our fountains of youth, and
hat! Dk Soto penetrated to this point,
he might have found the fabled pool
which he sought vainly in the jun-
gles of Louisiana. The gentle breezes
would have fanned his fevered brow;
tbe warm sun would have mantled his
wasted cheeks; the beautiful scenery
would huve inflamed his religious
fervor. Those health-giving qualities
we offer to the world at larg». The
land in the neighborhood may be
bought for a price, but the climate is
always thrown in. This is a bonus
the purchaser always receives without
charge, mi l yet it is as valuable to man
as the land itself. To the thousands
of invalids seeking health we say,
"Come to Los Angeles." Here you
will find Florida and the West Indies
in Winter and Colorado and Saratoga
I*ll Summer. Here is Ihe perpetual
Spring sung by ancient poets, making
youth and health attainable by all.
The Press to Blame.
It might be well for the press, an
agency that is all-powerful to make
and unmake reputations, to pause and
consider to what extent it is responsi
ble for thedemoralization so prevalent
in official circles. Without taking
into account the undeserved promi
nence into which weak men have
been puffed and the injury done to
public nilerents by the carelessness of
newrpapit writers in this particular,
it is phi in ihat we are to blame to
some extent for the great distaste
sn<>».. „ , « ,•,
r "«i " <>C character and abil
ity, for utiles. An aun, . r . 0
conscientious man, with good business
habit*, i an always secure a good busi
ness, 'rhere, free from the supervision
of others, he can earn a larger sum
than is usually paid to our county and
State officials. Such a man does not
care to sacritice bis independence aud
meet the storm of abuse and detrac
tion that always confronts the candi
date for office.
Matrimony in America.
In ideal matrimony the husband and
wife are not absorbed into eacli other
by any means. They remain totally
separate individuals, witli their own
aims, desires, and loves, but blending
as it were into one whenever union is
necessary. The wife in this marriage
is no slave or toy of her husband, but
his equal, companion, friend and ad
viser, inspirer, stimulator, and even
agitator. Him she meets witli open,
frank eyes, not in the barbarous fash
ion of Western Europe, abashed and
submissive; antl him she leads on to a
higher and nobler life, not administer
ing to his base material comforts and
ease, but urging him ever onward and
upward. The ideal husband, knowing
her to be his equal ill every respect,
mentaland moral, uaturally regards
her with the deeper veneration that
she is physically his inferior. This
ideal condition, according to the ac
count of many foreign observers, actu
ally exists somewhere in this country
—where we have never seen statetl,
but probably not in Connecticut, Indi
ana or Illinois.— The Galaxy.
It existsiu Wyoming Territory.
Coal Mine Strikers.
New York, April 16th.—A dispatch
from Pottsvllle, Perm., says tbe secret
of the long continuance of tbe strike
and of the miners living so comforta
bly and keeping up a bold front is in
the credit system always pursued by
the merchants. It was impossible in
the outset to refuse to credit regular
customers, who had always before
paid promptly, and as no one knew
howsoon the suspension would end,
the merchants were induced to keep
on throwing good money after bad, in
the desperate hope that a favorable turn
in the financial tide would bring it all
back again. But at last wholesale
dealers have taken alarm, and are re
fusing to sell goods to this region ex
cept for cash. Without fresh supplies
retailers will soon have nothing for
their customers except empty shelves.
One firm of general dealers is credited
with $42,000 already invested in the
strike. Many others have $5,000 to
$20,000 on their books. John Blvey,
President of the National Labor Asso
ciation, is quoted as saying that the
strike is on its last legs.
Emma Mine Case.
New York, April 16th.—The line of
defense iv the £mma mine litigation
is shown very clerly in the answer of
Trenor W. Park to the complaint of
the Emma Mining.Company of Utah
and England, which is published to
day. The answer in effect is that the
plaint ills made their investment with
wide open eyes, having previously
taken pains to satisfy themselves as to
the trutli of the statements of defend
ants, and that defendant* are not prop
erly chargeable with the failure of the
investment to be aj remunerative as
was expected.
Down to Zero.
Chicago, April 16th.—The weather
turned suddenly cold last night, and
early to-day the mercury was iv the
neighborhood of zero. Tbe water pipes
froze, and to-day is like a day in De
cember.
Railroad Caution.
New York. April Kith.-The Phil
adelphia and Reading Railroad has
adopted a plan of running pioneer
engines ahead of all passenger trains.
The miners are becoming very sick
of the contest and are leaving in con
siderable numbers for other parts of
the country. It is said that the way
they anathematize miners' unions is
something very strong.
Sharkey and Tweed
New York, April 18th. —A Havana
dispatch says the legal complications
between the Spanish and American
officials make it now very doubtful
when Sharkey will be returned to New
forE
Another half a million of Tweed's
property hits been attached 111 West
chester county.
