Wk learn from Uen. Stonemau
bat tbe prospects of satisfactory
eglslation on freights ami fares
Iras never better at Bacramento
ban it is to-day. Tbe Railway
Company is thoroughly alarmed;
and, from the energy of its opposi
tion, we may judge of the firmness
of the purpose to redeem the Dem
ocratic pledge for an equitable
freights and fares bill. Tbe Dem
ocratic Board of Transportation
Commissioners have done their
work conscientiously. Should
their several bills be enacted into
law, no State in the Union would
present a railway system so en
tirely under the control of local
legislation as California. As be
tween Railway corporations and
the people tbe principle of " live
and lot live" it the true one. We
are willing to let corporations earn
fair dividends, bnt tho population
whoso servitors they are supposed
to b* should not languish to admit
of this. Wo should like to see our
Paclflo Coizi Railways, for once,
' try tbe plan of gauging what would
bo the affect of a policy which
> should aim strictly at development,
With immediate profit to tbe rail
ways as the secondary idea. How-
OTsr unpromising the result might
be for a few months, we are con
vinced that a year or two of such
a policy, through the stimulated
settlement, growing confidence and
accompanying prosperity of the
State, would pay our Railways
much better than under the pres
ent regime. Then, besides, tbey
would find that discontent had
vanished and that hatred and dis
trust were replaced by universal
good humor. The experiment
would certainly be worth
tbe trial. If the results
should prove to be unsatisfactory
the railways could face the Califor
nia Legislature with infinitely
stronger arguments than are now
available. We are quite willing to
admit that California is a sparsely
settled State, aud that rates both
for fares and freights should be
relatively hlgb. Take, for Instance,
the stretch of couutry between Los
Angeles and Mojave aud Los Au
geles and Yuma, aud compare it
with any equal extent nf country
radiating from New York City.
There are a thousand people who
avail themselves of railway facili
ties on the one to a single person
who dees so ou the other. From
this standpoint tlie position of the
railway people is almost impreg
nable. But there is another view
of the question which should re
ceive a careful consideration. A
tourist or intending settler can
travel first-class from Sau Francis
co to Portland, hy steamer, a dis
tance of 616 miles, for $7 50, while,
by rail, it costs him to go from
San Francisco to Los Augeles, a
distance of considerably less than
five hundred miles, nearly $30.
The question Is, would not the
carry four people
to Southern California, where they
now carry one, if the rates were
half the present schedule? We be
lieve tbey would, and that the set
tlement following on the heels of
such travel would build up a remu
nerative business for the road. If
we cannot get tbe railway compa
nies themselves to try such exper
iments, it is right that they should
be initiated by tlie Legislature.
We should have the satisfaction of
knowing, at least, that we could
take the "back track" if the result
did not confirm the manifesto.
England quite apparently don't
know what to make ofthe Eastern
question. Kussia seems to know
how to settle the matter altogether
without advice from Madame
Britannia. Tlie telegraph advises
us that the British fleet was or
dered to proceed from Besika Bay
to the Dardanelles. Before it had
quite reached the Dardanelles it
was ordered to return to Besika
Bay. This whole episode remark
ably resembles a historical eveut
described by Dryden, In which the
King of France participated. The
