Ia sneaking of matters horticultural
with Mr. Uilman, Superintendent of the

Company, he gives it as hia opinion
that the orange crop will be quite
arga thia year, at least greatly
in excess of laat year's orop. The
dropping of oranges iv tbe early part of
the season, waa confined chiefly to tho
Naval variety, a shy bearer but an ex
cellent variety. The St. Michael and
Mediterranean Sweet varietiea are bear

tha only cause for anxiety on the part
of growers now it In regard to tha price

sion was the **Old Guard," a company
organised Friday night, who turned out
in citizens dress, with canes, 127
strong. The appearance of the
several uniformed companies as well as
their excellence of drill was very notice
able. The Cleveland Cadets, ranging
from fifteen to eighteen years of age
were well up in drill and were highly
complimented by all. In passing hy
the otlice of T. Rowan, on Spring street,
where a magnificent pyrotchueih display

A year ago when I visited your beau

traveled over your county aud through
this lovely city, I was astonished at the
vast resources of your oounty. I said
then, and I repeal it now, the city of
Loe Angeles is destined to be a great
city, and your various industries, fertile
soil, together with your salubrious
climate, are attracting the attention of
the civilised world. Your vineyards
and orange groves alone (aside from
your many other attractions) have made
you the Kden of Calif orals. As a Call
forniaa I rejoice at your prosperity.
When east, representing you in the
National Democratic Convention, no
part of our great State was more in
quired about than Los Angeles, and I
took great pleasure iv sayiug tbat I
knew fro it personal observation tbat
nowhere in the world would a man with
energy and capital be better rewarded
by their aaa than here. Nowhere could
he find a brighter sky, a fairer land, or
a more hoauitable people.

should they net? Is it not upon ths
shoulders of their children that the bur
den of carrying on this government must
soon rest? I claim they are more inter
ested than any one else, as without
them we would not bo hero nor would
we need a government.
After twenty-five years of corrupt
rule, Ihe people have ngaiu an opportu
nity of turning those who now coutrol
the government, out of power aud tak
ing possession themselves. Twenty five
years without a change Is a long
time for auy party to control the
government, corrupt practices arebound
to grow up. Peculation in oflice, jobs
against tbe government, the use of offi
cial station to subserve private ends,
plundering the public troasnry by men
whose sworn duty was to protect it.
This at a time when the Nation was
staggering under tbe Incubus of an enor
mous pnblic debt, ought to cause the
people to pause and reflect and see where
such conduct will lead. Corruption
traced to the very door of the White
House. A mnn selected for the high
oflice of President who admits himself
lo ho a sharer of the spoils in a job to
plunder the government at a time when
he was drawing a salary to protect us
front the hand of public plunderers who
had fastened themselves on Congress;
while he was in the Speaker's chair his
ruling* were notoriously fur sale and at a
time when he was filling un office direct lv
line for the Presidency. Ha has grown
bold and brszen; and if tho people en
dorse bis conduct uo approprialion will
ever receive his sanction unless he first
knows what thera>is in it for him.
Should the Republican party through
its leaders steal or buy this election then
indeed do I fear that this great Repub
lic of ours, tbe wonder of the nineteenth
century, will decay ami fall to pieces by
its own rottonness, as did the republics
of old. No man can read the Mulligan
letters and say that Blame is an honest
man, nor can you point to any job to
rob tlie government but what you see his
tar murks in it. His elegant mausion at
Washington; his railroad lands, stolen
from yjur children; his railroad bonds,
obtained at the sacrifice of personal
honor; his millions of ill-gotten wealth,
obtained exclusively by standing in witb
with the rascals that were fattening
at the public crib, when he
was drawing v salary out of the public
treasury, supposed to be for services in
protecting the government, ought to
cause the blush of shamu to mantle the
cheek of every honest citizen. His pa
triotism was shown for his country in
the dark hours of the nation's existence,
wheu be hired a Democrat to do his
fighting while be stayed a safe distance
in the rear, forcing himself into fat gov
ernment contracts. His illustrious ex
ample in gettisg in on contracts was fol
lowed by Grant, who a sliort time since
was caught, and whose partners are now
lying in prison to answer for their crimes
in robbing individuals. Blame was too
smart for tbat; be tackled the govern
ment instead of private individual*, and
was safe as long as be aud his
gang con troled. Let there be a
change, and unless he and his gang
plead the statute of limitations
you will find tbat yon have not prison
room enough to accommodate all that
the Democratic party will send there.
