We bad the honor, in company
With the Messrs. Djidesheimer und

tbe California bonanza on that day.
If our memory serves us rightly,
we attained the California by some
remlfiuatioti of the same level
which admitted ue to the famous
•ram-out of th? Consolidated Vir
ginia. The pick had just struck
lute the California B nimz t, prov
lag the correctness of tlie theory
that (be Consolid tied Virginia de
posit extended to its neighbor. We
•hail never forget the iuteutness
with which Hit aperture was
scrutinized by Deidesheimer, lamp
ia hand. It excited such an en
thusiasm In him that he emerged
Irom our tour witli the conviction
tbat both Consolidated Virginia
aad California would go to $1,500 a
chare. It was that conviction only
which prevented his becoming a
very heavy millionaire. He held
too long, waiting for the $1,500
which never came.
Having disposed of our reminis
eenoe, weshall proceed to the rs
tsetlonx, making them tolerably
brief. It bas been tbe fortune of
Ihe editor of tbis paper to have
achieved clever results in tlm pro
phetical Hue, notably with regard
te she Texts Pacific, the rainfall
mat year, sud several other mai
lers. The prophecy we pride our
eaives most ou, however, is that
which waa evoked by Pi of. Gun
■lag's lecture on the Comstock
leafct, la Union Hall, in this city,
mat Spring. Tbs Professor, with
SjMtaeienllflo sights, planted him-
MNf ea the xmrpoaiUon that the
lode waa- pinching out and was
•beat exhausted We immediately
haaarded the opinion iv this jour
awl that,since a scientific man had i
fa leal Dated agaiust il, the Com- <
ajsah lode was certain to make a
.smasher of striking new develop
aWsts, and advistd tlie Profeeart '
'4MN tO Mil Ophlr short on the .
■traagth of bis college-bred pre- i
visions, though Ophlr bad then ;
sagged back from $47 to $27. We
spoke wiser than we knew, though
we felt certain that our prediction
would be verified.
As tbe cose stands to-day a'niau
ia obliged to veil bis eyes at the
possibilities of the Comstock lode.
From every quarter of it we hear
intimations of new developments.
From the Alta and Justice iv the
Devil's Gate to Overman lv the
extreme nf Hold Hill; from the old
time favorites, Belcher ami Crown
Point, to Bullion aud Chollar Po
tosi; from Julia on the center to
tbe "water mines," Hale 4 Nor
cross, Oould & Curry aud Savage,
and to the extreme "north end,"
including Utah and Sietra Nevada,
which were not, the other day,
thought to be worth a b.uibee,
come stories of new bonanzas.
Nor Is that all. Midway between
Hale & Norcross aud Sierra Ne
vada stand the two famous bo
nanzas, Consolidated Virginia and
California. We hear the story to - _
day of more new developments
from these two mines than from all
the other mines on the Comstock
put together. When the "bonauza"
in the Consolidated Virginia was
exciting tho whole mining world,
leading Mr. Sharon to value it, on
mathematical aud mining princi
ples, at $300,000,000, it was only de
veloped to the 1,551) level, with a
winze retching down to the 1,650
level. Now the weekly mining
letters advise m that tlie winze in
the Consolidated Virginia below
the 1,750 level ia in eplendld ore for
a depth of 92 feet, with a promise
of continuance. The winzj which
is being sunk below the 1,850 level
Is iv ore 38 feet—that Is, just a 9 far
as it lias gone. Other startling de
velopments are reported from the
Consolidated Virginia, which
make Its status to-day even more
promising than when its shares
went to $780, which would be
equivalent to $156 for the subdi
vided shares of five to one.
What of tbe future? It really
seems to us as if San Fraucisco,
which owns Nevada body, boots
aud breeches, was destined to be,
iv hard c«in, the richest city iv
the world and the center of lhe
money exchanges of the glob?.
We should not be surprised to see
the treasure output of Nevada
aloue rise, duriug the next twelve
month, to one hundred millions of
dollars. When all that mouey
pours Into San Francisco sorno of
its citizens will rus'i to our orange

That is to say, us long as these
valiant champions of protection
get their price for certain diminu

aphorism with Sir Robert Walpolo
that "every man has his price."
This Ia a detestable aphorism
which we repudiate. But it applies
to steamship men and to —well,

Washington, Sept. 23.—Cohen
made no attempt to-day to march
his mob. Bimms, lhe negro ar
rested on Saturday lor striking an
officer during the riot, was before
the Police Court 10-duy. Judge
Snell in giving bis decisoc said be
held that Cohen had excited the
the riot among deluded and igno
rant classes, which, unless checked,
might lead to serious results.
While Cohen worked up litis sort
of thing, he wits (harp enough (o
keep out of thn way of the law and
his followers became victims. All
meetings and processious similar
to those held by Cohen were riot
ous and distantly; the property
and lives of the people were endan
gered and should death result from
any of these proceedings, each fol
lower of Cohen would be answera
ole for homicide. It should be
stopped. The workingmen could
gain nothing. He coucluded by
saying that tbe accused was oue
of Cohen's victims who had
become worked into a feeling of
riot because of his teachings and
was somewhat excusable. He
would ouly flue him $10 or In de
fault thirty days in jail. Tlie line
was paid by Cohen. Cohen called
on the Superintendent of Police
this morning to inquire if he could
hold a meeting to-night at the
City Hull. The Superintendent in
formed him that he had uo uuthot
ity to give him permission, as the
City Hall was under the charge of
lite United States Marshal. While
Cohen was talking with the Super
intendent an order came from the
District Commissioners directing
thu Superintendent not to allow
any more disorderly demonstra
tions anywhere. Orders were
promptly issued aud tlie police arc
dispelling crowds wherever found.

$1,013,757 consisted of premiums

THE .JT STORE,
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3d, 1878.
We take pleasure in announcing that our direct shipment
of JAPAN TEAS from our agents at YOKOHAMA
are now on hand, cx-stcaraship "CHINA." These TEAS
(as per our instructions) have been carefully selected in the
most favorably known Tea Districts of Japan, especially
for our trade. The tiring was done under the personal
supervision of our agent, who has been instructed to see
that NO COLORING MATTER was used in the prepa
ration of these Teas. No effort has been spared, and we
feel safe in asserting that these are the Finest Teas ever
offered in this market.
We shall receive shipments monthly, and so ensure a
constant supply of Fresh Teas, which in every instance
will be fully up to the excellence of this lot for PURITY
and FLAVOR. In order to protect consumers we have
adopted the annexed *
which will be found on all our high-grade Teas. Re
ceiving our Teas direct from tlie producer, our customers
ire saved the profits heretofore made first by the importer
md then by the jobber. We are thus enabled to sell Fine
Teas at prices which have been considered low for an or
dinary article. The public are cordially invited to in
spect this shipment, among which will be found some very
curiously prepared Tea known as the k 'PIN LEAF," a
Tea which is rarely allowed to leave Japan.
We beg to call the attention of the trade to this invoice,
as liberal inducements will be offered.
Sample Packages Free to Any Address. .
