jcixje Tut it man when on the su-
preme bench of Ohio, gave h'<i opinion
of the for e and effect of the common
law of England iu which h* »nys:
"The English common law. no far a*
it Is reasonable in itself, suitable to the
condition aad business of our people,
and consistent with the letter ami spirit
•f •nr tsderal and state constitutions sua
statutes, has been and is followed br our
courts, and nay be said to constitute a
part of the common law of Ohio. But
wherever it has been found wanting in
either «f these requisites, our courts have
n»t hesita'ed to modify it to suit our cir-
cumstances, or. if necessary, to wholly
depsrt from it."
This opinion shows the judge not to be
trammeled by precedents or hoary tradi-
tions, but alive to new ideas and the
growth of circumstances surrounding.
Th* Times is haTiug translated the
new miuiug code of Mexico, and will
Issue it in pamphlet form next week—
price, two dollars. It is a tery valuable
book to those who are interested in mines
U Mexico, or who contemplate gtioli an
investment. Orders sent to the Tikes
office will meet with prompt attention.
The members of the legislature pass-
ed the per diem sad mileage bill without
any discission, or without any adverse
votes. It is strsnge, but never the less
true, how a "fellow feeling'1 makes us
wondrous kind. The Kimbrough bill
against the practice of carrying conceal-
ed weapons, makes this practice an of
fence under penalty of a flae of not, less
than one hundred dollars, nor more than
five hundred. The bill alio makes it a
penitentiary offence for any persoa to
carry or exhibit any pistol, knife orbrsss
knucks at any church, muster, lecture,
ball, or at any voting place during an
election. That arrest, msy be made for a
violatioa of the felony clause on credible
information to an officer, and further
provides that if an officer on such infor
mation or on his|own knowledge refuses
to make the arrest, he shall be liable to
be fined In an amount not less than tlfty
■or more than one hundred dollars
Those are tho main features of the bill,
sad the impression prevails tnat it will
become a law.
The members from the west and fron-
tier counties are making a strong tight
for keeping the ranger force intact, but
it seems a foregone conclusion that if not
all retired and wiped out, it will be so
•masculated as to be powerless to stop
the shocking murders along the Rio
Grande. Tho legislature seems inclined
to attack the law granting charters of in
corporation, and so amend the same ss
to make It more difficult to procure char-
ters. This question is one which should
he handled with careful thought. The
combination of capital has much 'to do
with the development of a state. Of-
ten when smarting nnder one excess, we
fly to the opposite extreme, which
equally as hurtful.
By the extract takeu from the Alta
California, it will be seen that tho sub
Ject of Irrigation even in the chamber of
commerce of San Francisco takes pre
cedent* of all other questions, and it
seems to us that the same reasons should
hold good In our case. We trust the Im
portance of this measure will not be over
looked, or lest sight of by our western
members of the legislature. The Alta
From the number of Important subjects
named for consideration, the meeting of
the tan Francisco chamber of commerce
which is to bo held this afternoon at!
O'clock, should be oue of great interest
The proposed national baukrnpt law, the
Australian mail service, the Spanish
American reciprocity treaty, the Taiual
pals signal station, and bills of lading are
sorno of the subjects upon which sction
is to be taken. But there is another o
still greater importance, viz.: Irrigation
legislation. When the representatives of
the lrrigstion interests met in convention
last month to formulate their demands,
they acknowledged to themselves, in
view of the obstructions which had al
ready so often proved fatal to this legis-
lation, that successs was Improbable
Villain th»y could have the support..
the business interests of San Francisco.
Those interests, they felt, were jnst as
■such, if not quite so directly, Interested
In the progress of the lower counties of
tho state as the people living in them,
tad therefore the irrigators looked to the
commercial bodies of 8au Francisco to
utter a vigorous protest against the policy
•f permitting tho streams of the state te
remain in the grasp of the ripariinWu,
benefiting nobody, while the plains are
wduced to arid barrenness for lack ot the
water. Not to settle the irrigation trou-
bles st thl» session of the legislature will
be to keep thousands of people out of the
•tftttand postpone the revival of business
la Sat Francisco. It i« in the light
•och facts as these that the chamber
oo amerce is asked to tske action. j
The people of Albuquerque are having
a lively time in trying to defeat the col-
lection of taxes levied to pay interest on
the capital and penitentiary bonds. The
sheriff of the county has been ordered by
the governor to proceed to collect this
tax, and the tax-payers expect to stay
him by an injunction until the legality of
theic bonds can be tes ed and determined
In the courts.
THE TEXAS & PACIFIC RAILWAY.
The gubernatorial timber in Arizona
seems to be exceedingly plentiful. The
Arizona Star says there are thiiteen can-
didates in the tield,six candidates for sec-
retary, four for United States marshal,
tweenty-eight ,or United States attornej
and about two hundred for the minor
places. The flat of President Cleveland
will necessarily be a blight to the hopes
of many of ihege applicants. As our
neighbor says, "in«n\' think they sre
called,butfew will be chosen." It is but an
illustration of the hopefulness of man's
nature, as4Pope wrote: "Hope springs
e'erusl in the human breast; man never
is, but always to be blest."
