In facilities for uuitit; .'ol> work. I Vow prises, good work anil expedition r wsar be railed uponi tit this office. In a brief note we referred yes terday to the action of "the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce . la rescinding its original endorse ment of the projected Frauco . American treaty, whose enactment I lata law would have inflicted such • fatal blow upon our growing Cal ifornia wine and brandy Interests. HI would indeed liave proved to be Ih unspeakable calamity if an in ■taieetof suo'a m.ignituJo now, and I whSoh is destined to so expand in Urn course of the next, decade, abould be slaughtered in tbe bouse of its friends, the enormous wealth •f Pranos la due primarily to her ▼Ineyarda. It was these aud the accumulations resulting therefrom that enabled her to pay the Uer ■u Indemnity with such rapidity aud ease. Frauce makes about thirty-five per cent, of all the wine ■tad* on tbe European continent The latest statistics show the product of the French vineyards to be within a triflj of 1,501,000,000 gallons of wine yearly. The graat est wine manufacture of California la a single year was six million gallou*, or about one two hundred •nd fiftieth part of that of France. 'When we consider tli.it it is q jite irascible for us to make, iv time, ns ■such wine in this State us France, WO can get an idea of the ex'cut to I wblcb our present mauufasture I -Bay expand if it is not nipped in i the bud by allowiug the French vlguerons tv dictate our national legislation. Not ouly have we an I immense area iv which the scrape I nay to advantage, but "loTyield of our vineyards U some thing extraordinary. It may be •tated, according tv looatiou, al frem twice to three times that of Prance. In addition, we aru not obliged to resort to expensive manures, to ranew an impover- Ished eoti, as tiiey ara iv that country. There are vineyards in Li* Angeles county now which are one huudrj 1 years oid, and whose , yield is, we have every reason to believe, as priliSj as I When tbe oautury opened. Ail California needs to achieve | success Jn the ni ■nu f ao- I ture or*wrluc& brandies is a lit- I tie fo'teriug care on the p irt of the 1 government and the spread of tej'.i , nlesl kuowledgL'. Kvery d»y li adding to our acquaintance with j tbe best methods of handling out grapes. In conseq lence, we are already miking wines which are becoming q iitv popular lv the East Mr. Dreyfus informed tbe writer that we tire making light wines In California now which will compare favorably wi;h the most I famous light wines of the Rhine. ' We have already passed the first It crude and tentative stage of the I industry, are finding out the grapes I I best adapted to our soli and the If methods winch Will secure us the I happiest results. We are uot lm ■ patient because we are uot already prepared to m-et Frauce in the markets of the world. Our day will come and ooine rapidly. Out m ist creep before one walks and W-lk before one runs. But Con gress should see to it that Ihe goose which is destined to lay such a Tery large golddii egg is not killed ky French intrigue, backed by tbe Viue and brandy importers of New York. Five years more of a judi cious protection and our viguerous Will be able to dispense with ail otter forms of government recog- B tiou save such a* relate to Im : jved methods of collecting the ultrtisl Revenue. We can discern in Republican quarters an uneasy feeling that Uen. Benjamin K. Butler may be Ihe ii, xt U ivernor of Mussachu ■etts. It Is true that the itbulis of tbe el ciion in O ib> anil luiiiuna have demonstr-:e.l the fact that the greenback, pirty ln» nothing like the stiength claimed for it. But Butler has tlie Democratic as well ac the greenback anil National Labor nominations, and he is a tower of strength in himself. The fact that the Herald has been friendly to Butler's candidacy lias b »en commented on adversely in aeveral quarters. We have what we regard as three good, capital reasons fir desiring him to succeed. If ever there has been a supercili ous, Pharisaic sect It has been the Republican parly of Massachusetts Its arrogauce and self-sulliciency have beeu beyond belief. As ■ ar ties stand to day in tbe Bay Slate, an old line Democrat has not a Vestige of a chance, of buccoss. We heartily desire lo see this party de feated in its very pncreant cradle. Iv the second place, Ben Butler has always kept his sympathies io line with the common people, from the earliest days of his career Ma lawyer he would drop a wealthy client to hurry to the aid of v poor operative. We do not regard him •a an angel of light, by any means, but be has always kept to the es ' aentlal Democratic principle that ' tbe muKi stioultl couut for ionic thing io tbe government of tlie Btetea end nation, and that their I well-being, as contradistinguished from thai of the capitalists and em- niOKtf ot labor should occupy a ,oepsnnrftble portion of the atten tion of law making bodies. In the third place, we hail with pleasure a willingness ou the part of a man of suoh recognized political sagac ity as Butler to dissever himself from the fortunes of the Republi can party and Identify himself again with tbe pat ty of his youth and early manhood. It is an omen of evil for