THE HUNTINGTON-JONES CINCH. Secret Plane nf the Ootap im to Stab San IVdri, in the Daofet. Uow great the need is that every o.tizen of Southern California should put hi< Bhonlder to the wheel and work with might and ijiin for tbe aucosaa of tbe San Pedro harbor insmorial is scarcely realized by the average man. II tw deep and dark the plot is to rob Southern California of a deep sea har bor has yet to be told, though in the pastthere has been uo mincing of words when discussing the infamy of Octopus Huntington, in these columns, at least. Information comes now to Tv:. HitRAt.D of a most dastardly plot to stab in the back San Pedro and the whole southern oonntry, It comes from a reliable source, and it shows tbat the Huntington-Jones combination has all but succeeded in defeating the will ol tbe people of Loa Angeles, and, in fact, of ninety-nine one-hundredtha of the people of Southern California, to have a deep sea harbor located at San Pedro. In spite of the repeated reports of the government engineers and the resolu tions of tbe California legislature, state i 1 tic.il conventions, transmissiseippi congress, the local chamber of commerce, board of trade and numorous other or ganizations, all in favor of a deep sea harbor at Ban Pedro, the senate com merce committee has tacitly agreed to make an appropriation for Santa Monica. Tbis startling piece of information ie vouchsafed by a gentleman from Phila delphia in close touch with the lobby at Washington, and now sojourning in this city. Tho story is best told in his own words as related to a HsjBALD represent ative, who, learning of hie presenne at a leading hotel here, and tbe nature of his mission, sent up his card aud found the gentleman quite willing to talk, upon condition that his identity be not made public. A CONGItESJIONAL PLOT. "Yes sir," said he, "I do known thing or two about vonr harbor quentiou, which is partly responsible for my boms Oit hero, cud I'll tall yuu, now, if tbe Iriende of Sin P .dro do not bestir ttiem '«»lves vigorously and that without tho iojs «s8 £ lament's lime, IJir.tn Monica will get tbat Appropriation ai cure as fate.

