One of the finest improvements in
the city will be the re-building 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
balf 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
great rush, we advise all to call early

SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1875.
Vice-President Wilson is talking
peace and good-will among the people
of the South.
Some of our exchanges are trying to
find out what becomes of all the gold.
To explain where it does not go is a
more appropriate subject for editorial
Senator Sargent has essayed the
role so unsuccessfully played by
Schuyler Colfax. Schuyler al
ways wanted, thoigh he always de
nied that he wanted any office within
the gift of the people, from State Sen
ator to President of the United States.
So of tbe Quaker Hill Statesman. He
was a persistent office seeker at the
hands of the Republican party of this
State, until he was elected to the
United States Senate, and now, when
bis term is little more than half out,
he begins writing letters in which be
assures bis admiring constituents tbat
he is not a candidate for re-election.
Like Schuyler, be will probably be
taken at his word.
The latest information from San
Francisco is that the primary election
held in that city on Wednesday result
ed in the selection of delegates favoring
the nomination of T. G. Ryland of
Santa Clara county for Governor. This
result, if such is the result, is unex
pected. Ryland is not more popular
nor is he an abler man than many of
the other aspirants, and not being a
resident of San Francisco bis carrying
the delegation can only be accounted
for on the ground that be ia tbe choice
•f the heavy corporation's combina
tion, which is seeking a candidate for
Governor not inimical to their inter
Talking About It.
Nearly every journal in the State
outside of San Francisco is discussing
the irrigation proposition. All agree
that some means should be devised by
which the millions of gallons of water
now running to waste may be used in
rendering productive tbe vast area
which is now yielding nothing, or
next to nothing. But various plans
are suggested. Some favor a State
system and others hold that only the
localities benefited should be taxed to
defray tbe expense of carrying out tbe
irrigation system. The proposition is
one of vast proportions and should be
well considered before practical opera
tions are commenced, and these dis
cussions will lead to an exchange of
opinions and call out suggestions
which will help us toward the desired
end. All admit that a careful utiliza
tion of the water will increase the
value of our annual products millions
of dollars. The only question is how
it can best be done. When our farm
ers learn to plow deep and sow early
they will have taken a step which will
double tbe products of tbe State, and
when to this we have added an irriga
tion system that will turn the waters
from their natural cbanuels over the
broad grain fields we shall hear less of
drouths and more of average crops.
When this is done we shall record no
more failures among the farmers, and
California's wheat export will aston
ish the outside world.
That City by the Sea.
In another column will be found a
communication, written on a text fur
nished by the San Francisco Post. We
give place to the article, not because
we entertain the fears expressed by
the writer, but in order that our read
ers may learn the means resorted to
by a San Francisco newspaper, and
one, too, which it is known could not
ex ist but for Senator Jones's money,
to depreciate Los Angeles real estate
aud otherwise injure business in this
locality. For one, we do not accept
the Post's insinuation that it is the
purpose of Senator Jones to move Los
Angeles to Santa Monica, or build a
city at that point which shall destroy
us, as emanating from the Senator,
nor do we believe that he authorized
the publication of such a statement.
That the Post intended it to injure
this city, we have no doubt. Being
partly owned by Senator Jones, the
Post probably assumes to speak for
him; and unless he positively denies
that it expresses his purpose in the
paragraph quoted at the head of the
communication, many people will ac
cept its assertion as official. We re
peat tbat we do not believe it makes
this statement on information given
by the Senator himself. But it is welt
for our people to know what is said
about them, and to know who it is
that is sending broadcast reports in
tended to affect their prosperity. We
are aware that a town will be laid off
at Santa Monica, but we do not appre
hend that it will seriously affect Los
Angeles. A town was laid off at Wil
mington same years ago, but the place
is not regarded as a dangerous rival of
this city. Wilmington is as fine a
location, and oilers as many induce
ments for city building as Santa
Monica. Senator Jones and others
associated with him own some thirty
thousand acres of land at Santa Moni
ca, a portion of which it Is understood
will be laid off in town lots and the
remainder divided up into small farms;
but that we shall ever have a town at
that place of five thousand, or one half
that number of inhabitants, no one
familiar with the locality will fpr a
moment believe. It is true that tbe
Southern coast is remarkably Pacific;
but city building on the open sea
D oard, although frequently under
taken, has seldom proved successful.
