We find tbe following in tbe Express •f yesterday: It was discovered yesterday tbat the city street department was doing some work of repairing on Temple street and Temple road that should have been done by tbe Temple-street Cable com* pany. The railroads, under tbe law, are required to keep tbe streets in repair between the tracks and for two feet out side of the tracks, but some of the city employees were found to be putting in gravel and repairing all parts of the street. As soon as the street superin tendent's attention was drawn to it the work was confined to the city's part. Street Superintendent Watson explained that some new men had gone to work out there and had made the repairs gen eral without knowing any belter. Ihe work had been done unknown to him self or the cable people. Deputy Biggs eaid tbat not exceeding half a dozen loads of dirt had been nut on the rail road's territory, and tbat the latter promptly offered to do as much work for tbs city with its own men to make up for tbe mistake of tbe green hands. Street Superintendent Watson evinced considerable caloric today over the way in wbich the Herald reters to tbe mat ter. He said tbat because be went into the office as a Demoorat tbe Herald tried to control him and make him ''divvy;" and when it found that it couldn't do so tbat paper attacked him maliciously on many oocaaiune. ia i« noderstood the Taxpayers' Protective league was instrumental in calling at tention to the city employees doing work belonging to private parties. In the classic language of Mr. Waokel ford Hqneers of Dnheboy'e Hall fame, "Here's richness lor you." Because tbe Herald, true to its mission, exposes the shortcomings of S.inerintendsnt Wat son's office, that individual ia repre sented by the Express as saying that tbis journal, because be was elected as a Demoorat, tried to "divvy" with him. If this derelict official ever made nse of such an expression be lied. He should long ago have been removed from his offioe for scandalous delinquencies, and below we enumerate some of them aa found by tbe grand jury : In a partial report made by tbe grand ury of Loa Angelea county May 10th last they devoted nearly the entire re port to the administration of Street Su perintendent Watson's office. They refer to the shortage found in the office and the claim by Superin tendent Watson that $878.40, alleged to have been left in the office by Superin tendent Hutchinson, his predecessor, was not so left. In commenting upon tbe dispute between these two officers tbey cail attention to tho danger of aucb a loose conduct of tbe office. Referring particularly to the manage ment o! the office by Superintendent Watson the grand jury said that com petent engineers under their instruc tions had made examinations of Btreete eonßtrncted and approved by the super intendent, and had in no case found them constructed according to specifica tions. The work on various streets so examined 1b given with details, the most striking delect being shortage oi gravel amounting in every contract to a considerable percentage of the coat. They found cute where sidewalks were 10 to 11 feet wide instead of 12, and cases where street assessments were compro mised with property holders, in one of tbem an assessment of $1700 being com promised for $700. Referring to the embezzlement of pub lic funds by Watson'B chief deputy, Stewart, the grand jury found tbat tbat embezzlement caused the keeping ot a proper oash book, but tbat there is soarcely any record of other business done; that there is no system of books kept in the oflice, although the charter clearly provides for it. The grand jury also found that at least one laborer with a team paid fifty cents a day for a six months' position, amount ing in all to $7S, and that other money was collected from employees by depu ties, and that Mr. Watson admittod that be bad known of the procesdiug and ■till retained the guilty deputies. The grand jury recommended that no money be handled in this oflice, and tbat the street superintendent's office be made a division of the city engineer's department. And more to the same purport. When Join Ericaßon designed the first ironclad war vessel, the little Monitor of imoenshable renown, he little dream.