p fares are an exigent de
of tha times. Tho tourist
ending settler who arrives
Francisco finds that he can
jo Loa Angelas, a distance of a
tie over four hundred miles, first
as, on tha steamers, for SIS; and
he travels by rail, Including
eeplng car* aud meals, he finds
.hat the single trip stands him iv
from $28 to $29. On the other
band, he learns that ho can reach
Portland, Oregon, a distance of six
huudred and sixty-one miles, first
class, for $7 50. The odds are dis
astrous to us. While the truth is
that both Oregon and Washington
territory are Infinitely less desira
ble for settlement than Los Ange
les county, the facility for getting
there takea multitudes up north
who, if they had bad the opportunity
to go to Los Angeles at an equal
outlay, would have preferred
Southern California. We hare al
ways sincerely believed that there
, la Mere money to the railway com
pany in half its preseat fares. As
between a fare sohedule of two and
ahalfcsntsand five cents a mile,
we honestly think that there is
;twtce as much money to the rail
way company in the former. It is
Just as easy to oarry forty people in
: a railway coach as ten. The wear
' and tear is bo greater w itU forty
' than with ten, and wo are confi
dent that the forty would be forth
. coming if this enlightened aud
progressive policy weiegiven a fair
trial. We should suppose that the
railway magnates would be the
more amenable to such arguments
because, from the moment an im
migrant is lauded in Oregon, he
Ho longer contributes to their in
come in any shape or manner
whatever.
Asa Ellis has done his constit
uents a good turn in introducing
into the Assembly his bill provid
ing that two sessions of the Su
preme Court of California shall be
held in Los Angeles. The Supreme
Court of the State of Pennsylvania
holds sessions in Philadelphia, in
the Eastern part of that State, in
Pittsburgh, in the Western part,
and in Hairisbugh, in Central
Pnnnsylvania. The same rule pre
vails in most of the other States,
and it is found to work excellently
ln practice. The United States
District Courts of Pennsylvania
bold sessions in different parts of
that State. The District Judge for
tbe Western District of Pennsylva
nia holds sessions lv Pittsburgh,
Williamsport and Erie. The Judge
'of the Eastern District also visits
different portions of the district
subject to his jurisdiction. The
same rule prevails with regard te
these Courts in other States. What
we need is a District Judge of the
United States for the Southern
District of California. Until such
a Judicial office is created, Judge
I Hoffman should hold a term of his
"court in Southern Califerniuia.
The delay and expense involved in
SK'rto.o ! ii both our State Supreme
Court and the United States Dis
trict Courts having to go hundreds
of miles for a forum in which they
cap.be heard is well-nigh insufler
aule. They often amount to a
practical denial of justice.
Expensive trausportation seems
to be a characteristic of the Pacific
Coast. A correspondent of the San
Francisco Chronicle, writing from
Walla Walla, Washington Terri
tory, says that it coats up there $C
a ton to transport wheat to seaport,
on a narrow gauge railway, a dis
tance of thirty-three miles. This
Is simply infamy. It is a short
sighted policy. It is the old story,
over again, of killing the goose
which lays the golden egg. The
present Legislature of California
can make it impossible that such a
thing should be done iv this State.
As the case stands now,our farmers
cau get their grain to market by
rail, a distance twenty times as
fySat, for less money than it costs
he Washington Territory farmer
| v fransport his thirty-three miles.
~ jfequitable fares an.' freights bill
will give our people a bond from
I fate that they may put in crops
; with the certainty that thsy shall
be abl > to market them advanta
geously. We are glad to be assured
'by our Sacramento correspondent
that our members are at work in
earnest in furthering such a men
ure.
THUS far Los Angeles county has
taken the rag from the bush iv the
matter of rainfall, barring no sec
tion of tbe State, "moist couuties"
and all, evea including Shasta,
wilh its one famous record of sev
enty inches in a twelvemonth. Up
• vJUa-tt Saturday the rain record of
couuty—mark that, the
1?y county, par excellence, of the
...itate—was a little more than twice
that of San Josfi, while the rtcord of
Los Augeles county—our own sta
tistics being based on the United
States Signal service Bureau here
—was thrice that of Sau Jose. As
ws stand now, a mapjiincent har
vest Is assured In i tone 'uplo Oos
Angeles valley. T 'y pre
dieted that this would be a year of
copious rains hereabouts, aud we
stick to that prediction. It is a
somewhat notable, If not remarka
ble, circumstanos that the Her-
ald's weather prophecies have
been, in every instanoe, verified te
a hair. At the outset we claimed
the margin of the Apostle John, iv
the Apocalypse, "of a time, and
times and half a time," but our
previsions have been so accurate
that we have not needed this ap
proved license. If we have, iv this
matter, attained almost the flip
pancy of Beecher, we cau at least
plead that we indulge iv it not
from the pulpit hut from an edito
rial tripod. Iv the interest of re
ligion, it is perhaps right that we
should suggest that our liberal
rainfall Is owing to the fact that,
prior to the last heavy ruin,prayers
for rain went up to heaven from all
tbe Roinau Catholic Churches of
tbe diocese of Los Angeles and
Monterey. Whether our ether re
ligious denominations also prayed
for rain we are not yet advised.
We are occasionally amused at
tbe restiveuess of our people uurler
a temporary back-set. If a failure
of Temple <St Workman's Haul;, a
drouth and a terrible visitation of
small-pox, cannot be relied upon
te beget a (light degree of business
languor, It Is a pretty pass. Ev
erything now is as propitious as
tbe present season. Iv Congress,
Scott and the Central Pacific aro
contestants for legislation of which
we may say, it' cither wins, this
sectieu will be vitalized. If the
Scott guarautee passes (aud we
confess now aa always we have lit
tle belie f in it) the Southern Pa-
Oiflo Railway will lie sold to him
by its present owners, and, if we
don't get rid of monopoly, we shall
at least be ou the direct line of
a transcontinental railway. On
the other hand, if the
Central Pacific wins, the
Southern Pacific will be pushed
forward ut once until it reaches the
Kio Grande, and, ultimately, the
cities of Mexico and Vera Cruz.
Any of these eventualities means
great development iv the region of
which Los Angeles is the center
aud tbe ocean outlet and eutrepot
Wilmington, aud Santa Monica,
as tbey stand to-day, have ample
facilities for transacting all the
business of Southern California and
the interior couutry for the next
twenty years. As ports they are
satisfactory, and pregnant of possi
bilities which should even embrace
the trade of Indus aud of Orme.

