WEDNESDAY MAY 26, 1875.
Who wrote the poetry entitled
" First Love," the first line of which
reads,"Whoni first we love, you know,
we seldom wed" ? We had the im
pression that it was the production of
"Owen Meredith," Bulwek's sou;
but we notice Ihe lines reproduced in
a late number of the Call and credited
to Julia Ward Howe. Whom Hist
we loved we remember very well.
She was a little freckled-faced, golden
haired elf, to whom we used to give
half of our dinner and all of our
speckled marbles at school some years
ago. She expanded to one hundred
and forty pounds.developed a retrousse
nose and married a railroad conductor.
But who wrote "Whom first we love"
is what is troubling us just now.
Death of Jesse D. Bright.
Jesse D. Bright, a man of national
fame, died at Baltimore a few days
ago. He was a native of Norwich,
Shenango county, New York, where
he was born on the 18th of December,
1812. His public life commenced in
the State of Indiana, where he prac
ticed law and was State Senator and
Lieutenant-Governor. The State in
his day was strongly Democratic and
being an ardent supporter of that par
ty's principles his talent and oratory
soon made him a leader. He repre
sented the State in the United States
Senate three terms, commencing in
1845. In 1862 charges of disloyalty
were preferred against him, based on
the evidence that in 1861 he wrote a
letter to Jefferson Davis, President
ofthe Confederate States, recommend
ing or introducing a person who was
desirous of furnishing the Confederacy
with arms. On this charge he was
expelled from the Senate on the 2d of
February, 1802, by a vote of 34 to 14.
From that time he took no active part
Fire Where There is Smoke.
Every now and then one of San
Francisco's blackmailing newspapers
will make an attack on oue of her
many prominent citizens who have
millions of mouey, and forthwith all
the other newspapers, not many of
whom are a whit more honest but
who do not happen to be in with that
particular attempt to extract hush
money, rush to the rescue and de
nounce the attacking journal as an in
famous blackmailing concern that has
sunk so low that it does not scruple to
blacken the character of honest men.
Now we do not question the truth of
any part of this except the " honest
men" clause. An honest man with a
large bank account who stands among
the king-pins of the community is a
difficult subject to blackmail, Con
scious of hi.s own rectitude, he has
nothing to fear from the slanders of a
newspaper, ami to its insinuations that
he has swindled a widow or robbed an
orphan, he simply points to his record.
Iv a community whose leading citi
zens are composed entirely of honest
men, blackmailingnewspapers are not
a success. Their attacks do not bring
the longed for check, they die out and
the honest man smiles over the grave
of his calumniator. San Francisco
does not seem to be entirely made up
of honest men, and, if we can believe
their statements of each other, fully
one-half of her newspapers owe their
existence to successful blackmailing.
If those prominent citizens were really
honest men, attacks would not hurt
and vehement defense would be unne
cessary. Better still, those blackmail
ing journals would find themselves iv
the position of the Moor after he
smothered his wife.
A Sensible Suggestion.
The question of irrigation comprises
not only how we can best utilize the
waters of our rivers, but to utilize it,
will ultimately become the absorbing
topic of discussion throughout, the
State. This year there is more said
on the subject than ever before, and
next year more will be said than this.
So we shall go ou talking and suggest
ing, realizing more and more year by
year the absolute necessity for doing
what we all want to do and what we
are all trying to think how to do, un
til some practical plan is hit upon and
then will come the consummation so
devoutly wished. Among the multi
farious plans and suggestions already
offered, we regard that of our corres
pondent, "J. G. D.," whose commu
nication appeared some days ago, as
possessing more of the elements of
practicability and better calculated to
insure the greatest good to the great
est number, than any other. The
great danger to be guarded against is
that of preventing the monopolization
of the water by private corporations.