-d that the very next practical teat of iron warships would come from two Mongolian nations. It is more than thirty years since the great battle of Hampton roads, daring whioh time no civilized nation has given to the world anything like a practical test of the modern line-of-battle ship or tbe armed crnissr. The lesson tbat comes to us from the encaruadined waves oi Corea is none the less wholesome when its source is considered, but wbioh of the great enlightened nations has already begun to take advantage of the tuition? A GREAT CITY EMERGING. For now thia long time past it haa been fatbionabla for tha Loa Angeles Times to talk about the superiority of San Pedro to Santa Monioa as tbe place lor a deep sea harbor on tbe southern coast. This kind of twaddle is simply remarkable (or its ceaseless iteration— in fact, we may olaim tbat we have been treated to a damnable iteration in this line. What are the facts? We will pass many of these for the time being. We shall embody many of tbem in the Sunday iesne of tba Herald, in which we shall publish the report of the celebrated engineer, Mr. £. 8. Cor thell, who is one of the most distin guished specialists in his line in the whole world. Mr.Cortbell's exhaustive report will speak for itself, and we shall add some editorial comments founded npon local experience to its luminous exposition. For the present we shall apply our selves to an editorial which appeared in tbe columns of our esteemed contempo rary, the Los Angeles Times, in its issue of yesterday. Of course this article was in line with the usual hebetudinous at titudes of its editor. Homebody or ottier, early in tbe day, loaded up this puissant editorial person with tbe idea that, somehow or other, he conld spite somebody or other by advocating tbe claims ol Stn Pedro as against those of Santa Monica. We utterly repudiate tbe idea tbat tbe engaging Dick Kerens and tbe robust 8. B. Eikins, gentlemen who are supposed to be largely interest ed in the Terminal railway, have had anything to do, by tbe profuse distribu tion of stook, in the marked prefereuce of tbe Times for San Pedro. God forbid that we sbould insinuate anything that we can't prove. But putting to one side the motive of the Times, in show ing such an illogical preference for San Pedro, and suoh a rabies against Santa Monica, we shall simply apply ourselves to the extraot from the artiole from tbe Ban Francisco Call, whioh our contem porary makes the basis for its usual in anities. Saya th* o*ll, speaking of the ap proaching Visit of tbe sub-committee on commerce to form an intelligent judg ment on the site for the looation of a deep sea harbor: The t«o locations speak for them selves, bnt there are other considera tions than those of topography and hydrography. Tbe railroad will un doubtedly advance plausible argu ments that commercial connections will batta» vSaetad at Santa Monica. Tbe committee s>*>»«aM bo «*- .t,* .l. commercial connections are essential to the w jlfare not of the people, but of the Southern Pacific. At Santa Monica it can monopolize those connections —at Hut Pedro it must share them with other transportation agencies. Tbat is the case in a nutshell. How there ii certainly an air ot great wisdom about tbia utterance of the Call. The writer moat remarkably resembles tbe individual of whom Shakespeare wrote— His face doth cream and mantle like a stand ing pond, Aa T?ho aliould say, "I am Blr Oracle, and when I ope my mouth let no dog bark." It ia ningular what an intereat the newapapera, the boards of trade and chambers of commerce of Han Francisco take in having the right deep aea har bor for Loa Angelea. In our Sunday issue we shall have much more to aay about tbia, with detailed referencea to the offioial declarations of thoae bodies. And how muoh they love us, these people of San Franciaoo? How Bolici tous they would be to have us make no mistake aa to just how we should gain great eminence as a city ? Not for the world would they have ua do anything ; that would prevent ua from attaining a commercial equality with or aupremacy to themselves. It is the old story of dona ferenks over again—the old, old story oi the Trojan horse. They calcu late greatly on our stupidity, and for tunately they calculate in vain. For every man of sense knows that if Santa Monica is selected as the place tor the deep sea harbor by the senate com mittee there will be a city ol Los Angelea reaching from here to the sea, and that it will be tbe moat unique and beautiful city on the footstool, with