It is amusing to note the differ ence which may sometimes be be twixt tweedledum and tweedledee. In a double leaded editorial the Ban b'ranoisco Examiner, of the 3rd iust., congratulates the two wlegi of tbe Demooracy upon hav ing adjusted their little disputes and leached a stage of harmony Which promises beatific- results at the polls. The Chronicle of the same date, ou tbe other hand, de scribes the conference between tbe Tosemltes and Manhattans as "An Abortive attempt." What wonder Is It tbat the great events of history I. aura miaunderatood when such varl | act accounts are given of a matter wW*ta happened tbe other day in Ban Franolsoo, every detail of wblsh could be verified. In both eases the wish is father to tbe thought, though tbe quite evideut necessity for agreement if the Dem osrata are to have a ghost of asuow for success in tbe San Franoisco municipal eleotion ought, in the •nd, to result In some sort of party harmony. THE Tlohboroe claimant is not tba only sensational heir San Diego oan boaat of, if a very long account of a peculiar baby, oontained In Wednesday's Chroniole, can be re- lisd upon. If this narrative shall prove to have some foundation in faot, proceedings iv tbe courts will soon give a legitimate publicity to tho details. While tbe aphorism of Solomon may be true tbat there is nothing new under tbe sun, tbe light of that luminary is sometimes thrown upon some very dark corners of this work-a-day world, revealing chapters of every day life whiob, If not new, are nev ertheless surprising. Thu parties to tbis singular incident are, If tbe story proves to be a true oue, the baby aforesaid, a lady well known In both San Diego aud Los Ange las (and in fact all over tbe Coast}, • dashing subaltern in tlie United States army and a woman who Is | - In the habit of making herself use ful iv certain delicate family con junctures. Every incident in the matter discounts the utmost flights of tbe Imaginative author of a dime novel, and the people of Sau Diego are absolutely stupefied witb astonishment. Tbe chagrin and mortification of tbe quid-nuues and gossips at never having even sua peoted what, it is asserted, was going on for months before their vary eyes, are simply unspeakable. Many of the guild are supposed to contemplate emigration or suicide, ' ao profound is tbeir disgust. They raallxa that their perceptive facul ties will forever hereafter be at a terrible discount. Tjsb California Miners' Associa tion, through the Messrs. Thomas Ball, Al vlnza Hay ward, and eleven well known gentlemen com posing Its Board of Council, have Issued a memorial on the Debris question which contains a number -Of specious statements iv advocacy •f tbeir right to destroy the Sacra mento valley aud. a number of tbe rivers and harbors of California, Md to tax tbe whole people of the State for the ostensible benefit of a portion of tbe people of six coun ties. While we should like to ccc hydraulic mmmg oontinue to floui- lab, we think that a portion of Ms profits should be devoted to taking oare of the resultant debris, ou tbt; principle that every carpenter sbould take oare of bis own chips. Ifitbetrue, as this manifesto as atrtl, that the hydraulic mines of California are actually worth $80, --000,000, that $20,000,000 are de pendent upou tbe existence of the mines, aad that the yearly yield Is $18,000,000, every tax-payer, out side of the limits of the counties , named, will say that tbls valuable Interest la well able to take oare of Itself. It is tbe only one that has bad the impudence to ask the peo ple of tbe Btate to step in and bear what ought to be its own rightful burdens. In addition to the innpo f eillon praetlaed upon the people of California, It bas been conclusively shown tbat the so-called improve mants made pursuant to tbe Debris legislation were no improvements •tall, that Ihey were a mere pre text for spending the State's money, Md tbat tbey imperiled the future •f ons of the most prosperous re gions of tbe State. Tbe memorial tot* state tbat, "several years since, "tbey oeosme satisfied tbat It was ••practicable, at a comparatively ; "moderate expense, to safely store - "for many years to come all the In i "Jurlous flow of mining debris in "tb* Tuba, Bear and American | "tlrm, by forming reservoirs by • "Ik* construction of brush and "stone dams lv the bottoms and "caflons of those streams." Such being the oase, tbe average tax payer would like to know why these gentlemen, out of tbe large profits of tbeir business, did not go to work and provide these facilities for taking care of debris. As the oase stands, they are left in tbe attitude of Bblrkera of oue of tbe legitimate expenses of their business, prefer ring to log-roll bills through the Legislature to going down into their own pockets. There is beginning to be » gen eral