A GOOD MEASURE IN DANGER
It was supposed that tho internationn
copyright bill had passed all breakers, a
shoals and reefs, and had got into smoot
water. After passing one house of Con
gress, and getting into the hands of
friendly committee in the other, it aud
deuly encounters a squall that may de
feat it by postponement.
The lithographers have intervened am
want riders put upon tho bill favoring
them, and threaten that if it is not done
they will fight tho bill. They menace the
measure on the ground that type-setters
are protected by the bill, and, therefore
picture-makers should be favored also
Now, the picture-maker is not essentia
to literature, but the type-setter is. S
far as the picture-maker contributes t
the finish of a book, he is assisted by th
bill. But to go outside of the book line
and require exchange of copyrights on
pictures, will require the return of th
bill to the House with Senate amend
nients, aud that will insure its defeat.
So far as the reciprocity doctrine is con
cerned we would be pleased to hay
lithographers, photographers, and all art
included, and anything else upon, whic:
just reciprocal exchange cau be based
But it is not at all necessary to put th
lithographers aud morocco manufactur
ere, and thread-makers, and binders and
all other trades and manufactures into
the copyright bill. That measure relates
only to the question of property in brains
its recognition and protection upon tho
What have these lithographers been
doing all these years? Why have they
remained silent until just as the bill is
about to become law, and then dashed in
and demanded recognition in it. They
ought to bo refused with suddenness and
emphasis, and if they are able to revenge
themselves upon literary men, let them
do it and defeat tho bill. If they can bear
the odium, let them have full measure
As is well said, it is the old story, this
letting the trade unions into the bill, o
the Arab and the camel. Tho animal's
head was admitted to the tent and then i
•was impossible to exclude its body, and
the owner was driven at last to seek other
quarters. Why the unions should med
dle with the matter is not understandable.
The Typographical Union had warrant
for consideration since book making
affects it directly, and there is a close
relationship between publisher, author
If the lithographers are recognized in
the bill, so, too, should be every trade
remotely or nearly contributing to the
making of a book. There is no reason
the unions should not demand the expan
sion of the reciprocal doctrine. What
they can do to swell our export trade
they should do, but it is outrageous to
declare that printers and authors shall
not enjoy the benefits of a reciprocal pol
. icy nnder a given measuro because all
trades are not recognizod in the bill spe
JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS.
As an illustration of the readiness of |
some journals to reach conclusions at a I
bound, the following from the San Fran
cisco Chronicle is given:
The State ban evidently been vorv badly
huiubujrced on this subject, and it will not be
strange if the report of the Assembly commit
tee■shall lend to radical changes. The State of
California could better ufford to buy text
books and give them to publiiisenool children
out and out than to niauulucture them on any
such plan as has been pursued for the na.s"t I
flvo or six years. *^v
Yet that expression was made upon the I
basis of an expert report dated October 1,
ISB7, while the State only entered upon
the issuance of school books January I,'
1867. Yet with the report dates staring it
In the lace, the Chronicle speaks editori
ally as if the so-called expose rolated to \
five or six years, thus impressing readert
who do not know the facts with a false
Idea of the matter.
Nor did the Chronicle stop for
a moment to compare the prices
for books in the nine months
covered by the expert's report, with the
prices that have been charged since then.
Nevertheless it states that it is "shown
conclusively that text-books were sold at
less than one-fourth their actual .cost to
the State, and that the truth was con-
cealed by deceitful entries in the books
oftheoflice." Nothing of the kind has
been shown. The expert report Is
error; it was never completed, and it did
not cover half the field and the expert
himself states this latter fact. That in
one of the earlier short administrations in
the State Printing Office there was bad
management, wrong estimating and a
falling behind of some $13,000, everbody
knew. It was at the time reported, com
mented upon, and widely published.
But no one, until within a few days has
claimed that it had any relation to the
principle involved in the State preparing
text-books tor the schools. That short
age is no more chargeable to the school
book system than would bad bookkeep
ing in the Chronicle office be chargeable
to the editorial opinions of that paper.
The Chronicle's blunderings is not,
probably, an evidence of any antagonism
on its part to the idea of State text-books
—it is simply the result of sensational
haste and a disposition to search for
mares' nests. Unfortunately, however,
the effect of such publications is not
measurable by the motive that prompts
Two men have been found at last with
sufficient courage to refuse to obey the
mandate ot the robber, "hands up."
Both these men reside in San Francisco.