Santa Monica as its water front. It is suught to pre vent this ideal consummation by twad dle about the Southern i'acihc company owning aud controlling the Santa Mon ica water front. This is stuff and non sense. The Southern Pacific railway owns ten times aa much of the water front of San Pedro as it does of Santa Monica. The Santa Fe road extends to 3anta Monica; and the officials of the Southern Pacific railway, from Mr. C. P. Huntington, through all its controlling ipirits, have repeatedly offered to give any other railway corporation equal privileges with it«elf. if the United States shall expend large sums of money in creating a deep sea harbor at the city by tbe sea it goes without saying that the government will see to it that all competing railways Bhall bave an equal show before it spends a cent. Meanwhile, there is one thing tbat nobc d.' can deny, and th»- is that the whole trend of the beautiful City of the Angela ia towards Santa Monica. West ward the tide of empire holds its way, iv Los Angeles aa in all growing cities. Settlement is creeDing out towards the Gahuenga foothills and irom the Cien ega and from all points. Soon an elec trio railway will reach tbe beaoh at Santa Monica, and yearly thousands of Eettlers, with beautiful and productive homes, are bridging tbe space between the two cities. Soon they will be united by a marriage which will matte the t»ain one, and nothing can separate thiß auspicious and indissoluble union. LOS ANGELES HERALD SATURDAY MOR:NTNTI, SEPTEMBEP ?9, 1894. It is manifest destiny, and tbe senatorial committee will see, with oleaf* vision, the inevitable, and give to tbe union the sanction and benison —in tbe form of liberal appropriations—that will be the guarantee tbat another great commer cial emporium has been born on the rim of old ocean. THE AMERICAN NEGRO. Some good eastern people aro engaged in reviving tbe old Liberian colonization scheme under a new name, with a view of deporting to Africa so large a portion of the colored population in the south as to render impossible the war of raoea which now seems to be impending in that section. Tne natural inorease in the negroes since the emancipation is the prime root of all this evil. The negro's brutal natnre and bis readiness to resort to violence are at the bottom of the trouble. So long as the negro was a slave, such a thing as in decent assault npon defenseless women was unknown. Just aa soon as the emancipation proclamation had set him free, the first thing he thought of was the subjection of a white woman to a fate worse than death. Thia, of conrse, was followed by lynching, bnt that does not seem to stop this brutal crime. The only penalty that oan stop it ie emascu lation, a law for which should be on the statute books of every southern state, whether the offender be black or white. It is with a view of averting the war of races that this wholesale lynohlng must precipitate, tbat aome good and philanthropic people in ths bleak north bave revived tbe Liberian colonization scheme of forty odd years ago, and are now aeeking to make it popular in the south. It will be easy enough to get tbe negroes there, but a very hard thing to keep them there. The modern American negro, born on a sugar or cotton planta tion, is a widely different being from the African savage who landed on Barataria or Tybee island a hundred years ago. He has become a creature of tbe American climate and soil, and the climate of hia ancestore haa already become a foreign one to bim. The Liberian coloniat* sent ont to that country prior to the civil war got so sick of their liberty tbat they would go down on board the ships that touched at Loando and San Felipe and beg to be taken back to Amsrica, even if they bad to be sold back into slavery. Tbey real ized that "ole masßa" wasn't snob a baa fellow, after all and were glad to get back to "de ole plantation" at any sac rifice.- The truth is that the negro it lacking in self-reliance and decision of ebaraoter. You will find exceptions, of course, bnt tbose exceptions only eerve to prove the role. With the fierce climate of Africa and tbe utterly lonely anrronndinga tbat characterize every new colony, the negro will become impatient in the land of hia fathera and sigh for a return to Amer ica. We admire the forealght that haa led np to tbis sebeme bnt w* have onr ieara »* ** "* - *" SOCIETY.

