The Road to a Democratic and Fee- pie's Victory. I No reader of tbe Herald can 1 have failed to remark tbat, until lately, we have not tees enthused with the prospects of a Democratic . victory this Fall. We have regard > ad the matter, in sporting parlance, | somewhat as follows: The Repub | Mean party selling first favorite at * long odds, with the Democracy sec i Odd, tbe Worklngmen's and New Constitution parties in the field. To carry out a parallel taken from tbe turf, all who have ever bought pools in a race know bow likely I the first choice Is to drop from first to second position on tbe first heat. Th* Kearneyites will not carry California. There is no necessity for much discussion on this propo sition. Next September they will | hare t* do their own voting. Hith erto olreumstanoes have prevented | th* disclosure of their real numeri- I aal weakness. Iv the Constitu tional election in San Francisco thousands voted the Workingmeu's ! ticket for a " lark." Through tbe aid of such persons the Kearney I delegates managed to poll 13,000 votes. They were assisted in doing this by the good humored frolic iomeness of men who, in all na tional and important State issues, are either Democrats or Republi cans, and by tbe fact that in San Franelsoo there were, iv addition to the Worklngmen's ticket, straight Democratic and Republi can and non-partizan tickets. The " lark" has run Us day. No self respecting citizen of California, who does not already belong to a Workingmeu's club, will be Instrumental In placing Denis Kearney in this State in some such attitude as that occupied by doss ier and his cap in the Switzerland of William Tell. The insultingsu premacy ot Kearney will never be recognized in California, aud those who have taken bis blighting and presumptuous pledges have com mitted a fatal mistake. His ribald and insolent diatribes have rung, from Humboldt Hall, the knell of hi* party. His followers, when the vote comes to be counted, will be aatonished at the bareness of tbe mere political skeleton of which they will be the ghastly bones and articulations. To our extreme surprise things are shaping themselves for a Dem ocratic victory In September. Tbe Republican party of California seems to be passing into the control of the corporations. The most prominent candidates named for Governor by tbe Republicans are men as to whom there is a well grounded suspicion of monopoly tendencies. Bumors of tbe ascend anoy of the Gorham-Carr-Boruck influence in the counsels of tbe party fill the air; and, where there la so much smoke, there is likely to be some fire. Under such circumstances the duty of the Democracy is clear. It I* to assemble on the first of July and nominate a complete straight Democratic State and Congression al ticket, taken from Democrats in harmony with tbe new Constitu tion. It is quite in the power of the party to command the hearty and enthusiastic support of tbe new Constitution party, which is pow erless alone, but wbioh is very strong in the State, in Boots. Tbe new Constitution party, as a sepa rate organization,would be a fiasco; and voter*, knowing that it would be doomed in advance, would hesi tate to Identify themselves with it. There are five Caiifornians who would join to make a movement approved by the new Constitution party successful to one who would be willing to Isolate himself by be coming * member of a select and helpless organization. It is worthy of remark that the new Constitu tion party, as the Chronicle has re peatedly pointed out, developed its principal strength In Democratic atroogboids. In counties where tbe Kearneyites were strongest tbe poorest showing was made. So of counties in which the Kearneyites and Republicans predominated. The Constitution is now the su preme law ot California aud all Democrats cordially support it. There would, therefore, be no in consistency in all Democrats unit ing In giving a pronounced promi nence to the representatives of that element of tbeir party through whose hearty championship the new Constitution has become our organic law. Tbe Herald was a hearty and resolute opponent of the new Instrument from conviction. Oar readers of all shades of opinion are witnesses of tbe fact that our opposition ended on the day of tbe •lection. If tbe Democratic Convention shall nominate a first-class ticket, with, for instance, Geu. Volney E. Howard for Chief Justice, Judge Terry for