Excerpt from The Industrial Interests of California: Being a Series of Letters Relating to Our Home Manufactures, Industrial Labor, Agricultural Progress and Material Interests

Editor Bulletin: - For twelve years successive Legislatures have left the aggregate result of their deliberations in our voluminous statutes. In all this mass of laws is the policy of the State unmistakably pointed out. Has not a large portion of the time of those supposed to be studying the State's best interest and advancement, been frittered away in aimless and desultory law making, tending more to individual gain than to the present and future prosperity of our State?

Thus at the end of twelve years' legislation, California is much like a strong, well-found, richly laden ship, sailing with every fair wind upon the ocean, but without any port of destination decided upon, the parties in command being engaged in quarreling over the bullion on board, thinking but little of the sales of the cargo entrusted to their charge, where the landfall is to be made, or what their after-lading is to be, while future repairs and portage bills are not thought of. The ship is well manned and found at present; when the time of renovation and short freights come, new men will be in command, and new men at the helm, and their responsibility will have ceased. California should have a policy, marked and distinct as her coast line, and comprehensive to embrace the variety of production in her agricultural and mining resources - a policy to which, however parties may differ in regard to our national administration, all should conform.

The present Legislature, elected more for their devotion to the Federal Union than to party creed, have it in their power to map out a course of action so publicly manifest to be beneficial to every interest and source of prosperity in our State, that future legislative bodies will, from public interest, be obliged to follow that line of State policy which the present Legislature can with great propriety unanimously decide upon. It is a point on which men of all parties can agree; one in which no party, as things now are, should claim preference; one that no party in power dare gainsay or abuse.
