Keep Clear op It. We notice some
cheap printing' on the wall to auuoitnae
the fuct that Welsh & Collier's clruus
will appear in our town on the 13th.
No representative ot the how baa
called at this ottlce to secure advertis
lag or priutins or to loave the usual
free tickets. We are therefore BtitiafUttl
that it In a snide coucorn and should be
given the cold cut. A show of any sort
which sneaks past a nowspupor otllee
is a fraud on the publio and bhould be
o troutod. Lot no one sink his tanu
hood by pntronizing Welsh & Collier.
Later Since the above was in type
we have received a call from Mr.
George Do Vol, the handsome, accom
plished and liberal-minded agent ot
this circus. v Ho loft fifteen tree tickets
with us, contracted for a column ad.
and gave us tho printinff of 2,000 date
lines. The circus, as wo are happy to
tate, is one of the best in the country,
and we trust that every man, woman
and child for twenty miles around will
turn out to patronize It
We Took Wateii The old imbecile
who publishes the diah-ra? journal
down the street is out this week In a
scare-head article relating to us. It
Is in rotation to that little affair at
Yancey's one night last week. The
dish-rag says we played the purt of a
coward, and advises that we be treated
with contempt Let us explaiu. We
dropped into Yancey's gambling house
to pick up a few subscribers. Wo ran
across Hill Thomas, familiarly known
as "Shoot-You-Dead William," and the
first think we know he had a revolver
at our nose aud was asking us to take
back something. We hadn't a clear
Idea of what he wanted us to retract,
but we took back every thing we could
think of, and we weren't over two min
utes about It, either. When a man who
has made it his practice of killing fifty
two men every year for the last twenty
fears has the drop on us we are going
to take water every time, and do it
gracefully, two. If that's the part of a
coward, then the dish-rag has hit us
There is a Change. Some of our
old pioneers boast that they are im
pervious td t-ivilizatioa, and that phil-
anthrophy and sentiment have found
no lodging place bore. And yet we
can see that a change is going on de
spite theso boasts. The other night
when the boys caught Comanche Dill
and got ready to pull him up to a Cot
tonwood, half a dozen of the crowd in
terfered and demanded to know the
reason why he was being lynched. It
was duly explained that he was a
worthless kuss who was a barnacle on
society, and that the boys hadn't had
any fun for several weeks, and yet that
hanging didn't go off. The crow d was
made to lot Bill off on his promise that
he would skip the town or go to work,
A year ago he would have been hung
without a word of inquiry or protest
We believe that the mawkish sentiment
of the East is creeping this way, and
that it will, in time, upset our most

RECONCILED BY MUSIC.
An Incident of th I'ouquiMt of California
bjr the VnlUU Htato.
The Spanish and Indian Californians
were passionately fond of music. All
the men could make shoes and play the
guitar, and every woman could sing
tipanlsh songs to her own accompaau
ment Bancroft, lb his "California
Pastoral," tells how the people, after
the conquest of the country by the
United states were reconciled to the
new rule by music.
The Californians were invited to re
turn to their homes and resume their
usual occupations. Proclamations
. which promised protection of their
persons and property were placarded
in the towns, but they would not come
out of their hiding-places.
The Commodore whose naval force
had helped to conquer the country was
at Los Angeles, and, meeting Captain
Phelps, an old trader on the coast, re
quested his beip.
'Commodore,-' replied the captain,
"you have a fine band on your ship,
and such a thing was never before in
this' country. Let it play one hour in
the plaza each day at sunset and I as
sure you it will do more toward recon
ciling the people than all your procla
mations, which few of them can read."
The captain's suggestion was adopted.
At first the children came forth and
peeped around he corners of the
houses. A few lively tusos brought on
the vivas of the oldor ones, and before
the band ceased playing they were sur
rounded by delighted natives.
The next afternoon the plaza was
thronged with the people of the' town,'
nd with ranebmen from a distance,
who, having heard of the wonderful
band, had ridden in. The old priest
of the mission of San Gabriel, as ho sat
by the church door opposite the plaza
listening to the music, was introduced
to several of the naval officers.
"I have not heard a band," said the
old man, "since I left Spain over fifty
years ago. Ah! that music will do
more service in the conquest of Cali
fornia than a thousand bayonets."