lines read:
The King of France, with forty thousuuil
meu,
.Marcb'd up tbe kill aud then march,]
down again.
The British lion may rulHe his
mane and emit his loudest roar,
but th* European world evidently
look upon blm as a sort of modern
"Bottom."
The people of Loa Angelea have
always taken n warm aud cordial
Interest in the development ot
every portion of what they have
been fondly wout to describe as
their " back couutry." We regret
to say that the signs Just now do
not point to auy remarkable degree
of activity in that portion of it
known as Inyo county. Tbe fact
is that Mono county, and that por
tion of Mono couuty known aa
"Bodie," a place about two hun
dred aud sixty miles]north-west of
Darwin, seem to attract all the
interest, of late. The supplies for
" Bodie " go by way of the Central
Pacific Baiiway, via Beno, so that
If we had succeeded in getting tba
tirf* Angalea aud Independence
Railway built to tbe Cajon, and
bad tunneled through the Cajon
Pass to the edge of the desert, the
iuterprise might not, after all,
hart proved of a very profitable
kind. Now, at least, we would
have found both freighting and
passenger business to aud from
Inyo couuty exceedingly dull. But
one furnance iv ull the ample lim
its of that couuty is running now.
Panamint is no more, with a record
of $1,700,000 sunk Irrecoverably.
We heartily hope that we are des
tined to chronicle uo more such un
pleasant developments.
It is noteworthy that tlie fall in
the premium of gold has taken
place in spite of the expected pas
sage of legislation such as is out
lined In the Stanley Matthews
silver resolution. If we were to
credit the New York newspapers,
which are ruu entirely in the inter
est of the bondholding and capital
ist classes, the wreck of matter
and the crash of worlds would be
expected to follow any such legis
lation. Tho fact is that, with sil
ver remonetized, and with thu in
terest ou the Natioual debt paid, at
the option of the Government, iv
silver, investment in United States
bonds, with their comparatively
high rate of interest, is a very en
ticing thing to inhabitants of a
country positively glutted with
money. As compared with Turkish,
Peruvian and the score of other
bonds which have been largely
dealt iv by British capitalists, tbey
are positively nonpareil.
The Associated banks of New
York are beginning to seriously
oontemplate the establishment of
a day ou and after which all their
transactions will be on a gold basis.
The margin between paper money
aud speoie is becoming so small
that suoh action hardly appears to
be premature. What effect tbe
imminent remonetizitlon of silver
will have on such a programme at
this day is a fruitful scheme for
speculation. It seems to us that
there are, for the coming six
month or a year, elements of un
usual fluctuation iv tlie busiuess
affairs of the United States. If,
silver bill and all, the jump
should be made, and we should
prove to have landed gently aud
and without auy perceptible jar, all
the elements of an unusually vigor
ous busiuess revival wuuld exist iv
the United States.
Hydraulic mining will receive
a great impetus iv California this
year, owiug lo the immense quan
tities of snow on the Sierras, thus
guaranteeing abundant water. If
the Stute was able to make a cred
itable exhibit duriug the past year
of drouth, she ought to be able to
roll up a spleudid record the cur
rent year.
The telegraph advises us that the
Eiectiou Committee of the House
have reported in favor of Wiggin
ton as Representative of the Fourth
Congressional District of Califor
nia. Their verdict will doubtless
be ratified by a party vote iv the
House.

