The fine exhibit of Mr. E. J.
Baldwin's Santa Anita brandies
basattracted much attention at the
Mechanics' Pavilion in Han Fran
eisoo. In addition to making very
extensive improvements on his
property, Mr. Baldwin has paid
great attention to tbe quality of
his wines and brandies, and has
oertainly achieved a great success
la the latter. Southern California
Bas now gone to the front rank in
tbe manufacture of cognacs. All
tbey need is age to compare favor
ably with tbe most famous French
"~ ~THBRE seems to be no doubt but
n.srffut, though tbe oity and county
ticket of tbe Republican party in
San Francisco has, here and tbere,
a good name upon it, its personnel
was dictated by the corporations.
Ths fact is that these iustitutious
seem to have obtained the absolute
control of the Republican party in
tbe city of Sin Francisco, the State
•nd the nation. Tbe money power
oan make no demand upon
tbis organization that is not
followed by instant compli
ance. Having secured a ticket
whloh suited them from tbe Re
publicans, tbe next task to wbicb
* the corporations applied them
selves was to creating dissensions
amongst a portion of tbe San
Franolsoo Democracy. Tbeir suc
cess in tbis line seems to have been
only too complete.
-' Senator James T. Farley re
turned from Washington, the other
day, and is now in San Franoisco,
where he is greeted with the oor
diality to whiob bis eminent ser
vices to tbe State entitle him. Tbe
attempt to monopolize for Senator
Miller, hie colleague, the houor of
bringing about successful action
on tbe Chinese treaty is one of the
amnsing features ef our current
politics. Senator Farley, lo sea
son and out, has labored indefati
gably to give 'effect at Washington
to tbe views of tbe people of the
Pacific Coast, and, while bis
•leveDth hour coadjutor did his
duty in the premises, bis services
have been trivial iv comparison
with the persevering and unremit
ting labors of Senator Farley, who
has in every other respect been en
crgetio and successful in enforcing
California's claims to recognition.
Though, like Miller, not a great or
ator, tbere are very lew Senators of
tbe United States wbo have served
but a portion of a slDgle term, who
exercise more influence amongst
bis fellow members than Califor
nia's senior Senator. Perfect tact,
a great fund of common seuse and
* winning bonhommie have all
contributed to tbe usefulness and
snocesi of Mr. Farley. The attempt
to place his justly won ftiurels on
Senator Miller's brow has proved
te ( be a ridiculous fiasco.
A. B. Hotchkisr, Esq., former
ly District Attorney of Ban Diego
couuiy, bas published a quite
lengthy communication Id theNtws
ot that place in which he maintains
the position that tbere bas been no
valid assessment of tbe railway,
owing to tbe failure of tbe County
Assessor aud County Board of Su
pervisors to make a proper valua
tion of railway effects. Every
good citizen hopes to see the vari
ous railways of the State bear their
v fair share of the public burdens,
but we are no whit surprised that
conflicts should arise out of the
very complex provisions of the
new Constitution witb respect to
taxation. Notwithstanding the
faot tbat Ibe Constitution bas ap
parently, in express te-ms, com
mitted tbe valuation of the prop
erty of railways running through
more than one couniy lo Ihe State
Board of Equalisation, Mr. Hotob
kiss finds a number of arguments
to prove tbat such assessments can
only be made by the looal authori
ties. As Los Angeles couniy Is In
tbe same boat with San Diego, tbe
action of our Board of Supervisors
bavlng been the same as respects
tba railway, the subject is one of
great interest to tax-payers. It un
fortunately too often happens tbat
In tbe oourts a mere verbal nicety
determines a oase against right
and propriety, and it is in order for
•very tax-payer to have in his wal
let a few extra dollars to enable
bim to meet tbe contingency of
having to pay tbe railway's share
of Ihe (axes. Mr. Hotcbaiss bas
oertainly made an ingenious and
comprehensive argument, though
it la to bs hoped tbat no mere in
formality will be allowed to add to
tbo burdens of tbe general tax
The influence which the prac
tice of sending lawyers in such
overwhelming numbers to the sev
eral Btate and tothe National Leg
islatures exerts upon the Bcope of
our laws is an Interesting subject
for speculation. It Is probably no
exaggeration to say tbat two-fhlrds
of all the gentlemen elected to
serve the people In any legislative
capaolly belong to the legal profes
sion. As a result our laws, Btate
and National,are every day becom
ing more complex and volumin
ous. These amiable limbiOf tbe law
are iv many cases attorneys for cor
porations, orelther have or expect
to receive ratalners from corpora
tions. It Is not a harsh iuferonce
to suspect that, in framing the
laws, they should allow a strong
bias to their patrons to influence
them peroeptibly. Making their
living by the disputes and litiga
tion, which often grow out of a
skillfully placeJ or misplaced
word, it is small wonder that, in
drawing up statutes, the African
should be placed In that portion of
the legal wood pile where he will
do the most good. And yet it
would be a very difficult thing to
suggest a remedy for this growing
evil. Should farmers and other
laymen be sent to tbe law-making
bodies in greater numbers, through
tbeir ignorance of tbe modus oper
andi of running legislatures and
statute making, they would be at
tbe meroy of the lawyers who
should, here and there, be sand
wicbed in amongst tbem. It Is
natural that a lawyer should make
laws, and plenty of tbem. With
him it is the more tbe merrier.
