A Distinctive Los Angeles Policy As we have an entire belief in the future of Los Angeles, as we think this place has sustained the last of its serious drawbacks, we note with an absorbed interest the opportunities which lie before us. We have already commented upon the offer of Mr. Huntington to •lace tho Southern Pacific Rail way, for its whole length, under the supervision of Congress. The sum total of his demand is the mere right to build the Southern Pacific towards the Rio Grande, to a point _ of junction with Scott; and, for this privilege he is willing to volunta rily ooncede tbe priceless boon of a Congressional regulation of a road which is so pregnant with develop ment to Los Angeles. Mr. Hunt ington does not come before Con gress with a petition for a moneyed alms. He is willing to take Scott's •nterprise where Scott helplessly dropped it years ago, and he an nounces his ability to go on and give the country a transcontinental railway, independent of the Cen tral Pacific, subjeot to the caprice of the National Legislature—only asking for a share of what Scott has had since 1571, and what he has ahown himself unable to use. The span of road which Scott has built, since be made his vauut before the people of San Diego, now nearly ■Iz years ago, is a mere bagatelle. Four years ago we were informed that the Texas Pacific Railway had been ironed as far as Fort Worth, and to-day that road is not ad vanced a foot west of Fort Worth. Col. Thomas A. Scott, pseudo Rail way King, omnipotent constructor otrailwayson paper, has realized tbe cbaraoterof the "sturdy beg gar" with which the phraseology ofthe parish laws of England is so conversant. He has begged lv sea son and out. He has begged, and begged, and begged, until his story has become a wearisome monotone, compared to which Hamlet's harping 011 old Poloniua's daughter was a variable and lively refrain. We again say, what we have said all along, that if Tom Scott did succeed in getting his San ■ Diego road guarantee through Con gress, San Diego, and not Los An geles, would profit by tbe measure. We should And, as a result of it all, that onr pretty, rival city would be built up at our expense. A perfect maelstrom of real estate specula tion would spring up iv San Diego, which would carry strangers and a large element of our own city people, down there. For three or feur years Los Angeles would be entirely overshadowed, though then, we admit, our turn would come. It would come because bread and fertile valleys may be ignored for a time, but their per ennial value is certain to assert Itself in time. We will be told that Huntington only makes this proposition iv or der to defeat Tom Scott. We unfelgnedly believe that Tom Soott was already defeated before Congress met. He is in the posi tion of the Irish servant in the farce, who was discharged before he was hired. Tbe country is dove with subsidies under any pretence whatever. When Oakes Ames read bis diary, which resulted in the retirement from public lifeof suoh men as Schuyler Colfax and a hundred others of that ilk, that chapter was closed, If not fore'er, at least until all memory of those disgraceful disclosures has been effaced from the public mind. The interests of Los Angeles really call for tho closing with Mr. Huntington's proposition, liappy for us if Congress can be induced to take these Central Pacific peo ple at their word,especially in view of tbe public sentiment which is rapidly gathering for a national regulation of railways. Mr. Hunt ington has wittingly or unwit tingly himself put in the enteriog wedge for the new era. What more assured and gloiious guarantee of the future greatness of Los Angeles could there be than the starting of a great transconti nental railway from tbe Missis- aippi river, ramifying to all the great Eastern cities, which should find two ocean termini near Los Angeles, one at Wilmington and the other at Santa Monica? If either of these points should be selected, our city would have a capital guarantee of com mercial importance. Lieut. Com mander Taylor, of the Hassler, lias lately written his opinion of the perfect feasibility, through the con struction of a breakwater at Santa Monica, of making that point a splendid harbor. With Hunting ton as the builder of this tiauscon tluental railway, with a branch from Santa Ana to Sau Diego, even the latter harbor would be tributa ry to Los Angeles, Instead of, under the Scott guarentee, Los Angeles being tributary to Sau Diego. An unsurpassed farming and pomolog ies,! country would surrouud a Los Angeles terminus of a transconti nental railway below the snow belt. Building such a railway through it would guarantee us instant, solid and continuous development. We should have, descending through the San Gorgonio Pass, a railway which would he prevented from op pressing our people, or acting un der any but strictly commercial im pulses, by the Congress of the United States itself. That would not be the Scott guarantee, but it ought to be a guarauteo very pleas ant to our people. The frozen truth is that the peo ple of Los Angeles have been "bull dozed" into throwing the wholo weight of their Influence in favor of projects calculated to build up, not this city aud couuty, but a rival. Anything Sau Diego can get she deserves. She has been long suf fering and plucky. But our own people should uot exhibit a stolid indifference when the most bril liant opening ever offered to any city is plainly within their grasp. With nil