WEDNESDAY MAY 1, 1878. Herald Steam Printing House. Tlie Herald Steam Printing House Is aot surpassed by any Job Printing office on the PactOc Coast, outside of San Fran olaoo. In facilities for doing Job work Low prices, good work and expedition may be relied upon at this office. The conundrum, •' Are we going to have another European war?" la growing in interest day by day. After having expended hundreds of thousands of lives and millions of money in the Turkish war, It Is really not unreasonable that Rus- Bia should aim to obtain an equiv alent. War, or a back-down of one of the powers to the bitter con trovery, would seem to be inevita ble; aud yet we cannot think, iv view of her history during tbe past forty years, that Eng land means war. Already her shipping interests are begiuning to suffer by the multiplied rumors of war, and a continuance of the present unsettled state of tilings for many months would undoubtedly throw much of the commerce of the world out of British into American bottoms. The suspense is mortally exhausting to Ruseia, also, and as il is just as impossible to extract a moneyed indemnity from Turkey as it would be to ex tract blood from a turnip, Russia will feel for years the pecuniary sacrifices of tbe late war, even though a newoneshould be averted. The Mussulman insurrection in tlie Balkan mountains shows that there is still somo vitality left In the Turkish Empire. Tho govern ment of Turkey is undoubtedly an imbecile one, but there is still an Immense amount of fighting ma terial at the Sultan's command. Altogether there are about one hundred aud fifty millions of Mus sulmen, and should England enter into the war against Russia no doubt tho moral and material weight of this vast multitude would be at her beck. The Mo hammedan population of India alone is quite large, and the native troops which have been embarked from India for the Mediterranean by tbe British government are re ported to be full of enthusiasm. The Sepoy under European officers makes a most gallant soldier, and it will be a novel tiling to see him battling in Southern Europe in support of the aims of a power which has subjugated him. The inspiration of tlie Constitu tional Convention campaign in Los Angeles county should be a desire, in all parties, to send our very best men to that body. If the Work iugmcn shall prove to have the strength claimed for them by per sons whom we regard as not well informed as to tlie political status of this couuty, by all means let them be ambitious to have them selves represented by men of their order who will do credit to the new organization and who could be trusted to honestly represent Los Angelea county. The same as to the Republican party. We have never disguised our belief that tbe Democratic party will elect their candidates to the Constitutional Convention from this county, if they nominate good men. We should bend all our efforts to secur-1 hit; from Ihe mass of (he Los An geles Democracy Ihe very ablest, most reliable and representative men as our candidate* in v struggle which will demonstrate whether or no this is still the banner Demo cratic couuty. We believe it is, but we do not believe in tak ing a single chance. We concede the fact that we cannot elect poor men—we ueo the word poor, of course, iv the sense of inferior aud uufit men, for we hope that rich men will bo in as large a minority In the Constitutional Convention as they are in every day life. But the Democratic party has an abundance uf good material; and, if it chooses to put them in the front of the light, it will undoubt edly win. The Kearneyites in Sau Frau cisco ure doing some fine caterwaul ing. Tbo proceedings of their State Central Committee, which met in San Fraucisco Saturday night, are a tine model for any de liberative body. Recriminations of the lowest and fiossest kind, clinching of fists, giving tbe lie, and other polite and parliamentary doings, characterize 1 the exercises. A f eud of (lie most violent descrip tion has already broken out amongst these worthies, and they will experience Iho truth of the scriptural aphorism, so often em ployed by Abraham Lincoln, that a house divided against itself cauuot stand. A more than Cnralcan ven detta is f*ii ly underway amongst the Kearney leaders, and we think no well disposed man, whether be longing to the woikingelass or not, can read the details of this squab ble without a feeling of the most profound disgust. It is pleasant to know that the wheat crop ot Los Angeles county this seasou will be beyond expecta tions. Eight hundred thousaud bushels is by no means an extreme estimate. We shall uot only raise tbe wheat, but manufacture it into flour. We shall have not only flour tor our own consumption, but forexport. It is a fact not gener ally understood that the San Fer nando valley wheat of Los Angeles county, and that grown in the Cajon valley, in San Diego county, make the very best flour known on the American continent. The area at present sown in wheat in this county is probably