Railway Speculations. The time ia rapidly approaching when Congress will deliver its judgment on Tom Scott'd Texas Pacific Railway guarantee. Last Summer we put ourselves on record that Scott would develop more en ergy and show more strength in the present Congress than in any preceding one. This is his last > Congressional effort. If he falls now he fails forever. At the same • .time we proclaimed our belief that j iad not a solitary chance of sue- I a unless he patched up a com ,>iomise with the Southern Pacific I Railway. We intimated a doubt of the ability of Scott and Stanford together to put through a Demo cratic Congress any of their pet measures. We entertain that doubt still. We certainly do not believe that Scott alone can do it, under •ny circumstances. There is just now a lull In the battle. It may prove to be that the combatants are composing tbeir differences, and that a com promise will be evolved resembling the Scott-Huntington negotiation of 1572, by which the Pennsylvan ian agreed to buy the Southern Pa cific. Tbeso gentlemen assailed each other with remarkable feroc ity before the House Committee, but their hard blows were deliv ered in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Tbey are ready to eventuate in the most gushing friendship should aucb. a course subserve their mutual interests. In view of a possibility of that kind, it is just as well to give a passing attention to tbe provisions of tbe guarantee which Scott is seeking to get through Ceugress. The long suffering people of San Diego assume, as a matter of course, that if the guarantee is passed the road must be built to their bay. In this they may prove to be reckoning without their host. It should be borue iv miud that Col. Bcott'a origiual plan con templated a Pacitic terminus at San Francisco for the Texas-Paci fic. He was afterwards forced to make San Diego bis nominal Pa cific term i mi*, bnt lie avoided this difficulty by discovering that it was "commercially sbortei" to go to San Diego by way of the Sau Gorgonio Pass. Tlie agreement which be made with Huntington to 'purchase tlie Southern Pacific shows just what milk there was iv that "commercially shorter route" coacoanut. The fact stands to-day that any one who will read the bill Scott is seeking to put through Congress, oin discover iv it no guarantee that he will ever build tbo road on the direct route to San Diego. Its lan guage is nicely contrived to admit of a compromise with tlie Southern Pacific Railway, i. c , the purchase of the latter toadway by the Texas- Pacific. The phraseology of tbe act directs Soott to build so many miles yearly westwardly from Fort Worth aud so many miles yearly eastwardly from San Diego. No penalty is provided for the failure to build these stipulated seutiousof read. Ou every ten miles of com pleted road he receives his issue of guaranteed bonds. Ihe penalty comes In it he fails to build a con tinuous line to San Diego within ■ix year*. Tbe penalty is a pecul iar one. Iv the event of such fail ure tbo Congress of the United State* may authorize somebody else to build the uncompleted suc tions oft ho road. Thus tho case stands: Supposing that, iv the six years, Soott should have built from Fort Worth to Yuma, to the point of connection witli the Southern Pacific Railway, be could stop at that point arid the Congress of the United States might authorize •omebody else to build a railway from Yuma to San Diego on the direct route. It would uot be a ■very Inviting speculation, how ever. In this view of the case, Scott might get his Bubsidy and might purchase tlie Southern Pacific Rail- Tray, building only to Yuma. In %hat event San Diego would get a branch of the road from Coltou, or ma extension of tbe Santa Ana branch of the Southern Pacific. Of course, this is all the merest •peculation, but it is a hypothesis with a strong shade of probability Underlying it should there soon ap pear to b s a cesation of ths hostil ity betweeu Scott and Iluutington. If the Southern Pacific managers Bannot build tlie road themselves to the Rio Oraude they would re tard their investment as a very poor one. Meanwhile, all arrangements hat could possibly be entered into ire confronted by a Congress that las solemnly placed itself ou the •cord, In explicit terms, as aati lubsidy ami ami guarantee Both : leott aTld the Southern Pacific ' (oast of their abilty to build their ' ranscoutiiiental railways without ny Congressional aid. Scott can i lo it, he says, but wants tbe guar- I ntee. The Southern Pacific cau J k> it, they say, without either land t grant or guarantee, If the worst comes to the worst, though tbey want the land grant. Congress is quite likely to take both at their word and tell them to go along and build, and if Scott threatees to put In another six years without get ting his road west of Fort Worth, that body will be apt to consider the question of forfeiting the fran chise, and revokiug the land grant of the Texas-Pacific. Angelenos are entitled to be content uuder any aspect of the question, for tbey are absolutely certain soon lo have a transcontinental railway passing through their city, whether Stan ford or Scott shall prove to be tlie builder. One of tbe most notable ti.iugs of the late Legislature was the unwillingness of both parties to veuture upon any radical railroad legislation. The Republican party can make uo capiuil out of this cautious temper of that body, bo cause the members belonging to that party were as conservative as the Democratic majority. Iv the House there were twenty-six Dem ocrats who were iv favor of sweep ing legislation aud twenty-six Dem ocrats who were opposed to it. The Republican Assetublymeu were divided in exactly the "Tsarue proportion. In tbe Senate pre cisely a like state of things existed. Los Angeles Democrats, who were anxious for a sweeping railway law, should hear the fact in mind that tbe temper of the rest of the State is very different from ours. As far as the mass of either parly felt disposed to go was simply to secure the assertion of the State's right to regulate the railways, aud this was accomplished iv the Hart bill. The people of this county would have felt juetly Incensed if our own delegation had faltered in Its advocacy ef the just demands of their section. We arc inclined lo think that the railway authorities have determined on a policy of conciliation of all the interests and sections of California, aud that we shall be met iv the spirit in which Governor Stanford met the people of Stockton. There would be both money aud popularity for the rail way iv such a course. We would suggest that a reduction of fares between San Francisco an 1 Los Angeles would be Ihe most accept able olive branch the railway mag nates could send in this direction. For the information of those who look to the Hekai.ii for polit ical information, we will state that the Kearney movement is on the ebb tide, uud that it will be stranded on a very bleak lee shore. It has alro.idy lost its novelty, and the first effect of Kearney's pecu liar rhetoric having passed away, its peaked and Gothic brutality abrades tbe feelings of every right minded citizen. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. t&petrial tr> the flcrnht by tbe Western Union Telegraph Company.l Pacific Coast Hews. 1 j Ilvamry-llnyee Casr. San Francisco, Aprii Oth.—ln t the Police Court this morning, the r case of Michael Hayes, who threw Kearney off tha platform at the 1 recent Plait's Hall meeting, came r up. The defense show a disposi , tion to make tbe trial a sensation by digging up the whole Kearney ' movement in connection with the affair. Captain Short, of the po ■ lice force, who was in charge of the i squad of police at the Piatt's Hall , meeting, was the only witness ex amined this morning, and hia tes • timouy was confined to actual oc i currences at the meeting, • Surveyor Uniterm Aiiicm |i,>»<(— KutlruaU work. I San Francisco, April oth.— . United States Surveyor General Ames died at Sau Rafael this morn ing, of abcees of tbe liver. • Tlie railroad company have be gun moving teams from Benicia to Martinez. Tbey will be employed in cleaning up the road from Mar ' tinez to Oakland, which has been obstructed by laud slides,washouts, I etc., since tbe commencement of . the rainy season. When that is completed so that material can he ' transported from Oakland to Mar tinez, work will be commenced on , the line to connect Martinez with Bantas. Work on this line was stopped some time ago by the suit • brought by Robinson, owner of the ranch which tbe road would neces sarily run through, who got out an injunction against the company. Th* passage by tbe Legislature of tbe eminent domain bill clears the way for the completion of the road. The I sum Dividend. San Francisco, April 6.—Con solidated Virginia and California declared the usual dividends. The latter has a lurplus of $95u,000 left over. Further uetaiia uf Ibe More Case San Buenaventura, April o.— In the More case to-day Juan Oli vag, Jim, tbe Chinese cook at the ranch, aud Austin Brown were ex amined. The two former knew Hotbing except the fact of the kill ing, aud identified none of the murderers. Austin Brown sworn: About ten days or two weeks berore the mur der Sprague came to my house and proposed to me to assist in killing More. He related the grievances of the settlers, saying that More was gobbling tbe water and as Boon as he was dons shearing would turn his sheep ldose oa our grain and grass. He said More would have been killed long ago if any one had been detailed to doit. I said, Let you be the man. Ha re plied, I have Just come to see you , about that. We have now au or- i ganizatlon to kill him. I asked . who composed It, and Hprague said J that Curlee, Jones, Churchill, Swiuimou and Cook, all of whom '. are now in Jail, with himself, were tbe men. 1 said, 1 don't know how lean getaway. My wife always wants to kuow where 1 am. He replied, My wife suspects some thing, but does not know what. I said, I don't like the idea of killing him. He replied, You need not shoot him; 1 only want you to stand guard. W« will have one guard at the granary, one at tbe blacksmith shop ami others around. 1 will do the killing. I asked, Where will you meet, at More's? Ho said, No; we will meet at the little slough between my house and Lawton'l, When you reach the place, give a low whistle and you will be answered; then some oue will come to lead you to the place of meeting. 1 asked, What is your plan? He replied, We have ar ranged all that. We have a tur pentine ball to fire tlie bam and everything fixed. About two days before the murder I had an errand to Churchill's uud after doing my errand Churchill said, To-morrow night we are going to kill More. We have meu now who will not back out. Have you a gnu? I an owered, Yes, hut no ammunition. Churchill then drew from his pocket five buck-shot and offered them to me, saying that powder would be furnished at tlie place of mealing. He said he had been watching the road to More's house all day to see who went there, and the road from Lawton's had also been watched. Shortly after the murder 1 was irrigating my grain, when Sprague came along and, after some conversation, he said, As you may be expecting a reward in case you tell anything leading to my arrest, I came to tell you that the men who could kill More will kill anybody that betrays them. 1 told him 1 understood that and he went away. Churchill, also, afterwards, warned me to keep still about the murder, mak ing the samo threats. Crawford, who worked for me, told me thai he thought I was iv danger of my life. The cross examination elicited nothing new. Hickerson, the dying witness, was then examined at his room ut the hotel, but nothing in addition to his previous statements was dis closed. Tlie Court then adjourned until half past eight o'clock ou Monday morning. Hickerson now states that he never disclosed the matter before because his testimo ny, unsupported, would not have beeu sufficient to eonyicti Sail Fruuclaco Nona. San Francisco, April 6.—Judges Morrison, Daingerlield and Dwi nelle met this afternoon and ap pointed as the new Board of Police Commissioners Richard P. Ham mond, of the Central Pacific Rail road Company, Win. Alvord, of tbe Bank of California, and Robert J. Tobin, of the Hiheruia Hank.

The examination of witnesses iv the case of the raised street con tracts was continued to day by tlie Finauee Committee of tbe Board of Supervisors. Among tho wit nesses examined were contractors, experts, clerks, deputies and other employes of the office of Superin tendent of Streets. The principal point adduced to-day was that one Bunting, who had been a clerk un der Hogan, the late Superintend ent, was at one time found to bo a defaulter, but he was allowed to serve out his term, his son-in-law making good the deficits. Bunting is wanted as a witness, but lias not yet been found. The Hayes case, in connection with tbe Piatt's Hall meeting, was continued before the Police Court this afternoon. Kearuoy was put on the stand, but nothing of inter est was elicited. Latest Eastern News. llolllduy ut lVu!»:iluiriou.