However, as the Post appears to speak
authoritatively, the facts set forth in
the communication are worth reading
and considering by tbe people of Los
THE RAILROAD QUESTION.
The Han Francisco I'ost, taking the now
hotel aud wharf for a basis, has written Santa
Monica into a city of one hundred thousand
Inhabitants, with Los Angeles as a suburb.
Of course, people hereabouts will appreciate
The above is from the Mirror of the
Sth instant; and although we may
look upon it as a huge joke, we will
And that there is a method in its mad
ness. The Post is the organ of Senator
Jones, and speaks ex cathedra. The
eight or niue leagues of pasture land
about Santa Monica will soon be map
ped off in town lots, and the projectors
are in hopes of transferring the nascent
prosperity of Los Angeles to this point.
The argument used at the time that
the Senator was induced to purchase
into this property, that it was prepos
terous that Los Angeles could be a
commercial city—her position did not
justify it—and the great city, the em
porium of this valley and its vast tri
butary interior, must be on the sea, Is
still the governing idea of those in in
terest. Tbat Los Angeles could become
a great commercial city, would be a
contradiction to all the traditions of
English-talking people, it might do
for the Latin races and their congen
era the Arabs, but to think that an
Anglo-Saxon race, the offspring of the
Vikings, would build up a city in the
interior, was sheer nonsense.
The individuals who obtained the
charter for the Los Angeles and Inde
pendence rood were friends of Los An
geles and Independence, and had no
real estate scheme in view. They did
not contemplate hostile movements
upon the lines of tbe Southern Pacific,
whom they had invited here to make
Los Angeles a railroad centre, and
which they have and are accomplish
ing at vast outlay of money, and dis-
Ftlay such energy and prodigality of
ndividual means as has not been made
manifest in the history of railroad
building. If our citizens furnish the
means to build up a rival city at Santa
Monica, they should demand to be let
In on the bed-rock in the land and lot
speculation, and unload a little of
their Los Angeles property; for as sure
as the sun rises and sets, the interest
of Los Angeles is in jeopardy. The
Southern Pacific has made us now
what we are, why not treat it with
kindness and respect? Let us contem
plate a little, and not run wildly mad
at fancied benefits that T. and
J. Gould are going todo for
operations so far nave been as marked
with selfishness and disregard to pub
lic interest as the members of the
Southern Pacific Company. The
Southern Pacific Company is composed
of individual members, who are emi
nently Californianin heart, sympathy
and interest. They all came to this
State as boys, grew up with the State,
and use their means to develop our
interests. It will be a sad day for us
when our railroad interest passes into
Wall street or the hands of stock job
bers. Let us be wise, prudent and on
the lookout. Let us not be rash. We
are doing splendidly. When the Shoo
Fly and Panamint road does us the
benefit that the Southern Pacific has
already accomplished, then let us be
ready to give it its meed of praise.
We invited the Southern Pacific to
come here and give us connection by
rail with Francisco and push for our
interior and Arizona trade. They are
doing it. What did we give them?
Our interest in the Los Angeles and
San Pedro Railroad, of which we bad
already been robbed. In addition we
gave them some $270,000 or $300,000
subsidy. What has the Southern Pa
cific given us in exchange? Tbe en
hanced value of real estate eloquently
tells, and a legitimate assessment
would in two years pay off the debt.
Now wby should we encourage paral
lel roads and hostile opposition? Is it
honest? Is it reasonable? Is it right?
Fair-minded men will draw their owu
conclus ons. Vebbum, Sap.
