TUESDAY MAY 28, 1878. Herald Steam Printing House. Tbe Herald Steam Printing House Is not surpassed by auy Job Printing offlce on tbo l'acltlc Coast, outside ol Han Fran olaeo, Iv facilities (or doing Job work bow prices, good work and expedition may be relied upon at this offlce. Lamentable Look of Liberality 'Without iv tbe slightest degree desiring to overrate theclaim9 of California, we nevertheless think that no equal section of the earth's surface could have made % finer display, of natural products, at the Paris Exposition, than our own State. No Callfornian can remem ber without shame tbe pitiful ex hibit made by tbis State at tbe Centennial. Californium are gen erally credited with being tbe most liberal people on the globe. For our soant population we have more millionaires than any other sec tion either of this continent, Ku rope or Asia. Though San Fran cisco is ouly, at tbe best, but thirty years old, she already has citizens who rival tbe Medici and Fuggers or old, and the Roth schilds, Hopes and Coutteses, of the modern world. Why our por tion of tbe exhibition at the Cen tennial should have been neglected is a mystery to us. There should have been liberality enough amongst C'alifornlans—the sup posed neplus ultra of liberality— to have seen to it, whether the State did Its duty or not, that we were properly represented at Phil adelphia. And now comes tbe dis tressing intelligence that our fat is likely to fall into the fire at tbe Paris Exposition. Tbe California collection is said to be a very fine one, especially iv all ranges of minerals. To say nothing of tbe display we could make in gold and silver, nearly every min eral valuable in commerce is pro duced somewhere within tbe am ple borders of our State. Tin mines are even rarer titan mines of tbe precious metals; aud, in Southern California, wo have tin mines. From cinnabar to coal we could furnish splendid specimens. The fact is that it would not have been difficult for vi lo have the most in teresting exhibit, both in range, variety aud perfectiou of natural products, made at the Exposition Universelle. Now conies the disa greeable intelligence that our ex hibit will be likely to sulfer from lack of accommodations in the American department. Commis sioner McCormick has, altogether, hut $15,000 at his disposal. Why could not our mining millionaires have set apart a portion of the pro coeds of a single "deal" ou Cali fornia street to erecting an unique aud handsome California depart ment of tho Paris Exposition? One hundred thousand dollars, judi ciously expended, would have ac complished wonders. California is not only one of the States of the American Union, but she is an em pire in herself. She can produce, in time, as much wine as France, as much wheat as the Kingdom of Oreat Britain and Ireland, as much corn as the Nile valley and as much gold and silver as the ancient mines of Ophir and of Mexico and Peru. It would uot, of course, be expected that our infant State should make a notable display iv manufactures, but we should therefore be the more anxious to put our best foot forward iv the lines iv which we excel. It would redound far more to the houor of California that money should be expended in this way than in those foolish aud un checked personal outlays which are making tbo name of Califor nian in Europe synonymous with Ihe nouveau] riche who for ages, in that storied continent, has excited the contempt of the old time no bility. Tue Sau Francisco Call occa sionally utters a sentiment notable for Us masculine energy. The other day it acquitted itself of the hazardous utterance that the Dem ocratic party, except f.>r tho Potter Investigation, had a chance of elect ing the next President of the Uni ted Stato?. "A clianco" is au in definite phrase. It is oue thing in ten thousand or in oue hundred thousand. It may represent a per ceulage so small as to necessitate the use of whole rows of decimals. The Call has not charged its read ers anything tor the expression of thii b ild aud luminous sentiment, and it ia not probable that they would have paid tuuoh ior it if it had. Whatever success the Dem ocratic party may achieve In the future will be perfectly Independ ent of tbe CaM, and in spite of it. The Repo 1 ' lean party, in the next Presidential campaign, will raise by far the largest campaign fund of auy of the contesting organiza tions. That fact will at once de termine where the Call will be found. We (liink the Democratic party lias nut ouly a chance but decided chances for sucoess iv tlie next Presidential election, the Call aud other parisitic j lurnals to the contrary notwithstanding. If a fearless investigation iuto the most notable and anti-republican frauds on record will kill the Democratic party we desire to see It die in the last ditch, nuil hope the distance it is from that last ditch may be measured by an ell. When tbe Dsmocratio House of Representa tives hears Ihe screams and curses of its opponents ring out most loudly v may be sure that it Is upon tbe right track. A man never yells so fiercely as wheu his corns are trodden upon. Iv all that concerns the last Presidential election the Democratic party can well say, "let the galled Jade wince, our wither* are unwrung." Tbe American people desire that all the light possible to be cast upon tbem shall be thrown upon tlie Presidential frauds, even though it should he that of a calcium. From Judge Vanable, who has capital opportunities for form ing a correct judgment, we learn that tbe crops in Ihe Los Nlctos and Compton districts never looked better than now. Especially is this true of Ihe wheat, which is in an absolutely