THE DALLY and WEEKLY HER
ALD has more than double the cir culation of any other paper published in Southern California. Business men recognize it accordingly as the best advertising medium South of San Francisco. THURSDAY JAN. 20, 1876. The San Francisco Post heads an editorial "Wanted—A Harbor." Here is an opportunity for San Diego to dispose of its stock in trade. Whether intended or not, there is a grim significance in the remark af the Express, that only new comers were losers by the late bank failure. Senator Sargent has written a resolution of inquiry into the public affairs of the Pacific Railroad Compa ny. A great deal of money might be won if takers could be found on bets that Sargent will never introduce a resolution to enquire into the private transactions of that company. ASSEMHLYMAN WILCOX, from his seat in the House on Saturday last, announced that he would throw out of tho Capitol window any newspaper correspondent who wrote anything of fensive to his dignity and honor. It strikes us that Mr. Wilcox is a little too sensitive for a Legislator, and we predict that before he has entirely car ried his threat into execution, Maripo sa county will have a vacancy in the Assembly. We are in receipt of a number of letters from depositors in Temple & Workman's bauk, in which informa tion is desired as to why the firm se lected Messrs. Freeman and Spence as its assignees. It is stated that Mr. Freeman is indebted to the bank to a considerable amount, aud Mr. Spence is a comparative stranger to our peo ple. We canuot give any light on the subject. We are not informed as to the amount of paper the bank holds against Mr. Freeman, but if he is in debted to the firm in any considerable sum we should not consider him, nor any man so situated, qualified to act as assignee. The object ion to Mr. Spence on the ground that he is a stranger we regard entitled to consid eration. The-gentlemen selected to wind up such an establishment should in our opinion have no pecuniary in terest therein, and should be well and familiarly acquainted with the busi ness men of the community. Coast Steamers. Goodall, Nelson & Perkins in sist on running their line of steamers as beet suit themselves. This does not agree with the notions of the Express of this city, and it threatens them with an opposition line. We imagine that this will so badly frighten Messrs. Goodall, Nelson & Perkins that they will henceforth land their steam ers wherever Senator Jonks or his or gan may direct. But seriously while we would like to see a steamer land at Santa Monica and Wilmington every day, we do not expect that un opposi tion line will be put on for the reason that from the completion of the rail road which will be about the first of July next, all or nearly all the travel and fast freight will pass to and fro by railroad. The steamers will become freight boats, and there is not suffi cient of this class of patronage to em ploy two lines of steamers. However much an opposition line of steamers would benefit our city and valley, we do not apprehend that there is the slightest probability of our being fa vored in that direction. It will not pay the steamers, and steamship own ers are not anxious to lose money. The Court House Question. The bill now in the Legislature au thorizing the building of a Court House and Jail in this city provides that money shall be raised to defray cost of building thereof by the sale of seven percent, bonds, payable Janua ry first, 1896-twenty years hence. It also authorizes the sale of the old Court House property and the use of the money for which it sells in the construction of the new building. Sometime ago the Herald suggested that it would he a good plan to sell the Court House, winch belongs en tirely to the county, to the city, and thecouuty purchase the city's hair of the Jail property and on that build a Court House and Jail. It now ap pears that the city does not desire to purchase the Court House building, and we will therefore make another suggestion. The bill provides for the sale of the old Court House property at, we presume, a cash price. So sold the property would not sell for over $35,000 or $40,000, nor could the coun ty afford to pay a large price in cash for the city's half of the Jail property, now it occurs to us that a more satis factory transfer of both pieces of prop erty might be made by making the terms of sale and the payment on pre cisely the same basis that the building bonds are issued. If the Court House was sold for seven per cent, per annum, notes payable in 1896—jnst when the bonds are due—the old building could be made to go a long ways toward paying for the new ones. Ou these terms tbe old Court House property would sell for $60,000, perhaps $75,000. The rate aud payment of interest be ing the same, the sum for which the property would exactly liquidate a similar amount of the bonds. If the city declines to dispose of her half of the Jail property on -these terms, the refusal would not interfere with the plan so far as the Court House is con cerned. It is certain that the Court House would sell but for a compara tively small sum if sold for cash, and it is equally certain that it would sell for a good price if sold on long time at a low rate of interest. THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. A Sensible Suggestion. Editor Herald.—ln reading the Express o( Una date, I see it is pro posed to build a new Court House and Jail. It would probably be good econ omy todo so. I think, however, the estimated value of the property to bo sold is too high, if cash is expected to be paid. Ido not believe any such a sum as $130,000, or even $40,000, can be had for the Court House aud lot. Would it not be better to sell the build ing on time, having the payments se cured by mortgage. The county sev en per cent bonds will brobably not sell for more than 85 cents on the dol lar. Now if the house and lot were sold on time,laud the mortgage bear ing 8i percent., the county would re alizealmost the same amount in inter est that it would pay ou her bonds, and at the same time get a higher price for the property. As to the lot ou Spring street, the county should purchase the city's interest and pay in bonds, or sol Ito the city and take her bonds. Eitherthe City Hall or Court House should lie ou this lot; and the Codrt House should not be placed West of Spring or South of First, North of the Plaza, or East of jLos Angeles street. Consideration