not over one tenth of that which will be planted iv thiscereal ten years from now. The old superstition about "rust" has been pretty well exploded. There are large areas, running up to the neighborhood of three or four hundred thousand acres, which will yield bountiful wheat crops six years out of seven. The sev enth year of drouth is amply com pensated for by tho fact that the average yield of wheat to the acre in this couuty is two or three times that of Pennsylvania and Ohio. As we have ready access to the ocean; and, consequently, to all the ports of the world, we com mand very much more satisfactory prices than the farmers of the Middle States. Hun dreds of our farmers to day waste fertile acres on barley which would yield magnificent wheat crops, thus assuring a handsome money return for their labor. We will shortly begin to act upon truths which we already dimly understand. AJ.i. the conditions of legitimate commerce will exist in Los Ange les county this year. We shall have such an abundance of pro ducts of various kinds that there will be a valid excuse for the ap pearance at our ports of quite a number of vessels. We cannot with truth say that this has been the case heretofore. While we sent three ship loads of Los Ange les wheat to Liverpool year before last that was the initial shipment, and it was succeeded by a year of drouth which made the raising of wheat without irrigation an im possibility. Tlie Messrs. Lauker shim & Van Nuys did not com mand faoililiis for irrigating their Sau Fernando ranch, so that they were obliged to rest until the pres ent year. We shall, in all proba bility, have a million sacks of bar ley for export this year. Canadian aud California barley will drive all other barleys out of the market, on account of its superiority, and it is conceded that the California staple is much tho superior of tlie two. While we shall haven very con siderable demand for our barley from Arizona this year, we ought to be able to send it to market by water. Tho experiment of five or six ship loads of Los Angeles bai ley, sent to New York and Boston, would undoubtedly be very profita ble to the parties who should de velop the needed enterprise. Tiie cargoes would command a very high pi ice. Wu learn from every band a fact which Is confirmed by our Spadra correspondent, viz , that tiie late rains have done very little damage to tlie crops. We have for years had occasion to remark the dispo sition of California farmers to grumble at being visited by too much and too little rain. Last year the drouth was tlie farmer's bete noir, although the result proved that our Los Ange les crops, outside of the mesa lands, were abundant, notwithstanding the scant rainfall, and commanded exceptionally high prices. This year the com plaints have been of too much rain. The fact is that it takes a bailey field but a very short time, with bright, sunshiny weather, to get on its feet after having been "lodged." The barley crop in this couuty will bo certainly twice us large as in any period of our his tory. Some weeks ago we dwelt upon the fact that the Messrs. Hsllman & Haas, of this city, had taken advantage of the suspension of du ties upon produce entering the Northern States of Mexico to ship grain and goods to that section. This euterprisiug firm are keeping up their .shipments, and we hope to see their operations extended and their example Imitated. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

London, April 30th.—Tbe Mark Lake Express says: The general tendency of our agricultural report is distinctly satisfactory as regards tho wheat and spring coin crops, and it is very seldom that advices from the rural districts as to the weather, work and crops record so few complaints as at present. Bus iness has been necessarily restrict ed in Maik Lane, owing to the Easter holidays. The supply of English wheat has beon light and prices have undergono little or no chatig?, either in London or the provinces, aud a quiet but steady tone prevailed. Witli political af fairs still unsettled, the holders of foreign wheat have been content to satisfy the retail demand. The exports for the past week amounted to only 2Sooquarters, against 9,000 und 13,800 respectively in the two preceding weeks, from wliif/h it may be seen that the requirements of tbe continent are for tlie present supplied. This important element of strength being wanting, holders had tlie ordinary consumptive want 3of the country to fall back upon, which do not appear to be large, although there has been sufficient business to prevent prices receding to any quotable ex tent. Millers, generally speak ing, hold fair stock. America has furnished tlie bulk of the im ports of wheat into London which, however.have been quite moderate. With fair arrivals at the ports, the calls for floating cargo trade for wheat ruled firm. Prices advanced fully ouo shilling, apparently ow ing to the political uneasiness, but business was restricted owing to the holidays. Maize advanced six pence. Barley steady.
