The battle for emancipa tion tias now fairly begun. Let every honest advocate of the people's rights rallr to the atandard wbich Senator MarAeWa hae unfurled. Ths legislature should submit an amendment to the constitution abolish ing tha mortgage tax. Instead of bene fiting tba .borrower, as was intended, it does bim injury. Parties may agree tv pay any rata of interest not inequitable, and tha courts have held tbat very high rates are not inequitable. The lender, therefore, adds what will cover the mortgage tax above tbe rate he wishes for tha use of his money, and generally anare. It moreover causes a great deal of trouble and no little expense in of property and collection of taxes. .California is quite alone in not having Ihe conventional rate of interest limited by lavr. No one who Is not an idiot would attempt to pull either of the pedal extremities of the present day "lagoo," whatever that may be or mean, a*erm which to us is much more mys terious thitn "leg pulling."—[Express. It wae not expected that the Singing An Of Mono, who lies nneasy on tbe tripod of thn atarveiing Express, noto rious (or the misinformation it conveys to iti limited constituency, would com prehend the "myeterious term" "la goo." Evidently the Monrning Dove of Bodie, wbo boasts tbat be arrived in Los Angeles wben the Band "came up" to Hill street, imagines that "Iagoo" is an error of ths Exprsae variety for "lago." Bnt it Isn't. The crass igno rance of the Pea Green Exhalation of Esmeralda is thus flaunted in the view of an intelligent community, competent to understand an allusion from Long fellow and not apt to confound it with a character of Shakespeare, like a pen nant on the poop of a Japanese junk.

"Are you there, Jim?" Is no longer a proper qnestion. Evidently bs is. He has proven his presence most emphatic ally and moat pleasingly to tho better elements of society. Almost his first official act haa been to revsrss ths last act of an ex-governor who will be chiefly reinembsrsd for having had the audaoity to affront a sovereign peopla by the appointment of a professional sport and gambler to a high end moat responsible offioe. Ex- Govsrnor Markham will go down in history ai the man wbo made Mo-ie Gunst polios commissioner of San Frau eicco. And whatever else Governor Budd may or may not do dnring his torrn of office, San Francisco, at leant, owes him an undying debt of gratitude for lifting from ita shonldrrrj ths unwel come though justly deservad bttrd.-'i of a Moses Gunst. "Mose Gunst has went" shij tints sure enough. And his going proves one thing—the power of publio sentiment when thoroughly aroused to united and emphatic action. Who slull now say that public opinion, rightly expressed, is a doad Isttsr even in this corporation* ridden commonwealth? It tiaeds only the samo exhibition of rnnnly decision and i ldignation, expressed in the same determined ana united manner to rid tbo state of California of a burden the weight and sins of which is as a m-ma lam to a molehill wben spoken of in tho same breath with Moies Quoit. Even tho publio spirit" i oitizana who de nounced Mosos Gunst loudest, declared him an honest man in his call ing. Not even the most prejudiced partisans and witrniei. admirers of Collis P. Huntington would have the tomeritv to spoak of him as au bonost man, or deny thn be has and does bribo legislatures, congress and tha court to do his selfish bidding. But Collis P. Huntington can hit back, whereas to attack a man of Moses GuustV calibor mesnt merely to trounce a potty offen der against the social code. It remains to be oeeu whether theso same hold citizen* of Ban Franoiseo who demanded, in thunder tonsv, the re moval of a social pariah from tho head of tbeir police department shall havo enough of their boldness left to domand the dethronement of a social leopard wbo has never changed his spots; of n political and financial tyrant who has tbe power and the venom to strike bauk when whipped. But whether San Francisco shall be bold again or not, the power of her voice baa been proven. The ehiof magistrate of tbe etate has heard it, and heeded it, though until the Los Angeles Herald pointed out the fact that the governor could undo such an appointment, not even tbe bold ones of San Francisco looked for assistance in the welcome manner in which it hns come. BOODLEISM. The people generally may not be aware how extensively b.iodle'.