If the ownership of our Jakes and riv
ers is once vested in individuals, the
foundation is laid on which to build
the castle of discrimination and op
pression. If a company or corpora
tion own the waters of an irrigation
district, they hold a power over the
soil tillers of that district which may
be used for purposes of extortion, po
litical supremacy or the gratification
of personal animosity. The individ
ual absorption of water rights which
belong to the State, now steadily go
ing forward, cannot but be productive
of great wrong to posterity and we
regard It as much the duty of our
State authorities to protect these
rights as it Is to collect the revenue
for the maintenance of the State Gov
ernment. The position of "J. G. D.,"
that the lakes and rivers within her
borders are the property of tbe State,
is so strong that it cannot be contro
verted. Spain reserved this right
and ceded it with the territory. It
passed with California In the transfer
of that territory from Mexico to the
United States. The only intrench
ment on this law which the records
will boar out is the Pueblo right which
the Mexican Government in a few
instances granted, of which tbe right
of Los Angeles city to the water of
Los Angeles river is one. If, then, the
State asserts and maintains her ex
clusive ownership to the waters of all
her lakes and rivers, the first and
most important step toward tlie in
auguration of a State system of ine
gation is accomplished. The next is
the placing of the entire management
of the work in the hands of the Sur
veyor-General, who will survey md
superintend the digging of ditches
where the waters they shall convey
will be most productive of desirable
results. After the formation of dis
tricts, the people will elect officers,
who, under the direction of the State
Surveyor, will -keep in repair the
ditches and dispose of the water. If
we follow out this idea in detail, it
will not be difficult to show that all
this can be accomplished without the
issuance of bonds, and that while so
utilizing her water, she will annually
add millions to her products. Even if
there is no revenue from this source,
the return in the increased value of
taxable properly will more than pay
the expense of completing the sys
The Military advantages.of Los An
geles have Men proverbial throughout
the State. Kverywhere they once
spoke of this city as a healthful place.
We would tie glad to record that the
facts would sustain this reputation
now and in future, but we are afraid
we cannot do so. Nature has done
everything for us, and did we but avail
ourselves of onr natural advantages
our sanitary condition would remain
as in the past -the best in California.
The want of sewerage Is impairing the
health of the whole city, and unless
the evil is remedied it will not belong
before miasmic fevers and endemic
diseases will be as common iv Los An
geles as in Sacramento and other not
thoroughly drained cities. Los Ange
les is a city grewh from an old Span
ish town. Its sewerage, though with
out plan or system, was sufficient for
all practical purposes while the popu
lation did tot exceed a few thousand,
but now Hha£ we have a city of fifteen
thousand and are growing rapidly,
the old drains and ditches are not
equal to the demand upon them, and
the result is cesspools and foul blots
In such number that iv any other cli
mate than this an epidemic would
sweep the city. Sickness, especially
among children, is becoming common
and parents aro growing anxious .or
the safety of their little ones. There is
no doubt but that the greater portion
of the sickness prevailing In this city
is due to imperfect sewerage. When
in San Francisco a few weeks ago, the
editor ofthe Herald heard a gentle
man who had spent several weeks in
this city and who had visited us for
the purpose of making his home here,
assert that Los Angeles was tlie poor
est drained city he had ever seen, and
he believed that but for the sea breeze
which fanned itdaily no one could live
there. This is a strong indictment,
and the worst of it is it contains too
much truth. This city is expanding
'rapidly—more rapidly than any other
place iv the State outside of San
Francisco—and we talk of having from
40,000 to 50,000 people here within the
next few years. Such statements as
above quoted will not aid us in the
acquisition of that population and
unless we do something to controvert
such statements, we have attained the
maximum of our growth. What that
something should be is the point to
be reached. In the opinion of our
best engineers and of many citizens
who have given the subject much
study, the first step toward the estab
lishment of an adequate system of
sewerage is the construction of a main
sewer from the city to tide water.
How this may be done best and cheap
est is subject matter for the considera
tion of all. That we shall have to
build such a sewer sooner or later is
ascertain as the sun shines. We are
now expending a large sum of money
in puttingdown sewers here and there,
but they run nowhere and will never
drain the city until a main sewer Is
provided with which to connect all
side drains. We may as well meet
this difficulty now. It must be met
and overcome or we shall suffer at
home and the fair fame of our city
will be tarnished abroad.