the. Republican and an auspice ot good lot tbe DaaaoeratU psrty that be has done so. i There are seme partisans who are not wi'.bout a sort of sympathy with what might he called the "cussedness" of old lieu. Ou« can come iv time to forgive the larceny of a silver tpoon or so, but there is something fascinating in the strabismic eye of Butler, iv ''fine pluensy roll ing," and we should not wonder If he were to prove to have over the rack aud flle of the voters of Mas sachusetts much sui.b un influence as tbe rattlesnake is said to possess over bird", by means of which the latter are brought within striking distance. If, owing to the demor alisation his bolt h is caused in the Republican party of Massachusetts, we succeed in cap tiring astray Congressman or two Irom the Bay State, ws shall regard his candi I icy as an uiimiXrd gnod to the Democracy. AM unquestionably pleasaut thing is the largo number of pre miums which have been awarded at tlie Paris Exposition to citizens of the United States. This country has advanced to the front rank in tlie invention and manipulation of all tliat contributes to the necessi ties or the luxury of mankind. When we read Pix'cy and Bierc In the Argonaut wa are tempted to think that the United States is at best but a scrubby sort of a coun try, but wheu the results of a close competition of the products of Americau genius with the best achlevemeuts of the most intellto •oal and progressive uations of the world are reported, wj humb'y venture to differ from th* insolent pro-Anglicans of San Francisco's biZirre literary paper. It is a somewhat curious circum stauce lhat mountain fires and a very high temper.ittire in Los An geles are frequently coincident. Yesterday and the, day before tlie mercury ranged as high as uiuety two and the lurid gleam of the tires in the mountains could be seen on all sides. We undoubtedly have warm weather without fires, but such a torrid temperature iv Octo ber is doubtless largely due to litis dls;urblng came. The newspaper people have per petrated their last outrage on Mr, Tilden. They have it tint the old gentleman is about to mirry a young and blooming St. Louis belle. We have great eonfldenoe in the resources of tho rightfully elect ed President but we don't think he is equal to snob an emergency as that, and we are unhesitating in our belief that he would decline to tike any such chances. THE San Francisco Chronicle, In transferring to its columns our account of the Chlneec ceremonials propiatiory of the devil, credits it to the Los Angeles Gazette. Our ooutemp >rary is entirely welcome to any matter* of interest it may find in our columns but we confess we would prefer to see them cred ited to tlie Herald. The sensational story as lo the cause of the death of G"n. C ilton would seem to be be completely ex ploded by the card of his physi cians. We have arrived at such a pass of sensationalism that it ig very hard to allow a famous man to die a natural death. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. ISpecUl f.o tha lItaALD by trie WtMlera Uaiou Tetrgr&pb Company. Pacific Coast News. l*ror«eaiMK« or t iii.r/Fsiiiin (.'Oat anitt««». Sacramento, Oct. 23d.—The Cninunttee on Corporations re sumed this afternoon. It was re solved that the Commissioners should hold office for four year-. A subcommittee — Gregg, Baibour, White and West—was upp noted to formulate a section defining the powers of the Commission. A sub committee, consisting of Howard, Reddy, Dean ami White wa< ap pointed to district tlie State into three districts. Howard offered a proposition giving the right to any citizens to run cars and locomotives on any track by psying the rales fixed oy the Commission. Defeated. The Committee on ilie Pardoning Power, Shafier Chairman, adopted a section vesting the pardoning power in the GoVerner, the Cbiel Justice concurring. The Committee on Revenue ami Taxation reconsidered the section adopted yesterday, making mort gages containing a provision re quiring the moiigagee to pay a tax on the money loaned invalid, and amended it so as to cause the lender to 10-e the interest only. A section was added giving tbe Leg islature power to levy a poll tax ol uot less than $2. Tbe Committee mi Education to day provided fur tlie appointment by the Governor of a r-Jtale rlo-r' of two from each Cotigiesiional District to sit twenty days eaeo year at the same per diem ami mileage as the legislature. The Judiciary Committee to-day fixed the salary or the Supreme Court Justices at $7,000. The salary of the superior Jtidg'-s was left to the I.ee i-l.it lire, being limited to $4 000. Special provisions will be made for San Francisco. The discussi-n on the Fawcett case will probably occupy the entire session to -morrow. The vote will undoubtedly bo very close. There are fifty Worklngmen, of whom two, West and Evey, will vote to retain Fawcett. 1 here are from six to ten Non-Partisans who have avowed their Intention tn vote with the Workingmeu. There arc five or six Nnn-Partizans ahseut and the Workingmeu will not need many votes to secure a majority. Shaffer, Hager and Freeman, of the Non-Partisans, will speak in favor of ousting Fawcett. &>U:el4» uf Sir*. TeJ lor, Oakland, Oct. 23. —Mrs. Taylor, wifenfLem. VV.

