One of the finest improvements in
the city wil! be the re-bullding of the
Lafayette Hotel. The whole of the
back of the house is already being
torn down, and the front will shortly
be built up. The stores will be just
half as large as they are now, and, as
the Important has a very large stock
on hand, they will not have half room
enough for their goods and in order to
prevent them from being damaged by
dirt and dust, they have decided to
sell all their Spring goods at less than
cost,and others, such as cottons, table
linen, etc., at exact cost. We advise
all to call at the Important and con

get again, and in order to prevent a

SATURDAY MAY 8, 1875.
Alexander Stephens says the
next President will be a newspaper
man. Grant does not concur. He
does not believe the pen Is mightier
than the sword.
The Oaklaud News is anxious to
know what the Republican State plat
form will embrace. It ought to be
able to guess. It will embrace Geo.
C. Gobham, Marcus D. Borires and
an incendiary history of the rebellion.
A Sau Francisco exchange says Sac
ramento is full of petty thieves. This
may not be applicable to San Francis
co. Since the Rosener investigation
"petty"* does not quite express the
quality of the thieves in that city.
Senator Booth has left Washing
ton for home antl his arrival in San
Francisco is expected in a few days.
The completion of the Independent
programme has been postponed until
the chief has hud time to scan the
field. When his prophetic eye has
scanned the expanse from San Diego
to Siskiyou, General Swift will be
gin to move his squadrons and soon af
ter we shall be told the di Here nee be
tween twecdle-dum and tweedle-de.
A Suggestion.
Our people are casting about in
search of a candidate for Congress who
will fully and faithfully represent
Southern California at the Nation's
capitol. Up to this time Bo Demo
cratic candidate has been named who
resides in the southern part of the
State, and we now assume the respon
sibility of suggesting one—Col. B. D.
Wilson of Wilmington. We are not
personally acquainted with Colonel
Wilson, and we mention his name in
connection with the candidacy for
Congress without his knowledge and
without knowiug that he would accept
the position if tendered him. We how
ever know him well by reputation
know his history aud know something
ofthe service he has rendered South
ern California. We want a represen
tative In Congress who is familliar
with the wants and resources of this
part of the State—a man who will la
bor to supply those wants and secure
the passage of such laws as will aid
the development of those resources; a
Representative in fact who is of the
people. Such a man we beUove Col
onel Wilson to be. He has resided
in this county nearly thirty-five years
and this long period of his life has
been devoted to the best interests of
Southern California. Twice he has
represented Los Angeles county in the
State Senate, and to-day no man in
California enjoys more fully the confi
dence and respect of all who know
him. We want men of good sound
practical sense in Congress, and Col.
Wilson is one of those men.
One Chance Left.
The Sacramento Record- Union is
aud always has been dissatisfied with
the government of the United States,
its forms and principles. Of late it has
grumbled at the result of elections
and expresses the belief that they have
been brought about by the votes of
foreign born citizens. To check and
destroy the effect of this clas9 of votes
it hints at the necessity for the forma
tion of another Know Nothing party.
We regret this manifestation ofdiscou
tent on the part of the Record editor.
We regret it all the more because he
is an unnaturalized foreigner. We
liketomakeit pleasant for the sub
jects of Queen Victoria or of any oth
er Queen or King when they visit us
and we like to have them praise and
admire our Republic and the way we
conduct it. We have no objection to
the coming here of Mr. Parson or any
other British subject. We do not
care if he or they persistently refuse to
become citizens of this country, nor
do we seriously object to their taking
a hand in our political affairs and
filling year in and year out the col
umns of a newspaper with abuse of
the government from its foundation
rock to its cap stone. This is a free
country and up to the commencement
of the "late unpleasantness" every
man—foreign born or native bred
had an inalienable right to swear at
every officer of the realm from town
beadle to President. But there is one
privilege which has never been denied
natives of England or any other for
eign country who come here,and, while
refusing to become citizens, growl at
everything they see, and that is the
privilege to leave any moment after
they obtain money enough to pay
their passage out of the country.
Wealth Evading Taxation.
The investigation into the dark
and tortuous ways of Assessor
Rosknkk of San Francisco, throws ad
ditional light on a matter about which
a great deal of discussion has already
taken place. We mean the evasion of
taxation by the rich. An examina
tion of the assessment list of a great
many counties and cities of our State
show that the bulk of the revenue is
raised from the taxes paid by tbe poor
man and the mau of moderate means,
and a closer examination of the list
will show that while the mau of a few
thousand dollars is assessed up to the
full value of bis property, the man of
many thousands is assessed at half or
less than half his actual value in dol
lars and cento. In no place in the
State is this system of evasion carried
to a greater extent than in San Fran
cisco. There are millions and mil
ions of taxable property in
that city that is never taxed. The
revenue which ought to be collected
from these millions is made up from
the property of the poorer and more
houest class, whose burden is thereby
made heavier. For some years past it
has been the complaint of the banks of
Sacramento aud other interior towns,
that in proportion they paid tuxes
largely in excess of those paid by the
banks of San Francisco. The RosSK
kk investigation not only establishes
the fact that those complaints were
made on good grounds, but it shows
the modus operandi by which the
metropolitan banks have avoided
paying tuxes on their vast Wealth. It
was in evidence that the banks were
assessed at tiguresapproximating their
correct valuation; but on application
to the Assessor, and the payment to
him of a large sum—slo,ooo or $20,001)
—"to defray his election expenses,"
the assessment is reduced hundreds of
thousands, perhaps millions of dollars,
and all is serene with the bunks
and the Assessor. Here are
thousands of dollars lost to tbe
revenue on one class of business. Is
there not like swindling operations iv
others? The inference is fair that if
Rose nek would accept a bribe from
the banks and in consideration of
those bribes reduce the taxation below
what it should be, he would for a like
consideration reduce the assessment on
the property of rich men and corpora
tions engaged in other lines of busi
ness. To what extent this system of
official fraud and peculation has been
carried it is difficult to eveu approxi
mate. This evasion of their propor
tion of taxation by the wealthy is rob
bery of the masses. Just so EBUOh
revenue must be raised, and when
one-half the wealth of the State es
capes assessment the burden of taxa
tion is doubled on the remaining half.
These are thoughts for the considera
tion of the people. If the rich are per
mitted to bribe the officers to rob the
poor we shall soon learn that there is
too much truth iv the sentence that
this is a country in which the ricli
grow richer and the poor poorer.
Political Bartering.
Editos Herald: The pertinent
remarks in your article in this morn
ing's issue, under the above caption,
has the ring of true metal in it. It is
a subject of vital importance to the
people, and all the people, at this time.
It is a well known fact that the caucus
hates no men so much as they hate
good and true men. They have no use
for men of freedom of thought, purity
oi character and inflexible purpose. It
is place men they are hunting—men
of pliable nature aud yielding disposi
tion By the organism ot our Govern
ment all power is placed in the hands
of the people, but the caucus has in
siduously seized this power and are
appropriating it to their own partizun
and selfish ends. The question is, can
we successfully combat them? Have
we not advanced to a stage in our
reckless career, from which it is im
possible for us to return? We do not
doubt the purity and bravery of the
American people. They are ready to
fight Kings and Princes and all ene
mies of a Republic. But the question
now is, how are they going to fight?
No Kings here exist, but we have a
more formidable enemy than any
earthly potentate in our very midst, iv
the form of the great corporate organ
ization that insiduously attempts to
wrest the power from the hands of the
people by the use of placemen in the
Government. If the combat was a
simple contest between them and the
people, it would soon end in a grand
triumph on the side of the people. But
such is not the case, and we blush
to confess the sad truth, which
our observation has taught us.
The struggle iv a great measure has
been between place men and those who
wish to displace them merely to get
their places—it is a struggle between
office holders and olliee seekers, aud
the question has been, which do the
people prefer? We confess that both
partiess possess some good men, but
not enough to leaven the lump. See
ing this, it is not astonishing that so
many good men refrain voting, or per
mitting their names to be used in con
nection with either party. The num
ber of this class have rapidly increased
from day to day. But this far they
have done nothing but chide the two
great parties. Our greatest hope for
the country is that this independent
element may put their services to a
better use. If properly organized they
are strong enougn to give the victory
to either side. In other words they
hold the balance of power, and can de
mand from either party, a just and
economical administration of the gov
ernment. In order to secure the co
operation of the Independents, both
tne old parties would of necessity put
their best men forward. This would
be a terrible blow upon place hunters.
We hear considerable said in regard
to running au independent ticket. Such
a ticket might secure a few offices in
the State, but our past experience con
vinces us that without a majority in
the Legislature. The Independents
can accomplish nothing. That ma
jority they cannot attain.

