Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 April 1881
The Central Pacific R. R. companies have handed to the Com missioners an agreement to the reduction of about twenty per cent, in the rates on wheat, barley, rye, corn, sheep, cattle, etc., on their main and leased lines. From recent developments, and present p»o&lt;-peets. tbe construction of at least one railroad through this Valley, within the next year, seems almost a fzed fact. Both of the two proposed new roads are backed by heavy capitalists, and as their interests are not condicting, we may soon see both here, There is no other practicable, short way across the Coast Range, and the presence here of inexhaustable coal miues, makes this, in fact, the only route. If both roads are built—and one will certainly be—they must pass through i ur Valley and town. The»j&gt;i£ce of hay still keeps at an minimally high figure, for this time of year, aud those of our farmer.- who cut early, bale soon as practicable, and place their hay upon the market at the earliest possib...

Railroad Rumors. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 April 1881
Railroad Rumors. During the past few weeks, the air of our county seat has been rife with rumors of new railroad projects, the lines of which would terminate in that city. It is almost impossible to as yet, learn anything really definite, but everything now points to the speedy construction of two new lines—one a narrow, and the other a broad gauge. For the building of the first named, a company has already been formed, in San Francisco, with A. E. Davis, of the S. P. C. R. R. Co., at its head. This company proposes to build a narrow gauge from Oakland, over the hills into San Ramon Valley, thence on to Dublin and Livermore, and from there, to the Livermore Coal Mines, and by way of Corral Hollow Pass, to the San Joaquin Valley, and Modesto. Front thence, the road will strike for Sonora, and by a pass in the Sierras, strike Bodie, and tap the great system of narrow gauge roads in Nevada and Utah, by which means freight could be carried direct to San Francisco without breaking bulk. ...
Our Washington Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 April 1881
Our Washington Letter. Washington, D. C, ) April 18, 1881. j&gt; Out of reports of Senator Blame'- illness the imaginative correspondents have drawn a conclusion that Mr. Blame is dissatisfied with his surroundings, and is preparing a way to escape from them. There is nothing in what the public knows to justify any sueli idea. On the contrary, White House visitors bring reports daily that the President like the Secretary of State, considers local disagreeaments in the Republican party to be of slight account. Just what either of these geutlemen thinks of the condition affairs in the Senate, by which the confirmation of Presidential nominations is prevented, cannot be learned, but there is no reason for believing that they differ on that point. So is it safe to discredit rumors concerning Mr. Blame's place in the Cabinet. A daily paper here gives with much particularity this morning certain alleged pieces of advice given by President Garfield to Senators, to the_ effect that ...
A Literary Revolution Challenge. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 April 1881
A Literary Revolution Challenge. The old-line publishers have, very naturally, not been well pleased with the now famous enterprise, ''The Literary Revolution and in deprecation of its character have laid stress upon the claim that in cheapening books so vastly it is against the interests of American authors. The Revolution boldly meets this assertion by statements as follows: Ist. That they are already paying to American authors more money than any other publishing house that is less than twenty-live years established. 2d. That American authors rarely receive from publishers a copyright exceeding 10 per cent upon the retail price of their books actually sold. 3d. That at least one-half, and probably more nearly three-fourths, of the bcoks published by American authors have been published at the author's expense, the publishers furnishing no money, and paying no copy-right, but themselves receiving a large percentage upon sales made. 4th. That they propose hereafter to pay to Americ...

The petition states that the road is, and has been all winter in an impassable condition for teams by reason of the Tassajara Creek being filled up to such an extent that the water floods the road. Mr. Hanifin moved to refer the petition to the Committee on roads and bridges. Mr. Gr...

A Sensational Would-Be Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 April 1881
A Sensational Would-Be Suicide. While Dr. L. 11. Cutler was quietiy sitting in his drug store at this place, about eight o'clock last Friday morning, the door was suddenly thrown open, and a man rushed in, with his throat cut. and blood streaming from a half-dozen deep knife wounds. S-nnewhat surprised at so startling aud bloody an apparition, the Doctor stepped forward, and caught the man just as he staggered aud fell heavily to the floor. Checking the flow of blood, and administeiing stimulants, the Doctor soon brought the much-haggled individual to consciousness, and placed him out of danger. His throat was found to be fairly hacked to pieces, having been pierced by a kuife-blade six or eight times on the left, and once on the right side. The wounds were all deep, and but for the bluntness of tho knife, would have proved fatal. The mystery surrounding this truly remarkable occurrence, in a country town, is cleared up as follows: About six weeks ago. this man, for some years a res...