One of them is a saloon-keeper and the
other a street-ear conductor. The saloon
keeper not only refused to put up his
hands, but knocked aside the half-masked
robber's pistol and proceeded to break in
the rascal's head with a counter scale's
weight. This is probably the same rob
ber who has entered several stores in San
Francisco for two weeks past and robbed
them, while he compelled the occupants
to sit silent and unresisting. His head is
now so battered that he will probably not
give the State the trouble to try him. In
the other case a gang of rowdies at
tempted, iii the very heart of the city in
broad day, to rob a street-car conductor,
ou his car, who resisted and called for
help, and the ringleader was pursued
There is in nearly all'cases of robbery,
submission on the part of the victim, be
cause the robber holds a weapon upon him.
Yet it is certain that if resistance were
made, the robber, in seven cases out of
ten, would lieo. Iv three cases ho
would probably fire upon the victim
to prevent capture. It is this minority of
chances that causes stalwart men to throw
up their hauds before even a stripling,
if an armed robber. When, therefore,
men are found who are willing to "take
the chances," and who do resist robbers,
they should have all praise and commend
ation, for every case of successful resist
ance greatly reduces tho liability of rob
bery being very soon again attempted in
the same city. The robber speculates
upon the submissiveness of his victim ;
he has learned that men greatly dread a
pistol aimed at their bodies, and that they
will yield up their property sooner than
provoke the thief to become a murderer.
Whenever one of tho gentry is success
fully resisted, however, it serves as a
deterrent influence upon other robbers,
and it thus conserves the safety of life
and property. It is not too much to do,
therefore, to praise men who resist the
robber, for they do so at some consider
able hazard, and they are animated by
A RAP AT THE McKISXEY BILL.
A fact should always bo looked In the
face. It is braver and safer than to evade
t. Probably the Sheep-Breedersl and
Wool-Growers' Association of Ontario
and Livingston counties New York so
believes. Its membership is more largely
Republican than Democratic, but politics
do not play much of a part in the associ
ation. The society has held twenty-four
annual meetings and is oho of the strong
est and best known to the trade. On the
Bth of January the society met at Honeoye
and the attendance was the largest of any
for many years. The tariff question and
the McKinley monstrosity were debated
fully, long and spiritedly, and finally a
preamble was drawn up reciting that
"the wool duty is a delusi6n and snare
to wool growers;" that the wool tariff of
1867 drove 50 per cent, of the sheep out of
eight of the chief wool-producing States,
in a single decade and so on. The reso
lution then followed, and it reads thus:
Recognizing the truth of the above iacts
therefore, wo, the members of the Ontario and
Livingston Sheep-Breeders' and Wool-Crow
crs' Association, In convention assembled
most respectfully petition Congress to immedi
ately place wool and woolen manufacture* on
tlw/ree list, in order that tiieir industries may
ogniu thrive and assume that magnitude
commensurate with a nation of 63,000 000
Now it is impossible for anyone to pre
serve self-respect and tell these wool men
that they do not know what they are
talking about. They do know; they
know by experience as well as by reason;
they know a great deal better than do the
gentlemen theorists upon the floor of
Congress. The resolution must be
accepted as the deliberate and sober ex
pression of men who are fully aware of
what is beneficial and what is injurious
to their business. The purpose of the
citation at this time is to point a moral—
that the McKinley bill is not sacred, and
that it is not high treason to declare it to
be a deceit
The Morning Call of San Francisco
falls into the same groove of error into
which the Chronicle plunged. That is, it
proceeds to talk gravely of Expert
Brown's report, which it says shows that
State text-books are sold at less than half
the cost. It is simply amazing that a
journal of the pretensions of the Call can
commit such a blunder. With the report
open before it, and dated October I,IBCT,
the Call talks of the sale of books as if
the rates that then obtained had been ad
hered to. If our contemporary had
paused for one moment to inform itself, it
would have discovered that the system of
State school books was not nine months
old wheu Brown exported tho Controller's
accounts relating to the school books: had
it recalled the Shoaff administration of the
Printing Office, it would have remem
bered that the Brown expert work was
SACBAMEKTQ DAILY BECOBD-gflQy, TUESDAY, FEBBUARY 10, 1891.---SES PAGES.
entered upon to ascertain why ShoafPs
accounts showed a discrepancy of §13,000.
The trouble in this" whole matter is that
journals treat mismanagement under a
printer, who was in offioe but a few
months, as something chargeable against
the system of the State furnishing the
people with text-books. The incompe
tency of a printer cannot have any rela
tion to the motive prompting the issuance
of a book.