But my Republican friends refusing
to discuss his official record in regard to
honesty and integrity, say that his
American Policy is grand; that when he
is elected (God forbid that should ever
be), an American citizen wilt be res pelt
ed abroad. He will see to it that no
wrong is committed against him. Talk
Is cheap. Republican platforms are
molasses to catch flies. When an officer
has had a chance to judgo him hy his
acts; that is fair, no one can complain
of it. Mr. Btaius has beeu Secretary of
State. He has had a chance to show
what he would do to compel other
nations to respect the rights of citizens,
aud what is his record? I speak from
it. On tbe 2£d of March, 1881, the
British Parliament passed a most outra
geous law, known as tbe Coercion Act,
which provided that any person who
was destraiued by warrant of the Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland to be reasonably
suspected of a crime, might be arrested
and legally detaiued until the 30th day
uf September, 1882, iv prison without
bail and should not be discharged on
trial by any court without the direction
of the Lord Lieutenant. It was not
necessary that there should be any act
charging the mun with crime. The
Lord Lieutenant's suspicions were
enough. The prisoner did not even
koow the specific acts complnined of.
He could not get a trial nor bail, nor any
relief without the consent of the Lord
Lieutenant. The act suspended the writ
of habeas corpus, tbe right to confront
your accuser at a speedy trial, lt was
a retroactive law, as it allowed arrests
.of suspects so-called, back to September
30, 1880 It was unconstitutional and
should not have been respected in Eng
land, much less in free America. Under
this despotic law several American citi
zens were arrested and thrown into
dungeons. Among them was Daniel
Sweeney, a worthy citizen nf San Fran
cisco, where he had lived for upwards
of twenty year*, aod where to bim and
his good wife eight native American
bora sons and daughters were born.
Tbe great American policy mau Blame,
was then Secretary of .state. He re
ceived a letter in his official capacity
advising that Daniel Sweeney, an Amer
ican citizen of twenty live years stand
ing iv the United Htates had, while vis
iting his native land snd while in deli
cate health, hal been torn from tbe
bosom of his family hy au armed force
aud lodgej in jail without even kuowing
what he was accused of. He demanded
a trial and if innocent be desired to Im
released at ait American citizen.
His wife also wrote claiming for her
hnsbaud and children the protection of
our government. She aaid her husband,
who was compelled for several hours In
the day to walk in cold damp mud. ankle
deep, would die unless soon released.
That her eight American-born children
would be orphaned and she a widow Un
less her guiltless hushiuid would be re
leased; that he had not committed auy
crime and in the name of decency, jus
tice and humanity she Itegged tbat our
government take action. Here was a
citizen of tbo United Stales innocent of
crime and being slowly murdered by the
British authorities; an I here was a
chance for Blame to show his grand
American policy. Of course I know
you expect mc to say he immediately
demanded tho release of Sweeny, and
failing iv this, war was declared with
Kugland. Not so. He said be
con Id not interfere, and so far
as he was concerned Sweeuey
conld get no relief. There is your
American Policy for yon. I say a Gov
ernment that would permit the above to
be done to ber citizens is not entitled to
the respect of any one.
The Democratic party is pledged to
•protect native or naturalized. It did so
when in power. Wheu Marcy was
Secretary of State, he was willing to
plunge the nation in blood before he
would allow tbe rights of native or
naturalized citizens to be trampelod on.
The tariff question was reviewed, also
the Sumptuary Legislation of the Re
publican party. Blame was shown to
be a Prohibition is t. He joined hands
with them in Maine, but was too
cowardly to vote himself, and dodged the
issue.
Grover Cleveland and Thos. A. Head
ricks, he reviewed their history and paid
a glowing tribute to them both.
