SATURDAY, NOV. 27, 1875.
Colonel Crawford informs Di
that the track of the Los Angeles and
Independence Railroad will be com
oleted to the depot hy this (Saturday)
evening, and trains, passenger and
freight, will commence running on
schedule time next Monday.
Commenting on an article in the
Hkrai.u setting forth the prosperity
of our city, the San Francisco Call
says: "The prosperity of Los Ange
les will he generally hailed as auspi
cious, as it will attract Immigration
to neighboring sections, and ulti
mately secure to that region a meas
ure of prosperity, to which its geo
graphical position, its healthful cli
mate and productive soil entitle it."
A DEGREE of success has attended
the attempt to introduce the shad in
Pacific Coast rivers. The first young
shad from the Hudson were placed in
the Sacramento river, ut Schauta, in
1871, and the second lot in 1873. Late
ly sixteen full grown shad were caught
at Vallejo, and half grown fish have
heen taken from other points on the
river. From this the Commissioner
thinks the experiment has been suc
cessful, and that shad will soon be
come plenty in the Sacramento.
Some one who probably knew little
of lawyers and less of the Grangers,
started the report that the Grange had
declared war on the legal fraternity.
Of course every intelligent person
knew there was no truth in the report
and to finally and effectually settle the
matter the Colusa Sun, which is a rec
ognized Grange organ, says v proposi
tion of that kind introduced into the
County Grange there would be uncer
emoniously kicked out and the mover
receive a lesson which would in all
probability quench his thirst for ab
surd sensations. The California Gran
gers, says the same authority, are not
given to crudities of this character,
though like all other organizations
there are addle-pated individuals ever
ready to seek notoriety at the risk of
their own folly. Of this class is the
lawyer fee bill so much talked of
Cost of Fencing.
According to the figures furnished
by the Department of Agriculture
fencing is a very great expense to the
farming portion of the nation. The
number of acres of land fenced In the
United States is 260,506,614: and the
number of rods of fence 1,619,190,448.
The cost of this is $1,f47,541,931 This
approaches the amount of national
debt on which interest is paid, and ex
ceeds by about one billion of dollars
the whole paper circulation of the
United States. The total cost of an
nual repairs is stated at 93,963,1°",
and the annual interest on the origi
nal cost at C per cent, at 1105,652,996,
making a grand total annual tax up
on the farmers, apart from the ex
pense of rebuilding these fences, of
$108,800,182. California has invested
in fences over one and a half millions
of dollars, and but for the no fence law
in operation in many courts the item
of expense would he much larger.
The day will come when there will he
no perishable farm fences in the Unit
ed States. In many portions of Fu
rope the only fences to be seen are
living hedges. If people were com
pelled to fence in those localities the
expense would be so great that no
profit would accrue from soil tilling
and agricultural pursuits would have
to he abandoned. Les Angeles val
ley will never be fenced except with
the hedges that may be easily and
cheaply grown from willow and other
species of hedge making wood. The
same is true of a large area of the San
All men ure fallible, and Ihuse pos
sessing the greatest wisdom are most
ready to acknowledge their weakness,
and look with more leniency upon the
mistakes of others than upon their
own. Hence their willingness to cor
rect and make restitution. Our legis
lators as a body are generally men of
consideration and a good degree of in
telligence, yet they have heen guilty
of many egregious blunders, which
we have no doubt they will make
haste to correct when again assembled
in a legislative capacity. The Act by
which the Governor was made a mem
ber of the State Hoard of Education
and the Secretary of State a member
of the State Prison Commission is un
wise. These are important positions
and can only he judiciously tilled by
men possessing talents peculiarly
suited to the position. It is true we
always expect to have men of talent
to fill the offices of Governor and Sec
retary of State. Rut if they are faith
ful servants in the ofllce to which they
are elected they will have no time to
attend to anything else. Resides, they
may possess nil the talent requisite to
fill the office to which they were
elected and be totally unqualified to
control the educational interest of the
State or manage a penitentiary. None
but men who are experienced in such
things are competent to control them.
Tt was certainly a great oversight in
the Legislature to suppose the Uov
ernor ami Secretary would be suitable
men to place in charge of such inter
ests. Thomas Jeitekson had the
talent to make one of the best Presi
dents the United States ever had, but
he would have been a very poor cap
tain of a steamboat. Yet we have no
doubt Thomas Jkkfekson would
have guided a steamboat quite
as successfully as our penitentiary has
been conducted. Under proper man
agement this institution would pay
its own expenses anil contribute a
large amount to the treasury of the
State annually, but under its present
management it draws a large amount
from the treasury each year, and thus
it will always be until it is placed un
der the control of some one compe
tent to manage it. Our educational
interest is suffering In the same w ay.
We must have men of experience in
these positions—men capable of de
tecting any errors in the system, and
able to suggest tho needed changes.
The people are being taxed heavily by
the blunders and mistakes of incom
petent men. We do not attach any
blame (o our former Legislators for
these mistakes, no doubt they did the
best they could under the circumstan
ces, but now that the mistakes are
seen the next Legislature will be se
verely censured if they fail to correct
Funeral of Major Kerns.
The funeral of the late Major Wm.
tf. Kerns took place to-day at 10
o'clock A. St., from the St. Charles
Hold. The services iv the parlors of
the St. Charles, were conducted by
Rev. Mr. Hlckey, of the Fort Street
M. F. Church, and were of an impress
ive character, the discourse abounding
in beautiful passages and ideas. The
remains were followed to the grave hy
a large number of the friends and ac
quaintances of the deceased, under
the immediate auspices of the milita
ry of the city, consisting of the Grand
Army of the Republic, under com
mand of Past Post Commander G. F.
Gard, which turned out in force, and
of which deceased was an honored
member. The veterans of the Mexi
can war and a fine escort of the l.os
Angeles Guards in full dress uniform
under command of Captain Bartley,
tho whole preceded by Desmond's
band. The remains were deposited
with military honors, concluding
with a salute of three volleys dis
charged over the grave. The display
was of an imposing character, credita
ble alike to the friends ofthe deceased
having the matter in charge, and to
the organizations represented. Thus
lias concluded the earthly career of
one who by his deeds of valor had
gained for himself the profound respect
of his companions in arms, and for his
many sterling qualities had endeared
himself to all those who knew him
intimately. Some of his friends here
have been associated with him in va
rious ways since his advent upon this
Coast, now some eleven years, and
their grief and tears show how deeply
they deplore his sudden death, and
how difficult it is to reconcile them
selves to the loss of their noble heart
ed friend. His absent friends and rel
atives may be assured of the heartfelt
sympathy of a large concourse of
friends in their bereavement,although
not personally Known to them.
The Santa Barbara Premt says: It
will possibly be remembered hy the
readers of the Prttt that, last June,
Captain Mullet, who then Command

enteen sea lions oil Santa Cruz. He
started with them for New York, left
the finest of them with the authori
ties for the Centennial exhibition, and
carried the rest of them to Europe,
where he sold them to good advantage
not having lost one of them during
the voyage. He passed through here
on Saturday en route for Los Angeles
with several animals, viz: lions, tigers
leopards, and a huge bear, which he
proposes showing to any one having
a fancy for pets. Captain Mullett will
