B p3 j m , CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1875 California. A large nnd appreciative audience assem bled In the Unitarian Church la.-d evening, notwithstanding the bad weather, in hear Mr. ('lias. V. Hull of I.os Angeles give his lec ture on California, Illustrated by :i selection from ON llluininated photographic views, which were reflected on a while space twenty feet In diameter. The lecture proved tsUli in teresting snd Instructive, for Mr. Ilsll was listened to with rapt attention, save wnen some particularly Interesting point drew forth a round of applause. He gave most of the evening to Southern California; spoke > i nourishing settlements in that region, of relics ofthe old Spanish rule, variety of fruit trees, rapid growth and cany bearing, oil aud medicinal springs, timber, water and luxurious pasture; cattle and sheep business, the small grains and immense earn yield, etc., etc. The views were as beautiful as they were complete and were very much enjoyed. The pictures he drew of the famous life In California were certainly filled with fascina tion, and If he made no converts for the cause ofthe Grangers, whoas immigrant agent he is, he certuiiiiy left upon the minds of his hearers a ver<? pleasant Impression of the ad vantages and facilities of the Golden State.— Philu. man Mr. Hall is compelled to send home for means occasionally to sustain him in this enterprise. Our citizens who are anxious to have our county more extensively advertised would do well to aid Mr. Hall in this work. It is the very best mode of advertising, and Mr. Hall really deserves encour agement. Royalty in America. The public opinion ofthe world does not find fault with Victoria for demaealing from the British Parliament gifts of millions for the benefit of her children, as pay for doing nothing, while she has an immense personal fortune,out of which she couliJ*JJjkidnw them; und If a monarchy can psy so well for idle ness, why should not a republic give a brief employment and small salaries for hard and honest work, to the relatives of her President? of course. If it were apparent that they were incompetent or dishonest,the question would be entirely different. — Alta (iUiforiikt. Then "the question is entirely dif ferent." Nothing is more apparent.- Tiie Alta is taking time by the fore lock, antl preparing tlte American peo ple for what may come to pass. This little paragraph is only a feeler, but it is very significant. "Look at the monarchies of the oltl world. See how wealthy they are, ami behold how the poor subjects lavish millions upon them and their children, and the public opinion of the world does not find fault with it." The Ameri can people aro> not quite ready yet to have the extravagance and arbitrary dictation of the crowned heads of Europe held up to them as an example to be followed by the President of the United States. We do not know how soon we may be forced to lift the hat - t jie knee when royalty is men tionedhiour.iie»...., e> af ureßeiit over one-naif the American have no better sense than to use cuss words when they read such language as they find in the Alta. But if the Alta and her co-laborers will continue to give us lessions, we may become indoc trinated in time. It is wonderful how fast a people will change. Who knows how soon the American people may fol low the example of ancient Israel. They once had their President and a Gov ernor for each State, or tribe, and all their subordinate officers, very much like the machinery of our own govern ment, and for a great while they were very prosperous happy. They made o»<»iiey and became rich and took pleasure trips, antl in their tours they became acquainted witli the kingdoms around them. The roya! splendor of those gorgeous old thrones, the shining retinue surrounding the King, the brilliant display of tiie no bility, the grand elegance of the King's palace, aud above all this there was royal blood. It took their eye; they were captivated. It was too much for these Republicans; they be came restless; they would draw the comparison between their insignificant President and the royal King of the Hitites: " Why, the great King of the Hitites does not do anything, yet when he calls upon his subjects for millions as a gift for liiachildren, they give it without a word. The King is wealthy antl puts all his relatives iv high places, and the people all say amen." Titan they would look upon their poor old President, only worth a few hundred thousand .shekels of gold; and his relations—they are no better than other people; aud our President has so little power, too; if he attempts to make one of his relatives a Gov ernor over the tribe of Dan, all the other tribes make a fuss about it. A general feeling of dissatisfaction ob tained throughout the nation, und they talked it openly. At first the rich only wanted a King; the poor objected. Eventually they brought the question to a vote, and the Royalists won the election by a two-third majority or more. We oniy have Samuel's account of it, and he was in the minority and so badly beuteu that he did not have much to aay ou the subject. He summed it up in a few words and said: "All the people cried out and said, 'Give us a king.'" Samuel was a staunch old Bourbon Democrat. Even after the election was over and the votes ail counted, he made a telling speech against it, but all to no etfe ct. They got their King, and the snobs and shoddyites splurged. We know not whether the Alta editor has been on a tour to Europe or not; he has certainly squinted at royalty in some quarter. Perhaps King Kalakaua's visit has turned his head. The San Bernardino Guardian says: "Chavez and his gang are now oper ating ou the roud between Panamint and Cerro Oordo. His movements are mighty "onsartin." We advise team sters on the Panamint road to keep a bright lookout for him; and would •uggest that there is no need of their tB -Mng their