He spoke of his experience iv the Chi
cago Convention, ami said that all the
great men of Ihe country said that Gro
ver Cleveland was tbe man abova all
others to nominate. The gallant Bayard,
the noblest Roman of them all, Allan G.
Tburman, McDonald of Indiana, Hoadly
of Ohio, and last, but not least, the pat
riotic Tilden, all earnestly supported
Cleveland. These great men knew what
they wera doing. The working men all
over the land are for Cleveland. They
know he is their friend.
Here Gen. Clunie explained his vetoes
and showed that they were right. He ]
said theAssociatedPi-esshadtelegrsnbetl
all over the country that ths Irish were
for Blame. When skating became fash
ionable iv the hot place, then the Irish
might desert the Democratic party. The
i Germans were for tha party because
they were a liberty-loving people. They
were opposed to sumptuary laws, and so
is the Domuciatic party.
The Republicans opened the campaign
last Saturday night. I was in Sacra -
mento. Coluuct Creed Hammond was
the speaker. He is an able and eloquent
geutlsman; but with all his eloquence
lm could not arouse auy enthusiasm. So
it is elsewhere. The Republican party
has outlived its usefulness. The honest
men aru leaving it like rats from a sink
ing ship. All over our great Common
wealth the Democratic party to-night
presents an unbroken front. The news
from Maine helps us, as it clearly shows
that the Republican party is the party
uf narrow ideas, aud a large lease of
power to theui w ill fasten their prohibi
tion ideas upon the oouutry, and the
great wine interest, the beer interest,
tbe con. interest will languish nntl die,
and gradually our rights will he
taken away from us. Tbe crank
ridden , States of lowa, Kansas
and others of tho great Western Stafos
are sulTering by the prohibition legisla
tion of the Republican party, but in
States where tho Democratic party is in
power tho largest liberty is allowed the
citizen. Aud in our own fair Stato we
have wiped from the Statute books the
laws that tskeawny from tbe citizen bis
right to do as lfe pleases, so long as he
does not interfere with bis ueigbltors.
In IH7U Hendricks was elected to the
office he is now a candidate
for and Governor Tilden was elected to
tbe Presidency. We have almost tho
same butt In over again; Cleveland rep
resents Tihleu and reform, aud with
Governor Hendricks wo have as near tho
old ticket as possible. There Is a retri
butive justice in their election to tbe
high oftices they have been nominated
for, aud the American people will see to
it that the great fraud of 1870 is wiped
out. Iv California, in our local affairs,
we as Democrats, may differ. All our
local misunderstandings must be buried
this Presidential year. Kvery man of
us must rally under the banner of Cleve
land and Reform. Wu must unite to
check the dowuwsrd career of the Re
pablic. Wu mast see to it that Del
Valle, your nominee for Congress, is
elected. I have known him long
and well. He has dove the State
good service iv the Assembly and Senate
and his promotion is just. No man oau
better represent tho interest of South
crn California than he. Your great in
terests demand that you shall have a
live man in Cougress, and Senator Del
Valle is that man. If I had my way
Los Angeles, today would have
had a Congressman-at-Large In the
person of Joseph D. Lynch. I was for
him two years ago, and if he had been
selected Los Angeles would have had a
friend to bet on, and her interests would
have been carefully guarded. Iv con
clusion, fellow-citizens, let ms urge, one
and all, by your votes, to teach tbe Re
publicans ihat what is left of the country
we want as a heritage for our children.
Let us show them by our votes they
have betrayed their trust, and an out
raged people yearn for vengeance. Let
us teach them thst the bloody chasm
they speak of Is not wide enough or
deep enough to engulf the lshors of tho
American people. Let us givotho power
to that party under which tbe country
prospered, and under which our terri
tory was acquired (exoept Alaska; they
got that for us.) Let ns return the gov
ernment to the honesty and. simplicty
tbat characterized it in tbe days of Jack
son and Jefferson. Wben tbis is done,
when the Democratic party assumes
power again then will arise the dawning
of a brighter era for the Republic, aud
onoe again we will be a happy and pros
perous people.
