It is Salt Lake or bust.
Ransom goes to Mexico.
We lead— the others follow.
Have you signed the petition?
The days of Congress are numbered.
The people are signing the petition,
How do you like the Sunday Herald?
Don't the Easterners look surprised':
Don't forget that Los Angeles needs a
big hotel.
What a glorious country Southern Cali
fornia is.
Gee whiz! how the railroad lobby is
Now only Senator Frye of Maine stands
in the way.
Now is the opportunity—get in and con
tribute to the Fiesta.
Good news for Southern California!
Dolph is turned down!
Mcßride may be an unknown quantity,
but Dolph was against us.
This Legislature seems to be doing
nothing uncommonly well.
Of course the administration would
overlook Southern California.
These are anxious days for men holding
subordinate county positions.
Will the Sacramento Bee thank God
when this Legislature adjourns?
England will not let the Provisional
Government at Hawaii execute Rickards.
There is an end to all things —the
Legislature is in the sere and yellow leaf.
See to it that New Orleans is eclipsed
by Los Angeles' festival. Money will
do it.
And poor old Queen Lil is to be
sentenced to rive years' imprisonment.
Every dollar expended in making the
Fiesta out rank Mardi Gras, will return
It is not necessary to tell your acquaint
ance it is a line day in Los Angeles—all
days are fine.
It will he a frosty day when that Reilly
measure goes through. The harbor will
be built at San Pedro.
"Senatorial courtesy" counts for some
thing sometimes. It made Senator Kan
eom Minister to Mexico.
Wonder what Hawaii will do with the
rebels? Those ordered deported the ships
wiil not receive on board.
Coals to Newcastle with a vengeance!
A carload of oranges was shipped from
Los Angeles to St. Augustine.
f It is possible that the railroad from Los
Angeles to Salt Lake will be built before
the first spike is driven on the Valley
In the present state of feeling at Hawaii
it will not be policy for the ins to be too
severe. The outs should not be lost
sight of.
If those Indians down on the desert
would only inagurate a war of extermina
tion, it would pay Uncle Sam to keep his
hands off.
If these plans do not fail, San Francisco
can build her Valley road without excit
ing the least discomfort on the part of
Los Angeles.
Washburn, Ransom, Coke, Dolph—a
Huntington quartette in opposition to
San Pc lro—dangerous no longer. There's
a God in Israel!
The locomotive engineers have won
their fight with the Southern Pacific.
Huntington expects to get even through
Mr. Reilly's bill.
Another opponent of the San Pedro
harbor has been defeated—Dolph of Ore
gon will never again do Huntington's
bidding at Washington.
San Pedro is assured. Agitation has
hastened the consummation of that en
terprise. The Salt Lake railroad is more
than a possibility. Agitation will accom
plish that purpose also.
If that San Francisco Grand Jury in
dicts 0. P. Huntington for violating the
interstate law, what a luxurious trip the
United States marshal will enjoy bring
ing the magnate across the continent.
There will be a special car and "hxins."
The Reilly refunding bill was downed
by a petition; the San Pedro Harbor
proposition was assisted by a petition;
the Salt Lake railroad will be forwarded by
a petition. Who will now have the hardi
hood to class a petition with "waste
basket literature?''
Some timid souls are constantly fearing
the disaster of the future—observing
ghosts, as it were, in the shallows of com
ing events. Just now these rabbit-hearted
prophets of impending evil are predicting
that tiie proposition to bond Los Angeles
county to build a railroad to Salt Lake is
"unconstitutional." It may be that these
expressions are, after all, but covert op
position to any effort on behalf of com
peting railroads, but in any event they
are discouragements and consequently
detrimental to the interests of public en
Southern California has not benefited
largely by this session of the Legislature.
Only a few days of the session are now
available. These may be advantageously
occupied in the passage of a law that will
enable the counties of this section of the
state to accomplish something for the en
hancement of our future prosperity. A
committee of leading citizens will leave
tomorrow for Sacramenuj to present our
claims to a solid recognition. This com
mittee will he backed by the unanimous
sentiment of Los Angeles and presumably
of Southern California. 'They will lay
their proposition before the representa
tiTes of tbe people. They will ask the
Southern*Californian delegation to make
common cause on behalf of their constit
uency. And they will insist that this
effort shall not be half-hearted. There
must be no shirking or excuse when it
shall be decided what course shall be pur
If the representatives of Southern Cali
fornia undertake to force a measure of
the'characler required through the Legis
lature, success will crown their efforts. A
solid phalanx is irresistible.
