A RAILROAD INSANITY.
A learned Jewish Rabbi in the "Amer
ican Magazine of Civics" discourses in
terestingly of popular insanity, and
very truthfully says that insanity is
not confined to individuals but affects
communities and even nations.
As instances he cites the crimes
against humanity that shame the rec
ord of the middle ages; the frenzy about
witchcraft in the eighteenth century;
the lunacy of the crusades In several
oenturies; the Insanity of attachment
to the institution of slavery that led to
the war of secession; the anti-Semitic
agitations and crusades which continue
even to the present; the insanity that
afflicts hundreds of thousands ©f our
own people at this time as to short outs
to financial prosperity, and patent
oure-alls for every sort and kind of
sooial and industrial ills, etc.
Can It be possible that the Rabbi has
in mind also the insanity of some of
our own people on these shores whose
lunacy makes them irresponsibles re
garding railroads and railroad people,
and the treatment they should receive
at the hands of the Government. As
suredly the rage of the anti-railroad
agitators and thtir insane suggestions,
plans and policies regarding regulation
and Government ownership as a means
to great good for California, would
justify the essayist in classing that and
.similar delusions among other popular
mental aberations.
If it is true, as he puts it, that mad
ness consists in inability to form Judg
ments on certain matters more or less
extensive in agreement with univer
sally known and incontrovertible facts
of nature and life, then assuredly the
rabid and unreasoning number slaves
of prejudice and short-sightedness,
■who blindly push forward the scheme
of Government ownership as a sure and
safe means of securing from the rail
ways that which is due to the Govern
ment, constitute a popularly insane
class, a class by reason of its mental
perversion, unable to think and act
with regard to these matters in harmony
with facts, realities, fixed conditions
and the experiences of the world.
HOW THEY FIGHT.
Lieutenant Churchill of the British
army has been observing the war In
Cuba and describes one of the battles,
when he accompanied the Spanish
troops. This was the action at La Ri
ferma. He declares that it was a battle
typioeJ of all tee engagements In the
rebellion.
From this account it is ascertained
that whila the Spaniards form line of
battle and observe the usual methods
of attacking, retreating and flanking,
and so on, the insurgents follow the
plan of avoiding contest in line of bat
tle; they slipping out of position in
which they would have to return the
nr« of the Spanish army in the regular
way. They scatter, fire upon all occa-
Bions when the enemy is unprepared,
wreck trains, throw dynamite, make
dashes upon sleeping camps, and the
like, and are adepts at hiding, scatter
ing and taking refuge in long grass,
rocky spots and in the mountains.
This style of warfare disgusts the
Lieutenant, who seems to sympathize
with the rebels and to wish them suc
«*»**. He says:
fhe military situation is a most dif
ficult one. The rebels undoubtedly cun
tinue this policy, which will render it
very hard for Spain to suppress or bstrta
them to a great extent. I see no reason
why, if the insurrectionists would only
depend on their military strength, the
war should not end at once. As it is, it
seems that it will never end.
But I don't belif-ve that the world's
history shows a single instance of a na
tion having won independence merely
by burning property, wrecking trains,
firing into sleeping ramps and throwing
dynamite. These are not the acts on
which a nation can be founded. It was
not thus that the American people WOO
their independence from the English
crown. It was not by paltry acts of
brigandage, but by bard-fought actions
in the field, which, although often de
feated and overwhelmed by better dis
ciplined troops, manifested th«* sacred
nature of the cause for which they
were prepared to sacrifice their liv. s.
We do not think that the records of
history will wholly bear the Lieutenant
out. However, as to his comparison of
SACRAMENTO DAILY BECOBD-UKIOK, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1895.
the Cuban rebels with those of the
American revolution, readers of our
own history will recall that our fore
fathers did a great deal of desultory
fighting-; that they avoided many an
engagement in the open; that they re
sorted never to brigandage, but so far
as was possible to all other warlike
means to annoy and surprise the Brit
ish, and that many of the American
successes were helped on by small
bands of patriots in their adroitness in
assaulting and retreating.