Attorney-General, and Democrats for the other Important positions on tbe ticket whom all fair minded men could approve, th* New Constitution party could jg^t•joeertally endorse it. To carry out **A**flh a plan th* new Constitution Bat Convention should adjourn until after the sessions of Its Demo cratic precursor. The members of the new organization have not aimed to establish a permanent new patty. Their sole aud avowed purpose Is to guarantee the new Constitution a friendly interpreta tion. With Howard as Chief Jus tice and Terry as Attorney-General, tbe one invested with tho power of passing on all questions relating to the new organic law and the other with the prerogative of initiating ail legal measures looking to its en forcement, the New Constitution party would be perfectly content, and the Chronicle would doubtless, under such circumstances, labor for the success of the Democratic tick et with the same zeal and ability shown by it iv advocating the new Constitution. Stranger things than that bave happened. In any event, such a movement would bs certain to carry the State. Current Notes. During a campaign which prom ises to be tbe most exciting ever known in California we propose, from time to time, to reflect Inci dents of politics and tbe views of our contemporaries, with comments of our own. The Examiner of June 7th has tbe following summary of Kearney's Convention: A review of tbe proceedings in Convention will be interesting to readers. Kearney tried hard on several occasions, and in his own rough, bullying, blackguard man ner, to bull-doze tbe delegates from the Interior counties into nominat ing candidates of his own, whom they did not wish to place In can didacy. So unfortunate and in sulting was he in one instance—in the nomination of tbe candidate for Congress in tbe Second district —that tbe delegation sharply re buked him and told him flatly that he had no business in tbeir meet ing. He at once sneaked away like a chastised cur. He so grossly Insulted tbe Nevada delegation tbat they withdrew from the Con vention. Other delegates were bullied and brow-beaten by him, but they submitted with more or less manifest suppressed anger. His conduct was such in reference to nominations, in two or three in stances, that, bad the Convention to again choose its Presideut, be would hardly he the man. He was properly snubbed, however; his objections were disregarded, his protestations and threats unheeded and his avowed antagonism scorned by the nomination of the very can didates be most loudly and vehe mently declared against. In short, he was derided as well as snubbed. Having a thoroughly friendly feeling for our confrere, tbe editor of the Express, we were heartily sorry to encounter the following in the proceedings of the Kearneyite Convention: Kearney then read a telegram from Los Angeles, directed to M. F. Quion, signed by James J. Ayers, which was to tbe effect that be had taken the iron-clad pledge and swallowed tbe platform iv full. Col. Ayers's "swallow" must ri val that of tbe whale which ab sorbed Jonah. The Examiner, of the 7th, has the following upon this disgusting pledge business: In the matter of nominations for Congress, Kearney managed to pro cure the adoption of the cast-iron pledge, by which he expected to play tbe whole game into tbe hands of the Radicals, and defeat tbe candidacy of every one of Dem ocratic antecedents. It is remark able that tbe pledge was adopted, for it is, in itself, the stultification aud defeat of the candidates, inas much as tbe Worklngmen's vote alone cannot elect any of them, and it prevents them from receiv ing ths nomination or support of any other party. But, in spite of Kearney, a better ticket was nom inated, all around, than would bave been had he had his own way. His pet candidate is Barbour, and he is the worst of tbe few who are bad. The Republican papers are pat ting the little drayman on the back and heartily hoping that the De mocracy will commit hari-kari by endorsing bis political spawn. To all of which the lion-hearted De mocracy replies in tbe sweet re frain, "Not for Joseph." Bristol repudiated the celebrat ed Edmund Burke because he would not submit to their dictation to withdraw bis support from the measures of Wilberforce to miti gate tbe miseries of African slaves, thus conflicting with the interest of Bristol meichaots whe were largely interested in the West In dia trade. Burke