This is an urgency measure. The com
mittee who will visit Sacramento next
week know what they want and are pre
pared to face all odds in the presentation
of their claims. The committee is itself
representative and will carry weight with
the representatives of the citizens ot
Southern California.
This is an opportunity that may not
occur again under circumstances as fortui
tous or as critical. It is apparent that
San Francisco will look closely after her
own interests and no other. Just now
Loa Angeles does not enter into Iter calcu
lations at all. Her effort is to secure all
the trade north of Tehachepi. Los An
geles must took alter Iter own interests.
This site will do; and Salt Lake is iter
objective point —Salt Lake and San Pedro.
Had the worthy and philanthropic Mr.
Huntington consulted some of the older
members of his lobby at Washington he
would not have stated that the idea of
constructing a deep water harbor at San
Pedro originated in the ambition of the
people of Wilmington ami San Pedro, two
towns which he says grew up by reason of
"unnatural gravitation." The lobby
would have reminded him that under his
direction they had year by year, while
the present breakwater at San Pedro was
being constructed, worked hard for ap
propriations for that purpose; and had
Mr. Huntington, whose memory is get
ting very bad, only paused to think, he
might hare recollected that he only be
came aware of the unavailability of San
Pedro, when a rival railroad corporation
purchased Rattlesnake Islahd and secured
terminal facilities better than those cf
Mr. Huntington's road.
It was then that Mr. Huntington de
termined to leave San Pedro and locate
in "the really right place tor a harbor,
Santa Monica."
Of course Mr. Huntington's idea of
"the really right place for a good harbor"
is one entirely controlled by his corpora
tion anil where no "small interests' can
interfere witli his monopoly.
His generous declaration that his cor
poration will allow other roads to use his
approaches to the proposed Santa Monica
harbor is as candid an admission of the
monopoly he enjoys at that place as une
could desire.
Mr. Huntington is ingenious, plausible
and original, and his originality lias
mainly been developed in the line of
filching; he has probably invented as
many ways of legally stealing as any man
who ever lived, excepting, perhaps, the
late Jay Gould.
Take, fur instance, Mr. Huntington's
plausible anil surely original solution of
the irrigation bum! question.
I nave thought that if some scheme could be
gotten up by which one general bond could be
issued and the amounts subdivided for the
different districts, all to be handled by some
one banking house, so that on any sales there
would be a distribution pro rata among the
different districts each, of course, receiving
consideration according to its importance,
that would be the bestsolutlonof the question,
as the Eastern and European public have to
be firsteducated concerning the value of the
securities they think of investing in.
In other words, Mr. Huntington being
the proprietor of several million acres of
very bad desert land, having sold off most
of the good land presented to him by bis
generous and too confiding country,
Would now organize desert land districts
in It is bad lands,and as these bonds would
of course be practically worthless lie pro
poses to form a pool of all the irrigation
districts in the state —issue one set of
bonds and divide the proceeds pro rata
among the districts. And yet some peo
ple doubt the purity of motive and single
ness of purpose of Mr. Huntington, a
man who, according to his own state
ment, spent twenty years of his life and
over twenty millions of dollars at Wash
ington explaining to obtuse Congressmen
the necessity for just such legislation as
he now desires for the purpose of locating
the deep-water harbor at Santa Monica or
a bill to pool irrigation bonds.
Whereas, Governor L. C. Hughes has
been charged with betraying his party in
the last campaign by conspiring to secure
the defeat of the Hon. John C. Herndon,
our nominee for delegate to CongrdSS, and
the election of Hon. N. Oakes Murphy,
the Republican nominee, as well as to se
cure tbe election of Republican members
to tbe Tentorial Legisatore; and
Whereas, After a full and careful In
vestigation we are thoroughly convinced
of the truth of said charge; now, there
Resolved, That we. the executive com
mittee of the Democratic Central Com
mittee of Arizona, earnestly appeal to the
President of the United States to remove
said L. C. Hughes from the office ot Gov
ernor of Arizona at the earliest practicable
Resolved, That the chairman of this
committee, Hon. B. A. Fickas, be and
he is hereby Instructs 1 to mail a copy of
this resolution to the President and all"
other to the Secretary of the Interior, to
gether with letters ol explanation setting
forth more in detail the facts upon which
it is based.