After a telegram from Santa Ana to
Jos. D. Lynch bad haen road to the
meeting aud stating that a Cleveland
aud Hendricks Club had been formed
there uuinbering 17 "' members, which
was cheered to tbe echo, Chairman
White introduced Hon. Charles Kohler,
Presidential Rieetor, who was enthusias
tically received by tbe great sea of peo
plo tbat completely packed Temple aod
New High streets for two bundled feet
from the rostrum, besides the crowd oc
cupying the platform and the club room
proper.
rohlik's speech.
Ladiea and Gentlemen ami fellow Dem
ocrat*; —I stand before you to-night like
the prodigal son. I will explain. I
came to this country, lauding in New
York thirty-four years ago. On my cer
arrival I inquired of some of my
countrymen who had preceded me
what party it was best to affiliate with
when I became a citizen. Tbey told me
the Whigs wanted me to stay here
twenty-one years before we could he
con if citizens; that the Democrats
would let us in a five years
when I at once bee .me a
Democrat in my sympathies before I
was entitled to a vote, and although I
could not vote at the Pierce election,
I won a hat ou his elevation to the
Presidential chair. Having left a
country where there were several small
governments, we thought a good strung
free government was the best and when
the war broke out we affiliated with the
Union, now the Republican party. We
soon gut tired of the false pledges of the
Repuulioau party after the war was over
and now, like the Prodigal son, are
within our father's house. Tbo people
of the old country were once like a man
with tight boots. Tbe country was too
pressing for thorn, when they came to
tbis country to relieve their corns and
get more room. The party who landed
on Plymouth rock did well for a time,
but like the negro slave-driver, made the
hardest kind of masters as they got
power. With them it became the case
of the tight boots, again with the people,
which drove people out of that country
to the West and South. New York set
tled by the Germans, Louisiana and the
lower Mississippi by the French, and
everything went smooth until the New
England men began to push their fanati
cal ideas on thu people.
If New England could be fenced iv
by lit r .elf with all her bigotry fur a
hundred years, the last one of them
would be iv Barnum's hands for exhibi
tion. The Republican party is in favor
of tariff for protection, but they did not
give it to us. They promised before
tbe lost election to protect the wine
Interest, but they forgot it as
they did all then* other pledges.
Tbeir last year's administration was
worse than auy that preceded it. Two
years ago tbe Democracy of tbis Sta c
passed a repeal of the puritanical law
that would not allow a roan to go to a
picnic on Sunday. The Democracy of
this State and the Union will extend all
the protection lint is necessary for the
beat interests of tbe country without fos
tering monopolies for the oppression of
tlie masses. The Republicans when we
ask them why they did not live up to
their promises on the tariff, said plat
forms were like molasses, to catch flies.
The Democracy have acted in good faith
with us by repealing sumptuary laws,
and you can rest assured that Cleveland
aud Hendricks will go to the White
House after this election with a hand
some majority.
Mr. Kohlsr bad a pleasant delivery and
as he has a host of old-time friends and
neighbors, was lustily cheered, aud wheu
he retired throe rousing cheers were
given for him and the ticket.
After music by tho band, amid loud
calls fur Del Valle, Stephen M. White,
Eg., in bis happy manner introduced
Senator Del Valle to the meeting, when
he was vociferously cheered.
MR. DEL VALLE
Said tbe lateness of the hour and the fact
that the grouud had been so eloquently
covered and tbe case so ably preeenWd
by Gtoeral Qeaie, it is utuK-oeseary for
me to weary you with a set speech. I
know you are tired. I know you are
proud of this maguUicent demonstration,
this spontaneous outlurst of tho
Democracy, and of the grand old party
i that you will s-arely carry ou to vwtory.
No other argument is necessary to the
thinking mau than the Democratic plat
form itself. There are issues 1 -1. mid
like to discuss, and want to do so fully
I at some other time, when you are nut
i ao weary. [Cries of go on 1 Tbo Re
t publican parta, have not been true
(o their word. They hnve been guilty
and as General Cluuie nays, you have
heen diveated of yuur heritage iv the
public lands by this party who now
promises so much just before the elec
tion. They huve given away the lauds
you should have now for yourselves and
your children, and what is worse given
them to combinations of corporate
power that would he your masters.
Look at the Uuitod States territory.
