EDITORIAL JOTTINGS.
A Poor Kii.t,. —In another column wo
publish a full synopsis of tho Constitu
tionalConvention llil! introduced l»y the
joint Senatorial nnd Assembly Commit
tee. Had they joined for the purpose of
defeating the expressed wish of the peo
ple for n new Constitution, they could
have agreed on no measure which would
moro certainly prove disastrous t.< the
people’s hopes. The number of Dele
gates—150—is too great ; large bodies nre
unwieldy, move slowly nnd aro more
easily corrupted than smallor ones. The
pay allowed Delegates is ridiculously
small and well known to be inadequate ;
so for from being ft just compensation for
important and responsible services, thj
pittance named will barely cover neces
sary expenses based on strict economy.—
AVhat m«n of ordinary ability in Trinity
County, or any other county, can afford
to go to Sacramento, paying his own ex
penses to and fro and losing four months’
time, for $500 ? No man can afford fodo
it, unless it may be he lias a private ax to
grind or “lakes the chances" on lobby
influence. For the amount named, it will
ho difficult to secure even a respectable
minority of first-class men to accept seats
in the Convention. No others should ho
sent there, but the people will be forced
to take what they can get in the way of
candidates. A Convention made up of
professional politicians nnd worse is evi
dently what tbo opponents of a New
Constitution wish, nnd the Hill proposed
surely promises as much. Any document
sueli a body might promulgate would
meet with defeat when submitted to tlie
people, for a Convention under this hill
would be n splendid field for operations
on the part of railroad, hank and land
ring? and monopolies. Iflhe Legislature
cannot give us n better bill than tiio orio
proposed, the Constitutional Convention
will be a failure. What the people want
is a Convention .composed of intelligent,
honest, and sincere men, and for the ser
vices of such they am willing to pay a
liberal prieo. Cheap men will prove the
dearest in the end. Reduce the number
of Delegates one-half, or at least
strike out the fid delegates at largo ; then
pay them $10 per day and mileage the
same as Legislators receive.
Tiik Sii.vkh ISii.t..—On Fiidny of Inst

invito the Governments of tiie countries
coinpo-ing the Latin J nion, so-called,
and of such other European nations ns K
may deem advisable, to join the United
States in n conference to adopt a common
ratio between gold and silver, for the
purpose of establishing, internationally,
the use of bimetallic money, and securing
a fixity of relative value between those
metals ; such conference to be held at
such place in Europe or in the United
States, at such time within six months as
may he mutually agreed upon by the ex

Tiik Hon. J. K. Luttrell is evident
ly under the impression that the Chinese
rpiastion is to form the basis of tho next
general election, and is fortifying his
chances by introducing in Congress ns
many of bis Anti-Chinese absurdities
nndinpracticnbilities ns that body can
bo induced to listen to. 11 .Mr. Luttrell
could bo made to understand that there
are treaties to bo abrogated or modified
before anything effectually can bo done
in this direction it would undoubtedly
spare bis colleagues of the House many
an infliction. But wo doubt Whether ho
can be made to understand IhU, or indeed,
anything cl-n. In tho meantime it ho
prefers to make himself tiie laughing
stock of the country wo suppose there is
no law to prevent his doing so. — It us