The Miser's Money. [Mempbls Avala icbe, 0c:. Bill.] Dr. Nelson, the tail raiser, died. Hi* sou died. Then his daughter, a beautiful young girl Just bloom ing into womanhood. Then bis wife. In almost one fell stroke the family were annihilated. Nelson was worth almost a quarter of a million dollars, a goodly portion of that sum in United Htates bonds He lived in tlie suburbs. When tlie house was cleared of its inhab itants, v man named Hamtiridge, who had been a resident of this city three years, walked in and took possession of a box containing j-welry, gold watohe-, etc. Like most ton v. n, Hambridge mu-l make a splurge with his 111 gotten gains, aud on Sunday evening be was arrested in a hack with a brace of cyprlans, making a racket about the towu. Hambridge's story is that the box of jewelry was taken possession of by him for the sole I'Utpoaeof delivering It to J. H. south of the Howards. But Ham bridge basa villainous looking face that would suspend hlin to a hick ory limb on sight iv Texas. When arrested, Hambridge made repeat-* ed efforts to get rid of Ibe jewelry box. He even attempted to give It to the poor women, hisfiolicksome companions, but tbe eagle-eyed po lice were too smart for Hambridge, tho box was then taken from bis person, and the dark-eyed looking thief is behind the bars. Woman on the Phonograph. [Eureka, Nevada, Leader.] A Nob Hill man retired early lasteveuiug, weary with the heal and tired out from a protracted siege of pedro, and vaiuly endeav ored to woo the drowsy >. <> I, sus tained and soothed by the uninter rupted flow of small talk from his wakeful spouse. 11 r conversation was not exactly in tbe lino of a cur tain lecture, as she was not iv an Inharmonious mood, but was rath er seeking Information in the world's work. Her last question to her nodding lord was iii reference to E lison and his inventions. " How about the phonograph, dear?" she queried; 'yu hove never explained It to vie. How does it work?" He roused himseT up and an swered: "It's a little machine that the husband leaves ou the table while lie is down towu, aud on bis return be turns a crank, and it informs him of everything that has beei said ou the premises during his absence.'' She meditated a moineut, then broke out: "The fool men are always getting up some pesky invention, and If you bring one of these things in ibis house I'll leave." He promised not lo do so, if she would let him go lo sleep, and a areat sileuee fell on tbe room. Bui she is now firm iv the belief thai Edison is a monster aud au enemy lo poor, weak woman. They Knew He Meant It. [Fulton Times I When a newly married widower passed a orowd who arere fttatiUlug on Kir-l street last week one of the party remarked: "He waited a long time before he nit-die I onto his second wife, didu't he?" "How long ago did ills first wif. die?" querried a subdued looking stranger, who was standing near. Tlie party figured that it had been about lour years. "Ton soon, too sioti," tin stranger; ' if my wife should die I'd never get murried again." Tbe moisture that gathered in the strangei's eyes eugulfed the crowd lv a sea of sympathy, ami when he bowed his head, and they saw the murks of the rollinu-pii behind h's oar, and observed that several tufts of hulr were missing from bis scalp, they knew he meaut what be said.
