Herald Steam Printing House. The Herald Steam Printing House is not surpassed by any Job Printing office on tbe Pacific Coast, outside of San Fran claoo, Vn facilities for doing Job work Low prices, good work and expedition nay be relied upou at this office. The day is coming when Los Angeles will score a fine record as ' a wheat growing county. When ( the Messrs. Lankersbim & Van , Nuys began t > raise their magnifi cent crops in the San Fernando valley their experiment was looked upou as a very doubtful experi ment, although wheat had always been raised in small quantities iv tbat section. This wheat is the very best in the State. (Mr. Isaac Lankei'shim, whose judgment can not be surpassed in such matters, has informed us that the extensive tracts of coast land in this county are admirably adapted to tbe growth of wheat. The danger from rust is very grossly exaggerated; aud, even when there is rust to some extent it by no moans fol lows that a merchantable article cannot be raised. A gentleman thoroughly conversant with wheat culture told us yesterday that tbe whole belt of country, stretchiug from Santa Monioa to below Santa Ana, a distance ef between fifty and sixty miles, and to a width of probably ten miles, would, in bis opinion, yield as fine wheat as any in the world. Wherever the wind blows strongly enough from the ocean to shake tbe fog and dew from the grain before tbe sun at tains its maximum heat, wheat will flourish and tbe danger of rust Is very slight. We should like to see it demonstrated that a body of laud containing easily three or four thousand acres iv this county, iv addition to the San Fernando val ley, is fine wheat land. No wheat ever looked more promising than the fields about Wilmingtou do now. There is every reasou to ex pect an abundant yield, of unsur passed quality. A thing not generally known is that many of the finest wheat re gions of the State at first would uot grow wheat. There are extensive tracts about Russian river which now never fail of a bountiful crop of this cereal which, until the vir gin raukness had been worked from the soil, never returned the seed. Thousands of acres of Los Angeles land which have heretofore been devoted to bailey und cum would undoubtedly rake excellent wheat, with, of course, an occasional year of failure. The experience of tlie Messrs. Lankeishim & Van Nuys has been that they can rely upou a wheat crop in the Sau Fernando valley six years out of seven, altogether without irrigation. Our occasional drouths are v drawback, but every section of tlie country has its draw backs. Portions of the State of New York suffered last year as se vere a drouth as California. The very sources of tbe Crototi water supply were menaced. Many of the farmer* had not only to sub mit to tlie loss of their crops but they were put to it to obtain water for domestic purposes. Gaugs of hundreds of armed meu frequently came into collision iv contests for the waters of certain little lakelets tributary t» the Hudson. We can take our drouths every six or seven years and make money farming if we shall only raise wheat instead of barley. Wheat always com mands a remunerative market, while the consumption of barley is mainly local. 'The large crop of wheat of the present year, and the success which lias attended its growtli In different sections of the couuty, will doubtless lead to its more general introduction. The howl that is going up in the Republican party because it is pro posed to probe Ihe Louisiana and Florida rottenness shows how dearly many of the members of that organization are attached to fraud. Their cunuiug attempts to divert this imperative investiga tion to other topics shows how averse Republican* are to have light poured upon what was con fessedly an infamous chapter in our history. Th* State of Maryland complains thut full effect lias not been given to tier electoral vote. Two of the members of tbe Florida Returning Board have formally and sale-only confessed that a State which they returned for Hayes really cast its vote for Mr. Tiideu. That is tlie question and it cannot be obscured, if, as aresultofthe investigation, Mr. Tilden should replace Mr. Hayes in tlie Presi dency we are perfectly willing, should 'Massachusetts, or any other Republican Stale, complain by a formal legislative net iliat full effct li.' not beeu given t> her vote, (specially should two members ef a Democratic Return ing Board (Democrats don't in dulge in this machinery of fraud) confess to having been influenced by friend* of Mr. 'Tilden to perjure themselves, that au exhaustive iu vesligatiou should be had. The Republican |arly feels that It dare uot face the inquiry; and, conee qu*ylly, it squirms, and wriggles and filibusters. Our chief auxiety It confined to having the responsi bility for tlie fraudulent occupancy of the White House by Hayes ei ther a accond time assumed or a first time repudiated by the Republican party. We desire to see the Issue raised with a directness and emphasis which will leave no room for doubt. The Democracy say to the Republican party, "Under which King, Bezouiun?" It desires to kuow whether its opponent, when the heal of the combat is over, be lieves in louded dice and In every species of moral chicane. The lie publican party is on its trial before the couutry as tho "God and Mor ality aud Decency" party. There isa general desire to kuow wheth er or uo it is the most dissembling and hypocritical organization whose history lias been recorded in political annals. Th* determined fight which is being made in that party to defeat an inquiry into the champion fraud of tlie nge leads us to fear that, with all its professions of love of liberty, it is really abso lutist and monarchical in its in stincts; aud that, with all its as sumption of superior virtue, it hasn't got the honesty of Ihe com mon run of better' on the turn of a card. Two exquisite asses named Eu gene Hal* and George C. GorhaiH, claimiog to represent the National Republican Congressional Com mittee, are out in a silly pronuuol amiento founded on tbe patriotic determination of the Democratic House of Representatives to inves tigate tlie Florida and Louisiana frauds. Thera is a dta! of " fe, 11, fo, fum" eloquence 111 this docu ment. It carries with it the flavor ef the mock heroic, such as crops out in the burlesque of La Belle Helene. The day for cowardly bullying on the strength of numer ical superiority has passed for tlie Republican parly, and it lias passed for the simple reasou that the Democracy not only control more Stales than their adversaries, but a half million more votes be sides. Perhaps if little Eugene Hale and our own preciousQorbam resort to civil strife they will Bod that they have made much such a mistake as a portion of the Demo cratic leaders made In 1861. Tlie Democratic party is not to be de terred from following iv tlie path of duty by vaporing threats. Tbe whole Republican management of the last campaign was founded upon the undisguised assumption that Democrats had no rigliis which Republican* were bound to respect. Campaign* conducted on similar principle*, would make it forever impossible for any but Re publicans to have tlieir votes counted in tlie election of a Presi dent of Ihe L'ni'ed .Stole*. Nothing could possibly so much contribute ta exalting tbe dignity of tlie American people a* to have it made apparent to Iho world that the national conscience was restive under fraud, and that our Congress and Courts always stooi-l ready to redress w roug. Whatever is done will lie done peacefully, unless the Republican party contains more ninnies of the Hale-Qorham order than we think it does. We again reiterate our belief that, while it by ne mean* follows tbat Hayes will be removed as the result of a Congressional investigation, it is exceedingly probable that he may be. That lie ought to be, with such developments as tho confes sions of McLin and Dennis, no reasonable man, even though be doubted before, can doubt longer. '•Where are we now?" This is the inquiry that is wrung from us as we contemplate tlie muddle into which the question of nominating delegates at large to the Constitu tional Convention has been thrown. The oue party is as deep iv the mud as tbe other is in Iho mire. Unless some plan la adopted, and tiiat soon, tlie Workingmen will be the only organization that will have a regular ticket in tho field for delegates at large. In view of the fact that these gentlemen will have to be voted for by the whole people of tlie State, very little time is to be lost. The non-purtizan Sac ramento Convention called for May 22d will assemble Wednesday, and wo have not yet heard of a single man in either party who proposes to attend it as a repre sentative of Los Angeles couniy.