The above resolutions were adopted by
the executive committee of the Democratic
Territorial Committee of Arizona at a re
cent meeting. It is understood that in
addition to adopting resolutions the com
mittee bus forwarded to Washington a
stroll.' presentment of the case agai: st the
It is rarely the governing power of a
political party makes such a radical de
parture from party usage as to formally
denounce an official of its own political
faith, and when it is done it is usually for
one of two causes, either because of party
treachery, as when an official betrays the
political body which placed him in power
by allying himself with the opposition,
or when the acts of an official are so no
toriously unpopular with all parties, that
his own party desires to disavow respon
sibility for iiis acts.
The first cause seems to have actuated
the Commission in the present instance;
Whether any other reason exists we are
not at present inVniied.but in any event,
it probably makes but little difference
to the Governor; lie lias been practically
read out of his party by a body which is
ordinarily supposed to be competent to
act in such cases and lie will now have to
justify his acts in the eyes of his fellow
partisans before lie can assume to repre
sent the party which placed him in pow
er. Indeed, at. the present juncture, it
would not be a bad idea for Governor
Hughes to sue Francis J. Heney, ex-At
torney General of the territory, for libel,
for if Heney is not trinity of libel Hughes
should resign or the authorities in Wash
ington should remove him.
The Herald today publishes an interest
ing symposium. One of the participants
sC. P. Huntington and the others are
engineers— government and civil. The
discussion concerns the respective merits
of San I'edro and Santa Monica as proper
sites for a deep-sea harbor. The "testi
mony seems to be overwhelmingly in favor
of San Pedro and it is unimpeachable.
Even Mr. Huntington, who presents the
minority report, must admit that the en
gineers are competent to pass on the
question, and he will not assert that their
judgment is warped by personal motives
or that their decision is based on illogical
premises or interested considerations.
It may lie deemed somewhat unfair to
compel Mr. Huntington to discuss this
mat er in a convention so decidedly op
posed to his view of the question, but Mr.
Huntington is used to this sort of opposi
tion—the majority is always against him.
Like Ishmael, his hand is against all men
as the hands of all men are against him.
Besides, hitherto Mr. Huntington's ulti
mate arguments have always proved more
effectual than verbal logic or the stern
presence of irrefutable fact.
It may surprise the thoughtless that
The Herald has permitted Mr. Hunting
ton to utter himself in columns that have
teemed with unfriendly comment upon
his policy. It is only necessary to reiter
ate, however, that The Herald is a news
paper and that its columns are open to
receive the news from any source. Mr.
Huntington is as welcome as any of his
critics, and even Mr. Reilly may defend his
refunding bill to his heart's content. The
Herald, nevertheless, reserves the right to
enter the arena armed with its own
f"/ -Senator Ransom Appointed Minister to
the City of Mexico
Washington, Feb, 28.—- The President
today nominated Hon. Matt W, Ransom,
Senator from North Carolina, for Minister
to Mexico, to succeed the late Hon. Isaac
P. Gray. The nomination was received
by the Senate at 10:2f> o'clock. Few nom
inations have been sent to the Senate
which have received greater favor. The
entire Senate, with two or three excep
tions, and those exceptions because of
relations with the executive, had joined
in the recommendation of the appoint
Mr. Hansom has been a member of the
Senate continuously for the past twenty
three years, being" first chosen in IHT'J.
During the war he filled in succession the
grades of Lieutenant-Colonel, Brigadier-
General and Major-General. Senator Ran
som is (JO years of age, but is well pre- 1
served and does not show his age. He is (
a man of polished manners and of much j
tact, and his colleagues unite in the opin- I
ion that he will make an ideal diplomat. [
The Senate went into executive session
immediately after receiving the nomina- |
tion and confirmed it by unanimous vote.
The confirmation was moved by Senator
Sherman, who in making the motion,
addressed the Senate briefly as to the fit
ness of the nomination of which he spoke
as in every way deserving and appro- i
priate. When the vote was taken there I
was a general response in the affirmative.