Bj what party was this v.ut domain ac
quired? It was acquired by the Demo
crstio party or uuder a Democratic ad
ministration. While wu acquired ths
lauds tho Republican party has hartun d
them away fur poll I tea I favors and the
patronage of wealthy corporations and
through a corruption that would bring
the blush tv an honest man if their
schemes were laid bare. What doe,
the Democratic party propose to do?
They will carry out their pledges to the
people in this campaign though the
tieavciis tall. Thu Duiuoeratiu party,
gentlemen, propose to get hack some td
these lands fraudulently ohtaiued from
you. The Republican parly gave you in
the person of dames 0, Blame a pro-
Chinese oaudidatc. If he should finally
settlo down tt would be a good plan to
move a lot of Chinese people around him
as neighbors aud associates. One of tbe
finest compliments to the Democracy of
this district is the scare tbe Republicans
have of my being clcoted to Congress.
They are badly worried. They instruct
their lieutenants to center their
forces on the Sixth District,
which I consider qaJte a compliment.
Some ol their papers bave misrepresented
me and I wsger the Democracy of Ljs
Angeles to lie on the alert for them. I go
north to-morrow to speak to the people
in the northern end ot this district for
Clevetund and Hendricks. Of my oppo
nent, Col. Markham, I have nothing to
say, further than, when a man becomes
a candidate for public position be must
have some claim of fitness for tbe posi
tion or some claim on the people. As
for myself, as most of you know, you
elected me to the Legislature in IHHO
and to tho Senate in IM. While Rep
resentative and Senator 1 huvehad the sat
isfacliou of voting live to ten thousaud
times, and there is not une vote I would
now recall or take back. What kind of
people or State is this that wants
a man for Congress who has
lived here five years and has
only lately been entitled to a vote by
being placed on the Great Register. A
Republican papor in tbis district, speak
ing of Del Valle for Congress, says he is
ouly five feet six inches in height, aud
only weighs 110 pounds. Cattlemen,
before 1 get through with them in this
campaign they witl think I weigh 200
pounds. They claimed Colonel Mark
hatn served his country as a soldier, and
I honor him for it. Tbey also sty he is
a miner. There are thousands of men in
this country who have all these quali
fications, but few of them ever asp re to
Congress oo these claims. I confesi I
am ambitious to go to Congress from this
district, aud I believe my experience in
Ugilsation will enable me to be of service
to my country and constituents. I
claim to have done something for
the veterans of tbe Mexican
and the late civil war by laboring for
and securing the passage of a hill in our
State Legislature for the Veteran's
Home. Four months ngo a bill passed
both Houses of Congress for these Vet
erans. As soon as 1 read the telegrams
announcing that the bill had been
brought np in Congress I sent the Sec
retary of the Senate a resolution in
structing our Senators to vote for the
Veteran's bill, which is now a law. Are
you going te take men you do not know
instead ot those whom you do know aud
have served you faithfully? There is in
San Francisco a mining bureau where
miners can have their ores assayed nnd
classified, which is a State institution
and one of great benefit in the way of
mining development in this State. Iv
s:t I introduced tho bill and worked
hard for it and the establishment of
this bureau. In relation to the
right made against me by some of the
Republican press. I thought here at
home it might be well to mention the
fact I was born hero and with God*
help I intend ta spend the sunset of my
life here. I am consequently native
horn. My father was born hero and re
presented his county in tho State Legis
lation. The privilege of being an
American citzen in this proud land of
ours and exercising tha rights of fran
chise is one of the greatest inheritances
of, and the Democracy propose to de
fend and perpetual our rights and
privileges as citizens, let it cost what it
may. Tho Democracy who elected a
President and Vice-President eightycars
ago, have to-night a better show than
before. The Republican party that have
been held together by a oohesive attrac
tion of spoils and corruption are rapidly
falling to pieces and will soon
be buried so steep they will not be res
urrected even when Gabriel's last
trumpet shall son id. I thank you,
gentlemen and ladies, for your coi dial re
ception aud patient attention, and will
close by saying, tnrn out on election day
and work early aud late for tbe election
of onr next President and Vico-Presi
dent, Cleveland and Hendricks. Bssustar
Del Valle was frequently interrupted by
tumultuons cheers and applause wbicb
showed the Little Giant from Los An
geles would be our next Congressmao
beyond a doubt. On his retiring from
ths stage cheer after cheer for tbe speak
ers and tbe ticket went np, when the
crowd cried wildly for White, Stephen
M. White, until he finally
came to the front and excused himself
by advising all to g> home and thank
Gud they were Democrat!, and pray for
the Repnblieans.when the largest politi
cal gathering that ever asscmhlcj in L*oa
Angeles dispersed rejoicing.
