HI ''wJBh i llfe Tll disposition of the country is to hold up
Wt !'ImI tlie Presi(lQnt' hands. Then the Democracy very
H i'lH foolishly gave notice that if they could this year
Wk ' 'TO H! obtain control of Congress, their purpose was to

K ir J J ; of this and are trying to fix up some new issues

B jR! ? Sherman's account of the leading up to and
B fflB killing of James King of William Ip not quite the
B wl ful1 tory'- Ho tolls now JamQs King of William
established the Bulletin, and attacked abuses, how
he finally published an article which was the re
cord of the conviction and imprisonment in New
York of James Casey, who had established a lit
tle paper in San Francisco and who was a ward
politician. How Casey went to the Bulletin office
and told James King of William that he would
shoot him on sight and how he did shoot him,
which started the vigilance committee.
The facts- aro these: The Bulletin as run by
James King of William was a tough paper. It
slashed and slashed at everybody. The decent
people of San Francisco would not have it in their
homes. A compositor on the Buljetin told Casey
that an article was in type in the Bulletin office
giving his record in New York. Casey went to
the Bulletin office, told James King of William
that it was true that when a boy ho had been
convicted of a crime and punished; but that when
he left home he told his old mother that he
would henceforth live an upright life, and he
added: "I have come to say to you that you are
welcome to publish anything you may find in my
record since I arrived here, but to ask you if
you will not on account of my mother suppress the
publication of that old New York record." At that
King ordered him out of the office, whereupon
Casey said: "If you do publish the old story I
will hold you personally responsible for it."
I.'ng not only published it, but told in the
same paper of Casey's threats and added that he
should leave his office at a certain hour, and by
what streets he should go home.
Casey met him, gave him notice to defend him
self and shot him through the shoulder. The doc
tors in their anxiety over their patient kept him
stupefied with morphine for a few days when he
The revulsion of sentiment was Immediate and
terrible. People who would not permit the Bulle
tin in their homes the day before, at once became
the champions of It, to them King became a
martyr; the vigilance committee was organized;
four men were hanged and many more were ban
ished, and San Francisco was practically under
seige for four months.
New York merchants lost more from San Fran
cisco merchants that year than they had before
The bullotin of congratulations sent out by
Chairman Salisbury, reads like that issued by
the first Napoleon after Austorlltz. Some of its
paragraphs are striking. As, for, instance, that
which speaks for "those loyal people who have
never deserted the grand old party." That is not
only striking but touching. That no doubt meant
the true and tried Republicans who for ten years
past have claimed to bo Democrats just for the

A victory wrought in shame through dishoi or,
through broken faith, through practically en
dorsing what the first Republican National plat
form declared was a relic of barbarism; through
taking the right hand of fellowship with a chief
of a band of slaves, one who robs widows, who
speaks for the degradation of women and Hie
shame of children; to owe an election to the faor
of such an one and the work of his slaves, and to
do it in the name of the grand old Republican
party. Great God!