feeliue amongst thu-,- who have loooked over Loa Angeles county that tbe great bulk ot ber eligible lauds ought to be devoted to the grape. Hitherto tbe Pueblo aud the Ban Gabriel valley have arrogated to themselves tbe dis tiuctiou ot being, par excellence, tbe viueyard regiou of tbe couuty. Experiments which have beeu made by Mr. Burke aud others, in Loa Nietos valley, show tbat the yield of tbe vine there, without a particle of irrigation, is exception ally large, greatly exceeding tbat of the Ban Gabriel valley, great as the latter is. While experience bas proved that tbere may be a glut of oranges, and while we know tbat the soale-bug and other pests are ugly exisling facts, tbe pro ducts of tbe wive press commaud a market in all quarters of tbe world, and tbeir value iucreases tbe longer tbey are kept. Tbe enter prising farmer of Los Nietos val ley wbo bad tbe courage to drop corn and barley and plant grapes realized $200 an acre. What pret tier life iB there in the world than tbat of a man wbo, In the nearly perfect climate of Loa Angeles, buys from thirty to forty acres of land and makes himself a vineyard? On the supposition that bis grapes would yield him only $50 au sere □ et, he would bave an income of from $1500 to $2000 a year. But tbere Is abaolutely no exaggeration in putting toe net yield per acreat $75 to $100, aud where the vine yardist also makes bis own wine, at much higher ligures. Of course, there is uo income until the third year, and eveu then the grape vines are uot iv lull beating order; but, once fairly under way, tbey live practically forever. There are vineyards iv tbe Han Gabriel val ley which are quite one hundred years old, and that ate even now proline bearers. Mr. W. H. Work man last year vetted $200 an acre from a portion of his vineyard which is over Bixty years old. Thus tho delay aud inconvenience of waiting are well repaid, in the cud. No man, however, should attempt the experiment unless he likes au open air life and has mouey enough to ccc the thing through. He should be able to buy his land and put upon it the necessary improvements, with an overplus sufficient to see bim through the probationary period. Iv a country where the rates of in terest are high it is the sheerest folly to get into debt. Of course there are many instances of men ot unlimited energy and persever anse wbo bave gone into debt and created competencies tor them selves out of nothing iv Los Ange les oounty. But these are tlio ex ceptions which simply prove the rule, and II is right to caution tyros against too much self-confidence. The Inducements held out by Los Angeles county are to those who bave at least small means, and to such tbe return is large if not im mediate. There iB nothing like it ou tbe American continent, or even iv France. Tbe yield of tbe grape is somethlug to marvel at, ranging from four to, in some extreme cases, fifteen tons to tbe acre. The more valuable grapes, such as tbe Blaue Elben and Berger, are un usually prolific, yielding much more and selling for a much higher price thau the Mission va riety. Last year grapes sold for from $20 to $25 a ton, some very choice grapes going as high as $30 to the ton. Eligible lands for vineyarda a oan be bad anywhere for from $15 to $40 per acre, acoording to quality and location. Bight here is the genuine bonanza of Southern California. The Boston Commercial Hulletin has been running over olden chron icles, and nmong otber things learns tbat Ptolemy Philadelphus of Egypt, who lived B. C. 283. amassed a snug little private lor tune of $1,000,000,000. He contin ually maintained an army consist ing of 200,000 tool and 40 000 horee, 3CO elephants and 2000 aimed chari ots. These ancient gentlemen not only made a great deal of money, but Ihey spent it quite as fieely and rapidly as tbey made it. Cic ero, like most literary man of all ages, was impecunious, and yet be could give $160,000 for a villa lo live in; Clodius (his bitter enemy) paid $650 000 for bis town residence on the Palatine, while Messala, who also wished to live on tbe Pa latine (tbat being the then fash ionable quarter in Borne), bought Maro Antony's old residence at the reasonable figure of $2,000,000. A distinction: An esthetic Bos ton lady wbo was on her first visit to the great metropolis, entertain ed a party nf female frieuds with some timely observations about tbe progress of the fine arts: "I have understood," she said, "al though I don't know exaotly how I got tbe impression, tbat you New York ladies do not encourage tbe followlngoftbe best standards, tbat you bave not tbe faculty of laying bold on the sublime truths of art." "Well, I dare say that's so," re turned ons of ber audience, whose delicately enamelled skin shone like tinted alabaster, ".we're near ly all painters, bat very few of us are artists."