THE REPUBLICAN' RALLY.
The narrow space in frtyit of Boh
Eokert's saloon waa fairly filled by the
Republicans last n'ght, reinforced by
the uniformed and other clubs who, to
the number, in membership, of 302, had
defiled through our streets. The Hon.

the orator of the evening and he sroke
under the protecting auspices of the fob

Mr. Sargent, notwithstanding his
quarrel with Bismarck, wore a German
smoking cap. To aecommcHlate bis 100
utterly inadequate voice a sounding
board bad Wen deviaed. The result
wae that no oue who was removed to a
distance of four feet could hear a word
he uttered. After a great deal of rather
weak and draggling talk, Mr. Sxrgent
got down to the question of protecting
American labor, and he then became
positively pathetic to the two or three
rows that surrounded the stand. While
waxing eloquent on tbe rights of ths
American lahorer, he altogether omitted
to refer to an incident in his o»n career
iv SituraiiMuto, stuns fourteen years ago,
ia which he stood at tbe case ami set
type ia order tv sbat oat Amehcau
printers from their rightful wages. In
that episode of his career he proved to
be quito a* prgaorlpitlve us liismarck
was in the matter ot the American Hog.
Mr. Sargent war followed by tbe
Holy Tfogau, who claimed to have
been a Democrat all his life, or some
thing to that effect. As Orangeman and
North Country Irishman was written on
every lineament of the Holy Ifngan's
fascinating uountenance the audience
took his modest statement with 804
grains of salt.
The proceedings wcro wound up with
one Knox, who took an inane pride iv
the fact that the Repuhlicanspcakec had
exceeded the Democratic in prolixity.
A Triumph of Science.
By tho imitation of Mr. J. W. Brod
rick, a Hkkai.o reporter ye.tord.ay wit
nessed an exhibition of the new Hand
llreuade Kno Kxtinguiahor in front of
Temple Mock. A wooden chimney bail
lioen prepared and covered on the in
side witli petroleum. Kiro was then sot
to this most inflammable substance and
tho tlames bolohcd np tho Hue and set
the whole interior on tire, wheu Mr,
Wheeler throw oue of the Harden Hand
llreuadus into the i.Hiring flames. The
bottle or grenade hrnkc, and the enclosed
Ka.es extinguished the roaring flames in
side of four aeconda.
A second test was made of thia same
wooden Hume, nnil after it was well on
fire aud glowing with fi event bent a
grenade was burst at the base and in al
most a moment the fire was extingaiebed.
Tbe chimney was then opeoed, and
showed that it had been ontuely on tire
throughout.
Another test was then made of a pile
of kindling wood saturated with kero
sene, and placed against a wooden par
tition. When the tiro was under the
tieroest headway the grenades were
throwu nnd broken aud the tire was ex
tingnished inside of four secouds. This
in oh t remarkable feat was witnessed by
908 spectators, ami showed that every
household should bo prepared with this
engine for the suppression of tire.
Wheu the victims of coal oil explosions
are overtaken with fire, the true way of
escape seems to be tn break a ''Hand
Orenadc" and subdue the flame*. Tbe
effect is magical and interesting. Half
of tbe lirea that occur in this section
can be extinguished by these most valu
able bund grunades. Every bouse should
have them.
Tho Sau Bernardino Inttrx of Sep
tember I2tb says: Last night at
about 8 o'clock the small frame dwelling
aitnated on Fifth street, opposite the M.
K. Church South, took Arc and in a few
minutes was burned to tbe ground.
Tbe house wae owned hy Mr. C. A.