Yuma, Jan 15th. —Another ship

Silver King ore was shipped by
the Southern Pacific Railroad from
here to San Francisco to-day.
Tbe jeeTlialnr* m court.
San Francisco, Jan. 15th.—The
cases of Kearney, Wsllock and
Pickett were culled in the City
Criminal Court to-day. The de
fense moved to examine the Grand
Jury by whom the prisoners had
been Indicted as to the prejudice or
bias that influenced tbem at the
time the indictments were found.
It was alleged that the Grand Jury,
being capitalists, had expressed an
opinion on the subject before tha
session of that body and that it
was disqualified by reason of bias
and prejudice. The grounds for
the motion were not supported by
affidavits and the defense were
given until this evening to procure
affidavits.
Herklagmen's Nomtuallon.
Oakland, Jan. 15.—Ths Work
ingmen last night nominated J.
W. Bones as a candidate for State
Senator (o fill the vacanc/ caused
by the death of Nathan Porter.
Kearney was present and support
ed the nomination in a speech
slightly more abusive than usual,
If anything. The workiugmeu re
fused any compromise with other
parties. Bones Is a carpenter by
trade and is said to have had
some practice as a public speaker.
He stumped Alameda couuty du

Virginia City, Jan. 15th.—Last
evening this city was filled with
rumors of fights in the lower levels
of the Alta and Justice ground. For
tunately they were not true, al
though it is very likely that there
will be trouble when cross-cut No.
2, now bsing run on the 1150 foot
level of Justice is connected with
the south drift of the 1150 foot level
of Alta. This connection has been
momentarily expscted toHbe com
pleted since yesterday morning.
Meantime the fighters of each mine
remain near at hand ou the lower
level. The number of fighters
hired is variously estimated, but it
is generally believed that there are
four en each side. More could not
move to advantage iv the narrow
drifts, and would only be in each
other's way. Sheriff Btslly has made
no move to prevent the hostile
meeting as he would consider the
taking of such a step unwarranted
by law in the abteucs of positive
information; but at the first
tidings of a fight be will march on
the works wilh a posse and held
them until tbe offenders are sur
rendered to them. There is some
talk among the Miners' Unions of
Virginia, Gold Hill and Silver
City to consider the situation and
ominous threats were uttered ou C
strset to-day that if aay single non
combatant is injured ths initiers
will tarn out in a body and hang
every fighter in the neighborhood
of Alta or Justice ground.

During the last -4 hours tho en
tire State, *y ' " « ttom, has
„—»» X-.
been visited with a ram storm. In
the vicinity of Sau Francisco bay
there has been from one to three
inches of rain in different localities,
the fall being heaviest to the north
and northwest. No detailed re
ports have been received from the
northern coast, the storm having
prostrated the wires. Sacramento
has received from one aud a half to
two iuolies. lv Salinas and Pajara
valleys about one inch aud three
quarters have fallen. Iv the South
ern coast counties the fall has
varied from half an inch to about
an inch and three quarters in Los
Augeles valley. The rain has been
everywhere accompanied rjy a
strong wind from the south and
southeast which still continues
and though the rain has ceased in

San Francisco, Jan. loth.—W.
T. Duncan and W. S. Duvall,
charged with felony iv aiding tiie
escape of Duucan and Lewarne,
were belore the Police Court this
morning. They waived examina
tion, but tho prosecution examined
a number of witnessss. Mrs. White's
story, in whose house the fugi
tives were concealed, was much tv
the same effect as that before the
Grand Jury,already published. B.
B. Pinney, a stock broker, seemed
to know a good deal about the ar
rangements for the escape and
the part taken in them by defend
ants, but declined to testify lest he
might criminate himself. He evi
dently knew the whereabouts of
the fugitives until within the last
few days. Capt. Lees knew noth
ing of the whereabouts of the fugi
tives. Mayor Bryant wits called
but could not be fouud.
It rained heavily all last night,
with ths wiud strong from the
southeast and south. It stopped at
about 11 this forenoon aud the
wind hauled around to the south
west, but appearances favor a con
tinuance of the storm, after brief
sunshine. Tha wires of tho West
ern Uuion are dowu in all direc
tions. The few reports received
render it evident that the storm
lias been general and heavy
throughout the State, About two
inches of rain have fallen here
since last evening.
