Jordan, Speaker of Ihe Assembly : "Dear Sir—Herewith I tender my resignation as Assistant M'nute Clerk of the Assembly. Iv doing so I desire to reiterate tbat I am entirely innocent of the charge preferred against me. Re spectfully, etc. Ray G. Falk." A motion to! accept the resigna tion was defeated. Young, of Sac ramento, thou offered a ri solu tion reciting that as Ray Falk had not appeared before Ihe bar of the Houae to receive a reprimand, tbat be be dismissed from bis position of Assis tant Minute Clerk. The motion waa lost. Silence ensued for a moment. It was broken by the Speaker's command: "Tbe Sergeant-at-Arms will produce Mr. Ray Falk before the bar of thia Houae." Falk, who was in the lobby, walked up the aisle. The Speaker, standing in his place, delivered tbe reprimand. Speaker Jordan said: "Mr. Falk, this Houae baa imposed upon the Speaker the moßt disagreeable duty of bis life. At the commencement of this session of the Legislature you were selected to fill the omca of Minute Clerk of tie House, and you were selected to that position because we tbi.light you both capable and honest. Not long after rumors were circul ited that you hsd beon guilty of tamp-ring with the records of tbe House. A Com mittee waa appointed, who made a care ful, patieut and lengthy examination of the charges. You were cited before them, you appeared and gave your testi mony. After can fully sitting all the evidenoe, the Committee held you unani mously guilty of having w Ifully and wrongfully attempted to alter the posi tion of bills upon the file of this House. Tbey have made their report, aud the Houao baa coucurred therein. The Committee recommended tbat you be removed from yonr position aud dismissed from tho service of | this House. Out of kinknesa of heart of tbe membtra your punishment has been modilied from dismissal to a reprimand by the chair. I am not un mindful at this time of the fact that you are a young man, nor that, in common with most young men, you are looking forward toward the ftiture; that you are building hopes upon that future; that you look forwurd to it as having in store for you many pleasures. I am not un mindful eithtr.of tbe fact that, even at thia moment, o kind and loving wife, upon her bed of aicknesa, is turning her thought 3 aul heart toward you. Though mindful of the facts and strongly moved by them to cause you aa little pain as I may; yet, I cannot forget the fact tbat you are arraigned, not only at the bar of this House but at the bar of tho Common wealth, for having committed a high crime. lam not unmindful of tbe fact that you have been found guilty of will fully and wrongfully attempting, at least, to tamper with the public records of the highest body ha the Common wealth; that, bad you succeeded in car rying out your design concerning those files, some of the most aacred righta of the people would have been truatrated; and, therefore, I admonish you now that in all your future you carry the memory of thia mistake, if mistake it was, in your mind. Let it not crush you, but rather let it be a lesson that will keep you away from the rocks of temptation—far away from the patha of evil-doers and lead you into an upright and proper life, where you may in future receive the good wishes and bene dictions of your followmen. You may now take your seat at the desk." Falk -walked up to hia deak, and the regular business was proceeded with. INCORPORATED. |Jl Steam Railroad Company to Operate in Mexico.

STRIKES IN PENX SYLV AM A. , A Negro Murderer Hanged With out Ceremony by an Infuriated 1 Missouri Mob. Associated Press Dispatches to the Hp.tt.tL>. Wamiinoto.n, March 7.—A decision was rendered to-day by tbe United States Court in the case of Thomas Baldwin, plaintiff in error, vs. J. C. Franks, United States Marshal, in error, carried up from tbe Uuited States Cir cuit Court of California. The case pre :»< nt» a phase of tbe Chinese question and invokes tlie rights of the Chinese, uuder the Federal law. On tbe 17th of February, IS.SG, Baldwin, the plaintiff iv error, and other citizens iv tlie mining town of Nicalaus, Sutter couuty, Cali fornia, drove out of that town wiih force and violence a number of resident Chinese, by placing them on board of the ■ teamboat Barge, plying on the Feather river and sending them ont of tho limits of tbe town at.d county. Bald win was arrests 1 under a wan.in t issued.by the Commissioner of the Cir cuit Court, charging bitn with having entered iuto a conspiracy with corta v othi r persons to deprive these Chinese ot tho equal protection of Ihe law, and of equal privileg-s and Immunities un der such laws. Baldwin applied to tbe Circuit Court for li is discharge upon a writ of habeai corpus, but it was re fused und ho appealed to tho United States Suprome Court, upon tho ground tbat the cburge roado agiiurt him waa not sufficient to justify his detection. The Ju Igcs iv the Circuit Court were divided in iheir opinion as lo the fol lowing question: 1. Whether tbe conspiracy which r. - suited in tho expulsion of toe Chinese from Niooltna, in the manner set forth in the record, was an offense in viola tion of section 5519, of the United States statutes, and if so whether tha section, as applied to such a state of fa' ts, is constitutional. 2. Whether the acts charged againat Baldwin and his fellow conspirators con stituted an offense within the meaning of section 5508 of tbe Revised Statutes, and if so whether that section is con stitutional. 3. Whether such acts, so performed, constitute an offense within the meon ing of that clause (section SSM of the Revised Statutes) which makes it au offense to persons to conspire by force to prevent, binder or delay Ihe execu tion of any law of the United States, and if so whether that section is con stitutional. The Court in a long and elaborate opinion by Chief Justice Waite held that the United States un doubtedly has the power to provide for the punishment of those who are I guilty of depriving Chinese subjects of I sny rights, privileges, immunities or ex emptions, guaranteed them by treaties. After reviewing carefully in the light of previous decisions all tho questions raised by the case the Court reversed the judgment of tbe Court below, which deniod the prisoners petition for release on habeas corpus and remanded the MHO for further proceedings. Justices Field nnd Hirland dissented. IIAII.KOAD STISIK.ES. Industries in Pennsylvania ■Slidl jr Crippled.