maintained that tbeir election of him as their rep resentative was never intended to fetter him in the free exercise of his independent judgment. That a member of tbe British Parliament was bound to consult tbe welfare of the whole empire, not the fancied prosperity of a siugle constituency: and tboso interests, properly under stood, were inseparable from the still higher duties which ail owed to humanity aud religion. There are some of our California embryo statesmen who, when pledges insultiug to their self-re spect are tendered to them, might well Imitate the example of Burke. It Is curious to note the eager ness with which the San Diego Union and other Republican pa pers are endeavoring to crowd the Democratic party into an endorse ment of tbe Kearney ticket. There Is a wholesome old rule in politics which it is always perfectly safe to observe, viz., ascertain what your enemies would have you do and then go and do—the opposite. This Is one of those rules which so thor oughly prove themselves that they do not even stand lv need of tbe traditional excep tion. Tbe advice Is or tbe kind which Inspired the line, "Walk into my parlor, said the spider to the fly." The managers of the Democratic party iv Califor nia cut their eye-teeth several years ago; and, when they desire to commit political suicide, they will do it with somebody other than Denis Koarney to boss the wake. We hare all had our joke at tbe expense of the "Honorable Bilks," yet the fact remains that, in con nection with the San Francisco Chronicle, they made the most vig orous and successful campaign, io tbe Interest of the new Constitu tion, in the history of California. Even the "Honorable Bilks" and their vigorous newspaper ally could not have succeeded unless, as a con dition precedent, Denis Kearney had been taken off the stump. Any one is a "bilk" with the swearing ex-Boatiwaln unless he is ready to eat an amount of dirt which no self-respecting citizen can carry iv his stomach and live. Those who believe that the I Democratic party is practically out ! of the ooniing fight are doomed to a woeful disappointment. Out of the nettle danger the grand old party is Intent upon plucking tbe flowor safety. Solomou of old, we think it was, who had occasion to observe tbat some thiugs could be done as well as others; and we, in this later and degenerate age, will have occasion to recognize the pregnant wisdom of Ibe saying.

EASTERN. Wlllsf Bsu Wsril Jr. New York, June 9tli.—The will of Samuel Ward, Jr., son of the well known Sam Ward, now being contented before tbe Surrogate Court of thia city, was submitted to surrogate Calon yesterday for final decree. The estate is said to be worth about $40,000. Ward, Jr., went to France some years ago with his mother and was for a time engaged in business there. In Sep tember, 1866, he made aud executed a document which is pronounced as his will. It was written in French, occupying only four lines of writing, and was subscribed by him and by four persons as wit nesses, three of them being menial servants in the household. His will left all bis property to his mother. He died, aud a few days after his death, bis mother died also, leav ing a will bequeathing all her es tate to her mother. Tbe will ot Ward, Jr., is now contested by his father, the main objections urged being that at the time of making it he was not a citizen of tbe United States, and that it is not properly attested by a witness to its execution. A large amount of documentary evidence was sub mitted to the Surrogate. Witness es testify that when the will was executed Ward, Jr., said: "It is evident that I give it all to my mother. I don't know my father." This is the nearnst approach of any testimony that, this instrument is his will. The Surrogate lias re served his decision.

It expects to fur nish its readers, in tbe course of a few months, with the most complete and trustworthy survey of the whole of the new mining region, extending from Ne vada to Arizona, that has yet been made. Chteago Turf Mailer,. Chicago, June 9th.—The stable of racers belonging to Henry Schwartz, of San Francisco, arrived Saturday aud are at the Jockey Club track. Colouel McDaniel, the well-known New York turfman, also has a stable here. Both of these turfmen came early to pre pare their horses for tbe six days' meeting, beginning June 2lst, for which there are four huudred en tries iv the stakes alone.