•I on kb as a Htatkbmast.— -Senator
Jones has wtnii'il a good deal of praise on
acco.mt of his late efforts on tlm silver
qmstioii and, we think, deservedly, so. —
The study of political economy is not one
which generally overburdens the brains
of the nveiago politician, and ho who
zealously cultivates it, applying it judi
ciously to legislation, deserves to occupy
a place among statesmen. Senator Jones
was once a member of the California Leg
islature, occupying a seat in the Senate,
lie had previously been Sheriff of some
northern county. He gave no indication
of brilliancy, but exhibited plain, bard
horse sense. Ho condescended to run as
1 Joutcnnnt-Governor with Gorham. 11 is
defeat was the result, and a result most
fortuitous. Instead of becoming Ward
en of tlie State Prison for four years, lie
hied himself away on the Comstock,
amassed a fortune and became United
States Senator. It was supposed bo would
exhibit in his new position just ns much
ability a> Sharon or Iiurnum, and now we
behold him taking a front rank with
Maine, ConWling and Edmunds. All
this proves that Mr. Jones lias made up
ti.y severe mental discipline for the defi
ciency of his early education. —Stock K.c
changc, J ’i b. 10.
Tuk Post (Washington Dernocratic'or
gnn) publishes tho following: “While
the last and decisive vote was being taken
in tho Wigginton-l’acheco contest last
week, Mr. Wigginton walked over to
Pacheco’s scat, extended his hand, and
said: “Governor, we have always been
good friends personally, though enemies
politically. 1 hope that the rosu't of the
vote will not disturb our friendly rela
tions. Witli a magnanimity wart by of
the gentleman that lie is, Pacheco extend
ed liis hand : “ Circumstances have
made me your political enemy, hut per
sonally I hope to he your friend in tho fu
ture us I have been in the past,”
The Debris Question. —J. P. Pierce,
a heavy owner of gravel mines atSmnrti
ville, Yuba Co., testified as follows before
tho Debris Commission :
Have been interested in mines twenty
four years. Think that $.">0,000,000 has
been invested by San Francisco capital
ists in placer mines, tho value of which is
from $100,000,000 to $150,000,000. Wit
ness thought that inside of live years the
product of tiie placer mines would bn in
creased to $20,000,000 per annum. The
; expense of working these mines would not
' be so great in tho future, in proport'on to
tho product, as in the past. From one
half to throe quarters of the surface gruv
{ el of mines in which he was interested
had been washed off. The value of the
lower stratum in proportion to tho latter
was about four to one. Of tho dirt at
present being washed away attheSmarts
villo mines, Yuba county, one-half of it
was too heavy to be washed on tho low
lands and into the rivers and bays. This
was the case at all the claims, the debris
of which was deposited in tho canyons of
the Yuba river. Farming lands owned
by witness had been covered by the de
posits washed from tho mines. Tho re
sult was that land which had been bought
by him for $5 per acre was paying inter
est on $20(1 per acre. Five crops of alfal
fa per year had been cut from this 'and.
Land washed in Nevada county by this
muddy water produced much more per
acre than in El Dorada county irrigated
with clear water. Much land along tho
rivers which produced nothing but mus
qilitoes, could ho filled in by this deposit
and made to produce thirty bushels of
wheat per acre.
Dtsoracefut. Failure. —The Com
mittee appointed to procure the means for
a creditable display of California produc
tions at the Paris Exposition held a meet
ing yesterday, and gave up tha enterprise
in despair. They found that this present
Legislature is so narrow minded as not to
have the slightest comprehension of mor
al forces, or so indifferent to tho future
welfare of the State as not to care wheth
er its resources and capabilities are adver
tised or not. Rome of them are of tho
opinion that we have already too many
productive inhabitants, with our five to
the square mile, and the sense of the ma
jority appears to bo that an appropriation
ot $<>,(100 to 12,000 would be very liberal.
| The Committee, well knowing that four
or five times that amount would be need
| ed for anything like a respoctabie exhibit,
| concluded that further effort is useless
and adjourned sine die. This ends tho
| matter, for it is now too lute to reorganize
| by the appointment of a new Committee;
and so California must go unrepresented
and unheard of at Paris, savo ns she can
; bo advertised by the individual effort of
! private citizens. Another nail in thecof
! tin of tho Democratic party.— S. F.
Chronicle.
A N i;\v M k.v ico Duel. —A duel roeent
occurred on tho Cebolla. A Mr. Colburn
whs recently placed under §500 bonds for
slandering a lady, and straightway sent a
challenge to the principal witness against
him—a man by the name of Stino. The
challenge was accepted, the weapons shot
guns. On the first fire oils of the charges
did not explode, and the other only tin
cap. The seconds then endeavored to
effect a reconciliation. Stino was willing
to ha reconciled hy his antagonist paying
8-75, but as the entire party could raise
only $i) 05 the fight had to go on. On the
second (ire Colburn'a gun went off in the
air, and ho ran behind Mr. Smith, who
was conveniently handy. Smith ielt
every inch a Smith and picked up a rock
to defend himself. The entire party then
indulged in a free light, which was ended
hy tlio arrival of the Sheriff, who arrested
the whole outfit, and the principals wore
placed under§500 bonds to keep the peace,