Washington, March 7. —The Signal Service is likely to be eaily pinched by the failure of the General Deficiency Appropriation bill. The most Berious consequences of the failure of the bill, perhaps, will be the discontinuance of storm warninga, oold waves, etc., at a number of important points, owing to the failure of the item appropriating $18,000 for telegraphing and report ng these warninga. So noarly exhausted is the sum now available for this purpose that a heavy cut must be made in tbe service at a very early day. A Ilrlblng Sergeant-at-Arms. Denver, Col., March 7.— W. H.

Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald Bkrux, March 7.—The KoHnischr Zeitung warns Russia that even German patience towards neighbors has its lim its, and says: "If Russia compels Ger many to take account of the Franco- Russian agreement, let her beware lest she may herself have to consider a hos tile Germany." The Kreuzer Zeitung says: "Letters from St. Petersburg state that general hatred of Germany and popularity of France are becoming a sort of violent epidemic in Russia." EUPGHOB WILLIAM. Convinced of the Pacific Dlvpo.l. "There is a large tract of laud lying east, south and aouthweat of Santa Ana, embracing 7000 acres of land, knowu aa tbe Moist belt, where the water rises to withiu a few feet of the surface. Yet corn is grown in immense qualtiea, yielding 73 to 100 bushels per acre. All or nearly all of tbe fodder or milk-pro duciug plants are at hoi-.ro in almost this entire belt, blowing we lls are abund ant. What is wanted is some of our enterprising farmers to take these lauda in baud, but iv things as they aro doing very extensively in the Middle States, or iv the same manner as they do in France or Italy, aud I might say, many other provinces thut I visited in my rambles in foreign countries. Our climate is far more uniform thau the Italian climate. I spent one winter there and kept the record. The temper ature thus fur iv this valley is as follows: At 6 A. M., 40 degrees above zero; 12 M., 68 degrees; at 6 I. If., 46 degree.-. This is the 17th day of January, 1887, this being the lowest thus far, und there has beeu but a night variation for the past seven years. Cows are grazing in alfalfa up to their eyes at tbia date." tlon of the Pope. Berlin, March 7.—Emperor William yeaterday received Herr Wcdel Piedoriff, President of tho Reiohstsg. In the oonversation which took place the Em peror said that he was reluctantly com pelted to dissolve the late Reichstag, despite his explanation to the Reichstag of the snperiority of Ihe Germans over their neighbors in military matters. The opposition, being in the majority, re fused to sanction the military bill to a ncctssery extent, and a reasonable hope that the septennate term would have been adopted after the example given by France bad proved fallacious. It was more gratifying now to cherish the hope that a large majority in the new Reichstag would accept the bill at the outset. Referring to the attitude of tbe Pope during Jthe elections, he said thai he had already been convinced of tbe paoific disposition of His Holiness, and that it was on this account tbat Ger many bad asked bim to aot as arbitrator in the dispute with Spain about the Caroline Islands. In conclusion the E.nperor expressed the hope that all ecclesiastical trouble between Prussia and the Vatican would be peacefully and completely settled. THE BULUARIA MUUDI.E. The tier man Consul Will Not Sur render the Ulan. Sofia, March 7.—The German Consul at Ruatchuk, whose 'protection was sought by Captain Ballman, one of tbe leaders in the recent revolt, who claimed to be a Russian subject, has been re quested by the Bulgarian authorities to surrender the refugee. He baa refused on the ground that bis Government has not instructed bim to do so. Berlin, March 7.