Tne running meeting, which begins Juue 21st, promises to be.the most successful ever known, ami Colouel McDaniel pronounces the track the finest aud fastest one he has ever worked horses on Tbe C'bieaco Caelum Hurtse. Ohioaoo, Juue 9th.— In the Cus tom house construction cases to-day Judge Dyer occupied three hours iv delivering bis charge to the jury. He reviewed the evidence as of fered, arid the authorities referred to, relating to conspiracy to de fraud. Soon after 3 o'clock the jury entered the court room with a verdict of acquittal of all accused. It would seem that as all of the points charged in the indictment of fraud upon the Government, to tbe extent of over $800,000, was not disputed, the jury accepted the tbeory of the defense, that the re sponsibility rested uot upon tbe officials, nor upon tbe contractors, but upon tbe hundreds of laborers employed on the work. This wrb tbe theory set up by Assistant- Secretary French, in extenuation and apology upon tbe preliminary report made by the Uouernment officers hers. Chicago has for n public building a pile of rotten stone, and the feeling is not one of congratulation. Cnullnnallau ul Jlolr«<) ll.il,Kllnl. , Chicago.

THOMAS GORDON. i •a Angeles, Juue 1,1878. JS-gw LITEHARY. THE SUN FOR 1879. THE BUN will be printed evory day during the year to eoino. it.- puipose and method will be tbe Banie as in the past: To present all the news in a readable shape, and to tall tho truth though the heavens fall. THE BUN has bfen, in, au.l will oou tiuue to bu independent of everybody and everything s .Ye the Truth una its own couvi;iions of duty. That is the polioy which haa won for this newspaper tbe con fidence and iriendship of a wider constitu ency than was cror enjoyed by any other Anici icau Journal. THK BUiN is the newspaper for the peo ple. It is not lor tbe rioh man against thu poor man, or fer tbe poor man against the rich man, but it seeks to do equal jus tice to all classes iv the community, it is uot tho organ of any person, class, sect or party. There ueod he no mystery about ite loves and bates. It is foi' the honest man against thu rogues evory time. It is for thu honobt Democrat us against tho dishonest Republican, and for the honest Hepublican as against the dishonest Dem ocrat. It does not take its cue from tbo utterances of any politician ur political or ganization. It gives its support unreserv edly when mon or measures are in agree ment with the Constitution and with the principles upon which this Ik-public wan founded for the people. Whenever the i Constitution aud constitutional principles are violated— as in the outrageous conspir acy of 1876, by which a man not elected was placed in the President's office, where he still remains—it speaks out for the right. That ia THE BUN'S idea of inde pendence. Iv this respcot there will bo no Change in its programme for 1879. THK BUN has fairly earned tne nearly hatred of rascals, frauds and humbugs of all sort-* and sizes, it hopes to deserve that haired not less in the ytar 1379 than in 1878,1877, or any year gone by. THK SUIN will continuo to Bbine ou the wicked with unmitigated brightness. Whilst the lessons of the past t-hould bo constantly kept before the people, THK BUN does nut propose to make itself in 1879 a magazine of ancient history. It is printed for the men and women of to-day, whose eoneorn is ohieily with the affairs of to-day. It baa both tho disposition and the anility to afford its readers tbe prompt est, fullest and most accura'e intelligence of whatever in the wide world is worth at tention. To thiri end the resources belong ing tv well-established prosperity will be liberally omployod. '1 lie present disjoiated condition of par ties in this country and the uncertainty of the future lend an extraordinary signifi cance to the events of the oumiug year. The discussions of tbo press, the debates and acts of Congress, and tbo movements oi tbo leaders iv overy section of the Re public, will bave a direct bearing on the Presidential election of 1880—an event wbioh must bo regarded with the most anxious interest by every patriotic Amer ican, whatever his political ideas or alle giance. To these elements of interest may be added the probability that the Demo crats w 11 control both houses of Congress, the increasing feebleness of tbe fraudulent Administration, and the spread and strengthening everywhere of a healthy ab~ horrence of fraud in any form. To pre sent with accuracy and olearness the exact situation in each of its varying phases, and to expound, according to its well-known methods, the principles that should guide us through the labyrinth, will be an im portant part of THK SUN'S work for 1879.
