Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 30 December 1880

Tlie Contra Costa Gazette, in a lengthy editorial, contends that the Legislature is authorized to order & special election for county otlicers at any timo during the coming year of ISSI, and states that it is reasonable to expect that it will do co. As will be seen by the report of the proceedings of the last meeting of the Board of Supervisors, in another column, an effort is being made to change the railroad crossing in the canyon below Pleasanton, to a less dangerous locality. This is a wise move, and should have been made years ago, before any accidents occurred. This is the most dangerous crossing in this county, and now that the attention of the Board has been called thereto, a change of locality for the better will undoubtedly be made. If the farmers and wheat-holders generally of this State could and would now, with one accord, stop forwarding wheat to San Francisco, and continue the blockade for one month, the outrag >US freight combination which is n...

Camron, of Oakland, and several other gentlemen, visited the State Deaf and Dumb Asylum at Berkeley, in this county.

Without a moment's hesitation, the girl stepped forward and wrote as follows: FEIKN'DihIP. Friendship is something diffei ent from love. The former is pre dneed by the sympathy existing be tween any two persons; the latte is kindled by the charms of its ot ject. True friendship is always ir Hi xible.

Our Washington Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 30 December 1880

Our Washington Letter. W AsmxGTOx, D. C, Dec. 20,1580. A fiery gentleman like Mr. Beck ! sometimes lias his way for a day or two in the Senate, but very soon J the customary dignity and heaviI ness of the body assert themselves. An elephant could dance on a tight rope w irh as much grace a 8 I the Senate could transact in any but the deliberate and orderly | manner customary with it. One I day last week Mr. Beck clamored vociferously against a holiday reI cess ami w hen the House resolution I came over proposing an adjournment for two weeks, he denounced it loudly. Some of the Senators, perhaps awakened by the noise, voted against the resolution. But a day or two of consideration, and a recollection that there has almost always been a two weeks' recess, will change all that. I expect the vote of last week will be reversed this evening or to-morrow, and that Congress wi!' stand adjourned from the 22d of December to the sth of January. Among Department clerks here there is a growing f...