-ru prevails. It includoß more than the payment of cash down fur official favors. Boodleism is tbe life and soul of bossism aud maobine politics, for it inoludes parceling out nominations and appointments in com pensation for political work. The boas Bays to Tom: You do this And you shall liave auch an office, or ba nominated for it; to Diok, if you will bring up a dolsgation that wili support Tom, you shall be his ohisf deputy ; and to Harry, if yon will give na the delegates from your ward and Tom is nominated and elected, we will get enough money outo him to pay you for your work, or you shall be employed in such a position, or have a fat contract. Machine politic? is for no purpose but to bave in office men wbo cao be used to advantage in places where there is patronage or money to be expended for tbe benefit ol those who are cogs in the machine. It is all for the purpose of controlling natty nominations and plun dering the people. Boodleism goes farther. Tho machine men aro suppoaod to have influence with thoßO whom they have caused to be nominated, and the unwary people hare olected, aud can dictate the dispensation of patronage. Thoae who are not sup* potiod to have earned places by work for the machine are expected to pat up caAh for appointments, and the ward bosses demand it an coolly as if it were the pr.ct on a horse or cow, and the seekers for places to an extent tbat would be aatouiahing to tha unsophisti cated, do from time to timo pay a per centage from thoir salaries. No wonder there ie not more economy and rigid honesty in tbo discharge of public duties. The boas could not run his machine without patronage boodleor cash boodle, Dan Burns wanted to have Moao Gunst appointed police commissioner that his police force could b& relied on to help his machine. The inacbino makes nominationa for office and diotatea bow official duties shall be performed aud what policie shah be pnraned, and not tbe people, wbo have to foot the bill). And this Bystem will prevail just as long aa tho people wiil not interfere. Wben the people shall cast about for oandidataa of their choioe and take care that they are nominated, machine politics, bossism and boodleism will disappear. Then tbe people will have soma voioe in the ap pointment of deputies and aaaistants, and doing dirty work or putting up cash for inflaenoe will disappear. Then aspirants for popular favor will not first seek the bass and his strikers for sup port. It is for those who hold good gov ernment in highest consideration to say whether boodleism eball pass into ignominons oblivion. !

These people are making an honsst en deavor to help themselves. They have adopted the co-operativo plan, and they ask tbe people to give them aa oppor tunity to better their condition, offering to perform any duty of wbich thoy are capable for a reasonable compensa tion. The members of tbe association bave, in a measure, been oompelled to organize on thia basis, aud it is unkind to acouse them of interfering with the opportunities of others equally deserv ing. These people are trying to accom plish in nnison something which tbey found virtually impossible severally, and they era willing to welcome to their ranks as co-workers all who are equally willing to perform an honest day's work. It ia this effort on the part of the laboring masses that distinguishes tho honest workingmau from the lazy, dissolute nnd criminal tramp. If the workingman of this city will all stand for thn principles practiced by the New Era organization the tramp probluta can bs easily settled, for thero will no longer be difficulty in dis criminating between the deserving and tho vicious. Tbe former will find encouragement forhensßt labor and tbe latter can be mado to serve tbe com munity invoiuntarily in the chain gang. The tramp wbo will not work when it is offered ii undeserving of sympathy or assistance, but ou tbs othsr hand, the man who tries to perform bis duty to himself and his fellow man is worthy of the moßt cordial encouragement. Mr. Osborne is evidently nnder or ders to divert publio attontion from the main question ir. tbia ißsue by provoking a personal quarrel between Tub Herald and the Express. It ia au old trick of the enemy. But Mr. Huntington, wily fox that be ie, will ti ml thai, he has to deal with men as adept in this fort of warfare as he. Osborne of the Express is but small game. Ho ia tbo dog in leash. An occasional cut ol the whip or c hick at intervals will send him yolpitig to his kenuwl. It is not tbe creature that Tub Hibald ie now con~ corned with, but the master. It is Huntington and not Osborne that is vow in evidence. Those who hunt liona do not ntop to knock over jsckalß.