matter of the expose of the Rosener
administration of the Assessor's office,
Edward Martin, of the Hibernia Bank,
testified [trot ne had business at tne
Assessor's office in 1873, and was asked
by Rosener if lie was not going to see
him. Martin caught his meaning,
and Mid he supposed he would have
to, and gave a card to Rosener with
his initials on it, stating he would
honor it for $500. The card was pre
sented at the Hibernia Bank some
time after by a strange man, and a
check for the money payable to the
bearer. Martin said there was no
agreement as to what he gave the
money for. It was not understood
that it was election expenses. When
directly asketl what he gave the money
for, be said: " I paid the $500 just as
you give up your purse to a highway
man." He admitted, however, that
he gave the money to be in Rosener's
good graces.

Marys villi-:. May 6.—Judge Bliss

years of age and was reared in this
place. He entertained a particular
spite against Marshal Casad, who ar
rested him, and under no considera
tion would he tell where the treasure
was buried until assured that no part
of it should go to Casad. This was
arranged by the consent of Casad, who
voluntarily surrendered his claim to a
share of the treasure iv orderto secure
tbe punishment of Smith. The mat
ter was arranged by giving him $1,300
—one-fourth of the treasure recovered,
which is part of the reward offered by

powder cartridge in his mouth and

found. No cause is assigned for the
deed. The mine at the present time is
paying well.