Cutting Down tha Seaside Train Service •n Two Uoails—Tha Santa, fa's Bervic„ at Chi cago. W. 8. Gedbe of Pioche, who has been in tbe east for two months past on min ing and railroad business, returned to Salt Lake last week, and in an interview with tha Herald of that city, speaks very enconragingly of the outlook for a railroad for Southern Utah at an early day. Mr. Godbe will soon be joined by De Lamar and other capitalists inter ested in the venture, and the success of the enterprise seems now assured. Upon the arrival of tbe party thoy will ex-, amine the districts to be benefited by the new road. It is then that tbe main line route will be decided upon, but that wbich ia now greatest in favor is from Milford sonth across the desert nntil the Santa Clara ia reached, and then down the atraam to Conger'a and ont over the divide to the Virgin river conntrj, tak ing tbe old California trail. Thie would give the shortest ronte to California and develop the southern part of the terri tory. Branch lines would be run from Desert Springs to Cedar coal fields and to Pioohe and Bullionville. It ia anticipated that operations will even be commenced this year, and when once nnder way there will be no stopping nntil the roads are completed. Tbe project contemplates the early con struction of a standard gauge road from Miiford to Bullionville, along the old grade of the Union Pacific, and the im mediate extension of tbe Nevada South ern from Vanderbilt to Goode Springs, a distance of 25 miles. This would leave a gap of in the neignborbood of 200 miles to be crossed by the main line, but with tbe feeders tbe company wonld be able to reap such a harvest that a completion of the system and tbe making of a through line to California wonld be matters of but a ebort time. The old Union Pacific grade between Pioche and Miiford, whioh the new com pany will use, ia in good condition and almost ready for the commencement of steel laying. Tbe money for the roads bas already been practically pledged, and in the opinion of Mr. God be it will not be very long before the actual opera tions are commenced. CHANGE OF SERVICE. Commencing on Monday, Ootober Ist, tbe Southern California railway will pot on a train each way between Santa Ana and Los Angelea, which will leave Santa Ana at 7:45 a. m , arriving at Loa Angelea at 8:48 a, m., and returning leave Lot Angeles at 5:10 p, m., ar riving at Santa Ana at 6:20. On the same date, the following sea side traina will be discontinned: Leav ing Loa Angelea for Redondo and Santa Monica at 9:00 a. m. and 1:35 p.m.; leaving Inglewood at 3:30 n. m. for latter pface'aV 1:26 p. m. and 5:15 p. m.; also leaving Redondo at 3:50 p. m. and 5:15 p. m. Between Orange and Santa Ana traina will leave Orange at 9:15 a. m. and 5:30 p. m., leaving Santa Ana at 9:05 a. m. and 5:10 p. m. Other traini will run aa at present. NORTH AND SOUTH ARIZONA ROAD. The Phoenix Gazette learns tbat trains on the Santa Fe, Prescott and Pbicnix, the north and sonth Arizona road, will be running into Wickenburg November let. There is on hand enough material to lay 20 miles of track; all material for the completion of the road has been con tracted for; 2500 tons of steel rails are now en route from Pittsburg; ties are being sawed at Williams, and Irom 10 to 12 oarloads of them arrive at Ash Fork daily ; four large vessels are on the way from the sound with bridge timbers. Unofficially it is annonnced that work on tbe extension toward Florence of the aame road will be commenoed at onoe. THE SOUTHERN'S EASTERN LINE. Tbe Midland branch in Southwest Louisiana, extending north from a eta tion near Lafayette, called Midland Junction, to the new town of Eunice, ia almost completed. Tbe new line, which is 24 milee long, has about 16 miles oi road completed and surfaoed. Track; has been laid tbe remaining eight miles, and surfacing will be pushed as rapidly as possible. The erection of the station and warehouaeß at Eunice has teen com menced. THEY TAKE OFF" THREE TRAINS. The change in the time card on the Southern Pacific takes off three round trip trains between thia oity and Santa Monica on Sunday. They will include the 9:20 a. m., 1 and 5:45 p.m. going from here, and the trains leaving the coast at 4:20, 5:55 and 6:45 p. m. The last train in the future from Santa Monica on Sunday will be at 6p. m. The laat train on week days will be at 3:30. ANOTHER fast trais. It is unofficially announced by the Santa Fe people that a second train a day will be added to the service to Chi cago about the middle of October. It ia said tbat it is more than likely that the time of three aud a half days, which it now requires to make the journey, will be reduced several hours. In other words, it will be the design to make the time between Southern California and Chicago jußtns short as possible. LOCAL BREVITIES. S. H. Gates hae been made the night operator at Spadra. Thia ie owing to the increase of bueinesa from that point. The fast Sunset special wbich will be started about November Ist ou the Southern Pacific will make but two stops between here and Yuma. The new Bteamer schedule which goes into effect today between here and Cata lina provides two steamers a week. Trains to connect will leave over the Southern Pacific on Wednesday and Saturday at 9:46 a. m., and will arrive from there at 11:54 a. in. on Wednesday and Thursday. A. M.