Had there been trains to wreck in
those days, and the wrecking would
have furthered the patriotic cause,
doubtless they would have wrecked
trains bearing soldiers or supplies of the
enemy, and have interrupted such
transportation when they could have
done so. They certainly made sorties
in the dark, and burned British ships,
and by more than one trick entrapped
British officers and small commands.
If they had known of dynamite
doubtless they would have used it for
the destruction of works, houses and
even against the troops of the enemy
so far as the laws of civilized warfare
would have permitted.
From all that the public has been
able to gather there have been no more
unfair advantages taken by the Cuban
rebels than by the Spanish troops, nor
have we had any accounts laying at
rocities and outrages at the door of the
rebels, such as is charged the Spanish
commanders have been guilty of re
peatedly.
The Oakland "Times," commenting
upon the liability of ministers to the as
saults of blackmailers, especially when
the latter are women, says that it is
well known that Rev. Charles Hall, the
distinguished clergyman of New York,
makes it a rule to receive no woman
alone in his study, not even in his own
house, except she is perfectly well
known, and beyond any possibility of
being involved in a scandal, and that
this Is a precaution he and many other
minister have found to be necessary.
The occasion for these remarks is the
involvement of a San Francisco cler
gyman in a Scandal charged by a
woman now under arrest, and to whom
the preacher admits having paid $500,
but he says that he did so in order to
fasten the crime of extortion upon her.
The promise of that case is for the en
tire innocence of the man and the un
questioned guilt of the blackmailer. But
the case is pending, and judgment in it
can be awaited before further comment
upon it is indulged in. The fact we wish
to emphasize is, that there is a strong
disposition, due largely to the conduct
of the sensational press, to accept every
charge made as true, and especially
when the charge is by woman against a
I man, and involves his moral purity. But
sensible people know, or ought to know,
that nothing is easier than to lay
such a charge at a man's door with a
woman as the prosecutor, and nothing
is more difficult, usually, than to dis
prove such a charge bo preferred. If
clergymen in New York and elsewhere,
as wise precaution, refuse to meet a
woman alone whom they do not well
know, they do no more than to our
knowledge is done by many business men
in great cities. There are any number of
men whose office rules forbid the recep
| tion of a woman in the private business
office unattended. The reason for the
rule is a good one, and has been estab
lished to be wise in the light of some
bitter experiences. The safe way to do
on the part of everyone when the black
mailer puts in an appearance is to call
in an ofticer and give the party into cus
tody. Under such a practice the in
nocent rarely, if ever, suffer.
Reading over morning coffee yester
day the telegraphed account of the ter
rible tragedy in Kentucky in which a
mob of supposed "good citizens" burned
to death a woman and her paramour in
the dwelling of the former, and in the
presence of her child, one naturally
asks himself if indeed we are living in
the blaze of the civilization of the nine
teenth century and under the broad
protection of the laws? Is it any won
der that Europeans, hearing of these
lynchings and acts of savagery, enter
tain for us opinions that are anything
but complimentary? But there is a mo
dicum of consolation in the fact that
while the unspeakable Turk butchers
Armenians by the tens of thousands,
outrages the wives of the victims, de
ilowers their daughters and spits the in
fanta of unhappy Christians on bayonet
points, these same Europeans have the
power to put a stop to the fearful
scenes but do not move a linger to pre
vent them. As between the shames of
the two sides of the water then, we on
this shore with the disgraceof ourlynch
ings, and the recurrence now and then
of such tragedies as that of Kentucky
the other day, have, after all, less with
which to reproach ourselves than have
the people of the older civilization who
sit idly by and watch the Turk slit the
throats of Armenians and spatter the
brains of their infants upon the curb
stones of the cities of Asia Minor.
It is entirely unlikely that there is
any truth in the story that Russia lias
made a secret compact with Turkey by
which the former is to support the lat
ter in her Armenian policy, and furnish
her money to carry out her scheme of
butchery. In the first place Russia has
not the money to advance, but is, in
fact, hard put to make ends meet at
home. In the next plate Russia has
nothing to gain by aiding the Turk, and
any such compact as is hinted at is op
posed to the traditional policy of the
Russian empire.