Washington, Jan. 14.—Franklin W. Joplin was Appointed postmaster today at Elisabeth* town, Ky., vice Mrs. llenjamin Helm. The circumstances surrounding the case make i( one of unusual interest. General Hen Hardin Helm, the husband of Mrs. Helm, was one of tbe most gallant soldiers in the confed erate army. He WSJ the commander of the famous Orphans' brigade and was killed at the battle of Chickamauga. Mrs. Helm, the post in ist ress who wai re moved today, was a younger sister of Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, who was a Todd. Colonel Robert Lincoln was her nephew, and when lie was appointed secretary of war by President Garfield lie secured bis aunt's appointment as postmistress of Bllxabethtown. that position She bas beld through three administrations— Arthur's, Cleveland's ami Harrison's. Although an effort was made to bave Mrs. Helm removed during Mr. Cleveland's first term, it tvui not urgently pressed and was un successful. The appointment of Franklin w. Joplin today was made on tbe recommendation of Representative Montgomery. MUSKY FOB NINKir.SIX, How Unci* Sam Will Bp.tid a Few atlllloaa.

M. COLD PROPOSITION. Rerrla-trator Carl ta Be Built at Kanaka Oity. Kansas City, Jan. 15. —A local paper says: A gigantic corporation is being formed for the purpose of manufacturing refrigerator cars iv Kansas City. The company will have a capital of $11,500,000, and It is being backed by the Adams of Boston and other eastern capitalists The company will build an immense plant at Ariuourdale. a Lap-Bared Journalist. Pomona Beacon. The Express did not support Mr. Budd for governor, but as a newspaper devoted to the interests of California first, desiring the wel fare of the state above everything, it trusts he will make a good chief executive and discharge the duties of the ollice with credit to himself and the state. From our esteemed Angelefio contemporary come the foregoing conciliatory words, and it is indeed refreshing to know that; the dear public will have a rest from tho onslaught which that erratic journal has been making on Mr. Itudd because some lop-eared ward politician of San Francisco said he was not honestly elected. If the Express will go on "simply trustiog every day," it will probably learn that James H. Budd will make a good chief executive if he has a chance. He Hm Aotitrt. Fresno Expositor. The Los Angeles Herald publishes an ex position of the law relating to Han Francisco's eternal police commissioner to prove that Gov ernor Budd has the power to remove Mose (iunst from office and appoint a man in his place who is "in touch" with the law-abiding, order-loving and decent people of that city, in place of the leader of the sporting element, the gamblers, the keepers of houses and re sorts ior the demi-monde and the "chippies." It is hoped that Thb Herald's exposition is a true one. If it is, Governor Budd will no doubt act accordingly. •'A «r«at Pepur.'* Yreka Union.

What it has are charges. And these charges are gov erned—by what? By whit can be obtained, by all the traffic will bear. And sometimes they overestimate—they hare never yet made the mis'akc of underestimating—the amount that the traffic will bear and survive. Of course, it isn't the intention of this philanthropic cor poration to entirely crush out the fruit grow er's business. That would be cruel and, inci dentally, not good policy on the part of tho octopus. Of course, fruit must be raised, else there would bo nothing for thu southern Pa cific to carry. But it need not be raised by free men. Slaves can raise fruit. How to properly subjugate the fruit growers and keep them in a state of pervi'.uds has been the prob lem. It wasn't very difficult to enslave the San F: ancisco shippers. That did not even tax the Ingenuity of the ptoua Mr. Huntington. To bring the valley growers to a proper sense of gratefulness for the privilege of Jiving and growing fruit ou Mr. Huntington's plantation has been a task that even the giant brain of tho pious old man lias not been entirely equal to up to the present writing. True, the Southern Paeif'r; has succeeded in many instances in reducing the valley grow ers to the material condition of slaves. It has impoverished them, but the deuce take their stubborn spirit, tbey have declined to kiss the hand that smiths them and steals the fruit of their labor. Here they are today in Los An geles streets walking upright liko free men and—mark well their audacity- actually plot ting to throw off the financial yoke that Oc topus Huntington has iried all these years to fasten upon them forever. Vassals plotting against their lord I What stuff these valley men must bo made of! Why are they not at home working on the old man's plantation? "During the A. R. U. strike in this state there WM an endeavor to create public sentiment against the strikers by stating that the fruit growers near the line of road would be ruined hy inability to get their products to market," says Barry's