perfect slate of for wardness. Iv these two districts there are about thirty-five hundred acres of wheat. It includes the sectiou tribulary to Los Nietos and extending from Compton to Wilmington. The wheat crop of the San Fernando valley also never looked better. From no section of the county have we heard a word that speaks of danger to the wheat crop. A 9 there are from tweuty three to twenty-five thousand acres planted in this cereal, this fact speaks well for the balance of trade in this seotion this fall. From ssven hundred thousand to a mil lion bushels of wheat may be looked for. Judge Veuable also assures us lhat the bailey is in capital order. Take it for all in all, we are justified in expecting a speedy rjturn to prosperity lv Los Augeles county, although the ab sorption of the farmer in the labors of harvesting may for the moment make matters seem a little dull In the city. The suggestion of the name of the editor of the Express for dele gate to the Constitutional Conven tion from this district seems to evoke an unanimity of sentiment from the press of this sectiou which the San Jos6 Convention will doubtless heed. The last num ber ofthe Ventura Sir/nal says: Mr. J. J. Ayers, of the Los Au geles Express, is prominently spoken of as a candidate fir dele gate to the Constitutional Conven tion. No man stands higher among his fellow journalists than Mr. Ayers. He is a true man and we hope he may be chosen as a del egate. He is houest uud hates fraud and corruption and if sent will do good service for tho State of which he has so long been a val uable and honored citizen. The last number of the Coltou Semi-Tropic adds: Col. James J. Ayers, of tho Los Angeles Express, is talked of as a candidate for the Constitutional Convention. Whilo the Colonel is not thoroughly liberal in all his views, we believe he would make a good man for that place, aud Los Angeles will do herself honor if she is represented by so worthy a man. No party ever made more of a ninny of itself than the Republi can in its opposition to the Potter investigation, it played its game "jow down," aud every move in the House of Representatives from the Republican side was that of political shysters. It is pleasant to know that our opponents were met with an unrivaled skill and determination by the Democratic leaders, and were beaten at every point. Tho Democratic party is giving every indication of having recovered its old-time vigor and purpose. This is a pleasant augury of its approaching undisputed su premacy. The latest from New York i 9 that Mrs. Tilton is in the coudition in which "ladies wish to be who love their lords." Precisely what light this throws upon the Beecher scandal we fail to see. Thero is a statule of limitation established hy nature as well as by legislative bodies. The Pennsylvania Republican Convention utterly ignored Hayes and declined to condemn the Pot ter investigation. Tho members of lhat Convention are not nearly so wise as some of our California cross-roads politicians, who talk about "loyalty" and "revolution." Three Irishmen, who had dug a ditch for four dollars, were quite at a loss to know how to divide tlie pay "aqually." But one of the number had been to school, and reached division in arithmetic, so it was left to him. Hediditat once, saying: "It's easy enough. Sure, there's two for you two, and two forme, too." The two received their portion with a greatly in creased respect for the advantages which learning gives to a man. The infant class of a Sunday school on Church street, New York, were being drilled by the good teacher on I lie early life of the Saviour. "Johnny, can ynu tell me where Christ was bom?" said she. " Easton, ma'am," replied the youth. "Why, no, Johnny," said tlie amazed youug lady, "Christ was born in Bethlehem." "Well," said Johnny, " I knew it was some place on the Lehigh Valley road." "Have you got the lesson to day?" asked a Sunday school teach er of a pupil whose bead was band anged up uudera couple of Inches of flannel. "No, ma'rm." "Have you got your catechism with you?" asked the teacher. "No, ma'am." "Have you got anything?" again asked tbe teacher, getting a little impatient. "Yeth, ma'am, was tbe timid reply. "What is il?" "The mumptb, ma'am." A little boy in a Sioux City Sun day school put a poser to his teacher. The lady was telling her class how God punished the Egyptians hy causing the first born in each household to be slain. The little boy listened attentively, aud at the proper interval mildly inquired: "What would God have done if there had been twins?" LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. pTSwelal to tlie Herald l.j Hie Western Dillon Company.) Pacific Coast News. CitlnveiNii Di'legatea. San Andreas, May 27th.—J. B.

Wilson has sued Recorder Stuart M.Taylor, asking damages in the sum of $3,000. The ground of suit isthatJuo. J. Cunningham, Tay lor's agent, made a written prom ise to the "Colored Citlzeus' Equal Rights League," before tbe last election, that in consideration of their votes, If elected, he would appoint a colored employ 4. The League subsequently recommended Wilson for appointment, but Taylor refused to give him a position; hence the suit. Taylor this after noon comes out in a card saying that he never authorized Cunning ham to make such a con tract, and never spoke to him about it before the election, but discountenanced all such proceedings. Cunningham also publishes a card stating that Tay lor was not coguizant of his action aud had subsequently deuounced it. W. P. Merilman, who was cog nizant of the circumstances, cor roborates Cunningham's Mate ment. WcrbluuuieiCa Nomls.alltMie.