Hunting Frauds.
New Yokk, April lOlh.-A Wash
ington special says Senator Spencer of
Alabama exhibits so much interest in
the discovery of the mail contract
frauds that some uncharitable people
intimate that he is In some way com
plicated therein, though his solicitude
in the matter is generally supposed to
be on account of several friends of his
who arc known to be in trouble con
cerning it.
Wool Market Unsettled.
Boston, April 19th.—There has been
a fair amount of business in wool, but
the trade continues unsatisfactory.
Holders are disposed to close up stocks
as fast as possible. Manufacturers are
quite Indifferent about future supplies
and are purchasing only for immedi
ate wants.
In California wool the transactions
ofthe week have been 21,800 lbs. Fall
at 15f<c25c; 10,000 lbs. Spring [email protected]
The receipts of Fall wool have beeu of
much better quality and coudition than
any previously received.
Overland Blockade.
Salt Lake City, April 16th.—Quite
a number of passengers, among them
General Crook, are here awaiting re
pairs of the Union Pacific Railroad in
order to proceed Eastward. The pas
senger train due at Ogden the 14th,
and all since then, have not yet ar
rived. It is understood that the trou
ble extends for a distance of about ten
miles along Bitter Creek Valley,
which has been inundated by the
melting snow. Two bridges are re
ported gone, and the track is washed
out at several places. It is impossible
to tell when the trains will run over
this section of the road, but the rail
road company are making every
effort to repair the track antl bridges.
Sall Lake City, April 17th.—A
lot of immigrant passengers walked
about eight miles ami got into Green
River station last evening. The rail
road company will start a train west
from Green River with these immi
grants this morning. The water in
Butte Creek is still rising, and is con
siderably higher to-day than yester
day. There are three bridges gone
and lartre portions of track washed
out iv different places. From all we
can hear to-day it would not appear
tfieYtKi'rfrtiFil can pass over
will depend upon the weather. If the
weather continues warm and the snow
melts, the difficulty at this place will
be increased, besides endangering the
road at many other points.
The wires are down East of Green
River this morning. On account of
the flood and want of means of con
veyance, it is difficut to get at the
breaks which are at the "wash-outs."
A good force of repair men are out,
and we hope to be working again be
fore night.
Five Hundred Dollars Reward.
Marysville, April 16.—The driver
of the Downieville stage, which was
robbed on the 14th instant, on his re
turn trip yesterday stopped to exam
ine the ground at tbe scene of the
robbery and discovered the treasure
box, lying within thirty feet of the
road. The letters, papers and way
bills were found uninjured, and were
brought down on to-day's stage. The
robber had broken the box open with
an old hatchet and taken the treasure
and a gold watch. SheriffToorey and
Detective McCoy have been on the
grounds and have .discovered a clew
which they believe will lead to the
discovery of the robbers. The box
and hatchet are now on exhibition at
the express office. $500 reward for the
capture of the robber and one-fourth
the treasure recovered are offered by
Wells, Fargo & Co.
Stage Robber Caught.
Marysville, April 18th.—Oscar N.
Smith was arrested here yesterday,
charged with the robbery of the Dow
nieville stage on the 4th inst., at Ore
gon Hill. Smith is an old jail-bird,
having «prved two terms in the State
Prism: fur If iu(J larceny. The evidence
is sir. mi a again t him, and the officers
have little doubt but that they have
the right man.
Raymond & Ely.
Pioche, April 17th.—The pumping

mine was put in operation yesterday.
It was only run 24 hours, but in that
time it drained the shaft.
Floods Break In the Railroad.
San Fbancisco, April 19th.—The
floods on the overland route have in

The following dispatches were received
last night:
At 6:45 v. M. to-day, A. N. Towne,
the General Superintendent of the
Central Pacific Railroad at San Fran
cisco, cannot give any definite opinion
as to when travel will be resumed.
The flood has not yet spent Its fury,
and the difticulty is very serious. The
company will allow* no passengers to
come East until further advised
[Signed] S, H, Clark.
Omaha, April 18th—7:15 p, m.—To
A. N. Towne, General Superintendent
Central Pacific Railroad, San Francis
co: We hope now to get passengers
through by Tuesday, by making one
short transfer. We will advise you
further to-morrow. One great trouble
has been that the wired were down, so
we could get no idea of the difficulty.
[Sinned] S. H. Clark.
Fame.
There are many who are anxious for
fame; who are longing for a good of
fice, which they will probably fill
badly; who think life wonderfully
well spent if they can amass a sum <Jf
money which they will not know what
to do with when they have got It. I
venture to put before them a new am
bition—that of becoming pleasant to
their tellow-creatures. It is a path in
which they will not be jostled by a