Collins, nnd at the time was ocoupied
by Mr. W, J. Wilsey anil family. Tho
origiu of the lire is not known, hut by
many it is thought to be tbe work of an
incondiary. The greater part of Mr.
Wilsey'a furniture was saved, bnt yet
his loss is finite heavy, as there waa
some five or six hundred dollara in cur
rency in the house. It is tbe opinion of
many that tho money was first stolen
and the house then set on fire. There
was no insurance on cither the house or

A Republican Grand Army Man Fires
Hot Shot Into Logan and Blaine.
The following letter has been sent by
Mr. il. C. Hunt, a member of the Grand
Army of this city aud a well-known Re
publican, to a friond, also a member of
the U. A. R.:
Deau Sir: I have been known to you
for many years as a most unaomprnmia.
ing Republican, and I am now going to
surprise you by stating that for the Hrst
time in my life I canuot support tbe
nominations of the Republican party.
If there is any orgaoi/.ition in the world
to which I am attached it is the Grand
Army of tbe Republic, and when I see
that they are trying to use it for purely
political and partisan ends, I believe it
la time for nn honest Grand Army man
to rebuke such attempt* to lead us
like cattle to tbe shambles by
either voting against the candidate or
ne-t voting at all. There is another
reason—two in faot. Onr party bas
nominated a man for Vice-President
whose record aa a Grand Army man is
not very creditable to our organization.
Ha was virtually expelled becauae he
thought ao little of it aa not to pay hia
dues. Then, again, for tbe first plane
on tbe ticket our party baa named a man
who haa been assailed as corrupt by the
very bnt elements ia that party; and
thia Very day there is no Republican
paper or orator to offer the slightest de
fense to the charges brought againat him.
Tberefire, for tbis election at least, I
shall vote for the reform Governor—

[From the Printers Boycotler.l
TLo candidate of the Republican party
seams to be peculiarly unfortuuate in
the selection of the newspapers which
advocate his election. If yon scratch a
Blame organ you will surely discover a
"rat" sheet. Kvery one of the leading
newspapers which support his candidacy
refuses to pay a fair day*" wanes for a

OUR NERVES.
Some Interesting Facte About These
Important Organs.
[WmaoVlphU Times.)
Tbe persons who are not familiar with
the structure of thu human body can
host obtain rational ideas of the nervous
system by comparing it to the electric
apparatus in common use for communi
cating between distant points. Herein
flte nerve centers, the brain, spinal cord
and nervous ganglions are regarded as
batteries or telegraph oflices, aud the
nerves as the wires that complete tho
circuit. Insulated wires, such as are
used for submarine telegraph cables,
illustrate especially well the distribution
ot the uervo elements. The life work
of these orguns is not shown by post
mortem studies, consequently we do net
know what changes, if any, occur In the
nerves during the transit of nervous im
pulses.
Many persons appear totally uncon
soious of the existence of their nerves,
and these persons arc very fortunate, for
on all sides complaiuts of nervousness
are heard, and the extraordinary preva
lence of nervous diaonh trt n .wadays can
scarcely have escaped the notice of even
a casual observer. Nei vousaee*. is essen
tially a loss of power hi the nerves, and
according to the author of
''American Nui-voiisriess," this were
much totter expressed n*rv*U«suess.
Tbe symptoms of tbis are well knowu
to most people. At all events the per
sons who are restless, who have flushes
of beat, whose heart palpitates on the
slightest excitement, and those who
have twitehings of tbe muscles of vari
ous parts of the body and divers other
vugue and transient sensations of liko
character, invariably call themselves
"nervous," likely enough for want of a
better word.
The causes of tho complaints just
named have been detailed at great
length. inheritance, indigestion, at
mospheric conditions and the exactions
of modern life are, however, worthy of
•special note in this particular. Inher
ited uervousnoss is explained readily
enough by the old saying, "like father,
like son," and it is not improbable that
achildwhohad not inherited this dis
position, but who was so unfortunate as
to l>e surrounded by nervous persons,
might easily be inclined that way.