hoarded cash along with then, f or Btt f e ty. A Plea for Woman. Editor Herald: r had thought that some sister would have replied ere this to your little artichj. upon female editors. It ought to be answered, and rather than let it go by default I am tempted to try myself. But my pen is not at all equal to the tusk; I can't begin to do justice to the subject. You ought te> have an Anna Dickinson, or Grace Greenwood, or Gall Hamilton hold of you for a few moments, Mr. Iviitor. lam inclined to think that when you came from their hands you would have received a revelation; in short, would be a converted man. Now it seems to me that if there Is any one field more than another that is open to woman and invites her to enter and reap, it is that of journalism. Such women, of course, as have the taste ai.d capacity for something higher than dish-washing and shirt buttons. Surely there are occupations enough that are practically closed against Wfjman. Whether from lack of physical strength, impropriety of associations, or what not, she is de barred from gaining a livelihood in many ways that are open to man. And it is n well known aud shameful fact that, most employments in which she is graciously allowed to compete with her stronger brother and "natu ral protector," she is paid from twenty to fifty per cent less than he for pre cisely the same service. This is true from the hired girl and sewing woman to the teacher and government clerk. In the offices at Washington the most efficient female employe receives $900 per annum, while the largest, most good-for-nothing man that carries messages gets $1,200. But examples are unnecessary—everybody knows it. is there any reason—mental, morn! or physical—why a woman should not edit a newspaper and do it well? Surely she has all the essential quali fications in this triple direction. Are brains beetled? She has them, and oftentimes to spare to her weak breth ren. Is business tact called lor in a high degree? Only a little training is requisite to make her the shrewdest of managers. Is combat!venem in de mand? She bus the bump handsomely developed. Is perseverance neces sary? She beats man all to pieces for sticking to her point. Is firmness de sirable? Gibraltar is not more*" set in its ways" than a woman whose mind is made up. Let me quote: " When a woman will, she will," etc. So you think a woman might edit a child's paper or journal of fashion, but would have her pen to steer clear of politics. And why, pray? Surely, not because the political puddle has no need of purification, liather the contrary, perhaps. It is too filthy for woman's purity to be soiled with. That is the old argument against female suffrage. Because, forsooth, a woman might have to march to the polls by the side of a bad man, she must n«»t deposit her ballot at all. Who thinks of the thousands of pure and noble women chained for life to drunk ards, or worse, whose votes, with their sisters', might bring in time that re ceTveVn;m t tll' : , V n? ai ' ~ever *f» to re- But (Ins is not the question. We are no! sure that womau 'suffrage would hi just the thing. But if they cant-vote they can write; and in the name of justice let them write, and upon any and all subjects they please. Let them teach their husbands and brothers how to vote. The corruption ef the last decade is ample proof that some such teaching is sadly needed. Ludus. Overland Travel Suspended. Ooden, April 17th.—It holds warm along- the Un4«>n Pacific road, and the snow continues melting, and unless the weather changes it will be several days before the water will begin to fall. Until it does, nothing can be done toward repairing the track in the bail places. The Union Pacific agent here has instructions to engage twen ty-five teams and send them forward to-day for the purpose of transferring passengers at the breaks. No trains have left Ogden yet, and none will go East until arrangements for transfer ring are perfected. Ooden, April 17th.—Six coaches of emigrants were transferred yesterday between Pock Springs and Bear river, and are coming Westward as fast as the breaks allow. Up to this time they have passed over as much of the road In twenty-four lfours as would have taken only four hours if it had been in good condition. A train of first-class passengers and a large num ber of emigrants reached Green river to-day from Rock Springs fn wagons, whicli returned with as many East bound passengers as chose to go. A ti*in will be started East from Rock Springs in the morning. A force of laborers arrived at Rock Springs from the East to-day. A company is work ing energetically at the breaks, and is feeding and doing everything for the comfort of the passengers that is possible under the circumstances. Salt Lake, April 17th.—A lot of emigrant passengers walked about eight miles and got into Green River Station last evening. The railroad company will start a train West from Green river with these emigrantsthis morning. The water in Butte creek is still rising and Is considerably higher to-day than yesterday. There are three bridges gone and large por tions of track washed out in different places. From all we can hear to-day it would not appear probable that any train can passoverthe road for a week yet, and even that will depend upon the weather, if the weather continues warm and the snow melts, the diffi culty at this place will be Increased, besides endangering the road at mauy other points. The wires are down East of Green river this morning. On account of the flood and the want of means of conveyance, it is difficult to get at the breaks, which are at the "wash-outs." Salt Lake News. Salt Lake City, April 17th.