—Much anxiety ia felt here as to whether or not the Rua sian government will allow the execution of tbe Bulgarian conspirators to pass unnotioed. Land can be bought at from $20 to $60 per acre withiu ten miles of Santa Aua, but the beat is the cheapest in the end if it cost $100 per acre. Un suoh land milk proaucing material can be planted and gathered every day of the year. If, as a starting point, 100 acres be bought, then 80 should be planted with alfalfa, an iuvaluablo feeding plant, aud ia at home iv our soil aud climate. [As a sample of the productiveness of altalfa I would state hut one acre has yielded me twelve tuns per year lor several years, it having been cut eight times, from March to Decem ber; and with greater care might have been cut ten times]. Eighty acres hav ing been planted as we have said, ten more should be sown to wheat or barley in early winter, for hay. The wheat be ing taken off the stubble should be turned uuder and two and oue half acres planted with pumpkins at once, the same amount of land being planted in the same manner in June, und twice tbat amount in July for winter and spring feeding. As aoon as the lirst crop of pumpkins haa been gathered, sow the and thickly with corn in drills. Ninety acrea being taken up in this way the next should be devoted to beets, plant ing in succession, aa advised for pump kins. Thus, the land is kept busy, aa it were, producing milk-making material all tbe time. 'The average crop of pumpkins may be stated at 20 tona per acre, aud of beeta 40 tona. Alfalfa ahould be cut when in bloom, and corn wben the ears are "iv the milk." Late planted pumpkins will keep until spring, or even early summer. Beets contain more nourishing material tbe first year, although I have found those of the second year to be very good for atock. "I. tbink I am safe in saying tbat 125 cows and two spana of horses cau be kept In tirat-rate condition on 100 acres of good land—treated aa above recom mended. It is a good plan to have two corrals supplied with feeding rucks, these can bo used alternately, turn ing tbe stock from the one with empty racks into tbe one where tbe racks hive been tilled. Perphaps it might be well to plant about three acres with trees. The pepper aud tbe eucalyptus, or gum, are both suitable for this purpose, being evergreens, and a pltasant shelter for stock because in sects avoid them. They are rapid growers, and it is well known tbat tbey have some effect upou tbe atmosphere, which prevents both man and beast from being attacked by foyers. Therefore there need be no fear of tbe "milk fever," which ia so prevalent in theKiat ern Slates of the country. Stock are not disposed to eat the leaves ol these trees, but protect themselves from flics under their drooping brancbea. A plentiful supply of pure water ia absolutely necessary for dairj • stock, ami so are buildings for shelter and tbe proper care of milk. Milk of the first quality and in large quantities can only be obtained from a co« on whoso comfort you bestow great care; keep her quiet aud make her comforta ble and she will repay you well. Our climate being so uniformily mild and green food always to be obtained, it ia found that the aupply of milk given by a cow ia more constant than in climates subjtct to great change and where much of tbe food must be given in a dry state. Not only is the supply mora constant, but tbe quality is better. I visited L. A. Carey's heard of fifty cows a few days since, and in a conver sation with him on the aubject he said: 'It is my opinion that we iv this local ity (uearSauta Ana) can raise aa much good butter and cheese-producing food on one acre as they cau in tbe Eastern States on live acres.' Mr. Cary ought to know, he hav ing been in the dairy business in New Jersey for several yeara. His father re marked ; 'I suppose there is not a apot on thia green earth better adapted to the production of butter and the manu facture and curing of cheese than ia Los Angeles county. And,' he continued, 'it will be gen erally admitted that the cheese made by Mr. 11.ashman, of Compton, is equal in quality to any made in the Eistern States, and it is my opinion that Santa Ana is more favorably located for tbo curing of cheese than Compton.' " Sofia, March 7. —Baron Thielman, German Cousul-General, on behalf of Russia has demanded tbe releaae of Ihe six rebels (two of whom have already been shot). The Porte has advised tbe Government to deal leniently with the rebels. IN THE It KICKS TAG. The Scpteunate mil to bo Dis cussed.

