SATURDAY JULY 23 Itifcl. Herald Steam Printing House. Tbe facilities ot the Uehald Steam Printing House for dolug lob work are not aurpaesed In California outside ot San S-ranoiaoo and Sacramento. All work on trusted lo us will be executed with neat -Ixl and dlspateh at the lowest living rates, •sTMCIAt. MOTIOIC Hereafter notices of companies,socie ties, eharobes, etc., will only be Inserted In tbe Hiiud as "paid a.lvertNemente. We reserve, tor Places of Worship, a grat is directory, which will appear every Sunday morning. AMY odb who desires tn gauge tbe large movement of oolu into Los Angeles county from abroad wbioh is now taking place* would do well to interview our leading bankers. They will instantly learn of the setting In of a tremendous current of cash towards this city. Tho vaults of our banks are simply plethoric with ooin, and the tide is running now fuller than ever. We have no hesitation ia saying that tho bauk statements of Los Ange las, taken as a whole, are the best In the State, both in the relative aoeumulatlon of coin and the re markable proportion of oash to tbe deposits. Tbe other day one of the leading newspapers of San Francisco noted tbe faot tbat the banks of the interior had been un ; usually Blow in sending ln tbe »Hul»anoual statements which the law commands should be made out en the first days of January and July, rospsotlvely. In the case of the Los Angeles banks these state ments wsre furnished with great promptitude and they are of a aharaoter not only notably gratify ing la themselves but suggestive of the great investment movement Whloh has been a conspicuous fea ture of this county during the past ■Iz months. We have exoellent reason to be proud of tbe status of our banks. Thursday's Call has a list of tho poor men of San Francisco and * "1 affords very suggestive reading, yany oonflding Augelofios will be i Vanished to lesrn that, in tbe ap aalsement of personal property, n« Bank of California makes tbe modest exhibit of $2,750 in money, and that notwithstanding the fact tbat tbe stook of tbe bank is sell ing at a very high premium. One would think tbat it wonlii be Impossible to keep paying over tbe counter long witb suoh a very trifling coin reserve. The Hibernia Savings und Loan So ciety acknowledges to having $180,840 ln casb, while popular rumor credits it with, at least one hundred and Sfty times that •mount. On tbe other hand, the London and San Franoieoo Bunk admits tbe possession of $480,053. Tho Jewelry of Charles Crooker is put down at $100, while many per sons bave seen a single gem spark ling on his finger which probably OOSt $4000 or $5000. Peter Donahue admits personal property to tbe -amount of $5000, while Wm. ■baron, iuoludiug all the furniture of the Grand and Palace hotels, ejonfosses to. having $81,900 worth "of personal property. The list might bs extended indefinitely, hut we have quoted enough to •bow how riches take unto them aslves wings when tbe Assessor eomea around. Tbe magical way In which money disappears and fortunes shrink at oertaln seasons of tho year must furnish food for reflection to the ordinary tax payer. Perhaps some of tbe loud .dlaoonlent wblob one occasionally aears Is rsfsrable to this shrinkage. AFTER tba election of Warner Miller as tbe successor of Piatt it of course surprises nobody tbat Xispbam should go through as the aoooeasor of Conkling. The same dloker that Insured the suooees of tho one made tbe other's election inevitable. Both of the new Sena tors arc men oonapieuous fortbeir mediocrity aud bave attained tbe little eminence they can claim ou MOOUnt of the possession of large means. With tbe steady infusion of such ioslgDifloank members, the .United States Senate would lose [east*, avsn If the aroma of admin istrative intrigue and whole sale legislative bribery had ■tot permeated the popular nostril. For the present Ris es* Conkling goes under, but there is little doubt but that •bora are ample elements of resur rection In the man. Had it not been for the malign union nf the lobbyist and tbe emissaries or the Federal government, be would un questionably have been re-eleoted to ths United States Senate. His assignation was a hasty and lll advleed measure, Inspired by his eooflder.ee m human nature. He sMM learned the bitter lesson tbat mournful injunction, "Pot not thy trust in priuces" ap plies in ths United States to all seen In authority under Republi can domination. The first round baa been fought, with first blood and first knock down for tbe ad ministration. The indecent spec tools bas oome to an end for tbe •resent, aod lv tbls every one Should rejoice. Tbere was enough Bepublleau rottenness shown ai med? in tbe eight weeks' deadlock M Albany, and there is no telling what unspeakable enormities might have been developed if this legislative orgle had lasted longer. Ike disposition shown in oities, of late, to compel telegraph com panies to lay their wires under ground, either In the sewers or In trenches specially dug for tbe pur pose, Is doubtless the beginning of tbeend of thereiguof tall poles and exposed wires, which are in every sense a nuisance. That the com panies, as soon as the change shall be effected, will save great sums, now yearly expended in repairs, cannot be doubted. But tbere is another aspeot of the matter inde pendent of the money considera tion, and It applies spec ially to the Paciflo Coaßt. How uuiformly, in the midst of some great crisis, like tha attempted as sassiuation of Gaifleld or tbe count ing of the Presidential vote, have the people of this Coaßt been treat ed to the disgusting announce- ment, "Lines down -no news from the East." Wheuever some aged aud scorbutic buffalo of the plaiiiß has thought it expedient to iub his back against a rotten telegraph pole, presto ! we bave been treated to an entire dearth of uews, tbe deprivation often lasting for days. With the lines once suugly depos ited a foot or so beneath the surface of tbe earth tbe buffalo's uncon scious veugenuce upou his human persecutors is rendered forever im possible, and the news of the world is at all times reliably at our com- mand. Now tbat the principal oities have taken the matter in band, it will not be long before the telegraph companies will bs -im pelled to consider the desirability of adopting subterranean lines everywhere. They are already convinced of the advisability of the change, and are only deterred from carrying it into effect by the large expenditure attending it. Let ub have the underground telegraph. It is not easy to attach too muoh lmportauoe to tho necessity of the appoiutment by tile Board uf Su pervisorsof the Horticultural Com missioners and Inspectors provided for by law. In the brat plaoe, tbe uew system has already been in* augurated, eleven counties having looai officials. Oilier counties are preparing to follow, uud It will uot do to have Los Angeles county iso lated as a fruit grower. Commis sioner Cook desires rather to per suade than coerce the Board of Su pervisors into compliance with the law, but It should be borne iv mlud that tbe act Invests him with very considerable powers in tbe prem ises. He cau, If wo liava no local system of inspectors to, as It were, vise tbe passport of our fruit, quar antine the couuty, and thus utterly prevent the exportation of auy of our citrus or other fruits that give any indication of having beeu in fasted by the sci'.le bug, coddling moth, or other mischievous insect. Even the sound fruit would thou be uuder tbs ban. It Is far better to appoint our own Horticultural Commissioners and Inspectors than to compel tbe State Commissioner to re sort to peremptory meas ures. We learn that those of our local horticulturists who were for merly opposed to the Board's making these appointments, amongst the rest Mr. L. J. Rose, are now favorable to such action. With efficient iooal Commissioners and Inspectors, a brisk anti-lnseot campaign of two or three years ought to rid us of the scale bug and the ooddling moth and its lar vsa and pur.B3. All that is needed to plaoe Los Augeles ou a splendid footing as to tbe health of its or chards ia that the Board of Super visors should defer to the law, our people showing an emulous co-op eration.
