Number one of the fourteenth vol
ume of the San Francisco Daily Stock
Report comes to us with the name of
William M. Bunker as one of the
♦roprfetors. Bunker is one of the
long-time attaches of the Bul!etin,*nd
is a young man of industry and ener
gy, who believes that what is worth
doing at all is worth doing well. Un
der his management the Report will
soon become a reliable and influential
journal. The number before us is a
bright and Intelligent issue.
From our San Francisco exchanges
we gather that the primaries held in
that city on Wednesday did not show
tho predominant strength of any one
candidate for Governor. The conclu
sion is t hat among the delegates are
friends of all the candidates, but ma
jorities for none. The striking feature
of the election is the unusually large
vote polled and the great interest
manifested. This is a straw which
indicates how San Francisco will vote
at the election. The Examiner ac
cepts the primary vote as evidence
that the city will go largely Demo
cratic in September. The Indepen
dent and Republican papers are silent
on this point,and their silence implies
tbat they are both astonished and dis
satisfied at the number of Democrats
developed by the Primary. If the
Democrats nominate good men there
is no doubt but that San Francisco will
give them a majority of over five
thousand.
Law and Penalty.
The moral bar to the commission of
crime is nothing like so strong in some
natures as the fear of the punishment
inflicted by the law. The gnawings of
conscience are less dreaded than the
verdict of a jury. A sense of justice
will sometimes stay a hand, but the
penalty designated by the code is the
more powerful argument against strik
ing tbe blow. Great criminal lawyers
give these opinions as the result of a
lifetime study. Where there is no
punishment save the consciousness of
wrong-doing, crime and lawlessness
are more common and human life less
valuable than where the laws are
rigid and conviction and punishment
tread close on the heels of the ofleuce.
These aphorisms are intended as in
troductory to a few remarks on the
apparent laxity of the law in the con
viction of evil-doers and the lightness
of the penalty imposed on them of late
years in California. Under the quib
bles of the law many offenders escape
the punishment they justly merit, and
through a maudlin sentimentality un
worthy of an intelligent community
light penalties are imposed. In San
Francisco tbey say political influences
enable offenders to escape, and there
they do not hesitate to charge that
just before election, in the courts of
judges desiring to retain their seats,
fines and penalties grow light in pro
portion to the number of votes con
trolled by the prisoner at the bar. We
trust there is no ground for these
charges in San Francisco or elsewhere.
The law must be enforced and crime
punished. The safety of the lives and
property of all depend on this. We
cannot maintain the peace by permit
ting law-breakers to escape with a
nominal fine. Let justice be dealt out
with an impartial hand.
Is it a Political Move?
It in intimated by a number of lead
ing journals in the East tbat the
Texas border raids, graphic accounts
of which we are receiving from day to
day, are tbe commencement of a
movement intended to facilitate the
chances for Grant's re-election. It
is tbe purpose of the administration,
so say the seers, to provoke a war
with Mexico, and in the excitement
consequent on the war, overcome the
objection to the third term and run
his Majesty in as a military necessity.
It seems hardly possible that the great
Republican party will endorse a
scheme so disreputable, and certainly
the people of the United States will
not be deceived into the continued
support of a man whom they have al
ready virtually repudiated, on a pre
text so flimsy and unreal as this. It
is difficult to think that the managers
of a party will force a war on their
own people and cairy war, with all its
attendant horrors into a weak and de
fenceless nation for the sole purpose of
maintaining itself in power. If the
Mexicans along our border violate the
law and commit outrages on the prop
erty and persons of United States citi
zens, they should be punished and the
Mexican Government notified of the
transgression. If this is done, the
trouble will cease. Mexico does not
desire war with tbe United States.
She is conscious of the inequality of
tbe match and nothing short of down
right insult or actual invasion will
induce her to enter the arena. We
have no doubt she will do all in her
power to prevent marauding on our
borders and promptly punish tbe
offend©**. She will not go to war
with us if she can help it, aud our
people will not countenance a scheme
for forcing a war on a neighboring
nation when that scheme has for its
sole purpose the maintenance in
power of a political party.
Los Angeles County.
