Southern California continues to he the storm center of the state, and rain fell over the entire section throughout Thursday. The earth having been thoroughly saturated by the great storm of last Saturday, Sunday and Monday, the flood waters have turned what by courtesy have been called rivers, and which have been dry, sandy washes for years, into muddy, rushing streams. The greatest sufferers from the prolonged downpour are the railroads. Only one line, the Sunset route of the Southern Pacific east of Ix>s Angeles, is In operation, and trains over this line are traveling far behind schedules. The Santa Fe Is experiencing much trouble on its line between that city and Barstow, particularly at El Cajon Pass, where landslides have repeatedly buried the track beneath tons of rock and gravel loosened from ' rament ^ I the mountain sides by the heavy rains.

Washington Caspar Snavely died at the family residence on Cemetery avenue this morning about 3 o’clock. He had been confined to his bed about four weeks.

Seven weeks ago while feeding some horses in the (tarn one of them crowded him against the manger bruising % the stump so badly that an abscess‘formed. Several operations were resorted to with the hope of averting the consequences of blood poisoning, but they were all futile. Mr. Snavely suffered much pain during his last Illness, but his last hours were painless and he passed away peacefully, surrounded by the members of his family.

All It Is Expected to Do for Nothing Cannot Be Recounted. The newspaper is a free horse every interest expects to ride. If there is a public movement bearing along private interacts, the newspaper is expected to take it up and boom it at its own expense. The newspaper Is expected to put red paint on everybody's bobby and tickle the short ribs of every ambitious citizen. The newspaper is expected to slay some and spare others; to inject the lymph of enterprise into channels of sluggishness, and shock evil doers Into righteous living. lf the merchant bdls the chamber of commerce any article he expects to get his full pay for it promptly; bot a newspaper is expected to throw in columns of boom matter, to cheer the workers and keep every movement going when there is a slump in interest To enumerate what a newspaper Is expected to do "for nothing" is a tale too long to tell. The public will ask favors of a newspaper which they would not think of requesting at the hands of their butcher, their grocer, their doctor or their lawyer. The newspaper Is the hand wagon that the whole community rides in, and. generally, it is all at the newspaper’s expense. The Record ventures the assertion believing that it will be substantiated by the reliable press of the state, that taking Into consideration the amount of capital invested, the uncertainties of the newspaper field, the energy, patience and experience required to successfully conduct a newspaper, that there is not another business In the world that secures such inadequate returns.—Stockton Record.