H*W atMllroad Opened, Denver, Col., August sth.—The openiug of the Denver and Bio Grande road to Durango, 450 miles from Denver, in southwestern Col orado, was celebrated tbere to-day. This ia the completion of oueof tbs several extensions of that road now being c instructed In tbis State. The extension just finished Is 200 miles long, beginning at Alamosa, on the Rio Graude river,anil leimi nating in tbe Animas valley. Io this valley are immense coal de posits, a hundred miles wide. It Is also tba natural southern outlet for tb* rich mining distrlot ef San Juan, which baa been but little de-1 veloped, owing to the want of proper transportation facilities. The other extension will tap Sau Juan on the east and north, a re gion coverlug au area as large as Lhe State of Massachusetts, and in tersected by various mountain ranges and traversed by many riv ers. At present 20011 men are em ployed on this extension and about three miles of track are laid daily. In April, 1880, 337 miles of road were operated. On the Ist of this month >!»". miles were in operation, showing that dur ing tbe last sixteen mouths 4SB miles of road bave been com pleted. These roads are being built lv a mountainous country anil will tap a section of tbe State rich iv luiueral resources, Eight hundred and Ufly miles more of road are now under contract uud construction is being pushed as far as the Utah border. The exteusiou to Ouonisou City will be com pleted on Monday next. The other extensions to mining oampi are being pushed forward to comple tion before the early snows. The increase of tho mile- of road •perated aud the great develop ment of the Industries of (be Stale bave caused a proportionate in crease in earnings. In 1880 the gross earnings for the seven months ending July 31st were 51.459.460 40; for the same time iv 18sl, $3,104,04J 87. The net earn ings lor the liis- six' months in 1889 were $520,218 53, and for the same lime tbis year $1,173,839.65. Thought He Was the Best Liar. A man who looked v bit baid up, but had a pleasant face and a smooth address, walked Into tho office of a railroad ruuning west and asked to see tbe Superintend ent, Wheu oonduoted to tbat of ficer's desk, be began: "I want the favor of a pass to Buffalo." "Can't have it!" was the prompt reply. "I expected that answer aud am prepared for it. I did not come here with a tale of woe. I bavo uot been robbed. No ! Not a rob. I did nut lose my money ou the street. 1 am not obliged to rush borne to see my wife die. I am not a consumptive wbo is anxious to get home aud die among his friends. All these pleas are old." "Yes, very old anil thin." "Aud yet I want v pass to Buffa lo. I feel that I have a right to ask it." "On what grouuds ?" "This morning I savel Ihe life of a passenger on one of your trans fer boats. He was a big, tei-whie kered man named Clark, Had he gone overboard it would have cost you perhaps 150,000 to settle the claim." "Clark! Big man with red whis kers? Wretched mai , you know not what you did! That's the man who has already aclalm for $20,000 against us for breaking his leg. If you bad only let him gone over board we could have settled with bis heirs for less than quarter that amount. Get out! Go away! You bave taken thousands of dollars out of our pockets by your meddle some act." Tbe beat walked out without a word, but as he reached the door he was heard to grumble: "I thought I was the best liar on the Atlantic Coast, but I might as well hang up from Ihls deal." Dr. Louis, of New Orleaus, who is something of a wag, nailed ou a colored minislei aud propounded a few puasling questions. "Why is it," said he, "tliat you are not able to do tbe miracles that tbe apostles did? 'Ihey were protected against all poisons and all kinds of perils; how is it that you are not protected in the same way ?" The colored brother responded promptly,"Don't know about that, doctor; I 'spect I is. I've taken a mighty sight of strong medicine from you, aud I i.< alivo yet." NEW TO-DAY. Dr. C. C.