An Ouecion Widow as a Nevada
Wife.—Not many months ago A1 Tur
kins, n well to do rancher in Dayton,
t"ok to himself an Oregon widow tor a
wife. It was a big event. There was a
gay party, champagne was free as milk
and water, and thu blowout was
pronounced a success. A few days ago,
however, a cliaiiffh came over the spirit
ol tlio milk rancher's dreams. Ho did
not hitch very woll with bis new affinity
and ordered her to take her four children
and skip out. She produced a Colt’s
navy revolvor and informed him that
if ho attempted to put on any French
airs with her slic'd fill him as full of
lends as the jumping frog of Calaveras.
A neighbor interfered in his behalf and
she lin'd them both out. Slio now holds
the redoubt. Forking says that Oregon
widows are hefty.
Wiikrk I1e Was Staiihku,—“Gen-
tlemen of the jury," said a Tuscaroro law
yer, "what kind of swearing has been done
in this case? Here we have a physician,
a man who, from his high and noble call
ing, should bo regarded ns one who would
scorn to stain his soul with perjury, or he
guilty of giving utterance to an untruth-
Hut what did ho testify, gentlemen? 1
put the question to him plainly, as you
all heard: ‘ Where was this man stabbed?’
And what was his reply? I'liblushingly,
his featmes as cool and p|aeid as though
cut trom marble, he replied that the man
was stabbed about an inch and a half to
the left of the medial line, and about an
inch above the umbilicus, nnd yet we have
proved hy throe unimpeachable witnesses
that ho was stabbed just below the Young
America hoisting, works.” — Klko l'ost.
A Sinoui.au Fi leak of Nature.—
The liluo Mountain rango funning
through Pennsylvania is said to bo divid
ed at regular intervals of twenty seven
miles by rivers and water courses. From
the Susquehanna river to the Swartara
river is twenty-seven miles, from tlio
Swartara to tlioSchuykill is twenty seven
miles, from the Schuykill to the Lehigh
is twenty-seven miles, trom tho Lehigh
to tho Delaware is twenty-seven miles,
and from the Delaware to a pond near
Newton, N..),, is twenty-seven miles.—
\\ bother these distances have actually
been measured our informant does not
state, hut we find upon examination of a

tlioso points mentioned are all about the

Long black hairs in genuine imported

A Santa Clara paper tells of a dou
ble-headed snake recently found in that
county. Might it not be that the editor
was in that peculiar condition when men
see double, and even a bar-keeper looks
like twins.
If you want office from the Working
man's organization, you must learn the
carpenter’s trade. Bones, of Alameda,

What will the Workingmen do when all

There is no doubt that in case of the
President vetoeing tlio Silver Bill, it will
receive the two-thirds vote necessary for
its passago. Divided politically, there
would he fourteen Republicans arid ten
Democrats to sustain a veto, and 24 Re
publican and 27 Democratic Senators
ready to pass tho hill over it. Davis of
Illinois being, for purposes of this cal
culation, as he may in fact he practically
considered for all others, classed as a

Frank Vi. Day, an old citizen of Butto
county, died at Pence’s ranch, February
lllh, after a lingering illness of several
years. Deceased was Sheriff of Butte
two terms, and was a popular and widely

The Chico Record says .Mr Day was as
saulted by Chinamen in the lava beds of
Oroville while collecting taxes in INTIi,
and beaten until lie was insensible, which
seemed to destroy his health und break
down liis robust constitution.
.Mokai.izing on tho result of strikes,
the Now York Sun . says : For every
week lost in a sliiko a certain number
of week’s work nt tho higher wages
struck for is required in order to avoid
positive loss to the workmen. Thus in
tho case of a strike of six months dura
tion for an advance of ten per cent, in
wages, five years labor at the higher
rate will be required in order to make
up the positive loss incurred in tho
strike.
Ybry little lms lately been said about
tho manufacture of silk in California; yet

seventy hands, all white, and its success