The more statutes the more litiga
tion. As a consequence, io some
of our States the accumulation of
litigatton is something frightful to
contemplate. In New York, not
withstanding tbe creation ot a
branch court of appeals to dispatch
arrears of business, it takes tbree
years before a case appealed can be
reached on tho calendar. Iv the
oity, in tbe courts of original juris
diction, it takes about as long to
have a cue called. There ure those
who have a devout belief lhat fill
ing our Legislatures witb lawyers
bas to this enormous body of litiga
tion the relation of cause aud effect.
Yet, in the language of the illus
trious Tweed, "What are you go
ing to do about it ?"

San Francisco, August 9.—ln
the Mint investigation tv-day Su
perintendent Dodge testified tbat
in making removals of some of
Page's appointees he had been ac
tuated by the fact that they were
either unnecessary, inattentive or
Incompetent, He continued: "The
simple truth Is that I could not get
aloog with Mr. Page without sur
rendering to him the entire con
trol of the mint, and as I refused to
do tbat, be treated me as his ene
my, and in my own protection I
was forced to retaliate. It was un
der this idea tbat I did my best to
defeat his nomination for Con
gress." He further stated that
Page's friends In tbe mint were
disposed to set at naught tbe au
thority of tbe Superintendent, and
consequently they were dismissed.
Mint Direotor Burobard testified
regarding tbe manner of passing
upon tbe Mint accounts. The As
sistant First Auditor told the wit
ness tbat Dodge's accounts for tbe
last quarter bad not yet been aoted
upou, owing to the misplacement
of certain vouohersand tbe request
of Page that actiou on tbem be de
ferred UU after tbe investigation.
Page here denied tbat he had
made sucb a request, but stated
tbat the First Auditor told him
the delay arose because he was
doubtful if tbe law would justify
him In auditing so great a loss as
Dodge's accounts showed—s22,ooo
—taking tbat amount out of tbe
silver profit fund. Burchard reit
erated his testimony and Page In
formally swore to the truth of his
statement, sayinir that tbe com
mission had his full permission to
verify it by telegraphing to Waßh
Clareaoe Umf Meuleaeea.

Some ourious statistics of suicide
are published in a German pupsr,
from which It appears that, con
trary to the general belief, the
number of suicides lv London is
relatively much less than In the
other European capitals. In Leip
zig, the "Chimborazo of luioide,"
us it is called by a German Profes
sor, tbe averaire number of suicides
from 1871 io 1879 was 450 pet mil
lion luhabllaute; in Paris it Was
400, iv Vienna 285, iv Berlin-280,
aud in London ouiy 85 per million.
Auotber popular uotiou, tbat sui
cides are more frequent iv Novem
ber than iv other months, is also
luooriect, the greatest number of
suicides occr.mug in May, June
and July. Those who are tired of
life or are destitute of the means of
supporting it, usually hung them
selves; while those who commit
suicide from shame, remorse, or
unrequited affection, take poison or
use firearms. The proportion of
men to women whocommit suicide
is as four to oue.