Up country aspirants for oflice are
evincing considerable concern about
how Los Augeles county will cant her
vote at the approaching election. We
dislike to see people on the anxious
seat, and will proceed to gratify their
curiosity ah far as possible. Since the
time which runneth not in the mem
ory of man until the Legislative elec
tion two years ago, Los Angeles
county has rolled up her regular
Democratic majority. The break was
occasioned by local issues and the
general demoralization of party which
prevailed at the time. The Indepen
dents nominated a ticket and the Re
publicans supported it. The contest
was between the Democrats on or.c
side and the combined forces of the
Independents and Republicans on the
other. The result was the election of
the Democratic ticket, with the ex
ception of Bush for Senator and
Hioby for Assemblyman — both of
whom were Independent nominees.
The antecedents of Bush were Demo
cratic and those of Hioby Republi
can. At this time the indications are
that the county will give a handsome
Democratic majority this Fall. The
Democrats are now united and the
course of the Administration has here
as elsewhere sent hundreds into the
ranks of the only party in which the
people have hopes of a reform of the
many abuses which now prevail. The
record of the Independent party in
this State is unsatisfactory, and from
tbat organization little seems to be
expected. These facts give strength
to the opiniou expressed by many of
•ur well informed citizens, that this
county is now Democratic by from 300
to 600 majority.
Here and Elsewhere.
It Is not pleasant to read In our ex
changes tbat the crops will be ligbt in
this or that locality, but the fact
seems to exist, and serves to illustrate
the falsity of the reports so often cir
culated that it is only in Southern
California, where nothing is raised or
only light crops harvested in seasons
of light rains. The truth is that the
yield of farm products in this valley
will equal those of any other portion
of the State iv all kinds of seasons.
The farmers of Los Angeles valley do
not complain this year. Their crops
will equal tbeir expectations. Our
farmers are learning the value of deep
plowing and early sowing. They who
have learned the lesson and profited
by it have no reason to complain. Ten
acres of properly cultivated and early
seeded land is worth forty acres that
are scratched over and sowed late.
There is another point to which we
wish to call the attention of those who
have so much that is bad and so little
that is good to say about Southern
California, which is that there is a
larger area, proportionally considered,
of first-class land which will produce
good crops one year after another, rain
or no rain, and that, too, without irri
gation in this valley tban can be
found in any other valley in the State.
This is a truth which will be at
tested by those who investigate for
themselves. This valley is not as
large as some others on the Pacific
Slope, and it contains some land
which will not produce good crops in
dry seasons without irrigation; but
there is more of the same quality of
land in other valleys. Of this one
thing all may be assured: when Los
Angeles farmers harvest nothing, the
grain sacks of the San Joaquin and
Sacramento valleys will remain empty
until another season.
Was it a Put Up Job?
The trial of the "Elaine" stealers,
just terminated in San Francisco, de
veloped nothing as to the object of the
robbers beyond a desire on their part
to make money by the theft. It was
hardly to be expected that the real
bottom of the transaction would be
reached in the trial, for the reason
tbat if tbe thing had any real bottom
the instruments used were not aware
of the purpose of those who induced
them to become the principals in a
transaction which did more to spread
the fame of the creator of "Elaine"
than could have been done by a life
time at tbe easel. Ever since the re
covery of the picture we have bad our
opinion as to the real purpose of the
theft. Of the four men who carried
out the robbery, one at least was in
earnest, and stole the painting with
the sole and only view of making
money by the theft—tbe reward that
would be offered for its delivery and
no questions asked. This one of the
party was the man who went in at the
window, ascended to the gallery and
cut the picture from its frame. Of the
three who watched outside there is the
faintest shadow of suspicion that tbey
were working for the reward paid by
those whose purpose it was to add to
Toby Rosenthal's fame. The easy,
careless manner in which the noted
detective worked up the case and cap
tured first the culprits and then the
picture is a curious feature in the
chain of events. If some, at least, of
the parties who stole "Elaine" were
not "put up" to it by those who
wished to create a furore over Toby's
"last and greatest" we have underes
timated the inventive genius of a
shrewd detective.

Jim Brown, Longfellow, Lady St. Clair, Nlm
rod and Fisherman. Jim Brown, tbe favor
ite, was considered the best pacer In the
State. A combination of scoundrels bet
against him, and yesterday tried to ruin his
chances of winning by dosing him with a
deleterious drug. In this they were defeated
by the fidelity of the groom, who agreed U>
accept the bribe of 4150 offered him, naming
this morning as the time for its payment and
forgiving the dose, but when the cein was
handed him, he put the scoundrel to flight
with a knife, capturing his hat and coat, and

Is Ross and he is known as a vagabond spot t.
He has not been arrested but doubtless will
be soon.