Tlie uamo of Henry George excited considerable oppo sition. Kearney, after a pretace to tlie effect that party must have uo friends, but must select candidates with the solo view to tlieir capac ity aud integrity, placed In nomin ation Col. Richard J. Htnton, of tlie daily Pu*f. Kearney himself wm nominated but declined. A committee was appointed to wait on Registrar Kaplan and demand that the party be represented In appointing officers of election. The Committee on Constitution re ported. Tlie Constitution was read aud adopted. Aside from tlio nota tion of organization, it provides for persons joining clubs to pledge themselves to uphold the princi ples of the party; that uo money shall bo use! lv elections, except for tiie purpose of paying necessary expenses of printing, etc ; nomi nees to oilice must pledge them : selves to resign wheu called upon to do so. Tlie country members adopted a resolutiou thanking tlie city mem • beis for courtesies extended and i were repaid with a round of cheers. The Chronicle, Post, Open Letter and Abend Post were thanked for their reports of the meeting. Tbe motion to include all city papers . created confusion and was voted : down. Adjourned till 2:00 P.

After considerable di-eus-ion the resolution was adopted with ap plause, by a unanimous vote, after ; the scruples of one member, re garding affiliation with outside or ganizations bud been satisfied. ' The name of Judge Butts as a del* 1 legate to tlie Constitutional Con i veutiou from the Second Congres i sioual Distiict and that of J. M.

New Youk, May 18.—The lime*, commenting on the action of tlie House yesterday, says: This whole business tf investigation is the work of a handful of men individ ually unimportant, but able to use tho machinery of the caucus so as to commit tbe party iv spite of tlie betteijudgnieut of a majority of its members. Tho resolution does not oxpress the mature result of a con ference representing tlie party as a whole. It merely tells the purpose of a faction of which Tiideti is the guiding spirit ami its adoption by the party in Congress indicates how abjectly tbe member! hold the c incus screw. The Herald says: This great blunder af the Democrats, the Re publicans are prompt to seize upou to tbeir own advantage as will be seen by the Republican address which \ i Issued on the heels of the passage of tho Democratic resolu tion against the theory of fraud. They raise the cry of revolution and tbey will uuite tlie whole North once more iv tlieir support. Tlie Tribune regards the move ment as revolutionary and says the Democratic resolution is not only indecent and knavish, It is an at [ tempt to get up a new rebellion agalust lawful authority. The World regards the Rspublt ' can adores* as unwise and wild. It tends to excite the very clamor of confusion which those who thus misrepresent the action of the Dem ocratic majority pretend to dep recate. The iS'ii/i has uo editorial but prints a figurehead with tbo word "Fraud" on the forehead, with the following title: "The portraltas de lineated by Charles Francis Adams of the man who yesterday saw a section of tho Day of Judgment—a 1 person who mint forever carry upon his brow the stamp of fraud, Bret triumphant lv American his | tory.

Washington, May 18tb.—Ad hering to last night's determina tion, the Republican members of the House to day refrained from ottering any resolution to extend the field for Investigation by Pot ter's committee, and Hinton and other prominent Democrats, who had intended to move its extensiou jto Oregon and South Carolina in order to make a show of impartial ity were persuaded by party friends to abandon their purpose, at least for tlie preseut.
