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
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
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
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
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.

Omaha, April 30th.—One of the
most important court martials
since tho closo of the war will be
held in this city to-morrow for the
trial of lien. A. V. Kautz, recently
commanding the Department of
Arizona. The principal charge
ngaiust the defendant is that lie
violated the army regulation for
bidding an officer writing or furn
ishing for publication any matter
regnrding military movements, etc.
Iv this case Qen. Kautz published
a pamphlet review of Judge Advo
cate Genenl Dunn's opinion of
Kautz's official action In the case
of Captain Campbell, of the Fifth
Cavalry, who was sentenced to dis
missal, but whose sentence was set
aside in Washington. Tho pam
phlet was circulated privately in
the army. Tho trial is ail iacting
cousiderab'e attention, especially
in military circles both on accouut
of tlie high rank of tlie officers
composing the court and by
reason of tho peculiar nature
of the charges against the defend
ant. It is tlie first time iv the his
tory of the country iv which the
question lias arisen as to whether
an officer lias the right to impugn
the motives of his superior, as ex
pressed in official papers. The fol

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.
