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

prevent them from being damaged by
dirt and dust, they have decided to

SATURDAY, MAY 29, 1875.
The careful manner in which the
San Francisco papers touch the half
dozen different schemes for supplying
that city with water shows that none
of the projectors have got down to
business.
Hon. Thomas Beck of Santa Cruz
county is a candidate for Secretary of
State at the hands ot the Democracy.
Senator Beck is a popular mati at
home and abroad and possesses the
qualifications required in the office to
which he aspires.
Heavy failures are reported to have
recently occurred in England and San
Francisco commercial dispatches in
dicate an unusually heavy drain on
the banks and heavy commercial
houses. The fear that the money
market will be so tightened in this
State as to be seriously felt is enter
tained. The fact that we shall not
export as great an amount of wheat
this year as usual, will add to the de
pression. Our business men will see
in these indications sufficient reason
for keepiug their houses in order.
Forewarned is forearmed.
Infuriated, passion-blind, reck
lessly-inclined females, with blood in
their eye and a revolver in their hand,
are becoming too common in San
Francisco for the safety and comfort
of lawyers. The latest legal victim is
the handsome Col. W. H. L. Barnes,
whom one Mrs. Loomis sought to take
in with her little pistol. It was all
about her daughter Georgia, well re
membered by those familiar with the
theatre purlieus of Bush street. The
Colonel's only fault appears to be that
of .having been so generous aud kind
hearted as to invest about fifteen hun
dred dollars in food and clothing for
the mother and daughter.
The Bulletin refers to the Republi
can primary as a "funereal" affair,
though whose funeral it was is not
indicated. There was a time when a
Republican primary was regarded as
preparations for a Democratic funeral.
Times, however, are changea, and
things are not now as they used to be.
The great party—great in numbers, at
least—has been shorn of its strength,
and like the grasshoppers of Kansas,
after everything else is devoured, it
has devoured itself. Alas, poor
Yorick. Time and innumerable thefts
have told upon thee, and to-day thou
1 iest a putrid corse which no man dare
approach unless with a burning rag at
his nose and the assurance of a fat
Federal office as a reward.
Our neighbor, the Evening Express,
begins to throw out indications that it
does not intend to be left out in the
cold during thecampaigu of this Sum
mer. It wants to be an organ, pro
vided its elevation is accompanied by
sufficient collateral to maintain with
proper dignity the importance of the
position. We have read the story of
Daniel in the lion's den; we have
shed tears over the narrative of the
little boy who could have stolen ap
ples but wouldn't; we have listeued
with agonizing suspense to the recital
of the escaped nun, and we have suf
fered all the agonies of a night inter
vening between the promise of a
birching and the fruition of the prem
ise, but none of these have so affected
us—have so excited our sympathy and
wrung our heart—as the pathetic ap
peal of last evening's Express for the
vacancy in the Independent party.
We trust its moans will not be un
heeded by the Federal-officer-Repub
lican-Independent-give-us-the-offlces-
aud-you-may-go-to-the-deuce Conven
tion which is to be held in the Court
House to-day.
Needed Improvements.
We are doing good work in the way
of improving our streets. We waked
up to tbe necessity of filling up the
ancient lakes and ponds and grading
our streets up to high water mark and
the modern standard rather late, but
we are awake now and are mending
the condition of things so rapidly that
in a short time the streets of Los An
geles will compare favorably with
those of any other city in the State.
But the people of this vicinity have too
long neglected one essential improve
ment, and we call attention to it now
In order that it may receive that con
sideration which the comfort of our
rapidly increasing population de
mands. We refer to the thoroughfares
by which people reach and leave the
city. All roads lead to Rome; which
means that all roads in this valley
lead to Los Angeles, yet it is an unde
niable fact that none of these roads
are good outside of the corporation.
Indeed, many of the outside streets
are at times almost impassable and
at no time pleasant drives. These are
matters which should receive the
early attention of the Common Coun
cil and of the Board of Supervisors.
