This friend of tho poorago Mould
turn over in his grave if ho could
know tho propositions which have
been mado In Great Britain to abol
ish the house of lords as a legislative
body. Ho evidently believed that
that body had sonic useful purpose
to subserve; and possibly it hail in
his day; but at tho present time its
usefulness isn very doubtful quantity-
The reform party in England has
taken strong ground against irres
ponsible hereditary legislators, and
all tho logio at least is on their side.
Tho tory ministry, howover, is not
willing to meet tho issuo squarely,
but proposes to evado it, and to
make a sortj of compromise by in
creasing tho number of life peers;
that is, those whoso titles become
extinct with tho death of their hold
ers. There would seem to bo various
objections to this plan, tho llrst of
which is that it does not eliminate
in any way from tho Upper llouso
those who now sit there by right of
hereditary descent. It cannot be,
supposed that the plan is to appoint
enough life peers to outvote tho
hereditary peel's, and it seems that
tho only result would bo to increase
tho numerical streugh of tho house
of lords without in any respect cur
ing tho evil of which complaint is
made. Perhaps Lord Salisbury has
in view, too, the formation of a con
tingent which would bo solidly tory
and which would net as a check on
tho house of commons when It
again comes under liberal control.
In another aspect of tho case this
now plan will excite much com
ment. France, which has made
trial of life senators, has abandoned
tho scheme, and lu tho future tho
A'acancies that may occur In llfoson
atorships aro to bo tilled by election,
the now senators to sit only for tho
regular senatorial term. If Franco
has found it expedient to abandon
tho system it would seem like retro
gression in tho science of govern
ment for England to take It up.
Tho truth is that tho house of
lords in its legislative capacity is
at variance with tho spirit of repre
sentative government; and tho fund
amental objection to It, namely,
that it Is not representative, cannot

W. J. Culver completed a success
ful term of school at Wheatland Fri
day; and is visiting among tho boys
to-day. Mr. Culver spent sevoral
years In the University and lu tho
present campaign aspires to tho
olllco of county surveyor, on tho
republican ticket. Ills many
friends, not only wish him success
but will lend their aid, regarding) of
what may bo their political views,
bo removed by adding toils m
by appointment. This is the real
cause of complalntngalnsttho house
of lords, even more than its hered
itary character. It might bo pre
sumed that the eldest son of a dis
tinguished peer would naturally
follow in his lather's footsteps, anil
try at least to preserve tho traditions
ot his race; but tho fact that he
represents, not the people of (jrcul
Britain, but hlmselt and his order,
Is tho really insuperable objection to
his acting as a legislator.
Much of tho old time reverence for
the house of lords lias disappeared.
There was a timo when tho sove
reign was forced to roly on tho lords
to act as a bulwark to tho throne
and a shield from popular attack;
but all that is done away with, and
Victoria rolgns, not by rlglit ol des
cent nor by tho consent of tho peer

Rural Califernia: Mr. Lonoy's
two acres of six-year-old prune trees
Is tho finest sight of anything! have
seen In tho prune lino. Two years
ago the fruit from those two acres
sold for $13.") on the tree. There
were eighteen tons of green fruit.
Thoy were bought by parlies who
dried them. Last year the crop was
not so heavy, but still it brought $100
an acre, or au average for the two
years of $180 an acre. Ho dried his
prunes tills last season, and this Is his
methed: First dip tho gathered fruit
Into boiling lye ono pound Ameri
can concentrated lyo to fifty gallons
of water. Blnso In clean, cold water
and spread in cheese cloth on the
ground to dry. When nearly dry
lake hold of tho edges of the cloth,
and throw the prunes Into a pile lu
tho center of the cloth, throwing tho
edge of tho cloth over them, and let
them cure ten days. Then put them
into 000-pound boxes to sweat. Mr.
Ioney says ho never, no never,
prtinosa prune tree. I suppose from
the fact that tho tree Is all prune.
He sometimes cuts out a cross limb
on tho inside, but never cuts back
from the time of planting to the
harvesting of the fruit on tho ma
ture trees. The long limbs loaded
with fruit, gradually bond ovor till
tho lips pointdownward. Ho creates
a support part way up tho limbs by
tying one end of a piece of baling
roo on a limb, passing It once
around the next limb, ami so on un
til he gets around the tree, when he
ties It at the beginning point. This
makes a supporting hoop of bailing
rope. Mr. honey would plant primes
lu this soil lu preference to anything
else. But here comes au item of In
formation which, If heeded by the
new-comer, may be worth to him a
great many dollars. Part of Mr.
Loney's trees, whon set out, were
yearlings and part were two-years-olds,
but all from the saino nursery
and grown under tho sumo condi cendi condi
teons: but now at hIx years old, tho
yearling trees are tho largest und
nicest trees. Hence, Mr. Lonoyiwys
never plant anything but a yearling
