FRIDAY JAN. 18, 1878.
Herald Steam Printing House.
The Herald SI .•.nn Trim lug House Is
not surpassed by any Job Prlutlug office
on tbe P.olflc Coast, outside of San Fran
cisco, la facilities for doing Job work.
Low prfoea, good work and expedition
may be rolled upon at this office.
Every now and then we en
counter utterances In the Republi
can newspapers whose significance
ia that they cau resume poorer,
and Creiarizo tbe Southern States
again, whenever they choose. Now
our brethren are simply mistaken.
When the people, In 1874, took
"the bit in their mouths" aud re
placed a House of Representatives
two-thirds Republican by one two
thirds Democratic, the Republican
leaders didn't like it. Not a bit of
It. They simply couldn't help it.
They were displeased, but they
were perforce content. So, when,
owing to the existence of armed
Qrantlsm in the South, that Dem
ocratic majority was greatly re
duced, they were again obliged to
make a wry face and submit.
There was no help for it. The first
heavy Democratic House of Rep
resentatives was owinir to tbe fact
that the people were ineffably dis
gusted at the complete "sell out"
of tba Republican party to corpora
tions, as exhibited in the exposes
of tba Credit Moblller Congres
sional episodes. Now, however,
we have got down to steady and
enduring politics. The Democrat
ic majority, I n the present House
of cau never be
reduced until the Democratic party
has had possession of the national
administration and abused their
trust—tbe last is an eventuality
which wa hope never to have to
record. The reasou is within the
reach of any reflecting man. The
"solid South" is sensible enough
to recognize and appreciate tho de
votion and the energy of the Dem
ocratic crusade in the North which
has at last forced a recognition
of their rights. So we can rely
pipon the " solid South." In addi
tion, wa have added to this solid
South Florida, South Carolina and
Louisiana which, under bayonet
rule, were all forced to send to
Congress men who did uot in any
respect represent the people of
thoae Commonwealths. Having
this assured ground to start upon,
does any sane man suppose that
the New York aud Pennsylvania
districts which, during the height
of the war, before aud since, have
sent Democratic Congressmen to
the House of Representatives, are
going to falter now? The man
who thinks so, whether a Demo
crat or Republican, is simply fool
ish. Tbe Republican party does
not bring these things about but
simply submits to them, just as il
will have to submit to the Demo
cratic United States Senate which
will assemble on the 4th of March,
Our. colleges and leameil fac
ulties are In tbe babit of bestowing
degrees of various kinds. They
Issue diplomas to doctors of law,
civil and canon, doctors of divinity,
doctors of Medicine, etc., etc. We
very much wonder that no one of
tbetn bas ever yet thought of issu
ing degrees fjr proficiency in the
modern science of finance. Of late,
every one has assumed to be able to
give a lecture embracing tbo whole
range or finance. Just why indus
tries are languishing, why money
is collecting in the heavy financial
centers, why it is as plenty nsdirt
and yet hard to get hold of, is ex
plained with a glibness which is
positively delightful. But, if there
are a thousand lecturers, there are
just one thousand different theo
ries, to a fraction. What we all
painfully realize Is that wo are by
no means "flush." The "rhino" is
hard to be got at. The "rascal
counters," like tricksonie elves, do
hide tbemselve from the eager
quest of covetous or needy. Shekels
do not abound aa in the times Id
which Abraham iold down the
silver for the field of Macpelah.
Though, as a .State and people, we
have even a greater and more
stable reliance than Holomou had
In Ophir, we confess ourselves poor
iiideed. We merely state facts; we
are uot hardy enough to venture
upon theories. Ever ainceotieof
' (lie most sagaoious or the Popes es
tablished the pious lotteries which
figured for so long a time iv tbe
finances of the Holy Bee; ever
■since, iv liombardy, letters of
credit aud the three balls replaced
the rude mediteval finance of stop
ping a man on the highway and
robbing blru, people have known
whether they were poor or rich,
but how long they would be eitiier
poor or rich has remained a
sealed book. The modern
life Is a game of "Ihlmlderig"
—of "now you see it and now you
don't." It is a good deal the
aams with nations. During the
French Revolution every measure
passed to revive the credit of that
phantom money, tho ussiguat, de
pressed it. No man now living
cau tell whether the passage of the
Bland silver bill would raise or de
press the value of that metal. On*
thing, however, appears above all
the mystery aud confusion of mod
ern finance—capital is steadily con
centrating into few bands, even in
the nsw world. Or, to summarize
It in a word, "the rich are becom
ing richer aud the poor poorer."
Knowino the importance of an
equitable fares and freights bill to
Loa Angeles, we hare been all
along anxloua that our people
should lake a temperate and reso
lute but not violent attitude in tbe
matter. We must bear in mind the
fact that Los Angelos, Sau Bernar
dino and Sau Diego counties are
the ouly ones iv the State that are
to-day distinctively in the attitude
of discontented people, and that
they form but a small proportion
of the counties aud of the people of
California. If there aro auy others,
where are they? It is noteworthy
that, ofthe men who, in the old
Booth era, raised their voices
against the railway, ull are
silent now. Where is Bootli him
self? Where is Etheridge? Where
is John F. Swift? Echo answers,
"where?" Dropping the personal
aspect of the question, where are the
Grauges, that were wont to fulmi
nate their anathemas against the
railway companies? Now we think
our peoplo cau get the Legislature
•f the Slate of California—the Dem-
ocratic Legislature—to listen to us
when we make a temperate aud
moderate appeal for fair treat
ment, for ourselves aud for
the rest of the State, lv the mat
ter of freights and fares. In
this matter we occupy the attitude
of a party to a private quarrel.
Justice cau be obtained even iv a
private quarrel, but the effort to
make o third person a party to its
bitterntss is peifectly hopeless.
Let us remind the Democratic
party of tho Slate of its pledges,
aud let us, by all means, keep the
record of the Democratic parly in
Los Angeles county clear. Let us
send greeting to our representa
tives and cheer ou the good work.
The sheep and wool growing in
terests of Los Angeles county can
not fail to be highly prosperous fer
some years to come. Those who
have had faith, and who have
struggled through the terrible
" short grass" of last year, will now
profit by the fact that pasture has
never been more abundant than it
will be during the curreut year, at
least. Already sheep are worth
many times what they could have
been sold for two mouths ago.
The raius have vitalized tills source
of our wealth beyond all others.
One of our leading sheep men has
oarried twenty thousaud sheep
through the drouth, at probably an
extra outlay of a dollar a head. He
finds now that bis sheep are worth
$3 a piece while, a few weeks ago,
he could not have sold them for
" two bits " a head. He is about
forty thousand dollars ahead as a
reward for his pluck and faith in
the future of Los Angeles couuty.
But his reward will not end there.
With the whole sheep Interest of
Southern California prostrated or
utterly obliterated, he is certain to
find his bank account heavily
swollen by the developments of
the next two years.
The Governor has transmitted to
the Legislature the bills matured
by the Board of Transportation of
the State of California. As the case
stands we know neither what was
done with the message, or with
the bills, or what the bills them
selves aro. We heartily trust that
we shall shortly receive a copy of
these documents. They are of the
first importance to Los Angeles, at