How indigestion may cause Nervous
ness is well shown by the following
from a well known writer on the subject,
who said: "Though there may be much
force in tbe nervous system, yet if di
gestion be clogged aud waste matters
suffered to accumulate in the digestive
apparatus and circulate through the ncr- .
vous system, the amount of force gener-'
atedaud usable will be much diminished.
Under these circumstances we may sup
ply food, and the best of food, In any
amount, aod the person will still be fee
ble." "We are nervous,"says the same
writer, "because tbe rapid evaporation
in onr dry outdoor air anil in our over
heated rooms heightens the rapidity of
the processes of waste and repair in the
brain and nervous system, and because
of the exhausting stimulation of alterna
tions of torrid beat and frigid cold, and
tbis nervousness is increased by the streea
of poverty, the nrgency of finding and
holding means of living, tbe scarcity of
inherited wealth aud tbe just desire of
making and maintaining fortunes."

[Albany Vox. lloaton Heiald.]
The closest estimate of the number of
German Toten in this State ia between
90,000 and 100,000, of whom it is cus
tomary to count from 60,000 to 70,000
Republicans. By way of rough estimate,
based, however, ou tendencies that hare
already become clearly defined, the ac
tual result of tbe canvass may he put aa
follows:
Garfield's rote ia 1880 555,000
Deduct Independents.. 40,000
Prohibitionists 30,000
Butler Republicans.... 10,000— 80,000
Blame on basis of 1880 475,000
Hancock vote in 1880 535.000
Add Independents 40,000
575.000
Deduct Butler Democrats. 50.000
Cleveland, on basis of 1880 525,008
Tbe Greenback vole in 1880 waa 12,
--000. Ou the basis of the vote of 1880,
therefore, the vote of tha State would
stand:
Cleveland 625,000
Blame 475.000
Bntler 72,000
St. John 30.000
At the normal rate of increase, aboat
120,000 6rst votes will be polled tbis
year, bringing tho total vote up to 1,«
I 225,000.
The Temeculs Land and Water Com
pany.
Mr. W. K. Robinson, Secretary of the
Temecula Land and Water Company and
of the Temecula Fruit Laud Company,

us that the subdivision of the land is ac
tively going on under Surveyor Sanford
and party, who will have the work com
pleted ou or before the 10th instant,
when the lands will be jut upon

lars have been paid on the fourteen
thousand acre tract of Juan Murrieta,
on which the surveying is now
being done. The Temecula Fruit Land
Company represents the Pujol tract, of
38,000 acres, of which a large portion
can be irrigated. The articles of incor
poration, bonds, etc., will be bled within
a few days. The directors of the com
pany are H. B. Lash lee, President; Rev.
O. C. Welles, Vice-President; Charlea
Charnock, Tr%surer; W. X Robinson,
Secretary, aud'C. L. Morrill, agent at
Temecula. Money is already subscribed
to erect a 110,000 hotel and a nice de
pot, work on which will begin at
ouce.— San Diego L'nion.
What Caused the Red Success.
The Denver Reporter says: The red
sunsets of some time ago hare at laat:
been solved. Our reporter returned thia
morning from a flying trip to Gunnison
country. While there he found the
top of the snow on the ranges as red aa
if sprinkled with red pepper. Being
supplied witb chemicals aud a blowpipe,
outfit he was enabled to make a test,
and found it to be meteoric iron. It
could not have been washed from a
mountain, as it was oa top of the raage>
aa welt as lower down, ami only on the
sarfaee of tha now. Upon diagrissjt
down a few inches the snow was clear
asd white. The sun shinim; through
this ozide of iron made its rays red, gt>
ing the same effect a* a piece ol rsssV
glass. The dust fell over the entire
earth, but invisible except where caoghft
by the perpetual snow on the mountains.
A young lady in Ulster County, If.
V., called at a lawyer's office in Kings
ton the other day and asked to have
suit begun against a former lover for
breach uf promise. "Ha promised to
marry me four times,'' said she, "but hey
hasn't kept bis word, and my affection*
are all blighted."' "How much damage
do yon wish to claim?" asked the polite
lawyer. "W*-U ! waa blighted tear
times, and I think 3100 a blight is nests*
too much.'' So suit was entered at $400)
for four blights.