Let the hat be lifted in honor of Ne
braska. In that State one Hoover mur
dered his brother-in-law on the i:>th
inst. He was captured, tried and con
victed, and on the ISHh Hoover was no
tified that the death penalty had been
recorded against him. It is celerity such
as that which gives to the law a ma
jesty that makes criminals cower in its
presence. -
NOTE ANJ> OOMMBffT.
Some of the pr«M Mt discussing the
question, " Has arbitration proved
a failure?" A large number have re
sponded in the affirmative, but the rec
ords are against them. Arbitration has
been loyally adhered to and abided by
! in every case we can now recall in
which international issues have been
submitted to the decision of arbi
trators.. The decision may not have
been satisfactory in all cases; some of
the judgments reached may be viewed
by us as unjust; but that is not a mat
ter involved in the question debated.
Has international arbitration, when
ever appealed to, secured the nations
concerned, in peace in amity, and have
the terms of the decrees of Boards of
Arbitration between nations been ad
hered to? The answer must be given
in the affirmative. If, as is true, these
decrees have been loyally carried out,
then arbitration is not a failure, no
matter what elements of justice may
have been abused.
The shrewdest thing to be credited to
President Clevland yet was his refusal
to fall into the English net by insisting
upon the Monroe doctrine as a part of
the law of nations, as being a section, so
to speak, of the international code. The
President, however, held to what is de
fensible, that the doctrine is an Ameri
can declaration only, and that it is not
incorporated as yet Into the interna
tional code. Had he based his claim on
the ground that it is international law.
Lord Salisbury would have had no diffi
culty in showing that he was in error,
and thus scoring a point against the
United States.
Just as a reminder, not by way of
suggestion at all, it i 9 now gently
hinted to chronic swear-offs that this is
the last day of the year, and that to
morrow is their first opportunity—since
the last.
The new Board of Trustees cannot be
gin their new year better than by direct
ing investigation into the sufficiency of
exits from public buildings in this city.
For instance, we know of one church in
which if a panic occurs when the audi
torium is full of people, the entire body
of those attempting to pass out in haste
will be plunged into a narrow hallway
down a concentric flight of steep steps—
a nost unsafe and dangerous exit. In
the case of another church, into which
sometimes a thousand people are
packed, the aisles are often cluttered
with loose chairs. In case of a pairfc
there, these chairs would prove instru
ments of death. There, too, the exits
are wholly insufficient. In the case of a
theater, such filling of aisles and use of
narrow doorways would result in ar
rest and conviction of the offenders.
The Government of the United States
has demanded of Turkey the sum of
$100,000 for the benefit of American
missionaries whose property was de
stroyed in the riots and outrages in
Asia Minor recently. It is too small a
sum. The Porte should have been
made to pay smart money as well as
compensate the sufferers for actual
losses suffered.
New York City is after the National
Democratic Convention and one news
paper has subscribed $10,000 as a
starter. To date there is announced no
competitor. Here now is another
chance for San Francisco.
If some of the unthinking press is to
be taken as authority the establishment
of a State Bureau of Highways should
have been followed at once by the con
struction of good roads in all the coun
ties of the State, and because this has
not resulted, after seven months'
work, the charge is made that the Bu
reau is useless and a fraud. Let us
call a halt there. The creation of the
bureau as expressed in the bill, was for
the purpose of getting at the facts con
cerning waste of road money, the causes
for bad road administration, the gather
ing of data that will enable good road
work to be better promoted by law, to
ascertain how far a spirit of road im
provement can be awakened among the
people by the dissemination of informa
tion and official inspection and meet
ings in all the counties, and so on. No
one having any knowledge of the pur
pose of the bill and of road improvement
work In other States, ever
the bureau to build roads. It has no
power to do so, no money to do it with.