The executive session lasted only five
minutes. Senator Hansom made his
escape to his committee room when the
executive session was moved, and was
not present during the executive proceed
Senator Ransom said after his confirma
tion that he would not qualify until after
the fourth of March. After that time he
would be prepared to proceed to Mexico
as soon as the Secretary of State desired
him to go.
A Mardl Qras Train Ditched and the
Cars Burned
Montgomery, Ala., Feb. 23, — A terrible
wreck occurred on the Louisville ami
Nashville Railroad about forty miles
south of Montgomery. It was a Mardi
(iras train and many persons are reported
injured. A special train left here at once I
for the scene with all available physicians 1
in the city.
The wreck occurred on the Mobile and |
Montgomery division of the Louisville and \
Nashville at Greenville. Although it is
reported that seven passengers were killed,
there is no telegraph station at the scene
and it is difficult to obtain accurate in
Eight coaches were overturned, all filled
with passengers bound for Mardi-Gras at j
New Orleans. The coaches at once caught j
fire and are now burning.
Wanted In San Francisco
Salt Lake, Feb. 23.—-A telegram has been
sent to San Francisco by the United States
Marshal here to intercept Alexander Wil
kinson, of Ogden, who. with two other
citizens of that place, has Keen Indicted for
conspiracy in altering ballots in the last
election. The trio are accused of having
doctored the vote in the Weber county
ballot boxes after they were deposited
with the Utah Commission in this city.
Wilkinson left Ogden last Monday for San
Francisco with the intention, it is said, of
taking a steamer for Alaska or Australia.
Gilbert, the Democratic candidate in
wliose interest the fraud is alleged to have
been committed, is said to have gone to
South America, presumably Via San Fran
"These monster petitions that are ex
pected to accomplish so much, have no
effect whatever, said Congressman Geary
in speaking of the funding hill. So it was
in the days of the anti-slavery movement.
Petitions* were spurned, scorned and
thrown under the tables. But the people
wil' be heard.
Now is the time to revive John Pier
pout's poem, published as early as L*.'i7.
What! our petitions spumed I The prayer
Ot thousands—tens of thousands—east,
Unheard, beneath your Speaker's chair!
Hut ye will hear us, first or lust,
The thousands that last real ye loomed
Are millions now. Be warned! Be warned!
There's a cloud blackening up tho sky !
Eut, West and North its curtain spreads;
Lift to its muttering folds your eye!
Beware, foV, bursting on your heads,
Jt hath a force to hen r you down;
'Tis au insulted people's frown.
Ntf, start not from your chairs, in dread
Of cannon shot or burst! ng shell!
These shall not fall upon your head,
As once upon your home they fell.
We have a weapon firmer set
And better than the bayonet.
A weapon that comes down as still
As snow-flakes fall upon the sod,
But executes a freeman's wi 1
As lightning does fte will of God;
And from its force nor doors irr locks
Can shitdd you—'tis the ballot-box!
Black as your deed shall be the balls
That from the box shall pour like hail!
And when the storm upon you falls,
How will your craven cheeks tim pale I
For at its coining though ye laugh,
'Twill sweep you from your hall like chaff.
Not women now—the people pray,
Hear us—or from us ye shall hear.
Beware! a desperate game ye play!
The men that thicken in your rear,
Kings though ye be. may not be scorned.
Look to your move your stake!

New Jersey
Trenton, N. J. Feb. 23.—At the annual
banquet of the Trenton Board of Trade
last night the Hon. Lorin A. Thurston,
Hawaiian Minister to the United States,
responded to the toast The Commercial
Control of the Pacific. After expressing
his pride in representing the youngest re
public in the world, Mr. Thurston quoted
figures showing the magnitude and the
growth of commerce in the Pacific ocean.
Not a vessel, he said, could go across the
Pacific ocean without stopping for coal.
The great nations are taking strides in
subsidizing the traffic in the Pacific, pay
ing greater attention to the Pacific islands
than to Africa. Canada has recognized
the value of the commerce of the Pacific
and has started four steamship companies
from Vancouver, ami every effort is being
made to push traffic. Mr. Thurston said
one ot the means of establishing closer re
lations with Hawaii was by building the
proposed cable. This he earnestly advo