The inlets to the city should be im
proved as well as the streets of the
city. There is now no inviting drive
of any great extent, yet there is a
great deal of pleasure and recreative
riding done by the citizens and vis
itors of Los Augeles.
Justice TrafTord yesterday bound
over Patrick Goodwin in $200 for the
action of the Grand Jury, for shooting
at his partner, Frank Toll. The latter
was put under $100 bonds for his ap
pearance before Judge TrafTord this
morning on a charge of shooting at
Goodwin. If tbe best man wins then
Goodwin ought to come out ahead,but
if not, just remember that we TbM-ed
the whole story.
Irrigation.
Editor Herald: lam not in the
habit of rushing into the public prints
for the purpose of seeking redress for
grievances, either real or imaginary;
but after repeated wrongs upon myself
aud others, and when forbearance
ceases to be a virtue any longer, then
I feel it my duty to defend our rights
and" property. In view of the fact
that the American people very often
have to be driven into every advance
ment for the good of the great major
ity, that same fact holds good here in
the minor department of Los Augeles
government. I sneak particularly of
the water and irrigating privileges.
These, of the greatest importance to
us all, are the least understood or
cared for by those wh" run the city
machine. Yet the authorities manage
to take the irrigator's coin,
with a permit to get the water if you
can. This can be more directly ap
plied to those who live in the suburbs
ofthe city, where little or no atten
tion is paid to either bridging cross
ings or even providing a ditch of suffi
cient dimensions to carry the water.
But still a more grievous imposition
have many of us to complain of, aud
that is the practice of selling a greater
number of permits than either law or
ditch capacity admits of. For instance,
a ditch carrying less than two " irri
gating heads," on which is frequently
sold two, when only one; and often
from two to four heads, when posi
tively the zanja will only contain two
heads of water. Now then, where Is
the redress ? We hold a permit to get
the water, if we can; the city has got
our money; we paid it in good faith,
and now we demand good faitli from
the city.
One more item: Whilst the area of
irrigable land and agriculture is
spreading oeeanward, what is being
done to husband the water? Plenty
of water for us all, if judiciously
managed. Wake up! Give us water!
Economy.
A Strange Case.
Yesterday Judge Gray was occupied
in trying tlie case of the People vs.
Louis Runkel, the driver of a butch
er's wagon, charged with assaulting
Hing Tip, a Chinese gardener. The
jury was an unusually intelligent one,
and they listened patiently to the evi
dence, but received no enlightenment.
The first witness was a German lady,
who could not speak English, so Sam
Prager, a juror, was sworn as inter
preter, and soon found out she
knew nothing of the case. The
next was a Spaniard, who
could only tell what he didn't know
in Spanish, and Mr.Wolfskill, another
juror, soon ascertained that this gen
tleman could throw no light ou the
subject. The last witness was a French
man, who could only partlet Francain,
and the jury again furnished an inter
preter in Mr. Gravel, and the French
evidence muddled the case still more.
In despair tlie Constable rushed out
to find a Swede, an Italian and a Chi
naman for witnesses, but the jury has
tily wrote out a verdict of not guilty
and fled. Prager, Gravel and Wolf
skill threaten to shoot the first Con
stable they see who has any summons
for them as jurors on a Chinese case.
Death from Apoplexy.
Yesterday morning J. D. Connor, a
well known builder, was found iv a
dying condition iv Hagan's Head
quarters saloon, by the proprietor. It
seems the deceased had surreptitiously
retired to the card room, locking him
self in, about closing time on Thurs
day night, where he remained all
night. In the morning Hagan, the
proprietor, finding the card room
locked, had to climb through the tran
som, where Connor was found as
stated. Deceased was about forty-five
years of age, and leaves a wife and
several children to mourn his melan
choly death. Coroner Richardson
summoned W. S. Manning, E. Nich
olson, M. Goldbaum, D. Hoover, John
B. Knox and Wm. Monks as jurors,
and they returned a verdict of death
from apoplexy. He was a member of
the Los Angeles Guards, and will be
buried to-day with military honors.