It appears to be following out the exact
purpose of its creation. Without pass
ing upon its work, whether it is ill or
good, common decency demands and
common justice insists, that the bureau
should be given time to make its official
inspection and report before judgment
is passed. After forty years of malad
ministration in road matterp, reform is
not to be effected in a twinkling, nor by
any commission.
Women and. Tlielr Lovers.
It is easy enough to tell a man by his
friends; but it is impossible to tell a
woman by her lovers. One reason for
this is that a man usually shows him
self to his fellows as he is; but It Is im
possible for his fellows to know how he
shows himself to a woman, sc. long as
he is in love with her. In that blissful
ition the rude, off-hand man of
business becomes to his mistress a pict
ure of clumsy courtesy; the coward is
capable of feats of valor from which a
French cuirassier would shrink; the
mean tradesmanly person will stop be
fore the shops of jewelers, hesitate, and
at last enter; the rake will honestly re
gret thr hearts he believes that he has
broken, and, for the moment, stead
fastly purpose to lead a new life. But
if these men find favor in the eyes of
their respective women, it is not for
their pretty manners, nor their courage,
nor their generosity, nor their pure
mrndedness. The women are not re
pelled by their vices; that Is all. They
are not attracted by their iatel]
sumed virtues. Why should they be?
They are not courageous, nor generous,
specially pure-minded themselves;
and as for their pretty manners—per
haps their maids or their children could
tell you something about those that
would astonish you not a little.—Lon

George Grossmlth's Railway.
r«e Grossmith has a railway all
to himself— it is called the Dorset
Square Railway. The line, it seems,
runs through the popular entertainer's
r< sM. nee. from the main terminus (the
reception room), through the hall to
the stables, the other terminus being
the coach-house. Mr. Grossmith is
rather reticent about this, his pet
hobby. Nevertheless, a newspaper rep
ttattve learned that the engine—
Which is a perfect working model,
stands three feet high, and is capable
of attaining a high rate of speed—with
tender and railway line, cost the orig
inal owner about £.">OO. Mr. Grossmith
says that he bought it at a sale for a
mere spng, as the machine was too
small for use and too biff for a toy. One
Of the most humorous sights imagina
ble is to watch Mr .Qrossmlth as, seated
in the tender in company with one or
two juvenile friends, he starts the
train,peering anxiously in front, in order
to avoid any possible accident, turning
on and shutting oil Steam, as occasion
requires, and invariably arriving at the
journey's end -with passengers and
train intact. —Westminster Gazette.

BERLIN INDUSTRIAL EXPOSITION.
Will be Ready for Opening on the
First of Next May.
Magnlfloent Scale Upon Which Ger
many's Products Will bo Dis
played to the World.
Great progress has been made lately
in the preparatory work for the Berlin
Industrial Exposition of 1890. Ques
tions of principle very important for
visitors have been decided, viz.: the
hour of the day until when the expo
sition buildings are to be illuminated
and the price of admission. The wishes
of the public have been largely consid
ered in the settlement of these ques
tions. The entire exposition grounds,
including all parts devoted to entertain
ment as well as the great halls of the
main building, will be radiant with light
to a late hour at night, and a uniform
rate of admission of nfty pfennig will
be charged; only on one day of the
week an admittance fee of one mark
will be charged up to 5 o'clock in the
afternoon.
As the grounds are of vast extent,
it was deemed of great importance to
provide for rapid transit on the same,
and so a railway will be built just out
side of the fence surrounding the
grounds, with about ten stations at the
most prominent points .
The favorable weather prevailing this
fall has enabled the builders to bring
nearly all the buildings under roof be
fore the cold season set in, so that the
part of the work which will not be im
peded by the cold weather can be fin
ished in the coming months. This in
sures the completion of the structures
at an early day, and the fact that the
exposition will be quite ready on the
opening day, the Ist of May. next.
The question of the transit to and
from the exposition has been satisfact
orily settled. The Stadtbahn and Ring
bahn will expedite trains every three
minutes, carrying vast masses of vis
itors from the center of the city in a
few minutes to the grounds, and three
new lines of electrical tramways will
connect all parts of Berlin directly with
the exposition. In addition to these
many horse car and omnibus lines will
be running there, while a great num
ber of steamers will ply in the same
direction on the River Spree.