Mrs. Kate Gahhktt Wells, in the
North American Review, claims that
higher education has affected marriage,
"inasmuch as It has opened new avenues
of employment for women, has fortified
thorn for life as a whole, and has led them
to regard marriage as an incident. It has
given girls a communistic feeling which
makes them prefer to teach where there
are other teachers rather than to live on a
hill-top and read-aloud to their parents,
or to retire to a farm or a tenement and
bake and brow for their husbands. The
higher education has separated marriage
and motherhood. Almost all women love
children and would gladly use their
knowledge for the delight and profit of a
family, but they do not want the inter
vening marriage." If the charge be ac
cepted as true, then higher education of
woman is deplorably at fault. It ought
to be a part and parcel of that mental and
intellectual training to instill into the
mind the wholesomeness, sacredness,
naturalness, necessity and value of mar
riage. It ought to inspire in woman
higher regard for it and for humanity,
greater desire to enter into it, and for bet
ter performance of duty when iv it, than
ignorance and the lack of training do.
The education, no matter what it is, that
trains away from domesticity and mother
hood, is bad and worthy of all condemna
tion. It erects false ideals, kindles hopes
impossible of realization, stifles natural
instincts and makes the woman less than
Hamilton feared that we would bo
farmers only. Were he now alive how
he would hasten to recall his prophesy.
In 1790 we took our first census, and
found that only 3 per cent, of the people
lived in towns of 8,000 inhabitants and
upwards. Now we learn from the census
of 1890 that 30 per cent, of our people re
side in towns of 8,000 population and
over. Instead of becoming a nation of
farmers, we are losing the farmer class,
rural life is dying out and urban life is
augmenting abnormally. By tariffs and
neglect we have so discriminated against
the farmer that he crowds into tho city to
escape the penalties of farm life—penalties
not naturally attaching to it, but that our
system has entailed upon it. Russia,
with a greater population than ours, has
but four cities of 200,000 inhabitants or
over—we have sixteen. Germany, with
250 people to the square mile, has but eight
cities whose population exceeds 200,000.
We have twonty-one people to the square
mile, but we have three cities of moro
than a million inhabitants. If a stalwart
yeomanry is the true bulwark of a nation,
then our bulwarks need strengthening

Patti Rosa, the young American actress
who has acquired such an enviablo repu
tation in this country, will appear this
evening at the? Metropolitan Theater in a
new comedy drama entitled "Imp," the
work of that great favorite and much
talented dramatist, the late Fred.Marsden,
and which has been carefully revised by
that equally talented playwright, Clay M
Greene. It was written with the view to
give the little actress an opportunity for
the display of her varied talents in their
most attractive form. The plot is de-
scribed as an unusually clever one in
which the scenes and incidents follow
each other in natural sequence, and with
climaxes of remarkable power.
Patti Rosa's triumphs have not been
restricted to America alone. Great
Britain has freely acknowledged her ar
tistic work, and made her many tempting
oners to repeat her visit. Dunne her en
gagement at the Strand Theater, London,
which house was then under the manage
ment of the famous English comedian,
Charles \\ yndham, that gentleman made
her a proposition to remain at his housp
for an indefinite period. Patti Rosa is
ambitious, determined, untiring. "I

uppermost in her mind and conscien
tiously observed. That; is the key of her
great success, the secret of her ever in

SOUTHERN CITRUS PAIR.
l<os Angeles Determined on a Grand
The Executive Committee of the State
€itrus Fair for the Sixth Congressional
District, which opens three weeks hence,
have issued a bulletin in which they say:
..It is generally conceded that the two
citrus fairs held in the northern part of
the State, the first at Oroville, in 1890, and
the second at Marysville, in 1891, were
thoroughly successful from a popular
point of view—that is to say, they were
attended by immense numbers of people.
There can be no doubt that this result
was achieved largely through the attract
iveness of the display—the working out
of elaborate designs and the elegant dec
oration of the building. Nearly every
locality, which has thus far entered tho
uste for the fair in Los Angeles, in March
has announced its intention of making
Us exhibit in some form which will not
only serve as a medium for the display
of its best fruit, but will at the same time
satisfy the public taste for the beautiful.
Ine management of the fair will co-oper
ate with any section in its efforts in this
direction, advising with regard to design,
allowing adequate space, and providing
materials to be used in construction of
the frame work iree of charge. To this
same end special premiums have been
ottered by the committee for the most ar
tistic display of citrus fruits: First, $150
--5S? n«i-*"s' U ilird- *'r '< fourth- S50' a»d
nun, &£>. Six localities have already de
cided upon their designs, and several
more have the matter under active dis
"The committee will spare no expense
in decorating the building to be in perfect
harmony with the displays. It is pro
posed to show our visitors and our own
people not only the finest citrus fruit in
the largest quantities over gathered to
gether, but also tho most artistic and
beautiful display of the same. It will be
an orange palnce, rivaling in splendor
the ico, coal and corn palaces of various
cities of tho East."