CONFLICTING EXPLANATIONS Soma Htataments About That Week Ttiat Do Not Davatell. The publication in yesterday's Herald of tbe facts regarding the street work now being done on Temple street occa sioned considerable comment around the city hall. The impression which seemed to prevail to some extent that the Herald's account implicated Council man Innes in any wrong doing is entire ly erronsons. Indeed, it was not in tended to assert tbat there was anything beyond negligence in the matter, but it waa pointed out how the thing might bring a whole lot of trouble and the im pression it was apt to create in the minds of taxpayers. Street Superintendent Watson's ex planations yesterday were that new men had gone to work ont there and had dumped a few loads of dirt on the street where tbey sbould not. The foreman of the Temple-street road stated positively that the city bad not put any gravel on tba street where the company should do the work. The fact still remains, however, that all tbe teams and men Working on the job were working in together, hanlinggravel from the same place and plaoing it wherever Deputy Riggs and the boss of the job ordered it, and it would take a Philadel phia lawyer to figure ont which part of tba work the city was doing and whioh the cable company was doing. .18111 G.

Casey Dlda't Dla Cpon tha Battla riald and tha Starr af Hia Bride Was Nothing but a Fake. A preaa dispatch was printed In many papers over the country a lew days ago regarding a handsome black horse which waa being sent from Fort Keogh, Mon tana, to "Miss Hunt, the daughter of Colonel Hunt" of Los Angeles. Tbsra was • very romantic and pa« thetio tale connected with the horse. It was all abont Captain Casey, Indians, ballets, death on tbe battlefield, rider less olunging charger, lovely yonng lady waiting to marry Captain Casey after the Indians were all killed off, and the like of that. When the horse got as far as Ban Franoisco and tbey took him off the boat to Ist bim get the kinks out of his legs and stretoh himself, the San Francisco papers sprang this romantic tale on tha defenseless pnblio. Next day It was telegraphed broadoaet. The "black charger" arrived at San Pedro yesterday on the Coos Bay and will be brought to this oity today. Those who look for Miss Hunt mounted proud ly on his baok, waltzing down Spring street, the focus of all eyes, will be dis appointed. First, because there is no such young lady as Miss Han t and, sec ondly, because the horse belongs to Col onel Swaine, who bas rscently pur chased a ranch at Los Nietoa and who will take tha horse down there. Colonel Swaine knew Captain Casey and liked bis horse, so after Casey waa shot in the back by a lone Indian on a lonely trail, be bought the horse and Is now having It shipped down here. For this reason the following sample para graph taken from the article published in the Call will have to be diluted a little in order to make it go down smoothly: "Miss Hunt felt deeply the affliction tbat was suddenly foroed npon ber by the murderous Sioux. She waa loyal to ber dead lover, never giving thought to any enitor that pressed her for her heart and hand. Bhe is pretty, accom plished and much admired in both civil anu military social circles, bnt it bas always been eaid tbat ehe never seemed to look favorably npon any partionlar member of the male sex since the run ning fight at Wonnded Knee."

Regarding tbis as a base libel wbon that party has made a specialty of stealing by statute law since its inception, and is too much in love with law and order to steal in any other manner, I feel it your doty to call tbe attention of Colonel Otiß to this undeniable falsehood, tbat the writer may he dealt with in a man' ncr fitting tbe offense.