The fisheries exhibit, which will com
prise all Germany, will contain dis
plays of everything appertaining to the
fish industry, from the breeding and
catching of the denzens of the deep to
their preparation as food, and will de
vote Itself to the object of promoting
the consumption of fish food by the
people to a more extended degree than
has been the case heretofore. And not
only this exhibit, but all the other main
exhibits will be on a grand scale, as
care will be taken to display not only
the finished products, but to show the
process of manufacture, so that the be
holder can watch the articles as they
grow from the raw material until they
are ready for use.
The Colonial Exposition, which is un
der the especial patronage of the impe
rial authorities and is supported by all
Germans who have done good service
in the exploration of Africa, is de
voted to the purpose of increasing the
enthusiasm for colonial enterprises in
Germany. The exhibition, as it is
planned, will not only display all which
the fauna and flora of the German col
onies possess that is worth seeing, but
it is the intention to bring natives of
different parts of Africa to Berlin and
show them in their household occupa
tions, not in the form of a mere idle
entertaining spectacle, but to demon
strate their adaptability for culture
md civilization.
In the chemical department popular
scientific lectures will be arranged,
and particular attention will be de
voted in a separate pavilion to the
struggle between electrical light and
the incandescent gas burners, so that
the visitors can get an idea of the true
"inwardness" of the mysterious work
ings of some of the greatest industries
of the day, who try to cover their manu
factures by innumerable patents.
In the clothing exhibit the history of
fashions will be elucidated in a mu
seum of costumes in which the visitors
can study on hundreds of artistic fig
ures how our ancestors used to dress on
all possible occasions.
The horticultural exhibition, prepar
arations for which had to be made on
an area of about ten acres a year ago,
in order to be enabled to make a cred
itable display, will doubtless demon
strate that the gardeners of Berlin keep
even pace with their townsmen de
voted to other pursuits and to their col
leagues in other countries.
In short, thousands of skillful hands
are busily engaged in the effort to pre
sent on the Ist of May next an exposi
tion to the world, which will be ready
J and finished in all its parts.
The old Rtory of Prometheus is a parable,
an allegory. * Prometheus was on terms of
intimacy with the gods. From them he
stole fire, and gave it to men. For this sin
he was bound to the rocks of Mount Cau
casus, and vultures were set upon him.
They only ate his liver. This grew again
as fast as it was pecked away. Are his snf
ferings to be imagined? Yes, and realized.
Take a modern interpretation of the par
able. There is no cooking without fire. In
cooking and eating the mischief lies. The
stomach is overtasked, the bowels become
clogged, they cannot dispose of the food
that is given them. The impurities back
up on the liver. Then come the vultures.
The sufierincrs from an outside, visible
hurt, arc a mere pin-scratch to the torments
of a diseased liver.
But, moderns are ahead of the ancients.
There is a sequel to the old story. Dr.
Pierce is the author. His " Golden Med
ical Discovery" is more than equal to the
vultures,of dyspepsia and its kindred dis
eases. Every atom of the "Discovery" is
an active agent against disease. It flies
like a ferret, wherever it is sent. It is as
sure as the needle of the compass. There
is no more need of suffering from dyspepsia
than there is of hanging one's self.
Mr. W. Rogers, of jo,- Grayson St., Louisville,
Ky. has this to say for himself and the "Golden
Medical Discover}-": " I wai a dyspeptic. I had
not had a comfortable night in six years. I have
taken three bottles of Dr. Pierre's Golden Med
ical Discovery. I a;n now fifty years old. I feel
thirty years younger." Yours truly.
Send 21 cents in one-cent stamps to Dr. R. V.
Pierce, Buffalo, N. V., and get Dr. Pierces Med
ical Adviser. It is a book ofiooS pages, profusely
illustrated. It will give you complete knowledge
of the human system in plain words.