— The Mormon papers are virulent against correspondents in this city, for send ing what they call untruthful and sen satioual reports over the wires. The object is clearly understood here. The removal of Governor Woods and 'other officials is accounted a great tri umph by the church orators aud edi tors, and this point gained they now seek to obtain control of the wires. Chief Justice Lowe to-day ordered that Brighiwn Young appear In the Third District Court on Saturday next to show cause why he should not be compelled, by attachment, to com ply with an order of the Court to pay Anna Eliza Young $9,500 alimony, pendente lite, heretofore granted by Justice McKean. A terrible snow-slide occurred at the Reed & Benson mine, Big Cottonwood, yesterday, burying three men ana seriously injuring two. From the East. New York, April 17th.-Th* rail road war shows no sign* of abating, and railroad raeu predict a bad Sum mer for the roads. Few, if any, are making their running expenses and the prospects are that third-class freight will be carried this Summer at the lowest rates ever known —fifteen cents by rail and lake and from twenty to twenty-five cents by rail to Chi cago. New YIN April 17th.—The earn ings of the Vnion Pacific Railroad for the first fifteen days of April were $~>ls,r,:>:>; an increase of about sixty per cent, over the same j>eriod of last year. Election. Providknce, April 17th.—The sec ond trial ID the city to-day to elect a Senator and nine Representatives in General Assembly resulted in a choice of the regular Republican ticket, sup ported by the liquor interest, by 350 majority. This probably secures the election of Henry Lippitt, Governor, and the repeal of the Prohibitionary and State Constabulary laws. Several arrests were made for bribery and ille gal voting. Cardinals Hot. New York, April 17th.—Great pre parations are making for conferring the scarlet bavretta on Cardiual Mc- Closkey. The sanctuary of the Cathe dral is being enlarged to accommodate a large number of archbishops and bishops who are expected to be pres ent. Indian War. Chicago, April 17th.—Kansas City advices state that 800 Cheyenne war riors crossed the track of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad on Thursday night, fifteen miles East of Akin. They were going North, pass ing through the State of Kansas, and a company of troops was sent from Fort Dodge in pursuit. The trail was followed about twenty miles, when It became evident that the Indians had separated and scattered over the prai ries. They are undoubtedly on the war path, and bloody work may be expected. Front and Snow. Chicago, April 17th.—The extraor dinary coltl snap continues here and reports from all portions of the West and Southeast show it to be general. The fruit crop has doubtless suffered very Heriously, and in many localities it is reported entirely killed. The thermometer here last night marked zero, and to-day snow has been flying all duy. Toronto, April 16th.—Kingstown and Port Colbome harbors are again blocked with ice. Five i nches of snow have.fallen at Seaforth siuce last night and it is still snowing and freez ing. Navigation on the Georgian bay is now open. The Louisiana Legislature. Chicago, April 17th.—A New Or leans dispatch says the majority for Estelle, the Speaker of there-organ ized House of Representatives was ■ -nynlhan ha Lm.l ai»*s/>l^»a tcui After his defeat, Wiltz made a violent and intemperate speech, attacking General Sheridan, Governor Kellogg, and Marshal Packard, attributing his defeat to their machinations. From the South. Memphis, April 17th.—A heavy frost last nitrht killed the vegetables and seriously damaged, if not killed, the fruit. Nashville, April 17th.—A heavy West and Northwest wind has pre vailed here for the last thirty-five hours, extending as far South as Montgomery, Alabama. This morn ing the ice was an eighth of an inch thick at Corinth, Miss. All exposed vegetation was frozen here this morn ing. It is believed that all the fruit, cotton and wheat in this and adjoin ing States are seriously injured, if not killed. Prussia's Note to Belgium. Brussels, April 16th.—In the Chamber of Deputies last evening the Minister of Foreign Affairs stated that the Government yesterday received Germany's reply to its last note. The reply cites no fresh facts. It diacants on the principles of international law involved in the discussion, and ex presses a hope that Belgium will seize the opportunity to dissipate the im pression that Germany intended to attack the liberty of the press in Bel gium. The Minister, after informing the House of the contents of the note, said: "Courteous verbal explanations have been exchanged with the Ger man Minister," and in conclusion as sured the Chamber that the Belgian Government sincerely desired to strengthen good relations with Ger many. Salt cated in a Balloon Paris, April loth. —A party of three persons asceiid.it in the balloon Zenith to-day, for the purpose of mak ing scientific observations. The bal loon Attained the extraordinary height of 8,000 meters (over 26,000 feet). Two of the teronauts were suffocated to death, aud when the balloon reached the ground a third was almost insen sible, and has since been so ill that his recovery is doubtful. Trouble at Headquarters. London, April 17th.—In the House of Commons last night, there was an acrimonious debate on the question of summoning to the bar the printers of the Times and News for a breach of privilege, for publishing documents in the hands ot Select Committees on Foreign Loans. Disraeli move a res olution that a Select Committee be in structed to investigate the affair and report how the Press obtained the doc uments. This resolution was carried, and the order summoning the printers revoked. Officers of the Grand Cammandory.

The Conservatives con tend that all Conservatives returned by the board were to be seated under the award, while the Republicans con tend that these four were not to be dis turbed. Marshal Packard says that if the Conservatives did not recede, the Senate will adjourn sine die. The at tempted move would give the Con servatives a majority ou joint ballot. The crisis is imminent.