our heart we hope that Congress will take Mr. Huntington at bis word. If it does, Los Ange les city and eonnty would double their population inside of five years. No one iv California has doubted that Mr. C. I. Huntington and those associated with him have made tbe most of tbeir opportuni ties. No one here will accuse them of auy velvetty, sentimental soft ness. Whatever energy they may have shown in railway building has been accompanied by a quid pro quo of a selfish kind. They are generally credited with having gone for all lv sight. They have never neglected to take the full measure of the goods the Gods have sent in their way. Consequently, when Mr. Huntington lets down the bars aud invites Congress to a supervision of the Southorn Pacific Railway — especially when no moneyed grant or guarantee, is in volved—sensible people would like to see Congress at once embrace the chance of making itself the tutelary genius of those whose ne cessities, on botli sides ofthe conti nent, compel them to look to an equitably managed transconti nental railway for their comfort and prosperity. We would rely far more surely on such a Hue of pol icy, with the sanction aud super vision of the National Legislature, than on anything Col. Tom Soott could or would give us. He cau't do anything to help us if he would, aud we doubt very much whether he would do it If he could. We are assured that, although tbe mills of the Gods grind slowly, they grind exceeding small. Au derson, one of tho Returning Board rogues who threw out upwards of 7000 votes, which had been cast Into the ballot boxes in Louisiana for Mr. Tllden, bus been fouud guilty of the felony attached to the paltering with the Vernon parish returns. Some Republicans in the East are horrified that forgery at tended with a desecration of the sacred prescriptions adhering to the ballot, should meet the repri mand of a jury. We are not of the number. Tho turn of rogue Wells will come next. Who, in view of the developments of the past year, and of the Republican loathing which now greets tbe fraudulent President, shall dare say that the turn of even Hayes shall not come in ita due order? Iv all codes and all ages, the receiver Is as bad as the thief. The Presidential Peck sniff must experience au occasional quaking at the knees as he marks the progress of events. They are of evil omen to him. Onk of the most influential Sen ators of the United States has writ ten to a friend hereabouts lately that he is willing to throw the whole weight of his efforts towards making Santa Monica a desirable harbor by the construction of a breakwater. If our people were to quit "mooning" about projects de signed to save Tom Scott from bankruptcy, aud to build up Phil adelphia and San Diego, they could give a powerful impetus to iegisla. tion which would really help along their own town and couuty. Our own opinion is that at the same time that the Legislature of California passes an acceptable fares and freights bill it should pass a joint resolution requesting Con gress to take Huntiugton at his own proposition, that of building a transcontinental railway which shall be absolutely subject to Con gressional supervision. There would be genuine progress in that. The Legislature of the State of California should never for one moment forget the obligation they lie under to give the people of this State an equitable fares and freights bill. Whatever else is neglected, that should be sacredly attended to. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. IHpoolai to tiie Herald by Ibe Western (Jnjaa Telegrapb Company.) Pacific Coast News. J.eg-ninii »c proceeding-. Sacramento, Feb. B.—The Sen ate took up tba special order, the concurrent resolution introduced by Curtis in favor of the remonetl zation of silver, and Satterwhlte's resolution favoring the repeal of the resumption act and tha issue of paper money. Piersou offered as a substitute for both resolutions: That the State was opposed to tbe repeal of tbe Resumption act and to the remou etizatiou of silver, except upon the basis of tho silver dollar of weight and fineness equal iv value to the dollar of gold, and that its stand ard be maintained from time to time by legislative enactments and only to be a legal tender for fifty dollars. Adopted by 18 ayes to It) nays. The substitute was then subdi vided, on motion of Evans, and thus voted on: First—That the State is opposed to tho repeal of the Resumption act. Ayes 23, noes 6. McCoppin moved that the second sub-division of the substitute be made to read: That the State is iv favor of tho remonelization of silver. Adopted. Ayes IS, noes 11. McCoppiu then moved to strike out the balance of the resolution after the word "silvor," making it read simply that the Stat* was op posed to the repeal of the Resump tion act and in favor of the remoti etization of silver. Lost. Ayes it. nays 15. Piersou then moved to amend by striking out the provision for legis lative enactments to regulate fluctuations of the standard. Adopted, by viva voce vote. McCoppin then moved to refer the resolution lo tbe Committee ou Finance, to be lixed up in proper shape for further considera tion. Carried. Ayes IS, nays 7. Adjourned. Agitators Heleaseil—Aesessuieul. San Francisco, Feb. B.—ln the City Criminil Court to-day, on motion ofthe Prosecuting Attorney, the sureties of Kearney, Wellock, Knight aud other agitators were released from any further responsi bility, defendants being allowed to goon their own recognizance.

