A Notable Gain [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
A Notable Gain The steady improvement in the ! wheat market promises to supple- ! ment the largest crop ever produced \in this section, with a fair, paying ' price. Reckoning the wheat crop of Murray Township, this year, at j 50,000 tons, we should, at one dolI lar net, per cental, receive there j for, $1,000,000, while every cent lof advance from this price would | amount to $10,000. Thus, at *1.12 1 (the lowest for which wheat sold in livermore this season) our crop would bring $1,125,000, while at §1.35, the price offered here to-day, we should, did we sell, realize the snug little sum of $1,---350,000. Thus, in a little over four weeks, the wheat product of Murray Township for the season of 1880 has appreciated in value just $275,000. In other words, our farmers, should they sell their grain to-day, would have over a quarter of a million dollars more spending money in their pockets, than if they had sold a month since. This is indeed an encouraging prospect, speaking, as it does...
County Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
County Advertising. From almost every newspaper in Alameda county, excepting the j Tribune, and Times, of Oakland,' we hear some dissatisfaction as to &gt; the manner in which the county advertising is at present being done. At their regular weekly session, a reporter of the Oakland Times is presen}, whose duty is to take a report of the proceedings of the Board, which report is published in said paper, and for which the sum of fifty cents per square is. paid. Inasmuch as the reporter is j working for the Times, and not to j the interest of the people of Ala- j meda county, he naturally has ex- J tremely long reports. If John Doe iof Eden township sends in a long j ! report, which interests no one in ' the world but said Doe, and no one : reads, it is passed to the reporter i for publication, and for which the I county pa* s fifty cents per square, ilf the Board debates on some tri- ! fling matter, their conversation is ! published in full, and although it i interests no one...
William E. Bargie. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
William E. Bargie. j This insignificant apology for a j journalist has had his ''Republican conscience" disturbed, so he says, in his spurious sheet of Wednesday evening last, and it is a pity. His Republican conscience was not disturbed when he entered into a syndicate with J. B. Wyman, of the Oakland Times, to rob Alameda county out of several thousand dollars for printing the county delinquent tax list, and for which he implicated, in his attempted crime, ; several papers, but failed to corrupt the Livermore Herald. Dargk's Republican conscience was not disturbed last Sunday evening, when he requested the editor of the Enterprise to reconcile the Livermore Herald man, in order that a steal might be arranged foj the publishing of the same tax list in '81. When we informed him that we would not enter into anything of the kind, his Republican conscience was in reality affected. The action of the Livermore paper is one which deserves the highest commendation, and, had the Enterprise ...

Talks, with Workingmen. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
Talks, with Workingmen. NUMBER TrtO. Among the evils of the present I day in many classes is a lack of! honesty. This is evinced in different ways. In public men in a readiness to take bribes and sell position and influence; in some by a readiness to rob on the highway, pick pockets, etc. Among workingmen the only dishonest tendency I can see is that which shows itself in the effort to get money without giving in return a fair equivalent; in other words by shirking. This is a very common evil indeed. There are few men who do as good work when their employer is absent as ! when he is present and inspecting their work. This is a very grievous error. This makes employers suspicious and disposed to crowd his men. Let the workingmen -cc that they are not guilty of this. | Industry and faithfulness are \ always recognized, and the opposite | qualities are just as readily seen, j Let this be a matter of principle. ! and it will certainly be beneficial to our laboring men.

A Literal Mexican. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
A Literal Mexican. One of our Eastern exchanges tells this story: Wickedly anxious to obey orders j to the letter was a Mexican taking I the stand in a New York police i court, ns a witness in an assault case; Having informed the Judge that lie spoke English, he was told ' to state what he knew of the affair in question. Thereupon the prosecuting attorney, an Irishman by birth, quite unnecessarily intervened with: "Ye onderstand, sor, that ye are to go on and state to the coort what ye know about the ease in j your language.'' "You want me to tell the story in my own language? asked the witness. "Yes, sor, I do,"' replied the lawyer. The Mexican began: "Este mujur quenia a mi casa— "What is that ye're saying?" exclaimed the attorney. "I am speaking in my own language, as you resquested me to do,'' was the reply. "I didn't mane for ye to spake your own language when I said for ye to spake yer own language/ exclaimed the legal gentleman. "Can't ye spake to me as I'm spakin' to ye?'' "...

Barn Burned. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880
Barn Burned. . i A barn on the ranch of Mrs. Arabella I Tipple, five miles east of tbis place, was 1 burned to the ground, early last Sunday 1 morning. The building had been cleared of its contents, with the exception of a few harnesses, hut the day previous, with the intention of filling it with hay, and i the loss was therefore not large. The in- . mates of the house were asleep at the | time, and were only made aware of the ; fire when awakened by neighbors. There \ is no tenable theory as to the origin of the fire, other than that it was the work of an incendiary. No insurance. 1

County News. Oakland. A. S Scott, an employe in the office of G. W. McKnead, searcher of records, cut his throat in East Oakland on Sunday. He was suffering from delirium tremens. Since the passage of the Ordinance prohibiting boys from getting on and off the steam cars while in motion, matters have been very quiet all along the line. The practice is virtually broken up. Matt Lynch, the fourteen-year old son of Belle Lynch, the ex editress, who stole a horse and buggy in Oakland some three months since, was sentenced by Judge Greene on Saturday to three years in the State prison. The contract for the work of raising the seawalls of the Oakland Harbor has been let to Dennis Jordan. The work will be commenced about October 20th, and about 150 men will be employed. The new Masonic Temple is fast assuming an air of elegant finish.