should be hud in locat ing this building that the present bus iness ceuter of the town is not affected. Tax-Pa veh. The Irrigation Question. Editor Herald. —In response to your invitation for discussing the question of those two hills now before the Legislature authorizing the City Council and Board of Supervisors to issue bonds for the building of a Court House an J Jail, and for the improve ment of irrigation, I propose raying a few words on the subject of improving irrigating facilities. The first ques tion is how far a dam, such as is to be built, will improve facilities for iriiga tingthe land of this city or the lands below the city. The writer hereof is of opinion, and he is supported by the best Engineer in authority in this city, that a dam will not facilitate irrigation, But will have a contrary effect. If the Council spend $120,000 in building a dam, who will have to pay for it? The peopleof this city, of course. Sup pose they raise the water five or ten feet above its present level and carry it to the city lands below Brooklyn Heights, tiiat are n«w reasonably good sheep pasture Worthslo per acre, and bring 500 acres under successful irrigation, and raise the sheep pasture to a valuation of $200 per acre, we would gain §90,000 in property valua tion. That is to say, the fortunate possessors of the $10 per acre sheep land aforesaid will gaiu $90,000, aud at an expense of $120,000 to the tax-pay ers of this city. Suppose further, tlie facilities for irrigation bring under successful irrigation a few thousand acres of land to the South of and below the city; who will be enriched there by at the expense of tho city's tax payers? Persons owning worthless tracts of land below the city, certainly. NOW THE FACT Is, the present system answers every purpose for irrigating all ofthe land inside the city, except Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles, which never can be irrigated except by construct ing a huge dam at big expense, to be borne by we who do not need one. If we are to have expensive improve ments in building dams, etc., let those who will be enriched thereby stand the cost thereof. I hereby fling my banner to the breeze, and if any kight feels disposed to brake a lance with me on this ques tion, then let him try, "Ou, McDtifl". H. Crispin. Los Angelcf". Jan. 19th, 187 G. In Favor of the Bill. Editor:—l hope the Bill: An Act to provide means for the improvement of irrigation in the City of Los Angeles, will he passed at the earliest time by the Legislature, as it is certainly a great benefit to enlarge the area of land for agriculture, and to be well provided with water in the dry season. Many people desire these improve ments greatly, as it is a general opin ion that the quantity of water in the dry season may be much increased by a large reservoir above the proposed submerged dam, and a great disad vantage conuected with TUE IRRIGATION OF LANDS, » viz: The filling tip of tho ditches with sand and its deposit on the land may be lessened. Hence a systematical general improvement of the water supply for irrigation will embrace three different points, viz: A sub merged dam to increase the water-sup ply in connection with a large reser voir, a rectification and better con struction of the zanjan or ditch es by flumes or concrete to lessen the loss of water, aud lastly, special ar rangements to prevent deposits of sand iv the ditches and on the laud. AS I UNDERSTAND, the submerged dam is to be built where a large reservoir for the water may be found. A jetty will join the dam above to prevent the sand moving in the main zanzas. Openings are constructed in the dam, to regulate the flow of water and for other pur poses. A rectification of the zanjas should be made to obtain a velocity of water proportionate to the quality of the soil and not too large to move large quantities of sand. In accord ance with such a velocity it might he necessary to alter the fall of the ditch es either by increase or decrease of their length at certain places. CONCRETE SHOULD BE USED when the seepage is considerable and the zanjas pass under streets, but this improvement carried on in a small scale year for year. Flumes are less expensive at the first outlay and more adapted to private or small ditches and may be excluded from the main zanjas. Sand accumulates above the sluice-gates and will be retained if tbe gate forms an overfall and the water moves only near its surface through it. All tliese improvements will greatly diminish the quantity of sanii, which may besides be collected in boxes and removed cheaper thuu at present. I SUPPOSE THE CITY authorities will charge a competent man to carry out these improvements as contemplated by them, as much money may be saved by it. Proper proposals, including preliminary sur veys and estimates or work are neces sary conditions for such a position, as more valuable services are rendered to the community iv this way than by the sale of water, mostly done by the present incumbent of this office and which might be properly left to the City Treasurer. The city authorities have the power to effectuate such a progress for the improvement of irri gation, whidi will be a great success, without doubt, in the future. Yours, resoectfully, Progress. Los Angeles, Jan. 18, 1875. Latest Telegrams. Dispatches of American Press Associa tion by A. A P. Teletrrnuh Co. [SPECIAL TO THE HERALD.] PACIFIC COAST. For Los Angeles.

Pioneers have appointed a Commit tee to see what part the Society should take in the Centennial at Philadel phia. Japanese war vessel Isukuba sails for Honolulu to-night. Richard Ott, who last night present ed charges against Bolander, the Su perintendent of Schools, to the Board of Education, is represented as having made them because of spite. When Bolander was a candidate for the posi tion last fall, Ott oft'ered to do the work of both Secretary and Assistant of the Board of Education and save the city 9160 a month, which would be to Boalnder's credit, aud Bolander promised Ott the position of Secretary if elected. Afterwards Ott told Bolander he could not do the work of both positions, when Bolan der took back his promise. Hence Ott's actions, which Bolander's friends say, is entirely a trumped up affair. Legislative News. Sacramento, Jan. 19th.—Nothing special to-day. Wilcox is iv his seat.

Mrs. Blockwell walked to Elk Point a dis tance of twenty miles, iv her bare feet, arriving there in the morning.