Bth.—Len nle McCormick, plaintiff in the re cent seduction suit against E. J. Baldwin, was arrested this after noon on complaint of Baldwin on a charge of perjury. The complaint is based on her testimony to tbe ef fect that sho had never been mar ried, documentary evidence to the contrary. Iv default of $3,000 bonds, she remains in custody. Latest Eastern News. miiiuk Bun timet. Omaha, Neb., Feb. Bth.—Major J. M. Walsh, Superintendent aud Inspector nf tbe Nortbwesteru Ca nadian Mounted Police, passed through Omaha this afternoon, en route to Canada to attend the opening of tbo Dominion Parlia ment. Ho has come as direct as possible from Fort Walsh, his headquarters, on Milk river, in the British possessions, where be has three hundred mouuted police un der him. He says that Sitting Bull is corralled iv camp and has not been on American soil. United States troops have been misled by trappers who did not kuow what they were talking about. Sitting Bull is lame and is not in fighting condition. His fighting ohiefa are Long Knife and Little Mountain, while be is simply counsellor. He would not have been permitted to cross into this country. If he had done so lie would have been brought back, so Major Walsh states. Major Walsh was met at tbe depot by General Williams, Adjutant-General of the Depart ment of tbe Platte, and had a long interview concerning Sitting Bull and the comiug Spring campaign. Political Love- react. Washington, Feb. Bth.— The Post, the Washington Democratic organ, to-day publishes tbe follow ing: While the last and decisive vote was being taken in the Wig glnton-Pacheco contest yesterday, Mr. Wlggiutou walked over to Pacheco's seat, extended his hand aud said, "Governor, we have ni ways been friends personally, though enemies politically. I hope that tbe result of tbis vote will not disturb our friendly relations." With a magnanimity worthy of the gentleman that he is, Governor Pacheco extended his hand and said: "Circumstances have made me your political enemy, but per sonally I hope to be your friend iv the future as I have been in the past." Tbe Pout adds: "This is the pret tiest political love feast ou record." It also |says, by way of editorial comment: "Of course everybody know 9 that the discussion was merely a matter of form, and all the wind from the bellows of statesmen was intended alono for the fevered brows of their far-away constituents. It was, in truth, au nt her case of eight to seven. There was a doubt, and the party in power resolved that doubt in its own favor, as all parties have done from the beginning of the world and will continuo to do until the end of time. Bepurt lv favor »l Aeltlln. Washington, Feb. Bth.—l v the Home, Sapp introduced a bill to aid in the construction of a rail road from a point opposite Mem phis, on the Mississippi, to Jeffer son, Austin or Man Antonio, Texas, and thence to a point at or near El Paso.

Acklin, contestant, Is. CuarKea Aeralnet au Arlauua JnJ;« Washington, Feb. B.—About a year ago charges supported by tbe signatures of a large number of citizens of Arizona were filed at the Department of Justice against Associate Justice Tweed, then aud now a member of the Arizona Su preme Court, but formerly a mem ber of the California State Senate from Nevada county. He was charged witli being intemperate, immoral and under the control of a ring who used bis power for cor rupt purposes. Counter represen tations iv behalf of Judge Tweed were, however, received here of sufficient force to secure a decision from the Attorney Oeueral that tbe further consideration of the grounds of opposition to Tweed might properly be deferred until near tha expiration of bis judicial term. Lately a number of recom mendations for Tweed's reappoint ment have been tiled and among them one bearing tbe signatures of a large number of Arizona law yers. One of these lawyers, who is certified by prominent Californians as a man of good character, now Informs the Department that his name was forged to this recom- 1 mendation aud that many others signed it under the compulsion of fear of injury to tho interests of their clients, as it was presented to them for signaturejust at the com mencement of a term of Court. Senator Bootli has recommended Tweed's reappointment,hut Senator Sargent and Representatives Davis aud Page recommend the appoint ment of Charles Silent, of San Jos6. Booth has written a let ter sayiug that, in case Tweed is not reappoiuted,he also will recom mend Silent for the position. Opeuluif er elie Dominion Par liament. Ottawa, Feb. Bth.— The Domin ion Parliament was opened witli • speech from the throne by tin Governor-Geuoral. He allude with satisfaction to tho settlemen of the tisliery question and refenv I in the following language to th 1 American ludiaus 011 Canadian soil: "Karly in the past Summer a large body of Indians under Sitting Bull from tho United States.crossed into British territory to escape from the United States troops, aud have sinco remained ou the Canadian side. The United States Govern ment made 11 friendly but unsuc cessful attempt to induce these In dians to return to their reserva tions. It is to be hoped such ar rangements may yet be made as may lead to their permauent peace ful settlement and thus relieve Canada of it source of uneasiness and heavy expenditure. European Cable News.