Niiiuiuiiry or tiie Report or tbe Mu
uerlnleudeut of Iteo California
San Fh.vncisco, Jan. 17th.—The
following is a summary of the re
port of the Superintendent ofthe
Califomiu mine: Th*yield of ore
for the year was 207,234 tons;
amount reduced 213,68.'! tons, yield
ing bullion to the value of $18,024,
--850 27, of which $9,386,74 i 47 was
gold. Considerable work has been
done on tbs 1400 foot level, but not
enough to determine where ore ex
isted. Tha workings are much in
need of repairs. Much ore has
been taken from tho 1000-foot level,
mostly of a low grade. Th* north
ern portion of the level has been
only partly explored, the drift* ter
minating in a body of poor quart/..
A vast quantity of high grade ore
has been taken from tbe 1550-level.
There is considerable of goad qual
ity remaining aud a large quautity
of medium grade. To the east
ward of the main ore body there is
a large body of low grade quartz
undeveloped. From the 1000-foot
level 105,723 tons of ore have been
taken. Large amounts of good
quartz are remaining. There are
240 feet of ore body in th* south
end of the level which are
still untouched, except hy th*
winze passing through it, showing
good ore throughout. There Is rea
son to txlieve that the whole
block is of tb* same quality. There
is a great quantity of ore iv the
)•;>) foot level, but little having
been taken out except at the
southern boundary. Much more
work is necessary to determine tbe
value of this level. The 1700-foot
level is partially developed at th*
north end, but vary little i* known
of it. Th* ore body on th* 1750
--foot level is very wide and well de
fined, but the greater portion is of
too low a grade to pay for milling
and mining. Th* good or* is con
fined to th* east wall and does not
•xceed tweuty-eight feet in width.
It is believed that much ore exists
between this and th* next level
below. Th* opening of the 1850
--foot level bas beeu commenced
from th* Ophir mm*. A large
amount of work has bean done ln
keeping tb* work* in repair. The

San Francisco, Jau. 17tb.—Tha

session of information which leads
them to believe that Kearney aud

which the Mayor called a special

probable that a proclamation will
be issued witli reference to the in
cipient iusurrectiou which sow
prevails in the city. Measures will
be taken to put it down by force of