Huntington. "Now, in making theie diiclosures I do not claim to be mived aolely by pa triotism. I may have selfish interests at stako, as I expert to beooma a resident and property owner iv your city, and the motives that prompt ins are, there fore, the samo that would prompt any otter property holder tv do or say that which would be for the welfare of tbe property interests of Ihe city. Furthermore, I am not aesking notoriety, and I therefore request that you do not uao my name in uonnoction with this interview. I am ready to substantiate my atatosmsnts at any time, though, to any one making the request, and you may keep my namo and address for the private inlormation of any one questioning tho authenticity of tbia interview." TO GET ON THK GROUND FLOOR. The preliminaries being thus arranged, the gentleman from the Qoakor City, who by thu way ia a heavy capitalist and a man of high standing, proceeded to divulge his et<tte secret. "I have an intimate friend in Wash ington who ia a professional iobhyiat, and I may say, one of the most success ful at the national capital. This friend of tnioe is from the south ami nn in timato of Senator Rtnaom. chairman of ihe senate committee on commerot. Last fall, hearing that a buO-c muni ttec ol tho senate coir.mnrc.i commit tea wat going to visit Southern California for thu purpose of dec ding upon tho best locu tion for a deop aea harbor for Los An geles, it occurred to me that I might combine bui'inoss with pleasure, by at" oompanyiag that committee on Its junketing trip, or coming on here about the name tim- 1 , observe which port the.- MEUOSIAI TO COXOr.ESS VRQTNQ IMMEDIATE ACTIO}! FOR TUE , COHSTSVCTION OF A HARIiOi: *T SAX PEDRO. LOS AXGELES VOCXTY, CALIFORXIA. To ihe Congress of the United Stales: Tbe undersigned citizens of thu United States, residiag in Southorn California and adjacent territories, would respectfully represent: I. That a deep aoa harbor on ths coast of Los Augslos county is a matter o! urgent necessity, not only for the commercial needs oi this auction, but alio for the n .m of the national government, 11. Thtt three boards of government engineers have examined tbe different harbor Biles suggested, aud have in each case unanimously decided in lavor ol San Pedro aa tho best location, tbeir reasons for selecting it being iv each case act forth at length :n their reports to the war department, which reports have been laid before your honorable body. 111. The only opposition to San Pedro emanates from Coliis P. Huntington, the president ot the Southern Pacific Kailroad company, who for hia own eeltish enda desires the selection ol Santa Monica, where his corporation has a monopoly of tbe water front, and where competition hy other railroada ia an impoasibility, IV. In view of these facte and conditions, we earnestly urge your honorable body to take immediate action and make such appropriation aa will onable work on the proposed deep eea harbor at the present session of congress. In aupport of our petition we would call your attention to the reports of the government experta authorizsd by your honorable body at various periods during tbe past three years to select a location for a deep sea harbor on tbe coast of Loa Angelea county ; to the memorials of the state legislature urging tho con struction of a harbor at San Pedro; to the action of Tranamissisaippi congresa of 181)3-4; to numeroua petiliona of the chamber of commerce of the city of Loa An gelee, resolutions of city councils, boards of supervisors and commercial'organiza tions of Southern California; to petitions of the citizens and commercial bodies of every principal city and town oi Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, all urging ap propriation for the construction of a deep sea harbor at San Pedro; and to the resolutions embodied in the platforms of tha county oonventiona of all political parties ol Los Angeles, favoring the proposed harbor. The undersigned respectfully submit that there can be no valid objection nor feaeible oppoaition to the proposed harbor, and that the urgency of the measure at tbia time is iv tbe nature of an emergency. Signature •. RgsiDiNOßri were going to report in favor of, and using the knowledge thus obtained, get in early and buy some of the water front or land adjoining the proposed harbor site, aud thus lay tbe foundation for a nice real estate speculation. "With this cud in view, I hied me to Washington to consult with my friend Colonel , the lobbyist. It is not necessary to drag his name into this in terview, for reasons that are obvious. Well, the colonel acquiesced in my plans and we both agreed to accompany tho senate aub-comtnittee which was to visit Loa Angoloa immediately alter the eloc tions. THE TRIP POSTPONED. "Tbo elections, as ym krov, had quite a depressing efloct on tne I)_>m ocrata in congreß?, most of thorn losine. interest in the business of the ehort eea' sion, on account of their failure of re election. Senator Random, himself, as you are aware, will lose his ee»t on ac count of tho political landslide in North OsroltSS, Ws.l. the result of the whole bnaineiß wss, that tho sonato eab-coir commiltoe decided to postpone ita trip to California. "1, however, had male up my mind to apend tho winter in Los Angoles, in stead of going to Florida, as has boon my custom. My friend, the lobbyist, urged me to go and attend to tbe real estate business and ho would remain in Washington and loam ths intont of the donate commerce committee on the barbor proposition and furnish me with tho tips where to buy. His intimate relations with Senator Htiaom and other members of the committee soon enabled him to learn that it had been tacitly agreed upon to make the appro priation for Santa Monica, but iv view of the engineers' report and the press ure brought to bear in favor of San Pedro from other sources, this could not be done without making aome ahowof an examination on tho part of the com mittoo. It waa, therefore, resolved to come out hero after tho 4th ol March, ostensibly to look into tiie matter, but iv reality eimply as a matter of form, then go back, and at the next aession o! congrGßß report io favor of Santa Moni ca, when it ia thought enthciont support can bo ralliod in both bouees to pass the measure. "It may be tbat it will bo attempted at this session, as tbo Sou them Pacific suck is being and with good effect, and it would not surprise me to ace a major ity mustered in favor of an appropria tion for a deep eea harbor at Santr. Monica. If thero is the slightost ohance to do it, you may rest assured that it will he done, for the Southorn f'Ecilic will go to any extreme to accomplish its end. It ha'j millions at etaae and ia using money lavishly." A SECRIJT BT.UI AT SAN I'EDRO. "My friend, Who ia in a position to know, aaya it practically owna every congressman from the Pacific coast. 1 hero may be an occasional exception, but it is hard to tell these dava who can not ho influenced by money at Wash- iogton. Many who are apparently working openly for a certain proposition because their constituents demand it, are opposing it secretly, and when the time comas to rote, if necessary to de feat tho measure, they will dodge the issue or deliver their votes to their hired masters. They always reaorve the right to vote in accordance with the wisbos of their constituents, if they can do so without defeating tho ends of thoir em ployara. "It is ao with this harbor question. | Some ol thoso who are profosaodlv |" working (or San Pedro will hoar watc!« ing, if my information is reliable, and I think it If. I am not impugning tho honor of any indivdual member, but it does eeotn strango that a majority of tbo nenato commerce committee could b'j won over to thetride of Santa Monica in the face of nl! the ovidence, if money haa not something to do with it." Tha reporter hero interrupted: "If you have euch confidence in your lufor TWELVE PAGES. mation, you havo then, no doubt, already proStod by the tip and accom plished the purpose for which you came here, that ie, aecured a slice of the Santa Monica water front or some good prop erty adjacent. But if that is the caae why are you now giving the Bcoop away, as wa reportora Bay?" "Ab, my boy, that ia the point I am coming to. There's tbe rub, aa Shakea peare aaya. I have been to Santa Monica and seen the proposed barbor. Don't tell me that a harbor can be oon atructed there, that is at reasonable coBt; a harbor that will be a haven ol refuge in time of otorm instead ol an open roadstead. It seoms absurd to ad vocate the proposition when nature haa ao close by furnished a harbor that only needs comparatively slight improve ment in order to make it one of the best and safest on the coaat; a harbor large enough to accommodate tho fleets of the world in all kinds of weather. "I noted, too, while at Santa Monica the cinch, ao you westerners term it, Mr. Huntington's company has on tbe wat?r front. Why, it would be impos sible for any other railroad to get to tbat haihor if ono wero conetruoted. And bb for any outsidor to gobbla up any desir able real estate, I found that Senator Jones end bio conirerea hold every foot that would afford a chanco for specula tion. Ido not aay that there is no good property at Santa Monica that is not owned by the Huntington-Joaea combi nation, but I came to the conoluiion that in view of the monopoly of the Southern PaoiEcof the harbor facilities, tho town would not grow as it wonld if other railroads could obtain terminal facilities thßre. That li why I did not invest at Santa Monica," • I came here primarily fir my heath and mc identally to make aome money. I have already been benefited in health, and as I iin tired ol running awßy from the coid wintera of the east, I have re polved to make thia my permanent home and do my visiting in the east, ioatoid of vice veraa. "I see a great future ahead for your city if it is not retarded by vicious legis lation in tbe way oi a harbor appropria tion for Santa Monica instead of San Pedro. As a prospective owner of city property, I want to ace the harbor go whero it will do the moit good tor the greatest number. At San I'edro all the railroads will have an opportu nity to oecure wharfage privileges on a c una hi basis, and there ia where tbe government should lend ita aid. "It is plain that a large majority of the peoplo of this section favor Sin Pedro ns against Santa Momoa, for the best of reason \ nnd it wiil bshoove them to keep thcfr weather eye on the statesmen at Washington, or they will waks up someday and find that they bave been badly betrayed.

All of the old time lobbyiats are now on the ground and wire palling is going on everywhere. W. B.

In an interview with Th:: Herald representative tonight he said th at he wonld do nothing farther in tbe fight before Wednesday, when the final organization of the senate and assembly will enable him to give a dear field to work in.