Suleiman Pasha has gone to Lar i.-sa, the capital of Thessaly. There is a Cabinet crisis in con sequence of Parliament's criticism of the government's abolition of Grand Vizierates without consult ing Parliament and the contem plated polioy of Ahmed Veflk Ef feudi, the new President of tbe Council of Ministers. Euallalt Flees Ordcrod 10 coustnu* tluuple. London, Feb. Bth.—o P. M. —In tbe House of Commons this after noon Sir Stafford Northcote com municated a summary of the terms of the armistice. He said: They disclose such a state of affairs that the government, in view of a possi ble disturbance iv Constantinople, has ordered a portion of the fleet thither; not as a departure from neutrality, but as a protection to life and property. The government has notified this step to the other powers, asking whether they will join iv the movement. It has also notified Russia. London, Feb. Sth —7 i\ M. —In the House of Lords, Lord Derby, Foreign Secretary, made a state ment similar to that of Sir Stafford Northcote in the House of Com mons. He said he was justified iv his resignation when tho fleet was first sent to Constantinople, but says he approves the present ac tion, in consequence of the altered aspect of affairs. In the House of Commons, Sir Stafford Northcoto's announcements was received with deafening cheers. Attlludo or Uennanjr. ""Berlin, Feb. Bth.—From the speech from the throne on the opening of Parliament yesterday, making no mention of the three Emperors' alliance, but emphasiz ing tho existence of friendly rela tions with nil the powers and more especially with Austria, it is con cluded that the German Govern ment has not entered into any en gagement to support any new de mands of Russia. This inference is not a little strengthened by tbe royal speech expressly mentioning the programme agreed upon at the Constantinople conference as the basis of the coming peace. Bletnarck 10 he Interpellated. Berlin, Feb. Sth.— The Conserv ative and Liberal parties iv tiie Reichstag to-day came to an agree ment iv regard to a joint interpel lation to be addressed to the Impe rial Chancellor, inquiring whether he intends to make any statement respecting the Eastern question and as to the position which the German Empire has taken re garding it, aud if snob declaration is intended, what day it will be made. Tiie interpellation lias been signed by the leaders of the two parties. It is rumored In parliamentary circles that Bismarck isexpeoted iv Berlin Tuesday or Wednesday. f'roclnuiallou lur Protection.

Buyers bare paid full prices or more for wheat aud maize within the last two days. At this market to-day there was a good at tendance. Bed wheats were held for a penny to two pence per cental advauceou Tuesday's quotations, which millers paid reluctantly. White was comparatively neglect ed aud unimproved ou the whole. Only moderate transactions are noted. llio Tluiee on Ilie Mlluatluu. London, Feb. Bth.—Tbe Timet'* leading editorial says It does not sbare iv tbe excitement and alarm which yesterday's news created in many quarters, but thinks the time has come when tbe whole respoei bllity of the action ought to be thrown upon the Government and a gouerous support accorded it, if the legitimate interests of tho oouutry are to be protected. The Government may have to act aud to act promptly. It is impossible for tho opposition to net for them or take their places and It ought now to be left to them to take the course they deem necessary on their responsibility.

Tho aper ient properties of Honletter's Stomach Bitteis constitute a most useful ugent In overcoming constriction of the bowvll and promoting a regular haliit of body. It Is infinitely superior to the drastic ca thartics frequently used for the purpose, since it does not, like them, act violently, but produces a natural, painless eilect, which does uot impair the tone of the evacuatory organs, which It invigorates instead of weakening.