Nowhere in the world has the art of
photography readied a higher degree
of perfection than iv San Francisco,
and among the many elegant photo
graphic establishments of that city,
the Elite Studio of Bradley & Itulof
son stands at the head. We are in
receipt of photographs of two scenes
In the drama of the " Two Orphans,"
In which the Lingard sisters are play
ing the leading parts, at the Califor
nia Theatre, which, as specimens of
photographic art, cannot be surpassed
anywhere. We are indebted to Mr.
Geo. B. Rieman, the gentlemanly
manager of Messrs. Bradley & Rulof
son's Studio, for these artistic produc
tions.
The First National Gold Bank will
be in French Renaissance style, two
stories high, brick, with iron front.
The banking room will be 24x40, di
rectors' room 16x24, and the vault of
large dimension and of the most sub
stantial Cincinnati make. The wain
scotting, fluted pilasters and cornices
of the bank will be of the most sub
stantial and elegant description. The
second story will comprise ten offices,
with all modern conveniences. The
bank will be finished by September
Ist.
We learn from Mr. W. J. Welch
that in a few days some noted horse
stock will arrive from San Francisco
overland and occupy stables already
prepared for them at the Agricultural
Park. Among the expected wonders
are Roan Charlie, owned by Mr. Smith
of Logansport, Indiana, a 2:30 horse;
and Buck, a dun horse, owned by Wm.
Benbam of Salt Lake, and reported to
be a second Don Ellpha, having made
2:45 in his earliest history on the track.
The bids for building the new First
National Gold Bank of Los Angeles,
were as follows: Wm. Jorres, $15,180;
Price & Hove, $16,941; A. M. Shannon,
$16,000; C. R. Fickedt, $17,900; Buch
anan, $15,300; Chhikolm, $15,400;
Skinner & Co., $15,874. Mr. Jorres of
San Diego being the lowest bidder, ob
tains the contract.
A gentleman lost a pocket-book be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock last Thursday
evening in going from the Marble
Works to the Wine-Growers' building,
by way of Main and First streets. The
pocket-book contained papers of value
only to the owner. A reward of $50
will be paid the finder, upon delivery
of the same at this offlce.
The change of the route of the Coast
line stages between Los Angeles and
Santa Barbara goes into effect on
Monday next. The four-horse wagons
which the company intends to put on
between our city and San Diego, will
be ready by the middle of next month.
San Diego Items.
[From the World, 2Cth inst.)
A little boy, a son of Mr. H. S.
Dougherty, was severely hurt yester
day, at the wharf, by climbing on the
cars as they were moving. By some
means he got in between the two cars,
and had the heel of one of his feet
badly cut. Mr. Simpson sent him
home, and he is doing well. Parents
really should give their children more
attention, and see to it that they are
not allowed at the wharf, where there
is constant danger.
The mail between this point and
Los Angeles is horribly out of joint in
some way. It is not in the carrying
capacity," for that is as prompt as the
sun, and never fails. But it is in the
"tlx up" along the live. About every
other day the papers of Los Angeles
fail to arrive. We feel sure the stage
could carry them, if put on it.
[From tbe Union of the 26th.]
A. E. Horton and party returned on
Monday from their excursion to the
falls of the San Diego river. They
have enjoyed a most delightful time,
aud are enthusiastic in speaking of the
remarkable beauty of the scenery,
which, they say, is surpassed in Cali
fornia only by that of Yosemite.
We are informed that Hon. Mr. Am
erman, Superintendent of the Railway
Postal Service, is on his way down the
coast, and may be expected here short
ly. We hope that he will speedily
rectify the detention of oi.r mails in
liOs Angeles, which has been going
on about long enough. We are in
clined lo believe that he will do it.