Washington, May 27.—The vote by which the House to-aay nega tived tbe actiou of tbe Committee of the Whole and restored to the Army Appropriation bill the clause reducing the army to 20,000 men was a surprise to both parties. It resulted from the temporary ab sence of four or live Republicans who had left tbe canitol without pairing, not anticipating thai the hill would be so soon reported to the House for final actiou. An ameudment providing for the trans fer of the Indian management to the War Department, which was adopted aftor a remarkably short discussion, received the votes of nearly all the Democrats, Including Wigginton, and was opposed by all but a half dozen Republicans, Page being oue of the exceptions. The Senate concurrent resolution proposing au adjournment on June 10th, will come up for action hy the House next Wednesday, nud the Democrats intend to caucus on the subject to-morrow ovening. A de teruiiuatiou will probably be reached to again postpone action on the resolution. WaMMMIQaTAI* Washington, May 27.—House.

After a long discussion the amendment was agreed to, 120 to 112. The House in Committee of the Whole ou the Army Appropriation hill, the question being on the amendment offered by Scales to transfer the control of the Indians to the War Department, Soales's amendment was adopted, 113 to 109.

Besides the thirty-nine hale! by barge last Thursday, Fields' train with 7500 pounds aud Saniego's with 10,000 arrived yesterday. Bar nail's train is due here on Tuesday with 40,000 pounds. All three lots are shipped hy Lord & Williams, of Tucson. The contract for supplying the government with barley, at Camp Mohave, has beeu awarded to Jesus Redondo, of Yuma. The grain has been raised by liim at Sau Ysldro, nine miles from Yuma. He also furnishes Yuma Depot with bailey at $1 88 per cwt.; hay at $24 75 per ton; and straw at $19 50 per ton. J. M. Redondo contracts to deliver bran at 54 per cwt. This brau will be made by the flour mill now at San Ysidro. Oh! Yes!! Los Au geles is going to ship grain out here! Lot:!!! of it. Last Saturday night Private Cole, Twelfth Infantry, was shot ou Main street by John Holland, a Sigual Service man, late repair man at Berk's station. The hall passed through Cole's butt, rang ing upward, aud coming out above his groin. The would is severe but Cole will probably recover. Hol land was arrested, but discharged for reasons we did not learn. Later his arrest was ordered by the mili tary authorities, when he weut over to the foit and surrendered himself. Barge No 3 got in on Thursday about noon. She brought dowu 68,800 pounds of galena from Castle Dome, the bulk of which is from the Arkausavv and Pocohou tas mines, aud consigned to Bag ley, McPherson & Pickens, of San Francisco. The rest of it was con signed to Doxtater, the San Fran cisco agent of Mr. D. Neahr. She also brought thirty-nine hales of wool from Ehrenberg and several small lots of merchandise and pro duce. The railroad bridge across the Colorado was inspected ou Wednes day by Col. C. S. Stewart, United States Army Engineer. The steamboat Mohave was hitched up, aud took him down the river through tho draw and back, to Bhow him that the bridge presents no obstruction to navigation of the river. Col. Stewart expressed no opinion, but of course he must have beeu satistied on this point, and will undoubtedly report to that effect. He has been stationed in San Francisco for tho past years, iv charge of United States improvements, fortifications, etc. It was he who let the contract to Johnson and Schuyler for turning the waters of San Diego river into False Bay. He was over there a short time ago, and says the im provement lias proved all that was anticipated. During the past win ter that river was much swollen, and carried into False Bay im mense qnantities of sediment, would otherwise have gone into San Diego harbor, to its great injury. A Badly Seared Editor. (Cincinnati Breakfast Tabic.) An editor was sitting iv his easy chair, huoyant iv mind and heart, with the cairn serenity and blissful tranquility that none but editors know. A shuffling sound at tho door brought him back to earth, and facing nervously about, lie be held a man of deep, determined look, closing the door behind him. With a sickly feeling of foreboding, the editor motioned toward a chair, and gazed upon tbe intruder help less and breathless, resigned to meet the worst. The hand of the man wandered toward his breast pocket. The edi itor's cheek blaucbed and his lips turned blue. Alas! alas! he has guessed aright the mission of the stranger. The old man pulled out a bundle of letters aud papers. Tho head of the editor fell forward upon his breast and his hands dropped list less from the arms of his chair. "My errand is not a pleasant one," said tho visitor speaking slowly. "Thank Heaven!" exclaimed the editor, plucking up courage. "Out with it—suspense is worse than fate." "I have an execution ou your home," continued the uiau, with professional saduess. "That mort gage has been foreclosed." "Hoora! ha! ha! ha!" roared tbe editor, springing up and nearly shaking tho man's arm off. "Heaven ho praised! but. Lord, what a scarce you gave me! Blister my corns, if 1 didu't thiuk you hail a chunk of spring poetry. Drive on! sell tho old shanty—it's a rat-eaten barracks, anyway, and rents are cheap. Ha! ha! what a loatl you have taken oil my mind! Let's have your name—aud down it goes for two years free subscrip tion.