Star. "Meeting with an old ac quaintance, who for several years had been en gaged in the business near Colfax, we referred to that view, lie said it was nousanse, for tiie simple reason that thu fre ght rates charged by the monopoly were so high that, in connec tion with tbe speculations to which growers are exposed from commission merchants, fruit growing had become unprofitable, and but lit tle would have been Shipped last summer had there been no strike. And here are the figures as to thu charge! from Colfax as he gavethem; To Denver and Halt Lake, #250 per carload of 12 to 14 tons; to Chicago, l l i cents a pound, or $300 to $3,50 a carload. To Buffalo, $396.47, and to New York, #414.0<>. "These rates are without refrigerators, for which tho extra charge is $164.78 to Buf falo, and .f 175 to New York. "But there i s competition, as from Los An geles to Chicago the charge is only L}2so< re frigerators included. That is about what the charges would be from Colfax, while theactual charge is $300 t09350. without refrigerators, Which would probably be $150 more—a differ ence, of nearly two to one. "But the comparison does not do the subject full justice, as competition reslly increases the expense of the name to the companies, wheieas that expense would be very much decreased under complete government ownership. •'The testimony ot Mr. Stubbs before the in terstate commerce commission some years ago and thu concurrent estimates of expertß, as embodied in professional journals, are to the effect thai tbe actual cost of moving freight on roads varies but little from three mills per ton per mile. Tbis, we presume, do.*s not in clude the expenses of station and depot serv ice. For these, however, a fixed allowance of, say, $3.00 per carload, irrespective of diF tance, would appear to be ample; but much more might be allowed, and still the sum would much less thou the rates now charged ' Take, for instance, the following compari son between the Btubbl figures of cost and the tictunl charges: Colfax to Salt Lake, 72i miles, $2.17 per ton, $i 0.78 per carload of 14 tons (they are likely to be 12 to 13 tons ; add $3, fixed charges; total, $33.78. The railroad now charges sjt!lstf. *■ We have no table of distances beyond Salt Lake on that line, but Denver is about 300 miles father, and the actual cost of service to that place would be, on the same basis of cal culation, 00 cents per ton more. "From Colfux to Chicago is very close to 222G miles, which, according to the estimate again, would make the cost $6.68 per ton, or $93.52 por carload of 14 tons, or, with fixed charges added, $96.52. The actual present charge is from $300 to $350. "Buffalo is about 800 miles from Chicago by the route south of Lake Brie, or about 250 by the Canadian route. The movement cost would therefore be about $7.tU per ton, or $106.54 for a 14-tou car; add the $3 for fixed expenses, and we have & cost of $109.54 per car, for which the railroad charge*: 9895.47, the differ ence representing what the people have to pay for the luxury of having roads run by private corporations with $50,000 salaries for the managers, whole rafts ot lawyers, spies, de tectives, lobbyists, politicians, etc.. as against the rates that would be charged were the roads owned and run by the government. ' New York is about 3.151 miles from Colfax which on the same basis of calculation ns above, would give a rate of $9.40 per ton, or 9183.80 per carload ; $185.80 including station expenses, charges ou the plan of more than 'all the traffic will bear' now are $Ll4.o<i. The cost to tho public for millionaire di rectors, officials, and other business is $276.72, or more than doublo the necessary total charge under government ownership. "These arc the kind of facts that the press keep from the people. Yet fruit ra sing ii one of the most important Industries of the state. If fruit raisers had taken The Star for the last ten years, they would not have to threaten the railroad (as they didj that they would ship no fruit next season unless the rates were lowered, as they will be. As ii is, for the trifling de ductions from the enormous overcharges ex acted this season, the fruit growers will still permit tho monopoly to charge them more than double what tha service is worth." coming still nearer home, there is the case of Editor W. W. Karnes oi the Hanford Demo crat who has had personal experience with the octopus. He tella about It in the following paragraph: "The aouthern Pacific Railroad company have numerous ways ot filching from the pub lic. Not satisfied with 'all the Iraflic will bear,' they overcharge. A short time since the Democrat received a package of freight weighing sixty-five pounds, but the octopus collected for 110 pounds. On two other bills of freight the overcharge exceeded 100 pounds. If it treats all of its customers alike, it is no wonder there is a general howl for a compet ing railroad." VUI RAILS B PRE AD. A Bud Railroad Einiih-Dp Near Stock.