Tbe bill will be taken np for a second reading to-morrow and a debate will enßue. Herr Windhorst, lead»r of the Clerical party, will then declare his intentions in relation to tbe Septennate term. Other party lenders have an nounced that they will vote aa tbey did when the bill waa defeated iv the late Reichstag. Declines Promotion. Paris, March 7. —The Fiya.ro states that on a plea of ill health, Monsignor Rampolli del Tinnaro, Nuncio at Mad rid, has declined tbe Papal Secretary ship, made vacant by the death of Car dinal Jacobini. Scared Boulfacea. | iNice, March 7. —In consequence of tbe pauio caused by tbe recent earth quakes, hotel keepers here are selling out at a great sacritice. Many of the inhabitants are still camping out. The Southern Pacific Company has a station forty-two milea eaat of Loa An gelea, called Cucamonga. Two and a half miles north of this atation, up on the high mesa, is a settlement with a church, rchool-house, stores, telephone and poatottioe, called Cucamonga. The Atchiaon, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad haa graded and laid a track near this settlement and will erect a depot in tho center of the rancho. But the trouble now is to lind a name for tbe station. With tbe name of tbe settle ment and postoffice Cucamonga, it would uatuarally seem tbe proptr thing to name the station Cucamonga, but tbe Atchison, Topeka and Sauta Fe Com pauy state that to have two stations of the same name would lead to endless complications in tbe shipment cf freight from other places. Two stations of the same name within two miles of each other wcuid cause many disappoint ments by misdirection of property and disappointment of passengers in being left at the wrong station by getting on the wrong train. The only way out of tbe trouble ia lo give tbe new station a new name. North Cucamonga baa been suggested as tbe proper nomenclature, but tbat is considered too long. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe company suggest the name ot Marcellina, alter Claudius Marcellua, the great Roman general, who used to defeat Hannibal, the great Carthaginian captain. The name ia eu phonious, but the fate of Marctllus is not pleasant to contemplate, as he was slain by his enemiea. Then there was Marcellus, a Pope of Rome, who only lived twenty-two days after his election. Why not name tbe place Hellrran, af ter Mr. [. W. Hellman, tbe President of tbe company. The Carthaginians can never get away with bim by leading him into an ambush. He has proved on many occasions that— "Peace hath Its victories no less renowned than war."

Editor Herald— The man who haa a home aud a wife, mother, sister or other kindred to nurse him aod minister to his needs and wants, when he is sick or otherwise physically disabled, is indeed fortunate. To one who is homeless and Lmi arly afflicted, an invalid hospital ia a blessed home of rest. It was my hap. py lot, on coming to your city, soma weeks ago, worn weary aud sick, to be placed in St. Viucent's Sanitarium—the Sisters' Hospital. Iv my walks through its long and wile corridors, in and out many of its rooms, and iuquiring into tbe general management of this noble insti tution, I was enabled to, at least, judge for myself of its merits. Everything m and about it moves with the moat precise exactness, and with .perfect order and regularity—no noise, no confusion, noth; ing harsh or discordant. No partiality ia shown to any one; all are treated alike, no matter whether Pagan, Jew or Gen tile. The prices are so adjusted that ihe poor man is accommodated in jnat proportion to the rich. The rooms are large, well lighted nnd ventilated, the furniture neat, and the beds marvels of cieanlmesß. Tbe table is excellent. When the already elegant grounds sur rounding it are rrore elaborately adorned and cultivated—a work now in progress-* and tbe two wings in contemplation are added, it will be the moat complete, aad by far the largest hospital on the coast. Here then, we beheld a practical illus tration of oue of tho many fruits ol a benibcent Christian civilization. How sharp ia the contrast between it and the boasted civilization of an i Christian pagan heathen classic times! Let us compare a little, tier "by their fruits shall ye know them." Take fur example the renowned city ot Athens, thu very cradle of philosophy, the fountain head of art, eloquence and learning. The student of tbe "academy," sitting under the teachings of a Plato or an Ai Utotle, walking in meditation through tbe "ocadi my groves," or standing on tbe hill of the "Acropolis," no doubt often looked ou*, in wonder and admiration, over tbe queenly, beautiful city; at its arches, columns, palaces and temples, its gorgeously magnificent villas, its gar dens and groves, adorned with fountains and statues, but bis eyea rested not on a single asylum or hospital. What is tbe outlook there now ? The school) of philosophy closed—adjourned sine die — '2000 years ago. The academy no longer exists, and arch and column, palace aad temple are tottering to ruin in an almost voiceless solitude. Come down now, from the palmy days of Paganism, to the dawu of the new era, when "Tha Man of Sorrows" founded the system from which havo sprung so many insti tutions of benevolenoe, charity and mercy. Look along the oourse of the ceuturiea, down which Chriatiauily is making her long, ceaseless, tireless march. In every city where the cross is planted arise 'schools and colleges of Christian learning—of Christian philoso phy, churches, asylums and hospitals for tlie aiik, lame, blind, aged, and help less infants and orphans. Wbere can we ti id tbe slightest traces of such institu tions under Pagan civilization! Not one ever existed. Cease then, ye shallow philosophers—ye modem skeptics, eeaas your idle, aenselesa talk and scnbblinga about what you derisively term "Chris tian superstition." Go and view tbe crumbling edifices, mouldering relies of your dead Pagan civilization. Look on its grave and bedew it with your briny, crocodile tears. Christianity wi.l flour ish with undiminished splendor and vigor, ages and agss after the name* of Plato and Aristotle are forgotten, aad Paganism's grandest monuments are dust. Homeless Wanderer.