Bills introduced: By Ingalls, to
reimburse Kansas, Texas, Ne
braska and Colorado tor expenses
incurred in repelling iuvasiousaud
the suppression of Indian hostili
ties. Keferred.
Morrill argued that to sustain
silver would cost annually one per
cent, for abrasion, while the abra
sion of gold is oue-twentieth of one
percent. It would cost one-four
teeuth more per cent, to coin silver
than gold. To allow duties to be
paid in silver would be grantiug a
heavy boon to foreign industry
without any advantageous equiva
lent. The labor of this country
should be paid in the best money
the world affords. It was advisable
to obtain tbe co-operation of other
leadiug nations in fixing upou a
common ratio of value between
gold and silver before embarking
upon independent and final aotion.
After Morrill closed Wallace got
. the floor for debate to-morrow.

a bearing before the House sub-
Committee on Territories to-day,
io opposition to tba Utah election
bill, giving the people of that Ter

chising polygamists and women.
Cannon d*nled the existence of

declared tbe demand on Congress
for a frae ballot to be without rea

who are making auch demand are
simply carpet-bagger* aud adven
turers.
Dr. Mary Walker protested
agaiust Congressional Interference
with Mormon polygamists on tbe
ground that tbe Utah system of
marriage, from a physiological
standpoint, is an Improvement on
Monogamy and a more enlightened
phase of tbe social evil. Mrs Spen

franchising the polygamista in
Utah on the grouud tbat It would

Autlrre«u'» Objrcllon tv tbe Panel
New Orleans, Jau. 28th.— Geu.
Anderson thus explains why bl
desires a change of venue aud hii
resistance to the State authorities
My information regarding the
characterof tho panel was such a.s
to convince me that it was organ
ized to convict without reference to
the testimony iv my behalf or the
absence of testimouy against me.
I believe that If 1 had appeared on
Friday last I would have been
tried aud convicted before Satur
day night: not because I am guilty
of the act charged, or that any evi
deuce implicating me in it could
have been found, but because f be
lieve it was so determined anil ar
ranged iv advance. Look, for in
stance, at this list of the names of
the persons composing the panel.
[Here Ueu. Auderson presented a
printed list containing 40 names.]
I have searched tbat list diligently
and cau find on it the name of only
one persou, Mr. Becker.with whom
I have any personal acquaintance,
but lam told and believe it to be
true, that not only does this list
not embrace one single colored
man, but there is uot one Republi
can In it from beginning to end.
Does any fair-minded, impartial
man believe that, before a jury
thus made up, I could have any
nssurauce of an impartial trial.
I am willing to submit to the
impartial judgment of any fair
minded man tbat this studied ex
clusion of Republicans from the
panel is au outrage on every princi
ple of justice aud that it gives me
the right to say that the jury is
organized expressly to convict.
Under these circumstauces my
right of challenge could be of no
avail. I have twelve challenges
and when these are exhausted, the
character of the panel would re
maiujust what it was before. I was
entirely ignoraut of tlie Vernon
Parish matter, the record will show
that I was not present. The Vernon
returns were opened iv the pres
ence of the visiting statesman. The
certified reports of bath parties
show that these returns appear to
have beeu passed over to the clerks
for tabulation without remark and
when they were presented to me
for signature, I signed them as I did
those of every other parish. As a
matter of course I had no idea and
had no reason to suspect that any
alteration bad been made in them.
I was surprised when the matter
was called to my attention before
tlie Congressional Committee nnd
I testified then that I knew noth
ing about it.

New Okleans, Jan. 28th.—Ke
turniug Board Anderson, Case
nave aud Kminor were brought to
the bar to-day. Counsel for An
dersou filed a motion for a cbauge
of venue, alleging that he could
uot bave a fair trial in this parish,
the prejudice against him having
iucreased in the last few days. The
defense took a bill of exceptions.
The Attorney-General renewed
his motion for a severance in the
trial of the acoused aud said the
State had wished to try the case
of Wells first, but as he was absent
be would move to call up tbe case
of Anderson.
Judge Collum, counsel for the
defense, opposed the motion for
severance, as it would only be det
rimental to the accused, depriving
them of theircombined peremptory
challenges.
The Court granted the motion
for severance, and the case of the
State vs. Thomas C. Anderson was
fixed fur trial. The impanneling
of the jury then proceeded.

Northeote said In Parliament this
afternoan tbat no intimation bad

posals were not yet officially
known, but had been communicat
ed as authoritative by Count
Sehouvaloff, tba Russian Ambassa
dor. They are mainly tha same aa
those printed this morning. He
would express no opinion 'which
might be used Tor the guidance of
th* country, but he considers the
terms are of a very sweeping cbar
aot*r of autonomy for Bulgaria
that was uot agreed upon by the
Constantinople Conference. Ad
ministrative autonomy was then
oonceded. Now I hero is provided a
total separation from Turkey, un

would *ay nothing, but it must
raise difficult questions, since it
touches other interests. The in
demnity condition is very elastic.
Hew Russia may elect to take in

may ask, are highly important to
Europe. European concert is
therefore necessary. The under
standing is that the strait may
mean something or nothing, but it
is an European and English lu
tereet. The credit asked for was
not connected with sending a fleet
