The Re-Districting Question. Upon the next Legislature to convene in Sacramento immediately after New Year, devolve the labor of re-districting the State in accordance with the provisions of the new Constitution, the late census being made a basis therefor. The districts to be thus created will be as follows: National Congressional Districts; State—Senatorial and Legislative Districts; County —Supervisor Districts. In the boundaries of the Congressional Districts there will probably be but little change; in the Senatorial and Legislative Districts it will be most radical. The boundaries of the two latter will be generally, the same, two legislative being necessary to make one sena torial district. But one representative, bo he Senator or Assembly man, will be elected in each district, the electors voting at no one election for more than one member of each branch of the Legislature.

Good Time Coming. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

Good Time Coming. Everybody in California, and for that matter throughout the world is waiting for the good time coming. But it is undoubtedly true that the outlook for this State is better just now than at any time since the flush days of placer mining. California has passed through her period of transition. Her former prosperity was ephemeral and fluctuating. Its extent was co-equal with the period that placer mining was profitable But the prosperity that is now opening promises permanence. It may not be of the exhilerating character that marked the good old times of M 9. but it will last. It was impossible that the prospeiity of early times should be continuous. It was necessary for the development of the State. It served its purpose and prepared the way by establishing with foundations broad and deep tlie future prosperity of California. There is everything to encourage the people not only of this state but the whole Pacific Coast to look hopefully forward to the future. The min...
